itutingVon \ \\ _„' Wednesday ?Corning, October 31, 1855, WILLIAM BREWSTER, i EDITORS, SAM. G. WHITTAKER. Thanksgiving Day. Governor Pollock has appointed Monday, the 22d day of November as a day of Thanks giving, Prayer and Praise to Almighty God by the people of the Commonwealth. SHOWED HIS COLORS.—That exquisite sheet the Blair County Whig, has strong tendencies towards Locofocoistu. We dislike renegades. REVOLVTIONIZING.-A letter from Ga. vazzi to the New York Crusader, states that the people of Italy are on the point of a revo lution, and intimations are also thrown out that the people of Sicily are moving for a union with Sardinia. OFFICIAL VOTE OF GEORGIA.—The whole vote in the State for Governor is 104,598—an increase of 9832 over the vote in the guberna torial election of 1853. Johnson, Dem., has received 54,842, Andrews, K. N., 43,512, and Overby, Temperance, 6,244 votes. Johnson's majority over Andrews is 11,320,0ver Andrews and Overby 5086. SW-Col. Kinney it is stated, has come to an understanding with the opposing claimants to the Mosquito lands, and the united forces of these parties will be brought to hear upon the government to induce it to ratify the title un• der which they jointly claim. Riot—ln election riot in Baltimore City, between the Americans and Democrats on last Thursday, resulted in the death of one man and the dangerously wounding of some six or eight more. The fight lasted two or three hours, and a large number of citizens were pre vented from voting, in consequence. The K. Nothing candidate was elected by 75 majority. FUNNY.—The Register, of Hollidaysburg, is rather snappish over our article alluding to the County Fair. We penned the article in ques tion, through the soheitation of a number of our citizens, but we deny that old Huntingdon ever did or ever will solicit the co-operation of Blair. But, if it becomes necessary, we will send some of our products up, to show how far we surpass our tender "daughter." INGENIOUS PROTECTIVE.-The Dauphin and Susquehanna Railroad has introduced on the line a very simple and inexpensivo device for preventing the intrusion of cattle along the track. 4 platform of triangular wooden rods, a few inches apart, is placed lengthwise between the rails—the ground below having previously been excavated to the depth of six or seven ilia road, so as to make it necessary to cross the platform to gain entrance to the railway.— It appears that cows will have nothing to do with the arrangement; they turn away from the platform and the railway with perfect con tempt, although they oould very readily cross it if they had the coura, and disposition. BuoAn Tor Irsats.—A workman engaged on the Road, near Stonerstown, made a miracu lous escape on Monday, the 22d inst. He was engaged in putting in braces, on the trestle work, at the distance of seventy-five feet from the groand. • His foot slipping he fell some dis• lance, when he providentially caught hold of a projecting piece of timber, and succeeded in maintaining his hold until rescued from his pe rilous situntion. Another workman was se verely injured by a spike which ha was driving into the wood. It broke, and striking him in the face knocked out several teeth and injured his face considerably. A number of coal cars for the Company baud been completed, but are not used upon the road. We understand that the Stonerstown Bridge has been crossed by the locomotive. The road may be said to be completed. REDCCIVC THE PRICE or Ft.outt.The pen. pie East are getting their floor at a much re duced price, by means of association. A num ber of the citizens of Concord, N. H., (where flour is selling at $12,50 per bbl.,) recently got up a subscription and sent an agent to the West to purchase 300 Ws. Ho returned a few days ago and delivered it to subscribers at $B,- 75 per bbl. This plan has been adopted in several towns in the East. The citizens of Thompsonville, C 0.., recently united in pur chasing two hundred and fifty-two barrels of flour from the manufacturers at Rochester, and it was delivered at their doors at $9,36 per bar rd. This Ives a saving of two dollars and a half or three dollars on a barrel. The "Bread League" in Charlestown, Mass., has been orga nized, and five hundred barrels of flour have keen subscribed for. Why cannot something of this kind be done in Huntingdon ? Certain ly the necessity exists to as great an extent hero as elsewhere. GRAHAM'S MAGAZINE FOR lBo6.—The new volutnn of this excellent monthly magazine, .commencing with the January No., 1856, will' contain over twelve hOndred pages of choicest reading matter, steel and wood engravings and music.

Ihe Novels and Romances of Graham are univer• sally acknowledged to excel in beauty and in• serest any others published in America. All the departments have at their head persons of well established reputation for literary acquire ments. The terms are exceedingly moderate for so valuable a work. One copy, one year in advance, $3 ; two copies, $5; five copies, (and one to Agent or getter up of Club,) $lO ; 11 copies, and one to Agent, $2O ; for $6, one co. py will be sent 3 years. Additions to clubs at the same rate as club sent. Specimen copies sent gratis to those desiring to get up clubs.— All communications to be addressed to Atre us See, No. 106 Chestnut St., Phila. The Rio Grande Inaian War. Although we are not much disposed to fa vor any of the Texan incrusione into the terri torial domain of Mexico, we must confess to something like sympathy with the Texans in their present war with the border Indians.— Our renders arc not ignorant of the causes which led to this invasion of of Mexico, as ev ery fresh mail from the South has brought us lamentable ac counts of the robberies and mur der committed upon the frontier settlers by ro ving bands of of Indians, whom it seemed im possible to catch or identify. So general was the terror caused by these repented visitations, that in some sections the settlers were forced to abandon their habitations, and seek shelter is leas exposed positions. Had the filibusters who lately crossed the Rio Grande to conquer Northern Mexico, and establish the new repub lic of Northern Mexico, devoted their attention to the stoppage of Indian depredations, it would have been far more creditable to their good sense than the extravagant enterprise they went upon. While they were thus busily en gaged in paying attention to the affairs of the neighboring republic, the merciless savage was spreading havoc and desolation among their own people. They were somewhat slow to profit by the lesson, but having met with a mortifying disappointmer.t in Mexico, and been cast off by the leader upon whom they based all their hopes, they were at last driven, through sheer lack of any other excitement, to make an effort to take care of their own suffering people. From the liberation of Nothern Mex ico they have been forced to turn to the libera tion of Texas. A number of expeditions have been sent against the Indians, but all have utterly failed except the one headed by Captain Callahan,— Some of them recaptured a few horses, hut none could get within fighting distance of the Indians, the plain reason being that the mar antlers came front the other side of the Rio Grande, and retreated thither as soon as pun sued. toiled States troops did the best they could to protect the settlements, but as long as the marauders found a safe refuge so near the settlements which they attacked, is not posssi ble to stop them. Large parties of savages appeared simultaneously in sections of the state widely distant from each other, and, mounted upon fleet horses, for the dexterious manage men of which they are famous, they bade de fence to all pursuers. It was well known that the Lipans occupied a position on the Mexican side of the river, but at length it was ascertain ed that they were not only culprits—that, in fact, there Was a collection of remnants of va rites desperate and savage tribes front the tni ted States engaged in these outrages. It is al so alleged that among the marauders were many Mexicans, disguised as Indians, but of this we have seen no evidence. editorial article in:the New Orleans Picayune thus:states the fact whiebdi. to Captain Callahan's inv. "It seems that, a short time since, a band of mingled Seminoles, Lipans and Mexicans, af ter committing several murders, were watched and seen to cross with a large quantity of sto len mules, horses, cattle, be., nearly opposite Eagle Pass. This information was communi cated toCaptain Callahan, and led him to the . signal vengeance upon "The chief seat of the Seminoles is near the town of San Fernando, about thirty-five miles from the river ; it was well known that here Wild Cat and his band were encouraged and supported by the Mexican authorities, and that lie had held out inducuments for the Lipans, Mescaleros and other tribes to jo'n him. This whole section of Mexico has long been noted as a nest of thieve, and murderers .Large num bers of runaway slaves had congregated there, protected from pursuit and recaptured by the laws of Mexico and it was shrewdly expected that they were also in league with the Indians, and participated in their marauding expedi tions. Several attempts have from time to time been made by the owners some of these slaves to recover them, which have always been frus trated by the Mexicans, and particularly the authorities of the town of Piedras Negras, op posite Eagle Pass where Capt. Callahan cross .ed, and where he was at last accounts. The duplicity with which these authorities and pee ple acted towards Capt. C. and his command, and their endeavors to entrap him, by their false and treacherous offers of assistance, into a place where, as they deemed certain destruc tion awaited the whole party folly justify the opinions which the people of Texas have long entertained, and have freely expressed regar ding them:. The 010-he's—Pyramid. "Tun DRMOCRATIC PICRAMID.—Let us look al the glorious Democratic pyramid that has been erected in a few weeks, by the indomita• blo masses of the Democracy, aroused to ac• tion by the attempted usurpations of fusion combinations : MAINE! • TEXAS! ! I • GEORGIA 111 ALABAMA I I I I VIRGINIA !11111 . INDIANA II!1 ! ! TENNESSEE ! !I!! 1 I MARYLAND! NORTH CAROLINA I 1111 PENNSYLVANIA! !!!!!!1! And a Gain of 50,000 in OHIO ! ! ! How could Know Nothingism help but full from such a giddy height 7—Globe. That might possibly be a magnificent pyre, mid for Democracy, were you not, as a cotetn pantry says, under the necessity of stealing the timber. Maine is sot Democratic,—Texas for the first time in its history, is not wholly Dem ocratic,—Tennessee is half and half,—in Mar. ylnnd the election is yet to come off, and what you get of it you can put in the pyramid, or the corner of your eye. Pennsylvania is not Dem ocratic,—you have a minority Canal Commis sioner, and do not reach your vote of last year by many thousands, when you were beaten by about 40,000. In Ohio, you are like the boy at school, who exultingly boasted to his friends that he was next to head, but had toadmit that the class consisted of him and another boy.— Great pyramid that,—stands out in bold relief in the Globe's imagination, and nowhere else ; but suppose it was a reality, what then ? We believe the Globe constructed one about three times as high, two years since,—and if "Sam's" family fell from that, they didn'tcomplain very much-:-somebody else did though,—said they were ground to powder, and blamed the bloody Cayennes,—and somebody else will have ores: sion for blame again in 1856. We pity them but can't help it. The editor of the Globe can si; beneath the shade of that pyramid, if there's enough of it to cast a shadow—but if it does, when it finds itself buried beneath the wreck, it will please remember with gratitude, that it is indebted to tut for a timely warning and friend ly admonition.

The Murder of Graf and Hadel• CUMBERLAND, Oct. 23, The trial of Miller for the murder of Graf, the young man in the employ of Dr. Hedel, was brought to a close to day by a verdict of guilty of murder in the first degree. The evidence was nearly the same as that on his trial for the murder of Dr. Modal. Ennuis Election—A despatch from St. Louis says that the free state party have polled 3,000 votes for Ex-Gov. Reeder, as a candidate for de. legate to Cangress from Kar.zas, None hut actual residents for thirty days were permitted to vote at this election, which was held on the 9th. The election of Wnitefield, the delegate elected at the former election, in which the Free State party would not participate, is to be con. tested. Hard to please—A German woman in Lan• caster, who had married three husbands all liv tog, had some trouble the other day, on the men• ing of the three to claim her, which to choose. She finally selected No. 3. The End of Arctic Exploration. It has been reserved for two officers of the American Navy, remarks the Philadelphia Sun, to reach the greatest northern and southern lat itudes of any polar explorers. Wilkes, having almost touched the southern point of the earth's axis, and Kane having come even nearer to the northern extremity; Wilkes discovered an ant arctic continent, and Kane found the great Arc tic Sea, which was only supposed to exist, and perhaps an Arctic continent. Now, unless we feel inclined to send our marble tablets witlt engraved superscriptions, commemorative of these achievements, to be hung on the ends of the poles, we must consider that nothing more can be gained to science, and nothing achieved for humanity from further polar exploration.— God in his wisdom, has fixed icy barriers tc hu man progress and has thrown the pall of night for six consecutive months over the eye of man. We know that a north-west passage actually ex ists ; but that it is impracticable for purposes of commerce, the world's heart has been set at rest from its sad beating for the fate of Sir John Franklin. The location of the magnetic pole is accu rately enough defined to adjust the variations of the compass, and the mystery of the Auro. ra Borealis may never be solved, and yet the world goes on. For all practical purposes we know enough, and therefore we may presume that the Kane expedition is the last that will be fitted out. All that daring and perseverance could effect has been accomplished, and it mat ters now but little, what capes, headlands, seas or mountains are among the eternal glaciers and great icebergs of those regions I We can not afford to sacrifice more for the little good that may result; tie cannot peril valuable lives in the hope to penetrate the illimitable solit udes which "seemed lengthening as they go." Kane has achieved thecrowning glory in po lar adventure, and when he has contributed to the scientific world, the result of his observa tion, he must seek new fields in inure genial climes, for his spirit of chivalrous reseal ch.— We should like to have an expedition raised at the government's expense to include Fremont, Kane, Bayard Taylor, Wilkes, and other expe rienced travellers, with liberty assigned them to shape their course wherever they thought ad venture would be most romantic and the fields of exploration most untrodden. But let the north, with the bear and the walrus, its stunted Esquimaux and all its darkness and solitude, remain the sealed book which the Deity seem ed to have intended. "Look Out for Pun." "Some of the signers of the "Circular" cal led upon the editor of the Globe last week, and desired hint to give up the paper, which he re fused doing."— Iluntniud on Journal, 17th Oct. "Was it a dream you had Mr. editcou of the Journal—or have you determined to LIE your. eels out of your unpleasant position. Not a single signer of the "circular " has ever "desir ed us to give up the paper." Neither do we believe that any one of them, ever stated to you that we had been called upon and the paper de. madded. Give us the names of "some of the signers" who, you say, called upon us. We are afraid you are getting no better fast—the Pro. fessor must put you through. second time."— Huntingdon Globc,24th October. • Mr.Elllige - orAT:ifiiiitrigiiou ;ourun d~— I have just been shown a copy of the Hunting. don Globe, published in your borough, in which I find an editorial article, calculated to deney the truth of an allegation you made, relative to a certain 'Circular' which was published in that paper, previous to the election. Now as I am. ono of the persons whose names are attached to the "Circular," and one of the number who in. formed you that application had been made for the paper which I did sign, I deem it but a mere act of justice on my part towards you, to make the following statement Previous to the late election, a paper was extensively circa. toted in this township, by a prominent Demo. crat, containing merely the query, addressed to you—" Will you support the fusion ticket I" Now being a Whig, and opposed to any coali. lion with Democrats, and presuming that the paper was to request you to oppose fusion, I signed it, with many of my neighbors, under that belief. I was astonished and angered the next week on finding my name attached to the "Circular" which the Globe published, it con• taining the very sentiments to which I was op. posed, and to which, 1 assure you, I never did and never could be persuaded to subscribe my name. I made it my duty to call upon the ed itor of the Globe, fur the purpose of seeing if anything had been added to the query above named, after the signatures had been procured. After a search, Mr. Lewis informed me, the pa. per could 110 i be found ! These statements I ' feel called upon to make, much as I dislike ha. ving my name appear in print. Yours truly, ROBERT REED." Foreign. Another arrival from abroad lately. No ins portant engagement has taken place between the contending parties; but evils of war are spreading over a more extended sphere. The fleets of the Allies being liberated by the des. traction of the Russian vessels at Sevastopol, cruising round seeking for an opportunity of burning and destroying the property of the en emy on land and sea. It is thought that Odes sa, a large and important city, will be an ear• ly object to attack. Pe'rekop has been threatened by the allied forces, but their advance is checked for the present. A French force is gathering on the Danube. A fleet of the allied vessel is before Odessa, preparing to commence an immediate bombardment. Ten thousand men are employed in making a road from Balaklava to the allied camp at Sevastopol. A British fleet has been sent to Naples. During the three weeks pre ceding the fall of Sevastopol, the Russian losses were over :12,000 men, exclusive of deaths by disease A battle has been fought in Asia by the Russians, under Houravieff, and the Turks, un• der Ali Pasha, in which the latter won him. self taken prisoner, and has 300 men killed.— It seems to have been a cavalry fight. Kars still held out, but the garrison was reduced to great extremity, and Omar Pasha was advan• cing from Batoum to attempt to raise the siege. At Sweaburg the Russians were actively repa ring the fortifications. Nineteen Russian mer• chant vessel have been captured oft' the coast of Finland, and ten more burned at the mouth of the Sells. An alliance between Prince Na poleon and the Princess Royal of England is rumored. It is announced that the Danish government has invited all the maritime pow ers, including United States, to meet in Con. geese at Copenhagen to settle the Sound Dues. In Greece the ministry have resigned and a new cabinet been formed. BALLOON A SONNSION.-BOWL Goddard made a balloon ascension from Cincinnati last week on horseback. The horse and his rider reach. cal the earth in safety, after ascending to a great height. An indiviclual may endanger his own neck if he chooses, but what right ins ha to punish a horse in this way? Resigned—ft is sahiliat Gen. Simpson, the commander•in•chiof of the British forces in the Crimea, has tendered his resignation, but the Government refuses to accept. Kidnappers On Saturday morning last our community was thrown into a high excitement by a most outrageously bold attempt, to arrest and carry off a colored man, without any show of right or authority. As nearly as we can getat them, the circumstances appear to be, that the color ed man hid arrived in town the evening before and had lodged all night with Snyder Carr, a colored citizen of Gaysport. In the morning he started in the cars for Pittsburg, but in pas sing through Gaysport, an individual who has given his name as Jones PARSONS, Jr., a stranger in our community, got into the cars also, and the colored man discovering him about the time the train got to the upper end of Gaysport, jumped off, and the Slave-Catch er,Sidnapper, or whatever nifty be his vocation jumped off too, and with the assistance of a chivalrous Democrat Offlee-holder, on the Por tage road, who glories in the name C-o-l-o-ii-e.l Hiram Lentz, and luxuriates iu the next thing to a sinecure at the rate of sotne $2 a day of the people's money, arrested the poor darkey, and took him to Is ellerman's tavern, where they placed him on a horse, and under took to ride him on; alleging we believe, that he was a runawayolave, and bad stolen ahorso. But the man resisted, and called for help, pro testing that he had committed no offence and was about to be taken away, without claim or authority : whereupon Gen- Potts, Col. Piper, and perhaps some others present, with a hu manity and regard for the right that must ever be greatly to their praise, interfered, and de manded of the suspected man stealer, his au thority for the arrest informing him at the same time. that if he bad a legal claim to the man, they would assist in the execution of the law, against him; that the people here are law abiding people, and that the laws of Pennsyl. vania must be respected—,to which very prop. er demand and *marks the scoundrel retorted, by tl rainy Pennsylcania and her lame d and declaring that lie didn't care a ti—n fur tlrent : that lie seas not acting under them!! Failing to produce any writ or authority whatever, for arresting, detaining or removing the colored man, the affrighted soul was al lowed to go; and Messrs. Potts and Piper we believe, got out a warrant against Mr Parsons kunior, and had him arrested on a charge of idnapping and breach of the Peace. He was taken before Justice Con and bound over in the sum of $2,000 to answer at Court, Messrs. H. L. Patterson and R. M.. Lemon, being sureties for him. In the afterpart of the day however, his sureties surrendered him, and were released ; and Mr. Kellerman of Gaysport came to the rescue and saved him from limbo by taking the place of Messrs. Patterson and Lemon, as his surretv. And thus the matter stands at the time we write. The darkey is understood to have taken pee age on the underground railroad. At all events he is among the missing, and the merciful Col. Lentz didn't help him over the Portage.—Hol. Register. TREE Love' IN New YORK.—There is a society in New York calling itself "The Pro. growl.. Union Club," devised by Alfred Bris bane, and a number of Socialists and Women's Rights men and worgen, of loose moral notions. The Tribune has a long expose of its objects and practises, and according to the account it is a most damnable system that would not be tolerated a day is any other . place except the hotbed of moral prostitution in which it flour lobes. This Club we are told meets on Mon day and Thursday evenings of each week over Taylor's Refreshment Saloon, No. 555, Broad way, and is composed of between five hundred and six hundred members, with an average at tendance of about half of those numbers. The Tribune says: "At these semi-weekly meetings, the mem hors of the Club and the strangers whom they introduce walk talk, walk sing flirt, and en t. selecting his or her associate tra t OrAlN — tir traction and affinities, and always with' a due regard to Individual Sovereignty. Occasional. ly the audience is amused, entertained, or bor ed—as the case may be—by n speech from the chief, or some other great man in the Free- Love Israel, who nosy bo impressed with the idea that he has an important message to coin municate. Although the exercises, topics, and amusements indulged in take a wide range, the main idea which draws and holds together this motley party is Free Love, or Passional Attrae lion, as some of them prefer to call it. They repudiate the present system of marriage, deny the tight of society or the State to interfere in any way with the subject ally further than it may rightfully interfere with any civil contract, and contend that marriage may be limited or life partnership, at the option of the man and woman who are the sole rightful judges of the manner of its beginning and termination. A Jew—The newly elected Mayor of London. Snow—The first snow of the year in this place, fell on Thursday lest. A Mang Governor—Mr. Johnston the new Governor of California, is from Indiana and now only 30 years of age. Wrong—To place men who are Locofocos at heart, on the Whig State Committee. We could mention one at least. A Wager—The people of Blair Co. brag o ver big apples ; we'll bet "a jigger all 'round," that Taylor & Cremer can produce better, and let the next fair decide. Burma. in EFFMY.—James Campbell, the Papish Post Master General was burnt in e@'i• gy in Tyrone City, Blair Co., Pa., last week. It appears that ho had removed the P. M. of that place, for holding American principles, and substituted another. "It is appointed untaman once to die."—One grave-digger at Norfolk, assisted, during the late pestilence nt that place, in burying twenty three hundred dead bodies, when he died, and was consigned to mother earth, to mingle his ashes with those who had gone bailee him. parri6, In this borough on Tuesday the 16th inst., by Rev. 0. 0.
