For tke Huntingdon Journal.
These many graves like arches firm and strong,
Boofi ng death's palace, here are strewn along
The greensward, while like whited turrets stand
The marble monuments, on either hand.
Beneath in silence and thick darkness spread
The clayey couches of the elum'bring dead,
Where etill as fallen snow, upon earls breast,
Like bridal robes, the folded cerements rest.
With hands neross'd, and eyelids drooping low,
And deep solemnity on every brow,
They in "prophetic stillness" wait and watch,
The final trumpet's signal note to catch.
Hero sleep in Jesus those who died in faith,
"And from their labors rest," the Spirit saith,
While "their works follow them." How sweet
the sleep I
From which none ever "shall awake to weep.' ,
They went through tribulation up to God,
Going and weeping—yet could kiss the rod—
" Faint yet pursuing"—'till they found release
From all their toils, in everlasting peace.
How their blesied memories come o'er our hears
Like sunset glories when the day departs;
How pensively we wander rear their dust,
To trace the recollections of the just.
Bless'd memories indeed 1 When every fault
Lies buried with them in the charnel vault,
And only what was good in thorn appears,
Still mellowing in the receding years.
Each gentle word, and each approving honk,
And e'en the glance intending love's rebuke,
And little favors that were day by day
Scattered by them through every household way.
Each sacrifice, and self.appointed task,
That even Love did not expect or ask,—
Those nameless charities that sweeten life,
And make ns stronger for its hourly strife.
Tho father's connsel, and the mother's prayer,
The brother's fondness, and the sister's care,
Tho wife's sweet constancy, the hnsband's truth,
The friendship green in age, as %was in youth.
These are the things in life too ort forgot ;
But when we linger in this hallowed spot,
Our tears revive their meneries o'er the tomb,
As showers renew the earth with vernal blow.

Union State Convention,
WASHINGTON, July 15th,
The Pennsylvania delegation are prepa
ring a call for a Union Convention of Re
publicans, Americans, and all other ele
ments opposed to the Administration's po
licy and the Cincinnati platform, to meet
at Harrisburg on the second Wednesday of
September, for the purpose of forming an
electoral ticket which shall represent these
interests fairly, and concentrate all efforts
in one practical direction. This movement
finds favor generally, and Inspires a confi
dent hope of ultimate success. The re
commendation is already signed by most
of the experienced members.
Keep it Before the People.
That, at the instigation of the present
Democratic administration, four printing
offices have been destroyed in Kansas, be
cause they stood in the way of forcing
slavery into the Territory. This action of
Pierce, with all tho rest that he has done,
is sustained by the party, and endorsed by
Buchanan ; and yet we find those in tho
Free North who are still willing to sustain
Bill for the .44n;is - sion of the Stale of
Kansas into the Union, as it passed the
Whereas, The people of Kansas have

Will the Whigs Support Mr. Buchanan.
We are often asked whether the Whigs
are going to support Mr. Buchanan in this
campaign. We will give a candid answer
to the inquiry. There ate a few old Whigs
who will give him their support. They are
of the following classes of persons, all of
course very respectable.
1. A few personal friends who have re
cei”ed special marks of favor from Mr.
Buchanan, and whose gratitude is stronger
than their public duty. This is a respec
table error. They still condemn his prin
ciples, and believe them dangerous to-the
country ; but their sense of personal obli
gations constrains them. Of this class
there are about five in the county.
2. There is another highly respectable
class who will support him. They are
large capitalists and operators, owners of
Cotton Mills, Machines Shops and Coal
Mines. They believe that Mr. Buchanan's
scheme of reducing the wages of labor will
help them, and enable them to compete
with Europe in manufacturing and min
ing. They are honest in their mollies,
being guided of course by their own inter
est without special regard to the interests
of the country. Their number is about
3. There is another less respectable
class, though the most respectable in their
own estimation. They are commonly
called aristocrats. Mon fond of their
wealth or their descent. Men who fancy
their blood to be purer than the masses—
generally an upstart nobility, who feel
proud to associate with great men, and ride
in coaches. They live in marble houses
and country villas, filled with daubs of pic
tures which they suppose to be from the
pencil of Titian or Corregio. They num
ber fire.
4. There is an imitation aristocracy,
some of whom will take the same course,
being moved partly by the - last mentioned
causes and partly by the hope of low wa
ges. They are called iron masters ; and
number about three.
5. There is another class, not far more
contemptible, called parasites. They havo
no particular business to aid, nn character
to lose, but being unproductive, worthless,
limber plants, are glad to be permitted to
wind themselves around any substantial
prop. They number about thirteen.
U. The above include all the apostates.
Those who. vote for curs; who drink at the
Wheatland fountain, and hurrah to pay
for it, are no apostates, they never had
any principles to abandon, How they will
go depends on the last treat,
P. S. We had nearly omitted a very
important miscellaneous cause or two.
7: Those who could not get or retain of
fice in their own party, and whose only
principle was ogice. This class numbers.
Also a fugitive editor, who has been
"all things to all men," "everything by
turns and nothing long."
We have heard of no laboring men who
have gone over. Ten cents a day is too
little for hot weather.
This we believe is a faithful history of
all our losses. Whether Mr. Buchanan
will find it his gain we leave to results.
Our accessions from tho Democratic
party have been ten , imes as many.
Albany Speech•
. - - ---
Nothing wo have lately seen has given
us so much pain as the speeches recently
made by Mr, Fillmore, at Albany and Ro
chester. He seems to know no North, but
recognizes the South as the whole Union.
Mr. Fillmore had many warm friends in
this county. But they all love freedom
more than they love him, or any other
man. Unfortunately, too, the American
Convention that nominated him struck out
the main feature of the American platform.
It ignored tho anti-popery principle and
admitted the catholic delegates from Lou
isiana. Mr. Fillmore evidently does not
expect Northern votes. But here is a part
of his Albany speech. We coincide en
tirely in the excellent remarks on it in the
Strasburg Beo. Mr. Fillmore said :
But, sir, what do we see ? An
exasperated feeling between the North
and the South, on the most exciting of all
topics, resulting in bloodshed and organi
zed military array. But this is not all, sir.
We see a political party presenting candi
dates for the Presidency and Vice Neel
deney. selected in the Free States alone
for the first time, with the avowed purpose
of electing these candidates by suffrages of
one part of the Union only, to rule over
the whole United States. Can it be possi
ble that those who are engaged in such a
measure can have seriously reflected upon
the consequences which must inevitably
folloto in case of success? (Cheers).—
Can they have the madness or the Jolly to
, believe that our Southern brethren would
I submit to be governed by such a (Iv
Magistrate? (('hem)

The Intelligencer argues that "self-re

are elected, for the simple reason that both
arc at present residents of Free States ?
It says this is the first time in the history
of the government that any party has dared
to take both candidates from Free States.
This shows how little it knows of the po
litical history of the country. In 1824 the
Democratic party took both its candidates
from Slave States ; as it did again in 1828,
when Jackson and Calhoun were elected.
In the same year, J. Q. Adams and Rich.
and Rush, both from Free States, were
run in opposition. In 1886, Harrison and
Granger, both from Free States, were run
by the Whigs. So that instead of this be
