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. duly 18, 185 G. **if Votiticat State Executive Committee.

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.

" LIBERTY AND UNION, NOW AND FOREVER, ONE AND INSEPARABLE." HUNTINGDON, PA., WEDNESDAY, JULY 23, 1856. 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 seven. 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. one. 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?

We have received a graphic account of a grand demonstration of the "unterrified democracy" at Tyrone city in this county on'the night of the sth of July, and regret we have not room for more than a mere no. lice of it. The writer says it had been an nounced that "distinguishe d speakers" were to be present, and that Michael Dan Blagehan and "pitch in" Major Leet, (Supervisor of the Penna. Canal) answer ed on that score. A respectable Hunting don county Democrat who left soon after the meeing commenced pronounced it, on his way home, "the greatest fizzle he hod seen for 10 years." Not more than 50 persons were present, and the writer feels certain that not more than 15 of them will vole for Buchanan. At the close of the meeting three cheers were given for Fre mont and Dayton.—Hollidaysburg Reg. Workingmen and Mechanics, Remember that the Democratic nominee for the Presidency advocal,d the reduction of your wages to ten rents a (My SECTIONAL PARTIES. The Lancaster Examiner, an old line Whig paper, which proved itself to be of the true grit, by refusing to be transferred to any other party, is out for Fremont and Dayton. The Examiner asks whether. there is a single proposition to which any Whig of Lancaster county, or elsewhere can object. We see none. Is there n single proposition to which the supporters of Fillmore's administration can consistent ly object? We challenge the naming of one. The Intelligencer argues that "self-re spect would inevitably lead tho South to secession" in case Fremont and Dayton 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 ing the first time that a sectional nomina -1 Lion has been made, it is iu reality the fifth. If "self-respect" did not cause the North to secede when Jackson and Calhoun were elected, what peculiar dignity is there at, Whed to the South that should require them to secede on the election of Fremont and Dayton ! _ Kansas. Mr. Howard, of Michigan, one of the members of the Congressional Commission delivered a speech a few evening ago, at the Fremont ratification meeting in the course of which he said : ~ 1 [ assert that if all the tyranny inflicted upon our forefathers, by the kings of Great Britain, were collected together and mul tiplied by ten, I could bring facts to prove that the poor settlers in . Kansas have suf fered more than the whole of them." This is the opinion of a man who, having been in Kansas, laboriously attending a legal investigation of the troubles in Kan sas. gives thus an indication of the result. PENNSYLVANIANS IN KANSAS.-A private letter from a member of the Methooist Church. formerly n resident of Pittsburg, dated I,ecompton, Kansas June 15, says that there are good number-of Pittsburg era in that place, and there would have been more, but they have been driven out by the Missourians. About eight or nine days previous to date, the Pittsburgers had throe teams, loaded with provisions from the Missouri river, captured by the Misouri robbers, and had hard work them selves to make their escape. They got home in another direction, Similar outra ges are being committed every day, keep ing the farmers in constant dread. The writer says that Southern ruffians are pouring into the Territory in great num bers. Clay and Webster. There are some northern politicians who habitually endeavor to excuse themselves for favoring the extension of slavery, by professing to be followers of Henry Clay and Daniel Webster, Nothing could be more unjust to the memory of those great statesmen In their latest speeches, they aairmed in the most positive manner their undying hostility to the extension of sla very. Mr-Clay said : "I repent that I never can and never will vote, and no earthly power will ever make mo vote to spread Slavery over Ter ritory where it does not exist." And Nir. Webster with scarcely less.em phasis, enunciated his determination thus: .(IVhenever there is a substantive good to be done, whenever there is a foot of land to be prevented from becoming slave terri tory, I am ready to assert the princip!e of the exclusion of Slavery." A Query. Wonder if "Pennsylvania's favorite son" has found out whether he has a drop of Democratic blood in his veins—or not ? Also, whether he adheres to his said-to•be original determination to "let it out?" Will some of our democratic friends, hereabouts, answer? far The Fillmore papers throughout the State are rapidly falling into the sup port of Fremont and Dayton. After the present week there will not be five papers in the State that adhere to Fillmore. The old lino Whig papers in the State, without a single oxcoption go warm and strong for Fremont and Dayton.
