We feel that the time is come when silence

We must preserve our northern rights, and

Another Railroad Horror.
Another awful disaster occurred on the North
Pennsylvania Railroad, on Thursday last near
Philadelphia. About one thousand persons
mostly children, started on an excursion to
Fort Washington, about Hi miles from the
city. The party consisted of scholars and
teachers of a Catholic Sabbath School, togeth
er with many in cited guests. When about
twelve miles from the city the passenger train
ran into the excursion train with horrible res
ult. Then followed a scene which no pen can
describe. The three forward ears in the Exent ,
sion Train were torts to fragments, and from
the force of the collision, were piled up pyram.
idically one upon the other. The fire from
-the locomotive communicated to these ruins,
as well us to the other ears, and in a few sec
ends, the whole presented a sheet of flannel—
The immediate victims were those in the for
ward cars, many of whom were killed almost
instantly. But others suffered front the fire,
the smoke and the confusion, and the shrieks
arid groans of the dying and wounded thrilled

The number killed on the spot is reported at
fifty-five, and seventy terribly wounded. The
tragedy was terrible, and we shudder with hor

since committed suicide by taking poison.
Horror upon Horror.

SHILL A ALAN BE A CATHOLIC A
GAINST 1113 WILL I
Political heats are as apt to hatch out
falsehoods as tropical heats do venomous
insects. We can excuse the editors of the
Huntingdon Globe for their silly attempts
to force their religion down Col. Fremont's
throat,—the poor creatures are hired to it.
The day for forcing Romanism upon the
conscience of nien, by faggot and flame,'
thank God in past. But, whilst we forgive
Catholic editors for their attempts at revi
ving the days of persecution, we earnest
ly hope Christian men will be especially
careful that they do not countenance or
propagate such falsehoods. The charges
of the Globe, (which we now shall prove
false as their purgatory,) brought out td
prove Fremont a Catholic, are as follows :
Ist. Because he was married by a Ca
tholic priest. 2d. Because he was educa
ted by Catholics. 3d. Because his chil
dren have been baptized by Catholics. •
The Globe defies us to "bring a shadow
of evidence" to prove any of these allega
tions incorrect. Humiliating as it is to re
fer to this charge, we shall do so and brand
deep in the foreheads of these ',worship
pers of the beast," mans. We deny that
we "have persecuted men on account of re
ligious belief." We made known Jesuit
Lowis's creed, to place men on their guard.
A man's religion is one of those things
which the Constitution says no other man
has any business to meddle with. A man's
religion is a mutter between himself and
his Maker ; and no other man has any
right to question him in regard to it. But
this is not the view which that Pharisaic
sheet takes of the matter. With not a bit
more religion than is good for themselves,
they are for ever troubling themselves a
bout the religion of others. The Globe,
ie notorious for its attacking professors of
religion, and opened its columns and ea
gerly bought up a person to traduce us,
some weeks ago. It did this, not because
its editors care onb farthing about religion
itself. but because, by adroitly lying about
what other!: profess, they hope to injure
those against whom they "bear false wit
ness." If Beelzebub over holds "love
feasts," it must Do with these scaildei Mee-
gering hypocrites. Col. Fremont's relig-
ion is a matter hetWeen him and his God.
In regard to the charge of Catholocism, it
is simply a naked untruth, which with the
accumulated evidence of its falsity before
him, no man with as much religion in his
heart as Judas possessed when he tvent out
and hanged himself, will ever reiterate.—
Col. Fremont's mother was a Protestant
Episcopalian, and the COI. Wan trained
and educated in that faith ; he was confir
rated by the bishop of that church in
I Charleston—of which church his mother
was a member for thirty years. Freinont
and Jessie his wife, are both communicants
in the same church ; and hie children are
all educated in the faith of their parents.
To prove the forgoing, and nail the first
two charges of the Globe as lies, we sub
the following paragraph, which we
cry from the Jr. Y. Independent, the most
influential and extensively circulated relig
ious paper in America. It is from the pen
of Rev. Henry Ward Beecher. We are
curious to see what reply Simon Magus,
of the Globe, will make to this explicit
At this time ninny newspapers recklessly
charge Col. Fremont with being a Rom. Ca
tholic. Though it has been authoritatively con
tradicted, it still continues to be asserted, and
in very positive and impudent forms.
We have taken pairs to inform ourselves in
this matter, and now state to the Christian pub
lic the simple truth, that good men, at least;
may cease to bear false witness.
' Col. Fremont was blessed with a mother of
devoted piety. She was a member of the Epis
copal Church, St. Philip's, Charleston, S. C.,
and reared her son in her own faith. Indeed,
until he was fourteen, Col. Fremont was edu
cated in the hope and expectation that lie would
become an Episcopal minister. At sixteen, ho
was conflrmcd in the Episcopa, church, and
has ever since, when within reach of the church,
been au attendant and communicant. And
since his tompnrary sojourn in New York, ho
has been an attendant at Dr, Antlion's
until recently, and now he worships at Grace
Church. Mrs. Fremont was reared strictly in
the Presbyterian Church, and united with the
Episcopal Church upon her marriage with Col.
Fremont. Their children have been baptized
in the Episcopal Church. It is sold that a
daughter has been sent to a Catholic institution
for education. So far from it, she has never
teen sent away from home at all, but has been
educated by her os/n mother.
It is well known that Mrs. Fremont is the
daughter of Col. Benton, and that, at the time,
her father was opposed to her marriage. Col.
Fremont personally solicited several Protest.
ant Clergymen to perform the marriage cere
mony, but, on account of Col. Benton's opposi.
tion to it, they were unwilling to do it. A fe
male friend, in this exigency, said that she could
find a cler,gyman who would aid without fear,
and brought in a Catholic clergyman, who mar
ried them. Like a true lover and gallant man,
Fremont said he did not care who slid it, so
that it was done quick and strong. Had we
been in Col. Fremont's place, we would have
been married if it had required us to walk
through a row of priests and bishops as long as
from Washington to Rome, winding up with
the Popo himaelf.
Is it not ludicrous to see a class of citizens
so terribly frightened nt the spread of Catholi
cism, and dreading the evils of Papacy above
all things, seizing a quiet Protestant gentle
man, sail insisting upon it that ho shall be a
Catholic? lit vain he struggles andprotests ;
Catholic ho shall be whether he will or not
"But gentlemen, 1 do not believe in the doc
trines; I was roared by a Protestant mother

We now turn to the third charge. To
this it is sufficient to reply that no child of
his has been educated a year, a month, or
even a day, in any Catholic institution, at
Georgetown or anywhere else, and that
they are all reared in the Protestant faith
of their parents—Mrs. Fremont having
been in early youth, a Presbyterian ; but
on her marriage, to oblige her husband, ha
ving connected herself with his church,
the Episcopalian. But to show conclu
sively, beyond all cavil, in what faith Col.
and Mrs. Fremont have reared their chil
dren, we submit herewith the official cer
tificate of the Rector of the Church of the
Epiphany, of Washington City, showing
that all their children have been baptized
in the Episcopal Church :
WesuiNoToN CITY, July 12, 1856,
"The following children of J. Charles and
Jessie Benton Fremont • have been baptized in
the Church of the Epiphany, Washington, D.
C.—their baptisms being recorded in the regis•
ter of said parish

tion of Public Baptism of Wants,' was that

Rector of the Parish of the Epiphany, Wash.
ington, 1). C."
It will be noticed that these baptisms of
Colonel Fremont's children were not per
formed privately, but publicly in the
church, before all the world who chose to
look on, to listen to the vows of the parents
and sponsors that they should be brought
up in the faith of the church Among the
sponsors of these children were Col. Ben
ton, Kit Carson, Gapt. Lee, U. S. N.,
Francis P. Blair, and Colonel Fremont
himself (a strong point, as a Catholic could
not promise such things); and Mr. Blair,
who has known Col. Fremont for many
years intimately, is astonished at the per
sistent attempts to force him to be a Cath
olic against his will, when he has known
him always to be a Protestant and to re
peatedly declare himself as of that faith by
education, conviction, and profession.
ORGANIZE FOR LIBERTY.
Fellow Citizens, bur duty to our God.
to our Country, to ourselves, and to our
fellow.men, demands that we should make
a mighty effort to break the bonds thnt are
daily tightening around its; that we should
exert the whole energy of our nature to
shield us from the fearful calamity that
threatens our cherished Union.
Liberty, the master key to every Amer
ican heart, lies bleeding in the Capitol of
our country, and the Tyrant exultingly
waves his sceptor o'er her prostrate form.
Is there no bold arm to wrest the victim
from his brutal grasp, and bruise the hand
that dared defile the sacred shrine of Hu
man Freedom ? Surely, must the angel
of Justice weep, and bow her head in bit
ter agony to see the last resort of Freedom
desecrated. Despots end Tyrants in oth
er lands, need no longer gaze with tremb
ling nerves towards the boasted star of Li-.
betty, in this, our Western world. A fear
ful cloud has dimmed its once pure lustre,
and left a tarnish that no time can e'er
efface. The ballot-box, the bulwark, of our
national existence, has been invaded and
violated to subserve the ends of a fierce
and brutal mob, and those who dared to
raise their voice in vindication of a right,
sacred almost as life itself, have been cru
elly assailed, and forced to flee where Jus
tice yet held some control.
We all remember the tumult of indigna
tion that swelled in every patriotic breast
when the French Usurper took possession
of alp ballot-box of the Peuedo Republic;
but that was fair and honorable contrasted
with the recent outrages on the elective
franchise in our own loved home—outrages
connived at too, by the chosen rulers of the
land. It is a fearful thing, when the fun
damental basis of our institutions is assail
ed—a crime that demands a terrible retri
bution, lest it stand in future time as a pre
cedent for actions yet more foul and hei
Fellowcitizens, if we love liberty, we
must arouse now—at once—there is not a
moment to spare. Ere another campaign
can come around, the dread edict will have
gone forth, and the last star, to which the
eyes of oppressed nations were turned,
will be sunk in the dark cloud of human
bondage. Where so lately the free pure
air of liberty came floating from the fairest
spot of God's creation in our western
climes, will sweep the pestilential miasma
of slavery, bearing on its wings a wail of
woe and anguish. Unless you seize on
the present moment and act, you are re.
sponsible to Cod and to future generations
in time to come, for a derelection of duty,
which you will repent to the last hour of
your existence. Then arouse ! Form Clubs
in every hamlet and district, and rally ev
ery man of whom you have the most dis
tant gleam of hope. Already many of our
neighbors aro organizing for liberty, with
an enthusiasm that will strike terror to the
heart of every traitor to her cause.

Fremont American Itepliblican County
We invite the attention of thefreemen of the
County of Huntingdon to the call for alkin
vention of Republicans of this county, far the
formation. of a county ticket. This step has
become imperative. The existing state of af
fairs is such, that wo must do everything in our
power to maintain the right's which are justly
ours. The great and all•absorbing issue now
before the country is slavery. Shall the com
pacts of our fathers be destroyed to extend the
area of human bondage, and bring the free
northern white laborer to the degraded level of
a plantation negro ? This is the question
which must bo decided in the coming contest.
The Republicans say slavery shall not be
brought into free territory, Our opponents
say it shall. The Buchanan and Fillmore par
ties are in a manner united in favor of the ex
tension of slavery; we cannot and will not vote
with any party or for any candidates who will
embrace The extension of slavery as their Creed.
For this reason the Republican Americans
have seen proper to call a County Convention,
separate and distinct front all others.
Among all the issues presented by the oppo
nents of the Democratic party, there is just
one issue that they are careful not to present,
and that is the very issue they ought to present,
the very issue which, of all others, is necessary
to place the two contending parties in direct
opposition to each other, fair and square. The
only direct, unequivocal, and manly issue that
can be made with such a party must be made
by a Republican party. Wo must therefore be
represented by true men, and for this reason
we invite the action of all true Fremont Amer
ican Republicans. We have no room to speak
of this further at present.

Two grand inaugural Fremont meetings of
the campaign, wore held last week one in
Pittsburgh and the other in Allegheny. The
attendance at both was very large, and the ut

Brooks immediately resigned, bat will be re.

On Tuesday the House passed the resolution
censuring Keitt, and rejected that censuring
Edmundson, for their connection with the
Brooks outrage. Mr. Bully Keitt followed his
illustrious predecessor, Bully Brooks, in a va.
ledictory speech, of the same sort as that made
by the latter, and announced he had resigned
his scat, to take effect forthwith.
This will give tho Republicans n stronger
hold on the House by two votes.
Bully Brooks Again.
A despatch from Washington, under date
of the 12th inst., says: "It is understood that
after Mr. Woodruff had concluded his remarks
in the louse, this evening, Mr. Brooks inform.
ed him, through Mr. Savage, that ho took ox.
ceptions to them, and intimated a meeting.—
Mr. Woodruff declined on the ground that it
was contrary to his religious views, and viola
tivo of the laws of the land."
Here we have another exposition of the
hullyism of the Slave Power. It sneakingly
and cowardly strikes' down Free Speech in the
Senate Chamber, and when one of the Peoples
Representatives denounces the outrage in
proper terms, its chosen Bully seeks further to
intimidate by an invitation to mortal combat•
The time has come when the men of the North
must stand together, if they would not he lash

to have been lost. From fifteen to twenty that
were known on board are missing. The names
of the lost have not been ascertained.
For the Journal
MESSRS. EDITORS :—lnasmuch as two As.
sociate Judges are to be elected this fall, per-
mit me through the columns of the "Journal,"
to present the name of Thomas T. Cromwell of
Cromwell township, as a suitable candidate for
said office. Mr. Cromwell is a thorough Awe
rican Republican in sentiment, of rare probity,
and good literary attainments, well scienced in
business and the practical theory of law as
practiced in County Courts—of ready percep
tion and ripened judgment. As a Christian
and gentleman he is iu every requisite sense
calculated to adorn the exalted station of As
sociate Judge with dignity and advantage.
In connection wills the undoubted qualifica
tions of Mr. Cromwell is also to be remembered
the claim of the lower end of the county for a
share of said offices. Inasmuch ar none in this
section have yet shared in the honors of the
Judgeship—we claim a share with those of
other portions of the county, without fear of
disregard to our claim by the nominating Con.
