Wednesday Morning, Sept. 3, 1853.
Forever float that sbtadaril sheet,
Where breathes the foe but faiisbeforo us,
With Freedom's soil beneath our foot,
And Freedom's banner streaming o'or usl"
OF NF.I7 Jtlt.Y.
There should be a Fremont Club in every
town and township in Huntingdon county, for
without organization no effective work can be
accomplished. Let the friends of Freedom and
the People's candidates see to it. To secure a
victory in the State it only requires that the
issues shall be properly understood by the peo
ple. But to secure that result will require some
labor and attention. The friends of Fremont
have every advantage in the contest—have ev
ery thing in their own hands if they will use it.
The facts and arguments um so overwhelming
ly on their side that the Buchancers ent.not
stand before them a single moment in open
discussios. The work of organizing and dis
tributingdiscnments will fall mainly on the
young tnir of the county, and they should take
the matter in hand at once.
The New York Tribune thus sets out the
s pecial advantage of .a Club organization and
defines the labors which will devolve upon it.—
Give us a Club in every . district that will work
on the plan here propsed, and we will promise
an overwhelming victory 1
1. To get a list of every voter in each vil.
lags or town of every comity, and note his
known or supposed predilections for President,
and keep this in a book, noting the changes, if
from time, and reporting to the County
2. To see that every toter has all the Re
publican documents the Club can afford to par.
•chase, and especially : "The Republican Plat
form;" "Campaign Life of Fremont ;" "Sum.
.ner's Speech;" "Report of the Kansas Investi
gating Committee." Let these be thrown into
every voter's door by a person employed for
the purpose.
3. Let all difficulties be fairly looked iu the
face, and let not enthusiasm ward cool calcula. I
tins. If needed, iu the way of documents or
speakers, let timely notice be given to the
County Central Club, or to the County Commit.
tee, or to the State Committee.
4. See that the suceess of the Electoral tick.
et and of Congressmen be preferred over and
above all local considerations or local quarrels
pit local issues.
'5. Divide the Chubs into Snb•Committees
—for example: Document Committee, Public
Meeting Committee, Vigilance Committee,
%Challenging Committee, Naturalization Com
mittee, Ticket Committee, Le.; so that there
may be perfect division of labor.
6. Let each Club work in its own locality
se if the success of the party depended upon the
majority in that locality. Let the majority
everywhere be swelled, and enlist the Ladies in
•the cause.
7. Make public every change of tactics ob
served to be made by either the Buchanan or
Fillmore opponents of Freedom.
8. Take care of the local newspaper favora
ble to Republicanism, and add to its campaign
9. Relax no endeavors until the polls are
closed, and count on no result as certain.
The Roman Catiolio.—Query No. 1.
Will the proprietor of the Huntingdon Globe
please answer the following queries. They are
simple, and easily answered.
Whether or no the principal man in the Hun
tingdon Globe office is not a Roman Catholic?
Whether or no the principal writer or editor
is not a Roman Catholic ?
Whether or no one of the candidates on the
Locofoco county ticket, is not a Roman Catho
lie ?
Whether or no the whole Cresswell family
will be run on the county ticket ?
Whether or no the Democratic party of Hun
tingdon County endorses the Pierce policy, the
overthrow of free speech in Congress, the tour.

laboring, men's wages to 10 cents per day, the
etealing of Cuba, the extension of slave terri

On the confidant assurance that Mr. Cremor
is in favor of the election of Fremont & Dayton,
he received the nomination of our Convention

How is it ? Let Mr. Cromer explain. lie•
publicans are not to be lira rejected and in

If Mr. Cremer wants our votes let him come'
out over his own signature and place himself
right on the main questions.
Huntingdon PoMin
We now have in the political field of Hun
tingdon county, threeseparato and distinct par
ties, though two of them are only nominally
separate and distinct ; being in truth engaged
in the came common cause, and laboring dili
gently to attain the sane object, to secure the
overthrow of free speech, free thought and free
men in the free States of this Union, and intro
duce Slavery into all the Territories of tho
Union, not yet organized as States and admit
ted into the Union no noel,.
The first aud oldest of these parties, is the
old slaveocratie, locofbeo organization, falsely
called the Democratic party. The second of
these parties, less powerful, but no less hostile
to freedom, is the barbarous and corrupt South
American division of the Americanorder. This
lust party sold itself, at en early period to the
slaveholders of the South, soul and body, and is
now laboring and striving by every falsehood
and base practice, to outdo even the Democra
cy in its servile erduching and low bending of
its supple knees to the slave power.
The chiefs of this party, who set up to be the
loaders here iu Huntingdon, declare with one
accord, that they will vote tbr Buchanan and
slavery in preference to Fremont and freedom.
The voters of Huntingdon county may rely
upon this, fur the fact can be proved by the
open declarations of all the leaders.of the Fill
morites. These too parties are in substance
and action one party, their principles are the
same ; they worship slavery nod fall down to.
gether in humble adoration before an overseer,
with his long whip with its two feet lash and
pound of lead in the butt. At the sight of a
first•clnss Slavemwncr, they shout, "Hallelujah
great is the powcry and glory of SLAVEAY
cosy it overspread every foot of ground now free
in the United States, and cover the whole land
by the blessed shadow of its wrongs I"
Give freedom to the dogs I What care WO
for such fustians, if we can secure to ourselves
good offices upon which we can live and grow
rich whilst the people labor for us? Let us
have our Slaves in the Free States; white peo•
ple make very good slaves, if we can once sub•
due them.
The third party now in the field in this coun
ty is the great North American Republican
Party, which supports free speech, free thought,
free soil and Fremont—free men and none but
free men, in every place where Slavery is not
already established by the Laws of the States,
and the utter prohibition of Slavery in all the
Territories cohere Freedom now exists.
Kaunas Affairs.
It is as we believed in Kansan. The Free
State men have not attacked Lecompton, and
of course have not taken it. They have not
liberated Governor Robinson and the other
Free State prisoners confined there to await
their trial for treason under the auspices of
Judge Lecompte. They have 710 captured
Secretary Woodson, nor chased away Governor
Shannon,nor meddled with the dragoons in and
way. All the reports here contradicted are
Border Ruffian lies, founded on the actual
demonstrations of certain Free State men against
the hands of Pro-Slavery robbers and murder
ers who had erected blockhouses at Franklin,
Osawattamie, Ac., from whence they sallied out
to plunder peaceful settlers and travail us on
every aide. Those fortified at Franklin hav
ing murdered, as we have already stated, a
Free Orate man who entered their den to re
monstrate against recent robberies, the neigh.
boring settlers rallied and captured their block.
house, recovering a quantity of arms stolen at
the sack of Lawrence, but letting the captu
red marauders escape. Another party of these
free boaters, under Capt. Titus, whose block
bonne was situated near Lecompton, would
seem to have captured with greater loss turd
held as hostages for the return of Free State
property stolen at the sack of Lawrence or in
, various forays see ; and another marauder's
1 fort near Ossawatomie is said to have been
attacked ummecessully and with considerable
loss especially to the Free State party. Of
this latter affray, we have no other than Bor.
der Bullion accounts, and it may prove as base.
less as the reported capture of Lecompton; but
in the abseence of any • contradiction we will
let it stand fur the present.
The Folly of It.
Just at the present t.ixle Colonel FREMONT
seems to be attacked with more violence than '
either of his competitors. He is represented
as a defaulter, a swindler, a foreigner, a Jesuit
a Catholic, and almost everything else that is
bad. We hate been not a little amused at the
persistent, determined efforts to make him out
a catholic. It is of no avail that it is proved
he was brought up, baptized, confirmed, and
is a regular attendant of the Episcopal Church.
It is no avail that Lieutenant Governor RAY.
Move, of New York, and the Rev. HENRY
WAnn BEECH= have published letters, after
a personal interview with Colonel FREMONT,
denying, in the most explicit and positive terms
that he is a Catholic or has any learning in that
direction. The charge is reiterated with as
much assurance and impudence as if it had
not been denied. Colonel FREMONT certainly
has a right to be a Catholic if he chooses to
be. But it seems he does not. He says lie is a
Protestant from education, from conviction
and choice. We suggest to all our editorial
brethren to permit him to .ratify his predilec
tions and be a.grotestant. Owould be likrd
enough fiLuan be a Catholic at any rate,
it would Weculiarly hard to be forced iii
this position against our remonstrance and
It has been asked why does not Cal. FRE.
MONT silence all cavils by a written denial
that he is a Catholic? For the very good rea
son that this, in effect, has been done through
his friends, and especially because no luau who
affects to believe that he is a Catholic, would
believe it a whit the less if he should deny the
charge over hie own signature. Those who
charge him with being a Catholic don't wish to
be convinced. The charge is made for politi•
cal effect, and it will be persisted in so long as
any political capital can be gainned by it.
ifirGen. John Pruviance of Butler Pa.,
oz• Auditor General, of Pa., an old Democrat,
is out for Fremont.
Among the Pennsylvania nowspnpers which
have kept the Fillmore national ticket at the
head of their columns since it was first nomina
ted, were several whose millers believed that
Mr. Fillmore wonld take a position against the
extension of slavery, nod that the bulk of th e
opposition would evidently support him. As
the canvass progresses, it becomes every day
more .d more evident that Mr. Fillmore really
occupies the same platform as Mr. Buchanan,
on the subject of slavery, and that those who
calculated upon the public being willing to rat.
ly round him as the chief candidate of the op. i
position were entirely mistaken. With this
development staring them in the face, the Fill.
more °rimns in the interior aregraileally ch..
ging over to Fremont. We have previously
named several such, and our last mails bring
an accession to the number. The Juniata Sete
tinel, an able and influential journal, which has
hitherto supported Fillmore and Donelson, now
takes down their names, and replaces them
with Fremont and Dayton, the editor spying
that ho bad waited patiently, bet in vain, for
some endorsement from Mr. Fillmore of the
present movement in resistance to slavery ex.
tension, and has been driven to the conclusion,
that Mr. Fillmore is disposed to aid the Slave
States is the aggressive policy they are purse
jug. The Sentinel can, therefore, no longer
give biro its support, but goes for Fremont.—
There are now few Fillmore papers of t:ny eon
sequenca published in the State, and these few,
will, before the end of tiro campaign, become
still fewer, as the sentiment of the interior on
the great and exciting topic becomes every day
more cverwhelming.

Cambria county, since the adoption of a seen.

The Catholic Press on Fremont•
The following, we believe, is a correct list of
the Bathe - die papers in the English language,
published in the 'United States :
Pilot, Boston, Herald Philadelphia.
Sentinel, Buffalo, Instructor,
Mirror, Dal:it:lore, Miscellany, Charleston.
Standard, N. Orleans, Vindicator, Detroit.
Telegraph, Cincinnati, Leader, St. Louis.
Citizen. New York, Catholic, Pittsburgh.
Freeman's Jr., N. Y. Truth Teller, Boston.
Trish News, N. Y., Irish Aineratn, N. Y.
Celt, do. Globe, Huntingdon.
With the exception of the American Celt,
edited by T. M'Arey McGee, every one of these
papers is actively and openly engaged in the
support of Buchanan and Breckenridge, and of
course, intensely hostile to Fremont and Bay
ton, toward whom they display more malignan. ,
cy than to the great Anti-Popery champion, 1
Mr:Fillmore. The Celt is kicking out the Ira
-1 ces only in consequence of the murder of Kea.
I ting by Herbert, and the refusal of the Cincin-
nr.ti Convention to take the advice which its
\editor volunteered, touching the action cf that
bodyr in relation to the crime. It will come
around and be in lino with its peers before the
day of election.
The facts above stated afford a commentary
of great significance upon the cry that Col
Fremont is a Catholic. Tho facts also illus.
trate the honesty of the pro•slovery men when
• they howl about thc impropriety of the interfe
rence of religious papers with political affairs.
Some interference is right enough to Catholic
journals; but when a Protestant editor ventures
, to speak, he commits an unpardonable crime,
Democratic Fremont Movements.
In McKean county, Pa., a voluntary move
ment has been made by members of the Dem.
oeratic party resulting in a thorough Fremont
organization at the court house and in every
township of the county. The Democrats of
Cleaveland, Ohio, have else made a similar
movement. They have got up and published
a call for the organization of a Democratic
Fremont club, giving in detail the reasons why
they cannot support the Buchanan ticket. Time
Cleaveland Herald says that the signatures
were confined to those who, up to the present
campaign, have been identified with the Dem
=tole party, and every man who signed cast
his vote for William Medill, the Democratic
candidate for Governor of Ohio. Had the call
been for those who voted for Pmsident Pierce
the list might have embraced five hundred.
The meeting to organize a club into take place
on the 16th inst. at the court house, and sill
be addressed by the Hon. W. Conine, lately a
Democratic member of Congress. In Warren
county, Pa., all the disaffected Democrats
have also gone over to Fremont, headed by
the Hon. C. B. Carts, a Democratic member
of the lust Congress.
The Fillmore Electoral Ticket•
Pennsylvania, contains the names ofnt least
two men who are supporters of Fremont.—
There are G. W. Youngman, of the Fifteenth,
and Caleb N. Taylor, of the Seventh District.
Youngman, according to a Lycoming correa.
pendent of the Pennsylvanian, has been ac
tively engaged in distributing Fremont papers
and is well known, in that region, to be for the
Republican candidate. The Doylestown In.
tellig,encer also says, that Taylor was a member
of the Philadelphia Republic. National Con
vention which nominated Fremont, of whom lie
is an ardent supporter. There are also other
names on the ticket whickseem to us, from the
I antecedents of the persons named, extremely
unreliable for Fillmore ; but we await further
developments. It is worth while, however, to
bear in mind that the Convention which nomi
nated this ticket refused to pass a resolution
requiring the electors to pledge themselves to
Fillmore and Donelson.
Illinois Safe for Fremont.
Mr. Richardson, Democratic candidate for
Governor of Illinois, gives up the battle, and
acknowledges that Illinois will giro a large
majority (Republican) for Governor, and Fre
mont for President.
One of our subscribers suggests that as the
Democratic candidate for President says ho is
no longer Buchanan, that he beneoforth ho

The Abolitionists.
The Anti-Slavery Standard, the organ of the
Garrison Abolitionists, takes strong ground a
gainst the Republican party. It gives, in its
leading article fee this week, an extract of a
letter from a "clear-sighted Abolitionist in
Massachusetto," who says that the success of
the Republicans "will its its benumbing nod
satisfying influence retard the movements of
the slave's redemption." So Parker Pillsbury,
a prominent Garrisonian, in a speech at Fra
mingham on the 4th of July, declared his pre
ference of Buchanan, because it would tend
to promote and influence the Anti-Slavery agi
tation, while that of Fremont would tend to a
cessation of it.

It is high time for us to determine in these
United States, whether Freedom is a cruel
mockery, or whether it is a reality. That Old
Boston Tory, MIAs Choate, louke upon the
Declaration of Independence as a high sound

will teach him an old lesson that may open his
eyes. The reason of his going fur Buchanan
