JOHN G. MILES, ESQ.
When such men as Mr. Miles come out
in favor of the great question of freedom,
we may well say our victory in the county
is certain. Mr. Miles has few equals in
Pennsylvanians a jurist. He has enlisted
heartily in the cause of Fremont and Free•
dots, and is doing good service in the coun
Circulate the Documents.
The friends of Fremont and Freedom should
keep no documents lying idle, on their hands,
but after having rend them themselves, they
should hand them to their neighbors, and whoa
they are done, circulate them still further. Do
the same with the Journal—rend it, and then
pass it around. Every document calculated to
do good should be read by as many as possible
Every man should consider himself a commit
tee to circulate documents.

One of these, entitled: "Words of Counsel to

who could utter such barefaced falsehoods, and
then cover over his wickedness, by resorting to
the base deception of subscribing himself, "A

likely, that he is a genuine seoundrtd—a fit
subject for the Penitentiary.
The Republican Nominations,
We have only time and space to give the
ticket nominated by the Republican County
Convention, without comments. Suffice it to
say it is an excellent one, and can be elected.

no control over fines nod forfeitures other than

We think it proper to recommend to all
concerned, great caution ; and, if possible, a
strict compliance with the very letter and spirit
of thin law. It springs end snaps like a steel

The Catholic Press United for Buchanan
It is a singular fact that every Catholic press
in the Union, front the Boston - Pilot down to
the Huntingdon Globe, supports Buchanan fur
President! Is it to bo wondered at? Louisi

Territory has strengthened Catholicism in the

We take the above from the Hol. Regißter.
Now, mark thefidet. Mr. Shaffer, whose letter
we published last week, asserts that it is a libel
on him, to say he will vote for Fillmore. He
goes for Fremont, heart sad soul, because "he

Nothing. One set claiming that Fremont
is a slaveholder, and another that he is
trying to have all the slaves let loose to
murder their masters. No stone is left
unturned to stop the onward roll of Free•
dom's waves, and as they tower higher and

The Late American Convention.
The Convention of Fillmoritcs or the South
American Slaveocratie Division of the Ameri.
cans of this county nominated a ticket, which
we have publish,d. It is proper here to state,
that in several of the townships, a great major.
ity of the Americans who attended the elec
tions were for Fremont, and elected Fronton
tern to attend the Convention in Huntingdon.
When the convention met, these Fremonters
were all turned out of doors, and those left pro
ceeded to form the ticket.
At Shirleysburg, the Fremont Americans
were four or live times as numerous as the
Fillmorite Americans, and elected their dele
gates by a large majority. To prevent this
exhibition of popular feeling, the Filltrorites
culled on all the Americans present, to take an
oath that they would vote for none but Fillmot ,
ites in I funtingdon. The Fremonters, of course,
refused to take any such oath, as required them
to support the Fugitive Slave bill, and when
these delegates cause •into the Convention at
Huntingdon, they were turned out of doors
with the other Fremonters. The Filltnorites
having thus purged their Convention of every
man who preferred Freedom to Slavery, and
having sutured themselves that those remain.

were ready and willing to run down and catch
fugitive slaves for nothing but the honor of be

Political Papers in Illinois.
The Chicago Tribune gives a list of all the
newspapers published in Illinois, with their
political preferences. From it we learn that
of the dailies, fifteen are for Fremont and sev
en for Buchanan; and of the weeklies sixty
six are for Fremont, and fortyseven for Buch
anan, only one in the whole State being for
Fillmore. If the power of the press be as
great as is generally supposed, there is very
little doubt that Fremont will sweep the S late.

The South American State Council met
again at 9 o'clock this morning. A largo
amount of business relative to the order was
dispatched. Reports of Committees, &c., were
received. Rochester was selected as the place
fur holding the State nominating Convention.
The Council has nearly completed its labors
with entire harmony, and will soon adjourn.
Mr. Luther Caldwell of Rockland County of.
fered a series of resolutions denouncing the
attempts to gag free speech at Washington,
and condemni n g the members of Congress who
sustained Brooks in his attack on Mr. Sumner,
deploring the Kansas outrages, and the failure
of Congress to effectually interpose ; denounc
ing the Kansas Nebraska bill, the repeal ache
Missouri Compromise, etc. Mr.Satntuons, the
President, ruled the resolutions out of order.
Mr. Caldwell appealed from the decision. The
Crencil voted to sustain the Chair, thus rejec
ting the resolution. Thereupon a small num
ber of Free Soil Delegates withdrew front the
Council. Resolutions ratifying the nomination
of Fillmore and Dimelson were then adopted
unanimously, and after appointing a State

The Council adjourned.
The South Americans and Locofocos in this
county and State, hate freedom in Kansas and.
freedom of speech in Congress as sincerely as
do their brethren in New York. The vote of
the South American ut Syracuse, as set forth
above, is an honest and true exhibit of the feel•
togs of the great body of the Filmorites in this
State. Voters of Huntingdon County, you
must soon determine whether you will vote for
these worshipers of the slave power, or for the
friends and supporters of Fremont and liberty.
With whom will you go, and whose companions
will you be ? How can you hesitate.
