MESSRS. EDITORS :—Though I am neither a
member of the Republican, nor North Amer'.
can party, nor yet a subscriber to yonr paper, I
'ask you, for the benefit of the public to print
this letter. lam one of those voters who sup
ported Millard Fillmore and voted for the
.straight Ticket, as it is termed. I was induced
to vote in thin way by the persuasions and mi..
'representations of some persons in Huntingdon,
who assured me that this plan of voting wan
the only means of causing Mr. Fillmore to be
returned to the House, as one of the three high
est candidates. it now appears that the votes
of the 26,000 straight Fillmore men, is Penn
sylvania, elected Buchanan, and prevented
Fillmore from being returned to the House.
Let us see how thin is. Buchanan had a ma
jority of 895 over all opposition, both of Fill.
more and Fremont. Now, that the election is
over, no one can, or does doubt, that it th e
-supporters of Fremont and Fillmore had acted
together in good faith and cordiality, that they
.could and would easily have overcome this ma.
jority 0(895 votes. Had there been ueither quer.
eels nor dissensions amongst us Americans and
Republicans, we should certainly have beaten
the Democrats with Buchanan, several thou.
sands. But suppose, we had beaten thin only
100, what would have been the result 7 One
hundred of a majority would have defeated
Buchanan, but would not have elected Fremont
-Without Pennsylvania. Buchanan, giving him
California, had 147 votes, and wanted two votes
of an election. With Pennsylvania, Fremont
had 135 votes, and could not have been elected,
But had the Union ticket succeeded in Penn
sylvania, Fillmore, according to the vote he re
ceived, would have been entitled to teti of the
electors, which, added to the votes received by
him in Maryland, would have given Fillmore
18 votes—not enough . to have elected him, but
enough to have taken him into the House; nei.
ther Buchanan nor Fremont would have been
elected. In the House the three candidates
must have taker, their chances, and who can
doubt that amongst the three, Fillmore's chance
was the best. It thus appears, beyond doubt,
that we straight Fill-nore voters have beeu
duced to desert our own candidate, by the fraud
and treachery of our leaders and advisers, from
Henderson and the Daily News down to Barr,
Nash and the Ilaniingdon American. We have
been swimilcd into the election of Buchanan,
when we could just as easily have elected F 11.1:
nom The whole vote in Pennsylvania was
460,295. Buchenan's vole was 230,699; Fre
mont's 147,409; Fillmore's Union, 53,838;
Fillmore'. Straight, 26.338; Fremont Straight
in Philadelphia, 101; Gerrit Smith, 18.
ONE ON THE STRAIGHTS.
For the Journal.
One great object here le happiness, this is I
sought, to a great extent in the accumulation of
wealth, now although I am not of the opinion,
that happiness is always found in accumulated
wealth, still I can see no good or eufficient ref,
.son, because men sometimes abuse their rich
es, why We should pursue a course that will
certainly hanard our business, and may be
the means of involving it in utter ruin; no, the
opposite is true, we should take every honors•
ble precaution to secure against loss or the di
em of bankruptcy, and he who foils to do
thin, stands in about the same situation that
he does, who refuse to insure his house against
loss by fire, because he thinks it may not be
burned. The mariner would nut think of
launching on the broad ocean without com
pass and chart, by which to direct the course
of his vessel and thus insure her safety. The
business man's books if systematically kept,
are his chart, by which, he is enabled to dis•
cover projecting rocks and shoals, and, just as
the magnetic needle points to the polar star, so
sure wil' hooks, if properly kept point to clan
gem and loss, .d the prudent man, thus see•
ing will "cut off his losses and let his profits
run on." Whatever may be said to the con
trary. it is just as great folly to think that
business can be conducted safely, without sys.
tem in its books of record, as it would be for
the master of a vessel to attempt to cross the
ocean without his chart, compass ie. He
may succeed in crossing safely for a long
time and indeed may never meet with any loss
for being without these instruments upon which
safety so greatly depends, yet where, I ask, are
those who would be willing to risk either Life
or Property with one no poorly provided with
the essentials to safety; they are not to he found.
Those then, who do not prepare themselves to
transact business promptly and correctly can
not long, in any locality or business, have the
patronage of those who desire to conduct their
business honestly and surely ; it is, therefore, a
matt, of the utmost importance that young
men avail themselves of the opportunities,
new offered in schools for this purpose, for ac
quiring a thorough and practical knowledge
of Book keeping. But more than this. The
young man who, with a good degree of energy
has taken the pubis to acquire a thorough
knowledge of the several branches of book.

means of usefulness, respectability and wealth.

respects for business yet wanting in this, one

much higher compenaations then others who
have been employed weekly for their knowl

READI READ!! READII
The most startling developments arc being
brought to light iu different sections of oar
country, showing the manner lit which the so•
called Democracy have elected their President
and the means resorted to. The mails have
been stopped, votes illegally pulled, kc.,
In thin county, the lowest and most startling
tricks have been perpetrated, and the system
of mail depredation carried to an alarming ex
tent. The postmaster in Huntingdon Borough
—William Lewis—hrts been playing a high
handed game in one matter, and we hope, for
the sake of justice, that sympathy will not so
far work upon the feelings of the geutletnen
who have his case in hand, as to induce them
to l e t him go unranked and unpunished. We
give below a copy of one of his letters, now is
possession of one of our most excellent citi
zens. We copy it verbatim. Read it :

". 'WM. LEWIS, P. M.
Paradise Furnace, Maddensv ilk, Three Springs.
The story invented, that it was to hasten on
the American newspaper's circulars, urging all
Americans to vote the straight out Fillmore
tickets is simply untrue ; klr. Gillum iaffirms
us that according to these instructions to deli
ver "all printed mail matter," he gave up all
in the office, and all "printed mail matter" was
taken, with the exception of a bundle qf the
American newspaper's circulars! Now, if the
circulars were the articles William Lewis the
Postmasters, wished to have sent on with speed
why, should they be the only articles left ?
The note as published in last week's Hun•
tingdon Globe, is not correct, ,as will be seen
by comparing it with the original. The above
is a correct copy as taken from the order now
in good hands.
The laws of the United States speak is em
phatic terms. Hear :
"If any person employed in any department
of the post office shall improperly keep, detain
or delay any newspaper, or permit any other
person to do it, or permit any other to open
any snail, or packet of newspapers, NOT DI.
ItECTED TO THE OFFICE WHERE IIE

shall take any mail of newspapers from or out
of any post office, or from any person having
custody thereof, he shall be imprisoned at hard
labor fora term of three months."
'•lf any person shall take with or without the
consent of the person haying custody thereof
any packet front any post office, " such of•
fender shall be imprisoned the nut less than 2
nor exceeding 10 years."
" Every person who shall advise or assist in
perpetrating any acts by this Act forbidden.
shall be subject to the same penalties as if ho
were the actual transgressor.

Now this proven the old adage, ono lie pro

Now this certificate proves conclusively that
Mr. Lewis has criminally kept buck the Journ
als in his office, for one day—after the election
or, that he is telling a deliberate untruth ; we
cannot say which, but it must be one or the
other. Hero is the law, relative to this case,
which we give without charge. •

"If any postmaster shall unlawfully detain

Comfort for Union Savers.
We commend to such nervous Frederic
siah Randall, William It Reed, Frederic Fra•
ley bane Meister, Joe. W. Farrelly, and oth.
er Pennsylvania Clay men, the recent Israeles
of the Richmond Enquirer on the result of the
Presidential election, and the recent letter of
R. Barnwell RUG, to Gov. Adams of South
Carolina. The Enquirer takes the election of
Buchanan and the veto given for him it Phil.
*dolphin, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and In•
diana as an indication of 'lnc growing popu
larity of negro Slavery!" It occurs to us that
the whole vote of the free States looks a little
the other way. However, the Enquirer ought
to know beet what its own friends mean, when
they cant their votes.
The respectable old fogies enumerated above
with many others of like kidney, took great
pains to let us know that the only question of
any account involved iu the late canvass, was
the safety of the Union. But lo and behold I
Here comes out a distinguished friend of Mr.
Buchanan, and tells us that the Union is not
safe yet. Ile won't even say thankee to the
late Northern Union savers; for he accounts
for their devotion to the union by the curt say
ing, "interested mastered fanaticism!" And
inexorable Mr. Rhott won't let the Union stay
safe, until we have lower tariffs and an altered
Constitution. Whatl Wi I the Union never
