To Tam PCl3LlC.—Being naturally averse to 1
strife and inclined to retirement and repose I
entered upon the trying duties of an Editor, de. '
tarmlned to avoid, so far as possible, all mere
personal controversy and contention with my
trethren of the press. The readers of the '
Journal will bear me witness that I have this. '
tar maintained this determination, giving no
offence to any honorable cotemporary, and co.
ming in collision only with the Jesuitical pub.
Esher of the Huntingdon Globe, and one or
two other.), equally unprincipled and depraved,
the eiders and abettors of hie fiendish attacks
on me. Those who know Lewis and his lac.
'keys, who know their utter want of integrity,
truth--everything dint can renrain the passions
or commend respect—will not wonder that they
have slimed my path and compelled me, in self.
defence, sometimes to defile my columns with
their Lifitmous names and conduct, I have no
apology to offer on this score. None is needed,
and that, is not the object of this paper. lily
object is to show in a dispassionate statement,
how my difficulties with Lewis originated, and
to expose once more the villainy Of their author.
I shall not Oct down aught in malice; but state
fairly what I positively know to be true and
most of which I can prove. I shall write as in
the presence of the Great Judge at whose bar
all things shall be revealed ; where expert rag.
ettlity shall not be able to hide its infamy ;
where even petty officials shall be called to am
count for duties neglected, unjust feesextorted
and oaths of office violated. Having in this
spirit laid the troth before the public, I Khali
have discharged my duty, and will henceforth
leave the miscreant Lewis, to wallow in hie
shame, until fresh villainy on his part shall de•
wand of roe a similar exposure.
In entering on this unpleasant duty, I re•
mark in the first place, what many in this corn•
enmity will probably remember, that my diffi.
.culties with Lewis did not arise out of his con.
duct as publisher of the Globe, but his conduct
as postmaster at Huntingdon. In the former
unpacity, knowing the character of the man, I
expected of him no fair or honorable treatment,
.and therefore held myself prepared to answer
his abuse with silent contempt. But as post.
master, the sworn agent of government, I put
ant of view his want of personal integrity, and
Looked for perniniary justice, at least, in the dis
charge of his official duties. Here I was die.
appointed, and felt it my duty to expose his
ehortcominge to the public and also to the dte
part tnent at Washington. For this I have been
assailed with a tissue of unfounded, base, ma•
lignaut slanders, clothed in the foul and fiend
lob language whiCh Popery invented, and which
Jesuits only know how to use. To show that
I could not, as a public journalist, permit the
official misconduct of Lewis to pass unnoticed
without indirectly sharing his guilt while I eel
feted from it, I submit the fallowing facts to a
eandid public.
Shortly after I took charge of the Journal, a
slumber of my subscribers complained that they
did not get their papers until a week or more
after the regular time. On investieating the
matter I found that while the Journal was-thus
delayed, the Globe came to the same offices re•
gularly and in doe time every week. Now I
oan prove, and offered to do Ito at the time, that
during this very period, the Journal was inva.
fifthly sent to Lewis' office the evening before
his paper was streets off. I leave honest rea•
ders to judge how the Globe, printed a day /a•
ter than the Journal and mailed at the same
office, could be carried in the mails to various
parts of the county, a week in advance of the
For this detention of my paper I submitted
for a long time till the evil became intolera
ble, and failing to have it corrected here, I ap.
plied to Ike Postmaster General for redress.—
Vain application I I might as well have ap
pealed to Satan to reprove sin, as. to James
Campbell to reprove the mideondurt of his pa.
pal subordinate. True, I was informed, after
a time, that an agent was sent to investigate
the matter. But if such agent came, he did
not call on me, and whatever conference he
may have had with Lewis resulted in no good ;
Tor the wrong wen still perpetrated, and as the
presidential election approached, became even
more seriously annoying. For now his overt
acts were not confined to his own office, but ex
tended to others in the county, as the following
"order" in his own handwriting, and already fa•
miliar to our readers, will show
Post Office, Huntingdon, Pa., Nov. 3,185 G.
Post Master at Coffee Han—You will give Mr.
all printed mail matter lying at your of
See for the offices beyond it.
Here official rascality, blended by success and
emls,l.lpned by impunity in wickedness, over
reached itself; and there, reader, stands the
damning evidence of the crime,—the crime of
not merely "detaining or delaying" newspapers
in his own office, but of taking them out of oth•
er offices and suppressing them The penal.
ties for this crime will be found in the sections
of the poet office laws on the 4th page of this
paper. The fact that these penalties were no
restraint on Lewis, shows pretty clearly the en.
derstanding he had with the head of the De•
partment, and goes far to prove the collusion of
that corrupt official. Read the law.
Rut to say nothing of these penalties, which
in this case had no terrors for the evil•doer,
where, let me ask, was the conscience of the
illikwho could thus trample on laws which
mpg solemnly sworn faithfully and truly to
observe and administer ? I will not attempt
to answet this question, but leave it to the mo•
set sense of every honest man. I shall make
no comments upon this crime, except to ex
plain the motives that actuated the criminal.
To understand these, it must be borne in mind
that the deed was perpetrated on the day be•
fore the presidential election, and that the pa.
per. suppressed were the Journals which con
tained an expose of the infamous treachery of
Sanderson and other Arnolda in the American
party : and also a statement of the terms on
which the Republicans and the honest portion
of the Americans had agreed to unite; togeth•
er with the Union Electbral Ticket and other
matter highly important at that particular cri
sis. To disseminate this information, on which
hundreds of votes in this county depended, the
Journal was printed and sent out on Monday
before the election. Thin Lewis knew, and to
prevent these facts reaching the people, he ig
nored his oath of office, braved the threatenings
of the law and the execration of the public,
and sent his order of suppression.
Iniquity triumphed. The order was execut•
ed by agents who no doubt thought they were
obeying the lawful demand of a public officer s
and thus numbers of patriotic citizens were de
handed of their votes, one of the dearest rights
of freemen. I will only remark, that so cor
rupt is the head of the post office department,
and so strong the political and religious (1)
sympathy sof postmaster general James Camp
bell for postmaster deputy Wm. Lewis, that
this great wrong must go uawhipt of justice,
whilst the guilty perpetrator still occupies the
place he has disgraced and may at any time
repeat the transgression. There remains only
this consolation, viz: that this reign of corrup
tion will soon end by the expiration of the com
missions whirls have been uaedto screen it from
penal justice.
Want of apace compels me to close here for
the present. Next week I shall pursue the sub
ject is some of its other startling aspects.

pects of the Pennsylvania Agricultural College,
and urging the propriety of memorializing the

favorably noticed, which were requested by the

fished in the papers of the county.
It was on 'notion, Resolved, That petitions,

Will he Do it 1
We some weeks ago offered to wager $lOOO
with the Jesuit of the Huntingdon Globe, that
his oft-repeated assertion that ono of the editors
of the Huntingdon Journal was guilty of "per
jury and illegal voting," was a Jesuit lie; this
be has refused to accept, whilst, at the same
time, he persists in his assertion. What is left
us inn case of this kind ? Leave the animal
in its mire? Well, we shall after one more or .
fer. If it is a want of money that influences
hie non-acceptance, we will make this proposi.
Lion, and if he refuses to accede, let him for
ever be written a Jesuit, malignant serpent.
We will place $5OO in the hands of any honest
man in the borough, and let him put up $2OO.
If he succeeds in proving his assertion to the
satisfaction of a Court and Jury, he keeps the
money, if not we take the same. Now, too the
mark or take the water.
And further, we will bet the same amount,
and in the same manner, that all we have said
r elative to the "mail" business, is the solid
truth, and that the Jesuit wrote the order for
the matter in the poet office at James Creek,
as published outside.
Slir We notice in several of our exchanges
an item, copied from the Huntingdon Globe, to •
the effect that the Presbyterian congregation
of this place had reduced the salary of the . pas•
for from $lOOO to $BOO. We have been re.
quested to state that this is a bold and malig.
nant misrepresentation. It appears that at a
congregational meeting, called for the purpose
of arranging some matters, a motion had been
made to fix permanently the salary of the pas.
tor, in view of the completion of the parsonage.
The salary of the minister had been raised in
July last, from $BOO to $lOOO, and the arrange•
meat now concluded is precisely the same, the
parsonage being made free. These statements
are made, not because the public have any
right to pry into and know the business of a
congregation, but merely to correct a base
misrepresentation gotten up by a hired Jesuit
laequey, with the purpose ot injuring the repu•
taticn of one of the most able and eloquent iii•
vinmiu the county, or of casting ridicule upon
a religions Protestant congregation. We hope
our brethren of the press, who have been decei•
ved into a publication of this matter, by the
sneaking, foxy cunning of a Jesuit, who can
parade such falsehoods before the public, with
the view of injury, will make the anteade hono.
What will not o Roman Jesuit do to injure
JIB We now frequently meet with teen and
boys staggering through the streets in a beau•
tial state of intoxication; but we d 3 not hear
of their being arrested, though we believe the
present law inflicts a heavy fine and requires
the constable to execute it. It is astonishing
that•the commonity can be hood winked by
license laws; we do not believe that a single
drunkard was ever saved by them. Men and
boys can get liquor and get drunk when they
choose notwithstanding the certified character
of the tavernekeepers. We see by the Phila
delphia papers that a man named Clark was
stabbed so that he soon died, by a gang of
drunken men on Christmas night. Several
other stabbing cases occurred and these things
are of daily occurrence. ?Just this state of
things be handed down ns a legacy to the next
generation ?
