The most startling developments are being . "
brought to light in different sections of our
country, showing the manner in which the so
called Democracy have eected their President
and the means resorted to. The mails have
been stopped, votes illegally polled, &c., &c.
In this county, the lowest and most startling
tricks have been perpetrated, and the system
of mail depredation carried to an alattning en
tent. The postmaster in Huntingdon Borough
—William Lewis—has been playing a high.
handed game in one matter, and wo hope, for
the sake of justice, that sympathy will not so
far work upon the feelings of the gentlemen
who have his case in hand, as to induce them
to let hint go unrebuked and unpunished. We
give below a copy of one of his letters, now in
possession of one of our, most excellent citi
zeus. We copy it verbatim. ,Read it

Post Office, Huntingdon, Pc.
Nov. 3d, 1856,
P. M, Coffee Run.
You will give Mr. - ALL
office for the (Jim beyond it.
Paradise Furnace, Dlittblenseille Three Springs.
Tho story invented, that it was to hasten on
the American newspaper's circulars, urging all
Americans to vote the semi yhtout Fillmore
tickets is simply untrue ; Mr. Cillam informs
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 of 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 eriginal. The above
is a correct copy as taken from the order note
in good hands.
The laws of the United States speak in cm
phatic terms. Hear t
"If any person employed in any department
of the pout office shall improperly keep, detain
or delay any newspaper, or permit any other
person to do it, or permit any other to open
any mail, o• parka qf newspapers, NOT DI
13 EMPLOYED, for every such offence he
shall forfeit fifty dollars. And if any person
shall take any mail of newspapers from or out
of any post office, or from any person having
custody thereof, he shall he imprisoned at hard
labor for a term of three mouths."
11 75
"ir any person shall take with or without the
consent or the person having custody thereof
any packet from any post office,* * such of•
fernier shall be imprisoned for not less than 2
nor exceeding 10 years."
" Every person who shall advise or assist in
perpetrating any nets by this Act forbidden.
shall he subject to the same penalties an if he
were the actual transgressor.
"The Huntingdon Journal was issued as ta.
sual on Wednesday."—Hunt. American u/ the
12th inst.
"The Journal and Globe editions were mail•
ed in the Huntingdon office, on Wednesday af•
ternoon."—Hunt. Globe 12th inst.

Now this proves the old adage, one lie pro.
duces another. To prove these gentlemen mis
taken, we have only to produce the following :
hereby certify that a part of the edition
of the Huntingdon Journ al was worked otf on.
Monday, November 3d. and mailed the same
day. The remaining part of the edition was ,
printed on Tuesday morning, and put in the
Ace of Huntin don, in time for both mails.
Huntingdon • Nov.'lB, 1856. W. MILLER.
Now this certificate proves conclusively that
Mr. Lewis has criminally kept back the Journ•
els 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. Here is the law, relative to this case,
which we give without charge.
"If any person employed in any of the de.
partments of the Post Office Establishment
shell unlawfully detain, delay, or open, any let•
ter, packet, &T., with which he shall be entrus•
ted, or shall come to his possession, and which
are intended to be conveyed by post, ' 1
every such offender, being convicted, shall be
fined not exceeding three hundred dollars, or
imprisoned, not exceeding six months, or both
according to the offettee."
. -
"It any postmaster shall unlawfully detain
in his office any newspaper, &c., with intent to
prevent, the arrival and delivery of the same to
the person or persons to whom such newspaper
&c., may be directed, or if any postmaster
give preference toany newspaper over another
forwarding the one and retaining the other, on
conviction thereof he shall be fined not over five
hundred dollars, and imprisoned for a term not
exceeding six months, and shall forever. there•
after be incapable of holding said office in the
United States."

than by the prudent. Besides being deprived
of the pleasure of healthy offspring, the most se

Dr. Johnston,
Membet of the Royal College of Surgeons,
London, graduate from ono of the most eminent
Colleges of the United States, and the greater
part of whose life has been spent in the first Hos
pitals of London, Purls Philadelphia, and else
where, has effected some of the most astonish
ing cores that were ever known, many troubled
with ringing in the head and ears when asleep,
great nervousness, being alarmed et sudden
contain and bashfulness, with frequent blushing
attended sometimes with derangement of mind,
were cured immediately.
A Certain Disease.
When the misguided and imprudent votary
of pleasure finds he has imbibed the seeds of this
painful disease. it to too often happens that an
ill-timed sense of shot., or dread of discovery,
deters him from applying to those who l'rom ed
aviation and respectability, can alone befriend
him, delaying till the constitutional symptoms'
of this horrid disease make their appearance,
such as nlcerated sore throat, diseased nose,
nocturnal pains in the head and limbs, dimness
of sight, deafness, nodes on the shin bones, and
arms, blotches on the head, Nee anal extremities,
progiessing with friglithil rapidity, till at last
the palate of the mouth or the honee of the nose
full in, and the victim of this awful disease be
comes a horrid object of commiseration, till
death puts n period to his dreadful sufferings, by
sending hint to "that boutne from whence no
traveller returns," To such, therefore, Dr,
Johnston pledges himself to preserve the most
inviolable secrecy, and from his extensive prate•
Hee in the lirst hospitals of Europe and Ameri
ca, ho can confidently recommend at safe and
speedy cure to the unfortunate victim of this hot
rid disease.
It is a melancholy fact that thousands fall vie•
thus to this horrid disease owing to the unskil
fulness of ignorant pretenders who by the use of
that deadly poison Mercury, ruin the cons.i
tulion. nu& either send the unfortunate sufferer
to an untimely grave, or make the rubidato of his
life mit erable.

learned from evil companions, or at school— ha
effects of which are nightly felt, avow when a

snatched from all prospects and enjoyments of
life by the consequence otdeviating from the path
of nature and indulging in a certain secret habit
Such persons before contemplating
should reflect that a sound mind and l'ody are
the most necessary requisites to promote connu
bial happiness. Indeed without these, the jour

the prospect hourly darkens to the view; the
mind becomes shadowed with despair, and filled
with the melancholy reflection that the happiness
of another becomes blighted with our own.
