COVNTY COINENTIOA. '
The Republicans of Huntingdon County dr ,
requested to meet at the respective places oi,
holding delegate elections, in the several town•
ships, on Saturday the 7th day of' .lAtrch, at i
the usual time, to elect delegates to attend a
County Convention, to assemble in the Court
House inthe Borough of Huntingdon, on 77turs
day, the 12th of March, 1857, at 2 o'clock, p.
m., to elect delegates to represent the County
in a Republican State Convention to meet in
Harrisburg, on the 25th day of March, to twat.
inthe a State Ticket. By order of the Re•
publican County Committee.
J. GEO. MILES, Chairman.
Hunt., Feb. 24, '57.
The Call for a State Convention.
A great amount of unnecessary surmising
and any quantity of unasked opinions have
been expended, relative to the impropriety of
the call lately issued by the Chairman of the
Republican State Committee, Charles Gibbons
Esq., for a separate, distinct, and purely Re
publican State Convention, to place in nomina
tion an out-and-out Republican candidate for
Governor. Most of the journals which denounce
the movement as premature and out of order,
are of the "Side-door Sanderson" school, which
Judas-like betrayed the two parties rot long a
go into the hands of the enemy, "for a sum of
money." We are slimy to see however, that a
few of the staunch and able newspapers which
no gallantly defended 'Freedom and Fremont"
last fall, are not altogether convinced of the
propriety of the movement. For our ,ingic
self, we can see no evil in the move. Is it the
"Expediency" that May is necessary ? We
candidly confess we have tot faith in it. We
should profit by the experience of the past.—
No organization can become groat, tin fountain
can remain pure, which is compelled in order !
to keep up the current, to receive the waters of
every unwholesome rill. "Expediency . ' indeed!
Is the great Republican movement to become
a mere combination of pernicious "Ma. We
have, as we remarked some time ago, faith in
Principle—none, Lotto whatever, in Frxpedi
ency. If it is to become the mere follower of
the Jack ceLantern of Expediency—to catch
the fragments of this or that party by a little
more or less of some apparently popular el.
invent—it, like the old whig party, which once
—l. r It •.a.t
remnant of ,what, was once the great Arnarican
party to Pennsylvania last full opposed a union
with Republicanism, basing that opposition on
the presumption that the triumph of the latter
would be the death-knell of the fimmer. Was
not argument, and persuasion, and coaxing,
and fluttery, and this; and that, and everything
presented and used to disapprove this notion ?
Well, what was the result? A "Side-Door" in.
terview, and Arnold-like, treacherous betrayal.
.Fusion - is fo'ly.—poor, miserable expedien
cy, which has uo faith in Truth or in the people.
The lesson taught in all the States where
pour shift was tried. rendersall other warninp,
unnecessary. And are we again to turn the
current of our mighty, deepening river of Re.
publicanism, to catch the ivaters of a minter
rivulet, fast drying up? For Our part, we have
done all we intend doing toward , . c.xipg and
flattering men to do what is right. We i ll im
more of it. We have no desire to again be
come the victims of a 'Side-door" pressure.
With this candid yiew, , and believing it to be tho
unanimous desire of the Republican 'party of
Huntingdon County, we heartily .endorse the
"Call" and call attention to the notice of our
County Chairman, tbr a convention to appoint
delegates to attend the propn:ted State Conven•
Son. A pure Republican ticket is what we
want, what we will support, and what we must
have. No alliances, no compromise of Princi
ple, no bonding to Expedien,y.. So we say, so
we thinkond so we shall act.

ST. VALENTINE'S I) ,—Some years since
it would have been a work of supererogation
to inform mankind (and ,the ladies) that the
14th of February was St. Valentine's Day;
but more's the pity, its glory has departed.—
Its origin ig n is a sea of doubt—its 'necessity
even more Abtful; There can be no ques-.
Ron that its beginning"was a lotig . time buck
in the history of the worldwhen Rome was
the uncle Samuel of the nations ; hnt if any
one is curious on that score let him constilt. an
enoyelopedia.. The custom, however, had
got to ho an unmitigated. nuisance. From. be
ing the occasion when lqye turn swains sent
'their dearies "a token of atlbetion," the baser
sort made use of the day to insult people by
ferwardiug to them vile caticaturesor beastly
devices. Of necessity decent folks frowned
upon the Saint until he is now unpopular
enough. There were too many who "stole thy
'livery of Heaven to serve the devil in." It is
now a poor husines a, that of selling Valentines.
But the mannfacturers have .only theta: kes
to blame for the falling off. If they had nut
catered to the depraved tastes of the vicioud
St. Valentine would still be in good repute—as
it is, he has suffered a second martyrdom.
