Tint COUNTY SUPERINTENDENCY.—In our
'brief notice of Mr. Yc•Divitt in laid week's Jour.
nal, we said nothing about his claims on the
friends of education, supposing the Convention
would be governed in its choice, mainly, by the
character nod qualifications of the several can•
didates. But as the claims of other gentlemen
have been urged upon the Convention, see deem
It proper to state some of the "claims" of Mr.
McDivitt In the first place, he has been a
successful teacher in this, his native county,
,/br twelve or Xtteen years. He has bleu a
prominent part in all the approvBd educational
movements of the times. Ile is one of that
noble bend of teachers, who five years ago,
wrote and talked into being the Huntingdon
County Teachers' Institute ; he has attended all
its meetings, recorded all its proceedings—
sometimes requiring whole quires of writing
and has been a main pillar of its support from
its origin to the present time. Besides these
onerous labors, at home, he hag most of the
time held the post of Recording Secretary to
the State Teacher's Association, a very lahori•
(sus office. This report of Gov. Pollock's ad.
dress, delivered at Harrisburg last winter, is
ample proof on this point; and the very filet
that such a distinguished Indy of men selected
him for that responsible office and have thus
for continued him in it, is no trifling evidence
of his character and standing amongst the great
educators of the State. It is at least a snore
reliable evidence than any amount of tiewspa.
per recommendations, however smoothly they
may be worded.
Mr. illeDivitt has also written many sensible
article.;, practical essays, and eloquent lectures
on the subject of education. And though his
natural modesty has restrained him from seek.
ing notoriety, be enjoys in a high degree, ace
respect and friend,hip of the oldest nod ablest
teachers wherever he is known,; whilst he is
ever ready, without arrogance or an...air of su
periority," to counsel and advise with the young
This is a simple statement of facts ; and in
view of them, we can truly say, that if any other
easdiduto now in the field, has stronger claims
than these, they have entirely escaped the uo•
tice of competent, unprejudiced observers.—
We have neither seen nor heard tell of claims .
like these in the history of any other aspirant.
We Lope they may have their just weight.
&moot. TaacnEltS.—Next Saturday evening
the Directors of this district meet to appoint
six teachers for our Public Schools. This is it
ettai7 of the utmost importance. and the Direc
tors should be very careful in fulfilling it. It

Monsus EDITORS t—lt appears the Shirley..
burg Herald is out for Mr. Albert Owen for
County Superintendent, and nobody wonders at
that, fur it is well known that It is pledged to
locate the Normal School at that place, which
will be au advantage to the citizens, by helping
to sustain their Seminaries. The Herald is
right in trying to promote the interests of its
own locality. But the Huntingdon Globe speaks
of a communication front recommen
ding Mr. Owen for that oftice ; this we think
very strange. Is there really any one in our
community willing to place a was in a position
of influence, who is touching our dearest inter
ests—our Setnitutry—by his arrangements with
a rival institution 7 It seems impossible. But
if there is each a one, ho must intend to re

For the Hunlintglosi Journal,
Nessus. EIIITORS :
A report has been started in this neighbor.
hood within the last few days that Albert Owen
is running for County Su petietondent. As I
have seen no candidate announced in the pa.
pea, Z am inclined to doubt the rumor, and to
think with others that it has been got up to in _
jure Mr. OWCO'S Normal School, as everybody.
knows that the same individual cannot be ac
ceptably connected with both these concerns.
Thus, Mr. Kerr, superintendent of Allegliany,
and Mr. Wickersham, of Lancaster county,
tried it and failed, although they are vastly !su
perior men and universally beloved and respee•
ted by the Directors, people, and teachers of
their respective counties. Mr. Wickersham
had to resign his office of Superintendent
of Lancaster county, and Mr. Kerr to drop
his connection with the Normal School of Alle.
gliany ; the former did so promptly, and the lat.
ter after a severe struggle and serious trouble.
And if there distinguished educators, eloquent
orators, and popular Christian men failed to
render satisfaction in this two fold capacity, it
is simply absurd for .t ordinary man to un
dertake it. I conclude, therefore, that some
ono hos stinted this report here to "raise the
wind" against the Normal School, or, on the
the other hand, that the Normal School has
been talked of for the purpose of "raising the
wind" ie Senor of Mr. Owen. If the former be
true, the report should be put down, and it the
latter, it should put down the party practising
the deception. I don't believe in injurhos c an •
dilates by false issues ; still less do I believe
in men obtaining office on false pretences.
Please publish this if you have room, and
perhaps it may call forth the truth, which is
whet we Want in this region.
