The County Ticket,
Tor good and sufficient reasons, which will
be understood and appreciated by honest and
intelligent voters, we feel it our duty to with.
hold our support from a portion of the ticket
nominated on the 11th instant. The hostility
to the first two nominees is so wide•spread and
intense, that any other course on our part,
would leave the whole ticket to an inevitable
for Mews. Wharton and Glasgow arefreafi
from the ranks of the people, are not in any
way connected with past party intrigue, and
will command the support of all the friends of
fair, honorable political action. Their election,
which we confidently predict—in connection
with the balance of the ticket-:-will be a Can
tary lesson to the demagogues of all parties,
and teach them that the people are, after all,
capable of maintaining their rights and the in•
terests of the Commonwealth.
Iu supporting the ticket, as now constituted,
we will make no unprovoked attack on any
man or party, but hold ourselves prepared to
defend our course and repel every assailant by
such facts and arguments as truth-shall justify
and MIMES dOlll/111d.

ship. Mr. Evans is one of the pioneer settlers
of the southwestern portion of our county; a
man known to the whole community, honored
and beloved for the upright, honest and consis
tent course, socially and politically which has
ever marked his life. Such men, in our legit
'halve halls, would be honorable to the cone.•
pity, and confer lasting credit on the constituen•
ey they represent. We need just such men in
our Legislature as Mr. Evans,—men who will
not stoop to the gratification of their iustsgror
gold and silver at the expense of honor, justice
and their duty as sworn representatives of the
sovereign people. And where is the tone who
would dare question the truth of the assertion
that our Legislative Halls have often been con.
verted into places for the enactment of crimes
of bribery and corruption. We must eradicate
this evil, sod the only way to accomplish this
desirable object, is by the selection or election
of men above bribery, who do not seek n num.
illation from motives of "pecuniary diameter,"
but who will be true to the principles of jut•
tire, honor and integrity, true to their constitu.
ents, the interests of the Commonwealth, and
to themselves. We can support no one for this
office who will not come up to this standard.—
Levi Evans, in every particular and point, fully
fills this measure, .d we hereby enlist our ev.
ery energy in his behalf and shall exert our ev
cry faculty and whatever ability we possess, to
secure his election; and we call upon Republi.
cans, Americans, Democrats, men of all par
ties who love the right, and desire to do right,
to aid us. Come, one and all, and push on the
column. Levi Evans will be our next Repre
tentative if our people have not determined on
shutting their eyes to honest, straightforward,
integrity, andwinking at or openlycounienane•
ing political dishonesty, corrupt nominations or
political demagogueistn. Men of Huntingdon
County, what say you ?
For Prothonotary, JAMES McELROY, of
Porter township. It is unnecessary for us to
Say anything of the abilities of this gentleman.
Mr. McElroy is a man known to the communi•
ty as a gentleman of stern integrity, and busi.
ness qualificatious second to none other in the
comity. He never asked for an office, never
sought one, and does not now ; he only
consents to permit his name to he used in cots.
nection wills the office of Prothonotary, at the
earnest and urgent solicitation of his numerous
friends. We place his name at our masthead
with & P6figßAPii U 16191. chaff.,,l"Ur t .U m
didate one of the noblest works of God---an
honest man. We look upon the election of
James McElroy, as a very probable if net a
certain event, and to accomplish it we are rea
dy to "fight the good fight."
For Register mid Recorder, HENRY GLA.
ZIER, of Hulitingduit. Mr. Glazier has filled
this office for the past three years, with great
credit to hiutself and the utmost satisfaction to
the people. Honesty, integrity, nod honor, is a
part of his nature. Indeed, so well and favor•
ably is Mr. Glazier's probity known in thccon.,
munity, that it has passed into a proverb, and
nhonest Harry Glazier," is the appellatieu by
which be is familiarly known. With such a
tune as Mr. Glazier on our ticket we have no
fears of defeat. His election is beyond a per
adventure, a fixed, unalterable, certain, unde
niable, self evident fact. This is the same gen.
tleman who carried his election over tl o co•
harts of Locofocoism, arrayed against him some
three years ago, and licked diem inn fair field
fight, to the tune of lire thousand majority !
We are proud of such men, such nominees, and
with a certain victory in view, we enter boldly
the arena, and defy the whole Locofoco camp.
For Treasurer, FRANKLIN 11. LANE. of
Brady township. Mr. Lane is the present in
cumbent of this office, hehaving been appoint.
ed en decease of A. B. Crewit, and has held
the office for a period of three or four mouths,
rendering satisfaction to all parties, and
ning troops of friends. Mr. Lane is a gentle.
man, a scholar, and we have no doubt will give
his Locofoco competitor, ono of the "roughest
roads to travel," he ever experienced, and coup
pel him to "hang up his fiddle and his bow oh.
oh," in an inglorious defeat. Mr. Lane will, of
course be elected, and by such a majority as
will: make Mr. Lightner bear thunder and think
he's struck by lightning.
For County Commissioner, GEORGE W.
MATTERN, of Franklin township. Mr. Mat.
tern has been a lifelong opponent of Locofo•
coism, and has never swerved from the line of
duty, or faltered when culled into the action.—
That he will be elected is "sure as fate."
For Dirt ctor of the Poor, PERRY MOORE,
of Morrii township. Mr. Moore has several
times been elected to office by the people of the
county, by large majorities, and we have not a
shadow of airoubt of his success in the coming
contest. The people delight to honor honest,
upright citizens, and will elect him by stela.
illation, almost.
For Auditor, PHILIP D. STEVENS, of
Cass township. We are glad to see the selec
tion of goad men made for these small office.
Mr. Stevens is a man well known to the com.
!milky, as fully meeting Jackson's standand—
he is honest and capable, and will receive our
hearty support.
Here is an unexceptionable ticket. It con.
tains no worn oat party hack, no tool for mum.
tooth corporations or rich aristocrats. Unex

doubt one of the best tickets ever presented to
the voters of the county. We ask the hearty

When Packer was nominated we heard a
great deal from his trumpeters about his abili
ty on the stump, his immense powers no an or
ator, and the certainty of his vanquishing the
'Black Republicans' by his single might. A
ter Wilmot was nominated, and it was given
out that he would probably challenge Packer,
the democratic press was mightly tickled at
the preposterousness of the idea. Wilmot
challenge Packer! lie would never think of
such an act of assurance ; as well put his head
into the lion's mouth at once I Presently it
was reported that Wilinot had challenged hint;
but the locofoco leaders were incredulous and
suffered themselves to deny it as a thing
shot could not be. Then came the letter itself
from Judge Wilmot, inviting his opponent to
canvass the state with him ; and although the
poor leaders were astonished at such extraor•
dinary temerity, they never doubted for a me
meat that Packer would accept the challenge
and administer a fitting rebuke to one who da
red thus confront the giant.
This was the state of affairs until Pucker,
the great orator and statesman, ignominiously
fled affrighted from Wilmot, and took refuge
behind the State Committee. The latter was
thus compelled to stand up as a shield before
him, and put forth a manifesto to the faithful
explaining why the challege was declined.—
Alas for the expectant democracy ! Instead

son, N. Y.—This great work, just published, is
in ninny respects superior to any work of th e
kind ever before issued. It embraces all North
America south of the 50th degree of North
Latitude, including the Canadies.
States, Mexico, Central America, West hullo
Islands, end a part of. South Allied.. There
are indeed other maps which M.clude this same
extent of territory, as Munk's Mithell's New
and Colton's, but none of these works con
make any pretensions to merit equal to this of
Johnson's. In the first place it is much lar
ger than either of these, being 72 by 80 inches
in size. This large scale has enabled the
author to insert a vast amount of information
of the highest importance which neither of the
other works were able to contain. Hence the
Counties of all the States and Territories are
ditinctly colored and named, the principal
towns, the railroads, A., Ac. We are particu
larly pleased with the Imount of recent info.-
motion it contains in the new Territories. We
find, for example Arnizonia, and many Lew
places which we have looded in vain on othe r
maps to find.
It also contains a map of the World on
Mercator's projection, on a much larger scale
and more full, complet •, and thoroughly fin•
lobed than any other we have seen. On this
also u•e find something new and recent, the
discoveries of Dr. Kane in Polar Sea ;
all the plans discovered and named by the Dr.

Gas Meters
As our citizens are now interested in Gas
Matters, the following iteta trim the New

probably not be uninteresting to them :
ut• Cr A:3 suit for rent of
Gas Meters, furnished by the Gas Company,
was recently decided in New York City, against
the company. The court held that as meters
were fur the use of measuring the quantity of
gas consumed, they were for• the benefit of
the Gas Companies, like the weights and meas•
ures of merchants, or the meters of Water
Companies. The seller and not the buyer are
hound to furnish the means of ascertaining the
quantity he delivers, and he is hotted to verify
the de:ivery of the quantity he charges for in
his bill, before ho can demand payment. The
Judge said: "I am entirely satisfied that the''
companies have no legal rgiltt to charge toe
the use of their jolts and weights, or the
man fur his gther meter. In each case
the dealer lass to adoptsotne means °lasses.
tattling how much the customer has had."
This cuts ofla large revenue of the Gas Com
pany in New York, and will affect Gas Com
panies everywhere, if it be sustained as law,
as it will undoubtedly he.
There is very little demand for Flour to-day.
