WILMOT in DIJNTINGDON
We have the pleasure of announcing to our
readers that Judge Wilmot, the man who Mr.
Packer refused to meet on the stump, will ad.
dress the people of Huntingdon Count), in the
Borough of Huntingdon, on
Friday Afternoon, September 4, 1857.
Come one and all, and lot.us have a gather

and eloquent champion of the right.
Judge Wilmot will also speak in Hollidags•
in Altoona, the afternoon of the same day.
LETTER PROM MR. EVANS.
We have the pleasure this week of laying be
fore our readers a lettev from our able candi
date for the Legislature, in which he defines
his position, clearly and ably. He asks the
support of no man without first declaring his
views and giving them to the public. Will the
opposition candidates—Messrs Wharton and
Huntx—be no candid, as honevt ? We expect,
nay, we do and have a right to demand their
sentiments on these issues, as publicly expres•
sed. There should be no flinching, no backing
out ; we must have the issues in the present
campaign clearly stated, and the positions of
the candidates as clearly defined. Mr. Evans,
it will be seen, does not befog or hide his true
sentiments under any nprovise," nor does he
fear to he thus sincere. If elected, he must be
so with his future course of action clearly de
monstrated. Read the letter
To THE FREE AND INDEPENDENT VOTERS OF
As my name stands before you as a candi
date for Assembly—to which office I have no
aspirations and present no claims on the coun
ty, for services rendered any political party,—
and inasmuch as questions of importance which
will seriously effect the financial condition of
this giant Commonwealth, (the prosperity of
which is of the greatest interest and should re
ceive the candid consideration of every tax-pay
er of the State,) arc presented to the people for
their decision, it is expected that I should de
fine my position and declare my sentiments in
relation to those questions. The people of this
Commonwealth are now called upon to express
their preferences for or against the proposed up•
propriation of three millions of dollars of the
proceeds of sale of the Main Line of our Pub
lic Improvements, to the completion of the Sun
bury dz. Erie Railroad, and also on the repeal of
the three mill tonnage tax, now imposed by the
Commonwealth on the Pennsylvania Railroad
Company. On these questions, I am tree to
say, that in case of esy election I will "first, last
and all the time," with whatever ability I may
possess, oppose the appropriation Van) , part of',
the seven and one halt* millions, to any purpose
whatever, except to the liquidation t (the oiler.
ens debt of out noble Commonwealth. I will
oppose the repeal of the three mill tonnage tax, '
which, in my opinion, ought to continue as a
source of revenue, to relieve the embarrassed
condition of the treasury—which is felt by ev
In taking this course, I am aware of the sit
uation in which I am placed : that I incur the
displeasure of the combined forces of the Pa.
It, R. Co., that I have no money to spend in a
campaign, no offices at my disposal, no money
of corporations at my command, no hired press
to sustain me, no shrewd political wire-workers
to operate for my election ; but I have to con•

ees along the Canal and Railroad. Nor do I
expect any man to vote for me, who desires an
increase of our State Tax. My desire is to
lighten the burden of the tax-payer, by appro.
priming all monies belonging to the State—af
ter necessary expenses of government shall be
met—to the liquidation of her indebtedness,
so that we may yet see the day when our farms
and workships may be relieved from the heavy
mortgage of FORTY MILLIONS OF DOL
LARS, which now rests upon the property of
every taxpayer of the State.
With proper and economical management,
the State Treasurer will never again he under
the necessity ofresorting to a loan, to moot the
intermit on the debt of the Comm nnwealth. -
But on the contrary, eight millions of the debt
could be paid the first year, and two millions
annually thereafter, whielfarrangetneut would
iu the course 'of twelve or fourteen years, ea•
tirely wipe out our debt.
here is the farmer, or mechanic, or any
tax-payer, who does not desire the payment of
our State indeltedness, especially if it can be
accomplished without any additional taxation?
Coalmont, August 27th, 1857.
This is the language of an honest and sin•
core man. Taxpayers, will you, should you,
can you oppose a man who thus honestly and
sincerely arrays himself for your benefit, against
the powers of corporations and corrupt, design•
its parties and demagogues? The question
is simply reduced to this—will you, over bur•
dosed, tax-devoured citizen of Huntingdon
County, support a candidate who has your inter
ests at heart, and who does not Heck an election
for the purpose ors/tem/Wing (to use no harsh
er term) at your expense, or will you, by oppo
sing hint, consent to a system of plundering
akin to that which for years has stained the
honor and disgraced the name ofour Common
wealth, consent to increased taxation and spy
cial favors to aristocrats, at the expense of your
sweat and labor It is a question tor your de
cision. How will you answer? Were you sin
cere when you declared yourself opposed to the
evil system which filled the pockets of bad
men with your money ? This is the test, how
will youanswer ?
Now that the Know Nothing party is utterly •
annihilated in the south, the question is asked,
what next ? The respectable and conservative
masses of the South, men who have a liking
for such representatives as was Mr. Etheridge
of Tennessee, who voted against the Nebraska
iniquity and spoke at the last session of Con
gress against the reopening of the slave
trade; men who have a liking for Mr. Crit
tenden, not simply because they agree with him
politically for the moment but because they
believe in his general fairness and manliness,
will not and cannot go over to a party whose
only argument is the revolver, who breathe
forth threatening and slaughter upon their op.
ponents, who advocate the reopening of the
slave trade, the Buchanan doctrine as set forth
in the Ostend Manifesto and the general prin.
"They shall get who have the power.
And they shall keep who can."
These men aro now eagerly asking, what
next? nod we trust that Missouri has answer.
ed the quation. There lies the business to
whirls Kentucky, Maryland, Delaware and
Virginia have soon to address themselves;
that's the true issue! Demagogues may cry
"Down! Down!" till they become hoarse as
ballad singers—there's no "Down" to it. It
will rise like the ghost of Bangui, to confront
them at every turning and push them from
their seats. Missouri lies struck the key note
in this grand new march of progress ; has
thrown to the dcgs these dead or dying issues
existence. Let the great State of Missouri;
let her shake off the incubus that has pressed
like a mountain of lead upon her and stilled
her fresh young blood at its very fountains;
let her seize the occasion which now offers, to
aid and counsel Missouri in this grand enter.
prise of emancipation, and soon she will see
this Moloch of Modern Democracy forsaking
its bloody altars on her soil, and fair peace
and smiling prosperity erecting their temples
in the places of her desolation.
A VOICE FROM TOD.
A. communication appeared in the "Alined
can" newspaper of this place, last week, par•
porting to have been written in Tod township,
but which, we may be safe iu surmising, origi
nated is this borough, wherein many hard and
unnecessarily harsh words are used against the
manner in which our candidate for Assembly
comes before the people, rte., rte. We are nor•
ry to see such schemes resorted to. The else
Lion of Mr. Evans, we hope, is a certain event,
and we believe those who oppose hint, are me,
ly "kicking against the pricks." Here is a let
ter we have received from one of the most in
fluential and honorable citizens of "Tod town ,
ship, whose name we are authorized to use if
necessary. It will be seen that he asserts just
the contrary of the "American's" correspou•
dent, who, we hope fur the sake of his honor,
will come out over his own signature .d deny
the truth of the following communication, if
he dares. Come now, Mr. Correspondent, do
you not live in our borough, and are you not
deeply interested in somebody's election P.But
read the following, which we hold is the true
state of feeling in Tod and indeed all the town
ships of the county
• For the Huntingdon Journal.
We noticed in the "Atnerictin" of last week,
an article purporting to have been written by
some unknown writer, who signs himself 'Tod,'
whose object appears to be to create the imprea•
sion abroad that Mr Evans is not the choice of
the voters of this, his native Township, for the
office of which he is a candidate. That his
proceedings and those of the "Journal" are
looked upon in this locality, as being frivolous,
insignificant and amusing.
Now, Mr. Tod is either guilty of wilful pro.
varication or is grossly ignorant of the Scott•
manta of the majority of the voters in the town
ship,--Americana, Republicans and Democrats.
In connection with our personal objections
to Mr. Wharton, as a candidate, we look upon
his nomination as being brought about through
the influence of hired emissaries, of moneyed
monopolies, and consequently do not feel our.
selves politically bound, or obligated, to sup.
We have seen the base acts, to which politi
cal aspirants have stooped, in order to secure
to themselves, the emoluments of office, and
we think it high time, that such candidates he
rejected by the honest voters of the comtnuni•
ty, and such men as Levi Evans—men of real
worth, moral integrity and christian principle,
should be placed iu their stead, and should
and will in this case, receive onr suffrages.
Tod Township, Aug. 31st, 1857.

A WORD POLITICALLY,
Come, friends, let us reason together.
You are honest voters, you dltsire the suc
cess of honest, correct principles, and the
triumph of honorable men. How are these
ends to be accomplished ? is the question
which should engage your attention, and
which we propose answering. But let us
before coining to the subject, first review
the political battle field and the leaders in
the approaching struggle, and their chan
ces of success.
Finn, then, we have one of the most im
portant questions presented for y6ur decis
ion, in the present contest, that over ugita
t•d the minds of a people. It is a ques
tion in which you, as n tax-payer, are deep-1
Ii interested, and embraces in its limits-a
duty which you ns a good and 'skilful citi.
zen, should discharge intelligently and .
with fidelity. We allude to the proposed
plundering of $3,000,000 from the Treas
ury of the Commonwealth, the removal of
the tonnage tax, &c. These questions are
momentous, and require and demand your
earnest attention. If you support for of-
lice a candidate whose election will have
a direct bearing on them, and who comes
before you uncommitted, unpledged to op•
pose such odious propositions, or whose
proclivities are favorable to them, and who
owes his nomination to the very agents
of the originators of them, we tell you, as
honest mon, you are consenting to be pion- ;
dered ; aye, aiding to increase the heavy
load of taxation under which you already
groan. As to the candidates, 'we have u
word to add.
On the "Democratic" side, Dr. Houtz.
of Alexandria, is the standard-bearer.—
He owes his nomination to the agents c(
the Pennsylvania Railroad and consequent
ly, it elected, will be necessitated, no mat
ter what he may now think, to support
that corporations' “claims."
In relation to the second candidate, S.
S. Wharton, we have something more to
say. He is alleged to have been nommat.
ed by a Union Convention of the Repub-
licans and Americana ; -•but we deny it.—
It was not a Union Convention ; its pro
ceedings do not mark it as such. No res
olutions were adopted, the :hate Ticket
was not endorsed, indeed nothing was done
of a '-Union" nature. But this is not nil:
it was currently reported that money was
freely used to bring about the result.
But, in view of all this, it may here be
asked why we endorse a portion of the tick
et, We aro in favor of harmony, as our
a great deal to keep up a harmonious spi
rit in our midst, but we will never submit
to gross imposition, fraud and corruption.
We and the honest voters of the county,
might even have submitted to the en:ire
nominations, ultra as they were, for the
sake of harmony, had a shade of justice
been shown. But we looked upon the no
mination of Wharton, as not only injudi
cious, as it manifested a spirit in conflict
with harmony, but as an imposition. a fraud
and the result of a low species of cunning
trickery, which was too palpable to be de
nied or questioned. So was it viewed by
honest voters in all portions of the county,
and the result is they have determined to
elect that honest, christian gentleman—
Levi Evans. The nomination of What.-
ton was a dead weight to the energies of
the party, and would have defeated the en
tire ticket had his name been placed before
the public in connection with it. We do
not say - this from any ill feelings towards
that gentleman; we cherish none. But
we reiterate it again, that in view of the
manner in which he procured his nornina
ties, coupled with his well known unpop•
ulurity, certain, unavoidable defeat to the
balance of the ticicet, would have been the
result of his continuance on that ticket.-
11'e speak thae we know, anti can prove
it to the satisfaction of the most ardent up
, holder and supporter he numbers in his
ranks. By way of illustration, we assert
that if Wharton and Houtz were the only
candidates spoken of, both entertaining
similar sentiments^ in relation to the great
issues now before the people of the State,
there would have been no alternative for
dissatisfied Democrats but to have voted fur
Houtz, or remained at home. Col. Whar-
ton, under the most favorable circumstan
ces, could not possible have received over
one half of the Opposition vote, and thus,
we should have forever disgraced our coun
ty by the election of a Locofoco,
The third candidate, who will be trium
phantly elected if the people remain true
to their interests, is Levi Evans. Mr. E
vans speaks for himself in another column
and speaks out nobly,
Here, fellow citizens. we have present
ed the issues, and the positions of the can
didates on those issues. The decision is
with you. How will that decision be giv
ent—on the side of justice, and for the
good of the Commonwealth and your own
interests, or in favor of the revival of the
system of plundering which has ever been
carried on wifilst the canal was owned by
the 'state. You hove but one course to
pursue if you are in favor of doing right:
VOTE FOR LEVI EVANS. Do this,

In David lVilinot we have a man that is
known—a man whose record is known to the
world's scrutiny. A man who is willing to tell
all men upon what ground he stands, and to
say to them, if you do not like my principles
do not vote for me. This is the language be
can use to the people of Pennsylvania, and
this is the language he will use when the time
comes, and proclaim those principles notwith•

and front what every man whu is a patriot and
an American, knows to be a duty—and that
is to vote for the most honest, intelligent and
earnest American for our next Governor, and
that man is David Wilmot.
The Palmylranian may endeavor to delude
—to encumpass improper ends—nay, raise
false issues. It may endeavor to seduce men
into the belief that Packer is a Pennsjlvanian
at heart, but their candidate's refusal to appear
before the people on propriu persona, leaving
to organs the task of defending him, and
ing his views, will lead that people to reject
the Locofoco nominee as a man not to be
touched by those who rel,mrd manliness and
personal bravery an the essential cheracteris•
tics of one who assumes to be a leader.
NOT VERY CONSISTENT.
A week or two ago, Judge Wilmot, the Re.
publican candidate for Governor, invited Gen.
Packer, the Democratic candidate for the estee
office, to join him in addressing the people of
Pennsylvania on the questions at issue in the
present canvass. The Democratic State Coin
mittee decided that the invitation should be de
clined, on the ground that this mode of discus.
sing political questions betbre the people was
unusual here and uncalled for; also, that the
' questions which would be considered had al
ready been fully discussed at the late Presides.

enough that they should show that their spin•

The Crushing Game.
One of the prominent opposers of Mr. Evans
in this borough, has made his threats which
he purposes carrying into execution immedi
, ately, if not sooner, that he will call a meeting
of his friend+, in every township of the county,
and withdraw the name of every subscriber to
the Journal, for our "presumption" in during
to emote trickery. In carrying out this plait,
we would merely tell him that whilst wo are
perfectly satisfied that he should "pitch in"
to his heart's content, we reserve the right
which we shall most certainly exercise, of
prosecuting immediately after the election, any
and every individual who shall in any manner
attempt so foolish a thing as that proposed—
