"01lee more our glorious banner out
Unto the breeze we throw ;
Beneath its folds with song and shout
We'll charge upon the Jim."

PHILIP D. STEVENS, of Cass township,
One of the largest and most enthusiastic
meetings ever held in our borough, convened
in the Court House on Friday evening last, to
hear our able and eloquent candidate Judge
WILMOT. It was one of the most powerful,
eloquent and convincing appeals we have ever
listened tc, and aroused the audience to the
highest pitch of enthusiasm.
From some unaccountable reason or motive,
the Secretaries have not given us the proceed
ings to publish, but we hope to lay them before
our readers next week.
Everything passed oil well with the sweep-
rims of an attempt made by a few Hazlehurst
Straightout blackguards, and scoundrels, the
MAO. of Wharton, to create a disturbance by
having a resolution passed denouncing our pa
per, and to cheer for Straightoutism. This
however was confined to a circle of Imeofocos
and other Ishmaelites.
runt "M U." TAX+
Levi Evens, our candidate for Assembly, ilaS
come out boldly and honestly to opposition to
the removal of this tax from that great monop'
oly—the Pennsylvania Railroad.' He comes
out honestly in opposition to the plundering of
$3,000,000 from our Treasury, proposed under
the garb of aiding a railroad. Ile comes out
honestly in opposition to an increase of taxa
tion, and declares hitnsplf "first, last and all
the time opposed to any scheme which will in•
crease the State debt, or place a heavier load
upon the already overburdened shoulders of
tax•payers." His supporters are those who are
in favor of promoting the interests of the pm,
ple and the consequent prosperity of our good
old Commonwealth. Here you have his plat
form. Taxpayer what think you of it ? Do
you wish more taxes? Then oppose him. Are
you in favor of plundering the Commonwealth
and placing unbounded power its the hands of
mammoth corporations 7 Then don't vote for
Levi Evans, for ho is not the man for you. But
if you are in favor of keeping on tire three mill
tax, Bc., vote for Levi EMT.. There is not a
single individual in the county who is in any
way connected with the Pennsylvania Railroad,
so tire as our knowledge extends, but who 9ppo.
ses Evans and supports Wharton or Houtz I
Why is this? Why simply because the latter
gentlemen aro favorable to taking off the three
"mill" tax and Mr. Evans is not. Is anything
more required 7—then here it is t Dr. Houtz
would never have been nominated had it been
thought he was trot in favor of taking off the
taxi because the Convention which nominated
him was controlled by Anderson A Co., and
Anderson is the Railroad personified.
Now it is only necessary to look at those who
support Wharton, to see that he "is tarred with
the same stick." Who are they ? Those COLI•
needed with the Railroad. Aides Benedict
supports hint, and Alden is employed by the
corporation; in fact ho is a mere "pimp" of Mr.
Anderson. We believe this is the gentleman
who holds the doctrine that "poor men have
no business to own a cow," and ilkilled by the
railroad "the Company has no right to poy da•
AP . ' Such is the character of the opposition to
Mr. Evans. It behooves the honest voters of
the county to look at both sides and vote for the
right. The issues are presented, the position
of candidates defined, and you are called upon
to decide. Taxpayers, ponder. Think belbre

It lo but right and proper that the people of
the county should .know something of the
men (1) who, violating every principle of honor
and trampling upon every law of justice and
common decency, presented and acted upon
the .resolution" published in another place, in
the meeting held in this borough, on Friday
evening, intended to annihilate us, and do oth•
er serious damage to the world at large.
The individual who first originated the move
was Samuel S. Wharton. The creature who
wrote and presented the pope' was Aiden W.
Benedict, (let Antold behis alias,) and the
tools who acted on it, in the yelling and blow.
ing way were the publishers of the Huntingdon
American and some half dozen other Locofocos
disguised in the garb of Straight-out Ameri
cans, in this borough. We claim it as a right
and feel it to be a duty to enter a brief notice
of these "worthies."
Samuel Wharton has won for himself an un
enviable reputation. His course, ever since
he has appeared upon the political stage lips
been marked by every species of low cunning,
(which passes for tact among his admirers,)
and political debauchery. He was, is, and
ever will be, at all times, all things to all men.
He is a man, who, to carry out his selfish ends
and accomplish his selfish objects, would stoop
to almost any depth of political knavery. He
was once, when the material of the county was
worked up, nominated and elected by a small
majority to ropnesent us in the Assembly. His
course, whilst there, was marked only by
schemes and plans for sellaggrandixement,
and, through his instrumentality, bills were
passed which defrauded and cheated the citi•
zees of the county out of thousands of dollars.
He was instrumental in procuring the enact.
ment of certain laws contrary to the expressed
desires and in conflict with the interests ors
majority of his constituents, and boldly, in de•
fiance of every principle of integrity and con•
reel and fair dealing suppressed the true senti
ments of his constituency in numberless in.
stances. But time and space forbid mention of
hundreds of other cases of like nature, in which
lie misrepresented the people. Enough has
I been shown to convince any sane man, that he
is an unsafe person to trust with the interests
of a community whose every official act has
been in direct conflict with the desires ola nca.
jority of his constituency, With such a course
of legislative action, and such unparalleled
treachery to his party and former friends sta•
ring him in the face, Col. Wharton sought,
after his term had expired, a re-nomination.
His line of conduct was then fresh in the minds
of the people, and with a unanimity which did
honor to the hearts and heads of the free and
intelligent voters of Huntingdon county, they
spurned his claims and thus openly and unrms
takably repudiated him and his official actions.
NO9OOllBl. was this well-merited rebuke admin
istered to him by the Whig ;may of the comity,
than he, S. S. Wharton, came out an indepen•
dent candidate in opposition to the regular no
minee of the party which had formerly elected
him ; and, in conjunction with the very Locofe.
eon whom he now declares we are aiding, en.
dentoted to defeat the Whig nominee and
I cure a triumph of Locoibeuism. Nor is this
all. At that very election Samuel S. Wharton
Wed the entire Locofoco tic!.•et ! Yes, freemen,
he who now denounces us as aiding Locofoco
ism—knowing that through the fale.e passage
of his throat he lies—endeavored to defeat the
Whig ticket and voted openly for the Locofoco
candidates! Nor in Ws all, although it is suf.
ficient to damn him forever in the eyes of him.
est net, for as late na last fall we find him nr•
rayed against union and harmony, openly cour
ting the smiles of Locofocos, and acting in
such manner as would best promote the inter•
ests and secure the triumph of Border Ruffian•
ism. Thus is familiar to you ;we need go .o
farther And now, honest voters of Hutting•
don, this is one of the men who tell you we are
seeking to aid the Loeofoco party. Where,
think you, as men of intelligence, me the con
science of such a creature ? With the most
audacious effrontery, after thus•time and again
resorting to the lowest cunning to aid the Lo•
cofoco party, he had the impudence to offer
himself as a candidate, this summer, for the
Assembly, "subjeet to the decision of a Union
County Convention !!" Impudence unparal
leled 1 Effrontery without a precedent ! How,
how honestly, how, in the name of all that is
consistent, and all that is good, could such a
man, who has shown front his past action that
he is at heart a Locofbco, be nominated as the
choice of the auti•Locnfsea voters of Hunting-
I don? Wharton had no claims on them ; rc
i more Oahu than has James Buchanan. We
know all this, and you, fellow.citivlis. it y,,a
are not wilfully blind and deaf, must know it
Such is the political hishry of the man who
is the prime mover in this 'fresolution."
you, citizens of Huntingdon county, apart from
all considerations of character, support such a
man ? How can you, after twat a course,
place any confidence in the man who can
tray you with a .kiss," who can he capable of
treachery to his party and disloyalty to his
friends, only equalled by an Arnold or a Herr
who has sacrificed your interests and and spit
upon and done violence to your principles?
Will you not, as freemen, who love your coun
try, your party and the laws of society, teach
him that lesson he so greatly needs, that your
rights are not to be jeopardized by incompe•
tent, unprincipled and had men.
We are content to abide your decision and
shell with confidence look forward to your an.
swer at the ballot•box.
The next character in this "farce upon farce"
is one Alden W. Benedict, a fourth-class law
yer of this borough, and a man of undoubted
ability—in his own estimation. There are
two reasons which induced Alden to drag him
self from his seclusion, and unbury the Nded."
dy tomahawk : Ills unquenchable thirst tor no
toriety and his bitter personal animosity to our
selves individually. We had once intended to
let Mr. B. rest, and, like a dead mackerel by
moonlight, "shine and stink, and stink and
shine" to his heart's contest, but "second
thoughts is beet," and we are content to notice
him briefly.
We hare never knoan a political campaign
to puss over, tint this gentleman did not do
something desperate "to get his name in the
papers." He once took umbrage at us, and
coming to discontinue his paper, found an ac.
count of some ten or fifteen years standing, for
subscription, against him, and because we
charged hint full rates, "plead the limitation
on the Account." He next attacked us in the
Globe and Ametiran of this place, and in lan
guage which shocked decency, indulged in low,
vulgar abuse of us. We retaliated, bttt in pro
per language, and the result has been seem
Mr. B. has been interred—politically—never
again to enjoy the pleasant sunshine of puliti•
cal prosperity.. So much for the latter reason
fur his conduct now. His "unquenchable
thirst for notoriety," Vie second, often gets the
better of his judgment, an as a consequence,
often places him in unenviable positions. We
pity him for this, and cannot but trent him less
severely than others. Mr. B. has a peculiar
mode of defence ; we have never yet known him
to engage in a newspaper war in which he did
not drag his Christian profession into the ere.
on, and seek to profit by representing himself
in the character of an injured Christian. Nor
should we be at all astonished should he appear
next week in his old assumed character. Mr.
B. accuses us, in his resolution, an seeking to
aid Locofueoism. Mr. B. is a chnrcl:•stemher,
but we have no hesitancy, whatever, in telling
him that he lies—under a mistake. But this
stereotyped islander in too ridiculous to merit
our notice, and as we had merely intended on
commencing this article to give the antecedents
of the indi +ideals who are attem piing to saddle
upon us this cloned and cursing crime, we pen
seed to take a retrospective glance at A iden,

the candidate for Assembly. The nominations
were made fairly and honorably, and without
doubt were the hottest expression of the voters
of the county. Was Mr. Benedict in favor of
those nominations? No sirs ! He opposed
them; he opposed them bitterly; he opposed
them with all his abilities; and he travelled
through the county to secure the defeat of the
Whig candidate, Mr. Maguire, and the success
of the Locofltco candidate, Samuel S. Wharton.
Dare be deny tr. ? We challenge him. Is this

made by that Courention ; and yet, such at man

the face, before a respectable cult Inanity, could

since 1853, has been one continued and con.

his errors, and satisfied every reasonable mind
that he dwells among the "departed spirits" of
the political world. Fur the good of our

well formed sidle= of the Ponn'a Railroad, to
impose upon them. • Anderson & Co. secured
the nomination cf Houtz, ai.d such men as A.
Benedict, over whom Andersou has unbounded
power, if not complete control, were the wire•
pullers in Wharton's nomination. The Rail
road is perfectly safe no matter which (Wharton
or Houtz) is 'elected.
