Beneath its folds with song and shout
We'll charge upon the foe."

A Word to Honest Voters.
Can you vote for a man whose political ac
tions have been marked by the lowest cunning
and treachery, whose private character is aut.
lied by crime, or to whom you cannot with feel
ings of security and perfect safety trust your
affairs ? Can you endorse the actions of a man
who has deceived you, who has labored to sell
you, and who is even now engaged in a scheme
to plunder you? If you cannot, read the rec•
ord of an honest man, and if it meets your ids
as, vote for him. Our enemies may tell you
that our candidate for Assembly—Levi Evans
—is a wealthy aristocrat, but it is false. Mr.
Evans has been brought up to bard labor ; from
414?).1984,, , v,AtfidF"7VE k iedirethint ff.' ,
severance and a life of sobriety, coupled wit h
economy, he 'gas amassed a considerable for
tune, but he defies any man to point to a single
instance in whirls he has obtained ono dollar
or one penny of his wealth by dishonesty or by
fraud. He defies any man to point to a single
instance in which he has has stepped off the
threshold of honer and honesty, for lucre. If
he has wronged a man out of a farthing, why
don't his enemies prove it ? If he has broken
any of the civil laws, why don't they point to it?
If he has in ariy manner, shape or form defrau
ded his neighbor. done any act in his public or
private life which was wrong, for the purpose of
gain, ho demands that it should be roads pub
lie. But there is une, and from the manner in
which it is announced, we would be led to sup
pose it to be a serious charge, which the politi
cal enemies of Mr. Evans bring against him.
They charge hint with being a member of the
Methodist church ! That ho associates wills
members of that particular denomination. That
he contributes towards the support of that reli
gious sect. And last, that he is unst•orthy of
public confidence from these causes. To all
these charges, except the last, we plead guilty.
We acknowledge, that, from his mother's knee
Levi Evans has been taught to love and cher
iab old Wesley's faith. We acknowledge that
he is a member of the Methodist church. We
acknowledge that he contributes to the support
of that church—as we have bees informed by
a minister of this church, that, from his own
knowledge, Mr. Evans last year gave 8150 to•
wards its support, besides contributing largely
to other religious denominations. But we do
not believe him unworthy the an pport of good
men on this account, and we can hardly believe
that our good citizens will withhold their suf.
trages from him for this season.
The Methodist Church has taken a more de
cided stand against oppression and human bon
dage, than any other religious body in this laud,
Whilst others have in a measure "set their fa
ces against this abomination of Israel," it has
"cried aloud and spared not" "neither has it
countenanced the oppressor." Jesuitism has
no stronger foe than Methodism. In fact, on
all the great questions which have given a pro
gressive movement to Christianity, the Meths
diet church has been always sound. There is.
therefore, no good nor valid reason for oppos
ing any man on account of his Methodism.
Let it be understood, then, that Levi Evans
belongs to the Methodist Church, and, if there
is a voter in Huntingdon County who, with the
"Huntingdon American" and its wire pullers,
considers it a disqualification for office, he does
not wish his support. He wishes to be perfect
ly square before the people, and will seek no
man's vote through deception. Therefore let
no man vote for him who upholds the Hunting
don American's doctrine.

In the Hutt; ngtion "American" of some

say, that no honest member of the Methodist
church will sanction the course of Evans," &e.
This is intended for the inetnbe'rs of that deno
minedcn here as elsewhere, who have declared
their prefers noes for Evans, as well as to cast
an imputation against Mr. Evans' character as
a Christian and a gentleman. This vile and
malignant slander has, however, had the effect
we presumed it would have, of arousing the in
dignation of those who know Evans, and who
love the doctrines of the thatch he supports.
We have received f. om Rev. .1. F. PORTER,
pastor of the church to which gr. Evans be•
longs, the following certificate, which we think

There, slanderers of Christian character, you
must invent some other scheme to injure our
candidate. Het ewe have the unsolicited, un•
qualified endorsal of his christian profession by
his pastor. Is anything more required on this
point 1 But perhaps the "American" may not
accept this endorsal, coming as it does from a
member of that persuasion it denounces 7--
How is it ?
"Fire" and Fall Back.
The lost Huntingdon American acco,es us
of having deserted Americanism, of being a
"traitor to the United States," (including all
that portion of territory between Canada and
the Gulf of Mexico, ike.,) "our creed," and the
Lord only knows what else. Why do these im
maculate editors say, this? Is it true that wo
deserted or broke any of the obligations impo
sed upon us by a connexion with that order?
No, we have not, and we defy them to prove it.
We joined that order at special request, and
cod up to all its requirements.. When the oaths
and obligations were abolished, we considered
ourself no longer bound to support, contrary to
our inclinations, unprincipled men, and for that
reason partly we opposed Mr. Wharton. Let
us see whether these editors have lived entire
ly free from blame. We aro willing to be qua'.
hied that these men asserted, in our presence,
that they voted for (bullies Miller, the Locofo•
co nominee for Sheriff, last fall ; and if this
was not a direct, open and flagrant breaking of
obligations, then we don't know what it is,
But they are raising this cry to direct Maen•
tion from the questions we put to them two
weeks ago. When they see proper to come
and take up our wager of $5O that we made
them then, we may condeseerd to notice them
individually again. Till then, fizzle and

say, until you take up our offer of $5O, that wo
can prove you base liars.

Tim balance of the ticket will be found un

honest men will act consistently and support
honest men for office.
Our Apology.
We believe we owe an apology to the public
for the failure on our pact to lay before our rea•
ders the explanation of the ease "Wharton vs.
G win" &e., published in our last. The fact of
the case is this--we had a full and concise ex•
planation of the matter written out, and partly
in type, when we reconsidered the mutter, and
nt the request of a particular friend, concluded
to drop it altogether. This we have dune not
for the sake of the Col. but to spare the feelings
of his respectable relatives, who of course wed
feel for him.
The Huntingdon "American" of last week,
dares us to show that corruption and (rand,

Wharton. They publish an affidavit made by
one Ashael Corbin, charging Levi Eviufs with

SEPTEMBER 25th, 1857
On Tuesday, the I Ith day of August last,—
the day on which the Union County Conven
tion assembled, over which body I was Presi
dent, I was approached by a certain Ashael
Corbin, a delegate to said Convention, who,
after gratifying me with the intelligence that
he was "devil Asa," proposed to cast his vote,
together with others over whom he had control, (or
Levi Evans, provided I supported a Mr. White
fur Register and Recorder. 1 replied that it
was expected of me by say constituents that I
would support Mr. Glazier, and that I hod not
known that Mr. White wits a candidate until
than. To this, Corbin replied that ho and his
colleague with all their three were going for
Evans, at any rate, and that we should do
something for their titan. He said further that
he could wield a considerable influence in that
body, as he had some twelve delegates to do his
bidding. I had only moved a few feet when I
wits beset by one Col. S. S. Wharton, who, af
ter telling me I was acting rather strangely,
said he was the man that could poll a stronger
vote than any other toms its the comity, by 800
votes ; that lie would receive 1000 Democratic
votes. I replied that he was not the strong
man, that he aright know more of his chance
than I did, but he had no strength its our ;ran
of the county, and asked him how he expected
to get those 1000 Democratic votes. After en
joining me to strict secresy, until the Conven

understood between hint and the Democrats that

this place who have Indotigial to chat Church

a Methodist? Must a man be denounced when
he is brought out before the people for office
because he is a Methodist? Some I read the
article referred to in the American, I have
made some inquiry about the matter and find
that Mr. Evans is a Methodist—his father was
a Methodist—his grandfather was sa Methodist
—Lis brother is a Methodist preacher. But
what of that? Is that any reason why the
Methodist Church should be appealed to against:
Mr. Evans? What du the editors of the Amer

as a Methodist, and then appeal to the Church
of which he is a consistent member, to ao

"The desperate creatures about Ns borough
need not boast that Mr. Evans will get the vote
of the Methodist Church and he need nut make
any such calculation."
llere the "desperate creatures about this
borough," and the "Methodist Church," are so
connected, that one who did not know the con•

that the membership of the Methodist Church
was made up of the vilest persons that the
community could produce, and that Mr. Evans
and his brethren are a "set of political deeper.

or political parties, ned whose foul mouths are

thed slanderers, and then you are brought out
in battle array against Col. Wharton, because

it true, or is it false? And besides this, you
are charged with another heinous crime. "You
profess no much love for Mr. Evans and the
Methodist Church." Other denominations may
profess to love their brethren and love their
Church, but you must not dare to do no. It is
horrible and preposterous for you. "Try some.
thing else." Go for Cob Wharton and become
an •'limiest member of the Methodist and oili

Thus the editors of the American would ilic

clothed in sacerdotal robes, or crowned with
he to pe' Litres, that they should assume the
authority to dictate to churches? As editors
of a political party paper, they may control
their party, they can, but what tight have
hey to "speak to the churches." The members
or the Methodist church have intelligence
enough to take rare or themselves. If the ed•
toes of the American have not sense enough
to pet ceive this the church is nut account abl e
for that. The gentlemen have certainly placed
themselves in the position of the person spoken
of in the tenth chapter of John, and when they
undertake to dictate again to churches it would
be better for them to secure as well the proper
qualifications as the authority for so doing.
On Friday, the 18th inst., we hag the plea

which I purpose giving you. The celebration
was held in a beautiful grove on the farm of
Mr. Henry Boyer, about a quarter of a mils
from the village, and consisted of the pupils,
teachers and others connected with the Salem,
Marklesburg, Zion's Chords, Coffee Run, and
Branch Sabbathoehools. The scholats of all
the schools formed in procession on the green
surrounding the Methodist Church, and march
ed to the grove in beautiful orderglisplaying
several tastefully decorated banners, bearing
appropriate mottos. In the grove was erected
temporary cloud sad seats for the acconixo
dation and benefit of a large number of
spectators. The audience were than called to

works, representing a man sitting astride of a
mule on the extreme rear parties,, where the
caudal appendage is attached, and asking a
way worn foot passenger, "Why don't you get
on behind?' After disfranchising the great
majority of the people in Kansas, the sham

instrumentality of the ballotbox to redress

In the Senate, the kepublicans elected all

The Panic in the money market, in N.
York and Philndelphtn, is unprecedented.--
Failures among men of business occur every
day. A number of Banks in New York and
New Jersey have failed, nod sown in Pennsyl•
vania have suspended. Among the latter are
some which were considered the most substaun•
tial in the State. Stocks of nil kinds have W
ien 20, 10, and 50 per cent. Our friends should
be very careful in receiving any kind of paper
Se- There are plenty of young gentlemen as
well us old ones, whose beards are turning
gray, which gives the former n great deal of
uneasiness, and exposes the age of the latter.
To avoid these little perplexities.we advise such
of our readers to use Prof. Wood's Hair the.
storative, which will, in the course of is
few weeks, change the hair to its natural color.
It does not dye the hair like most of the hair
restoratives, hut produces a gradual change of
color front the roots of the hair to the final end
and gives it a fine and glossy appearance. We
have seen many persons who have used it sec:-
cm-fully, and pronounced it the only retardy
which has come up to their idea of a 'cure for
co to atnrrl acing tr ,t na,t

age and beauty, it has minim us ut least ten
years younger ; in feet we are beginning to ht!:
quite young, and feel very much like getting
young wile. The change is miraculous, and it
would be as difficult to find a gray hair !taw an
it would be to find an idea in the head of the
Duke of Buckingham. • We linane several old
tnaids and some young widows, whose locks
are just beginning to assume a silvery hue,
and who have been talking seriously about re.
sorting to this remedy, mid we advise them not
to delay any longer. It never Wis.—P. Lo uis
HURLEY'S SARSAPAI;I7LA,—For nil diseases
of the blood, nothing has yet been found to
compare with it. It clearses the syotem of all
impurities, nets gently and efficiently on the
ver and kidney+, strengthens the digestion, gives
tone Is the stomach, makes the skin clear and
healthy, and restores the constitution, enfeebled
by disense or broken down by the excesses of
youth, to its pristine vigor and strength. Every
prudent person should use a few bottles, parti
cularly during the spring and summer months.
