Gen. Wm. H. Koontz.
A great effort is being made by the Border
Ruffian Laeofoces of this district to defeat our
candidate for Senator. We hope our American
Republican &Muds will not be deceWed by our
wily foe. Our candiante Gen. Koontz, is a
man, every inch of him, and such a man as the
people delight to honor. From his infancy be
has had to combat single handed with the world
and by a life of sober, untiring perseverance
and industry he h., step by step, won for him
self a position which is indeed a noble one, He '
does not stand before the people as the candi
date of the monied interest, or of speculators,
as does his opponent Schell. He will be the
presentative of the whole people, not of a fat.
Lion or clique, GO. Koontz's election is a cer
tainty, it is unavoidable. Somerset, his native
county, will, at the lowest calculation, give him
700 majority. Bedford will increase this to
1000, and old Huntingdon will, we feel assurrd
from indications, increase it to 1500. This, we
are satisfied, will be the result of the contest
for Smut. in this district. The majority fur
Oen. Koontz may reach 1000, but cannot, we
are very certain, be less than 1500.

man among them who does not fully understand
A. W. Evans' Affidavit. • that there is no chance of his election, unless
through the means adopted by the Locofocos
'Wharton a Locofoco Tool. in Philadelphia, last WI. The policy 110 W
agreed upon by the more knowing ones aiming
them, appears to ho simply this: to use his
nomination to secure the election of Haute
nod the defeat of Evans. We suppose we may
safely assume, that with two-thirds of 'Whar
ton's adherents fit least, the election of Houtz
would be prctertibfe to the election of Evans.
Practically, too, the contest in our opinion, as
well as many others, is between Evans and
Houtz. With this true state of affairs before
the voters of Huntingdon eounty, bow can any
consistent American Republican support Col.
Wharton, or how can any voter be so blind as
not to petecive that by voting for him he but
throws away his vote. It has been well said
I that none of us know
"To what base uses we may come at last!'
But will the holiest opponents of Leedom
ism in Hunting.' county know/t/0 submit
to the schemes of political desperadoes to im
pose upon them? Will they after the repeated
warnings we have given them, quietly suffer
themselves to become the dupes of political
pirate's and speculators? If there is any of
that pure republican blood left in the veins of
our fellow-citizens, we feel confident they will
repudiate the candidates thrust upon them by
illegal and outrageous means, and support in
Levi Evans, an honest man and uncompromi
sing enemy to fraud.
That the nomiliation of Wharton .d Metz
was a deep and well-planned scheme on the
part of certain Locofoco speculators c and un
principled political desperadoes inthis botonyli,
to secure the election of tools with which they
could work through the Legislature, upon the
Treasury of our Commonwealth, and defraud
the pecple, cannot be doubted. The fads are
too evident. It has been proven, by the state
ment of the President of the Convention which
nominated Wharton, that his nomination was
the result of Lueoffico intrigue, and that he had
, pledged himself to support the plundering
schemes of certain Locofoco speculators in this
I borough, in consideration thereof. So likewise
is it proven that the nomination of Houtz was
a mean Locofoco plan to secure the certain
election of au individual who would be 'Tatty"
in the hands of these speculators. For, has it
net been satisfactorily proven that Dr. Houtz
was brought out, us "their weakest man," to
give a clear field to his opponent. These are
facts, us no one will deny with the evidence be
fore hint under the signature of the President
uf the Convention to which Mr. Wharton owes
his nomination. Mr. Wharton and Mr. Houtz
stand opou precisely the sante platform. They
enee of men and money of the Pennsylvania
Railroad Company. To prove ihk, we have
'out to refer to Pol. Wharton's own testimony.
Ho acknowledges that he was in letirue with
certain Locofoco leaders iu this town, that he
had pledged himself to carry out their vie‘vC if
elected, and in consideration of which be was
to hove the weakest manila the Democratic par
ty fin his opponent. But in the nomination of
Dr. Ikutz, we have another example of the
foxlike cunning of John P. Should Col. Whar

The Methodists Again.
The Huntingdon "American." and Wharton
and his other tools, are now electioneering ex
clusively on the METHODIST QUESTION
They first assert that Mr. Evans belongs to that
church denominated the Methodist, which they
say is made up of
"Desperate Creatures 1"
They are base fabricators. Whilst we ac
knowledge that Levi Evans, bf the certificate
of his pastor, which will be found in another
column, is "a coitsistent member and an efficient
Steward of the Jfethodist Church," we deny,
and defy the malicious slanderers to prove that
"THE METHODIST CHURCH IS MADE
UP OF DESIIERATE CREATURES I"
It pains us to be compelled to dwell on this
subject at this tone. Aeligion should remain
free frotn a contaminating connexion with poli
tics, but when we see opposition to the doctrines
of any religious denomination we reverence,
and snore especially when we see opposition to
the Methodist faith made the basis of political
popularity and success, and when we hear it
proclaimed by %public print, and on the cor
, tiers of our streets by a candidate for office,
that a man is unlit for office because he is a
melriber of the Methodist Church, we think we
have a rig'it to say something ; at least to as
Methodism is not a Crime.
Fellow-Citizens, of old Huntingdon County,
we are now making our last appeal to you. Do
not, for the sake of the charnel', of our good
old native county, onpose Mr. Evans on the is
sue set up by the organ of Col. Wharton—be
cause ho is a Methodist! is there (now as men
of reason and intelligence answer us candidly)
anything in the faith of old John Wesley to t ic .
Here which is criminal 1 Is no; this particu
lar church at the prciient day, as at all former
times, one of the firmest pillars of Christianity?
Has it not had its martyrs, who died for its sa
cred faith ? Has it not opposed the black
wens Iffiat back ti blo,Aly c6liLrts
or ovor,oon the powers of supersli-
lion and error, and carried the blest light of the
°mail into the darkest regions of heathendom?
What then is there, in the name of common
sense, in Methodism, to merit your disapproba-
tion ? Why should the fact that Mr. Evans is
a Methodist cause you to oppose hint Will.
`you oppose him
Because he is a Methodist 7
If you'd°, ho is glad to have your opposition.
Whilst he honors and esteems those who may
oppose him on other grounds. ho has nothing,
but pity for the base-born idiots who oppose

The Slanderers Defeated,
READ THE ENDORSAL.
The editors of the Huntingdon "American," I
their masters and lenders, after vainly striving
to injure Mr. Evans' prospects by representing
him ns a member of the Methodist Church I
and after finding all such oitempts to meet with
no success, adopt new tactics and in their last
issue use the most indecent and slanderous
epithets againsthim, calling him a "drunkard,"
"gambler," mid other names which decency
will not allow us to insert here. It is a well
known fact, that these matures havens regard
whatever for the truth, and having grown des
perate over the inevitable. defeat which stares
Wharton in the face, have determined: on a
bold game of lying to defeat Mr. Evans. We

Fellow-Citizens, we have but one inure word
to address to you ; ere another week shall pass ,
you will be called upon to exercise one of the
highest privileges we as American citizens can
boast of. It becomes you, ns men knowing the
immense importance of a proper discharge of
the right of suffrage, to consider, calmly tied !
dispassionately, the issues involved, and the

ation, Samuel Wharton and Daniel Houtz, the
speculators' candidates. The platforms of these
gentlemen are to be the rules whereby you are
to judge whether Or no they are worthy your
support. In regard to Wharton and Houtz
(we name them together, because their princi
ples tire the same) there can be no doubt flo to
I their positive favorable inclinations towards the
removal of the three mill tax from the Penn
sylvania Railroad Company, the appropriation
of three millions of dollars to the Sunbury A
Erie Railroad, &c., whilst Mr. Evans opposes
these odious measures "first, last and all the
time." This being the case, let us examine
these issues. The three mill to., is, at the pre.
sent time n !tourer) of revenue to the Common
wealth, annually throwing into our Trearury
. some three hundred thonsand •dollars, until ns
r the business of the road increases, as it has Isom
year to year, will in less thou three years reach
L half a million of dell'•+. This tax was placed
, upon the Company by the State, partly in con
; lAA) et stfirth
and wholesome reasons. The removal of this
tax, therefore, it must lie evident to every man'
of common sense, would not only he a high
handed and outrageous wrong inflicted on the
State at large, but an every individual citizen
within her borders. Let us illustrate. The
expenses of the government has far many years
exceeded the receipts by a considerable amount.
This has been the ease with the revenue arising
from the three mill tax still pouring into - our
Treasury, and if this is so, what will be the re
sult should the tax he removed. The expen•
sex of government will have to be met, and
• how and where we ask, is this deficit of three
hundred thousand dollars to he madoup? There
is but one way, i. e. by increased taxation. This
must be evident to every thinking man. Col.
Samuel S. Wharton has pledged himself to sup
port an enactment releasing the Company from
the payment of this tax, and Dr. Houtz occu
pies the precise position. file. bowls has pledg
ed his word and honor as a Christian gentle•
man that he will oppose these measures with
all his ability, end at alttimes discountenance
every attempt to increase the heavy load din:c
ation which hangs over us. The appropriation
of three millions of dollars to the Sunbury &
Erie Railroad, is another Of the issues which
is presented in the present contest. This is
I so nearly allied to the removal of the three mill
tax that he who favors the ono embraces the
other. This scheme would plunge us still deep
er in debt and as a matter of course increase

TO MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS,
pOCTOU BRAGG'S VIRGIN PILLS.
The essential ingredient of this valuable rem
edy is not new, but is well known in tho medi
cal schools of Franco and Gormmy, and has
been employed by she females of this principal
courts of burupe, and by all of the most distin
guished physicians in this speciality for the last
ten years. My motive is not to offer any pat
ent discovery, but simply, to present to the
mothers and daughters of our own land a simple
but sure remedy for those diseases to which
they nro naturall y subjected, in such a form as
should obviate the necessity of those medic,'
consultations, which are justly looked upon by
women as a violation of their most sacred feel
ings, and to avoid which they often risk the
most fearful consequences. _
I have therefore 'prepared this spenitle in tho
neat and simple form of it pill, and put it up in
small fiat boxes, which can ho safely sent any
distance by mail in a common envelope. Each
box is accompanied with full directions and ex
planations, enabling every woman to understand
her own case and the proper treatment and the
'the Virgin Pills possesses such powerful,
penetrating properties, that none of the diseases
within the range of their action can withstand
or evade them. They cleanse, purify and in
vigorate every portion of the female organism,
correcting its diseased action, and restoring its
healthy functions. They effect a certain curd
for falling of the womb, whites, painful, sup
preseed and irregular menstruation, diseases of
pregnancy, all nervous complaints caused by
disordered uterine organs weakness,&c., the
symptoms of which ore fully explainein the di.
For any of the diseases of tho reproductive
organs, .they may be taken at all times, except
ing during Wm earlier stages of pregnancy
when their °fleet would be such as to produce
miscarriages, which fact is more fully explain
ed in the directions. Their action in the system
will be felt immediately and the flush of rosy
beauty, the trttu telex or health, quickly rising
in the cheek of puler, will at once convince
the patient of these e ff ects..
Yi•iru $1 par box, and will ho pent, pest-paid
by return mail to any part of the United States
ou receipt or the money. The money may bo
seat by mail, at the rink of the subscriber.
