THE HUNTINGDON CO• POOR HOUSE.
"Something Rotten in Denmark:,
Besides the articles we have copied
from the 'Shirleysburg Herald,' we have
received communications from most res
pectable and reliable citizens of Shirley
towii,hip, which luny endorse the state•
ments, and corroborate the charges of the
Herald, and its correspondent. We have
only apace. this week, to call attention to
those startling developements. But we
promise to lay bare the whole system of
extravagance and corruption practised by
the officials of the Poorhouse on the un
suspecting tax-payers of the county.—
That the public purse has been robbed, is
painfully evident ; not, we think, through
sectarian favoritism ; but through the in•
fluency and intrigue of masked Locofocns
and their treacherous straightout allies,
who have stolen the "livery of heaven to
serve the devil in," and who disgrace the
respecable religious denominattous' whose
name they bear. We will endeavor to set
the matter in its true light next week.
For the Journal.
Ma. EDITOR the article entitled
"Christianity, versus Slavery," in the last
Journal, the writer seems saddened by the
fact that while prayers are offered, ser
urns prached and much money expended
in almost fruitless efforts to convert hea
then traders in human souls ; in China, no
effort whatever is made to convert the
worse than heathen traders in human souls
in our own country ! And he seems at a
lass to account for this inconsistency, as
he is pleased to call it "Why, " he asks,
should the theme of child selling in China
relax our purse strings, quicken our piety
and even give a -peculiar zest to onr reli
gious revivals, while no attention is ever
made to a much more extensive traffic of
the same kind in these free enlightened,
Christian United States of America ? Is

has anything to do with the question. It
is a notorious foot that many of the chil
dren, aye, and their mothers too, sold from
time to time, in the sunny latitudes of this
glorious Republic, are as white as the con
gregations vyho may not pray for their de.
liverance ; much fairer than the Chinese
favorites. Besides, there is a period in
our history when the merchantable portion
of our population was much darker skinned
than now, darker than the Chinese ; and
yet, at that very period the good John
Wesley pronounced the traffic in slaves,
"the sum of all villainies." For a centu
ry and a half alter cupiesty had introduced
this traffic to out shores, and before lice°•
ciousnees had bleached the unfortunate
subjects of it; when every min woman
and child sold at auction, was jetty black;
oven then the good and great of the land
denounced the trade as strongly as did the
noble Wesley ; and ministers preached
and Christians prayed throughout the
length and breadth of the Colonies, for
its speedy suppression. These historical
facts clearly prove that whatever else stay
have closed the pores of Christian sym
pathy against the poor Negro in these
states, it cannot be his complexion. ' But
as lam not a subscriber to your paper, I
will not, at present. claim more space in

Every effort to divide the great anti-sla

ly to be regretted. But it seems the Hol

assassins stab at f reedom, is covertly and
assiduously endeavoring to advance Sla
very prepogandism in the north ; why
don't the Register take off the mask, and
fight us no longer from an ambush. if he
is a friend to freedom and right, why at

deavoring to strengthen the people against
tyrany, why attempt to throw a fire-brand

The Convention that met at Harrisburg
on the 22d ult., for consultation and inter
change of sentiment, was composed of
gentlemen pf all parties, opposed to the
Lecompton iniquity. And who by an al
most unanimous vote continued Ihe pres
ent State Committee which was framed in
1856. Of which Lemuel Todd, well
known as an American. is chainnan, The
whole Committee constituted by Ameri
cans and Republicans. The Convention
also gave them power to call a Convention
not earlier than July next; thus delega
ting to them this ample power.
Now this don't look much like a con
vention of exclusive. Republicans, as the
Register would have his refiners believe
that all Americans were excluded. The
honest intention of this Convention was
to take means at the proper time to op
pose tyranny and the tenets of Slavery
about to be fastened upon the people by
the ['resident o the United States, and
the slaveocracy. It may be presumed
that none of the side door party who have
brought about these terrible results, were
not in the Convention.

GREATEST MEDICAL DISCOVERY
EVER KNOWN TO MAN!
PA lilt' LINDSEY has discovered a remedy that
will cure all diseases arising from impure
blood, which is the foundation of all diseases.
I will warrant it to cure all the withinmained
diseases, such as
Chronic Scrofula, Honors oldie Skin, Tumors,
Ulcers on the Head or Body, and all
And it will also core all Indolent Ulcers of
many years standing ; Sore Mouth, caused from
using mercury, and will eradicate mercury,
from the system. When the IMPROVED
BLOOD SEARCHER operates on mercury,
all other impurities of the blood will be swept
from the system, and it purifies the blood as
pure as vegetable moHeine.can make it; and
when the blood is pore, the man woman or
child, will take no disease, for the impure blood
which is the cause of disease, is gone. It will
also cure all Debilitated Diseases, such as
drive from a derangement of the liver; it will
bring the liver into a healthy action, and will
restore the patient to health.

OR LIVER REMEDY
mins 6 one of the greatest medical dice over

almost ton great to believe. It mires as if ma

and seldom more than one bottle is required to
cure any kind of tlvan Complaint. from O.
worst Jaundice or Dyspepsia to a common head.
ache, all of which are the result of a niestais.
The Liver Is one of the principal moister*
of the human hotly, and when it performs Its
functions well, the powers of the system are ful
ly developed. The stomach is almost entirely
dependent on the healthy action of the Liyet
for the proper performance of it! functions.—
' When the stomach is at limit, the bowels ere all
fault, and the whole system suffers in conse
quence of one ormsn—the Liver—haeing ceased
to do its duty. For the diseases of that orgas
()mot the proprietors has made it his study. in
practice of more than twenty years, to find
some remedy wherewith to counteract the many
derangemen,ts to which it is liable.
To prove that this remedy is at last found,
any person troubled with Liver Complaint in
any of its forms, has hut to try a bottle, ant
conviction is certain.
A compound has been formed by dissolving.
gums. and extracting that part %vide!' is soluble
for the active virtues of the medicine. These
gums remove all morbid or bud matter from the
system, supplying in their place a heal by flow
of bile, invigorating the stomach, causing food to
digest well, purifying the blood, giving tone and
health to the whole machinery, removing the
causes of the disease, and effecting a radical
cure without any of the disagreeable after ef
fects, felt by using Calomel or Mineral Poison,
that me usually resorted to.
To nil who will follow these directions a ears

be cured by the use of two tea-spoonsful take*
as soon as the attack is felt.
The Invigorator never fails to cure sour sto
mach or the bad effeeta experienced after eat-
Bilious attacks yield readily to one bottle, end,
Chronic Diarthant, difficult, as it is to cure, is
never troublesome to those who take the Invigo-'
Break•unta on, the Fts..c;.
For Dysyepsia or Jaundice, nothing in the
known world acts so folly or cures so quickly as
the Invigorator. It removes all yellowness and
unnatural color from the skin.
For Night More, take a dose before retiring,
and it is warranted a sine preventative.
For Female Obstructions it is a safe and sir*
remedy, as it rem Jves the cause of the disease,
Costiveness cannot exist where the Inviers ,
for is freely taken, while Cholic yields readily I.
It must be known that all these are Leval
diseases, or came by a deranged Linn. and to
cure them needs a LINTER medicine and one of,
great power. The Invigorator is such a medi
cine ; it has medicinal powers. never before
covered, that will cure all diseases of the Liven
no matter of how long standing. or what may

tracted from the gums used is such as to be as
tonishing to all who see their etfocu, for none
can use the medicine without receiving benefit
It nets as a gentle Carthartic, and should always
