Editor and Proprietor. for the benefit of the chief Director, the Wednesday 31 enung March 17, 1858, accommodating Steward, and a leut collu ding metal:es. This is abundantly evi dent on the face of their own Report.— Here, what first takes our attention is ten or a dozen charges against the county, a mounting in the aggregate to nearly SEV ENTEEN HUNDRED DOLLARS—aII entered under the convenient name of "Sundries." More than a thousand dol lars of these mysterious charges are by L Glasgow l Now the tax-pay ers, the din who have to "foot the bill," would like to know what he tarnished for this large SUM. It Is not enough that the Directors should know what the county got from Mr. Glasgow for this money,— They are not competent vouchers for Mr. Glasgow's "sundries." They wanted to fleece the county and line their pockets, and needed his complicity. Sheep, wheat, clovetseed, Sec., were to be sold to the county by Kenzie L. Green,-the virtuous 'Chief of the board; and the accommoda ting Steward, in defiance of law purchased the Chief's commodities, and attempted to conceal the price from the public. W. L. Glasgow is just the man to expect an equi valent, and to claim a suitable return for such a favor; and the shrewd Kenzie, with an eye to future speculations would deal charitably with the slippery steward's "sundries." He would not scrutinize them very closely. This was not"• Ba ptist help Baptist," but steward help Ditec tors, Directors help Stewart ; Locofoco fa vor Straightouts and strnighout recom pense Locofoco—at thepublic expense.— We ask our readers to examine these "sun dries," and say whether they will again favor the election, or tolerate the appoint ment of these, or any other effite of the old I Whig and modern Locofoco parties to pla ces of trust and responsibility. IVe think not. We believe the people are beginning I to understand that class of politicians, and will henceforth guard the Interests of the county against their corrupt and corrupting influence. As for us, we are bound by our duty as a public Journalist, to denounce and oppose all mongrel ofce•seekers and dishonest office hol ers, their political sia• ers, abettors and sympathizers. "to the bet ter end." For the last two or three years these Jesuitical hybrids have been the scul lions of the Locofoco party. Under the assumed title of Americana they have dis graced America ; in the name of Freedom they have strangled Liberty ; and, wearing the cloak of religion, they have outraged every virtue. Though there are but few ' of them left in this county, there are e nough to perpetuate the misrule they have, in part, established ; and it therefore be hooves every good man and upright citi zen to wage against them, not a war of mere conquest, but of utter extermination. But to return to the subject in hand. Another proof of the corruption, or crim inal mismanagement of ;he poor officials• derived from their Report, is the enormoils cost of the institution under their control. According to the Herald's facts and figures each inmate—including children—costs two dollars a week ! Had this estimate been erroneous, Messrs. Green and Glas gow, both ready writers, would doubtless have promptly corrected it through the columns of tneir respective organs, the American and Globe. As three weeks have elapsed since the Herald'&charges ap peered, at the verb door of the accused, and nodenial or explanation has yet been at tempted it is just to think that guilt is for once ashamed and the truth admitted with out argument. Now, what do the honest, hard-working farmers of the county think of this rate of living ? Two dollars a week for feeding and clothing children and in firm persons who do very little labor! Far mers, we know that you enjoy all the ne cessaries, many of the conveniencies, and some of the luxuries of life. Your fami lies are comfortably clothed and bountifully fed on the most wholesome and nutritious food. Tell its how your family expenses compare with those at the poor house under its present management. There is a ten ant farmer. His family consists of ten or twelve persona. He gives one-half of all his crops to his landlord, and perhaps pays the taxes. How much would he have left to buy sundry clothes and pay for tuition and books for his family, if the boarding and every-day clothing of each one should cost a hundred or more dollars a year ? Do yon thistle such a farmer could "make both ends meet," as the saying is; or would he soon find himself "coming out at the little end of the horn ?" But the county is not a tenant. It owns the farm it devotee to the unfortunate poor. That farm cost $BOOO.OO. It in a good farm, reasonably well stocked, and ought to be, if it is not, in a good state of cultivation. It pays no dividend to a landlord and is free, we be- The Circulation of the Hun tingdon Journal, is great er than the Globe and Am erican combined. CLUBBING WITH MAGAZINES.

We wish to assure Mr. Jon ,s that all his elo quence is in vain whilst damning facts expose his true position in the campaign of 1856, and ever since Every man that remembers any thing about that campaign, remembers that the platforms of the Locofocoa and so called Americans were alike on the subject of Slavery. Every intelligent man knows that Mr. Fillmore and Mr. Buchanan oc cupied precisely the same position on that question, and were equally acceptable to the Slave interest. Though you may have sufficient impudence to deny this. we challenge you to the proof. Both were nominated in obedience to the South and Mr. Fillmore find the bad pre•emi nence of exclusive slavery support, and that of the most ultra chaMcter. The friends of freedom left the convention that nominated him, in disgust and spat upon their platform. And is it not a truth that protestant free-state delegates were thrown out of that convention because they were the friends of freedom, and Catholics ad mitted because they favored Fillmore and Slavery ? Yes, ruth that excites the scorn of an honest American as often as lie thinks of it; and whicu should cover with confusion rind condemns to silence every editor who endorsed the infamy, and who yet pretends to be an American and freeman ! We give the fact. Mr. Jones inn) draw the inference, and the reader apply it. But this is not all. Not only was Fill more nominated by a portion of a conven tion which ignored the vital principle of the American and Republican parties both; but his political acts, while Presi dent, and his letter of acceptance, and , public speeches afterwards, left no room to doubt his complete suhservency to the Slave power—that power that controls the government, before which Religion bow, with hushed lips, and which is fast crushing the spirit of Liberty in this land of its birth. No man in his senses if properly informed, could doubt Fillmore's position. Nor could the most bigoted partisan editor, if at all qualified for the office, doubt the position and integrity of the Republican candidate. The one had unconditionally crouched to the nod of a master; the other bore aloft the traveling banner of liberty. liven you, Mr. Jones, knew perfectly well that the election, of Fremont would be a triumph N. freedom. We will riot suppose you so stupid as not to know that the only possible chance of defeating Fremont and electing Bit chanan, was to support that arch traitor to liberty and the rights of free labor— /Wilford Fillmore. You did supiorl him, and together with a number of oth• er presses—all, from the Daily News down to the Huntingdon .anierican, paid for the crime—succeeded in striking down the dearest rights of your white fel low citizens—free territory, free labor and free speech—and condemning the fair soil of Kansas to the rule of tyrar ny, the dominion of man-stealers, the shame and curse of human bondage ! Th is yore did, or helped to do; and you are still striving to uphold the hypocritical faction of South Americans who have been bought in every free State, and paid their price, for strangling freedom in Its sanctuary— for doing the base and infamous work from which many a highwayman would recoil with disgust and loathing ! And, yet, you profess to be an American and a friend of freedom ! if you have us much sense of shame a, an oyster has of editing a newßimper, we wooln ad you to bleu f and then move South and serve your masters by grooming their ne green. We have more to say at another time. THE POOR HOUSE OFFICIALS. The unavoidable delay of our notice of these worthies, has enabled us to examine the subject of their malfeasance more close !y, and to fully satisfy ourself that the Her ald's recent strictures are just and merited. The county is, indeed. being heavily taxed tieve, of taxes, and ev ry other incum brance. And, yet, the subsistence of the poor family on this public farm, costs the owners twice, if not three tiinas as much per individual as the family on that tenant farm, or any farm in the saws neighborhood Farmers of Huntingdon county. how is this? Is there not some mystery about this ? Something rotten in Denmark ? We leave you to ponder the subject, pro mising to o'l your attention, hereafter, to the "pipe-laying," pill-administering, and other items of the poor-house account. Various members and movers of the recent Harrisburg Gitiventien in New York are getting their rewords in the shape of contratts for the Mormon a•;tr and valuable offices. Popular sovereign• ty pays well. The Departments and members of Congress are crowded with Pennsylvania applications for furnishing mules, wagons and other outfits for the military expedition. These fortunate men will yet be immortalized in pint to verify their disinterested patriotism. Advertising and Job Work. We would remind the Advertising coin• munity and all others who wish to bring their business extensively before the pub lic, that the Journal has the largest cir culation of any paper in the county—that it 'is 0 - instantly increasing;—and that it goes into the hands of our wealthiest citi zens. We would also state that our facilities for executing all kinds of 3013 PRINT ING are equal to those of any other office in the county; and all Job Work entrus ed to our hands will be done neatly promptly, and at prices which will be satisfactory. Mir In our last issue we mated that the Messrs. Fisher t 3lcMurtrie would re move to their new location about the first of April. We now make a correction and state that they have already opened out in the Store room recently occupied by the Mes srs. Saxon, where they will be pleased to sell goods on the most liberal terms.

Walker, Stanton, George Ben• croft and others of similar reputation op pose the Administration, if it is not for wrong and outrage ? The belief of the people in the infallibility of the “demo erotic" party is rapidly passing away, and should it persevere in Its present course, it will soon be but a name without substance. "The king coo do no wrong," is the max im of despotism, and we see in the above how nearly the slaves of a party can op• proach the abjectness of those of a tyrant. A revolution is at hand which will set to another tune the whine of adulation that now distinguishes the organs of the Ad ministration. Hark I from the Tomb a Doleful Sound Prooeetin." Col- Forney, in yesterday's i'ress, opens his battery upon the Harrisburg Deinocru tic Convention, with this retnarkabl. , style; "The darkest chapter in the history of the Democracy of Penney!yenta, has just been written." So dark, indeed, that Ethiop would pale before it, and might be seen as one eternal day. He further declares, that "the Conven tion was a mockery upon public opiniut, so far as its Kansas action was concerned, and its declarations on this subject at the hands of the people."

Lane has well said,) 'to get off the Cincinnati Platform and take his stand on the Cincinnati Directory'—and thus at once blasted the hopes of his own party and rendered effort on our side supertbe no. Promptly, but vainly, the Democratic State Committee and the leading journals of that party repudiated the Lecomptou fraud and took their stand by the aide of Douglas; the People would be satisfied with nothing less than an emphatic and unequivocal nondemna lion of the policy which had cursed Kansas with Slavery and all who had boon its abettors The Republicans have carried the State by Five Thousand majority, electing Governor, Council (all five Districts,) Senate (three. fourths.) and House (more than two to one,) so as to render certain the choice as United 'States Senator of John P.

Kansas If there be any man out of office, or not hoping for office under Buchanan, who really believes the admission of Kansas under the Lecompton Constitution a wise, just or paci fying measure, we wish to ask that man just this question: Sir, suppose Slavery had nothing to do with this business, and Politics wore not at all mix ed op with it, and that it was si.nply a strife between two lo,al factions, one of which char ged upon the other the frauds, the forgeries, foul voting and false returns, now charged by the Free State on the Pro Slavery men, and there had been two several submissions of the proposed Constitution, at ono of which it was eaimed to have been adopted by Six Thousand majority, and at the other rejected by Ten Thousand—with all manner of char ges .d legally established proofs of whole• sale and systematic frauds is the former case, and, if you please, in the latter also—would you then flunk it wise or well to admit the State under that Constitution? Would you consider that the way to end the strife and tranquilize the nation ? Would you not rath er say, Let us have a ne•v Convention or a fresh Submission, under auspices which shall Ido justice to all' parties, and. so determine what is hilly the will of the People of Kansas, t and admit her in accordance therewith ? Who says No ? Candid render I all we ask is that Slavery and Anti Slavery, lids party and that, shall be forgotten, and the Admission of Kansas effected in accordance with the wishes of her People, and not otherwise.

Yar I', ~ L, Utah we have important intelli gence down to January 25, by way of council Bluffs.

We have rarely, if ever, witnessed an oc casion that cast so deep a gloom over the minds of a very large concourse of people, as the death of our lamented friend. But we sorrow not as those who have no hope, for we have much encouragement to believe that our loss is his eternal gain. F. UNDETECTABLE WIGS AND TOUPEES I N spite of the washes and nostrums which are puffed upon a credulous public, bald ness, especially in this country, appears to be one of the evils which flesh is' heir to. When this unfortunate occurrence takes place, the only thing to be done is to remedy it by some artificial contrivance, which shall resemble nature as closely as possible. The most nat ural and elegant coverings for the head that we have ever seen are the wigs and toupees manufactured by Mr. George Thurgland, No. 29 South Sixth street. The hair is fastened to a net of such fine ttoctare that the natural skin is visible through it and consegnently the artifice cannot be detected. We advise our readers who are in want of any such ar ticles to examine these, and we feel certain that they will be pleased with them. Lungs AND GENTLEMEN:—We would call your attention to the advertisement of Prof. 0. J. Wood's Hair Restorative, which appears in the columns of our present number. From our long acquaintance with the propri etor, and with numerous individuals who have used his preparation with perfect success for the last two years, we feel no hesitation is re. commending the article as superior to any of the preparations now in use for the some pm , pear, viz for restoring gray hair to its original color, a sure and perfect cure for baldness, and • never.failing preventive for the falling of the hair. It is decidedly the best and most popular in use for beautifying, preserving, restoring and strengthening the hair, relieving diseases of the skin, and removing seurff, dandruff; and all eruptions and feverish heat from the scalp. We speak in relation to the above from what we know, having been personally acquainted with numerous persons who have used the re. atonalvo fur the above purposes, with the most gratifying results. It is not often we notice a patent medicine. Indeed, we think we have never puffed one before ; but Prof. Wood's Hair Restorative is something so superior to most of the preparations of the day, that we cannot, for bear asking the attention of our readers to it.— Catholic Vindicator.
