WV. BREWSTER.
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-

In his last issue, the sty editor of the
Janus-faced, eight-by•ten squirms and
wriggles, and attempts to be severe, wit
ty and profound, all in one breath, in re
plying to an article which appeared in
the Journal of the previous week. 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

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

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

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,

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

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.

Messrs. Fisher t 3lcMurtrie would re

A SUSPECTED PARAMOUR bitilthEßED.—The

informed that a murder was committed at Lyt•

induced them to return sooner than they expec

thought of their disgrace. they till upon him

One of the buys is about ten and the other fir

desperate deed, they made their escape, one ta

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.

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.

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

that they will be pleased with them.

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.—
