This was, in many respects, the most
important Nominating Convention held in
this county for some years; and it is conce
ded to have been one of the most intelli
, gent, prudent, independent, and honest po
litical bodies ever associated in the county.
It was just such a convention as we expec
ted from the solid yeomanry and warking
men of Old Huntingdon; it was composed
, of just such men as the crisis to our local
polltice demanded. The proceedings were
harinsneoua and dignified; and out of a
number of highly respectable candidates
put in nomination for the several offices
by their respective friends, there was no
difficulty in forming a good ticket. Such
a ticket has been presented to the Peoples
party for their suffrsges; a ticket entirely
' disconnected with any past or present fac
tion either in town or country; a ticket that
will receive the undivided, cordial appro
bation and support of all candid opponents
of Locofoco misrule and extravigance.—
A very few extra Republicans may. per
haps, ruurmer a little because three•fourths
of the candidates put in nomination hereto.
fore acted with the American wing of the
I united party. But these few, if there be
such, will be reconciled by the reflection,
that names are as nothing when principles
and interests are identical. If, then, the
nominees are sincerely opposed to the
slave labor, free-trade policy of the Locofo
cos and unreservedly in favor of a sound
American policy— if they are above suspi
cion on these vital ; oints—no true Repub
lican will refuse his vote or influence to se
cure their election. All a Republican re.
qnires in a candidate, is integrity to these
cordial principles of his political faith, nail
respectabl. business and moral fitness for
the office. Honesty and capacity being se
cured. he cares nothing for by-gone names
and mere party distinctions. No iotelli
gent man will pretend to douflt the position
of the People. ticket on these questions;
no reasonable man can take exceptions to
the capacity or character of the nominees;
therefore we guarantee nn undivided Re
publican support for the ticket, though
principally composed of Americans. •
-But, on the other hand, it is rumored
that some drnericans are dissatisfied be
cause the Republicans are represented at
all on the county ticket ! This rumor we ' ,
consider unreasonable, absurd, and a clan-,
der on the Americans. We do not believe
it, We know, indeed, that in the guise
of Americanism, unprincipled men, here
the enemy at every elecfon . . These - are
of the lowest order of Locofocos, the scav
engers who do the dirtiest work of the par
ty Jar a consideration. There are now
precious few of these Judases in the glori
ous American camp, and these few are de
prived of their leader. We care little for
their opposition. We never counted on
their support. They hove no principles
or feelings in {lemony with the paaintic
masses that compose the People's party.
They are wool-dyed, or ruts-bought Loco
locos, every one of tnem. Their instincts
are selfish, sordid, and render them Inca
pable of any other political connection than
that in which they are found. Here we
are willing inlet them remain. For eve•
ry vote their Jesuitism can seduce from
public interest and the right, five honest
Democrats will shake off the shackles of a
once noble, but now corrupt and degraded
organization; and rally to the rescue of the
people from the fangs of the politician.—
In every aspect of the case our ticket must 1
be elected.
The people have done their duty well
at the primary election, the convention has
nobly done its duty, and the whole work
will be ratified on the second Tuesday of
October by such a majoritp as will make
the servitors of Slavery and Popery “trem•
ble in their boots." An extended notice
of our candidates will be found in another

JOHN FLENNER, who is our nominee fur
County Commissioner, who lives in Heti

fil the duties of the office tor the following

man ; second, he is and always was an in-
telligent business roan; third, He is a
goad financier in conducting his own busi•

a man ; and he is entitled to the vote of
every American Republican in the coun
ty fur the following reasons, as well as
those which we have just stated: first, he
has always been identified with the inter
ests of opposition to Locofocoism : second,
he is a sound American Rupublicar. ; third,
two yearn ago he was the regular nominee
of the American party for the same office,
but was sacrificed to the intorests of the
party, to which he submitted without a
a murmur. Surely, then, no objection is
made to bim.
David Clarkson. Esq., of Cassville, our
candidate for Poor Diroctor, is equally ho

The same may be said of William. K.

In the selection of Thomas V. Grffius,

Pittsburg Journal of Saturday has the fol.
lowing particulars of an unfortunate affair.
Mr. Robert McC urdy, an old and well
known citizen, resident on Carpenter's al
ley, on the east side of the Trinity church
grounds, was married yesterday afternoon
to a young lady of some 23 or 24 years of
age. This disparity in the ages of the
cople excited remark amoung the neigh-
Fors, who expressed their feelings with
out reserve, at what they considered an
unnatural union. It seems that the boys
fully sympathised with the feelings of the
older people. In the evening a number
of them, perhaps fifteen or twenty, gash
' ered about Mr. Men] rdy's residence, and
commenced pelting the house with brick
bats and stones, some of which were thrown
through the windoweand doors. Mr. Mc-
Curdy went out and remonstrated with
them ' warning them to go away, but they
paid no attention to him. The company
present were much alarmed, fearing per
! gond injury from the mob without. Mr.

Cincinnati Gazette from Winchester, Tnd.
that a half a mile north west of that place
there is an old fort, including about thirty
six ncrei of ground within the fortification
The mound in the centre is about twenty
five feet high, while the fort or breastwork
is only abcut fifteen feet. Directly east
and west atilt. mounds are open or gate
ways, around which are other forts. A
quarter of a mile northwest of the fort is
the burying ground, where bones have
been exhumed of men that were perhaps
ten feet tall. Any one who doubts the
