German Reformed Church will meet in
this place on next Friday evening. The
opening sermon will be preached by the
Rev. Mr. Apple. Services will commence

lir The May number of Kennedy's
Bank Note Detector, published in Pittsburg
by 3. W. Kennedy, at $1 per annum, has
been received. 'Phis is one of our most
reliable Detectots, giving the latent account
of new counterfeits, and the way io detect
them. The present number is an excel.

irr Rev. 0.0. MCClean late pastor of
the Presbyterian Congregation of this
place, preached his farewell sermon on
Sabbath evening last, to an immense au

He Mu received a call from the I.t Pres

intends removing in a few weeks.
" Our House," the significant ti
tle of Col. Summers' news emporium and
confectionary, on Montgomery street, near
the Post Office, is one of the popular in•
sututions of our town. Col. Summers is
a gentleman thoroughly acquainted with
his business, and it affords us much pleas
ure to see him prosper as he does. He
has always on hand all the leading Peri
odicals and Magazines published in this
country, and you can be accommodated
with the latest New York, Philadelphia
and other city daily and weekly papers.
He has also a fine stock of tropical fruit,
and indeed almost a little of every thing.
se_Col. Forney has selected J. K. 011.

of Jefferson county, as two of his associates

ular nominations. When Col. Forney
was nominated fer United States Senator,
in 1857, Messrs. Calhoun and Nicholson
wives, and both bolted from his nomina

from Forney, and now the, all three bolt

this admirable work, we have every reason
to believe, will be ready for delivery to sub.

truncsaiina, •definitions, and synonymes,
great improvements have ':eett made on

I.llr The Election held in Philsdelphia
on Monday the 2nd inst. for municipal of
ficers Tesulted , as was anticipated, in the
success of the People's ticket. Owing to
the fact that there was a general conviction
among the Opposition that their candidater
would certainly triumph, the vote polled
on that side was an unusually light one.—
For this reason, the majorities in some of
the wards are not quite up to thir former
standard; but, even with this drawback,
the victory is a very decided me.
Mr. Benjamin H. Brown has been cho
sen City Treasurer by 2000 majority, and
Mr. Charles M. Neal's majority as City
Commissioner exceeds that number.
They have likewise elected seven mem
bers of the Select Council, and fifty-four
members of the Coninion Council, which,
of course, gives us the control of both bo

The following list of ' , Facts for the
People," we extract from the Sentinel, a
democratic papevpublished ut Harrisburg.
If democrats will not believe the Repub
lican party. when they make charges a
gainst the "favorite son, perhaps they will
put more confidence in the testimony of
their own friends, who are now occupying
the witness stand.
That James Buchanan has shown by
his acts that he is a bitter and arbitrary
Federalist, wanting only the power to be
come a despot.
That he Is cowardly, revengeful, tyran
nical, sectional, and unjust.
That through cowardice, he has made
terms with the pro•slavery disunionists of
the South, whom he permits to oppose such
measures of his Administration as they
dislike, with impunity, while he ostracises
or beheads, as the case may be, every
Northern Democrat who dares to dissent.
That ho has agreed with the extreme
slavery men of the South to support sla-
very in the territories with the'money and
military power of the nation, if need be,
making a distinction, contrary to the con
stitution, the law, and justice, in favor of
that species of property.
That he corrupted Congress, and comp-
tied qui! treasury on vile favorites and
in pursuit of mad slhemes .
That every department of the Govern.
anent tacitly acquiesces in corruption.
That he has dared to propose piratical
measures to the American Congress—the
seizure by force of two provinces of Mexi
co, without previous notice nr declaration
of war.
That his scheme for the acquisition of
Cuba is dangerous and dishonorable; tn.
yoking, whether by corruption, war, or
piracy, a probable expense of $30,000,-
000, and this for the mere privilege of
governing, at a heavy expense, without
owing a single foot of the island.
hat ho has been unwise, extracts gant
and unsuccessful in nearly every measure
of his Administration; and that ever✓ prop
osition which he has made for the purpose
of investing himself with extraordinary
powers in pretended emergencies, has
been NEG.ATIPED by a DEMO•
CR.LITIC CONGRESS, because they
had no CONFIDENCE in his PRO
That the whole tendency of his Ad.
ministration is to to centralization of power
in the Federal Government.
That he encourages his officeholders
to interfere improperly in S TATE POL.
ta, oy sne expenatture of time . ant
money. for the purpose of influencing the
deliberations of State Conventions, and
the results of elections.
Keeping all these in mind, remember
that therefore,
Ile is a violator of pledges, an u nwisv,
unsafe, and corrupt executive a pro-slavery
disunionist, a pirtte in intention, a tyrant
an apostate from Democracy, a wool-dyed
Federalist, and a disorganizer !
We learn from Southern exchanges
that there are active movements going on
in Alabama and Mississippi, looking to a
sece , sion from the Union. Of course it
is countenanced by all the journals of the
fire eating" stripe. The Mobile Mercu
Ty advocates n distinctive southern poliit
ice I organization, and says:
, The times are now ripe for the organi
zation of a political movement in the slave
holding States, irrespective, of course, of
all old party designations; and there are
peculiar reasons why such a movement
should be undertaken now and here. In
deed, we are credibly informed that collier
ences hove already been held by leading
patriotic gentlemen in this city, of all par
ties, and the plans of a Southern organize.
tion have been set on foot, and almost inn.
tured, preparatory to action. We earnest.
ty hope the 'good work may go on, and
speedily. The country, we repeat, is ripe
for the movement; and, if judiciously in•
augurated, it will sweep over the land with
a force that no opposition will be able to
check. We, therefore, caution our friends
in the country, everywhere, to be prepa.
red for it, and to keep themselves free
from all entangling alliances which may
hinder them from joining in it untrammel
'Phis movement is evidently a disunion
one, and is confined to the more ultra por
tion t f the Southern papers and people,
who ~ .nnually blow off a large amount of
gas. It relieves them, does no damage
except to the .'peculiar institution," and
amuses us of t he North. The Tennessee
Enquirer, edited by a cool headed and
eenaible man, says that it "does not sub
scribe to the diSunion doctrine, that it
would resist it to the utmost, and that un
til the Southern people were struck with
judicial blindness ; the doctrine of disunion
could never take a deep hold upon the
public mind." This we believe to be the
view of an-overwtrelmintr majority of the
Southern people. True, there are ultras,
secessionists and nullifiers among them,
but they amount to a mere handful, com
paratively speaking, and are utterly insig
nificant, The South was never in the en
joyment of a higher degree of prosperity
than lit the present time. Their greet

be treated accordingly.
Meeting of the State Central Committee.
ALTOONA, May 4.—The State Central
Committee of the State Rights' Democracy
-met to-day at the Logan (louse.
Letters warmly expressive of an ear
nest co-operation in the cause were recei
ved from prominent men train all over the
Stole, regretting their inability to attend.
Col. Forney presided with Messrs.
Brown of Dauphin county, Harper of Al
legheny county, and Redick of Fayette
county, as Secretaries.
There was a full and free interchange
of opinion, and much enthusiasm was ex
cited by the energy and determination of
the members to push on the move.
Resolutions were adopted to the follow.
ing effect.
1. That it is inexpedient at the Ines•
ant time to nominate a State ticket.
?. Formally proclaiming an unalterable
opposition to the doctrine of Congressional
intervention in relation to slavery in the
Territories as advocated by the Republi-
cans to their platform of 1836. for the pro.
hibition of slavery in the Territories; or
as advocated by the Administration Dem
ocrats for the protection of slavery in the

lar rovervignty to vote for no candidates
at the coming arid future elections, for coun
ty, State, or national officers, who retuse
to stand clearly upon the doctrine which
recognizes the principle that'ilie people of
the Territories, like those of a State, shall
forum and regulate 'heir own domestic in
stitutions in their omen way.
4. Recommending to the Uhion State
rights Democracy of Pennsylvania to de.
mand, at all times and in all places, the
adoption of the principles promulgated by
the Harrisburg Convention of the 13th of
April, 1859, and which were enunciated
in the Cincinnati platform of 1856, and
in, Mr. Buchanan's letter of a:cept.
5. That county committees of corres.
pondence bs created.
A commitee was appointed to issue nn
address to the people of Pennsylvania.
Speeches were made by ad the mem•
hers of the Committee, and the utmost urn
miniry prevailed throughout.
Our Western exchanges all continent in
dignantly upon the outrage committed iu
Ter. upon Bishop Janes and the Texas
Conference or the Slethodiat 'Episcopal
Church, North. It was one of those inci
dents which, in themselves, portray butter
than any language can, the wickedness of
Slavery and it, utter disregard attic rights
of those who come in conflict with it.—
Thu Christian .11vocatc, of St. Louis,
uses, in this connection, the following
strong language :
'Has it cone to this, that in our great,
free and glorious country, a bishop of our
church is to be arrested while conducting
divine service, by a worthless mob of Bor
der Ruffians, led on by the Church South,
and our ministers required to abandon
their work ? This is not a question of
mere Methodism or local interest. It is a
question in which are involved the princi
ples of civil and religious liberty. We
assert and maintain the doctrine that we
have the right to go Into any State or Ter
ritory, North or South, and preach the
Gospel and ad minister our Discipl kith.
out .let or hindrance.' We hope our
brethren in Texas will stand by the church.
They have our sympathy and prayers; we
know what it is to pass through the fatty
ordeal they are called to experience.—
The conflict in reality is not with the ciii.
tens of Texas, but with the church south.
That church is banished on the arena of
fair argumentative conflicts. The decisive
proof of this position is, site has to have
recourse to physical force—pistols and bo
wie -knives, The church south, after this
Bonham affair, cannot say, "rho weapons
of out warfare are not carnal: We hope
our brethren throughout the church will
pray for the brethren on our border work;
it is a trying time. Our trust is on God
—the God of our fathers, the same God
that sustained them during persecution
and death, while engaged in planting our
beloved Methodism in this land. This is
the hour of suffering, but the day of tri
umph is not tar distant."
from the P ittaburg papers that a catastro•
phe of a most appalling nature occurred
yesterday morning on the Pennsylvania
Railroad, in the vicinity of Greensburg.—
It appears that the ballast train was in ser
vice as usual, and that while on its way
east, and within a short distance of Greens•
burg, the locomotive exploded with a Ire•
mendens report, killing three men and
shattering the engine to pieces. John
Dodds, the Engineer. and Mr. Woods, the
Conductor, were killed instantly, and Jo
seph Speelman, engaged as a fireman on
the train, injured to such an extent that he
died in a few minutes. The engine, as
we have stated, was blown to pieces, and

which exist among the various elements
of the opposition to the present corrupt
Democratic administration. The result in
Philadelphia on Tuesday last, admonishes
us that unless we are united throughout
the State, and go into the canvass standing
on a common platform, and supporting a
united ticket, the goldan opportunity to
crush out the Democracy will be allowed
to pass unimproved. We can see no ne

Oxe of the humanitarian movements of the
times, although little known as such, can hard
ly be over estimated hi its importance upon
the well being of our widely scattered commu
nities. The population of the American States
is in ninny sections so sparse, that skillful
Physicians are hardly available to t4em. Vast
numbers of our people, are obliged to employ
in sickness, such medisnl relict' as they can
bear of from each other, or indeed any they
can get front any quarter. Hence arises the
great consumption of Patent Medicines among
us, greeter by her than in any of the old coun
tries, where skillful physicians are accessible
to all classes. Unprincipled men have long
availed themselves of this necessity, to palm
off their worthless nostrums, until the word
has become synonemous with imposition and
cheat. Oue of our leading Chemists in the
East, De. Area, is pursuing a course which
defeats this iniquity. He brings not only his
own but the best skill of our times to bear, for
the production of the beat remedies which can
be made. These are supplied to the world, in
a convenient form, at low prices, and the peo
ple will no more buy poor medicines instead of
good, at the same cost, than they will bran in
stead of floor. The inevitahle consequence of
this is, that the vile cotnpounds that flood our
country are discarded for those which honestly
accomplish the end in view--whic i cure. Do
we over estimate its importance, in believing
that this prospect of supplanting the by-word
medicines, with those of actual worth and sir.
toe, is fraught with immense consequences for
good, in the masses of our people.-4 Gazette

ENLARGINO.-The large number of students
in atteudance at the Iron City College has
made it necessary for the managers of that
popular institution to open separate rooms for
the several departments of the College. One
Ilan, capable of seating two hundred and lifts:
students, is now appropriated exclusively to
those engaged in bookkeeping- another, with
a capacity for one hundred and fifty, is devoted
to the writing department; a third. with aecom•
modations for two hundred, is occupied by
thme engaged in mathematical studies, while
the fourth, as a lecture room, is occupied from
four to six hears each day, by some of the pro
fessors with their classes. 7lie present capa
bilities of the College are ample for the accom
modation of six hundred students; but should
its patronage increase for thr year to come, as
it lint during the past, the College rooms will
