County Convention.
It will be observed that the call for the Coun.
ty Convention is published in this column.
We hope there will be a full attendance at the
delegate meetings, and harmony of action.
English Opinion.
The English press is divided on the war.
All fear Napoleon, but many hate him. One
writer says: "Austria is a spotless virgin com
pel, d to England. England, whose pirate
hand carries desolation to every state, commits
murder where she feels no hatred, plunders
without obtaining a share of the spoil, destroys
her customers to promote her commerce and
leeds herself with taxes that she may commit
innesacree in the name of religion. But now,
at least, England is neutral. England's neu
trality is the neutrality of an assassin who has
provided the weapons, and looks on while an
other strikes the blow. But in the present
ease neutrality means that England will wait
till the time comes for having her own throat
The Lale War Nerve.
The late ativices from Europe, which will be
the highest itiportance. A s m £her aangninarf
battle, in which four hundred thousand men
were engaged, had taken place, resulting in a
splendid victory for the French, and a signal
defeat to the Austrians, who are reported to
have had 35,000 men placed hors de combat,
and been driven from every position they oo•
copied nn the Mincio. The conflict raged for
sixteen hour . .. It may be safely net down
as the greatest battle of modern times—terri•
ble and bloody. Prussia is reported to be
marching upon the Rhine. Should this and
the rumor that the German Confederation will
support Austria, prove correct, then Russia will
cry havoc and "let slip the dogs of war." But
we recommend the news to , the reader's peru•
sl, having neither time nor space to add any
thing further .
Pike's Peak Again.
Last week we gave a synopsis of Greeley'.
letters from the gold diggings, and took the
liberty of doubting the st demente therein made.
The latest news confirms these opinions, and
informs us that only some half dozen claims
have yet been discovered that pay, on the Gre
gory road, the rest being all a desert. The re•
ports of the richness of other claims are set
down as absolutely false. It is estimated that
there are some 30,000 persons at the mines,
who are either doing nothing at all or merely
working for their board ; and the mi term are
leaving in large numbers. Ills further stated
that the mines will not under any circumstan.
can support more than 5,000 persons, and eve
rybody is very sensibly advised to stay at home.
What a blessing it will bs to our country
when the terrible farce of "gold discoveries," is
over I The last two failures of Frazier River
and Pike's Peak, will sorely do something to
cure this disease, and induce people to settle
down to some rational means of earning a live
lihood, instead of listening to the tales of un
principled speculators, who care nothing for
the suffering and distrees they cause by their ,
The Way to Secure Harmony.
He is a wise man who learns wisdom from
experience, and that is a wise party which
heeds the warnings of the past. Experience
has demonstrated the fact, that political j•tg
pling has had its day in Huntingdon County,
and that the masses of the people are disposed
to discountenance the trickery of party backs,
when wire•working schemes are put in opera
tion to secure political favors to themselves, at
the expense of justice and fair-dealing, and in
direct violation of the popular will. From the
Haigna of the times," we have some misgivings
of an effort being put forth to impose, slyly, up
on the people, by a species of log-rolling, which
may result in the selection of unprincipled as
pmts. The only way in which a thorough
and united Opposition vote will be cast this fall,
is through the iinportapt aid of a good ticket.
Row very careful, then, should the Convention
be in its nominations.
We ask nothing in behalf of the people but
open, fair, and just action, on its part, and we
shall accept nothing lees, If this be done, we
bare no fear of the nomination of a bad man;
if it is not, we hope we have manhood and in•
dependence enough to repudiate and expose
corruption and fraud, and vindicate the name
W justice and honor,
A lova to Ore wise Amid
Protection—A Tariff President for
When James Buchanan took the reins of
government into his hand., three years ago,
there was a surplus fund in our Treasury of over
twenty millions of dollars, hard specie. There
was no immense debt hanging over our heads,
to paralyze our energies, a• which req hod the
grinding taxation of the working classes to
meet the interest thereon. He started with a
clean sheet, to test the workings of "
sive democratic free trade. Almost three' ;
years have passed, and what is now the condi
tion of th- government? We are almost bank
rept ; the best of our public lands has been
sold, and the money squandered; a debt of near•
ly one hundred millions of dollars incurred,
and still, like greedy cormorants, the powers
that be, demand more money. Nor is this all.
The industrial enterprizeim which sprung up and
flourished under the genial influence of the Ad•
ministration of Taylor arid l'ilmore are droop.
ing, and will eventually perish under the bane•
ful influence of the British protecting policy,
which has been adopted in its stead. Agricul.
tore, though not exactly prostrate. will soon
weaken;' manufacturers aro so sufficiently
crippled that nothing remains but a still fur
ther reduction of the wages of operatives, or a
suspension of operations ; and the same may
he said of mining. In the East, especially, ev
ery kind of manufacturers has been cut down;
business curtailed ; the wages of operatives
been reduced—all done to save the propriet. rs
from ruin, inevitable rain, under the workings
of this system of free trade "progressive de•
mocracy." The Iron and Coal interests of
Pennsylvania, are likewise languishing under
the deve'.opementof this same pernicious systems.
The legitimate effect of this doctrine is showing
itself, and of course our State is the first to suf.
for under it in the injury done to her iron and
coal trade, British iron, manufactured by pau
per, labor, and Ma. Buchanan's "ten cent day"
men, is, ani has been pouring into the country,
under a reduced duty, guaranteed a. d fostered
by our Chief Executive, at such low rates, that
it is impossible for our iron -masters, paying full
republican, freeman's wages, to compete with
it, and thus, the foreign snide undersells the
domestic in our own market. The coal inter
est—and we citizens of Huntingdon County
are particularly interested in this branch of
commercial taaffic—is also suffering ; fur for
eign importations from Novia Scotia and else
where, undersea Pen, aylvania coal in all the
Eastern markets. Thus the wealth of our hills
is being made comparatively unproductive,
and the mineral deposits of Pennsylvania are
to be left unwronght- under the policy %Mel has
been inaugurated and established by the men
now in power. The other branches of Ameri
can industry, have been no less injuriously af
fected by the operations of this " progressive
system. All handicraftsmen, whose unobstru
sive but widely diffused labors make up so large
a portion of the Domestic Industry of thin coon.
their imiter.stk" 'rtestgut %welt iniuriotta.te
usurped in a great measure, the place of domes
tic manufacture. All our tradesmen and man'
efacturare have to work against British compe
tition, under the false principles of the present
policy, and it they do not fail, it is not beeause
they are fostered by government favor.
This, then, is the beautiful system, which has
,been styled " progressive democracy." Surely
its ruinous effects have become sufficiently,
painfully apparent. Why then longer sport
with a question which has so much and reality
in it. These things meet and will continue so
long as men unprincipled as James Buchana n
are elevated to office. Let the people awake
to their interests. Agitate the question now,
and let the fruits of the "progressive" reign of
Buchanan, drive them to seek succor from
such a policy, as it did in the Harrison triumph
of 1840. which under the wholesome provisions
of the Tariff of 1842, restored the interests of
labor, encouraged the industry of the country,
and brought back rational prosperity by filling
the coffers of an empty Treasury to repletion.
And to this source, we fondly hope, the people
will again fly, in 1860, to eestore the country to
its prosperity, and happiness, in the . nomination
and election of a Tariff Protection President.
A man in whom all these principles are am•
bodied his already been named. Nerd wel
point to General Simon Cameron. WWI him
as our nominee, victory would be as certain as
fate. We need deliver no panegyric in his
praise. He is known, and known as a man
who is a patriot from principle, and the friend
of the working classes.
We hope our coming County Convention
will take some action in the matter of a pref.
ernece for a Presidential candidate, feeling as
we do, that every member of the People's Par.
ty in Huntingdon County, whether Republican,
American or Democrat heretofore, favors the
nomination of Gen. Cameron.
The "Little Giant" has written a character's
tic letter to one J. B. Dorr, in which he states
the condition.' upon which he would agree to
accept the nomination of President, at the hands
of the distracted Democracy. It is, iu truth,
a document praiseworthy in many particular..
pointed and conscise. In it he clearly enuoci•
ate. his opposition to any of the Buchanan
dogmas, and b .Idly asserts that if the Democ
racy will adhere "to the principles embodied
in the compromise measures of 1850, and rot.
ified by the people ir. the Presidential election
of 1802, and reaffirmed in the Kansas Nehru
ka act of 1854, and incorporated into the Cin
cinnati Platform in 1856, as expounded by Mr.
Buchanan in his letter accepting the nomina•
Lion, and approved by the people;" then, and
in that event only will he permit his name to
go before the Charleston Convention. On the
other hand, if it should be the policy of the
Democratic party to repudiate "their time•
honored principles," and interpolate into the
creed of the party "such new issues as the re
vival of the African slave trade or a Congres
sional slave code for the Territories or the
doctrine that the Constitution of the United
States either establishes r r prohibits slavery
in the Territory beyond the power of the peo
ple legally to control it as other property, it
Oe des to gander to say that, is such an event
I could not accept the nomination if tendered,
to me."
This avowal of Judge Douglas, if made in
sincerity, does honor to his head and heart, !
and must fall as a thunderbolt from a clear sky,
among the powers that be. The Constitution,
the President's er,ean receives it as an open
declaration of hostility to the nominee of the
Charleston Convention, and many of the South•
ern fire eating journals boldly declare that it
confirms Douglas a traitor, and in choice lan
gußge nay, "Lei hint be anathema ninranathe."
This is plain talk, and Mr. Douglas will need ,
the aid of no interpreter or glossary, or die-'
tionary, to enable him to understand it. There
can be 110 longer• any doubt that the Southern
Democracy have resolved to repudiate Douglas.
nod oppose him with as much virulence as
they ever opposed Martin Van Buren. They
will not touch him with a forty rod•pole.
A Capital lilt t
Decided'y the best "dig," in which not only
a pal of Buchanan's is admirably,"hit," but a
clear and palpable consttuction of Cans' La
Clore letter is given, is the following, which
we copy from the letter of the Washington car.

Epilepsy, or Falling Fits.
We believe we cannot do our readers a more
important service than by again calling their
attention , to that most remarkable preparation,
discovered by Dr. Seth S. Hance, of Baltimore
Md., whit h possesses the power of alleviating
and curing that horrid visinaion of man—Ep•
hem, or Falling Fits. In recommending this
preparation to our readers, we do so wok a con
victim: that we are not degrading our columns
to puff a common patent medicine, but are
piscine belore them a discovery, which, if ful
ly known,. would probably do more to alleviate
human suffering, than any invention of modern
times. Dr. Huoce, in asking us to notice his
prenanttion favorably in our editorial depart
meat; has sent uu for perusal a number of let.
tera from persons who hack used his Pills, and
have; been cured thereby. All of them speak
in the most rrateful and eulogistic terms.—
One great advantage this medicine possesses
is the fact, that it can be transported through
the mails, thereby affording every one an op.
portunity of dealing directly with the inventor,
and also precluding all possibility of being
imposed on by a counterfeit or Ipturious imittc
lion. Dr. fiance pnya the postage on all his
Pills to any part of the country, and will for
ward them by return of mail, on the receipt of
a remittance. Biel prices are as follows One
box, $2; two do., $5; twelve d0.,524. All or
