lecturers of the day," entertained our citizens
last week, with one of his incomparable lee..
tures, on all the leading topics of the day,
interspersed with wit and humor, and winding
up with the remarkable qualities of his "New
England Soap." Prof. G., is a gentleman, in
every sense of the term, a scholar, and a good
fellow, generally. Wherever be goes, he drives
away the " blue devils," purifies the commu
nity and—makes lots of money. Such a man
is deserving the great success wb ich has crowned
his labors for the public good, and we take
p.n... y Luny w WWI V letiLl•

as a great purifier. It has, in fact, become
one of the " institutions" of the county; and
people would almost as soon think of relaps

Prof. Gardner's world renowned New England
Soap. We need not say, wherever he goes,
may success attend him, for his preparation is
bound to sell wherever it is tried.

The recent election in Kentucky has resul

dates for Governor and Stateofficers, by from 7
to 10,000 majority, and a majority in the Legis

Breckenridge or some other Democrat to the
United States Senate, in the place of John J.
Crittenden. In the Congressional delegation,

there is a tie vote.

The People's County Ticket.
It is with a pleasure, sincere and heartfelt,
that we notice the action of the People's Coun
ty Convention which met in this borough on
Tuesday last. We can safely say we have nev
er before attended a meeting of this kind, where
a more harmonious and orderly feeling pre•
vailed throughout the entire proceedings, and
where the spirit of true patriotism was more
sincerely felt. Every township and borough
was represented, and the delegates were intel
ligent, honest and reliable men. The tick
et formed, which will be found under our
masthead, is composed of the right kind of
men, and we are truly gratified at the uuiver.

R. B. WIGTON, Esq., of Huntingdon bor
ough, has been re-nominated for Assembly, by
acclamation. This is a compliment, handsome
as it is deserving, and proves conclusively that
our fellow citizens take pride in rewarding their
faithful and honest public servants. Mr. Wig
ton is a popular and able candidate, and his re
nomination will be of immense importance to
our Party, in maintaining and advancing the
cause in the campaign in which we are engaged;
and his election—of which there is not n shad
ow of doubt—will be an honor and advantage
to every citizen of the county. As a business
man, Mr. W.has no superior and but few equals
in the State, and the faithful and energetic
manner in which he represented his constitu
ents in the last Legislature, fully attests his
ability to perform the responsible duties of his
office with credit to himself and advantage to
the people. As a great effort will be made by
the leaders of the difierent factions of the Lo•
cofoco party in the county to defeat Mr. W.,
and as they rely principally upon the " Railroad
Question" and the reduction of the "Salary"
of our Representatives to secure this object, it
will be well for our friends to know our candi
dates true position on these issues. In regard
to the latter, he voted, last winter, against the
resolution proposing to increase the salaries of
Representatives, and stands pledged todiscoun
tenance any scheme which has for its object the
increase thereof. In relation to the repeal of
the tonnage tax imposed upon the Pennsylva
nia Railroad, Mr. Wigton has been instructed
by the Convention which nominated him, on
the course he is to pursue, should that question
arise in the next Legislature It is embodied
in the resolution
Resolved, That we deem it the right of the
people to instruct their representatives, and we
hereby instruct our candidate for Assembly, to
oppose the repeal of the three mill tonnage tax
imposed upon the Pennsylvania Railroad Co.
for freights, &c."
This covers the whole ground, and places
our candidate in the right position. We hope
011 r friends will not be deceived by the wily ar
tifices of the Buchanan demagogues. The tri.
umphant election of Mr. Wigton is beyond
a peradventure.
Gen. JOHN C. WATSON, of Brady town•
ship, is the nominee of the Convention, for
Sheriff. He is a gentleman of excellent char.
actor fur hon esty
and we
hail hie selection with pleasure. No man in
Huntingdon county is better qualified to fill
this office; having been engaged nil his life in
ta pursuit which requires the greatest amount
of business talent, and possessing in an emi•
nest degree all the qualifications necessary to
tnake an obliging, competent and efficient officer.
An henester man does cot breathe, and a more
moral and upright citizen, the State cannot
boast. With such a man, who would be silly
enough to think an instant of defeat.
HENRY T. WHITE, Esq., of Oneida town.
altip, is the choice of the Convention fur Colin.
ty Treasurer. This gentleman has for some
three years been studying law in this borough,
and at the last April term of C3urt, after a
highly creditable examination was admitted to
the Bar. He is a young man of commanding
talents, and the high estimation in which he is
held by the people of this place, is but the just
tribute to a strictly upright and correct" waili
and conversation." So far as capacity is con.
corned, Mr. White's abilities are unquestiona
ble, and we have no hesitancy in saying that he
will discharge the duties of the office for which
ho has been nominated, to the satisfaction of
every one. He deserves and will receive a
handsome majority.
Major WILLIAM MOORE, of-West town.
ship is nominated for Director of the Poor.
A better selection could not possible have been
made. The nominee is one of the most pops.
tar and highly esteemed citizen of the "upper
end " of the county; has always been an ac
tive and energetic member of the party, and
will be elected as sure as the 2d Tuesday of
October comes round.
township, is our candidate for County Commis
sioner. It would be superfluous for us to say
anything about 'Squire Campbell. He is well
known all over the county, as a life-long, devo.
ted, and ardent member of the party opposed
to Locofocoisni; who has never deserted the
ranks nor dodged a principle. He is an hon
est man; a pure and upright citizen; with
abilities of no ordinary kind ; and the interests
of the county will be perfectly secure in his
JOHN F. RAMEY, of Huntingdon, is the
choice for County Surveyor. He has filled this
office for some time, to the entire satisfaction of
the people; and we have no doubt will continue
to please the public in the capacity of a public
officer. He is bound to be elected.
WM. L. CUNNINGHAM, of Clay town•
ship, and ISRAEL GRAFFIUS, Esq., of Al
exandria, were nominated for Auditors. Al.
though this is an office which may appear of
little importance, yet in reality it is the very
one which requires the clearest head and pu
rest heart to fill faithfully. These qualifica
tions are possessed by our candidates. They
aro both able calculators and strictly honest
men. Such names area " tower of strength "
to a ticket.
JOHN W. MATTERN, Esq., of this bor
ough, received the nomination for District At
torney. We heartily endorse this choice, know.
ing Mr. Mattern to be a competent and excel.
lent candidate, fully filling the true standard—
honesty and capacity.
HENRY ORAFFILTS, of Alexandria, is
the candidate for Coroner. Ho is an intelli
gent and industrious mechanic ; has always
been a zealous .d efficient party-man, and
will fill the office with credit.
Such, fellow•citizens of Huntingdon county,
is the material we present for your suffrages.
Although our description has been feeble and
inadequate, it is a ticket unexceptionable ;
there is not an incompetent or unworthy man
upon it, and it stands upon a platform which
every honest man must acknowledge to be the
best for our county. We ask you now in view
of the momentous interests at stake to rally,
rally one and all to its support. Vote for the
ticket, the whole ticket and nothing but the tick
et, and let us roll up such a majority in October
as sill cheer the hearts of our friends in other
parts of the State, and nerve them up for the.
great Presidential battle, under the banner of
Protection and Freedom.
Prepare for action. The Locofocos are
splitand dismembered, and nothing is wanting
but unity of action and A FULL OPPOSI
TION VOTE to secure a glorious triumph in
October. We call upon all our friends in the
county to organize at once, and prepare to
meet the enemy with a solid front. "If we
all pull together, we can't be beat." Let us
prepare, therefore, to "all pull together," and
discountenance everything which would have
'a tendency t c militate against the cause, or de
feat any of our candidates. The Locofocos,
driven to desperation by their recent shameful
defeats, will leave nothing undone which will
tend to make our candidates unpopular in the
minds of those who are silly enough to believe
the stories they set afloat. But we hope they
will not succeed. They have meu to deal with
—men who "ask no favors and shrink from no
responsibility." They rally, rally; and let us
sing our good old songs as

on search being made, the plate for striking
cheeks on Bt. Louie, together with a number of
blank checks, were found. The fellow had in
his possession several checks with the Quarter.
masters name upon them. The signature had
been so accurately traced that the Quartermas

most dangerous attempts at forgery ever per.
