elections in this county.
Resolved, That the People's Party of this

actor for honesty and integrity, and eminently
qualified for the positions they have been no
minated to fill.
Resolved, That in the person of the lion.
Samuel Calvin of Blair county, we recognize
an old. and highly valued resident of our own
esonnty—and one who by his sterling integrity
and substantial worth as a man, and his at
tainmcnts as a scholar, as well as his experi• !
ence and sound judgment as a statesman, es

" DEMOCRATIC, " COUNTY CONTENTION—A
"Go IT BLIND" OLD TIME
GENERALLY.—Tho sham Democracy met in
convention, on Wednesday last, in the Court
House, and organized by electing Dr. Daniel
Houtz of Alexandria, Chairinan, and Dr. R.
Clark and Seckler, Secretaries. The
Chairman delivered himself of a few cautious
and well guarded remarks, upon taking the
chair, urging that a spirit of compromise and
good feeling should reign in democratic bo
soms, and tool: his seat amid an ominous si
knee. After the credentials of all the dele
gates had been presented, the Convention pro
ceeded to ballot fur Assembly. At this stage
of the proceedings, a member rose and wished
to know "Under which king, Bezonian?" they
were to fight ; whether they were to support
the Huntingdon Globe and its Donglasism, or
the Huntingdon Vision and its Buchananism,
as their organ. This bombshell created a
tremendous excitementand uproar, and it was
only after the rural gentleman had been ap
peased by a promise that his motion should be
considered hereafter, that be consented to fol
iose the direaion of the chair, and "dry up:"
A "peace pregnant with war" having been se
cured, Messrs Africa, Cresswell, and Portet,
were placed in nomination for Assembly. Mr.
Cresswell asked and gained permission to ad
dress the Convention. He "pitched into" the
Pennsylvania Railroad, but "nary word" said
the virtuous candidate of Democracy, nor of
the doctrine of Know Nothingism, which he
once so warmly espoused. Mr. Africa follow:
ed--deffiting his position on the railroad ques
tion, and took a "Common Sense" view of the
duties of a Legislator, thereon. He proposed,
if elected, to accept as a compensation for ser
vices rendered, $2OO less than his fellowonem
bers, but did not once advert to Locofocuisin,
nor the Know Nothing Party, from which he
expects votes. A vote was then taker, nod
resulted as follows, on the first ballot
J. Simpson Africa, 42 I Jacob Cresswell, 23
The announcement created great excitement,
this being considered n test of the comparative
strength of the two factions. One delegate,
(whose name will be found on the criminal rec
ords of our last Quarter Sessions for illegal in.
terference in an el etion—he being an unnatu
ralized foreigner) gave vent to the pent tap feel
ings of his Celtic heart, by a "Ilooroo for 800.
canna." Another, yelled "for little Dough.,"
and so they kept it up. The next move was
the Sheriff:thy. There were nomiLated for
this office, Thos. Bell, of the Squatter Sover
eigns, David Black, of the Buck wing, and G.
W. Speer, who occupies both sides of the
fence, with a leaning towards 'bald hornetism.'
Ile was elected on the 2:1 ballot; the vote stood:
Spr , er, I Bell, 22 I Black, 12
35 12 " 18
After this ballot, the question of salary for
Representative, was again brought up, uniler
the most intense excitement; every delegate
on his feet, and the "Mt. Vernon cane" of the
Chairman, vainly thumping for order, on the
pine boards. It was finally settled that Mr.
Africa's salary should not exceed $5OO l The
other officers nominated were :
Jacob Miller, of Huntingdon, for Treasurer;
Gr N. Galbraith, for Commissioner ; Sam. T.
Brown, for District Attorney; Rob't Mcßirney,
for County Surveyor, and N. K. Cobert, for Au
A resolution was offered, that "this Conven•
don adjourn to meet again on the first week of
the January Court." This brought Mr. Cress-
Tell to his feet, who thought he discovered "a
nigger in the wood•pile," and he proceeded to
address tho Convention, as follows :
JACOB MAKETU A SPEECU.
The Col. "wished it distinctly understood
that he was an uncompromising Buchanan, old
stripe Democrat." [Cries of "go in, Joke;"
"put him outt" "hooroo for Boocanun, be J..
sus."] - This Convention was "a farce ; the
creature of the Penn'a Railroad, and a hum
bug, generally. Both the Secretaries hold of
fice under the Railroad Company, and the
busiest man on the floor, has a $75 per month
sinecure under the same corporation." [This
brought the Secretaries "up standing;" one of
them declaring that although ho did hold of
fice under the Company, he was now a good,
honest Democrat, and had been one long be
fore Mr. C. was converted from Know Nett,
ingism.] Jacob proceeded : 'I reiterate it,
you are sold, body and breeches," to this cor
poration." [Here the Qhairman vainly cried
out, brandishing his cane overhead, and sunk.
ing a feint as if to throw it at the refractory
members, "Take your seat, sir; I will not have
the Convention thus disgraced, sir. I tell you
I air, take your seat, air! your seat sir I your
seat s—i—r—r] BLit Jacob, like Banquo's ghost,
"would not down," but continued in spite of
the "anise and confusion," to "shake his goary
locks" and backed by his friends he went on :
"I have the floor, sir I Why don't you send for I
your constable, .d arrest me ? I say you have
bargained with the Railroad and sold us." Af•
ter the noise bad subsided a little, lie finished,
thus : "Are we to be bamboozled by the tools
of John W. Forney, in this manner ? They
are so working it, fellow•dernocrats, that they I
hope to carry you all over to the support of Si.
mon Cameron." The gentleman concluded
by asserting that the resolution now offered, if
carried, wodld be disastrous to the Buchanan
forced down, and the
The Col. was finall:
resolution was passed. Then, without passing
a single resolution, nor erecting a single plank
to govern the party in the present campaign,
this miserable, conglomerated mass of factions
adjourned.. So endeth the first chapter of the
attempt to harmonize the elements. We might
as well attempt the mixture of oil and water.
Alas! poor "democracy."
News ABOUT Homc.—Ox Wednesday eve
ning last, some half-witted or two-thirds drunk
fellow amused our citizens by a series of comic
evolutions on horseback, on Montgomery street.
The exercise consisted in trotting backwards,
sideways and mancenvering, a la Barey.
A MOST disgraceful and outrageous scene oc
curred on Allegheny street, on Friday night
last, a repetition of which, we think our bor
ough authorities should not suffer to disturb
the respectal.le residents of the vicinity. A
ball was given at the " —," in which
many of else canal rats, town loafers and char
acters of the "genus blackguard" participated,
and which was kept up until near daylight,
Saturday morning. The programme consisted
of an interspersion of "hoe•downs" and free
fights, in which the ladies indulged to their
heart's content, and in which they appeared to
be particularly delighted. Common decency
forbids the mention of all the disgraceful acts
which occurred, but the winding-up was suffi
ciently hod to call for an arrest cf the partici
pants. The "pots and pans" containing the
supper were carried off, and the latter,—being
a compound of dirt and chicken-soup—poured
out on else steps and on the pavement in front
of the Journal and American offices. We
shall give the names as soon as we can obtain
them.—A MOST serious accident resultiiig
from the careless use of firearms, and which
might have caused a horrible death, occurred
at Co!. Summer's restaurant, on Montgomery
street, on Thursday last. Several persons
were examining a revolver, kept for sale by
the Col., which was not known to be loaded,
and in snapping the trigger, the load was dis•
charged; the ball entering the mouth of a young
man named McAlister, who was standing b: ,
knocking out a tooth, cutting the tongue and
fracturing the jaw. Front a most miraculous
and unaccountable cause no farther injury
was sustained. This is another warning rela
tive to the careless manner in which some peo
ple handle fire arms, and whirls see have no
doubt will be beneficial to the present portico.
Mr. Mc. is recovering.—lloniiiii Arc"
—On Tuesday last, a well known and highly
respectable citizen of Oneida township—Mr.
Samuel Colas, millwright—suet with a most
horrible and sudden death, He was engaged
in doing some repairing about Neft's Stearn
Mill, on Shaver's Creek, ou scaffolding erect .d
for the purpose, when he fell amongst the mn•
chinery, and was crushed to death in an in
stant. We aro iuformed that when taken out,
the body was so dreadfully mangled us to be
unrecognizable by his friends. Mr. Coats was
about sixty years of age, and was au honest
and industrious citizen. He leaves a wife, and
we believe a large family of children. Since
penning the foregoing, and just as we go to
press, we received the particulars in a letter front
our• friend Mr. Neff, and we are sorry wo have
no room for it entire. It appears, in company
with his sun, Ise was placing a piece of timber
as a sill, upon which to erect a frame, when it
was caught by ft crank of the steam engine, by
which the mill is propelled, and threw him se
veral feet high and against the fly-I:heel, whirls
carried him into the pit, crushing him, in an
instant of time, into a lifeless mass.—Ox
il'hursday last, one of our citizens—Mr. Zech.
Yenter—whilst examining the machinery of
the new steam mill of Messrs. Harrison it;
Mutton, receetly erected in this place, had his
heel crushed by the falling of some heavy
weight upon it. No bone was broken, hut the
flesh was terribly bruised and torn, and at first
it was supposed that amputation would be nec
essary. At last accounts, it was improving,
but it will require massy weeks, ere he will be
able to gc about.—Wint making appears to
be successfully carried on by our citizens, and
a good article they make too. We tested some
the other day manufactured from currants by
Blanch. Miles, Esq., which we pronounce as
good as any Nreign production.—Wz had
the pleasure of taking our old friend Over, of
the Bedford laquirer, by the hand, the other
day. The Cul. is a fine specimen of the genu
ine editor, and the way he handles "beef heels,"
is a caution to toadies.—For some of the
largest and best plums we have seen or tasted
this season, we are indebted to Miss. Lou Fos
ter. Mies Lou will please accept our thanks
fur her kind present.—Our colored friends
intend having a camp meeting the coining
month, at Beechen Glen. It will commence
on the 2d of September, and will probabl.
thine eight or ton cIays.—SANIUEI. CALVIN,
Esq., of Hollidaysburg, a prominent candidate
for Gubernatorial honors, paid us a visit last
week. He is evert inch a gentleman, and we
would like to see hint nominated in 1860, if
we cannot have the first man of our choice,
Hon. John Covode.—How swiftly time flies.
It appears as but yesterday when we sat be.
side companions—who are now "mothers and
fathers".—in the little aid school room, and
went over and over again our e, b, c's. Many
have went "the way of all flesh," and the good
man who took so muck pains with "his little
family," too, has rested front his labors. Yes,
truly, time wears slippers of list, and his tread
is noiseless. The days come softly on dew.
ning one after another; they creep in at the
windows; their fresh morning air is grateful
to the lips that part fur it; their music is sweet
As the ears that listen to it; until, before we
know it, a whole life of days has possession of
the citadel, and time has taken us for its own.

We are gratified that. the lady has taken the
trouble to address us upon a subject of such
vital importance. Our modesty heretofore re
strained us from tnakiug known this useful in• •
formation, pro bona publico, hot we now hear- !
lily respond to the request of Our fair corres
pondent—not, however, to show "we're smarter !
nor common folks." "Pracktikle ettikit•' tea
cites that a ''sports" is preferable to either a
knife or fork ill eating soup, and there is no ,
apology for the abotrnable and filthy practice
of lapping soup. That Settles the "spone"
question. But again, however, the "nife" is far
superior to either spoons or forks in the dissec
tion of fowl or fish, yet, at the saute time, the
fork must not be considered indispensible, in
such cases, if tie fingers are clean. That set
tles the "nife" question. Next come "torn."
In out opinion (and our opinion upon this sub•
Pet should be received as unquestioned author
ity,) while t koives and spasms receive their full
quota of public notice, it would be worse than
barbarous, and totally unworthy a civilized peo
ple, to ignore the use of "forx." For, it would
be utterly impossible, yen madness, to attempt
the elevation of ad apple dutnpling from its re
' cumbent position is a bed of boiling liquid
without she aid of '•furs." That settles the
"forx" question. Next comes fingers. Fingers
may bo used, when scrupulously clean, in cons
veying the luscious luxury (beef, we mean,)
from plate to platter—however "forx" are not
to be despised. Argument Id. Fingers may
also be used (clean or dirty) in the absence of!
the other articles. This settles the finger gees
tion. By way of iinptovement, permit us to
remark, that notwithstanding the diversity of
opinion upatl the subject of •pracluikle ettikit,'
there is a universal tenth which shall never fail
—where fingers arc absent, "forx" are useless.
Su it will he seen that we could not dispense
with either Uf these articles, without inflicting
upon ourself an annoying inconvenience; and
so we dismiss the subject,
McConoughy, the razor powder man,
does a thriving business in this place, during
our Court. The reason is Ile sells an article
which has been tried by our citizens and found
to be all he claims for it. His " Electric Oil"
is of the genuine stripe, and wherever he goes,
he should be hailed as the reliever of almost
all the " ills that flesh is heir to." We have
I tried both, and can safely recommend the arti•
cles as genuine, and excel lent for what they
are intended, and deserving the high estimation
in which they are held by our neighbors.
