For thu Journal.
Mr. Editor: In consequcuco of a tremen
dous excitement in onr "burg," on Saturday
evening, I was. naturally led to inquire . the
cause, and being told that there was to be
a 'grand demonstration of the democracy' at
Mottntjoy School-house, I began to think of
being present. After much parly ing with the
better feelings of my nature, I came to the
conclusion that in the event of my . going, I
might learn something new ; so accordingly I
joined In with a "leetlo" of the wildcat crowd
that could be scared up, tho actions of some
strongly indicating that they had a little of
the critter on hand. On entering the house, I
found about thirty or thirty-five individuals
present, and tho Hon. G. R. Barret engaged in
reading a portion of Bigler's late address. Af
ter he had read that part of it relating to tho
school system, he invited Mr. R. Wallace to
take the document and read the balance,which
was dedicated to the Know Nothing, and
which, by the way, gave general satisfaction to
a few old Locos present. Barret was then
loudly called for to address the meeting. lie
arose and stated that as this was an age of
both "Old and Young America," ho would
move that Young America take the lead, and
if there wero any points that the advance
thought impregnable or were afraid to attack,
he would bring the main force to bear against
them, so that nothing should be left standing
that would in any way conflict with their in
terest involved in tho present conflict, and
therefore moved that R. Wallace be called up
on to address the meeting.
The .speaker' appeared upon the stand and
commenced by acknowledging hisutter inabil
ity to' say anything in support of his party .
lie adverted briefly to the Kansas and ebras
ka bill, but unfortunately this question was of
too great magnitude for his comprehensive
geniu3, lie, therefore, cut the subject short by
stating that one of the orators of the Whig
meeting tho preceding week, had asserted
that popular sovereignty v.a3 a grand "hum
bug." Tha Orator touk his seat and Barret
was again loudly called for ; ho responded by
saying that there were some more specimens
of Young America who would address them,
he therefore moved that Mr. Sacketts take the
floor. That individual, however, thought it
prudent to decline, well knowing that the
team to which he waa hitched was not very
strong at backing up hill. To make good his'
deficiency he observed that there were other
persons present who would undertake to put
i'cm' through safe, so ho moved that Dr. Wm.
A. Koto tako hold of the rope. The Corporal
was very much elated that he had the privilege
of standing before such an audience, as the ad
vocate of the principles of the Locofoco dy
nasty. .
He immediately brought his gun to n deal
level, end fired a terrible broadside into the
Natives and Know Nothings- In his zeal to
expose the mysterious foe, he forgot, eventu
ally, to give the followers of Bradford their
portion, but the Know Nothings got jesse.' .
He represented them as the allies of the
Whigs, and instead of coming out openly and
above board to battle against the great Lacofa
ca party, they might be seen sneaking and j li
king round in the alleys and by-paths, pig
pons and chlken-coops, in cellars and in gar
rets, layiug their plans to defeat their cppo
nants and rido into office, or subvert tho insti
tutions of pur country. After divesting himself
of this exposition, he brings another charge to
pile oa to the Whigs.
He somehow or other conceived the idea
that the whig3 had got on to the abolition
platform, and between the Know Nothings
and abolitionists, their song is down with the
'Catholics,' and up with the 'niggers,' any
thing and everything so they get into offic ?.
At this critical juncture, the Dr. thought it
prudent to withdraw, and as he was doing so,
I began to look round to see what havoc the
big gun had mad?, but not perceiving the ef
fect of the discharge, I naturally came to the
conclusion that the load had gotintohis breeches.
The Judge then appeared, to patch up old
sores, he said that he was glad that Young
America had made such a complete "bust up,'.'
and he would follow in their wake as "Young
Amorica," and it took but a short time 10
demonstrate tho truth of his assertion.
After giving the Know Nothings a broad
eide, and expressing his desire that the next
election would kill them so dead that the res
ttrccHon would never reach them, which consti
tuted the base and substance of the harrangue,
he concluded by telling an anecdote of the
jackasses in the Democratic party, and of
Benjamin Rash Bradford's "Bull.'
lAbout this time the meeting "busted" up
and I bngae to leave, perfectly satisfied that it
.was a perfect failure OBSERVER..

. The "Flatorm,'? a Democratic campaign
sheet, published in the office of the State Prin
ter, for gratuitous circulation, is sent out by
thousauds into every part of the State, under
frank of the office holders on the hill, at an im
mense expense to the tax-payers of the Com
monwealth'. For misrepresentation and scur
rility, the "Platform" is about equal to the
"Democratic Union," or the "Iron Gray," pub
lished here in former years. This JeiuLical
electioneering document is printed under tho
direct supervision of tho Administration, and
is circulated broadcast over the State, w ith a
view of poisoning the minds of the people, and
misrepresenting and falsifying the position of
the Whig candidates. The circulation of this
infamous sheet will cost thousauds of dollars,
and the people of the State will have to "toot
the bills." The Heads of Departments and
their Clerks arc all busy, in sending, out the
"Platforms," instead of attending to the le
gitimate duties of their offices. Telegraph.

Department cf Common Schools.
Harsisbcrq, September 6, 1854.
To County Superintendents: As much mis
appreheusion very strangely prevailes in re
gard to the construction of the thirty-sixth
section of the School Law, your attention is
respectfully called to its provisions and the
necessity, for making prompt explanation. .
The section in question provides, that "as
soon as the Schools of any district have been
kept open and in operation at least four months
subsequent to the first Monday in June prece
ding, the President of the Board of Directors
(or Controllers) shall certify the same, under
oath or affirmation," acm and that upon the re
ceipt of such certificate, together with the re
port required by the twkntv-thiri section of
the act of 8th May last, the .Superintendent of
Common Schools shall draw a warrant for the
share of the Stale Appropriation to w hich such
district is entitled. Many Directors, and oth
ers, have most strangely construed the provis
ion quoted above, to mean that the certificate
of the President should set forth, that the
Schools were kept opeu and in operation four
months during the School year which expired
on the first Monday. in June, 18o4. This con
struction is erroneous. The provision is clear,
that the certificate must set forth that the
Schools have been kept open, ic.,four months
subsequent to the first Monday in June prece
ding the time r.t which the allidavit i3 made.
It is difficult to conceive how there can be
no doubt as to which June is referred to. The
last June, is of course meant. In tho pres
entinstance.thecertificates and affidavits must
set forth that the schools have been kept open
and in operation four months between the first
Monday in June, 1851, and the first Monday in
June, 18-V5. ; . . - .
A difficulty is in some instances raised as to
what is meant: by: "the Schools" that is,
whether the affidavit can be properly made,' un
less a School has been opened and kept in ope
ration four months in every part of the district
where one may be deemed advisable The law
will be fulfilled, and hence the affidavit may be
properly made, whenever every pupil of the
district has had a reasonable opportunity of
obtaining four months schooling.
Und?r the law of IS 19, the districts were en
titled to a warrant for their pro rata share of
the State Appropriation, whenever they made
report of their operations under the law tho
previous year, and certified that they had lev
ied tax sufficient to put and keep their schools
in operation three months for the year to which
the appropriation npplied. Under this provis
ion, gross frauds were committed by making
false reports, when no Schools had been in ope
ration issuing duplicates and nevercollecting
them, or any part of them not keeping the
Schools in operation as the law required em
ploying incompetent and immoral teachers
and not requiring proper branches to be taught,
ac, and insome instances expending the State
appropriation for making roads and other ille
gitimate purposes. Hence the provision iu
the present law, that the Schools muse be kept
open four months in the manner reqired by the
several provisions of the act of 8th May, 1851,
before the appropriation will be paid. When
the reasons for its adoption are understood,
the provision will no doubt be approved by
every honest man, and particularly by the
friends of Education by Common Schools.
As extensive misapprehension prevails on
this subject, it is suggested that it would be
well for you to make a full explanation of it
through your county papers.

Missouri on Kansas.
We have the St. Joseph (Missouri) Gazette
of the Cth inst. It is a Democratic paper pub
lished on the western line of Missouri and of
course close to the eastern boundary of Kan
sis. Wc find in it the following:
"Emigrants are pouring into Kansas. Many
of them, we learn, from the States. Missouri
ana are wide awake; scores of them have gone
;:nd are still going into the territory, llun
d;eils, we learn, are going in from Arkansas
and Tennessee. Most of those who are set
tling in Kansas from the western free States,
sucii as Indianna and Illinois, are in favor of
making Kansas a slave State. Kentucky too is
turning out her due proportion of emigrants
for Kansas, all of whom are in favor of making
it a alive. State. H-'c think there is but little
doubt that Kansas will be a slarc State, while
we believe Nebraska will be free..
Pennsylvania. A private letter just recei
ved from Pittsburg, dated the 11th, contains
the following, which confirms our previous
advices from all parts of the State:
"Loco-Focoism is most decidedly defunct
in this part of Pennsylvania. In tlie Conven
tion which met here a short time since for the
purpose of nominating a County ticket, "thirty-live"
of the delegares, in all about one hun
dred, are openly opposed to the reelection of
Bigler. In one of the wards of the city two
avowedly Anti-Bigler Delegates were elected
by a vote of eighty-one to eighteen for the Big
ler Delegates.
"You may set down this county as good for
amijority for Pollock of 5,000 and upward.
A. 1". Tribune
CCTGen. Cass, in a fcprjech before tho lato
State Convention of Michigan, thanked God
that he lived in a free State! He ought to
have thanked God, also, that the men of 1787
had more conscience and less political pliancy
than he has. They could not be misled by
such futil pleas as are used to justify the Ne
braska bill, but prohibited Slavery in Michi
gan by an act of Federal power which he refu
ses to imitate or sanction, and so secured for
him tho freedom which he afibcts to bo so
thankful for. :

held in Washington, D. C. on Tuesday eve
