What Is The Money For
Full Text of Article
The Locofocos of this place have raised three hundred dollars by private subscriptions to aid the election of their ticket. What is the money for? The late Locofoco County Convention passed a resolution forbidding the use of money for electioneering purposes, and the Spirit has denounced the use of money in every issue of that paper since the campaign commenced. And yet in the face of all this, the Locofocos have raised this year the largest amount of money that has been subscribed in this place by either party for many years! We repeat--what is to be done with it? Can the Spirit tell? It will of course come out with a perfect broadside of denunciation against their corrupt and corrupting step. It will of course re-publish the resolution of the late Convention forbidding the use of it, and will read Douglas out of the party for heading the list of subscribers with the enormous sum of $20. We advise the Spirit to use Mr. Douglas's contribution to keep Mr. Douglas from voting for Col. McClure. He has had such a hankering that way for the last six years, that it will require at least that sum judiciously expended on Mr. Douglas to keep him from voting for Col. McClure and against himself.

--We feel proud of our brave, gallant friend, Serg't G. T. A. Nixon, of the United States Army, who is now in our midst--on a visit to his Mother, Brother, and large circle of relatives and friends.
This gentleman, a native of Chambersburg, returned to this place, on Wednesday the 14th inst., after an absence of thirteen years--all of which time he spent in active camp service. He has been connected with the Army for nearly fifteen years; entering as a private and, by marked ability, courage and industry, has worked himself up to an honorable and profitable position.
It will be remembered that at the battle of Buena Vista, in the war with Mexico, he distinguished himself by his intrepid defense of the Battery to which he was attached--under the lamented O'Brian. Since that war closed he has been variously employed by the Government--part of the time he was engaged in the defense of the Texas frontier, from thence he was removed to Fort Riley, Kansas Territory, in the Spring of 1856; where he remained till early in the present year, when he was removed to Fort Leaven worth, also in Kansas Territory.
As an evidence of the desolating effects of war, and the soldier's life, it is not out of place for us to say that of the large company some 90 men, with which he went West, that encamped near this place, on the 26th of June 1846, Sergeant Nixon, and two others are all that survive--the balance have all paid the debt of nature.
The arrival and reception of Sergeant Nixon, was a grand sight. The Chambers Artillery, under command of Col. F. S. Stumbaugh, in full uniform, and hundreds of our citizens were assembled at the Depot to welcome the brave man to his home. The military took him in charge and escorted him to the residence of his mother. Here a scene of affection occurred which we will not attempt to describe. Long live the valiant soldier.
