It will be remembered that the Taritfof 1842 was repealed by Congress four years after its establishment. When this repeal was made, the opposition to the Democratic party were as violent in their denunciations of Democratic j members of Congress, as they are now of tlmse j who voted for the much abused Kansas Nebraska ; Bill. Yet the very politicians who raved and : swore so terribly at the passage of the Bill re pealing the Tariff of '42, and cursed David Wilmot so bitterly for lending it his support, are now warmly advocating Mr. VVilmot's claims to the Governorship of Pennsylvania. We give below a number of extracts from the leading Whig Journals, published at that period, which j will show how vehement the Whig party of Pennsylvania was in its hostility to the present Abolition candidate for Governor; [From the Harrisburg Telegraph, July 15, 1546, then published by Theo. Fenn who now edits the Lancaster Independent, a Wihnot pa per.] "But one British Free Trade Tory "was found in all Pennsylvania and that was "WiilllOt of Bradford. The execrations of "every friend of Pennsylvania, will fall upon "and follow him, until he reaches that place "where the worm dieth not and the fire is not "quenched!" * # * * * "His (Wilmot's) INFAMOUS TREACH "ERY should be revenged by disowning and L • • j.™ * L L fr,n """ P P"* UTC "NAME AND HIS DEED WILL STINK "IN THE NOSTRILS OF EVERY TRUE "HEARTED PENN SYLVANIA N FOREV "ER." [From the Miners' 1 Journal, September 19, 1546, then as now published by Benjamin Bannan, being also at present an advocate of Wilmot for Governor.] "IT WOULD BE A DISGRACE TO THE "STATE TO RETURN WILMOT TO -CONGRESS." [From the Berks and Schuylkill Journal, Ju ly 11, 1846, a paper now warmly supporting Wilmot for Governor.] "Among those who voted for the -Id Valorem "Tariff Bill, was Mr. Wilmot,of Pennsylvania, i '\ I.oeofoco tree trade rene "gatle from the Bradford dis trict." [From the same paper, July IS, 1846.] "The name of WILMOT should be held up "to the SCORN Sc CONTEMPT of every free. "man in the state. The man who for the sake "of party, or SOME PROMISED REWARD, "betrays his constituents by supporting a measure "so disastrous toNheir dearest interests, IS UN "FITTO BE THE REPRESENTATIVE OF "A FREE PEOPLE." (From the York Republican, Jlug. fj, 1846, then edited by Thomas E. Cochran, who was last Fall a candidate on the Jjbolition State Ticket, and who is now a supporter of David Wilmot, for Governor.] "He who can hereafter cling to the skirts of these TREACHEROUS leaders, (including VVilmot among the class,) who can confide in their representations, or yield to their influence, IS UNWORTHY OF THE NAME AND PRIVILEGES OF A FREEMAN." [From the .Vorristown Free Press, July 8, ISIG, a Journal at present supporting Wilmot, and edited by the same man who wrote the fol lowing:] "Even Pennsylvania could furnish ONE LO "COFOCO (WILMOT) TO VOTE AGAINST "HER BEST INTERESTS." | From the same paper, Sept., 2, 1846.] "Wilmot, the TRAITOR REPRESENTA TIVE in Congress, * * * has been marked "by his betrayed constituents. * • * This "is just. The laboring men of the North must "no longer put their trust in NORTHERN "MEN with SOUTHERN PRINCIPLES." Such was the language of the Whig Press toward David Wilmot in 1846. Then they beslimed and bedaubed him with the harshest and filthiest abuse. Then they denounced him as a traitor to his couutry, as one whose "name and deed would stink in the nostrils of every true hearted Pennsylvania:! forever." No lan guage was strong enough to daguerreotype their hatred of the "Free Trade Renegade." No punishment, in tireir eyes, could befall the "British Tory," adequate to his deserts. What do they say of him now 1 They laud him as the coming Messiah of Pennsylvania's greatness and glory. They fall down at his feet and worship him, and stealing "the livery of the court of heaven to serve the devil in," they emblazon his black banner with the inscription, "God and Humanity!" "Like the dog that re- ; turneth to his vomit again," they embrace the man ujion whom the sluices of their blackguard ism had incessantly poured their filth for years and years. Bah! who would tallow in the lead of men so inconsistent? Who would trust demagogues so unsteady, so reckless, so unprincipled? John Ahip, Esq. The above named gentleman, it is well known, is a candidate for the office ofProthono tary. Personally , we have nothing whatever to urge against his claims; politically, we have many objections to make against him. He is the representative of every ism that is at pres ent arrayed against the Democratic party. He was sworn into the Know Nothing Order in this town, and although he tells Anti Know Noth ings privately that he has left it, yet he has never by any public act, given any assurance that he has renounced its doctrines. He receiv ed and accepted the nomination oi the Know Nothing Abolitionists, and therefore, is the en dorser of their fanatical and dangerous creed. He stands before the people the nominee of a faction whose battle-cry was last Fall and is, to this day,' Anything to beat the Democratic Par ty!" He is the candidate of the men who slan ered and reviled the great and good Buchan an, calling him "Ten Cent Jimmy" and 1 heaping upon him all the vile epithets of their j fish woman vocabulary. He voted the Union Electoral Ticket, last Fall, and thus identified i himself with the sectional agitators whose fond i est desire it is to break down the Democratic I party. How can he, therefore, have the effron tery to ask Democrats, to support him? How is it that he is not ashamed to declare to Demo crats, as he did to a certain one a few days ago, that the man who did not vote for Jas. Buchan an, was not a true man to his country ? Why does | he say, when it suits his purposes, that lie is as j good a Democrat as any body else, and that he does not C3re a straw about any candidate but jJohnAlsip? Democrats, the reason of his present conduct j toward you is obvious! He knows well enough 1 that without your votes, his is a hopeless case. I He is, therefore, anxious to secure them. He j flatters you like a sycophant—he electioneers j with you in the most artful manner—he allows i no opportunity to pass to excite your prejudices against his Democratic opponent. His game has been planned by the Abolition leaders. H- is an instrument in the hands of men that hate your principles with all their soul. His tri umph they would consider their triumph. Let him beware! Let him remember that it is heaping insult upon insult to ask Democrats to vote for him after lending his name to their ene. ' roies lor the purpose of its being used in opposi tion to Democratic men and measures! Let him remember that if he persists in his present mode of electioneering, the defeat that now stares him in the face, will be rendered still more disgraceful and disastrous, bv his daring to outrage the feelings of Democrats in askine them to support him whilst he is the nominee of their bitterest enemies, the Know Nothings and Abolitionists! "TEN CENTS A DAY." What has become of this electioneering slan der made use of so extensively by the enemies of Mr. Buchanan and the Democratic party? We hear not a breath of it. Has shame at last tied the tongues of the revilers that used it, or are they so fearful of being overwhelmed in the tide of popular indignation aroused by their falsehoods, that the)- dare not open their mouths? Ye foul-mouthed traducers of James Buchanan —ye charlatans and hypocrites—who last Fall strove to prejudice the mind of the laboring man against the greatest Statesman now living, answer what has become of your "Ten Cent Jimmy" slander? Mr. Buchanan has been President since the 4th of M arch last, and labor ers still receive as high wages as ever they did, if not higher. So it seems that the great "hue and cry," you raised about Mr. Buchanan being in favor bf reducing the wages of laborers, was only a humbug—just as all your other hobbies are—negroism included. Oh, ye mountebanks and falsifiers! Answer, what has become of your story about "TEN CENTS A DAY ?" SLIGHTLY STRETCHED. Major Tate, the Democratic candidate for Prothonotary, said of his opponent, in a public speech, in Cumberland Valley, a few days ago, that he (Mr. Jllsip,) rides four political horses, referring, when he made the expression, to the fact that bis opponent pretends to bealwavsof the same political party as the individual with whom he is electioneering. That is, when talk ing with an Abolitionist, he is an Abolitionist, with an "American," he is an "American," with an Old Line Whig he is an Old Line Whig, and with a Democrat, he is a Democrat. Mr. Alsip, we understand, now goes about com plaining to the people that Major Tate said that he is a rich nabob and drives a coach and four! We heard all that Major Tate said pn this subject, and it was merely as abovt stated, that Mr. Alsip rides (our political horses, the Aboli tion, "American," Old Line Whig and Demo cratic. The last, however, in our opinion he will not ride much lo his benefit, as it will throw him assure as his name is John Alsip, especially if he continues to 'stretch Major Tate's statements as he has done in this instance. TELEGRAPHIC. —PhiIad'a, Sept. 30th, iBf>7. —EDITORS Gazette: —City Banks suspended, pay out their notes. Pennsylvania Bank par. Interior banks three discount—feeling better and I think worst over. BEWARE! BEWARE!! The Opposition will, doubtless, attempt, as usual, to circulate false stories in reference to • * I Democratic candidates and principles, immedi ately before, or on, election day. Beware of such fabrications! Let no Democrat be deceiv ed by the representations of any of his political enemies. Let every friend of our glorious cause, be vigilant in this particular. TURIN OUT! TURN OLT!! Let every Democmt so arrange his private' affairs, if possible, that he may be enabled to go to the polls on next election day. Let there j be "a long pull, a strong pull, and a pull alto gether," for the candidates of the Democratic party. Now is the time to cut off'the last head j of the Hydra of Abolitionism. Turn out, Dem- j ocrats ! Turn out!! THEY DARE NOT DO IT. Some weeks ago we charged that every nam on the opposition County Ticket , in this coun- : ty, is the supporter of David Wilmot, for-Gov- ; ernor. We, then, dared them, or an)' one of them, to deny it. Sufficient time has elapsed for them to reply, but they have given no re sponse. They are silent as the grave on that . subject. They dare not define their position on the Governor question. If they did, and did it honestly, they know very well, that not a; Hazlehurst man in the County would touch them. That "accounts for the milk in the co coa nut" of their silence. Remember, That the opposition County Ticket is compo- j sed wholly and entirely of Wilmot men. Re member, also, that that ticket is the loster-chiid ofthe men who have hitherto been incessant in I their abuse of the Democratic party and that > : the candidates upon it, SAMUEL J. CASTNER, JOHN ALSIP, JAMES S. BECK WITH, . GEO. R. OSTER, DAVID SPARK'S, THOMAS IMLER . | are the nomi nees of the bitter and uncompromising enemies 1 of Democratic principles. THE MONEY PANIC. A terrific storm has swept over the monetary world, scattering failure and ruin in its track.— Banks that were supposed to be entirely solvent and sound, have failed, or suspended. A gen eral prostration of business is, of course, the re sult, wherever the financial affairs of the coun try have been affected by the crash. We believe, the all Phi adelphia Banks with the exception of the Bank of Pennsylvania,have suspended specie payment. Likewise all the Pittsburg banks, except the Bank of Pittsburg i and the Mechanics' Bank. The reason oft hi trouble in matters is ' simply the unsound system upon which our ■Banks are founder/. Let that he thorough I v j investigated and re-modelled, and we shall nev j er more be thrown into such a chaos of pecuni < ary mishaps. Let the inside affairs of the banks jbe thrown open to the light of dav—let there ■ be a monthly, or weekly, exhibit of their con ! tion, made under oath by their officers—so that j we need not leap in the dark when we take i Bank-bills—and all will be well. In order that our banking system may under- I go a thorough revision and correction, we should I elect HONEST MEN to the next Legislature. ; And in this connexion it should be always borne in mind that the policy of the Democratic party, has ever been in favor of curtailing and nar rowing the privileges of banks. Gov. Pollock has issued his proclamation to convene the Legislature on the 6th inst., for the purpose of having legislative action upon finan cial affairs, or, as some think, to legalize the suspension of the banks. We consider this calling together of the Legislature an en ti rely unnecessary and uncalled for proceed ing. The session cannot continue over a single week, and consequently no deliberate ac tion can be taken upon the important and in tricate subject which is to be considered. The result will be hasty legislation, and unnecessary expense to the people. Surely it is high time that venal Abolitionism ceases its reign in our State Capitol. Keep it Before the People. Thai whilst David VVilcnot is the candidate of a party which has tried its utmost to give the negro the right to vote in Maine, in New York, in lowa and other states; he also endorses the doctrine that proscribes the Foreigner and the Catholic, thereby showing that lie esteems the BLACK above the WHITE man. KEEP IT BEFORE THE PEOPLE, That David Wilmot in all his speeches, nevr breathes a word about the interests of our Commonwealth, not a syllable about our greedy corporations, our corrupt legisla tures, but talks only of a subject outside the jurisdiction of the people of Pennsylvania, the Kansas question which has been a deadand buried issue ever since the triumphant election of Mr. Buchanan tothe Presidency of the U. States. KEEP IT BEFORE THE PEOPLE, That the Democratic Canal Commissioners saved to the Commonwealth, la* spring, th heavy annual income of upward! of $250,000 by laying before the Democratic Supreme Court, the Bill for the Sale ot the Main Line, which proposed to repeal the Tonnagt Tax of the Pennsylvania Railroad Compasy, which a mounted last year to the sum abovr specified) which Bill as far as it related to tie repeal o' the said tax, the Supreme Court pronounced void and of no effect. KEEP IT BEFORE THE PEOPLE, That the Democratic party has aiwavs been opposed to the indiscriminate clattering of banks: holding such a course to be ruinous to ' the interests of the masses and destructive of the very basis of Commerce and Trade. KEEP IT BEFORE THE PEOPLE, That in view of these things it i the duty of every citizen who regards the welfare of the j Commonwealth, as well as his own individual interests, to vote for WILLIAM F. PACKER,. and ! the nominees of the Democratic party. THE NORTH AROUSED! THE DEMOCRATS OF LIBERTY IN MOTION!! Tuesday, the 22d of September last, was a day long to be remembered by the citizens of Liberty. A meeting of the people of that township, favorable to the election of Gen. Packer and the nominees of the Democratic par ty, was held at Stonerstowri on that day. A delegation of Democrats from Hopewell {which j hy the way, was composed of a glorious set of!

i men) were in attendance at this meeting. The j whole number of persons present was upwards jof two hundred and fifty.' Great enthusiasm j | prevailed, and every Democrat present felt as sured of coming victory. The officers of this meeting were as full ows: President, George F. Steel, Esq.—V ice Presi dents, Isaac Kensinger, and John A. White, E-sqs.—Secretaries, George Rhoads and Jacob I Kensinger, Esqs. Speeches were made hy B. F. Meyers, Geo. H. Spang, Esq., Hon. Win, P. Schell, Maj. Tate and Major Jacob Cresswell. After the j last speaker had concluded, the meeting adjourn ed, every body being satisfied that Liberty will 1 be '-all right" on next election day. . __ GREAT MEETING OF THE DEMOCRACY OF SOUTHAMPTON. On Saturday last, the gallant Democrats of j Southampton Tp., met in Mass meeting at j Chaneysville, in that township. The meeting | was held in the grove adjoining the village, where seats had been prepared for the large crowd in attendance. Michael Mills, Esq., was chosen President: Daniel Roland, David Roland, Asa Houser, Joshua Pennell, James Elder, Hezekiah O'Neal, Edward Northcraft, William Adams, Mark Houser, Thomas Leasure, Elisha Smith, and Joseph Barkman, Vice Presidents; and Hugh Wilson and Trlghman Northcraft, Se cretaries. Speeches were made by B. F. Meyers and Maj. Samuel H.Tate. The meeting was full of life and vigor. The Old Guard of De mocracy in Southampton is aroused! A glori ous result for Democratic measures and candi dates, w ill take place in this township, on the second Tuesday of Ocf>. next. The good citi zens of that region will no longer follow, to any extent, the lead of mea.whose party organ publishes statements branding them as "drunk ards," "ignoramuses," &.c., kc. The large meeting which Messrs. Jordan aud Kooutz held of this. That meeting was composed of seven of their own partisans (two of whom had come lrom Monroe tp.,) and twelve Democrats! At the Democratic meeting there were present nearly one hundred Democrats. Hurrah tor Old Southampton! DEMOCRATIC RALLY AT CLEARYILLE. The Democrats of Monroe, held their town ship meeting at Clearviile, on Friday the 25th ult., and organized, on motion of Matthew- Murray, Esq-, by the appointment of David Evans, Esq., President: Jesse Veach, Jonathan Horton, George Vonstein, IVm. Nycum Esqs., Vice Presidents: and Jacob Fletcher, Oliver Hor ton, and Andrew Steckman, Secretaries. The meeting was then addressed by Hon. Job Mann, in an able and effective speech, in which were truthfully portrayed the true characters of the various candidates before the people, as well as of the political issues at present dividing the several parties. Mr. Mann was followed by B. F. Meyers, who was succeeded by Major S. H. Tate, when the meeting adjourned, with much good feeling. Ttie Democrats ul Monroe are a determined hand of patriots and wili do them selves honor at the coming election. Democratic Meeting at Louisville. This meeting, notwithstanding the fact that there were no hand-bills posled for it, was such as to reflect great credit upon the people of Union Township. It was large and respectable in number, besides being respectful and at tentive to all that was said and done. It was organized by the appointment of the following officers: President, John Conrad Esq.: Vice Presidents, John B. Boyer, Frederick Stiffler, Matbias W alter, Adam Curie, Henry Corle, Joseph Walter and Solomon Fickes: Secretaries, Casel ton Ake, John Shull, Michael Shaffer and Francis Beard. The meeting was then addressed by Gen. Bow man and O. E. Shannon, Esq. Many of the ladies from the surrounding neighborhood graced the meeting with their presence. "In Union there is strength," depend on it. A. The Democratic Meeting at I*at tonsvilte, On Wednesday, was well attended. The School House was full, and the meeting characterized hv the same animation and lively interest that appears to have taken hold of the masses who are opposed to the dodging, trickery and bribery of the opposition. It was organized by Major Patton, as fol lows; Hon. Joseph B. Noble, President: Jacob Deet er, Daniel K. Burger and Daniel Lingenfelter, Vice Presidents; and John B. Flock, Esq., and Christian Kochendai fer, Secretaries. The meeting was then addressed by O. E. Shannon, Esq., and Gen. Bowman, and then adjourned with three hearty cheers for the tick ets, from lop to bottom, as proposed by the \ President. Ifthere is any splitting, or breaking updone in this country, (and we know ot some) it will be bv the honest men of tIMP opposition, who are disgusted with the acts of their leaders, as well as their candidates, and who vv ill take a stand fir all time to come on the side of Democracy j and truth. There is such a thing as candidates ' running the thing in the ground a little. VVoODUEiiUY. j Mass Meeting at St Clairsville! | GRAND RALLY OF THE DEMOCRATS IN OLD ST. CLAIR ! !

Alter the organization was effected the meet. ■ ing was addressed by G. H. Spang, Esq., O. E. Shannon and Gen. Bowman. ; A hole has been made bv the black car of abolitionism in the ranks of the opposition in j St. Clair. Like honest men. those who could j not be bought nor bribed, are coming over to the i side of truth and consistency. Let them come, j We like to see men.nave the courage to re nounce doctrines which they have held, when i they hrd them tube wrong. AN OKSECVCK. From the Montgomery (Ala.) Mail, Sept. 17. ! ATItOCJOIS ATTEMPT AT POISONING. One of our subscribers from Pike county in ; formed us yesterday of a most Horrible and a | trocious attempt at poisoning in that county, just below the line of Montgomery, and in the 1 neighborhood of Bruceville. The annals ot : crime will hardly show a more extensive and ! diabolical piece of villainy. It seems that a German or Hungarian, whose | name our informant had forgotten, was on inti ; mate terms with a negro woman, the property !of old Mr. Frazell, one of the earliest settlers ot Pike. This man tiad once been in the em ploy of Mr. F.,and was familar with his pre misi-s. Some tune since he had been detcted in gambling with Mr. F.'s negroes, and Mr. F. had instituted a suit against him. On Saturday evening, 12th instant, he was seen in conver sation with the negro woman above alluded to, at tbe well, although he had received orders from Mr. Frazell never to come about his ■} premises. On Sunday there were some thirty-seven per sons dining at Mr. Frazell's house, of whom about thirty were visitors from the neighbor hood. Alt these became sick soon alter eating, vomiting violently ; and the cook being arrested immediately, on a suspicion of poisoning, at once proceeded to state as follows:—She said that the white man above referred to, while at the well, had given hera vial containing arsenic, which he instructed her to mingle with ''the meat, ihe rn'lk, the hutter"d 'h coffee." He was pailioolarlv desirous that it should go into every aiticle of food, because old Mr. Fraswll was in delicate health, and ate generally very sparingly. The negro woman said she followed the directions of her lover to the mark, that '•alter the old man had taken that, he would hardly prosecute him in that case." The poison was administered, as we have seen, hot too successfully. The whole assem blage of persons w ere put under iis intluence ; and at the last acounts six had died from its effect. Old Mr. Frazell died about sunset of Sunday, the day of the poisoning. His over seer's wife and two children, Mrs. Cloud, a widowed daughter of Mr. F., and Mr. F.'s grand daughter, died the next day. Several others w.-re lying in a?critical condition, and doubt less there will be more victims of this awfully fiendish crime. Mr Jack Frazell, son of the old man, hap pened to be out of meal on the day of the poi soning, and sent to his father's and borrowed a bushel. All who partook of this, including a brother who had declined to eat at his father's —having come in alter some of the company had gut sick—were more or less alTected. Alter we had written the above, our inform ant, Mr. J. M. Johnson, of Pike, called on us again, and gave us the name of the prisoner, which is Comiska. Mr. J. further states that the infuriated people of the neighborhood have burnt the negro woman, and will perform the same service for Comiska on next Monday. * In the meantime he is salely lodged in jail at Troy. He neither denies nor admits anything. WHAT DO THESE THINGS AIEAX I We find the following in a late nun ber of the New York Evangelist: "V ermont, one of the most purely agricultu ral States in the Union, exhibits sad evidencttof religious indifference. The annual report of the general convention in that State, discloses the following fait, published in the Congregational (N. H.) Journal: "More than 20,000 families in Vermont hab itually neglect all public worship ; only about one-fifth of the people in the average attend upon evangelical worship, and four-filths of the inhabitants on each returning Lord's day are absent from the sanctuary. What do these things mean? Making all due allowance for the ne cessary absence of those who, in the Provi dence of (Jod, cannot be present, there ought to be at least three-fifths instead of one-fifth of the people at pubic worship. Where, then, are the 150,000 souls that ought to be in the house of (Jod every Sabbath ? What are their thoughts and deeds on God's holy day V' The Boston Courier has the following com ments on the above: "The New York Evangelist (a religious paper inclining to anti-slavery) ought not to ask; "What do these things mean ? as i{ the reason were not perfectly obvious. That abolitionism would inevitably lead to such a sad result has been preached upon the house-tops. The Courier, with other conservative journals, has never ceased to urge entreaties and warnings upon the subject for a year past. Many of the clergy, with a z--al quite surpassing their re ligious ministrations, have entered into aboli tionism in the pulpit, directly or indirectly; and out of the pulpit have too often set examples of partisanship to their people. Abolitionism is not religion ; but, like all other fanaticism, it is an absorbing delusion. The human mind can not be' full of one engrossing topic and find room for another. The consequence is that abolition ism in Vermont, and else* here, has excluded Christianity. The process of operation is—first y lukeuarmnw, then neglect ol religious or dinances, tljen disbelief. And yet the New York Evangelist, adopting the report of the convention, innocently asks, What ,to these \ things mt/tn V y THE FEELING IN PENNSYLVANIA. VVe take the following from the Ferry iPenn svlvania) Democrat : "Wherever Gen. Parker has addressed a democratic meeting, the peoplpfiave turned out i in great numbeis to greet him, and manifested the liveliest enthusiasm. On the contrary., wherever Mr. Wilmot has appeared, the meet ings were dull, and the turn-out remarkably' 1 small. At Holltdavshure, Huntingdon, ! Chanihersbitrg, recently, their meetings were : hut lizzies. What <fc these signs betoken? Do they not plainly point out that Gen. Pack | er is to he our next governor, and that the peo ! pie are heartily sick of this everlasting slavery j agitation, auri desire to give the men who are lat the head of it a merited rebuke? Penhsyl j vanians are too loyal to th" Constitution 11 place in their gubernatorial chair a black-republican i agitator." ! The Philadelphia Argus savs : "IVII mot appears lobe making poor headway in the west. His abolition harangues dies not please the people, and he meets, therefore, with | so much coolness and indifference that he has abandoned some o| the appointments made for ! him tospeak. He was announced for Clearfield and several other places, which he has failed to | meet, having evidently become sick and dis j heartened with his prospects." DO BANKS MAKE MONEY PLENTY? One of the arguments urged in favor of our pre sent paper money system, is that the Banks make j money plenty. When do they make money j plenty—in a season of scarcity , panic, pressure, ;orin a season ofexpansion and abundance? If I the Banks have the power to make money plenty, they have the powei to make it scarce whenever ' it is for their interest or their convenience to do : SO. But do the Banks make monpy plenty, free ' gratis, for nothing? Not by any manner of means. They are not so benevolent and patriotic as that. Those who use their promises to pay, have to pay | real value for them. Paper, which has no intrin sic value except what it is worth by the pound tor rags, costs the public as much as gold and j silver. There is not a greater fallacy extant than that contained in the idea that Banks make money plenty. They make real money scarce bv j locking it up in their vaults.— rfrgus. WHAT BLACK RHPCBLICAXISM THINKS or Poon MEN. —The Black Republican candidate for State Treasurer of Ohio is Alfred P.Stone, the >aine gentleman who once made use of the j following expressions : "Every laboring man ought to wear a red | patch on his back, so that he could be designated ; from respectable people." At a public supper, he gave the following toast:—"WlNE—A luxury, thank God, none but I tlie wealthy can enjoy." Such aristocratic llunkeys always meet with favor from Black Republicanism—the same party that would place a negro on an eqnaiity with white men. Getysburg Compiler. WHAT NEXT? WHY NOT?—We SEE il stated as a (art in one of our exchange papers, that the Chicago Ledger, a full blooded Black Republican advocates the nomination of some negro for the Presidency in 1860. What next? Why not? Why should not "birds of a feather flock together?" why should there be the slight est hesitation or repugnanceon the part of white negroes to voting for niggers of anoth> r color- Let the|ant;-slavery fanatics nominate a "culled pusson" as their next candidate bv all means i There would be "an order of nationality" about it peculiarly lefreshing—especially in warm weather.— Phila. Argus. D<> NOT CONDEMN HASTILY. Be patient wilt) your erring brother, tor God is very patient with yon, and it is your duty to imitate your Father in Heaven as much as possible. For one or two acts that may be proved to the wrong, do not condemn and cat out forever a beloved brother. You may not understand the whole case, and if you were faithfully and prayerfully to visit that brother as Christ has labored with vou, he might be saved. We cannot always see into the heart, and our judgment would perhaps be condemned as often as approved by our Saviour. Instead ol casting stones at an individual, we would often, if we knew and felt as Jesus does, sym pathizing, say to the erring, "Go and sin no more." We are called upon to exercise not judgment so much as meicy and love.— Jeremy Taylor. Gift and Retail Rook Store! NOW OPENED TWO DOORS WEST OF THE WASHINGTON HOTEL BEDFORD, PA.
