Dc««,„ by JelTccoa. In the Argus or Tuesday last we find the following: Democrats prefer tint statement of the principles of Democracy as given by Jeffers,,,, in bis inaugural address and endorsed by the Democratic party of to-dav. Those are the principles the Democratic party have support ed from the beginning and they will not desert them now when most rudely trampled under loot by the dominant party. Dare the Press publish Jefferson’s statement Of Democratic pruciples and thus allow its readers to com pare them with the acts of its own party? We think not. Having suggested that our contemporary republish an article from the Press, he replies in Thursday’s Issue: The Press asks us to publish its column-and a-nalf leader on the Democracy as it was and as it is. We fully appreciate the modesty of the request (oarticularly as the Press declined to publish Jefferson’s statement of Democratic principles which would not occupy a quarter of a column), and we are sorry to be obliged to say that in our opinion wo have ail abundance ot much bettor matter for the space it would require. Our contemporary is exceedingly out in bis reckoning, in supposing we were afraid or de clined to publish the extract from President Jefferson’s first inaugural, to which ho reiers. The truth is, to borrow a very common West ern phrase, Jefferson is “our hold,” politically speaking. He was the founder of the democ racy to which for long years we have been de voted, and to tho defence of which we have brought what little of talent we possess. Jefferson was a thoroughly anti-slavery man. He despised the institution and all its legitimate fruits, from the depths of his sold. Ho believed in the people, had faith in tho people, and opposed all combina tions, aristocracies, oligarchies, monopolies and parties that weie gotten up or that had grown up in opposition to the best Interests of the people. Such was Thomas Jefferson. He hated treason and ignored traitors, and hence, though Aaron Burr was Vice Presi dent under him, he was opposed to Burr, regarded him as a traitor and an enemy of the people, and was charged by Burr and his friends with organizing the influence that brought the arch rebel of that day to trial. The friends of Mr. Jefferson of the ptesent age, for the last half dozen years, like him, have been opposing traitors, while those very traitors and their friends, in the North as well as the South, have all the time claimed, like Burr and his friends, to be the true guardians of Democracv! The Argus thinks we are afraid to publish Mr. Jefferson's words. The truth is, when we wrote the article on “Democracy as it was and as It Is,” we regretted that we had not the extract referred to be fore us, that we might place each of its emphatic propositions in plain contrast with the Democracy of to day, and in the absence of it we felt the disadvantage nnder which we necessarily labored. But as our neigh bor has misinterpreted the act, we have taken pains lo look up the extract, and herewith we give It word for word, simply dividing it into sentences, and prelacing each article of this succinct. political creed by a numeral in brackets, for tho convenience of utter refer ence. The extract Is from the first Inaugural of President Jefferson, and reads as follows: ■‘About to outer, fellow-citizens, on the exor cise of duties which comprehend everythin'' dear and valuable to you, it is proper you should understand what I deem the essential principles of our Govornment, and, consequent ly, those which ought to shape its administra tion. I will compress them within the narrow est compass they will bear; stating the general principle, bat not all its limitations. U-] "Vqual and exact justice to all men of whatever state or persuasion, religious or no iitioal; * [2.] “Peace, commerce, and honest friend ship with all nations, entangling alliances with none; . L;i J “The support of the state governments 111 all their rights, as the most competent ad ministration lor our domestic concur us, and tho surest bulwarks against anti-republican ten dencies; |4.J “The preservation of the General Gov ci union t in its whole constitutional vigor, as the sheet anchor of our peace at home und saiety abroad; , l*j “A jealous care of the right ot elections by tho people; Lu.j A mild and safe corrective of abuses wmch are lopped by the sword of revolution where peuca‘4e remedies are unprovided; L7.J ■ Absolute acquiescence in the decisions of the majority, tho vital principle of republic* lroui which is no appeal but to force, the vital principle and immediate parent of despotism; [«.J ‘A well disciplined militia, our best reli ance in peace, and ior the first moments of war till regulars may relieve them; ’ |9. j ‘it he supremacy of tho civil over the mil itary authority; [10.] ‘ Economy in the public expense, that labor may be lightly burdened. [11.] "The honest payment of our debts and sacred pieservaiion of the public faith; [Ei.J “Encouragement of agriculture, and ot commerce us its handmaid; [13.J "The diffusion of information, and ar raignment of all abuses at the law of public reason; [14.] “Freedom of religion, freedom of tho press, and freedom of the person, under the protection of the habeas corpus; [16.] "And trial by juries impartially select ed. “These principles form tho bright constella tion which has gone before us, and guided our steps through an age of revolution and refor mation. The wisdom of onr sages and blood of onr heroes have been devoted to their attain ment. They should be the creed of our politi cal faith, the text ot civil instruction, tho touch stone by which to try the services of those we trust; aud should we wander from them in mo ments of error or alarm, let us hasten to retrac e our steps, and to regain the road which alone leads to peace, liberty and safety" Mr. Jefferson has laid down other maxims of equal importance; for example: “A wise “and frugal government which shall restrain “men front injuring one another,” and which “shall leave them otherwise free toregulate “their own pursuits of industry and improve ment, and shall not take from the mouth of “labor the bread it has earned.” There doctrines were laid down by the au thor ot the Declaration of Independence, for a time of peace, as “the text of civil instruc tion,” and in such times ot peace, with no dangers threatening the overthrow of the in stitutions and principles to the attainment of which ‘-the wisdom of our sages and the blood of our heroes had been devoted,” he would not—nor would his followers—depart from them. At such a time he could say: “If there “beany among as who would wish to dissolve “this Union, or to chango its lepubiicau form, “let them stand, undisturbed, as monuments “ot the safety with wh.ch error of opinion “may be tolerated where reason is lett free to “combat it.” But Mr. Jefferson was a practical man as well as a profound theorist. His “essential principles of government” were, as we have said, "the lext of civil instruction,” to be ap pealed to when the ciyil functions of the gov ernment were undisturbed by rebellion, in surrection or war. As he said, he “slated the general priuelple but not all its limitations.”— One of these limitations he did state with em phasis, in a letter to Mr. Colvin in 1810, as follows: the question you propose, whether circum stances do not sometimes occur, which make it a duty in officers of high trust, to assume authorities beyond the law, is easy of solution in principle, but sometimes embarrassing in practioe. A strict observance of tlie written Taws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen; but it is not the highest. The la we of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obliga tion. To lose onr country by a scrupulous ad herence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who arc enjoying them with us; thus ab surdly sacrificing the end to the means. When wicked men, like Aaron Burr in 1805, or like Jefferson Davis in 1861, conspire to undermine and overthrow the Government, which “should be preserved iu all its consti tutional vigor, as the sheet anchor of our “peace at home and safety abroad,” Mr. Jefferson would deal witli them in no kid glove or milk-and-water spirit, for to the ques tion whether an executive officer was justifi ed at such times “in seizing notorious con spiritors,” he emphatically answered: “There “can be but two opinions; one of the gnllty “and their accomplices, the other of honest “men.” Having shown the Arpus that it entirely misjudged in supposing we dare not pub lish the political creed of Mr. Jefferson we trust that paper will now give its readers the benefit of the Bam* extract*,without mutilation or abridgement. We recollect that during a political canvass some three and a half years since, our coutempoiary attemptel to Rive what It was pleased to stylo “Jetferso.i's Touchstone, and with a preface conveying the impression that ho was fairly presenting “the essential principles of government” as laid down by the Illustrious statesman of 1801 he commenced with the proposition number ed 13in the above,and studiously excluded from the “touchstone” all that precedes that sen tence. Will Le now repair the wrong lie then did and atone tor tiro imposition practiced upon his readers at that time, by giving, un mutilated and uuabiidged, the touchstone by which we are willing to test the Democracy of to-day, and by which the friends of that Democracy should be wilting to stand or fall? 1 he “Werl«l” nud ili«- Negro. When we speak of the World In connec tion with tho Alricun race on this cont ncnt, we don t mean tho material or the spiritual world, and much less the religious world; hut we have in view the New York World, which claims to bo 'the great Democratic oigau of this country. A great change has indeed come over the spirit of its dreams! W ho hugs the negro now? Who pia^s loud dalli ance now? Who coaxes and wheedles now ? “liout-tout, dame Elspelli,” said Tilth, "fear ye nathing Irae Christie; toads keep their ain holes clean. You kirk-folk make sic a lash crio about men shifting a wee- bit for their living. Our border-lairds would ride with few men at their back, if a’ the light-handed lads were out o’ gate.” '■Better they roie wi’ naue than distress the country-side the gait they do,” said dame Elspeth. ■'But wha is to baud back the Southron, then,” said Tibb, if yo tako away the lances and broadswords? I trow wo auld wiescouldnu do that wi’ rock and wheel,and as little the monks wi’ bell and book.” libb racket was right. And how can the Southern negroes be held hack when the lances and broad swords—and more than these—when tl»e plantation whips are taken from the hands of their masters '.' That’s the great question which puzzles Southern rebels and upsets the philosophy of such Northern politicians as manage the World, liut Lite “dough-faces” of the No. lh ate lull of ex pedients and their “ugly mugs” flatten away and gently yield when they come iu contact with sharp corners. Hear, oh ye Democrats and be astonished ye rebels and traitors, how this great organ brands as false ouo of Hie doctrines in your political creed! it says: As regards the popular notion of the odor ot the negro, it may oc positively Slated that be, iu this resj.eet,is like tae wluto—a clean negro beiug free from it, and a foul ouo cursed by it. In view of such a confession, we ask in all seriousness what i3 the once great Democrat ic party to do tor perfumeryFcr more than a quarter of century the wire-pullers of that party have not ceased to prate about that “odor” and to hold it up to the noses of their political friends as the “most villainous com pound that ever olleuded nostril.” N’ow the World gives it all up aud confesses the negro smells as sweet as a white democrat wlieu both keep themselves clean That’s good.— We like it, and are not without hope that the Wurld will yet uiako other confessions equal ly astonishing. It may be hard for the Democrats to give up this odor with which they have pointed so many morals and adorned so many talcs, yet an attempt must be wane to obtain the negro votes, North and South, ior without them they must iorever remain in a hope.ess minor ity where no “loaves or Ashes” are to be had. What great changes a little time oiteu works! How bravely alter.d are the notions of the democratic organ! When the riots took plate in New York city in 1303 when so muuy ne groes were maimed and murdered, tiow did the World tala then? Oh, then tuey did not smell as sweet iu Democratic nostrils as they do now! Of course not. Then- prospects 01 voting over the country were not so bright then as they are now, and hence the wondcr lul change. But this astonishing change in the IKoWcTa opinions is not contincd to ibe ‘ odor” which has given point to so much Democratic wit in past years,hut it goes deeper than the skin and penetrates quite to the heart of the once des pised negro. Hear it, O ye Hemoorats and open wide your eats in wonder and aslonish meut! It says: As a race tho negroes of New York, consid ered from a police point of view, ate a belter class ot citizens tnau the lower grades ol whites. As just remarked, u negro or uogress is sometimes boruglit before the couns for theft; occasionally a black man is arraigned for outrage; and very rarely for drunkenness or inuraer. but as a class, the negroes give the police compara tively little trouble. This ts the almost univer sal testimony mike ui patronaen, sergeants, captains auu supertnlcuucuts; ana wc publish it us at least au approximation to tue truth. ‘‘The uegroes a better class of citizens than the lower grades of whites I” We can readily believe that. They are so, not only in New York city, but in all cities and towns all over the country North and South. But it seems to us that the ‘‘lower grades of whites” must feel that they are wounued in the house of their own triends by such confessions of this journal which aspires to he tho *'head-ceutre” of Demociacy. We would ask the World in all candor, if the Democratic party tioes not receive irow the “lower grades of whites” in New York city a large portion of tho votes which usually make up their thirty thousand majority on election days? We believe sueli is the fact. These are cruel stabs from thi. head-centre of Democracy. To sink its white political friends belotv tire “colored popula tion’ is a severe blow upon them. But we cau assure me managers ol what is I HI ol the Democratic party, that the negroes are so far above the “lower grades of whites-’ in shrewd toss, patriotism and loyalty that their votes cannot be had lor them, however sweet they may call them, or however closely they may hug them. Tho negroes know much heller than the “poor whites” and quite as well us the demagogujs who are now seeking thet*" votes, who their friends are, and dencud upon it they will govern themselves accordingly. Although many of them can neither read nor write, yet their eyes and ears have been open to the history of their country and ei pceially to the record of the Democratic par ty duriug the last few years. Demagogues base not the power to strike them blind nor stop their ears. The Democratic managers put too low an estimate upon tl.e character of the ne groes of this country, if they for one moment suppose they can solt soap them into voting lor a party that lias always kept them in Imud age and would do so now if it had Uie power. The negroes know well enough how the land lies. Among them are hundreds and thou sands ol intelligent, shrewd men whose imiu euce is great over their brethren, and cannot bo counteracted nor overcome by ajl the aits ol demagogues North or boulh. Traitors at one end of our country, or sympathizers at the other, may just as well liaug their harps upon the willows and weep for lost political pow er, as to attempt to play any music that can tickle tho ears ol’tlie negroes, 'i'beir political harps aro strangely out ol tune. Our rcivni war has played the devil with their string ' and its miserable jargon lulls dead on the eaf of the nation. Its power has departed ami the quick ears of the negroes hear nothing in its walling and discordant cadences but the dealli-kuell of the Democratic party. b. Military Salaries.

Some weeks ago we made a request, that some disinterested person, who has the means of a correct opinion upon the subject, would do us and the public the favor to say whether the extraordinary claims put tortli in the ad vertisements of the ‘\New York Plastic State Company,” in behalf of the material they have patented for covering roofs and other purposes, are, or are not true in fact, but as yet our article has called forth no response.— The most which we have been aide personally to ascertain, are 'he statements of a gentle man farmer in Norway, Oxford Co., who in forms us that last summer lie covered the roofs of some of his buildings with the mate rial, and tliat il answers the descriptions put forth iu the advertisements, which he had no ticed in the N. E. farmer,at Boston. He pur chased the requisite quantity of slate Hour of a licensed manufacturer in Sskowhcgan, which he mixed w ith coal tar, to the cousisteucy of common lime mortar, and, alter covering tire roots with paper leiting, applied the piaster very thin with a trowel; from that time to this it has been impervious to Water, ami Is not affected by heat or cold. lie thinks of applying it to his bam the coming sprio".— Other persons in Norway, we understand, have used it with like success. Ho says it costs about as much as roofing w ith the licst pine shingles. Of course, if it hardens into solid slate, it must last much longer, and be a protection to the building from lire lulling up on ii. We are inclined to the opinion Lhat it is no humbug, but that it may be found a val uable thiug. Iu our former article we express ed the suspicion, lhat if tire particles ol slate .were held together by the viscid proporty of the coal tar, that property would disappear with the evaporation of the tluid under the in fluence of the sun and weather, and that then the slate would disintegrate and crumble to pieces. Other persons, it seems, have enter tained the same suspicion; for we notice in the N. E. Farmer of March llth, a.communi cation from J. M. Alien, the clerk ot the com pany, who answers this objection suited by Mr. Norman Ntone of fitch burg, Mass._ The testimony of Mr. Alien is Interested, and not therefore such as wo have solicited; nev ertheless, we leel it due to tbe subject, since we have introduced it in these columns to let our readers see wUat lie says. \\ e therefore give below the gist of Us reply to Mr. Stone: "Will the Plastic Slate dissolve, or the parti cles ot state separate from cacli oilier alter .lie Ur has all passed away? Well, 11 niuk it must do one of two things. It must gradually sepa rate, or it must gradually solnliiy. if the par ticles oi slate separate, fund they surely will unless there is something besides lur to hold them together) theu it is but a temporary cov eimg; but if they unite- ami petrny so as to compose a solid out ot mustic, teen it must be permanent and of lUestiiimli.e value. At this l'biut hundreds of intelligent men have stood. They say—‘‘this j oint must be settled utliimj tiveiy or X wont invest my money m jt" "Prove it.

They are solid, strung, slate stone, binding defiance to time ul.u tua elements. The suspicion ot decay cannot uo conjured by your utmost cdlorta. It is aUsotuiedy stone, an., slate stone at that. This was done by natuie's process alone. Ar tificial heat does well. This inkstand front Winch i dip was formed aud baked aud has held ink lor one year, yet l kuow it is not as strong us solar heat would havu made it-but it is strong enough to honi ink forever. Hut one critic says, "i want to see a roof lhat has been covered with it a good many years he'ore 1 will believe.” Very well. Ail you have to do is to wait. Get your life insured ami wait; there are huudrees of roots of Pius u- »|at« “ow growing older, yea. by year, and you il liavo time enough to see them iu tinv years. * l lie laot is, Mr. Stone, all you want to know is, that thii mastic really does change to slato sumc by the action of sun and air. Tnat is the main point, li it do, s not, then regard it as temporary anil of no more value than wooden shingles, except for its li re-proof qualities.. it it does, ihcii regard it as aniviig me beneficent revelations oi our lieavcuiy kutoer, lor the comfort of his children in tuo latter days, when the world shall bo incompar ably more populous and will need all these lately discovered elements of comfort and wealth and many others yet to be revealed.
