Friday Morning, January 3, IH6S.
In order to understand the following,
it is necessary for the reader to know
that SECRETARY SEWARD has contrac
ted with the King of Denmark, for the
annexation of the island of St. Thomas,
to the United States, and that his Ma
jesty, KING CHRISTIAN, has determin
ed to leave the question of the transfer
of the island to our government, to the
decision of the inhabitants of the is
"But CHRISTIAN IX insisted that
his faithful West Indians should have
their choice, and thereby it may turn
out that he has saved the Senate the
necessity of ratifying the treaty, and
the House the trouble of voting upon
an appropriation. There are many
reasons why the inhabitants of St.
Thomas might hesitate about changing
their condition. The Government of
Denmark is mild, and the St. Thomas
ians have the disposition of their own
affairs in their own hands. Their port
is almost a free port, the duties being so
low as to be slightly more than nomi
nal. The result is, that they have a
brisk trade with all parts of the West
Indies, and the port is a stopping-place
between the United States and South
America, and between Europe and
South America. They are doing well
under the flag of Denmark, and if they
know as much as we do, they will
doubt whether they could do better by
adopting the stars and stripes. They
will incur thereby a heavy tariff, a
frightful national debt, an excise,
heavy taxation, greenbacks, and a sus
pension of specie payments ; they will
gain the right to send a delegate to
Washington, and have political quar
rels. No advantage can ensue to St.
Thomas which will balance the disad
vantages. The King of Denmark
would pocket seven millions of dollars
by the transaction, but his West Indi
an subjects get not a penny of the a
mount. They have, therefore, little to
gain by the transfer, and it may be that
they will refuse to ratify the bargain,
and thus while they flatter CHRISTIAN
IX by an expression of their willing
ness to change their allegiance, they
will relieve Mr SEWARD of a deal of
Can the reader guess the source of the
sentiments expressed in the above quo
ted article? " Charleston Mercury,"
say you? No. " Richmond, Enquirer f"
No. "iV. Y. Daybook?" Guess again.
4 4 Brick Pomeroy V Not at all! That
article is clipped from the editorial col
umns of that most abject of all news
paper toadies to the present Radical
Congress, that quintessence of double
distilled, rectified and bottled-up "loy
alty," the Philadelphia Inquirer ! Now
just think of it! The idea of a "loyal"
newspaper declaring that "there are
many reasons why the inhabitants of
St. Thomas might hesitate about"
joining their fortunes with the "best
government God ever gave to man !"
Isn't it awful? "The government of
Denmark is mild," says the Inquirer.
Does it mean to insinuate that the Dan
ish despotism is milder than the len
ient rule of our Radical Congress? It
cannot be! That would be flat "disloy
alty," and, of course, the Philadelphia
Inquirer isabove suspicion on that score.
"Their port is almost a free port."
Does the Inquirer intend to convey the
idea that Free Trade is a blessing to
the St. Thomasians? Impossible!
That would be an argument against
"Protection to American Industry,"
of which that journal is a noted advo
cate. "They are doing well under the
flag of Denmark, and if they know as
much as toe do, they will doubt whether
they could do better by adopting the stars
and stripes ." What, truer happiness
and greater prosperity, under the flag
of an "Old World Despot," than under
the Stars and Stripes of "Free Ameri
ca!" Is'.the Inquirer jesting? "They
will incur thereby a heavy tariff, a
frightful national debt, an excise,
heavy taxation, greenbacks, and a sus
pension of specie payments; they will
gain the right to send a delegate to
Washington, and to have political
quarrels." "Incur a heavy tariff!"
Isn't that exactly what the Inquirer
has demanded for this country ? Isn't
a "heavy tariff" protection to Ameri
ca, and if St. Thomas becomes a part
of the Yankee nation, will it not also be
"protected?" "A frightful national
debt!" Why, do not Jay, Cooke &
Co. tell us that "a national debt is a
national blessing," and is not the In
quirer the organ of those renowned
bankers? How shocking! That "a
great national blessing" should be thus
suddenly and strangely transformed in
to a "frightful" national curse! "An
excise, heavy taxation, greenbacks,
and a suspension of specie payments."
Pshaw! What has "an excise," or
"heavy taxation," to do with the hap
piness of our people? Are there not
plenty of untaxed Government bonds,
and cannot every body,the St. Thomas-,
ians included, invest in these and
thus esrape "an excise" and "heavy
taxation?" As to "incurring green
backs," if the St. Thomasians wish to
avoid that difficulty, let them turn prin
ters. Hut not much trouble need l>e
apprehended on that subject, as the
Philadelphia Inquirer and kindred
sheets assorts 1 us, last fall, that in case
of the election of Judge Sharswood,
grecnlntek* would he abolished. Hence, I
Sharswood having been elected, our
prospective insular fellow citizens need
not fear that if they are annexed to
Yankeedom, they will have to "incur
greenbacks." "They will gain the
right to send a delegate to Washing
ton, and to have political quarrrels."
We are not sure that these are quite all
the rights that people acquire now-a
days, by becoming American citizens;
we insist upon it that the Inquirer,
being a loyal paper, ought not to say
that they are. But are they not e
nough, in themselves, to induce any
foreign people, to throw off their pre
sent allegiance and unite their destiny
with ours? Why, the very fact of be
ing permitted to send a delegate to
Congress, who may sit beneath the
droppings of that humane philosopher
and magnificent patriot, Thad. Stevens,
should be sufficient inducement to "all
the world and the rest of mankind"
to renounce their present governments
and swear fealty to the American Ea
gle. Indeed, viewing the question in
all its aspects, we think the Inquirer's
article is perfectly awful!
THE WAY IT GOES.
Not a tithe of the extravagance and
wastefulness of Congress, during the
past seven years, has ever been told. —
Could the American people look behind
the curtain and note the enormities
which they are made to bear, in order
to maintain a political aristocracy in
luxury and ease, they would cast the
burden from their backs, before the
dawning of another day. But the hid
eous features of "the veiled prophet
of Khorassan," are well concealed. We
do not see the horrible, blood-shot eye,
the thick, leathery and pouched-out
lips, the purple, bloated cheeks, the
livid, corrugated forehead; we only,
occasionally, when one of hisattendants
in a whiff of anger, disturbs the veil,
catch aglimpse of his red, rum-blossom
ed nose. In other words, we, the peo
ple, are not permitted to see the mon
strous schemes and wholesale frauds,
by which the revenues of the country,
our taxes, are almost wholly absorbed,
except once in a while, when Congress
man DAWES is forced to declare that
"more was stolen from the Treasury
in one year," under his own party's
administration, "than was required to
carry on the government four years
under President Buchanan ;" or, when
brother Greeley, in a fit of indignation
at the "blockheads" and "howling
Pharisees," (as he styles the politicians
of his party) lets the cat out of the bag,
though it be only to put it back again.
By the way, Horace has just lately been
permitting the feline extremities to
protrude from the Radical sack. The
claws are just visible:
"For two years, Mr. Foster, of Con
necticut, drew a salary of SB,OOO and
$2,000 for a private secretary, when he
was, by the letter of the law, entitled
to no more than the salary of a Senator
of the United States. Mr. Wade does
the same now. He draws the salary of
Vice-President, and is known as Acting
'Vice-President,' an office not recogniz
ed by the Constitution or any law of
the United States. It is entirely a
brevet rank; the extra pay has been
attached to it since 1865 by courtesy,
and not by right; and so on to the end
of the chapter.
"The Republican Congressional Com
mittee have had in their employ, as
Southern missionaries, for a year past,
a large number of men paid as clerks and
officersof the House of Representatives.
Is there warrant of law for this? If
so, it would enlighten a great many
anxious inquirers to point out just
where it is."
This is from an article published in
theiV. Y. Tribune, a few days ago.—
We refrain from comment, for our
purpose is merely to lay before the
people the evidence of Radical extrav
agance and recklessness in the expendi
ture of the public money, and to let
them judge for themselves as to the
THERE appears to be some pros
pect of the removal of that miserable
scoundrel JOHN POPE, who now plays
the tyrant over the people of Georgia,
Alabama and Florida ; the same whom
General W. B. Franklin and General
John F. Reynolds declared they would
not believe on oath. The sooner his
official head drops off, the better.
P. S. Since the above was put in
type, we have received the welcome
news that Gen. Pope has been removed
and Gen. Meade appointed in his stead.
Gen. Oril has also been relieved, at his
own request, of the command of the
Mississippi district,and Gen. McDowell
appointed in his stead. We doubt not
that these changes are for the better.
MORROW B. LOWRY, the ruffled
shirt Senator from the Erie district,
says that his party (the Radicals) will
be compelled to nominate Grant for
' President, in order to get a "strength
ening-plaster, nerve and bone liniment
and green goggles" for the "week
kneed, bow-backed and sunken-eyed
Republicans." Morrow knows what's
EUGENE CASSKRLY, Democrat, has
been elected U. S. Senator from Cali- 1
fornia, to succeed John Canness, Radi
cal. Senator Cosserly is sjHiken of as
an able lawyer and true man. He isi
about to years of age.
The effect of the victories gained by
the Democracy, is sensibly felt in some
of the doings of Congress. For instance,
the defeat of the infamous impeach
ment scheme, was undoubtedly secured
by the Democratic successes in the late
elections. Ilad the Radicals carried
their tickets, "the weak-kneed, bow
backed and sunken-eyed" of their rep
resentatives in Congress, would have
been sufficiently stiffened as to the
knee-joints and the vertebrae, and gog
gled as to the visual organs, to have vo
ted for, instead of against, impeach
ment. But their districts having voted
against their party, they quaked and
quailed and could not see the point of
the impeachers. Again, we see it sta
ted, that there is some talk, by leading
Radicals, of taxing Government bonds,
and there is a general hubbub in their
camp on the financial question. Be
fore the late elections, there wasn't a
Radical in all the land that did not
scout the taxing of Government bonds
as rank "repudiation." Thus have the
Democracy brought their enemies "to
their milk." On the negro question
alone, does Radicalism refuse to recede.
Wilson, Kelley, all of the Radical lead
ers, tell us they will not yield an inch
of their ground on Negro Supremacy.
Very well. The people, through the
Democratic party, will give them a
nother lesson. Perhaps, they will learn
to respect the popular will after a little
more of the same sort of instruction re
ceived by them last fall.
THE NATIONAL KAILKOAO-323 MIL EN
A few days ago it was announced
that "500 miles of the Union Pacific
Railroad had been completed west
from Omahaand the bare announce
ment was made the text for many in
teresting facts concerning the history
of this great national enterprise, and
the wonderful rapidity with which its
construction has been carried forward.
The public had hardly begun to appre
ciate the fact that half a thousand miles
of railroad had been built in two years
into and through what had been an
untenanted waste, before the telegraph
told of the celebration of the comple
tion of the 517 th mile, and the public
welcome given to the locomotive by
the City of Cheyenne, which two
months before had no existence, but
which now numbers its inhabitants by
thousands. This fact was also proudly
commented upon as an illustration of
the restleas vigor with which this Rail
road was being built, but while the
people have been readipg these con
gratulatory paragraphs, the tracklay
ers have kept steadily at work, and
the last bulletin announces thecomple
tion of 525 miles. How much greater
distance will be accomplished before
this article shall be seen by our read
ers, we will not venture to predict.
The whole history of this Railroad
is wonderful. It has the advantage of
snch liberal national aid as was never
before given to any private undertak
ing; its officers and promoters are men
of national reputation and large finan
cial experience ; the road is being built
under the largest railroad contract of
which we have any record; the securi
ty offered its bondholders exceeds that
of any other similar loan, as these
bonds constitute a first mortgage upon
the entire road, while the Government
accepts a second lien as its own security
for advances ; the amount of its busi
ness, when the through line shall be
completed, must of necessity be enor
mous, and its local traffic and profits
upon the portion now in operation are
unprecedented. We are sure that the
further information concerning this
National Railroad which will be found
in another column, will be read with
OUR BOOH TABLE.
THE GALAXY. —We have before us
the January number of this popular
monthly. The "Galaxy" is the most
liberal, progressive and catholic of the
literary magazines. Without partak
ing of the narrow partizanship which
makes the "Atlantic Monthly" detes
table, the "Galaxy" ventilates the
politics, as well as the literature, of the
day. We can read such articles as
that entitled "The Political Outlook,"
in the number before us, with respect
for the writer, because his argument is
fair and liberal, though we conceive
him to be mistaken in his views. But
the "Galaxy" has other and greater
attractions than its articles on politics.
We find in the present number an ex
cellent tale by Henry James, Jr., en
titled "The Story of a Masterpiece;"
"American and Foreign Thertaes," by
Oliver Logan; "My Spiritualistic Ex
periences," by R. Frothingham ; "The
Same Christmas in Old England and
New," by E. E. Hale; "Elisabetta's
Christinas," by Harriet Prescott Spof
ford ; "Burgoyne in a New Light," by
W. L. Stone; "Aphoristic Cynicism,"
by Junius Henri Browne, a continua
tion of "Steven ißwrenoe, yeoman,"
by Mrs. Edwards, and last, but by no
means least, the lucubrations of the
"Nebulous Person," with some good
poetry sandwiched among the prose.—
The "Galaxy" also boasts a new cover,
which we consider much more tasteful
than the dutch great coat in which it
was formerly arrayed. Address W. C.
& P. Church, 39 Park Row, N. Y.
THE OLD GUAHD.— The Old Guard,
for January, is received, and fully sus
tains the reputation it has won as sec
ond to no magazine in our country in
popular interest, while it is the ablest
exponent of the true principles of Dem
ocracy. This number opens with an
article by the editor, on "Tricks of
President-Making," followed by a
thrilling historical romance, founded
upon the fall of the Italian States. It
is a romance of great power, translated
expressly for The Old Guard , from
one of the most distnguished of all the
Italian writers of modern time, Mont
everde, and with a detail of the arts
to which tyranny resorts to destroy
liberty, containing a charming love
story. "The Strange Story of Baron
Trenek" is an article of great interest,
and the first chapters of an original
novel, by Miss Nellie Marshall, of
Kentucky, entitled "Dead Under the
Roses," give promise of one of the most
fascinating serials of the current year.
The first of Dr. Van Evrie's new series
of articles 011 "Types of Mankind,"
is on the Caucasian type, illustrated
with a splendid colored picture of a
model man of our race. The article is
of great interest, and worthy of preser
vation for reference 011 this important
subject. The "Book Table," and the
"Editor's Table," which are fully up to
the mark of the best matter and style,
close the number, which is certainly
one of the ablest and most interesting
of the New-Year numbers of all our
magazines. Single copies, 2o cents;
$3.00 per year. Van Evrie, Horton &
Co., No. 102 Nassau street, New York.
LADIES' REPOSITORY.— In noticing
books, we always like to begin with

that the "Ladies' Repository" prints
the finest and best executed steel en

Besides it is the cheapest ladies' maga
zine published. Price $2.00 per year.

BILITATED whose sufferings have been protracted
from hideous causes, and whoso cases require
prompt treatment to render existence desirable.
If you are suffering or have suffered from involun

your general health ? Do you feel weak, debilita

urinary organs, or your kidneys, frequently get out
of order ? Is your urine sometimes thick, milky, or
flocky, or is it ropy on settling' Or does a thick
scum rise to the top? Orisa sediment at the bottom
after it has stood awhile? Do you have spells of
short breathing or dyspepsia ? Are your bowels
constipated ? Do you have spells of fainting or
rushes of blood to the head ? Is your memory im
paired? Is your mind constantly dwelling upon
thissubject? Do you feel dull, listless, moping,
tired of company, of life ' Do you wish to be left
alone, to get away from everybody ? Does any lit
tle thing make you start or jump ? Is your sleep
broken or restless ? Is the lustre of your eye as
brilliant? The bloom on your cheek as bright?
Do you enjoy yourself in society as well? Do you
pursue your business with the same energy ? Do
you feel as much in yourself? Are
your spirits dull and flagging, given to fits or mel

dyspepsia. Have you restless nights ? Your back
weak, your knees weak, and have but little appe

The truo value of Machinery applied to Watch- (
making is not that by its use Watches are made
rapidly, but that they are made correctly. Very
few people know why a Walthain Watch should
be superior to any other. In the first place, at
Waltham the Watch is regarded as only a machine,
to be constructed like any other machine, on me
chanical principles. If the watches are good, it
is because the machinery is good. Of course there
must be no defect in the principle or plan of the
movement—no mistake in the sizes or shapes of
the pieces of which it is composed—nothing want
ing in their properties, and no error in their posi
tions. These points once thoroughly settled, it
rests wholly with the machinery, constructed with
infinite diversity of form and function expressly
for the purpose, to produce the finished pieces.
By means of multyplying guages and microscopes,
tests and inspection for the detection of wear in
the cutting tools, and for faults and flaws in steel
or stone are made to accompany the work in ev
ery stage from beginning to end. As a necessary
result, the watch goes together a perfect machine.
Every part is found to fit properly in its place.
Every pin may be pushed till it pinches, and ev
ery screw turned home. Ins'cad of a sluggish and
feeble action, the balance, even under the pressure
of the lightest mainspring, vibrates with a wide
and free motion, and the beat has the clear ring
ing sound always characteristic of the Waltham
Watch. The machine is a time-keeper from the
This system of watchmaking is unknown in for
eign countries, and is entirely original with the
Waltham Company. The Company claim that by
it they produce watches that cannot be equalled
for every quality which makes a watch valuable.
Simple in plan and correct in principle, the move
ment is not only beautifully finished, substantial,
accurate and cheap, but is uniform in the minu
test details, not easily damaged, and when re
paired always as good as new. There are differ
ent grades of finish in the different varieties of
watches made by the Waltham Company, as
there are different sizes and shapes to suit all tastes
and means ; but every Watch that bears the gen
uii e trade-mark of "WALTHAM" is guarantied to
be a good oue, and nobody need be afraid to buy
