THE >IAN IN LOVE. —Thackery says that
"Vt hen a man is in love with any woiuau in a
family, it is astonishing how fond he becomes
of every person connected with it. He ingra
tiates himself with the maids; he is blaod with
the butler, he interests himself with the foot

gives and lends money to the yonrig g >n at col

otherwise; he smiles at old stories which
would make bim break out in yawus were they
uttered by any one but papa; be bears with the

A Weekly Paper, Devote! to Literature, Politics, the Arts, Sciences, Agriculture, &c., So—Terms: One Dollar and Fifty Cents in Advance.
The general prevalence, all over the country,
of the disease known as the potato rot, has
greatly impaired the value of the crop, and
prevented many fanners from cultivating to the
sauie extent as wis formerly dona. B<> serious
has been the evil to the agricultural interest
that both rnca of science and the practical far
mers batro given much attention to investi_-ititi-'
the cause of the potato disease, and to the dis
c irery of a remedy.
A day, or two since,,we received a letter from
Irwin Sampson* E-q., a very intelligent farmer
who has tilled the soil all the days of his life,
in the rich country near New Wilmington, in
Lawrence county, in which he gives us what he
claims as a simple, and cite <p preventive of the
potato rot. He is safi-ffied, from experiments
which he himself has made, that the following
is a snrc remedy for the evil:
Take a double handful of well rotted or/A
■wood, and scatter it upon the seed potatoes in
the hill, and then cover with earth iu the usual
maimer, and there wiil be uo signs of rot. II >
uiude the disc very three years ago, iu ;t clear
ing, j ist made and planted with potatoes. lie
observed that where the roots of tLe potato
came irt contact with ashes, the hill was entire
ly rotten, but that it adj doing hills where the
roots came iu contact with the old rotten ~A
wood of the clearing, every potato v, is hour:J
and dry. in hills where thpre was neither
ashes nor decayed oak w<x>d, the potatoes w re
about one-half rotten. Taking the hint fnuo
these observations, Mr. Sampson has tested flu
discovery for three )■a;, n-t !<- T-r-r-r
found a diseased potato in the hi!is where the
pulverised oak wood has been applied, and in
patches where there were no decayed potatoes,
the roo*s were fouud to grow larger and heal
thier, and of a better flavor where the oak wood
wis uved, th .n where it was not. Mr 8. is.
but a plain practical farmer, and does not at
tempt to give a scientlfi • reason for this result
but simply announces the fact, and the result
of his experiments. It is well known that the
oak possesses high antiseptic as 1 other peculiar
qualities, as tannin enters largely into its com*
position It i.- for sc*icntisa men to ascertain
what is the peculiar principle which produces
this result. The farmer can av 11 iitnelf of
the knowledge of the fact that it does prevent
the rot, for Mr. Sampson's statements are ful
ly it liable. Every one who cultivates the soil
in this pirt of the c untry at least, can readily
obtain rotten oak wood in sufficient quantities
to make the experiment for himself with all
she potatoes be may plant. The discovery i>
t.n important one, and we hope our readers in
the country districts wiil try the experiment
this seas <u and, communicate to us iu the fall
the result for publication.— Exchange.

"Mother, mother, mother !" sobbed a sweet
voice, in agonizing tones. ' It was dark and
i cold in the low, dismal attic; but close pressed
| to the frosted windows lay the face of Sammy
! Hauurz. His soft hair hong over his tearful
face, and his thin hands clasped the rough
window-sill, and his whole frame shook, as the
keen blast found its. way through the ereviccs
around tLe stone chimney. Ii was it sound you
would never forge!; those half-sobbed, half
toomod words—"Mother, mother, mother!"—
You would have felt thai the lit tie heart was
ready to burst with its unutterahh weight of
sorrow, and that grief might be the companion
of childhood as v.ell as of old age.

Everything, was in order, and Mrs. Haunts, j
the stepmother of Sammy, was sitting placidly ,
before the fire, smoothing the folds of a clean j
apron, and in a self-satisfied manner stroking !
a tabby cat which ly in her :ap.
lier three children were sitting cosily in lit- I
tie chairs by the fireside, aud Mr. Huuntz was
talking with a brother who had just arrived to j
spend Thanksgiving with them.
The wind blew fiercely without, aud once
when an unusual tempest seemed to shake the j
tonudation of the house, the father turned sud- j
denly to his wife, aud said
"Whore is Sammy ?"
"Gone tj bed," said she, tardily.
"What made him go so early 1" asked Mr. I
| liauntz. Ar.d iu a tone which precluded far- j
! thcr inquiry, his wife answered :
"Because he was too lazy to sit up, I sup- '
For a few moments Mr. liauntz looked off
vacantly into a corner of tha room, and then I
offering a pipe to his brother, seemed to forget
! that Sammy had been mentioned.
Eight years before, Mr. liauntz had beeu
sitting by tha same fire side with his first wife,
gentle Sarah Lee. Sammy was upon his fath
er's lap, and Sarah, with her head upon her
husband's shoulder," was talking of what they
would do, when Sammy would bo old enough
tc have a Thanksgiving cf his own. Perhaps
Mr. Huuntz's tneiuory was bringing out those
old pictures in a fresh light; and he may bavo'
paused to wonder if he had changed since that ;
wife of his first choice and purest love sat be- j
side him. However it was, no one know. Men
are often asbauied of their best and noblest j
thoughts, and hide them for fear they be called
unmanly. i

] that "A mother's the same, all the days of her!
j life, but a father chauges when he gets a uew
| wife," we do not pretend to say;, but it was a
i fact that the second Mrs. llauntz and her ebil
j dren wore apparently first ia the thoughts and
j affections of Mr. Ilaunti.
The morrow was Thanksgiving, and from
! early morn had Mrs. Hauntz been busy prepa
ring for the big dinner of the coming "day. *
More than two months before, she hud partly
promised Sammy, that "if he was a good boy,
and behaved himself," be" might go to bis
grandfather L°e s to spend Thanksgiving.—
And the motherless child had planned and"ho
.pod, and beeu happy upon the events of that
day. He had many times gone to bed supper
lev*, and never cried at all, because he felt
asleep thinking of the dinner lie should get at
his grandfather's.
Although but two miles away, his stepmoth
er seldom allowed htm to go there, because as
she averred, " They set him up against her, and
end® bim uglier than ever." But once in a
while, she was obliged to allow liitn to go, for
fear that "people would talk about it." Hhe

A Slate Convention for the People—
Withdrawal of Mr. Todd's Caii.
It will be seen by tho correspondence published
in another part of to-day's paper, that tho sugges
tions made in the News of Tuesday last, in regard
to the "basis of union" for a State Convention in
opposition to tlie corruptions and misrule of the !
Locofocos, arc practically .adopted iu every essen- i
tial feature, and that tho chairmen of the differ- j
ent State Organizations composing tho opposition '
to the present National Administration, have adopt- !
eti the recommendation of the consolidated Com-;
miners of this city, calling a general State Con i
vent ion on the 14th of July next, at ILurisburg. j
That the action of Mr. Swocpe iu this matter, j
will be cordially endorsed by the Americans of the
State, we have no doubt. Indued, we know that it
was at the solicitation of a number of the
most prominent members of our party tbat he has
thus acted, as well as by tho directions ol the mem
bers of the Committee of which he is Chairman.—
Any other course would have been suicidal, re;; .It
ing inevitably in the defeat of the great cardinal'
principles which every member of the American 1
r Organization has at heart. Mr. Swoop a has zod
ously guarded the distinctive interests of the Ame
rican Party, refusing, as wo know, to go into the
I movement on any basis that woutl not recognize
I th Cardinal features of Americanism, and m iking
the withdrawal of Mi. To it's Call, a condition
i precedent to hit action iu the premises.
We have now a basis of union and a programme
on which, as we rem irive i a few days since, th; en
tire people, as opp esed to the Buchinin dynasty,
eun rally, and which every American in the State
caii heartily and cor.liiify embrace as the means
which is to rid us of the te rt ible incubus which ha*
been fastened upon us by the blind adoration of
Loco Focoism.
We shall go into this contest upon a platfottn
embodying the principle of the Crittcnden-Mout
gornery amendment, an 1 the two prominent fea
tures ot Americanism, viz: Opposition to foreign la
™Ci i ICe i tb*: protection of American industry.
With such issues before us, with such raiivingj
cr:,-i as these* and with the cordial an I hearty sup*"- j
port of the entire opposition of the State for tha j
candidates who may receive the nomin ition of this ;
Convention, there can he no fear of the result.
The time lias come when Ihe people have deter- j
mined to take into their own inu la the cure of the j
evils with which they hive been curse J throughout j
the ot Franklin Pierce, and thus?
far dming the term of Mr. Buchanan. Let our |
friends then buckle on their attnor for a new con- j
test, and when the time arrives to elect delegates j
to this Convention, which will, of course, have the j
confidence of every man in the State, unless he be j
a Loco toco; let them select their best men to !
represent them in it. if we do this, ar. I are actu- ]
ated by the same spirit which governed the opposi- j
tion in Philadelphia in the late eitv canvass, we '
shall bur! from power and place in October next, !

ted Pennsylvania, whilst wo shall at tho same lime I
purify our State Administration, and pave the i
way<4or a great success of truly American princi- i
pies in 1860.
The Americans of Philadelphia have on sev
| eral occasions shown ari invincible detenuiua
; lion to refuse to unite with other parties, when
: I here was any danger of a sacrifice of the
great principles for which they have sa long
and so pertinaciously contended. Uuder the
most discouraging circumstance*, fjr tw > yea:>
past, they have preserved their organization,
when there was no immediate prospect of cs
tablishing the measures far which they conten
ded. Without the nanus to carry on a politi
cal warfare, with every advantage on the part
of their opponents, they refused to be coaxed,
wheedled, or scolded from tho advocacy of
measures which they deemed essential to the*
preservation of the insti'.urioßs of our country,
and necessary to the prosperity, improvement
any! iu dependence of ihs l vple.

they wiii contend for still The political, com- j
mereial, financial an 1 industrial independence <
of our ccuutry is a.* d-ar to the American poo-
pie tow 33 it has ever yet beet; and they ate
as much determined to struggle for it now as
they have been heretofore. The union of the
people, which Ins now b:ea fonn J, iuvoire? no
sacrifice of principle u;x>n the part of Ameri
cans, arri will not require them to abandon
their organization. The events of the pas!
year have shown, more forcibly than ever, the
. necessity for the establishment of an Atueri
■ can nationality, and the adoption of an Ameri
can iudeslriial and commercial policy, to pro
tect us from tho iutetfcrcucc and competition •
of the nations of Euror>c.
The great principle, that "the people shall
have the right to form their own institutions,"
Americans- have ever been willing to support,
and are glad to have all who desire the estab
lishment of right and justice to uuite with
(hem. The right of Americans to rule our
country, and to protect it against foreign inter
ference of every hind, and against the intro
duction of immoral elements into our commu
nity, we have not abandoned. The difference
which the American party in I*so, was,
in a great measure, one concerning the relative
: importance of measures. We opposed the re
■ peal of the "Missouri Compromise" as much as
any others, but we considered "Protection to
American interests and resistance to foreign
influence" as of primary importance. Others,
carried away by the Sectional fever which
spread over the land, were willing to yield
; everything else to oppose the outrages of the |
■ Democratic party.
Americans were unwilling to adopt the sec- I
j tloual platform of the Republicans, believing it;
jtoto be injurious and unwise. Time has shown
| that the conservative policy of the American .
! party was right; and when others are willing to f
acknowledge it, and to unite in a common ef- j
fort to resist the tyranny despotic Prcsi- j
dent, we are not so unwise as to repulse them, j
Time, we believe, will shew the necessity for I
i adopting all our mensuiefs, and every day j
brings fre*h, though sad proof to the people
j that they cannot prosper under the unwise !
: system which now curses the country aud des- j
troys the hopes of the people.
The first duty of an American citizeu is to
guard the liberties of his country with a jeal
ous eye, and when the manifest evidence of a
determination to pervert the powers conferred
upon those who ad minister the government ap
pear before his eyes, he caunot hesitate to adopt 1
practicable measures to resist such encroach- I
mcnts. The despotic measures of .Mr. Bucb- j
ansa are too palpablo to admit of dUpute, and
no American who cherishes the free institutions
of his country, oan hesitate as to his duty in
such an emergency. The call for a "People's
j Convention" in Pennsylvania rings ;he death
; knell in the ears of LocofocoLto. It has been
■ weighed in the balauce aud found wanting.—
| Whatever errors men may have committed
heretofore, it will surely be tegarded as tneri-
I torious now, that they are ready to come up to
i the work of rebuking the iniquities of Mr.
Buchanan and his servant?..
Americans should be active and vigorous in
rhir -Torts to strengthen their organization.
No nsettious to arouse and encourage Ameri
cans to renew their efforts for the establish
ment of their principles should bonegleotel.

W 'V. Baotvx, Eq.—Dear Sir:—Jjinee the
English swindle has taken Kansas oat of O-jn
gre-ss and sent it to Kickapoo, the two branch
es scorn disposed to go to work an I dispatch
■uatness, especially as we have agreed to ad
journ on the Trh of June; tut w< cannot pos
sibly transact near all the business that has ac
cumulated on our calendar and in our commit
tees, to say nothing of attending to those great
national interests, which now so urgently de
mand our nitenitdQ —such especially as the tar
iff, nor is there any disposition on the part of
tin south or the administration to do tnythm-
Wwards r storing the country once more t. > a
trade and democracy arc now one and the same
thing. As for protecting and encouraging
American labor, American enterprise, Ameri
can commerce, agriculture a::d manufactures,
the Democracy, which includes the Adminis
tration, had rasher see every forge fire extin
guished, every manufactory spindle and loom
standing idle, every ship lying rotting at our
wharves and every Lardy American thrown out
of employment, as thej all are tore, and nude
to give place to new recruits, especially if
they are believers in the holy church and de
mocracy; what a humiliating condition cur
government bus come too. 1 have endeavored
I'o introduce a measure having for its object
home valuation, cash duties and requiring that
they be made specific on iron end such o f Ler
articles as would be practicable, so ss to prc
vcut the enormous frauds that are perpetrated
upon our revenue a; the same time injuring
our own manufactures, and notwithstanding it
was evidently necessary to do this to protect
the revenue against frauds, this measure was
objected to by the leading member of the Com
mittee of Ways and Means, Mr. Letcher. —
But, may I not as welt say at once that we can
not expect any p. rmauent relief to our indus
trial interests so long as the Democracy (i. e.)
:bo slave interests, control the government.
When ike people think proper to place a
party in power, which is committed to the pro
tective policy, that paity which passed the
Tariff of '42, winch the Democracy wiped cut
as soon as they could, though not until it had
given life, animation and successful activity to
the great industrial interests of the country,
and covered our State with benefits and hits
sings, I say, when the people will da this, then
we may expect a period of prosperity to fal
low, such as followed the passage of that T.u
iff, and not until thou.
The echoes of the rejoicings here and else
where over the accomplishment ot ♦he English
swiudle and attempted bribe, are coming back
from the people, and nuking Buchanan and
his paid flatterers tremble as did the Babylo
nian King when he saw the handwriting on the
wall. York has spoken, Indiuuapolis has spo
ken, and Philadelphia has spoken, and neither
of them in an uncertain voice. Philadelphia
speaks in tones of thunder. The opposition to
this ceutrai despotism here at Washington ate
in excellent spirits, and manifest a most con
ciliatory disposition. Tkcy- have noble leaders,
gallant, able and patriotic. There is our true
hearted, steadfast old friend Crittenden, who
placed himself so high before the nation by his
amendment to the Lecomptou Kansas Bill;
and there, too, is Belt, who is so volt kuowu
to the wholo nation, and ,Siuim:s, the friend
and champion of the working-men, be being
one himself, a working farmer; and the able
and powerful Seward, the able defender of the
rights and interests of free men and free labor "
But 1 cannot uieotiou ali who have distinguish
ed themselves in the Senate, such as Ilale,
Wilson, Collauier, Foot, Fesseuden, Wade,
Hamlin, &\ In the House we Lave also a
host, but to name one and not another, would
be invidious. Six Southern Americans stood
