Men, Measures and Principles.
It is the glory of the Democratic par
ty, that none of its leaders is essential
to its triumphant progress. All of them,
from the President to the verriest gut
ter-politician, might disappear from its
ranks to-morrow, and its measures and
its principles would soon secure as proud
a phalanx of defenders as it possesses at
present. However brilliant the intel
lect, or powerful the influence, of the
man who proves untrue to its cardinal
doctrines, the moment he does so, he
falls "like .Lucifer, never to rise again."
Nat all the astuteness of Aaron Burr,
or the genius of Henry Clay, could pre
vent this result of their defection. Not
even the late repentance of the latter,
made grander by the most glorious elo
quence of his time, could save him from
the remorseless verdict of the masses.
The 17th of June last witnessed the
close of the eighth year of the existence
of the Advertiser. We can, with truth,
say, that during the whole time, noth
ing has appeared in its columns which
has not resulted in eventual benefit to
the . -DemoCratic party. We have from
our youth up, been a Democrat. With
all reverence, and not substituting our
own words- for the sacred text, we can
say with Paul, "My manner of life from
"my youth, which was at the first among
"mine own nation at Jerusalem, know
"all the Jews ; which knew me from the
"beginning, if they would testify, that
"after the moat straitest sect of our re
"ligion, I lived, a Pharisee." We have,
sprung from the people, and having toil-
ed aud_struggled with them, know their
"feelings and share their sympathies.—
We have reached our present honorable
position as one of the organs of the de
mocracy of this county through many
trials;Mihfortunes and perils. Our ex.-
perience and constant intercourse with
all the members of our party, in this lo
cality, enables us to know, when we
speak its sentiments, and we shall do so
fearlessly, although here ai}d there a
weak brother may doubt and cavil, or
faint by the way. We know the strength
and weakness of our party in this coun
tyWe have fought its battles too many
years not to know its indomitable fidel
ity to party discipline, party measures,
party principles, and, with due reserva
tion, that is before nomination, to party
men. One of the cardinal features of
democracy, is freedom of discussion.—
We- shall use that privilege, after due
counsel and reflection, without regard
to the man or the subject, which may
be the object of our censure or praise,
We have always done so, and shall con-
tinue to do so.
Let no one, however, think t hat we
intend to renounce our allegiance to
_the President of our party, because we
censure him in one respect. We up
held him heretofore, and uphold him
now to be the best and wisest statesmen
of. his day, Perhaps that very fault
which we noticed last week, better fits
him for his station. We have eenaid.
ered well and long, and surveyed the
past as carefully as our humble abilities
would admit. We cannot be deceived
as to . the force of Mr. Buchanan's intel
lect, or the wisdom of his public acts.
We may as well state here, that we
used the names of Cot. Forney and
Hon. J. Glancy Jones, as we shall, and
have, the .names of any other public
men, without their knowledge.
For the rest, we approve of every
word of the Ostend manifesto, and shall
shortly show by the most satisfactory
proof, that the principles declared in
it, are perfectly consistent with the
rules of international law, and the Li:
sages of civilized nations, since civili
zation has had any existence,. We ap
prove of the foreign and domestic poi.
icy of Mr. Buchanan's administration,
so far as it has been developed, and are
prepared to defend it against every as
sault. We - abhor the principles of
KIM* Nothingisrn.and Black Republi
canism, and shall continue to denounce
them as we have hitherto done,
••Jleving come to the conclusion, from
i long and varied personal experience,
that, as poor Tyrone Posver used to
"A light beast, and a thin pair of breeches,
Go through the - world, my brave boys,"
and the weather being very favorable
to the use,of that article of apparel of
the thinnest possible texture, we.address
ourselves to the future, with entire'crin..,
silence, We advise our readers, and
especially the old enemies of Mr. Bu
chanan, to imitate the cool philosophic
temper we intend to pursue.
Kr Careful observers of events have
noted the glee of the opposition re
specting the sale of the Main Line of
the public works. They glory in the
sale—not because it will relieve tax
payers of their burthens,—not because
our good old commonwealth will be
benefitted, present or prospectively,—
not because it is a profitable sale and
throws lots of money into the treasury,
—for it does just the reverse of all
these good things ; but their joy kllcen
tres in the number of votes the measure
will bring them. They suppose that,
the sale made, from 20,000 to 30,000
voters will at once jump right over into
the Republican ranks. This the great
crowd of them believe, but the shrewd
and far-seeing politicians and leaders of
their belligerant clans view matters in
a different light. They, the leaders,
were actuated by, if possible, still on
worthier motives, than their shouting
masses who want votes. They not on
ly sacrificed the property and interests
of the people, but they also deceived
and betrayed their friends, the humble
members of their own party, into a
measure which they knew would be to
their prejudice; but as it might eventu
ally enure to the advantage of the
schemers, all was well. How Mark
well the scheme.
Gen. Cameron seeks the Republican
nomination for President in 1860. He
is a shrewd, keen, farseeing politician.
His plans have been laid long ago, and
he is already, probably, far ahead of all
competitors. Nevertheless, he will
endure no rival in the Republican ranks
in his own State. The only one that
could be a rival is Wilmot, and he must
be, killed off. Gen. Cameron saw plain
ly long before the nomination that 'Wil
mot would be.the Republican nominee
for Governor, and what better to lay his
Presidential aspirations on the shelf
than a tremendous—overwhelming de
feat this fall. Defeat was certain enough
in a canvass following immediately last
fall's election, but how make it over
whelming, so as to ruin all his future
political aspira lions, and make him em•
phatically a dead cock in the pit. Some
new outrage must be committed—ono
that will drive all votes from the Re
publican ranks but cannot bring any
there. The sale of the Main Line was
just the thing. Even if there were
democrats ever so anxious for a sale
they would not vote the Republican
ticket after the sale, having resisted
that'folly before a sale. Democrats op
posed,to a sale of course were beyond
salvation, if that depended upon voting
the Republican ticket. So the opposi
tion could not gain votes by the sale,
but they would lose them, by the thou.
sand. They could lose 25,000 at least
along the western division of the line,
where the prosperity of the people de
pended in a great measure upon having
the canals kept in a navigable order,
but which the bill of sale permits the
Rail-road company to abandon. Not
one of the votes thus lost to Wilmot
can be made up in other parts of the
state. Wilmot defeated, standing on a
measure apparently so very popular in
his own ranks, and supposed to bring
so many votes to his banners; not only
defeated, but by 30,000 to 50,000 votes,
would bury him beyond resurrection,
and the course be clear for Cameron
and his clique. This effected and the
nomination obtained, other issues would
in the mean time arise, and if not car
ried into the White house he would at
least have had the honor of being a can
didate in 1860.
Our opposition friends can now, prob
ably, 'perceive the clue to a transaction
which would have consigned any one to
a Lunatic Assylum, had he sacrificed
his property in the way the B. R.'s sacri
ficed property of the state, costing
$20,000,000, , f0r $7,500,000, payable—
never! Could any man be considered
sane who owned a house costing $2,000
—had the means to keep it—was real
izing good interest for his-investment—
and sold it for $750, payable 33 years
after delivery of deed ! In the same
proportion and under the same circum
stances was the Main Line sold.

What's capital Black Republican politi
cian he would wake.
DAVID WILMOT'S CHOICE.—A couple
of years ago, David Wilmot, the Black
Republican candidate for Governor, us
ed the following language:
"I am determined to arouse the peo
ple to the importance of the Slavery is
sue, and get up an organization through
which they can get control of the Gov
ernment in '56 ; and if I become satis
fied that these efforts will fail, and that
the people will not assert their rights,
then I'll be d—d if 1 don't join the
party that I think will send the country
to hell the quickest!"
We have but one remark to make upon
this fierce and unctions profanity, and
that is, that Mr. Wilmot has picked and
joined his party.
The Minnesota Constitutional Con•
vention assembled at St. Paul's on the
14th. The Republicans, fifty-nine in
number, met in the Hall of the Capitol,
and the Democrats,forty four in number,
organized a separate Convention in the
Council Chamber. Each Convention
was draftinra Constitution.
CHARLES MEHL, the young man who
shot the son of Mr. John B. Snyder, in
Bieber's brick-yard at Kutztown, on
Thursday last, was arrested on Saturday,
and after a hearing before J. D. Wanner,
Esq., committed to prison. He will he
tried at the August Court. It is now
said that the pistol was fired at random,
and that the sad accident was the result
of carelessness rather than premedita•
Lion. The facts of the ease will of
course be thoroughly sifted at the trial.
The Death of Young Stome.—The
Manchester American has the partic
ulars of the death of young Stowe,
son of Professor and HARRIET BEECIIER
STOWE, by drowning, at Hanover, N
on the 9th inst. He went into the wa
ter with, several of his classmates, to
bathe, and after being in a few minutes
became exhausted and cried out help.
His roommate and another young man
went to his relief, but their efforts
to save him were unavailing. STOWE
sunk but once, and remained under wa
ter about twenty minutes before he,was
taken out.. Life was not then extinct,
but he was,so far gone that he expired
in a few moments. He was drowned
only about four rods from the shore,
and his body could be seen when lying
at the bottom. His remains were car
ried to Andover in charge of a commit•
tee of students, consisting of one from
each class.: The deceased was nineteen
years of age, a fine scholar, and a youth
of much promise.
Four of our distinguished statesmen
have died on, the 4th of July. John
Adams and Thomas .Jefferson• died on
the 4th of JUly, 1826; James Monroe
on the 4th of July, 1831.; and lastly,

CORRESPONDENCE OF THE ADVERTISER
An Old Fogy—Fourth of July Cele-
Ma. EDITOR :-" I guess there'll be bully times
in Chambersburg to-marrow, don't you think?—
bully fighting, bully drinking, bully everything,"
said an old man of seventy to me, on the day be
foro the anniversary of our independence.
"Very likely," I replied, ".I suppose you will
be there to keep the boys in order ?"
"No sar-ee—not me; I never did go in for the
way the people profane the holiest day the eon ever
shone upon. The young people don't know what
they go for except for devilment, and we sensible
old folks stay at home, and thank the Almighty
that we have such a day to remind us of the glo
rious events of '76. I tell you—yes, I tell you—
there was some praying done in that old Congress
Hall in Philadelphia—praying that the Almighty
heard—not such hypocritical praying as they have
in Congress now- a. days, which our political game
cocks got up to make the good people believe how
pious they are ;—yes, the Almighty heard the
prayers of our revolutionary fathers, and Ho an
swered them. This house, this barn, these fields
and meadows are nay own; this valley with its
beautiful lanes and woodlands belongs to me and
my neighbors; and no menial satellite of a foreign
prince have we here as "Lord of the Manor," to tell
us how to act and speak and think—all these bless
ings are the answers to the prayers of our fathers."
Thus spoke the old man, and tears bedimmed his
eyes, and his voice faltered. Again he resumed :
"It was an overruling Providence that raised up
Washington and Lafayette to lead our handful of
an army against the immense hosts of King George.
They called upon Him in times of trouble; on Him
they relied for strength and wisdom—and victory;
and it cants, in answer to their fervent prayers ;
and George, the crazy old fool, had to knock un
der. It was a hard nut for him to crack, and the
effort unhinged his mental powers,
and he became
a maniac. Poor elude! A good lesson for John
Bull. And now to-morrow they are going to have
a frolic in town, thinking to do lionoeto the mem
ories of Washington and the heroes of '76. No—.
disgrace themselves; and, the spirit of
Washington will look down from heaven upon
them with sorrow and displeasure. Washington !
I saw him ones, and —'
" Where ?" said I, interrupting my old friend.
"Why, here in our little Strasburg, at the time
he was sent out to quell the Whiskey Insurrection.
The half of the people here don't know that their
mountain village was ever honored by his pres
ence. 0," I wish I could see his like again, but
which neither you nor I will ever see—no, never,
such a divine figure like that of Washington. I
remember well ; I was a boy, and went with my
father to Strasburg. After a little I saw a very
large man on a white horse ride up to the tavern.
Ho had a great big nose,, a large face, and a bony
frame. I thought he didn't look at all like other
people. His appeeranee, child as I was, struck
me with profound awe. He alighted from his
horse, and my father, who had been a soldier of
the Revolution and knew him, walked up and
shook hands with. 'this strange personage. As
soon as I had opportunity I said to my father:
" 'Who was that big man with the big nose that
you shook hands with a while ago ?'"
°i My son, that was our good General Wash
ington, about- whom I have told you so much.—
Never forget this precious hour in your life's his.
tory ; keep•the image of this groat man always
before your mind; pattern after his glorious ex
ample, and in goodness, at least, if not in great
ness, strive to be like him—and, my son, you will
never be put to shame.'"
"How Tar I endeaiored, in my lifetime to imi
tate the "Father of his Country," I will not say,
except in one thing : I have always been a good
Democrat-0, did you hear how we chased the
Woolly Horse last Pall?
"No," said I, "how did you do it—let's hear?"
"Well, you kno}e the way we always do hero at,
elections, roll up very nice majorities; but last
fall we had such a, dear' bird to shoot at, and we
were bound to do our best. The Union was to be
saved; and in our quiet, democratic way wo set
about the work. . We had the highest hickory pole
for Old Buek in the county. - This was the only
fuss we made: before the election, and because we,
were so quiet the Woollies thought we were dead.
Dead! yes, we ',wore, dead to every thing but oar
duty, and when the great day came we were "alive
and kioking ;" and such a rout as we made-o,it
was glorious three times , told! Then, yen see, it
was a matter of 'pride with us too, to make suck a
clean sweep, because old Buck was brought up
among us; ,we _knew him in his chilithood; he
used, to, shoot squirrels along the mountain here;
and a better shot than him I never saw. He'
thought it a disgrace to miss his aim. He shot
straight ever,sinee, always hitting the nail on the,
head—at the Bar, in Congress, in the Cabinet, at
foreign CoUrts—in the'White House. Ali rand
Mansm don't shriek -any more, and .why ? Be..
cause Buck was elected president, and Beelzebub,
the Man of Sin, the hydra-headed, cloven-footed,
bleckhearted Opposition was routed and slain. I
don't moan the good people of the opposing par
ties, but the leaders add their principles." Much
more had this filteresting old man to say, but—
excuse me, Mr. Editor ) r have already trespassed
on your columns.
Next day was the glorious Fourth, the 31st an
niversary of the ever memorable '76, and in spite
of what the old Man said about frolieing on that
day, I started early for Chambershurg to see this
"frolic." The celebration was opened by the fir
ing of cannon, the ringing of bells, and with grand
martial mash:. Next came an immense train of
cars up the .Cumberland Valley, laden with a liv
ing mass of patriotic fellows from Harrisburg and
Carlisle. Fire companies, from the places just
named, from Shippeusburg, Newville, Greencas
tle, and Waynesborough, poured into the town, at
leastfifteen itrnumber, each preceeded by bands of
music, and their fire apparatus,some of which were
exceedingly beautiful, and all handsomely deco
rated. When all were in procession, marching
through the streets, the scene presented was most
brilliant. The finest spectacle in the entire pro
gramme, however, as an offset to the monotony of
the general parade, was that of a man dressed and
painted like an Indian, seated on one of the en
gines. No one could have perceived that he was
a "pale face" except by close inspection. With
amusing self-possession, he smoked the peace
pipe, as a token of 'friendship and good will be
tween the different companies. Peace and har
mony should always reign among these useful or
ganizations; and whenever anything should occur
to break these pleasant bonds asunder, all should
"Smoke the mama together,
And as brothers live henceforward."
'After parading several hours the firemen pro
ceeded to the front of the Court House, where each
company was preseated with a handsome wreath,
and an address was delivered to each company
separately. Among the speakers I noticed Mr.
Haldeman, of Harrisburg, who so faithfully serv
ed the Democracy in the great campaign ' f last
fall. The speakers were loudly applaued as they
severally left the stand, some amid showers of
boqucts prepared by the ladies. The Declaration
of Independence was read by W. Carlisle, Esq.,
and then followed the Fourth of July Oration by
Mr. Brewer, of Chambersburg. Of this part of
the performance I hardly know how to speak.—
The oration was anything but a spontaneous out
burst of heartfelt patriotism, having been too
carefully written in regard to style and Mere ver
bal beauty. Elaborate, and of fine classic finish,
it was neverthele - ss too much of a romance to be a
portrayal of those stirring realilios—"the times
that tried men's souls." Mr. B.'s style is entire
ly too florid to be pleasing, and while he was de
livering his carefully prepared dreams, the major
ity of his audience were either dreaming them
selves about something else, or paying no atten
tion. When will orators learn to speak to those
for whom it is intended they should speak? for
the instruction of the masses—for the edifying of
"the people," and not for delicate ears, and lauda
tion of newspapers? Yet I would not speak to the
disparagement of this gentleman as a writer and
speaker; he is too popular to be killed by a small
crash; still it is unfortunate that he and so many
of our men of the rostrum have thenisetros too much
in view, while the good that ought too result from
their literary performances is scarcely thought of.
Cicero, the greatest Roman orator of his time, and
alike distinguished for his pride, was always laud
ed' at the close of a speech, as follows : "What a
fine voico,what captivating expressins,what grace
ful gestures l" Demosthenes was as great an ora
tor as Cicero even in external perfection, but he
was also earnest. Listen to his hearers after one
of his thunderclaps: "To arms—let us fight
against Philip !—let us conquer or die !"
- Pardon the digression. In conclusion I would
say that this was the most complete fourth of July
celebration I have ever witnessed. Though so,
many thousands of our fellow-citizens from all
quarters were here assembled, yet the most per
fect order prevailed; which, may Heaven grant,
may ever prevail -on each recurring birthday of
our nation's liberties ! Yours,
Franklin Co., July 11th. PHILO.

sequently every person desiring their taste suited,
need but remember that the Bee }live is the place
The superiority of this Great Hive, aside from
the enormous stock constantly in Store, is also ev
ident from the fact that those Bees assume quite
a different disposition, with regrard to their gath
erings, to what other Bees do : instead of driving
visitors away by flying at them in a haughty
manner, and humming some unintelligible lan
guage in their ears, and send them away lament
ing and crying with disappointment and pain, for
having to leave without getting a bit of good
Honey, and being badly stung in the bargain,—
they are kindly disposed to solicit the friendship,
and cherish the visits, of neighbors and strangers,
and endeavor, in every way, to treat them with
indueements that will make them call soon again.
They cheerfully dispose of any quantity of their
sweet stock, at trifling prices, and never fail in
sending away customers laughing and rejoicing,
with the Great Bargains, and frequently exclaim
ing, with overwhelming joy, "Behold this is the
place for Honey l"
It will also be found that the bees of this great
Hive have'not been lying idle during the winter,
and pa:Genially since the first appearance of
Summer, when a portion. of them immediately
flew off to the flowery East, where their gather
ings never failed to be the most choice of theseas
on. Having just returned from their third tour
this Spring, from the city, they are prepared to
show their numerous friends the handsomest se
lections ever brought to this Borough, embracing
in variety a collection of every article in theirline
that necessity, fancy and-fashion can conceive.—
In short, their store is complete, and an invita
tion is extended to all who believe in the truth of
honey being sweet, or value the satisfaction of
having their taste suited. Step into the Bee
Hive Store. The large swarms that are continu
ally moving to and fro, in and out, around and
about, is another evidence that their labors have
not been in vain, or remain unappreciated by a
patronizing public,. The merits of this great
Hive have not only become apparent at home,
but its fame is also fast spreading itself through
out the land.

PROP. O. J. WOOD—Dear Sir take pleasure in
hearing, voluntary testimony to the magic effects of your
wonderful Hair Restorative. As far back as 1836, my
hair commenced falling off, until the top of my scalp be
came bald and smooth as glass, and it has continued to
fall for a great many years, notwithstanding I have used
many celebrated preparations for restoration. Seeing
your advertisement. I was induced to give your article
a trial, and, to my utter astonishment. found, after a few
applications, that my hair became firmly set, and assent
ed a glossy and beautiful appearance ; and by the time I
had used a quart bottle, my bald head was covered over
with a young and vigorous growth of hair, which is now
from one to two inehcsin length, and growing fast.
Yours, truly, 'HENRY GOODRICH.

Gents :—Nothing but a duty and sympathy thatl feel
to communicate to others that are afflicted as I have
been, would induce me to give this public acknowledge
ment of the benefit I have received from Professorß'ood's
Hair Restorative. When I first commenced using it, my
hair was quite gray, and in spots entirely bald. I have
now used the Restorative about five months, and my
hair is entirely changed to its original color, brown, and
the new heir is over three inches in length on the spots
where it was bald. I have also been much gratified at
the healthy moisture and vigor of the hair, which before
was dry,"and it has ceased to come out as formerly.
Respectfully yours, Sm., Mrs. It. A. STODDARD.

with the effects of the Restorative, 1 am free testate that
my hair had become quite thin, and entirely WHITE. I
have, for the last five years, been in the habit of using
dyes but hearing of the extraordinary effects of this arti
cle, I was induced to try it. My hair has been restored
to its original thickness, and also to its former color,
Which is light brown. Yours, respectfully,

have been excellent in removing inflammation, dandruff,

rangements by which all who desire to settle or I
purchase a home can do so.
The Farms consist of the beg limestone soil of the
most superior quality for farming, in a rapidly improv
ing place, into which -an extensive emigration is now
pouring. The property is located in Elk county, Penn
sylvaum. in the midst of a thriving population of some
10,000. The climate is perfectly healthy, and the terri
ble plague of the west fever is unknown. it also has an ;
abundance of the best quality of Cual and Iron. The
price to buy Wont is from $3 to $2O per acre, payable by
instalments, to be located at the time of purchasing. or

Discount for every sum of $llO and under. paid in ad
ranee, a discount of five per cent. will be allowed, and ,
for over $lOO a discount of 10 per cent.
In considering the advantages of emigrating to this lo
cality, the following are presented :
First—The soil is a rich limestone, capable of raising •
the heaviest crops, owing to which this settlement has
attained its present great prosperity.
Second—lt is the centre of the great 3 , .;orth West Coal
Basin, and is destined soon to become °neer the greatest
business places in the State. It will supply the great
Lake market, (according to population and travel the
greatest in the Union?) It has five workable veins. 4
the best Bituminous Coal, amounting in the aggregate
. to over 22 feet, which makes 22,000 tons of coal under
' each acre. This will make the laud ofinesthuable value.
The eminent state geologist, Dr. Charles T. Jackson,
of Boston, has made a geological survey of the land, and
analysed the coal, the iron ore, and the limestone. This
report, together with maps, will, be furnished to inqui

working from Erie towards our land in the western di

No case of the fever ever haring been known to occur
in this settlement. It is not like going to the backwoods
of the West, among perhaps intolerant people, where
there is no society, churches, or schools, where the price
of land is high, and where the emigrant, after being us

sickness, and pain, and perhaps ruins his health and
that of his family. But bete is a thriving settlement,
having three towns. containing churches, schools, ho

last year amounted to ever two hundred million feet of
lumber. In a short time : owing to the coal, it will be
