The Democrat on Protection.
We have no objection to the Democrat
republishing the Free Trade articles of
the N. Y. Evening Post. That paper has
always been a free trade advocate, first as
a democratic organ, next abolition, and
more recently as republican, but by no
means represents the republican party of
this and many other States, which com
prises a vast body of men who believe pro
tection to American Industry alone can
protect the wages of laboring men, and
prevent them from becoming mere serfs,
as they are in Great Britain and other
European Kingdoms. Neither the Post's
nor the Democrat's logic can efface one ma
terial fact, to wit, that while the great
body of republicans are in favor of ade
quate protection, so that the'development
of our iron and other ores can be carried
on with remunerative labor to the work
iugman, the patent democracy has, since
the days of Polk and Dallas, advocated a
system which fostered foreign products at
the expense of home labor. Take iron
and steel for examples : If, the Democrat
would say, British capitalists who pay
from 20 to 70 cents per day for labor, can
furnish iron and steel iu this county for
less than Glamorgan can furnish the for
mer, or Freedom the latter, do not pro
tect them by a sufficient duty, but use
British iron because it is the cheapest.
Such a doctrine must inevitably result in
one of two things—either those compa
nies would have to stop work, and thus
render all the ore banks in this county as
valueless as they were some years ago, or
the wages of all labqr connected with
mining and smelting ores would have to
come down to correspond with British
labor—a labor which knows little of wheat
bread and meats as food.
One thing iu connection with these
subjects is certain, the owners of ore banks,
furnaces, forges, <k.:. iu this region,
will never owe their development and
prosperity to the patent democratic party.

PARIS, June d.—A cowardly attempt
was made th is afternoon to assassinate the
Emperor of Russia while driving back
from the grand review with the Emperor
Napoleon. In the Imperial carriage at
the time were the Czar, his two sons, and
the Emjteror of France.
The attempt was made while they were
returning through the Bois de Boulogne.
A young man, sibout twenty years of age,
tired a pistol at the Czar, it would seem
that the pistol was ov. rloaded, and explo
ded, wounding the hand of the a-.-as.-in.
It is said a bystander threw up the arm
of the wretch sis he tired the pistol, and
that he was instantly cut down by the
escort, and made a prisoner, severely
The Imperial carriage passed on without
halting. It is supposed the villain is a
Pole, for just previous to tiie attempt cries
of " lire la Poloyne /" were heard. The
Imperial party escaped injury. A thous
and rumors are m circulation, and there
is great excitement in Paris. No further
facts are positively known than the at
tempted assassination, the escape of the
Czar, and the seizure of the assassin.

A Paper Boat. —A paper-shell boat,

was tried on the Hudson river on Friday,

concerned it would seem to justify the
prediction that piper will entirely take

WASHINGTON, D. June 4, 'O7.
MESSRS. EDITORS: —In company with
a few friends, 1 left home on the 22(1 tilt.,
for a trip to tiie famous Shenandoah Val
ley. We spent about a week Iu the val
ley, staging and footing it from Winches
ter to Staunton, stopping most of the time
in Rockingham county. Our object was
to ascertain the feelings of the people to
ward Northern people and note tiie price,
quality, and condition of land, with the
inducements held out to buyers.
From the Potomac river at Williatns
po.*t all the way to Staunton the sears and
ruins of war are vet to be seen on all sides.
Fenceless commons, dilapidated stone
fences, and the ash. s and black walls of
destroyed bridges and buildings are still
to be seen on the battlefields of this hi<-
toric valley. True, in some localities, the
people have gone to work again and have
built new fences and erected buildings,
while others are unable to do so, and some
are too shiftless to make any exertion
unless driven to it by stern necessity.
i ne middle class are a generous and
hospitable people and welcome Northern
ers who come among them with the in-
tention of locating there. What is need
e 1 in \ irginia, at tins time, is capital, an
infusion of Northern enterprise, and the
establishment of a good system of public
■.ehoots. The lowest class of whites and
toe I- !'• \'s are, so tar as I could learn,
almost without exception as bitterns ever
,in their dislike of "the Yankees" and
their attaehment to the secession infatua
tion. But they all express themselves as
willing to yield obedience to the laws of
the ( 11 ited States since they have been
conquered by tlie force of arms. In gen
eral, the people are remarkably quiet eou
-erniug tlie war and national at lairs; only
t few of the strongest will drag
the subject into common conversation.
i here is a wide-spread distrust of the
"greenbacks" among Virginians that is

will tell you that "a burnt child dreads
lie tire; we were once caught with a
paper currency and there is no telling
what may happen again." There is more
specie in circulation in Virginia than
with us in Pennsylvania, liecansc a few

Q.uitea number of Pennsylvanians have
visited the Shenandoah Valley with the
intention of buying land, but compara
tively few buy, probably because of the
somewhat, unsettled condition of allairs
and the high prices asked for laud, con
sidering the condition of the improve
ments. Any one who sees what tine crops
of grain and grass grow in spite of the
miserable larrning must be convince t that.

Terrifir explosion of ;i steam
liailcr—brcat S.oss of Life.
A most appalling accident occurred on
Thursday afternoon, between live and six
o'clock, by tiie explosion of a steam-boiler
in a large live-story building in the rear
of Hansom Street, between Tenth and
Eleventh, Philadelphia. The building
was reduced to a heap of ruins in less than
a minute, burying from thirty to thirty
It seems that the engine wanted pack
ing, and several men were sent from the
machine-shop of Mr. Win. T. King, im
mediately opposite, to do the work. They
accomplished this in about one hour and
a half, and then retired, in about live
minutes after the explosion occurred. The
engineer had started t be engine, and turn
ed the water on to supply the boiler. This
caused the explosion.
I pon examining the premises, it seems
that tin north foundation wail was forced
from its position by the boiler; hence the
crumbling of the walls. The joist that
supported each floor fell uniformly, but
the other material, bricks, boards, bench
es, and unfinished work, fell in between
them in one dense mass of shapeless mat
ter. '1 lie scone is described as appalling
in the greatest degree. The near residents
after recovering from the terrible shock,
rushed to the rescue. The piercing shrieks
of the unfortunate men buried near the
surface of the ruins, the stilled groans of
others still further down, were truly
heartrending and appalling, and fairly
paralyzing in their eltects.
Presently, amid all this destruction of
■ matter and combustible material, smoke
was seen curling out from the top of the
pile. The forge used by Messrs. Miller
it Reeder had fired the rubbish. Now it
was that the shrieks of the doomed men
were more terrible than ever. The lire
men were speedily in attendance, and la
bored with herculean strength to rescue
the unfortunates, and one or two were got
out. lint the flames increased fearfully,
and nothing could be done to save the
buried ami half-stilled men.
Besides danger of suffocation, a more
horrible death encroached upon them,
that of lire or scalding water, for it was
necessary for the firemen to apply the wa
ter to prevent a more general destruction.
In a short time the entire pile of rubbish,
with its twenty-live or thirty bodies, was
one mass of fire. The probability is that
some of the bodies were entirely destroy
ed ; those got from the ruins could not i>c
identified except from clothing.
The machine shop of \V. T. King was
used as the reception room of the charred
remains of the unfortunate men. A mill-!
gled mass of headless trunks— trunks
without arms or legs, were piled up there
in one hideous mass. The agony of .sur
viving wives, sisters, and other "relatives i
may be imagined but not well described

Treason Made Odious.
BY J J*<>. A. I'AKXTR, Co. K, 6lli KANSAS Cavalry.
There * nothing, nowadays, I'm sure,
I lint pays so well as treason.
And though I've often wmidcred why,
1 can not tell the reason.
There's Jc-ffy Davis raised a war
Against our happy Nation,
Hut after Ac was gobbled tip
H got a double ration.
He lived in splendor like a prince,
V\ bile honest folks were dying ;
The trultHc* lie had helped in make,
For brcul were daily cit ing.
And while he feigned as President,
O'er all thin fleeting vision.
He starved our soldiers on Belle Islo
And in (lie Libhy prison.
And over this fair land of ours,
\V hers ALL onee lived like brothers,
He scattered desolation wide,
And murdered wives and mothers.
In horrid dons,and Southern pens
Our men were daily dying,
And from their Southern graves to-day
Their blood i loudly eryitig.
Oh ! inay that ery his spirit haunt—
No mutter where he wanders,
May ghastly corpses, lean and gaunt,
Invade lus nightly s umbers.
Oh! may his soul forever dwell
With friends and devils clever;
Ob ! may the darkest pits of hell,
lie AM abode forever.
And nifty the winds, in fitful gusts,

Blow a*lica in Ins lobe! eyes
Forever, without ceasing.
And now a parting wish we give—

This remedy Ims long been cherished by the com
munity for its remarkable efficacy in relieving, heal
ing and curing the most obstinate, painful and long
standing ca-f-.s <>f CowjK, Coll. Influenza. Sore Throat,
Dronchiti*, It hoopiny C'ouijh. Croup, Asthma. Inflamma
tion ol trie Lungi; while even Consumption itself has
yielded to its magic influence when all other means
have failed. Its whole history proves that the past
has produced no remedy of equal .value, as a eure for
the numerous and dangerous pulmonary affections
which prevail all over the land.

of Lungs, and general debility, so much so that our
family phy-i -ian declared him to have a - Seated Con

number of months, hut received no benefit from it.—
At length, from the solicitation of himself and others.

time restored him to his usual state of health. ! thirik

is but justice to say that thejudgmenr thus pronounced

Still, by the improvements lately applied by them
to their Pianos, it is admitted that a more perfect in
