Eels—which are abundant, and of good,
quality in Cumberland and Westmoreland
and lose in Scotland—are regarded by the
people there wiih as much disgust, as
snakes. Skate, which, is in high
tion in „England, in Ireland' is hardly Byer
eaten except by the fishermen. Scollops,
on the other band, which are reckoned a
dainty in Ireland, are hardly ever eaten in
England ; and, though they are, abundant
on many o£ the coasts, few, of the English
have an idea that they are eatable. The
The cuttlefish (the kind that produces the

The,hedgehog'pa one thinks of eating
in England except the gipsies and some
who have joined them, and who report it
as better than rabbit.
The sailors in the English and Dutch
whale'ships do not eat the flesh of whales;
but those in French Whalers (with their
well known skill in cookery) are said to
make a palatable dish of it.

HOttiefiesh, which most Earopeanswo'd ,
refuse to eat, except in great extremity,
is preferred by the Tartars to all others ;
and the flesh of the wild ass' colt was es
teemed highly by the Romans. As for
pork, it is on religious grounds that Jews

up Alie .conscience of a mortal,
has Ane, is the debt due the '
printer. Itpresseshardernn one's bosom
than An eightmares!galls the soul, frets
and chafes, every ennobling , sentiment,
squeezes all the fraternal 'sympathy from
the heartvand leaves than the our
face of a roasted potato, .
mak who wrongs the printer out of
a single red cent,Pan never expect to, en
joy,the comforts of 'this sv*rld, and may
well have 'his doubts of Snags happiness
iR any „other.
Oh you ungrateful , einners I. If you
have hearts moistened by the flow of mer
cy,instead- of gizzardslilled with gravel,
take heed what I say unto you, if there
be any among you in, this congregation
who halt not settled hie account ;with the
printer, go and, adjust it, immediately, and
beable to hold up year head in society
like, a giraffe; be respected by the twise
and good, free from tortures of- guilty
conscience, the mortifications of repeated
duns, and escape from the possibility of
falling into the clutches of a lawyer,which
is. -one and the same thing, if you are: hon

and pay the same. ,
You willinet wait till to-morrow 1 it is but
the receptacle of unredeemed promises ;
it is an addled egg in the greatness of the
future ; the doctor's - and the creditor's
curse. If you are dishonest, low-minded
sons of Satan, I do not suppose you will
pay the printer, as you have no reputa
tion to lose, no character , to sustain, no
morala,to cultivate. But let me tell you,
my friends, that if you do not do it, your
path will be strewn with thorns you will
have to gather your food from brambles ;
your children will die of dysentery, and
you never . will enjoy. the blessings of a
healthy conscience.
I once called on a pick. man Whom the
doctor had given up as a gone case.
I asked him if he bad made his
with his Maker. lie said 'be thought i he
had sqOared up. I then inquired if he had
forgiv,en his enemies. Be
,replied yes. I
then salce4 him if i ho kaiid paid the printer.
He then hesitated.rt Moment, and said be,
thought he owed him about two dollars
and ; liftY cents, Which he ! desired sboad be
paid before.he bid goodbye to this 'world.
Hiiiiesi r e was immediately grstified, and
from that memerithebeeeme convaescent.,
He is now living in the e.iijoyment of geed
bealth,and prosperity, at peace with hie
conscience, his God and the world.
Let him be an example to you,, my
friends. Patronize the printer, take his
paper and pay, him in pdvance, and your
days will be, long, upisn the earth, and

Gies. McCi.nwor,-,-The Buffalo Courier
says there have been 'two critical periods
in our three years' history of the war. The
first occurred on the day of the first bade
of Bull Run. Unquestionably, had our
ems been succeseful'on that field, the re
bellion would have collapsed ; the project
of its leaders would have lkeen still-born.
Again, when McClellan wds called to what
was really the leadership of the nation,his
plan for the suppression of the now vastly

enlarged and invigorate rebellion, was
beyond a doubt cotnple ly adequate to

crushed treason and preserved the Union
to a mathematical certainty. Look over
its details and see-if a ' point be omitted,
or if in , a single direction the great game
is not laid out with a masterly knowledge,
of the elements involted and a consum
mate foresight which, surely, would have

The Abolition Doctrine.
Thaddeus Stevens in a recent speech in
,Congress on the amendment to %he cOnfis
cation bill, avowed the true abolition doc-
trine, wluCh' P,resident Lincoln, however
he may for a time beet about the bush,
and the whole party must ultimately
adopt and act upon. iHQ has in effect de
clared the right of State .seceision under
the Conititution. Of course the right
must be exercised at the risk of war with
the other States; if they choose to coerce
the recalcitrant State into submission. In
other words, he makes secession and rev
olution synonymous, and in this view of
the pestion• takes the following grounds :
"If a State, as a State,.makes war and
becomes a belligerent power, we can,
when we conquer it, treat it is we would
any other foreign nation. And this is not a
question under but outside of, the Consti
tution. By the lewd of war ilte conquer
or may seize and convert to his own use
everything belonging to the enemy, and
sell it to pay the expenses of war and the
damages t occasioned by it. As the Con
federate . States have voluntarily thrown
themselves opt of the proviiions of the
Constitution, and placed themselves un
der the law of nations, it is our duty to
knock off every shackle from every limb.
The cry for the Union as it }vas, and the
Constitution as it is' is now but an at
tempt to perpetuate slavery. May the
God of justice paralyze all such efforts."
This is the hold doctrine of the compar
atively new
.political sect—founded by the
Englishman Thomson and, William Lloyd
Garrison, and composed of the fag ends of
211 parties and fikctions that have arisen,
disappeared or yet exist, since the adop
tion of the Federal Constitution—that
now under the Presidency- of Abraham
Lincoln, conduct the government and con
trol the destinies Of the .United States. •
The doctrine, held by the fathers, and
still maintained by all sound constitution
al statesmen and lawyers, is that the Un
ion cannot be broken except ,by the com
mon consent, of ..the parties to, the con
tract—that is the States thetuselvea. It
WWI wise ly . held keit. the.fraraamof- the
Uonstituon, and is so held by the Demo
cratic party, that, the people of a State
cannot, at will, revolutionize it' out of the
Union—that the ; Vnion was made to be
perpetual, and can in no wise be dissolved
unless by. , tbe general concurrence of all
ite constituent parts; andthis isthe only
doctrine by which it , can be I pieserifid.—
According to this theory the Union has
never been dissolved, and still exists, not
withstanding the belligerent attitude of
the people of home of the States; ,and, all
that is neeesshry to give it all the vitality
it ever possessed is to quell'the military
power now in 'arms for its destruction. It
requires no amendment of the Constitu
tion, no avoidance of its terms,. no power
but. what it plainly confers upon the con.
stituted authorities of. the Federal gov
ernment to accomplish this. The instru
ment itself is perfect, and the authority
conferred by it is ample. By the etercise
of that power alone, without °usurpation,
without the least infringement of the fun
damental law; without the suspension of
habeas corpus, the passage of confiscation
laws, or the issuing of emancipation proc
lamations, if the Lincoln administration 1
and party had simply desired to crush the
rebellion and re-establish the Constitution
and the Federal power in the, seceded
States, they could have done it long since.
But plainly that is not now, and never
was their intention. Mr.! Stevens is in
so than any leading man
of his party—and he tells us what the re
al design is.' It, is to treat the rebellions
States as foreign—to-subjugate, and held
and govern, them as provinces—to rob
them at will, and to treat them with a
cruelty trom which the most heartless
monarch in Christendom would turn with
horror, and none but an Asiatic despot
would approve or imitate. And this'll; to
be done for the avowed • purpose of de
stroying the Union. as the Constitution
made it; for, says Mr. Stevens "The eiy
for the Union as it was, and the Conititw.
tion as it is,' is but an attempt tel
The then, of the abolitionists; is•
no longer bidden—it is proclaimeditobe
the destruction of the Union-and this is
their prayer : , " May the ,God of justice
paralyze all efforts" - to restore the ..Union
as it was under the Conititutionas it is.
Thus abolitionism boldly avows -the
treason which: it Contemplates.—Patriot
