:Mendacity and Itypbcrisp. 1
It is most , marvelous' to note the :coolness and
nelf-posseession with which persons remarkable for
the qualities above written, undertake works that
betterixien would loathe and shrink from, and even
some kinds of knaves would shudder at. Recur,
for instance, to a paragraph in the Gazette of Wed
nesday concerning the Democrats and the Tariff
Is it not monstrous to hear this superlative jacken
ape talk of the "ignorance of any Class" of the
pemocrats? Is it not astounding to hear him
gravely put forth the asssertion thnt the Dem
.of Pennsylvania have "turned a sontersee
(mark the spelling) and "ranged themselves under
the "banner of free trade." " We know that we
are wasting time in alluding to such an attack
from such a quarter. We know that even the Whig,
party care little for the hard bargain, they have in
"those moveables,' ! the Gazette and its editor, and
that the Journal is justly consideredthe organ of
the rbspectable mass of the federalists, while the
Gazette can but speak for the more reckless and
unscrupulous portion of the party. But still we
must be permitted to waste a few •words in noti
cing soma-of' hiscanaeless faliehnods.
The assertion that the democrats of Pennsylva
nia are "ranged under the banner of Free Trade, -
is just as groundless and as false as the brazen lie
that the Democrats were the "vociferous friends of
the Tariff of 18422 But the Democrats may con
sole themselves, that if the Gazette has made "Free
Trade men" of them all at one daring dash, it has
pat Czar in the same category, and declared that
he was the "SECOND BEST - FREE TRADE
MAN" in the country."
On Monday last, in an article - on the Tariffques
tion, we alleged it was from the Democrats alone
that "the friends of the Tariff had any thing to
hope." We repeat the opinion, and do reiterate
the assertion that in sustaining the Tariff policy,
they have had to, struggle against "Henry Clay and
the time-serving, treacherous i-hig faction.' We
say that the Democrats of Pennsylvania assisted
by the Hero of the Hermitage did do noble service
against the Compromise of 1832, but were over
borne by CLAY, CALHOUN and the Whigs. We
dare the Gazette now to deny this_ We dare him
to disprove his own assertion, madein 1842, that
Czar "ranorrisn THE Taarrr,"—that he "put
the knife to the throat •of Protection and asked for
help to drive it &me."
It will not do for the ,mendacious Gazette to en
deavor, by a poor attempt at sarcasm or sneering,
to ke"p out of view the historical fact that the
Democratic. Senators, Waroar and , BCCUANAN
saved the Tariff of 1842, when Czar's closest
friends, BEI:LATEX, CLATTOX, Masan,: and SIX
OTHER WHIG SENATORS, voted against that
Tariff. The'real or affected wonder of the over-pi
ous, or over-stupid editor will not alter nor conceal
the fact that JOHN" Q. ADANS and JOHN M BOTT}L
and JOHN WHITE (of Ky.) and TRUITT BIT OTLI•
La- warp azanzszsr.arivas in Congress voted
against the Tariff of IB42—and that it was squeez
ed through Congress by 1 or 2 majority, mainly
through the labors of the Democratic delegation
Instead of affecting wonder at the rehearsal of
these pregnant facts, the editor might employ him
self in reconciling his late support of Clay with
the unretracted charges made by 'himself against
Czar, that, he is a " free trade man," a "slave
holder," an "adhering mason," a "duellist," and
"immoral and profane." The facts in our article
of Monday cannot be disputed nor gainsayed.
The Democrats of Pennsylvania, in and out of
Congress, did stick to the Tariff in 1842 when
Czar attacked it—they did stick to it in 1842
when Czar abandoned his post, and whem Anaxs,
Czarrox & Co., strove to "throttle" this now
thrice-precious tariff of 1842, as the Whigs would
have.us believe it ii; and they did stick to the tariff
of 1842, in the last contest aboutthe tariff in Con
gress, and they will stand to the tariff policy till
they have it arranged on a just and sure footing.
These thiriga the people will understand, and have
abiding confidence in. But they do not know how
the Gazette editor has arranged it; to drop so sud
dent) , all his oft-repeated objections to Czar and
14a friends, L e., the Whig party, and become the
miserable tool of such a man and such a faction
as he has described them. If he could suffer him
self to speak of that "conduct as he feels," the
public might be glad to hear what he would say.

As the election >approaches the duty of every
democrat intreases. Our caos e'ts just and right

ted and firm, - - lithe Democracy carry Pennsylva..
tiltt Wt . fail, it Wffl be a victory' worthy of being
'tni;lasoned from one end of the union to the Other.
Evet since the passage of the new Tanff law, our
opponents have been .busy ., at trait, endeavoring.
to create the impression that that law would pro
duce misery and distress throughout this happy and
prosperous union. Every argument they could ad
dress to 'the passions and prejudices of the people
pits been freely used. A powerful attempt has
been made to get up a panic, in order that them ,
selves thereby made succeed to power. But, thank
heaven, there is too much good sense found arndng
the great mass of the American people, to de
luded and deceived by such miserably wicked strat.
agems as these .The country must tclotinue to
prosper, so long as men practice indu‘try, frtigali
ty and honesty. Seed time and harvest Will still
return, bringing to our doors a plentiful sepply of
the good things of this world! Trade and com
merce, in all their various departments, will ton
tine to flourish as heretofore. Indeed, the condi
tion of the country • opinion, never appeared
more flattering that m at present.
Croakirg federal :lens, who are ever ready
to turn every little cirturristanT to their own ad
vantage, will / try to create political capital in
pennsylvaniXout of the paSsage of the new Tariff.
But ;- his we feel certain they will be wofully
•d. Whether fur weal or woe that act
law of the land; but it is not like the
itledes and Persians, irrevokable
If it should appear that the law re
quires amendment or modification, it can easily be
effected, and the main features of the act remain
undisturbed.. But to whom will the country look
for such modification as will make that law more
acceytable to Pennsylvania. Not to our opponents ,
certainly,-for they are in a hopeless and powerless
minority. The Pemocratic.party, and they alone,
must be looked to as the only party that can modi
fy the - tariff, if any modification is deemed neces
saly. This fact cannot be impressed too often on
the public mind.
The prospect before us is truly encouraging.
Notwithstanding the assertions of our opponents
to the contrary, the democracy are indissolubly
united. We have not heard of a single Democrat
who will remain from the polls, much less vote
for the federal ticket. Our ranks are as s•rong
and as firm as they ever were—.:our friends are as
zealously attached to their principles as they have
been on former occasions, when their country de
manded their services. Democrats! do your duty

that ' , discretion is the better part of valor."
Me. .turroit.;—The published speech in the
.Tournal of Yes•eiday, purporting to be made by
Mr, Bighorn, I consider a wilful misrepresentation
of me. I now say to him or any of his colleagues
that I am ready to meet him or them in any part
of the county they may designate. Mr. B. thinks
that playing on the Tariff he can cover his dupli
city, he will find that others are as oriliodar on the
Tariff question as be or any of his party are.—
And the "two edged sword' of the g entleman has
no terrors for ine: Let the people bear both sides
and then judge Who will best represent them in
the Legislature. ! With true respect.
FACTS rots FAiimEns.—lf we should wound the
feelings of our Whig cotemporaries a little by the
following comparison in the prices of bread-stuffs,
since the arrival of the Cambris, and before the
arrival of the Britannia, (says the Pennsylvanian.)
we shall be consoled, perhaps, by the reflection that
it will be gratifying to that great agricultural in.

the Pennsylvanian that intense excitement prevails
at Manayunk, among the male and female opera
tives, owing to the attempt of one of the manufac
turers to reduce their wages. Several meetings
have already been held, at which strong resolutions
have been passed, against the person alluded to,
and against the pretext he makes for his conduct,
The meeting on Saturday last was composed of
many hundreds. Tt appears that none of the other
manufacturers have as yet entertained the idea of
reducing the wages of their hands.
FATAL ACCIDE;YT.-A fine little girl between
two and three years of age, the daughter of Mr
J:co. GILDI7, on Wylie street, was instantly killed
on Wednesday afternon, by being run over by a
cart. Parents cannot guard their children too
closely, from the Inumber of children let leave to
play on the streets, where there are so rnany,ve
hides passing, it is a wonder that accidents of this
nature do not more frequently occur.
J. M. Warre.--=Those of our friends wishing to
procure a handsonte and fashionable suit of clothes,
we would refer to the establishment of J. M.
WUITE, corner of Liberty and Sixth street. His
stank of goods comprises the- largest and most
fashionable assortment in the city; and clothes
turned out from his establishment, under the en
perintendance of his skilful cutter, Mr. Miles, are
warranted to fit. Give him a call.
MA3rxorit Arer.cs.—Our good old friend Ron.
ERT HARE, Esq , of Ross township, in this county,

weighs 1 pound and 4 ounces, and measures 14i
inches in circumference. Who can beat this?
GALE ON LAKE Earr..—The Cleveland Plain
Dealer, of Monday, says: "The. late gale has made
havoc with our lake shipping. Some twenty
vessels, including several steamboats, had to refuge
among the islands. Some lost their masts, others
their sails, and the Henry Clay lost two of her
hands, by being washed overboard.
The propeller Goliah, which was run aground
near Black River, was towed into port yesterday.
She is now being emptied of her wheat, which, of
course, is very much damaged.
The gale must still continue :at the lower end
of the Lake, as the boat due this morning, and on
which the. mail is to cone, has not yet arrived.

A DEMOCIIITIC 1110 v MASTEII.—Gen. Hous
ton, who is extensively engaged in iron works in
Centre county Pa., has authorized the contradic
tion of a statement put afloat by the "panic makers,''
that he hail reduced, or was about to reduce the
wages of his hands. The Centre Democrat says:
"We are authorized to contradict the statement
point blank. Gen. 11. will not reduce the wages of
the laborers in his employ. Should any reduction
be necessary, it will be taken from his own profits,
not from the hard earnings of th`e laborer, and we
may add, that were manufacturers gtnerally to pur-
sue a similar course, it might, in the end, not only
benefit the country, but themselves."
How. JANES BtrellANAN —.Mr. Buchanan arrived
in Philadelphia on Saturday eveninti last, and re

Tae PROSPECT BRIORTERS.—The following ex.
tract from a letter written in New York, and pub
lished in a Philadelphia paper, gives promise of a
good business, the incessant labors of the panic ma
kers to the contrary notwithstanding:—
Whatever injury may be inflicted on some branch
es of industry by the prospective change of duties,
it is a matter of rejoicing to all but morbid politi
cians, that the manufacturers of woolen goods have
entirely recovered from their late panic. Within
a week every geese has been bought up in this
market for actual use, and the liner sorts of wool
are advancing in value.
Samuel Lawrence, the celebrated manufacturer.
of Lowell, informs us that he has used one million
of pounds of wool this year, that he is just starting
another mill, that will consume 700,0U0 lbs. more;
and since the pasage of the new tariff, he is laying
the foundation of a new mill, on an enlarged scale.
which will use up two millions of pounds more
Here we have the evidence of a person of ack
nowledged judgment, which must set at rest all
fears for the safety and the rapid increase of at
least one important branch of industry, that was
given up to ruin by the panic makers. The cotton
factories are confessed by all to be out of danger
The iron men of this State are not at all alarmed,
while any thing like present prices rule in Eng
land. Every da;y is adding to the list of manufac
turers, who on calm reflection, proclaim their late
fears entirely groundless.
The coal panic, too, is' blowing
over. "Stop my
coal," has changed into "why don't you push for
ward my coal?" Meanwhile the agricultural in
terest is improving. Flour, grain, ashes, meats,
all are getting up. Money, too, under the new
prospects, has become plenty, and our banks find
themselves in a condition of perfect security.
On Tuesday afternoon the ship Atlas arrived at
this port, from Liverpool, having on board about
two hundred German passengers, whom the mate
compelled to go ashore without their having any
home to go to, or place to shelter them. Infor
mation was conveyed to the Fourth Ward Station
House, and Captain Smith went down to the dock,
where he found about one hundred men, women
and children, huddled together without bed or coy.
ering. Several of them were sick and unable to
endure such hardships without great injury to their
health, and the Captain forthwith sent about fifty
of them to the Station House. where they were
properly cared for. We believe there are laws to
protect the emigrant from such inhumanity, and in
the present case, the utmost penalty should be vis
ited on such conduct—N. Y. Cour. ¢ Eng.
CCI-The National Inlelligeneer is in an agony of
suspense to know where our bread-stuffs are sent.
We presume the farmers are not very: anxious
about it, so that they get purchasers. The Whigs
are as much terrified at the idea of the farmers
gdtting better prices since the new tariff has be
come a law, as it the export of our produce -was
to produce famine in the United States. We sus
pect about the only famine it will produce will be

Mal EDITOIV—it would appear that the editors of
the Gi4ette and Journal are anxious' who shall give
he grearestencod rn
iageent to thetrie'Extension
'and New York Canals—and thereby benefit their
candidate for canal Commissioner. :Mr. Power be
ing a large
.stoekholder antbdirectar in the Erie
Extension will - certainly be benefittecl by the noto
rious falsehoods set forth by these editors; ad if
elected Eommissioner of the Pennsylvania Canal,
would use all his exertions to injure the Main
Line and throw the trade unto his ; : own division,
and thereby 'increase his 'dividends. In the Ga
' zone of 'Tuesday morning, we find , the following:
"It is notorious that large quantities'of Flour from
Wellsville, &C. have taken the Northern route via
Beaver,lErie, &c. to N. 1. this season. With any
liberality or proper management onl the part of,the
Commissioners, this would not have occurred."—
Now let us look at this matter a little: Our Com
missioners haVe reduced the toll onylour so that
it is now 91e. sms. per barrel from Pittsburgh to
Philadelphia, including all state charges. Well
let us see how much the toll is on the Northern
route: It is 45c. 9ms. from Beaver to Albany; and
how much more for commissions; transhipments,
&c., I know not. Hence we see the liberality of
our Canal Commissioners in the article of Flour—
and if large quantities were shipped from Wells
ville, &c. by Erie, &c., it was not because the toll
was lower than on our Main Line. But lam
sainewl.a* credulous and scruple very much the
notoriety of the Wellsville transaction.
Again, near the close of Deacon White's North
ern article, he says: "Take Tobacco and Ilenip as
examples of the difference in management between
our Main Line and those of the Northern route.—
From Beaver to the city of New York the Tolls
are right cents, while by our Main Line they are
twenty-fire and one half tents to Philadelphia from
Pittsburgh!" Now from this statement it would
appear the Deacon is as ignorant of what is truth
in this matter, as Bob Riddle is of an atmospheric
rail road. Let me give you a comparative state
ment of the Tolls on a few of the leading articles,
Main Lint. Northern joutc

Cheese, " "
Hemp, 1.4 t: 24 0 21 0 '

But it is needless to go over the whole list; as 1
am convinced if we take into consideration the
transhipments and commissions at Beaver, Eric,
Buffalo, Albany, &c. and add these to the tolls on
the Northern route, there will be a Considerable
difference in favor of our Maine Line. And lam
bold to affirm, that if any considerable quantity. of
produce was carried by the Northern route, it
was not on account of the Tolls being lower than
ours. In conclusion, I would say, lam in favor of
low tolls, but I could not act the Tory so far as to
lend my influence to ,divert the business from our
own state works—even if I could 'support it by
truth instead of falsehood.
I would remark that the - above calculations are
predicated on freight carried in section boats and
amounts to $l7 per (3000 pounds—More than goods
carried in large boats and cars. And as it regards
Mr. Riddles story of the Steubenville freight, I
would just say, if the merchant got it for less by
the New York Canal than by the Main Line, it
was not because the Toll was lower, but because
the Transporters on that route are satisfied with
less profits. M.
*This the Deacon quotes.at S.cents, and says, it
fully illustrates the difference between the skilful
management of the Canal Commissioners of New
York and W. fi. Foster, Jr., and hi. aasociates. I
think it fully illustrates the Deaciati's lying propensi
ties, to benefit a favorite candidate and injure his
THE OFFER OF PEACE REJECTED
Mexico has turned another leaf in the record of
our disgraceful Ward She refuses to negotiate for
Peace until our forces are withdraWn from her ter

consent to treat for Peace with her troops invading
our territory, and her ships blockading our ports?
Should we not regard the very proposal to negoti

It may be madness for Mexico, in her weakness,
thus to stand upon her honor, when she has every
reason to believe that her refusal to negotiate will
subject her to a still further invasion of her terri
tory, and the loss of many more valuable lives, with
no prospect whatever of being able to expel us
ultimately from her soil; but ttlio Will say that in
this particular her conduct is not patriotic, high
minded and chivalrous?
So say. the New York Tribune. The unblushing
treason of such a man is only equalled by his bra,

denounced over the whole country by the Whig
press—the Tribune, as its vociferous and impas•
sioned leader, for carrying on the war, without, at
the same time, making an offer looking to peace?
And now that this is done, and when the offer is
said to be declined. the same press turns about and
applauds her for doing so, at the same time that
our government is calumniated for making the very
offer so earnestly recommended by! the Whigs?—
"How it Wanks.'"—The proprietors of the Cotton
Mill in this V . tlage, who reduced the; wages of their
hands, a week or two since, twenty-five per cent.
are now, and have been for several days, endeavor
ing to induce them to return to their work, at the old
wages; but they are too late, as most of them have
engaged to work in other mills, Thus have these
gentlemen in their . avarice, over-reached theni
selves. They will now

stands almost idle. So much for the panic.--

AN IMPORTANT FACT
We find the following in Saturday's Nete York
Herald, and refer to it as new proof of the absurdi
ty of some of the arguments against the Tariff of
The manufacturers labor under the impression
that their interests depend upon the rate of duty
upon foreign fabrics imported into the country,
whereas if they would look a little deeper into the
subject, they would find that the rate of duty had,
in fact, very little to do with the extent of our
foreign trade; and that our importations are regu
lated more by the value of our currency than by
the duty. If we could only impress the impor
tanee and force of this fact upon the minds of the
manufacturing classes, we should not hear so much
hereafter about the tariff. as we have during the
past few months. It cannot be denied but that
the enormous inflation iu the currency of the
country, from 1834 to 1837, had an immense in
fluence in producing the enormous importations
of those years. In 1834,'33 and '36 the tariff was
highly protective, much more so than the act of
1842 has been since the first year of its operation,
notwithstanding which the importations in 1835
and '36 were more than double what- they have
been any two years since,
From 1839 to •1892 the tariffranged below a rev.
enue point, averaging in 1891 and '92 only about
fifteen per cent on the aggregate importations, not
which the importations were only I
about one half the value of those when the duty
averaged above thirty per cent. What was the
cause of this change, this great falling off in the I
extent of our improvements? It Was nothing else
but the changes in the currency, which had been
as great as those in our foreign trade.
According to the theory of the protectionists
and free traders. the whole course of our foreign
trade from 1832 to 1641, stinuld'haVe been direct.
ly the reverse of what it was. fTheY find no place
in their theory for the.operation of those laws reg, -
ulating.the currency;Andnever dream
of the effect
of that influence, and their calculations, therefore
very frequently fail. It is Our 'Opinion. that the
Independent Treasury act sill have, amore im
portant hearing upon the gatiinft . -9f bur impor
tations, and:upon our foreign tiaae gedhrally, that
the new tariff, about which so -much-has been
said and written; and if those depending upon pro
tection Willturn round'and use their influenee, for
the purpose of bringing- into. existen'oe, and, , pre.
serving a sound currency, upon a pure specie basis,
they will do more towards shutting out of our mar
kets foreign fabrics, coming into competition with
similar articles of domestic manufacture, than they
could accomplish with all the tariffs in creation.

Headackes.—Headaches, no matter- from '_what
cause, have an unfailing remedy in ,-Cliekner's
Sugar Coated Vegetable. Purgative Pills. The
most obstinate nervous headache, or, headache a
rising from foulness of the stomach,-yield to their
operations in a few hours,.. and persons who use
them as a general opening medicine and purifier of
the blood will never be troubled with the headache
at all. The proprietor gives his warrant of this,
and will return the money paid for them if they
do not come up to his iecommendatiens. Nearly
every regular physician in New Yotk recommends
them for headaches to the exciusion of all other
remedies, and upwards- of thirty of them have
given the proprietor certificates to this effect.—
Clickner's Sugar Coated Vegetable Pills produce
neither gripe or nausea; and being coated with
sugar are us easily swollowed as bits of candy,
which gives them an obvious advantage over, all
other medicine. Persons subject to headaches
should'never be without a box of them, for thus
armed they will have but little to fear from its at

lIOW TO GET RID OF A GOITRE.—Many
persons labor under the mistaken idea that
Goitre (an enlargement on the throat, producing
great deformity, and Often death from pressure on
the wind-pipe and large blood-vessels,) is incurable.
This is a very great mistake. This disease, as well
as Senorm, are eradicated from the system by that
pleasant, yet powerful medicine, JAyrir.s Aur.r.nn
*ewe. It is as certain to euro-when properly used,
as that the sun gives light and heat. All is wanted
is a fair trial of its virtues, and-the tumor will begin
to diminish in size, and gradually ' become smaller and
smaller until it entirely disappears. Prepared at No.
