Wu Congress Proposed to reduce the
- public debt still further by its new-Funding
bill, the President, who is said to be a sup
porter of SEYMOUR and &ars, killed the
bill by his pocket veto. The new bill would
have largely reduced our annual payments
in the way of intercst, but our Democratic
President objected to it, and, perhaps, if the
real truth were known, for that very reason.
Otis CITIZENS are united in the desire to
honor Cans. SCHURZ, the German orator,
scholar and patriot, 'with such a welcome as
willlmake him feel tha't his noble efforts in
the cause of liberty are fully appreciated in
this section of country. Although the ar
-xangements for his reception next Monday
night are in the hands of our public spirited
German fellow citizens, still all classes of
our citizens will participate in the affair.
THERE is hardly a village from one end of
Pennsylvania to the other, but contains a
GRANT and COLFAX Club. Never before in
the Commonwealth were the people so
thoroughly aroused and organited to secure
the triumph of Republican principles. Our
State may be set down as certain to give at
-least twenty thousand majority for HART
RANFT, and CAMPBELL in October, and
nearly double that number for GnANT and
COLFAX in November.
- IF HAS been remarked as a fact worthy of
note that nearly all of the active, intelligent,
enterprising and public-spirited young men
of the city who will cast their yirgin vote
for President next fall, have enrolled their
names among the supporters of GILT and
COLFAX. They fully realize the importance
of the issue, and are not willing to be recog
nized in the ranks of the old worn out,
faded and corrupt Democratic party, which
calls progression a sin, repudiation a virtue,
and revolution a panacea for all national
'A MOVEMENT has been initiated at Cin
cinnati, which proposes to combine the Use:
ful with the agreeable, in the guise of a
Congressional steamboat excursion - from
Pittsburgh to New Orleans and back. A
suitable boat is to be engaged for the party,
at some date prior to the commencement of
the next session, when the rivers may be
in good navigable sisge, and the Congress
men are to be afforded, in a personal inspec
tion of these streams, the opportunity to
become entirely familiar with the practical
bearings of all the important questions
• concerning the improvement or navigation,
as well as its obstruction by railway bridges
and otherwise. A preliminary meeting of
- the projectors has been already held at Cin
cinnati, and it was made evident that the
idea was generally approved, and that the
excursion will be fairly inaugurated.
CANDIDATE FOR CONGRESS IN THE
After repeated meetings and .ballotings,
the Conferees of Armstrong and Butler
counties, together wjth that portion of Al=
legheny county lyiritwest and north or the
Allegheny and Ohio rivers, which, com
bined, make up the 23d district, have put
in nomination DARWIN PHELPS, Esq., of
Each county, by its primary action, made
choice of one of its own citizens, mid in
structed their Conferees accordingly. Alle
gheny presented the name of Hon. Tnomas
WILLIAMS, Butler that of EBENEZER MC
JHNIIIN, Esq., Of Butler, and Armstrong
that of DARWI PHELPS, Esq., of Kittan
ning—all good men. ; The district would
have been well Tepresented had the choice
fallen upon any/ of them. All are members
of the bar, and all men of talents, good
speakers, and genuine Republicans; and
tne tenacity with which the friends 'of each
adhered to him in &inference shows how he
is appreciated in his own county.
Mr. Pirr.i . Fs, the nominee, is now, we
think, between fifty and sixty years of, ate,
and has resided in Kittanning a little over,
thirty years, where he has long held a high
position at the bar. His moral character is
without a stain, and never is he more earn
est and eloquent than when pleading the
cause of benevolence, temperance, justice
and patriotism. To ripe scholarship he
adds natural gifts-of a high order, while his
personal presence and his manners as a gen
tleman-will command instant respect wher
ever he may go.
In early life Mr. PHELPS resided in one
of the northeastern col:Lakes of Ohio ; ,but ,
while yet a boy he removed to this city. He'
was educated in,' the Western University,
while that institution:•was presided over by
_After graduating he entered
the law office of the Hon. WALTER Fon-
WARD, who continued to be among his
warmest friends through, the remainder of
his life. It was soon after his admission to
the bar that he removed to Kittanning.
Some years ago Mr. Pmnixs represented
Armstrong county in the Legislature, elect
ed by the Whigs, and so popular did he be
come during his first and only session, that
he was nominated by the State Convention
of his party, in 1854, as candidate for An
ditor General almost by acclamation. Our
State ticket did not succeed that year, and
Mr. PHELPS has remained in private life
He will make an able, attentive, obliging
and perfectly reliable Representative, for of
course his district will elect him.
Hon. THOMAS WILLIAMS, who, as repre
sentative of that district, is now in his third
term, has made a reputation which will
give him a place among the historic men of
the nation. The change in representation
is not made because his constituents in any
portion of the district disapproved of the
leading part he took in the great questions
connected with reconstruction, and the im
peachment of the President; but on the con
trary this consideration gave him strength.
This fraction of Allegheny county has had
the member of Congress for ten consecusive
years; while Butler has not had one for the
same length of •time, and Armstrong has
had none for at least thirty. years. That
was the reason of the change. Whether it
is a good reason. is a point upon which men
may honestly differ. - •
MEXICO-A NEW POLICY.
• When the President nominated General
ROSECRANS for the - Madrid mission, and
McCLEnwilni for Mexico, it was patent :to
every one that neither he nor any one else
regarded the confirmation of either as
within•the range of any possibility. The
nominees were men so entirely dissimilar in
all their personal and political antecedents,
so entirely the antipodes of each other, in
the way of personal merit and qualifica
tions for the important duty of representing
the Republic with foreign nations, so un
equally possessing the confidence of our
own people, and, moreover, the position of
affairs as to the two missions presented
such a radical difference, that the Presi
dent's action excited universal surprise and
curiosity. While ROSECHANS was altogether
unexceptionable, Personally and politically,
to the country and to the Senate, the other
.nominee was one of the last men whose
selection could .be approved.of by either.
The Madrid mission was already acceptably
filled by Hon. Join: P. HALE, against
whom not a whisper of public, official or
international complaint had been heard,
while the Mexican embassy had been prac
tically vacant for years, although the inter
nal condition of that country, and the very
precarious state of its relations with our
own, its close and powerful neighbor, and
the intricate and embarrassing complications
growing.out of the very free commercial
and personal intercourse of the two popula
tions, presented the - most urgent rea-
SonS for supplying the vacancy withinit
farther delay, and in the person of sonic
wise and capable diplomatist. Why, then,
should Mr: JouNsoN needlessly seek' to dis
turb the settled and , agreeable relations at
Madrid, knoWing that the concurrence of
the Senate would be refused ? Why should
he, also, delay the adjustment of the pres
sing questions with Mexico, by trifling away
the closing hours of his Senatorial Council
in the bootless nomination of a politician so
disreputable, of a citizen enjoying popular
confidence so little, as does JOHN A. Mc-
The proper answers to these queries are
afforded by subsequent events. The Senate
refused to recall Mr. ]Toni, and it declined
to send out the Illinois adventurer to
Mexico. This was as the public expected.
Immediately, then, the lantern was tur. ed,
and General RosEcnAws was nominated
again, but, this time for Mexico, and the
Senate hastened to mark its appreciation of
valuable services rendered in the past, and
its regrets for the necessity of the previous
rejection, by an unanimous confirmation: ,
Remembe ring that General RosEcnAxs
had, since leaving the army, become a resi
dent, on the Pacific Coast, and recalling to
mind the frequent public statements, made
within the past twelve months, of his con-
PITTSBURGH GAZETTE.. : : Tai
nection with certain schemes for coloniza
tron and territorial acquisition in the north
western Mexican States bordering on the
Coast and the Californian Gulf—schemes
vaguely hinted at, but evidently vast in their
comprehension—we were inclined, in an
nouncing his appointment to his mission, to
advert to these rumors, and to suggest that
some connection would yet show their real
relation to his new diplomatic trust. But the
suggestion was forborne, because it. wl,ould
have seemed to imply some sort of reflec
tion upon the private and, therefore, sinis
ter relations of the President, his Cabinet or
General RosEcitAiis, to that combina
tion of capitalists—which, according to
rumor, had long since arranged a. plan
for the absorption of those provinces.
It cannot be forgotten that this plan was
publicly announced and attracted much at
tention last year, and that even' the details
of the arrangement which had been con
summated with President Ju4nEz, were
made known to the public, and that the
names of our own public men, in and out
of office, wbo were parties to it, were freely
Another chapter in the programme has
opened upon us. Late dispatches from
Washington state that the instructions
for the new Minister have been pre
pared and that they embrace the con
tingency of what styled a "protect O
rate" over four or five of the Mexican
provinces i. e. it is intended to absorb those
provinces; absolutely and forever, under the
cover of a nominal concession by Mexico of
the American right to protect the interests of
our citizens colonizing the same. This re:.
veals the entire shape and aim of - this new
scheme, for the more effectual accomplish
ment of which GEN. ROSECRANS, himself
no doubt, probably sporty in interest, has
been expressly entrusted with the Mexican
mission. His previous nomination to
Madrid was merely foie blind, and it ac
complished its objeet
There are good reasons for believing that
the influence and power, attaching to this
mission as to any other which personally
embodies the dignity and influence of the
Republic in its official representative at any
foreign bapitaL are to be used to promote
a gigantic land specUlation, in the interests
4certainof our capitalists and men ;
that individuals very high in office at Wash
ington, and even in Mr. JouNsoN's Cabi
net are privately interested in the scheme ;
that, in order to accomplish the acquisition
by this clique, of those territories,—rich as
they are, almost beyond. conception, in min
eral and agricultural resourceA, and present
ing such conspicuous advantages for the
extension of our domain southward along
that coast. The traditional and well-known
prejudices of the Mexican people are to be
disregarded, and the "protectorate" is to be
put through, at the expense of that war
which must inevitably follow. For noth
ing is more safely to be predicted than that
the disclosure of this scheme, to strip from
Mexico these or any other of her States,
would be followed by another of her fre
quent revolutions, JUAREZ would be driven
from power, and that people, wretchedly
factious as they are when left to themselves,
would, as in all times past, be united instant
ly to a man in their jealous resistance to the
hated Yankee encroachments. a
The new "poiicy" which Minister ROSE
CRA_NS is to carry out, means therefore the
prostitution of the honor, influence and
power of this Republic in the service of a
corrupt combination of a few of our own
citizens, in and out of Federal office; it
means the completion of a private bargain
which an .equally corrupt Mexican official
has sold himself and his country for ; it
means either a war with the neighboring
nation within the next twelve month, or
that we are about'• to rob, with the strong
hand, a, neighboring and helpless people.
We sincerely hope that all the American
press will unite with us in denouncing this
infamous intrigue, and in invoking for it an
early and searching examination by Con

we fear that it may never be satisfied within

cause is about to be regained in the election
of Smaroun and BLAIR. Nor are the'ai_

have heard enough from the incendiary

excited is shared by thousands of the De

The new Democratic raid against the
farmers, which, under the pretense of equal
taxation, advocates the assessment of lands
at their full value, and their liability to
an equal share of the public burthens,
is very clearly declared in the New York
Platform. VALLANDIGIIAM of Ohio, who
was a leading spirit in that National
vention, is w a candidate for Cobgress in
his own dist 'et. To make this idea still
more clear, Ipossible, he submitted some
resolutions o a Democratic Convention at
Dayton, a ew days since, and the same were
adopted, one of them reading as follows:

The Republicans of Lancaster county,

of respect. Mr. 0. J. DICKEY, who will

The Democrats of Adams county have
nominated WILLIAM McLzen for Congress,
JOSEPH P. MCDAVITT for the State Senate,
and A. B. Dili. for Assembly. Whether
the other counties of the Senatorial district
will ratify the nomination of McDAyrrr is
yet to be seen. DuscAß, whom McCox-
AUGURY ejected from the seat, proposes to
try his luck again.
The Republicans of the same county have
nominated JOHN CESSNA for Congress;
Vfmaem DixoN, of Franklin county, for
State Senate, and CHARLES MILLER for

proposed, by one of the number, that they

rejoined General Hancock, "I don't know

The ielre Alarm Telegraph Bell.
MESSRS. EDITORS GAZETTE :—Through
the medium of your valuable journal I
wish to call attention to the present abuse
of the Fire Alarm Telegraph, in regard to
sounding the- alarm of lire on the "big
bell." Under a new system the use of the
bell has almost been discarded, only being
sounded for alarms coming front localities
in the heart of the city. We wish to tell'
.those gentlemen whose duty it is to make
rules for the Piro Alarm Telegraph that a
large number of tax payers own and aro
otherwise interested in property in the
upper wards of the city, and believe they
have the right to demand that the alarm of
fire from those lOcalities be sounded on the
"big bell." The explanation already given
for not using the bell in every ease, is weak
and, for the credit of the fire department,
should not he repeated. Now, in conclu
sion, I wish the hrnper authorities would
see what a valuable institution the "big
bell" is to the , residents here who own
manufactories and other valuable property
in the upper wards, and abolish the present
system. Let the "big bell" be used for the
sole purpose for which it was put up, name
ly, to notify the public of fires in any local
ity of the city. Sunsuit' linn.

Talking of the public debt and taxation,
"It is a mistake to suppose that the bonds
are mostly held by capitalists. Large sums
belonging to children and widows under
the order of the courts, or the aetion of trus
tees, have been invested in Government
bonds. The vast amounts held by Life and
Fire insiaranceCompanies and savings banks,
are, in fact, held in trust for, and are the
reliance of the great body of active business
and laboring men or women, or of widows
and orphans. The savings banks of this
State, are the depositaries of the poor, or of
persons of limited means, hold about $60,-
000,000 of Government bonds. The whole
amount held in the State of New York, in
the various forms of trust, will not fall be
low $200,000,000. If we look into other
States we shall see that only a small share
of these bonds . are held by men known as
capitalists. But they . belong in fact, if not
in form, to the business, the active and
laboring members of society. The destruc
tion of these securities would make a wide
spread ruin and distress which would reach
into every workshop and every home how
evcr humble. * * * Whatever our
views may be, the payment of this debt will
fall upon the future. Do what we may, a
generation that will come after us, will de
cide its mode of payment and without re
Bard to anything that we may say.
The depressed industry of oar land, its suf
fering labor, demand that the load of taxa
tion be lightened. There is a perfect accord
in the Democratic ranks as to the policy;
and need of- honesty, and economy; but
there is some difference of opinion as to the
construction of the contract with the public
creditor. Some hold that it is right, and
that it is due to the tax payers, that we
should save what we can by paying the
principal of the debt in currency; but they
underrate the force of their own arguments.
It is a mistake to suppose that the interests
of the bondholder and tax payers are antag
onistic. The fact -is overlooked that in or
der to make any saving by giving the bond
holder a debased and worthless paper we
would bring upon ourselves disaster and
dishonor which will cost a hundred fold
what we can save. It means that we are to
give to the laborer for his toil abase curren
cy; it means that the honor of our country
shall be stained; it means that our business
shall be kept in uncertainty and confusion;
it means that the laboring man shall suffer
by the increased cost of the comforts of life;
it means that the tax payers shall be burden
ed by a Government proved to be corrupt
and imbecile by this very depreciation of its
money. We can't afford to speculate upon
the Nation's honor at so fearful a cost.

THE BODY' RENEWED.
According to Physiologists, the human body is
renewed once in seven years. Every day, every
hour, every moment, the flesh. the cartilage, bone
and muscle of the frame are wasting away, and be
. imperceptibly replaced by new material.
Health depends upon the nature of that material,
and whether it shall be pure or diseased, full of
vitality and elasticity, or feeble and flaccid, depends
mainly unon the action of the stomach.. In warm
weather the waste of the system is very rapid, and
if It is not as rapidly repaired by the great .sus' ain-
Inc organ, the eon,equence is debility, emaciation
and decay. It Is. therefore, of paramount import
