DEATH OF HON. JAMES IRF2N.
We learn, by private advicea from Centre
county, that Hon. James Irvin died at Beckley
Furnace on Wednesday, 26th instant, after an
illness of some duration and great severity.
James Irvin was born in the county where he
died, in the year 1800 In early life he entered
into the iron business, and in that pursuit was
perhaps more extensively engaged, in the mann
facture of charcoal iron, than any other man in
the interior of Pennsylvania. His habits of
business were those of the strictest integrity,
wi: h an enterprise and liberality which soon
rendered him prominent and influential in the
neighborhood where be was engaged. Outside
of his business, he devoted himself with great
:Pal to such public affairs as conduced to the
interest and prospeity of his fellow-citisens.
This is illustrated by the fact that he was unani
monely elected a Brigadier General and a Major
General of Millais, which at the time and among
the people with whom he moved were consid
ered high merits of distinction and honor.
In 1840 he was elected to Congress, in which
body he served for two years. During Gen.
Irvin's career in Congress, some of the most
Important measureeever broached in the coun
cils of the nation, were brought forward
and discussed. In the consideration of the
revenue liws be took a marked and active
part. His speech on the Tariff question was
quoted at the time among the ablest that were
delivered on that subject—and throughout both
the terms in which he represented the Centre
county district, Gen. Irvin was regarded as one
of the most practical and nieful members of
In 1847 Gen. Irvin was the Whig candidate
for Governor, in opposition to Francis R. Shenk.
That contest was waged with great bitterness by
the Democracy. It was the boast of the leaders
of that party at the time, that they never failed
of anccess when they were certain of the num
ber of votes necessary to carry a county or dis- •
trier, meaning thereby that they were thtet
prepared to concoct the fraud necessary to carry
the desired end. (len. Irvin was defeated by
Mr. Shook, and from that day he retired to hie
estates in Centre county, where he continued to
live up to within a few years, when he was ap
pointed Naval Storekeeper at the Philadelphia
navy yard. He held this import int position at
the time of his death, a peeition conferred on
him by President Lincoln as a mark of personal
esteem for an old political associate, the Presi
dent and Gen. Irvin having been members of
the House of Representatives at the same time.
Gen. Irvin was one of the principal if not the
most liberal in endowing the Agricultural Col
ledge of Pennsylvania, having contributed a
large tract of land to that enterprise, which is
now cultivated as the farm of the College.
There was no ostentation or display in this
donation. It wag the tree gift of a man who
had equalled the same munificence in other
directions that the community in which he
lived and his fellow men might be 'oenefited per
sonally and pecuniarily.
In his personal and private relations, few
men were more highly esteemed than Gen.
Irvin. From his bountiful wealth he dispensed
charity with, a munificent hand. He was the
friend of the poor and nr edy. He had a word
of cheer and an offering of assistance for all
who appealed fur hie influence and his aid. We
doubt, indeed, if any man has lately gone down I
into the grave in Pennsylvania, who wee more
regretted in the locality where he was best
known, than James Irvin. His memory will be
hallowed by th , se who sought to emulate or
who honored his character while living.
4 WORD FOR TBE SOLDIER, AND TWO
FOR THE SECRETARY OF WAR
Our sick and wounded soldiers are beginning
to attract the attention of their friends and the
public ; and OS this attention discovers the
true condition of the men wit 2 are in the army
hopsitals, we hear the mail - Mistakable expres
sions of discontent froMboth the hospitals, and
those who have returned from those hospitals,
where they had gone to succor and bear home
their friends Every local newspaper that we
open, contains some unvarnished story of the
influringe and the hardships- UP the men who
are confined to the ill provided army hospitals.
These stories are having their influence. They
have pierced the hearts and aroused the spa
pathiee of the people; and it is time that the War
Departmenteogins to understand that the order
by erbiOtt it forbids the removal of a sick man
to his:hew, prejudices brothers, fathers and
sone agalust the service to such an extent that,
we tear, enlistments and even drafting will not
become an easy task unless this over rigorous
policy is changed. If the Secretary of War
could read our rural exchanges for one week
he would discover that the patience of the
people is sorely tried on this subject, if he did
not discern an indignation brewing among the
masses which would lead Wan at once to adopt
a more humane policy on this subject. The
thousands of men who have been pining in the
hospitals for so many weary weeks, and are yet
uncured, would have been restored to the army,
had they been permitted to seek their homes
when fist taken sick. By this means we
would have the men who are now in the hos
pitals, restored to the ranks. The government
Would have saved immense expense and gained
111010011 e force by the policy. It would have
inspired confidence and won respect where now
there is daily breeding disrespect and disguat. :
By all that is sacred and humane, the. War
Department should be induced toaster itsnedei l
on this subject. Let the sick soldier who can
be removed return to his home, where he will
be speedily restored to the service. Not one
man out of live hundred would attempt to
shirk his duty by refusing to return ( under such
circumstances. They world return to the army
with enlarged ideas and knowledge of its hu
mane regulaticns, and become the bettersoldlers
because the better treated as men. A month's
delay of this permission for the wounded men
to return to their homes, may work us disaster
which all the sagacity, and wisdom and fore
thought we are willing to concede to the Secre
tary of War, could never repair.
Both Houses of Congress will meet on Mon
day next. The session will consist of just three
months, when, on the 4th of March next, the
Constitutional term of the present Congress will
expire. This time, so brief, we trust will be
devoted entirely to the consideration of public
business. Not a moment should be wasted in
discussion. "Words" are the worst offering
that any man can now tender to his country.
Too many of these have already been wasted,
and in no other locality or branch of the gov
ernment, have the hasty and ill.considered
wards of officials tended more to the injury of
the government, than on the floor of Congress
by the speeches of its members.
The Message will probably be delivered on
Monday. If so, we will issue it in an extra on
Monday evening, or if time is allowed us, In
our regular evening edition of the Tlai CIR&PH
It is believed that all the reports of the
Heads of Departments will be ready next Mon
day, but it is possible that Mr. Chase may be
behind, as he is entirely dependent on the
other departments for his estimates. Those es
timatee have not yet been furnished to him,
and, as a matter of course, the report cannot be
concluded till they are in.
Mr. Seward's report will be voluminous and
interesting. An abstract of every report will
be given to the agent of the Associated Press,
who will telegraph them to New York.—
The heavier reports cannot reach the public
immediately, as they will go at once to the
government punter after lying an hour or two
In Congress. The printing of the report of the
Secretary of State may occupy weeks, as the
accompanying documents are very numerous.
TEE TRUE DEMOCRATIC IDEA
The idea of that Democracy which has all
ways assumed to control the government and
guide the destinies of the American Union, has
always been claimed to be set forth with more
truthfulness by southern than by northern
Democratic statesmen. The northern wing of
the Democratic party has never produced a
statesman who has acted independent of the
dictation of the southern wing of the samtuo•
litical organisation. When a northern Demo
crat attempted to take a position regardless of
the wishes of the southern leaders, he was
either at once "crushed out," or he was pursued
with malignancy and fury, until he was in
duced to retract his utterance, renounce his
,convictions, or silenced in political strangula
tion. Hence, the southern leaders have be
come jealous of their power, and any attempt to
circumvent or abridge their influence, mouses
alike their fear and resentments. That the
southern Democracy are fearful of losing power,
has been more than once admitted by their most
prominent leaders, and hence the rebellion.
They rebel because they want the perpetuation
of power as it is vested in slavery; and now
they declare that that perpetuation can only be
had by extending slavery into every state—by
enslaving all labor—by making, all men who
toil for a living, subservient to the rule of a
George Fitzhugh, a prominent and popular
Virginia traitor, sets forth the idea of the con
trolling southern Democracy in a style more
lucid and with language more emphatic than
it has ever been proclaimed by any of his peers.
From what Fitzhugh recently declared, the
southern Democracy fear a government con
trolled by the masses of the northern people,
more than they do the loss of their slaves.
They fear ademonstration such as that by which
Abraham Lincoln was made President. The
safety of slavery is of no account in comparison
to the idea of being ruled by the "white trash"
of the north. The subject of negro slavery is
but the beginning of the principle of southern .
Democracy—to be made triumphant in the
enslavement, as we have before written, of the
entire mass of men who labor for a living.
This idea is set forth in the speech of the
traitor Democrat, Fitzhugh, to which we de
sire now to draw the attention of our readers.
We give a single paragraph. Let it be remem
bered that this speech was delivered in a state
which boasts of its devotion to patriotic's& and
the doctrines of the Declaration of Indepen
We shall not ofletd our friends in Idassachn
setts by legislation directed at the party now in
the ascendant. Never were a baser set of
wretches in possession of power than those who
have ruled and voted in that State ever since the
time of the Hies Legislature ; and yet no State
possesses so many men eminently fit to rule.
The creatures born with saddles on their backs
have thrown their riders. The dogs have es
caped from the kennel. But horses and dogs
need masters ; they cannot long live without
them. The present governing class in Mama
(Musette are naturally the lower layer of society.
They are incapable of fulfilling, for any length
of time, any other office than those belonging to
that lower layer. They will soon subside into
their former position, and be glad to get gentle
men, and conservatives, and scholars, and
Christiana to rule over them, while they " hew
the wood and draw the water." These out
breaks of society, in which " the meanest get
the uppermost," will occasionally occur, but in ,
the long run virtue governs vice, intelligence
governs ignorance, religion controls infidelity.
Let us of the South be patient, and wait for
that process of subsidence and stratification in
Northern society, which will be sure to put our
Mends uppermost ; for it is as natural for Men
to ride as it is for the mama to be ridden. He
who denies that God made the multitude to be
directed, governed and controlled by the few,
and that this common multitude is happier,
more virtuous and nrosperous, when governed,
than when governing, quarrels with the course
of nature, and disputes the wisdom and bene
ficence of Deity. Universal suffrage may put
society wrong side np,hat nature is all-powerful,
and soon brings down the lower layer or stratum
tufts true place.
—This is the Democracy which is now en
gaged in rebellion, and which their allies, the
Hughes, linchananans, Biglers and other of
their ilk in this State, are striving to uphold
and make triumphant. Let the people think
of these facts.

TO W HON DOES THE COUNTRY BELONG
From the leader in the Patriot and Union of
this morning, it would seem that neither law
yen, nor physicians, nor merchernia l , nor pre er achs,
nor soldiers have any right to participate in the
control of national affairs. Each must dis
charge the • 'separate ftindion" of his own ches—
t e., mind his own business and leave politics
alone. But why select these few classes out of
the community ? There are the mechanics, and
the farmers, and the miners, Ico., &n.—have these
no "separate function" to discharge ? Pray
Who are left, after' those are set aside whothave
some good honest calling to pursue ? The pro
fessional politicians l And these are the gentle
men who claim to have charge of the country?
Are they ?
The people are opening their eyes. The
country belongs to Tits PSOPIii, and the people
mean to take care of it. The physician has as
much at stake as the merchant, and though
the preacher may not have eo much that is
"earthy" to lose, if his country be destroyed,
yet it is to him his little all, and it bag come
to a pretty pass when the "five great intellectu
al professions" are sneered at and told to mind
their own business —when one of them is sin
gled out and told that when it touches the
great principles of government, end ventures
to form and express en opinion in regard to
the government it labors to sustain, and by
which it, in all its sacred rights, is so nobly
def. used, that it. "meddles with concerns on
which it is by nature and education incompe
tent to pronounce," and "and becomes an in
strument in the disintegration of society and
In the days of the first Revolution, patriotic
preachers were differently estimated, and we
thank God that the race of men who, for love
of country, are willing to speak forth their
Fiona, and intelligent convictions, when called upon
to do so, has not yet died out. The country
excuses them from serving in the army, but it
expecCi of them to do their whole duty at

politicians, they shrink from doing this, they
deserve to be branded as cowards, and hissed
from the prominent positions they so traitor

also much exercised as to the poor 'ogre—who
is to provide fur him p Alas ! Hitherto he has
provided both for himself and his master, and
now that his master has run oil, he is taking
care of his master's family and supplying his trai
torous master with bog and hominy. Never
mind for the negro ; he will take care not only
of himself, but of all his former masters who
escape unbung. Rather say, what shall we do

FOR THE HAIR.
AHANDSOME HEAD OF HAIR is a crown
of glory. With proper care and culture
it will last as a protection to the head as long
as the nails do to the fingers, or the eyelashes
to the eyes. STIRLING'S AMBROSIA is the only
article yet discovered that will bring about the
desired results. It is a preparation the result
of science and experiment ; the science point
ing out what was needed, and experiment find
ing the requited properties in certain roots, bar ks,
and herbs. It has consumed a long time in its
preparation, has been tested by persons of most
undoubted reliability in this city, and is by them
pronounced perfect, and the only satisfactory
article, and is now offered to the public. The
proprietors, determined to give it the meet
thorough tests, practical and chemical, and now
certain that it will make the hair grow luxuri
antly on Bald Heads, Preventing Grayness and
Baldness, Reinvigorating and Beautifying the
Hair, rendering it soft and glossy.
Da. STERLING'S AMBROSIA is a stimulating,
oily extract of roots, barks, and herbs, and,
aside from its neatness, permanency, and gloss,
it is medically adapted to preserve and add to
the beauty of the hair. The only article yet dis
covered that will Cure the Disease of the Scalp, and
cause the flair to Grow.
This is to certify that about. eighteen months
ago, 1 commenced using Susumu's Airtutosik.
My hair was short, thin and rapidly falling out.
I had tried many Hair Tonics, Invigorators, &c.,
without receiving any benefit. Soon after using
the Ambrosia, my hair ceased falling out, and
commenced growing so rapidly as to astonish
me. Now my hair is thick, soft, and glossy,
and is five feet four inches in length—when let
down, reaching to the floor. This wonderful
result I attribute solely to the use of Sri saw's
AMBROSIA., as since I commenced using it I have
applied nothing else to my hair.
