heard at Washington it must be in the voice
of praise; and it seems to us that the adminis

crow over expressions of sentiment that come
from the lips only, and are perhaps forced from
them. The officers probably had each "an
axe to grind," which sufficiently explains their
.exuberance of patriotism.

The Capture of the Indianola.
The New York World, under date of Wash

to the tapture of the 11. S. iron-clad gunboat
Indianola by the rebels below Vicksburg:
"It is needless to add that the disaster has
created considerable alarm at the Capitol, oc
curing as it does so soon after the mere than
sufficient calamity embodied in the loss of the
Queen of the West. Speculation is rife as to
the dire consequences which may result to all
our undertakings with reference to the opening
of tht Mississippi. The project, which previ
ously looked ito feasible, of opening a passage
to the Red - river by way of the Tenses, is now
regarded quashed, for the reason that the
twd iron-dads be/ow - are transformed from
friends to eternise, against which the lighter
fleet of Monitors to be floated through the new
passage will find it impossible to compete.—
Thoughts of the river south of Port Hudson
are also full of anxiety. What havoc might
be tamed among our inefficient southern
luselesippi fleet by the onslaught from above
of the two splendid rams that • have just come
into rebel possession is a theme of serious
and popular discussion. Only one of our rams,
the Essen, ie known to be attached to Parra

caution has been taken to secure the accom

be strong, and there may be a power behind it
stronger, than the throne; but behind this
power there - is another stronger stall, bolero
which, when' exerted, the throne and the
power behind it will be swept away. Histery,
sacred and profane, is full of instances of hu

tions to those who suffer their ambition •to
steal away their reason,. Those who refuse to
profit by them are doomed men. However
deeply they may plot—however cunningly de
vise—there is a Providence " that shapes our

of those desperately bent on evil, are always
at work to circumvent them, sometimes at the
very moment when they deem themselves most
secure and look upon success as certain.
No doubt the ruling powers are resolved to
playa desperate game to change the character
of the Government from what the Fathers
made it to what their distempered reason indi
cates it should be; no doubt the whole ground
work of the new government has been pre

President with despotic power, placed the
purse and the sword in his hand, made him
mightier than the Constitution and the IWO,
and said to him, " Now thou art a Sing, exer
cise the powers wherewith we have clothed
thee "—no doubt they feel sanguine of their
ability to consummate their designs against
any resistance that can be made. In this
blind confidence let them rest. There is a

the fowler in his own snare.
It may be that our faith in the ultimate
triumph of - correct principles, in the' re
establishment of law, of order, the Constitu

our vision the magnitude of the dangers which
threaten our country, our liberties and our

him in whatsoever he determines. This is all
clear enough. We see' it as well as others, and
to say that we are entirely unapprehensive of
danger, would be to violate truth. But to our
vision through this thick darkness there comes
a ray of light, and in that ray we see delive
rance. We remember the red sea, how the
persecuted passed through on dry land and
the persecutors perished in the closing waters,
and a voice falls upon our ear, "thus perish all
tyrants." To that voice our heart responds,
in that destiny we believe.
As Aaron lifted up the brazen serpent in
the wilderness for the children of Israel, who
had been bitten by fiery serpents, to look
upon and be healed; so we raise up the Con-
atitution as it is, the emblem of Union and
peace and prosperity, for our people, who
have been.bitten and poisoned by the serpents
of Abolitionism, to look upon and be made.
whole. They will do it. Tyranny may domi
nate for a time—war may rage and blood may
flow—the prison may have.its occupants and
the gallows its victims ; but the people will
look upon the Constitution and be healed.
Then will come a healthy revulsion ; then the
day of redemption will have arrived ; then
Liberty and Law will triumph. That will be
our day of victory, when the red sea will close
upon Pharaoh and his host, and the Constitu
tion reign supreme over a restored Union and
a happy people. This is our faith. To those
who do not see as we do the bright IMUShine

Laird, at Birkenhead, in a covered shed or
"annexe" to the main yard, two powerful war
steamers are in course of construction "for
the Emperor of China." Their burden is
about 2,200 tens. They are of the ram class,
are partially iron-plated, and measure 200 feet
long by 36 feet beam, and 18 feet deep. Their
engines, now, nearly ready, are ranked nomi
nally at 300 horse power, but each will
work up to a thousand, which will give them
a very high rate of speed. In the dein yard
of the same premises another steam ram is
building, also "for the Emperor of China."—
Her length is about 150 feet by 28 feet beam,
and depth from 16 to 18 feet. She is to be
partially iron-plated, like the two others in the
annexe, and the three are expected to be ready
for sea in two months from the present time,
perhaps sooner. Capt. Bullock, who comman
ded the "290" is daily in attendance, superin
tending their progress. Does this gentleman
hold his commission from his Celestial Ma

In the yard of Messrs. W. C. Miller & Son,
Liverpool, there is nearly completed a wooden
screw propelled vessel, of about 460 to 600
tons.. She has been constructed upon the plan
of the American coasters, being nearly flat
bottomed. She is built for fast sailing under
canvas, and under steam is expected to run
fifteen knotsi:an hour. She is to be armed
with 9-pounder guns, and is expected to be
ready for sea in the course of four weeks.—
It is commonly reported that she belongs to
Items. Lawnence & Son's yard is the high

is building there "for the Emperor of Chins."
Messrs. Fraser, Trenholm & Co., of Liver

the Confederate Government, have contracted
for a large vessel of 8,000 tons ; which is to
be built at Stockton. Messrs. Thompson
Brothers are building, on the Clyde, a power
ful armor-clad steam ram "for the Emperor of
China," to be ready for sea on the 9th. of April
next. She is about 250 feet long, by 45 beam,
and 85 in depth. Her armor plates are from
4 to 5 inches thick. Her engines will be of
500 horse 'Air each.
Mr. Peter Denny, of Dumbarton, has con
sir-noted two fine screw . steamers. They are
lying in the Clyde. Report of a somewhat au
thentic kind says one of them is partly owned
by "the Chinese," and partly by individuals
at Nassau, New Providence. It is publicly
announced that she is soon to be employed
between Nassau and Charleston. The term
"Chinese" is in general use in the building
yards of the Clyde and the Mersey to designate
the Confederates, and the "Emperor of China"
has no other signification in this connection
than to personify Jefferson Davis.
The Meisrs. Scott, of Greenock, are comple
ting a very fine iron screw steamer, which is
alleged to be intended for the trade between
Charleston and Savannah. Two weeks ago a
fine vessel, of the same class as the Virg inia,
was launched from Messrs. Blackwood's yard
at Port Glasgow, and common report says she
is intended for "the Chinese."

The writer then proceeds to show that pow
erful combinations in aid of the rebellion now
exist in England ; that large "sums of money
have been subscribed by the monetary, ship
ping and mercantile interests in aid of these
associations ; that lists have been exhibited
by Confederate agents containing the names
of Manchester men of high standing who have
thus subscribed; that an accredited agent of

of light draught, are insured at , high risk pre

they run the blockade out and home, the enor

remuneration for the venture, and the bonds
are cancelled. If they are captured, the bonds
bearing a high rate of interest, are retained as

of selling their ships to the Confederate govern

TURKEY RAISING.—Here is a short chapter
on the rearing of turkeys, which commends it
self to the attention of our readers, for turkey
raising is one of the departments of a farm,
,with which most of our farmers and farmers'
wives seem least acquainted. A flock of good
sized, healthy, well-fattened turkeys, about
holiday times, is not only pleasant to look upon,
but to feed on, and, if you are economically dis
posed, to raise the wind on :
Why is it that at least - three out of four far
mers do not succeed in raising turkeys ? With
all other poultry they are successful, but tur
keys are abandoned by most farmers as too un
certain, and troublesome to bother with. Now
this is all wrong, for if a person gets the knack
of raising these fine fowls, they can raise as
many as they please. So far as lam concerned,
I generally raise more turkeys than I know
what to do with, and I have turkeys now, that
were left over last year, that will be eaten as
we want them. Last winter we fairly reveled
in roast turkey, gave suite a number away, sold
have some, besides the breeders, still
left. My plan of raising is simple, and I will
give it in as few words as possible.
First, I never allow a turkey •to set until
about the 'middle of May. They will commence
to lay early in April, but I take their eggs away
as fast as laid, and keep, them until they lay
their second batch, which will be finished about
the second or third week in May. I then give
her some eighteen or twenty of the eggs and
let her set. Along the middle of Jane she will
be off. I then put her and her young on an
old barn floor, or other outbuilding that is dry,
on curd and on cracked corn. Curti
is the best for a continual feed when the farmer
has plenty, but cracked corn or coarse mefil,
mixed with lobbered milk will answer just as
After they have been in-doors for two or three
days, or long enough to get fairly on their legs
—for the turkey is the weakest of all fowls
when yet young—l let them out, providing the
weather is fine and there is no dew on the grass.
The great reason why people cannot or do
not raise turkeys, is beeause they turn them
out as soon as hatohed, and about the first wet
ting they get they keel over and die. To sue
seed in raising turkeys, therefore, you must
keep them dry until at least ten weeks old,
When they will stand about as much water as
any fowls, geese and ducks excepted. Of course
they must be driven in every night, and on all
Occasions when a storm is threatening. The
reader will at once perceive there is care in
all this ; but when Christmas, Thanksgiving,
eta., some, to say nothing of the Sunday roasts
during winter, our care is lost in enjoyment, and
we come to the conclusion that turkeys are

pALMUM QUI MERUIT FERAT.
FRRRAT.ED OR IRON SYRUP.
This preparation of Iron Medicine is identical (by
careful analysis) with the far famed spring at Weisba
den, In Germany, and was selected by the proprietor
himself amongst the many celebrated European spas
and has been extensively used by him during a thirty
years' practice, with the greatest success, in the princi
pal cities of Europe and the United Iltates.
Its principal Composusd is Inn.
It is agreeable to the taste and taken by the most deli
elate palate with ease.
This medicine immediately enters into the general
system, imparts vigor to the vital force, repairs the tis
sues, improves the appetite, and through the general
circulation forms one of the most important components
of the Blood.
It it peculiarly adapted and invaluable, among other
of its virtues, to Delicate Children, Young Females, for
Females. of all ages, for all cases of General Debility
from Boyhood Puberty to Manhood and Age; and a
better argument cannot be offered than the simple fact
that the nobility, gentry and all classes of Europeans,
with the citizens of the United litatee, annually resort
.to this particular spa, in order to recruit their health
and restore their constitutions.
Prepared only by the proprietor himself, at
The Laboratory of J. M. BOMGARDNER,
Corner Fourth and Market Week/.
Price $1 per bottle, with directions.
Without signature of proprietor none is genuine.
