We have been compelled to raise the club subscription
price to one dollar and fifty cents in order to save our

taies, about twenty-five per cent., and is still rising ;
and when we tell our Democratic friends, candidly, that
we can no longer afford to sell the Weekly PATRIOT AND

COT the publicetion, we trust they will appreciate our
position, and, instead of withdrawing their eubecrip

degree of ability, can be made serviceable hereafter, the
Weekly PATRIOT awn Ustioi will not be less useful to

for increased encouragement in this great enterprise,
and appeal to every influential Democrat in the State to

vidual is trifling, the benefit to the party may be great.
Believing that the Democracy of the State feel the ne
cessity of sustaining a fearless control .organ, we melte
this appeal' to them for assistance with the fullest confi
dence of success.
The same reasons which induce us to raise the price
of the Weekly, operate in regard to the Dailfpaper, the
price of which is also inert/med. The additional cost to

ROOS THE TYPE OF HEN.
"The 'awe of Nature male the whole world kin."
Analogy is one of the most prominent prin
ciples in creation. Everything is a type of
something else ; everything represents and
foreshadows its next highest link.
Man is the great obvious prototype of all the
animals. The character of every animal rep
resents one particular passion ; the character
of every man gathers up and compounds in
itself all the passions. And whatever animals
approach nearest to this faculty of compre
hension—this power of variety—are, of course,
the nearest type of men ; the farther off, the
more remarked their individuality.
All tigers are fierce, all lions are brave, all
foxes are cunning, and "the rage of the vul
ture, the love of the turtle," are proverbial.—
Each possesses his individual quality; the only
difference is in quantity—more or less.
Now what is the distinguishing trait of dogs?
"Why," you say, "according to the species."
Exactly so, and there are varieties enough of
the species to express all the qualities of a
Within the range of this one class of ani
male are eomprohanded the elements of all the
good and all the evil, all the love and all the
hatred, that ever soothed the sorrows or shook
the soul of humanity.
.There are plenty of reasons why this type
should be considered the proximate link of
man—the variety of his species, the sagacity
of his instincts, his capacity and education,
his exemption, as a rule, from servile labor.
He is to be the friend, the companion, the as
sistant, the confidential servant of his master.
Directly you degrade him to the rank of a
slave, you blunt his energies and coarsen his
nature. Dogs reason considerably; their in
stinct amounts to a low degree of intellect.—
The different sorts of dogs represent the dif
ferent sorts of men; 'and the physique corres
ponds as well as the character.
Look at the bull-dog. Hie strong shoulders,
his great head, his enormous jaws match well
with his dogged resolution, his stern, cold,
intrepid bravery. There is no dash or gal
lantry about him; he simply goes at hie work
the shorteet way, and does it. Amongst men, you
can find this sort in Yorkshire, in Lancashire,
in Cornwall, and there are plenty of them among
the "bonnie Soots." Whenever you see a man
of hard features, prominently developed, and
powerful lower jaw, you may know for certain
that he is a man, not of high resolve, but of
stern resolution. He will calculate chances
coolly and fearlessly, he will spring to the fray
with all the pluck possible to humanity ; in
fine, he is akin to the bull- dog.
Then comes the greyhound, a thin elegant
creature, but he dashes swiftly on his prey,
and bites hard; very like those light cavalry
fellows; who rode down upon the Russian guns
at Balaklava ; very like the gallant line who
scaled the highest of the Alma.
The great, large, lumbering Newfoundlander
finds his human development in a class of
negative men, whose pursuits are active, but
physical. Not sensual men, by any means—
Men who all addicted to field sports and mus
cular exertion, though, perhaps, of indolent
minds—large, heavy, thick headed, good.na
tured, happy. go lucky beings. Well, these are

The terriers are a numerous class; so are the
commercial men. Both are restless, bustling

—oh, very !
The foxhound chases sly Reynard upon the
slightest scent, and finds a parallel in the Bow
street runner, or more modern detective.
The pointer and the setter represent men of
inventive faculty, who pioneer others, and find
ideas for others to work out.
The retriever comes behind, and, like the
careful student, or the patient machinist, gath
ers up the fragments, that nothing be lost. He
elucidates and elaborates though to its fullest
extent, and wherever a seed of greatness fruc
tifies, he rescues it with laborious care from
the oblivion of time in the lapse of ages. Of
this sort are the men who catty our mightiest
measures, and consolidate the elements of
The shepherds is universally considered to
be the primitive species, from which all other
varieties are derived. Pastoral pursuits were
the occupation of Adam, and no other sort of
dogs was required at first, until the phase was
thought of. This creature and the noble brutes
of Mount St. Bernard are the most conspicu
ous types in the world; they seem almost iden
tified with the men whose mission they so
greatly aid and share. Constant association
moulds them to great similarity—makes eac)L a
part of the other. Their hard lives of priva
tion and toil engender powers of endurance,
marvellous alike in the man are the dog. Here
the type is close.
It is rather a mortifying fact that the most,
useless of the canine tribes are equally faith
ful representations of our superior races. The
lady's petted poodle is signicant of the lady
herself—probably a spoilt child of fashion,
full of caprices, humors, whims and fancies,
having no object in life but to get rid of the
burdens of time—selfish, ungenerous, good for

nondescript little curs, who are not poodles—
mongrel• bred animals, who are neither useful
nor ornamental. Ons wonders what they were
created for, except that, like cyphers, they
count for quantity on the right side of signifi
cant figures; they do go to increase the popu
lation, either amongst dogs or men.
This species has many varieties; the most
prominent being swells' ' dandies and gents.
They swarm in servants ' halls, buzz about the

rooms. They flourish even oa carpets of three

DEC/IRAS& OF MARRIAGES IN New ENGLAND.

this anomaly is broader than our.own State is
apparent from the registration in other parts

for the laid six years have never been so'large
aa in 1855 and 1856. In the former year there
were 4,286 marriages. and in 1862 only
8,701—a very considerable diminution, if we
tate into consideration the increase of popes

to any portion of our State. The average num

THE CATHERWAL OF COLONGE ON
From the Albany Argue.
The following sketch of the Cathedral of
Cologne, and its approaching opening, may be
of interest to your readers. This world-re
nowned Cathedral, so justly celebrated for its
age, beauty, and magnificent music on Sundays
and Holy days, is now finished, and it is hoped
that the old prophecy may be fulfilled of the
re-union of all Germany after the completion
of the Cologne Cathedral.
Who has not seen the Cathedral of Cologne
on the Rhine, or heard of it, or who has not
contributed something towards its completion ?
This monument of Christian architecture
will be opened on October 15th, 1863 ; the fes
tival will last two days. The following is an
extract from the history of this magnificent
4•Nothing is known of the first architect.—
Bishop Conrad of Hochstadten, laid the corner
stone in the year 1248, where the old Cathe
dral stood. In the year 1822, the choir was
used for divine service. 1437 the south tower
was finished so far that the bells could be hung.
In this state it remained 400 years. 1814 the
original plan of the Cathedral was found in the
garret of a Hotel in Darmstadt. King Wil
liam 111. of Prussia, allowed the necessary re
pairs to be made, and gave 10,000 thalers per
year towards it. King William IV. gave 50,000
thalers per year, and in 1840 laid the corner
stone for its final completion. In the same
year the Cologne , Central.Cathedralalnilding-
Association was established, spreading even
beyond the boundaries of Germany.
“The, whole length of the Cathedrals 466
feet ; its breadth 274 feet ; the height of the
Central Nave 100 feet; when finished, the tow
ers will be 476 feet high. Of the six bells, the
largest weighs 224, the second 125 tons. The
choir is surrounded by many chapels and tombs
of Archbishops. Among the tombs are those
of three Kings, or Magi."
The following is the order of arrangements
for the celebration of the great festival which
will take place on the 15th and 16th of October
Qa the evening of the 15th from 7 to 8 o'clock,
all the church bells of Cologne and Dentz (a
beautiful city opposite Cologne) will ring, and
cannons will be fired on both sides of the
On the 15th solemn ringing of the bells from
Bto 9 o'clock a. m. The procession will con
sist of two immense bands of music, the mem
bers of the Building-Association and lie °Mead,
the share-holders and invited guests. The civil
officers of Cologne and Dents, clergymen of all
denominations, schools, all religious, mechanic,
art and musical associations, are specially in
vited. Arrived in front of the Cathedral, the
procession divides, one part turning to the right,
the other to the left, in order to escort all per
sons of high rank to the Cathedral
After several addresses, songs and music, all
enter the Cathedral, where Pontificial High
Mass will commence at 10 o'clock, at the end
of which the grand "Te Deum" will be sung by
all present. The government officials are es
corted back to the government buildings by the
respective deputations. At 3 o'clock dinner,
and at 9 o'clock p. m., a grand ball.
The proceision on the second day moves in
the same manner to the Cathedral, where High
Mass. will be celebrated for all deceased friends
of the Building Association. In the afternoon
the session of the officers of the association,
the inspection of the Cathedral and its different
art-treasures. . The whole will end with a
splendid aoncert, given in the evening at the
Gurzenich (the concert hall in Cologne, which
can contain over 6,000 persons.) Who would
not like to be in Cologne on the 15th and 16th
of October ? It will be an epooh in a man's
life, to have been present at the opening of
one of the oldest Cathedrals of the world.
"Tan GOVEBAMENT " WANTS MORE WAGES.
The New York Independent, in a recent num
ber, starts the proposition for an increase of
salary for Mr. Lincoln. By all means. When
the financial department of the government can
print money by the oartload every day, why
should "Old Abe" be restricted to $25,000 a
year ? Why, that is a mere bagatelle—a beg
gar's pittance—a contractor could gain such a
sum in a day's operations. To be sure, men
who have filled the Presidential office hereto
fore have not sought it for its perquisites—bnt
when a great war is raging—when debt is piled
mountain high upon the nation, it is . a "mili
tary necessity" that "the government" should
have his share of the public plunder. Don't
be modest, gentlemen snoddyites. How will
$lOO,OOO do for his immediate and personal
wants ; then create a yearly stipend for "Mrs.
Government"—say of $20,000 a year to keep
her in scarlet cloaks, "loves of bonnets," Sze.,
that she may not, like Miss Flora MTlimsey,
have "nothing to wear." Then we must not
forget Bob and Thod ; let them not want for
spending money—wo cannot be too generous
to this inestimable family. Why not get up a
scale of salaries and incomes for them all, ta
king for a pattern the royal house of England?
Why should not our "shoddy" court Nis) with
that of St. James ? Our debt is almost as
large—we have a tax on everything—we are
better than the old dynasties of Europe, for
they are fettered with the habeas corpus and
such relics of old fogyism—they cannot con
script and drag from their homes, to fight for
an ides, their poor and laboring atums, as can
our "strong" government—men do not grow
rich in a day there, fattening and profiting by
a nation's ruin and the people's misery. Oh
yes ; by all means increase "the government's"
salary—it would be a. fitting and preliminary
step to declaring him dictator while the war
lasted, and then making the war perpetual.
Is there anything else "Honest Abe" would
like that Oriole Sam can procure for him ? To
be sure, the spare change of that benevolent
old uncle of ours could be profitatly laid out in
relieving the wants of soldier's families, and
mating the soldiers' themselves more epmforta
ble this coming winter, but then it would not
show near so well.—Bridgeton Former.
Com tc nto Sonitxxs.—The ['oldie's in the
army some time ago proposed to subsoribe for
a testimonial to M'Clellan. The commanding
officer of :one of the regiments—a favorite one
_writes tbat "we had raised $7B for the
arClellan testimonial when orders came from
Government to put a stop to it ;and we refund
ed the money to the soldiers."
we &lade to the matter eeiy to ehow that
the soldiers were forbidden by the Government
to contribute to a voluntary testimonial of re
spect and gratitude to their old Commander
Does a n y one kippose that the sbministra
tion will allow freedom to vote to those soldiers
to whom they thus forbid a free expreesion of
sentiment in favor of MTlellan ?
