ATTENTION I — We have sent bills, by let
ter, to many of our subscribers to the Sr*n
or TII a NORTH, who are in arrears for one
year or more; and, as yet, have received
very few remittances. We earnestly desire
that prompt attention should bo giv-m to
them, as we are much in need of money to
meet our payments
Our Collector will renew his visits upon
those patrons in arrears, tip Fi-hingcreek
and in that vicinity, in the course of a few
days. We hope they will be ready to meet
CONGRESS —The House on last Saturday
made no progress towards an organization ;
and it is now evident that the struggle will
continue until after the holidays,—the Be
publicans hoping to derive advantage from
the absence of a number of members who
cannot be induced to vote for Mr. Sherman.
The number voting on Saturday last was
but 206; Sherman receiving 100, and the
balance scattering. The last intimations
were that the President's Message would
be sent into the Senate yesterday, the 27th,
provided a quorum should be present In
relation to the Clerkship the last accounts
report that their is an increasing disposition
among the members to re elect Mr. Allen,
the present Clerk. The chances for John
W. Forney are poor.
DASTARDLY OUTRAGE.— On Saturday even
ing last, about 6 o'clock, a young mar., Ad
am Leiby, ol Harrisburg, was knocked down
and robbed of his clothespin the street, by
three negroes, or white men disguised in
masks. After the villains had stripped the
young man of all his clotheß they carried
him to a steep embankment and threw him
over it, which was some twenty feet high,
and nearly perpendicular. For some time
he could scarcely move his limbs, so com
pletely paralyzed were they with the ex
treme cold and the effects of severe bruises.
He is doing well under the circumstances.
No clue has ye*, been found that would lead
to the detection of the perpetrators.
THE contract division of the general Post
Office Department, is now engaged in prepa
rations for the annual lettings of mail con
tracts, which will take place in the ensuing
spring. The regular section this season
comprises routes in Maryland, District of
Columbia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New
Jersey, and Ohio; besides which, the mis
cellaneous services in every Slate and Ter
ritory of the Union, which was deferred by
the failure of the postal appropriation bill,
will be disposed of. The time (jxed tor the
reception of proposals is until 3 o'clock, P.
M., March 31st, anil the entire results are
to be declared by the 2llh of April This
will be one ol the largest lettings ever held
in the Department.
JUSTICE TO THE NORTH. — Hon. Mr. Mallory
of Florida, in a debate in the United Stales
Senate, last week, did justice to the Democ
racy of the North in the following declara
tion :—"1 believe, sir, that if there be in the
world a patriotic band of men, devoted to
the best interests of their country, and de
termined at every self sacrifice to maintian
them, it is the gallant little band of North
ern Democrats in these very New England
States; and I take this opportunity to mani
fest my confidence in their actions."
THE HARPER'S FKHRV INVESTIGATION.— The
Special Committee of the Senate appointed
to inquire into all the facts connected with
John Brown's foray have subpamaed Judge
Amy, of Kansas ; Mr. Conway, Congress
man elect from Kansas ; Augustus Wattles,
editor of the Kansas Herald ol Freedom;
Captain Montgomery, one of the Kansas
free State border ruffian leaders; G. P.
Lowrev, at one time Adjutant General of
the free State forces of Kansas ; Dr. Howe,
of Boston ; Mr. Sanborn, of New Hamp
shire, and Gerrit Smith.
THE members of Congress will be obliged
to go through the holidays without a cent of
money, unless the House make a Speaker.
The law authorizes the members to draw
the three quarters' salary, or about twenty
two hundred dollars each, and their mile
age, on the first day of the session. But it
also provides that their check should be
signed by the Speaker. The Sergeant at
arms has advanced above 640,000. The
whole amount due to the members is a
million of dollars.

The Deserted Tariff.
We invite attention, says the Daily Pcnn
sylvanian, of the leaders who are getting up
the Ten Dollar Tariff Banquet this week; of
the editor of the North American, who is
their organ and champion; of General Cam
eron, who directs the interna! tactics of the
party and of Mr. Henry C. Carey and his
school, who "do" the statistics, t" the re
markable fact, that in the authoritative call
of the Republican National (!) Convention,
at Chicago, just issue d by the Committee,
while all odter sorts of principles nra pro
fessed, not one word is said nbout a Tariff,
or protection, or domestic industry, or spe

' into all the Territories of the United Stales
j —to the re opening of the Alrican slave

| The reason for this omission of a cardi
j nal principle, we must leave to others to
explain. It may be that, resolute to have
no other issue but that of slavery—no other
; conflict but the irrepressible one, and since
' that the People's Parly of Pennsylvania,
(whom THADDEUS STEVENS long ago descri
bed as a "whippable article,") will agree
| to any term 6, the Republican leaders con
tempiuously throw the Tariff aside. It
■ may be that the great importing interest of
I New York, where the Committee met,
(Governor Morgan presiding.) set its face
j against any allusion to protection. It may
j be that the agriculturalists of the Northwest
; who especially desire railroad iron free of
: duty, and the woolen men of New Eug
i land, who have always been hostile to our
' local interests, demand the sacrifice. The
\ reason, we repeat, we can only guess at.
| The fact stands prominently forward. If
; Republicanism is to direct the campaign,
; then the Tariff is to go by the board. If
Mr. Sherman's parly, with whom our Tar
iff representatives, Messrs. MORRIS and
MILI.WAKD, are daily voting, is to rule die
day, then Protection, direct or incidental,
fades from the banners. If the New York
policy is to prevail, with its darling "ad va
' lor cat t" and its "Reciprocities," then Mr.
' CAREY had better throw down his pen, so
I long and so ably employed in registering
terrific statistics, and demonstrating the ab
! surdity of free trade, and go back to (lie
[ genial atmosphere of Upsai and Goltingen
I to study his theories in dismal Tuetonic
j and Sclavonic words, and find a higher and
; jusler appreciation among Hyperborien pro-
I fessors than he does among Republican
j politicians. If the Chicago platform of 'No
j Tariff and Free Railroad Iron" be adopted,
■ then our esteemed friends of the Phronix
| Company (who we believe to be active in
! the proposed protection festival) had bet-
I ter look elsewhere for comfort, and, hand
j in hand with the creditors of Montour, and
I the capitalists of Crane and Cornwall, seek
some other safer association. All this, we
repeat, we commend to the attention of
the gentlemen who are preparing the Tariff
I banquet, wbo, having by this time, we
i hope, caught a guest or two, must be think
| ing of their programme of professions aud
| Indeed, the fact of the "People's Party
j men" being ill treated by the Republicans,
j will give point to the festivity. It is in
I deed its excuse. But for this provocation,
i a Christmas carol—a huge frolic over the
1 fresh graves of Brown and his fellow mar
tyrs, might have seemed a little inappropri
- ate. Revolt, and murder, and arsou, and
hanging, and funerals are, one would think,
; rather serious matters. Our fellow citizens
j of Virginia, the mourning tamiiies of Mr.
[ BURKHAM andaiid Mr. TURNER, whom Brown
and his gang shot down from their ambush,
the humble widow and children of the poor
soldier who fell in the assault—tlie farmers
wltoae ricks and barns lias been burned for
months past —the vast body of thinking
mc wbo are alarmed or at least depressed
at Me ominous appearuqee of public affairs,
all these may wonder at the selection of
this time for a great symposium—but when
they nre told that under the provocation
we have referred to, it is but the expression
ol just sentiment, that it is meant really as a
defiance to technical Republicanism, as an
expression of a determination no longer to
be hectored by ultra leaders, they will
csase to be surprised, and find no fault with
the frolic. We really, under the circum
stances, shall look with quiet interest tcr
this convivial demonstration, the more so,
as it to be rather a gathering
of the leaders than of the rank and file,
who "in the present depressed state of the
■ Tariff interest," can hardly bo supposed to
be able to pay ten dollars for a ticket.
Recurring, however, to this Republican
call, we find it signed on the part of Penn
sylvania, by Mr. THOMAS WILLIJMS, the
representative.of the great manufacturing
city of Pittsburgh, and one may well won
der that he had not a word to say for the
poor deserted Tariff, and the interests of
the great community in which he lives.—
That his mind is somewhat preoccupied
with the question of repudiating the bonds
ot his county we are quite aware, but still
there Bhould, one would think, have been
some room for a thought about the other
greater interest. But the truth is, and this
is the serious moral to be deduced from
all this, that Abolition and Anti-Slas
very agitation is engrossing. It crush
es out all other considerations. The
Republican leaders are determined to
make but one great issue, and have flung
down the gauntlet of defiance to doubting
friends as well as to open foes, and the
sooner the advocates of a moderate and
reasonable Tariff understaud this, the belter
Daring Robbery and Attempt Co Commit Arson,
Night belore last, a girl named Mary Toy
effened an entrance into the residence of
Mr Lebnard Kramer, in Second street be
low Chestnut, and gathered together quite
a large bundle of various articles, with the
view to their felonious abstraction. In one
of the rooms she exchanged her wardrobe,
winch was somewhat dilapidated, for that
belonging to one of Mr. Kramer's daughters,
alter which she went to the cellar, and leis
urely regaled hetself upon a quantity of
pies, bread and butter, &c. As the night
was uncomfortably cold she returned to the
kitchen and made a fire in the stove, and
then took a re-survey of the several room 6
of the house in search of valuables. Arri
ving in one of the rooms, she discovered a
bed, and our lady feeling somewhat oppres
sed by the drowsy god, Morpheus, very
coolly reclined her wearied limbs upon the
inviting sheets and enjoyed a refreshing
nap. By the time she awoke daylight was
beginning to make its appearance, and
having none of the sluggard in her disposi
tion she sprang to the floor with commend
able alacrity, and smoothed down the bed
as if to remove all traces of its having been
occupied. Her next achievement seems to
have been the most criminal of all, though
fortunately the least successful. It was
nothing more than a deliberate attempt to
set fire to the house I At length she began
to hear the steps of people moving about
the lower rooms, and quickly making up a
bundle of the stolen articles, she sought to
make her exit from the house. In crossing
the balcony, however, with this view, she
was detected and recognized by a daughter
of Mr. Kramer, who instantly raised the
alarm, and the girl was arrested by Mr.
Kramer. All the stolen articles were re
covered, and believing the girl to be insane,
Mr. Kramer permitted her to depart, with
a serious injunction, however, not to trouble
the neighborhood again with her presence.
The girl departed in a sullen mood, evi
dently not satisfied with the interruption.—
Subsequently it was ascertained that previ
ous to visiting Mr. Kramer's house, the girl
had stolen a number of articles from the
adjoining houses. She is evidently a dan
gerous person, and should be looked after

LOCAI. NEWSPAPERS. —We cheerfully en
dorse the remarks of a cotemporary, that
local newspapers should be a complete re
flex of the business and prosperity of their
place of publication, and every one ought
to be impressed with the importance ol this
fact who has charge of such journals, it
should be the imperative duty of all busi
ness men to patronize, sustain and encour
age their local journals, not only for their
own individual interest, but for the welfare
of the community in which they are pub
lished. Local news of local papers is so re
garded by intelligent business men in every
place. It is through this source that one is
qualified to judge of the business an activi
ty of towns and villages; therefore the ne
cessity of liberally patronizing local papers,
not only by the way of advertising, but in
furnishing tbe material to make them en
tertainiug and profitable to all. It cannot
be expected that an editor is cognizant
of all that is transpiring throughout the
town and country, and for this reason ev
ery man should teal it a privilege to assist
in making public, through the local papers,
events of daily occurrence in the communi
ty in which he resides. By this course edi
tors can furnish through their respective
papers a complete record of all that trans
pires of interest in town and country.
WET FEET. —One of the most prolific
sources ol disease in this country is wet
feet. When pavements are covered with
slush or water—soaked snow—it requires
such leather as we seldom find in boots to
keep the water from penet ating. If it does
not actually reach the feet, it at least im
parts a chilling dampness to them, which
ascends the body as readily as smoke does
a stack. People whose system is not in
perfect order, are most liable to attacks of
sickness from damp feet In this matter
we are all equally interested, and thick
shoes may greatly prolong life.

HAKE WAT FOR THE NEW PHILOSOPHY.
It is the weakness of small minds to reject
new systems, simply because they aro start
ling. They forget that apples had been drop
ping to the earth for 6,000 consecutive years
under the noses of philosophers as well as
fools, before Newton deduced the theory of
gravitation from the fall of a pippin. Is
there anything Irrational, then, in suppos
ing that Thomas Holloway, a man of deep
research and strong practical intellect, may
have discovered and applied successfully
the natural antidotes to a large proportion
ol human diseases 1 Let it be remembered
that for many years this indefatigable stu
dent, shrouded in the fumes ol his labora
tory, was engaged in pharmaceutical expe
riments, all directed to the great object
which he claims to have attained. Nature
is a strict custodian of her mysteries, and
only discloses them when enforced by in
domitable energy and peiseverance. While
the disciples of old and effete medical the
ories were following the beaten track of
routine, he struck out a new path, and
founded a new system of treatment. What
has been the issue? Ask the world, for
nearly half its inhabitants have endorsed
his remedies. Besides the name that au
thenticates his Pills and Ointment, it may
be said that the broad seal of public appro
val is affixed to Itlpm, and that the certifi
cate of their infallibility bears upon its face
every written.language in existence. Sim
ple facts are the only admissible testimony
in a matter which involves health and life—
and the facts that go to establish the cura
tive properties of these preparations are
overwhelming. Of the sufferers from dys
pepsia, liver complaint, debility, scrofula,
and almost every species ol febrile, cutan
eous and glandular disorder—"a multitude
that no man can number" have cordi
ally approved them. Surely, those who
have recovered under the operation of the
medicines, are the most * competeut judges
of their virtues, and we acquiesce without
hesitaliou in their decision. — Leeds "Mer

ot February. The exercises are to consist
of lectures by leading reliable men, eminent
in the different departments of agriculture,
horticulture, stock raising, ete. About 80
lectures are provided for,—two to four each
day,—*ch lecture to be followed by con
versational exercises, questions, lectures,
and discussions. Twenty or thirty gentle
men, well known in agriculture, besides
the Professors in Yale College, are engaged
to take part in the exercises as lectures and
teachers, while numerous other eminent
agriculturists and horticulturists have ex
pressed their intention to be present and
participate in the discussions.
Among the lectures are Lewis 7. Allen,
Cassius M. Clay sad Francis Roteh, on Cat

Horses; C. I. Flint and others, on ths Dai
ry; the Hon. Marshall P. Wilder, Dr C. W.

In this story, written expressly for Tlnv

full scope afforded it; and we are able K?

its general contents, we may state that du

in works of the imagination, as so many
