The Tariff question is one that does iiot
(naturally belong to party politics. The
Democratic party and the Republican both
contain advocates ef the protective policy
and both advocates of free trade. In this
State, where our immediate interests would
be promoted by a Protective Tariff, all par
Hies, wi'.h fare exceptions, are favorable to
protection, and anxious that Congress should
:iegilate go as to develop our groat mineral
and industrial interests. Such bem the
condition of the public mind in Pennsylva
nia, this is the lasfState in the Union where
the Tariff issue should have been made.
But the Republican parly deemed it neces
sary at the last sesn of Congress to manu
facture as many issues as possible for the
purpose of carrying this Presidentiil elec
ion. For the western Mates tney aeviseu
ttk-e Homestead issue as the means of ma
ting political capital in that quarter For
Pennsylvania thev cot op the Tariff in-
duced Republican members of the House.
' .naturally opposed to the increase of duties
to vote for the Morrill bill as a political
Iodge. It was delayed until the close of
the session, and as soon as it passed the
House and was sent (o the Senate, a resolu
tion providing for an early adjournment of
Congress was passed by the Republican
roembers for the manifest purpose of
bringing the session to an immediate termi
nation, so that the Senate would not have
lime to act upon the Tariff bill, and so that
the Republicans might attribute the respon
sibility of its defeat to the Democratic
Senate. The Senate could not refuse to ad
journ at the time proposed by the House
without incurring the responsibility of pro
trading the session and for want of time
io act upon it the Tarifl bill had to be postponed.-
The House occupied months in
maturing and considering this bill, and then
ave the Senate but a week to reflect and
act upon it. The Republicans expeced
and wanted the Tariff bill to be defeated or
postponed for the purpose of using the
quest-on for electioneering purposes in
Pennsylvania. They succeeded in their
lesign, but what have they gained by it
in tnrr'm.r h Tariff issue upon the De
mocracy of Pennsylvania, aud attempting
to make political capital upon a question
which i9 not of a party character, and upon
""""""which the people of this State are nearly
all of one opinion, they have made a great
blunder, becaube they have led people to
investigate the question of responsibility for
the Tariff of 1857, under the operations of
which the interests of Pennsylvania have
not prospered as they should. That Tariff
was passed by the Republicans, who had
control of the House of Representative?.
N- P. Banks, of Massachusetts, the Repub
lican Speaker and a free-trader, used his
position to accomplish the reduction of the
Tariff. Lewis C. Campbell, the Chairman
of the Committee of Ways and Means, ap
pointed by Mr. Banks, engineered the bill
throogh the House, where it was passed by
a large majority, including many of the
most prominent Republican members- In
the debate on the passage of this bill Mr.
Campbell told the House that the question
of a Tariff ought to be withdrawn from party
politics ; and he even ' went so fr as to re
buke the Pennsylvanians for clinging to her
old policy "which sees no other interest
than her "iron and coal.
After fastening opon this Sia.e the Tariff
of '57 the Republicans were entirely regard
less of the interests of Pennsylvania, until it
was necitssary :o get up the sham Morrill
bill and ; pass it ihroogh the House, that it
miht be. thrown opon the Senata at the

defeat attributed to the hostility of Demo

Patriotic citizens of Pennsylvania, how
can you sustain a party whose leaders openly
promulgate such horrible sentiments as
these? Do you not shudder at the bare
thought of placing such men in power ?
Remember, this man Gidmng?, is a lead
ing Lincolnite ; and, but a lew days since,
in company with Cuhtin, addressed a Black
Republican Abolition meeting at Erie, in
this State! Are the people oi Pennsylvania
prepared to endorse the teachings of such
men as GiDDirGs, he infamous Carl Schurz,
and the tost of Abolitions vho have been
precipitated upon our State ? No ! perish
the thought J Up, then, Democrats! and
by one bold and united effort, put down
these miserable, Traitorous wretches, whose
sole aim is to precipitate our happy country
headlong to destruction.

call attention to the fact that, in this State

majority of the conservatives over Fremont

On Wednesday evening, 25th ult , at New
Orleans, the friends and supporters of
Breckinridge and Lane held an immense
meeting. The Delta, of the 27th ult., in
speaking of it, says :
The turn-out of the supporters of Breck-
inrid 'e and Lane last night surpassed the
anlicTpations of the most sanguine friends
of the cause, not in its numbers alone,
which far exceeJed those of any other pro
cession during ihe present campaign, but in
the genuine enthusiasm and spirit whicn
pervaded the irrwiense throng. The im
mense crowds on the 6'idewalks atte.sted the
universal tympathy in the cause by their
shouts and hurras, while every balcony and
wincow on the line of the march of the
cavalcade was crowded with ladies, who
waved iheir handkerchiefs and thro' gar
lands to the gallant youth who bore no
splendidly the banner of the Union, of the
r.ormtiitition and of the ri-ihts of the South.
Our local report will give the details of
this grand demonstration. We can only
say here that the display of last night gave
an earnest assurance that New Orleans does
not intend to be cheated or betrayed out of
her right and her reputation, as the great
metropolis of the South. The true De
mocracy will. not suffer her to be placed in
antagonism with the vast majority of the
people ol the Stales, from whom she re
ceives her chief sustenance, and with whose
people her own ought to be identified in
interest, leeling and purpose.
Cruelty lo Animals.
The forty-sixth section of the Fenal Code

Germans and Irish, Read, Pause and Reflect.
John M. Wilson, the author of the fol
lowing, a Lincoln Elector in'Massachusetts,
some time ago addressed a Republican
meeting,' in a speech of considerable lerrgth,
from which we make the following extracts.
The German'or Irishman, who can read
this and then vote for Lincoln, has very
little 6elf-respect" :
'In the heart of the foreigner beats not
one single noble impulse not one 6ing!e
throb of patriotism. He is so brutish and
degraded that he has no sympathy for any
thing but cabbage-and lager, 'potatoes and
buttermilk, or some other abominable out
landish dish, only fit for hogs of the street
Some tell you that many foreigners are
intelligent ; yes 'intelligent. How in the
name of the Almighty God can they say it?
Look at the Dutchman smoking his pipe,
and if you can see a ray of 'intelligence in
that dirty, idiotic looking face of his, show
it to me. Lo6k at the drunken, bloated
Irishman, with his rot-gut whiskey bottle
in his pocket, and' he drunk and swearing
and' reeling, and shows not in ihat polluted
face one spark of morality, intellect or edu
cation. -The idea is absunl--it is prepo9
"We must change the laws of the land,
and prevent these ignorant, degraded pau
pers here irom'voiing and holding office.
They are a set of unprincipled villains and
ruffians, who congregate in and Ground our
large cities and villages, and live by steal
ing from the American.
"Would you have the American to stand
back, and let a 'bloated Irishman vote in
stead ot yourself ? See the wretch as he
approaches his knees knocking and the
slobber of tobacco running down hia jaws,
and as he comes, you hear him hurrah for
Dimocracy," and here he comes fresh
from the bogs, just one year ago, and wants
to vote and because the boys cry 'move
him,' and he gets knocked down for his im
pudence, a great cry iomade about it by old
line demagogues. I say it is right, let
them stand back.
"Again : you see a lop eared, wide-
mouthed, mullet-headed Dutchman coming
up from the land of Krout, with the foam of
of beer stifl sticking to bis horse-tail whis
kers, and hrs whiskers and his breath smell
ing of gailick and onions enough to kill a
white man three hundred yards, and before
he can say anything in the world but 'Dim
ocrat' he must vote, and that vole counts
as much as yours or mine. This is outra
geous and abominable. These foreigners
that have carried elections for pIJ liners,
will have to learn their places. They have

no resistance lo such persons when they j

Too many of such men were made dele
gates to the Charleston Convention, and a
well nigh successful effort was made to
sectionalize the party, but 'fortunately they
did not succeed. They were met in their
traitorous attempt by a solid phalanx of
Jacksonian Democrats who thwarted their
base designs, and, wresting the helni of the
organization from their, hauds, saved the
ship from being dashed upon the breakers
of squatter sovereignty towards which they
were directly heading. Thanks to the true ,

So far as the organization of the party in
the State of Maine is concerned we have
cot been so fortunate. Our little Democratic
craft has been landed high and dry on the
same breakers from which true and manly
valor saved the national ship. Those who
held the helm now freely acknowledge the
disaster, and laugh at those who sincerely
mourn over the wreck. But true Democrats
must not despair. All damage done must be
repaired, and our craft must be got, off the
breakers before she goes to pieces entirely.
She must again be launched upon ihe open

work must be done in Norombega Hall next
In whose hand was the helm when this
mischief was done! Who was Chairman

never had a drop of Democratic blood io his
veins, and who has only taken temporary
shelter in our party, because he had driven
his own to wreck and ruin 1 The best of
hia days have been spent in open warfare
on the Democratic party, and, like Parsons
of Alabama, the heisht of his ambition
is to ruin and overthrow it.
It is now high time that the organization
of the Democracy of Maine was wrested
from such bands. The work has already
been neglected too long. Our foes feel
that we are now on the very verge of the
yawning chasm of Abolitionism, and that
one more step will precipitate us into the
gulf. From this destruction the party must
be snatched. It must again be placed on
the broad and enduring basis of constitu
tional principles. True and loyal men
must be placed at the head of the organiza

next Tuesday, the Democracy of Maine will
asain be on the highway to victory.

When very young, she was ricketty and
weak in the ankles, but was recovered by
healthy training. She was brought up at
sea side, at Ramsgate, her ankles pumped
on, and sea bathing resorted to. She was
very benevolent ; when she rode abroad,
which was on horseback, and often, her
purse always returned empty. She had
and still has a good appetite. Her mother
carefully inculcated in her a love for the
Protestant religion. She learned German,
French and Italian perfectly, knew a little
Spanish, and was an accomplished musi
cian and vocalist. At the age of 18, on
June 20, 1837. she became queen, in con
sequence of the death of her uncle, William
IV. Lord Melbourne and the Duke of
Wellington proved excellent advisers to the
queen. They dined wilh her everyday,
and being old gentlemen, would sometimes
drop asleep over their wine, when she
would tickle their noses. Very soon Lord
Melbourne thought she should be married,
and, on his stating it in diplomatic lang
uage, she did not understand him, and re
plied : "Let me have the Duke of Willing
ton '." Explanation being offered, she ob
jected to her cousins of Cumberland and
Cambridge, and suggested "poor Albert."
It proved a happy choice, as the young
prince makes an excellent husband.' It
was said that the queen liked Lord Elphin
stone, but he was sent to Madras, to get
him out of the way. The youug couple
started in life with a mutual income of
8650,000. It was not too much; they

The ;Evils of Medical Malpractice.
"The report of the City Inspector," says the
New York Herald of the 9th May, I860,
't0 the Board of Health which we publish-
ed yesterday, revpals an alarming state -of
affairs in the condition of the public health
showing not 'ouly an increase of 1,819
deaths within the past four months over
those ol last year, but a Irightful increase of
mortality from scarlet fever, croup, bron
ch'uis and pneumonia the incttsrsfe of
deaths from these diseases forms one fourth
0f the total. This fact warns us of the ne-
cessity existing for some means of protec-
tion against unskilled and half educated
Physicians. The public are thus constantly
exposed to malpractice at 'the hands of igno
rant men, who follow the profession merely
as a means oi making money, without the
ambition or the qualifications which pertain
to the educated practitioner." How widely
different have been the results in the above
disorders from those who have t3.ed Hollo
way's Pills and Ointment is manifest by the
fact that not a single case of death occurred
wherever the Pills and Ointment had been
taken in time. Thonsaud of mothers owe a
debt of gratitude to Dr. Holloway for being
the means of saving the lives of their dr
lings. There is no idle theory or specula
tinn in the use of these medicines. The
effect is invariably the same sure and cer
tain where all the instructions gien are
strictly fulfilled. The Pills cool and purify
the hlood, while the Ointment locally ap
plied in scarlatina, croup or bronchitis, al
lays the inflammation and speedily restores
the little sufferer to the enjoyment of health.
In Europe, we learn that hundreds of lives
have been saved in cases of diptheria, for
which the Ointment is a certain cure, and
for all diseases affecting the throat, pene
trating as it does, the affected glands, which
no internal medicitre alone can reach so
effectually as to act with sufficient celerity
to save the patient. This extraordinary
Ointment will give permanent relief to all
asthmatic patients, and may iheretore be
considered as a sovereign remedy.
"Short calls are best," as the fly said
when he lit on a hot stove.
Ihltoicy's I'iHs and Oitttment.-lie only
is wi-e who seeks safely in precaution.
Lile is uncertain, thousands in the vigor of
health to-day will never see to-morrow.
The varying atmosphere, the raw piercing
winds warn us of winters approach with its
icy blasts and ruthless courges ; Coughs,
Colds, Sore Throats, Asthma, Bronchhitis
Pleurisy. Consumption, Rheumatism. Chil
blains, Frosts bites, &c. The wise and cau
tions will immediately have recourse to
those powerful invijjorators Holloway's Pills
which enable the lungs to resist the deleter
ious effects of the weather and fortify the
constitution to withstand the rigors and in
clemencies of winter. The Ointment is an
infallible remedy for inflammation of the
throat, and all disorders of the chest pro
duced by violent colds, it also fives speedy
relief to the organs of respiration.
