Item an editorial article; strongly recora-
ending Davio Wilmot for' United Slates
Senator, to succeed Hon. William Bicier.
This chief of Republicanism, in Bradford
county, is according to . the Republican's
argument, entitled to some substantial pay
at the bands of hi party. He, VVilcnot, led
their party in the campaign of 1857; being
their "candidate lor Governor; ,and in every
political battle that has been fought since,
he has appeared among the most prominent
in 'their ranks. t Laying aside ail the hard
work he has ever done for the party, does
fie suit the limes ? ' We should think not,
moch less suit the editor of the Republican
or his party. ' During the whole campaign
this Reputjican paper was filled with tariff
preaching to the people of Columbia county,
and since, the election has claimed to have
elected its -candidates upon that issue ; that
tariff was the yery thing f the people and
the country needed ! But what do we find
it at now, this soon after the election?
Supporting Ftte Trade Dave Wilmot for Uuiv
ted States Senator ! .. This man David, Wil
mot, while in Congress, was an. out and cut
notorious Free Trader I and we have nothing
to satisfy us, or they either, -that he is
anything elue than just what he was when in
Congress.- He was the mly . man. ;from
Pennsylvania who opposed the Tariff both
by pate and fpeech I This is Dave Wilmot's
tariff record t llovr a party, claiming to be
a. Tariff Republican party, can support a
roan, marked with such, a record, is a little
singular. How the editor of the Republican
can have a "decided preference in favor ol
David Wilmot? we cannot v on Jerstand.
This same paper says, ' the people always
know where to find him," Should . thi be
the case, and Wilmot be so fortunate as to
get pitch-forked into the Senate, "the peo
ple would always find him" casting a free
trade vote I How would tbU suit the Repub
lican's tariff readers! 4 ,

We have heard so much about the con
servative course of Lincoln's administration,
that we have been waiting rather impalient
ly for a confirmation of the assertions We
have it. Of course the Sonth .ought to be
satisfied with such conservatism. ' True,
William H. Seward is author of the ."irre
pressible conflict," and is the arch demon
of Abolitionism. John Sherman and F. P.
Blair are endorsers of Helper's infamous
book which reccommends the assassina
tion of slave-holders, and John Hickman is
the gentleman who ' promises to whip the
South to submission, with 18,000,000 of his
northern brethren. The South can, of
course, rely upon Buch saving conservatism.

Fortunate for the country, the next Con
gress,' in both branches, will contain a clear
majority of Democrats. Sufficient returns
have already been recbived. to decide the
political character of the House of Repre
sentatives. An organization "will be effect
ed promptly and without difficulty by super
seding the present Republican officials,
Forney included, and filling their places
with Democrats, backed up by a good work
ing majority.. The gigantic schemes of
plunder which the adroit' and veteran
schemers of the Republican household
have long been planning in' view of Lin
coln's success will thus ' be fustraled, and
instead of. witnessing a transfer of the plot
ters and plunderers from Albany and Har
risburg to Washington, and the lobbying of
jobs that would disgrace the country arid
bankrupt the Treasury, we shall have vigi
lance and economy in the public expendi
tures,' and hold tight the national purse
strings against every appropriation not im
peratively demanded to carry on the Gov
ernment. With a Democratic House, a
Democratic Senate, and a Supreme Court, a
majority of whose members are of the
Democratic party, the country possesses
sufficient cheeks to prevent the incoming
Administration from carrying oat those
grand schemes of partisan aggrandizement
that have been the chief, if not the only in
centives for the election of Lincoln.

United States Senator.
The Republican party in this State, being
largely in the majority in both branches of
the Legislature have already commenced'
canvassing the claims of various distinguish
ed individuals fori the position of United
jtates Senator in place of Gov. Biglcr. The
scramble for the place is becoming interest-
Ling and as the candidates are coming forth
rather inconveniently numerous it is pro
posed to elbow Hon. Simon Cameron out
of the Senate and into old Abe's Cabinet to
make room for two anxious aspirants for
Senatorship from, this State Hen. A. K.
McClnre and John W. Forney." , These
two gentlemen have made their .mark, this
campaign and are certainly entitled to 6ome
consideration and reward at the hands of
their party. The laborer is always worthy
his hire! If: Douglaaism can be of any
service to Forney its aid may be relied up
onprompted by a deep sense of gratitude
for many favors bestowed. These gentle
men it appears are to have a harder road to
travel than they at first anticipated or laid
down in their programme. A number of
disinterested patriots a re out for the same
positions and are "sculling their 6kifTs"
with great dexterity. Among these men
tioned in this' connection we notice the
names of David Wilmot, Ex-Governor ' Pol
lock, J. R. Moorhead, Thaddeus Stevens, A.
H. Reeder, Thomas Williams, Eli Slifer,
Thomas M. Howe, Edgar Cowan, Henry C.
Carey, W. B. Mann and Motion McMich

, 1 The Straight-Ont Fraud. , -
The result of the election in this county
has fully established the fact the pretended
withdrawal of the straight out Douglas tick,
et was a cheat and a sham, and that the
advocacy of the Reading Ticket by the
Times was hypocritical to the last degree of
meanness. Many honest Democrats, in
the coonty, were deceived by false repre
sentations into voting this bogus ticket, but
the true men of the party understood the
move and spurned alike the treason and
those who attempted to impose it upon the
party. There was no such ticket in the
field by anv authority whatever. It had
been formally withdrawn by the Committee
who formed it, and yet men in this place.
professing to be Democrats, had it printel
here and distt i'uled m the County, and turned
out and electioneered : for it when they
knew it to be a deception and gotten up ex
pressly to defeat the Democratic party.
Some who voted the ticket, in this place,
are ashamed to acknowledge it while others
openly state that they were imposed upon.
Those who where the prime-movers in the
treachery can hardly claim any longer to
the Democratic party when they voted a
ticket put lorward by the authority of no
party organization. ValUy Spirit.

Some prominent Union men in Virginia
are making vigorous efforts to influence the.

the movement will fall to the ground.
THE EFFECTS IN NEW YORK. .
The Southern ; movements are already
having a serious effect in New York. A
letter from that city says;
. Southern funds are so hard to sell as to be
almost worthless to the merchant, and 10
per cent, is the current rate ol discount for
a majority of the bank bills of the slavehold
ing (cotton) States. . One authority declares
that men who thirty days ago could find
collateral which would obtain them thou
sands cannot to-day, upon the same de
scription of security, realize a single dollar.
But this is not the worst of it. The working
classes are beginning to feel the pinch at
their very hearthstones. , I have already
mentioned the suspension of trade by two
I leading clothing houses in this city, who
j jointly employed seven hundred hatdsf and
now must be added the discharge of sixty
more, from one of the principal silver manu
facturing establishments in the city. Some
of these were parties; who had served for
years as apprentices in the establishment.
The Williamsburgh tailorsof whom
many hundred just now have nothing to do
are to have a public meeting this week,
to consult as to what is best to be done. If
tbey have no work they cannot starve, they
say, when the granaries of tde country and
the store-houses of New York are overflow
ing with plenty of food.
Another letter, from the same city, says :
I wan told this (Tuesday) morning, by a
clerk in one of the largest wholesale sad- ;
dlery ware-houses in the city, ; which de-I
pend upon southern trade almost exclusive- j
ly, that business has entirely fallen off; that '
the clerks are in hourly fear of decapitation;
that the goods all remain covered, and the '
men idly kick their heels against the conn I
ter from morning till night Worse than all,
the same establishment has just discharged ;
two hundred workmen, from the impossi
bility of finding worx for them to do.

Mr. Editor : This is the caption of a
short editorial in last week's Republican,
which I purpose briefly noticing.; The
Doctor having been driven '.from every
former position which he occupied on this
subject, has resorted to s ublerfnge and falsi
fication to maintain an untenable point. It
was but a few years ago,-though, that he
considered it an honor to vindicate the
doctrine he now seemingly (for at heart he
favors it) disbelieved in. 'Tis passing
strange how soon polity can change a man's
piincipUs t - -
As 1 have always been somewhat scepti
cal as to the veracity ot his sheet, it is no
wonder that I scrutinized carefully his as
sertions, and especially in regard to sta
tistics. He says that "the census of 1850
shows that there were some 280,000 'midlat
toes' in the Southern States." There are no
itmullattoer at all there, though I admit there
are a few mulattoes. But that census which
he so confidently quotes, shows that in the
Southern States there are but 244 137 mulat
toes, so that he has misstated the facts to
the tune of 35,863. But further, in the Slave
Slates the proportion of the mulattoes to
the blacks is as 1 to 9 ; while in the North
ern or Free States, they are as 1 to 2$
That is, in the Slave States there is 1
mulatto to 9 blacks and in the Free States
there is 1 mulatto out of every 2$ black;.
Who are the parents, Doctor ?
To carry out the calculation further, we
find that in the Slave States the mulattoes
are only ll per cent, ol the black popula
lion, while in the Free States they are 40 per
cent, or 29 per cent. more. Again, in no
Slave State do the mulattoes equal one
sixth of the blacks, while in the strong Re
publican State of Ohio they exceed the
blacks by more than 3 000. The census
shows more astouuding facts than these,
and in a short time I purpose calling the
attention of the veracious Doctor to them.
But for his own sake, and the sake of his
party, let him say nothing about mulattoes

Bchefit. or Advertising It is often the
case that men come into our office and in
quire for the papers published in some par
ticular place, saying they would like to
find somebody's advertismenu They sit
down and look the papers .over, and it is
of'en the case that they are unable . to find
the desired, information. Not long since,
nays a Utica paper, a gentleman was look
ing tor the names and address of an Albany
firm to which he desired to make a consign
ment, but not finding it in the Albany pa
pers, be made the remark that he would
ship to a firm that did advertise, although not
liking their reputation. : This is one of the
r.iany instances, and protect conclusively
aze rate of local taxation, of mills on the
dollar for school purposes 5,53 average
number of mills on ihe dollar for teaching
purposes 3 37. The State Superintendent
remarks that the "work of education, under
whatever auspices, always requires a large
expenditure of time, and effort, and money.
The rommon schools are no exception to
the rule, although less costly by far than
any others. The very low average taxation
and cost of instruction exhibited by the ta
bles, are such as could justly be complained
of by the most parsimonious. But while
consoling to the prudent and thrifty tax
payer, as well as to the shortsighted, who
mistakenly regard school money as an end
instead of a beneficienl agent, they at the
same time sreak loudly to the hopefnl pro
gresive friends of the cause, of means that
are inadequate to the momentous results
yet to be accomplished, and plead irresisti
bly for the more rapid development of our
liberal and expansive educational policy."
The late State Superintendent further
says that he is "confident of the practical
superiority of our school system if protect
ed against crude theories, and rash Nova
tions whether originating in individual im
patience, local disturbances.' or covert hos
tilitysteadfast adherence to the general
provisions and essential features ofthe sys
tem, has been uniformly and earnestly
recommended. Denunciations have been
visited upon this unyielding tenacity of pur
pose by friends and opponents alike, and
alike nnjust. Time has effectually vindica
ted the soundness of the policy. The sys
tem is stronger to day, and ha been more
progressive, because oi it. Its future pros
perity will be in exact proportion to the
maintenance of the same policy hereafter."

Practical Amalgamation in Ohio Miss
Georgiette Tucker, a highly accomplished
white girt, a graduate of Oberlin College,
Ohio, and a successful lecturer ott literary
subjects, eloped, recently, from Toledo, in
that State, wilh a colored barber, and went
to Detroit, Michigan, where they were mar
ried, to the infinite disgust of the girl's
interest:ng book, conveying much truthful
information in regard to Southern life in a
very agreeable and attractive form.
The volume comprises a series of letters
by a Northern governess, and are written
with a refreshing ease which charms and
allures one onward to the conclusion. The
experience ofthe writer, and what she saw
and heard and participated in, in a true
Southern home, is detailed in a free, con
versational way, calculated to win and to

the age of forty-five to fifty, woman has
arrived at a critical period of her existence;
the stream of death flows before her, across
it is a bridge, called, ''the turn of life."
Beyond it a delightful garden, the pain is
beset with danger and guarded by the fierce
dragons of disease. Dropsy, Erysipelas,
Hysteria, Nervousness and other disorders
too numerous to mention, but armed and
prepared by Holloway's famous Pills, she
will pass with security into lhoe beautiful
regions and enjoy hersell till the sun ol lite
sets in the serene evening ot old age. INeg
ligence at this season is productive of the
most frightful consequences and death itself
would be far preferable to such a mockery
of lile. The nervousness, flushes and faint

system may be all prevented by a timely
recourse to these incomparable remedies.
