THE STATE TICKET
When they have been united, the De
mocracy of Pennsylvania never have been
defeated. The only chalices of ,an Opposi
tion triumph, are in causing divisihns in our
ranks. The Democrat, therefore, who re
fuses to vote for the State ticket this fall,
will act precisely as the Opposition wish
them to act. The men who compose our
State ticket, are acknowledged on all hands
to be worthy, honest, and upright. Their
capacity and integrity cannot be question
ed. They have served its people worthily
and well already in responsible positions.—
No Democrat can have - A reasonable excuse
for refusing to cast his vote for them.—
Their success, will be the success of the
Democratic party in Pennsylvania.
In Allegheny count• we are in a minori
ty, but the Democrats of this county may
be numerous enough to decide the fate of
the ticket this fall. It is all important to
the Democratic success in 1800, that we
should carry our ticket this fall. There are
those who will always go with the winning
party. The prestige of succccss carries
with a great moral force! Ilow impor
tant it is, then, that every true friend of
the Democracy in this county, and all over
the State, regard the subject in its true
light, and commence to work. The dif
ferences of the past are nothing. They are
past, and let them be forgotten; and let one
and all unite in a mighty effort to save the
old "Keystone State from the evil influences
of a factious and greedy Opposition. Let
us, next October, be able to inscribe upon
our banners, as in times pait; "Pennsylvania,
—the Gibralter of Democracy !"
IRON WEALTH OF MISSOURI
The amount of iron ore in the iron re
gion of the State of Missouri, is estimated as
follows: Iron Mountain, 22S feet high,cover
ing 500 acres, one mass of specnlar Ore,
weighing 230,1K.275 tons; average yield
at furnace, fifty-six per cent, or 125,0(14,93ii
tons of pure iron. Pilot Knob, next in rich
ness, is estimated to contain 43,973,77:1 tons
of ore, or 7.000,0(10 tons of pure iron. These
two deposits will furnish about 13G,0011,4 0)
tons of iron, the ore of which all lies above
the natural surface of the country. easily
mined, and furnishing the best of metal.—
Railroad iron, seventy pounds to the yard,
takes 1232 tons to the mile, and all the
railroads in the United States would take
of that ~weight of rails about 3,50104 x) tons
of iron, or 1140 of the deposit above :To
ken of. This is only the ore above the sur
This rich deposit of iron as well 'as that
of the Lake Superior region, is gradually
tending through the avenues of commerce
to our Pennsylvania coal fields to be manu
factured. At Pittsburgh, before three years
have passed, we shall have a dohen blast
furnaces in operation. all of which will use
more or less of the Missouri and Superior
ores. The advantages to our manufactur
ing and coal interests, as well as to the cai
vying trade, are obvious. In securing a
cheap production of iron—to meet the con
stantly increasing demand—it is demonstra
ble that it costs less to bring this rich, fat
ore here than to take the coal to the iron
deposits. Besides, Pittsburgh, in addition
to its manufacturing facilities, is nearer
than any other point to the great markets
of demand for the manufactured product.
Already, we have initiated a new brimch of
iron manufacture—the building of splendid
iron building fronts, which will soon become
a regular article of export to other cities
and there is no end to the new uses for
which iron is almost daily demanded. I tis an
article for which the demand is unlimited
and, as Pittsburgh is the central point of
the country for its cheap production, we
shall have here a constant and largeincrease
in this branch of manuthcture—an increase
which will directly benefit-capital and la
bor, and indirectly, will benefit :every one,
both produces and consumers.
The Mexican war is carried on more fiercely
between the State and the Church than between
the military aspirants for Presidential honors.
Juarez continues to carry out his decree confis
cating the Church property, and the Arch
bishop launches hisaarmless thunders at Jua—
rez's head. He has excommunicated all the
Liberal party. Tho latter have gained a few
advantages over their enemies, but nothing has
occurred to produce any more public confidence
in the restoration of peace and good govern
ment in Mexico.

STEPHEN A. DOUGLAS
That excellent aavaluablc. , American work,
Appleton's nett Cyclopedia, contains a well
written, fair, usually correct biographical
notice of Stephen A: Douglas. It appears in a
publication that was prepared -mostly by men
who, in:politici, nre'opposed to Mr. Dougho--
and, as we understand it, this article, which we
subjoin, was written by a'Re - publican who has
become eminent in the service of his party. We
mention this fact, as an explanation of any
want of friendly r 0 6 .4, tbay,beTeaderway ob-
serve in the composition. It is an article de
signed for use in history, sketching the life of
a statesman of positive views, by a partisan of ,
an opposite school. As such, we commend it
to the candid attention of the Illinois public.
What will strike the intelligent reader, will
be the entirely different tone and spirit of this
article from the diatribes of the selfish and Ina-
lignant conductors of the Republican press of

statesman, born at Brandon, Rutland county,

denied the right of the federal government in
prosecute B system of internal improvements
in the States, though he maintained the consti
tutionality and expediency of improving riy
eta, harbors. and navigable waters, and advo
cated a scheme of tonnage duties for that pur
poso to be levied and expended by the local
authoritlos. lie was mainly instrumental in
securing the passage of the law extending the
maritime and udm i rally jurisdiction of tbefeder
al courts over the great chain of ,t!orthern lakes,
having reported the bill as a member of the
judiciary committee, and put it •upon its pas
sage, when a member of the house of Repre
sentatives. Ho was among the earliest advo
cates of t h e annexation of Texas, and, after
the treaty for that object had failed in the Sen
' ate, he was one of those who introduced prop
ositions, in the shape of joint resolutions, as a
I substitute for that treaty. As chairman of the
committee on territories in 1646, be reported
the:joint resolution declaring TexaS to be one of
the United States of America, and lie vigor
, oualy sustained the administration of Presi
dent Polk in the measure's which it adopted
for the prosecution of the war with Mexico,
which was the ultimata eonserence of that
act. As chairman of 'the territorial commit
' toe, first in the House of Representatives,
and afterward in the Senate, he reported, and
successfully carried through, the bills to organ
ize the territories of. Minnesota, OregOn, Now
Mexico, Utah, Washington, Kansas and Ne
braska, and also the bills for the admission
into the Union of the Statea of lowa, 'Wiscon
sin, Califoimin, Minnesota and Oregon. So
far as the question of slavery was involved is
the organization of territories and the admis
sion of new States, he early took the position
that Congress should not interfere on one side
or the other, but that the people of each terri
tory and State should he allowed to form and
regulate their own domestic institutions to suit
themselves. In accordance with this princi
ple he opposed the " Wilmot Proviso," when
lirstspasae4 is the House of Representatives in
1647, as an amendment to the bill appropriating
$3,000,0011 to enable President Polk to make
fi treaty Of'peatei 'with Mexico, and afterward
in the Senate,,whimofferrzi u amendmet to
the bill for _ the
. orgtualzation of the territory
of Oregon. In August. 1847, however, he
offered an wpendment to the Oregon Bill,%ex.-
tending thcfllissouri Compromise indefinite
ly Westwaid to the Pacific ocean, in the same
sense and With the same Understinding with
which it was originellyadopted in 1820, and
extended through Texas in '1845, prohibiting
slavery in all the territory north of the paral
lel of 36 deg 80 min., and hy.linplietition
recognizing its existence south of that line.
This amendment was adopted in tile Senate by
' a decided majority, reviving the support of
every Southern Senator, but was defeated in
the House of Representatives by nearly a sec-
The refusal of the Senate to adopt the poli
cy of congressional prohibition of slavery in
all the territories, and the rejection in the
House of Representatives of the,proposition to
extend the Missouri Compromise to•the Pacific
Ocean, gave rise to the sectional agitation of
1849-'5O, which was the temporarily quieted
by the legislation known as the Compromise
measures with zeal and vigor and on his re
turn to his home in Chicago, tinding 4 them
assailed with great violence, he defended the
whole series in a speech to the people (Oct. 24,
1810) which is regared by his friends as one Oi
the ablest he has ever made. In this speech ho
delined the principles of which the compromise
acts of 1850 were founded, and upon which he
subsequently defended the Kansas-Nebraska
bill in these words These measures are
predicated on the great-fundamental principle
that every people ought to possess the right of
framing and regulating their own internal con
cerns and domestic institutions in their own
• . x * These things are all eon
ded by tho constitution to each . tato to decide
for itself and 1 know of no reason why the
same principle should not be extended to the
territories." Mr. Douglas was an unsuccess
ful candidate before the Democratic National
Convention in Baltimore, in 1853, for the nomi
nation for the Presidency. On the 50th ballot
he received 92 votes, the highest number given
to any candidate for that ballot, but of a total
of 2SS votes. At the congressional session of
he reported from the committee of ter
ritories the celebrated bill to organize the ter
ritories or Kansas and Nebraska, which effec
tually revolutionized political parties in the
United States, and formed the issues upon
whieh the Democratic and Republican parties
become arrayed against each other. The pas
sage of this bill caused great excitement
in the free States of the Union, and Mr.
Douglas as its author was widely and vehe
mently denounced, and in many places was
hanged and burned in effigy. The whole con
troversy turned on the provision repealing the
Missouri compromise, which Mr. Douglas
maintained to be inconsistent with the princi•
pie of nonintervention by Congress with sla
t ery in the States and Territories. After re
pealing the Missouri restriction, the bill de
clared it to be the " true, intent and meaning
of the act not to legislate slavery into any State
or Territory, nor to exclude it therefrom, but
to leave the people thereof. perfectly free to
form and regulate their dome4ip institutions
in their own
,way, subject only to the constitu
tion of the United Statei." Whatever diver
sity of opinion may exist in regard to the cur
rectilesi of this principle and propriety of its
application to the T,rritories, it must be adm,it
ted that Mr. Douglas has proved flitprot to it
under till circumstances, and defended it when
user assailed ur Violated. In ISsli Mr. Doug
las was again a candidate for the Presidential
nomination before the Democratic National
(A/11V ,ption at Cincinnati. The highest vote
he received was on the loth ballott, which stood
ior ;Ir. Buchanan 168, for Mr. Douglas 121,
for Mr. 011..4. ;n the congressional se.sioti of

debate in the Senate l Feb 2:1, lee avow

by several of the Democratic party.
Mr. Douglas has been remarkably 511,1,,51111
i n prolooti lig the local interests of his own State
during his congressional career. To him, inure
than to any other individual, is Illinois indebt
ed for the magnificent grant of lands which

the credit and develop the resource; of the

and advocate of a railroad front the Mississip

of the variogs committees of Congress on that
subject, and being the author of ,eyeral Lilts re

Mr Douglas' view: in regard to our foreign
relations have seldom been in accordance with
the policy of the administration. HO oppo-ed
the treaty with England limiting the I )regon
territory to the .lath parallel, contendlog that

visions in regard to the Indians could never be

Mexico 0,1100,i:09 to change the boundaries
and relinquish the atipuliitions in i•eciaN to the
Indians. lie opposed the ratification Of the
Clayton and Bulwer treaty. and endeavored
to procure its rejection, upon the ground,
among other things, that it pledged tho faith
of the United States in all time to come never
to annex:, colonize, or exercise dominion over
any portio . n of Central America. He declared
that ho did not desire to vific: , l;:tat wintry at
that time, but maintained that i tiM . ;-4 1 /Pqa
routes must bo kept open as highways to the
American possessions on the Pacific, that the
l.rrie would conic when the United States

and that he would never pledge the faith of the

might require. lle also declared himself in

Robt. D. Martin of Rockingham county,

whom are living. She died January 10. 1853.
