Att.enti*t to manners may notlappear, at
ftrat,vieWA64uive, any connexion with the
health Hittilia not so. All our habits of
body and - -mind are so intimately related,that
their mutual influence is great; and not one
of these habits can be named that does not,
directly iiiindirectly. affect the health. And
I maintain that icentlentanly manners prey -
alent in. good society., are favorable to health.

nor of Cheeterfrel:lian abstrditie4; but of

our fellow men, has a powerful tendency to
buoy up tl e mind, and make it cheerful;

Kr - Die Gszette is working away most
diligently; in the vain attempt to make
some capital for its party out, of the Tariff
question. ` lt seems .
eedingly out . of hu
mor becanse we - not the editors of
the Manufacturer wheo its alleged anti-ta
riff extract from that paper was written,
and petulantly says that that is our "only
defence " We should like to know what
better 'defence' we could have. The en,
tire suffiCiency of our 'defence,' too, is stit-1
parent from the fact that trite. Gazette is dri-
ven to extremities, and has been busy for
the past two days quoting irrelevant say
ings of Ooliticians and editors 4 every
State in (he Union, to prove its first posi
tion: - that - the Mot ning Post is hostile to a
Tariff. _
The Gazette ought to ba, the last paper
. ,
in the fitveld to inculcate the idea that a
party pnperis answerable for all the ptcu
liar vie Ws and varying shades of opinion
held or expressed by the writers and ora
tors of its party. How if the Gazette were
held accountable for the conflicting' otions
of that most corrupt and ill-assorted crew
which shouted and sang Harrison into the
Presidency in 18401 Or how if that paper
were held to be the especial organ of the
thirty eight Whigs, with 'Adams at their
head, 4lio voted against the late Tariffl .
Would that paper suffer itself to be treat
ed as the organ of that division of the
federal :party?. Not for a moment. And
yet the Gazette would make us secounta
ble for the views of Mr. Senator Williams,
of Maine, W. Easton, of New Hamp
shire, the Morning Post, of Yew York,
and Heaven knows who and what beside.
We do.not deem it necessary to do more
than allude in this place, to the oft-re;
peatec4 and as oft refuted, calumny about
Mr. Buchanan and low wages. It is too
miserab l y stale and contemptible to merit
studied reply.
The Gazette man says "he can put no
trust in our sincerity, while we remain
where we are," &c. We can tell the edi
tor that we have not shaped our political
course to gain his confidence nor approval.
When we find that we have either, we
shall begin to distrust outselves. We
maintain a Tariff fur Revenue because we
believe it to be expedient and advanta
geous to the country, and not, as the Ga.
zette does, for the purpose of effecting
political purposes. We advise the Gazette
to confine itself to apologising for dldams,
3rnolcl, Botts, and the remainder of the
38 whigs who voted against the late Tariff
bill, rather than again meddle with the
views of its opponents upon that subject.
The Times.
It is with much pleasure that we daily
perceive a change taking place in Mercan
tile and business affairs, and matters arc
now assuming a more firm and healthful as
pect. We ascribe this change to several
causes. The discharges antler the Bank—
rupt Law, however in some instances Irau•
dulent or unjust, unfettered many really
honest and active men, andihave:given them
a new start in lire. The great abundance Of
agricultural cross enable the farmers to ar
range matters with the country storekeep.
ers, and the storekeepers in their turn, to
accommodate affairs with the eastern Mer
chants. The Tariff has caused prices to
remain firm; has prevented many Factories
from going out of employ, and has restored ,
others Which were heretofore idle. And
above al!, there is a restoring energy, eirtue
and' enterprize, in the democracy which
cannot long be repressed or defeated. The
signs of the times leave tv . ) doubt of its
re-establishment in 1844,' and the hopes
and confidence of the p , ople revive with
the prospect.
We should now learn wisdom from dear
bought experience; and undying hostility
to that system of paper money which per
mits irresponsible monopolists, to flood
the country with irredeemable RAGS, should
and must form the controlling maxim of
every patriot. With the hard struggle of
the democratic party, the monetary affairs
of the country are gradually improving; the
corruptions of the banking system are slow
ly but surely disappearing with the extinc
tion 'of the corrupt institutions, and the pub;
lie mind is becoming fixed in a settled hos
tility to a renewal or creation of bank char
. terse
We thus have the pleasing prospect that
in a short time, depreciated bank paper will
have disappeared, and its place will be sup
plied with gold and silver, or the,mperof
banks that at all times.can be converted into
the constitutional currency, without going
through the shy!ock process of a shave.

News.—The Providence (Oteile Island),
Chronicltsays that ~a man brthe lame of
Loockernian lately -mdde, an at sank upon
John C. Legrantr, Esq., Secretary of State
of Pennsylvania."
The Chronicle is mistaken in making Mr.
Legrand Secretaty Offiliitiof-Pernasylvanial
he holds that offictkin Maryi*; ourSeere•
tary is the Han• A. V. PARSCifirg.
The Herald men appear puzzled to knew how
we can be in favor of a gold and sliver currency;
and at the same time "not object to money."
We can't arse any "iltaplioill mine in this;
at least there appears none to us. • -
We will "define oiavosition:" •
We are opposed to the present banking system
because, a - charter for a bank gives a few men.
privileges which are denied to the mass of the peo
?le. For instance: If a company of men without
banking privileges had one hundred thousand dol
lar+ which they wished to loan,they could only re
ceive interest for one hundred thousand
But a company with banking privileges can, with
a specie basis of one hundred tboasand dollars,
manufacture at but a trifling expense at least three
times that amount, and, of course, receive interest
for three hundred thousand dollars. They "receive
interest on what they owe," as Thomas Jefferson
This is one reason among the many we could
adduce, why we are opposed to the present system.
And we would ask the editor of the Herald if this
one is not enough ? It all, in fine, amounts to
this—the e /no are enabled to amass the wealth pro
duced by the many. Is Tula tear?
But we have said that we are not opposed to ALL
banks. We go for free trade in banking, if the
Herald can comprehend our meaning. We can
see:no reason why banking should not be throws
open to competition, like any other business.—
B tokers will then be responsible the same as other
men. It is not so now. When they tssue a dol.
lar in paper they must have a dollar to redeem it.
Should they attempt to swindle;they will be sent
to the Penitentiary.
Such a currency would not fluctuate—it would
be regulated by the natural laws of supply and de
mand. It would be like flour or any other article
of merchandise. If we had more than enough,the
over plus would ge where there was a demand for
it; or, if there was not enough it would soon flow
in. Il3' Let rot the editors of the Herald meet
this by the sickening cry of "not. specie enough
the world for the purpages of trade."lf.stxuse:':
np that argument in short order by an appeal to
Is what we have said "comprehensible" to the
Herald? We are in favor of n metallic currealy
for the ordinary business transactions offr fe, and.
of paper, (such as bills of exchange,) (ergo
commercial transactions, where specie would be
cumbrous an 1 inconvenient. And we can't see
why bankers should be bound together by a legis
lative charter; or, why the business should be con
fined to a few rich men.
Another Declination.
We are authorized to state that IVIr.WILLIAM
McIUNKIN, of Plum Township, who was nomi
nated by the Working-men's Convention, for Re
gister, declines being a candidate. The nomina
tion was not desired by him, nor is he willing to
be instrumental in placing in jeopardy the success
of the Democratic Ticket.

for examination before JuAice Findley, on
charge of being one of the principals in
the late prizefight,between Lilly and Mc-

John A. Morrill, who waived the cross

witnesses, the prisoner by advice of his
counsel refusing to answer any questions.
His counsel inquired whether the prisoner

prepared to give bail to any amount. Jus
tice Findley refused to take bail on the
ground that a justice ofthe peace was not
allowed to take bail in cases of offence high

was then charged,-also, with a misdemean

Bell and Sullivan, on Hat t's Island, some

which he left the city, bound for 'Cape de
Verd or a market.' After disposing of her
cargo and getting ode in return, this port
was made her point of destitta ion. On' the
voyage' the Attica') fever broke out, and in
its ravages carried 'off the best part of the
crew, and one or two passengers, amongi
the latter was Mr. Loyd. Titus ends the
life of a man, who from the force of cir
cumstances and not innate depravity, was
stigmatized as criminal and depraved. We
have always be!leved that Lloyd w s more
sinned against than sinning. His natural
generosity cf disposition made him a t7c
tiin. He al not fortitude to resist the
impo:tuni'ies of professed friends and was
led step by step, into diflicu ties and eutbar
rass:nents from which, when it was too
late, he found he could not cx•ricate him•
self. Mr. Lloyd, has left a wife and chit
dren to mourn his unhappy fate . —Pleb.

'Will you take this woman to ba" your
wedded wife?' said a ma , istrate who was
placing the indissoluble knot of matrimony
on a couple mutually attached to each oth

'Well, I swar squire,' said the male pir

3 candid admission. Mr. Adams, in his
speech, admits that himself and friends
have not, by their official duties, won the
confidence of the people:
'Now, this Congress had, it best, but a
short time to live; on the third of next
March it dies; at that day every man here
will be politically dead,
