    Malone. Yet it should be remembered
1 hat debts which in Europe would be
deemed light, would here cause our psi),
pie to stand aghast. We are not used to
being ground in the mill of heavy taxation.
But the people•of Europe have been so
long debt ridden and down—trodden, that
the itighteat burden taken from their
shoulders seems to them as great an alle.
Fiation he the payment of the entire debts
of many of our most heavily indebted States,
would seem to their population.
It cannot be remarked too often, when
we are disposed to undervalue the pre.
eminent blessings of our government, or
disposed to denounce as robbery, even our
comparatively moderate taxation. that it
would be wise to recur to the condition of
even the most favored na , ions of the old
world. Cross the ocean to Europe—tra
verse that land in every direction—witness
her half-clad peasantry—her mud howls
for her people, and her pa'aces for her ru
lea: Go to her manufactories, the famed
seats other greatness and hor power, and
there witness her half•atarved, blear-eyed.
area deformed laboter3—not overlooking
the moral blindness and ianorance eleven
her medium classes,—and then, on the
eiMtrary, mark the officers and menials of
government pampered, amid this vast la
ser brae of human woe. After these
things have A been seen, let him return here,
and even die" worst of our misgovernment
will seem lrke good government; and we
doubt not, even such a one woul•1 sat•,
..wh e t we have, we priv: not to the worth."

The Rail [triad.
We ara much gratified at the result of
the Rail Road election on '['u ';l ,y, and
hope that - it 'will be 'the means of induriog

the amount of stock required to ensure tl e
completion of the improvement.
The gentlemen who were most active
in-getting up the projcct of a Rail Road,
are , among the wealthiest of our citizens,
and from the zeal manifested in the prelim
ifiary movements, and their industry in col
!acting 'information and facts to show the
great utility df such an improvement, the
public were led to believe that they would
be the foremost in subscribing for stock
- when the books were opened. But we re.
grata.° say that public expectation was die
appointed. The books were opened, but
nest of the large .property holders visited
the room of Committee, and at the end of'
three days the Commissioners adjourned,

spirit of liberality which the public expec- ! -
ted from them.
We would not say or do anything that
would throw an obstacle in the way of the
Rail Road; we have been among its warm.
-eat' friends since the question was first
broached, but we would be derelict in
our duty as public journalists if we did not
• notice any indications that looked like
throwing the whole burthen of responsi
bility on the ci y. To protect the pea --
platform this, the Councils should not con,.
scusemate the subscription of s3oo,ooo,until
it is-clearly ascertained that the amount re,
quiradfrom individual subscription can be
raised, And that the large capitalists, who
were moat anxious for this undertaking,
and who urged so eloquently its utility and
adioantages, are willing to incur a small
portioh of the expense of its construction•
If these men will not subscribe, it will be
worse than useless, it will be unjust to in_
Ire the city further in the matter, and

will acciiiito the large property holders.
The wholeamount of stiiek should be
subscribed befo're the city is furtbei com
mitted in the project. By the terms of the
charter,. we believe no individual or cor
poration, it matters not how large their a
mount of stock may be, can have more than
thirteen votes in managing the busioess of
the Company. By ibis regulation it would
be in the power of fourteen individuals
whose aggregate stock would fiat exceed
$7BO, to control the vote of the city of Pius•
burgh, and to make whatever disposition
they might desire of her subscription of
$300,000! This is a difficulty that we
hope the Councils will duly consider, and
that they will take the proper steps to
guard against such a contingency.
We do not make these remarks with
the s:ightest desire to place difficulties in
the way of a speedy corn mencement of the
Rail Road, but we write under a full con
viction that it is our duty to watch the in
terests of the lic, t t give the alarm
when t here is any pri.hihilitr of their

The Ruff Road
By the returns of the election held yes
day to decide as to whether a tax should be
levied to pay the interest en the Vail Road
Loan, it will be seen that the measure
has carried by a largo majority. We con
gratulate the friends of the Road on this
auspicious result. Every conceivable
obstacle was thrown in th way of the sue•
ce,zs of t h;s project by Its opnems.
They re act.vely engag in every
ward—meetin : zs were held. and addresses
made, in which the tenors of hi 4 h taxation
were magnified to the extent of i.na,!rna
lion. In spite of these 4: Tort., th- majori_
ty for the Tax very nearly rea • ht-d 600
There can be doubt that this v f .t e is full
a n d eone!usire as to the wi-hes of the
people. If there had been a large r turn
out, the urikrity would have heel larger.
There might, perhaps, be room to doubt
the correctness of this position, if the ef
forts of the enemies of the Tax h d been
less enerrtic But they left no means s ith
in their reach untried, they were signally
defeatcd, and we hope the Council kill
construe the result as unquestionable
struction from the people to subscribe
5300,000 to the proposed Road—and that
they will do so the momont stiff) ient stock
is subscribed by individuals to complete
the work.
I Electione. —We will eoon bavo busy
times recording the roeults of elections.—
' They will shortly take place in Louisiana,
Indiana, Tennessee, Illinois and North
Carolina. In the first named State, the
I election takes place in the, first week in
July, and is for members of Congress. In •
diana and Tennessee besides members of
Congress, Govo rnors are to be chosen. In
diana, Goy. Bigger (W.) is a candidate fur
re-election, and is opposed by Mr Whit■
carob, Democratic. The election takes
place in Angus', and by the middle of
that month we shall know the result.
The election in Tennessee also takes
place in Aogu , t.
In inerrOers of Congress are to
be chosen also in August.
The election in North Carolina is for
ineinbers of Congress.
But the grandest struggle will be in our
own county; the contest of 1840, would
not make a patching for the bustle that will
take place in 1843. Perhaps there was a
little more noise and foolery on that acca
sion than we will have this fall, but the
bittetness of feeling with which the coons
fought the democrats then, cannot be co rn .

country gentlemen lately arrived at
Boston, aixi immediately repaired to
a relative, a lady who had married a mer
chant of that city. The parties 'here glad
to see him, and invited him to make their
house his home, (as he declared his inten
tion of remaining in the city but a day or
two). The husband of the lady, anxious to
show attention to a relative and friend of
hid wife, took the gentleman's horse to a
livery stable in Hanover street: Finally
the visit became a visitation, and the mer•
chant after an elapse of eleven days, found
besides lodging and boarding the gentle
man, a pretty considerable bill had run up
at the livery stab'e. Accordingly he went
to the man who kept the stable and told
him, when the gentleman took the horse he
would pay the bill.
'Very good,' said the gentleman, 'I un—
derstand you.' Accordingly, in a short
time, the country gentleman went to the
stable, and ordered his horse to be got
ready - . The bill was of course presented.
'Oh,' said the gentleman, 'Mr so and so,
my relation, will pay this.' Very good,
sir,' said the stable keeper, 'please to get an
brder from Mr —. it will be the same
as money,' The horse was put up again,
and down went the country gentleman to
the Long Wharf, where the merchant kept.
'Well,' said he, 'I am going now.' Are
you,' said the merchant, 'well, good bye
'Well, about toy horse, the man said that
the bill must be paid for his keeping.'—
' Well, I suppose that's all right, sir.'—
'Yes—well; but you know I'm your wife's

that you are, but your horse is not."

PITTSBURGH, lath June, 1843.
Gentletnen:—F lease to accept my grate
ful acknowledgments for your kind invite.
Lion, on bt half of your Democratic fellow
citizens, to a public dinner; and for the
approbation which you have expressed of
my personal and political conduct. It is
truly cheering to receive such commend
ation from such a source.; and this will
givo me additional confidence in pursuing
the same course iir which I have won your
regard. As my enasgements require that
I btiall leave the city oo Monday morning,
it %%HI nut be in my power to accept your
invitation: but I regret this the less, be•
cause I have already enjoyed the profit
and the pleasure of conversing freely with
many of the Democratic citip-ms of Pitts
burgh an.l vicinity who }nye done me
the honor of cal!ing upcn me at my lodg
ings. I confess I prufir tihs free and un
reserved intercourse to the formality of a
public dinner.
Dutiniz my short vis . t to the city, I have
üb~er•ed, with great gratification, such
marks of returning prosper . r . ty as cannot be
mistaken. The productions of industry
and the saviu2s of economy have chiefly
liquidated the large indebtedness created
by past extravagance and speculation; and
e are about to commence a new career c,f
prosperity. How long this may endure
ki ill depend upon nor ( - ‘n conduct. It we
have learned wisdom from our late severe
experience, it may he perpetual: but if we
should again he curse I by the spirit of cxs

more um-rring certainty, than that we
shall suffer the inevitable penalty of our
own misconduct.
With entiments of grateful regard, 1
