l'ciinsylvaiila Her favorite
Political parties have always looked with
much solicitude during presidential con
tests upon the old "Keystone State." In
deed it has long since passed into a saying,
that, '-as goes Pennsylvania, so goes the
Union." It must be admitted that she
has often decided the fates of men ; and that
the has often made Presidents for the People
of the United States. But somehow or
other, she never furnished the material to
make a President out of, until the year
185G. Other states in the confederacy
had becu distinguished in that particular,
l or instance, Virginia had furnished so
many chief executives for the nation, that
tshc long ago acquired for herself the title
of the "mother of Presidents." Perhaps
Virginia, and other states that we might
mention, have been more true to their
own interests than Pennsylvania, and very
likely they, have taken a much more live
ly interest in the welfare and advancement
of their sous. We do not doubt that such
has becu the case ; nor do wc wish to be
understood as condemning that policy.
In a confederacy like our own, formed as
it is of states whose interests as such are
not identical, it is but natural and reason
able that each state should feel a desire to
have selected from its limits, a head for
the general government. As a general
rule, men are selfish ; and states are but
combinations of men. They are jealous
of their rights aud their institutions. They
may not object to the prosperity of others, it
is true, but they have a strong desire to
prosper themselves. More than this, eve
ry state is proud of its great men. Great
men are the characteristics of a great peo
ple. Those states therefore which give
us men to preside over the destinies of this
universal yankee nation, are generally sup
posed to be gn at states, because Presidents
arc generally supposed to be great men.
Pennsylvania is a great state. We do
not know, however, that she has acquired
that reputation from the fact that she lias
furnished a President. We are inclined
to think on the contrary, that, in the eyes
of her sister states, this fact has diminish
ed her greatness. We have said, that,
although she had often made Presidents,
she never furnished the material for one
until the year lS5o. Party spirit had
always run high within her borders, but
in all her parties and factions, she never
until then found a man upon whose selec
tion she could insist. Franklin and a host
of others that we might name, Avcre all
good enough men in their place; but then
they were not the men for the executive
chair. They were permitted to pass from
the theatre of this world without having
attained to that distinguished position.
Thus the Republic had lived near three
quarters of a century, and Pennsylvania
had never yet had a President. Even
New Hampshire had distinguished herself
in that way; and why should not Penn
sylvania do so? It was unjust, unfair, be
littling to her, to have her claims forever
postponed. Her citizens became aroused.
They looked about them for a great man ;
and they found him. That great man
was James Buchanan. J ames had much
to recommend him. He had sucked at
the public teats for many a day. He had
been in Congress. He had been Secreta
ry of State. He was Minister at the
Court of St. James. And he had filled
many other offices too tedious to mention.
Was he not just the man for President ?
True it was, he had never done much for
the Republic, in any way; but then
everybody admitted that he had never
done anything against it. True it was,
he had been a little indiscreet at one time,
in maligning a good old man called Hen
ry Clay; but then Clay was dead, and the
indiscretion should be overlooked. True
it was, he had declined at one time to pay
his taxes at Lancaster, but that was read
ily explained by the fact that he then
thought seriously of making a permanent
change of residence. Why wouldn't he
make a good President ? He was a states
man ; his speeches showed that especial
ly the one on the ten cent question. He
was a profound man ; he had uttered things
which no man could comprehend ; he had
written sentences which no man could
decipher. ' Moreover, he was a Republi
can in practice as well as in theory.
Whilst in England, he had peremptorily
refused to appear in Court dress, among
the official dignitaries of that deluded peo
ple. He was conservative in his notions
too ; without any of the ruinous progres
sive spirit which characterized Younr
America. He was a fighting man withal;
he had shown that by showing his teeth
tc the British Cabinet, in regard to the
Central American question. But, to crown
all his excellencies, he was the "favorite
son of Pennsylvania."
So J ames was put forward by a party of
his fellow citizens, and received the nom
ination from the Cincinnati Convention.
By hook or by crook, he carried Pennsyl
vania, and Pennsylvania, as she had done
for former Presidents, secured his elec
tion. On the 4th of March, 1857, he was
inaugurated, and assumed the duties of
his office. During the Presidential con
test he had made many pledges, and had
committed himself, in the eveut of his
election, to the support of certain meas
ures in favor with the People. In his
Inaugural Address, he made still further
promises. It is a sad commentary upon
humanity that these pledges and promises,
in everything relating to the welfare of
the nation, have all been disregarded and
broken. He has, of a truth, "done those
things which he ought not to have done,
and left undone those things which he
ought to have done." The acts of him
self and his minions have given the lie to
every pledge and promise which brought
him into power, and have disappointed the
hopes of his most ardent friends. Time
would fail us now to enumerate the many
wicked and diabolical acta of his adminis
tration an administration so far steeped
in iniquity, and bloated with corruption,
that the honest men of all parties condemn
and despise it. We may, in our own good
time, take a casual glance at some of the
more prominent features of that admim-.
tration ; and especially may wc draw an
occasional tine sight on its illustrious head.
The reader will please bear in mind, how
ever, that we do not expect, on the strength
of any thing we may say about him, that
James will resign. He will fill the meas
ure of his iniquity to the brim ; and by
rewarding his enemies and punishing his
friends by doing the wrong and opposing
the right he will leave a record behind
him which the people of other States will
regard as a standing argument against
Tlie Slave Trade.
Among many other unpardonable sins
t'uit the present corrupt dynasty at Wash
ington has been guilty of, is its complicity
in the re-opening of the African slave
trade. This unholy traffic had been stop
ped for many years ; severe penalties were
enacted against thoss who should engage
in it ; and right-feeling men fondly cher
ished the hope that it would never again
be tolerated. Time, however, has wrought
a change. Since Slavery has become na
tional, aud Freedom sectional, the demand
for Slave labor has so rapidly increased,
that Virginia and other slave-breed inir
States have failed to supply the market.
Accordingly, (if we may credit the estimate
of Senator Douglas,) there have been no
less than 13,000 native Africans landed
on our Southern shores .during the past
year! Think of this, reader, for a min
ute. Who ever heard of such whole
sale kidnapping? Remember, too, it is
done right in the very teeth of the most
stringent penalties against it.
Why is it that a stop is not put to this
infamous traffic ? a traffic condemned
alike by the laws of God and man. Why
is it that the barbarous scoundrels en traced
in carrying it on are not brought to puu
ishmeut ? The answer is plain. The ad
ministration does not do its duty. The
oath that "the laws be faithfully observed''
has been violated; and the President and
his satellites wink at the trespass. "Oh,
Shame ! where is thy blush ?"
lilacli. vs. Douglas.
Since the appearauce of an article of
thirty-eight columns in Harper's "Weekly,
011 Popular Sovereignty one of Pennsyl
vania's illustrious B.'s vs. Douglas we
notice that a number of the faithful are
disposed to drop the "little giant," and
return to the fold. Wc regard both as a
bid for the Presidency, and would advise
all real friends of Freedom and Free La.
bor to enlist in the ranks of the People's
Party. Black takes the ground that Sla
very exists in the territories, and can only
be abolished by local legislation al ter such
territories have been admitted into the
Union as States. Douglas, on the other
hand, takes the position that Slavery may
be exterminated by Territorial legislation.
The People's Party differs from both, and
says that Slavery cannot legally exist at
all in the territories of the United States.
The result is, that Black and Douglas are
both wrong, and the People's Party is

In the present work, the origin, devel

ment and peculiarities of over eighty dif
ferent religious sects, are treated in a
style clear, compendious and accurate, and
will afford all the information which might
be procured with great difficulty and ex
pense, and much labor and research, from
the larger polemical works and encyclo
pedias. Dr. Smucker has evidently prepared
this work with much care, and it exhibits
great ability and learning. The articles
on the different religions are very impar
tially written, and show the careful study
of an unprejudiced and sound mind; and
the importance and value cannot be too
highly estimated of such superior and un
biassed effort in a work of this kind, as
too often, those pretending to give correct
information upon such subjects are preju
diced in favor of some particular sects or
denominations. Mr. Rulison has brought
out the work in a very handsome form,
and the public is indebted to him for a
very valuable, instructive and useful book.
The price, 1,00, is remarkably low for
such a work, and in order that it may have
a rapid aud extensive circulation, he will
send it to any address, accompanied with
a valuable Gift, on the receipt of the price
and twenty cents to prepay postage.

Reading for tiik Million. T. B.
Peterson & Brothers have this day issued
the second volume of their new and cheap
edition of Charles Dickens' works for the
Million, to be completed iu lis volumes,
one to be issued on each and every Satur
day, for twenty-five cents a volume The
cheap literature of former years did not
tend much to elevate their readers, but the
reading that Peterson now gives, at prices
which scarcely cover the cost of print
ing, is of the very best character, and
must exercise a wholesome influence over
the pufclje taste, by making all readers ac
quainted with the works of the best fiction
writers in the English language. A read
er in the country for one dollar can have
the first four of these volumes transmitted
to him, or the whole twenty-eight voluntas
will be sent for five dollars. The second
volume, issued to day, contains the conclu
sion of Oliver Twist aud the commence
ment of Pickwick Papers.
