A Thrilling. Eloquent Appeal Against
C. W. Carrigan, of Philadelphia, at the
late great Democratic meeting, made one of
the most eloquent speeches denunciatory of
Know Nothingism and Abolitionism, and in
defense of the principles of Democracy, we
have perused in a long time. We should
like to publish the whole of it, but our space
will allow us to give only the concluding por
tion. Said Mr. Carrigan :
"This Know Nothing organization (and I
am dealing with their principles, not their
men,) also tramples upon the right of-•suf
frage. In the State Council that assembled
in this city last October, the following reso
lution was offered and adopted': 'That the
members go armed and seize upon the ballot
"They must go armed to--the ballot box,
not with that
'Weapon that is surer set
And firmer than the bayonet—
A weapon that comes down as:stilt
As snow flakes fall upon the sod,
And execute a freeman's will
As lightning does the will of God:
Not with the ballot—the scepter of American
Freemen—[immense applause,] but with the
knife and pistol. A. more gross outrage upon
thf. ballot box was never contemplated.
"In Cincinnati, at their last municipal elec
tion the ballot boxes of .the Eleventh - and
Twelfth Wards were taken possession of by
a Know Nothing mob, broken to pieces, and
their contents given to the torch, and this,
too, by Americans who desire to show how
'well they wbt.dd - rule America: What a sight
for a free people ! But their treason to the
Constitution arid utter disregard of the sanc
tity of the ballet box, was more fully evin
ced iu the late horrible riots in the city of
Louisville. The right of franchise was de
nied to all men whose eyes first opened on a
foreign soil. They cared not whether he
was Protestant or Catholic, Irish or German,
whether they or their fathers had fought and
bled for their adopted country. It was sufll
cient to know that their .birth-place was not
here ; they were ignominiously trampled on
and ruthlessly assailed ; men, women and
children murdered and their dwellings given
to the flames. Such a holocaust of bleeding
hearts, burnt homes, and blazing dwellings,
constitute a fit monument for an organization
conceived in tyranny and nurtured in blood.
[Long continued applause.]
"Iponthe plea of Americans ruling Amer
ica, they have been guilty of untold excesses.
The human heart is palsied as they pass in
review before it. 'Americans must rhle
America,' and with sacrilegious indifference
they invade the sanctuary of the Lord, and
disturb the communion of the soul with its
Maker. 'Americans most rule America,' and
in secret conclave they advise the carrying
of dagger arid pistol to the ballot box.—
'Americans must rule America,' and with
hideous yells and demoniac shouts they stifle
free speech and attack the free press. 'Amer
icans must rule America,' and they hang an.
liishman on his own porch, in the presence
of his wife arid children, and they. give his
dwelling to the flames. 'Americans tuust
rule America,' and they blow out the brains
of a child in the arms of its mother, while
all around are mutilated bodies and burning
houses. 'Americans-must rule America,'
and from 'rank showers of blood, and the red
light of blazing.roofs, they build the rainbow
olory, and to shuddering conscience cry,
'We are "ruling America!!' Great God ! what
a picture to the brightest era of civilization
What scenes for a republican government !
Anarchy and blood-shed triumph over Amer
ican • liberty. Free speech outraged, free
press attacked, freedom of conscience viola
ted, free suffrage trampled underfoot, arson
run riot, citizens murdered, and constituti
tion a rope of sand.
"Oh, ye members of this secret organiza
tion, (I speak to you now as men—as erring- 1
men,)' who are upon the threshold and anx
ious to leave, fly at once to the protection 'of
your constitution. • The guardian angel of
our destinyhas moved the waters, and now,
this?night, step in acd be made whole. It is
a duty you owe to your fathers and• your
selves. Rally with us to the support of
American liberty. [Great cheering.] And
you 'old line Whigs,' who constitute .the
guard about the tomb of Clay—who love his
memory and cherish in your heart of hearts
his paternal and patriotic sentiments, • this
night your country calls, and his spirit in
vokes you to assist in staying the rushing
tide that wouldsweep away the constitution
al obligations he has so often defended. [Ap
plaiise again and again.]
"And you, Deinocrats, with upturned faces
and flashing eyes, take heart from this
night's work. ''The constitution must and
shall be preserved'.' [Applause.] •The revo
lution-commenced sorne months ago , and-the '
Old Dominion haii been answered North
Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee, and Texas,;
and only a few - days ago the good old State
of Maine, standing upon the Constition, heat
down a combination of Ihe very worst lanat- '
icism. 19reat applause.] And now, this
night, the old 'Keystone' begins to speak.—
Her noble sons rally for the Constitution and
the Union. Her indomitable Democracy will
soon speak in thunder tones. [Veheme
'Ours is no sapling, chance sown by the fo -
Blooming at Belfane, in winter to fade,
' When the whirlwind has stripped every I f

The more shall Clan Alpine exult in I r
Moored in the rifted rock,
Proof to the tempest shock,

"In sunshine or storm; come weal or wo
we will stand by the faith of our fathers.
They may strip us of the green leaves - of sn - 4i
cess ; they may lop off, one by one; the bran
cies, of our strength ; - but the old Democratic
trunk will stand,and lift aloft its defiant front.
Moored in the rifted rock of the Constitution,
proof to the tempest shock of all fanaticisms,
'Firmer he roots him the ruder it blows.'
"Then upon this sacred spot do we join
hands, and renew to one another our devotion
to the common bond. The spirits of Wash
ington. Jefferson, Jackson, Clay and Webster,
from the classic shades of Mount Vernon,
Monticello, the Hermitage, Ashland arid
Marshfield, are imploring us to protect the
Constitution—to .preserve the Union. We
send back this answer from Lewis Cass and
Edward Everett, James Bdchanan and Rich
ard Rush, George M. Dallas and Daniel S.
Dickinson, John C. Breckinridge and Robert
Winthrop, Alex. H. Stevens and William B.
Reed ; from the North and South ; cost and
West ; from the mighty army of - national
men everywhere—the Constitution shall be
protected; the Union shall be preserved.—
There beats not the heart, there moves not
the arm, there exists not the steel that can
penetrate the panoply of such true Ameri
cans. Surrounded by such defenses, the
Constitution is safe—the Union secure. We
'smile at the drawn dagger and defy -its i

Who Shall Rave 4?
BY TIRIAH H. JUDAH.
There is a Goddess , and her name is Fame.'
She had a crown of glory to bestow, and she
assembled around her several applicants for
so grand an honor. Each was anxious to be
the lucky recipient, but it was reserved for
him"who could present the highest claims.
The first who approached was a venerable
man of long told
.years, bland in_ his manners,
and mild in his aspect. "And what, try
friend, entitles you to it 1" asked her lady
ship. -"I , have devoted almost my entire
life," replied the aged ,speaker, "to study ;
I've written and published various philosoph
ical works, my name and fame have been
heralded through the old and new world, and
man pays homage to My genius." "It is
well, replied the Goddess, "your claims will
be duly considered."
And he who next approached was a young
man of quiet and genteel bearing, and it
was thus he presented his claims for the glo
rious boon ;
"Lady, although not ,stricken in years, and
but just entering on the active scenes of life,
as short as has been my span, I've accom•
plished something. lam the author of the
well known poem on 'lmmortality,' and the
ablest - editors in the country have copied and
eulogised my production."
And there stood in the presence of the God
dess one of military attire, bearieg the hono
rable scars of many a well fought battle,—
who spoke of the "clangers he had braved,
and how he had preserved untarnished the
glorious stars and stripes of Columbia's ban
There came another applicant for the prize
—a plain blunt man, attired in the garb of a
sailor, whose rough visage denoted that he
had contended with many' a storm on the
fAthom 1 ess deep.
And what wonderful things have you per
forrfted 1" asked the Goddess.
"Please your Ladyship, from boyhood I've
been a ranger on the ocean ; born, I might
say, on the mighty deep, the sea has been
my home; often have I seen the lightning
level our spars, and in many a violent gale
I've heard the thunder in its tremendous roar;
I have rescued many from a watery grave,
and saved the infant as it clung to the neck
of its dying mother."
He who next appeared was - of careworn
brow; -meagre were his looks, tattered were
hts clothes, and chill penury had almost worn
him to the bones.
It was thus Ire spoke to the Goddess : "La
dy, I am an author—a poor and ill-clad auth
or; in my miserable garret I live a miserable
existence for I have no wherewith to satisfy
the cravings of hunger. It is the fate of ge
,nius to contend with poverty, for as-a broth
clingeth to a brother, so the ills of life cling
unto me. One half of my years have been
devoted to Literature; long has been my
struggle for 'a local habitation and a name,'
but as yet I have found neither; and lady, if
thou wouldst do an act of mercy, bestow on.
me thy crown of glory, and fame and fortune
will be mine."
And next there came one, of gay attire and
lofty bearing, who urged his claim as fol
"A merchant, Lady, extensively engaged
in commerce, my warehouses are crowded
with merchandise, and my ships float on ev
ery sea - my credit is unbounded, and my re
sponsibility has never been doubted-; I have
extended the hitherto restricted limits of
trade and overstocked the countries of the
earth with the,commodities of my-own."
And lastly there_came forward one who
stood abashed in. the
,presence of the Goddess,
he spoke very low, and with great timidity :
"Lady, my claims are very trivial, and
not worthy to relate. ram the friend of the
poor, the unprotected, and the fatherless. I've
placed bread on the empty tables of the fam
ishing, and ever have beer. the champion of
the weak against the strong ; over the faults
and failings of erring humanity have thrown
the broad mantle.of Charity.-; and would
that others should do uato - me, hove I done
unto them. I have clad and comforted the
sorrow-stricken orphan, and caused the wid
ows heart to rejoice ; I've plunged into
NOVEMBER 7, 1855.
the :nidst of pain and sickness, and bound up
with the sweet , cords of - pity the aching
brow and have spread the healing balm of
commiseration on the bleeding heart. Yet,
Lady, I claim no merit for these things, in
the doing of which I but discharged my duty
to my fellow creatures and my God, and had
I not been summoned to your presence, I
should not have appeared as a, competitor for
a prize to which I am not entitled."
And he was about modestly withdrawing
from her, presence, when the Goddess arrest
ed his progress
"Sir ' to you alone belongs my crown of
'glory, for you have richly. earned it. I be
stow it upon the good man in preference to
him who is great; great genius or great tal
ents, if not allied to greatness of heart, avail
eth nothing. True fame consists in deeds of
charity and brotherly love. The Philosopher,
"Abe Poet, the Author, the Mariner, and the
Merchant, may each and all make their
mirk on the age in which they live, and il
'nitrate the truthfulness of the beautiful lines
of my - friend Longfellow, that
Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sand of time ;
Footprints that perhaps another, '
Sailing o'er life's solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeino shall take heart again,
But it belongs to the good to receive, when
earthly crowns of glory shall wither and de
cay, that ever blooming diadem—that eter
nal crown--which awaits the pure in heart
at the final day."
Young Ladies' Allowances
On this point a writer in Graham comes
to particulars. He states that the great out
cry against the extravagance of dress in our
country renders an examination into facts
desirable, and advocates particularly, a regu
lar allowance as the best thing to keep purse
and imagination within bounds :
"In England, the marriage settlements
generally provide the wife' with pin-money,
varying, of course, according to the fortune
arid position of the parties. It is customary
in' England, also, for a father to give a daugh
ter a yearly allowance for- her dress, as soon
as she paSses the Rubicon of theschool-room,
and is what is called "out," which great
event takes place at the age of eighteen.
"Many.noblemen's daughters, in the very
highest 'circles, have not more than two hun
dred pounds sterling a year, tone thousand
dollars.) This, indeed, - is a very magnificent
allowance—many girls have sixty, and some
contrive to make a very fair appearance pp
"This, for those moving in society, with
morning concerts, dinner-parties, and a ball
every night, of course demands great ingenu
ity. girls, however, are only required to
display taste and elegance; magnificence,
whether in silks or jewelry, is not for them-
The season, too, in London, lasts but from
three tri'four months; it is in the spring end
summer - when muslin dresses and- all
cheap fabrics are worn in the day, in. prefer
ence to silks. •
"During the other months of the year,
there is very little dress required. At coun
try houses, it is bad taste to wear any but.the
most unpretending costume during the day,
and for dinner dresses, those exhibited in
London will do.
"At watering-places, no variety of dress
is deemed necessray, excepting at the Ger
man baths, so much frequented until within
r the last year, when the campaign of the alli
ed armies, and the fear of a German revoln-,
Lion, kept people at home. At these baths—
Baden, Carisbad, Kissengen—the dressing
and promenading begin at six in the morn
ing, and are carried on with great vigor, at
the ra le' of five toilettes a day.
"In France young lages have no allowance,
because they are not permitted to exercise
either taste or discretion in the choice of
their dress—mamma dresses them, and papa
pays most moderate and modest bills with
out the slightest murmur. All the ex
pense is for mamma, but though amongst
some of the higher classes, the nobility of the
old Napoleon, and the richer classes, the
bankers and brokers, there is a fabulous de
gree of extravagance. A French woman is,
in general ; rather inclined to economy than
extrai4gance—neatness and taste go a great
way, and have more to do with elegance
than we think. Some ladies dress very well
upon fifty francs a month, (ten dollars)---
eighty or a. hundred is the avat age allowance
for the middle classes.
"French women possess, to an extraordi
nary degree, the spirit of order; they are also
quick and clever arithmeticians, and I herefore,
never liable to self-deceptions as to the price
of things, as many young ladies with less
mathematical heads are apt to be. For in
stance, a silk is marked and offered for sale at
one dollarand ninety-five cents a yard—q-low
cheap I" cries the youne c' lady, because the
only figure impressed on her mind is the one
dollar; the ninety-five cents is not put down
as an item, though afterwards, on reflection,
it is found that two dollars, and not one,
sbould have been the figure impressed on the
mind, as it. is afterwards on the purse.
"A.yenng lady in the large cities of the
United States should be able to dress taste
fully., elegantly, and according to the
season, on two 'hundred dollars a year. This,
of course, implies some industry and taste on
her part, a great deal of tidiness, and great
care never to wear within doors the costume
destined_ for without. Neatness of all the
accessories to the toilette—such .as under
sleeves and collars—elegance in the ,way a
dress is cut and made, extreme attention to
the smoothness of the hair, are all that is re
quired for borne. Plain muslin, mousseline
de !eine, and simple braids or curls, will be
fit household duties and the fireside home
much better than silks, embroideries, and
flowing ribbons. These, if worn at all, should '
be reserved for gala days,, the promenade, and
then with great sobriety as to quantity and
color, and invitationsto friends from the so
cial tea party to the brilliant ball."
A Lion in the Path.
From a record of sporting adventures in
South Africa, recently pliblished in an Eng
lish Magazine, we make the following ex
tract. It is as thrillingly graphic as anything
we have met with for some time :
Whilst breakfast was preparing, I proceed
ed to take a saunter down to the pool, not
without some faint hopes of a bath,_ though
I feared our horses, to say nothing of the
other animals who had visited it during the
night, might have mudded it too much for
that. However, I resolved to try, and throw
ing my Minie into the hollow of my arm,
and cocking my wide-awake over my eyes,
lounged down a path among the bushes, now
well beaten by the feet amen and horses.—
The latter Ifound up to their bellies in the
pool, enjoying themselves as completely as
the flies would let them; but as the water
looked uncommonly turbid, I thought I would
skirt along a little to the left and look for a
cleaner spot , and so, climbing a short steep,
covered with. long grass and underwood, I
pushed aside some branches which interven
ed between me and a small' clear space of
shorter turf, and—to my very intense aston
ishment, though I roust say not at that mo
ment to• my dismay, I was so used to the
sight of them—found myself within a few
yards of one of the finest male lions I ever
saw, and who was engaged with a look of
grave patriarchal interest in watching the
movements of the horses below--doubtless
selecting one for his breakfast. Have you
seen Lanciseer's etching of the lion in the
old Tower Menagerie? In exactly the same
attitude, still and unmoving, like a noble
statue, stood this neighbor of mine; and for
a few seconds," remained really lost in ad
miration of the grand beauty of the "tableau"
It was, however, necessary to decide on
some line of action immediately. I could
not help hitting him if I' Choose to fire, but
if I did not kill him outright with one shot,
-he was so close to me that I could hardly
hope to escape without at ugly brush. Sure
ly this was a case in which ciiscretion would
be the better part of valor; and, as he was so
absorbed in contemplation of the horses
low that he had not yet noticed me; I "COLT
eluded" (as Jonathan would say) to steal off
as I came. Ah that dry twig that would
place itself in the way of my very first retro
..ade footstep ! The sharp crackle effected
what the more subdued noise of previous
movements had not done, and with a short
startled growl, the beast swung himself round,
and in a second was staring at me with a
look which said, "Hallow ! who are you ?"
as plainly as look could speak. Instinctive
ly I threw my rifle forward, cocking- it at the
same moment, and some seconds of perfect
immovableness on each side ensued, during
which I was trying to make out whether he
would change or not. The study of physi-
ognomy is doubtless pleasant enough on the
Iwhole; but when your subject is a•big male
lion; and the - question depending on the study
, whether you shall summarily be "smalThed"

minds in moments ofperil. That very move-

to my recollection most vividly a bitterly
parallel scene in my aunt's garden at flarrow t
where I watched her cat gathering herself
up in an exactly similar way to pounce on a

I was lying on my face among the long
grass at the top of the little steep I have men

the lion close to me. I could hear his deep,
short, angry breath, like staccato purrs of an
enormous cat--could detect a smacking
noise, which I afterwards found arose from
his licking a stream of blood which flowed
down the side of his nose, from a deep Sere

anecdote for Farmers.
We have seldom read anything more
sible or apropos than the fodowrng remarks
and anecdotes fr9it that excellent contempo
rary, the Maine Farmer, illustrating the im
portance of the proper care of stock:
We may send to England for Durham
cows, or to Spain and Germany for the choi
cest sheep; we may search the world over
fcir cattle that please the eye; hit unless they
receive tha best care and liberal feeding, they
will most assuredly deteriorate;" and eventual
ly becomes as worthless and unworthy of
propagation as any of the skeleton breeds
that haunt our rich but neglected pastille
lands. We remember an anecdote in
and will relate it by way of illustration.
A farmer having purchased a cow from a
country abounding in the 'richest pasturage,
upon taking her to his own inferior pastures,
found that she fell khort pf the yield which
he was informed she was accustomed to give.
He complained to the gentleman of whom he
had purchased, that the cow was not the one
he bargained for or, in other words, that she
was not what she "was cracked up to be."
"Why," said the seller, "I sold you my
cow, but did not sell you my pasture too."
The above, which we cut from an exchange
reminds us of a reply which a shrewd old
farmer, whom we knew many years ago,
made to one of his neighbors. The latter had
obtained some pigs of a man residing saver
al miles off, and who, because intelligent,
particularly surpassed his neighbors in rais
ing. Shortly atter, meeting the old gentle
man referred to, he says
"Well, Mr. Sweester, Pm going to beat you
raising hogsthis year; 'l've?, got ,some of J.
"A-a-h," bawled out the old man, "you'd
better get the breed of his hog trough!"

It is not sufficient to have a good colt, the
product of a superior mare with a stallion of
good blood and established reputation. This
is necessary, but it is not all that is necessary.
A most promising colt that att tactS univer
sal admiration while it. follows the mare may
be grown into an almost worthless horse.
How then, having a good beginning, shall we
grow a good horse ?—for good horses alone
are" profitable to raise. •By exercising the
greatest care in their management until they
have ceased to be colts. Many almost ruin
a colt the first winter by starvation, by turn
! ing it into the yard to run - with the young
cattle. ' to pick up a scanty .-nourishment, and
that of the cheapest and coarsest food. There
is on the other hand, no one season of its life,
when case and good and fu ll feeding of appro
priate food will tell so much for good as this
same first - winter. ,A friend, who has annu
ally sold two or three of the best horses at the
highest market prices, has often assured us
that in no one time in the life of his colts did
he take so good care of them and feed them
as during the first winter; and that by the ef
fect produced upon them the first year he
could tellvvhat -kind of horses they would be
come. There is sornthing so absurd in seaming
the supply of nourishment to young growing
animals ! Some fancy that such a course will:
-render the animal hardy. The, only effect
produced upon the growing animal by au in
sufficient nutrition, is to hinder its best devel
opment. Wait until it has attained its growth
and then stint it if you choose.—lt can then
be done with less injury.
Colts should be put to exercise and training
at an early age, and may do fight labor to ad
-vantage, but putting ppon four years the la
bor proper only for si;I: or seven years has.
been the ruin of many a promising animal.
There are other suggestions which occur prop
erly in this connection, but we will omit
therri considering the two mentioned . above
the most important.—Granite Farmer.
£ Yourag Man's Character.
No yonng man who has a just sense of his
own value will sport with his own character.
A watchful regard to his character in early
youth will be of inconceivable value to him
in all the remaining years of his life. When
tempted to deviate irom strict propriety of
deportmenti• he should ask himself; Can 1 af
ford this 3 Can f endure herspfter to look
back upon this'?
it is of amazing worth to a young man to
have a pure mind; for this is the foundation
of a pure character. The mind, in order to
be kept pure, must be employed in. topics of
thought which are themselves lovely, chas
tened, and elevating. Thus the mind bath
! in its own power the selection of its themes
of meditation. If youth only knew how dnra-
Ne and how dismal is the injury produced by
! the indtilgence of degraded choughts—if they
only realized how frightful were the moral
depravities which a cherished habit of loose
imagination produces on the soul--they
would shun them as the bite of a serpent.
The power of books to excite the imagination
is a fearful element of moral death wherrem
played in the service of vice.
The cultivation of an amiable, elevated,
and glowinn , heart, alive to all the beauties
of nature and all the sublimitiesi of truth, in
.vigorates the intellect, gives to the will in
dependence of baser passions, and to the af
fections that power of adhesion to whatever
is pure, and good, and grand, which is adapt
ed to lead out the whole nature of man into
those scenes of action and impression by
which its energies may be most appropriate-
ly employed, and by which its high destina
tion may be most effectually reached.
The opportunities . for exciting these facpl 7
ties in benevolent and self-denying efforts for
the welfare of our fellow-men, are 'so many
and great that it really is worth while to live.
The heart which is truly evangelically benev:.
olent, may luxuriate in an age like this. The
promises of God are inexpressibly rich, the
main tendencies of things so manifestly in
accordance with them, the extent of . moral
influence is so greet, ~a nd the effects of its
employment sb visible ; that wboever aspires
after benevolent action and
,reaches' ft - nth for
things that remain for us, to the - true dignity
of his nature; can find free scope for his in
tellect and all-inspiring themes for the heart.
