The two Faces of Democracy.
Just dow, throughout Iennsylvania,thc
leading professed Democratic papers are
j.iniiig the Hepublicans in demanding the
c.-tablishmeut of the old Whig priticiple-
a Protective Tariff sufficient for the wants
of an economical government. This is
Democracy "national" Democracy in
Pennsylvania.. The only Democratic
piper we exchange with, in New Yoitiv
fc'TATE, is the Cum in j D- ni'jcrnl. That
paper, of Jan. 19, ISiD, has the following
c iiumcnceineut of the leaJiugurtic'c under
the Editorial head :

"The theory of our RiH-eruiiient
opnied to llie whole system of a

'I'arirt, white the Lnlish sovernment is found

foundation on which we must stand as a na
tion. U is the verv essence of our government.
A Protective tari.T creates privileged classes,
at the expense of others, ll creates an order
or class of nobilitv."
So, you see, j'ist cross tho lino of the
Ftatc, and the Tariff is denounced by the
Democrats as Kriti-b, Federal, aud every
thing bad not a bit of Americanism or
of Democracy about it ! A "national"

The way to work this question well.

With suowy flakes on meadows sere,
Many a fattened bullock dies.

The head we always keep for pies,
The hide's of course lhe tanner's share
And inany-a roast bolh rich and rare,
Has a hearty welcome at the table,
From which an epicure could make,
Of juicy ribs, or sirloin steak,
A sterling meal if he were able ;
The tallow goes, of course, to light.
And show the farmer what to write.
There's little left ihe hoots, in fine,
