on your cheek as bright? Doyou enjoy yourself
in society as well? Do you pursue your business

part of the Radicals against the effortsof the
people to wrest from them the lawless power
which they have seized to uphold their base
purposes. . ' -
The Democratic party begins the campaign
under the most auspicious circumstances,
with a 'corohlenee in 4uccess, en enthusiasm
for the cause, and a virrous self reliance
that has not been experienced in many years.
The late elections show conclusively that a
Vast majority of the nation are ready to es
pouse our standard if we only prove faithful
•• creed, and continue to stand firmly by
the interests of the country.
But to • make victory certain something
more is necessary than mere dependence up
on the truth of our principles. In •the Hush
of self-confidence, we are apt to forget what
ilgilant enemy we have to overcome, and
what desperate measures he is apt to resort to
to attain his ends. Political battles, like those
of amore bloody 'nature, depend for their re
sults more on the skill,courage, determination
and energy of die contesting foes than upon the
:-acreditess of their cause,or the convictions of
the patticipats. Thu Democracy of America
have always stood forth as devotedly attached
to the Union, the Constitution and the wel
fare of the country as they do to-day, yet
for seven years they have been divested of
power, and it is only when the peapfe are
aroused from their trelusion by the imperilled
condition of the public interests, that 'they
have again returned to• that cemfidence
which it would have been well' if they had
never parted with..
. •
The all-important necessity of the day, on
the part of our political friends is—work !
WORK ! ! WORK !!! .
We must be thoroughly organiied and pre
pared for the campaign. Every man must
consider that he owes a personal duty in the
matter, as indeed he does, for there is no one
so humble, but he is in some-way more or less
concerned in . the issues of stake. All the
Ustrictsmust be canvassed, so that we may
know where it will be most advantageous to
employ our energies. The young men must
be encouraged to lend a helping hand. Those
who have been led estray mutt be brought
back to the fold, and Democratic argtunents
placed irt,their reach, that they may know
the distinctive questions which divide-par
ties, and no longertbe misled - by the wileiand
falsehoods of the-Opposition.
What we have said before we now reiter
ate, and intend reiterating until we have
waked the Democracy up to a 11111 conscious
ness of its 'truth, that. the, most effective
weapon towards success is Me wide dirtribtz-
Uor4 of sound and plroigldfortconi . loe,d'oein:4-
papers. ,
tine good journal in a fainily wlll do more
towards moulding its political Convictions
than all other intlucnces, and fifty copies cir
culated in any locality for,six months will
accomplish more efficient service than a doz
en costly mass meetings.
The Democratic party has never displayed
that zeal in supporting its press' that it need
ed, and to that cause, as much ns anything'
else, may be attributed its misfortunes during
the last ten years. ' In all' sections of the
country—even in the midst of the strongest
Democratic localities—the Radical press is
more liberally sustained titan ours, and in
many places the contrast is so great as al
most to amount to a disgrace. •
The time has come for these things tcibe
changed, sad , for the Democratic party to
enter upon a new method of warfare. Our
papers ought to be spread broadcast offer the
land, and take the place of those .which are
now defiling the minds of the young and
filling them with wrong ideas of Republican
liberty. Our public men should avail them
selves of ever• opportunity that offers to im
press the importance of these views on the
;mention of the masses. Our local leaders
should make a point of devoting whatever
spare time they can towards strengthening
their county organs by procuring their friends ,
and neighbors' patronage.
The low price of TWO DOLLARS per
year at which the Observer is now offered,
if paid in adrance, ought to ensure the doub
ling of our subscription list - inside of the next
six months. •
But to place it within the reach of all, we
offer to take Rix month solmen'ptionx at ONE
DOLL.III in arir;eiger, with the privilege of
commencing many period desired, and of
Continuing tlfe paper at the same rate for the
balance of the year if desired.
Now is the time to begin the work, before
the spring operations set in, and while voters
have time to read, and reflect over the facts
presented to them. Let it not be delayed
under the iinpressipn that the matter can be
as well attended to by-and-by. More ad
vantageous work can be rendered during the
next two months than can be performed dur
ing the entire.balance of the campaign. A
six months' subscription commencing within
the next two months, will continue until
near the chin of the campaign, and 'myelin
immense'influenee over the mind of the vo
ter who peruses the paper.
We earnestly urge this Important matter
upon our friends as by all odds the most re
liable means of helping the cause.
Let every one of our present .subscribers
see his Democratic neighbor at once, and if
he is not a patron already, induce him to sub
scribe for six months, if he cannot fora

_ ,
Let those who can afford it, send copies to
hesitating voters, who may be influenced to
iupport our candidates at the next election.
Let be established and procure ten,
twenty or fifty copies for free distribution
wherever there is likely to be a vote gained.
Let "this be.the grand preparatory work of
the campaign, and be assured that whenever
other mean* are necessary there will be found
as abundance of ready helpers for every part
We intend that, be the result of the:con
test what it may, no one shall have . the op
portunity to complain that we have failed to
fulfill our complete duty in the cmvass.
Tim Observer for the next year will be
more vigorous and outspoken than in any
previous portion sr its career;. will contain
more reading matter ; and it, shall be our
Constant aim to present-such material as Will
be productive of the most beneficial results.
We only ask for such co-operation as Nit
have a right to expect, and if the Democra
cy of the North-West are impelled by one
halt our zeal and confidence, we promise
such a verdict in this section as will gladden

The Procees of• Impeachment.
The people are deeply Interested at this
time in the manner of proceeding in case of
the impeachment of the President of, the
United States. The subject has been already
much discussed by the press r but we are sur•
prised in our-conversations to - discover what
an amount of ,popular ignorance has been
accumulated in the matter. For instance,
there is a very general impression -among
people who claim to be well informed that
"impeachment" and "conviction" are synony
mous. Therefore we - shall outline the pro
The Constitution Li very brief in its refer
ences to this subject. The . first provision
is in parngraph 5, section 2,, article 1, as fol
lows :*
"The House of Representatives shall choose
their speaker and other officers, and shall
have the sole power of impeachment."
Nest, in paragraphs 6 and 7, of.section
of the same article, we have the, powers of
the Senate therein thus laid down :
"The Senate shall have the sole power to
try all impeachments. When sitting for
thin purpose, theynhall be on oath or affir
mation. When the President of the United
States is tried, the ehlefjustice shall preside ;
'arid no person shall be convicted without the
coneurrence of two-thirds of the members
present. •
"Judgment in cases of impeachment shall
not extend further than to removal from of.
flee, and distthalification to bold and enjoy
any office of honor, trust or profit under the
United States ; but the party convicted shall
nevertheless be liable and subject to indict
ment; trial, judgment and punishment, ac
cording to law."
Paraoaph I, st-etion 4, article 2, provides
"The President V Presidentand all crtil
: officers of the United States, shall be removed
from office on impeachment for, and convic
tion of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes
and misdemeanors."
This is the sum-total of the language of the
Constitution relating to impeachment. It is
not to be expected, of course, that it will be
regarded in the least by Congress,, which-has
been acting entirely' outside of the Constitu
tion, still our readers will be pleased to have
the fundamental law of the matter placed be
fore them. •
The above extracts front the 'Constitution
give the merest skeleton of the process of ha
peaeluent. In regard to the present case,
the records of the• Senate present no parallel,
Indeed, the only ease in which the Senate of
the United States has been called on to ex
ercise its functions as a
.judicial tribunal was
in the case of West H. Humphrey, a judge in
one of the United States Courts in Tennes
see. • This ease was tried during the Thirty
seventh Congress, and- is recognized as the
precedent under - the American law. It is
the general opinion ,of the Most prominent
lawyers of the House that a very similar rule
of procedure'will again be adopted, except
that tile trial of the President,'in accordance
with the Constitution of the United States,
requires the Chief Justice of the Supreme
Court of the United States tee preside. The
following following is the mode of preceeding:
The House of Representatives having
passed the resolution of impeachment, a com
mittee was appointed on the part of the
House who appeared before the bar of the
Senate and announced to that body the fact
that the House of Representatives have
passed a resolution of Impeachment and
would in due time exhibit particular articles
of impeachment. A select committee on the
part of the -Senate was . appointed by the
Chair to,hear the report of the committee of ,
the House upon the subject The commitee
on the part of the Senate then reported- to
that body, and their action was communicat
ed by the Secretary of the Senate to the
House of Representatives. I The. Speaker
then appointed a board of five managers to
conduct the impeachment, designing the,
name of each and the name and office of the
accused. The House then directed the man
agers to carry to the Senate the articles of
impeachment agreed upon and exhibited in
the maintenance of their cause. The action
of the House waa presented and 'read by the
Secretary of the, Senate. A time is then
appointed by resolution of the Senate, "That
the Senate will resolve itself- into a Court of
impeachment," the Chief • Justice presiding.
The oath was , administered. to each Senator
that in all things appertaining to the trial of
the impeachment he will do impartial justice,
according to law.
The Senate now being resolved into a ltigh
Court of Impeachment, the Board of Diana
gets of the House of Representatives were
received, who formally presented the articles
of impeachment in the name of theinselves
and all-the people of the United States. The
Board of Managers of the House were then
introduced to the bar. of the court, and the
Siageant-at-Arms made proclamation : "All -
persons are commanded to keep silence, on
pain, of itnprisontnent e w idle the grand
quest of the nation is exhibiting to the Sen
ate of the United States• articles of-impeach
ment against," &c. Proper order on the sub:
ject of impeachrnent.was taken by the court,
of which due notice was given to the House
of Representatives. The managers of the'
impeachment on the, part of the HoUse then
retired. A summons is then issued to the
party accused to answer' the articles of im
peachment, fixing the day returnable, which
is served by the bergeant-at-Arms, or deputy, '
properly appointed, at least ten days before
the return thereof. The court then adjourns
until the day fixed for the return of the an
swer. Ilium that day the Senateresolves in
to a court of impeachment, and notifies the
House of Representatives of the facts. The
House resolves into a Committee of the
Whole, and with the Chairman, proceeds in
a body to the, Senate chamber, tid is an
nounced at the bar and admitted. Although
the House is. in the exereisa of its highest
judical powers, the form in which it appears
displaces its high functions in the Speaker,
the Sergeant-al-Artns, and the emblem of its
authority, the mace. The Sergeant-at-Arms
of the Senate then hands in the return, which
is read by the Secretary. The Seargeant-at-
Arms or his deputy takes the oath as to the
correctness of the return. Arrangements are
then made for the- summoning of witnesses.
Upon the completion of' the troll the Secre
tary of the Senate reads each article upon
which the roll is called, each Senator an
swered "guilty," or "not guilty." two-thirds,
being required in each case. The decision
being given, the, court orders, and decrees,
and adjourns, without naming a day. The
sentence of the Court of Impeachment, is
then communicated to the• party, and, if
guilty, from the moment of conviction the
functions of the President' depart from the
person of the party so convicted, and the
Vice President ascends to the Chief Magis
tracy of thenation, possessed of all its powers
and prerogatives.
A WEALTITY aristocrat beifig on his death

Female Beauty in Varian?' countries.
The ladies of Arabia stain their fingers and
toes reil, their eyebrows black, - and their lips
blue. In-Persia they paint a black streak
around their eyes, and ornament their faces
with various figures. The Japanese women
gild their teeth, and those of the Indians•
paint them red. The pearl of the tooth
must be dyed black to be beautiful in Guxu
rat. The Hottentot women paint the entire
body in compartments of red and black. In
Greenland the women color their faces with
blue and yellow, and they frequently tattoo
their bodies by saturating threads In soot,
inserting them beneath the skin, and then
drawing theni through. Ilindob families,
when they wish to appear particularly love
ly, smear themselves with a mixture of saf
fron, tumeric and grease. In nearly all the
islands in the Pacific and Indian Oceans, the
women, as well as the men, tattoo a great
variety of figures on the face, the lips, tongue,
and the whole body.- In New Holland, they
cut themselves with shells, and, keeping the
wounds open a long time, form scars in the
flesh, which they deem highly ornamental.
And another singular mutilation is made
among them by taking off, in fancy, the little
finger of the left hand at the second joint.
In ancient Persia, an aquiline nose'svas
often thought worthy of the crown ; but the
Sumatran mother carefully flattens the nose
of her daughter. Among some of the sav
age tribes in Oregon, and also in Sumatra
and Araean, continual pressure is applied to
the skull in order to flatten it, and thus give
it a new beauty. The modern Persians have
a strong evasion to red hair ; Turks, on the
contrary, are warm admirers of it.
. In China, small, round eyes are liked, and
the girls are continually plucking their Cye
brows,.that ther may be, thin arid long. Rut
the great beauty of a Chinese lady is m her
feet, which, in her childhood is so compressed
by bandages, as effectually to prevent any
further increase In sire. The four smaller
toes are bent under the foot, to the sole of
.which they firmly adhere and the poor girl
- not only endures much pain, bdt becomes a
cripple thr life. Another mark of beauty con
sists in finger nails so long that casings and
bamboo are necessary to preserve them from
injury.. An African beauty must have small
eves, thick liPs, large flat nose, and a skin
beautifully black. In New Guinea the nose
is perforated,-and a large piece of wood or
bone inserted. In the northwest coast of
America an incision, more than two inches
in length, is made in the lower lip,-and then
filled with a wodden plug. In Guinea the
lips are pierced with thorns, the heads being
inside the mouth, and the points resting on
the chin.
Twombley!s Mistake.
Mr. Thomas Twombley had drank but six
glossa of brandy and water, when ,being a
man of discretion, he returned home at the
seasonable hour of 1, A. M., and went sober
ly to bed. Mrs. Thomas Twombley was too
well accustomed to the comings and goings
of said Thomas to be much disturbed by the
trifling noise he made on retiring ; but when
she discovered that he had his boots on, she
requested aim to more them or keep his feet
out of the bed.
"My dear," said Mr. Twombley, in an apol
ogetic tone, "skuse me ! How I came to for
get the boots, I can't conceive, for I'm jest as
sober as ever I was in all my life !"
Mr. Twombley sat on the side of the bed,
and made an effort to pull off his right boot.
The• attempt was successful, though it
brought him to the floor. On regaining his
feet, Mr. Twombley-thought he saw the door
open-. As he was sure he shut the door on
coming in, he was astontshed, and dark as it
was in the room, he ,couldn't be mistaken,
he felt certain. Mr. Twombley staggered to
wards the door to shut it; when, to his still
greater surprise, he 'tw a figure approach
trOm beyond. Mr. Twombley stopped ; the
figure stopped. Tombley advanced again,
and the figure did the same. Twomley
raised his right hand, and the figure raised
its left.
"Who's there ?" roared Twombley, begin
ning to be frightened. The object made no
reply. Twombley raised his boot in a men-
Aiming, attitude—the figure defied him by
shaking a similar object.
"By the Lot-!" cried Twombley, "I'll find
out who you are, 3-ou sneaking cuss !" lle
hurled the boot full at the head of his myste
rious object, when—crash! went•the looking
