TIIE presence of Ex-President Pierce in
Baltimore last week was a source ot gratifi
cation to the admirers of the distinguished
statesman. The Ex-President has fully' re
covered his health, and eihibits all the vital

so much marked his character:: While in
Baltimore, he was constantly occtipied in the
reception of visitors.
The Coming Great Issue.
fihe attention of the people is becoming
stronglv directed to thh tariff robbery to
which they are subjected. A tax of $200,-
000,000 in gold upon $400,000,000 of import
ed goods will not long.be submitted to. It
is oppressive iu the highest degree—oppres-
Ve not only in the amount but in the man
lier lu which It is levied. Amore shameful
contrivance was never devised to place the
burdens of the Government upon the labor
ing and hardworking classes.
The Wtiy to Win.
Without numbers it is impossible for any
party to suyeed. In a great political, finan
cial Jun:l - commercial crisis, such as is tip:
r proaching, without success a party of cor
rect principles can do nothing to relieve the
country. To secure the co-pperation of all
these elehtents:, the Democratic parfy must
cease to be a clOse corporation. It must
throw wide open its ample 'doors, and invite
the support and co-operation, on equal terms,
of all who agree with us on the living issues
of the day. Let by-genes be bygones. Let
the.dead past bury its dead. We must not
sag to able, eloquent, honest, patriotic and
trusty Republicans, "You may vote for us,
but none but life-long Democrats ate entitled
'to our:support." Any man who has capaci
ty and integrity, who has:shown his patriot
ism in the past, who is right now, and promi
ses to be right" for the future, is, in a crisis
like this, a good enough Democrat fur us.
We would do nothing to compromise the
principles of , the Organization. In fact, it is
I,i secure the triumph of the principles of the
party that weadvlse a broad and liberal poli
cy that shall ignore the 'past, and recognize
all las- Democrats, upon equal footing, who
are willing to co-operate now to save 'the
country from the grasp of its imperialist foes.
Let us learn wisdom from our opponents. It
is because they have not been a close corpor
ation—he Cause they openly and cordially
welcomed all accessions to their ranks, fre
quently giving them the very :highest seats
iu the synagogue—that they have been so
successful. Nearly all the talent and brain
in the Republican party came frota the Dem
ocratic organization. The Radicals had the
sense to use and not to repulseiL Upon the
shoulders of these new accessions that party
was elevated to the power which it has so
vengefully and remorsplesidy exercised. But
for the silly disposition'which prevails among
some Democrats to always fight over the
b ittles Or the past, the Radicals would never
have succeeded, tut'have been always in the
Poor T ennessee !
The Republicans of Tennessee held a State
Convention last week, and broke up in a
4. _ row. The friends of Gov. Senter and the
friends of Col. - Stokes wanted to nominate
each their own man for Governor ; and after
having Made the Conventions scene of in
describable noise and confusion for several
hours, yelling, screeching, and defying the
police, they separated n;ithont having-,ac- 1
eo;nplished anything beyond a riot. The
tight centered on the election of temporary
chairman of the convention.' Rfch faction
claimed that its man was elected, and a fierce
struggle for the Chair. ensued. At thisjunc
tore a leading Radical approached another
and slapped him in the face. Pistols were
drawn when the police interfered and arrest
ed the parties. The convention then ad
journed, amid indescribable—confusion, to
meet the next day. When it reassembled,
the same scenes were re-enacted, and after
much turbulence, the delegates, agreeing to
disagree, dispersed without settling a ticket._
Tfui3 is but the beginning of the end, and we
shall not be surprised to hear of the loyal
saints In Tennessee cutting each other's
throats and hanging one another to the
limbs of trees, in the most l approved John
Brown fashion. They have talked so long
and so much about the. imaginary Ku Klux,
that they find it an absolute necessity to have
. a real institutionof thatsort;and have, there

INDiss.t has lost the pre-eminente it once

The day of miracles is past. Witches and
hobgoblins are but seldom heard of now,

' Nothing has so called forth the witch's
power as the various ailmenbkof tire human
body. For instance, if a person had the
toothache, instead of running to the dentist,
as our modetn - sufferers would do, they
would simply sing ? while sitting in solitude,
"Peter was sitting on a stone ,
And ! Jesus , passed by;
Petersald, 4 My Lord, my God,
HQw my tooth loth ache!"
Jesne stud, " Peter art whole!
And whosoever keeps these words for my

It will plainly be seen that the efficacy of
the ;charm lies neither in the rhyme nor
measure of the verse ; it all depends on the
faith of the sufferer.
Warts, You know, are unhandy things

If you wish to get rid of them, wilt till the
moon is on the increase, and then, standing
alone in its clear light, rub the wart and re
peat the words:
"As the moon increases,
So let my wart decrease."
This do three times, and if the warts do
not go away, it will be from some cause
other than your neglect.
If you have die hiccups, repeat these
words as slowly as.possible, and if the verse
is repeated without giving vent to the hic
cup, the cure is certain :
"Hiccup, hiccup, go away,
Come again another day;
Hiccup, hiccup, when I bake,
ra give to you a butter cake."
The charm consists most probably in the
protnise of the " buttereake,": of which
hiccup is said to be especially fond. How a
drunken man could, manage to repeat the
verse, is hard to conjecture. ''' ,

Young gentlemen should be exceedingly
cautious what manner of present they give
to their lady love. For instance, if any one
should give his girl a knife or pair of scis
sors, it would immediately cut their• friend
ship. This sad calamity might be averted
by the lady sending back these lines :
"If you love me as I love you,
No knife can cut our love in two."
Colors, also, have their significance. -The
omens attached to them are :
Blue Is true,
Yellow Is jealous,
Green Is forsaken,
Red Is brazen,
White is love, and
Black Is death.
Various are the means by which an un
married gentleman• or lady may ascertain
who is to be the future partner of their lives.
One way is by approaching the bed back
ward, and then resting on die hick during
slumber. If you do not dream or horses,
you will certainly see the future sharer of
your joys. Another, is bi . throwing a ball
of yarn out of the up-stairs window, retain-
ing hold of one en•l. As you wind it up, in
quire audibly : •
" Itosband, Imsbfind, come to me;

Or, if a gentleman wishes to try the charm,
he can substitute for the first two words,

Many, very many, are the premonitions of

sign that something will occur.
It seems remarkable that a being of any

The Buckshot War.
Editor Observer:—ln your paper of May
6th, you give a lengthy account of that dis
.eraceful affair called the Buckshot War, of
December, 1838. The writer was at that
time and for several' years a permanent resi
dent of Harrisburg, and probably observed
the facts as closely as any one, acid will give
a few attendant thereto.
The city and county of• Philadelphia Were
separate in their elections. The city bad a
Whig majority for several years. The coun
ty was Democratic.
Francis G. Harper was elected in October,
1834, and re-elected lin 1830, to Congress as o
Democrat. He died*-March 18, before the ex
piration of his term. A. special election was
held to till the vacancy. Chas. G. - Ingersoll,
an ambitious, hut unpopular man, was the
Democratic candidate, E.nd was defeated by
Charles Naylor (a nail maker by traddby a
large majority. Mr. Naylor made an excel
lent member of Congress. In Ins he was a
candidate for re-election by the Whiz party.
The Democratic party again placed - Chas. G.
Ingersoll on their ticket. The night of the
erection he found himself again defeated by
Mr. Naylor, but the Democratic Senators all
elected. He then discovered there had been
illegal voting in two districts:and those elec
tions must and should be rejected. By &Ting
so, he would be elected, but the balance of
the Democratic ticket would be defeatthl. A
majority of the return judges on Friday af
ter election met, rejected those two districts
and signed the returns electing Mr. Ingersoll
and the Whig members of the State Legisla
ture, and forwarded said returns to the Sec
retary of State according to law. The minor
ity return judges two days afterwards made
a return and forwarded it also, which the
Secretary, refused to place on record, it not
having been forwarded at the proper time.
Very few, if any, doubted that the Demo
cratic Senators and. members of the House
had a majority of the votes cast, and that
Mr. Ingersoll had not, but that did not snit
him. The Whig members of the Legislature,
headed by Michael Day, of Kensington, did
not legally consider themselves elected.
Your account of the organization of the
House is strictly correct.. The two Ahti-
Masonic members from Luzerne county,
Chester Butler and B? - 11.. Sturdivant; and Mr.
Gutelius, of Union Co., got ashamed of the
proceedingsment over to the Democratic side,
and helped to organize the Hopkins branch
of the House. A committee was then ap
pointed on the contested election, the ballot
boxes were brought and examined, and the
Democratic members awarded their seats.
Thaddeus Stevens, then a member from
Adams county, would not recognize the or
ganization as a legal body, and refused to be
sworn, or take his seat. 'A committee was
appointed and requested him to confirm to
the rules of the House or be expelled. He
declined; was expelled, and an order issued
for a special election in Adams county to fill
the vacancy. He went home, and was re
elected by 000 majority, came to Harrisburg,
was sworn in, took his seat, and was a useful
