"Very well, Colonel," says Bucket, "I'm always
willing to test my faith by my works."
Accordingly Bucket took his position at the head
of his command, which was about 500 strong, and
received the fire of 700 of the enemy. He stood it
like a man, only winking a little as the balls came
whizzing past him in showers. But he obeyed hte
orders to the letter; and, having received the 700
bullets of the enemy, he advanced f':;rward, poured
in a deadly fire, and immediately grappled hand to

The question is an interesting one whether crime
and vice generally are actually on the increase in
this country, as most journalists confidently assert,
and as most people actually believe. That with a
rapid increasing population, the number of offen
ces against the law should be greater is not only
probable but certain. But are they in the ratio of
the growth of the population I Are they not rather
multiplied by slow degrees competed with the rapid
accession of inhabitants to the country from births
and immigration? Yet we not unfrequently hear
and read of the great and alarming decrease of pub
lic morality that has taken place within a few years
in this country. The examples of a few murders
among the population of seventeen millions of active,
ambitious, energetic, impetuous people, and the in
stances of breaches of trust and swindling defalca
tions which have grown out of a corrupt banking
system, and confined to persona dealing in monies
and engaged in speculation,—these have given rise
to the opinion that bloodshed and fraud have alarm
ingly increased. But we must not so judge. We
must io ok to the amount of existing good and not
exclusively to the extent of evil, to arrive at a just
conclusion. Is not education beginning to be uni
versally diffused with us? Is not Temperance
spreading with marvellously rapid force? Are not
good feeling, charity, doctrines of peace and religion
extending themselves freely and constantly with us?
Is there not increased independence, too, of word
and action, and a clearer and more definite view of
the spirit ends and aims of republican government ?
But too many Americans seem unconscious of the
superiority of their social forms, their true position
and destiny, and without looking to the good, com
plain of the bad.
Be it remembered that the freer a people are, the
more they complain. In India they are slaves and
there are no complaints. In Russia no popular
chagrin is expressed. Austria is no better. Prusia
has some grumblers, being more free. France yet
more. In England, complaint is considered a birth
right of every loyal subject. In America, the lib
erty of speech is perfect, and the privilege of fault
finding has found vent through innumerable chan
nels. All that is wrong or criminal is blazoned forth
in thousands of newspapers for million. of readers;
nothing that is had published in one part of the
country, escapes record and notice in every other
part, while countless examples of noble, virtuous
and fruitful charities which are eminently the result
of free and enlightened institutions pass unheeded.
They are not out of the way ; they are common,
ordinary, and therefore unnoticed. Our counsel
ler—consider your own country actually and com
petitively, before you take part in this cry of im
morality and retrogradation in tonna feeling arid
pursuit, that is brought against her.—Philadel

The last number of the Miners' Journal contains
an account of a " little circumstance" that recently
transpired at Washington, which is quite too rich
to be lost. It is as follows :
A large number of Mail Contractors assembled
at Washington for the purpose of bidding for con.
tracts. While these contracts were pending, a
meeting of the Contractors was called; for what
purpose, a large portion knew not. Gen. Eaton,
of Troy, was called to the Chair, and the meeting
was organized, when lo and behold, a series of res
olutions were introduced, denouncing Van Buren,
and lauding John Tyler to the skies for his vetoes,
&c. The Van Buren men were all taken a-back ;
their months were sealed—because the contracts
were pending—all seemed to pass off harmoniously,
when the President arose, and addressed the meet
ing to the following effect Gentlemen--I have
been caught—l did not know for what purpose this
meeting was called. I do not approve of the reso
lutions, and I wish to be distinctly understood,

The County Meeting.
The proceedings of the meeting held at the Old
Court House, on Tuesday evening of last week, will
be found on the first page of to-day's paper. It
wan, considering the early state of the campaign, a
demonstration after tl.e fashion of the Tippecanoe
gatherings of 1840. The meeting was large, and
characterized by spirit and enthusiasm. Many of
our old and our young men were there from the dif
ferent townships and boroughs in the county. Our
tarmers, our Manufacturers and our Mechanics—
our laboring business men of every class, were pre
sent, and seemed to glory in the principles cherish
ed and advocated by the Great Whig Party.
Gen. S. M. GREEN, on taking the Chair, addres
sed the meeting in a neat and lucid speech, in which
he stated the object of the meeting, and adverted to
the course of the lower branch of the present Con
gress on the subject of the Tarilt He was listened
to with much attention.
After the meeting was fully organized, JORN
BLANCHARD, Esq., of Bellefonte, rose by request of
the meeting and delivered a most able address, in
which he contrasted the principles of the Whig and
Locofoco parties in this country. When he was
speaking of the Tariff and the inconsistency of the
Locos on that subject, we saw that the interest felt
in it was not confined to the Whig party only—se
veral old and respectable members of the opposition
party, were standing outside of the bar, and listened
to the remarks of the speaker with evident pleasure.
It satisfiof us that rAnTr is no longer first with

Locorocoissr REBUKED In New JERBET.-The
Locofocos in the Legislature, employed the most of
their time during the late session by gerrymandering
the State in such a manner as they conceived would
secure their ascendency; but the People have
thwarted their rascally designs, and so far as heard
from Whig principles are triumphant! Trenton
was divided into four wordage nicely arranged, that
the loco legislators thought there was no doubt but
they would be able to carry three. The honest citi
zens thought different however, and they resolved
on Monday last to teach those reckless Represents
fives, that there is power in the ballot box. The
result is, the Whigs elected their candidates in
three of the Wards and part of their ticket in the
other! Well done Trenton! In Middlesex town
ship, also, the Whigs made a clean sweep—electing
their entire ticket ! Three cheers for New Jersey.

What Industry Cannot Do.
It is often supposed that industry is of chief im
portance in making a great intellectual reputation
for a man. Thin doctrine is very comfortable. It
puts people all on a level, and attributes to each in
dividual the power of raising himself, if he closes,
to any mental height among his fellows. Many a
poor fellow, duly impressed with this idea, sets vig
orously to work to be a Newton, Shakespeare,
Burke, or Byron. Many is the apprentice boy, who
fired with the example of Franklin, tries by reading
and manyfold study, to lay the foundation of a
similar reputation. But after many a fruitless strug
gle; after, perhaps, tears of enthusiasm and tears
of regret, he comes to the conclusion that he needs
the preception, the judgment and the memory, for a
great man. But lo ! here we have the learned
blacksmith! an example of our own day! How
brilliant ! how satisfactory ! And the erudate Vul
can once assured us in a public lecture, that as lie
has done, so all can do; that each man can shape
and build urintellectual material to the moat tow
ering point. Well then, why does not this really
great linguist paint like Raphael, or speculate like
Locke? Why not take up romance where Scott
left it? Because he cannot. He has the talent for
languages, and can learn them readily. Thousands
of adult students, we dare affirm, have applied them
selves with more soul-withering intensity, to the
acquisition of all the forms and hues of a single
foreign language, titan has our scholastic hammerer
to his batch of fifty-two tongues, and have severally
failed to gain their simple and modest point.
The differences in physical constitution, as appa
rent to the eye, are slight compared with those per
taining to the mind. The destruction between a
snub and an aquiline nose; a blind and living eye;
a hunch-back and erect form; between a Hecate
and a Hebe, are trivail, compared with the incalcu
lable odds between a dry, sapless, common-place in
tellect, and the ever rich, impetuously flowing and
rare genius. What folly to deny this marvel of ge
nius, or the more diffused gift of talent. He who
holds the argument, that all men are created
equal" in mind, outrages his creator by failing to
be less than any of the greatest who may be imita
ted. If determination be triumph, let him not only
be a Shakspeare, but a Shakespearein fifty-two lan
guages, and the master of all schools of art. Hu
man perfection in art requires no life time. Genius,
and according to our theorist all have it, jumps at
its conclusions after a few years of study.
Many a clever cobbler has been spoiled in aspira
tions after histrionic fame, and many a worthy
wheelwright has passed his days in the delusion that
perpetual motion was within the grasp of his inven
tive faculties. The time and engergies of like clas
ses have been often devoted perseveringly to the ac
complishment of purposes In themselves impossible,
or which extraordinary intellectual powers alone
could achieve. We think there is no danger of
discouraging genuine ability, or limiting original
effort or production, through the advancement of
this ilootrine. True genius is always conscious of
itself. It requires no external light to reveal its
existence to its own preception. It is a fire which
spontaneausly illuminates its own path. Sir Hum
phrey Davy never essayed a Childe Harold's Pil
grimage, nor did Lord Byron analyze soda and
polasse with the expectation of discovering their
metallic bases. Each felt his own native strength
in his own mental department, and guided by uner
ring instinct, labored with perfect confidence of
We do not mean by all this to repress the spirit
of industry. Heaven forbid! Vt e only wish to
keep it from going astray, and mistaking its means
of usefulness. No amount of puffing and straining
will make a bullock of a bulfrog. Of this fact there
are many around us, who seem to have no knowl
edge. e could name some, almost within a
stone's throw, who have all their lives pursued pol
itics with an idea that their statesmanship would
grace a legislative hall, but who never yet origingted
the fraction of an idea upon government. Others
have added to the dead weight upon publisher's
shelves, under the sweet illusion that a poet's bays
had been destined for their brows. How well were
it for society if the pains taking of these people, had
been duly and solely directed to the ends for which
nature made them competent ! Those who are car
ried away by the theory that industry may supply
the lack of genius commit a double error. They
ultimately disappoint themselves, and deprive socie
ty of their exertions in some useful pursuit to which
their capacity is equal.—Philadelphia Museum.

We have the heart-felt pleasure of proclaiming it
to our friends throughout the Union that the 13th
CONGRESSIONAL DITRICT is , right side up.'
Contrary to the expectations of many of our
friends, we have again elected a Tariff Man to
Congress from this district by an unexpected ma
jority, in spite of every vile artifice used by a des
perate enemy. Within a few weeks preceding the
election, Mr. Snyder suddenly turned from a Free
Trade man to a Tariff man, and even had the
audacity to say that he voted for the present tariff
bill twice—he also wrote several letters stating that
he was in favor of a Tariff, and that he would go
for a higher Tariff than the present one, if only
the people would elect him to Congress—some of
his friends even Went so far as to get a certificate
from a Minister of the Gospel, stating in substance
that he (Snyder) believed the Bible to be true, and
every thing was resorted to by a desperate enemy,
but all would not do. The honest freemen could
not be gulled by n set of designing politicians, but
came out like Freemen—like Americans, to the
rescue of their happy country from misrule and
oppression, by the triumphant election of JAMES
POLLOCK to Congress, by a majority of EIGHT
HUNDRED AND SIXTY-EIGHT votes over
John Snyder. Well may we say that "virtue has
triumphed over vice," and our district saved from
The eyes of the people were anxiously turned to
the result of this election, and its happy and glori
ous result, will, no doubt, have a favorable influ
ence throughout the State. We are pleased to see
the way our friends at a dittance rejoice with us,
inasmuch as the victory was unexpected to them.
So sure were our opponents of success, that in Har
risburg 'every arrangement was made," says the
Harrisburg Intelligenccr, "for agrand jollification
in honor of Snyder's election! Banners and
transparencies were actually in course of prepa
lion, and the Painter had already feasted their eyes
with a deleniatton of the Coon or! his back and the
Chapman Rooster crowing over him in proud ex
ultation!" But in the midst of their expectations,
the news came upon them like a clap of thunder,
that the 13th congressional district had triumphant
