The Oratcr and the Newspaper.
ST WILLIAM WALLACZ
Compere the Orator, one of the noblest vehicles
for the diffusion of thought, with the Newspaper,
and we may gain a faint glimpse of the übiquitous
power of the latter. The Orator speaks to a few
hundreds; the Newspaper addressee millions
The words of the Orator may dte on the air; the
language of the Netwspeper is stamped on tablets
imperishable es °made. The arguments of the
Orator may follow each other so rapidly that the
majority of the audience may struggle in a net of
ratiocination; the reasonings of the Newspaper
may be scanned at leisure without a fear of per
plexity. The passion of the Orator inflame, an
assembly ; the feeling of :he Newspaper electrifies
a continent. The OrMor Is for en edifice; the
Newspaper fcr a World ; the cue shines for an hour;
the other glee's for all time. The Orator may be
compared• to thO lightning, which flaehes over a
valley a moment, but to leave it in darkness; the
Newspaper to a Sim, blazing Moodily over a whole
earth, and ' , lard on the baeis of its own eternity."
Printing hes been happily defined ~ .the Art which
preserves ell Arts." Printing makes the Orator
himself more than an Orator. It catches up his
dying words and breathes into them the breath of
life. It is the epeaking-gellery through which the
Orator thunders in the ear of nen. Ileleens frog
the torah over the cradle of rising generationa.--
Nor does the Art confine itself to the pasturage of

Correspondence of td i e Rochester Democrat,
AUBIYIIN, Jan. 264 1846,
There is conaiderable excitement in town to-day,
occasioned by the death of one of the convicts, who,
it is said, ivas whipped to death by one of the keep.
era. There are a good many atoriea afloat, and it
is a hard matter to get the right one. According to
the best information I con obtain, the convict was
whipped both Tuesday and 'Wednesday ; receiving
Tuesday 46, and Wednesday 24 blows with the
cat e'en' tails—making 420 lashes. After the
Whipping the prisoner was taken to the Hospital,
and there died on Saturday night. I have not seen
him, but persons who have, say there is nothing
but raw flesh to be seen from the neck down to his
limbs. . .
The convict wan punished, as they say, for pre
tending to he crazy.
A warrant was iesued far the keeper this after
noon, but he was not found this•evening.
P. B.—The verdict of the Coroner's jury, as
rendered late last evening, was, that Plumb come
to hut death ty a billow, fever, aggravated, if not
superinduced, by the severe flagelation which he
received from Melancthon W. Cary.
Amongst other things, it was proved by the tes
timony of the officers of the prison, when them
selves placed upon the stand, that the pretended
record which is kept in the "prison book," of the
number of lashes inflicted, is a mere farce—that
where such record names 30 lashes as having been
given, over 50 lashes were inflicted—and where 12
wore thus named, over 25 , were inflicted ; each lath
it should be borne in mind, being given with a whip

Regard for the Sabbath.
There is sointhing very cheertng in the evident
progress of a public sentiment in favor of • better
observance of the Lord's day. With scarcely an
exception, the whole press of the country,
and secular. encourage. the movement, and lend.
it en efficient aid. Many of the public .convey
emcee, as well es forwarder,' end laborer. upon the
canal, perceiving the identity of duty and interest.
in this case, ere among the warmest advocate. of
tiabbeth observence. We heartily trust that these
efforts on the part of the pulpit, the pre., eqcieties,
and individuals, will continue to urge tho consider
ations which bear upon the subject, till there shall
he a sentiment in its favor strong enough, and gen
eral enough, to secure universal obedience to the
great duty.--Aa a epecimen of the work which the
eeculer press is doing in this , behalf, e. well as for
the truth it contains, we copy the following from
the Philade tie North American. .
"Many of our citizens are uniting in,the effort to
secure more general observance the of Sabbath. The
movement does credit to the community. It is
most important in every high light in which it is
considered—to the good of men, for it upholds an
ordinance of the Most High—to the friends of law
and order, fog to the desecration of the Sabbath, we
trace the largest number and the worst offences the
disturb the public peace—to thu advocate of tern ,
perance, fcr Sunday is the Saturnalia of the ine
briate; to the benevolent, for the Sabbath is the
poor man's only doy of rest; to the sordid money
maker, for it is demonstrated that more labor can
he done with than without Clod's and the seventh
day of renovation, to the edvecate cf man's intel
lectual improvement, for one day in seven devoted
to truth will make the humbler; wire; to the reli
gious and irreligion., to all reasonable men, even to
the sordid and selfish, it is profitable that the Sab
bath should be observed. To the nation it is im
portant. The traveller, whithersoever he may
bend his steps, will find the people who observe
the Sabbath, though their sky may be
their soil sterile, free, prosperous end happy; while
those who desecrate it are servile, ignorant, impov
erished, profligate end wretched. It is therefore,
no question for sects—it belongs le people. No
desecration of the Sabbath, wUther by govern.
mead, corporations, or individuals, is necessary,
and none is profitable. Let the subject be kept
before the people, and the champions of the Sab
bath will win a triumph which will, for ages, pre
serve from wrinkles the fair brow of the republic."

members of Congress to catch the eye of the

themselves of the burden that beam them down—
is admirably hit off in the following sketch :
No tiger ever looked more intently on his prey,
when about to make the fatal leap, than do some
fifteen or twenty members watch the eye of the
Chairman at the close of n speech, peradventure
they may be so happy as to be recognized by , him
as having obtained the floor. A toast laughable
incident occurred yesterday. Mt. Cobb had the
floor, and, by the way, made a very sensible speech.
Seventeen individuals, (brators, , lnen i buckram,")
crowded around him, as the place of all other
