tr.? On our first page will be found the
eloquent Address of H. IL SwoopE, Esq.,
delivered on the occasion of Mr. Barr's ex
hibition, Though our reading and obser
vation, during twenty years' active service
in the cause of education, have failed to
convince us of the soundness of all the
positions insisted on in the address, and by
theoretical educationists generally, we can,
nevertheless, most cordially commend it as
a whole, and most cheerfully give it a
place in our columns. Our objections re
late merely to some of the causes which are
said to retard the progress of our Common
School System, and, even in our own judg
ment, but slightly mar the truth and ex
cellence of Mr. Swoope'e speech. For,
apart from those objections, it contains a
fund of interesting information which has
been carefully collected from reliable and
popular sources, and which must be pe
rused with profit, as well as pleasure, by
all at least, who are not already familiar
with the subject of which it treats.
'laving made arrangements which enable ns,
without much loss or material inconvenience, to
extend the time of payment, to our delinquent sub
scribert somewhat longer, we this week resume
the sending of "bills" to such as are more than two
years in arrears for subscription to the "Journal."
We make out the accounts as we find them on the
books of James Clark, the former proprietor.—
Should any be entitled to credits which do not
appear on these books, we will, of course, make
site proper correction, so far es evidence of the
iitct shell be furnished us. Our friends will ob
serve that• though the 'ides of November' have
passed ; wo-still charge them but two dollars a year.
We are-entirely satisfied with these rates fur the
present, and we will not demand the additional
half dollar from any one that shall, in a reasona
ble timer satisfactorily answer this, our earnest
call atttl- reasonable expectation. Nay, we feel
authorized to deal even more generously than
this, with those who ; through inadvertence, or
forgetfulums, have allowed their subscriptions to
accumulate fur several years, end who can now
plead inability to pay at otter, and promptly, their
respective liabilities. From such we are willing
toaccept a part now, and the remainder any time
between this and spring, and in such sums as may
suit their circumstances and convenience. Other
inducomeati.we have not in our power to offer.—
Nor will it be necessary, we trust, to urge further
the plain demands st justice turd honorable deal
ing. With this feeling of confidence in the integ
rity and generosity of our hitherto forgetful friends,
we submit the matter to their candor.
The Fun Began,
Those of oar readers, who remember the wail
ings of our political opponents, four years ego,
over the terrible proscription of Gen. Taylor's
administration, when a few, comparatively speak
ing, of the old party hacks were removed, to make
room for better men, would, have supposed that
that party, if it even obtained hiceess again, would
hardly have removed a single Office holder. Time
and success has produced a change.
Four years; and another election, have passed.
Anti now, before the official returns sire all re
estivcd--as soon es the truth of their triumA is
known, they have began their division of the
spoils. In every city and hamlet—in almost ev
ery town,. where,there is a little post office, worth
ss few dollars a- year, you-.e. hear of one, two,
three, four, or half a (biz., of• these patriots, one.
for the post, and each basing his , claim upon 116
services to the party.
We are not astonished at this. It is what they •
live ;for. Iftet •we will take oleasion to say to
them now, you sassy expect our help.• We will
give you, and each of y.; all the aid and corn ,
fort its our power.. If yen- call each other had
names, and we hear of It,-of course we shall agree
with you, for as you know each other better than
we do, we have a good reason-for. not doubting
what you say.
There is nothing here for you, this year, but
the Post Office. 'lle Canal "IC'ehays" have on
ly had one year, and ell you disappointed ones
abused poor "Kitty" Clover so badly that you
need hope for nothing on the Canal for three
years; and we will just kindly hint, that you had
better forgot souse of your abuse of Closer, or it
r i , lodgment against you in thin issue.
Our Defeat.-Why was it?
Last week we gave one of the causes of the
late defeat of the Whig party; a cause outside of
our own party. We shall continue the same sub
ject; and show some of the many others.
We have shown how our opponents organize
and act, and for what purpose they unite their
strength. They must and will enjoy the spoils, is
the first article in their political creed. With this
e•nd in view,—all their preliminary steps having
been taken; they sat themselves to work to see,
where, when, and how to strike.
They were first attracted by the attachments of
the South to their peculiar institution—Slavery.
With an industrious zeal, for years, they have en
deavored to fasten upon the Whig party, connec
tion with Abolitionism; and notwithstanding, in
their own ranks they found the father of the Wil
mot Proviso—and though they loved him as a
brother—they knew, and their partisans in the
South knew, that his education, and habits had
given him such an appetite for the spoils, that
when he was needed, body and soul, or, body or
soul,—both or either, it would only be necessary
to show him the proper "consideration," and he
was a party chattel once more. All this being
understood, he was permitted to act as a decoy
duck, and Ening in the easily seduced. This two
faced scheming, answered a double purpose, it
won some strength from the Whigs, and increas
ed their own. Slavery in the South—Dough-tacos
in the North; and the,diversion of Free Soil were
found all toiling for the same end, the defeat of
The next great interest to secure, was the for
eign vote—the vote of naturalized citizens. Here
was a wide and fertile field for their tillage, some
what dangerous withal, yet with their appliances,
and their object, not hard to win. True, they had
here to secure the services of the originator of
Native Americanism. Only one year had passed
since they had struck from their nominated tick
et, the pet and patron of the "rich brogue" party,
Judge Campbell. but they know that extremes
would and could meet, and why not these also?
Both Judge Campbell and Judge Woodward were
educated in their schools; and the spoils, the only
prize. Of course, they were secured; and the
leader in Native American theory, and the ultra
papist, forgot their hate, in the hunt for office and
its pay. Nor did their cunning trick, to unite
these two extremes, stop here—they secured an•
other ally, whose sympathies had been aroused.
General Scott, while in Mexico, had require of
his army a reasonable respect for the religious
feelings of the Mexicans, and this, with the fact
that one of his daughters, (since dead, we believe)
had been educated at a Nunnery, was sufficient
for thorn to assert, and if necessary, to swear,
Scott was a Catholic; and in an instant the hot
blood of many a higgotted protestant, wheeled in
to the ranks of his opponents,—and while the Na
tives went to the polls whistling "the battle of the
Boyne",—the foreign Catholics, as a body, joined
hands with them, and hummed, quietly, "death
to the llugenot—faggot and flame." The latter
knew that all that was to he fought for was the
spoils, and they did not care who helped win the

red, and that was also composed of two antago
nistic elements. One portion thought the Union
saved, and the other thought the Union severed,

neither of whom, liked. General Scott. It was
important that they should be some how secured,
to have all the opponents of the Whig party mel
ted, in an earnest and harmonious effort, for its
defeat. They succeeded; and like the tatter-de
mullions of Roger Dutton in the fight of the fid
dlers, each sung :
"Roger Dutton's going to fight
In his dublet and his hose, -
Who is wrong and who is right,
No one cares and no oue knows."
Sure of the victory; because sure of the spoils,—

A few days since, a Mr. 'Ammon, of Virginia,

in his possession eight slaves. A writ of Habeas

Speaker of the Senate.

From the Hartford Courant,
Voyage up Salt River
As we have voyaged the whole length
of Salt River, up to the "head of sloop
navigation," we are quite desirous that our
readers should know what kind of a time
we had, and how we aro satisfied with the
We started in the grand old steamer
Connecticut, Capt. Steady-Habits comand
er, with the rest of the large Whig fleet,
on the evening of the tad of. November, on
our cruise up the stream. Ab we entered
the bay into which that famous river dis
charges its waters, there was an universal
expression of grief throughout the whole
fleet. The first ebullition being over, we
had then an opportunity, 'quiet though
sad,' to mark the rapid progress of our
voyage, and the interesting objects before
us. As we passed up the bay, there loom
ed up before us the low sandy point of Cape
Harbor Improvement; we gave its obstruc
tions a wide berth and sighed as we silent
ly bade it adieu for years. The wrecks of
steamers were strewed all along its yellow
sands. Cape Protection then showed us
its headland. The long break-water, erec
ted in 1842 against the dashing waves of
the broad ocean, which rolled its billows
from far England upon it, had been taken
down and washed away; and foolishly, on
the landward side of the point, another
barrier had been built in 1846 which only
checked the current of the inland river.—
As we passed it, it was enveloped in fog,
which had settled in gloomy wreaths on the
sides of Moant american-System that rose
behind it. "Farewell," we said, "old
landmark ! Thou wilt guide our fleet to
victory no more ! Thy whole stupendous
mass is to be carried off and deposited is
the deep oeean•of Free Trade ! Ile who
once stood proudly on thy top to cheer us
on in the contest, sleeps the last long sleep
of death, and his System has perished with
him. It is marked on the tombstone, as

established his country's prosperity, had
Soon after we approached the hidden
rocks of Slavery Extension. Hero a
groat debate sprung up in the different ves
sels of the fleet as to which side of the rooks
we should pass. The contest grew exciting,
when old Capt. Consideration settled the
difficulty by remarking that it made no
difference when we were going np the river.
The old rocky shore of Point National
Rank next presented itself. But the reg
ular action of the current and tide had so
fretted off the projecting rocks, that it was
no longer dangerous. Here we passed the
large democratic fleet, coming down the
bay, with streamers and pennons and flags
flying, with bands of music playing, and
the passengers shouting in the highest glee.
What was rather strange, in all cases the
British flag was flying above the Ameri
can, and the shouts of "hurra for Eng
land's interests" rent the air, while the
bands played "God save the King." The
New-Hampshire, an old-fashioned, slow
sailing craft, led the van, looking as if her
model was a century old. She was the
flag ship, and bore aloft on her mizzen a
flag with the inscription "Virginia Reso
lutions of '98." Franklin Pierce stood
at her prow, smiling as the morning sun,
his eye fixed steadily on the distant view
of the White House. The rest of the fleet
seemed vexed at the little progress which
was made under the 40 98" flag. The
squadron of the West, under the command
of the Rear Admiral Douglas, were evi
dently determined to sail faster, as soon as
the Bay widened. Douglass had showed
his cunning by so constructing his ensign
that the side which turned toward the flag
ship presented the motto of "the Virginia
Resolutions," while the on other was faintly
written—" River and Harbor Improve
ments." He declared to his men that as
soon as there was room enough to pass the
Commodore, he should lead off himself,
haul down the Virginia flag, and up with
the black flag of piracy, with its skull and

the old veteran, "I have troops of friends
around me, who have fallen with me. My
life has been devoted to the Republic, and
I bow to its dicision now. This vote cannot
blot out the record of my services from
my country's history. Posterity will do
me justice. "
As we neared the extremity of the
stream, we passed many beautiful country
residences. At one of the finest, in his
large cabbage garden, stood Martin Van
Buren. He had not recovered from his
grief at seeing the Democratic fleet sail by
without taking him on board.
"The buckwheat cake was in his mouth,
The tear was in his eye."
We inquired for the Prince, and found
that he had followed the fleet in a small
skiff, and there were many fears entertain
ed for his safety.

Cass, wringing his hands in agony at the

him, in the words of the Captive Knight:
"They are gone ! they have all passed by !
They in whose wars I had borne a part,
They that I loved with a brother's heart,
They have left me here to die!

Soon after we came to a pause where
the whole Free-Soil party were disembark
ing. John P. Hale, in a very good natur
ed frame of mind, was making preparations
for a permanent residence, as he had no idea
that four years would carry him down the
stream again. Many of them were seated
on the rocks, with long black poles. str
ing up the mud in the stream, while cer
tain inky looking fellows were calling upon
them to "agitate, agitate !" Most of the
Massachusetts members were sitting in their
boats, expecting that the Democrats would
charter the old steamboat Coalition, and
come up after them next week.
We found our new residence a conveni
ent one, and we are, upon the whole, "as
well as could be expected." The air issa
lubrious and invigorating, if we may judge
by the hnngry looks of the Democrats, as
they passed US. The soil is fruitful, and
produces a fine crop of regrets and unavai
ling resolutions, but we are determined
not to cultivate despair.
Soon after our arrival, a large public
meeting was called, which assembled near
Cape Turnagain. Hon. Stay-at-home
Grumbler was appointed Chairman, and
Job Doo-Little, Esq., Secretary. Hon.
Mr. Facing-both-ways made some lachry
mose remarks, which were promptly hissed
down; when Mr. Stick-to-the-right Groat
heart offered the following resolutions,
which were unanimously passed :

1B" The Stomach prepares the elements of the
bile and the blood; and if it does the work feebly
and imperfectly, liver disease is the certain re
sult. As soon, therefore, as any affection of the
liver is perceived, we may be sure that the diges

be done, is to administer a specific which will act
directly upon the stomach—the mainspring of the
animal machinery. Fur this purpose we ern re
commend HOOFLAND'S German Bitters, prepar
ed by Dr. C. M. Jackson, Philadelphia. Acting
as an alterative and a tonic, it strengthens the
digestion, changes the condition of the blood and
thereby gives regularity to the bowels.
