al places of holding delegate meetings, on Satur

o'clock, P. M., for the purpose of nominating a
county ticket and doing such other business as
the interest of the party may require.
July 13th, 1859.
Poor old Mr. Cass ! What a grand mistake
he made in his decision in regard to our eats•
relined fellow citizens. It appears that the ad•
ministration at Washington has ingloriously
receded from the position it had assumed in the
Cass-Le-Clerc letter. As the Pittsburgh Ga•
sette truthfully remarks, the public sentiment
of the country was too much for the President
and his Cabinet, and hence the recent "decis
ion." But conviction has come too late to do
them any good, as they have shown clearly
what they would have done but for the storm
which was raised, through the instrumentality
and existence of the Republican press. Their
eleventh hour conversion will gain for them
neither the respect ncr the confidence of that
class of citizens who were most seriously affec
ted by the position assumed at the outset. In
the Le Clerc letter the President faithfully ex
pressed his old federal aristocratic views, but
the last movement, which the Globe editor calls
"the third and last 'explanation'" rs nothing
less than deference to an outraged public sen
timent, with which, in reality, he has no gym

of his hobby--by the President and h is Cabi

the great Michigander will commit no such fol

emoluments of his office. The hero of the
broken sword has a constitutional aversion to
giving up any office that pays, be it great or

A Voice for Poor Old Buck !
The Pittsburg Post, with a daring worthy of
a better cause, boldly comes out in its last
weekly issue, in a two column leader in favor
of James Buchanan for a renomination to the
Presidency I We did not think there was au
individual in Pennsylvania, possessing any
political character, who would be so far lost to
rectitude and honor us dare name this renegade
and breaker of solemn pledges for a ro•nomi
nation to the station he has so eminently din
graced; and a paper of the character of the
Post, to use such language as the following, is,
to say the best for it, disgraceful
"Let the Convention renominate our pres
ent Chief Magistrate, and in 1860 the oppo•
Cents of the National Democracy will suffer a
defeat as disastrous to them as the battle of
Sofferino to the Austrians. Under such a
banner, and with such a leader, the Demoera•
cy of the country will come up like an allied
arniy—no corps of which would be required to
yield submission to another—all contending for
a common cause, and all equally sharing in the
inevitable victory which such a cause must in
cure. We speak thus iu favor of Mr. Buchan
an because we think he is the man for the pres.
ent crisis in the political affairs of the party
and of the country."
We should ask nothing better at the hands
of the Charleston Convention, than a fulfill
ment of this desire. Such a defeat as be would
receive, we think would assure the Post, to
quote its own language a little improvci, that
the people are not so easily humbugged, and
that the "deep damnation" of public obloquy
and contempt has settled down, like a cloud of
darkness, upon him, who, in his "vaulting am
bition " has "o'er•reached himself, and fallen
on the other side" of the people's respect,
Beautiful Financieting.
It is stated in the New York paper; that a
railroad, leading from Hollidaysburg, Pa., to
the Sunbury and Erie road, has lately suffered
a lost of $lBO,OOO in its bonds, by falling into
bad hands in New York city. The bibline
says the parties interested in this road and in
the Hollidaysburg Bank are the same, and the
Central bunk became embarrassed by the ex
tension of itsaid to the road. In order to re
lieve it, the officers of the road went to Now
York to endeavor to negotiate some of its
bonds. They fell into the hands of men much
shrewder than themselves, and parted with
$lBO,OOO of the bonds for $200,000 of the
notes of the Southern Bank of Georgia, a con
cern which has bad a black mark against it for
some time in the respectable Bank Note Re
porters. After discovering that the notes were
worthless the road officers endeavored to regain
their bonds, but have not yet been able to dis- I
over their whereabouts.
When, in the history of our country, have we
felt a greater depression of business, of the
manufacturing interests, especially, than at
present and for the past few years? As a nat
ural consequence of this state of business stag
nation, manual labor is begging employment,
and industrious citizens are reduced to want.
Notwithstanding that thousands of our citizens
bare migtated to the Nast, and to the Pacific
States, yet there is not employment for those
who remain. We make this statement with
sincere regret, but without the least surprise.
The bitter fruits of the system of protection to
foreign in preference to home labor, which has
been forced upon the country by the Locofoco
party, are being realized. Our mines, our for.
ges; and our factories all feel the blight ; and
the agricultural portion of our community are
sharing largely in the general wreck and crush
of all other business pursuits. Why should
this continue—as continue it will under the ad
ministration of Locofoco demagogues 1 Is the
labor of our own people to be forever crushed,
our home market disregarded, and our country
placed in a condition of industrial vassalage to
its former oppressor, because, forsooth, it is the
policy cf Locofocoism. For, the policy of that
party, instead of leading to the development
of our natural resources and the progress of
the agricultural and manufacturing interests of
the country, is calculated to freeze all the cur
rents of our prosperity, and to check, discour
age and degrade our people. It is high titne,
therefore, that the working-men of this land
should open their eyes. It is getting to be
clearer every day, that they must either forsake
the doctrine which reduces them to the posi
tion of "ten cent day" serfs, or consent to see
starvation stare their families in the face, and
hear their "little ones" cry for that bread
which they are unable to provide. Great Brit•
ain has been truthfully styled the workshop of
America ; a workship which is favored with
the patronage of the men whom many of the
working-men ofA merle& aid in placing in power.
The money that should stay here to keep our
people employed, is sent to England to enrich
British manufacturers and tradesmen. In short
the policy of the day is to import British goods
and export American gold.
This evil must bo arrested ore the dawn of
prosperity shall again break upon our moun
tain tops, and there is but one way to do it.
Renounce the false doctrine of Locofoco free
trade and the other anti-republican dogmas of
the corrupt organization which disgraces the
name of "Democracy," and enroll yourselves
under that glorious banner upon which is in
scribed, Protection to Home Industry—Pro
hibition to the Extension of Human Slavery—
and all the other cardinal principles and meas
ures of the faith which we profess. Leave the
party which is arrayed against Home Labor—
which has winked and connived at the eaten
sion of human bondage—and which is, in fact,
the advocate and supporter of a system of gov-
arnmetimit poll, whit& vwnahl bring the labor '
of American freemen on a level with that of
the poops. labor of Europa. tt moat come to

man of the County Committery, that a alight
correction is mode therein, in this number, in
relation to the hours of holding the delegate
meetings. The last Convention, in view of
the difficulties which often occur in such bodies
occasioned by contested seats, in order to do
away with this suggested that the hours of hold
ing such meetings, should be as follows: In
the townships, commencing at 4 o'clock, p, m.
and closing at 7; in tho boroughs, commencing
at 7} o'clock, and closing at 9 o'clock, p. m.—
In issuing the call this year, the Chairman
neglected stating this fact, and has since au
thorized us to make the necessary correction.
This will prevent any disturbance or difficulty
relative to the illegal election of delegates.

Chief Justice Taney, the hoary-headed smart
old gentleman who says that human beings aro
" chattles," when covered with a black skin, has
decided that a slave, though "subject to the
some laws as other property," can yet commit
felony, and declines, accordingly, to reverse
the sentence against the slave girl Amy, for
robbing the United States mail in Virginia.

lose nothing, if we are correctly informed, and
should therefore not sacrifice any of their

pondent of The Cincinnati Contntercial writes
from Jefferson County, Texas;
' . This is not a county seat, but it is nom.
nary to have some place of confinement for
criminals; and as a substitute for a jail, the
people have provided a large stone, weighing
over three tone, placed in the public square,
with a large iron ring and long iron chain fast
ened to it, and when a poor fellow commits a
crime, and the sentence is imprisonment, be is
fastened to this chain by the ankle, and there
remains night and day; but if his crime be
light, and ho had previously borne a good

him to carry an umbrella to protect him from

The Wounded at Solferino.
I am afraid to venture upon any conjecture
as to the.number of the killed and wounded in
this battle; but from the nature of the ease it
must be enormous. lam confident that not
less than 10,000 wounded have been brought
into this village alone during the day, to say
nothing of those that were loft on the field or
taken to other places. It was certainly the
moat dreadful sight I ever saw. Every con.
ceivable kind of wound which can be in
flitted upon men was here exhibited. All who
were able to do so, were obliged to walk, the
wagons and animals at command being rill

on their heads. Many had their arms shut.
tered, hundreds had,their hands tied up, and
some carried most ghastly wounds upon their
faces. Some had tied up their wounds, and
ethers had sf ripped away the clothing which
chafed and made them worse. I saw one man
walking along with a firm step and a resolute
air, naked to his waist, nod having a bullet
wound upon his side, an ugly gash upon his
cheek and a deep bayonet thrust, received from
behind, in his shoulder. Most of those who
were welking wore a serious look, conversing
but little with one another, though they walked
two and two, and few of them carried upon
their faces any considerable expression of

carried in that way were so badly wounded that
their recovery is scarcely possible. One had
both his legs crushed by a cannonball. Anoth

the crowd by the side of them as the sad pro.

point for over an hour. It was not interrupted
fora moment—except now and then by a crowd
of prisoners—and it continued thus from about
10 o'cljck, A. hi., when it began to flow, until
I left the street, long afterdark. Every church,
every large hall, every private holm in town
has been taken for the service of the wounded.
Those whose injuries are slight, after having
them dressed, pass at once into the ranks and
mingle with their comrades. I looked into the
church as I passed by. All the seats,

more horrible than a soldier's life, it certainly
is a soldier's death.
Six or eight times while I stood upon the
sfreet watching the wounded, there came along
squads of prisoners taken at various stages of
the action. Sometimes there would be only 3
or 4—then 20, 50 or 100, and in ono company
over 400. They walked closely together, 6 or
8 deep—the officers being generally in the mid•
dle—and were guarded by a single file of troops
walking on each side. As a general thing
they were not bad looking titer. Very many
of them were very young—not over 16 cer•
tainly—and only now and then you would see
a ',oracularly brutal countenance. There was
nothing like anger or shame on their faces ;
they seemed generally wholly indifferent to
their position, but looked about with a good

Epilepsy, or Falling Fits.
We believe we cannot do our readers a more
important service, than by again calling their
attention to that most remarkable preparation,
discovered by Dr. Sells S. Hance, of Baltimore
Md., which possesses the power of alleviating
and curing that horrid visitation of man—Ep.
ilepsy, or Falling Fits. In recommending this
preparation to our readers, we do so with a con
viction that we are not degrading our columns
to pull' a common patent medicine, but are
placing before them a discovery, which, if ful
ly known, would probably do more to alleviate
human sukring, than any invention of modern
times. Dr. Hance, in asking us to notice his
preparation favorably in our editorial depart
meet, has seat us for perusal a number of let.
tern from persons who have used his Pills, and
have been cured thereby. All of them speak
the most grateful and eulogistic terms.—
One great advantage this medicine possesses
is the fact, that it can be transported through
the mails, thereby affording every one an op.
portnnity of dealing directly with the inventor,
and also precluding all possibility of being
imposed on by a counterfeit or spurious imita
tion. Dr. Hance pays the postage on all his
Pills to any part of the country, and will for
ward them by return of mail, ou the receipt of
a remittance. His prices are as follows One
box, $2; two do., $5; twelve d0.,524. All or
ders fur the medicine should b addressed to

A Perfect Snbstlttite
For the Lancet. Leeches and Blisters HS
- - -
when the undersigned, after a long series of
laborious and costly experiments, became fully
confirmed in his conviction, that the A ntiphlo
guile Salt which he now has the happiness to
present to the American public, was a
. .
for Blood-letting, Leeches and Blisters, his
mind wns so agitated that ho could not sleep fur
ninny nights. Tim cause of Lis agitation was
the striking fact, that the mannet of itr operation
like that of the viruss in vaccination, could nut
be satisfitctorialy explained upon any known
principle. Dow, in what way, it so effectually
subdued Inflananatorg Disease and no others,
ions at first wholly inexplicable—but, on further
experiment, it was provad that a eTtalizes the
fluids of the body, the want of an etpulibrinm in
which, is the sole rause of inflammation. Such
is its potency, that like the vaccine matter, :it
requires merely mat adheres to the point of a quill
dipped into a solution of it, to effect the entire
system—but must be instantly used to prevent
decompos'Lion and secure its full virtue. Throe
quills in acute, and two in chronic diseases,
every 24 hours, till the heat, pain and febrile ac
tion have subsided, and a perfect cure effected.
When it takes the place of blisters, ointment
and leeches in local affections, as Brain Fever ,
Croup, Toothache, Pleurisy, &c., its med. ref
administration is two-fold. (See direcliin of dis
solving. he.)
The discoverer has withheld it from the pub
lic till now, by the advice of it judicious physi
cian and valuable friend whom he consulted—
a gentleman known and felt in the medical
world—and who desired to submit it to the test
ofexperiment. After witnessing under his own
scrutinizing eye, its signal triumph over both
acute and chronic itykoninutory diseases ' in re
pealed and re-repeated trials, he offered $21.-
000 to come in as a special and equal partner in
the Recipe fur its manufacture, but the propo
sal was rejected.
Tho disuse of the insect and blisters, is de
manded both by humanity by Itumonity and
science. Is it not a mistake, to suppose that
a kettle of boiling water (the inflamed blood)
will cease to boil, by dipping out a part of it—
or n cask of bad cider (bad blood) be mado
good, by drawing a portion of it? Is it not a
mistake, to suppose that blisters:and rubefacients
will remove inflammation, when they virtually
superadd one inflammation to another The
late Dr. B. Waterhouse, of Harvard Universi
ty, said "I am sick of learned quackery„ Onb
of the most eminent physicians In New England
acknowledged just before his death, that "he
has been doubting for ninny years, wether Hood
letting and blisters did not aggravate rather
than arrest disease." Some who stand
high in the Old and New school, have quite re
cently espousnd his views and now openly con
fess, they believe the Inn.:et, scions leeches and
blisters injure ten where they benefit one—
They think there is a meaning to Dent. 12, 23
--Gen. 9, 4—andLevit. 17, 14—tnat "rile
nt.oon is Tan Lt.." It is not the excess of
blood (there never is too much) that causes di
sease, but the want of a balance between the
fluids and solids.
The special excellence of the Antiplilogistie
Salt, is that without the useless loss of blood
discus,, strenh( n , it effectually o ehers

of all the fluids in the body and a conse
quent uninterrnptcd circulation. Is exert., like
the vaccine matter, and extraordinary influence
over the v;ens and arieries—resulting in a grad
ual decline of inflammation as indicated by the
pulse, which assumes its natural state as the
boat, pain ant fever dissappear.
ger Many medicines offered for sale, are
backed by doubtful certificates, (their cheif vir
tue) and claim to be universal rmidies, curing
all Ina lidies—ft burlesque on common sense;
As the discoverer of this Salt, solemnly pretense
against having it placed in the entegcry of
im hag rev...Noe{ that it
shall go forth to the world, like the pare gold
dollar, with no otherpassport than its true val
ue. if tha public find it genuine, they will re
ceive it—if spurious, they will reject and con
demn it. Instead of being n panacea ler all ills,
it has control over but one but one sine
—accomplishes but ant thing, to wit, summits
tsrLafsm,ron, DlSEMSE—whatever he ire form
or locality—wethee in the head, throat chest ab.

it tines this?--simply by restoring the lasi bal
