larThe Democratie'organs are predicting
with great unanimity, that if Cohgress does
not give way to the President and concede to
him the functions of the Executive,Legislative
and Judicial power, there will be civil war.
In the same spirit the slaveholders constantly
asserted, while they were preparing for the per
petration of the crime, that if Congress did not
accord to slavery more than constitutional
rights, there would be a rebellion. That re
bellion did take place and it was crushed.—
Now let us ask whether the Democracy,while
they are claiming more than constitutional
power for the President, are, like the slave
holders, preparing for rebellion? if they are,
like the sisveholders, the Democracy will be
crushed. That's all.
I How Mtnnons ARE Mxos.—Probably few of
our readers have a very clear idea how the
huge mirrors that are so fashionable and ex
penSive nre made. The plate-glass which
conies from France or German is first polished
by means of rouge' brushes; next a bag con
taining the common potato, reduced by a pul
zerizing process to nu almost impalpable pow
der is applied to the glass, the potato dust
e'staping the meshes of the bag; then a plate
fotf is spread upon a setting bed of marble,
and on it is placed tue prepared quicksilver ;
the, glass is then laid pn the top of this and
pressed down with heavy weights. Here it
remains about twenty-four hours, when it is
examined, and if found free from flaws, is
ready for -use.
I '
Fidoenss Movrinten.—There seems to be
no end to "plagues!' A letter from Genoa
announces that the birds are dying off by 1
thousands, owing to miasmakic vapors 111 the
atmosphere. They fall exhausted, and it is
found that the roots of their feathers are de
cayed.. An epidemic in the oyster beds of the
coast of France has raised the price of these
bivalves mere than a third, and late news
from England gives reason to fear that the
sheep have been attacked with s similar mal
ady to that which has destroyed cattle. More
than a hundred thousand head of cattle were
bought in France' last week for exportation
to. England, and there is every reason to an
ticipate a very great rise in the price of
butcher's meat. Since the fright about
trichime, the charculiers (the pork butchers)
Ido not sell half their usual quantity of swine
flesh. The government has done, and is doing,
all in its power to keep down the panic, but
cannot succeed. Pork is decidedly )at a
State Currency.
It seems very probable that before long the
notes of the State Banks will go out of circu
lation. The act of Congress of March 3d,
directs that they shall be taxed ten per cent,
if in circulation after the first of July next.
It is therefore necessary that they should be
redeemed before that time, and the National
Banks, which must suffer the tax if they hold
the notes at the date mentioned, are relieving
themselves of their liability by throwing out
the State Bank notes, or by' receiving them
at a small discount sufficient to pay for the
cost of sending them home for redemption.
This action will soon, hurry them out of sight,
and there will be no currency in circulation
but greenbacks and the notes of the National
Banks. '1
