have it rest iu the cerements of the grave
until the things of this world shall be no

summon the sleepers to arise. The

REMARKABLE INSTANCE on HEROISM.
—The Rev. Mr. Sadder, of India, in a letter
to the Christian Intelligencer, gives the
following instance of heroism, called forth
by the Indian mutinies.
Let Americans never be ashamed that
Englishmen are their forefathers. England
is a noble country. Her sons arc heroes,
and her daughters are heroines. This rc
he'.lion has brought out deeds that deserve
to be associated with those valorous actions
which we, with throbbiug pulses, read iu
history. In one place a lady and her hus
band fled in their carriage. 110 stood up
right. She took the reins. She lashed the
horse through a bar.d of mutineers, wh le he,
with cool aim, shot dead one who seized the
horse's head, and another who climbed up
on the carriage behind to eutiiim down.—
On they fled, till again they found them
selves among foes, and a rope stretched
across the road made further progress seeni
impossible. True to herself, she dashed the
horse at full speed against the rope, and a.,
tbey bearing it down stumbled, she by rein
and whip, raised them, while her husband's
weapon again freed them from those who
succeeded in leaping upon them. He was
wounded, but both escaped with their lives,
in another place a young lady, the daugh
ter of an officer, shot seventeen mutineers
before they killed her. A captain, pressed
by his Sepoys, with his good sword slew
twenty-six of them before he fell 1

-REVIVAL OF THE WHIG PARTY
AND ITS ISSUES,
Iu introducing to our readers the sub
joined communication from an old subscri
ber in one of the fur Southern States, we
may take occasion to say that if the politi
cal and financial lessons which we have
sought to educe and enforce from the mone
tary evils under which the whole eountry is
uow suffering had elicited no other appro
ving voice than that of the intelligent gen
tleman to whom wo ate indebted for this
favor, we should have been more than re
paid for the labor which their iuculcation
has ci st us.
Our readers will bear us witness that, in
summing up the results of the past finan
cial experiences ot the country, and in
pointing out the uses and advantages of a
national Rank to give uniformity and stabil
ty to our currency, we have not assumed to
ourselves the high prerogative of formally
proposing the adoption of ihat measure by
the Federal Legislature. Satisfied as we
are of its constitutionality and policy, we
have yet, in the course of our long experi
ence and observation, learned too much of
tho power, we may say the despotism, ot
party prejudice and party catch-words, in a
country like ours, to cherish the sanguine
' ope that the proved beneficence of any
proposition in politics will afford a guaran
tee of its acceptance when submitted to the
popular ratification, not for trial upon its
merits, but for its conformity to some po
litical confession of faith.
In all that wo have said, therefore, under
this head, vre have sought rather to address
ourselves to the candot and intelligence of
our countrymen, without reference to parti*
-an divisions at the present tiuie or parti
san aspirations for the future. Doubtless
it cannot be considered otherwise than un
fortunate that questions of pure finance and
of t u'olic economy should be made the mo
tive or occasion of political dissensions, de
manding as they do tor their wise adjudi
cation and settlement the calmest consider
ation, with reference not to the t xigr ncic?
cf party, but to the interests and wants of
the whole country. None, however, save
those who love "agitation for agitation's
sake," wi'il venture to deny that financial
and economical issues are much more desi
rable elements for political organization
than those which of late years have entered
into the constitution of our leading parties,
and which have given a sectional complex
eon to nearly the whole aspect, of our domes
tic politics. With the inevitable and imrni
cent decline of thsso latter wo might
naturaliy expect The emergence of those
which have been so long overlaid by them,
but which,•founded as tliey aic upon tiro
permanent interests of the Republic, cannot
fail to re-assert their vitality at every seas

brought to consider its situation in connex
ion with the political agencies to whose pres
ence or absence that situation may bero
In another part of to-day's Intelligencer
the reader will .find a few extracts from the
contemporary press, in which the probable
evolution of new issues, and of new politi
cal confederations based upon them, is con
sidered as among the signs of the time thro*
which we arc now passing. To the same
purport is the following communication,
which it was our sole purpose to commend
to the attention of our readers iu inditing
these preliminary observations, and of which
wc have only to say that it presents, in
compact adjustment, and logical arrange
ment, a "platform" of principles whose
truth and policy will bo as enduring as the
Republic Jbcy seek to conserve and adorn.
SELMA, Oct. 30, 1857.
To the Editors oj the JYal. Intelligencer.
An old subscriber to your paper fully
agrees with yon in your opinions on the ex
pediency and necessity of a Bank of tho
United States, and is utterly opposed to the
State Bank system. It has always been dif
2cu!t for nic to reconcile the inconsistency
of that class of politicians who hold that the
Stats Bank system is constitutional, and
that a United States Bank : is unconstitu
tional. It seems to me clear that the bills
for circulation of a State baak are 'bills of
credit' within the meaning arid spirit of the
Federal Constitation, and at this time they
certainly are such to all intents and purpo
ses; and though Dot issued by the State,
they are authorized by tho State to be is
sued; and no person or State can do indi"
rectly that which they cannot do directly.
Bat, iiowever this may be. there are many,
and among the number the writer includes
himself, who would rtjoice to see the Whigs
organized on their old time-honored princi
1. A United States" Bank, as the safest
and only constitutional bank.
2. A protective tariff, to foster Lome in
dustry and secciro commercial indepen
3. A judicious and equal system of in
ternal improvements by the General Gov
4. A distribution of the proceeds of the
public lands among the several States, in
proportion to population.
5. A stern opposition to sectionalism,
and a rigid accountability of all public
agents and officers.
0. Ac economical administration of the
General Government, and a liberal and
magnanimous foreign policy.
7. The maintenance of law anil order at
all bcaards, and unyielding opposition to
8. The Union for the sake of liberty,
and the old conservatism of the Whig par
ty ns the hest means of perpetuating hoth.
With such principles, firmly advocated
and boldly maintained on every occasion, if
we did not succeed, wa would at least prove
ourselves worthy of success.
As to myself, it would be a sonree of ev
er-flowing pleasure to he connected with
such a party, even if its 'manifest destiny'
is to he defeated. A minority, if honest
and sincere, will have its influence, and
success is hut a secondary consideration to
being right. The first is the whole aim
and object of the politician; the last is the
very oul of a patriot statesman.
It is to be hoped that the old guard will
yet retrieve its honor, and, if it leads not
to a glorious victory, it at least will march
to an honorable grave, if our country and
its liberties must go down as those of anti
quity hpneath tbe waves, first, of dema
gogueism and red republicnnism.and then of
a military despotism. We are in the midst
of the first, shall we escape the second?
THE WHIG PARTY.
A correspondent of the Philadelphia In
quirer advocates the revival of the hig
Party. He truly savs;
The great and leading principles of the
old Whig Party, was protection to the
American Mechanic and Workingman.—
Thus in the Whig party the American can
find all the Americanism he may desire.—
Again, the Whig party has always opposed
the extension of slavery. The great men
of the Whig party favored the passage of
the Missouri Compromise, and always sus
tained it, and when it was repealed, the
Whig party as a party n °bly opposed
against the united forces of the Democracy.
The policy of the Whig party has always
been opposed to the extension of slavery.—
While it lias favored States Rights and op.
posed the interference of one State in the
domestic a flairs of another, it has lookrd
upon the system of slavery as being truly
local, and said unto it, thus far thou shalt
come but no further. The true Republican
will find in the Whig party the true and
consistent opponent of slavery exteusion."
He further says:
"The Whig party was indeed a party of
patriotism. It always stood op for the bert
interests of cur common country, and op
posed whatever tended to endanger its
prosperity or the true interests of the peo
ple. Let then the Whig party be organ
ized, and let n* once more rally under the
aid Whig banner, and in the names of Clay
and Webster, and by the cherished princi
ples of our party, go forth to battle. Thcr e
are thousands of good Whigs who have gone
into the Democratic party, and who wocld
gladly come back and unite iu the good
woik. Let Philadelphia start the matter,
and I have no doubt that ere long will be
heard ringing through every vailey, and
from every hill top, the Whig trumpet, sum
moning together the hosts to prepare for
the great battle of 1800."
The thing cetns to us impracticable, tho'
we should be gratified to secitdoue, it'done
in the right spirit and effectually. We
could favor no re-organization of the Whig
party that was not unequivocal and decided j
in opposition to the extension of slavery—
TIIE WHOLE STORY.
Paste this up, and Read it often.
The balance of trade against us during
the current year, having to be adjusted in
cash, is more than one hundred and twenty
millions of dollars. And what caused this
excessive importation of articles of merchan
dise, tbe most of which wo ought to have
made ourselves? Common sense tells us
that it is the Tariff policy which has pre
vailed since 1847. And who dictated this
policy? The South—the growers of Cotton
whose great staple find its chief markets in
England. And who enable this single in
terest, this small minority of tbe Auiericau
people to control tho policy of the Govern
ment. in respect to this most important of
our material interests? Thcso-caiied Dem
Three times, now, have the foundations o?
our national prosperity been undermined
precisely in the same way. From the close
of the war with Groat Britain in 1815, un
til 1821, we had a period of free trade and
large importation, and some of us are old
euough to remember the distress and utter
prostration of tho country during that shin
plaster period, when wheat was less per
bushel than oats have been in ordinary
good times, and when ten bushels cf oats
were often sold for oue dollar cash. Well,
in 1824, a protective tariff law was enacted
and the country at ouce began to recuper
ate. The currency soon became good, ex
change regular aud very low, manufactu
ring tstablisbmeuis sprung up everywhere,
and the farmers, having a home market, be
gan to prosper too. Perhaps there never
was a more smooth and comfortable time
since wc became a uatioD.
Four years afterwards, (1828,) so pleased
were the peeple with the protective policy,
that Congress was induced to make it still
stronger. This led to violent opposition on
the part of the cotton growing portion of out
people, and ended in the Nullification move
ment in South Carolina, and the unfortunate

in 1840, theyphould be twenty percent. —
Most of us rehember tbe crash of 1836,
uud the distrosing depression that followed
and which wa only relieved by a return to
the protectivapoliey in 1842.
4n 1846, tb policy was again changed.
In 1547, the limine in Ireland, and a gen
eral scarcity b Europe, gave us high prices
for our surple breadstuff's, and that bore
us very well |ver one year. In 1848, gold
was discover*! in California, and that kept
us up for a fiw years; but all things fiud
their levil, aid they have found it, for we
now ree that-sixty or seventy millions of
gold, which csts as much labor as it is
worth, is swalowed up and lost, like our
eotton, tobairo and flour, in the overwhelm
ing flood of European fabrics which the
present free rade policy pours upon us.

tective polio'; nor have ever recovered from
a reverse lib the present except by the ie
turn to probation. These arc historical
facts.— Pittburg Despatch.
THE FAVORITE LOW WAGES STAN
HARE OF MR. BUCHANAN.
The Press, the Prnnsvlvanian, and other
Locofoco journals are republishing portious
of Mr. Butbanan's celebrated Ten Cent a
Day Bpeech The Lebanon Cornier sarcas
tically rema-ks as follows:
"No one will deny that we are fast com
ing down to that standard of prices which
has been tin theoretical delight of Mr. Bu
chauan and his satellites. And the result
of it is apptrent to any reflecting iuiud—
the rica wil be made richer and the poor
poorer. Miney will become, perhaps, twice
as valuabieas it has been, that is, it will
buy twiee is much. Consequently the pos
sessor of uvney will be twice as well off,
for money s valuable only for what it will
buy. Hut wo to the poor man. He owns
a little projerty, which under such times as
we have hid, was worth a thousand dollars
He had paid five hundred on it, and yet
owed five juridred. Under -the *goed time
coming,' when money is to be twice as val
uable, property will command but half the
amount of money; consequently that man's
property *ili bring but five hundred dol
lars. But he owes five hundred on it, there
fore he is worth just nothing at ail. And
the ricli man to whom he owed The five hun
dred dollars, will own the whole property
for the fivt hundred dollars he put in when
money was cheap. So through all the ram

its purity and patriotism, and in invoking
the spirit of the immortal CLAY to guide

The tost of the Extra Session
We observe that some of our contempo
raries labor under the mistake that the
State has been stiljected to a heavy evpense
for the late extra session of the Legislature.
This is not the case. The State has ac
tually made some 540,000 by the opera
tion, which the banks are obliged to pay,
over aud above the expense incurred. By
a provision iu the Relief Bill the banks wiP
have to pay a tax of one-fourth of one per
cent, on their cap : tal stock, on or before
the first day of January next, iu addition to
the taxes now paid by them. This will
bring in some §62,000, whilst the expen
ses of the Legislature have been only about
§21,000. The State will thus make tho
bilauoo clear profit. So after all, in a pe
cuniary point of view, tho Extra Session
has not been a bad operation.— Harrisburg

Ilow PRESIDENT BUCHANAN RECEIVES
THE LADIES.—A Washington correspondent
of the South says :
"Mr. Buchanan stiil continues to have
hosts of lady visitors, ar.il scarcely a pretty
woman to Washington, hut sue must
see the bachelor Piesiuent. His manners
toward his fair visitors show that he is no
'lady's man.' his graceful commonplace
seems to fail him with them ; and I have
seen hiui evidently sorely taxed to find a
few words to say to the dames who will find
their way to bis reception room. He issaid
to have beeu coaimpelied to ba7e recourse
to two stereotyped tphrases, which he invari
ably addresses by turn to the ladies, as he
runs the gauntlet of them at reception hours.
These: 'Madam, is this your first visit to
Washington?' Answer. A pause, and then
'Madam, I would advise you to visit the
Siuithsonion Institute.' After which the la"
dy is expected to vamose.
POOR PILLOW. —Gov. Andrew Johnso"
has just been elected by the Tennessee Le
gislature, U. S. Senator from tint State, in
place of Senator Jones, whoso term has ex
pired. This is the most complete settle
ment of the Pillow case yet. It is a rebuke
to the ditch-digger, and a final extinguish
er of his glory. Pillow wrote the fatuous
letter, wherein he calumniated some of the
best meu in the country, and appropriated
to himself all the honor of the Mexican
War, as o bid for Senator Jonas' seat. The
Tennessco Legislature exhibited its esti
mate of his services by electing Gov. John
son. Poor Pillow!
NARY RED TO NARY BROKER. —The de
vices of tlie banks in the west to save spe
cie, the commodity so scarce with them, are
original to say the least of them:—
"The Springfield (Ohio) Nonpareil says
the citizens of that town last week adopted
a new plan for protecting their banks from
being ruu by the brokers. Learning that a
broker had reached town from a neighbor
ing city to run the bank for coin, they
promptly placed on one side of the bank
entrauee a bucket of tar and a brush, and
upon the opposite, a long, rough looking
fence rail, beating tbis inscription: 'Nary
red to nary broker.' As tha broker ap
proached.the bank he read tho inscription,
glanced at the tar bucket, and retreated.—
The bank weut ou as usual.*''
