LOCOFOCO SPECI LITOR3.
A story is going the rounds of the press
wbic'i will show the real consideration that
the demagogue leaders of the Democracy
have for the liish, on other subjects than
that of voting. We condense from the Chi
cago Trinune of Oct. 2d. It seems that a
bady of speculators had long looked upon
the site of Superior City. Wisconsin, as ODC
they wisftrcd to pos-ess. They were Douglas,
Frank Fierce Sidney Webster, Vice Presi
dent Breckenridgc, .Tesse P. Bright, and
others. Before the land was brought into
market and before it was even
when it cuiiid only be held by
ihe>e speculators employed an agent lo in
duce a company of Irishmen to build on the
ground. They did so, erected their
and staked iff and cultivated their gardens.
They fulfilled the requirements of the Pre.
eruption Law, excepting in recording their
intention to claim t;,c land. W hen the land
came into market, no legal claim to it could
be found on record,Wfcd the agent of these
~peculators bid it in, and ordered the Irish
men to decamp with their pigs and property .
Now, it was the intention of the Pre-emption
Act to protect this very class of ignorant
settlers, against the non-resident specula
tors. Under it, a lawyer for the Irish
brought a suit before the General Land Of
fice in Wisconsin to recover tnc land, on the
ground of prior settlement. ine suit was
decided against Messrs. Douglas, Breckeu
ridgs & Co., but will pre bally be cairied to
the General Land Office at asniogton*
TIJO New Turk Tribune predicts that by
the l<t or middle of next December, ut
itaet OHO hundred thousand persons in
the city of New York will be out of employ
ment and nearly cut of means. The ship
cards in New York are nearly idie, the
foundries but half working, and the great
clothing stores are doing very little. It is
stated that women Lave recently corue to
New York from places 100 miles away in
quest of work from the clothing stores, only
to bo turned off with none, and compelled to
beg their way home again. The Tribune
a l is, that places have looked for servan*
girls for -one time past: soon servant girls
will look earnestly for places, and be very
glad to And them. It is predicted that soup
houses for hungry laborers who can find 110
labor will be wauted before January! The

CAUSE OF MR. I'ORTER" t DEFALCATION.
—When it was r.nnouneed that Mr. Dorter )
Corresponding Secretary of the American
Sunday Shoal Union, a man of simple tastes
and habits, with a salary of $2,000 a year
was a defaulter to the amount of nearly
SOO,OOO, every body asked: "What has ho
done with the money?" Pari of the accept
ances were made to accommodate a friend
who was a paper dealer. But this leftover
$50,000 yet to be accounted for. The
Philadelphia Presbyterian, of last week,
states another fact that throws light upon
*ue mystery. Tneuty years ago Mr. Porter
weut into the morus niulticaulas speculation
which, it will be remembered, was going to
enrich many people all of a sudden.—
He used the funds or credit of the Sunday
School Union. He lost, like the real cf his
neighbors. Finding that he had sunk ten
thousand dollars of money not his own, and
not having toe moiai courage to confess lii
dclir.qnency, he used the credit of the society
being authorized to give acceptance in its
name—to meet the debt and the interest.
Ho Las bc-eu doing this for twenty yea r s—
the amount of course giowing all the time.
If this statement i 3 true, it shows most
impressively the folly of trying to right one
wru .g by another, and the infatuation 0 f a i
man who onto begins to try to financier
•himself out of difficulty.
Tits LAND SPECULATIONS.—An article
n the Chicago Tribune informs us that;
s-ioals of people from New England and lbs i
Middle Sates arc travelling westward to ;
look after tiie farm lauds and building lots
in which they invested sa much money last
summer unif spring, at a time 01 great infla
tion, or upou the security of which they
lent money to western men. The Tnbttie
adds that these investments are hopeless
En*, ano wilt be so for years to come. But
this probably bpends upon whether the
holders of such luuds and lots continue to
expect good prices. The article wc quote
ftou), s-iys that the amount of land now for
sale is immense, in fact out uf all propor
tion to the demand at present, or any pros
pective demand for the next ten years. As
for building lots, nine-tenths of them might
as well be sacrificed at once by their owners
for any price they will bring. From the
tone of the wtsfem papers it is quite clear
that none of the land now held by specula
tors will be saleable for along lime to come
unless thrown into the market for whatever
it Wui bring. Then emigrants aud settlers
will be attracted to "he regions which the
eager appetites of speculators had swallow
ed up. But if n< t then, the next tide of tm
igratiott w til pass over them entirely and
they will he forgotten.
flj?""Tbe Frederieksburg, Va., .Vetcs gives !
us the adventures of a hundred dollar bill, 1
and the good it ae joniplished. A merchaut ;

—Tiie Peninsular (Del.) J\'ews says: "The
people of the lower part cf Sussex county
continue to pick up silver coins along the
coast. A friend informs us that, according
to the best information he can collect, there
have been from tight to nine thousand dol
lars collected altogether. The coin date,.,
as far down as 1718, and is iD circulation
all over Baltimore Hundred. The prevail,

WHAT BECOMES or TIIE GOLD?—The
product of gold in California for 1856 was
$77,114,858; of which $69,136,922 were
exported to foreign countries. It is largely
trau-.hipped from Liverpool to London,thence
to France, Germany, and other pat ia of
Europe, to be manufactured into watches,
jewelry, &c., <!ko. Gold has become an
article of product and of export from the
United State?, as much as cotton, maize or
wheat. Prior to ibe discovery of the Cali
fornia hiines, the average export of precious
nietaLs was scarcely five millions of dollars
per annum, now the annual average auiouut
exported exceeds forty tu'.Fious.

The mjst skeptical people can be con
vinced by trial that r4l the family medicines
are not humbug, and that among the thous
and of butterfly iife thwe area few of great
merit, and undoubted worth. Of these,
Dr. Sanford's iuvigorstor or Liver Remedy
stands first una foremost among the reme
dies of the day that can be relied on as a
medicine that is ail it is reco turn ended by
its proprietors. It advertises itself on ev
ery trial, for there are uoue who-use it but
tell their friends to do so, and so it goes
from mouth to month till all the people of
the Union have learned the good of this tru
ly valuable medicine. It is recommended
with testimonials to prove its virtue for the
cure of iiver complaints of every kind, from
the worst Dyspepsia to a comuinu headache,
and is particularly adapted to Jaundice,
Deranged Stomach, Bowel Complaint*, and
diseases of children.
Oue or two doses arc said to cure a cold
with scarce a failure. It is worth a trial
ser this alone. It is particularly adapted
es the use of ladies, particularly those of
fodentary habits. Some ladies of the high
to tstnndiog in society have given their cer
tificates of its cScacy, and we say to ail
who arc ailing, try one bottle, and you will
