A LITTLE ONE-SIDED.
The Pittsburgh Gazette says
Oh, no! old fashioned Whig principles are
nothing; the Tariff is nothing ; improvement of
western rivers and harbors nothing: there is
only one national principle, tlatery; there is
only one great question at issue which calls
for the solemn consideration and decision of the
American people, the duty of catching rui.a
way negroes! Every thing else must bend to
thia, and it must be done, too, in the " bonds of
love and duty." What signifies it that the
manufacturing interests of Pittsburgh and
Pennsylvania are prostrate? What signifies
it that the fires of our furnaces have nearly all
gone out, and that the workmen are scattered
abroad to seek a livelihood as best they may 1
What matters it that hundreds of lives and mil
lions of property are lost on our we?tern rivers
and lakes for want of improvement ? What
matters any thing that the people may justly
have to complain of 1 The only principle is the
support of slavery ; the only measure worthy
of consideration the endorsement of the finality
of the Fugitive Slave Act in the "bonds of love
To this the New York Express replies:
There is nothing in the Constitution of the
United States, we may reply, which contracts
for and guarantees protection to fumacep, or
makes rivers and harbors by the Federal Go
vernment, but there is an article of the Consti
tution which expressly, and in the strongest
terms, guarantees the delivery up,and on claim
only, of the fugitive slave. And hence, when
the Constitution is violently assailed upon that
point, naturally enough more attention is at
tracted. to the assault t!ian to assaults upon
interests not thus expressly protected there.
Comment. We do not intend to view this
matter in a party light, nor do we feel that we are
doing so, when we ask, how is it possible that
the Gazette can expect any party in the South
to protect Pennsylvania furnaces, to clean out
Pennsylvania rivers, to rectify any of the evils
in short, of which it complains? But a few
months ago a citizen of a elaveholdiug State,
in pursuit of his property, guaranteed to him
by the Constitution, was murdered in Penn
sylvania. The murderer is at large—the blood
of an unoffending man cries in vain for justice
—the example is held up by a large portion
of the Pennsylvania press as one worthy of imi
tation—and a similar fate is openly threatened
to all those who engage in a similar enterprise.
Can it be expected, then, that the South should
be particularly anxious to protect the interests
of those who so wilfully disregard hers? Who
hesitate not to inculcate murder when an
unoffending Southern man merely asks for his
own, and attempts to reclaim it by process of
There is no city in the Union, which depends
more directly and absolutely upon the Soutln
than Pittsburgh herself. Almost her entire
trade lies with the lower Mississippi, with Ten
nessee, with Arkansas, with Louisiana and with
Mississippi. If the slave populaiion were libe
rated to morrow, Pittsburgh would be a ruined
city. She does not hesitate to live and to
thrive upon the labor of the slave—she, in fact,
is as much dependent upon it as New Orleans
or Mobile or Charleston. Extinguish that,
and you put out the fire of every furnace in
and c-round Pittsburgh. Yet the city of Pitts
burgh supports a paper which is continually
assailing these very Southern people by whose
means Pittsburgh lives, by whose means she
has attained her present pitch of greatness, by
whose means she hopes, in time, to rival the
prosperity of the great Atlantic cities—yet the
representatives of the Southern people, not a
all interested in the iron and coal of Pennsyl
vania, are expected to forget all this, and to be
Btow the boon of protection upon those who are
daily calling them tyrants, felons, and man
atealers! We admire a forgiving disposition!
yet we think this is asking a little too much.
But the Pittsburgh Gazette is not singular in
its expressions of irritation at the South, for
not rewarding the people of Pennsylvania for
the murder of Gorsuch. The Hon. Joshua
R. Giddings thinks it perfectly right, that
southern men should reward him for his apoth
eosis of the runaway lately killed in Pennsyl
vania, while engaged in resisting a law of
the land, by voting for a bill to clear out the
harbor ol Cteaveland.
The conduct of southern members, in this
particular,meets with our sincere approbation.
The Whig parly is understood to be in favor
of revising the tariff of 1846. Immediately
after the compromise act, all of them, with
one exception, voted on the preliminary steps
in the affirmative. In the meantime Gover
nor Johnston vetoed a bill to enforce the Con
•:itutional provision for the rendition of fugt
live slaves. The question of revising the
tariff came up again, and it received but two
approving votes from the south. We hope
the south will always stand firm, whatever in
dividual opinions may be, in this positiont
Jt is the Thermopylae of the constitution.
|GREAT SALE OF PICTURES.
The picture gallery of the late Marshal
Soult was sold at auction in Paris, during the
Jast month. Ii consisted of 157 pictures, by
the first masters in the world. Among them
were many by the Spanish masters, collected
during his campaign in Spain. Out of Spain
it was the only collection, private or public,
which contained so great a number of Span
ish chef antra. It reckoned not less than
fifteen Murillos, among them the "Nativity of
the Virgin," the "Flight to Egypt," "Peter in
Prison," 6cc. It possessed eighteen pictures
by Zubaran, four by Ribera, seven by Alonzo
Cano, two by Herrera the elder, and a great
number of the best works of Sanchez Coello,
Llanos Valdes, Ribalta, Herrera the younger,
Ac., >11 painters of great merit, whose works
•rebut little known out of Spain. Out of the
157, 110 ere by Spanish masters, 22 by the
old Italian misters, and 25 of the Flemish
and Dutch schools. The sale was to last
three days, and to be interrupted at four
o'clock, ia order to cell cartas famous master
' * pieces. The excitement was very great on
the first day, because it was known that on
-flbatdey was to be sold the meet celebrated of
•It tin pictures, the "Conception of the Vir«
(fin," by Murillo.
So great was public curiosity, that although
Mr. Bonnfons de Lavialle, the auctioneer, had
allowed the gallery to be inspected privately
for ten days, and bad thrown it open for thrae
days more, it could not be satisfied. The
crowd was immense when the doors were
thrown open for the sale—agents from all tfe
ciiies, and the Princes in Europe, were pres
ent—and the pictures of lesser note sold rapid
ly. At last the "Conception" was put up. A
Paris correspondent of the London Times, thus
describes the picture and the bidding :
The order of sale was here interrupted, for
the purpose of allowing the great pictures of
the day, four in number, to be disposed of, the
first of which was the "Conception of the
Virgin," by Murillo, eight feet six inches in
height, by three in width. This almost divine
picture represents the Virgin in the act of
being carried up to heaven. Her golden hair
floats on her shoulders, and her while robe
gently swells in the breeze, a mantle of blue
at the same time fulling from her shoulders.
Groups of augels and cherubim of extraordina
ry beauty sport around her in the most evi
dent admiration, those below thronging close
ly together, while those above open their
ranks, as if not in any w ay to conceal the glory
shed around the ascending Virgin. All the
writers on the Spanish school of printing
agree in declaring this to be the chef d'ccuvre
of Murillo; and never, perhaps, did that great
master attain to such sublimity of expression
and such magnificent coloring. The biddings
fully responded to the high character of this
The first bidding was 150,000f., but that
price seemed so inadequate to the value of ihe
picture, that offer after offer soon brought the
price up to 4(10,OOOf. The three great com
petitors up to this point were (he MarqUis of
Hertford, an agent for the Queen ofSpain, and
another agent for the Emperor of Russia. The
biddings then continued with great spirit, un
til they reached 500,000f., when an involuntary
round of applause burst out at that sum being
reached. At 528,000f. a pause ensued, but
the biddings were again resumed, and, almost
without a check, the great price of 580,000f.
was reached. Here the gentleman for Spain,
who had apparently determined to have the
picture, paused. He again, however, went on
for a bidding or two more, when at last, on
586.0Q0f. (£23,440) being offered by a gentle
man in front of the auctioneer, the Spanish
agent gave in, and the picture was knocked
down amid loud cheers of admiration at such
a price being given. But this applause be
came absolute enthusiasm when it was ascer
tained that the purchaser was M. Nieuwerk
erke, the director of the national museums.—
The crowd rushed forward, shaking him by
the hand and cheering most heartily. The
auctioneer then announced in due form that
the purchase was for the Museum of the
Louvre, and the cheers redoubled. In fact,
the delight appeared universal, and it was sev
eral minutes before the sale could proceed.
Two other Murillos, "Peter in Prison,"and
Jesus and John, children" were purchased for
the Emperor of Russia, the former fur 151,000
francs, and the lutter for 63.000. The Einpe*
ror became, also, purchaser of the " Christ
Carrying his Cross," ofSebastian del Piombo i
for 41,000 francs. Marshal Soult had refused
80,000 francs for it. The whole proceeds of the
first day's sale reached as high as 973,739
francs. The price of the " Conception of the
Virgin,"reduced todollare, wasslll,34o! The
entire proceeds 185,010,41!
Most of our readers are, doubtless, well
acquainted with the history of the extraordina
ry man to whose genius the princes and pow
ers of the earth have been induced to pay so
glorious a tribute. Nevertheless, as there may
be others not so well informed, it can hardly be
out of place to say something about him.
Murillo, the greatest and most original of all
the Spanish artists, w as born at Seville, in the
year ltlß. Instructed in his early yeurs by
his relation Castillo, in the rudiments of his art,
he very early lost the advantage of that in
struction by the removal of his master, and
was compelled to labor for his bread in paint
ing small pictures for export to America. He
soon began to distinguish himself as a colorist,
even in this humble employment, and a new
impulse was given to his genius by his chanc
ing to see some pictures of Pedro de Move,
who had studied under Vandyke, and was an
imitator of his style. He afterwards deter
mined to go to Italy to improve himself, and
actually proceeded on the journey as far as
Madrid, where he met with Velasquez, who
immediately discovered his great genius, and
resolving that it should not be lost to his coun
try, induced him to stay at Madrid, by promis
ing him full employment at the Escuriat. He
remained three years in the capital, and then
returned to his native city with a high reputa
tion, and a pocket a great deal heavier than it
had been when he left it. In the year 1646, he
finished painting the Little Cloister of St. Fran,
cie, the work being executed in suc.i a style as
to excite the amazement of all beholders.—
From that time to his death, in 1682, hie pencil
was seldom idle. His success never made hiin
careless, but on the contrary, made him parti
cular not to lose his great reputation. His
works were numerous, and as he never left
Spain, afford the best proof of the excellence
to which the Spanish school was capable of
attaining. He was principally esteemed for his
fidelity to nature—for the brilliancy and fresh
ness of his coloring—and for the harmonious
blending of all the objects embraced in his pic
tures. His historical pictures have seldom
been equalled, even in Italy. In painting one
of them, "The Marriage of St. Catherine,"
upon the altar of the Capuchins at Seville, he
wounded himself in such a manner that he

GRAND TEMPERANCE CELEBRATIQN-1200
COLD-WATER MEN IN THE FIELD.
The Annual Jubilee of tbe Bona of Temperance
came off cm yesterday. At the hour anointed for
the uaenbling ol the different divisions, Old Hoi
fixed his burning eye upon the "Sons" aa they
hastened to their several places of rendezvous, as
if with a determination to make them wet, whether
they would or no. Speedily however, friend
Boreas came to the rescue of the sons from the fiery
(togs of the God of Day, and blowing a tremendoua
charge, summoned a cloud cupt whirlwind to his
assistance, which speedily quenched the attacking
heat, but kicked op a tremendous dust in tbe
performance of tbe triendly act. Amid the tumult
of the dust-fogfied streets, the National Division of
the Sons of Temperance—now in session—met at
Bosher's Hal!; the Grand Division of the State,
Union Temperance Hall; and the subordinate ci
visioos at their respective halls, rendezvousing in
Grace street, their right resting on 9th street. The
cadets of Temperance and the visiting divisions,
formed in the Capitol square.
At a little after 10 o'clock the procession formed
under the dire tiou of Chief Marshal VV. W.

The procession was a very imposing one and
numbered between 11 and 12C0 persons. Amid the
flying showers of dust, that penetrated almost to
the skin, the procession proceeded through Broad,
First, Main and Nineteenth streets,and Broad street
again to the African Church. The thoroughfares
were lined with spectators.
At the Church, the exercises were under the di
rection of the President of the day, P. G. W. P.
Wm. R. Drinkard, and nineteen Vice Presidents, as
follows : Thomas J. Evans, P. Van Deursen, Wm.
M. Fulton, David S. Wright, Samuel Taylor, O . F.

Hawkins, A. F. Martin and James P. Tyler.
After music and prayer, P. G. W. P. Philip S.
White, of Pennsylvania, addressed the assembled
multitude. He remarked at the outset that he had
seen in the Richmond Dispatch, that morning, an
article, evidently from the pen of his estimable
friend Mr. Pieaswnts, stating that that day was the
birth-day of George the 3d, whose acts of oppres
sion led the American colonics to revolt and to
pledge themselves by a declaration of indepen
dence to overthrow his tyrannical power. They,
the Sons, had in like manner revolted against the
grievous tyranny of King Alcohol, and under the
pledge of total abstinence were engage d in battling
against his power and seeking his overthrow. Mr.
W. then proceeded in very eloquent strains to speak
of the injurious effects of the use of intoxicating
liquors, first upon ourselves and secondly upon
others. His remarks were greeted with rapturous
P.G. W.P. Samuel S. Cary, of Ohio, next ad
dressed the meeting. He commenced by iayirg
down the postulate that the history o! the manu
facture, use and traffic of intoxicating liquors was
a history of biood from the days of Noah to the
present time—and argued at length in favor of the
necessity and propriety of total abstinence. Wi th
the benediction the proceedings closed at the
Church. In the midst of a heavy shower of rain,
between 2 and 3 o'clock, the several Divisions re
paired to Howard's Grcve, in the suburbs of the
city, where a plenteous repast, prepared by "mine
host" Jack Taylor, of the City Hotel, awaited them
The rain abated during the eating season, but soon
recommenced, compelling the division* to return
home as soon as possible, thus excluding entirely
the speeches which would have been made had the
weather been propitious. Notwithstanding the op
position of wind and rain we think the display was
a very excellent one.

These Pills are confidently recommended at
having all the virtues of the water, and in
many cases they are preferable. In derange
ment of the stomach and bowels, or want ol
action in the liver, their immediate effect upon the
liver and kidneys especially, entitle them to public
consideration. If the patient be bilious they search
out the bile and expel it from the system—unlike
all other Pills, they may betaken with impunity
(irrespective of weather,) as there is nothing it
them calculated to injure any one. In cutaneoui
diseases and eruptioua of the skin, of whatevei
sort, they are a sure rer sdy, and particularly effica
cious in diseases sue as females are subject to
dropsies, flatulency, itc., &.c. These Pills may just

cidedly the best in use tor the cure of all diseaset
resulting from irregular habits. Alter their use

Keep your Blood Pure.—ln order to
enjoy health during the approaching summer, we
would remind our readers that the "one thing
needful" is to keep the blood pure; and in order to
accomplish this we know of no greater purifier of
the blood to recommend than the celebrated Dr.
Hampton's Vegetable Tincture, which by its
wonderful cuies has established for itselt a impu
tation far surpassing any medicine known. We
would respectfully call the attention of the afflicted
to another certificate of the strongest character,
which may be found in another column of our pa
per, and would also remind them that this medi
cine is kept in our city by O. A. STRECKER,Main
Street, who is supplying the trade at proprietor's
prices. Call and get a pamphlet gratis.
How often is it that we neglect a alight
wound, burn, swelling or pain, in the vain hope
that it will be well enough in a day or two; inetead
of getting well they grow worse,fester, and perhaps
moniticsiion takes place,and the limb has to be am
putated; when if a little of H. G. Farrell's Arabi
an Liniment had been applied at the time of the
accident, it would hare cured it immediately. See
