The negro paid no attention to the re-
mark, but finished his meal in silence.
He made some inquiries before leaving
the restaurant concerning the belligeren t
young man, and ascertained that he was
a clerk in one of the departments. The
colored man, who was none other than
II. B. Elliott, member of Congress from
South Carolina, at once laid the matter
before the head of the department in

A UIsti.GI1HED physician of West

Hilburn Darlington, that the cow-pox
prevails among the cattle in the neigbor
hood of Concordvil'e, Delaware county.
Dr. D , is using some virus is Lis prac
tice taken from a heifer, and has also
1 sent some of it to the physician in this
j borough from whom we received the in
formation. Cow-pox is a peculiar dis
ease among cattle, ana it was through a
remark made by an ignorant girl that she
had "had the disease that the cows have,"
that led Jen tier to introduce the system of
vaccination. Cow-pox in this country is
very rare. The history of the reception
of Jenner's discovery is like the history
of the discovery of the circulation of the
blood, and many other steps in the pro
gress of science, very curious.

The arrival of Prince Alexis at New
York was dispatched to Russia, where
it created au outburst of joy. Fears for
his safety had been entertaiued there.
A despatch from St. Petersburg, nnder
date of the 19th inst., says "In all the
principal cities of the Empire, especially

A Kansas despatch, dated on the 26th

Jackson. 1 hough I am sliding over
on to the shady side of life, on this clear
body as stoir
life as I did thirty years ago, but then,
what if a fellow has a mighty stout body
and his head isn't coutented, , or if his
head is contented, and his body sick, and
isn't worth nothing, which, if you can,
tell me is the worst, my body feels first
rate to-night, but my bead or heart isn't
feeling so good. I have a kind of a
sorry feeling for our good old party, I
can't just tell where I feel sorry, whether
it's in the head or in the heart, I wish
you'd write an article in the Skntinbl,
telling exactly where a fellow feels. Well,
I feel, I believe all over for our party,
I feel glad, because the ring got licked'
I feel sad, because we had to lick them,
but we did it in a christian like way, we
did it out of love for our party, I feel
sorry because you fellows got into power,
J an? I feel glad becansa you Republicans
kicked the ring as hard as you could.
I feel most confounded sorry that we
haven't Andy Jackson now to lead as
np to victory. I don't want you to stick
it in that I feel sad, because, we haven't
a grab at the loaves and fishes, for that
isn't so. I know that you fellows said
that Andy said, that all that a fellow
grabbed belonged to the fellow that grab
bed it. Mrs. Speak just now says, that
is not the way to tell it, that I ought to
say to the " victors belong the spoils,"
.nj ; ;r ni... : ......
i But I don't believe that Andy Jackson
j aid that, if he did, and you fellows would
follow up that doctrine in the South what
would become of them. I don't believe
tbem notions anyhow, let who may.
I never wanted any of the loaves aud
fishes. I never wauted any thing bnt
an office onee or twice, an I'll be hanged if
the ring didn't gouge me out. It'll all be
right though when the clearing is burnt,
as we used to say, long a go.
In my body I feel first-rate to.night.
I feel strong enough to go to the woods
as I used to do when younger, and fell
trees, aud clear the ground for the plongh,
That is patient work. Did you ever think
that there are more Jobs in the world
if we think of patience only than the
world knows, or will ever know ?
How we all pull off our bats and hur
rah, and shout, a great man is he who
can preach in such a way that will stir
the people, and get them to quit their bad
work, and do good work in place of the
bad. We say great is the lawyer that
can sift the grain of truth from a pile of
dirty trickery, and so hold np the truth
that all can see it. We call him great
who wields a truthful! and forcible pen
We call him great who is so" well
acquainted with the body, and medicine
that he can save from the "jaws of death"
as the preacher says, the people that do
suffer with disease ; but somehow we for
get to take off our hats and say, great is
the man that has had the patience and
honesty of Job to go into the woods, and
there build a cabin, and with his axe fell
the woods aronnd him, and clear the land,
and raise on it enough to feed himself
and little ones, and more besides. I tell
yon that I know men that cleared 40
acres, 50 acres, np to 150 acres, with very
little help. They cleared the way for
others. The world is better off by tbeir
living in it, and if yon are agoing to mea
sure a man by what he has done in this
world, then such men are great men, they
mayn't have what yon fellows, call the
polish, but they have the heart and pluck
to stick to the right ; that's what made
old Hickory great ; that's what makes
every man who has greatness in him
great ; that's what made that member of
the Speak family great, that went to the
head of the Nile.iii spite of the bad climate
and savages, wild animals, and big snakes
of Africa. "Be sure you'r right and then
go ahead," old Davy Crockett said.
Andy Jackson traveled on that line,
and I believe the members of the Demo
cratic party, is square on that line in every
thing but their politics, their politics is a
ring that doesn't touch the line anywhere
Why our fellows have got so far from
the old path that they are tongueing it
worse than they did at Babel, where you
know the wicked tryed to fix themselves
for an other flood ; the truth of the mat
ter is, the old Jackson democrats are near
ly all dead, and the fellows of the
school of James Buchanan, who old
Hickory didn't call Pennsylvania's
favorite son, but the Pennsylvania reptile,
have got our party into what that dream
er of lbs Pilgrim's Progress, that I talked
about in my last letter, called the "slough
of despond. 1 es sir, we're in an aw
ful bad fix, oar big guns are scared, and
they are talking about not nominating
any one for President next year ; they
want all your sore heads to hold conven
tion, and count noses, and see bow many
there are ; then they say, if your sore
heads are pretty strong, that oar party
will let them nominate a dissatisfied Re
publican, and oar party will rote for
him, on the ground that the offices shall
be divided among all hands concerned ;

thing The Moors overran almost the
whole of Spain. After a while a Spanish
King raised up and licked the Moors, just
as often as he pleased, just as Andy used
to lick you fellows and the British, bat
unfortunately the king died before the
country was rid of the Moors, then the
tide turned and the Spaniards were licked
as before. The Moors brought an army
to the city where the dead King was
buried. The Spaniards raised their
honored king, and put his body on a
horse at the bead of their army and
marched out of the city to give battle.
The Moors didn't stop to take a second
look they thongbt the dead king bad got
alive, and they-dug and left their whole
camp in the hands of the Spaniards.
If we could only git up Old Hickory,
in that way and scare yon-fellows out of
the next Presidency, that would be rich,
but I guess you fellows have too much
common school learning to be gouged out
that way. I can't help thinking what
a hard time I have to reach the Fair. I
earnestly ask your sympathy.
