A Dutchman Abroad.
"Hallo friend, can yon tell me the way to

day of a Pennsylvania Dutchman, whom he
found hard at work, beside the road, a few

LIFE AS IT IS.
Let uK make an excursion down the street
and see whut we can learn. Yonder is the
wreck of a man's son. He was permitted lo
grow up without employment, went and came
as he pleased, and spent his lime in the grat
ification of spontaneous passions, dtsires and
inclination, with no one to check him, when
his cource was evil, or tncouiage him in the
ways ol wisdom. His father was rich, and for
that reason the son thought he had nothing to
do, ncr pari in honest labor to rerlorm.
Well, tbe fail.erdied, and the son inherited
a portion of his abundant wealth, 'and having
never earned money by honest toil, he knew
not the value of it, and having no knowledge
of business, he knew not how to use it, so he
gave loose reins to his appeiiies and passions,
and ran at a rapid pace down the broad road
to dissipation. Now behold bira a broken
down man, bowed with iiifimniy, a mere wreck
of whut he was, bo'h physically and menially
His money is goi,e and l.e lives on the charity

Ratification Meeting of the Americans in
Washington—Speech of Lewis D. Campbell.
city of Washington op Friday night, a ful re
promises port of which we Und in the National Orpan,
The Americas party bad a meeting in the
ol baiiiruay. j ne nrsi speaker was Hon. An
drew Stewart, formerly member of Congress
from Pennsylvania. When he concluded,
Hon. Lewis D. Campbell was loudly called
for, and took the stand and spoke as follows:
He said lie haa just come in, and did not
exactly know, what the meeting was doing and
what Ifiey were laming arjout; but il the ob
ject was to perpetuate the great principles of
American liberty, be was wnii them. luheers.J
It seemed to him that the old parties were
now in that particular aituation known as
"confutioa confuzzled!" Laughter. He
had labored wjfci his eminent friend from
Kentucky, (Mr Crittenden, who sat near him
on the stand,) in the old Whig party, shoul
der to chouldei; but that was now said to Le
defunct in the abstract. As to the old Demo
cratic party of the days of Jackson, he believed
if all Pierce's marshals and deputy marshals
should be armed with warrants, and should
take a year for the search, they would return
the warrants endorsed as did the Kentucky
constable when be treed his man in a swamp:
"jMon tti mernrus, oxer emmuui in ttcampi
lui up a itumpo." Laughter and cheers.
Here there was some disturbance in the
meeting, and cries of "Put him out," "Sag
Nichls," when Mr. C. cried, "No don't put
him out; but give him a teat on the stand!"
Order was soon restored, and be went on.
Mr. Campbell now went into a lucid and
eloquent, as wellsshumorousdefenceofsome
of the prominent principles of the American
party. He was rot a member of any church,
but be was inclined to the Protestent faith
because he was brought up in it, and because
history taught him it was the faith of freedom.
The American party wished to keep Church
and State aeparale, and they would do it in
spite of Jesuits. i Cheers.
The American nation were not as weak as
they once were. The Indians who once in
fested his own State, and who at one time
were near the place where he lay an infant;
these Indians who were hired by British gold
to murder the women and children, thanks to
the bold hcar't of Kentucky wl o marched to
the teller or Ohio, bad been exterminated.
The nation was nowstrotig, and in ended to be
on equal terms with other nations. They in
tended to give their citizens a right to travel in
foreign lands without having their baggage
ransacked by Papal authority to find and lake
away the Bible they kept for their privatene-
votions, even '.hough that Bible was the gift of
a dying mother, as the myrmidons or the Pope
do now. And we intend, when Sam gets
strong enough in the knees, and he seems to
be getting stronger eveiy day, to have our cit
izens buried decently when they die in a for
eign land. Nuw, an American Protestant dy
ing In Italy is not as decently buried as you
would bury a Newfoundland tog.
. He said e could and would manage ourowc
internal affairs 4osu.it ourselves also, without
any of the proffered aid ol John Bull, Patrick
M'Plaherly, or Huns Bergerakiterhopen either.
W e, like other people, had our troubles iu the
camp, but that was none of other people's bu
siness. The trouble w as about a colored gen
tleman on the fuel, or, in o' her words, a linger
in the wood pile. (Laughter.) On this mat
ter he had his own opinion, and should con
tinue to think for himself. But be thought he
could retire to an a me-room now with his
friend from Kentucky and his friend from
North Carolina, (Mes.srs. Crittenden and Haugh-
toii.) and though they were two lo one against
him, they could hx that matter up in ten min
utes, if it would only slay fixed. But the nig
ger business was an outside issue. It hsd no.
business in the American party, and, for his
pari, ne wtsneu io seep me gemmen ou color
out. (Laughter and cheers
Somebody had talked about the dissolution
of the Union! All he had to say about thai
was, "the thing can't be did!" (Tremendous
cheering.) Ho knew thut many of the gallant
Buckeye boys had waded the Ohio river, and
and wooed, won and carried home some of
Kentucky's fairtst daughters. Do you .-think
they want to split? No, sir! It's no use talk
ing abvut that. "The thing can'l be did!"
(Cheers and Laughter.)
You have mel to night to ratify the nomina
tions oflhe American party. Bui 1 don't care
for the men. They arc insignificant compared
with the principles. Men and platforuu are
nothing; that is. the details of the plallorms.
The great thing is the preservation ol the great
and glor'ous principles those men ore nomina
ted to suppurl. Americans! you now" have
your work before you! Your priueipJie. are
before the people. Your candidates are in the
field, and it only remains for tnu to do your
duty, and you will be victorious. (Great
cheering and long continued.)
Air. Crittenden, of Kentucky, and Mr.
Haughion, of North Carolina, afterwards ad
dressed the Assembly. Resolutions were
passed endorsing the candidates and platform.
We think the good people ofUluo will be
SDinewhal surprised al the speech of Hon.
Lewis D. Campbell. rw members ol Con
gress have had more to do with the "nigger
business" than the honorable gentleman.

An Exciting Fight.
A Few days ago a couple of men got into a
fihl, and as a consequence, il being nattirolliy
Hie case, a ring ot excited individuals got
around the parties, and each ar cording to his
own feelings in the matter, gave bim advice:
Teg it into him," said the ihoemnl;er,
"hammer his upper leather for him thut's it!
wax him, my In J, beat his soul out for him?"
"Cut into his fat, oid fellow, said the butch

yer punch his ribs! xou're n regular calf, you
arel Knuckle him now yer gut him u.ske
mince-meat of him!"
"Dress him well," said the tailor, "see how
he pants! fall him! give him a stitch in his rise!
button up his lip, and knock hun hangup!"
"Tan his hid," said the currier; "peel the
batk off his nose, aud damage his skin!"
"This suits me exactly," said the lawyer,
"get his head intnehoucery' and bleed him (ill
he pleads, then he's a good case." Then ad
vancing lo the other one, he si;d: "He's do
ing you an injury he's perfectly ferocious,
take the law ou It mi, and I'll look oul or the

penter. "Nail him! Knock his upper rights
from under him! cross cut him until he lies

"Pmg him in the eye," said a tobaccoist.
"Gel a double twist on biin, and then chaw
him up. I'ou't let him stump you, give him

"Hit him between the eyes with yourU","
said the Printer, "show him no i's till you t

The Dog who had no Owner.
We were traveling through Canada, says the
cotemorary, in the winter of 1839, and after
a very long day's ride, slopped at the Lion
Inn; and the contents of the stage numbering
about nine persons, soon gathered around the
cheerful fire. Among the occupants of the
room we observed an ill looking cur, who had
shown its wit by taking up its quarters in so
controllable an apartment. After a few min
utes the landlord enteredand observing the
specimen of the canine species, remarked:
"Fine dog, that ! Is he yours, sir ?" ap;
pealing to one of tbe passengers.
"Beautiful dog I Yours, tir f" addressing
himself to a second.
"No," was ihe blunt reply.
"Come here, Tup, perhaps he ia yoursslrf
"No," was the reply. 1 - '
"Very aagacious animal belongs to you I
suppose, sir ?" ,
"No he dosn't." . '
"Then he is yours, and a you have a treas
ure," throwing the animal a cracker.
"Nothing ol tbe kind."
"Oh ! (with .a smile,) he belongs to you at
a mailer of course ?" addressing the las: pas
"Wouldn't have him as a gift."
"Then yon infernal, dirty, mean, contempt
ibltwl.elp, get out I" and with that, he gave
him aucb a kick that sent the animal bellow
ing into tbe street amid the roars of the com
("How dore you," aaid a yoong squirt to
a mechanic, as they were both crowding in st
the Tremont Temple, to hear Jenny Lind,
"how dare you come lo hear the Nightingale
without a shirt collar?" :
"How tlieduce could I have a shirt collar'
when your mother hasn't sent home my wash
