belligerent powers of Europe. We have

belief of Divine direction, the intejjrfly of

If there be a power on earth that can ap

Besides, men .forget that "vigilance is
thc price of liberty;" hence the frequent
cry, "Don't agitate, don't excite the Cath

men are willing o barter truth for peace
too often. They forget that free discus
sion, a free Press, and an open Bible, are
the ruin of the power of Popery. They
forget that th great Reformation of thc
sixteenth century was effectuated by a war
of controversy, that truth and liberty
will exterminate error and despotism.
Let us not jdread controversy. Truth

But, to treat tho matter seriously. In
what attitude shall we be placing ourselves
before the people of the other continent by
proposing such mediation ? Taking as a

A Care for Hard Time.
Sixty of the most fashionable ladies in
New York have formed a society for the
promotion of American industry, by en
couraging domestic manufactures. The
members pledge themselves to wear noth
ing which is net made in America, and the
fire is spreading.
We are glad to see that American ladies
are turning their thoughts to this impor
tant subject; and when "fashionable la
dies" will lead off, we cannot but hope that
others will do likewise. Charles Stetson,
Esq., of the Astor House, N. Y., writes
to the Cincinnati Gazette, under date of
Dee. 28th, in which he says: "Last
evening there was a large soiree given
here; the idea was, that nothing but
American goods should be worn on the oc
casion, and the effect was delightful.
American silks could not be found, but
calicoes and mouslin do laines were all thc
When tho ladies of our country under

hope for- great results. A leading paper
in Cincinnati, in calling the attention of
ladies to this subject says :
"Wo would recommend ladies of Cin
cinnati to form a society of tho same sort,
and resolve to wear only American manu
factured goods ; begin the New Year with
this determination ; make domestic fabrics
fashionable, and we shall soon have good
times. We purchase twenty millions of
dollars worth of foreign silks every year,
which at ten per cent, is tho interest upon
three hundred millions of dollars. Let
there be a reform."

DFMOCRATIC STATE CONVENTION.
Below will be found the proceedings of
the 8th January Democratic Convention,
for the nomination of State Offices, which
we have no doubt will prove interesting.
For want of room we omit the Resolutions.
Mr. Means, of Jefferson, moved that the
Convention proceed to ballot for a candi
date for Governor. Agreed to.
Tho following persons were announced
as candidates :
Col. Wm. Medill, of Fairfield ; Col.
Samuel Medary, of Franklin ; Col. D. P.
Leadbetter, of Holmes.
The vote being ordered by counties, re
sulted as follows :
For William Medill.... 177 votes.
" Samuel Medary 69 "
D. P. Leadbetter....... 12 "
Col. Wm. Medill, having received a ma
jority of all the votes cast, was declared
duly nominated as the Democratic candi
date for Governor.
On motion of Mr. Follctt, of Licking,
tho Convention proceeded to the nomina
tion of a candidate for Lieutenant Governor.
Mr. Steedman having received a major
ity of all the votes cast, was declared the
Democratic candidate for member of the
Board of Public Works.
From the Old World.
It is already known that Austria, some
time since, made a treaty with England
and France, by which Austria becomes a
party in the strife, provided peace should
not be made by the beginning of thc pres
ent year ; which is not at all probable.
By the latest arrivals wo learn the fol
Omer Pasha was at Varna, engaged in
embarking nineteen battalions for thtflCri
mea. England. Parliament had been open
ed, and tho Queen's speech delivered,
which was wholly occupied witb the war,
excepting one sentence, where the says :
"I have concluded a treaty with the Uni
ted States, by which subjects of long and
difficult discussion have been equitably ad
justed." The rest of the speech speaks of
thc army in tho Crimea with admiration
and gratitude, and praises the co-operation
of the French.
The Queen also says that she has con
cluded a treaty with Austria, and she calls
for instant reinforcements to go to tho Cn-
powers. Every intimation of mediation
from abroad in their difficulties has been
spumed, and so well is this understood,
that we do not think, that in any event,
such mediation would be proffered. The
People of this country may regret the ex- j soil for four long years, and he is gone !
the work they long to accomplish. They j istenso of the war, and ardcutly desire
want and need the secular arm the glo
rious Inquisition, with which to silence all
political and anti-Papal heresies. But as
that orthodox and merciful institution can
not bo conveniently, comfortably and suc
cessfully brought into operation here; they
must do the best they can without it, and
we have seen the results. . y
The efforts of Americana thus far are
only inceptive. They have began to vin
dicate themselves from the contemptuous
opinion of a foreign hierarchy, and defend
their native land from a more destructive
invasion than that of arms. 4 The hosts
are marshalled for the perpetuity of free
dom. They desire to transmit our institu
, tions, unimpaired, to the latest generations.
They combat a foe within the countiy,
whose cry is power, as well as opposo all
- interference of foreigners in our internal
policy. . .

and ho thinks the war makes it ; Jones,
because the times are hard, and ho thinks
tho war causes it; and Brown, because he
thinks war is morally wrong. But if out
of the elements at work at present, the ad
vent of the reign of Liberty is to be has

though in other respects meet and proper,
which would retard that event, we would

"Who reads an American book?" was
for some time a cant question among Brit
ish pretenders to literary exclusivcness.
Jonathan has so often responded to the
question, Yankee-like, by asking another,
"Who does not read Irving, and Bancroft,
and Prcscott, and Bryant?" and a host of
others, that our coufliua across the water
have, to some extent, "knocked under," or
"acknowledged tho corn." Thc following,
from a recent number of Blackwood, sa
vors somewhat of the old spirit, though the
writer is driven, after trying it in Latin, to
uso one of these same Yankccisms to ex
press his idea. In speaking of the trans
lations of Mr. Theodore Martin, he says:
"If he docs not choose to venture before
thc public, in propria persona, or as these
slang-begetting Yankees, who are mining
our language, would say, 'on his own hook,'
we shall be but too happy to greet him so
often as he appears in the character of
Privato letters say that tho ratification
of tho treaty with Austria, was exchanged
at Vienna on the 14th.
If tho negotiations now pending do not
produce peace, Russia will call out 16 men
per thousand, equal to one million of men,
to take the field as soon as possible.
The text of the Russian note which
Prince Gortschakoff addressed to Count
Buol, at Vienna, on the 28th, was as fol
lows : "Tho undersigned is authorized to
declare to M. Buol, that His Majesty, the
Emperor, accepts the four propositions of
the Cabinet of Vienna, as a starting point
for tho negotiations of peace."

All his great American designs are post

schools for four years longer ; the immense
cathedral "up town" will likely remain in
embryo until better days, and ct ceteras,
until tho Bishop comes home again.
But theu, with a red cap, perhaps, perch
ed on thc summit of his shaven crown, and
a powerful bull, fresh from the stall of the
Vatican, may it not be expected that the
stubborn trustees of the St. Louis and the
sleepy American Catholic legislators will
be gored into submission and work by the
command of thc Cardinal John ? I don't

the horns of the fractious imported beast.
The Old Family Bible. Who does
not regard it with reverence ? Who does
not love to turn over its thumb-worn leaves?
Who does not seek agiun and again the fa
vorite scripturo texts which a mother or
a grandmother read aloud long years since
numbered with thc past ? And shall wo
allow foreigners, guided aud governed by
the Tope of Rome, to banish this precious
book the Bible from tho sight of our
children ? When thc innocent little prat
tlers toddlo along to our common schools,
shall they not listen to the great and sub
lime truths of the Protestant Bible ? Ban
ish this precious, invaluable book from our
schools and we, Americans, yield to Rome
the key to steal from us as a nation all our
power, wisdom and goodness ? No, never

it sound, and present it to our children and

KossuTn. Never, perhaps, was the
eloquence of M. Kossuth more conspicu
ously displayed than in the speech recent
ly delivered by him at St. Martin's nail,
on tho anniversary of the Polish insurrec
tion. Its rare command of the resources
of the English language more remarkable
for being exhibited by a foreigner its
rich and varied diction, its flashes of vivid
imagination, and the spirit of deep-souled
enthusiasm that pervaded it throughout
all mark it as a display of oratorical powers
of tho very highest character. Nor when
we pass from tho beauty of tho mere vehi
cle to tho sentiments that it conveyed, can
wo hesitate to say that it contained very
much with which every Englishman must
most deeply sympathize.
Beauties op the Iv. A case was
decided in tho Common Pleas at Cam
bridge, Mass., the other day, which illus
trates thc "glorious uncertainties of thc
law." In tho spring of 1840, Tuttle, of
Acton, sold a cow to a Brown, of Concord,
for $50. Soon after the purchase, Brown
discovered that the cow had one dry teat.
Ho then requested Tuttle to allow him a
discount of $12,50 on the bill, and stated
that he was ready to pay tho balance.
Tuttlo refused to make any allowanco for
the dry teat, and sued Brown for the whole
bill. The case was decided in his favor,
but was carried up on appeal, again retur
ned to the Common Pleas, where it has
remained on the docket until last Tuesday,
when it was decided in favor of Brown.
The costs have amounted to $800.

From the Spectator,
IRELAND IN AMERICA.
A Traveller in the Western part of Ire
land, reports that the Celtic race is rapidly
disappearing from its own ' peculiar prov
ince. For miles and miles not a trace of
cultivation or habitation remains, saye
heaps of stone and unroofed huts. "The
light and athletic mountaineers of Conne
mara," says the Galway Packet, "pre no
where to bo seen ;" "tho working classes
have gono ;'' and . half-stunted, sickly,
dwarfish relics, alone remain. The Far
West of the United Kingdom is desolate,
and emigrants from England begin to take
possession of tho solitude.
We all know whither those pcoplo have
gone ; some out of tho world by famine
and pestilence; but many more by emigra
tion to America. The most Irish part of
Ireland has gone from its own Far West
to a further West; but there it stops,
mainly in the Eastern parts of America.
We have noticed it as a settled elemont of
tho American republic. It has established
itself and ita piggery in New York ; it has
so completely taken to Boston, that the
true American, it is said, has left tho body
of that town for the outskirts, abandoning
the corporation to become a Western Dub
lin. How much of this account may be
exaggerated we do not know ; but if it bo
fiction, it is founded on fact. Tho Irish
party claims, in many instances, to turn
the elections; quite enough to provoke
that reaction of Native Americanism which
has appeared in a paroxysm, and then sub
sided, as if tho Americans, tired of their
duty in preserving America for Americans
and of not surrendering to Emigrant Ire
land. If the emigrants aspire to command the
balance in thc republic, they are already
making their influence felt, and after their
own fashion. Attempts have been made
in certain towns to take under control the
management of tho public schools, and in
some way or other to bring them under the
influence of Popery. Nay, Irish agitation
of ita own peculiar kind is established on
the other side of the Atlantic. Mitchell
and Meagher, torn from their native soil
escaping from Australia by breach of pa
role repay the welcome which they have
found in America, by endeavoring to agi
tato against the Americans to undermine
supplant, and supersede the indigenous
politics of tho republic. They have un
dertaken to teach tho Americans how to
cut gordian knots that have perplexed the
wisest and tha gravest, from Jefferson to
Honry Clay j thus, John Mitchol has set
the example of breaking through all diffi
culties connected with tho subject of sla
very, by fulsomely praising thc institution,
to thc horror ana detestation ot tnc very
men w-ho protest against abolitionism.
Talk to a man inconsiderately of the skel
eton in his house, and he hears you with
fright and disgust ; but worship his skele.

vices and he recognizes the human devil
who contemplates some trap to make him

which was to the effect that they would

chairman of the meeting. She was the
belle of the place, and a young man was
paying his addresses to her. When hia
friends saw hor name on the paper, they
gathered around him, and said
"George, did you see this?" -;
"Of course I did. It is all gammon and

Well, she retreated with dignity, and
responded "No, eir-ee." . (Laughter and
applause.) He still pressed his claims, and

a big furniture wagon, marched solemnly
up to the place of conflict, and was there
