THE MENS' RIGHTS CONVENTION.
One day fa the. winter, while feeding my cattle,
I heard a itrange sound, portentous of battle ;
I etxsightway- repaired to the Mene of alarm
And there saw collected the hem of the him,
They were gathered around, in conference strong,
Etch anxious to speak ofsosnething twa ttout ;
Of wrongs that were suffered, by young and by old,
And etch in succession their narrative told.
A stately old Shanghai first mounted the stand ;
She looked like a hen-roine born to command ;
She spoke of hens rights with voluble tongue,
whBe shoaU of applause through the audience rung.
8he says, "My dear sisters, our fete seemeth hard ;
We're trod under loot by the cocks of the yard ;
"Tis plain to be seen, tis a very dear ease,
That we're now a neglected and down-trodden race.'
Next spoke an old biddy, of Cbittagong Wood,
VTho looked as though born ere the days of the flood ;
With feathers erect, and fire in her eye,
She says, "For hens rights I'll labor and die.
Tffl a strong-minded hen,- you plainly can see,
longer Tfl yield to the rooster's decree ;
But true as the Gospel, HI soon let him know
That Til do as I please and loudly m crow,"
The next was a Java, in sable attire
Her looks showing vengeance, her eyes flashing fire ;
She suuakd out MHens rights is a subject most dear,
And if we're united, we're nothing to fear.
The good of the nation la what we demand,
Ad idle no longer we here ought to stand ;
But rouse to the battle, courageous and brave.
And crow like the roosters, our country to saye."
An old Cochin China next entered the ring,
And says, Tis a He, and no such a thing,
That our rights are allowed us, as much as we need ;
For we're surely in bondage, and ought to be freed.
Tf we labor In earnest, with might and with main,
And help one another, hens rights to maintain ;
The day is not distant when roosters shall know
That strong-minded hens will certainly crow.
A dignified Brama was next to appear ;
She spoke with much feeling, and free from all fear ;
She said she bad pondered these things in her mind, '
And to the side of humanity always inclined.
She says, "It's our duty an effort to make,
And to the foundation old errors to shake,
That our daughters may bless us, when fairly they know
That in the dark ages the hens couldn't crow.
The next was a Dorking, well fitrored with brass.
Who says that "strange things will sooa come to pass ;
The time is now coming, and shortly will be,
When strong-minded bens will rarely be free.
"And idle do logger we here ought to stand ;
But enter the field, and take the command ;
For we surely know better what's good for the race, '
Thau aid fogy roosters, who are out of their place."
A force little Bantam, as large as a quail,
Next mounted the rostrum, and loudly did rail ;
She screamed ont, "Like Gabriel a trumpet 111 blow t
I'm- a strong-minded hen I Fm anxious to crow 1
"Til lay no more eggs, nor set on the nest,
But strive for hens rights, my utmost and best ;
And if we'd be happy -as all of us know,
The only thing needfol is boldly to crow."
There was more to be said, but twas useless to stand,
My spouse was approaching with broomstick in hand ;
"Go wash up the dishes, and fetch in some wood ;
And then rock the baby P I told her I would.
I've thought these things over, and over again ; "
And my mind on the subject I now will explain ;
I think that the greatest of blessings below,
Is that wokkx should vote, and pullets should crow.
Preservation of Seed Potatoes.
BY J. N. CHANDLER, OF ADRIAN, MICHIGAN.
The potato, when first obtained from its
Dative mountains, was a small, watery and
even bitter tuber. By cultivation it has
been brought into so high and refined a
state that most of the countries of the civ
ilized globe look on it as one of the most
important articles of food. How has this
great change been brought about f How
has every one who has planted the potato
assisted in refining it! Generation after
generation has adopted the same treat ment
which has wrought this change. It may
be asked by what means ! I answer, by
violating the laws of nature. ,
. The natural place for potatoes is in the
earth; but most of those which are used
for planting are out of the ground from five
to seven months in the year. When we
dig them in the fall, we find them, if ma
tured, when baked or boiled, to be dry and
mealy. They are generally put into cellars
to remain until spring. As warm weather
approaches they are often removed to some
out-building, to remain - several weeks,
which renders them less fit to grow. Out
of this out-building we select our potatoes
for seed, although some of them may not
be planted before the middle of June
much wilted, of course and the remainder
are left for summer use.
Every one who has ever noticed the dif
ference between the flavor of a potato in
the fall, when first dug, and one iu the
spring which has been kept in a large dry
cellar, has observed that the flavor becomes
much impaired much more so than those
which are buried in holes in the earth,
where they retain nearly all of their fresh
ness and vitality.. It has also been observed
that farmers who have small and inconve
nient cellars keep their potatoes in lietter
condition than those who keep them in
large cool ones. Hence, by storing them
in the latter, and letting theru wilt before
planting, they become weakened in their
nature, and are subject to degeneracy, and
finally to disease.
In order to obtain good potatoes for seed,
make choice of a small spot of arable land
n which water will not stand an eastern
slope and new ground are the best plough
ed early in the spring, and furrowed four
or five inches deep, two and a half feet
apart. Select middling sized potatoes
which have touched the ground during the
winter previous, but do not cut them.
Drop one every eight inches' along the fur
rows, and cover them by filling the furrows
with earth. Then cover them with a top
tlressing of forest leaves or straw two inch
es deep. As soon as the tops of the young
plants are two inches high, pass between
them with a shovel-plough; do not hill.
This is all you have to do until falL When
the ground begins to freeze, cover with
straw, chaff, or forest leaves, ris Inches deep,
to keep them from frost. Your potatoes
will now have a chance to ripen and rest
during the winter. In this way, you will
have the greatest yield and best quality,
Continue this course from year to year and
the rot will not only disappear but your
crop will increase from twenty-hve to one
hundred per cent. The third year you
may increase your field crop by plowing
m tine manure. You will now have had

Dissolve in water two square inches of

and boil with flour, as usual, and when
nearly cold, stir in two tea spoonsful of
cloves or lavender, the whole inane a pint
of paste. Keep it in a well-covered vessel.
To prevent paste from getting mouldy, boil
with it a piece of sugar of lead of the size

A colored hand upon the Crescent City,
at the recent collision, went into the hold
with Mr. Martin to find the leak. On dis
covering a hole through which the water
was rushing into the boat, the black man
for a moment was in a study what to do,
but remarking that there were too irmnv
valuable lives on that boat to be lost, he
plugged his head into the hole, while others
procured blankets; but, before these could
be got, the cold water upon his head was dri

J3T Quite n scene occurred at one of our
second-rate hotels yesterday. It seems that
a couple, who represented themselves as man
and wife, had been for a week boarding
there stating that they were recentlv mar
ried and from Pittsburg, Pa. The female
was several times observed to be iu tears.
but no suspicion was entertained of anything
wrong until yesterday when the father of
the woman,who is a farmer residing in Cnva-
hoga county, came to town accomp anied by
another -daughter, and having by some
means found out the place where the man
and women were, went there in search of
them. It then came out that the pretended
husband was a carpenter whose wife and
family reside in Buffalo, who had induced
a young and foolish girl to elope with him.
The meeting of the erring female and her
sister as painfully affecting. The seducer
having seen the father of his victim ap
proach the house, made his eseane unner-
ceiyed and has not since been found. The
erring girl was taken home agatn. Cincin

Political Matter. Democracy--Past and Present.
How captivating is the term "Democra
cy," and particularly to those who for a
quarter of a century or more have voted
the straight Democratic ticket. The friends
and admirers of Thomas Jefferson and the
Democracy of which he is called the father,
are slow to break away from their party
attachments and associations, while there
remains a spark of that fire that kindles
and warms a genuine Democratic heart.
It is claimed for the so-called Democrat
ic party by its leaders and supporters, that
it is the same party that it ever has been,
that it possesses its wonted vigor, though
"shorn of such locks" as Hale, Sumner,
King, Chase, Hamlin, Bissel and a host of
others, that formerly led that party on to
victory, to say nothing of the multitude of
lesser lights that follow the blaze of prin
ciple rather than the bawl of party, and
that in rallying under the banner of "Buck
and Breck aud the Cincinnati platform,
they are supporting the same principles
that the Democratic party have ever cheit
Is this true? We know the mass of the
Democratic party are honestly desirous by
their acts and votes to carry out the prin
ciples of Jeffersonian Democracy. A large
number have investigated the subject, and
have arrived at the conclusion, aud correct
ly too, that the so-called Democratic party
of to-day is a sham and a counterfeit, and
poor at that; and that the only way to se
cure the ascendency of the principles of the
Jeiiersoman Democracy, is m the Election
of Fremont and Dayton in November next.
When, until after the election of Frank
Pierce, did the Democratic party claim the
right to carry slaves into Free Territory ?
When did the Plain Dealer, now the
most servile apoligist, and even advocate of
slavery extension, and all the wicked
schemes of Douglas and-Atchison, String
fellow, Pierce, & Co., hesitate to denounce
all schemes for the extension of slavery in
to Free Territory, until it had been full fed
with Government pap.
The doctrine of the Democratic party,
and especially of the Plain Dealer, was,
that slavejy should never be suffered to
enter upon a foot of territory hitherto free.
In the Plain Dealer, of Sept, 9, 1849,
is published the proceedings of the Cuy
ahoga County Democratic Conventoin, at
which H. B. Payne was nominated Senator;
the man who a few evenings since, at a
Democratic display on Bank street, denounc
ed the slavery restriction of the Missouri
Compromise as unconstitutional, and ad
vocated the equal rights of slaveholders to
take into the territories their slave chattels,
with the freemen of the North to take
their cattle and horses and hold them.
Among the resolulionspassedatthat Con
vention is the following:
"Resolved, That we are unalterably op
posed to the extension of slavery into Ter
ritory that is now free and while we ad
here to the belief that it cannot obtain a
legal existence in the territories of Califor
nia and New Mexico, without express stat
utory enactments; yet, as it may gam a
foothold there by tlie connivance ot .Execu
tive Authority, in defence of law, we aro
in tavor of ingrafting on every act for the
government of said Territories the princi
ples of the Jefferson Proviso."
Speaking of the rosolutions the Plain
"Nothing illustrates better the distinct
iveness of t he old standard Democracy from
any and all other parties, tlinn the plain,
practical, and pointed straightforwardness
of these resolutions. They aro the princi
ples of our candidates."
In the same paper is also published the
resolutions of the Democratic Convention
of Medina county, fully indorsed by the
Plain Dealer, the sixth of which is as fol
"Resolwtl, That Congress has the con
stitutional power to prohibit slavery in the
Territories of the United States, aud that
it is expedient and proper that tliey should
exercise that power.
The ninth resolution talks very much
like Republican resolutions of the present
day. It is as follows:
"Resolved, That no more Slave States
ought to be admitted into this Union, and
tliat we will use all constitutional and
proper means to prevent siu h a .coiibiiiu
In the Plain Dealer of Sept 19, 1849,
is published also the proceedings of the
Lake county Democratic Convention.
Among its resolutions is the one adopted
at the "Cuyahoga County Convention, reci
fc?d above, verbatim et literatim; and in
the same paper, among the resolutions
adopted at the Ashtabula County Demo
cratic Convention, is as follows:
Resolved, That we are opposed to the
introduction of slavery into any State or
Territory, especially into New Mexico and
This was almost the unanimous sentiment
among the Democracy prior to the election
of Frank Pierce. Even when the pet giant
of the Plain Dealer, S. A. Douglas, pro
posed as a compromise, that as an offset
to the admission of California as a Free
State a new Slave State should be carved
out of Texas and admitted, the Plain
Dealer in its issue of Febuary 20th, 1850,
used the to Ho wing noble language condem
natory of compromises for the extension of
"Vote it down, say we. Away with
any- compromise in tliis matter. The sub
ject is one that admits of no compromise.
What right has slavery in the territories
acquired from Mexico ! It did not exist
there when, we acquired them it was pro
hibited by law it has not been reestablish
ed. The Territories are free in law and in
fact, what is there to compromise ? What
can slavery give in return for an abandon
ment of the Territories to its accursed pre
tensions ! Blight and mildew and blasting,
and external discord. The question is not
between .North and south for the citi
zens of all sections havo an unquestioned
and- unquestionable right to settle in the
lemtones, to enjoy equally their richest
benefits. It is a question between Liberty
and Slavery between institutions which
make the laboring man, property, and in
stitutions which seek to make him a property-holder;
between a system which seeks
and promotes the interests of all men in
all sections, and a system which tasks and
degrades a large class, for the exclusive ben
efit of a small class, to the detriment of all
other classes. This system which has no
rights save those created and guarantied
by special law, Mr. Douglas proposes to
tolerate in Territories now free by law and
in fact from its presence. And this is
called compromise ! Away with it,"
This was then Domocracy. Such were
then the sentiments of Democrats, and such
the avowed sentiments of the Plain Dealer.
But after feeding at the public crib for
some four years, the editor of that consis
tent ( ?) sheet has grown suddenly wise.
The film that obstructed his vision has
been pierced, and he now sees the error of
his ways, and says :
"We, in '48 with most of our Democrat
ic friends North, were following our im
pulses in the matter. Now, with more
consideration and a much better under
standing of our duty we are following the
constitution. 'A wise man changes his
opinions a fool never does.'"
But he somehow forgot to add what he
seldom fails to do to his editorials "When
a man ceases to be consistent he ceases to
be honest." And yet this same Plain
Dealer characterizes those Democrats who
look in vain in the Cincinnati platform for
their time-honored principles who find
not in James Buchanan an exponent of the
Jeffersonian Democracy, as "sore heads"
and of the "sick list," and denounces the
club rooms of our city, where are tables
spread with newspapers from all portions
of our country and of all parties, and pub
lic documents of all kinds ; and where maps
of our country are hung upon the walls, all
to furnish information to the masses; and
all who choose to go and read and study,
and be informed in relation to the history
and condition of the Government, can do
so, as "political brothel houses."
This will do for a sucker of the public
teat while supporting for President the man
who would give to Southern postmasters
the right to open letters and packages, to
search for "incendiary publications" to make
bonfires of, but Democrats who have not
been wise ( ?) enough to charge their love
of liberty to servility to the slave power,
will see in tho Republican platform the
Democratic sentiments that they have
hitherto supported iu reference to the ques
tion of slavery extension and slavery restric
tion, aud will recognize in Fremont the
man to carry out those principles; and will
in November next roll up such a majority
for Freedom and Fremont as will set even
the editor of the Plain Dealer to inquire
into the expediency of making another
"charge," and following, again his better
A Good "Take Off" on Clay.
Early yesterday forenoon a small crowd
at the Bramble House comer were gather
ed around a plain looking countryman,
who was reading from a small hand-bill or
circular, containing in substance the letter
of "J. D. D.," as published in tho Journal,
a few days since. The letter, as our read
ers will remember, is addressed to James
B. Clay, the "degenerate son of a noble
Sire," who now fraternizes with the 'hounds'
who pursued his illustrious father to the
threshold of tho grave. As the country
man was reading, Mr. Clay, who was stop
ping at the Bramble, hearing his name
spoken, approached the crowd, and inter
rupting the reader, inquired what it was.
"Why," said the countryman, (who of
course-had no idea that he was in the pres
ence of the distinguished gentlemen him;
self,) "it's a mighty good thing on that
prodigal, Jim Clay, who's been brought up
bv tho old liners to come- over-nd- help
carry Indiana." "It's d -d good" said he,
worming up with the subject. Clay
straightened lmnselt up pompously and
with an annihilating emphasis and imper
ious gesture replied, "I AM JAMES B.
CLAY, SIR1" Tho countryman nothing
abashed by tho "plantation manner" of the
august individual in whoso presence he
thus unexpectedly found himself, coolly sur
veyed him from head to foot, and placing his
thumbs in his vest, threw lamseif back a

"I had no idea the old stock was so near

was inimitable, and the joke so broad, that

in the laugh, and Clay beat a retreat

to live in a free country. They tell us we

there is neither freedom of speech or of

to hold slaves. Suppose a free white man,

CRUSHING OUT THE REPUBLICANS.—
MOBBING THE REPUBLICAN
The Republican Association held a meet
ing last evening at the 1 eraperance 1 emple,
and in the absence of the I' resident, Air.
Elias Hawley, on motion of Mr. Wm. Gun
nison, Mr. F. S. Corkran was called to the
chair, and Mr. Wm. E. Coalc Jr., was se
lected as secretary pro tern.
Mr. Wm. Gunnison, from a committee
appointed to report an address to the Re-
puhcans ot this State, supmitted one which
set out with the declaration of their devo
tion to the Constitution of the Uuion, and
of their adhesion to freesoilism in the Ter
ritories admitted ; declaring tho repeal of
the .Missouri compromise to be a breach
of faith on the part of the South, and that
peace and unity conld not again exist with
out the sam was restored.
It also declared that the charge made
against them of being in favor of Abolition
ism was unjust and unfounded, as they
held the opinion that the emancipation of
the slave would tend to render nis condition
worse and fatal to the black race, unless
the Government should take steps to colo
nize the manumitted slaves. It declares
slavery to be pregnant with difficulty by
causing a monoply of the soil of the Slave
StatesTaud that it tended to subjugate the
right and interests of the non-slaveholder
to the slaveholder. The Kansas act it de
nounces as a fraud, and also denounces the'
Administration for employing the Govern
ment troops in civil war existing in that
Territory, as the address sets forth, against
the Free State men.
At this stage of the reading of the ad
dress a large number of persons who had
assembled in the room and around the door
created some confusion by crowding and
laughter, when a Mr. Meredith, well known
as a Sunday street preacher, passed down
the room to them and commanded si
lence and ordered them to leave the room
or take seats. This was succeeded by loud
laughter, applause and hisses, and three
cheers being proposed for Fillmore, they
were given amid the utmost confusion and
terrific noise produced by stamping, clap
ping of hands, &c Next three cheers
were given for Buchanan in the same fash
ion, and for some twenty minutes there
was kept up a succession of cheering for
these gentlemen, alternated with loud
groans for Colonel Fremont, Corkran, Gun
nison, Fessell aud others taking part in the
meeting the whole being interspersed with
cries of "turn off the lights," "tar and feath
er them," feo, while loud calls were made
by the same parties for speeches from
those concerned in the meeting. Some of
the lights then being turned off, these gen
tlemen commenced leaving the room, when
they were saluted as they passed through
the crowd with groans, hisses and other
similar sounds and remarks, they making
as hasty'-' an exit as possible, followed by
the crowd, when an immense concourse
had assembled, and upon reaching the street
loud cries were made for rails, upon which
to ride them, and the cheering and groaning
was renewed. Messrs. Corkran and Col.
Wm. E. Coale were followed by the crowd
and roHghly hustled about until they had
reached the corner of Gay and Fayette
street, where the former was tripped up or
knocked down, and the tails of his coat
cut entirely off; while the latter-named
gentleman, although not so roughly treated
was pushed and hustled ab6ut in other
than a pleasant manner, and his hat mashed
in. They were then allowed to take their
departure, while the crowd amused them
selves by cutting the portion of Mr. Cork
an's garment they had secured into strips,
and distributing it among them.
