J. W. Taylor.
t ! Tbia gentlt-man, on Thuredny evening last,
addretavd the liquor portion of the Demncra'
if putj "to the beit of bis humblu abilities."
Wt must any in justice to Mr. Taytar, that
l ie father a plcsant speakor; and th.it in
ur opinion, be would make a very fair speech
a a subject be did not fee bimsrlf to be cn-
.tiretywron. It was plainly to be seen by
every one present, that Mr. Taylor wns
4readfu!!y eonscience-statten throughout bis
waolo apeack His countenance, his gestures,
Kis voice, all indicated it. Mr. Taylor is a
taao who knows too mud, not to know that
every oaitiou he took was utterly false; and
be ia loo good a man not to have felt regret,
and to curse in bis very heart, the fato that
brought Lim before bis fellow citizens a poor
trembling traitor to himself, to bis Gad and
to bis fel'ow man.
Mr. T. labored to show that if the "Crow-
bar Act" waa not sustained, tho "dtar yeo
pit would nave to It taxed to pay a state
!i-lt cf 1 1 0.OOO.CCO. We have not now time
to examine the gentleman's arguments, on
this subject, nor indeed need we; every man
of aenae who heard them, pronnnced them
false and tilly. We wnuld have been glad
ia bars beard tbe speaker inform bis audi
ence, how the state of Ohio came to be in
debt sv enormously. We should have been
pleased, and so would many of his bearers,
to bate heard bim attempt to accouut for tbe
t-eo millioni and a half dollar! spent by
the Board of Public Works, fur which tho
tale has not on tent to show! -
Why did the gentleman not say like an
lonttt man, that it is our Public Works which
have sunk the state so shamefully in debt,
and which ia sinking it deeper every dar, and
that every honest man should bo in favor of
selling these works and paying of tbo debt
with the proceeds. Would that oppkiss
the people ? As to the Maine Law, Mr. Taylor
said, tbe only thing tbe Legislature ougbt to
- do is to resolve to let erry county and tow n
ia the ktate tnrke ita own laws, lie waid
'that c prohibitory Liquor Law should not be
enacted in tbe State of Ohio, bdcacss, there
are some people ia the state who carao from

from Cinoinnnti or Chicago to Pittsburgh
Tlivro are msny towns on this road tliit de
serve a parlicuUr notice, but fur wnnt of time
and place I will only apt-ale of the beauty of
the aceoery about New Brighton, aituntcd on
a bold curve of the Ohio Krver, with ita long
atretebca of gre-n vallies down the river for
many miles in full view, And then the grand
old hills, how bright their dark gioen bronra
luked in the sotting sun, after the plentiful
shower of the morning, and the blue ranges
of mountains thut loomed up in tho distmce
over these nohlo oIJ hills seemed to be bluer
tli-m usual, and the yellow rnys of tho depar
ting sun mingled with green and bluo ol the
hills spread a kind of nalo of beauty over
this lonely rale which lent an enchantment
to the view, and made it truly nppenr as Mrs.
Partington aj a "romantic" I don't won.
der that Horace Oreely laid out so many
thousands of dollars in the purchase of real
estate, fur the town bns not only beauty but
the means of wealth in its mines of coal and
Iron. Twenty-fivo Miles farther up the Ohio
we find the City of Pittsburgh, celebrated for
many things, but better known for ita sreuky
appearance, and I must say that it was fur
worse than I bad au'pced. Every thing
seemed to be covered with the black dust
of ages, not even excepting tho Ladies faces.
The Citv now contains near 13,000 inhabi
tants, lis railroad connections are great, and
there is nothing that can prevent this place
from being at somo future lime no mean ri
val of Philadelphia. The Mononcahala
House is situated on the river side of the ci
ty and from its balconies can be had a splen
did view of boats and lion works, high bills,
rivers, long bridges, one wire suspension, I
believe the longest in America.
At 9 o'clock A. M. I left for' Phiadelphia,
on the Pennsylvania R. R. The construction
of this road baa cost a vast amount of money
and to the State and Cities through which it
passes is a great ber.c6t; but they never can
make it do anything in the way of it through
business. Only think an express train killing
twenty.fuur hours between Pittsburgh and
Philadelphia, and had it not been for the
kindest a'tention from Mayor Adams, the
passengers would have become quite dissat
isfied. Persons who are not in a hurry, and
have an eye for the beautiful, and a taste for
good eating, will really enjoy this route, for
on it is some of the wildest and most roman
tic scenery imaginable, particularly in crossing
the Alleghany Mountains. Then after leaving
the Mountain-house, comes the great rural
landscapes that are met with all over this
eastern part of the Slate, and runny places it
seems as if the cars were indeed pasting
through the garden of tbe world. If so Phil
adelphia is at the gate. Of this finest of Cit
ies, I can say nothing, as butiness and rain
made it irapossablo to see it, but can speak
from tbe Book and say the Uerard is a palace,
and is kept by men to the manor born.

than lo graet a Prtlaoe ball Query,
Having been here for the last eight days,
in tho mean time finished my business and
seen many sights, which the City is now full
of, thought I would drop a line. ' First, the
great ' Crystal Pulace, the centre of all at
tractions. What shall I say of it? Some
call it a Grand Ilutnlug. but that impression
is wearing off, still it is evident that the ihow
is not what the projectors intended it should
be. Ytt it ia worthy of our praise and half
dollars. The only thing to be regretted is,
that there baa been so many mustachied
Gen a employed in the plan, and in tbe buil
ding of the Palace. It ia not as a whole.
American, aa it should be in every feature.
And then its present management is so aris
tocratic. A large pair of foreign whiskers
meet you at the tickotodico, and keeps you
wailing tor change about twice as Ions as a
Yankee would. Then two or three Policeman
alt dressed out ia the full accouteruients of
the London police, are at your elbow contin
ually, informing you that tbe tniJdle door is
the place for weekly ticket, which you know
juat as well as they. . At tbe door you meet a
Ooatee who smiles blandly and aaya ita all
right. Once in, the behuMer can not but be
tilled with admiration with the beauty and
novelty of the scene that meets the eye at ev
cry turn. Standing near tbe centre of the
building which is in the shape of a cross,
view can be bad of tbe whole Palace at one
glance, which embraces so much that ia beau
liful that it beggars diseriplion. The same

alone she excels tbe world. Germany has
contributed largely to fill up the variety of
curiosities, and the articles show that ner nr

cal instruments. Austria takes the lead in
line shawls, and many kinds of wollcn and
ailk goods. The United Stales at this fair
beat the world and "ihe rest of mankind."
Tbe goods and artcles the Yankees here ex
liibt to the world, have the points of useful
ness, so prominent, that all must see their
utility, and so tastefully ornamented that all
must admire. It makes no difference what
it is, from a patent wash tub, to a sewing ma
chine or a steam engine. Speaking of engines
reminds me that the most beautiful one in
tho world was made in the state of Alabama,
strange as it may seem. I have mentioned
live of the nations that are most fully repre
sented. Then others have contributed some
thing; and all together make a greater show
than it will ever be the privilege of the
American people to visit again. Now is the
time to visit the great World's Fair
whi'o it is at your door as we might say
for rail roads are so numerous that people
from the Slnlo of Maine, to the shores of the
Misbissippi, can in a few hours be whirled to
tho mstropolis of the western world. Prince
Albert hns the honor of being the originator of
tins grand scheme, which tends to civilize and
promote the peace of tho world ; nnd leads us
to think that the sword shall be beaten into
plough shares, and the spear into pruning
hooks, nnd that nations shall learn war no
more. This is not the last World's Fair.
Great preparations are now mnking for a fair
that shall be superior to the London nnd
New York Fairs in completeness, to be held
in Paris in 1853, and it is to be hoped that

Webb's Normal Series.
Numbrrs on, two, thr aud four or thi irrie
uf Ron der ' have btn laid on our table, by the
gentlemanly agent, Mr. A. W. Price, of Cleve
land. In th primary numberi of this teiiet, we
notice a new, and we think, an excellent feature.
At the brad of each re&riin; lesion, i placfd in
columns, all tho words that occur in the ltion;
which the pupil it required to spoil until tho or.
Ihogrnphy of each word is thoroughly learnad.
Tbt pupil is also rcquirtd to pronounce and to
enunciate, correctly and distinctly at light, and
without hesitation, each word, before proceeding
to read. This, we think, it on admirable ar
rangement: and must, in a great measure, if not
wholly obviate the ruinous articulation which
some children acquire by drawling out one Kurd
before making up their minds whattocall the next.
In the preface to number two occurt the follow-
in K truihiul paragraph: J hit volume commences
with a tnble of the eir.mentary toimdi and the
inaiks of puuetuatloa, in which to many of our
scholart fail .
The selection of pieces we think judicious.
tliough perhaps not superior to many other series
now in use. The introduction of music it also a
new feature, nnd will, wa think, be pronounced a
vary detirable one, by all wbo love cheerful iacet
and barmonidus sounds.
Tuere are tome tix or eight cbartt designed to
precede the Readers, which we do not hesitate to
saj, ought to be in every school room. We have
not time nor space to describe them. We were
presented with several other new and valuable
books, which we will notice at another time.
For the Blade.
I well reccollect tbat when I was a young
lad, one of my neighbors had a bell-weather,
that took the lead in all marauding excursions
and moet of the flock followed him wherever
he went, over fences, through hedges, thick
ets and briers, until many of the sheep lost
the most ol their fleeces. At length the more
prudent part of the flock, concluded that they
would follow bim no longer and it ts well
they did, for one day the old fellow thought
lbs feed was a little better on the oilier side
of the fence, and leaped over, followed by
about one half the fl jek. It so happened that
there was an old well where he went over,
into which he plunged headforemost to the
bottom, Mlgwed by bis Hunker associates,
when they were drowned. This was the end
of the old bell-weather, and those unruly
sheep who continued to follow their unprinci
pled leader after having been warned of the
consequences that would result from such
evd conduct. This is precisely the case with
the old Hunker Democrats of this Senatorial
and Representative Dutrict . They have fol
lowed Sleedroan, Morton, Comuiager Sz Co.,
unlit they have lost their political standing
and reputation ; and will find themselves on
the 8d of October, at tbe bottom of tbe well,
with Hon. would ba Lieut Governor, James
Myers, cursing tba Cold Water, as well ai the
Temperance men, and Free Soilers, for scar
ing theaa out of tbe field and over the fenee,
to their own destruction.- If there ara any
Democrat tbat wish to avoid tbe . well, they
must turn from their corrupt, unprincipled
reaaers,aoa follow tnem bo longer. A word
to tba wise is sufficient

For the Journal.
Dr. Kit HARD ALCOIIOL,
Physician, Surgoon and Dentist, would re
spectfully inform the citizens of this place and
vicinity, that ha bus located himself in the
most central part of the town, where be will
attend to all tba opperations, prescriptions
and dutieaof the several branches of the med
ical profession. As his habits of study and
reflection are aomewhat proverbial, and hi a
opportunities for observation have been nu
merous, he flatters himself, that by fidelity to
nis friends and punctuality to business, lie
snail merit a luree sliaie of Publie nstronaire.
He would call the attention of the publio to
a medicine, (he discovery of which has cost
him much time and money. Naiurii Infal
lible Compound Matchless Sanative.
Although the qualities and benefit of this
valuable medicine are extensively known, II
may not be amiss to explain its nature, and
give directions tor its uso.
The most esseniiul article is spirit; and as
spirit ts one ot the component parts Ct man,
and a most important one, any one may see
tbat tho Sanative must take a hi trli stand
above all other medical preparations. Injpro
portion as you takeaway a man's spirit, in the
samo proportion do you sink him in the scale,
ot human existence. And according as you
add to a man's spirit so does he arise in activ
ity, loquacity nnd independence, three of the
most essential qualities of mankind.
I he Matchless Sanative destroys tho dis
tinctions between the sick and the poor; dis
pels gloom and melancholy, and ia an ellect
ual antidote for religion, bigotry and, toleration
and sectarianism. It is pood for all the com
plaints common to human life, and may be
taken' without the sail consequences which so
frequently follow tho use of most other medi
cines. Una ol its greatest benrtits may DC
seen iif'lhe effectual c heck it puts to that spir
it of false refinement and learning so preva
lent in this age ot madness nnd supeisttlion.
Take a class immediately ft'ter rising in the'
morning and just before each meal. Carry a
bottle with yvu into the fie'd, shop or store, ns
the case may be, and drink as often as na
ture solicits. It ia a good plan for neighbors
and friends to meet together Saturday nfter
ncK.ns nnd Sundays (when it can be done with
out breach of this day,) nnd drink a few bot
tles in token of their friendship. It keeps up
an acquaintance, makes them sociable, and
puis money into tbe hands of the inn-keep
For children take half a glass of the Sana
tive and as much water, sweeten it well with
sugar, and sprinkle it with a little nutmeg,
and the aversion they have to it will soon be
overcome. Parents who have faithfully fol
lowed these directions, have found in a short
time, to their infinite satisfaction that their
children, instead of loathing the Sanative,
have an appetite for it so strong ns to breuk
over the bound of parental restraint and urge
them to the commission of the heineous crime
of parental disobedience
All persons are cautioned against the wick
ed practice of using cold water in the small
est quantity, unless it is well tempered with
the Matchless Sanative. It would be well to
avoid listening to the infamatory harangues
and speeches of a certain fanatical sect called
temperance people. They ore an injury to
the country and wise above what is written.
This may certify that I, Cnpt Peter Cork
drawer, of Starvation corner, arose the morn
ing after training, wiih painful swollen eyes,
extreme dizziness in my head, and complete
prostration of my mental and physical powers.
.My appetite had left me, and my military
spirit tor which I nm so much celebrated, was
gone, and 1 almost wished myaelt banished to
botany Bay. Four bottles of Dr. Alcohol's
Sanative made me fuel very comfortable, so
by next day 1 was myscll again.
This may certify that I, Simon Dottleholdur
of Poverty Hollow, in reluming home from a
corn husking ubout 2 o'clock in the morning
fell into a ditch hall tilled with water, from
which I was unable to get out until next morn
ing, aud caught a severe cold which laid me
up lor a month, during that time 1 drank fiee
lv of the Malchlei Sanative with much ben
elit. II iving spent three thousand dollars
for the article I can cheerfully recommend it
lo my fellow beings as a medicine well catcu
laled to tiive freedom lo the spirits, indepen
dence to the mind, and a beautiful red colour
to the countenance.
This may certify that I, Icabod Love-liquor
of Whirlwind point, came borne about mid
night from a horce-race, with extreme sickness
at my stomach and such a terrible dizziness
that I could not wnlk without falling every
moment' My wife poor woman, waa up wait
ing for my return with much anxiety, as was
evident from her tears and soirow stricken
countenance. Four glasses of the Mulckltt
Sanative produced active vomiting and put
me into a refreshing sleep Irom n uich i did
not WAlto till npvt dnv.
This certifies that f, Obidiah Ilard-drinkcr
of Lazy Plains, bad a son who, notwithstand
ing the admonitions of his parents, was addic
ted to the foolish practice of attending the
meetings of those fanatics called C urislains and
waa so sullen and serious that I began to dis-
pair ot his ever rising in the world, or being
anything but a pest to big friends and a curse
to society, J hree bottles of Katuret Infidh-
Lie Compound Matchless Sanative infused
some spirit into him, and he now attends
without any advice all tho horse races, thea
tres, trainings and scrapes; much In the joy
of his parents and the satisfaction of a large
circle of friends and relations.
Stobt or Curban. T was much amused

myself and many others were in company.
The doctor delighted in telling of tbe success

How beautiful, How true.
This brief but beautiful passage occurs in a
late article in Frazier's Magazine:
' "Education doea not commence with tbe
alphabet. It begins with a mother's looks
with a father's nod of approbation or a siirn
reproof with a sister's gentle pressure of
the hand, or a brother e noble act of forbear
ancewith handfuls of flowers in green and
diisy meadow with bird's nests admired but
not touched with creeping ants, and almost
imperceptible eminets with humming bees
and glass beehives-with pleasant walks in
shady lanea and with, thoughts directed in
sweet and kindly tones, and worda to mature
acts of benevolence, to deeds of virtu, and
the aenae of all good, to God himself."
