U5y Read the correspondence between
Buchanan and Douglas and learn, if you
don't already know It, that flie Govern
ment of the U. States Lai become a mere
amortioner of the spoils - sewarder of
partisans. It used te be- disgraceful in
an individual to mate office th considera
tion for his sup-pert of measures; but
sovreign State sow bow at the foot stool
of federal power and Jitimbly petition for
a share of toe plunder 'as the reward cf
their devotion to party. Consolidation
must follow this fawning of tbje States npoa
the federal Executive. .
. K5T Tho conMaaajity was justly surpris
ed at the stupoasie of the Bank of Ten
ncssee, las week, because that institution
took occasion to apprise the public that,
having the means to redeem its issues, it
woold not be forced to suspend. Not only
did it make this boast, but, by implication,
would have cast discredit upon banks that
aro entirely solvent, and have held out
after the suspension of that boasting in
stitution which volunteered the dectara
tion that it would never do that which it
was the first to do. 1 he boast was ex
cessively foolish, and the covert stroke at
other banks, was as ungenerous as it was
t&'tn commending the bill of Mr.
Maney, last week, we thought as we ia
tended -that our commendation embraced
the amendment to the bill, providing that
State aid should be extended to all the
companies that have gone earnestly to work
under the Internal Improvement law.
"Without this proviso, the bill would work
great injustice to companies that have ex
pended much money in the effort to make
such progress as would make clear their
claim to State aid. But where no work
baa been done, the ease is different; and a
due regard to the credit of the State, de
mands that its credit shall be no further
pressed than it is already, by the actual
and proximate compliance with the con
ditions of the Internal Improvement Bill.
The people of Tennessee have voted against
the distribution of the proceeds of the
publio lands, and having no hope cf aid
from this sourco an aid extended to new
free States, Tennessee must be prudent
in the management of its resources; and
we fear that much which ought to be done,
must be loft undone.
Sfy It seems that the Americans, of
Ohio, aro helping the democrats to beat
Chase, and some are disposed to commend
them for it. For our own part, we con
sider the democrats a more dangerous par
ty to the South than the Black Republi
cans. The latter show their hand, and
proclaim thoir object ; but tho former do
tho work of freesoilors under the false guise
of friends to the South. A pretended
friend is more to be feared than an avow
ed enemy. This is the difference between
those two parties, and, as an American,
we would not cast tho bnllanoe in favor of
either. If the Union is to te sundered, it
had better be done before the strength of
the South is frittered away by tho spoils
loving democracy. Every year, some
right is surrendered, or com
t3J Some of the Eastern papors give
gloomy accounts of tho prospects of tho
laboring classes, thousands upon thousands
of whom are out of employment. Yet
these same victims of loeofoco policy still
cry out "reduco tho tariff, and encourago
tho importation of more foreign laborers"
to reduco tho wages, and take the bread
out of tho mouths of native citizons. If
thoy suffer, thoy deserve thoir fate. The
pliant tools of demagogues, they spurn
those who would protect their interests,
and elevate to power tho greedy spoils
seekers, who pay for their ulevution with
unmeaning compliments, to tho dear peo
ple whom, in truth, they contemn as empty
headed fools. The roduetion of tho tariff
closes our work-shops, and the advent of
every foreign laborer swells competition
and reduces wages; yet the dear people
advocate both, and reap poverty as their

Ther is something wrong In any' sys
tem which makes the interests of the gov
eminent distinct from those of the people,
and in a government claiming to be demo
cratic, such distinction is peculiarly odious.
The subtreasury is a case in point, being
a financial system which establishes a cur
rency for the government purely motalic,
whilst the people - are compelled to use a
paper currency liable to continual fluctu
ations and possessing a value more local
than general, and often subjecting the
whole commerce of the country to heavy
losses. Not only does the system work
injuriously, by requiring the government
debtor to pay in a currency not demanded
in the business transactions between man
and man, but by -withdrawing from com;
merce an immense amount of specie that
ought to go to giving value to the paper
currency of the States. .
Under the operation of the U. S. Bank,
the government had no use for specie no
distinction was made between the govern
ment and the people all the dues to the
former were paid in the currency used by
the latter, and the specie, instead of being
hoarded, was diffused through the country,
giving security to, and equalizing the val
ue of, the paper currency, without which
the commerce of the country can not
flourish. At this moment when the banks
are suspending, the government is buying
up its own paper at an enormous premi
um, in order to throw back' its hoarded
specie into the channel of trade to relieve
the monetary pressue it has helped to bring
about. This fact itself proves the error
of the subtreasury policy, and conveys an
idea of its tendency to centralise power
in the federal government. It is a U.
Bank with all. the objectionable features
of its predecessor, but without one of its
redeeming traits. ' ' '
Gen. Jackson, in bis intense American
ism, discovered tnat tno U. . Uanfc was
dangerous institution, because foreigner
held stock in the same, and through the
agency of that stock might subvert the
liberties of the people. "That can no Ion
gcr be an objection, with the democrats, to
its re-establishment, and we do hope they
will seriously take the subject into eonsid
eration, and give to the country an insti
tution that ean regulate the currency and
equalize exchange. Tho experience of
1837, and the present crisis prove the ne
cessity for such an institution; and if
Congress have power to establish a govern
ment Bank under the title of Subtreasu
ry, it ean establish a Bank with a different
name and with widoly different influences
upon the commercial prosperity of the
JQT Why is it that we hear no loeofoco
boasting, at this time, of the unrivalled
prosperity of the country, under the
domination of that party? Are they be
coming modest, or are they ashamed of a
policy that has induced the present state
of things? It will not do for them to try
to shirk the responsibility of our troubles.
They have long ruled the federal and
State governments, and have been warned,
unceasingly, of the consequences of their
misrule. But the only answer has been
"look at the glorious prosperity of the
country, and infer from it the wisdom of
loeofoco policy." Well, that polioy has
not been changed, then whence the mone
tary wreck of to-day ? We ask the people,
who arm the demagogue with power to
strike down their prosperity, to look at
this question, and, if they dare, to answer
it as honest freemen. We ask them to
look back upon all the periods of distress
that have come upon the country, since
the organization of the spoils-party, and
say whether they have not all been the
legitimate result of its misdeeds. That
policy must be wrong which leads to evil,
and that party is a curse, which adheres
to suoh a policy. Let the people look
the question in tho face. They are the
source of power; if that power work mis
chiof, they are the guilty parties. If they
are too corrupt to do right, or too ignorant
to know the right, they had better resign
their power and fall back upon a monarchy,
which is preferable to anarchy. And that
they are too corrupt, or too ignorant to
take care of themselves, is but too mani
fest. ftST We are authorised to state that the

The Hoa Market. We copy the follow
ing from the Cincinnati Price Current:
Tha feeling in the market for bogs for
November delivery continues very unset
tled, there being lew buyers at any price,
and several sellers. Some contracts have
been made within the last two weeks at $6
cwt net, November delivery, but we be
lieve there are no buyers at this price now.
The unsettled state and great uncertainty
aa regards the futureof financial matters,
deters the packers from making any eon-
tracts, and leada to a disposition on their
part to hold off for the purpose of being
able to witness nnembarrassed the result
of this financial crisis. The corn crop is
now matured and may be considered the
best in quality, and the largest in quantity
ever raised in the country, by, say twenty
five per cent., and the indications are quite
conclusive that it will rule at extraordina
ry low prices, thus rendering the feeding
of it to hogs, even though they should rule
at f t 50$ cwt. net, the most profitable dis
position which can be made of it, and this
must lead to a large supply of pork.

UNDERGROUND RAILROADS RE-
; TURN TRAINS..
, ... -
It seems that the return trains of the
Underground Railroad are doing quite a
heavy business at the present time. .The
Cleveland plindcaler states that every
steamboat arriving at that place brings!
back from Canada families of negroes, who
heretofore fled to the Provinces from the
States, ' They are, It is said, principally
from Canada West ; and they describe the
life and condition of the blacks in Canada
as miserable In the extreme. Upon these
facts, the Journal of Commerce has the
following remarks : . H .
The West is therefore likely to have
large accessions to its colored population,
and It is not at all improbable that Black
Republicanism and Abolitionism will di
minish, in consequence, in proportion as
the negroes increase. The Canada folks
do not want them, and have shown a dis
position ia their Parliament, and other
wise, .to discourage their coming to or re
maining in the Provinces. Ia some in
stances the question of ejecting those new
resident there has been discussed. Oar
Western States will be likely to experience
a similar attack of the llack vomito, whoa
they shall hare become satisfied with this
peculiar 8outhera luxury. In some lo
calities the superabundant free negro pop
ulation has already beoome a burden, while
in others they are under severe restrictions
which amount almost to an exclusion from
the limits of the 8tate. - - '
Should this exodus from Canada con
tinue to any great extent, it would throw
such a burden upon those States which
hare adopted the most liberal polioy to
ward the negro, that it would occasion a
reaction in the publio sentiment which
would compel them to abandon their abo
lition doctrine and practice, for their own
self-protection, We should then hear of
fewer attempts to abduot slaves from the
slaveholding States; stock In the under
ground railroad woald become .worthless,
and Abolitionists would be content to al
low slaves to remain ander tho care and
protection of their masters. Even though
at heart sympathising with the oppressed
and task-worn negro,' and yearning to
wards him with all the love of the pro
fessed philanthropist, he would still be
permitted to toil and bleed ; for now that
the route to Canada has been closed, there
is no alternative bat to take them to their
own bosoms ; and this they will not do for
love no, not for money I
Thus, in one way at least, the country
may, and possibly will, bo rid of the po
litical plague-spot which has disgraced it,
and preyed upon its vitals for so long a
timo. The disease- is one of that kind
which, in time, will cure itself."

similar preparations. It has but recently
been introduced to the public, but has long
been successfully used in private practice,
and was throughly tested and approved by
the late Dr. Kane, on the Grinnell Arctic
Expedition. Dr. Bracki has for years
enjoyed a well earned and widely extended
reputation for his medical preparations,
which is a sufficient guaranty of the
