the republic Into a practical despotism.
Applause. They have deposed govern

authority. Applause. They are the
patrons of protection, and have passed
laws diseriuiuting in favor ot particular
classes and pursuits to the injury and
prejudice ol the other classes. They have
embarrassed the currency of the country

An onerous public debt is grinding the

vidciices, and only .sotue of the evi
dences of the mala luiini.-trution o the
party in power. More than that, gentle
men', malversation in otlice have not
stopped with sulardinatcri in public

jierccption ol the necessities ot our time,

beyond all peradveidure we will transmit

extremes ot the body politic aud energy
to all its members, except that corruption
w hich is the curse ot centralism aud has
never failed, in any age or coun

corruption have Imposed upon tbe

have delianebitl the federal government
itself, and made tbe names of scores of
its high otliecrs and public men a public
scandal and a public shame. The record
is horrible Incapacity, venality, waste
and fraud. It has been powerless; to
tread and trample under foot the cor
ruptionisls ; with stupendous effrontery
it pledged itself to a reform of which it
has become incapable. Although the
party pledged Itself to restore specie pay
ments, every year it takes us further
from specie payments. So it pledged
Itself to civil-eervice reform and then
mocked its own relorms. It so pledged
itself to protect American labor,
"d with Its Mafisaehusetu custom-house
taxing 00 over three hundred articles, it
has impoverished a merica. A few score
inonoiHiiists, n fvw thousand eorruption
Ists have been enriched, but capital in
the bauds of those that earned it by in
dustry and saved it by lrii"al
ity is everywhere Uistrii-tlul, and rusts
unused, while honest labor k Uui

From his father Mr. Tilden inherited a
taste for political impi'ipcs, and from hi
youth, be look an aelive interest in
political questions from time to time
agitating the public mind, nnd in
In anticipation and preparation for
the election which resumed in making
James K. Polk president and Silas
Wright governor of the State ot New
York, Mr. Tilden, in connection with
John L. O'Sullivan, founded the newspa
per called the daily .Yen,.
In the fall ol ISI'i he was sent to the As

the governor iu a special message invited
the attention of tho legislature to the
mismanagement of the canals.
The legislature, though containing in
both branches manv of the most notori
ous canal jobbers, and constituted largely
in that interest, was obliged to yield to
tbe irresistible public sentiment which
the governor's policy and message had
awakeued, and granted him the author

tion. Tbe results ot the investigations,
communicated to him lroiu time

the system of fraudulent expenditure ou
the canals which lie had denounced at the
bar of publio opinion.
Through the adoption of various other
flnauclal measures upon his recommen

exercise ol the veto power, the governor

Kugliab recipe, aud now iu daily use by
tnany of tho inot noted farmer, in the

Iu hot weather this l'owder makes butter
much firmer and sweeter than it usually is,
aud keeps it liom turning rancid. It also
remove the atrong flavor of turnipa, em-tic,
weeds, cm atalks, cotton aoetl, etc.: nnd
the iucreaned yield of butter much more
than pays the t'rii'io expense of u.sin it.
