THE ELJXTIONOF PRINTER TO THE SENATE.
We have alreadyT)ul?lished a:brief jwragrapli, an
noundnp the election of JJevcrly Titckerot the ns7i
j'ny'oH Sentinel, as Plater to the Senate, over Gen.
Armstrong. Uuclxr received the votes of ail tho
whigs, except the two 'Senators from Tennessee,
and of nine democratic " hard?." Col. Bell voted
for ARM-TROXO('and Gor-Joned for Gales & Seaton
The four abolition whig Senator?, Chase, Wade, &
ward and Sumner, voted for Tucker, -viththerestof
the whig. Twelve democratic Senators did not vote.
The democratic Senators voting lor .Tucker are un
derstood to be Messrs. Atchison, t of Missouri!
Bright, of Indiana; 12 vans, of joyth Carolina;
ITunler and Mason, of Virginia; Weller, of Cali
fornia; Wright of New Jersey; Broadhead, of Penn
sylvania, and one otii0&ot mentioned.
The wretched hypocrisy of the very " hard" gen
tlemen who find fkult'Vrith the administration for
not giving them alt the offices and who profess bo
great a liorror for " frec-joilers" is well illustrated
by this vote. We see these "hard" Senators-voting
with all tho abolition Senators against the Wash
ington UiiioA.' Now' if these "hards" really have
the cauSe of complaint against the Washington
Union which they allege, how "happens it that
Seward and his followers don't vote for tho Union?
Is it likely that the abolition squad of the Senate,
would have united with southern "compromise"
whigs and " hard" democrats to defeat the organ
of an administrations which was favoring their
friends? i . iit(.t,o
Too fact' is,-these'abolftlo'n leaders are tho shrewd
est taoticians.in the country. They "know -that
the end of agitation is -their own political end also.
i They see the administration laboring to give quiet
to the country. That quiet they have no wish to
Bee restored. They give their votes, therefore, to
buslain a " hard" organ, as tho most- elTectual way
to thwart the labors of the administration. South
ern whigs are working in the same cause, in the
hope that, if the excitement ton be got up high
enough, they may have a chance to save the Union ;
an operation which they think may pay about once
in four years
As for thc- very "hard" democratic Senators,
who have S3 oftectually aided the abolition excitement-mongers,
the democratic masses will very
effectually brand them. "Hard" as may be their
principle, they will come in contact with some
thing still harder when they attempt to justify their
conduct before the democratic people. That peo
ple may not- care two straws who b:is a job to exc
aite eertain -public printing, but an alliance with
' abolitiiuiisis and whigs to build up an organ to war
npun a democratic administrations which is faith
fully carrying out the great principles of the party
will meet with a deserved rebuke wherever selfish
Miuliilion is subservient to political fidelity.
UTe find the following dignified article on the
subject iti die Washington Union of the 13th:
Public 1'bistkr to to: Senate. By reference
.to the proceedings in the Senate on yesterday, it
will be seen that Beverly Tucker, Esq., the propri
etor of the Washington S'nttneJ, was elected prin
ter to theSenalc. Air. Tucker received twenty-six
votes, and Gen. Armstrong seventeen. On behalf
of Gen. Armstrong, wo tender to his friends in the
Senate hi-j warmest irratitudc for the confidence ex
pressed in Lim by titeir votes. Whilst ho has re
gret at the disclosure of the fact that he has not
secured the confidence of all the democratic sena
tors, he has no personal complaints to utter against
the course which their feelings have dictated. He
freely concedes to every senator perfect freedom to
follow his owu impulses, and, in his turn, he claims
the same right The Union has stood faithfully by
tho present democratic administration, and the fail
ure of a democratic Senate to make its proprietor
the printer of that body will produce no other
change in our course than to incite us to renewed
nnd increased efforts to maintain the ascendency of
!emoeratic principles by sustaining a democratic
julmmialration. We have no reason to believe that
the democratic senators who united with the whigs
and abolitionists to defeat Genera' Armstrong were
actuated by personal opposition to him: nor have
we any reason to suppose tbat it was the result of
personal objections to the editor of Uie union. We
are forced to regard their course as dictated by po
litical consideration-; and as our support of the ad
ministration has been constant, earnest, and zealous,
we can attribute it to no other motive than opposi
tion to the policy of the administration. Having
heretofore sustained that policy against all assaults,
whether from whigs, abolitiouisL, or factious dem
ocrats, we shall neither abate our zeal nor modify
our energies under the present circumstances. We
know that the President stands immovably upon
his policy, and that he will not be driven from its
faithful execution by any combination or coalition
that may be formed, however formidable it may
seem to be. He looks to the approval of his coun
trymen with a confidence tbat never wavers; and the
people in their sovereign capacity have never failed
to sustain the President who leans upon them for
The popularity of the Governor of Tennessee
with the democratic people of other States is shown
by tho frequent mention of his name in connection
with the next Presidency. It is of course tooearly
seriously to agitate the question of the succession
at present; and we refer to these notices, not as
ourselvea'parllcipating in such discussion, but to
show that the affectionate pride with which Gov.
JonnsoM's personal character and talents are cher
ished in Tennessee is shared by their democratic
brethren of other States.
With this view, also, we copy the following from
the Sandusky (Ohio) Daily Mirror, one of whose
editors served in Congress with Gov. JonxsoK:
Thk PnfcsinKccr is 183G. A writer iu the Dela
ware State I&porter suggests Hon. Andrew John
son, Democrat, lately elected Governor of Ten
nessee, as n candidate for the next Presidency.
That idea is sensible and patriotic. Gov. John
son of Tennessee is inferior in capacity for the
Presidency to no man living, no ha3 the talents,
abilities, tire. firmness, integrity and industry, to fill
that most important station with honor to himself
and entire satisfaction to those who may trust him
with power. Tu short, he is tho man of and for
tho people. Wc have the honor of a personal ac-quaintani-e
with him, and consider him a good and
truly great man.
Gov. Johnson was born in Raleigh, North Caro
lina, where he served an apprenticeship and learn
ed the tailor trade. His father died while he was
quite young, leaving Andrew poor and without
education. When free from his apprenticeship,
about twenty-tive ycarsago he moved to Tennessee
where he worked at his trade and educated himself
Tho interest lie took in measures in behalfor the la
boring jieoplc, sooncnlled him out as a candidate
for the State Legislature. He was elected, re-elected,
and then called out as a candidate lor tho House
of Congress to which he was elected four times in
succession. Lat March his term expired He de
clined another election. He was then nominated
by the Democratic State Convention for Governor,
almost unanimously, and was elected by a large ma
jority. Although he has ever been a consistent
straight-forward Democrat, the party lines never
could be drawn against him. No matter how
large a whig majority was in his district, ho was al
ways successful So it was in his canvass for Gov
ernor. Tennessee had, the preceding November,
given her electoral vote to Gen. Scott one of the
Jour States that did yet Andrew Johnson was
elected; this, too, over one of the most talented
Whigs; and. whig stumpers in the State. Such were
Johnson's positions and soundness of arguments
drawn therefrom, that he carried the peoplo with
him, in spite of the jtWiei of wit and cunning de
vices of his ingenuous opponent, Maj. Henry. They

furnished with the two first volumes, by Messrs.

Messrs. Putxam & Co., New York, aiyi are execu

would be very extravagant in saying that, the cas-d
ket is worthy of the jewels it contains jewels of
thought and style the most precious m the .English
tongue. It is in such a style that the writings of
the great Essayist should bo presenfed to.thcyworld.
The two volumes before us contain Mr. Addison's
"Poems and Dramas" and hi3 "Miscellaneous Prose."
The first of these beads comprises his translations
from Virgil and Ovid; The Campaign; his Miscella
neous Pocms;his Dramcs ofRc a imoiid.The Drummer
and Cato; and his Latin Poems. The second head
contains his Dialogues on Medak; Travels; Essay
on Virgil's Georgios; Discourse on Ancient and Mod
ern Learning; Of the Christian Iieligion; Letters,
and Political Writings. Many of these are among
tho most graceful of Addison's writings. THq entire
five volumes will contain all of Addison s contnbti
tions to the "Tatler," "Guardian" and "Spectator,'
and indeed all the productions of his prolific genius.
The contributions of Pope, Steele, TickelL and oth
ers, to the celebrated periodicals just named, will
bo given separately, in two uniform volumes, thns
forming a complete edition of the most exquisite
productions in the English tongue.
We liavo given this summary that tho reader may
see the complete character of this edition of Ad
Disos'a writings. Of these writings themselves wp
have not the presumption tb offer a-word Of -eulogy.'
Addiso-Y is the great high pnest of English Prose,
and we should as soon think of offering a criticism
upon the immortal creations of Shakespeare.as upon
those exquisite productions which have made the
"Tatler," the "Guardian" and the "Spectator," the
delight of their own and all succeeding generations.
If the reader wishes to read a criticism upon Addi
son's life and writings, we refer him to the elaborate
essay of Macauley himself, with tho exception of
our own IlEsrtr Giles, the most brilliant of living
writers. In that essay Addi30X is justly character
ised as "Uie unsullied statesman, the accomplished
scholar, the master of pure English eloquence, tho
consummate painter of life and manners" as "tho
i great satirist, who alouo knew how to use ridicule
without abusing it, who, withoutinflicting a wound,
effected a social-reform, and who leoonoiled wit
and virtue, after a long- and disastrous reparation,
during which art had been led astray by profligacy,
and virtue by fanaticism."

FURTHER PARTICTJLA'RS OF THE FIRE IN NEW
At the burning of the establishment of the Messrs.
Haiper, on Saturday, large numbers of girls escaped
safely from tho upper stories to the ground by means
of ladders some in the arms of firemen, and some
unaided. One (Miss Elizabeth Totten, aged 1C
years) leaped from an upper window, not impelled
by fnght, but by the pressure of the fire, and dislo
cated her thigh upward and backward. Another
young lady, Miss Adelia Cox, aged 15 years, was
missed for several hours, but, working her way
through the crowd, was found safe at homo at night
The buildings of the Harpers', some twelve in num
ber, were not all that were burned. Two houses
of Geo. E. Coolidge & Brother the very old school
book publishers the wholesale drug store of W.
W. Thayer, the once famous as a miiision, then as
a hotel, now as an emigrant boarding house; the
old "ftalton house; and the Franklin Square Hotel,
on the opposite side of Pearl street, were also burned
down. In revolutionary times the Walton House
was the head-quarters, first, of the British Gover
nor, Sir Henry Clinton, and, afterwards, it was the
temporary residence of General Washington.
The stereotype plates of the Harpers and they ,
of course keep stereotypes of all their works arc"
kept in vaults under tho streets, so that most of
them all that were not on some oi their lorty
presses, or cither just off t)r to goon are safe.
The January number of their Magazine was al
most ready to be issued. It is said that they are
accustomed to take three sets of stereotypes of
each number, and that this is necessary to enable
them to work it off in time for the day of issue.
If so, the subscribers may well doubt whethfcrihey"
will got the New Year's number punctually. The
various losses and insurance are as follows:
Harper & Brothers,
Coolidge it Brother,
J. K. Huppcl,
Wm. W. Thayer,
Noyland it Williams,
Losses of others.
Among many new books which were consumed,
is "Dr. Kane's History of his Arctic Explorations,"
a large octavo profusely illustrated with engravings,
which had been ready for some days, but was kept
back until a larger supply could be secured. Wo
believe that Henry Grinuell, Esq., had received a
copy of the work, so that it will not have to be re
written as well as re-issncd. The insurance of the
Harpers was effected in a great number of compa
nies, only one company having over $5,000. That
one is an English company, which has an agency in
Boston. By this fire about 1,000 hands are thrown
out of work.
The Tribune says that most of the stereotype
plates of the Harpers, to the value of about four
hundred 1housaid dollars, were fortunately stored
in fire proof vaults beneath the street, and are con
sequently saved. Plates to the value of about 10,
000, as nearly as can be judged, were in different
parts of the building, and arc lost The last sheets
of Harper for December had just been put to press,
and the whole are gone; the Pictorial Bible, another
publication of importance, is wholly destroyed, be
sides others too numerous to mention.
The HeralTs account states that the plates of the
Blustrated Bible were saved.
We observe, also, that the Herald sets down the
entire loss of Coolidf-c it Brother at 200,000, in
sured 100,000. The Messrs. Coolidge have for
many years been the publishers of the elementary
spelling books, so extensively used in the schools
throughout the United States. They also did a
heavy business as bookbinders, and in the manufac
turing of blank books. Their house is known as
one of the most rcspectablo publishing establish
ments in New York.
The Messrs. Harpers, announce in a card that the
sheets and plates of their Monthly Magazine having
been destroyed, a delay of "a few days will una
voidably occur in the delivery of the January num
ber to agents and subscribers."

man from Scott County, Ky., who, for Mm uvuilur, suffer
ed greatly from a chronic disease of the stomach and bowels,
which could not be removed by the most ,ifjroml prattler,
respected and continued as it was for the Deetor't tale.
He had paid his Doctor's Bill, without any calculation of
making another, thnkingit was of no use; and no one ex
pressed any hope of his recovery except a stranger, who
happened to pass that way, and advised him to a different
course of treatment, which hxs this recommendation, that
in fire vetls time it has made him feel like engaging in

Dr. Morse' luvigornting Elixir or Cordial.
Tbe day has passed when a great remedy could be cried
down by psendo-science. The attempt lias been made to
depreciate the merits of the Elixir or Cordial, but in vain
Dr. Morse has a reputation too high in the scientific world
of both hemispheres to be reached by the carpings of the
invidious. Look at the attested cures wrought b this pre
paration. They comprehend dyspepsia, barrenness, every
kind of disease peculiar to females, nervous maladies ofal!
kinds, liver complaint, chronic afflictions of the stomach
and bowels, general prostration, impotency, incipient para
lysis, hypochondrias'?, head-ache, constipation, and innu
merable complaints which it is impossible tospecify in an
advertisement. Facts are impregnable, and they are offei--ed
in answer to all who doubt the properties of this lead
ing medicine of tbe nineteenth ccntnry.
The Cordial is put up, highly concentrated, in pint hot
