sequent confl aeration, because its building are'
generally combustible, and erected withoufany
reference to such a contingency.
A late issue of the London Timet hn a char
acteristic article on the present condition ..f
Ireland : contrasting very strikingly the reali
ty with what two years since was very boldly
prophesied. The writer allndes to what awhile
back was daily proclaimed, ''England's peril
la Ireland's opportunity" when it was conn
dently foretold that the people of IreUnd. so
soon ai a foreign war should draw off the En
glish garrisons from the island, would rise in
their might and drive out their oppressors.
The Timet says the crisis, so ardently desired,
arrived, when of the 30,000 government forces
stationed in Ireland not a thousand were left
yet with its advent there came no Irih insur
rection, and Strang t still, no agitation in favor
of an insurrection. No doubt, (says the Times,)
wa shall be told that we have made a solitude,
and then call it peace. Hut Ireland is not
quite suce a solitude as that. There are still
some seven millions or so in the island, and
' they stand a good deal thicker than in mant
highly favored and populous parts of the con
tinent. Were there absolute exhaustion that
-would tall against us, as well as for us, and the
recruiting parties would find sheep and oxen,
not men. But that it not the case. Ireland
lias contributed her proportion of soldiers
There is no desert in that resjtect. Ireland
only no longer swells the ranks or fills the
purse of the agitator. To him the land is bar
ren from Dan even to Beershrbt. Military
spirit is a plaut of every soil. Everywhere
one feeling or another sends youth to arms;
ambition, enterprise, disappointment, disgrace,
idleness a hundred motives, good and bad,
fill the ranks destined for the Crimea, or
wherever the tide of war may lead ; but they
have given birth to no Irish Brigade; they
have not taken the form of "United Irishmen;"
they have not clung to the recollections of '18.
- No where has the war excited more interest
than in Ireland. Not a single Irish journal
- tut boa singled out the Crimean heroes from
' that isle, and taken an honorable pride in the
' circumstances that the historian of the war is
an Irishman, with all the genius, the vior,
and the poetry of Lis countrymen. Ireland
"has availed herself of the opKirtnnity to ex
tract her share of honor out of the war, and,
at It happens, more than her share of its pro
fits. She has supplied the greater part of the
beef and pork required for the army and navy,
and the demand lias enriched her armers and
graziers. No country ever made so great a
, atart in two hort years. The benefit to Eng
land is tliat Ireland has ceased to he a burden,
an anxiety, aud a scandal. We find, to our
surprise and pleasure that we do not require
to hold the island in military occupation, or
reoonquer it every year. We have riot to
maintain there as Urge a force as that we sent
to the Crimea. 8o much has the result of
"Ireland's opportunity1 opened our eyes, that
it is now shrewdly sosjcted the !ico force
is excessive. When it was lately MigtteMd to

for the landlords, the agent, the eoinriiks,
and the cat:le left behind. No Irishman
would be SJ base as to tale that advantage of
the absence of the polio on o glorious an er

fort and aparanoes, on the uieivxt military
calculation Ireland is a better ally than she
was a dozen years ago. True, she then con
tributed more men to the army, but then she
kept 30,000 of them at home. The difference
that we are concerned with, and the difference
at the disposal of our War Minister for the

" Tle Voted fertile Platform)
'' We hadihe pleasure of laying! before
the readers of tlie Tatriot, Saturday,; a lei
egraphic synopsis of the' platform adopted
by the National American Council on the
21st, last., furnished ns by Gen. Zoujcof
rER. The following despatch will inform
them by whose votes the plalfonn was
" MPntLADtjniA, Feb. 23, 1850.
" W. Hr. Smith : The Platform was adopt
ed by Southern and Northern National votes,
with few exceptions. F. K. Z."
This rote satisfies us that our construc
tion of the platform is correct. It not onl,
does not " ignore the slavery question," but
goes a step in advance even of the lihh
section of the platform of 1855, and takes
a position on the slavery question, as
"sound as virgin gold." Our neighbor of
the Danntr, haviug quoted our construc
tion, comments thereon as follows :
If that be the true construction of the
platform that is to say, if the platform is to
be understood as asserting that "Southern men
have the right to remove into the territories
with their slaves, aud, under the Federal Con
stitution, are entitled to protection in their
rights of property in slaves1' arid "that the
people of the territories have no authority,
under the Federal Constitution, to legislate
non the subject of slavery, except to protect
slave property; but have power, in the organi
zation of a State Government, to establish or
prohibit slavery " if those are the doctrines,
we repeat, which are asserted in the platform,
then we have uo hesitation in saying that the
platform is perfectly sound on the slavery
question, aud that it is the only tound platform
ou that question that has ever been adopted
by any National Convention of any party.
Those are the doctrines which we have ever
maintained; and if they shall be recognized as
true and be accepted by the American party
at the North, that party will be the only sound
party at the Nona on the slavery question.
Tlie dominating; Convention.
We regret to see that, after the Nation
al Council has given the American Party
a sound National Platform, the proceedings
of the nominating Convention have been
characterized by scenes of disorder and con
fusion. We do not know, but we fear that
the cause of this is a determination of Nor
thern delegates to make a nomination of
candidates for President and Vice Presi
dent, whilst the general desire of Southern
delegates is for a postponement of that im
portant work. We hope the meeting of
Southern delegates Saturday night will re
sult iu the restoration of order and har

LW take ihe aim and drift of the Ban
net's Saturday's article to meaft that we
hare made an illogical deduct Mi' from its
Tuesday s article, and that we pid it in a
perverse ppirit, ' Out heart lias erred as
well as our head. -We leg to assure it
that however liable to error triay be bur
reasoning faculties, our feelings towards it
are not improper, or such as would lead us
to pervert its meaning, or place a wilful
misconstruction on what it might say. As
we stated on Thursday, we have made it
our study from the moment thst wc saw a
collision of opinion with our American
friends was inevitable to give no just cause
of offence, while in obedience to our con-,
victions of duty, we fully, firmly, but not
dictatorial! y, set forth our views, on the is
sue between ns. Oo the 1 6th inst., in vin
dication of ourself, wc published " extracts
from various newspapers in the South
American, Whig and Democratic to give
our readers information iu regard to the
view taken of our contemjKirary's position.
It wa3 comparatively a new questiou. We
knew there was much misapprehension in
the public mind relative to it, and it was
especially brought to our attention that this
was the case among our American friends.
Many regarded it as a patriotic move to
banish tlie agitation of this threatening
question from the public mind, and as such
were prompt and ready to support it. Our
course did not escape animadversion. We
were taunted with a disposition to Region
alize the party. Can we be blamed for
wishing to adduce evidence to justify us in
the opinion of our party friends, by show
ing that the whole South were with us?
Certainly not. And as evidence of the
admirable temper which actuated us, we re
fer the public to our article of that day.
Wo disavowed an endorsement of the se
vere criticisms contained in the extracts by
their re-publication. We were careful to
state that we were forced to it in order to
justify ourself, and not to condemn them.
Caudidly and kindly we told them we were
fearful they had imposed an additional bur
den on themselves and us, in the discussions
of the coming Presidential canvass. We
well knew that unscrupulous partizans
of the opposition would charge their pro
posal to "ignore" no matter how pure their
motives in making it, as a disposition to
fuse and fraternize in the "wild hunt af
ter office," with men in the North who,
nominally, were members of our party
but in reality were the leaders of a purely
sectional Northern party, styling them
selves Republicans. How cutirely have
our fears been realized in the universal de
nunciation and misrepresentation, which
have roared from the broadsides of the
whole Democratic press South 1 Our ar
ticle of Thursday, which the editor of the
Banner thinks so perverse in spirit, was in
reply to his answer to our article accompa
nying the extracts. We do not intend to
speak of that aaswer again. We could not
do so without using language which is as
painful to us as to those to whom it is ap
plied. Our opinion of it, however, is not
changed. Iu dismissing this controversy
with our friend, we will say that we have
never desired to detract from his well-earned
reputation as a well-informed, sagacious
and able editor ; nor would we impair his
means of doing good iu the future by at
tempting to underrate him. We wish to
cultivate amity with him if he will allow us.
Our future course will take its shape from

A ho did Itlchardson Vole Fori
The Democratic, preses are hot in their pur
suit of Fuller for not voting for Speaker, and
charge him with dodging the question. But
they never say a word of Wilmot Proviso Rich
ardnon. Who did he vote for upon the final
vote for Speaker ? We are also told that had
the w hole American vote been cat for Aiken
he would have been elected. This is all very
well. But suppose the wbole Democratic vote
had been cast for him, would lie not still have
been elected? Banks got 103 and Aiken 100.
Now let ns see how msny I). -tnocrnts dodged
the question. John Hickman, a Democrat,
voted tor Daniel Welle; Parker, Barclay, Bsg
ly, Craige, Seward, Taylor, all Democrats,
failed to vote for sotnecaune, seven in number,
any four of whom could have secured the eleo
Lion of Aiken. lTn the last ballot four
Americans voted for Fuller, amfthree failed to
vote. Now, then, we ask w ho is to blame!
The plurality rule by which Bank ws elect
ed, was introduced by a Democrat, and voted
for by 12 Democrats, and sgtinst by every
American, so says the Tribune, their bitterest
opfKinent; and yet, when the vote for Speaker
was taken, there were as many DetnoCra.s ab

Americans. We give the facts and have ev

Fun on Deard of a Mem?t Strong
- Cause with a Poker Player
The following which is said to have occurred
on a Western steamboat, was published some
izteen years agd In the IfT'O. Picayune:
" The hero of the story was "of a 'class of gambTe'rs
who followed the river,, as (a back as lttt? as
regularly as any stssmbostmen. ' Wbeosver seen

We sy a oieuageHs, because each particular but
ton was decorated with the besj or full length of
some beast or bird, snd the collection was soout as
numerous as Ts seen iu aa ordiuary cart run. The
cuds were larger than common, perhaps to enable
the wesrer to 'sleeve a card" oecssionslly, whil
peering eat were a couple of hands, ornamented
with the usual complement of long aud nimnle fin

A search-warrant would have discovered in his
pockets a few dollars (mighty few) of sure enough
good money, a smart roll of Brandon and other
questionable paper to make the pile look respecta
ble, a couple of decks of cards, tbs bocks of which
he knew by heart, and a set of thimbles ths tools
or Hock in trade ordinarily carried .by gentlemen of
hi particular calling. Such is but a faint picture
of the worthy we are about to introduce upon the
boiler-oeck of one of - the old-time Misi-sippi
stesniboats. He bad been driveu from the upper
cabin for some "low flung" attempt at cheating, as
it wss termed, and at once set about looking out
for victims among the steerage passengers, deck
bands, and fireireu off duty.
He was not long in making op a small game ef
poker, nor was be long, by dint of putting up the
cards and other tricks known to the profession, in
tranHfening nearly all the odd times oo the lower
deck into his own pockets. He cat, shuffled, snd
deslt to ail appearance fair, and gove extra pokes
to the cards at times to show that be was above
tnking any advantage; but at length he was caught
in some trick which at once proved to the bonest
steamboiitmeu tbut they bod lost their money by
The game, as a matter of course, was blocked at
once, and a demonst. stion was immediately made
that the gambh r should refund or disgorge his ill
gotten gains. This be flatly refused to do; be taid
that he bad won the money fair and on the square,
and that he as v ry clear of parting with wt.at be
bad come honestly by. The luck had been a little
in bis favor thst wss all. They still p rsixted,
while he still pertinaci usly refused, manifesting, st
ibe same time, not a little indiguotiou at the idea of
being accused of unfair play.
The hoot at length stopped to wood, when the
men, finding it useless to attempt regaining their
money by fair means, resorted to a game which the
gambler undoubtedly thought foul. Having gained
the consent of the engineer, who understood the
lurk and wished to help it, to use the engine while
the boat was wooding, they forthwith proceeded to
put their plan in execution.
They in the first place tied one end of a rope
nround the neck of the wondering gambler, while
the other they made fast to the end ol the piston
rod, alius ins him only two or three feet slack. They
then toM the fellow that unless lie shelled out their
money, instantt-r, they should proceed to work the
engine, at the same time quietly informing him that
thoy were not responsible for sny injuries he miht
sustain Loth to give up his gains, the gambler
cast a searching look at this original system of ex
tortion, coolly calculated his chances, se-m'd to
make up his mind that the odds ag.tinst breakin-:
bis neck were in his favor, and then told them ibcy
"might work swsy and be d d."
No sooner Baid than done. The machinery was
put in motion, and the gambler was immediately
chasing the piston rod upon all-fours, a game he
understood in more senses than one, and then baek
ing out of its way; his eye all the time as firmly
fixed upon the rod as ever that of Gabriel R.ivel
was on the tight-rope. After working him forward
and backward several times, one ot his tormentors
put in with
"Don't you think you had better disgorge ?"
"Don't bother me," retorted the gambler.
"You'll get sick of that pame," said another boat
man, as the fellow was following the piston-rod up
iu the attitude of a bear.
"Not as you knows on," rejoiued the gambler
as he backed out of its way.
After th;i fashion they ran upon the poor fellow
for several minutes, he still manifesting a stubborn
unwillingness to give up his spoils. By this time
all the cabin passengers hsd heard of the fun going
on telow, and went down to witness it. The laugh
from the crowd was boisterous and hearty in the
extreme as the poor fellow, intent upon nothing
but his own safety, followel the piston-rod up to
prevent his neck from being jerked off, and then
crawfished out of its way to avoid being run over
and crushed. His looks and actions might be li
kened somewhat tc those of an old bear, dragged
by a chain up to some point against bis will, and
backing out the moment a foot ot slack was given
him; snd then again to a savage bulldog with a
rope round his neck, fiercely endeavoring to get at
some prey, aud then undergoing the process of be
iug dragged back the moment bis mouth was open
to receive it
'Fire, aud fallback!" was heard from an indi
vidual in the crowd, aud in terms anything but con
"R' ot hog or die!" came tauntingly from an
other. "Twig him only look !" shouted a bystander, in
apparent ecstacii-s of delight.
"Hump yourself or you're a goner J" cried one.
"Here he goes, there he goes," ssid another.
"Ha, ha, he, be, hi, hi, ho, ho," laughed still
another, unable to restrain himself. ,
"Ain't he iu pretty fix f" put in a fourth.
"Serves him right," ssid a fifth.
"Good enough for him," raid a sixth, the piston
rod all the while keeping him in full exercise, with
the perspiration rolling down his cheeks in stream
Not eveu a side glance did he turn riht or left
bis eyes were all the while firmly fixed upou the
obnoxious machinery before him.
"Ain't you most ready to hand over row?"
queried one of the plucked deck hand, thinking be
could not possibly hold out much longer.
"Don't bother me," returned the gambler ; "if
you do, I'll lose my lick."
"Won't you give up the monej f" inquired sn
Olher of the fleeced ones.
"If I do. I do; but if I do, I'm d d," retorted
the inseparable companion of the piston rod. "I've
got the hang of this gains understand the princi
ples of this machinery now and you may on with
more steam, and work me from one end of the Mis
sissippi to the other before I'll give up the first red
cent. Go ahead I"
In this way the fellow was worked, without flinch
ing or showing any sign of giving up, until the lot
was ready to start; when, considering that they
hod got the worth of their monev out of him in the
wit of fun, and that be had afforded mors than
sufli 'irnl smusement to compr hmU for tueir otld
dimes, the engiue was stopped and the man let
After straightening himself up, snd after puffing,
blowing and wiping the perspiration from hi face,
the gambler looked round upon the crowd with a
Self-sati-fied air, exclaiming: "You can't come it
over this child with say of your common games;
I've stood three pluck oue too often to be bluffed
off, even if there was forty acsmst me. I shall go
ashore at tbo wood pile my self, but hops lo see you
all in the fall. And if st any lime any of you want
to get up another small game, snd if there's any
thing to be made by ft, you may give me a band."
So saving, the gambler stalked coollv ashore
whirling bis stick, the boat was soon eudrr wav,
and all hands resumed their respective railings.
But up to this day they have never forgotten their
fun with the poker player. '
We reiterate the sentiment of the Patriot.
