Letters to Mothers.
In a series of articles, under this head
Mrs. Swisslielm is giving to mothers
many valuable practical hints, that are
well worth their serious attention. In
the following, she shows that she under
stands how to treat the responsibility she
recently had devolved upon her:
We were not a little amused a few days
ago at the surprise of a lady on learning
we were in the habit of giving our baby
drinks of cold water. She started as
though we had expressed a determination
to throw her into the river. 'You will
kill her!' she exclaimed, in affright, look
ing yearningly at her own pale child, just
recovered from 'a bad fit of teething!'
'She looks like dying!' was our answer,
lancing from the chubby, rosy face
our water drinker to the genteel, sallow
visage of her well cared for boy, who had
a doctor to help him to get two teeth.
The answer was past gainsaying. She
was sadlv puzzled, and murmured, 'true 1
that's true but' and she could not mafc
it out. The incident reminded us to re

A Singular Freak of Nature.
The Editors of the Gharlston Mercury
say that they were visited a few days
since by a gentleman named K. II. Cope
land, native of Laurence District, S. 0.,
but now residing in Hard county, in this
State, who presents, in his peculiar organ
ization, a very remarkable natural phe
nomena. His
right arm and hand and
right
leer are intected in such
a manner
as to exhibit in every movement the nature
and motion of a snake. The arm effect
ed is smaller than the other, its muscular
developments different, sensation much
Jess acute, and its actions altogether be
yond the control of his will. The motion
of the arm seemed to be impelled by a
separate aud distinct volition or an in-
ofstiuct entirely its own. The character of
the movements is shaped, to a considera-
ble extent by external circumstances ; at
any sudden noise, startling appearance
or the like, the arm sometimes forms it
self into a coil the head darting from
coil as if in the act of striking; at other the
times the arm and hand have the move
ment of a snake under full headway mak
ing his escape, the limb preserving the
peculiar tortuous motion of the reptile.
At such times the rapidity of the motion
is truly astonishing. The action of the
affected part is continuous. The mucles
are never entirely at rest, though some-

An Awful Monster.
CROSS OF THE MAX, DOG, HOG, AND COW
We Saw this morning the dead body of
one of te most singular natural cunosit
ies which we have ever beheld. It was
what purported to be the carcass of a
calf but resembling in its conformations
any thing but a call. The head which
measured in circumstance, just above the
ears, 3 feet and 3 inches bore a striking
and startling resemblance to the human
head. From above the eyes to the back
of the neck it presented a perfect resem

From the North American
" Young America" has triumphed, but
atthexjost of its bold and energetic leader.
Cass aud Buchanan have fallen, it is true,
but Douglass fell with them. It was long
since predicted by me that, much as the
two great rivals hated each other, they
both hated the new spirit that em
bodiment of -a new era and a new ele
ment still more. Manifest destiny,
therefore, clearly exhibited to the vision
of all but the willfully blind, that as soon
as Cass and Buchanan were defeated, they
would bur' the hatchet and combine a
gainst Douglass. Time has fulfilled the
prophecy. The epitaphs of the trio are
written. They arc beyond the reach of
rival, now or hereafter. The onlv com
manding statesmen of the party have been
kicked aside, because the' were promi-
went and of national name. Their dis-
notion was the active influence which pre-
cipitated their downfall. Under the pres
ent system, no man of conspicuous char
acter, of elevated merit, or of public po
sition, can be nominated in a Democratic
Convention. None but a negative candi
date, who has crossed no man's path; who
has no history and no merit ; who has
been retired from general observation,
and yet known in local management, and
who is convenient for every requisite pur
pose, will ever be chosen. How can it be
otherwise ? Gen. Cas3 was the manifest
choice of the Convention, and yet he was
discarded. Mr. Buchanan was nearly an
equal favoririte, and yet he was overshad
owed. Let such men affect to acquiesce
as much as they may, it is a trait of hu
man nature to rebel against such imposi
tion. They know better than the country
does that Mr. Pierce has superseded them,
withoutservices,and without qualifications,
and for the reason that he is compara
tively unknown, and has no record in his
Congressional life better than that of a
thousand others of undistinguished equals.
The nominations have fallen upon the
pariy with a chill of almost universal dis
approbation. It is difficult to realize that
so larefaced and so whosesale a dispar
agement of claims should have been at
tempted. In no quarter, and in no in
terest, is there satisfaction. Surprise and
indignation prevail. Mr. Pierce is a man
of Mediocrity, allowing him every charit
abb consideration. He has done noth
ing, and said nothing, that can be recall
ed to his credit. His father kept a tav
ern "down east," where he acquired easy
anl jovial habits. He is regarded as
what the world calls a "good natured
fellow," of rather liberal disposition, but
with a calculating nature, below it, which
never allows him to be betrayed into mis
taken generosity. As a soldier, he came j
back from the Mexican war with little
reputation other than that which the mag
nanimity of the superior officers conceded
in official reports. To their friendly feel
ings he is more indebted than to his own
achievements. It was his misfortune to
faint and fall from his hor3e, at a moment
of peculiar importance, when the enemy
were in view, and when battle raged. Per
haps it was a defect of constitutional or
ganization. I do not mean to challenge
his courage, but the fact is historical.
Mr. King has been in public life some
way other, for forty years. Good man
ners, starched address, and thc careful
cultivation of social and political propri
eties, are his only recommendations. Ho
nover was guilty of originating an idea,
of shaping a measure, or of directing a
movement. His career has been one of
decent and staid forms. He is a follow
er, and therefore has nevor interfered with
others. In him the perceptive instincts
of power have always been strong and
profitable. With a contracted mind and
a ceremonious deportment, as much stud
ied as the tie of Beau Brummel's cravat
was, he has attained more position than
any equally unprovided living man. It
proves the value of good breeding, and
illustrates what limited resources are ca
pable of accomplishing.
This feeble ticket is another attempt of
tho Democracy to demonstrate that little
talent and less statesmanship are required
to conduct this government. But such
experiments cannot be repeated with suc
cess. Mr. Polk was vastly superior in
mental powers and in attainments to ei
ther of the present candidates, and indeed
to both combined. In adopting a Gen
eral, our opponents hoped to overcome a
threatened obstacle
to surress. .1 hey
blundered in
h cting
n pmllv dr-ti-
tute ol deeds; and of glory. His laurels
have not yei been won, nor are they
likely to be upon the field which is now
chosen for he contest. It was a consid
erate compliment to "Old Fogyism" to
adopt for the Yice Presidential candidate
one who can count his three-score and
ten years, and who is the very incarnation
of all that i fogyish ; quite as much so
indeed as a political fossil, with the marks
of an antediluvian age.
There are some striking features con
nected with these events, which are wor
thy of notice. Mr. Scott's thirteen res
pondents were all brought down at one
discharge. !Not a man of them survives.
They were doomed victims from thc hour
in which they consented to dishonor them
selves and to degrade the chief magistra
cy by pledges, thc execution of which
would have outraged the constitution, and
entirely revolutionized the government.
They willingly engaged to employ thc
veto, to overthrow the law-making pow
er, and thus to establish a partizan des
potism. It was an ingenious contrivance,
that of Mr. Scott, to cut down the tall
popies at one sweep of the political scythe,
so that the heads ol short ones might be
come vissible. He succeeded; and. as if
to mark the design the more distinctly, it
' j
was the Virginia delegation which, first
ot all others from the South, adopted Mr.
Pierce. Mr. Marcy lacked one vote, on
ly, of carrying the patriots from the "Old
Dominion.' While the nominee is thus
obliged to one Scott for his present dis
tinction, he will, before six months, be
no less indebted to another Scott for his
future defeat. There is an ommous sig
nificance iu that name Winjteld, which
the plainest can interpret. More than
thirty thousand living soldiers of all the
wars from 1812 down to that of Mexico,
and their descendants and immediate kin,
numbering one hundred and twenty thou
sand more, scattered like so many mis
sionaries all over the Union, hail it with
enthusiasmand gratitude hail it as Con
stantine did the glory in the Heavens
under this sign thou slialt conquer !
As long as the two-thirds rule prevails
in Democratic Conventions, so long will
small and negative men only be selected
as candidates. The effect is, therefore,
to cheapen the Presidential office by invi
ting a swarm of incompetent competitors.
No aspirant of mark who has ever made
a figure in public life can be selected.
The absence of distinction is a positive
recommendation. Under this order Cass
and Buchanan were excluded ; men who,
whatever he their political associations ;
are identified with the history of the coun
try and at home and abroad arc recog
nized as distinguished leaders. They
have been hustled out of doors, and pitch
ed into a corner as so much old rubbish;
while an invention of accident a mere
skeleton of a candidate, without flesh or
muscles is imposed upon the country as
the exponent of a party ! They christen
this creation "Young Hickory of the
Granite Hills." That is the cry and the
only recommendation. If "Old Hickory"
could rise from the dead, he would re
venge this insult to his memory ; and if
he could have appeared at Chapultepcc,
where the fall of General Pierce was sig
nalized, he might have put it beyond thc
power of party to wrong a name which he
cherished as the symbol of his character.
Thev are strange materials of which
" Hickorv" is made now-a-davs. Mr.
. j v
Polk wa3 "Younk Hickory," in his fash
ion. He made war, it is true, but took
care to be out of the range of ik artillery.
Mr. Pierce was in battle, but fell early
m the engag
rement from his horse.
So it is for this prowess he is to inherit
the title of " Young Hickory," junior.
" Thc platform" is a characteristic af
fair. It endorses the Declaration of In
dependence, reaffirms the gutta percha
resolutions of '93 and '90, which have
seen such hard service for half a century,
is silent on the Maine liquor law and tho
llochester rappings, and exorcises the de
parted sprite of the National Bank, which
like some dark demon seems to haunt the
bed curtains of restless Democracy.
Those arc the standing generalities the
old land-marks, as they are lamiliarly
called.
But it goes farther and declares that
there is no constitutional power to improve
our rivers and harbors, and that tho gen
eral government should not lend its aid to
protect that immense internal commerce
in which the prosperity of hundreds of
millions of dollars, and the safety of tens
of thousands of lives are annually involv
ed. Again, for thc benefit of Pennsylva
nia and the manufacturing States, and by
way of putting tho iron heel more effec
tually upon the neck of suffering domes
tic industry, already prostrated by Loco
foco legislation, tho platform asserts that
"justice and sound policy forbid thc Fed
eral government from fostering" it. Af
ter affirming a bundle of truisms which no
body ever dreamt of disputing, and which
contain a direct impeachment of tho in
telligence of the American people, this
precious document concludes with an eu
logy upon the " justice and necessity of
the Mexican war,'1 uit of which th .-"c
ti "n;il rontror md litiwH "n gr'
Upon the compromise, the platform
is politic. It avoids all thc points of
danger presented by Mr. Scott. Nothing
is exacted but to abide the settlement
remember, not approve it and to " ad
here" to the faithful execution of the laws.
That is to say, while the laws exist, they
ought to be respected, as every good cit
izen admits ; but there is no injunction a-
gainst amendment or modification, except
qualifiedly, aud no mention of the veto.
This is the length and breadth of thc
whole affair, and was designed for the
accommodation of thc Free Soilers, Gid
dinga, Hantoul, Chase, Cleveland, Preston
King; and the Abolition wing of the par
ty, under the name of the "True Democ
racy," have attained their object and tri
umphed. They can afford to take Mr.
Pierce on their own terms, although tho
ticket is balanced with an avowed seces
sionist. Notwithstanding the admitted weakness
of this ticket, it should be no part of our
policy to despise it. A prudent General, in
order to socure his victory should assumo
the strength of the enemy to be at least
equal, if not superior, to his own. The
same precautions are equally necessary
in politics. Our opponents have a facul
ty of uniting their forces, even when most
embittered by party strifes. Disregard
ing all principle, they consult but the one
object of regaining ascendency, and
through it a distribution of the Spoils.
A Whig triumph now will settle the polit
ical complexion of the country for many
years to come, and determine its legislation.
A glorious and unprecedented success is
within our reach. Shall we reject it or
take a doubtful chance ? If we have
reasonable union and concert, the result
will be overwhelming. Gen. Scott's name,
services and character offer a certainty
which no other candidate presents. He
will sweep the couutry.
When Gen Harrison was nominated iu
13-10, thc whole South rose up in arms
against him, and, although of Southern
birth, he was denounced as an " Aboli
tionist" and a " Granny." The disap
pointment resulting from Mr. Clay's de
feat at Harrisburg created an open schism r
and feelings of indignation were freely
vented. Tried and fathful Whigs declared,
they would not support him. And yet hia
majorities in the South were never ap
proached by any other candidate before
or since. In 1848 Mr. Clay was again set
aside, and for the last time. The scenes in
the convention of that year are familiar to
all. Thc nomination of Gen. Taylor was
coolly received by a large portion of the
party throughout the Free States. Yefc
he, too was triumphantly elected.
These memorable examples are full of
instruction. They show what has been
accomplished under the most adverse ap
pearances. Gen. Scott's nomination will
rally the party as with the blast of a bu
gle. It will penetrate every section. Ifc
will nerve every man's arm. It will cheer
every Whig's heart. It will bear along
the prestige of that victorious name which
never yet was tarnished with defeat. Ifc
will inspire enthusiasm. It will wake
up the dormant energies of the party. Ifc
will rally to our standard tens of thous
who have have heretofore gloried in Dem
ocracy, and it will secure a-Whig Admin
istration, faithful to the Union, the consti
tution, and the country.
Without desiring to disparage Mr. Fill
more or Mr. Webster, can either of them
give such assurance ? Can the party, in
its now enfeebled condition, and with the
power and patronage of a majority of the
States operating against us, undertake
this canvass with well grounded hopes,
under such auspices? Thc very men who
will urge these candidates in convention,
arc those who admit the superior advan
tages possessed by Gen. Seott. Let us
reflect, aud then act.

Wtat is a Fop ? A Mr. Stark, in a.
lecture before thc Voting Men's Association
of Troy, N. Y., thus defines a fop :
" Thc fop is a complete specimen of an
outside philosopher, lie is one third col

walking stick, and the rest kid gloves and
hair. As to his remote ancestry there id
some doubt, but it is now pretty well set
tled that he is the sou of a tailor's goose.
