'Democracy is a sentiment not to bo appalled,
corrupted or compromised. It knows no baseness,
rowers to no danger, oppresses, no weakness. Fear
less, generous and humane, it rebukes the arrogant,
cherishes honor, and sympathies with the humble.
It asks nothins but what it concedes; it concedes
nothing but what It demands. Destructlvo oiily of
despotism, It is the sole conservative of liberty, la
borantl property. It is tho sentimcut of freedom.
of equal obllaallon. It Is the law of nature per
Tailing tho law of tho land. The stupid, the nel
fiah, the base in spirit may denounce it as a vulvar
thitiit: but in the history of our race the Demo.
cralic principle has developed and illustrated the
hlfihcst moral and lninectual attributes of our
nature. Yes, this is a noble, magnanimous, a sub
lime sentiment, which expands our affections, eu
largos tho circle of our sympathies and elevates the
noul of man until, claiming an equality with the
best, he rejects as auworthy of his dignity any po
litical Immunities over the humblest of his fellows.
Yes, It is an ennobling principlo; and may that
spirit which animated ourrathers In the Revolution
ary content for Its establishment coutlune to mil
mate us, their sons, In tho impending struggle for
its preservation." WILLIAM ALLEN.

It is reported that the friends of Filz
John Porter will present a bill before Con
gress, at its next meeting, not only to rein
btatc him in tho army in his old rank with
all his back-pay, but to promote him to the
rank of Major-Gencral. It is estimated
that General Porter's back-pay under this
bill will amount to $115,000. If this bill
passes it will cut off promotion from General
Pope who' now heads tho list of Biigdiur
Generals. Tiik Nashville Democrat learns that Mr.
Jabcz Webster, the well known Centralia
nurseryman, recently started on a trip to
London, England, his native place, where
he hopes to establish his claims, as one of
the heirs of the celebrated Hyde estate,
which is worth many millions of dollars,
and which has been awaiting nn owner for

nurseryman W. B. Wright is expecting.

the Democracy can name ns its standard

fallen flat. There is nothing in Hendrick's
name, at this time, to excite enthusiasm,

The impression created ly speculators
that tho supply ot petroleum was likely to
run out, was purely for speculative pur
poses. The inquiry the impression excited
disclosed the fact that there has beeii a con
stant increase until the supply, at this
time, reaches sixty thousand barrels daily.
The price for the crude article has fallen
from 1 per barrel to G3 cents or to about
one and live-eighth cents per gallon the

twice as much as the oil itself.

and three flouring mills in Mt. Vernon.
What's the matter? One of our friends un

ground, and was returned 200 pounds of
flour, after the miller had deducted his toll
for grinding. This is an easy way to make

Tiikke is a warm place in the hearts of
the American people for ex-ScuatorSpraguc ;
and but little of either friendship or pity
for his foolishly ambitious and reckless
wife. At the outbreak of the war he was
the Democratic Governor of Rhode Island.
He at once decided that no expenditure of
treasure or loss of Ufa could be too great
to save the Union, and set himself about
the work of raising and equipping troops.
Brave men responded to his call. He did
not send them to the field, and return to the
luxuries of official life; but like the brave,
patriotic man that he was, he mounted his
horse, and led them in every haul" in
which they engaged, winning a name
for courage, coolness and dis
cretion that distinguished him as one of
the best soldiers developed by the war.
Other Governors did excellent service, at
home. Sprague, the young Democratic
Governor of Rhode Island, did well at home,
and gloriously in the field the only Gov
ernor in the North who put aside the ease
and comfort and safety of official life, and
shared with his people the hardships, dan
gers and glories of the tented field.
A yol'm; lunn rtatiHHl Daniel Summer,
living near Mt. Vernon, was out hunting,
tho other day. and while passing a fence
corner a snake sprang forward and buried its
fangs in the calf of his leg, he being bare
footed at the time and having his panta
loons rolled up. Tile Mt. Vernon News
says the leg commenced swelliug instantly.
After shooting the reptile the young man
ran a quarter of a mile to the nearest
house; drank a half pint of whisky; then,
mounting a horse lie ran it a mile and a
half farther to Dr. llilhurcVs who ad
ministered a pint of alcohol

without giving warning. Since hi this,
and thousands of instances', it has been
demonstrated that alcohol is an infallible an
tidote for the poison of all kinds of reptiles,
who can say that it may not serve equally
well in cases of hydrophobia or rabbies? In
toxication, in case of a snake bite, indi
cates a mastery o. the poison. Would not
a like condition in case of rabbies indicate
the same thing? If so, it scarcely seems
possible that alcohol would fail, in case the
stomach were filled with it, to produce the

concluded, with his grandfather's sanction,
that ho would marry a Miss Williams, of
Baltimore, who had hi her own' riht, an
income of $ 0,000 a year.
Writing to her father from Florence, in
Italy, she says:

that would be little enough to excuse you
and me for aiding him in marrying beneath
"I would as soon go to Botany Bay to
look for a husband as ever to have married
any one in America with nny fortune after
having married as I did. Any person of
sense and prido would have felt as I did on
this subject, and all those who wished -n
happiness would have been happy to
see me permanently fixed in Europe, be

come impossible for me to lower my views
and feelings sufficient to endure a residence
in Baltimore. I never was calculated for
the lilc led there. My beauty, my sense
and my ambition, and the admiration due
to them all these rendered it absurd to
expect that I could possibly be satisfied
with liviug there. My son has inherited
some of the qualities which I possess. He
is not deficient in talent or beauty, but he
wants the pride and ambition which give
them value. lie is certainly at liberty to
live where lie likes. I may deplore the
humility of disposition which allows him to
many in Baltimore, but as I can not in
spire him with my tastes and feelings I
must try to bear this disappointment ns
well as I can. I think, however, that my
consent ought to have been asked, :md that
better terms ought to have been in:.de. He
has been treated no bitter, and not as we!!,
as the sons of any of the apothecaries and
shopkeepers who have married American
heiresses. I do not recollect any of then
having been cut off from the fortunes of
their wives. The income ought to have
been thrown in their faces if offered with
out half of the principal. The children,
too, ought to have been provided for if l:e
died before her. I have no patience to
think of his having been so completely
sacrificed. I would not have allowed him
to marry even a person of family upm such
terms, let alone in Baltimore."'

"When my son left Europe I told liin
never to marry in America, and I havore

since. I certainly never would have Har

brother of an Emperor, and when I found
that I was likely to live there, I would lave
committed suicide if I had not been . too
great a coward.
"I have no other idea ot comfort in any
other mode of life than in courts and liviiii;
with people of rank and going into company
every day. I hate retirement and domestic
life, and have sacrificed through life

not be expected that I should ever advise
my son to marry in Baltimore."
"My ambition, my beauty and my intel

the proper residence for me and for my son.

that of American wives and American sons,

on our part could have rendered Baltimore
