General Harrison and Taylor wero the

Gen. Sfott. who possesses the same nega

candy argument waa very good one; but
here ia another anecdote, related ey tne
Boston Pest, the leading Locofoeo paper in
Mamchustt. which i not far bcblnd it in
the vigorouness of its verdure: ".
"Gen. Pierce once spent a Sabbath in a
country Village in New Hampahire, and tho'
the preacher was very dull and the weather
warm, thought it hi duty to attend church.''
; Thi may be considered an extraordinary
exemplification of patience 'under diffirultie;
and most any person may now consider him
self qualified for tho Preaideney, for who
has nut given a boy a cent to buy candy!
and who his not nt time listened to a very
dull preacher in warm weather !
But the Pos aeeWS nut Je eatisfied and
appear determined to exhibit Gen. Pierce'
liberality in it strongest light. It says:
"Once on a Sabbath contribution In his
native town for Sunday school purposes, we
wero gratified to see General Pierce empty
bis pockets into the contribution box."
"Empty hi pocket into the eontribution
box!" That wa liberal and tho only ques
tion remaining 1 as to the contents of bis
pockets. Upon this delicate question, the
Post, we are sorry to say, has not enlighten
ed us, and in justice we must put the most
libera construction upon it. Each reader
will therefore please imsgine the contents
according to tho best of hit knowledge and
experience.
In conclusion we may add that the Post is
a funny paper and it may be tb it it ha found
n an "unknown" subject, a good opportuni
ty for indulging in its witticisms.

.The Fairtmo CAnniDATK. Pike,
merly of thi city, now in Kentucky, ha ta
ken it upon himself to excuse the fainting of
Gen. Pierce, and we accordingly, in justice
to that General, give the gist of the argu
ment, it being the only one that has yet fal
len under our observation. Tho Flay say
"In the first place, faikting is, according
to our best lexicographers, jailing into
twoon; failivg,or Imncr ttrength. It is, with
some persons, ciufu ujr excessive uomiy
pain; w ith other, It is caused by any sudden
emotion or the mind, wnicn may ue calcu
lated to shock the sensibilities of our nature
or overwhelm us with grief and angoieh;and
with a large portion of mankind, it is a sort ol
idtostKWtyi peculiar temper or disposition
or budy, nut common to outers.
After denying that Pierce was troubled
with a "sort of idioy ncracy ," tho Flag adds
"But, as "all tho world and tho rest o
mankind" are liable to faint from loss o
blood, excllislvo fstigue and excruciating
pain, s well as trom 'sudden emotions ot tlie
mind.' we ore led to believo that ki$ fainting,
about which Whiggory has had so much to
say, was caused by these latter reuse com
bined, to wit: Fatigue, great bodily pain,
and s rudileheHwticn of the mind, ony one
of whi b was sulbcint to produce the result
and more especially the lal'er."
"Especially tho latter" was the cauie tin
douhtedly. We hardly know to whit.h oUghl
to be given the most credit -tlie Boston
Pott on liberality, or tho Kentucky Flag on
fainting. The argument in both case, wi
submit to tbo consideration of our Democrat
io friends.

following from tho Royal ilatttle Bermuda
appears to rest upon very reliablo author
ity and is no doubt valuabb. Lot our lady
readers preserve it until the coming tomato
season, and then give it a trial.
It will bo noticed that Mr. J. B. Hey,
Chemist and Druggist of this town, obtulued
a prim at tho Show held at Mount Langton
last Wednesday, for Tomato Figs. A the
Tomatos prepared according to Mr. Heyl's
plan are very delicious and may bo made an
article of export, wo have obtained from him
a copy of hi rocepe, which we subjoin for
general Information:
"Take six pounds 0fsu2.tr to one peck
or sixteen p unds of the fruit, scald snd re
move the skin of the fruit in the usual wsy,
cook them over a Hie, their own juice being
sufficient without tho addition of water, un
til tbe sugar penetrates and they are clari
fied, thev are then taken out, spread on dish
es, flattened and dried in the sun. A small
quantity of the syrup should be occasionally
sprinkled over them whilst drying, after
which pack them down in boxes, treating
each layer with powdered sugar. The syrup
is afterwards concentrated and bottled lor
use. Thry keep well from year to year, and
retain their flavor surprisingly, which is
nearly that of the best quality of fresh figs.
Tho pear shaped or single tomatos answer
the purpose best. Ordinary brown sugsr
may be used, a Urge portion of which ia re
taincd in the syrup. .
