'Thi Spoils." Unlike Medary, the two
Locofoco papers at Washington are just now
anxious to obtain the public printing. Sev
eral days since, the Locofoco caucus agreed
Upon the plan, but it failed to meet with the
approbation, of the House. To pbtain the
consent of three wings of the party, it will
be necessary to make provisions for the
"Southern Press" as well as the "Union."
We can do no better than add what a prom
inent democrat says in the first-named pa
per: "The whole difficulty in settling this mat
ter, vital as it is to the democratic party, aris
es from a want of concert among the mem
bers of the party in Congress. In the face
of the enemy, on the eve of a great struggle,
the Democratic members of Congress have
no mutual understanding, and are perfectly
disorganized. I have hear d them compared
to two hundred fowls in a barn-yard, among
whom a handful of corn had just been thrown
every one picking up the grains for him
self. . Now, a public printer cannot be cho
sen, except by the nearly united voice of the
democratic party, and the mistake that Gen.
Armstrong has been making is, that he is
trying to force the printing through a single
taction ot the party. There are three wings
of the party in Congress the Compromise,
the Southern Rights, and the Freesoil.
These must be brought to agree, or there is
no printer. And I must be permitted to say
that it is highly discreditable to the party in
Congress that it thus exhibits its weakness.
While the Whigs are actively engaged in
printing and distributing documents, exhib
iting as usual, a -double face holding up
Scott to the North as a freesoiler through
the speeches of Gentry and Toombs, and
Pierce to the South as a free so i lor through
a contrary testimony the democrats are like
a flock of sheep disunited, disorganized and
quarreling among themselves, ana all for the
want of such an understanding as five min
utes of common sense conversation ought to
bring about.
If Gen. Armstrong will take the proper
steps, and exhibit a proper spirit of concilia
tion, Gorman's bill might pass, and an ar
rangement might be made by which both he
and the party would be gainers. If he does
not he. may hang up his fiddle, and tho party
must get along without an organ, and take
the consequences of meeting the disciplined
and regular forces of Whiggery in Novem
ber, with a militia rabble. Democrat.
Barring the compliments, it must be con
fessed that "A Democrat" knows his breth
ren well. This thing of abolishing the con
tract system, is '"vital" to tho Democratic
party, is It! Then a public printer with
double rates, or the party must die. Oh!
what a Bhame it is that this great party, the
Democracy, can only be held together when
the "spoils" are equally divided! And you
hear young orators, after seeing such con
fessions as this, prate upon the corners of
the streets about "principles" "Democratic
principles" and you hear such men as Dr.
Olds, who can't be happy unless they are
digging in the public treasury, talk about the
"five loaves andtwofishes",and all the while
it is acknowledged that the division of the
spoils is "vital" to the Democratic party!
Such a party, such leaders and such Inno
cent young orators but who pays for all
this) .........
Party papers must be supported, and if in
dividual enterprize can't accomplish this,the
public must pay. Citizen Medary, even at
the cost of a violation of the new Consti
tution, must have one more good dig at the
Treasury; and there at Washington while
the contract system is advocated in other
natters, it won't do at all for the printing
The price won't keep up the organ. And
descending to small matters, here at home,
the Eagle must be kept afloat by similar a.
eaults upon the people's pockets.
It was, only a short time since that Com'
missioner Reese, a sworn officer, a Smart
man. a talented man. a (rood looking indi
vidual, one after the fashion of good old Un
cle Ned, barring the "outside and inside"
"Who has no brain in ie top of his head,

Declared positively that the Whig office
should not get the County printing at full
pricfr.half price, quarter price or any other
price and yet half the salary that this man
pockets every year for doing worse than
nothing, comes out of the pockets of Whig
tax-payers. iAnd more than this, if this
same individual had a private job to do, and
a Whig office agreed to do it for half what
one of his own party would charge him, his
inate sense of Individual economy would in
duce him to do what under no circumstances,
as he says, would he do for the county.
. We thought while we were on tho ques
tion. that we would give our worthy Com'
missioner, a few ideas for evening meditation
ftef the labors of the day are over, and
should our kind offices prove acceptable, we
ahall occasionally take the pains ol recurring
to this and other subjects, connected with
Ills official duties, in order that in our hum
Me way we may relieve that dullness into
which himself and friends have Aeen tnrown
Iiv the nomination of Gen. Pierce. And we
ssure him that our attentions are not caused
W any particular .regard for himself, one
iu.tr or the other, but that we may . be of
eome little service to tho tax-payers of the
counts ! Already, If we are properly in
formed, a saving of over a hundred dollars
hat been wade, and this being accomplished
mainly through th instrumentality of that
"filthy Whig sheet," Its editor feels a iitti
more confidence in again directing the attea
tion of the v tax-payers to their county oflv
ers,alt of whom have taken an oath to dis
charge ' the duties of their office, : '"hOneMy'
faithfully and impartially," and to support the
Constitution of the United States and the

Nothing is said about "to the best of their
knowledge and ability," or a' few of them
might feel relieved.
Himiltoh Democract The ' harmoni
ous democracy of Hamilton county, are still
engaged . in the laudable occupation of ex
posing the doings and objects of the "Red
Lodge" of that county, and blackguarding
each other. The Statesman thinks, as they
have got through with that delectable sheet,
that they can't be quiet and must now turn
upon each other, and accuses Robinson of
putting on an "honest look," while Rob re
torts by saying that Sam can't even do that
In the muss, the . Enquirer expresses the
opinion . that the quarrel of the Hamilton
county Democracy will dofeat . Pierce.
Pshaw! the quarrel at Washington would do
that, even if the people had an idea of elect
ing him. As several late years have been
devoted to "purifying" the Democracy down
there, and as it is not yet accomplished ac
cording to their own acknowledgements, we
must confess that we have lost all hope of
witnessing that desirable result. : '
Newspaper Postaoe. An amendment to
the Postoffice Law has passed the House,
whicht In effect, raise the postage on city
newspapers, while it lowers it on country
papersl Surely the house would not have
passed this bill had it been aware of its ef
fects. It never could have been intended so
injuriously to affect the city Press. City
While the country papers paid as much
postage from hereto Dumontsville, four
miles, as the city papers did from Cincinnati
to this city, 120 miles, seldom indeed did we
soe any effort made by the city press to have
justice done, and we are not certain but the
"horrible" amendment is designed to accom
plish this. However, we will wait and see;
and should the fears of our city contempora
ry be realized, we shall return good for evil.
Vacaict Offices. There are at present
six vacant offices in the county of Shasta:
Sheriff, Assessor, County Surveyor, Publio
Administrator, Justice of the Peace and
Census Taker. This speaks well for the
county. Were no other employments more
profitable than office-holding, these offices
would not be suffered to remain vacant so
long. Shasta, Cat. Cour. '
Send to "Old Fairfield," Mr. Courier,
you will find plenty of patriotic gentlemen
here, ready and anxious to fill all such va
cancies. '
Gov. Campdell.of Tennessee. This gen
tleman was said by some of the Washington
telegraphers to be opposed to Gen. Scott.
The correspondent of the Courier and En
quirer says:
There is no truth whatever in the story
sent out from this city with others from the
some mint, that Gov. Campbell, of Ten
nessee, intends to oppose the nomination of
Gen. Scott. Letters were received from him
yesterday, giving a flat and unqualified
contradiction to these rumors, and announc-
ne his intention to co-operate earnestly
with that party of which he has so long been
an ornament and an honor.
So sinks another lie into the ground. '
The Whig Spirit in New Orleans.
The Whigs of New Orleans determined the
therdoy to form a Company to be called
the "Scott Rangers." Accordingly a meet
ing was held and the ball put in motion.

iiHQLAND. The elections are the all en
grossing subject of attention. Most of tho
English borouirh members of Parliament
have been returned. The result thus far is
unfavorable to the Ministry. The county e
lections, however, may make a change. The
election returns in the Daily News yester
day, classifies M. P's. as follows: Liberals
106, Uerbyites 80. The London Times
makes the returns 139 Liborals, 68 thorough
Ministry, and 38 Liberal Conservatives.
The Tories have succeeded in electing in
Liverpool Sir W. Clay, and L. Butler for
Tower Hamlets, where Geo. Thompson was

A Monster Show. The largest Travelling
Exhibition in the world, probably, is the
Museum and Menagerie of P. T. Barnum,
which is soon to make a tour of the princi
pal towns in this State. In getting up this
Museum, it was the object of the proprietor
to present something which should be essen
tially unlike any thing which had preceded
it, and at the same time eminently attrac
tive. His first step was to charter a ship
and send it to Ceylon, taking out a party for
the purpose of hunting elophants in their na
tive wilds. The expedition resulted in the
capture of a herd of these large animals, in
cluding a female with her calf, only a lew
months old, and they now accompany the
exhibition, having been trained to work in
harness. To carry out his design of fitting
up a Locomotive Museum, collections of wax
statuary and curiosities were brought to
gether, with a variety of the most rare and
interesting species of living animals, and to
all this was added various interesting per
formances which are fully described In the
advertisement. The far-famed original
General Ton Thumb is included among the
wonders of this establishment, and his per
formances alone have always drawn crowds
at the same price of admission as is charged
to the whole of the monster exhibition.
With such a variety of novel features, it is
not strange that this has proved one of the
most successful of Barnum's speculations.

the sapAent editor of the Eagle should dis
credit the communication ol fcwiler, addres
sed to him, through your paper, a few days

requires some explanation. Perhaps Swi

son the editor has judged proper to discredit
it; but he should bear in mind that Swiler
may have been unusually excited when he

have been read under a similar influence.

Charleston, S. C, July 32. At tho
Whig State Convention, at Tallahassee,
Florida, on the 15th inst., a majority ratified
the nomination.
Col. G. T. Ward was nominated for Gov
ernor, and E. C. Cabell, for Congress. Col.
Ward declined for 3 reasons: one of which
was, that he had received a letter from Mr.
Cabell of a character to make running on
the same ticket with him out of the question
Mr. Cabell's letter was read. He said un
der no circumstances would he support Gen.
Scott that Whigs ought to make no effort
to carry the State, except on Congressional
and State tickets.
The Convention afterwards sat an hour
with closed doors, and ro-nominated Col.
Ward. ' . .

Alas, poor Svtfi-er! If his past services
or talents can excite no veneration in the
Editor or his associates, I should think the
WiM-ing honors now heaped upon him, should
command in them some degree ot admiration,
if not of rivalry; for I understand, he is in
command of tho Still House Rangers and has
received diplomas from several swill tub so
cieties. Another remarkable quality ot
Swiler's, should induce the Editor, at least,
not to abandon him for the present, for it is
well known that Swiler acquired during the
Indian wars, seme medical skill, with which
he can cure snake bit sulijects, and like the
Kentuck doctor is h 11 on fts. Now if the
Editor be wise and keep an eye to the future,
his friends medical services may be secured,
when the occasion shall present the necessi
ty. As the Eagle is conducted with an abili
ty rarely equalled, certainly not surpassed
by any other paper mis biuo oi uiuenu, i
think he should not indulge at random in
attacking our private citizens, for it is quite
clear, under an authority like his, their re
putations must be forever blasted; this, it
is true, might not happen abroad, but here,
where all the parties orf known, they had bet
ter die with the fits,or Tun counter with some
den of snakes, than fall under his censure, lor
the obloquy that will rest upon their heads
will not be forgotten for the third or fourth

05"It is curious to see how ridiculous
men will sometimes make themselves in
their support of a political candidate. In
the present case, the insignificance of the
Democratic nominee is such that editors,
who are wise.deal in generalities, and those
who are foolish, utter such tirades as the fol
lowing, From the Houston Telegraph:
The laurels that were won by Gen.
Pierce in the Mexican campaign are stain
ed by no dishonor. He was like tho chival
rous Bayard, a warrior without fear and
without reproach! His comrades in arms
admire him for his gallant deeds, and for
his manyjprivatc virtues! The sturdy sons
of New England hail him as a leader worthy
of the glorious days of the Revolution, and
they will class him with the Hancocks, the
WarrenB, the Adams', the Putnams of by
gone days! I ! The eternal mountains of
the old Granito State will ring with joyous
acclamations, as the poriod of the election
approaches; and louder and louder will the
peals of victorv ring, until he is duly in
augurated President of the United States!!!
To think of comparing Franklin Pierce
as a statesman, with the Hancocks and Ad
ams,' and as a warrior with Putnams of New
England. There will come a voice from
the Wolfs Den before the ides of Novem-ber-thatwill
give the lie to that assertion.--Hartford

Exr-ATRiATiso Himself. In the Eagle of
yesterday, on the third page and first col
umn, the reader will note the following:
"But Gen. Scott has always been a re
markably discreet man, when his personal
safety was in danger. His discretion was e
vinced in keeping out of bullet range during
the entire Mexican Campaign. Taking ad
vantage of his position as Commander-in-chief,
to station himself in the rear!"
Same page, second column, and nearly op
posite, is the following:
"That Gen. Scott is a brave man, NO A
MERICAN will doubt."
That is just what we think, only the Ea
gle's declaration saves us the trouble of say
ing so. Soil must happen with these greas
ers. It is much better to tell the truth than
to lie, and these inconsistencies are una
voidable, for the. most inveterate falsifier
will sometimes tell the truth by mistake.

Cure for Hydrophobia, discovered by M.
Cossar, a distinguished French physician:
Take two tablespoonfuls of fresh chloride of
lime in powder, mix it with a half-pint of
water, and with this wash keep the wound
constantly bathed, and frequently renewed.
The chlorine gas possesses the power of de
composing the tremendous poison, and rend-
era mild and harmless that venom, agoinst
whose resistless attack the artillery of
science has been so long directed in vain. T
It is necessary to add, that tins wash should
be applied as soon ss possible after the in'
diction of the bite. The following are th
