Moderi Democracy. "The history of
the Ut session of Congress teaches usun
roistakeably that there is NO 8AFETY IN
TIES IN CONGRESS. Unrestrained by
the veto, we hare found that men calling
themaelrea Democrats and elected by Dem
ocrata leave us upon nearly every measure
aldressed to their selfish or seetional feel
ingsand upon all measures envolving
heavy expenditures of money." Richmond

he will restiainthe action of the People's
Representatives by his Veto. By this De
mocracy, he was first proposed to the Con
vention; by this Democracy ,he was sustained
and nominated; and by this Democracy, he
will be controlled. And what is it!
If any Constitutional Monarch in Europe,
exercises greater power than this, let him be
pointed out.. If there is anyone measure
more directly opposed to the genuine princi
ples of a Representative Democracy, let us
have it. There is no Democracy in it. It

passage of any law, of any appropriation.
It ta wrong in principle; it Is wrong in prac
tice. It gives the President the control Of
the immediate representatives of the peo.
pie and sets him up as the Kinq. Names
are nothing. The Queen of England can
make Nobles; the President of the United
Slates can form an army of office-holders.
In this respect, he has the advantage, for his
power is greater. She holds her office for
life; he for a term ol years but his prerog
atives, under the principles of the Virginia
Democracy, are more dangerous. The fath
ers of the Constitution were divided in opin
ion upon this question of power, and the re
cent history of the country shows that their
fears were well founded. But they were
laughed at by the Federalists. These men
did nut conceive that corrupt men would ob
tuin power and use this prerogative against
the wishes of the majority. '
Col. Allen, of Chillicotho, in his speech
at the Locofoco Mass Meeting in this city,
charged the Whig party with being in favor
of a Kiag. Like other charges, it was only
made to attract the attention of the people
from his own opinions in regard to the one
man power for in tho above extract, from n
leading Locofoco paper, is contained all that
is necessary to constitute a King, call him
what you may. He is an Instrument em
ployed to defeat, by the use of the voto
power, the will of the people, and that is
not Democracy.
And this is not all. President Polk usurp
ed another prerogative denied to him by
the Constitution, and was defended by his
entire parly. He indirectly declared war
with another nation, without the consent
of Congress. Pierce can do tho same thing
and will be defendod by the same party.
The Autocrat of Russia van do no more.
The Queen of England has no greater pow
er, The former has control of the purse;
tits latter has not. In this only dues the
Despotism of Russia differ from tho Consti
tutional Monarchy of England and the Rep
resentative Republic of the United States.
The Queen of England gots supplies by giv
ing titles to monibors of Parliament; tho
President of the United States has proved
himself equally successful by the usouf his
appointing power. Wherein do Ihey dif.
Demagogues talk about Constitutional
power whenever any measure is demanded
for the interests of the country. Whenever
protection Is askod, fur American Industry;
whenever appropriations aw .needed for the
Improvement of Rivers and I fir bora or im.
portant Internal Improvements; whenev
er grants of Land are solicited for important
public enterprises these men crow learned
and talk about Constitutional law; but the
use of the Veto power to defeat tho will of
the people, the universal proscription of all
men who do not agree in opinion with the
President, the plunging of tho country into a
War those are matters intended to advance
the interests of a particular party and about
the constitutionality of which there can be
no doubt! There is none, there can bo no
Democracy in such a party. Tho practice
is opposed to the first principles of Republi
can government, and these men arc no more
entitled to the name than tho Prince Pres
ident of Prance. Power Is what he wants,
for himself and friends; power is what Lo
cofcoism contends for, that the leaders may
have the spoils of office.
There is but one remedy for this state of
affairs, and that i with the people. Instead
of depending upon others for information, let
them seek it for themselves. Keep these
demagogue out or office, and put honest
men in their places who will not permit tho
provisions of- tlio Constitution to be violated
with Impunity. Look ol tho lives of men,
rather than their professions. He who la
bors for the improvement of tho city ami de
votes hie time and energies to the public
good, Is worthy of your support. Ho wbo
i selfish, cold and calculating in oil he due,
is not the man to entrust with power. The
former only, desires it, that he may have op
portunity to advance tho interests of ike city;
the Utter strives for it that lie msjt he per
sonally benefitted. So they are judged' by
the community. A different standard ought
not to be erected' in Slate and National af
fairs. The same rule is applicable there.
The man who is truly devoted to the ad
vancement of the public good, never thinks
of trumpeting his own fame. Consciom .-I
duty performed, he leaves his reputation in
the hands of his fellow-citlzens. But he
who is tUiviug for personal advancement,
la continually prating of his own excellenc
ies ia order to avoid a suspicion that ho is a
aelftsu and calculating man. It is such in
dividuals that usurp powcr,pcculate with the
public funds, and would as soon be under a
despotism ov a mooarchy-as RepubUd, pro
vided they have secure place.

Fraces, &.C. The venerable Editor of
the National Intelligencer bears his testimo
ny to the disgraceful Locofoco frauds which
have characterized this canvass. He says:
Through a life-long experience as con
ductor of this journal, we must aay that we
have never seen the public press so degraded
as it has been within the last 30 or 40 days,
by the propagation of the most shameless
falsehoods in regaru not on ry io me mg
candidate for the Presidency, mil to me ex
isting Adininistrstion of the Government,
which, instead of being subjected to the vil
lainous aspersions cast upon it, deserves
from everv ecod citizen the most hearty
thanks and commendation for its loyslitv to
the Constitution, the Laws, and the faith ol
Treaties, and the exertions which it has
made and is muking to sustain them ill in
full vigor. As lor the telegraphic reports
which are flying from one end of tho coun
try to the other.conceriiingthe pending par
ty contest, the safest plan is to distrust al
most everything intended to affect tho Elec
tion, as in nine times out of ten they are
not worthy of confidence.
Cheat Crop or Wheat. Mr. Apthorp.
a farmer of the town of Riga, in this cuunty ,
harvested lost Summer, o field of wheat con
taininir twelve acres, yielding over six hund
red bushels, or fifty bushels to the acrs.
Two acres and a. half, part of this field
produced at the rate of 53 bushels and some
pounds to the acre. Mr. A., has cultivated
the field in question, for the Inst twenty
eight years, raising thereon a crop of
wheat each alternate year. For the lust
four years the land has not been manured.
His mode of culture is to turn under a crop
of clover, ploughing ten inches deep, and
then keep the surface mellow and clear of
weeds by the use of the cultivator. He
ploughs but once for a crop. Tho soil is
gravelly loam, with a slight admixture of
clay. Rock. Atner.
Frightful Accident.-We learn from the
Allentown (Po.) Register, of Oct. 21st.
that a dreadful accident had occurred at the
iron ore bed of Daniel (Surtt, South White
hall township, Lehigh Co., in that Stato.
Three men were engaged in taking out ore
in one of the shafts, nt a depth ol bixty-tivi-
or seventy feet. In the morning, before they
went to work, they noticed a small crack,
but did not think it dangerous. In this be
lief they were fatally mistaken, as ubnut 10
o'clock the mass of earth gave way, about
eight feet wide, extending tho aixty-fivo or
seventy feet down to the spot where the men
were at work, and buried them to the depth
of thirty or forty foct.
Mr. August Belmont, tho agent of
the Rothschilds in New York city, nnd Aus
trian Consul General for this country, sub
scribed and paid 810,000 for the expenses ol
the Locofoco party in carrying tho election
in New York city. Several others, foreign
importers and capat Mists,' also spent large
sums for the same object. There is pretty
clear evidence that this money was furnish
ed by foreign manufacturers for this purpose.

Tits Ai.r.rro Buttoh A S.'ngukr Disease.
Tho Aleppo Button is a siogwlar ulcer,
whiuhattacks every person born in tho city
and every stranger w ho spends more than a
month there. It can neither be prevented
nor cured, and always laxts a year. The in
habitants almost invariably have it on their
face either on the cheek, forehead, or tip
of the nose where it often leaves an indel
ible and disfiguring scar. Strangers, un ihe
contrary, have it on one ofthe joints, cither
elbow, wrist, knee, or ankle. So strictly is
its visitation confided to tho city proper, that
in none of the neighboring villages, nor even
in tho distant subiiro is it known. Physi
cians have vainly attempted to prevent it by
inoculation, and are at a loss to what cause
to ascribe it. Wo ore liablo to have it, even
after Ave days stay, btt I hope it will post

I came across the country and struck our

one alive and kicking; but about two miles
from here, I heard something coming,
coughing, sneezing and thundering; so I
looked around. Sure enough, there she

she came foaming at the mouth, with her

"As no change could bo for tho Letter,
we have too much reason to dread the effects
of tho change which is to come. The a
vowed principles of the 'Young America'
party and its wild progressivcUn are in their
nature the reverse ofthe conservatism which
should guide every jut and honorable gov

of his leading advooutes, and have beeo glad
to see hiss yesterday defended in a promin

of sharing in the aggressivo and lawless

Ilocking Valley Railroad. We trnit'our
readers will bear iu mind the meeting to be
held in this city, on the 18th inst., to con.
sider the propriety of taking immediate
measures to construct a railroad from Colum-
ns down the Hocking Valley. It is, with
out doubt, a highly important connection
ud will be ofin finite advantage to the coun
try through which it will pass. It connects
at Columbus with the Lakes and opens up
below one of the best mineral regions in the
West. Tho coal and iron of the Hocking
Valley, in quality and quantity, is not sur
passed by those of any other section or Ohio.
These facts should be borne in mind by those
who discuss the question. There is a road
proposed down the Scioto Valley from Co
lumbus.but the latter is much more aeepiy
interested in the proposed one through this
city, Logan and Athens, and will therefore
join heartly in any efforts to construct it.
At least, we are so informed by those wno
are now engaged in agitating the question.
We understand the C. W.& Z. Railroad
will be located in a very short time from this
city to Zanesville, and will be put under
contract immediately. The directors are
now only awaiting the action of the friends
of the respecrive routest and will be enabled
to arrive ate definite conclusion in a few
days. The work West continues to pro
gress with considerable rapidity. ' The em
bankment over tho Hocking prairie is com
pleted, together with the grading of some
two or three miles of tho road immediately
west of this city. .
The Gersmr Vote. The Whigi of Rich

forts of a large number of our German citi

They understood that . tlieir true interests
were to support that policy which would
build up homes for them in our midst instead
of degrading labor and bringing it down to a

They therefore worked hard and wo should
certainly have been defeated in this town
ship but for their support. They are getting
upon the right ground and if the ball rolls
thus in the futuro as at this election we moy
soon expect Richland to become Whig!
