All over the land the cry of distress is
heard, aud day by day the calamity in
creases. Winter n approaching with its
cold threatening embrace, nnd the shiver
ing helpless suffering poor, are dragging
their threadbare garments about their
forms. No work, no bread, no fuel, no
money, the picture is sad and heartrend
ing. The north is shaken to its centre.
Giant merchants arc tottering, uncertain
ty, dismay, disaster and ruin broods in
ever}' northern cily. The million looms,
und spindles of the cast are stopping,and
the factory gates arc shutting out tens of
thousands of young females, and helpless
children. Strong men arc idle, aud their
'a mi lies, arc stinting close the last mcas
meal. The north is gorged to day
nco, t?"V.</o;vo\y it starves with
10 South too feels tho presure
?eiy, her crop just made is being
?erifieed, but that is a sequence follow
ing the events abroad. Yet where is
the farmer's corn crip empty, where the
emoko house stripped of bacon. Very
rare indeed if any. Tho South has her
wood in abuudauee, and a full stock of
provisions. All she wants is good gov
ernment, and an intelligent voting major
ity will give it to her. Now is the time
for the sorely pressed white man of the
north to make a home where the gener
ous soil, and favorable climate will bring
them a future of comfort und competency.
There is plenty of land, and n lull wel
come for every honest minded immigrant.
TIjE thutji of a docthlxeaxd its
Running back over the page of history
for centuries^that have passed, now gild
ed with eras of advancement, and again
blurred with scenes of vandalism, the
mind detects a majority immersed in
ignorance, and a small minority enjoying
enlightenment. It is reasonable to infer
that the only hope for the masses, was
drawn from the thinking few, for the
benefit of the thoughtless many. #An
accretion of knowledge has been steadily
piled up ngainst every opposition, thus
spreading a benefit for man's general im
provement. Tho fact that knowledge is
inseparably connected with human hap
piness, has not always been admitted by
philosophers. There have been, and arc
now those who did, and would dissociate
the truth of a doctrine, from its utility.
Dogmas are some times considered
advantageous to society, and especial
ly to politicians, which though false
in every feature, contended, for and
held, by any argument, fallacious and
cunning, merely because a pecuniary
benefit is the result of their prorogation.
Mnchiavcl in his day, labored hard to
inculcate error for it3 expediency, and
the young Greek held the pain of being
gnawed by the fox nt his vitals, less than
the shame of rh lection in being unable to
conceal a theft. The attainment of scien
tific research in every department, wheth
er incited directly by a desire to discover
truth, or to controvert revelation, has
invariably proven an ally to train, in
that the limit of investigation, fulls far
short of tho comprehension of tho subject
under investigation. Hence fallacious
theories, fallacious only when they opposo
rcveh?tion,are if propagated a source of an
endless variety of reasonings, and doubts,
which ar'o presented under an hundred
phoses of apparent truth, bolstered only
by th.ir own specious arguments, and
satisfactory only to the ideas of tho in
terested theorist. A fallacy if popular,
and remunerative is at deadly animosity
with ull that opposes it. The fate of
Galileo is as common to day in wish, at
least, ns it was in his day in net. Tyranny
is the handmaid of false-isms,and cruelty
is the argument of tyranny. Tho com
parative immunity of tho present age
from religious persecution, may he owing
more to a concession to an evangelical
encness of sentiment for expediency,than
to a preponderating charity on the part
of the stronger, for tho weaker sects.
Heresy and errors aro spared the rough
handling of torture to extirpate them,
more because it is not policy, than be
cause of a higher, grade cf religious morals
than existed in the days of the martyrs.
If this he a mero presumption, why the
growing tendency on tho part of every
sect, to set up its only correct fingerposts
an the only right roads, ignoring the plat
form of a common faith having in view a
common goal. An established church
mpremecy, grafted again upon national
protection, would merge the spiritual
urns of religion with tho paying proper
tics of tho world, and opposing creeds
would experience the human nature of
persecution, as fierce and malignant as in
the days of Huss. If the religious world
is then not rooted in tho bonds of peace,
upon a subject which to its partisans has
reference to a common gain hereafter,
liow shall the political world, which offers
it best the "bauble reputation" ard is
ill nloug beset with "gift bearing Greeks"
be reconciled to any policy looking to
general good. It is not that civilization
is expanding too much light, that science
absorbs the attention of the mind to tho
exclusion of other thoughts promotive of
happiness; that truth is a myth; and
morality a failure ; No! Knowledge is
essential to the correctness of practice,
science when not used to discover for
man, any other destiny than his account
ability here and hereafter, enhances his
appreciation of his present, and future,
and Truth must exist coeval with man's
dignity, and cannot like a chattel be
Bwoppcd for gain. The failure to har
monize any scheme for man's general
advancement, and harmonious cxistenco,
is found in the qualities of his teachers
and rulers. Lot the places of power be
filled with the corrupt and base, who
gather around them their kind, where
honors, rewards and bribes aro spread
out to hush the infamy of the degraded
officials, and where every element oi worth
and virtue is pushed aside to give place
to the time serving sycophant, arid wdierc
those who know the right hut for pay
choose the wrong, then must the scene he
one of chaos, and the verdict he shame.
Guizot says: "La premiere nfTuiro du
gouvernment, e'est de chcrchcr cettc
verite, de decouvrir qui est juste, rnison
able, cc qui convient a la socictc'."
The first business of our government
is to search for hitter parlizans, and these
mnke friends with those who value profit
more than principle. Such is the utility
of its doctrine, the truth of it is not con
AT THE CAPITOL.
The word "Babel" is a fit term to
apply to legislative doings,
Whittcmoro offered a bill practically
to repudiate $5,9G5,000 of the conver
sion bonds. Hurley, Bowcn and Boston
all agree that "the party" is used up if
something is not done to save it. The
Governor's appointments have made
him enemies of his own household. A
split has occurred of Moses and anti-Mo
ses men. The decision of tho Supreme
Court respecting the hills of the Bank of
the State, is a bombshell among the So
lons. Senator Andrews of Orangehuvg
offers the following to delay the cuds of
tho decision :
Whereas, the recent decision of the
United Supremo Court, in the matter of
the hills of tho Bonk of tho State, is; cal
culated to work a disastrous financial
ruin unless the same can bo delayed in
its operation or averted therefore* be it.
Resolved by tho Senate, theJKousc
of Representatives concurring, Tflgi, in
accordance with said decision, the?tsaid
hills of tho Bank of the State ho, aud
they are hereby, declared a legal tender
for any taxes that may bn duo the State,
and the State and county treasurers are
hereby required to receive tho |amo
therefor, hut none other than the genuino
bills; and that, in order to asccriain
which are genuine, no hill or representa
tion of the issue of the Bank of this State
shall be received hi the this State, or by
anj county treasurer? in payment of|
taxes, until the samo shall have passed
through the office of the comptroller-gen
eral ; there stamped as genuine, and for
tho purpose of carrying out this resolu
tion, on expert Bhall bo employed, with
a salary to be fixed by law, whoso duty it
shall be to examine said bills and decide
upon tho genuiueness of the same.
The Blue Ridge Scrip, and Governor's
Bills receivable aro shaky jobs. The

nngeburg was sent iu for confirmation as
