The Work Cioes Ilrnvcly On.
We, yesterday, published the resolu
tions adopted, last week, in Philadelphia,
at a meeting of the friends of the
Union. To-day we take occasion to lay
before our reader* similar resolutions,
passed at a meeting of the opponents of
Aholiliouistn, convened in Hoston on
Thursday last. This assemblage is rep
resented to have been the largest, most
respectable, enthusiastic and patriotic
ever convened in the "Cradle of Liber
ty." It was presided over by E.x-Gov
EIINOR
LINCOLN, EX-JOVI:KNOK
EX-CIOVEKNOK
MOKTUN,
Ci.iKroifii, KX-IOVKKNOI:
lii iuus, Ex-GoVKII\oii G.VUDNKK and
other equally eminent friends ol the
Uniou. This was another of what the
Abolition press ot this region ot the
Confederacy would call an assemblage of
"doughfaces," '"lickspittles," ''Union
•Avers," and "terror engendered.''—
When such contemptible panders to
the spirit of fanaticism as are the editors
of that clats of public journal* who
have spoken of John Hrown and his in-
i.juitoiii plat in terms of apology an
who have endeavored to lessen the ab
horrence for the man and his crimcs, by
attributing his foray to insanity, origi
nating from personal wrongs of which
ho had been the victim, read the resolu
tion, they should hide their heads in
shame. The following are the resolu­
tions
lit'Solrcd, That as citizens ot thccom
monwenlth of Massachusetts, forgetting
none ot the common trials, sacrifices,
and efforts by which our nat otial inde
pendence was secured, and our national
compact established, we desire to t-eizc
this opportunity to renew and to repeat
the feehngs winch bind us to our siater
Stites and to the Federal Union.
Resolved, That the people of Massa
chusetts, however many of them have
been misled into extravagant opiirons
and action,are nevertheless well disposed
in general to obey the laws, to maintain
order and good government, to respect
mutual rights and obligations, and to
dia prove whatever influences lead in
acoirrary direction and we regret that
the main body of our tizens, to much
through the neglect of their political du
ties, have been often falsely exhibited in
the eyes uf the nation, by tho'e whose
Councils and conduct do rot command
the general approbation.
Ji woltnl, That we look with indigna
tion and abhorrence upon the recent in
vasion of the commonwealth of Virgin
ia that however narrow, or however
comprehensive was the clandestine and
iniquitois scheme, in its instruments or
its execution, it was an undisgu sod as
sault upon the peace and welfare of the
whole country that we deeply sympa
th i/e with the people of Virginia in the
trying scencs which they have been
cilled to pass through anil proffer them
and their civil authorities, and those of
the federal government, our unfailing
countenance and support in tho main
tiinmcc of the laws of the land and
public peace,
Jicsulvt d, That generous lovcof coun
try is the noblest patsion whi :h can an
imate the soul of a eit zen in a free
State and that the opposite sentiment,
so zealously propagated of late by the
fanatical ministers of a false philanthro
py, is fatal to the public peace, honor
and welfare, and deserve tho severest
reprobation ot every true American.
JicsoL'fd, That the advantages and
priveleges, through the blessings of Di
vine Providence, enjoyed by the people
of this couutrv, are unparalleled in the
history of nation* that we can be de
priv .'ii of them only by our own want of
a due sense of their value and that in
testine dimension, so often the bane of
ancient and modern States, can alone
expose us to the danger of losing po«ses
eions so inestimable.
Resolved, That tho unchangeable
Union ot these States is indispensable
to the prosperity and glory of each and
of all, and even to our continued exist
ence as a civilized and enlightened na
tion and that, in leagua with our patri
otic brethren throughout the Union, we
solemnly pledge ourselves to uphold it
with *'our lives, our fortunes and our sa
cred honor*."
iUtolvtdi That we profoundly honor
and chcrish the Constitution of the
United States for the consummate wis
dom ai• I liberality of it* just and ealu
Ury provtMoiiH that we are roolvvdto
iiiHUitain tint great chartor (T our liber
ties :ind sa'i'tv by all lir.nc.raMo means,
and faithfully and unreervediy to carry
out alt it* obligations an 1 requirement*.
The foregoing resolutions breathe the
true feelings of the American heart.—
They are eloquent denunciations of the
base spirit which has been exhibited in
every section of the North by the cx
tenuatois ot the crimes of old lirown,
and of the infamous principles which
they avow. They are the true exponent
of that unpervcrted Northern sentiment
which will sweep from the halls of legis
lation, as with a besom of destruction,
a large majority ot the fanatics who now
occupy them. It is most fortunate that
the developments of the last two montliB
have directed public attention to the
conspiracies and conspirators against tlu
institutions of the country. These great
movements of the masses in the North
ern cities will extend their influence in
every direction, until the whole Noith
will have become thoroughly imbued
with like patriotic feelings.
This outpouring of the people of
Uoston was eloquently addressed by
IIox.

HON.
CA-
LEU CisniNii, names held in high esti
mation by every true American. We
would be gratified if our space- would
permit the publication in our columns of
the speeches of these distinguished rtates
mcn. In their addresses these gentle
men took the view of the question which
has been held by the Democratic press
®f the North. Mr. Everett said
It is my own deliberate conviction,
formed fioiu some opportunities of per
sonal observation, and from friendly
correspondence with other parts of the
country, (though I carry on none of a
political nature,) that we arc on the very
verge of a convulsion which will shake
the Union to its foundation and that a
few more steps forward, ill the direction
in which affairs have moved for a few
years past, will bring us to the catas
trophe.
We suppose our neighbor will stig
matize Mr. Kverctt as a terror engen
dercr." But the people of the North
will not be diverted from their purpose
of taking from the hands of those who
inteud evil the poieer to accomplish it.
The temporary ascendency which the
liepiiblicau party has gained in certain
Stales will be speedily reveised just as
soon as the people have an opportunity
of doing so through the ballot-box.
Kvery man of the community knows
fill well, that, were it not for the coali
tion between the old Abolition and the
newer Republican party,the former would
be impotent for harm. It is from the
irrepressible conflict" promised and
proclaimed by the Abolitionized Repub
lican party of the North, that the coun
try has everything to fear. Safety re
quires that that organization should be
disarmed, and the people have Oftlaiaed
that it shall be efiecte I.
Washington Monument*
We are informed that tho managers
of the Washington National Monument
Society have resolved to appeal to each
of the sovereign states of tho Uuion, to
join in the completion of the National
Monument to Washington,and that they
have addressed memorials to several of
the stales.
California has already voluntarily con
tributed her aid by an annual appropri
ation in favor of this noble work and
we most sinccrcly trust that her older
sisters of the Union will liberally res
pond to the address of this society, and
that the United States of America, will
redeem the character of our country from
the stain reeting upon it, that no tit
memorial has yet been erected to testify
.the love, gratitude and veneration of
America for the man who stands first in
her scroll of patriots and statesmen. We
most heartily and earnestly second this
society in their appeal, and donbt not
that each state will cordially embrace
this opportunity of accomplishing a na
tional and patriotic work.— TFtwAiiytoa

equally gratifying to the merchant whose
ledger shows an ample balance on the

crops are all gathered, and who sits by
his tire-side and enjoys his nuts and ap

reg. rdless of Wm. 11. Seward's "biu'al
and bloody manifesto," and the "irre
pressible conflict."
Sleigh-riding is a favorite amusement
with the inhabitants of this locality du
ring the winter season, and "Whisky
Skins" appear to be the universal bev
erage. While in search of a cigar and a
place to warm ray feet, after a long ride
wn a cold, winter's day, I entered a bar
room in which was assembled a motley
group of bipeds, who were talking very
loud, smoking ba4 cigars, and drinking
"whisky skins."
There is a peculiar method of con
cocting and imbibing this popular bev
erage, which I then and there observed.
The publican pours some whiskey into
a tumbler, to which he adds a little hot
water, then a little sugar, then a little
stirring about and ramming down with
an extensive flourish and a little wood
en rammer, and then the "skin" is prop
erlv prepared the imbiber, after eject
ing a huge quid of tobacco and a cop ous
stream of juice, throws back his head,
takes it oil' in a single gulp, without so
much as even winkii g, and thus the
"skin" is finally disposed of.
A round faced man with a fur cap and
a red nose, entered the bar-room blow
ing his fingers, and having volunteered
the assertion that it was a "devilish co'd
^ay," stepped up to the bar and called
for a wh sky skin then a thin faced
inau, with a sharp nose and a seal skin
cap and C( at, came in, repeated the as
seition of the previous gentleman,
stepped up to the bar aud called for a
wiskey skin then a conspicuous gentle
man, who glorified in tho appellation of
"big Hen," and who was warming his
shins befoie the stove, turned round to
the bar and exclaimed "Look here,
Jake, you may as well give me one of
them there whisky skins then a liber
al gentleman who wanted to create a
sensation asked "the crowd" to take
"something," and each and eveiy indi
vidual member of the crowd took a
whisky skin
I have turned this subject ox%g care
fully in my mind, and have come to the
conclusion that if skins arc at all scr
viccable in keeping out the cold, no

Wheat Next Spriug.
Every one expects that wheat will
bring a good price next spring, and the
probabilities certainly seem to point that
way, but still t*ere are several causes
which may operate to check a very de
cided advance. The wheat cr«p in the
eastern and middle, as well as the south
crn st ates, which was unusually la^ethia
year, has not as yet been marketed, ow
ing to the unsatisfactory prices of the
past fall. This wheat in addition to the
vast quantity that is held back in the
west, and stored in warehouses during
the winter for speculative purposes, will
all be thrown upon tho market en the
opening of navigation next spring. It
is incredible that the vast quantities ot
wheat which have gone east is all con
sumed. A great deal of it, doubtless,
has been put into flour, with a view to
shipment when the spring opens.
It would be a very intesesting fact to
discover how much of the wheat of the
west has fonr.d its way to market. Our
impression is that full one-half of the
wheat of the west is still in the lia: da of
the first holde s or in local warehouses,
subject to the orders of tho farmers. In
this country there is not so much as that
nor is there in any locality in the north
west that is highly favored with rail
roads, as they arc a constant temptation
to sellers to part with their wheat, but
in the back settlements, out of the reach
of competing railroad lines, we have no
doubt but that much wheat is still stored
to be called out only as a speculative de
mand. V\ heat now brings a good price
and farmers would do well to remem
ber the old adage, "a bird in the hand
is worth two in tbe bush."—i^dl/orc/

A wiitcr who has access to the books
of tho Sub-Treasury, in New York,
where the interest on about seven-eighths
#f the debt of the Untied States is paid,
UPyfc
These books are a enrious study.—
Many of the names they contain are
household Words. Some are the names
of Europeans others of West Indians,
and even Asiatics. Barely a third of
the pur lie debt is held in this country.
The bulk of it, we imagine, is held in
continental Europe. One is net sur
prised to find the names of John J.
As
tor, Wm. B. Astor, Jacob Little,
George Peanody, and such men, in tbe
list of the creditors of the United States,
but they and their countrymen are iu a
minority.
The heaviest foreign creditor we no
ticed is Lord Overstone, (the famous
John Lloyd,) who has let this country
no less than $350,000. A Spanish lady,
Merced de Lascca, is our creditor to the
tune of $200,000, and a noble friend of
hers, Count Casa Montlovoy Gastillo,
draws s per cent, on $100,000. Sev
eral persons connected with the royal
families of Europe are creditors of ours.
The bi other of the King of Naples
took $50,000 some years ago, and in
structed his agent to invest the dividends
as they accrued, in the same security.—
He now owns over $75,000. Ilis niece,
the daughter of Bomba, is registered as
a creditor for over $50,000. These wise
people have been looking out for a rainy
day. A nothcr noble personage, the late
Duchess of Orleans, has enough in the
United States sixes to save the Count
of Talis from being compelled to follow
his grandfuther's example and keep
BCIIOOI. Several of the Saxe Coburg
Gothas have also invested in the same
country.
The Count Rossi saw enough of this
country while he was here, to invest a
few thousands in the famous name ot
Soutag and little l'aul Julien has a tri
fle—enough to keep him when his vio
lin fails. One can readily account for
the appearance of the name ot tbe
llothschilds, both ot London and Paris
but it is curious that the famous publish
er, Panchouke, of Paris, is a creditor of
the United States and that the dra
matic author, Soribe, lia9 also invested
enough to give him nearly 10,000 francs
a year. A careful study of democracy
in America appears to have persuaded
Monsier de Tocqticville to lodge ssme
of his savings in the hands of our Gov
ernment and Lord Macaulay, who be
gan with a bagatelle of some $5,000, has
s.nce increased his venture to nearly
*30,000.
Iiut we shall never end if we attempt
to enumerate all the people who have
their money placed in the United States
securities* llere are Lord Dundonald,
the great sailor, who has a large sum for
a son of Neptune the Priucc de Beau
vcan, the Couut de Narbonne, Sir John
Bayley, the Marquis of Champagne, Bar
ing Brothers, Count de Beaumont, Gen.
Bcrmoloff, and a ho?t of titled people,
who, perhap*, depend upon the solvency
of the United States Government for a
living. Lnrd Elgin saw enough of us
to leave $17,000 of his savings in our
six per cents and the famous Russian,
Alexandre Lleizen, has a bagatelle of
$*0,000 in the same security. There is
another creditor whose name is a curi
osity. It runs thus Baron Louis Nutua
Kpaminondas Justidian Aristides Decins
Salis llaldenstein Lichenstein Gorten
stein. Fancy a man with such a name
drawing twer.tv-six dollars and fifty
cents from tbe United States.
FkKTll.lZIN 1*110PEN"SIT.ES FROM THE
AIM.—A quantity ot'ammonia and nitric
acid, equa1, perhaps on an acre, to one
hundred pounds of guano, is annually
brought down to the soil by the rain,for
the benefit of vegetation. Let not, how
ever, the farmer deceive himself, aud
imagine that he may indulge io idle re
pose, while nature is thus keeping up
the fertility of his lands. But he may
profit by this newly discovered bounty
of nature, if lie will take full advantage
of the atmospheric manure by means of
drainage, which promote* the equal
tiow of water through instead of over his
foil by deep cultivation of the land,
which brings every part of it in contact
with the air. The atmosphere is to the
fanner like the sea to the fisherman—he
who spreads hia nets the widest will
catch the most.
A
HANDSOME MANTEL
ORNAIIEVT.
A11 acorn suspended by a piece of thread
within half an inch of thesutface of the
water in a hyacinth glass, will, in a few
month', burst and throw a root down
into the water, and shoot upwards its
straight and taporing stem, with beauti
ful little green leaves. A young oak
t'Cf, growing in this way on the mantle
shelfof a room, is a very elegant and in
terest1ng object.
