We are elad lo see that attention will be drawn towards llieui in our large cities, To call these painttnga beautiful, or ex pressive, or merely to say that they will repay the visitor is not to do them, tho artist, or his conceptions, ihe justice which they merit.

In 1844, we the Democrat" ic parly, had for our rnnllo on our liar's Polk and ihe tariff of 13-12. I knew noth ing of Mr. Polk, but Ihe Tariff of 1S42 suited me. and as a good Democrat 1 vo ted for it. I have done the sar'e this year 1 have voted for what I called gi .aj dem ocratic doctrine, though it is called Wing doctrine; against the Tariff ot '46 and for ihe Tariff of IS 12. My old democratic as sociates have cheated me once lhat was their fault -if they Cheat me again, it will bo mine. So make mo a coat of tho.
