There is, perhaps, no word in the political vocabulary more frequently used by the locofo co press than the one whicli figures at the head of this article. To the 'democratic' ear it cm bodya the import of all the phrases expressive of avarice or peculation our language furnish es. It was the watchword during the canvass which resulted in the election of Franklin Pierce. It waa the only argument foundin the mouths of locofoco demagogues. Kvery stump ora tor on that side of the question must incorpo rate it into his harangue ; find every locofoco editor must emblazon it in his columns. No one was considered qualified to vote who could not pronounce it flippantly no one was an or thodox locofoco who did not use it frequently. But it is a stubborn fact that not one of the thous ands who use it can tell why it should be odi ous ; no one dare risk his reputation in decla ring that the Uulphin claim should not have been paid. There can be but one reason assigned for (hu universal use of the word amon: the locofocos; und that is that the claim was paid by a whig . j-:-: skax. .... 1 Z administration. This is the only reason why it ii considered odious by modern democrats. A more gross and transparent humbug never was practiced upon the credulity of nny poor delu ded people than this same (ialphin humbug, as I . m I r 1 j tl e - 1c 1 played on ny locoioco leaaer on me ninn nnu file. Call upon nny one of those who made such free use of the term, and no one of ihemi could tel you why wings are censurable on nc-! . 1 1 count of it.

In fact no good reason can be given why it should not have been paid ; nor have locofoco editors tlie hardihood to take such a position. But suppose there was anything wrong in the payment thereof, who nre to blame in the prem ises ? A locofoco Congress passed a bill au thorizing its payment. They diclare that the heiis of George (ialphin were entitled to a cer tain amount 01 money a long lime ago. ihey, in effect, say that the said heirs have been un justly kept out of their money for many years that it should have been paid long ago, nnd that it must be forthwith paid. In pursuance of this enactment the claim, with its interest, was paid. Now will any locofoco say that the claim should not have been paid ? We submit this proposition. Tin; (ialphin claim was a just one, imd the government did right in paying it. We would like to see the lo cofoco who will join issue with us on this ques tion. If any such be found, we will ngree with him to vote for the next locofoco candidate for the Presidency, if ho will furnish one single, solitary good reason why it should not have been paid. If they cannot do so the instincts of gentlemen should prompt them to be silent hereafter. It certainly betrays a low stnto of political integrity and fair dealing, to ride a bobby, whose foundation is a base deception. It is sup posing that the people nre easily humbugged 10 continue to ride it after all its legs are bro ken and it is supported by broken sticks. We have, heretofore, shown that the locofoco hue and cry about this matter was all for gammon, and we trust no intelligent man will condescend to believe there is anything odious expressed j by the word Galphinism, until locofocos who use th term make it appear so by sound argu- ment.

We hate just received a full and authentic account of a terrible shipwreck which occurred on the Pacific coast on the ICth of February last It appears that on the morning of that fatal day, shortly before daylight, the steamer struck a tisr ana immediately stopped, oil the coast ot lower Ualiloinia. Ihc captain, who was captain st-inding on the wheel-house at the time, or deied the engineer to back, and when the en gine went into reverse motion the ship left the bar without any trouble. In a few minutes the whole of the crew, numbering 3'24, were on deck, most of them in their night clothes. As soon as the vessel was backed into deep wa ter, the captain gave secret orders to sound the pumps, when it was discovered that there were seven or eight feet of water in the hold. This fact could not lonir be concealed, and when it was discovered by the passengers a 6cene of confusion, more easily imagined than de sciibcd, took place on board. The captain thought the ship could be kept afloat for some time, and determined to run upon the beach at the fust convenient opportunity. Her head . . was accordingly turned up the coast and a great quantity of dry wood put into the furnace, and u Kov nf uinm ,n - 1 mm. der which the ship flew like an nrrow along a hiifb, rock-bound coast for about five miles, when a deep ravine, leading from the water in- less expenditures of tlis past two years increas to a sandy beach upon the island, was discov- ed your taxes ; or, what amounts to the same pred.

As the flames advanced the sufferers were driv en off into the water, and every serf came to the shore freighted with corpses or half drown ed men, women and children. To add to the teirific scene the flames had now communica ted to the powder magazine, which exploded with it tremendous crash, splintering the stern; while the guns, surrounded by the flames, sent their solemn booming over the scene. Those who were fortunate to get within reach of their friends on shore were dragged, half dead, out of the reach of the surf, while others drifted far out into the sea and perished. At one moment not less than thirty bodies were .. .. e ,! . I e ., .1 .1 . on the edge oi me sun, uivesteu oi cioining. Sixteen out of eighteen Jews, who were on board, were dragged down by the weight of the coin they were trying to save. The officers and sailors behaved most man fully. Some of these noble fellows, disregard ing their own Bufety, took children and women in their nrms, or lashed them fo their persons, and thus attempted to save them. Several of them nre known to have sacrificed their lives , in this manner. We have not the space to re cord the many instances of courage nnd self sacrifice of which the papers give accounts. Among the most conspicuous is that of a Mr. ! Tarr, who lost his life in attempting to save the ; lifu of a boy. They came to shore together both drowned.

A mountain ni.nr hv onn Htc..nrnn1 , Magdn.efia bay about fifteen miles distant, with several whalers floating on her bright bosom. They descended to tho beach, and, as soon as the sea would permit, went to the hull of the wrecked steamer, slung one of the cannons, found a keg of powder, carried them to the top of the mountain, and tired twice to attract the attention of the whalers. The tiring had the desired effect. While this was going on some of the men earned a boat over the island and launched it. When the whalers neared the beach they boarded them and told their sad story. The remainder of the company soon crossed the island and were well laktn sare of by their rescuers. Among the incidents of the day, after the w,eck, a child was born which is still living and doing ;well. A wealthy Chilian gentleman, finding himself driven into the waves by the flames, turned to a few who were standing near him and offered $60,000 to any one who would aid him in saving his life ; but at snch a mo ment no one could think of the offer. Seeing ,1,,,, - . , .... ;, ttiat his end was near, he said "rarewell, it is , . . , , . ,, only once ! and plunged into the water. He was soon drowned.
