The Ilnrriaburg correspondent of the Philadelphia Argus sends the following deapntrh: Hamusbuho, Jan. 14, 1857. Menenr, of York, openly honnta thnt he re ceived $8,000 for votins fur Cameron.

During th ten day prevlou to New Yearn, ther were re ceived in New York city an average of 300 tons of poultry a day, making 3000 tons or 4,000,000 pounds of turkeys, geese, ducks, chicken, and game birds. A Phfktual Govrrriir. It seem thnt ' owing to the blundering of the Inst Legisla ture of Si ississippi, that Stale has a perpetual Governor. Th Nstchez Free Trader of Tu esdsy last says: "In his 1st message o the legislature on this su'njecl, which we publish thia morning, Governor McRae iv thnt he I Governor for life. W should have no objection to hla being Governor of MiNNiNaippI lor many yeara to come; but th organ io law of the Stale provide thnt the Governor (hall be elected very two yeara. But it seems thst the botch work of th Legislature, of 1854, in submit, ting chsnges to the Constitution have man aged to make the term of gnvernorship per pelual, and n one can teil when the official teim of the Judges and members ot the le gislature will expire. The whole affair is in mud, and for ourself we can't see who is to decide the point in question." Irtcmpcrarcc ahd Ipecac A writer In the London Lancet ny: ' "I would recommend ipecacuanha a remedy for drunkenneen, taken in half drachm doses as sn emetic. Ipecasiianha ha the extrnordinnry property of atinmlating the whole svslem, equalizing the circulation, pro- Uloting the Various secretions, ana inaeea assisting each orgnn of the body to perform it function, and restore it to iis normal stile. Ipecacuanha can be taken with perf. ct snfety aaan emetic. I believe the administration of hslf s drachm of Ipecacuanha, as nn emetic, to be s cure for periodical drunkenness. It is observed, thnt in the intervals between the period of these attacks, the pvrton ia quite sober, nnd oftea renminssn for two, three or four months, or for longer time. When the mnnia cornea oo. the intense of desire for alcoholic atimulua is ao strong n to render the sufferer subject to no control, nnd from the aeiHntinn of depreasion and sinking, he can look upon alcholio stimulants as his only remedy. When a person is in this state, it will always be found thnt his stomach is si fault, and the unnatural appetite nrises from that eanse alone; if half a drachm of the powder of ipecacuanha can be taken so as to produce full vomiting, the desire for intoxi cating stimulus is immedinjely removed. "From the experience I hnve had of the effects of ipecacuanha, I am of opinion, if a patient can be peraunded to follow up the emetic plan for a few limes, when the peri odical attack comes or., that he will be per fectly cured, end the hai.lt (lor such I look upon it) will be broken." Rowdyism. The New Orleans papers give horrible sccounts of the crime and ruffi mism of that citv. "Well dressed young puppies," as the Delta styles them, have become ao bold in villainy that they scruple not to in vade fairs and insult the Indies nnd bully the men. When seen by dny light these rnffinna sre generally young men who have all the outward appearance of gentility. But when protected by darkneaa of night, Ihey perpe trate the moat cold blooded Crimea of murder and robbery with the hardihood of the most nccompliHhed highwaymen. Other South western cities complain of the snme dangerous snd unsafe state of affairs, nnd the doings of the California Vigilance Committee are spo ken of as deeds of merit and justice. Sugar Aoais In this country the con. sumption of sugar averages nlinoxt 30 pounds a head to the population. In the best season, under the most favorable circiimxtances, the home production has not equalled one half the consumption. For one half, then, that is, for 450.000 000 of pound. In the heat or seasons, we have been obliged to depend on foreign countries, paying thirty per cent taxation. At this time, allowing ihnt the home supply will not reach 200.000.000 pounds nnd nssuming thnt our population is almost 38,000,000. we need some 640,000,000 pounds Iroin abroad nnd on thia, ton, we niiixt be taxed 30 per cent., while our Treas. ' ury is so full, that we do not know whnt to do with the money. What n wise people we are taking money out oi our Own pockets, and sending it to nn Iron Safe1 at Washing ton, to etimuUta tiie greed of plunderers! Nat. Era. The following nre the salaries of tho State officers of Mixsissippi, prescribed in the code bill regulating the snme, which has passed the Senate; Governor, 84,000; Judges of the High Court, provided said Judges hold their Courts at least nine months in the year, 93,500; Chancellor of the Stat. , $3,500; to each of the Vice Chancellors for the Northern nnd Southern Districts, S3.000; Vice Chan cellor of the Middle District, f 1,000; each Circuit Judge, 93.500; Attorney General, 93,000; each District Attorney, 91.600; Sec retary of Stole, 93,000; State Auditor, 93,000 State Treasurer, 93,000. A Dubious Hospitalitt The New York Mirror gives the following item in reference lo an affair where prudence and hospitality were blended in rather an amhiguoua man ner: "At a large nnd rather promiscuous party up town the other night, (one thousand invi tations having been issued,) the host exhibit ed the latest novelty of the season. Two policemen in uniform were stationed nt the entrance of tho supper room. Whether this display wss necessary to keep 'Young New York' in order, or to prevent the mysterious disappearance of silver, is not known. Neith er explanation is complimentary to the guests." St. liOUis. A Germnn paper published in St. I'iii .called the Anzeiger des Weston, snvs thnt the constituent part of the popula tion of city nnd county of SI. Louis, ns ascer tained by the resent census, may be estima ted th ii: Americans, 38000; Germans, 60, 000; Irish, 36,000; French, 4,000; English nnd Scotch, 5,000; Italians, Spanish, snd oilier na tions, 6,000; BnhemlMiK, 5,000. These statistics explain the anomaly of the election of a Freesoiler for a Southern city to Congress. There is no other city in a Southern State In which the foreign vote ia greater than the native born. In St. I-ouis, aa theae figures show, the foreign born pop ulation preponderates in the ratio of thret lo one, and the foreign voters are known to be mostly of the Frcesoil wing of the Democ racy hence th election of F. P. Blair to Congress. gy-Tlie editor of the Woonsocket Pstri ol relates Ihnt sn nld Shanghai hen of his had been "setting" for five or six week upon two round alonea and a piece of brick! "Her nxiety," quoth he, "la no greater than oura to know what she will hutch. ' If it proves to be a brickyard, thnt hen is not for sale." Time alone will hnv to Ull what the hen will bring forth, for no professor of oology is considered sufficiently astute to determine opon it. The contents of the nest msy be very good for "rocks," but rnther "bad eggs," defying even the power ofth Yankee steam hatching machine. t3TTh Auguataand Savannah Railroad laat year paid 91,035,90 for stock killed on th line of their road. A burial society has recently commenced In the county of Lancaster, the first printed article of which run thus: 'That whereat ninny person find it difficult to bury Ihm xhit.' ' THE NECESSITY FOR AN AMERICAN PARTY Were we to choose name for a political party to which to attack ourselves, it should be thnt of American. W know of no desig. nation more appropriate. It suggests nt once an idea of tha character and designs of the party to which we eonld give our most un wavering snd conscientious support In doing this, we should not lose, but ' maintain our charncter ns nn Independent journalist For the word Americ n includes the complex ides of popular rights and personal Indepen dence. The notion of American principles and an American policy dates back to the Revolution aod even ita germ ia found in the struggles of our ancestors for civil liberty and personal rights long anterior to that great epoch. But it ia lo the Declaration of Independence, to the Articlea of Confederntion between the Old Thirteen Colonies, to the Constitution of the Uiiited States, to the administration of the earlier Presidents, George Washington, John Adams and Thomas Jeffersofl, and especially, to the Farewell Address of the first snd the first Inaugural of the Inst, that we must look for the ascertainment, not of nn ideal perfec tion in political ethics, but of the true thor ough American policy. Now it is to this policy we desire to bring back' or rather to bring op our Government, and there is, in the present cri s, a strong and urgent necessity fur a National party thai shall labor for this great end, nnd this alone. The great majority of the Americnn people are in heart truly American, nnd indissolubly wedded to the policy upon which the Union was inaugurated by the Declaration of Inde. pendence.nnd afterwards consolidated by our National Constitution. An Amirican party having this policy inscribed upon its bnnner, must necessarily, ns soon ns its principles and objects sre understood, embrace the grent body of the Americnn people. The forces of such party, when once consolidated nnd brought to bear in a political contest must be overwhelming and secure certain triumph overall opposition. There nre in our country two sectional parties, one of which is now in power and the other seeking to overthrow it and to hold the aame position. The triumph of either is not a triumph of the whole Union, but of a section, nnd the continued contest between tlie two will, in the end, unless patriotism interpose, rend our glorious confederation . . .... . ,,,, asunder. I nsipniriniism must oe emooaiea in s party which ahnll Ignore nil mere geo graphical lines, and shall recognise the broad principles of concession nnd conservatism upon which our Government wna originally founded, and by which nlone it enn be main tained. It will not do to wait until, these sectional strifes shnll hnve involved the coun try in civil war, aa Ihey hnve ulrendy been on the very verge of doing. Patriotic men who love the principle of Washington nnd Jeffer son, must unite now before it is too Inle, nnd remain united in one consolidated American party. The Democratic party owed its many suc cesses mainly to the fact thst it wna consid ered a Union pnrty. It could boast thnt It united the North nnd the South. The people saw or thought they saw, that this was so, and rallied to the support of the Union fur the sake of the Union. But thnt party hna now become decidedly sectional, being driven into ihnt poaition, partly by the issues sprung upon it by its Republican opponents, nr.d partly from the corruption snd want of co hesion among Its own members. It is true this party succeeded nt the late Presidential election, hut the victory only showed ita weakness. It was but a spasmodic effort that is the unfailing precursor of utter pros tration. Shnll the other sectional pnrty be permitted to triumph over this weak and disbanded one, and thua keep the Free and Slave Suites in perpetual collision, until the contest ends in civil wnr nnd the separation of these States into two distinct nationalities! Because the Presidential campaign is over,ad a political lull ha supervened, American must not ground their arms. Now Is the lime to or ganize in wards, school districts, townships, counties nnd States, nnd to take effective means for diffusing over the country the true principles of the American parly, and for uniting in one great Union party nil patriotic nnd devoted followers of George Washington nnd Thomns Jefferson. Puritanism Reviving. The Mnssnchu aetto State Board of agriculture hnve unani mously adopted report on tha subject of horse racing nt agricultural fairs. The report deelnres that ngriculturnl societies should refrain hereafter from offering premiums upon equestrian exhibition such exhibition be. ing in no ense to be regnrded aa agricultural products, and should also ndopt every means requisite to divest them of the appearance of horse-racing. The speed in any trial of horses, it is suggested, should be limited to a mile in four minutes. 3fFiinny Fern is nrf uing against matri monial advertisement, nnd justly say: .

Whnt' the rosUert arayour frienda all dead ? No well, have you lost every cent you owned! no are your children sick ! Is your husband cross! have you got the tooth-ache, or the head schs or heart ache! Neither of theae and atill aa cross a a yoong bear ! W wonder how your family can endure your presence! These young hearts whose sun you ought to be how you chill them with your frown and pettishness! No wonder they long to get out of the house. And now you hare struck your little child because "he would not stop teasing." Friend I that blow full on his soul snd left in indelible scar there. He will feel It long after he haa forgotten 'rt Many year from now, when your head has laid low In the grave, that blow, given without cauae impatiently, angrily, will do Us work. f Why can't you be good aatured ! Were you never so! Memory point to the days of your girlhood seldom the lines of anger disfigured your brow, then. And the man who won your love thought whnt a happy home she will make for me! How sweet it will be to sit down by her side ifter the cares of the day are over! How beautiful to read for her pleasure to be repaid ly smile snd kisses. And the home was renjy, and the bride established but she proved unworthy of the trust reposed in her. Instead of meet ing care with a hearty laugh, and a "get be hind me satan," you worried and fretted, and began to tell every little trouble to your husband. It was not womanly; it betrayed wenkness both of head and mind ! Imper ceptibly its influence crept into his spirit, chilling It with a worse chill than that of death, till it made a ahroud or iron for the disappointed heart, and the charm of love and family nnd home waa gone. " Wat once "how often these words drop from your lips. "I wna handsome once I was this, thnt nnd the other once" nnd why not now! Yon yourself have willed your own destiny you hnve chosen the scold's office; you munt receive the scold's deserts. A little philosophy, a few worda breathed to heaven for pntience, a new resolute hope for to morrow if to-day be stormy a self denial in telling petty crosses a great deal less selfishness s desire to make home sanc tuary for yourself snd little ones ns well a your husband and to dny you had been happier, handsomer snd more beloved. Fretting sister in light affliction, let us ask you a few plain questions. Doe spirit of fault finding lighten your enres! If your bread is burned to a tinder, doe It bringyou a good, light aweel loaf, to sit down snd wor ry about it! If the baby is cross, doe It sink him smile like n..Mtel t -shake him almost out of existence! If it rain on wash ing dny, will your ansthemas hurry out the sun until he stop right over your clothes line! But if your quick hands turn to the flour barrel to mould snother loaf if you soothe the weeping babe with the sweet word of a mother's pitying love, if you de vote your washing dny to snme appropriate work, how smoothly enre will iron down hi features, and become your humble slave in stead of the tyranical master he would be ! It is not too late yet. Surprise your hus band with a smilo it will be worth a dollar to see hia glance of astonishment; hold the salted water of Ihoughtfulness in your mouth, that you may say nothing unpleasant; and the angel thnt hns been lying prostrate in his heart with folded wings, will begin to flutter, nnd lift itself heavenward and look out of his eyes with the love of the olden time, and your home will yet be the paradise you once coveted. 5fJ"The St Louis Republican, in noticing the remedies prescribed for scirlet fever say: "We incline to the belief thnt the surest pro phylactic is in the watchful cure of a kind mother, and In proper safegunrd against undue exposure, and consequent cold, tore throat and fever. And if the feaver come, "throw physic to the dogs," and take to a rind of fut bacon and lubricato the little onea from head to foot. We hnve it from nn experienced old lady, that a "well greased child cever died of scarlet fever." Order. Nover leave things lying about shawl here, a pair of slippers there, a bon net somewhere else trusting to a servant to set things to rights. No matter how many servants you hnve, it is a miserable habit; and if its source is not in the Intellectual and moral charncter, it will Inevitably terminate there. If you have used the dipper, towel, tumbler, &c, put them back to their places( and you will know whore to find them again. Or if you set nn example of carelessness, do not blame your servants fur following it Children should be taught to put things back in their place as soon ns they nre old enough to use them; nnd if each member of the fam ily were to observe this simple rule, the house would never get much out of order, and large amount of vexation and useless lubor would be avoided. The Washington correspondent of the New York Times, of the 9th lost, ny: "Letter are In town to-day from Mr. Buch snsn, in which h ny thst if sny Individual hns been fixed upon in hi mind for a place in the Cabinet, neither he nor any living person know It; and that h will com here and take advice before attlng."

Pricocitt. One of the faulta of this faat age ia the great desire of parent to push their children forward into premature d velopment of faculties. W never see baby-children, and childish-adults, but ws re gret th unwise not to say cruel policy which urged them forwsrd into these unde veloped stages of existence. A bot-house plsnt may be very brilliant, but it is weakly and short-lived. So these stimulated men tal flowers may ahine very brightly while they are yet youflg, and expression of urpriae may be extorted from tho who witness the "intelligence above their years' msnitestea oy mem. cut wnen they are men and women they will have sdtnirer no longer. Theae over-atrained effort, which made them nearly men and women when children, now cause them to be nearly chil dren when grown to maturity. And this Is Isw of nature. Th organism of man can only endure ao much, can only become caps ble of a limited expansion; snd when the strength of the system Is used up, oc such draughts made upon it as to check it repro ductive powers, a condition of withering must follow. ' The fountain of life can only upply a given amount of water, and when that ia used the springs dry up. Hence, how common to see precocious children become very diminutive sdutts. Let parents take heed and be wise. How New York Bakers Make Bread. The Editor of the Journal of Commerce has been diving among the city bakers and cornea up with thia tale: "Our bakers are mostly under ground snd out ot sight, and few who eat their bread ev er witness the process of baking, and per haps it is well it is so. It hns been said that he who would relish his dinner, should keep clear of the kitchen. The rooms where the dough is mixed, are generally email and un der ground; the men Bleep, often, perhaps generally, in the same room a part of the night They otien smoke or chew tobacco or both, and we are credibly informed, that the feet instead of the hands are often em ployed in the piocesa of preparing the dough." And the New York Express follows with this strong corroboration: "There ia a bakery not two hundred feet from Nassau street, we may add, where thu laborera are daily seen coming into the street, with their nuked feet and legs all cov ered with dough, and the dough oozing be tween their ten pedal extremities! Ugh! Ughl" . An Affrertice Wanted. A Florida pa per give notice editorially that an appren tice I wanted in that office to learn the prin ting business, says very seriously, "one that can read and write would bs preferred." From what little knowledge we have of th profession, we should think such qualifica tion would b very likely to command a preference. Hocus Pocus. How to get a fine white house out of an empty whiskey barrel. Place the barrel in a secure place, near a spring of good water, on the road to the grog-shop. When you want a dram take tha price of it in your hand and start to the grog shop go aa far a the apring, drop the money through the bunghole, take good drink of water and return home. Repeat thia operation till the barrel ia full, knock out the head, and you have the price of a aplendid brick building. Fact. Wonder will Never Cease. It is now gravely proposed, no to deepen but to fill up the Hnrlem river, at New York, so as to extend the city when necessary, in thst di rection. Sixty years ago there was sixty feel depth of water on the present site of the Tombs, and it la not ao long aince Canal atreet and ita vicinity were a running stream. Harlem river, therefore, might be converted into building lots, and ita obliteration from th map would certainly render th neighbor hood more healthy. The Cosoressioral Investigating- Com mitter. Mr. Raymond, of the New York Times, appeared before this committee in Washington, on Wednesday. A dispatch to the Times snys: Mr. Raymond declined to state the nnme of the writer of the article in the Times of the 6th instant, but avowed his responsibi). ity for it He maintained the duty of the firess to act on moral convictior.a, nnd stated, n answer to questions, that he had received ample information to antisfy him that there was corrnptisn in Congress; that this wss necessarily second-hand evidence, and that he declined giving the names of his inform ants, aa he could not do so without a viola lion of confidence and besides it was un necessary.

Or perchanc th hard hand of poverty, or the cold hand of orphan age, are, moulding and training him for the patient effort, that aelf reliance and reaolute will, that fit him for great achievmenta. He must psss through the school that prepares him for his high career. In his youth many trials and wrong must break biin to the hsr- nesseflife. Iu hi manhood many hard ship must be endured, many obstacles over come, and rivala ontstripped In the rocs; the voice of envy and detraction despised; aad; hatred and malice defied. Through such a achool and training the Preaident of 1900 will doubtleaa come, and ia now coming. But from what condition In life, from what part of our land, no one can predict or know but Providence, who presides over the des tinies of all nations. taTThe Boston Post of the 13th inst., says: "It is reported that a company haa been organized with a capital stock of one millon of dollars, to manufacture Pentingill's tel egraph revolving pistol, a new invention. which claims to combine, in special degree, simplicity, strength, snd rapidity of execu tion. It is ssid to be an extraordinary wea pon, and deatined to supersede all revolving pistols, and that it will be adopted by the ar my and navy. It ia alleged that thia pistol ia self cocking an important improvement and thst it can be fired six times in a sec ond and a half of time.
