WALL A BROTHER, Broad Street. September 16, 1866—tf. POLITICAL 81UN8, PENNSYLVANIA AND THC N0TRHWK8T The Pennsylvania and north western papers come to us laden with the most cheering accounts for the democratic cause. The people of the States northwest of the Ohio, formed out of the generous bequest of Virginia, with generous hearts seem determined to remember the noble conduct of‘Old Dominion,’ and to stand by her in the struggle for equal rights. For that is now the true issue, the equal l ights of the States of the Union. They know uo contest between the North and the South, but standing close by the constitution, the Union, aud that great first principle which lies at the foundation of both, State equality, they are resolved to rebuke the spirit of fanaticism which wyuld outrage them all. WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA. A great democratic gathering was held at Pittsburg on the 10th of last month. The Pitts burg Union, of the 11th, says: “Our great mass convention in this city came oft' yesterday, and we cannot attempt to describe amid the din, dust, and confusion still around us, the numbers and enthusiastic feelings of the thousands that were in attendance. At a very moderate estimate, we set it down that there were not less than twenty thousand people on the convention ground. The heat of the day and the clouds of dust flying having rendered it uncomfortable to march in procession, the great proportion of the people proceeded to the grounds by the cars, carriages, omnibuses, and private conveyances, but, notwithstanding all this, the procession was grand and imposing. PENNSYLVANIA WII-L DO IlEli DL'TY. Before the election in Maine was held, an in telligent citizen of Philadelphia wrote as follows to the editor of the Portland Argus : “We expect to lose Maine. 1 doubt if you appreciate suflieieutly there tin one terrible truth that the election of Fremont is, per se, the dis solution of the Union. It would not merely en danger the Union and leave it doubtful, but this question is now as distinctly before the people as if union or disunion was upon their ballots. In order to elect Fremont, lie must receive 149 northern electoral votes. In that event the out lawry of the southern States proclaimed by the sectional convention at Philadelphia will have been confirmed by the northern people, aud a political geographical division will have been accomplished. The rest would speedily follow. But, thanks to the steady character of the peo ple of this good old State, they are destined, as 1 firmly believe, to ward oft' the danger. Fre mont is comparatively so weak that no attempt lias yet been mode to form a Wad repulican electoral ticket here. The Americans have formed a Fillmore ticket, and the black repub licans are endeavoring to make an arrangement with them; but the attempt, 1 venture to say, will prove vain. But whether they unite or whether they divide, the result will be the same. Along the frontier counties of the State, border ing on Maryland and Virginia, which would probably be the border counties in case of dis union, very great changes have taken place in our favor.” omo in a ni.AZE!—twenty-five thousand demo crats IN COUNCIL. The following telegraphic despatch, (says the Ohio Statesman of the 10th.) received last even ing from Seneca county, is another evidence of the monster democratic meetings that are tak ing place all over Ohio, and so cheering to the hearts of the friends of our grent aud noble Union. “Let no one hereafter doubt the patriotic de votion of the people of Ohio to the Union of these States. Such a universal outpouring of the democracy as is witnessed day after day in Ohio has had no paruicl in the history of our politics. We have seen good, great, and enthu siastic meetings, but nothing equal to what is now witnessed in every part of the State: Tiffin, Ohio, Sept. 10, 1856. “S. Medary: Immense democratic assemblage here, estimated fully twenty-five thousand pres ent. 1‘ugli, Vullandigham, and Gaston all speaking; five stands. First procession one hour and three-quarters passing the Shawau house; af terwards a procession of two miles in length on road from Sandusky and the north. The city is literally overflowing with people. Great en thusiasm. “I)em. Central Committee.” THE CANVASS IN MICHIGAN —THE STATE SAFE FOR BUCK AND BKECK. The great democratic mass meetings recently held at Kalamazoo and Pontiac—in point of numbers and enthusiasm without a parallel in the history of the State—must satisfy every candid mind as to the real state of public feel ing in Michigan. We are indebted to a corres pondent of the New York Day Book for the subjoined interesting account of these remarka ble popular demonstrations: “The great democratic meeting at Kalamazoo and Pontiac, last Friday and Saturday, far ex ceeded in number the anticipation of the most sanguine. The Kalamazoo meeting numbered not less than 30,000 people, brought together from the western counties of the State.— Speeches were made by Messrs. Breckinridge and Preston from Kentucky, Daniel S. Dickin son from New York, Bright from Indiana, Cass, McClelland (Secretary of Interior,) Felch, La throp, Stewart, and others of our own State.— At Pontiac, Messrs. Breckinridge, Preston, Dickinson, Cass, aud Felch, spoke to ail im mense multitude, numbering not less than 25,- 000. Both meetings were characterized through out with the greutest enthusiasm. At Pontiac our friends had prepared an old fashioned bar becue, which is a new feature in meetings in this section. At both places Mr. Breckinridge was received with most tremendous cheers from more than 20,000 stout democratic lungs, which were echoed, and will be re-echoed, over the prairies of Michigan till the 4th of November shall send back the glad sounds that Kentucky’s gallaut son fills the second place in the gift of the American people, while ‘Old Buck’ stands at the helm of the good old ship, Constitution. “I must notice one incident of the Pontiac meeting. The States were represented by young ladies dressed in white, eacli 'rearing a banner with the name of a particular State upon it. In this groupe Kansas was not forgotten, but she also had her representative in the person of a beautiful young girl, not rolled in black, as the black republicans would have done, but in gar ments of spotless white, and a garland of flow ers upon her head. It is needless to say that the young Kansas was greeted with loud and continued shouts, while the roar of camion wel comed her to the confederacy of States untram meled by the provisos of sectional fanatics. THE CANVASS IN ILLINOIS. —COLONEL RICHARDSON IN THE FIELD. At the grand democratic mass meeting at Rock Island' on the 0th, there were upwards of seven thousand democrats present, notwithstanding a severe rain storm prevailed at the time, Both Judge Douglas and Col. Richardson addresed the meeting with great power and effect. The editor of the Chicago Timet, who was present, says: “We do not believe that any body of men ever displayed more devotion to political truth than the gallant democracy of Kock Island city and couuty in standing six hours unprotected* in a rain, to hear the principles of their party ex pounded.” A correspondent of the Chicago Timer, thus notices a large and enthusiastic democratic rally in Bureau county: “Without any previous effort, without having ! imitated the example of the Lovejoyites, and scoured the country to drum up the people without having given the matter extensive pub licity, and without making any attempt to draw the people from the neighboring counties, but by simply stating that “Old Dick” aud other speakers were to be here, W’e had the largest meeting of Bureau county ever before assembled. It is estimated that about five thousand people were present. The procession was a mile and a half long, notwithstanding a very large propor tion of the people, who arrived in town before it was formed, hud unhitched their teams, aud did not join in the procession. “The number present would have been much greater, and the procession would have been much longer, had not the meeting at Morris been held on the same day. Many democrats from the eastern portion of the county went to the Morris meeting to hear Douglas and Van Buren. 1 am informed that teventeen wagon-load « went from one towuship alone!” At the great demonstration at Freeport up wards of ten thousand persons were present After noticing at length this glorious rally of the democracy, a correspondent of the Times says: “Col. Richardson, the gallant, glorious “Old Dick,’ the'next governor of Illinois, took the stand, and in his own eloquent, plain, and straightforward manner showed clearly the dis union and destructive tendencies of hypocritical black-republicanism on the one hand, and on the other that the principles of the democracy of to-day were the principles of a Jefferson, a Washington, a Madison, a Monroe, and a Jack son, and identically those the observance of which has made our country what it is.” “Old Dick' has a way of proving his positions by the record. If ever a noble hearted patriot of clear head and true courage lived, Col. Rich ardson is one. He was followed in an eloquent manner in the German language, by Mr. Louis Schade, of Washington, D. C. Dr. Leib, next occupied the stand. Then followed Hon. R. S. Moloney, the candidate of the democracy of the 1st district of Illinois for Congress. “Dr. Moloney is a very able and excellent public speaker, and on this occasion he made one of the best and strongest political speeches to which we ever listened. “So closed a day long to be remembered iu Old Stephenson.” All'll I rn nt Pniinmn. An election was recently hekf in Panama for Governor, which resulted in the election of Sr. Bartolome Calvo, by a majority of seven thous and votes over Sr. Diaz. The election was at tended with great excitement. The partizans of the Diaz faction, were ex citing the negroes to rebellion; and, but for the presence of U. S. vessels of war at Panama, there is little doubt but they would have suc ceeded in reducing the city to ashes, and mur dering all the inhabitants ere this. Business had been at a perfect stand-still for the past week, stores were closed, peaceable men are obliged to go armed, and no man’s life was safe. The government lias been threatened by an armed mob of organized negroes, who boast that they will sack the city and murder the white population. The Star and Herald of October 1st, says ; “We hoped that the legal election of Sr. Bar tolome Calvo, would have ended the state of suspense in which the city has been kept. In this w’e have been disappointed. When the hour of meeting of the Legislature arrived yes terday, (ID,) the members who had absconded from the House for four days, and whose places had been refilled after so much delay, present ed themselves and took possession of their seats and among them was the Vice President, Ur rutia Aniuo, who had the hardihood to seat him self in the presidential chair. This step led to a violent discussion in the House, which resulted in the drawing of weap ons and the wounding of one of the members. The Assembly was broken up, open violence was threatened by the Diaz faction, the police, national guard and a large body of volunteers were called out, and the negroes were dispers ed. The boats from the Independence and St. Marys were prepared, and lay off the town all the afternoon in expectation of an attack upon their countrymen, and the greatest excitement prevailed throughout the city. Up to the hour of going to press however, no encounter took place, although one is momenta rily expected. Commodore Mervine has, with the consent of the Governor, placed a guard of Marines on shore to protect American interests, and will be ■ compelled to keep them here until these troub los are settled. The populace outside the walls are no more j subdued now than they were before the arrest of their political leaders —they still have their j arms—they still have those men amonst them who, when the opportunity serves, will rouse | their courage, and still worse, those fiend ish and brutal passions which always have char- \ acterised a rising of the negro race, To add to the uneasiness of the Americans at Panama, it is rumored that the United States vessels will soon be called away, to attend to affairs on the Mexican coast. A Hivr to Church Sleepers. —At the ortho dox church in Westminster, Mass., on a recent Sunday, the clergyman, an aged minister, was preaching from the text —“I speak as unto wise men; understand ye what I say.” He advanced as far as “thirdly,” when he observed that many of his hearers, overcome by the heat of the day, had fallen asleep. Stopping his discourse, and wiping the perspiration from his furrowed brow, he exclaimed, “My friends, as the day is sultry and oppressive, I will stop awhile, and re quest the choir in the meantime to sing the tune ‘Coronation,’ commencing. ‘My drowsy powers why sleep ye m>V ” The effect of this innova tion, as may lie supposed, was to completely destroy any disposition to sleep which might have prevailed among the congregation. The hymn concluded, the minister resumed his dis course. Jews in the Austrian Army. —According to the Altgemeine Zeitung, there are 12,000 Jews in the Austrian army, of whom more than 600 are officers, surgeons with the rank of officers, aud members of the auditing department. A great portion of the remainder are subalterns, many of them owing their positions mainly to the fact that they can read and write German, an ac complishment not very common in the Austrian army, which is necessarily composed of various nationalities. WHOLE NO. 159. One tvho died without Living. M. Faul Legrand died at Dijou, in Burgundy, at the age of seventy-one, leaving the follow ing memoir, whereby he proves that he has not lived: All that is suffering, sorrow, ennui, despair, desire, regret, should be deducted from life, be cause we should ourselves have deducted it had heaven permitted. When three years old 1 was weaned; at six l could speak but badly; at seven I split my skull; at nine I> was cured. I must therefore extract nine years from my existence; for surely to drink a nurse’s sour milk, not to speak, or badly, to split one’s skull, is not liv ing. At the age of nine I began my studies.— Owing to my cracked skull, my bead was a hard one, and 1 proved stubborn to tuition. I re quired two years’ labor to spell the alphabet. 1 was indebted to letter Z alone four score hun dred lashes; the other twenty-three letters made a complete martyr of me. At the age of twelve I could read, but my body was mangled with the alphabet sears. An attempt was made to teach me Latin, and I lost my French in the experi ment. At fifteen I knew nothing at all, and a forced diet of bread and water had reduced me to the condition of a skeleton. Six years more had therefore to be deducted. At sixteen my father made me a notary’s clerk. There com menced a new species of martyrdom. I got up at six, swept the office, lighted the stove, was drubbed by the taller clerks, uud my father overwhelmed with complaints against me, de prived me of iny dinner. This sort of life I led for five years, and from life I will positively de duct them. At twenty iny father, quite disgust ed with his son, put me on board a ship at Cher bourg. I washed the deck, dfupt up the top mast, mended the sails, and received thirty lushes a day on my back. This was endured for four years. At twenty-four my father made me a haljerdasher. I married Mademoiselle Ursulc Desvousins, a turner’s daughter. Her portion consisted of thirty thousand livres, mortgaged upon a sugar estate in St. Domingo. The day after the wedding I found out that my wife had a wooden leg, made by father-in-law, the turn er. The poor woman made a thousand apolo gies for her infirmity, and I pardoned her out of regard to her marriage portion. The St. Do mingo blacks rose against the whites, and burnt the marriage portion, and the wooden leg was left to me. At thirty I lost my wife in conse quence of a scrofulous disease in her real leg. I spent six years of marriage repenting every minute. What folly 1 committed in taking that leg! 1 therefore deduct these six years from my life. Having, as everybody else, slept a third part of my life, I deduct 24 years, of sleep, and I am now below the right reckoning, for I was a great sleeper. A year lost, adding min ute to minute, in searching for the keys of my desk, which I was continually mislaying. Does one live when he looks for a key ? Three years lost in having myself shaved and powdered, Ac. Five years lost in suffering toothache, two infla inations of the chest, with relapses and conva lescence. Three years lost in saying, -“What's o’clock?’’ “we have bad weather to-day;” “‘how do you do ? “how is your lady?” “‘I have a bad cold,” "Marlborough s’en va-t-en guerre— what mud in the street—what a winter this year!” Six months lost in having the mud brushed off one, and six in brushing one’s hat. One year of endurance of the entire acts of the theater. One year lost in listening to tbo mod ern dramas, the cJitfd' oeuvre of genius not under stood. One year lost in complaining of salt and tasteless soups, of cutlets too much or too undone of indi . sfom or hard eggs. Total 71 years, I beg leave to declare that in giving up the ghost 1 do not give up anything worth keeping. Cultivation ok Cotton in Algeria —The growth of cotton in Algeria forms the subject of a rather interesting report from Marshal Vaillunt to the Emperor, which was published in the Moniteur. In this document the Minister of War recognizes the good effect of the decrees of the 16th of October, by which an annual prize of $20,000 was allotted, for live years, to the liest cotton-grower in the Franeo-Afriean colo ny; and for three years, commencing with 1854, the whole cotton produce of Algeria was order ed to be purchased by the State, at a fixed price beforehand, and advantageous to the producer. In consequence of this encouragement, the growth of cotton has increased, and it has been proved not only that tbe plant flourishes in many districts of tin; colony, but tlmt its quality is comparable to that of the finest produce of the United States. A prolongation of the ad vantages assured to the producer is suggested, and it has accordingly been decreed that the Government w ill continue to purchase the whole of the Algerine cotton until the crop of 1858 inclusively. It may not be uninteresting to our manufacturers to watch the progress of this fresh field, which, judiciously nurtured by the French Government, may, perhaps, ere many years have passed, compete for their custom with the vast cotton grounds of the States. It is yet too soon to risk a prediction as to what Algeria may do in this way; but present ap pearances are favorable, and doubtless France will neglect no means of converting iuto a pro fitable colony a territory which has hitherto served but as an expensive training ground for her soldiers.— London Tim?*. Cholorokoh'i in Poisoning.— The Rochester Democrat, of Sept. 15th, records a case of acci dental poisoning from strychnine in which cholo roform was successfully applied to relieve the terrible spasms of the patient. The person took four grains of strychnine in mistake for another powder. As soon as the mistake was discover ed, an emetic was given. Two large emetics taken in quick succession, failed to produce vomiting. The patient was convulsed with the severest forms of tetanic spasms. His jaws were firmly locked, and it wus impossible to open his mouth to administer remedies. The approach towards his mouth caused a recurrence of the spasms. Choloroform was applied, which reliev ed the spasms in about three minutes, and stop ped them completely in ten minutes, when a third powerful emetic was given. If the cholo roform application was remitted, the spasms in stantly returned in full force, so that it was found necessary to keep the patient constantly under the influence of the Kinesthetic. In about ten minutes after the third emetic was taken, vomiting was produced. The patient was kept under the influence of cholo Morin till the next morning. During tbe time .hat the spasmodic action was controlled by the choloroform, the system had opportunity to throw off the poison that had been taken up by tbe absorbents, and when that was effected, tin* patient was out of danger. He hail retained his conseiousnes dur ing the whole of the period that he suffered from the effects of the poison. Arrest ok Two Robbers. —The Mariposa Ga zette says : “Last Sunday’s stage brought Mr. A. F. Noles, Constable from Sonora, having in his charge John Riley, alia* Jaek Cowan, alias Tex as Jack, alias Jack Price and Robert Poor.— They were arrested in Sonora, on a charge of assault with deadly weapons.
