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
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
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
“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

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,
“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
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
“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.

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
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

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

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

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
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.
