Republican Policy.
"Touch it otTcntlv," (aid Pat standing be
fore tbs montn or oannoa ana supposing it
was only' primed, "Touso it off gently, and I'll
catch the ball in this basket." It was touched
off as gently as possible, bnt Pat and the basket
were never seen again, iuusug many oi tne
Republican leaders of thai present day blunder
along as they approach the terrible crisis of our
country's destiny. Tbey seem to think tbattbey
can manage the' explosive forces of human
passion and civil war, and pocket a net profit
npon the whole 'operation. Notwithstanding
the repeated declarations of Congressmen from
Southern States, notwithstanding the emphatic
declarations of a dozen' Gubernatorial messa
ges and the solemn acts and resolutions of a
majority of Southern Legislatures, notwith
standing a thousand unmistakable indications
of deep, strong, and unchangeable feeling in
the Southern Slates, a portion of the leaders
of the Republican party have gone on steadily
Ignoring all these portentous signs of the times
in a policy which they mutt bAve known, if
they bad capacity to understand the plainest
indications, would imperil the Union. Tbey
cooly rejected all propotltiors to unite upon
any recognized conservative national candi
date, and, while the bonds Ibat hold our
Union together were snapping under the strain,
they labored with zeal and power worthy of a
better cause to break asunder all the remain
ing links of Union by instilling into their fol
lowers the bitterest prejudice and hatred
against the slavebolding States. That infa
mous and vindictive libel written by the rene
gade Helper was circulated by the hundred
thousand as a campaign document of the Re
publican party, endorsed by some of its leading
After all this after deriding and depreciating
the power, tho character, and the resources ol
the Southern States, we should not perhaps, be
surprised at the votes cast by their dupes, but
we nave a rich' to expect . lrom tne leaders ol
the party a higher order of intelligence, whlcb
should rise above the tricks and deceptions of an
electioneering campaign and realize tbe true
condition of the country, since even their fol
lowers by hundreds of thousands have manifest
ed tbelr eager desire for an amicable and pat
riotic settlement of our national contest. We
are sorry to say, that, if such Intelligence ex
ists, it is very slow in coming forth to meet tho
crisis, if we are to judge from loading Republi
can newspapers. The paltry humbugs of the
late campaign are still kept op, until we are led
to doubt whether tbe language oi muoh of the
Republican press does not arise from such a nar
rowness of mind and ignorance of the people
ot tbe United States a utterly disqualify the
writers for the responaibilitlea ol political jour
nalism. We are tempted to believe that not a
very large portion of the Republican journalists
have sufficient knowledge of human nature or ol
the resources' and character of the Southern
States to make their opinions worth anything in
the present crisis.
' Just before the Presidential election we were
gravely assured by Mr. Oreely of tbe Tribune,
that the election of Lincoln would have a won
derfully quieting effect updp the country ; that it
would be Hk cil poured Upon the waters, and
would promptly remove all sectional excite-
ment. Not believlngG.reelejaltogcthar a fool,
we were compelled to suppose that he had
reconciled bis conscience to tbe necessity of
winning an election by transparently false
pretences. If be would now claim credit for
sincerity In that prediction, be would prove a
degree of ignorance or imbecility which would
excuse bis present transcende&t follies. . The
Tribunewtbe Times, and other leading Republi
oan papers are gravely urging thecoerciouoi all
tne teceaea states Dy an emoargo or Diocuaae,
which, they maintain, would gently switch
them back Into tbe Union without involving
tbe calamities of war or ioBicting any injury
upon tbe North Nay, they are even caloa
ting that air the commerce .of tho country
would be driven to Northern ports; that South
ern cotton would be sent North by land, and
that tbe Northern cities would make a band-
some speculation by thus playing gracefully
and daintily at the great game of war. To
such stuff as this, we would reply emphatically
gentlemen, unless yon are resolutely bent on
realizing all the horrors of war, you need not
deceive your readers any longer by auoh delus
ive assurances. If you know no better your
selves, If you really believe 1. hat your nice and
oomfortable calculations will be verified, and,
that tbe Southern States will succomb like mis
chievous children to a little fiigellation, we are
amazed at yonr tolly and can scarcely conceive
bow men of respectable . Intelligence on other
subjects could be so utterly deluded in refer
ence to this great questien. ; .
Can you for a moment doubt that the block
ado of tbe Southern States would be resisted by
all tbelr warlike energies ( surely jour parti
san prejudices have not wrought such self-deception.
Can you anticipate any other conse
quence than tbe annihilation of all American
commerce Dy privateers, except so tar as it
may be protected by the presence of men-of-war
T .':.:"..;'...!
Dou yon not plainly see that Northern manu
facturers would lose not only for a time but
perhaps forever their Southern market that
emigration to the North would be arrested by
the want of employment and by burdensome
taxes, and that the calamities ot war would ba
terribly realized by every inhabitant of the
Northern HtatesT . , ;., ,
If the nollcv of a deluded party should drive
the South into consolidated Union in defence of
its demanded rights, do you suppose that eleven
millions of as warlike population as tbe world
contains, laminar witn the, nee or arms and
oocopjing a country full of Innumerable strong
holds lurnisneaoy mature, wouia snriuk from a
war of invasion however desolate? That such
a war must produce immense suffering and de
vastation on both sides la self-evident; but to
anticipate the conquest of such a people at tbe
men of tbe South or to suppose that their proud
bearing and lofty spirit, could be lowered by any
such attempt at military ooeroion is but the do
lusion of a fanatic or the dream of a comfortable
crlbler who speculates at ease in his arm chair,
bnt knows nothing of tbe sternretlities of war.
You count npon tne macs, population as an
element of daneer and weakness only, fori et-
tlng, that, as agricultural laborers, they count
as euicicntiy in war as u tuey were in tne neia.
Perhaps you count upon the horrid policy of in
surrection If this enters largely into your es
timates you tre incapablo or prontlug by tbe
lesson which you might havt learned from the
failure of John Brown. . , .. .. ' . , ,, t
Do not. we pray yon, trine any laneon an
armed rebellion, converted Into unconquerable
revolut.on, proves that yon were mistaken in
all vour calculations auring tne late campaign

eanUal out of our country's misfortunes, ; We

elans, but io tbe name of humanity, in the
name of patriotism, when we ask you to forget,
as others havs done, the paltry Interests Of par
ty and give our country once more peace and
mosneritv. We need not repeat for the thous
andth time our expression of the conviction,
that the Southern Secessionists have aoted un
advisedly, rashly, flagrantly, acted in strange
and manifest disregard of the great interests
of tbelr own section and in violation of all loy
alty to the Constitution and the laws, but a
little calm and dispassionate reflection would
convince you that the sectional and aggressive
language and deeds of yourselves and your de
luded followers, continued and aireravattd
through a long series of years, conld in tbe na
ture ol tnings, have no other tendency than to
inflame and provoke the fiery spirits of the
South to such a course as tbey have taken.

Description of Niagara Falls Seventy Years Ago.
The following letter is taken' from the Co
lumbian Magazine for June, 1790, and is writ
ttn by Andrew Elliott, Esq., to Dr. Rush. ',
Dean Sir: Amornr the manv natural curios
ities which this country affords, the Cataract of
Niagara is incennlteiy tbe greatest. In order
to have a tolerable idea of this stunendous fall
of water, it will be necessary to conceive that
part of the country in which Lake Erie is situ
ated, to be elevated above Ibat wblch contains
Lako Ontario, about three hundred feet. Tbe
slope which separates tbe upper and lower coun
try is generally very sleep, and in many cases
almost perpendicular. It is formed by horizon
tal strata, of stone.a great part of which is what
we commonly call limeetone. Tho slope may
be traced from the north side of Lake Ontario,
near tbe bay of Toronto, (lie) round tbe west
end of tbe lake; thence its direction is general
ly east, between Lake Ontario and Lake Erie
it croesrs the strait of Niagara, and the Cue
neseco River, after which it becomes lost In
the conntry towards the Scncci Lako. It is to
thlsslopo that our ciuntry is indebted, both for
tbe Cataract of Niagara, and tbe Falls of tbe
The Cnraract of Niaeara was formerly down
at the northern side of the slope, near to that
place which Is now known by the name of tbe
landing: but from the creat leurth 'of tima ad
ded to the great quantity of water, and distance
wmcu it tans, tne solid stone is worn away, lor
about seven miles, un towards Lake Erie, and a
chasm is formed which no person can approach
wuDoui nnrror. uown this chasm the water
rushes with most astonishing velocity, after it
makes tbe great pitch. Ia going up the road
near the cbasm, the fancy is constantly engaged
in the contemplation of the most romantlo and
awful prospects Imaginable till at length tbe
ejo catches the Fulle ihe Imagination is In
stantly aroused, and jou admire in silenca! The
river Is about one hundred and thirty-five poles
wide, at the Falls, and the perpendicular pitch
one hundred and fifty feet. The fall of this

The difficulty which would attend leveling the
rapids in the chasm, prevented my attempting
it; but I conjecture the water must descend at
least C5 lot tbe perpendicular pitch at the
cataract is 120 feet, to these add S3 feet, which
the water falls in the last half mile, Immediate
ly above the falls, ni we have 273 feet which
the water falls,- in a distance of about seven
miles and a half. - If either ducks or geese in
advertently allcht in the rapids above the great
cataract, they are incapable ot getting on the

i There is one appearance at this cataract,
worthy of some attention, and which I do not
remember to have seen noted by any writer.
just Deiow tne great pitch, the water and roam
may be seen puffed up in spherical figures,
nearly as large as common cocks of bay, tbey
burst at the top, and project column of spray
to a prodigioos height, tbey then subside, and
are succeeded by others, whioh burst in like

about half way between tbe island that divides

Christmas in Norway.
The followinc account of the Celebration of
Christmas In Norway occurs in a letter recent
ly received from an American lady now visit
ing that country. An extract from one of her
previous letters appeared in our columus some
weeks ago, and was widely copied: - .
"As lu moat or the mountain regions, old
customs and traditions have taken deeper root
nere ana require a longer .time to die out than
in any other countries; and In tbe interior of
Norway many distinct traces of Paganism and
ancient Catholicism are still to be found, es
pecially in the celebration ot Christmas, which
maybe said to. continue from Christmas eve
till two or threo days after New Year's,
though service is held in the churches on three
dajs only. Tbe dajs of the 'year consecrated
by the ancient Scandinavians to the cele
bratlon of their great Julo feast correspond ex
actly with our Christmas, whioh is sull called
by ns "Juul." A peculiar feature of their
celebration was the drinking of strong beer,
and when ineptrated to a suQioient de
gree, they fought as long as tbey wore able
to carry their sword and lance. The Juleol
(Christmas beer) and Juleksge (Christmas
cake) are still prepared, and in some plaoo
several superstitious signs and ceremonies are
observed to keep evil spirits away from the
homes. On the afternoon preceding Christmas
eve, when the church bells begin to "ring in tbe
feast" as we say all lay aside their work,
which Is not again resumed for several days.
Golden sheaves of corn are placed on the tops
of the bouses, or on long poles, that the birds
of heaven may share with ns in the abundance
of God's blessings. At dusk, children robed in
white, carrying illuminated stars of paper,' go
round from bouse to house, proclaiming the ad
vent of our Saviour. l' In the evening comes tbe
fuhristmas tree, loaded with presents for tbs dif
ferent members of the family, who gather round
the supper table to partake or the Kisengrvns-
grod, (boiled rice and milk) which Is as certain
to be found there as tbe turkey and plum pud
ding on your Thanksgiving Day dinner table.
Purine the days between Christmas and New
Year's, balls and other k!nds;of amusements ate
frequent.' ' ' 1 ' ' 1

A compound remedy, designed to bo the n ot

a concentrated extract of Para SarTOpntillii,
so combined with other substnnees .of Mill
greater alterative power as to afford an effec
tive antidote for tlio disease barsnparilla ii
reputed to cure. It w belittved that such a
remedy is wanted by thorn who suffer t orn
Strumous complaints, and tlint one which will
accomplish their cure roust prov? sf immense
service to this large class of our afflicted fellow-;
citizens. ' How completely this compound will"

of the worst cases to bo found of the following
complaints: . -i . i.

This compound will bo found a grenfpro
motor of health, when tuken in the spring, to
expel the foul humors which fester in the
blood nt that mwil of the year, I5y tlio time
ly expulsion of them many rankling disorders
aro nlnped in the bud. Multitudes can, by
tho aid, of this remedy, spnre themselves fi-pm
the endurance of foul eruptions and ulcerous
tores, through which the system will utrivs to
rid itself of corruptions, if not assisted to do
this through the natural channels of die hotly
by an alterative medicine. CIciuto out ftia
vitiated blood whenever you iititl itshtipi.;itie
bursting through the skin in pimples, eruptions,
or sores; cleanse it when yo't lind it'w ob
structed and sluggish in the veins ; ck'im3 it
whenever it is foul, nud your feelings will tell
you when. Even where no particular disorder
is felt, people enjoy better health, and live
longer, for cleansing tho blood. Keep the
blood hcnlthy, and all ia well ; but with this
pabulum of life disordered, there can bo no
lasting health. Sooner or later something
must go wrong, and tho great machinery of
life is disordered or overthrown. , . '
Sarsnpaiilln ha3, nnd deserves much, the
reputation of accomplishing these ends, lint
tho world has been ogregiously deceived by
preparations of it, partly because the dru '
alono has not all tho virtue thut is claimed
for it, but moro because many preparation's
pretending to bs concentrated extracts of it,
contain but little of the virtue of Sarsaparillu,
or any thing else.
During Into years tlio public have been mil
led by large bottles, pretending to give a quart
of Extract of iSarsaparilla for one dollar, 2iot
of theso have been frauds upon the sick, for
they not only contain little, if nny, Sarsnpa
rilla, but often no curntive properties whatev
er. Hcucc, bitter and painful disappointment
has followed tlio use of the various extracts of
Sursiipuiilla which flood the market, until tho
name itself is justly despised, mid has become
synonymous with imposition and client. Still
we call this compound Sarsaparillu, end intend
. to supply such a remedy as d'.ibU rescue :hu
urae from the load of obloquy which rerts
upon it. And wo think wc have ground far
believing it has virtues which nro irresistible
