Should we Fear the Pope.
Under the above caption tho June
unib:r of Tutnam's Magazine, contains
an article, written, we suppose by the po
litical Editor, Park Goodwin. After ci
ting several events in history, in which it.
appears that the Pope has' on evory possi
ble opportunity extended Iiis temporal pnw
r, ig well the influcnee i t he Rwnith
Church, it is claimed that the position and
state of advancement in this nineteenth
er ntury, and particularly in these United
States, vitiates that power and secures us
against its influence, and thus would wc
bo lulled into indifference and want of
Now granting Mr. Goodwin's conolu
liens, that a state of circumstances exist
in this country which may forever prevent
the ascendency and triumph of Iho Pope
over us, yet, herein we differ. The very
bar to the Pope's power over us, is that
discreet fear which has always perva
ded our people; Remembering that eter
nal vigilance is the price of Liberty, our
jeople are now awake, and watch with a
jealous eye, every advance of Romish pow-
r ind influc nee among ns. We would cher
ish this fear in tho breast of every Amcri
ean. We want no such priestly power in
this free confederacy, as dominates over our
republics in the South, and throughout
South America. We want no amassing
of vast estates, and closing of tho Rible a"
exists iu Romish Europe. An np-m bible,
an untcrnmclled conscience, and free schools
is our motto.
But in all this we meditato no coercion
jiiinrt ottr Tcykh friends. If they pre-
:u:r r
church service, they lavo n perfect right
so to worship. .We. have no right or dis
position to rntcrfero.ia such matters. 'In
this frca couu try vre claim the right of ct
Vjf roo- to worship tfi.l according to tho
.dictates of lift owu conscience. 15 .it when
we coin'p to legislate upon the rights arid
tenure of property, then we have a right
to snj n right too whioh should beoxorci-pod,-
that vast estates fur church or other
professed charitable objects, shall .'- be
held, controlled or pwpetunfod by no man.
Tho. rights in property beiug wholly con
ventional in a free country, wo lnve tbo
right to guard' our liberties against tho in
fluence of consolidated wvalt'a. This right
we would exercise against nil churches, bo
thay .Romish or Pro'osfant. And this is
the'exfent to which we can or would legal
ly interfere!.

right of freemen to voto for whom.' they

to vote for men who will represent, our pe
culiar notions. This right should be exer
cised without abridgemt"! l. If majority
of the people, or m-tJ & .rjccfab!o tiiluc

friends have no more just right to complain,
then have our fellow citizens in the south
ern states to say wo shall not talk about
their vile system of slavery, or elect men
to office, who will oppose its extersion; and
yet, what northern man would allow a slave
holder to forbid his talking about and vo
ting against s.lavi ry 1
Whiio we then, are opposed to Popi.-h
Romanism, and will exoteise our rights to
prevent i's extci)eion iu tlii? free cunt it,
because we f 'ar its alterior designs, we di1
ny any spirit of intolerance or persecution
on cur part. Ou the contrary, we claim
the utmost liberty in the worship of God,
not. only for curclve, but for eve ry man.
For this very reason, when wo see what
the Pope ha? done, do we f ar the exten
sion of his power, and would therefore be
vigilant, knowing that therein is saf.-ty.
Oi'R neighbor of the lierall in a late
issue, in discoursing on tho Cleveland con
vention and its proceedings, holds tho fol
lowing language:
"The convention resolved not to nomi
nate a separate ticket, which we think ad
visable. Rut the best feature and the
most sensible n Ive, if true, is, the abo
liilon of ilie. otth a ''rii'cy. I'rop this,
and that of proscribing citizens on account
of their religious convictions, mid those
who belong to tho Atuerican party will
liHve no cause to wound their consciences
dny by day, in denying their principles,
and the political god they worship. We
feci encouraged that there may some
good come out of NrKreth jet. We
await further developeuunts. The times
are evidently auspicious of returning rea
son." It has been so often charged upon the
American party, by Know Nothings upon
(hit subject, that, they were hound by their
oath to deny their principles and their
connection with the order, that there Rre
some well meaning persons who really
, ,i i . i . . i i ,
seem to ttiinu mat tno emerge teas some
foundation in truth. We prof -s to he
long to the American party, and to have
been in that organization before there was
a society of Know Nothings in this city
if indeed there has boon one since; and we
take tho liberty to say that we know of
no oath binding obligation which requires
any member to deny his principles or io
any respect to falsify the truth. The
charge is therefore perfectly gratuitous.
The whiss have been styled federalists.
and tho Democrats, Locfocos, and now the
American party sometimes take the liberty
to give them all iu a mu"s the endearing
appelation of Fo-.reys.but who brother Al
lison would have the audacity to charge
you with falsehood, if you should see. pro
per to deny being a hunker, a federalist or
a fogy? , Will you not then allow others
the same privilege which you claim for
yourself without charging them with lying
and perjury. Please think of this when
you write again. Now, bro. Allison the
idea of the revival of old, defunct, silver
grey whiggery with a mammoth United
States Rank, and a high protective tariff
would perhaps effect my nervous system
as seriously as would the idea of 21 years
probation for foreigners, your delicate
nerves. Thus it is tho same subject strikes
different minds in different ways. Wo
go fcr a revenue Tariff equal to tho sup
port of our General Government adminisJ
tercd with strict economy, and which will
operate as an incidental protection to all
classes of community.- This we hold to
bo the doctrine of tho American platform
of Ohio in this branch of national policy
and with this understanding of its mean
ing it is by us most fully and freely en
dorsed. We are inclined to tho opinion,
bro, Allison, that your acquiescence in the
main features of the platform is the result
of now light which has been reflected
into your understanding in this age of pro
gress and reform and not thopioof of a ny
raucal detect in the instrument itself.

our ub.-.cnee, we have been unable to, pay

some remarks of ours, pouching the suit,

No man of lks.i perception than the
ex-congressman, could have found any
thing, misstated iu our account of that af-l
fair. -We did not state as his article implies,-
that he told us at tho time when he
eummrnrrti sending us bis paper, that be
did not intend to charge us for it, nor cn

dy (states, that his reason f or sending ns the
paper, free, was, because; he be lie ved us to
bo a "gcud man." Do you scud your pa

suppose tbat wbeuover you present your
bill to a subscriber, ho may consider him
self, on your black list. The allusion of
the i"Nt mH to our having taken an in
ventory of his private affairs, is purely a
fancy of his diseased brain. .
As to our alternately "approving snd

Proceedings of the Central Committee.
Jn pursuance of previous notice, the un
dersigned members of the Jefferson Coun
ty Democratic Central Committee met at
Stanton cfe .McCyok's Law oilii-e; in Steu
Leiiviiie, on Saturd-iy, June 'Jth, l85o.
Whereupon the foliowiug call was agreed
upon :
FERSON. Who are opposed to all secret, cath
bound political societies; who are in favor
in time to come as in times past, of entrus
ting thcstatidrtrd of the party to the intel
ligence and patriotism of American citi
zens without distinction of birth, place or
religion; Democrats who are old cuough
to remember the alien and sedition laws
and the Harifoid Convention; and the
younger men who have learned from the
teachings of Je.fl'eusn and Jackson, to
cherish tho great principles of the Dem
craey, "Freedom of speech and of the
press," "Free toleration of all religions,"
"Equal and exact justice to all men, and
favors to none."
Will meet in their respective townships
and election districts, at 'the usual places
of h dding primary meetiugs, on Saturday
the 11th day of August 155, and select
three delegates to meet in County Conven
tion, and one delegate to the Judicial Con
vention, to be held at some timo not yet
agreed upon.
For respect to our personal friends,
who, as "Central Committee'' have issued
mi addm-s "to the Democrats of old Jeffer
son" and for the additional and official
evidence of the. conservatism of the admin
istrative democratic party, which is there
given us, weputillsh to-ijsiy the e ll for n
"county convention to beheld on Monday
the ISth of August.
Every render of that nddrcFS will not
fail to notice the boldness with which the
great questions of the day aro entirely ne
glected. We say "loUlntss" because at
this day when the vital questions of liber
ty ami the perpetuity of our free institu
tions, and tho consequent welfare of our
country is at sfyko, and men's minds r.re
aroused to the importance of" these things,
it requires a full measure of moral bold
ness, for politicians, in addressing the peo
ple to limit themselves to tho effete up
peais oi ueniagoguei.-m. feureiy, our
friends who L-sue that address have faile
to read the signs of tho times, not to know-
that mere windy prating has ceased to
have its effect.
Rut, tliif address is additional evidence
of the conservatism of tho administration
party. Wc search it in vain for any do
nunciatiou of the violation' of human
rights in the first 'measures of tho 'admin
istration; viz: tho Fugitive slave law, mv.
tho throwing open of Kansas and Nebras
ka to slave power. ' Wc search it in vain
for any appeal "to tho democrats of b!
JelTar.son," to come to the rescue, and stay
the foul strides of slavery.' No, ho. The
administration pnriy h not the 'party of
progress. ? The demoeratio principle so no

'The Shne and Glory of th
Medical, profession.
Na 1.
Mr. EdiTciR : am aware that to some
this title may seem of a glaring and yu
pori-ect character, but to one who loves the
science and art to ieh Lis life is devoted,
it will, I trust, prove a subject full of
meaning.' Reputation is the shadow of
action, and the glory and shame of nations,
of professions, or of individuals, spring
from inherent virtues and vices, and can
not obtain ascendency except as the se vir
tues and vices predominate. . To root out
ituperiections and train all honorable cjiial
!tiJ ikl their iul'tst capacity of attain
ments i toe art of" tVry lover of his
fession or his race. Rut to heal, we
must first und- rstaod the disease, and then
experience or reason can exhibit a remo
dy. The medical profession is the oldest
one extant, having had its birth ill those
earlier ages when imagination reaches
back vaguely and tradition takes the place
of reliable history. It is perhaps true that
in his primitive eondition, ushered into
being by the very band of an all-wise and
I benevolent Creator, man stood forth with
out sp"t or blemish, a creature of clear
understanding, holy heart, sound and
healthy physical organization. Then
thought was that spontaneous inspiration
by which the knowledge of higher intelli
gences descended unto men. Religion
was the mingling of the soul with the di
vine law which it instinctively recognised
and adored, and every nerve of animal ex
istence vibrated in delicious harmony with
a world whose flowers had known no
Hight, whese fruitngc was uncankered;
whose skies no clouds had ever overcast,
whose breezes had never roused to fury,
and whose streams were clear as the crys
td lymph that flows fast by the city of
God, Rut this charming scene was not
destined to be eternal. The thirst for un
lawful knowledge, the desire for that for
bidden tree whose mortal taste brought
death into the world, and all our woe seiz
ed upon man, and thus entailed its curse.
The divine world into whic h man was first
placed was a world of order, when every
impression was like a note struck from a
delicate lyre, full of melody snd beauty.
Rut s'.n was the destruction of that hap
py state, and the jarred cords gave thence
forth no perfect harmony. The mind
could no longer name intuitively the vast
varieties of creation. The soul no longer
with its Maker face to fuce conversed.
And that delicate and beautiful physical I
organization which had hitherto been the
avenue of only the most, delicious enjoy
ment, now felt in every f,bre the capacity
for pain, and wai liable to decay din-ase
ind death. It is the province of all true
science to lead man back to that state from
whence he has so miserably fallen to
te-ach him tha arena of wis loin, to raise
his soul in sublime communion with tho
highest and best, to free as far as possible
his physical organization from that imper
fection and suffering of which he is the
acknowledged hereditary possessor. Med
icine ws among the frst of sciences to
engage in this noble work. It soon dis
covered that the Creator had furnished
many palliatives and remedies for the suff
ering of the body. To man's earliest in
quiries, his ingenuity wrought out me
chanical appliances. And for his diseases
the earth furnished medicinal herbs con
tributing something at least to his relief
and recovery. Thus opens tho history of
m n0, winch Iv'M filled lice world with Itn
virtues and its blessings. Although med
icine iii a rude form must have had an ex-
istanco ca-li r than law or theology, yet
we know comparatively nothing of its his
tory until nearly' four thousand years with
many millions of men hud passed away
A little more than two thousand years ago,
he whom tho profession delights to ac
knowledge as the father of medicine, the
loved and honored Hippocrates made his
appearance. In his huudt!, under tho in
fluence of his practical mind and gifted
genius', the healing art received ii scientific
form, which has not been materially altered
to. this day.' Favored willi no books or
authorities except thoso' "that were purely
traditionary, ho applied himself to the stu
dy of diseaso at the' bedside of the' sick
and by experiment 'fetid : observation laic
tho foundation 'of medical science.' - Wri
ting elaborately and lucidly on a va'rtt va
riety of mod'ical subjects. In tho; run
drcd arid thirty-first year of tho christian
era Galen arose (it Ronio and soon became
the great luminary ;of that andsucceedin
figes. ' His wcrks wero admitted as hbso
