The pro-slaveryites have two favorite
ways of attacking the American Democrat
ic party, which they use according to lati
tude. In the Southern States they call the
new movement an abolition scheme. In
the Northern States in order to escape
detection, imitating the thief who has
turned a corner, cries "stop tli.-fj" so
they, contrary to all evidence, positive and
circuiUKtuntiul, of precept and example,
wnuld charge us iu the North with favor
ing slavery extension. And, as if piling
cm the last straw to break the back of
Young America, they would frighten the
timid by saying, we cannot have a nation
al party, with discordant elements North
and South.
Very well to accommodate our good
neighbors, who must have something to
.talk about, and for the want of better ar
guments, mast belie thoso horriblo 'Know
Nothings,' we will allow them the gatifi-
cutionof their formidable bngaboo. What
then ? Jost reverse the argument a mo
ment, thus : -The Know Nothings cannot
form a national party, because in the North
t hey oppose SJavery, and in the South they
support it. The conservative Democ
racy form the national party, because
they, bowing tlie kuco to Raul, support
slavery South and North. They are the
Kutivnat S'ave Democracy ! Bo it so.
If to form national party it is required
that the principles of Washington and
Jefferson, the true American principles for
which our revolutionary fathers fought,
bled and diod, arc now to be crushed out
by tho despotic hoel of Slavery, then, we

The Shame and Glorj of the"
Medical Profession..
No. 2.
.Mr. Editor: It is undoubtedly true
that the medical profession are guilty of a
vast "variety of faults' and criminal defects.
Those which I de-liga )o,exhibit, may be
divided inb several classes and in each I
must be brief. V ' ' 1 "-'-.
Tho first that cjaim attention, are those
grewing out,xf defective education. ' It
is vain to attempt concealment jf this fart
There are those in the ftledicsl profession,
especially In our own 'country - who are
astonishingly and disgracefully deficient in
every department ofJearning. Foripcrly
great numbers and at tho present day not
a few commence tliij study of Medicine
without having acouirca a knowledge of
the fundamental branches taught in com
mon schools. They come from the plane
the work-shop from various avocations
and some from no uvqcathju at all, en-
tirely -unlettered uni unprepared for ) the
office nf the physician and commence their
studies actuated by various and contradic
tory motives, i Efouie come froman! aver
sion to manual labor, others are attracted
by- tta houorablo position, of - ihe .medical p!f
profession, others are supposed by their
jriends to be endowed with uncommou ge
nius a few are seventh sons and thoreforc
must be physicians. While not a few--must
it be said not a few are persuaded
absolutely by physicians mainly for their
own convenience thus unprepared to aspire
to enter immediately into tho ranks of a
learned profession.. .
Another class of young men, and per
haps the larger of the two, have received
the elements of a common education, but
are entirely ignorant of the higher branches
of English while the classics, and tho
dead languages, are to them dead- in-
A portion of this class impelled by a
generous ambition and lofty asperations for
usefulness and distinction by availing them
selves of every opportunity and by coiv
stant toil against every discouraging cir
cumstance make themselves really useful
and attain a creditable standing in the
profession. While others devoid of almost
every necessary acquisition are content to
grovel in ignorance of tho fundamental
principles of medical science, resorting to
low tricks and every species of chicanery
in order to maintain a physical existence
How could it bo otherwise than that
such brethern should hang as n millstone
around the neck of the medical profession
and draw down upon it iufuiny and the
contempt of all honorable men.
Another feature of our position which
is deeply to be regretted is a want of bar
mony among the members of the profess
i.m. Indued it hoa long oinoo g.A6nod into
a proverb the Doctors disagree. Yet
while we confess the truth of the proverb
to a cortain extent and acknowledge with
shame, that there is perhaps more jealousy
and discord among physicians than is usu
ally among other classes, following similar
pursuits; we do not ncquieoe in the com
mon opinion that tho cause of such disa
greement is attributable to themselves,
but very much at least to circumstances by
which they are surrounded. Nothing is
more common, and at the same time few
things are more unjust than to denounce a
physician for faults and misfortunes which
to a great extent arc beyond his control.
For instance a man under the care of a
ccrtidn physician, finally recovers from a
severe illness; the grateful patient, sec
onded by his friends, unite in trumpeting
the extraordinary skill of the physician
and attributo his recovery to little less
than hiiraculous power. Another man is
attacked with a violent disease, mid em
ploys another physician who exerts the
same assiduity and skill ; but the patient
sinks and dies; great dissatisfaction pre
vails, tho friends do not hesitate to de
nounce the medical attendant, and call the
patient's death little less than murder in
tho first degree. Neither of these physi
cians arc treated justly. Ono is ns unde
serving of his laurels, as the other of his
curses. Yet the former triumphs and per
haps exults over the latter.
Is it astonishing that there should be
heart-burnings between theso equally skill
ful men. Is it unojtural that the fires of
jealousy should burn in the hearts of these
physicians, whose interests bo severely
clash, particularly if kindled and furnish
ed with fuel by a capricious and impass
ioned community whose slanderous tongues
are full of venomed spile against the hum
ble yet faithful physician.
Not unfrequcntly these heroes of Mad
am Gossip nro members of the Christian
church, and us they pass from house to
houso visiting the sick, apd trying to in
fluence all to employ their physician, they
remind one of the song of the fish-pond:
There's surely room for each'fish
Life's pleasure to enjoy.
But forsooth, llieirobjrct'wenis
( Each other to destroy.
You see t'lem ou the run sir,
Engngrd in mortal utrifo,
The largo for food and fun sir,
The miinll ones for their life.
Thus exhibiting a beautiful comment upon
thoir so-called religion.
: Again there is no earthly employment
which demands tho controling influence of
higher moral principles, than tho profession
of medicine.
It is well known that tho physician is
constantly assuming tho care of cases,
whose issuos depond npon Lis skill and
attention, nnd which from Ms i;rnorneC)
carelessness or neglect might terminate fa
tally, without any human beinj ever sus
pcoting the causo. How dare any but tho
most conscientious, upright, moral man
ever assunio so fearful responsibility. ' Yet
it is true, the iguorant, reckless empirie is
doing daily." i ' " x;. . !
The history of quackery shows how yell
they endcrstarid ; the remark' of an j old
writer, "the. lucky cases arc trumpeted
to the four winds, whilst the earthburies
their numerous failures beneath a heavy
weight of fearful responsibility. u

Mr. Editor: Dear Sir: It may, not
be uninteresting for your American readers
to be made acquainted with the arguments
uaed by tho opponents of the American
party,at-the Tetojrtclecmr-TTT-BnfMo,

The Arrison Cise-Its Singular
Position. A motion for a tu 1 has
been granted to this person convicted i-f
murder in the first degree, by having caus
cd the death of two persons by the aid of
an ".infernal machine." Several objec
tions were raised by the prisoner's counsel,
all of which excepting one, were overruled.
It was on the ninth piint, that Judge Flinn
had erred in his charge to the jury ; the
Court found sufficient ground for a new
trial. Judge Flinn had stated to the ju
ry,' "If you find the defendant guilty you
must find him guilty of murder "in the first
. It was not said that they might convict
of manslaughter, and no discretion was left
thorn in regard to auy other grade of crime
The jury were therefore instructed to find
a verdict in a form which the law did not
authorize. The case was therefore reman
ded to the Court of Common Pleas for a
new trial Thereupon tho Cincinnati Ga
zette remarks as follows :
This case as it now stands, is an anomal
ous one. In consequence of this order re
manding it to the Court pf Common Pleas,
it cannot go back to the Criminal Court,
even ehould that be decidca still in being.
The Act of tho Legislature transferring
the business of the Criminal Court to the
Court of Common Picas, is so defective
that it may bo declared null and void, and
if so. Arrison cannot be tried by that court.
So the caso may come to be entirely out of
the jurisdiction of any tribunal.
A question may arise as to whether the
District Court can recall the order mado
yesterday moruing, and remand tho case
to another court ; but before tho legal ex
istence of the Criminal Court is decided
upon, the District Court will probably have
adjourned, and will not moot again until
September. ; .-
Should, in the meantime, the act trans
ferring the business of the Criminal Court
be declared void, and Arrison then be bro't
forth on a writ of Uuhcat Corpus, we do
not see how any court could refuse to grant
his discharge.
So between defective enactments of the
Legislature, and erroneous charges of the
Judges of the Criminal Court, all laws may
become inoperative, and tho gravest of all
charges seems likely to escape not only
punishment, but even trial. ,

AbnerL FrazrB ad of Public Works.
One of the. most important cuVj.es to be
filled at our October election is undoubted
ly that of a mombcr.of the Board of Pub
lic Works. The people of Ohio do not
surely need to be reminded of the uccesii
ty. for reform in the management of their
great avenues of trade, in which they have
invested so much capital,, and in the prop
er .management of which, their interests
are so deeply involved. If the powerful
appeals for this reform, which have recent
ly been made h) them, tLrpugli the medi
um of their pockets does not avail, it would
be useless to multiply words. Relieving
that thopeople are alive to the importance
of these matters, and that they intend to
continue the good work, so well commen
ced last fall, it is with pleasure that I see
announced the name of Abncr L. Frazcrf
of Stcubenville, as a candidate for the
nomination to. this office at the Republican
Convention to be held in July, .knowing
that, his election would secure to the State,
the services of un active, competent officer,

Is not this sufficient evidcuco ' to 'the

Do not their strenuous efforts : to., cent

Member of the Board of Public

very responsible office,' we see in the True

spoken of and recommended for this'oflice.
For tho past fifteen years Mr. Frazcr, has
been engaged on our most important can

a fund of practical knowledge, possessed by
but few, aud with this kuowledgo is .com
bined a liberal and impartial spirt of pub

unflinching, uncomprising honesty and in
tegrity, joined to his other qualifications,
eminently fit him for a member of the
Board of Public Works; and his wide spread
popularity and great strength" to tho Re-
publican ticket, should ho ree'eivo "tho
nomination of that party. Cincinnati Ga

The Popular VERDicT.-p-tn the recent
contest totween Senator Brooks' and Arch
bishop Hughes, the unanimous verdict of
the press appears to bo that the Archbish
op got worsted. The' Philadelphia 1 Sdn
sums up thO matter thus: '.'It will be te
membered that Mr, Brooks "charged that
the Archbishop held large amouuts of prop
erty', to which the evasive a nawcr was-given
by the latter that he only owned his li
brary and tho bed on which ho slept ; Mr.
Brooks copied from the Court records to
I show ono hundred and ono d'efida of lots
deded to him This vast accumulation
of property in the bauds of a Romish Bish
op was rogardod as dangerous, thcreforo
Mr. Brooks' sought to cxposo itjUnd tho
prelate enly answered by billingegatc, bra
vado, and disgraceful evasions. The .Sen
ator jn every essential particular lm prov
ed his assertions nnd maintained his ground,
while the Archbishop endeavors to escape
by ploadiug that he holds the property only
for tho Catholic. Church and this,1 it ftp
pears to uh, is the very charge ,kst advan
ced by the Senator, for ho was exposing
the dangerous aggression- Of- vroalth and
