We presume that uo one of our numeroui rea ders, has lorgotten the oft repnated and never-lo-le-loii(.itten assertion, that Taylor in a second Washington. They will some day wish they "had'ul said that last " For there was new made, a more rediculuus assertion i nor drawn, a mote incongruous comparison. Taylor's course since his inauguration, has not been such as to redeem this pledge of hi friends, nor to impress the people in his favor. There is another point in the character of this man, our most Escellent pledge lovi.ig Clue! Magistrate, which striken usss somewhat singular. They any that Taylor hales war. They asserted that he was opposed to the war with Mexico, and that he fought it through, because he was ordered to do so by President James K. Polk, Now if this Mexican War was unjust, unholy, unrighteous and God abhorred; then it was wrong. If General Taylor thought thus, he should not have finiiiht it, nay, he should havs cot off his right hand, belore he drew s sword in this accursed war ! Would Wellington have toted thus? Would he have drawn a sword in war to which ha was opposed? Would he have permitted himself to become a candidate for ollicei tithe lead of a party who apposed the war in which he gained his laurels. Would he have surrounded himself with Mich Cabinet advisers .' Men who suppoited him only upon the question of expediency ? Men who are not hound to him by any ties but those seven, the five loaves and two fishe, which hcan apportion out to I he in. If when they sk for fish he give them atone, the bubble will burst, and he will with himself once more in Mexico. A Lender. Upon the Second page ol Newspaper, it is always expected that I hare- should be a quantity of Editorial. And, in fact, it is usually expected and intended that it should come up in solid column But to our notion a close, compact, solid column of political editorial, is a very for midable looking thing. Now we scarcely know upon what subject to dish you Hp a spicy article. The letters of Gen Taylur have been dreesed up with the Wilmot Proviso at one time, and with Abolitionism at mother, and with Slavery at a third. Hank, Tariff and Free Soil; Giddings, Hale and Van Buren, have been fried, tagouted and Barbecued, until there is no possible way in which to do them up, o that they may be piquant, spicy and pal liable. Mister Fot Master General Collamer might come up for a share of our most special and polite attention But, if the Post Master General has the approbation of his Chief in the wholesale de capitation of Democratic office-holder j then, the head of the Post Ollice Department is but little t blame in this matter ; but this anti-ultra-whig-no-party President, who had no friends to reward, and no enemies to punish; who had no parly to build up ; who would be the President of the peo ple, and not of a party ; mutt lie under the charge of having deliberately broken a deliberate pledge. In England the Ministry, (answering to our idea of Cabinet) is held responsible for all the measures propagated, and if the measure prove to be unpopular then the Ministry is dissolved, and a new Primier appointed. There, they act upon the motto, "The King can do no wrong " Here the case ia very difh-rsMt. The President, is, very properly, held responsible for all the arts of his administration. If then General Taylor were sincere in his professions, which we very much doubt, he should turn out thoso, any, or all of his Cabinet, whom he cannot otherwise control. Speaking on the subject of proscription, we as Democrats hold this opinion. If General Taylor had said "I am a whig and as such am willing to stand my chance for Election," then let his friends have the benefit of his triumph. The Ptesident has certainly obtained votes under false pretences. Why it in even on dil that General Peter Sken Smt h, an original Native American Taylorit", stand no dunce for the Collectorship ! There w.ll ho trouble in camp presently ntuml from under. The course of the President is inch as to alien ate from him entirely, the affections of both the Great Pa-tics of lha nation, Native Americans in cluded. We had thought the General old enough to get along without leading string. How he can TIIK DANVILLE BANK. The twenty. six Commissioners appointed to carry into effect the establishment if a Bank at Danville, to be railed "The Bank of Danville," have notified the public, that Rooks for the sub scription of Stork in said Bank, will benpencd at the Montour House, in Danville, on Monday, the Ihlh day of June, ensuing, and continue open three days if necessary. The capital stuck of said Rank, we believe, is two hundred thousand dol- ,r,, and Shares one hundred dollars each A fieasurer of said institution is to beelsrtcd at that I time and place Morgan llinchnau, an a fJ'itnrtt.

"Thlngt ice dont like to Stf." We dunt like to see a set of meo calling them selves tariff man, stopping their furnaces and roll ing mills their coal mines and their improve ments, and bawling "ruin," "ruin," until an im portant election was over ; and then, under the same law, putting them again in prosperous action. We dont like to see a parly promising to elect a no-party President; and then, when hie own pledges are hardly dry yet, becoming through his Cabinet a most violent and uncompromising Par tizan, Wa dont like to see a set of men preaching "re. form," and then creating an extra set of Judicial Districts in order that a little mors money may be divided among a few more men. We dont like to sea a party arrogating to itself all the decency, learning and honesty ; after having promised to restore the defunct Tariff of 1942, and then, when they hae lha power to force the re jection of it on lha Democracy, back out most beautifully, and continue, so far as Ihsy are able, the country under the blighting influence of the tariff of l4t. We dont like to see General Taylor suubbing the Native Americans, we dont! Thay were his earliest friends, and old Zack ehould'nt forget 'em rhilosophiftiiig. Some things can be done a well as others. Robin Hood, the celebrated English Robber used to divide among the poor, what be Hole from the rich. Rob Roy used to aay "Let those get who have the power, And let those keep who can !" There are a great many thing happen in thi world, entirely contrary to our most sanguine ex pectatien. Now in uch a state of things, there is but one thing that can afelj be done, and that i "keep cool 1" If you ahould happen to experience a certain (indefinable feeling or aensation in favor of any young lady, and he should decide not to have any thing to do with you, dont gel into a paasion and swear at a supposed rival ; but just put your hands in your pocket and "keep cool !" There i no use blusiering about it. If you do, everbody will find out that yeu got "the mitten" and they will laugh at you. If it should happen to creep out any other way, dont make a fuss about the Lady having told it, may be she dont consider herself very highly honored. Now there are a great many places where a maticaa get uncomfortably warm, for instance a fire in August, but even there, we would advise you to "keep cool !' People do a great many things they had'nt oughter, but you must make allowance for the frailty of human nature and ' keep cool !" St. Paul say, if it aint St. Paul it is somebody else just as good, "Let not the Sun go down on thy wrath." Now, after "closely thinking upon it," we opine that this it the meaning of the pas sageto wit: 'You may gat as mad as blaze during the day, but dont forget to let it boil over before sundown, so that during the "dark watches of the night" you can "keep cool !" If you want to stay mad a little longer, why we think you had better get up your dander just after "the sun has sunk behind the hill;" and then, you can remain mad all night and also the next day If then you fear you cant "keep cool" go out, if it happens to be in December, and sit down on the wood pile. If it should happen to be aumme-r time, climb a tree and Ret out of this troublesome world "keep cool !" If what we have said upon this subject should not pleaie you, why, we cannot help it. Dont get mad dear Reader, we were just trying to please you a little. We are not exactly the laughing Philosopher, but amid all the trying vicissitudes of life, we keep the right side up, and alway en deavor to "keep cool !" 4fi of July llonvcnUon.

The exemtric Joi n Randolph, of Roanoke, once upon a time, climbed a high hill in order to see the sun rising from tne Eastern liurriww. He watched the bright Luminary as it slowly seemed to emerge from the bosom of the ocean, in breathless silonce. At last turning to his fa vourite servant, who accompauicd him, he said "Jack, if any body ever say to you there is no God, tell him he lies!" If there is any time more than another, when the Heavens proclaim that there is a God and the glory of him, it is tho night. In the early evening, one after the other of the Planetary bo dies belonging to our system, appear in their or bits. Slowly, apparently, steadily and solemnly, they wheel their slated courses, and show forth the power of their creator. Fartherstill in the distance appear millions up on million of twinkling poinis.reaching far into the immensity of spaca. The courses of the itars have been marked by the finger of their God, and until they fall from the sky.they will continue in their respective courses upheld and ballanced by the power of their creator. "The moon arose the mists arc curled Bu-k from the solitary world !" The moon has a most oothing effect upon most people, To see its calm and silver light casting its mellow influence upon surrounding objects and giving room for greater flights, to an imaginative mind.
