Take the spade of perseverance, Dig tha field ot Progress wide, Every rotten root of .faction Hurry out and cast aside ; Every stubborn weed of Error, Every teed that hurts tho soil, Tares, whose very growth ia terror— dDig them out, whate'er the toil! <sivo the stream of Education Broader ohannel, bolder foreo; Ulurl the atones of Persecution Out where'er they block its conrse. Seek for strength in self-oxsrtion; Work, and stiH have faith to wail; Close tho crooked gate to fortune, Make tho road to honor straight. Men are agents for the Future; As they work so ages win .Either harvest of advancement Or tho product of their sin. Follow out iruo cultivation, Widen Education's plan, From the Majesty of Nature Teach the Majesty of Man. Tako the spade of Porsovorcnce, Dig tho field of Progress wido, Every bar to truo instruction Carry out and cast asido; Feed tho plant whoso food is Wisdom. Cloanse from orimo tho common sod, ■So that from tho throne of Heaven It may bear Ik# gtancO'Of God. From the ruldic LeJgtr. nvfladclpla and the Lake Ratlronds. Tha people of ovcry Stato in the Union sidlurally fool an •elevated pride in the wealth magnitude and prosperity of their chfof commorcial city. It is thoir first to open and cultivate a business intcroourso in tboir own Stato before they advanco boyond its borders to outer tlio markot of tho com parative strangor, with whom thoro does not exist tho same feeling of brotherhood a* *t home. To foster this generous impulse, howovor, it is tho duty SB it is the interest of tho commercial metropolis of a Stato to ; keep pace with its neighbors in the construe- ; lion and maintenance of the most approved modes of travel and importation. If this bo shunned eft neglected in this go ahead age, now interests will grow up and fresh associations will be formed, indepen dent 6f lines, which, in the end, will merely smothot tho yearnings of Stato prido, but will gonorhto in its stead a feeling near ly akin to reproach or dislike. If Philadel phia would prevent Iho growth of this fool ing in Pennsylvania, sho must extend her iron arrtts SAW fiso hdrthorn counties. Smco the comyfteffoii of tho New York and Erio Railroad, wlVteh penetrates into two coun tlal khid tuns near the lino of sovon other •counties, tho trade Of at IcAst eleven coun ties, exceeding it nroA and importance tho entire State of Now Jersey, has been divert ed to thFclty of Now Ydrk 1 The quickest and most convenient communication now •opeh betwoen Philadelphia And tha northern counties of Pennsylvania is through the city of New York. It is nbt Strange, thlsn, that the citizen* of those bounties should make their purchases and sales in New YOtk, be cause the railroad facility df that city enablo ( them to do o te better advantage than in Philadelphia. Thia is not tho result of choicd rtn their part, but of circumstances which they did not control; foe Ike people of that beautiful and plentiful mountain region are a state loving people, and only await the action of Fhiladelfltna to sweH her ■commerce with the products of their abundant harvests. Phils* delphia has it in her power not only to re claim the trade of Northern Pennsylva nia, but aleo to secure a share of tho South western trade of New York. By a connec tion with the Now York and Erie Railroad, ehe can p'ace herself at a less distance from Buffalo and Dunkirk than the city of New York, and at the same time open a railroad communication between the Atlantic Days sai the voters of the Lakes. And as Phii adotptua will hove to contribute the larger portion of the funds to build this road, Its 10~ rotten becomes to her s mottor of the first importuned. From Philadelphia to * distance of 98 miles, o railroad is now In suCCP'stui, onotation ; from Tama<]ua to Cotlowissa, 44 miles, o rood is partly graded and bridged ft is safe to assume, ton, that from Phila delphia to Cattawissa, a distance of 142 mites, the route is already fixed. From Cat tawissa there are two projectod routes, one tb Williamspott, and thenco to Elmira on the N. Y. and Brie R. R.; tho other to Tow anda, and thence to Waverly, on the N. Y. and Erie R. R. The distance to Elmira, via WilUatneport is 121 milos, and to Waverly, viaTowanda, not exceoding 79 miles. From Philadelphia to Elmira 963 m. " " Waverly, 221 m Difference in favor of route to Waverly, 42m BLOOMSBHRG, COLUMBIA COUNTY. PA., THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER. 11, 185 J. From Waverly to New York, 260 m a a Philadelphia, 221 m Difference in favor of Philadelphia, 45m The Towanda route presents no natural obstacles to be ovorcomo that are not mot with on the IViJllamsport route. Nor is it true, as lias been stated over and over again in tho public prints, that tho road from Wil linmsport to Elmira is in course of construc tion ; for to this timo tho roulo north of Rals ton lias not not boon nyrood upon, nor has that most essential olomonf, money, yet boon raisod ! Tho Towanda route, which would leave the valloy of tho North Branoh at ! Fishing Creek, would again otrtor it by the Towanda Crook, and.thonce follow tho riv er through the rich and populous county of Bradford, to the State Li te at Waverly. Again : It ia porfoctly obvious to OTery one who has examined tho subject, that eve many years olapso, a railroad will be con structed along the great valley of the Sus quehanna, and thus will be established com munications with Baltimore as well as Phil adelphia by that route ; also, that a railroad will bo built along tho valley of the Lehigh to Easton, and thence byway of Somervillo to Now York. Cattawissa will than become the point whence railroads will diverge to the three oities—to Philadelphia by th® Schuylkill valloy, to Baltimore by tho Sus quehanna valley, and to New York by the Lehigh valloy. Tho rolativo dietancos are as follows: ... From Cattawissa to Philadelphia, 142 m ii ii Baltimore, 158 m it II New York, 179 m Differonco in favor of Philadelphia, against Baltimore, 16 miles. Differenoo in favor of Philadelphia, against New York, 37 miles. By tho oxtonsion of a railroad from Polts ville, te connect with tho Cattawissa road, the distanco from Cattawissa te Philadelphia con bo reduced te considerably bolow 142 miles, and tints, por consoquonco, die dis tanco against Baltimore and New York, will bo correspondingly incroasod. But, before Cattawissa can bo reached, Philadelphia must complete the road from Tamaqua, 44 miles, most of which is ready te receive tho rails. Baltimore must build 70 miloi of newTead, and Now York must btrild 529 mites of now road to porfoct thoir I connections. And oven whon thoso connec tions shall bo mado, Philadelphia can tap tho Baltimore Branch at llarrislurg, and tho New York branoh at Allontown and Easton, and thus coiilrol tho wholo throe roads. Dunkirk to Now Voik, via Erio Railroad, 479 miles. Dunkirk to llriladolphis, via WaverlyTn maqtta, 425 miles. Dunkirk to Baltimore, via Waverly and Hstrisburg, 441 miles. Dunkirk to New York, via Cattawisaa and Easton, 462 miles. It wiH be seen from tlioso figures that by tho route from Cattawissa to Waverly, Phil adelphia, and Baltimore can both eocuro a nearer connection with Dunkirk than tho city of New York, while the lattor city can secure a connection eight mites shorter than tlto present travelled route ovor tho Erie Kailroa I. Tlio only legislation wliioh is necessary to carry out this scheme is, to revive the chaY tcrof a road from Cattawissa to Towanda, with additional authority to extend the road to Wavcrly. This can readily bo obtained, bocanso no valid objections could be urged against it. By tho building of this road Philadelphia cad win back tho estranged counties of the north, and open a profitable businoss intercourse with that garden re gion of the State. Sho can thus, too socuro a highway to the bakes, along which soenes of surpassing granduro and natural beauty would everywhere greet the eyo, anil over which would pass and repass tho summer - roving thousand of tho land. ilxMr. A GOOD SPEECH- There It something good and new in the following oxtract from a speech lately deliv ered at YVilkesbarre by a young Democrat— Dr. E. B. Miner:— Locofocoi, for that is the term by which our opponents lovo to call us; I suppose Ad am to have been a Democrat. All the pic tures of the old book so represent him, man of good common sense, but a little too much under tho influence of woman. Whcth lor he ever attended a Delegate election, or voted • printed tiobet is of no moment. ! think Ahab was a Whig Nebuchadnezzar an Anti Mason, and Judas Iscariot a Homeo pathic Doctor. There wore many Democrats among tho Jaws, Mosos, and Aaron and Abraham woro all sound Republicans, but Lot and Balaam were probably Whigs. Under our froo insti tutions, how iu the name of Truth can a Jew be o Whig ? One would suppose that he had tastod from power the cup of affliction to the very uregS. Did not their very exislonco as a nation comment 0e iron of j Egypt f—Did not the Assyrinn come down i like a wolf on the fold, upon th little land ot Palestine ? Did he not lay waste her cities and cause her eons to hang their harps 1 in sorrow uyon the willows of Euphrates? Did not Alexandor though his courso was on ward and bis eye fixed With an Eagle's gazo upon the diadem of Cyrus, tarry in his courso to rivet the chains upon the limbs of the Li on of Judah ? And at last when imperial Romo reared her colossal powor over tho Kingdoms, and pointed to tho North and South—to the East and the West, nnd bade her legions speed for the spoils ot r conquer ed world, was Judah spared? An Englishman is naturally opposed to nomocracy, but that an Irishman who has felt the yoko of Kingly despotism until his rory soul case is trodden ont t him should bo a Whig, puzzles mo boyond calculation. Is it nothing that the shores of a Democrat ic continont almost advance to greol him and hand him the Diploma ot Freedom from all intolerance 1 Is it nothing that we have pla ced upon our Ticket a man against whom oho shafts of Protestant Bigotry liavo boon •hurled and whom Native Americans would scourge to martyrdom * Realize then Irish men that the purposo of Democracy is tho principlo of popular rights and of civil and religious liberty. Tho subject of slavery, FoHow citizens, is n fruitful thomo for tho locturo room exhor tations of tho Whigs. Tho poor slavo, his groans, his nakodnoss, his sufferings and his toars. Are not wretchedness and misery the common inheritance of our racoT Are not joy and sorrow, boat and oold, night and day, hope and despair everywhere 1 The term is not, strictly speaking, a phil osophical term. Many a man with gilded roof and tinselled tapestry and a horde of de pondonts, thousands into whoso oar famo and wealth havo poured tboir richest notes are miserable slaves indeed. It may bo a fair question whetiier tho slaves of tho South do not onjoy as much, food as well, and livo as happily as any of the samo number of tho human racn. Ask the poor man with hie numerous fam ily, his daughters at sorvico any where, choa tod, tempted beyond endurance, exposed to insult and worse, whether the education o< society bis not imposed upon him every amount of anxiety—tho vory worst of sla very. Ask tbo minors in our coal mines, worked from daylight to twilight, now blown up, now torn almost to atoms, store pay and doubtful fish as his sNponod, whothor ho has any idea that tho slavery of tho woll cored for nogro of the south, is as tho Dpuglassos and Tappans represent it. Ask the deluded nogro himself who was promised protection whon ho flod there, and who was so gallantly givon up after six months labor and the loss of his banjo in tho bargain, what ha thinks of tho compara tive happiness of southorn slavery and notyli" orn honor as lie found it. A curso and not a Messing, contempt and not opprobation rest upon 6uch virluo oithor in man or woman, as has its 'origin in Tho more sensibilities of our nature. In OUT own country Thomas Jefferson first gavo tho direction to onr government which lift* foil to nnnli happy MMtlra. A mighty nation sprang as by magic from a few feeble colonies, will as long as -it exists, wo its healthful ami vigorous growth to the impress ot his Republican procopts, teachings, ami example. We have roared this polo to iocito to en thusiasm, as a alamlard and rallying point in the coming election. Wa hopo for genera tions to come, to continue tiro virtrto of our political faithf—the faith of the Democratic party. Col. Bigler is the candidate seloctoj unan imously from a party whoso vote counts i nearly two hundred thousands, lie is by ( birth,-by education, hi heart and soul in this j great contost beloro us, the advocate of Pop- ■ ular rights. Popular tights, Follow citizens, I nro tho natural prey of the aristocracy.— j They havo over walkeo thoir way in danger | and owe their sound existence and rapid J growth to tho steady and well dirccteJ offurts of the Democratic party. Mon may orr—men will orr-*-mon do err- Princijtles are eternal. Popular rights, if they still flourish, must forovor bo indobtod to tho vigilance, union and spirit of Democ racy. Lot mo then abjuro you by your love of liberty end your country nover to be woa ry in well doing. Lot no jealousies distract, let no sinister influences divide you, but be truo to yourself, your cause, and your coun try. I wish 1 could mako my voico hoard through every valley, to ovorjr mountain top in Pennsylvania. 1 would say, awake! a> riso! tho Philisrinos, Sampson, aro upon you!

ThoGenooso afterwards made it from grain, and sold it as a modicino in bottlos, under tbo namo of tho water of life. Until tho eixtconth century it had only boen kept by apothecarios as modicino During tho roign of Henry VII. brandy was unknown in Ire land, and soon its alarming offucts induced tho government to pass a law prohibiting its matiufocturo.
