TUG DUELLO Of WOIIDS.
Every Plug Ugly would delight in any
kind of a fight. He is full of the animal
instincts which ally man with the lower or
der of creation. Not only may you lake
Louisville, Baltimore or Washington City
for an example; but the rowdy spirit can
be seen in any town, eager for "a muss,"
and full of blood and muscle—sometimes
of bad whiskey. In less refined nges
this instinct delighted ill gladiatorial dis
plays of personal prowess; and in coun
tries where tlie animal nature is stronger
than the spiritual it still takes pleasure in
8411-flgUts und performances of- that kind.
Even among hot-bloods of our own the du
ello is yjjt well known. Therefore we say,
the restless, hot-blood which is so eager for
a gladiatorial fray between Gen. Packer and
Judge Wilmot does not ask it for the men
tal or moral enlightening of tho public, but
pimply to have a "row"—to excite passions
and to iiiflamo the prejudices of fanatics
and bigots. Tho history of the Crusades, of
Popish gun-powder, meal-tub and Titus-
Oates' plots, and of witch-burning in this
country illustrate how this game is played
by hypocrites and demagogues upon the
passionate and the simple.
Do they want cool and candid discussion?
NVhy then did these Same men only three
years ago load their dupes into dens of mid
night darkness to take horrid oaths ol secrecy
and of eternal hostility against their human
brethren 1 A pretty set truly are these to
nsk for public discussion now. But there has
been, and there will be until the election,
enough discussion to gratify them, and to
enlighten the public on all the issues truly
in controversy.
True, there was three years ago an epi
sode from the main performance to which
we'have alluded. We mean the prostitu
tion of a great moral principle to the gain
of political gamesters. But it is quite cer
tain that the Opposition candidate will not
now discuss that pint, unless in the lager-1
beer saloons in a practical way to catch
votes.
'■ The old respectable Federal and Whig
parlies prided themselves on possessing
"all the decency and intelligence" of the
country; but their degenerate successors
prefer the drunken vulgarity of Tom Ford
to the arguments of any other speaker.—
Surely it would be wasting the pearls of
•■■■lH I* PliaotoUa hl-lnfi' theso
men, and he who cofihl gain til L'ir fl|rpluuee
would -have cause for everlasting self-re
proach. Take for instance a man who
thinks that to yantrast Henry Clay with
Seward and Johnson as "Hyperion to a
Satyr" is abusing Clay, .and is it a wonder
that he prefers Toftt Ford to every body
else. From such an auditor a foul anecdote
would gain loud applause, and reasoning
fall still born.

A Chestnut street jeweler was swindled
out of a set of jewels' aoiouming to two
hundred and fifty dollars, a few days since, in
a manner so common in these times that wo
wonder the act could not have been foreseen.
I A 6astiy looking Jouittlwilliig Trom St. I.suls,-
who was stopping at the St. Lawrence, com
mitted the fraud. He called at the store, ex
amined jewelry and requested that a clerk
might go with him to bis room at the hotel
and bring the goods with him. The swindler
politely invited the clerk to be seated, while
he look the goods to the ladies' parlor to
show lo his wile. The clerk complied and
delivered the goods to lite strange*, when the
latter dissappeared in the direction of the la
dies' parlor. The clerk waited for a hour, and
then went to hunt up the stranger, but neither
goods nor purchaser have been seen subse
quently. The search of the police for the
young St. Louisiun proves totally unavailing.

A CHARACTERISTIC THICK.— It is slated that
Wilinot hs resigned his Judgeship. We
hope this is so—hut why didn't he resign
sooner, so as to give the people of his dis
trict an opportunity, at the ensuing October'
election, of filling the office for the period
of len years? The answer is easilly given.
He has very little, if any, hopo ol an election
to the Gubernatorial chair—consequently
r.ext year, when the people are constitution
ally authorized lo act, (which can only he
done when the resignation lakes place three
calendar months before a general election,)
Wilmot will again step forwatd and be elec
ted lo the Judicial office ! Had he resigned
sooner, an election would have beon held
(Iris year, and his successor commissioned
for the full term. As it is, Governor Pollock
will now appoint, which appointment holds
good until after the election of 1858. A
pretty shrewd trick on the part of the Black
Republican candidate lor governor, and alto
gether characteristic of the foul parly which
he represent.— Lancaster Intelligencer.
UNITED STATES SUVA rous—The legisla
tures of Tennessee, Virginia, Texas, Ken
tucky and Alabama are to elect United
States Senators at their next sessions. Ton
nessee harstochoosc two. Hunter and Wiso
are prominent candidates in Virginia. Ex-
Governor Powell, Ex-Secretary Guthrie,
Hon. Geo. W. Johnson, Hon. Wm. Preston,
and Hon. John W. Stevenson are spoken of
in Keutuoky by the Democrats. Gen. Mc-
Cullough, tho Texan Rangor, will probably
bo Gen. Rusk's successor from Texas.

The Uinvctl Mnn Fuuutl u( Last.
General Jdcktfon left a gold snufl box to Iba
city authorities to be awarded to the individ
ual, a eon of New York, who should most
distinguish himself in the next war which
occurred. Ever since the Mexican war, the
discussion has been lively in reference to the
person who deserved this special mark of
merit. Various claimants have been put for
ward, and a joint commitHe of Councils,have
had Ihe mailer under consideration. They
have at fks! reported that the box should be
awarded to Major Garrett W. Dyckman, of
the First Ilegiment of New Yoik Volunteers.
The Committee stated (hat they would not
presume to make the announcement that
Major Dyckman was the bravest man in the
New York Regiment, but that he possessed
every other essentml requisite of a sokJier and
an officer; and besides performed many acts
of remarkable bravery, which distinguished
him particularly from his fellov officers.—
The gold box is now in the possession of
Andrew Jackson, Jr., ihe adopted son of the
old General, to whom it had been committed
for safe keeping, and who intends to bring it
to New York in person. The ptestmlalien
will take place on the 1 Fill of September, and
as much dignity as possiblo will be commu
nicated to the occasion, by a turn out of the
military, speeches, dinners, etc.— Ledger.
ANOTUKK LOOPHOLE rosMm. CUWNINOIUM.
Law is one of the exact sciences, arid requires
mathematical certitude in each of the steps
of a proceeding beforo it imposes a disquali
fication or a penalty. Mrs. Cunningham, by
tho hasty proceeding of the District Attorney,
itas r.ol only the advantage which isanpposed
to arise from not having fully consummated
the crime which she had intended, but Fhe
has also a chance of escape through another
loophole left open by the premature proceed
ing. It is contended by the legal profession
that Mrs. Ctmninglianf would not come with
in the statute against palming off a supposi
titious heir to the property, unless it is deci
ded in the Surrogate's Court that she is actu
ally the wife of Dr. Burdell. In Ihe words of
the statute it is essential to the crime that the
child fraudulently produced should be pro
duced "as the child of parents whose child
would be entitled to inherit." If Mrs. Cun
ningham was not married to Dr. Bordell, the
child produced, supposing it to have been her
own, couldtnot legitimately be the heir of
the deceased, and therefore the porsonslion
does not fall within the terms of the statute,
which calls for Iho personation of an infant
born of parents whose child tcou/d be eutitled
to inherit.

CP" Artesian wells have become very gen
eral throughut the West, within a few years
past, especially in Wisconsin. They are usu
ally abont four inches in diameter. In boring
them it is very seldom that rock is encoun
tered. The soil, (or the most part, is clay.
In excavating the clay a hollow iron cylinder
is employed, about three feet in length, the
ower end of whiclu|jleel, and is kept sharp.
In the cylinder, near the bottom, is a valve,
which allows the clay, aa the instrument is
driven downward, to press op into the cylin
der. When this cylinder is full, it is drawn
op by a windlass—the valve closing as the
clay presses downward,and so retaining its
load,— Attached the tQp of
the cylinder is an iron rod, with the thread of
a screw on the top, by means of which anoth
er rod, longer or shorter, according the depth
of the well, is made to connect with the cyl
inder. When a rock is struck, a heavy dril]
is used, operated by n machine made for lite
purpose.—Ledger.
NEAL FOW IN DUBLIN. —NcaI Dow, the au
thor of the Maine Law, has been entertained
at a public banquet ill the Rotundo, Dublin,
by Mr. James llaughlon anil others. This
llaughton is a notorious friend of "civiliza
tion" and Abulitionism. He is a corn mer
chant by profession, but philanthropy is his
trade. There is scarcely a subject on which
ho has not written letters to the newspapers,
lie is cxhaustiess in his public efforts to do
good for humanity—for the slaves of the
Southern States, for instance; but when
the famine was in Ireland, this good soul
llaughton stored his corn, kept up the price,
daily speechified on the necessities of the
times, and by night had to throw his corn,
which had grown musty, into tlie Liffoy.—
Such is tho chief weicomer of Neal Dow, to
Dublin.

OSWEGO STARCH*
(FOR THE LAUNDRY.)
IT AS established a greater celebrity than
.baa ever been obtained by any other
Starch.
This has been the result of its marked su
periority in quality, and its invariable uni
formity.
The public may bo assured of the eonlinu
t ance of the high standard now established.
The production ia over Twenty Tons daily,
and the demand hae extended throughout (lie
whole ol the United Slates, and to foreign
countries.
Workiug (but on a very laige scale, and 1
under a rigid system, they are able to secure
a perfect and uniformity in ihequality tsrough
out the year. This is the great Desideratum
in Slaroh-makiog, and is realized now (or
the first time.
The very beat March that ean be made,and
n# other, is always wai ted by consumers,
and while this will be supplied to thera by
the grocer*, as soon as their customers have
learned which ia tbe beat, and ask for it
otherwise they would be likely to get that
article on which the largest profit can be
made.
Mr. Kingsford baa been engaged in the
manufacture of starch continuously for the
last 27 years, and during the whole of the
period, the starch made under hie supervis
ion has besn, bevond anv question, the beat
in the market. For the first 17 year*, be had
the charge ol the work* ol Win. Colgate &
Co.) at which period he invented tbe process
of the .manufacture of corn starch.
Ur Asijor Kingsford'i Starch, at the name
Oswego has recently been taken l>y another fac
tory,
T. KINGSFORD & SON'S
OSWEGO CORN STARCH,
{For Puddings, Ifc.,)
Has obtained an equal celebrity with their
Starch for the Laundry. This article is per
fectly pure, and ia, in every respect, equal to
the beat Bermuda Arrow-Root, besides hav
ing additional qualities which render it inval
uable for the dessert.
Potato Siarob has been extensively packed
and sold aa Corn Starch, and baa given false
impressions to many, as to the real merits of
our Corn Starch.
From its great delicacy and purify, it it
coming also into extensive aee as a diet lor
