Standing Committee.'
It is known by the Democracy that such
a Committee as a STANDING COMMITTER was
appointed at the Democratic County Con
vention last Fall, for the purpose of calling
County Conventions to elect or appoint Con
ferees to meet similar Conferees of die dif
ferent counties of onr district in Conference,
to appoint delegates to the Democratic State (
Convention, which will be held at Harris
burg on the ieth inst. According to the Rules
ond Laws adopted in a full democratic conn
ty Convention, held September 6th, 1851,
this Standing Committee is not doing its du
ly. Why is this? Is Democracy getting to
be a secret organization? Why does not
the Chairman of this Committee call a Coun
ty Convention, and allow the Democracy of
the County a voice in this matter of appoint
ing Conferees, as should be done, and not
violate our Rules and Laws? By carrying
out our Rules the will of the people will be
represented in Conference, and Delegates
sent to the Democratic State Convention
representing the wish of their constituents.
There is no use in having Rules and Laws
when they are not regarded.
No Convention has been called in this
County, and the time for appointing Dele
gates to the State Convention has nearly ar
rived, and how are the people of this coun
ty to be fairly represented in Conference and
in the State Convention at Harrisburg?
How can Conferees from this county claim
seats in Conference when they have not
been appointed or elected in County Con
vention according to our Code of Laws and
Rules which are established for that pur
pose ? These Rules strictly set out that " all
appointments of Conferees, and election of j
Delegates, shall be made in County Con-!
vention." The Democracy of the county ask
why we have not had a Convention? they
do not suppose that the Standing Commit
tee, Chairman and all, are the whole county;
neither do they intend to be governed by its
action so long as it has abandoned its duty.
Lancaster County.
The Democratic Convention of Lancaster
county, for the election of Delegates to the
Slate Convention at Harrisburg, on the 16th
March, met in Lancaster on Wednesday.—
Col. JOEL L. LIGHTS FR in the chair.
After a recess of two hours the Conven
tion met, and Col. S. C. STAMBAUGH, chair
man of the Committee on Resolutions, read ;
a lengthy series, endorsing the National I
and State Administrations, favoring Mr.
BUCHANAN'S Tariff policy, the acquisition of
Cuba, recommending the location of the
National Foundry in or near Lancaster, and
complimentary of the election of Mayor
SANDERSON. The resolutions were adopt
ed.
The Convention then proceeded to ballot
for delegates, whioli resulted in the election
of the following gentlemen : —WILLIAM T.
MCPHAIL, Col. S. C. STAMBAUGH, FREDERICK
S. PYFER. I'AUL HAMILTON, P. J. ALBRIGHT,
JEROME B. SHULTZ. The Convention was
well attended; all the Districts, with the
exception of three or four, being represent
ed.
INAUGURATION OF JUDGE MCCANDLESS. —The
inauguration of this gentleman as Judge of
the United Stales District Court, for the
Western District of Pennsylvania, took place
at Pittsburg on Tuesday last. The commis
sion of the new Judge, dated February Bth,
1859, was read by United State District At
torney ROBERTS, and the fact announced
thai his Honor Judge M CCANDLESS had taken
his oath of office before the Supreme Judges
of the United States, at Washington. On
taking his seat upon the Bench, THOMAS
WILLIAMS, Esq., a prominent member of
the Pittsburg Bar, addressed Judge MCCAN-J
DLESS, and congratulated the Bar, the public
at large, and his Honor, on this occasion,
and the causb which produced it.
THE County Convention which assembled I
at Middleburg, Snyder County, on the 22d I
wit., failed to elect any Senatorial delegates,
therefore the Chairman of the Standing
Committee lias appointed Col. If. C. Eyer
and Thomas Bower, Esq., as delegates from
Snyder County, to meet similar Delegates
from Columbia, Montour and Northumber
land counties, for the purpose of electing a
Senatorial Delegate to the Democratic State
Convention which will meet on the 16th of
March next. These delegates will meet
those from the other three counties of the
Senatorial district at 11 o'clock, A. M., on
Saturday, the slh day of March, at Brown's
Hotel iu the town of Northumberland.
AMERICAN AGRICULTURIST. —This valuable
and popular journal for March has been re
ceived. It is filled With useful hints for the
farmer and mechanic. It contains a large
quantity of reading matter; printed upon
good white paper; with many handsome
illustrations. It is a cheap journal, only
one dollar a year in advance; so cheap
that every farmer ought to have it. A sin
gle copy would be of more value to some
men than its subscription. ORANGE JUDD,
publisher, 189 Water st., New York.
HOWARD ASSOCIATION, PHILADELPHIA. —We
command to the attention of our readers,
with much confidence, the announcement
of this well known benevolent Institution
in our advertising columns. The managers
are very prompt in their business transac
tions, and we have no doubt that persons
applying to the Inslitutiou for medical aid,
will receive judicious and skillful treatment.
%3T We frequently hear complaints from
our subscribers about not receiving their
papers regularly, and sometimes they don't
receive them at all. Now, how is this? It
certainly is not our fault. We mail our
papers regularly, every Wednesday. Post
masters be careful, and do your duty, and
.there'll be no complaint.

t. Subscrbers who do not give express
noticftlo the contrary, are considred as wish
ing to continue their subscription.
2. If subscribers order the discontinu
ance of their nespapers, the publisher may
continue to send them until all arrearages
are paid
3. If subscribers neglect or refuse to take
their papers from the offico to which they
[ are directed, they are held responsible until
they have settled their bills and ordred
them discontinued.
4. If subscribers movo to other places
without, informing tho publisher, and the
newspapers are sent to the former direc
tions, they are responsible.
5. The courts have decided that refusing
to take newspapers from the office, or re
moving and leaving them uncalled for, is
PRIMA FACIE evidence of intentional fraud.
6. The United States Courts have also
repeatedly decided, that a neglect of the
Postmaster to perform his duty of giving
reasonable notice, as required by the Post
Office Department, ol tho neglect of any
person to take from the office newspapers
addressed to liim, renders the Postmaster
liable to the publisher for the subscription
price.
TUB LAAT Court in Northumberland coun
ty incorporated Turbutville into a borough,
and the first election came off on the 15lh
ultimo, which resulted in the election of the
following gentlemen:
Chief Burgess—S. A. Savidge. F.sq.; Town
Council—A. T. Beiscl, Jacob Giltner, J. D.
Barr, A. Denius, George Cbristman, Jacob
Slab!; Town Clerk—Dr. Win. B.Schuyler;
Overseer of the Poor—M. Reader; High
Constable—James Polk
The pleasant little village of Turbutville i
is incorporated into a Borough at last, and
has elected its borough officers. We dis- j
cover that our friend, Dr. Sehuyler, has re
ceived an office— Clerk if the Town Well,
surely, this is encouraging. These borough
offices are not very profitable after all, but
afford considerable pruetise. Wo also notice
that S. A. Savidge, Esq. has received a post
of more responsibility than profit. It is that
of Chief Burgess My young friends, in or
der to gain fame and occupy more high and
exalted positions, you should, which we
have no doubt you will, attend to the func
tions of your offices with fidelity and integ
rity, and this will be certain to work out suc
cess. ,
BARRF.TT'S GRAMMAR. —This Grammar is
composed of English, Latin, Greek, German,
Spanish, and French, with a Polyglot! ar
rangement of a part of the Gospel of St.
Matthew, and a Commercial Dictionary of
the Modern Languages. Containing five
hundred and seventy-five pages. Price two
dollars and twenty five cents. This is un
questionably a popular work ; and is con
structed throughout upon certain mathemat
ical principles, bearing the same relation to
Kirkhatn, Smith, Coveli, Clark and other
old authors that a treatise on Algebra does
to a common Anthmatic. It compels the
student to think, to reason, to compare, to
analyze, to symbolize, to equate, and to clas
sify and form correct conclusions for himself,
instead of taking the definitions and rules
of anothers. To go into detail and describe
all the improvements would require aa
elaborate article. We were shown the book
on last Monday by a young man, who de
signs canvassing this place. We would say
to the School Directors, Teachers, and Pa
rents of this place, exa mine the work, aud
if you do not find it as we have represented
it to be, why post us as a story-teller.
To OUR READERS. —A failure to notify a
wish to discontinue at the end of the year,
will be considered as a new engagement,
and the paper forwarded accordingly. No
discontinuance is permitted until all arrear
ages are paid. This we intend shall be re
garded wherever we can enforce it. No
subscriber need pride himself with the idea
that he can discontinue and send back his
paper to the publisher any moment he
| chooses, when lie has not pant up all ar
rearages. Any person wishing to slop taking
our paper, by lorking over the "dimes," can
do so ; and under no other circumstances;
but they need not think that they'll take the
paper a year, and four or five weeks longer,
and then have the Post Master perform their
dirty work, (i.e. to send it back to the pub
lisher, marked "REFUSED!" "NOT TAKEN
OUT!"&C.) when they have not paid the
publisher a single cent on their subscrip
tion. Those delinquents invariably fail to
inform the Post Master that they have not
paid for their paper; but we will notify
them, that, as a general thing, those who
act in this fashion, very seldom pay,
unless they are forced and the creditor suc
ceeds in getting their "all at stake !" We
are Borry to' say that, we have a few of this
stripe upon our list; but a very few; we are
getting them ferreted out as fast as possible.
They are very clever chaps till they swindle
five or six dollars out of a poor Printer's
pocket.
WASHINGTON CITY, according to a tele
graphic dispatch in the Pctmsphunian, was
thrown into intense excitement on the
27th ultimo, caused by the killing of Philip
Barton Key, U. S. District Attorney for the
District of Columbia, at the hands ot Hon.
Daniel E. Sickles, member of Congress from
the Thrid District of New York. According
to report Mr. Sickles became convinced
of the trutli of certain scandalous rumors, in
volving bis wife, and resolved to redress his
wrongs, which he did. Mr. Sickles met Mr.
Key near the President's House, and charg
ed him with having dishonored him, and
destroyed his domestic peace, and immedi
ately shot him, one of the balls taking effect
on the leit side of the body and the other took
effect in the right thigh near the main artery
Key in falling implored Sickles not to kill
him. The third ball was shot in tho right
side, glancing from the body and bruising
it. Of which wounds death soon ensued—
The body was lakeH into the National Club
House, and a Coroner's Jury immediately
summoned. Sickles gave himself into the
hands of an officer and was conveyed to jail
for further examination.
Montgomery Connty.
The democratic County Contention of
Montgomery County met on the 24th inst.,
to select delegates to the State Convention
at Harrisburg, which meets on the 16th of
March next. E. VV. DAVID, Em, waselect
ed President.
Gen. JOHN H. HOBART, Dr. J. \V BIGORV,
JESS* B. DAVIS and SAMUKL HOOPT, were
elected delegates, and instructed to support
I KICHABDSON L. WRIGHT for Auditor-General.
The following resolutions were unani
mously adopted:
Resolved, That the Democracy of Mont
gomery county, in convention assembled,
reiterate their firm adherence to the plat
form as laid down in the National Conven
tions of Baltimore and Cincinnati, believ
ing that these principles are best calculated
to promote the interests of the people at
large, and the harmony of the country.
Resolved, That we feel confidence in the
wisdom, integrity and statesmanship of
James Buchanan, the first President elect
from Pennsylvania, and that we believe the
measures recommended by him so far have
been dictated by the sole and earnest and
general prosperity of the whole country.
Resolved, That we heartily approve ofhis
recommendation in regard to the acquisi
tion of Cuba. The possession of that Island
is desirable for the proper defence of our
country, as well as the commerical advan
tages which result from its acquisition.
Resolved, That we hail with joy the admis
sion of Oregon into the sisterhood of States,
as strengthening the bonds of the great con
federacy ; and that the vote upon her admis
sion is another evidence of the inconsisten
cy ot the Kepublican party—professing to
favor the admission of fret Stales and yet
voting almost bodily against it.
Resolved, That in William F. Packer we
have a Governor whose ability aud talents
are calculated to adorn the Executive chair,
and that the measures of Stale policy as
reomrnended in his late annual message
meet our approval.
Resolved, That the course of Hon. Wm.
Bigler in the United Slate Senate, and Hon.
Owen Jones, our representative in Congress,
in sustaining the interests of Pennsylvania,
and advocating a revision ol the Tariff of
1867, passed by the aid of Kepublican
votes, meets our warm approbation, and
that they are entitled to the thanks ol the
people of the whole State.
Resolved, That the course of Messrs. Hill,
Sloneback and Dismant our Representatives
at Harrisburg, thus far meets our entire ap
proval, and we have every confidence they
will use their united efforts to protect and
advance the interests of their constituents.
Resolved, That we are still opposed to the
repeal of the Tonnage Tax, believing it to
be detrimental to the interests of the people
of the Stale ; and that the lute reported re
fusal of the Pennsylvania Railroad Compa
ny to pay the same; is another evidence of
the grasping avarice of that mammoth cor
poration.

| Familiarity, they tell lis, is the motherof
j contempt. Things which we see and hail- 1
' die every day, lose all distinctive value in
1 our eyes. The very air we breathe is an
I unrecognized blessing, though, if deprived
! of it for the twentieth fraction of an hour,
| the world woald cease to live! In like
; manner we have all of us—no matter of
what race or country—been so long accus
tomed to see the name of THOMAS HOLLO
WAY at the head of medical advertisement that
we begin to look upon it as one of the es
sential components of a newspaper, and
hardly pause to enquire into the true signifi
cance o r this universal fame.

millions from all parts of Europe, make up
the motley immigration which our world
embracing commerce throws daily on our
shores. Thousands of such, perhaps, have
never heard any one of the great names
which we have been trained to regard with
reverence; the name of Washington cannot
thrill their sluggish blood; of Napoleon
Bonaparte, his conquests and his fall, they
are utterly ignorant. But hand them a
newspaper and see how rapidly their faces
brighten! They recognize its friendly
promise—they rely on its long-tested truth;
they rejoice and are, perhaps, astonished J
to know that the great physician, whose
visit to their own country formed the epoch
of a physical regeneration, has likewise been

lished in every spot he visited not only de

The Jotlirfal Policy of Sew England.
Hon. John S. Wells, one of the soundest
Democrats of the Granite State, and (with
the exception of Franklin Pierce) the best
stump speaker in New England, addressed
I the gallant Democracy of F.xter (N. H.,)
last week, on the present position of parties
W4 make ar. extract:
"They have in the South a population of
about ten millions, nearly four millions of
whom have ever been
our trierids and patrons, and the best cus
tomers which New England has ever had
Nolover one-sixth of their cotton crop comes
to us, and every intelligent man well knows
that England would gladly secure the mono
poly of that production, even at u great sac
rifice, and thereby silence forever the spin
dles of New England. English influence
has been potent in creating the, alienation
which now exists between New England
and the South, and if they can succeed in
producing an open rupture, their long cher
ished desire of a manufacturing monopoly
will speedily be realized. Can we provoke
the South to withdraw their friendship and
patronage ? Have not the opponents of
the Democratic party done wonders already
in that direction 1 Witness the crippling
of mechanical industry ; see our merchants
establishing agencies in New York, Phila
delphia and Baltimore, for the avowed pur
pose of retaining the Southern trade, which
they arocon*bmt would be lost by retain
ing their sole establishments in New Eng
land. Consider the shoe interest, larger in
amount than our cotton productions, plain
ly and palpably suffering year by year, by
the transfer of its Southern customers to
New York, New Jersey and l'ennsylva%ia.
And still worse and more gloomy is the fu
ture. Outside of agriculture and commerce
the great mass of our people require for
their employment, cotton, iron, leather, and
coal, none of which, save iron and leather,
and these to a very limited extent, have we
here. How is it with those who are so
loudly and incessantly denounced by New
England liepublicans ? They are in reali
ty an agricultural people, their lands are
rich and extensive, and their laboring pop
ulation better fitted for that employment
than for mechanics and manufacturing hence
those branches have been freely and cheer
fully yielded to us. We have the best and
most extensive w<ter power, and for a long
lime it was considered that New England
had almost the exclusive hydraulic force ;
but now with the improvement in machin
ery and the varied application of steam, the
power for propelling machinery is at every
coal bed in the land. Look then over the
Southren States, and realize the immense
and extensive deposits of minerals only to
be wrought to create new and successful
competition to our mechanics and manu
factures.
Virginia, Kentucky, Tennesse, Alabama,
Arkansas, and Missouri, have each vast
deposits of coal and iron, and many of
them abound in copper, lead, zine, salt,
gypsum, granite and marble, and even
down to Georgia and North Carolina exten
sive deposits of coal, iron, limstone and mar
ble abound. Open these now dormant mines,
and centre aioumi them the mechanical
skill and genils which the patronage often
millions of ptople can call together, and
ihen we shall realize in its fullest extent
the suicidal pMicy of northern fanaticism,

ism is busy in that land , their 180 cotton
factories, 98 woolen factories, 269 iron mills,

Vuslnugtoti affairs.
WASHINOTOH, Feb. 25.—The Navy De
partment, this morning, received a despatch
from Lieutenant Braine, commanding the
U. S. ship Viccennes, dated Norfolk, in
which ha states that he had captured the
slaver Julia Dean on the coast of Africa,
and brought bar into that port. Augustus
bregeron, represented HS a passenger on
board the Dean, died on the passage to the
United States, previously requesting that
his effects should be sent to his wife in Ha
vana. It is supposed that he was the cap
tain of the Dean, and that his effects com
prise a great deal of treasure. The Depart
ment, this morning, sent orders to Lieut.
Braine to turn over the men on the Dean to
the United States Marshal for trial. It is
supposed that the Dean is owned in Charles
ton. The Vincennes is ordered to be ex
amined, as it is supposed she was injured
by striking on a reef.
The Pennsylvania and other members
representing different parties, voted with
those favorable to the revival of the tariff
of 1846, on Mr. Hughes ineffectual motion
to suspend the rules to enable him to intro
duce a bill for that poryose. Some, while
opposed to thq thought that it would
afford a basis for a different measure. The
Southern members, embracing the extrem
ists, the Massachusetts members, and gen
tlemen from nearly all the other sections,
opposed the motion.
The special committee appointed to in
vestigate the charges of corruption against
Mr. Searing, have made a report. As it was
immediately sent to the Printer, there was
no opportunity to examine its contents, but
on authority of the statement of a member
of the committee, it appears that while the
committee unanimously concur in opinibn
that the testimony does not exculpate him,
they think it insufficient to warrant his ex
pulsion. The House will be called on to
morrow to decide upon the subject as pro
posed by the committee. It is further said
that Mr. Searing has filed a statement of
his own to rebut the testimony against him.
STEAMER Cqrnrr SUM Lost of Life.— The
Rleamer Comet was sunk in the Mississippi,
below Memphis, on last Saturday night,
during a storm. Several of the passengers
and crew were drowned. We learn from
the Cincinnati Commercial that among the
lost are John S, Pope, first clerk ; Job Hill,
cabin passenger; John Clark, Wm. Cook,
Joseph Howard and Samuel Hardeman,
deck hands. A little girl and two cabin
passengers, names unknown, were also
drowned. The boat and cargo are a total
loss. The Comet belonged to Cook & Co.,
of Memphis. She was insured for 84,600.
For the Star of Ike North.
BLOOMSBDHU, Feb. 24th, 1859.
MR. EDITOR:— AIIow me, through the
columns, of your most valuable journal, to
say a few words in relation to the Keystone
Literary Society of this place, which has
its meetings every Tuesday evening in the
Academy. In the first place, a Literary So
ciety, conducted in a proper manner, is a
very useful and necessary enterprise ; and
through an organization of this kind, infor
mation and knowledge may be obtained,
thatotherwise would lie dormant. Here the
ininil should be at work, for the good of the
Society, to promote and elevate the cause |
in which it has so honorably enlis ed, —in
the pursuit of Science and Literature. No
time should be idled away in matters that
neither interest or instruct the Society.—
What business, of a formal character, there
is before '.he Society, for transaction and
consideration, should be disposed of readily,
and with as little equivocation and discus
sion as possible. Now, is this the principle
r.pon wnich the Keystone Literary Society
of this place is conducted ? I answer in the
negative ! To give your readers an
idea how things are "done up" by the So
ciety in question, I will mention a few pro
ceedings, of a recent meeting, which I was
pained to witness : Fist in order—calling
of the roll and reading minutes of last meet
ing t While this is being performed the
room is in a perfect buzzing condition.) —
Next in order is a "string of business."
which they arrange under the head of Mis
cellaneous Business. (This business appear
ed to me of no importance or benefit; and
I think the Society would profit by having
it "done away with" entirely. Under this
head of business a Committee, of two, is
appointed for the purpose of waiting upon
the audience and soliciting members. When
this is performed the Committee make out
a report and hand it to the Chairman for his
action. He carefully reads it over and finds
the names of several persons upon it, who
wish to be proposed, and become members
of the Society. Finally the Chairman of
fers to the Society the name of a certain
person proposed, with the priviledgeof tak
ing a vote upon it. It carries—the i's have
it. Another is offered—a member rises and
earnestly objects to this one—up springs a
young hasty member who speaks with con
siderable force in defence of this person pro
posed—whereupon a motion is made that,
a Committee of three be appointed by the
Chair to investigate the good and bad quali
ties of this person proposed. A Committee
is appointed, and the matter is "laid over"
for a luture ivestigation . After this being
done, the answering oi questions is the
next exorcise ir. order. (Questions are giv
en out at each meeting to be answered at
the next. Some of them were decidedly of
an instructive character, while others were
of a trifling nature.) When these questions
were gotten along with, then came the read
ing of a Literary Paper, edited by one Miss
from the members, abounding in love, fiction
and light literature. (This is one of the
best ways of improving the mind, but I
would suggest to the young aspirants after
literature, of choosing different subjects—
subjects of a more useful and honorable
character, than those of a wooing ami love
making complexion. lam decidedly in fa
vor ot "composition writing," but Ido love
to hear compositions upon subjects of more
solidity.)
Header, you have now the manner and
form of proceedings, as they are manujat
tured by the Keyßtone Literary Society of this
place. After the above exercises are per
formed the evenings are pretty nigh spent,
and the hour of adjourning has arrived. No
debating is done when the meetings are
closed at this juncture
Mr. Editor, in ternos, this Society should be
styled die Keystone Courting Society, instead
ol the title they now assume ; for, from what
I could understand, by their actions, very lit
tle knowledge and literature are sought af
ter in their meetings. The Society is pretty
equally composed of both sexes, and I do
hope they will turn their attention to the ob
ject of Literary Societies generally.
It may be a curiosity for some of the mem
bers to know the writer of this article. I
will jus( add that, I am not a member of the
Society, but I was present at the last meet
ing, in company with a female friend, and
doubt very much whether 1 shall be seen
there again, for the character of females are,
I opine, too roughly handled, by certain
members of '.his institution. I subscribe
myself, POSSE COM-I-TA-TUS.
Nollowny't Ointment and Pills—A pe'feet
safegmid. —No one who takes the trouble
to examine the p.amphlets used as wrappers
for these preparations can be the victim of
imposture. if genuine, the water-mark,
i: Holloway, New York and London," will
be found on each leaf of the pamphlet. The
test is simple, and should not be neglected.
We loarn that the "molhers of America"
are almost universally adopting these won
derful medicines—the Ointment, as a cure
for sore breasts, scald head, rashes scabi
ous eruptions, cuts, soars, bruises, etc., and
the Pills as a swift and certain remedy for
summer complaint, marasmus, worms, and
all internal complaints incident to children.

last, by the Rev. J. P Safford, D. D, Mr. N.

MAGGIE, daughter of Col. John Yeager, of
this city.
The nuptial oeremony was very interest
ing and impressive, and peculiar to the cel
ebrated divine who officiated on the occa
sion. The exchange of rings was a new
leature at occasions of this kind to us, and
very suggestive. The ring, being pure gold,
was emblematical of unalloyed affection ;
and, being a perfect circle without end,
represented the unending bond of love
which should characterize them in their in
tercourse. After the ceremony Mr. Safford
made a short, but pertinent and affectionate
address to the parties, during which he pre

Peaee or War.
Merer were statements, rumors and opin
ions more perplexiugly at variance, than
those advanced since the first day of the
year 1859, in relation to the Italian imbrog
lio. One portion of the European press
strongly inclines towards the belief in war;
another considers that event inevitable, and
predicts it as one of the certainties of the
next spring or summer, and the third de
nies the positions of both, insisting that
there are no sufficient reasons to npprehdnd
a belligerant development. Yet, in every
one of these divisions, we discover journals
that otherwise command most excellent
sources of information. The majority of
the British press are on the side of the war
theory, and express themselves more decid
edly in that sense than the journals of the
Continent, but it is to be considered that
England is a commercial country am! the
great money lender of the world—that Aus
tria is negotiating for fifty million dollars of
English gold, and Sardinia is about follow
ing suit with a loan or twenty millions, and
that seventy millions is somewhat of an
object of national interest to be loaned on
the best terms possible. The greater the
war cry, the cheaper will the Messrs.
Rothschij-d have to sell the Austrian and
Sardinian bonds. Then it is proper, no
doubt, that under any circumstances, the
lenders should be acquainted with llie whole
magnitude of their risks. Moreover the
war-opinions derive strong food and sup
port from the armaments, movements of
troops and preparations in France, from
the non-committal policy of the Monittur,
the Russian agitations in Turkey, and the
language used by the St. Petersburg press,
which is evidently intended to encourage
the elements of disaffection in Italy, and
which tells Austria very plainly that in the
event of an outbreak she need not again
expect any assistance or countenance from
that quarter. The speech of Queen Victo
ria, 100, touches upon the subject with such
extreme caution, and so evasively, that but
for the interpretation afterwards put upon,
it by her Minister, it would have conveyed
the impression that it was framed ralher to
warn than to appease the public mind.—
Her promising to contribute, as far as her
influence can extend, to the preservation of
the general peace, and to the maintenance
of the faith of treaties, without expressing
the faintest hope of success, indicates the
existence of misgivings in the Cabinet as to
the efficacy of that influence, as well as
their conviction of the imininency of danger.
But then we have, on the other hand, the
declaration in the House of Lords of the
Earl of Derby, the head of the Cabinet, that
Austria had given assurance not to interfere
with the iuterual affairs of Italy, that they
had also an assurance Irom the Emperor of
the French that he would give no assist
ance whatever to Sardinia in an uggressive
war, and that under these circumstances, he
vthe Earl of DerbyJthought there was strong
ground lor believing that the recent appre
hensions of a rupture would prove ground
less; and in the House of Commons, Mr.
Disraicli said that he had every confidence
in the maintenance of peace. It may bo,
however, that these ministerial expressions
are less the offspring of conviction than
part of a policy of repression of war senti
ments in the Tuileries, by binding the Em
peror in the eyes of Europe to his promise
not to assist Sardinian aggressions. And
Napoi.eon, he may have thought in giving
that promise, that he might keep it to the
letter, if not to the spirit, without abandon
ing the grand Napoleonic idea of a "regen
eration of Italy," by simply permitting Sar
dinia to open the ball, ami to make com
mon cause with the revolutionists in Aus
trian Italy forthe expulsion oflhe Austrian*;
awaiting himself a favorable opportunity to
interfere under some other pretext than that
of "assisting Sardinia in an aggressive war."
And in the case the Sardinians, allied with
the people of Lombardy and Venice, should
prove able to achieve the expulsion of
Austria, he may not even contemplate any
active interference, but content himself, for
the time being, with the result, which would
be a great point gained for Franco and her j
traditional policy of absorption. All this is
possible, and the assurances of the British
Ministry must, therefore, be received with
many grains of allowance.— Pennsylvanian.
