STAR OF THE NORTH,
WM. H. JACOBY.TDTTOR. ILMIBBpe, TKDIMY, BED. 18, ICS9- ATTENTION I — We have sent bills, by let ter, to many of our subscribers to the Sr*n or TII a NORTH, who are in arrears for one year or more; and, as yet, have received very few remittances. We earnestly desire that prompt attention should bo giv-m to them, as we are much in need of money to meet our payments Our Collector will renew his visits upon those patrons in arrears, tip Fi-hingcreek and in that vicinity, in the course of a few days. We hope they will be ready to meet Ills demands. CONGRESS —The House on last Saturday made no progress towards an organization ; and it is now evident that the struggle will continue until after the holidays,—the Be publicans hoping to derive advantage from the absence of a number of members who cannot be induced to vote for Mr. Sherman. The number voting on Saturday last was but 206; Sherman receiving 100, and the balance scattering. The last intimations were that the President's Message would be sent into the Senate yesterday, the 27th, provided a quorum should be present In relation to the Clerkship the last accounts report that their is an increasing disposition among the members to re elect Mr. Allen, the present Clerk. The chances for John W. Forney are poor. DASTARDLY OUTRAGE.— On Saturday even ing last, about 6 o'clock, a young mar., Ad am Leiby, ol Harrisburg, was knocked down and robbed of his clothespin the street, by three negroes, or white men disguised in masks. After the villains had stripped the young man of all his clotheß they carried him to a steep embankment and threw him over it, which was some twenty feet high, and nearly perpendicular. For some time he could scarcely move his limbs, so com pletely paralyzed were they with the ex treme cold and the effects of severe bruises. He is doing well under the circumstances. No clue has ye*, been found that would lead to the detection of the perpetrators. THE contract division of the general Post Office Department, is now engaged in prepa rations for the annual lettings of mail con tracts, which will take place in the ensuing spring. The regular section this season comprises routes in Maryland, District of Columbia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Ohio; besides which, the mis cellaneous services in every Slate and Ter ritory of the Union, which was deferred by the failure of the postal appropriation bill, will be disposed of. The time (jxed tor the reception of proposals is until 3 o'clock, P. M., March 31st, anil the entire results are to be declared by the 2llh of April This will be one ol the largest lettings ever held in the Department. JUSTICE TO THE NORTH. — Hon. Mr. Mallory of Florida, in a debate in the United Stales Senate, last week, did justice to the Democ racy of the North in the following declara tion :—"1 believe, sir, that if there be in the world a patriotic band of men, devoted to the best interests of their country, and de termined at every self sacrifice to maintian them, it is the gallant little band of North ern Democrats in these very New England States; and I take this opportunity to mani fest my confidence in their actions." THE HARPER'S FKHRV INVESTIGATION.— The Special Committee of the Senate appointed to inquire into all the facts connected with John Brown's foray have subpamaed Judge Amy, of Kansas ; Mr. Conway, Congress man elect from Kansas ; Augustus Wattles, editor of the Kansas Herald ol Freedom; Captain Montgomery, one of the Kansas free State border ruffian leaders; G. P. Lowrev, at one time Adjutant General of the free State forces of Kansas ; Dr. Howe, of Boston ; Mr. Sanborn, of New Hamp shire, and Gerrit Smith. THE members of Congress will be obliged to go through the holidays without a cent of money, unless the House make a Speaker. The law authorizes the members to draw the three quarters' salary, or about twenty two hundred dollars each, and their mile age, on the first day of the session. But it also provides that their check should be signed by the Speaker. The Sergeant at arms has advanced above 640,000. The whole amount due to the members is a million of dollars. COL. REUBEN KELLER, of Adamsbttrg, not long since, killed two hogs weighing re spectively 601 and Sll lbs. Columbia is still ahead o( Snyder. A hog wag butcher ed in this place, a few days ago, which weighed 620 lbs. Senator Keller will have to feed his porkers a little more corn next time. THE AMERICAN VOLUNTEER, published at Carlisle, Pa., by John B. Bfatton. came to our sanctum last week with a new suit of clothes on, feeling quite proud ; ana well might it, for it looked admirably well. MR HANNUM, former editor of the Allen town Democrat , has purchased the Luzerne Union, and will take charge of it about the Ist of January. THE CITIZENS of Jersey Shore have intro duced gas-light into their town. This is an improvement that every town ot any con siderable size should have. A NEW TRIAL has lately been granted to Jacob Foust who haß been convicted twice of murder in the first degree, at Erie, Pa. THE REV. JOSHUA KELLY has removed frdm Muncy to Williamsport to take the pastoral charge of the Baptist Church of that place. The Deserted Tariff. We invite attention, says the Daily Pcnn sylvanian, of the leaders who are getting up the Ten Dollar Tariff Banquet this week; of the editor of the North American, who is their organ and champion; of General Cam eron, who directs the interna! tactics of the party and of Mr. Henry C. Carey and his school, who "do" the statistics, t" the re markable fact, that in the authoritative call of the Republican National (!) Convention, at Chicago, just issue d by the Committee, while all odter sorts of principles nra pro fessed, not one word is said nbout a Tariff, or protection, or domestic industry, or spe cific duties, or modification of the revenue laws, or anything kindred to theip. In or der that there may be no mistake we re publish the call as issued and printed in the North American, merely dividied it into paragraphs without the suppression of a word : THE CALL FOR A REPUBLICAN NATIONAL ! CONVENTION. —A National Republican Con- I vention will meet at Chicago, on Wednes day, the thirteenih day of June next, at 12 j o'clock, noon, lor the nomination of candi ; dates to be supported for President arid Vice | President ot the United Slates at the next I election. i The Republican electors ol the several i Stales, the members ol the People's Party I of Pennsylvania, and the Opposition party } of New Jersey, and all others who are wil i ling to co-operate with them in support of ! the candidates which shall there be qomi -1 natnd. and are opposed to the policy of the I present Administration, to Federal corrup | tiou and usurpation, to the extension of i slavery into the Territories—to the new and I dangerous political doctrine that the Con - | .-dilution, ol its own force, carries sla very ' into all the Territories of the United Stales j —to the re opening of the Alrican slave | trade—to any inequality ol rights among j citizens, and who are in favor ot the imme ; diate admission of Kansas under the Consti ' t ution recently adopted by its people-of re j storing the Federal Administration to a sys ] tem of rigid economy, and to the principles j of Washington and Jefferson—of maimaiti i ing inviolate the rights of the States, and of i defending the soil of every Stale and Terri tory front lawless invasion—and of preserv ! ing ilie integrity of the Union and the sup i remacy oi the Constitution and laws passed 1 in pursuance thereof, against the conspiracy ] of the leaders of a sectional pariy to resist j the majority principle, as established by this j government, even at the expense of its ex istence, are invited to send iroiu each State , two delegates from every Congressional | district, and four delegates ai large to the I Covention. | The reason for this omission of a cardi j nal principle, we must leave to others to explain. It may be that, resolute to have no other issue but that of slavery—no other ; conflict but the irrepressible one, and since ' that the People's Parly of Pennsylvania, (whom THADDEUS STEVENS long ago descri bed as a "whippable article,") will agree | to any term 6, the Republican leaders con tempiuously throw the Tariff aside. It ■ may be that the great importing interest of I New York, where the Committee met, (Governor Morgan presiding.) set its face j against any allusion to protection. It may j be that the agriculturalists of the Northwest ; who especially desire railroad iron free of : duty, and the woolen men of New Eug i land, who have always been hostile to our ' local interests, demand the sacrifice. The \ reason, we repeat, we can only guess at. | The fact stands prominently forward. If ; Republicanism is to direct the campaign, ; then the Tariff is to go by the board. If Mr. Sherman's parly, with whom our Tar iff representatives, Messrs. MORRIS and MILI.WAKD, are daily voting, is to rule die day, then Protection, direct or incidental, fades from the banners. If the New York policy is to prevail, with its darling "ad va ' lor cat t" and its "Reciprocities," then Mr. ' CAREY had better throw down his pen, so I long and so ably employed in registering terrific statistics, and demonstrating the ab ! surdity of free trade, and go back to (lie [ genial atmosphere of Upsai and Goltingen I to study his theories in dismal Tuetonic j and Sclavonic words, and find a higher and ; jusler appreciation among Hyperborien pro- I fessors than he does among Republican j politicians. If the Chicago platform of 'No j Tariff and Free Railroad Iron" be adopted, ■ then our esteemed friends of the Phronix | Company (who we believe to be active in ! the proposed protection festival) had bet- I ter look elsewhere for comfort, and, hand j in hand with the creditors of Montour, and I the capitalists of Crane and Cornwall, seek some other safer association. All this, we repeat, we commend to the attention of the gentlemen who are preparing the Tariff I banquet, wbo, having by this time, we i hope, caught a guest or two, must be think | ing of their programme of professions aud ' principles. | Indeed, the fact of the "People's Party j men" being ill treated by the Republicans, j will give point to the festivity. It is in I deed its excuse. But for this provocation, i a Christmas carol—a huge frolic over the 1 fresh graves of Brown and his fellow mar tyrs, might have seemed a little inappropri - ate. Revolt, and murder, and arsou, and hanging, and funerals are, one would think, ; rather serious matters. Our fellow citizens j of Virginia, the mourning tamiiies of Mr. [ BURKHAM andaiid Mr. TURNER, whom Brown and his gang shot down from their ambush, the humble widow and children of the poor soldier who fell in the assault—tlie farmers wltoae ricks and barns lias been burned for months past —the vast body of thinking mc wbo are alarmed or at least depressed at Me ominous appearuqee of public affairs, all these may wonder at the selection of this time for a great symposium—but when they nre told that under the provocation we have referred to, it is but the expression ol just sentiment, that it is meant really as a defiance to technical Republicanism, as an expression of a determination no longer to be hectored by ultra leaders, they will csase to be surprised, and find no fault with the frolic. We really, under the circum stances, shall look with quiet interest tcr this convivial demonstration, the more so, as it to be rather a gathering of the leaders than of the rank and file, who "in the present depressed state of the ■ Tariff interest," can hardly bo supposed to be able to pay ten dollars for a ticket. Recurring, however, to this Republican call, we find it signed on the part of Penn sylvania, by Mr. THOMAS WILLIJMS, the representative.of the great manufacturing city of Pittsburgh, and one may well won der that he had not a word to say for the poor deserted Tariff, and the interests of the great community in which he lives.— That his mind is somewhat preoccupied with the question of repudiating the bonds ot his county we are quite aware, but still there Bhould, one would think, have been some room for a thought about the other greater interest. But the truth is, and this is the serious moral to be deduced from all this, that Abolition and Anti-Slas very agitation is engrossing. It crush es out all other considerations. The Republican leaders are determined to make but one great issue, and have flung down the gauntlet of defiance to doubting friends as well as to open foes, and the sooner the advocates of a moderate and reasonable Tariff understaud this, the belter for them. Daring Robbery and Attempt Co Commit Arson, Night belore last, a girl named Mary Toy effened an entrance into the residence of Mr Lebnard Kramer, in Second street be low Chestnut, and gathered together quite a large bundle of various articles, with the view to their felonious abstraction. In one of the rooms she exchanged her wardrobe, winch was somewhat dilapidated, for that belonging to one of Mr. Kramer's daughters, alter which she went to the cellar, and leis urely regaled hetself upon a quantity of pies, bread and butter, &c. As the night was uncomfortably cold she returned to the kitchen and made a fire in the stove, and then took a re-survey of the several room 6 of the house in search of valuables. Arri ving in one of the rooms, she discovered a bed, and our lady feeling somewhat oppres sed by the drowsy god, Morpheus, very coolly reclined her wearied limbs upon the inviting sheets and enjoyed a refreshing nap. By the time she awoke daylight was beginning to make its appearance, and having none of the sluggard in her disposi tion she sprang to the floor with commend able alacrity, and smoothed down the bed as if to remove all traces of its having been occupied. Her next achievement seems to have been the most criminal of all, though fortunately the least successful. It was nothing more than a deliberate attempt to set fire to the house I At length she began to hear the steps of people moving about the lower rooms, and quickly making up a bundle of the stolen articles, she sought to make her exit from the house. In crossing the balcony, however, with this view, she was detected and recognized by a daughter of Mr. Kramer, who instantly raised the alarm, and the girl was arrested by Mr. Kramer. All the stolen articles were re covered, and believing the girl to be insane, Mr. Kramer permitted her to depart, with a serious injunction, however, not to trouble the neighborhood again with her presence. The girl departed in a sullen mood, evi dently not satisfied with the interruption.— Subsequently it was ascertained that previ ous to visiting Mr. Kramer's house, the girl had stolen a number of articles from the adjoining houses. She is evidently a dan gerous person, and should be looked after Patriot and Union, Harriiburg. LOCAI. NEWSPAPERS. —We cheerfully en dorse the remarks of a cotemporary, that local newspapers should be a complete re flex of the business and prosperity of their place of publication, and every one ought to be impressed with the importance ol this fact who has charge of such journals, it should be the imperative duty of all busi ness men to patronize, sustain and encour age their local journals, not only for their own individual interest, but for the welfare of the community in which they are pub lished. Local news of local papers is so re garded by intelligent business men in every place. It is through this source that one is qualified to judge of the business an activi ty of towns and villages; therefore the ne cessity of liberally patronizing local papers, not only by the way of advertising, but in furnishing tbe material to make them en tertainiug and profitable to all. It cannot be expected that an editor is cognizant of all that is transpiring throughout the town and country, and for this reason ev ery man should teal it a privilege to assist in making public, through the local papers, events of daily occurrence in the communi ty in which he resides. By this course edi tors can furnish through their respective papers a complete record of all that trans pires of interest in town and country. WET FEET. —One of the most prolific sources ol disease in this country is wet feet. When pavements are covered with slush or water—soaked snow—it requires such leather as we seldom find in boots to keep the water from penet ating. If it does not actually reach the feet, it at least im parts a chilling dampness to them, which ascends the body as readily as smoke does a stack. People whose system is not in perfect order, are most liable to attacks of sickness from damp feet In this matter we are all equally interested, and thick shoes may greatly prolong life. Mr. YVM. D. Bun. KII has been appointed as Superintendent of Public Schools of Montour County, in place of Mr. A. B. PUT NAM, resigned. Mr. Butler is at present en gaged as teacher in the High Schools of this borough.— Danville Democrat. DISTRICT ATTORNEY or NEW YORK— The President has appointed James J. Roosvelt to the District Attorneyship of New York, vacant by the death of Mr Sedgwick. The appointment was sent to the Senate on Fri day and immediately confirmed. MR. DANIEL E. CONKLIN, of Suffolk, Long Island, killed a wild duck last Tuesday, and took from its gizzard three pieces of gold in its pure state, resembling the lumps which are found in the river diggings of Cal ifornia. A rich duck. AN editor says that the only reason why his house was not blown away during the late gale, was because there was a heavy mortgage upon it. THE property of the Montour Iron Com pany, at Danville, is again in the bands of the Sheriff. STARTLING, BUT TRUE! , HAKE WAT FOR THE NEW PHILOSOPHY. It is the weakness of small minds to reject new systems, simply because they aro start ling. They forget that apples had been drop ping to the earth for 6,000 consecutive years under the noses of philosophers as well as fools, before Newton deduced the theory of gravitation from the fall of a pippin. Is there anything Irrational, then, in suppos ing that Thomas Holloway, a man of deep research and strong practical intellect, may have discovered and applied successfully the natural antidotes to a large proportion ol human diseases 1 Let it be remembered that for many years this indefatigable stu dent, shrouded in the fumes ol his labora tory, was engaged in pharmaceutical expe riments, all directed to the great object which he claims to have attained. Nature is a strict custodian of her mysteries, and only discloses them when enforced by in domitable energy and peiseverance. While the disciples of old and effete medical the ories were following the beaten track of routine, he struck out a new path, and founded a new system of treatment. What has been the issue? Ask the world, for nearly half its inhabitants have endorsed his remedies. Besides the name that au thenticates his Pills and Ointment, it may be said that the broad seal of public appro val is affixed to Itlpm, and that the certifi cate of their infallibility bears upon its face every written.language in existence. Sim ple facts are the only admissible testimony in a matter which involves health and life— and the facts that go to establish the cura tive properties of these preparations are overwhelming. Of the sufferers from dys pepsia, liver complaint, debility, scrofula, and almost every species ol febrile, cutan eous and glandular disorder—"a multitude that no man can number" have cordi ally approved them. Surely, those who have recovered under the operation of the medicines, are the most * competeut judges of their virtues, and we acquiesce without hesitaliou in their decision. — Leeds "Mer cury." Agricultural Convention and Leetnres at Talci College. It is proposed to have whet may be ter med a great agricultural "protracted meet ing" at Yale College during the present Winter, to last throughout the whole month ot February. The exercises are to consist of lectures by leading reliable men, eminent in the different departments of agriculture, horticulture, stock raising, ete. About 80 lectures are provided for,—two to four each day,—*ch lecture to be followed by con versational exercises, questions, lectures, and discussions. Twenty or thirty gentle men, well known in agriculture, besides the Professors in Yale College, are engaged to take part in the exercises as lectures and teachers, while numerous other eminent agriculturists and horticulturists have ex pressed their intention to be present and participate in the discussions. Among the lectures are Lewis 7. Allen, Cassius M. Clay sad Francis Roteh, on Cat tle; Sanford Howard and Dr. Gulliver, on Horses; C. I. Flint and others, on ths Dai ry; the Hon. Marshall P.
