Dow Jr. on California.
r Mr Hears rs: I know very well what will
proenre you bliss by tbe hogshead; it is that
wretched, filthy stuff called money. That it
is that keeps your souls in a flutter, and sets
you jumping like a lot of chained monkeys at
tbe sight of a string of fish. . You think if you
only possessed a certain heap of lucre, you
would be off in lavender make mouths at
care S8y how are yon to sorrow laugh at
time and feel as happy as an oyster ia June.
0. yes, if you only had enough of the trash, 1
would admit you might feel satisfied ; and of
course contented ; but in such cases more re
quires more, (according to Daboll and rum,)
the last more requires most, most wants more
yet; "and so on to the end of ' everlasting.
There is no such thing as tbe end ot worldly
wishes for worldlv riches. As well micht the
sow be supposed to get enough of wollowing
in the mire, as tor a mortal to be satisfied witn
the rolling in the carrion of wealth. - oo false
are your ideas of the means to obtain happi
ness that vou would, u you could, coax angels
from the skies to rob tnem ot the jewels in
their diadems. I hav n't the least doubt of it.
My dear friends I will tell yon how to en
joy as much bliss as heaven can afford to hu
man. . Be contented with what yon have, no
matter how poor it is, until you have an op
portunity to get something better. Be thank
ful for every crumb that falls from the table
of Providence, and live in constant expectation
o( having the luck to pitch upon a whole loaf.
Have patience to put up with present troubles
and console yourselves with the idea that your
situations are paradises compared with others.
When you have enough .to eat to satisty hun
ger enough to drink to quench thirst en
ough to wear to keep yon decent and comfort
able, just enough of what is vulgarly called
'tin' to procure you a tew luxuries, when you
owe no one, and no one owes you, not even a
srudtre then if you are not bappy all the
gold in the universe can never make you so.
A man much wiser than l, once said, 'give me
neither poverty nor riches,' and I look upon
him as one of the greatest philosophers the
world ever produced.
- All he wanted was a contented mind ; suffi
cient bread and cheese and a clean shirt Tuke
pattern after him, O, ye discontented mortals
who vainly imagine that bliss alone is to be
found m the palaces of wealth and opulence.
My hearers if you consider all creation too
poor fo afford you a single pennysworth of
true blessedness, you must pray to be reconci
led to its poverty. Grease your prayers with
faith, and send them up in earnest, hot from
the soul's oven. This manufacturing cold pe
titions with the lips, while the heart continually
cries gammon, is of no more use than talking
Choctaw to Chinese.
Heaven understands no gibberish; it knows
only the pure simple language of the spirit
the soul's vernacular. So, when you pray do it
in as simple a manner as possible, but with red
hot earnesltfess, and your souls will find rest
wherever you are whether nibbling .at a
crust in Poverty Hollow, or half starving in
California, while- endeavoring to transmogrify
a bag of gold dust into am- Indian meal pud
ding. . ... .. - ;: ' : -r,
Rev. Hkkrt Ward Beecher, who returned
from Europe ia tbe steamer Asia publishes
an article over his acknowledged signature, in
the "Independent," of Thursday,which contains
charges against the proprietor ot the' Cucard
line of steamers, which seriously impeaches
his civility and good manners, if.nuthiog more.
Mr. R says that there were nioe clergymen,
on board the boat, and thai Mr. Cunardkwho
came ont in the steamer to Halifax, refused X$.
allow any one to preach except those-of the
Episcopal church and of the established cBiircb
of Scotland. We copy the following para
graph from the letter:
. On tbe second Sabbath Mr. Cunard invited
a clergyman of the established Presbyterian
church of Scotland to preach, after the service
had been read,. .Every one was rejoiced that
this worthy gentlemen had been permitted to
preach; but.it was asked upon what consider
ations the rule had been broken, and why a
Scotch Presbyterian had been permitted to
preach, but American Methodist clergymen,
or Presbyterian, or Congregational had been
forbidden! Mr. Cunard quite lost his tem
per under such questionings. The gentleman
from. Boston said to him in the most friendly
manner that such" an arrangement was calcula
ted to produce ill feeling towards the Cunard
line among the Americans, who were quite
unused to such restrictions upon tbe right of
religious worship. Mr. Cunard replied very
tartly that he knew very well that Americans
would patronize their own steamers (alluding
to collin 8 line as soon as they had as much
confidence in their safely as they had in bis;
that it made him angry to hare such intima
tions held out for threats; and he added in so
many word;, that if Americans did not choose
to go on his ships, 'let them stay away !' He
afterwards repeated the same remark to tbe
writer, in the Dresnce of several others, and
added that if he did not choose to go in that
line, 'we might go to h 11!!' He said that
he wished the American people distinctly to
understand this. In that wish we so fully
sympathized, that we thought it a duty to call
tbe attention of the public to the matter.
Hints to Farmers.
The farmers life is shunned by many be
cause it seems One of mindless drudgery. . It
ought not to be so. If our farmers would study
and reflect more, they might do much less la
bor and yet accomplish more in the course of
year.-, 'ten hours work in summer and eight
in the winter, ought, with good management,
to give any man a living. He who works so
hard that he cannot read or reflect after the la
bors of the day are over, because of r fatigue,
does not plan wisely. Let no man sbiio work
when work should be done ; but to del v, delve
forever is not the end of man's life. Tli. far
mer's evenings should be devoted to . mental
acquisition and rational enjoyments. To sup
and tumble into, bed is ji bog's fashion, and
highly injuriojisTo health; j But let the farmer
have about him the choicest works of his own
auxiliary avocations;, let these form the' sub
ject of convereatiorjjjt Jeastwo evenings in a
wees-nilenhe newspaper, tnafnevcr tailing
source of instruction,-should pot be forgotten.
Two or three dollars contributed by each fam
ily in a neighborhood or school district, would
go a great way in the purchase of standard
books at modern prices. , These are butbiuis,
which each reader will modify as bis judgment
sball suggest ' I plead nly for-the essential
thing of- 'making- home pleasant, -audits hours

Loeofoco Platform for 1850.
The following resolutions wars adopted at the
Democratic Convention, which assembled in Co
lombns on the 4th of July, 1850. Let the People
of Ohio read and remember them: ,
Remked, That with reference to the currency
qnestion, the Democracy of Ohio plants itself npon
the Constitution or ths United states. The cur
rency fixed by that instrument we desire to restore
and establish, and we will nse ail legal and honor
able means to accomplish this object; and being
sincerely opposed to the existence of Banks for the
circulation of paper money, we are utterly opposed
to any feature beinff incorporated into the new Con
stitution, by which the legislature of Ohio would
nave tne power lo create any Dana lor tne circula
tion of paper money. :
Jttr.tolrrd, I hat we consider it the duty or all onr
public officers, after taking the oath to support the
Constitution of the United states, to make all pay
ments, in their official capacitr, in constitutional
currencr, instead of paper monev: and that we es
pecially demand from the Board of f ubhc Works,
that they convert all paper money which may come
under their control into specie, and id that shape dis
Ranked That banks of circulation are hostile
alike to-the equal rights of the people, and the prin
ciples of sound political economy; that hard money
ia the only currency recognized bv the commotion.
the only currency that defraud- no man, the only
currency that is expedient and jnst; and we hold it
to be inconsistent with the principles of the party
tor Democrftta to participate in creating or uphold
iog banking institutions.
Hard Monty Report of Vie Currency Committee in the
. UorutuuUonal Cbruvnnon, July am.
"Sec. 1. The General Assembly shall have no
power to create any bank or banking institution
whatever,, or to authorize the making, emission or
puttiog in circulation of any bill of credit, bond.
check, ticket, certificate, promissory note, or other
paper medium, intended to circulate as money or
one. 2. The General Assembly shall prohibit
by law any persoa or persons, association, compa
ny or corporation now iu existence from exercising
the privilege of banking, or ci-eating, or emitting or
putting in circulation any bank notes, or paper of
any description whatever, to circulate as money or
dec d. 1 he business or banking and dealing in
mont-y sHbII be free to all, subject to auoh restric
tions as may be provided by law; but no special
privileges or exemptions shall ever he granted to
those engaged in such business; nor shall any per-
aon or persons, either natural or artificial, ever be
allowed to deal in or issue paper monev, bo called.
JOHN LARW1LL, Chairman."
' Titer mar introduce a clanse in the new Con
stitotion forever prohibiting the establishment of
any bunks of issue in Ohio. Will they do it?
" We sa) tn the Journal, wo be to them if thet
W NUT do rr! The people of Uhio have de
itnanded, in a. voice that a fool cannot misunder
stand, that the new Constitntion shall forever pro
hibit Banks and wo be to him who ahall trifie with
thia demand." -.- Aabland Uuion.
Here it is, fellow-citizens! Read it! Ponder it.'
Make np your minds, Democrats, how many. of you
are willing to stand on that platform.
Soma of your leaden who fear the results of such
maniacal and absurd measures, will tell yon that
this is not their platform, that it ia only a Whig lie,
got up for electioneering purposes, hoping by k to
deceive men from the ranks of Democracy. It is
still as if ever has been, the policy of the Loeofoco
party, to keep the mass, the honest and the unsus
pecting of their adherents in the dark, concealing
from them the consequences which will inevitably
result from snch a mad course.
Their true position ia beginning to be understood!
The drapery which they put on can no longer con
ceal the carcass that is enrobed! It is plainly visi
ble and stands conspicuous in its naked deformity.
Their appeals to the "dear people,' will no longer
avail in placing them where they can rob and plun
der the county, state, or national treasury. They
are aware of this fact;' "They1 are -becoming aensi
ble of lhejr .own- misery. They seethe PEoriJE will
no longer .snbmit.to -such misrule, and thus they
have made a bold and despeite. effort, determiped
that if they cannot rule, they will destroy; they will
subvert our free Institutions, and bring upon our
common, country anarchy and confusion.
Read again, their platform! and if you can stand
npon and support it you will have no just reason to
complain of their misrule.
Tbe Time is Near at Hand.
The election is approaching, and it behooves
th6 Whigs to be active and on the alert
Thcrs is no time to be lost by inactivity, but
every whig should be up and to the work and
at the polls and deposit his ballot for the whig
ticket. The whig who abstains from the polls
and thus through neglect, helps to elect the
loeofoco candidates, and fasten upon the peo
ple of our Stale their hard money doctrines
and with them hard limes, can have no re
proaches, but to himself, that he contributed
indirectly the result Whigs, through your
supineness will you submit to have our pres
ent safe and sound currency destroyed, our
excellent revenue law blotted from the statute,
and the destructive policy of the locofocos en
grafted upon you ? If you would avert such
a result, you must be active and vigilant at
the polls on -the day of election.
Our opponents although apparently inactive,
yet are active. They will relax no exertion to
elect, thcircandidate for Governor, and can
didates for the Legislature in this district, and
their county ticket. They do not slay away
from the polls on the day of election! ,
;To the work wbigs, and tire not until you
have every whig voter out to the 'election !
Remember that "A full whig vote is a whis
vtcTORV ! !" TMaumee Times.
WHIGS, THE TIME IS SHORT!!
On Tuesday next you will be called on to
exercise the highest privilege of freeman to
select from among you those who shall do yonr
public business, shall be your servants,
THE DAY IS NEAR AT HAND,
When you'are by your ballot to determine up
on the course of policy to be pursued in Ohio
for years to come from the decision of that
day there is no appeal. . . -
BEAR IN MIND, .
That if the verdict rendered on that day be
against your interst, and to thv injury and ruin
of yourselves, your families, and the State, yet
there can be no reversal, your complaints and
mutterings will then be useless, you must sub
mit to the damage and "grin and bear it"
THEN CONSIDER NOW IN TIME,
Of the position and tendency of parties and
measures about to be passed upon, and be op
and "work while yet it is day.
REMEMBER FIRST, .
That the Loeofoco party involved the State in
debt, and by their reckless management, their
peculation and prodigality had bankrupted tbe
good fame and fair reputation of Ohio, making
even her boasted name a "hissing and re
proach." And that under their rule the treas
ury was impoverished, and the people reduced
almost to beggary.
THEN ASK TOURSELVES THE QUES-
Who brought about the change in affairs, re
duced the State debt, paid the interest prompt
ly, elevated the credit of the State, and ren
dered you comparatively prosperous and
. THE ANSW ER IS WRITTEN,
On the page of history. The records and
journals of our State Legislature show that
the whig party did this good work. They re
trenched and reformed the expences of the
government they administered affairs judic-
ously and prudently. . They, by wise and
proper legislation, alleviated your misfortune
and relieved you from the great and heavy
burden imposed by Locofocoism.
TO THE WHIGS, OHIO IS INDEBTED
For her present good name and standing.
By them the excellent banking, and revenne
systems were established, large payments
were made upon the State debt, and the cred
it of the State stock was raised abroad from
CO cts. on the dollar so as to command a hand
That the Loeofoco party ia Ohio are pledged
to derange the present system, to destroy the
Revenue and Bank law, to make an entire
change in the administration of the govern
BY THEIR COURSE OF POLICY,
The poor of the State must suffer, the value
of property be reduced two . thirds, and the
working and producing classes of community
be placed in the bands of Shy locks and shav
ers, subject to the mercy of those "pound of
flesh" cannibals, who know neither pity nor
That the election of Reuben Wood, as Gov
ernor of Ohio will be claimed as an expres
sion in favor of the destructives and their dis
organizing schemes, and will be heralded forth
t hard money victory.
THEN WHILE THE DAY LASTS,
Work for Wm. Johnston, sound banking, just
and equal taxation, and the honor and credit
of the State. Work now, henceforth, unceas
ingly, until the close of the 2d Tuesday of
October, for then "the night cometh when no
man can work." Whigs of Ohio heed this
call neglect not this notice.
' Mt Vernon Whig.
whigs: are: iron ready?
Wbigs of Sandusky 1 the election is close at
hand ! Are you prepared to do your duty ?
Are you sensible of tbe responsibility that
rests upon you ? The issue of an exclusive
metalic currency is to be decided. An Uni
ted States senator is to be elected by the next
general assembly, in the place of Thomas E w
ing. How important is it, that Ohio should
be well represented in the U. States senate by
a true Whig! We hope that every Whig is
fully impressed with the importance of there-
suit; and that no oae, through indifference,will
stay at home. The decision of the currency
question is one of the utmost importance to
every man who is interested in the prosperity
of our country. Let every one therefore not
only vote himself, but see before hand that
his Whig neighbor is prepared to do so too.
Are you willing, Whigs, to have a clause in
serted in the new constitution prohibiting the
reception and payment of bank paper ? Are
you willing to see property and wages of all
kinds reduced in value one-half? Are you
prepared to pay your taxes in gold and sil
ver ? Are you willing to have the expenses of
tbe general government raised by direct taxa
tion? Will you consent to have the honest
debtor, the industrious portion of the commu
nity ruined by tbe hard money humbug? If
not, be up and doing ! devote one day to the
cause of your country, one vote recollect, may
decide the contest. The most cheering ac
counts come up to us from all parts of the
state. If we but do our duty, success is ours.
We have the votes, if they are but brought to
the polls. By one Whig failing to do his duty
victory may perch upon the hard money ban
ner the mum candidate for the governorship
be elected, and the result proclaimed to the
world as a hard money triumph. Let every
Whig, then, be at the polls at an early hour,
and deposite his ballot, and then see that ev
ery other Whig of his township docs the same,
anrj all will be weJ,
- Arouse! Whigs, Arouse!! -
Action 1 union 1 organization I alone are nec
essary to ensure the success of Whig principles
at the approaching election, and we hope our
friends throughout the state will be stimulated
thereto, by the importance of the crisisy. Un
doubtedly our party is largely in the ascend
ency in Ohio, if the votes of all those entertai
ning our principles are made available at the
ballot-box. In order to- do this, all honorable
and fair means should be used and used
promptly. Let no one infer that because our
enemies have placed their standard in the
bands of a leader, who has sufficient discre
tion to keep his. mouth closed , amid the 'noise
and confusion' of . the contest that the rank
and file are supinely inactive. . They are not
so. all the old tactics of a party which has so
often compensated for lack of numbers by su
perior management and drilhare now in requi
sition. The defections in their Tanks are be
ing rapidly healed and we may safely expect
that their whole force, rebels and all, will
march up to the ballot-box at the sound of the
party bugle. The part of wisdom on our be
half is not to pay so much regard to the foe
as to the concentration of our own strength.
Our forces should be thoroughly marshaled,
that success may be sure, and then, with the
quiet confidence of men resolved to do a pat
riotic duty, we may march down upon our en
emy, with a force that shall overwhelm them
in sudden and thorough defeat We have
only to use the means at our command to do
this effectually. - .
Our action should be immediate and ener
getic. The importance of the occasion and
the bright prospect of success should nerve
every man to do his duty, with the utmost
alacrity. 1 ; .. ;
Union' should be our tnotto. ; Let no man
stand to bicker and quarrel with his neighbor
about a punctillio or an abstraction ; but stick
ing hands and closing arms with him, bring
bim along to the Whig camp to do the duty
of a patriot. While you stand by the way
side arguing -an unimportant question
the enemy may be down Upon' you' and des
troy you. :
Organization is the potent lever, by which
the strength of the masses is made effective.
No matter what our numbers may be, if we
lack organization, defeat is sure as fate. Our
whole force must be brought to bear. All re
cruiting and organization must be done before
the time of battle arrives. That lasts but a
single day. There is no time to beat up re
cruits, and a little to muster in new volunteers.
There is nq retreating to better our condition
and mend . our tactics. We must gain the
victory or suffer its alternate defeat. "
Arouse then, Whig friends, and prepare
for the conflict - Tou have all the elements of
victory. You have the right principle, the
right men, and the most men, if they are
brought into action. If yon are defeated, the
blame rests- with yourselves. ': Act unite
organize and all is safe. Fail to do so, and
all may be lost! Cley. Herald.
A Morsel for Townshend Free Soilers.
We call the attention of the Texas Freesoil-
er of the Sandusky Mirror, to the following
proceedings in the Senate, in reference to the
abolition of slavery in the District of Colum
bia:- " ; "
"Mr. Hale appealed to the friends of the
doctrine of the abolition of slavery in this dis
trict; that now there was a chance for them,
without any excuses that the motion is 'indis
crete, or 'inexpedient, because, sir, X pro
pose to leave out the details entirely. 1 move,
sir, to refer this bill to the committee on the
District of Columbia, with instructions to re
port a bill for the abolition of slavery in this
District, and 1 ask for the ayes and noes.

t THE MUM CANDIDATE.'
.Two years ago our democratic friends were
very indignant, that governor Ford should ask
of freemen their votes, and refuse to answer
all their silly idle questions. He Was denoun
ced as the 'mum' candidate, and a thousand
other opprobrious epithets were heaped upon
his devoted head, because he would not tell
how he intended to cast bis vote for president!
How is it now? Who is mum at this time?
Not upon idle impertinent inquiries, but upon
important political questions which divide the
parties, and deeply interest a large portion of
the people of bur state. Judge Wood, the
democratic candidate for governor has "no
opinions foi; the the public eye." -. His friends
have applied a pad-lock to his mouth, and will
not permit him to answer inquiries during the
campaign. While the leaders of his party are
electioneering for him as a slavery or anti-slavery

VOTERS OF SAXDCSKf COOTI !
Next Tuesday you will be called upon to
vote for state and county officers. Your vote
for these officers will also indicate your views
upon the 'main issue' presented by the Loco
focos of Ohio, says the State JourneL" If you
vote for Wood and co., you in effect give your
vote for the destruction of all the banks in
Ohio, and the substitution of the currency of
the surrounding states. You sanction the re
solves of the 4th of July convention, which de
clared it 'incompatible with the principles of
Democrats to participate in creating and up
holding banking institutions.'' You sanction
tbe report of Mr. Larwell in the constitutional
convention, that there shall be a clause in the
new constitution PROHIBITING the creation
of . any bank, company or corporation with
power to issue any notes or paper of any de
scription, to circulate as currency.' - .
Are the people of Sandusky county prepa
red for this step ? Ai e the laboring men, the
farmers, the mechanics prepared, to face the
consequences of the destruction, of our curren
cy! - Remember, the Locofocos are actively
engaged in thrusting these things upon you.
Remember, that it is only by active LABOR
and VIGILANCE that you can hope to meet
and overwhelm these opponents. You have
but little time in which to do the work. RE

have it so regulated by ourselves, and on such,
a foundation, as will engage the confidence f

to pay them interest on the same.. Why not
save this interest toourselves'. Would it not
be the extreme of folly, for our farmers to
permit their lands to go' . anploughed and mi

States, for their o wa ' use, when they could
raise a surplus on their own untouched lands,
of the . .same articles they purchase? Hoir
long would it be, before they would be impor
erished and ruined by such, a course? Yet
the principle of Banking is simOas. -7 V
The "State Bank of Ohio" has obtained the
confidence of the people... Under it they are
prosperering more happily than .they have
eyer done before, under any other Banking
system. Its notes are taken in preference to
all others. We have yet to hear of a single
one of those radical,- bank-hating. Locofocos,
who have refused to receive tbe ,"ed dogs,"
when offered them. They launch on them,
like a "duck on a June bug." Yet this bank
roust be destroyed! Not only this, but they
propose passing a law prohibiting any one to
receive or circulate paper money of any kind.
A law was passed some five or six lyears ago,
prohibiting the circulation of 'one dollar bills.'
.No one paid anjr respect tok. - It stood as
a dead letter on our statute book - And such
would be the fate of a law of the same kind, if
adopted now. : , , -, ; '"
. What object can the Locfocos have in view,
in destroying our banks" If a debt is owing
them, they are not compelled to take any thing
else but gold and silver in payment! They
are not bound to receive paper money for the
sale of their products? . What more . do they
want? I,. . -'-V-vv i :. 'V 'J :.iv 'V. s.

lost by them. , You eught not to. complattt

But have you not lost by some of your neigh

have you lost the most by the Banks or your

the latter. . Why not quit dealing with your

One of the most ready debaters, as well as
one of the most honest, upright and warm
hearted men in congress, is Lewis IA Campr
bell, of Ohio. If we mistake not he represents
Tom Corwtn's old district He has . col
league from the Pickaway district, who rejoie
es iu the name of Olds. ; Mr. Olds lately made
a speech in congress, in which he denouuee-
ed the Whigs and let off much about the A1
ien and Sedition Laws,' 'Bank of- the. United
States,'-'Protective; tariff,' Distribution,' 'The
Mexican War,' 'Bloody hands and hospitable
Graves,' &c -; In the course of- bis speech Mr
Campbell, who is always at borne on the old
issues as well as on the new ones, inquired of
his colleague, if Gen. Jackson had no, recconv.
mended a 'protective ; tariff.' Olds denied it,
and challenged Cambell to meet him on the
question. Campbell notified him that he
would hear trom mm the tirst opportunity that
offered, . Last week he got the floor and pro
ved conclusively, that the ,Gutta ; Fcfcha' or

against the protective tariff for and against

times to get Olds to say whether he
would not vote for the Wilmot proviso, but
he would not trive a direct answer. A corres

much . confused, and mado no reply, whilst a
burst of laughter Went up from all sides of tho

had cooled him off. : .Poor Oldsl he. looked tn
