BROOKVILLE APRIL, 2, 1SK. w. 1 1. i'osTi;i:, j imTcjTu. The Democratic Caucus. The Democratic members of the House, who met iii caucus tu fix upon tt plan fur tlic ndtot-sioii of Kansas, atifactory to loth wings of the parly, havo utterly failed to airreo and have hcpuratcd iu Lad liumtr. The breach uontinuca to widen, and it is now regar ded as tcrU'in, that the bill will bo do " feutcd, unless some unforöcon change, takes place. Yesterday, (Thursday) was the day fixed fur a final trial in the House. It is believed that tho Eepub cans, Anti-Lccompton democrats und leading Americans will ull unito upon the Crittenden amendment, which will givo the opposition uno liuudred and twehty-ono votes. If tho Crittenden uLstitutu should pas.- tlio House, the Senato will never concur in it, and the vLolu matter will bo gono over again. When bliall wc havo un end to this vex atious question ? Th Tariff of 1813. It will lc remembered that Mr. J. I). Williamson, whowasbrought befowthe Congressional investigating Cominitto - u fliort time since, testified that the Tai ill of 18 IC, was carried through Coli grew by tho bribing ot certain mem- Urs. That seven millions of dollars of Dritish money, and eighty thousand francs from France, were used for that purpose. This may, or may not bo true, but when wo look about and sco tho pros trate condition of the country, -the ro- Iticed xvnei, the want of employment of our laboring men, tho furnace, for gc and factorieH that aro stunding Idle, and tho general ruin that stalls abroad over tho country, and to think that my ct of men, profiling to havo Intelligence, would bo guilty of such wuntou legislation, of which all this i.s tho known result, we are inclined to believe the truth of tho sworn testimo ny of Williamson in regard to tho mat ter. Just to think of two hundred and filly neven millions of dollar: balance of trado against us iu seven year, under what may bo property styled tho lrit tiidi Tariff tho Tariff ol IS IG. Is this not nufticient to bring financial trouble upon tho country, to spread ruin and desolation in every household in the lar.d? However, true, or untruo the fttatementof Willie mson may bo, wheth cr tho parage of the act was, or was not effected by bribery, its result is w ell know and felt by thousands upon thou and of its poor laboring victims. The whojo country feels it to their sorrow, und will feel it until a change of policy is produced. Wo believe in protection to American labor, protect:on to Amer ican mechanics and protection toAmcr IntcrcbtH, in every possible way. Wc owo lho duty to ourselves to take care of American interests in preference to cjuouragi'ig foreign monopoly the fame as it become tho duty of every ouui . to protect his own household hi iprcferviico to that of another. Twice an tho last thirty year, havo wc witncs- cd tho effect of n reduction of a Tariff enacted for tho purposo of a (lord in protection to American labor, and at the Famo timo affording abundant rev aiujo to tlio country, and regulating our commerce in euch a way us to kecj itUo Lai a iK o of trado in our favor. The financial trouble of 1SIJ7, was lho result ofn reduction of tho Tariff of IMS, luring tho existence of which tho foun dry had never been in fo prosperous a condition. Tho namo Is true in rela tion to tho financial troublo of 1S57, which should bo uttributed to tho re peal of tho Tariff of 1812, and tho en uctmcnt iu Ituteaijof tho Tariff of 1810. .

Assignment. , We are sorry toannounco the failure and assignment of ono of our princi pal mercantile firms, Messrs Tyncr & Kimble, who have assigned all their ef fects to John Koberls, for the ber.ciil ol their creditors. We regret this very much, for a more clever or better pair of business men, wo havo not in our community. They havo been active, industrious and economical in their bu sincs , andmcritnnd will have the sym pathy of tic entire community. Their assets aro abundantly ample to meet all their liabilities, and they have been driven to thU unpleasant situation solely by their inability to make col lections. How men who owo merchat ts for tho supplier of necessaries, which they havo got from them on credit, and who havo barns and cribs full of farm pro ducts which they refuse to sell and thus realize money to liquidate their debts, simply because prices are not up to the mark set by their inflated iinngfbations, can rest well, o. havo tho audacity to look their creditors in the face, is more than wo have yet been. able to learn. Vet it is so, and these men will stand by and behold with Impunity, merchants thrust to the wall, struggling to save their credit and writhing with the fear that they will bo driven to that extrem ity, tho thought of which, causes every honest business man to shudder, and tho full forco of which nono save busi new men have a just and proper concep tion. Iov much better would it bo if those why are in debt to tho merchants and others would sell off their surplus stock, even though they had to do it ut u sacrifice, and pity their debts. The loss would thus, instead of falling upon and sacrificing tho few, bo distributed among the many, nnd under this kind of inlluenco lho country would soon "right up" from tho pressure that ha (alien upon us and matters would again move on smoothly. Wo know it is hard for men who have been getting $l,öü und S2,h) per bush el for wheat, and paying corresponding high prices for labor, to consent to sell their wheat for 70 cents; but in tho end it Would bo much better. I'l esent pros peels indicate that U mut bo done at somo tune, and lho sooner the better. Let every man who is in debt resolve to sell off all ho can spare and thus extri cate himself, and our financial Storni will soon blow over. It is hardly worth while to caution agahi-t going in debt, fn we be'.ieve tlio entire country has checked up on that score and uro living as economically as possible. This i- right. Wo havo all been living too last been to anxious to make a fortune in a day a leaction has taken place and wo must lor :t while content ourselves with slow traveling. The adoption of thccWi system would work a remedy for all theso evils and we hope tho country will soon be in a eon dition and have tho disposition to up ply it. For Congress. We notice that lb Hums, Ksq., offers himself as a sacrifice upon the altar ol .1 Jcmociatic Congressional nomina tion, and is posted to canvass the county previous to tho lasting of tho Demo cratic Convention in Julie. Un will speak in Uroukvillo or. sho 7th, proxi mo "tho weather permitting." We know nothing of this gentleman, but if ho is to go to Congress, wo hope ho is "light on tho goose," that is, the Kansas question ; not as being applica ble to Kansas particularly, for wo ex pect, and hope that part of it will soon bo settled in somo shape, but as appli cable to other Territories applying fur admission hc-reallcr; without which rcquxito Mr. Hums, nor any other J 'em- ocrat will stand n ghost of a chanco ot being elected. Such being the case, wo do not know that it matters much from which party we elect, so that he comes up to tho', JclVeisonian standard of hon esty and capability. Wo aro in favor of both parties nominating good men tx'lti.tlc belter than wo havo had, and n little better than to continue feuino who uro now in office, and who w ould like to to tlettcd again, Tho Sumner Court Martial, Cid. Sumner, w ho was recently court martialed at Carlisle barracks for chal lenging (ten. Harney to fight u duel, has been in quiled. Tho New York Times says that this result "will bo eminently gratifying to tho country.as it certainly is to tho army. (ten.

With tho subscrip tion already obtained, mado reliable by tho decision of tlio Supremo Court in tho caso of the Company vs. McCarty vt Adair, it will only bo necessary for our County Commissioners to add from two to th reo thousand dollars to secure lho much desired improvement. Will they do it? We hesitato not, to say yes. Their proverbial liberality whero tho whole interest of tho Count so muclu demands it, ani tho present inaccessi ble iositicii of the poor house, forbids any other answer. With a bridgo com plete, wo havo almost half tho work of a Turnpike road done to tho Cincinnati ,t Indianapolis llailroad. It is but fourteen miles, through x. densely popu lated, for so broken a country, furnish ing a largo amount of trado and busi ness to our town and canal, which must greatly increase, as its resources aro ful ly developed. With n good (jrauld road up tho val ley of Wolf, across the waters of l'ipc creek, and thenco by Oldcnburgh tollun- tersville, or a point between liatcsvillo and Spade's Station, wo can make Cin cinnati inoirand Indianapolis in fine hours, tho only sure and certain meth od by which Urookvillo can cheapo tho fatal designation of "a finished (own." Wo havo ft beautiful nnd romantio sit uation, with unsurpassed water privi liges; tho county seat of u largo, popu- lousand wealthy county, w ith ft healthy, industrious ami moral population. As men luiving duties to perforin, let II finish our bridge, build this road, and thereby avail ourselves of the only im mediate improvement possible for a de velopment of tho result rccsof our town and (surrounding country. For Ilia np-okOll AwiVflU. Horticultural Societies. Mr. Editoii: -Tho importance of Horticultural Societies, in all jnrt of tho country should bo manifest to tho farming communitya al.-voitstwin asso ciate Agriculture. The former moro es pecially should be fostered, promoted and properly appreciated by all persons of whatsoever capacity or calling. A residence of forty years in this western country has satisfied mo of its impor tance and influence in a conspicuous point of view. We will instance Cin cinnati in lSlft, what wero the chief fruits that filled the market at that pe riod, generallyl why native, but few graded, as the communication with the Mastern states being long nnd difficult therefore scarcely nircein.m orthntMr could be considered good, but now through tho inlluenco of lho Cincinna ti Horticultural Society it is rare to see bad fruit in the market. To that soci ety tho public owes, particularly to a few enterprising individual.s.mueh mer it, yet, that society has not met the sup port from our citizens commensurate to their laborious industry. There is no person that visits tho mar ket to purchase fruit, vegetable, 01 (lowers, but derives a benefit font tho im provement in those luxuries so essential to our comfort. Tho causo of those improvements aro not for ono moment attributed to tho society by those bene fited, or the society would bo better sus tained. The premiums paid by tho so- cn v amount to largo sums yearly; this alone i i!:o main spring and incentive to instill iu tho liorticulturalist a desiic to improve and cultivate nono but tho best of everything in this lino. Tho farmers and ail other, in your community ought injustice to tho pres ent ami rising, generation, subscribe, und join a nocioty in your town, for the" (lifi'usion of knowledgo on that topic unless your citizens manifest a lively interest on tho subject it cannot bo ex pected that farmers will go out of tho rctiuuo of tho "even tenor of their way," to meet thier family expenses no sir! they maxt havo somo Incentive to promoto on interest for a publio ben cllt, it few exception only. A well or ganized society offering liberal preml urns for all new and choi'.u fruit, would bo a great wtiiuulcnt to (ho improve incuts of what the community aro daily consuming, not only as n luxury, but one of tho necessaries of life. If re ports aro (rue, lho Cincinnati Jlorticul tural Society at all times aro willing to iiHsUt their co laborers In diffusing thero experience to others, and enterchang- lug grails of choice fruit trees, also, Im porting thero knowledgo of all tho best fruits to others as well as tho best nnd different modes of pruning, a great do sideratum,so that a farmer desirous of planting out ft young orchard by nppli cation can learn the names of all fruit trees worthy of culture. Tin's bavin1; fruits maturing from early harvest un til lato in spring, information that could not lave been obtained before the for mation of our western Horticultural Societies, for it will be found many fruit trees that will succeed well in tho Jiast, will not westol tho mountains. noimcmruiiALisT.

It should have been done long ago, and Urookvillc will never rival Cincinnati until it is done.

I hope the Jlip Van Winkles of Urookvillo will soon awake, and not only sco tho neces sity .of bridirinir both tho forks of White Water, but also put their hands in their pockets, and forthwith put two bridges there, which shall bo a credit and a means of revenue to your town. I don't wish to find fault, but will just say, by way of remark, that if the abutments of tho laet bridgo over the cast fork had been put m oven half honestly, the bridge would liaro remain ed until this day.
