Why is it t in all aes of the wrld, and! andpr every fIotm of goveamment that ever exis- i Led, the favored few have controlled the pgmast masses of mankind, imposing upon them burdens uriginating in injustice and oppression? Then answer to this important ques.ton, though simn pie, is not properly understood by those who get their bread by the *swear of their brow." Let us see i we can firnish the answer. It is simply because the few have intelligence which the many have not, and that intelligence prescribes laws which protects itself, while it saddles burdens upon the many, and refuses to make'provisions for the proper culthivation and enlightesing of the middling and lower classes ofrcklty. We have demagogues enough to stun the multitude with their senseless declamations in favor of the "dear people," and weary them with their hypocritical quotatio.n-"coZpopuli, so_ Des," but these people loving vote seekers no sooner find themselves comfortably seated in halls of l gislations than they torget the shoema kers, mad tathrs, and carpenters who helped place thbe there, and when a meajsre comes mp for the benefit of the working classes they1 kill it off with silent indifference, or halt at some artificial scrtples abqt constitutignplity, or take an eponomical fitand talk about squandering the public treasures. Yes, they can fieely vote that no alteration shall be made in the law allowing .a member Qf Congress more than twenty-five hundred dollars for traveling fees between Lou. Isiana and the District of Columbia, but schemes for the general difbhsion of education, lfr the cl evationof all the laboring classes by which they may be enabled to know their rights and true interest, cost too much, and no strong voices and vigorous minds are found among the friends ,ofthe "dear people" to push these measures as they'should be pushed. Give our mechanics, and the laboring classes generally the proper light--make them capable of understanding clearly what their political rights and interests are, and they will not be galled by false pretensions and false names whether in an empire, a kingdom or a republic their strong arm and vigorous will wouid dely. botif the cunning and .the force of all opposition. In a goveranmeat like ours it is economy ted. Sucatse every citizen, high and loow. It matters no thing if it costs millions and hundreds of millions, still the masses should be educated so as to vote and act intelligently. Educate the people and they will keep our government and our riters brsight. Educate them. pad overy branch of industry, managed by intelligence w.I be more productive, sad this will increass infinitely the wealthef the mrtion. Give hemn schools, libra. sies, reading rooms that all may have access to, and the nation wil be inf.gitely more prosper. ous and happy. The power will then be in the bsnds of the many where i ought to be, and the bonet sad litelilgenee of the masses will be a better fi~I6 for our goveresent to test upao than od any other loondatien under heatve.

We take the f llowing from the "Carmpaign Standard," a Democratic paper started at New Orleans to enlighten the people, to te published until November, and to aid in carrying the State for the Democrats in the coming election. This' popular song was first published in the "Plaque mine Democrat," and the Standard thinks it wor. th of being copied, and so do we. DICK STEWART. Air.-"Old Dan Tucker. The Rev'd Dirk is a mighty man, ie used to ride old Darby Ram; Be rode to Baton Rouge to see the bill, If hbe hadn't come away he'd been there still. Chors-So get out of the way with your joker and tun, [repeat trice.] Get out of the way with your thundering gun, Johnny's on his way to Washington. The Rev'd Dick is a bragging man, But he can't ride Jobo llarmanson; He rode Judge Saundors out of sight, While he opposed with all his might. Get out of the way, the chink can save you Repeat twice. And up Salt river or the d-lwill have you Thbe Colonel is a foble saint, Whogwhen hard prjss'd, is apt to faint; It makes no use to sweat and cry. His thirty-two better is all in my eye. Get out of the way, you fainting nag Oh ? don't you hear the parson brag. The Rev'd Dick is growing old, His under teeth begin to mould; His nose sticks out and his eyes stick in, And his under lip sticks down to his chin. So get out otjhe way, you are badly beaten. Johnny will yogr coffee sweeten. The apostle Mac he left the track, Who thrashed the Qblonel and Old Zack; Our nag come out of the piney wood, -The people shout he is true and good. So get out of the way for the true and tried,I Yon can't begia to keep along side. CYPRESS KNEE. Can anything be conceived more ridiculous! than the idea of opposing candidates for office by such means and with such weapons as those used in opposition to the Whigs, not only of this, state, but throughout the Union. Look at these; lines in the above campaign song "The Rev'd Dick is a bragging man, )But he can't ride John Harmauson; 'He rode Judge Saunders out of sight &c," The above is neither wit. poetry, nor common sense. Such a mesr would hardly answer for the "Ethiopian serenaders" If the author had stolen the following, and introduced it into his s.og, it would have doubtless added much to the. Gaeamy of the production. "Born in Old Virgiaia, cradled in a trough La. thad M..aimLand caught the whooping If the Standard would employ some likely ne Igro, of the right kind of politics, to write cam paisgn mog until after election, he might do much good, and much wholesome trtgh might be placed before the people. Here is another splinter from the "eypress kee." "The Rev'd Dick growing okl, His unoder teeth begin to mould; His nose sticks out, and his eyes stick in, And his under lip sticks down to his chin." Should Mr. Stewart'. age make him a sub. ject of ridicule? No white man should even say so, and a man of any color would be severely reprimanded for so absurd an idea. Our old men of either party would object to it. And should the condition of his teeth decide what his merits are I A dog, or even a horse would be worthless withou teeth, but we have yet to learn that good masticators are essential qualifications for members ofCongress; eves OkRitchie does not require teeth in his #cial capacity, for he osly growls and snarls, and that can be done tolerably well without teeth. His osoe sticks out, and his eyes stick in," 3He mut have been hard pushbed for objectioes who opposes Dick Stewart beeamse his wno saks ouat. We have rarely seen a man w nose does sot stick at. Doesn't armanmson's stiek out ? If it does not, we do not know that a man with a peg soee, or o no e at all, would make a better M. C. than a mra with a loeg nose. If noes are sort ofd ranih rae' te t the capacity of the intellect, a ile ose indicating a blg brain, we shrll have to measure Morse's and Ogden's bowsprius to e which can carry the biggest gib, and the bsortest nose must go to Congress: As it regards his eyes stickin ig, we presume it is meant that they stick in his head, and as that is the place br a man's eyes we will let them stay there. Az4n his under lip sticks down to his chin." If his lip naturally sticks to his chin it is'bo disgrace o him 4 but if the rhyme.maker speaks -gauratvely, we think Mr. Stewart has got HIar. dmason in a corner in regard to his speculating is the swamp lands of this State, and the doubt. eld ebrater of his inentiome is getting up the swamp bill, and the dsadivantages which it will be to the State, that makes a complete apron of his democratic lip, covering not only his chin hut the greater past of bis throat ; and we judge ethat twart would he pereestly williag to s -h Zips with him any day. He haus already mased them with him tso ems for the bese. & ef his opponent, and we think e will be will. ing to measure again after election.

Is the Standard sincere in regard to his que ries ? or are they mere Spasish ,ride thrusts, or stabs in the dark ? We will endeavor to answerthe "Standard's" queries by suggesting others, which, when an swered correctly, will call forth the true an awers to the above. Did Mr. Ritchie once state, in the Richmond Enquirer. "We would deprecate General Jack. son's election as a curse upon the country ?" and "Compare Jockson with Adams and Craw-. 'ford, and how inferior he must appear ?" Was not this same Mr. Ritchie afterwards Gen. Jacksous resolute supporter t Is it not agreed that Mr. Walker and Plauch shall peregrinate through the State, and vary their doctrines to suit circumstances ? Did Gen. Walker, when candidate for the of fice of U. S. Senator in 1834 in opposition to Judge Porter, after his defeat. say that befelL his defeat the more sensibly, as his opponent (Judge Porter) was a Foreigner, or naturalized citizen, and that he did not think it proper to elerate such citizens to so high a post ? Why did Gen. Walker not vote for Jaekson in preference to Adams for the presidency in !1824 ? Was he afraid of Old Hickory's Irish blood also ? Is this Geu. Walker's Democracy? MEDICtNE FOR CALIFOR`IA.-' luh recenti accounts from California do not produce any fef. verish excitement at present. It is now cur rently reported that but tew who go there lay. up much money-that there is much danger to be apprehended from sickness, privations and exposures, and that most of the letters written from California by ofcliers in the employ of gov. ernment, were written for the purpose of in. ducing emigrants to flock to that country by which to enhance the price of lands in which these officers were speculating. Those who are at home may thank their stars that they are not in California. TxPr AxcAc.-Gen. Sir Charles Napier, an out and out temperance man, recently ap pointed to the command of the British army in India, addressed one of the regiments, on his landing at Calcutta, in the following strain-the spirit of which.might be imitated with advan are by military officers the world over : 1 aeL vbr ,e, to M. - , , a,- we have.both been a good deal ,wold since we were last together, a.O .h very glad to hear such a good accouaf of the regiment. Your colonel tells me that you are not only in that you have very few men in hospital. Now, this is all right, and I hope you will continue to bear a good character. But let me give you a bit of advice-that is. don't drink. I know young men do not think much about advice from old men. They put their tongue in their cheek, and think they know a good deal better than the old cove that is giving them advice. But let me tell you that you are come to a country where, if you drink, you're dead men. If you ye sober and steady, you'll get on well. But if you drink, you're done for. You will be either invalided or die. I know two regiments in this country-one drank, the other did not drink. The one did'nt drink is one of the flest regi meants, and has got on as well as any regiment in existence. The one that drank has been all but destroyed. I know that there are some who will drink in spite of the devil and their officers -but men will soon be in hospital, and very few who go in, in this country, ever come out again. AlUstCANx PROPAGA)eDIST. -A Calilornitan emigrant, writing from Chili, says: We think se of overturning the Chiliaa Repulic beor we leave. It savors too much ofthe Mexican and the officers are generally disliked, from the President down to the wulicers! of the cutoms. The foreign residents here, all American and English, compiain bitterly.
