J6g Orders solicited anil promptly answered. QMaTiy years since, a distinguished man, whose eloquence and intellect shod an unfading lustre upon his name, and who was recognised as a fearless and high-minded leader of the Democratic party, boldly declared I bat it was held together only ty " the cohesive power of public plunder." At that time the Democratic party presented to the people a platform of principles containing tangible and substantial issues directly involving the great interests of the whole nation. It advocated a particular policy in reference to the taut!, the currency, internal improvements by the General Govern ment, and the distribution of the proceeds of the public lauds. Upon all those qneslion it was then a unit, and held tbo same opinions North and South, East and If est But as it was perceived that the Democratic dogHtts in reference to these subjects were becoming un popular in this or that or the other locality. the unity of the party in regard to each and all of these issues was broken, and now, more emphatically than when Calhoun uttered the sentiment, the Democratic party is held togeth er only by the cohesive power of public plun der. It has no other opinion or sentiment in common. Individuals may think as they please upon every subject of public policy, but so long as they call themselves Democrats they are imperatively required to vote for Demo cratic candidates for office, and so lung as the public plunder is the prize to be won they will stand together as a Democratic party, " one and indivisible." Patriotism is utterly out of the question. Hie interests 0f the nation are as dust in the balance compared with a party triumph, and the lamentable apd disgraceful spectacle is presented to the C3-es of the people of a great, political organization without any distinct and peculiar political opinions, held together purely by mercenary motives and controlled by despotism the worst of all despotisms parly spirit. When Fernando Wood said to the editor of the New York Courier and Enquirer, just previous to the mayorality election in 1 "1 know my party well. Were I to go home and cut the throat of one of my family, I should none the less be elected Mayor of New York next Tuesday by five thousand majority" he uttered a solemn troth, indica--ting the extent to which party tyranny had already l?cn carried by the Democratic leaders and their reliance solely- upon the precision of party drill and not upon the intelligence and freed m of opinion of the people. Andwhec John Cochrane declared, a few days ago at Tammany Hall, that, "were Fernando Wood a devil incarnate, the fact of las selection as the standard-hearer of his -party is enough to rally to his support the ranks of the Democracy, the seutiment was applauded by the assembled hosts of Democrats and acknowledged to be soundly Democratic. Are the Democrats of Kentucky willing to endorse these sentiments ? Are they such abject slaves to their party leaders that they dare not vote in opposition to the candidate of their party crew if he were a felon, or the devil himself incarnate ? We ask them in serious earnestness if such a party, or if any party avowing -such infamous and despicable subjec tion to arty tyranny, is fit to select those who ar either to make or to administer our laws. The sentiments uttered by Fernando WvaMM Ju 0m.-fi.azn. nuic ivUTtny OT IHC lips of ft pirate chieftain who acknowledged no law qf God or man, but obeys only his own vile passions and the laws of physical force. They ar fit to be spoken only of a band of banditti who have been justly driven out from all civilized society. Louisville Journal. De Gentle at home There are few fami lies, we imagine, anywhere, in which lovo is not abused as furnishing the license tor im politeness. A husband, father or brother will Bpeak harsh words to those he loves best, and those who love him best, simply because the tecurity of love and family pride keeps him from "citing his head broken. It is a shame that a man will speak more impolitely, at times, to his wife or sister than he would to any otlter female, except a low and vicious one. It is thus that the honest affections of a man's nature prove to be a weaker protec tion to a woman in the family circle than the restraints of society, and that a woman usu ally is indebted to the kindness aud polite ness of life to those not belonging to her own . household. Things ought not so to be. The man who, becanpc it will not be resented, in fliets his spleen and bad temper upon tlm e of his hearthstone, is a small eoward, and a very me.tn man. Kind words are circulating mediums between true gentlemen and ladies at home, and no polish exhibited in society can atone for the harsh language ai d disre spectful treatment too often indulged in be tweep those bound together by God's own ties of blood, and the i-tili more saerejJ b nds of conjugal love. Life IMustrated. A Uniform Currency. This is what the people of the United States now are most in need of. Let us have American industry duly protected, and a national and uniform currency and all will be well. If there be one truth, above all others, well settled in political economy, it is that if wc would have our nation happy and prosperous, it will have to be furnished with a sound, national u n i form currency. It is as essential as uniform ity is in our standard of weights and measures. C urrency is the life-blood of the body politic. Its supply should be equal and uniform. Every throb of the heart is felt to the utmost extremities. If the regular flow and pulsation fail, languor and taintness follow. The pohti cal empirics have administered dose upon dose, and tried experiment after experiment, until the patient is prostrate and helpless, writhing Z J 1 - f i f r f y juagouy anu impionng ior renei. rniia News. The Senatorship. The Washington correspondent of the New York Times, writes to that journal: Advices from Louisiana indicate that Senator Benjamin's chances of re-election are diminishing, for the reason that the Democrats of the western part of the State insist upon haying a Senator from among their own number. 1 his seems but fair, as the eastern part of Louisiana is in the hands Of the Americans, and the Democratic character of the State is due entirely to the West. Important Actioh. It will be seen by our report of proceedings, that the House of Rep resentatives has combinde in one bill provisions repealing the acts authorizing the Bank of Mo bile anb the Southern and Northern Banks of Alabama to issue notes for less than $5, and prohibiting the circulation within this State of the notes of banks of other States less than that denomination'. It has, rlso, by another bill, restricted the" Free Banks" in the same manner. Both these bills were yesterday or dered to be engrossed for a third reading, by vote indicative of their final passage Mon 6ery Mail. A CONTRAST. Who gains by thr, over-importation of jorcign goods, ana the consequent, over issue of Bank notes, and the suspension of specie payments f The Federal office holders, who. under the Sub-Treasury system, receive their salaries in gold and silver, while the general value of property is reduced one halt., The money lenders and usurers, whose gold and silver is augmented in value in a ratio corresponding with the depreciation of bank paper and reduction ot property. The rich, wha are thus made richer, while the poor are reduced to still greater poverty And who loses ft the destruction of cred it, thus brought, about (ij over importation ? The farmer, whose farm is reduced in value one half, and its productions in equal propor tion The laborer, who is either utterly deprived of the means of earning his daily bread, or is compelled to work at about one half the pri ces received by him before. These are the fruits of excessive importa tions, superinduced by a locofoeo free trade revenue policy, which discriminates in favor of foreign pauper labor, instead of protecting American labor. Philadelphia News. Cov. Wise's Company. The N. O. Delta, in alluding to the recent letter of this gent lemau, has the following: " We would not deliberately charge Gov. Wise with a malicious and cold-blooded design to solicit the sympathy and support the pur poses of the enemies of the. South ; but it is somewhat singular and perhaps a significant and ominous circumstance, that for nearly twelve months the Governor has been the peculiar pet of such Northernjournalsasthe N. Y.
