THE DEMOCRAT. -, y.r PHILLIPS & PERKINS, E dito a s. I'or the Yuzoo Democrat. Philadelphia, July 2J, 1m53. Messrs. Editors This city of bro:herly love is not the busy, noisy, rattling place that iVw York is: but much more auiet. derinune huH quakerly. No slreet, nor hotel is thron-ul wi'h vast multitudes of strangers from every clime visiting for pleasure or business, as are those of New York; no houses actually open and buv every minute of the day and night; but all things seem to go on smoothly and pleasantly. Nor Jo the Phiiadelphiaits wear the euer, unea sy, restless look of the New Yorkers; nor do they walk or run all the time, as if a goad were behind, or a penny just ahead. For those w ho seek pleasure, unruffled and unostentatious without glare or hustle, this is the place. It's not so brilliant or splendid here, nor is it sodark and gloomy, not the extreme contrast of mighty wealth, and weak and tottering poverty a kind und durcd mediocritas Statistics show that with thousands fewer inhabitants there are thousands more houses; the palpable inference Irom which, is, that the poorer and working classes of Philadelphia have more and better roofs beneath which to rest. In ope house in New York, then; are sixty-four families or up watjs, containing seven hundred persons, or more, and there are many o'diers, w ith proper donate number. Here also, in most of the city, the inches of ground are not counted, but porte coes and gardens surround the dwellings. In New York, a space on Broadway ot 35 feet front, and 150 back, will sell for 8150 OftO ; and some of the lots for $300,000. And this may well be, for some houses rent tor G0,lX)0, und, that easi ly, w hen divided into office. Of course, such is not the case in this city of thee und thou,'' where greedy avarice has not as yet a permanent abode. Indeed, every thing here, is better suited to give quiet and unassuming enjoyment ; and to satisfy a moderate ambition or a laudable desire forweslih. Every thing, though a little sober looking, and every body . though a little too saint like, wear the pleasing aspect of peace, plenty, prosperity and happiness. The Paiks in the heart ot the city, are beaut iful, with their carpets of green grass, and w ith large and stalely trees, over which may be seen hundreds of gray and white squirrels, sporting in conscious securiiy, peering with timid eye at '.he promenaders, fear less of the bold and steady stare of man. There arc in these Parks or square.1: fountains dash ing up their Slight waters ; an I seats for thoe who, tire I of walking, desire rest. 'Tisa lovelv spectacle, an 1 so novel and unexpected M to strike the strang-r with an agwaMe and Jeii0ht ful surprise. The are called " i!c b igc .4 the city," and promote its health by purifying the air, inducing healthful and frequent exert i.-e. A lore! v promenade lor lovers, a place " to wooed be um," when' many gen'le tale of kindly affec tion has bevii whispered ; where many a tender heart has yielded its swetest lucense. How i dew w:sh I had some lovely creetur with some two kind- i;s. and some two kinder eyes and some one kinder heart, just to icaik with in that place. 1 wonder if oue on ye wont say. imeu" "or SO mote it be." Aud there are a . mitiv nandsome women here, wim trie rose of health blushing on their cheeks, heal hv strong an t vigorous, and apparently never need ing the " pills, powders or liquids' of th re noimed physicians, wdio live here. Yet, neither here nor elsewhere in the north, have they the elastic stept, delicate, yet perfect simmeiry ot form. Whew! These we like a heap; but those we love, oh sich a sight. I will trespass no longer, but bid you a good night &c. YAZQD. From the Mbi!e Tribune. " WHAT WILL THEY SAY ?" BY JULIA MILDRED HARKIsS. " What will they say7"' They will say what they please. If you do wrong, some will say you do right, and if you do right, some will say you do wrong. Truth to one is not truth to all, for every one sees through the spectacles of a partic ular prejudice. Do not be a weak rush wavering between breees. Be a strong rock to turn aside the striking winds. We scorn the loitering coward who yawns at each corner, bows o every "yes," dodges every "no," od whines "what will they say?" I know whaWiey ought to say that your grandmamafeused you with the frogs, and nod among the mushronms when you are tired. We respect the man who stands proud and firm, as though he was contemplating the sun the man whose step seems a command the man who has martial metal in him. 'What will they say?" Let ihem say what they plase. Show them that you are on an equilibrum that the world and nothing in it can unbal ance you. Give them an equal answer and they w ill soon be oblique. We do not like an elastic mark : it shifts the shaft back into our own bosoms. " What will they say ?" they will say what they please; but remember that slander slips in her own slime, and that virtue is always virtue. Virtue that cannot stand on temptation and not totter is a sham. Gold is not proved until it is purged. Do not be a coward and hide yourselt away under the shadows of fear, because "they will say." Pooh arise! soar up, aud, alike the ea gle, strengthen with the storm. Would light- ning-winged-Genus leap proud Pacnassus, if he paused to ask, "what will they say?" Would a lost world be redeemed if Jesus had said " my disciples what will the people say ?" Let them say What '.hey please ; their empty words will fall as aimless as paper balls, if you do this. Twine love around your heart : clap charity to jour bosom : centre your eye on eter nal truth : go by conscience, and let conscience go by God. Aunt Ifu'iett Becltn Stowc AS SLSO Br J. K.' S.JAUTH' or kuekel's niohtim OA-E OPERA TROUP. I went to New York city a,. month or two ago, A hunting for that lady, Aunt Halett Becba StoW'S ; 1 see'd the B' blitions. dey said she'd gone away, l)e told m indat ciiv in wu'nt no use to stay jhe tai'e aua de dollar, and put'em in Im pocket.

Lor bresa de Southern Ladies, and my Old Vir giuny home, But dou'f come back, Aunt Ha'iett. In England make a fuss, Go talk against your country, put money in your puss, And when us happy niggers you pity in your prayer, Oh ! don't lorgit da white slaves, dat's starvin ober dar. Chorus Go! Go! Aunt Ha'ett Heche Stowe, 1'se glad you left the country, den don! come bSck no mo'e. CiiiLur.K.v and Bachelors. The local man of the Albanv Knickerbtcker soliloquizes as follows about childhood and bachelorhood : " Oh that we were a boy again !" Bless their tear little hearts, how we love children. We ilways let them have fWir own way, unless they pull tVe cat's tail an I torture dumb creatures, su"h as pulling the legs and w ings off of flies, -ealiu roafeottoaary, and poking straws in heir m uhe-"s ear when she is stealing a nap. vVe naves cold them for making mud pies or not keeping their uoses clean, for we recollect when we were a child our's used to have its own way. Foriiifuiiiess has blotted out the records of uu happy mo men is passed in earlv manhood, but I mory, Go I Dless her. still empties in our lap in apron full Or good things we enjoyed when a child. An dd bachelor is a poor, forsaken, unprovi ded tor creature. No voung vines sprout at its roots, and no grapesare gathered from its branch 's H ' ut;s. toils and sweats for himself alone nd nobody else. He returns a,t eve to his soli tary abode and no smiling angel says: " My dear, where have you staid so long?" No lisping children climb his knee, and with cherub tones beseei h daddy for them thugarkitheth." He oleeps cold in winter for want of a comforter nnd his sumuiers.are ripe with false blossoms ol hope. He is paying his addresses to solitary wo through lite, finally to be wedded with the cold sods of the valley. Poor, miserable bachelor. Happy married man, with an angel for a wife and a dozen of little cherubs. Happily Krroasn. We learn from a reliable source, that as a married couple were traveling on a steamboat, bound from New Orleans to an up stream port, the man sickeued and died. When the boat touched at this point, the bereav ed and distressed widow landed here with the corpse, an undertaker was sent for, who came ami took the measure for a coffin. The coffin was prepared, the body deposited therein, and all was in readiness to take the mortal remains of that dear husband to its last, final resting place. The lady, with all the fond affectiou and deep love ol a wife, begged the privilege of ta king one more look, a last parting kiss, on him who was more dear to her than all others upon earth. The lid was taken off, and as she laid upon that cold, icy brow, bathing it in tears, and smothering those cold icy lip6 with warm kisses, a sort of consciousness and sympions of life became apparent, the body was taken from the coffin, and a physician sent for. Our tale is soon told. The man soon became convalescent, and but a few days since the happy couple took passage from here on an up stream boat, nnd are now en route for their place of destination. But for that fond, loving wife, the husband might now be lying in a cold, damp grave. Memphis Whig. Gapes m Chickens. A correspondent of the Plow, the Loom, and the Anvil, furnishes the following communication for a late number of that paper: "I propose from thirty years' experience to give the cause and prevention of gapes. The cause is found in the habit of keeping male chick ens from year to year in the same flock of hens. Theii successors are selected from the same flock until the chickens become feeble, and 6ne of the sad effects is ihe gapes. To effectually prevent their occurrence, select males from a flock from which there have not been erosses. Having re moved all of your own, repeat this every year, and my word for it you will not need a cute fox gapes. The same is true of turkeys." From the ('harleston Mercury. The Pacific Railroad. Among the most interesting indications of the policy of the Administration which have been disclosed during the tour to Nsw York, we place the remarks of the Secretary of War end the Secretary of the Treasury at I he reception in Philadelphia. The Philadelphia American, wIiom editor took part in the entertainment, in an arti cle on the subject of a railroad to the Pacific says : " The Government, through two of its princi pal Secretaries, has declared in lavor of the un dertaking as a work of national necessity, and it has declared loo. in favor of Its being construc ted, as a Government work, by the Government. No constitutional difficulties are apprehended to be in the way, no constitutional scruples appear to be entertained ; the clause is designated con ferring the power under which it can be nude ; the surplus funds in the Treasury are pointed at as available for the purpose, and as capable of being apj.lie 1 more beneficially in this mode tlian in ny other ; and, accordingly, we are juatined in believing hatGen. Pierce has determined to place the building of the Pacific railroad at the head of the measures which are to constitute his policy, and that he means lo aacure for his Ad ministration the glory of commencing tha grand est, as it is destined to prove the most btnefi cent work of internal improvement ever atleip icu oy numan nanus, it was in ms presence, aut therefore assuredly, with his previous knowledge, arid full concurrence, that Col. Davis and Mr. Guthrie gave utterance to words on the subject which, we are sure, will be read with one senti ment of pleasure throughout the entire length and breadth of the United States." The plan here indicated, (continues the Mercury,) it is well know to our readers, is the one which this paper has always advocated from the com mencement of the discussion in the Senate last winter. We advocated the measure as one of plain necessity to the protection of the Pacific region, and its construction by the Government as the constitutional and proper mode of reali zing the object. We rejoice to see that the Ad ministration has taken this view of a question likely to have so great a place in the practical politics of the next four years. Col. Davis views are so exactly our own. so well expressed , and so significant of a settled policy, that we quote them atome length. The PaiDESt without a Shilling. The Washington Star is responsible for the following: Not long since, the President in an afternoon ride w i th his estimable lady and a female friend, was brought up by the gate upon the Columbia Turnpike, on the opposite side of the Potomac. His coachman searched his pocket3 in vain for the requisite shilling. The President searched his. But, alas, not a solitary shilling had they among them ! The toll gatherer, who is at times annoyed by the pranks of the " fast" folks pass ing bis gate on their way to the trotting course , w ithout " holding up" to pay toll, began to think of closing the bar upon the carriage, when the driver informed him that the gentleman in side was the Presi.lent of the IJni ted States, and the Gentleman inside made it all right by prom ising to pay the shilling when next he should venture to ride on the Virginia side. Budding or Inoculating As the time for opeiation will soon be here. we insert the following, which we copy from Hendricks Work on Orcharding," and com mend it to the attentiou of all desiring informa tion on the subject, as about the best directions that can be given, and if properly followed, will result in uniform success. In cases of failure the operator must blame himself, and not the the directions : "Inoculating is the operation of transferrin;; any desirable variety of tree upon the stock of an inferior w ild variety. The operation is prin cipally practiced on small trees, and only during the time the sap flows freely, and chiefly during the months of August and September. Select for the buds the ripest young twigs of the pres: ent year, and cut off the leaves, leaving the footstalk entire. Having selected ssmooth place in the stock, make a perpendicular slit down ward, quite through the bark, an inch or a little more in length. Make a cross cut at the top of this slit quite through to the wood, a little slant ing downward; next, with the ivory haft of the budding knife, raise the bark on both sides from top to bottom, being very careful not to injure in the least the cambium or sap wood. Next, and with expedition, proceed to take off a bud. This is effected by entering the knife a little more than half an inch below the bud or eye, quite through the bark, and separating the bark from the wood to the same distance above the eye, always leaving a Very thin slip of wood of about one-third of the length of the bud ; this thin slip of wood occupies the middle section of its length. The bud is to be inserted in the stock to the bottom of the slit, and between the berk and Wood; and the top of the bud being squared even with the cross cut, every part ex cept the eye is firmly bound, and covered w ith strong wet bass stnng or matting.'' (CjF Dan Russell the, self-nominated Can didate. Anecdote-Dan, while amusing the "gov ereigus" hare on Tuesday last, told a pretty story inproof of his wondrous independence of C ventions. The tale ran thus: Dsn locked him self up in the Auditor's office at night, closed the ponderous shutters, adjusted bars and drew bolts, and being in the dark lit a candle. Dan theu formed a convention, elected himself chairman, nominated himself, and it was unanimously agreed to! A huge laugh followed this ingeni ous fiction ; but it came from those who did not know that this same Hon. Dan. R. Russell was regularly nominated in the Whig convention at Jackson, as the candidate nj that party for And itor oj Pvblic Accounts! ! and is now running, and is advocated by the federal press as the whig candidate. Let Democrats everywhere under stand this fact, and not be cajoled by the clever buffoonery of Mr. Russell from the support of that estimable roan and 6tsrllng Democrat, Mad ison McAfee, the republican candidate for Aud itor.
