It must be obvious to every sincere democrat that nothing can better insure our miccckh in the approaching; contest than a perfect unity of uction. The principles which the democracy hac always been tailoring to perpetuate tho principle pro mulgated by Jcflerson and maintained by Jackson and Van Buren arc of such vital importance to lh welfare of our republican institutions, us to demand our ulmo4 activity and viijilimcr. ,.We wo the opposition, composed of every hue and co lor, moving in a soli J phalanx. We see the north ern abolitionist, in his hypocritical garb, lending Ilia aid to tho opposition candidate; wo ace the outhern slave-holder, sacrificing the principles for which he hns heretofore nobly contended, lake to his bosom the adder which threaten with ils poi sonous sting to pierce hit heart, by supporting a sndidnU? for the presidency who owes bin nomi nation to the abolitionists of the north ; we see masons and anti-masons, Tarilf and aiiti-TarilV men, and all the various other factions discontent with the pure precepts of democracy, lay asido all pretension to principle, and join in one mighty crusade against the present administration. Our country is inundated with pamphlets, biographies, ' pictures, and song books, printed at an enormous expense, by funds which we have reason to be lieve are not wholly furnished by Americans. The fundmongers of Europe cast a wishful eye to wards the Western Hemisphere, fondly anticipat ing a change in the administration us more favor able to their aristocratic and monopolizing princi pics, and are willing to furnish millions for elec tioneering purposes if they can gain their ends in H these things, where is the democrat that can consistently with his duty to his country, re main idle 1 Our own state tlie "young giunt of Democracy"-Crnt and decided us her sons may be in the good cause, should be active and vigilant We should be prepaicd to meet all emergencies. If our opponents use deception, trickery, orfaUc' hood, we should be prepared to meet them, nud promptly expose their machinations. We need but refer to other states to aec (heir character in its true light. In Pennsylvania after they had been defeated at the ballot box, we have seen them "treat the election as if it hud hot been held," nd march ffletn hundrtd armed men to the capilol to overawe and intimidate the ,i,.,n,w.r.ti-memlicrs of the Icaislat urn.

Oxtennd I.inrolii. tlur leoih-rs may remember that a few week ao e.e intimated to the editor of the Peoria Re gister, that, as ho had published the speech of Jude Otfle, in which the must unmeasured abuse is lic.iped upon President Van Hureti, fairness .v.iul.l rvepjire that he should let bis readers see the reply to it of Ciov. Lincoln, u whig member of Congress from Massachusetts. We considered this suggestion the more s'rtinent, as the Register had a few weeks previously, in publishing Jude Ogle's rtpecch, even expressed a willingness to give the President the full benefit of the defence set up for him in Oov. Lincoln's speech. It seems we were not alone in making this request of the edi tor of the Register, for in his last we are told that an intelligent friend" has made a similar reipii'Ht ; heri;ujM)ti ho assures his friend thut "men have strange fancies," und tells us we have "mistaken the whole tenor of Mr. Ogle's speech and of (iov. Lincoln's reputed 'reply ;' " and, "piuming thut ithcrs may have fallen into tho sanm error, he cheerfully undertakes to set them right." Now, what reason the I'.egister has for believing lit we, or his "intelligent friend," have "mistaken the whole tenor of Mr. O's speech or (Jov. L' rrply," we are unable to conjecture. For our part, wo never mentioned a word about them, ex cept in the small article quoted by the Register. I5ut "men have Htrrtiigo fancies," Ac, Wc be lieve, however, the editor of the Register is mista- en in his belief that (lov L's speech "is gravely put forth us a reply to the statement concerning tho extravagance with which the president's house is furnished," made by Mr. 0. We ulway s thought and still think, it was "put forth" "to show, (in the language of Gov. L. himself) the absurdity of the intended application" of those statements; to prove that the White House and its furniture arc the property of the nation, whose Concern it is to keep them in order, and if it provides an appro priation to furnish the house decently, or splen didly, the president would be culpable in refusing o apply the money so appropriated; to prove, in hort, that Mr. Ogle's attempt to saddle upon Pre sident Van-Duren the extravagance with which the White llouso is furnished was a complete failure. Tor this reason, therefore, because "it is," the Philadelphia Nationul Uarctto, a whig pn- per, says, "a tutirjueitWi viiuicuimii oj trie i iw dnil from umj llamt thut uwy be ullackd to him fir iKrmmil extravagance," it is "gravely put forth -audjl ia for Una reasoivwe presumeiut be of the Register, instead of complying with the request of his friend to publish Gov. Lincoln's speech, has gone to work to "net him right J" Although it i not material to the defence of President Van lluren whether a single item which Mr, Ogle has included in his list of purchases is false or not, we cannot agree with the Register that "not a sinylo one has been disproved." We believe it hus been satisfactorily proved, that Mr. Lincoln was correct in suying that tho "famous linner set of gold" was purchased by Mr. Mo.iroe while minister to France, and were ufterwards ta ken by the government on his election to the pre sidency. It appears, too, that theso marvellous gold spoons, knivo furks, iSic, were but silver gild- ' The French chairs, too, wcro purchased by Mr. Monroe, and their "repairing und covering," or which the President is so roughly handled, onsisted in having tho imperial ennvn of Napo leon, for whora they wero originally made, taken off, and the stars of our country substituted in their stead. The "French bedsteads," ulso, it happens. were made in the United States, and were only French in name. " French nmhogony" exists on ly in the imagination of Mr. Ogle, for no such wood ever grew in France. We Inl'ieve that many similar misstatements might be pointed out in this famous sicei h, if any one chose to under take the task ; hut as it is upon the whole a very "small business," we presume no one will ever put hiuiiH'lf to any trouble on its account. , l Rplle t'onnlT against the Stole I Large Mask Mtluii.Nt.

We doubt whether the democratic party in this country ever stood, at any period of its existence, in more favorable contrast with ils adversaries than at the present moment. Whether we look tit principles and measures proclaimed, the candidates nominated, or the tnelhoda by which they arc recommended to tho people, the ad vantage is immensely on the side of the democratic parly. It is true that the essential difference between the two parties, in regard to prin ciples and measures, has always been the sanic the policy of one party has been to accumulate power, privilege and lnllvt- enco in a few hands', and the aim of the other has been to prevent and dissipate this accumulation. Hut the late commer cial embarrassments have greatly aided the spread of democratic opinion?, and showed the mischief of that system of special and officious legislation upheld by the anti-deiiiocralte party. 1 he latal re action of that system has chastised men into juster views of things. It has both purified the democratic party, . among whom were recently a largo class that ol fered incense to the idols of our enemies and it has made the whig party, us it styles itself, ashamed to avow its doctrines or disclose its intentions. 1 here never was a time when democratic principles wero maintained in this country, in more purltyt with greater precision, and with inoro boldness than at the present mo otent. ..There ncver ,was a time when tho whigs were more embarrassed to defend their own doctrines, or to npolo- gize for .the measures of public policy which tl.py have all ulong proposed nm urged. 4 Tncy have resorted to the expe diency of dropping these subjects" iutil after the flection of President, "fcceptug them in reserve from a criwciousnesa of their odiousness . and unpopularity. In doing thU they have taken a course which must cool the attachment of their own ad herents. Men cannot feel any enthusi asm for a party which lias no declared object, and concealment will always beget distrust and urtci"n. - ; : ; differences between the two parties exist. The democratic candidate is it inun of de cided opinions, completely identified with the public policy of the democratic party, the representatives of thoe, who hold to the simplest possible maxims of srovern inent, to the least possible interference of law with the occupations of men. His competitor is a man whoso principal pe culiarity is thut he refuses to profess any political opinions ami asks the people el the United Slates to take him on trust, without the least previous security for what he will do if elected. JIc and his friends arc modest enough to exjiect that the people of the United States are ready upon their simple request, to take a leap into the dark without knowing where thev will alight. It is not necessary to take much trouble to show that this expecta tion is a very absurd one. Again, as to the modes which the two parties have taken to recommend them selves to the favor of the people, the dif ference is equally striking. The demo cratic party appeal to the reason and ge neral interest of the community. Whe ther this be the c fleet of a higher degree of virtue, or whether -it be the efl't?ct of .sheer necessity, it w hardly worth while jo pjiquirc; it is enough that the fact is so. parly, we admit, is compelled to take t.'iis course.

The St. Augustine News of the 21st tilt, gives tho following detail of recent outrages committed by the Indians : On tho 12th inst. two men were fired upon at Hope's, seven miles from Mi canopy, and Smart killed, and Lerien badly wounded in both his leg. Shortly after, the Indians made their appearance at Fort Crane, carrying off corn lrom the fields, and It ring at two of the citizens, wounding both of their hor ses. The men escaped.

A murder of four persons named Coscy, took place, by Indians, at New River, on Tuesday, the 1 1 tit inst. near 'Pigpen's station.

Here often lies the mystery of tho contagiousness of disease. A celebrated English physician, (Dr Smith on fever) says that the room of a fever-patient in a small and heated apart ment, in a populous city, with no circula tiott of fresh air, is pcrfccUv anaWous to burning sun, her still and pent up wind, her stagnant and teeming marsh, manu factures plague, on a large and fearful scale ; poverty in her hut, covered with rags, surrounded with tilth, striving with all her might to keep out the pure air, and to increase the heat, imitates nature but too successfully.

The correspondent of the Philadelphia Ledger, writing from Cape May, gives the following as a night or rather inoruinr scene in the main gallery of a hotel there. The only thing we cannot under stand is, how the correspondent happened to be awake at such a time. We recom mend the husband to provide himself with a duplicate key : (Tap! tap! tap! in a low nnd gentle lone.) (No answer.) (Tap! tap! tap! a little louder.) (.Still no answer.) (Tap ! tap ! tap ! a full octave higher.) "Who's there J" (in a loud, and 1 thought, for a female, a very determind voice.) "Only me,, my love ;" (in a soothing loud whisper, rather strongly contrasted with the voice from within.) "Well, Mr. T , this is too much; but I vow I won't get up." , "My dear, do pray rise and let me in." "I positively will not. I gave you fair warning I would not thus be disturbed every night. The children, you know very well, can't be got to sleep after thev are once woke up." (I could testify to the truth of this part of the conversation.) "And this is the fourth night you have beeiuupJialf thenightrplay4t:g -eards-and stuffing crabs and champagne. 'Tis too bad." My love, recollect 5 do for heaven's sake keep quiet, and let me in j this is all d d nonsense. I mean this is per fectly ridiculous. Just remember where you are, and talk lower ; I'm not deaf." (After a pause ) "My dear, there's no earthly use in your standing there. You ought to know by this time that when I say I won't I mean I won't ; and get out of bed this night I won't that's settled." And to my mind the case was clearly settled the tone this was uttered in leav ing little room for hope. Alter a consid erable pause, during which lime the poor hen-pecked husband, no doubt, was cast ing over his mind what was best lo be done in the emergency "My love, do I rightly understand that you really intend I shall he locked out ill night?" "Yes, my dear, 'tis precisely my in tention, and to-morow night you will come to bed in seasonable hours." (Scene closes.) The following morning, at sunrise, as is my custom, I was on my way, with slippers and gown, to bathe, when I met Mr. T , parading the piazza. lie never gets up till the last breakfast bell rings. "Hood morning, Mr. T . Why, this is reformation. How came you up so soon r "Why, the fact is ha ! ha ! ha ! to be candid with you the the truth is, am up a little earlier than common.
