NO. 15 would have found the book. It might have laid there a hundred years." The mothcrstood for a while in silent as-| tonishment, and then said—r"Oh ! my child, it was God's doings. I feel a thrill of awe and reverence when I reflect upon it. Look ! as we both prayed and wept, there came the sparkling fire-fly, and pointed out the spot where this book was concealed. Yes truly 1 God's hand ia in all things however trifling. Nothing comes by chance. Even the hairs of our head are numbered; not one of them falls to the ground without his knowledge. Remember this for thy life long, and put thy trust in him especially in the time of need. It is easy for him to aid and to save. He does not need to send a shining angel to us. He can send us help by a winged insect!" The mother could not sleep that night for joy. Soon after break of day, she took her way to the Judge, who at once sent for the heir. He came. He acknowledged the writing as genuine, and was much asshamed of having sl...

Of course they had, and the men of the patties which ihey selcc-!e .', had an equal right to cat loose from their former party o/ganizution. The men who left the Know-Nothing- party when it was in ihe first flush of its power, when the "eminent lawyer'" and the junior were swelling Use toads with their o«n wind and fury—the men who left Know-Nsihingism then, left ihe order because they were dissatisfied with its principles—but when the "eminent" and the junior of the organ left that parly, they were satisfied that Know-Nothingisra would soon become powerless, and therefore iheir chances for honor and reward considerably diminished. It is of such floating miasm! that the Democracy complain—and they have a r...

fea^The Potter Jourml is almost too anxious to have its readers believe lhal Senator Donglass is a "bad man/'' and quotes the Richmond South, the mouth piece of Ihe slave power, lo prove that the Illinois Senator is secretly allied to slavery interests. The folly of. manufacturing sen.imenls and making positions for men has been displayed before t lis allempl to do so for Senator Douglass—and whatever may be the comments of the press on this subject, it is a fact that ihe principles advocated by Senator Douglars llav h '.en endorsed by ihe ia'.o elections. We repeat again, that- Republicanism, although ils Congressional candidates were elected in this a ul other stales, owes lis succss to the inda. pendetice, boldness and ability of the gallant Senator from Illinois. For the compliments ul' the Journal, we are of course grateful, snd shall endeavor to continue lo merit them.

Wasafc are its WrirlWI We have more than once asked ourselves the question which forms the caption of this article, vlieh-con'emplating the. course ol politics in Pennsylvania for the last twelve year?.

As a state, this Commonwealth, has almost bssn neglected in the distribution of national legislative benefit., and yet her position is glorious. The interests which bind her wealth to the soil, have not only been neglected, but shamefully thrown upon the mercy of foreion competition. • And, yet, tha old Keystone Slate is scarcely second to any in the Union —wbrn ieal wealth is counted, and when hn'uesl labor is estimated at its true value. The history of national legislation adds noihing lo the greatness of this Stale, save when Her sons by eloquence and argument interposed to presetvo the Union—and Pennsylvania, for ail tha ...

Witaf Is ©csHocracy I Thomas Jefferson defined his Democracy when he declared hostility to every form of lyrany over the mihd of man. By this he was willing to yield to every man a free exercise of thought, a full expression; of opinion, and the advocacy of such doctrins as tho advocate believed would promote the interests of the people. The liberal concession? and enlarged views of Jefferson have been curtailed by modern preachers of Democracy, aud instead of allowing ihe exercise of thought, on the expression of.opinion, tha people of this country and age are boldly informed that the standard of demoe racy consists in, and is measure:! by a devotion lo administralions. Wc are informed lhal ihe President can do no .wrong, that Governors are beyond impeachment, and that Senators and Representatives become immaculate by^inauguration—provided they belong to the Democratic party The advocacy and es tablishment of ptiriciple have nothing to do with the consolidation of party po.ver, a...

We have fixed both the' organ and the clique to the wall, and all it can now do, is to wiithe and snort, and snort and writhe, and then call ils fnry a defence. When it meets fair issues, we are ready to meet it in fair discussion—but we are not willing to pollute our columns either wilh personalities or vile allusions lo charade'. The Junior, however, cannot intimidate us in regard to affidavits. It shows bis natural instincts for mischief and meanness, thus to refer to the past private character of any manbecause all men have their pasls aud fewthere are who live but do not refer to their pasts with regret.

r^Ths Juni'ir of the Organ does not meet the Junior of the Press, in anything like a denii'l or an explanation of what we have placed to his charge, although he partially admits that he.was a Know-Nothing—but tha! he was deceived and betrayed into the order. This is rather a hard thrust at his friend Livingston, who introduced him to Sarr But, Barnhart was a" Know-Notbing—and more than lhat, he implored a nomination at Iheir hands, after be was nominated: by the Democracy. Because lie did not receive that, Smith left the order—and because he was defeated, he turned" his leeth on principles which he swore to- Misiain.

EP*The Legislature of Souih Carolina succeeded in electing a United Slates Senator, in the person of the Hon. James Chestnut, president of the Siate Senate. This election is a signal triumph to tha Conservatives in the Legislature, and is believed to have been brought about through.- :he influence cf Senator Hammond, who was in Columbia at the time of ihe election. Ten ballots were had in all, in the last of which Chestnu! received 92 voles, and Adams, (the slave trade advocale,)54. By'Occasional," the Washington Correspondent of the Philadelphia Press has written his last letter, and the announcement will cause, no small regret. Whoever be may be, his le'.lers will long be remembered, for their bold, terse, and reliable character, refreshing qualities certainly when we consider the usually exaggerated statements generally published as "Washington Correspondence.'"' The administration will certainly feel easier during "Occasionals," silence, but truth and the country must be the...
