What tho Administration has done.
If the history of the parties which have at
successive periods opposed the democracy of
this country be scanned, it will be difficult to
detect any practical good to the country which
has resulted from their labors and agitations
Its a history of incessant struggle, barren of
result. Not a single measure has been estab
lished by them as a part of the permanent poli
cy -of the country; not a single monument has
Wen erected in the whole field of our politics to
(proclaim the wisdom or the success of their la
bors. Especially has this been the case in the
last ten years. Since the close of the Mexican
nvar, the entire talents and energies of the op
iposition have been expended in the agitation
of the slavery question; and it would insult the
intelligence of the country to ask, in serious ear
nest, if the least good has been accomplished.
Of all the barren efforts that have ever
been made by capable and intelligent men,
those of the party who have devoted their en
ergies to the agitation of the slave Question for
te i years past, have been the most fruitless and

government, iso great was his reputation
abroad as a statesmen and diploniatist,hnt the
British'cabinet. met his demand for the re
linquishment of that claim with the frankness
of ministers having con6dence iu the candor
and integrity of the government with whom
they were dealing. It Mr. Buchanan had not
been well known with the, British cabinet as a
man of probity and anrightuegs of character,
we doubt if they would have been half so un
hesitating, prompt, or unequivocal in acceding
to his demands. And we think the country
owes to the high personal character which Mr.
Buchanan had established at the court of St.
James, more than to any other cause, the early'
and satisfactory settlement ot a -controversy
which had subsisted between the two gov
ernments tinea the first day that Iheir
diplomatic relations had commenced. i
The confidence of the people in the capacity, '
experience and character of Mr. Buchanan was
great before his administration began. 'His
settlement of four of the most difficult and
delicate questions which have ever arisen in
the history of the country, has made this
confidence universal among his countrymen and
established it upon a firm and impregnable
basis. Politicians may vilify and assail him;
the country may be made to ring from one end

him; but the confidence of the people in him
will manifest itself whenever it. is tested, in

S'ir Thomas Rrowne, I think, relates that
Iiefore the extinction of villenage ia England,
when a man came to die his holy confessor
wouid advise him to emancipate his villiens;
and that thus in time the exhortations of priests
operating upon the superstition and fears of
dy ing men, did away with slavery ; yet. he re
marks, the ecclesiastics did not free their vil
liens, because, forsooth, they thought it wrong
to impoverish holy church! So it appears that
death-bed generosity of men who. probably had
shown no generositj' at any other time uor
place in life, gradually restored the liberty of
the English villiens. Well, if thus gradually
and peacefully and happily we get rid of a
dangerous element and an exciting question,
where and what is the objection? There are
objectloi.s, good objections, even to that; hat
the mischief is that it is totally impossible for
us to emancipate our slaves so. Consider what
human nature is; the abolition feeling; the past;
the present. Consider all the circumstances of
the case. Now, encourage, or even allow these
bequests of freedom and the like, and the result
is that we are forced suddenly and disastrously
to aliolish slavery, or else we have a horrible
insurrection upon us One or the other is then
inevitable. We remain careless, private eman
cipation increases in practice and favor, slavery
is shorn of its strength, our Noi tbem foes en
couraged and incited to redoubled efforts, our
slaves -are excited by what is passing, are eager,
auxious. niad, revengeful; and theu ! Alas!
matters may be beyond our 'Control ere long.

Selling Dry Goods.
It is really amusing sometimes to witness a
salesman waiting on a customer, especially if tbe
customer happens to be a ' hard case," then nil
the ready wit that he is master of is called mto
requisition, to effeitthe sale of the article iu
i question. Happening in a Dry Good store in
tne neighborhood of Hie Market House a few
davs since, to rae gome pureha es, and while'
making mv purchases a Gent from the "rural '
parts" walked in, and was met by Mr A one of
the salesmen, who politely offered to show him
thr at-t,-lr ho wkWH to nmelHiCA
Customer. "Got any coats?"
Mr A. "Yes sir this way sir Linnen,
Cloth, muslin or what kind sir?"
Customer. "Well, 1 guess I'll look at some
Mr A. "Cloth ones, yes 6ir, here they are"
He pulls down a lot of them, of which the
quality suits, iwt experiences some difficulty in
getting a fit". At last gets one :
hat be "knows
will fit," trie's it on him, but proves to
or three numbers too small.
Customer "Too small sir twont do sir."
Mr A. O my dear sir, that's a matter of
moonshine, it will stretch plenty large after a
little wearing, see here sir, its just the thing."
Places his knee against the customers coporosi
ty and presses it in, while he succeeds in 'but
toning' one button, he takes his kuee away when
"pop" goes the buttoa.
Customer. (Placing his hands where the
knee was, with a ughl)
" 7wout do sir too small, got any largver?"
Mr A. O yes fit yoa this time certat"
Tries another on him which proves to be as
many sizes too laige, as the other was too small.
Mr A. "There sir, that8 the coat certain,
you can button that easy -enough, and fits you
Customer. "Yes, ean button it, a darned
sight too easy, too big sir, got any between
Mr A "O but thot will shrink. Sorry to
say sir, we have not, but will show you some
cloth to make you one sir."
Customer "Let's see it theu"
He shows him some that he pronounces A

Customer. ' Cotton hi this goods sir, don't
want it. Mr A. "Very little sir. In shering
the sheep, they had to drive them through a
cotton patch to the place wheie they shear them
and that is the way the cot Lou got mixed with

THE NEW PARTY.
The Washington correspondent of the New
London (Conn.) Star pointedly remarks:
A few months have only elapsed, and we see
a call in the black-republican mid know-nothing
papers for the organizhtion of a new party, or a
reconstruction of parties.
The old coon is alive once more. Abolition-
ists must be made to assume a new guiRe
people most be ctjoled in some way or another,
and hence the opposition have conceived the
novel idea of a "People's party." They, have
i this, they fondly hope, found the talisman
which will carry them triumphantly forward
into power and office. The history of the op
position, no matter what names ihey have as
sumed, has shown thatcfEce is the goal towards
which all their ambitions hopes centered; and
when, through any disaffection in t he democrat
ic ranks, the opposition have triumphed, ihey
have as invariably abused the powers confided
. i i. i. . t i i .
to i neiu uy me peopie, ana oy tne people as
suddenly been hurled from the station they had
cognize the scattered elements of aboli-
eminent; and t bis is necessary," he adds, "to
close the circle of our felicities."
The Political Prospect in Indiana. A
prominent Democrat, who was in our office yes
terday, brings us pood news from our sister
State. He enjoys a pood opportunity of being
well informed, and is thoroughly acquainted
with the political movements that are on the
tapis, and the elements that vil! enter into the
ensningr contest. He is sanguine from all that
he can learn, and fiom the present nppeiirniice
of things,. that the Democratic State ticket
will be eiecte l by a larger majority than it was
in 1856, and that we shall choice quite as many
members of Congress as we did then. There
is an excellent chance of superseding the
l-epul 1 can member of Congress in the Eighth
District by a Democrat. Davis, the remgi.de
Democrat, who is running against Secret for
Contrress, in the Seventh District, he is
confident will be badly beater. Ilovty will
share the same fate in the First Distrht.
English will, doubtless, be renominated and
reelected; and also Hughes, in the third,
despite the desperate efforts which are being
made to defeat him. The Indiana Democracy
are aroused, and are preparing to give a good
