Are »c«> j the ere of another attempted rvv>!;i- tion, tint will have for its r< *ult a a change in all the fundamental prin »ij• le~ ufoiir Government? —a chung® which is intended to remove the bars and obstructions which the framers of the Constitution thought necessary to throw in the way of the different departments ol the Federal Government, to prevent usurpation and centralization of power? A change which will effectually eradi cate all the results of the great fun damental principles, whose motive actuated the patriots of 1776. A change that will turn the represen-. tative republican system of govern ment, of which we have so proudly boasted, into a despotic, centralized oligarchy. A change that will tear down the noble superstructure of our political fabric, which has taken the good and great, the nation's best, a century to raise. . A change which will give the Ho to our proud and oft-repeated boast that we are a great, free, contented people. Where is the man who reads the public jour nals, and notes the tendency of our national politics, as it is now being shaped by the dominant party iu Congress, but who is convinced that these tendencies are towards central ization and despotism. He is not to be found, except among those whose minda are blinded by fanaticism or prejudiced by private interests. That vre may the more fully under stand this tendency of Congress to centralization, we have but to glance at the outliues upon which our gov ernment is founded. The Government of the United States consists of three branches, one acting as a check upon another, and the third branch as a balance to the action of the other two. Congress, in both its branches, is the direst representative of the section or State from which the members thereof de rive their electiou—the House of Representatives more direct than the Senate, for being elected for the term of two years and from particu lar "district*, tbey are the exponent* of the local interest* of each particu lar section* f*u«h iuttmb enter larjreli into the* election*, ai.

A LABOR SAVING MACHINE. —We have received the agency for "Doty' a Clothes Washer," one of the most essential labor-saving machines of the day,dispensing as it does with the most laborious duties of household life. With this machine, the week's washing can bo done iu two or three hours, equally as well, if not better, than by hand,-without an expendi tiue of both strength aud patience, nor a recurrence of that dreaded ' l bhie Monday"—washing day. We have Doty's Clothes Washer in use, and know whereof we speak. For further paticulars, read the advertia ment published elsewhere in this pa per.
