Uroadway, was crowdedwith Democrats,
on Tuesdaj evening, January 13th, anxious
to listen to an address by S. S. Cox, Rep

were seated a number of prominent Dem-

new alliances among the States and fresh

Western man opposing all schemes of di
vision still opposing them but I speak
to warn. The erection of the Mississippi
States into a republic standing on its re
sources besought by South and East
choosing for itself its own cheapest,-best
outlets to the ocean and markets of the
world is no dream. It is tne tarn oi every
other Western man. Western nidi fall
into the scheme with a facility shocking
to the olden sense of nationality. I speak
of these schemes only to disapprove and
to warn ; as in 1861 iu my place in Con
gress, I warned of similar schemes of di
vision. Cheers Governor Seymour
- great cheers means much and well when
he says the Western and .Uentrai States
desire to stand in the Union protected by
all the muniments of the Constitution.
They will in time restore that Union let
New England do as she please, a voice,
"Let her slide. I hey do not intend to
desert the ship but they do not intend

unhappily be made without her. I warn
and entreat the Democratic young men

cheering, and a voice, "We've had enough

But these abuses may be remedied by a
new Congress. They would be borne, but
' unhappily they are associated with an
element harder to master Puritanism.

- It is not smart to be informed on one side
of a question. It is not smart to array
the Union against itself. It is not smart
to build factories and destroy the source
of cotton which runs them. .Her schemes
.of emancipation her Morrill tariffs her
propagandism of higher law are not
smart in any sense of wisdom.
I do not impeach a whole people for the
. errors of a part. In Colonial time an En

later times Webster stands like a granite
" Applause. I would not confound the
Parkers and Phillipses and the lesser
spawn of transcendentalism with the
Choates and Curtises, who have cultivated
the graces of civil order. I speak of that
.ruling element in New England, called
Puritanistu, which in Lancashire, in Hol
land, at Plymouth or at Boston, ever pre
sents the same selfish, pharisaical, egotistic
and intolerant type of character.; We
find it in our politics to-day as the Tudors
found it hundreds of years ago, ever med
dling, and only willing to' concede when it
cannot help itself. Cheers. Their key
note is that slavery is. the cause of this
war, and must be extirpated. The truth
is, that slavery was meddled with and re
turned in violence what was given in
wrath and malice. But it does not thence
follow that slavery wa3 the cause of the
violence; The doctrine of the French so
cialist that property is a robbery and
therefore should be abolished, is a sample
of the same fallacy.. : Abolition is, in the
moral sense, the cause of this war. t
Cheers. It is the offspring of Puritan.:
ism. The' history of Puritanism shows
that it always sought to introduce the mor
al elements involved in slavery into poll
tics, and thereby threw the Church into
the arena of politics, made it a wrangler
about human institutions, divided churches
aud begat ' sectional asperities. Perhaps
Wendell Phillips might not be considered
by some as a representative of the Repub
lican party. But he does truly represent
the Administration, with its proclamation
of liberty. -Look at the votesin Congresa
on a motion of the speaker to lay on the
tabic a resolution by Thaddeus Stevens
hisses to raise 150,000 negroes. Hiss
es. . Why,- one would judge from that
that the white race in this country, like
the Yankees calf, was ''pretty nearly gin
eout." Great laughter ; a voice "They
want to get the niggtfrs cheap, so that they
won't have the trouble to colonize them."
I cannot sec any special difference between
the Republicanism that sustains emanci
pation proclamations and the real old
genuine Congo Abolitionism. Cheers.
They are two separate links of the same
sausage made out of the same dog. Great
and continued applause.
These extracts were the germ of that
Abolition power now overshadowing us.
The influence invoked by these men was
the religious seutimeu t in a crusade against
slavery. This same tendency to make
Government a moral reform society is
.observable in the laws punishing Quakers,
against smokiug tobacco, against making
mince pies and walking in agarden on a
Sunday. Laughter. The Maine liquor
laws aud tax laws against whisky to stop
its use, came from the same Puritan ten
dency to mix politics and morals, to the
detriment of both. The same thing is
observable in the opinion of a Boston law
yer, now the counsel of the War Depart
ment, Mr. Whiting, who upholds the
"right of jjovernment to interfere with
slavery, Mormonism, or any other institu
tion, condition, or social status into which
the subjects of the United States can en
ter." Under this doctrine proclamations
against slavery are issued. . Kather than
yield this censorship over the morals of
the nation, new England welcomed war.
"That's so !" It is not the first time
she has convulsed the nation for her dog
mas. : She did it iu 1798. Mr. Cox quo
ted Dr. Lord to illustrate the tendency of
Puritanism to reduce God to a subservi
ency to its preconceived idsas, which, he
said were, tho cause of our disorders.
The moral balance was deranged between
Church and State upon the slavery ques
tion. In illustration of these truths, Mr.
Cox said : "Every Sabbath you have a
sermon from Dr. Cheever, demonstrating
that our failures in battle are owiug to
the pleasures of God, because of the sin
of slavery. He forgets that when we are
beaten we are beaten by slaveholders, and
that God, by his foolish logic, must be a
pro slavery being. The same sort of doc
trine was announced by Massachusetts in
1676, wheu Randolph came to New Eng
land from the parent Government to find
out the cause of the Indian wars. They
solemnly announced that they were a pun
ishment from God, because the men wore
periwigs made of womeu's hair, and the
women wore borders iu. their hair also
for profancness in the people not frequent
ing the meetings, and others going away
before the blessing is pronounced! Laugh
ter. . The original defects of the Puritan
pattern are copied by the present stock.
Mr. Cox quoted from history to show how,
under the plea of military necessity, the
saints robbed the Indians of their lands.
He proved that the Puritans persecuted
all who differed from them, even those of
the Church of England, although when
they left England they called it their "dear
mother Church." How they inaugurated
the spy system in their midst; how they
hunted out little girls and old women for
witches ; how Baptists Anabaptists, Fanii
lists, Quakers, all were . persecuted and
punished ;, how the Indians were trans
formed into sooty devils, to confiscate their
lands; how Roger Williams, Mrs. Hutch
inson, Coddington and others wern treat
ed and exiled ; how every petty presbyter
was made a Pope, every village Paul Pry
an inquisitor, and every female communi
cant a spy for the detection of the eighty
two heresies denounced by the Boston
Synod ; hisses, all these were brought
forward as illustrative of this amiable
character. Murders, maimings and cru
elties worse than those of the pit were in
flicted by these men, not alone upon each
other, but upon the Indian aud the peace
ful people of Arcadia. Halleck, a New
England poet, in vain ransacked history
for worse crimes than those committed by
the saints iu peaked hat and ruff. Herod
was bad. Worse were
The fiends of France, whose cruelties decreed
Those dexterous drownings in the Loire and
Rhine. ' '
Were at their worst but copyists, second hand,
Of our shrined, "sainted sires the Plymouth
Mr. Cox paid New England a compli
ment for her revolutionery resistance ; but
non constat, she . would have resisted a
government of angels. ' He considered
the boast that the Pilgrims were the au
thors of democratic liberty here as utter
ly groundless, proving it from history.
The compact of the Mayflower was forced
from the Pilgrim leaders. Elliott, the
his tonkin, says they did not mean a dem
ocracy. No man could be a voter uflless a
member of the church, and Judge Story
says this disfranchised five-sixths of the
people. The penal laws, were framed from
the Geotoo code. They punished accord
ing to caste. " 'Such was therule too, in
Harvard College. New England yet has
her Brahmin and 'her Sootee caste. ' The
laws even regulated the apparel of men
and women, on the Gentoo caste princple.
Years of contests for the rights of the
people against the magistrates and church
leaders eventuated at last in the final eman
cipation of the people by the act of the
King of England, Charles II. Under the
oligarchic rule of the church fearful de-
moralization resulted. In trying to make
the church political they did - not make
the State religious. Is this the civiliza
tion to be commended to us now in our
trials? - It comes with no grace to the
West, at least. What -has she done for
the West? Governor Andrew boasts
greatly; let us see ! It has sent us such
men as Douglas; Seymour and McClellan.
Great cheering, . '"Three cheers for Mc
Clellan." As to New York, men of lib
eral mind but liberal because they have
repudiated Puritan teaching. . Cheers.
It gave Samuel Adams for the revolution
Choate for counsel against sectionalism;
Breene and Stark in war, but neither of
Puritan! principles. It gave us Arnold in
the revolution, General Hull for the late.:
war, and General Butler Qa voice, "Old

voted against Jefferson and Jackson at
first against the acquisition of Louisiana.
It thundered against those who "differed
in doctrine" three hundred years ago.; and
its echo is reproduced at New Orleans, in
the order from that precious saint, Butler,
to close the churches because the ministry
do not pray according to Butler's direc-
tions. Hisses and goans. It stole the
land of the Pequods, just as now it slips
through our lines to dicker in Secession
cotton, and it will sanction it through the
same goodly doctrine. Instead of making
the church the tomb it made it the theater
of dissension into the Stated Its litera
ture was ever vain-glorious. It has gained
much in style of late, but it has lost more,
in sincerity. It yet, as of yore, compla
cently assumes to be a part of the God
head. Applause. Its hJrshness made
dissent upon dissent, until, through vari
ous isms, it has reached infidelity. It is
not content with the order of Providence.
It must drive the charioto f the sun, and
with what result the civil war show3. A
voice, "that's so." Its peculiar civilizi
tion is the parent of Abolition which
found in the Puritan soil the right spot
for its bad seed. Therefore it flourished
to the overthrow of civil liberty, by inter
meddling with State institutions and social
systems, entirely alien to itself under tie
Constitution. Holding to the higher law
and obtaining office under its banner, it
spread distrust and apprehension of its
excesses among one half of -the States,
and rash and unjustifiable revolution was
the consequence.' It rallied all its isms to
one focus abolitionism and became ag
gressive.. It has tried to imitate the clas
sic sorceress by giving a new youth and
beauty to the state by dismembering it. r
Applause. It has substituted a panthe-'
ism or platonisu&v -religion, and'Stttik in
it that docility ' which is childlike Snd
Christian. At the New England dintier
here Beecher boasted that the Yankee was
the most prying, meddlesome creature in
the world the- pickpocket of creation
the born radical of civilization '-the head
in the body of the Union, etc. Hisses.
This is the old egotism. It is this claim
of all the intelligence and conscience
which comes from Boston and is copied in
Brooklyn which has beeu sung by the
Puritan for three hundred ysars through
his own nasal organ in his own praise.
Great cheering and laughter. Its source
is from Hindostan. It is even a bad ex
aggeration of the Colonial Puritanism.
It comes from the coterie of transcenden
talism around Boston, ... whose most clever
exponent is Emerson. It has its priests,
high and low; from the great Chauning,
who ministered in holy things with mauy
enlarged graces of nature, to the little
Channiug, who creeps of Sundays into the
Senate Chamber at Washington, to preach
abolition and vilify Democracy. ; But this
transcendentalism is stolen by this uni
versal pickpocket from the Vedas Emer
son, Parker, - Phillips, Alcott, only copy
the Brahmins. Their doctrines are not
strictly materialism or pantheism ; great
laughter but they absorb God and nature
in man, and make the soul all in all. One
of their philosophers holds himself per
sonally responsible for the obliquity of the
earth's axis ; and of course for air other
obliquities, slavery included. Emerson
holds that he is God. God is everything;
ergo, he (Emerson) is everything. Great
merriment. Do you wonder, therefore,
that he makes the negro a part of himself
and his equal? Increased laughter.
The Hindoo said, "Rich is that universal
self which thou worshipest as the soul."
Emerson says, "Nothing is if th.oij a.rt not;
thou art under, over all ; thou dost hold
and cover all ; thou art Atlas; thou art
Jove." The Sanscrit has the . most per
feet description of this idcalogisljc Yan
kee :. "I am generation ; I am dissolu
tion ; . I am death and immortality; I am
entity and nonentity. . Among mountains
I am Himalay ; ". among floods the ocean ;
among elephants the everlasting. Kg ele
phant !" Great laughter.., j'he Brah
min of Boston attains to such excellence,
for he follows the direction of the Vedas
and contemplates heaven by squinting like
Butler laughter, with both eyes at the
tip of his own nose. ; Continued merri
ment. By such processes of unification
they proved black and white to be "all
one thing." The speaker then deduced
from this the infidelity of Parker the
skepticism which such a philosophy has
introduced. Having traced all these Pu
ritan elements which have fomented trou
ble, he followed its course in a political
point, of view from 1787 till now. " It ever
sought to centralize and encroach upon
others. When called upon to make sac
rifices, as in the wars of this" country, she
has been laggard and loth to ruake them.
There are nojj 19,000 deserters from the
Massachusetts troops. She forgot in 1812
her hatred of State- rights, when the Gov
ernor of Massachusettsrefused troops to
Madison agftinst Enghvnd. She fostered
secession in the Hartford Convention, and
dissension when Texas was admitted. She
discouraged the war with Mexico by pas
quinade and pulpit. Her day of reckon
ing howeerj.-has- comeJShe will not be
thrust out of .the. Union, but she will be
humiliated in it. ," Already her proclama
tions, running counter to the-popular sen
timent, 'have produced a paralysis of, the
State.'i.: ',' '-:;','i'.: '
Where,' then, is their relief in war?
War has been called a wholsale grave dig
ger who works for wages. ' :Wages may
bring New England to her senses. What
Wages ? 'A quarter of a million of North
ern -not to count Southern men perish
ed ' already. Fortunes totter, . industry
palsied, bankruptcy soon to follow this riot
in speculation. ; Such war, with the gib-
bering abolition fiend behind it, produces
ho' Union , It is not intended to produce
Union unless slavery dies.". But it is de-"
termined to prevent the Democracy from
restoring the Union, , by making division
eternal. But, by the God of our fathers !
though these States may be torn apart
temporarily ' by the extremists, the Dem
ocracy, if it takes a lustrum to do it, will
never cease to labor until the old Govern,
ment and Union is ours again. : Tremen
dous cheering ; threa cheers for the speak
er three cheers for Ohio. Let the Mid
dle and Western and Border States stand
firm. The dissonant din of these idealo
gists of New England will be drowned in
the popular voice; the fratricidal hate
they have engendered will be assuaged,
and into the lacerated bosom of this na
tion will be poured the hallowed and heal
ing spirit of mutual confidence-and concil
iation. . Thus will the nation reform itself.
Tremendous and continued applause.
... Coming to grief Some of the vile
tools of tyranny are already coming

Thirteen years residence and uninterrupted
practice in my profession in California, has ena
bled me to thoroughly perfect myself in the
proper treatment and cure of diseases in this
climate ; the ooncurrence of all reliable testimo
ny going to show that practice on the Pacific
requires very material modifications ol the old
stereotyped formnlas hitherto pursued in the
. Like all other sciences the practice of the
Medical profession is progressive in its character,
and I deem it the proper time that some of the
profession should manifest courage enough to
break through and assault the old barriers and
prejudices of the prescribed laws and rules that
have hitherto fettered the advancement of medi
cal science, hanging, incubus-like, over its de
velopments, and give our patients the unrestrict
ed benefit of all that is good and useful in all
the PATHYS under the names of HYDRO
PATHY, ALLOPATHY, HOMEOPATHY,
ELECTROPATHY, or any other name. I have
given serious attention to all of them, and find
much that is good in each. AVith a little com
mon sense combined, I have found mcst admi
rable results emanating from my treatment of
disease peculiar in their developments on the
It is not without mature deliberation that I
have taken this step of advertising my name as
a Doctor of "Specialities." I know full well
that I shall meet with the '-cold shoulder" per
haps with the frowns and chagrin, of my old as
sociates in the profession. Be it so, I am satis
fied that I am right, and take an unprejudiced
and liberal view of the whole matter from this
stand point, and knowing that I am right, I shall
not be easily intimidated from , my purpose.
One thing may be assured, I shall do nothing
that is ungentlemanly or unbecoming the profession-.
With-this statement,-1 -shall leave my
professions in the hands of a discriminating
public. - .
It is the first time in my long practice that I
have evpr advertised my profession through the
medium of a circular, and have only consented
to do so now after years of persuasion by nu
merous friends, and the thorough conviction of
its nroprietv. Having weighed the subject pro
and eon, there is nothing to be discovered but
fair and honorable justification in advertising my
name and business. My aim is, and always has
been, to "guarantee" nothing but what I think
myself competent to perform ; and there is no
class of maladies under the head of CHRONIC
or S PECIFIC diseases, as it has presented itself
in California that I have not thoroughly and ef
fectually cured even when there was scarcely
life enough left to build a hope upon.
EF- DR. DEMAREST, as is well known,
has always been a friend to suffering humanity
a fact that hundreds can testify to, who have
known me through thirteen years' practice here.
My charges are always exceedingly moderate,
and my treatment has uniformly given satisfac
tion. My intention is to devote myself more es
pecially to office practice and consultations.
This is quite enough for one man to do. - -
- With an experience of twenty years practice,
endorsed by a large number of patients, I com
mit myself to the public for their approval.
Seek advice in time, and place confidence in
no one unless you have previously made inqui
ries in regard to his skill and standing in his
profession. All advertising physicians are not
to be trusted ; and so far as I am concerned, I
hope you will fully convince yourself ofmy
standing before engaging my services. I am
well known in this community, but strangers
throughout the country having been so often de
ceived, it will be a difficult matter I know, to
convince them ; therefore, I say, convince your
self before you call.
My office is easily found Southeast corner of
Washington and Sansome streets nearly oppo
site the Post Oflice, over Ullman's Book Store.
Below will be found a few of the testimonials
received by Dr. Demarest previous to his leav
ing home for this country in 1840:
- New York, Jan. 14, 1848.
. This may certify that Dr. J. D. Demarest, by
the assiduity and attention which he has given
to his studies, and his uniformly good conduct,
justifies me in believing that those among whom
he may be placed, can repose conndence in nis

This may certify that Dr. J. D. Demarest has
been in my office for tome time past, and has
attended a number of my patients for me, with
perfect satisfaction both to himself and them. I
therefore take pleasure iu recommending him to
any person or persons requiring medical service.
I can also speak highly of hU maral, as well
a3 his professional character,
