THE HUNTECGDON GLOBE, A DEMOCRATIC FA.MILY 'JOURNAL = DEVOTED TO LOCAL AND GEN KRAL NEWS, &G
from the city of Philadelphia, for the pur
poses and upon the terms and conditions
contained in the ordinance; and that the
sum of $30,000 00 be appropriated for tilt
erection of a State arsenal thereon.
On the 6th day of October, 1855, I ap
proved and signed a bill, entitled "An
Act to repeal the charter of the Erie and
North East railroad company, and to pro
vide for the disposal of the same." In
pursuance of its provisions, Hon. Joseph
Casey was appointed to take possession
and have the charge and custody of the
road. Before possession was taken, appli
cation was made by , the company, to one
of the judges of the Supreme Court of Pa.,
for an injunction to restrain the agent of
the State from taking possession; and
subsequently% cautionary order was made
by the Supreme Court, in bane, to stay
proceedings under the, act. The questions
then pending before that court were de
termined, and the application for an in
junction refused. Possession of the road
was then taken by the agent of the State,
as directed by law.
On the twenty-second day of April,
1856, an act, entitled "An Act supple
mentary to the act_ incorporating the
Erie and North East railroad company"
was passed'. By thin act the Erie and
North East railroad, as originally located
and constructed, was legalized and eon-
firmed ; and certain changes in the road
were directed to be made, and other acts
to be clone by the company. It was also
provided .'that the Governor shall retain
possession of the Erie and North East rail
road, under the Act of the sixth of Octo
ber, 1855, until the provisions of this act
shall have been accepted by a vote of the
stockholders of the Erie and North East
railroad company, at a meeting called for
that purpose." On the fifteenth day of
May. 1856, at a meeting of the stockhold
ers called for that purpose, the provisions
of the act were accepted by their vote.—
This acceptance, duly certified, was recei
ved and filed in this Department on the 1
fifteenth day of July last. Possession of
the road has been restored, and it is now
under the care and management of the
company. A fin al account for money re
ceived from the road, whilst in possession
of the State, will be settled with the com
pany at the earliest practicable period.
It is but proper to state:that since the
acceptance of the act of the 22d of April,
1856, a writ of error, in the cases adjudi
cated by the Supreme Court of Pennsylva
nip, has been issued. at the suit of the
company by the Supreme Court of the U.
States, and is now pending in that court.
The commissioner first appointed having
resigned, A. K. McClure, -Esq., was ap
pointed in his place. 'The duties of both
officers were ably and faithfully performed.
Copies of their correspondence and reports,
herewith, submitted to the House of Rep
resentatives, for the use of the Legisla
ture. will furnish information in detail on
the subject now under consideration. It
is sincerely desired that good faith and
honesty of purpose may characterize the
conduct of this company in the discharge
of the duties assumed by their acceptance
of the act of 22d of April last, and that
this much vexed question will not again
disturb the harmony or retard the pros
perity of the city of Erie, or any other
pgtion of this Commonwealth.
— the resolution proposing amendments
to the Constitution of the Commonwealth,
have been published as directed by that
instrument. It will be your duty to take
such action in reference to these amend
ments as will, in your judgement, be most
consistent with the wishes of the people.
An appropriation will be required to pay
the expenses of their publication, and to
this your earliest attention is requested:
The important duty of districting the
State for the election of Senators and Re
presentatives, will devolve upon you. This
duty should be performed. faithfully, and
with strict reference to the interests and
rights of the whole people. Returns of
taxables, required to be made, by the dif
ferent counties, have not all been forward
ed to this department, as by law directed.
Circulars have ben issued to the officers
charged with these duties, urging their
speedy performance, and the returns will,
as soon as received, be transmitted to
The elective franchise is the highest and
most responsible privilege enjoyed by the
American citizen. Involving in its exer
cese the sovereignty of the people, and
constituting as it does the substratum of
our free institutions, it cannot be too high
ly appreciated or carefully guarded. The
ballot-box, through which the people
speak their will, should be preserved from
violation at every hazard and sacrifice.—
Upon its purity and integrity depend the
existence of our republican government,
and the rights and privileges of the citi
zen.' Every legal voter, whatever may be
his political affinities or party predilec
tions, is deeply interested in this question.
Any attempt to sully its purity, or im
pair its efficiency, whether by violence or
fraud; should bo sternly resisted and se
verely, punished. Illegal voting, whether
founded, on forgery or perjury, or both;
on false assessments, or false and forged
certificates of naturalization, is an evil
that, deserves,the severest condemnation:
it prevents an honest expression of the
popular will, corrupts the sources of le
gitimate power and influeno3, and strikes
a fatal blow at the cherished rights of free
men. These evils are alleged to exist in
our large cities—the rural districts of the
State are comparatively free from such
corrupting abuses. A remedy, co-exten
sive with the evil, should be provided.—
Every defence should bo thrown around
the ballot-box, and whilst the rights of le
gal voters should be secured and protect
ed, fraud in every form should be preven
ted and•punished. Whether a judicious
registry law, or somo other measure or re
form, adequate to'the necessities of the
e 'se should be adopted, is refered to the
w dem of the Legislature.
As appropriate to this subject, the re
:orm of the naturalization laws—the pre
vention, by the National Government, of
the importation of foreign criminals •and
paupers, and a more careful, rigid and
personal examination, by our courts, of all
persons coming before them as applicants
for admission to the rights of citizenship,
would, to some extent, correct existing
abuses, and relieve the ballot-box from the
pressure of corrupting and dangerons in
To the policy and acts of the National
Government, affecting, as they do, the
rights and interests of the Commonwealth,
the people of the State cannot be indiffer
ent. Pennsylvania, occupying a high and
conservative position in the sisterhood of
States—devoted to the Constitution and
the Union, in their integrity and harmony,
has been, and will ever be, as ready to
recognize the rights of her sister States as
to defend her own. These sentiments she
has never abandoned—these principles she
has never violated. -Pledged to the-main
tenance of the rights of the north, as well
as those of the south—sincerelY desirous
to promote the peace, harmony and tvel- ,
fare of our whole country—and disclaiming
all intention or desire to interfere with the
Constitutional rights of- the States, or their
domestic institutions—the people of this
Commonwealth viewed with alarm and
apprehension the repeal of the Missouri
Compromise—a compromise rendered sa
cred in public esteem -by its association
and connection with the great cause of
national harmony and union—regarding
it as a palpable violation of the plighted
faith and honor of the nation, and as an
unwarrantable attempt to extend the insti
tution of domestic slavery :to territories
then free. This reckless and indefensible
act of our National Congress, has not only
aroused sectional jealousies and renewed
the agitation of vexed and distracting
questions, but, as a consequence, it has
filled Kansas with fraud, violence and
strife—has stained its soil with blood, and
by a system of territorial legislation, just
ly styled "infamous," has made freedom
of speech and of the press, a felony, and
periled. the great principles of liberty and
equal rights. If the doctrine of "popular
sovereignty" is in good faith"to be applied
to that Territory—if the people thereof
are to be left "perfectly free to form and
regulate their domestic institutions in their
own way, subject only to the Constitution
of the United States," then the obstruc
tion of the great National highways to the
northern emigrant—the employment of
the National forces, and the subversion of
law and justice alike by the Officials in
Kansas and Washington, to force slavery
upon an unwilling people, cannot be too
Freedom is the great centre truth - of
American Republicanism—the great law
of American Nationality ; slavery is the
exception. It is local and sectional; and
its extension beyond the jurisdiction cre
ating it, or to the free territories of the
Union, was never designed or contempla
ted by the patriot founders of the Repub
lic. In accordance with these sentiments,
Pennsylvania, true to the principles of the
act of 1780, which abolished slavery with
in her territorial limits—true to the great
doctrines of the Ordinance of 1787, which
dedicated to freedom the north-western
territory of the Union—true to National
faith and National honor, asks and expects,
as due to her own citizens who have, in
good faith, settled in the territory of en
sas, and as due to the industry and energy
of a free people, that Kansas should be
In this connection, and as consequent
upon the repeal of the Missouri Compro
mise, reference to a proposition made by
some of the leading southern journals,
and more recently sanctioned by high of
ficial authority in a sister State, to re-open
the African slave trade, will not be deem
ed improper. That such a traffic, declared
to be piracy, and execrated by the civili
zed world—so crowded with horrors in
every stage of its pursuit—so revolting to
every sentiment of humanity—every im
pulse of pure and noble feeling, should be
advocated or approved, in this nineteenth
century, with apparent sincerity, and ur
ged as a measure of political economy and
of justice and equality to the. southern
States of the Union, are facts that find
their only explanation and apology in a
wild enthusiasm, or a still wilder fanati
cism that overwhelms alike the reason and
the conscience. The wisdom and ,humnn
ity of a proposition so startling and mon-'
strolls, must seek their parallel, and
tration in the dungeons of the Inquisition,
or in the hold of the slave ship, amid the
horrors of the "middle passage." Equally
repulsive to the intelligent and virtuous
sentiment of the south as well as the north,
it should receive the indignant rebuke of
every lover of his country—of every friend
of justice and humanity. The history of
the world and of crime does not reveal a
traffic more inhuman—an attrocity more
horrible. Against a proposition so' abho
rent, and against the principles it involves,
as the representatives of a free people, and
in their name you should enter their unan
imous and emphatic proteSt. -
The Union of the States,
tutes us one people, should be dear to you
—to every American citizen. In the heat
and excitement of political contests—in
the whirl of sectional and conflicting in
terests—amid the surging of himan pas
sions, harsh and discordant voices may be
heard, threatening its integrity and de
nouncing its doom; but in the calm,
"saber, second thought" of patriotic and
virtuous people, Will be found its security
aryl defence. FQindod in wisdom, an/
cherished by the intense affection of pure
and devoted patriotism, it will stand, safe
and undisturbed, amia the insane rage of
political demagogism, and the fitful howl
ing of frantic fanaticism; and when it falls
—if fall it must—it will be when liberty
and, truth, patriotism and • virtue, have
perished. Pennsylvania' tolerates no sen
timent of disunion—she knows not the
word. Disunion 1 "%is an after-thought
—a reonatrous. wish—unborn till virtue
dies." • The Union and the Constitution
—the safe-guard and bond of' American
Nationality—will be revered : . 114 . 4 defended
by every American Freeman -who cherish..
es the principles and honors the memory
of the illustrious founders of the Repiiblic:
Recognizing our responsibility to Him
who controls the destinies of nations and
of men; and invoking his blessing on your
