pay their accounts at a moment's notice, with
out any difficulty; and we hope they will not
wait for another asking. We, as a general

who are so negligent as - Co leave their accounts
run for several years, when they are abun

Zer THE PENNSYLVANIA SCHOOL JOURNAL,
whose monthly visits are. received with wel
come at our sanctum, is deserving of the
highest encomiums. It is, we believe, the
pioneer of Common School publications in
the Commonwealth, and has earned the con
fidence and esteem of the hosts of supporters
of our admirable system of popular educa
tion. It should, and we earnestly hope it
does, circulate and is carefully read in every
school district in the State.
The last number, being for the current
month, is equal to its predecessors in the va
xiiety and usefulness of its contents.
DEAuLETTERS.--Postmaster General Camp
bell, in a recent report, states that the num
ber of letters uncalled for or dead, is proba
bly three millions, and it would seem abso
lutely proper that some measures should be
adopted by the department to insure the de
livery of these missives with greater certain
ty. $120,000 accrue to the post offices with
out their performance of the duty of deliver
ing the letters. • This matter has already been
brought to the notice of the officials of the
department, and probably the Postmaster
General of the incoming administration will
take the proper measures to amend an evil
which is felt to be very unpleasant.
The Philadelphia North American speak
ing of the retiring administration, pays the
following compliment to Mr. Campbell, the
late Postmaster General:
"The management of the Post Office De
partment can never give entire and universal
satisfaction; for its ramifications reach every
individual in the United States, and extend
to other lands. But by his (Mr. Campbell's)
untiring diligence, and ceaseless attention 'to
the details of his office, by the different ad
vantageous postal arrangements which he has
made with other countries, and with distant
parts of our own, and by the many wise and
salutary regulations which he has introduced
into the practical administration of his de
partment, Mr. Campbell has well earned the
reputation of an honest, faithful, and capa
These comments are well deserved. Du
ring the four years Mr. Campbell has had
charge of the Post Office Department, the bu
siness has been well and economically mana
ged; and some excellent improvements have
been introduced, the general convenience of
which is acknowledged by the public.

The Investigation=-zle the old man sane ?
Our readers will remember that some - weeks
ago we proposed to Wm. Brewster, the re
sponsible editor of the Huntingdon Journal,
an investigation of the charges he made
against us as Post Master. We gave/lira the
appointment of seven of the twelve gentlemen
to constitute the committee, or jury. After
giving him every advantage, he, was finally
compelled to accept our proposition, and an
nounced in his paper of January 28th, that
he would set about making the necessary pre
parations for the trial. Our proposition, ac
cepted by him, required that at least three
days notice of the meeting'of the committee
should be given in the Journal and Globe, but
to the surprise of ourself, the gentlemen na
med by us for the committee, and this com
munity generally, Wm. Brewster privately
notified those of the committee whom ho had
selected, but whose names he never announ
ced, to appear in Huntingdon on Friday even
ing last for the purpose of proceeding with
the investigation, without giving the required
public notice, or notifying either ourself or
our members of the committee ! We do not
know the names of all the gentlemen he se
lected for the committee, but we have under
stood that all or nearly so are from the coun
try, and it is reasonable to suppose from his
course in thus selecting his committee-men,
that there are not seven men of his party in
the borough of Huntingdon to whose honesty
and judgmk.nt he is willing to risk the inves
tigation ! The gentlemen we have heard na
med as having been selected by Brewster, we
have not the least objection to—we believe
them to be honest men, and competent to ren
der an honest and truthful verdict, if Brews
ter ever gives them an opportunity to hold
the investigation as agreed upon. That the
gentlemen selected by Brewster did come to
Huntingdon at his urgent request, to proceed
with the investigation, on Friday, we are pre
pared to prove by a gentleman who saw
Brewster's letter to one of the committee, ur
ging him to be punctual, and make his (Brew
ster's) house his home while in town.
We have no knowledge of what Brewster's
committee did. Perhaps Billy tried his case
before them privately to ascertain what chance
he might have in a public investigation.—
Shrewd old man I
In the meantime we await with patience
the action of Wm. Brewster, and urge him
to name his committee, and appoint the time
for the investigation, that public notice may
be given of the same through the papers ac
cording to our proposition, which he accept
ed. We want a full house.
We have placed. in the bank $l2O for the
use of the Committee as soon as the same
shall be organized. Will Brewster name the
time for a public investigation, or will he back,
crab-like, and be still a mark for the gibes
and reproaches of the community ?
This gentleman has proven himself to be a
representative in the United States Senate
worthy the great State of Pennsylvania. Ile
is jealous of her rights and a watchful guar
dian of her interests. This was most conclu
sively shown on Tuesday last, when a propo
sition was made by Mr. Adams in the Senate
to remit the duties upon the iron used on such
railroads as would carry the mails for eight
years, and which was further attempted to
be amended by admitting Railroad Iron free.
Governor BIGLER opposed both these proposi
tions as fatal to the interests of Pennsylvania,
and through his able and energetic efforts
they were defeated. The great Keystone
State may well felicitate herself upon having
such a - distinguished and influential Senator
in the National Councils.
The Decision of the Supreme Court.
The more radical Black Republican press
es continue to rave furiously at the recent
decision of the Supreme Court. This was to
be expected. All rational men perfectly un
derstand, that what little degree of attach
ment for the Union and the Constitution they
continue to profess is merely assumed for the
occasion. In reality, the point they wish to
to attack is the Constitution itself, and their
declamations against the late decision of the
Supreme Court, are levelled not so much
against that body as against the fundamental
law of the land. The great point of the re
cent decision, however, is that hereafter the
warfare of Black Republicanism must be di
rect and undisguised. It cannot be shelter
ed behind any assumed and insincere profes
sions. The constituted authorities of the na
tion have pronounced Black Republican dog
mas to be unconstitutional. He who con
tends for their enforcement, therefore, makes
war upon the Constitution itself. The plat
form of hostility to the Constitution avowed
by the open and frank Abolitionists of the
Grarriion school, must become the 4 platform
of Black Republicanism, or it must cease to
The Contested Seat from Pennsylvania.
WASHINGTON, March 13.—1 n the Senate,
to-day, in reference to the contested seat from
Pennsylvania, it was agreed on all sides that
the informalities presented in the protest do
not affect the right of Mr. Cameron to his
seat, and it was.held, also, that the question
of alledged fraud and corruption in the elec
tion, properly belonged to the Legislature of
Pennsylvania, and not to the Senate. The
resolution declaring Mr. Cameron entitled to
his seat as a - legally chosen, Senator, was
withdrawn by Mr. root, who offered it. The
Committee on - the Judiciary having been dis
charged from the further consideration of the
subject, the whole matter rests where it is.
" SERVED 'MI Racnr."—Those mercenary
Democrats, who, prizing their political prin
ciples by their pecuniary value to themselves,
went over to the Black Republicans in the
confident expectation of "making something"
by the election of Fremont, and. now find
themselves members of " whipped comma
nity," and branded traitors without the re
ward of treason, are served right!
The Dred Scott Case,.
It has been very long since-the Supreme
Court has been afforded a legitimate and in
nvitable opportunity of passing upon questions
which constitute the basis of the political di
visions of the day, and we can but foresee
that this decision will create, everywhere, a
profound sensation. For this reason, although
we have given the opinion of the very learn
ed Chief Justice at length in our columns,
we now propose, without reference to the facts
of the case before the court, to set out the
main propositions of constitutional law at
which the majority of the justices appear to
have arrived. In performing this task, we
shall not follow the precise order of the ar
gument as it was delivered from the bench,
but the logical succession of the propositions
which illustrate the constitutional question.
These propositions seem to be as follows :
1: That no negro, whether he be the de
scendant of ancestors who were slaves when
the constitution was adopted or of ancestors
who were free at that time, or whether be be
the descendant of free negroes who came into
any State of the United States after the con
stitution was adopted,can, even though he
be born within the limits of a free State, be
recognised by the law as a citizen of the Uni
ted State's, nor is he entitled to the privileges
which are, by the constitution, secured to those
who are citizens of the United States.
2. That any of the - States of this confed
eracy may, if they see proper, confer upon a
free negro the rights of citizenship within
that particular State, ei±ber by the provision
of their organic law or by diree,t enactment;
but the free negro upon whom this right is
conferred does - not for that reason become a
citizen of the United States, nor is he enti
tled to the benefit of those clauses in the con
stitution which apply to those who are both
citizens of a- State and citizens of the United
States. He cannot sue in any of the courts
of the United States, nor is he entitled to
claim, if he enters a State other than his own,
the privileges and immunities which are there
enjoyed by those who are not only citizens of
that State but citizens of the United States.
3. That Congress has no power under the
constitution to say that citizens of the United
States shall not hold slaves as property in any
territory of the United States in which the
said citizens may reside, or into which they
may remove with their slave property. The
ordinance of 1787, passed by the Congress of
the confederation, is unconstitutional and void
in so. far as it declares otherwise. This want
of per in Congress to exclude slavery from
a territory, by direct enactment, extends not
only to such territory as became the property
of the United States by the deeds of cession
from the several States, but also to such ter
ritory as may have become the property of
the United States since the adoption of -the
constitution under which we live.
Such are the main questions decided by a
judgment which is destined to, become the
point of support and. attack in the political
controversies which will be, we fear, hereaf
ter urged with acrimony in the halls of Con
gress and upon the hustings. If it is acqui
esced in, it will afford a peaceful solution to
the only question which has, for twenty-five
years, disturbed the tranquility of the coun
try. If it is assailed by legislation in Con
gress, which the processes of the courts are
powerless to rectify, we can only look to see
grave misfortunes result.
Our hope and our firm belief is, however,
that the patriotic and conservative masses at
the North will receive this judgment as the
law of the land and govern their conduct ac
cordingly. Under it they have no less rights
than their brethren from the Southern States;
and they should not desire to have more.—
Let all who will, cast their lots upon these
territories, which are the nurseries of the fu
ture greatness of the country. As actual in
habitants, in the exercise of their rights, they
can but determine for themselves whether
they will present the States which they shall
form to the Congress of the United States for
admission into the Union as free or slave
States. This rule of non-interference, while
it is sustained by the decision of that tribunal
to which all good citizens are under obliga
tions to submit, is happily the rule which
will most conduce by its application and ob
servance to the peace and prosperity of the
whole Union and to the closer alliance and
sympathy of the whole people.
A Washington letter says an amusing af
fair occurred there last week. Mr. Breckin
ridge, the Vice-President, went into a bar
ber's shop for the benefit of his manipula
tions, and having a good shave, put his
hand in his pocket for the expected dinie
but•found nothing, not even a cent! • Here
was a quandary for the second executive offi
cer of this great Republic. The barber no
ticing his customer's hesitation, began to
have suspicions that he was About being
shaved himself, but forebore losing his tem
per, as from Mr. B's. well knit frame r there
was some prospect•of his being lathered too.
He was in a placable state of mind therefore,
when Mr. B. very politely told him that he
found himself in an awkward predicament;
that he had not yet breakfasted, and that he
would call in after the necessary meal and
pay his bill. Our tonsorial fellow-citizen
muttered his assent to the arrangement, but
could not help saying, as Mr. B. passed out
of the door, "some .people do business in
that way, ,and you may pay." Mr. Breckin
ridge took everything as a gentleman should,
and after breakfast made all as "right as a
trivet." .The tonsor felt rather queer when
he understood the Matter, bat likes to be
quizzed about it.
BerPROTECTION TO MARRIED WOMEN.—
The Legislature of Missouri has just passed
a bill which says: If any man shall desert
his wife, or shall, from worthlessness, drunk
enness or from any other cause, fail to pro
vide for her maintenance, so that she is com
pelled to labor for the support of herself and
family, the earnings of any such wife, and
any property real and personal, purchased
by her with the proceeds of her labor, shall
belong to her in her own right, separate and
apart from her said husband, and shall not
be liable to his debts, nor in any manner
subject to his control.
WHERE IS TEE WEsx 2—The editor of the
Louisville Herald, says that, visiting Fort
Leavenworth, five or six hundred miles west
of Louisville, he said to a commander; "I
suppose you begin to feel, away out here, that
you have at last discovered that indefinable
region called the West' 2" "No, sir," said
he, " we are living in the east yet. Four hun
dred miles west of us, near Fort Larimie, is
the geographical centre of the, United States."

Western Land Speculations.
Mr. Greeley, of the N. Y. Tribune, is on a
tour to the West, and giving his opinions on
matters and things. In one of his letters
from lowa, dated lowd,City, Feb. 3, 1857, he
gives his views respecting the rage for spec
ulation, now going on. They may be_ of in
terest to some of our readers
"Almost every one here who isn't getting
drunk is getting rich, or thinks he is. The
soil here has so often doubled in market val
ue, that almost every one who came in more
than three years ago and bought land, now
counts himself at least on the high road to
wealth. Many a quarter section which was
bought for $2OO since 1850, is now held at
$2OO to $2,000 per lot—said lot containing,
perhaps, an eighth of an acre. Of course,
this is true only of village and embryo city
property; but there is very much unfenced,
unbroken prairie, which never had anything
done upon it to enhance its value, now held
at $lO to $3O per acre; while timbered tracts
range still higher—and the harvests usually
grown wherever the land has been fairly bro..
ken and tilled, seem to justify these prices.
" Still, the picture has its shades. Land
speculation, as a consequence of these rapid
enhancements of price, has become an epi
demic, which attacks all and will yet ruin
thousands. The bubble will be swelled till
it bursts. A crash in Europe or on th=e sea
board—a failure of crops, or any great dis
aster causing a contraction of credit and a
general collection of debts, may collapse it
any moment. There is many an operator,
who now counts his wealth by hundreds of
thousands and confidently expects soon to
reckon it by millions, who •will find himself
bankrupt before ten years roll round, unless
I am much mistaken.
The more I see of land speculation, where
its ravages arc most general, the less I like it.
Here men are eagerly grasping all the land
they can possibly purchase, paying exhorbi
taut usury, putting off needy creditors, liv
ing crowded in wretched huts, and letting
their children grow up in ignorance, in order
that they may clutch more land. I conversed
to-day with a thrifty sensible farmer, who
came in sixteen years ago, when there were
not three settlers in his township, and took
up a choice location, on which he has lived
till a few months ago, when he was obliged
to sell it and remove to the nearest village,
in order to educate his children; monopoly
of lands all around him, in part by non resi
dents, having deprived him of all school priv
ileges. Another pioneer, who came out fif
teen years ago, and has since acquired a prop
erty worth fifteen or twenty thousand dollars,
said compassionately to his poor brother who
had just joined him from New York—"lf
you had come out when I did, you might by
this time have been as well off as I am."—
"Yes," replied the other; "but I would not
swop estates with you, and have my children
no better educated than yours are."
Per contra--we may add, that we have re
ceived two or three papers from the west—
from lowa, giving assurances that great op
portunities for investing money, based upon
good security, and assurances of the rapid
rise in Real Estate, &c. We shall not advise.
The west has great inducements for emigra
tion, but mere speculation is another matter.

DarTERRIBLE FAMINE IN NORWAY.—HUN
DILY.DS DYING DAILY.—The English papers
have accounts from Norway, which give a
painful picture of the suffering of the inhab
itants of Lapland and Finland, bordering
on the North Cape of Norway. Owing to a
failure of the crops, the inhabitants are in a
state of starvation.
"Hundreds are dying daily, and the liv
ing are compelled to subsist as they best can,
on the bark of trees, ground and cooked with
oats. In order to alleviate these sufferings
charitable committees have been organized
on the opposite coasts of the Gulf of Bothnia
to collect contributions in kind, such as corn,
flour, vegetables and spirits, which will be
conveyed to them across the ice in sledges.
As an addition to the suffering of these poor
creatures, the cold is of a severity rarely ex
perienced even in these ice-bound, countries."
