PuEsrntmr's MESSAGE.—We give the
President's Message entire to day; and we
ask for it a careful perusal. It is an able
paper, and with the exception of the Kansas
question, it is highly satisfactory to men of
all parties.
The "Position of Walker and Douglad.
We have no hesitation in declaring that
we believe the stand taken by these distin
guished statesmen upon the Kansas question,
meets the views of ninety-nine out of every
hundred Democrats in this county. The right
of the people to ratify by their votes their or
ganic law, will be maintained by the yeo
manry of Pennsylvania at all hazards. The
Lecompton Constitution from the beginning
to the end has been fraudulent. The men
that framed it never represented the popular
sentiment of Kansas. In addition to the
overwhelming evidence that has marked this
conspiracy from the commencement, the very
fact that they guard in the instrument itself
against any attempt upon the part of the
Mass of the people from nullifying its obnox
ious provisions, confirms all the charges of
wrong that have been made against these
We are for a free vote upon a free Consti
tution. We are against this force work of a
band of political desperadoes in a matter in
volving the vital interests of a community.--
We are for popular sovereignty—really, not
nominally. In short, although we say it
with regret, we are upon this question against
the administration and with Walker, Doug.
las, Forney, and other leading Demcietats. If
the Democracy of the North wish to sink into
utter insignificance—if they wish to be rout
ed and overthrown in every State north of
Mason and Dixon's line, they have only to
sustain the Lecompton iniquity. Our word
for it, the pure love of freedom—the sturdy
independence and proud Democracy of the
free States will never consent that their sons
and brothers that have peopled Kansas shall
be shackled as common bondmen. The Nor
thern blood in Kansas shall have its rights
—we ask for nothing more and assuredly will
accept of nothing less. We claim but an
equality with our Southern brethren—we
yield that to them. The fortune of war has
given the new State to the North, and no
bluster or fraud will change its destiny.
"Resolved, That we recognize the right of the people of
all the Territories, including Kansas and Nebraska acting
through the rAuttr expressed will of the majority of actual
residents; and whenever the number of their inhabitants
justifies it, to form a constitution with or without domestic
slavery, and be admitted into the Union upon terms of
perfect equality with the other states."—Damocratic
tional Cbnvention, Cincinnati, 1856.
"we claimed that the Democracy were more the friends
of "free Kansas," because they wished to have her people
perfectly free to select ALL their domestic institutions. , _
William Bigler, in his speech delivered last summer in an
swer to a speech of David Wilmot.
It is to be regretted that there 'ire a few of
the leading Democrats in Congress, and a
portion of the press of this and other States,
favoring a virtual abrogation of the "plank"
in ' the Democratic platform of 'SG, upon
which our groat victory was gained, by urg
ing the admission of Kansas into the Union
as a State with a Constitution objectiona
ble to a very large majority of her actual
settlers, and which the traiter Calhoun with
the assistance of men of like political char
acter will attempt to force upon the people
on the 21st inst., denying them the right to
be pofictly free to select ALL their domestic
We regret that Hon. Wm. Bigler, who not
four months ago, pledged the Democracy of
this State as being earnestly the friends of
"free Kansas," should so soon . assume the
leadership of the enemies of "free Kansas."
His position, and past influence, may lead
astray a few who do not think for themselves,
and others who are "spoils" Democrats only,
but the masses, the honest men of our party
in the State, will remain firm, and demand
that the people of Kansas be left perfectly
free to select ALL their domestic institutions.—
The Democratic party will neither be lead or
driven into the support of minority rule in
Kanses. •
Douches' SPEECH.—After the reading of
the President's Message in the Senate, Mr.
Douglas rose, and said that he cordially con
curred in much the greater part of it, and in
most of the views expressed ; but in regard
to one topic—that of Kansas—he totally dis
sented from, all that portion of the message
which might fairly be construed as approving
of the proceedings of the Lecompton Con
vention—and at an early period he would
avail himself of an opportunity to state his
reasons for dissenting, and also to vindicate
the right of the people of, the Territory of
Kansas to be left perfectly free to form and
regulate their domestic institutions in their
own way according to the organic law.
Mr. Bigler also rose, and stated that he
concurred in the President's views, and would
make the best reply he could in defence of
the position the President had taken.
On Wednesday, Mr. Douglas gave his rea
sons for dissenting, in a speech of considera
ble length, and we are sorry to say that Mr.
Bigler .did attempt a reply. We shall try
to give Mr. Douglas' speech in our next.

The latest estimated cost of the work on
the Capitol extension at Washington, is $5,-
510,153, leaving to be appropriated the sum
of $1,185,153. A million will be required
for the next fiscal year. On the first ultimo,
there was a balance on hand, of former ap
propriations, of $594,225.
The construction of the General Post Of
ttce was originally estimated to cost $650,000.
It is now said that it will cost $700,000, of
which $600,000 have already been appropria
A further appropriation of $245,000 will
complete the dome of the Capitol, the cost of
which will not exceed the original estimate
of $945,000.
From the annual report of the commis

acts, 52 revolutionary soldiers, 338 widows
of soldiers, 265 half-pay widows and orphans,
291 invalid—total, 946. The arrears due on
the same at the date of issuing the pension

Gov. Walker is in Washington, and it is
said he will return to Kansas, though not in
an official capacity. Another rumor is that
he is about to issue an address to the people
of the 'United States, in vindication of his
course as Governor of Kansas, and of his
hostile attitude to the action of the Lecomp
ton Convention. It is also said that Judge
Douglas will introduce in the Senate a bill to
authorize the people of Kansas to form a
Constitution and State government. lie will
take the act which was framed by Mr. Toombs
of Ga., and which was passed by the Senate,
during the last Congress, before the eve of
the Presidential election, and with the vote
of every Senator who had sustained the Kan
sas- Nebraska act. The'bill as it passed, did
not provide for the submission of the Consti
tution to the people. But Mr. Douglas will
add that provision to the project.

In 1847, Wisconsin, in s, Convention regu
larly authorized by Congress, and legally
elected by the whole people of the Territory
voting and acquiescing in the election, made
a State Constitution and sent it to Congress,
demanding admission as a State under it.—
The Convention had omitted to submit their
Constitution to a vote of the people ; and Con
gress, therefore, sent it back to the people of
Wisconsin, and required it to be so submitted
before she could be admitted into the Union,-
and it was so submitted and approved.

David Wilmot, of Bradford county, to be

Kansas Slavery Question
If it were true that the slavery question
was fairly submitted to the people of Kansas
by the schedule of the Kansas Convention,
we should decidedly object to the admission
of that Territory into the Union as a State,
under a Constitution which had not received
the sanction of her citizens. The issue in
volved rises above any mere sectional ques
tion. The whole doctrine of self-government
is at stake. The principles of the Demo
cratic party have been violated. The right
of the people to pass judgment upon their
own fundamental law has been denied them,
in defiance of the pledges of the delegates
who framed it. A Convention, elected by
a meagre minority of the people, has arro
gated to itself supreme power on a question
which of right belongs to the people only.—
We obey but the irresistable promptings of
genuine Democratic impulses in protesting
against this usurpation, for it is nothing less.
The doctrine that the slavery question alone
should be submitted to the people is an unte
nable one. The same reasons which render
ed it desirable or proper to submit that ques
tion, operate equally strong in favor of a sub
mission of the whole Constitution.
The Democrats of the Northern States have
been fighting for the Kansas-Nebraska bill
for three years, on the ground that the right
of self-government by the people of the Ter
ritories was a sacred one, not only in one but
in all respects. They have insisted upon
their right to decide the slavery question for
themselves, because of the universal conces
sion that they were authorized to decide all
other questions. The final settlement of the
question, by leaving them " perfectly free"
to settle the slavery question, and depriving
them of the right of popular decission upon
all other questions, would be an unmitigated
outrage, and, beyond all doubt, a clear vio
lation of all hitherto acknowledged National
Democratic theories on this subject.
But even the slavery question is not fairly
submitted, as all who have paid the slightest
attention to this subject must be fully aware.
The liberty of voting for or against slavery
can only be obtained by compliance with cer
tain unjust and humiliating conditions.—
These are as follows:
First. Every voter who is challenged must
swear to support the Constitution, if adopted,
under peril of a trial for perjury under the
territorial laws.
The design of this clause seems to provide
a convenient method for inflicting criminal
punishment for a mere political offence, in
case any obnoxious voter, after having taken
this oath, should not be as zealous in de
votion to the Calhoun Constitution as its au
thors require. At all events, it is an unheard
of requirement in a republican country, and
one which was no doubt specially designed
to drive high-minded citizens from the polls.
Second. Before any man Can vote against
slavery, he must vote for the Calhoun Consti
He may feel that the very act of fastening
that Constitution upon him as the fundamen
tal law under which he must live, without
submitting it to a vcte of the people, is an
infamous -wrong. He may believe that Con
stitution to be a bad one—a Know-Nothing
.Constitution, a Bank Constitution, a Consti
tution which makes in advance an apportion
ment upon a fraudulent election return, and
thus seeks to give a preponderance of political
power forever to a minority —yet, he must
endorse all this without a murmer, before
he can vote against slavery.
What a mockery it is to say, that when
these humiliating conditions are affixed to the
right of suffrage, the question of slavery or
no slavery is fairly submitted!
But independent of all this, the slavery
question is not fairly submitted, because there
is no guarantee whatever that the election will
be fairly conducted. The whole regulation
of it is lodged in CALHOUN, president of that
Convention—a man denounced throughout
the whole Territory as one of the most un
scrupulous men it contains.. He has fur
nished convincing proof of his perfidy by
the fact that, after pledging himself fully
and unreservedly to submit the whole Con
stitution to the, people of Kansas, he violated
that pledge, and was a leading spirit in pre
venting a submission of the Constitution to
the people. He has been charged by nearly
the whole press of Kansas with complicity
with the infamous Oxford fraud, and we be
lieve has never denied his connection with
that disgraceful transaction. Yet this man,
publicly self-convicted of perfidy, and ac
cused of fraud, has absolute and dictatorial
power given him to regulate the election or
dered by the Constitutional Convention. Ile
is to appoint three men in each county, who
are to appoint three in each district to hold
the election, and when the returns are all
transmitted, lie is to decide upon the legality
of the votes cast, &c. The ordinary and ex
isting election laws of the Territory are all set
aside to give full play to C.ALHOUN'S genius in
this constitutional election, and we do not
doubt that he will be fully equal to the expecta
tions which his supporters formed of him.
Who, with these facts before him, can pre
tend for a moment that the slavery question
is fairly submitted by the Kansas schedule?
Who does not feel that any election ordered
under such provisions and such auspices can
be nothing more than a mere disreputable
swindle—which, did it not excite our indig
nation' by the wrong it seeks to shield and
perpetuate, we should deem ridiculous and
absurd?—Forney's Press.
We have condemned from the first, and
shall continue to condemn, all attempts, made
by either party in the Territory of Kansas,
to nullify the great principle of popular sov
ereignty enunciated in the Kansas-Nebraska
Act, or to swindle the majority out of their
just rights. Both parties in that Territory
have more than once attempted to do so, and
its recent Constitutional Convention has again
essayed to do the same thing with a high
hand. They have, in direct violation of that
principle, refused to submit the Constitution
to a vote of the people, and require that it
shall be adopted whether it speaks the will
of the majority or not—only permitting an
expression of opinion for and against Slav
ery, and that in such an objectionable form
as to make it a matter of doubt whether any
thing like a full expression of the popular
sentiment could be had on that question.—
This is not the spirit and intent of their or
ganic act, and should not, and we firmly
trust will not, be countenanced by Congress
when application is made for admission into
the Union, for in no event can the people
vote down that Constitution, however obnox
ious it may be. They are thus forced to
swallow it, save the slavery exception, whe
ther they approve it not; and instead of be
ing clothed, as designed by their organic act,
with supreme sovereignty, they are to be
mere puppets in the hands of a body of men
who received their authority from them, and
who now claim to be a higher authority.
From the Somerset Dethoerat
Through the suicidal policy of the Free
State men last spring, in refusing to take
part in the election for delegates to the Con
stitutional Convention, the pro-slavery men
obtained complete control of that body, and
we now see the fruits of that policy in an at
tempt to force the people into the approval
of a Constitution whether it is acceptable top
them or not. The friends of a fundamental
principle embodied in the Kansas-Nebraska
Act, will not see it violated with impunity.
The people of Kansas must be permitted to
frame their own domestic institutions in their
own way, and no minority should ever be al
lowed to force upon them laws against their
will We desire to see fair play all round,
and whatever may be the result on the slav
ery clause on the 21st instant, when a vote
is to be taken, we have confidence in Con
gress that she will refer the whole matter
back to the people, that they may have the
opportunity of framing their own institu
tions, subject only to the Constitution of the
United States.

ST. Louis, December 14.—The Special Ses
sion of the Kansas Legislature was organiz
ed on the Bth instant by the election of C.
W. Babcock President of the Council and
G. W. Deitzler as Speaker of the House.
Acting Governor Stanton, in his message,
states that in consequence of recent events
having produced profound agitation in the
public mind and that a sense of wrongs and
injustice, whether well or ill founded, and an
apprehension of greater evils to arise, have
aroused the people of the Territory to a con
dition of great excitement. I find myself
compelled by a sense of duty to call vou to
gether, that you may adopt prompt Legisla
tion, in a measure to avert the calamities
which threaten the public peace. After re
viewing the formation and action of the Con
stitutional Convention, Governor Stanton rec
ommends-the passage of an act directing the
election to be held under different officers on
the same day and at the same places provided
by the Proclamation of the President of the
Convention authorizing the people to vote fer
the Constitution, in either of the forms pre
sented by the Convention, and also against the
Constitution in both forms.
The Governor also recommends the pas-
Sage of a law making fraudulent returns
of votes a felony, with suitable punish
ST. Louis, Dec. 14.—The Kansas letters to
the Republican state that an intense excite
ment prevails among all classes of people in
the Territory. The probabilities are that the
party opposed to the Lecompon Convention
will not permit the election of the 21st inst.,
to be held. Gen. Lane, with three or four
hundred men, is encamped near Lecompton.
Threats have been made to drive General Cal
houn and the other members of the Lecomp
tcn Convention from the Territory, but no
outbreak has yet been attempted.
From the Mormon Expedition.
A correspondent of the Cincinnati Inquirer
sends some recent intelligence from the mili
tary expedition to Utah to bring the 'Saints'
to their senses. The letter is dated Fort
Reany,'-:November 11. Ile says :
"Armed parties hover around the camp of
Col. Alexander, on Green River, and I am
informed he has two Mormon prisoners, who
were taken in his camp. The grass near us
has been fired, and consumed forty or fifty
acres of it. It was yet smoking when we
came up last night.
"We are now encamped in the South Pass
of the mountain, awaiting the arrival of our
provision trains. Three of twenty-six wagons
each are here, and four more will be up in a
day or two. We are in want of forage very
much. Our animals have had to subsist on
the grass, and it is already covered with
snow. You need not be surprised if we lose
nearly all our animals. It will require us
about five days more to collect all our trains
and muster Col. McGraw and his men into
service, when we will go forward on to the
waters of Green River, in Utah, and there
establish and fortify a depot for supplies,
where we will look out the Mormons. In the
meantime they will continue to annoy us,
taking care, as I believe, to keep out of the
reach of our guns.
"These Mormons have the impudence of
the devil. They have a mule train of ammu
nition a few days behind, and its conductor
applied to Col. Johnston for passports to go
on into Salt Lake City. The Colonel replied,
if there was no war declared against us, lie
needed no such thing, and, if war existed,
he should permit no one to enter the valley.
Unless they find some by-way through the
mountain, this train will be seized in the
name of the United States, and its men held
in custody for trial.
"A chief of the Snake Indians was in our
camp two days since. From him we learn
that all the other Indians in this region are
in league with the Mormons. Ire and his
band prefer neutrality. Brigham Young tried
to engage him, but he replied that, 'When
redskin fight redskin, bluecoat stand upon
the hill and look on ; when blueccoat fight
bluecoat, redskin stand upon the bill and
look on ; when bluecoat fight redskin, red
skin turn his back—bluecoat is very great.'
Yet I think, this little band will give us valua
ble assistance before long. I expect that Col.
Johnson will, as he reaches the Territory of
Utah, declare martial law, and subject all of
fenders to a trial by court martial. If this
is done, Judge Eckels and his associates will
have but little to do for a while."
MINGS IN NEBRASKA.-A correspondent
of the St. Louis Republican writes: The
Territory at present is minus a head. Gov.
hard having resigned his post, left some
two weeks since. We learn that no Govern
or is to be appointed until the opening of
Congress. The crops the past season have
been exceedingly good. Emigration this fall
having been small, there will be no want
this winter, either for man or beast. Corn is
selling at fifty cents a bushel, and potatoes
at thirty, and plenty at that. Although the
weather has already set in rather cold, yet
there is every indication that this winter will
not be as severe as the last. If such an
event should Occur, the inhabitants are gen
erally better prepared for it than they were
last winter, They have more fodder and
better buildings, last winter having taught
them a lesson of experience that they will
not soon forget. The treaty just completed
with the Pawnees by Gen. Denver, will prove
a God send to that degraded tribe. The
braves leave in a few days for Washington,
to ratify said treaty. Their tract of land,
fifteen miles by thirty, on the Loup Fork,
equals in fertility any other tract west of
the• Missouri river.

Dr. Hardman treats Consumption, Bronchitis, Asthma,
Larryngittis and all diseases of the throat and lungs, by
Medical Inhalation, lately used in the Bromton Hospital,
London'. The great point in the treatment of all huuum
maladies. is to get at the disease in the direct manner.—
All medicines are estimated by their action upon the organ
requiring relief. This is the important fact upon which
Inhalation is based, If the stomach is diseased we take
medicine directly into the stomach. If the lungs aro dis
eased, Ureathe or inhale Medicated vapors directly into
the lunge. Medicines are antidotes to disease and should
be applied to the very seat of disease. Inhalation is the
application of this principle to the treatment of the rungs,
for it gives us direct access to those intricate air cells, and
tubes which lie out of reach of every other means of ad
ministering medicines. The reason that Consumption,
and other diseases of the lungs, have heretofore resisted
all treattuent has been because they have never been ap
proached in a direct inannvi, by medicine. They were in
tended to act upon the lung.:, and yet were applied to the
stomach. Their action Was intended to be local, and yet,
they were so administered that thby should only act con
stitutionally, expending their immediate and principal ac
tion upon the unoffending stomach, whilst the foul ulcers
within the lungs were unmolested. Inhalation brings
the medicine in direct contact with the disease, without
the disadvantage of any violent action. Its application is
so simple, that it can be employed by the youngest infant
or feeblest invalid. It does not derange the stomach, or in
terfere in the least degree with the strength, comfort, or
business of the patient:
Other Disease 3 fireated.—ln relation to the following dis
eases, either when complicated with lung affections or ex
isting alone, I also invite consultation, I usually find them
promptly curable.
Prolapsus and all other forms of Female Complaints, Ir
regularities and 'Weakness. .
Palpitation and,all other forms of Heart Disease, Liver
Complaints, Dyspepsia, and ail other diseases of stomach
and bowels, &c.
All diseases of the eye and ear. Neuralgia, Epilepsy,
and all forms of nervous diseaSe.
