WASHINGTON, Feb. 28, 1861.
The motion to reconsider the vote
by which Mr. Corwin's proposed
amendment to the Constitution yester
day failed to receive the required two
thirds vote, was announced as the
first business in order.
of Indiana, who made
the motion, called the attention of his
Republican friends to the importance
of the vote they were now called on
to give. But a few days ago, they all
emphatically declared, by sanctioning
a resolution which was unanimously
adopted, that they had no desire nor
disposition to interfere with slavery in
the States where it exists. Yesterday,
however, they seemed to have forgot
ten this declaration, being carried
away by wild fanaticism. The pecu
liar condition of the country required
some action. If they had changed
their ground since the occasion to
which he had referred, and were now
disposed to invade .the sovereignty of
the States, then he was no Republican.
In repeated speeches he had said that
those who accused the Republicans of
such a design uttered a slander.—
Should they say to the world, when
they are about to possess the power
of the Government, that they are
for using it to break down the sover
eign rights of the States, and invade
their privileges ? If that was the doc
trine he could not subscribe to it.—
They should bear in mind that.they
were not the masters, but the mere
servants of the people. The proposi
tion to amend the Constitution should
be taken to their masters, and the lat
ter should be asked whether they will
approve or reject it. For the sake of
the peace and quiet of the country and
for the good of the Republican party,
he appealed to them to come forward
to-day, and with the same unanimity
that they voted for the resolution to
which he had referred,• declare the
same thing in the pending proposition,
as an amendment to the Constitution.
If you fail to give peace, you wrong
yourself, and not the people, and on
your heads will fall the responsibility.
Mr. Stanton, of Ohio, said while
there were fifteen slaveholding States
acknowedging allegiance to the Fede
ral Government and therefore haviner
themselves against an invasion of their
rights, it was a matter of little conse
quence whether such an amendment
to the Constitution be inaugurated or
not; but the stette of the country is
now essentially and radically changed.
Seven or eight States now deny their
allegiance to the " Government, and
have proceeded to organize a separate
Confederacy, "independent of the Fed
eral Government. Whether it will be
recognized or not, is a question for
the future. If these States maintain
their position for a year or two, and
it should appear that nothing hut war
can bring them back, he would be
disposed to recognize their independ
ence. In this state of things, if ;the
remaining slaveholding States contin
in the Union, they are entitled to
additional guarantees, [Exclamations
on the Democratic side of " Good!
good I That's right."] There are now
seven slaveholding and nineteeraree
States. In ten years hence, Delaware
will, for all practical purposes, be free.
This will make twenty free and six
slaveholding States, and in a few more
years we will have five more free
States. .There would then be the
requisite three-fourths of the States to
change the Constitution, and confer
on the Federal Government the power
to interfere with slavery in the States.
Ile held that this was a power which
should never be invested in Congress,
if there was even only one slavehold
ing State. Slavery was a matter of
local and State concern. If he was
a citizen of a slaveholding State, and
desired the emancipation of slavery,
he would resist all interference by the
Federal Government. If it was the
purpose to afford constitutional pro
tection to the slaveholding States,
which the altered condition of the
country demandf, it was incumbent
to submit the proposition to the people,
to say, at least, how they will recog
nize it. It. ought not to be said, that
the Constitution, as our fathers made
it, is sufficient. At the time of its
adoption, there was only one free
State; the others were slaveholding;
therefore, there was no necessity for
guarantees. He was in earnest when
he said he did not desire to interfere
with slavery in the States, and appre
hended that his associates did not.—
If the Border Slave States remain in
the Union, they have the right to de
mand such guarantees , and, so far as
he was concerned, they shall have
them [Applause ftom the Democratic
and Southern sides.] His friend 4 on
the Republican side were making a
mistake. He would tell them that
public opinion in the States they repre
sent will not warrant their refusal.—
At all events, it was ungenerous to
refuse the people an opportunity to
etexnress their opinion. Their position
not be sustained. He would
say to his, Southern friends, if this
guarantee e now refused, let them
forego any act of secession, until there
shall be an opportunity for appeal to
the people of the free States. [Applause]
He called for the previous question.
Mr. Lovejoy, of Illinois, amid great
confusion, appealed to Mr. Stanton to
withdraw his demand for the precious
Mr. Stanton most emphatically re
fused to do.
Several gentlemen complained of
the confusion, as it was impossible to
understand what was going on. Some
said the noise was owing to the large
number of strangers on the floor,
while others charged the disorder to
the members themselves.
The Speaker directed the doorkeeper
to do his duty.
The question was then taken on re
considering the vote rejecting Mr. Cor
win's proposed amendment to the
Constitution. It was agreed to—yeas
138, nays 65:.
Mr. Hickman raised a point of order
that two-thirds were necessary to re
consider, but the Speaker decided that
a mere majority was necessary for

outbreak of confusion.
Members demanded the enforcement
of the rules, and the Speaker called on

agreeing to the amendment of Mr.
Corwin, as follows :

STITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES.

Remarks of Judge Lewis on Presenting
President Buchanan with the Resolu
tions of the Democratic Convention.
The Convention of the Democratic
party, that assembled at Harrisburg,
on the 22d ultimo was the largest that
ever assembled in this Commonwealth.
.It was composed of distinguished men
from every part of the State, repre
senting every shade of opinion hereto
fore existing in the party.
Ex-Chief Justice Lewis was chair
man of the Committee on Resolutions,
and reported them to the Convention.
They were unanimously adopted. A
committee of thirty-four was appointed
to convey these resolutions to the
Peace Congress, and to the President
and Vice President
,of the 'United
States. ' This committee attended in
the East Room of the White ' House,

President as follows:
flit. PRESIDENT : You see in attend
ance thirty-four citizens of Pennsylva
nia, constituting a committee appoint
ed by the Democratic Convention held
in Harrisburg on the 21st and 22d
It gives me great pleasure that I
have been selected by my fellow-citi
zens as their organ, on this occasion :
first, because I know that you will be
gratified with the pleasing intelligence
we are about to communicate; and,
secondly, because it comes through
the channel of one old neighbor and
personal friend- to another. We are
charged with the agreeable duty of
presenting to you a copy of the reso
lutions adopted by that great Conven
tion. I speak of it as a great Conven
tion, because it was the largest rep
resentative assembly ever convened
in that Commonwealth, and because
it comprised the wisdom of men dis
tinguished for their long experience
in public life, and the energy of others,
younger in years, but equally well
known for their patriotic devotion to
the free institutions of their country.
I speak of it as a great Convention,
because it was composed of leading
and influential men from every part
of the State, and of every shade of
opinion heretofore existing among our
Your Excellency is aware that the
party . which has hitherto had the
chief agency in sustaining, and in ad
ministering our wise system of self
government, was unfortunately dis
tracted by differences of opinion iu
relation to the selection of your suc
cessor in office. This destruction of
our harmony paralyzed our action,
and was one of the principal means by
which our political adversaries were
enabled to gain their temporary tri
umph at the late Presidential election,
and thus to bring upon the country
the deep gloom which now spreads it
self over the laud. It will give you
great pleasure to learn that the dis
sensions to which I refer, so far as
they affect your native State, are en
tirely healed : that all private griefs
are "in the deep bosom of the ocean
buried ;" and that the great conserva
tive party, whose battles, when united,
are always victories, are now united as
a band of brothers, with one heart,
and ono voice, and that they are
ready and able, when a legitimate op
portunity shall offer, to rescue the
Government from the hands of those
whose avowed principles and threat
ened purposes are rapidly producing
Our Convention met on the 21st of
February, and closed its labors on the
22d, a day which gave birth to the
Father of our country, and a fitting
day for the serious consideration of
our present national difficulties. The
closing of that Convention was the
adoption of these resolutions, and the
appointment of this committee. The
full number of delegates called was
three hundred and ninety-nine, and,
with very few exceptions, all were in
A Committee on Resolutions was
appointed. That committee was
composed of thirty-three members, se

ber who was to represent them in the
committee. In speaking of my brethren
on that committee, I trust that I
may, be allowed to assure you• that
they were statesmen and patriots,
distinguished for their sound discretion
and their past services.
After many hours of calm, dignified
and independent, but harmonious de
liberation, they unanimously agreed
upon every resolution reported to the
Convention; and every resolution thus
reported was unanimously adopted by
that Convention, every member rising
from his seat, and proclaiming with
an earnestness which could not be

I know that it will give you real
satisfaction to learn that the high
council of our party whose representa

hesitated to affirm, with entire unanim

equal rights with ourselves in the Ter

treasure of all for the common benefit
of all ; that this right is founded on
the clearest; equity, is supported by
the decision of the highest court in the
Union, and ought to be sustained by
every law-abiding citizen until some
satisfactory division of the territory be
settled by an amendment of ;the Con

established rights, our COnvention has
nut followed the example of those who
acknowledge the justice of these prin

You will also perceive that our peo
ple in Pennsylvania are in favor of
aiding in the execution of that clause
of the Constitution which requires the
States to deliver up fugitive slaves to
their owners, and also in favor of re

will cling to it as the last hope of free

in one of those resolutions, a determi

prevent, by all proper and legitimate
means, any attempt, on the part of the
Republicans in power, to make armed
aggression upon the Southern States,
especially so long as the rights of the
latter continue to he unsecured, denied,
All these resolutions were adopted
with entire unanimity. But the one
which condemned armed aggression
upon the Southern States while their
rights were denied, was received with
the most unbounded enthusiasm. It
was evident, from the loud and long
countinued shouts of applause, which
burst spontaneously from that grave
and intelligent assembly, that their
&arts revolted against civil war, ar
raying father against son, brother
against brother, and friends and kin
dred against each other. Mingling

slaughtering each other in the fratici

the brave heroes of - Om - Mexican war;
to companions-in-arms who had won
their laurels together, fighting side by

Passage of the Railroad Bills
[Prom the Harrisburg Patriot & Union, March Ist.]
It is with pleasure that we are ena
bled to announce the final passage, by
the senate, of the bill for the commu
tation of tonnage duties upon the
Pennsylvania railroad, and also the
bill to promote the completion of the
Sunbury and Erie railroad, and there
by secure the immediate interest which
the State has in that great improve
ment. Having advocated the passage
of both of these bills, as calculated to
subserve the ir,true interests of this
State, in the face of prejudices existing
against them in the ranks of the polit
cal party to which we are devoted, we
cannot but feel gratified at their en
dorsement by decided majorities in
both branches of the Legislature, after
the closest scrutiny and the most am
ple discussion. Time will vindicate
the wisdom of the policy, which dicta
ted their passage, and old' prejudices
wear out and disappear forever.
Although the bill for the commuta
tion of tonnage duties was opposed,
earnestly-and ably, by gentlemen for
whom we entertain the greatest re
spect, we heard nothing to shake our
settled conviction of the impolicy and
injustice of the tax upon tonnage upon
the Pennsylvania railroad, or any oth
er avenue transporting the, products
of industry to market. We regard
that policy as suicidal—as inflicting a
deliberate injury upon the interests of
our own State—as calculated to build
up other States, having rival roads to
the great West, at the expenSe of Penn
sylvania—and as materially retarding
the growth and prosperity of our own
people. Aside from these paramount
considerations of public policy, the
tonnage tax' is unjust because it is un
equal. It lacks the essential requisite
of a rightful imposition, because its
product is drawn from ono class of the
community—the class of producers
who are couroelled to seek this avenue
to, market. These two objections are
fatal to the continuance of this tax,
and unanswerable in favor of its re
peal.- arguments drawn from the
amount of money which may be appa
rently lost to the Treasury by the re
moval of this tax, fall to the ground,
without first establishing its policy and
justice, aside from its productiveness;
for a tax -does not become right be
cause it pays an ample revenue. On
the contrary, the wrong becomes the
more flagrant in exact proportion to

A Thrilling Narrative.
The following narrative of Mrs.
Sherman's sufferings, from the pen of
her sister, Mrs. S. P. Martin, is har
rowing. It was written to the broth
er of both sisters, who resides in Fay
etteville, Fayette county, Texas. The
letter is dated Parker county, Texas,
Dec. 17, IS6O.
My Dear Brother :—The Indians
have again come down upon us, mur
dering cur sister Martha A. Sherman.
Her bite and suffering are too hor
rid to relate— a thought of the affair
sinks my soul into despair, and you
see that these lines are nearly obliter
ated by tears. To sicken and die by
the ordinary circumstances of Provi
dence, is but moderate suffering—but
to suffer the thousand deaths of a dy
ing one at the hands of the pitiless
savage, melts the heart to contem
The Indians went to Mr. Sherman's
house, shook hands with all, and asked
for something to eat. It was dinner
time, and they gave the Indians the
table. They ate and then ordered
Mr. S. to leave the house. He did so,
taking with him his wife and the three
little children. They had got off some
five or six hundred yards when the
Indians overtook them; sister was
carried back to the house by them,
alone, leaving Mr. S. and the children.
The heartless wretches here began
brutal outrages, whipping her all
the way to the house, over the face
and head, with their whips. After
reaching the house, they took from it
every article of value, even to the bed
clothing; then took poor sister by the
hair of the head, one of the brutes on
either side of her dragging her along,
still beating and Whipping her. They
even stuck pins in her flesh, and tor
tured her in every possible manner ;
finally took off her clothing, contiuing
to whip her, till, nature exhausted,she
sank under the burden of relentless
cruelty. They then scalped her, taking
off every strand of her dear hair, leav
ing the skull bone bare. And then to
clip the climax, they shot her through
the shoulder, leaving her, as they
thought, to die struggling in her own
life's blood. Here she was found, by
her husband, trying to drag her al
most lifeless body to a mud-hole of
water near by. fu this mangled state
she lived four days, suffering more
than language can describe.
Oh ! pitying heaven ! grant that it
may never be my lot again to weep
over such another scene. Mother and'
brother were with her in her dying
moments. Notwithstanding tho sever
ity of her treatment, she was sensible
of everything that passed. My dear
brother can you stand this, and not
resent the wrongs perpetrated upon
your own sister? Can you see those '
three little children, and not pursue
their mother's murderers ? Can you
see her scalp in the hands of the sav
cm brutes, and not rescue it,
though it cost you your life ! Can you
ever sleep while remembering her cries
with uplifted hands, invoking the Fa
ther of mercies to spare her life as she
was struck down by the clubs of the
black-hearted wolves ? No ! never !
The brother to whom this letter was

D OIIREWSPRACTICAL CALCU
1 Book of Rails Rules and Calculations for Business Ope
rations, by Marlin M. Rohrer, Practical Surveyor and
Conveyancer. New Edition, published by J. B. Lippin
cott 6• Co., Philadelphia.
This work contains 204 pages, and upwards of 500 - Rides
and Examples, entirely and thoroughly practical, such as
raise every day In tho common pursuits of Business. It
has already passed through a number of editions in rapid
succession, and is piunounred by all, classes of business
men to be the handiest book of reference, pertaining to
calculations, that has ever been published.
Every example in the book is worked out in full and
stated in a plain manner, so that when a parallel case ari-
OR, those referring to the work will find no difficulty in
solving it; Ina word, the general arrangement of the
CALCULATOR is s:mple, that any one who knows how to
add, subtract, multiply and divide, can easily solve any or
dinary example that arises In business, or nrriro at the.
true result of any estimate required.
The chief aim of the author has been to eschew theory
and philosophy in figures, aiming only at facts and simpli
city, believing that business men care little about spen
ding s time diecuming the philosophy of rules, or the
science of figures, deeming it sufficient for their purpose
to be able at a moment, by reference, to arrive at the true
result. The CALCULATOR differs in this respect from all
other Arithmeties of the day and kindred works—it is a
key to practical business calculations—it is, in the hands
of the business man, what the key to mathematical works
in the hands of the teener in the school room—it foil!.
tales Mug and insures correctness.
THE WORK TREATS OF THE
lifeasurenient of Land, of Lumber, of Brick and Brick
Work, cf Steno and Stone, work, of grain and grain bins,
of coal and coal bins, of wood, of solids, of liquids, of cir
cular, erviaro or irregular vessels, of Cisterns and vats, of
roofing, of plasterer's, painter's, glazier's, paver's, plumb.
er's, paper hanger'. and upholsterers' work._ It treats of
currency and of foreign and domestic exchange, of the
decimal system, of reduction and its extended application
to businesS, of simple and compound interest, and their
entire application tobuslness transactions; with the laws
and usages governing the same, together with numerous
commercial forms—of legal tender, of partial payment on
notes, of banking and bank discount, of equation of pay
ment and of partnership accounts, of assessment of taxes,
of wolgbte and measures, of squaro and cubic measure, of
the square root and its application to business of surfaces,
of excavation, and of many other important practical
matters not within the scope of an adrertiscaueut tan:was
ties. . .
IT IS JUST TIIIS BOOK FOR 711 E
Fanner, the merchant, the mechanic, the &Mama, or the
professional man. It has proven a valuable auxiliary to
the lawyer, the justice of the peace. the conveyancer. and
real estate broker, to the assessor, the banker, the clerk,
