interesting! Debate in the
; • -• ’l j ,
We are indebted -to the Pennsylvanian.for
the following synopsis of the debate in the
Senate, between Messrs. Brown and Pen
robe, on the bill for the payment of, the'
troops that participated in the' Harrisburg
War, during the-month-of December.', It
will amply, repay a perusal, aiid will con
vince every one of tlie truth of the declara
tion repeatedly made, that’the gifted demo
cratic Senator from tlie comity of Philadel
phia is more than- a match for the “fining
phenonienon” who would fain have consid
ered himself tlie Demosthenes, of that body.
Senate, March 5, 1839;
The Senate took up in committee of the
whole," the Bill relative tb the payment of
troops, Mr. Copiah in the chair.
’.Mr. Penrose took the floor, and spoke at
great length upon this question. He pro
tested against making any differenceietlveen
the troops from Philadelphia, andfhose from
Cumberland. The troops from the Ist di
vision (he said)’ had performed no greater
services to the state, than the troops from
the 11th division; and they should be placed
on a perfect equality. ItJias been asserted
by senators here, that there was no occasion
for ordering out the troops; that there was no i
mob, nor appearance of a mob in this’ Hall.
Now, sir, was there notarmnss of men crow
ded into those lobbies? Did they not, when
■ the senator from Delaware (Mr: Myers) ad
dressed them, manifest tbcjr approbation of
what he said, by loud shouts, acclamation,
and stamping of feet?' And when he (Mr.
Penrose,) decided that Mr. Brown, now a
senator from the county, had no right' to
address the senate, as he was not t?ien a'
"member, did not that crowd in the lobby
cry out "knife tlurspcakcr—ride him on a
rail?” Did they hot say, ‘ that they would
have blood—that the senate chamber should
he drenched with blood? And yet it is
gravely that there Was no mob! no'
disturbance! . • 1
' The rest of argument w’ehf to prove
that (he-governor had a constitutional-right
to call'out the military, when he belicycd
there was sufficient cause. -
Mr. Brown followed. Tim auhjor.L had
bcen_ reviewed and re-reviewed so- often,
(hat it seemed almost out .of place'to go into
.discussion again. But the senator, from
Cumberland had thought proper to revive it,
and he felt bound to answer him.
He had given his views in relation to this
| subject at length on former occasions. He
j had declared it as his conviction, that the
i governor had no right to order out the mili
tary. He had declared that there was not
the shadow of a pretext forTT'call upon the
troops. He had denied the existence of a
mob—and he now denied that there was ev
en the appearance of a mob!
The call upoif'tlie military was unauthor
ized by the constitution. The power is
given to the executive in extraordinary em
ergencies only,—such as an open rebellion
against the laws. It may be, that the gov
ernor, In issuing the order, was ignorant of
the facts as they transpired Here. It may
be, that .he was made the dupe of the un
principled arid designing men who were his
counsellors? Certain it is, sir, that it was
represented to him, that there was a “lawless
and infuriated'mob” in possession of tlie.
Capitol,—that this mob was led on by offi
cers, of- the general-government! The law
was put in force against certain individuals,
said to be their leaders. They were drag
ged from the bosom of their families and
from their’.firesides, and arraigned before
the civil tribunal. Did they resist the ac
tion of the law? No, sir, they submitted
peaceably ! You cannot point to a single!
instance when any of them so cal led'ring
leaders, resisted the law! Sir, the charge
of setting the law at defiance, was false, id
tiiough it came from the executive himself!’
Who did not witness the organization of
this senate; with'feelings'of pain and humil
iation? Who beheld the honorable speaker
take the chair; arid organize the senate in a
manner junknowri to the and
jaws, without blushing for the honor ofPenn
sylyania? Arid'did we see individuals take
their seats as senators, and hear their names
called, overto. vote, who had never been, e-t
lected to this seriate? And when objections
were made, did ript the speaker silence all
opposition? Did lie'ymt unite with a iriajb- 1
rity dr that seriate : in rejectipg- a resolution
calling on'the secretaryof the* comriion wealth
for all the returns iri;hia office? ; Did he not
refuse you shy (appealing, to the chairmanof
the committee,)., the .right of voting on-ope 1
. question afterhe had allowed you to vbteoii
another? Did you not solemnly and. empha
tically' protest against his tyranny at the
time Sir, cvety act of the 'speaker on
that occasiori/ liaabecn that which would de
fine-a-tyrant! Have nol-the rights of-the
people been tranhpled riporiP' Arid yet, when
the people rose'ip defence,of their rights,
they are : Branded a lawless arid infuriated
mob!—as expressed itya' Icdter to himself,
during the lafe troubles! , In’ the language
of a. distiriguished 'iriember- of the svhig par
ty, I cpnld explain, “the stormb’of demoefaf
dvj rather than the'tranquility of despotism ! s> ,
Who. doearaotrememherthctrariquility that
reigned here, until the seriate fefidfed to call
upon the-age oMie.comnipriwealth for*
.all • the- returns? Not ’a .sound was then
•beared from tlie'lobbics!' ,''Of alllthri' aVsem-'
j ■' j:jl
tied freemen who were- crowded; together in
the gallery, there ,was maintained, sir, the
silence of the sepulchre! But when,they
saw the constitution violated—when they
beheld the iniquitous scene -which' was tran
sacted, defrauding them of their legal repre
sentatives,: and others substituted in their
places, their feelings of indignation could no
longer be smothered?- He did not speak of
his situation on that occasion. Had the se
cretary, of the commonwealth sent in all the
returns in 'his: possession, ' all-would have
passed off wilhipcrfect tranquility. Sir/, if
it is left for the sccretary to say who are c
lected -members,- and who are not' elected
numbers, fraudulent returnsmay be sent in
from every- county in 'Pennsylvania, and
members admitted to seats- here, who have
Tievcrbeen elected by the people. Sir,-this
would-be an act too monstrous to betolera
ited! The people of Pennsylvania Would
better submit to such a government. . They
would never-remain silent; when such a vio
lation'of law was to be perpetrated; and will
any one deny that such an act of fraud and
villahy was attempted? Was it an act of
violence, then, for those freemen in the lob
bies to cry out for their rights? He could
assent' then to no such doctrine.- The offi
cers of: government are not to decide upon
what they may believe to be.the
the law! The.law, sir; is supreme over alll
If they disobey the law; are we to pay them
for their lawless acts? All will agree that
the call upon the troops was unconstitution
al—that it was a mob act. He would not
say that it was an act of.madmen—-but that
itself was a mob act;
Sir, if 'men will violate the law, let (hem
be punished. If there were any in this Hall,
who violated the law, let them be punished!
They were never here before, 'and he trust
ed in God, they would never be here-again
-‘-for he hoped they Wouldncver have cause
to come here again! But, sir, they were
branded as a “mob.” Can ymi point nie to
the ruined walls of the Arsenal, or the ruin
ed walls of the Capitol, or the rained bridges?
Whom did the “mob”-injure? whom did
they'wrong? whom did they harm? None
—-none —none! But, sir,’ if you -had gone
on with your schemes of villainy by placing
j men in their seats, who-never had bceji e-
Iccted'by the people, you -WOuld have found
I more ‘'mobs” than one—you would have
found such a mob as'every freeman in Penn
sylvania would have been proud to be a
member—such a mob, ’aS was Washington
.iW loatjpr. 1 . .
■ ■:iils tlus Senate to be the- judge of its own
acta? ' No, sir! There is-another power
that will judge the sovereign people of Penn
sylvania. ' ■ : ■
Mr. Penrose replied, and affirmed thaf.be
could show that his whole conduct in-the
i organization of the Senate was correct, and
i he would hereafter show that the principles
! advocated by the gentleman from P|iiladel
-1 phia, were dangerous and infamoits. He
then moved (hat the committee rise, report
progress, and-have leave to sit again, Which
was agreed to. Adjourned.
The Senate resumed? in committee of the
whole, the bill for the payment, &c. of the
troops, Hr. Coplan in the chair.
• Mr. Penrose again' took'the floor. His
speech was principally directed to Mr.
Brown. lie warned that Senator against
disseminating his.abominable, his infambns
principles! If he continued (said he) to ad-;
vacate Such' principles, and : the*y were -to
gain a foothold among the people, lie would
bring'ruin upon his country, and ruin upori
himself. * • .’ ’
“Hrdenbunced the'persons who Were as
sembled in the lobbies of the Senate at its
organization, as traitors to their country!' —
They wcre.not,’ (lie Said) the people of-this

Copiah in’the cliair.s' ;
' .Mr, Browp ; took,the' floor, and proceeded
to reply to ,sjlr. Speaker Penrose. He first,
took up. the former hlstory,of thd ,Speaker,-,
and proved, that the yciy principles he(Mr.i

-the Senator from Washington—-and the Se
nator from Frjinklln— anti the Senator.from
Lancaster, were, daily, in their seats. -.They
apprehended no danger! They saw no ap
pearance of a riot or disturbance!
' But the messages of Qoy. Ritn'cr; declared
thatthore was an armed .and infuriated, mob
in possession of the Halls of the Capitol !
Did he call iippn;the yeomanry ofDauphin
county, who: inhabit these hills and these
vallies? ‘ bid ho,'call upbn .the,yeomanry of
the” counties of Cumberland, of-Franklin,
and of Adams, the Senatoris .own .district,
to. come here and assist him to put down
that mob, and. restore peace and order hefe?
No, Sir! But he invoked to his aid the ar
my of the United States!, and when, after
repeated requisitions, he found he could not
seduce them from their duty—he sent to
Philadelphia county—fto the, very, heart of
the excitement—where the. injury of invaded
rights was most felt-—where every citizen
felt disfranchised; and where the passions of
the people were most inflamed, and brought
up here the very men most excited—the ve
rybutchers so much talkedabout, to quell
-the disturbance which they themselves had
created! Ves, sir, one of the prime leaders
of the mob—he with the six barrelled pistol,
at which the Speaker seems so much affright
ed, was brought up here at the head of the
; Mr. P’s. allusion to the arrest of Mr. Prav
was peculiarly happy:—One of the represen
tatives of the people, who is charged with
being one of the most active leaders of the
mob, and with whose name is associated all
that is brutal and ferocious, was seized on a
charge of-high treason!---Did hercsist-the
law? No,-sir! .Contrary to the adviee of
his friends, who feared that if he were .car
ried to prison, the outraged feelings of the
people might fose'all restraint, and the pri
son he demolished as-.tVenchmeu demolish

was added, to-the enormiltds of (he rest. He
surrendered and was
willing to be in a dungeon !
But his pursuaded him itn

During.sthfcrfiVee hours and a half, that
Mr. BfqivVncflccupied- the floor,- scarcely a.

lobbies, were as I predicted, crowded to ex
