The Apportionment Bill Vetoed.
The infamous hill passed by the loco

that we cannot see how any man making
pretensions to honesty could vote for it—
has received its quietus at the hands of
Governor Johnston. We regret that we
did not receive a copy of the message in
time lor to-day's paper, (it having only
come to hand last evening,) but a svnopsis
of its contents in another column will sat
isfy any man, whether whig or locofoeo.
that a more villainous and unprincipled ef
fort to disfranchise a large portion of the j
voters of Pennsylvania was never made.
We trust Governor Johnston will freely j
use the SLEDGE HAMMER to demolish all ;
fabrics of this kind erected by the old j
party hacks in the Legislature, until a fair i
bill is passed. We care not what majority •
locofocoism may obtain under a bill in 1
which some regard is paid to the ratio of
representation, but until they do pav some .
regard to that, as they have sworn to do.
let there be no hesitation in the Executive
:o use the power vested in him.

1 HE WEATHER. —We have had rain,
hail and snow this week, and on several
mornings ice was formed an eighth of an
inch thick. The Almanacs call this weather
spring, but there has been thus far so deci
ded a feeling of winter about it, that some
persons think the almanac makers have
made a mistake of a month or two in their
calculations. To-day is pleasant enough,
but will it continue so ? is asked on all
sides. We don't know, but nous verrons.
rr The Democrat suggests that provi
sion be made for publishing the amendment
to the Constitution in papers of both par
ties. This would be no more than right,
and we would like to see ample provision
made to carry out the measure. The Con
stitution limits the Secretary of State to
one paper in each county, but of course
the legislature could appropriate funds to
liave it published in two or three.
What SIOO,OOO nay Do.
The Montpelier (Vt.) Journal, in allud
ing to the proposed Cotton Factory in Al
bany, savs:
' J
" A capital of SIOO,OOO is to give direct labor
to 200 people. On the average, each one of
those persons will support at least one more—as
wife or child ; and so this moderate amount of
capital is to add 400 to the population of Albany.
Nor is this all : to hare a population of 400,
buildings must he had—to build and furnish
these houses and clothe the inmates, mechanics
must be had ; to feed them, doctor them, educate
them, and defend them, a new demand is made
for farmers, traders, doctors, teachers, lawyers
and so forth artd so on ; all adding still more
to the population and the business of the place
where such a factory is located."
It is this cumulative influence of do
mestic manufactures, says a cotcmporary .
which gives thern their national importance.
There are hundreds of thriving cities ami
villages in this country which owe their
existence to manufactures. Is it not bet
ter for the country that our people should
contribute to the support of these localities,
and the hundreds of thousands who inhabit
them, than tiiat they should support a like
number of towns and operatives in foreign
countries ? An honest answer to this
question is all that is required to secure an
admission of the wisdom and utility of the
Whig doctrine of protection.
Mr. Carl vie, in his latest publication, con
demsthat "general morbid sympathy,"
of hearty hatred for scoundrels, which is threat
ening to drown human society as in deluges, it
may truly be questioned if the interference of
what is ealied " humanitarianism" with the
course of justice, wa ever productive of much
f.otofoto Office Holder*.
To read the locofoeo papers, every one
would suppose that none of that kith or
kin held olfice under Cien. Taylor. Tru
man Smith of Connecticut has made some
inquiry into the matter, and in a recent
speech in the United States Senate showed
j that the number of clerks in the several
Departments on the 4th March, 1849. were
; thus distributed :
In the State Department, 22 3
" Navy Department, 34 15
" War Department, 2] 09
" Interior Department, 93 34
" Treasury Department, 259 76
44 P. O. Department, 47 2
476 156
I.oeofoco preponderance, 320
On the Ist of January, 1850, ten months
afterwards, the following is the table :
In the State Department, 11 15
44 Navy Department, 25 23
" War Department, 19 30
44 Interior Department, 58 80
44 Treasury Department, 202 132
41 P. O. Department, 35 14
350 294
Locofoco preponderance, 56
Or two hundred and sixty-four removals in
the Departments at Washington since the
fourth of March, 1849, when Gen. Taylor
took the Presidential chair. In reply to a
question by Mr. Dodge, of lowa, Mr.
Smith said that he had obtained his infor
mation from persons intimately acquainted
in the Departments ; and 110 doubt the
statement approximates the truth. This
statement has also been made in the House,
and thus far not a member of Congress
has attempted to refute it.
The Democrat is congratulating it
self on the progress " democracy" is ma
king. and cites Connecticut, Ohio, and
Kentucky as instances in which the people
reposed confidence in locofocoism as exhib
ited in the recent elections. In Connecti
cut and Ohio the locofocos have for some
years intrigued with the fag-ends of all
factions from Mormonism down to ultra
abolitionism, while in Kentucky it is closely
allied to slavery. At Washington, too,
Borland and Foote and Benton and Foote,
<kc., have been exhibiting specimens of
union and harmony which show much good
feeling and a remarkable similarity of dis
position to plant fists between each other's
sky-lights. If our neighbor calls these
coalitions and brawls the triumphs of de
mocracy, he will some day wake up and
find the party on a 44 bust."

gratifying to the friends of the Pennsylvania
Railroad to learn, says the Daily News, that the
passenger traffic alone has already exceeded the
estimates. The income on that portion of the
work which is open for use, during the last ten
days, exceeds $10,000; being over SI,OOO per
day; with every prospect of an immense in
crease, when the connection with the inclined
plane at IfoJlidaysburg is completed. We un
derstand it is in contemplation to open the road

Court of Quarter Sessions of Jllffliu County.
The entire, week was taken up with Sessions
I business. In the case of the Commonwealth vs.
! Rarick and Marks for burning ShulPs ten-pin
' alley, (noticed in our last,) the prisoners were
sentenced to seven months imprisonment in the
Eastern Penitentiary, and.to pay a fine of five
dollars and costs of prosecution. Marks made
a statement in Court of the whole transaction,
acknowledging that he had set fire to the build
ing, but implicated the principal witness against
j them as the instigator of the act.

, Marks, Geo. Rarick, J no. Spiece SfJat. MWtal.
i These parties were indicted, under different
! counts, for riot and malicious mischief. M'En

tion of Spiece, found guilty as indicted. 'I he
latter was found guilty of riot. Rarick and
Marks were sentenced to pay a fine of §5 —

' bill by Hopper against Robison.

Commonwealth vs. James Cupples, Jr.
The prisoner, a boy but 13 years old, was in
dicted for feloniously breaking into the store of
JOHN 11001 ES, and taking therefrom sundry pen
kives and other articles. The case was rather
j clearly made out, it having been shown that
considerable tact and ingenuity had been exhib
ited in effecting an entrance, the shutters having
been bored in the most approved style ; but in
consideration of his youth and probably a doubt
as to the felonious intentions of the boy, the
Jury returned a verdict of Not Guilty. A P.

J. W. PARKER for defence.
Commonwealth vs. Martin Ilanley.
Hanley was indicted for stealing a lot of dry
goods from the store at Freedom Forge. Drs.

case will be disposed of at an adjourned Court
to be held shortly.

For the Gazette.
MR. EDITOR —Please call the attention of
those gentlemen who lately hold a meeting at
the Town Hall and resolved to resist the dese
cration of the Sabbath in our woods and by
places, to the fact that the Court of Quarter
Sessions, including sundry Judges, county offi
cers, lawyers, jurors, Ac., were in session on
Sunday morning last between two and three
o'clock, transacting common week-day business.
Now here's a fair chance in our midst for show
ing a proper zeal for the fourth commandment,
without leaving the limits of our borough, and
a respectable number of whom suitable exam
ples may be made. Come, gentlemen, no back
ing out now.
hut itf>t an t 'ltraht. j
In the Senate on the 9th, nearly the whole of
the morning session was consumed in the consid
eration of an " Omnibus" bill from the House.
It is very long, containing fifty-eight sections,
treating on a variety of subjects. Its passage
will create most important changes in a number
of laws, of which the people will know nothing
until they are passed.
In the House, a message was received from
Governor Johnston, returning with his objec
tions, the bill apportioning the State into Sena
torial and Representative Districts.
His first objection is made by comparing the
apportionment of Fayette with that of Dauphin
county, the latter having but one representative,
with a larger number of taxables than Fayette,
which has two. The second objection is that
Allegheny, with 28,547 taxables has but five
members, while Westmoreland, with only 11,-
618, has three. The third is, that Schuylkill,
with 12,867 taxables, has but two representa
tives, while Berks, with 16,262, has four.
The fourth objection is, that Berks, with some
sixteen thousand taxables, has the same repre
sentation as Westmoreland, Schuylkill, Butler,
and Luzerne, with some 24,000 taxables. The
fifth objection is made by comparing Crawford
with Erie. The sixth objection is, that by the
representation allowed to Allegheny, Butler,
Lawrence, Dauphin, Eric and Schuylkill, which
are altogether allowed 11 members, 26,406 tax
able inhabitants are left unrepresented, accord
ing to the ratio fixed in the bill.
The seventh is that the counties of Adams,
Allegheny, Butler, Lawrence, Beaver, Dauphin,
Delaware, Erie, Indiana, Lebanon, Philadelphia
City, Somerset, Union and Lancaster, with 140,-
222 taxables, are allowed 25 members, whilst
the counties of Columbia, Sullivan, Crawford,
Fayette, Monroe, Wayne, Pike, Mercer, Venan
go, Warren, Mitllin, Montgomery, Susquehanna,
Wyoming, Westmoreland, York, Tioga, Elk,
McKean, and Clearfield, with only 105,000 tax
ables, are given the same number.
He refers to the representative district of
Clearfield, Elk and McKean, as having been
erected since the adoption of the Constitution,
and given a separate representation, whilst they
have a less numbe| of taxables than the ratio
fixed in the bill; consequently it is unconstitu
tional. He denounces the formation of double
districts as calculated to prevent an equal rep
resentation and as an anti-republican feature
which ought to be avoided.
He refers to the district composed of the
counties of Amrstrong, Jefferson, and Clarion,
where Clarion has 5067 taxables, which entitles
her to one member, with a small excess. Arm
strong and Jefferson have 8708 taxables, being a
much larger number than is required for two
members in Fayette, Westmoreland, Berks, and
Crawford. He thinks this might have been
avoided, as well as making a district of Cnm
bcrland, Perry, and Juniata counties, and one of
Mercer, Venango, and Warren.
The message goes on to point out the different
inequalities in the bill generally, and closes with
an expression of regret that the passage of the
bill should have been delayed until so nearly
tbe close of the session.
In the Senate,on the 10th,an apportionment
bill was reported, which makes the following
alterations from the one vetoed by the Governor:
Lancaster is made the 7th district, with two
Senators ; Northumberland, Columbia and Un
ion are made the 13th district, with one Sena
tor; Lycoming, Centre, Clinton and Sullivan
the 14th district, with one Semtor; Luzerne
and Wyoming the 10th district, with one Sen
ator; Bradford and Susquehanna the lfi'h dis
trict, with one Senator; Tioga, Hotter, M'Kean,
Elk ana Warren the 17th district, with one
Senator; Clarion, Venango. Mercer, Crawford
and Erie the lS:h district, with two Senators;
Armstrong, Indiana, Jefferson and Clearfield
the 24tb district, with one Senator; MifHin,
Huntingdon, Biair and Cambria the 25th dis
trict, with one Senator.
In the House of Representatives : Allegheny
is given six members, Armstrong one member,
Clearfield and Jefferson one member, Clarion
and Venango two members, Dauphin and Leb
anon three members, Fayette and Westmore
land four members, Lancaster four members,
Mercer and Crawford three members, Warreu,
M'Kean and Elk one member.
The House refused to consider the bill erect
ing the new county " Montour."
The resolution calling on the Canal Com
missioners to advance their opinion as to the
merits ot the Lill incorporating the Lebanon
Valley Railroad Company was defeated by a
majority of two votes.
The bill providing lor the regulation and con
tinuance of a system of education by common
schools came up in order, and passed second
reading. The Forest divorce bill also passed,
so amended as to give any Court of Common
Pleas in the Commonwealth cognizance of
the case—yeas 40, nays 28.
Mr. Campbell, the Clerk of the House of
Representatives, is moat dangerously ill. He

stand that .Mr. Thomas Johnston, of Martic
township, has been missing from his home
since the Ist inst., under circumstances
which are calculated to induce the belief
that he has been foully dealt with. He
left his residence on that day for the pur
pose of collecting money and making set
tlements with some of his neighbors. The
last person with whom he settled recollects
seeing a large sum of money in his pos
session. lie was afterwards seen by a
neighbor within a mile of his own dwel
ling, in which direction he was then riding
through a lane or path, which was secured
at both ends by bars and gates. His horse
was found in this enclosure on the follow
ing morning. The whole neighborhood
has been carefully searched since, but
no traces have been discovered of the
missing man. It is feared that he has been
waylaid and murdered by soinc one having
a knowledge that lie had a large sum ol
money in his possession, and his body
concealed in some way from discovery.
He was a man of industrious and temper
ate habits, and his circumstances were such
as to leave no motive for a voluntary ab
sence from his family and home.— /MU
