Departure of the Star of the West
with Reinforcements.
Niw YORX, Jan. 7-— The Steamer Star ef
the West wae chartered ly order of Gen.
Scott, and sailed to-day with a full supply j
of provisions for Ma j. Anderson, and two :
hundred and fifty men, under Lieut. Bartlet. j
The Steamer Star of the Westj
fired into by the Rebels.
CHARLESTON. J*n 9ih, 1861.
Tbe steamship Star of the West, while en
deavoring to enter Charleston harbor about
daylight this morning, was opened fire upon
by the Garrison on Morris Island, and also
by Fort Moultrie. Toe steamer put about |
and went to Bea. The belief is that no inju- ,
ry was sustained by either tbe boat or those
on board. Fort Sumpter did not respond to
the fire from the South Carolinians. Lieut.
Hall, ot Fort Sumpter, came over to the city
about 11 o'clock this morning, bearing a flag
of truce. lie repaired to the quarteaa of the
Governar, followed by a crowd of citizens.—
He was in secret communication with the j
Governor and council for two hours. The
object of bis mission is not known. It is ;
supposed that it related to the firing on the
Bur of thf West.
To the Military of Centre County.
The Military of Centre County are among
tbe best drilled, acd the best equipped, in
tbe State. Wo have long felc a just pride in j
eur citizen soldiery, believing them to be as
brave and resolute a set of fellows as could j
be found anywhere. Until now, our Cornpa j
nits have been used as mere ornaments, but !
the time has arrived when they can be of
use. In thirty days from this writing, the ;
Troops will be on tbeir march from Pennsyl- |
vania to the seat of war. and-shall it be said
that Centre County's sons are not as chival
rous and loyal to the Constitution and the
Union, as the people of other portions of the
"old Commonwealth ?" No ! DO, they would
spurn, with scorn, such an imputation upen
Ibeir courage and patriotism. Centre coun
ty will do her whole duty in the contest for
the Union, but let ber not procrastinate. —
Gov. Curtin is every day receiving scores of
applications from Companies, all over the j
Btate, asking to be put on the list first. Cap- j
tains of Centre county, what art ynu doing?
Bend in your applications quick, or you will ;
be too late. There will be, at least, seventy
thousand men who will tender their services
to the State. Not one-half of these will bo
accepted, for the Government will not need
them. Among those that are accepted, we
would like to see the Companies of Centre
Uounty. Remember, soldiers, the rule in
war is, "first come first served." If then,
you want a hand in tbe glorious work of
•erushiog-treason and rebellion in "our dear
native land." you must apply at once, or you
Will be too late. Send in your applications
immediately, and "Andy" will do his native
County the honor to place ber sons high on
the list. Capt. Dunlap and Copt. McFar

"Cameron Infantry" and the "Dragoons' "
applications filed right away, so tfcy will

The Resurrection of the Government—
The First Step Towards Peace.
We find in tha New York Times of Janua
ry 3d, an able article under the above bead,
from which we make the following extract:
"We pay all due honor to those Northern
men, and especially to those Northern Re
publicans, who have insisted upon the para*
mount duty of saving the Union, even at the
sacrifice of something of party principle, and
much more of party feeling. We do not un
derrate the courage nor the profound regard
for the public good which has prompted Mr.
Thurlow Weed, in this State, to throw the
whole weight of his political influence into
she scale of compromise and conciliation,
nor do we doubt in the least that his effort
will do good. But for any distinct, practi
cal compromise the time has not arrived. The
elements for such an adjustment as would
bring permanent peace to the country, (and
! neither section wants any other,) do not yet
; exist. No man and no,body of men Las any
; power to pledge the North, nor is there any
authority clothed with power to act for the
South. It is not for thia Congress to say
| whether the Missouri line shall be restored,
! —nor ha* anybody the right to say that if
rsstored, the South would accept it as a final
end of the "irrepressible conflict." All these
questions, —and all others growing out of
this em rgency, belong to the coming Admin
istration. The people have committed to
j them the direction and control of their "af-
I fairs. They will be responsible for the peace
of the country, —and for that eesential and
equal justice to every State and to every sec
tion by which alone peace can be secured.
But men say this will be too late. The
South will not wait. The Border States will
be dragged into the maelstrom of disunion
1 before :bat time arrives. Those States may
as well understand, that they have duties to
perform in this matter as well as the North,
i They have quite as much at stake as we have,
i Their interest in the Union is as real and as
! profound as ours. And they must uuder
| take the control of their own conduct, at
i least to this extent, if they hae the slight—
! est desire for the preservation of their rights
i or tho protection of their interests, in or out
\of the Union. The dissolution of this Union,
j —the overthrow of this Government, is not a
| thing to be accomplished in a day or in a
month. It is not to be tha hot achievement
of momentary wrath, Dor the instant result
| of a vote in Conventions or mass meetings.
The Southern States may plungs themselves
into fearful perils and greatly embarrass their
own freedom of action, by the rash measures
they may adopt. But that is at least quite
as much their affair as ours, —and they have
duties to perform in eonnection with it, quite
as imperative as any that devolve upon us.
We are in favor of all just and proper
measures of compromise made at the right
time, acd on the right basis. But we die
| trust the wisdom of thrusting upon the hot
j rage of the active Disunionists at the pres
; ent moment, promises and pledges which we
: have no right to give, and which they have
nut the slightest disposition to take. What
ever is to be done on either side, should be
done with dignity and a deliberate weighing
of consequences. When this controversy is
settled we wish it to be finally and decisively
settled. There never will be a better time
for insisting upon such a settlement than
now. The country is rich, —the hearts of
the people are prepared for it, —and all men
of all parties and all sections desire to know,
onoe for all, what are to be the permanent
relations of Slavery to the Federal Gorern
ment. But let us have no patch-work,—no
hasty, crude popping of the constitutional
fabric. Let us have nothing rushed through
in the heat of a panic, to be deplored and
execrated by either party when the clouds
■hall have blown over. Whatever is done
must bo done with deliberation, —after a full
study of the whole case, and with a close and
complete knowledge of the public sentiment
in every section of the country.
In onr judgement the present publio senti
ment in nearly all the Southern States is the
result of an utter misapprehension of the
principles and purposes of the Republican
Party. It has been brought about by the
most steady, relentless and infamous crusade
of falsehood that ever disgraced the history
of any civilized country. So long as that
feeling prevails, no compromise can be made
which will be worth the paper on which it is
wri tec. That misapprehension must be te
movid, as a preliminary step to nny adjust
ment which will last a year, or give the
•lightest satisfaction to either section. It
could be removed at once, if the intelligent
men of the Southern States had the courage
to te>l what they know to be tbe truth about
the Republican Party, and tbe man who has
been chosen President of the United States.
But as long as they assent in silence to the
infamous falsehoods by which buth are slan
dered , —as Jong as they lend themselves to
the schemes of the conspirators by repeating
their Shibboleth, and echoing their epithets,
| and countenancing their bald and shameless
perversions of truth ; —as long as they join
in suppressing the real sentiments, and reit
erated declarations of Mr. Lincoln, and per
mit tbe most glaring forgeries to be palmed
off upon their people as the genuine exprea
sion of his opinions ; —so long as they allow
; even their slaves to bear tbe Republicans
| spoken of as blacks,— and the Presidentelect
as pledged to set them free, —they must not
; expect, nor do they deserve, that we of the
North shall assume all the burden of pre
serving a Union which is worth far more 10
them than it is to us, — end which is imperil
ed only by their flagrant neglect of tbe most
; solemn duties that devolve upon citizens of a
! free Republic.
According to present appearances, there is
; but one thing which will dissipate these false
apprehensions of Republican ascendency,—
and that is, actual experience of a Republi
can Administration, Six months of the ac
tual practical Administration of affairs under
Mr, Lincoln will do more to allay the South
ern panic,—to refuta tbe falsehoods which
! have wrought this wrong, and to restore peace
and harmony to the country, than ail the
oompromiese that groundless wrath on the
on* bend cap effort from irrational fears en
the otbw."
The committee of the border states, inclu
dirg Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Ken
tucky, Missouri, and North Carolina, from
the South, and New Jersey, North, to-day
agreed upon propositions for an adjustment
of pending difficulties, by amending the Con
stitution, follow:
1. Recommending a repeal of all tbe per
sonal liberty bills.
2. That of the fugitive slave law be amen
ded for the preventing of kidnapping, and so
as to provide for tbe equalization of the com
missioners' fee, &c.
3. That the Constitution be so amended as
to prohibit any interference with slavery in
any of the states where it now exists.
4. That Congress shall not abolish slavery
in ths southern dockyards, arsenals, &0,, nor
in the District of Columbia without tbe con
sent of Maryland, and the consent of the dis
trict, nor without compensatoin.
5. That Congress shall not interfere with
the interstate slave trade.
6. That there shall be a perpetual prohib
ition of the African slave trade.
7. That the line of 36 degrees 30 minutes
shall bo run through all the existing territo
ry of the Uoitsd States ; that in all north of
that line slavery shall be prohibited, an that
south of that line neither Congress nor the
territorial legislature shall hereafter pass any
law abolishing, prohibiting, or in any man
ner interfering with African slavery, and
that when any tsrritoiy containing a suffi
cient population for one member of Congress
in any area of 60,000 square miles, shall ap
ply for admission as a state, it shall be ad
mitted, with or without slavery, as its con
stitution may determine.
The compromise proposed by tbe commit
tee of border states is not accepted by tho
3outh. Tbe South will not conseht to leav
ing tbe territories south of thirly-six thirty
to be freo or slave as tbe people'may elect,
believing that by leaving the question open
the scene of Kansas will be revived, and the
country overrun by anti-slavery people thro'
tbe agency of the northern emigrant aid so
cieties. Tbey demand the unequivocal rec
ognition by the North that slavery shall ex
ist in territory south of tbe proposed line un
til it shall be divided into states, when, in
their sovereign capacity as states, tbey may
alter or confirm their status in regard to
slavery. In other words, all territory North
shall be considered free, and all South slave,
unless the- people shall choose to change
their condition after their government shall
be clothed with state authority. Nothing
else will be accepted by the South ; and as
false impressions may be formed from the
favor in which the propositions of tbe border
committee are received in some quarters, it
is proper that this explanation.should go be
i jre tbe country as soon as possible.
The republican members of the House
caucubsed in the Post Office committee room
again to-day, upon tbe present state of af
fairs, Speaker Pennington in ths chair, —
There was a full attendance.
Tbe unfinished buisness of yesterday was
resumed, being the report of Mr, Hale, of
Pennsylvania, from th 9 sub committee of the
border siatos. who said that be believed the
members of his committee representing the
border slave states would agree to his prop
osition; that all the territory of tbe United
States north of thirty six degrees thirty
minutes should be free, aDd all south of that
line to remain as it is, with liberty to ths
people to prganizo into states whenever
they plcnse, with or without slavery. lie
was of opinion that it might be better for tbe
North to tcke this proposition than to pre
cipitate the country into war.
Mr. Howard, of Michigan, said be objected
to any compromise, because be believed it to
be an acknowledgement of an error, which
be would not concede, He defended the
motives of the republicans in tbe committee
of thirty-three, and expressed the opinion
that they had done nothing that could be in
terpreted as a surrender of thsir principles.
Those who understood Mr. Adams' posi'ion
do not believe this.
Mr. Lovejoy, of Illinois, speaking of the
malconteuts of the slave states, and the pro*
posed compromise of dividing the territory
between freedom and slavery to tbe Pacific,
said : " There never was a more causeless
revolt since Lucifer led bis cobarts of apos
lfcte angels against tha throne of Gad, but I"
never beard that the Almighty proposed to
compromise the matter by allowing the reb
els to kindle tbe fires of hell south of tha ce
eatial meridian of thirty-six thirty."
This outburst of tbe eccentric member
from Illinois created a deal of sensation and
some movement.
Mr. Sherman stated that, as a member of
the border sub-committee from tbe border
states, he could neither vote for the proposi
tion ptoposed by Mr. Hale, nor that propos
ed by Mr. CritiendeD, to restore the Missouri
line and extend it to the Pacific. lie was
also opposed to the compromise to prevent
the abolition of slavery in the district of Cos
lumbia. While be did not wish to abolish
it now, be was opposed to yieldiog up tb e
right of CoDgress to do so at any future pe
Mr. Grow, of Pennsylvania, expressed
himself decidedly opposed to all compromi
ses. lie asked what better platform the
North or the South could bav9 to stand upon
than the Union, the Constitution and the
laws? The republican party has elected a
President in accordance with the forms of
the Constitution, aud is entitled to fair play.
If his administration of the government is
resisted by those opposed to Mr. Lincoln, tbe
crime will be theirs. When the republicans
took their position, before the election, they
knew they would have to meet this state of
things, and now they should not put the bur
den upon posterity.
Messrs. Uickman and Stevens, of Penn
sylvania, and Case, of Indiana, opposed all
compromises, in speeches Couched in unmis
takable language.
Mr. Petit, of Indiana, from the sub-com
mittee of border states, said he had opposed
all the propositions in that committee exceat
the one proposed by Mr. Hale, upon wnK
he did not vote. He defended the border
states for their efforts to arrange matters.
What President Fillmore Did.
Some ten yeare ago, when President Fill
more occupied the White House, South Car
olina got up her secession movement because
California was admitted into the Union,
without being cut in two, making one a slave
aDd the other a free State. Now, though Mr.
Fillmore was an amiable man, chock-full of
peace principles, what did he do? Why he
quietly put into Fort Muultrie a strong body
of troops, without asking their leave. The
gay and gallant Palmettos awoke one fine
morning and tound this awkward fact sud
denly storing them in the face ; whereupon
their chivalric Governor waxed wroth and
applied to President Fillmore for an expla
nation. '"Sir," was the answer, "tbe Presi
dent of the United States is not responsible
for bis official conduct to the Governor of
South Carolina." The amiable President,
then in office, did not particularly affect leo
nine or heroic qualities; but he understood
his duty to the Constitution he was sworn to
support, and his vigorous mode of confront
ing rebellion nipped it in the bud to the
great satisfaction of everybody exeept the
combustible and explosive Palmettos. If
the pusillanimous "old public functionary,"
row at the bead of the government, had bad
the foreeast, discretion and spirit, two
months ago, to do his plain duty, he would
not now be the ohj?ct of universal contempt
and derision.— Telegraph.

From Dr. J. G. Green, of Chicago.
Your Pills huvo had a long trial in my practice, and I
hold them in esteem as one of the best aperients 1 have
ever found. Their alterative effect upon the liver makes
them an excellent remedy, when given in small doses for
bilious dysentery and diarrhoea. Their sugar-coating
makes them very acceptable aud couveuiuut for the use
of women and children.

I find one or two large doses of your Pills, taken at the
proper time, are excellent promotives of the naturul score

a growiDg tendency >.n this age to appropriate th
nihst expressive words of other languages, and
after a wi.ile to ineooporate them into our own f
thus the word Cephalic, which is from the Greek,
signifying " for the head," is now becoming pop
ularized in connection with Mr. Spalding's great
Headache remedy, but it will soon be used in a
more general way, and the word Cepalic will be
come as common as Electrotype and many others
whose distiction as foreign words has been w. rn
away by common usage until they seem " native
and to the manor born."

JIGG- HEADACHE is the favorite sign hy which
na'ure makes known any deviation whatever from
the natural state of the brain, and viewed in thia
light it may be looked on as a sa'eguard intended
to give notice of disease which might other vise
•scape attention, till too. late to be remedied ; and
its indications should never be neglected. Head
aches may be classified under two names, via :
Symptomatic and Idiophatic. Symptomatic Head
ache is exceedingly common and is the precursor
of a great variety of diseases, among which are
Apoplexy, Gout, Rheumatism and all febrile dis
eases. In its nervous form it is sympathetic of
diseases of the stomach constituting tick head
ache, of hepathic disease constituting biliont head
ache, of worms, constipation and othet disorders
of the bowels, as well as reDal and uterine affec
tions. Diseases of the heart are very frequently
attended with Headaches ; Anosmia and plethora
are also affections which frequently occasion head
ache. Idiopathic Headache it also very common,
being usually distinguished by the ratne of iter
vuut headache, sometimes coming on suddenly in
a state of apparently sound health and prostrat
ing at once the mental and physical energies, ami
in other instances it comes on slowly, heralded by
depression of spirits or acerbity of temper. In
most instances the pain it in the front of the head,,
over one or both eyes, and sometimes provoking
vomiting ; under this class may alio b named

the lighter evils of which costiveness is the usual

Spalding has sol d two millions of bottles of his
celebrated Prepared Glue and it is estimated that
each bottle saves at least ten dollars worth ot
broken furniture, thus making an aggregate of
twenty millions of dollars reclaimed from total
loss by this valuable invention. Having made bis
Glue a biusebold word, he now proposes to do the
world still greater service by euri ng all the aoh

as good as his Glue. Headaches will soon vanish
