view to their application to the approaching elec
tion, we will proceed to offer some comments on
the main question now nude? consideration.
The coming election is one of great importance
to the people , of. Pennsylvania, and never was the I
duty of the people, to examine the questions invol
ved, and decide correctly, more strongly suggested
by their interests, than at the present ttbu. It is. a
question of whether an honest and competent man, .
who has devoted himself faithfully to the promo
tion of the best interests of the people, and under
whose administration the public confidence is re
vived, and the Stale prospering in an unprecedented
degree, shall be removed to make place for a man
without any known qualifications for the place; ex
cept his adherence to a party without principles or
measures which they dare avow—which has on all
occasions heretofore shown itself ,incapable of ad
ministering the government without the perpetra
tion of the most signal abuies, for which the peo
ple hare, in every instance, ejected it from power
the.first opportunity. During the administration of
Francis R, Shunk, we assert boldly and fearlessly ;
tint the Executive department of our government
had been honestly and faithfully administered, with
an impartial and strict regard to the rights and in
terests of the - people;
. To this assertion 'we chal
lenge truthful andiuccessful contradiction frozrtany
responsible source. We invite any responsible
friend of Gen. Irvin, the Federal candidate, to point
to an official act of Gov. Shunk that has been at ra
riance with the interests of the people at large.
He has, on all occasions, advocated the necesity
of mamtan Ling the public faith unimpaired ; he has
urged the necessity of practicing the most rigid
economy, and of holding public 'offiCers to a strict
accountability, so as to enable the Treasury to meet
the demands upon it, and, ultimately to form a
sinking fund to„ liquidate a portion of the principal
of the public debt. During his. administration the
.accounts of public officers have been promptly set
tled, and more outstanding balance*: due 'from for
mer delinquents, collected than , during any preced
ing administration. 'He has advocated the neces-,
city of maintaining a sotaid currency ,Lund without
aiming at the destruction of the banking system,
be has adverted emphatically to the evils of its el
cesses, and urged upon the Legislature and the pet '.
pie the importance of restraining -and keeping it
with reasonable bounds, in order that its benefits
may be enjoyed, and its mischiefs avoided.
As a nieans calculated to effect this great object,
be has recommended that bankers, as well as oth
er corporators who engaged in business for private
gain, should be liable to pay their debts as other in
dividuals are. He thinks it unjust . that a set of in
dividuals should obtain a charter to carry on busi
-ness of s private nature; and, if successful, pocket
the profits of their enterprise, but if unsuccessful,
throw the loss, or at least a . ponion of it, on the com
munity at large. He does not believe that such a
system is calculated to make men either prudent
or honest, and that it is, in many respects, of kin to
the principles of the bankrupt act, which discharg
isl men, for all time, from the payment of their ilea
debts, even when they were abundantly able to pay.
He believes., that honesty industry and frugality.
and men engaged in such business as their means
and talents bring within their reach, much better
calculated to promote real indepenclence* and per
manent prosperity, than the aggregation oI capital
under the control of a few irresponsible corpora.
At all events, he believes that whatever sys-
tem may be adopted in regard to any interest or
busing, it should be regulated, by general laws,
.operating alike on all the citizens, of which all
are disposed may avail themselves ; and lhat the
whole system of partial legislation, by which spe- 1
cial privileges are conferred'on some which others ,
cannot obtain, is at war with the spirit of the Coo- ,
stitution. and the genius of our free institutions,
which regard the rights of all as equal.
In these views of public policy, we believe a
large majority of the people of the State of all par-1
ties concur : and were it possible to obtain a vote
in relation to them, irrespective of other party con- I .
siderations, we have no doubt they would be sus-
tinned by four-fifths of the citizens.
In regard to the views of General Irvin, the Fed- i
eral candidate, we are left in . the dark. He has
never, that we are aware of; avowed any views of
crate policy hintself, and as he is the representa
tive of a party whore settled policy it is to avow no
principles for the public eye, we can
. 00ly judge of i
hun by the conduct of those in whole company he '
It toriml. When in Con,,ereas, we !tan. he was the i
wilhag supporter of all the Federal arioeratir ipea- 1
suiw of the day, and followed humbly in the lead
of-the great - Retrlutionizers, - Henry Clay and l ',
John Sergeant. We know he voted for a Bank of'
the United State', and denounced John Tyler for
'Vetoing it. We know he voted for the Bankrupt
Act. and against its repeal. We know he was the
supporter of the distribution of the proceeds , of the
public lands--the abstraction of which from the
-public treasury have rendered it necessary;
Ito tax the poor man's tea and coffee to supply the
: deficit. We .know that he vas in favor of the most
ultrarotectire duties, for the benefit of special in
terests regardless of the other peat interests of the
country.. Whether he will avow' himself in Arils;
of any or all these Measures now, no Man can tell,
for it is characteristic of the party to which he be
loort, not only to deny their principles and mea,
sures, but their very name .and identity. We take
it for granted, however, that these are still faro : tile
Federal measures, and notwithstanding their -deni
al ( . 4 sortie of them, at least if they had the power
they would <wry them all into effect. If they have
really abandoned a Bank of the United Stales, why'
did they denounce John Tyler as a tram to Whig
' • t ea, for his veto of the Bank ?
re is of . one measure, however,' of policy,
. that ire know the Federal party is in favor Of, and
i on that we join issue mcetcheetrfuffY. On this mea

PUBLISHED EVERY WEDNESDAY, AT TOWANDA, BRADFORD C?UIfiTY, PA., BY E. S. GOODRICH I; SON.,
On the 9th of February last, Mr. Williamson,.a
Federal member from Chester county, , read in his
place • a bill entitled "An act to incorporate the
Pennsylvania Canal and Railroad Company, and
to provide a sinking fund for the public debt,"
which was laid on the table. On the 12th of the
same month, this bill was committed to the Com
mittee of Internal Improvements, and on the 17th,
it was reported to the Senate. On the 2241 it was
referred to the Committee ofthe Whole, and on the
same day reported back to the Senate, and on mo
tion !of Messrs. Carson and Johnsor, both conspic
uous Whigs, the bill was immediately read a sec
ond time, and on the question, shall it pass ! the
question was, on motion of Messrs. Bigler and
Dimmick, postponed for the present. On the 27th,
Messrs., Johnson and Smyser, both Whigs, moved
that the Senate proceed to the consideration of the
bill; when a motion was made by Messrs. Black
and Anderson to postpone, which was negatived by
a party vote—the Democrats voting in the affirma
tive imd the Federals in the negative. The ques
tion then recurring on the first section of the bill,
passed in the affirmative by a party vote—r, to
and then the remaining sections passed.
On the 2d March, it was ordered to be; trans
cribed for a third reading. On thh Bth Match it
passed a third reading by the following vote
Yeas—Messrs. Boas, Carson, Comman, Crabb,
Darragh, Darsie, Gillis, Harris, Johnson, Jordan,
Levis, Morrison, Rich, Richards, Sanderson. Smith,
Eimyser a Williamson and Gibbons. 19, all Federal
ists except Mr. Gillis. Nays—Messrs. Anderson,
Benner, Bigler, Black, Creac.raft, Hill, Hoover, Ma
son, Overfield, Potteiger and Rom, 11, all Demo
Now we unhesitatingly pronounce the passage
of this bill as the boldest and most reckless mea
sure and the greatest fraud on the people of this
State. that has been attempted since the passage of
the Bank of the United States in 1836. by a most
corrupt and foul combination. Mirk fellow citi
zens how these Federal.l.4slators attempt to de
ceive you when they contemplate a fraud upon the
people. The bill which contained !the charter!of
the Bank of the United States, was Ori,ginallyfr" an
act to repeal the State taxes and provide for a con
tinuation of the public improvements." The one
under consideration i was a bill to incorporate the
Pennsylvania Canal; and Railroad company, and
provide a sinking ; "wad for .titre paynted of the State
Mark the deception; the one was to repeal the
State taxes, the other to provide a sinking fond, but
both in reality calculated to rob the people and en
tail perpetual' taxation on them. Now fellOw citi
zens are you not curious to know what this mea
sure for providing a sinking fund to pay the State
debt was. We will tell you. It was an act to take
from you the control of sour whole line of public
improvements fiom Philadelphia to Pittsburg, in
. Coltunbia and Portage railways, and
to place them under the control of a company lor
the miserable pittance of between seven and eight
million of dollars at most. That is the whole line
was to be valued at twenty millions of dollars, and
from a stock to that amount in shares of one htm
drecl dollars each, ten milliona of which were to be
sold to individuals and paid for in State stocks
which were then worth not more than seventy dol
lars in the hundred. At this tate the coat to the in
dividual stockholders of the ,pne half, would not
have exceeded seven millioneof dollars. By the
provision of the bill the individual stockholders
were to receive five per cent on the amount of their
stock before the State should - receive any dividend
whatever. After payment of the expenses and five
per cent to the individual stockholders, then the
State was to come in for her dividend on the dock
retained,but it provided that in no event could she re
ceive more that five per cent: If the profits of the
company should ever exceed five per cent on the
whole capital, then the surplus was to go to the in
dividual stockholders. and this its authors had the
impudence to call an act providing a sinking fund
• for the payment of the State debt.
But the bill contained other Still more extraordT
i nary provision- we cannot advert to in de
tail' such as coaerring on the company, power to
construct lateral railroads, and canals, and also au
thority_to become transporters and establish lines of
steamboats on the Ohio river. Now how did it
happen that this bill was "defeated. It passed the
Senate and was sent to the House of Reptesenta
tir4, on the loth of Mawh. On the lath Match be-
ing S.aturday, and the day of final adjournment be•
ing tized on Tuesday the 16th, he Hottse proceed
ed to the consideration of the bill in the afternoon.
and the federal members attempted to force it duo'
the House without debate in amendment under the
previous question, which they were only prevented
'from doing by the energy and determination of the
minority, who finding that the inajority was deter
mined to perpetrate an act, which would rob the
people of their property and inflict an irreparable
injury upon the Commonwealth, tesitifed to all the
rights and privileges which the rules of the' Howe
afforded them,.and thereby prevented final sedan
wad the bout of adjournment attired:. On Mon
day other business intervened and the bill could not
be taken up out order without two thirds 'wee
lag, and on Tuesday the Legislature adjourned.—
Thus was the consonunation of this ontre upon
the intentsb of the people, prevented, and for which
the Democratic members were denounced re , 'in
it.'s and blackguards by a liming Federal 'paper
of this place.
nett year we feel aligned that the. pudic
works will net a million of dollars. and what their
value may be twenty-five yam` hence, with &sin
creasing population and mortices of the country,
no man can now tell.
To this measure then the Federalists are pledged
on the record, and if theyrz a m obtain a majority
in the Legislature, and a pliant Governor of kin
dred 'feeling in the person of tieneral Irvin, we
have a right to anticipate its convumitation 'nest
lu ...proestiou to ttuz.. Gov, ;lurk has
recommended that the net tells tithe putgicaworks,
together with the present taxes on real and , person
al estate, be pler, d to the payment of the intereet
on the public debt and to the creation of a sinking
feral for the payment of a portion of the principle,
and has shown in the most satisfactory manner that
the debt can be so far diminished within a reason
able time, as to allow of a material reduction of the
present taxes. Here, fellow-citizens, are two dis
tinct lines of policy presented. fit is for you to de
cide which you will prefer.
Is it not, fellow.eilieerus, most extraordinary that
in a party embracing so much talent as the Feder
alists clan that they have on all occasion when
in possession of power, shown themselves incapa
ble of administering the government 1 1 , It has been
so in regard to the General Government, as well as
in, our own State. They have been aptly called
"The party of the Incapables." In 11833, when
they obtained power by a division of the Democra
tic party, they outraged the public feeling in the re
chatter of the Coked States Bank, and other dan
gerous measunts, until they closed their career in
the crowning scene of the Buckshot war. And last
winter when accident placed powex'in their hands,
so far as the Legislature was concerned, they only
distinguished' themselves by attempting to give
away the public improvements and passing some
corporation acts, and foreign divorce bills for itin
erant applicants over the veto of the Governor.

The lihtory el Bread.
An antiquarian might make himself immortal
writing a history of bread. The thing has been
tried without sum*. De Genet has attempted to
trace the successive steps by which men were led
to the discovery of bread making. As yet nothing
dednite is known on the subject. The use of un
leavened bread was general in the days of Abra
hazfi ; and it is equal!y true that leavened bread
was common in the times of Moses, for they prohi
hitig the eating of the Paschal lamb with such bread. .
The Greek's supposed they were the first to disco
ver the tut of making bread. Some writ* think
they were indebted for the art to the Egyptians and
Phonicians, who had early settled among them.—
Grinding corn by hand mills, was first practiced in
Egypt and Greece. For years the Romans had no
other method of manufacturing flour than by crush
ing roasted corn in mortars. During the Macedo
nian war public bakers Were for the first time es
tablished in Rome and from them the knowledge
went through the south of Europe.
Yeast to raise the bread, according to Pliny, was
used by the Germans , and Gauls before it was
known in Rome, where bread was leavened by
mixing the new dough with the old. • Yeast was
not used in France until the end of the 17th centra
-1 ry. When it first became general, the Medical
faculty pronounced it injurious to health, and the
use of yeast was prohibited under a heavy- penalty.
The bakers; finally, by appeals to the mass, had
the law repealed. •
Daring the reign of Henry VIII, the gentry had
wheat for their own table, "but their households
and poor neighbors'' had to content themselves with
rye, barley, and oats. In 1596 rye bread and oats
formed most of the dim at servants even in some of
the reigning families. In 1626, barley was the
common food of the people.
How changed the times Wheat bread is now
universal. Batley is only used to a limited . extent
except by brewers and distillers, and oats are *-
played in this country only for feeding horses;
In 1720 a field el eight acres hi wheat was sown
in Scatland j and was so great a curiadty that it ex.
cited the attention of all Edinburgh. As lice as
1775, no wheaten bread could be met with in the
country places of Scotland. Oat cakes and barley
bannocks were universally eaten. In 1804 there
was not a-Jamie public baker in the city of Man
chimer. Bake; - Houses have been common in this
country for more than a century—Rochester I.

The Ten-Gate •t We.
We are all on a jottmey. The world through
which we ore passing is in some respects like a
irtiipke--all along which Vice and Folly hare,
erected toll-gates for the accomodation of those who
choose to call as they go—and dye are very few
of all the host of travellers whoo'do not step tem
sionally a little at some one or another of them—
and consequently pay mote at letia to the toll-gath;
eters. Pay more or less, we say, because there is
a great variety as well in amount as" in the kind of
toll exacted at these different stopping places.
Pride and fashion take heavy tolls of the puce.
Many a man has become a begpr by paying at
their gates. The ordinary rates they charge are
heavy, and the read that way is none of the bed.
Pleasure offers a very smotb, delightful road to
the outset_ She tempts the traveler with many
fair promises, and wins thousands—but she takes
without mercy. Like an artful robber, the allures,
nil she gets bet tim in her power, and then strips
him of health and of money, and turns him off ; a
miserable object, into the very word and , must
ragged road of Lite.
Intemperance plays the part of a sturdy villain.
He's the very worst toll-gatherer on the road, for
he not only geti irdni his ql.stouiets their wooer
