And the . State Temperance Convention which
met at Harrisburg on the 7,h day of June last,
among others passed the following resolutions :
Resnlved, That though the Legirda'ore forced a
different issue upon the friends of Temperance than
the one they asked for, we will nevertheless ac
cept it, but under the circumstances we will: not
consider it a final test of our rrengt upon this
point. '
Resolved, That as the question of Prohibition is
based upon the affections of an overwhelming ma
jority of the people of Pennsylvania, we most ear
nestly recommend to our friends throng,hout the
State to organize at once in their respective coon
ties, and use all lair and honorable ;beans not only
to increase the vote in favor of prohibition. but to
carry it by a triumphant majority at the ballot box
in October next.
The adoption by a yoke of the people of these
resolutions by an emphatic m: , jori , y, is important
to the beat interests ol humanity, a ,r 1 to our balm
ed Commonwealth. We therefore urge upon tho
friends of good order, that they take such measures
in 11124 respective counties; cities, bo'foughs, wards,
and districts as will secure a full yarn out at the
polls and the largest possible majority in favor of
this important measure. •
iYe respectlully urge upon the lithnils of Tem
perance arid a Prohibitory Law, thiat they make
this their only and great object at the October elec
tion; that they suffer no other issue to interfere
with their efforts in this cause; and we warn them
against permitting themselves to be drawn in 'o
entangling alliances with any of the political par
ties of the Jay, who desire only to use this great
popular and growing cause for the advancement of
their partisan views; to the successful carrying
out by the popular vote of these resolutions, and to
th)s only should temperance men tun! their mien
lion. Upon this everything depends. NoLegisla
tnre will dare to refuse to refuse the passage of a
bill in the face of the demands of a majority of the
voters, fairly expressed at the ballot boxes; and we
havi the pleasure of assuring our 'temperance
friends - that we are satisfied that any one of the
distinguished gentlemen who are candidates for

There were exaggered rumora in circulation yes
terday afternoon in regard to a terrible calamity at
the Mahattan Gas Winks, at the foot of Fourteenth
Fueet, East River Onr reporter visited the scene
at the accident last evening, and found that the
rem( of the large building in process of erection by
the company had !alien in, between the hours of I
and 2 o'clock in the afternoon, and buried a num
ber of woukmen in the mine.
The following, are the deteils of the disaster, as
near as rook! he aocertained
The Eighteenth ward pollee were early on the
rpm. arol when they arrived, a scene of almost in•
extricable cnnfu•inn was presented—wives and
children anxiously inqrtiring for their husbands and
fatheis, and workmen searching for their comrn,!er.
The poliJe, who were anon joined by those anther
wards, formed a cordon round the ruins, and the
laborers went vigorou•ly , to work to r the
dead and wounded. The body of Cornelius Wyck.
off, foreman of the bricklayer., (residing, at %Vit.
hamsburg,) was the first found, then that of Patrick
Shea. of 259 West Eeighteenth at., and then that of
Jas Gilhooly, both masons.
The names of the' maimed, seriously. severely,
and wounded, are as follows: John Flan
tragan, both leg. broken ; Robert Jank, m e leg and
boll' arms broken; Daniel Suilia an. injured intern
ally, taken to the Bellevue hospital, with scarcely a
hope of his recovery ; Jernes Sullivan, iliLgh
broken ; George White, Thomas Kelly, Thomas
'McGuire, Win. Squires, and James Mahoney
These were all internally bruised, and cut extern
ally, but with no, limbs fractured. Petrick Caroll,
William Harris, and Sides Burns, were badly burnt,
with internal bruises, and had cuts externally
Henry Fmigan and Thomas Mulligan were slight
ly bruised and cm externally. All the men, with
the exception of Daniel Sullivan, were taken to their
respective home..
During the excavatinns, beneath a shell as it is
termed—in other—words, a furnace—were discnv.
eted eight masons and fuer laborers. (nrwe of the
latter of whom had his thigh broken ) They Rate
that at the moment of the fall of this building, they
heard a loud crack, and nne of them looking op. he
saw the vast columns bending the roof descending.,
as it were, in one vast sheet He showed to his
campanions, and they, with one accord, rushed for
the shell, and thus escaped the almost inevitable
death which seemed impending over them.
When all the bodies which could be found were
removed from the ruins, the men were mastered,
and it was at first supposed that more were beneath
the rubbish ; but it was eventsfiy ascertained that
all the injured were recoverett.
Two horses were also crushed under the ruins
The eslimu'ed cost of the building is between $3O,
000 and 5.10,000.
The actual and precise cause of the falling of the
roof could not be ascertained with any degree of
certain'y. The building in coarse of erection VCR! ,
shout four hundred feet long by about two hundred
[(set wide, with brick v:alls and a sla.e roof. sup
ported by an iron frame work. The Plate had been
put on the north aide, and some suppose that its
weight caused the Mot to careen to the north, and,
by thus losing as balance, fell drawing the walls
with it Others assert that the walls were not suffi
ciently strong to support the roof, and that ire weight
fairly crushed the feeble mason work. Yesterday
nothing (termite coati? be known, but the coroner's
inquest will probably develope the facts of the case

Prohibitory Liquor Law.
We publish in another column, the address from
the hien 'a of the Prohibitory Liquor Law, contain.
ing the act of last winter, submitting the question to
a vote of the people. This address is signed by
some of the best known friend* of Prohibition in
the Commonweal-h, amongst whom we might
Tar F GEDDts, and others, whose voice is certain
ly entitled to be heard, and whose suggestions, are
beyond all question prompted by a sincere desire
to forward the great cause in which they have so
long and earnestly been engaged.
We call the attention of every friend of a Prohibi•
bitory Liquor Law to this address. It has been
disadvantage under which the friends of this great
reform had heretofore labored, that selfish and the.
honest poloitions have sought to drag it into the
arena of political warfare, in such a manner as to
derange the purposes of its true friends. To be see.
oessfni, the Temperance movement must not be
made to minister to the party schemes of arty man
or set of men. It should rely upon its own justice
and morality, and;when its advocates go to the polls,
ihey should be very careful that they are not strik
ing a blow which will do infinite harm to the cause
they wish to prosper.
The Whig politicians have already commenced
their plans to secure the Temperance vote for Pot.
trot, by procuring from him pledges in regard to
Prohibitory Liquor Law. The answers from the
Candidatespor Governor, we published some weeks
since, anti :he reader could hardly fail to have been
struck with the desire on the part of POLLOCK to bid
high for the Temperance vote, and with the manly
and conscientious reply of Gov. Bicr.Ert. If the
vote of the people should decide in favor of such a
law, we have not the least doubt, either would
sign it, provided its provisions were not unconsti
tutional. A pledge in advance, before a bill is ev
en drawn, that it will he signed, is sheer nonsense ;
an! both undignified and dishonest.
The address to which we refer, places the tem•
perence question upon the right grounds. Let its
friends keep it there, and they will meet the appro
bation and secure the support of the 'honest and
upright of all parties They have a question upon
which they can now go 'the polls. Let them be
ware of all parties and all pledges. They need
nothing but the moral effect of a majority of 50,000
rotas to ensure them a triumph. That majority,
or more, they will receive, if they do not minister
pa. izan schemes.
We commend the following from this address to
the especial atienian of Temperance men. Let
them ponder it well, and consider if it is not the
voice of wisdom and of truth : "We respectfully
urge upon the friends of Temperance and a Pro-
hibitory Law, that they make this their only and
great object at the October election ; that they suf
fer no other issue to interfere with their eflorts in
this cause; and we ware them against permitting
themselves to be drawn into entangling alliances
with any of the political parties of the day, who de•
sire only to use this great, popular and growing
cause for the advancement of their partisan views;
to the successful-carry ing out by the popular vote
of these resolutions, and to this only should temp.
ranee men tarn their attention. fJpon this every
thing depends. No Legislature will dare to refuse
the passage of a bill in the (ace of the demands of
a majority of the voters, fairly expressed at the bal
lot boxes; and we have the pleasure of assuring our
temperancefriends that we are satisfied that any one of
the distinguished gentlemen who are candidates for
Governor will promptly give his sanction to such a
law 7"

and thathe remedy is under the act of 1794, which.
impose*. a fine el $4 for carrying on worldly busi
ness on the tibbittli.
The counsel fey the defeodantA,argued, that the
evidence did not establish, any indictable offence:
that although theact of 1794 punished by a a fine
of $4, the following of worldly employment on
Sunday, yet it was not emapetant to take the prohi
bition from that act, and inflict the punishment con.
tained in a totally different act.; that where two acts
exist ,opon any one subject, they must both be ex•
ecuted .where they are not in conflict. The law im
pned a penalty for selling liquor without a license,
or oiler it had expired. and a person having a
cerise could not be justly exposed to a penalty on
det this law, although he could be fined for a vio
lation► of the Sabbath. Several acts of Assembly
and cases decided, were cited, to show that where
one punishment is provided by law, no other pun
ishment can be inflicted, nor other proceedings
The real question in the care, it was contended,
was—whare there are two existing watutes appli
cable to a diflerent stale of facia, as to the following
of a paritcular i business,can,ilie penally in one sta
tute be applied to the infringement of the other sta.
cute? The Act of 1794 fixes the infraction of the
Sunday law al 64, while the penalty under the Act
for gelling liquor•wi.thout license is $5O for the first
offence, and imprisonment for the second: It was
contended that each of these statutes must have an
application to the offence it was designed to cure,
and could not be made to bear alike on both of
fences, by municipal construction.
in this view of the case, the Supreme Court seem
to have coincided, and Judge Lewis, of er a short
consultation won his associates, said: I am in
strucied to say that it is the unanimous opinion of
the Court that an indictment will not lie against the
deft. for the offence charged. The remedy is an
der the act of 1794. The decision in Omit's case
has been misunderstood, and Judge Woodward
will write out the opinion of the Court, and explain
in that particular the c'ecision in that case has
been misapprehended. The deft. is thierelore die•
Alone Fm m:ram—Telegraphic reports in Wall
street, announce the failure of the Montour Iron
Works, and of John Tucker, Esq , the President of
the Reading Railroad Company.
The Montour Iron Company are large holders of
railroad bonds, for which they have sold iron rails,
at a great nominal profit, but the impossibility 01
converting bonds into money, even, at a great and
losing depreciation, has led to thit suspension of the
company, and as Mr. Tucker was a principal pro.
prietor, his private affairs are consequently com
Mr. Tucker has been well known as an even
sive stock operator both in the N. Y. and Philadel
phia sock market, and in this way, besides those
sustained by him by the failure of the Montour
Company, sufficiently account for his failure. He
had endorsed the acceptance of the last named
company to a large amount.
The Philadelphia Ledger also says,that Mr. Tuck

him in credit, so that it is probable he may retain
the Presidency of the Reading Railroad. His
