THE SUNDAY I^AWS.
We publish on our outside, tho Report of
the Committee on Vice .and Immorality, :a the
State Senate on the subject .of the repeal of
tho Sunday laws. This report is the produc
tion of Mr. LAXDON, and is just such a paper
as might have been oxpected from him . We
append the comments of the Harrisburg Tele
The Report is a very candid argument of the
question upon its merits. Divested of all clap
trap appeals to the prejudices of men, and en
tirely free from Pharisaic dogmatism, it is an
argument which commends itself to.the reader
by its*simplicity and directness, not less than
by the skillful manner in which it approaches,
and deals with a vexed question.
It is very correctly stated, that the existing
laws prescribing the cessation of labor on
Sunday, do not interfere with the private judg
ment or peculiar opinions of any man. They
requite no man to attend this chnrch, or the
other, and dictate to no man in what his rest
aud relaxation from business on that dav shall
consist. The laws leave him free to attend
church, to sit in his own sanctuary at home,'to
walk abroad, or to ride in his own, or hired
conveyance. So long as he respects the rights
and privileges of his neighbors, the law is to
him as though it were not.
The observance of one day in seven, or re
lief from the cares and anxieties, as from the
physical exactions of day labor, one day in
seven,' seems to be well grounded in necessity.
The morality of the requirement is to plain to
be mistauea. YY e do not think it extravagant
to &ay r that to labor tbree hundred and sixty
live consecutive days is to debauch the body
and dwarf the soul. Too much physical ex
ertion, hke mental overwork, results in disaster
—in disease and premature death. The Mosaic
law, touching the Sabbath, acknowledged the
moral and physical necessity of its observance
very clearly, in its exception of the oz and the
ass from kibor on that day. All past experi
ence proves, that more opportunity for rest
and relaxation than is afforded iu the hours
ordinarily devoted to 6leep, is absolutely re
quired by ihe working world; and since the law
does not prescribe the manner in which this
rest aud relaxation shall be enjoyed, any fur
ther than to provide against disturbance and
not, we do not see how any broader license
can be asked for by the anti-church-goiug clas
The author of the report has earned, and

pay debts contracted for labor and materials

A®- President BUCHANAN has sent a Mes
sage to the House, protesting agaiust the first
two clauses of Mr. COVODE'S resolution provid
ing for a Select Committee to examine iuto
ui.eged abuses by the President or any other
officer of the Government. He defends the
President's rights and duties, taking the ground
that Cougrcss can act ouly under the impeach
ing power. The reception of this -document
lead to an exciting debate, and was disposed
of by referring the same to the Judieiary Com
mittee, of which the Hon JOHN HICKMAN is
I iio.i James K Panlding forme r ly
Secretary of the Havy, died on at
farrytown, New Yorb.
Qy Some weeks ago there appeared in the
Buchanan organ at this place what purported
to be a ,letter from Harrisbnrg, grossly de
faming our Representative#. The Harrisburg
Telfgraph noticing the letter, say* —"The
writer of the letter in question took occasion
to land to the skies Mr. Jackson, of Sullivan,
and at the same time to grossly defame both
the Republican members from Bradford connty.
We refer to the letter published in the Bradford
Herald, a Locofoco paper published by the
Postmaster at Towanda, and which was read
in the House of Representatives on Monday
afternoon. The reading of the letter created
considerable suprise and disgust among those
who were so well acquainted with the gentle
men to whom reference was made.
" While we have nothing to say against the
laudations heaped upon the radical locofoco
member from Sullivan, we do protest, most
solemnly, against tho 3landers heaped upon
Messrs SMEAD and KINXEY, the members re
ferred to. The writer of this article has been
constantly on the floor of the House during
many sessions of the Legislature, and has not
missed a sipgle session of the Honse during
the past winter (except a few days beiDg con
fined by sickness,) and is therefore able to
speak froip the record, and be declares in all
sincerity, that Bradford county may be justly
proud of her Representatives, Messrs. SMEAD
and KINNEY ; both of them have taken active
part in the proceedings of the House during
tho session just ended, aud were highly res
pected by their fellow members. They were
alweys able and ready, not only to take part
in debate, but engaged in all the important
measures before the House. They took a par.
ticulariy active part in the passage of the Tariff
resolutions, —thus showing that the district
which they represent is not in power of free
trade, as has been Irequeutly asserted by the
Locofocos. The resolutions relative to the
organization of Congress received also their
active support ; and the able report submited
on the subject of the practical establishment
of the Slave trade, by Mr. Kinney, speaks for
itself. They were always sound on all political
subjects. We shall rejoice if their places are
so ably filled next session, and would be glad
to see the " two term " principle, so extensive
ly adhered to in several counties, dispensed
with in this case. Messrs. Kinney and Smead
are not only fully acquainted with all the busi
ness of Legislation, but are well and able to
take the responsibility of action."
FIRE AT DANVILLE. —Between twelve and
ouo o'clock, on Sunday morning, a fire broke
out in Finney's building, situated on Mill St.,
and before the flames could be extinguished,
the entire block, consisting of seven or eight
buildings, from Mahoning street to Franklin
court, were destroyed.
The following properties were burnt :
Schroth'e restaurant, the Mansion House, kept
by Mr. S. Blue, Brum's saloon, Savage's jew
elry, and Doran's tailoring establishments.—
Mr. Schroth is the heaviest loser. The entire
loss amounted to $ 15,000, on which there is a
partial insurance. The fire is supposed to
have been the work of an incendiary. The
flames spread so rapidly that it was with diffi
culty the personal effects of many of the oc
cupants were saved.
The firemen and citizens by great exertions
saved the adjoining houses. As it is, au en

tie-ground, and it was not long before the pri
soner was rescued, and 6teps taken to secure
a writ of habeas corpus. This was issued by
Judge HOARD, and, upon its return befooe a
fall Bench of the Supreme Court at Boston,
SANBORN was discharged, on the ground that
the warrant should have been executed by the
Sergeant at-Arras in person. The Court re
fused to pass upon other points suggested for
the prisoner. An attempt was made to carry
the excittment into the Legislature, by a mo
tion that the Attorney-General be instructed
to appear for SANBORN. It was voted down.
A memorial from SANBORN was subsequently
presented, setting forth the particulars of his
arrest, and demanding protection. No action
war had upon it.

concerning the annexation, had declared in

RHODE ISLAND.—WILLIAM SPRAGUE has been
elected Governor of Rhode Island by the
combined vote of the Americans, Democrats,
and " Conservatives." His majority over the
regular Republican nominee is about 1500.
Mr. SPRAQCK is the son of AMASA SPRACDE,
who was murdered fifteen years ago by a cou

stance probably has made him the intense
American that he is. He is repnted to be im

fl® - * Senator WIGFALL, of Texas, used the
following language, a few days since, in Con
gress : " These northern people, of all parties,
are a mean, despicable set of starvelings, una
ble to see beyond a dollar, and caring for no
consideration except money. Threaten them,
and they will crouch to your feet like so many
hounds. Only swear that you are going to
dissolve the Union, and the timid creatures
will get down on all fours, bite the dust, and
kiss the rod raised to chastise them." The
Senator applied this language to Northern
Republicans and Democrats indiscriminately.
As if to show that it is no piece of empty
bravado, the Charleston papers declare that
the houses of that city will never be so closely
secured and watched as when the Democratic
Convention shall be in session, with its hosts
of retainers precipitated upon the n.

On the 13th inst., a little boy in his
sixth year, a son of THOMAS BURGESS of Smithfield, while
laughing with a kernel of corn in his mouth accidentally
sucked it into his windpipe. This was followed by a se
vere paroxysm of coughing, which lasted a few minutes
and nearly subsided. Dr. E. P. ALREN saw him a few
hours after, aad on examination found that the kernel
had passed into the left bronchial tube and seemed fixed
in its position. There being but a slight cough and no
very great difficulty in respiration, the Doctor thought
not best to interfere until more urgent symptoms present
ed ; hoping that it might be thrown from the lung dur
ing a fit of coughing. The little fellow kept about three
or four days, when a high fever obliged hira to take his
bed. Itespiratiou became more difficult. On the 23d the
symptoms became so alarming it was thought unsafe to
defer longer an operation, when Dr. ALLEN, assisted by
Dr. HOLMES, of Canton, performed Tracheatomy in a neat
and skillful manner. The corn had swelled and become
impacted in the bronchial tube to that extent it could
not be removed. The wound in the windpipe was left
open with the expectation of suppuration taking place
around the corn, when the corn would be raised into the
windpipe and thrown out of the opening, which happy
result took place on the 17th inst., followed by about one
half ounce of pus. The little fellow is now decidedly
convalescent, and the painful anxiety of his parents and
friends greatly relieved E. J. B.
PIKE'S PEAK.—A former resident of this
County, lately returned from Pike's Peak, has communi
cated to us the following information, which may be use
ful and interesting to those who have turned their tho'ts
towards that El Dorado.
He says—l arrived at the mines about the first of July
last. The principal difficulty we had to encouuter was
the discouraging reports brought back by returning emi
grants who had never reached the gold region. The In
dians have been very friendly up to this time, and have
not molested a single party. After arriving at the mines
the miners are too apt to become excited \jy rumors of
other and better diggings, and Wave a good claim to start
on a prospecting tour, and not being accustomed to work,
and inexperienced in the business, in many instances
make a failure, while others who have made np their
minds to hard labor, and stick to their work, get well
paid. lam satisfied that gold abounds in paying quanti
ties, and the relations I had with the miners from
the different districts warrants me in saying that it is
destined to become a rich gold producing country—sec
ond to none.
Much gold has been nndoubtedly wasted by careless
washing , as in California the dust In many pluces pays
wsll for a second washing. The gold la diffbrent in vari
ous mines! the Sooth Platte being seals gold, while
North Is shot and mgget. Ths largest pices 1 saw weigh

think the average per man woaid be abont 10 peMiy
weights a day Mat indnMand that all have made
that—for the majority did not make day wages, $1,60,
while ether* made their thousands of dollars, and hare
valuable claims left. The lead claisu are considered by
Califore'lans to be 50 per cent, better, while the gulches
do as well as those in California In the same time and
under tl same ci reams Unco*.
The amount of farming land la small; being a narrow
atrip along the streams. This Is very productive, vegeta
tion growing very rapidly. The climate is said to be very
much like California and Salt Lake Valley. My brother
writes me that np to the 18th of February there had been
no severe weather, stock living on grass and doing well.
If any person from Bradford contemplates going to
Pike's Peak, 1 would advise them to go to St. Josephs,
by railroad, then the California road to Fort Kearney,
and the South Platte. St. Josephs ia aa good an outfitting
post as any. Stock, wagona and provisions can be bad
there on favorable terms. A good supply of dried fruit
is desirable, to counteract the effects of the alkaline wa
ter. Great quantities of arms and ammunition is a nui
sance, and not wanted. A good rifle is necessary how

While I have no question aa to the existence of gold in
abundance, yet I think that persons who are doiug well
in Bradford had better stay there. The labor in the mines
is very hard, and precarious ; for one man who ia repaid,
ten are disappointed, and lose their time, money and
health. It partakes too much of the nature of a lottery
to make it desirable or certain.
