Harrisburg, Jan. 24. 18
THE DUTY OP TIM • BOUM
It relates to organization for the
opening campaign. Let it be ptompt,
th.:.roligh and so efficient. Ta organize
in every election district is another,
and not less important work. Let us
see what work is to be done. 1
Whatever the unprincipled dema
gogues of the opposition may decide,
or trump up as isattes upon which tbe
parties are to join in the approaching
campaign,the true issue is this:2,S all
the governmeneremain in the bard
of its friends, of shall it pass into the
hands of enemies? That is the ques
tion; and every man who goes to the
polls next October and November,
and deposits his ballot, mast impel.-
tionablytput in bieresponse to that se
rious question. We may know b e .
folehand that our unscrupulous opp -
milts dare not gO - before the people
on this naked question; for there is
too keen a recollection of the great
sacrifice of life and treasure made ne
cessary by the misrule of this striving
party to render the experiment a safe
one to be made. The people recollect
that the Democratic party controlled
_Pr thirty years en
ding in 1861, and that before the 4th'
of March of that year, tenAtates bad
more or less formally and' in fact re- 1
pudiated that Constitution, of the in
violability of. which its organs and
orators have now so much to say.—
The pretext for this repudiation was
the loss of power by the full and over
whelming decision of the people.—
The cause a it was the demoralization
of the party by slavery, ambition and
too much plunder. Long rule bad be
gotten reckless administration of a
high public trust. The then Presi
dent now a weak and despised do
tard, fumbled';over the Cdtetatntion
for authority to rescue it from *trac

neglected to provid.,in so many*rds
for the contingency that has arisen.
- True,it declared itself supreme as law,
i i and it bound him on his oakli to up
hold and maintain it, and execute the
laws framed in pursuance thereof.—
But it did not declare that-a repudia
tion of the compact by a State should
be pufidown by force. The President
searched long and diligently for the
word "coercion," but it was not to be
found in the instrument. He handed
the instrument over to his plastic,At
-1 teeney General, Jeremiah Black, and'
that functionary sought high and low
for the necessary word. It was not
there. Therefore, there was no pow
-ler granted by the constitution to
coerce a State. So the evil work of
disintegration went on, until Abra
ham Lincoln delivered hie inaugural,
and was installed President of a fam
ilyt of States, of whicl .n o ffi cially

The' passage of the Free Railroad law is
a matter of great importance to the people
of the Commonwealth, who have been sub-
jected too long already to the great railroad
monopolies that have keen demanding and,
receiving • extravagant - passenger rates and
freight charges of the most outrageous
eharavt.pr. ,The new law authorizes any
nine citizens of 'the State to form a compa
ny, the capital stock of which shall not be
less than ten thousand dollars per mile of
'road to be built. - The restoration' of ilih -
Connellsville radioed charie - ris looked upon
by e public as one of the most important

the Western portion of the Cointnonwealth .
The necessity for erecting anothei'Lttna
tic Hospital in the State is . becoming more
pressing as each year rolls 'by. From the
report of the Superintendent of the Asylum
at Harrisbnrg, it appears that at the open
ing of the New year there 'were three hun
dred and forty insane prmons-1135 males
and 165 females—in that. institution. Dr.
Cumin, the Superintendent, remarks that
"it is earnestly to be hoped that the Legis
will see the wisdom, the gropriety,
'and`the nechssity of making, promptly, the
most. ample provision for the largo number
of insane who' claim the fostering care of
the Commonwealth, and who, more than
any other class; need that 'care and treat
ment which are due to the most Mllicted
class of her ,citizens." The seatiOn of coun
try in. which Bradford count" is' situated
should make an effort to secure the location
there 'of the Asylum that must be built
within a very few years. Your enterprising
citizens should ake an effort .to have To-'

The proposed Aniendments to the State
Constitution have caused considerable an
blasted discussion in the Legislature. It be
scarcely probable that either amendment
will be pasSed by the Legislature.
Mr. Lames has presented in place a bill
to incorporate the Wyoming Valley and On
tario Railroad Company. Referred to Com
mittee on Railroads.
Affairs at the Capitol aro somewhat dull
at present, but it is believed there will be
quite a revival in business at an early day.
