Among the many contributions whicn hare
been made, of late years, to the local history
of 'Philadelphia, very few have been more in.
tereating or valuable than the work recently
by Messrs. Lindsay & Blakiston,
from the pen of Dr. Joseph Carson, giving
the history of the Medical Department of the
'University of Philadelphia. The career of
this how venerable institution has been, for
<morhthan a'century, closely intertwined with
•the general contemporary history of Phila
delphia, and the admirable work of Be. Car
taon,' although tfeating of a special subject,
'toucheß at-all points upon the general local
'histpry of the city, in such a way as to give
the booh a deep interest to all readers.
The-medical history of Philadelphia is an
extremely interesting one. The long line of
-distinguished men who have adorned the
profession of medicine, and who early made
this the centre of this department of scien
tific influence, and gave to Philadelphia a
supremacy which she has never lost, is com
posed of names which are yet familiar to all
Philadelphians,even though the great increase
of population might have been expected to
merge them in partial oblivion. Doctor Car
son, with an immense amount of laboriona
research,gives us a graphic sketch of the first
experiences of the early Colony in regard to
the healing art, and then traces out the his -
tory of the foundation of the American Phi
losophical Society in 1743. and the Pennsyl
vania Hospital, in 1751, two institutions
which prepared the way for the establishment
of the .first msdical lectures in Philadelphia,
from whlch the Medical Department of the
University of Pennsylvania grew into orga
nized shape in 17C5.
To Dr. Thomas Cadwalader, a pupil of the
famous anatomist Cheselden of London, be
longs the credit of the first course of medicjbf
lectures in Philadelphia. They were de
livered, about the year 1750, in a building
then standing on tbe site afterward occupied
by the Bank of Pennsylvania. Dr. William
fihippen, Jr., a dozen years later, delivered a
course of anatomical lectures, the introduc
tory'lecture being given in one of the 'rooms
of the State House. In 1765, the University
of' Pennsylvania was fairly organized in its
Medical Department, and from this point we
have a series of biographical sketches of the
celebrated physicians of Philadelphia who
have been connected with its Faculty,down to
the present day. Drs.-Adam Kuhn,Benj.Ruah,
John Morgan, Jas. Hutchinson, Sami. P. Grif
fitts, Redman Coxe, Thos. C. James, Benj.
.8. 'Barton, Caspar Wistar, John 8. Dorsey,
William Gibson, Philip Syng Physiok, Wil
liam P. Dewees, Robert Hare, Nathaniel
Chapman, and others, who were “giants in
■ those days,” are all made the subjects of most
interesting sketches, which involve much of
tbe collateral social and scientific history of
From the University of Pennsylvania, as
tbe fountain head of American medical
seience, have sprung the myriad schools of
medicine, all over the country; while its eight
thousand graduates have diffused its direct
benefits among all communities. In its old
age it-is more vigorous than ever, and keep
ing pace with all the advances of real science,
and alllhe developments of the art of educa
tion, the,Medical University of Pennsylvania
will 'long wear the proud honor of being
[first and .greatest among American schools,
mot only by reason of superior antiquity, but
for its illustrious line of professors, and for
,the incalculable influence which :l has ex
erted,and yet exerts upon the whole medical
.profession of this continent.
Doctor Carson has done his work con
Mmare. Everywhere are to be seen the evi
dences that he has been engaged iu a labor of
love. His researches have been most pains
-taking, and have ranged over a very wide
field, ;oavering the records of Philadelphia for
well nigh two hundred yeara. lie has added
a most valuable volume to our historical libra
ries, and has contributed largely to do new
honor to a class of men of whom Philadelphia
is most justly proud.
The believers in true Democracy need not
be in utter despair of Delaware. Althouga
Seymour carried the State by a large maj wity,
there have been recent signs of progress that
are full of encouragement Saulgbury goes
out of the Senate on the 3d of next mouth,
never to reappear in it His place is to be
filled by a Democrat, it is true, but one who
is immeasurably superior to him,morally and
i A still more remarkable fact than the re
tirement of Baulsbury was reported in a letter
from our Dover correspondent in yesterday’s
Buiaetin. The Legislature ol the State,
Which is unanimously Democratic, has con
sidered and passed a bill divorcing a married
man and woman who were black' When
,tbo despised “nigger” arrives at the dignity
of /divorce, in the opinion of a Democratic
legislature in the j»‘white man s government”
of Delaware, he must be rising in social as
Rs]).&ajßpUtical position. Heretofore mar-
rings amoDgnegroeahae scarcely beenrecog
nized as a binding legal tie. But now it is
considered sufficiently sacred to require legis
lative action to dissolve it.
In another way the Legislature has recog
nized the black man aa a human being and at
leaßt a quasi citizen. It has received a peti
tion signed by “six hundred colored citizens”
of the State, and has given it reijaeotfal con
sideration, referring it, without opposition, to
the Committee on Education. To be sure,
the petition aßked that these and the other
“colored citizens” of the State be taxed for
school purposes. But, after ail, the recep
tion and reference of the petition contain a
recognition of Sambo's right to be taxed,
which, taken along with “Sambo’s right to
be kilt," which was recognized everywhere
dnriDg the war, shows decided elevation in
the status of the negro.
The Legislature at Dover ought to go on in
the way it has begun thiß session. And one
of the things it ought to take in hand is the
whipping-post and pillory. When these are
abolished people will begin to think that the
little Diamond State is on the high road to
Unwisdom is a new word. The honor of
its invention is due to one of the younger
scions of the Philadelphia bar, and it was
flrßt put upon the stage yesterday in District
Court No. 2. The readers of the Evening
Bfujcmn are intelligent people, and are glad
to learn of any important contribution to our
language or to any of the sciences, and they
will want to know what “unwisdom” is. It
may be defined to be that condition of mind
possessed by a juryman who opposes his hard
common sense to the legal adroitness of a
voluble counsel, and insists upon Beeing
through the fog and mist with which legal
gentlemen strive to obscure plain facts and
obvious principles. This is unwisdom. The
word sounds a little awkward to unaccus
tomed ears, but the thing signified will be
easily understood by any one who has wit
nessed the process referred to.
It is a very interesting study to follow the
process of litigation, as ordinarily pursued in
some of our Courts, and to observe how
much unwisdom is displayed by those stupid
creatures who are usually addressed, particu
larly by youDg lawyers, as “such intelligent
men as I now see before me.” The jury-box
is apt to contain some heavy, sleepy, inert
looking beings, who have not the remotest
idea ol what is going on; but there is almost
always an admixture of Bharp, keen, com
mon-sensible men, who are usually gifted
with this quality of unwisdom. The
student of physiognomy, who watches
the faces of this class of jurymen, detects their
unwisd.-m in the expression of incredulity,
or positive-con tempt, which grows upon them
as they recognize, by an unerring instinct,
that some ambitious young gentleman of the
bar haß addressed himself to pie task of bewil
dering them about plain fasts which they un
derstand perfectly, and about which they
often know much more than the glib lawyer
who is seeking to mislead them. This is
where the unwisdom comes in. They see
how the witnesses are tempted to trip them
'eelves, by cleverly mis-stated repetitions of
their answers; they detect the transparent
“trteks of the trade” by which they
are to be deluded into believing that
black is white, and falsehood truth; and
their steady unwisdom shows itself more and
more clearly, as the self-satisfied advocate of
some bogus suit waxes warm and eloquent
over the wrongs of his client and his own
disinterested cravings after “the truth, the
whole truth and nothing but the truth.” It
1b generally about the time when, if it be a
suit for damages, the point is reached where
the man ol law spurns the idea that bis client
is actuated by the greed of filthy lucre, that
the unwisdom of the sensible juryman is
clinched and rivetted. “Gentlemen of the
jury ! me client is here to assert one of the
gr-r-r-eat principles that lie at the founda
tion of our institootions. The paltry damages
which we claim are of no consequence (here
Unwisdom invariably grins). Principle!
gentlemen, principle is what we contend for.
Perish the thought of the poor substitute of
dollars and cents.!"
Unwisdom is an invaluable quality in
society. A jury without unwisdom would
believe so much trash, would swallow so
much forensic fog, that the very lawyers,
themselves, would soon come to believe in
the integrity oi their suits, and in the honesty
of their own intentions, and then where
should we be ? Unwisdom sits in the jury
box, atjd interposes a wholesome eheck on
this tendency, it saves the law from falling
utterly into contempt, by opposing the via
inertia of practical honesty and common
sense to the lively tergiversations which Rre
accepted as essential .parts of legal practice
by many oi the younger members of the bar.
As men grow older they appreciate the value
and power of unwisdom, and gradually drop
these tricky littlenesses which bring the dig
nity ol juslice into contempt. Gradually
they learn that there is often a great fund of
practical knowledge, of clear discernment, of
sound discrimination, lodged in the brains of
the hard, solid-looking men of their jury
boxes, and they fall back, step by step, upon
the old-fashioned doctrine that alter all
truth will tell best in the long ran. The un
wisdom of the juryman proves itself wiser in
its generation than all the small craft that
goes to m. ke up so much of the practice of
the younger members of the modern bar.
The Passport system, that has prevailed all
over the continent of Europe, has long been
a great annoyance to American travelers.
Borne years ago the Imperial Government of
France abolished it se far aB it related to
English tourists. Now, thanks to the unre
mitting efforts of our Minister to Paris, Gen
eral Dix, it has been abolished bo far as it
relates to Americans. By a decree of De
cember, “the Emperor’s Government has
decided that citizens of the American Union
shall hereafter be permitted to enter, travel
and sojourn in France, on the simple decla
ration of their nationality, and without being
subjected to the necessity of passports." This
concession on the part of France, on behalf of
the two nationalities that comprise the larger
proportion of the pleasure-tourists in the con
tinent, ought to lead to similar concessions in
Germany,ltaly, Russia and especially in revo-
_ lutionized Spain.
iThfre is an aged lady living hi England,
who receives a pension eighteen pounds
sterling a year as “an-American loyalist.”
Her loyalty, of showed itself during
our revolutionary struggle, which began
about a centtqy ago, and only terminated -in
1782. Mrs. McDonald must have been a
quite young lady, when she rendered.the ser
vices for which a pension for life was granted
to her. Bhe is now 104 years old, so that at
the end of the revolutionary war, she could
not have been more than eighteen. Is there
any person- in this country able to recount
the early history and the services of this
venerable dame? They ought to make a
quite interesting narrative.

“Ae to whether a Harrison boiler will explode
is an open qneßtion. its inventor is particularly
positive on the subject, while others are equally
certain the other way. Now It Is not for ns to
eay that the Harrison holler will, and we cer
tainly shall not over that It will not, explode. It
may be proper to add that In December last there
was an explosion In Drinker’s alley. Now what
was the name oi the exploded boiler? Will Mr.
Harrison please say? Oar columns aro open for
If the boiler in Drinker's alley allnded to is (he
one in Mr.Yocum’sfonndry.it Is a Harrison boiler.
In a pamphlet issued from the Harrison Boiler
Works lor several ycare past will be found the
Page 21. “Steam-boilers can no more be made
absolutely secure against some kind of explosion or
fracture than guns or ordnance. But they should
be and can be made, so that no serious harm can
arise when they do give way. To accomplish
this most important end, the prevailing system
has been found, after a century of trial, entirely
at fault, and Improvements must bo looked for In
its abandonment.”
Axioms, pnge 23.—1st. That a steam-generator,
ot w hatever form or material, must, as a para
mount condition, be absolutely secure from
destructice explosion, even when carelessly used.
3d. That its strength should In no respect be
dependent npon any system of stays or braces,
whereby the inefficiency or rupture of one of
these braces or stays could cause greatly In
creased strain npon the others, thus endangering
the whole strnctnre.
Gib. That a boiler, whether of large or small
dimensions, should have uniformly such ele
ments of strength, os would render it always
capable of safely sustaining many times greater
picssnre than need ever be demanded of it in
practice, and that its safety should not be Im
paired by corrosion, or the many other harmful
Influences, which so soon and so seriously affect
the strength of ordinary boilers.
7lb. That the parts should be so made and put
together, that in case of ruptnreof any portion of
tbc boiler, no general break np of the strnctnre
could occur, the release ol the pleasure by such
rupture merely causing a discharge of the con
tents, without explosion or serious disturbance
of any kind.
Page 37.—“8y what has been adduced it mnst
be seen lhat the Harrison Boiler is safe from de
structive explosion. It is not, however, main
tained lhat It cannot, under excessive pressure,
be burst In some of Its parts, or that it might not,
under certain circumstances, do injury, conse
quent npon a sadden discharge of water or steam.
But it is'maintained that under 130 circumstances
can it ‘rtnd and scatter large masses of material ,
liberating at the same time large volumes of highly
charged water and steam. ’
"On page 131 of the Journal of the Franklin
Institute for Febraary, 1867, will be found a re
port of the ‘Committee on Science and the Arts’
of the Franklin institute, giving an account of
certain most severe testa that the Harrison Boiler
was pnt to, In the effort to destroy it by stcam
pressnre and other means. The attempted de
struction utterly failed. Attention is called to
this report, qb exhibiting some very remarkable
“When it is considered that eight hundred and
seventy-five pounds per square inch of steam
pressure, failed to burst any of the spheres in one
of the sections—that under Buch severe teet every
joint becomes a salety-volve; and when it is cer
tain'that, under all circumstances, the general
integrily tf the whole structure can be surely
maintained (a point most positively insisted
upon), then bnt Blight injury can arise, in any
contingency.” *

Wasbiwotoic, Feb. 9.
Beji ati —Mr. Morton made a very ungenerous at
:. taek upon Btato..sovereigutv and upon the Democratic
, party, which, be said, had lived for tweoty yean upon
u Its boatility tothe negro, and was now embracing the
putrescent corpAeotafaverr.
Mr. Doolittle replied In defence of Btate rights.
Mr, Morton earn he did not deny the existence of
rstate right*, bat only of State sovereignty.
Mr. Doolittle Baid-that it was essential to the con
; tinned existence of onr Government that the right* of
the Spates should be recognized as well as the right*
' of the Federal Government In the coarse of bis re-
• marks be expressed the opinion that if the Supremo
? Conn had decided in the McArdlc case that the mill
; tary tribunal by which ho (McArdie) was tried was pin
- constitutional, the Chief Justice would hare been
f nominated at New York for President and would have
f been elected.
Mr. Drake asked him whether if the Coart bad dc
: clarod the acts of Congress unconstitutional, that de
; cislon would have been of any force.
Mr. Doolittle thought it would.and would have been
7' acquiesced in by ail departments of the Government.
Mr. Djohe denied that the Supreme Coart had a
: aonstlintlonal right nnder any circumstances to pro
nounce «ny act of-Congrcea anconatltutional.
Mr. Wbytc <Md.) asked him wbe her,ifthe Supreme
Court thoald decide the Legal Tender Act to be
unconstitutional, the decision ought to be respected.
Mr. Drake replied—not at all,and he would he fraud
standing to his position, and both Houses of Congress
7 would have to come to that position at last, or else
sweep from the bench of the Supreme Court the men
who dared attempt to cifpple by their judicial proceed
ings the law-making power of the country.
Mr. Norton.at 2.20 A. M , moved to adjourn. Lost,
yeas U, nays ».
Mr. Davis spoke for one hour Id an elucidation of
his views of the capacities or incapacities of the negro.
Mr. Sawyer wished that the Senator from Kentucky
bad lived for a lime in a reconstructed State, because
then he could* have seen that the negro, although not
the equal of the white, had yet within him the germ
of improvement: which will enable him to develop
Into an intelligent and good citizen under our institu
tions. The objection made to the amendment that it
would change the relations of the States to the Federal
Government, seemed to him a strange one, because
there could he no amendment to the Constitution that
wonld not, in some respects, change those relations.
At 4 A. M. Mr. Norton to»k the floor to address the
Senate, but yielded at the request of Mr, Sumner for a
motion to adjourn, widen was lost—yeas 19, nays 98.
Mr. Norton then read a large portion of Mr. Sum
ner’s speech, mndea few days ago, on th** amendment,
adopting it as bis own,and applying Mr. Sumner’s lan
gQme ased about slavery ana caste to what he ealled
Federalism under the alia* of human r’gbts.
Mr. Wilson spoke in advocacy of the amendment.
Mr. Drake offered an amendment in the following
“No citizen of the United States snail, on account
of race, color, or previous condition of servitude, be,
by the United Stages, or any Stcte, denied the right to
vote or bold office. ”
Mr. Edmunds was unable to see any difference be
tween this and the report of the Judiciary Committee.
’ Mr Drake called attention to the different arrange
ment of the words, which be thought avoided the im
plication contained In the amendment reported from
the Committee, that a right to vote or hold office ex
isted independently of any constitutional of legal
errant of such right.
Mr. Howard made the same objection to the amend
ment' f the Senator from Missouri that he had made
to the report of the Committee, namely, that it left it
still possible for a State to deny a man the right to
vole or bo*d«fflce upon some other ground than race,
color, or previous condition of servitude. Fur Instancy
for religious belief
Mr. Edmunds said be was one of thogc who believed
that the 14th AmcndmeuLproperly understood,already
conferred the flight to vote and ail other rlrhta ana
prvl'eces of clilzenshlp.and he deprecated the attempt
of the Republican party to press the constitutional
amendment, because it-woald be construed as a legis
lative acknowledgment that the constitution, even
with the 14th Amendment, did not confer those rights
and privileges. lncidcntally,he remarked that In case
the right of suffrage were given to women his only fear
was that the baa women woald all vote while the
good women would all 6tay at home.
Mr. Warner asked the Senator from Vermont h ow
■son In bis judgment it would be before, without the
proposed amendment, the colored population should
be allowed to exercise the rights, wnlch he thought
were conferred by the 14tn Amendment.
Mr. Edmunds replied that that depended upon the
vigor with which Congress would assert the-e rights
for them It required intervention not outside the
law.bat with the law As the weapon of Intervention.
Mr. Drake thought Mr Edmunde's view of the effect
of the Fourteenth Constitutional Amendments,tery in
correct and iphchlevoutt one, aud made an argument
to *how that it Was so.
Mr finmnerwas understood to take the same viow
pfl Mr. Edmunds of the scope of the fourteenth amend
Mr. Howard remarked that be had been a member
of (be joint committee which had reported that
amendment, and this was the first time he had heard
the claim made that it wne designed to confer or that
it dH confer the right to vote.
At 7.40 A. M , Mr. Sumner moved to adjourn.
Messrs. Cragln and Stewart opposed the motion,and
the latter called for the yeas ana nays, which were or
dered. The motion was Jo6t—yeas 11, nays 87.
Mr. Cragin was enrprised at the position taken by
the Senators from Massachusetts and Vermont (Messrs.
Sumner and Edmunds) in regard to the design and ef
fect of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitu
tion, because he remembered that at the time that
amendment;,waa ~passed, it was distinctly stated by
more than one Senator, and contr idictcd by none,that
it did not confer the right to vote upon anvbody; and
be protested against the introduction of this view at
this time, because he believed that the debate woald
be continued on this ground for the purpose of defeat
ing the pending amendment
Mr. Yates explained bis position on the suffrage
question, and contrasted it with that of the Demo
cratic party, much to tho disadvantage of the latter.
Mr. Morrill (Yt.) urged tho friends of the pendlug
emendment to come to a vote without farther debate,
as they would probably have future opportunities to
be eloquent in the Semite chamber.
Mr, Hendricks made a brief defence of the Demo
cratic party from the attack of his colleague (Mr, Mor
ton and the Senator from Illinois (Mr. Yates) which
he thought;entirely unprovoked by anything that had
been said by the Democratic Senators.
In the contte of tho debate Mr. Norton said that if
this amendment was adopted. It would be adopted not
by the will of the people.Dut by the will of a party and
by tho operation oi jmrAj^achinery.
Mr. Yates that he hod been elected
by the Republican party; •
Mr. Norton—l .woe, sir.-.
Mr, Yates—Thbn permit me to say that I think the
party made a mistake. [Laugh er ]
Mr. Norton said he felt greatly complimented by the
reminder of the Senator from Illinois, and went on to
tell at length the reason why.
_ The question was then taken op tho amendment of
Mr. Drake, which was rejected,
•‘Citizens of the United States of African descent
■ball nave the same right to vote and hold office as
other citlzchs, electors of the most numerous branch
of the Leglß’ature.”
!Mr. Howard offered again his substitute for the re
port ofihe Committee, in these words: '
Mr. Dqolit»le made an argument to show the men
rai and physical inferiority of the negro, and the in
consistency of tho Republican party in seeking to give
ballot while denying it to the Chinaman.
The amendment was then rejected—ayes 10, nays 85.
The question was then taken on *he amendment of
Mr. Warner, which was pending at 11.30, A. M., when
the Senate adjourned till la o’clock.

Tin T* bus also been an Increase in the specie reserve of

shipments of gold during the past week. On the otho
batid the legal tenders show a derline of $510,976. which
is accounted for by the increesed domand during the past
week for all kinds of Government securities, This re

to a future condition of case and plenty.
There is a more active demand for capital

The Yt>T\UPamsylvanian says:
About half past seven o’clock on Thursday
evening a mnrderons crime was committed in the
village ef Loganville, seven miles south of York.
Two wagons came in collision. George Hart
man, Jr., who bad a companion in his Bpring
wagon, was driving the one team, and Michael
Hartman, with a one-horse spring-wagon, was,
the occupant of the other. Albert D. .Haitmw. g
son of Michael, had been walking near the wfc-#
gone when they collided.
An angry quarrel sprang np Immediately,
which terminated by George Hartman's dealing,
with a club or other weapon, a deadly blow upon
the skull of A. D. Hartman, the gentleman who
recently kept a store at tbe comer of George Bed
King streets, in this place. All the parties are
distant relatives. Both the assailant and assailed
are about twenty-three years old. The blbw was
so terrible that Mr. H’e skull was broken, and the
poor victim vengeance lay uncon
scious until 11 o'clock the same night, when death,
ended his Bufferings. Information was sent to R
this place as soon aa possible, and a warrant for
the arrest of George Hartman (all the parties
reside In Springfield township, Tork connty, two
or three miles from Loganville) was Issued to
Constable Wallick, who brought the offender
before SquireTreger about nine o’clock yesterday
morning. Hartman was promptly committed to
jail to await the action of the law. When the
news of the terrible deed spread throughout
town, Intense excitement ensued.

In the safe in the office of J. Mahoney, road
Some one effected an entrance into the office
and unlocked the safe with a skeleton key, tak
ing over fifteen thousand dollars from It. The
only cue to the thief yet found Is the skeleton
key, which was picked np on Fonrth street be
low Pine. This, however, affords no evidence
of the Identity of thecriminoL
The robbery is quite a mysterious one, espe
cially when we consider the public place at which
It was committed, and the fact that portions of
the building are occupied day and night the year
The “job” must have been well planned and
skillfully executed, as the office where it was
committed Is within a shprt distance of the rail
road telegraph office, which is always occupied.

Mr. Brooks, rising to a correction of
tbe jonrnal. referred to tbe fact that evening ses
sions hod been agreed upon by unanimous con
sent, with the understanding that they should ne v
exclusively for the consideration of the tax bill;
and yesterday, also, by unanimous consent, the
consideration of the Army Appropriation
bill should be tbe exclusive business of last even
ing, and that, nevertheless, other business had
been transacted last evening, including the pas
sage of a bill for the sale of tbe steamer Atlantic,
and of the concurrent resolution In reference to
the electoral vote of Georgia,&c He moved that
these latter proceedings be expnnged from the
jonrnal of the Honse.
The Speaker stated that If the facta stated by
the gentleman from New York were correctly
stated, as the gentleman supposed they were, the
point would bave been a good one, bat the ar
rangement as to the business of the evening ses
sions on both occasions had not been made by
unanimous consent, but under a suspension of
tbe rales.

tion yesterday with special regard te allowing

and himself, that no business was to be trans
acted last night except the Army Appropriation
He asked unanimous consent to have his vote
recorded against the concurrent resolution in
reference to Georgia.
ThC Speaker said that under the rule unani
mous consent could not be asked.
The House then proceeded to the business of
