I passed more than two gallone of water In twenty-tour

after using It I experienced relief, and after taking two bot

Donumorrhaa, and irritation of the Btadder. I called a
physician, wino attended her about three months, when he
left her worse than he found her. I then employed one of
the best physicians I could and, who attended her for about
nine months, and while the was under his care she did not
suffer quite as mach pain: he finally gave her up and
said: "Ur case woe incurable:" For, said he, " she has
auch a combination of comp/anis. teat usseltabla lite"
. ...peratta againet some other of her Liifficulties."
About this time, she commenced the use of Constitution
Water, audio our utter astonishment, almost the first dose
'seemed to have the desired effect, and she kept on improv

TREASO ABLE OFFENCES.
Debate in the Senate of Pennsylvania,
ON MR. LOWRY'S RESOLUTION,
Tuesday, February 17, 1863.
Bill entitled " joint resolution L.,:lruoi.;noo on*
Senators and requesting our Representatives in Con
gress to procure the immediate passage of lam de
fining and punishing offences of a treasonable charac
ter," came before the Senate in regular order on
its final passage,
Mr. Lower asked for the reading of the bill.
The Clerk read as follows :
WEINEMAS, It appears that the existing legis
lation of Congress is deficient in the present
crisis ; therefore
Be 21 Revolved by the Senate and Rouge of Re.
preseutatives of the Commonwealth of Penneylva
nia. in General Assembly met, That the Senators
from this State be instruoted and the members of
Congress requested to procure the immediate
passage of lewd defining and punishing offences
of a treasonable character not amounting to high
treason, and providing for the fair and speedy
trial by an impartial jury of persons charged
with such offences in the loyal and undisturbed
States, so that the guilty may justly suffer and
the innocent be relieved.
Mr. avarsa. Mr. Speaker, I more that the
Senate go into committee of the whole for special
amendment of the bill, as follows
Ffrat. To insert after the word "passage of
laws" the words " in accordance with the Consti
tution of the United States and of the State of
Second. To insert after the words " speedy
trial" the words "in the district where the al
leged crimes have been committed."
Mr. NoceoLs. If it is in order, I desire to
submit an amendment to the amendment of the
Senator from Darks ' providing that the bill shall
pot apply to cases of crimes in States now in re
bellion against the General Government.
Mr. Clortana. I certainly have•no objection to
Mr. LOWRY. lam not going to debate these
amendments on the question before the Sent& at
this time. I would remind the Senator that on
the fourth of March the Congress of the 'United
States will adjourn, and I call upon Republican
Senators upon this floor to stand up to these
resolutions as reported and vote them through.
The time has 461110
The SPEAKER. The Senator must confine him
self to a brief statement of his reasons.
Mr. Lowey. My reasons are that upon - the
fourth of March the Congress of the United
States adjourns, and if these resolutions are to
be in any manner effeetive, their passage must
be secured now. Another reason why I shall
vote against this amendment is that because if
treason is committed it is not committed against
one district alone, but against the Government
and against the whole country. The resolutions
as reported by myself intend that traitors shall
be tried not in our local courts but in pur United
States courts. I will not debate the question
now. I promised the Senate I would not, and it
would not be in order. We want the resolutions
passed, and passed immediately.
Mr. Cruces. I know well, sir, that in this
stage of the proceedings it is not in order to de
bate these resolutions, and I know that if I
attempted to wander into the general subject I
would soon be compelled by the chair to confine
ray remarks to a very brief statement of why I
desire the insertion of the amendments I have
In them I have merely set forth what I think
every Senator upon this floor, every member of
the House of Representatives, and every right
thinking person in the State of Pennsylvania
would desire, and that is that there should not
be any laws passed by Congress or by these
bodies which are not
_in accordance-with the
Constitution of the United States, and which, in
their application to us, are not in accordance
with the Constitution of the State of Pennsylva
nia. That is my simple request. In the first of
the amendments that desire it so fairly and so
simply indicated, that I am surprised the Senator
from Erie should for one moment object to its
being embraced within his resolution. My second
amendment provides that after Congress has laid
down law for the punishment of offences not
amounting to high treason, provision shall be
made for a trial of those offences or crimes in the
districts where the alleged offences or crimes
have been committed, Does the Senator from
Rrie—do any Senators object to that proposition?
. Is it not the principle inherently engrafted upon
[VOL. XXIII.-NO. 45.-WHOLE NO. 1987.
the Constitution of this State and of the United
States, that every one shall be tried by a fair and
impartial jury of his peers, and that the trial shall
take place in the district where the crime is al
leged to have been committed? If that be true,
can any one here, or will any one elsewhere, ob
ject that he who is charged with crimes against
this Stale or ageing the United States should
not be hurried beyond the borders of this State
—should not be deprived of the right inalienably
guaranteed to every man to produce his witnes
ses and to meet his accusers face to face? I say
that any Senator who can object to these amend
ments most do so in a captious spirit, merely for
the purpose of preventing an unanimous vote in
this body, say that being confined to this brief
statement of my reasons for voting for these
amendments, I do so dispassionately, and with
no other desire or any otherpurpose than of pro
moting the common good and the common wel
The Senator from Erie 'talks about the scarcity
of time. I have proposed these amendments so
that the resolutions may be passed by this Leg.
islature unanimously and at once, that they may
go to Congress and there have that effect upon
our Senators and Representatives which the
united voice of the people of Pennsylvania should
have upon them, and which I trust to Cled it will
have upon those higher than they. I desire, if it
is necessary, that laws should be passed defin
ing and punishing these offenses, and that those
laws shall be in accordance with the Constitution
of the United States, and, as far as they affect
Pennsylvania, with the Constitution of Pennsyl
vania, and that the inalienable right guaranteed
to every man of being tried in the district where
the alleged crime has been committed, may re
main inviolate. I ask it for every citizen of our
Commonwealth, be he the poorest or the richest,
the highest or the lowest.
Even did the rules permit, I would not attempt
to debate this question now, for it I did it would
cast us upon a sea so wide, so limitless that the
ordinary time devoted to legislation would not
possibly be sufficient to satisfy all Of the mem
bers on either side of thin chamber who are de
sirous of participating in its consideration.
Mr. Wasort. I desire to ask the Senateepro
posing these amendments to state briefly what
change in Ike bill is made by them. I have not
been able to see that the resolution as offered is
at all changed by the amendments; and if I am
mistaken I certainly want to be corrected. lam
not aware that any further change is made than
simply the addition of a few words, which are
really surplusage in the bill ; and if that be so, I
will of course object to the amendments.
Mr, CLYMER. In reply to the Senator from Tioga,
I will say that if his construction of the amend
meats proposed by myself is the proper and only
interpretation of their meaning and purpose, viz:
that they are mere surplusage, certainly it has
'ever heretofore been the judgment of this Senate
that mere eurpittatip can do no harm. But 1, sir,
intend to satisfy my own conscience in voting
for these resolutions, and to satisfy the conscience
of the people of our State by asserting in sound
and definite terms that we desire to have the
proposed laws in accordance with the Constitu—
tiOn of the United States and of the , Btate of
Pennsylvania. Anti I desire furthermore by my
second amendment, to expressly indicate that
we are unwilling to over-ride the explicit terms
of the Constitution of the United States and of
ilia State, which guarantee to every man a trial
within the district where the alleged offence has'
been committed ; that we aro unwilling to provide
any other than that kind of trial for any who
may be accused.
If this be surplusage—the Senator from Tioga
may be of that opinion—l do not outsider it as
such, those 'whom I represent do not, and I do
not believe that the people of this State will so
Mr. Boutin. I confess, Mr. Speaker, that if
there is anything in the amendments offered by
the Senator from Berke Hide from the enuncia
tion of the most heretical doctrine—a doctrine
which has plunged this country into a terrible
revolution, and created the most horrid civil war
that the civilized world has ever witnessed—
then, sir, I cannot understand the language em
ployed. If the language used is anything more
than mere surplusage, it is simply the enuncia
tion of the doctrine of State rights in a new guise
—a declaration that there can be such a thing as
an exclusive allegiance to the Constitution of the
State of Pennsylvania.; that if that Constitution
contains anything conflicting with the Constitu
tion of the United States, it is in such a potion-
lar higher and superior to the organic law of the
United States. I cannot consent to any such
doctrine. I think thht the organic law is em
bodied in the Constitution of the United States,
and not In the Constitution of the State of Penn
sylvania. For one, air, I shall not be guilty of
the folly, if not the impudence, of attempting to
instruct men who have taken the same oath or
obligation that I have taken to support the Con
stitution of the United States, by Toting for a
resolution in which is incorporated an amend
ment of this kind.
Mr. CLYMEE. I did not desire and do not now
desire to enter upon a discussion of any consti
tutional principle which may be raised by the
amendments offered by myself. One Senator
upon this floor considers theta amendments as
surplusage, another construes them to be enun
eiatory of dangerous .doctrines; I believe them
to be neither the one nor. the other. Ido not
consider that they are surplusage, because they
are designed to throw -around the people the
guards of the Constitution of the United States
and of the State of Pennsylvania. They demand
for our people what is guaranteed to them by
those Constitutions, and they say, in unmistak
able terms to those whom I charge with having
deliberately, wilfully and repeatedly violated
both of those great fundamental charters, " we
will not. put it in your power by our votes to
trample upon our vested rights."
The Senator from Northumberland (Mr Bound)
says that he would deem it an insult thus to in
struct members of Congress. I deem it no insult
to tell men their duty when on repeated occasion,
they have violated it. Sir, I say it deliberately
that I will never vote for this resolution as it has
been reported by the Senator from Erie, giving
to our Senators and Representatives blank in—
structions to pies laws binding citizens of this
State, hand and foot, to obey their accursed in—
novations upon the fundamental laws of our State
Sir, I am unwilling to instruct in any vague
or indefinite manner a body of men who, accord
ing to mg belief and that of the country generally,
have for the sake of mere expediency over and
over again violated the Constitution of the United
States. I wish these amendments to go into the
bill because I do not trust the majority in the
present Congress of the United States—because
I can prove by their record that they have at
different times wilfully, deliberately, and know
ing that they violated their sacred oaths, infring
ed upon the Constitution of the United States. I
say it here, I will proclaim it elsewhere, that it
is the duty of citizens of Pennsylvania no longer
to submit to these infractions of the Constitution
of the United States and of the Constitution of
this State. I emphatically declare it that the
citizens of this State have rights of person and
rights of property guaranteed to them which no
Congress can take away. Aye, sir, Pennsylva
nia has a history extending to a period anterior
to the formation of the Federal Government. She
bad a government which guaranteed to her citi
zens rights of property and rights of person long
before the Federal Government was formed ; and
I tall you, sir, that she never ceded to the Gener
al Government the power to deprive any of her
citizens of those rights. I will never vote for
resolutions, telling our Senators and Represen
tatives in the present Congress, to pass laws
leaving their character to their discretion—what
kind of laws ars they likely to pass? Shall I point
you to their past acts as samples?
To do so would be to produce a record at
which the mind of every good man would stand
appalled. Confiscation and conseriptionaots, acts
indemnifying rulers for unconstitutional and
arbitrary deeds of oppression, an act making
mere evidences of indebtedness a legal tender,
and an act dividing a sovereign State without
the assent of that State—those are fair samples
of the character of laws which we might expect
from the present Congress, did we leave it to
Sir, that body has, within the last six months,
been visited with . the denunciations of an out
raged and indignant people, who rendered a ver
dict against it and its unconstitutional acts,
which (had not that body been lost to all sense
of responsibility) would have been heeded and
obeyed. But that verdict of the people has been
flung back in their faces; they have spurned its
warning and disregarded its pleading. Instead
of causing them to halt in their mad career; it
seems only to have added to their vindictive hat
red towards everything constitutional.
Should we, then, well knowing the true
character of the present Congress, instruot them
as to the passage of laws, leaving it to their dis
cretion as to the nature and kind of laws? For
one, I will never do eo. The Constitution of the
'United States and of this' State have thrown
around me, and around every other citizen, cer
tain safeguards for the'proteetion of person and
property, which no Congress . shall dare invade,
or even be requested to invade, BO far as concerns
my vote. To do so would be to create precedents
which usurpers of power may hereafter cite as
authority for still greater outrages and oppres—
sions upon the rights of the people. We are their
guardians, and around them, though the hum
blest and - poorest, I would erect the strong bul
warks of the Constitution, which no power on
earth shall invade.
For then reasons, I will support the amend
ments offered by myself—unless they are insert
ed in the resolution offered by the Senator from
Erie, it will never receive my vote.

solve itself into committee for special amendment,
as indicated, was not agreed to; and the reso
lution passed finally, by the following vote :

EVIL ABBOOIATIONEL.—In his lecture in Erie
city, Mr, Gough alluded to the unpleasant re
collections stamped upon the memory by bad
society, in the following beautiful language.
The passage will be readily recollected by most.
of his hearers: What you learn from bad
habits and in bad society," said he, "you will
never forget, and it will be a lasting pang to
you. I tell you in all sincerity, not as in the
excitement of speech, but as I would confess
and have confessed before 'God, I would give
my right hand to night if I could fowl that
which I have learned 'in evil sooiety—if I could
tear from my remembrance the scenes which
I have witnessed, the transactions which have
taken place before me. You cannot, I be
lieve, take away the effect of a single impure
thought that has lodged and harbored in the
heart. You may pray against it, and; by God's
grace, you may conquer it, but it will, through
life, cause you bitterness and anguish."
