FUGITIVE SLAVE LAWS IN
The ultra disunion Locofoco presses of
this and other States class Pennsylvania
among the States that have laws upon
their statute books which prevent the re
capture of fugitives from labor. Such is
not the fact. All the laws on this sub
ject in Pennsylvania give the pursuers of
fugitives from labor just such power as
the Southern men themselves desire.—
None of our officers, such as Aldermen,
Sheriffs or Constables, can, interfere with
them, and the United States Marshals
have entire control over them. The fol
lowing law was passed in 1847, and signed
by that well known Democratic Governor,
FRANCIS R. SHUNK. It embodies the
real sentiments of our citizens, that of
non interference. We are in favor of Jet
ting the South regulate their own affairs.
If they want slaves let them keep them,
and not ask us to interfere in the least.
Our people don't want to be employed in
hunting negroes, but they are willing to
permit Southern men to come here, claim
them lawfully, and carry them away.
Here is the law as it is now in force. It
can be found in the Pamphlet Laws, of
1847, pages 206-207-208, and we hope
that our dough-faced Democratic friends
will read it carefully. We omit the 6th
section, as it was repealed in 1852, being
deemed objectionable to the South, and
in conflict with the compromise law of
AN ACT to prevent kidnapping, preserve the
public peace, prohibit the exercise of certain

A. Question of Veracity on a "Queer
Our neighbor of the Sentinel, the offi
cial'organ of Gov. PACKER and Attorney
General KNOX, denies, "by authority,"
that the proceedings against the Pennsyl
vania Railroad Company were not stayed
by the Attorney General, and denounces
our statement as a gross mistake. We are
not desirous of misrepresenting any one;
and when we make assertions against high
officials we are generally booked up. We
refer our neighbor, and the Governor him
self, to the following official document, on
file in the Sheriff's office,which says clearly
that the STAY WAS MADE WITH CONSENT
OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL l Read the
In the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania in and
for the Western District.
In the matter of the petition of the Pennsyl
vania Railroad Company for the issuing of cer
tain writs of supersedeas to certain writs of
execution issued out of the Court of Common
Pleas of Dauphin county.
And now to wit, November 20, 1860, upon
the presentation of said petition to the Court
"It is ordered that the same be filed, and fur
ther, it is ordered that a rule be entered to show
cause why writs of supersedeas shall not issue
out of this Court to.set aside and supersede two
certain writs of scieri facias issued out of the Com
mon Pleas of Dauphin county at suit of the
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania against the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company to November
term, 1860, No. 81 and 82 of said Court ; and
further, it is ordered that said rule stand over
for argument at Philadelphia, on the first Mon
day of January, A. D. 1861, and that mean
while all further proceedings under said writs
of Fi Fa or under either of them be stayed.
With consent of the Attorney General

You will take notice of the hereunto annexed
order, this day made in the Supreme Court of
Pennsylvania at Pittebnig.
THOS. J. KEENAN,
Proth. Sup. Court, W. D
One word to our neighbor : Will you
be honest enough to copy the , official or
der, and contradict the statement that we
were trying to place the Attorney Gener
al in a false position ?
We have no feeling in this matter, but
when men high in office attempt to im
pugn our motives, they must look-out and
remember an old proverb: 'Mn'.e living
in glass houses should not throU; stones!'
AN AGRICULTURAL EDITOR CHARGED
WITH LIBEL.—We are not aware that
there has previously been a case on record
of a suit for libel against an agricultural
editor. The rule has been broken at last
by an action brought against the editor of
the American Agriculturalist. The com
plaint is that in an article cautioning per
sons against investment without personal
examination, a damaging libel on the
waste lands on Long Island was contained,
and $lO,OOO damages are claimed by the
plaintiffs, who are interested in a portion
of this particular tract.
THERE are those who seem to believe,
should South Carolina and Georgia secede,
that all our factories would have to stop for
the want of cotton. But secession, even if
consummated, will not abrogate the laws
of trade. Cotton, like everything else,
always has gone where the best price
could be realized for it, and it always will.
Secession or no secession, those who raise
cotton will want to sell it; and they will
sell it at just such points as will return
to them the largest amount of cash. A
contrary idea is as absurd as that secession
will extend or strengthen slavery.

FROM THE FEDERAL CAPITAL.
Correspondeoes of the Telegraph.l
WAsmisoros, November 24, 1860
I read an article in the TELEGRAPH, perhaps a
week since, which met my most hearty appro
val, as well as the commendation of several
gentlemen in this city, to whom I presented the
paper for their perusal. The article referred to
(the title of which 1 cannot now call to mind)
discussed the position of Pennsylvania both be
fore and since the Presidential election. It is a
well known fact, that as soon as the once pow
erful Democratic party was divided at Charles
ton, and as soon too, as its leaders were ma
lignantly antagonised at Baltimore, the people
of Pennsylvania began to take the highest con
servative as well as independent position, de
claring at the same time au adhesion to the
Constitution and the Union, which was in con
sonance with their ancient faith and action in
all their relations to the country, its peace, its
prosperity, its progress and*its grandeur. The
factions which sprang from the Conventions of
Charleston and Baltimore, each headed by an
angry and vindictive leader, found but slight
encouragement among the people of Pennsylva
nia, and nothing was more ludicrous than the
efforts of the leaders of both to fuse on what
they termed a platform of mutual concession of
principle, but which was in reality only , the ex
pression of a mutually entertained hope of gain
ing power by such a fusion, and the consequent
retaining of place and position in the pay of
the government. The independent masses of
Pennsylvania understood this plan, and at once
harmonised in an organization on principle to
defeat its operation. The people of no other
State in the Union were prompted by the same
motives in casting their votes for the Presiden
cy, because the people of Pennsylvania seemed
to feel that a crisis was approaching iu which
her potential voice would be heard proclaiming
peace where there was trouble, and ensuring
safety where danger threatened. This spirit
seemed to animate the Pennsylvania delegation
at Chicago, when they so gracefully yielded the
claims of the man whom Pennsylvania had so
unanimously, in her State Convention, present
ed to the Union as a candidate for thePresiden•
cy. That delegation seemed to act in obedience
to that popular feeling which only found ex
pression at the late election, and fitting was it
indeed, that after Pennsylvania had presented
Abraham Lincoln to the country as a Presiden
tial candidate, the same State should endorse
his nomination by casting her vote for electors
in his favor, by a inanity of nearly one hun
dred thousand. What better evidence need the
whole country have of the devotion of the people
of the North, to the Constitution and its com
pacts ? If they desire a stronger security they
must seek it beyond the loyalty and devotion of
the people, and if the leaders of the turbulent
factions in the South, cannot repose confidence
in the conservatism and integrity of the people
of Pennsylvania, as a guaranty that their rights
will be maintained and their wrongs vindicated,
then indeed is the sovereignty and security of
legislation a farce, and government itself the
veriest nonsense that ever wasinvented. -
___=._-...vic1. - at - thia - South is beginning to
abate, as men reason more calmly together on
the subject of secession and dissolution. The
first ebulition of the disunion temper was of
course wild and defiant, but when the cost of
starting an independent State was counted, and
the expense of maintaining an independent
government fairly computed, men began to
ponder and to pause, as well as calculate their
chances and the danger of rashly severing their
connection with a government to which they
are indebted for all their growth and glory,
and tb which they also owe their hopes of fu
ture progress and development.' The pyre
tecnics of the fierce Palmetto orators are giv
ing way to what I once heard a quaker friend
describe as the "gut argument." The sober
sense of the people is begining to prevail, and
as they contemplate the embarrassments which
even their threats of secesssion have entailed
on themselves, they begin to shrink from the
awful danger and utter ruin which practical
disunion would impose on themselves and
their posterity. The simplest facts, too, seem
to demonstrate this danger and ruin. You
will recollect that a paragraph went therounds
of the northern press about a year since, stat
ing that the hay crops of the north and north
west were worth more than the cotton crops of
the entire South. At the time this careless
declaration of what then seemed an insignifi
cant fact, attracted little attention, but a
month's excitement and panic at the South,
have demonstrated the importance of a north
ern hay crop, and how much the South de
pends on this single article. Of course north
ern shippers hesitate to forward produce to a
market where customers openly threaten the
repudiation of their indebtedness to the North,
and in stopping the importation to the South
of this single article of hay, the cry is raised
that famine and starvation prevails among the
beasts of burden, and that therefore, labor
must cease, beceause blood, not steam, consti
tutes the motive power which keeps labor in
operation in the South. I mention this fact
merely to show how slight are the dependen
cies on which not only rest the securities of
the Union, but in which are reposed the pros
perity and comfort of the people. A blade of
grass or a bud of clover, on the one side, with
a cotton strand on the other, form the gordon
knots which bind together this Union of States.
Assail these, and political malice and malevo
lence give way to real honest and hearty ef
forts to preserve a Union in which the seed of
cotton and the seed of clover may hereafter
become the emblems of our national wealth
The agents of the associated press, with the
home correspondents of the sensation journals
In the North, are still busy selecting a Cabinet
for Lincoln ' s Administration. Of course the
President elect is duly imbued with gratitude
for their disinterested labors in this particular,
but it is not altogether certain whether Old
Abe will accept the material which is now so
abundantly offered out of which to form a Cabi
net. As I wrote you in a former letter, both
the supporters and opponents.of Lincoln agreed
that Pennsylvania would occupy an important
position in the new-Cabinet. This seems to be
accorded to the .I(eystoneState by the Bepub-
Item party, for the gallant service which she;
performed in the Presidential struggle, while it
is openly declared that it would do much to
wards eliciting the confidence of the South, and
southern men are constantly attesting this
faith in the conservative and Constitutional de
votion of the people of Pennsylvania. It only
remains for the party in PennsYlvaula to indi
cate who that man shall be to occupy a position
in the new Cabinet. We do not want an ex•
treme man, whose opinions on the agitating
questions of the day would still further in
crease the acrimony and animosity entertained
by the extreme men for each other in all sec
tions. What the nation n lett Penn
sylvania possesses and can present, is a states
man of business habits and qualifical ions, who
will devote himself to the cart: of the interests
and the furtherance of the prosperity of the
country, instead of delude the people with the
discussion of abstract questions of local pri
vilege, or the analyzation of such theories of
government, the practical operation of which
is to subserve the ambition of a few, instead of
benefit the condition of the great mass of men.
The machinery of this Government is becoming
too complex to be moved by the mere patriot
and statesman governed by his political mo
tives. We want, therefore, men who are ac
quainted with the wants of the people by min
gling with them in their daily pursuits, by en
them in their...enterprises and parti
cipating in their activity and industry. Penn
sylvania has such a man in Simon Cameron, to
whom the conservative men of the South as well
as the North, look as fitting of all others from
the great mecnanical and industrial State of
Pennsylvania to occupy a position in the Cabi
net of Abraham Lincoln. It is for Pennsylva
nia to decide whether this hope and expecta
tion shall be realized. INQUIRER.
