TEE =somas MANSION.'
Mr. mull moved that the special cOnmdt
tee to which was referred that portion of the
Governor's Message, referring to the furnishing
and repairing of the Executive Mansion, be dis
charged from the further consideration of the
Agreed to.
Qn motion of Mr. SMITH, , the Senate then
roceeded to the consideration of the bill re-.,
ported by said committee, - providingfor -the-ap
propriation of $5,000, for the purpose of de
fraying expenses ,attending tke .furnishing and
repairing of the Executive Mansion.
Ur. - PENNEY believed'the neceEtaties of 'the
case to require thet a better building than that
at present occupied as such, should be provided
for the Ghovernor's residence. He further.said:
The Executive. Mansion should' be located in a
situation more suitable to the wants of the
Chief Executive. I believe it to be the wish of
lour people, at large, that a more convenient
mansion should be furnish6d for this purpose.
For this ,reason, I am prepared to, vote against
the passage of tin73.bill in question, appropria
ting five thousand dollars to making'reriaira to
this -mansion ;as tbelieve that we-are merit Y..
throning away- money' 'irerrirg such repairb,
for in the course of this or next session we
shall be called upon to authorize the erection
of another mansion. -
Mr.' SMITH. k concur' with the Senabn (Mr.
PENNEY) that the mansion now occupied' by . the
Governor is not such a one as the Legislature
should offer to therChief Executive of the State,
for his residence therein. Our accommodations
for that officer, at'present, are entirely unwor
thy of the dignity.and character of our. State.
The repairs necessary to be made to this man
sion, cannot be made at a-less cost thau-that
estimated by the committee who had - the Mat
ter'in charge. - •
Mr. PENNEY asked, for" information,whe
ther it 'was customary for the Statp, at; any
time, to furnish the Governor's mansion.
Mr. SMITE replied that a great portion of
the 'present furniture? of .the house bad, been
purchased along with the mansion:..
Mr. PENNEY moved to'strike out the words
"five thousand," and insert "twenty-five hun
dred" for furnishing,the house.' .
Mr. GREGG: Every gentlemen who has
been in. this honk?, must be aware of .the need
for repairs in' whiah it stands. There is no
prospect of the Capitol being "removed' from
this city for a: period of perhaps four or five
years, and repairs are now needed to the man
sion, in order to enable the GOvernor 'to be
properly accommodated.
Mr. HIESTAND offered an amendment to
the amendment,.to add that $5OO be. appropri
ated for improvements to the mansion. '
Mr. SMITH believed that the appropriation
fixed by the special Committee, wee required
for the purposes stated.
. •
Mr. CLYMER stated a similar opinion.
Mr. LANDON inquired whether the special
committee had fatly agreed upon any specific
amount •
Mr. FINNEY informed that the amount: of
$5,000 had been fixed upon.• ' •
Mr. LAI4DON then. &Oared that le would
vote in such a manner as would 'approve the
action of the committee. ~ , • . • -
The amendment to the amendment proposed
by Mr. lIIESTAND,-was not agreed to.
The question recurring on the -amendment
of Mr. PENNEY,
The yeas and nays were required by Mi.

The committeet 'of the. Hon* of Represent

the Senate to Hie Hall of the House of Repre

Senate was Ketone&
The.,Senate then proceeded in charge of the
House cemmittee, to the Hall of the House of
Representatives, for the purpose of opening and
publishing the returns of the late election for
Governor of this Commonwealth.
All 2 o'clock M. the Senate returned.
Mr. IRISH, Teller 013 the part of the Senate
in the Convention which had just - adjOurned,
deliyered a report setting forth the total num
ber 'of votes received by the candidates for
Governor in the late election.
The subject previously under consideration
by the Senate, was then taken up, and the
question recurring on the first section of the
Mr. WHARTON said : Thtre are divers
ways in which a legislative body may be waste
ful of the public 'funds, the most common of
which consist in being both extravagant and
penurious. Gentlemen who oppose the passage
of this bill, act, I doubt not, in accordance with
their' ideas of the duty devolving upon, them
but in my opinion, they take the pentirious
plan of being wasteful. The committee ap
pointed by the Senate was composed of compe
,tent men, who carefully examined the subject,
and unanimously reported that the needed re
pairs etc. proposed' to be Made would require
an expenditure of $5,000 lam satisfied that
the present mansion is not a fit residence for
the Chief Executive officer of Pennsylvania ;
and that before the end of this session we will
be called upon to report a bill Making• provis
ion for another residence. I believe, however,
that if the repairs now suggested are made, the
present residence of the Governor can be so
re-fitted as to make it suitable as an Executive
mansion, for years to come. •
Mr. BOUND. I dislike exceedingly to oppose
the appropriation for re-fitting the Governor's
mansion. The appropriation of this Amount
appeareto me like placing a jewel in a spider's
web, as I have been informed that the present
building, though requiring repairs, would not
answer the purpOses for which it is designed, if
such repairs me Made. - •
Mr. McCLURE called the attention of the
Senatorlrom Northumberland (Mr. Boman) to
the fact that the predecesior of the present Gov
ernor Wes CoMpelled, not being a man of inge
pendent means, tolive the whole of his official
terin in the little room of a hotel. •He be
lieved that the present mansion was not such' as
comported with the character and dignity of
the State. If the Legislature did not intend to
make the residence of the Governor comfortable
as such; : there Was ne benefit to be derived from
a small appropriation: '

Senate Bill, No, I.;Joint "Resolutions relative
to the,maintepance of the. Constitution and the
Union came up in order on second reading. =
The first, section of the bill having been read,
Mr. , Vir.HARTON, moved to amend the same
by striking out iaafter - the word "Resolved,"
and inserting the following:
Wssauss„ A crisis, in our national affairs has
arisen out of seeming and imaginary ratheithan
real difficulties rewriting from, the long exciting
controversy, beiween ambitious.partizans in the
North and South, and in relation to which the
public;mind has become inflamed, bitter jealous
ies 'engendered, fraterial strife begotten and the.
,permanence of the Union endangered; and ;
WHEREAS, .Thiscrisis ...?..,Ithougir. resulting in

and decided, action on the part of those who,

and necessity`preserving for. ou*elves Wand
our posterity the blessings of this best Pfeil the'

Resoiverl o That the people of 'Pennsylvania
earnestly desire by conciliation and comproi:nise
;to -bring back tbe worliisig_of the National
Government to

fathers of the Constitution, if it can be so affect
ed, and thereby...restore,hony to the country,
re-establishfraternaVfeilmgand inculcate that
love of the Union : always bur Pride and boast.
Resolved, That repognisnig l all our territorial
possessions as the, common heritage of the peo
p/e,-We, as aineastire and:l:deans of conciliation,
are willing to sub-divide this domaiiiinto States,
and admit them into our common brotherhood

promise line be restored; and South of that line
the citizens be 'permitted to choose between
slavery and freedom as their interests may dic

National Legislature this Prolific source of strife.
Resolved, -That- to-remove- another cause cf
angry discussion.and acrimony, our opinion
that on the* one liarld'all legislation in the dif
ferent free States which - seems - even to discoun:
tentinee tfie. recap:tine of fugltive slaves, should
promptly be repealed ; and that on the Other
hand, ,the ,fugitive Slave lasi should be so
amended that - an-officious officer cannot call

,Asotii - sentiment upon the general
subject ofcontroversy; that while ..we will try
all reasonable efforts-to - maintain and -sustain
our Southern fellow citizens. in_the
of all"their 2,ightl,_ . it is our belief
that the Northern sentiment is (leadenly and
unchingdablytbppOied to the extension of Sla
„very, and that tine sentiment has been greatly
strengthened by the, frequent %dignities and,
outrages to the persons..of .Northern people, in
Southern States, inflicted for. some ,onrual ex

of retaliation; , and ;also because of the steady
and persevering: hostility ofthe_ oOtt9D: Stoto to
a fair protection to free labor and the Home
stead Bill. . •
Resolved, That we are in favor of the Union
of these States, and, that we sustain the
Executive in maintaining the Constitution and
the Union, with all their compromises and
guaranties inviolate, and that if all measures
looking to ebnciliation and compromise should
unfortunately fail, we are in favor of the stem
enforcement of the Constitution and laws of the
United States at any cost, and all hazards, be
lieving that tolerated secession, or anllification,
would be the destruction of this best, of govern

which the Constitution, wsiely administered,
secures - and protects ;• the extinguishment of
every patriot's 'hopes, and .the most direful
event that could happen this country, or the
Mr. WELSH moved as an amendment to the.
amendment, to strike out all after the word
"Resolved" in the first line of the amendment
just read, and insert another series of resolu
tions, which will• be pablished hereafter."
Mr. SHIM. lam not surprised that the
Senator from York should have introduced sub
jects that might be properly termed lineations
of political 'controversy relative to the present
condition of our country. But I confess that
I was somewhat surprised when the Senator
from Huntingdon (Mr. WHARTON) introduced a
similar proposition. The original .resolutions
that I offered some time ago, the printed co
pies of Which have been lying upon our desks
for several days:, have been so carefully drawn
up as to avoid all allusion to any of the politi
cal controversies of the day. But one idea
runs through the whole of them ; that is, the
preservation of the Union, which has been
assailed by the people of certain States. There
has been :'a careful avoidance of everything
having an :offensive interpretation -towards
any political party whatever. The sub
ject of . slavery is not alluded to in • tbem,
except. so far as to acknowledge the right
of the people of the slaveholding States to the
unmolested and Uninterrupted enjoyment . of
their local institutions, -which is a doctrine
which no' man willi dare to deny.' Our Legis
lature in 1835, when there was a similar crisis,
took the same, view- of this question that is
taken in the resolutions I have proposed, with
reference - solely to the maintenance of the
Union and the supremacy of the Constitution,
and the laws passed under it. I bola the laws
of that session in my hands ; and the circum
stances attending the passage of certain reso
lutions, relative to the maintenance of the
Union, are familiar to every gentleman ac
quainted with the history of those limes, as ie
also the presentation, on that occasion, of the fa
mous proclamation to which we all listened on.
Tuesday last, relative to the nullification, by
South Carolina, of -the revenue laws, at that
time. That is the whole question under
lying the proposition Of the Southern cotton
States. We talk about ...the slavery ques
tion,, but the people of .the' South have no
more' interest Ifl tharthan we have. It is the
questioxr - --of- I...sAcCtioo---prou -to
orgy-born-laborer—and they (the 'people of the
South) have beenTrArik - enough to acknowledge
this fact in their proclamations. They have
been, honest enough to say so in their declara
tion of.teparation--but we shirk the question
we attribute the present agitation of the
Country to questions having no existence what
ever in their .cause of- grievances. In
18$3; _Mr. Mama, then a Senator from Per
ry county, subsequently a member of Con
gress, and still , more subsequently Bee-,
rotary ; of the Commonwealth, introduced
the resolutions, a report of which, in the
Senate Journal of that year, I hold in my
hands. , They were passed unanimously by the
Senate, and I believe met with the same
unanimity in the House. I have not the House
Journal for - that year, and, therefore, cannot
positively make•the assertion.
Mr. HALL. Such is the fact. "
Mr. SMITH. The Senator from Blair informs
me that lam correct in my assertion. The
resolutions are as follows :
Resolved, Ry the Senate and Rouse of Repre
sentatives of the .Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,
in General Assembly met, That the Constitution
of the United States, and the laws of the
United States, made in pursuance of the Consti
tution, are the supreme law of the land to
which every citizen of the United States owes
obedience, and that no authtirity - whatever can
release him from his
.obligation to obey„ or re
quire'hira to take any oatla — or enter into any
engagement inconsistent with. such, obligation,
and that every pretension on therart of a State
or l any portion thereof, so to feledse any citizen
of the United States, or scao require of him, is
unconstitutional and without the least founda
tion of right. and can afford neither shelter nor
excuse for offences he may commit against, the
laws of the United States.
Resolved, That no portion of the citizens of
the United States, have a rightful power to
render invalid ) an act of the Congress of, the
United States, duly made by the people's re-
Essentatives, and approved by the Executive,
of the , mode prescribed by. the Constitution,
nor to nullify the same either generally or
within particular distiicts ; bat that every such
act of Congress continues in full force e' eery.
Where within the United. States nOtWithiland
ing any such asserted nullification, and all per
sons who resist its execution, offend against the
Constitution and laws of the 'United States, and
are liable to prosecution and punishment for
such offence.
Bawled, That no State has a right to with
draw from the Union, and to declare itself in
dependent of it and that every attempt to do
so, would be a virtual infraction of the Consti
tution of the Halted States, justifying and re
quiring the use of constitutional measures to
suppress it.
/Peso/ad, That the faithful execution of all
lowa of the United States made in the mode
prescribed by'the Constitution - , is - a - duty en
joined upon the President of the United States,
in the constitutional discharge of which he is
entitled to and ought to receive the aid and
support of every citizen of the Union.,
Resolved, That it is the clear and imilsr.utable•
right of Congress, to impose duties won im
portations and of the governinent of the -Uni
ted States to collect the duties payableby law
upon goods imported into every part of the
Union„and that every -resistance to the collec
tion of the sanae,ls_a_lLAtrOne against the Con
stitution and--laws of the United States, and
that the offenders are liable to prosecution and
pnnishment for , such offence.
Resolved, That in enforcing, by all constitu
tional means, thelaws 'Passed by Congress, for
imposing and collecting ditties upon goods im
ported into the United States, and all other acts
of the Congress of the , United States, and in
bringing to punishinent ail persons whounder

tor and Representative in Congress from this
Commonwealtfil and the several Governors of
the respective States and territories of these

_ .
It will, be observed by careful reading of the
resolutions I have offered, that they correspond
in spirit and in temper with the resolutions that
were passed by the Legislature of 1833 on the.
same subject, and are in reference to the de
scendants of the same - individuals who then
agitated this disunion question in the South.
I believed, when they were offered, that they
would receive the unanimous support of this
Senate. I did not +pink -that. there was a man
in this Senate who would vote "no" on the
final passage of those resolutions. I did not be
lieve that there, was a Senator here who would
be willing to - hazard the harmony that should
be shown in reference to this subject, by intro
ducing party resolutions on a question in which
our whole country:Us involved. Nor do I be
lieve it now. I cannot think that the Senators
who_ have offered these amendmentswill refuse,
after they have seen that they will be voted
down, to give their .assent to these resolutions
offered- y myself, free as they are from all
party bias and sectional feeling. I hope we
will come to a direct vote on the adoption of
the principle of sustaining the Union, and
thereby, the National Government in its ef
forts to protect that. Union and enforce, the
Mr. SMITH then moved that the time of the
morning session be extended indefinitely.

Mr. WHARTON delivered a lengthy argu
ment in fattor of the adoption of the resolutions
presented by himself, urging that while they
did not embody the platform of arty political
party, they fully, met the great underlying
question in the present controversy—that of
obedience to the Revenue laws of the United
States government. The speaker held that
compromises were demanded and should be
made by the people of all sections of the con
federacy, for in the adoption of Conciliatory
measures alone was 'the country tofind that
prosperity which for eighty years hid attended
its progress. He ohargbd . ' upon 'tbe - Deme•

Mr. WELSH opposed the adoption of the
