To the Honorable Senate and House of

'J'he subscribers, citizens of the common
wealth of Pennsylvania, would respect
fully represent that they regard the rigid
of petition us sacred und inviolate, in every
free government : and that while it is the
duty of the governed to preserve a due re
spect for the constituted aulhcrities in the
matter and manner of their petitions, theij
inui claim it an a sacred right, growing
out their inviolable right of petition, that
their petitions should be heard, and acted
upon as their importance demands. It is
not enough that their petitions he read and
referred, or laid on the table. The right
of petition implies a corresponding right
to expect that their wrongs should be re
dressed, in all matters nfl'eeling their per
sons, their interest, and their conscience.
'J'he reception of petitions, and giving them
a respectful hearing merely, while no np-
pr"priate action is had on the matter of
these petitions, is an admission of the in
violability of the ri'sht of petition in theory
but a denial of il in practice. It was one
of the grounds of complaint of the colonics
against the king of (heat Britain, and one
of the reasons why they took up arms to
free themselves from despotic power, that
he had refused to pass laws "of immediate
and pressing importance, wholesome and
necessary lo the public good." That is
of a free government in which the reu-
eonable remonstrance of the people, how
ever small may be their number, is not ac
ted upon, and their wrongs speedily redres
sed. Your Petitioners would represent that
they arc aggrieved by those regulations of
ihegovcrittijenttinder which they live, which
allow the public works to be Used on the
Lord's day. That they have a right to re
gard this regulation as a grievance, is evid
ent from the fact, that vvhtle men who are
engaged in the ordinary avocations of
ihe farm and of the shop on the Sabbath
day, are liable to prosecution and fine, oili
er men employed on the public works arc
required by Ihe agents of the common
wealth to perform their ordinary avocations
on said day under peualry of dismission
from the public employment. U'e are
professedly a people, claiming, and entitled
to enjoy equal rights. This claim is in
herent in the structure of a free govern
ment, such as that under which we live
Now if the agents of ihe government do
require the collectors and those who have
charge of the locks, and the oilicers and
their subordinates on our oilier public
works lo perform their ordinary duties on
the Lord's day, they will thus exclude all
those who wish conscientiously to observe
ihe Sabbath from public employment. An
odious inonoply is thus established, and
ihe enioluments of public employment arc
made the reward of a disregard of the laws j
! of Cod and of the commonwealth,

Komsi-1'11. hon Hungary was invaded by
Jellaebich in September, last, and 50,000 nt
ined men were collected in a fortnight, in
the neighborhood of Stuhlwoissunburg to re
pel the aggression, Kossuth issued a procla
mation, from which wo extract the follow
'It is an eternal law of f!od that whosoev
er abandorelh himself, will be forsaken by
theJird.' 'It is an eternal law that whoso
ever asnisteili himself, him will the Lord ns
sisl.; -It isa divine law that false sweariti"
by its results chastiscth. it-elf.' 'It is a law of
our Lord's that whosoever availelh himself
the triumph ui justice' '.Standing firm on
these eternal laws of the I'niverte, I swear
that my prophecy will le ioliilled it is that
iefrmlinn of Hungary will be effected by
this invitation of Hungary by Jeliachich.'
Thii proclamation, which electrified tho
chivalrous people to whom it was addressed,
concludes in a stylo not unworthy an Eastern
prophet, lioruiisuited to tha genius and ori
gin of his race, by these words: 'Butween
Vespriin and H'eissenburg the women shall
dig a deep grave, in which we will bury the
name, the honor, ihe nation of Hungary, or
our enemies. And on this grave shall sUnd
a monument inscribed with a record of our
shame, 'So Clod punishes eovardire ;? or wo
will plant on it tl5 trees of freedom, entirely
green, from out of whoso foliage shall ba
heard the vuico of God speaking, as from
theliery bush to Moses, 'The spot on which
ihuu Blandest is holy ground :' thus do I re
ward the bravo. To ihe Mavgars freedom,
renown, well being and happiness.'
