The orchitect of the Universe, and ori
ginntor of tho laws of nature for the rcgu
lation of tho material things of earth, had
no prototjpo for his guidanoe, no example
to imitate, no cluf-iVvaivre to exemplify
perfection. And yet, tho world with all
iw mysteries, its millions upon millions of
component parts, its arcana of co-ordinate
complication, its wondrous workings, its
mighty marhiacry, and its more than ten
thousand dclicato conformations and intri
cate alliances of antagonistic elements, still
revolves on its axis, without varying from
its sphere, and preserves the equilibrium
of each proportion, and every part of its
inexplicable organism. The great first
utcs were right, and tliry are maintained
And as tho origin and object of the
Universe so sublimely accord with tho
laws of God so witii tho science of Go
vernment, in its obedience to tho wisdom
of man. When nature acts upon mturc,
in conformity to tho cardinal canons of
tho codo of the Creator, there is no conflict
of prerogatives and provinces, no discord
or disturbance of harmony; when man
obeys the behests of man, as they are ex
pressed and embodied in organio laws for
tho maintenance of society, there is no
disorder, no violence, no turmoil or trouble
to tho body politic. Whether the system
of government be right or wrong, an auto
cmcy or republic, so long as its laws are
enforced and observed, there is comparative
poica and quiet among tho people, and
security to the State. If the "government
is founded in fallacy, in hereditary right,
ip individual usurpation, injustico or inc
quality, it is safe, as long as the subjects
believe and cbey. But it is contradictory
to truth, and must ultimately bo over
thrawn, as inadequate to the inherent as.
pirations and innate impulses of the humanl
heart. Tho laws of nature maybe misap
prehended. But the result of the experi
ment will attest the truth. And so with
tho laws of man, if founded upon a false
basis, they will sooner or later prove tbeir
Tho government of the United States

The. regulations of the Universe flowed
from tho fountain bead of truth, purity
and omniscience. And as tho latter aro
immaculato, unalterable, and inseparable
from tho economy of nature ordinances
of tho Deity for tho prosecution and per.
fection of the plans of Providenco in all
things pertaining to the matter; so are tho
former an approximation to them as
near as the the crcaturo can approach his
Creator for the guidance of thomind of

and goodness of God, so is the other in
origin and in object, attributable. to the
honesty and wisdom of m.n,
AVc need no analysis of the science of
government, no delicate and difficult com
parison between tho claims of ono set of
men and another, tn establish the theory
that oyr government is tho elect of all
based upon tho proper principles of social
organization. advancing tho interests, and
developing the capacity of man collectively,
without infringing upon his inalionible
rights individually. Under absolute Go
vernment, men are mere mechanical im
plements in the hands of tho despot. In
r ilder monarchies, tho subjects rise higher
j tho scale of humanity, excising intol
' -t in some degree towards tho conduct,
- well aa physical and numerical strength
f it tho support and preservation of tho
3ountry. But in Republics Mono, aro all
ths elements of manhood allowed free
'zeroise, and incitod into full action.
The variety of character forming tho
. turcs of human nature, and tho opposing
uions and conflicting claims of oven a
individuals, would scorn to arguo the
' racticability of controlling millions by
same system of laws. But wherever
m is cultivated, and tho understanding
loped, there is a pervading principlo
. triotism and an innate acknowledgment

under the provisions of a Constitution co
vering the interests of all impartially; with
a Congress snd President representing tho
of tho nation, it would seem at first view
that tho United States constitute a vast

is remembered that each Stato is sovereign

of i s own, tho complex simplicity of our
system is scon.
With elements of ruinous revolution wo
have controlling counterpoises; with re
publicanism ready to run rampant and
riot, wo havo conservative safe-guards and
restraints; with steam to drivo the. ship on,
wo havcsafcly valves and regulators. And
thus it is that whirlwinds of popular pas
sion and excitement, that sometimes agitate
the nation from one extremity to the other,
and whioh, in any other country, would
t'ar tho government from its base, pass
away harmlessly here,
SALE OP THE MAIN LINE
A Stupendous 1-Yaud upon the People of
Tho Legislature of our Stato havo finally
passed tho Bill for the sale of tho Main
Line of our Publio Improvements. It
passed the Scnato on last .Monday, tho
amendments wcro concurred in by the
(louses, and it is now in tho hands of Gov.
Pollock for his signature. This comprises
tho Canals aud Rail Roads, with slight
exception, between Philadelphia and Pitts
burg. Tho price named in tho Bill, at
which it is to be sold, is S7 ,000,000, for
a work which cost near 840,000,000 un-
ess puichased by tho Pennsylvania Hail
road Company, then they are to pay $0,
000,000, being an inorcaso of 81,500,000
over private enterprise. But this last pre
fix is all for " buncomb," as that Company
had tho bill framed to their own wishes,
wis bored through tho I.ogislaturo by their
hired agents, and thoy will bo tho pur
This powerful moneyed monopoly, will
make " a nice thing" out of the Main Lino
Bill. In tho first place, tho Rail Road
Company, nominally, givo ono and a half
millions moro for tho Publio Works, in
paper bonds than any other purchaser, but
in lieu of this, thoy aro forever exonerated
from taxation and havo nothing to pay on
tho purchase until 1800, a credit of thirty
three years, when tho present generation
will have passed away and tho powerful
wealth of this Company, through their
successors in oflicc,can relinquish the work,
or have an Act passed to cvado payment.
Another feature in the bill, equally obnox
ious, is tho provision appropriating Three
Millions op Dollars for the Sunbury
and Erie Rail Road, engineered through
both branches, by tho most dishonest and
unscrupulous hord of peculators known to
We regard tho passage of this bill, under
existing circumstances, as tho most stupen
dous fraud that has ever been perpetrated
upon tho people of Pennsylvania. The
Act of 1832-33, incorporating tho Bank
of tho United States, with a capital of
835,000,000, and for a period of thirty
years, was impotont of harm compared to
tho dangerous powers conferred by this
bill upon that great soulless chartered
monopoly, the Pennsylvania Rail R ad
Company. Wo shudder for the fato of
our country and the liberties of our peo
ple, when bribery and corruption exert an
unlimited influence over tho Halls of Leg-

Tho Burdoll Murder Oaso.
Mrs. Cunningham has been acquitted,
aud Ecklo discharged on his own recogni
zance. If these parties aro innocent, thoy
have suffered a serious injury. If guilty,
thoy return to the world, but never lo know
a happy instant. Tho bloody corpse of
Burdcll will follow them wherever thoy
-r. ... . , 1 , 1...
go. It will naunt mom Dy nay anu uy
night, in Summer and in Winter, in Spring
time and in harvest ; it will poison evory
thought during life, and when the hour of
death comes, it will darken that hour with
an impenetrable gloom, until it harrasscs
tho soul with indiseribablo torture. Wo
hopo both aro innocent; but wc cannot
think so, despite the verdict of the jury
unexplained, when so many circumstances
weigh against them. It was a mistake in
tho prosecution, not to present tho evidence
of Farrcll and others who wero examined
boforo tho Coroner, especially after tho
remarkably denuncitary opening in which
it indulged. Perhaps, though wo miy be
wrong ; and perhaps, good and sufficient
obstacles interpose It becomes Mrs, Cun
ningham, if innocent, to mako it appear so
to tho public. She should neither slumber
nor sleep, untill Dr. Burden's assassion is
ferrctted out. Sho owes such a course to
her protestations of innocence, to the support
which a jury has given her in tho premises,
and to tho fact that tho murdered man she
alleges to havo been her husband. Let a
suitablo reward bo offered. Sho can we'l
spare a portion of tho fortune, she will got
as tho widow of Dr. Burdcll, to have his
murderers brought to punishment, and her
own innocence past doubt established.
Court Proceedings Concluded.
Wo went to Press last week, before we
were in possession of all the proceedings ;
Isaiah Shumin vs. tho other heirs o
Jacob Shuman, dceeaicd. This suit was
or.ee before tried in this court, and reversed
in the Supreme Court in some poiut which
is not very material to tho issue. Tho
question involves is whether a deed was
delivered by Jacob Shuman shortly before
his death to Isaiah Shuman with the in
tention to vest tho titlo of tho property
described in it, or for scmo other temporary
purpose as a loan. In tho latter case tho
plainliflf would not reooive the same property
embraced in this deed by tho will of his
father Jacob Shuman, but as a share of
bis legacy, and not as a gift. Verdict for
tho defendants, Tho caso will again go
to tho Suprumc Court.

Never havo wo hoard a caso based upon
oircumstantial evidence handled with moro
legal ability than was displayed by Mr.
Stokes in this,case. Ono by ono ho demoli
shed tho proofs sot up by tho defence, until
tho defonco itself scorned like the "baseless
fabrio of vision." Ho brought his remarks
to close at -i o'clock, having spoken just four
hours, during which time ho was listened to
with intenso interest by as many people as
cou'd conveniently bo crowded into the
Court House, many of whom were ladies.
At tho closo of Mr. Stokes' address, tho
Judgo immediately began to deliver his
charge to tho iury. It was a long and
elaborate review of the les'imony in tho
case, and the strong points that told against
ho prison' r wore especially tclliog, coming
from tho Court It was nearly six o clock
wheu ho concluded, aud it was impossible
to resist tho conclusion that the result of tho
trial will bo a conviction.
Tho jury retired to dcliberato upon their
verdict as soon as tho ch rgo was conclu

ter, tho Jury returned to tho Court R om,
which was very much crowded. Tho fore
man delivered their verdiotas follows :
" Wo find tho defendant David Stringer
