LEVI L. TATE, i
SATURDAY MORNINa, DECEMBER 24, I860.
Dr. UK. Stock, a M. of C.
Wo aro gratiCcd to learn, as will also
be thousands of his friends hero and else
where, that our friend and lato fellow
citizen, M. Steck, 51. V., of Mifllinvillc.Co-
lutubia county, who has for the past sever
al years filled tho position of Indian
Agent, at Santa Fe, Now Mexico, under
the General Government, with distinguish
ed ability, was on the Gth of November
elected a Dolcgato to Congress from tho
Territory of Arizona. Dr. Steck is a
sound National Democrat, and possesses
tho ability of making an efficieut and
influential representative in tho National
Congress. For tho foregoing welcome
information, wo ara indebted to his notes
of private correspondence, with our pleas
ant friend F. C. Harrison, 31. 1)., of
Doath of Henry M. Fullor.
Tho Hon. Henry M. Fuller, former
ly a Representative of this District in
Congress, died on Wednesday morning
last, at his residence in Philadelphia. He
was in tho 41st year of hu ago. Few
publio men had moro devoted friends than
Mr. Fuller and his unexpected death will
bo generally lamented.
Tho Philadelphia Evening Journal,
closes a feeling obituary on Mr. Fuller's
death, in words subjoined :
From tho time Mr. Fuller entered into
political life, ho withdrew himself very
"much from the pursuit of his profession as
a lawyer, and for tho last few years ha
been actively engaged in the manufacture
ofironattho Montour Iron Works, in
Montour County. As a man of business,
he was distinguished for tho same sagaci
ty, industry, and integrity which had
characterized his public career. We have
time to-day to add no moro in reference
to this estimable citizen, except that his I
disease, at, nrsi supposed cone ouiy a uaru
eold, contracted some two weeks since,
ran into a typhoid fever that defied tho
best medical skill, and under which he
rank, until he closed his eyes in death this
morning, in tho full faith of a Crucified
Redeemer at peaeo with God and in
charity with all men.
Wo understand that his funeral will
take place on Friday next, at ' o'clock,
if. from ui3 lato residence, at Chest
nut and Sixteenth streets, and that his
body will be removed to. Wilkosbarrie for
burial, by the afternoon train of tho Read
The Legislature of Vermont has
refused to repeal tho Personal Liberty act
of that State. The vote to repeal was 58,
(25 Republicans, 33;Demoer'ats;) tho voto
against repealing were 125, (all Republi
cans. If any thing wero wanting to prove
that the Republieau party of tho North,
ii. a? a mass in favor of a dissolution of
the union, their courso in relation to tho
repeal of tho personal libcry bills would
amply clear tho point.
From tho announcement by Mr. Lincoln,
that "this union could not endure half freo
and half slave," till now ; his party friends
h,ive been doing their best to prove the
Holper Book, sending John Brown into
Virginia, passing personal liberty bills,
stealing slaves, and other sayings and do
ings of tho same general character. And
in all this timo they havo neither dono nor
caid anything to calm tho justly excited
state of the public mind.
0r County Orders. Jno. A. Funs
ton-, Esq., tho very efficient Treasurer of
Columbia County, wo understand, 'pays
all County Orders in cash, and is anxious
that overy out-standing order bo imuie
diatcly presented for redemption. Mr.
Funston is desirous of having tho obliga
tions of tho County entirely cancelled
prior to tho Annual Settlement of the
Auditors and Commissoners, which take
plaoo on tho first week in January. Wo
congratulate tlio Tax payer? of Columbia
county, upon tho important fact, that our
county is oul-cf.debt, with money to spare,
and that our finanoial condition is better
now than at any previous timo during the
last twtnty years, an epoch inaugurated
by tho lato Treasurer, James S. Mo-
Nincii, Esq., and consummated by Mr
TnE Legislature. Tho Stato Legis
lature will assemble at llarrisburg on
Tuesday noxt. A Stato Treasurer will
bo elected on the 8th of January, and a
U. Si Senator (to succeed Mr. Bioler)
on tho 15th of January, when tho now
Governor, will also be inaugurated. The
secession will doubtless bo a very interest
ing one, in. view of tho National difficulties
with which wo aro surrounded, as well as
the finat cial embarrassments growing out
of those troubles. Wo shall endeavor to
keep our readers advised of every thing of
importance that transpires.

Tho liullitin has steadily maintained
that tho business relations of tho country

for political reasons, is absurd. A Tory

Philadelphia Evening Uulhlin,
A few weeks ago wo gavo our readers
an article from tho Bulletin as ono saniplo
of tho chango of tone coming over tho
Republican press; and for tho purposo of
putting on record more fully tho admis
sions of those falso politicians and prophets,
who, beforo an election prato only of dis

the falsehood of their electioneering articles,
and for once publish tho truth.
Tho abovo articlo confirms our former
position. During tLo wholo of Mr. Bu
giianan's administration tho balance of
trado has been in our favor ; conceded
now by a Republican paper, but heretoforo
constantly denied by tho whole party.
What faith can bo placed in tho assertions
of their papers or orators, when in a few
months they themselves admit their utter
Wo hope the people of Columbia county
will bear these things in mind. In order
to prove the fact, that tho balanco of trado
is in our favor, tho Bulletin publishes and
wo copy, for tho reasons assigned above,
an articlo, "Spccio Coming Back," and to i
which also wo direct tho attention of our
readers. Theso aro significant concessions,
and we mean that they shall not bo lost

TnE Finances of Pennsylvania.
Wo congratulato our readers, among all
tho causes of trouble, upon the bright
exhibit made by tho Auditor General of 1
Pennsylvania. Nearly S700,000 has been
paid into tho sinking iund during tho year
ending November 30th, and the State debt
has been reduced by that amount. Ihis
has been accomplished while an equal sum (
of 8700,000 remains in tho Treasury ready .
for the February interest,
Tho interest payable by tho Stato is
gradually sinkiug under tho operation of
our admirable fiuaucial system. 1 Ins year
it is reduced to 1,931,205. 5he direct j
tax is reduced to 81,444,074, or nearly j
half a million below tho interest of tho

seems now to bo holding a controversy l

Spocio CoirtluG Back.
It will be seen that the course of specie
is beginning to be reversed. It is comiug
back from Europe. The reason is that the
supply of exchange to bo drawn against
exported produce has been very large, and
tho confusion in tho money market and
want of confidence has prevented this ex
chango from being merchantable. Hence
a considerable part was not taken by ban
kers, and the debt against England which
is thus accumulating is being paid in specie.
It may seem odd, at first view, but it is
truo that a slower export will relievo tho
country, for this reason, that it will lessen
tho demand for exchange. Just now do
mestic aud foreign exchango are in bad
condition, owing to tho want of confidence,
which latter resulU from political causes,
and not proper financial ones. In fact, we
aro informed that cotton U going forward
more slowly, so that both these causes of
relief are beginning to operate. If London
can spare the rpecic, and tho shippers on
this side can afford to operato more slowly,
the blocking of trado approaching a dead
look, will bo relieved.
It is obvious, from tho above statement,
that but for this political madness of the
moment, loosening tho bonds of confidence,
tho country would bo in a highly prosper,
ous condition, jut as the Bulletin has al
ways said from tho beginning of this panic.
The Nullification Difficulty of
1833 How it was Settled. The po.
liticiaus who aro opposed to a compromise
of our present sectional difficulty aro con
ttautly referring to tho ciisis of South
Caroliua nullification of 1833, which,they
tell us, was put down by forco by the
Government of General Jackson. With
out, in tho prcsont connection, referring
to tho widely different 6tato of our polili
cal affairs now from what thoy wcro then,
it is sufficient to say that that difficulty
was settled, not by coercion, but by
compromise. South Carolina demanded

In other words, thero can bo no union
of States except by forco or on equal
terms. For nearly ninety years from
1775 till 1800 the public idea of tho in
stitution of slavery has found it compati
ble with tho union of Colonies and of
States. It is no longer so. Tho opinions
of men must change, and their passions
must moderato, or we must not only di
vide, but must afterwards praw tho sword,
and, if possible, destroy each other. If
God has forsaken lis, our country is
wrecked. If God is still gracious to us,
a way will bo found to cxtricato it from
impeudiug revolution. At present tho
human mcann of deliverance seem to me
to consist merely in these two great con
victions, which, after all, are settled deep
ly iu the hearts of men ?.crywhcrc,uaiuc
ly : that there aro unspoakablo evils in
tho dissolution of the Union, and that
there are inestimablo bleisings in its pres
ervation I do not see how these couvic
tiohs aro to make themselves effectually
manifest ; but neither do I see it to be
impossible that they should do so.
If we can escape immediate convulsions,
what will occur, in my opiutou,will bo tho
gradual consolidated of the entire South,
in one opinion, and upon ono man (proba
bly Mr. Breckinridge) by 1801; and the
pcrmanont triumph of the Democratic
paity in 1864, by means of tho united
South, and a ceitaiu portion, more or less
considerable, of tlio Northern States.
