Gov. Packer's Messaoe. Tho last
Annual Message of Governor Packer to
the Lcgislaturo of Pennsylvania, is a
creditably written and respectable State
Paper. It exhibits a gradual decreaso of
tho Stato debt, and tho sound condition of
tho financial affairs of the Commonwealth.
Except a little evasion of facts, in relation
to tho Fugitivo Slave Law, upon which

A Good Move. Vice President Breck
inridge is understood to havo prepared an
address to tho border slaveholding States,
calling for a Convention representing them,
to meet in Baltimore on the 13th of Feb.
ruary, for tho consideration of their duty
to themselves, and how to prcservo tho
Union in tho current crisis. It is said to
havo been signed already by all tho Sen
ators and Representatives from thoso
States. The call leaves it to tho author!
tics of tho said States how to appoint their
representatives to tho proposed Convcn
This is an excellent move in tho right
direction, and wo hopo will result in great
good to tho Union. Tho border Slave
StatC3 can do much in tho way of arresting
tho secession movements in tho Gulf States,
and wo trust thcro will bo a hearty re
sponse to tho patriotic suggestion of the
Yico President, not only in the bordor
States, but throughout tho entire South.
David Wilmot. It seems that tho
question which has so long disturbed tho
Republican leaders of this Stato, of who
should represent Pennsylvania in tho
Cabinet of Mr. Lincoln, has been settled
by the President elect summoning Mr.
David Wilmot to Springfield. Tho dis
patch states that Mr. Lincoln called upon
Mr. Wilmot at his hotel immediately after
his arrival, and spent somo faro hours with
him in tho course of tho day. It is grati
fying to know that Wilmot's dovotion to
frco soil principles and long and ardent
hatred of tho South is about to'mcct with
an adequato reward. Mr. Lincoln could

, Hon. Peter Kline, ono of tho Asso-
cialo Judges of Columbia county, died at
hit residence in Locust township, on Wed

Judio Kline's mortal remains' were on
yesterday Friday interred in tho Catta

is levying war is thus defiued by tho Su-

Aaron Burr: "To levy war is to raise,
create, make or carry on war. War can
bo levied only by tho employment of actu

I Just!co Marshall.
That was tho nature of tho offenco
which Thcodoro Parker, Wendell Phil
lips, and their associates wcro charged
with when thoy incited the mob in Fan
cm! Hall to go to tho court houso and
rescuo Burns, tho fugitivo slave, in which
unlawful cntorpnso Bateheltlcr, ono of the
marshal'3 deputies, was murdered. And
hero again South Carolina is only follow
ing this cxamplo of Massachusetts in tho
attack upon tho forts, if sho has really
used military forco to take them. That is
treason in tho men who committed and
incited the act, unless South Carolina has
a right to secedo from tho Union. But
it is not treason in tho Stato, for a Stato
cannot commit treason. It is only trea
son in tho individuals who commit tho
overt act. And if it bo treason or misde
meanor, whero is tho authority of the
President to seizo or hang anybody, as tho
Republicans aro insisting he ought to do,
and chargo him with being a traitor for
not doing it? Tho constitution is very
plain on this point. It reads thus :
'The trial of all crimes fhall bo by
jury, and such trial shall be held in tho
Stale where tho said crimo shall havo
"No person shall bo held to answer for
a crimo unless on a presentment or indict
racnt of a grand jury, nor bo deprived of
life, liberty or property without due pro

And "tho accused shall enjoy tho right

This last was tho protection which 1 ar-
kcr and Phillip? and their associates found
when they wcro indicted for what thoy
called "frco speech," in connection with
tho murder of Baeholdcr, nnd tho ob-
struction of tho laws of tho' United States
for the rendition of fugitivo slaves, Tho
President could not scizo them, nor could

upon a very simm iccunicauiy, wmca
was, that the commissioner who issued his i
warrant of arrest had signed it only com
missioner, without saying what commis
sioner ; and tho court held that tho in
dictment, however drawn, could not sup
ply thU deficiency, becauso it could not
go beyond tho description in the warrant.
Jut so President Buchanan has no
power to scizo or arraign or try anybody
in Washington or anywiiero else. If
there havo been acts of treason, thoy havo
been committed only in Soutii Carolina.
Tho parties charged must bo tried iu that
Stato by a jury of the State. '1 hero is
no United States marshal to arrest them,
no district attorney to indict them, no
grand jury to find a bill, no court lo ar
raign and no jury to try them. How then
aro the stops to be taken which tho con
stitution demands iu every caso of alleged
crimoi And if thcro were nil tho officers
of the court nnd juries, everybody knows
that a court in South Carolina would hold
that tho right of secession absolved tho
party accused from his liability to tho
laws of tho United States, and no jury
It would bo tho same iu Massachusetts,
if, under tho personal liberty bill, a fugi
tivo from labor should bo taken beforo a
jury to bo tried. No Massachusetts jury
could bo found to agree that lto was a fu
gitivo slave. Thus it is obvious that Mas
sachusetts and South Carolina stand in
tho same category of disunion and seces
sion, so long as these laws remain on her
statute book, and so long as her people
resist and rcfuso to execute tho laws of the
United States within her borders.
But it is said, suppose the Judge and all
tho United States officers havo resigned
in South Carolina, why don't President
Buchanan supply tho vacancies ? But
what then ? Ho could find no men in
South Carolina to accept tiio offices, and
tho law requires that they shall bo ap
pointed in tho district. Even if ho sent
Northern men thcro they would not be
allowed to act, and if they wcro resisted.
then it comes back to just whero wo start
cd from ; thoso who resisted must be in

Thy child I "i going hence.
From ricatcu, I hear the shour rejoice,

O Mother ! i eep no mnro for tu,
Earth's pains will soon itc e'er.'
"I'm going to a bright, bright place,
her j sorrow is no moro,
Farcwt.ll, then, mother, n long farewell ;
Withjyou, I now must part;
A moment morn on tarth I dwell,
And then, for Ilean, I stait.
Kind father, now t turn to thee,
My purtlug words toglie.
Thou too, wast ever good in um,
Thoutaught'at me, how to lit u,
Vhn Bitan's wilt: 9 would fuin havo load

'Tnna thy sweet toict, that gently said,
'Daughter.TO I. shun that sinful way.
Sometimes, I thought thy uimd&tca hard.
Yes, e'en aclfioh and unkind,
Thy goed advice oft did discard ,
When nonatiitrd to my mind,
Cut, father, dar,.forgivft the crimes
Of childhood's fickle years.
Meet ms abovo, in those aunny cllinos
Whri fliiw no parting tears.
My sitters, brothers,- kindred, deer
Come near'r to your mhtc',
My faltering voice jou scarce can hear,
Come quickly, 'Death 01 will )ou wait.
Your sifter's d)ing words to you.
Are few, and simply plain,
Ee honsiit, pious, steadfast, truo,
And you, the port of Heaven will gain.
He fo re I'm called to pass that' bournv,
From whence no traveller e'er returns ;
Refrre in) masltr calls me borne,
Where tin fire of lore, fonvr burns (
Twin sister, dear, my othirpart,
My more than lifo to nic,
I'd neck to soothe thy broaking hiait,
I'd ktrlte to comfort thee.
Pear sister.'Mm dj iilirnow;
My breath roines frebly up,
Dcath'a ley baud doth press iny brow ;
I awn will drain life's bittor cup.
You'll miia me, sic tor, when I'm gone
In nil your waking hours,
And, when nslecp, you'll dream upon
Somo social Joy of ours.
When morning brenka, and day's grrut king
Lights up this troubled earth,
My voict, with jours, no more will sing
Aloud w ith social mirth.
And, when nt eve ou gather round,
In sons, and nolcmii pinycr;
My voice, with jours, will not ho found,
Hitter, you'll mi us me there.
And, when at night, oti knalone,
And lift your heart In prayer;
Out voice will raise up lo Cod's throne,
Filter, I'll not be there,
Hut, grinyo not, bister, at your loss
Tor it is gain tome.
Tho awctts of life, arc but as dross.
Compared O Cod I to thee,
Ilut, sister dear, I'll ever ho
Thy guardian angel tru,
My augil n ings shall shelter thee,
Life's ttonny journey through.
I'll ever guard thee, from all ills;
I'll bothy beacon star.
Till death, to thco, his nieiiage fills.
Till thou, an angel are.
Our abjfiit broth erf, sister dear,
I'll hiss 011 earth no more.
Dut urge them bister, to pn'paro
Ir Heaven's celestial ihorc,
Oh tell thorn, how, when death's co, baud
Did praap,my throbbing huait,
I praed, that they may reach that land
Where we will never part.
Adieu, dear siiter, I mutt away,

Hoe, angels for my soul bare coma
Dend o'er me, sister, kiss ino now.
Ere I forever leave.
Great GoJ! wllhmeckneia. I now bow.
This kiuful child, O I God reecive."
A moment, all was ti'cHt then,
A filcnt as the grave.
Then, came a sigh, aroan, nnd then
That soul returned to God who gave.
Oh Cod cfun rcyl Cod of love 1

Oh, may they meet that ono hhay c,
