Wc call attention to tho very able and
lucid address ofChas. 11. Buekalewypiib
lished in to-day's paper. At any time
an address on public affairs from this dis
tinguished, clearheaded statesman would
command the- respectful consideration of
his lellou-. citizens, who, without uistin
ction of party, appreciate his raro ability,
solidity of judgmont, and honesty of pur
pose. At this particular timo, his opinions
on tho groat qucsliono of the day, are of
more than ordinary interest, and should
bo attentively read and considered by all
vho havo tho interests ol tho country at
Curtin in a New Character.
Our excontrio and redoubtable Gov
ernor seems to uo dotormincu to ex
haust tho subjoct by appearing in all
sorts of costume!.', metaphorically speaking,
for it is not known that ho donned the
hoops,; hut his last nppcaranco is cither,

Fish Human iu soino forgotten play.
-Certainly his speech has neither dignity,
jiolitoncss nor decency. Timo would havo
vindicated him from the chargo if false,
aud it remains to bo seen if wrong motives
woro imputed to him.

Wo quote from a debate in the Senate
March 11th, 1802.
Mr. CLYMER. But, says the Senator
from Bradford, if this country could be
restored to peace, and could go on from
age to age prosperously, with this insti
tution intact, ho would bo inclined
Mr. LANDON. The Senator is not
right, sir. I wish to bo rightly represen
ted. I want tho whole of the quotation.
Mr. CLYMER, reading from the
speech of Mr, -Landon in the Rccoid."
41 God has made certain men with their
faces a little darker than mine ; but if they
arc capable of enjoying freedom; liberty
and the pursuit of happiness, it is your
duly to give it to them ; and woe to the
govercmcnt, sooner or later, that refuses
to do it, and throws itself athwart their
pathway of progress. I am no infidel ;
but if wc, as a nation, can hold up and
perpetuate slavery ,agc after ago, sanction
it legally and christen it ecclesiastically,
and at the same timo prosper ourselves,
.bo free, happy and great, escaping all the
consequences divinely threatened against
injustice and oppression "
Mr. LANDON. That is correct.
Mr. CLYMER, reading further
"then this, if anything, would constrain
ma, not only to question the bible, but to
doubt the very existence of tho Deity
Mr. LANDON. I endorse that.
Wo quote from a debate in the Senate
March 11th, 1802.
Mr. CLYMER. Mr. Speaker, the
Senator from Bradford asserts that "this
question of slavery meets us everywhere,
it meets us here, at home, and on the
stern and bloody battle field," and ex.
claims in excited and angry terms iive
must meet it." But how? "Ncccssaiily
in one of three ways," says the Senator.
"First we can submit to bo ruled and
ruined by it. Second we can continue
as tee havs been doing fight the rebellion
tvi'.h one handjtnd hold up slavery with the
other , until both par tits are exhausted

compelling the sccedtig States to fall bade

scntatin and all its concomitants as afore
time. I have feared," says tho Senator
from Bradford, uthcrc were too many men,
in high places who desire this ?nodc of set-
tlcmcnt." But the Senator asserts "this
would be a false and fallacious euro for
existing ills. Let no one delude himself
and others, by pointing to this as the
pathway from the wilderness to tho prom
ised land. It ncver should, it never can,
it never will be done"
