Whoever controls ;he mind of •a, men con-

sincerely' believes that the Popo speak's by
the authority'of God, and is therefore nor-
er, wrong, will be prepared to submit, to his
commands, whether they be of a spirittud
or temporal nature. If the Pope condemn
an act of legislation a.'contrary to the Di

according to the doctrine sot forth by this

Temporal Supremacy, of the Pope is made

,And, again, in another passage of this
Address,, we find it holding language .us
"We maintain, indeed, the superiority' of
the spiritual firer the temporal order. We
maintain that the temporal ruler ii :bound to
-conform his euactments to the Divine Law.—
We maintain that the Church is the $u me
Judge of all questions' concerning faith and
moray; and that, in the determination of such
questions, the Rotuan Pontiff, as Vicar nide-
sus Christ, comtitutes a tribunal, from which
there is noappeal, and' to - whose award all the
children of the Church must yield obedience.

The Fruit* of Victory
The New York Mirror in u well timed
article has the following judicious remarks,
which we commend to the attention of the
country : Amerivans, after various
disniters, incident to a new, imperfectly
organized party, are closing up their ranks,
and planting char victorious banuera
cry section of the Union. Considering
their age in the political drama, their tri
umph has been ample. Over-success is
over:e kiting and destructive. Hard fought
battles and occasional defeat discipline
new forces, and train raw recruits into ve
terans. It will be bolter for them, in the
great coming contest that they have, in
these preliminary skirmishes, fourill some
obstacles in the way. It has taught them
the need of unity and harmony in their
councils, and of vigilance and endurance at.
every outpost, and in al:. their camps.
I The field now lies broad and clear be
' foro the Americans. They aro in power
in New York, Ohio, California, Louisiana,
Maryland, Kentucky,DelaWare, Massachu
setts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and
Rhode Islund—and have proved their abil
ity to carry Pennsylvania on a square A
merican issue. In a cational contest,
with a fair platform and strong leaders,
they can carry Indiana, Illinois, Tennessee
Alabama, and V irginta—and we doubt
not jilorida, Mississippi, Arkansas. and
North Carolina. At any rate, no other
party can boast so fair a prospect of nation
al success in, 1856. -
The victories just won will add'vastly to
the chances and influence of the American
party. Their best fruit will be to assure
thous ands in every. State, who have all a
long sympathised with the American move
want, but who, timid andilvering, have
consulted their caution, and waited to see
whether American triumph was certain.—
These thousands, wilt now rush into, the
Ameriean ranks, and many "leading" men
of old parties,Who have: heretofore fought
the Atnerican battle under cover, will conic
rout anti, fight . openly, and will. bring. the
dependants on their examplo with them:--
The moral influence of the American Vic
tory in the great State 'of Nei Yolk, with
its one.:filth of the white populaiihn of the
Union, can hardly be over It 1
will ihvigoraie' Atnericanisin throughout
the Utjion, ' ,
If the battle, were to bo fought over to
'morrow, the victory of Taesday would add
. 25,0Q0 to the American Minim. The
scattered foraes, the eamp-followers, the
doubters, and witverers, all tend to the vie
.torious polities, as in . War. 'A
great thing fur the American party are
these iriumphs an -ins New Yorki'lllassaehn
setts, California and ~Maryland—as great
in their influence' on the masses of thipeo
ple, as in their direct 'results: , TheSe are
a song and prophesy of national triumph."

To eta Punta- :—There never was a moro
favorable time for the citizens of Adams coun
ty to subscribe to aid it building a rniln ad
than now. With an average crop of wheat in
their garners, a very abunitant crop of oats and
an unprecedenied crop of corn, besides an
excess of vegetables and fruits of all kind...,
they are not only entirely independent, but
have a large surplus. Farmers should more
than ever see the advantages and the neces,i
ty of a railroad to carry these products to mar
ket. The construction of a Railroad to this
county would bring with it wealth and happi
ness. It would enliven the county scat ; it
would add prosperity to prosperity in the cow -
try ; it would enhance the value of every acre
of land in a large portion of the county :
would carry the city markets into our midst ;
and it would afford facilities to the farmer to
take advantage of the sudden fluctuations • f
the grain markets. It would save time aid
money to the travelling portion of tbe commu
nity and afford them comforts of which the
present mode of conveyance is totally devoid.
It would develop the mineral resources of our
hills and carry to the cities our very superior
quality of building stone. It would bring back
into our country in return substances which
would fertilize our soils. It would enrich the
country in every respect, and infuse new life
and vigor into the people. In other counties
and States Railroads arc built with apparent
ease. And if the citizens of Adams county
only say they must have a Railroad it will bo
built. Rat it requires a firm and indomitable
spirit of energy on the part of every one inter
ested in the project, (and every one is interest
ed) to carry it through—such a spirit as has
been truly called "the conqueror of impossibil
ities." If the work is met with a vigorous, no.
hie courage, such as it deserves, regardless of
side issues, sectional prejudices and feelings,
and local interests, which always operate seri
ously against a project like this ; and with
minds unbiassed try- the whims of ever-busy and
everdictating fault-finders, who frequently
speak merely from the impulse of the moment
without careful thrgild—success will crown
our efforts. Conflicting opinions should be
listend to with all dueregard, but having stud
ied those opinions and yielded to them withoi t
any determinate end for three or four years,
it is now time to act on what is thought best
for the general intense; of the people. And if
the mass of the people are their interests as
we see them, and act accordingly, there will be
no unnecessary delaj in putting theirciad un
der contract and pushing it ere to a speedvcom
pletion. 14 every man y a laudable de
gree of liberality by sug in proportion
to his means and the advantages the road
would be to him, and also use his influenee to
induCe his neighbors to subaerile, and there
can be no dOubt of our seams. The spirit
nestle minerals!. A few men cannot birlid
the road, and it would be an unreasonable tax- -
ing of even liberal generosity, to expect a few
to detee their time. and thei r ener g rea , an d
their' money to a project whisk is to be of so
generaliwm. .Wry benefit.
The obees urged by some die
heartened philanthropists that theykne labor
ed for, and talked about,tbe project so much
that it is useless to try again. Make one more
effort. Endeavor to imbibe the spirit that it
smudge on now, when it is so near a consum
mation. Arouse from that inglorious sloth,
which has stolen in upon you, to energetic en
deavors to accomplish the prqect It is an
enterrise worthy of another attempt, and as
there is now an organized combination of ef
fort it will go on. Every public movement
meets with obstacles apparently insurmounta
ble, but these should nerve the arm to deeds
of nobler daring. Let every one then use his
influence and devote his test energies for a .
a few weeks to the work, and success must
crown our combined effort& The project
is worthy, of a manly effort, and such should be

BURNING A WIFE.-A wealthy Rus
sian, named Pfeil, residing in Milwaukie,
Wisconsin, made an attempt, on the 18th
ult., to burn the body of his deceased wife,
but was prevented by the Sheriff and his
assistants. lie had erected a funeral
pile of sixteen cords of wood, and had
shavings and turpentine in readiness, when
the offieers put a stop to the proceedings,
and bed the corpse buried in the usual
way. Heil alleged that his wife was born
a Brahman, and that it was her desire as
well as his own that her remains should be
burned. The question, "Has a man the
right to burn`the body of Ins dead wife 1'
sprang up from this affair, and is now be
ing (lionised in the papers. It is alleg
ed that burning dead bodies is quite com
mon in the low marshes ut South Caro
lina, Louisiana. and other States, and that
its practice erery where would go far to
prevent epedemils. For all that, we think
the sheriff was right in the course of ac
tion he adopted.

which quickly produced a very pleasing
change, in five weeks, the bloom of health was
again upon her cheeks, being perfectly cured,
to the agreeable surlvise of her friends.—
These Pills are'also infallible in all diseases

work; and are confident that it will not only
sustain, but increase the reputation of its dis
tinguished authoress. -We have reasons for
