fact of my having been tw ice, since 1830. associated with

So convenient, so velment. and yet su sale, did 1 esteem

That so great a number ofdiseases, and sometimes op.
parently opposite ones, in which 1 have used these pills,
should be clued more readily by them than by any other

why it is so is as clear to my mind as that a great many

To the &nate dad House of Rep . resentalives ist
the Connhodwealth of Pennsylvania;
''Gs.sertiesigra--1 herewith return toilie 'Rouse of
'Representatives, in which it originated, the bill
entitled 'An act to reduce the expenses, ithdpree
`tills for the election of the Board of, Cann/ Com-
Vithisirriters,' without the ekecutiVe 'sanction; and,in
confortnity to the resfeiretnent'Cf l ehe eonatiluiien,
I pierced to assign, with brevity, the reasons
which have induced me to adapt this course,
The object of this bill 1a to 'remove the present
Board of Carat Cornin'isSioners, and to fill their
places by a temporary board, to be elected by the
Legislatnre, to serve until their places are enpe
plied tinder 'the provisions of the first section '6144
ant; at 'the nekt general electidn. Ifihere wera nd
constitutional barrierk to any attiorilin the - subject
whatLver 'by the pretent Legislature, and this b ill,
only provided for the election of a Board 'V' Cline
Commissioners by the people; it would Ilford WI
great pleasure te gide It thy ItpProVittl; It

jections, whin)] I shall givei In'eorichisiat, Thsi
'members of the present 'ft halm discharged
their duty - With indhistry, fidelity and ability, and
t haVe not yet di covered the least reason to be.
Iteve'that'their places Would be better it.SPialied bar

charge of mat-conduct or incompetency tins beet! established against them, and as far as I am in:
forined, and`believe, they have proven themselves
'to have Leen governed by a proper ser.seef public
duty'. Tfiny have dispensed with anntnessary or.
ficera,—they have laid the grobn&vvork of a sp•
tern of economy in the public dialou'irsemtnts;
which, if carried our, , nust. render 'der improve.
meets an impetus rather than a drawback to the
industry of the people; and they have brdaglit in
to the Ttettstfry a larg er amount elem . & than hail
I ever yet been derived from those improvainents.
Under these'circomstanccs the removal of Mei
Board,in the Very summary manner indicated by
the second st etiOn - of the bill, would appear to the
world as a rebuke ler the faithful perforMahee of
a high public duty. It would, in effect, be pro=
claiming to uur 'common constituents, that we are
opposed to 'reform, economy, a'nd 'retrenchment:
and that'Officers Who Tia`crdevoted Their time and
attention to the bekt: means of leplenialieng an ex:
boosted Treasury, trom a source hitherto consid.
eyed unproductive, were no longer (kilned worthy
of confident° or slipport. Until lam 'convinced
that such is the opinion of the people 0t Pennsyl;
vanie, I tannorconsent to ratify a'n act that
could, in these limes of general disiress an I em.
barraserismt„ be censiruLd into a reihalte of that
'cha'racter. In every ection of the'State our con:
istitheets are looking to us to devise some meaol
of maintaining rho public faith, and at the same
tittle, relieving them Iron, the burdens of tete:
. tivOuld seem 'to the, to be treating their ex.
pectaiions 'With rnockoT, to pfce a stigma-I:pod

pribtin tredsury, by unnecessarily removing theta
at the very moment when their experience and
services were of great advantage to the general
interests of the Commonwealth. When Ina pee l

works rendered a source of profitable revenue, and
co alter the fernitinental law as to 'embrace thd
proposed cliange - -21 shall then acquiesce in their

improvertienth babe been judiciously itiatintleed by
the present bort"rd=ttat 'trey haVe inirodneeil
laudable system of economy and retrenchment—:
that they have corrected many abuscie that icn,
