Philadelphia Temperance Nc-misa'iong
The prohibitory liquor law meu of Philadel
phia met iu convention on Monday of last
week, and named a number of candidates for
the Legislature. We select the following from
their resolutions, to show what stuff the con
vention was made of:
Resolved. That the enactment of a law pro
hibiting the sale of intoxicating liquors as a
beverage in the State of Pennsylvania is esseh-
I ml to the moral and political welfare of the
Resolved, That it is the duty of every good
citizen to so far disregard the ties of political
parties as to cast his vote and use his influence
so as to secure the election of men known to
he favorable to prohibition.
Resolved, That no person shall receive the
i final nomination of this Convention, who will
not give a pledge in writing to advocate aud
vote for a prohibitory law in case of his elec
tion to the Legislature.
The convention will re-assemble on the 18th
inst., to make final nominations.
A Word with You, Governor.
Will your supreme Excellency be kind
enough to explain your connection with the
Native American Party and movement in the
campaign of leol ? Did your Excellency con
tribute towards a Native newspaper published
in liarrisburg at that period? and did you not
falsify your promises to the poor editor who
was green enough to put faith in your word?
1 our object was to raise a schism between
the Democratic and YV lug elements which
formed the Native American Party and the
game succeeded; didn't it, Governor? But
like a scurvy politician, you forgot your pled
ges, and thev stand to tin's dav on record as
an evidence of your ingratitude ! Blanche's
bund ay Brest.
We have waited for ten dts, to hear from
soma one of the Governor's organs relative to
the above charge, but thev are now trying to
deceive Protestant, foreigners, as the did the
Native American party in 1851, and it does
not suit their purposes to refer to history,
particular!' if it refers to transactions more
than a year old. Mr. Blanche, at the time of
the last Gubernatural esmpaign, edited a Na
tive American, paper in this place, and for
some reason, he and his friends a short time
before the election, dropped Governor John
son and spoildour calculation several hundred
votes. Had the contribution in question any
thing to do with this charge? Come, Mr.
Blanche, give us a history of the entire trans
action. Telegraph.
A Sad Story.
The following extraordinary case occurred
in Mississippi under the slave law of that
State :
A planter was afflicted with a loathsome dis
ease! So offensive were the ulcers that he was
deserted by his white friends; and while thus
afflicted and forsaken, a girl whom he owned
as a slave, kindly and patiently waited upon
him, dressed his ulcers, cleansed his person,
and watched over him until he even actually
recovered. With gratitude and affection to his
benefactor, h3 took her to Cincinnati, Ohio,
executed to her a deed of manumission, had
it recorded, returned to Mississippi, and there
married her m legal form. They lived to
gether affect ionat elj' for many years, reared a
family of children, and, as he lav upon his
death-bed, by will he divided his property
between his wife and children. His brothers
hearing of his death, came forward and de-
mended the property. The widow and chil
dren were indignant at the demand. They too
were seized, and the validilj' of that marriage
was tried before Judge Sharkley, of that State,
who decided that the whole'iuatter was a fraud
upon the law of slavery that the property
belonged to the collateral heirs. His widow
was sold by the surviving brothers, the chil
dren were bid off at public auction, and both
mother and children now toil in chains or
sleep in servile graves.
BniTALitv Personified. The Baltimore
Pariot of July "list, says : Wc learn from
Capt. Hewell, of the Middle Watch Station,
that a man came to the loek-uii last, evening
and claimed shelter for the night under cir
cumstances of a peculiar nature. His head
was completely shaved, not a vestige of hair
leh)g upon the cranium in fact, nothing vis
ible but the bare scalp. His back was one
mass of coagulated blood, caused, he said, bv
fifty stripes being inflicted upon him at Fort
jlcllenry. In answer to questions from the
captain, he stated that he had been a soldier
in the U. S. Army, stationed at FortMcIIenry,
and that he had deserted, and on being ar
rested was sentenced to have his head shaved,
to receive fifty lashes upon the bare back, and
be drummed out of the service, which had ac
cordingly be.cn done. Since writing the above
we have learned that the name of the mutilated
man is Patrick Kelly. We also understand
that the two buglemen who were detailed to
lash him are now under arrest because they
did not lay on the lash with more severitv. It
is said they will also be punished.
Tite Importance or Voting. In announc
ing the result of the late election in North Car
olina, the Faycttevllle Observer states that the
contest for the Legislature was exceedingly
close. In Bladen county, Mr. McDugald was
beaten by 22 votes: in Sampson, 3fr. Slocum
by 7; in Forsythe, the Whig candidates bv less
than 20; in Washington and martin, the Whig
Senator by 23; in Craven, by o; in Brunswick,
by 2o; in Chowan, by 2; in Pitt, one of the
Democrats is elected by three votes, another
by one, and a Whig hy four; and in many oth
er counties the Whigs have lost by similar
small majorities.
"Red Spirits axd White." All parties are
invited to come into the democratic fold, and
aid in the election of Bigler, Black & Co.,
next uctouer. JKcv. John Chambers will mus
ter the temperance men, Gov. Bisler will take
care of both sides of the Nebraska bill. Mott
will muster the Know-Nothings, Charley
Urowii will take care of the "Furriners." and
Judge Black can summon the Spirit-Rappers,
it tneir aid should le required. If everybody
votes for Bigler, he will be elected bevond
doubt. Chester Republican.

In this place, on Monday, 29th inst., the Rev.
Adam Hacuiiemskiirv, aged about :0 yean?.
Mr. Hacghenbekry was the senior clergyman on
the Clearfield circuit, and in his death, the com
munity have sustained one of those serious bereave
ments, the design of which only the iuscrutiblo
wisdom of Providence can understand. He was
originally from Huntingdon county, and during
bis residence among our people, he won tho re
spect and love, not only of his own congregation,
but of all classes of the community. His 'walk
and conversation' were characterised by all the
virtues that adorn tho christian, and All the en
dearments that cluster around the name of a man
uid a gentleman. It miht truly be said of him
None knew him but to love him
None named him but to prai.se."
He was a kind and attentive Paitor, a good
neighbor, a high minded and worthy citizen. Be
fulfilled his destiDy on earth, and having been in
strumental in gaining many souls for his Redeem
er's Kingdom, he haa taken his flight to that bet
ter Land. There, after they, like him, 'have
fought thegood fight,' and conquered the last great
enemy, his family, brethren and friends will again
meet him, with many glittering jewels iu the
crown of his rejoicing.

AGE. We congratulate our subscribers and
the reading public generally, on the cheapness
with which they can now receive our reprints bv
mail. The postage hitherto though gradually
reduced since 184 4 has always operated as a dis
couragement to their circulation in places inac
cessible by expresses or other modes of regular
private conveyance. Hence, as yet they have ob
tained but a comparative meagre mail circulation.
We hope now that the postage is merely aomitud,
a new impetus will be given to these valuable

W. O. Hickok : Sir : I have one of vour Im
proved Cider Mills : I used the Mill last October.
and on trial I ground fifty bushels of apples per
hour. I keep the ground apples twelve hours, and
j. can press out two barrels ol cider per hour with
two men. I can recommend vour Improved Cider
Mill to all fruit growers, for speed and a saviiig"6f
labor. -1 can make thirty-five gallons of cider
from nine and a half bushels of common auiles.
The cider can be pressed from the pomace without
using water now. Cider will keep one year when
water is not used at the press.
Farmers examine this newly Improved Mill be
fore you buy any other !

supply the demand, and persons wanting them had
better send in their orders soon.
