D:rThe communication signed "The Pee
plO," is declined because it strikes us as ill
timed. The writer inveighs furiously against
taxes, without seeming to recollect that taxes
must be paid or the State Debt repudiated, and
without seeming to be aware that a Sinking
Fund is now in operation, through which the
reduction of the State Debt has vigorously.com
menced. No feral' of an increase of the State
Debt need bo apprehended while Gov. Johnston
occupies the Executive chair. We hear Amid
complaints 'of the assessments, and to these
probably the strictures of our correspondent
ought to be directed.
In the House, on Monday, a resolution by
Mr. Root, of Ohio, instructing the Commit
tee on Territories to report a bill pr.oyiding
a territorial. government for New Mexico,
with the Wilmot Proyiso annexed, was laid
on the tablePby a vote of 105 to '7O. Mr.
Cobb, of Alabama, submitted a plan provi
ding for the appointment of twelve Seminole
and twenty Representatives, hall from the
North and hall from the South, who shall de.
vise a plan to sette existing difficulties. In
the Senate, Mr. Ruston was prevented from
making his Slavery speech by a long discus
sion on another subject.
Mr. Clay's Compromise
The resolutions recently introduced into the
Senate, by Mr. Clay, and intended to compro
mise the whole slavery question, will be aund
in full on our fourth page. They deserve ilia
most serious attention of every lover of his
country. Even those who cannot acquiesde
with Mr. Clay, will find in hie course a lofti
ness and purity of purpose, a sacredness of de
votion to tho Union, which must challenge
their deepest respect. The resolutions are
characteristic of Mr. Clay, net only in their
"compromising" purpose, but in their spirit of
The .countrk has now two -distinct' plans be
fore it for deciding the kraut question. And
as far as we have heard opinion expressed, we
believe the course proposed in the Message of
President Taylor is looked upon with more fa
vor than that of Mr. Clay. California has set.
tied the question herself, and in favor of Free
dom. We .have ho assurance in President Tay
lor's message that Now Mexico will shortly per
sue the same course, and as slavery is now ef
fectually exelqded from liar territory, that her
admission into the Union will be asked for as a
free State. Ho thereforegrecommends that ap
exciting struggle shall not be hastened by at
tempting to establish a territorial government.
This is non-action, by which the opponents of
slavery extension lose nothing, and the South
saves her "point of hohor." Mr. Clay, on the
other hand, proposes that a territorial govern
ment ehait be established for New Mexico, and
that thorn may be no strife ho prop° JCS that the
North reiinquiah the Wilmot Proviso. This the
opponents of slavery extension cannot do. But
they can consistently adopt .Gen. Taylor's non
action ground, for that is but turning the mat
ter over, to the people of New Mexico, who
have already avowed their opposition to slave
ry. If, therefore, peace and harmony are to be
maintained between the north and south, (as
we most sincerely hops they iney,) Gen. Tay
lor's Jecommendation presents the true ground
for ebttling the vexed question.
Mr. Clay's resolutions .0 1 'iirfertmce to
District of ,Columbia provide for all that we
now believe ought to be asked for. Let us bettv , .
something to time and Maryland.
Terrible Explosion in N. York.
A heart-tending calamity, as we learn iron)
. papeis, occurred in New York
on Monday morning, by the bursting of a
steam boiler on the lower floor of the large
Press-making and Machina eelablishment of
A. 13. Taylor & Co. So tremendous was the
explosion that the entire mass of
AIL Glories high, was uph*ed and fell with
an nwful mush almost 4Mirely on its own
tohnfiation, The next minute the whole
tnlse l wart on fire. The shock. was like an
earthquake and was felt at a great distance
As near as can , be ascertained about one
hundred persons were in the- building, but a.
few of whom escaped. Probably' eighty
poisons werekilled : : About forty 'killed and
' wounded, were• rescued horn the ruins.
Mr. Taylor's loss in machinery, patterns,
&0.,: is estimated at $50,000, on which lie
has an -inapt:spill) 'for $17,000. Mr. Burr's loss
is esumnied at $15,000 Ills believed that
'there are •still,set•enly persons in the ruins.

ranters became the most acceptable cham
pions of locolocoism on the stump. And
even in Pennsylvania where Looofocoism is
most stupidly slow in perceiving or reoogniz
•ing the advance of truth, even here it gladly
east itself under the wing of Free Soil.—
David Wilmot was the presiding spirit of
.a 4th of March Convention, in 1848, and a
strong Free Soil resolution was boldly put on
the record by the Locofoco Stale Convention
last summer at Pittsburg. No locofoco paper
dissented to this resolution but the'iPennsyl
vanian, while the Carlisle Volunteer we are
certain applauded it warmly.
We are reminded of all these
he remarks of the last Volunteer, based on
he rejection of the subjoined resolution,
which was lately introduced IMO our Slate
Resolved by the Senate and Rouse of Reprc
sentatzve,s of the Commonwealth of Pcnnsylva
via, in General Assembly met, That we deem
it our duty to make known in this solemn
manner, our determinatien to oppose by all
constitutional means the extension of slavery
over territory now free, and our Senators in
Congress are hereby instructed, and,our Rep
resentatives are requested to resist all at
tempts to extend slavety over any part of
such territory, however small, and to oppose
the admission of any new States into Ahe U
nion unless slavery or involuntary servitude
shall.,be forever excluded therefrom.
The vote of 40 ayes tp 46 nays, shows us
that almost the entire 'ecotone party of the
House Voted against the consideration of the
resolution, and among those who thus voted
the Volunteer is '"glad to see the names of
our members, Thomas C. Seemlier and Hen
ry Church." Whereupon the Volunteer
proceeds to applaud them warmly, and to
visit with the severest denunciations "the
spirit of fanaticism" which is exhibited in .
the terms of the resolution. And yet, in the
same article, (dew lines further on, the Vol. li
maw- "would deprecate the extension of
slaxery.an much as anyone! !" And-we
suppose the Volunteer expects to prevent
the extension of slavery by "deprecating" it!,
While Texas is trying to clutch New Mexico

has nobly stepped forth into sovreignty un- '

North,which under the domination of locolo
coism has too often and too long cringed in
servility to the Slaveocracy, must forsooth
still quietly and calmly sit down and only
"deprecate" the , extension of sSlavery! But
we hope there is a nobler spirit abroad
throughout the country, thro'out Pennsylvs-
nia, and not unfelt in Cumberland county,
which means to do more than "deprecate"
the extension of Slavery—,which means to
make he voice heard in unfaltering tones at
Washington, and which means to proclaim
the abiding determination of unquailing

We call the attention of the people ol
Cumberland county to the resolution which
the Volunteer brands as fanatical, but which
in the most reasonable terms embpdies the

relation to the extension of Slavery. Why
should not such a iebolution pass? Why
should Thomas S. 'Scanner and Hepry
Church vote against it ? Our Legislature has
instructed Congress relative to Austria and
to Flogging in the Navy, and Henry Church
himself has offered instructions for a change
in the Tariff. Why not, then, the above re.

requested to have copies of this resolution
forwarded to each Senator and "Ripresenta

Mr. Church hers recognizes distinctly the
.Whrg .doctrine "Of Protection, and so far hie
resolution is well enough, but it does not go
far enough. If the coal and iron interests of
Pennsylvania need protection, as • they
tainly do, why shall not the same fostering
care be extended to the mdfistrial interests
of other States?. Certainly it will 'not be
claimed that Congress is to legislate for the
, good of PennsylVania alone!
Our neighbors of the Volunteer and Demo
crat do not seem- to regard Mr. Church's res
olution in the same light. The Volunteer
lee's casting vote that destroyed the Tariff of
1842, and which took so fine a stand (tor at
least three weeks!) for Pennsylvania into.

strangely enough, follows in 'the wake of

defence of Mr.Chpich'sresolution, and in so

it says the system of.dinies on imposts is
mtonded to "procure for the people almost

added that we thus derive the means of pro•
tecting our own manufactureis and laborers
from an unequal,competition with foreign
countries which employ pauper labor—we
have the whole protective aloctrine briefly
stated. The 'Democrat may well say there
fore that there is nothing, t in Mr. Church's
resolution "repugnant to the principles of the
democracy." The shame for this democracy
is that it ever allowed itself to be arrayed in
opposition to American Labor and its own
interests, at the bidding of James K. Polk
and Sir. Robert Walker.
But we have an abiding confidence that the
American people will yet set themselves
right on this subject of .Protection to Amen

while our people are opening this vastterri

The Harrisburg, Intelligencer says the &-
cent appointments of the Canal Commission
ers have caused great dissatisfaction. Many
curses are 'hhoweted on the devoted heads
of the Canal Board, which, however, will
have no effect upon the men who for perso
nal aggrandizement are capable of making
promises only to break them. Such is the
nature of Locofocoism—no member of the
party scarcely, who will take an Office at all,
will give a hearty support to the nominee,
unless in the distance he sees the ; prospect
of an office.
Such men never act hem anything but' the
basest motives, and it it not surprising that ,
they are often disappointed, and that . when
disappointed, they give vent to their rage in
language not the Moot refined.

A Hard Hit
The Washington correspondent of II:e
Boston Atlas, in noticing the terrific fire-orul:
tow Dis-uniort speech of Mr. Clingnvan,
says, the fiery orator remarked before he

Cincinnati Iron Trade.
We are astonished by a statement, which
appears in the Cincinnati papers, of the ra
pidity with' which the iron interests of that
city have grown. 'Here is an agate
statement oh only three branches of the holt
business : _ _ _
Rolling Mills, Foundries, Machine Shops
and Stove Factories, No
Hands employed, "
Products of manufactures,
Pig iron consumed, tons,
Blooms, do, do,'
Scrap Iron de, do,
Coal consumed, bush.,
Coke do do,
If we suppose five persons to be connect
ed with each of the three thousand hands
employed, we shall have a population of fif
teen thousand persons direCtly connected
with these departments of trade. Compa
ring this result with the results of previous
years front 1826, it appears that in the first
fifteen years the iron manufacture increased
in the ratio of 'lour hundred per cent, and in
the second pried of eight ye,ars at the ratio
of four hundred and fifty. This shows an
increase Which •is greater than that of the
city iti other respects.

The last • Democrat has a wont)l ttie re- ..
cen f t trial In the Quarter Sessions. of this
'county, of Martin C. Auld, of Dickinson t„ :
charged with Kidnapping a colereil boy ri ';.7'
riled Burns. The mother of ' Burns lie
been a slave, belonging to Mr. Ridgley, of
Md., and the abducted boy was.born a few
miir.ths after she arrived in Pennsylvania.—
This made the difficult point in the case.—
The court charged the jury strongly against .
the defendant on the facts, but intimated tha
their mind was' not fully made up on the
law, although inclined to believe theta legal
offence had been committed. The next mor
ning the jury returned the following Verdict :
"Thu jui:y find that Betsy Burns, a colored
woman, was the slave of Mr. Rtdgley, a cit-,
izen of Maryland, from whom she escaped
about nineteen years ago, and came into the
State of Pennsylvania. At the time of her
escape she was pregnant, and when in
Pennsylvania was delivered of a male child,
about six months thereafter. This child was
called Alexander Burns, and is the same in
dividual named in the bill of indionnent
as having been forcibly lnken away nt the
summer of 1848, by the defendant and oth
ers., Who titer the said 'Alexander Burns'
was a 'free negro or nut - alto,' as COllletnpla

he were then a 'free negro hr mulatto' at the
time he was thus taken away, then we find
The defendant guilty in manner Mid form as
htes:apds indicted; otherwise we find the ,
defendant not guilty."
The case will therefore have to be argued
over on the legal point before the court.
A New Conspiracy.
The Washington correspondent of the N.
American, who was confident alter counting
noses, that the Wilmot Proviso although it
might pass the House could not pass the Se•
nate : now says that his confidence has beti'r:
somewhat impaired by recent disclosures,
and by the detection of a plot to secure the
adoption of the Proviso, for the purpose of
embarassing Gbn. Taylor. In a'conversaliain
with a distinguished Southern Senator on
-thia-subject, he remarked in answer to the
reasons which I advanced wily the Proviso
would be detested in the Senate. that "the
day upon which the bill was milled up might
prove one of ' disastrous SieltileFB to the
