than the destruction of battalions, in which
the Turks suffer nearly as much as the Rus

We present oar readers to-day with a bean
tiful and accurate map, giving the entire area
of the United States in its relations to slavery
at one glance. The part left in white repre
sents the Free Stated, that in deep black the
Slave States, and that part which the authors
and supporters of the N ebraska bill mean to
make slave territory, if they can, is shaded as
doubtful. . -
The boundaries of Nebraska and Kansas
tire — given, not with absolute exactness, but
near enough to show the :vast magnitude of
the territory endangehd by Douglas's bill. It
extends from Texas to Canada, and from lowa
to the Rocky Mountains, comprising an area
oC eliAir - 480,1:100 - square miles, more than toil'
times the extent of Pennsylvania, and sixty
that of Massachusetts.
By a glance at the map the reader will see
that by far the greater part of the settled
lands of the U. S. are now in the hands of
slaveholders. The free population of 4he
North is about fourteen millions; the free pop
ulation of the Slave States about six and a half
millions; while the number of slaveholdors is
only about four hundred thousand. Yet they
have already the giant's share of the land,
and .11r. Douglas end the Democratic party of

:above map to be deep black, and then consider
the relative positions, of the Free and the
Sieve States. Can auy free white man, north
or south, not a slaveholder, hesitate for a mo
ment as to his duty in the present crisis?
There 'is one thing further to be considered
'by the farmers and working men of Pennsyl
vania. Shedd these territories become Slave

Let them send honorable and high-minded men
to the Legislature, instead of the party tools

SESSIONS of the Legislature!
DO -Notwithstanding a bill has passed both
branches of the Legislature for tho Sale of.the
Main Line, the Loco offlce-holding plunderers
are'determined to defeat the object of the law,
The Demooratio Union, a Loco 'paper, hut
which seems honestly to favor the sale, has a
long article exposing the action of the Canal
.Commissioners. W"roulte the fellowing.ex
tracts from it. Thd:Julon says ;
Truly, truly, whim the gods will destroy
they first make mad. We assert, unhesita:
tingly, as the most charitable conclusion we
can come to, that the Canal Commissioners
are demented and unfit to exercise that author
ity which the law lins•placed in their hands.
We say this t' more in sorrow than in anger,"
because the imperious sense of duty to the
people of this commonwealth will not permit
us to remain silent.
In the 'net for the sale of the main, lino' of
the public works, passed with great unanimity,
(or rather by strong mejorities,) in both hous
es of the legislature, it is stipulated that the
company who shall purchase, In their tariff of
prices "shall not exceed the--reites of toll now
charged upon boots cars tonnage and passenger.,
by the commonwealth , " The meaning of the
legislature is obvious. It cannot be mistaken,.
The purchaser was allowed by the not to
1: charge the same rate of tolls Charged by the
commonwealth nt the tinie the bill received
the legislative sanction. This -was the inten
tion of the legislature. There lives not a man
in or out of the legislative body, who dare
deny it. And - yet, look at the bold, rough
hewn-piece of rascality by which that Board,
in the face of day, in defiance of the Legisla
ture and the people, seek to defeat the con
summation of an not which was passed by the
representatives of the people after long and
mature deliberation! Look at it, members of
the Legislaturui look at it, citizens of Penn
sylvania ; and say what should be the punish
ment for such n flagrant violation of duty and
the public will ! The fast will scarcely be
credited, and yet it is "true as holy writ,"
that the Board of Canal Commissioners, on
Saturday, reduced thei tolls' on the 'Wadi line—
for no other reason that can be conceived of
than to defeat dishonestly and by - an abuse of
power, the sale of the public worke."
The people can thus see how their interests
nre . trified with by the plunderers in power.
The annual\ appropriation bill, covering the
mammoth summt SIX MILLIONS OF DOL
LALS passed thti Legislature on Nonday,
The Ledger remarks upon this monster bill—
"We shall went to examine this bill. Six
millions of dollars Is u very large sum, end.
the people ought to be informed what aro the
_purposes to which it Is to he applied. Among
proviaione we understand - is authority to
make temporary Ipa,ns. The Whole revenues
of the Commonwealth last year, including
$4,205,233 of loans, and $164,662 of public
property sold Were only $9,486,770. We in
fer from thesefigures that the temporary loans
this year will be larger than they were last
year; other .sources of revenue being equal."

allowances . for legal figures of armed* in de.
fonoo of a client, but We moat any Kentucky
practice is too sharp for us. The Pkzabeth.
town eorrespondentof the Louisville Courier
says that Ea-Gov. Helm, in his address to the

as living monuments of extraordinary fecundi

Just ne we were going to press we learned
that Mr. AIATI GIyLEII, of Southampton town
ship, in this county, while watering hie horse
near the house on the 27th inst., was thrown
from the saddle and, his foot having stuck fast
the stirrup, dragged some eix. hundred
yards, injuring him so seriously that his life
is despaired of. The horse was frightened by
a euddch flash of lightning, followed by a loud

Our very efficient Marshal of Police has
adopted the uniform of the Philadelphia po-

this moment on their way from most countries
in Europe. The picture gallery Is to have
valuable additions—there is to be a horticul

regular f attendance—on the whole, there is
every reason to expect that whatever may be
said of j ibe past, the future of the exhibition
will be such as to afford gratification and

The - editor of the Cincinnati Gazette makes
the follAing,notice of the testimony in the
Ward trial: •
"We have read it with attention, and the
weight of testimony is clearly, in our 4udgment,
against the prisoner. We do not know what
the verdict may be, but a more deliberate case
of murder was never made out than is made
out by the published evidence. We have no
.acquaintance with the Ward's, and bad none
with Mr. Butler. We therefore have no bias
one way•or the other. More than* half a doz
en witnesses, young men, students of Mr.
Butler, swear -unequivocally" that the Wards
came to the school, and after a few angry
words Matt. Ward, who called Butler a d—d
liar, drew a pistol and shot him. The wound
.ivas in the breast, and of which wound Mr.
Butler, alter being carried horne,,died. The
attempt to prove that Mi. Butler struck Ward
or struck at him, after Ward called him a d—d
liar, is not mode out "satisfactorily: The
weight of testiniony is that he did not strike
or attempt to strike Ward.'
