The decision in the House of Representatives,
within the last two days, upon questions connected
with the Tariff, may, we suppose, be considered as
test questions. 'So considered, they confirm the
impreeoion upon our mind, heretofore conveyed to
our readers, that'll° existing Tariff will not be
touched at the present session of Cong,ress.
We now hazard, with equal confidence, the pre

d new Southern State Proposed.
The anxiety of the South to preserve its statisti-
eel and proportionate strength in the U. S. Senate,
has led to another project for this purpose, in addi
tion to the proposition for the Annexation of Texas.
A bill has been introduced into the Legislature of
Tennessee, now in Session, for the establishment of
a new State out of the territory of East Tennessee.
The counties proposed to be ceded, in order to form
the new State, to be named " Frankland," are
twenty-six in number. It is proposed also in the
bill that the new State may be added such portions
of the States, of North Carolina, Virginia and
Georgia, as may be ceded for that purpose.

Commissioners. In common with almost every
citizen of Harrisburg, we are pleased that Mr. Wil
son has been " provided for." He will make a
good officer in any station.
We cannot help remarking, however, that if the
duties of the station could be postponed for six
months without inconvenience, as we understand
they were, this Deputy ship is superfluous, and may
as well be abolished—and the salary saved to the
tax payers of the Commonwealth. Will some of

This was an indictment for Riot and Disturbance

same jury. This and the two next preceding grew
out of one affray, which took place at a Canal
Lock, in Woodbcrry township, as above stated. The
same counsel conducted all three of the trials.
The first three of the above indictments were
found by the Grand Jury at November Sessions
last, and continued to January Sessions.
There were also two indictments for Assault and
Battery, to which the defendants respectively plead
guilty, and submitted to the Court.
The case against the County Commissioners was
compromised; and that against the Supervisors of

Lecture No. 3.
On Saturday evening of last week the third Lec
ture in the course before the Washingtonian Socie
ty was delivered by A. K. Convoy, Esq., upon the
"Duties and Responsibilities of Parents and
Guardians ,"and it was with renewed interests, in
this plan of Lecturing, that I listened to this Lec
ture. The subject, was one which interest every
member in our community, and as I had before an
ticipated, was ably and eloquently handled. The
Lecturer, with glowing fervor, painted the many
sorrows which must wring the hearts of parents, if
they neglect their duties and let their offspring, rise
up, and go into the world, wild and untutored, to
be driven about by the winds and waves of pas
sion ; and I only regret that so few of the Parents
of our town were present to listen and learn.
And I would further remark upon this subject
generally, that it should be a source of gratification,
that this plan of delivering Lectures has been adop
ted. At first the success of the system was doubt
ed ; yet now it would seem, that it is in the hands
of him "who ruleth all things well ;" and that he
is determied to strengthen its foundation, and give
new beauty, as well as permanence to the edifice,
Three Lectures in the course have now been heard;
and all go to show that they are deserving of the
attention of our citizens—especially the moral por
tion of them. But may I not be permitted to ex
press my regret, that many, very many, of those
whose feelings, and interests should be awake to
what ever is calculated to bear its blessings to their
doors, stand, seemingly still, and listless, apparently
caring not, whether our banner of health and pewee
—or the pall of the drunkards death bed, shall be
first spread under their roof. Can nothing be done
to arouse them ? T. T.

Canal Commissioners' Report.
The Commissioners attribute the increase of tolls
and tonnage to the introduction of section boats,
and the purchase, by the Commonwealth, of trucks
for their conveyance over the two railroads. The
tables attached to the report, show that the system
of transportation by section boats was eminently
successful during the past yeur ; and that all that is
required to give it permanency, is the fostering care
of the Legislature.

THE TARIFF QUESTION AGAIN.
The Tariff Question was again agitated in the
House of Representatives, on Wednesday. Mr.
Rhett, of South Carolinia, and known to be friendly
to Mr. Calhoun, submitted the following resolution,
and called for the previous question, viz
Resolver, That the Committee of Ways and
Means be instructed to report a bill reducing all du
ties on imports over thirty per cent. ad valorem to
that amount; and providing for a final reduction
within two years to twenty per cent. ad valorem,
with such discrimination below this maximum, se
the purposes of revenue shall require.
The previous question was seconded, and the
question being taken on the resolution, it was neg
atived—ayes 57, noes 112.
Mr. 'Black of Georgia, soon after submitted the
following resolution, and asked for the previous
question thereon, viz :
Resolved, That the Committee of Ways and
Means be instructed to report a bill as soon as pew.,
ticable, revising the present tariff, and imposikg dc.l
ties on imports on the principle of revenue only. 4
The previous 'question was seconded, an e djc:,
lion being taken on the resolution, it was n vet/
—ayes 83, noes 84.
Mr. McDowell then submitted the following res
olution, and asked for the previous question there
Remised, That the Committee of Ways and
Means be instructed to report a bill so modifying
the present Tariff as to provide a revenue sufficient
for the wants of the Government economically ad
ministered, and with such discriminations as look to
that object, and no other.
Upon dividing to ascertain whether the previous
question was seconded, the House was found to be
without quorum, and a motion to adjourn was made
The Spectator analyzes the vote on Mr, Black's
resolution, and gives the result thus:
Democratic yeas, 92
Whig yeas, 1
Democratic nays, 31
Whig nays, 47
The whole of the Pennsylvania Delegation pre
sent (13 members) voted in the negative.
On Thursday a vote was held on Mr. McDow
The previous question was sustained, and the
vote on the resolution being taken, it was rejected
--ayes 84, noes 102. The Spectator analyzes
this vote thus:
Democratic yeas, 82
Whig yeas, 2
Democratic nays, 42
Whig nays, 60
All the Pennsylvania delegates voted in the neg
ative. The National intelligencer says :
" The decision in the House of Representatives,
within the last two days, upon the questions con
nected with the Tariff, may we suppose, be con
sidered as test questions. 8o considered, they con
firm the impression upon our mind heretofore
conveyed to our readers, that the existing Tariff will
not be touched at the present session of Congress.

Mr. Cooper introduced the following preamble
and resolutions which were read and made the or
der of this day week.
Whereas, The State of Pennsylvania owes a
debt of upwards of $40,000,000, which is griev
ously embarrassing and burdensome to the people.
And whereas, it is the duty of the Legislature, en
joined by the high consideration of vindicating the
suspected faith, and restoring the degraded credit of
the State, to provide means for the payment of the
debt. And whereas, the already embarrassed condi
tion of the people, and the common dictates of a
sound policy, require that die means of payment
should be drawn from sources the least burdensome.
And whereas, the sale of the Public Improvements
of the State, and the appropriation by Congress of
so much of the Public Lands of the United States,
or the proceeds thereof, to Pennsylvania, as rightful
ly belong to her, would extinguish the State debt,
and free the people from the oppresion of taxation.
Therefore, be it
Resolved, That honor, justice, humanity, as well
as what we owe to our character as a people, unite
in requiring that the faith of the State, pledged to
its creditors at home and abroad, should be guaran
teed by a speedy provision for the payment of the
debt and all arrears of interest.
Resolved, That the Public Improvements and
property of the commonwealth, embracing canals,
railroads, and stocks, should be sold ; and that the
committee of Ways and Means be and they are
hereby required to report a bill authorising the sale
of the same.
Resolved, That we recommend to our Senators
and Representatives in Congress to use their exer
tions to procure the passage of a law authorising
the loose of $200,000,000 of stock, to be distribu
ted amongst the several States, in proportion to their
Federal population, and to be payable by the United
States out of the proceeds of the sales of the Pub
lic Lands, which lands shall be pledged for the re
demption of the stock so issued.
Resolved, That should the proceeds of the sales
of the Public Lands be insufficient for the redemp
tion of the stock in a reasonable time, that ways
and means should then be raised by Congress, by
levying such additional duties on foreign goods as
may be necessary.
The following bills were introduced: by Mr.
Hermann, one to fix punishment for fraudulent
sues of Relief notes; by Mr. Dunlap, one to fix
the time when Acts of Assembly shall take effect.

was the conduct and the bearing that would dignify,
and adorn any calling or occupation. his repute:
tion as a gentleman, rested not upon a foundation,
as ephemeral and baseless as an empty name—no;
it rested upon those qualities of the heart, that all
good men admire and revere. When I say this, I
but speak the sentiments of all who knew him--I
speak but the language of sober truth.
In the death of this man, cut off - thus early and
suddenly, society has been deprived of a valuable
member—a wife of a kind and effectionate husband
—but how shall I speak of her lose—language le
too feeble to depict the grief of a heart thus torn,
and torn suddenly from nll it loved—its sorrote is
more bitter than the boy's grief for his first pley mate.
"Oh call my brother back to me—l oannot play
But vain and unavailing is grief: for the dead
will come back no more. They have run their
earthly course and are waiting to meet us on that
happy shore, where pain and sorrow shall wperats
no more. A. ....I.
