cO" As the time is near at hand when our Legis
lature will assemble, and strangers visit Harrisburg,
it is a matter of some importance to know where to
find good and convenient entertainment. Among
the many excellent hotels there, none is more highly
spoken of by those who speak knowingly, than that
of Capt. WELLS COVERLY, (formerly Mr. Nagle's.)
The house is large and commodious,and pleasantly
situated, in a central and healthy part of the town;
and has lately been thoroughly repaired, painted,
papered, and supplied with entirely new furniture.
Tho gentlemanly proprietor is assisted in the man
agement of the establishment by his father, John C.
Coverly, from Centre county, whose qualifications
and ability as a landlord have long been favorably
known. His t..b10 is inferior to none in the place,
being constantly supplied with the best the market
affords; and his charges are moderate. In view of
these facts it is unnecessary to add that Capt. Coy
erly's will be found a pleasant and agreeable real
, dence for sojourners in Harrisburg.
On the I Gth an interesting debate grew up in the
Senate out of a resolution offered, instructing the
Committee on the Judiciary to inquire into the
propriety of altering the Naturalization Laws.—
An account of this discussion will bo found in

On Thursday the 19th a message was received
from the President, on the subject of Mexico, ac

minister to that Republic. The President complains
of the insolvence of Mexico, and enumerates many
causes of war against her, but contents himself with
renewing his recommendation of the annexation of
Texas. The message was referred by the Senate
and House to their respective Committees on For
iegn Relations. The course of Mr. Tyler is con
demned by many of the friends of annexation.
Nothing else, worthy of vote, has transpired

the late Congressional election in Ohio, C. J. Mc-
Nulty, Clerk of the House of Representatives at
Washington. was one of the defeated Locofoco can
didates. The Louisville Journal says that as soon as
he learned his defeat he wrote the following laconic
letter to a friend. It is remarkably short, but not
so particularly sweet as some we have seen :
Dean Sin:--I am defeated and the party may
go to h--11. C. J. McNULTY.
No tidings have reached us as to whether the
party has left or not for the place specified by Mr.
McNulty in his letter, but we presume that it is on
the way.
Over twelve hundred foreigners were naturalized
in one week in Cincinnati, Ohio, a short time pre

A SAD CASE Or MILLERISM.—Tho deplorable
results of Millensm are beginning to be felt in this
city. We learn from a clergyman who is con
stantly visiting the poor, that among the cases that
have recently passed under his observation, is one
of a truly painful nature. A mechanic, who until
that time bad borne a very respectable character
and was an honest and hard working man, became
deluded under the Millerite doctrines abandoned
work, exhausted all his surplus funds, then sold the
furniture of his house. He had a wife and three
children, the youngest eighteen month old. When
the bubble exploded, he became little better titan an
infidel, took up with a woman of bad character,
abandoned his wife and little ones, and went off to
Baltimore. The deserted woman and her children
are now the tenants of a miserable garret, and have
absolutely been suffering with cold and hunger.—

Our enterprising fellow citizen, Z. G. Brown
Esq., we understand has in contemplation a tour

place. We wish him success.—Hot. Register.
Views of Mr. Adams.
A Washington correspondent of the Charleston
Courier gives the following sketch of the opinion
ofJohn Quincy Adams, as to what is likely to be
the course of the coming administration, as devel
oped in conversation. It is interesting and curious,
if not absolutely important:
I have heard several gentlemen speak of conver
sations held with John Quincy Adams, on the sub
ject of the results of the late election. His opin
ions are of interest at this time, and he is by no
means reserved in making them known. He says
that Texas will be brought in the Uuion, and that
the British Government will simply protest against
the act, and avail herself of the example to carry
into execution some of her own designs.
“She will, he says, take possession of Cuba and
we cannot complain of it after taking Texas. Great
Britian, he says, will guarantee to Spain the same
amount of revenue that she now receives from
Cuba. As to France, he says that government
cannot complain of the act, for she has taken pos
session of Algiers, and Great Britian will allow her
to extend her African possessions as far as she
pleases. Mexico, he says, will not make war up
on us, on account of the annexation.
"As to the Will; ho says, it will not be essentially
modified during Mr. Polk's administration. The
Government will need the whole of the present
revenue, especially after the annexation of Texas.
There must be an increase, he thinks, of the navy
and, army on that account.
The next Presidential contest would be between
Mr. Calhoun and Mr. Wright. Mr. Calhoun
would necessarily, in his opinion, have at least the
option of remaining in the State Department."
In December, 1843, a large sale of lands
took place in Hamilton county, Ohio, on account
of the non-payment of taxes, and the sale was pro
longed during two weeks, two hours on each day
being appropriated to the purpose. The opinion
was advanced that all the sales made after the first
day were not valid, and that titles made under such
sales could not confer ownership on the purcha
sers. This question came up before the Supreme
Court of the state a short time since, and after a
full argument, the decision of the court was render
ed, stating that the sales of the first day only were

rirOl Fire 11
Shirleyeburg, Dec. 16, 1844
Last night our village was
visited with an alarming fire, which originated in
the old building, formerly the old Methodist Church,
lately purchased by Mr. David Fraker, and occu
pied by him as a barn, It contained a considerable
quantity of wheat, oats, hay, and other cOmbusti
bles, to which the fire Was first communicated, and
when first discovered, the whole mass was envel
oped in flames; an exciting crisis now presented
itself ; the flames bursting forth to an alarming de
gree, accompanied with a strong breeze, varying its
direction alternately—sometimes towards the south
east, then veiring to the forth east, earring in its
course the burning flakes delves the town, threaten
ing an entire devastation of all within its range.
The fire was simultaneously communicated to an
adjoining stable and the house of Mr. Fraker, the
stable and the house of Dr. J. J. Applebaugh, the
house of John Sinelker, and that of M. S. Harri
son, the Presbyterian Church, and the barn of Eli
jah Anita. The fire having caught in the barnyard
of the latter, as also in the roof of the barn, in per
haps fifty different places; notwithstanding this
most heartrending emergency, none shrunk from
their duty ; through the calm, energetic and inde
fatigable efforts of the citizens, all was saved, save
the building in which the fire originated, without
much damage.
Much praise is due to the citizens genitially, es
pecially the ladies, who, God bless them, without
exception, were mingled with the noble hearted and
dexterous crowd, stimulating onward, others by their
energy, with buckets, pans in hand, furnishing wa
ter, by which means the fire was so unexpectedly
'rho noble-hearted young men, of which there
were not a few, who, with commendable zeal, ascend
ed to the house tops, extinguishing the fire where
ver communicated, rendering the most efficient ser
vice, at great peril of life, deserve much credit.
The small Girls and Boys also, all were laboring
to their utmost, with zeal and precision, as if stim
ulated by the wisdom and experience of maturer
age, with their little hands and agile limbs did ren
der the most efficient aid, by furnishing water
wherever needful.
The citizens too, of the neighborhood, came
timely to our rescue ; none could do more than they
did to arrest the consuming element ; indeed in all,
the hands of an Almighty providence was abund
antly manifested; no human effort, of itself, could
have been adequate to the emergency.
The loss to Mr. Fraker is from two to three
hundred dollars. The fire originated about six
o'clock in the evening, supposed to be the work of
an incendiary. No serious accident occurred to any
one, except a few slight burns, bruises and bodily

The Naturalization Lawn.
We extract the following from the Washington
correspondence of the U.S.. Gazette, under date of
the 16th inst.
Quite sit interesting debate arose in the Senate
this morning, which soon filled the gallery. Mr.
Johnson, of Louisiana, had offered a resolution, in
structing the Committee on the Judiciary to inquire
into the expediency of altering the Naturalization
I laws, extending the term of residence in this coun
try previous to being admitted to citizenship, and to
prohibit the immigration of foreign convicts to this
Upon this resolution being taken up, Mr. John
son took occasion to state briefly why he had offer
ed it. It was notorious, or at any rate it was every
where asserted, that enormous frauds had been
committed at the late election, or just previous to it,
in the admission of foreigners to the right of citi
zenship. It was stated that over three thousand
had been naturalized in a very few days in the city
of New York, and great numbers in Philadelphia,
and other places. He had no wish to interfere
with those who were already naturalized, or who
had declared their intentions to become citizens,
but he wished to restrain the enormous influx of
ignorant and debased persons Into this country.—
In the catty days of our republic, when this coun
try was a comparative wilderness, there was good
reason and sound policy for encouraging emigra
tion from abroad, but there were not the same rea
sons now for affording the same facilities to become
citizens. The great mass of those who came to
this country wero ignorant and unaccustomed to
republican institutions; some there were who were
well informed, but these were exceptions; we must
look at the great mass. He was opposed to ex
tending to these swarms of ignorant men the civil
rights of citizens, until they had been in this coun
try long enough to comprehend and understand our
institutions, and acquire an attachment to them and
to the country. It was enough, he thonght, that
they had other rights save that of voting. Ho was
also in favor of the passage of a law which should
prevent foreign governments from ttansporting
their convicts to our shores, and spewing them out
upon us. He did not look upon this as a party
question, but one rising above all party consid
Mr. Allen said that as the country generally did
not know that it was customary to allow all resolu
tions of inquiry to pass sub silentia, he merely
wished to say that in making no opposition to the
passage of the resolution, he did not wish to be un
derstood as giving his assent to it, as he was oppo
sed to extending the time required of foreigners to
reside hero in order to become citizens. He hoped
the Committee would embody their views in the
form of a definite propostion.
Mr. Archer said he was extremely glad this sub ,
ject had been brought to the notice of the country
in this grave form. Hod no otior senator brought
it before this body, he should have felt it his duty
Ito do so. It is a question which, mid Mr. A., in
my conscience, I believe has become the most im
portant of any question before the American people:
it is an issue that comprehends every other issue,
and he agreed with the Senator from Ohio, in the
hope that the Judiciary Committee would bring
forward some definite proposition for amending the
naturalization laws, removing the evils, and preven.
Ling the abuses which have grown up out of them,
and which have become serious and alarming.
Mr. Rives said that it had become evident that
we must have some further safeguards against the
evils and abuses of our naturalization laws, and ho
believed it the bounden duty of Congress to afford
the freest scope to inquiry upon this subject. That
frauds and abuses of the most enormous kind have
been committed, ho had not a particle of doubt.
Mr. R. thought that his friend from Louisiana,
would find an ample remedy for the evils and abu
ses he had spoken of, in the re-enactment of the
laws enacted under Jefferson and Madison, and
which were repealed under Mr. Monroe and Mr.
Adams. Those laws required the registration of
the immigrant when he arrived in this country, to
gether with a minute description of his person, his
age, birth place, &c. and the production of a copy of
this at the time of his application for naturalization,
so that there could be no mistake as to the person,
nor fraud as to the time he had been in the country.
Ho was not for departing lightly from the path pur
sued by our fathers. During fifty years, with the
exception of one Presidential lustrum, when the pe
riod was increased to fourteen years, (under the
elder Adams,) the period of probation required had
been five years. There had been no complaint of
the abuses now existing until the facilities for natu
ralization had been increased by the laws ho had
referred to, and he still thought that the re-enact
ment of these laws would put a stop to the enor
mous frauds of which the whole country complained.
The mode of naturalizing foreigners had degener
ated into a piece of legerdemain, a piece of panto
mime he heard of platoons of foreigners being
marched into a court room, and there, at the desk
of a side clerk, being transformed in an incredible
short time into American citizens, the clerk mum
bling rapidly something in a language which the
foreigner did not understand, and the latter swear
ing to it! This was a mere mockery, a farce, and
what the law never contemplated. It was intended
that the applicant should be examined in open
court, and by the Judge, and that the act of his
admission to the rights of citizenship should be a
solemn judicial act. What was now wanted was
a re-invigoration of the law, in order to put a stop
to the alarming and increasing abuses,
Mr. R. spoke With much animation, and his re
marks evidently told with effect. The discussion
had attracted a considerable number of spectators
into the gallery, who listened to him with great at
tention. The new Senators from Now York evi
dently felt very uncomfortable, hearing the charge
of fraud, wholesale fraud, made against their State,
and a pretty strong hinting that the election of
. President had been determined by it,and Mr. Dicker
son therefore rose and parried these thrusts as well
as he could, though he convinced nobody of their
Mr. Merrick said that he thought foreigners had
been unjustly charged with fraud; the charge lay
at the door of our own people—it was they, and
not the foreigners, who were to be blamed. He
was opposed to extending the probationary term,
but would go for preventing frauds, and for a strict
enforcement of the term of five years.
Mr. Foster, the other New York Senator, now
rose, and complained of the unjust imputation cast
upon the Courts of New York, which he undertook
to say, were conducted with as much propriety and
correctness as any Courts in the United States.—
It may be so, but those which naturalize by whole
sale in Now York city have got a terrible bad repu
, teflon. Mr. F. denied, of course, that there had
been frauds committed, and went on to laud for
eigners, who, he said gave stronger evidence of their
attachment to this country than natives did, be
cause they came here, whereas the presence of na
tives was the result of accident—they were born
here, and were here therefore without any volition
of their own ! ! For this reason, I inferred, he
thought the door of admission should be thrown
as wide open to them as possible. Perhaps lie
thinks the naturalization laws too stringent already,
and therefore a little fraud, a very little, by which a
few thousand shall be admitted just at a moment
when they are indispensible to secure their Presi
dental candidate, may be justified, Tins closed the
debate, and the resolution was adopted.

Friday and Saturday evenings, arrived about 9
o'clock, Saturday night. They left New York at
the appointed hours, via Long Island, but owing to
the depth of snow were obliged to return to Now

thirty miles to the westward of it, was from ten to I
twelve feet deep. Seven locomotives, at last ac
counts, were at work clearing the railroad track.
The snow was so deep on the railroad track be
tween Hartford and New Haven on Wednesday
night, that the ears were stopped and the locomotive
I employed in breaking a path. It reached Meriden,
and in the morning returned and took the cars and

It is suggested in the National intelligencor that
the legality of the electoral votes of Michigan and
Illinois will be disputed, on the grounds that the
laws of those States have nullified the naturalize
tion laws of the United States, In permitting for
eigners, not citizens of the United States, to vote

The Physician, " Malgre Lui," acquired immor
tality, by replying to the remark, "the heart is on
the left side of the human body" that "we have
changed all thnt." But who knows that the same
!tamed practitioner was better informed than those
tvho laughed at (what they considered,) Isis happy
bvasion. Wo find in a French paper before us, the
following statement :
In the College of San Carlos, in Madrid, is a
dissecting room, to which students resort to study
anatomy. Tho body of one who had just died in
the hospital was brought. Tho pupils arrived
with their scalpels, and commenced the work of
dissection. What was their astonishment to find
that the deceased had no heart! On a closer ex
amination, they found that the subject had the heart
placed on the right side of the breast; and all the
organs which are usually found on the right, were
found in the left side. He seemed to have been the
opposite of all his fellow men—a living and walk
ing antithesis.
" The professors, in their turn, examined the
subject, and to all appearances justified the obser
vations of the students. This is the fourth or fifth
instance of the kind recorded in the anatomical
annals of the human species."
To say now of a man, that " his heart is in the
right place," may have a signification different
from what it formerly conveyed.— U. S. Gazette.

Reading Railroad bridge over the Schuylkill at

tains ot l'eru, unconscious of the vast wealth that
lay hidden beneath its surface; so, till lately, have w e
strolled through our native forests, ignorant of the
fact that they contain ingredients which, in hands
skilled by study and experience, form by far the
most efficacious remedy for all kinds of Pulmonary
and Liver affections known to the world; yet this
true. Wild Cherry bark and Tar hive, indeed, been
used before, but their virtues could not be fully ap
preciated, because they wore not extracted:—
Dr. Wistar's has done this—Snd his Balsam of
Wild Cherry (which contains also an extract of
Tar) is astonishing every body, especially the M.
D.'s, by its wonderful' efficacy in Asthma, Liver
Complaints, Coughs, Colds, Bleeding of the Lungs,
first stages of Consumption, &c. This Balsam is
made from materials which nature has placed in alt"
northern latitudes as an antidote for diseases caused
by cold climates.
"Nature is but the mune toren effect
Whose cause is God."
Let us not neglect her planiest dictates. Always
be sure to get the genuine article, as spurious Bal•
some, &c. ore afloat.
