) Huntingdon, Jan. 29, 184.'x.
Ty.V. B. PALMER, Esq. (No. 59, Pine street
below Third, Philadelphia) is authorized to act as
Atv , .' for this paper, to procure subscriptions and
Sale of the Main Line.
The Philadelphia Enquirer of the 21st Inst. says ,
" At attempt was made yesterday at the Exchange,
to sell the Main Line of our State Improvements, in
conformity with an act of the Legislature, and the
decision of the people. But few persons were in
attendance, and no bid was made, when the sale
was adjourned until this morning."
The Case at Darr.
The Legislature of Rhode Island have
pissed a bill for the liberation of Dorr, on
the sole condition of his taking the usual
oath of allegiance to the State—the con•
(titian on which other insurgents have
been liberated. The only opposition that
the bill met with came from Dori's
friends. We should suppose that he
would thus accept his liberty, as he has
already admitted that the present Gov
ernment of Rhode Island is the true and
rightful one.
The Provinence Journal (1 Saturday
ITlonting slys
`The Committee on the petition for the lib.
.eration of Thomas W. Doer reported yes
terday by bill, liberating him upon his ta
king the oath of allegiance to the. State.
The bill was passed by a large majority.
-every Monte but two in the House and
three in the Senate voting sgainst
Yes ; the men who have been clamoring
at the Algerine cruelty which keeps Tho
stuns W. Dorr in the State Prison ho
have published such moving appeals to
lite sympathy of the people--who have
thawo upon their own imagination and
the public credulity for such pictures of
". loathsome dungeons" and t. barbarous
treatment," have recorded their cotes
against authorizing the victim of all th;s
cruelty" to be released upon taking the
very oath which each of them took when
he entered the General Assembly To
show the more plainly the motive which
influenced their votes, they declared by
two of their leaders that they did not con
sider. the oalh required to be in any de
gree degradisig,und that they dould cad
vise him to take it —and then voted against
allowing him to take it and to go free.—
'These same men, too, had voted for ex.
'tending pardon to the other persons in•
dieted on the same e , 'editions: and yester
day they voted against pardoning Dorr on
that condition Does any one ask the
motive for this apparently unaccountable
conduct They do not wish Darr to be
liberated. They can make mo:'e out of him
where he is. There he is a source of per
verted sympathy and political capital.—
Free he would be over their heads, and
unless he is greatly changed during his
imprisonment, he would ruin any party
which should follow his lead.
Therefore the Dorrite leaders wish to
keep him where he is, and they are ex
-ceedingly mortified to find that all their
blustering and all their insultshave failed
to provoke the General Assembly into re•
fusing to extend the act of amnesty
to him. They are unwilling to trust him
with the privilege of taking the oath and
leaving the prison ; they are afraid that he
will do as Dutee J. Pearce and others who
'have been indicted, with few excel,.
lions, have done. This is Dorrism; this
is a practical illustration of the sincerity
-ant the honesty and the sympathy for
'Dorr which distinguish the party.
We think Mr. Dorr's outdoor counsel•
logs should now, as a matter of policy,
advise him to come out. They can make
little more capital out of his incarceration
•by the blood thirsty Algerines after this,
and he would be worth something as a
lion out of doors

On motion the senate went into exec
utive session, when Mr. Chapman moved
that the Senate advise and consent to the
nomination of Thos. Burnside as Asso
ciate Judge of the Supreme Court.
Mr. Sterigere moved to postpone the
tether consideration of the nomination
until Saturday next. Ile was nut oppo
sed to Judge Burnside, but there was
now g tes , lotion before the committee on
Retrenchment and meformn, providing for
the reduction of the number of the
Judges of the Supreme Court, which he
thought ought to be acted upon.
Mr: Hill also spoke in favor of the
postponement. The committee would
he pi spared in a day or two to make a
report on the resolution.
Mr. Chapman opposed the motion.--
Nid a word had been uttered against
Judge Burnside, and delaying to act up
on his nomination might give an impres
sion abroad that there were serious charges
against his character and legal abilitieS.—
Mr. C. opposed the reduction of the rum
ber of Judges, and said that as the Judi•
chary committee in the oilier branch of the
Legislature ; mid reported adverse to the
reduction, he did not think the reason
given for the postponement, a good one.
Mr. Darsie thought it due to the corn•
mittee that they should make report be
fore the nomination vs as acted upon. He
wished to hear the opinion of legal gen
tlemen before he was prepared to vote.
Mr. Champneys followed in a speech
of some length. He was friendly to
Judge Burnside, but in this case Senators
should be blind to his interests, and leg
islate for the interests of the State, Mr.
C. went into an able argument to prove
that there was uo necessity for five
Judges and that Justice would be better
administered if the number were reduced
to three, It was a reform demanded by
the embarrassed condition of the Com
monwealth. He hoped the motion to
postpone would prevail.
Mr. Chapman replied, and the debate
• was further continued by Messrs. Ster
igere, Champneys and Sullivan.
Mr. Sullivan favored the reduction.
Expedence taught him that more Judi
cious decisions were made by a small
number of Judges than by a large one.
tie trusted that the present crisis would
not influence Senators, but that they
would decide the same now as they
would if another administration were
not coming into power. lie did not wish
to see ally favoritism shown in the halls
of legislation.
Betore Mr. Sullivan had concluded his
remarks, a committee from the House was
announced, who informed the Senate
that the House was ready for their recep.
thin for the purpose of going into election
for State Treasurer.
Alter smite time the Senators returned
to their Chamber, and Mr. Sullivan,
ler on the part of the Senate, reported
the pi oceedings of the Convention..
Mr. Sullivan resumed his remarks.— ,
- Fle said the qualifications or Judge Burn
side had nothing to do with the decision
of this question. He hoped as an act of
courtesy to the committee, the motion to
postpone would be sustained.

When I contemplate the interests of
our Commonwealth, as an independent
sovereignty, and as a member of the
community of American states, thh mul
tiplied relations over which it exerts a
supervising guardianship, and the pecu
liarly weighty obligations that press upon
it at the present moment, I feel how
perfectly I am qualified to discharge, and
even to comprehend aright, the ardous
and complicated duties to which I have
been called. To him who watches over
the destinies of States, as well as men,
land whose favor is light and strength, I
look upwards with humble trust, that He
will over-rule any errors and give effi
ciency to toy honest efforts for the public
Happily the principles which should
regulate the administration of the State
have been 104 since declared and estab
licked by our republican fathers. They
are few and clear. That equal and ex
act justice should be administered to men
of all parties in politics, and all persua
sions in religion--that our public faith
should be kept sacred under all circum
stances—that freedom of religion. of std.
(rage, and of the press, should be held in
violate—that general education is essen
tial to the preservation of liberty—that
the separate rights and powers of the ex
ecutive, legislative and judicial depart
ments of the government should be strict
ly maintaitied----that the government
should be faithfully, but frugally adinitlis
tered, and all to whom it is entrusted held
to frequent and strict accountability—
that particular mischief should be correc
ted by general rather than special laws—
that the grant of exclusive privileges to
some is repugnant to our whole system,
the intent of which is to make firm the
equal rights of all —that men associated
for gain should, in common with others,
be liable individually for all their joint
engagements—and that the obedience of
the public agent to the will of his consti
tuents is essential to a r;ght administra
tion of the government, and to the preser
vation of freedom.
These are the leading principles by
which I propose to be guided in the
performance of my official duties, They
are all of them primary truths, affecting
the basis of our government, and needing
no better confirmation of their value, than
is to be found every whet e in the history
of out country.
Thus far the action of our system has
illustraud the capacity of man for self
government, and has shown that, entrus
ted with his own political destinies, and
unincumbered by bad laws, he advances
steadily in knowledge and true happiness.
The doubts at first entertained of its ade
quacy to meet all the contingencies which
arise in the affairs of nations, have been
dissipated by experience. The practical
operation of the governments of the States
and of the Union, in advancing the wel
fare of the inhabitants of our extended and
still extending country, demonstrate their
utility. This is the result of that simple
and natural organization, founded upon
the assent of the people. by which their
sovereign will rules in their local afftirs,
is extended to the State governments, and
by a happy combination gives direction to
the government of the Union. Their
competency to govern themselves is con
firmed by the peace, happiness and pros
perity, which their government has secu
red to the citizens of these States, and is
an assurance that in their hands the wel
fare of all will be, as has been, guarded
and advanced.
Fellow-Citizens of the Senate and House
of Representatives :--It has not been my
purpose to enter at this tune upon the
consideration of particular topics, which
may more properly be reserved for other
communications. There is, however, one
subject of such vital interest to the honor
and well-being of the Commonwealth, as
to challenge the very earliest expression
of my views respecting it. 1 allude, of
course, to the condition of our public debt.
It their is one distinguishing trait of
character in our citizens, it is that of liv
ing within their means, and honestly pay.
ing their debts; and if there is one certain
result in the working of our representa
tive system, it is, that the character of the
Government is identical with that of the
people. By the application of t h is truth,
which is equally simple and certain, our
duty under existing circumstances, is
rendered as plain as it is obligatory.--
The credit of the State must be redeemed.
We ale urged to the !performance of this
duty, not only by our fidelity as reFfresen
tativPs, but alio by i the principles of;sound
morality, by honest pride as Pentolva
nians, and by our obligations to the Union.
to inAintaiti and elevate the National
I shalt of course not be understood ht
these remarks As expressing any opinion
on the question of the immediate ability of
the State Treasury to resume its payments
of interest. 'lie question is an extreme
ly grave one in its consequences, not to
the creditor, only, but to the future char
acter of the State ; and it requires for its
safe decision a careful examination of our
fiscal condition, including our prospective
income and liabilities, which I have not
had the means of making. The con%itt
eration of this whole subject will be among
the earliest and most interesting uf my
official duties, and I shall hasten to sub
mit to the Legislature the views to which
it may conduct me. Meanwhile, gentle
men, I pledge myself to you, to the good
people of the State, and to all its credi
tors, that on my part nothing shall be
left undone, within the constitutional
competency of the Exectitiite to ensure,
the prompt, exact and : full payment of alt
the dues of P.rinsylvania.
I congratulate you, gentlemen. on the
general prosperity of our constituents.—
It is impossible to look out upon our
Commonwealth without recognizing our
indispensable obliga.ions to the Author of
Good. A genial and healthful climate—
s soil fertile of agricultural productions,
yet pre-eminently abounding in mineral
wealth—a hard y and intelligent pop-
ulation- -a government of the peop:e
themselves, that secures to industry, en
terptise and skill, their appropriate re
wards:—these, by His benignant care,
have bore up under concentrated trials,
which might have crushed an older but
less favored community. Let us be true
to ourselves that His blessing may abide
with us. FRS. R. bHUNK.
