THE REDUCTION OF POSTAGE am THE
TARIFF OF 1842.
The passage of the low postage law will proba
bly prevent the repeal of the present Tariff act.—
The reduction of the rates of letter postage is so
great that the revenue from that source will fall off
to a great extent; and besides this, taking off the
postage of newspapers for thirty miles from the
place of publication, will reduce the revenue front
that source probably $500,000 annually,which must
be met by appropriations, which will consume all
the revenue in the treasury from time to time.
MESMIRISM.-The National Intelligencer states
that a young lady of Washington. was thrown into
a mesmeric sleep on Thursday the 20th ultimo, by
Prof. De Bonneville, before a large audience, and
that whilst in that condition a tooth was extracted
without giving the patient be least pain. Dr. J.
H. Relic, a representative in Congress from Missou
ri, and Dr. J. M. Gibson, of Louisiana, who were
present and witnessed the operation, have publish
ed a card, in which they declare themselves fully
convinced that " painful surgical operations may be
performed un patients in a mesmeric state without
The Postage Law.
Mr. Merrick's hill " to reduce the rates of
age, to limit the use and correct the abuse, of the
franking privilege, sod for the prevention of frauds
on the revenues of the Post Office Department,"
has passed both House. of Congress and is signed
by the President. From and after the Ist of July
next, the postage on every single letter conveyed in
the mail 300 miles or under will be me MITA ;
over 300 miles Tex CENT.; double, treble and
quadruple in like proportion, every letter or parcel
not exceeding half all ounce to be deemed a single
letter. Newspapers are to be transmitted free of
charge for 30 miles from the place of publication,
■nd beyond that distance the charges to remain as
at present, The law also limits the franking privi•
lege, and guards it from abuse by suitable penalties.
We shall lay a more ewentle4 synopsis of it before
cue teatime lost week.
Mr. Polk's Inaugural Address
Will he found in another part of this paper. We
presume it must for the present he taken as his
"confession of faith," and as such, we admit that
lye are not disappointed in the man. There are
some parts ot• it, with which we have no fault to
find except that they are too declamatory for the
President of the United States, and savor strongly
of the demagogue. He wishes to be considered a
strict constructionist, and yet favors the annexation
of Texas, 1 foreign country, to the United States.
lie declaims moat lustily on "the blessings secured
to our happy land by our federal Union," and por
trays in glowing colors the atrocity of the treason
"of him who would lift his hand to destroy it;"
and ye tin the same document he argues in favor
of Annexation, which is a virtual dissolution of
the Union. This shows what inconsistencies we
may expect ir. his Administration.
Then follows a superlatively ungenerous fling at
the Abolitionists, to whom lie owes his election.—
Their " schemes and agitations" are a " source of
deep regret" to the new President. Alas! Presi
dents, as well as Republics, are ungrateful.
The Demagogue stands forth in bold relief and
calls from the "vasty deep" 'he ghost of the National
Bank. Unlike those patriots and sages, Washing
ton, Madison, Jefferson, Gallatin and Marshall, who . '
redeemed our country from Britain's yoke, and
reared up this Republic, the YOUNG President—
grand eon of a Tory—says, "We need no na
tional banks, or other extraneous institutions, plan
ted around the government to control or strengthen
it in opposition to the will of its authors." But his
very silence about the subtreasury gives us to un
derstand that Mr. Polk thinks we need this favorite
and oft-defeated measure of Mr. Van Buren.
'l•he subject of a Tariff is also discussed; but not'
c word is said about the Tariff " as it is." Though
the Whig Tariff of 1842 is not mentioned, yet he
is driving at it all the while. The President's talk
is precisely the talk of the free trade men of the
South. But then, to enable the "• democracy" of
poor, deluded Pennsylvania to put any construction
upon this part of the address, he cites his letter to
John K. Kane, by which the said " democracy"
were so completely "gulled" before the election.
Even the style of the address might be much
better. There is a great redundancy of words in it.
If, when the reader has gone through it, he does not
admit that three columns of it might be compressed
into two, his opinion differs greatly from our own.
" Blair County."
The vote on the second reading of the first sec-
tion of the Blair county bill was reconsidered on
Monday of last week by a vote of 15 to 14, and
the bill passed though second reading by the same
vote; but on the question of preparing for third
reading it was again defeated by a tie vote-15 to
15—Mr. Sterigere, who was not in his seat when
the bill was taken up, having come in while the
vote was being taken. Messrs. Quay and Heck
man were absent, and Mr. Chapman did not vote.
The vote was the sante as that or, the first section,
published last week, except that Mr. Ross, of Lu
zerne, voted against the bill, and Mr. Chapman did
not vote at all, as above stated.
On Saturday last another reconsideration was
moved by Mr. Rahn and seconded by Mr. Craig.—
This is our latest information, by Monday night's
mail ; and our paper is put to press this evening
(Tuesday) before the mail has arrived. There is
much anxiety manifested by the people of this
I county generally and the Senate is keeping them
long in a state of suspense. We hope to be able
to make known the fate of said county in our next
National Miniature Gallery.
- - - -
We have during the winter noticed with much
interest the progress made by Messrs. ANTHONY,
El/WARDS & Co. in taking daguerreotype likeness
es of distinguished persons for their collection in
New York. To most of our readers this is known
as the "National Miniature Galkry." and it has
attracted much notice from the press of that city as
an object of very great interest. We have seen the
various steps in the formation of this gallery, as for
three sessions past Messrs. A., E. & Co. have been
permitted to occupy the military committee room of
the Senate, where the likenesses are to be seen be-
fore they are transmitted to New York ; and we con
hardly imagine an exhibition more attractive to the
public than the accurate likenesses of all, or nearly
all, the eminent individuals of our country. It must
also noon lie of great value, as one and another of
those who have lived long enough to attain celebrity
are passing from the stage of life. How priceless
would be a good daguerreotype of Washington,
Franklin, or any of the fathers of our country.--
All the objections to " daguerreotypes" have been
obviated by these gentlemen,in whose hands the art
has advanced to a perfection far beyond our expec
t tenons. Our friends who visit New York will do
well to visit the " National Miniature Gallery," at
247 Broadway ; there is no charge for admission.
The engraving of the Senate of 1842 from likenes
ses in this gallery is making good speed towards
completion, and will, undoubtedly be far superior to
any similar work of art produced in this country.
GIVE TOUR GUILD A NEWNPAPLII.-A child be
ginning to read becomes delighted with it newspa
per, because lie reads of names and things which
are familiar, and he will make progress accordingly.
A newspaper in one year is worth a quarter's school
ing to a child and every father must consider that
substantial information is connected with advance
ment. The mother of a family, being one of its
heads, and having a more immediate charge of
children, should herself be instructed. A mind
occupied becomes fortified against the ills of life
and is braced for any emergency. Children amus
ed 'ay reading or study, are of course more conside
rate and more easily governed. How many thought
less young men have spent their earnings in taverns
or grogshops who ought to have been reading!--
How many parents, who never spent twenty dol
lars for books for their family would have given
thousands to reclaim, a son or daughter who had
ignorantly and thoughtlessly fallen into temptation!

Maps of Texas,
Congress, it seems, has had maps of Texas en
graved, and the members have been engaged in dis
tributing them among their dearly beloved constitu
ents. Some person, curious in geography and land
marks, has thought fit to inquire into the accuracy
of these maps, and they turn out to he wholly in
correct. The following statements made by locofo
co members in Congress on Tuesday of last week,
prove that these maps are not to be relied on :
"Mr. BRINKERHOFF said he had addressed a let
ter to the Topographical Corps of Engineers, call
ing for the Texas boundaries previous to the Texas
revolution. The information he received was that
there was nothing in the Bureau to give him the
information he asked. Mr. B. said he was glad
that the subject had been brought before Congress,
that members were beginning to see that the infor
mation which had been circulated was incorrect.—
The hill which hos passed this House, and which
had declared that the linear 36 deg. 30 min. should
be the ground of compromise, was more than two
degrees North of any line ever owned by Texas.
A letter was then read from Com. More, of the
Texian Navy, declaring that the map of Texaswas
scarcely correct in any particular. So said Mr.
HAMLIN, of Maine, and others but the House con
firmed the Report and the maps are to be circulated.
It seems then that the Texas-men, in the face of
evidence of the incorrectness of these mops, resol
ved to go on and issue a new edition of them, al
though the compromise line!fixed to designate the
boundary between Freedom and Slavery is more
than two degrees north of any line ever owned by
Texas." Thus then the Texas Resolutions go to
the world with a fraud upon their face. They pro
fess to exclude slavery from all of the territory of
that Republic which lies north of 36 deg. 30 min.
of north latitude, and yet Texas does not, and ne
ver has come within two degrees of that parallel.—
Mr. BItINKERIIO ,, F said on the occasion above re
ferred to, that the boundary of Texas, as laid
down on Tanner's Atlas, is the Red River in lati
tude thirty-four degrees north. All the ancient
Mexican territory north of the Red River, north of
thirty-four degrees, is included within the State of
New Mexico, of which Santa Fe is the Capital!—
And this unquestionably is the true state of the
case. Texas never extended north of thirty-four
degrees, all north of that line is New Mexico.—
Texas never exercised any jurisdiction over it,
either when she was herself a member of the Mexi
can confederacy, or since her independence. Texan
laws were never acknowledged there, and the foot
of the Texan soldier never trod upon the soil of
New Mexico, except in the character of a prisoner
of war. It was not hers originally, nor is it hers
by right of revolution, possession or conquest."—
Such is the cheat and fraud upon the people of the
free States which is practised in these resolutionafor
the annexation of Texas.—York Republican.
We happened to drop into the polishing shop of
Mr. GROVES, the other day, and enquired into the
demand for Hollidaysburg Marble; and we were
not only much pleased, but surprised, to hear that
he had heavy orders, from different points in the
West, for Marble slabs and blocks. From Louis
ville, Ky., we were informed he had lust received
an order for Marble in the rough to amount of 300
feet, and from Cincinnati another order for a quan
tity of dressed for mantles, &c. These orders,
' while they indicate in some degree the extent of the
demand for our marble, are mentioned not no much
on this score, as to show that our trade in this arti
cle is finding its way down the valley of the Mis
eissippi, and bids fair to become, at no distant day,
highly important and of vast advantage to our town.
The quaiity of this marble has now been fully
and fairly tested. and it is sent into market with
every confidence as unsurpassed in the country.—
Persons visiting our town should not fail to call on
Mr. Grove's establishment. On the counter we
noticed one of the handsomest pieces of marble we
have ever seen; resembling more nearly the back of
a Guinea fowl than any thing else we can liken it
to, and bearing the finest polish.—Register.
Are Him. An LE Men 1) Ell en .—The Louisville
Journal giyes a description of the murder perpetra
ted by Yancy, now a member of Congress, which
took place on the porch of his own house, in Edge
field district, South Carolina. 'rho person killed
was Dr. Earle, the Uncle of Yancy's wife. The
parties were discussing some political subject, and,
during the discussion, Dr. Earl gave the lie to Yen
cy. Yancy drown pirtol, and demanded that Earle
should retract. Earle refused to do so and Yancy
fired and killed him. Yancy was tried on a charge
of murder, and the attempt was made to chow that
in the agitation of the moment, he fired uninten
tionally. The jury returned a verdict of man
slaughter, and the prisoner was sentenced to a fine
of fifteen hundred dollars and one year's imprison_
meat. The Governor remitted one thousand dol
lars of the fine and nine months of the imprison
ment, and Yancy moved to Alabama.
ca. The Legislature of Ohio is famous for pos
sessing members sddicted to making laws and re
solves in poetry, and sundry good laughs have been
had over the vagaries in verse, which enliven their
official proceedings. But a new feature has been
introduced of a striking character, which is not so
commendable or pleasing, and the first developement
of it was a few evenings since, when a bill to amend
the charter of the city of Cincinnati being under
consideration, ono of the representatives of that city
took off his coat, and laid it on his desk, swearing
that he would lick the first three men that voted
for its engrossment ! What a pity the belligerent
member devoted himself to what is known as a civil
calling. lie should be a general in the army at

With regard to Dr. Wislar's Balsam of Wild

years without effect.
In fact we think it one of the most valuable rem

you should give it a general circulation, and make
its virtues known. Yours truly.
