Tux Wnto VICTORY IY CoNNEcTtctrr.—The
Whigs have swept the board in Connecticut. They
have elected their entire ticket, and will have a ma
jority in both branches of the Legiglature, a Whig
Governor, Lt. Governor, and Whig officers to pre
side over every Department of State Government.
There will be a clear Whig delegation in Congress
of four members—all to which the State isentitled.
Connecticut, it wit be seen, has done nobly, glo
•riously, as well as Massachusetts and Vermont, or
the best of the Whig states of the Union. Mr.
Niles has received the moot marked condemnation
for his vote in the United States Senate in favor of
the Annexation of Texas to the Union. The change
of a whole State representation in Congress from
Locofocoism to Whig men and Wig measures, is
a most gratifying result. We expected that Con
necticut would do well, but she has done gloriously
well, and the Whigs there deserve the thanks of
the Union.

Cottgresa from New Hampshire, voted against the

The Main Lined
'The Philadelphia Inquirer, says :
Several able speeches have been made
during the present session of the Legis
lature in relation to tl.e sale of the pub
lic corks. One by Mr. Sanderson„ of
Lebanon county, embodies facts and
statements that deserve to be circulated
everywhere throughout the Common
wealth. Mr. S. avowed himself io favor
of the bill to carry the express wishes of
the people into elrect, and fur the very
reason that he thought the interests of the
commonwealth imperiously required such
a measure. He thought that as the Main
Line could not be sold for 820,000,000,
according to the act adopted at the last
session, modifications were necessary,
in order to lender the act available. He
believed anmeover, that if the line could
not be sold for $20,000,000, the price
should be 'educed to 516,000,000; and he
affirmed that the original cost was but
814,361,320. He gave a table, showing
the net revenue of the Main Line, up to
the Ist of January last, amounted to $l,-
606,472; while the interest on the orig
inal cost at 5 per cent„ for ten years, or
or about the time it had been in operation,
formed an aggregate of 87,180,660.
Thus, he said, the State had lost five and
a half millions of dollars during the last
ten years by this line. He also gave a
statement of the expenditures and reve
nue of this portion of our improvements,
duriug the last year, thus—
Calcu:ating the interest at 6 per cent. on the cast
of construction, $718,066 01
Add Oxpenditures; $446,141 06
Loss to the State, 215,211 38
Instead therefore of the Main Line being a source
of revenue of $500,000 last year as represented.
the same has been an actual loss to the State of
more than Two Hundred Thousand Dollars.
But, he said, the statement of the Au
ditor General made a still more intravot
able result inasmuch as the Canal Com
missioners had represented the nett reit
enue. $148,000 higher that: the Auditor
General. 'faking this Atatetnent, there
tore as genuine, the loss of the Common
wealth was s364,ofit. Why, then, ask
ed Mr. Sanderson, with these facts before
should we doubt the propriety of sel
ling these works? Evan a sale at $16,-
6011,000, would, he argued, be a benefit
to the people. Had sucrt sale been made
on the Ist January, 1844, the State would
have secured more than $500,000 by the
operation. Mr. S. continued:
"But my worthy friend from Centre, objects to a
wile being made, because he has some apprehension
that the people would become unwilling then to pay
their taxes, and that repudiation would soon follow.
I have no such fears. The expressed wishes of the
people, as well as their interest, is my guide on this
subject ; and, I tell that gentleman that the course
which he desires the Legislature to pursue, is infi
nitely mote calculated to bring about such a deplo
rable state of things. They have decided by an
overwhelming majority that the Main Line shall be
sold, and is it not much more reasonable to suppose,
that they wiH become restive and dissatisfied, if we
set up our wisdom as superior to theirs, and refuse
to carry their decision into erect 1 The danger
apprehended by my friend, is imaginary. The
people are honest. They are Willing to bear the
burdens of taxation, however onerous, if they have
but the assurance that the money thus wrung from
them, is applied to intlegitimate puipose. But they
rlvell inoWthat such will never be the case, as long
as those improvements are under the charge of the
Commonwealth. Hence the reason of the unpre
cedented majority given by theta in favor of the
sale. Let us carry out their decision, and pass a
law under which they can be sold: Let us do this
and my word for it, there is no danger of repudia
tion. They will then cheerfully pay their taxes
towards the liquidation of the remainder of the
State debt. Refuse to carry their expressed will
into elrect, and my friend may, with much mote
propriety, be apprehensive of the consequenced."
Dlr. S. thought moreover that )he Main
Line woult! be a source or profit, if man
aged by a Company, while under its pres
ent inanagernent he could entertain n 6
such expectation, lie stated a fact well
calculated to startle a portion of our cit•
izens--namely, that "'the tWenty•tWo
counties which florin:: the last four years
hail a State tax of 92,159,844 48 assess
ed, of which they paid $1,8'12,151 02 and
received for schoni purposes only $741,-
619 00 gave a majority of about 40,000
in favor of the sale of the Main Line,
while the remaining counties hail assessed
0604, 693 IS of which they paid $298,-
057 24, and received for school purposes
0546, 864 00, being $248,806 76 more
than they paid, gave about 20,000 major
ity against the sale."
It would seem from this,!that the tax
payers are in favor of the sale, while those
who refuse to pay their taxes, oppose the
the rsure.
Rev. Mr. kairehildi
Ther? has been, for some time past, a
trial going on in Boston, of the Rev. Mr.
Fairchild, who was charged by a young
woman, who was a servant in Ins family,
with being the lather of her child. Mr.
F. had been pronounced guilty by an
ecclesiastical court but a criminal charge
was made, the grand jury found a bill,
and the testimony of the young woman
was given, clear and explicit, with most
offensive and indelicate particulars. Mr.
Fairchild was present, with his wife, du •
ring the whole of the trial. The
pronounced 'shat we deem, judging from
the testimony, a just verdict of not guil
They retired at twenty minutes before
eleven, and after a deliberation of seven
and a half hours, they came in with a ver
dict of " not guilty." Before it was an.
flounced, the Sheriff requested the audi
ence to express neither approbation nor
the reverse, at the result, but when th , ,
foreman responded to the question, put
by the clerk, " riot GUILTY," there was
an outburst of applause which could not
be restrained. The Jury were unanimous
fur acquittal.
As soon as the commotion created by ,
the announcement of this result had sub
sided, Mr. Faikhild arose, and in a Man
ly and impressive, yet deeply feeling man
ner, addressed the Court in the following
" May it please your honor—[laving
been acquitted by a jury of my country,
I wish now to state that from the first
moment I heard the Grand Jury had found
a bill of indictment against me, I deter
mined to meet the accusation as soon as I
could, acting under a sense of duty to my
self and the advice of coosel. I deter
mined to return to the old Bay State, to
this good city of Boston, to my former
acquaintances and friends, amongst
whom I hail labored for fifteen years in
the gospel ministry and who had been
witnesses of my daily life and conversa
tion. I did return ; and though under
the condemnation of an ecclesiastical
council, I found a host of friends to cheer
and comfort nie. I have submitted my
self to the la'vs, as a good citizen should
do ; and the result is before you. Daring
the trial my mouth has been closed ; but
I now declare with all solemnity, as in the
presence of my Maker and Judge, that I
um innocent ol the crimes charged upon
ine. My enemies and persecutors I for-
give, and commend them to the forgiving
mercy of Almighty God. The pains, the
agonies, which they have caused me to
endure, no tongue can tell. They hove
brought me and mine almost to poverty ;
but I will trust in the Lord and fear no
evil. According to the decree of the late
council at Exeter, I am now restored to
that ministry in which I have endeavored
to labor with all fidelity for thirty years;
and being thus restored to my office, I
greatly rejoice; I will only acid that I
thank your honor for your patience and
impartiality in the discharge of your duty
as judge. I thank the county attorney
for his courtesy, and the jury fur their
just and righteous verdict."
When Mr. Fairchild and his wife came
out of the Court House, they were recei
-OEII by shouts of enthusiastic cheers.
Besides being out of business for a
year, Mr. Fairchild had been subjected to
an expense of about *QM, on account
of the Charge which has been ()Sought
against him, and he is now a poor man ;
that is, if a man can be called poor who
possesses such a noble, high spirited, and
true hearted wife as Mrs. F. has shown
herself to be by her devotion to her hus
band throughout the fearful ordeal which
lie has passed.—Boston Post,

from what we see and feel, that the animal
body is, in its organs and functions. subject
to derangement, inducing pain, and tend ing
to its destruction. In this disordered state,
we observe nature providing for the re-es
tablishment of order, by exciting some salu
tary evacuation of the morbitic matter, or by
some other operation, which escapes our
imperfett sensed and researches. In some
cases she brings on a ci isis by the bowels, in
others by sweating, &c. &c.
Now experience has taught us that there
are certain substances, by which, applied to
the living body, internally br externally, we
can at will produce the same evacuations,
and thus do in a short time, what nature
could do but slowly, and do effectually what
she might not have strength to accomplish.
\V hen then we have seen a disease cured by
a certain naturalevacuation, should that dis
ease occur again, we may count upon curing
it by the use of such substances, as we know
bring about the same evacuation, which w e
had belnre observed to cure a similar disease.
It is in consequence of the over which
the Brandreth Pills exert upon the whale
system, that makes them so universally ben
eficial. It is because they impart to the
body, the power to expel disease without
leaving any evil effect.
As a general family medicine, Brandreth's
Pills are, it is believed by the Proprietor,
superior to every other offeied to the public.
