Mr. DARSIE, from the select com
mittee in •the Senate, to whom was re;
ferred so much of the Governor's An
nual message as relates to the Tariff,
made the following Report :
The views entertained by the Govern
or on the subject of a protectiie tariff
are important, because they are supposed
to reflect the opinions of the people who
have placed him at the heed of Our State
government. In relation to the consti
tutionality of such a tariff the Governor
says : " I can entertain no doubt of the
constitutional power of the Federal Gov
ernment to make such discriminations
in the rates of duties on imports, as may
afford reasonable encouragement to do
mestic manufactures and productions,
which may be injuriously affected by for
eign competition." To this sentiment
your committee yield the most hearty
concurrence. Pennsylvania has never
doubted the right of the General Gov
ernment to protect the industry of the
country, and has uniformly insisted that
it is the duty of the Government to ex
ercise that right in such a manner as to
embrace all the great interests of the
nation. The people tvere satisfied with
the tariff of 1842, because it did afford
that protection and encouragement, not
only to the Manufacturing interests, but
to the agricultural and other productions
of the country. This is a truth so well
settled by universal experience, that it
has never been denied. President Polk
admits in his last annual message to the
present Congress, when he declares it
to be a subject of congratulation, that
there has been no period in our past his
tory, when all the elements of national
prosperity have been so fully developed.
" Abundance, says he, has crowned the
toil of the husbandman, and labor in all
its branches, is receiving an ample reward."
On the very day perhaps, that the Pre
sident penned this public declaration of
the salutary operations of the American
tariff of 1842, that tariff was superceded
by the new law of 1846. It is with feel
ings of regret and humiliation, that your
committee have read and considered that
part of the message of the Governor in
which he declares anew his private opin
ions upon this great question, as follow:
" The history of our legislation on this
subject demonstrates most conclusively,
that a tariff to be permanent, which is
so essential to the manufacturing as well
as the great interests of the country,
must be reasonable and equitable; and
that all attempts to establish a rate of
ultra protection ; or IoW horizontal duties,
have only tended to keep the question in
a state of constant agitation, than which
nothing can be more prejudicial to the
business interests of the conimunity.—
I am therefore ; itt favor of such just dis
criminating duties as may be sufficient
to sustain all our great national inter
ests against injurious competition from
abroad : such as will give to the home
manufacturer and producer reasonable
profits upon his capital, and enable him
to pay his workmen fair wages, without
unnecessarily taxing the consumer."
Again, " should the changes made in the
rate of duties by the tariff act of 1846,
affect injuriously any of the great inter
ests of the country, we must unite our
efforts to induce Congress, to Whose care
and discretion the subject is committed
by the Constitution, and on whose wis
dom and justice we may safely rely to
make all just and reasonable amend
This language is vague, ambiguous
and suspicious. Those who consider it
attentively, will detect in it the same
subtle poison that was infused in the
letter of James K. Polk to John K. Kane,
on the same subject ; published in 1844.
"The history of our legislation on this
Subject," says the Governor "demon
strates most conclusively, that a tariff
to be permanent,' must be reasonable and
equitable." Is the history of the repeal
of the tariff of 1842, part of the history
to which the Governor appeals 1 And
does he mean to say, that the tariff was
not permanent, because it was neither
reasonable nor equitable? Your comm it
mittee can put no other construction
upon his language ; it admits of no
other, and the just discriminating duties,
which the Governor says he is in favor
of, are very much such duties as Mr.
Polk favored in the letter above referred
to, written to Mr. Kane.
It has not been the fashion of Penn
sylvania Governdrs to deal in language
of doubtful meaning, when discussing a
subject so vital to the interests of our
Commonwealth. Hitherto, they have
asserted our rights in plain and manly
terms. " The policy of a protective
tariff," says Governor Wolf in his mes
sage of December 7th, 1831, " and en
couragement given to works of internal
improvement of a national character, by
the General Government, are favorite
measures with the people of Pennsylva
nia, and the former is considered by
them as identified with their best inter
ests." Referring in the same Message
to complaints then made in some sections
of the country, with regard to the " sup
posed oppressive character" of the tariff,
he says, " we are admonished to restrain
our sympathies in behalf of our com•
plaining brethren, lest, in binding our
selves to aid in relieving them from an
imaginary oppression, we put ourselves
in a condition to be seriously oppressed."
Again, in his message of December 6th,
1832, when Ole dissolution of the Union
was threatened, and a sister State was
in arms against the General Government,
for the purpose of nullifying the tariff
law, Gov. Wolf, true to our ancient faith,
and firm in its support, declared that the
interests of Pennsylvania; as a manu
facturing state, are so interwoven with
the protective policy, that she at least
Cannot eon Sent that it should be aban
The friends of the protective policy
had reason to believe that Ciov. Shunk
would stand upon the high platform
which his predecessors occupied, and
boldly proclaim the fact, that Pennsyl
vania is a Protective tariff state, and
wears no yoke of servitude to any pow
er, much less to such a power as would
reduce her free laboring sons to a level
with the Southern Slaves. In this they
have been disappointed. The protective
tariff'of 1842 has been stricken down
by those who professed to be its authors
and defenders, although no murmur was
heard against its operations in any sec
tion of the country, and the Governor of
this great state, that. has been benefitted
by its protective features, more than any
other in the Union, views its destruction
with apparent approbations. He is con
tent with the suggestion to the Legisla
ture, that should the changes made in
the rate of duties by the tariff act of
1846, affect injuriously, any of the great
interests of the country, we must unite
our efforts to induce Congress, to whose
care and discretion the subject is com
mitted by the constitution, and on whose
wisdom and justice we may safely rely,
to make all just and reasonable amend
Your committee feel authorized to de
clare, that the Governor does not repre
sent in these sentiments the opinion of
the people of Pennsylvania. They are
not disposed to risk their prosperity in
an experiment. They know what their
interests are, and how well they were
protected by the act of 1842, and they
now demand the repeal of the odious act
of 1846. They appeal to the friends of
the protective system in all parts of the
nation, to be determined and united.—
They cannot, with safety to themselves,
consent to a mere amendment, in the'.
present vicious act, with the view of
reconciling particular interests, and thus
create dissensions among themselves.—
They must regard all such proposals to
amend as mere political tricks to divide
and conquer them.
The industry of the country has not
began to feel the effects of the new Ta
riff of 1846. The great demand for Iron
in Europe—the rise of Cotton in Eng
land, and other accidents, may enable us
to enjoy our present prosperity for some
time to come, but when these circum-1
stances cease to exist, American labor
will cease to receive an 'ample reward.'
We shall relapse to the prostrate condi
tion which the tariff of 1842 found, and
from which it relieved us.
The failure of the potato crop in Ire
land, almost the sole dependence of a
large portion of the population of that
country, and the scarcity of grain in
Europe generally, have occasioned a tem
porary demand for bread-stuffs in the
United States for exportation ; and the
American farmer, by this accident, has
the benefits of a foreign as well as a
home market for his produce. But it is
only in seasons of great scarcity, in
other countries, that we can expect to
derive great advantages from the modi
fication of the British corn laws. The
home market is the great dependence of
our farming population, and a protective
tariff is the life of that market. This is
a plain proposition, and was well under
stood in the memorable political contest
of 1844—50 satisfied were the friends
of Mr. Polk, that he could not receive
the vote of Pennsylvania except as the
tariff candidate, that he was pledged by
them to the support of the tariff of 1842.
" , Polk, Dallas, Shunk and the Tariff of
1842," was their battle-cry in our State,
and (admitting that there were no frauds
practised at the polls) the people of this
State decided in favor of the Democratic
candidates. But their vote was for Polk,
Dallas, Shunk, and the Tariff of 1842.
The Tariff was as much a part of the tick
et voted, as if it had been printed on it,
and but for that, the then candidates,
whose names were thus connected with
it, would now be in the obscurity of pri
It was by this trickery that the inte
rests of Pennsylvania were committed
to the custody of men whose subsequent
conduct proves them unworthy of pub

was the President whom she elected ! !

tacitly approves the deed ! In the opin

representatives of the people of a great
Commonwealth,whose property has been
placed in imminent peril, by this unpar

denounce it in the plainest terms, that
the nation may understand that Penn
sylvania has never consented by any
vote she has ever given, to surrender or
compromise her principles, in the great
question of protection to American in
dustry. Your committee, therefore, re
commend the adoption of the following
resolutions, viz t

THE preceding figure is given to rep
resent the insensible perspiration.—
It is the great Evacuation for the impu
rities of the body. It will be noticed
that a thick cloudy mist issues from all
parts of the surface, which indicates
that the perspiration flows uninterrupt
edly when in health, but ceases when
we are sick. Life cannot be sustained
without it. It is thrown off from the
blood and other juices of the body, and
disposes by this means of nearly all the
impurities, within us. The language of
scripture, " in the blood is the
If it ever becomes impure it may be
traded_ directly to the stoppage of the
" insensible perspiration," Thus we
see all that is necessary when the blood
is stagrutht Or Infected, is to open the
pores and it relieves itself from all im
purity instantly. Its otvn heat and vi
tality are sufficient, without one particle
of medicine, except to open the pores
upon the surface. Thus we see the folly
of taking so much internal remedies.—
All practitioners, however, direct their
efforts to restore the insensible perspira
tion. The Thompsonian, for instance,
steams ; the Hydropathist shrouds in
wet blankets ; the Homoeopathist deals
out infintissimals ; the Ailopathist bleeds
and doses us with mercury, and the
blustering Quack gorges us with pills.
I have had physicians, learned in the
profession, I have had ministers of the
Gospel, Judges of the Bench, Aldermen
and Lawyers, gentlemen of the highest
erudition, and multitudes of the poor,
use it in every variety of way, and there
has been but one voice—one united,
universal voice—saying, " M'Allister
your Ointment is good."
CONSUMPTION.—It can hardly be cred
ited that a salve can have any effect
upon the lungs, seated as they are with
in the system. But if placed upon the
chest, it penetrates directly to the lungs,
separates the poisonous particles that
are consuming them, and expels them
from the system. I need not say that
it is curing persons of Consumption con
tinually, although we are told that it is
foolishness. I care not what is said, so
long as I can cure several thousand per
HEADACHE.—The salve has cured per
sons of the Headache of it year's stand
ing, and who had it regularly every week,
so that vomiting often took place.
Deafness and Ear ache are helped
with like success.
COLD FEET.—Consumption, Liver Com
plaint, pains in the Side or Chest, falling
off the hair, one or the other, always
accompanies cold feet. It is a sure sign
of disease in the system to have cold

BURNS.-It is the best thing in the
world for Burns, (Read the directions
around the box.)
Pimples on the face, Masculine Skin,
Gross Surface.—When there is grossness
or dull repulsive surface, it begins to
soften until the skin becomes as smooth
and delicate as a child's.
WORMS.—If parents knew how fatal
most medicines were to children taken
inwardly, they would be slow to resort
to them. Especially mercurial lozen
ges,' called medicated lozenges,' ver
mifuges," pills,' &c. The truth is, no
one can tell, invariably, when worms
are present. Now let me say to parents,
that this salve will always tell if a child
has worms. It will drive every vestige
of them away. (Ready the directions
around the box.) There is probably no
medicine on the faCe of the earth at
once so sure and so safe in the expul
sion of worms.
OLD SORES.—That some sores are an
outlet to the impurities of the system,
is because they cannot pass off through
the natural channels of the insensible
Perspiration. If such sores are healed
up, the impurities must have some other
outlet, or it will endanger life. This

FEvEas.—ln all cases of fever, the
difficulty lies in the pores being locked
up so that the heat and perspiration can
not pass off. if the least moisture could
be started, the crisis has passed and the
danger is over. The all-healing oint-
went will in all eases of fevers almost
instantly unlock the akin and brings
forth the perspiration.
We have cured cases of Scald Head that
defied every thing known, as well as the
ability of fifteen or twenty doctors.—
One man told us he had spent $5OO on
his children without any benefit, when a
few boxes of the ointment cured them.

ment will always keep corns from grow

with them if they will use it.
As a family medicine, no man can
measure its value.

SPRINGFIELD, Ky., May 14, 1845.
✓lfessrs. Sanford 4- Park—Gents :—I
take this opportunity of informing you
of a most remarkable cure performed
upon me by the use of Dr. Wistar's
Balsam of Wild Cherry.
In the year of 1840, I was taken with
an inflammation of the bowels, which I
labored under for six weeks, when I gra
dually recovered. In the fall of 1841, I
was attacked with a severe cold, which
seated on my lungs ; and for the wek
of three years I was confined to my bed.
I tried all kinds of medieines, and every
variety of Medical aid, without benefit ;
and thus I wearied along until the win•
ter of 1844, when I heard of "Wistar's
Balsam of Wild Cherry."
My friends persuaded me to give it si
trial, though I had given up all hopes of
recovery, and had prepared myself for
the change of another world. Through
their solicitations I was induced to make
use of the genuine W istar's Balsam of
Wild Cherry. The effect was truly as
tonishing. After five years' otfliction,
pain and suffering, and after having
spent four or five hundred dollars to no
purpose, and the best and most respect•
able physicians had proved unavailing,
I was soon restored to entire health by
the blessing of God and the use of Dr.
Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry.
I am now enjoying good health, and
such is my altered appearance that I
am no longer known when I meet my
I have gained rapidly in weight, and
my flesh is firm and solid. I can now
eat as much as any person, and my food
seems to agree with me. I have eaten
more during the last six months than I
had eaten in five years before. •
Considering my cure almost a mira
cle, I deem it necessary for the good of
the afflicted, and a duty I owe to the
proprietors and my fellow men (who
