    Speech of A. K. Cornyn, Esq.
Resolutions of instructions to our Senators
and Representatives in Congress on the subject
of flogging in the Navy, having been offered in
the lower branch of our State Legislature some
time since, came up in order on the 11th inst.,
and were opposed by Jas. M. Porter, principal.
ly on the ground that the Legislature has no right
to interfere in National Legislation.
On the following day Mr. Cornyn made a
speech in opposition to the views expressed by
Mr. Porter, a report of which we clip from the
Pa. Telegraph.
Mr. CORNYN said
It is, Mr. Speaker, with great reluctance, in
deed, that I venture to join issue with the dis
tinguished gentleman from Northampton (Mr.
PORTER.) In any controversy I may have With
that gentleman on this floor, I must necessarily
suffer—and if I consulted my own feelings I
would remain silent. But, Sir, I did not come
here, I was not sent here to consult my own
fears and inclinations, and to shrink from the
discharge of any responsibility justly devolving
tan me.
The question before the House is an import
ant one, as I view it, in itself considered; but
the views taken and arguments urged by the
gentleman from Northampton have invested it
With additional importance. The practice of
instructing our Senators and requesting our Rep
resentatives in Congress, is not a new one; it
had its origin with the formation of the Govern
ment, and in no State has it been more repeated
ly resorted to than in Pennsylvania. Indeed,
the right to do so has scarcely ever been question.
ed in this Commonwealth. True, there may
have been time, and occasions when there were
doubts as to its expediency or propriety; but
the right to do so has been admitted.
And why should it not be 1 The gentleman
says the National Legislature legislate for the
Union—for the Nation, flint being their peculiar
'province; while the State Legislatures are con
fined within the limitb of their respective States.
Grant it, sir, that we have no right to legislate
Inc the Union, for it would be idle as well as ab
surd to pretend that we had. Bdt the National
Legislature are bound to legislate for us. We
are part and parcel of the Union, and therefore
deeply interested in their action. And if it is
for us they legislate—if we are either elevated
or depressed by their action, why shall we not
be permitted to make known to them our views
feelings and inclinations in regard to all mea
sures that we deem of importance to the State ?
Has it come to this, that the National Legisla
ture are so far removed above the people,
beyond the State Legislatures, that we date
not respectfully address them, and make known
our wants and wishes 1 Upon " what meats do
this Congress feed that they have grown so
great 1" No, sir; we have a right to talk to
them, and there is a propriety in the exercise
of the right. And it is a right which I hope
will neither be relinquished nor abandoned
while we continue so deeply interested in the
action of the National Government. We speak
for the people of this great Commonwealth; we
are their accredited, organized and acknowledg
ed agents; we are directly from them, and are
presumed to reflect their will. In this country,
thank Heaven, all power is entrusted to the peo
ple. They have all power to make and unmake,
as to them seemeth best. They are more mu-
Mp3tent than a British Parliament, and I rejoice
that it is so. Would to God it were SO in every
land and nation of the eat th ! Then the eye of
the patriot would not rest, and sicken as it rests
on those dart and dismal spots 'there cruelty
and oppression hold absolute dominion. Hunga
ry—noble, but devoted Hungary—would not lie
prostrate to-day, with "her life's-blood ebbing
fast away," and the heavy beet of a remorse
less oppressor on her neck. The immortal
Kossuth and the intrepid Bern would not be
houseless and homeless wanderers in a foreign
land; and Italy—around whose painfully ,nter
eating history still linger classic but melanchol
ly recollections—would not 'at this moment lie,
bound hand and foot, in the iron fetters which
despotism has forged upon her. No, sir; it is
because the people in those countries have rtn
power, that their rights are thus disregarded,
and their liberties and privileges overthrown.
But in this land it is not so ; the people are the
sovereigns, and they can enforce obedience to
their will at pleasure. And if the people have
the power, and we are their appointed agents to
act and speak for them, why shall we not do
so 1 The right of instruction arm the duty of
obedience was an early and a favorite doctrine
of the Democratic party, and its abandonment
at this time is but another of the many eviden
ces going to show most conclusively, that the
pr.ent Democratic party possesses but the
name, while the Whig party are devoted to its
p r p . . _
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
is interested and deeply interested in
the resolutions of the gentleman from
Centre, (Mr. MEEK.) If this flogging
in the Navy be a relic of barbarism, at
war with humanity, and a deep and dam
ning shame to a free people, does not
part at least of the infamy and disgrace
rest on Pennsylvania! Must she not
bear her portion of that load of sin and
guilt 1 And it is a disgrace, sir, as well
as a burning shame to the Government
tolerating it. What, sir! an American
citizen ! a prouder title than that of a
Romon citizen in her palmiest days, to
be cowhided like a forgiving and forget
ting dog! his spirit broken, his pride
subdued, and his manly Independence
gone ! For what, sir, can more effectu
ally wound the spirit, chafe the soul,
and destroy all self-respect, than the in
fliction of the odious punishmennt in
question 7 And shall we not be permit
ted, as freemen, to manifest our deep
abhotrence for it, and to ask, respectful
ly, our Senators and Representatives in
Congress to use their influence in wi
ping it front the statute book 7 If they
will not hear us; if they turn a deaf ear
to our entreaties, we at lenst have done
our duty. Pennsylvania has spoken
through her State Legislature, and has
placed herself on the record against It.
Her conscience will be clear, her fair
fame unsullied.
But, sir, if there ever was a time in
the history of this country when it was
peculiarly appropriate that the State
Legislatures should speak, and speak in
no measured terms, especially the free
States, this is the time. Not that the
Legislature of Pennsylvania should ar
rogate to itself powers not delegated to
It and not possessed by it, but that it
should express its views fully and fear
lessly in relation to the great questions
in which the State is interested. In do
ing this it cannot be said that she is en- 1
crouching on the rights of Congress, or
travelling beyond her jurisdiction. The
gentleman from Northampton contends
that the powers of the National, as well
as the State Governments, are clearly
defined, and that neither should attempt
to encroach on the rights of the other.
This I do not intend to question ner do
I undertake to say that the Legislature
of Penns,Wean has power to legislate
beyond the limits of the State ; but I do
undertake fa say, that as a constituent
part of this Union, she may express her
views, Make known her wishes to Con
gress, without being chargeable with any
infringment on the rights of the Nation
al Government.
The gentleman further Urges that we
were sent here for the prpose of pas
sing such laws as the wants and inter
ests of the people of the State require,
and that in undertaking anything for
eig'n tO this purpose c we undertake the
performance of that with Which we were
not intrusted. This argument{ if it
proteS anything, proves too eituch. ft
would forbid the introduction and pas
sage of the resolutions the gentleman
himself offered a few days since, moving
an adjournment of the House in/Medi
ately after the rending of the Journal, in
honor of the Bth of January—the day
rendered memorable by the brilliant vic
tory gained by Gen. Jackson over the
British forces on the plains of New Or
leans ; and would also forbid the esual
tribute of respect paid to the birth-day.
of Washington. It will be therefore read
ily seen, that this view of the case is
I have already said the time is appro
priate, not for abandoning or relinquish
ing this right, but for its free and full
exercise. The South, in their Legisla
tures, are now speaking to their mem
bersof Congress, requesting and instruc
ting them on the must important and vi
tal questions that now agitate and threat
en the union of these States. They are
sustaining and encouraging their mem
bers of Congress in their hostility to a
fair system of American Protection—
that measure in which the people of
this Commonwealth are deeply and vi
tally interested. Take from us Protec
tion to American industry, as has been
done, and you rob this State of her
greatness; you crush her power and her
strength, and prevent her from disclo
sing her vast and untold resources, The
present policy, and the one sought to be
fastened upon us, is fatal to American
labor, placing the freemen of this coun
try on an equality with the serfs and pan•
pers of Europe. It is a policy which,
if persisted in, will close our mines of
wealth, silence the hammer of every
forge ; extinguish the fire of every fur
nace ; and thereby throw out of employ
ment thousands of honest laborers, and'
rob their suffering families of the means
of subsistence. And arc we to sit tame
ly by and send up no voice, long and
deep and loud, against this destructive
measurel Are our rights to be invaded,
our interests destroyed by the action of
the National Legislature, and we not be
permitted to protest against it 1 Can
that doctrine be correct which teaches
silence and submission under such cir
cumstances 1 Must the intended vic
tim, at whose life is aimed a deadly blow,
make no effbrt to avert it 1 and dare it
not resist With unflinching firmness the
Bands of its destroyer 1
But that is not all, sir. The South
are, at this time, in their State Legisla
tures urging upon Congress the proprie
ty of extending and perpetuating the dark
and infamons curse of Slavery over ter
ritory now free. This question is, per-'
haps of all questions, the most impor
tant nt this time, and one in which the
people ought to feel the deepest and'
most lively interest. The issue between
Freedom and Slavery has been made up ;
the contest has commenced, and it is im
possible either to avoid or evade it.—
The free States must take their stand
either for it, or against it. There is no
middle ground to occupy, Nothing is
now left but base submission on the one
hand, or noble resistance on the other.
And shall Pennsylvania shrink from the
avowal of her sentiments, and yield her
conscientious conviction of duty 1 Will
it do to set up a doctrine here which will
be to her as an imperious interdict to
her interference,
and prevent her from
exercising upon Congress, in the settle
ment of this question, that Influence to
which her high position entitles her 1
Shall tongues be mute when deeds are wrought,
'Which well might sharae extremest Hell?
Shall freemen lock the indignant thought
Shall pity's bosom cease to swell 1

Omo.—Dates from Columbus down to
the Sth inst., show that confusion still
prevails in the Senate. Mr. Swift read
a speech and closed with a resolution to
remove Mr. Blake from the Speaker's
chair. The debate which lasted all day,
consisted of personalities. Charges of
falsehood were made and retorted, and
the vocabulary of billingsgate almost en
tirely exhausted. The House adjourned
without transacting any business.

Terrible Tragedy hi New Jersey.
Xurder of a husband and IV:fel—We
learn from the Patterson (N.-J..) Char
dint, extra,that that comMtmity has been
throWn into great elcitement in conse
quence of the murder, on Monday night,
of two persons, residing three miles from
Patterson. The victims are John S.
Van Winkle and his wife, an aged coup
le and long residents of the country.—
The atrociens deed Was accomplished, as
there appears no doubt, by one John'
Johnson, a laboring farmer, The Guar- ' I
dan says:
The murderer, some two or three'
years since worked for his victim as a 1
farmer, and at the time was employed
by some of his neighbors in the same
capacity. It would seem that Johnson
effected an entrance into the house ,
through an upper window, by means of
a ladder, and descending to the bed room
of his victim below, accomplishing his
Murderous purpose by first attacking the
wife, who slept in front, then the bus-!
band, and again the wife.
The second attack appears to have
immediately deprived the wife of life;
the husband is still living, but his death
ie momentarily expected by the atten•
ding physicians ; such is the extent of
his wounds. The chief instrument used
appears to have been a knife, though the
husband bears the marks of a hatchet.—
Each received several stabs in different
parts of the body, including the abdomen
and the sight which the bodies presen
ted when discotered was a molt har
rowing one, the bowels of the husband
especially protruding and lying by his
side. The floor and bed were saturated
with blood, as may be supposed from the
nature and number of the wounds.
A boy only slept in the same dwel
ling.—Aroused by the noise in the room
below, and ascertaining on descending
and softly opening the door, the butch
ery going on within, he silently left the
house and alarmed the neighbors, but
the bloody murderer made his escape be
fore they arrived. The fresh snow, how
ever, enabled his pursuers to track him,
who soon succeded in finding and arres
ting him. He had in his possession
some of the clothes of Mr. V. W., and
bore about him unmistakable marks of
guilt. He is now in our jail.
His object was doubtless money,
(which however, he seems not to have
obtained,) as Mr. V. W., is known to
possess great wealth, probably amoun
ting to $lOO,OOO, though a plain unos
tentatious farmer. It is gratifying that
I the inhuman wretch has been arrested,
but the punishment which is sure to
await him cannot atone for the deed it
self. It Cannot restore the harmless wife
to life, nor save the husband from a spee
dy death. It is proper to say, that
Johnson has borne a good character
when sober, but when drunk, he is little
better than a trirtdMan, as we are infor
med by those who have long known him.
Election Day at Sacremento City.
The California correspondent of the Tribune
tells the following story
To-d a y is election day, and the polls have
just closed. All good old customs have been
transferred to this State, and accordingly we
had rain for twenty-four hours. This digging,
nevertheless turned out 105 votes, dll of which
were " for the Constitution." As there are
two or three candidates for State offices in the
place, the drumming up of Vetere gave one a
fresh reminiscence of home. The choosing of
candidates from lists, nearly all of whom were
entirely unknown, was very amusing. Names,
in many instances were made to stand for prin
ciples; accordingly a Mr. Fair got many votes.
One of the candidates, who had been on the riv
er a few days previous, wearing a high crown
ed silk hat, with narrow brim, lost about twen
ty votes on that account. Seine went no furth
er then to vote for those they actually knew.
One took the opposite extreme, justified him
self in this wise :—" When I left home," said
he, " I was determined to go it blind. I went
It blind to California. and I'm not going to stop
now. I voted for the Constitution, and I have
never seen the Constitution. I voted for all
the candidates, and I dont know a d—ned one
of them. Pm going it blind all through, I am."
The Californians and resident Mexicans who
are entitled to vote, were in high spirits, on ex
ercising the privilege for the first time in their
lives. It made no difference what the ticket
was; the fact of their having voted very much
increased their self importance, for to-day at
