Would he prove himself superior to the
feelings of humanity in disregarding
what influences all of us Many a man
air, has passed the merid ian of his life,
'and been regarded by his fellow-citizens
as a high-minded and honorable gentle
man, and yet he has not reached its
close, without giving painful and lamen
table evidence of his weakness, if not
of his guilt. And why 'I Simply be
cause he has been placed in circumstan
ces where he had to meet temptations
which be had not been accustomed to--
temptations which were too strong, ton
powerful to be resisted, and he fell as
many a man has fallen.
These are some of the objections to
the electiive principle which, together
with many others, has great influence
in regulating my conduct on this ques
tion. Again, sir, it is difficult to tell
where this thing is going to end ;. what
the next proposition will be, we know
not ; and perhaps it will be to elect the
jurors. And if 1 had a voice, sir, that
could reach the ear of every voter in
this Commonwealth, I would call upon
them long, and loud, and earnest, by
all their regard for the wisdom of their
fathers, the Institution of their country,
their own prosperity, public and private,
to resist firmly this mad system of
change which threatens the subversion
of all their rights. So deep are my con
victions, so fearul my apprehensions in
regard to this aggressive policy that
stops at nothing.
I voted against this resolution at the
last session, for the reasons I have al
reudy enumerated. My course on the
question, together with my vote, was
well known. I met the people whom 1
had the honor to represent in the ses
sion of 1849, and a generous and intel
ligent constituency returned me here by
an increased vote. During my election
campaign, I mingled and mixed freely
with the people, desirous of knowing
what their views were with regard to this
measure. 1 met them at various points
in my county, never concealing my
hostility to this amendment; but on
the other hand openly and fearlessly
avowing it, and from all 1 could learn,
from ail the information I could obtain,
it is my firm conviction that a major
ity of my constituents are opposed to
it—that portion of them, too, sir, whose
business is not to play the sycophant or
the demagogue—men who take a deep
interest in the institutions of their fath
ers, who are unwilling that every mon
ument of their wisdom, every evidence
of their patriotism, shall be stricken
down as unworthy of their regard or
I have now done, sir, and whatever
be the result, one thing is certain : in
this matter I have met the approbation.
of my conscience. I have vindicated
my self-respect and um willing to abide
the judgment of a just constituency.
The Washington correspondent of the
Philadelphia Ledger, in a letter under
date of February 10, throws out the fol
lowing important suggestion :
" There is only one fact which, when
it shall come to the general knowledge
of the people, may change the position
of the slavery question. It is this, that
the people of California, south of 36 deg.
30 min., are even more attached to the
constitution which inhibited slavery
than those north of that line. lam in
formed that, including the population of
Monterey, (which is situated a little
north of 36 deg. 30 min.,) there were not
in all that portion of California down to
Mexico, more than TWENTY•ONE persons
opposed to the constitution! This fact,
which has not been known here, or at
least not in an authentic form, has al
ready alarmed certain southern Sena
tors ; and the question is now debated
whether the South had better admit Cal
ifornia with her present limits, or divide
her in two, and in a little while have
another free State knocking at the door
of the Union for admission. It is not
at alt unlikely, then, that in a short time'
the North and South may change grounds
on that subject—the North going for a
division of a State of more than or about
two hundred thousands square miles,
and the South insisting that it shall come
in as a State one and indivisible."
FATAL ACCIDENT.—The body of Mr.
Benj. Shallenberger, Sr., who resided
about a mile and a half above this place,
was found on Friday morning last, on
the bank of the Canal, bet een the
warehouse of Wm. Patterson and the
bridge. He was undoudtedly passing
the bridge during the previous evening
and in the darkness stumbled over the
stone wall, which is not high enough to
afford sufficient protection to passers by,
and fell a distance of about twelve feet,
striking his head against some stones
at the bottom, and cutting a deep gash
in the front part of his head, which
probably killed him instantly, as he was
found in that position in the morning.—
An inquest was held on the body by Ca
leb Parker, Esq., and a verdict rendered
according to the above facts. He was
conveyed to the house of his son-in-law,
Mr. John Wright, in this borough. He
bad recently sold out his personal prop
erty with the view of emigrating to the
western country, where he had two sons,
hut an untimely death has terminated
his earthly career.-3filifineown Regis.

Mr. Johnson was rescued from death's door
by the use of Schneck's Pu'manic Syrup—hav

witnessed by several of the moat respectable
citizens of this state, whose names are append
ed to his certificate. Read I Read ! and be con
vinced that Schneck's Pulmonary Syrup is the
only certain cure for Consumption.
Bristol, Burks County, Pa.
Da. J. H. SCIINECIC, —DearStr,—l am induced
from a sense of justice towards you, an well as
duty to the public, to make known one of the
most hopeless and extraordinary cures, in my
own person, that you hove ever had the pleasure
to record. Indeed, I regret my inability to por
tray, in truthful colors, my consuming disease,
and the remarkable chance which Schneck's
Pulmonary Syrup effected in so short a time.
I was taken some time pravious to December
1848, with a heavy cold, producing incessant
coughing, accompanied with acute pain in the
right side, pains in the back, under the right
shoulder, having heavy night sweats, high fevers
&c., which made me so nervous and restless as
to produce utter prostration. All thesenfilictions
increased with such violence, that on the 4th of
January last I sent for my family physician. He
attended me faithfully, and prescribed every thing
that medical skill could suggest, but without ef
fect. I found myself gradually growing worse,
and my hopes of recovery lessening as my dis
ease increased. My cough became distressing ;
my pains severe; and, extremely debilitated, I
lost all ambition in life, and gave up to a melon
choly depression. My physician examined me, l
and informed me I hail an obsess on the upper
part of my liver and lower pert of one of my lungs.
Notwithstanding all this skill, I grew worse, but
with that tenacity with which we all cling to life,
I concluded to leave nothing undone, and called
in a consulting physician, who fully concurred
with my own, and pronounced my case an ex
tremely critical one. He thought I was in im
minent danger--saying my disease "was one thn
is seldom if ever cured." All this time I was en
daring sufferings that mode life burdensome ; ex
periencing great pain in coughing ; expectora
Ling from a pint to a quart of nnuceous matter
every 24 hours, and gradually sinking under the
weakning progress of my disease. A t this stage
ref my illness, my friends in Bristol suggested
the use of Schneck's Pulmome Syrup, but know
ing the many expedients resorted to for the pur
pose of draining money from the afflicted, I hes
itated. My friends, however, insisting, I was
prevailed upon to try its virtues. I commenced
taking the Syrup about the first of March, and
used several bottles before I had any confidence
in it. I then began to experience a change for
the better, and continued it till I had consumed
ten bottles, when I was so far relieved as to be
able to visit Dr. Schneck in Philadelphia. He I
examined me, and pronounced my right !ung af
fected, but in a healing con.lition. He recom
mended the further use of the Syrup, which I
continued till I consumed 15 bottles, and found
myself once more restored to health. I will fur
ther add, that the consulting physician, seeing the
action of the medicine, fully approved its use.
To give the reader some idea of the severity
of my case, and the rapid cure affected by the
Syrop,l will state that my usual weight in
health was 177 pounds, which was finally re
duced by my sufferings to but 121 pounds. Yet,
on the first of this month, (September,) I weigh
ed 174 pounds, thus gaining in a few months 53
pounds, and within three pounds of my heaviest
weight. It is not in my posse, to convey, in the
short space of this certificate, the convincin g
proofs of my remarkable cure, or the particulars
of the agonizing afflictions through which I have
passed ; but to those who will take the trouble to
call on me, at Bristol, opposite Pratt's hotel, I
shall take pleasure in detailing Every particular.
In conclusion, I deem it my duty to urge upon
every person who may have the premonitory
symptoms of this fatal disease, not to delay one
hour, but to call upon Dr Schneck immediately.
His skill in the treatment of this complaint, and
prompt detection of diseased parts of the lungs
by means of his Stethescope, added to my own
miraculous cure, fully satisfiesme, that had I ear
lier submitted myself to his care, I should have
escaped much suffering; but restrained by doubts
and suspicion, which make us all naturally skep
tical in regard to the virtues of a medicine when
first introduced, I resisted the importunities of
my friends till almost too Isle ; and yielded only
as a last resort, resolved to " kill or cure." To
those afflicted as I have been, again let me say,
hesitate no longer, my own case is presented to
you as convincing evidence, that when all else
fails your last hope is in Dr, Schneck'sPulmonic
Syrup. I have also for the satisfaction of those
who may be strangers to me, appended tdthis err
tificate the names of gentlemen well known ist
the walks of public arid private life, and whose
standing in society admits of no cavil or doubt in
regard to their testimony.
CHARLES G. JOHNSON.
We the undersigned, residents of Bristol and
vtcinity, are well acquainted with Mr. Johnson,
and know him to have been afflicted as he states
above. We also know that he used Schneck's
Pulmonic Syrup, and have every reason to be
lieve, that to this medicine he owes his preserva
tion from a premature grave. The known in
tegrity and position in society of Mr. Johnson
however is a sufficient guarantee to the public of
the truth of this statement.
