Col. Wharton's Speech,
Our t•eaders will find in another column, a
sketch of the remarks of Col. - Wharton, ou the
Cleveland and . Motioning Rail Road bill. The
Harrisburg State Journal .says, in noticing the
speech, that " the Col. is an active and efficient
working Meinlier, and whilst carefully guarding
the interests of his immediate constituency, takes
a prominent part in the consideration and discus
sion of every measure which has a tendency to
Mivence the great Ipterests of the Commonwealth.

the chair, when Cessna called for a division, and
was thus defeated, by a vote of 66 to 64, and Mr.
Plummer took his seat, as tetaporary Chairman.
It was no time to quarrel. The eyes of the Na
tional Administration were on them. All hands
desired to get and keep power there; and the
brming storm blew over.
Convention subsequently organized, per
inammtly, byeleeting Wm. M. Hirst, of Philadel
phia, President, and they went to work in earnest.
In the evening, on the sixth ballot, the Hon.
'fliotaus Fitrsyth, the present Senator, from the
County of Philadelphia, m as nominated for Canal
Commissioner; and wo must say, next to our
friend John S. 'sett, there is no man in their party
that we should rather sue their candidate. We
have known him fur many years, and we arc free
to say, that he is a man of sound, and rugged
common sense, with an active and practical work
ing mind, and of the strictest integrity. A zealous
partizan, it is true ; and like all warm partizans,
may err ; but we believe lie desires to do hit ditty
at till times.
The presentineumbents, Bon. Ephraim Banks,
Auditor General, and Bon. J. P. Brewley, Sur
veyor General, were both re-nominated, the first
liy aeclamation, and the latter on the second bal
lot. They have both been faithful party officers,
and deserved to ho selected for a second time.—
We have had much intercourse with both of them;
nail next to Whigs, would rather do business with
them than with many others of their party.
On the .whole, they have made a ticket that it
will take our best men to beat, unless the elements
of their party arc sadly severed by the quarrels
about the spoils.
We must not neglect, however, to mention that
Yuletide° Best, Esq., of Montour County, who,
with the Whigs, elected himself Speaker three
years ago, appeared us a delegate from Montour
and Columbia Counties, and someiother gentle
man, as a contestant for the seat. The Conven
tion threw them both out, and told those two
wool-dyed Loco Foca counties, that they were not
deserving of a voico in their party council; of
course, they will consider themselves honored by
the distinction of having their representative kick
ed out a Convention.

memorial was presented, praying that freedom of
religions worship he secured to Americans in oth
er countries; which was referred to the Commit
tee on Foreign Relations. Mr. Underwood, from
that Committee, made a report, (which we have
not seen,) accompanied by the following resolu
tions. They speak a proper spirit, and the fact
that such a state of facts exists,in some countries,
as make it necessary to recommend, as "wise and
just," to protect our citizens abroad its the enjoy
ment of their religions privileges, by treaty, seems
to admit that whirls is now strongly denied in
some quarters, that is—that onr citizens are some
times persecuted for their religions opinions. It
is time; we say, that cut government take the'
matter in their own hands.
Resolved, That it would he just and wise, on
the part of the government of the 'United States,
in future treaties with foreign natiods, to secure,
if practicable, to our citizens residing abroad, the
right of worshipping God - freely and openly, ac
cording to the dictates of their own consciences,
by providing that they shall not he disturbed, mo
lested, or annoyed in any manlier, on account of

ces appointed far public worship; nail that they
shall be at liberty to build and maintain places of
worship in convenient situations, interfering. in no
wise with, but respecting the religion and customs
of the country in which' ey reside.
Resolved, Arther, That 'it would be just and
wise, in our future treaties with foreign nations,
to secure to our citizens residingal the rights
to purchase and own burial places ; and to bury
any of OUT citizens dying abroad in such places
ith those religious ceremonies and observances
eemed appropriate by the surviving relatives and
Mends of the deceased.
It is accomplished. The administration
of our governthent has, since our last pub
lication, changed hands. The Whig party,
who for the last four years, under Taylor
and Fillmore, have directed the destinies
of our country, have retired fi'om their dis
tinguished position, and the reins of gov
ernment are now held by the chieftain and
leader of the other great party.
When in other lands, a change so uni
versal, so sudden, and important is produ
ced, the signs of gathering storms, and' thc •
smoking of hidden fires are for months, and
some times, for years, the precursors of the
fearful out break. The midnight meetings
of rebel ruffians, or the bold and stern bear
ing of the oppressed, speak -a language well
understood by the tyrants of the old world.
An occasional riot, or up-rising of the
crushed and down-trodden, tells of the
volcano which will at last belch forth its
burning torrent, and blast them in its wrath.
The time comes, and the u bonded bow"
starts the reaper from the field, the hunter
from the mountain, the chieftain from the
hall, and the spirit of freedom "calls the
strong of heart," and then in the carnage
of civil strife, mid the thunders of the can
non, the roar of the musketry, iu the wild
warfare, when kindred, and classes meet,
and strive for a mad mastery, a change is
made: The history of the world is full of
such changes: They are the convulsions
of a diseased world.
Our National being was the dawning of
that Sun, whose beanie shall ultimately
warm into luxuriant growth, the 4f peace

shall the lion and the lamb lay down.
The rulers, the policy, and the power of ,

only evidence of such a change, is on the
tell-tale-tongue which says, the change is
accomplished. Nearly thirty millions of
people smile and rejoice, oven in such a
change, for with it comes the . assurance,
that the elements of our strength and beau-

Rail Road Accident.
On Thursday night the freight train, to

which passes through town about two hours
before the passenger train, ran down to the
deep-cut this side of Newton Hamilton,
and then the engine gave out, trom home

coming up, which would be up in about
two hours; and two persons started up the
track to stop the train coming down, and

and a half. The last two went up the
road a short distance, and as they had so
long a thile to wait, stepped in to a house
to spend the hour comfortably, without
even the precaution to set their red lamps

do nothing. The passenger train conse

freight train, and a frightful collision was
thus prodced by the most culpable negli
gence,on the part of Railroad agents. Five
or six were killed, and others sadly bruis

hanging done, according to law. •
ANOTHER!—On Saturday, in broad day

and a half miles below town; and we are
told that another train behind ran into

If this' bill is allowed to pass, it will

to the Pennsylvania improvements, and
large sums to the coffers of the Treasury.
My friend from Crawford offers as an
amendment, that all other conipanios be
restricted from building a road froni New
Castle to Pittsburg, and to it, I see no
particular objection. other than that it will
encumber this bill with matter foreign to
it, while of . itself it has sufficient merits of
its own, to insure its success, and ought
not to be loaded down in such a manner,
as may put its safety in jeopardy.
Mr. Speaker, I believe and contend, that
the amendment to the amendment, offered
by my friend from Allegheny (sir Eyster)
shotild be voted down, and that the amend
ment offered by the gentleman from Craw
ford (,Mr. Merriman) should share the
same fate, and then we will have the Cleve
land and Mahoning bill fairly before us,
untrammelled with any matter extraneous
or foreign to its merits.
Now, Mr. Speaker, this debate has ta
ken a wide range on the policy of making
roads and granting charter privileges. The
example of the State of New-York is held
up to view as a terror on.one side, by gen
tlemen wishing to serve their own particu
lar localities; and on the other sympathet
ic feelings of members lest the prospects
and interests and future usefulness of our
Pennsylvania improvements should be
made to suffer.
Sir, it would be amusing to the citizens
of New-York 61 perstie'the leffislative pro
ceedings of this State, and the discussions
wehave relative.to the public improvements.
Hardly a charter is asked for from our le
gislature, but we have New-York
and New-York interests mixed in with the
request and discussion. I am opposed to
the policy that begets such fears. I ani
in favor of granting charters to all compa
nies who are willing to spend their money
and lend their enterprizein developing the
great and hidden resources of our noble
State, and tending to increase her trade
and business. Why should they be restrict
ed in makin-groads, or in any other way,
when the true interest of our citizens will
be thereby benefited.
I am iu favor of increasing tile, facilities
of our main line of improvements to enable
us to compete with our roads, by giving
liberal charters, and thus encourage our
own citizens to expend their means in add
ing to our improvements, increasing the
travel and transportation over our great
State work, and thus inviting our neigh
boring States to visit us with their
business; instead of adopting the miserable
policy of throning embarrasments around
ourselves, and encircling ourselves with
barriers, through which no penetration can
Some seem to think that the enterprize
of our-citizens should be hedged in, lest
they should think proper to travel with
their business through some other State,
whose policy has in this respect been more
liberal than our own.
Mr. Speaker, we hoar no such dicussion
in the New-York Legislature relative to
the Pennsylvania, or New-York policy, '
that we are in the habit of listening to here.
Her policy always has been to incroarm,
rather than depress her energies, and en
courage her citizens to compote with their
rival neighbors. If Pennsylvania builds
a road that will carry 30 miles an hour,
they build one that will carry at the rate
of 40 miles, if we reduce our fares ' they
reduce theirs, because it is the fair, honest
and legitimate way of competing with our
Pennsylvania has the shortest route to
the Great West by many miles, and to se
cure the advantages thus offered, we must
improve our State works, so that we can
travel as fast and carry as cheap as any of
our rivals, and then we can fairly compete
with .them—yes more, we will have hun
dreds to their fifties—and to have our
State works well fed, we must reduce the
tax on our Pennsylvania Central Road, and
thus enable other roads which act as feed
ers to our State works, to thrive and grow
alongside of ours. When we do this we
will have no further occasion to fear the
extontion of branches to every part of the
State, and every point of the compass, and
intersect the works of any State,which may
wound our Commonwealth.

Such facts show clearly that our policy
is 'wrong. All business men will sock the
cheapest, fastest and best route to market,
and who says this is not right?

money and energies in building a road
