Election in Washington.
An exciting election came off in Washing.
ton City on Monday of last week. Mr. Maury,
the present Mayor, was elected by over 800 ma•
jority last year, and a popular officer; was re•
nominated as the Democratic candidate. The
"Know Nothings" united on John T. Towers.
The election was warmly contested, and party
lines were entirely lost sight of—Whigs voting
for Maury, and Democrats for Towers. The
result is the election of Towers by 430 majority.
The Whigs elected nearly ali the members of
the City Councels. The election of Towers
was celebrated by firing of cannon, ringing of
bells, bonfires &c.

greatest chaStisemints which ever befel the de.

were swept away before the torrent of outgnsh

adversaries have been discomfitted—not merely
beaten, but most ignominiously routed! Ward
after want, which for years past have been in
ehjeek anti slavish subservience to the vital
spirit of party, have rolled in tremendous ma
jorities for the popular Amerian creed.
We are aware that a number of citizens who
have heretofore supported the Locofoco ticket,
voted against it at this time, and the circum
stance proves that adherence to political organ
ization, though enforced by the most rigorous
discipline, is not potent enough to overcome
popular virtue. In this respect, the result of

righteous verdict against the Nebraska bill.
It indicates, in a marked and unmistakable
manner, the sentiment of that community'res

in relation to the Nebraska bill.
The issue was distinctly and generally-made
at the polls in every ward and precinct, and the
voice of the majority iy now uttered in accents
of indignant denunciation against the Admin
istration and its adherents. The sentence of
the people has gone forth from the sacred spot
where the national liberties had their birth, and
and its reverberating echoes will be herd and
felt in every section of the Republic.
Philadelphia has spoken in tones of thunder,
her rebuke of the passage of the Nebraska bill,

States, and we doubt not it will impart hope
and joy to the true friends of the Union, whet•

liness to denounce the Nebraska iniquity.—
Among these are the Bradford Reporter, in
Wilmot's District; the Susquehanna Democrat,
the organ of Mr. Chace, Speaker of the last
House; the Berks county Press, Montgomery
Ledger, and Westchester Republican. The
Montgomery Ledger in noticing the statement
of the Washington Union that fidelity to the
Nebraska bill will hereafter be essential to De
mocracic orthodoxy, replies:
"If no votes are desired other than such as
endorse the Nebraska fraud, it will be left in a
glorious minority in Pennsylvania. Just bear
that in mind, and be careful how you apply the
The Berks County .Press is equally emphatic
in its denunciation of the bill. The Press is
one of the recognized organs in "Old Mother
Berko,' and in noticing the passage of the bill,
"Thus, by Legislative legerdemain, and a
violation of the resolutions contained in the
Democratic platform, which declared the Com
promise of 1850, a full and final settlement of

Compromise effected. Such an unholy con.
summation as this act, on the part of the ma

compact existing between the States adopted

of blackening infamy, threatening the eery ex

A Chance for Speculators,
The annexed card we find in the advertising
columns of the York Republican. The editor
of the Republican says "the lady is all that she
represents herself to be. She is a prize worth
the asking for, and whichever of our gay young
men shall be fortunate enough to get her hand
will never have cause to regret it. There is
no joke whatever in this. It will be as well,
however, to state that she wants a "nice young
man and no humbug."
A YOUNG LADY, eighteen years of age,

method of seeking for one whom she will pro.

disposition, a gentleman between the ages of
22 and 30, of respectable parentage, and with
a business sufficient to justify him in taking the

NOT TO BE BOUGUT.—The Providedce
brrne says: "Shortly before the passage of the
Nebraska bill through the Senate, President
Pieree sought an interview with Gov. Allen,
°Mc United States &Mate, and in the course
of conversation, began to question him with a
view of obtaining his support for that measure.
"Sir," was Mr. Allen's characteristic retort, "1

nothing to expect; and if you expect to buy
me, you haven't money enough in Washington

Mr. Stephen A. Douglas has been spending
some days in our loin—perhaps is still here—
where he has made ono speech to Mr. John
Cochrane in an apartment of his tavern, and
another in the street to the Empire Club and
such adjuncts as could be drummed up by an
hour's industrious cannonading in the Park
and drumminF through Broadway. We wish
more of our citizens could have been induced
to guage the intellectual caliber of the "Little
Giant" who has stirred up all this row about
Nebraska. The first shock of amazement must
have bees severe, but the subsequent reflec
tions would have been salutary. Do consider
a few germs from his Tuesday evening speech:
"The simple principle involved in that [Ne
braska) question was, that the people of the
Territories of the United States shall be allow
ed to decide for themselves what kind of laws
they would have. * * * * It is no ex
cuse to say that the people, if left to them
selves, will pass bad laws; if they do, the con
sequences of those bad laws must fall upon.
their own heads."
That is to say: if A is allowed to beat, sell or
starve B—the consequences of such bad laws
fall not on. defenseless B who is beaten, sold
and starved, but on powerful A who is enabled
to do him the wrong—and so there is no dan
ger that the wrong will not be speedily redres
"Now if the people of the Territories are ca
pable of legislating upon every question invol
ving the well-being of the white man, are they
not also capable of legislating for the negro?—
[Laughter, and cries of 'yes, yes.'] I do not
think it requires any higher intellectual power
to make laws for the negro than for the white
man." [Great cheering.]
Isn't this something to be cheered over 7—
Just think of Bute or North getting up in the
House ofLords of 1775 and saying, '3ly Lords,
"if Parliament is capaple of legislating for En
"glishmen, I think it qualified to legislate for
"Americans as well." How pot-bellied country
squires would have chuckled over and cheered
the suggestion I How Sam. Johnson's tory
ism would have 'spread itself! 'Parliament
"makes good enough laws for us—why not.
"good enough then, for Yankees?" "Why,"
"replies simple Dr. Franklin, because Paths
"Ment represents you, is responsible to you, and
"does not represent, nor is it responsible to,
"the Americans." What Republican can fail
to see the distinction?—But Douglas gloats on
his glimmer of an idea, and returns to it as
something stunning. Let us follow him.
"The Abolitionists tell you that the proper
way is to give the people of the Territories pow.
er to make all the laws for the whites, but none
for the bkwks. Now, I say that we should
maintain and supp ort our principles consistent
ly, and that what i s good enough for whites is
good enough for negroes." [Cheers.]
The lying little villian knows this to be stee
ped in falsehood—knows that no Abolitionist
ever proposed to deprive the People of legisla
tive power over Blacks or Whites. What they
do propose is, that the laws shall be just and
equal to all men as men, and take no account
of their color as a reason for inflicting degrade.
don, injury and wrong upon any class or fac
tion. It is he. Stephen A. Douglas, who is try.
ing to fix matters no that what is good enough
for a part shall /tot be legally accounted good
enough for the residue—so that the power to
make all laws shall be confined to men of one
color, while those of another shall be abused
and oppressed under those laws without redress.
—But we ought not to have wasted so many
words on this miserable creature with his im
pudent, brazen sophistry. Itynders himself
might have uttered as wicked but not ad 'weak
a rigmarole; and we are rather surprised that
lie did not, as if in Tammany, after getting a
touch of its quality, order the Giant to shut up,
and to proceed to make the speech oftho even

M. On the Bth inst. the editor of the Phila.
delphia "News," received the following invita
tion—it refers to a grave subject, certainly, but
as a faithful chronicler, he could do no less than
state what was going on:
"To THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.-YOU are
respectfully invited to attend the funeral of the
Democratic Party, which will take place on
Sunday morning next, at 9 o'clock, from "Mar
ble Hall," Chestnut street above Fourth. The
procession will proceed to the "Kansas Nebras

Stephen Arnold Dong:as."
"P. S.—A subscription will be taken up to
defray the expense of an iron railing, to fence
in the said territory."

the "Salt River" trip in 1852 will induce us to
decline a participation in the proposed ceremo•
nies. Meantime we hope the party engaged in

NVASIIINGTON, June 8, 1854
Mr. Edi/or:—The news from the good "City
of the multiplication table," is as the noise of
the rushing of many waters—perfectly astoun
ding, and to old Whigs, who in years by gone,
when the returns from Southwark were always
made to supply all short-comings in Spring
Garden, Northern Liberties, Kensington, he.,
labored and toiled, and dreamed not of seeing
such a result, truly cheering: But it is not a
11%4/ victory, though it is such a one as Whigs
may well rejoice in. It is the triumph of prin
ciple, of conservatism, of Americanism, and a
rebuke to the had faith to which the Nebraska
act owes its existence. It is the hand-writing
on the wall, and let the conscience-stricken
tremble at the doom that awaits them.
The Administration and the few friends it
has are completely dumbfounded. The blow
given them here, on Monday, was severely felt,
but followed up, as it has been, by such a stun
ning one as Philadelphia has dealt them, no
wonder they stagger under it, and look anxious.

same kind to fall upon their devoted heads.
Upon the passage of the Nebraska measure,
and for some time previous, while it was being
so vigorously contested in the House, the coun
tenances of people here, as a general thing,
wore an aspect of gloom and despondency; but
that has now cleared away. and given place to
the mile of triumph, and of confidence in
the future. Every one, save those connected
with the Administration, seems to feel assured
that "there is it good time coming."

The Prohibitory Liquor Law Convention.
This body met at Harrisburg, on Wednes.
day, last. A resloution to accept the issue of
a direct vote of the people in October, on the
question of Prohibition, wan adopted. The
opinion prevailed in the Convention that on the
abstract question there would be a large ma
jority in its favor. It was determined not to
nominate candidates for the Gubernatorial
chair, but to publish the replies to the follow
ing queries which had been submitted to the
candidates for the office:
1. Do you believe a law. prohibiting the
manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors.
except for sacramental, medicinal, mechanical
or artistical purposes, to he constitutional? and
would its constitutionality, in your opinion, be
affected by a submission of its repeal to a vote
of the people, provided a majority voted in fa.
nor of the law? _ .
2. In the event of your election, should the
Legislature enact such a law, will it receive
your executive sanction?
The following are the replies which were're
ceived from Gov. Bigler and Judge Pollock:
GOVERNOR BIGLER'S LETTER,
HARRISBURG, June 6, 1854.
GENTLEMEN; I have been honored by the re
ceipt of your communicatton of tho 18th ult.,
propounding to me certaiq questions touching
the subject of a Prohibitory Liquor Law.
To your first inquiry I reply that the Su
preme Court of the State have repeatedly held,
and I can concur in the doctrine, that the Le
gislature can excereise all law making power
not expressly forbidden by the State or Feder-
Constitution. Under this construction, I be-
Were the Legislature have authority to control
the manufacture and sale of spirituous liquors,
but in the use of that power, it, must be obvi
ous that a law might be passed, which, in its
details, would be a manifest violation of the
Constitution, and hence the impossibility of
answering your question distinctly, without
seeing the exact terms of the proposed law.
As to the second point in the inquiry, it
must be very clear that a law, constitutional in
itself, would' not be rendered otherwiie by al
lowing the people to decide, by vote whether
the Legislature should repeal it or not, no mat
ter what that vote. might be.
To your second inquiry. I answer, that I sin
cerely-deplore the evils of intetnperance, and
am now willing, as I always have been, to
sanction any proper measure to mitigate, and,
if possible, entirely remove the vice; but I can
not pledge myself to sanction a law the details
of which I have not seen. The terms of the
constitution and oath of office would seem to
forbid this course on the part of an Executive.
He should be free to judge of the constitution.

JUDGE POLLOCK'S LETTER.
MILTON, May 30th, 1834,
Gentlemen—Your communication in refer
once to a prohibitory law has been received,
and in reply, I say that the constitutionality of
a prohibitory law, similar in its essential fee-
I tures to the one referred to in your interroga
tories, having received a judicial determination
by the highest Courts of several of our sister
States, and the principle having been reco,gni.
zed by the Supreme Court of the United States,
I em relieved from the responsibility of a first
decision. These Courts having affirmed the
constitutionality of a prohibitory law, and be
ing of the highest authority, I believe, upon
principle and authority, such a law to. my
stitutional; and its constitutionality, in y
woala not be affected by a submission of
its repeal tea vote of the people.
Every measure of moral or political reform,
sanctioned by the representatives nf the people,
within the limits of the Constitution, should
receive my official sanction. The expediency
and propriety of such laws are for else people,
through their representatives; and their will,
constitutionally declared, should be respected
by the Executive. If the people demand, and
their representatives enact such a law, their
will should not be resisted by the exercise of
the veto power—a power purely conservative,
and only to be excereised in canes clearly un
constittition al, or exhibiting indubitable evi
dence of hasty, injurious and imperfect legisla
tion. Suds being my views of official duty in
the premises, should the legislature, the oonsti.
tutional exponents of the popular Will, enact
such a law, it would, in the event of my elec
tion, receive the executive sanction.

Why are so many Ships Lost?
During a period of eighteen months, en-ling
in September, 1853, one hundred and three
ships and barques, one hundred and forty-four
brigs, and three hundred and twenty-seven
schooners and sloops, were Jost at sea; fifty
vessels, which had previously sailed, were never
afterwards heard from; eight hundred and thir
ty-eight put into port in distress, and one hun
dred and two wrecks were passed—making a
total loss, for the period given, as calculated by
a writer in the Boston Atlas, of one vessel lost
every eleven hours; one stranded every forty
four hours; one abandoned every seventy-fire
hours, and one sailing and never afterwards
heard from, every ton days. Such a statement
as this should awaken earnest inquiry concern
ing the causes of these disasters The calcula
tion is almost exclusively confined to American
Shipping. Few can read it unmoved, and yet
if the loss of life, ns well as of property, had
been included, and if the dreadful sufferings of
the dead and the bereaved could be set forth,
the horrors of the picture would be infinitely
increased.—N. Y. Time,

Me, Entrou :—ln the Journal of 3d of May
I notice n communication under the signature
of D., with a view of giving publicity to the
verdict of the second Inquest held on the body
of James Stambaugh. Such a course is not
unprecedented, when a felon lying in fetters
awaiting the just reward of his crimes, it is not
unnatural for his friends to resort to any and
every emergency to exculpate him from the
charge against him; not only in our courts' f
justice, but also public opinion. Such is the
intention in this case; that the person under
arrest for the murder of Sttunbaugh, will stand
non-committed in the eye of the law, as well
as public opinion. Much care has been taken
to secure the intelligenee and regular aid for a
second jury, while the first was composed of as
much intelligence—lacking the regulars; as tho
second, or any other parked for the purpose.—.
Our object is not to controvert the merits of
the two juries or their awards, neither do we
intend to notice the matter further, as the
Court of Oyer and Terminer, (if I am right,)
will determine from the evidence before it, but
to guard public opinion from any false impres

Mr. EDITOR:-It has been a custom for
years past, for a set of rowdies to gather at
what is.called the "Big meetings" of the Dun.
!cards, which are held at their church in Ger

go 4o church for the purpose of disturbing the

in their nefarious course, give a lawyer five
dollars for a 'bit' of advice, for fear they might
ho "put where the dogs won't bark at them."
It is a very dangerous thing for any person to
disturb a religious meeting, be that denomina
tion what it may. This rowdyism has been
borne with for a great many years, (for the rya
son that said society are opposed to Iftwiug;)
but such proceedings cannot be looked upon
moth longer with impunity.

This truly great medicine still goes on, con

powerless victim from the grave. By its pow.
erfully stimulating, penetrating and anodyne
qualities, it restores the use of the limbs which
have been palsied for years; and by its singular
power of reproducing the synovial fluid or joint
water, it cures all diseases of the joints with
surprising rapidity. For rheumatism, and af
fections of the spine and spleen, it has proved
itself a specific; and for affections of the lungs,
liver and kidneys, it is a must valuable and
powerful auxiliary; also, for all diseases of the
glands, scrofula, goitre or swelled neck, etc.,
etc. And indeed for almost any disease where
an external application is required, this medi•
eine stands unparalleled. Sprains, bruises,
cramps, wounds, chilblains, burns, etc. : are
speedily cured by it.

said it was a strain, and some, that it was the
joint water from the knee, and could not be
cured. I tried oil cedar on it, and all the lini•

good than water. I then, by persuasion of my
