We observe that the nomination by
Governor Pollock of our worthy friend
Col A. K. 31cCi.vne, of the Chambersburg
Whig, was unanimously confirmed by the
Senate, on last Wednesday.
This is a selection that will give gener

sure guarantee that the duties of the office
will be faithfully discharged, and the Com
inonwealth protected.

Judging from the slight acquaintance
we have had with him, as well as from
the opinion of sundry persons who have
a good opportunity of knowing, we
are inclined to believe that they will be
well sustained in their arduous enterprise.
May it be so .
Something Newt
Prof. MacLaurin, is said to be an old
and well-known teacher of penmanship in
the city of New York, and has invented
and brought to perfection a system by
which every person, young or old, may
in a few hours practice, learn to write a
free, bold, beautiful and rapid hand-wri
ting—rapid it is said beyond belief. It is
said, a writing book of the teegest size
commonly used in schools, was written
through from beginning to end, in a per
fectly uniform and beautiful hand, like
copper-plate engraving, in two hours, by
a little girl ten years old, after a brief
course of instruction. It is a 'miracle of
science and art.

Interesting and Important Move,
We would call the attention of our rea•
ders to the advertisement of Hoe Ace We
ll-as, Music Publisher and Dealer, of No.
333 f3roadway, to be found in another col
umn of our paper. It will be seen that
the advertiser has made a great reduction
in the prices of music and all kinds of
music merchandise, and thereby brought
upon himself the opposition of the trade,
who have met in convention, and combi
ned to keep up the old rates. The objects
had in view by Mr. WATERS are definite
ly stated in his advertisement, and it is
needless for us to state that he is entitled
to, and will obtain the warmest sympathy
and support. of the American public. His
pianos are the mast celebrated in the Uni
ted States, and comprise an assortment
from ten different manufactories ; and he
sells superior-toned pianos as low as $175.
His music establishment is one of the lar
gest and best stocked in the Union ; and,
for pianos, melodeons, music, musical in
struments, and music merchandise of all
kinds, no better supplies, or at so reasona
ble rates, can be procured, than by calling
upon, or forwarding orders to him.

Abstract of Foreign News.
The Steamship Atlantic reached New York
on Friday, the 9th inst., from Liverpool, bring
ing news front Europe ono week later. The
Queen of Sardinia is dead. Lord John Rus
sell has resigned his post as leader of the min
isterial party in the House of Comm., and
the opinion seemed to prevail that the minis
try must go out. Affairs before Sevastopol are
unchanged. The British arniy is in a wretch.
ed condition trom mismanagement. The Swe
dish army is immediately to be placed on a war
footing. Numerous failures are reported in
Liverpool, but the amounts were exaggerated.
Accounts from nations parts of Spain indicate
an approaching Carlist insurrecion. Chinese
advices to December twelfth, report that polit
ical affairs in the south of China are more crit
ical than ever. Trade was completely suspen
ded, and the Canton authorities have officially
applied to the American and English Consols
for assistance. Considerable reinforcements
were reaching the allied armies in the Crimea.
Sickness was increasing in the camp.
I The Russian G eneral Liprandi hasagniaad
vaneed his outposts to the Tchernaya. A RI.
sian army of 40,000 men, with a battery of 80
guns is said to be at the Isthmus of Perekop.
At Sevastopol the French had mined the flag
stall battery, and only waited a litvorable op.
portunity to blow it up. The Russians have
repaired and reoccupied the Quarantine fort.—
Arab deserters report that the Turkish troops
were treated with very little consideration by
the allies. A despatch from St. Petersburg
announces that the garrison of Sev ustopol
made two successful night sorties on the 13th
and 15th, killing a considerable number of
men, and taking fourteen prisoners. The large
• Russian force mustering at Perekop, is said to
be for an attack on Eupatorta.

For the Journal.
Mr. EDITOR :—As members of this great
Republic, we are under divers bonds and obli
gations, as well to the whole fld to the individ
ual citizens, for the promotion of the greatest
happiness of the greatest number, And if
moral are as binding . npon us as civil or
pecuniary hoods, which we believe to be a con
ceded truth, the following obligation and
reasons are respectfully submitted to the con
sideration of the intelligent readers of the,
Know all the world by these presents that
we the people of Pennsylvania are held and
firmly bound unto every individual hi the State,
by every principle patriotism and philanthropy
as,well as by all our resolutions and professions,
and especially by our high sense of moral re
sponsibility, to invoke the strong arm of civil
law for the protection of the defenceless, wheth
er that defencelesst , Is be moral or physical,
agianst every foe to It nan progress, everythin g
which tends to diml .sh she suns of our moral,
mental and physical powers, and against evet7
enemy to domestic peace, prosperity and happi
ness ; in the penal sum of deep sorrow, in
view of thirty thousand citizens annually lust
to the United States by intemperance, the es
tates for which we have toiled hard in order to
promote the comfort of our families, wasted in
drunkenness and riotous living, millions of onr
hard earned money spent in protecting the
community against demons, made such,
by the traffic in strong drink thousands of our
children incarcerated in prisons, penitentiaries
and asylums, disqualified for filling their places
in society, and others suspended between hear.
en and earth. as if miscreants unworthy of el
tiler, to expiate crimes committed under
the excitement of spirituous liquor, with all
the melancholy consequences resulting from
those habits, which aro too numerous and sor
rowful to be recited here, and which have been
too frequently stereotyped 'upon the human
heart and sensibility.
Now it' our time-honored sires were right in
their declaration, that the essence of human
Itherty consisted in a right to life, liberty and
the pursuit of happiness," surely it behooves
their children to protest against every thing
calcnlated to sap the foundation of all that is
dear to us us American citizens.
And therefore weprotest against the perplex
ity of our Legislature granting to a few the
whole monopoly of selling liquor, because
it is antidemocratic, and second it is contrary
to sound v;•!sioui and morality to grata license
to carry on a traffic, uS2less in itself, by which
they may, and do, kill an indennite and very
great number of fellow-citizens annually, ,r!!I ,
impunity, then taking away that life which is
the "inalienable" gift of God.
Is it asked if the traffic endangers human
liberty ; let the poor maniac, torn from friends
.and from society, believing that the flames of
a premature hell is burning up bin vitain, flying
from devils and and friends, maddened to de
spair, and under delusion ; plunging the weap
on of death in his dearest friend, answer, in
demoniac yells and horrible distortions.
Let the thousands of our fellow-citizens who
have become the squallid inmates of prisons
and posits ntiaries, deprived of the free light of
Heaven and of "liberty" to associate with their
race answcrin lamentations over their 'liberty"
forfeited by their intemperance. Or let some
yet running at large, whose judgement once
well balanced, is now driven from equilibrium
by a vitiated appetite, too strong an eutagonist
for the understanding, tell us if they are con
scious of the same amount of liberty to proc.
tice virtuous abstinence which they once en
joyed. _
'ls it asked if intemperance diminishes the
sum total of human happiness, let the inebriate
himself answer in his lassitude after quaffing
the dangerous cup, let the wretched widows and
miserable orphans, made such by intemper
ance, answer. But above all let the theologian
lift the veil which seperates the future world
from mortal view, and present the worm that
never dies, and the fire that is never quenched,
and let the universe of Cod answer.
And now in the name and for the sake of "life"
liberty and happiness, we claim a prohibitory
liquor law at the hands of our Legislature, be.
cause a large majo-ity of counties and Senatorial
districts have decided in favour of ithy vote,be
causeour senators and Representatives, are res
ponsible under Cod and the constitution, to their
immediate constituents only—and hemline the
laws of humanity cry aloud for such an enact
ment. We claim aright to be heard upon this and
, every other proper subject of civil Legislation,
and it is our unqualified determination to cry
aloud and spare not until our prayers are ans
wered, and until thd deadly Upas is cut up root
and branch. U. C. B.
Importation of Miracles,
Accounts from New York say that Uis Ho
liness, Pope Pius the Ninth, in consideration
of the services of the American prelates of his
church in settling the question of the Imnmem
Into Conception, is going tp send over to the
United States the Winking Madonna of Rimini
and another celebrated Madonna who weeps
instead of winks. We protest against this usur•
potion of the rights of our own showmen by
heads of churches. Heretofore the business of
miraculous pictures and wonder-doing automa
ta has been the legitimate property of Barnum
.d his imitators, and it is unfair to them for
the Pope to interfere and despoil them of this
trade. But wo have faith in their enterprise
and ingenuity to get up . Madonnal that shall
weep, wink, sneeze, sang, and, if desirable,
dance a polka and deliver a lecture on Wm
man's Rights all ou the same evening. The
inported articles could make no show ngrtiust
such specimens of domestic manufiteture. A.
new page in the philosophy of the show busi
ness is about to be opened. We shall have
the country supplied averywhe ro with "Mader
nas" that perform sundry more wonderful
things than either winking or weeping : How
His Holiness expects to make any capitol out
of such a simple contrivance. as the Rimini
lady, among an ingenious and practical people ,
like the Americans, we cannot immagme,
unless it should be because he thinks a wink
is as good as a nod to a blind horse.

Pennsylvania Railroad Company
The animal meeting of the Stockholders of
the Pennsylvania Railroad Company was held
last week, at the Season Street Hall, Phila.—
Hon. R. T. Conrad, gayer of the city, was
called to the chair, and Samuel Esq„
was appointed Secretary.
The annual report of the Board of Directors
was read. It gives an encouraging account of
the business and prospects of the road. From
it we glean: the bellowing details.,
The amount of unfinished work cot the sec
ond track is estimated at •$1,385,0(10. The
cost of the whole road will itut materially ex
ceed the amount stated in the list annual rc.
port of the Board.
There are now on the road 113 freight and
locomotive passengers engines; 36 wide pas.
gouger cars, 3-1 narrow do; 27 emigrant cars ;
.15 baggage cars, with mail apartments; 1033
8-wheeled stock cars 102 8-wheeled lumber and
iron tracks; 40 8-wheeled wood trucks ; and 00
•I•wheeled coal cars.
The whole number of passenger carrid do.
ring the year between Harrisburg and Pitts.
burgh was equivalent to 157,100 passing over
the whole length of the road. Being an in
crease of 25,864, or nearly 20 per cent. over
the previous year.
The total earnings from passengers was $l,
272,581 18, being an iiierease of $222,840 83.
After deducting tolls paid to other road ($234,-
737 77,) the earnings from passengers will be
$1,057,813 41.
The earnings from freight during 1834 were
$2,026,011 55. Being an increase over the
previous year of $519,091 05, or 341 per
The through tonnage has been largely in
cressesed. The total tonnage moved during
the year wns 56 0.10 per cent. greater than the
year before.
. . .
The actual business of the road
during the year was $3,512,295 13
Deduct Tells, . 618,025 88
Leaving business proper of
Pennsylvania Railroad, $2,894,036 25
The cost of conducting the business of the
road for the year, including $136,479 40 paid
to the State for tonnage tax, was $1,431,659 63,
leaving a nett revenue from the rood of $l,
462.376 60.
The profits of the road fur the year, after
deducting $670, 301 53 interest paid to stock
holders, and $353,840 73 interest on mortgage
Loads, together with all other expenses, were
$310.083.16. Which leaves, after cancelling
halance of interest account charged to cost of
construction '
surplus profits amounting to $287,
431 41. Of this amount, the Board has set
apart $lOO,OOO as the commencement of a
Sinking Fond.
The repeal of the tonnage tax is strongly ur.
ged in the report.

Gov. Bigler , in Washington.
Governor Bigler has been in Washington for
some time, it is said to secure the influence of
the Administration for the complimentary vote
of the Democratic members of the Legislature
fur United States Senator. The "Administra
tion" is so far below par in Pennsylvania that
its 'influence' will not be of much benefit to
Gov. 13igler or any burly else. A Washington
letter writer says that "Gov. Bigler may possi
bly desire to visit Prance," but Intimates that
"he will not be exiled." Wo had thought that
the "complimentary vote" givers to Gov. Bigler
by the Democracy last fall, would have proved
a "settler" for some time to come, but it seems
he is still unsatisfied, and is now willing to re
ceive, thankfully, the very smallest of favors--
the "complimentary vote" of the "corporal's
guard" of Democrats who accidentally occupy
seats in our Legislature. We take it, that af
ter Gov. Bigler's emphatic repudiation by the
old Keystone lust October, "the Administra
tion" will not very likely sacrifice what little
character and popularity it yet enjoys, by either
lending its "influence" to secure him "the com
plimentary vote" of the Democratic caucus for
United States Senator, or by sending him to
Prance I Bigler outraged public sentiment,
and committed political suicide, by taking to
his confidence, and elevating to office, a man
tvhow the people had condemned and repudia
ted as unworthy and incompetent. Through
his intrigues PIERCE was caught in the same
"snap," and has experienced the bitter conse
quences. It is not likely he will be caught a
second time, so that Bigler's chance for the
"complimentary voto" of the Democrats for
United States Senator, so far as the "influence
of the Administration" is concerned, is oboist
equal to his chance of being "exiled" to France!

Foreigners in Office.
In yesterday's Washington Union, we find
an editorial article giving . a statment of the
number of natives and foreigners holding• office
under the United States Government, which at
this time possesses interest. From the sum
mary, it appears that the toilet number of per.
sons employed under the State, Treasury and
Interior Depatinents, is 4106, of whom 3346
are Americans by. birth, 430 foreigners, and
330 whose place of birth is not known. This
is intended to prove that comparitively few
foreigners are in office under the national Gov
eminent; but a brief calculation will show that
there aro as many as the foreig . n population
bears proportion to the native in the cat.
At the date of the last census there were
17,737,000 native whites, and 2,210,000 for
eigners. This is the proportion of about one
foreigners to eight natives, while the number
of office holders as given above is in exactly
the same proportion. If the 330 where birth
is not known, be foreigners, there would be an
excess of them. Whether the statement has been
made up in such a manner as to show just
such facts which deserve mention, Shea, of
the ligthouse keepers 238 are set down as
Americans, 32 foreigners, and 132 not known ;
in the Custou department, 1843 Americans,
227 foreigners, and 26 not known; while in
the Interior department, which embraces the
Land Patent. Indian Penis., and other di.
visions, there are none where birth is not known
and the proportion is 286 Americans to 35
foreigners, exactly Bto I. The statment re
veals that the United States despatch agent in
London is an unnaturalixed foreigner, that
twenty-seven of our Consuls or commercial
agents, are also unnaturalised, and that of the
foreigners employed in the State department
one is not unturlized, "but soon will ha."

home trade, and the only transaction we are
advised of for uldpment is 500 bbls standard
