cessary, in the Providence of GoJ, 10 etfectthe ab
olition of Slavery.
8. Resolved, That, in this view, no vote thrown

thrown for either of the proslavery parties is worse
3. Resolved, That the course of the represen
tative of this district in Congress on ;he subject
of slavery, refusing, or declining to record his
vote against the atrocious resolutions of Mr.
Holmc3 of South Carolina, condemning nil at
tempts to abolish that unholy system to the de
struction of which, lie pledged so much labor,
whon nominated to his present position, merits the
undivided disapprobation of his constituents, and
calls imperatively for a man to fill his place, who
will carry out the measure thus, promised, by his
act) in Congress.
4. Resolved, That Oscar L. Sii afteu of Wil
mington is a man of this character, having made
no promises, because none arc necessary, he hav
ing been known more than ten yeaid as an active
biitionist; and wo hereby pledge ourselves to do
nil which wo honorably may, to secure his election
Whereas, There is now a tiartv in

-4tb. Whereas the Liberty party ia stigmatized
as having but one idea; therefore, Resolved that
while we plead guilty to the charge, we arc happy
to know that our " one idea" is far paramount to
nil tlwsc discordant and absurd ideas which dis
tract the pro slavery parties and curse the country.
5th. Resolved, That, huving no confidence in
the political honesty of the leaders of either of
those parties, we will endeavor to supplant them
with our own as fast as possible
6th. Resolved, if he who looks upon a woman
with lust, is an adulterer: if he who bates his
brother is a murderer: if the Jews who justified
their fathers were guilty of the blood of the pro
phets whom their fathers killed then is he who
upholds slavery, either religiously or politically,
chargeable with being a partaker in all their crimes
I in the si.iht of heaven.
7. Resolved, That the popular doctrine of "choice
of evils" falls with an ill grace from the lips of
any man in christian America; as much so as it
would be to say that, because one man is possess
ed of seven devils, he is therefore to be preferred
to him who has eight or, to make a choice be
tween Sodom and Gomorrah.

Of such a wonderful invention ns this, our read
ers must, of course, desire to know something.
We think the following account of its origin and
mode of action, furnished by our neighbors of the
American, will be found sufficiently descriptive.
We therefore present it instead of an article of our
own, which we had intended to get up, more par
ticularly for the gratification of our country read
ers, most of whom, probably, will not soon have
an opportunity to personally inspect what is em
phatically the wonder of the day in this country
There are few persons who have not seen an
electrical machine, and witnessed the spark which
passes from it when in action, to any blunt object
which is presented to it. The accumulation of e
Icotricity in the machine, caused by turning the
cylinder or plate, has the same tendency to puss to
an object which has less electricity, that air has to
rush into a vacuum, or water to seek n level, t
lectricity, like air or water, always seeking to es
tablish an equilibrium. Besides the mode of pro
ducing electricity by friction, as in the common
electrical machine it is also produced bv the action
of an acid upon plates of different metals proper
ly attached together a fact discovered by the per
son whose name is perpetuated in the term Gal
vanism. The mode, in common use, of produ
cing galvanic action is to immerse the plates in a
trough with separate divisions at one end of
which the supply of electric fluid, generated by
the action of the acid, is in excess. This end of
the trough or battery, is called the positive, and
the other end tho negative polo of the battery.
Now, if a wire attached to one end, is brought
near to a wire proceeding from the other end, the
electricity passes from the positive to the negative
pole, and n spark is seen, like that proceeding
from the common electrical machine, which is the
electricity seeking to establish an equilibrium. If
the two wires are kept in contact, tber? ten stream
of electric fluid passing from one to the other.
i which is kept up by the action of the acid on the
j metallic plates already mentioned. Now; the or
dinary length of these wires, in a common Gal
vuiiic battery, is but a few feet; but they may be a
thousand or an hundred thousand miles in length,
and the effect of bringing them in contact with
each other is still the same that is, the flow,
through their entire length of a stream of elec-
I tricity at the rate already mentioned II therefore
the machine or Iiatterv is in v asirinatoii, and a
wire from the positive file is brought to Balti-

On Friday, the bill to fix the day of the Presi-
.v rapped here round
htipc, and then :roes
hack to V ashiiigtoii. In make this iron a mag
net, therefore, in Baltimore, it is only necessary
to connect tho ends of the wires in Washington,
where, so long as they are connected, the stream
of electricity which pusses along them produces
the desired effect upon the iron. When the con
i tiection is interrupted, the iron censes to be mag
jnelie, and is like any other piece of soft iron.
I This magnet, which the Professor Has the power
to ereale at pleasure, is i;s prime mover. Imnie-
ninieiy over uie magnet, say in Ualtimore, is a
brass lever, with a piece of iron attached to tt,
which is brought within a quarter of an inch or
less, fi tne noise siioe. as soon as this last is
made a magnet by uniting the ends of the wire at
Washington, it attracts the iron on the lever and
draws one end of the lever down, causing, at the
same time, the opposite end to rise. At this op
posite end is the pen or stylus, which is of steel
about an inch long, nnd about the size of a knit
ting needle. Immediately over it, is a brass cylin
der with a grove around it, into which llie stylus
strikes when tho masnet attracts tho othci end nf
the lever. Not far from this roller are two others,
revolving in contact, like the rollers used to draw
out cotton, prior to spinning it in a cotton mill
motion being given to them by very simple clock
work moved by n weight. The office of these
two rollers, is to draw from another roller, nnd
under the grooved roller, a strip of paper which is
wound round it, like a ribband, on its center block.
With these explanations the operation of the ma
chine can he readily understood.
When the professor in Washington wishes to
send a message to Baltimore, he spells it with let
ters composed of dots and lines for instance, A
may be a dot and linn, thus . ; B, two dots and
a line, thus . . ; C, a line nnd a dot, thus .
By connecting the end of the wires for an instant
only, a dot is made by the pressure of the stylus on
the paper which is passing over the grooved cylin
der; a line is formed by letting the ends of the
wires remain in. contact lor a longer tune, when
tho stilus is kept pressed on the moving paper.
The writing, w hen completed, resembles the rais
ed characters used in the instruction of the blind,
only, instead of the common alphabet, an alpha
bet of dots and lines, in different combination, is
made use of.
The mode of connecting the wires ns required,
is very simple. One of them is kept always im
mersed in a mercury, into which the other is dip
ped, whenever it is desired to send a current of
electricity through tho entire circuit, the fluid met
al forming a conductor between the ends. The
operation ol writing consists in press a button, to
which the end of the wires in use is attached, in
the manner in which a single key of a piano is
struck by the finger, with a succession nf rapid or
prolonged strokes, ns dots are required to be form
ed. We have spoken of the stylus as a single
piece of iron, but it is in fact composed of three,
like a three pronged fork, so that each letter is
made in triplicate.
As already stated) the paper is drawn over the
grooved roller, against which the stylus presses,
by the two rollers, which are set in motion by a
simple clock-like work which, in its turn, is
started by the first stroke of the lever a detent or
catch being withdrawn like the detent of a stop
watch; so long as writing is going on this de
tent is kept back, nnd when the writing is done,
the detent fnllinir into its place, stops tlip clock
work, and tho papor ceases to move. The first
stroke of the lever also rings a little bell, which
els the attention of tho attendant to the machine.
The whole machinery does not occupy a space of
more than one foot by two -mighty as is its lightning-like
agency. ftatiimore Sit. Eve, Visiter.
