P. X. P. B. wiire. a very &irnos t
appeal in behalf of Judgo Mackoy.
He sooms to misconceive our posi
tion. We are not actuated by any
hostility to Judge Mackey ; on the
contrary, for an unexpired term we
would back the judge against all
come.is, and our advocacy of the
viva voc mode of voting was stron
ously made with the full knowledge
that it would retain Judge Mackey
in his seat. But for a now term
Judge Mackey's friends must ad
evance his individual merits as a claim,
and not his political services.
That Judge Mackey p)ossesses
ability of high or'der none can deny,
and the Legislature can elect him on
the score of fitness if it seis prlop)er.
But granting a judgeship on the
ground of political services is a
orime. We will not now discuss
Judge Mackey's p)ast record, j udicialI
or p)olitical, and wvill grant that, in
future, he will comport himself well
as a judge. Let his friends then
advocate him on high grounds.
As to whether we have gauged
public opinion, that is an openf
question. It matters not, however,
to us, in expressing our conviction,
whether we do or not reflect popu'
lar sentiment, though we are always
gratified to gain the ap)prob ation of
our readers. Our modest belief is
that we don't miss as often as others
In conclusion, it is needless to re
mark that we are not responsible for
the opinions of correspondents. The
vast difference in tenor between the
communication of "Vox" and "P. X.

Death of Pius IX.
Pope Pius IX (lied at Rome on
the evening of the 7th of February,
after a lingering illness. He
was the two hundred and fifty
seventh Roman Pontiff, having been
elevated to his high position on the
16th of June, 184G. His name was
Giovani Maria Mastai Fo~rrotti, andl
h~e was born at Sinigaglia, May 13,
1792. He was intended for the
army, but resolved to devote him
to the church. Soon after, he was
entrusted with a, mission to Chili,
was subsequently sent to Naples,
and to other places. On the death of
of Gregory XVI, he became Pope
under the title of Pius IX. He "'as

Dr. J. H. Scionek, of Philadelphia,
owes his unrivalled success in the
treatment of pulnonary diseases.
The Pulmonic Syrup ripens the
morbid matter in the lungs, nature
throws it off by an easy expectora

the prostrating cough. The Man
drake Pills must be freely used to
cleanso and stimulato the stomach

start the bile freely, and the liver
is soon relieved. Schenck's Sea
