Amon and FmakMa, and Eogwr Sherman, and
also perhaps, (for this i* the first time I have been
** here,) in this very room, stood the dauntless John
Hancock, as he received from those men, not
only the assertion of our rights, but the charter
of our liberties. Can we do any thing but bow
iu a place like thin? It in not in my power to
speak to you at length. You have said very
properly perhaps that it is not your province, ft
certainly is not mine to disturb the deep current
of feeling which courses the hearts and minds of
those around nie. .
But it is not only your city?it ia your State
that is of some mark. In a peculiar sense are
your resources of wealth and power reposed in her
own bosom. She is an empire in herself. Why,
the development of the uses of' iron and coal so
pre-eminently since 1H16, the foundation of British
wealth and power, would of itself constitute
a never-failing source of prosperity to you. But,
Hir, it is not that on which you have mainly relied.
It is your agriculture. How rich you are
not only in the means of production, but, above
all, in the men who produce. [Applause.]
Sir, I would not here forget that remarkable
German population, so distinguished for their
thrift, their industry, their integrity, and their devotion
to civil and religious liberty; and I think
you must all rejoice that wherever that race go,
and are spread, they look to Pennsylvania in some
respect as their second fatherland.
Sir, it is not chiefly, perhaps, or not so much

The Gwin and McCorkle Duel;
As we elsewhere quote from a California paper
a jeu d'esprit relating to this affair, it is proper
we should, in all soberness, give place to the following.
After seventeen days of suspense, it must
not be deemed surprising that tho good tidings of
4' nobody hurt" should excite in us a disposition
to be merry over this mclo-dramatic, if not tragic,
An Affair of Honor.?A hostile meeting took
place, about two o'clock yesterday afternoon, between
the Hon. Win. M. Gwin and the Hon. J.
W. McCorkle, in consequence, as we learn, of
certain offensive remarks made by the latter while
on the race-course. The ground selected was just
this side of the boundary line between San Francisco
and Santa Clara counties; but on receiving
intelligence that some interference was to be
looked for, the parties proceeded to a spot about
three miles the other side of the line. Mr. McCorkle
won the choice of position and the word.
Tho weapon selected was the rifle; distance thirty
paces, tho combatants to wheel at tho word and
fire. A number of spectators were on the ground.
Three shots were fired without effect, one of Senator
Gwin's balls passing almost through the hair
of Mr. McCorkle. The following document,
signed by the friends of the parties, will explain
the sequel:
44 After an exchange of three ineffectual shots
between the Hon. Win. M. Gwin and Hon. J.
W. McCorkle, the friends of the respective parties
having discovered that their principals were
fighting under a misapprehension of facts, mutually
explained to their respective principals in
what the misapprehension consisted; whereupon
Dr. Gwin promptly denied the cause of provocation
referred to in Mr. McCorkle's letter of the
29th May, and Mr. McCorkle withdrew his offensive
language uttered on tho race-course, and expressed
regret at having used it.

on account 01 your nunurea resource*, or uu account
of your commanding political influence in
point of votes, that this nation lias designated you
the Keystone of the Arch. It is because of your
geographical position.
You are neither a Southern, a Northern, an
Eastern, nor a Western State, and I should perhaps
not much exaggerato if I were to say that
you are all combined. [Applause.] Your rivers
on this fljde of the ridge empty themselves into the
beautififf bay below you. On the west they swell
the flood of the Ohio, and finally wash the shores
of Louisiana.
11 Sir, let me say to you that patriotic men
throughout this entire country, North and South,
look to you, and will always do so, not simply as
the Keystone of the Arch, but as the great central,
self-sustaining link in the chain which binds
this Union into one harmonious whole, and which,
holding it steadily and firmly to its moorings, will
enable it to ride over every storm. [Enthusiastic
Noble, noble men of Philadelphia, and men of
Pennsylvania ! Noble for your fidelity to the duties
imposed upon you by the obligations of your
Constitution. May I not say?let nie say here?
you are not only triply armed, but you arc notf
and have been triply bound. Here was the Declaration
of Independence proclaimed?here the
Articles of Confederation were promulgated?and
here, finally, that Constitution for which you have
so nobly stood was adopted. [Cheers.] I could
wish for you no higher honor, and for my country
no higher place and security than that groat and
noble devotion which you have thus far so honorably
upheld and maintained.

He expressed his thanks in oloquent language,
and paid a glowing compliment to the chivalry,
gallantry, and patriotism of Pennsylvania. Her

was sure to follow.
New Jersey had a strong representation in the
procession, and among her Committee of Arrangement
were her two distinguished United States
Senators. Much enthusiasm was displayed at
various points; and during the evening General
Pierce 011 more than one occasion expressed himself
as gratified beyond measure at the truly generous
and brilliant reception that hud been given
to him by the citizens of Philadelphia.

"Their missions lo Europe and also here are attended
with a wonderful success. They are
fetching to this country converts by the thousands,
if not millions. An English paper in their
interest, called the Millennial Star, in speaking of
the Mormon emigration from that country, pretends
to 'furnish an abstract statement for the satisfaction
of all who are interested in the gathering
of the people of God,' and says: 'Eight vessels
iiave sailed from this port Bince the 15th of
Januurv .last, 2,586 saints; 23 saints have emigrated
by other vessels, making a total of 2,600,
nearly nil of whom had their arrangements made
before leaving, to proceed directly through to the
Great Salt Lake Valley. Of this number 2,252
have emigrated by their own arrangements, 957
of the ^10 companies, 400 by the Perpetual Emigration
Fund Company- The whole involving an
immediate expenditure of about <?30,000. The
entire machinery for making the best broadcloth
went out under the care of Elder George Halliday.
The machinery belongs to the Desert Manufacturing
Company, and is constructed on the
most approved principle.'
"At this rate the Salt Lake Valley will soon be
densely populated. But what the character of its
inhabitants will be is probably not very well
known. Under the sanction of religion the Mormons
have spiritual wives and a plurality of
wives. We have just seen it stated that Brlgham
Young, their present leader, with his half score of
wives, more or less, has over thirty children; and
so of the rest of them. They have also other
practices equally objectionable, and if they are to
liave the government of one of the States of this
Union at some time, as doubtless they will, all
necessary care should be taken by Congress that
they are not an enemy in our midst, instead of a
Drinking in San Francisco.?The Christian
Advocate lias found by actual count the whole
number of places where liquor in sold in that city
to be five hundred and thirty-seven. Of these
eighty-three are purely liquor, in retail line, and
fifty-two wholesale; making one hundred und
twenty-five places which do not keep an onion to
modify the trafiifc. Of the four hundred and
twelve places where it is sold in connexion with
other business, one hundred and forty-fbur are
tavern restaurants; one hundred and fifty-four
groceries; forty-six gambling houses; and fortyeight
supposed to lie kept by bawds! Some of
these appear genteel, others are dance-houses and
such like, where Chinese, Mexican, Chilian, and
other foreign women are assembled. There were,
five hundred and fifty-six bar-tenders present in
tho various places at the time when the memoranda
wore taken. Wo think wo may safely add
one quarter, if not one-third, as reserve corps,
making, including women, seven hundred and
forty-three bar-tenders in that city.
The Lihrart or Congrkss.?The commodious
and elegantly-adorned room in the Capitol is now
finished, and must be admired by every one for
its exceeding beauty. It is supposed that in
the course of two weeks the books will be shelved
and tho furnituro (which is now boxed in the
crypt) arranged in its proper place. The carpet
is tapestry velvet, the pattern designed by Messrs.
Clagelt & Dodson, of this city, and approved by
the Committee on the Library. It was manufactured
expressly for those merchants by a company
of Troy, New York. It is indeed a fine and
rich specimen of American skill, and shows what
ends can be accomplished in this branch of manufactures.
We learn that one thousand yards have
been furnished by Messrs. Clagett Ik Dodson for
the Library, at a cost of two dollars and twentyfive
cents a yard.
Improvements at the Caimtol.?The Hall of
Representatives is now in as great a state of confusion
as the East Room of the President's House?
the desks, chairs, and all the fixtures having been
removed, while workmen are busily employed in
frascoing the dome. A scaffolding of no small
proportions is required for this operation, which
is under the superintendence of Mr. Delamano, of
New York, a gentleman who has displayed his
fine artistic skill on the room of the Library of

other were to the ear.
