The Location of the Main Repair Shops
of the O. and P. Railroad "A Fixed
Fad." The Purchase of the Aten
Property Completed und a Thousand
Dollars of the Purchase Money Paid
Over. Ulory Enovgh for One Day.
Negotiations have been going on for
the past lour or six months, to purchase
from Mr. Henry Aten, Sr., a tract of
land adjoining the corporate limits of
Wellsvitie, and contiguous to the present
possessions of the Cleveland and Pitts
burgh Railroad Company, but a purchase
was nut effected until eight or ten days
ajo. The purchase fitly acres was
made by Mr. Japob Stewart, of this
place, and a thousand dollats paid over.
lloweyer others may view (his puichase
and location of the main repair shops we
know not, but we view as ibe most im
portant negotiation for the interest o
Wellsville which has ever been made.
It will not only increase her business and
augment ber population, but will fix her
for all time to come, as the ''ceptie ol at
traciion lor the main ljqe of the Cleve
land and Pittsburgh Railroad and its uu
portant extensions and branches.
I he rroperty and the locality are
among the most advantageous on the line;
and when we consider their immediate
.connection with the Pittsburgh, Fort
Wayne and 1lucago ' railroad, Hie bleu-
benyille and Indiana road, the Central
Ohio road, and the Cleveland and Coir
unibus road, the Bellefontaine and Indiana
road, the Hamilton and Laytou road, the
Little Miami roaU and a bout ol others
penetrating ibe boundless west, it seems
to us that nature has aptly designed the
locality just purchased for the erection pf
mammoth Locomotive Works, Car man-
ufactories,&c, &c. The great amount of
rolling stock already employed on the
Cleveland and Pittsburgh railroad makes
this locality doubly valuable, as it is so
situated that the Master Machinist can
daily see every locomotive and ear on the
road, and judge for himself whether
they are in running order or not. This
ajoue will be a grand object attained, and
nons more that the great traveling public
will realize the benefits which will neces
sary result from it, as life and limb have
frequency paid the forfeit of iinperleci

"Power without fight is the most de
testable object that can be offered to the
human imaginatipn ; it is npt only per

but tends fo its own destruction."
The above important truth was utter
ed by no less a personage than Lord
Chatham- Well dd be un,derstan the
principle pn whic'n a) tyrany js based.
"Power without right." is unquestiona
bly the mpst dangefons prerogative that
men can assume, and the identical foun
dation on which tyrants and despots havp
built from lime immemorial the super
structure of their governments.
Tbat it is odious to the imagination
no ope that pontradicts the "diyine right
of kings," can possibly deny , for man
kind have inalienable rights pf liberty
and conscience, that despotic governments
forbid as incompatible with the genius of
power and authority, and subversive of
the (fearest tips Uiat ponnect the prown

The startling events and revolutions of
the last century, have all, directly pr in
directly, been urged to mitigate the usur
pations of power, the tyrany of laws and
the final abolishment of debased mon
archies, corrupted rulers enslaved Sen
ates, and also late parliaments. Its cef
tain accomplishment, the grand finals, is
foreshadowed in the great moral and
physical revolutions that now agitate the
Indeed, we may take a retrospective
glance at all the civilized nations on the
globe, and will find as a necessary result
of such retrospection, that a majority of
the convulsions and contests that disturb
the equanimity of nations, are precipitat
ed by oppressive laws, unjust exactions,
and an entire disregard of the natural
rights, the forbearance and welfare ot
their subjects. Hence, these moral revo
lutions, progressing slowly but truly
have, by the insulting obstacles thrown
before them, and a free and inconsiderate
use of the iron rod of despotism, been
merged into physical ones, and the peo
pie, per consequence, established a prin
ciple, secured a righl that was withheld
from them before.
The right of the people to govern
themselves has been objected to on the
ground that when by any fortuitous cir
cumstances they have enjoyed a momen-
tary triumph Pv the government, they
have in the enthusiasm of success passed
at onco into anarchy, and entirely disre
garding the ties of nature and humanity,
indiscriminately slaughtered the offending
parly revelled in the vilest sensualities
and yojuntarially returned back to the
monarchical system as the only one cal
culated to trovern them. Too much haste
and impetuosity will not gain as many
substantial triumphs as moderation.unani
mitv and deliberate action. Where laws
have been the most absolute, the people's
rights ihe least rpspectcd, the popular
mind in exact proportion nourishes hatred
and revenge, and when a fitting oppor
tunity occurs, takes seeming redress by
committing unwarranted excessses,
'For sorrow long indulged and slow,
Is to humanity a foe ;
And grief that makes the heart its prey,
Wears sensibility away."
Intimately connected with such despot
ic authority, sucli absolute and unwairant
ed tyranny, is the institution of slavery
as it exists in this country. Worse even
in its cruelties, its barbarities, its servile
abjectness, than that endured by the vic
tims of Russian barbarism in the dreary
mines of Siberia ; for they are subjected
to a life of ceaseless torture, an existence
of unrewarded servitude, the defenceless
victims of the lash, the branding iron, the
shackles, the bowie knife, the bullet and
the halter. The master is their sovereign,
their' arbiter, their judge, their execu
tioner. At their birth, yts, even al iheir
conception, be claims them as his proper
ly by the same law that he claims the off
spring of his herds. He evidently con
siders, and actually ranks them in his
catalogue as beasts, as the especial ere'
ations for ihe exercise of his talents as a
whipper, a grander and a tyrant in gen
With the savage fierceness, the lascivi
ous propensities of a Caligula, he tortures
one moment and caresses the next, with
one breath spurs on his bloodhounds to
told a criminal, imprison and even exe
cute when properly convicted of offences
that demand such punishment, but de
nounce as damnable, unlawful, and un
just, in any circumstance whatever, the
law that claims his children as property,
and subjepts to an existence of bondage
and relentless servitude. Hence, the in
stitution of slavery U founded in a lie,
perpetuated by interest, and sustained by
corruption and theft. v
Through its whole existence . you
cannot find ope redeeming quality, one
plausible argument, one mitigating ctr.-
pumstunce that justifies jt ii the minds
of generous and impartial men.
Exchapge your present condition with
that of the slave, give up your present
freedom of mind, of action and of opinion,
and submit to the cruelties of a relentless
master, and what convictions would flash
upon your mipd ? How apt to inappre

For the True American.
Mr. Editor. In the country we once
in a while get to see the Union newspa
per, puhlished in your town. The erratic
and inconsistent course of its editor has
often astonished us. He has been absent
we understand, for some time, but the
paper keeps on its shameless course, and
never once deviates into sense or truthful
ness. The effrontery of whomever scrib
bles editorials for it now is al once aston
ishing and ridiculous. He publishes a
considerable portion of the Report of
the Committee, who have investigated
their defalcation in the State Treasury.
This report, in his own paper, shows, to
the eaiisfaction of every man who can
read, that Breslin is the defaulter, who
abstracted the peoples money. The
Democratic chairman of this committee,
Mr. Parrott, not only says so, but reports
facts which conclusively prove it. The
Democratic State Convention, solemnly
resolve that Brslin is a defaulter and
that he and Gibson loth deserve impris
onment in the penitentiary. And yet
this unscrupulous writer in the (Juion,
along-side of this report and the resolu
tions of his party, charges Gibson with
the robbery, and says the Republicans are
responsible for tbe loss ! ! 1 There is no1
a well informed Democrat in the county
that don't blush at such brazen audacity.
Not only does his own party in Stale
convention boldly admit Brealio's crimi
nality, but the leading Democrats of your
town of Sleubenville know it. Some of
them ' knew before Gibson was elected,
that Breslin was a defaulter. They with
others then at Columbus, threatened to ex
pose Breslin's defalcation upon the close
of his term. They would have exposed
him at the close of his term, if any other
man than Bill Gibson, his brother-in-law
ud been nominated to succeed him in the
Treasury, i hey knew the money was
gone when Gibson went into office. They
have known it ever biuce and ihey know
it now. Wby did they not expose the
scoundrel t For ihe same reason that
Gibson says he did not, because Breslin
thought he could refund in time to pre
vent exposition.
That Gibson is guilty of concealing
the defalcation, no Republican has ever
denied. Republicans have always charged
him with that guilt. But those same
Locofocos who knew that the Treasury
had been robbed by Breslin, and sat mum
on the subject for years are as guilty of
this offence an Bill. Gibson, l'hey know
it, aud dare not, therefore, say a word
in commendation of the course of the
Union. ' '
If the Union Editor imagines that the
people out of the town of Steubeuville are
entirely ignorant of everything except the
ctuoniules of that paper, he is very much
mistaken. He is anxious we know to rid
the Democracy of ihe guilt of robbing tbe
Slate Treasury in order that the locofo-
cti'i of your city may obtain control of
the county treasury. If this scriblcr
wrote from principle, and for truth, he
would not .render himself so ridiculous
nor the columns of. his paper so inconsis
tent. .You I (rust will continue to give
the people facts, nnj they will judge for
iljeipsefves. J , ,' " , , A Taxpayer. ,
The most skeptical people can be con
vinced by trial that all the family medi
cines are not humbug, and that among
tbe thousand of butterfly life there are a
few of great merit, and undoubted worth.
Of these,. Dr. Sanford's Invigorator, or
Liver Remedy stands first and foremost
among the remedies of the day that can
be relied on as a medicine that is all it is
recommended- by its proprietors It ad
vertises itself on every trial, for there are
none who use it but tell their friend to do
so, and so it goes from mouth to mouth
till all the people of the Union have
learned the good of this truly valuable
me.4 icine. It is recommended with testi
monials to prove its virtue for the cure
of liver complaints pf every kind, from
the worst Dyspepsia to a common head
achs, and is particularly adapted to Jaun
dice, Deranged Stomach, Bowel Com
plaints and diseases of children.

An Old Heretic Caught. The New
York Observer tells the following good
story, the truth of which, and more of the
3ame kind, is stated in a pamphlet con
taining the history of the whole case.
Wuli amusement,anu with no little tn
strucuon, we have been reading an ac
count of some curious Presbyterian pro
ceedings in the northern part of the State
of New-York. It appears that in the
congiegation of Pittsburgh, of which
tbe Kev. 15. U. Smith is the pastor, a tew
members, less tlnn 20 out of 380, having
become inoculated with tbe virus of Ober-
linism and those other isms that come
with it, as the humors of the human ys
tein love to collect in one sore spot, be
coming disaffected, sought to affect his
removal. With this faction the Presby
ter? of Bath sympathised, and desired
Mr. Smith to ask a dismission from his
people. This he declined, as his people
wished him to remain, and he was very
well satisfied with them. At length the
Presbytery found that Mr. Smith was un
sound in doctrine, lie had become so in
tensely orthodox, that he had gone clean
over into dangerous and destructive error,
and must be called to account for heresy.
The Presbytery met, and at Mr. Smith's
suggestion, it was agreed (hat he should
oresent his views on certain points of doc
trine in a discourse, that they might hear
and judge him out of bis own mouth.
Accordingly, the accused minister ue
livered a very able and eloquent discourse
iu their hearing, to whioh they listened
with close and critical attention, prepared
to detect the evidence- of heresy lurking
under every figure, or tapering off in
evev period. It was done. Tbe hour of
judgment came, and the clergical mem
bers of the Presbytery, in tne presence
of the congregation, condemned him but
of his own mouth. The sermon was rank
heresy, a concatenation of errors, and one
man set it down as blasphemy. When
the whole body ol Ihem had commited
themselves unalterably against the sound
ness of the discourse, the pastor rose and
gravely informed them that he had read
in their hearing the 32nd lecture of Dr.
Chalmers,n on the Epiade pf the Ro
mans II!
The audience burst forth lorth in
storms of appiause. The feelings of tbe
Presbvterry, depicted in their faces, may
be imagined, but not now described.
Tbey were overwhelmed with contusion,
and vainly strove to recover by charging
the preacher with deception, uut tbe
case was simple. . He had offered to set
forth his views, and had done so in terms
that were easily revised.on a printed page
aud they bad pronounced those views
heresy. Their controversy must be with
the dead . Chalmers, as well as the live
Smith.- '.-."' '. ... ' i ?.'ivvVii!!' ,t
