Tbo simo party that now attacks Gen
Paoker is tbo party that' was loudest in
advocating prohibitory and restrictive laws,
then, and denounced in unmeasured terms
Gen. Packer and tbo whole Democratic
party because they would not go into its
reslrioiivc and proscriptivo measuros. It
is tho same party that, in tbo Legislature
of 1 855, when Know-Nolbingism and Ulack
Republicanism run riot at Ilarrisburg, so
far disregarded the voice of tho sovereign
peoplo, as to enact a prohibitory law-
providing "that no license for tbo salo of
Liquors shall be granted to tho keeper of
any Hotel, Inn, or Tavern," &e. See
Pamphlet Laws of 1855, p. 220.
Tbo truth is, that Gen. Paoker during
his ent'rosenatorial carecr,did nothing moro
than to voto for leaving tho ffholo question
of prohibition to tbo decision of the sovoreign
people. Ilia act3 ore part of tho legislative
history of tho State, nnd tin cxamimtton
of tho Journals of. tho Senate, during tho
timo he was a member-of tbo body, will
show that this is his only offenco nothing
moro. And this is doubtless the reason
why, thoso politico-tempcranco writers and
orators aro now attacking him.
Wo shall refer to this subject at length in
n week or two, and shall .bo able to show
from the record that Gen. Packer is not
obnoxious to tho clurgc so falsely mado
against him.

It -is said that tbo last. Legislature of
Pennsylvania passed an act in relation to
banks, brokers and small notes, to go into

tho case, tbo parties interested should know
something about it, Can anybody give us
the desired information ?
JtST" Wo began to thi pk that tho Fillmore

completely swallowed up by tho Ab lition

Curious Sequel to the Great Divorce Case,
Tho Dalton Divorco case in Boston,
which furnished suoh a fund of spicy gossip
nnd scandal, has been followed by a singu
lar event, within a fow days nothing less
than the elopement of tho parties. Either
Mr, Dalton lias eloped with Mrs. Dalton,
or Mrs. Dalton h is eloped with Mr. Dalton ;
at any rate they havo gone together they
could not stand it apart, 'alter all was said,'
and tho father of the lady lias mado, or
is about tn make, loal application for
authority to pursue and recover hisdaughtor-
Tho father professes fear of personal injury
to bis flnughtcr, but bis foars aro without

of a miscrablo disptit", nnd tho father
should bo satisfied with it, as wo have no

Grand Jury of tho Ujiitcil Mates Court m
session
thero waited on liim in n body,
with request that ho would address his
fellow-citizens upon throo of tho most im
portant topics now agitating tho mind oft,at unhappy country, tli
tbo American people, namely, " Kansas," eamatcd with tho noor
"Tho Drod Peott Decision," and "Affairs
In Utah." Judgo Douglas consented, and
on Friday evening, tho 12th ult., tho hall
of iho Ilousoof Representatives was crowd
ed with a discriminating audience, including
many ladies. hx-Gov. Mattcson presided.
Upon commencing, Mr. Douglas remarked
that he recognized tho right of tho pocplo
nt any timo to call upon their public ser
vants for their opinions. As to tho Kan
sas question, his views, ho said, wero well
known, and ho had nothing to add. Ac
. r. . it . ... i . mi..
cording to tho Report in tho Chicago
Times ,
" Tho poiplo of that beautiful territory
would soon speak. Wo would soon have,
ho had no doutt, a free nnd quiet expres
sion of opinion, by means of tho clectivo
franchise, from that silont, but most certain
weapon of a freo people tho ballot box.
Should tho enemies of thatmodo of settling
tho much vexed question of slavery In that
territory, blindly and obstinately refused
to excrciso tho rights assurod them by tho
laws of Congress, upon their heads, and
theirs alone, will rest tho fearful' responsi
bility. For his part ho was satisfied tho
Dcmocratio party in Congress had done
their duty, and ho was equally well satis
fied that tho Dcmocratio party in tho terri
tory of Kansas would do theirs in a manner
gratifying to tho heart of every friend of
tho Constitution and tho Union, '
Judgo Douglas next alluded to tho deci
sion of tho Supremo Court in tho Drcd
Scott case, nnd defended the venorablo
chief justice ami tho other members of tho
Court from tho onslaught mado upon them
by tho sham Kepublicans.
"Ho adhered to tho doelrino that this
government is a government of laws, and
every freo and patriotic cbizen is bound to
uphold tho supremacy of iho laws at all
hazards nnd against all opposition, como
from what quarter it may. In such a eon
test, political parties must divido between
tho friends cf tho Constitution and the
laws, and tho enemies of all law. When
that contest comes, ho had laitli to believe
that fully nine-tenths of tho American pco
pie would bo found rallying under our
glorious banner of tho stars, and battling
fur tho same estimable blessings that our
forefathers battled lor a' constitution a
oountry and a government of laws.
If tho Hopublioan party desired to foroo
such a contest upon ui, iu God's namo let
it c m'i I Tho llcino-ratie party, and the

We continue to quote from tho account
in tho 'J imes :
" Uo reviewed tho main points in the

Tbo whole issue involved in tho war now

After giving a full explanation of tbo
fao s in tho Drcd Scott case, bo oamo to
tho last topic upon ,wbich ho was called upon
to Epoak, to wit : tho affairs of Utah :
"The act of 1850, creating tho territory
of Utah, was passed on tho supposi ion that
tho peoplo then residing thoro wero citizons
of tho United States, acknowledging thoir
allcgianco and claiming tho protection of
tho government. Seven yean exporienco
has demons rated a stato of fncta entirely
at variar.ee with the supposition then en
tertained.
If Iho reports that reach us from that
territory aro true, and ho had no reason to
doubt them, ono important fact stands
prominently forth, at.d that is, that at least
nine-tenths of tho present inhabitants of
Utah arc aliens by birth, who Mivo stead
ily refused to ticeomo naturalized or tako
tho oath of allegiance. Tho newspapers
aro filled with aecouuts of tlie fearful and
torriblo oaths to resist and subvert tho
government of tho United States, to which
thco wicked and deluded pooplo aro com
pelled to subscribe. It is oho well known
that tho iMnrmoii Governor has been and
is now engaged in forming alliances with
hostile Indian tribes, engaging them to
join in open warfaro against tho govern
ment of tho United States, and to murder
onr citizens. Assuming that these rcpons
aio true, it proves that tho governor him
self i? an alien to tho government of tho
United States, and acting in open defianos
,o pur laws.
Under thoso circums'anecs tho duty of
tho Administration is clear, and ho had tho
most implicit ootifidonco in Mr. Buchanan's
boldness, wisdom and firmness, and wns
satisfied he would movo straightforward
fearlessly in tho path of duty. Ho was
asuott wliat his views ot that duty wero,

sons hivo been arrested in Kansas, Nebras
' ka and other territories prior to their or
ganizitiou as territories, and hanged for
we territory.
The judge entered into a Inns and con
vincing argument,in which ho demonstrated
tint the lino of policy ho had marked out
for Utah did not conflict in any particular
with tbe principles of tho Nebraska bill,
but was in harmony with the Dcmocratio
platform in regard to tho power of the
government over tho organized territories
of iho United St-Vcs. II o said ho would
bo found as willing to moot this Utah
question as boldly and to do his duty as
I fearlessly as ho had done on tho Kansas
Nebraska bill; and should tho President,
when ho submits his viows on this question
at tho next ecs&ion of Congress, havo no
1 moro efficient plan of disposing of tho Utah
difficulty, ho pledged himself to bring in a
bill embodying substantially tho couiso of
' policy ho had thus briefly alluded to.
Alter thanking tho audience for tlieir
attention, ho loft tho stand amid tbo most
