SECRETARY'S OFFICE, I
HARRISBURG, June 22, 1857. j
Pennsylvania, ss:
I do certify that the above ar.d foregoing is
a true and correct copy ol the "Yeas" and
"Nays" taken on the resolution proposing
amendments to the Constitution of the Com
monwealth, as the same appears on the Jour
nals ol the two Houses of the General As
sembly of this Commonwealth for the session
of 1857.

CONSUMPTION,
AND ALL JISEASES OF THE LUNGS
nrd THTOAT ate positively curable by
inhalation, which conveys the remedies to
the cavities in the lungs through the air pas
sages, ond coming in direct contact with the
disease, neutralizes the tubercular mailer,
allays the rough, causes a free and easy ex
pecio'otion, heals the lungs, purifies the blood,
imparls renewed vitality to tho nervous sys
tem, giving that lone and energy so indis
pensable for the restorative of health. To be
able to slate confidently that Consumption is
eurabla by inhalation, is to me.asource of
wnaUpvcil pleasure, it is as m licit VndertWT
j contfrit of medical treatment as any other
i formidable disease; ninety out of every hun
dred ca-cs can be cured in the first stages,
and fifty per cent, in the second; hut in the
third stage it is impossible to save more than
five per cent., for the luugs are so cut tip by
the dispasa as to bid defiance to medical
skill. Even, however, in the lost stages, in
halation affords extraordinary relief to the
suffering attending this tcatful scourge, which
annually destroys ninety five thousand per
sons in the United States alone; and a correct
calculation shows that out of the present pop
ulation of the earth, eighty millions are des
j fined to fill the consumptive's grave.
| Truly the quiver of death has no arrow so !
: fatal as Consumption. In ull ages it has been
I the great enemy ol life, for it spares neither
age nor sex, but sweeps oflf alike the brave,
| the beautiful, the graceful, and the gifted.—
j By the help of that Supreme Being, from
! whom cometli every good and perfect gift, 1
j am enabled to oiler to the afilcled a perma
nent atfd speedy euro in Consumption. The
j first cause of tubercles is from impure '
, blood, arid tbe immediate effect, produced
i by their disposition ill the lungs, is to prevent
| the free admission of air into the air cells,
' which causes a weakened vitality through
I the entire system. Then surely it is more
i rational to expect gren'er good from rr.edij
! cines entering the cavities of the lungs than
1 Irom those administered through the storrt
| ach; the patient will always find tho lungs
' free and the breathing easy after inhaling
| remedies. True, inhalation is a local
I remedy, nevertheless it acts constitutionally,
and with more power and certainty titan rem
edies administered by the stomach. To prove
I the powetlul and direct influence ol this
! mode of administration, chloroform inhaled
will entirely destroy sensibility in a few min
utes, paralyzing the entire nervous system, so
that a limb may be amputated without the
shghlest pain ; inhaling the ordinary burning
gas will destroy life in u few hours.
The inhalation of ummouiawill rouse the
system when fainting or apparently dead.—
The odor of many of the medicines l4s|Uti--
cepdble in the skin a few minutes after being
inhaled, and may be immediately delected
in the blood. A convincing proof of the
constitutional effects of inhalation, is the fact
that sickness is always produced by breath
ing foulir. Is not lit is positive evidence
that proper remedies, carefully prepared and
judiciously administered through the lungs,
should produce the mo6t happy results? Du
ring eighteen years' practice, many thous
ands, suffering from diseases of the lungs
ar,d throat, have been under my care, and I
have affected many remarkable cures, even
alter the sufferers had been prnnonnced in
the last stages, which fully satisfies me that
consumption is no longer a latal disease.
j My Ireutmetit of consumption is original, and
founded on long experience and a thorough
investigation. My perfect acquaintance with
the nature of tubercles, &c., enables me to
distinguish readily the various forms of dis
I ease that simulate consumption, and apply
the proper remedies rarely- being mistaken
even in a single case.. This familiarity in
connection with ccrtajtf pathological and mi
cioscopic discoveries, enables me to relieve
the lungs from the effects of contracted chests;
to enlarge the chest, purify the blood, impart
to it renewed vitality, giving energy and lone
to lite entire system.

Report of the Committee appointed to
superintend the burning of the Iron
Safes at Reading, Feb. 27th, 1857.
READING, March 4th.
The undersigned, members of the Commit
tee, do respectfully report, that we saw the
two Safe* originally agreed upon by Farrels
& Herring and Evans & Watson, placed side
by side ir. a furuucn, viz: The Sale in nse by
the Paymaster of the Philadelphia and Read
. ing Railroad Company, in his office at Read
. ing, manufactured by Farrels k Herring, and
the Safe in use by H. A. I.antz, in his store,
manufactured by Evans & Watson, and put
in books and papers precisely alike.
The fire was started at 8j o'clock, A. M.,
' and kept up until four cords of green hickory,
1 two cords dry oak and half chestnut top wood
were entirely consumed, the whole under
the superintendence of the subscribers, mem
bers of the Committee. The Safes were then
. cooled off with water, after which they were
> opened, agd the books and papers taken out
by the Committee and sent to H. A. La/ttz's
store for public examination, after they were
first examined and marked by the Commit
tee. The books and papers taken from the
1 Safe manufactured by Evans St Watson were
but slightly affected by the intense heat,
while those taken from the Sale manufac
tured bv Farrels & Herring were, in out judg
t ment, damaged fully fifteen per cent, more
than those taken from Evans k Watson's
Safe.

that, but he will also do them up in the best

His shop is at the old stand, (too wel

at all times be found, seated upon the bench
of repentance,steadily drawing out the (Arena
of affliction,hopeing it may in the end prove
advantageous to him and his customers. He
would also advise his fiends to bear in mind
that poor, afflicted tailors must live, or they
can't be expected to work. Therefore Wheat,

THE ACKNOWLEDGED
CHAMPION!!
H-S-lt'-L- 1 ll&ii THE recent trials at Read-
Ifefflit -Ogatl'Hg have endorsed the cur-
of public opinion, and
confirmed the verdict of more than 300 acci
dental fires, proving conclusively that "Her
ring's" is the only safe that will not burn.
Extract from the Committee's Report on
the Trial of Iron Safes at Reading:
"On the 26th of February all the members
of the Committee met to witness the Safes
and books and papers, (placed in them) and
were perlectly satisfied that all was right.—
The day following, the burning took place,
under the superintendence of the Committee.
Altera fair and impartial burning for five
hours, the Safe of Messrs. Evans & Watson
was first opened, the Safe being on fire in
side, and the contents partially consumed,
while the contents in the Safe of Messrs.
Farrels & Herring were in good condition,
anil no fire inside."

And endorsed by over 50 of the best men

The above Safes can be inspected at 34
Walnut Street, where the public can satfsfy
themselves of the great superiority of the
"flerring's Patent Champion," over the de
feated and used-up "inside Iron Door Sala
mander."

The attempt made by other partiea to bol
ster up the reputation of a Safe which has
failed signally in accidental fires in Philadel
phia, (Ranstead Place,) by taking one out
of an agent's store, f 11. A. Lintz,] made dou
ble thickness, (different from those they sell)
to "burn up"or.eol Herring's, (half as thick)
has met with its Hue reward. Herring's Sate
could not be burnt, proving conclusively that
the only reliable Safe now made is Herring's,
of which over 15,000 are now in actual use,
and more than 200 have been fried by fire
without a single loss.

cetlify that everything connected with them
is done in a strictly honorable manner, and
that the interisis of parlies who reside at a
distance are as well protected as if they
themselves were prpsent at the drawing
Another fact which the managers call atten
tion to, is, that all persons have a legsl right
to send orders for tickets to Maryland, at
lotteries are legalized by special law in that
stale. A lottery is drawn every day of the
