SzcaETAßt'e Ornce, J HARRISBVRU, June 22, 1857. ) Pennsylvanii, ss; 1 do cetlily that the above ar.d foregoing is a true and correct copy ol the "Yeas" and 1 "Nays" taken on the resolution proposing amendments to the Constitution of the Com monwealth, as the sime appears on the Jour nals of the two Houses of ihe General As sembly of this Common wealth for tbe sosaion of 1857. i. r g Witness my hand and the seal of the ' said office, this twenty-second day of Joue, A. D. 1857. A. G. CURTIN, Secretary of the Commonwealth. CONSUMPTION, AND ALL DISEASES OF THE LUNGS aid THTOAT ate positively curable by inhalation, which conveys Ihe remedies to thecatilies in the lunge through the air pas sages, und coming in direct contact with the disease, neutralizes the tubercular matter, allays the cough, causes a free and easy ex pectoration, heals the lungs, purifies the bldoil, imparts renewed vitality to the nervous sys tem, giving that lone and energy so indis pensable (or tbe restorative of health. To be able to elate confidently that Consumption is cnrable by inhalation, is to me a source of unalloyed pleasure.. It ie as much under the control o( medical treatment aa any other formidable disease; ninety out of every hun dred cSses can be cured in. Ihe first stages, and fifty fter cent, in the second; but in tbe third stage it is impossible to save more than five per cent., for the lungs are so cut up by the disease as to bid defiance to medical skill. Even, however, in the last stages, in halation affords extraordinary relief to the suffering attending this fearful scourge, which Bunually destroys ninety five thousand per sons in ihe United States alone; and a corfect calculation shows that out of the present pop ulation of the earth, eighty millions are des tined.to fill the consumptive's grave. Truly the quiver of death has no arrow so falal as Consumption. In all ages it has been the great enemy of life, for it spares neither age nor sex, but sweeps off alike the tirave, the beautiful, the graceful, and the gifted.— By the help of that' Supreme Being, from whom cometh every good and perfect gift, I am enabled to oiler to the articled a perma nent and speedy cure in Consumption. The first cause of tubercles is from impure blood, and the immediate effect, produced by their disposition in the lungs, is to prevent the free admission of air into the ttir cells, which causes a weakened vitality through the entire system. Then surely it is more rational to expeot greater good frdm nr.edij cines entering the cavities of the lungs than from those administered through tt.a stom ach; the patient will always find the lungs free and the breathing easy afte* inhaling remedies. True, inhalation is a local remedy, nevertheless it acts cb.islitutionally, and with more power and certainly than rem edies administered by the stomach. To prove the powetlul and direct influence of 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 ba amputated without the s'ightest pain; inhaling the ordinary burning gas will destroy life in a few hours. The inhalation of ammonia will rouse the system when fainting or apparently dead.— The odor of many of the medicines is per ceptible in the skin a few minutes after being inhaled, and may be immediately detected in ilia blood. A convincing proof ot the constitutional eflects of inhalation, is the fact that sickness is always produced by breath ing fool air. Is not this positive evidence that proper remedies, carefully prepared and judiciously administered through the lungs, should produce the most happy results! Du ring eighteen years' practice, many thous ands, suffering from diseases of the lungs and throat, have been coder my care, and I have affected many remarkable cures, even after ihe sufferers had been pronounced in the last stages, which fully satisfies me that consumption is no longer a latal disease.— My treatment 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 ease that simulate consumption, and apply the proper icmedies rarely being mistaken even in a single case. This familiarity in connection with certain pathological and mi croscopic discoveries, enables ms to relieve the lungs from the effects of contracted chests; to enlarge the chest, purify Ihe blood, impart to it renewed vitality, giving energy and tone to the entire system.

The undersigned, members of tbe Commit tee, do respectfully report, that we saw the two Safes originally agreed upon by Farrele 1 b Herring and Evans b Watson, plsced side by side in a furnace, viz: The Sale in use by tbe Paymaster of the Philadelphia and Read ing Railroad Company, in his office at Read ing, manufactured by Farrels & Herring, and the Safe in uee by H. A. I.antz, in bie store, manufactured by Evans b Watson, and pni in books and papers preoisely alike. The fire was started at 8} o'clock, A. M., and kept up until four cords of green hickory, two cords dry oak and half chestnut top wood were entirely consumed, the whole under the superintendence of tbe subscribers, mem bers of the Committee. The Safes were then cooled off with water, after which they were opened, agd the booke and papers taken out by the Committee and sent to H. A. Lantz's store for public examination, after they were first examined and marked by the Commit, lee. The books and papers taken from the Safe manufactured by Evans b Watson wjere but slightly affected by the intense heat, while those taken from the Safe manufac tured bv Farrels b Herring were, in our judg ment, damaged fully fifteen per cent, more than those taken from Evans b Watson's Safe.

Extract from the Committee's Report on the Trial of Iron Safes at Reading: "On the 26ib of February all the members of the Committee met to witness the Safes and books and papers, (placed in them) and were perfectly satisfied that all was right.— The day following, the burning took place, under the superintendence of the Committee. After a fair and impartial burning for five hours, the Safe of Messri. 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, and no fire inside." , Reading, March 2, 1857. H. F. FELIX, 1 (Signed) * P. N. COLEMAN, J Com. A. H.

A. Laniz.] made dou ble thickness, (different from those they sell) to "burn up" or.e of Herring's, (half as thick) has met with its tiue reward. Herring's Sate conld not be burnt, proving conclusively that the only reliable Safe now made is Herring's, of which over f 5,000 are now in actuel use, I and more than 200 have been tried by fire , without a single loss.
