WOOD, Esq., late of Kansas, and now being hunted by the Border Itulliaim on a charge of high treason, will address the people at the court house in this plnce, on Tuesday evening, July 1 5tb. Laboring Men's candidate. Some persons pretend to object to Fremont because he is not a politician because he has never been a brawling party leader, or a cunning wire woikcr. Such persons believe that otlice seeking is an honorable business, and would vote for a drone of this character in preference to a man who has been content to devote his lime, talents, and eneigy to the public good, uninfluenced by those selfish mo tives and petty ambitious aims so common among politicians. Fortunately for the pub lie gcoi, this class of persons is limited to a few who follow the business of office hunting, while the great mass of the industrious peo ple take pleasure in elevating worthy men from their own ranks. These two classes of persons are well rep resented by Fremont and Buchanan. The last named gentleman has always been a pol itician, his aim always being fur office, to se cure which be has ever been willing to stand upon any platform selected for the occasion. No other person could be found in the entire country, who would so cheerfully lend him self to the support of any measure presented, and who would say "I am no longer James Buchanan," but a tool for the politiciins who can serve themfelves by using me. This is bis trade of such is his history. How different is the caso with Fremont. The son of a widow, his catly years were in ured to hardships, and although a liberal edu cation was his fortune, fur it he was more in debted to industry than wealth, and his con dition in life stimulated a thorough acquain tance with those branches cf learning which could be put into immediate practice and en able him to secure an bcnorablo livelihood by the sweat of his blow. II is l.istoiy is too well known to the people to re quiro a repeti tion at our hands. Under all circumstances, in every Geld of labor to which hu has been called, his ability has more than (quailed the important duties devolving upon him. As a politician, his career bus bun brief, but quite long enough to establish, two facts. First All parties unite in attiibuting the adoption of a free constitution by California to his influence, and therefore none can doubt Lit devotion to freedom in opposition to slnverv. Second It is equally evident that his sup port of the free constitution of California lost for him a seat in the United Stales Senate. Had he been willing to have been " iio longer John C. Fremont," but merely a tool for de signing men, he might to-day hold a seat ou the flour of the Senate. But he was no pol itician, nothing but an honest, indutrious, and talented man, devoted to right without refer ence to its leward Another fact is here es tablished, to wit: that with him, duty to the public has precedence over self-advancement. With this state of facts before the people there can be no doubt a to which of the two candidates is most dejerving of the support cf the laboring people of the country. Right well do they understand this subject, and al ready they are beginning to give demonstra tions of their devotion to Freedom and. Fre mont, Suoh is the case in Mount Vernon, where) the it lelligent employee of Messrs. Coopers A Clark, extensive engine, car, and locomotive manufacruren, havo erected a flag over their extensive machine shop, with the words Fre mont and Dayton inscribed upon it. Wc know these men, and they are eminently fit to head the column of industrious freemen who are resolved npon placing Fremont and Jessie in the White House. Important from Washington. The wheels of legistatiun, on the Kansas question, are now fairly hitched. Tho House refused to pass the bill to admit Kansas as a free Stale, with the Topcka constitution, on Monday of last week, by a majority of one. Ou the following day, Mr. Barclay, of Pa., moved to reconsider the vote, which was car ried by 101 to 97. After much wrangling and sparring, the bill was passed by 100 to 97. Mr. Mott, representative from this dis trict, left his room in New Yoik, where he has been confined fur eight weeks, to aid in the final passage of the bill. Herbert had been indicted lor the murder of Keating and was cor fined in jail, while Payne (South American) was absent without having paired off. These changes saved the bill. While th.se proceedings were going on in the House, the Senate was busily engaged in the discussion of Douglas' Kansas bill, and after a protract d session on Wednesday night, the final vote was taken and stc od yeas 33, nays 12. Ihe Fillmore and Buchanan men joined hands in th:s struggle, but in the popular branch the Republicans were too much for them. " In Mnuniec a general meeting of the citizens wis colled, to take measures to celebrate, the duy, Fourth and it was lliere proclaimed ly some of Hie KepnUlican speakers mat niey woum uo join in a celebration in wliuii any person wno would not vote lor i'reniont slioum lone pun. ToUtlo Commercial. The writer of the foregoing sentence has been altogether misinformed. We happened to be present at the meeting alluded to, and prjsume the informer had reftrence to the re maiks mi.de by Dr. Conant.who said, in sub stance, that no perEon coull deliver a Fourth of July oration, fit lo be called tuch, without being denounced as a black Republican, and for his part he had no desire to participate in a celibrrtion where it would not be proper to speak of freedom, liberty of speech, and the sacredness of the ballot-box. We don't won der that those who sustain the atrocious acts of the present administration, and seek to per petuate its career by the (lection of Buchan an, oppose every effort to renew in the hearts of the people those sentiments of freedom and f qualiiy which are so fully and forcibly por trayed in the Declaration of Independence, and which were so well sustained by the pa tiiotio friends of freedom in that day. The signers of that declaration of freedom, like the advocates of freedom in Kansas, were in dicted fur high treason, andjcould they have been captured, hemp would have been stretch ed by them, as it now is in Kansas, for enter taining and uttering tVe same sentiments. tW The bill for improving the mouth of the Mississippi river, the St. Clair Flats, and for the removal of the bar of St. Mary's riv er, between lakes Huron and Michigan, has been passed over the President's veto, by a heavy majority in both houses of Congress. J9The Republicans of Maine hove nom inated for Governor Hun. Hanibal Hamlin, Democratic U. S. Senator from that State. Mr. II. has always acted with the Democrat ic party, but the Cincinnati platform was too much for him, and therefore he publicly avowed, in his place in the Senate, that he could no lender act with that party. Fillmore, in his Albany speech, advi ses the South, in the event of Fremont and Dayton's election, to withdraw from the Un ion. He thinks it too much to ask them to submit to the rule of the majority, provided that majority favors freedom. When some men arc in the pit, they are out of humor with every body in the dresi circle! -Sentors Seward , and Sumner havo both written letters in favcr of the Republican nominees. gV Judge Palmer is holding court and making stump speeches throughout his dis trict, holding courts by day and political meet- j ings by night. This is the programme of per l formar.ee in Napoleon. I jrHon Wm. Stanberry, of Newark, a j leading Tr mble man last year, is now ou the I slump for Fremont and Dayton. ' Juhn Iirough, formerly a leading Dem ! ocrat of this county, and editor of the inqui rer, at a ro.ilical meeting in Indianapolis last week, made the following significant remarks : ' I thall not attempt to make a speech at this time, even a democratic speech, for the reason that if I should now beio where I left off twelve years ago, my speech might be too much of a free soil speech, or it ungiiinoi be at perseut un orthodox democratic speecU. Mr. Brough, like thousands of others who ire denouncod by ihe Enquirer and other papers as " r negades," stands where he did twelve years sgo, but the party that now calls itself democratic, has fuisaken the prin ciples, leaving all true men who bear thut name high and dry.

This i.i but the beginning of the end in Old Pennsylvania. Female Physicians. It is but few years since public attention was first called to the propriety of establish ing Modical Collegia foor wmen, and the ut terance of a conviction of its necessity was sufficient to call down torrents of abuse ; wlich particularor feature still exists, though in a comparatively limited degree. Man kind have for so long axtime been taught to believe that woman Kas created merely for kitchen and nursery purposes, that an in novation upon (his belief and (he general cus tom founded upon it, very naturally excited the condemnation of Ihe thoughtless, as well as those who had been taught to think as did their fathers, back to the first genera tion. Necessity is said to be tho mother of in vention, and it may with equal truth be quoted ns the source from whence all the powers of woman ore to be developed. Her powers of patitnt endurance, christian forti tude, and all those jewels of virtue which adorn and elevate a true christian, have been thoroughly developed and moat strin gently tested, holding good to the last ; un til she is more fieely acknowledged by man to be vastly his superior in all the finer graces of social life. Still, it is contended by many that for all these excellent traits of character, she is more indebted lo nature than to rea son that they are instinctive qualities which she cannot avoid, while man only acquires them by the exercise of bis superior judg ment and industry. Wc cannot pause here to dissi ct this error. It is but comparatively a short time since woman has been allowed to enter tho field of literature, as author, and we have no works of distinction from female pens dating prior to Ihe nineteenth century. The kitchen and the nursery was then strictly her field of op eration, and the firm iron wall of tyrannic opinion kept her within this (ncloture rneie ly as nn instrument created by God for man's happiness and to perpetuate his specios. A gieat change has taken plac ? since tho'e days. Woman now takes her position in the front rank of authors, and well does she sustain her part. Indeed tho production of Harriet Btecher Stowe, " Uncle Tom's Cab in," has been read and admired by more persons than any bock cf the present age which had its origin in the brain of one of the lords of creation." So complete has been woman's triumph in this field of use fulness, that not one among all the old fogies can now be found who wouTd consent lo abol ish the privilege which has been granti d her to use the press. Indeed, should this privi lege be withdrawn, the literatuie c f the pres ent day would be gloomy and sterile as a bachelor's hall. With these facts, and a thousand others b( fore us, how can we reaf onably object to woman's education in the usi ful ns well as the ornamental ? She has entered upm no duiies without success, and all her efToil have brought honor upon her head. There can, then, be no haim in letting her reach j still beyond the limits now prescribed, if iu-1 deed man has the right or Ihe power lo giant ; these privileges. j We remarked thnt nt cestity was the sourco j from whence woman would develop herpow- ' en. i be disposition of man to grasp i fu r wealth, even at the sacrifice cf the heahh, happiness, and lives of ir.nocent and almost helpless fjmales, has compelled them to open unto themselvi s the door3 of general useful ness which have for centuries been closed aga'nst them. Such is now her pot i ion, tha poor woman is the most completely help less of all earthly being3. Society confines so many of them within such a small sphere, thai they can each have but liltlo to do, and such is the competition that the pay would not keep them comfortable could they be employed constantly. To be respectable in the eyes of community, she must conform to certain rules of dress, which her position en tirely fuibids, and therefure she resorts to vice, crime, and every conceivable device for I that appearance in dress which is more pleas- j ing in the eyes of community than a virtuous and honest heart. j Every philanthropist, thcrjfjro, nrutYii with delight the breaking of tl.o?e shackles which enslave woman, nnd lrjoice in the ex pansion of lur field of labor and usefulness. Hence we have watched with much interest! and satisfaction the growth of the Female Medical College of Pennsylvania, located at Philadelphia. Through the politeness of the faculty, we have received the Seventh Annual Announcement, for the Session of 185G-67. The catalogue of students, the remarks of the Dean, and the appeal of the Corpora tors, all give evidence of encouraging scccess. The Dean says : " The demand for well educated female physicians is increasing rapidly, and eveiy ttliere a high and honorable rank in the pro fession has been readily accorded to all who prove themselves worthy of it. Our desire is not lo publish annually a lung libt of gradu ates, but lo have thos,c who do go forth as the alumnce of this school, so thoiuughly fit ted for their otlice as to claim uud receivo at once the confidence und respect of the com munity and the- profession. " The curriculum of study in this institu tion, and tho requirements of candidates lor graduation, are in nil respects as high as those of the best medical schools iu this coun try. The Faculty aim to raise, not to lower, the standard of medical attainment. It is their constant desire to be able to add to the moral, scientific, and intellectual dignity of the prufession; and they must earnestly pro test against licensing the ignorant or other wise unqualified of either sex lo astsumt) its office and responsibilities. , The accommodations fur boarders in Phila delphia are. unk.iipabsrd by thoso of buy oil er city in the Union ; and ihu Dean will t..ke plcasuiu in procuring comfortable, boai ding houses fur tuch students as may request Imn to do to. They will be thus enabled to re pair immediately to their homes on arriving in the city. The seventh annual session will commence on Wednesday, October 1st, 1856, and con tinue five months. TERMS.

We give the "Appeal of the Corpora tors " (nlire, as it is brief, pointed, and of in terest in th department of this new field of usefulness just being opened to woman : The Corporators of the Female Medical College of Pennsylvania, appeal to the friends of humanity in behalf of this Institution and the cause it represents. They regaid the medical education of woman ns a necessity cf the age, and a way-mark of the advancement of n refined civilization. They find the demand for female physicians wide-spread and increasing, and regard the study and practice of medicines as peculiarly adapted to the nice per-epth ns of womnn, and the tenderness and refined graces of her na ture. They consider that woman, as a wife and mother, pie-eminently needs a clear under slantling of the functions of the human b dy j ana tne means oi preserving health ; and thai. high-toned nnd intelligent female physicians. from their relations to their sex, must be most important insttnmentalities in impattin? such knowledge, where it is most needed and will do the must good. It is well known that there is a vast amount of suffering among women, which is h it with out relief from the shrinking delicacy of its victims, nnd it is therefore a demand of hu manity that woman should be put in posses sion of the riquisite knowledge to administer the required treatment in such cases. They also desiro a scientific education for woman, because it will furnish her with hon orable and prli table employment giving her a new sphere of usefuluess and happiness, where duty nnd the sympathies of her nature lead her; in ihe chambers cf the sick and suffering. Feeling, therefore, that this is a grcntrairse intimately connected with the improvement and happiness of society, they appeal lo gen-! erom and tiue men and ivumcn for aid und co-operation. Philadelphia is peculiarly adapted to the locution of a ci Ilece of this charae'er. It is the seat of medical learning iu America, nnd facii'ries for a medical education l.e-re. nie superior to those of any o.her ci'y on Ibis The College has firmly nnd bravely out- lived tho opposition and difficulties that al ways attend new enterprises, and especially innovations upon time honored usugt s and, after six years of tiial, it nny, we think, f iir lv claim to be an established medical school. The Professois have lnboied with much self denial and great pecuniary sacrifice ; for it is well knon, that in the ear y years of an in stitution like this the expenses must b great er than the receipts from the students. The burden of these expenses has heretorore been borne by a generous few, but the cor porators believe the t'lne has now fully arriv ed when they may call upon alt th i liiemlsof the ni-tlical education of women, lo ceintribu'.i of their little or their nbundai.ee, for the sup port of the colli ge, net! its endonniei.t with a fund comuieiisuiate wi ll its scope and pur-po-es, They eh sire to place t' is colh gi !he firs', n.edical school of this character uf the sani! extent in ihe world on a permanent basis . and wi.-h tlereforo to endow it with a fund which will place it be ond the Coniitgency uf accident. .

Louis Napoleon has purchased "U his own account n large lot of ground ti'h'.eeiii square meters fronting on the Boulevard Mazes, in tin- Faubourg St. Al.toie. This ground is divided into lots, on which houses will be built nt l is expense. The two main objscts to be had in view in their construc tion are comfort for the occupants and cheap ness for the purchasers ; for ns fast as the buildings are completed they will be sold at auction the purchaser, doubtless, binding himself to the fulfillment of reasonable con ditions in the interest of the tenants. The purpose of the experiment is tu offer tangible, visible proofs to capitalists that they can in vest their money profitably in comfortable dwellings for workmen, nnd lhat workmen may be better lodged and at less prices than at present. Vacant lots will be ceded at cost price to persons who will engage lo build within a certain lime and in conlurmny to the geneia) plan of the block. Wiiich h Which. A very curious instance uf coulusion has taken place in a family in Ainany. A mothernnu her daughter were confined on Ihe same day, each having a litle son. In the confusion of the moment both babies were placed i.i one cradle, and to the consternation of the mothers, when the youngsters were taken from the cradle, they were unable lo tell which was the mother's and which was the daughter's son a matter which, of course, must ever remain a myste ry. The family is in great distress over the atfair ; und if these buys are ever able to tell who their fathers are, they will never be smart enough to designate their mothers. Death fkom the Bits of a Rattle Sneke Mr. Henry Davis, Jr., of Bullock county, (Geo.) was bitten by a large rattlesnake while walking a few hundred yards fiom his house one day hist week and died from i s effects. He was bitten in the fe.renoon, nnd was not found for some time after, when he was so near death as to reudc-r all remedies unavailable. After he was bitten he corded his leg with his suspenders, and then killed the reptile. Ho proceeded towards his house a short distance, and, finding that he could go no further, hung his hat upon a bush und lay down, where be was found. He was much respected, and has left a wife and some five or six children and numerous friends to mourn his loss. Georgian. Bolts this Ticket. The Worcester (Mass. ) Palladium, published by Hon. S. C.

Pure Air. j I , j ; j drawing fiom it one half its exygt n, and re continent, placing it with the same quintiiy of carbonic j j J The article which follows, we think con tains a very profitable lesson, for almost every one : and hope it will be perused by our readers : and that each one will give It a candid hearing. We know not the pin-, ion of our readers ;; but it appears to u, lo be a subject of great importance, for air is essential to the animal Bystim to sustain life ; nnd if the air is not pure, it will produce disease, and disease will eventually cause death. This subject has held a prominent place in our minds fur some time past j and con templated the preparation of on article on the same ; but the following from Miss Beecher's Letters to the peoplu on Health nnd Happiness, so nearly meets our views that we adopt it in preference to any we could wiite at this time : This topic tnkes the lead of all others in importance and difficulty. The fact that the Greeks live mot of the year out-doors, and that in their houses they never breathe any but p ire air, gave them an advantage in de velopintr the beauty, strength, nnd henlth of their chihlien, which it would be difficult to secure with our climate and habits. And the steady and equable climate of the old coun tries, which has led their inhabitants to out door life, nnd thus to rtcuuire vigorous con- KtJ'ul'Ons. gives them nlso a great advantige " . .ufc IHV.-U um uuncumes, can ue rnei anu overcome. Every man who is a householder should be sure that every member of his family breathes pure air, tot onh all day but all night, by this simple arrangement : Iu every room of his house let at least one window be let down at the top two inches, and one door havs nn opening of two inches over ihe top. Let this be done in such a way that no person can al ter it. For if ventilators are fixed so that they can be closed, they will be, in the ma jurity cf cases, by the ignorant, or limid, or lulsely economical. A house thus arranged will rrouire more fuel to warm it, but the additional expense of mis win not. De a tenth part of that which wold re;ultfrom the loss of labor and health consequent on the debility and disease always resulting, inure or less, lrum the baouual in Lii.K.iiii vi luijjuiu air. Iu a house thus arranged, stoves though less healthful than open tires would s:ill be tar lss injurious than they now are. Anu litre one common prim-lice nrr.inst " night-air," resulting solely ltoni ignorance, must be met. It hi s been shown that every pair of lungs vitiates a l.oasl ead of air evi rv hour, bv itli- acid. Now, at night, the inmates of a house must tltuer urealbe pure, mr, tint constantly flows in from without and thus diives oil. the impure air within, or tiny must km p on breathing ovt r and over again the confined air of the- house, that cVt ry hour grows more and more pjiso iom and debilitaiiiif. Toe-popular objections to niht air are, thai it is cold, or damp, or l eaded i.h unuealih ful mia mata. Bat if a person has bed-cl"tii- ing enou.'h lo keep warm, the colder the tiir i ihe better evc-iy way. And if the e.ir isdaii p. so ns to lend r the aluio-phere of the room damp al.-o, slid no hiinu is done, morided the Irjiy istrjl irorui.

A' damp ni.,ht never can harm the m.i (l-liHt person if every part e f the body is covi n il tr as to be duly warm. As to tli- i !!' ct of damp air t.ikvu into ti t' lungs well ii.uc.iti-tl people know lhat there is no lime when lit- re- is more water held siisp-nded i i the- annus- phsere than in a hoi cumi s Ci Id this d imp lay. V hen the mr be- bc-doIll"S sensible to tlu eye and feelir-', but there is leally nut so much natter inhaled into the lun-'s in breath ing a cold, damp air, as in breathing a waitn anil apparently dry atmosphere.

III CJUise, where lungs arj diseased, any ex.. "ernes in temperature ninst be avoid ed. As to unheiiltl.fiil miasmata in the night air, nothing can be w orse than ihe exhalations of decaying bodies, as sent forth from ihe lungs and skin of sleepers. It is prcisedy the same evil as is found in proximity to giave yards and decaying carrion. The effluvium from the lun s and skin is precisely the same as lhat from carrion, only mure diluted by the atmosphere. Those who have entered the pent-up sleeping room of persons who do not wash their skins or breathe a pure air, very well understand the close resemblance. In ihe summer season, while vejgetalion is in life, it is true lhat the leaves of all trees j and plants arc rcspireing : giving out oxygen un,l l.ltn,.

But this respiration of vcclable n ..lure out 1 1 nfnnr dwellings, rend l! all the ttHuvia of decaying vegetation at any pe uf theyenr, are never so effective in des eeriod estroy- ing the healthliilne-s of the air around our dwellings, as the lungs of the inhabitants within them. Let it also be crnsidered that tho air we do breathe unless the bouse is air tight, which no house can be must be night air, more or less mixed with the portion which has been breathed over nnd over again through the day and evening. So thatevery body eoe breathe night-air, or what is worse. These things are presented in ordor to re move that baleful prejudice and fear that so many ignorant persons indulge toward their best friends, pure air and water. To return : let every person who has charge oi a lamiiy make some sure arrangement thus to secure to every person in their house an abundence of pure uir for their lungs and skin both by day and night, and the grand cause that, above all others, isgardually deteriorat ing the vigor, health, and beauty of the American people, will disappear. Add to thin, appropriate care that all tho scojI rooms iu the land have the same ar rangements made lo provide pure air for the pupils. Keep the tops of thw windows down belli in the winter and summer, and pay for tile increase of fuel instead of Ihe doctor and grave-digger. In every community whero there are colleges and seminaries, as well as the public schools, there ought to be inspect ors appointed, the same as other civil officers, to go around and see whatever any parent or teacher is poisoning the rising generation willi impure air, Ob, how many families, nnd schools, and. boarding establishments, have i come within mycucut La which this evil, even to this hour, is perpetuated I No parents, no guardians' of the young, should cyer retire to rest till fully assured that every one under their care is furnished wifh the full supply of pure air for the night. Anil nil employers, in all kinds of business, should bt taught that they are committing a great sin against the life and welfare of ihose they employ, if they force them lo labor in impure air. Every minister of the gospel should, in the first place, take care that his own spiritual concerns, and those of his hear ers, are not checked and interrupted by brnina stupified by bad air ; and ne xt, he should teach his people their obligations in this mat ter, Loth to themselves and all under their care.
