ajt^asssMMr^sra JMWAIi FRIDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1843. & TO DELINQUENTS* Now is tbe Uiae to settle your arrearage®. We •will receive Wheat, Pork, Beef, Beeswax, Poultry, ^&c. at'the highest market price, in payment of debts due this office. Those who neglect t3 avail them selves of this offer, may expect an early demand of *Sthe caah. We MUST pay ocn debts, and to enable fait to do this, otbeis most pay us. We have come -to tbe conclusion that we cannot live on wind, and -t&tecmined to try it no longer. V THE t*EG MSEhM TtTMB* Springer,) prevented its organization until Wednesday, 6th inst. when Ihe Governor's Message was sent in. There being a tie vole between Messrs. Teas and Springer, the elec tion of a presiding officer was posposted un til the second Monday in January next. Till that time, the Chair is occupied by Mr. Spring er. On Thursday, 7th inst. the otber offices were filled, as follows: B. F. Wallace, of Henry, Secretary, Charles Madera, of Des Moines, Assistant, John W. Patterson, Sergeant-at-Arms, John Lefever, Messenger, Wm. Dubois, Fireman. Nothing, of interest, in the proceedings of the Council, there being no appointment of standing committees. In our last, we made mention of the choice of Mr. Carleton, as Speaker of the House.— Upon being conducted to the Chair, he thus neatly and appropriately addressed the House: GENTLEMEN :—Through your kindness and partiality, 1 have been selected to discharge the duties connected wi:h the high and im portant stalioH of Speaker of the House. And whilst I acknowledge, with feelings of grati tude, the distinguished honor conferred upon me, allow me to say, that I cannot but feel, that I shall fall fir bnlow the expectations of those whose kindness has placed me here. Called for the first time in my life to pre side over the deliberations of a body of this kind, and with but a limited experience in leg islative proceedings, I cannot promise you, neither I trust will you expect, that familiarity with points of order, or that readiness in the despatch of business, which is so necessary to facilitate your deliberations, and so well cal culated to render easy and pleasant the dis charge of your duties. Of this much, howev er, gentlemen, lean assure you, that in my in tercourse with you, in the relation which I now sustain, it shall be my endeavor so to act as to promote unanimity of feeling, and the great end for which we have assembled to gether,—the welfare and prosperity of our growing Territory. Gathered together, as we are, from every portion of the Territory, and representing, as we do, different local interests, it is but natu ral to expect, that amid the clash of conflicting claims, occasional storms will arise, but I trust, should such be the case, that they will but 6erve to purify our mental vision, and en able ua to look beyond the interest of our own immediate neighborhood, to the still more commanding interest of all. Law should be made to operate equally, not partially—the common good of the Territory should be studied in all our proceedings, and upon this altar should we be willing at all times to ofTer up our sectional feelings and sectional interests. Let us remember too, that the legislation of our infancy is to tell upon our riper years, and it is important that we should so legislate that when this young and rising Territory comes to take her stand among the States of our glorious Union, she may be folly prepared for as brilliant a career as that of those which have preceded her. Let her commence her race unclogged—-with her en ergies untrammelled, and it will require no prophet to tell her future destiny. There is, gentlemen, a high responsibility resting upon us. Let us manfully meet it—. that when we come to leave these seats and mingle again with our constituents, we may meet them with a consciousness of having dis charged our duty. Again, gentlemen, allow me to return tny thanks for the honor conferred upon me, and again allow me to assure you, that it will be my study in all things to render myself worthy of your confidence. On the 6th, the House was chiefly occupi ed in arranging preliminary matters, unimpor tant to the reader. Mr. Rogers introduced a bill to repeal the charter of the Miners1 Bank of Dubuque, which was read and ordered to be printed. On the morning of the 7th inst. the Speak er announced the appointment of the standing committees, as follows On the Judiciaryr-Messrs. Thompson, Ba ker, Gritnes, Rogers and Mitchell. On Common Schools—Messrs. Bonney, He bard, Wright, Foley and Robb. On Internal Improvements—Messrs. Brier ]y, Wilson, Borland, Johnson and Brophy. On Claims—Messrs. Nowlin, Foley, Steele, Smyth and McCleary. On Military Affairs—Messrs. Baker, Rog ers, Mitchell, Bonney and Nowlin. On Enrolled Bills—Messrs. Hebard and Robb. On Engrosed BiUs^Messrs.

Foley, Culbettson, Steei'e, McCiearv and omytb. 4° iJssayste 44 s We have, as yet, (Thursday morning,) r© reived the proceedings of the the Legislature up to Thursday of last week, only. The contin ued absence of Geo. Gehon, and the tenacity .jwitb which the members of the Council stood out for their favorite candidates for President of that body, (Maj. J. B. Teas and Francis dry citizens of Clinton county, asking for the passage of a law providing for tbe relocation of the seat of justice of that coonty. So fre quently has our legislature been called upon to re-locate, or authorize the people to change county seats, that past experience should dic tate to the legislature ihe necessity of the pas sage of a general law on the subject, so fra med as to leave the matter to the people, and guarding against its reference to them, when once located, except for good reasons shown. Mr. Brophy also gave notice that'.hc would, on some future day, introduce a bill to repeal an act for the prevention of certain immoral practices,*' but more generally known as the Sunday Law." Prior to the passage of this law, we expressed our opinion, both as to the justice and propriety of the passage of such a law, and we have as yet seen nothing to in duce us to change that opinion. Aside from what we conceive to be its encroachments up on the natural rights of man, we believe the enactment and enforcement of such a law would be productive of greater evils in socie" ty than those it is intended to suppress. We would, by no means, suffer the evil disposed part of community.to molest, insult or offend the professed christian in his devotions on the Sabbath, with impunity, but would be the last to excuse or palliate such an outrage. The law, as ii now stands, were it enforced, would do more injury to the cause of religion than its friends can hope for it to accomplish for morality, by remaining on our statute books. So far, the law has done no injury, public opinion being so strong against it, that, so far as our knowledge extends, not a single com plaint has been lodged against any person for a violation of the Sabbath, while they have been as frequent since its passage as before.— Is the question asked, why it has been inope rative for a whole year! The reasonJs plain. No one whose habits are likely to subject him to the penalties of that law, would be willing to run the risk of being made a victim himself, by lodging a complaint against his neighbor, and the professed christian, who looks upon the violation of the Sabbath as an offence a gainst morality and religion, has too high a feeling of regard for his religion, to set the of fender against both^him and the religion which prompts it, by becoming iiis accuser. If en forced, we should see neighbor arrayed against neighbor, ready at any and at all times to take revenge for the injury they supposes to have been done them. As each and every one Is It be judged, on the day of final reckoning, by the deeds done by them alone, and none are held responsible for the acts of others, christians should be sat isfied with their own piety, and if by argu ment and reason they'"cannot convert their neighbor, why resort to law to restrain the bo dy, whfle the mind is .unchanged It is by reason, and reason alone, and not by law, that a community can be rendered morel, and not by legal restrictions and penalties. If it is not an assumption of legislative pow er to restrain man from doing that on the Sab bath day which is not unlawful on other days, is it not within the province of the legislature to prescribe for us a form for religious exer cises, and attach penalties to the ncn-perform ance of them 7 If we are compelled by law to observe the first day of the week as a day of rest, we compel professed christians of the various denominations to refrain frcm labor on the day we call the Sabbath, while their arti cles of faith compels them to observe another. Is there any justice in this 1 To regulate the Sabbath, by legislation, further than the pro tection of worshipping congregations, is, in our opinion, an infringement upon the rights of the people, as unwise as it is unwarranted, and we hope that Mr. Brophy will succeed in his efforts to wipe it from our statute books. £7" MIKE WALSH, for many years an active customer at elections in the city of N. York, but a blackgurd bully at best, finding that the Democratic party bad too much respect for it self and the people to bestow office upon such a creature as himself, wheeled round, some time since, and established a paper in that city, in which he abused the prominent Dem ocrats at a shameful rate, charging them with divers misdemeanors. No sooner bad he 44 ,obo J!r. Brophy presented UM jtetjtieft «f,sun 44de- fined bis position," than he became a great man among the Whigs, and his sayings were heralded forth by their presses, as matters of great importance. At a late term of Court in that city, he was nonviefiul of several libels, fined, &c. and tor one upon a cooper, he was sentenced to two month imprisonment in the penitentiary at Blackwell's Island. The sen tence appears to have had a serious effect up on him, as the following from the Courier will show: Tbe order from the Sheriff for the convey ance of Mike Walsh to Blackwell's Island was delivered on Saturday, and he was accor dingly taken from his cell for the purpose of being conveyed to the carriage used for con veying prisoners. As he was passing through the keeper s room, be drew a pistol which he had somehow procured, with the intention of shooting himself, but it was taken from him before he could accomplish his purpose. We learn, also, that while on board the boat cros sing to Blackwell's Island, he made another attempt to destroy himself by jumping over board, but be was dragged on board, and being again foiled, he was conveyed aross in safe ty."—N. Y. Courier. MORE SIAMESE TWIN MONSTEBS.—Two children have been born in Lexington, Indiana, with tbe breast bone united the whole length. INTERESTING TO BLACKSMITHS A Mr. Brook, of Virginia has invented and taken out a patent for a Stiiker for blacksmiths, which will enabiC one man at the anvil to do as much work as isp now can. GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE.—This document will be found on tbe first page of to-day's paper.— The Governor recommends a renewal of the application to Congress for an approjNlfpea for clearing out the obstructions to navtyltion in the Missippi river, and appears sanguine of success, now that the new States are fully rep resented in Congress. He next recommends the passage of a law providing for an expression of the will of the people, in reference to the subject of State Government, expressing the opinion that our numerical strength is now amply sufficient to entitle us to all the advantages arising from a participation ir. the government of the affairs of the Union, and that it is to our interest to prepare for an early admission into the Union. In this opinion we fully concur with His Ex cellency, and think too speedy steps cannot be taken for (his purpose. From all parts of the Territory, we hear that scores who, at the last test, were afraid to assume the responsi bilities of a State Government, are now favor able to it. Had we the strength in the Senate to which we will be entitled on admission, and a vote in the House of Representatives, the repeated petitions of the west for what is undeniably its right, would no longer be deni ed, but meted out to us. The Governor finds cause of complaint in the manner tn which the militia law has been executed. We believe that a complete organ ization of the militia of our Territory should be kept up, and returns made of the strength of each division, at stated times, but for the life of us, we can perceive no advantage ari sing from drill musters, as practiced under our present system nor can it be rendered more serviceable until qualifications for the dis charge of military duties is made a requisite, before promotion, at head quarters. At pres ent, military duty is performed with the great est reluctance, by a handful out of every com ny, and the few who fall into ranks, instead of striving to become skilled in the use of arms, are playing pranks, for the amusement of the lookers-on, and tbe vexation of their officers. Unless the system is revised, and some of the objections to it removed, the law may as well be repealed. It is to be regretted that tbe ^cause df edu cation, and the means for its promotion, pla ced in our hands by the general government, have been 60 much neglected. The recom mendation of the Governor, for the protection of the School Lands, should be carried into effect. The Governor concludes'by recommending a restriction of tbe^expenses, of the present session, to the amount appropriated by Con gress. The suggestion is a good ooe. Ma ny of the present creditors of the Territory, to perform the services authorized by the Le gislature, have been compelled to incur heavy expenses and liabilities, which makes the de lay in receiving remuneration opecafe bard up on them. IRISH REPEAL.—Daniel O'Connel has issu ed a second address to the people of Ireland, in a dauntless spirit, but recommending a re sort to no harsh -means. In an address deliv ered in St. Audeon's Ward, he made the fol lowing declaration: 44 Give me six months of .perfect peace, and I'll give my head on a block, if at the end of that time you have not a parliament in Coflfcire Green!" The trial of Mr. O'Connel would commence in a short time. The grand jury was for a wboleday occupied in reading the indictments, which covered the enormous space of thirty three skins of parchment. Mr. O'Connell defends himself. WISCONSIN MARINE AND FIRE INSU RANCE COMPANY.—The Ottawa Free Tra der is out against the issues of (his denom ination and to our view he Bakes out a pretty clear case, that the time for a *wild cat' crash is near at hand. The Trader' occupies over a column in giving the rea sons for the opinion which he advances, and they are such as can leave but little or no doubt that the day U not far distant when holders of Wiscocsin Marine and Fire Insurance Company' shinplasters will find that there are no* visible means' to redeem them. We presume this 4 4 word to the wise' will be sufficient. It will not be necessary for us to quote the whole ar ticle of the Ottawa paper:—the following paragraph, containing facts that aie not, though they ought to be, generally known must suffice Peoria Press. The institution has no legal existence. It is true, there was years ago a company bearing the name assumed by this institu tion incorporated in Wiscoisin with pow er to insure property and receive deposits, but this is an entirely diferent concern. That had its locality in Wisconsin—this is located in Chicago, Illinois. That was an insurance company, restricted to that alone—this is a bank, issuing paper, and dealing in discounts and exchanges. This is not, then, the institution incorporated by the Wisconsin legislature under its name. Nor will it be pretended that it exists by virtue of any law of Illinois. Its existence here is in violation of our con stitution. It has then no legal existence.' By the New Orleans papers reclved last evening, it appears that England has been in trigueing against Texas, and that o«r Govern ment has sent a fleet to the latter country to protect our rights. Texas must be annexed to this Union, or England will carry out her de signs on our Southern frontier. A RICH FEE.—It is said that Daniel Webster, who is retained as counsel for the heirs of- the late Stephen Girard, in a suit against the city of Philadelphia, is to receive a fee of fifty thousand dollars if he *1*successful. FREE TKADK IN ENGLAND.—The election of a member Parliament in the city of London, to succeed Sir Matthew Wood, deceased, to take place on the 21st ult. The competitors were Mr. Baring, (Troy,) and Mr. Pattison, (Liberal and Free-trade.) The result will reach us by the next arrival. Much impor tance was attached to it in the public rriind, as indicating the progress of liberal opinions es pecially in matters of trade. Pattison was en thusiastically supported by the Anti-corn-law League. The London Morning Chronicle is of opinion that most of the elections in Eng land will hereafter turn upon tbe question of free trade. It says 44 Elections are destined henceforth to as snrne entirely a new aspect and character.— The public mind, moving onwards to one grand object, passes over mere party distinc tions, personal claims, and local animosities. It is ready still for 44 44 44 £7" The weather, for the past week, has been unusually warm, for the season. The at mosphere is now warm, the ice on the shores of the river fast melting, and the channel so free from running ice that boats might pass without trouble. THE RIGHTS OF WOMEN.—A bill has passed the Senate of Tennessee by a ve ry large majority, to secure to married women the use and enjoyment of their own property. The justice of such a measure seems at once so apparent, that it is a matter of wonder why it is now for the first time to be established by law.— The principles of the English common law have been so deeply grafted into our jurisprudence, that this and similar meas ures have met with but little countenance in most of the States because of the great and important changes which they were likely to produce in one of the fundamen tal rules of that law. This sort of oppo sition, however, is the fruit of prejudice, and justice has been denied solely to pre vent an innovation on long established usa ges. Under the civil law, which prevails in Louisiana, no distinction is made as to the right of women to their property. Several years since, Judge Hertell, when a member of the Assembly of this State, made strenuous efforts to reform this particular feature of our laws. For some reason or other, in the face of the most able and convincing report which he made on that occasion, his bill was defeat ed. The measure has not again been in troduced to the legislature, but we hope that at the next session some members will be just and bold enough to undertake a thorough investigation of the subject, and insist upon such action as the impor tance of the case demands.—N. Y. Post The Nashville Union remarking upon the course of the Tennessee Legislature, says: We ought not to refuse to do right, be* cause it has been customary to do wrong. Common justice demands that every per son, male as well as female, should have the absolute control of whatever estate he or she is lawfully possessed why then should it cease to be just for a woman to retain all her property, when she contracts marriage? What is there in the contract or the relation that should compel her in sanity to lose her hold npon her own Under the old law, which has been mis called the perfection of wisdom,* how fliany worthy women have been reduced was boot and saddle," but not at the call of any temporary expediency of the hour. Rising out of the ruins of political fraud and party schemes, may be seen a new ele ment, linking together individuals hitherto ut terly divergent in their political feelings. In telligent Conservatives are no longer kept in awe, by the vulgar fears of 44 letting in the Whigs." Crotchetty Radicals no longer ex pect more from a Peel than a Melbourne ad ministration. The delusion is utterly gone and instead of wasting time in unavailing re grets, the mass of the electoral community are preparing to atone for the great error of 1841, by seeking objects higher, better, and nobler, than the miserable notion of turning out one ministry, or upholding another. The great bond of union is free trade and that is now sought with an earnestness com mensurate with its greatness. It is fitting that, in this new movement, London should take the lead. Free trade is the harbinger of so much that is vast and important, that we verily believe the defection of the metropolis would be stamped on the age as one of the most serious and enormous crimes. Without London, free trade will be carried with it, carried in the most appropriate and triumphant way. Next Saturday will, therefore, be a day literally, truly, and without exaggerated phrase, big with the fate of England. On that day will rest the decision whether or no the triumph of free trade will be immediate, or the result of a protracted struggle. On that day may depend the fate of the successful re tention or permant closing of markets still open to our commerce, our industry, and our skill. On that day may depend the question whether free trade may come in time, or come too late. Much, theiefore, rests with the citizens of London. We should be sorry to see the elec tion carried by some meie measuring-cast ma jority. Free trade in tbe election of Mr. Pat tison, should have its triumphant hundreds the voice of power. Apathy, negligence, in difference in any elector would costitute a pos itive offence in the sight of God and man.— He who permits the fate of an administration to kick the beam when the fate cf an empire and of millions is in the opposite balance, is, indeed, a driveller of the worst description." —Journal of Commerce. ItT^By the Caledonia, the result of the elec tion in London has been received, and is a. complete Free Trade triumph. The vote stood, for Pattison, 7,532 Raring. G.3IV7, being a majority of 165 for the Free Trade candidate. Were the mass of the people in tht country allowed to vote, the Free Trade party would have triumphed by an overwhelming majori ty but there the laboring classes, who are most interested in the triumph of the party, are excluded from the ballot-box. If no undue importance was attached '.3 the result in London, by the Chronicle, it is a tri umph fraught with the deepest interest to mil lions of her oppressed laborers. from competency to beggary how many have been the victims of worthless fortune hunters how many have suffered cruel privations from miserly husbands how many have been left penniless widows, their property being taken to pay their husband's debts? The law now proposed simply provides that the wife shall have the same undisturbed control of her own estate after mamiage, which she had be fore. It prevents her property from pas sing out of her hands, on marriage, by mere operation of law, without her con sent. It elevates woman one step higher in the scale of being, and gives her a rank which in all christian countries she has proved herself to deserve. And besides all this, the measure injures no one—it take from no man any thing that belongs to him—it will prevent frauds and the smuggling of property—and last, though not least important in its consequences, it will diminish the number of old maids, who now refuse to marry lest their effects should be squandered On Saturday afternoon (the 21st ult.,) the clerk of one of the most extensive Nail Factories in this city, laid upon the seat of each workman a letter, stating that he had received instructions from one of the proprietors to reduce the wages of all the hands in their employ twenty per cent. The nailors, finding that their employers would rather close their establishment than recede from their resolution, tamely submitted, and on the following Monday went to their work as usual.—Pittsburgh Spirit of the Age. The above is a sjngle but forcible illus tration of the tendency of the protective policy to accumulate wealth in the hands of a favored few, to the neglect and detri ment of the many. Numerous additional instances of similar conduct on the part of the heads of Eastern manufacturing estab lishments, since the enactment of the pre sent protective tariff, might be adduced, but the one given will suffice. It exhibits the selfishness and cupidity of those who make the most noise about protecting home industry, low wages, &c., and shows that it is capital, and not labor, which is sought to be and ia reality is protected. The manufacturing interests of the Uni ted Slates, it may safely be asserted, nev er were in a more flourishing condition than they are at present, and never were the times more favorable to the realization of cash profits by the manufactures. The proofs of this is found in the sudden rise in the value of factory stocks, the erection of new establishments, and the readiness and indeed avidity with which capital seeks investment in that peculiar branch of industry. Indeed it would be difficult to conceive how it could be otherwise when we reflect upon the advantages secured to them in the possession ot the entire home market, and the low prices of the raw ma terial, provisions, &c. which enables them partially to compete with the manufactu ring establishments of the world in the markets of the East, and even in those of England itself. The only thing wanting to enable them to undersell, at a profit, even in Europe, the cotton fabrics of any other portion of the world, is a xeduction in the cost of labor and this, it would seem, they are about setting themselves at work seriously to effect. The efforts of the employing manufac turers at such a period, and under such circumstances, to 4* Aift TIGHT STOVES.—Dr. Bates pub lishes in the Salem Observer, some re marks on the subject of the temperature caused by the air tight stove3, which have been recently introduced in St. Louis, that are well worthy of the attention of all who use them. 44 He recommends that a ther mometer be kept in a room warmed by them, rather than trust the fa!acy of one's feelings for its regulation.—The tempera ture, to preserve health, should not exceed 65 degrees. If a comfortable warmth is not secured at this temperature, it is better to put on more clothing than to increase the heat. These remarks apply to every other method of warming rooms. A tem perature of 70 degrees will debilitate a person in health. In the sick room it is often 10 deg. higher.—No wonder then that the sick are often so long prostrated. The marvel is, that they ever get well. A room warmed by a stove should be well ventilated, or the atmosphere will very roon become impure, and nrotftoii dis "—St* Louis ArieL #»k~ ft is said that an emin'eat artist lately painted a snow etorm so nilural, that be eaught a severe cold by sitting near it with hts coat off. POVERTY. As poverty lce!?an- 4 make hast to get rich" by reducing the wages allowed to the op eratives in thair employ even below the prices paid when their business was in a languishing condition are not only inexcu sable but excrable. Upwards of seven hundred thousand persons were employed in manufactures in the United States in 1840, and the number at present would fall but little short of a million. Of this aggregate at least nineteen twentieths are laborers and it has always been consider ed some slight mitigation of the evils of .the system that the benefits resulting to this large class approached IO something near equality, or at least that they were felt by all in proportion to the amount of bounties collected. Even this, however, proves to be a delusion.'
