if. i it LIFE'S BETTER MOMENTS. Life has its moments Of beauty and bloom ; But they hang like sweet rosea On the edge of the tomb. Blessings they bring us As lorely aa brief; They meet ua when happy, And leave as in grief. Hues of the morning. Tinging the sky, Come on the sun beams, And off with them fly. Shadow of evening Hang soft on the ehore. Darkness enwraps them, TCe see them no more. So life's better moments In brilliance appear, Dawning in beauty Our journey to cheer. Round U3 they linger Like shadows of even; Would that we, like them, .Might melt into heaven ! Address of the Whig State Committee. The State Committee appointed by the "Whig Convention at Harrisburg, deem it their duty to state to their fellow citizens of Pennsylva nia the principles involved in the approaching contest, and by which it will, in their opinion, be mainly decided. They mean to speak earn cstly and explicitly, and very few words are needed to define their views. Never, in the history of Pennsylvania, was there a clearer and stronger line drawn never a more distinct definition of principle. Questions of moral and social responsibility, of infinite moment to us and our posterity, have arisen, and the opponents of the National and State Adminis trations in Pennsylvania are united on the com mon ground of resolute opposition to section al strife, encouraged and stimulated as it has been by the policy and conduct of the Admin istration at Washington, in the interferance of the Government in controlling the legislation of Congress to this end, and to the further ex tension of the institution of domestic slaverv in the territorial domain of the nation. On these national questions, the Whig can didates appeal to the people of Pennsylvania with confidence. Their opinions are those which Pennsylvania asserted in ancient times, and which still are in the hearts of her people. Those opinions have never been offensively expressed. Had the public mind been allow ed to erjoy the repose which, less than two years ago, existed throughout the land, or had a spirit of forbearance been manifested by those who have the most reason to invoke it, the contest which now agitates the country would Lave been averted. The passage of the Nebraska bill bv Congress at the instance of the Administration, and through its undisguis ed influence, and the repeal in express terms f an ancient statute, plighting the nation's word of honor that the Western territory was to be forever exempt from slavery and the do mestic slave trade, compell the Whig party of the North, and especially the Whig party of Pennsylvania, to break the silence they might otherwise have kept, and to speak out again, in language not to be misunderstood, their an cient and fixed opinions. To the doctrines of the act of 1780, which re'ieved us by constitutional means from a grevious social evil to the great ordinance of 1787, in its full scope and all its benificent principles to a resolute determination to ef fect the absolute and entire repeal of the ag gressive portions of the Nebraska bill to the protection of the personal rights of every hu man being under the Constitution of Pennsyl vania, and the Constitution of the L'nited States by maintaining inviolate the trial by ju ry and the writ of habeas corp us to the as sertion of the due rights of the States, of the North as well as of the South, and to the integ rity of the Union, never, so much endangered as when a wanton wrong is inflicted to these principles the Whig party of Pennsylvania and its candidates are solemnly pledged. On this strong ground they are content to stand, and nd to the support of these principles we in rite the cooperation of every freeman in Penn sylvania. The Congress of the United States, soon about to disperse, and the administration of the general government have, in the passage of the. Nebraska bill, (the only measure of the present session,) and in their criminal neglect of the great interests of the nation, and espe cially of Pennsylvania, made this single issue, aad o it, till the will of the people shall de cide it, we are content to meet them. It is not an issue that we have made. It is forced upon us, and we meet it calmly and resolutely. - We arraign the National Administration aided and abetted by the present State Execu tive for in opinion and action they are iden tified before the people of Pennsylvania. We hold them responsible for the revival of sectional agitation. They have, by the abro gation of the Missouri line, by which, north of a certain parallel of latitude, slavery was forever prohibited, aroused a spirit of resist ance to aggression which it.may be difficult to appease. t They have done this wantonly, and on them rests the responsibility. We urge upon our friends throughout the State, in eve ry county and township, to organize, and, waiving all minor differences, to elect such a legislature and representation in congress as will give a decisive rebuke to those who have anew involved us in agitation. Should such a representation be secured, and James Pollock bo ejected, (as we doubt not he will be,) to the Chief Magistracy of the State; we may look forward to the time when Penn sylvania, her interests and cherished economi cal policy, will be no longer sacrificed, or post poned, or made dependent on the aspirations aA men alien to her in heart and feeling, when Jhe improvement of her navigable streams and defence of her harbors and protection of-her industrial resources can be no longer denied, and when, at no very remote period, the ad ministration of the general government will be Intrusted to those who, frowning down all useless agitation, will maintain the supremacy of the law, the integrity of the Union, and the true interests and honor of the nation. That period is close at hand. The Committee do not pause to refer in de tail to questions of local interest now before the people of Pennsylvania to executive and legislative reform the sale of the public works, frustrated, we fear, by imperfect legis lation and executive indisposition the re trenchment of expenses, and the ultimate ex tinguishment of the public debt, a grevious burthen with its incidental taxation on the en ergies of the people. They are well under stood, and appreciated. The national govern ment, with its overflowing treasury, is now bu sy robbing the people of Pennsylvania by wasting the public domain, and is content to leave us unaided to bear the burthen of debt and taxation. This, too the tax-payers of Pennsylvania will do well to think of. The means of redress are in their hands. At the next State election, coincidently with the choice of public officers, the People of Pennsylvania will be called upon to decide a question of vast moral influence and inter est. On that question, affecting- every home and fireside, the Committee are not now called on to say more than it, too, has been forced on the people by the abuse and prostitution of existing laws and systems by which for years revenue has been derived from crime and mis ery, from the tears of the wives and children of the land, and the desolation of the homes of industry and by a progress of demorali zation which has at last startled the public mind, and aroused it to the necessity of ex treme remedies. Laws, paliative at least of this evil and designed to stay this progress of crime, are at this moment in the hands of the Executive and will not receive his approval. The question is now finally before the people, and the Whig candidate for governor has frankly said that to their decision, through their representatives, he will gladly give ef fect. To one other matter only do the Committee think it right to allude, especially in its rela tion to the approaching election for members of the Legislature. It is one of vast interest as connected with the iuoral and intellectual training of the children of the land those who, when this generation of men shall have passed away, will succeed to public and social duties. The integrity of the Common School Fund is supposed to be in danger. That fund which is the aggregate of the contributions of all the citizens, and which by its aggrega tion effects its chief good, is threatened by attempts, under plausible pretexts to divide and apportion it. It is the Common School Ftxd. So let it always be, and representing, as we do, that party iu the Commonwealth which never has had sympathy with such de signs, and has never countenanced them, we warn the voters of the State of the danger which is impending, and call then to a united and resolute effort to avert it. In conclusion, the Committee urge upon their fellow citizens, who unite with them in these great questions of public policy, to or ganize and act with system and energy iu ev ery township of the State. Against us are ar rayed the power and patronage of the two Ad ministrations, directed in one of its depart ments, that of the Post Office, by individuals familiar with the subtleties of politics, and little scrupulous in their use. But power and patronage never yet have prevailed over the honest sentiments of the people of Pennsyl vania, aijd warning our friends of dangers, and of the necessity of exertion, we look for ward to the result with sure confidence, A. G. CUKTIX, Chairman. Joiix II. Dieiil, Secretary. Signs of Good Breeding. Let your universal motto be "pitch into it." Never wait for your fellow boarders, but "pitch into" the dinner, for remember "the early bird catches the gritb." Keep on pitching into the dinner, as if you had just arrived from a half-wrecked ship, and been on half allowance of "pint" and water for several weeks. Surround yourself with all your favorite dishes so that in case of emergency you can easily pitch into them. Maintain the duty of every one taking care of number one and practice what you preach. Show your independence by wiping your mouth Mith the table cloth ; and your appre ciation of comfort by pitching your feet into your opposite neighbor's lap. If any one urges a slight objection to your little ways, always pitch into him by saying that this is a free country. Lastl-, pitch into every thing and don't object if some time or other some one should pitch into yon. " What did you come here after ?" inquired Miss Susan Nipper of a bachelor friend who made her a call when the rest of the people were gone out. " I came to borrow some matches," he meekly replied. " Matches ! that's a likely story. Why don't you make a match ? I know what you came for," exclaimed the delighted Miss, as she crowded the old bachelor into a corner, " you came to kiss and hug me almost to death, but you fchan't without you are the strongest, and everybody knows you are." D"Snoobledyke lives in the country, and recently commenced going to singing school, lie heard the teacher say something about "two beats in a measure," when ho eagerly remarked, " if he means a half peck measure, the beets must be a darned sight bigger than the ones we raise, for it takes half-a-dozen of them te make a measure!" " Granma, what'll be the last card-play ing 1" I'm sure I don't know, what dear !" " Why when the angel Gabriel plays the last trump.'' Knowledge Hard to Overcome. A sophist, wishing to puzzle Thales, the Milesian, one of the wise men of Greece, pro posed to him in rapid succession these diffi cult questions. The philosopher replied to them all without the laet hesitation, and with how much propriety and decision our readers can judge for themselves: What is the oldest of all things ? GeSl: because he always existed. What is the most beautiful ? The world : bemuse it is the work of God. What is the greatest of all things ? Space: because it contains all that is created. What is the quickest of all things ? Thought: because in a moment it can fiy to the end of the universe. What is the strongest Necessity: because it makes men face all the dangers of life. What is the most difficult ? To know thyself. What is the most constant of all things ? Hope: because it still remains with man after lie has lost everything else. I See that One and go Five Better. D , being in the west, and short of cash, could not tell where to get the necessa ry Wilmot proviso for internal improvements, but, finding a widow who had shot one hus band, and wounded several others, he conclu ded to marry her, so as to get a boarding house. Shortly after the yellow garlands of Hymen were faded, D came in one night slight ly wjwggy, as the Choctaw poets express it, and found his new spouse awaiting his arrival. She pitched into D. like a thousand of brick, and spread herself like a fan-tail pigeon, draw ing a single barrel pistol upon D., who, in stead of travelling, pulled out a revolver, and remarked as gently as the sigh of an Eolian harp Mrs. D., I see that one, (hie) and go five better!"
