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.

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!"

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

B7" Don't trifle with the affections of young
ladies. They are institutions that never were
established for any such purpose. If you don't
contemplate marriage certificates and the par
son, French bedsteads, a five hundred dollar
hoifSe rent, and a prospective home for the
old folks, just take your hat and leave. You've
no more right to go on trifling with confiding

vacantly, " O, I'll give her a puff."
" Take her," replied the father.

And brightest pictures you shall see.

To put all gloomy doubts to rest.

And made to act a wily part.
