In this deeply important hour, filled with the gravest issues that ever were presented to the American people, it becomes the citizen to exercise all the prudence and moderation that he can command. It would be vain, as well as criminal to attempt to deceive our selves or others. The signs of revolu tion are thickening all around us. The very air is rife with them. They are seen in the steadiness with which a partizan majority in Congress pursue the work of impeachment, which, if it end in conviction, must also end in blood. They are witnessed in the da ring attempt to overthrow the Supreme Court of the United States, a tribunal which was created, under the Consti tution, to define the powers of Congress, and to check its encroachments, when upon occasions like the present, the voice of moderation and patriotism should be stifled by the spirit of party. They are witnessed in the obstinacy with which the majority in Congress persist in their fatal scheme of reducing sovereign States to the condition of ter ritorial vassalage, and in sternly refu sing to their citizens the representation to which all people in a democratic government are entitled. It is sad to reflect that so many thous ands of lives, and so many millions of treasure have been wasted, to enable a Congressional caucus, in Washington, in the name of the sovereign people, to destroy the Constitution under the wicked pretext that the times demand a change. Our sole hope now is, that the people may yet arrest the insane course of their leaders; but the hope is a frail one. They will arouse themselves when it may be too late to arrest the calamity. Robespiore, Danton and Barrere had seized upon the govern ment of France, in the name of the Convention had usurped its powers, and had poured out upon the guillotine the best blood of the nation, before the peo ple ended their Reign of Terror. The Jacobin Committee of Public Safety in republican France was the legitimate predecessor of the usurpation known as the Congressional Caucus at Wash ington. TIIAD. STEVENS said in the House, the other day, "I deny that Pennsylva nia is a Republican State. She never was a Republican State, and I wish this Congress would take her in hand and make her a Republican State." Poor old Thad.! He had just returned from ITarrisburg, where ho got only seven votes for United States Senator. Xo wonder he thought Pennsylvania not a Republican State. We shall next hear that he has introduced a bill to re-construct the State he rep resents. WE are glad to see that many of the most influential Radical journals are out against the impeachment of the President, and it is to be hoped that their wiser and more prudent counsels may prevail. In this country, the im peachment of a President by a partisan House, and his trial and conviction by a partisan Senate, can end only in bloody revolution. THE Pittsburg Post has been greatly enlarged and is now printed on entire ly new type. The Post is now a first class paper and fully deserves the pat ronage of the people of Western Penn sylvania. We hopethatthe Democrats and Conservatives of that section will rally to its support. THE I.HESSE LAWS. It is amazing that, when the revenue laws on spirits, which boar so severely upon the industry of Pennsylvania, were upon their passage, not a voice in protest was raised in our Congressional delegation. Little could be expected ; from the city members, for many of their constituents, owning large distil- ! leries, and interested in destroying com petition by breaking up small manu facturers, had the power of silencing j their immediate representatives; and j a Democratic member of Congress had j only to object to any Radical proposi- j tion, no matter how injurious and op- 1 pressive, to be charged with making a! rancorous but covert assault upon the Union. But where were the Republi can members from the rural districts? Is the domination of New England in Congress so complete, that a Pennsyl vania member dare not ever so humbly protest against any of its tyrannical measures ? It is unfortunate for Penn | sylvania, that the leader of her own delegation is a New England man, who, I though nominally representing the i Lancaster district, has so voted in Con ' gress as to turn the heavy distilleries of j that county into manufactories of eon j traband whisky, or to ciose them up, except such as could afford to pay an ! inspector fifteen hundred dollarsayear | for doing nothing. The amendment to the revenue laws passed July, 18(50, requires in addition to the already heavy taxes and license, that each distillery shall have an in spector who shall be paid five dollars per day for his services, which consist in returning semi-monthly the amount of whisky manufactured, if he does his duty, or in signing the blanks that are furnished by the distiller, if he does not perform his duty. No one but a Cape Cod Yankee, filled with admiration of the blue laws of his ancestors, could have ever conceived the idea of appoin ting an inspector to look at another man while at work, and to receive for his supervision, higher wages than the distiller himself could hope to realize for his expense and labor. If the law was designed to prevent fraudulent re turns on the part of the distiller, the case is not improved by the appoint ment of an inspector, who might be in duced to make false statements of the amount sold. There is, at least, just as much danger that the inspector could be persuaded to act fraudulently as the distiller, and the only effect of the law, therefore, is to increase the already too heavy burthens of the honest manufac turer, or to add to the temptations of the dishonest one. . This law is another illustration of that tyrannical New England spirit which is forever interfering with the personal and domestic rights, or the in terests of the individual. It gives the Yankees an opportunity to domineer over Pennsylvania, while at the same time taking good care of their own in terests. By their Maine-law legisla tion they had driven out of their bor ders all distillers, and it became there fore any easy matter for them to tax other people. For all their wants they obtain an abundance of cheap whisky that is smuggled in from Canada. In all parts of New England whisky can be purchased for less money than .the revenue tax which government asses ses upon it. The heavier the taxes and other burthens upon whisky, legally made, the better the Yankee is satisfied, as he consumes none but the contra band article. This Canada traffic is in creasing daily, and with the immense profits that are made on it by the Yan kees, it will be impossible to arrest it with a cordon of revenue officers pick eting the entire border. The manufacturer of whisky in Penn sylvania, and the producer of rye, suf fer, in every way, from this condition of | tilings. But 'we confess that there is little hope of remedy. The owners of those immense distilleries in our great cities, the reeking walls of which frown upon every bond, and which emit a villainous odor ot rectified dev iltries which shock the olfactories of the stranger, are deeply i uteri sted in continuing the present law. It is easy for them to appoint inspectors whose services to them would be cheap at five times their salary. The contraband manufacturer and smuggler,out of their immense profits, can afford to subsidise the lobby to advocate the present law, in the name of temperance and good morals. The. honest distillers scattered through Pennsylvania and Ohio, have no means of influencing Congress, and must soon go to the wall: the country will he flooded with greater quantities of bad whisky than ever; and the gov ernment will not derive enough rev 'enue from its tax on spirits to pay the officers employed in collecting it. OUR State Legislature, during the last three years of Radical mis-rule, has added swarms of subordinate office holders and employeesio both Houses. This is the economy they promis ed the people. HON. WILLIAM E. dJlge, of New- York cjty, is oue of the wealtbiestand ablest business men in this country. He is also a respectable and influential member of the Radical party, he hav ing taken a prominent part in the Pre- j mont campaign, and been ever since j a "Republican" of the .most strait-j est sect. It will be remembered that j be successfully contested the-seat of the j Hon. James Brooks, in the present j Congress. On Monday, the 21st inst., j he made a speech, in his place, in the j House, from which we clip the follow ino- extract. We call attention to it as showing what a change has come over the spirit of the dream of even the most ultra Radical Jacobin Destruc tives : He rose to give his reason why he could not vote either for tl)e hill or the amendment. He hoped he would not, for his course on the bill, be denounced as a renegade Republican. He differed entirely from the general sentiment on the republican side ot the House that the States recently in rebellion werenot States in the Union. Congress had al- j ready committed itself against that view. The constitutional amendment abolishing slavery had been submitted i to them bv the general government, i and had been ratified by them in IMA j when West Virginia was organized. j Mr. Speaker Colfax had made a speech , in which he declared that Governor! Rierpont and the Wheeling Legislature , were the rightful government and Leg- j islature of the Stateof Virginia, com-, petent constitutionally to give assent to | the partition of the State; and the last< constitutional amendment had been sent to the rebel States for ratification, and lie was confident Congress bad in tended that it should be so sent. He had read carefully the bill of Mr. Ste vens and the substitute of Mr. Ashley, and he had failed to find in either the first thing that promised peace, concil iation and harmony. He looked anx iously for peace and permanent concili ation, therefore Congress should becare ful not to pass laws that could oniy ir ritate the people of the South and per petuate the hostility between the sec tions. He was not deficient in sympa thy for the colored men, but he kr. ew that under the circumstances such a state of things was in a measure to .>e expected. Something to bring about a better feeling between the North ami the Soutli was what was wanted, and at the same tiunea better feeling between the Southern men and the freed men. He could not see in either the bill or the amendment anything of the kind. The result of the passage of the bill would be to disfranchise a large proportion of the white men of the South, while it would enfranchise the colored man. Would the passage of such a law be cal culated to create better feeling between the North and the South ? If the Re publican party in the State ot New York had laid down such a programme at the late election, lie had no doubt it would have been defeated. The Radical newspapers continue to bewail the corruption at liarrisburg as though they had really been fools enough to expect something better. During the campaign we warned the people of the corruption and p*olifiga cy that was sure to follow the election of the Radical candidates, but our warning was unheeded. We are glad to see that the leading Radical editors have at last got their eyes open. They can cleanse the Augean Stables at the Capital by electing Conservative mem bers. IT will be soon by the call in another column that the Democratic* County Committee is to meet on Tuesday eve ning of Court week. It is to be hoped there will be a full attendance. Busi ness of great importance to the party will be transacted, and every district should be represented; Let every mem ber answer to his name. HARRISBURQ.

Correspondence of the Bedford Gazette. I"lAintisiiUßCf, Jan. 20. MR. EDITOR:—The Pennsylvania Legislature drags its slow length along, and you r correspondent eh ran icles with all that is done in that inert body. What a sleepy set they are, these legis lators for the people! Like the boa constrictor, after swallowing a tiger, d rowses over its surfeit and becomes ti irpid in itsefforts at digestion, so these erstwhile gay and festive fellows, gor ged with the good things of the earn er onian "Buzzard's Feast" [ vide Jordan on < 'ameron, 1855) appear to be sleeping on the fullness of their—}>oeket-books ! I .saw, the other day, a big burly mem ber from Philadelphia, Davis by name, (no relation to Jeff., though I am not so sure that he doesn't deserve hang ing quite as much as his Southern namesake) got up, after a tremendous effort to raise himself from his seat, and report from tii " ('nnmittee on Federal Relations (that tomb of the Capulets) "ajolntresolution instructing our Senators and requesting our mem bers of Congress TO repeal the tax on Petroleum." Davis had been largely interested in the oil bubble, ancl it was not at all unnatural in him to offer the resolution. But it did seem to ine that he "strained himself" in trying to get up. The Constitutional Amendment lias been passed by the Senate, after an a ble discussion of its merits by Senators Burnett, Davis and others, on the Dem ocratic side, who folly demonstrated the monstrosity of its propositions and the destructive purpose of those who advocate its ratification. Senators Landon, White and Lowry, on the Mongrel side, declaimed about "trea son" and "loyalty," but did not at tempt to answer the arguments of the Democrats. Landon's speech was soph omorie in the extreme, "full of sound and fury,signifying nothing." Harry I White repeated his lecture delivered in the House of Representatives, three years ago, on his return from Dixie. It was about as a j tropes as Landon's rhapsody. As for Lowry, whose orato ry is of the elcnched-fist, puffed-cheek and sonorous voice order, he roared , and ripped and snorted like a veritable j tawny "bull ofßashan."—ln the House j the Amendment was also discussed on j "Wednesday last, by Mr. Jenks, of Jef ferson, on the Democratic side, and Mr. I Mann, of Potter, on the Mongrel side. | Mr. Jenks is an excellent reasoner and > handled the subject very ably. Of : couiye the Amendment will be adopt- j ed and—that is all the good i<t will do the Mongrels. Mr. Quay (Mongrelj of Beaver, has introduced a resolution in the House, cal liiijg a State Constitutional Conven tion for the purpose of striking the word "white" from the Constitution. 1 cannot say whether this resolution will Le adopted, but the very fact that it has been offered, shows that what the stump orators of the Mongrels said last fall, viz: that the State Constitution could not be amended, except after so ma ny years , was false. I presume that those credulous people Who have al lowed the special pleading Mongrel leaders, to pull them along by the nose, will soon see this question in its true light. If not, then they must be purblind indeed. Some of the Mongrel papers are be ginning to denounce Gov. Geary with great fury. The Erie Dispatch lately had an article which applied every ep ithet that ever entered the vocabulary of the fish-market, to the devoted hero of Suickersville. The Franklin Depos itory also "breathes out threateniugs and slaughter" against the newly in ! stalled Governor. Both these papers ; have admitted that the election of Si i mon Cameron to the U. S. Senate would j prove, the disruption of their party in ; Pennsylvania. Well, if they only tell | the truth this time, you and I will for j give them all the falsehoods (though ' their name is legion) they have ever told. Hoping that they have not "cut it too fat" at least this once, I remain j "yourn 'til deth," LEX. BOOKS AND PERIODICALS.

There seems to be no prospect of a speedy peace between the belligerent parties in South America. The Bra zilian army is waiting for reinforce ments to renew the contest; a new commander has been appointed who has infused fresh life into the forces, and hard fighting may be expected at an early day. The Paraguayan army •on the other hand, is reported full of confidence and ready for action, when the proper time comes. Troops were being raised by draft in the Provinces, a force had been dispatched to the Par aguay River, and five monitors were said to he in the course of construc tion. It is stated that an insurrection had occurred in Paraguay which threat ened trouble, and that a force had been dispatched to the northwestern bonier to guard against aggressions from Pe ru. Lopez has not been idle and has profited by the respite to render his po sition stronger in Curupuiiy, by ma king abattis at all the points of easier access, and mounting a new battery of thirty heavy guns, facing the river. It is the opinion of many foreign anil native officers that Curupaity cannot be taken without a great sacrifice of lives. The opening of the Amazon River and its tributaries to the trade of all nations is noticed in the leading Bra zilian papers, and they claim that the war is now urged by them for the pur pose of compelling Lopez to act in a like liberal and progressive manner. This is a point well taken by the allies, and calculated to make them friends in all commercial nations. But Lopez maintains that this is mere pretense on the part of the allies, that he is not op posed to free trade on the Paraguay ; but that it must be instituted in such a way as not to profit Brazil to the inju ry of Paraguay. This is the position occupied by Lopez on the free-trade ({nestion, and he has dispatched agents to England and the continent for the purpose of representing his views in the mercantile circles there. In the meantime, the war will progress, and the end may be interposition on the part of France. Such a thing has been indiCated more than once during the continuance of the struggle, and it may become a fact if the war be protracted. Short dresses are struggling severely for the ascendancy in our fashionable circles. CONBRW*. SENATE.—ZSIr. Fteeilden, from the committee on Finance, reported, with amendments, the Legislative, Execu tive, and Judicial Appropriation bill. The bill to amend the act to prevent smuggling was taken up and passed. A bill was introduced for the relief of the >, inhabitants of cities and towns on the public lands; it wag referred. Mr. Wade introduced a bill to provide for the al lotment of J usticesof the Supreme Court among the circuits, and the appoint ment of marshals of the Supreme Court and of the District of Columbia. Mr. Wilson introduced a resolution calling on the Secretary of War for information as to whether any officers of the army recently appointed have failed to join their command; the resolution was adopted. After the credentials of the Hon. Frederick Frelinghuyson as Sen ator from New Jersy, had been presen ted, the Tariff bill was taken up on the amendment exempting from duty all books, maps and charts, imported ex pressly for the use of public libraries, schools and colleges. Mr. Grimes then addressed the Senate at length in oppo sition to the bill. Mr. Hendricks op- posed the amendment, and Mr. Sumner replied, after which the amendment was adopted. Various amendments were offered by Mr. Sumner, which were rejected. Mr. Wade moved to amend the bill by increasing the duty on linseed or flaxseed to twenty-three cents per bushel of fifty-two pounds. After some discussion the amendment was amended by making the duty on linseed twenty cents per bushel and thirty cents a gallon on the oil, which was agreed to. The Senate soon after wards adjourned. HOUSE.— After various reports of committees had been made, M.Schenck gave notice that he should c-all up the Bounty bill to-day, or, at the farthest, on Saturday. The Committee on Ways and Means was directed to inquire into the expediency of placing on the free list wagons and plough harness, and al so common bedsteads, chairs and tables. A bill was also reported granting lands to Tennessee to aid in the construction of colleges for teaching agriculture and the mechanic aifs. The bill was oppos ed by Mr. Le Blond, and a long diseus sion ensued, during which an exciting scene occurred between Mr. Kelly, of Pennsylvania, and Mr. Cooper, ofTen nessee, in which the latter gave his op ponent the lie. The bill was amended by providing that under these grants of land no person who had held office in the Southern Confederacy should ever be a professor or tutor in any ofthe col leges or schools. The bill was then passed by a vote of 111 yeas to 35 nays. The House then took up the Recon struction bill of Mr. Stevens. Mr. Ray mond, of New York, in aset speech op posed tin bill, lie was followed by Mr. Shellabarger, of Ohio, in favor of the bill. When the latter sat down Mr. Stevens rose and stated that on account •of differences of opinion he had conclu ded not to call the previous question, and unless in the meantime, he changed his mind, he would to-day move to lay the bill on the table. The House then resolved itself into Committee of the Whole on the State of the Union, and Mr. Morrill, of Vermont, made a long speech on thefinances. At SP. M. the House adjourned. SENATE. —A memorial from a num ber of citizens of Baltimore, protesting against the passage of the pending Bankrupt bill, was presented and laid on the table. A bill was reported from the Committee on Foreign Affairs, reg ulating the appointment of Commis sioners to the Paris Exposition. It pro vides for a Coramissioner-in-Chief, the : thirty Commissioners already appoint ed, and twenty additional Honorary Commissioners —fifty in all. Other ap propriations are made, which, with the existing appropriations, will make ov ers2oo,oooappropriated for this purpose. A bill was passed providing that the term of imprisonment of persons con lined for offences against the laws ofthe \ United States shall be shortened for i good behavior. A bill amending the 1 acts relating to habeas corpus, providing the manner of removal of certain cases ! from State to United States Courts, was J taken up and passed. Communications were received from the Governor of Pennsylvania, certifying theelection of Hon. Simon Cameron as Senator elect for six years from the 4th of March next, and from the Governor of West \ i rgi'.i ia, announcing the ratification of the Constitutional amendment by the Leg islature of that State. The Tariff bill was then taken up. Mr. Johnson mov ed to strike out certain portions of the articles relating to the duty on bitum inous coal, so as to itnposeaduty of one dollar and a halfaton on all bituminous coal. After a longdiscussion theamend ment was agreed to. HOUSE. —A bill was passed providing for the removal of the wreck 0/ the steamer Scotland from New York har bor. A hiil was passed allowing the Government to accept the steamship Idaho at the contract price ($600,000). Mr. Broomall, of Pennsylvania, intro duced a resolution declaring that the language used by Mr. Cooper in debate on Thursday merited a vote of censure, but subsequently withdrew it. A bill was passed exempting alcohol from tax when made of distilled spirits, upon which a tax has been paid, and ulso camphene and burning fluid when made from alcohol so exempted. A number of private bills were taken up and passed. The House soon after ad journed. RELIEF NOTES OF 1841. —\\ e learn from tabular Statement appended to the Auditor General's Annual Report, that 896,020 of the so-called "Relief Notes" that were issued by the banks of this Commonwealth as a loan to the State, in the year 1841—twenty-six years ago—are still unredeemed. The original amount of these notes issued, was 82,220, 205. Two dollars were re deemed during the year last past. As the sight olVi "Relief Note" is now ev en nirer than a piece of gold coin, it may be presumed that the amount re ported as still in circulation has been destroyed by the natural wear and tear of paper money.

SCHEXCK'S MEDICINES.—To cure consumption, tbe system must be prepared so that the lungs will heal. To accomplish this, the liver and stomach must first be cleansed and an appetite created for good wholesome food, which, by these medicines will be digested properly, and good healthy blood made; thus building up the constitution. Schenck'a Mandrake Pills cleanse the stomach of all bilious or mucous accumulations; and, by using the Sea Weed Tonic in connection, the appetite is restored. Sehenck's Pulmonic Syrup is nutritious as well a,s medicinal, and, by using the three remedies, all i mpnrities are expelled from the system, and good, wholesome blood made, which will repel all dis ease. If patients will take theie medicines ac cording to directions, consumption very frequently in its last stage yields readily to their action.— 'Pake the pills frequently, to cleanse the liver and stomach. It does not follow that because the bow ols arc not costive they are not required, forsome t.imes in diarrhoea they are necessary. The stom ach must be kept healthy, and an appetite created t.o allow the Pulmonic Syrup to act on the respir • itory organs properly nnd allay any irritation. Then all that is required to perform a permanent • jure is, to prevent taking cold. Exercise about the rooms as much as possible, eat all tbe richest food —fat meat, game, and, in fact, anything tbe appetite craves; but be particular and masticate well. 2d w PREPARED OIL OF PALM AND MACE for PRESERVING, RESTORING, and BEAUTIFYING the HAIR, and is the most delightful and wonder ful article the world ever produced.
