Allentown Lehigh Register (Newspaper) - April 26, 1849, Allentown, PennsylvaniaGo c Register. Allentown la a. Thursday april. 26, 1849. Circulation near 3000. V. B. Palmer Esq., n. W. Corner of third and Chesnut streets Philadelphia and 169 Nassau Street Tribune buildings new York is our authorized agent for receiving advertisements and subscriptions to the Lehigh Register and collecting and receipting for the Quot we Call Public attention to the propriety of having die houses Iti Allentown hum scrod. Our town clerk will prepare a Chart from a which every properly owner can gel his number Gratis. The expense will not exceed a shilling while the Benefit and convenience is great. The weather. The weather Oil the Lelh inst. Was out of All propriety. While it was simply cold and great Coats and pinched noses were of he general Wear Thero was no Lack of excuses for the nipping and unseasonable visitor. Icebergs were coming Down the Lehigh thought Many and the chilled atmosphere is owing to that cause a but a Whoie army of icebergs could not so Lar As we Are familiar with the records of Tho weather produce such a snappish violent and Flurr Ying show Storton As that which raged wednesday afternoon and night. It cant Down with a sort of Lapland Witch ferocity As if it know the dismay it caused and gloried in its Power to create discomfort. It was no merely temporary gust but a steady and protracted Down come showing am Lepess of snowy treasure in the Clouds and giving Rise to Distant and further suspicions hat it might not be a thing altogether impossible to Jingle Sleigh Bells once More and draw out the sleighs from the retirement and the dust to which they have been consigned. The Snow however melted too quickly upon the pavements to lend encouragement to such unseasonable thoughts and pedestrians were condemned to know that while All the Mise Ries of a Snow storm were to be endured there was no compensation whatever in the pleasures of which a Snow storm is in Winter the cause and origin. Upon consideration and a glance backwards we Are inclined to alter our opinion somewhat Lor we find that on the 19th of april last year to had just such a Snow storm which did however no injury in the fruit crops. With the exception of the poach and Apricot Blos. Soms the recent cold weather had no worse result than last year. Howes and co s circus had advertised to show on the Samo Day and in due time made their entry into our Borough. In spite of the i Clemancy of the weather a Large number of country people were in town dining the Day. In the evening however before they com most of. To fenced performing and before a Largo number of people were under the Canvas Tho Centre pole broke which put an. End to the performance for the evening. Fortunately no one was in toured by the fall of the pole. The projected Railroad the meeting which was held at the Board of Trade in Philadelphia on the 10th iust., and of which we made mention in on paper of last week we have since Learned was most Force c�0u5ness of havin Bly addressed by Hon. Jamesm. Porter of was ton. In his speech which was listened to with the greatest attention he Laid Bare the great advantages which would be derived by a connexion with the Road up the Lehigh thereby forming a direct connection with the Lehigh i a Schuylkill and Wyoming Coal Region. Cul. Porter who never fears time or expense and who is Ever ready to advocate the interests of a old Northampton a deserves the thanks of every Good citizen for his Enterprise in their Jse half. Pennsylvania erect. A of All acts of Tho recent session of the legislature of this state Nona gives us so much pleasure As that which forbids Tho payment enlarge every rapacity Olour snug a an in broaching this subject we feel a certain. Degree of embarrassment because we do not know what to say that has not been repeated Over at least a thousand and one tires. Vve Woulff not review the thousand and second time this worried theme were we not exceedingly impressed with its importance in our. Neighbourhood particularly. We do not even Hope that we can present anything new to the attention of our readers but we do Hope that j our vesture of old truths will Beso fortunate As j to attract some regard to this subject. The country generally is fully alive to its importance but while All around us is moving for j Ward to a state of improvement we fear we j Are that part of the Stream near the Shore that j Rolls sluggishly along uncaring for the Swift Middle current. It is an accredited axiom that Many a nature differs from that of the lower order of animated j creation Insomuch that his Powers of mind do i not exert themselves intuitively in ways that have been uniform in their operation Ever since his Origi ont but that his faculties require to be taught in what manner to proceed to accomplish a Given object. For instance an uninstructed Savage cannot build a House and furnish it with the comforts that civilisation Fafford. He cannot till a farm and raise an equal Quantity of Grain from a Given piece of Laud that one of our Farmers can do nor can lie navigate a vessel across the Ocean. An animal al i ways seeks his Stibs Istance in the Way that his species has done from the period of its creation. The Beaver cuts Down Trees extends Days across streams and builds his villages precisely in the same Way his progenitors always have done without being educated for that purpose. Tho Swallow upon the approach of Winter invariably seeks a warmer clime and As invariably returns with the approach of summer. Without having been taught in a school or College for that purpose. It is in stint that prompts the actions of animal Sand reason those of men Here we see the difference Between instinct and reason the one prompts intuitively to action the other demands to be educated. This being granted it follows that or faculties should be cultivated to a proper extent a but Here is a Rock on which so Many split they Are satisfied with a very narrow extent. Many suppose that a Little cultivation of Tho faculties for reckoning anti casting up accounts for keeping the soul Well housed in its bodily tenement and gathering together the comforts of life for distinguishing Between right and wrong and doing our Fluty in a contracted sphere to our maker is All that is required of a being who is but a Little lower in intelligence and Power than the Angels in heaven if this were All that was required of us we might almost As Well live in a Savage stale or even follow the example of animals and plod on in one beaten unvarying track forever for the sole purpose of feeding and col Hift our bodies and indulging in a few animal pleasures. But Man has a soul that requires to to Mado the he has no right to let it lie uncultivated it is his duty to exercise All his faculties to their utmost tension that is so far As can be done without injuring them. The command Given to Adam to labor nut Only applied to his physical necessities but also to his moral and mental let us labor then labor labor 1 not Only with our hands but with our Heads and hearts when we come to Render them up to their giver if we have not improved them do Yon think we can do it with the condone All required of us no the cannot. If a Farmer gives another a valuable the to transplant that requires watering and taking care of and the latter sets it out Hilt lets it grow its it will without troubling himself about it would that Farmer give him. Another tree he would Root a he would say that As he had not taken care of inc first Jie would not of Asee Ond. There is something else besides the Art of acquiring food and clothing to be Learnt during our sojourn on Earth. It is not probable that we will eat or drink in heaven and if our existence Here be a sort of preparation for an afterlife it should evidently be spends in obtaining 6iich knowledge As will we dwell every pains that available Money time and attention can do should be employed to enlighten his head and heart. Vve do Mot believe what we have said is Windy croaking we Belg ave it is gods truth and though our preaching May not receive much attention we do not Hejin a a there is one who will deny . A we is a Hare spoken As if All interest in this subject were lifeless we do not think so however we Kivow that attention is paid to it by our people. But there Are causes at work which prevent a sufficient excitement concerning it and it will be Ouraim next week to display them As Well As to give a few suggestions for their removal and a few hints otherwise incidental thereto. Hereafter of the interest on our state debt in j upon it but a phase of. Our subject imbuing it depreciated funds. Hur Calter Pennsylvania i Quot a the this tinge of moral philosophy because s in Silver and Gold to Quot e feel so sensibly its importance. Will pay her hone dues i their equivalent. She is once Moro worthy to be considered the Keystone of the Union Arch. Tho new school Law. Tho following is Given As a summary of the principal alterations in the school Law As established by the Bill recently passed a the directors Are empowered to Levy a tax sufficient to keep the schools opon not More then ten months in each year. The schools Are required to to kept open at least four months in each year. The treasurer of the school fund is made the collector of school taxes. The collector is to fix a time and place when and where to will receive the school taxes and is us receive two per cent for collect Ittig. Fit is not paid at the time designated the Constable is to collect it. Sub districts Are not interfered with where the committee of a sub District and the directors disagree to the employment of a teacher the people of the sub District have the right to elect a teacher who must however have been first examined by the directors. The special Law for West Chester Schuylkill township and other places is not abolished. All moneys subject to taxation for slate and county purposes Are made subject to school tax. A the state appropriation of two Hundred thousand dollars is continued but it is not made the basis of taxation. Tho people do not Vole on the question of taxation. Tho superintendent is required to furnish to each school a copy of the new map of the state of Pennsylvania Large size. There Are a Thoin Aud other consideration which should induce us to increased exertion j in this Noble cause. But we will not relate five i Hundred nor fifty nor Twenty but will Only j touch upon one or two. Our self interest then should to a sufficient incentive to improvement. There is a great Deal of philosophy in the common assertion made by parents that the Host legacy they can leave their children is a Good education. It has been proved Loo often Lobo contradicted now. If it. Is such a Benefit to the children would it not have been of equal Benefit to the parents if their progenitors had always left them the came Fortune it is a current opinion among some ignorant people that there is danger in knowing too much that it a Man possesses much knowledge it is hurtful to his private interests a away with such silly fancies they Are too foolish to be dwelt a moment upon. The fact is those who Are said to possess too much knowledge do not possess enough they have a few scattering ideas of Many things but not enough of any one to Render them of service. Or they May be Well acquainted with one Especial subject to the detriment of others of More importance. Each citizen of our country is to a certain extent the Sovereign of his land and in order to exercise properly the functions of his station he must be trained up for that Eracli citizen is responsible for his share of the government and he must be taught to feel his responsibility. It is not necessary of course that he should be drilled like a Victo it to b taught seven or eight living languages and other accomplishments in proportion but that in using the masculine gender we do not mean to Overlook woman who is As important in this cause if not More so then the sterner sex. The exemption Law. The a Homestead exemption Bill a to exempt real estate to the amount of s300 yearly value from execution did not pabs the Pennsylvania legislature. A Bill however passed exempting property to the value ofs300, exclusive of wearing apparel and school books which Are now exempted. The Bill to Nakeef feet on contracts made after the fourth of july next. For More definite particulars see another column. J the new militia Law our state legislature at its recent session a passed a new militia Law which Lias been approved by the governor and hence will go in j to operation at the time therein specified. Vve i copy the following extracts of said Law from the West Chester Republican and Democrat the first Section makes a i a the duly of every free White male person Between the Ages of 18 a and -15 years who has resided in this com Mnew Talili month to provide himself with such uniform As May be considered a proper uniform for a Volunteer company which j shall in All cases be a substantial uniform fit for the Law then provides for the forming of the persons thus uniformed a into companies of not less then 30, rank and file a and into battalions regiments and brigades.

Wisconsin Milwaukee Sentinel informs us that the Treasury of Wisconsin is so palpably empty that the members of the late slate legislature either went Home without any Money or had to stand a heavy shave on their warrants. The counties Are delinquent to the amount of Over $19,000. The deficiency in the Treasury is about $25,000.

A a a a a a the exemption Law we give below the act recently passed by the legislature to exempt three Hundred dollars Worth of personal property from Sale or execution or distress for rent. It has been erroneously called the a exemption Bill a from the fact that it was zealously supported by Captain Small the author of the Homestead Bill and because the amount of exemption in both acts appeared at first sight to be the same. The Homestead Bill was designed to exempt real estate not exceeding in annual value the sum of three Hundred dollars. It was reported adversely upon by the judiciary committee of the Senate and did not become a Law. The act now published was introduced into the Senate by or. Johnson of Erie. An act to exempt property to the value of three Hundred dollars from Levy and Sale on exec a tion and distress for rent. Sec. 1. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of representatives of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in general Assembly met and it is hereby enacted by the authority of the same. That in lieu of the property now exempted by Law from Levy and Sale on execution issued upon any judgment obtained and distress for rent property to the value of three Hundred dollars exclusive of All wearing apparel of defendant and his family and All bibles and school books in use in the family which shall remain exempt As heretofore and no More owned by or in Possession of any debtor shall be exempt from Levy and Sale on execution or by distress for rent. See. 2. That the sheriff Constable or other officer charged with the execution of any warrant issued by competent authority for the levying upon and Selling the property either real or personal if any debtor summon three disinterested and competent persons who shall be sworn or affirmed to appraise the property which the said debtor May a elect to retain under the provisions of this act for which service the said appraisers shall be entitled to receive fifty cent each to be charged As part of the costs of the proceedings and property thus chosen and appraised to the value of three Hundred dollars shall be exempted from a by and Sale on the said execution of warrant excepting warrants for the collection of taxes. Sec. 3. That in any Case where the property levied upon As aforesaid shall consist of real estate of greater value than three Hundred dollars and the defendant in such shall elect to remain real estate amounting in value to the whole of three Hundred dollars or any less sum the appraisers aforesaid shall determine whether in their opinion the said real estate can be divided without injury to or spoiling the whole and if the said appraisers shall determine that the said real estate can be divided As aforesaid then they shall proceed to set apart so much thereof As in their opinion shall be sufficient to answer the requirement of the defendant in such Case designating the same by proper metes and hounds All of which proceedings shall be certified in writing by the said appraisers or a majority of them under their proper hands and seals to the sheriff under sheriff or Coroner charged with the execution of the writ in such cases who shall make return of the same in the proper court from which the writ is issued in connection with the said writ fro Vird that this Section shall not be construed to affect or impair the liens of Bonds mortgages or other contracts for the Purchase Money of the real estate of insolvent debtors. See. 4. That upon the return made of the writ aforesaid with the proceedings thereon the plaintiff in the Casa shall be entitled to have his writ of Vendit Ioni Dupona As in other cases to sell the residue of the real estate included in the Levy aforesaid if the appraisers aforesaid shall have determined upon a division of said real estate but if the said appraisers shall determine against a division of said real estate the plaintiff May have a writ of Vendit Ioni Caponas Trosell the whole of the real estate included in such Levy and it shall and May be lawful in the latter Case for the defendant in the execution to receive from the sheriff or other officer of the proceeds of said Sale As much As he would have received at the appraised value had the said real estate been divided. Sec. 5. That the Twenty sixth Section of the act entitled a an act relating to executions a passed sixteenth june one thousand eight Hundred and thirty six and the seventh and eighth sections of an act entitled a an act in regard to certain entries in ledgers in the City of Pittsburg and relating to the publishing of sheriffs sales and for other purposes a passed Twenty second april one thousand eight Hundred and a forty six and All other acts inconsistent with this act be and the same arc hereby repealed. Sec. 6. That the provisions of this act shall not take effect until the fourth Day of july next and shall Appl y Only to debts contracted on and after that Date. To the people of California. The treaty with Mexico makes you cite Zens of the. United states. Congress has not As yet passed the Laws which should Confer on Yon the benefits of our government and considerable time May elapse before they do such is done however your situation is anomalous and critical and Calls upon you for the exercise of your most mature discretion and the most Exa hed patriotism. The civil and military provisional government established among you by right of the late existing condition of War is at an end. The edicts promulgated by your provisional governor Kearney and Mason both of them ignoramuses As far As they refer to changing the Laws of the country Are null and of no value and were so from the commencement because the Laver s of a country remain in Force always until they Are altered by a Legal legislative authority and no authority has As yet altered those Laws which existed at the time of the Conquest. The Laws a of California still remain what they were and they Are sufficient for your present Protection with some slight additions your own freewill and administered by officers of your own election. Having no Legal government or. Legal officers you cannot have any a except through your own acts you cannot have any one put in authority Over you except from your own consent. Your Sanction must be the will of a majority. I recommend you to unite in a convention which shall provide Lor a simple and cheap government and that you thus take care of yourself until Congress shall look after Yosif interests. You require a governor and judges some justices of the peace and officers of militia this is about All you re it quire. The roman Law the basis of Yoiiro Laws is both just and Wise and Only requires to be administered by honest judges Alcalde whom you ought 10-elect avoid new codes of Laws until they Are introduced a by permanent authorities. You ice Oire but Little now in addition to what you have and this you can give yourselves at your convention to Witry elections trial by j and courts of reconciliation. These las Marc to Seminale disputes without litigation by Quot Means of a judge they can be easily engrafted on the roman Law which you have already and which favor amicably arbitration and adjustment. It is founded on the declarations of scripture. A agree quickly with you or opponent whilst he is ready to do so a amp a.
