Pavls, Editor of tho TVvyles town Jiryjwcrtit, and late Colonel of tho lUlth Pennsylvania Regiment, has Rout a circular here asking the Renerous anil patrlollo to con tribute to a fund tor the election of a monu ment to the oflicors and men of his regiment. As nearly every county is engaged in a similar work, we are afraid that the gallant Colonel will not meet with much success In his unsel fish duty outside of Ducks, ANOTHER GENERAL RAILROAD LAW BILL. There have been three difl'oient bills Intro ductd into the (Senate for a free railroad law. Home of the (senators are under the impression that the LecJslalure should not paws a free rail road law until tho concurrent actiou of Mary land, Delaware, etc., Is first obtained. Rut tho picM-ure Is so strong In the Henate that a bill in some slinpe or other will unquestionably pass at this session. The last lull, which is viry carefully worded, provides that any num ber T citizens of Pennsylvania, not less than nine, may form nci.mpauv for the purpose of coiitlrucllng and maintaining a railway, to be opi rated by steam power, the articles of incor poration not to be tiled in the otllce of the Secretary of the Commonwealth until at least $K),lHi0 of stock lor every tnllo of railway pro posed to be made Is subscribed thereto, aud ten per cenlum paid thereon in good faith aud In cash to the directors uamed in the articles of association. The stockholders of all corporations Organized under this act are to be Individually liable, to the amount of tbelr stock, for the payment of wages of labor, materials furnished, right of way, property used, and damages Incurred in the construction, maintenance, and operation of their respective railways, that may be due and unpaid for a period not exceeding six months. A provision is made that it shall not belawlul 1 1 make any charge for the transpor tation of anthracite or bituminous coals, iron ore, pig metal, lumber, and agricultural pro ducts transported In the cars owned by Indi viduals, associations, orcorporalionsother than the company owning or constructing the rail way when transported thereon twenty or more miles, exceeding two cents per ton per inii which shall include wheel toll, and not exceed ing two and a half cents per mile when trans ported in t he cars of the company. No street, lane, alley, or highway, lu any city or Incorporated borough or district, shall be used, occupied, or appropriated by any railway company incorporated under this act, without the content of the municipal authorities and the payment of damages.- All corporations under this act shall begin the survey of the route set forth m their respective charters, nnd shall within six months thereafter file a com plete map In the ollice of llie Secretary of the Common wealth, and in case of neglect to build the road, tho right of priority shall cease, aud tliolotatiou can be tiiken up by any corpora tion. The managers to consist of a President and not less than six nor more than twelve Directors. The directors of any railwaycompany created under this act shall have tho power to borrow money, not exceeding in amount twenty thou sand dollars per mile, aud issue the bonds of Ihe C9nij',Ev therefor, payable at such time not exceeding llfty yeare, p. ml. at such, rut. of lute rest not exceeding seven per cent. The Legis lature reserves the right to impose upon any corporation so created such taxes upon lis propeity, trailic, capital slock, and bonds, as il may deem from time to time pi'opjr. The Free Railway bill has been made tho special order lu the Senate to-morrow morning. It does not embrace passenger railways. Ills expected that Mr. Uigham (Hep.) and Mr. Wal lace (Dem.) will make powerful speeches iu favor of the measure. It Is understood thut the frleiKis of the large railroad corporations in this fcltite do not oppose the passage of the bill. of which I have giveu you a synopsis above. the first Vetoes. Governor Geary returned to tho House this morning several bills which he hud vetoed. These are the Governor's first veto messages. Hon. Renjamln if. llrewster Is working very Industriously in the State Departmeut, and ha takes particular pains to pass over all bills that come in conflict with the powersof the dill'oreut courts and the general laws of the State. ROAD JUItOHS. Mr. Wells has Introduced a bill Into the Penate making the pay of road Jurors and viewers, in the city of Philadelphia, two dollars aud a half per day. AN EXCITING SESSION. The SeDate was In session until nearly mid night, debating the act granting one-tenth of the proceeds ot the land donated by Congress to the Pennsylvania Agricultural Society. Mr. Righam, of Allegheny, and Mr. Lowry, of Erie, were particularly severe on the bill, looking at the Agricultural Society, as far as practical results were concerned, as a failure, Mr. Speaker Hall took the floor, aud made an earnest fight In defense of the bill. It is under stood that Senator McCandless has a bill pro viding for a similar institution In the viciulty of Philadelphia.) The bill again came np this morning, aud was passed by a very decided vote. A CENTRAL OR MIDDLE PENITENTIARY. The rapid increase of population In this State, particularly in the middle, portion of It, shows that crime steadily keeps pace with it, aud that necessity demands that an additional peni tentiary should bo built in a central or middle situation. This is mroe apparent from tho fact that both the Eastern and Western Peniten tiaries have not sulliclenl accommodations for the criminals sent to them, and will, at this session, usk for large appropriations to make needed extensions and Improvements. A bill, it is said, will soon be Intro duced Into the Legislature, having for Its object the building of tm iidditioiiHl Petiilehtiary, in such u situation as can be readily leuclied by tho courts of Dauphin, Ferry, Cumberland, Juniata, Franklin, York, Snyder, Union, Lebanon, Lycoming, Columbia, Centre, Millltn, Huntingdon, lilalr, Schuylkill, aud other counties, llai rlsburg bein me seat of government, and convenient for tno con veyance of prisoners by railroad Irpm the dif ferent middle counties, makes it a desirable Kite, il the Legislature should puss a law for the building ol a thud Penitentiary, The high hill on the opposite side ot the Sus quehanna, lu Cumberland county, appears to be a favtiiite spot with u number of persons who are Interested iir the subject. II Is in a healthy situation, and convenient for the trans portation of all the necessary building nialo rialH. It was originally intended lo build the Capitol on tills hill, which wus fortified during the Itebellion, and Is now known as Fort Wash ington. MR. VERON FLETCHER'S "VENUS." To the I.'tlitoro The Keening Telegrnph Sir: In looking over the newspapers of the 10th, I observed in the Age a criticism upon this painting, lu which the writer, although Just aud honest, regarding the subject of criti cism according to his own view of the matter, does not coincide with the numerous and almost unanimous opinions of critics, auato mists, and connoisseurs of art who have had the ploiiHure of examining this verv beautiful work, lu the first place, the critic of the Ago stales that "Mr, Veron Fletcher is a young artist of this city." We will admit that Mr. Fletcher Is not old yet, having had only some thirty years' experience as au artist. The critic of the Age informs us "that the jKiseot the form is wanting in ease and grace, the drawing Is faulty in some particulars and the face lulls to reall.e llie poetical conception." Now, I have heard the almost universal acknowledgment of goodjudges of art, that the ease aud grace of the position in this pluture Is most perfect, and the drawing exceedingly hue and, being myself1 an anatomist, f chaliongiP any one to point out a fault In tho anatomical drawing of this figure I think, perhaps, that the dlfrp-irinCo between the "orltlc of the Age" and r.iysel'r Is merely ft misunderstanding of th'j concepUon of tho subject, according to tie,pftof U)e Brtlftti Tne many represents ,l0tl, of Venus" by both old and modern Artists, convey the Idea of beauty And gre combined with sensuality and volnp "Vonsness. Now, I contend that "Venus" was considered the perfection of grace and beauty, combined with purity, modi-sty, and chastity a something to excite admiration, but not to pander to the grosser passions; and this. I con cflve, was the study of the artist, and whloh he has most faithfully placed on canvas. M. D. DRY GOODS. PRICE & WOOD, N. W.
