Colonel W.W. H. Pavls, Editor of tho TVvyles

Pennsylvania Regiment, has Rout a circular
here asking the Renerous anil patrlollo to con
tribute to a fund tor the election of a monu

As nearly every county is engaged in a similar

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.
