THE DAILY EVENING TELEGR APR i MX L ADflLPHI A, SATURDAY, APRIL 8, 1871.
3 FROM HARRISBURU. Th Drail-Uck 4a the Senate View of Senator Brooke, mil Ingfclt, Ituckalew, "White, Connell, and Wallace on the Situation Major dimming Oreat Speech-New Article of the Democratic Creed. Prom Our Otcn Corretpondnit. Harkisbcro, April 6, 1871. Adjourned again, and the old story nothing done. The wheels of legislation are squarely locked, and both houses have been gradually degenerating until one farce follows another without any sort of variation. The Senate de Totes a considerable portion of each day to a discussion of the question when it shall meet, and how lone it shall sit to do nothing. Brooke insists upon meeting a little earlier each day, .so that nothing may be done with as much method as possible. Sometimes he wants an hour more, sometimes half an hour; eometlmes a few minutes more, and, rather than miss, he would take a few odd seconds more to enable the Senate to do as little as possible in the most Improved waj. He has now offered his resolution sixty-nine times, and has got so far on that he comes within one of carrying it. Being so near success, he feels encouraged to persevere, and it is understood that he will make his motion ninety-six times more if necessary. Billingfelt expends himself on the unexpended balance of the treasury. Everybody agrees with him in theory, but as there are just thirty-two other ways than his own, considered to be better than his way, it is thought that he Is net likely to succeed earlier than A. D. 1900. Buckalew believes that free voting Bhould be re duced to vulgar fractions, and that suffrage should depend upon an intricate knowledge of addition, multiplication, subtraction, simple and compound division, and simple fractions. Ills theory is that the multiplication table should be made part of the fundamental law of the State, and that cumulative and fractional voting should be made leading features of the Nine Million bill, the Raid bill, the Public Commission bills, and should bo in corporated Into the Declaration ot Indepen dence at the coming centennial celebration. It Is thought that he will succeed. White believes that the Shorter Catechism is not orthodox as to man's chief end; at least, he thinks that the manner of expressing the great purpose of min could have been improved. He regards the executive chair as the great conundrum man is called upon to solve, and he is at it, with reason able prospects of success. Council's chief con viction is that a good Senator should always continue a Senator, and he now proposes to run nine times more and then gracefully retire for the most hopeful of the rising genera tion in his district. He should not commit himself hastily to his withdrawal from public life twenty-seven years hence. Wallace has convinced White that seventeen Democratic Senators can outvote sixteen Republican Sena tore; and he insists alao that if the Democrats elect the Governor and both branches of the Legislature, and the President of the United States, and several other smaller officers in 1872, thty will pretty much have control of the Gov ernment. Men get far-seeing by practical expe rience in pnblic life. He is looking up for a peg for his hat. ' The great feature of the week was th? mas terly oration of Major John Cummings, of Sny der, in the House. It occupied forty-Blx hours in the delivery, and ran through the whole week. It is regarded as the most lucid exposi tion of the political questions of the day that has yet been given this session. On one or two points, however, he was so unfortunate as to differ witn his party. He insisted that the "Local Option" law should be applied to the selection of the place for the centennial celebra tion of American Independence in A. D. 1975 and A. D. 2076, and attempted to interpolate It Into the party creed. It was sharply resisted by Schnatterly, Chalfant, Ellis, Hall and others; but Cummlngs discussed it for eleven hours and silenced opposition. Ills theo ries of the pre-Adamite existence on this planet aUo somewhat disturbed his party harmony. He smoothed the point, however, by declaring that if Mr. Buchanan had lived before Adam, he would have been a rising man. He also took the bold ground, regardless of its startling effect upon both parties, that if our sectional diliicultles had been amicably settled before the bom bardment of Sumter, there would have been no war. This bold ' assumption riled the Republicans, who could not but infer from the minuteness with which the eloquent speaker discussed the proposition for an entire cession, that he argued inferentlally the improba bility of Grant reaching the Presidency had there been no Shiloh, nor Vicksburg.nor Appomattox. )n the grave issue as to the intoxicating quali ties of lager beer, he was very diffuse and con fused, but be asserted; in conclusion, with great emphatic, that if a man drank lager beer and did get intoxicated, that delectable beverage must be vindicated against all imputations of intoxica ting properties. His peroration most eloquently portrayed the necessity of the Fourth of July coming five times a year, and of the Democracy carrying all the elections hereafter to be held. Say what they will, the Mai or has not felt the frosts of seventy winters without gathering knowledge as the sands have run. He is the cleverest man in the House, and can run more votes than any other Democrat on the beautiful Susquehanna. MI SICAL A.1D PKAItlATlC. The City Ainuaeuieiits.

The United States Senate yesterday ad journed over until Monday. The Hoaso was not in session, and reassembles at the same time. General Pleasonton, of the Cavalry Corps Association, has called a meeting of that body, to be held on the 10th day of next month, in Boston. The fnneral of tbe Rev. Father Taylor took place at the Seamen's Temple, Boston, yesterday, and was largely attended, the re mains being deposited at Mount Hope Ceme tery, witn Masonic rites. Ine striking miners in the vicinity of Scranton, on Thursday afternoon, commenoed rooking hostile demonstrations against those who bad resumed work, and yesterday morn- nig a oana oi ine lawless desperadoes, to tne number of five hundred, armed with clubs, muskets, and revolvers, visited the mines and shot some of the workmen down in cold blood, llapidly gaining in numbers, the rioters en deavored to blow up the mines and destroy railways. The civil authorities finding them selves nnable to cope with the insurgents telegraphed for aid, and the command of General E. 8. Oflborne promptly responded. Tbe Governor issued n proclamation, and troops from various parts of the State are to be ready, if necessary, to maintain the dig nity of the Uws by the force of arms. Foreign Affairs. The party of conciliation are redoubliner their efforts. Terror reigns in Paris and the prisons are crow ded. General Cluseret is reorganizing the National Guards. The Government troops retain the con quered positions. A great many murders have recently been committed in Paris. The forces of the Commune are becom ing bolder and stronger. German intervention is thought to bo the only hope for the people of Paris. Ine situation in and around Pans is hourly growing more and more alarming. A despatcn trom Pans says several shells have burnt within the walls in the Avenue da Imperatnce. The Commune has prohibited the hold ing of the publio meeting called in Paris to promote means of conciliation. The Communists are determined to con tinue the struggle, and have greatly strength ened the fortifications at Montmartre and Batignolles. A despatch from Versailles of the night of the Gth says the cannonade and musketry firiDg continued all that afternoon to the sonth of Paris, between the insurgent position at Alontrouge ana that of tne Government at Chatillon. A battle raged yesterday between Chatil lon and Fort Vanvres, and the slaughter mast have been great, as the despatch conveying the news says that women and children, frantio with grief, were searching the ambu lances as they arrived in Paris for the bodies of their husbands and fathers. THE COAL TROUBLES. Proclamation of Governor Geary. Harrisburo, April 7, 1871. Pennsylvania: In tbe name and by the authority of the Com monwealth of Pennsylvania, I, John W. Geary, Governor oi tne said common wealth: A l'ROCLAMATION. Whereat, The recent suspension of work by the miners In tbe anthracite coal region of the State. and the subsequent imposition by the transporting companies of prohibitory rates have entailed great ana manliest evus upon miners, operators, con sumers, manufacturers, and others; and Whtrtm. Ail enorts oi tne Executive ana ine friends of law and social order have failed to har monize the contllctlnir Interests and brlnK about an amicable adjustment of existing dirlicultles; and Wlierta, The recent investigation before a com mittee of tbe Senate has failed to provide any remedy for existing evils, or to accomplish anything towards the desired adjuatinent, or to give promise of relief to a suffering people ; and Whereon, as usual in sucn cases, tne unnatural. aggravated, and unlawful conilict between labor and capital has resulted, as I am advised, in breaches of tbe peace and tbe destruction of life and property at tne city oi ttcrauton anu otner places id tne mining regions of tbat vicinity, and, assuming the shape of mob violence on the part of the miners and others, further threatens the lives and property or law abiding citizens and the temporary subversion of the laws, and calls for prompt and ernelent reme dies: now. then-fore, I, John W. deary, Governor of tbe said Commonwealth, by virtue of the power and authority vested in me Dy tbe constitu tion and laws, do hereby proclaim and declare, rirst. That it is unlawful for any person or asso ciation of persons by violence, threats or other co ercive means to prevent any laborers or miners from working when they please, for whom they please, ana at sucn wages as iney piease, ana auee unlaw ful by such violence or threats to deter or prevent the owners or operators of mines from employing whomsoever they may choose to employ and at such wages as may be agreed npon between the employer ana tne persons empioyeu. Second. That it is nniawiui ior any raiiroaa or other transportation company, in subversion of the objects or its creation, to impose rates of freight or transportation intended to do ana waicn are sub stantially prohibitory, or to combine with others to enect tbe same ends, and thus create, prolong, or aggravate existing evns. Third. Tbat it is unlawful at all times and under all circumstances, for persons to assemble in a riotous or tumultuous manner, and, under grievances either actual or pretended, to commit breaches of the neace. destroy property, or enaanger or take tne lives of others, and thus subvert and nullify tbe laws and subject tbe good name of the State to humilia tion and reproacn. Fourth. Tbat reliable information having been received that these riotous assemblages are too large andpowtrful to be dispersed or suppressed by the local autherltiei of Scranton, whleh nave called on me for aid, I have Invoked tbe military power of the State to suppress the riots and mobs at Berauton, and wherever else in tbe Commonwealth such un lawful assemblages may be found ; and under the conviction that the time has come for a complete settlement for the present and future of the unlawful complications and dltllcultles under which the people now suffer, I have hUo Invoked the civil power of tho State against tbe railroad and other transportation com panies for the misuse and abuse of their corporate lights and privileges, and will enforce all tbe reme dies authorized by the laws of the land, and I call npon all military organizations to hold themselves in readiness to support 'be civil authorities when ever tbereuuto required, and upon all civil magis trates, oiilcers, sun citizens, lu their several spheres of action or influence, to sustain and enforce the laws against all oiieuders in any wise responsible for the evils and wrongs under which we now suffer.
