BBDFOBD. T. 4. FRIDAY. APRIL 1 1850. HOW IT WORKS Free-traders complain terribly about the hardships and high prices eaused by a pro tective tariff. This is well illustrated in tLe steel trade. Before the war all our steel was imported, and foreigners had control o( our markets. Protection during the war built up the manufacture of steel in the I'nited States to compete with the foreign manufacturer. The result is that to day, iu spite ol the high price of labor, we buy steel with paper inoDey several cents pier pound cheaper thau we could before the war, when wages were low and we had no protection. The manufacture of copper sitows a similar advautage from protection. Previous to the passage of the bill increas ing the duty on copper, we had compara lively no manufactures of eopjier though we had the richest mines in the world. Since then we have had manufactures built up until we now complete with the British manufactures. The result is that copper is not only much cheaper at home but even iu London it is only about half as high as leforc our manufacturers were protected. Previous to the erection of our niauufac turics of copper it sold for $550 per ton in London, now it sells for about S3OO per ton, cheaper than ever before. Here we see that not only our own people, but also the people of foreigu countries were greatly benefitted by the protection given to Amer ican manufacturers. The same rule holds good in iron and every other manufacture for which wc possess facilities. In iron a in copper we have the finest ores and coal in the world, and a few years of liberal and judicious protection will so build up the manufacture and produce competition among the producers of ircn that we will I get it, like copper, cheaper than ever be- i fore in the world. So it is with woolen, cotton and silk manufactures. In silk nine years have made an immense change in the : trade. In 185'J we imported $20,000,000 \ worth of silks from Fraoct; in 1868 after a I lew years of protection, we were able to supply our own market to a largo extent, and only imported about $6,000,000 worth. | and kept the other $14,000,000, that we would have expended under free-trade, at home to pay and support American labor- j crs. How people can be duped to believe 1 that a policy that enables us to do our own manufacturing, employ our own people at good wages and keep our money at homc and ourselves out of debt abroad, is any thing else than highly beneficial we cannot comprehend. The argument of' the free traders that protection is only for the bene fit of manufacturers is simple nonsense, for every school-boy knows that when any branch of business is highly profitable, peo ple arc induced to engage in it, and that the competition thus brought about soon brings prices to a reasonable rate, just as j we have shown above in regard to copper j and steel. The argument that it creates a monopoly is also fallacious, for free-trade not only itself creates a monopoly, but that monopoly is a foreign one and has no other j aim than to extort from us the highest , prices they can possibly procure, as soon as | they can break down our own manufactu rers. On the contrary manufactures built up in our own country make home mar kets, gives good wages to labor and pro mote general prosperity, while competition soon brings prices down to the lowest rates consistent with prosperity to themselves and the country. U HO are the POOR MAN'S I'KIENDS? The tariff'bill now/lending in Congress, prepared by the Republican Committee of Mays and Means, propose to reduce the duties on tea and coffee, u .iking a reduction of $60,000,000 in the revenue. The cheap cning of tea and coffee bv the reduction would make a saving of a dollar and a half to every man, woman and ehi'd in the Uni ted States. These are articles usr-d and necessaries in every family, and one would suppose that such a redueticn would receive the hearty support of the party thai vaunts itself as the Poor Man's Friend, as the Democratic party does. What is the fact? M hy with all its hypocritical cant about friendship for the poor man, every member ol that party in ( ongress vehemently opposes this reduction in behalf of the poor. The -amc bill proposes to levy a duty of seven dollars per ton on foreign | ig iron import cd. and proportionately higher duties on more advanced manufacture? ol iron and steel. Now the greatest consumers of iron in this country arc the railroad monopolists and it is those rich, overgrown corporation? that clamor most loudly for cheap iron from abroad, and these same Democratic free traders are found clamoring for a reduction of the duty on iron so a? to benefit the al ready rich and tyrannical monopolies. They Know that a high duty on iron encourage? the manufacture here, gives an abundance ol remunerative employment to our laboring population and makes them prosperous and happy, but they care uot for the laboring poor, the Democratic party must court the favor of the rich and powerful, aud the poor may take care of themselves. Such is the friendship of the Democracy for the poor. How different the conduct of the Re pub lican party. It advocates the reduction ol duties on the necessaries of life and such things as reach the houses of the poorest of the land. It supports the policy that aims to build up manufactures of every kind in our own land, makes markets for our farm er- aud gardeners and gives an abundance o. well paid work to all who are willing to abor. Such is and ever has been the re cord of true Republicanism. It cares for the best interests of our own people. It protects the poor aud weak against the tieb and strong, and aims to make all prosper ous and happy by protecting our industries against the pauper labor of Europe. The ( ouiniittee ou the decline of Amer ican Commerce, show in their report that he former supremacy of our commerce was in good part attributable to the cheapness of ship building material, while wooden ships were in use. Wood is now superse ded and iron ships have the preference for all kmds of freight as well as for passengers. Maine and New England generally monop o i. 'ooden ship-building, but the change to iron will necessarily transfer this branch of our industry to the Delaware and other points convenient to eoal aud iron. This is a significant fact in connection with the re cent effort of Dawes and other New Eng land members of Congress to have our Navy lards transferred from Philadelphia to New London. League Island is destined yet to become the chief Navy Yard of the country for the building of iron war,ships, n the new era of iron ship-building Phila delphia and the Delaware will yet lead the van for the whole country. I HE President hs declared himself in favor of univets il amnesty and will send a I message to that effect to Congress as soon 1 as Georgia and Texas arc admitted. BAD FOR THE DEMOCRACY of THE 16th DISTRICT. We omitted to call attention to the fact, that in the cadetship investigation, a couple weeks ago, it was discovered that one Gen eral Alexander H. Coffroth while represent ing this District, some years ago, in Con gress, was unable to find a competent Demo cratic bov in the whole District and was obliged to go away up to N. Y. and D-oston, yes, even to hated New England, to find two boys able to enter West Poiut as cadets, i It has been unkindly hinted by evil minded parties that the immaculate General was paid for going so far from home to find cadets. As Congres3 has refused to in quire into the perlormances of Ex-members in the cadet-ship business, the world will never be enlightened on this point. Now in all charity, we will not charge the Gen eral with having sold his appointments, but we arc forced much against our will, to ' conclude that after searching the Democrat ic families in the 10th District and perhaps makiug a weary pilgrimage to other and remote parts of the State and finding no scion of Democracy bright enough to enter West Point, he, in this dire extremoity be i took himself to New England and there soon found two likely yankee boys, whom, out of pure love to New England, he hastened to install in snug berths at West Point It was a generous act, characteris tic of the General, no doubt. But tben what shall we say of the dullness and stu pidily of Pennsylvania Democracy in whose ranks not cveu ODO boy bright enough for a cadet could be found? Well we are not equal to the task of explanation. We will leave that to the General and bis Democrat ic friends, on the one condition that they must not charge him with having received pay. The General's above that. U'e hope the Democracy will present some brighter ! boys the next time they send a Democratic Congressman from this District. THE DIAMOND-WATT CASE; HOW DEMOCRATIC SENATORS ARE ELECTED. In the investigation of this case, Robert j B. Long, a ship carpenter by trade, and i working at this time for well-known and highly respectable ship builders iu the city j of Baltimore, testified that be came in the i same train on the night before the last Oe ; tober election with some Sfty five or sixty utcn, whom he knew to be Marylanders, to Philadelphia. That after their arrivel in j that city they were taken by some Phila delphia ward politicians to Nolan's tavern at Eighth and ISansotn streets, where they were entertained, and that many of them voted the DEMOCRATIC TICKET more than | once, at various precincts in the 4th ward. That these men were promised $lO apiece and their expenses. Some of them received the money, but others did not. This party was divided into gangs of eight to ten—that some one would approach the party when ever tbey came near an election poll, hand iheui a slip of paper containing the names and residences of those whom they should personate and also a ticket: after which they would walk up to the poll window and hand the ticket in without being challenged. The party was in this manner marched to ; various polls in the Fourth ward, and re peat! d the same operation early and often. j Such are the devices resorted to by the j Democracy to carry elections. No wouder they opposed the Registry law so fiercely. Fair, houest elections find no favor in the eyes of Democratic leaders. When the people repudiate them for their dis honesty and treason, they hope by fraud and crime to still force themselves into power and prey upon the people. I BASE INGRATITUDE.—The Gazette of last week, at the end of the report of Mr. Ful ton, indulges in a most uncalled for and un grateful fling at the very meaDS that have built up our industry and that has rendered possible the development of our own min < ral rc-sourccs. The Gazette knows, or ought soon to learn, that the very protee tection atrainst which it embraces every op port unity cast its miserable platitudes of British free-tradrs, has been the means of keeping up the Broad Top road and of bring ing iron manufacturers into our county. Without protection, the present interest in the iron manufacture would not exist, and not a dollar of capital would this day be in rested in the development of our iron in*ere-t-\ Ihe removal of the duties which n..w foster our manufactures would, in a few months, stop the furnace at Riddles burg, close the mining operations in Rroad Top and consign us to the poverty and idle i i.e-s of the free-trade era of years ago. Yet the Gazette has the br&z- n impudence in 'he guise of pretended friendship to oppose the best interests of all our railroad, mining and manufacturing interests. Party influ ence before everything else lias always been its motto, and there is small hope of its ina prtivcmcßt. ! he New York Nun, a paper not given to 'he praise of public meD, thus complimeuts Pennsylvania's new Senator: Senator Scott, of Pennsylvania, infused j into the recent debate in the Senate on the funding bill something extremely rare and much wanted in that body—namely, genuine hnancial ability and a thorough knowledge of his subject. It is refreshing to listen to a man who brings to the discussion of the topic he treat?, knowledge and information which spring from an intimate acquaintance with it, both practical and theoretical. It is comforting to know also, that we still Lave material in the country out of which to make first class finance ministers, if we but knew where to look for it. GEN. SHERMAN is reported as opposed to the A.'niy Retrenchment bill, on the grood that retrenchment should begin in the civil rather than in the military branch of the Government service. Precisely. Gen. Sher man is paid $18,750 per year; Chief-Justice Chase, $0,500. Retrenchment should begin in the civil service by all means. Gen. Sheridan is paid $14,803 per year; Vice- President Colfax, SS,OOO. Retrenchment should begin in the civil branch of the Gov ernment service. Gen. Ilalieck—our own darling Halleek—is paid $9,862 per year; the Secretary of War, $3,000. Sure enough retrenchment should begin in the civil ser vice" Of course Gen. Sherman is right THE President supports the report of the committee on the decline of American Commerce by a message- to Congress in which he strongly urges, some effective measures for restoring our waning Com merce to its proper position and rank as a branch of our national industry. The re port shows that we are paying from $20,- 000,000 to $30,000,000 annually to foreign ' shipping for freights, which should be carried by our own marine. The com- j mittee propose to foster the restoration ofi our commerce by direct subsidies and draw- j backs of various kinds. 1 HERE are 2511 pensioners on the State 1 for services in the war of 1812. On the supposition that there are not 2511 persons in the S'ate over 75 yeais of age the House has appointed a committee to investigate the validity of the pensions granted and to cut of all unlawful applicants. THE appropriation made to our com mon Schools by the House committee ha?, been reduced $250,000 by the Senate com mitteo in their report. We sincerely hopt the reduction will not be made. We need an increase rather than a reduction. We hope to see the friends of our Common Schools take a firm stand against any r< - d uctiou. ANOTHER effort was made in the Legis lature last week, by the Democracy, to re peal the law abolishing Spring elections. It failed as it deserved to do. The whol< object was to avoid the effect of the registry law, so as to open the way to old sty 1 • Democratic frauds. ' THE revenue from income taxes in Eng land in 1868 was 10,534,768 less than thai of the United States for the same year. Two Missouri Post Masters have recntlj been sentenced to ten years imprisonmei.i for robbing the mails. THE legislature has fixed the 7th oi April as the day for final adjournment. OCR RAILROAD AND COAL AND IKON INTERESTS AGAIN. We published a short article two week? ago in reference to the above mentioned in terests. We are since indebted to Joht Fulton Esq., resident Engineer of the Huntingdon and Broadtop Railroad, for si copy of his report to the President am! Directors of the road upon the importance of the Bridgeport & Bedford extension, and the immense value of the coal and iron in tcrests through wbieh the road will pass. The report is accompanied with a valnabk chart showing the relative locations of the Broad Top, Alleghany and Cumberland coa fields, and the ore beds lying between them as well as the location and connections o: the H. A B. T. 11. R., and the projected Bedford A Bridgeport Railroad. Wc ap pend the report in full as one of great im portance to the people of our County and i hope they will give it a careful perusal. Ii cannot fail to attract the attention of capi talists abroad, and promote the rapid de velopment of our mineral resources. In it, Mr. Fulton has done a good work for uf for which he deserves the thanks of out people. The report is as follows : "The belt of iron ores flanking the Broad Top Coal Fields on the west, and extend j ing from Huntingdon to the State line, be j long to and can be controlled by Broad Top interests. The main portion of it is along side the Broad Top Railroad, and will he smelted by coke from the Broad Top Field The portion of' this belt between Bloody ; Bun and the State line—ahout fourteen | miles of goi>d ore—will be smelted at Bloody 1 Bun; the furnaces can he connected with the Railroad by a short branch from the west end of River Bridge, when it shall be built. A tram-road, with a small locomotive will probably be used in conveyiug the iron ore and limestone to the furnaces. It is a remarkable fact that the largest developments of iron ores flank the Broad Top Coal Field. South ward, up Black Valley the regular line of Ttissey's Mourn tain is broken up by Bean's Core ; near the State line beyond this, the measures are ir regular, and split into terminal hills, the iron ore thinning out and uncertain. These surgeot iron ores flanking Broad Top are again repeated in the loop curving around the valley in which the town of Bed ford is situated. This belt of iron ore is rich and valuable, and has, to some extent, heed secured by parties interested in Broad Top._ The most valuable portion of this belt is near the town of Bedford, curving round Dutch Corner, and throwing a double prong southward towards Cumberland. It is reasonable to infer that as the ore de posits go southward they will encounter, in a modified manner, the Bean's Cove lin> of disturbances, declining in quantity and value. Bedford, as a centre for furnaces, will be in a position from which all the ores of that belt can be reached by lateral roads. With the extension of the Broad Top Railroad to Bedford, the carrying of coal for iron smelting there, with the native trade ol the district, will, in part, be secured to the Broad Top interests. The third Belt of ore, and the last in the series as it plunges under the Alleghanies, is found west of Bedford, flanking for quite a distance the proposed railroad from Bed ford to Bridgeport—sixteen miles. That Broad Top should secure this connecting link, is an important consideration, in view of the rapidly growing interest in the iron ores, and the now eager paesuit of their ac quisition in a region w here pig metal can be manufactured at a small cost. But there is another feature in this con nection which will exert an important influ ence in the future operations of the Broad Top Railroad. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company are now erecting a first classs Rolling Mill at Cumberland, to roll rails for their own road and its branches. This, when in operation, will induce an in creased demand for good pig iron; and as the Mount Savage Iron Works is running mainly on the carbonate iron ores of the Coal Measures, they will undoubtedly reach out for the nth fossil ore aloog the Bridge port link. This connection will therefore be made if only for the supply of iron ore which it will op>en up, and the passenger trade to Bedford Springs. The road from Bedford to Bridgeport can be graded as cheaply as the link from Mount Dallas to Bedford. But if this link is made as a branch of the B. k 0. R. R. the operations in Cumber land Coal will be ready to compete at Bed tord with the Booad Top. Tbis competi tion would neutralize, to some extent, the benefits to Broad Top, by the extension of the Road from Mount Dallrs to Bedford. With the Bedford and Bridgeport division iD its charge, however, it could regulate and entirely control all competition from outside parties. It seems to me that with the well-defined amount of mineral resources presented in this intervening territorvand the sure source of trade which must follow its manufacture, that it is of sufficient importance to induce those connected with the Broad Top inter est to loe no time in securing a position to command the carrying trade of this wide field o! productive industry, which will be so much in addition to the business and ton nage lying more immediately on the line of your Road. The owners of Coal lands and shippers of Broad Top Coal should also feel a deep in terest in securing a home market for a por tion of this coal, at least, thus supplement ing the trade, and measurably removing the sharp competition now existing in the East em Coal Market. A furnance of the size of that at Riddles burg will consume in a year 22,000 tons of coal, 8,5n0 tons of limestone, and 20,000 tons of iron ore, producing 7.600 to 8,000 tons of pig iron. Twenty furnaces would require 140,000 tons of coal annually. It is now decided that at least two addi tional furnaces will be erected oa the line of your Road this season, with the probability that two more will be commenced before the close of the year. The loop of iron ore around Bedford con tains four millions of tons, calculating the rich fossiliferous ores only, and the Western line or range, three millions of tons. The developments during the past year, of the three bands of iron ore deposits flank ing the Broad Top Coal Field, have exhibit ed the presence of almost inexhaustible vuantiiies of iron ore. It is 20 feet 1 inch thick, near Coffee Run, in a compact seam of almost pure ore. This—the Levant iron ore—has been tested, and is now being used in the Cambria Com pany's furnaces at Johnstown. The Hematite and Fossiliferous iron ore-, of the lower deposits, have been opened and worked at many points in the region, yield ing superior ore and showing unusual thick ness in the deposits. Calculations made with great care, from reliable data, show that in the three large deposits of iron ore flanking the Broad Top field on the West, estimated to adipth con veniently reached above water level, there are at least five hundred millions of tons of iron ore. This quantity of iron ore will re quire, for its reduction in the furnace, moie than five hundred millions of tons of coal. The extension of the main line of the Rail road to Bedford and a branch up Black Va!> ley will develop Urge addition*! quantities of iron ore. The pre or angeraent evident in the topog raphy of the Region for the concentration of the iron ores, fuel and flux, on the neut ral line of gravity, along the Railroad and river base, is truly remarkable, for the belt of the iron ore and the Coal Held are notched at short intervals, by the valleys and streams, transversely to their length, so that locations are opeued for gravitating the iron ores and fuel to the furnace sites along the Railroad and river. Nor is this new and wide lield of produc tive industry shadowed by a singls element of doubt, for sufficient practical work has been done in it to settle definitely and con clusively all considerations of Coat, Coke, Iron Ores and Flux. They havo all been proved to be of excellent quality, and the fact exhibited that a superior pig iron can bo made in this region somewhat cheaper than any other locality in the State. The outlying and detached position of the j Broad Top Coal Field, have frequently led i inquiring minds to investigate the design of j its isolated posture, standing among and I surrounded by the bold and frequent flex ; ures of the Juniata District. The recent I ; developments of immense deposits of iron | ore, the frequent concurrence of their out : crops as they rise and sink in these wave i i flexures, suggest the connecting link ; and the answer is evident: The Broad Top Mountain is a storehouse of mineral fuel, i set out in a region rich in iron ores lying at the base of the Coal Mountain. The flames from one large furnace glare up like ancient signal fires, announcing that the design in j the deposition of the ores and fuel is undcr . ; stood. Other furnaces will rapidly rise up ' and answer this signal, until the wide va! | ley flanking the Coal Field will glitter with | the fires of furnaces dotted along its length, i and resound with the din of an industry so | long neg'ee ed and r'strained. | FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT, j LETTER FROM HARRISBURG. HARRISBURQ, Pa., March 25. LSTO. SOLDIERS' AND SAILORS - MONUMENT. A hill has passed the House providing for the erection of a monument to the memory of the soldiers and sailors who were slain, or lost their lives in the late Rebellion. The bill provides that the monument shall be erected in the public grounds at Harrisburg, immediately in front of the western porch of the capitol, and appropriates twenty thousand dollars out of the State Treasury for that purpose. The bill elicited a long and partizan debate in the House, and was passed by a pretty close party vote. It will likely pass the Sen ite. THE WATT-DIAMOND Contested election ease of the Senate has been closed on the part of the sitting mem ber, Mr. Watt, and the committee will meet this evening for the purpose of hearing re butting testimony. The investigation has j unearthed a series of Democratic frauds that are astounding, and as the case now stands : Mr. IV att is entitled to the seat by a hand ! some majority. The testimony at the last j meeting showed that a party of Baltimore j ans, to the number of about sixty, were em ; ployed and came to Philadelphia on election I day aud voted the Democratic ticket early and often, in their usual manner. For this work they were to be paid ten dollars each and their expenses. THE RAILROAD HILL Passed last week, which takes nine and a i half millions of railroad bonds out of the I sinking fund of the State Treasury, and re places them with bonds of roads not yet con structed, has not been acted upon by the Governor, It is generally thought that it will receive his approval, although there is a possibility of a veto. A great diversity of I opinion exists in reference to the propriety of the measure, and a good deal of opposi tion has been developed to the bill since its passage. THE NEW METROPOLITAN POLICE BILL lor the city of Philadelphia has passed the Senate, and has been reported upon favorably by ihe committee to which it wa referred in the House. There is little ques tion of its passing that body, though its ap proval by the Governor is still considered doubtful. THE GENERAL APPROPRIATION BILL i Has been under discussion in the Senate j the most of the week, and only about half ! of the sections disposed of. The appropria tion to common schools is made five hundred thousand dollars, instead of seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars as it passed the House. The pay of members is fixed at one thousand dollars and mileage, the salary of the transcribing clerks increased two hun dred dollars, and that of the other officers remains as fixed by the law of ISGS. The question of affording State aid to private charities is again raised in the discussion of the biil. Ibe House included quite a num ber. but the Seoate Finance Committee cut out all not recommended by the State Board of ehariiies. In the Senate a strong effort is being made to get them restored. The policy of granting State aid to nearly every local charity that comes to Harrisburg and asks for it is subject to so many abuses that it is questionable whether it ought to be longer continued. The creation of a State Board of charities, it was supposed, would have the effect of settling the.-e questions, but the tendency of the Legislature is to override their recommendations and again open the door to giving State aid to private institutions in all portions of the .State. DOWN ON GAMBLERS. The House has passed, and a committee iu the Senate reported favorably, a bill to prevent gambling and lotteries in this State. The penalty for gambling is a fine of one thousand dollars and imprisonment not to exceed five years. This provision applies to keepers of games. Lottery dealers are punished in the same way, but those who are gulled by the purchase of tickets are ex empted. The duty of watching for such games is imposed upon constables, and keepers of hotels. inns and restaurants are forbidden, under severe penalties, from al lowing games iu their houses. The relatives of those who lose are enabled to sue and re cover in any court of record. The hill is quite severe in its provisions, but perhaps not more so than the character of the mat ters legislated upon requires. POLITICAL GOSSIP. Quite a number of prominent politicians have lately been in Harrisburg, looking after legislation, which has given rise to con siderable political discussion. The question of the next Governorship thus early re ceived its share of attention, and the chances of certain aspiring politicians were fieely gossipped over. In connection with the Republicau nomination were mentioned the names of Hon. W. W. Ketehum, of Lu zerne; Col. Elisha VV. Davis, at present a member of the House, from Philadelphia; Gen. Harry White, State Senator, from In diana; Gen. Hartranft. of Montgomery, the present Auditor General; Gen. James L. Seifridge, of Northampton, the present ( hief ( ,erk of the House, and Hon. James L. Graham, State Senator, from Allegheny. On the Democratic side the most prominent gentlemen named are Hon. Wm. A. Wal lace, State Senator from Clearfield; Hon. VV m. A, Galbraith, of Erie; Hon. Charles li. Buckalew, State Senator from Columbia, and Gen. George W. Cass, of Allegheny. THE BORDER CLAIM BILI. has been abandoned by its friends, the Governor having intimated that he would veto the bill in case it snuld pass. FINAL ADJOURNMENT. Both branches of the Legislature have agreed to adjourn, finally, on Thursday, the /tb of April. XLlut co*!l;urss-sKcoM SESSION. MONDAY, March HI. —SENATE, —Mr. Ab bott from the Committee on Military Af fairs, reported a bill, which WBB passed, providing for the distribution of arms among the Southern States according to their quota under existing laws. The Geor gia hill was up again, and discussed, but no action taken. Tn the HOI.SE. Mr. Buiks introduced a hill to promote eotntuorec and amity between the United States and Mexico by encour aging American citizens in developing the resources of that country. Referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs. Mr. Lawrence submitted a bill for the payment of the entire public debt and the reduction of taxation, ile stated that the >ill was prepare 1 hv one of the ablest minds in the country. Referred to the Committee of Ways and Means. A bill was also introduced by Mr. Wil liams, declaring it to be the duty of Con gress to provide for the funding of the na tionnl debt at a lower rate of interest, and to extend the time for its payment to a pe riod when it will be least oppressive to the people, and that the interest-bearing debt of the United States should not be increas ed by causing a surrender of any part of the present circulating medium not hearing in terest, and by the substitution therefor of interest-bearing bonds. Adopted. After which the Tariff bill was discussed. TUESDAY, March 22 d. —In the Senate several bills were introduced and referred. After which the consideration of the claim of Adelbert Ames, Senator elect from Mis sissippi, to a seat as Senator, was resumed but the Senate adjourned before anything was accomplished. In the House the 1 'tab bill, reported from the Committee on Territories some weeks since, was taken up. It provides for the abolition of polygamy. This led to a warm discussion which oecnpied all the time. WEDNESDAY, March 23d.—In the Son nto the bill to promote the civilization of the Indians and their progress in agricultural pursuits was taken up and passed. The case of General Amos was then taken up and occupied the balance of the timr with no definite result. HOUSE. —The Speaker laid before the House a message from the President, call attention to the decline of American com merce, as shown in the report of the Spe cial Committee, and earnestly urgiug early action thereon. He says the fact that thir ty millions of dollars are annually paid to foreign vessels as passage money is humilia ting. Ho is of the opinion that direct ton nage-subsidies are less liable to abuse than indirect n>-i-tanee. Mr. Brooks said he was very glad that the President had recognized the great fact of the destruction of American commerce, and hop d it would secure speed? action, especially in connection with the Tariff bill. The Utah bill was then taken un. and Mr. Hooper proceeded to address the Hou-e in defence of polygamy. Other speeches weie made, after which several sections of the bill were then stricken on'. Among them the sections confiscating the property of persons convicted of polygamy, and em powering the President to send troops and enlist 40,00(1 volunteers when ho might de- mit necessary. Al-o, the section appro priating SIOO,OOO for the relief of person rendered destitute or homeless by the en forcement of this act. The bill was then passed finally, and the House, at half-past four o clock, took a re cess until half pat seven o'clock this eve ning—the session to be devoted to the de bate nn the Tariff bill. During the evening session several speech es were made by Messrs. Hoi in sin and John son, when the House adjourned. THURSDAY, March 24th.—Immediately after the reading of the journal of the pro ceedings, pn motion of Mr. Sunnier, the Senate went into executive se-.-ionfor the consideration of the San Domingo treaty; and, at 4.40 I*. M., adjourned. In the House, the message of the Presi dent relative to the decline of American commerce was referred. Mr. Logan, from tli-- Uoimuittec oti Mili tary Affairs, presented a final report on the cadet-ship traffic. The committee find that quite a number of cadets have been appoint ed from di-triets in which they did not re side. These irregularities arose from a late con-1 ruction of the law by the War and N'a vy Departments, but the abuses arc now being corrected. In eases other than those already reported to the House, the testi mony is generally confl cting, and the com mittee is tin-n n.ou-ly of the opinion that the facts do not justify a report of the testi mony or further action in these cases. The committee respectfully recommends the pa-rage of the bill and resolutions ac companying the report. The bill provides 'hat a cadet must have resided two years in a di-tiict from which he is appointed prior to his uominatiou. At least two competent per-ons must -wear to such residence of two vnr-; that if it shall 1* discoveted at any time that an appoint rurnt as a cadet was procured through pe cuniary influences the cadet .-hall he at ouce dismissed. Mr. a-ked that action be first taken on : he bill. Mr. Niblack moved to amend by insert ing one year instead of two. Mr. Logan accented the amendment, and the bill was oassed. Mr. Logan asked that a vote he taken OD 'he resolution—that if is in evidence that Commodore J i din 11.

NASHVILLE, March 27.— Tho action of the President, in failing to comply with Governor hientor's requisition for troops, is thought here to mean something more than was a' first supposed. It lias (teen stated that Governor Center made the requisition in order to secure from the President a re cognition of the State of Tennessee, and hi authority as Chief Magi.-trnic of the Com monwealth, in order to prevent any move ment looking to reconstruction by Congress. Governor Senior has been summoned to ap pear before the Reconstruction Committee at Washington by General Butler, when he j will testify as to the necessity of sending j troops into Tennessee by the National Gov ernment. Governor Seoter seems to un derstand that the result will be a total re construction of the State. He will with draw the requisition, and declare that good order now exists throughout the Slate. Governor feenter leaves lor a-hington to morrow. Partial returns from the election in dif ferent parts of the S'ate show that the new Constitution has btcu ratified by about 40,- OHO majority.

Q ROVER A BAKER'S SEWING MACHINES. The following are selected from thousands of testimonials of similar character, as ex pressing the reasons for the preference for the GKOVRK & Bsktit Machines Over all others. * * "I like the Grover A Baker Machine, in the first plaae, because, if I bad any other 1 should still want a Urover A Baker: and, having a (irover & Baker, it answers the pur pose of all the rest. It does a greater variety of work and it is easier to learn than any oth er."—.Vis. J. ('. Croly (Jenny June.) * "I have Lad several years' experi ence with a Grover A Baker Machine, which has given me great satisfaction. I think the Giover-A Baker Machine is mere easily man aged, and less liable to get out of order. I prefer the Grover A" Bakpr, decidedly."— Mrs. I)r. Watts, New York. "1 have had one in my family for some two years: and from what I know of its workings, and from the testimony of many of my friends who use the same, I can hardly see how anything could be more complete or give better satisfaction."— Mrs. Gen. Grant. * * "I believe it to be the best, all things considered, of any that 1 have known. It is very simple and easily learned: the sewing from the ordinary spools is a great advan tage. the 6tick is entirely reliable: it does or namental work beautifully; it is not liable to get out of order."— Mrs. A. M. Spooner, 30 Bond Street, Brooklyn. ° "i am acquainted with the work of the principal machines: and I prefer the Gro ver A" Baker to them all, because I consider the stitch more elastic. I buve work now in the house which was done nine years ago, which is still good."— Mrs. Dr. MeCready, .So. 43 East 23a street, New York. * * "More than two-thirds of all the sewing done in my family for the last two years has been done by Grover & Baker's Machine, and I never had a garment rip or need mending, except those rents which frolicsome boys will make in whole cloth. It is in my opinion hy far the most valuable of any I have tried."— Mrs. Henry (Card Beecher. "The Grover A Baker Sewing Ma chine has rendered in every respect the most perfect satisfaction.

Ste phen 11. Tyng. " "I find the Grover A Baker stitch will wear as long as the garments do—out wear the garment, in fact. The stitcb will not break on bias seams, whan stretched, as others do: and neither does it draw the work." Mrs. Dr. Whiting. 4 East 24 th street, New York. * "We have a Grover A Baker Sewing Machine for seven years in constant use, hemming, felling, tucking, and everything that the fingers can do. It is preferred over all others on account of its durability of work, elasticity and strength of stitch, ease of move ment, and simplicity of construction."— Mrs. General Buel. * v "There could be no greater com fort in a family than a Grover A Baker Sew ing Machine. I have used one for the last nine or ten years, Bnd I think it is decidedly the best family Sewing Machine."— Mrs.Alice B. Whipple, wife of Rev. Dr. Whipple, Sec. Air. Miss. Association. * "I have had an opportunity of ex aminine and using other varieties of machines; but I very much prefer the Grover A Baker stitch, for strength, elasticity, and beauty. I have seen no other machine so simple in its construction, so easily understood and kept in order."—Mrs. E. I). Sanborn, St. Louis.

Tbe obvious rea son is, that it, is a more reliable and far more ef fectual remedy than any other. Those who have tried it, know that it cured tbem ; those who have not, know that it cures their neighbors aod friend?, and all know that what it does once it does a! ways—that it never fails through any fault or neglect of its composition. We have thousands upon thousands of certificates of their rewerkable cures of the following complaint,*, but such cures are known in every neighborhood, and we need not publish /hem. Adapted to all ages and con ditions in all climates ; containing neither calo mel or any deleterious drug, they may be tak-n with safety by anybody. Then sugar coating preserve? them ever fresh and makes them pleas ant to take, while being purely vegetable no harm can rise from tbeir use in any quantity. They operate by tbeir powerful influence on the internal viscera to purify the blood and stimu late it into healthy action--remove the obstruc tions of the stomach, bowls, liver, and other or. guns of the body, restoring tbeir irregular action to health, and by correcting, wherever they exist, such derangements as ar* the first origin of dis ease. Minute directions arc given in the wrapper on the box, for tbe following complaints, which these PILLS rapidly cure:--- For DYSPEPSIA or INDIGESTION, LIBT LESSNESS. LANGUOR and LOSS OF APPE TITE, they fhould be taken moderately to etiai ulate the stomach and restore its healthy tone and actior. For LIVER COMPLAINT and Us varum* symptoms. BILIO U S il EADA CH E, SICK IIBA CACHE, JA IN DICE <, r GREEN SICK NESS, BILIOUS COLIC A BILIOUS FEVERS, they should be jodltiously taken for each case, to correct the diseased action or remove the obit rue lions which cause it. For DYSENTERY or DIARRIHEA, but on mild dose in generally required. For RIIKUMATI M. GOUT, GRAVEL, PAL PITATJON OF THE HEART, PAIN IN TJIE SIDE, BACK and LOINS, they should be con tinuously taken, h- required, t>- change the dis eased action of the system. With such change those complaints disappear. For DROPSY and DROPSICAL SWELLINGS they should be taken in large and frequent doses to produce the effect of a draatic purge. For SUPPRESSION a large dose should be ta ken as it produces the desired effect by sympathy. As a DINNER PILL, take one or two PILLS to promote digestion and relieve the stomach. An occasional dose stimulates the stomach and bowels into healthy action, restores the appetite, and invigorate.' the system. Hence it is often advantageous where no serious derangement ex ists. One who feel* tolerably well, often finds that a dose of these Pills makes him feel decided ly better, from their cleansing and rcnovatingef feet on the digestive apparatus. DR. J. C.

This Pump ba been awarded the PIRST PRE MIUM at the Neil 1 York, Ohio, and Pennsylva nia state Fair*. This Pump never freezes, from the fact that the moment yon sfcpp puuq ing, the water gradually I drops back to a level with the water in the well; | con sequent! v you always get PURE COLD 1 WATER. It will force water any distance through pipe, and in case of FIItE, is valuable, as water may be thrown to tbe distance of from fifty to sixty feot from its mouth, by attaching 3 or four feet of small hose. It is DOUBLE ACTING, and can be worked with ease. It is just tbe thing to wash wagons, buggies, and water gar dens, Ac., ana every farmer and mechanic should have one of these pumps. As for Health, this Pump has leen prraoaneed by our leading Phy sicians as being one of the very best pumps now in use. It is generally known that wooden pumps hold the water in the stalk, and of course it tastes more or less of the wood. This Pump leaves all tbe water drop back just as soon as you atop pumping, to tbe level of the water in the well. So you get PURE COLD WATER from the bot tom of the well every time you draw a bucket full. There are about 92 of these pumps now in use in this county, for one and two years, and they have ALL given perfect satisfaction. Not one of these has frozen since they ha ve been put in. For reference I can give some of the very best men in our town and county. Call and see this pump work before purchasing any o'her.

THE GKEA T HESMEP.A TIM OE THE AGE A dressing which is at once agreeable, healthy, and effectual for preserving the hair. Faded or gray hair it vooii reh ired to it* original color tend the glote and fruhntst of youth. Thin hair is thickened, falling hair checked, and baldness often, though not always, cured by its use. Nothing can restore the hair where the follicles are destroyed, or the glands atrophied and decay ed. But such as remain can be saved for useful ness by this application. Instead of fouling the hair with a pasty sodimcnt, it will keep it clean and vigorous. Its occasional use will prevent the hair from turning gray or falling off, and conse- j qucntly prevent baldness. F'ree from those dele- j terious substances which m ike some preparations dangerous and injurious to the hair, the Vigor can only benefit but not harm it If wanted j merely for a HAIR ORESSIN , nothing else can be found so desirable. Contain ing neither oil nor dye, it does not -oil white cambric, and yet lasts longer on the hair, giving it a rich glossy lustre and a grateful perfume. Prepared by DR. J. C.
