WEDNESDAY, - - February a, Is 71. Hon. S. ecv. wbo J. Batard, of New Jcr beodcd tic Straight-out Democratic moTcmcnt, last Tar, bas joined tbe Republicans. Bradford county, in thi9 State, voted on tbc "local option law" on the 17th of last month. Tbc result was a majority of over two thousand against license. It is asserted that, although Gov ernor Geary had pardoned from the Penitentiaries sixty-nine convicts, during the last year of bis term, up to the 8th of January, yet that dur ingtbe remaining thirteen days he occupied the Gnberatorial chair, be contrived to add thirty-one more par dons to the list They are at the old game in Wash inton saving at the tap, and spilling at the bung A number of party offi cers have been reformed outofcxipt- ence,and nowin order to assist civil ser vice reform it is proposed to increase the pay of tbe beads of all the depart ments, chief clerks, Congressmen Ac, "The longer a man lives, the more he finds out" The Iowa City Republican says it is estimated that in tbe State fifty thousand bushels of corn a day is used asfuel, and will continue to be used at this rate for the next two months. Think of it three million bushels of corn to be used up as fuel in the next sixty days, besides tbe several mill ions of bushels already disposed of in the same way. A proposition will soon come be- a fore the Legislature of this State fa voring the division of Tioga county. Five thousand petitioners have made the request, and, if a majority of the voters of tbe couuty are in favor of the division, it will probably take place. The county was taken from Lycom ing county in 1864, and contained at that time three hundred inhabitants. It now holds thirty-five thousand souls. The trial of "Boss' Tweed for rob bing tbe city treasury of New York, has just ended by the discharge of the jury, because unable to agree. In tbe face of tbe direct proof, obtained through the testimony of one of his confederates, it is said tbe jury stood one for conviction, eleven for acquit tal. Can there be any doubt that tbe jury system of New York needs re vision, or abolition? The Constitutional Convention is trmntr to reform corruption in our o o - Legislature, by making tbe election of members,and the session of tbc body biennial We don't see exactly where the reform is to come in, unless it be on the principle that a member elect ed for two years will not have cheek sufficient to ask for another term, and that therefore, he will not have to "grab" enough to procure his-re-elec- tion. The sad story of the detection and exposure of Senator Fomeroy, in an attempt to bribe the Kansas Legisla ture into re-electing him to tbe Sen ate which is telegraphed over the country seems to us hardly proba ble, for divers reasons which we have not the space nor the inclina tion to enumrrate. bhould it turn out to be a conspiracy of his enemies to defeat him we 6hall not be surpris ed. Meanwhile we await tbe devel opment of the trial to take place be fore coming to a conclusion. A bill has been reported in our Legislature to appropriate one million of dollars towards the Centennial cel ebration in 187G. Considering tbe condition of our state finances, this is a very large sum to bestow upon this object. That this exposition will be of large benefit to tbe country, and to portions of the State, is undoubt ed, while to other sections its benefits are not as vet Terceptible. It will require plausible, if not sound reason ing, to reconcile toe average tax-pay er's mind to so large an appropriation. The franking privilege has been abolished. On Monday of last week the House passed the Senate bill, and the President has since signed it, making it a law, going into effect, we believe, on the first day of July next. Good-bye to Patent Office Reports and garden seeds for the ladies. We shall receive the'm no more forever, now that M. C.'s must pay their own po8tage.yL8 there will no longer be a call for tbe thousands of books and documents heretofore printed for free circulation, let some reformer move for the abolition of the national printing-office, and the furnishing of tbe necessary blanks, 4ca by the lowest bidder, and another great leak in the treasury will be stopped. Under the cry that it would be an encroachment on State rights, our Senate' under tbe lead of Mr. Ritan has passed resolution instructing our delegation in Congress to vote against the Postal Telegraph scheme. So far as we hare seen them, tbe reasons of the Senator are more speculative than real. If the government has the right to carry messages by mail, why not by telegraph 1 The countrp is just now congratulating itself apon tbe pros pect of yet cheayer postage, by rea son of the abolition of tbe franking privilege, when in steps this anti-pro-gressire Senator and his followers, and proclaims, you shall not add to this the blessing of cheap telegraphy. In the Senate Mr. Graham, of Pitts burg, was the only member with in dependence and progressive spirit sufficient to stand up for the people against the present telegraph monop olists. We trust our members ol Congress will disregard these super serviceable instructions, and if in their power give the people cheap tele graphic, as well as cheap postal faciU itiea. Judge Dean, at the late term of the Huntingdon county court, refused all applications for license, pending the decision of the jeojle ( n that question. What course will our court pursue at the approaching term? Certain journals and politicians in tbe fountry, nre gloating over what they style the fall of Vice Pres ident Colfax, and the wish being father to the thought, they assume the fact that iu tho Credit Mobilicr investigation ho has not only been proven corrupt, but a perjured vil 1 ain. Tbe facts are as follows : Oakes Ames testifies that he deposited a certain amount of money with tbe Sergeant-at-arms of the House, which he afterwards distributed among members of Congress, and he produces a check marked S. C. for twelve hundred dollars, which he al leges Colfax received. To this Col fax replies under oatb, that he nev- r vf1 the check, or the sum of money for which it was drawn. The committee cause the books of the bank where Colfax kept his money to be produced, and it is shown that be deposited on the 22d of June 968,63, of which 1200 was in cash, and at once the conclusion is jumped at, that the $1200 was the proceeds of Ames check On 6uch testimony dog could not be con? icted in a court of justice. It is not presumable that the check marked S. C. would be paid without an indorsement.andyet it is not claimed that it has the name of Mr. Colfax on it And forsooth, because that gentleman, about that time, deposited $1200 in bank notes and Ames sa vs. "I have no doubt it was the proceeds of this check" it is at once alleged that tbe fact is so, and straightway the character of an ad mitted christian gentleman, and pure statesman is destroyed. Shame upon such casuistrv ! The only evidence in the case, is the declarations of an admitted corruptionist on one hand, and a denial of the truth of his allega tion, on the other. Will an impar tial public believe Ames or Colfax? That is the onlv Question so far rais ed. Let Ames fortify brs testimony bv that of others, before it is allowed to outweigh aud destroy the charac ter of one, hitherto irreproachable in his walk and conversation. No Pennsylvania, having a true appreciation of the good name. and fair fame of the State, but must feel humiliated by the conduct of the members, presumed to reflect its dig nity and ability, in those two repre sentative bodies, the Constitutional Convention and the Legislature. The members of these two bodies bar ring a few honorable exceptions ap pear to entertain a petty dislike and jealousy of each other, which crops out on all occasions, and leads to hu miliating displays of bad taste, bad temper, and bad feelings. - Thus, in discussing the proposed reform in the legislative branch of our government, members of the conven tion have made an indiscriminate, un just and uncalled-for attack upon all past legislatures, many members of which arc occupying scats in the con vention; while from the legislative body are hurled back sneers and re crimination the Speaker of the lower House so far forgetting bis own and its dignity, as to vacate the chair, take tbe floor, and ventilate bis spleen in an ill-tempered denunciation of the Convention; while the Senate betrays pettiness and spite by joining the House in a contemptuous refusal to furnish copies of its journal to the Convention. By this conduct, both assemblages are bringing themselves into public contempt, smutching the fair fame of tbe State, degrading the positions they should occupy in pub lic estimation, and destroying their influence for good. It is natural that the Legislature should feel restive under tbe denun ciations of a body convened princi pally with the object of reforming its abuses and curtailing its powers, par ticularly when that body so far for gets itself as to assume tbe functions of legislation, and its members to in dulge in loose and unfounded state ments and sweeping criminations, but we submit, with all due deference, that former Legislatures have not been deemed immaculate, and it is not necesKary for its own fair fame that the present one should so pointedly and rudely resent imputations upon the integrity of its predecessors ; and we also suggest to members of the Convention, that they were assigned the duty of reforming and correcting abuses, which does not necessarily imply the indiscriminate denunciation of all who may have had the oppor tunity of participating in them. "Compounding tlni tho; are inclined to. By damning thnne they have no mind to" will neither blindfold the public, nor be savory in its nostrils, and a reali zation of this fact can not be too soon impressed upon the members of both those representative bodies. Reform your manners, gentlemen, all! and your discretion will be com mendable, if eventually, your labors are not fully appreciated. Apsnme a dignity, if you have it not. Speaking of the alleged attempt that will be made to repeal tbc local option law, at the present session, tbe usually well informed Harrisburg correspondent of tbe Blair county Radical writes as follows : There is no disguising tbe fact that the liquor interest are going to make a acaa-sei to repeal tne iiocai op tion" bill, and rumor-pretty well authenticated, has it that greenbacks by the armful will be on hand to per suade tbe legislature that the bill ought to be repealed. The oppo nents of the bill are movinar with great caution and hope to accomplish the repeal by money directly, know ing tuey nave nothing else under the shining heavens to offer. Tbe bill originated in tbe House and passed that body by a rote of CO to 34. Of the 60 members voting in the affirma tive, 24 are in the present House. Their names are, Smith, Elliott, Por ter, Daniels, Todges, Hancock, Strock, Lam on, Albright and Levering of Philadelphia; Sample and Ballen tine, of Allegheny; Bowman, of Arm strong; Dartt, of Bradford; Pnzer, of Chester: Lawson, of Clarion; Lawsho, of Clearfield ; Blark, of Dau phin; Shuler, of Perry; Mahon, of Franklin: Lane,, of Huntingdon; Morford. of Mercer: Brunpes, of Wyoming, and Latta, of Westmore land. Of the 34 members voting in the negative, there are in tbe present House, Josephs and Dailey, of Phila delphia ; Conrad, ol licrks ; vanagu, of Bucks; Henry, of Cambria ; Noyes, of Clinton ; Brockway, of Columbia ; Smith, of Favettc : Delacy, Quigley nil k'nnns of Luzerne: Morris, of Northampton : King, of Schuylkill; Beach, of Wayne, and Greenawalt, of Westmoreland in an, io. ui tnc it Senators who voted for the bill, 11 are still Senators, viz: Anderson, Graham, Humphreys, of Allegheny; Davis, of Philadelphia; Dclamater, of Crawford; Fitch, of Bradford; Rutan, of Beaver ; Strang, of Tioga ; Warfel. of Lancaster : Weaklev. of Cumberland, and White of Indiana. Of the 14 Senators who voted against the bill, 10 are still members, to wit: Albright, of Carbon ; Collins, of Lu zerne ; Crawford, of Juniata ; Davis, of Berks ; Dill, of Northumberland ; McSherry, of Adams ; Nagle, of Phil adelphia; Pctrikcn, of Huntingdon; Randall, of Schuylkill, and Wallace, of ClearGcld. To sum up ; There are in both Houses now 35 represen tatives out of the 76 who voted for the bill last winter, and 25 represen tatives out of tho 48 wbo voted acrainst the bill. Now. what are the chances for a repeal of the bill First Of the 100 members of the lower nouse, 61, are new men, and want to be returned ; Second Of the 60 who did vote for the bill, 21 arc returned; Third It takes at least 51, on full House, to vote a repeal Put my first and second points to gethcr, add to them the almost unan imous voice of the press, the direct vote of fully four-Cfthd of the people of both political parties (for it will be that) the prayers of the good, the tears of the wives, widows and or phans, ana tell mc; are tnere ol rep resentatives in the lower branch of our State legislature ready to vote for a repeal and face their constitu ency at home ? A vote for repeal by any member who voted for tho bill or was elected first last fall, will sink him politically and socially, deeper than plummet ever sounded. My ad vice to such a member, if there is one determined to commit the contemplat ed rape upon virtue and society, is to never return ameng bis friends and kindred ; but follow the example of Judas when he sold out our Saviour. The 15 niemiicrs who voted against the bill last year, cannot vote for re peal now, and satisfy their constitu ents, and no one of them can plead iernorancc of tbe sentiment of- his people upon the question. When Commonwealth is worked up to a fe ver heat over the hellish enormities of tbe license system, personal con sistency is but another name for in suit and will be accepted as an at tempted cover to conceal the clear fact of bribery. And what I have written of the House is applicable to tbe Senate. There 11 of tbc same Senators who voted for the bill, 10 wbo voted against it and the balance chosen, fresh from the people, since the passage of the law. With the sentiment of the people known, can either of the 10 who voted against then now plead consistency, or can any of tbe new ones successfully urge ignorance as a justification for voting for a repeal r Shall money outweigh all the interests of tbe church, the State, society, duty to the rising gen cration, common politeness to God ? I have given you the names of the men upon whom tbe responsibility of the meditated outrage, if successful, will fall with most crushing weight ; I will give you the name of one who is able and wbo will avert tbe calam ity, if all else fails John F. Hart- ran ft THE KANSAS SENAT0RSHIP. Pomeroy Chanred With At tempting to Necnre Ills Klec- tion oy uriDerr. Jka I. Iatga.Ua Elected Senator. Topeka, Kansas, January 19. Tho Legislature met in joint session at noon to vote for United States ben ator. Jjonir before tbc hour for as sembling the galleries and stairway of the hall were densely packed with people of both sexes, and standing room could not be obtained within hearing or even in sight of the pro ceedings inside the hall. John J. Ingalls, of Atchison, was nominated, as agreed upon by a caucus of sixty members, as the fittest man to oppose Pomeroy. Senator York then pro ceeded to detail three alleged inter views between himself and Pomeroy. He said these interviews were held in pursuance of a plan agreed upon by himself and other prominent op ponents of Pomeroy. The first one was on rnday night last, at which several persons were present, and dur ing which the matter of tbe Ross letter was discussed. The second one was private, and at tbe solicita tion of Pomeroy, on Monday night At this Pomeroy offered him (York) $8,000 for bis vote $2,000 cash, $5, 000 on Tuesday, and tbe remainder on Thursday. York accepted the offer and took $2,000 On Tuesday afternoon met Pomeroy again by agreement and received from him the $5,000 promised. ; York then produc ed a roll of bills from his pocket and said "Here is the $7,000 paid to me by Tomeroy, which I now desire to place in the hands of the President of this joint convention." At the conclusion of lork's speech a motion was made for a recess till five o'clock in the afternoon, to give Pomeroy an opportunity to defend himself, which was defeated by a large majority, and a motion to pro-; ceed immediately to ballot for Senator! was carried amidst great excitement Before tbe Senate roll was finished it was clearly evident that Ingalls would carry the great body of the Legislature, both of the Pomeroy and anti-Pomeroy vote. The Senate stood Ingalls 26 ; Lowe, 4 ; Harvey, 2; York, 1. The vote of the House stood Ingalls 89; Lowe, 3; Clark, 2 : Robinson, 1 ; Kingman, 1 : York, 1; Bland, 1. Ingalls was declared elected and the joint convention ad journed. Immediately after adjournment com- f laint was entered in the court against 'omeroy on a charge of bribery, and bo was arrested and gave bail in tbe sum of $5,000 to appear on Friday. This evening York was arrested on a charge of bribery and appeared for examination, when the case was dis missed and he was released. Pom eroy's friends say he denies York's charges in toto. and that he is pre paring a statement regarding the matter for publicrtion to-morrow. A large and enthusiastic meeting was held at Casta's Cpcra House to-night to celebrate the election of Ingalls. Speeches were made by . Ingalls and others and a series of appropriate res olutions passed. OCR WAUI3fTOS LETTER. Wasuinuton, Jan 30, 1873. THE SENATE TELEGRAPH BILL. Thfi most intcrestiiiff measure be fore Concrrcss at present is tho Sen ate Post Office Committee's Postal Telegraph bill. Under it if adopted telegraphing will be reduced to one cent a word for distances under 250 miles, two cents for over 250 and un der 500 miles and a cent a word when sent by night any distance under der 100 miles. The operations of this new plan will afford accom- dation to the people of nearly all towns containing 500 population which will double the number of tele graph oflices. It will be or immense advantage to tbe provincial press and throughout to the masses of tbc peo ple. Heretofore none but tbe bigh Ericed dailies of the great cities have ad the ability to publish the news of tbe day in full or unless in a few favored cases to publish it all with out the necessity of incurring greater expense than any provincial paper can afford. Thus, the masses of the people, under the present monopoly, has been cut off from the great edu cator of the people, and tbe greatest source of intellectual culture and practical information bas been re stricted and manipulated for the ben efit of the few at tbe expense Of tbe many. Shall such a tyrranny be submitted to for the future or shall the servants of the people receive pressure from the press and the people that henceforth these telegraph pnn ccs who dress in purple and fine linen and fare sumptuously every day shall give up their profitable monopoly and allow the masses of the people to share in the benefits of a discovery that not only belongs to onr country, but which is the rightful heritage of every citizen of the country. KANSAS SENATORIAL ELECTION. i lie Legislature or .Kansas on Wednesday elected to the U. S. Sen ate, John J. Infl-alls of Atchison. He was selected as the strongest man defeat Pomeroy by the opponents of that gentleman. Mr. lorkc, a State Senator, at onco announced himself as an opponent to Senator Pomeroy and stated that in pursuance of a plan agreed upon by himself and others of opponents of a re-election he held interviews with Senator Pome roy who offered him (Mr. Yorke) $8, 000 for his vote, $2,000 cash, and the balance in three dsj-8 ; that he took $2,000 and afterwards received $5, 000 more. He then produced a roll of bank bills from his pocket and said: "Here is the $7,000 paid me by Pome roy, which I now desire to place in tbe hands of the President of this joint Convention." On this statement, after refusing to take a recess for the purpose of hearing a reply from Sen ator Pomeroy, a ballot was immcdi aiely taken which in the excitement resulted in tbe election of Ingalls with not a single vote for Pomeroy. It is presumed that something more than this statement, which may have been false, was well understood by the Convention, before it would re fuse a bearing to a party charged with so great an offense, and proceed to decide against him finally. If the statement was. true as alleged, Sen ator Pomeroy has disgraced one of the highest positions of honor in the country and ought to retire into ob livion, followed bv the execration of all good men who have a pride in tbc honor of the nation. SCATHED DIGNITY. Senator J. W. Paterson, in the Credit Mobilier investigation, has prevaricated in such a gross manner that be bas lost most of the confidence which his friends had reposed in him as a man or trutn and veracity. This is said more in sorrow than in anger, for it is not only a disgrace to tbe Senator, but tbc good name of the body with which he has so long been identified is more or less affect ed by the foolish, inconsiderate and false position wbicb he ha taken. If he and others had frankly admit- ed the part they took in the purchase of credit mobilier stock, they could have been sustained in all that so far appears to have been done, but the denial in positive terms and then the proof which followed showing the denials to have been grossly untrue is sufficient to make these gentlemen bide their diminished heads for shame. Vice President Colfax also appearsjin lamentably dishonorable position before the nation he represents. Through a friend and counsel, he pro poses still to show that be bas not prevaricated, and for his own sake and that of the dignified office he fills, it is to be hoped that be will be able to lift the lood off his otherwise damag ed reputation. Your correspondent would gladly recognize any evidence exculpating bim from falsehood that can be brought forward and sus pend an adverse opinion until an op portunity ii allowed for the purpose. He is not one of those who like filthy birds after carrion delight to see cor rnption and who feast with avidity upon spoiled reputations CAPITAL ITEMS. The House Judiciary Committee will soon report a bill in favor of in creasing the salaries of leading Gov ernment officials and denying tbcm mileage.

In the Senate, petitions have been presented, asking to have the act pro hibiting the sale of intoxicating liq uors on election days so amended as to prohibit its sale for a period of twenty-four hours after the opening -a 1 - 1 of tne polls, instead oi aunng tue time that the polls are actually open, as the law now is. On Tuesday evening both branches of the Legislature met in informal sesion in the Hall of the House. A delegation in tho interests of the Cen tennial Commission from Philadelphia headed by Daniel J. Morell and Lewis Wain Smith, appeared beforo tbe ses sion. Their object was to secure an appropriation from the State of one million of dollars in aid of tbe cele bration and exhibition to be held in that city in 1876. A number of speech es were made, aud tbe appropriation urged. It appears to us that this is a large sum of money for the state to give away, .even thouirh tho object for which it is asked is highly patriotic, Inasmuch as Philadelphia expects to reap a rich harvest from those visit ing the city on that occasion, it would only be proper for her citizens to bear a large share of tbe expense. The Legislature seems to be fairly settling down to work. On Tuesday a larcre number of bills were consid ered in tbe House, aud upwards of forty were finally passed. None of these were of more than local inter est, being from the private calendar. Senator Wallace has presented a petition aarainst the introduction of the "Heathen Chinee" into the State. In tbe House, Mr. Lawsbc offered a resolution that the Scrgea-nt-at-Atius be directed to remove all bot tles from the coat-room, save those containing ink! Tho honorable gen tleman has evidently scented out some that contained something be sides ink. A t'lorg) man Ilorarwbfps Hla Bride or Fonr Months. About fifteen months ago, the Rev. J. Ilchsteiner, a native of Switzer land, came to Richmond, Indiana, and took charge of the Lutheran church in that city as pastor. He met Miss Mary Bier, with whom he seemed to fall violently in love at first sight. He began a vigorous courtship, which terminated by their marriage on the 29th of August last. All accounts agree that Mary made him a gentle and loving wife, and they were apparently contented and happy. Soon after their marriage thev made a short wedding tour to St Louis, and just here began the trouble which finally led to the most disgraceful conduct on his part, and to a final and very natural separation a fiTI . T II I on hers, v hue in l liouis, uens teiner met a former fiancee, and not having heeded the adage, "Be sure you are off with the old love before you are on with the new," the old at tachment returned, ana ne negnn to manifest a coldness and indifference towards his bride, and seem deter mined to get rid of her at any cost Shortly after Christmas, however, 6he revealed the fact to two of her lady intimates that on the night of the 27th of December he had whipped her most unmercifully with a leather whip on ber nude body. he cxhibi ted to them tbe cuts and bruises on her person. The rnmors finally reached the cars of her father, in Greenville, Ohio, and he started at once to Richmond to institute an in quiry, and if his suspicions of ill treatment on tho part of Rehsteincr were confirmed, to procure a separa tion and the return of his daughter to the paternal roof. On Sunday he went to the house and asked Ilchsteiner whether he would allow him to ask his reasons for the way in which he had conducted himself toward bis wife. Rehsteiner literally howled, and ordered him to leave the house. Mr. Bier- obeyed, and returned no more ; but he went to the mayor on Monday morning and filed a complaint against Rehsteiner for assaulting his daughter.and hadhim promptly bronjrht into the mayor's court for trial. Mrs. Rehsteiner was placed on the witness stand, and testified to the whipping as above mentioned, and showed some or the marks yet re maining 9n her person. She also stated that on last Saturday night he again attempted to whip her, and even had the impudence to try to compel her to go and get the whip for that purpose. Failing in this, howe ver, he went and got the whip him self, and gave her several blows. Rehsteincr pleaded "not guilty," but tbe evidence of his guilt was so palpable that the mayor, without hes itation, fined bim to the fall extent of the law, the fine, including costs, amounting to $ 1 29. 40. The depravity of this man was only equalled by his brazen effrontery in appearing Dcfore bis congregation, last Sunday morn ing, and preaching his "farewell ser mon." Tne Far West. Omaha, February 2.

In the House Mr. Bowman offered a resolu tion dispensing with tbe Monday night sessions. The vote on the res olution was 52 to 32 in favor of tho resolution. The Speaker ruled that it required a two-thirds vote to change a rule of the House. His decision was appeal ed from on the ground that the House had not adopted the rulrs of previous Legislatures, and that the action of other Legislatures could not bind this Legislature. Tbe debate on the appeal occupied tbc whole of tho night session. Brockway and Orvis took the ground that tho principle that other Legislatures could bind future bodies was wrong, which they were opposed to. SPEAKER ELLIOTT CONTENDED that the House of Representatives is a continuous body, and that tbe rules of previous Legislatures were binding on tbe present body until cnangeu and it required a two-thirds vote to change any of the rules atore said On the appeal the vote was 62 to 16 yeas on sustaining the decision. Mr. Brockway offered a resolution calling upon the Auditor General to furnish a detailed statement of what taxes are due for tho past eight years from any corporation operating under the laws of the Commonwealth, with full returns of the sums due from such corporations. Speaker Elliott (on the floor) moved its reference to the Committee on Ways and means. Carried by 46 to 31 Mr. Brown, of Erie To change the rate of interest to seven per cent. except when there are contracts. Senate not in session. Harrisburo, January 28.

That the last said mentioned act was not intended to repeal the act to which this is a supplement, . but the same is in full force and effect as if the act of April 3, 1872, had not been passed, and that the election provided for under said act of March, 1872, shall be held on the third Friday of March, 1873, and every third year thereafter in the several wards, boroughs and town ships in said county.

Mr. Young, of Allegheny, introduc ed a resolution to print an extra nom ber of debates of the Constitutional Convention. Speaker Elliot left the chair and made a violent speech against it He said be didn't want a copy of the de bates in his house. He was opposed to printing any or them. a m rr m a air. jiitcncii, ol lioga, louowed in a bitter, sarcastic speech against print ing any or the proceedings, lie said the wise men of that convention had sat silent; the vain had given vent to their vapid talk. The resolution to print was lost by a large vote. lieports lrom committees were in order, and every one of the thirty committees of the House poured ouj a perfect stream of bills. They will all be printed and put on the calendar for next Tuesday. Several bills appointing additional notaries public in western counties were amended so as to authorize the Governor to nsc his judgment, and appoint as many as he may think nec essary. This has been already pro posed in the fcenatc, but defeated. HOI'S E. The House was engaged all day in the private eclandar. Harrisburg, January 30. The following reports of committees were presented : An act regarding the sale of lum ber. The act repeals all local laws in the measurement of lumber. An act to collect moneys by decree of Orphans' Court. An act relating to foreign insur ance companies was reported nega tively. An act to facilitate the settlement ofe8tati)s of decedents, An act to prevent tho posting of advertisements on walls. Allowing common carriers to sell goods after a period of three months. A joint resolution relative to the amendment of the federal constitu tion in the election of President and Vice President, Ac, That portion which provides for the election of United States Senators by tbe peo ple was stricken out by tbc committee. Mr. Rutan's supplement to the lo cal option law was again postponed. Mr. Rutan called up the joint resolu tion instructing our Senators and re questing our members in Congress to vote against the general government operating tho telegraph lines of this country. . HOl'SE. Mr. Newmycr called up his bill to repeal the usury laws, and explained its purport in a few words. The moral effect of bank officers being law breakers is bad. The day for limit ing tho price for the use of money has gone by. New York and Ohio on each Bide of us are adopting luws sjmilar to this, and if we fail to keep jeven Ufc them they will divert from our State the capijal nesessary to de velop her magnificent resources. Mr. JVelsh, of Philadelphia, offer ed an amendment limiting the rate to eight per cent ... ' ' Mr. McCorraick spoke against; the amendment and in favor of the bill. I hope this amendment, said he, will be voted down. Money ia worth ten or twelve per cent, in the market, and it ought to bring just what it is worth. There is no reason, either legal or moral, why a man should not be bound to pay what he contracts to pay. I put this on tbc broad ground thut money is property, and the own er of it has a right to make out of it all he can, and I am opposed to put ting a restriction of even twelve per cent on loans. When a man borrows money and contracts to , pay a bigh rate of interest it is to be presumed he knows what it is worth to him, and should be bound by bis contract. I am opposed to reducing the restric tion under twelve per cent Mr. McMahon, of Franklin opposed tho bill. Mc Lawsko of Clearfield spoke in favor of tbe bill.. Mr. Latta, of ' Westmoreland, op posed tho bill. Tho rate of interest bad remained at six per tent, for one hundred and twenty-five years. Let there be no change. After it had been discussed for some time moved to postpone further consideration nntil this day two weeks, when it comes up as the spec ial order.' C'l'BBEXT NOTE. The entire product of tbe lend mines of Wisconsin since they were first opened is estimated at nearly $300,000,000. During the late storm seven chil dren, going home from school, lost their way and were frozen to death, between Sleepy Eye Lake and Gol den Gate, Brown county, Minnesota. Business is almost entirely suspend ed at Salt Lake City in consequence of tbe epizootic. Every stage line has been discontinued, and ail teams of mules are down with the disease. There will probably bo a suspension in transportation, and a serious loss to the mining companies will result. Louis Napoleon had nearly a mill ion dollars' worth of property in New York city, and made severa large investments there during tbe last year of his life. Intimate friends of tbe ex-Empress Eugenic say that she and her son will visit this coun try next summer. Just at the conclusion of a recent circus erformance in a North Caroli na town, tbe clown stepped forward aud informed the vast assembly that they had taken in about $G000' that day more money, he ventured to say, that any minister of the gospel in that county would receive .for a year's service. He then told them that a large portion of the -audience were church members, who would plead their poverty when asked for money to support the gospel, and se verely exposed thoir inconsistency. A few Sundays afterwards he preach ed in the same community, and made a strong appeal for missions, when a collection was taken up amounting to $433. Xev Advertisements.
