The Pennsylvania House of Representatives have decided tol report a bill for an appropria tion of $&,C00,000 for the border counties to pay losses by Con federate raids during the war. Tijebe seems to be a diversity of opinion on the proposed re duction of tho- tobacco tax.

The Rockdale Messenger says that the dog tax has inside mm-h trouble .iir-JIilanv county. Jt seems that a number of tax payers have""fa5ledto pay their dog tax, and in consequence thereof some three hundred capiasas have been issued. The law is quoted as" tollows : Section 3. That if any per son shall keep a dog that has been assessed for taxes under this act. and shall tail to pay the tax ou the same on or be fore the 1st day of January next, atter said assessment is made, he or s-he shall be guilty ot a misdemeanor, and upon convic tion thereof in any court ot com pet cut jurisdiction, shall be fined not less than five dollars and costs for each dog so kept, and it is hereby made the duty ot county attorneys-to prosecute on Ins own motion all delinquent tax payers under this act. Upon. this the Connty Attor ney filed complaints against some three huu'dred delinquent dog tax payers, and the tonse qnence i9- they are having- a very lively time in Milam county, and no good feeling to wards the officials. ---- The Insane. ' The Waco Telephone has a good word to say in behalf of the insane. But a day or two ago the Bannks recorded the -fact that the sheriff of Harris county took an ipsanc person to the State Lunatic Asylum, and had to return with an incurable patient. Here in Brcnham we have fo'ur insane" persons con fined in the 'jail for the simple reason that the State is not able to tike care of them. The facilities afforded by the ordi nary county jail are entirely in adequate to the case of this un fortunate class of people. It usually happens that when a person becomes insane that their relatives are disposed to abandon them. There are now in the connty jail three insane persons, and the grand jury would do well to investigate the circumstances under which these persons are kept at the eountys expense. Hktil Texas ceases to be an exclusively agricultural country we will not have that degree of prosperity that should mark our fine farming location. This county is beyond any doubt the garden spot of Texas. We can and do raise more cotton than perhaps any other county in tho State. What we need es a di versity of crops. It is presumed on the part ot farmers that they understand their Dnsiness much better than newspaper men. Perhaps they do. Tbe news paper man has an every day ex perience with them. We, as -newspaper men, do not propose to dictate to them, bnt our ex- -perience from one yearto anoth er proves to ns that we, so fer as -our information goes to show, are right. Whenever there are manufactories cstablisiied at home we will have prosperous times not before.

The Waco Telephone has a good word to say tor the "one more unfortunate :" ' These poor creatures are every day consigned to the potters field, without so much as a tear being dropped over their graves.

Senator Toraecs' Speech. (St. Louis Republican.) Senator Voorhees' speech on tlu- silver question took a very w ide range It went far beyond the -ilver question, and took in the whole monev question, with all the phases it presents now and all that it has presented in the last ten years. It foreshad ows that expansion of the issue which we shall see take place it the popular demand for silver dollars shall be thwarted by a veto ot the bill now before the Senate. Mr. Vorhees hrimrs tip that monstrous and indefen sible act ol a Republican Con-gres-, the conversion ot the live twenty greenback bonds into- coin bonds, and denounces it in unmeasured terms. He says ot it: "In the whole financial histo ry of the civilized world no par allel can be found to thi auda cious deed ot broken faith, de liberate treachery to the people and national dishonest'. It stands out by itself, towering high above all common frauds, .and dwarfing them in compari son with its own vast propor tions. It will bear the names ot those who enacted it to distant generation v amidst the groans, curses and lamentations ot tho-e who toil on land and on sea, and more deeply engraven than any other name will be forever tonnd that of the secretary of the treas ury "as the author of what he, himclf, said constituted the two-fold crime of repudiation and extortion." Mr. Vorhees, in support of his position, quotes the language of Senator Morton in 1S69, as fol lows: '-1 combination of stock-jobbers, as destitntc of conscience as pirates, and inspired alone by greed tor money, successfully thundered at these doors and finally deceived this government into the most stupendous act of bad faith and legalized robbery ever practiced upon any people since the dawn of history." This is strong language, but it is not stronger than the-case de mands; it expresses the opintous of a distinguished Republican now dead and a distinguished living Democrat and it would not be out ot the way, perhaps, to say that it expresses tlie.opm ions of a majority of the Demo crats and Republicans of the country at this clay. Mr. Vorhees demands the re peal ot the resumption act, the abolition of the national bank system, and that legal-tcndci greenbacks be made the sole pa per currency of the country, to be issued to an amount indicated by the wants of business, and to be receivable in payment ot all debts, public and private, incbi ding interest on tbe national debt and custom duties. These are wild propositions. They em brace the policy vit tiie green back party, as it is called, and if adopted would bear us away from the safe anchorage into which we have Iweii tending for the iast three years, and forces ns to try the inflation experi ment over again. It is signifi cant, however, that these wild schemes have found a champion in the senate at last The fact is suggestive, and prophetic It shows the strong popular exas peration wbieli tho harsh meas ures of the creditor classes of the East are inciting, and it indi cates the violent and extreme retaliatory forms which this ex asperation will exhibit if the senseless provocation shall be maintained.
