Mr. Rowden. of Vir- L'inin, wns present for thclirst time. Mr. npriiificr ussniled the report, chnrRinj,' tnnt the committee vrns violutinc the spirit of instructions by the house, which incunt that the resolution providing tor the selection nt a site should be reported dock in three anvs. Me repented what he hnd already said touching the dimmers of delays, faking up n New York newspniier he rend Irom an account ot the proceedmi;s ot the lee islatiire nt Albany yesterday, remarks to the effect that iill of the money lor the lainvonld be furnished by New York Oitv: that the New York representa' tives were waiting action to hear from the legislature; that Mr. I-lower and Mr Icldeii had telecruolied to net nt once and that delay meant danger nnd loss ot the lair to New York. .Mr. hprniL'er said that the committee was asked to sit here and do nothing until the New ork legislature had leisurely acted upon the proposition. When that was for mulated, the New York representatives were to go into the house and assert that New York asked no financial aid from the government and thus use theif htteen million dollar tund as Columliia to blow up her cities. lie wns surprised to see the representatives ot these other cities surrendering their prospects and acquiescing in that program. .Mr. I-lower, in reply, said that Air, Springer had been taunting the commit' tee with delay; but it might pay tu wail iiitccn nays ll me government, saveti u million dollars n day, us it would if the legislature acted favnruhlv upon the bill lie said that Mr. Howdcn had just come from a sick lied, and that Mr. Hatch, an other member of the committee, was still sick. It was not tair to the committee to expect it to rush along with so impor tant u matter until all ot the nicuilicrf were acquainted with the subject. Other nieniiKTH ot the committee should at least have the opportunity. Mr. Hill had had as a member nf the committee on foreign affairs tn study the subject In jure undertaking to report the plan to the house, and they should not lie de prived ot that right liv yielding tu the de sires ot one city, i lucagn. it was proHT and prudent that the house should de cide that there would lie n tair liclore an attempt was made tu fix the site. Other wise, alter naming t lie site, malcontents might succeed in defeating the main prop osition and there would uc nu lair. Mr. Hill replied brictlr, urging prompt action. Air. nowdcii tiiougut mat tie hud all the information necessary fur his guidance mid to the delight ot the Chi cago men, he ranged on their side ami moved as a substitute tor a reixirt ut the sub-committee the Springer resolution, which provide for a ballot in the house next Monday. Again the chairman narrow ly escaped committing himself by voting. The vote taken would hae re sulted in a tic, 3 to 3, necessitating his casting the dividing vote, lint just at this moment Mr. lleldcn, who Hnd been no sent, walked in and enst his vote against Mr. Ilowdeu s motion, and tliechuir was elieved of the necessity for voting. 'indiug themselves in the minority, the New York men then pressed fur action upon the sub-committee's report and it was adiileil, Hill Springer and How den utiug against it. The committee then adjourned subject to u cull of the chairman, which will be issued when the sub-comniittce has framril its hill. Mr. Hitt has signified an intention to introduce in the house resolutions providing for the selection ol the site by ballot, and instructing the onimiltee, which he will ask tu nave increased tu thirteen members, to report within three days.

G., ui i-niiauetpnia college of Pharmacy, Apothecary, 34 South Main St. The Old Year lias drawn to a close, and with the beginning of the New Year we wish to thank the public for their imtronuge and recognition of our efforts to do our full duty. We are fully con scious thut it is to them that we owe the unexiKcted success of the past year, in which our business has been more than doubled, and we can only regard it as a new evidence that our business maxims ate such as to cause our customers to have confidence in us and attract those who are cautious in dealing with any Pharmacist until they have become fully assured of the nature and extent of his business principles. In out dealing with the public we realize that the most scru pulous care and honesty are paramount in importance. If these are virtues in till ordinary business transactions, they become sacred duties in Pharmacy, and without them no one can be a true Phar macist. The health, maybe the lite, 01 those dialing with the Apothecary de- IkihIs upon them. He consider it our must sncred duty to shun adulterations nnd spoiled as well as interior drugs. They constitute an evil from whichPhar- macy sutlers no less than the public. The evil is not a new one, inaugurated in late years: it has existed as long as there were men whose cupidity was stronger than their sense of justice, and it will 'loubtless continue as long as there may be men with conceptions of business so vague lhat they expect to purchase gold for the money value of dross. There are no other moral principles required for transacting a Pharmaceutical business than are necessary for any other business. Unwavering integrity that remains unin fluenced by the visions of gold along the road of ipiestioimble or deceitful prac tices is the only foundation for success that is worthy the name; it is so in every pursuit, and mure particularly in Pharmacy, where as a matter of neces sity it must be combined with constant vigilance in all directions, so as to secure all possible safegunrtls. These are the principles which we have ndcavored to live up to, und to which we trust our increasing success is due. We hope our former nations will show the same kindness towatd us in the fu ture that they have in the past, knowing that no action ol ours will ever make them regret a continuance ol their fa vors.
