In the Senate to-day a long ond very tedious
debate sprung up on a supplement to the Read
ing Rail Road, having for its object empower
ing the Company to continue t)ic Lebanon Val
ley Branch to the town of Dauphin, in order to
connect with the North Pennsylvania Road.—
The bill passed the House in its present shape
—which compels the Company to pay a three
mill tax on all tonnage between this place and
Dauphin, except on coal and iron. In the Sen
ate an attempt was made to amend by making
this tax on all goods between Dauphin and
Reading, but it failed, and the bill passed as it
came from, the House. • 1
The joint resolutions passed by the Hoaso in
relation to tho tonnage tax duo to the State by
the Pennsylvania Rail Road, have boon report
ed negatively by the Committee. This does not
entirely dispose of them, ns they still may bo
re-committed or called up, but they get sueh a
backset by this that they will probably uoverbo
heard of again.
The Flour inspector- of Philadelphia—one
George M. Lauman, is “ some” on a sharp
dodge. ‘ This office is worth somewhere between
§OOOO and $B,OOO per annum, but he is not sat
isfied with this paltry pittance—his cormorant
appetite calls for more. To satisfy this craving,
he comes here with a bill which hc N wants pas
sed, compelling all the flour made or sold in j
Philadelphia, whether intended for exportation 1
or home consumption, to be inspected by him,
at the usual fees. As tho flour consumed is
double the amount exported, a calculation can
readily be made as to what amount this would
enhance Mr. Laumnn’s profits. Of course the
bill will have no' show. It would be unjust to
put this tax on the flour dealers of Philadelphia,
since, if they dispose of an article falsely brand
ed, the purchaser’s remedy lies in the law against
false pretences.
The Appropriation Bill was finished off in the
Senate on Friday evening, and taken to the
House for 'concurrence. Whilo it was under
discussion, a commendable spirit- of economy
wag. evinced by some of the members, and not
only were many of tho local charitable appro
priations stricken ou,t, but a motion t# re luce the
pay to $OOO was passed, and also an amend
ment that the State Treasurer should retain
$2OO from all the members who took the extra
last winter. The courage which prompted this
bumcombe oozed out 6y evening, and all the
sections stricken out were re-instated, beside
several new ones being added, one of which ap
propriates $lOO to the Mount Vernon Fund.—
The pay business was altered, too, so that mem
bers will receive the §7OO in spite of tho show
of economy, some of them made.
The house has had before it the bill in rela
tion to’ the common Schools. The following
amendment was offered by Mr. Smith, of
That the qualified electors of the several
counties, wards and boroughs of the Stale, shall
fit the next general election determine by ballot,
whether a majority of the citizens of the State
desire the abolition of the office of County School
Superintendent #f Common Schools 1 or not; and
that the ballots so voted shall be “ for the County
School Superintendent,” and “ against thcCoun
ty School Superintendent,” and the result of
said election shall be certified by the proper of
ficers in the manner prescribed by existing laws
relative (o the returns of State officers to the
Legislature, who may take such action in
regard to the same, as may be deemed reasona
ble and just.
This amendment ( seals the fate of the bill
should \t ever reach the Senate. A similar ob
ject was attempted |to be accomplished by Mr.
Uarria, while theappropriationto the Schools
was under consideration, by offering an amend
ment which would have enabled such coantics
as wished to get rid of the County Superinten
dent. Col. Cresswell njiade a very powerful
speech against the .amendment, and it fell by a
most decided vote. ,

The Poor House.
Poon House, j April 1859.
Messes. Editors ;-i-I notipcn communication'
in the last<isßuc.of yoiir paper, .signed “A Tax
Payer,’? makingsomqjvery erroneous statements
in regard toi fhejPoorjllonsei account. Ido not
know: whether ‘‘MrVlTax: Phyer” had any -evil
design in yu&inj; these statements. Be states
thatitcost 95J•' for each jumper
supported in the Poor House. This he thinks
is too much, as itis more than his friends pay
at the “ Big House”: in. Altoona. Wo would
agree with bjm if his:, statements were correct;
but I cannot sec where he gets the figures to
make his calculations. The whole cost of the
institution for the year 1858, was $3293 44, in
cluding our-dpor relief, directors, physicians,
and stewards salaries, drugs and medicines, at
torneys, constables, and justices fees, farm stock,
new farm implements, lumber, carpenter work,
paring, &c. By .referring to our report it will
be seen that we; supported .611 paupers, which
would make an average of 51 per month. The
actual cost of the paupers j ip the House was
$ll4l 94 which would he 43 cts. per week.—
But we will include all toe above mentioned
expenses attending the institution exclusive of
out door relief which was $2583 63 and make
the cost 97£ cts. per week. The, balance §OO7 81
was paid for the support of oat door paupers.
We also gave 1,424 riieals to wayfaring paupers
which I suppose would cost 10 cents per meal
| and amount to $142 {4O, which would reduce
j our expenses. But we have said enough at
j present, I think, to convince “ Mr. Tax Payer ’
that he was mis taken in the figures.

Effects of Whiskey Brlahing.
The following items which wc : clip from the ;
Johnstown Echo of week before last and last
week, furnishes a striking example of the per
nicious effects of indulging too freely in the \
poisoned beverages sold throughout the country :
A Ghost ix. the Mixes.-— On Monday morn- ■
ing last, as James OJHara was entering one of i
the ore mines of the Cambria Iron Company, ;
for the purpose of Agoing to werk, he alleges :
that he met in his a ghost in the shape of ’
a monster black dog, with a huge chain about '
his neck. Since that time Jimmy has been un- i
able to work—whether ffom the effects of see- 1
ing the ghost or a quantity of rifla whiskey he
bad been looking at for a few days previous. :
deponent saith not. : '
Since writing thp above we learn that two
men working in the room adjoining O’Hara’s !
wero honored with a ghostly visit yesterday, .
the apparition in this instance appearing in trie
shape of an empty car, which came rushing ■
upon them at a terrible speed, but in a moment ;
it was gone, leaving in its stead a huge colored
gent of no prepossessing appearance. The
workmen in their fright broke for the entrance |
to tbemine, leaving his sable majesty “ monarch
of nil he surveyed,” and whether they have
succeeded in ousting him we arc not prepared
to say.
Melancholy Schcide by Drowning — James
O’Ha; a, the tpan whom we noticed last week as
having been frightened in one of the- Cambria
Iron Company’s ore mines, by what he imagined,
to be a ghost in the sliapo of a large black dog,
disaj p arod fr> in Lis-jbjnrdtng house in this place,
on Friday morning last, and as he was known
to have Ic n indulging pretty freely in liquor
for several days previous, inducing an an attack
of dcleritun hemetu under which he was then
laboring, suspicions were aroused in the minds
of his friends that life had met a suicidal death,
la accordance -with'this conviction, which hc-
I came stronger every: hour, a party started in
quest of the missing man on Sup Jay morning
last, determined, impossible, to solve the mys
tery of his disappearance. ,A short distance
bejow town they were informed by one of the
watchmen on the Pennsylvania Hail road that a
man suiting the description given of O’Hara
had been seen by him, about 4 j o’clock on the
morning of his disappearance, going down the
railroad, and that he had expressed the deter
mination of drowning himself., As the Express
tiain was expected: along in a short time, the
watchman could pot leave his post to pre
vent O’Hara fifom tjic fulfilment of his sucidal
design, and after the cars had passed he was
unable to discover the unfortunate man, although
wo understand he extended Lis search a con
siderable distance down the road. In the mean
time O’Hara proceeded to the one mile dam, at
the slack water, about four miles below town,
and alter depositing a bine shirt, which the
watchman hia bond when he passed
by, upon the shore, he* deliberately made his
way down to a steep bins, bis footsteps being
noticeable in the soft clay, and walked into about
five feet of water, ifrom which his body was re
covered by the above party, some twenty yards
below the point at which he entered.
- J6gs“ Reports of the wheat crop continue fa
vorable. There af* Berne exceptions of course,
but generally: the prospects are quite encoura
ging. The Illinois papers agree that there is a
probability of more than a general average in
the State. Ini Michigan the prospects are equal
ly favorable. ; These remarks also apply to Ohio
and western New York." From Texas the ac
counts are exceedingly flattering. Wheat is in
a fine condition. jCbVn is also looking well. It
is five or six inches high, and has mostly receiv
ed its first plowing. The season in that State
is three weeks earlier than usual. The forests
have assumed a gbeu hue, and the fruit trees
arc covered jvith young fruit. In Louisiana
wheat is in good condition and promises well.

Damage By a Dasd Slide.— The loss occa
sioned by the yecent land ;slide at Troy, N. Y.,
which buried jSt. lEcferhji jCollege, is estimated

Pxbst Chapter or Vovagk to Pike’s Peak. |
-!-A Pike’s Peaker from Cincinnati writes to his
friends the following abcount of the initial chap
ter Of his voyage:—We started from Cincinnati
at six o'clock. Therejare all sorts of people on
board out boat, mostiof them bound for Pike’s
Peak. A short time after wo started out, as I
sat by the stove reading a card beaded “ Short
est route to the gold region,” I hoard a voice at
the table crying out “.This is the way, gentle
men; a man won fifty dollars off me.” With
the: rest of the crowd, I looked on, saw a
small man with spectacles on, tossing cards.—
He rattled off at a great rate, “It looks easy,
gentlemen; a man would feci sure to win, but
he would lose—l did; I’d not'advise any man
to bet,” still tossing the cards, “ yet if any man
wants to Pll take him, but he will be sure to
lose; I’d advise no, man to bet unless he has
plenty af money.” With this kind of talk he
kept on; finally, one of his chums put down a
hundred dollars, and won. The bait took, and
four or five Pike’s Peakcrs pitched in; in less
than two hours the sharpers had six hundred
dollars and four gold watches. By this time
the Captain sent them a hint that we were at
Aurora, and the four gonts left.
An Honest Confession. —Senator Toombs,
with all his errors, is a bold man, and sometimes
says what is not agreeable to his political asso
ciates. In bis late speech on the revenue ques
tion, he thus spoke of the wastefulness of the
■National Administration :— :
Your appropriations for Navy Yards have gene
to the building of houses for officers and making
of flower pots and all that kind of thing, at a
of §2,000,000; and it will be no less ns
long as you will pay it„bat will go up to $4,-
000,000, if you do not.stop it. There arc $2,-
000,000 that you have no need for at all. You
have 8000 sailors to man your navy. You have
not increased them of late years, and you now
have 8000 men iu your navy-yards to help them,

from 3000 to 8000. You have eight navy-yards.

Interesting to the Bearded. —A writer in
the Boston Vast has the following pithy commu
nication ;
I have seen it stated somewhere that there is
an intimate connection between tire nerves and
muscles of the face and eyes, arid allowing the
beard to grow strengthens the eye. it is said
that surgeons in the French army have proved,
by experiment, in Africa, that soldiers wearing
the beard are much less liable to disease of the
eye, and it is generally conceded that it is a
protection from diseases of the throat and lungs.
It is asserted that in countries where it is the
custom to wear the beard, the eye retains its
lustre and brilliancy much longer. It may be
argued that females do not suffer wore than
male? from diseases of the eyes, ic., must
be admitted they are much less exposed to the
elements. Whst did the Creator give the 1c; Is
of creation a beard for? Certainly not to sup
port barbers. There is just as much sense in
shaving the-head as the chin.
A Cube run a Uatti.esxaim; Hite. Lo.-t
year a man caught four rattlesnakes on Mi.unt
Tom, above Springfield, Massachusetts, and
these he exhibited in Hartford. Connecticut, at
the last Ctate Fair. He exhibited tiic scar of
a bite from one of the reptiles on the right hand,
which he had incautiously thrust into the cage
to convey to them their food; and he attribaten
his preservation to an immediate resort to the
use of a remedy which he kept always at hand,
aud which we lure print for the benefit of our
readers, in the country particularly ; He boiled
the bprk and leaves of the white ash-tree down
to tlie strongest tea he could make, mingling
with it during the boili Ig, one-third the qu.uui
ty oipolmh. This decoction, boiled almost to
the consistency of a syrup, he kept on band, and
when bitten he instantly applied it to the punc
ture, and also swallowed some of it—and he
told us that he had felt bat little inconvenience
from the wound, and it was then three months
after the infliction of the bite. —Medical Majz.
If the following, which we clip from an
exchange, is new, it is certainly the best joke of
the season. Joseph belongs to a very extensive
fraternity :—“ We have heard of a farmer whose
for a long time been ostensibly studying
Latin hi n popular academy. The farmer"not
being perfectly satisfied with the course and the
conduct of the young hopeful, recalled him from
school, and placing him by the side of a cart one
day, thus addressed him : ‘ Now, Joseph, here is
a fork, and there is a heap of manure and a cart ;
what do you call them in Latin ?’— 1 Forkibus,
cartibus, ct tnanuribus,’ said Joseph. ‘Well,
now,’ said the old man, ‘ if you don’t take that
foikrbus pretty quickabus, and pitch that manu
ribus into that cartibus. I’ll break your lazy
backubus.’” Joseph went to workibus forlh
A Girsv X^ick.j—The SbclbyTllJc (Indiana)
Banner says that a farmer of that place, who
had a horse of a very homely color, recently
so kb hi to to a gang of gipsies for a nKfre song.
A m days after he was offered a fine dark
brown steed, .for which he willingly paid a
round price, but was' shocked to find, after a
short lime, that he had bought back his old
sorrel, with the additloq of a thick coat of paint.
The New Cent Poisonous.— lt is stated that
several instances have occurred in different parts
of the country where children have died from
the effects of poison taken into! the system by
swallowing the new nickle cent. As this coin
is small and easily swallowed, there is groat
danger in allowing young children to have them
in their possession. The metal which composes
it has had a fatal effect, and would seem to be
Cincinnati, lately, a man named Gak
married a dumb woman. Being asked why ho
did so,, ho answered that he had liad two when
already, and they gave him no rest by reason of
their talking ceaselessly, and complaining and
scolding from morning till night. Both had
died, and now, as ho was forty years old, and
desirous of having a little peace for the remain

Natural Pkotectios to Young Deer.—An
old Cnnadnin hunter declares that the : reason
why the wild deer are not killed when; young
(as they breed once a year and are always sur
rounded by other animals which prey upon
them, as dogs, wolves, bears, panthers,; etc.,)
i* that “ no dog or other animal can tmell the
track of a doc or fawn, while the latter is too
young to take care of itself!” I,lc stated that
ho had often seen it demonstrated. He hail taken
his dogs over the ground when he liadjilst be
fore seen them pass, and they would tike no
notice of the track, and could not be induced to
follow when taken to the spot, while they: would
instantly' discover the track of any (leer not
having young ones. This is but one proof of
the adaptation of the natural laws to preserve
life when it most needs protection.
