, Below,we.giye an extract ifrpm a letter
pf the-JlaJfrisbiifg ippriesppndent t of the
wearppleased to notice that our -popular
|Senator,Hon. L. WjHall, receives a just
and merited compliment forplacinghimself
right on itbe record in relation ,to the law
of iibel. In cases of action In “ common
law,” irdffi is required in evidence apd
decisions are based upon it. Previous? to
1856/a law existed in this State' which
made' the publication pf a truth, not
agreeable to the feelings or eommendato
ty pf the character of a man, aiibeljhence
fhc origin of tbp saying, “ the greater the
truth' tho greater the libel.” In the year
mentioned, the Legislature of the State,
acting upon a common-sense view of the
matter, repealed the, law, and allowed
publishers of newspapers, like other men,
to give the truth in. evidence, in actions
for libel. . The lfact .that lawyers and poli-
ticiaim do .uotjlikq to have the truth told
about them at till times, will account for
tbpirjpppoSiddnj as to this law.—
T t he thanks of the-press are due Senators
Turney and Hall for the stand they hate
taken ; and wo hope they may carry their
points. Here is the extract: —
A debate of the .moat interesting character
took place in thelSenate.this week upon the law
of libel. Tho law of 1856, which removed the
shackles impoaed by tly* common law’ upon
this 'freedom of tho Press, was inserted into the
Penal Code, pur “ blacks letter” lawyets,
however,.bh the Joint Judiciary Comraittoo of
the two* Uuuses, struck it out, nnd restored that
beautiful legal paradox, “ the greater the truth'
the ’greater* the libel”—a doctrine in itself a li
bel upon common sense.
.Mr. Hull, !tfao young and. talented Senator
from Blair, moved to restore the section
original reading; whereupon the ire of the legal
profession'in the Senate was jnost warmly exci
ted.' They rehashed the o)d, exploded argument
that libel’ was to lend to.a breach of thp peace;
and that truth injures one’s feelings more than
falsehood; therefore the.truth ought not to he'
suffered .to given -as a-justification of the -
publication. . They know very well that even
the blesEsed plotted “ common law” permits the
truth to be given in mitigation of damages. If
it he right that.the truth be brought before the;
' public by way of proof, 'then it should, to use
the*Words of the law which they are seeking to
strike down, operate to the acquittal Of the de

jjgf- Godey’s Lady’s Book, for April,
arrived first of all the monthlies we receive.
Godey is as regular as clock work, if not
more, because a clock will deceive occa- ;
sionally, but Godoy never fails or disap
points. This number is an interesting
one to the ladies generally, as it contains
the Spring fashions, many styles of which ‘
are given, and some of them very band-:
some. The fashions alone are worth the ■
subscription ffrice to any lady who wishes
to keep up with the fashions of the day. ■
Price $8 per annum. We will furnish it
to any of our subscribers at $2,
Change of Place. —The Democratic:
Central 1 Committee who have in charge
the arranging of the , time and place of
holding the National Convention, are now
considering the propriety of changing it
from Charlestown to Baltimore. The;
causes which have led to the proposed. 1
change is said to be the exhorbitant char
ges the hotel keepers of Charleston in
tended to put on—most of them placing,
the figures at $5 per day. The hotel:
keepers of Baltimore have pledged them-:
selves to charge only regular fare.
- Peterson’s Ladies Magazine, for April,
is on hand, and of course we. have exam
ined the engravings and reading matter,
all of which we find iully up to the mark
we had set down. The fashion plates are
numerous and beautiful, and as this is the
time when ladies uro on the lookout for
such things, we presume our copy will be’
in demand j hut the price is so low that
every lady ought to take it for herself, (of
her husband or beau for her.). Price €2
per annum.

OenU lf the joint resolution passed by both
Houses to adjourn on the 8d of April is no.tre
considered, we have but a very few .real working
days lcft,-and I am informed that there are upf
wards of four hundred bills awaiting A action|
many of .them bills of great importance to the
people. The revised Penal code has not founU
its way to the House atthe time I write, and the
Appropriation bill, which is always regarded as
most impor tant bill of a session, involving
as it. does ah expenditure' of upwards of three
I millions of-dollars, has not yet beennoted on in
either JBonse.. This bill should never be passed
without at least a week’s deliberation, and evef

a bill, which proposes relief to.thejSunbury and

for the payment of the yiterest hnd year. Such

ful'. think thes is no question about the pas
sage of the bill in the House, but if it gasses in
the Senate, it will be by a very close vote. The
fact is, the politicians are a little afraid to show
their bands, although to-day.a majority of the
Senators are in favor of the bill.

lieve there are several aspirants, (in ,the domi

the nomination. Mr. Palmer is a very able man
and {-possesses oratorical powers second to no
man who has been in the Senate lately. Not

ly well booked in Parliamentary rules, and the
practical workings of deliberative bodies. These

Harrisburg, March 20, 1860.
Dear Mac & Harry : — Having had occasion
jto sojourn in this young city for a few days, I
Imvebeen very much pleased in listening to
the interesting sessions of the two branches of
; the Legislature, some of which I became deeply
-interested in, and thereby prolonged my stay
somewhat; and now, having been kindly offered
a seat at one of the desks, by my friend, the Dr.,
I hare concluded to drop you a line, thinking
that news from the Capitol of the State might
be iiiteresting to you and the readers of your
The General Banking Law has been passed
by 'the lower House. The Military bill, after
receiving many rather singular amendments,
was finally killed outright, to the great chagrin
of a. certain. M. D., whose course, by the by,
waa the leading cauaeof the failure of. the bill.
The bill incorporating the city of Harrisburg
has passed both branches and received the signa
ture of the Governor..
Both Bouses are working very industriously
: now, holding three sessions daily, preparing for
the final adjournment on the 3d of April. There
are many bills of a local as well os some of a
general character now before the two Houses,
and" many of them warmly pressed by their
: friends.
The bill for the revision of the Penal-Code
. has occupied much of the time of the Senate for
[several days, aqd was finally got through with
, pn Saturday, and has been sent to the House for
concurrence. This is decidedly the most impor
tant bill, of a general character, passed this ses
: slon, and wus very strictly scrutinized and the
i merits of the different sections ably discussed
; by many of the Senators, a number of whom
are; attorneys, p noticed that your talented
young friend, Hon. L. W. Hull, took a deep and
andompi ohiising inteibst in the amendments and
discussions upon this bill, as, in fact, he does in
all the bills under consideration before the Sen
ate?. Many of the most important amendments
to the bill referred to were offered 'by him and.
through bis instrumentality, passed by the Sen
ate? One whole section (generally looked upon
as i very important one) 'which,, in committee,
bap been stricken out, he succeeded in having
restored again. I also noticed him to take quite
an :octive part in a bill brought up for the re
lease of the securities or a certain Dr. Ham
mond, of five thousand dollars Dr. Hammond
was a defaulter to the State to tbe tune of $20,-
OOOr-money belonging to the Slate which he
Lad actually collected—while his bail was only
$5(000. Now his bail ask to be relieved of pay
ing; that. Principally through the manifest
exertions of your enterprising, young Senator,
in opposition to the bill,- it was defeated, and
£-5,000 thereby saved to the Cbmnumwealth.—
NoiSemitor appears to adhere: more closely to
the' business of the Senate than Mr. H. He is
always in his seat and ever ready to record
his vote or express his views .on all questions
before the Senate. '

House,” ilollidnysburg, died on the 9th iust. Having been
a volunteer in the Mexican war, he was buried with mili
tary honors by tfie companies of Hollidaysburg. All who
have enjoyed his hospitality as a landlord will be sorry to
hear of bis death.
A bill has been introduced into the present legisla
ture exempting Professors of, aud teachers in
Academies and Common Schools from taxation. Our
neighbor of the Huntingdon Globe asks “ why not include
clergyman, printers, judges, etc. ?" and so ask we. Wo
hope the bill can’t be passed unfit printers ore included.

rescued from drowning in the river, ut that place, a few
days since, by a lad named Westbrook, wbo plunged in af

the water she bud coused to breathe, hu: by the timely ap
plication o f restoratives she was brought to and is now

thieving scoundrel attempted to .get into the parlor, but

iutendeut of the Penn'a Railroad, has been appointed to
the Vice Presidency of the Company, in room of Wm. B.
Foster, deceased. Enbch Lewis, Esq., at one time 2d As
sistant Superintendent of the Koud, has been appointed
General Superintendent. The change docs take effect un
til the first of April.
tlj- Van Tries' Cornet Baud, of HoUiday&burg, paid a
visit to the Scott Band, of Patterson and Mifflin, a short
time since. A series of rVsulutioDH**passed by the former
Band, after its return, higlUy compliments the members of
the latter, and the citizens of the two towns generally, for
their hospitality. A more hospitable set of people than
those who inhabit the towns mentioned arc hard to find.
t®. The Supreme Court of tins State has decided that:
•'ln the highway the right of passage belongs to the poli
tic, but the title to the soil, stones. wood ai.d grass contin
ues to the owner of the land.’’ A person has no more right
to pasture his cattle on the highway than he bos to pas
ture them in tbs fields of farmers, and is equally liable to
action for damages. Let farmers, especially those who
have suffered so severely from this unlawful practice, take
heed and protect themselves.
43~ Somebody says that bouse is ho home which holds a
grumbling father, a scalding mother, a dissipated son, a
lazy daughter, and a bad-tempered child. It may be built
of marble, surrounded by garden, park and fountains—
carpets of extravagant costliness may spread on the floor—
pictures of rarest merit may adorn its walls—its tables may
abound witb dainties the most luxurious —its every order
ing may be complete, but yet it will not bo home. To moke
it such there must be a change of inmates.
