Senators were expected by their constit
uents to pass all their local bills the day

tbe Speaker of the Senate, could not oh
ject, be proposed to do so himself in every
case, unless it was under extraordinary
circumstances and after the bill had. been
submitted for examination.

The bill incorpprating' the Loomis
Aerial Telegraph Company: was dually
passed by the Senate on Thursday, and
with the signature of the President will
become a lawi This aerial telegraph
scheme is a novel thing. The plan of Or.
Loomis, the inventor, is to telegraph from
a high peak of the Rocky Mountains to
the highest attainable peak of the Alps,
at which point a tower is. to be erected,
on the top of which a huge mast is to be
placed. An apparatus capable of collect
ing electricity is to be put upon the nppe r
end of this mast, by means of which; at
such elevation, it is claimed a strata of
the atmosphere will bo reached which is
charged with electricity. Ground con
neutions, the same as in ordinary tele
graphy, will be erected- The electrified
strata of atmosphere will, as with the or
dinary single wire and ground connection,
make a complete circuit, and it is claimed
that the slightest pulsation of electricity
at one tower will produce a similar pulsa
tion at the other. The c imp my is to
have a capital stock of two hundred
thousand dollars, with the privilege of
increasing the same to two millions if the
interest of the company shall require it.
The business and objects of the corpora
tions are stated in the bill to be to develop
and utilize the principles and powers,
and otherwise, and operate any machinery
run by electricity for any purpose.
