THE PENNSYLVANIA RESERVE
Wis had the pleasure of meeting with
this body of Veterans on Thursday of
last week, at Harrisburg, l'a., on tlio
occnIon of their first annual meeting.
General Crawford presided, and Gen
eral M'Caildicss delivered the oration.
It was n magnificent production, nnd
its author was frequently applauded
during Its delivery. Governor Geary,
General Uu-sel, and other prominent
men were In attendance.
Governor Curtln was re-elected Presi
dent of tlio Association, and General
M'Caudless Vice President. Tlio next
meeting Is to be at Pittsburgh l'a., May
30, 180s, of which due and public no
tlce will lie given. General Kut and
Captain Hrockwny were elected from
this county, as members of the Hoard
of Directors for the ensuing year. In
tho evening the members, about onu
hundred In number, sat down to a mag
nlflcent banquet given at the State Cap
Itol Hotel. Governor Geary was also
present, and stood ids ground manfully
as a temperance man, against tho vol
leys of champagne corks that were fljed
all around him. Tho battles were
fought over agnin, old friendships re
newed, nnd new ones formed ; nnxlims
inquiries were made for absent ones
and genuine regret expressed for thoso
who had "shuflled oil this mortal coll.'
It was an occasion neverto be forgotten
and we trust tho association will in
crease until all our surviving comrades
aro embraced within its limits.
I.MP0UTANT TO TAVERN IyEEIT.IW
Tlio late Legislature paed an act re
quiring that nil places where liquor
sold shall bo closed at twelve oYloel
everv niirht and during Sunday. The
following is a section of the act :
"Sr.c. fl. All nersons. thus licensed
chilli close or shut up their bar or place
of sale at or before the hour of twelve
everv lilirht. and not onen tho samo tin
til sunrise next day, and on Sunday
shall not open tiiem nt an, out. kcci
them shut until Aionuay iu sunrise
this is not designed to prevent tho re
ceptlon and longing oi persons travel
lug, without violation oi iaw.-
Tho" samo act prohibits tlio sale or
gift of liquor or beer to minors and ap
prentices without tho written conen
of parents, guardians or masters, hen
ing or giving liquor to hnuituai druiiK
nrds is to bo punished by forfeiture of
license. Selling or giving liquor to
husband, wifo or child, against thu re
quest of child, wife or husband, is made
punishable by all the fines and torieit
tires of tho act, and the party so selling
or giving shall in nil cases be liablo for
damages in any court of competent ju
risdlction. Tlio penalty for violation
of the act Is a fine of not more than
twenty dollars, and, In default of pay
ment, imprisonment for not more than
live days. Constables, sheriils and po
licemen are required to enforce tlio re
quirements of the act and to arrest all
persons found drunk and take them oo'
fore a magistrate, where, when sooe
enough, their testimony shall be taken
against those from whom tho liquor
was obtained. See General Laws, iSbi,
No. 70, pp. 90.

the Secretary presents a bill of Indict

Contraction of tlio currency Is now lin-
poslble, but there Is no Immediate prob
ability of a revival of trade. TliodllU-
cultv. as ho clearly bolnts out, Is be
causo of what was done as well as left
undone by Congress. Extravagant leg
islation and profuse expenditure on tho
one hand, witli a reduction of the reve
nue on tho other. Hut the chief draw
back bus been tho determination of tho
Itadicals to keep tho South unsettled
Tlio prospect for thoimmediato future
is certainly not cheering, according to
Mr. M'Culloch ; thero will bo no con
traction, and benco low prices lire put
off indefinitely ; trade is certain to he
dull, and, of course, production will bo
checked, mechanics thrown out of em
ploymont, and general distress will en
sue. Our troubles will not be over im
til the South is restored to its placo in
the Union, tho ltepiiblienn party driven
from power, and a rigid economy re
places tho extravagance which now dis
tinguishes our legislation. Aew 1 ork

with citizens. Gov Worth, together
with thu municipal auotliorities, did tho
lienors, welcoming tho President in a
hearty manner. In response to the Gov

the President reverted to tlio days when
he was a penniless boy in Haleigh, and
tho prido it gave him to bo received in
tho city of his birth which such a dem

would devote themselves to reprairiiif

loudly applauded throughout his re
marks, and at their close Secretary

Gen. Sicivi.i:s was also called upon for
a speech, and with some reluctancecom
plied- witli the demand. The monu

THE NEW SUNDAY LIQUOR
MAXXr.lt IX WHICH IT I'ASST.D Till:
Two laws passed by tlio last Legisla
ture of Pennsylvania huvo excited
much comment. These aro tho Sunday
ilquor Law, known as "An Act to en
able police ofllcersto enforce order in
licensed bouses, nnd exterminate thu
unlicensed tralllc,"and "An Act to In
corporate tho Gettysburg Asylum for
IiivnlidSoldiers,and to ralo funds there
for, and for tho securing und possessing
of tlio battle ground at Gettysburg."
A full explanation of the manner in
which they passed thu. Legislature is
An net was introduced into tho Legis
iitureon Fcbruaryl8,18(!7,to "Hegulato
tho granting of licenses to eating houses
and taverns in tlio county of Allegheny,
and to enforce order therein." Tills be
came a law.
On March l,onio person took a printed
copy of the Allegheny county bill (as
above), and, with n pair of scissors, cut
out eleven sections and pasted them on n
sheet of paper. Hut the artist evidently
became dissatisfied Willi his own work,
for ho drew ids pen through ono of tlio
sections nnd blotted it out, thus leaving
ten, which constitute thu present liquor
law. The section which was blotted out
was In theso words : "Every person
who shall be convicted of fraudulently
adulterating, for thepurposeof wile, any
substnucu intended for food, or any wine,
whisky or other spiritous liquors, nlo or
beer, with any substance Injurious to
health, or who shall sell or oiler lor sale
any such adulterated or poisonous ioou
or drink, knowing it tobo such, nml tho
samo come to tho knowledge of tho
Hoard of Excise (Police), it shall be their
duty to report such caso to the proper
magistrate, as directed in section ol
Tlio ton printed sections having been
pasted in order, Senator Hlgham, of
Pittsburg, wroto over tlio top of them
tho title of tlio newly constructed bill
viz ; "An act to cnablo police officers to
enforce order in licensed houses and to
exterminate the unlicensed traffic."
l'bis bill was then introduced into tho
Senato on March 1, by Mr. Hlgham,
and was referred to tho Committee on
Vice nnd Immorality.
On tho morning of March I I, Mr
Worthlngton, from the committee, re
ported the bill back to the Senate with
nut nny amendment.
The patched-up printed bill was then
senttothoStnto printing oIHcp, whence
it emerged in good slinpo and was put
upon tho files in front of eacli member,
On April '2 theemislderationol public
bills was made the order m the Senate,
and the bill ofMr. Hlgham came up. It
is usual with public measures togointo
committee of tho whole for purposes of
amendment. This was dispensed with
and tlio bill was passed without discus
sion (not finally) to a third reading
merely by a vied voce vote, without any
call of the yeas and nays.
On April Itli bills on third reading
were considered, and that of Mr. Hi;
bam was passed ,finuUi by a vote of 18
yeas to 10 nays.
The only Philadelphia Senator votinj.
in favor of it was George Council, ol the
Tho Philadelphia Senators who voted
against it were Hidgway and Donovan
I'lio yeas and nays were required by
Schall ( Allentown) and Hingham (Pitts
burg,) and were as follows:

On April nth the lull was sent from th
Senato into'tho House, and by the spe
cial motion of some ono(thc recordsgiv
no cluo to the person) was "laid on tlio
table," Instead of taking the iisualeoursc
and being sent to a committee.
"On April'J thollouso tookup onemn
(Ireil iinWJiJty-Mx bills for consideration
and passed orotherwisodi-poscd of the
by tlieir titles! They were all 'private
bills,' of local or individual interest, ex
cept tho liquor bill, which, under tl
rules, had no legal place among them
being a 'publio bill." Tio minute book
of tlio House, however, records it
having passed along with tho rest, nnd
tlio minute book is evidence which can
not bo gaiusuyod. it Is apparent, from
cIihu iiispeatioii of this minute book
that tlio bill, when its titlo was reached
in numerical order, M as not at llrst con
sidered, but that tlio Speaker, or dork
or Iloiiseoverlooked it (unintentionally
or wilfully,) and after tho lap-o of sonio
littlo tlnio and tho transaction of other
business, returned to It and passed It by
Asan ovidenco that "Public Hills" hud
no right to bo considered on that day, is
tlio fact that nt the samososslon another
bill (No. Ill) was objected toby a mem
ber because U was of a publio character.
Tiio Speaker recognized tho foreo of the
suggestion, but decided that thu bill In
question was a "private" one, and It was
therefore considered. Had It been "pub
lie," it would havo been tho duty of the
Speaker to havo ruled it out of order.

In conclusion, It may be given ns the
opinion of thu writer, lliat if tho Leglsla
tire violates its own rules, there Is" no
power vested in nnyothcr tribunal to in
Hiiro into tlio facts; the clerks' books ol
the two houses being tlio only legal evi
dence by which tlio passage of a billcan
bo determined; and tho entry In such
books being nrtma facie evidence that
every rule of the IIouso was complied
with ; in other words, the House must
ustain the act nnd entries of lis olllcial
agents, the clerks, whether said acts
were in conformity with tho usual rules
or In violation of tlieni.

Til i:kk aro thousands of people who
believe tlmt Mrs. Surratt was wholly in
nocent of the crime for which slio was
hung that she was not in any sense a
party to, or cognizant of tlio intention
of Hooth und Ills confederates to assas
siunto President Lincoln, linker, who
nelcd as head detective for the War De
partment during tho war, lias recently
published a statement that Jlrs. Surratt
confessed to him that she was guilty, out
that slio yielded to the plan of assas
sination only after u good deal of urging
iy Hooth. Tills statement commands
very littlo credence, from the very ob
vious consideration tlmt If any such con
fession had been made, linker would
have been summoned us a witness on
tlio trial. It should also be remembered
that Payne, who attempted to assas
sinate Mr. Seward, and who knew all
about tho conspiracy in which lie was
so prominent nn actor, declared in the
most solemn manner, Just before his ex
ecution, tlmt Mrs. Surratt know noth
ing whatever about it. linker's book
seems to bo filled witli tho most extrav
agant und absurd inventions upon near
ly every point to which it relates. t is
evidently published to make a seii'-atlon
rather than to tell the truth. Acic York
Hv the aid of tlio negro votes the
Itadicals have carried tlio City of Wash
ington by about i'VKi majority. Many
of the negroes received their ballots m
the churches on Sunday, und voted sol
idly for the Hadlcal ticket. A party
that is obliged to rely 'for success upon
negro votes must be on its last legs.
Instead of being tlio party of intelli
gence, it is being Incorporated with tlio
lowest and most degraded part of our
population. As Winter Davis said "It
votes, not intelligence they want."
it can no longer be denied tlmt tho
whole aim nnd object of thoHepublican
party is to make tlio negro the social
and political equal of tho whites. Thoso
who go with tlmt party should under-
