Tlio recent investigations in tho
llouso of Representatives at Washing
ton havo produced sonic good results at
last. The ilov. B. P. Whlttemoro a
South Carolinian carpet bagger has
been oxpollcd from tho Houso. Wo
say expelled for that Is really tho caso
Although the llouso was foolish onough
to accept his resignation and only ad
ministered a cuosuro, but this of course
is virtual expulsion. It is reported
that ho is making preparations to run
for Congress again. Vo trust that ho
may bo refused admlttauco if his negro
constituents do olect him. Golladay of
Kentucky and Dewecso of North Car
olina havo also been convicted and
havo sent In their resignations. Sever
ttl others arc shaving in their shoes, and
will doubtless resign to savo expulsion.
Speaking of Whittemore's caso the
Philadelphia Press says. "It Is to tho
creditor tho .Republican party that It
daro purgo itself of its unworthy mem
bers. Tho Democracy never attempted
anything dT the kind."
Very true, for I ho Democratic
party have never been burdened
with "carpet baggers" a genus of
political rascal solely and entirely
the property of tho Republican party ,n
lart of whose political creed it is, to
put money Into their purse without
any very troublesome scruples of con
science as to the method.
we look witii much interest to see
whether tho House will follow up Its
good work and expel Mr. Uutler of
Tennessee who also sold an appoint
zuent In the Military Academy, but
who offers in defenso tho fact that the
money was used to defeat Andrew John
ton I We must confess our inability to
detect anything meritorious in this ap
plication of money dishonestly obtain
ed. Another member, who richly do
serves expelling confessed to having
sold an appointmcnt,but states that the
proceeds were used for educational pur
poses in his state which is good 1
If report tpealts truly there are some
mcnibeis from Pennsylvania whoso ac
tions demand what one of them would
coll "Inwestigatlon I"
If all tho Representatives who have
been concerned in any manner in this
disgraceful traffic could bo expelled
turn their scute and prevented from
Over resuming . them, then could
the country rejoice and bless the day
that ingenious carpet baggers first hit
upon this new plan of thievery.
But wo nro not sanguine enough to
belieo that such will bo tho case, for
as toon as the investigations begin to
render uny prominent members uncom
fortable, then they, dreading tho result,
will, under tho party lash, havo the
matter dropped. No ouo will be injur
ed save and except such weak and com
paratively friendless members as can
be made scape goats for the sins of the
rest without materially affecting tho
parly. The Bev. B. P. Whlttemoro did
not do a wiso thing when ho employed
Dr. B. F.Butler to defend him. That
proceeding rendered it certain that there
was "something rotten In Denmark."
Female Suffrage in Wyoming.
"Imramie City, March 1. Among
tho Jurors drawn for tho March term of
the Albany County, Wyoming, Court
were eleven ladies, Borne of them tho
wives ot tho most prominent citizens.
The excitement caused by this proceed
ing is immense."
Ah, ha I These bo tho results of suff
rage sufferings towitl Now indeed,can
our fair friends appreciate tho fact that
they of Wyoming havo fallen heir to
such Ills as heretofore only masculine
flesh was subject. How wo do pity
those unhappy creatures of tho sterner
sex, who may bo unlortunato enough
to form part of a Jury on which aro half
a dozen Impracticable but obstinato
women. How funs the adage?
"When a woman will, she will, you
may depend on't,
And when she won't, sho won't, and
thero'a an end on't."
gerlously speaking, however, this
Jury servito will doubtless havo tho ef
fect of restraining, in many localities,
the ardent desires of tho feminine world
for suffrage. As tho inconveniences
and annoyances which accompany mas
culine political privileges crop out, wo
fancy the halo which surrounds the vot
ing power will loso its roso-tint some
what, and tlio benefits ofsuffrago dis
appear before tho hard realities of Jury
service, militia duty and similar un
pleasant but necessary concomitants
which environ a voter. Don't becomo

box or trying their patience nnd their

Washington's Birth-Day.
Tho Twenty-second of Pobruary last
was tho 133th Anniversary of tho birth
day of Washington. It has been a day
very generally observed until within
tho past fow years, thoso in which tho
Pvcpublican party was sent, for our sins,
to rulo tho land and destroy historic
landmarks. Almost ovory prominent
man in tho Ilcpubllcan ranks has, by a
most peculiar and extraordinary clear
ness of vision of that romnrkablo parly,
been discovered to havo resembled tho
Father of his Country. Lincoln was
tho first model and thoy havo pepctuat
cd tho resemblance In nil his followers
of position. Wo havo no doubt that
Ben Butler is very llko Washington;
wo cannot hoo where, but then wonro
not a Republican.
If Washington had been tho virtual
Instead of tho nominal parent of this
favored land ho could not havo expect

acteristics of tho great first President,
for ho would not lio (vldo! cherry treo
et al) nor steal, uor swear, and nny Ito

but acceptablo deeds for his political
co-laborers, but Washington had traits
which all good Republicans possess.
Poor George! wo aronlmost inclined to
think thnt It would havo neon better
for him to havo lied about that cherry
treo and been thoroughly spanked and
not havo turned out President nnd
Father of his Country .Wo know that he
suffers keenly when ho looks down from
his high placo, whero Republican? nre
unknown, nnd sees such a crowd of
miserablo scitllawags nnd thieves and
blackguards, yes, even down as low ns
Republican Congressmen, claiming to
posses his attributes. It must neces
sarily hurt his feelings. If this plague
cf tho Republicans Is to rest ou tho
people for many years and no deliverer

Relaxation of costs, opinion of the
Court by
Elwell, P. J. The plaintiff having
a demand of about fifteen hundred
dollars against Conyngham township,
for goods sold and delivered upon up
wards of two hundred orders drawn by
tho Overseers of tho Poor for tho sup
port of paupers, instituted fifty-four
suits beforoajustico of tlio peace at one
lime, by summons rcturnablo on the
samo day. On tho return day,ho claim
ed in each suit, for "goods sold and de
livered" and specified tho number of
tho order on which they wcro deliver
ed nnd tho person therein named as
payco. Hoobtalned judgment In each
of tho fifty-four cases for the amount
therein claimed. Upon certioraris by
tho defendant theso Judgments wero
brought Into this court and aulrmcd
as lo iie debt, tlio defendant having
leave to eauso"lho costs to bo retaxed."
(seo opinion filed in No. 75,Dec.T ,1808)
The defendant by counsel has filed
exceptions to all tho costs except In ono
case, upon tho ground, that thoy wero
unnecessary, vexatious and oppressive.
It appears by tho cvldenco taken up
on tho rulo to retax, that theso sovcral
orders did not constitute several nnd
separate contracts, but wero accepted
under n arrangement between tho
Overseers of tho Poor nnd tho plaintiff.
When therefore, tho plaintiff deliver
ed goods ou ono of them, ho did not
thereby acquire n separate cause of ac
tion against tho defendant. His de
mand against the township was mere
ly Increased by that much. It was one
debt, nnd he could not split it up into
sums of less than one hundred dollars,ln
order to bring tho amounts within tho
jurlfdlction of a Justlco of tho peace. If
ho might do this, a tradesman can lake
his day bcok and suo In a separato suit
for each item got at ono lime; and a
store-keeper might bring a separato
suit for each charge through every page
of his day-book. To permit thIs,wouId
bo to dlsregnrd all tho objects for which
tribunals are established and mnlco jus
tlces nnd courts tho Instruments of mon
strous Injustice and oppression.
In Townnda Bank vs. Ballard 7 W. &
S. -131, it was held, that tho Court has
power to strike from a bill of costs,
every chargo for what Is not necesiary,
and especially, what appears to bo ffjr
atlous and oppressive. In that case, tho
plaintiff having 92 flvoelollar bills of
the bank, brought as many suits before
n justlco of tho peace In three batches,
obtained Judgments, Issued executions
troin the Justlco which wero returned
nulla lona, took transcripts and filed
them In tho Common Pleas nnd Issued
executions thereon. Upon n rulo to
strlko off tho costs, it was held, by tho
Supremo Court, that nil tho costs, ex
cept In ono case, should bo stricken off,
bo far us regarded tho defendant,
Tho doctrine of that caso is so exactly
applicable hero that I am relieved from
giving other reasons for my conclusions
But I will add, that if tho collection of
his debt was all theplalntlff desired, ho
could have attained that object by a
slnglo suit In tho Common Pleas, in
which tlio costs would not havo oxcecd
cd ten dollars. It is also worthy of
note, that after recovery of his Judg
ments against tho township, ho could
not issue execution, until ho hud re
moved them by transcripts into tho
Common Pleas and thcreoblaln au or
dcr of tho Court. And thus, at every
step ho would make fifty four times as
in uch cost as was actually necessary for
tho collection of his debt.
"Laws" Enid Huston, J. In tho caso
before died, "uro mado for Iho purposo
of dolngjusllcc, between parties, and
Courts aro established for tho purpose
of olTecting ttila Justice. But thero havo
been and wo fear will bo, cases In which
'a party having undoubted right, en
deavors to enforco such right In a way
opprosslvoK to tho opposite party."
Whenever such an attempt Is made It
is tho duty of tho court to seo to it that
tho unlawful purposo Is defeated nnd
tlio oppressed party rellovod from tho
burden unjustly Imposed.
This caso Is unllko that of Boylo vs.
Orant, 0 Harris 102, there tho demand
was split up and notes given in order
that suit might bo brought beforo a
justice, whllo here, all tho facts, as they
now appear before tho Court, aro op
posed to any such vlow of tho contract.
When theso Judgments wero otllrmed,
as to tho debt, thero was nothing upon
the record showing how tho dobt origi
nated, uor that tho soveral items claim
ed. In truth, formed but ono debt. As
tho caso now appears I am of opinion
that equity would havo tostralned tho
plaintiff byinunctIou from prosecuting
this multltudo of suits, aud thus havo
provented vexatious litigation. Illlllard
on Injunctions 213. Tho defendant
might havo appealed to tho Common
Pleas, where tho suits would huvo been
consolidated, and nil costs strlckon off
except in ono suit. Bank vs. Ballard.
Tho only rollof which wo can now
afford tho defendant is to strlko off aft
the costs made by oral the, instance oj th
plaintiff, in obtaining, sustaining or en
forcing theso Judgments.exccpt ono. Wo
havo no power lo compel the plaintiff
to pnycosts mado by tho defendant.
Under this ruling tho costs will bo ro
taxed as follows:
In No. 75 Dec. T. 1808 full costs allow

of tho constable nnd of the Justlco up to
tho tlmo of rendering Judgmont the

fees of tho Prothonotary on motion aud

Before proceeding further, It will be
to tho interest of tho partles,by consent
to consolidate these Judgments nnd
thus prevent to one or th; other further
unnecessary costs.

The 22d February at the Blooms
burg State Normal School I
Notwithstanding tho gloomy predic
tions of some croaking weather proph
ets a beautiful, but rather colel day,greet
ed us, as wo looked out of our windows
on this mermrablo day. We expected
much not only from tho lecturer Thorn
as K. Beecher, but also from tho ac
knowledged talents of many of the
pupils of tho Normal School, and wo
were not mistaken.
Tho afternoon exercises wero all ex
ceedingly well performed. As wo en
tered tho spacious, well built chnpel.we
wcro struck with tho tasto and order in
which the students were seated, like
the people of old in a Roman amphi
theatre, beginning with tho eldest
scholars and tho top filled with tho
primnrlans! A galaxy cf prettier.happl
er faces could nowhere bo found. The
wholo blessedness, which Washington's
birth brought for tho country, and the
Normal School for tho State, seemed lo
bo reflected in their cheerful faces. Tho
singing was excellent. Chorusses wero
sung with great precision and power,
Solo:), Duetts and Quartctts with intlnito
taste. A very good Duo was played at
tho piano by two very ablo lady per
formers. Tho compositions of tho la
dles wero well composed nnd admirably
read and Ihe declamations of tho gen
tlemen well memorized nnd well de
livered. The oration on Washington
was "forllter in ro," nnd "buavitcr in
modo I"
Sovcral gentlemen made short
speeches, namely Rev. D. J. Waller,
Messrs. Armstrong and Gundy, County
Superintendents, Thomas Chalfant
and R ov. T. K.Bcecher,complimentlng
t ho School, tho orators and essayists,
not only for their style but also for their
matter. And now we had to witness
a really touching Ecene. A committee
consisting of two Indies nnd two gentlo
men, presented Mr. Carver, with c
magnificent gold watch and gold chain
in behalf of scholars and teachers. Tho
chairman of said committee addressed
Mr. Carver ns follows:
"Prop. Carver, Dear Sir:
Upon nn occasion llko tho present
when by tho birthday of our school we
aro reminded ofourindebtedncsstoyou,
we, teachers and scholars as a whole,
could do no less than show our respect
and gratitudo to you In a manner some
what different from tho usual way. Hu
man naluro is ever desirous of a chango
and tho respect which wo over endeav
or to show towards yourself, consisting
of attention and obcdlenco to nil your
injunctions for our welfare, did not ap
pear to sauaio our ucsires to appear
thankful for all your kindnesses or at
least seemed too monotonous. There
fore upon this day In which wecomem-
orate tho birthday of him towhom as an
I list r u incut in tho hands of The Divine
Creator, wo aro indebted, to some extent,
for civil nnd religious liberty together
with Institutions of all klntls and while
upon this samo day wo commcmorato
the birthday of this Institution with
which wo aro Intimately connected by
hand and heart, wo felt It right that by
a gift of somo description wo should
show our esteem for him who bears tho
samo relation to tho Stato Normal
School of Bloomsburg as Washington
does to America. In tho presentation
of this gift wo hopo that you will re
celvo It not as if Intended as an equiv
alent for nil the many benefits which
wo havo received nt your hands, nor Jn
uny manner tending toward an equiva
lent, but only as un object whlch.belng
brought to your view, will remind you
of our thankfulness to you; wo feeling
utterly Incapable of over iu any respect
benefitting you as you have benefitted
us, nud wo also dcslroyou to know that
whllo wo present this to you tu a gift.
not as u rowurd,that it is our prayer that
you may receive that roward which is
not in tho lmndj of man to glvc,tho ro
ward of eternal life."
Prof. Carver, visibly touched, was so
moved by this entirely unexpected
surprise, that ho could scarcely answer,
thanking only In broken tones. Itov.
T. Beecher thought that somo llttlo
emotions of Ihe samo kind would bo
very beneficial to his system; but look
ing on nil theso smiling happy faces ho
felt himself more than ever convinc
ed, that gratitudo is not only one of
tho subllmfst but also one of tho most
beautifying virtues, bringing us nearer
to heaven and visibly Imprinting upon
grateful hearts nnd faces our blessed
Bavlour's word." "It Is moro blessed
to glvo, than to receive."
A splendid dinner awaited tho invit
ed guests, trustees, Clergy ,and boarders
after a very pleasant nnd soclablo chat
iu tho roomy, tastefully furnished par
lors and tho evening exercises wero the
crowning point of ono of tho most glor
ious days this youthful Normal School
ever witnessed.
Organ music, beautiful chorusses, de
lightful solos and the sparkling, well
conceived lecture of Itev. T. If. Beech
er, which enchained tho most fixed at
tention of tho well filled Hall for near
ly two hours. Subject was Education
nnd principally tho question, "How far
tho Stato should Influence, direct nud
control It?"
Everybody, scholars, toachors and
guests were pleased with tho whole
day's performances and wo do not know
whom wo shall compliment tho most,
tho scholars for their talents, skill and
order, tho teachers for tholr patlenco
nnd success, or Bloomsburg which has
tho honor to possess such n precious oil

Tho Free Vote in Illinois.
In tho Convention to amend tho Con
stltutlon of Illinois, on tho 10th Inst.,
Mr. Jlledlll, tho chairman of tho Com
mlttco on Electoral nnd Representative
Reform, mado an interesting and able
report, accompanied by a proposed arti
cle of amendment, applying tho princi
ples of tho Free Vote to nil elections for
tho legislature hereafter. By liU plan,
which Is likely to bo the ono adopted,
tho Senate of Illinois is to consist of 51,
and the House of 153 members. Tho
Senatorial term Is to bo four years, nnd
the representative term ono year; and
sessions as heretofore, nro to bo biennial.
Seuntorlal aud representative districts
aro to bo formed every ten years, each
to elect three members, and nn nddltl
onnl member In thoso years when sur
plus fractions of population nboyoa ratio,
shall, when added together, havo ac
cumulated to tho number of a ratio.
This last, featuro is borrowed from the
Constitution of Ohio. Practically three
or four Senators will bo chosen together
from each Senatorial district, aud a like
number of members from each reprc
sentativo district at all future elections
for members of tho two houses. This
general plan, so far, wo believe, is pre
cisely the samo as that recommended
by tho legislative committee of the con
ventlon, and thus nppears to meet with
general assent. This will mako a larger
number In each house than wo iu Penn
sylvania nre used to; but ns tho legls
lature meets only onco in two years,tho
plan may bo very proper, and will not
bo burdonsoino to the people. Bo this
as it may, it lays a foundation for tho
convenient application of reformed
voting In tho election of representatives,
Mr. Medill's committee, therefore,
recommend tho following concludlnf
section in tho article reported by them
"In all elections of senators or renre
sentatives each qualified voter shall be
entitled to as many votes as thero are
senators or representatives to do elected
by the same constituency, and may dis
tribute themtor enual fractions thereof)
among tho candidates, or concentrate
them upon one, at his option, nnd the
canuiuaies nigne-st in votes snail bode
clared elected."
Tho practical working of this pro
position is shown In detail In the fourth
section of tho bill now pending in our
legislature, "to define tho limits and to
organize the town of Bloomsburg," nud
for regulating elections In that town,
which will contain some four thousand
Inhabitants within. its now boundaries.
The fourtii section provides as follows:
"To tho end that the electors of
Bloomsburg may exercise their right
of suffrage freely and without undue
constraint, aud niav obtain for them.
solves complete representation in their
local Government, tho nlau of tlm Frnn
Vote shall bo lawful, and Is hereby
authorized In tho elections for officers
of said town and for all officers to bo
chosen by them exclusively. In nil
cases whero moro persons than ono are
to bo chosen in said town to tho samo
office for tho samo timo or term of ser
vice, each voter duly qualified shall bo
entitled to ns many votes as tho number
of persons to bo so chosen, and may poll
his votes ns follows, to wit."
Hero follow regulations nppllcablo to
tlio different cases whero two, threo,
four or six officers aro to bo chosen. For
tho present wo will cite only tho clauses
which rolato to tho election of three or
four 'persons, becnuso theso illustrate
tho practical working of tho plan pro
posed In tho Illinois Convention. They
aro as follows:
"When threo persons nro to he phnuon.
each voter.may glvo ono voto to each of
tnreo canumates, two votes to ono can
didate nud ono to another, ono voto and
a half to each of two, or threo votes to
"When four persons are to bo chosen.
ho may glvo ouo voto to each of four
candidates, ono vote and a third tn e.mli
of three.two votes to each of two.or four
vuira 10 one.
We omit details as to tho manner in
which ballots shall bo voted, and tho
provision for filling vacancies as foreign
to our present purpose. But it will bo
seen that tho Illinois proposition Invol
ves a great extension of freedom of choice
lo tho elector, and will enablo parties
to represent themselves fully by their
own votes. In practice a party at an
election will select but ono of the vari
ous modes of voting nbovo mentioned,
so that thoy will not all bo used nt tho
samo election. Tho number of candl
dates eclcctcd forsupportwlllboinpro
portion to thoesllmated strength of the
party, though the will of the Individual
in distributing his votes will bo uncon-
trolled. Parties will vote for a smaller
or a greater number according to elr
cumslances, and ns their interests may
eiiciate. Tho plan Is flexible, and will
so easily adapt Itself to tho relative
strength of parties in a district, that no
considerable number of tho peoplo will
loso llielr votes, orgo unrepresented.
Tho result will bo In all or most cases
that a majority will elect two repre
sentatives iu ndlstrict.aud tliemluorlty
oue; and when four repiescntativesaro
to bo chosen from adlstrlct.tho majority
will choose three nud tlio minority one;
or, If tho strength of parties bo nearly
equal, each will obtain two. Tho re
publican minority In southern Illinois
and thodemocratlc minority in northern
Illinois will each bo represented Iu tho
Stato legislature, Instead of being ells-
naiciuseu as at present.whllo tho midor.
ity In each section will retain their lull
sharo of power. In short, tlio days of
gerrymandering will bo ended. Tho
occupation of tho professional manlp-
pulutors of ballot-boxes will bo gone.
Corruption at legislative elections will
receivoa sovero, if notn deadly blow.
This Is a consummation most duvoutlv
to bo wished by every citizen who cher
ishes tho lirinciides of renrcsentntlvn
government. Mornlny Patriot.
Wegro Suffrage.
The momorlal against negro suffrage,
prosentotl by Mr. Saulsbury in tlio Son-
uto, quotes tho following interesting
oplnlonsof cmlnont statesmen of all par-
tics, Abraham Lincoln included, on tho
question of negro equality. John
Adams said :
I havo novcr read reasoning moro ab
surd, sophistry moro gross than the
suutlo labors of llcl vctlus and Rousseau
to dcmoilstrato tho natural equality of
Thomas Jefferson said :
Nothlnir Is moro certainly written In
tho book of fato than that theso people
(tho negroes) nro to bo froo, nor Is It less
certain that tho two races equally frco
cannot 11 ve under tho samo government.
Daniel Webster said:
If nnv trentlomnti from tho South
shall propose a schomo, to bo carried on
uy mis government upou a largo scnio
for tho transportation of tho colored
people to any colony or any nlaco In tho
world, I should bo qulto disposed to
Incur almost any degrco of oxponse to
accomplish that object.
Henry Clay said :
Of tho utility of a total separation of
tno two incongruous races ot our popu
lation, supposing it to bo practical, none
havo ever doubted; tho modo of accom
plishing that desirable object has nlono
(itviueu putuic opinion.
Stephen A. Douglass said :
I bcliovo this covornmont was mado
by whito men for tho benefit of white
men nnd their posterity forever; nnd I
am in favor of confining citizenship to
whllo men or European uirnt anu
descent, instead of conferring it upon
negroes, Indians, nnd other inferior
Abraliam Lincoln said:
I nm not. nnd never have been, in fa
vor of making voters or juors of negroes
nor of qualifying them to hold olllco
nor to Intermarry with whites; and I
will say further, iu addition to this,
that there Is a physical difference be
tween the whito and black races, which
I believe will forover forbid tho two
races living on terms of social and poll
tlcal equality.
Thursday, Feb. 21th. Iu tho Senate
yesterday, a resolution was offered by
Mr. Spencer looking to tho abolition
of tho military school at West Point
und tho naval school at Aunapolls.
The credentials of II. R. Revels, tho
colored Senator elect from Mississippi,
wero presented by Mr. AVllson, nml a
long debate ensued upon the question
of their regularity. Tho paper was
finally received, and a discussion then
took place upon tho reference to Com
In tho House, immediately after tho
reading of the journal, tho intelligence
of tho death of Hon. Anson Burling
game wasrecelved,nndMr.Banks mado
a brief speech In allusion to tho unex

elect from Mississippi took tho oaths of
office. The Houso then took up the caso
of Mr. Whlttemoro, charged with sell
Ing cadetships. Mr. Butler, of Massa
