That our prcsont Legislature tics
crvw tho roputfttlon of being tho most
corrupt leglslatlvobody ever assembled
in tho United Btatoa, Is proved by their
passngo or "An act to facllltato and so
euro tho construction of nn additional
railway connection botween tho waters
or tho Susquehanna and tho Great
Likes, Oinada, and tho North-Western
btatesf by extending tho credit or cor
taln corporations to tho Jers6y Shore,
Pluo Creek nnd Buffalo Hallway Com-
wan v." Tho substanco or this bill Is
that it proposes to tako from tho Sink
log Fund, nino and a half millions or
dollars In tho shapo or Penaa. B. B.Co.,
and Allegheny B. B. bonds, (which aro
pcrrectly good,) and to put In
thclr.placo tho worthless bonds or tho
nbovenatned "Jersey Shoro.Plno Creek
and Buffalo Ballway Co." which pro
poses .to construct a road through what
is now,aud always wlllbo,a wilderness.
If their bonds aro good why mako this
transfer? If they nro. not, legislators
have no business to rob tho Sinking
Fund, for tho benefit of this or any oth
er corporatlon.The present Administra
tion have already bankrupted tho
Treasury, and taken illegally ono and
a half million dollars from tho Sinking
Fundj and now the cormorants would
rob the people of a much larger amount.
To many it Is a matter of wonder that
mora public Indignation is not excited
at such n flagrant outrage. .The difficul
ty is in the Frets. Tho Morning 1'alriol
located at our political and leglslatlvo
centre first sounded tho tocsin of alarm,
but ever sinco has been strangely silent.
Considering tho war Jt threatened to
wage on rings and monopolies its sllcnco
during the present crisis shows that po
ten t arguments havo been used in that
quarter. So with tho Age. It has giv
en in its adhesion to thoring,andhcnco
forth has no claim to bo considered an
organ of tho pure Democracy.,
Many Democratic mombere will at
tempt to justify their votes on this swin
dle on tho ground that their localities
will bo boneQtcdby lt.To this we answer
that no local advantago will compen-.
sate for endorsing a swlndlo or this na
ture, and any Democrat who does it is
untrue-to his party, and Jays himself
open to tho charge or having been
Itiswlth pleasure wo record thofact that
our Senator, Hon. 0. B. Buckalew, and
our member, Hon. Oeorgo Scott, voted
against this measure, thus Justifying tho
confidenco our peoplo have placed in
them. They da not wear the collar of
the ring. However much other coun-'
ties may havo been disgraced, Colum

her representatives can neither bo
bought noi' coaxed into tho support of

0.,B, ItriOCKWAY. Esq,, Dear Sir.
.Enclosed .find, n Jotter, to. and from
Messrs, Wndsworth nnd Fltzegcrald. I
hardly.know what more to send you.
I will, however annex a brief .sketch of
ray career for about .17 years previous to
my arrost by tho military. I moved to
Now Columbus, April 1st 1817, und en
gaged in tho mercantile business. In
1803 I .was elected njustlco of tho pcaco,
in Huutington township and was re
elected again in 1833 in tho samo town
ship, which was strongly Bepubllcau,
without opposition. J.n 1830 I was
elected a member of tho, Legislature
from Luzerno county. In 18GJ, I was
elected n Justlco of tho. pcaco again.
Arrested Aug. 31st 1801 by the military
and transported, with n rush to Fort
Mlflltn whero 1 remained until tho 10th
or Dec. 18CI, during which tlino I suff
ered soveroly with thou gue and rheu
matism, which disabled mo to such an
oxtcnt that I was obliged to uso crutches
for somo time. On tho 18th of Dec. 1S(1
nn order camo to Fort Mlflllu for my
removal to Harrlsburg for trial,whcro I
arrived on tho evening or tho 10th, and
was innrched up to Canterbury Guard
,IIouso near tho Stato Capitol Hotel,
whcrol waskoptwith Daniel M'Henry
and others; Daniel M'Henry's trial clos
ed and mlno was tp come next. I was
called for on Tuesday, Dec. 27th, but
tho Commission was not ready. Dec.
5 th, was called for again; this tlmo tho
Military Commission was ready, I was
arrnlgucd before tho Star Chamber and
ono witness F. M. .Ikler examined
against mo uud N. J. Hiss was asked
one nuodt ion and my trial was over. It
lasted about ono hour. I did not call a
wltncsi. Ou Saturday an ordor camo for
my discharge nnd It appeared strango
enough to be permitted to walk the
streets of Hurrlsbuig without a guard
by my side, or n the rear. I arrived at
homo on tho 2d of January, lSGo.Abuut
tho 12th of December, 18G1, Col. East
man tho command or Fort Mifflin
sent for mo to come to ills quarters
whero or course I made my appearance,
whan ho inquired if I know whatl was
nrrosfed,ftn I'answered that I'did not;
then I asked hi 111 tho samo question,
ami received for naanswer that 1 was
arrested for resisting tho draff In Col
umbia county. I very pointedly inform
ed him I did not llvoin Columbia Coun
ty, which nppeared to surprise him very
much; lio then informed me that he had
a.lctterthat my wife had written Gov,
Curtin which ho handed mo to read,
Gov. Curtiu had forwarded my wife's
lettfcr to tho War.Department nnd tliey
had sent it to Fort Mifflin, whether to
increase tho severity of my imprison-,
mentor relax tho iron grasp of tyrranl-
cal despotism I knew not sho talked
plainly to them nt nny rato. During
my interviow with Col, Eastmnu I told
him I liad nothing to regret, that I had
never resisted tho draft or advised oth
ers to do so and if! had my life to 11 ve
over again I did not think I would act
differently from what I, had sinco tho
war commenced. I havo not got a copy
of iF. M. Ikler's evidence bofoio tho
Military Commission. I think it can
bo had oI .A., J. Ilerr, Esq., who was
my attorney before tho Military Com
mission. It differed materially from
tho two affidavits, or his,, I gavo you
taken in Fishingcreek or Benton. Soon
after my arrest in 1601, a report was in
circulation that somo or tho intensely
loyal In New Columbus wero to bo ar
rested, and in great haste they reported
to iCoi. Stewart' at Benton who very
generously Informed them that ho
would "notify them when ho wished to

gavo you gives a brief outllno of ray ar
rest and lmprlsoumont, and you nro at

carefully give It, if in my power.
