all the talent ami ingenuity of the honorable
chairman of.the committee. However much
the minority of the committee, or the Sena
tor from Adams, might have desired this in
vestigation, it is not to be presumed that* in
such desire, they believed it was the inten
tion of the. Senate to condemn, whether
guilty,or notj but if-the passage of the reso
lution is to be persisted in by the Senate, it
ready been passed and reported bv
a- committee, such must evidently be the
construction-put upon the proceedings, from
its very commencement, by every candid
minded man in this Commonwealth.
Having stated our views thus brief, the
minority of the committee beg leave to state
that they differ entirely with the majority of
the committee, and oner this their protest
against the passage of a resolution censuring
any member of this Senate without a just
and sufficient cause—which is the case in
the proceedings had in relation to Thomas
C. Miller, Senator from Adams county, so
far as the undersigned are able to judge of
the facts as stated before the committee, aijd
in the Senate.' They having the most un
bounded confidence in the honesty, integrity,
and his gentlemanly deportment while hav
ing the honor of an acquaintance with him,
feel assured, thatAvhcnever the occasion re-
an,.apology for_.any.. misconstructed,
saying on his part, he will be ready to give
it to the Senate,' or any of its members, at
the same time having that respect'for his
owndionor add dignity which eVery man is
required to have occupying so dignified a
Station in life.
. A gentleman,-Mr. R. who went out ip the
Erie steamer last week, from Buffalo, had
taken a berth in one of the state rooms on
ltleck,J;he_stnte;room nextto his having been:
secured By a.'gentleman and his Wife. Mr.
R.jvishing to retire early, went by mistake,
into, the inarried gentleman’s state room, ami
thinking it to be Ids own,'stowed himself a
?K«X,yery snugly in the tipper berth, and-was
in a short time sound asleep. The lady,
who had'been reading in the cabin, wishing
-to gO-to-bed,-.and not seeing her husband- at
hand, went to "her state room,, and was sur
prised to, find him (as she supposed) asleep
m his berth; Not wishing to awake him, she
undressed herself, mid-was just on the point
of getting into her berth, when the supposed
husband sprang up and exclaimed, —“who’s
there!” As may naturally be supposed, the
lady screamed and crouched in one Corner
of the small'room,"and it happened just at
that moment that the husband made-ids ap
pearance. Beiiig rather a testy gentleman,
and perhaps withal occasionally haunted,by
the “greeneyed monster,” he did not wait
for an explanation; but seizing the trespas
ser by the shirt collar, pulled him from his |
berth, and without even stopping to venture j
a remark upon his questionable situation, at- j
tempted tojhrust him upon deck. Mr. R.
on the olhcrhami, having toogreat a respect |
for decency to.greet all his fellow passen
gers sans cuio’tte, was compelled to defend j
himself against being thus summarily dispo
sed of—and while endeavoring to push him j
through the door, the married man was him
self forced upon the deck, and locked out of
his own room. The Captain and a crowd of
passengers immediately assembled—Mr. R.
threw open the window—tendered an ex
planation—it was accepted, and he permit
ted to dress and retire. . The chagrin of the
testy gentleman cannot be described.-.-He
had not only made a fool of himself before
all the passengers, but had very impolitely
exposed a stranger in the very face of his
own wife, who like a virtuous woman, sat
passive during the whole ridiculous scene. y .of Fhilad el phiawhoseserVaiitw-as

DEEPLY affecting scene. d
The New Fork" correspondent of'the U.
States Gazette tells the following affcctin.r
story of the fatal effects of an indulgence in
,the worst of aH vices—-habitual
A crowd had gathered neat 1 the gate at the
southern extremity of the Battery, and sc. -
cra j vnjccs rose at the same moment .upon
the air, crying for yengance Upon a faltered
form, that reeled into the cnclosurfc, in a
beastly state of intoxication, He was at
parently about fifty' years of age, and was
followed by a young, beautiful, and intcre.
ting girl, not out of her teens. A moment
before I saw him he hud raised bis arm. and
struck this lovely being to the earth. !■': r
this the crowd was pursuing-him, and wo d
doubtless have committed some summary
upon the inebriated wretch, had not the sc •
delicate form interposed to prevent'the c
summation of the deed.. She approael
timidly, and fondly begged the monster
go home. He swore by .the living God i
qp Would never retain. Little did he t!
iis he uttered,(he.oath, that the vengant*-

at that moment-hanging over him, and ;

waters fo bear him, with alt his.sins u ;

had- mpekedv -
He shook the- fair girl from him will
curse, and staggered to the railing. Acl
ter of boats was at some distnacc from ■
shore, and a few voices were singing om
Russell’s excellent songs. The drunk;
contrive.d to clamber on the uppermost r.
and having seated himself, called to the si.
crs to perform Something lively, or d—n
eyes, he’would coine out there and sing
himself.’?-—These .were the last.words he "t
-tere’d.' In endeavoringto change his posit;:...
his foot slipped, and he fell into the w atm ?
rise no'more. Greatexertions, were made 1
the r.ender hiih assistahce.rahd in-:
Ilian one daring fellow plunged into the £>, -. 1 ‘
but all in-vain—his body-has not vet bo
recovered. The tide was running strong 1
.the time, and we may hear of his body be.
washed upon the opposite shore in a ‘I
days. . ■
The poor .girl was almost frantic-—s
rushed to the wafer’s edge, crying, “Fatlu
dear. clear father I—For-11 eeven’s sake,- -
my father!'’ It was, indeed, her father.-
He had once enjoyed a
but liquor ruined him. He sold iiishou -:
for it, and at? last his garments. His -W-f.
had died from-want,-and his daughter h
supported him and three brothers by the i
bors of her hands. He swore lie would ne'
again enter her house, because she would -i ;
give him liquor—he cursed her, and dk..
while a,curse against himself, yet hung uj -
his lips- The daughter did not leave f :
spot before.midnight, and her cries appall- ;
the stoutest hearts around her. Tweak
dollars were raised among the spectator
but when handed to her, she exclaimed.-
“No! no! give me my father”
Poor girl, she called in vain. The fall;
was in an ithe. - presence. She wee borne fro
the place by some friends, and when T let
the spot, the lightness of heart which h
drawn me to the scene, had departed and i
felt it almost a ■ sin“to be happy amid -tu
wretchedness man makes for himself.
The attention'of farmers is called to (i. r
■ following from 1 lie Baltimore Chronicle.
The agricultural parts of the sjatc are'- ,
a-condition of great excitement in cons:,
quence of the introduction of a machine f ->
the cutting ol grain, which promises to su-. ■>
pcrscde, to n great extent, both the cradle'
and thcsidkle. , This machine consists of v
frame, not unlike that of a cart, which i -
placed upon wheels, whose:axles,- revoh..

coriimunicate a rapid ,latcral°niofion to a sc-.,
of knives which are attached to another
frame on the'right.of the principal body’-
The machine is moved, by one or more hnr-,
ses, at a swift pace, and the grain, as last;; ■ ‘
■cut, is removed by-a hand who occupies ■
seat on the left portion of the frame. Tl-v
grain, js-cutsarapidlyby-this con trivanceas-
to require the constant attendance of cigli
or nine hands to bind the -sheaves which ;'
leaves behind it. If properly - managed; i:
will cut fyoni fifteen to twenty acres of grain - - -
net*' day; and we speak, from actual observe
cion, when' we say . that the Work is-donc hi ‘ /
a more perfect and cleanly, mode than citht’
by the ci ad le or reap hook. In many sec

scarce, it ..will be ( implement of the !

that “he ; neglects the. public business!”—
Another, not less purblind, that' he
is electioneering, and at the same time vows,
that" he" has seen -but few citizens on. his ■
