.Mr. Walhieo's "peeeli was on tlio sub

unrcled uy llio upnoiieliin special

as folio w h :
.Sknatoii Wallace said: FdlovA
citizens "(the J-'irtt Scniitnriiil l)intrirt ;
In openini', permit mo to say Unit,
d'iriii a soinew liat exU'nded term in
tho iSliito Senate, it has heen my lor
tune n 'n in and nain to bo called
upon by iroiitlomen, proiiiinent in your
city, with tho inquiry why this mens
uro nnd that nieiiKtiro have received
notion, nnd w hy we, of the rural
districts, bnvo not stayed tho wheels
or leii'islation until the press nnd the
kmiIu of your city nro heard fiom?
A brief glunco at our ptinilton there
will answer these- queries. You elect
four pen piemen to represent you in
llio Senate; the.v come clulhed with
ollieial gurh, nnd when they unite in
Ihociiilorscinciilolatiy measure purely
local, nnd nstc its passu-iu as the dcxiro
of their constituents, what right have
I to nssiiuio tlint it is not your w ih ;
My people elect nio lo taUo enro ol
their interests, and in matters ntt'ccling
my district alone. I ahould feel
deeply njrjrricved if my right to judge
of ilieir w ishes nnd wants were ques
tioned by A l'hiladclphiti Senator.
Thus, ''putting myself in their place,"
I nequiesro in their right to represent
you. They are your agents; tho guar
diaiis of your interests, and their voices
nro potent on all questions in w hich
you nlono nre concerned Hmv vital
then is it that, in matters nfTucting the
intereHts of lliis great city, yon should
be faithfully nnd honestly represented,
and how important to all of Joirts it,
thatlhobesl man named bt.ould bo
Send to us sin h nion ai your candi
date, and wo will hoar fewer com
plaints of iho wrongs perpetrated nt
Ilaiiisburg upon yuur people and
your rights. Tho evil, if Mich (lu re
lie, is hi your home, mid hero nt the
ballot box you must apply the remedy.
Ily the fiat of Providence, tho Senaic
is to day equally divided. This con
test l ) decide its political complexion
is, in every sense, a State one. The
division of llio commonwealth into
congressional, senatorial nnd reprcsen
taltvo districts; the possihlu call lorn
convention to revise tho Stale consti
tution, nnd the mode of selecting the
representatives thereto uro the great
questions to bo disponed of in the
coining session. In tho udjtistment
of mailers of so grave moineiit, no
nnrrow partisanship t-houlj prevail,
but so fur ns it is consinlent with the
character of our institutions', every
shado of sentiment hhotild bo ivpie
scntrd, and every individual voter
made the equal of his fellow. In this
way ulono can wo approxitnato the
truo standard of represonlativo gor
erniucnt. Uy tho election of Col. Deekert to
tho Senate, the Ileniocrats will control
Hint body. Tho liepiihlicuns alreudy
hafo tho House and tho (ioveninr,
utnl a fair nppot tiounient of ihc S'.nte,
and an impartial distribution of dele
gates to the State Convention (if one
should bo called) will bo made. The
Con (lifting interests of the two parties,
in view of tho matulntory provision,;
of the constitution, will beliurmonizcd,
and the councils of reasonublo and
reasoning men in tho legislature will
prevail, llivo bolji branches of the
legisla'iuro again to tha IiYptibKcan
party, mid the fores of party drill, the
necessity fur party Ftit-ccss, nnd the
de.-ircs of ambitious men within its
ranks will outweigh tl o (aimer judg
ment of fair minded men.
W e seek but n lair bill and an lion
rst Apportionment, 'i his is the issue
in this cniiviiss. fur a partisan majoilly
will again dislrnnchi-e and outrage the
people as they were dist'tanchised and
outraged by the iniquitous measures of
ITiJ and Mi.

A Foolkh American Custom.
Xo American custom causes nioro
genuine surprise and amusement
among traveling foreigners than that
which is known as the entertainment
of two or moro with refreshment for
which volunteers to pa). It is a pure
Americanism, and all over the llepub
lic it is as common as ia Kurope it ia
unknown. There is probably no min
uto of an)- day in the year w hen two
or three hundred citizen of Chicago
uro not gitzgliug something stronger
than water at somebody else's ex
pense. The casual meeting of two
men who have exchanged a word to
gether, is a signal for both to exclaim,
"Come let' have something!" and for
both to dive down into the nearest
subterranean cavity below tho side
walk. The ono w ho spoke first, usu
ally insists upon "paying tho shot,"
tho word "shot" being a metaphorical
rcferenco lo tho deadly diameter of
iho contents usually luken into the
stomach. If two old friends meet,
tho regular thing to sny first is "I.et'a
drink old times," and tho resident
must invariably "treat" the stranger.
If a mnn be well acquainted, it is con
sidered Ibo generous and princely
, thing to seize upon all his acquain
tances as often as possible, take them
to a saloon, and give them a compli
cated stand up dunk af tho bar.
If there is anything absiirder than
this habit, we are unable lo put our
linger on it. .Men do nut always treat
one another lo car tickets beeauso
they meet on the saino seal. Wenev
er saw a man take out bis pocket
bonk on encountering an acquaintance
