TO au Honorable, the Senate and Horisrof Rtyraren
tires, pj the Commonwealth of Pennsyttantra :
The memorial of the undersigned citizens of
Sullivan County, respectfully represents, That by
the Act of Assembly, of March 15th, Anno Dorm
ni, 1847 1 that portion of Lycoming county in which
the petitionerareside, was erected into the county
of Sullivan, spatial the wishes of many of the pe
titioners. Three commissioners were apPointedto
select a proper location for the seat of Ju-tice of
tie new county, who, fixed on a point near the cen
tre of the 'County at " Laporte "on uuseuled land
owned by Mr. S. Mylert.
Many persons being dissatisfied with this loca
lion—a review_was asked of the Legislature at the
Session of 1848, and refused. At the Session of
1849 a second application was made for a review,
and by the Act of March 26, A. D. 1849, three
new Commissioners were appointed, to review,
and if thsi judged necessary to fiz on a new loca
tion. Meanwhile Mr. Mylert in pursuance of stip
ulations. made with the fist Commissioners had
proceeded to lay out roads, and make other im•
orocements for the public accommodation, and for
these roads and improvements, the Act allowed the
Commissioners, in case cl a removal, to assess
Unfortunately for the satisfactory settlement of
the whole subject by this Act of Assembly, one of
,the C o mmissioners, Mr. Jedatah Irish was related
to, and.connected with persons interested i n th e
location .• at Fairchilds'; and from his relation.
ship a tth the parties—which must have been an
' known to those that appointed him—the question
mou ld n ot receive that impartial consideration,
which the Legislature desig ned ; and without which
the public mind cannot be satisfied and set at rest.
After several meetings. two of the Commissioners,
Messrs Irish and Brodhead—in the face of a folon•
al protest in writing by delegates from six of the
seven townships composit ' , the county—made a
report; changing the Seat of Justice to Fairchilds;
and aWarding four thousand dollars damages to
lilr lent and bis assigns, while the other Com
missioner Jthige Jessup, reported against any re
moral from Laporte.
On these premises the Petitioners address them
selves to your honorable body.. The location "at
Fairchilds' being within a very shot distance of
thecouray line, is extremely inconvenient .to the
great mass of the county., and offers to, no portion
any advantages commensurate to the burdens it
*ill impose: it obliges us to pay an amount of
damages. which in addition to the ot..er necessary
ekrienses of a new county organization, will press
ruinously an the slender means of a scattered pop
ulation, •trtiozglin,, ,, with the hardships &difficulties
of forest hie ; and it obliges us to erect nor county
pinicipally.at the publie, expense which
at t6porte were to be built at private charge, with
out any burden on the county. The objections to
the location at " Pairchilds "13,te so obvious, that
we are persuaded, thky could never have been dis
regarded by disinterested Commissioners. We
feel that we have suffered great injustice and vi rong - ,
a que-Tion of great importance to our interests has
been tried by a person, who .from relationship to
tire panne., could not have sat on the same ques
i,on as a juror in ally ordinary court of law. We
could 1101 challenge the interested ‘conimi,siniter,
but we appeal from him, to you the impartial leg
. islature of the Contmonwealth" we ask you lo re-
Verse his deribioii. r • -
The diversity of views once existing among, us
en the location of our coanty, seat, has given way
limier the smart tif injustice, and to regard for the
real interest of our empty.
To the location, tnaae unfairly and unjustly at
Fairchilds, we prefer the revert of the first corn
missioners, and the old location. We therefore
re:prof - idly ask your Honorable body, to pass an
Act of Assembly reirersir af the removal of the Seat
of Justice of Sullivan cou n ty, arld confirming the
Ixation at Laporte.

Viltereas„ Jedaiah Irish, one of the Cpmmissien•
er•, appt.inted by the Act of March 26th, A. D.

of Sullivan County, is the brother-in-law of. a per
son interested in the loeation at INtirchilds! And
tinder the bias natural td his rilationshia, Conduct

a disinterested .comintssionee.
Resolved, That our County Seat question, has
not received that fair and impartial consideration,
which justice. and the rights of the people, and the
interests of the county require,
Also Resolved, that in our opintoti, jedaiah Irish
would not have been appointed a Commissioner, if
his relationship to the parties had been made known
to tbe•Legislature; since be could not have sat as a
Juror on the question in any - ordinary court of law:
And whereas, Messrs. Irish and Brodhead, two
of the said Commissioners, after the adjournment
of the Commissioners from Fairchild., on the 3d of
November to meet at Wilkes-Barre, heard, in the
absence of Judge Jessup. czparte statements, and
ailments, and finally fixed on a site for a' court
Resolved that we regard those proceedings as un
fair rid unjust. and illegal ; as erratic proceedings
always are; and that we approve of the protest
against those proceedinus, made by our delegates
to Wilkes:Barre ; and adopt that protest as our own ;
and order irto be attached to the minutes of this
Meeting. That protest was as follows: " Wilkes
" Barre, Nov. bth l849—:"o the Honorable Com
missioners, Messrs. Jessup, Brodhead and Irish.--
"We the undersigned delegates representing the
"townships of Davidson, Shrewsbury. Forki, Elk.
4 1and, Fox, and Plunkett Creek, in the County of
'Sullivan, being six of the seven townships of said
"county respectfully represent. Whereas we have
"been informed that after the adjournment of your
"Honorable body, various exparte proceedings took
"place, showing a disposition to prejudge a decisiim
"and to locate the county teat of said county on
"the turnpike in Cherry. Now we protest against
"the said exparte proceedingi, as unjust and ob.
"ject to the said location, a belt* inconvenient, and
prejudicial to the best ioteripit of the eitizene of

And whereas the location of our seat of justice

One it inconvenient to the mass of the county;
while ref:novel thither will impose on the citizens of
the county, the payment of heavy damages, and will
require the erection of 'oldie building* principally

And whereas, although many of us disapproved
of the location at Laporte, yet taking into cunsider
mon all the circumstances, toe prefeilt to the far
treater evil-of a removal to Fairchilds; and where
ts by retaining our sear of justice at LaPorte in

The following Resolutions were then offered and
Whereat the rate of taxation in Sullivan county
is oppressively high, being almost three times the
rate of our parent county Lycoming, and burden
soot, beyond the means of a population struggling
with the hardships of a new and rough county.
Therefore Resolved; That our county commis
sioners be instructed to use greater economy in
every branch of public expenditure.
Resolved. That our county Auditors be instructed
to disallow every item of expenditure not absolute
ly necessary for carrying on the public business
of the county.
And whereas, the salary paid by the ebutity com
missioners to their clerk is much more than a fair
compensation for the services r!ndered by him, and
more than the rate at which the services of a com
petent Clerk can be obtained, thus converting the
office of clerk into a sinecure.
Therefore Resolved, That the commissioners be
instructed to reduce the salary of the Clerk, the
county Auditors to disallow so much of said salary
as ereeeds a just and ;w.4er compensation, dot ez•
ceediug two dollars per day.
Resolved, That it would be an act of great injus
tice to those who opposed the removal of thr court
ty seat . to the turnpike, to compel them to contribute
to. the pay of counsel employed to advocate that
measure. The county Auditors are therefore in
structed to disallow any counsel fee in That matter.
