that he went some time since to the fruit store of

THE BURNING COAL Mona rem—That portion of
the Broad Mountans;called the ',Fiery Mountains,'
firm; the foot of the Anthracite coal at that point
being on fire—which has been burning for the last
fifteen years, is situated about live miles from 1111
neraville and fifteen from Schuylkill Haven. It is
now considered a very dangerons experiment to
travel over the mountain, U it is supposed that in
many places the surface is a n:ere superficial shell,
the coal having been consumed up to the surface,
and hence the least pressure thereon, it is presum
ed, might break thro:igh and let the ad venturerdown
into the fiery chasm below. At the base of the

boiling hot cornea out The surface of the.mountain
presents a desolate appearance as far as the eye
can reach. The mountain is either cracked, burn
ed or broken into numerous and fearful .lepths by
the approach of the files to the upper stratum ;
mots and trunks of the lofty trees are charred and
blackened, mingling their pyroligneous odor with
the sulphurous vapors from toe hot caves and crev
ices around. Thecalcined bones of birds, reptiles
and small quadrupeds, lie here and there, half mix
ed with mineral ashes, to fill op the blasted view,
while amidst the vast scene of desolation may be
seen a solitary wood-flower, springing from its per
petual', hot bed," and presenting in the.unconge
trial atmosphere, a mockery of bloom.

Democrat," that the elate of feeling in Homer, in

violent and malignant nature, and that Mr Plumb
was recently one of the overseers of the poor, and
has been of the most active and zealous on the

The Girard irldnk.
We find in the Philadelphia Ledger the following
remarks in report] to the proposition to re-charter
the Girard Bank The bill for extending twenty
' years the charter of this bank, passed second read
int,, in the Assembly yesterday, and it is the gene
ral expectation that it will become a law. Amo
lion in opposition to refer the bill to the Judiciary
Committee, was voted down. At present the Bank
pays into the State Treasury, $9600 in tax on divi
dends and capital. The pending proposition is to
require the Bank to pay into the Treasury, immedi
ately, $125,000, to be appropriated to the comple-
tion el the North Branch Canal. It will be remem
cered that $250,000 ol the loan appropriated to the
Canal, were taken to remove the Places on the
Portage Road. The interest on the $125,000 would
be equal to $7500 per annum, or, in twenty years
$150,000. The interest, It will be seen, is annually
$2lOO less than the tax now paid, but as it will en
able the State to continue to completion the If ork
on the Canal, without borrowing, it has been deem
ed more advantageous than the tax. The bank,w•e
understand, prefers the tax, but is willing to accept
the terms proposed. The Gira-d is favorably loca
ted for business, and to put it out of existence would
create as much inconvenience, probably, as the
winding up of any other batik in our city. As a
proof of the use made of it by the business men in
its vicini'y, we observe by its last pfiblished state
ment, It held on deposit, $1,336,961."
The endorsement of the Ledger is worthy of con
sideration: because there is no paper in the State
more radical upon the question of the currency.
We observe that our Representatiies—Messrs.
BARTON and Potomac—have favored this proposi•
lion by their votes, and we have no doubt, will be
sustained by their constituents. No special reasons
can be urged against the re-charter ol the Girard
Bank, which is as necessary and in as sound a con
dition as any in the State. The bonus required to
be paid, in lieu of the tax, would be of more advan
tage to the State, it receised now, and applied to the
completion of the North Branch Canal.
Death far California.
JosEPn T.RICHARD3, late of Montrose, died in
San Jose, California, February 23, aged 42 ye ars.
Mr. Richards was a prominent and a very able
member of the Susquehanna Bar, where he done
an extensive business, till the decline of his health
induced him to seek a more congenial clime in

DEATH or Mas. COlL—This most estimable la.
dy, consort of the illustrious Senator from Michi
gan, died on Thursday, 31st alt., attended to the
last moment by the watchful care and loving kind
ness of the goad and great husband. Mrs. Cass
was a native of Virginia, highly educated, y_el a
of unassuming womanly excellence, the centre of
attraction of a large circle of friends, and a minis•
tering angel of benevolence and charity to the poor
and afflicted.
Mae. ABIGAIL FILLMORE, the deceased wife of
the Ex-President, was a native of Cayuga county,
New York, and daughter of the late Rev. Lemuel
Powers. She was married to Mr. Fllmore in 1826,
and leaves a son and daughter; the former about
21, and the latter 19 years of age. In private life,
Mrs. F. has always been much esteemed by her
acquaintances, for her many virtues and amiable
.agreeable disposition. She was about fifty
years of age.

THE JAPAN EXPEDITION, it is rumored, has been

upon the unsocial and inflexible heathen who pre
sides over the empire of Japan. It would show the
nature of the ig amity and friendship" which are

_ A nuMber .of 'philetithropio
pally of Philadelphia, - are urging , upon theiLegis
totem the appropriation . : of money . tor the impose
of establishing a school for the education'of idiotic
oirildrem. Judge Kane delivered !eons's; in the .
House of Representatives on this subject, ilf„ which
he made known a number of interesting facts. It .
hailiflireys Warn supposed that idiots were InesPa-
~ble of etiiiitiOn;_that.nature bad deprived them of
every spark of Intellect, and that with the ',human
form they were degraded to a condition of mere
animal instinct. Experiments prove that, this is a
mistaken notion, and that education 'will elevate the
idioticebove their brutal state, and endow them
with a comparative degree of intelligence. Save
ml children were exhibited to the audience who
bad been raised from this Jamentable condition. A
few years ego, the . Legislature, moved by the dis
interested appeals of Miss Dix, establisherk within
sight of the Capitol, a State Lunatic Hospital. That
institution is now filled 'Pith patient., who before
received no better treatment than could be procured
in a county poor houseorhich was generally chains.
The people have nothing to regret in the appropri
ation of money for this laudable institution. With
like, or even stronger force, do the claims of those
worse than i-sane appeal to the Legislature. The
appropriation made by the House of Representa
tives to 830,000 The Senate with a cautious spirit
has referred the subjtct to a committee. Some ap
propriation will cer.ainly be made.
The public printing has been allotted to A. Boyd
Hamilton, at 70 1.16 per cent. below the rate fixatE
by the act of 1843. Mr Hamilton took the printing
at Washington at ruinous prices, so 'hat Congress
was compelled to iake it out of his hands. The
contract which he has just made, will in all proba
bility have a similar issue.
A bill of very great importance passed the Senate
a few (lays since, and ought to pass the other branch
of the Legislature. It increases the tax on all pri•
vats bills, so as to exclude a large portion .of that
character of legslation that now occupies the whole
time of the session. Business that the Courts have
the power to transact, acts creating, extending and
enlarging the poweri of corporations, and all other
matters, of an entirely private or local nature, is to
be deterred front an application to the Legislature,
by heavy taxation. This evil has become of such
Magnitude, that some potent remedy is imperative
ly demanded. Two-thirds ot the railroad and plank
road companies chartered, are mere fanciful projec ts
which will never be accomplished. Acts of incor
poration are now so easily procured, without the
trouble of examination into the probability of suc
cess, that every projector considers them as one
step taken in the advancement of a favorite scheme
The bill would be a salutary reform.
The Senate has passed a Resolution to adjourn
finally on the 12th of this month and the House has
passed it to second reading, and yet thy have
fnade tlcartely any progress upon the appropriation
bill. If they should agree to adjourn on that day,
the appropriation bill could not be sent to the Sen•
ate until the close of this week, giving that body
one or two days for the consideration of the most
important measure of the Session, which the HoUse
have had before them for montLs. This would be
nothing new in Legislative history. On several
occasions this important bill has been tent to the
Senate during the last hours of the session, after
they had fixed the time of final adjournment, to be
hurried through in excitement, when cool judgment
was the most demanded. I hardly think that an
adjournment will take place until the 19th.
The Resolutions submitting to a vote of the peo
ple the question of a prohibitory liquor law, was
defeated by a tie vote in the Senate, yesterday, but
several' Senators repented of their vote, and moved
a reconsideration, which was carried and the Res
olution passed to third reading to day. Tomorrow
they will pass finally. Doubtless the House will
concur, so that October next will tell whether a
majority of the people of this State aro prepared to
renounce " grog" on all occasions.
A bill incorporating the Towanda and Franklin
Railroad, has passed the Legislature.
The Governor has signed the bill Incorporating
the brie city Bank, with the power to issue notes.
Yours truly,
that t h e Vice• President elect has been sworn in
seems to be incorrect. The Evening Past, of the
2J inst., says. " We learn from the Hon. Z Pratt,
who has just returned from Havana, that he was
invited by Mr. Sharkey, a week ago last Monday,
" to go out in a few days to be present at the swear
ing in of the Vice President," showing that he had
not yet been qualified, as was reported.
Mr, Pratt also was told •that Mr. King's health
was quite desperate ; that he did not weigh over
a hundred pounds, and would not probably live to
return, even if be left, as he proposed to, on the lit
of April. His principal food was milk and homi
ny, and he was daily borne by his, men into the
sugar•house, rarely being able to walk over part of
the way."
SAMMIE!! or U. S. MINISTERS.—The general im
pression appears to be that at the late session of
Congress, the salaries of the U. S. Ministers to
many of the Courts of Europe, were increased to
$20,000. This, howeveri is erroneous. This pro
position failed through a disagreement of the two
Houses. And yet the Federal press names this
contemplated increase of salary as one of the items
of " loco-loco" extravagance.
Tun Can oe SPRING--The Court of Oyer and
Terminer, at Philadelphia, decided on Saturday,
after a careful and deliberate examination, that
Spring is entitled to a new trial, as the trial which
ended in his con viction was not atria, by a jury
regularly summoned. Spring is now undergoing a
second trial.
Tsre. Maine Liquor Law has bad its stringen.
cy increased by the Legislature of that State, and
passed by a vote or two to one in both Houses. In
Wisconsin a similar law was defeated by one ma.
jority, and in Minnesota by the same majority.
Etter The Senate of our State, has adopted a ntso
lotion and authorized the Governor and Members
of the Legislature of Maryland, and the Mayor and
City Councils of Baltimore, to visit Harrisburg as
the guests of the State.
