.Inion,g the circumstances that attracted my

ti; a!1 my official recommendations, I deem
tie. , e most important whith relate to the pub
lie health. .Facilities for the material develop
ment, and the 'accumulation of wealth, Mi
nuted at their highesi value, are of but minor
consequence when compared with the preser
vatdei of life itself. "All teat a man hath will
be given for his life:" At the time of present
ing my last annual message. small-pox was
te Irfuliv prevalent in Philadelphia and in
many 'towns and populous' districts of the
Stan.. I then called attention to the subject,
and in the strongest terms at my command,
urged the imperative necessity of adopting
su.di measures as would arrest the disease and
prevent its re-appearance. My suggestions,
however, :were utterly unheeded by the Leg
ishinire." Thu dreadful scourge extended -it
self into the first half of the past year, and, in
the ibienee of well known preventives, it would
be presumption not to expect ita annual return.
N,-nlier the extent of its ravages, sot the fatal
Character of thedisease, last year i is generally
known ,to the imblie,or, lam Condident, there
would have been such an outcry as would have
eonipelled immedite attention and relief.
Among the ut.vaecivated, the ordinary proper
time of di s.ths has been thirty-three per cent;
but the recent death-rate in Philadelphia
amounted to nearly forty-seven per cnit: This
is' f, arful to contemplate, and yet, more fearful
still -- the fatal percentage has been nearly
sixty--ix in the country at large. ' Thighs main
ly the k( eult of an indifference, s.i reckless, as'
.t., be -absolutely unaccountable. I am thor
_ ? iii ; ;,lll!,i eonvine,;(7,,that the deplorable results
nit alluded to, might have been prevented, by
' opportune, legislanen. The testimony of the
most ECienlitle schools is to the effect that vac
einatiOn, properly administered, is a sovereign
' ,intidote. The highest medical authorities un
qualifi qlly affirm, tonsil-pox to be a disgrace to
any civilized land : that there is no necessity
for, its presence, and that if every person were
properly vaccinated every seven years, the dia
ca-e might be utterly exterminated. I am as-.
roue.l of
-the c..rreetness ofi'this opinion by my
personal observations iii the army, both in
Mexico and the United States. Soon after our
cauips were pitched upon Mexican sollntbe
disease made its appearance among our troops.
_by anlorder from General Scott, the whole sir- -
iny was vaccinated and the small-pov
.was at
• once driven from our lines. The same result
'followed the . applicution of the saute remedy in
ilie army of General Sherman, during his
_. tamouS march " to the sea" and, more trecent
ly, in our very', midst we have been favored
with apt illustration equally striking and cons
elusive : Our schobls of soldiers' orphans, in
ehich, there aro upwards of thirty-five bun
,:'red children, being under the absolute con
trol of the State authorities, a regulation en*
forcing universal vaccination, could be, and
was, adopted. The result is, that not a single
case of small -pox his occurred in them.
My ~submitting these re
marks to you is not so much for the
purpose of convincing you of the
truth of a proposition which but few
attempt to dispute, as tok the im-
Mediate, enactment of re edial mea-
SUM'S. It remains, theref re, only to
consider how the object t be sought
may be most speedily an effectually
accomplished. In reply o this ques
tio,n, I i earnestly reconamend the
passage •sot providing for com
pulsory vaccination, which should
have such penalties annexed as would
insure its undoubted enfOreement.
I also recommend an enactment
establishing a State Board of Health,
whose functions shall be discharged
under the auspices of -the
tare. Such an organization would
lie indispensable to the vigorous and
1 . comprehensive execn i0n...0f a law
making vaccination compulsory, and
would- be indispensable to the vigor
ous and bomprehensive execution of
alaw making vaccination compulsory
and .would be eminently serviceable
in, enforcing
. such other sanitary Teg
, Illations as might be' deemed essen
tial to the protection of the public
against small-pox and other conta
gions diseases. The State' Board
might be constituted upon the model
of the Board of Public Charities, with
the addition of local boards for the
counties, cities, and larger towns. ,
The expense of such a system would ',
not be worth a thought, when com
pared with the value of the benefits

tion. At all events, it would be far
less than Abe cost in human lives

ckirtor. AND CAPITOL (nouns.
The apartment in 'the Capitol buil
ding, familiarly known as the "Office
of the State . Historian," has been
tastefully fitted np for the reception
and display of the battle-flags carried
by our eoldiers in the war pf the re.
hellion, in accordance with a rem).
Intim' to that effect passed by the
Legislature at its last session. •
For the purpose of irrigating and
beautifying the Capitol grounds, I
recommend - that yon authorise the
construction of at least two orna
mental fountains.
I renew my recomendation for the
purchase of a few small lots at the
eastern-corner of the grounds neces
sary to the completion of the square,
and that the iron fen o enclosing
them be completed.
noreesoa's SALARY.
As no charge of selfishness can, 'at
this juncture; be attached to me, I
'frankly remind you that , the com
pensation of the Governors entirely.
inadequate to enable him to live in a .
'style corresponding to his, position,
and the reasonable expectations of
the people of so great a Common
wealth. The truth of these asser
tions is so obvious that no argument
is required for their confirmation. -
The Constitution declares in sec
tion VI, of article 11, "The Governor
' shall, at stated times, receive for his
services a compensation, which shall
be neither increased nor diminished
during the period for which he shall
have been elected."
Should the Legislature concur with
me as to the propriety of increasing
the compensation of the Executive to
ten thousand dollars per annum,` I
recommend that it be done prior ''to.
the twentieth of January; as on that
day the period for which my successor
has been elected will begin.
It, has heretofore been my sad duty
to chronicle the departure of distin
guished-citizens, from spheres of use
fulness to that realm of eternal
silence, from which no traveler re
turns. Among them may be
enumerated three ex-Governors ; and
now lam called upon to announce
the decease of another Who has Oc
cupied the Executive chair,
William F. Johnston was born
November 29, 1808, at Greensburg,
Westmoreland county, and died at
Pittsburg, October 25, 1872, in the
sixty-fourth year of his age.
He waa admitted - to the bar in
1829, and was subsequently a member
of the House of Representatives, and
of the . Senate. As speaker of the
latter, he became acting Governor
upon the resignation of Francis iR.
Shunk. He was afterwards nominat
ed by the Whigs, and elected- to the
Chief Magistracy. He filled the
office with honor and marked ability.
After the expiration of his term he
devoted his time to the construction
and. management of railroads and the
development of the resources of the
western portion of the State.. He
was endowned with strong natural
abilities, was genial in manners and
faithful in friendship. His services
to the Commonwealth will not soon
be forgotten. I trust the Legislature
will do justice to his memory by' ap- .
propriately noticing his death.
It is with profound sorrow, also,
that I announce to you, officially, the
death of Major • General George
Gordon Meade. He died in Philadel
phia, November 6, 1872, in The fifty
'sixth year of his age.
It is impossible, within the brief
space allowed, to - give an extended
notice of the services of one so emin
ently distinguished. He was a
graduate of. the Military Academy at
West Point ; and served with dis
tinction in the Seminole and Mexican
wars, and as a Topographical Engi
neer in time of peace. At the com
mencement of the recent Civil war,
his services were tendered to and
accepted by the Government. ,From
the rank of Brigadier General he rose
through the grades of Division! and
Corps Commander, and-was on the
twenty-eighth day of June, 1863,with
out solicitation, , appointed, by
President Lincoln, Commander in
Chief of the Army of the Potomac ;
and although he leaves behind him an
undying record of his brilliant and
heroic deeds wherever he was called
into action, his name will be, par
ticularly and forever, associated with
the glory of the great turning battle
of the war—fought at Gettyaburion
the first second and third days of
July, 1863.
General Meade remained in the
regular army until the time of his
death. - He was an accomplished
gentleman, possessing:a highly culti
vated intellect, sound judgment, and
great integrity of character. But it
is to his distinguished services upon
the soil of Pennsylvania,' which has
so intimately identified his memory
with the defence of the nation, in the
hour of its extremest peril, that I in
voke your special attention. Penn
sylvania cannot, will not be ungrateful
for such services. She will desire,
with appropriate honors, to perpetu
ate the fame of her departed chief
tain. I recommend an appropriation
for the erection of a monument to
his memory upon the battle-field of
Gettysburg; and such other legisla
tion as: will be alike suitable to the
occasion and honorable to the Com
No department of the State gov
ernment has imposed upon it such
difficult and embarrassing duties, or
stub weighty and disagreeable re
sponsibilities, as the pardoning pow
er devolves upon the Executive.
That .a few pardons may have been
unworthily granted, through the mis-'
representations of relatives, neigh
bors, or ether interested Parties, or
even by affidavits afterwards discov
ered to have been designedly false,
may be frankly conceded; and that
some who, perhaps, were more de
serving, have been refused, from
want of proper representations of
facts, may be equally true • still, I
feel assured that I have f aithfully
performed my duty in sucaa eases,
and have exercised the prerogative
pray when the facts and circumstan
ces seemed to imperatively demand
the interposition of Executive clem
ency. In this, I have endeavored to
adopt and • enforce the views enter the framers of our Consti
tution, who never contemplated an
indiscriminate use of the pardoning
power,, but designed it for the cor
rection of errors and oppressions;

The subject of the improvernent of
the Ohio River and its • navigable
tributaries has long engaged the at
tention of leading business men 'of
our own and other States; and i they
have several times solicited Congres
sional action in its behalf. Organiz
ed effort was commenced during he
present year. A convention met in
Cincinnati on the twentieth of last
February, in which a comparison of
views led to the adoption of a reso
lution requesting the Governor of
the States of Pennsylvania, West
Virginia, Indiana, Illinois„ Ohio, Ken
tucky and Tennessee, to appoint
each a committee of five members,
who should act as a commission to
take charge of,- and promote by all
legitimate means the desired improve
ment. I respoilded tl the request,
and appointed as et,mmissioners for
Pennsylvania, Jamey K. Moorhead,
Thomas J. Powers, George H. Thurs!
ton, Joseph Walton and Edward
Blanchard. The Governors of the
other States made similar appoint
nients, and the commission met, at
Cincinnati on the eighteenth of Sep
tember.. It continued in session two
days, and its proceedtngs indicate
that its members wire actuated by
earnestness of spirit, and by just,
comprehensive and statesmanlike
The commission from its own ixidy
appointed committees on statistics,
legislation, water supply and availa
ble reservoirs, plans and manner of
improvement, and an executiVe com
mittee, with power to act in the in!.
tercels of its regular sessions.. Reso
lutions were adGpted asking the Gov
ernors of the several States repre
sented, to present • the subject upon
which the commission had been cre
ated in their forthcoming messages
to their respective Legislatures—to
advise them to instruct their Sena
tors and Representatives in Congress
to favor a liberal policy toward an
interest of such magnitude, and to
recommend them to make an appro
priation sufficient to pay the expenses
of the commission.
From a memorial prepared and
submitted to the commission by Mr.
Thurston, it is manifest that the pro
ject is one of the very highest im
portance to - the States immediately
concerned, and indinictly of great
interest to the %%hole Country. The
claims of this subject to your prompt
and favorable consideration, and that
of Congress will hardly be question
ed, when it is remembered that it is
presented by gentlemen who repre
sent one-half of the population of
the country; that the people, who
would be directly or indirectly bene
filed by the contemplated improve
ment, possess one-half of its cultiva
ted lands, raise sixty per cent. of its
agricultural products, breed sixty per
cent. of live stock, own fifty per cent.
of its capital invested in farming im
plements and machinery, and have,
heretofore, paid thirty five per cent.
of its internal taxation, and contrib
uted a corresponding share toward
the payment of the National debt.
The President of the United States,
in his late message, invites the atten
tion of Congress t o this and similar
enterprises, as being of great mo
ment to the varied producing inter
ests and the internal commerce of the
country in time of peace, " and of
inestimable value in case of a foreign
war." In the scheme for the im
provement of the Ohio river and its
navigable tributaries, Pennsylvania
has an immediate and deep concern.
The subject, as presented by Mr.
Thurston, has awakened in my own
mind an unreserved and ardent sym
pathy, and I refer you with pleasure
to his very comprehensive and able
report, and most cordially recom=
mend that the instructions requested,
and an appropriation to meet the ne
cessary expenses of 4onr commission
era, be given. I am informed that
the amount required by the commis
sioners of each State will not exceed
three thousand dollars. It • need
scarcely be added that the character
of the gentlemen composing the com
mission entitles them to your perfect
confidence, and gives assurance that
the appropriation would be judicious
ly and honestly expended.

To. the exclusion of our usual va

readers the last annual message of
Governor GEARY. Although the doc
ument is somewhat lengthy it will
well repay & perusal by all who de
sire to post themselves in mud to
State affairs. _
Governor GZAI , IY has met with
some opposition, and been the sub

Gubernatorial chair, tut we believe
he has discharged the duties of his
onerous position with integrity and
marked ability. In history his ad

that have preceded it.
soy: Prrza Hzumc's agent at Can
ton, evidently feels bad because some
of the people of this county take in
terest enough in political affairs to
visit Harrisburg occasionally.. He
fears that some of those who recent
ly visited the State Capitol, ;may
exert a little influence in thwarting
the plena of the, if not ; great, un
scrupulous PRTER, in his efforts ..o
secure the formation of a new coun
ty with the capitol at Minnequa. It
is not surprising _ that some men
should desire the success of this
iniquitous scheme, because it would
make new :Aces, ' and some of the
learnedlmembers of the bar of Can
ton,' might be placed upon the bench.
But our legal friend may spurs him
self all trouble. in that direction, as
our Senator and Members are
abundantly able to meet and defeat
all of 3Lc. HERDIC 'S plans without the
interference of " leading citizens."
They know that nineteen-twentieths
of the people of this county are op
posed t division. and they will nev
er permit a bill erecting a new coun

is the friendly notice of our disap

No report of their doings is received.
Simon Cameron was re-nominated
for the United States Senate in cau
cus of Republican members. We
notice that W. T. Davies and S. W.
Alvord, of Towanda, G. B. Davison,
W. H. Carnochan and J. M. Smith,
of Troy, and E. W. Colwell of Can
ton, attended 'at the organization of
the House. - This it shonld be.
Leading citizens of the county should
more largely attend on such occa
sions. The legislature is sufficiently
corrupt to need watching,. and is
commendable indeed for men to sac
rifice time, convenience and money
ire going to Harrisburg - , at the organ
ization of the legislature, for under
the eye of the people better selections
will be made for the committees and
officers. A' grateful people should
remember such disinterestedness.
ae- It has become quite common
in these days for the press and a cer
tain class of politicians, to make
wholesale charges of corruption and
dishonesty against the Legislature,
but they never designate any partic
ular member. We protest that this
custom of slandering all the mem
bers, because there may be a- few
corrupt then among them, is not only
unfair, but is an injury to - the
honest men in the body • and an in
sult to their constituents. Let the
members of the present Legislature
be closely watched, and those who
prove unfaithful in the' dischsrge of
their duties, be held up to public
scorn, while those who honestly rep
resent their constituents and guard
the interests of the State, may have
credit. We believe there are com
paratively but few . " roosters" in
Harrisburg this winter, and if they
undertake to " ply their vocation,"
they should be exposed and left at
I home next winter. -
•fIR. It seems to be the opinion in
well informed circles, says the Wash-.
ington Evening Star, that there will
be no change in the Cabinet, with
the exception of Secretary Bourwm,
who will, no doubt, be elected sena
tor from Mns , Qnehtis.etts, to succeed
Mr. Wilsox, and resign his position
'as Secretary of the Treasury to ac
cept a seat in the Senate. - The Sias•
sachusetts Legislature met last week

tion of Mr. Wu wa's successor will be
taken until after the second Wednes
day in February, when the electorial
vote will be counted by the House of

resignation as Senator be tendered.
Hence there is 40 probability of Mr.

The re-nomination of Gen. Coma
os for the 11. S. Senate, by the Re
publican cations was anticipated
from the day of the October election.
Indeed, the party demanded his re
turn, and our - reprelentatives acted
wisely in presenting him without op
position. No dozen men in the State
contributed so largely to the glorious
result of the late campaign as Gen.
CAME/lON, and it is creditable to hia
party that his labors have been ap;
predated by them. His devotion to
the interests of Pennsylvania in the
Senate, has on him hosts of friends
in the opposite party, who rejoice to
know that he will give six years
more of his vigorous aid in the same

in old times, of General.- Grant's
throwing to the winds all forms and
ceremonies, driiing his mill horses
without an attendant ? He calls and
visits where, when and 'on whom he
pleases, walks down the avenue, if he
gets tired takes a street car, stops at
the shops if he has an errand to do,
or stands in the door of a bank and
takes a view of the crowd passinr , ° —

this is very dreadful to the old

upon it are numerous and severe.
The President goes to the capitol
and talks famil'arly with Senators and
members about public affairs. This
too is the subject of animadversion
by his enemies. His interest in leg
islation is called by them a desire to
push pet schemes, and the opposition
to go into conversations over the ,
tendency of the Executive to usurpa

the regularity and singular indepen

in these particulars. There is a
strong element of common sense too

culture in California has met' with
encouraging success. It was at
tempted by a few farmers in Mercer

the Southern States, and is quoted
at theysame prices. -It is claimed
that the crop can be grown in Cali

$l.- Mrs Boxassars, the widow of

ly whatlirs BONAPARTE is regent of,
it is somewhat difficult to say, and,
so,far as we can , see, there seems to
be no particular reason for limiting
her regency to the coming of age of
her hopeful son. There is no earthly
objection to her being a regent all

Mr One favorite argument of the
advocatesof license is that if the aye
tam is abolished the county will loose
a largb amount now paid for licenses.
The fact is the county does not re
ceive one cent license fees. The hotel
.and saloon s keepers in this county
paid the sate last year $1695. The
county paid over eight thousand dol
lars costs .as the direct, re s ult of
whisky drinkeg. If any one doubts
these statements he can satisfy him.

One noticeable feature of the
preseht% legislature is the very large
number of new members—an indi

that the session will not be a pro

legislation will be attempted. The

State should render all the aid con

On Tuesday at 11 o'clock the
House was called to order, and an
organization effected by the election
of Wu. &mow, speaker, and Gen.
SELFRIDGE, chief clerk. On taking
his seat the speaker delivered a neat
and appropriate speech, which was
listened to with marked attention by
the members. The House then pro
ceeded to loomplete its organization by
the election of sabord-nete officers.

[For the ftzpotrrEn]
It,is noble in men - to be ambitious
of honor, afid we like to see a pure
minded min succeed in an honest
and honoiable ambition for the good
of society, having in view also the
best political interests of the country.
But from nay experience for the past
few years, this has not been the ril
ing motive of politicians, bat on the
contrary, men have forced themselves
forward for selfish party interest sand
promotion, and by dishonest in
trigues,, have gained the- object of
their desires, contrary to the honest
convictions of a majority of our
voters. In fact, it is all " ring" in
both political parties and has been
for many years, and the honest voters
are, called upon at the polls to sus
tain this growing political evil.
Second and sometimes third rate
men are chosen as candidates for of
fice on account of money or popular
ity and forced upon the people,while
honest men of experience and talent,
are left to give place to those men
who have selected themselves or have
been placed before the people for
party ends. It is the office-seekers
who are elected and not the men- of
real exCellence of life and . character
which 7 so much need to isle our
government, righteously. Some . of
our clataorons self-promoting politi
lcians haye lately been " laid away "
'by the righteous verdict of the bal
-1 lot, andlwe hope the honest voters
of our-country will still further bid
defiance to this gross insult to their
rights as citizens. - Bat how is this
evil to be overcome,? We confess
the question,is • a difficult one, but
we think if the "loaves and fishes "=
were less our leading- politicians
would not be barking for office so
greedily, and would allow some small
opportunity for the honest qualified
citizens,to come out of their retire
ment and honor our country with their
services. - When we read of the mo
tion before Congress to increase the .
President's salary to $50,000 a year,
we were astonished that so unwise a
measure should be proposed by the
_party in power, for the time must
come when such gross outrages up
on thd pockets of the people will be
revenged, even at the sacrifice of the
party. Yes, the people will rise up,
as they did in the city of New York,
and with one voice protest against,
the political corruption and wrong,
palmed upon them by those in pow,
er. There is much said by leading
men about retrenchment, when 'we
see men in high position begin to
move the reduction of their own sal
ary, for the sake of example, then,
and not till then shall we see true
political honesty and be ruled by man
worthy of their position., Dee: 26; 1872.
Why It Should Not "el .Passed
EDITOR EXPORTER: is' fair to
presume that your readers are fa
miliar-with the provisions of the so
called " Local Option Bill," publish- .
ed in yolir colums a shqrt time since.
Yet I wish to call the attention of
your readers to the clause in the
third Section Of the Bill, that plainly
shows it was not the intention of the
framers of the Bill, to ntqucz TITE DALE
OY LIQUOR, as a beverage: The fol
lowing is the clause referred to:
Pnovmno, That nothing contained
in this act shall prevent the isiuing of
license to druggists for the sale of li
quarsfor medicinal and manufacturing
P urposes."
The above at mice and totally des
troys the force,of the bill. and "takes
the starch right out.". Every one can
see that it was only made to pacify
the clamor of prohibitioniiita, at the
time of its passage, anti not to render
any real service to the cause of tem
peranak total abstinence, prohibition
or in any way prevent the drinking
of spirituous liquors in the Common
wealth. Gentleman of the legisla
ture, you who framed this abortion of
a bill, the temperance men and pro
hibitionists asked and demanded an
honest effort at your hands, for the
suppression of the rum traffic • but
insteal of corn you gave them h usks;
and the present bantling of a bill
never wad - intended, even for a
moment; as'any thing but a dose of
"soothing syrup," to - the men who
were asking for e passage of a bill
to'houestly eut the sate of intoxi
toting -
To show conclusively that the seeds
of destruction *ere sown in this law
-and every one can see intentional
so—we will give the gist of. a poi ,
tion of it heie, and uncover the "lit
tle Joker," that "he who runs may
see, and see clearly." It povides
that on the day of holding the town?
ship elections the voters of the sev
eral counties and cities of . the Com
monwealth shall vote on the question
of `"license or "nci license." Every
third year thereafter'a similar appeal
shall be made to the ballot;box on
the license question. If the Majori
ty of a city or county shall decide
against license, it shall not be lawful
for any court •or board of commisc
sioners to issue any license for the
sale of spirituous, minims ,or malt
liquors in such cityor county. No
penalty is -
whe 41. this act for its
violation t But ..• licenses are
all swept away, t;<- existiig law
against the cont • d sale of liquors
'remains in full • - and will be ad-!
minielsted by .• As the ex
isting license law is maintainedspiite
as much for the - purpose of Revenue
as ',lex Police, (which revenue if re
moved must of course be levied upon
real estate) it may be" asserted that
tbe total repeal -by a popular vote
will leave the sale of hqnor as free
and untrammeled as that of any other
object of traffd. The present pen
alties against the violation of the li
cense law le very much denounced.
Butl when the whole license system
shall be a • • . shed in a county, by a
popular ote, will be urged, with
propriet tha t ' he penalty for its vio
lation is a. •• Iy nullified as the oys
ter itself. The local option law
merely prevents the courts from issu
ing license on the vote Of a majority
of the citizens of any city or county.
There is no penalty announced in the
act against the sale of intoxicating
drinks. .
The punishment for selling without
licenie remains by implication only,
after the whole license system is abol
ished. Did the framers of the local
option bill designedly cripple it so
that it could be .violated with
impunity? I opine that they did ;
thus giving them credit for being
more regnes than fools,. which I
presume they I would prefer to be
considered.. !• . •
