    of fact on the part of the State Trea
surer. The House has been extre
mely lavish in p:roposect approz
priations; the TrdastaTer exbei3dingly
frank in his statement of . the ability
of the treasury—what he ban do
under certain eiriumatences,and what
he cannot do if shorn of his power or
his resources are cat 'short. Bnt the
House seems deter Mined to go to
the goats' pen fo : F 'wool—to gather
figs fiem thistlesL - 4tnd to make
political capital by indulging in .a
series of mons;:roaitieii t 6 delude the
ignorant. In this state of affairs the
-t,of the'Republioan members Of
the Senate Finance Cpmmittee,which
your readers hava alieady sear, cuts
to the centre of this` whole bn-iness,
and places it faiily to the view of
the people. If t 4 State Treasury is
to be deprived of kevenues, or of the
legitimate use of the leash On hand,
the appropriation's wrist be cut down,
and a' large number of deserving
institutionirdeperlder4 on State aid
for existence must close their opera
tions, or be so restricted as to be
rendered useless. I Th:ere is no other
escape from this - dilemma, and what
' ever injury results to Charity, or out
rage to the beneQ,olent, sentiment of
the State, must be justly chargeable
to The mad party iwhich, has reigned
the House - from. , the' } hour of its
organisation. i
From appearances to-day there is
every. reason to ifear:, that a large
number of important 'will fall
for lack of time and 'disposition to
_pass them . ftually. i The fact is, there
were too many bills read in place in
I).,th honses this 13,ession, too much
legislation of a covert t character in
favor of-corporations attempted, by
;which what is reallyrecinired : to put
the new constitution:" into effect in
`statute laws has been 'so rntich frus
trated as to render the work of the
in many respects a total fail
ure.. Though not: generally, known,
and, indeed, not Sven; partially un,
derstood, it is nevrtlaeless a fact that
Ihe Democracy of the- House have
been endeavoring so tb shape results
as to force thZe Governor to call an
`extra session of the Legislature: But
tht-ir machinations iii [this erection
will' all prove faiiiires,l as under no
state Of 'affairs which; can possibly
out of the pti:asiort and blunders
of these damagogues Will' the Gov
err call a,n extra session of the
Legislature. For the evils w_hich
sprithg from that! which closes
tit nicrrow the D' e nioeracy, are re
sponsible,and on that iisue they ntitist
before the people this year at the
ktliot bax. 1 PA XTON.

The influx,has already set in. Ful

from Salt Lake City daring the - last
three weeks. There is also a large
immigration from Maine and Canada,
and a great number of miners from
Cornwall are on their way hither, all
attracted by the fame :cf the great
.bonanzo. The population of the city
will be largely increased daring next
Summer. Many of the new comers
Will be Wok'lly disappointed, while
others with ability and perseverance
will in time accumulate fortunes.
The demand for houses and lodging
rooms has already commenced, and a
large number of new dwellings will
be required to accommodate the com
ing multitude.
The following is a copy of the offi

the Post Office Department to all
Postmasters, in regard to the observ

of Congress concerning the change

IN TILE old times it ivas usual to
decimate a conquered army that had
fought against its own flag by shoot
ing every tenth man. ,To-day we dec
fmate the vanquished Confederate
hosts - by sending every tenth general
officer to the . Senate of the country'
he fought to destroy.
DEMOCRACY is showing the cloven
hoof in . New York - . The Secretary
of the Mayor is an ex-rebel officer,
and the Commissioner• of Public
Works (TwEED's lucrative position)
is Yrrz-Joir.s.Poirres, an es-officer of
our array, cashiered for Misbehavior
in front - of the enemy.

of purer character and loftier aims
than General Batler, but a great
many people ss'ould rather like to see
him move into Mr. Buflington's dis
trict and go to Congress. He ciottld
be a very lively minority member in
the next Democratic House.

A GREAT deal has been said about

of the country, and mach curiosity has been
exorssed as to the disposition made of the

which it is estuntted, must reach several bun
ched thousand dollars per year. A correspond

their axes,gnus, and budgets, came up the To.
wands, creek Indian trail, and struck in• on the
place now occupied by his son Itei*w, Bylvanus
Modell with whom the old gentleman, now
lives. In the Summer of 1796, he raised a lit
tle grain and built a log hut, into which the
follivrlng Winter the whole family was moved,
wOrking and cutting their way..iip the creek—
there being no roads at that time. Horace was
at this time 13 years old, and entered at ones
upon the rugged duties of frontier llfe.
••In 1799, his father Ezra was tried and con.
victed fur settling and holding his lands under
the Connecticut title, and sentenced to pay a
fine of $2OO and ,imprisonment in the county
jail foe 00 di*s. -Subsequently. on account , of
the mime thing, the Sheriff of Lyeoming
ty canto up' and levied on all their personal pro.
perty Ind burned their house. At the sale, the
property was bid tlf by a friend, and left for
the use of the famihi.
"While the Sherift was bnrning the ,honse, a i
ballet'from some Delghbor'a rifle passed so
comfortably near that he thonght best to make
a rapid retreat to Williamsport.
A cOmpromise on land title was soon made,
which coded all difficulties In that direction,
only it was carried into politics for some years l
'ltio interest of the Yankees was representi
ed in the l e egislatnre by Col: Franklin for ser.
eral years. Horace cast his first vote for him
in 1804, the same year that Thomas Jefferson
was elected to the second term of President of
the United States, and also _voted for General
Grant, at' his' second .electron, 1872. Having
been a voter tor over seventy years, and seen
big children's children'onto the third genera.

opens with a ueautifol, narrative by Miss CoN-i

• Tni readings and recitations of
Prof. ./i.tnnaltriSell, on: Wednesday, evening of
last week, seemed to give groat satisfaction to
the audience. He has many strong points as a
reader, that whose bath eyes to see can see, or
ears to bear can hear. His appearance is con
ciliating, to begin with. He bar a pleasant,
friendly face, looking like a gentleman, as he
really) is. There is no swagger or conceit in his
manner-no assumption of airs or display of
professional tricks. He engages In his work
with all .seriousness and earnestness, feeling
tnat the business of rendering . the places se
lected is an educational and elevating ono,-and
bighls respecting his art. His voice is sweet
and clear—an organ of varied expulsion, dab
oratelY trained and under complete mastery.
His adtiag is life-like and full ot . feeling :ho
seemi to lose his own Identity for the tune in
the characters he represents. In the Famine,
from iHiawatha, and in Ihe selections from
Dicasiss, he showed his fine elocutionary cul-
ture and histrionic talent to great advantage.
In many respects his recitation from Hiawatha
was exquisite.. There was a strong flavor of
the Indian spirit in it; the only exception to be
taken inn the score of congruity being the vio
lent sobbing and weeping of Hiawatha. We
do not believe that LDNOFELLOW meant so to
project him. Itather,,we see the true warrior
these verses :
"t 6 both bands his lime he covered,
Seven long days and nights he eat there,
As it in a•esrnon he pat there,
SmcAles& molioniegs, unconscious
Of the daylight or th. darkness." •
The reader of the poem wilt see that there is
nothing in the previous lines inconsistent with
this outward stolidity. His prayer to OrrcricK
Manrfo, and his cry of anguish when he found
Miwnirtana dead, by nn means imply sobs and
tears. On the other hand, they are the wild
ontbreak of a strong, tearless soul; of a heart
that can burataannder but never break.
As to his reordering, Dotheboy'd Ball , it
was terribly powerful. '

few days. But only to come tumblittfi back to
the original standard when it was realized that
the prospects of a road had departed with the
engineer and his corps. The truth, upon Killer

on the Borth, south, east and west, that here
we willhavo to stay. But as we . have a daily
