, AN effort is being, made to organ

plaito draw the stir Plus labor of the
cities into tlie rural districts bf the
old States (particularly the Middle),
where there, are ;hundreds of thou
sands of acres of unoccupied land,
some of which. is the richest on the
continent. There is no quel+tion
about the feasibility 'of subh
if the-. Proper men take hold of it, and
the : result would. be of the very.high
cst benefit to the settler and to the
State at large.. Here in Pennsylva-
nia the'amount of such land is cnor
mous. It lies in neglected richness
ulong the lines of ai the. railroads
traversing the , State, .and could be
made to yield crops which would cre
ate revenues of( fabulous value. In
addition to the agrieultqmlwlvafita
ges which would be derived from the
: cultivation of this land, the develop
iment of the mineral resources that
would attend its occupation would
add immenseti to the material
wealth- of the 'State, from whicb\ rev:
enues could be derived, liutof whch
industry wonld reap the latest re

portune than a dwell direVted move
ment of this kind. The bulk of this
lind ought to lie sold at- very low
prices, while • there are very large
quantities of it unpatented which thy
State would have the right to Sell.
We cannot locate the leaders, of this
new enterprise, bnt , will watch With
interest whatever she • it may .as :
etune. That it is . highly practica,.
there is no doubt whatever. Near

THE South wants money.' That's,
what she has gone into Congress for.
Some days since, we showed from
figures which a cotemporary had
compiled from the file's of the House
of .Repiesentatives, that • the , South
• demanded the sum Of $150,000.000.
There is no Way to reduce this mai:.
When it 'comes to an item for the .
- army or the navy, for the coast sur 7 .
yey, or for • printing, the South
ready with anamendment to all such.
apropriation bills, to cut them down.
There is no time wasted in discuss'ng
such motionsthe motion to re - duce
is made and carried, and. that's
end of it. • But, for. these Southern
claims,,the amount demanded is $l5O
- and this must stand. It
dare not .be 'reduced. On the con
trary, since these, "Claims" have
been put in and thus been embodied
in an appropriation bill, there has
been an addition proposedainounting
to $42,000,000 inure, all to cover
Southern, ,claims which makes the
amount thus d_emanded to pay South
ern claims, sine Congress assemblckl
$1:12,000,000 : And what -are' these
claims? The answer can only be
for losses sustained while resisting - .

" What is that worth , per -pound? ".
" Two ci"nts," w./s • the reply. He

sheep: "One ceat," -was the answer.
One pound of either piece stewed with
a few bits or slices of bread, within,

`His answer is that he has lived in a

- WASHINGTON, April 6.--State l gen,

for several days on matters Connect
ed with the organization of the• cam
paign_in northwestern• Pennsylvania.
Ile gives 'a very satisfactory account
of the feeling amongst Republicans,
and' shows that every nan is prepar
ed to do his duty. At no time have
the republican voters of Pennsylva-,
nia had ainore important crisis to
meet. In addition to the-olection of
State officers and a Legislature to
select a Senator, they have a Bepub-
Bean representation in Congress,
which will help to give that party
restored ascendency in the, lower
branch, which will inevitably balost
in• the Senate • after the fourth of
March next. There is no doubt of a
gain; of two representatives in Ohio,
twe in,lndianna, one in Massachu
setts ;- also, others in New York,
Ndw Jersey ankMaryland. iThese,
in connection with other prospects
in the West and on the Pacific coda,
render it almost certain, with proper
exertloni l that the Republicans - will
control t e next House, and especi
ally with judicious nominations and
an active • campaign. Tim meeting
of the National and , Congressional
Committees, as indicated-: by the
views expressed, promised these re

leratic members of ' the SOSO , of
Representatives met in caucus this
evening for the purpose of nomina
ing a Door-keeper, which
was made vacant by the removal of
Mr: Polk. Gen. Charles Waield, of
Georgia, was nominated on the first
ballot... The vote stood as follows
Gen. Field, 69 ; Gen. Shields,' of
Missouii, 20; Harry Mc - Coy, of Mary
land, 18 ; Walter IL French, of
;Massachusetts, 7': W. K. Pendleton,
of West Virginia, 2- Total vote
polled, 116.- Gen. Field is a native
of Bentucky. He was graduated at
West'point in 1849; served in the
Confederate Army under Gen. Lee,
ann ,soon after the close of the war
entered the Army of the Khedive of
Egypt where he remained until 1877,
when he returned to the United
States. His political disabilities
were removed about two months ago.
Whcrnma it will be the work of
the smiling new silver dollar of the
natural order of things, certain it is
that the dawn of better times is
near. We see it, first, in the marked

visions can be bought now at prices
that ruled before'the war. Clothing'
is way down, anti shoe leather the
same. Rents have tumbled terrible
within the past two years, and a good
house, comfortable ana pleasantly lo
cated, can be rented in this city to-day
from one hundred 'dollars upward.
Truly this is a happy condition of
things. All that is needed now is
the awakening of 'our industries,
and even this is nearer than many.
people think. Tile signs of the times
tell us that money will be freer and
plentier this year than for many years
past. The money lenders are getting
a little more confidence in men, and
very soon capitalists will be looking
for safe investments. Factories will
be started, the idle mills will be . in
spired anew, furnace fires will be
- built, and gladness will be upon us
all, before we know it. There is some
thing in the shape of events' . that so
informs the careful observer. We
must practice strict. economy for a
season yet, but we believe that-before
next fall comes the bright beams of
prosperity will flood the land from
Maine to Texas.— TVilks-Barre Leader.

It is certainly better for a people to

. . ,
Eamon REPonlrite : About three weeks
Since I started from Athens,, intending to
be absent about' a irei3k.or ten days on a
brief trip West—as Tar as Chicago; at
least.' I have extended my tour far be
yond the time, occisiened by unexpected
delays, detentions, etc. On myroute hem
I passed a few days in Central Illitthis;
and such weather - and such roads I never
before saw, in my life. It seemed as tho'
the wind would blow the very marrow
from one's bones. Mud l Talltabout mud
in 'Bradford countjr; why, oar people
have no conception of the genuine article.
The people of Illinois are too wise iu their
generation to even pretend at this time of
year 'to use a spring wagon ;• 'the. chief
traveling is wean dished on borselsek or
oil mules. I stop • $ at a little station in
Piatt county, and t, was necessary for ate
-to -go a distance bfbent three a•half
miles on some bus ne . My first thoffgh t
was to get ho rseani t
buggy forth° pur
pose, but f t $ 't way of traveling im- ,
practicable.' A - • ntleman offered me his
horse, but as it ha been some years since
I had been in the $ dle and I was totally
unaccustomed to ,iud navigation, I po
litely declined. I finally 'got an opportu-,
nity of riding in • r i iumber wagon driven
by four horses t•' within a-half mile of
my destination, a• d availed myself of it.
After a few Lou : of suffering the tors
moats of •ft lost so 1, I arrived at the de
-1 sinstspot.' One ' hole day's rest, how
ever, nerved me p for t making a wagon
journey of six ilea to a station on an
other road, but ' the man who was to
take me had but ono team lie did not ven
ture to add th weight of a wagon-box
to his wagon ; "eve went without that in
cumbrance. 'Pfhis credit, I should add
that I was given the post of honor, and
that was a seat on the reach, near the
hind axle. Wherever the mud had dried
it was as hard as if frozen. Some of the
time those dried humps would threaten
to scramthe boots off my feet; then I
would thoughtlessly straighten out my
limbs horizontally; which would bring
my feet directiy in front of the hind wheel,
when before I could Protect myself the
rim Of the wheel, which continually
brought up fresh,' ,unadulterated mud,
would generously drop its burden upon
my boots. I am naturally "long suffer
ing," and noted film my patience wherever
I am known, but some expressions es
caped me that I do not feel responsible
Tor. I remember 'the driver saying once,
"I ' notice you can swear when you're a
mind'to." I apologised immediately, but
smother beastly " gob " of mud deposit
ing itself on my boots, made me instantly
regret the apology. While I-was trying
to avoid damage •to my boots on the one
hand from the hard bunches and hunks
of earth that came up close to . the axle,
and on the other hand the mud from the
wheels, the driver made the casulatory
remark that, the worst road was still
ahead. I believe I could then and. there.
"brained" this man without any coni
putiction of conscience'. ~So soon as I
could get my breath and adjust inYtray
eling bag and pluek up sufficient courage,
as well as suppress my murderous feelings,

feelings or whether such -a, reality. was
possible. lie repeated 'the assertion,.

LETTER TROY HARRISBURG
HAItItIBDURCI, April 5, 1678
The new National party having author
ized the Chairman of its State Committee"
to run the machine for it, at least as far
as all preliminaries are concerned, 'that
gentleman has issued still another call for
a State Convention. The idea of being
first in the field, appears to hvae taken
entire possession of the head of the " un
known quantity" party, awl lie issues
his orders with as much care, facility and
grace as some military chieftain.
The last call of Chairman F. P. Dewees,
for the meeting of the Convention of the
National' party of Pennsylvania, was is=
sued at Pottsville, on Tuesday, the 2nd
lost, and• names the Bth of . 3lay, • at 11
o'clock A, 3t., as the time and Philadel
pluda the place. The call, Which is lengthy,
embodies instructions to members of the
new party how to secure representation
and urges active work to' insure success.
It will be remembered the Cony, ntion
of the admirers of - laborers and green
'backers was first called to meet on the sth
The Democrats then selected the 22nd
of May, and Pittsburg, as the time and
"place for their Convention. Mr. Dtwees;
who, It is 'alleged, does as lig A is told, by
Frank Hughes, a former .I4Mer of the
Democracy, next proclaimed that his
friends would assemble on the 15th of
May. This day having been designs
by the Republican State Committee, f r
the meeting of the Convrution of: t t
Party, and the managefof the Nationals,
bound to be ahead of all competitors in
the race fot an early start, heralded their
last order from the Pottsville headquar
ters, as above instructed. As the third
time is said to be the charm, it is probable•
the business is now fixed.
the in • 'cations point unerringly to
the fact that the coming political cam
paign will be a protracted, exciting and
bitter one. In this connection it may be
stated' that some rather startling develop
ments were made at Scranton, on Abe 2nd'
lust, at the meeting= there, of the legisla
tive committee. to investigate the cause
and effects of the railroad or labor
of last summer. z . . •
A miner-named Jono. 11. Powell testi
fied to the - existence there of a secret
organization known as the " Knights of
Labor," which, he said, were 18,001)
strongin and around Scranton. Toe oh-
ject of the order, be said, was the eleva
tion of labor, by legal and honorable
mons. It. was not a beneficiary, order,
but\ would help a brother in distress, and
was \ not for the purpose of aiding or en
.wing strikes. Tho • witness also
stated that be presumed there were lodges
throughout Demme county composed of
all clauses \ of workingmen,and in the'
lodge to which - be belonge there were
carpenters, \ mechanics, blacksmiths,
miners and mirukengineens. Now if these
lodges are'scatterell throughout the state,
and should take ahand in the coming po
'dial fight, their influence will no doubt
be felt, but which 4 the two greater
parties willhe the most Affected,
is one of the things " At lab can

not a political
,Tarty. .It is a conspiracy.
-It does not appeal to -publics opinion, but
seeks to control political affairs by the
secret machinery of its lodges."_
The editor. of- the Patriot, is evidently
alarmed and somewhat °lonised at - the
prospect of his party being injured by the
now secret societies, and ho takes time by
the forelock in thus warning the canter*
fled to look, out for breakers. Some allegi
ance, however, should be made for the
bad temper- displayed by the Patriot this
morning, when it is rememberedbow. the
Greenbackers or. Nationals went back on
the Democrats in the organization 'of; the
councils in this city, the other day. It is
a generally accepted fact that the honors
and emoulenta of (Alice enter. largely into

great unwashed Derneerat ward bum

this role. .•

• .This central Democratic 'organ, which
is the mcMth.piece of Senator, Wallace, is
also in a bad way about the 'Mariner in
which Gen. McCandles, Secretary. of in
ternal Affairs,. who is a candidate for the
Democratic nomination for Governor, per
mits his.clerks to perforin their duties. It,
is charged by this paper .that two of these

thus publicly called Co the fast ." that his.
clerks are 'being paid by the state to get
up lying electioneering documents to be

It will thus be seen that within as well as
without the Democratic camp, trouble is
brewing, while the leaders arc both alarm-

and his folloggiers having ordained that

The Senate having taken a recess until
the 9th inst., from Thursday; the - 28th,
ult., is. not in session, this week; and the
House did not begin work uptil Tuesday
evening, consequently legislative business
has been a little dull. On Thuesday even
ing it was with difficulty a-bare mtorum
of members was secured, when twenty=
six bills were put through the formality
of first reading.. 'Among these was the
bill providing for a tax on all drinks sold,
and the collection of the same by means
of a bell punch.
In the House on Nednesday, Mr. Dick
ey rose to a privileged question, stating
in substance that the committee on rail
roads, had had Senate bill• No. 229, to pre t
ventd iscriminationlin carrying freights by
railroads, in their possession for ton days .
anJ that under the rules be would make
a motion to discharge the committee from
its further consideration: After several
suggestions - oy members in regard to the
matter, Speaker Meyer decided the. mo-•
tion out of order—that it was übt a Privil
eged question. I
' Mes.srs. Jackson of Mercer and. Dickey
appealed from the decision of the Speak
er, and Mr. Billingsley took the chair.
The `pecker (on the floor) argued that
this was nut included iu the , privileged
questions mentioned specifically in the
rules, which are motions for adjournment,
poStponement, commitment, the previous
question, amendment or reconsideration.
A number of members participated in
the discussion, for and against the point
of order,r wheir ? ..after nearly two hoirs
were thus consumed, on the question
"Shall the decision of the Chrir stand as
the judgment of the House?" the yeas
were-102 and the nays 6-1; andithe House
sustained the decision of the Speaker.
The consideration and final passage in
the House, on Wednesday, of an act fix-.
ing the compensation of members of the
General Assembly. and )the number, du
ties and compensation ofi the officers_ and
employees thereof, consumed a good, por
tion of both morning and afternoon ses
sions. While the bill was being-consid
ered• Mr. Myer (Speaker) moved to gO
into committee of the whole for general
amendments, which was agreed to.
Mr. Myer then moved to•reduce the sal
aries of memberp-te $BOO, whereupon Mr.
Quirk moved to amend still further to
make it $5OO per annum.
Mr. James opposed both the amend
ments, -because they Were not. really in
tended for true reform,
.but for the-pur
prise of killing. the bill, and, besides, he
did not think $l,OOO was one cent too
Mr. Myer defended his amendment aiid
said lie was sincere in his.purpose, and if
reform was intended by this hill ho hoped
the reform would-commence at the head.
Messrs. Foster and Gillett supported the
amendment of their colleague, , Mr. Myer,
but it, w ith several other amen= nts,were
lost, and the question recurred on the or
iginal bill as presented to the House, viz,
fixing the salary at $1 3 000.. A !number of
additional - amendments were then offered
and ; voted down, when the bill paSsed
finally—yeas 105, nays 45..
Members' salaries remain at $l,OOO
and officers' salaries are reduced about 2.1
per cent,. while the niimber of 'officers is
reduced about one-fifth. There is very
little probability of this bill passing the
At, the session of the House on Thurs
day afternoon the railroad conTraittee,
after having very materially amended the
Senate freight discrimination bill, reported
it with a negative recommendation. On
motion of Mr. Dickey, who again rose to
a privileged question, the bill was recom
mitted to the committee on judiciary gen
eral. This committee held a meeting last,
evening to consider The bill, and_ this
morning it. was reported to the House
with an affirmative recommendation, ex
actly in the shape it had passed the Senate.
Among the bills that passed the House
finally, on ,Thursday afternoon, was an
act granting pensions to the surviving
soldiers of the Mexican war ; also an act
making an appropriation for the - payment
of gratuities to the soldiers of the war of
1812, of their widows, allowed under the
act of March 30; 1800, and the various
