Der.. APPEAL—UNION VOLUNTEER RE
To ike Citizens of Philadelphia: It will be three
on the 27th day of May, 1E64, since the Union
Volunteer Refreshment -saloon commenced its
operations. The Committee never have pressed
their claims ; neither have they lost sight of the
fact that there were other institutions equally •
worthy of public confidence and support; and they
have endeavored to discharge the duties entrusted
to them in an honest, economical, quiet and unos
tentatious manner. Up to this time we have been
generously supported by contributions from our
friends and a portion of the monied corporations
of Philadelphia. We have tried to lessen the bur
dens of our kind friends by annual fairs in June;
the first was a success; the second comparatively
a failure, in consequence of the raid into Pennsyl.
wards last summer, and there is no prospect of
holding one this season as intended. The high
.price of provisions, and the heavy and constant
demand on our Saloon bare nearly depleted our
Treasury, and as the signs of the times point to a
series of protracted battles, and as there will no
doubt still further calls on our limited resources,
.‘ we are compelled to make this appeal to the libe l .
ality' of the citizens of Philadelphia and vicinity
_or Assistance, otherwise our future usefulness
. much impaired.
Contributions in cash and noticelif provisions
and Sanitary stores for our use will be received by
the following gentlemen:,
Thomas Thomas Brainard, No. 634 Pine street.
Robbins Esq., _President Philadelphia
Bank. Chestnut street, west of Fourtn. street.

[Correspondence of the Philadelphia Evening
HARMISBURG, May 3, lE6l.—The report of the
Joint Committee for the investigation of frauds
upon soldiers has"been published, and is creating
no little attention. The evidence elicited before
' the Committee was of the most positive character,
but the fricnds of the persons implicated express
their belief that there will be a satisfactory expla
nation given to each and every,charge. The Cora
nuttee held its sessions for more Than five weeks,
during which period's number of witnesses were
examined, and they only closed their labors be
cause they believed that to delay their report until
the next session, would be "to offer immunity to
crimes on the part of those who have been guilty
of gross conduct that calls for prompt punishment
at the hands of the 'United States." The report is
very severe upon those “who for lucre or gain,
were willing to descend to the baseness of trafficl/-
ing in their fellow-men," and, as will be remem
bered, was accepted by. the Legislature and re.
ferred to the,War Department. The names of the
officers and others Implicated have already been
published in the Philadelphia journals,' and as
they will be brought prombsently before the pub
lic as soon as the War Departmentdecides whether
they are to be released from the stigma placedupon
them or otherwise, it is unnecessary to republish
them in this letter.
Much of last evening's session was occupied in
the consideration of the House bill leplizing the
running of passenger railway cars in every part
of this Commonwealth, on the Sabbath, the notice
to take it up having been made by Mr. McManus,
of Philadelphia. As soon, however, as the mo
tion was - made, it was discovered that there was
a difference, of sentiment prevailing among the
Philadelphia, delegation, which, with the opposi
tion of the countrymembers, some of whom pro
bably never saw one of these public conveniences,
would ensure the defeat of the bill. Upon the mo
tion to, consider the bill, the vote was forty-two
yeas forty. one nays. four of the members
tram your city being absent. Messrs. Cochran,
Miller,. Rancoast, Smith, Watt and Watson voted
in the negative. Rex, of Montgomery, being a
cautions man, and doubtless having future
lame in view, stated that he did not desire
to vote. That all the Philadelphians who voted
against the consideration were opposed to the pro
ject is far from the truth; for although some were
doubtless conscientious, others, knowing that the
bill could not pass, were afforded an excellent op
portunity to curryfavor with that portion of the
community who are opposed to running the care
Mr. McManus rose from his seat with the inten- '
nod of offering an amendment making the bill ap
plicable only to Philadelphia, but Smith, of Ger
mantown, was too sharp for him, and evidently
for the purpose of stopping further action, .called
for the previous question. Mr. Smith, in the
course of his remarks, pronounced "himself an
'iron man '
" who could not be melted.
The voteto ascertain whether the main question
should be put was lost, when Mr. Lee moved to
amend by making the bill apply only to the north
districts of Philadelphia. Be said every 'tither
town in the suburbs of Philadelphia was accom
modated on Sunday, except Frankford. The
church goers; andin fact all the residents there
were in favor of the bill,,and he had received nre.
merous 'petitions for it. • -
Mr. Barger, after administering a severe rebuke
to Mr. -Smith for the unceremonious manner in
which he had attempted to cut off debate, ridf:
culed, m'ucli to the amusement of the House, his
ludicrous remark that he was an "iron man."
The "iron man," he said, had cars runs lug to
his district on the Sabbata two or three tim,es In
-he day, ems which in violation of- law ran with
undue speed through,a built up portion of the city.
The opposition of Mr. Smith was selfish in the ex;
treme. He could not understand why people op- •
posed the bill. The majority of the delegates and
a very large number of the citizens - ,were in favor .
Of it, and it was the only city in ihe Country, it
not in the world, where cars did not run on Sun
day. Even puritanical Boston permitted it. The
gentleman from Germantown opposed it because
he was supplied at d was therefore not interested.
He,' Mr. Barger, — was willing that the Councils
should designate the hours of running, if that
would give the privilege.
Mr. Smith said that nine-tenths of the citizens
Were opposed to the indiscriminate running.
Mr. Miller of West Philadelphia, made ft fevi •
remarks in opposition.
Mr. Watson rose and - said he hoped the Legbia.
Lure Would never pass an act allowing cars to run

Stockholders of the: LEnaGa ZINO 00.11-

were elected to serve as Directors during the ensu
through the streets of Philadelphiet,on Sunday.
The quiet of the city on thltt day shouid be a source
of pike, and the Legislature should do nothing to
inteifere with that qttiet. Such was the voice of
a large majority of his constituents The noise

to quiet of to the cause of religion: All' kinds of

members desired to make Philadelphia, like Faris'
or New Orteahs, they could effect it Philadelphia_
;the bill. - • . .
Sir. Quigley said that all the-religious residents!
of Philadelphia were not opposed to the cars ran-..
Meg on-Sur. day, and as a proof Of biS statement he`.
would only remark that on one occa.cion he saw
Mr. Watson conversing on Chestnut street with
one of his (Watson's) c-nstitnents,'who. although
a strict member of the Church, stated that he
would never vote for a candidate who voted
.against the movement. Mr. Quigley de
clared that the - cars , should run'
for the benefit of the working men
and women who had no other day for recreation,
and for the enjoyment of the • pure, fresh sir. The
puritamcal opponents of the bill. however, de.,
sired the meebanics and other laboring people to
won, all the week and then stifle on Sunday.
Henry Ward Beecher had announced himself in
favor of it, and in 'England the.)companies were
compelled to carry workingmen at half price on'
Sunday.; but in. Philadelphia none can ride on the
Sabbath unless he owns or can afford to pay flee
dollars for a carriage. One carriage made more
noise in going over the cobble stones of the streets
than six cars over the raila. He intended to So be
fore the people on this quelition, and he felt assured
that even if the bill did not pass now, it would not
be long before a similar -one would. He repre
sented the workingmen, who needed the benefits to
be derived from cars_ moving..on.Sunday, butshis
colleague from Germantown represented the aris
tocracy. who can afford to drive two. forty nags.
A passage oft words betetook. place between
Messrs.' Quigley and Smith, but Such was the con
fusion that nothing could be heard except an attn.
siert made by the former to the latterts corporeal
Mr. Quigley then continued his remarks and
read-a local a Philadelphia newspaper in re
paid to a meeting held by' the opponents at a
Church on /face Street which was very slimly at
tended, and where math apathy was evinced.
Mr Miller said there was not one in twenty in
his Restrict who was not opposed to the cars run
ning on Sunday. In reference to the statement
that the people of Frankford were in favor of it, he
nskep the Clerk to read a remonstrance signed by
T. P. Colton, W. Dubas,-N Brown, J. A. Q.nig
ley, and Otters, and a letter to a similar effect frem
the pastor of the First - Baptist Church at Frank
Mr. 'Quigley said that a number of the remon
strances were signed hylStinday school children
and not by , citizens.- •
A gentleman by the name of from the
conntry, - then' took - the fit.or, and made a very
„In opposition. It. was well
worded, but judging from the frequent and irre
levant remarks of the member, not well. timed:-
Members et the Legislature do trot generally relish
serrdons, and as Mr. Bill's address was just such
a one, in language. and elocution, as a person
would expect to hear delivered from a pulpit, It
was not surprising that some of the members
shot Id attempt to make •it *ludicrous by such re
pollees as “Yea" . "My Lord," and , Amen."
Mr. Josephs called for the , previous question,
• and at ten minutes past ten o clock, by a rote of
l 5 yeas to 40 nays, the House decided that •the
' main qpestion•sliould not be • put, thus killing the
' bill, and an adjournment took place.
Those persons, therefore, whe have looked for
ward with some anxiety to securing the privilege
of riding at a low rate outhe Sabbath, will have to
await the opening of a new session, while their
opponents will have the satisfaction of knowing

Look at the map and you may discover navigable
waters, where transports may convey troops into
the enemy's country, from whence more cotton
can be obtained than even all that which was
burned on the Red river. .
If General Banks had deter mined to advance to
Mansfield, he might have done ee by fighting
harder battles than those at Sabine • Cress Roads
and Pleasant Hill. But it is the opinion of most
intelligent military men that the condition of the
Red river was such that he could not have kept nn
his supplies to ranch Shreveport, and that the
inevitable sacrifice of lifelnvolved in fighting other
battles between- Grand Ecore and Shreveport
would not be justified by the very small advan

Heavy rains set in, so er

fortifying there, and had a line. of • rifle pits and

miles long. This was hidden by a belt of timber
along a creek, and commanded the Washington
and Camden road and other approaches. General
Steele felt them cautiously, ascertained their posi

their fortifications, and would 'have cut them- to
pieces by an enfilading fire, bad not Dad Price,

yesterday afternOon,, Themes W. Adams, ma-
chinist, No. 46 North Seventh street, was ar
raigned on a charge of entrusting nis boiler and
etgine to an incompetent person. The premises
occupied by Mr. Adams extend back to the yard
of the Zane Street Public
.S.zhnol-lionse, and for.
some time peat the controller, directors and teach
ers of the school have become alarmed for the
safety of themselves and the scholars. The .neigh
bore had obtained the knowledge that. the defend
ant had a boy, an apprentice, to whom lie en
trusted the boiler and engine. Complaint was
made to the Mayor, and a warrant was issued for
the arrest of Mr. Adams. A number of persons were
examined at the hearing. Patrick Barry, whose
age is about sixteen years, was placed upon the
stand, and said that he went as an apprentice to
Mr. Adams in Jannary last. After he had been
there a few weeks the engineer was discharged•
and the lad was at once placed in the engine roma,
where be had occasional instruction during the
day, say an hour or so at a time, - for' one week,
given him by the forenian and . Mr. Adams. He ac
knowledged that be had never read any work on
steam or steam engine's; had no practical know
ledge of running an engine other than that he had
received during the week mentioned, but said that
ho thought he was competent to run an engine. -
Mr. Adams said that he considered the boy was
competent to attend to his duties, under the in
struction be bad received; thought him as- fully
competent as nine-tenths of the men calling them
selves engineers, and_quite as good as -many who
even now wear the naval uniform; that besides
tnis, he (Mr. Adams) and the foreman had super
visory-care of the boiler and engine.
The lad stated that be generally got to the shop
at six o'clock in the morning; would ilia - up, and
start the engine; the foreman wonld come there an
hour or so afterwards, look-at the boiler, and then
go up stairs and attend to his business. On some
occasions, when the lad was sent away on
business, than his place would.be supplied by an
other boy. •
Tho Mayo. said that he would hold the case un
We understand that Mr. Adams has since sold
out and closed his establishment;and it is therefore
probable that no further proceedinga will be had
against him. The case was intended as a test one.
• CONsrhUCTION OP PLA.NT,HOnsBEI.,--ThiS was
the object of an essay read last evening before the
Pennsylvania Horticultural: Society. by William
Saunders. He said that light is the principal agent
in the groWth of plants, and in adopting structures
for plant habitations this point must be o kept pro
minently in vlew. In constructing them they
should be as low its possible, in order to more rea.
dily equalize the temperature.. -An angle of from
thirty to thirty-five degrees will be more suitable
to the generality, of houses than any higher. Am-)
pie ventilation should in all cases be provided.
Curved roofs have been and are still advocated by
many in certain situations. Their architectural
beauty forms a pleasing contrast, but possesses no
ad vantages over the straight roofs.
