The..news from the French capital is
exciting and of the highest importance.
The Thiers government in attempting to
subdue the insurrection in the quarters'
of Montmatre and Belleville, was not on
ly beaten back after a bloody battle, but
was obliged to abandon the greater part
of Paris to the insurgents, President
Thiers issued 's proclamation on Friday
demanding that the insurrectionists
should lay down their arms, and threat
ening force as the alternative. On Sat
urday four regiments of infantry. a regi
ment of chasseurs, and a squadron of
cavalry moved against the insurgents, but
upon reaching Montmartre, instead of
obeying orders they broke- ranks and fra
ternized with the people. Subsequently
a large force of gendarmes were sent into
the insurrectionary district They charg
ed, the heights of Montmartre, and after
severe fighting were repulsed. A large
number were killed. In this conflict
General &mine was killed, General Pa
tare] wounded, and Generals De Palad
ines, and Clement captured.
The two latter were taken before a tribu
nal styling itself the Central Revolution
ary Committee, tried by drumhead, sen
tenced, to death, and shot in the Garden
of bredes Rogers. All accounts concur
that they died bravely. After the victory
at Montmartre the insurrectionists march
ed through Paris and encamped at the
Champs de Mars. The government troops
under General Vinoy and the entire force
of gendarmes have been withdrawn to the
left bank of the Seine, leaving the right
bank in possession of the revolutionists.
It is not very clear what the leaders of the
latter dsaire. They are apparently ap
prehensive that the Thiers government,
or the Bordeaux Assembly, contemplates
a coup d'etat whereby the republic may
be oLerthrontn and the monarchy restor

on the events of Saturday, describes them

SENATE, March 16.—The House bill
granting permission for the erection of a
I monument to Professor Morse was passed.
The House resolution for a final adjourn
ment was temporarily laid on the . table.
A number of bills were introduced and
I referred. At the expiration of the mora
-1 ing hour the House bill making appro
priations for the payment of additional
clerks and messengers in the Pension Of
fice was taken up. Pending action on it,
the Senate, at 1:15 r. M., went into Exec
utive session, and soonNfter adjourned.
Housr--Mr. Kelley rose to a personal
explanation, asking that lie be excused
from service on the Select Committee on
account of ill-health. He entered his sol
etnn protest against Mr. Butler's charge
that the high-tariff men had entered into
a combination with the Democracy in
the passage of Mr. Peters' resolution. Mr.
Butler denied that be had made such an
accusation against Mr. Kelley, bat ap
plied it to others. Mr. Peters reminded
Mr. Butler that a majority of the Repub
licans present voted for the resolution.
Mr. Butler argued that the resolution was
sprung on the House for a' trick. Mr.
Dawes asked an explanatioM, Did he ap
ply the word "trick" to the fifty-eight Re
publicans who voted for the resolution ?
Speaker Blaine called Mr:Wheeler, of New
i 1 ork, to the chair, and came down him
self to the floor, and proceeded to deliver
one of the most scathing speeches heard
in the House fur many years against But
ler. He denounced the letter of Butler
' as false in its statements and mean in its
insinuations and inferences. Butler, he
mid, had spoken of tricks; the whole
country knows that the gentleman from
! Massachusetts was the embodiment of
trickery. He charged Butler with insin
cerity as a party man, and intimated that
if it should further his ambition, he
(Butler) would go over to the Democrat- !
is side, and lead them as gallantly as he
did at the Charleston I Convention, when
he voted fifty-six times for Jeff. Davis for
President. Butler replied with equal bit
.— 41.1 k. 41m,
last Congress and in thin ghat the
Speaker did not regard him with a friend
ly eye. He knew what it was by exper
ience to be on had terms wiih a Speaker.
I Butler then went on to say that he still
! regarded the introduction of Blaine's res
! olution yesterday as a trick. Said lie,
for ways that are dark and tricks that are
vain, commend me to Blaine, which I rise
to maintain. This created au uproar of
laughter on both sides of the Howse.
While the discussion was in progress the
Democrats left their seats and came over ,
to the Republican side. They took ne'
part other than spectators in the fight,
but they seemed to enjoy it immensely.
The running debate was excited, and
continued for an hour. Messrs. Kelly,
Shellabarger, Burdett, Butler and Coburn
were severally excused from serving on
the Committee. At 2:40, the House ad-

disabilities of Senutor-elect Vance, of
North Carolina, was reported -favorably,
• but Mr. Pomeroy objected to its consid
eration. A bill passed to enable the At
lautic and Pacific Railroad Company to
, mortgage its road. Mr. Anthony sub
' mitted a resolution for the appointment
of a joint select committee to investigate
alleged Southern outrages. After some
debate the resolution was adopted. A
bill to define a gross of matches passed.
The appropriation bill for the payment
of additional clerks in the Pension office
I was taken up, and several amendments
!adopted, among three, one repealing the
law for the commencement of a new Con
exess on March 4, instead of December.
Without final action it was laid aside, and
r. Anthony's resolution limiting busi
ness during the present session to legis
lation upon the South and deficiency bills
was taken up. Mr. Sumner opposed.
Without action, at 3:30 P. M., the. Senate

naturalization and citizenship as soldiers.
Also the bill authorizing the Commis
sioner of Internal Revenue to determine
the form of Revenue stamps. Mr. Butler
made several attempts to get his Ku-

Marriage, moat people w v ill agree, is a
serious matter. '1)0 ot:it arise the rela
-tions of husband. and wife, parent and
child, and all tlielegal rights and obliga
tions that pertain to them. 1 A new bill
was introduced ifew daya:since in our
Legislature in regard to marriages. , We
do not deem it very important. The
main effect of it would be to .make a rec
ord of a certain class of marriages, and
given fee to the clerk recording them, ,The
bill makes if tho.dity of
Any person empowered by law to join others
in marrmge, to thstrequire, of those presenting
themselves for marriage, a license issued by the
Clerk of the Orphans' Court of the county
where the marriage ceremony Is to lie perform
ed, under the name and official seal of said
Clerk. and within thirty days after the cere
mony, the person or persons performing the
ceremony shall return the license to the Clerk,
with an endorsement giving the date of mar
riage, the name of the person peribrming the
ceremony, and the names of some of the wit
This, it will be perceived, forbids any
person empowered by law to solemnize a
marriage, to do so without a license. But
it leaves out of sight entirely the condi
tion of the law in Pennsylvania, and in,
we presume, most of the United States,
and iu the Kingdom of Scotland, through
which the intervention of anybody "em
powered by law to join others in mar
riage" is wholly unnecessary. A marriage
is a contract between two parties if
they consent to be a man and wife, they
are man and wife. Witnesses are conven
ient, in order to provide the fact. It it be
ever denied but it may be proved by the
admission of the parties, or by their liv
ng together as married persons.
Some think that this is a laxity in the
law that favors fraudulent claims ; and
those who hold this view woultrglaillv see
a law enacted prescribing some form
which should alone constitute a valid le
gal marriage. But to devise this is no
, easy matter, without creating more in
conveniences than is cured. The law now
proposed, does not attempt it. It does not
say that there shall be no legal marriage
withouba license; it only forbids clergy
men and magistrates to perform the mar
riage ceremony without a warrant from
the Clerk of the Orphan's Court. We
see no utility in this legislation, beyond
the record made by it. in this city, there
is au office where people may record a
marriage, if they choose, which few do.
It is not obligatory or necessary fur any
one to do so. It is so easy to prove the
fact in most cases, that few trouble them
selves to perpetuate the testimony to it,
This brings us back to the objection
which some make, that it is too easy to
prove a marriage. There have been some
cases, in this city, in which the allegation
of a marriage has been made after the
death of one of the panics to it, and es
tablished, to the detriment and disap
pointment of expectant heirs. This has
commonly happened iu cases where men
have placed themselves in ambiguous re
lations, and hate left the question wheth
er they were married or not, in doubt, af
ter their decease. Mr. Victor Amarelli.
of this city, lately died, and left his prop
erty to his relations iu Italy. If ho knew
he was married he omitted to mention it
in his wilt But a claimant to his prop
erty came forward, and showed that in
the circle of her acquaintance. he and she
had been known as Mr. and lire. Vincent.
She had passed as his wife, her children
as his children. She also prlaiva_st
mal certificate of their marriage, signed
ow a rxx - vg or tills
city. But as to this, it further appeared I
that the signature was not genuine; it I
and indeed, the whole paper was undoubt
edly in the hand writing of Mr. Vincent
Ameralli himself. Ou this the Court de
cided him to be a married man, and gave
to his widow her rights in his property.
Such cases as this, it is thought by
many, would warrant a change in our
laws, and the requirement of some for
mality as an indespensable requisite for a
marriage. It would, perhaps, be desira
ble, but we confess ourselves wholly un
able to suggest anything that would suit
the spirit of our laws. In some countries,
certain incidents, generally of a relig,lcus
character, have been made indispensable
to the validity of a marriage. In Eng
land, as every novel reader knows, it is
common for young couples to avoid the
rigor of the knglish law by running off
to Gretna Green, a village just across the
border of Scotland, where the law is as
liberal as it is in Pennsylvania. Indeed,
we know of no substantial difference
between We laws of the two countries on
this point. The legislation now proposed,
as to marriages solemnized by persons
authorized to do so, seems to us of no
great importance. It is easy to prove the
marriage of any two persons who lived
together as man and wife. It is not nec
essary to have an official record of their
marriage. We recollect that this was dis
pensed-with in the French courts in a
case in which Mrs. Ridgway, of this city,
of the Willing family, claimed a portion
of the inheritance of a relative in Paris,
the Duchess of Plaisance, There was no
official record of the American marriages
necessary to the title, and they were rec
ognised 'upon such proof as was consis
tent with American law on the subject.
The only real difficulty or hardship that
can arise in the present state of the law is
from fraudulent claims made for property
on a pretense of marriage. But such
claimants must satisfy a court and jury
that there was a contract of marriage, a
consent of the parties. To require some
specific proof, that shall exclude all oth
er, might introduce, as we have said,
greater hardships than it cures. To us,
at least, no means suggests itself of
amending satisfactorily the present con
dition of the law. It is, however, well
worthy of consideration now, when the
subject is before the Legislature, and
some modification of the law of marriage I
seems io be in contemplation.—Age.

" Narrow" Gauge Itallroadx.
A company has been organized In Ohio with
$400,000 capital, to build a three foot gauge rail
road between Piqua and Celina, running through
Miami. Shelby, Anglazinc, and Mercer dimntics.
The right of way Is to be twenty feet, instead
of forty the usual width. The locomotives are
to weigh five tons, instead of thirty, and to be
capable of drawing from ten to twenty loaded
freight cars, each of two and a half tons capaci
ty. Each passenger car is to bold twenty peo-
ple. A road of this gauge is already In opera
tion in Ohio, between Akron and Massilon.
An extensive system of railroads of this width
is also being constructed as feeders to the trunk
lines centering at Toronto, and the projectors of
the Buffalo and Springfield Road are thinking
of adopting the same gauge. It is also being
adopted in Russia.
Coal Land Decision.
The Supreme Court of this State has recently
rendered a decision In winch the principle is at
firmed that the owners of coal and coal land
privileges in lands where the surface is held by
other parties must, in the removal of coal, pro

that sufficient supports must he left to prevent
the surface from sinking or failing into
the excavations. The decision was rendered by
Chief Justice Thompson, in a case tried in Al
legbany county before Judge Hampton, of the
District Court. This is a question of very great
importance in Pennsyh•ania, where such vast
tracts of coal have been disposed of to other
parties by the Owners of the surface. This de

The late decision of the Supreme Court in this
State in reference to the liabilities of the maker
of - a proudssory,noteils ona.toirhich the atten

itllp An :ordinary, promissory note
was filled tip for the, payment of ono hundred
dollars. After the note was Made, the payee, it
is asserted, added the words "and fifty," thus
making it a promissory note for one hundred
and fifty dollars. This note was passed into the
hands of an innocent third party who claimed
the full sum named in the note. On an appeal
to the Supreme Court it was decided that the
drawer was liable,be having Invited the *sue
by his own negligence: It is well known that
there is a blank space on all printed prinnissory
notes where the amount of money to be paid is
written, and that at the end of this blank space
the word "dollars" is printed. The Supreme
Court declared that it was negligence on the
part of the drawer in not drawing a line be
tween the word "hundred" and the printed
word "dollars," and that where such negligence
existed, and there was nothing on the face of
the note that showed any alteration, the drawer
was liable. The Chief Justice added that the
Supreme Court deemed such a rule necessary to
facilitate the circulation of commercial paper
and that at the same time Increase the care of
drawers. The rule is only to apply, however,
where an alteration is not apparent on the face
of the paper.

hear that you are so poor; if you are so hard

63 years and 10 moths. With the exception of
a few mopths, Montrose was his home and life

ger-opalnusTy honest in pal of the business
transactions of life, personally self-sacrificing
and charitable to a fault, he gained many dear
friends, and universal respect. Although never
an "ottlee-seeker," his intelligence, sound judg

into most intimate relations with the Whig and
Republican lenders, and gave weight to his opin

the influence of care, toil, and confidence found
to be misplaced, slowly increased and finally
resulted in parlysis. A cold and congestion of
the lungs finally brought death, death without
terror, death which he welcomed as the mes
senger sent to bear him over Jordan, where
there Is "rest for the weary."
In 18.13, he made "a good profession before
many witnesses" of hope in Christ, and was bap
tized into the Bridgewater Baptist church
With a full consiousness of his approaching end,
he said to an enquiring brother, "1 have always
clung to that hope, and have no occasion to give
it up now. I have no fears." To his daughter
who suggested that he would soon be welcomed
by dear ones who had gone before, he replied,
"Yes, and I shall not have to hunt after God, for
he has hold of my hand now."
The estimation in which he was hell at
Washington, may be judged of by he following
document, beaded in the signing by J. B. Taylor,
the head of his Bureau :
WASHINGTON, MARCH 1, 1871. r
At a meeting of the Clerks in the Statistical
Division of the Office of Internal Revenue held
this day, the following preamble and resolutions
were tmanimonsly adopted :
Whereas we have heard with feelings of deep
emotion of the death of our friend and associate,
Mr. William L. Post, therefore, be it
limolred, That our late Mend had endeared
himself to all of us by his many excellent quail
ties, and that we can never forget how cheer
fully he worked with us even when his health
was fast declining. And be it further.
Resared, That we shall always cherish the
memory of our deceased friend, and that a copy
of the present resolutions, embodying these our
sentiments, shall he handed over to his family as
a token of our sympathy and our respect.

His remains were brought to Montrose, Feb.

the residence of his brother, March Ist. The
spontaneous demonstration made on the occa

and sympaty ; the remarks of the officiating
Clergyman,. he Rev. Mr. Hellings, pastor of the
first Baptist church of Scranton ; the prayer by
the Rev. Mr. Miller, of the Presbyterian church
of this place; the beautiful hymns, "Rest for the
Weary," and "Shining Shore," were all exceed.
Ingly gratifying, and comforting to the mourn
ing relatives, and honoring to the memory of
the departed; gratifying beyond their highest
expectations. Thanks, heartfelt to all who in
any way contributed to this long to bo remem

The Idle gilt of Earth, the hollow praise,
Thelove.th4 livasi not but In empty word,
That amilith Only in the sunshine days,
lltdeth When the sorrow note is heard,
Not" - this,.tha worship of my heart for thee,
Not this the aspiration of my life;
Fate keeps as for a higher destiny,
For life with higher things than love is rife.
Like to the bark upon a storm•toss'd sea,
. With nopelo guide her when the tempest came
So desolate his earth-career will be,
Who lives without a purpose, or an aim,
And, like that bark, unconscious of its fate,
With no controlling hand upon the deck,
The knowledge of his peril comes too late,
And leaves him on the shore of life, a wreck.
I should not love thee if thy woman heart
Cray'd nothing more from me than simple love;
And were that all it could to ;no impart,
It would not thus my higher nature move,
We both may throw a most endearing grace
Around this higher, purer life of ours,
And duty then will wear a sweeter face,
If we do, daily, wreath her brow with flowers.
I owe a double homage unto thee—
The worship of the heart and of the mind ;
The one makes up the life of "Thee and Me."
The other has no "self," but all mankind.
I glory in thy loveliness and grace,
But in thy intellect and soul the more ;
For time will steal the beauties from thy face.
While these have won eternal fame from yore.
lie who, to learn the urposes of life,
Pores o'er the tomes of Wisdom's mighty store,
had better turn unto its daily strife.
The lesson is not found in ancient lore,
I sought myself the problem once to solve;
In vain I searched among the sages' shelves:
The stars, which in their perfect spheres revolve,
Perpetual shine on all except themselves.
Let us, 0 worshipped of my heart ! reelahn
Our thoughts from every selfish thing that mars
The iterfeetness of life for which we aim,
And humbly strive to emulate the stars,
And with this inspiration from the shies,
And study, deep, of Nature's holy laws,
We May, perchance, deserve a hither prize
Than simple famewll the world's applause.
