red Millions of capital are.invested in this
region hi ale coal business, and thous_
and °flow people look to that business for
daily 'employment. This leading depart:
meat of our industry, with many. others
of but little less public consequence, is
directly assailed by the selfish policy of a
neighboring corporation, whichis about
to barricade against us our lawful high
to distant markets. Is' not the
matter worth the public time and -atten
tion f It is to be considered by to-day's
meeting, and every man who knows his
omit public duty will be there, to take
part iri the proceedings.
It has been ascertained that the' large
tracts of swamp-land; in Crawford county,
which are known as the:Conneaut and
Pymatuning marshes, contain respective
ly, six and nine thousand acres of area,.
all. ..of which may be subdued, tor the
most valuable uses - of ..cultivation,_ with a
moderate expense for drainage. A pa r .
tial examination of their topography has
been made by Surveyor General Camp
new, under the terms of a resolution of
1 the last Legislature. He reporte that the'
1 Conneaut marsh may be (Trained at an
expenditure of not over $45,000, or at an
average cost'of say $9 per acre, and the'
Pymatuning at a cost of $30,000, or not
over $4 per acre.
It is apparent that the Comin i onwMilth
is not called upon to engage in the work
of draining and subduing these fans at
publicexpense. There is • considerable
force lathe Surveyor ' , General's moss
tion, that a coMprekensive and systernage
survey should be undertaken, in the pub
lic behalf, of the topography of all that
remarkable 'district which includes , the
"divide," on the crest of the two water;
sheds which send their flow to the Lakes
on one side and to the Ohio Valley on the
Other. The peculiar feature of this di
viding ridge is that it is no ridge, at all
'palpable to the unscientific eye, but rather
a high plateau; of great but varying
ividtk and so nearly level that its Waters
appear to be everywhere stagnant,—ex
cept at the extreme brink where they ap
pear to assume sluggishly their doubtfal
course Of escape. There must be one
hundred thousand &area, or more, of this
fen-district within the limits of the State
along that watershed, and its • proper
drainage undoubtedly presents .a,
question of such great ' irisportencq
as to justify the interposition of the
State authorities, not for the purpose of
undertaking the work of drainage itself,
but of supplying to the resident popula
tion the needful scientific data, to guide
private operations in the direction of an
uniform and practical system. Properly
surveyed by a topographical corps, the
levela and 'distances regularly connected,

relations of the fenny distritt thereto, be

some degree of general precision,, a ays

one day came a keen speculator,with
his surveying instruments. - He worked
/ quietly, but to his ' purpose. The
evels were taken, courses and distances
rtmout, the valueless swamp changed own
en3hip, and within a few years, and at a
comparatively trifling cost, ,thousands of
acres of inexhaustibly f l ertile land re
warded his sagacity, nerve, and capital.
'The - great marshes of the Crawford '
county water-shed will be•reclaimed in
the same way, and with equal profit to
the individuals or . companies who may
undertake the work. This will be done,
as soon as the speculation shall justify
them in undertaking it. If the • State
shall' contribute to the settlement of the
requisite scientific .data, individual enter.
prise will need nothing more, to enlist it
in a work which will give rich returns to
capital, and a vast addition to the material
wealth Of that section of Pennsylvania.
With one exception, all the leading
European powers, with many of the in
ferior governMents, have, recognized and
adopted the American view of the citi
zen's right of expatriation. It is only in
France that the old feudal doctrine of
"once a vassal, always a subject" is to
day maintained by State-policy. Com
mencing among the lesser German poten
tates, the new expression of the personal
rights of man has been successively re
cognized by Austria, and Prussia* and the
Northern Powers, and, last, came Great'
Britain to surrender a principle which
she has maintained in all the centuries.
With the single exception named, the
Emmaus who migrates to the Great Re
public is forevermore sanctioned; under
thelaws of his birth-place, is putting off
the nationality of his origin, and in put
ting on, with its obligations, every privi-
lege, at home or abroad, of American
The treatY, which incorporates this
American principle with the international
law of the United States and Great
Britain, was ratified by Our Senate, a day
or two since. The American press have
heen so
Intensely engrosied - by the tem
porary interest involved in the question
of ttis4, s Alattsma claims, as to pay bit
little heed to this very important matter
of the right of expatriation. But, now
that the former topic has been removed
from current discussions, we shall look
fora general and just recognition, of the
largeprogress by which these ilaturaliza-
Aion-agreements have advanced through
out the world the cosmopolitan vindica
tion of the liberty of man. French feu -
aalism cannot long resist the concurrent
sentiment of Christendom, and we are safe
to anticipate a very early day. when it
may be said, of every oivilized people on
this planet, that the republican liberty of
America—a liberty absolute under the
law, against all foreign sovereignties ELI
powers—awaits the self-Investiture of
their expatriated citizens. Touching
their feet upon our coasts, invoking the
shield of our laws and the future protec
tion of the American flag, the entire
Christian world may surrender its hun
dreds of niillions of people to the poses
sion of this liberty, for themselves and for
their children in all the coining genens
It is not mere!) , that the treaty-recogni
tion of thilriqht of e.iiiatriation prcimotes
the personal security of the immigrant
_temporarily revisiting his native land.
We gikin vastly more than that. The
traditional policy of a thousand years has
been blotted out from European law; the
American doctrine of personal liberty is
now sanctioned in their jurisprudence,
and must become familiar as a household
word to all those populations. They
have known that our freedom was that
,freedom which their own laws have never
'grouted to them; thfrowill now learn
that this freedom is as ever within their
reach, and that; once acquired, it is forever
Mier to be respected as inviolate by all
the laws of Europe. Thus the American
doctrine la incorporated into the jurispru
dence of despotism, and its' living princi
ple of human progress blooms, and
promises a richer maturity, upon every
plane of European society. •

It must be conceded that this volume
of po ' is far above the average'Of moat
of the:
poetry recently published. Mr.
Stead is a true poet, and is;justly
awarded a high place among the lyric
poets of th!s country. The leading poem
is a story of human passion, somewhat
mediaeval in theme. The incident is con
fined to no age or land, but is such as
may and must happen in all. It depicts
the conduct of a prince of old, who was
regarded in the eyes of his wife as being
blameless, while his course of life was
one deserving great blame. Notvrith-
standing the Blameless. Prince has fallen,
the world still pays him homage as one
truly blameless. Passages of great beauty
abound throughout the poem. The
minor poems are many of them dainty
bits of versification. They are gekerally
short, and comprise a variety of topics.

facts, in which eminent personages, Vol

attractive words, surd with much delicacy.

must be three hundred years old, but it is
in wonderildly good preservation. Relic
No. 2 is a purse the work of Queen
Mary's own hands,) beautifully wrought
with a crown, scepter and sword in gold,
with the words "God Save &rig James."
Relic No. 8 is a. piece of unleavened
bread, to which no authentic history is
attached, but traditionally understood ' to
have been a fragment of what Queen
Mary had used when participating in the
most solemn rite of her 'religion. There
is also a lock of Mary's hair, which is or

TER JIIDICIABY BILL just passed by
Congres provides that the supreme court
of the United States shall consist of the
chief justice and eight associate justices,
and sx of whom shall constitute a quo:-
rum. For each of the nine circuits
circuit judge is to be appointed, whose
jurisdiction therein shall be the same as
that of the justice of the supreme court
allotted thereto. The circuit judges are
to receive, $5,000 a year salary, each, and
have power to appoinkthe clerks of the
circuit courts, district judges appointing
the clerks of their own courts. The chie€
justice and each justice of the supreme
court must attend at least one term of the
circuit court in each district of his circuit
at least once In two years. Any judge
of any court of the United States who
shall have held his commission ten years
and arrived at ,the age of seventy years
may resign his office and retire upon full
salary. It seems to us that the provisions
of thiebill are wise and just, and we
presume it will receive the signasture of
the president.

Tim New York Tribune says: "What
a curious book might be written on the
history of suicides The ingenuity, of
distorted minds in discovering strange
modes of death Seems inexhaustible. An
English carpenter a few years ago
turned his mechanical skill to account is
constriicting a guillotine for his own de. •
capitation. A New . York merchant very
recently hanged himself, and after put

most hi:irrible "case of 'suicide, however,

can of paraffin oil over his person and
then set himself on fire." -
