Thursday Afternoon, May 16,1861
The extra session of the Legislature termi
nated to-day at noon, after fifteen dile pro
ceedings. The session was a very important
one, and the legislation which has now passed
Into laws has already been noticed in our col
umns, and has also been endorsed by our co
temporaries of all parties throughout the State.
We cannot permit the adjournment to pass
without noticing the good opinions which were
expressed for the Speaker of the• Senate, Hon.
Louis W. Hall. During the short time he has
presided, he made for himself a reputation 9f
which older parliamentarians might well be
proud, and which will go far to re-instate him
iet`the chair at the next session of the Senate.
Speaker Davis of the House, also carries home
with him the good opinions and esteem of the
members of the House, as well for his impar
tiality as a presiding officer, as for his courte
ous demeanor as a man.
A Goon APPOINTINNT. —We chronicle to-day,
with more than ordinary pleasure, the appoint
ment of Jacob Knabb, Esq., as Postmaster of
the city of Reading. Many of our citizens will
recognize Mr. Knabb as a former resident of
Harrisburg, and an active participant in the
exciting political contest of 1844. He will be
tainentbered in that campaign in the capacity
of assistant editor of the Clay Bugle, whose
music echoed in those days the glorious senti
ments of gallant "Harry of the West 1" Mr.
Knabb left Harrisburg for Beading shortly after
the campaign of 1844, and has ever since re
aided in that city, publishing and editing the

of War, to let the Regiments now in the service
of the State, know that it is " prefered to have
all the Regiments already mustered into service
for three months, which are not actually sent
forward, re-mustered into service for three
years or dui ing the war, should they be willing
to do so." 1 therefore deem it proper to direct
that you immediately ascertain the preference
of your Regiment upon this question, and com
municate the result forthwith to me.
Those who do not desire to re-enlist for this
additional period, can be formed into Regi
ments, or have such arrangements made as to
enable them to retire with honor, in accordance
with their enlistment.
I cannot refrain from saying that it would
afford me pleasure, to see the regiments so
promptly and patriotically offered to the State,
gives this additional and more enduring evi
dence of continued devotion to their country.

Gov. A. G. CURTIN : Dear Sir:—Enclosed
herewith you will find the plan for the organi
zation of the volunteers for three years service.
Ten regiments are assigned to Pennsylvania,
making, in addition to the thirteen regiments
of three mouths militia, already called for,
making twenty-three regiments. It is impor
tant to reduce rather than enlarge this num
ber, and in no event to exceed it. Let me
earnestly recommend to you, therefore to call
for no mote than twenty-three regiments of
which only ten are to serve during the war, and
if more are already called for, to reduce the
number by discharge. In making up the quota
of three years men, you will please act in con
cert with Lieut. Col. Andrew Porter, who will
represent this Department, and so far as possi
ble make it up by taking in preference, regi
ments already offered for three months, having
of course due regard to a fair distribution of
the forces among the different sections of the
State. If it should be agreeable to your Excel
lency, it would be especially gratifying to this
Department to have some of those regiments
offered for three years service from Allegheny
and other westemcounties, including the "wild

It is proper that I should, remark in this con

nor have I any power to change the terms of
their service, nor to disband them, or in any
