Remarks of Senator Connell.
We direct attention to the remarks of Sen
ator Connell, published in the TELEGILLPH
this afternoon, on the subject of paying the
State interest. The recent indecent haste in
paying the interest on the State debkin gold,
cost the people at least a million of dollars,
and may be charged to the extravagance and
the corruption of the party in the minority
in the Senate. This fact has created much
bitter feeling among the people who are to
bear this burden; and
. in order that the im=
position may not be repeated, it is now pro
pos3d to pay the interest on our State debt
with such funds as the National Government
may provide for the financial operations of the
Senator Connell's speech will be found to be
more than ordinarily able. He discusses the
principles involved in a manner to leave little
room for reply, and certainly presents the inter
ests of the Commonwealth, on this subject, in
a light which most truly reflects its true cred
it and its ancient honor. We earnestley trust
that none of 'our readers will fail to peruse
As ZING CoTroN begins to acknowledge the
impotence of his assumed sway, King Alcohol
seems to be making new pretensions. In
fact, King Alcohol is more of a power than
decent people have been in the habit of ad
mitting., He wields a mighty sceptre.
the other great interests are gracefully yield
ing to the necessity which forces the Govern
ment to look to them for resources, those who
represent the interests of whisky have man
aged to escape contributing their just share to
the support of the Government, and have
already succeeded, thus far, to control the
Congress of the nation. Hence, people begin
to ask whether King Alcohol is to take the
prone of King Cotton. For many years, cot
ton ruled with a rigorous will, in the Execu
tive and legis!ative branches of the Govern
ment. As this potentate yields, King Alcohol
slowlydemonstrates his power, until he has
already shown his ability to rule a Congress.
It is really no credit thus to delay action on
the subject. Alcohol can stand more tax than
any other product in the country. It should
not only be largely taxed for the profits which
are derived from its sale, but it should be
made to swell the resources of the Govern
ment on account of the misery which it pro
duces among the people. Estimates should be
made, as far correct as possible,. for the
actual evil and lois entailed upon business by
intemperance,,,and this the dealers in alcohol
should be compelled to make up• to the Gov
"ernment. 'Every day that Congress deltys
this matter is a loss to the country and a dis
grace to that body.

A DESIRE TO DAMAGE THE. CREDIT OF THE
NATION, seems to have engaged a concen
trated effort on the part of the Copperhead
press of this and other States. It is . impos
sible to open a tory organ, without being
confronted by a column and even a page of
matter on the subject of the financial condi
tion of the Government. This condition is
not fairly discussed' It is not stated that the
resources of jthe country are immense, that
the wants created by the war have created ad
ditional demands for labor—and that even the
necessity for the vast expenditures of the
Government contemplates a future of peace
and prosperity that must make ample amends
for the suffering and the burdens of - the pre
sent. If the tory papers were to , treat the sub
ject in this manner it would inoreaSkihe con
Adeline. of tile people in;the Govern/inn - 5 and
thereby strengthen the influence of those in
authority. Of course such a result would be
at variance with the object of the tones. What
is desired is the complete destruction of. the
nation's credit, and this can only be done, by
continually exaggerating the national debt and
depreciating the nation's currency.. No longer
able to justify rebellion, the ; tbry primis is
compelled to change its tactics in order -to
render the assistance necessary to aid their
traitor allies. Hence their attacks on the
credit and currency of the country.
Removal of the State Capital.
As we predicted it would, the agitation of
the question of removing the State Capital
from Harrisburg to Philadelphia, is beginning
to attract the attention of the people in the
rural districts. Perhaps we had better write
that the proposition of removal is exciting the
scrutiny of the people outside of the metropo
lis who do not regard Philadelphia as entitled
to not only the exclusive attention of the Leg
islature, but to "gobble up" the capital, and
thus become a sort of monopoly of the func
tions of government as well as the mistress of
trade and business of the Commonwealth. The
following ably written communication exhibits
the proposition of removal in a new light. We
'trust that some of our Philadelphia cotempo
raries will reprint it for the benefit of their
Editor of the Telegraph:
In reading a Philadelphia paper (the Daily
News) I see in the proceedings of the city
councils the following, relative to the removal
of the seat of Government from Harrisburg:
g(llir. Lynd, who at that moment returned
from Harrisburg, said that the Legislature was
almost unanimous in favor of the removal."
Mr. Lynd is the President of the Select
Branch of the City Council, and it is aston
ishing that he should make such a report.
Hewould not intentionallypiake afalse state
ment, but surely he was mistaken. It is not
possible that the representatives of over two
millions of the people of this State would
thiow away their interests without even a
consultation. No such charge, I hope, can
be made against any member of our Legisla
ture. If they even cared nothing for the in
terests of their constituents, they would not
wish to bring such an odium upon them
The State Government was once on the bor
der of the New Jersey line, at Philadelphia.
This was as far from a territorial centre as
was possible to 'place it, and the • centre of
population has been steadily and rapidly
moving westward since the seat of govern
ment was removed from Philadelphia.
First, the removal from Philadelphia was
to Lancaster, and I believe in 1812 it was re
moved to Harrisburg, and if ever it is again
moved, it no doubt will be moved further
west. Some good reasons could be given for
such a move toward the centre; but to move
it eastward to the border of New Jersey would
be ridiculous in the extreme, and mat an in
justice to the people of the State that it can
never take place. All reason is against such
If any counties in the State would be bene
fitted by the removal, it would be Philadel
phia, Bucks, Montgomery, Chester and Dela
ware, with a population of 804,782; but some
may claim that Northampton, Lehigh and
Berks would be benefitted. Thisi do not
think correct. Berke county is as near to
Harrisburg as to Philadelphia; but if these
counties would be benefitted, they would all
have a population of 989,257, while the re
mainder or injured part of the State would
have 1,916,958 inhabitants, whose interests
or wishes had never been consulted.
Again, supposing the eight counties named
above to be benefitted by the change, which
1 do not believe, and I have no doubt many,
if not a majority, of the inhabitants of those
counties would, if consulted, oppose such an
unnatural and uncalled for change. Still the
territory embraced would at a glance show
the absurdity of such a move.
The comities injured would have a territory
of square miles of A 0,113.
The counties to be benefitted, a territory of
square miles, 3,837.
Thus, nine hundred and eighty-nine thou
sand inhabitants would govern one million
nine hundred thousand; and three thousand
square miles would govern forty thousand.
I have left the fractions off, as they vary the
calculation but little.
Should 1,916,958 inhabitants march, on an
average, two hundred miles to pay tribute to .
Should a territory of 40,113 square miles be
made bow to 3,837 square miles? If so, then
the Government of Pennsylvania ought to be
taken to Philadelphia; but, I think. I hear the
manly voice of the North, South and West of .
Pennsylvania, shouting their protest against
The people of Pennsylvania rejoice in the
commercial prosperity of her metropolis.
They are justly proud of Philadelphia, and
are willing that she should increase her trade
by all the legitimate means in her power; but
when she attempts to grasp our laws and our
commerce .both, then we say "hands off."
New York, with all her city greatness and. all
her proverbial corruption, has not been able
to take the State Government fromold .
Wilmington, in Delaware State, has not
robbed the little obscure village of Dover. It
is still the seat of government.
The great city of Baltimore bows down to
the law at. Annapolis. Baltimore took the
commerce from Annapolis; but with all her
power and her central position, she could not
move the laws from a little town. . .
New Orleans is not a seat of government:.
Neither Cincinnati nor Chicago have the honor
of bei ng seats of, government, and why? be
cause the States they. are in will it otherwise,
and this ought to satisfy Philadelphia. The
Councils of Philadelphia may, in their official
capacity, legislate on keeping the sewers open,
and streets clear of dead anima s and .gar
bage; this is their natural and legitimate busi
ness; hut they forget their powers when they
attempt to legislate for the State of. Pennsyl
vania. Before they ask the State to legislate
for theurthey must lay down their robes of
office and resolve themselves into private in-.
dividuals, with just as much right as any set
of farmers or mechanics of the same number,
and not a particle more.
