THURSDAY, April 18, 1861
The Senate was called to order at ten o'clock
by the SPEAKER, and the first half hour oc
cupied in withdrawing petitions and papers.
An invitation was received by the Senate, to
attend in the hall of the House at 15 minutes
of 12 o'clock to hear •the Star Spangled Banner
sung by a chorus of amateurs; which was ac
At 11 O'clock Speaker PALMER resigned
his office in a few remarks.
The Senate then, on motion of Mr. LAW
RENCE, proceeded to elect a Speaker for the
recess, with the following result: LEWIS W.
HALL, of Blair county, 25 votes; KENNEDY
L. BLOOD, of Jefferson county, 5 votes.
On taking the chair, Mr. HALL spoke as
SENATORS: Accept my hearty thanks for the
honor you have conferred upon me. Any
feeling of vanity to which I might incline, is
immediately repressed by the reflection, that I
am indebted to this distinction, not to any su
perior merit of my own, but alone to your kind
partiality. It is the measure of no mean am
bition to fill a seat in this Chamber. Ours is
a mighty Commonwealth, a prosperous and
powerful nation within herself.
An older and more experienced head than
mine, Senators, might well feel seriously im
pressed with the weight of responsibility rest
ing upon each one who occupies a position
upon this floor, and at times doubt as to his
duty and his course. It is, therefore, with
great pleasure I receive this mark of your
confidence as a manifestation that my action
and efforts in my Senatorial career, have not
forfeited your esteem and respect.
We are about to separate for our homes, some
of us perhaps to meet no more within these
walls—perhaps, who knows ? no more forever.
We have had sharp debates, strong differences
of opinion, as must, of course, be always the
ease in a body of men representing different
political organizations, and the interests of dif
ferent sections of a great State. But I think
I may safely say the session has been charac
terized by a marked courtesy and decorum, and
we part with no individual animosities, but
with many warm personal attachments, and
pleasant memories to recall, as we meet to talk
over the past where our pathways cross in life's
It would not comport with the occasion, nor
would it accord with my feelings at present, to
enlarge upon the several measures of public
interest which have been adopted during the
session. The legislation of it has passed from
your hands to bejudged of by the future. That
it may add to the welfare of the people and
result in the increased prosperity of our great
of the Pr
Cis theptctath, is, I doubt not, the earnest
a ndlin :e r 6 th of all.
Thee which threatened in our National
horn from, iien we first assembled has since then
spread over the whole heavens, dark and low
ering. The muttering thunder of civil war has
been re-echoed from the once sunny South.—
One dark gloomy thought seems to pervade all
minds and absorb all interest. The storm has
broken upon us. It is idle now to indulge in
words or vain lamentations over a fact—a
startling fact which must be looked in the
face ; which must be met by every law-abiding
and patriotic citizen of all the States, not with
wavering counsels, but with the spirit and de
termination of men. It is too true that a rev
olution has been inaugurated by seven of the
States of this Union, ambitnotts to divide it
into rival confederacies. I shall not dwell on
the facts, nor allude to the alledged causes
that impelled these rebellious States to pursue
the course they have. Suffice it to say—the
Federal Government has long foreborne toward
them, striving by every possible means at all
consistent with our honor, to avoid a resort to
arms. This forbearance has only tended to in
crease the arrogance and exorbitance of their
demands, and to give impunity to their crimes.
They have lurked in the high places and fast
nesses of the Government they were sworn to
uphold and defend, in order to betray it into
the hands of its enemies. The Federal autho
rities have been driven to arms in self defence.
In view of these extraordinary events, it
becomes every loyal State to defend and assist
the National Government to the extent of its
power. The war has begun. The rebels are
the assailants. On their heads be the dire
consequences. The voice of Pennsylvania has
ever been for peace. Only when driven by

PLANTING AND CULTIVATION OF THE
Correspondence of the N. Y. Evening Post
What the French call "the planting and cul
tivation of the sea," and the English, less am
bitious in speech, would be content to call "the
artificial raising of fish," is carried on in France
with a perseverance and success which promise
to yield very valuable results, and at no dis
tant date. The various operations of modern
pisciculture, due to the inventive genius of the
bumble fisherman Remy, and zealously pro
moted by the labors of the indefatigable M.
Jacques Coste, under the joint auspices of the
Imperial Government, and of the Society of
Acelimition, are rapidly reduced to a system at
once easy of application, and of almost certain
success, and destined, apparently to render the
raising of fish as common as that of kine, sheep,
wheat and potatoes.
Rivers, lakes and ponds exhausted by the
improvident greed of fishermen, and the de
struction of the young fry, are stocked from the
great raising establishments founded in various
departments, and the coast of the Channel, the
Atlantic and the Mediterranean are converted
into oyster grounds, which threaten, if their
tenants continue to multiply as rapidly as they
are now doing, to ensure a surfeit of that
dainty for the entire population of France.
The first of the great artificial oyster beds
was undertaken by M. Coste, in 1857, in the
bay of St. Brienne, on the northeast coast of
Britanny. The water is there exceedingly
deep. and the violence of wind and weather
added greatly to the difficulties of this novel
attempt. But all these obstacles were success
fully overcome. The entire surface of the bot
tom of the bay forming the piscicultural farm,
is covered with fasoines, composed of branches
of trees strongly lashed together and held down
by heavy stones. Between these faseines the
bed of the sea is paved with oyster and muscle
shells, pieces of rock, tiles, fragments of pot-
Two Wnswt.y will be published as heretofore, semi

Connected with this establishment is an extensive
JOB OFFICE, containing a variety of plain and fancy
type, unequalled by any establishment in the interior of
the State, for which the patronage of the pablit is so
The success of the experiment at St. Brienne
has led to the formation of similar "fish-farms"
'at Archachon, the Ile tie Re, and in the road
stead of Toulon, all of which are now cultivated
with unremitting care, and promise, according
to the reports of the periodic inspections to
which they are subjected by the agents of the
Government and by those of the Society of
Acclimation, to inaugurate a new era in the
annals of fish markets, and to create a new and
inexhaustible source of national wealth.
The last investigations into the state of the
oyster-beds of St. Brienne, carried on by mem
bers of the Council General of the department
of the Cotes du Nord, under the direction of
the captains of the Chamois, Pluvier and Eveil
of the French navy, placed by the government
at the disposition of the commissioners charged
to carry on the work of inspection, have given
results that have far surpassed the most san
guine expectations of the advocates of the new
system. Every time the drag was applied it
brought up over two thousand oysters, and each
of three fascines of row No. 10, sunk in 1859,
and just brought up for examination, was found
to contain twenty thousand young oysters, from
three to five centimetres in diameter. These
fascines, exhibited in various towns of Britrtny,
created universal amazement, and will proba
bly lead to the establishment of many new beds.
They were subsequently brought to Paris for
the Emperor's inspection, and lastly were sub
mitted to the Academy of Sciences, creating
there the same feeling of admiration and as
tonishment which they had excited among the
simple Breton peasants.
Paris abounds in mysterious trades. Some
years ago, M. Privat d' Anglemont, a sort of
French Edgar Poe, who lived the same life and.
died in the same melancholy manner as his
American prototype, published a series of in
teresting papers, under the title of "Unknown
Professions." Among these sketches were some
very singular types, which probably even Eu
gene Sue, with all his experience of low life in
Paris, had never discovered. But, Privat d'
Anglemont by no means exposed all the occult
trades of the French metropolis, and one in
particular, which he passed over, might have
formed a prolific theme for his entertaining
pen. I refer to the personage known as the
" conjugal spy." Although this individual.
who is a real character, and is generally called.
the " Yidocq of the jealous," is quite above at
tending to business himself, he has organized a
complete establishment of surveilance, to which
application may be made and where assistance
may be secured (for cash,) without the slightest
difficulty. It is even possible to arrange mat
ters by the month, quarter, or year—for all the
world as if you were subscribing for a news
paper, except that it is somewhat more expen
sive. The price of an annual subscription is
three thousand francs, or $6OO. For this sum,
a jealous husband is kept advised of every step
Madame takes outside the conjugal domicile,
during an entire twelve month, day and night.
Nor has -Madame any right to complain, for
she enjoys precisely the same privilege, and.
may learn all her husband's movements as if
she never left his side. However, except in
rare instances, the yearly plan is not patron
ized. Suspicion is ordinarily confirmed or
removed, in a very brief period, and afe w days
are generally sufficient. In these cases, the
charge is twenty francs per diem. •
Not long ago, a certain Parisian Othello, of
an uncommonly doting species, all at once tor
mented himself with a notion that Mrs. Othello
held clandestine meetings with Captait Casio,
of the Grenadiers, who was her own cousin to
boot. Off posted Mr. 0. to the ct iel of the
conjugal spy establishment, and r mplo ied an
expert " shadow" to keep an eye up.►a Mrs.
o.'s promenades. The surveilltnoe Lasted a
week. It might have gone on for a longor pe
riod, but the spy rendered so good an account
of the lady he was employed to watch, that, at
the end of eight days, her worthy husband
began to suspect that he had made an ass of
himself and was spending twenty francs a day
for nothing. He consequently informed Vi
docq that he was quite satisfied, and called for
his bill. A bit of paper was forthwith presen
ted to him, upon which his indebtedness was
set down at 400 francs.
" Four hundred francs !" exclaimed the good
man. " There is a mistime in this ! Our en
gagement has extended over a period of eight
days only, and, at twenty francs a day, the
amount is one hundred and sixty francs."
"Very true, sir," replied the other • " but I
thought I could venture to include Madame's
bill in yours."
" What ! You don't mean to say my wife
owes you anything 9"
"Yes sir ; twelve days following and watch
ing, at ()treaty francs, two hundred and forty
francs, which, added to your hundred and
sixty, makes the four hundred."
The excellent husband was not displeased at
this. Oh! far from it. So, his wife had set a
watch over him ! It became perfectly evident
that she must be jealous of him, and women
are not jealous of men they do not love. He
joyfully paid the money, took a receipt, and
was about leaving the " office," when, struck
with a sudden idea, he turned to Vidocq and.
"When was it my wife employed one of your
men to follow me ?"
PARIS, March 20
"You, sir? She never engaged us to follow
"Then what the d-1 is the meaning of these
two hundred and forty francs—hey ?"
"Why, sir, some days before you came to
us, to have Madame watched, Madame em
ployed us to look after Captain Cassio, of the
Grenadiers. And I'm sorry to say, sir, the
reports we have made to Madame have not
been so satisfactory as was desirable. The
Captain is a hard case, sir, a very hard case,
and he has been going on with Ma'mselle
Clementine, of the Opera, in a manner most
shocking to our feelings as conjugal agents."
Of course, Othello left, more or less pulver
ized by this " professional" revelation.
As a carpenter was shingling a house in Os
wego, lately, a boy fired a gun at a pigeon
above him. True to his aim, the bird fell, and
in its descent hit the man of improvement a
smart rap on the back of the neck. From the
stroke following the reports° quickly, he almost
guessed he was a “gone coon ;" but examining
his hand, which he had instinctively thrown
back, and seeing it crimsoned with the pigeon's
blood, he felt there could be no doubt about it,
and had only the power to bawl out, “I'm shot
I'm shot!" when he fell to the bottom of his
ladder. The laughter, however, of some of
the bystanders, brought him to his senses, and
happening to spy the dead bird, he instantly
thrust it into his pocket by way of recompense
for wounded honor.
During Mr. Charles Dickens' last English.
provincial tour it is slated that he cleared up
wards of £20,000, after paying all expenses.
