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 cepted. 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 follows: 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 future. 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 celebrated 7 F commences of the Pr most 'ele2' 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 stern necessity does she gird on her armor.— She will now vindicate the loyalty of her sons —she will now assert the supremacy of the laws. Senators, I again thank you for the" distin guished mark of your favor conferred upon me, and accept the trust you have committed to my care, with the hope that whatever may transpire between this and the next meeting of the Le gislature, all of Pennsylvania's sons will be found true to the government under which we live. Be kind enough to indicate a Senator to ad minister to me the oath required by the Consti tution. The oath was administered by Mr. BLOOD Mr. LAWRENCE offered a resolution ten dering thanks to Speaker PALMER ; agreed to—yeas 30, nays 0_ Mr. BLOOD. a resolution tendering thanks to JOHN P. PENNEY for the able and impar tial manner in which he discharged the duties of Speaker pro tempore ; agreed to—yeas 31, nays 0. Resolutions of thanks to the clerks and cler gymen were also passed. At 12 o'clock the Senate adjourned sine die. paillizioffelalßßlDlV3o.3ol.l4:initllol4 THURSDAY, April 18, 1861. Speaker DAVIS called the House to order at 10 o'clock. Mr. BUTLER, of Carbon, arose to a privi leged question, for the purpose of making a correction in the Legislative Record, in regard to the Philadelphia Arsenal and Gen. Patterson. The remarks attributed to him, (BUTLER, of Carbon.) were made by BUTLER, of Crawford. Two unsuccessful attempts were made to take up the stay law and the "porgie" bills. The usual committees were appointed. THANKS TO THE SPEAKER.

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. 1 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 weekly during the session of the Legislature, and once a week the remainder of the year, for two dollars in ad vance, or three dollars at the eapirationof the year.

NO. 195. 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. asked : "When was it my wife employed one of your men to follow me ?" PARIS, March 20 "You, sir? She never engaged us to follow you!" "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.
