On our first page wo to day publish Dr.
Hill's speech on the commutation of tho
Tonnago Tax on the Pennsylvania Rail
road, which has been passed by our Stato
Ltgislaturo, Laving last week given his
speech on the bill for the relief of the Sun
bury and Erie Railroad, lloth arc swin
dles of tho first water, and outrages upon
tho taxpayers of tho State. In tho first
place, the bill for tho commutation of tho
Tonnago Tax is a deception and n cheat.
The Pennsylvania Railroad Company pur-
chased tho Main Lino for $7,000,000.
, The interest on this sum would be 8450,.
.000 annually. Tho tonnace tax now
amounts to nearly 8300,000 per annum.

inH 1 . it.. , I 1 1 .
iug annually to tho company, (allowing
the tonnage tax to be the sum named.)
8280,000 or about $8,410,000, in that pe
riod of timo,a sum that would rcduco ono
fourth of the entire State debt. Tho bill
for tho relief of the Sunbury and Erio
Railroad company is also a stupendous
swindle. When tho Stato disposed of the
Delaware Division and North Branch Ca
nals to this Company in 1858, for the sum
of $3,500,00, she took a mortgage on the
Railroad for this sum. Now tho Compa
ny comes and asks that tho State shall can
cel this first mortgage in order that thoy
can borrow 85,030,000 which amount thoy
allego to bo necessary to complete their
road. To raiso and secure this sum the
Company proposes to givo a first mortgage
on tho whole road to tho parties advancing
the monay,the Stato to take a swifraort
gago for its $3,500,000. In other words
tho Stale shall exchange its first mortgage
for a second morlgnge, and in event of the
Company failing, tho Commonwealth will
como out at tho littlo end of the horn, and
get nothing. Her 83,500,000 will be
sunk. Allentown Demoirat.
Tho Wyoming Intelligencer says :
The Sunbury and Erio Rail Road bill
and the bill commuting tho tonnago tax,
have passed both Houses of our Lceisla
turo, thus taking 810,000,000 from our
Stato Treasury at one grap. Wo admit
that the passage of thoso bills was only
question of lime, for there has not been a
Legislature during the past thirty years,
and probably not sines the adoption of the
Constitution, that could not have been
.bnnglit, iuiiy and breeches, Governor a
all with one quarter that sum. But while
admitting that, we sfty'tolIioso' Itepretcn
tatircs and Senators who supported those
measures, you must look your constituents,
full in tho faco upon tho questions idrolvcd
in them. Tho irrcsistablo and legitimate
conclusion is, that every one of you whose
constituents are not contiguous to tho Rail
roads named in those bills, havo sold your
intognty and tho interests of the Common
wealth for money or Railroad bonds. The
people aro ready and willing to be con
vinced that such conclusion is uujut, but
unless tliey aro so convinced, you may
congratulate yourselves upon being per
mitted, in the future, to enjoy your "thii-
tg pieces of silver" at home, in the bosom
of your families, with the gratifying reflcc
tion, that you "tciilicd well for your coun
try," but acted better for yourselves.
Hie i.aston Argus, says : In order
that our readers may properly understand
the nature of these bills, wo will again stato
their character. When the Pennsylvania
Central Railroad Company asked tho Leg
islature of our Stato for a charter, it was
granted subject to the payment of a tax to
tho Stato on the freight that should pass
over the road. This tax has been called
"the tonago tax" aud amounted to nearly
SGO,000 a year. When the Pennsylvania
Janal was sold to this Company in 1858,
it was given to them at half its real -value
on account of the company being subject
to this tax. This amount went far toward
paying the annual interest on our State
debt. The company paid it one year and
then refused paying it any longer, alleging
that it was unconstitutional. The State
authorities brought suit against the com
pany and tho Supreme Court declared that
dt was oonstiutional. Tho Company next
Applied to the Legislature to be released
tlJs tax and it was well known a year ago
ttiat an attempt would bo made this winter
to have a bill for that purpose forced
through tho Legislature. Some of tho
professional borers who hung a round
Harrisburg in tho employ of this company,
openly boasted that they had $200,000
ready to apply to "pushing it through"
and it was through tho influence of
company that Hknry D. Fos
TER was defenleJ fnr ,..,.. I...
faU( beeause ho refused to pledgo himself
t0 tign a bill fBTOraWe to tho wishes of the
company. Well, the bill has been brought
forward and by the aid of goblen screws
been pushed through the lower Houso and
we toko it for granted it will pass the Sen-
JnOOO to 810.000 a roar.
The StiKhuRY And Erie Bill
i lio twin brothers to tbts bin was tne
act to relievo tho Sunbury and Erio Rail
road Company. Whon tho State disposed
of tho Delawaro Divlson and North Branch
Canals to this Company in 1858, for tho
sum of 83,500,000, slit took a mortgago on
tho Railroad for this sum. Now tho com
pany comes and asks that the Stato shall
cancel this first mortage, in ordor that
they can borrow $5,000,000, which amount
they allego to bo necessary to coinplct
llicro road. To raiso and sccuro this sum
tho Company proposes to givo a fist mor
tgage on tho wholo road to the parties ad
vancing tho money, the State to tnko i
second mortgago for its 83,000,000. In
other words, the State shall exchange its
first mortage for a second mortgage, and
in tho event of tho Company failing, tho
Commonwoltli will como out at the little
end of the horu; and got nothing. Her
S3,C00,0O0 will bo sunk, as we predicted
would be the case in 1853.
Tho Easton Scntiucl Saym Tho first
of these bills, tho Sunbury nnd Erie, we
referred to somewhat at length, two weeks
since, hence it is only necessary to say
now that it is a schemo to defraud the
State out of $3,500,000, which this Com
pany promised to pay tho State for her
canals, which were sold to this Company
in 1857. This is to lo accomplished in
this wise : Tho bill which hasju;t passed
tho House caucelstho first mortgago bonds
now held by the State on the Sunbury
and Frie Railroad, and creates in lieu
thereof a new morlgage, of $5,000,000, to
bo a first motgago for 91 ,000,000, which
already binds a part of the road and n fur
thor preferring of $000,000 to contractor, J
tho State-is to. have a mortgago for her
c'taim , which, however, is not to bear inter
est until 1572. When it is taken into
consideration that this Company havo al
ready used up nearly $11,000,000, not on
the construction of the road, for tho whole
length thereof from Sunbury to Erie could
have been constructed for that amount, but
foo'ishly squandered n large portion of it
away, you may.casily conjecture how much
the State ill ever realize on her invest
mcnt. Wo vcuture tho prediction that
j long beforotho time arrives when tha State
is to receive interest on her claim, the
road will be sold under a foreclosure of
mortgage, by tho first bond holders, as
over one hundred miles of the road, (which
will take two years to complete,) is yet to
bo constructed, aud every cent of the Stato'
investment will be sunk, and the Treasury
defrauded out of just $-'1,500,000 and in
terest. So much for that switidl"-
M--A.-Mnnnirrepcaliug tho Tonn;
'fas on the Pennsylvania Railroad. To
properly understand this matter it may bs
necessary to state that at tho time the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company was
chartered they agreed to pay tho Stato a
tax of three mills per ton, on all freight
carried over the road in consideration for
tho prhilogcs granted them. This tax,
sinco the Columbia Railroad and tho Main
Line of the State Canals fram Columbia
to Pittsburg, were sold to this Company
for a mere nominal sum, which was doni
in 1855, has become a sourco of great
revenue to tho State, amounting now to an
annual sura of about 300,000. The Com
pany have refused to pay this tax, since
1858. Judgment has been obtained a-
gainst them for about 8700,000, and as
the Supreme Court, to which tho case was
appealed havo decided against the Com-
pany, this amount would havo shortly to
havo been paid into tho Stato Treasury.
We'should havo said that a clause was
attached to the bill passed in 1855, undVr
which the Main Line was sold, repealing
this Tonnage Tax bill, but its constitution
ality was contested by Col. HuNitr S,
Mott, of Piko county, a bond holder, and
tho repealing clauso was declared by tho
Supreme Court to bo unconstitutional.
The bill which passed the Houso on Sat
urday not only repeals the Tonnago Tax
law, so far as it relates to tho Pennsylva
nia Railroad, but declares that tho Stato
thall not levy or collect a tonnago tax on
any Railtotul at Canal tliat. isnowbxilt
or that may hereafter be constmctd, and
that tho 8700,000 now owing tho State by
tho Pennsylvania Railroad Company as a
tax on tonnage which they have collected
sinco 1853, and which they havo refused
to pay over, shall not be paid to the State,
but that tho said Pennsylvania Railroad-
Company may invest it in tho bonds of
about a dozen unfinished littlo railroads,
which are branches of the said Company's
