TliC CHILD i.Ntf THE FLOWESS.
BT MISS H. F. GOULD.
Radiant with his spirit's light.
Was the little, beauteous child ;
Sporting round a lountain bright
Playing through the flowrets wild.
Wfcere they grew he lightly stepped,
Cautious not a leat to crush;
Then, about the fount he leaped,
Shoatiug at its merry gush.
While the sparkling waters swelled,
Laughing, as they bubDled up;
la his tilly hands he held,
Closely clasped, a tiuy cup.
Now he put it forth to fill,
Ttieu ha bore it lo the flowers,
Through his fiugers theie to spill
. What it held, in aiimmic shower's.
'Open, prstty buds," said he,
k Opeu to the air and uo,
So to-tnorrow 1 may see,
What my ram to day has done.
Yes, you wilt, you will, I know,
For the drink 1 give you now,
Burst your little cups and blow
VVbeu I'm gone and can't tell how,
"Oh, 1 wih I could but see
How God's finger touches yoo,
Wheu your sides unclasp, and tree
Let your leaves aud odors through.
"I would watch you all the uight
Nor in darkness be atraid,
Only once to see aright
How- a beauteous flower is made.
"Now remember, I shall come
lu the morning Irom my bed,
Here lo raid among you some
With your brightest colors spread !
To bis buds he hastened oat
At the dewy morning hoar
Crying, with a joyous shout,

Precious mast the ready faitn,

EVENING SESSION: The House re-as-eeableJ
at7j o'clock, p. m.
Mr. ARMSTRONG. I ask leave to ofier
a resolution at ibis time.
This was to take op the apportionment
Bill, which was ran through by the mon
grel party as a perfect gerrymand, and by
which means they disfranchised the democ
racy of the State, for the next ten years in
dividing the Slate into Congressional dis
tricts. Columbia, Montour, Wyoming and
Sal'ir&n counties were bitched on to Brad
ford, to be swamped by the '"Egyptians,"
taking good; care first lo knock of! old
Democratic Northumberland. The remon
strances and appeals of the Members from
-Colombia, Wyoming and Northumberland,
in defence of the rights 7 of their constitu
ents, were disregarded by the majority in
the Haila of the House.

ready provided for by the said act to which
this is a supplement.
The recon J section was read as follows:
Sec. 2. That the said company shall have

the sum of six hundred thousand dollars,
which shall be represented by sixty thou
sand shares, and the par price of each share
shall be fixed at ten dollars; and the com

by unking out in the fourth and fifth lines
the following wordw: "and the company be

Mr. TATE, (Columbia ) concurred with
the gentleman from Northnmberland. The
interest of his constituents should be pro
tected. He urged the adoptiou of the amend
Mr. FREELAND, (Dauphin) I hope this
amendment will not be adopted.
Mr. BROWN, Northumberland, The
Hou.be this morning, by a unanimous vote,
parsed a joint resolution requiring the At
torney General to institute proceedings
against the Delaware and Hudson canal
company and the Pennsylvania coal com
pany tor the purpose of repealing their
charter or annulling the contract giving
them the right to mine coal. 1 have in my
dek a several petitions signed by all the
operators in ray county and a number of
other citizens protesting against giving tran
sportation companies the right to mine
coal. The allegation is that the operations
ot these two companies tend to break up
all private operators, from the fact that the
latter are not able to get their coal to mar
ket at the same rate as those transporting
companies, and thus cannot- compete with
those companies in the market. No trans
porting company should have mining priv
ileges; and I think that this railroad com
pany should not have the privileges asked
for in this cae.
Mr. RUSSEL, Lnzeme, I hope this
amendment will. My own district at this
time is suffering terribly from the opera
tions of tbee transporting companies in
mining coal. Their operations are destruc
tive to the whole coal interest. Had it not
been that our coal operators succeeded in
obtaining a redaction of freights, oar coal
works would have been entirely stopped
by the operations of these transporting
companies in mining coal. Now, 1 hope
that the House will not inflict on the coun
that will add to the depression which we
are now suffering.
Mr. RITTER, Snjder, 1 hope, Mr.
Speaker, that the tune has passed for the
Pennsylvania Legislature to allow any for
eign transportation company to mine coal
in this State. We have alreadj reeu enocgh
of the evil effects of snch operations whhir.
this commonwealth. 1 dope the House will
discountenance and defeat any attempt to
allow any foreign corporation to mine coal
in this commonwealth. The coal interests
in this State are suffering now; and I hope
they will not be made to suffer still more.
Mr. FREELAND, Dauphin ) the gentle
man from Snyder, Mr. Ritter, is mistaken.
This is not a foreign company; it ia a com
pany of our own Slate and onr own town.
I hope that the gentleman will not inter
fere in this matter.
Mr. RITTER,. Snyder, Whether it is a

allowed to mine coal. Mr. BROWN, Northamberland. In reply
Mr. FREELAND, Dauphin, This is not to the gentleman from Dauphin I will say
he case of a company now having a road ! that in the Senate, this bill was in charge
and desiring to have the privilege of mining
coal. The company now have no road, but
they want the privilege of making a road
for the purpose of transporting their coal.
The road Is not now in existence; but it is
to be put into operation provided we get
Mr. RUSSEL, of Luzerne, supported tbs
Mr. FREELAND. It is not intended that
this company shall carry any coal whatever.
The Shamokin Valley road carries the coal
Thi bill merely contemplates mining priv
ileges. Ths gentlemen mistake the pur
pose of the bill.
Mr. ROWLAND. I hope that this amend
ment will be adepted. Only this morning
the House almost unanimously showed
their disposition to interfere with rights
that had already been granted to certain
corporations. This bill involves the grant
ing of the same rights, and I hope that the
House will not stultify itself by giving in
the evening privileges to one company it
has refused in the morning to another.
Mr. RUSSEL. If the gentleman from
Dauphin, Mr. Freeland, will assure me that
this road is merely a road of three or four
miles to ccanect with another,! will with
draw my objection.
Mr. BROWN, North'd, I have been en
deavoring to obtain the act of 1359, in re
lation to this company. I hare not been
able to find the act; but I have understood j
f rota two Senators that tbs eel of 1659 gara
. the company the right to build a road 2)
miles in length; and those Senators stale 1
that tf they bad known that this bill con
tained the clause giving the company ths
right to mine coal, they would have op ;
posed the bill in the Senate. Both thesj
gentlemen desired me either to have tha
companies the right to mine coal I do
protest therefore, against granting to th a
corporation the privilege of mining coal.
Mr. RUSSEL. I hope that this bill, with
the amendment, will be postponed.

The yeas and nays were required by Mr.
Brown, of Northumberland, and Mr. Cahl

The motion was not agreep to.
The third section was read and agreed to

shall at any time find it their advantage to
sell the whole of their lands, and all tbeir
personal property they shall be at libertj to
do so, which shall be determined on by
such vote of the stockholders, and sich
sale, distribution and eli lenient be made

this is a supplement.

to amend by inserting the following ai an
That the stockholders of said compiny
shall be privately and individually liablo in
their individnal capacities for all debt! to
mechanics and laborers, to be sned lor tod
recovered as provided in the twelfth, thir
teenth and fourteenth sections of the aci in

company, approved April I5th, A. D. H53.
- Mr. FREELAND. I do not thank the
gentleman far his courtesy in offering this
amendment, although I shall not opposa it.
The amendment was agreed to.
Mr. FREELAND moved to npend the
rales in order to read the bill a third time.
Mr. HOPKINS, Philadelphia. I lope
that the rnles will not be suspended. The
representatives from Columbia, Northum
berland and Luzerne are opposed to the pas
sage of the bill, and why, when their ;on
stitnents are directy interested, bou! we
force this bill upon them without a s ngle
amendment j I hope that the House will
at least refu?e to suspend the rules.
Mr. N RE ELAND I hope that the role
! will be suspended, and that this bill w II be
j put on its passage.
Mr. HOPKINS, Philadelphia. I would
ask the gsntleman from Dauphin to explain
how it is that while this bill seems to i iter
est the representatives from Columbia and
Northumberland, neither of those represen
tatives has charge of it, and that Dat phin
must take charge of their interest.
Mr. FREELAND. The whole matter
originates in this town. The persons who
own the lands are here. Northumberland
of the Senator from Northumberland, The
bill was paep in that body, as I bav) re
marked, without it being observed t iat it
gave the company the right to mine oal.
That being discovered, thai Senator came
to me last evening and requested me to
have this provision stricken out. The same
request was made by the Senator from
Schuylkill. Both of those gentlemen have
a constituency very deeply interested in the
mining of coal.
Mr. TATE, Columbia. The coerce of
this House, the last few hours, is cetainly
an anomoly in the history of lgialati n. It
strikes me, as a most remarkable pneeed
ing that the gentleman from Dauphin ibould
attempt to rush through this House a bill
like this, so. vitally effecting the interests
of Northumberland and Columbia counties
regardless of the people's remonstrances
against the great outrages which this com
pany doubtless intend to perpetrate upon
the citizens of those districts. It strikes
me that the course of the gestlemar from
Dauphin involves great disrespect tiwards
ths representatives from those counties that
are so deeply interested in this measure.
I desire to extend to the g;entleman from
Dauphin all the courtesy tbiU is dne to any
gentleman upon this floor. But we ask in
return from him the same courtesj . The
gentleman from Northumberland; Mr.
Brown, offered a fair and jest amendment
to this bill. That amendment has ;een, I
ta sorry to say, voted down X rqrttt to
COUNTY, PA., WEDNESDAY JUNE 4, 1862.
, say thaf the cormorant spirit of corporations
; which has trampled our fair Commonwealth
under foot and whioh this day rides rough
shod over the rights of the people of Penn
sylvania, has shown a disposition this
evening to crush ns. Thank God, we stand
' here in the majesty of freemen. Our voice
and onr votes shall be used against the ef
forts of these monster corporations, let them
come in whatever guise they may. We
bhall meet them and their apoliglsts in the
spirit of men fairly if they prler. any way
if they choose. We want none of their
yankee inventions. Myself and those who
act with me commend these corporations
for their enterprise, so far as it is devoted
to fair and legimate ends; but they must
not expect to come up into the great Dem
ocratic north, and to do with ns as they
please. We demand protection for the
rights of our people. I hope that this house
will not disregard those rights by parsing
this bill. 1 would say, with due respect to
the gentleman from Daophin, that I think
on this question he has treated myself and
other gentlemen -interested, in a manner
unbecoming a representative. We deeply
feel the intended wrong and shall resist it
like men. Since be has spoken here, I
have seen a monster " anaconda" in this
This it not the only instance in which
the rights of my constituents have been en
dangered, during this session, bo the greed
of the corporation power in the Legislature.
Bot recently I detected the same agents at
work in the attempt to rejnvinate the Mc
Canley Coal Company, and the Columbia
Coal and Iron Company, looated in my own
county, by dividing the Companies, under
different corporations and thereby defraud
ing the honest citizens of their legal rights,
in evading all the former accts of legisla
tion by which their just rights had been e
cured. The corporators wanted the Acts,
but they wished to evade all the safe-guard s
and restrictions of former legislation. That
was the reason why they did not apply to
the Representative from Columbia. Our
people will rejoice to learn that the corpo
rationists, with the aid of a foreign Re pre
seotative, were defeated in their unjust
machinations and I trust, Sir, the) will have
the satisfaction of seeing this dodge also de
feated. We live in remarkable times, and who
shall set bounds to monopolis and oppres
sion. Why sir, in Columbia county, I have
learned with amazement and surprise, that
even the dead bodies of our gallant soldiers
whe nobly fell upon the battle-field, in de
fence of our liberties fighting for the Stars
and Stripes, have been charged double and
in some case treble price-ireight, on being

j place. Who thus extorted "many from the
! patriotic daad ! Was it the Railroad or
Express companies. Let them answer to
themselves, their country and their God in
the great day.
Mr STRANG. I desire to vote under
elsndingly on this question, and in order to
do so, I desire to ask the gentleman from
Northumberland a question. This bill pro
vides, simply that this company shall have
the privilege of mining coal on their own
lands. Now, to understand how the Con
stituents of the gentleman from Northum
berland are to be unfavorably effected by
Mr. BROWN, Northumberland. I will
answer the gentleman. There are a nam-
j ber of my constituents who own lands ad
joining the land on which it is proposed to
locate this road. It is their intention, afier
a while, when times become better, to
open mines in that country, and as a mat
ter of course, the means of getting their
coal to market will depend entirely upon
this road. They will be compelled to pay
whatever amount of freight the company
may see proper to charge. If this compa
ny engage also In mining coal they will
i have shch an advantage over private oper
ators as mutt prove almost destructive to
the latter. As I have said, I cannot see
where would be the consistency ol passing
this bill, when we this morning passed a
joint resolution calling upon the Attorney
General to take measures for annulling the
contract giving the Delaware and Hudson
canal company the right to mine coal.
Mr. ROSS, Luzerne. The action of the
House this morning was only for the pur
pose of authorizing th Attorney General to
test the validity of the contract between the
Delaware and Hudson canal company, and
the Pennsylvania, coal company. It in
volved nothing about mining at all.
Mr. BROWN, Northumberland. I have
the exact words of the resolution here, it
was a resolution requiring the Attorney
Genera to institute proceedings to repeal
the charter or annul the contract of the Del
aware and Hudson canal company, and
the Pennsylvania coal company, on account
of their charter giving them the privilege of
Mr. STRANG. Where companies thus
mine coal and conflict with the interests ot
individuals, does it amount to anything
more than the ordinary competition be
tween owners of lands who wish to operate
end to improve them?
Mr. BROWN, Northumberland. Where
transporting companies are allowed the
privilege of mining coal, it gives them an
advantage over private operators, from the
fact that they can ship their coal to market
and undersell private operators, because
tbe company may exact fron these private
operators a very heavy freight en their
1 cannot understand why gentlemen
should desire to pass this bill in spite of
onr protest, when it t an entirely local bill
affecting my constituents, and those of the
gentlemen from Columbia, Mr. Tatc. !
Mr MYERS. It appears to me that the
objections to this bill might be obviated, and ,
all parties accommodated, by fixing in the'
bill the rate at which the railroad company '
shall transport the coal of other parties I
owning land in the same locality with the
land owned by the railroad company.
Mr. BROWN, Northumberland. If the '
bill were amended in that manner, I would
not object to it.
Mr. ROSS, Lizerne. I had not intended, j
Mr. Speaker, to say anything in regard to
the merits of this bill. I was really eurpris
to hear my colleague from Luzerne, Mr.
Russell, talk as he did. Why, sir, Luzerne
county has been made all that it is by just
cuch operations as are contemplated in ibis
bill by tbe owners of coallands being al
lowed to make lateral railroads to transport
their coal to market. I suppose that the
gentleman has heard of Mauch Chunk.
What made it what it is but allowing allow
ing a company to mine coal and transport
it down to Lehigh ? What is it that has
built up Hazleton, the place where my col
league resides ? It would have been a per
fect wilderness bot for just such operations
as my colleague now oppot.es. What made
Carbondale and Scranton, but the operation
of these companies that were allowed to
mine coal on their own lands and 'transport
it to market. So I might name twenty or
thirty instances in our valley wheie compa
nies have had tbe privilege of making lat
teral railroads to transport their coal to mar
ket. Why it is by the operation of just such
companies that Luzerne county has become
the fourth or fifth county in Pennsylvania,
teeming with industry and wealth. The
wilderness has been made to blossom as
the rose. The gentleman from Columbia.
Mr. Tate talks about his constituents being
ruined by such measures as this. I do not
know Jwhat ideas may be entertained in
Columbia county, but we in Luzerne like
to be ruined in this way.
Mr. TATE, Col umbia. If the gentleman
from Luzerne, Mr. Ross, stands here as I
unerstand him to declare, the unconditional
champion of corporations, it is evident he
does not fairly represent the interest of the
I mases of thepeople of tbe great county of
Mr. CESSNA. I desire to make two
suggestions. First, I would suggest to the
gentleman from Dajphin Mr. Frealand ,that
j as it is manifest that the two thirds vote
! necessary to suspend the roles cannot be
; obtained, time v.ou!d b saved by with-
drawing the motion for their suspension If
j that be not dene, then I will make another
j suggestion that that this debate is not in
order on the motion to suspend the rules.
Mr. FREELAND. I withdraw the mo
tion to suspend the rules. ,

The following anecdote from the New
Hampshire Telegraph, is too good to be
Many years ago there was in the eastern
part of Massachusetts, a worthy D D and
although he was an eminently benevolent
man and a good chri stain, yet it must be
confessed that he loved a joke much better
than even the most inveterate jokers. It
wbs betore church organs was much in use
it so happened that the choir of the church
had recently purchased a double bass viol
Not far from the church was a large pas
ture, and in it a huge -own bull. One hot
Sabbath in the summer he got out of the
pasture, and came bellowing up tbe street.
About the church there was plenty of un
trodden and good grass and Mr. Bull stop
ped to try the quality; the doctor was in the
midst ofhissermon when
MBoo-woo-woo." went the bull.
The Dr. pa used, looked up at the singing
seats, and with a grave face, said:
"I would thank the musicians not to fune
their instruments daring service, it .annoys
me very much."
The people stared and the minister went
"Boo wop-woo," went the bull again, as
he passed another green spot.
The pardon paused again, and addressed
"1 really wijnthe singers would not tone
their instruments while I am preaching, as
it annoys me very much."
The people tittered, for they well kaew
what the real state of the case waa.
The minister then went on again with bis
discourse, but be had not proceeded far, be

The parson paused once more and ex

not to tune their instruments during service.

It is said that among "the prizes captured

. Mk. Philosophers have puzzled them
selves how to define man, so as to distin
guish him from other animals. Burke ays
"mar, is an animal that cooks his victuals."
"Then," says Johnson, "the proverb is just,
which says, there is reason in roasting an
egg." Adam Smith has hit the case. "Man
says he, "is an animal that makes bargains.
No other animal does this no dog exchan
ges bones with another."

Timothy Tileoab cn Deacon.
Dr. Holland, of the Sprir gfield Reptddican,
is down upon the sour kind of deacons ; be
likes a whole-souled man, and thinks the
lugubrious sort of religionists are a serious
injury to the reputation of genuine Christi
anity. He says, "I have seen a deacon in
the pride of his deep humility. He comb
ed bis hair straight, and looked studiooly
after the main chance; and while he looked
deacon. He eo brought them up that they
i learned to consider themselves unfortunate
I in being the children of a deacon They
were pitied by other children because they
were the children of a deacon. His wife
pitied by other women because she was the
wife of a deacon. He was not loved by any
body. If he came into' a circle where men
were laughing or telling 6'ories, they al
ways stopped until he went out. Nobody,
ever grasped his hand cordially, or slapped
him on the shoulder, or epoke of Lim as a
good fellow. He seemed as dry and hard
dr.d tough as a piece cl jerked beet. There
was no softness ol character no juciness
no loveliness in him.
"It is of r.o uf.e for me to undertake to
realize myself that God admires such, a
character as this."
