DAILY MORNING POST.
PULLUP/1 4 WY. B. SMITH, ZDITOII.3 •ND'PROPRIISOIS
TUESDAY, MARCH 21, 1643
nAmerauttall, March 16, 1843
To-day being petition day, an hour was
consumed in the morning in presenting
these 'short speeches from the people.'
This being done, a resolution was offered
by Mt. Brooke, instructing the committee
on ways and means to bring in a Bill au
tlitrizing the sale of all the public itnprove
cate. The subject was a fruitful one
for gentlemen to show their patriotism up
on, and there were many who eagerly em
braced the occasion to make a display.
The whip go, unanimously, for such a
proposition, and I presume that a sufficient
number of Democrats will vote fur it, to
carry it. Mr. Speaker Wright made a
very inflammatory speech in favor of the
resolution. It was carried by a large ma.
jority—y . .' s 1 - 5: There were
many, however, who voted for this resolu
tion to instruct the committee, who will
not vote for a Bill to sell the main line of
canals and rail roads from Philadelphia Li)
The transporters ate here 'thick as
blackberries.' They are going to get a
reduction in the tolls; and in case they fail
with that, they are determined to have the
Canal Commissioners thrust from office.
Mr. Rockbill offered 10 , resolution for
the appointment of a committee tb confer
. with the Canal Commissioners upon the
subject of a reduction of the tolls. The
resolution was unanimously adopted, and
Messrs. Rocknill. ?d'Daniel, Lowry, and
Russel were announced on the committee.
In the afternoon. the consideratioa of
• the Bill to erect a new county out of parts
• ,of Huntingdon and Bedford was resun ed.
This Bill visa in charge of Mr.
of Huntingdon. 'That gentleman
made a speech in favor of it—he was re
plied to by Mr. Loy. It was soon obser.
Ved.that members were determined to
have some sport. A number gathered
round the latter gentleman, and commen
ced prompting and laughing at him. The
old gentleman was not daunted in the
least—he continued his speech in broken
Enlist!, amid cries of 'a little louder,' 'go
'go on. &c., &c. Mr. L: appeared to
tickled at his own remarks, •for lie
laughed with the members—particularly
-when he said any thing that was appropos
to the subject. Gen. Sipes, his colleague,
then came to the rescue, and managed the
subject with much adroitness. He offered
several amendments, which the advocates
of tbe Bill found much difficulty in core ,
betting—and his remarks were sensible
and to the point. He was congratulated
when the Howse adjourned, by his friends
upon the skill which he 'displayed in op
posing the Bill.
There was quite a heavy fall of snow
this afternoon. The storm yet continues,
(10 P. M.) Should a rain follow, serious
apprehensions are entertained in relation
to the canal, much damage done to it now
would be a great calamity. There is not
- money in the Treasury to make repairs,
not even enough to burn at the end of e v.
try month. P. Q.

At the request of one of the Forwarding
houses, we publish this morning another aratarnern
attempting to elucidate the system of Tells upon
the public improvements. This qnestiontas been
so much canvassed aisle that, to a person unac•
qua inted with the minutia) of the forwarding
siness, every new statement has the appearance of
"confusion worse confounded." To our mind,
the statement or the Canal Commissioners, and
the calculation that accompanied it, both of which
we published a few days since, placed the merits
of the question before the public more fully than
any thing we have yet seen on the subject; and
skews that on introducing the truck system no ad•
vantages were given to any patty, other than those
which tvr uld naturally follow the adoption of the
new mode of transportation. It the Trucks are
banished front the public works, it is, in effect,
dating that men oft mall capital shall not have the
privilege of engaging in the Cm-warding business;
that our canals Lint ra Iroads are for the exclusive
bent fit of large combinations, and that the inter
ests of vast impro% ements shall succumb to
the v‘ishes of a l'!tv men who a•e handed together
by selfishness alone.
The, continued cold weather, which:keeps the

• TO THE PUBLIC.
MR: EDITOR-- - -
My attention has recently been drawn to the
•enakt.'ct of the Tolls and Motive Power charged on
the Curs -and Trucks on our Rail road, which is
now being much agitated by the public and par.
titularly by That part of the public which aro more
particularly and immediately concerned; thounh
if the matter were properly considered in its pro.
per I ght, every true friend of the improvements,
which arc or ought to be the pride and boast of
our commonwealth, would consider hims_dfdeeply
coi.ecrned; for it is admitted on all hand°, the true
policy of any Government, and the only one by
which the greatest number is, "Justice to all, fas
vont to none,' and all experience has shown that,
just in proportion as this principle is departed
from, Governmentsrhave become obnoxious to the
people in whom •all power is inherent,' and as a
necessary consequence, Ma to a greater or less ex
failed to accomplish the object for which it
I have been no little surprised to find a policy
pursoed by our Curial Commissioners which is
not only calculated to injure the improvements.
but which is doing the extreme of inju =lice to a
highly worthy and enteprising class of our eiti..
zena—men who have placed all of their hard and
honest earnings, and not only that, but their cred
it also in stock upon these Penna. improvements,
(mil here let it not be forgotten that this stock
is to' only the moat expansive kind of stock but al
so the roost perishable of any other) for th. it own
and the interest of the State, fur it must be re
membered that the interest of Or, State and of
' lie Transporters most be mutual if we wish to
compete successfully with other Slates in the car
! eying business. Why, I would . sit, in the name
°fell that is hone.-t, do they allow car wile 'ls and
axles carrying a section boat to run over the rail
road free of expense, when the same kind of wheels
and axles placed under cars roust p ay. and that
heavily toe? is It bicau , ac the One is owned by
the State and the other by nn ind9strious and en
terprising citizen of the State who has givet
! his untiring industry to tie canal anu rail road all
the credit they possess. For it is a fact which
catanut be con roverted that the universal testa
annoy oldie Western and Southern me:radiants is
lan favor of the Penna. carrier; and nothing but
the extreme heavy i ou Some artie:eg has ena•
bled the New York canal to dispute the Irate
with us. It is not as lads been supposed by some,
because our Trans' onus have by cha•ging ex
horbitant prices been e ideavoring to real z enor
moue profits. No; the very reverse of this is the
fact; al.d instead of growing rich by what sonic
have been pleased to term a mmopoly, it Ens taken
their energy and ingenuity to keep afloat, and
even that has not saved all, for it is a well known
an I lamentably fact th at out of all the lines that
have started on the Peuna. improvements riot

ance having pursued this profitable business until
they were not worth one dollar; and even after all
this, the Car a' Commissioners, to clap the climax
of injustice, wish to allow one set amen near 40
dullard more than an ober for doing the same a

by a reference to the annexed statement, to which

Am I wrong then in saying that this is the
right of injustice? are one bet of men to be bu It
up on the ruins of the hard earnings of another,
and edually meritorious class of eitizeui? And
then hear what th•e President of the Board of Ca
nal Commissioners says on the subject when he is
written to and urged to place all on an equality,
(for this is all that the old Transporters ask•) He
says that they (the section boats) cannot afford to
do business on such terms, that is equal terms.—
Well if they cannot do business on equal term.,
would it not be better to do no business? Every
unprejuditief snag- iiill say

I have no doubt that when thicsimmiasionera give
the subject the 'sober second: thought' they will
not hesitate a moment it' placing all upon a level,
either by placing the requisite amount of tolls on
the trucks, to be paid by the owner of the boat,. r
else (v. hich I believe to be the better way) take it
off the cars when empty, which will not only have
the good effect already alluded to, but also enable
our carriers to do their biasiiiess much lower,which
would have the tendency to bring on to our im •
provements many articles which are now tamest
etvirely excluded from them on account of the
expense particularly when empty cars have to be
sent from one point to another for their transpor
In conclusion, I would just ternark, that altho'
I am aware of my inability to do justice to a
subject of such importance, yet inasmuch esibese
hints are dictated by a sincere desire to see equal
justice administered in this matt?r, and an in
ward consciousness that I am right, (fur although
I am no forwarding man nor in any way interest
ed in the businesq, yet I have an opportunity to
know how these things work,) some person more
able of treating it may undertake it, and by that
means `public opinion, the unfailing corrective of
all abuses in a tree Government' be w:.ked up,and
thereby old and well tried friends not be deserted
for more recent acquantances.
