The moontide is hot, and our foreheads are brown
Our palm 3 are all shining and hard;
Right close to our work with the wain and the fur
And but poor i 3 onr daily reward.
Bat there is jay in the sunshine and mirth hi the heitl
That skims wiiiltling away overhead;
Our whits are light, though our skins may be dark
And there's peace with our meal of brown brae&
We dwell in the meadow -5, we toil on the sod,
Far away from the city's dull gloom;
And more jolly are we, though in rags we may be,
Than the pale faces over the loom.
Then a song and a cheer for the bonnie grew etearg
Climbing up to the sun wide and high;
For the pitchers, the rakers, and merry hay:mikes*
And the beautiful Midsummer sky.
Come forth, gentle ladies—come forth, dainty sink .
And lend us your presence awhile;
Your garments will gather no stain from the beet.
And a freckle wont tarnish your smile.
Our carpet 'l"3 more soft for vour delicate feet
Than the pile of your velveted. door;
And the air of our balm-swarth is surely as Avit
I As the perfume of Ara Ly's shore.
Come forth, noble masters, come forth to the fea t
Where freshness and health may be found;
Where first wind-rows are spread, to the butterfly's bails
And the clover-bloom falleth around.
Then a song and a cheer for the bonnie green seenits
Climbing up to the sun wide and high;
For the pitchers, and rakers, and merry heymakefts
And the beautiful Midsummer sky.
"Hold fast!" cries the wagoner, loudly and quicit 4
And then comes the hearty "Gee-wo!" -
While the cunning old team horses manage to pick
A sweet mouthful to munch as they go.
The tawny-faced children come rourulua to Alp,
And bravely they scatter the heap;
Till the tiniest one, all outspent with the fun,
Is curled up with the sheep-dog asleep.
Old age sitteth clown on the haycock's fairctonn4
At the close of our laboring day;
And wishes his life, like the grass at his feet,
May be pure at its "passing away."
Then a song and a cheer for the bonnie green sack,
Climbing up to the sun wide and high,
For the pitchers, and rakers, tend merry haratkatilli .
And the beautiful Midsummer sky.
The Commonwealth, at the rela- In the Sum
tion of David Leech, and others. Court ofreos
vs. syliranii, MA*
The Canal Commissioners of Penn- die District,
1343 May Telt*
This case originated upon the petition of trailid
Leech, James M Davis, James Steel & Co., and fir
G. Dutilh & Co., who complained that the responds ~,.
euts, John B. Butler, Levi Reynolds, and Willie&
Overfield, in Dec miter, 1842, entered into a centred
with C aileron & Wilson, by which there was secures' -
to them the exclusive privilege to carry passengers OVI
the Philadelphia and Columbia Railroad, in rissoles*
cars, which, it was alleged, they were tinattthoriaells
and it was in violation of law, to do. The Relate**
also complain that the respondents, in pursuance of the
Act of the lst of July, 1842, have procured ataninbor
of trucks, and made certain regulations, allowing dig
same robe used on the Philadelphia and Colombia Ana
Allegheny Portage Railroad, without any charge fa
motive-power: while others carrying merchandise ill
their own cars, or using their own trucks. were oblig
ed to nay the State for motive-power: by all which, it
was alleged, a few would soon obtain a monopoly d('
the carrt.ing trade.
The respondents returned for answer to this alit,
that it was true they had entered into a contract with
Cameron & Wilson for carrying passengers on the
Philadelphia and Columbia Roilroad, and that they.
exercised the right to do so by authority conferred mi
them by the Acts of the Bth and 16th of April, 1843.
They also admitted the allegations of the Relators.
that they had purchased trucks for the Commonwealthi
and had made certain regulations respecting the chasls
es for the use of them, but denied that they had made
no charge for motive-power. But on the contrary,
while they charged those who used their own cars, toll
and motive-nower for tonnage and toll and motives
power for wheels; as to section-boats carried upon the
State trucks, their owners were charged the same toll
and motive power for tonnage, and a gross sum ot
thirty-seven and a half cents per thousand pounds
for the use of the trucks, which they alleged was bat
another name for motive-power toll on wheels, snii
that the charges thus made on one class otcanietiS•
and the other, were as nearly equal as their experienee
would enable the respondents to estimate. But the
respondent: also claimed to have the authority tustiste
the existing laws of the State to adopt such reedier
tions, and impose sure tolls and charges, as In dish
judgment, would best promote the public irrterestp
They then further answered, that the system they had
adopted, and the rezulations they had:made, had greeb...
ly promoted the public interests. by introducing a rah'
competition, which had reduced the price of transpoo
tation, increasing_ the public revenue, and restored the
public %v./irks to the State authorities from the hands
o f the R e l a tors, wh r hail heretofore been enabled to
monopolize the whole carrying business and the priers
Upon this return, the Relators asked the Court t 8
award a peremptory mandamus; and the question was
argued before a full Court by
William M. Meredith and Thaddeus Sieves", £i-'
quires, for the Relators; and
Frederick Watts, Esq., for the respondents.
The opinion of the Court was delivered by ChiefJav
Gtnso:s, C. J.—The conclusion at which we have
arrived in respect to the merits of the complaint, makes
it necessary to act on the motion to quash the writ.
The Commonwealth's lines of canals and railroad*
are not highways, which the citizen is not entitled ID

called, in technical lan g uage, the King's highways,
