The Fisheries of Pennsylvania.
One of the most respectable assemblages
of citizens of Pennsylvania, that has been
convened m the Mate capital lor many
yeais says the Ilarrisburg Telegraph, was
. that of the delegates to the Fish Con
vention which met in the ITouse of Repre
sentatives on the 10th. Six hundred dele
gates presented credentials as representa
tives of different localities. It was compos
ed of earnest and energetic men, met togeth
er for the advancement of an object involv
ing questions of almost vital importance to
the masses of the people. At all times,
the question of cheap food is worthy the at
tention of the business man and the legisla
tor ; and any movement calculated to secure
this economy in the price of the necessaries
of life, is deservieg the support of influen
tial men of all parties.
The opening of the Susquehanna river to
the free passage of fish, by the alteration
or the dams now obstructing that stream
and its tributaries, has for years past been
felt as one of ' stern necessity. When the
corporations which now own dams in those
streams, were allowed the right to erect such
works it was never fbr a moment supposed
that the result would be the destruction of
the fisheries. Those streams were regarded
as puouc ui2h-ways. vv hen their use was
conceded to corporations, it was not con
templated that from such u.-e, by other par
ties, their products, which are really the
gift of God, would be imparled and hopeless
ly ruined. But such has been the case,
Jbxteusive and valuable hhcnes, at one
time employing many people, which created
larsre revenues and afforded cheap food for
the laborer, have been abandoned, because
the dams thus erected in these streams pre
vented the passage offish to those waters. Sci
ence and mechanism have since demonstrat
ed the tact that uams can b erected so as
to afford the passage fo fish. It has also
been established that dams can be altered
so as to secure this object. Other States,
by these means, have restored "fisheries im
paired by this influence, and the people
living along streams in Pennsylvania, which
once abounded with fish, but which have
been gradually drawn hence to other waters
to spawn and multiply, now only ask for a
restoration of blessings bestowed by God,
as a free offering to all It is not for a mo
ment' doubted that the Legislature will fail
to pass the necessary laws to secure this
great object.
Election of State Treasurer.
The re-election of William II. Kemble, as
State Treasurer, which took place on Janu
ary 10th, is a compliment to a faihful pub
lic ofSccr, and the acknowledgment of the
abilities and integrity of a financier who has
never been excelled in the Treasury Depart
ment. To-day, no State in the Union pre
sents a clearer financial sheet than Pennsyl
vania. Her debt is of course' large, but its
prospective liquidation was never more en
couraging, while in the face of this "indebt
edness, and while its -reduction is steadily
going on, the fact that the State Treasurer
can recommend a repeal of certain taxation
now resting heavily on the poor, shows how
vast are our resources and how earnest are
his efforts to put them to the best uses of
the people.
, Coal continues so scarce and dear at many
points where even railroad facilities exist,
that Indian corn is actually used as a sub
stitute at various places in the West ! At
Janesville, Ohio, according to the Gazette
of that town, the Corn Exchange Company
use corn for fuel as cheaper than coal !
When we know that thousands upon thou
sands of laborers in our large cities are out
of employment, it is surprising that wages
and every necessary of life should have fall-
en so little since the close of the war. Who
can explain the cause? What is our home

the honor to acknowledge the receipt from
you of a copy of the resolution of the Senate
of the Uuited States, of date the 21st of
December, 1865. In that resolution the
Senate respectfully request to be informed
on what charges and for what reasons Jeff
erson Davis is still held in confinement, and
why he has not been put upon trial I
When the war was al its crisis Jefferson
Davis, the commander-in-chief of the army
of the insurgents, was taken prisoner, with
other prominent rebels, by the military for
ces ot the United btates. It was the duty
ot the military so to take them. They have
been heretotore, and are yet fceld as prison
ersofwar. Though active hostilities have
ceased, a state of war still exists in the ter
ritory in rebellion. Until peace shall come
in fact, and in law, they can rightfully be
held as prisoners ot war,
I have ever thought that trials for treason
cannot be held before a military tribunal
The civil courts have alone jurisdiction of
that crime. The question then ris:s, where
and when must the trials thereof beheld?
In that clause of the constitution mention
ed in the resolution oi the fcenate, it is
plainly written that they must be held in the
otate and district wherein the crime shall
have been committed. I know that many
persons of learning and ability entertain
the opinion that the commander-in-chief of
the rebel armies should be regarded as con
structionally present with all the insurgents
who prosecuted hostilities, and made raids
upon the northern and southern borders of
the loyal States. This doctrine of construc
tive presence, earned out to its logical con
sequence, would make all who had been
connected with the rebel armies liable to tri
al in any State and district into which any
portion of these armies had made the slight
est incursion. Not being persuaded of the
correctness of that opinion, but regarding
the doctrine mentioned as i doubtful, con-
stitutionallv. I have thought it not proper
to advise you to. cause criminal proceedincs
to be instituted against Jefferson Davis or
any other insurgent in the States or dis
tricts m which they were not actually pres
ent during the prosecution qt hostilities.
Some prominent rebels were personally
present at the invasion of Maryland and
Pennsylvania, but all or nearly all of them
received military paroles upon the surren
der of the rebel armies. Whilst I think
that those paroles are not an ultimate pro
tection for TWrRivnr.inn for hich trfiasnn. T
have theught that it would be a violation of
the paroles to prosecute those persons for
crimes before the political rower of the
Jxovcrnment has proclaimed that the rebel
lion has been suppressed.
it tollows, Irom what I have said, that
aJn the Pinion tnt Jefferson Davis
and others of the insurgents ought to be
tried in some one of the States or districts
m which they may be charged. Though
active hostilities and flagrant war have not
for some time existed between the United
States and tbe insurgents, peaceful relations
between the Government and the people in
the States and districts in rerjelhon have
not yet been fully restored. None of the
justices of the Supreme Court have held

held in military custody as prisoners oi
and who may not have been tried and con
victed for offences against me
should be transferred to the custouy of the
civil authorities of the proper districts to be

ors as may be alleged against mem. .

Mr. Row: The weather has been very
fine here most of the winter having had
only about four inches of snow. It is much
more pleasant to sit here by a warm nre.
than hauling timber in the hills of Clear
field : and I would advise my mends to
move to the west, where they can live with
much less hard labor than among the moun
tain pines. My boys raised, the past year,
fifteen hundred bushels of' oats, ten thou
sand bushels of corn, and three hundred
bushels of wheat Oats brings 20 cents a
bushel, corn 30 cents, and wheat from 50
cents to one dollar. You arc aware, no
doubt, that I was a little unfortunate last
year, in Clearfield, on account of not get-
tmz mv timber to market : but it no ui-
untoreseen misfortune overtakes me now,
and mv friends will have a little patience,
shall soon be able to satisfy their claims,

Ho ! for the South. We begin to dis
cover indications that the tide ot emigration
from this and other northern States towards
the South is to set in the future with a strong
current. Its fertile fields and salubrious cli
mate present strong temptations to North
ern capital and enterprise. By the abolition
of slavery the labor interests of that region
are undergoing a radical change. Men of
enterprise and means will either purchase
or lease the plantations and enter upon cot
ton and sugar growing with an energy and
will that must entirely revolutionize the in
dustrial interests of that region. The bene
fits of tree labor will be realized at an early
day. In this way the South is to bejeclaim-
ed in all its interests and brought into har
mony with the rest of the Union. -
One million five hundred pounds of cot
ton orirood staple, have been raised m the
vicinity of Carbondale, Jackson county. Il
linois, the past season. The gins are in op
eration at the prrsent time, preparing the
cotton for market. Preparations are beine
made in the county of Jackson, to devote a
large breadth of land to the growing of cot
ton the coming season. Illinois farmers
consider at the present prices it is the most
profitable crop that can be raised. In addi
tion the State produced in 1865 one hun
dred and seventy-seven millions of bushels
of corn, twenty-five millions of bushels of
wheat, eight hundred thousand bushels of
rye, one million of barley, and twenty-eight
million bushels ot oats.
A letter from the Chief Clerk of the Uni
ted States Government Farms, St. Mary's
county.Md., states that the "Freedmen there
have raised during the year six thousand
bushels of corn, with wheat, oats, and that
in addition to six barns of 'tobacco and the
usual amount of ' 'truck. " Out of the corn
and oats raised, we have fed our teams and
cattle, consisting of eighty-two horses and
eighteen oxen. There has been a large a
mount of hay secured in addition to the corn
fodder and the farms present a marked con
trast, showing the difference between com
pensated labor and slavery.

dent's message, and asserting that the
States lately in rebellion are still States of
the Union, was taken up. Mr. Voorhees
made a speech, and was replied to by Mr.
Bingham, of Ohio. The latter offered a
substitute, but the whole matter was re
ferred to the Committe on Reconstrution.
ls the o en ate, on January tuth, a
memorial of colored citizens of Savannah,
asking for suffrage, was presented. A bill
was introduced to increase the regular army,
There are to be seven regiments of artillery,

Howard commented on the admitted viola
tions of the law in this resneet hv t hA Raa.
retary, but suggested that an admonition to
