Adjournment of the Legislature.
The Pennsylvania Legislature adjourned
on Thursday, April 11th. The Senate, in
accordance with the provisions of the Con
stitution, before its adjournment, proceeded
to elect a Speakei, whereupon Hon. J. L.
Graham, of Allegheny, was elected the
Democrats voting for W. A. aliace, Lsq., j
of C!c:.rfield. Speaker Hall, before retiring
thanked the Senate for their support during
his term. In the House, resolutions of
thanks to SpeaWr Glass, were passed, and
he was also presented with china and silver
se'd, poid watch and silver salver from mem
bers of. both sides, and the officers. Speak
er Glass, in hi3 closing remarks, charged
the Senate with the responsibility of defeat
ing the free railroad law. At 12 o'clock, !.,
both branches adjourned, tine die.
During its session of sixty working days,
the Legislature passed one thousand six
hundred and fifty-two bills and sixteen joint
resolutions. Of these, one thousand two
hundred and eighty-six had beeu signed by
the Governor up to the hour of adjourn
mentmaking an average of nearly twenty
eight laws per day, as having ken placed
upon the statute books during- the past ses
sion. That many of the acts passed by this Leg
islature, are of public beneGt, and will be
approved by the people fpnlln iiierff is
no Hr"J j - Yet, in other instances, that
Lou'y failed to meet the wants or demands of
large communities in various sections of the
Commonwealth. Justice to the people in
the Southwestern part of the State would
have restored to the Connellsville railroad
company all its privileges to complete that
great thoroughfare, but the Legislature
thought otherwise. The mass of the peo
ple favored the passage of a general or "free"
railroad law, but their "servants" disre
garded that favorable expression and defeat
ed the measure asked for. That some of
the members will be held to a strict account
ability by their immediate constituency for
their action in reference to these two meas
ures, is manifest from the tone of their home
papers. This is right. If the people elect
men to attend to what they believe to be
"of the greatest" gool to the greatest num
ber," their wishes should be complied with,
iinW manifestly and radically wrons. If
the people's chosen representatives disregard
their will, then let all such be cast aside as
unworthy of conQdence, and in the future
emleavor to elect better men. Should this
course be adopted by the people, we should
soon have a Legislature that would be en
tirely above suspicion a Legi.-latuve that
would only look to.the best intererts of its
constituents, and the development of the
fitill hidden and inexhaustible lesourccs of
this great and growing Commonwealth.
IIcssian America. In another column
we publish an article in reference to the
soil, products, etc., of Russian America,
just ceded to the United States. The arti
cle will be read with interest, as it embraces
extracts from the pen of an' Englishman,
who in 1855 advocated its 'annexation to
British America ou account of its vast for
ests of timber, and its commercial advanta
ges on the Pacific coast. Whether Russian
America is as valuable as is generally sup
posed is not satisfactorily demonstrated as
yet. That it is of some considerable im
portance in commercial point, may be in
ferred from the fact the London Times and
Aeict exhibit much uneasiness on account
of its cession to the United States, and de
clare that England would enter a protest
aeainst its nurchace by our crovernment if
sue had a right to do so. But time alone
can demonstrate satisfactorily the wisdom
of tho purchase of this vast Northwestern
territory by our authorities. So let us wait
and see. .
Just So! The Philadelphia Inquirer
hopes the wholesale character of the gift
demonstrations by members at the close of
the legislative session is not to be considered
a precedent. If the members choose to
make the subordinate officers presents, well
and good, it is only the business of the par
tics concerned but a public display of mis
cellaneous merchandise in the halls. of the
Legislature, and making their presentation
a part of the publie busiuess, is not in very
good taste. Hereafter, such scenes had bet
ter take p!cca at the hotels, after adjourn
ment, where they would be entirely in order.

A correpRonrlent of the Levant Herald,
gives the following amount or tue destruc
tion of Myteleue by an earthquake :
On Thursday, March 6th, the weather nal
hopn olnse and nnwholesonielv hot : but, as
ent tenevation been visited by an earthquake
About G d. m , a sharp shock, lasting some
fifteen or eighteen seconds. vibratedthrough
out the town, and before the faet was well
realized, was followed by a second, longer
and much more violent one. I happened at
the moment to be down at the pier of the
Austrian Lloyd's agency, and nearly half a
minute before the "shock was felt on shore,
saw the sea heave and foam out in the port
as if a submarine explosion had taken place.
Little time, however, was left for surprise.
In much less time than I take to write it,
the double thrill quivered through the town,
and, reeling like drunken men, whole blocks
of solid stone houses collapsed as if they
had been card houses.
Up iu the town entire streets similarly
crumbled, burying their inhabitants by hun
dreds in the luins. - The fine old c .stle, the
cathedral, the Governor's kocnk, the prison,
the mosques, and, I believe, all the consular
residences, more or less yielded to the vio
lence of the shook, and are, for the most
part, mere heaps ut ruins. The very solid
ity with which the town was built has ag
gravated the disastrous effects of the calam
ity a LurHred fold, both as regards the loss of
of and destruction of property. The most
complete ruin has fallen upou the lower part
of the town, where the earth literally open,
ed and swaliowed a broad belt of buildings
right up from the sea to the slope inland.
At this point a permanent subsidence of the
ground has taken place, and the sea has ac
cordingly encroached far into what, on
Thursday afternoon, was one of the busiest
parts of Myteleue. In fact, to sum up the
disaster, more than half of our beautiful
town the prettiest ar.d most lively, per
haps, of all the Levant is a desert of ruins.
The worst part of the calamity is, of course,
the loss of life. As yet .we can only guess
at the extent of this ; but it is thought that
from S(M) to 1 .tKX have perished, while as
many more have been maimed and wounded
in every way. Up till to-day 120 bodies
have, I hear, been dag out of the safer
ruins ; buhow many more may be buried
under others which are too dangerous to be
approached can onl' be surmised. Such of
the houses as are still standing have all been
abandoned, and the whole surviving popu
lation is now scattered over the hiil-sides
and anion? the gardens outside of the town
a few of them under such covers as they
have been able to improvise, arid the rest
bivouacking without shelter of any kind.
Any attempt to describe the scene would be
useless. Heart-rending rrier, panic, and
confusion meet the eye o"n every side. Al
ready the want of provisions is aggravating
the distress, and only a speedy supply fiom
Smyrna or the capital can avert great loss of
life, ltut not the town ot MyUslene aloue
has suffered from the great calamity ; it has
scattered ruin and death throughout the
whole northern part of the island. Hardly
a village has escaped, and not merely prop
erty but life has been destroyed and nearly
tlie whole of Molivo ha fceen all but entire
ly demolished, and several hundreds of its
six or seven thousand inhabitants have, it
is said, perished in the ruins. It is, in fact,
no exaggeration to say that half the island
has been laid waste, with a sacrifice of hu
man life that may be reckoned by thousands.
No such disaster has'ever befallen Mytelene.
ington correspondent of the Herald says :
Some people ask what will England do a
boutthis treaty? If people who ought to
know are to be believed England will do ex
actly nothing. John Bui will put his hands
in his breeches pockets, shrug up his shoul
ders and assume art attitude of supreme in
difference. One of the attaehees ot the
British Legation, on being asked the other
day about the matter, smiled carelessly and
said, "Aw, yes, the Russian treaty. Aw,
we don't cire about that, you know ; It's
no affair of ours, you know." "But," sug
gested the pumper, "the Rus-ian Posses
sions will be of great advantage to the Uni
ted States." "Aw, yes, yes ; no doubt
very good for your people who want offices
up there, you know ; but it's of no conse
quence, you know it's of no consequence
to us," with an immense emphasis on the
Smnoun. The expression of this diplouiat
rToots, no doubt, reflects John Bull's sen
timents on the subject.
The Wheat Crop. The Cincinnati Ga
zette says : The new crop of wheat will
come upon a market more bare than has
been experienced for many years. This be
ing the case, it is particularly pleasant to
know that the wheat crop was never more
promising. In some sections the breadth
of land planted was not as large as usual,
owing to the great scarcity of seed, but
there is, nevertheless, a fair average of land
under winter wheat, and if the harvest
turns out as well as it now promises, we
shall have a large yield. The crop is of
course still liable' to suffer, but let suffice for
the present, that the prospects are excellent
and the season decidedly favorable.
A Charleston dispatch' says : At a meet
ing of the prominent citizens of this place,
on the 2d inst., it was unanimously agreed
that the Freed men should be entitled to run

Legislature. The meeting was composed,
in a large proportion, of old Democrats and
secessionists, and General Hampton sent a
letter to it, urging the policy of giving the

p-Wthp most satisfactory description
to be found of the vast territory recently
purchased from Russia by our Government !
is given in a pamphlet published 111 ISoo, by j
A. R. ROChe, Ot yueOeC. -HUS yampiuci.
("Russian America and the present W ar )
was written witU a view of urging the Brit
ish Government to aid in fitting out an ex
pedition for the conquest of Russian Amer
ica, and its annexation to the British pos
sesions, but the war with Russia came to a
close in the following year, and the project,
it ever seriously i-utertained in England,
was of course uo longer thought of. e
quote frofii the pamphlet a description of
some ot the features ei me luiiitu.j ju.-i
ceded to the United States :
" Ji'ith a coast upon the Pacific of some
fifteen hundred miles in length, indented by
numerous sounds and capacious harbor, and
studded with many large lslsnds. of consid
erable resources, it extends Lack, for about J
one tuousana Holes ot that coast, 10 a uis- j
tsnce of nine hundred miles, and for the j
remaining five hundred miles ot the coast,
to thirty miles, tae latter oeing tne portion
in front of our possessions which it cuts off
from the Pacific ; while the Peninsula)!'
Alaska, about fifty miles in breadth, stretch
es out in the Pacific for upwards of three
hundred miles, the whole territory compris
ing a surface of l ine hundred thousand
square miles. It is thus about sixteen times
the size of England. It contains many
mountain ranges of great height, and fii c
valleys, magnificently watered and fertilized
by larce lakes and rivers ; the mountain
ranges in the upper and broader portion of
the territory, having a transverse direction,
and therefore sheltering the valleys from
northerly winds, which in that quarter are
cold winds in summer, while, extraordinary
as it may appear to many, in winter they
invariably cause a rise in the thermometer.
At both these seasons southerly winds pro
duce effects directly opposite to the former,
being warm winds in summer and cold winds
in winter. A great portion of" this vast re
gion (in some places to within a short dis
tance of the Arctic Circle,) is covered with
forests of the largest and most valuable trees.
Even upon some of the islands of Prince
William's Sound, in 61 degrees north lati
tude, where it might, be expected that the
influence of the wind and sea would prevent
or retard the growth of tree, Cook found
the Canadian and spruce nine of a large
size ; and of the country adjacent to Norton
Sound, lying in 64 degrees and 55 minutes
north latitude, he savs: 'From the elevated
spot on which .Mr. King surveyed the sound
he could distinguish many extensive valleys,
with rivers running through them, well
wooded, and bounded by hills of a gentle
ascent, and moderate height. One of these
rivers appeared to be of considerable siz-3.
Some of the people, who penetrated beyond
this into the coutry, found the trees larger
the farther they advanced.' In speaking of
the resources of Russian America, Sir John
Richardson, in his work upon the 'Arctic
searching expedition,' quotes Bongard with
regard to one portion of it. who says that
the 'hill of Westvoi,' near Norftilk sound,
in north latitude 5S degrees, which is 3X
feet, French measure, in height, is clothed
to its summit by a dense forest of pines and
spruces, some of which acquire a circumfer
ence of twenty-one feet, and the prodigious
length of one hundred and sixty feet, and
that the hollow trunk of one of these trees,
made into a canoe, is able to contain thirty
men with all their household effects. Sir
John Richard adds : 'The climate of Sitka' '
(the name of the bay as well as the island
upon which is situated New Archangel, the
diief port of the Russian company, lying in
57 degrees north latitude,) 'is very much
milder than that of Europe on the same
parallel, the cold of winter being neither se
vere nor of long continuance. The humid
ity of the atmosphere gives astonishing vig
or to the vegetation, but although the forest
nourished by a very moist atmosphere and
comparatively high mean temperature, is
equal to that of the richest woodlands of
the Northern" United Spates, yet corn does
not ripen there. This humidity of the at
mosphere, which is occasioned by the sur
rounding sea, is doubtless the cause of c)rn
not coming to perfection at Sitka : for some
distance in the interior of the continent, as
I far east as the Mnckenzi". in the territory
occupied by the Hudson Bay Company, tin
cereals are successfully cultivated up to 60
degrees north latitude, "and occasionally in
some spots situated 5 degrees further north.'
In the neigh'iorhood of the Mackenzie, Sir
John Richardson says that 'Fort Laird of
the sixtieth parallel, may be considered as
the northern limit of the economical of
wheat,' as in the interior of Russian Amer
ica the climate must he of a dryer nature
than upon the seaboard, and probably mow
in the extreme, that is, colder in winter and
warmer in summer, much of the inferior
may be well adapted for the growth of the
cereals, although thev cannot le successfully
cultivated 51 the Russian establishments
upon the coast. The harbor of Sitka, and
several other, fine harbors are open during
the whole winter ; thus showing an extraor
dinary contrast to the opposite coasts of
Asia, which are ice-lmund for three parts of
the year. Even as high up s Behring's
Straits great difference of climate exists be
tween the coasts of the Asiatic and Ameri
can continents.
"In his 'Travels Round the World,' Sir
George Simpson remarks that, "although
at some points Behring's Straits are only
forty-five miles wide, in the general appear
ance of the two coasts there is a marked dif
ference, the western side being low, flat,and
sterile, while the eastern is well wooded, and
in every respect better adapted than the oth
er for the sustenance of both man and beast.
Moreover, the soil and climate improve rap
idly on the American shore as one descends,
and at Cook's inlet, (in 60 degrees N. lati
tude,) potatoes may be raised with ease, al
though they hardly ripen in any part of
Kainpstschatka, which extends nearly ten
degrees south. Thus, both in soil and cli
mate, the great portion of Russian-America,
bordering upon the sea, is not inferior
to the eastern coasts of America and Asia,
whether lying in the same, or in a much
lower parallel. Sitka, for instance, which is
in 58 degrees north latitude, has a climate
almost as temperate as that of London, in
51 degrees north latitude, (the mean annual
temperature of the former leing45 degrees
44 minutes, and that of the latter 49 degrees
70 minutes,) and it has also about as mild
a winter as the southern portion of Japan,
situated in a much lower latitude. The su
periority, however, .of .the soil and climate
of Russian-America, over the soil and cli
mate of the opposite voasCs of Asia, has
been observed from the time of Kotzebue
up to the present moment.
"But we have still more recent evidence
of the comparative mildness of the climate
upon the American sidi, even in a higher
latiruue. At Point Parrow, in 71 . degrees
north, where there is a large Esquimaux
village, and where Her Majesty's ship Plo
ver wintered in 1852-', her commander,
Lieut. Pullen, reported that during the en
tire in;er the fall of snow did ngt exceed
one foot' in depth, and that on the colde.-t
day the thermometer only m: ked 43 degrees
below zero; a degree ol cold not much
greater than that which was experienced
Queliec lat winter, where. hIki. the entire
quantity of snow which fell during that pe
riod was about fifteen times greater than
that r -ported as above to have fallen during
the winters of I?52 at Point Barrow, sir1
uated 20 degrees further north.
' Of the many large rivers which flow
through Russian-America, none of them
have been explored to their sources ; but
several of them, such as the Colville. the
Stikine, tlie Yuken or Kwichpack, and the
Kukokwin. are supposed to run a course of
upwards of one thousand miles, and to be
navigable for a considerable distance. From
their breadth as well a their length, and
the volume of water Vhich thev discharge
into the sea," they may certainly be included
among rivers of the first class. The Col
ville, which was dirfovered by Simpson and
Deesu since the Convention of l-'-W, is two

- nines wiae at its mourn 1:1111? anit ci-.i
where Capt. McClure observed its influence
twelve or fourteen miles out at sea, the wa
ter at that distance being of a dirty mud
color, and scarcely salt. Tne Stikine enters
tho Pacific at 5o degrees 50 minutes north
latitude, where it is three miles wide, and
at a distance of CO miles from the sea has a
width of one mile ; but its source is in Brit
ish Territory. Of the Yukon, or Kwich
pack, Sir John Richardson says:' 'It rises
to the wet of the Rocky mountains, not
far from the .Union of the Francis and Lew
is, which forms the Pelly, flows tirst to the
north, and after receiving a large tributa
ry named the Porcupine, to the westward,
falls into Behring's Sea,' and that 'in GO
degrees north latitude, and 147$ degrees
west longitude,' which is about one thou
sand miles 'from its mouth. 'It is one
mile and a quarter wide. These three mag
nificent rivers, falling into different seas,
probably represent three distinct river sys
tems of the northwest corner of this conti
nent, each being fed by numerous smaller,
yet considerable, streams, and the three to
gether draining an extent of courtry much
larger than the whole of Canada. The Rat
River, mentioned by Mr. Ibister, of the
Hudson Bay Company's service, in a com
munication to the Royal Geographical So
eie'3 flows from Russian-America through
the Rocky mountains at ti e first complete
break in the chain in 67 degrees north lati
tude into the Mackenzie of the British ter
ritory, the latter having, according to Sir
Johu Richardson, a course of 3,SiHJ miles,
(Si0 longer than the jit. Lawrence ;) and
an unbroken navigation, fit for steamboats,
from its entrance in the Arctic Sea to the
Portage of the Drowned, a distance of from
twelve to thirteen hundred miles. In addi
tion to the Russian territory being every
where drained by the finest rivers, it con
tains many large lakes communicating with
the former, and is indented with numerous
deep and spacious harbors, and also by sev
eral extensive arms of the sea. Of the lat
ter, Cook's inlet, runs upwards of two hun
dred miles into the land, these lakes and riv
ers, and- these inlets and harbors, jnay be
viewed as very important features of the
country. They not only assist to temper
the climate (the former by draining the land)
which generally shapes towards the sea and
towards the Mackenzie, and the latter by
the salt atmosphere, which their waters dif
fuse through the interior, but they tend to
enrich the soil upon the banks, by a short
period of overflow in ' the spring, and may
be made to afford facilities for inter-communication,
tendering accessible the most re
tired and irost sheltered valleys, and for the
establishment and active prosecution of an
outward commerce.
Large Crops Looked foil Those who
pretend to be wcathenvisc, predict that we
will be blessed with heavy crops the ensuing
season. It has been noticed, says the Frank
lin 'ositon. that whenever a heavy fall
of snow occurred about the time of full
moon, in February, large crops and an a
bnndance of everything ore sure to follow.
We trust that in the present instance there
will be no deviation from the custom. Rich
and poor will be gratified to see large sup
plies the coming summer.

A Singular Case. The Fort Wayne
(Ind.) Gazette gives the following account
ot the recovery of his speech and hearing
by a boy named Stanley Marshall, who lost
both in consequence of an attack of lung
lever about a year and a half ago:
" A week or ten days ago, George Lloyd
and others, who had for some time before
taken a good deal of interest in the boy,
conceiwd the idea of restoring his hearing
by means of souks violeut shock. They fired
a idstol over his head, ami within a few
inches of his car, but it made no impres
sion. Some one told him that a liberal use
of liquor would cure him, and taking a no
tion to try the experiment, last Monday af
ternoon he pawned his pocket-book for a
glass of whisky. Mr. Lloyd coming in (at
Strong's eating house) andfinding him tip
s'.", determined to carry tho experiment fur
ther, and giving him more whisky, until he
was quite drunk, and then commenced a
rubbing and shaking that shortly resulted
in return of hearing. He rubbed the ears
of the boy until the skin was broken, and
shook him until he was almost as tired of
the exercise as the boy was, or rather would
have been if sober.- Suddenly something
seemed to bieak loose in his chest or throat.
There was a report like the popping of a
cork from a bottle of mineral waterand
the boy 'called Lloyd a "fool"' the first
word he hud spoken for over a year, lie
soon began to talk more freelv, his speech
coming back in broken accents like tho?e of
a chiio. lie went to iea quite sick mat
nigLt. and woke un the next morning ouite
stiff and sore from the harsh treatment of
the day before, but able to talk and bear
nearly as well as ever, the boy says that
when his speech returned it seemed as if a
weight was lifted from his lungs he felt as
it something jn him had "busted" and got
in both cars.
