Oar Canals.
The North American says we hare in the
United States between thirty-five hundred
and four thousand miles of public and pri
vate otnals, of which somewhat over eleven
hundred, or nearly a third, are in Pennsyl
vacin. The canal- in this State coat up
wards of $31,000,000 and those of the coun
try represent more than $100, 000, 000, ex
clusive of all that have been oi are being
constructed in California. The cheapest cost
more than $15,000 per milo, while the
Chesapeake and Delaware rose to $203,703
per mil, and the Lachine to $235,934 for
eaeh of its niac miles. They vary 32 to 190
feet wide at the surface, from 3J to 10 feet
in depth, and the boats that ply upon them
in some cases rise to 500 tons burden.
Oa this tubject the Pittsburg Gazette re
marks that until within a very late date the
importance of canals for the moving of
f mights was greatly under estimated, and
fear there were but believed that tbey would
be entirely abandoned as useless before the
march of railway improvements. It haa
been found, however, that these internal
systems of communication have not outlived
their usefulness, but as a means for the
ti asportation of heavy freight at cheap
races, are vastly superior to railroad?, the
disadvantage of slowness is the only great
drawback to canals, but it is highly proba
ble that stenui will sooo take the place of
horse power, and that a cheap and compar
atively swift water carriage will be establish
ed to meet the imperative demands of the
times. Pennsylvania, owning nearly a third
part of the four thousand miles of canals in
the United States, is deeply interested in
bringing them to a greater perfection and
usefulness, aud our people would hail with
pleasure and satisfaction any improvement
in the system which looks towards cheaper
Hale, our present Minister to Spain, is
charged with having smuggled into that
cou.itry, in October, 1806, among other article-,
830 pounds of cotton, 1500 pounds of
woo.cu feit. 44,000 pounds of carpeting, 375
piunl-. of linen damask, 760 pounds of other

its. If this be true, he has disgraced his
country as no other MinUter has hitherto
dooa, and. deserves the severest censure at
the hands of his countrymen. It is a pity
too. to see an old man thus destroy the rec
ord of an honorable and useful life. The
matte-, will undergo a proper investigation.
II ! ha ! ha ! The declination of J. R.
Clay, the colored man, to accept the mis
sion to Liberia, affords considerable fun to
Democratic journalists. The Cincinnati En
quirer accounts for his conduct by saying
that ''the natives of that country havere
ently recurred to an old habit of theirs
that of eating each other; and the shrewd
Clat evidently fears that he might lie
heavy on the stomachs of his cannibal breth
ren." That is good, but wouldn't it be well
iavor a white Democrat with the posi
tion, for members of that perty can lie con
veniently anywhere ; the are so used to it,
you know?
Election Frauds. The result of the
examination into the election frauds in
Philadelphia last October shows so far as it
tag progressed that tico thousand one hun
dred fraudulent votes were cast foiyhe
ticket labelled democratic enough even to
thiowout Mayor Fox and the whole Dem
ocratic ticket, and put the Republican can
didates in their places ! This is the toost
disgraceful and criminal to the party prac
tising or conniving at it, aud ought to make
every man blush who votes the Democratic
ticket for being in the company of such
rogues and villiam.
The Pittsbcro Fire. The Pittsburg
Gizette of April 20th, says, that the expen
sive conflagration at Forsythe's oil works
h at length been so far subdued that only
a tank of distillate oil, containing eight
. .- "thousand barrels, which was one of the first
'"-.-. .- to take fire, is still" burning, and will proba
bly continue to burn antil it is all consumed.
The loss of property is estimated at $29$,
0(H). on which there is an insurance to the
amount of f S4.000. This is perhaps the
heaviest loss by any siug'e fire in Pittsburg
since the great conflagration in 1S45.
$2,000 Reward Gov. Geary, under
authoiity of n act of the Legislature, ha?

Ati iickltcrai, FviR. Tha State Fair,
it is announced, u t be held at Harrisbnrg
again this year the so-.-iety hating adopted

The Fair will oten on the last Tuesday of
September next and continue fourdars.
A TORNADO.-Oa Monday of last week
a very destructive tornado passed over sev
eral of the Western State,, doing much
, GiTea Him Up.
The New York Commercial at last gives
up Andrew Johnson. Alluding to his lute
speeches in Tennessee, it says: "By his
outrageous course, since returning to the
South, he. has absolved every one hitherto
disposed to palliate his faults from any obli
gation to longer apologize for him. Many
who believed that, notwithstanding his er
rors of omission and commission, he aimed
to do right, stood by him in his conflict with
Congress, desired to draw the veil of obliv
ion over his career, and see him return qui
etly to the peaceful shades of private life.
Many who deprecated his unjustifiable use
of the pardon power and his violent out
breaks of temper, nevertheless entertained
considerable admrration for the man's pluck
in coping, single-handed, as ho did, with
his powerful pjlitical antagonists. When,
however, he returns to Tennessee to advo
cate the very revolutionary schemes for op
posing which he became President, he alien
ates every Unionist, aud occupies the posi
tion of a public enemy. The Tennessee
Government, which be denounces in such
severe terms, and which he would have the
people overthrow by force, if uecessary, is
his own offspring the legitimate fruit of
his labors. lie it was whj laid the founda
tions for it, and itTvhs under his Military
Governorship that it was inaugurated and
set in operation. We trust the people of
the South will folio it Foote-'s advice, and
cling to Grant, instead of lending their ears
to the seditious barraugues of Johnson, who
is bent on mischief, and labors to fan into a
fresh flame the dying embers of strife."
Tue Land-"Rinq" Job. The land
grant jobs, not acted on by Congress at its
recent sersion, and therefore in order next
winter, aggregated a total of 181,945,640
to railroads and canals. Quite a small em
pire in its way, for the gentlemen of the
lobby. Then there are pending propositions
to guarantee raihoad bonds to $114,300,000.
Then there are steamship subsidies amount
ing to many millions. Up to October, 1867,
the land which had been granted for rail
road purposes amounted to 184,813,900
acres, at which time the Commissioner of
the Land Office, in presenting these figures
in hij report, said : "The quantity of lands
conveyed by these grants is of empire ex
tent, exceeding in the aggregate, more than
5,000,000 acres the entire areas of the six
New Eugland States, added to the surface
of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania,
Ohio, Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia."
Won't Gen. Grant please to "put his foot
down" early next winter.
SrRPLVS Gold. The Secretary of the
Treasury, Mr. BotTWf5LL,havin got rid of
the office seekers, has now time to attend
to hi? proper business. lie finds that gold
is accumulating far too rapidly in his vaults,
and he is perplexed to know what to do
about it. lie has decided to sell some of it
to relieve the pelthora. This is very well,
but why couldn't Mr. Boctwell wait a lit
tle while. If we should get into a war with
Spain and England he could dispose of his
gold very easily. We should not have a
surplus very long, of any sort, except of
greenbacks, which would multiply at a rate
that would delight Sprague's heart, while
Government bonds would swoop down so
low as to give the Secretary little trouble
on their account.
Alas ! Democract. The Indiana Legis
lature is:it work endeavoring to perfect a bill
by which the revolutionary attempts to break
up a quorum may be frustrated. One of
the bills under consideration provides that
any person elected as a Senator or Repre
sentative, who shall, for the purpose of pre
venting a quorum, fail or refuse to qualify,
or who shall resign for that purpose, shall
be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and sub
ject to a fine of not less than $1,000. The
bill has created a sensation in the Legisla
ture second only to the Constitutional Amend
ment, and the Democratic members may re
sign to prevent its passage.
A Wise Policy. In Iowa (and it ought
to be the policy of all tho States where the
timber is rapidly decreasing) the planting
of trees is encourage J by law. Every acre of
forest trees planted releases taxation for ten
years on one hundred dollars valuation, and
for each acre of truit trees planted, tax is
exempted on fifty dollars valuation for five
years ; the same for shade trees, and hedges
along he highways. There are now maple
forests in several counties, and sugar made
where fifteen years since was nothing but
prairie grass and hazle shrubs.
No Exchange of Securities. Secre
tary Boutwell has issued an order directing
that there shall be no exchange of securities
to ensure the public deposits in national
banks. This order is based upon the grounds
that, as the securities withdrawn are gen
erally more valuable than those deposited,
the security to the government is practically
weakened, and because of the additional
risk incurred in handling and transporting
the securities, besides the time of public of
ficers occupied in attending to these ex
changes. A Good Sign. The manner in which
members of Congress interfere in Federal
appointments, had become of such a char
acter, during the last days of the session of
the United States Senate, as to disgust the
members of that body, and Senator Trutn
ble stated that he would at the net session
offer a bill making it a penal offence for a
member to solicit an appointment. This is
right ; and if be will push such a measure
through he will do a servioe that will secure
for him the thanks of the whole people.
A Fact. People geuerally find it easy to
believe what they wish ; for instance, many
asert that Canada is anxious to be annexed
to this country, yet we have never seen a
man or a paper from what used to be Upper
and Lower Canada that did not deprecate
any such annexation.
Destrcct ve Floods. Last week, Can
ada, New York, and the New Fngland
States were fairly deluged, the waters rising

damage to property has been ooasiderable,

Gorarnment Clerks.
How maDy thousands of active young men
are to-day spending time and money, ''mov
ing heaven and earth," as it were, to get in
to position as Government clerks at Wash
ington. With half the effort they are mak
ing in this way to ruin themselves they
might, in almost any other business, lay the
foundation of future prosperity, respectabili
ty and happiness. Let all such read what
the Chicago Post says on the subject, and
turn from their folly in time. Under the
caption, "Fifty Years a Clerk," that paper
gives the following excellent advice :
"The telegraph tells of the dismissal of a
clerk from the Pastoffice Department, ho
commenced his clerical service in 1819. Fif
ty jears of faithful, brain-dwarfing,' health
stealing, manhood-crushiug work, rewarded
by what? The mere expense of daily living.
No competence for old age, uo home for de
clining years, no neighbors a shriveled
mummy while yet alive an old man adrift!
W hat a picture and what a warning 1 Youths
of America, look upon it and sigh no more
for a Washington clerkship. Turn away
from the Treasury building, the Patent Of
fice building, the Postoffice, and, indeed,
from every one of those granite tombs of
manly, fresh, independent endeavor which
abound in Washington, to the broad, fertile
fields of noble effort, sure to reward you
with competence, self-respect and the re
spect of others, everywhere inviting you lo
enter them. Better break rock upon the
street than becorhe a government clerk.
From the one you may rise to wealth and
honor; from the other 3'ou will inevitably
sink to poverty and contempt."
Severe but Just The New York Sun,
discussing the income tax, thus describes
that portion of highly respectable people
who evade the law : "There is a curious the
ory on this subject of paying taxes to the
Government current among well-to do peo
pie, who would be chocked at anychnrge of
personal immorality. They meet their notes
punctually enough; their landlord never
has to call twice for his rent ; and their
butcher, their baker and their grocer are
satisfied with a similar promptness. "W hen
a tax even is put upon them in such a shape
that they know it cannot be dodged, they
draw their check for it like men. They may
be seen at the Tax Receiver's office in the
Park, waiting in long Hues for a chance to
anticipate the amount assessed by the city
on their real estate,and thus save a few days'
interest. . . . With our form of government,
which is c." rried on by the people and for
the people, we are all partners together; aud
when any one keeps back the ehare due
from him to help defray the national expert
ses, he simply cheats the rest of us out of
enough more than our proper quota to
make up the deficiency. And it makes no
difference whether this comes to pass by
positive lying, or by the silent trickery of
withholding one's name and address from
the Assessors of Internal Revenue. We
therefore charge upon the rich men of the
country who either make no income returi.s,
or make .them untruthfully, the guilt of
swindling their fellow-citizens. They are
morally as much thieves as the picpocket or
the shoplifter."
Marvelous Industry. It is scarcely
necessary at this day to say anything in
praise of Webster Unabridged Quarto
Dictionary, 1840 pages, and 3000 engrav
ings. Having coirte into possession of a
copy of the latest edition, we car not refrain
from expressing our admiration at the mar
velous industry and learning which such a
book must have called into demand. In
the book line, this Dictionary deserves a
place amongst the triumphs of the century.
Tho publishers' part of this ponderous vol
ume has been done with a beauty and sub
stantialncss which also deserves special
commendation. "Reading the Dictionary,"
with this edition of Webster before you, is
exceedingly interesting pastime. A copy
of it must certainly be considered to belong
to the appointments of every intelligent
family. Its cost is $12, but it is aheap at
that price. Moravian.
An Old Rouse. -The oldest house in the
United States retaining its original form is
to bi found in Neponset, Mass. It was built
by John Minot about the year 1640, and is
stil in good repair. The Minot family still
hold possession of it. In 1670 it was at
tacked by three Indians during the absence
of the male portion of the family. A fe
male servant and several children were in
the house. The girl hastily barricaded the
door, and seized a loaded gun. The first In
dian attempted entrance by an open window,
but was met by a shovel of burning coals
from the fireplace, which was thrown in his
face by the girl. Another savage who ap
peared at the window was phot dead ; and
the survivor beat a hasty retreat.
Another Railroad Project. We see
it stated that the Ponnsyl vania Central
Railroad Company are negotiating for Vir
ginia's interest in the Chesapeake and Ohio
Railroad, amounting to $2,000,000, and in
the Blue Ridge Railroad, amounting to$l,
674,000, and that the directory of the Ches
apeake and Ohio Railroad contemplate
making the transfer. The inducement held
out is that the Pennsylvania Railroad Com
pany, if the sales are made, will build a road
!roiu Pittsburgh to Charleston, on the Ka
nawha, or some other point in West Virgin
ia, connecting their road with the Chesa
peake and Ohio Road.
Don't Like It. The Montreal Gazette
publishes Mr. Sumner's speech, crediting
him with being the spokesman of General
Grant. It charges that the Senator, "with
words of peace on his lips," exhibits an in
describable bitterness,and marvellous "word
skill to fire the American heart against
Britain, while he puts thedcuiaud in such a
form that it is impossible it cau be com
plied with." The whole speech, the Gazette
thinks, shows "a desire for an open ques
tion with Great Britain." Very likely. The
auestion is far from being closed.
Kerosene Test. The Scientific Ameri
can gives the following mode of testing ker
osene: Fill a cud with warm water, the
temprature of which is to be brought to one
hundred degrees Fahrenheit, and pour the
oil on the water. Apply flame to the float
ing oil by match or otherwise. If the oil is
unsafe, it will take fire, and its use in the
lamp is dangerous, for it is liable to explode.
But if the oil is safe- aud good, it will not
