great place for coal. So it is; the country.
all round is full of the best:quality of bitu
minous coal, and nine-tenths of all the coal
used along the Ohio and Mississippi rivers
are taken from this market. Lately a great
deal of trouble has been made' by the dig
ger, hytheir periodical strikes. Last week
they demanded five cents per bushel for dig
ging and it 'vas given. They are about to,
strike again for six cents. The action ,of
theso'diggers, if the owners of banks are not
more. watchful, will destroy the coal inter
ests of this section of the country:: Discove
ries and enterprise will open up , new fields
in other quarters, so as to obtain a cheaper
article, and if owners and Manufacturers will
continue to allow aTevery strike, an advance,
they will find the bad effects of it in the end.
A coal digger in ti bituminous bank will put'
out over one hundred bushels per day ; so
coal digging at five cents per bushel, is eer-,
tainly a paying trade. - No. one, three years
ago, - Would ever have supposed that in so

A Spiry' Debate in / the Sennte—Senatortt
Champneys and Clymer on n Rampage
—The Bill Allowing ,Soldiers to VoW
-- -The 'Apportfoutoent-p-Gov--47wettn.
Correspondence of tho Franklin Itepository. .
But little of interest has transpired here
(luring the past week. The Senate preserves
'its deadlock sacredly; and nothing'short of
a Senatorial funeral could it the present
aspect of things until the sue essor of Major
Whitt , is chosen. The Senate is not, how
ever,, as monotonous ns might be supposed.
Eachl session is compelled tO get up some sort_
of a Sensation to put in the time, and - once
in a white the proceedings become thrilling
in inierest. t ' Last week Senators Clymer and •
Champneys 'changed the performance by the
fiercest debate that the Senate has witnessed
for some years. In 'the course of a speech
Senator champneys declared that had the
Democrats triumphed at the last election, it
was given out by their leaders that the troops
'would be' withdrawn from the army to their
respective States by the Democratic Exectt
tive.s,: and ho intimated that Senator Clymer
had given the same pledge to the people.
Mr. Clymet, usually philosophical, lost his
temper and of course his Wits went with it,
and he hurled the falsehood ,diresat the von
erable Senator from ..Lancasttfr and had it
retorted back upon hint ith a zest uncom
mon to a man of nearly four-score years.
Explantitions 'follOwed, and the silver lining
of the Senatorial cloud brightened into the
fulness of suisshi no again. .°
The House instructed the Judiciary:cam
'friittee to report a bill providing for taking
the vote of the soldiers, and the bill is now
before the House. The vote instructing the
committee was nearly unanimous; but when
the decisive , vote comes, there will be .the
fiercest opposition manifested by the Demo.:
cratie leaders. They proft›s to. be for the
pros4ution of the war, but oppose every
measure necessary to give it success ; and th.ly
profeSs to be in favor of allowing the soldiers
to :vete, but will oppose every necessary
measure to enable them to cast their ballots.
They will do it by cowardly quibbles,. and

The Apportionment of the State into legis
lative districts is the absorbing question just
now. A few of the Union mon insist upon
sueltmonstrosities as the association of York 1 1
and Lancaster; Westmoreland and Somerset;
Franklin Fulton and Huntingdon, &c; but
a fair - bill will be matured and passed, giving
the Union strength full juitice and attempt's
-ing nothing 'more. Franklin and, Adams
will probably be 'formed into a Senatorial
district, and each county 'given a member:
They 'have been so long associated Senator
ially that they should not now be separated,
and especially as, they are, and for' nearly
half a century have been, joined in the-con
gressional 'district._ - :Bedford, Fulton and
SoMerset will probablY' form one Assembly
district and elect two members, and Cumber

You will perceive it was a long tithe going,- '
for it , had not reached me when I left home,.

polls in by-gone years, and bitter as has been '
the terrible struggle in ;our.nation,-
ple, just preparing to write up the decree of
divorce from negro slavery, will rush to meet
you with a warmer and more cordial einbrade
than ever. ' .
With proper assistance our State will be
again in full fellowship with her sister Stiites, ,
in four months; and under an anti-slavery „
COnstiiution. "L" have no interest in misrep

this is likewise true, that the More - men in the ;
field the more determination and unity dis;
played, the shorter • the struggle, and the less
suffering and sorrow inflicted.
I do not deny that I love the South; that- •
every blow inflicted on - it agonizes ma; but -
I love my country, and love order, and love
republican institutio&; and would have _all
preserved, and I see but one way to do it. The
