Eipecially in troublous days like„ these,
is the good citizen required at times to
set his face like flint against the lawless
ness;of which civil feuds and revolution
are ever the fruitful parent. If in pre

disorder and anarchy in the,administra

Let; us look at home. Three important
criminal trials were disposed of in our
-courts here last week. In one case a sol
dier had murdered a negro, and laVeyers
of all rihades of politicalbelief were invek - -
ed to prosecute - and defend. Did it es
cape the obsers , .ation of the dallest at
terulant upon the trial; that men of the
Democratic faith .only were deemed by
the defenc.e acceptable furors? And why?
Was it believed that 'iliePublicans would

not,, Pimply because the -victim was a

Atka de kthe :solituniq - of an oath; but
they were inanifestlychoseubecause they
were presumed to-be schooled to hatethe
negro, and upon their prejudices, Opera
tins insensibly upon their re...'usen,' did the
defence rely for safety. Two advocates,
justly eminent for legal learning and for
eloquence and skill in appeals to jnr
id, plead for the life of the prisoner.
Judge Kimmel' lectured the jury on mis-
cegenation, and 'a 'stranger would have
supposed that the S . riglo-saxon race was
trembling in the 'balance for existence,
rather than the life of a culprit; and Mr.
Sharpe rehashed to the jury the common
'spawn of petty treason, by his declaration
that the war had been prostituted from
its original and holy purpose to a war for
the elevation of the negro. And why were
these startling declarations . interwoven
with appeals in behalf of a prisoner, in a
case with which the purposes of the war
and the mingling of races had no more to
do than they have with the revolutions of
the comets? 'Messrs. Sharpe and Kim
mell do not thus strangely talk from force
of habit. Both have made political
speeches but never so-madly wrong—nor
could they to-day be induced to harrangue
a public meeting as they dia. a jury in an
issue of life and death. They spoke as
adVocates, and we are not prepared to say
that they spoke mnwisely as such. They
had sought as ju'rors men whose hatred
for the negro is part of their political
faith, and they aimed to brutalize the jury
by appealing to their prejudices, hoping
to'give them the mastery over reason and
conseienee in the verdict to 'be mule up.
They did not say in so many words that
the killing of a negro was little Or no
crime; that he was becoming quite too
important in this country ; that he would
soon be upon equality with. the whites ;
and therefore it was time that the white
man's hand should be against him even
unto death—for that would have made an
honest jury revolt; but they sought to
carry the conviction. imperceptibly :to
their minds through their prejudices,tru st
ing to inflamed prejudices' to magnify
doubts, and magnified doubts to procure
Equally forcible was the illustration of
the correctness of our premises in two
other cases. A 'soldier had killed a citi
zen—they were of different political faith,
and the deed had been committed on elec
tion evening and in a political fracas.
The same rule that dictated Democratic
jurors in the case, before alluded to, de
-1 manded: Republican jurors in this one,
. and political feeling ran high throughout
the trial, especially amongst thosewho
live in the locality where the alleged of
fence was committed. The case was tea-
ken from the jury by the judge on the
ground that the testimony of the Com
monwerdth could not be complete, beCause
of the, failure to make a post mortem- ex
' amination of the body ; but had it gone
to the jury, ,we should have had an as
sortment of stars and stripes and fourth
of July orations in behalf of the prisoner,
in strange contrast with the political
speeches Of the counsel. Were Republi
can jurors chosen in this case . , because
they, were wanting in honesty or respect
for the laws, or in their appreciation of
the solemnity of their oath? , Not at all.
<They were chosen because their prejudi
ces might, it was hoped, be turned strong
ly in favor of one 3vho was enlisted in the
defence of his country, and thus cloud the
reason to ilkagnify or create doubts to jiis
tify an '-acquittal. "In another case the
Democratic faith was in demand again.
A charge of treason had provoked a blow
that maimed the prosecutor for life, and
again vas political prejudice invoked to
shield_ a wrong. Again did Sharpe for
get that this is a government of law, in
his:speech to the jury, hoping thereby to
make prejudice do, what unclouded rea
son must forbid; hut in all cases we be
lieve, jurors shamed the novel assump
tions' of counsel by doing their duty.
—We have alluded to these facts not
for the purpose of censuring counsel or
jukes; but to point out clearly to. all
classes of eitizent3—to men of all political
faith—that there is danger of growing
looseness- in the ;administration of Our
laws, and of necessity a corresponding
warfare upon the order and safety of so
ciety. Lawyers do not appeal to preju
dice where prejudice does not exist ; they
donotdeliver political harrangues to juries
unless they have good reason to believe
that political prejudice may be made
stronger than their sense of justice; and
until it is discarded by all good citizens;
the enforcement of the laws demanded
inflexibly, and the administration of jus
tice regarded as too sacred for political or
other, polluting Partialities or hatreds to
mingle with it, we shall find a growing ten
dency to disorder and crime, and even the
-better class of men ma-be•made insensi

ERN PEICSSYLVANIA RAILROAD.
A bill is now pending in the legislature
incorporating the Connellsville and South
ern Pennsylvania Railroad Company,'
which authorizes the construction of a
railiOad from Connells*ille to the Mary
land State line, and alsci - to construct a
road "from any point on said line to con
nect with any road or roads in the Sus
quehanna Valley or west thereof, and to
make such branches 'as the directors may
deem expedient and necessary,_ in the
Southern tier of counties ofPennsylvania,"
&q, The capital stock is fixed at ten
millions, with power to increase as to the
directors may seem needful. The cor
porators •named are leading citizens of
Somerset, Bedford, Pulton and Franklin
counties, several prominent officers of the
Ctimberland Valley and four• leading cap
italists in New York. .
A twin-bill resumes the franchises,
conferred by several .supplements, upon
the Pittsburg and Cotmellsville Railroad
Company, authorizing that corporation
to construct any lilies of railroad south
wardly•or eastWardly from'Connellsville,
and provides for compensation to that
company for any work they may have
done on any of such lines. The forfeiture
is based, as set forth in the' preamble of
the bill, upon the misuse of the franchises,
by the failure of the Pittsburg and Con
nellsville to construct the lines authorized
—nine years having elapsed without such
progress having been made as warrants

the corporation now holding thefran
—We trust that this bill will pass. It
is clearly demanded by the growing trade
of the State, and especially by the wants
of the southern 'counties. Of the ability
and purpose of the parties desiring the
- act of incorporation to construct the road
promptly, we are fully persuaded; and a
glance at the corporators named—nearly
all of them living on a direct line from
Chambersburg west—points conclusively
to the route the main road would lie cer
tain to take. It would doubtless make
the junction with the Cumberland Valley
at this point, and thus make the Pitts
burg and Connellsville a direct feeder to
the commerce of our own State instead
of cleaving the wealth of south-western
Pennsylvania to Baltimore. It would at
once develop the vast wealth of the south
elm counties immediately west of us, and
give us new and vastly cheaper avenues
for lumber and coal, besides , enhancing
the value of every acre of land in this
section of the State. Now that the lead
ing railroads of the State have evinced a
determination to 'construct this road, the
legislators from southern. Pennsylvania,
and all who desire to' divert the vast trade
',of the southern route to Philadelphia, or
p Baltimore over Pennsylvania improve
intent's, should promptly give the neces
sary authority, and three years more will
see the iron horse. singing his wild song
lover the Alleghenies by three leading
'routes—all bearing their commerce to the
great emporium of our State—audyearing,
new fields and towns as if by magic on
their lines. • Now is the time to secure
this vital improvement for this part of
the State, and we earnestly hope to`record
the'passme of the bill before the cloie of
the present session.'
CONGRESS AND THE CURRENCY.
Gold reached :SS per cent. premium in
its upward flight on-Thursday last, and .
then rebounded to 76 the same day, clos
ing at nearly the lowest figure, after a
most feverish grapple with the bulls and
bears ()f the stock beard. Since then its ,
tendency is to recede; tint it is painfully
manifest that there must be some substan
tial remedy promptly applied or it may,
upon any partial reverse of the union
army, bound over 200, and entail upon
the people all the grave evils which attend
the advance of gold. We do not regard
prohibitory bills, such as Mr. Stevens has
proposed in Congress, as at all equal to
the task of arresting speculation in gold.
However stringent their provisions or se
vere the penalties, the gambling in gold
will go in ;'and public confidence will be
impaired rather than strengthened by such
legislative restictions upon business,
whether it is ink point of fact and morals
legitimate or not.- No amount of declar
atory enactuients will effect the relative
price of• gold and paper dollars—both
will be measured, by the intinisic value
they possess; and the true and only
remedy it is • to make the government cur
reney-tio Safe that• its depreciation cannot
be based upon any rational argument.:
Systeinatie,. thorough and stern taxa
tion is the only remedy against success
ful gambling in gold; and if ,Congress
still, with the experience of the list 'air
tY days, does not appreciate this stubborn
truth, then must ,we prepare for a degree
of suffering not as yet dreamed of in this \
war. , Every intelligent citizen knows
that the resources of the treasury are now
entirely unpqual to the heavy load of debt
upon it; and -the immense circulation of
currency is without ' anything like' ade
quate provi4an for its redemption. These.
facts_ ,invite , the sordid and speculative to
toy With gold almost at will; and aided
as they a re .by a powerful political party,
-whose leaders steadily decry the curren,
cy, and flood the country with grave and
plattaible prophecies of early rain, they
are enabled' to advance gold and with it
all-the ilecii:sarit! , of lifesaltuoitwhenevt r
it is their interest to do so.-, And it must
not be forgotten by Congress, that the
steady advance of geld pioditces a cor
responding steady distrastin the carrell-
cy and the, finances of the government,
and 'Unless an effectual remedy is prompt

The Man who resists taxation is either
coward,or traitor. It cannot be done on
'the plea that taxes -are onerous on the
,people, for the people are now paying - in-
directlyby the needless adVance in,prices
of both necessaries and luxuries, more
than four fold What would sustain our
currency at par or nearly so, if collected
directly for tbe maintenance of our credit.
And inflated prices fall just where the
burdens of the government should not
fall. The fabrics' and other articles essel
tial to the Poorer classei have advanced
enormously; and thus their shard of tax
ation is, now beYondalljust proportion—
while if anlple taxes were imposed judi
ciously upon the luxuries of life, and upon
the profitable products, the currencywould
be restored to a fair standard ; govern,.
ment credit would be placed beyond , all
peril, and the poorer classes would be re
lieved of the present crushing prices for
the necessaries of life. Taxation is there
fore thegreat measure of economy for the
people, for the disastrous effects of depre
ciated currency fall directly upon th€m
with relentless fury ; and we appeal to
Congress to rise to the full measure of_the
great issue, and save the people, the cur
rency and the credit of the government,
by making OuireVenues abundantly large
to sustain, beyond all reasonable doubt,
the obligationEi of the Nation.,'
We, do not appeal to clowns like Car
roth and the abler and worse men'who
demand that the' government shall pay :
gold, and yet refuse to sustain any system
of revenue; who with ill-concealed hy
pocrisy demand a vigorous prosecution
of the war, and yet refuse,to vote for any
pleasure to increase the army, and who
declaim loudly for the Maintenance of the
Union, and yet ;rush to the sanction of
nten - who thank. God that the rebels are
not, and cannot be subdued ; but we do
appeal to the intelligent and faithfalmen
of Congress; of' whatever political desig
nation, - who sincerely ;desire to - preserve
our Nationality, and to lesSen, as far as it
is in human power, the terrible exactions
of war, , to meat the question of taxatio
promptly, and avert i the -existing 3 ,
threatening eVils by planting our cuusii
cy, upon a basis Iwhich treason in every
guise will not dare to assault. This done,
the people will be: relieved of the present
'crushing prices for the' necessaries of life,
and the • Repuhlic will' emerge from this
sa,ng,uina4 . snuggle ,with ito finances as
firm as the rock of Freedom itself.
