Talcs nml Anecdotes. ,
The last Sunhury Osr-ette soya, we fill no inlc
ret in the success of the democratic party, because
we hnve utilised "tales and anecdotes" just before
the election, and say nothing of the "reign of lorror,"
and "Buckshot war." And yet strange aa it may
appear, Mr. Youngman haa devoted about one half
of hit last pnpei to us. Did lie intend to nply to
the tales or the anecdotes! Was it hi design to
make war upon them, aa L)in Quixotte did upon
the wind-mills t The readers of the Gazstlo have

the editor big ins to think ihry can swallow uothing
The truth is, we can give our Traders as much,
if not more politics than he daes, and have room
enough left for a tale or two, foieign ncw, .See, and
at least score of anocdoies. If he docs not like
tales, we will give him this week an " Irish Story"
to digest. At the some time, we would advise him
to tuke care that his "whig storied" do not prove to
hi in another rope of sand " that some divil may
throw in his eye.
We are pleased to see, that Gatlord Chcrch,
Esq., the able and talented reprrsenlative of Craw
ford county, in llio lust Legislature, has been riomr
nated almost unanimously, for reelection, by the
democracy of that county. He pursued the same
course with our own rcpicsentative, C. W. Hegins,
Esq., in sustaining the credit of the state, and ac
tively supported the fearless conduct of eur patrio
tic Gevernor. His course has liecn promptly and
honorably approved of by the staunch democracy
of Crawford, notwithstanding he too was branded
by the Barnburners and Destructives as a trai.or

The Extra Pay.
Mr. Editor : In your pajier of the 8th inrst.,
2 observed under the editoriul head, some remarks
'with the' caption oMExtra Pay," iu which you
pretend to give the vote upon allowing daily pay
to the members during the recess. Your remarks
appear to be particularly intended to operate to the
prejudice of Charhs W. Hegins, our late member.
You, however, with apparrnt candor aud sincerity,
offer the use of your column to Mr. Hegins, to re
ply to the charges you make against him. Sup
posing that you would extend the same privilege
to his friends, I ahull endeavor to enter into a brief
explanation of an error which you, as well as
other editors have fallen into more perhaps, from
your not having the Journal in your pots, ssion, arid
therefore dependant on other sources for your infor
mation, than from intentional misrepresentation.
The hiw, under which the members reccivid
their pay, gives them daily pay from the lime of
their meeting, until the final adjournment. So that
the daily pay of the members would continue du
ring a temporaiy adjournment, without an action
on the part of the Legislatuie.
The question then was, not whether they would
vote themselves sy.fcr the law already give it to
them, but whether i!iy wottld relinquish that pay
to which they wore vulilled by law. The vote
which you publish, was not up in thut question as I
shall show.
It will be lememlsrrcd, that the Legislature bi
Journrd sine die, on the 16th of April, having failed
to pass the important public bi Is, which the public
interests imperiously required. The Governor
calleJ a special session of the Legislature on the
17lh of April, by proclamation issued the previous
evening in pursuance of which, they met on that
day. The members were all ready to depart to their
homes, and many of them had alieady left Harrit
liurg At soon as they met, a resolution was oiTcr
cd lor a temporary adjournment and an extra sue
si m. That resolution was losi, Mr. Hegins voting
gainst it. After some time spent in ineffectual
attempts made to pass the Mil men ioncd in the
Governor's proclsmaiton, another resolution was in
troduced for an extra session, aud crried, Mr. Ho
gina voting cgt.i-ani it. They met ugaiu ia the
afternoon, after an extra session had been determ
ined upon, when Mr. Drodhoad offered the follow
ing resolution :
" Resolved, That the daily pay f the memlrs
nhall be suspended during the temporary adjourn-tur-nt
of (he Legislature." (Journal, Vol. 1, page
To prevent the passage, of this resolution, an ad
journment was moved and carried, aud upon a call
of the yeas and nays, they stood, yeas 30, naya 35,
Mr. Heg'ms aotmg against an adjournment. Jour
nal, page 1084.) Here, upon the thrc.-kdd of the
mailer, we Cud Mr. Hegim not euly voting against
an extra a ssion, but voting against an adj tuumeiil,
which adj lurnmeiit prevent d tho passage of the
above resolution, showing Lis with to reiiuqu sli
the daily pay dating the adjournment.
f)u the 18:b ef May, alter the Legislature had
again met, (Journnj, page 1671,) the Houso re
solved itself into a committee of the whole on the
jtbtve resolution of Mr. Bioadhead. After some
lime aihQt iu the committee, the speaker resumed
the chair, and the chairman repoited irogresa, and
asked leave to sit again. Leave was granted, and
a motion was mule that the committed have leave
to sit sguin on the Fourth of July. This would of
course, defeat the resolution. This motion was
lost, Mr. J leg Ins voting against it, (Jourual, page
1071.) A matin n was then made that ihe commit
tee sit on the SOth of June, (Journal, page 1071.)
This would a!o have defeated the resolution. Mr.
Hegins voteJ against this -loo. The committee waa
then refused leive to sit again, and the resolution
came hi fire the House. Mr. Nill move. I to strike
Utall after the word resolved, and insert iu lieu of
jt, the following, viz: "By lUo Senate cVc. Tht
the members of the legislature shall not receive per
cUem allowance from the a.'j urnm-ut on the 17th
tf Apiil last, until the 12th of May 1810, nor shall
they receive mil. age allowance for going to Hani
burg aud returning to their plueis of aboje."
IfJJ'J'l J.'L'J'.'
On tliis motion, the yeas and nays were called,
yeas 69, naya IB. Mr. Hegins voting for it, (Jour
nal, page 1073.) After tho resolution was
thus amendoj, a motion Was maJo to postpone in
definitely. .
This motion, if carried, Would haVe defeated the
resolution. It waa lost, Mi. Hegins voting against
it, (Journal, page 1075.) A motion was then
made to postpone it to the 0th of July, which Would
be after the legislature had adjourned. Mr, Hegins
voted against that. A motion was then made to
refer the whole matter to the committee on accounts
for their decision, which was cat ried, yeas 50, nays
40, Mr. Hegins voting against it, (Journal, page
1075.) So throughout the whole course of the af
fair, Mr. Hegina by hia votes, showed his willing
ness to relinqui h his pay during the adj .urnment,
and his roadiness to decido the matter at once. Tho
reference of the resolution to the committee on ac
counts, disposer! of the resolution, and it did not
come before the house again. Gn the last aftor
noon tf the session, the committer on accounts
reported the pay list of the members, with tho usual
resolution, via ;
u ResolveJ, That the speaker draw his warrant
en Ihe state treasury, for the sura set opposite to
their names respectively."
The yeas and nays which you published in your
paper, of the 8th inst., was upon the passage of this
resolution, and not upon the question ol relin
quishing hia pay duiing ilia adjournment. Mr. He
gins, had in every vote he gave, voted in favor of
relinquishing pay during the adjournment. Tho
whole matter had been relorred to the committee on
accounts agninst his consent, and the question pre
sented was, whether they will take any pay at all
Mr, Hegins voted for taking his pay during the
time ha was at Harrisburg.and if the committee on
accounts had included with it pay, which he by
his votes had shown a willingness to relinquish, it
waa nut bis fault for ho had voted against referring
it to the committco.
Good effects of the Sub-Treasury.
The 8ub-Treasury Bill, so much denounced by
the opposition, received the signature of the Presi
dent and became the law of the laud on the Fourth
of July. That feature of "the bill which is so hor
rible in the eyes of the whigs, and which exacts
gold and silver in payment of the public dues, has
been enforced in all tho ahinplastct-riddcn Mates
since the middle of October last. It is by the oper
ation of this section that its opponents say 'he
price of agricultural produce is to be broug!' dewn
to almost notliiua, and the country to bj ruined

whiira indulge in the vilest misrepresentations, and
what poor judges they are as to what effect any
public measure will produce, let ua take a alight
glance at both the past and the present, and see
whether the change has been far the butter or

Instead of tho " ruin" which was to follow tho

TO Tllil 11 III.IC,
In suhmiuin to the pti' lie the li-rt nfjin' ers of
the "Americarr," it may be deemed incumbent on
us at ne -es-Ary arid pniier to make a few observa
tions in relation to the establishment of this press,
and the course which its conductors int. nd 10 pur

h .a been truly styled tho oge of improvement,
which no power un earth can arrest in ita progiess,
The applicalicn of steam lo ilia various purposes
of an, and tho more recent discovery of smelt

tcrpr.zo aud indu-try, which may well excite thu
astonishment of those who are unacquainted with
her inexhaustible depositee uf co .1 and iron.

years since was a aolit try wild, untrodden by the

population. The town of tibaniotift located in the

lions, we, in common with many of pur iiiont cs

rendered highly ser;pb.'ble lo the community. The
progress of imntosvim nt and the rapid increase of
