PUBLICATION-OF Tin Laws —Already, we
have'repeated the embarrassment growing out
of-the unavoidable delayln the Imbliestionof
the lawl heretofore, and complaints are befog
made on all sides that the Legislature failed to
provide for the pliblication of general and lo
cal lawsin the Several newspapers of the Slate
having the largist circulation. The subject
Was not fully understood or appreciated by-the
last Legislature, ir alaw to this effect would
base been adapted. In view Of the failure
with:li resulted tram this want of understand
ing, we now suggest.that Mir cotemporaries in
the different counties give the snhject their at
tention as the nominating conventions meet.
Let it be understood between thepeepleend the
candidates for the Legislature, that a law pi
aiding for the pnblictation of local and-general
laws of the State, must be pasted. This will
insure the necessary legislation, by which the
knowledge of all laws can only be attained.—
Exchenye. - '
The above is the substance of a number o r
articles which have appeared in different pa
pers of the State since the adjournment of the
Legislature. So far as we are able to judge by•
our exchanges, the sentiment of the press . on
the subject, with . the probable. exception of
that of Philadelphis w is nearly unanimous. It
will be remembered, that a, bill providing for.
the publication of the laws was prepared by a
'committee of the Lake Etie Press Association,
and introduced into the last Legislature. its
provisions were as fair as It was possible to
make them, and the bill was wholly zinobjecr
amiable in a partisan sense, as it provided Tor
the printing in papers of both political creeds.
Yet in spite of these facts, it failed to be'
adopted, and we cannot help but think that
the fault lies as much at the doors of publish
ers as at those of the membersof the Legis
lature. Although Every newspaper man in the
State was informed of its introdnotioa, and
urged to enlist his individual effo•ts in its fa
vor, comparatively few of them paid any at
tention to the matter, and its fate is therefore
nothing more than we anticipated. We have'
good authority for the statement that if Halt
&donee - Wee men had gone to Harrisburg
and united' their services in favor of the-bill,
it would have passed readily. Even with the
indifferent spirit shown,- it lacked only one
vote of passage in the Senate, and not mare
titan's dozen in the House. The most - active
of its supporters were Senator
, Wallace - and
Gen. McCreary, and 'it is a duty which the
press of the State °weal° these distinguished
gentlemen that their labors in behalf of the
bill should be kaolin and remembered,
The friends of the measure do not intend
that their ectleav'ors shall end with the none
costal attempt at the last tension. The bill
will be re-introdaced at the next Legislature,
and in the meantime it should be the object of
its supporters to concentrate all the elements
of success pdssible to obtain. Tho piablialfers .
of the State have the matter in their own
hands, if they only choose to r oue the influence
of their position. In every onnty, a pledge
should be secured by the editor's of the domi
nant party, from their candidate for the Leg.
islatnre, that he wilt give,his vote in favor of
the bill. By pursuing this course, and follow
ing it up with a very little attention after the
Legislature meets, we feel that we can.confi
dently predict its passage, by a nearly unani :
MOU9 vote, at an early stage of the session.
There con be no doubt that the people gener
ally favor the measure, and If it were bhught
properly before them, the expressiOn hilts be-
half would be such as would ria7:failto.con
vitfce-thepoliticians which side theirfntereste
_require them to adopt. -
The Meadville liqe „Vieen, centre' organ of
the tiadicals in Crawford, has opened its bat
teries upon Senator Lowry With a vigor that
will give reneweToonfolence -to his enemies
in the party ranks in this county. As a dis
interested "looker on in Venice.' we cannot
help but feel that the sati-Lowry Radicals
here are just now sadly in need of assistance,
and as our sympathies always run - in favor of
the weak side, we welcome the cio-operation
of the Repu6lican with unfeigned gratifies-
'don. The contest has now assumed a trian
rollr phase which wiliadd 0 its interest,
and we shall spare no pains to keep our read
ers fully-posted up in all its diversifications.
The Republican's article derives considerable
importance from the fact of its being the cc
kciowledged central organ of the Crawford
county Radicals, and we, therefore, transfer
it bodily to our columns:
"Lowry.—Senator Lowry' declares himself
in favor of the new County project, and prom
ises if he has an opportunity that he will do
all in his power to secure the required legis
lation. Ile has served six years in the Sen
ate, and just now awakens to the importance
of this project. It is a little curious, too,
that those who are most anxious to have him
returned, arc most clamorous against Mr.
Chase because of his support of the new coun
ty scheme. If it is right for Lowry to sup
port a division of our county, it is certainly
not wrong for Chise to sustain the measure.
Then, again, Lowey, after years of bitter hos
tility to the Erie Canal Company, has sud
denly become the enthusiastic, chosen cham
pion of that organization. Ile wants the canal
enlarged for ships, gm. - All very well, but
who opposes it ? The legislation authorizing
the enlargement was had at the recent ses
sion. It met with no opposition. •
'pony can go ahead with the enlargement if
they have the money, or they may prosecute
their plan to got_Congress to make au ap
propriation, but the matter should not be
made a hobby for the special benefit of any
office-seeking demagogue.
Crawford county is entitled to the Senator.
Any candidate our people may present will be
quite as competent to look after all matters of
legis'ation affecting the interests of the Dis
trict as Mr. Lowry, and, to use his own °lan
guage, he cannot get the Senatorship "without
a fight." Ile has had the office six years.
He should be content to retire on hie laurels.
We recognize his greatness and fully appre
ciate his distinguished services.. But the
State and District will no doubt survive his
retirement. ,The new county and the canal
expansion will not sialTA.r because of his ab.
Bence from the legislative halls. His "cause"
will not be overlooked—not a bit.. And be
sides he may preyent a "fight."—and .surely
such a peaceful result would be condoling to
his pions, amiable soul.

Thursday evening, the 30th inst.. under . the
auspices of the Whittier Literary Association,
and again'call the attention cif our feeders to
it, in the hope that they will not allow it to
escape their memories. The lateness of the
season caused the lecture committee some hes
itation. before making the engagement with
Dr. Chapin, but the urgent desire of many of
our citizens to hear' him induced them at
length to undertake the experiment, and it
should now be the zealous endeavor of all his
admirers to see that they are greeted with a
liberal audience. The Reverend gentleman is
admittedly the finest pulpit orator in the

The dull times in the oil region are rapidly
depopulating that locality. It is estimated
that one-half the residents have left for more
