It is not worth while for our neighb ,, r
to attempt such outrageous falsification
in the very face of the record. The con
gressional report shows that Mr. Banks
made no such declaration. A member
by the naive of Barksdale very absurdly
asked Mr. Banks whether he believed
the ne , ro equal to the white man, &c.
Mr. - Banks replied that lie understood it
to be a natural law that if two races were
brought into intimate relations,the infe

await the developement of the future be

THE LIQUOR LAW.
An animated debate is in progress in
the Ilou , e of Representatives at Harris
burg, on the subject of repeiding the
restraini . ng liquor law. The opponents
of the law, although in a decided majori
ty in the House, are by no means of one
opinion in regard to the course of action
to be pursued One section of them
are in favor of the unconditival repeal
of the law and a return of the old license
system ; while the others oppose the .re
peal of the present law unless a more
stringent license system than formerly is
adopted. The bill before the House is
for the repeal of the law, and the debate
is on the question of re-committing it to
the proper committee with instructions
to report immediately a stringent license
The members generally seem to
regard it as incumbent upon them to
"define their positions" on this ticklish
subject. A number of eloquent and
lengthy speeches were made last week by
leading members, on both sides of the
question, and it is evident that a crowd
of others intend to be heard before a vote
is pressed. The speeches of Mr. Morris,
of Philadelphia, and McCombs, of Law
rence, against the repeal, and those
of Messrs. McCarthy, of Philadelphia,
and Wright, of Luzerne, in favor of re
pealing the law, have so far attracted the
most particular attention.
fictitious on the subject have as yet
c,iine only from one side—the friends of
oprit/ keeping a steady stream of them
pouring into both Ilouses day by day.
But few remonstrances against repeal
have been presented as yet, thouali it is
said the friends of the law are wikito ,
up and'mean to make themselves speedi
ly heard. One petition, thinly
from citizens of Lancaster countv, in fa
vor of repeal, was presented on Wednes
day last. This monster petition of course
made a sensation, but Mr. :McCombs
girve a fatal blow to its potency next day
by unrolling it before the House and
pointing out that several columns of the
names were exact repetitions of the oth
ers, and that some of the signatures had
been written Jinn., five and six times

In the Senate a new liquor bill has
been presented by Mr. Wilkins, which
is intended to supersede the present law.
ft provides for two classes of licensed
houses—the first to be allowed to vend
spiritous and malt liquors at rates of li.
cense varying from $5O up to $l.OOO a

above all others, gave umbrage to the

Nothing can more strongly illustrate
the progressive tendency of Southern
demands than the fact of Southern repre

twairtst this speech. In company with
the whole body of the Stiuthern repre

edly, as he says, to extend the Missouri
Compromise line to the Pacific. Then
it was.the most extreme demand of the
South, and in order to vote for it, Mr.
Richardson was obliged to array himself
in dikposition t) the great body of his
fellow representatives of the North.

a horse and sleigh, dviven by an old gentle
man named Minnich, living near Newville,
came in collision with the passenger cars, a
mile west of town where the rail road crosses
the turnpike. The horse had just got on to
the track as the cars came up and was instant
ly caught by the cow catcher of the locomo

the sleigh broke and thus prevented it from
being dragged along, or a fatal casualty might
have occurred tc Mr. Minnich and his wife who

THE OLDEN TIME.—Vie are indebted
to an esteemed friend in Shippensburg for
a copy of The Eagle or Carlisle Ilerald, dated
Wednesday, October 28, 1801 ; Volume 11 1
NO. 109. This shows that the herald was
established about theist of October, 1799.-
I'n 1801 it was published by John P. Thomp
son, who appears also to have been Post Mas
ter in Carlisle at the same time. Whether
he was the original projector and proprietor
of the paper we are not informed. The Her
ald of 1801 was a little dark, dingy sheet
about one third the size of the present Herald,
and the price of subscription was $2 a year
Think of that, you who oow get our large and
well filled sheet'for $1,50 in advance !
In its early days the Herald appears to
have belonged to that old apd respectable
party, the F'edera'l party. Frotn , the number
before us we learn that the Democrats swept
the State pretty clear in the election of 1801,
as they have occasionally done since The
party feeling of the time seems to have been
exceedingly bitter. The Federalists of that
day were not a little indignant that a foreign
er like Albert Galindo, was, in the .'language
of the Herald,,".thought fitter than any Amer
ican to be placed at the head of our finances."
it is an instructive commentary upon this
state of feeling that, before his death, the
venerable Albert Gallatin was its decidedly
repudiated by the modern Democratic party
as he formerly was by the ancient Federalists.
The advertisements o,f the old Herald show
.the enterprise of thtlyay in rather amazing
ebutrast with the itt-aheaditiveness of our
times. For insti, a new line of Stages
was adverti4ed torus to Baltimore in /no
days, leaving Carlisle every Saturday morning
at 4 o'clock• and arriving in Baltimore on
Sunday evening! Fifty years have passed by
and we can now get to Baltimore half a
day. Of course dire old Herald of 1801 has
no telegraphic despatches in it. The foreign
news published in the Herald of , Oct. 2.Bth,
we iltid was received In the previous' month
of August. Smintich for the olden slime and

LAND AWCIATION OP COLISI,E.— -
We learn that a number of enterprising gen
tlemen of this borough have associated them
selves together, for the purchase of Western
lands, under the title of the " Land Association
of Carlisle." We believe the object of the
originaWs of clAjs_p.roject is, to form a corn.
pony of o n e hundred individuals, each member
of which shall contribute to its, funds, weekly,
for the space of five years, the sum of fifty
cents. This money will be appropriated from
time to time, as the Association may direct,
to the purchase of public lands in the different
Western States and Territories, and at the
expiration of that period the whole will be
avid or divided among the members. The
company will he regu'arly organized, with a
President, Managers, Treasurer, Agents, &C.
We believe these are the main features of the
new project . ; but, as we have our information
merely from rumor, we may be mistaken in
some particulars. We hear that several gen
tlemen of capital and enterprise. have taken
'hold of the matter, and in their hands, we
feel persuaded, the project will not be per
mitted to fall through.
This is certainly one of the most feasible,
and, we think, will prove one of the most pro
fitable enterprises ever undertaken by any
portion of our citizens; and the wonder is,
why it was not embarked in years ago. These
Associations are quite numerous in the East
ern States, and in moat instances they have
realized enormous profits, besides furnishing
cheap and comfortable homes to thousands of
poor families. The investment is a sate and
certain one, and we wishtthe new Company
