A. F. BARNE9,
TUESDAY, APRIL 8, 1873
An act- has recently passed the Legisla
ture creating an Insurance-Department in
this State. •
The decrease of the national, debt during
last mouth was $1,644,0&8 t)7, and during
the falar years of Grant's first administra
tion the Accrease was 8368,082,559 48.
It'is reported that Governor Osborne, of
Kansas; finds great difficulty in selecting a
successor to ex-Senator Caldwell. The fact
is said to be that the Governor himself
ants tile position; but he can't find a pre
cedent fora man appointing himself to of-
t;ce. Really, the position is very embarrass-.
'mg. Suppose the modest Governor resigns
his present office, and tries his luck with the
next Executive of lriis State.
It has been said that the thaws - •.neeived
but not brought forth are translate' to the
moon. If this is true, then Mr. P•ter Her
dic knows where to look for " 3linnequa
county." It is very certain, at any rate,
that be won't find it on the map of Penn
\sylvania. When his bill reached the Sen
).,te it.came to a sudden end, just as we sup
posed it would. It is creditable to the up
per honse that the monster was so promptly
throttled, and highly disgraceful to the low
er that it passed by even the small majority
The two hotises of the Legislature hav
ing disagreed on the general appropriation
bill last week, a conference committee was
appointed to report a compromise. There
teas considerable trouble in coming to ,an
agreement,- the• apple of discord being the
tive hundred - dollars extra pay for 'each
member of . the Legislature inserted by the
House and struck out by the Senate. The
conferees on the part of the Senate report
ed to that body that the House was inclined
to adhere to the grub, whereupon the Sen
ate voted unanimously to stick to their res
olution Co strike it out. Those Representa
tives who faVoreil this job may thank the
Senate for saving them from political hari
- The bill as finally agreed upon ap
?:ropriates seventy thousand dollars to be
divided among the State Normal Schools by

Last week Governor Fiartranft vetoed a
bill extending the time for the payment of
the enrollment tax on private bills passed
by the Legislature. The act affected over
sixteen hundred private laws, some of them
passed as long ago as lno, and the effect of
the veto is to kill them all unless the enroll
ment tax on each one is paid by the first of
next month. The amount due the State
from this source is very large, and, as the
Governor says, it is hard to see why, this
tax, wh:oli draws-no interest, should be ex
tended from year to year for the benefit of
speculators, when all taxes on the indifstry
of the people , must be paid promptly, uiider
penalty of a large fine in the •shape of in
terest. , 'This VetQ is probably the most
sweepi g one to be found anywhere in the
history of legislation; but it is strongly
grounded in reason and good sense, and will
receive the hearty indorsement of the peo
ple at large.
The Democrat permits some foolish corres
pondent to make the aasertiou that " the
Reptiblican party is responsible for" the
salary-steal. We fear this poor fellow hasn't
seen the vote on that question yet. But if
his favorite , journal ever plucks up heart to
print the yeas a - nd nays, he will find that in
the Senate less than one-half the Republi
cans voted for the measure, while just two
thirds of the Democrats voted the same
nay. In the House, be will learn that about
one-third of the Republicans voted for the
steal, While a majOrity of the Democrats
+-aid aye to the scandalous job. Outside
the halls of Congress, the only papers that
_undertake to excuse this piece of rascality
are Democratic ones. In yiew of all these
facts, we submit that the dunce °who ex
posed himself in last week's Democrat will
do well to refrain from further efforts in
that line _until he has consulted, the late
Democratic member from this district as to
where the responsibility lies.
Of course our readers understand that we
do not always agree with 'the opinions set
forth by our correspondents, although we
seldom express our dissent. The AGITATOR
honors and welcomes independent' thought
from whatever quarter, being well assured
t hat the most healthful state of public opin
ion results from the agitation of original
ideas rather than from the stagnation of a
strict political and social "orthodoxy."—
For this reason we print in full this week
the letter of our Washington correspondent,
while we differ most radically from the first
third of it. It seems to us a very weak ef
fort to find an excuse after the fact for the
salary-steal. The idea that members who
wouldn't attend to their duties when they
received $5,000 a year and mileage will do
so when they get $7,500 a year is decidedly
too " thin" to deceive anybody. But even
if there was anything in this notion, it wo'd
not justify the grabbing of $5,000 'extra
pay by members of the last Congress at 'the
close of the term during which, according
to "C. M.," many of them had been neg:
letting their public-duties in pursuit of pri
vate gain. The simple fact is; there was no
reason for the grab; and none that
would hold water. can be invented for it
now. The robbers,.with the unscrupulous
Ben ;littler at their head, wanted the public
money, to which they were no more entitled
than Our correspondent, and they took it,
even'going so far as to violate one of their
own express rides in their eagerness to grab
the swag. Having lined their own pockets
ld done what they could to co.crupt the
morals of the country, these grabbers and
their friends Will show discretion by keep
in:: very quiet. The most adroit special
pleading will never convince the " plain
people" that the men Who fobbed 4:3,000 of
the public funds for work for which they
had already - been amply paid were either
honorable or honest. Decent men of all
parties have marked them, and will remem
ber them with contempt.; and those rho
would indite excuses for the robbery may
reflect with benefit upon the tragical fate of
'" Poor Tray."

9f Congressmen's salaries, bad as it seems,
may be of great advantage in the future.—

On Friday last Charles Manley was bang
ed at .11exandria, Ta , in the presence of
about five hundred favored persons—a
crowd of several hundred more having as
sembled outside of the jail yard, where
they could hear the interesting thud of the
victim when the trap was taken f rum under
his feet and he was swung between heaven
and earth. It would Fe em that this exam
which was fully described m our two
evening papers long before Friday M i ght,
should have struck terror into the minds of
would-be-murderers, but on the contrary
the very reverse appears, to be the fact.—
The law deliberately takes the life of a pris
oner, and the assassin speedily follows the
exam 1e thus set. in high places. - On the
same night, Perhaps before midnight, Mr.
Frank Hahn, a cattle drover of Woodstock,
Va., while returning home from a• trip to
Baltimore where he had sold a drove ut cat
tle, was attacked and robbed by one or more
assassins in a lonely place known as Armo
ry Square, not far from the Baltimore and
Potanme Railroad-depot in this city, and
brutt'lly murdered; his face being rendered
alms st unrecognizable by the terrible
wont. da inflicted upon it, and his brains
were round oozing out on the ground.
This is, the seventh murder of 11,e o , ,t
twelve mouths in our Distiict. :.:or

horror goes on. It is suppota•d th ~,,•
murderers of Hahn are in the way "i

writing the proofs are not fully gathered
about suspected parties.
POSTAL CARS TO BE CONTINUED.
The stir in the community made by the
notification of the railway companies that
they would refuse to continue carrying the
mails as heretofore in postal cars, has bro't
these railroad kings to terms. They heard
the rattle of heaven's artillery among the
sovereign people, and were convinced that
at last they were getting thoroughly awake
to their own interests and the impositions of
railroad power upon them. Suddenly they
suspected that a Senate committee was sit
ting in judgment upon this postal-car busi
ness, and they wrote to the Postmaster Gen
eral to know if their suspicions were well
founded. Being informed of the fact, they
withdrew their notification of January 27th
refusing to run the cars, and promise too con
tinue until the nest Congress assembles.—
This is a wise and timely change of front
on the part of these monopolists, , and may
prevent for a time the lightning stroke upon
them which follows the thunder of" an in
dignant people roused-to a consciousness 'of
their accumulated wrongs at the - hands of
railroad cormorants. Let them beware for

SILVER Cm - , (N. M.,) March 15, 1873.
Editor Agitator:—Located as we are just
on the diyide between the Atlantic and Pa
cific slopes, a number of beautiful-streams
take their rise near us and flow in opposite
directions to theirrespective oceans. Among
them the Rio Gila flowing to the Pacific is
considered the most picturesque and beau
tiful. From the peak of gold Mountain,
i near Pinos Altos, its green - belt of timber,
Viith here and there a glintsc of its shining
waters, can be traced nearly a hundred
miles, when it dashes frit° a rocky canon
whose perpendicular aides reach to the
hight of -a thousand feet.
Standing upon the highest peak of this
mountain, about nine thousand feet above
the sea level, let' us take a bird's-eye view of
'the surrounding country. What an im
mense landscape opens before us! a scope
of country plainly visible to the naked eye
considerably larger than the whole State of
Ohio. Although there are many towns and
hamlets within this radius, the population
cannot average over ono person to twenty
square miles, and a large share of it remains
to-day unprospected,an'l unexplored. Those
tall blue mountains be and where you can
see the Rio Gila are the Francisco Moun
tains, in Arizona. They contain immense
mines of copper, which are s, , on to be

Michigan. A party from c,.:orado' are

The Francisco river and EagiL L , both
rapid streams, have worn channels ough
these mountains in some places to the depth
of two thousand feet, in which the sun,
never shines more than two' hours duringi
the day. Fish are abundant, and of the
same kind found in the Rio Gila called the
" Gila Trout." The distance from here to
the Francisco Mountains is 120 miles.'
Looking farther to the left, and beyond
the Burro Mountains, you see Stein's Teak,
the eastern boundary of the large reserva
tion allotted Cochise and his tribe last sum
mer by Gen. Howard. Cochise pretends to
respect the treaty'ffiade with Gen. Howard,
but claims the right to rob and murder just
over the line, in Old Mexico, which be pro
ceeds to do in his most approved style, only
making sure to get inside the reselleation
with his plunder to receive the protection
of the United States Government so gene
rously extended to the "Poor Indian."
From Stein's Peak east that row of moun
tain peaks are all in Chihuahua, Old Mexi
co. The Burro Mountains, this side,, and in
this county, contain immense mines of sil
ver and copper, and fields of pine timber,
distant about fifty miles. Following the
line of 3lexico east we come td the Florida
31ountains, the home of a hostile band of
Apaches who commit ,many, depredations
upon both Mexicans and Arriericans, and
have thus far found its rugged and craggy
Lights a safe retreat. Between us and the
Florida Mountains we notice the Rio Min:L

Mexico. A little farther to the left, and
a southeasterly directicin, you see Cook's

the coach was upset, butt he men succeeded
in reaching the top of a ledge op the side

Cook's Peak, in the immediate vicinity,
looms far above the surrounding, mountains,
and, by reason of its peculiar-Shaped sum
mit, makes a safe landmark for hunters and
prospectors. A little farther to the left, and
looking due east from where we stand, over
and beyond the copper i •mine mountains, are
the " Organ Mountains," plainly visible,
though twentY miles east of the Rio Grande,
and one hundred and thirty-five miles from
here. , ThesA are probably the highest moun

from their many cone-shaped peaks resem
bling an organ. The Magdeline range' and
the White Mountains complete the circle to
the Rio Gila again. This valley of the Rio
Gila is from one to three miles wide. A
belt of cottonwood and ash timber three
fourths of a mile wide follows the course of
the river, embedding it in a deep shade.—
The soil is deep and ri 1, and yet it remains
entirely uninhabited for hundreds of miles,
except by bears, deer, antelope, and wild
turkeys. Ruins of old Aztec towns line its
banks, for many years ago it • sustained an
immense population, and it will again. It
only awaits the coming of the Texas Pacific
Railroad to fully demonstrate the fact.—

Commenting on the Republican side of.
this vote the Towanda Reporter says : '-The
motives which actuated the nineteen repub
liCans to advocate the matter, in direct viola
tion of all the usual courtesies of legislation,
may be conceived, when common report at
Harrisburg named the exact price paid for
votes. A more palpable, unscrupulous at=
tempt to buy a measure through the Legisla
ture, in defiance of the wishes of the people
of ie section affected, was never before
tried. So bold and impudent was the out
rage, that the press of the State, generally,
has denounced it, and members of - the House
who supported it, have lost reputation and
standing with their constituents, because
their action gave just grounds for suspect
ing that they had been paid for their votes.
The men who wore lobbying and engineer
ing this measure, are the same corrupt and
notorious rascals who have for years been in
festing the capitol with their presence. "
The means employed to carry the bill
through the House made the measure so odi
ous that Mr. Herdic could not find a cham
pion in the Senate, and caged tlfe "snake."
Thus ends, in ingominious defeat, one of the
boldest attempts to secure illegitimate legis
lation ever. known in the history of the Com
TERRIBLE MARINE DISASTER
A Steamer Wrecked off Nova Scotia
SEVERAL HUNDRED LIVES LOST.
Hiti ! rfAx, (N. 5.,) April 1, 1873.
This afternoon a report was circulated
that a steamer had been wrecked on the
coast and several lives lost. It was at first
regarded as at cruel April-fool hoax, but-to
night the Cunard ttgent here received news
that it was all true, and only a little of the
truth had been told, the fact being that the
White Star steamer Atlantic, Capt. Will--
lams, from Liverpool for New York, while
coming to this port for coal, struck on
Meaglier's rock, near Prospect, 22 miles
west. of Halifax, and became a total wreck.
Of about 1,000 souls on board upward of
700 were drowned. Third Officer Brady
arrived here to-night, and says thd - Atlantic
[ left Liverpool March 20, with upward of
900 steerage and about 30 cabin passengers.
She experienced rough weather during
the passage, but all went well until non on
Monday, March 31, when her supply of
coal became exhausted. The captain de
termined to pat into 'Halifax, and he and
the third officer were on deck until mi -
night. Her position was then judged to e
Sambro light hearincr - ,N. N. W. 39 miles.
The captain went c into his chart roo
leaving orders to be called if there was any
change in the ship's position. Brady went
to bed about the same time us the captain.
The next thing - he remembers is that he was
thrown out of his bunk, and felt The ship
strike several time. He then rushed on
deck, and found the captain and officers
there and the deck full of passengers. - He
got au ax and commenced to clear away the
boats. The captain and-other officers were
busy doing the same thing. Brady got his
boat .out and put two women in it. A num
ber of men attempted to get into it,; and
about a dozen succeeded. Just at that; mo
ment the steamer fell over on her beam ends
Only one boat had been got out, and: that
was carried down by the steamer and all in
it lost. Brady saainhled into the mizzen
rigging, winch was above the water,! anfl.
seeing he could do nothing there went for ;
ward and unwove the halyards, Leg as
sisted by two others.
He then took the halyards and all three
swam to the rock. The line was hauled
ashore and a number of passengers landed
by it. A number had got on it, but as the
tide was rising their situation was no better

mained at the scene until noon today, when
all Who were alive on board bad been saved,
except chief officer Firth, who was in the
rigging shouting , for help. Brady said he
tried to get a crew to go to Firth's rescue,
but the 'sea was so heavy that nobody would
volunteer: Altogether about 250 persons
were saved, including Captain Williams,
also fourth officer , Brown, the doctor, and
several of the engineers and sailors. Not a

about two o'clock a. m., the weather at the
time being dark, but not thick, with a rough
sea. Steamers are going down tonight to
render-what assistance they possibly can.—

fishermen are giving th all possible alien
Later details of the wreck subtract no
ing from the original tale of horror, except
that the loss of life is not so great as at first
reported. The main features of the calam
ity, remain unsoftened; the sufferings of
those exposed to the pitiless pelting of the
storm•must hare been terrible, and the story
of the survivors is touching in the extreme.
But the most trustworthy accounts reduce
the number of people on board to 976; of
these 546 were lost.
THE CHIEF OFFICER S STORY.
HALIFAX, April 2.—J. W. Firth, chief of
ficer of the Atlantic, in reply to the report
er's questions, made a statement in substance
" My watch ended at 12 o'clock on. Mon
day night. The second and fourth officers
took charge, and I ikent to my berth. I was
aroused by the shock of the vessel sinking.
The second officer came down to my room,
and said the ship was ashore and he was
afraid she was gone. I put on a few arti
cles of clothing, got an ax, and went on
deck to clear the boats. The ship had ca
reened over before I reached the deck. I
cleared the two starboard boats. Just then
a heavy sea swept the boats away. I was
holding fast to the mizzenmast rigging, and
now climbed higher for safety. The night
was so dark and the spray flew so thickly
that we could not see well what tvis going
on around us. I saw men on the rocka, but
did not know how they got: there. 'ARwho
were alive on board were in the
When daylight came I coi r kedi32 persons
in the mizzenmast rigging with me, includ
ing one woman. When these saw there
, - * - ere.lt f ielk7tween the ship - and the shore,
many em attempted to go forward to
the lines, an doing so were washed over
board and drown Many reached the
shore by the aid of the t and the fisher
men's boats rescued many more. 4 t last all
had either been washed ell or rescue , --
cept myself, the woman; and a boy. The
sea had become_ so rough that the boats
could not venture near us. Soon the boy
was washed otr, but he swam gallantly and
reached one of the boats in safety. I got a
firm hold of the woman and . secured her in
the rigging. I could see the people on shore
and in the boats, and could hail 'them, but
they were unable to help us.
" At two o'clock in the - afternoon, after
we had been in the rigging ten hours, the
Rev. Mr.. Ancient, a Church of England
clergyman, whose noble conduct I can never
forget while I live, got a crew of four men
to row him out to the wreck. He got into
the main rigging and procured a line, then
'advanced as far as he could toward me and
threw it to me. I caught it, made it fast
around my body, and then•jumped clear.—
A sea swept me oil the wreck, but Mr. An
cient held fast to the line, pulled me back,
and got me safely in the boat. I was then
so exhausted and benumbed that I wasi
hardly able to do anything . for myself, and
but for the clergyman's gallant conduct I
must have perished soon. The woman, af
ter bearing up with remarkable strength
under her great trials, had died two hours
before Mr. Ancient arrived. Her half-nude
body was still fast in the rigging, her eyes
protruding, her month foaming—a terribly
ghastly spectacle rendered more ghastly by
the contrast with the numerous jewels that
sparkled on her hands. We had to leave
her body there, and it is probably there yet.
The scene at the wreck was an awful one,
such as I had never before witnessed, and
hope never to witness again. Comparative
ly few bodies drifted ashore; most of them,
with such articles as came out of the ship
while 1 was on her, were carried to sea."
A Specimen Brick.
Perhaps the most important business for
which the Constitutional Convention was
called was the reform of the Legislature
and a limitation and definition of the pow
ers of that body beyond all dispute. It has
'performed one of these duties in a straight
forward manner. The article on legislation,
as adopted in Committee of the Whole, is
as stringent as could be ( desired; indeed, far
beyond the desires of many practical re
formers, so small is thesphere to which it
confines the legislative function. It has re
moved the public treasury almost entirely
out of the reach of law-makers, - and thor
oughly disarmed them of all - power of mis•
chief by its sweeping prohibitions of special
enactments. The mistake of the Conven
tion thus far, it seems to us, is that it has
not provided for a reform in the Legislature
itself, such as we are sure would follow
from an augmentation of its membership.
This is a matter, hOwever, which can be
easily remedied on the recurrence of the
subject in the Convention.
As matured in Committee of the Whole,
the article on - 11islation of the proposed
Constitution w*lfktully meet the wishes of
I the great maj 'rity of the citizens of the
.Conmionwealtl . As it is soon to stand the
test of their bndots, and for the purpose of
correcting certain misapprehensions, we
propose this morning to call attention to its
most salient features. In the first place, it
secures to the cities, towns;; and boroughs
the right of self government. These are to
•be free to regulate their own affairs without
legislative interference of any kind and in
whatever shape. The flagrant abuse by,
which immense debts have been saddled,
upon the same for the benefit of corpora-I
tions is also corrected by sections forbidding
the loan of the State credit to any corpora

in any corporation, and the loan of the
credit of any county or city to a corpora

shall be passed extending the term of a pub
lic officer and increasing his pay or emolu
inents after his election or 'appointment;
that the general appropriation hill shall con
tain nothing but the appropriations for the
ordinary expenses of the legislative, execu

interest on the public debt. Apptopriations
of public money for charitable, educational,

As regards the'corruot corporate influence
that is now wielded over the Legislature,•
it is made a felony for a member to receive
from any corporation or person "any mon

This article may be taken as a specimen
brick- of the proposed Constitution. We
can conceive of no stronger vindication of
' the Convention from the numerous arid pre
meditated attacks of its ring enemies, nor of
a more striking exemplification of the earn
estness and honesty of its efforts to estab
lish &form. Here are general laws suffi
cient to cover nearly all emergencies, the
clearest prohibition of special legislation;
except in the plainest exigencies; adequate
safeguards against . the reckless increase of
the debt of the State, and of the several
counties and cities; a guaranty of self-gov
ernment to the municipalities, a restraint
upon the corporations, and a prohibition of
bribery that cannot be easily escaped.—
How Democratic Doctors Disagree
A committee of the Senate and Douse re•
ported the appropriation bill, and it passed.
Some people object to it because the Con
gressmen did not strike out the item as to
them increase. it could not be done; they
had to vote for the whole bill, or no bill at
all, and that would have stopped the 'wheels
of •Government.' The salaries ere not too
high; not half enough.
Very many of the Congressmen do not re
ceive enough to pay their expenses.while in
Washington. As it costs a large sum to
live in that city, ten thousand dollars a year
is little enough for their services. We hope
in four years from hence, when a Democrat
'ic President will be inaugurated, that the
4*ecutive7ill receive a 'hundred thousand
dg liars a year, and tie other officials in pro
ptirtlott. A rich and poptthnuf people cannot
utford to be btlogy.— Wellsboro .567.0crat,
