From the annual report of the Adju

teer,militia force of the State is rapidly
increasing. There were 168 companies
actually organized and fit for service,
on the 30th Noveinber, 1809. There: are
four brigades ' t in Philadelphia, constitu
ting the first division, under command
of Major' Gen.. Charles -M: Prevost.—
This division was reviewed twice du
ring the year—once by 'Governor Gea
ry—and the Adjutant General speaks in
high terms of the " skill, discipline
and soldierly bearing displayed by the
officers and mizan," It is 3,000 strong.
We notice that there is one \ company
organized at Tioga, in this ebunty.
"Geary Guards," H. Pickering, Jr.,

J. Cady, 2nd Lieutenant. They are
armed with the Leaman musket.
There should be a company organized
at every central 1 place in the county ;
and we hope °Ur old veterans will go
about it at once. Enough old soldiers
can be found in every neighborhood to
soon put the companies under a good
state of discipline and drill ,• and the

would afford them opportunity to re

and we hope the Legislature will make

An' Aet Relative to the Payment of Taxes
one 'Unseated Lands, Aiiproveci Nov. 19,
SECT. 1. Be it enacted, &c., That the Trea
surer of each county in this Commonwealth tilall
keep a book; to be called " the receipt book," in
which shall be recorded the receipts' of .all pay.,
meats made to him on account of taxes paid on
unseated lands, designating the number of acres,
warrantee named, and name or mallow of owners
or alleged owners of each tract of land, the town
ship where situate, and the ailment of taxes paid,
and when, and by whom paid; a certified copy
'of which receipt, under the hand of the Treasu
rer, and the seal of the county, shall be the only
evidence of tliO payment of taxes, except where
sato recelpta nave been nosy oe.oso--
ance with the provisions of the tiret section of the
act of Assembly of March ninth, Anne omini
One thousand eight hundred end for ty-seven .
SECT. 2. That the owners of unseated lands
shall have two years from the passage of this
act ;within which to have their receipts fur taxes
on unseated lands recorded in said book, when
the same have not been already ebtered in a book
heretofore kept by the Treasurer of the county
for that purpose. Provided, that tins provisions
of this section shall not apply, where there is
any legal evid l ence upon the records or books
kept by the Treasurer of the-county, lo prove the
payment of said. taxes.
SETT. 3. That no parol evidenco ho re
ceived to prove the payment of taxes on unsealed
- ' The above is a copy of an. act of
Assembly, passed at the last session • of
the Legislature, and recently, 'approved
by the Governor, which, although ap
parently simple and harniless in its
provisions, ,is yet calculated / to work
:great wrong to the owners of unseated
lands, without securing any advantage
to the public.
This act liinits the evidence necessary
to prove payment of taxes on unseated
lands, to a " certified copy" of an entry
to be made by the county Treasurer, in
a book to be kept by him for that pur
pose; except in cases where the tran
scripts of taxes , have , been recorded in
accordance with the provisions of an
existing act, of March 9, 1847.
ThiS act was permissive only, neither
directory nor compulsory. As it ,did
not in any way affect the reception of
the original receipts as evidence of the
payment of taxes,. very few, if any,
transcripts have been recorded in pur
suance of it; so that the limitation of
the evidence of payment, contemplated
by the act above copied, extends,, pine
tieally,lo all taxes heretofore paid, as
yell as to such as may be paid hereafter.
The mischief of the act is two-fold
. , First, in- absolutely limiting evidence of
the payment of taxes, to a certified copy
of an entry to be made In a book kept
by the Treasurer, to the exclusion of
the original receipt, not so certified ;
and, if the law be construed literally,
to the exclusion of the entry in the
Treasurer's book itself. , Second, in its
intended retroactive operation; in that
it requires the owners of unseated lands
to have recorded, within two years from
the date of its passage, all their receipts
for taxes, taken no matter how long
ago; or debars these owners from prov
ing the payment of such taxes, by ex
cluding those original receipts, given
and 'taken in perfect good faith, and in
full conformity to existing law.
In no ether class of payments is \ the
evidence which may be given so limit
ed. To exclude an original entry, or an
otiainal receipt given by the proper ofp
c,erl evidence of the payment of n o
ney, and to limit such evidence to a c r
;lied copy of such an entry, is gross y
To require the owner of unseated
lands, not only to pay his taxes there
on, but to see that the Treasurer makes
and preserves the record of such pay
ments, at the peril of forfeiting the title
to his'land, if the officer, either by ac
cident or design, neglects this duty, is a
-wrong of sufficient. magnitude.: To
'compel that owner to see - that hiw taX
receipts for all former years are so re
corded, and to procure, certified copies
of those reeeiptl, or else drive hini out
of Colirt, when be offers to prove pay
ment by the production of an original,
authentic receipt, for thepayment of his
taxes, is a piece of 'legislative wrong al
most without a parallel.

A NEW DEPOTURE.
It Is difficult for us who live in these
times,' To cornprellend all that is meant
by the progress of the last nine years
yet:it is well Occasionally, to' pause
amidst the whirl of events, and seek to
do, so, ,' Ever, since the first gun, was,
fired in the, late war, the Republican
party, has kept straight on in the line of
its march against the wrong and oppres
sion so long encouraged and protected
by the-policy and practice of our Gov
ernment. At last the final port is rea
ched. All men are free and equal be
fore the law. , The oppression of centu
ries is done away with. Not only this,•
but the impulse lent to moral and poli
tical progress, has carried us beyond
anything hoped for by the most san
guine, and We see not only equal rights
conceded, but equalinivileges also, se-,
cured and guaranteed to alt men, Irre
spective of race or color. •
These were among' the legitimate
fruits of triumph, in a contest' of force,
to which the oppressors and supporters
of caste themselves appealed. 'Submit
ting their case to the arbitrament of
arms, they should abide the decision.—
But here comes a query Has theDem
oeratip party a right of subrogation to
the honors and profits of this judgment
in arms, obtained in the name and right
of the Republican party? Can that
party, the great,majority of whose lead
ers espoused the cause of the defeated
euittemcan LS, anu-stomerantras-wrvnetisete
and advocates of the " lost cause," come
it)now and demand or take the fruits of
e.c9llquest which they in vain sought,
by ever - y - Aneans 'of adroit pleading, to
turn against the final conquerors? It
has been said of late, that the Republi-
Ilan party has accomplished its mission,
and that it ought now, in decency, to
die, and give place to a new party. It
is not subrogation, then, but a sugges
tion of the death, and a substitution of
a legal representative, which miey
make and seek to accomplish. Such at
least is the practice in our Courts, as NVO
understand it. But the rightof admin
istration does not descend to the Demo
cratic party, and we still claim the right
to object to. her appointment as ad
ministratrix of the Republican party.
Not in any ex parte proceeding cl i p she
claim the right: only on the failure of
the Republican party } to assume the aci
ministration of the estate, to which her
triumphs during these late eventful
years have entitled her, in accordance
with the spirit of the times, can Demo
cracy usurp her place, and become heir
I to the fruiLs of this conquest at the suit
Yet this usurpatory policy is the only
one which can give success to the Dem
ocratic party. The burden of their par
ty creed, has for eight years been com
plaint and fault-finding l against the
Republican party ; and the people have
failed to see that a change of a party,
which has, at least, accomplished some
thing, for a party which proposes noth
ing, would be of any advantage to them.
Had that party, • in 1864, instead of the
peace policy announced amidst thecom
plaints of the Chicago platform, taken
advanced position in favor of, a inure
plgorous prosecution of •the war, it
would, in all probability, have succeed
ed in that campaign ; and again in 1868,
had it recognized the legitimate results
of the war—reconstruction, honest pay
ment of the debt, and the emancipa
tion then fully accomplished—it is quite
as likely that the result would have
been different. But the leopard•cannot
change its spots. Democracy was true
to its own nature, as it bad come to be
known and recognized in its later days;
and it was simply impossible for-it to
do other Wise than it did. .Had it de;
dared for war in 1864, and succeeded, it
would not have been the' same party
that it is to-day : Had it endorsed re
construction in 1868; it would not now
be lamenting•over the results which in
evitably followed; .and thus, again, it
would have become another and totally
different embodiment of principles.
There is something in a name: and
while it is true that the recent course of
the, Democratic party has cast odium
upon its ancient characte l r, yet the mem
ory of what it once was clings to it; and
if it were possible to bring the party
back to the ancient landmarks, modi
'fled by the lessons of the recent past,
there might yet be hope of its resusci
tation. Such rising from the dead,
however, involves a:shaking oft' of all
its grave clothes, in the shape of its an
cient fossils, so long wedded to invete
rate hatred of Republican principles,
that they could not affiliate with this
new type of, democrats. So that, after
all, it is impossiblefor the Democratic
party o t our time to take'snch new de
parture' without losing its identity.
This uestion of so great change in
the complexion of that party, seems to
have some able advocates; and the dis
cussion will be yatched with great 'ln-

ANSON BIIIMINGANE. .
Swiftly as on the' wings of night,
came - the sad intelligence that Anson
Burlingame, one of the ablest of all our
rising men, was no more. He died ftt
St. Petersburg, on the 23d ultimo, very
unexpectedly. His death was announ
ced in this country the next day.
. Mr. Burlingame was born in New
Berlin, New York, Nev. 14; 1822, and
was in his 48tir year when he died. At
an early day, his' father removed to
Michigan, then a \ Territory, where the
son became acqUainted with frontier
life, and the language and habits of the
Indians. He was educated Atari Acad
emy in Detroit. Choosing the proces
sion, of law, he entered the law school
of Harvard, in 1843. He located at Bos
ton, where he built up a large practice.
He soon engaged in politics, however,
and In 1852 he was elected to the Senate.
of, Massachusetts. In 1854 he was elec
ted to C_oueress. where lo soon made
'hirnseff rett - nfan - - or Vower3' ancr
ever since, his name has been familiar
to all. • When Brooks ,committed the
cowardly assault upon Senator, Sum
ner, in his seat in the \United States
Senate in 1856, Mr. Burlingame de
nounced the act in bitter terms; and
the result was, as might have been ex
pected in those days, a challenge to
fight. As the challenged party, accord
ing to the rites of chivalry, he had the
privilege of choosing the weapons. He
chope rifles, and Canada as the place of
me4ting. Mr. Brooks; refused to meet
him there, saying that, Co do so, he
would he required to pass through a
" hostile country."' Mr. Burlingame
offered to secure him safe transit, but
still Brooks refused, and there the mat

one of the most efficient and popular
stump speakers engaged in, those cam
paigns. Mr. Lincoln appointed him
Minister to China, which station he
held till 1867, when he was appointed
a special Ambassador by the Chinese
Government, to treat with the Western
Powers of Europe and our own coun
try; upon the general subject of open
ing China to the commerce of the
world. At the time of his death, he
was engaged arranging such a treaty
with Russia, having already' accom
plished the object of his appointment
with most of the other great Powers of
the world. Such a distinction was nev

Chinese Government, nor perhaps by,
any other Government, upon a for

. 'net'll proposing to leave the ques
tione of license or no license to the peo
ple, has provoked considerable contro
versy throughout the State. It was
amended so e
as to make it a county
matter, and we believe its provisions
require that one fotirth of the voters of
the county shall ,join 3n
bring the matter before the court for
submission to the people. We have
been informed, though we have seen no'
such report in the papers, that our rep
resentatives opposed it, on the final pas
sage;'believing_ that the !amendments
make it impracticable, SI it seems. to
us, as we:understandit. To require one
fourth of all the people in the county
to join in a petition,. before the matter
can be brought before the people at the
election, seems to u grossly unreason
able, and We think Will have the effect
of making the law a dead letter.
We subjoin the remarks of Mr. Niles,
while the matter was under considers-

of postponing the whole matter.
Mr. Nirdas (Tioga) I am opposed, Mr. Speaker,
to the postponement of this question. Let us

either vote it up or vote it down. The provisions
of this measure aro understood by every gentle
man on this floor. It has repeatedly been before
the House.;This day has been specially set
apart for its 'Consideration, and let us not at
tempt to hide out...opposition to a measure so
just by encouraging any dilitory motion. We
cannot evade this question. The responsibility
cannot be shirked. The people demanded that
they have.a voice in controlling the sale of what
is universally admitted to be one of the great and
growling evils of the 'age. We should not bb
afraid to trust thepoople. This is not a sumptuary
law; wo do not propose to invade the private
rights of a single individual; we only desire that
the people of the Commonwealth—through the
medium of the ballot•box—..the great palladium
of American liberty—shill decide the question of
"license or no license." I therefore hopo that
we may have a square vote, and that the people
may see where their Repretientatives stand on
this question. .

A REMINISCENCE OF FM C 11414,
Pine Creek rises in the Sereeden hills, and flows
west and south for fifty miles, where it joins the
'West Branch of the Susquehanna, at .Tersey Shore.
It is fed along its entire course by trout streams,
and is famous for the quantities or the timber from
'which it takes its present name. Its Indian name
is riadaughton which is said to mean "beautiful
scenery." And the' scenery it beautiful. Stand:'

son. I got there before noon, and the bar-room
and the room adjoining were both crowded with
people. Although wintry out of doors,- it was
warm•inside, as there was an "arbitration" going
on. I aeon got to know that the defendant had
sold the plantiff a dog, and had warranted the
article as a first-class deer dog. The dog bad not
been made fully acquainted with the terms of the
contract, and hence the dispute. On account of the
storm, the lawyers froin Walther() had not come,
and " counsel" was improvised from the crowd.—
The fun had Commenced long before I got there.
Thirty-odd witnesses bad been examined, and
the court adjourned for drinks and dinner before
the summing up.
I will_not weary your readers with a report of
the speeches. They were neither able, learned,
eloquent, nor elegant. Ono of the arbitrators
was Bram Itohrebaeher, a man who weighed, 226
pounds, without any extra flesh, with a fist like a
sledge hammer, and a voice and a smile as genial
as a woman's. Rumor said ho bad once been a
clergyman ; at any rate, be was fella Scripture,
and Shakespeare ' and whisky, and fun, and the
assembled crowd had the fall benefit of his anom
alous mixture. The dog, on trial rejoiced (by
wagging his tail) in the suggestive name of Dan
ger. The counsel for the plantiff undertook to
quote in his speech some miserable poetry which
he thought would apply, but was immediately
interrupted by "Rohry," who told him that no
such doggerel would bo allowed there. "But,"
Sontinued the Court, "if you desire to quote
poetry to help your ease, dive into the classic...--

A NEW 4 , MIJETEIAL Joinotett:—The
Technologist is the title of a new industrial PAN
nal, devoted to engineering, manufacturing and
''building, that comes to us freighted with valuaq
fble articles., The distinguishing, feature of ,this
'journal, is the fact that all the articles and Hies
t‘rations are original—no clippings or Old engra
vings being used. The publishers further pledge
themselves that no advertising articles (that is,
no descriptive puffs of worthless inventions) shall
be inserted in its columns, under any circum
stances whatever; and, if they fulfill this pledge,
they will certainly do a grand thing for the in
'dustrial- journalism of the country, for every in.
telligent mechanic knows that indiscriminate puf
fing is the bane of our mdehanical and se-called
scientific periodicals. .
• The number before us consists of forty-font,
large pages, and it is printed on very superior
paper, and in the best style of the • typographic
art. Altogether, it is the finest looking journal
of practical science now before the public. The
articles, too, aro of unusual excellence, and con
tain matter calculated to instruct and interest all
classes. Tho titles of a few of the subjects''dis
cussed are--Tecenological Education,,Tempering
Steel, Trial of Steam Engines, Improvement in
Distillation, Sunless and Airless Dwellings, the
lgeasurement of Electrical Resistance , Vision
and the Stereoscope, the Walks of New York
Central Park, East River Bridge Caissons, the
Microscope, Lessons, on , Drawing, Relation of
Technology to Insurance, etc. Tho yearly sub
scription is two dollars, and the price of single
numbers twenty cents, a sum that seems ridiett.
lously small, when compared with the size and
character of the journal. It .must require' an
enormous circulation to make the enterprise pay
at these figures; and it is pleasant to see:thatthe
publishers have sufficient faith in our American
workingmen to lead them to undertake it.
The Teeheolviet is issued by the American
Publication Company, whose office is at 1 1 /0
Broadway, Now York. Every mechanic oughtto
send for at least ono number of this journal. If
they send for ono, it will be strange if they do
not send for the others.
