with the county Commissioners, 'who
are In favor of it irrespective of party.
The bill NVCIS opposed by M - eilsrs. Bil
lingfelt, White, Bnekalew, \Wallace
and others, awl was defeated by . a
of 20 to 12, Pending the vote, Mr. Wal
lace Inatle . the following remarks, which
appear._ to us so apt that we give place
to thorn :
This bill proposes to do for Tioga county the
very thing that the Treasurer and Commissioners'
asked me to de for my county, and I told them I
was opposi;d to the prinoiple of legislating a man
into' office one year more than ho was elected for
by the people; that if they would prlide in the
bill that the term of the man next elep ed should
he three years, I would vote for thtf bill.. We
have the in'oonvenienee suggested by the Senator
from Potter; wo have not a great pito. ,
tical Inconvenience. We have quite ag much un
seated land as the Senator from Potter, and wo,
find that the Treasurer can get along pretty well,
although he comes into office the same year the
taxes are paid. You aro making an exceptional
case out of Tioga ; you aro violating the sound
rule tO which this side of the chamber has
tinetly committed itself—that we should hot leg•
islate a man auto office. I, for one, cannot con
sent to this bill. If the Senator from Potter can
pass this hill, my pedple will ask the question,
• Why could you not pass a bill of this charac
ter?' Therefore, upon principle, upon policy, in
the want of serious inconvenience, it seems to me
the bill ought not. tunas. If it oes, it will, re
turn to plague us in time to come."
Now it would hardly be supposed that
this bill stood a capital chance of be
coming a law, after its very decided re•
jection by the Senate, coupled with
grave doubts as tai its constitutionality.
Yet, on the 11th, the Senate reconsid
ered and passed the bill by a vote of 17
to 12.
We are personally and politically on
friendly terths with the present Treasu
rer, and Welke are reasons why we sho'd
be in favor Of the,extended term in this
case, if it Were certain to be accepted as
an exceptional case by all parties. -But
thel)reeedent is a bad one, and legisla
ting men into county offices is of doubt
ful Constitutionality. We can only
hope it wilt ,rock well,--as an exception
—and not " come bank to plague us."
Legislatures are heavy bothee heavy

The exception to it is when there IS a

I.Ve are tilled with admiration of

Is to ('oo o ' ont of.
It is well known that the Legislatures
of States (tint to mention Congress) are
very largely eoillposed of lawyers. We
have an abiding respect for lawyers:
we think them exceptionally faithful
to the interests of their clients—and
themselvog. We know that the judi
ciary is almost exclusively recruited
front their ranks Ohat a largo majority
of them leek forward to the—woolsack,
is it ?—as the ill)!) za Mule of their aspi
rations.; and, hth Ing the law-ranking
power in their hands, we might expect
them to give much attention t 6 title
stuffing of that same woolsack, in anti
cipation of possible future relations.-
1n this we should not be disappointed.
Referring to the record, we, find that
when the Hon. R. Q. White first at
tained his judicial position, the salary
of a President Judge was $l5OO per an
num. It has advanced until at the pre
sent time it is $4,000. This is not all:
a bill was introduced in the Legislature
to raise the pay of a Judge holding
court outside of his own district to $l2
per day, over and above his regular sal
ary. It passed, and, if we are not mis
taken, is the law of the State to-day.—
One would think this made a tolerably
good thing of it, *considering : but not
so though our assembled wisdom in the
legislative halls•at Harrisburg, for, on
April 26 of the present session the fol
lowing bill was introduCed - :.
Sac. I. That any law judge of any court of
this Commonwealth who, having held his com
mission as such at least ten years, shall, after
having attained to the age of seventy years, re
sign his office, Shall thereafter, during the residue
of his natural life, receive the same salary which
wa s by law payable to him at the time of hie re
t;lic. 2. Any law judge of any court of this
Commonwealth who, having held his commission
and acted as such for at least ten years, shall be,
come so far broken down in health as to be un
fitted to perform itho duties of hie office, may, on
resigning his commission, be entitled to receive
ono-half tho amount of salary paid him at the
timo of his resignation, for such period of time
as by such disability ho shall be un fi tted to fol
low his prCfessional pursuits.
- The bill was defeated in the Senate
by a vote,of 19 to i 4; but the fact that
a change' of three votes would have
passed such a bill through the Senate
is significant. We do not think the
law judges of this State asked or de
sired the passage of such a bill. Wo
have thirty-one judicial districts, and
pensioning ofrjudgea for holding a high
posi tion of honor andemolument which
it has been the object of their lives to
attain, is, in the vernacular, " cutting
it too fat."
But our judges have all been lawyers
our lawyers hope to be judges : and . it
is wise to cushion the bench on which
,you expect to sit. It is a ,very pretty
arrangement—for the bar: " Veels vith

Erie canal ranged about t • follows:
corn fed `pork, $2 to $2 0 per cwt. ;
white wheat, 62 to 75c. per bushel.—
These are given as 'samples,, because
they were almost the only articles—ex
cepting hides and wool—that had a cash
value and ready sale in tho l e markets.—
Beef, eggS, butter, and ether articles of
food, were quite as low' in proportion ;
and all mechanical labor, loths, groce
ries, etc., were eorrespondigly low:
We have frequently bee opposed by
anti-tariff men with the talgument that
a working man could llve as easily then
as now ; Mlat, prices being equalized,
it makes no difference whether you get
one dollar or three for a day's work.—

As the Tribune proposes to double the

held in durance, this might- turn out a
'long-suffering committee. - . • -
Mr. Carpenter offered• a resolution
that Mr. White be detained in custody
until he signified his readiness to an=
si.ei t . The resolution was carried by a
. hel majority ; and also a similar one
in the case of Mr. Ramsdell, formerly
on the Agitator. The most impprtant
part of the session, to our thinking, was
the short speech of Senator Wilson:—
He said :
"I have been hero sixteen years, during which .
time the proceedings of the exeontive sessions
lave found their way into the , press more ,or less
aconrate. The papors employ as correspondents
man of intelligence, capacity and character.--
They are men who know the proceedings 41 . -this•

utdorstand what is being done nil the time, and
know something of the history . of the country.
They are employed to find out what is done, and
- to-give the people the news, even before it takes
place:Senators know. that Senators talk about
what is dine in 'scored session. I talk with
these correspondents in the presence of other
persons. Ii is no use for Senators to put on snob
virtue here, and pretend to be what they are not.
The truth is, Senators talk too much."

That sounds like common sense. As
for our old friend " Tip" Ramsdell, we
always thought he would bring
jail ; always told him so. Now—while
the kero s ene holds out—let him repent,
—of that rifle business at Camp Curtin.
Nearly six months ago the employee
of the largest coal companies in the
State " struck"—not for a rise in wages,
but against a seri* reduction. The
companies, which had been paying $1
81 cents per ton for mining, docked the
price down to 80 cents. They knew the
men would not work for that price, and
did not desire that they should. They
had made the usual cool, long-headed
calculations, for which they (the com
panies) are so famous, and were pre
pared, - nrit - orily for along strike, with
the usual commit - Rants of riot, mayhem
and homicide, but for a de . ad horn-and
horn-lock with the great transportation
compan-iesand heavy coal operators.—
As for the mine* they could be got to
work whenever it became really desi
.rous that ntore coal should be mined.
The winter has been a memorable one
for the great anthracite mines of the
State. All winter an army :of rugged,
obstinte men has been lying idle about

ro b a., ...rugs or other days, wherever
therei' ere savings to fall back on, and
being upported by the Working Men's
Benev t lent Association in oases of t
titution. All winter the miners have
been growing poorer and more despe
rate; and all through the long strike
they have held out with the indomita
ble obstinacy of their races, (Welsh and
English.) Riots have occurred when
ever the companies have attempted to
Introduce other and cheaper laborers;
men have been killed in the most bru
tal manner ; and still the troubles con
tinue. The companies are determined
on a heavy reduction in the cost of mi
ning coal, and all attempts at cOmpro
mise have so far failed, the highest price
offered by the companies being 93} cents
per car, with clauses Ignoring the "ba
sis principle" entirely. The miners
will accept_this, and they lir e
strengthened by the, fact that in Le
high, Wyoming and Schuylkill the mi
ners have resumed work. The Wilkes
barre coal and iron company are work
-14-double their ordinary force, and the
lesser cOinpanies have accepted the
" basis," 1. e., when coal is high, the
labor of the miner • is correspondingly
enhanced in price. But the three great
companies, the Pennsylvania, t• e 1 a
ware and HUdson, and Lackawana and
Western, repudiate the " basis," and
the fight goes on. Every paper from
the coal regions comes to us redolent
of coal troubles, and each has its own
view of the case: some of them agree
ing with the Tribune, that the laborer
has a right to put his own price on his
labor, while the employer has just as
good a right to buy labor where it can
be purchased most cheaply. This is
the stand .invariably taken by the N.
Y. Tribune in all collisions between la
bor and capital; but we fail to 'see
where or how Mr. Greeley reconciles
this withhis well known,:and—as we
think—sound doctrines, on the tariff
question. We are a Protectionist from
conviction, strengthened by years of
observation and experience. We believe
it to bathe interest of every producing
American, who produces anything of
real value to his country, ninth° be not
brought into competition with the fab
-1 ries produced by the pauper labor of
Europe. And we also believe—as Mr.
Greeley evidently does not—that it is
equally his duty and his pflvileged
right to protect himself from that pau
per labor when the tariff has changed
the location of that 111-paid laborer to
our own soil, where he has no natural
right that be bad not on European soil.
If protection means anything, it means
just this : that the men in our republio
who produce' all the real wealth of the 1
country,—who are its strength, in peace
as well'as in war,—shall not be reduced
to the beggarly life of the European la
borer ; that their pay shall be such that 1
they may.dress decently and live well,
even to the great Inconvenience of un
productive idlers, who creep through
lifein - a._channel of sluggish respecta
bility, on meager incomes and small
salaries. And we confess that our sym
pathies, as a rule, are with the strikers
for better wages; and ; that we - believe
in the right of our producers, all over
the land, to protect themselves from a
system of pauper labor, whether Re:o' rue

' Abont nine o'clock this morning G.
Becker, Esq., who has in all things con
ducted the defense'of Ruloff in a. most
lawyer-like and masterly manner, re
ceived from Mr. Freeman, editor of the
`Binghamton Leader, who was in , New
York for the purpose of making a last
effort in behalf et the condemned
the following dispAtch : •
" Nsw-Yonx., MAY 17,1871.—T0 Geo.
Becker :—Ruloff cannot be saved. All
efibrts will prove useless. I thank God
I have done my duty as I understood It,
regardless of consequences. •
At the time of the receipt of this dis
patch, Mr. Becker was at the jail in
conversation with Ruloff. He opened
it and read it, and handed it to Ruloff
without any remark. Ruloff read'it,
and his manner, which previously had
been e a 1 m and earnest, immediately
Until that time he had indulged a
faint hope that something would occur,
and that his life would be saved. Now
the last link was broken, and he knew
that he must die. With an expression
of countenance the most' fiendish, And
oaths the most fearful, that was ever
witnessed or heard, he denounced and
- abused all living and moving beings
He cursed the officers that arrested him,
the jury that Convicted him, the court
that sentenced him, and the Governor
that refused him pardon. He abused
and cursed Mr. Beaker, his counsel, de
claring that he had not donehis full
duty, and that he might have saved
him. To such a length did he carry his
abuse of Mr. Becker, that the latter left
the jail without replying. After Mr.
Becker had gone, Ruloff apologized to
Mr. Whitney, Mr. Beaker's clerk who
had brought in the dispatch, for his
language and conduct to Mr. Becker,
and admitted that the latter had done
all within his power, and all that any
lawyer could have done, to defend rand
save him. - - • • - - - •
The gallows after it was, completed,
was repeatel h
tested, - a bag of sau cy
weighing near y two undred pounds
being used instead of the body of a hu
man being. It was found to work sat

of the hour for Its work of death.
We have never seen a gallows that
could be considered an attractive piece
of workmanship, but we. have never
seen one that ponessed such meager at
tractions as this. From its construc
tion, and its workings at the time of its
preliminary trial, we have reason to an
ticipate that the execution will not .be
attended with that speedy death, to the
victim which is always desirable, espe
cially to spectators.
MAY I.B.—This morning Mr. Becker
said to Ruloff: " You. profess to be, a
philosopher, and place your reliance
upon that, and not upon religion. Can
you die like a stoic?" Ruloif said—
" Yes, leave me alone for that. Socra
tes took the hemlock, Cicero was mur
dered on the sea shore, Seneca commit
ted suicide. I shall endeavor in my
humble way to meet death with the
same fortitude." Becker said, " There
are some clergymen who have tendered
their services; they have . fixpwed a
desire to administer any spiritual corn
fort that you may think needful, or de&
Ruloff said, " - I thank you; I •am a
man of strong convictions, awl cannot
change my mind in a day °Can hour
on a subject of so great importance;
never alter my mind without reason ;
and I see no reason to change
that subject."
In reply to the Sheriff as to whether
ha wanted a minister present at the ex
ecution, he replied that, he did'nt care a
d—d about a minister. It would be his
choice not to have one, but if the Sher
iff wanted any praying done at the
time, he should not object,
At 11:37 the signal was given, and the
most noted criminal of the time was\

died the same firm, materialistic scoff
er he had lived; cynical, matter of fact
and stoical to a degree. His last wish,
expressed to the Sheriff, was, " You
wont have any prayer or any d—d non
sense down. there, will you?" The
Sheriff assured him that his wishes in
that respect should be gratified._ •
No man was ever more. justly execu

without a feeling of sad regret.
