above was gotten-up seeretly,and its eilstence,,
unknown-to,the people of this County. It seems.
te.htte been one of those kind of bills not niade
publie—not,healthy to see the light of. day until
passed. Thi s s was the only link that the RtNicl
mg ;Railroad Company needed to complete its
absorbing process, - and it came at laid without
any preparatory notice to the people, lint even
from 'Senator 'Randall and the Representatives,
from this County who could nett be ignorant; of
the effect of the patotage`of the bill. If the hill
had - been defeated by 9ur Senators and Repre
.sentatiyes,' the "Reading Railroad could not have
absoibed the Canal, -and abandoned` ship - ping
points 'on it. And the final result will be the
complete abandonment of the Canal in Schu,Vl
`kilt County for with the shipping .oCcoal by it
transferred below the Blue Mountain, the Canal
above will belit'a measure disused and till.' p •

. part of the Canai will be very great, all of wh cit
will be caused by this bill which Senator Rail

tore from this County; permitted to be paseed
without opposing it. . ' •
Now, let Mr.ltandall extant if he can, this
matter, and give. the reason for the passage of

Democratic voters in' this County, will at the

that it was only right that Paris phould be made
to feel to its .very centre. what ithe cry of "A

ers becomes very grave indeed.. It is•known
that the French 'Provisional Government 114

and enlightened action of the Repu bl bap -party,

• •Democratic party.
Ever,anxions to relieve the people fiond - the
burdeniy, of an oppressive taxation, resulting
• from fmr'efforts necessary to crush out a Demo

to adjust the internal revenue laws so as to
atfordinimediate relief to *II .claaSeaof the

It has abolished all' the special taxes that were
- so irritating and "annoying, and now the-met

visits from the tai. gatherer e There now re
mains a tax' on 'only a few articles, such as ,
liquors, tobacco, stamps, bank dividends, and
one" or two other things, which belong to the
class of luxuries rather tbah of necessities.
The delicate atijusting the du
ties on, imports as 'to afford the best possible
protection to our AmeriCin manufacturers and
their laborers against the low wages and cheap
-capital of Europe, was most carefully consid
ered by the Republican majority 'in Congress,
and in spite of the hostility of ; the Deinocracy,
an act had passed carefully., discriminating be
tween those articles which' we could not manu
