The Executive Mansion in Wash
ington has been thoroughly renovated, at a
cost of forty thousand dollars. The new
c/irpets and curtains were specially import

A Compliment. —The Erie Despatch,
the loyal organ of that county, in closing a
pathetic appeal in r. ference to the i-I< ction
of Senator, and ••aming the loyal members
of the Senate and llou-e against voting
for Cameron, said : "Give us a fool, Ike
Geary, but for God's sake do not give us a
knave. How the man is going to get the
knave off his hands, is not for us to advise ;
but we shall see. We would not be sur
prised if he would do like Forney—take
the knavt to his bosom.
(ST The Judiciary Committee of the
Rump have already asked for ten thousand
dollars ($lO,bOl)) to pay expenses in the
prelim nary examinat on of witnesses in the
imp. aclimont case. It' it has cost ten thous
and dollars merely for the preliminaries,
what will it cost when the committee get
rightly to work? But. of course the kind
ot testimony brought before the committee
is costly, Joe Holt found it, at least, in
the Conover affair. About the best thing
the President could do would be to disperse
the whole plundering, sqiiandeiing crew,

How to Get Rid of the National Debt
"Tlieieare twenty millions of people in
the North If each one of these would de
stroy a five cent currency note daily, it
would amount to a million of dollars in a
day toward the removal of the National
debt. If this were done every day for a
year, it would diminish the debt by three
hundred and sixty five millions of dollars
yearly, which is more than the whole in
ternal revenue produces."— S. Y. Eveniny
Pout, (Pad.)
Thweupon the Rochester (N. Y.,) Crn
ion (Drm„) di courses:
"There are twenty millions of hairs on
one or more yellow nogs. If each of these
hairs could be mvle to yield a dollar a
day, every day tor a year, there would be
enough realized by this time twelvemonth
to pay off the entire debt and leave several
thousand millions in the treasury. We
presume it will require no very elaborate
argument to prove that this plan of getting
rid of the National debt beats.that of the
Post all to pieces. Any one ran see at a
glance that it yields and pays off more rap
idly, Bnd, what is best ot alj, leaves ah ind
ome surplus for somebody to steal,"
GEN W. W.H Davis, has recently
published a history of the 104 th Pennsyl
vania Regiment, which, as a record of the
operations of bis reg meet and others con
nected with it must prove very interesting
As this book gives an account of the siege
and capture of Charleston in which the 52d
participat-d yitb the 104 th, and other
Pennsylvania Regiments, it w ill doubtless
be sought tor by some of the boys of the
s'2d in this region.
We have not seen the work but clip the
following notice of it from ihe Patriot and
"As it purports to be the book is a com
plete history of the 104 th Regiment the

ness of Gen. Neaglee, to whom the book
is dedicated. At the end is a complete
roster of the regiment—containing every
item relative to promotions, transfers, cas
ualties. Ac. The text amounts to 335
pages, so clearly and evi-n graphically writ
ten as to aff>rd not only full information
butjmueb interest to even persons who had
no personal connection with the regiment

highly interesting to the menders and
fri ndof the 52d, 74th, 76 h, 85th, and
07th Re giments, which regiments, s well
as the 104 th. participated with credit and
effecqin that siege.
It is well known that Gen. Davis was the
• Colonel of the 104 th, and, through it and
bis own gallant conduct,' won bis title to
bis stars. No one is better fitted, tochron
lcletbe deeds of daring, the sufferings, and
the triumphs of that bind ot brave men.

hope his efforts in the field of history may
he rewarded in a more substantial and de

the field of war. The History is hand

A crr< >p<md< nt of the Montrose Re
publican furnishes thai paper the fol
lowing synopsis of two important bills
now pending in our Sta.e Legislature :
Educational matters promise to receive
considerable attention frum our Legisla
ture this winter, and it is almost ctrtain
that a bill will be passed ere the close of
the session, calculated to enhance the in
terest of education ir. the Commonwealth.
Two bills have been introduced in the
House, one of which is a supplement to an
act for the regulation and continuance of a
system of education by common schools,
approved May Bth, 1864 ; the other is "an
act to increase the efficiency of ihe com
mon schools for the education of teachers."
The fiist provides that from and after the
first Monday in June, 1867, and every
year then-after, theic shall be levied upon
the real estate and personal proparty a tax
of two mills upon the assess d valuation
thereof—the amount thus raised to be ap
plied exclusively to defraying the expen
ses of instruction in the common schools
of the Commonwealth. Said tax shall he
levied, assessed, and collected bv the same
officers who levy, asse>s, and collect State
and County taxes, and the same shall be
paid to the County Treasurer, who shall
pay it to the State Treasurer as fast as
collected. Ail balances remaining un
paid on the Second Tuesday of January
shall be charged against the delinquent
Continues and draw seven per cent, inter
est until paid ; and such counties shall n t
be paid the usual appropriations frotti the
State until said balances are ful v settled.
If the Commissioners of any or county
refuse to comply with the roq .irements of
this a-t. the State Treasurer shall require
the eourts to enforce obedience thereto.--
In addition to the amount raised by this
tax. $300,000 shall be appropriated each
year out of the funds in the State Treasu
ry. for educational purposes. A census of
all the children between six and twenty
one years of age, in the various townships,
shall be taken by the assessors at the tiiue
the assessments arc taken; on or before the
second Tuesday ofJa-.uary of each year.
One halt of the m< -ftey received from this
tax into the State Treasury, and the S3UO
- appropriated by the State, annually,
shall be apportioned and distributed to the
several school districts of the State accord
ing to the number of schools therein, and
• heotherhaifsh .il be distributed to the
several distiicts to the whole
number ut children therein; The board of
directors or controllers ot townships, bor
oughs, and cities, may once in each year,
levy and collect a tax not exceeding the
amount of State and l ounty tax author
ized by law to be assessed, to be applied
solelv to purchasing oi p>yi'-g for ground
and the erection of school buddings thereon
The dilectors or controllers shad annual
ly determine the amount of school tax to
be levied for school puipo-es for the ensu
ing year, which, with the amount received
from the State, shall be sufficient to kcej>
the schools open not less than six nor more
than ten months in the year. The other
bill referred to provides that one mill on the
dollar ot taxable prop rty shall be collect
ed and paid into the Mate lreasury annu
ally- The money so paid in shall be set
apart for the benefit of the common schools
one half to be distributed equally among
the schools of the State, and the other halt
as the annual State appropriation for school
is now distributed. lhere shall be paid
semi-annually to the tru.-tees of each acad
emy that complies with tfic provisions of
the act, two hundred dollars, providing
there are not more than to such institu
tions in a county; where there are more
than two, eigtit huudred dollars shall be
divided t.ctween them. Where t: ere is
no academy in a county, the appropriation
to academics shall be made to common
schools. If there is one academy and one
or more graded schools in a county the ap
propnation shall be equally between them.
Each common school, before being entitled
to any part of tile State, appropriation shall
be kept open six months, instead of four, as
heretofore required. The appropriation
made by * his act to be in addition to the
annual appropriations heretofore made.
As the educational interests of the State
are of the greatest importance, 1 have de
voted considerable spa e to a synopsis ot
the act referred to. Every reader of this
paper is interested to some extent in the
public schools, and all should know what
are the provisions of the bilis that are now
under consideration by the Legislature. 1
do not pretend to sa) that either will

them will be adopted with a few modiffea

Mr BUCK A LEW. Mr. President, I
have certain resolutions to present to the
Senate for adoption consequent upon the
information just received from the House
of Representative#. Befpre submitting
those resolutions, however, I mut 9ay a
few words which I think appropriate to
the occasion.
PHILIP JOHNSON, a Representative in the
other House from the eleventh congression
al district of Pennsylvania, is no more. —
The House of which he was A member
has adopted appropriate resolutions to do
honor to his m.-mory, and to express, so
far as any expression by them can go, their
sincere condolence with his wife and
friends over the great her. avement which
they have suffered. I embrace the op
portunity to express some words, suited to
the occasion, and they will be words, not
ot warm or extravagant eulogy, but of sin
cere regard and of genuine respect for the
character and memory of the deceased.
Mr. Johnson was born in Warren coun
ty, in the State of New Jerey, on the I7th
of January, 1818, When quite young lie
removed with his father to Northampton
county, Pennsylvania, where he has ever
since resided. He was a student of and
received his education at La Fayette col
lege, located at Fasten, in that county. —
Subsequently, like many, perhaps a ma
jority of the members doing service in the
Seriate and House, he was a teacher of
youth, and served tor two years in that
capacity. Afterward he was a student at
iaw, and was I think in 1848, admitted to
practice in the several couits of Northamp
ton COUL tv.
In 1803 lie was elected to tlie House <>f
Representatives of the Legislature ot my
State, and was reelected in the year fol
lowing, having thus two years of Service
in that bcJy. In 1860, just before the
cummenc ment of our unexampled dilli -ul
ties ami sufferings in this country, he was
elected from his Congressional district to
the national House of Representatives.—
lie was again elected in 1802, and still
again elected in 18G4, thouga more than
two elections to that branch of Congress
is unusual in the yractice Of my State, 1
think that hahit which the people of that
tate, and many other States have fallen
into is an exceedingly objectionable one.
However, this is not the occasion to dis
euss it. Mr. Johnson was returned tor a
third time, the people of his distriot thus
deviating in his favor from the ordinary
political rule among the people of Penn
ivivania in tie election of members to the
other House.
Almost at the end of his third term he
has been struck down. ,e will tio longer
move autong us to give his counsel or to
utter those words of encouragement which
are as necessary in public as in private life
to the honest and faithful discharge of duty.
Mr. Johnson was my fiiend, and he ex
hibited that friendship on more occasions
than one. It is therefore a duty in which
regret and pleasure are mingled to stand
forward arnica t upon Ins bier an off. ring
ol s< me few, po><r words.
The closing of a life career, especially <>f
one which has bt-en passefi under pub ie
observation, is will caku.atud to arrest the
attention and to subdue t!ie passions of th
human breast. We know that we are ad
destined, sooner or later, to pas through
the dark valley and experience new condi
tions ot existence in a future state ; and
naturallv we feel concern and interest in
the character and fate of the traveler who
precedes us. Human sympathy is roused
in contemplating ' depauure from anions
us to that bourne f-otn w hence none have
returned to revea!to us the dread secrets
of the future. Such occasions as this al
lay passions, because they render the con
tests of the time insignificant in our eyes
They are made to appear to us as the ac
cidents of an imperfect life, utterly unwor

possibilities which lie hidden beyo. d the
portals of death What we can effect in
this lite we wiil be apt to think must appt ar
of little moment in the eye of the| D. itv,
under whose power are the gates of life
andofd<ath; who openeth and no man

in the balance, and our proudest works as
Come, ye proud and lofty o ies of the
earth whose eyes are lifted up and before
whom men make abject obeisance, lie
hold the end of life, to which you are des
tined in common with the humblest and
weakest ot men ! Will you n<t p, rceive
in the august presence of death that wealth
is nothing and fame but empty sound,
and that your ordinary cares and la
bors are but vanity and vexation of sprit!
But thanks be unto God, whose power
and presence till alike the earth and tue
heavens, that He hath established a moral
government lor the world, and that what
soever is excellent and true and noble and
ju-t is pleading in llis sight and accordant
to His will! And that even finite man,
in his low estate, may in some measure
glorify His government and His laws.
Our departed associate had earnestness ;
of conviction and sincerity of soul. He |
did not ever bow baselv to Mammon ;
he did not scorn or scoff the humble ; he
was not abject before the face ol power
he was not subservient to the passions of
others ; not did he shrink and cower be- 1
fore difficulties and opposition. While he ;
was gentle an J generous to the appeals of
friendship, he was courag ous and biave
in the presence of danger.
But that feature ot his character as a
public man for which I bespeak particular
commendation and piaisu was his fidelity.
He was no changeling. During the last
hours ot his existence he had faith in and
stood by that creed which had fired his zeal
in boyhood by the banks ot the Delaware.
He did uot make shipwreck of his faith ; '
he did not abandon his honest Convictions
when solicited by temptation or assailed by ,
disaster. He was firm and intrepid in de- i
feruling what he esteem dto be the rigid, !.
arid in denouncing and opposing what tie
boiievtd to he wrong ; and his blows upon
political oppoiunts, whether of defense or
ol aggressions, were both manly and effec- 1
tive. His warfare WHS honorable, while
his sagacity adapted him to leadmsbip and
secured him within the limited field of ac
tion frequent and signal triumphs.
He made no pretentions to high ability.
He claimed no front rank among the men
of his age. But the place which he chose
to fill he filled completely and with honor
and his chief ambition to be considered a
true man by his fellows was completely
I have' reason to believe* that our deceas
ed associate, in. spite of the depressing in
fluence of disease and of wljaj he regarded
as unfortunate and nnpropit'ous oeeprren
ces in the political world about him, was
not dispirited and unhopeful of the future
of his country. lie looked beyond the
clouds to that light which, though it mat
be obscured, can not be extinguished, and
which will surely return after a time to
adorn and beautify theearth. He knew
that war gives way in time to peace and to
the works of peace ; that charity and good
will, though thev depart lr<m a nation, will
return to its councils and to the hearts of
its p' ople ; that the wounds of conflict may
be healed ; lives sacrificed may be replac
ed ; industries suspe ded may resume their
activity ; and that vice and pa-sion and
crime, sown broadcast from the wings of
war, may be cln eked in growth and sub
dued by generous statesmanship and by
Christian laba. He left us with his faith
in the destiny of our country unsubdued
and unbroken . and shall we not share in
that hope and contibute somewhat to its
fulfillment ? Are there 110 duties upon the
living to execute tin* designs and complete
the works of the departed ? At leart let
us be hopeful also, and confident in the fu
ture of our country. If evils afflict us. if
dangers tlmaten, if wickedness prevail, let
ns "bate no jot of heart or hop.-," but em
ulate that spirit, that indomitable courage,
witli which Milton, old ami blind and poor,
within hearing of a riba d court anu sur
rounded by a degenerate people, sang the
advent of truth, justice, and brotherhood
among men.
Mr, President, I offer the following res
olutions :
Resolved, That the Senate has received
with deep sensibility the announcement of
the death of Hon. Philip J hnson, late a
member of the House of Representatives
from 1 lie istate of Pennsylvania.

of the deceased, will go into mourning by
wearing crape on the left arm for the resi
due of the session.
Resolved, That the members of the Sen
ate will attend the funeral of Hon. Philip
Johnson to-morrow, at the hour designated
by the House of Representatives.
Resolve I, That, as a fuither mark of re
spect for the memory of the deceased, the
Senate do now adjourn.
The resolutions were adopted nemine
contra dictate ; and the Senate adjourned.

It is made on the host principle. Its frame is
oomjioeed of SOLID PLATES. NO jir au imer
iere with the harmony of its working and no sud
den shock can damage its machinery. Eveiv piece
is made and finished by machinery, (itseif tauious
for its novelty, as well as for its effectivenes) and is
therefore poterh made. The watch is what all
■iiicuaV'sm should be —ACCURATE,- SIMPLE,
high grades, to costly for general use, foreign
watches are chiefly made by women and beys Such
watches are composed of several hundreo pieces,
screwed and rivited together, and require constant
repairs to keep tbsui in any kind of order. All per
sons who have carried "ancres" '-lepines" and
"English Patent Levers," are perfectly woll aware
ol the truth of this s ateuient.
At the beg.nning of our enterprise more than ten
years ago. it was our first object to make a thorough
ly good low priced watch for the million, to take
ha pi ire of theseiore ign impositions ; the refuse of
foreign factories, which were entirely unsaleable at
borne and perlectly worthless everywhere.
How well we have accomplished this, ranj bo
unJerstand from the fict that after many years of
public trial, we now make MORE THAN HALF
j TED STATES, and that no others have ever given
| such universal satisfaction. While this department
| of rur business is continued with increased facilities
j for perfect work, we are at pfesent engngeopin ttie
j manufacture of watches of the very HIGHEST
ed by anything hitherto made by ourselves, and
unsurpassed by anything made in the world. For
this purpose we have the amplest facilities. We
1 nave eereted an addi.ionto our main building ex
pressly for this branch of our business, and have
filled it with the best work men in s nice. New
machines and appliances have been copstrocted
: which perforin their work wi'h consummated delica
!ey and exactness The choicest and most approved
materials only aroused, and we challenge compari
son between this gr ide ol our work and the finest
imported chronometors. We do not pretend- to sell
I our witches for los money than foreign fwatohifs,
but we do assert without fear of crntradietiou that
for the same money our product is incomparably
superior. All our watches, ef whatever grade, are
ally w irranted, and this w irrantee is g>o I at all
times against us or our agent* in all parts of the
