Had he a candidate for the Speakership he should, standing upon that principle, claim the right to know his views upon questions in which he was interested ^ but he had no such candidate.

The > information was received, among other sources, from officers appointed by tho national administration, to undertake the performance of various judicial and' executive functions, but which they found'on their arrival to be utterly impossible.

Can it be wondered, then, why my admiration should seek this way of expressing itself? You-are probably aware that this is ihe land of the Black Diamond, alias Anthracite Coal—also of " unlimited whiskey," lager beer, and sawerkraut. The first mentioned article constitutes our chief wealth; and in this immediate vicinit...
