the expense of the Yorktown centen

and Holman opposing.
Mr Oobb , ( lnd. ) said ho was not
willing that a committee directed to
do a certain thing at a cost of $40,000 ,
should , bo countenanced or overlooked
in silence in having expended $32,000
moro than they were directed to do.
To show how they had expended it ho
sent to the clerk's desk to have road
a bill sent to the committee for wine * ,
&o. The bill footed up $6,259. The
items were champagne , brandies ,
wines , whisky , cigars , etc. , etc Ono

Mr. Tucker ( Va. ) thought thii pro-

of honorable gentlemen directed to
entertain our invited guests had done
BO in a proper manner , and to have
done so shabbily would have been an
insult to the invited guests.

Tucker's remark * .

What Philadelphia BuslnoiaMon Say
in Their Advertisements
The fooling in Pennsylvania is quito
strikingly shown by the following
pirited deliverance with which a
loading merchant fills a column of big
, ypo in the advertising pages of the
Philadelphia papers at a cost of sov-
orval hundred dollars :
"Whom the Ooda Would Destroy Th y
Fir = t Make Msd "
Owing to the cowardly and un
called-for threatonincs against the
business interests of Philadelphia , as
well as the business intorosta of tbo
whole state of. Pennsylvania made
by Senator J. Donald Ormoron at the
Continental hotel hotel List Saturday
that if a certain line of political
action , which ho in a most lordly
manner has mapped out , should not
get the full assistance of manufac
turers and business men generally
owing to this , I eay , wo are , forsooth ,
to have nn old-fashioned panic.
According to Mr. Cameron's ideas ,
businessmen and manufacture ! ! count
only as so many sheep , to bo scared ,
pushed , and driven in any direction
whenever this self-appointed shepherd
calls out his faithful watch dogs to
drive them as it were to the shambles.
Kor-it is wqne th a .j ( rth 'in the

only threatened against the protec
tive tariff of our country.
HJ5.threat in-'idle. Ho dare not
carry it out , nor does his past record
show that our manufacturers have
much to thank him for.
Another idea of Mr. Cameron's is-
t manufacturers atJd business men
are a pack of political tramps and
Illco-huiitcrs of no standing or inde
pendence , whom ho can order round
ind levy upm , or he would not duro
to menace in such an impudent man
ner the industries * f our city and
Time has boon when the insult
offered to tha manufacturers and buii-
HU8S i.eoplo of our city and sta'o by
Mr. Cameron on Saturday last would
load to a political revolution against
euch unheard-of tyranny. The very
ention of the man's naina who dared
to trammel these liberties most dear
to all m < m would bring forth nothing
but words of execration and abhor-
Manufacturers and business men
may do as they please abi ut following
ana obeying tha commands of this our
modern slave-driver , cither through
'our of loss of business or of thu love
of being ririvon ; but I know of some
narinfndurors and bulineas men 'hat ' ,
Imving largo interests at stikoin Phil
adelphia , will ueitturfor the threat
ened loss nor promised congressional
loner Btilrmt to null base dicmtion or
deviate ono hair's breadth from the
ino of political reotitudo and reform.
With such men will remain the
icartv ' sympathy and co-operation of ,
