Mr. Bale lias introduced a bill in the Legis- I lature to reduce'the expenses, and secure the j faithful payment of all taxes. It is an impor tant bill, of which we furnish our readers with the following synopsis : The first section provides that all laws hereto fore passed which authorize and require tire ap pointment of collectors of taxes be and the same are hereby repealed*, and hereafter it shall he j the dutv of all assessors, school directors, suprg-; visors of roads, and overseers of the poor of this Commonwealth when they shall have made an assessment of taxes necessary for the respective j purposes of their township or district, according to the provisions of existing laws, thev shall , make a return thereof to the County Commis sioners on cr before the day of in each and every year. The second section makes it the duty of the County Commissiofiers, so soon as thev shall re ceive the returns provided for in the first sec tion of this act, to cause transcripts thereof to j l>e made, exhibiting tin* amount of each tax payable, and cause five days notice thereof to be given TV .lie Assess-orof the townsuip, whose dutv it is hereby made to give such notice to each individual ofrsuch tax so assessed, and of the tin*;.* and place where he may appeal from such taxation, and when the appeals have been held, as is hv law provided, the said ( irnmis sioners shall cause duplicates thereof for each and every township, to be made out and placed in the hands of the County Treasurer, for Col lection and disbursement.

JNO. ' IV. FORNEY will he read with great interest by hl3 numerous friends in Bedford county: ; WASHINGTON, Jan. o, 1855. < Gentlemen : —lt would give rr.e sincere plea- | sure to meet uiu on the 17th of January, but i r am coir-]>**! led to remain at my post in \\ ash inglon. Tiiis must be mv excuse for declining ,■ your warm and pressing invitation. There is much in the career of Benjamin [ Franklin (whose birth-day you propose to com memorate) which may he contemplated with interest. f Who can faithfully describe his character, j ins progress, and the trophies of his experience? , In his high individuality we have an example eloquent of encouragement to ail ages ami to all j men. H>* educated himself. In early life he disclosed those elements which, ripening after- t wards, gave to the world a statesman, a patriot, • a sage | He Jjctran his struggle with fortune penniless and poor, am) subsequently bafiied the j intrigues of the English Court, and aroused ail , .France to that appreciation ot himself and his . cans" which made him the embodiment of the |( American idea that finally electr.fied man- < kind, arid made us an independent nation. ! Recollect that all this occurred before science ( had covered our Continent with blessings—be- j fore the application of steam as a propelling pow er— while our communities were lew and fee- ( hie—while oppression hung like a mid-night j pall upon our borders—while the savage roam- . ed the master of our then limited frontiers, and ( even carried his barbaric warfare into our infant . settlements —and long before Relocation had be- , come a common advantage—before the printing press had bee ::m? a necessity—even in advance ( of the liberty he toiled for. and the discoveries that have made his fame as immortal as those skies which his genius enabled him to read, arid those electric fires which he deprived of lerrqr, and prepared for the future discoverer to applv to the uses of mankind. Am 1 not | justified, therefore, when I speak of this rare individuality as an eloquent encouragement to the printers of the present day—and not to , them alone, but to all that class of young men, who look to this country as the field where En-1 ergv, Integrity, Perseverance and Patriotism, j are the bright oracles that promise and ensure ; | success ? Well may the people of the old world turn to the antiquated and dusty records of European history, and toil through pages stained with blood and crime, to find ore such example for their children *. and well may they look forward, with beating hearts and kindling eves, to that Country which Franklin aided to j I build up, as the giand theatre where mingling I races, and creeds, and ideas, are at least to har monize in the vindication and establishment of the truth that man is capable of seif-govei n ment. The American Printing Press has not only | been fruitful of advantages because of it < r*-la i lions to commerce, to religion, and togood gov- j j ernment not alone in the general justice of its ; views, and in i's fearless assertions of broad and powerful truths, but because it educates a class | of men, v./io, in their time, may he called upon to educate and direct public opinion. In the piinting oliice the mind instinctively grasps the j gr'*at thoughts which the hand puts into solid 1 shape. The hours passed swiftly and sweetly i as "Benjamin Franklin, printer," gathered his j store of Knowledge for his daily task, feeding j his mind and his body at the same time. I hoit- , 1 sands are now alive fir> i with the same i-mo tions: an !. who knows, marching forward to the same dazzling destinv ? But how widely j different is the condition of the "printer hoy," i now, compared with the davs when Franklin j : struggled along the rugged path of his earlv trials ? The education of the masses is at once | the dutv and the glory of our Country. New ■ fields ol entei prize are discovered with marvel- j l itis rapidity, new sources of information ripen ed for the common welfare, our territory ad vances upon the receding footsteps of barbaric rule and decaving customs, our flag, like the ; Roman eagle, flies in the uttermost quarters of • ; the earth, and our name penetrates into those) regi ms where even the sun himself refuses to i ' shine for half the year. But the Press—the ' press is everywhere 1 It travels with our ar- ; j iriies, and unfurls itself simultaneously with : our flag. While the forest falls before the axe j of the pioneer progress, and even before popu lation 1 as found a spot whereon to lav its weary head, the Press proclaims the opinions of the day, and fights the battles of truth, even as man contends against the obstacles of nature.— In the crowded citv, in the quiet village, on the broad prarie "for which th** speech of Eng- I ; land has no name," on the deck of the gallant | ship, which cleaves strange s**ns and floats to undiscovered climes, in the cottage and the pal ace, you will find the American Press. It is j : not 100 cheap to be a luxury to the rich, nor j too dear to be a burden to the poor. It speaks to distant friends at the same day and almost at | the same moment. It fills t: e public mind j with the elements of conscious independent* and power. It revives the public spirit, and ! brightens the pathway to honor and to fame.— j , But, gentlemen, whitethes * things are so, let ius not forget the startling responsibilities de volved upon the future conductors of the Amer ican press. To be equal to these is to lie equal to a most Irving and exacting vocation. Ex cose rue f>r an allusion to my own hum!;!** ex- j perience. I know how deficient lam in many of the attributes of the editorial profession : for ; to me the printing office and the world's battle j have been the only schools. Yet I know also the trials and the tribulations that attend upon it. There is much however, m Enthusiasm, 1 Application, and Perseverance—and, above a!!, in the fearless faith which disaster cannot subdue nor slander overcome—and he who make these ; his guiding stars cannot readily be driven from his c urse. But I have already said more than j j enough. When the death of Benjamin Franklin was ; | announced in the French National Assembly in June, 1799, the President of that grave as- ! semblage, spoke of the departed Printer in terms of historical and memorable eloquence. I bor row his language, in the following sentiment, which you will please read to vour assembled company : Benjamin Franklin: "G.oat nun are the fathers ot universal humanity; their loss ought! to be felt as a common misfortune by all thef tribes of the great human family ; and it belongs? to a nation still affected by all the which accompany the achievement of their lib erty, and which owes its enfranchisement es- i sentiallv to the progress of the public reason,' to be the first to give the example of the filial j gratitude of the people to their true benefac tots." j ' Your friend and fellow-craftsman, : i j J.

The Senate again resumed the consideration of the armv-appmpriaf ion bill; which was dis- ; cussed bv Messts.

The Chambersburg W/o'fr, in an article headed i j "Know.Notfaing Defeats," holds the following lan-! ! gunge : It is utterly impossible in a country proverbial for' s freedom of thought and freedom of action arid still- j rajj*y as is, ours, to jjive permanency to a political i element that i- To be controlled in secret, oath-bound , caucuses, and that imposes upon its members, under ' penalty of formal excommunication, the support ofj its tr.eir and measures. Such a system of political machinery may work to a charm while 'here is no; disappointed ambition TJ^appease, no peafonarl pre-I j fereiices to sacrifice, no private griefs to heal; but j let such at: organization once become supreme over 1
