DAILY PRESS. POBTLAN 1>. Friday Morn in.;. December 7, 1865. . 4n liuiioi’luul C'ouMiilulioiial Aiiuad ■Meat. Headers liave doubtless observed that liep resentative Lawrence, ot Ohio, has introduced a bill to repeal so much of the Civil Appro priation act of the last session as relates to the increased compensation of members ot ('ougress. Mr. Schenck offered an amendment providing for the refunding ot the extra com pensation received, and the whole matter was referred to the Judiciary Committee, where there is perhaps some danger that it may quietly sleep. Mr. Lawrence also introduc ed a hill to reduce the mileage, which was re ferred to the Mileage Committee, and which the country will hope to hear ti-oui again. As expenses now range, it is alleged that the compensation fi red by the obnoxious act is not excessive. Probably it is not. That is an unreasoning economy which seeks to se em e the services of tirst-elass men at second class prices. It will be an unhappy day for the country when nobody can afford to serve i u t’ougress, except men who ate willing to pay roundly tor the honor, llut a bargain is a bargain. Members ot the Thirty-ninth Con gress were elected with a distinct knowledge of the compensation towhicli they were entitled If they think that compensation too little, they can increase it tor the benefit of the next Con iri-eis, but it was not becoming to raise tneir own salaries. They accepted their nomina. tious, knowing that if they were elected they would he ex(>ected to serve tor a fixed salary To increase that salary for their own advan tage was an infraction of the tacit understand ing between them and their constituents. It is still iu the power of the States to pre vent the recurrence of sucli a proceeding. In the appendix to Laiimnu's useful dictionary of Congress, we find subjoined to the first ten ame..dments to the Constitution, two otheis, proposed at the same time but never adopted. These twelve amendments were proposed to the State Legislatures when there were but eleven States iu the Union. While they were sti'l pending, the eleven increased to fourteen and at the critical moment just before they be came fifteen, it was found that ten of the se ries had been ratified by eleven States. In this manner the first ten amendments now belonging to the Constitution were barely saved, eleven being three fourths of fourteen, but not three fourths of fifteen. The other two have not been further acted on ami are st-ill pending, neither accepted nor definitely rejected. One of them, the second in the se ries, as originally proposed, reads thus: No law varying the compensation for the services of the Senators and Representatives alia 11 take effect until an election of Represen tatives shall have intervened. This amendment has received the assent of the Legislatures of seven States—Vermont, New Hampshire, Delaware, Maryland, Vir ginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.— Four States—Rhode Island,New York, New Jersey anl Pennsylvania—rejected it while accepting the other ten. Massachusetts, Con necticut and Georgia never acted on’ any of the se ies, and the twenty-two Slates si ace admitted have never acted oil this. A corres pondent of the Boston Advertiser thinks this would be a proper time for the twenty-five States which have never acted on this amend ment to take it up. and for the four States which rejected it to reconsider and perhaps reverse their action. In no better way cer tainly could the people mark 'lic-ir deliberate sense of the impropiiety ofiheineasure crowd ed through at the close of the last session, than by decreeing through their State legisla tures that the act shall not be repeated. Salary of Route Agents.—'\Ve he-u ilia1 a movement is being made by the route agents to secure an increase of pay. The movement is fully justified. Even before the war, eight hundred dollars a year was small pay for men qualified to discharge the responsible duties of route agents; how much smaller then, must it be since the cost of living has advanced a hun dred per cent All other kinds of labor etm tnand wages to correspond with the enhanced cost of living, while the route agent has re ceived no addition to his pay, which in reality has amounted to no more than lour hundred dollars a year for the last three years. ^ How he has been able to live on such a pittance, it is difficult to conceive, especially when it is con sidered that he is away from home half his time. We are glad to see that the Postmaster General has in his annual Report, earnestly urged upon Congress the duty of not only rais ing the pay of route agents prospectively but also of allowing them back pay for services un remunerated. We hope this class of public ser vants will be properly paid, and at once. The Song of Roland.—la our notice ot the London Quarterly tor October we referred to an admirably written article on “Ancient Lit erature in France.” The writer of that article gives his theory of the tumous “Chanson de Roland,” as follows: The examination of the "Chanson de Ro land” entirely overthrows, in our opinion, the theories of some ol the most pedantic critics who have written on the subject of epic poetry, and who insist that all the primitive epics— those, indeed, which they alone deign to style such— have been created by a sort of sponta neous agglutination in the popular mind, and differ not only in character but in kind from the epical e Repositions of cultivated times.— The defeat of Roncesvaux—which was, in fact, the surprise of the rear-guard of Cliarlemague by the Gascons in the Pyrenees—struck the popular imagination most strongly, not only because it was the si ugle disaster of Charle magne, but from the number of illustrious chiefs who fell on the occasion. The doleful echoes of the marvelous horn of Roland re rounded for ages not only in the gorges of the Pyrenees, but reached also the most distant countries of Europe, and extended even to Ice land and Asia. The simple facts of history are, that Charlinagne made a successful expedition 10 opain at tnc inv ration oi one oi the Sara cen chiets, and suffered a partial disaster from an ambuscade of Gascou mountaineers ia the Pyrenees on his way back to France. This happened in 778. For nearly three centuries after, this event was the subject of Teutonic ballad and popular song. Roland, styled by E-'iohardt “Prelect of the March of Britauny, llrodlatidus praefectus limitis Britannici, was doubtless as great a popular favorite as Murat or Ney or any of the most daring generals of Napoleon; and this one great tragic catastro phe predominated over all Carlovingian legend an l ballad till the time that Theroulde took possession of it and threw the traditional song on the subject into a regular epic form.- - Whether lie took it directly from the German, or whether the poem had, like the curious frag ment, “Walther of Aquitaine,” assumed a Lat in form, from which the trouvere derived his epic material, or whether it already existed in a French version, it is impossible in these times to discover; but the poem, as it is now read, ev idently passed through the mould of a single mind, and that mind, in our opinion, was clear iy acquainted with the great classic models of Rome. Therou de took possession of the sub ject of the death of Roland, and made it his own three centuries after the event, in precise ly the same way as Goethe appropriated the lc gaud of Faust, after about an equal lapse of time, or as Ariosto seized upon Carioviugian legends for his province four centuries after Theroulde. The Gamins or New York.—A correspond ent of the New York Times says: We hud occasion lately to employ an agent to look for those drifting waifs of society—the street boys—at night, near the theatres and the low lodging-houses. He went on an evening last week to the “Old Brewery;” going rather too hastily into the “pit,” he found himself caught in a swelling throng of “bummers ” petty thieves, pickpockets, little pcdlerg street boys and young roughs of all ages from’ six to twenty. His watch pockets were speedily tried for, hut he was well prepred, and soon took refuge in the orchestra to watch this sin gular mass of young humanity below. After carefully counting, he estimated that there were seven hundred young lads in the house who were of the vagrant and homeless class, and as he is an “expert” with boys, his judge ment may be relied on. They were mainly about ten or twelve years of age, ragged, ver minous, dirty, “shock-headed,” without shoes or proper clothing for the approaching winter. Some three hundred, he estimated, had no shirts at all. There they were—some quarrel hng, swearing, thieving, ready for any crime which could give them a living: some simply neglected, ill-clad, poorly fed, even hungry, preferring the shows of the theatre to the bread they might have bought. The story of “Gavroche” in “Les Miserable!” maybe thought improbable, but there came a--— lately to our Lodgind*hoO»e In East Eleventh street, near Avenue C., a very bright street rover—a true yamin—who bad aleptfor montha in tbe holloa iron pipes ol tlie new Harlem Bridge. Into these, it seems, a boy can almost walk fur forty feet, and they are cuuaidajtal very comfortable lied-roourt in damp, cool nights. This lad, too, was a soldier’s orphan, j The Ki-|>oi*« of thi' steerelury of the Navy. ■ Tlie operations of the Navy during the year have not been of a slow or unimportant char acter, though there lias been nothing to call for warlike action, unless we are to suppose ! that Admiral Bell lias lieen adminhtenug some chastisement to the Chinese ruffians who as saulted our Consul-General at New Chwaug.

Of tlie vessels in the squadron service, we have had ou the Eastern coast of Asia and Af rica, during the year, eight vessels, tinder com tnaud of Rear-Admiral Bell—including the famous Hartford (flagship.) To this fleet has been assigned, among other commissions, the duty of visiting all the open ports of China, and huutiug down—wherever found—as many as possible of the pirates that infest the Chi nese waters. The North Atlantic Squadron, under Rear-Admiral Palmer, has had a pleas ant summer’s cruising at and arouud the fish ing grounds on the Northeastern coast, after having taken a survey of events at the Antilles and other tropical latitudes. The Fishery question, which it was feared might give rise to collisions on what has been claimed as British uiaritime ground, caused Admiral Palmer no anxiety whatever. For the Secretary says:— “The liberal anti conciliatory policy of the Brit ish Government dissipated all apprehended diffi culties." 'the South Atlantic Squadron has done doty mainly on the west coast of Africa and on the east coast of South America. It numbered eight vessels, tlie flagship lieiug the Brooklyn. The North Pacific Squadron has been princi pally engaged in the gratefulta.sk of aiding in the laying of a cable ou the Northwestern Coast; while the South Pacific fleet, tinder Commander Rodgers, had a short sight of something like active service during the bom b.rdmentof Valparaiso. The Secretary re peats his formal approval of the abstinence of Commander Rodgers from active interference in the quarrel between the Spaniards and the Chilians. The Gulf Squadron has had to do watch duty on the Eastern coast of Mexico, and ten vessels were employed in that necessa ry duty. The movements of the European Squadron—the most important of all—under Admiral Goldsborough. are familiar to most of our readers. Like the others, it has not slept at anchor, but made it a duty to show the flag at as many points as possible. New Publications. Coal, Iron and Oil; or Thp American Prac tical Miner. A Plain and Popular Work on Our Mines and Mineral Resources, and a Text-book or Guide to their Economical De velopment. AVith Numerous Maps and En gravings. By Samuel Harries Daddow, Prac tical Miner and Engineer of Mines and Ben jamin Bannan, Editor of The Hina’s Jour nal. I Vol. 8vo., pp. 800. Pottsville, Pa: Ben iamin Bannan, Publisher. (Sold by Davis Brothers.) It would be hard to find a single volume con taining more of minute and varied information on any subject than has b en compressed into tins. It illustrates and explains in a manner adapted to popular reading, the origin, geologi cal disposition and formation of Coal, Iron and Oil, tlicir peculiarities, characters, and general distribution, and the economy of mining, man ufacturing, and using them; gives general de scriptions of the coal -fields and coal-minc9 of the world, and special descriptions of the an thracite fields and mines of Pennsyl vnnia, and the bituminous fields of the United States, the iron-districts and iron-trade of our country, and the geology and distribution of Petroleum, the statistics, extent, production, and trade in Coal, Lon, and Oil, and such useful informa tion ou mining and manufacturing matters as science and practical experience have develop ed to the present time. Tlie author is a prac tical mining engineer, and his treatise is as nearly exhaustive as anything of the kind well could be. Some of his theories, as for instance those relating to the formation of coal and the generation of petroleum are somewhat, novel, but appear to be based upon careful observa tion. It is of course impossible in a daily paper to enter into a critical review of a work of these proportions. We can only indicate its chiracter, and refer the reader to the book it self for fuller information, believing that it will lie tOund the most complete manual for the practical colliery manager and oil-seoker yet published.

This story, which has been running through Our Young Folks during the past year, is here issued in tasteful form by the publisher? of that magazine. Mrs. Whitney has few superiors as a writer for the young. Every girl in the coun try should feel indebted to her for an introduc tion to Faith Gartney and Leslie Goldtbwaite. Other personages in this story, too, the boy, Dakie, and dear, naughty Sin Saxon l with her • howls” and her crow’s nest, will doubtless be well appreciated. The illustrations increase the attractiveness of the book. Hints on Common Politeness. By D. C. Coleswohthy, Boston. Packard, Portland, pp. DC.. Here is a little book full of good sense and amiable purpose, with a kind of shrewdness, which reminds you continually of Dr. Frank lin—from which the author expects “neither fame nor money." We think he will not be disappointed. An approving conscience, with the sincere approbation of the few must be his reward. The politeness here recommended is not that of the world, much less that of Lord Ches terfield. It is that which our Savior taught, both by precept and example. We are to do as we would be done by in little things—in honor preferring one another—taking the lower seats and there waiting to lie called up higher, &c., &c. Were those, who claim to be gentlemen, always Christian gentlemen, then we might say without irreverence that Jesus of Nazar eth was the most perfect gentleman that ever walked the earth; but inasmuch as the word gentleman means anything rather than that; politeness itself not being regarded as a Christian virtue, though rightly understood it might be a most agreeable form of godliness—we must forego that interpretation and let the worldling have their way, while Christians betake them selves to another and a narrower one. The book is well worth owning. J. N. Centennial Sermon. By Rev. L. S. Coan of Booth bay. In the crowded state of your columns, you cannot allow such a notice of this little pamph let as it richly deserves. All I can say, there fore, ipust be said in a few lines. It is worthy of serious attention—eloquent both in thought and language, and full of such statistics as will soon be wanted for our ecclesiastical history. The author we are told, has just prepared a lecture on Young America, which, knowing what we do of him, wo feel justified in recom mending to our Lecture Committees, in ad vance. _ J. if. Notes on Poems and Reviews, is the title of a small pamphlet issued by Carleton of New York, containing the reply of Mr. Charles Swinburne, the “love-cracked” author of Laus Veneris, to his various critics. Mr. Swinburne adopts something of the high and insolent tone ot Mr. Charles Reade,but it is quite plain that he feels somewhat uncomfortable under the censure which he has called forth. “Speak, fob Thy Servant heareth!”— Bradley & company, Philadelphia, have just published a very beautiful engraving, the work of John Sartain, from Sir Joshua Reynolds’ painting of the child Samuel. It is a fine spec imen of the skill of this justly celebrated en graver, and one of the best pictures of the kind which we have lately seen. SPECIAL NOTICES. Long Sought Far ! Come at Ltfot!
