.We confess that at the commencement

' rjathtes were- wholly enlisted On the side
' vf the Allies. '. We have none now, ex
cept for Turkey. . To our mind the ob
. ject of the different parties enjoyed in
-, the present War, are becoming daily
4 more apparent ; England is engaged in
'.' it to protect and increase her commerce.
. France, the leading spirit, seeks to-strike
a blow against Protestantism,. All the
Catholic powers of Europe .except Eng
" 1 land- are either engaged iu crusade
" againBt Russia, or laying still, so far as
cBy; outward movement is c?tcerned.
"; The ultimate . intentions of France and
- England are entirely different. France,
"before this War closes, will have the beet
-disciplined . soldiers in the "world--her
.fleet ; the best--and . we. ithink - will not
have any particular abjections to making
demonstration on England. 'We con-1
ceive it would be the' pride and glory of

Already are reinforcements from all parts

Mr. Editor: I noticed in your pa
per of last week a communication signed
" Stockholder," calling for light on the
subject of the Franklin and Warren
Rail Road. - I paBS over the exception
able portions of the article, and although
the name of the writer of that article is
refused, and I know not whom to answer,
yet I feel a pleasure in giving Stockltol
clers whatever information I have on the
subject. You are aware of the fact,
that the financial affairs of the whole
road are managod by an Executive Com
mittee. who reDOrt Quarterly to the
1 a a "
board, and to the Stockholders at each
annual meeting. Such report was made
at the last anneal meeting of the Stock
holders, and would have been published
ere this, but it has been retained for the
purpose of having it accompanied with
the Engineer's Report, which is in a
course of preparation. As many of the
Stockholders were not present at the an
nual meeting, the Executive Committee
called a meeting of the Stockholders of
the Eastern Division of the Road, to meet
at Franklin, on the 23d of last month.
The proceedings of that meeting are
thus noticed, by " The Cleveland Daily
Plaindealer " of Doc, 2d, 1854.
Franklin and Warrea Rs.il Road.
"In this time of a stringent money
market, and the general suspension of
rail roads and all Other improvements, it
is refreshing to come across the evidence
that there are some companies that hare
not srone beyond their means, nor spent
their money too freely when tney naa
plenty.' We notice in the columns of
the Portace Sentinel the proceedings of
a ineetiug held at 1' ranmin juins, on me
23d of November, of the Stockholders
of the Franklin and Warren Rail Road
Company. Representatives from a dis
tauco of eighty miles were present, and
the number of . delegates present was
very large. An abstract of the books
of the Company was exhibited, from
which it appears that they are not in
debt a dollar, and that all the works
thus far completed are extensive The
proposition made to the meeting was,
that instalments sbtfuld continue to be
collected on subscriptions large enough
to go forward speedily, and complete and
equip the road between Warren and
Akron". , ,. . :
A series of resolutions were presented
by a Committee appointed for the pur
pose, which, we believe were passed
without a dissenting voice. We copy
such as show the tone of the meeting :
Resolved, That we have full confi
dence iu the ultimate completion of the
Franklin and Warren Rail Road, and
we would urge upon each and every sub
scriber the importance of promptly pay
ing up his subscription as fast as the
same shall become due. ;
V m - t f sf 11 .
Resolved. That we have the fullest
confidence in the management of-our
Directors and the financial condition
$f this Division of-the Road, as shown
bv statements and the books ot the com
pany, this day exhibited, entitles them
tothe confidence ot all tne otocKnoiuers.
, ulesoived, Xhat tlje Anreetorsare here
by instructed and required to push for
ward and complete that part of .the road
from Akron to Warren, and stock the
same as soon as practicable, and . we
hereby protest against any suspension of
the work, as detrimental to tne Dest in
terests of the Road, as well as injustice ,
to paying subscribers.- -
The Bectioo through which this por
tion of the Road will run, is one of the
richest in the State, and the subscribers
along the route are abundantly able to
Day up. and they will do so. We may
expect, therefore, that,- right in the face
of hard times, there will-be one Rail
Road progressing steadily, and before
the present financial sky has become
clear, a most important part of it will
become completed,, and trains running
over it. That demonstrates the ability
with which its affairs are administered.
With regard to our own County, I
would say, that, the Executive Com
mittee on Wednesday last, informed m?
that, they would hold a similar meeting
in Ashland, in the forepart of next
month ; notice of which will be giveu to
every Stockholder if possible, in Ashland
District. All will be invited to partici
pate in the meeting, and make any en
quiries they see fit.
' In the mean time for the satisfaction
of Stockludders and other friends of the
Road, I would say, that I have obtained
from the Engineer a Bill of the Engi
neering, with the amount of grading,
excavation, embankment, clearing, grub
bing, masonry, &c, alreadv done.
amounting to $50,635,43 and I have
pail for Right of Way fencing, &c, over
$3,000, making in actual expenditures in
this County, the sum of near $59,000.
The amount of collections in th a Ash
land District arc as follows :
Paid to the Bank...- $12,136,31
" ' " Collector . 39,839,25
The Bank has paid on Treas
urer's Draft... $52,498,18
; The Bank has paid more than receiv
ed, $552,62, and the Company have paid
expenses for labor Right of Way, &c,
in Ashland County, at least $7,000 more
than they have received from Stockhold
ers in -this County. "This is owing to
the fact that most of the Engineering
has been " paid ' from the Treasury at
Franklin, and they have also paid some
on the estimates made in this County.
I hope the above may be satisfactory
to all payrrtg Stockholders. They can
make further enquiry of the Executive
Committee who will be here at the
meeting in January. ."'
B. B. CLARK.
Secretary of Treasury's Report.
The Report commences yery proper
ly with a view of tho condition cf the
Treasury, from' which we learn that the
actual receipts in the Treasury for the
fiscal year ending 30th June, 1834. from
all sources were 73,549,705, which with
the balance in the Treasury on" 1st Ju
ly, 1853," $21,942,892, give a total for
the servive of.the year of 895,492,597.
The, actual ' expenditures for tho j-ear
were '$75,354,630, leaving a balance iu
the Treasury on 1st July 1854 of$20,
137,867. The receipts for the quarter
ending Sept. 30, 1854, were $'2 1,521, -302.
The estimates for the remaining
three quarters of the fiscal year are $42,
500,000. - Tho. amount t f our public
debt outstanding on the 1st of July
1854 was $47,160,503.
The Secretary anticipates a falling off
in the customs receipts, owing to the Ke
cipVocity treaty and tho short crops.
The table of the tonage of the United
States exhibits an increase for the year
of 385,892 tons. Tho table exports and
imports shows that the import of the
year were $20,331,317 in excess of the
The state of the Revenue induced the
Secretary to again call the attention of
Congress to the propriety of reducing the
Revenue from customs so that no more
mouey shall be received into the Treas
ury than is required for an economical
administration of the Government. He
recommends but three rates of duty, viz :
100,40, and 25 per cent., iu place of the
eight schedules at present iu use. The
recommendation for a repeal of the fish
ing bounties is renewed, and the subject
of drawback duties and refined surgar is
also recommended to the consideration of
Tho statement as to the currency of
the country gives the total amount of
gold and silver coin in tbe circulation on
30th September at 824 1 ,UUU;UUU, against
which tho total Baukcirculation is $204,
689,209. It appears from the report of
the Banks, submitted to Congress on
the 6th of May, 1854, that in 1850, '51
thero were- 879 Banks in the United
States, with a capital of $227,807,533,
and in 1853, '54, there were 1,203 Banks,
with a capital of $301,7o0,071, being an
increase of $73,948,533. In 1850 and
'5 1 the circulation of the 889 Banks
was$153,lG5,'25i ; deposits, $123,957.

'54 the circulation of the 1,203 Banks
was $204,639,203 ; the deposits, $183,-
188,744 : and there was due to other
bauks $59,322,162 ; and together, $443,
2000,113, making an increase of $1 12,

of $59,4 1 0.453, being an increase of $ 1 0,

The Secratary is opposed to the cir
culation of notes of a email denomination.
The Secretary culls for further aid for
protecting human life from shipwreck on
our coasts and suggests whither we should
not provide greater security in the con
struclion of steam passenger vessels, or
leave them as now, to 6hip owners. He
also recommends the continuance of the
In view ot recent frauds by VOUectors
of Customs in Cleveland, Oswego, &c,
the report calls for such additional leg
islation as may be deemed necessary.
The balance of the report refers mainly
to the opperations of the various depart
ments of Treasury.
The United States having placed her
receipts and expenditures Upon the con
stitutional currency of gold and silver,
it is in the power of the States, by pro
hibiting the banks from issuing and cir
culating notes of a small denomination,
and by making the constitutional curren
cy, "the basis of their own receipts and
expenditures, to give the victory in all
times to the constitutional currency,
keep a sufficiency iu the country for all
the purposes of a circulating medium,
and Drevent the evils and losses that al-
ways attend an interior currency. J. ne
disorder now felt in money matters
, ... m
rows out of the failure of many of these
anks, and the curtailment of tho circu
lation and discounts of others which iu
the last six months must have reached
forty ' or fify millions of dollars, and in
part out of the effects produced by the
large imports, ana in part oui oi ine
want of confidence between lender aud
borrower. It cannot bo attributed to
the shipment of gold and silver, which
is nothing but a consequence growing
out of theso causes.
The Independent Treasury has been
almiuistered in strict accordance with
the provisions of the law, in all respects,
as stated in my former report. There
has been found no diluculty in its oper
ation, nor in complying with any ot tne
provisions of the law. The opening of
the Treasury s Umce at nasnington,
and tho offices of the several Assistant
Treasuries and public depositaries, as
places of deposit for the disbursing
agents of the Government, has been at
tended with signal success, and resulted
in great advantages to the executive de
partments and the disbursing agents.
The table 35, which accompanies the
report, shows the growth of the deposit
system : the number of disbursing agents
who deposit, with the places and amount
of deposit at different periods. It will
be seen that in September these deposits
exceeded $3,500,000 ; whilst all disburs
ing agents who could, have not availed
themselves of the privilage, aud many
disbursing agents who could net do so,
because there were not depositaries con
venient to their location. The returns
of these deposits furnish the means of as
certaining the operations -of disbursing
agents, aud whether the funds arc kept
in readiness to meet the appropriations ;
while, upon the removal, resignation or
death of a disbursing agent, tbe amount
on deposit passes at once into the Uni
ted States Treasury and to the credit of
the depositor, without the procrastina
tion caused by having to await a settle
ment by the ageut or Administration,
and can at once be applied to the pur
poses of the appropriation through an
other agent. The moucy thus on do
posit is as safe and secure as that in the
Treasury, and is without risk to the de
positor, and it is right the Government,
and not the disbursing agent, should be
at the expense aud risk of keeping the
public money until actually disbursed.
It is to be regretted that all disbursing
agents, conveniently situated, have not
availed : themselve of the right to depos
it, because it furnishes cause of mistrust
as to a strict . compliance with tbe law,
both in respect to the deposit and use of
the public money ; and does not give the
United States the benefit of promptly
obtaining the amount not disbursed, up
on the removal, resignation or death of
the incumbent. ..- ; ... "a
THE. PUBLIC PEBT. .-
The accompanying rate,' 3., exhibits
the particulars of the public deJ)ton the
1st of July, 1853, and the accompany
ing table, 4. exhibits the particulars of
the public debt on- the 1st of July, 1854
to which is appended a table exhibiting
tho interest paid on the public debt da
ring the fiscal year 1854, and the prin
ciple interest and premium on the .part
redeemed within . that year. Table 5
exhibits the principle- iutcrest and pre
mrara on the public debt redeemed from
the first of July, 1853, to the 20th Nov.
1854. .. ' . " ; ;-'-
From these tables it appears that the
sum of $20,098,422 73 of the public
debt was redeemed between the 1st of
July, 1853, and the 1st of July, 1854,
and that the interest and premium paid
on the amount redeemed was $3,455,
645 23 ; and the priuoiplc interest and
premium ou that part of the public debt
redeemed between the 1st of July, 1853
and the 20th of November 1854, was
$2,50 1,203 51. ;
The table, 6, which accompauiea this
report, exhibits the tonnage engaged in
our foreign and. coasting trade, from the
year 1789 to t o'SOth of June, 1854.
It will be seen the increase for the last
year has been 095,09 1120 95 tons.
The table, 7, which accompanies the
report, exhibits our exports and imports
for the same tiaie j- and the table, 8,
which also accompanies this report, ex
hibits the sums received into the Treas
ury from Custonfs, Pijbilc Lands, mis
cellaneous sources, including loads and
Treasury notes, and tho tariff, and par
particular price of the public lands un
der which the sa fire was received, also
he annual expenditures during the same
tperiod. From the table of exports and
imports, i: appears the imports are SG,
321,317 in excess of the imports, no
account being taken of the precious
metals brought ilk by emigrants. Tho
profit on our exports, and tho freights
earned by our ships in foreign trade
ought more thaiT cover , the excess.
The exports include over $33,9000,000
of spicie and bullion-exported ; but
while specie and bullion are products of i
labor in our mines, they rank with any
other product, and must eater iuto our
foreign trade as artjcles of commerce,
and cau have no perjudicial effect upon
the great interests 'of tho country.
These m tables combined exhibit tho
growth cf our couimercial marine, and
of our exports and iai ports, and the re
ceipts and expenditures of our Govern
ment, and prove that reasonable expen
ditures, discharge the public debt, and
allow the reduction of the rate of taxa
tion, with almoot the certainty thai our
increasing commerce will give an in
crease of revenue equal to the reason
able demands of the future. .
UEDUCTION or THE REVEXVE.
Therefore I foci it necessary again to
call the attention ot .Congress in the
propriety of rcdueing.the revenue from
customs, so that no uture money shall
be received into the; Treasury than is
required for an economical administra
tion of the Government. The reduc
tion proposed in my: former report, as
carried out by tho bill prepared in this
Department, and" the reduction proposed
iu the bill, prepared and reported by the
Committee of Ways and Means of the
House of Representatives, would each
have effected the object of bringing the
receipts from customs to the proposed
revenue standard. . .-
CHAKGES PROPOSED IN THE TARIFF.
The present tariff has eight schedules,
or different rates on duties as follows :
The first of 100 per. cent., the second of
40 per cent., the firiof SO per cent.,
the fourth of 25 per cent., the fifth of
20 per cent., the sixth of 15 per cent.,
the seventh at 10 per cent., and the
eight of 5 per cent. The bill prepared
by the Committee of the Ilousa of Re
presentatives has five schedules, as fol
lows : The first of 100 per cent., the
second of 20 per cent., ' the third of 15
per C2nt., the fourth of .10 per cent., and
the fifth of 5 per cent. And the bill
prepared at this department, and, which
is substantially the one reported by the
minority of the Committee of the House
of Representatives, has two rates of du
ty : The first of 100 per cent., and the
second of 25 per" cept. There are " dif
ficulties in the execution of the present
tariff growing out of the required class
ification UDdcr the eight schedules ; and
these difficulties continue to increase by
the acts of the manufactures in assimi
lating one class of goods to another, and
in ascertaining one material of chief val
ue in the fabrics. - The difficulties would
be reduced under the bill of the Com
mittee,' and . would 'entirely disappear
uuder that proposed by tl-; Department.
The bill of the Committee, with the
tables herewith annexed, exhibit the re
venue from customs for the fiscal year,
ending June 30, 1853,' and what has
been tho revenue ' under the present
tariff for the average of six years, in
cluding 1853, and what would have been
the receipts for the same period under
the bill of the Committee, and under the
one recommended by this Department.
These tables only include the enumera
ted article iu the bill of the Committee,
leaving the Bum of about $2,000,000 re
venue from uncuunlerated articles; but
they are sufficient to explain the char
acter of the present tariff, the one pro
posed by the Committee, and the one
proposed by the Department.
Herewith is also presented exhibit 10,
containing the free list proposed by this
Department, to which is added the Eug
lish tariff on tha same articles ; from
which it will be seen that the English
tariff makes most of these articles free ;
and, as far as these articles are used in
the arts -and manufacturers, most of
them are free of dy under tho laws of
other manufacturing nations. Under
the English tariff, the raw material used
in the arts and manufactures have been
made free of duty, while our tariff of
1846 imposes on those-articles heavy
duties ; and thus to the - extent of the
duty ou tho raw material, the English
manufacturer has a" decided advantage
over manufacturers of the United States
iu the markets of (ther -nations, while
the effects of the tariff of 1846 is reduced
in our own market. In the revision of
the tariff, tor the purpose of reducing
the revenue, it was deemed expedient
and proper to take away the advantages
accruing to the manufacturers of other
-countries, under their free lists by mak
ing the same articles free under our
laws, except as the article of wool, and
as to that article, on to the coaser wools.
Under the Reciprocity Treaty, 'wool
from the British provinces will be ad
mitted free of duty. In ,1853, the im
portations of wool and woolen goods
amounted to over $30,000,000 and the
value of the wool in the. manufactured
article, amounted to at least $10,000,
000. This was over and above tho
amount produced in the; country, and
affords satisfactory evidence that suffi
cient wool is not produced in the country
for its consumption. The consumption
of wool in tho United States for the
yeaj 1853, ia estimated at 300,000,000
pounds, of which 60,000,000 is the pro
duction of the" country, and 21,000,000
imported as wiol. and the balance - gf
119,000,000 imported in mancfactures
of wool. .
. The proposed addition of articles cf
general consumption to the free' list,
such as nalt, &c., was deemed more ques
tionable, but was made because it seem
ed to have had the sanction of Congress
and the people, as to tea and coffee, and
it was thought would leave the operation
of the tariff laws more equitable in their
bearing upon all sections of tbe country F

charge of the construction of custom
houses, marine hospitals, etc., which ac
companies this, gives information in de
tail of all tl-at has been done towards
the completion of those under the di
rection of this Department since - the
date of my last - report, aud .of the
working of tho system of operations, and
affords all necessary information upon
that subject. . The attention of Con
gress is particularly called to that part
of the report which relates to the cus
tom house being built at JNew Urlcans.
It satisfactorily appears that the
foundation is not sufficient for the weight
and character of the superstructure, as
specified in the plan, according to which
Congress has directed it to be built ; and
that there is urgent necessity to modify
the plan and remedy the-evil as far as
practicable, and a modification of the
plan as indicated by Capt. Bowman is
recommended. -- - " '-
The attention of Congress is also
called o tho report of. Capt Bowman
upon the site, for a custon. house" at De
troit, and it is recommended for the rea
son stated by him, that authority be
'given to sell the present lot, and pur
chase a more suitable one.
Tho department has selected sites for
the custom houses at New Haven, Con-
necticut; Burlington, Vermont ;' Uswe
go, New York ; Toledo and Sandusky,
Ohio 5 ' Chicago, Illinois; Milwaukie,
Wisconsin ; and Wheeling, Virginia; in
accordance with tho report of Capt; Bow
man, No. 39, accompanying this, he hav
ing been sent tc examine the sites of
fered iu the several cities, and coufer
with the commissioners aud others upon
the subject ;and steps are being taken
to obtain the titles, with a view to early
acti n in having the buildings construct
ed. The table, No. 40, exhibits the
sites and prices agreed to be paid id the
several cities. No report was made on
the site at Buffalo, N. York ; Cincinnati,
Ohio;, and Burlington, Iowa, for the
reasons stated in the same rcjort. There
has not been time for information from
New Orleans since instructions were
issued to obtain offers for a site for the
marine hospital there. ' :

A German Roman Catholic
Priest, of Chicago, , named Weicomb,
was mulcted in $500 damages for injur
ing a boy named Miller. ' The Press
gives the history of the matter, by which
it appears that the injured boy jb a
hunchback: that during mass he whis-1
to a younger brother to be still
during the service; that after mass the
Friest directed all those who had vio
lated the rules to stay, not knowing that
this boy had transgressed. The boy
staid and was directed by the Priest to
kneel down with his arms uplifted, and
so remain one Itour, as a pennance. ' The
boy said he could not do so on account
of his deformity. The Priest then pun
ished the boy so severely that he was
helpless, and could not walk home, and

If you are sick, the prot.al.iMy is that tbe root of
your suffering is iu your stomach. From a week

the disaphrsgmt3aundice. headache, nausea, bodily
wea'.r.essdimuess ol sight, heartburn, costiveness,
dyacntry. and alegion of other tormeutingdiscases.
Indigestion produces tbin blood, and therefore de
stroys the strength and vigor of .the system. To
restore the tone of tha stomach, and enable it to
throw off and dismiss forever nil these tormeuting
and dangerous complaints; nothing is necessary
but a persevering use of lioorr-LAisD's German Bit
