300,000 Dollars of State Debt Paid in Six
In passing- tbrntigh Columbus recently wei
took occasion to call on Auditor Morgan, and
in doing so we ascertained that the Fund Com
missioiiersdiod paid off Three Hnn'lred Thouo-
and DoWiri of the State d, bt, in Ihe six months
endiugon the first of July las. This is paying
at the rate of fiftyjihonsand dollors per month
Mithin a fraction of eleven thousand, five hun
dred and thirty-eight and a half dollars pet
week, and one thousand nine ' hundred and
twen'y dollars per day. That is doing quite
well. The Fund commissioners are endeavor
ing to purchase nil the State Bonds Ihey can in
iu advance of their becoming due; but find it
exceedingly diflicut to purchase monyatlhis
time at anything likes fair price a high rale
of premium being invariably demanded by the
holder. The State bonds of Ohio are how re
garded as the most safe investments for capilai
slf, and hence nre much sought after.
Suiely it should be a cause of congratula
tion to every Ohioon, and especially to every
Democrat, that the credit of the State stands
so hi(h. But a few years ago from the 16th
of November 1841, to the 1 01b of November
1842 fifteen hundred and ticentu-teven thout-
and dollars worlh of Stocks were told for nine
hundred and ninety nine thousand, one hundred
and fifty-one dollars and thirty cents; and on
the 8th or Alacii ISt l.one hundred thousand
dollars of State storks mere sold for less titan
sixty thousand dollars. '
All this transpired under the administration
of Whig Fund Commissioners snd Whig Fi
nanciers, with the "New Constitution in Ihe
hands of its friends," the State Stocks of Ohio
are eagerly purchased at a premium, instead of
at a humiliating discount.
The "spoilers" of Ohio, as the Democrats
have been inalicioufly termed, it will be seen,
preserve unimpaired the credit, honor and dirni
ty ot the State. And while the democrat icpar
ty is so mindful of the credit, dignity and
honor of the State, what democrat is there who
would lend his aid toils overthrow by uniting
with the Fiisionists T Chil. Adv.
Tempest in a Teapot.
The Greylown bombardment continues to
supply some of the New York pspers with
subjects for a leader, and an opportunity for
malicious abuse of their Government. The
whole matter is n6t worth ihe ink that haa
been abed upon it. A mort graceless set of va
gabonds than this Jamaca negro community at
Greylown, never inhabited any town or village.
Even their "protector," Lieut. Jolly, is obliged
to threaten them with the whip to keep their
pirolical propensities in check. If it was right
to interfere with the Austrian Government fori
for the protection of Kosita,- who was not an
American citizen, we think it -till more propar
to step into the protection of genuine Ameri
can citizens, harassed bys lawless communi
ty, in the prosecution of their legitimate busi
ness, and liable to be bayoneited by negro
soldiers aud imprisoned in h dirty calaboose.
If oui Government hod not dons so, it would
then hove deser ed the censure heaped upon it
now by dissatisfitd and partizan newspaper.
