THE ISSUE FAIRLY MADE.
It will be well for the people of Ohio to
bear in mind what is the paramount issue
involved in the approaching eleotion. A
ticket framed by the old line Democracy,
is in the field. The men composing that
ticket represent certain principles, which
they doubtless consider of primary impor
tance. What are those principles ? Let
us consider. We take a plank or two from
the Platform adopted by this party at the
8th of January Convention in thi? city,
and ask special attention to them :
"Resolved, That this Convention, in be
half of the Democracy of Ohio, hereby af
firm the platform of resolutions adopted at
the Natioual Democratio Convention w bich
assembled at Baltimore in June, 1852, as
a clear and distinct declaration of our po-
Now, what is this "clear and distinct
declaration" of the political principles of
the old line Democracy? We look in
vain in tho old lino newspapers for the Bal
timore Platform this "clear and distinct
declaration" of their political principlcs.
One plank of it should not be forgotten.
It is in theso wordi :
V. Resolved, That the Democratio par
ty will resist al attempts at renewing, in
Congress or out of it, the agitation of the
Slavery question, under whatever shape or
color tne attempt may be made.
We shall next week publish the whole
of the Baltimore platform this "clear
and distinct declaration" of principles, for
the edification of our old line friends.
And how have the old lino Democracy
kept their publio and gratuitous pledge to
"resist all attempts at renewing tho agita
tion of the Slavery question? Let Histo
ry answer. The history of tho last two
years demonstrates the fact that the lead-
ers of this same party did publicly and
persistently 'renew' the 'agitation of the
Slavery question,' and despite the stortn
of public indignation, abrogated the Mis
souri Prohibition agaiust Slavery North of
the line of 36 der. 30 ruin.
The old line party, at their 8th of Jan
uary Convention, had no word of censure
for tho perpetrators of this breach of pub
1 n 1 .1 . m
no conuaence tms abrogation ot a meas
ure which has been acquiesced in by the
people of the United States for thirty-four
years, iney went lurther. Ihey resolV'
ed to uphold the perpetrators of this bad
act. Here is their resolution :
"Resolved, That wo recognize in the
Democratio Administration, both National
and State, consistent aud patriotic auxilia
ries in the above and kindred measures of
Democratio policy, and therefore worthy of
the confidence and support of every Dem
Hero then is the old line Democratic
party of Ohio fully committed to tho Bal
timore platform of Juno, 1852, with its
pledge to 'resist the agitation of the Sla
very question,' and fully endorsing the
Pierce Administration as 'worthy of con
fidence and support,' notwithstanding its
breach of public faith in procuring the
passage of the Nebraska bill.
The Republican, or People's Conven
tion takes dear and distinct issue against
these positions of the old line Democracy.
Their resolutions will be found in the pro
ceedings in another column. We quote
the following as embodying their sub
2. Resolved, That tho people of the
State of Ohio, mindful of the blessings
conferred upon them by the Ordinance of
Freedom, whose anniversary our Conven
tion this day commemorates, have estab
lished for their political guidance the fol
lowing rules :
1. We will resist the spread of Slavery,
under whatever shape or color it may be
2. To this end we will labor assiduous
ly to render inoperative and void, that
portion of the Kansas and Nebraska bill,
whick abolishes Freedom in the Territory
withdrawn from the influence of Slavery
by the Missouri Compromise of 1820, and
we will oppose, by every lawful and Con
stitutional means, the existence of Slavery
in any National Territory, or Slave States,
in this Republican Confederacy.
3. Resolved, That tho recent acts of vi
olence and civil war in Kansas, incited by
the late Vice President of tho United
States, and tacitly encouraged by the Ex
ecutive, command the emphatio condemna
tion of every citizen.
Tho 13th of July Convention have also
nominated for standard bearer in the com
ing canvass a man who nobly resisted the
passage of the Nebraska-Kansas-bill a
man who took early and decided ground
against it, and who, in tho Senate, strug
gled with zeal and fidelity, inch by inch,
against tho men who aimed to give this
bad measure the forms of law we mean
the Hon. Salmon P. Chase ; and have pla
ced on the ticket with him true and relia
ble anti-Nebraska men. The old line par
ty of Ohio have done more than p iss a res
olution of confidence in the Pierce Admin
istration. They have ostracised Mr. Chase
for his opposition to the Nebraska bill, and
elected a supporter of that moasure to take
his place in the Senate, thus giving aid
and comfort to the Administration which
betrayed the cause of Freedom. The is
sue upon whioh the people of Ohio are cal
led to decide, is plain and unmistakeable
on the one sido, the Pierce Administration
and the Extension of Slavery; on the oth
er, Restriction of Slavery, and nationaliza
tion of Freedom. It is thus defined by
Mr. Chase in his Ravenna letter, dated
15th ult :
"This is the great issue of the day-
Freedom of Slavery I a Government of
the People, or a Government of the Oligar
ohy r This is the issue which the aboli
tion Freedom in Kansas and Nebraska
precipitatod on the country. All other is
sues must stand out of the way of this.
All minor differences of opinion must be
disregarded, for the sake of agreement and
harmony upon the common Platform of
No Slavery outside of Slavi States.'
Upon this Platform all must be welcome,
of whatever birth, and of whatever creed,
who are willing to unite, tn good faith, for
the defence of Fredom and Free Institu
People of Okie, the issue is before you.
For which ticket will you give your sup
port? For the old liue, pro-slavery tick
et ? or, for the People's anti-slavery tick

do not doubt that you will support your
tried champion, and roll up for him and
the People's ticket such a majority as will
indicate to all men that a Free People will
honor and sustain the men who labor hon
estly and zealously for their interests and
the interests of Freedom, and teach ambi
tious politicians that, if they would secure
publio confidence, and obtain publio honors,
they must act in such a way as to deserve
From the Steubenville Herald.
The Steubenville & Indiana Railroad.
Mr. Editor: I now propose to exam
ine some other of the grounds upon which
a conclusion must bo formed whether or
not the stock of this road will be perma
nently a profitable stock. I have already
shown that the road is a cheap road, in its
construction, compared with some other
roads which make satisfactory dividends,
that it runs through a country, rich in all
kinds of business for the road; that it con
nects great and extensive produoing coun.
tries, with populous and prosperous consu
ming markets, and that permanent and re
liable six per cent, stocks are never, unless
in very bard times, worth less than the
face of them. I will add here, that the
stock of tho Central Michigan Railroad is
now worth one hundred and nine and a half
dollars per share of one hundred dollars
I have also shewn the cost of travel and
transportation on tho road, and asked each
0110 to compare theso things with the time
and expense of doing the same work by the
Let us now inquire into the amount of
business which may be expected to be doue
on the road.
The company now havo on the road elev
en first class and two small, engines, the
large ones capable of drawing forty freight
cars each, loaded, in a train. They have
seven first class and one second class pas
senger cars, two mail and express cars and
one hundred and twenty freight cars.
Freight cars carry eight tons each. First
class passenger cars carry fifty-six passcu
gcrs each. Passenger trains run 20 miles
an huur, running time, freight trains, ten
miles. That is to say, a passenger train
of four or five passenger cars, carrying from
two or three hundred passengers, can easi
ly run from Steubenville to Newark and
back in daylight, except in the shortest
days. Two freight trains of forty cars each,
can load and unload and make the trip one
train each way daily. These, if full freight
ed, would give six hundred and forty tons
of freight daily, which, at tho medium
charge of $5,20 per ton, would give a dai
ly income on freight of 82,328 or $1,041,
664 per annum on freight only. Two hun
dred and fifty through passengers, or their
equivalent daily, that is, one hundred and
twenty-five each way, will give a daily in
come on passengers only, of 8362,50 or
239,962,50 per annum on passengers only.
This gives a total per annum of $1,311,626,
50. This estimate is made on three hun
dred and thirteen working days.
Now no one of you will suppose this es?
timate one, to be literally realized, or that
in the present unconnected state of the road,
the aggregate can be reached in a year.
When the connections are completed, stran
ger things have happened in Railroad busi
ness than to see it exceeded. At present
a nett income of $240,000 will pay six per
cent on the costof theVoad $280,000 will
pay seven per cent. Allowing one half of
the earnings for repair, expenses, &o.,
$480,000 or $460,000 gross earnings will
nett six or seven per cent, as the case may
The highest of these sums, I have no
doubt, will be realized after September 1st,
if the work can be done that will be offer
ed. One thing is certain the present rolling
stock on the road, is not adequate to the
impending business, and must be largely
increased in all departments. No defectivo
no suspected engine or car can ever be suff
ered to be put on the road, and to avoid it
a large selection must at all times be allow
To realize $40,000 from passengers per
annum, will require 69,565 through pass
engers, or their equivalent in shorter trips,
which is two hundred and twenty-four dai
ly, or one hundred and twelve each way.
Let us see what is done on other roads.
Tho Boston and Lowell road boforo referr
ed to, in 1846, carried 484,633 passengers
It is twenty six miles long; carried the samo
year, 728,307 passengers. The Boston
and Providonce road, forty-ono miles long,
carried the same year, 487,478 passengers.
Tho Boston and Worcester road, forty-five
miles long, carried the same year, 598,305
passengers. The business on all these
roads has largely increased since. These
aro not to be understood as through passen
gers. The average distance tbey travel
will not exceed half the length of tho road.
-This shows that the patronage of the road
comes in a large measure from the country
To realize $240,000 from freight, will
require 46,154'tons of through second class
freight, or its equivalent, which is 136 tons
per day, or 68 tons each way daily. The
Boston and Lowell road in 1846, carried
281,441 tons offreight. The Boston and
Maine road carried 120,428 tons. The
Boston and Providence roadjearried 87,605
tons, and the Boston and Worcester road
carried 283,718 tons. This freight again
was not all carried the entire length of the
road, but only an average of about one-half
its length, which shows again that the coun
try along the line of a road is its most cer
tain reliance for business.
Now compare each for himself, the rocky,
barreu country, surrounding Boston, thro'
which the roads I have cited for compari
son with the fertile hills and valleys of
Jefferson, Harrison, Carroll, Tuscarawas,
Coshocton, Licking, Holmes, Knox, Perry,
Fairfield Pickaway and Franklin, then
take tho comparative cost of the roads, and
ask yourselves if it is possible that this
road should not yield a greater profit 011 its
cost than those with which I have compar
But I have not yet done. I havo said
in a former number, "interested as you
are'' you, and each of you are interested
in the rood before you take stock, and your
interest is important and exactly ot that
character, that to enable you to secure and
protect it, and develops the advantages it
places in your reach to the utmost: it is
essential that you take stock in order that
you may take aud exercise a share in the
management ot the road, This interest 1

Imprisonment op an American at
Callao. There has been quite a squab
ble going on in Callao, between our Min
ister, Mr. Clay, and tho Peruvian author
ities, relative to the captain of the Amer
ican ship, John (Jummins. It appears
that the crew of this vessel mutinied in
port, proceeded to the Captin's cabin, and
took possession of all the weapons they
could find; then, headed by the boatswain,
they took one of the boats and attempted
to desert. The captain cautioned them
against the procedure, and, on their per
sisting, he brought up a doublcd-barreled
shot gun, which he had concealed in his
state room, and fired in the boat, killing
The authority immediately arrested
the captain, and Mr. Clay demanded his
release, which was refused. He then or
dercd up the flag ship Independence, the
appearance of which vccscl induced the
authorities to succumb, and releuse the
prisoner. Soon after, tho Independence
sailed for Panama, via Paita, but no soon
or had she left Calloa than the authorities
again seized upon their victim, and threw
him into prison. Mr. Clay sent again af
ter tho Independence, and at last accounts
she was on her way back to Callao; Com
modore Mcrwin being determined to let
the good folks of Peru smell Yankee pow
der if they should give him any trouble.

by over-sight, we neglected to put up
