EWING ON THE CONSTITUTION.
Hon. Thomas Ewing, the "Demo
cratic" member of the late Constitu
tional CouTention, from Fairfield
county, recently made a speech in
favor of the adoption of the New
Constitution. lie divided it into 4
heads, as follows:
1. It will give a better and more
2. The new Constitution will give
ns a purer government.
3. The new Constitution will give
us a cheaper goyernmen t.
4. The new Constitution puts
wholesome restraints on private corporations.
CURRENCY AND CONFIDENCE.
The act, providing for a redistri
bution of bank cnrrency, says the
Cincinnati Gazette requires fifty
millions to be distributed among the
'Western, Southern, and Southwes
tern States, on demand from those
State west of Ohio, inclnding her,
are deficient in this dispensation,
and may now have their share of
this fifty-seven millions. What we
have heard of the desire for more
"banking capital" that is to say,
more of the priviledge of issuing
bank notes as money constrains us
to think this distribution will give
on impetus to things. The amount
to be now distributed is more than
one quarter of all the paper money
before the war. Besides this, there
has already' been surrendered, under
the act authorizing banks to with
draw their deposit bonds on putting
up legal tenders to redeem the notes
secured thereby two millions of cir
culation from the Eastern banks,
which, with the further amount that
will be surrendered, for distribution
to applicants. If the statements of
necd.of circulation in the West, up
on which this act was passed, were
true,, this amount for distribution
must give great relief. The country
has now seven Lundred and eighty
six millions of paper money in the
form of greenbacks, fractional?, and
bank notes. It has probably 'one
hundred and twenty five millions of
specie. The currency is ready "to
move the crops," as soon as the
crops begin to be moved, it is cer
tain there will be a revival of busi
ness. Confidence ought to be reviv
ed by seven hundred and eighty-six
millions of paper money and the as
surance that the volume is not to be
disturbed this year.
HENRY COUNTY FRAUDS.
The committies investigating the
public expenses' of Henry count)-,
says the Cleveland Leader, have
scarcely more than commenced their
work, and they are surrounded by
indications of defalcations that will
probably foot up to about $100000.
It will be impossible to arrive at an
exact.knowledge ofthe amount sto
len during the last few years, be
cause a number of the books are
missing and the committee is ham
pered in its investigations by the
presence of Democratic office-holders.
All the leaders of the Demo
cratic party in Henry county are in
the ring, and there are no Democrats
of ability left to champion the cause
of the plundered tax-payers. The
Republican s are very feeble in the
county, and their voices will be of
little avail. The amount of money
stolen will never be fully known, and
stealing will be continued for years
unless some sudden change opens
the eyes of the deluded rank and
file of the Democracy to the great
wrongs practiced upn them. The
proofs of these thefts are so numer
ous that it is difficult to understand
how the blindest ofthe blind can
fail to see them. In one case a com
pany in Toledo offered to contract
for the stone work of a bridge for
$14,000 and the disinterested offi
cials of Henry county gave the work
to a Cm in Indiana. Thejobisnot
finished but the county has alrea
dy paid on it over $30,000. The con
tractors at once made a member of
the court house elique a present of
a beautiful carriage and another
member of the ring soon began to
build a $7,000 residence. He re
ceived a salary of only$G00 per year,
but he was very economical, and
tuis accounts for his saving about

EFFECT OF HARD STUDY.
nie enecis oi tne nam .study re
quired in the leading schools for
girls have just been sadly manifest
ed at Brooklyn. Mr. Henry A. Ov
ing ton, a well known merchant of
that city, has entered suit for the
absolute divorce of his daughter,
Mrs. George Spier, on the ground of
hopeless imbecility. Miss Ovington
graduated with high honors from
the Packer Institute. Her over dil-
ligcncc in study brought on epilep
tic fits, which became frequent and
gradually undermmded her mental
powers. It was hoped that marriage
might prove a cure, and she was ac
cordingly married to her present
husband. Instead of growing bet

in a hopeless condition. She was
no doubt the pride of her instructors,
but idiocy is a dear prize to pay for

CROPS IN ENGLAND.
The serious fact is reported from
England and various parts of the
continent that the season has thus
far been exceptionally cold and dry,
so that besides suffering all the dis
advantages or tiroutu, tue crops
have been prevented by cold weath
er from ripening. It is well known
that the principal difficulty encoun
tered by the British farmer and hor
ticulturist is that of ripening his
crops and fruit. Grapes and peach
es, for instance, have to be surroun
ded "with high walls which shut on
Khc damp winds and concentrate the
heat of the sun, otherwise the fruit
dues not ripen and is lost. The

head about the size of a dollar. He
has daik skin, black eyes, and
musical voice, wnen be makes a

in the front isle, where half of Con

have a good time. His speech on
the expense of a moth to the gov
ernment, last winter, was the witti

as he is bright, and though a Dem
ocrat ofthe Democrats, he is the on

never loses his temper or makes
himself disagreeable, no matter how
exasperating inav be his fantastic
speech. He is, moreover, a man of
more than ordinary culture. Liber

PAMURU, INDIA, April 30th, '74
Dear Uncle: Here we are where
we were one year ago. it does not
seem so distant from Ohio as it did
then. The hottest weather is com
ing over the country,and we are now
traveling to the sea coast in order
to escape the severe heat. The Eng
lish have built something like civil
ized houses in the different villages
at distances of from fifteen to twen
ty miles apart. These are for the
benefit of officers of the army, for
European officials and for travelers-
They are a great blessing, and we
always aim to reach one of them in
traveling. You will understand
this when I tell you it is too hot to
travel by day, and that a person can
scarcely endure to stop in the little,
confined, unclean native hnts.
"We spentyesterday in one of these
bunnaloics sixteen miles back. It
was very sultry, and I hung my
thermometer in the coolest room of
the decaying building. At five in
the afternoon it sood at 9G Fah'r.
To-day it is not so warm, as it is yet
morning, and we are nearer the sea,
But I want to tell you how the
country looked this morning as we
moved on our way at dawn. I had
been dull and stupid from lack of
sleep and was listlessly riding along,
I was caring more to get to the end
of our journey.than any thing else.
All this while the darknes was
growing less, objects were becoming
more distinct and, presently, the
clouds became a gentle chrome col
or and the blue could be seen. My
thonghts ran faster, feelings came up
fresh, and I compared and contrast
ed India with .Ohio. Ourhorscsare
the same. The government road on
which we travel looks like the high
ways in the counties of Seneca or
Putnam, in August, but lie across
the level country with a much deep
er dust. Trees.line.tlie road, here
and there, and sweet voiced birds
are singing notes as they sing yon
dcr.lt is past harvest and the chol-
um stubble resembles a corn field in
March when the stumps of stalks
stand in rows over the fields; and
the rice and rawgy fields make one
think of wheat stubble; While the
castor-oil bean fields resemble some
land overgrown with thistles. The
straw stacks are just like the long
hay or wheat ''ricks" of Holmes,
and these India ryots "draw in" and
"top out" their stacks in the same
way as American farmers. At a
distance, the- Arabica Acacia, the
tree from which Gum Arabic is ob
tained, looks like a cherry tree and
awakens an old taste for the juicy
fruit we havo not seen for two years.
The Margosatree might be taken
for a low wide branching, thickly
leafed chestnut, at blossom time;
and the Palmyra and coaco-nut trees,
standing a mile or more away, seem
to be tall hickories with all the
branches except the very top ones,
But this is all there is' to remind
me of my native land. All else is
m03t unlike. TJown by the road
side is no fence, no hedge. There
are no rails, and little paths separ
ate the fields, making the traveler
feel that he is on some road through
a great, uninhabited country. It
docs not look right to an American,
and the feeling is increased by the
total absence of any house, barn, or
shed. And then, in front of the
horses,goes an unusual vehicle. The
bare limbs of six men move at a trot

these are the wagons, carriages, and
express carts of this country.
Through the wild date trees or
the holly hocklike Portia trees along
the roadside, can be seen a heap of
rice or castor-oil beans. Near these
arc white objects just distinguisha
ble in the increasing light. They
are men or women covered with light
cloth and sleeping on the ground to
guard any one from thieving the
grain. It may bo several miles to
the nearest house or village, and so
these people are quite alone.
Here and there are some cone
or mounds of earth tapering to a
point and rising two, four and six
feet from the level ground. These
arc the homes of the white ants, a
little animal that works in the dnrk,
and tunnels out holes in the ground
or in solid wood. Sometimes there
are rows of these stacks of earth.
And all these things and ways arc
the new things of a, to me, newland.

LUDICROUS EFFECTS OF THE APPEARANCE
OF A COMET IN 1712.
As everybody is on the qui vive
in regard to the Comet, and as all
sorts of ideas are "around" in regard
to it we give the following amusc-
ing sketch gleaned from an old pa
"In the year 1812 Mr. VThitson
having calculated the return of a
comet which was to make its ap
pearance on Wednesday, the 14th of
October, at five minutes alter nve
in the morning, gave notice to the
public accordingly, with a terrify
ing addition that a total dissolution
of the world by lire was to take
place on the Friday following. The
reputation Mr. Whitson had long
maintained in England, both as
divine and a philosopher, left little
or no doubt with the populace of
the truth of his prediction.
"Several ludicrous events took
place. A number of persons in and
about London seized all the barges
and boats they could'lay their hands
on m the Thames, very rationally
concluding that when the conflagra
tion took place there would be the
most safety on the water. A gentle
man who had neglected family pray
er for better than five years inform
ed his wife that it was his determin
ation to resume that laudable prac
tice the same evening; bat his wife,
having engaged a ball at her house,
persuaded her husband to put it off
till she saw whether the comet ap
peared or not. The South Sea stock
immediately fell to five percent, and
the India to eleven; and tue captain
of a Hutch ship might not be endan
gered. "The next morning, however, the
comet appeared according to the
predictions, and before noon the be-
lief was universal that the Day of
Judgment was at, hand. About this
time three hundred and twenty-three
clergymen were ferried over to Lam
beth, it was said, to petition that :
short prayer might be penned and
ordered, there being none in the
Church service on that occasion.
Three maids of honor burnt their
collection, of novels and plays, aud
sent to the bookseller's to buy each
of them a Bible and Bishop Taylor's
'Holy .Living and Dying.' The run
upon the bank was so prodigious
that all hands were employed from
morning till night discounting notes
and handing out specie. On Thurs
day considerably more than 7,000
kept mistresses were legally mar
ried in the face of several congrega
tions. And, to crown .the whole
farce, Sir Gilbert Heathcotc, head
Director ofthe banks, issued orders
to all the fire officers in London re
quiring them 'to keep a good look
out and have a particular eve ou
the Bank of England.'"
OUR FREE GOVERNMENT.
Gov. Allen Recounts Some of its Advantages.
uov. William Alien, ol umo, ap
peared on Change in Cincinnati the
other day, and being called upon for
a speech, returned his thanks and
said: "It was no part of my .inten
tion to make anything .like a formal
speech, but I will tell you a little
thing that occured to me in ap
proaching this city last evening. I
asked myself how it happened that
tnere, upon that spot where a rude
fort, called Fort Washington, stood
less than a century ago how has it
happened that there stands uowone
of the richest, most intelligent, and
enterprising cities of the world?
And all this within les3 than a sin
gle century. It was a problem diffi
cult to solve. When the mind runs
back and looks over ancient Europe,
it sees there towns sitcated in every
respect with as many physical ad
vantages as the city of Cincinnati
still remaining comparatively poor,
notwithstanding they have had cen
turies in which to build themselves
up. It naturally occured to mo to
contrast the city of Marseilles, in
France, with the city of Cincinnati,
and to inquire how it happened.
What is the cause that here, where
there was nothing but a wilderness
filled with Indians less than a cen
tury ago, we now have a city of 300,
000 people, while Marseilles, found
ed twenty-five centuries ago, on the
Mediterranean, with all the advan
tages of commerce, through the
Straits of Gibraltar to ancient Alex
andria, a city settled by the Greeks
five centuries before the Christian
era, the very elite and the most in
telligent branch of the human fami
ly. What is the population of that
city to-day? With all its physical
advantages, it is about two thirds
the size and wealth of the city of
Cincinnati, settled less than a cen
tury ago. Now, my friends, I know
you are met here for other purposes
than to listen to speeches, but as 1
was called upon and asked to say
something, 1 wiIlc!osc my remarks
by observing that if a philosopher
were called upon to analyze tbe
cause producing these two tremen
dous results a city growing up iu
the woods in less than a century,
with a city settled on the Mediter
ranean 2,500 years ago, and that ci
ty, with its 170,000 inhabitants.
standing there still, while this city.
z,4UU years younger, presents a pop
ulation of 300,000. What is the cause
of this? It cannot be position, be
cause no city in the world is better
situated than this one of Marseilles.
It has a splendid and healthy cli
mate around it. It is part of one of
the oldest kingdoms in the world.
Why is it' then, that this a9kmish
ing phenomeou is presented, that
the city of Marseilles, nearly 2.500
years old, is to-day only two-thirds
the size oi Cincinnati, less than a
century old? Some cause exists for
it It cannot be climate, for Mar
seilles has as good a climate as we
have. It cannot be the surroundiug
country, for Marseilles has as fine a
surrounding country as we have. It
cannot bo commcicial position, be
cause she is better situated than we
are. And yet hero stands the bare
faced fact Within less than a cen
tury Cincinnati has come into exis
tence and grown to be one-third lar
ger. Some cause exists for that tre
mendous phenomenon, aud what
must it be? It is not climate, it is
not soil, nor want of intelligence in
the population, because, as I said
before, the city of Marseilles was
originally colonized by the most in
tellectual branch ofthe human race.
What is, then, the cause of this ex
traordinary fact? I will toll -ou the
cause the only one possible that
cause is free government. No other
cause can be given, and I name this
in order that every man who appre
ciates these words free govern
ment may be stimulated to the
maintenance of that free government.

Leetonia, Ohio, December 22. 1S70.
Dr. J. W. Sykes Dear sir: Ifeelit
my duty to make a just acknowledge
ment to you of the benefit I received of
your treatment from April to Sentem-
ber, 1869. When I resorted to you I had
but little hope or recovery, as X bad
hemorrhage of the Lungs almost daily
during twenty-two months previous, to-
getner coum not lie on mylelt slue dur
ing a period of fifteen years. The couch
pain, and constant oppression of the
breast made life a burdeu. After taking
your treatment ior tnree montns i leit a
decided Improvement; the hemorrhage
of the lungs had ceased altogether; the
oppiessiou oi tne urcast,cough,&cwere
much better, with a decided improve
ment or m v general Health : so that
commenced the second.coursc of three
mouths' treatment with more hope. Af
ter continuing the treatment (altogeth
er live months,) I felt myself entirely
n-eii, couiu uc 011 eitner sine and breatue
freely, yet I could hardly believe the
euro a permanent one. But now, lifti-en
moiillis have elapsed, and no recurrence
or hemorrhages, or cough, and 1 have
regained my roriucr weight so that
now fell thaiikttil to God and to you for
your invaluable treatment in my case,

use. Nothing can restore the hair

the glands atrophied and decayed;
but such as remain can be saved "by
this application, and stimulated into

the hair with a pasty sediment, it

not harm it. If wanted merely for
