Sewage and Sewerage.
Socage it word not found in Webster, bat
it ii used to cxpreei our meaning for the refuse
garbage of oltiei, commonly pawed off through
the artificial ehanneli, or bjr sewerage, into
running riven, thus at onoe .ridding the place
whom people dwell of ft great nuisance. Im
menie enmi of money have boon upended in
the oonstruotion of the merearohiteoture of the
drainage apparatui. Government offloials
have taxed their wisdom and the people's
pooketi, and have unfortunately, perhaps,
auooeeded, after years of labor and outlay of
thousands of dollars, in removing the nuUanoe
fram eight.' We eay unfortunately, perhaps,
for It may be true that there ha) been a
squandering of money about the undertaking
f ier all It has become pertinent to ask, Is it
wise to wash away, destroy entirely the refuse
of a city? cannot the artiole washed away be
mads to pay a large portion of the expense of
ite removal? We obtained some valuable
hints, casually, on this subject, recently, in a
tract written in Wales by Kev. Samuel Roberts,
who gave hie views adverse to the oommonly
practiced plans of sewerage, and advocated
ft project looking to the . transportation of
manures to the country by meant of the rail
ways 5 sinoe wbioh reading of his tract we
have had an opportunity of seeing htm in this
city, and oonveralng with him on the subjeot.
Space Trill not la afforded la a short' artiole to
give perspicuously his views on the subject.
This from time to time will be given with our
own views. A system of removal could be
adoptod, by barrels or other vessels approprl
-ate to contain all refuse or offal matter, whioh,
properly closed, could be transported by rail
way and distributed to the lands In the oountry,
Now, if all the nuisances of a city oan be
daily boxed and barreled up and made
manure, oleanliness and hoalth would be
secured, and millions of money saved Instead
of lost, by redoubling the value and productive-
uoji of onr lands.
A Midland Railroad.
There Is an Incomplete link in tho railroad
line through mid-Kentucky, whioh, if eon
etruoted, would make our way clear from Cin
cinoati to Charleston. We are near at band to
doing any work, when we know it is needed,
that it must be done; that it would pay well to
do it. We suppose no such a preposterous
proposition, as that peoplo can be dragooned
into enterprises. With your consent, g
people, we want some oue to subscribe the
money to pay the expense of cutting down the
tress, excavating the routs, building the track
and equipping and running the road, whioh
should be at onoe undertaken, between Nioho-
lasville, Ky., and Knoxvlllo, Tenn. Cinoin
cati, as a trading and a manufacturing city
neods suoh an outlet; as a railroad center, this
spoke is yet to bo put Into her hub. The
quostion of furnishing the money is an im
porcant one; but the funds must be raised, the
chain must he complete The work already
done is too much done if we are to stop now.
ws must make more valuable the part already
done, by building more. We have had the
pleasure of an interview with Samuel Roberts
one of a small colony of Welch emigrants who
have made a settlement near Huntsville, Tenn
He is a mild man, devoted to his tasks as
Christian minister, but he sees the need of a
trunk-line road from the Ohio to the Atlantic,
and has written spirited articles on the subjeot
ii the Tenneieee papers, urging upon business
men and men of capital to embark at onoe in
the enterprise. It is one in which Kentucky;
Tennessee and Ohio should he jointly engaged,
Without having it in our power to reproduce his
spirited articles, we cannot but thus allude to
their objoot, and urge an "union" movement
Let Cincinnati avail herself of the opportunity
of a through route over Kentucky and Tennes
see to the seaports of the Atlantic.
Gratitude to a School Teacher.
We are hoartily glad to know that the heart
of Jons Hilton, a veteran school toacher, is
made glad by douations from numerous pu
nils who are now in affluence. He came to
this city and:taaght school in 1810. He here
wrotearticle.fvorablotoa public school sjB'
tern, long before JJie State of Ohio made any
such prifHSKins. He is now aged and lame,
and hav'ug means to purchase a lot on Wal
nut Hills, S. S. L'Hommrdieu, A. N. Riddle,
Miles Gbkex wood, and such a class of pupils,
are contributing toward putting up a com'
fortable house on it, to be a shelter and
home to the pioneer echoolmaeter. Others
can do the old man a service by slight con'
tributions. If mon who grow rich can't re-
member their teachers, there is no resource
in wealth desirable. Honey should not
weigh down, memory, or obliterate gratitude
Senator Douglas in Town.
A very large number of people having a on
riosity to see the tnaa-rfor his dootrines are
topioal as household words -crowded to the
qnarter where this gentleman spoke in this
city, last night. His theme was popular sov-
erelgnty and non-intervention. Mr. Douglas,
being quite hoarse, was prevented from, being
as interesting as usual, but in spite of this
' serious affection, he made some effective points.
The orator's boldness and repose results from
the eonvietion that he has the people on his
side and makes him quite a raoy speaker.
The American Express Company.
This company, of world-wide reputation,
soon expiree by limitation. They have been
existence ten years'; and no provision having
been rmdofor an extension of the partnership,
a meeting of the stockholders has been called
for the 13th of November, to advise as to the
continuance of the eompany nnder the same
name and goo.d Till. Under that name the
eompany will, we hopo, long have the good wilj
of the people and the preia.
Fayette County (O.) Fair.
The Fair of Fayette County, at Washington,
closed yesterday with a brilliant display.
was th'i horse day; the weather was fair, the
ladies fair-er, and the contest for the prises
of the ring decidedly spirited. Ex-Governor
Corwln delivered an address pertinent to the

every one was rapturously In lore with him

National Horse Fair at Dayton.
[Special Correspondence of the Penny Press.]
DAYTON, September 9, 1859.
Dear Prbss: Your correspondent will
agree with you in all the praise you can
i ... ti i ii i a -. i r I. .. i
oeaiowupon uuywa uuu ner luaiumiiuiB, uui,
when you come to speak of the "National
liorse tinow" now unacr way nere, we oeg
leave to havo a word or two to say. It is
certainly a one-horso Bhow, as it is said to be
under the control ot one man, ana tnat man,
too, an individual by the name of Smith.
With , tno exception ot one or two ot tne
surrounding States, there are no representa
tives of horsemen or horse-flesh at thiB fair.
Yesterday, by dint of advertising and im
mense posters, quite a respectable crowd was
induced to go to the "National Fair," the pe
culiar attraction being a contest between ludy
rulers, the result of whicfl you nave already
published, but concerning which I have
beard considerable dissatisfaction expressed,
the majority holding to the opinion that the
awards were not properly distributed.
Ibis should be tne last ol the Fair, nut tne
committee (?) have resolved to string It out
one day longer closing to-morrow with tne
balloon ascension by Mons, J. C. Bellman,
who arrived in the city this morning, and was
accounted about as great a lion as the Little
Giant Douglas himself. As excursion tickets
have been promised on the different railroads,
I should not bo surprised if tho last day of tbo
Fair was to prove the best which, howevor,
would not be doing any great things.
The lay members attached to the Metho
dist Conference met this morning in Raper
Chanel, occupying tho morning in effecting
an organization. The regular Conference is
Btill iu session, but has as yet transacted no
very important business. Tee subjeot ot
slavery in its different phases bids fair to
excite a lively discussion before the Confer
ence closes. Ministers are still arriving
daily, so that, what with clergymen, horse
men, showmen and sporting men, Dayton is
completely overrun, " every hotol being
Thore si nuite a number of Cincmnatians
heTe, members of the different professions
noted above. The Horse Fair will undoubt-
lv close to-morrow, but it is expected that
the Conference will not bo through its busi
ness until tne middle ol next wees;, wnen
Davton will again resume its wonted staid
and go on in the even tenor
A Southurn Auroral Display, The Mo
bile Advertiser has the following:
On Sunday night we witnessed from Point
Clear some electrical feats a little extraordi
nary for this latitude. A little after dark the
attention of every one was directed to a dull
red light, which resembled that reflected from
a burning building upon a cloud of no great
density. Gradually this light increased In
intensity, and the cloud dropped down nearly
to the horizon and assumed a hue of the black
est shade. Now, apparently from behind this
cloud, commenced one of the moBt imposing
spectacles it hu ever been our good fortune to
witness. Streams of light shot up all along the
cloud from tho north-east to the north-west
points, being the moat brilliant on a line due
north. These streams were exactly analogous
to the Aurora of the North. At one moment
they appeared exceedingly bright and well
defined. The next instant would change the
entire soene. A constant reformation of per
petually fading corrugations was kept up for
half an hour, when a change took plaoe in tho
performances. As the streams gradually faded
away, the ctouJ, which had before remained
perfeotly dark, began to he illuminated with
the ordinary forms of electrioal flashes, whioh
oootiiued until we withdrew from the "au
dience." We wish wecould have rung a huge
bell at the time, that all might have seen
phenomenon whioh may not occur again
this latitude for a century.
A Nobl but Unfobxphatb Act. A brake
man of the Galena Railroad, named Timothy
Ragae, risked his own life and suffered the loss
of one of his hands day before yesterday,
an attorn-1 to roscue from death two children,
who foolishly tried to crawl under a ear just

the children out of the way of danger, but

which orushed it to atoms. Doctor Isham

Reuarkaoli Nbw Yobe Merchant. Mr.
George Griswold, the oldest merchant in New
York, died latolyat Staten Island. He was
eighty-three years of age, and has been In busi
ness in New York half a century. In all that
time the house to which he belonged never suf
fered in oredit. -
Mr. Griswold was a native of Lyme, Conn.,
and, says the Tribune, the success of the house
was such that the initials of the firm, N.
and G. G., were interpreted among the mer
chants ot ftoutb-street "No Loss and Great
Gain." Lately the firm was engaged with
great profit in the East India, and China trade.

Springfield Jlepublinan, has resigned the pas

That Millionaire Wedding.
A Saratoga correspondent of the Boston
Journal writes V
"Miss Bartlatt, who is to marry the Cuban
of "untold wealth' is at the Congress, one ii
of eourse the observed of all observers. And
the little, small sharp-faoed, dark-visaged old
man' of sixty; whole to bear away this choice
flower, is envied greatly. Tbo name of the
fashionable bridegroom Is M. Esto deSt. Cotso
De Oviedo. This lady Is young, elegant and
tall; when he stands upon the second stair be
is on a level with his intended. The whole
party, inoludlng the father of the lady, Mr.
Barlett, have loft for Lake George. This ar
rangement has been a most happy one for the
father. He has now an elegant house in
Fourteenth-street, and has been told by his
intended son-in-law that for the future be
need have no oare. The Rev. D. Taylor,
aided by the accomplished Brown, will do one
part of the work in Grace Church, and Bishop
Hughes, in the Cathedral, will consummate
the work. It, was said by the late Horace
Mann that on one occasion it took fifteen men
to draw an inference. It takes both the full
foroe of Protestant and Catholio oanonloals to
"join this man and woman together.
The New York correspondent of the Charles
ton Mercwy, who seems to devote muoh atten
tion to the approaching nuptials of Senor
Oviedo and Miss Bartlett, say s :
"At Genin's, where tho wedding troueieau
of Miss Bartlett hu been manufactured, I was
shown a large chest of lingerie, which cost
two thousand dollars a superb collection of
linen cumbrie, gossamer linen, Valenciennes
lace and transparent puffings. The peignoir
was of fine white easbmere. exeuisitely em
broidered with white silk, costing one hundred
and twenty dollars; and the opera oloak was
the most exquisit thing I ever saw, composed
of white easbmere, and closely embroidered in
the most beautiful designs, the ground-work
looking like tiny seed pearls; this Is worth
eighty dollars, and took five girls six weeks to
embroider it. Seventy-five dresses are now
ready for the fair bride elect; nothing oan
exoeedthe princely liberality of the wealthy
Cuban in the superb surroundings of this fair
Danae, at whose shrine he pours a constant
shower of all that gold oan furnish.. A great
muny will be disappointed that the wedding is
to take plaoe at home instead of at the ohuroh,
as was first intended.
Horace Greeley thus discourses in one of his
late letters in relation to this peonliar insti
tution in .Utah i
I do not believe the plural-wife system oan
lone: endure: yet almost every man with whom
I conversed on the subject seems intensely, fa
natically devoted to it, deeming this the
choicest of his earthly blessings. With the
women, I am confident it is otherwise; and I
watohed their faces as JSlder Taylor, at asooial
gathering on Saturday night, wob expatiating
humorously on this feature of the Mormon sys
tem, to the great delight of the men ; but not
one responsive smile did I see on the faoe of a
woman, un tne contrary, i mougat mey
seomed srenerallv to wish the subjeot bad been
nassed over in silence. Fanaticism and a belief
that weareuoa 8 especial, exclusive mvuriioo,
will earrv most of us a great way; but the natural
instinot in every woman's breast must teach
her that to be some one's third or fourth wife
is to be no wife at all. I asked my next neigh
bor the name of a fair young girl who sat some
distance from us witn a oaoe on nor Knee.
'That is one of Judge Smith's ladies," was bis
quiet, matter-of-oourse answer. Of ooureo, no
woman spoiie puDUOiy J. Duueve none voi
sneak in a Mormon assemblage and I shall
not ask anv one her private opinion of Polye,

Yet polygamy is ono main puiaroi tne
Mormon Church. He who has two or more
wives rarely apostatizes, as he could hardly
remain here in saiety ana comiori as an apos
tate, and dare not take his wives elsewhere,
I have heard of but a single instance in which
a man with three wives renounced Mormon'
ism and left for California, whore he expe
rienced no difficulty; "for," said my in
formant (a woniiin), "he introduced his two
younger wives (gins ol nineteen and four
teen! as his daughters, and married them
both off in the course of six weeks."
I am assured by Gentilos that there is a
lare-e business done here in vnmarrying as
well as marryinc! some of thera assure me
that the church exacts a fee of $10 on the
marriaee of each wifo after tho first, hut
charges a still heavier fee for divoroing. I
do not know that this is true, nnd I suspect
my informants were no wiser m tho premises
than I am. But it certainly looks to me as
though a rich dignitary in the church has a
freer and fuller range for the selection of his
sixth or eighth wife than a poor young man
of ordinary standing has for choosing his
first. And I infer that the more sharp-
sighted young men will not always be con
tent witn Wis.

by some as the commencement of
