The Governors of Ohio—Inauguration
Next Monday.
Whatever diffetenoe of opinion may be en
tortaioed by politician toward ths Incum
bents of offlee, it will not bo considered im
proper to alludo to the exemplary character,
ability and patriotism of Wot. Dennison, who
is to be Inaugurated Governor of the great
State of Ohio on Monday next. May the
State of whloh he U to be the offiolal head
oontlnus to prosper and sustain its high char
acter at sovereign State of the Union.
This is the honorable list of his predecessors:
Gen. Arthur St, Clair, who had been President
of the Continental Congress and a Revolution
ary offioor, after fighting the Indians In Its
defense, was appointed by Washington first
Governor of the North-western Territory, and
continued to hold the government thereof from
1788 until the formation of a State Govern
ment In 1803.
The first Governor of Ohio was Dr. Edward
Tiffin, from 180S to 1808; a portion of the time
of the latter year, Thos. Kirker, the President
of the Senate, acted as ftovernor; Samuel
Huntington from 1808-10; Return J. Meigs
1810-14; Otbneill Looker acting during
1814; Thomas Worthington 1814-18; Ethan
Allen Brown 1818-22; in which latter year,
for some months, Alien Trimble aoted as Gov
ernor; Jeremiah Morrow 1822-28; Alien Trim
ble 1826-30; Dunoan MaArthur 1830-12; Robt.
Lucas 1832-36; Joseph Vaoee 1836-38; Wil
son Shannon 1838-40; Thos. Corwin 1840-42;
Thoi. W. Bartley acting 1844 William Bebb
1816-48; Seabury Ford 1848-60; Reuben
Wood 1850-64; William Medill 1854-56; Sal
mon P. Chase 1856-60.
Ohio ratified her first Constitution Novem
ber 29, 1802, when she had a population of
41,915; now oor population is nearly two and a
half millions.
Ws trust that in bis inaugural, Governor D.
will impress upon the General Assembly of
Ohio a due seme of the present relation of the
West to tbis Union, and Intimate to section
alists that the commerce, agriculture, and
manufactures of the West must be respected
and duly considered.
The Artie Search The Open Polar Sen.
The increased interest given to the subject
of physical geography, and especially to the
Artio regions, by the lectures of Bayard Tay
lor, justifies our reference to the contemplated
visit of Americans in search of the open
Polar Sea. Cincinnati sympathizes with Dr.
Hayes, who dwells with eloquent earnestness
on the topic of the open Polar Sea. Men of
science, men of progress in our oity, exult with
him in joyous anticipation of exploring these
"North waters." We have a thought above
pork, picayunes and (he negro, and confess
to a sympathy with the proposed American
enterprise, to be conducted by the Surgeon of
Dr. Kano's expedition. The Doctor proolaima
his bolief of the existence of such a sea in
mid winter as in summer. Morton, at lati
tude 86 deg. 20 ruin., had reached it, and had
traveled, In June, along the margin of this
water seventy miles, and from an elevation or
three hundred feet had looked out upon a
boundless, iceless sea. He reported that tbo
temperature of the water by the thermometer
to be 36 degrees. He believed it was there
through sun-light and darkness. Its broad
bosom heaves and swells under the eternal
day; its ioy margins lashes into frosty foam
the roaring billows under the gray dome of
eternal night. The mighty whale has there
his central home, and sporting unmolested
within his ice-locked fortress, mingles his
voice with the roar of dashing waters, start
ing tho midnight solitude of the silent stars.
The great bear roams wild over its frozen
border, and sees its heavenly brother mirrored
in the "vasty deep." When summer comes
its shores swarm with bird life, and myriads of
soa-swallowi ane eider and killi-wake ohatter
in the cliffs, and flit over the foaming oresta
of the swelling Waves. Flowers bud and
blossom in the valleys; mosses grow green
upon the slopes, and pence and plenty oome to
human creatures, who, guided by the polar
star, have wandered to the utmost limit of the
land.
We hope a fully qualified representative of
the West will be selected as one of the expedi
tion. Cincinnati would be glad to bear her
proper contribution to sustain this movement,
and no doubt two lectures here by Dr. Hayes
would be well supported.
The West—How Do We Head!
Power is coming to the West. Like a No
vember freshet its wave is on our shore.
"Sixty" is upon usthe first decennial epoch
after tho half century of Anno Domini 1800.
Figures of our progress are to be added up
this yoar the eolnmns of population and
oommere of our nation, on the slate of 1850,
are to be wiped off, and another census is to
be the trestle-board on whloh our designs for
brief future are to be traced. The sound
ings made, the chart corrected, the vessel
again at sea, we may well ask, How do we
head 1 Use and action is our mission espe
cially so in the West. How shall the West
answer, and spurn the noisy clamors for dis
union. We have no time to spend in family
quarreling. Our rivers, and lakes, and rail
roads, are substantial avenues through wbioh
flow our commerce; oar farms and workshops
keep them stocked with products. We want
to fuss leas about national politics, and busy
ourselves more about home interests. We do
not wish to have our attention all the time
diverted to Washington City, for instruction
what shall be done at home. Now that our
Bute is to Inaugurate a new Governor, Jet
Ohio take a lira position for tho West in move
ments for the material prosperity of the Mis
sissippi Valley, and for the perpetuity of the
whole Union. In taking our new departure,
may our new pilot keep a firm, watchful
hold on the beta, observing well how we
bead. The Union forever.

Merchants' and Manufacturers' Exchange
—Annual Report of the Board
of Directors.
The annual meeting of the Merchants' and
Manufacturers1 Exchange was held a day or
two ago,ana omoers eiectea lor tne ensuing year,
whioh we have already published. The an
nual report of the Directors was read at the
same time, oi wnicn we give below a brief ab
stract. The following la the financial condition of
tne JSxonange:
Beceipta during the year JI.1S7 19
Disbursements daring the year 1,087 7ft
Balance in Treasury.,... it 40
The first year of an organisation is the one
most likely to incur dibt. but with the Ex
change, as will be seen from the above finan
cial report, it has not only been able to defray
an tne expenses ineurreu, out nas a small Dal-
anivm tin hand This la i.maaK.I Mma.b.kl.
u wa. Aaa.a . u .viuvaua.i.uiMaailigj
for the outlay has been larger than the Board
has reason to believe it will be again, because
of the disbursements necessary to furnish the
rooms, advertising, printing, Ac, which, here
after, or tor some time, at least,wlll not again
ooour. .
The roll of membership is quite large, and
compares favorably with the Merchants' Ex
change of this city, and the prospects in this
respect, although the attendance is not what
tne Directors could, desire, are very encourag
ing.
The rooms of the Exchange, at the corner of
rnira ana walnut, are xeptopon tor tne con
venienoe of members, daily from 9 A. M. to 3
P, M., and a daily record of the attendance
has been kept, open for insiiectlon at all times.
whioh the Board regards as a good feature, and
therefore reoommends its continuance as a
matter of historical interest.
The Board regret that an Exohange of such
a character should he so little appreciated by
the parties for whose benefit it was organized,
and affirm that the oause does not lie In the
want of members, but in their individual In
fluence. They have not made it a place of trade, nor
have they attended regularly. They have not
invited or lnouoeii traders to attend its meet
ings. They have not made It a directory
representive if business. They have not sut-
noientiy advertised their trades and callings
on the bulletin boards. They have not ex
posed their articles of trade on exohange.
They have not generally used the exohange
boxes as a medium of intercourse. The me
chanic and manufacturers have not oloaed
their contracts here. The arohiteot has not
laid his plana open to be examined by those
interested. The oarpenter, bricklayer, and
mason, have purchased their material else
where. The Exohange, the report says, should be a
place of regular daily attendance, and the
regular trausaotion of business a mart and
an emporium for trade a daily resort of five
hundred or more meehanios, manufacturers
and others; a daily expoaitor of industrial and
kindred pursuits, a grand intelligence depot
where could be purchased all articles from a
load of sand to a steam-engine, from a plank
to a railroad oar.
The most difficult year of the oriels of a new
organisation has been pasaed; the Exohange
la free from debt; the members bave good and
comfortable rooms and furniture, suitable fa
cilities are presented for the transaction of
business, and the Board earnestly hope it may
be appreciated by the membera, that they will
oast of their previous indiffereaoe, and that
during the oomiog year it may benefit those
interested, and accomplish theobjeot for whioh
it was founded.
Grand Jcrt Reports. The Grand Jury
reported yesterday the following indictments
in the Court of Common Pleaa, Judge Carter

to D rate. We have chronicled during the
present week at least a dozen fatal acoidsnts
by burning, and are now called upon to record
another death by this horrible and, at present,
fearfully frequent method. The nurse of a
couple of small girls, whose names we have
not been able to ascertain, residing on Walnut
Hills, left the children playing together in a
room while she went to the cellar. ' During
her absence the youngest, a bright-eyed child
of five years of age, stepped too near the fire,
and her olothing having caught she was soon
enveloped in flames. Her screams brought
the nurse to her side, but it was too late: for
the fiery fingers of the flame had already fin
ished their orimson feat, and the little sufferer
had become a soulless mass of roee-hued ashes.
Ninth Annual Exhibition or tbi Colorbd

the different departments evinced a degree of

AMUSEMENTS.
'"Pus's OriiA-HOCBR. The audience last
night at the Opera house wM veiTflne, and the per.

new and thrilling play of Looiaa na Lionaaottts
will be presented in connection with the MinvnMr.B

enamored, and, being caught, has coneented to ap
pear once more. The mandates of the talry King,
KOlMroa,,'arenotiiliJome,and the plaudit, of an
audience must be gratifying. We feel assured that
the house will be crowded, and if an Increase of
lovers have any charms for the mischievous and
sweet-eyed fairy " Puck " will not regret the per
formance. Wood's Thsatir. To-night the Dntoh
Comedian will appear for the lut lime at thia estab
lishraent, and an immense bill has been offered
which will doubtless crowd the house. On Monday
night a new p ay entitled Th Fataust oa Viaiom
orTKiFimiBi, will be produced for the Bret time.
It la said, by those who have beard it read, to be full
of dramatic interest and thrilling situations, and
will be put upon the stage with splendid costumes,
new scenery, and all the effect that properties w 11 be
able to give It. The well-known taete of Mr. Bllsler,
and the time he haa had to prepare for the forthcom
ing production, together with the interest always
felt ia a new drama, will doubtless draw full houses,
and make the play, If it prove to be what It is repre
sented, a complete auccees.
National Thbatsr. The audience at the
National last night, although enthusiastic, was not
so large as the beneficlare deserved. Her impersona
tion of "Adrienne" bad all the characteristics that
hare made alisa Davenport both a favorite and fa
mous, and in some of the acenea she excelled even
her already brilliant reputation. To-night she will
appear for the last time before a Cincinnati audience,
and she offers a bill which should, and we doubt not
will, fill the rhouse. It consists of Dot, ob Thk
Cbickst on tub Hbabtb, and the thrilling drama of
OHtBLOTTiCoanAY, in both of wbicb MissD. will
appear.
Mxlodron Hall. On Monday evening
the well-known and exceedingly popular Back

fun and music at the Melodeon ball. As delinea
tors of negro ob.aract.er this troupe have attained a
high reputation, and their music and dances have
everywhere been loudly applauded. Hiss Julia
Oould is among the company, and haa already dis
tinguished herself to such an extent as to require no
word from us in her favor. All who delight in amuse
ment of this kiud, we are sure, will n"tfail o be
pleased with this company.
Conckbt To-niqbt. The New Orleans and
Metropolitan Burlesque Opera Companies Combined,
aive their last peformance this evening at Smith
Nixon's Hall. The troupe ie large and good, and
will doubtless have an audience that will fill the
house.

Singular Affair—A Husband Drops
Dead at the Grave of his Wife.
We have just heard of one of the most sin
gular incidents that, during our journalistio
experience, we have been called upon to record,
and one too whioh is as sad as it is strange.
About two montns ago tne wife ot Dir. James
Edrineton, residing a short distance from the
city, was standing near the fire-place, when
her clothing oame in contact with the names,
which were soon communicated to her person,
and before assistance oould reach her she was
so severely burnt that after lingering in the
extremest agony until Wednesday last, she
died from its effects.
Yesterday the woman was buried, and just
at the moment the earth was being cast upon
her coffin the husband, who seemed to suffer
extremely at the death of his wife, fell to the
ground in an apparently lifeless condition.
He was taken up and conveyed to his resi
dence, but, although still breathing, his phys
icians have little hope of his ultimate recovery.
Nnw Volumb or Tea Artisan. The first
number of the third volume of the Artisan, a
journal of patents, soienoe, art, discovery and
invention, published in this city, has been
laid upon our table. It Is a neatly printed
weekly quarto, devoted to the advanoing and
promulgation of all information which is more
particularly of a scientific character, and all
the various industrial pursuits. It is illustra
ted with fine original engravings, and is edited
with care and ability. It oontaini a weekly
Hat of English patents, reviews of patent ope
rations in Europe, and both typographically
and as a journal for familes and general read
ers is a credit to the publishers and the city.
The present volnme introdaces a new fea
ture to its subscribers, called the "Field and
Garden," and it is proposed to devote one page
of each issue to the soience of Agriculture and
Horticulture. This will reader it extremely
valuable to farmers and others, beside making
it more attractive as a iamuy paper. Ane
Artitan has become one of the inatitutlons of
our city, and we heartily wish for it a con
tinued success.

RIVER NEWS.
The Ohio continued to recede veaterdav at
tbia port, and the river was still full of floating Ice;
but the Quantity going down wae not so steady as it
has been, and was lees heavy, enabling the ferries to
maae tneir inps wua leas aimcuity.
The weather was anlta moderata veaterdav. and
about ten o'clock at night it began to rain heavily,
and continued up to the hour we write two o'clock
A. M.
The ice in the river will, it la thought, now run
out, unless the weather turn cold again. The gorge
above Pomery has not yet broken.
On the Landing nothing is doing as yet, but some
of tbe steamers are still receiving freights at our
previous rates. Considerable freight that would have
been sent by the river haa gone forward by the Ohio
and Mississippi Bailroad to Cairo,
BVKAaf BB Bdbb. The steamer THam'nnil. an nld
boat plying between ibis port and New Orleans, ran
into the bank of the Miuisalppl below Memphis, a
night or two since, and snnk In a few minutes. Bhe
was worth about 812,000, and was owned by Captain
DliLear. Her loss is supposed to be complete. The
passengers all escaped.
