In lh tdcisant and romantic vi
in w hicli the lot of the writer of the
following veracious anecdote was catt for otn
months, there resides, or did reside, a person
who delighted in the name ol Joe Harvey.
If Joe had any faults, they were drukenness
and Inxin'ss, but more particularly the latter,
as his total disinclination to any exception frequently
restrained him from procuring those
beverages which delighted his soul.
During line Wieather, Joe was to bo Seen
either hanging about tho village tavern, or
sleeping under iome treo around which he
would diuinally retrolvo to protect himself
from the rays of the sun as it travelled across
the heaven. In winter, lie. would lake refuge
in tho poor house, and cause the county
hae to support its most reckless inhabitant,
until the return of spring nmJo his leafy
couches again available.
Upon ono occasion Inning partaken freely
of mine host's good wbiskey, I nd betaken him
self to his cust.iuiarv tree, and was in a few
g'pg in tliu lirain ol iiMjor 13 , one
of the liveliest of the lively. The Major seeing
Joe snoring "tuh trjmint f'a-ji." proposed
to his fiiends that they should take nnd bury
him, as he was of no further use to himself,
ids family, or any one else but on the cun
trurv, a tax to every one.
The suggestion was immediately adopted,
and as immediately acted on. To go to the
undertaker' procure a coffin, and nut in it the
unconwiouR body of their victim, was but the
work of an instant ; and then, as newspapers
say, the mournful cortege proceeded.
On the way, they were met by a neighbor
ing wealthy farmer, wlio asked wlioiu they
were about burying.
"Joe Harvey," said the Major.
"Why, is old Joe (lead at last?"
"No, he's not dead; but we lire going to
bury him, to put him out of the way before
winter sets in."
"Oh," said the farmer, "don't do that, let
him go a little longer, and I will give hi:u corn
enough to keep him until spring."
At these words the sleeping form was seen
to move, and the languid, maudlins features
of old Joe emerged slowly from the level of
the coilin. His half-peeled eves revealed two
blood -shot balls which seemed to f
in the direction of his noble iuterceder
mustering all his energy, in a totie scarcely
above a whisper, he enquired:
"Is your corn shelled"?"
"No," was the dead iespor.se.
"Then," said Joe, unhesitatingly, as lie re
lapsed into his coflin, "Me along the corpse.'"

"May it please your Infernal Majesty: In
the town of Tippleton your cause is prosperous.
Your majesty has as many faithful servants
there as in any other place of its size.
It contains from 2500 to 3000 inhabitants and
there are from 20 to 30 tippling shops well
supplied with customers hence, the name of
Tippleton. 1 speak especially of your majes
ty's servants wlio sell whiskey, because your
majesty well knows that they are your most
faithful servants. Indeed, I have observed
that the misery and iniquity in which your
majesty so muh delights, abound just in pro
poition to the amount of w hiskey which your
majesty's servants sell.
Jiul to come to particulars. There are in
tippleton, aim niaKey county, oo lamiiies
that Jack su.Ticieiit food und clothing, because
the fathers nnd husbands spend their earnings
at the whiskey shops. There are 150 chil
dren growing up in ignorance, nnd accustom
ed to a sense of shame and degredation on
account of the drunkenness of their fathers.
Ihis fact J know will allord your majesty es
pecial satisfaction. There ire also 23 young
men between the nges of 15 and 2o who ure
digging for themselves a drunkard's grave.
I here are 93 wives n lio are rendered utterly
miserable bv the brutality, cruelty and ne
glect of their husbands. Seventeen of these
am already broken-hearted, and look upou
n-ath as the only relief lor their in;sery.
There are in Tippleton a few temperance men,
may .here never be more, (here every devil,
from I. is majehly on the throne, dou to the
lowest sub, gnashed their teeth,) but they are
of no srcoiint.
In coi.c'iiion, let me recomn.end your ma
j.fSty "s servants who sell whiskey in Tippleton,
to) our majesty's especial favor. They de
serve well of your majesty. They are of the
right stamp. There ure not more than two or
three among them, who do not evry day soli
whiskey to men who they know uro sacrificing
health, hope, good name, and eternal salva
tion to n drunkard's appetite. (Here there
was great applause; every devil stamped his

The Board of Public Works and the
As wc have heretofore stated, tho mana
gers of the Junction Hail Road Company, for
the purpose of evading tho plain provisions of
their charter, got up n rail road compnny un
der the general rail road law, called the Port
Clinton Kail Road Company, in tho name of
which, they presented to the acting commis
sioner of the Hoard of Public Works, a plan of
a rail road bridge to be constructed across the
Sandusky Hay. This application being en
tirely ex parte, acco.npatiicd by such state
ments as might be expected from that source,
an approval was er.tered upon the journal of
t'ic Hoard. As soon as the citizens of Fre
mont ascertained what had been done, they
applied to tho Hoard for ft reconsideration and
recession of the order. The matter was set
for hearing on the 17th inst., when the case
was fully argued on behalf of the citizens of
H''rem':ntt DV Messrs. Pugh and IIave.R, and by
I Mr- Uucber for tho Port Clinton Rail Road
Company, or rather the Junction Rail Road
Company, disguised under tho name of the
Port Clinton Company. The Board of Pub
lic Works, when they came to understand the
matter, unanimously rescinded the order, not
by a moro majority vote, as tho Register
would have it. Thus ends the first chapter.
The next will come off on the 11th of March
next, when the citizens will apply to Judge
Starkweather at Cleveland, for an injunction
against tho Junction and Port Clinton Rail
Road Companies, and others, attempting to
obstruct the navigation of the Sandusky IJny.
We shall then sec whether an arm of Lake
Eric, from ono and a quarter to four miles
wide, and 18 miles in length, and navignble
for sail veosels, can bo obstructed and nar
rowed down to a few feet, to accommodate
rail road speculators, and without any author
ity of law. If Rail Road Companies are to be
permitted to disregard their charters and ride
over and shallow up all other interests with
impunity, the sooner it is known the better.
The Whig State Convention assem
bled at the City Hall, Columbus, on 22d, was
far moie numerouuly attended, than many of
our friends had anticipated. Those who have
long stood as immovable pillars in the Whig
ranks, with heads white with tho frosts of age,
were there. Those in the meridian of life,
with unimpaired faculties and wise from ex
perience, were there. The young man of our
party, full of tin), hope otid candor, were
there. Ths strong and honest men of our par
ty and State, were there all deeply concern
ed for the true interest of our great State and
country. A more harmonious political con
vention, perhaps has never been held any
where, or at any time; and surely litter men,
in the most unlimited sensj of the word, were
never nominated to fill any political station our
country can give. With the trtie principles of a
Republican Government and our une.xceptioii
ublu nominations, we cannot, certainly, be de
feated. As to the doings of our present Leg
islature, wo deem it unnecessary to say any
thing now. Their lawlessness and prodigali
ty, we think, aro pretty well and generally
known to the people. They must receive their
reward sooner or later.
Having been absent most of this week, will
account for the leanness of thu editorial of this
number of our paper.
Tho only loathsome objects in universal na
ture that wu hate more than snakes and skunks

The snake bites because prompted to do so

because Nature has made it a fetid animal;
but those snaky stinking nondescripts, created
after the image and similitude of man, have
made themselves such, by perverting reason
and all those noble endowments, that distin
guish men from mere instinctive existences.
We wish them no harm, nor those who per
mit them to violate with impunity, all the prin
ciples of ci mtnon dectmcy, for they shall all
receive their nieiit d reward in due lime; but

It mny ovoke the enquiry "whnt am I to do'
but it does not answer it. So the Tribune
points at a few corrections of the errors so
powerfully portrayed by the Review. It
1. "Our "best society" is empty, false, un
worthy, because it has no aims beyond luxu
ry, indolence, and the nvoidar.ee of responsi
bility nnd care." Its views of life nro wrong.
This wrong neither the Seminary nor the press,
nor scarcely the Pulpit seek to eradicate.
The basis of reform must rest on this idea
that no hitman being has a moral right to lead
an idle, selfish, pleasure-seeking lif . A c hris

would be deemed a quiz or a lunatic, because
it has no earnest purpose no worthy aim,
Give it this earnest purpose, nnd this worthy
aim, nnd "Good Society" so culled would van

barbarous." It ministers chit (ly to the gros

late hours, are all and all with it. It is n
fruitful source of 'disease, debility 'and prema

If the fashionables were bar-lenders, or re

heavy suppers, what feeds sensuality, to avoid
extravagance und profusion. Atk the Tiib

Another Account of the French Empress.
Tho London correspondent of the Boston
Post, who has seen Mademoiselle Montigo,
gives what that paper says is a true descrip
tion of her persouul appearance, as follows, iu
which he certainly represents her in a much
more favorable light than sumo other accounts
To those who remember tho duchess of Te
ba as she appeared during her visits to the
great exhibition of 1851, it will not be incom
prehensible how the Emperor of France has
consented that she should share his throne.
She is certainly one of tho most beautiful wo
men of her time. Below thu medium height
of ladies of tho United States, she possesses,
nevertheless, thai perfect symmetry of person
which makes ber appear taller than she real
ly is. Her feet and uncles are of perfect mouid ;
her carriage is graceful; her head finely set
upon her shoulders, and her fuce intellectual
and eminently beautiful. Sho has the black
hair, pencilled brows, und lustrous durk eye of
the Spanish women, with the clear, brilliant
complexion of a more northern latitude; and
her nock and breast would furnish a model
for the sculptor. Her mind is said to be fine
ly cultivated, and her powers of conversation
fitted to second her personal attractions. That
she has great self respeet is evinced by her
whole courso since the inclinations of Louis
Napoleon were first apparent to ber. She bus
never been seen in public, in his company ; has,
apparently, discouraged his attentions; was
not at the ball at the Tuilleries on Saturday
night, which was supposed to be given in her
honor, and declines now appearing in society
until afler tbe solemnation of the marriage.
Ths civil part of tho ceremony will take place
on Saturday of this week at .).e Tuilleries, and
the religion ceremonies on the next day at

Notre Dame. The preparations for tie lal!
ter are to be magnificent. The high altar it
to be brought forwand ; the portion .f tbe
church rounu it to be brilliantly ornamonled 1
and lighted ; n superb canopy suspended ovir
it; the galleries to be hung with crimson vel,:
vel, and seats for public functionaries, in form
of an amphitheatre, to be erectod all over the

Auffll-l,d ''llli'CcnKJ Tl.u.i.finaM a
us of Mr. Ericsson's achievement of Scientific
Mechanism, ives him nn American name
and renown which the world will not willing
ly let die. But he must not suppose, for all
that, that he is the first of his name and nation
who hs been recorded on the roll of Ameii
can celebrities: he is only out of the famous
Ericssons. The historic render will remem
ber the Norse discovery of this continent, and
agree that if our calorific cotcmporary is des
tined to fill his page in our history, his Sean
diiiRvim precursors of tho same name have
already had their leuf in it Leif Ericsson, ill
fact, (son of Eric the Red,) the first discover
er of America, nnd his two brothers, Thorwald
and Thorstein Ericsson, who in the begininif
of tho eleventh century, looked successively
up the mouth of the lordly Hudson, ate the
grape of Rhode Island and Nantucket, and
lived or died in booths on the shore of Maine
and Nova Scotia, near five hundred years be

America. No doubt i iir living "frieni and

ber.it-her that drove the world u vigorously
ahead before their dragon proivs, once upon
time, a;U! carri-d the teiiitile fmie of Noise
enterprise and war fiom the ''blue rold nose"
of Greenland Hercules Pillars and the troub
led billows of the Bosphorus; so that when
he shall take his place in Yalhulla, he will find
ready listeners about the snips of a later age,
and can astonish those ghosts of old pilots
the Ericssons with the story of what the
Good Vinland has grown to, and how two or
three chums of hot air does the business of
the wild breezes! There was a short account
of the Erii sson discovery of America in the
Times a little time ago apropos of Ole Bull,
the scald another child of Norseland. Mr.
Eiicsson, then, may consider himself quite at
home here, in the neighborhood of distinguish
ed antecedents nnd grateful fellowcitixens.
We are all very much obliged to bis name
sake for finding us outfir.t, and to himself for
giving his airy something a local habitation
and a name among us. When we make some
worthy memorial of this Ericsson achievement,
we should not forget the older Ericsson claim
in the inscription. Rafn and the rest give us
authority for it which can no longer be deub

Some of the papers of late have had a par
agraph recommending the use of wheal flour

at Dayton saw it, nnd the other day, as ha
writes, tested it to hie satisfaction. lie says:
"While at the supper table, a little child,
which was seated in the mother's lap, sudden

verely scalding its left hand and arm. I im

the arm into it, covering entirely the part
scalded, with the flour. The effect was truly
remarkable the pain was gone instantly.' I
