City Improvements.
At no lima within our recollection Lava
a had mora substantial avidtinc that our
citizens are waking up to a proper ppirit
public enterpriza than at present. Messrs.
Geo. Ring, Jno. Snyder, Joseph Orccn,
Nelson Smith, and Levingston seem to ba
the principal spirits in the south part of the
city.
Mr- Snyder and Mr. Ring are engaged
in extending the manufacturing interests
of the city in a way that cannot fail to re
ceive the hearty approval of amy true
lorer of her interests, and we trust will
meet the hearty co-operation of our men
of capital. It will require more than an
effort on the part of a few individuals to
place us in the first rank of inland cities
every man among us who feels himself
able to lend any aid should not hesitate for
a moment to assist in this most laudable
and praise worthy object.
We hare not time at this particular mo
mnnt to speak of this subject and theso
men as their merits deserve, but shall en.
deavor to do so at some more convienient
period. Meanwhile keep your eye on thorn
and extend all the encouragement in your
power.
JtSrDelano's Independent Horse-rnke,
manufactured by P. T. Gallup, of this
city, is a most ingenious and useful inven
tion, and should bo in the hands of every
farmer in the county. The great advan
tage of this rake over all others consists in
its being so constructed as to adapt itself to
rough and rocky ground equally with a
smooth surface. It is said that a boy four
teen years of age can manage it with per
fect ease. The patient being pretty gpn.
orally known totho Agriculturalcommnni
ty, we deem any farther remarks and ex
planations unnecessary.
Mr. Gallup has recently eslahlished
himself in this city, and intends manufac
turing a large variety of Agricultural Im
plements. Ho is the very man wo have
long stool in need of, and we trust he wil
meet with every encouragement from the
firming community. See his advertise
ment of Reaping and Mowing machine in
another column.
Tub Capture ot Baker. It is slated in
tlio New York papers that the whole ex
pense of going after and arresting Baker,
the murderer of Poole, was born by Geo.
Lw. He furnished the ship, and defray
od the ensh expenses of the voyage out nnd
in, amounting to some 1,530 dollars. The
city authorities on being applied to, would
go no farther than the outlay of 250 dol
lars, to which sum the discretion in such
oases of the Mayor was limited. But for
the public spiiit of Mr. Law the murderer
would have gone free, as it was evident
his escape had been winked at by a
portion of the police, with whom Ba
ker had been formerly associated in the
service.
j2T A Locomotive and tender on the
Lake Shore Road, made sad havoc among
the sheep of Mr. E. foreman. The sheep
were pasturing in the "big tield"-tliiougli
which the railway passes; and being an
immense flock, numbers were upon the
track. . The engine coming nlongat a high
speed, and closely followed by another en
gine, could not slacken its speed, hut pass
ed over nnd killed between fifty nnd sixty
of the animals. The sheep were valuable
ones, very choieo wooled; and their whole
sale destruction is a loss not easily repair
ed.
TIi c County Fair.
We would call particular attention to
the Agricultural advertisement in another
column. It is highly necessary that a full
Attendance of the Committee should be had
on the occasion, as business of the greatest
importance connected with the county
Fair will be brought up for discussion.'
Every farmer in the county should take a
deep and lasting interest in every thing
relating to Agricultural interests they
are the most directly benefitted by these
public exhibitions, and we trust they will
not bo backward in manifesting their wil
lingncss to make the coming Fair all it
should be.
Huoiies ih Jersey Cm. Archbishop
Hughes, according to the Jersey City Tele
graph, is the owner of 851,000 worth of
property in that place. It would bring
$70,000, under the hammer at any time
It is highly probable that at the next ses
aion of the New Jersey Legislature, in
view of these facts, and the recent manifes
tations ofdiscontent among the Catholics
of Newark, some steps will be taken, as in
the Buffalo Church case, to give the con
trol of Church property in New Jersey to
' their laity and trustees.
JCSTWe devote our columns this week
almost exclusively to correspondents, con
sequently we have little room for editorial.
Both communications in to-days paper are
written by old-line Democrats, who have
been close watchers of the manceverings
of the Red Lodge Clique, and what they
say can ba relied upon as inoontrovertable
facts. We trust the reador wili pay par
ticular attention to these articles, as they
speak of matters of great public interest.

Slavery In the JTIetbodlti Cburch.
The followog preamble tod resolutions
passed tlx Naw-Yofk Conference of the
Methodist Episoopal Cburch at its session
in Sing Sing with great unanimity:
Whereas, Tb oirenmstanoes in whiub
we. are placed as ministers of the Motliod-
diit Episcopal Cburch, ore such ts una
voidably to loroa Hie subject of Slavery
upon our attention, as we are constantly
reminded of this great evil by ear Book of
Discipline! those who uphold this ay-stum
seem to be aiming not only at the mainten
ance of past and present position, but its
indefinite extension and diffusion; and, as
in endeavoring to accomplish their purpos
es they have frequently come in conflict
Willi our rights as American citizens, but
with our religious and censcientious con
victions as Christians; therefore,
Resolved, That Slavery is to be regard
ed not only as a political and social but as
a moral evil, although where the relation of
slaveholder is involuntary and made neces
sary by ciroumstanues, it ceases to be a
sin.
Retained, That in our opinion the sys
tem of American Slavery as existing in
the United States, is accompanied with pe
culiar aggravations, and we should unceas
ingly aim at its extirpation by all cotntitu
tional and leg-il means.
Resolved, That the disposition constant
ly shown by those in the interest of Slavery
to extenu ana perpetuate the institution,
occasions our most profound regret, and
requires to bo met on our part" with the
moitdecidod, though consistent and Christ
ian opposition.
Resolved, That while representing so
large a body of Christians, and cons'antly
coming in contact with tho peculiar cir
cumstances and influences which are crea
ted by the progress of events, we consider
it proper to give expression to the forego
ing sentiments. We nevertheless unite in
the opinion that the Discipline of our
Church in its general rules, and in the
section on Slavery, maintains substantially
tho right ground in regard to this great
evil; that we are satisfied with it as it is,
and that no change in this respect is desir
able. Resolved, That in accordance with the
prece ling resolution wo deem it expedient
and therefore non-contmr in the resolutions
of the North Ohio, Erie and Wisconsin
Conferences.

at a late hour on Friday evening, having
completed all its business. We learn that
tho session was well attended, members

next session will be held in the city of
Cleveland.
Wheat Crop in Maryland. We have

The rich agricultural prod uols of the !
Western States are the chief mesne ly!
wuicb seashore mercnaeu and capitalists j
become rich, From the profits of our i
trade the palaces in Fifth Avenue and ,
sjacon street sre built, and tue millionaires i
of New York and Boston are made. The 1
West ia the granary of the Union, from I
whence the people of tba Atlantic States '
are fed; and yet. In consequence oft falsa
system of trade, the West is held subject to '
the money and produce brokers of the big!
Eastern cities. They toil not. neither do
they spin; and yet the men of toil in the i
West, who till the earth, and produce the '
staples necessary for existence, arc made
subservieut to tin whims and caprices of
the non-producers. Why is it that the!
bulnnce of trade is generally against the I
West, that i.isteru Juxohange ranges from
a half to oco and a half per cent, premium,
when we are the producers of wealth, and J
they are only the traffickers therein. It is
because the West fails to avail itself of its
latent power.
Why should we notmake our own boots
and shoes in the West? Why should we
not make our own cotton and calicos, and
wollon goods? The raw materials for the
manufacture of ail these necessary articles
of clothing are cheaper hare than in the
East; our wool goes to Massachusetts and
New York, to be manufactured, and we
have to buy it back in the various forms of
merchandise; our hides go cast to be tan
nod, and we buy them back when made
into boots and shoes. Tho profits arising
from the manufacture of these and other
articles make eastern men wealthy, and to
pay tor them the products of our corn and
wheat fluid are used. When the poopleof
the West understand more fully their real
power and importance, they will bring a-
boot a change. I he West beinor the pro
ducing section of the country, ought to be
the most wealthy. Here it is that money
should be more abundant than in any oth
er part of the Union, but instead of that
wo have the least capital; Money to-day in
New York nnd Boston is worth but six
per cent. Horo it is hard to be got at less
than ten, with undoubted security.
Wo havo been looking, and uo now look.
to tho East for the means to build our rail
roads and make our improvements. Our
railroad presidents and company financiers
spend half their time in New York, danc-
ng attendance to Wull street brokers and
capitalists tho men whom the Wost feeds,
the men whom the West has mado rich.
They never produuo anything they never
contributed to the material wealth of the
country; and yet they have been made rich,
and affect patronizing airs towards West
ern men, who ask to borrow money to car
ry on some great public improvement,
which, when finished, is sure to add to the
already bloated wealth of the seaboard
cities. There is hardly a day that there
is not a dozen presidents of Western rail
roads to be seen lobbying around the brok
er's offices in Wall street, trying to induce
those gentlement to advance money on
Western bonds, stocks, and other securi
ties. The money-lenders presume upon
this vast demand. They make their own
terms, and think they are conferring a great
favor if they purchase good seven per cent
bonds at half or two-thirds their par value.
And then the degradingcharacterof this
service how galling to a man of inde
pendent Western mind to be dancing at
tendance for weeks together at the heels
of the jobbers in stocks, and brokers in
money! Put off from day to day with "call
again to-morrow, I am too busy to hear
your case to-day, I have an engagement
up town," &c. And the Western man,
perhaps who has been a Ju Jgo.a Governor,
a mombor of Congress, has to tie up his
maps, bundle up his papers, tr.ke up his
hat, make his bow, and clear the room of
his presence He goes to his rmm in his
hotel, for which he pays his three dollars
a day, and hopes the money king will giro
him a favorable hearing on the morrow.
The morrow comes, and a liko indignity is
offered. At length, after having spent
several hundred dollars in hotel nnd travel
ing expenses, hope dies withiug him, and
he comes back a sadder if not a wiser man
than he was when he went away. Or if
he has accomplished any thing," if ho has
sold his bonds or stocks, it has been at
such ruinous rates that the prospect of a
dividend to the original projectors or hold
ers of the stock, the mea who have mort
gaged their farms, and oxponded a large
part of their hard earnings to help along
the enterprise, is poor indeed. All tho
earnings of the road nre swallowed up in
wear and toar expenses, and in paying tho
interest on the bonds to enrich still more
the dwellers of the Fifth Avenue.
Wo hold that this whole thing is wrong,
is demoralizing and slavish. It is under
mining the spirit of independence of west
ern men, and making tli6m mere serfs and
beggars to an oligarchy of money-lenders
in the Atlantil cities an olighrchy that
depend upon western labor and western
products for their very existence. We
feed and we clothe them, and if our busi
ness men, our enterprising men, and our
men of mind and character, would but take
hold of the natural resources of tho West,
and manufacture as well as produce from
the earth make their own clothing.as well
as raise their own food be subject to no
city and no class, but independent of all,
they would nnd their resources qundrnpl
ed, and their means to make and finish
their railroads ample, without having re'
course to the monicd brokers of the sea'
board. When will wostern men learn their
power, and shake off this poisoned shirt of
Nessus which is eating into the marrow of
people. Ctn. Uazelte.
Plans or Atchison fe Co. Georce
S. Park, late of the Parkville Luminary,
publishes a long letter in tho St. Louis
Democrat. He says that Atchison and
Stringfellow have organized a secret asso
ciation, the members of which are sworn
to turn out and fight when called upon, nnd
to share all damages accruing to any
moraber, even at the price of disunion
when a man is proscribed. They shall
act secretly to destroy the character of all
Northern men. All men dissenting from
their doctrines are to be expelled from
Western Missouri, and held in constant ter
ror. All Benton and Whic presses are to
be destroyed. The destruction of the hotel
in Kansas and the Lawrence presses is de
creed. Cannon are to be taken to demol
ish them at a distance. They would not.
stop till every Freesoiler is driven out of
Missouri and Kanzas. Governor Price
and President Pioroe have been telegraph
ed for protection, but no answer was civ-
en. Threats previously made are tracea
ble to Atohison. As to the destrnction of
the Xumtnaryestablishment, Mr, Park
promises farther developments.

there received was permitted to be made
public, the Government retaiuiu" the ex

works, together with a larjre number of
guns and mortars. The encounters had
been frequent aud mostly sanguinary. A
large number of the Kusaiani had been
taken prisoners. Notwithstanding these
advantages, the effects proJuced by the
bombardment wero not of such a charac
tor as to justify an assault, and the bom
bardment of the allies not having pro
dueed the anticipated results, had slacken
ed off very decidedly, for the purpose, it
is stated, of not exhausting the ammuni
tion. There can be no doubt, whatever,
that the situation of the allies was gener
ally regarded ns critical in the extreme.
Immense Russian forces are reported
concentrating in the vicinity of Sevastopol,
amounting it is admitted, to one hundred
thousand men.
A most determined attempt had been

The King of Prussia is ill of fever.
Lord Haglan in an official dispatch ad
mits that tho bombardment of the Allies
ha 1 not produced the expected result.
The number of tho Allies killed and
wounded is not largo.
The impression in England was becom
ing quite general that the siege would bo
abandoned for the present, and that the
whole of the defenses of Kemnisch and
Kalaklava would be left to tho defense of a
few corps, while tho main portion of the
Allies would try and penetrate into the
interior and attempt to cutoff the supplies
from Sevastopol, nnd then completely in
vest the city. Numerous reinforcements
of the Allies were continually arriving.
The French reserve of eighty thousand
were near Constantinople, and were ex
pecting to bo sent to Balakluva.
The Russian official accounts of the
progress of the siege are to the 24th.
They say the damage sustained had not
been repaired with promptness and facili
ty, while tho skirmishos were generally
successful. The loss sustained by the gar
rison from the 1 1 tit totho 15:h April were
seven subalterns and four huudred and
fifty six men killed; and six superior, thirty-four
subaltern officers, and eighteen
hundred and ninety-nine men wounded.
On the night of the 17th. the English
captured the first Russian Rifle pit, nfier n
desperate encounter, in which Col. Gra
ham Egerton, the field officer in command,
was killed.
On the 2 Jth, an attack was made on the
second Russian rifle pit, and it was almost
immediately abandoned.
Accordingto the statement of two Polish
deserters, one hundred thousand Russian
forces were in the vicinity of Sevastopol,
sixty thousand of whom had arrived from
the forts of the nor:h side of tho harbor,
and had taken part in tho cannonade, car
rying tho balls clear into the enemies lines.
The telegraph linos from London to the
Crimea were 'completed, except a small
portion over tho Danube, and dispatches
were being received every four hours by
the Government, but few of them made
public, though questions in regard to the
nature of the advicos were being daily ask
ed in Parliament, but the Ministers declar
ed that due discretion should bo used in
regard to the publication of the news.
Lord John Russell had again taken his sent
in the house, when he stated the substance
of the negotiations and intimated that the
protocols should be submitted to Parlia
ment. On the night of tho first of May a sharp
engagement occurred, the front and left of
tho Russian rifle pits were attacked and
taken, with eight light mortars and two
hundred prisoners. The affair is repre-
sentated as a most brilliant one for tho
allies.
On Wednesday night, the 2d inst., the
French under Gen. Pelisscor attacked the
advanced works of the quarantine bastion,
and carried them at the point of the bay
onet, taking twelve mortars, and estab
lishing themselves in tho position. The
following Thursday night the Russians
made a sortie to regain tho position, nnd
after a sanguinary encounter were driven
back.

test the market, the offerings being very
light. Holders are very firm as the clip,
it is anticipated by many, will not be a
largo one, owing to the less atteniion paid
to it the past year. Pulled is inactive nnd
there is nothing doing in foreign. The an

Wool Sale. -Mess: a. Sessions & Har
ris have furnished us with a statement of
wool sales in New York, by Small and
Henly, May 17th. 150,000 pounds of A
merican fleece was sold on that day. The
price of unwashed ranged from Hi cents
per pound, upwards. For washed, mostly
common and one-fourth blood, the price
was 304-cents per pound.
In this market the price at the opening
will range from 3 to & cents per pound
less than that of last year. Sessions and
IlanUhave already bought about 5000
pounds at from 18 to 30 cents per pound.
Forex'.r.t the prh e ranges higher. If tho
season proves good for crops, and money
becomes more plenty, the price of wo.il will
increase, probably beyontl thatof last year.
But this is mere guess work. O. S. four.
