committees are reported back and finally disposed of.
This makes lively times (or all conndeted with it.
One of the most Important bills of the present session
was the one providing for the sale of railroads. There
are a number of railroad companies in the state that will
avail themselves of its provisions at nn early day. it i
designed to protect railroad companies ss tar as may be
rotnistent with the interests of their creditors and of the
Another bill relative to railroads, of considerable Im
portance, hs also passed. I refer to the bill a I Job is
designed to prevent the combination of certain companies
to monopolize business and prevent a legitimate and pro
per competition. This bill was Introduced, I believe, at
the suggestion of the IViends of the Davtnn k Miehican
Railroad, and it owes much of its success t" the untiring
efforts of the superintendent of that Mad. It will enable
them to reduce their tariff on all freight to lie carried over
tne v inrmnati, Hamilton Uayton rood, without uitntn
lsinng ineir pronts, 1
The bill to encourage and insure the safe keeping of
the public arms in the bands of Volunteer companies has
passed. This bill allows each company five dollars per
man to be exclusively applied to the care of the compa
ny s inns,
A bill has passed which prohibits revolving swings,
whirligigs, shows, c, from a nearer approach to coun
ty fair grounds than ono-half a mile, unless bv permis
sion of tho board of managers.
the mil to punish those who may he in the habit or
marking the tickets of doubtful voters, passed and is now
The bill providing for the erection of a new peniten
tiary passed both branches of the lienerallv Assembly
and the Senate has had about thirty ballots on the
lecation without any approach towards' a seltlomont of
the question. Hamilton has had the highest vote, and
the contest will probably rest lietweon that place and
Zanesville. I have no doubt hut its loention at Hamil
ton would best proniotethe interests of your conntv, since
the communication is direct, and It would also add much

The bill .'or leasing tbe public works still hangs fire in
the Senate. Tho Backus company's bid of $10,000 per
year for ten years, which passed the House, drew forth
other propositions ; one from Conover A Co,, of Pious
for 15,000 1 one from Old Jo. Cooin-r, of Cincinnati, for
$20,000 : and still another from t7mover &. Co.. for $25.-
000. The Senate in committee of the whole, struct) out
the specific leose, and adopted a plan for leasing to tho
highest bidder, providing that they should not be loosed
for less than $20,000. A motion to make the minimum
correspond wilh the bid of Conover A Co., $25,000, was
voted down, to the surprise of all. The old rats still hang
alxmt here. They embrace a largo numlicr of the real
old Norway strim-, wilh occasionally a man who has
hitherto liorne a good character. The fate ot the measure
is vet in doubt.
The committee appointed to fit upon a plan for tho an
portionmcnt of the State for Congressional pnrposca.have
reported a bill for that purpose. It wa agreed uxin in

Republicans ; and some of them will vote against it t
perhaps enough to compel a change in the present draft,
or defeat it altogether. The plan now proposed makes
the fifth district embrace the following counties ! Wil
liams, Fulton, Lucas, Wood, Otluwa, Sandusky and Sen
eca. The district, as thus constituted, will have a popu

the number nt inhabitants required lor a district. lien
you reflect that moat of the counties composinir the dis

will agree with me that wo should have less, rather tlian

the district are not mutual. Seneca, Sandusky and Ot'

The farmers aid nuchanics, the solid men
of Kentucky, Maryland and Virginia are said
to be hostile lo the theory that cotton is Ling.
There being none produced in those Hiates, of
course there is r.othing to recommr nd it lo their
favor. The cotton States' theory is to buy
everything in Europe, where the cotton is lo
be sold ; but this does not suit Kentucky,
Maryland and Virginia, which sell hogs, cat
tle, wheat and corn.to the free Hiates. These
States want ma dels both ways, Nor' and
South, snd a hocft market as well as a for
eign one. The cotton theory of selling ev
erything and buying eveiything on the other
side of the Atlantic, does not suit tbeir rase.
The mora they think of it, the better they
will he satisfied that it there mutt be a cotton
kingdom, those who raise to cotton bad bet
ter keep out of it.
