FOR BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS,
ALEXANDER G. C0N0VER,
of Auglaize county.
Locofoce Platform for 1850.
The fallowing resolutions wm adopted at
th Democratic Convention, mhieh awmbfed
;n Columbus, on the 4th of Jnlr, 185a Let
the PEOPLE OF OHIO ad aho umuiii
ResoWed. That with reference to the cur
rent; question, the Democracy of Ohio plaota
itself upon the Constitution of the United
State. The currency fixed by that instru
ment we desire to restore and establish, and
we win use all legal and honorable means to
accomplish this object; and being sincerely
apposed to the existence of banks for the cir
culation of paper money, we are utterly op
posed to any feature being incorporated into
the new Constitution, by which the Letislature
of Ohio would have the power to create any
bank for the circulation of paper money.
Resolved. That we consider it tbe duty of
all eur publie officers, after taking the oath to
support the Constitution of the United States,
to make all payments, in their official capaci
ty, in constitutional currency, instead of pa
per money; and that we especially demand
tram the Board of Public Works, thit tbey
convert aH paper money which may come under
their control into specie, and in that shape
Resolred, That banks of circulation are bos
tile alike to the equal rights of the people, and
the principles of sound political economy ; that
hard money is toe only currency recognized
by the Constitution, the only currency that
detrauds do man, the only currency that is ex
pedient and just; and we bold it to be incon
sistent with the principles of the party for
democrats to participate in creating or up
holding banking institutions.
Hard Money Report of the Currency Committee
In the Constitutional Convention,
In the Constitutional Convention, July 5th.
Sic 1. The General Assembly shall bare
no power to create any bank or banking insti
tution whatever, or to authorize the making,
emission nr putting tn circulation of any bill
of credit, bond, cbeck, ticket, certificate, pro
missory note, or other paper medium, intended
to circulate as money or currency.
Sec. 2. The General Assembly shall pro
hibit by law an person or persons, association,
company or corporation, now in existence,
from exercising tbe privilege of banking, or cre
ating, emitting or putting in circulation any
bank notes, or paper of any description what
ever, to circulate as' money or currency.
"Sec. 3. Tbe business of banking and
dealing in money sliall be free to all, subject
to such restrictions as may be provided by law:
but no special privileges or exemptions shall
ever Ve granted to those engaged in, or to
those who may hereafter be engaged in suca
bnsiness; nor shall any person or persons, eith
er natural or artificial, ever be allowed to deal
in or issue paper money, so railed.
JOHN LARWILL, Chairman.
Here it is, fellow-citizens ! Read it ! Pon
der it! Make up your minds, democrats, how
many of you are willing to stand on that platform.
The defeat of the compromise has
not long delayed the settlement, so
far as the Senate is concerned, of the
several questions involved in that
bill. The passage of the bills for the
settlement of the Texas boundary,
giving a territorial government to
New Mexico, and for the admission
of California, through the Senate,
cannot fail to cause emotions of joy
throughout the country. For near
ly nine months these have been the
only questions that have received the
serious considerations of that body"
These bills, as finally passed, may
not please all we know they do not
please the ultras at the South. The
bill fixing the boundary of Texas,
gives that State ten millions of dol
lars. To those who have no faith in
the claims of Texas to the territory
in dispute, this giving her a portion
of that territory with ten millions for
taking it, will hardly appear just.
But if this shall prove the last chap
ter of expense and trouble, which po
litical Abolitionism and Progressive
Democracy entailed on us in 1844
by electing. Polk, Texas, and the
Mexican war, with a national debt,
and a thousand elements of confusion
and disunion, all good and faithful
friends of the Union will respond a
From the spirit already shown in
the House, by the votes and speeches
of the rational members, we think
these bills will pass that body and re
ceive the signature of the President
We see no reason why the House
should not act upon them at once.

Another Member of the Convention Resigned. Locofocos in Office.
The Washington correspondent of
the Baltimore Patriot, speaking of
the probable removal of Locofocos
by the new cabinet, says of the on
cer under the Postmaster General:
His first assistant Postmaster Gen-
ral is a'Locofoco, with a Locofoco
chief clerk. His third assistant Post
master General is a Locofoco, with
a Locofoco chief clerk. His second
assistant Postmaster General has
Locofoco -for his chief clerk; and the
chief clerk of the Post Office Depart
ment is a Locofoco.
Thus stands the account among
the chief officers of a single depart
ment. From this some opinion may
be formed of the rest. Yet the Lo
cofoco press howl proscription! pio-
scription! Who believes that, were
things reversed, these officers would
remain? They would not have been
allowed to remain twenty-four hours
after they had the power to dismiss
them. We believe, with the writer,
that these old stagers should give
place to Whigs equally worthy and
In Chicago, the cholera has raged
with great violence (or several weeks,

healthy throughout the summer so

The Gazette says that the first re

was made July 1st. From their re

13th, there had been 851 deaths by

Melancholy Accident. An acci
dent of a most melancholy and distres
sing character occurred on the after
noon of the 1 5th instant, at Linfield.
Mass., involving the lives of fourteen
persons, all women and children, most
of them connected with the First Chris
tian Society of Lynn, went to Linfield
on a pic-nic. The party chose a de
lightful spot on the border of a beauti
ful pond. About 2 o'clock, a party of j
25 went on a large flat-bottomed row
boat for an excursion on the pond, and,
when about one hundred yards out from
shore, the boat capsized and fourteen
were drowned. The accident has
thrown the community of Linn into
the deepest distress.

the State Agricultural Fair, which
was to have been holden on the 11th,
12th and 13th of September next,

for the change in time is on account
of the epidemic that has been so pre

regulations are still rigidly kept up.

We learn from passengers that a
few da vs previous to their departure,
news was received that the British
Admiral on the station with the
British steamer Cormorant, had en
tered the port of Paraguay and
burned four Brazilian vessels. The
Captain of the Brazilian fort in port,
opened a fire upon the steamer and
killed one man. It was supposed
the Admiral was acting under orders
from home, for the suppression of
the slave trade. There was great
excitement at Rio in consequence,
and it was thought serious dimcnlty
would arise between the Brazilian
and British governments.

both of which were attenied with
frightful loss of life. The Sulimary,
Indiaman, was riding at anchor off
the coast, and encountered, on the
24th of May, a dreadful gale ol wind
in the height or which she parted
Irom her anchors, and was driven
ashore, when the splendid ship spee
dily became a complete wreck. An
attempt was made to save the pass
engers, ol whom there were several,

however, quickly destroyed by the
fury of the sea.and upwards of forty,
including the Captain, his wife and
thirty seamen perished. Another
Indiaman named theGuna, was driv

same time and became a wreck. The
crew of the vessel was more fortu
nate, they were all saved. The loss
of both vessels is said to exceed
50,000. The sad calamity to the
L Agile, happened on the 10th ol
