GEN. W INFIELD SCOTT
The first Fair of iho Meigs County Agri
cultural Socie ty was held on Wednesday the
1 22d. in Middlrport. We regard ihis as an
important era in iho history of farming in
our county. It is a movement in the right
direction, and though the articles presented
were not numerous, or remarkable for their
excellence, it will have an important bearing
upon the interests of Agriculture and labor
uenerallv. It will awaken interest to the
subject, and that is the first step to improve
inent. But it will do more. It wil lead to
active effort to contribute something another
vearthat will far surpass anytnine that was
nrpsented this. Many were deterred from
offering articles of real value and excel
lence by the fear that thoy might be so far
outdone that they would be ashamed of the
contributions. They will to better able to
judge of the comparative merits ol their
own articles hereafter. No one should be
deterred from contributing something to the
exhibition, from iho fear of being surpassed,
or of not obtaining a premium. The true
value of such exhibition does not consist in
the amount of prumium obtained, but on
the thoughts which it awakens, the gener
ous rivalries which it excites, and the conse
quent improvements wnich will result from
it. If every farmer and mechanic would
resolve to present something worthy of ex
hibition another year, and would endeavor
to mako it as perfect in its kind as possible,
they would be richly rewarded, and they
would afford abundant evidence that all the
weahh and capabilities of Meigs county do ;a
lie buried beneath her sandstone.
Tho number of persons in attendance,
was, we believe, much larger than was ex
prcted, which shows that there has been an
interest awakened in the subject which wil!
produce important results.
The address by Mr. Norton was listened
to with deep interest by a large and intelli
gent audience, and was worthy of the sub
ject and the occasion. It was mainly occu
pied with a clear and able exposition of
those general principles which lie at the
foundation of all real progress, and with
some pructical suggestions, which are well
worthy of the careful consideration ofthe
farmers of Meigs. We are unable to give
en abstract of it, which will convey a correct
idea of the many valuable truths and beauti
ful illustrations which it contained.
After the address tho crowd dispersed to
examine the various articles and animals
presented fur exhibition. A description of
these we must leave to other hands. Every
thing, we believe passed off in a satisfactory
manner, and its influence will be beneficial
not only to the members of the Society, but
to the general interests of labor and produc
tion in our county.
A HIS A rPK KU ENHION.
The newspapers have circulated the re
port that tho persons who were concerned
in the Syracuse riot ease were arrested and
examined on the chargu of treason, and
that the United States officers -had received
instructions from Washington to have them
indicted for treason. It turns out that all
this i a mistake. No such orders were ev
er given, or were any of the persons arrest
ed charged with treason. They are un
doubtedly guilty of misdemeanor and liable
to punishment. This is the only charge
We clip tho following from tho Cleveland
Tab Pbesiuent and tub Laws. The
Washington Republic of the 16th contra
dicts the report which appeared a few days
naoin the IN. Y. Herald, statins that the
President had instructed the District Allor
ney ol New York to prosecute the parties of
the Syracuse outrage for treason. 1 he Ke
public truly says that it is the duty of the Pres
ident to detine tho nature ui toe crime.
Since penning the above, based upon tel
egraphic report, the Republic ol the loth
has come to hand. It sav "The instruc
ttons referred to did not undertake to define
the legal nature of the offences committed nt
Syracuse or Christiana, lhey were expli
cil and distinct to the point, that all infrac
tions that had been commuted ol the laws ol
the United States must be prosecuted with
the utmost diligence; b it it was no part of
the President s duty to indicate the legal
character of the outrages in question, or to
direct the district attorney or the grand jury
in the discharge of their respective func
"And while on this subject we may as well
correct another misapprehension with regard
to the duties of the President. We see the
question gravely asked how it is that the
President will busy himself about the viola
tions of the law at Syracuse and Christiana,
when he takes no notice of the execiV.ions
urder Lynch law in San Francisco.' or of
mobs in North Carolina and Alabama, or
of the outrage of the Spanish Consul in N.
urieans. Many other cases michi be cited
to illustrate the position taken by the gentle
men who ask these Questions: Questions
hich aft sometimes put from pure inno
cence and ignorance, and sometimes from
uro mischief and a desire to find fault with
"The President is sworn to execute the
aw& of the United Slates, and those only.
f men commit murders, or stimulate mobs,
or burn houses, or commit any other acts of
lolenco winch do not come within the
aws of the United States, the President has
as much to do with them as any other indi
vidual, and no more. The illegal execu
tions at Son Francisco, the anti-Rent mur-
ers, the infamous outrages on the Spanish
Consul at New Urieans, all these matters
are of Stute or municipal cognizance, of
fences ugainst the local laws, with which the
federal (jovernmeni, and of course the
President, can have no control. There is a
ifficulty in muking the peculiarities of our
Government intelligible oven to well educa
ted foreigners, but we are surprised that any
American citizen should fail to recognize
the distinctions to which we have adverted."

THE VALLEY OP THE UES MOINES
We find the following paragraph in a
late number of the Butlington (Iowa) Tele
Iowa Coal Field. Dr. Owen, the Geol
ogist, who surveyed this State by order of
the United btatcs (Jovernment, 6taiea be
fore the American Scientific Association,
in reference to the deposits of Iowa, that
"Uutween Johnson and Iowa counties an
uplift of carboniferous sandstone is encoun
tered, which is probably near the eastern
imits of the Ues Moines coal field. The
Iowa river meanders near the eastern mar
gin of thiscoal field, but the suams present
ed on the river are of interior quality. I
is upwards of two hundred miles in the di
rection of tho valley of the Des Moines
across the great coal fields. Westwardly it
extends from the Ues Moines river nearly
across the btate ol Iowa. I no enure area
of this coal field in Iowa alone cannot be
less than twenty thousand square miles,
ull embracing n country nearly equal
extent to tho State of Indiana.
He estimates the beds of coal to be one
hundred feel in thickness, and lying near
the surface, tliey must be capable of being
worked easily and at small expense.
i he lies Moines river which, as we
gather Irom the above paragraph, passes
almost centrally through tho great coal held
spoken of also divides the State into two
nearly equal parts. It passes diagonally
Irom northwest to southwest through Iowa
and reaches tho Mississippi near Keokuk
in the southwest corner of the State the
whole distance, from the point at which
strikes the northern boundary line of Iowa
to its junction with tho Mississippi, being
over lour hundred miles.
It is this river De Moines, reprcnted as
being one of the most beautiful of all the
noble rivers of tho Great West, that the
young Siutu of Iowa has undertaken, wit
the aid of a gram of lands made by Con
gress, to render navigable for steamboats of
a good class up to tort Des Moines a dis
lance of over 200 miles from its mouth.
Tho stream is suid lobe peculiarly adapted

State a succession ol substantial and ex
pensive locks and dams to create slack w a

The great importance of this work
Iowa cannot fail to bo seen at a glance
from the fuels above stated; and we observe,
accordingly, that it is a subject of much re'
mark in the papers of that state. It is Hit
work in connection with which Mr. Van
Antwerp, tliti commissioner of public works
of the State, has been here during some
weeks past his object being to get a settle
ment of the question in regard lo iho ex
lent of tho Congressional grant, involving
a largo amount ol' the public lands.

Senate, owing to the debilitated condition
of his health. The . Louisville Courier of
the lOth.says" we can assure the numerous
friends of Mr. Clay throughout the country
that all such anouncements, to say the least
of thorn, are premature. , Mr' Clay's health
is gradualy improving, and a cough thai he
has found troublesome through the snmmer
has nearly left him. There is now no rea
son for snpposing thai Mr. Clay will not be
in VVashington at the organization of Con

his friends, is, that he will enjoy full as good
health at tho metropolis as ai home. The
country may therefore feel confident of
reaping the advantages of his experience
and wise councels during the approachirg

(7- A Temperance Society, on iho plan
of the Society , of Sons of Temperance in
ihe United States, is about being established
in Paris. It is the first ihut has ever boen
attempted, and in fact the French, though
they have heard of Temperance Societies,
have never had the slightest idea what it
meant. The use of wino is so universal

ists, to resist by force ihe execution of the

in all probability, result in a general move
