Messrs. Trimble and Fallis, Directors of
the Hillsborough Railroad Company, accom
panied by Mr. Ellwood Morris, their con
suiting Engineer, visited our town a fef
days since. .
Th -se ' gentlemen are exploriug a route
for the Baltimore Railroad, across Southern
Ohio, and have found a favorable line from
Bainbridgn in Ros county, running ncur
Waverly, Jackson, Vinton, Rutland, &c.
and. ascending the vall-y of Thomas' Fork,
which runs parallel to the Ohio river, about
two miles north of this place.
' By this route the waters of Shade rivet
re reached with great fuci'iiy, while a good
opportunity is afforded of striking' Pomeroy
by ehort side line, nnd thus accommodating
the business of that remarkable throng of
villages of which our town forms ihe busi
ness centre. -
This great enterprise is pregnant with im
portant results to the business interests of
our town, and well di-ssrves the earnest at
tention of our people
rTbis morning, (Monday,) the River
is cloard with ice, the ground covered with
snow, and the sleigh bells are jingling mer
rily through our streets. Winter in all his
glory is upon us. We hope, however, thai
he will not tarry long with us. -

We ask the attention of the People
of Pomeroy to the card of the Presbyterian

EDITOR'S TABLE.
Graham's Magazine, for January, it tru
ly one of iho most splendid specimens of
Magazine publishing we ever saw. It is a
double number, and is embellished with a
lavish profusion perfectly astonishing.
Gmham has always been our favorite Maga
zineand since Mr. Graham has resumed
the editorial control its history' 'has been
one of continued improvement. It opens the
new year with increased patronage and addi
tional excellence. The best of American
writers contribute to its columns, and the
coming volume will be enriched by an ori
ginal novel by G. P. R. James, Esq., the
celebraud English novelist. Not the least
p'cas'mg feature is a continuation of Her
ben's inimitable Sporting Sketches, which
are alone worth the price of subscription.
I erms: 53 per annum; iwo copies for
; or one copy of Graham and one cony
of tho Telegraph' for 83.50. Address Geo.
R. Graham, Philadelphia,,
0$- Godcy's Book, for January, is before
us, and ii is enough to say that, as a Lady's
Book, it is alone. Mr. Godey has been
over twenty years connected with this
"Book," and it is but reasonable to suppose
that his experience in thai timo has placed
tim at the head of his calling. The widely
extended fame of this favorite work is the
best evidence of its intrinsic merit. He
promises that the succeeding issues shall
surpass all predecessors; and Godey has i
faculty of keeping promises that few pos
sees, vv e Know of no more welcome pre
sent to n young or unvounc nurdon the
word lad), than a year's subscription to
Godev. The terms are $3 per annum; two
copies for $5; or Godey and the Telegraph
for $3 50.
0 Sartain's Magazine, for January
is also on our table. This publication is
unique in its charactor, being a journal o
Ar. and Literature combined, interspersed
w'nh the grave and gay, forming a medley
of entertainment suited to all classes. John
Sartain, the eminent Artist, has assumed
-i ...... . ...
tne editorial cnair, irom which we augur
great improvement. There is a new feature
in this Magazine -"Puck's Port Folio''
which adds greatly to its zest, and gives
un interest no other Magazine possesses
We are glad to know that its prospects are
bright and brighining. Terms, $3 per an
numj two copies for $5; or Sartain and the
Telegraph for 53 50. Address John SaB'
tain, Philadelphia.
Executions in Virginia. The three
slaves who wcro concerned in the late trag
edy in Grayson county, Va., in which Ba
con, the white abolitionist from Ohio figured
were executed on the 31st ull., in the pres
ence of un immense concourse of people
who were greatly exasperated against Bacon
The Wythville Republican says he will no
doubt be a victim to lynch law if caught.
03r I is said that KoFSuth, having bee
consigned to imprisonment for three jears
for disobeying the cdicis of the Austrian
Government, -he applied, at the end of one
year, for the use of books. , Be was cfJdred
ihe choice of one, provided it was not of a
political character, lie usked for three.
The request was granted, and ho selected
the English Grammar, Walker's Pronoun
cing Dictionary, and Shakspearo. By at
lentive study of these three volumes, he
mastered ihu English language before the
term ofhis imprisonment expired.
Another Discover v of Gold. A letter
frwm Santa Fe, dated 29th October, men
tions ihe discovery of rich gold diggint on
the heud waters of the Gila- i Much excite
mem was created ai:d people from every di
rection were flocking forward. It ia well
known that very rich mines H ere extensively
worked in those regions long y ears since
and towns built up in their vuiniiy by the
Mexican miners, who finally were massacred
and driven away by the Indians.

of voyages and travels, no less than in its

as they can conveniently give such aid as
consistent with the principles and post

sentiments and assurances wnich find ex
pression in join addresses I can take for a
previ ux boon, that, when I go to Bultimorc,
will hnd the practical spirit of its citizens
ready to be, in an efficient manner, as good
as their words. (Laughter.) This is mv
hope and my wish. I ant not egotistical. I
seek nothing for myself, but for my coun
