there is a continuous air cur

centrifugal lorce generated by
the revolution ol Ihe earth on

The Farmers' Convention.
The Convention which met last
Saturday, in this citv.was a decid
ed 8ucce8s,b jth as to the numbers
in attendance, and as to the
character of the resolutions
adopted. Of the regular reso
lutions, we need only say that
hey are cler and terse, and are
expressed in no equivocal lan
We have watched the progress
oi tno farmers movement with
interest. Thus far it has been
conducted with great prudence
ana wisdom, in all the resolu
tions we have seen, which hare
thus far been adopted, in various
places we find nothing but a
temperate and dignified deman
for just and equitable relief for
the farmers of the nation. An
effort has been made to create a
prejudice against this movement
by chargirg that it is intended
to advance the interests of the
farmers at the expense of al
other clussea. The charge is
wholly unfounded. The farmers
only demand equal rights for all
and special privileges for none
Ihe resolutions adopted on
Saturday are to be laid before
the Constitutional Convention.
We hope that that body will en
graft such provisions into the
tundamental law as will render
the existence of oppressive mo
nopolies in Ohio on impossibility,
vve say, therefore, that, judg'
ing the Farmers' movements by
its avowed principles, it BhouU
receive the unanimous support
ot all good citizens. The inter
csts of all classes in tho body
poiitio aro so mutually related
that whatever promotes the real
ntercsts of any one class, at the
samo time benefits every other
class, ihe increased prosperity
ot the farmers will insure better
wages to the mechanic, the farm
nana ana the laborers in every
department of industry. The
movement being simply intended
to secure equal rights to all,
commends itself to us as worthy
of the unreserved support of all.

For a short, sharp and plain
dealing way of accumulating
property, commend us to tbe
ingenious gentleman who, ac
cording to tbe newspapers, has
flourished and grown fat on
the profits of his cat, derived
in this 6imple and ingenious
fashion: The gentleman sup
ported his family in handsome
tyle and accumulated depos-
sin the savings bank, by situ
ly tying an abled bodied cat
by the tail to a clothes line,
and then going out in the
morning to collect the soap,
firewood, brushes, old sauce

ers in adjoining houses.

Young Man, coolly. Well,
I don't propose to do anything

11. M. S. iu the Marietta
Register, sys he lately came
across an advertisement in the
Alexandria (Va.) Gazette, of
eb. 20, 1796, signed by "Geo.
Washington," offering for let or
sale his landed estates. His
entire estate contained over
50,000 acres. On the Ohio Riv
er between Wheeling and the
Great Kanawha River he own
ed 9,744 acres, having a river
front of over 15 miles. On the
Kanawha he owned four tracts,
containing 23,296 acres, and
having a river lrontage of over
41 miles. The two largest
of the tracts were within a lew
miles ot the confluence of the
Kanawha with the Ohio River.
The first is described as on the
west bide of the river, begin
ning within 2 or 3 miles of its
mouth, "6 or 8 miles from Gal
lipolis," and containing 10,090
acres, with 17 miles river front
age. The second tract was on
east side of the river, a little
higher up, 12 miles river lront
age, and contained 7,293 acres.
The other two tracts were near
Cole River. lie also had land
in Kentucky and in Ilamilton
county, Ohio. All of these
lands were the best in their
several sections, and have since
become the homes of an enter
prising and wealthy people,
thus showing, that in land mat
ters, as well as in the greater
duties of establishing a free
government, Gen. Wu6hibglou
was thoughtful and wise.
