In announcing this call 'we deem
it not inappropriato to add a word
on tlio importance of tlio approach
ing Convention. The success of the
ticket to bo nominated depends, in
h very great degreo, upon the men
to be put in nomination tind the
harmony and unanimity of the
nominations. To this ond it ia de
sirable and important that every
county should bo fully represented,
iindtho will of s people should be
ascertained and expressed as nearly
as possible. Tlio election will bo
ono of vital importance to tho Stato
und country at largo, and will have
an important influonco upon tho
great contest of 1 872. With a judi
cious selection, of candidates and a
harmonious and united effort . tin
Democracy can and will redeem the
Stato from Radical misrule, ' und
answer back to tho East South and
West, the glorious news that Ohio is
truo to the Constitution nnd Union.

Adjournment of the Legislature.
Ohio Legislature ad
journed on the 2d inst., without
day. Let every citizen rejoice
at the delivery of the State.
Absenteeism and general worth
lessness were its prominent fea
tures. Not that there were
not gentlemen of ability in both
branches, who had the capaci
fy'and inclination to push bu
siness, Wid at tho same time do
it wellJjut that the main were
triflers and unfitted , for tho bu
siness which they were elected
to perform will not, we believe,
be disputed by any body.
What has been done during
the session of four months will
be made manifest 60 soon as
the clerks can make up the
record. We hope not to wit
ness just such another body.
After considerable angling,
quarreling and discussion, the
General Appropriation Bill
which hung fire so long in the
Senate, in consequence of the
advocates f tho payment of
the Morgan -Raid claims',.1 en
deavoring to have them inser
ted in the Appropriation Bill,
was fiually passed minus the
claims of tho Morgan Raiders.
So the people of Vinton county
can see that there is not much
of a prospect of the Morgan
Kaid claims being passed soon.
Among the laws passed was
one to prevent cruelty to ani
mals, which will commend it
self to all humane pooplo. It
U designed to prevent over
driving, overworking, overloading',-
torturing or impound
ing!' yarding the same, for a
longer period than twelve
hours, without a sufficient sup
ply of food or water.' ' Also to
provide for . the proper dispo
sition of poor and "worn out an
imaw turned into streets or
highways, &c.,t inflicting fines
for the violation of tho provis
ions of the law, ranging from
five to fifty dollars.

Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad
Connection.
We .have written so much
upon this subject, that we are
pleased to publish the views of
any any other part7, and there
fore cheerfully give place to
Mr. Langley's letter.
"What Mr. L. says of the
route ho defines is undoubtedly
correct, and we aro ready just
as soon as it can be brought
under a vigorous and strong
organization, to give it our
best support. '
Hitherto we have advoca
ted no special route for this
connection (though three or
four have been presented) be
cause they are all good .lines,
and unfortunately ;all in about
the same stagnant condition.
The Ilillsboro route has been
kept before our people, and we
have ' therefore 'spoken1 most
about it. AVe are for the line
that shall be the first vitalized,
and if Mr. Langley's route be
comes that one, we shall sup
port it with all our might and

Editors Jlailroad Record:
Gentlemen : I notice fre
quent remarks in the Record
in regard to a connection , of
your city with the Chesapeake
aud Ohio road by rail, at dif
ferent points, and by different
routes, but have seen but little,
if " anything in' ' regard "to"" a
route through this place, which
is undoubtedly the shortest
route by which that company
can reach your city from the
mouth of; Scary on; Kanawha
river,' front: which poit t they
start to - reach Catlettsburg ;
thence, I understand, they- pro-,
pose to run through. .Kentucky
and on to Memphis, and possi

Mr. Huntington of Guyandotte,
last, week. and he.gtivp; nie all
the encouragement for I' a ! con
nection with their road at this
point that we could reasonably
expect in the' present, situation
of our enterprise. ..',' He says
they want to reach Memphis
thiough "Kentucky arid" also
want to reach your city and St.
Louis, and also through the in
terior of our State to the north
west via mouth of Kanawha, at
this point. Would not this be
their best point for crossing the
river, and from her.e reaching
Columbus and the lakes via our
road aud your city via the
Ilillsboro line, the first 10 to
15 or 20 miles from here run
ning over the same track?
It would certainly be the short
est route by many miles, and
cost much less money to con
struct the road, furnish more
business, and not have the com-
Eetition they would necessarily
ave on the river line, espec
ially for heavy freights. And
to become ' a link in a great
through road like the Chesa
peake and Ohio, the road
should be as short as practica
ble, and the shorter between
given points, the less curvature
there would be, consequently
the faster they could run.
I will take the liberty of
sending you a report of 0. B.
Shaw, O.E.(of 1852,) in which
you may find some facts of in
terest.' ; You will find on the
first and second pages his re
marks on the route from here
to Symmes creek, at a point
about where Mr. Trimble now
strikes it, with his Symmes
creek survey ; but I think we
will get a practicable route by
the present Survey to that
point from 1 to 3 miles shorter
than he makes, via the Ilodney
route he speaks of in his report.
1 I have always thought, and
yet think that to your city, the
Ilillsboro road would be al
most invaluable, if run into the
mineral belt of southern Ohio,
to a connection with our road
that will run 4.0 or 45 miles
continuously - through beds of
coal, . in the aggregato : 12 to 2)
or 25 feet thick, and ,beda , of
irou ore from 6 to 7, 10 and 12
feet thick in the aggregate, or
to a connection with r another
road running in same direction;
or if it was' extended itself
through: these ; minerals beds,
to havo such a road and such a
connection' ft)id j also a conuec-
I tion through this end of our
road with the Chesapeake and
Ohio road, would certainly be
a great gain and advantage to
your city. Wo alsowant a
connection t hrough ; the Ilills-
boi'Q road witlii your 'city, but
do notexpect the city .to aid us
to the'extcnt Df a dime (though
any aid wpuldibe thankful " re
ceived), but if they would unite
and vhelp;'put' tho 'Ilillsboro
road through to reach 'our route;
and "you say as much ns-the
merit of the route will ; justify
you in saying,. it will doubtless
be' af powerful 'lever1 with the"
