COMMUNICATED. [For the Conservative. ]
Mr. Editor : 1'csmit me, through the me
diuinof your conservative journal, to call
public attention to greater activity In regard,
to the present arid prospective Interests ol our
citizens In the Muskingum valley. And al n
preliminary to tho performance of this sell-'
imposed task, I wish It appeal earnestly t"
the great ma of rur citizens, ftho aie eo
deeply interested, that they discoid at once
that s'tipenduons fallacy, which now seems to
pervade the public mind, nnmely, that tl.eir
paramount public duty is to assist in working
the political aud pnrtiwn ninchin-ry by meuns
of which tho oflieial "hmves r,nd Odies" are
dispond ol.
As 1 have tu'.A, on a r i tn--r occasion, I now
repeat that the Mo Vinguin Improvement,
constructed slid kept iu repair in nccindmte
with tho original design. , has in tho past sub
served and und inbleillf would In the inline

interests connected with tbm-e of agriculture,

But if il should be tho policy of the State

Hfeeiitted, and then il the Slate should desire
(lupoid of it she ear. do so upon eueh - con
ditions as will secure its preservation and
perpetuate Us advantages to the public.
Aud l'.eie I will lake leuvo to suggest that
among other possible plans by which these
importuut ends muy be secured, (here m.iy
iniido sume equilublo urriingi'incnl between tho
Statu and tho three counties through which

a controlling interest in thu Ohio Central,
may, in view of tho business to be thus secured
,o their several rouds, become the owner and
adopt the Muskingum Improvement as aa in
tersectiug lino between PurkersTjurg and
Zauesvillo uud, thereby, secure to themselves
the import and export business of this vulley.
Other ruilroads.-wliicU htcrsect this valley,
are each and all more or less interested in th
preservation of this woik.
Iu any ovent, our citizens should see to
that this patient of theirs ahull nut bo placed
in tho bauds of un unlriendiy nurse, uud that
uuy measure, which publio uuthorlly nmv
adopt, having in view the abandonment
