- The Apportionment Bat. We trust the
reader will preserve the apportionment bill
which we have published, for future refer
ence.. During the discussion upon the bill,
several Democrats declared that it was une
qual and unjust, that it could not be defend
ed before the people, and aether were unwil
ling to shoulder the responsibility, they voted
against it. We find in the Ohio State Jour
nal an article exposing its injustice and ine
quality, which we copy below, promising to
recur to the subject more in detail when we
find time and space. Says that paper, "the
bill has'ninc districts with a population ex
ceeding 100,000 and one of them exceeds the
ratio 16,394; and the average population in
those 9 districts is 105,256. The result of this
is that it gives to the other twelve districts
a representative for every 86,969 people
which makes a deficit in each district of 7,362
and 88,344 in the twelve equal to one Con
gressional district. For the purpose of giv
ing to 156,878 two representatives in Hamil
ton or one to 78,439, and to the Cuyahoga
district a representative to 80,583, and a few
other light districts these advantages, they
have been compelled to throw away in other
districts one entire ratio, and rob them of a
member of Congress. That some such ine
quality is unavoidable, is perfectly manifest.
But a districting which will give to 75,538
people in Hamilton county the same repre
sentation which is given to 110,680, as in
the 11th district, cannot be justified. The
difference in population is 35,142, and in
territory as twelve to ono. They may take
out of the 11th district, either Vinton or
Kocking, and It will still be over the ratio,
and may take out the largest county in it and
etil leave it ten thousand above the small
districts of the bill. Look also at the Ross
'district with its 106,783; the Franklin dis
trict with it 106,781; the Ashland district
with its H)7,395; the Knox district with its
The lowest vote relatively ever cast by the
Whig party in Ohio entitles it to nine Con
gressmen in the State upon a fuir apportion
ment. The bill gives it four without the
probability of another. If thpy district so
as to pile up the same democratic majorities
in the 17 democratic Districts of tho bill
which they accumulate in tho four Whig dis
tricts of the bill, tbey would have about 40,
000 clear Democratic majority in the State.
Then tho majority bill disregards all affin
ities in many instances, and such as have
been observed in this State from the begin
ning. As examples, it puts Erie with Rich
land, and Lorain with Wayne.
Kentucky Feelino. The Louisville Cour
' (er speaks plainly and pointedly in disapprov
al of the sectional course pursued by Mar
shall, the Whig member of Congress from
that district, in regard to General Scott, and
'thrusting Compromise resolutions upon tho
Whig Congressional caucus. It says:
"Col. Marshall's course meets with the almost
unanimous disapproval of his constituents.
They deprecate the agitation of tho slavery
question, and they arc grieved to see their rep
resentative doing as much as the veriest abo
litionist or Secessionist to create bad feeling
by renewing the discussion of a question al
ready settled, and which should be allowed to
rest It may be that Col. Marshall is right,
but if he is, every other Whig Congressman
from Kentucky, together with Senator Un
derwood, aro wrong, as they oppose his
11 New Penny Paper. We have received
the third number of a penny paper recently
established in Cincinnati, called the Daily
Sun, and resembling in energy and ability
its namesake of the Monumental city. It is
published every morning by Messrs. Stewart
Si McCormick. It is mailed to subscribers
at four dollars per year.
, OirThe Scioto Gazette very truly says that
the Whigs of Washington can find better
business than in fixing up platforms for the
Whig party. When they are asked to un
dertake the job it will be proper, but till that
time comes, their officiousness is very ob
noxious, and Is universally repudiated in
' ,,. Capital Punishment. In the Massachu
setts Senate on Monday, the Boston Courier
says, a bill was adopted virtually abolishing
capital punishment for murder, and actually
abolishing it on all othor crimes now punish
, -able by death, by such a vote that there can
' ' be no doubt that the bill will pass that branch
by a very largo majority. . .
' Whig Extravagancb The present Whig
Administration, since it came into power, has
paid off of the national debt a fraction under
tevenkm millions of dollars. The items" are
given from official sources in a lute admira
ble speech of Mr. Brooks, of New York, on
the Deficiency bill.
OirWhat will our honest democratic far
mers now say about the Chicken Tax? . Un
der the present, locofoco tax law, they will
be guilty of perjury, in a moral if not a legal
sense, if they do not return every fowl that

and from Southern ports of this coast, speak
of a large prospective immigration hither
ward, and official reports state, that 5000 may
be expected from Frunce during the coming
six months. There are now about 22,000
French residents in the country, and 8 to
10,000 Chinese. A statement of immigra
tion for four months, ending March 10th,
shows a balance of arrivals over departures,
(without counting the ovcrlande migrants
from New Mexico,) of 6,051, one half of
which arrivals reached the country during
the last five weeks of tho term.

Oregon Weather. The weather ."over
yonder" seems to be regulated this season by
the same clerk as down this way. The Or
egonian of March 3d says:
"The weather for the last week has aston
ished even that celebrated personage, the
"oldest inhabitant," by its unusual freaks of
rain, hail and snow, which has lullen at in
tervals, until the ground has become cover
ed with the "hoary appearance of winter,"
while the atmosphere continues moderate
and comfortable. The quantity of Bnow
that has fallen was quite unexpected, after
the fine spring weather which preceded it.
"The darkest hour preceduth day," so even
spring is "knocking at the door, albeit muf
fled in the icy storm."
Death of Prince Schwarzenberg. We
have already recorded the sudden decease, by
apoplexy, of Prime Schwarzenberg, the
celebrated Austrian Prince Minister, which
occurred on the 5th of A pril at Vienna. He
was the most eminent man in tho empire,
and has done more to strengthen it than any
other man living. Since Metternich's re
tirement, Schwarzenberg has been the soul
of the imperial government. Bold, courage
ous, and devoted to absolutism, he has been
the most efficient instrument in the destruc
tion of liberty on the continent of Europe.
He was the leader of the reactionary move
ment that commenced in 1848, and it is to
his counsels, backed, as they were, by Rus
sia, that the defeat of Hungary is to be at
tributed. His death wUl provo a terrible
blow to the House of Hupsburg. The fol
lowing not very complimentary record is
made of his life:
'"Prince Felix Schwarzenberg was born
on the 2d of October, 1800. In early life
he evinced in social life the unscrupulous
libertinism that was afterwards evinced in
his political career. In London he seduced
and eloped with a lady of rank, for which he
was prosecuted, and, failing to pny the dam
ages decreed, was declared an outlaw. Af
terwards, in Naples, he continued his career
of criminal galuntry, for which, in ono in
stance, he was severely chastised by an in
jured husband. He served under Radetzky
in 1818, and was in November of that year
made Prime Minister, an office he filled till
his death. In every relation private and
public, he has been a man of intrigue, with
the boldness to venture every thing in pur
suit of an object, and the skill to accomplish
all he undertook. He will live long in the
memory of all, for his vices, and his cruel
ties, and the bold, energetic courago which
he displayed ill their exercise.
Isthmus Railroad Stock. The New
York Express says:
"We observe a demand for Panama Rail
road stock for which 104 is offered and whicll
was not to he had at that price. This stock,
not a very long time since, was heavy at 70
per cent, and could hardly be sold. The
stocks of these companies owning the routes
between the two oceans and leading towards
California improved and are improving in
price. Nicaragua, which sold in February
last at $-0 per share now readily commands
44, and has sold as high as 50 dollars."
The Use of TonAcco. Tobacco has
spoiled and utterly ruined thousand of boys,
inducing a dangerous precocity, developing
the passons, softening and weakening the
bones, and injuring tho spinal marrow, the
whole nervous fluid. A boy who early and
freoly smokes, or otherwise largely uses to
bacco, never is known to make a man of
much energy. To people oldor, who are
naturally nervous, ttiid particular to the
phlegmatic, tobacco may be comparitively
harmless, but even to these it is worse than
Minnesota Weather. The past winter
was a severe one up about St. Pauls, and
March had a few stingers. A record of the
weather for March kept at St. Pauls shows
that the morning of the 17th tho mercury
was 2 below 0, tho 18th, 8 below 0, and
the 1 0th, at 0. The Mississippi closed with
ice Nov. 27th, and broko up March 27th,
furnishing a safe and sound ice bridge for
four months. Ice iirLako Pepin obstructed
navigation of the river up to April 15th when
boats worked through.
Narrow Escape. A family consisting of
thirteen persons, living near Mr. ilewey's
Wire Factory, seeinsr the stack of that fac
tory leaning from tho effects of the flood,
left their house on Wednesday in a skill.
They had but just got seated in the skiff
when the stack fell and struck within about
three feet of them, upsetting the skiff, and
leaving them to the mercy of the waters.
They were all rescued in an exhausted state
oven to tho babe which the mother's
arm had instinctively clung to through the
whole trial. Wheeling Times.

Rensselear is reported to have died at Al

A Hard Hit. Mr. , a newly elected
township assessor, was summoned to attend
court as a petit juror. Being anxious to com
mence the discharge of the duties of his of
fice, he applied-to tho court to be excused
from serving on the jury. "Certainly," re
plied judge 11., "we will excuse vou. Anv
man who would accept the office of assessor
under the new tux law is unfit to serve upon
a jury. You can go." Xenia Torek Light.

You do not now look men in the face as if
a heart bond was linking you as if a com

heart bond that absorbs all other; there is a
community that monopolizes your feeling.
When the heart luy wide open, before it had
grown upon and closed around particular ob

And now those particular objects alas

He asks you a single question about the

The wife of Michael Catt.a resident of Deck
er township, in Indiana, was shot on Mon
day of last week by her son-in-law, a Mr.
Young, to whom she approached disguised as
an apparition. Mr. Young had been previ
ously conversing about the spiritual rappings,
ghosts, &c, and it is probable was much ex
cited on supernatural subjects at the time.
Mrs. C, in a mood of merriment, showed
herself to him, when ho seized his gun and
fired at her. The ball passed through her
neck, and occasioned death in a short time.
