Thursday Evening, May 90. lM
flow is theTimb. We care but littlo,
ays the Toledo Blade, , in what form the
Whigs perfect their party" organisation for
the approaching campaign in Ohid. ' It is
quite evident, whoever is the candidate,
Fillmore, Scott or Webster, it will be an
.active; one. The timo has come when the
pent up spirit, which has been prematurely
enkindled by the imbecility and party knave
Vy of the Legislature, should asiumo a tan
gible shape. Whigs least, should begin
to understand each othor to rally to con
Vert to preach the truth. There never was
a time . in Ohio when materials were more
numorous-r-when tho abominations of Loco
focoism were more glaring when its per.
nicious influences were more severely felt
or when its interests were confided to the
keeping of leaders at once, so weak and cor
rupt. " The people are anxious to join in an :
enthusiastic campaign.' Public sentiment is
ready for an insurrection among the honest,
sober minded Democracy. They feel they
have been gulled, and are moro eager, if pos
sible, than the Whigs to show it. We need
nothing stronger to rally upon than the
broad and open ground of opposition to tho
legislation of the past session. It is enough.
. It exhibits at a glance, corruption and knave
ry enough to destroy any party which prom
ises to perpetuate such evils. Let us at once
: begin the work. -
.' The Depth, of Meanness. Tho Ports
mouth Tribune y Clipper says: "At o re
- cent visit to the Infirmary of this county, we
learned that an aged and infirm old gentle
man was one of its inmates, who has a wife
' and two sons living In this city. These two
Sons are able bodied men, and aro amply a
, ble to provide for their father's Wants and
- place him in comfortable circumstances, and
every consideration of jusiice and humanity
calls upon them loudly to take him to their
homes, aud not permit him to live out his last
days at a place where ho cannot receive that
attention an Infirm old man should receive,"
A Huge Animal. The Washington (Tex
as) Star says tho tnskf a tooth and a portion
of the leg bone of a huge animal, were dis
covered embedded in the sand at Hidalgo
Falls.by some gentlemen on a fishing ex-
cursion, a few days sinco. The tusk is ten
feet long, ana measures at its greatest cir
cumferance twenty-three inches.
' Railroad Materials. The steamer Pat
rickplenry.on her recent trip from New Or
leans, brought up and landed in Alton, 1,500
nieces railroad irort, seventy-six pair of car
wheels, and one hundred and eight packages
of material for railroad cars, xney aro
. tended for the Alton and Springfield Rail
road. '- ' ' , t. ''
Carpets aro now manufactured in large
quantities, both in England and the United
Statesthe figure of which aro stamped, not
' woven." These are produced by a pressure of
five hundred tons on each block or stamp.
' The carpets are very beautiful, but do not
wear well. '.
The Corn. The nrookvillo, (Ind.) Dem
ocrat says, that many of the farmers in that
vuinity are complaining that their corn does
- not come up well. Some say they will have
to replant two-thirds of their ground. Tho
, cause of this is difficult to tell. .
Mobmoss A party of fifty Mormons nr-
rived at Bf. , Louis on the 10th inst., bound
for the Salt Lake. They brought with them
. from England several hydraulic presses with
which they intend working the salt springs
in that locality. " , .
A Long Train The Buffalo Commercial
.Advertiser says'that tho longest train of
passenger cars that ever passed over tne
Rochester and Buffalo railroad, reached that
' city a day or two since. It consisted of thirty-six
cars, filled with emigrant passengers.
The McDonocgh Estate. Tho Supreme
Court has determined, so says a despatch
from New Orleans, to render, judgment iu
this case, in favor of tho cities of Now Or-1
leans and Baltimore and against the States
of Louisiana and Maryland.
'' A Fumy Shower. The Pittsburgh Dis
patch ay that during therecct parade of
the "City Blues'" of Steubenville,,,eggs fell
as large bb hail-stones." What a stampede
there must have.becn among the soldiers.
A Cabqo of Powoeb. Some 3,458 kegs,
811 half kegs, 634 quarter kegs, and 134
boxes 6f powder, were received at St. Louis,
on the 10th inst., by tho steamer John Mor
rlsett, from New Orleans., . .
The FRViT.--The Steubenvllle Herald ia
- Informed by farmers in that vicinity thattne
prospects for fruit, apples in particular, were
never better. -' 1 -- '
:CALiroBRU Emiobabts. The St. Joseph
Adventure has the following item:
"A gentleman writing to us from Salt
Lake City, says: 'you will confer a favor on
California emigrants, by advising them to
procure all the tobacco they may want, be
fore leaving the States, as it is iinposiible
to procure any at this place' .
Wirb Measure. Three spoonsful of bran

tiary one visit to the penitentiary a step to
the gallows,. - Cut this out and, .paste, it jn

So Like Ohio Locofocihbii. In an ankle
upon the decision of the New York Court or
Appeals, declaring the Canal Enlargement
Law unconstitutional, the New York VVi
bune has the following: '
"Far be it from us to impugn a decision of
the highest Court of our Statu as dinhouest;
. . I-.;.. -e .!
but we nave a rigm iu cuiiijhuiu oi uik um
honorablu duplicity and hypocrixy by whii'li
the people wore dupod into tho election of
our present Canal Board, supposing that the
Canal Enlargement under tue act oi jbsi
was already secured. If that act Is Jiow un
constitutional, it was so in 1851 as much as
It is now. If there was arty reason for con
testing it on this ground, that reason existed
before the last election as fully as it now
does. But the Locofoco State Convention
of last Fall recoenizedthe Canal law as viilid
and to be carried into effect; they asked tho
people to entrust them with its execution on
tho assurance that they would do it mofr. ef
ficiently and economically than the Whigs;
end their candidates placarded the whole
line of the Canal with their pledges that they
would fcithfully uphold and execute tho Law.
By the influence of these pledges they were
elocted, carryingwith them ono oftho Judges
who now unites in annulling the law!" ,
How much that sounds like Ohio Loeofo
coism in the same year. Entrust tlie leudcrs
of that party with putting the new Constitu
tion into operation, and they would do it more
efficiently than the Whigs. And how like
the results. The people of New York are
for tho present deprived of tho benefits of
the law; the provisions of the new Constitu
tion "in Ohio, whorover they interfered with
tho desires or profits of its "friends," , have
been practically nullified. Wo think, by
this time, tho people of theso two: great
States ought to appreciate the promises of
the leaders of these two parties and pndct
stand the motives which induce them to ex
press so much sympathy arid affection for
the mnssos.
"It is a long lane that has no turu," nnd
we think tlie people of Ohio have learned
wisdom from tho proceedings of the past win
.ter. "The new Constitution in the hands
of its friends" has provod a farce, and the
tax-payers of Ohio so understand it. We
can scarcely find an honest Democrat of our
acquaintance vhoadoes no condemn the nets
of their leaders. They have been unwilling
witnesses of their frequent violations of the
Constitution; they can boo not necessity for
tho increased salaries of the ollice-holdersj
and.th'y will hesitato for somo time before
they again, trust the finances and prosperity
of tho State in the hands of such men. What
was promised, they know well, has not been
performed -and hereafter they will pay less
regard to thoso expressions of love and sym
pathy, which are made oDly to get power
and the spoils of office. Men like these, ac
tuated almost altogether by selfish motives,
are not the persons who ought to be entrust
ed with the management of Stute afl'uirs,
and wo predict that the voters if Ohio, as
well as New York, will not so readily apiin
placo coufidenco . in promises mado to be
broken. ' -

. Who M'ii-l it be! In ten days, Juno 1st,
the Democratic National Ccnvenliun will
assemble in Baltimore, to nominate for tiie
Presidency and Vico Presidency. A II is
still doubt us to who will be jiuined, for belli
offices. Should Cass get the nominatTon,for
President, which is hardly probable under the
two-thirds rulo, Gen. Bctler will ho on tho
ticket for Vice. The Washington corres
pondent of the Pittsburgh Gazette thus spec
ulates; Tho intrigues among tho Democratic as
pirants deepens and thickens as tho day of
decision approaches. It is understood that
Gen. Cnss has one hundred nnd ten delegates
secured in his favor as their choice, and
Buchanan about eighty. This leaves one
hundred and six who aro divided between
Judge Douglas, Gen. Butler, Gen. -Houston,
Gov. Marcy, &c, Stc. The uuchuiinn
strength Will go over to Houston soon after
tho first ballot; Gen: Cass will be dropped
on the fourth or fifth ballot.' Most of his
supporters will gn over to Douglas, but some
to Rusk. Then will commence the scram
ble among the outsiders, Dickinson, Wool,
Lane, Bill Allen, and a host ot tried and
true soldiers but who havo not hitherto
shone in the first rank; will enter the ring.
There will be intense and indescribable noise
and confusion, tho end of which no mnn can
fortell. - ' -
Awfl't Death. A , most heart-rending
casualty occurred at Canhlcn, N. J., on Sat-
unlay week. A young mnn named John
Malonp, "ngaged in tho distillery of a Mr.
Woodruff, was sent to clean something in a
vat or cistern which was -.nearly or quite
liulf full of boiling water. He had placed a
board'across the cistern, and was busily cm-'
ployed at his task, . when a colored man,
named folk, stepped upon the board, which
under the pressure of his weight, gave way,
and precipitated both into tho reservoir' of
boiling water. Tho colored man caught hold
of tho top of the vt and escaped without
serious injury; put Mr. Malone sunk into A
noarly to his arms, and belbro he could be
extricated, was literally cooked, so that when
they stripped him of his pantaloons and
drawers, his flesh pealed from the bones. He
lingered in great agony and pain until be
tween 9 and 10 o'clock on the same. evening,
when death put an end to his misery. The
young mon wa about twenty-ono years ol
age, and, was formerly from Eastoii,Pa
The Rev. Ephkaim Jtoson, a clergyman
in Norwich City, Conn., in 1771, was an ex
ceedingly quaint and original preacher.'
Remarking at one time upon the excuses
mado by the guests invited to the wedding
feast, he " observed that tho- one who had
bouirhtSvoke of oxen simnlv entreated to
be excused, while tho ono who married a' wifo,
absolutely declared that he could not com'.
"Hence learn," said the preacher, "that one
woman con pull harder thanjiw.yoleof oxen.''
