JJThe Grasshoppers are playing sad
havoc in different portions of tho county.
. In some neighborhoods they have entirely
' destroyed every variety of vegetation par
ticularly the onion crop. Mr. Aldert Clay
iool of Bloom township, informs us
they have done at least five hundred dol
lars worth of damage to his grass crop. Mr.
Andrew Peters, near Royalton has also
lost considerable by their depredations.
JtThe Whig denies the rumor that
cholera had made fts appearance in Mt.
Vernon. It says that not a single case of

there has been a few cases in the vicinity

the city. V : .

Transportation of Goods to the West.
--The Boston Transcript says the loss to
New England.oceasioned by the troubles at
Erie last winter, is upwards of one million
of dollars. The merchants of Now Eng
land have undertaken to investigate the
cause of the detention of tho goods they
sent. They say it arises from a combina
tion of circumstances, such as tlie troubles
atErio, the want of sufficient equipment on
the other lines, and a general waiit of prop"'
er system upon the great roads to the West.

A HOLIDAY SKETCH.
It was a cold December night. In a
well furnished parlor, gathered around a
blazing fire, sat a mother and her five chil
dren, .the former was busily plying her
needle, and the latter were engaged, some
in reading, some in arranging their newly
supply of toys, which their father anil
mother in the character of Santa Claus, had
supplied them on Christmas.
"It is a bleak, cold night," said Dr.
Warton, as lie entered the room, and with
out divesting himself of his over corit and
"mufflers," drew up a chair near the fire.
"And now you have como homo for all
night, I hope," s?id Mary the eldest of tho
"I am riot sure of that," said the father,
drawing near the fire.
"No, indeed, you are not," replied Ma
ry. "Father, I wish you were not a doc
tor."' "And why so?" asked tho father.
"Because. you never have a moment that
you can call your own. You have to ride
all day, and you may be called away atany
time of night, no matter what tho weather

, "Not always," ' said Mary, thefo are
many poor people who never pay anything
for fathor's visits." ' .''
"But," continued Johnny, '"father-don't
get up in the night or travel bad roads for
them." ' .' .. ' -

told me of poor woman who had a nek
child; 'and,' naid be, 'I think they heed a
doctor, but are too poor to employ on,'
I asked him to show me - the house, and
when I entered I found that a doctor was
indeed needed. A little girl about nine
years old, was lying on a bed, very low
with a fever. I think she cannot live. A
little boy, two years older, entered while 1
was there, with an armful of sticks which
be had picHd up from under the enow on
the common, and this save a few brands
that were smoking on the hearth, was all
their fuel. - The sick girl, lam afraid, can
not live, and the mother has no means to
make her comfortable; I doubt whether
any of the f.imily have tasted a morsel of
