The "boys" are a fine set, and will do i lienor to themselves and their flag. ; Ohio Se.vatoii. Salmon P. Chase, of Cincinnati, has been elected a Senator of the United States from j Ohio. Mr. Chase is a free soiler, and is, we arc in- t formed by an acquaintance of his, resident in this j city, a splendid man, and a gentleman ot liberal and enlightened views. He succeeds the Hon. William Allen, whose Ios from the Senate at this time will be regretted by the democracy throughout the coun try. Delaware Senatok. We notice a telegraphic despatch, dated Philadelphia, Feb. , statin? that "John Wales was elected U. S. Senator in place of John M. Clay tun," on that diy. Mr. Clayton's time was not out until in lröT ; so it may be concluded beyond doubt that Clayton has resigned for the purpose of "oinz into Tavlor's cabinet. Cincinnati and St. Lot is Kailkoad. We were probably in error when we stated, u few days ago, that the refusal of the riIit id' way by the Illinois Legislature, would defeat the O'uo and Mississippi Railroad project. The company will not, it seems, abandon the entcrprize. Wc learn from the Cincin nati Lnquirer that the City Council of that city, on the 10th instant, passed ujwm and approved the draft of an act to be presented to the Legislature of 0:iio, authorizing the city of Cincinnati to contribute 500, COO in aid of the location and construction of that work at the rate of sli".t 00 a year. The course proposed is to loan that amount to the company, the bonds of the citv to be Bold to realize the money. The route runs across the southern part of Indiana, and is of great importance to a large tract of country in that portion of our State. We have noticed that meetings have been held in behalf of the object in several of the counties interested, all of which sevrn to have been pervaded by a determination to havo the road at whatever cost. Some of the counties projose to take stock in their corporate capacity. We doubt the wisdom of this measure. All experience has shown that buch under takings had better be left to individual enterprise. When a county steps aside from its proper sphere of action, and engages its means in enterprises foreign to the objects uf its creation, confusion and difficulty is generally, sooner or later, the consequence. Xo pros pect of gain should induce sucii a step, for counties, as such, have no use for means, except to defray cur rent expenses of county uvenimtnt, and for local improvements. Aside from the right of counties to raie money by taxation for such purposes, we doubt its policy. The voluntary subscription plan is the best in every point of view. 07-L. P. Mii.i.i .an, Lsq., editor of the "Demo cratic Age," published at Huntington, Ind., is brought forward by his friends, in a communication in the Fort Wayne Sentinel, ns a suitable candidate for Congress in the 10th Di-trict. In placing the name cf Mr. Milligan before the public for that otlice, (says the communication,) his friends have no eulogy to pass upon his character. For his ability as a states mail, they refer the people to the columns of 'The Democratic Age," which periodical he has conducted since its commencement ; and for his popularity as a loan, to his vote for Senator in August last, in this district, where he reduced a clear whig majority of one hundred and fifty to barely seventeen." Perhaps the democracy might go further and do worse. (gjVe arc pleased to see that our young and tal ented friend, Matthew S. Wahd, Esq., recently of this city, has passed the necessary examination and been admitted as an attorney and counsellor of the Supreme Court of the United States. The famous Daniel Gott, 31.

Put the taxpayers must get used to such things, and then it wont seem hi odd. The whole nßair was p)t up in grand style, ftn expensive supper ordered, committees despatched in various di rections, hacks hired ; powder, litjuor, und et ceteras procured in quantities to suit.

The Cincinnati (.Iazette, whos-o proprietors art? largely interested in the Telegraphic Line, have become so fully convinced of its bad man agement, and the almost total inutility of placing tho least reliance on its reports furnished to the West, have called the public attention to the subject in sev eral article. It says : There is no such thinir ns cjenviii or covering Up lhe eft'ets of the telegraphic reports that come to the W-t. They are l.rinjr, and jervnde alike commercial advices, foreign news, congressional proceedings, and t lie general intelligence pertaining to the eastern cities. Tho Loujsv ille Journal suggests the holding of a convention of western editors, for the purpose of ar ranging lines of telegraphic correspondence, select ing their own reporters Last as well as agents West, an 1 apportioning the expenses to each of the several cities ay Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Louisville and St. Louis. In this way, it thinks, if they pursue the right course, they can make these western cities, with New Orleans, what the eastern cities already are: great centres of telegraphic correspondence and in addition render the telegraph of "great interest to their readers, and incalculable pecuniary advantage to themselves." The Gazette also believes "that it may be made an instrument of great service to the community, and much advantage to the press. Put thus far, it cannot be denied, it has been a heavy bill of expense to the latter, and to the firmer lias continually held the word of promise to the ear only to break it to ;he hope." 0?-The following is the P. S. to a letter from Al bany, N. Y., of a recent date : 'Let me add something that cannot be transferred to th? canvass. Mrs. Gov. Fish gave her usual weekly party last Tuesday, unusually brilliant, from the appearance there of ien. Wool, with a numer ous stall', hi T ilit iirf. These were the i4fj" of the evening, but the mutes were decidedly the liun- o.'i'j. It is said that a plain country member, unus ed o such sights and especially to the quickness of intellect and of digital l anguage, so striking in the deaf and dumb, approached one of the pretty mute., and softly whispered in her ear, "Pray, Miss, how long have you been learning in the institution ?" This is decidedly rich. All Albany is alive lo know what the girl answered." This incident reminds us of one of a similar char acter, which occurred in this city a few years ago, r.t a public exhibition of pupils connected with our State institution for the education of the htind. Tho Principal, who is entirely blind, informed the audi ence that several of the pupils then present could readily solve any proposition in mental arithmetic which could be put by any one present. A "mem ber" mentioned a difficult sum, nnd was requested lo put it in writing, which he did; when it was finish ed, nothing daunted, the "member" marched up to the pulpit and held the paper for some time, expect ing thc blind principal to take it and read the sum ! A deafening roar of laughter sent the gentleman to Iiis scat, which, it is uunecessarry to add, Le did not vacate again during the exhibition. Oty'The N. Y. Journal of Commerce estimates the number of emigrants from the IT. States for Califor nia within the 1 ist ten weeks, at about 9,(1(10 per sons, viz: from New York, about f,)!0; from Hus ton, about PhMi; from Philadelphia, Dili; from Hai ti more, oül ; from New Orleans, about f00 ; from other ports about lf0. A large proportion of their, are men of good character and firm health, stout, robust men, capable of any thing that men can achieve. If those that we have seen are a specimen, n better set of emigrants never settled a now country, unles- we except the Pilgrims of New England. Had California been nearer to us, or had it been possible to uet there without an expense of V,!0U or jsIJOO, many vagabonds would have joined in the race ; but the misfortune both to them and to this community is, that they are too poor and too worthless to command the necessary funds.

Now read the following from the National Lra : Ohio tit'.uutiirrf. AWFUL RLIXDXRSS. R. W. Thompson, :v Taylor member of Congress from Indiana, in his slavery speech in the House last Thursday, said : ... ... ...... "What was thrt 'slave trade' here? He lud heard a great deal said about 'slave pens ;" ahout slaves M!d at Miction : about stripping the mother from the rhild, etc. These things might exist here, but be did not know of them. Since he had first come to the District of Colum bia, ho had never seen a n'ro sold; he had never seen a band of negroes taken oh" by the tdave-trader ; he bad never seen a slave-trailer. He did not know w here your 4!lavo pen was. It might be here, however, und these thines might happen every day before the eyes of thostj gentlemen who chose to hunt "them up ; lor himself, he had no taste for such things." If he hid less taste for such things, he would have rnoro knowledge about them. If he will take a walk on Seventh street, over the ranal bridge, the first hou-e on the right hand side of the way, south of the ranal, is the most famous slave pen. It stands gome two or three hundred yards from the Smithsonian In Ftitute. If he .ill take the trouble to loo!: into the papers of the counties of .Maryland adjoining the District, lie will see standing advertisements by the slave dealers here, for the purchase of 6laves in any quantity, to b? delivered at their depots in Washing ton city. If he had lived on M .try land Avenue, about one vear rt"o. he miuht have seen, if iut stricken with blindness, at an interval of some weeks two large slave cotll.-s, the slaves chained together, and numbering in one, nearly sixty, in the other, nearly one hundred, marched into Washington ; ai'd, had he soon after stood nt the Lower Pridjrc, or the wharf on the Potomac, ho would have sen th"se same, or other collies, dragging their weary way across that bridge, or passing on the feteamboat for Alexandria, or further south.
