R A VENNA.'OHIO; Monday, July 16, IS49. Union of the New York Democracy. "t hd union of the Democracy of the Em piree State seems to be in a fair way o, being eflscted. The Stale Central Com mittees oi boih sections have agreed to rec ommend the appointment of one delegate from ench organizntion, to meet at Rome, O the 15th cf August next, for consnlta .liop, and to devise ibe means of union, dtc. The leading men of 6oth sections of the party in New York city have issued an address to the Democracy of the State, ad vising the holding of a Union Convention. In reg-rj to principles they say: We are agreed in our hosiilily to the 6ta:e and national administrations we are greed in opposition to a nationul bank, a high protective tariff, a wasteful system of ' internal improvements by' the general or State government, corporate monopolies, and the plunder they effect. We are a greed in the support of an independent treasury, a tariffl'or revenue, a sound sys tem of State finances, and the reforms se cured by our new constitution. We are opposed to the extension of slavery, and fWim m sea it arrested bv all lawful and constitutional means, while we repudiate any attempt to interfere with it in those States in which it now exists." (t7 The Washington correspondent of the New Haven Register says that a few "conscience whigs" refuse to lake the gold d liar because they come from Califurnio, the country wrongfully obtained from the Mexicans by a bloody and unjust war. Panama Railroad. The New York papers announce that the $l,0OO,tOO cap itnl stock of this road has all been taken, chiefly by New Yorkers. Some subscrip tions were received from Connecticut, Mas sachusetts and Pennsylvania. This will he sufficient to put a railroad in operation from Panama, on the Pacific, to the navi. gable waters of the Chagres, which flows into the Atlantic. State Agricultural Ain Postponed. In consequence of the prevalence of the eholera at Cincinnati, the Slate Agricul. . turaj Fair, which was to have been held in that city in September, has been postpon d until next year. Dealb of Mrs- Madison. Mrs. Dolly P. Ma&iso.v, wife of Ex iPresident Madison, died in Washington City on Friday last, in the 81st year of her ge She was said to be a lady of fine tal ents and fr scinatiog manners, and her res idence was the seat of hospitality. Accidents op the 4th We learn ny the Staik County Democrat, that, at Louisville, in that county, by the premature discharge of a cmnon, a young man nam d M effort had his right hand carried a way, and perhaps lost his eye-sight, be ides being otherwise teverely injured. Another joung man who was assisting him was severely injured. At Bricksville, Cuyahoga count)', two young men were severely injured by the premature discharge o( a cannon, one of whom is not expected to live. At Salem, Columbiana county, a cannon burst, and a piece was driven about forty rods, falling through the roof of a .house, end alighting in a cradle from which a mother had just taken her infant. No one w? s injured. ff"" Notwithstanding Gen. Taylor de dared that no man should be proscribed for opinion sake, and though it was declar ed that he 'hales, nay loathes proscrip tion," the way he makes Democratic office holders walk the plank to give place to ultra' Whigs, furnishes ab-iut the only ev idence that he is a whig. fJ5,The Circuit Couit of the United States," which by law is requredtobe held in Columbus during this month,' has been adjourned in consequence ot tne prevailing epidemic, to the third Monday in October next , ' - v 05" (Jen.

It is said .that Mr. Key did not interfere in politic., bu the glorious song of his father has been doing so for more than thirty years. Thr Cholera. During the past week, there have been three cases of this disease, aHof which proved fatal. Mr. George W. Robinson was taken on Friday last, and died the following morning. Dr. Morrow, of Londonderry, was attacked here on his way home from Cincinnati, on Monday last, and died yesterday morning. Mrs. Decamp was attacked about noon on Tuesday, and died the same evening about eight o clock. These are all the cases that have occurred to our knowledge, or that have been report ed by the Board of Health. Chilicotke Ad vertiser. Mr. Geo. W. Robinson was formerly a resident of Ravenna. His acquaintances here will receive the news of his death with sorrow. ' '(lyTbe Cleveland Plain Dealer of July 13th says: ''Gov Ford has left town this morning for Columbus. He is called to act in the case of the convicts, who, cooped up in prison, are dying by dozens with cholera. He will probably pardon out those whose term are about to expire, and those confin ed for trifling offences. The mortality in tliaf Prison has been terrible over one-fowihhi.-t alrcadr died," The Cheese Trade. The pric? paid for cheese this year in our market, is a little less than was paid last year, or for some years previous. The cause of this fall ing off in price is not gen erally understood by dairymen. The rea son is furnished , in the following extract from a Circular letter, of Samuel Perry, of New York City, one of the largest cheese dealers in the United Stales: "In reply to the many enquiries addressed to me relative to the prospect of Cheese for the coming year, I cannot say, that I regard it as fa vorable, unless at low prices from the best in formation I can get, the production both in this country and England will be very large, far ex ceeding any former year consequently it must be evident to all, that prices must go 10 a point that will justify exporting all our surplus and the ntfestion OTrocnts it-self, "JVAot is that p-JntT' I certainly cannot undertake to deter mine it, but will giveyou the views of our En lish correspondents and shippers, together with mv own. and leave you to draw your own onclu- sion. First, they say, prices were too high last season, and the result disastrous to all shippers, which is a fact beyond all question second, they sav. with the ereat increase, both in England and this country, and with all other ' kinds of food low, it will be impossible to sustain last lea son's pruet finally, they say to all their corres pondents, that it will be impossible to realize sat isfactory results from shipments of Cheese at a cost ot over to 6 cts. Here, tor tne very dcsi. i am freft to confess these prices seem very low, I fear greatly below the ideas of the farmers, at the same time thev should bear In mind, that for the past two of three jeafs they have realised Irish nrfces at the expense of the dtater, who have generally lost money consequently it is for the interest ot all, tnat prices suouiu noi start so high as to cause an accumulation or stocx, or a reaction in price. I well remember that in 1814 wesold our best Herkimer County dairies, for shipment, at 5 to 5J cts.; yet at those low Drices heavy losses were sustained by the ship persowing, in a measure to the fact, that our Uneesc were not so wen unaerstoou or appreci ated at that time. 1 merely mention the fact that Tow prices have heretofore ruled in England and are likely to again." Attempt to Escape. On Saturday, we understand, some of the convicts at work on the New btate House, took advantage of one of the guards parting with his musket for a moment, to seize it. Joined by others, for a short time they seemed to be on the eve of a gen eral stampede, but the firmness ot the ot- beers, well armed, cowed them into su mission, and restored order. The convicts are said to be almost frantic with the fear of the Cholera. Columbus Statesman, Ju ly 9th. The Presidential Tour. We under stand, says the last Philadelphia News, that the President will leave Washington on his tour to the North, about the middle of Au gust. He will proceed from Baltimore to York, and from thence visit Lancaster, Har risburg, Chambersburgh, and the Bedlbid Springs, Hollidaysburg and Pittsburgh. He will then pass through Ohio to Cleve land, where he will embark for Buffalo, and will be at the New York State,Agricultural Fair at Syracuse on the 10th. From Al bany be will proceed east to Boston, and af ter visiting the capitals of New Hampshire and Maine, will return south via Provi dence, New York and this city, hi purpose being to reach Washington about the close of September. If Gen. Taylor passes through Ohio, he will of course visit Ravenna. It is ex tensively known that ours "is a thriving, pleasant village and is noted for the manu facture of carriages." If old Zack is made acquainted with this fact, and wanls a good carriage for himself and old VVhitey to ride in, we are sure he will not fail to come. Tbe Wheat Crop in Ohio. Wheat Crop &c The wheat crop in this section of country is almost entirely de stroyed with rust, and the weevil promises to take the balunce. We understand somo farmers do not iiuei.d to cut their wheat crop Mt. Vernon Whig. Wheat Crop. We hear from many of our farmers that the wheat crop is seii ously injured by the rust in many places scarcely one third will be saved. Ross, Fair tie. d and other counties complain of the same. Circleville Herald. Weevil in tub Wheat We hear complaints daily from our farmers about the weevil in their wheat. We hope the damage to the wheat may not be so bad as anticipated by our farmer. The same complaint is made in nearly every section of the State. Mansfield Jeff. Wheat Crop. The news pours in up on us from almost every quarter of the Stale, of the terrible destruction of the wheat crop, by rust and fly, (Red weavil.) Thousands upon thousands of acres are not worth cutting whole fields remain un touched by scythe or sickle. Our own wheat is a pretty fair crop, and obuut the only one we, kuow of in this region. Columbus Statesman. Wheat Crop. There is a general complaint, we see by our exchanges, that the rust has injured the Wheat. Our farm ers in this section sny that the the early wheat, although badly struck with it, is not injured, while the late is materially, if not in a great measure destroyed. In this immediate neighborhood the crop was too far advanced to be injuied. Stark Co. Democrat. ff?"A letter from Clermont county a.tys that in the town of New Richmond, on the Ohio River, from 12 to 15 die daily with the cholera. This is about 'one per cent of the inhabitants daily. A private letter shown us to-day from Cincinnati, says the panic there is afflicting. The writer was at Vera Cruz when the vomito broke out there, while in possession of the American army, but it was nothing to Cincinnati at this time. . We also learn from a private letter that some four or five cases have occurred at Sandmky City. Ohio Statesman, July 5. Col. Weller Ukmoveo The Wash ington correspondent of tbe New York Herald says: The rumor that Col. Weller had been removed from post of commissioner to run the boundary between this country and Mexico, and that Col. Fremont has receiv ed the appointment, is correct. Col.

On the occasion of the late visit of Old VVhitey at Cincinnati,,, the gjw most worshipped whigs of that city, formed a procession in rear of the Old horse, and while tagging him to his quarters, stole from his "switch" every graceful hair it had. A few of the silvery mementoes have been presented us, and now hanging in ''graceful ringlets" on a nail in our Sanctum. What a bu ied sea son it will be for this bob-tailed Administra tion about fly-time. Plain Dealer. OJThe Union says the whig collector of the port ot ban b rancisco and his family have thirty two horses and fourteen wag ons, each drawn by six mules making, in all, one hundred and sixteen horses and mules furnished by the government to transport him and his family to their destination. It computes the cost of sending out him and the two Indian neen's, one for fait Lake and one for Santa Fe, at $75,000. Awful . Denoument. The Cincinnati Courier, of June 29th says: Yesterday, a man was laid out, after dying, as was sup posed, by cholera. But while the burial service was going on, the supposed deceas ed came to. The consternation of the as sembled company may be imagined, but it cannot De described. We understand the cause of the mau's stupor was too large a quantity of cholera medicine given him containing opium. Persons should be care ful, and fend for a sensible physician at once. From the Ohio Patriot. Mr. Polk, the Dnrk River Colonel 0iS- lorj foreshadowing itself. Already we have concessions from the whig presses which faintly foreshadow the exalted position which the lamented Polk win occupy on the page of history. Those who once represented him as a "fifth rate country lawyer,"aro now exhibiting a will- ingness to do him partial justice. Ho who was once derided as the "Duck river Colo nel," is no longer an object of ridicule, but the confession is frankly made that "he has left a fame and a name behind him of which the Republic may never be asham ed," and that posterity will look back up on his administration as abounding in good, great and glorious deeds.'' These are no unmeaning ncknowledwments, and they should operate ns a perpetual warning to the Democracy never to give heed to the slanders and defamation heaped on their candidates previous to an election. Here is the language of the "National Whig, printed at Washington City, in closing its notice of the death of President Polk: "We are too near the events of the Mex ican war, to do him full justice for his par licipatiun .in that event. .It is well known mat tie was a war man, ana though we did not agree with the policy, which bro'i on the war and which closed it, we believe that the time will come, when the conduct op that war, with all its imperfection, will be regarded as one of the most brill iant achievements of any age. But bury ing in the same grave with his dead body alt the short-comings of his public life, his private 'life was unexceptionable, he has left a fame and a name behind him of which the republic mat never be ashamed. He had nut won the high re nown of a Clay or Webster, or a McLean, or a Vati Rurenj or a Woodbury, or a Cass, in his legislative oareer, he did not stand a head and shoulders above thousands of his fellows in the public service, when he was taken for the first executive office in the world; but he was preferred to the il lustrious Clay himself by the people, and he administered this great government with a skill., A steadiness, a boldness and a FKARLESNE88 that astounded even his friends, and alarmed the friends of con stitutional libsrly itself, by his excesses But, burying, as we have atid, all his ex cesses in the oblivion of the past, posteri ty WILL LOOK BACK UPON HIS ADMINISTRA TION A3 ABOUNDINO IN GOOD, GREAT AND glorious dked. This justice to his ac tions howeveris one of that sort that comes not, while the prejudices of the ex isting genet alion prevail. It will come on ly, when the men and the passions of his day shall be mouldering in the same grave with himself." The Crisis iu Canadat British Dominion almost at an End! It is evident, says the Pittsburgh Post, that a conflict ia approaching in Canada, which will termiuate in the complete over throw of British dominion in -the New World. The British party in Canada must give way to the advancing column of Deirt. ocratic Liberty. We copy below from the Montreal Gazelle of the 4th of July, an article which clearly indicates that the day of Canada's freedom is near at hand: The most important news that has yet arrived in Canada from England, since the conquest, reached Montreal last night. . '1 hey comprise the debate and division in the House of Commons, on the Canadi an Rebellion losses bill, and we venture to say that never was there debate nor divis ion in that House, that involved greater consequences to us. The downfall of British power in Amer ica will as assuredly flow from the decis ion the British Parliament has come upon this question, ns that British power now exists in Canada. It may be soon, or it may be late. From Jhe temper of the people it cannot be very late, although Lord Elgin and his present ministry un doubtedly have in it their power to raise a storm which may precipitate it. We have received a copy of the letter written by the under Secretary of State for the Colonies, to Sir Allan McNab, in re ply to the petitions which Sir Allan had then presented. It is tbe coolest piece of overweening of ficial insolence which it has been our lot to i e id, considering the immese interests in volved. Mr. Hawes takes it upon him to state that the petioners are under an entire mis apprehension ns to the Rebellion losses bill; that, in fact, they know nothing about it, and that they are a pack of insensate fools to have entertained any indignation on the subject. He also tells them, that although the ministry introduced the bill to compel the people of Canada to pay 100,000 to indemnify rebels, (all the loyalists having been paid up to within 5,000,) and altho' the supporters of ministers uniformly de clared from beginning to end, that the money was to eo to rebels, yet, as Lord Elgin chose to tell an unmitigated false hood, in the face of those facts, to the peo ple of Hastings, and the British Govern ment echo it, the petitioners must not pny any attention to the ministerial declara tions, nor to the provisions of the Rebellion Losses act, which the courts of law are bound to enforce, but that seeing they are good loyal people according to Lord Grey's beltel. thev will very dutnuiiy give every credence to the lie they are told, nhoul me intentions of the majority in Parliament, instead of the truth recorded in the statute. Mr. Hawes takes us only for col onist?. We are nothing more man mem colonists. The petitioner can be laughed at, sneered at, taunted with their, stupid loyalty, told they possess not the compre hension of Lord Elgin, nor of his uncle-in-law, Lord G'oy. and that they are incom petent to understand the Rebellion Losses bill. If it is not an insult to men of education and intelligence to be treated as Mr Hawes has dared to treat the wrroie Driiisn popu lation of Canada, then we know not what an insult is. We trust, with Mr. Hawes, that now they are assured that Lord Elgin has been acting entirely for their interests, and in accordance with what ought to be their feelings, they will submit entirely to the di rection of Lord Elgin and Lord Grey, and believe only what they tell them, and do only what they bid them. We hope that they will not blush when the unnadian sun shines upon them, n they yield to Mr. Hawes recommendation. The ball, we believe, ia now formed. Will it roll on and gather size and power? Gold Digging. Letter from Oregon CttT. The Kalida Venture publishes a letter from Or ville Risley, Esq., formerly of Putnam county. It is all about the gold mines.con firming the story of their richness, and coming from the source it does, it may be set down as authoritative. Mr. Risley and Mr. Creightoa, nnother emigrant from Putnam co., had visited the mines, and af ter working six weeks, had returned to O- regon City with each, as the pro ducts of their labor. A pretty fair return, that. Judge Skinner ( Alonzo1) went to the mines Inst fall, and had not returned when Mr. R. s letter was written. Lima Argus.

A few weeks since, a lather and son living in Itoss county, by the name ot Ubnstv, both ot whom weie addicted to intemperance, quarrelled, and tbe son beat the f'atbei. The father then- ordered tbe son to leave his premises, threat ening, if he returned, to kilt hi nr. The sun did return, and the father, true to his word for once, shot him daad in his tracks. The citizens being afraid to arrest him after the commission of the horrid deed, be left, and went into Clinton county, where he run at large for two or three weeks, until his daughter, who had witnessed the tragedy, learning his whereabouts, followed him into Clinton, went before a magistrate, made oath to the facts, and had her father arrest ed. At last accounts, he was lying in the Clinton jail, awaiting the arrival tf the Sheriff from Ross. This case is certainly without a parallel - a father beaten by his son, a son shot by his father, and the father arrested upon the affidavit of bis daughter. Statesman Washington Monument.

Should the epidemic visit the city, and the Hospital be found not large enough to hold the patients, the four spacious catholic churches in that city, were also tendered to the authorities for the reception of the sick. Such conduct shows a christian spirit, and is worthy of imitation. Statesman. Cincinnati Sanitary. The Board of Health of Cincinnati, on motiou of M r.
