IV t have no disposition to be officious, jor to interfere with any -matter tnleas it eon tein the interest of the party, as well aa .being .contrary to our own opinions of what is a right and i wrong course. . Washington City, standing in the rela tion H does io this country, always ha, and ever will continue, to furnish materi el for all parties and persons for a differ ence of opinion concerning the policy, adopted by the men, and the administra tion in power. Perhaps at no period with in a aeries of years, has there been as much effort made by croakers wilhnul as well aa within, the Democratic party, ns,V the present; Concerning those in the par ly, we have a word.' A few Democratic Senators at Washington, have a desire to thow Mr. Guthrie, Secretary., of the Treasury, their hand), in removing a few obnoxious to them persons from office, in Mr. Guthrie's employ, and appointed by himself. The right of any person to interfere wiih the appointment of subordi nates, is certainly a novel thing in this country, as well as a strange way of doing business, and certainty never heard of un til recently. The consequences that will follow this course of policy aie dangerous to any party. The removal of Mr Bron son, heeause he saw proper to employ as subordinate! if this really was the reason those he knew to be honest and faithful, is something new in the history of the ap poining power of this Government. Mr Guthrie can in nn way establish himself so lastingly in the hearts of the American people, as by refusing to suffer himself to be influenced to remove a sin jjle subordinate. The threat these Sena tors hnlJ over his head, that unless he will succumb to their wishes, they will make several ot his subordinate places Cabi net appointments, should have no terror to a f.iihful and competent public officer. A few examples may be made of men in office, who loved the self respect of their nature better than office ; but the Con sciousness of having done their duly will alwaj s be awarded and meted nut to those i deserving it. Then we pay, we hope he may stand firm, unawed by threa's of men in high places and weare satisfied that the people of this nation will unanimously, at the proper lime, approve in no equivo cal manner of the pniiiion taken. There is but one voice among all parlies in this iDMter, and thai is absolute detestation ol all who are engaged in it. Mr. Biionson barring any actual knowledge of ihe man, personally or po litically has at least showu to the world, that he did nol .value office as highly aa his self-respect ; and(whatever may here tofore have been the history good or bad of Mr Buhnson, this one act in which he has played a conspicuous part, ailintih slain in the drama, has added the faired and tallest leajhcr in his poliiical cap, that he has ever yet possessed. We do not mean to say, that we know sufficient of the details between Mr. Uutiii'.ir and Dro.nson, to fully make up our mind. All we pretend at present to say, is, that from the light before us, his course as well as Mr. Guthrie's, meets our entire appro vs1. True, '.here may be to the minds of some, circumstances that might partly mitigate this whole proceeding; but, whatever they ire, they have llieir origin wholly in the State of New York, and it certainly is ask ing loo much, us well as going too far, to ask he Demncraoy of this Union to I k pari in a difficulty that is the result of a local and purely personal reeling. SEW POST OrriCE APFOIJITMEflTaV At an election recently held in HannvA Township, in this county, for Post Master at Loudonville, John C. Larwill receiv ed a majority of the votes cast, and has been appointed P. M. for that place. . :. Tho. J. Cox has been appointed to the same office at Hayesville. Better men than Messra. Larwill and Cox could not have been chosen. Barton Greene, Esq , of Medina coun ty, has teoeivtd the appointment of Mail Alien! on the Junction Railroad. ' Right glad are we thai the ' Old Stager received it. .; , . THE IIAIEMM AND IKOBAN. With great regret we announce tht fact, that " once rpor " has old Monsieur Thompson come back to-the world.'' We had supposed (hat the) requioan whicrt was sounded throughout 'Ohio, or! the eternal question of printing, had placed it fur a few years at least, in the" shades." But Ihe hankering after the flesh-prjts of Egypt, were rjcvtr stronger than 'ihe love the Statesman has aftera tittle public printing. It is well known thai the Board of Equalit zation is now in session at Columbus. They hsve a little and but linle print ing to do, and because forsooth, Mr. Mos can has had it done at another Democrat ic office, the Statesman . bas made it the reason of hurling its anathemas on the head of Ihe Auditor of State, threalning to annihilate him In the future, should he ask any favors from the Democratic party. Our advice now, to Moroan, is to " wrap ihe drapery of his couch around him,"1 and prepare lo be annihilated. For be it remembered, that the old leaven which has always been in thai office, still holds out. A change of men has done but little to si lence the rravings of that insatiate appetite peculiar only to the Statesman office. We respectfully ask the veteran editors of the Slutesmm, lo defjr their attacks on die men of our parly, until there is some reason why it should be made, other than personal. The editors of the Statetman, should know ere this, that this clap-trap about printing, has bee'u worn out ; and further, the terrors that it once produced, by crush ing men politically and throwing them out of tlx) party, has ceased. We Slate this litilo matter for the benefit of these men, who spend the mid night oil in making war upon our present efficient and talented Auditor of State, Wm. D. Moroan. All who know him in private or public life, know liia to be an honest man and poli tician. Have some others the same repu tation I What's in the Wind I The Colum bus Capital Fact, the oilier day, put forth a report respecting the managers of the hanks in that city, which has upon its face a leattire of some importance, and which certainly should bu explained" thai Judge Liwan, so lorn; and lavorauly known as ihe 1'rcsidcnl of the Board of Control, has nol only resigned that responsible po sition, but thai ho and Dr. Parsons have " sold out," and "stepped from under;" that Wm. Ni il his dissolved all connec tion with Columbus hanks; thai Alfred Kelly, the father of the State batik system has stepped out ; that the sagacious, tvily, and fur-seeing Wm. il. liubburd, too, has sold out his interest in banks and bank ing." What Uoe it mean? Cin. En quirer. C7" It means that there is to be another " financial operation," which will proba bly show that some villains in another State have purchased from these gentlemen their interest. But let it sican what il will, all we have lo say to citizens of this county is, lo stand from under ! Watch the Hanks closely, but never cease pray ing for in an hour when it migtit be least expectt d, thev will break. Lclevcrv man holding doubtful paper money pre para for the inevitable cr'uis. Every thing betokens it. In a number of States in succession they have commenced crack ing. Again we say, look out for the crash ; for the result, ns usual, will effect the la boring masses only. PROSPERITY OF ASULANDi i It is witfj rrtuch' pleisure that we nolict; Vie numerous improvements, publio and private, new in progress' in our town. The new Court House is certainly " fair lo look uppn," and . is universally admired. The elegance of its design, and, its superb and tasty finish, together with its adapta tion lo'ihe purpose for svtiiph ft is designod, meets with' unqualified' approbation,' hot only from the citizens' of our own town and county, but from visitors from abroad. Indeed, il hat been pronounced one of the beat in lh Stale., The " old consarn" has. been removed, and, in the course of a few weeks, we hope we shall be able lo boast of a " public piazza." Our "City Fathers" have lately purchased a Fire Engine, to gether with some 800 feel of Hose, which is said to be of the f first water." Wells hare been dug at all important points, and in abort, every ' preparation necessary to the protection of the property cf our citi zens, has been made. . . I . . A nol less encouraging fact is, ihe in creasing energy and spirit of " go-ahead-a-liveness," which our business men are bo ginning to manifest. Everybody feels that that "good time " which has been so long talked stout has indeed nrroven." Not only is there a general " waking up " among our old business men, but there are also numerous new arrivals. The fact that the Broad Gauge " is bound lo come, is bringing in new business m:n from abroad. Almost every available business siahd is nnw occupied, and what are not soon will be. We would advise mechanics and men of capital abroad, who purpose changing their location, lo give Ashland a call before settling elsewhere. We can see no reason for doubting our future prosperity. Our Railroad once completed, all kinds of business must re ceive a new impetus. May many years of prosperity attend our now flourishing village. hat Messrs Johns k Aukn. It may not bo known generally, that this firm are con stantly receiving a new supply of Hard ware. Any and every thing used can te had at their Store. Their arrangements are such with eastern establishments, thai they can buy at least ten per cent less, and as a mutter of course they can afford to sell, ten per cent lower than any Hard, ware establishment in this section of the Et lie. Let those who dual in Hardware call and be convinced for themselves, and we think tl.ey will nol go away dissatisfied. Further, we are told hy Mechanics that ths quality of their ware cannot bo sur passed. There can be no necessity now, for any citizen of this county going to Woostcr or Mansfield, is heretofore, lo purchase articles in ihe Hardware line. , American Indebtedness. A writer in the New York Journal of Commerce makes the following estimate : The total debt ofths United Slain is 158,000,000 The uul debt ol the individual e'latea, botb aAioojif tad conrin ffrnf, according to the ceniua nl I860, was about 209,O0O,CC0 The number of milra of , Hailroad in the tailed ' Males, tilmbed.

A Washington correspondent of the New York Times says : I suggested the inquiry last evening, " Whero did Santa Anna get ('250,000 lo pay the interest on Mexican bonds held io England f" It will be remembered thai when he returned lo Mexico last spring, his efforts to raise money for this very pur pose, among others, failed utterly, even the church refused to aid him, and threatening resistance to any forced loan he mighl make, il I inialake nol. As ho could nol pay, he wrute to England that ho would pay soon, lid then ssnl to Washington for Sonor Larraiuzcr, Mexican minister here, and transferred him lo Hume. Very soon after 1:3 bud lime to communicate with' his government 'from Home, Santa Anna re-established the order of the Jesu its in Mexico, and almost simultaneously obtained the money for which he sought in vain nol long before. It is believed that Senor Lirrainier induced the Pope In pro cure fur Santa Anna the good will aud " material aid" of the church and that one'of the conditions of the bargain was the restoration of the Jesuits on die one hand, and the raising of (250,000 on the other. I ho circumstances seem to cor roborate this statement. If il is true, the fads aro significant, stowing, as they do thai Santa Anna is to be supported by the church, a powerful element in Mexican so ciety. Methodist Property Suit. This great controversy between lite Northern and Southern branches of the Meihodist Churches teems about lo bo brought o an amicable arrangement. It is agreed lo submit the mailers in dispute to a joint commission of persons belonging to the two divisions. Tho N. Y. Timet says : Judgo McLean, yielding lo tho earnest requcjt of buili parties,, has consented to act as umpire ; and hu is now in this city fur that purpose. . Rev. Drs. Smith and Eaaly, of Virginia i Green, of Tennessee ; and F arsons, of Kentucky, appear as Commissioners for iho Chursh South ; and Messrs. Curium, l'hiliips, l'orter, aud Hev. Dr. Peek, act fur the Northern Church. .The Commission will probably be occupied in ihe consideration of the case duiing the week ; and we trust thai the result of its action will bo a final close of one of the most lamentable ccclcssias- licnl con Iro i ernes the country has ever The European War. - The well informed London correspond ent of Ihe New York Tribunt, in apeak ing of ihe tare reverses the Russians have sustained from 'the Turks on the Danube lay I i ' ; i ; The immediate consequences of these Russian reverses it the concentration of a large, Austrian, force on Ihe frontiers of Servia, which sgaif" has ei to a general: armament of the Serbs in Ihe Principality. Austrian neutrality cannot be maintained much longer Step by -step we are ap proaching that crisis which has been pre dicted by Kossuth, but not credited by the politicians of Europe and America. The Emperor of Russia, on the other tide, be fore he became informed of the reverses of his army of occupation, issued a manifes to, haughty and impertinent, putting a stop to all further diplomatic negotiations, and appealing to the sword. The document is thought lo be of such a nature as will lead shortly to a rupture between France and Russia, The next spring will proba bly find all Europe in battle array, Russia, Austria, Prussia, all Germany and Belgium on one side, and France, Sardinia, Hol land, Switzerland, and Turkey on the oth er. A revolution in Paris would, of course, give a different turn to the affair, in favor of Russia, and therefore it is not impossi ble thai such a revolution may take place. Whenever Russia hat required a street fight in Paris il never failed to happen. The Tribune save editorially of the late engagements : So much is, however, clear, namely, that the Turks have been mantivered with a degree of skill and have fought with a steady enthusiasm sufficient to justily the laudations of their warmest admirets, laudations thai by the mass of cool and impartial men have been regarded at ex aggerated. ThO result is a general sur prise. Of Omer Pasha'a talente at a com mander, all persona were prepared to re ceive very brilliant proofs, but ihe merit of his army has not been recognized by Wes tern journalists or statesmen at its true value. It is true in rankt are filled with Turks, but they are a very different sort of soldiers from those Diebitch drove be fore him in 1829. They have beaten the Russians with heaty odds and under un fa volatile circumstances. We trust this may prove but the augury and beginning of far more conclusive defeals. The obvious aim of Omer Pasha is In concentrate the whole of his forces afier crossing the Danube at different points up on Bucharest ; and the first decisive en gagement will, in all probability, take place in the attempt lo carry, by storm, the capital of Wallachia. The London Times, speculating the news, says : " If 40,000, or even 30,000 Russians, have been utterly routed hy 20,000, or et en 30,000 Turks and we do not see how to disbelieve it it cannot be denied that the Ottoman and Russian armies are nol what they were respectively presumed to be, nol nnly all Europe, but even by tho belligerents themselves. That the Czar confided in his strength is evident from his arrogant aggression ; that Ihe Sultan was persuaded of his weakness, is clear from itis demands for support. If theso pre sumptions have been overturned, and if the Russian Empire is indeed inferior, or even nol much superior to the Turkish Empire in military power, the policy of Eurupe must be re-adapted to this singular metamorphose. We confess, again, our own inability lo believe such an extraordi nary phenomenon, but intelligence or facts, however long delayed or obscurely com municated, must eventually arrive, to elu cidate and decide i It o question." The Leeds Times says : " One of the most powerful arguments of Ihe believers in a paciho settlement bv ambassadors or plenipotentiaries was, that tho climate ami soil yf the DiS'jhian Prin cipalities would preclude the possibility oi immediate hostilities between iho Russians and tho Turks. Moldavia and Wallachia are visited in the autumn by violent storms of rain, which Boak the loose nnd heavy ground, and render it impracticable for carls, artillery or men. Tho rivers, swol len by theso autumnal fall j, become im passible, and the marshy grounds of the Lower Danube are in lakes of muddy wa ter. By a curious turn of seasons, the an lumn rains have nut come down this year, the provinces are dry, and the Danube is so low that the ordinary mouths aro closed lo every sort of traffic. Tlu warlike spir it of the Turks has thus been served by providential droughts, and diplomacy been worsted by ihe weather." We hope thai the nexl steamer will bring us the news of the storming and ta king of Bucharest. That must be the next news, unless Omer Pasha be repulsed. Two Armtet Muskets and Spades. Tbe New York Economist, in an ani le upon the1 army of, tho United Statesi makes a startling contrast between the use of muskets and spades ; one used by Go. vernment, anil the other by a great railroad company : The United Stales army numbers about 10,000 men, and they cost the country last year, $8,225,240 for pay, subsistence, clo thing, etc. Thai is to say, V820 per man, or if we deduct the militia expenses, $300 per man. It would puzzle any one to tell of what service were those men, living uselessly in barracks and old foru, eating three meals per day, and turning out occa sionally to, touch their caps to their offi cers. ''! Tho Illinois Central Railroad army numbers 10,000 men also, and they receive from Ihe company 93,700,000 per annum, in return for which they labor ten hours per day upon a work that gradually stretch es itself through the most fertile plains, connecting the great Lakes with the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, and ultimately with tho -fefulf of Mexico. Tho relative advantages of these two ar mies to society present an intoroatiiig mat ler for study, and aro graphically sketched by the New York Post. The prospective building of the great Central Railroad of Illinois, alone has ad tied to the wealth of that State, in tho aj propriation of real lands, the sum of forty millions, within a strip of but twelve 'tit ties in width, and the actual construe ion of tho road will bring to a ready market millions of acres of land now owned by the general government, which, were the road uol con sructed, would lay wasted for years lo conic. The Federal Government employs ten thousand men, at an expense of eight millions of dollars, to carry muskets. The Central Railroad Company, employing ten thousand men at lens than four millions, confers a vast property on tho Slate, upon the Federal GoveniHMil, and upon thou sands of farmers. Year after year the Government spends millions of dollars, effecting nnihing, and resulting in nothing, but the turning loose of supcrannuatedsold icrs, made paupers by a life of idleness, to prey upon the industrious the remainder of their existence. The Illinois Company, by three years expenditures, establishes 700 miles of rails through prolific farms, many of tl.em own ed by ihe persons whom they employed lo build the road men of industry, vigor, wealth and intelligence. Tito Ij. Si. in thirty years, havo spent 300,000,000, enough to build a double track to tho Pa cific, and they have nothing to show for iho money but some old forts, guns, tat tered uniforms, and demoralized veterans. -"iBnii!ittifttarap;;'.; k ! tVww uwvx IMPRISONMKNT OK AN AnKRICAN ClTlZKN in Ciiia.
