For County purposes there has been in increase, owing lo the large outlay in creeling ind finishing the Public Buildings, flesetufore, the amount levied for Counly parpoae has always been loo small, and the consequence has been that the Counly Orders have been on interest most of Jlie year, there being no ends in the Treasury. Th ComBMssiewers, having desire lo manage ihe affairs of the County as eco nomically is possible, thought the most ef fectual way to accomplish it in part, was.!o levy enough lo cover all the expenses of the County, and thereby save Ihe amount of interest paid ouisjvery year, besides be ing au accommodation lo ihe people who held Orders on the Treasury, to say noth ing of die additional benefit of saving 'a shsre in the Order, from the speculating shirks who seek to take advantage of eve IJ man holding one.

In 1853, Montgomery Township levied a special lax for the Union School of this place, of $3,149,29, and in 1853, only $1,070,60 2 making a differ ence of $1,172,61 8. , There has also been an increase in Road laxes, ordered by some Townships and for which tbey are alone responsible, ' , . The whole mystery in regard to high ttxes, is revealed in tho additional Slate levy for School purposes, ind the increase of the Township levies, and $8,200 for County purposes of all kinds, which is but l trifle in causing an increase in our laxes.

Editor Ohio Union ; Since my last communication, several important meas ures have boen introduced into both branch es of the Legislature, Mr. Follett, has introduced a Bill lo prevent the circulation of foreign bank bills of a less denomination than five dollars ; which, when modified slightly, will doubt less pass. Such a law is demanded at this time. Ohio is now flooded with millions of worthless (rash issuing from adjoining Stales ; and there is, seemingly, no effec tual way of driving it from circulation here, but to pass a stringent law on the subject. ihs compelling its withdrawal from this Slate. Mr. Akdoson has introduced a bill lo pinish those who adulterate spirituous liquors. This is also a measure of con siderable importance. - When an effectual atop is put 10 such adulteration, many of the fearful consequences now following the use of ardent spirits, will have 10 end. Delirium tremeni evidently is produced by the adulteration of spirituous liquors bv ihe use of deleterious compounds. The greater portion of our wines, brandies, cins. rums, die., are made from raw whis- .a key, by mixing ilwith coloring snd poison, destructive of human life. 1 he bill will probably pass with some amendments. It provides for ihe appointment of one in spector (or each county. A bill to protect Jewe from arresl in civil cases, while engaged on Saturday's in iheir religious services, was introduced into the Senate, and finally passed that body, and has now gone down to the House for its concurrence therein. Considering the many privations which that peculiar peo ple have labored under in almost every country on the Globe, it is but an act ol Justice, that they should be proleeted in this matter, in a country boasting of so much freedom as our. A series of resolutions in relation lo the Vebraika bill, introduced in Congress by DrmaLAss, have been introduced into Ihe Senate by Mr. Upson, a Fusion-Abolition Whig, proposing to request our Sen ators and Representalirea in Congress, to make every effort to prowai the pasaage of such an act. I an of opinion that no such resolutions will pass either branch of the Legislature. The Stale Temperance Convention is now in session in this City. It is largoly attended, ind, considering the defaatof Ihe Temperance party last fall, considerable of enthusiasm exists among (he members of ths Convention ; and, with s few ex ceplions, all seems lo go off harmonioualy. There appear to be a difference of opin ion among ihe leading spirits, with regard to the course to be pursued in the future by ihe Temperauee mea. florae stoutly contending for the Main Law, while iher think it more expedient to ask for Pro hibitory Law. The current seem to run in favor of the fallen party. I think that if that is their resolve, and that they memoralize the Legislature for the passage of such a law, or isk that body to submit such a proposition to Ihe people, at a time when it will not come in conflict with any regular election, they will succeed. : The Military are now in session i this citf. Ths objeat of this Convention seems lo be, to frasjs a suitable law lo or gautse the Militia of Ihe State, in accord ance with the provisions of the New Con stitution. Some measure ef this kind is undoubtedly necesssry. Our government arms here, ire in a bad condition, for winl of om proper place to dapoaii them.

Editor Ohio Umon : According lo promise, I will proceed lo gireyou a sketch of my trip to this country, and the appear ance of things generally. We left Ashland County on the 5th of Oct. 1853 we passed through Greenwich, New Haven, Attica, Bucyrus, Marion, Marysvillo, Mechanicsburg and Spring field, to Dayton. The latter plare is an honor to Ohio. For energy, activity and affability, her eitizens cannot be surpassed. From Dayton, we passed through Eaton, and shortly after bid farewell to our be loved Ohio, In the Hoosier State we passed through several towns and tillages, the mosl noted of which wss Richmond City the mosl beautifulriver town in the Slate. It should be called the "Garden City of the Weat; " everylhirg being as neat as i pin. We finally arrived at the Capital, which, for neatness ind beauty, exceeda the Capital City of Ohio. It contaim, some buildings, whiuli, for workmanship and architectural beauty, are as fins as I have ever seen. The buildings for benevolent purposes ire truly slogan!, and speak loudly in favor of the benevolence of tho people of Indiana. With the western part of the State I was not very well pleased. Diverging to the South-west, we passed through some very poor looking country, and, as we neared the Wahash, we passed through miles of sandy Prairie, nnfit for cultivation. We crossed the Wabash at Terrehaute a town of much business but badly laid oul ; houses in dusters, and the majority bent upon gain, little els. Still contin uing in a south-westerly direetion, we passed through some fine country in Ihe Sucker Stale. From BlaoinlSeld our route ley through large prairies, (the first that we had seen that were large.) but little limber and thinly settled. We passed through Urbana iqd Bloomiugtou, ihe latter tho handsomest place, by far, that I saw in Illinois. Next arrived at Peon, the city of Blacklegs, and ihe hardest place on the whole road. Home of the people, (like some others you will find in moving) con sider movers completely expatriated, and only fit to be cheated, fleeced ind taken advantage of, They ire Ihe last people who should claim Ihe privilege of execut ing the extreme penalty of the law upon Uiose who have violated them. I was very unfavorably impressed wkh both the country and people of Illinois. Leaving Peora, we passed through but tittle oun- Iry that I liked. With the town of Gadesburg and Monmouth, and the count try around them, I was, however, very well pleased. Had I psssed through Illi nois some other way, I might have liked il belter. After much loil and fatigue, we at la I arrived at the Father of Wateri "the Mississippi. Here, your reader will re collect, is where Billy Bkdb's Buffalo's and Deer, and Tectjhscii's scalping Itnife, lie buriod in the " aihct of dctpair," In looking it this magnificent stream for the first lime, one is Cllad with admiration ; and yon mentally exeiaim, while gazing upon this, one of ihe greatest exhibitions of the creative power of the Almighty, how wonderlul at thy works, O God.! " W crossed Ihe river at Burlington, among the trst business places in this State, snd for .the first time el4oot on tho toil of law. Burlington is place of consider able trade, and was -once the Capital of Ihe State. The infcaraitants axe very hos pitable and kind. ' The location of the town is not very handsome, being n rath er s narrow deCle between jhe liter and Bluff. The streets sre wide, snd the buildings displsy considerable taste, la ihe business men yon soon discover a trait of character peculiar to western men frankness. From Burlington we travelled on flank Road sotus twenty-eight miles, to Mu t feasant, the Shir town Qf Unry county.

The. friends of Rait Road enleprises will be very glad lo learn that Mr. Chamberlain il interested in Ihe work, and. again we have the old firm of Dooliltle and Cham berlin revived, ' These gentlemen have been long known for their enterprise and energy, and for fifteen years past have been almost constantly engaged in the con. struclion ol Publio Works.' The large capital Ihey have accumulated, beoause all their undertakings have been carried to a successful completion, augur most favora bly for the ttrnad Gunge Rail Road. ' Mr. Chamberlain it will be remembered, was the1 contractor for the' Ship Canal in British' Province, the heaviest work prob ably that ha been completed in North America; ' It is slated that at one time he had as many as a thousand hands at labor on a single mile of that work.'

The New York and Greal Western, more familliarly known is the Broad Guage Railroad, will alone cost over seven million dollars. Il will be Ihe great trunk road from New York through Ohio, lo St. Louis, of one tiontinnus guage. t is believed that under their management the road will be ready for tunning the cars in less thsn two vears from this time , when through trains from ol- irftuts to New York City, upon a sit fool guage, without patting through Erie) may be run, without a single change ot oars.
