tactics of the Administration will certainly wiu
jnless the Republicans in their strong holds

to abandon the strong Republican holds of
State to os without even aiming a blow, thus
completely putting the Republicans of those
section asleep, and to bring all the power
the Federal Administration to bear npon the
canvass in the close and doubtful Congressional
Districts. Thus they expect in those Districts
to elect their members of Congress, and in
Republican Districts produce that fatal apathy,
engendered by too great confidence, which shall
reduce the Republican rote in (how districts,
and elect the Locofoco State ticket. And
tell the Republicans of the Reserve that utiles

cessful one.

Townsend for a misdemeanor, noder tbe fourth
lection of the act of 1819, to which be pleaded
not guilty, and was held in the sum ef 8,5000,
and the witnesses were held in $ 100 each. This
alleges that Townsend was engaged in the trans

CLEVELAND. Oct. 6, '58.
F'hnd Trl'grtij'h Pome considerable in
terest has been manifested this week by our
Manufactures and Agriculturists, In making pre
paragons for the Cuyahoga Uonoty Fair, which
is to be held hi this city, commencing the 6th
of the presetit month and continuing three days.
The grounds of the Society on Ohio street, east
of Erie, have been placed In good condition,
and the indications at present aeem to warrcut
a successful exhibition. There has not beea
the interest taken In these fairs by onr citizen's
which ihpy are entitled to, and kt this reason,
many of tbe Ciyahoga County Fairs have been
eclipsed by their country cousins. But there p
pears at present to be a disposition on the part
of Clevelandcra, to make this Annuul Exhibi
tion of greater Interest thau heretofore, by con
tributing more extensively the products ..of
city skill and industry, that they may enter in
to friendly competition, with those from the
country. A large number of entries have been
made, aud there arc indications that it will tut
aurpnss in point of interest its predecessors.
Our city was visited by a very destructive
fire on the night of Oct 2nd, which destroyed
MX dwellinirs in West Cleveland. A consider
able portion of the property consumed was in
sured in the Washington Insurance Co. A
high wind was prevailing at the time, and it wus
with the utmost difficulty that the conflugratioo
was subdued. '
Fire company Ko. G, has been disbanded by
the late action of the City Conncil, aud their
Engine presented to No. 9. The occasion which
gave rise to this action of the city fathers, re
garding Xo. S, was a display of tho fighting
quaiilies of some of its members, nt the late
tournament held here, the tenth of lust Sep
tember, wheo some tco or twelve of these mo
dern heroes fell upon three firemen from a
neighboring city and gave them a. severe po
lishing off in a remarkable short space of time,
and in consideration of these services rendered,
they hate received a very polite invitation to
retire for the present from the fire department,
which they can do with tho pleasing cousola
tion, that they have left tbe department of pub
lic service for the public good, for iu society, us
it now exists iu cities," among the firemen in
particular, we too often fiud that the whiskey
jug supplies the motive power, which is applied
to tbe breaks, aud that this power is Dot always
confined to ti.e engine, but brtaki ont in other
directions, with most deplorable results, and
often by the time that the fire without is fairly
extinguished, the fire within bus been kjndled to
such an extent, that it is ready to commence its
work of destruction. Not npon inorganic, but
upon orgauic matter, and thus many a bloody
fray places the crown of a more complete deso

The subject of temperance has been engross
ing the attention of the public miud to some
exteut here of late. A series of Sundny dis
courses on this subject, bave been delivered iu
the principle churches of the city, to large aod
attentive audiences, and an interest has becu
minifested which speaks well for tho future,
There are at present six different Temperance
O'ganisut ions in tho city, of which tbe Father
Matbew's is the most numerous, composed most
ly of Catholics. Tho Iudepeodant Order of
Good Templars, number some five hundred
members, divided into four lodges. The Sons
of Temperance have one hundred active mem
bers in their organization, and among (he mem
bers of these orders, are all, or oearly all, of
our working temperance men, nnd against them
is arrayed an opposition, which will call forth
all their energies to overcome, for tbe spirit of
adulterated liquor is decidedly iu tho ascendant
at present, with us, and nnless its inroads npon
the health and morals of our citizens, are not
met by a determined opposition, a fearful bar

uiiunimous in the opinion that tho insulu
tion of the cable has become injured by
being suspended upon some projecting point
of o steep bank, and thus gradually injur
ed by its own weight. The soundings taken
a few hundred miles from tho Irish coast
show that a bank or steep range exists, the
hichest and lowest poiuts of which are
eight miles opart, showing a difference of
elevation of 7200 Teet. lint no one -con
form an idea of the nature of the gronud
in this intervening space of eight mileR
whether the sales oi tne sunmaruie moun
tain be broken by ravines or precipitous
cliffs, or whether it be a gentle 6lope.
The spot, which is obout 300 miles from
the Valentia end of the cable, is supposed
to be the one where the insultntion of the
