I (hi reference of the Governor, only for jmal or did he expect that any meaauro of re Jiff would be adopted. Of late year the par ty fen power ha demagogued so much upon the aotytttl of taxes, salaries, Ac, that the unso- ihiaticated, cannot tell when they make a dec aratiow n earnest.

The same citravagance runs through ev ery thing. Almost the entire proceeds of the public works are squandered The large amount of interest on the public debt has to be raised by taxation. It is not proper for mo at this time to discuss that question, but com pare the figures, of the proceeds of our canals under the management of the whig Board with he management of the present democratic Board. In 1847, the Canal Board wa whig and the gross receipts were over seven hundred thousand dollars and the next receipts, nearly five hundred thousand dollars, but last yesr under a purely democratic Board, the receipts gross were about six hundred thousand dol larj, and the txpenditures, about five hundred and fiftv thousand dollars, leaving a balance of about fifty thousand dollars as the nett rev enue. What caused this extrivagant waste of mon ey, no one pretends to tell. But it i gone and none but offlCM-holder are in any way benefit ed. The whius in this Legislature aie power lew. No measure of relief will come. The people mu.it groan on. No change will take place until there is a change of parties. Those who bear the burthens, must not complain, so long a the present party is in power. And tax payers who contributed to keep them in the ascendency, ought not to complain. I have made Jevery reasonable effort, to bring about measures of retrenchment, but I have been overpowered by numbers, and in despair 1 give it up, and await a change of rulers, which is as certain to take place as that au election will be held, to that lime, are we whodetirer. trenchment postponed. To that delay, y num bers we jare compelled to submit. I lie Two Armica. The Whig party has bien denounced for building up "monopolies," because it has fought for Internal Improvements, one of the abuses of which we admit, is monopoly, but without which our oountri would be a ilHi iinaa A nil without the Whig party or its equivalent-some party to build up, beautify and enrich the coun try, instead of tearing down and impoverishing, what would we have in the shape of Internal Improvements? Judging by the avowed senti mentsof the party in power.past and present, we should have ihe whole of Oregon or none.Cuba and a war with Spain, the whole of Mexico, and a small piece of South America- We should have no railroads, no turnpikes, no improvements in agricultureor manufuctures no home industry, no cultiv ation except for war. A standing army of a hundred thousand these warlike principles. They would eat out the substance of the country rebellion, anar chy, and finally despotism, would be the re- SUlt. We only say that without tho Whig party or its equivalent such would be the certain fate of our country. But there is, and must be such a party--Woe betide this country when such an influence ceases to be exerted. The following article from the New-York Economist will illustrate in some decree the practual operation of both political parlies: a 11c miuea amies army numbers aboutIO, 000 men. ami they cost the country last vear 08,226,34; for pay, subsistence, clothing. &.

The relalivetadvantage of these two armies to society, present an interesting matter for study, and are graphically sketched bv the New-York Post. The prospective buildir.g of the great central rail road of Illinois alone has added to the wealth of that State, in the I appropriation of wild lands, the sum of forty minions, wiinin a strip ot but twelve miles in width, and ihe actual construction of the road will bring to a ready market millions of acres of land now owned by the general goverment, which were the road not constructed, would lie waste for years to come. The federal government employs 10,000 men at an expense of eight millions of dollars, to carry muskets. The Central Railroad Com pany, employing ten thousand men at less than lour millions; confers a vast property upon the Slate, upon the federal goverrment, and upon thousnhds of farmers. Year after year the government spends its millions of dollars, effec ting notluug, producing nothing, aud resulting in nothing but the turning loose ofjdler to prey upon the industrious during the remainder of their existence. The Illinois Company, by three years ex pendituie, establishes several hundred miles of iron rail through prolific farms, many of them owned by the persons they employ to build the road men of industry, vigor, wealth, and intelligence. The United States In thirty years have spent $3,000,000,000, cnouah to build a double track to the Pacific and they have nothing to show for their money but some old forts, guns, tattered uniforms and demoralized veterans.

About which, how ever, there seems to be one prevailing senti ment; and that lo that wealth and aritiotrolie relative, art all sufficiently powerful in Ken tucky, to save a man "from the gallowa !" It seems that on the Snd of November last, W. II. G. Butler, a gentleman of fine educa- lion and a good character, was keeping a achool of superior grade in Louisville, and the broth- j houses, barns, awnings. Ac. er of vVard, (William,) was a pupil.

The teacher then chastised the culprit for breaking the rules of school and lying. The next morning Matthias went to a gunsmith shop, and purchased two pistols, and hud the gunsmith load them wilh buckshot, and in company with his brothers, R.

What an everlasting shame upon the fair fame of Kentucky ! One of her most intelli and usful citizens, cut down by the hand of the murderer and assassin, and a jury of twelve men, for the want of moral courage, say ameni What man, be he, intelligent, respectable, or an ornament to the society in which he moves, can feel securc.when such rowdies, rapscallions and ruffians, as infest Louisville, can with im punity, take the lives of her most reputable cit izens ? None but the "rich and high born." All others aie in danger of the murderous pistol 'or bowie knife; and whilst life is eking from the horrid gash, are pcrmiit;d to exclaim with poor Butler, " Oh, my wife and child I My God I I'm dead !" And then have a jury of Kentuckians, to eing the funeral dirge, and congratulate tho beroft widow and or phans ! DEATH ! Makv Ann Zollaus, a most amiable and respectable young lady of our town, came to a most shocking and heart rendering death on Tuesday last, at about eleven or twelve o'clock A.M. The facts seem to be as follows: She was living with Mrs. R. Crozier, in the absence of Mr. Crosier; Esq., nd went to the resi dence of Dr. D. A. Arter to assist Mrs. Arter in the discharge of her household duties, for that day, intending to return in the evening. And about fifteen minutes previous to her death, she passed into the medicine shop of the Doctor, and was thoughtless enough to taste the medicines in some of the vials and jars ; and amongst others she tasted that of the strychnine I And in a few minutes after wards sho felt the effects upon her system, and became alarmed. And in the meimwhile, Mrs. Arter discovered she looked ill, and made in quiry ot her, and she stated in substance, the had not swallowed any portion of the medi- . 1 ' cine, but alas noor mrl had tnUen t. fatal step, and was in the short space of fifteen minutes bound to leap the gates of eternity. Notwithstanding every effort was made by i Drs. Todd, Boeirel. and othe (Dr. Arter was absent at the time.) Truly "in the midst of life, we are in death." Contpirntors Convicted and Sentenced Our readers are probably aware that some months ago, four persons, whose names are Hagen, Law son, Davis and Morris, undeitook to prosecute certain banks in Allegheny coun ty, for issuing small notes of a less denomina tion than five dollars, contrary to the provis ions of a ceitain law of the State of Pennsyl vania. And after the commeNcement of the prosecution, against the banks, made certain sundry propositions to settle or compromise the offence wilh the banks for a large sum of mon ey, and thereby were themselves guilty of vi olating n certain other law well known to jur ists viz : in their offer to release the banks from the penalty, incurred in the violation ofa crim inal law. And wcre themselves in turn prose cuted for conspiracy against the county of Al legheny. Ana have had their trial, and a verdict of' guilty, rendered against them; whereupon their counsel made a motion foi a new trial, which was overruled. And Judgfl McClure has sentenced them to threb months in the county jail, and to pay $100 dollars each, and the costs of prosecution.

The 'Companion' has commenced the publi cation of a series of articles denominated the "Q of the Free Press." If its successor be equal to its predecessor, contained in lait week's issue of that paper, we advise without charp-e, that they be preserved for the special benefit 'of the contributors of that luminous Journal. The "word wise" portion of the editorial corps, of that paper, has spent some very pre cious moment 8, and no doubt pleasant ones too, in preparing those " dew drops and mint tulips of the English language."

The Christian JHadeni, The April No., of this interesting and valu able publication, has been received. ,lt con tains more than 40 pages of reading matter, and is, in the language of its Editor, "strictly a moral and religious work ; entirely free from sectarianism." The object of this monthly publication is "to take the place of the floods of immoral and fic titious works of the day," which we deem il well calculated to do.
