For the purpose of choo.ing three Delegates from each Congressional District to the Nation tional Convention, the State Central Commit tee recommended that District Conventions be held in each Congressional District, on or be fore (he 3lstof May. After consultation, the Central Committee of tnis lliirri.nn county have concluded that it would bs best for the Delegates to the Slate Convention, from this Congressional District, while in Columbus, to meet together and ap point three Delegates to represept the District in the National Convention ; and we are au thorised to make a proposition to thnt effect to the Central Coram ttces of Ji fferson, Columbiana and Carroll. It ihe ptoposition is, not acceded to, s'.eps should be taken to call a District Con vention immediately, It is hoped, however, that the suggestion of our Central Committee will meet villi f ivor, and a District Conven. tioi, which but few would attend, will be dis pensed with.

Upon consultation, the Central Committee of thin (Carroll) county accede to tho above propofiii'. n. to wit : that the Delegates to the State Convention? from this Congressional Dis trict, whilp in Columbus, meet together and a ipoint three Delegates to represent the Dis trict in the National Convention to bo held at Philadelphia on the 1 7 tit of June next; and we are authorized tososta'.e. i he Presidency.

The following account of a trial of scalns at the Fair of the American Institute, held in the Crystal Palace in New York, is from the Penn sylvenian. We take plertsure in transferring it to our columns, reflecting as it does, great credit upon a well known and successful New England manufacturing firm. We would add that the scales exhibited by the Messrs. Fair banks were token from their usual stock in New York, and sinco the account of the trial was published hnue.been adjudged the best, and a gold medl has been awarded for the larger one and a silver medal for the smaller one : 'We had the pleasure of witnessing, a fcjy days since, an interesting test trial of various weighing machines on exhibition at the Fair of the American Institute in lhe Crystal Palace. The trial was confined to the relative merits of the celebrated Fairbanks Scales, the sirdes manufactured by Duryee A Forsyth, of Ro chester N. Y., and a newly patented scale manufactured at Vergenn.s, Vt. To test the real meril of the scales, the committee placed upon the platform of a scale having the capaci ty of six tuns, a weight of 3330 pounds, and men removed tne weight lo various part, of me piattorm, With this weight on one cor ner of the Vergenne. Scale, the beam indica ted 8390 pound. ; when pmoed on the oppo site corner the beam indicated only 3377 pound., showing a difference of 13 pound. : and when " 8lo'e nothing. A thorough search was then removed to the pejiter of the platform the beam in.tituted beds were opened and examined, e .bowed 3387 poundi.

The commencement ef the has been quietsinoe, until yesterday, 23d; word , affair seems to bo as follows, an account came to town by a runner, from Lecompton, that Jones was on his way to Lawrence, with a body of U. S. troops. About a dozen of our men, including Wood, made it convenient to leave town, as we wished neither to get into difficulty with United Slates troops, nor surren der our men ; besides if Frank Pierce was go ing to sustain the border ruffians, we wished to make it a. troublesome for him as possible, it least a standing army must be stationed iu Lawrence all the time. In the afternoon, sure enough a company of dragoons, headed by post master Jones, arrived in 'own, hitching their horses near the Cincinnati House, they march ed to the residence of S. N. Wood, Esq. A file of soldiers were drawn up in front of the houso ; Jorifg nnd an office rentered, in search of Wood. A little boy, not five year old, met them althe door, withxlenehed fists, declaring "Yousha'rit have my Pa ;" which u.ade much amusement for the soldiers.

A FAM Within the Teach of Every Hair.. 27,000 acres of good Farm snd Cos! I .ami In Elk, county, Benxinger township, Pennsylvania, for sal., giv ing a farir of 25 acres for $2')0, payable iu instalments of one c'ollar per week, or at the same rate monthly. Farms of 50, 75, 100 or more acres adj lining in pro portion, Each farm fronts upon a road thirty feet iu width. The soil is a rich limestone loam, and especially a dapted to cultivation, as it ir neither hilly nor stony, but gently rolling or fine table land. Around and through this property there are already some 2i,().ill acres under cultivation, and its fertility has been estab lished from the crops produced, Upon this subject it is easy to be fully satisfied. Tbero is a ready cash market for produce which is much better than trade. It is the cheapest, as land of a similar quality is sell ing at much higher prices adjoining, and especially such as contains coal. The coal. This in particular U tho cp.il distiict, sev eral veins underlaying the whole property, and tbe at tention of miners, stud those acquainted with coal lands, is especially called to :t. It has the advantage of being the nearest to the great lake market, wi h which it will be connected by the funbury and Eiie Railroad now under contract and in course ot collec tion (rom Erie to iidgeway, WIS. descendi g gradij the whole way. The soil over bituminous coal is the best, for instance England and other countries, Tl o price per acre is trifling for the coal alone, as it hi I certainly, in so favorable al ca;ion within a short lime pay largely. This is important as an immense ccal trade will soon open. Four BMl companies have n' readv been 9 firted tn work mines in the vicinitv, and there are now Lf.ocn openii gs around .kt t'i jtV. The nabcr, stoek'i"! lers also receive There ii no reseivaMou whatever either of timber'or coal. Ii is very valuable and will pay for a great part of the land. On account of the excellence of streams there are fiuo opp r uuiiica for mills.
