The following scrap ; of intelligence. for which we are indebted to that enter prising journal the Cincinnati -Commer cial, will cause a profound sensation of ioy to permeate the, entire length and breadth of the Sixteenth Senatorial Dis trict? : .. ' ' "We learn that Itubbeil's no. was not badly fractured, and that the wound Is already healed ' It is rare that so much comfort is con veyed in so short a paragraph. It comes like a poultice to heal the bruises of ma licious fortune. We would not if we could cast a doubt upon its truthfulness. We would not so extenuate the consola tion it brings to an anxious and sorrow stricken constituency, well knowing,, as we do, that the possible consequences of the permanent danger or disfigurement of the Senatorial nasal organ are too sad to be contemplated for a moment. We hope no one will mock our anxie ty by doubting this proposition. Shakes peare somewhere makes somebody in- j quire why it is that a man's eyes are ' placed on either side his nose, and the re ply is that it is so arranged in order that "that what he cannot smell out he may spy into." Such is the beautiful econo my of nature. But how on earth is a man, and especially a Senator, to smell out anything with a disordered and "de moralized" smeller ? What can our Senator's' constituency expect of him when half his functions are thus disor dered ? For is it not true that hat may be spied is often, as Carlyle would say, unsmellable. and what may be smelt unspyahle ? We therefore regard this attempt upon our Senator's olfactory powers as a con spiracy against his usefulness. The next strategic point of the conspirator no doubt will be the Senatorial optics. And so, if not checked, the process will go on until our Senator shall be robbed of his whole five senses, in fact reduced to a state of mere oblivion, "Sana teeth, sans eyes, sans tastesans ... everything.".. The necessary result will be that our District will be deprived of its equal representation in the Senate, and Re4 publican conventions of a vast .deal" of valuable counsel ' ' W'e therefore propose . tp discounten ance severely and frown down in theis incipiency any farther attempts to pros ecute this conspiracy. As an Irish mem ber of Parliament once said, we smell a rat,' we see him floating in the air,, but we shall nip him in the bud. We there fore solemnly adjure' our friend . Curtis, whom we know to be a gentleman and a scholar, that h,e s&ajl continently for bear. . ! - . ; Written for tha Delaware Uasatte, , PIONEER KSTCHSI OF WSI.A. ;.:. -:J WiRK. 90V9TTT. , ... SswU Ohi Introductory. The writer feels a reluctance in attempt ing' to rjortrav the earlv historv of Dela ware County, from - the insurmountable obstacles which arise in his pathway at the start; 1 he details for an anthentic, succinct, and reliable record, lie deeply buried, are widely scattered, and 111 many instances live onry in the memo ries of the pioneers. To excavate the facts, to collect the items, to conler with the pioneers is an onerous task, demand ing an amount of time, and patient re search, from which the author's impecu niousity may cause him to shrink. On the other hand, he is deeply conscious that the Pioneers, "Like the speed of a hreat h,or the dash of a wave. Are passing from life to their rest in the grave," and much that is of interest to the pres ent generation, and will be of pressing importance to future ones, must be speedily rescued or soon lost in oblivion. rience, not without hesitancy and foreboding, but with deliberation, he attempts a series of sketches of the early settlers, their privations, prosperity, and progress ; not always in chronological order, but abounding in detail ; hoping by his effort and example to incite others to assist in his rehearsal. Settlement in Berlin, The original purchase was four thous and acres, or "section four, township four, range eighteen," from Government by Joseph Constant. The deed for this tract is signed byjohn Adams, the sec ond President. The price was $2.00 per acre. The purchaser was a Colonel in the Seminole war, accompanied his regiment south, was taken ill, returned to his home at Peekskill on the Hudson, where he shortly afterwards died. Pre viously to his death he donated to David Lewis, Sr., fifty acres of his Buckeye possessions. The latter portion of the original purchase, comprises a portion of the farm now owned by G. V. Ridg way Esq., - "Section three" adjoining four on the north was the original purchase of Col. Byxbee one of the early settlers of the county and father of Moses Byxbee still living in Delaware. Of these "Pioneers" we propose to write in detail in a subse quent sketch. ; " inese sections cmoracc me enure eastern portion of Berlin township and lie on both sides of ahim creek. Bottom lands in these sections, particularly in section "four are among the best farm lands In the county. In -the year 'eighteen hundred and five, "John Johnson and Joseph Eaton, Sr.; father of the late James Eaton, with their families, made a settlement on the Byxbee section. In the same year David Lewis Sr., with his sons David, Isaac, and Chester made a settlement on the t n,tRnt purchase. ' They were natives of Waterbury Conn. In Salem parish, now Naugatuck. They erected rude cabins, cleared small spots, planted pota toes, corn and pumpkins, and lived in almost Selkirkian solitude. The nearest neighbors were at Worthington and Lib erty settlements. They went by Indian trail to mill at the latter place. Game was plenty. Deer and turkeys abound ed. Wild hogs and occasionally a bear were killed. The wolf and raccoon were common. On the twenty-ninth of Sept. eighteen hundred six, Joseph Constant Lewis, the first white child in this colony was born. Mr. Lewis, is a Baptist clergy man, resident at vv ashington U. In the vear 1S07. Asa Scott rhiio Hoadley and Lovell Caulkins joined the j setucrs in oerun, jvir. uiuimns is sun living on the farm which he originally purchased. He is in his eighty-fifth year. He staid in the wilderness a year and started a home, clearing three acres of land, raising corn and hogs to eat it, planting a nursery, etc, etc. In com pany with Lanson Lewis, he returned to Connecticut for his family the following year. 1 heur hrst day s journey on loot,, by Indian trail to Frederickton. At the end of the second day's journey they camped with the Jerometown Indians. The third night they slept alone in the woods.' ' On reaching Cleveland they engaged to take a drove of enttle to Buffalo. From thence they "walked to Black Rock where they were enabled to take a boat for Oswego, from whence the journey was soon completed. Mr. C retuaned in eighteen hunarvii nine, together with his father, Roswcll Caulkins, and his familv, Samuel Adam Jonathan Thompson, their families, ami others. Ot trrose more recently decer n ed, Chloe Scott, wife of Asa Scott, din! in the year eighteen hundred sixty, age i eighty-nine. David Lewis Jr. died in eighteen hundred and sixty one.

Early Tti lia Delaware County, wlnlceneti or Pioneer Interesting Kt Life. School Churches, Iinprave aacntSt sVc. Eds.- Gasette : Our big sisters with their grandeur had well nigh awed us to silence, Late as it may seem, we would timidly elevate our frowry heads a little above the debris of the beech forest, and with a sensation about the knees akin to that experienced by Belshazzer, just in timate that our beloved little Trenton lies between Porter and Harlem, with her eastern line touching the alluvial soil of tamous Old Lickine We have our pioneers of whom we are justly proud. One who came here in the year 1817, but 16 years ot age, and with nothing but the clothes he wore, is now worth not less than $30,000. We had our landlords trom JNew jersey who knew just how to keep a tavern, and later quite a colony settled in the northern part of the Township from the little Blue State where they had eked out a scanty subsistence by carting wood from the mountain. Many the tardy villager whose morning nap has been cut short by their "gee whoe !" They imported those habits of industry, and many of them now count their acres by the hun dreds and their dollars by the thousand. We had a colony from Ithica, New York who settled in the south, and one from Pennsylvania in the west part of the Township, all stalwart men well calcula lated to cope with a gigantic wilderness, vv e would not lorget to mention among the early settlers in our neck of the woods Gratrax who wore the ' veritable "leather breeches full of stiches," whose large and generous heart beat beneath a fawn- skm vest and whose head was adorned with. a coon-skin cap. There was one farmerwho ran two large asheries and supplied the town of Delaware with salt and window glass for more that 1 2 years. Those articles were wagoned from Zanes viile. . , : . . In those days of primitive loveliness, whea the young people of Delaware and vicinity were married, they did not take the cars to Cleveland or Cincinnati, but theirs was a bridal party indeed and in truth. They were mounted on horses, bridle in hand, and often journeyed along bridle paths. . We recollect such a party from Delaware en route tor Gran ville, which stopped at the wayside inn for rest and refreshment. One mirthful young lady wished some bread and milk; the land-lady, a delicate woman with sweet blue eyes, who had seen but twenty summers, produced the lacteal fluid in a china bowl accompaincd by a bright silver spoon and slices of snowy bread. This was not the tin cup and corn bread the fair bride expectedto find in the wil derness, hence she ate her lunch, in silence to'tHe great" arnii jeifient of the party. The bride of that day is still a resident of this countv, as beautiful an old lady as she was then a charming bride. A little light hath shone in dark places. We have sent forth ministers and law yers, and more recently a missionary of the Wew Order to the benighted people of our State Capital. We have a Chris tian church, one Methodist, one United Brethren, one Presbyterian, with a neat parsonage, and two of the New Dispen sation where the faithful Nasby might have found a pleasant retreat when so unceremoniously ejected from Pepper s Tavern. Here could he sip his punch in peace on a salary of not less than thirty dollars a year, with but one draw back to his felicity he must needs buv his whisky in the village of Sunbury, as none ot that inflammable beverage is sold within our borders. Many of us are fully persuaded that there is for our Republic no surer founda tion than education, and there are those in our midst who can see no necessity of educating more than one person m even' ten. Full well does that party whose emblem is the most poisonous reptile known wnerem is their strong tower, the very foundation of which is ignorance. In passing many of our plain substan tial farm houses we have heard the hum of the spinning wheel and the click of the sewing machine blended with the sweet notes of the piano, combining the useful with the ornamental. Our institutions of learning are all very plain and were we in possession of one three stories high surmounted by a dome and historical bird we would not wish to place it before your mind's eyeuntil that aencate organ Decome irritated.. The coming season C. Murphy Esq., will erect a splendid brick residence upon a hill of mountainous proportions in this land of dead level. Since our farmers have been relieved of wool on the brain and the erection of the cheese factory within a few steps of our western line many of them are violently attacked with kine pox which threatens to assume a chronic form. With this exception we are a healthy people. We have been readers of your excellent paper since we were able to climb upon a beloved par ent's knee, and with difficulty make out the large lettersj therefore we hope you will have patience with an Old Subscriber. Hubbell thinks he could have whipped Curtis, but he wasn't able to make up his mind whether to hit him with his right hand or his left, and when he tried to gain time in .the usual way, by dodging.

All was paid out of the surplus revenue. He also said that Secretary Boutwei.l was confident he could now negotiate bonds at less than five per cent. JEW ADVERTISEMENTS.

Thus the great interests, both general aud local, which demand the completion of 'lie Chksapkake axd Ohio Rau.koaii to the Ohio River, afford the surest guarantee of its success and value, - nd render Is the most Important and smbat&ntlal Rail road enterprise now In prosjress In this Comntry. Its superiority as on Kast and West route, and the promise of aa immense and profit able trade awaiting its completion, have drawn to it the attention and co-operation of prominent Capitalists and Railroad men of this City of sound Judgment and known integrity, who.-e connection with it, to gether with that or eminent citizens and business men of Virginia and West Vir ginia, insures an energetic, .tauarable and successful management. The road is completed and in operation I from Richmond to the celebrated White 1 Sulphur Springs of West Vireinla,227mile.x, j and there remain bat 200 miles (now par- 1 tially constructed) to be completed, to carry I ir . th r.rrnsori rerm'nn.. nn th rihtr. iluo proposed term.nus on the Oh ( River at, or near, the month of the Big Sandy River, 150 miles above Cincinnati, j and 3o0 miles below Pittsburg. Lines are now projected or in progress ; through Ohio aud Kentucky to this point, i which will connect trie Chesapeake and Ohio with theentfe e BUrMd systems of the West and Southwest, and with : the Pacific Railroad. i Its valuable franchises and superior ad 1 vantages will place the Chesapeake and Ohio 1 Railroad :Company among the richest and ' most powerful and trustworthy corpora tions of tbe country ; and there exists a present value, In completed road and work done, equal t the entire amount efthc mortgige. xne ant ails or the Lotii have been ar ranged with special reference to the wants of all classes of Investors, and combine the various features of convenience, safety. and protection agalust loss or fraud. The Bonds are in denominationsof 1000, 500 a otl $100, They will be Issued as Coupon Bonds, pay able to Bearer, and may be held in thst form; or The Bond may be registered in the name of the owner, with the coupons remaining payable to bearer, attached, the principal being then transferable only on the hooks of the Company, unless reassigned to bear er ; or The coupons may. be detached and can celled, the Bond made a permanent Register ed Bond, transferable only on the books of the Company, and the interest made pay able only to the registered owner or his at torney. The three classes will be known respec tively as : 1st. " Coupon Bonds pay able to Bearer.' ad. "Registered Bonds with Coupons attached." 3d. "Registered Bonds with Coupons detached." And should be so designated by Corre spondents in specifying the class of Bonds desired.

The interest Is payable in May and No vember, that it may take the place of that of the earlier issnes of Five-Twenties, and suit the convenience of onr friends who al ready hold Central and Western Pacifio Bonds, with Interest payable in January and Jnly, and who may desire, in making additional investments, to have thelrlnter- est receivable at different seasons of tbe year. The Loan is secured by a mortgage upon the entire Line of Road from Richmond to the Ohio River, with the equipment and all other property and appurtenances con nected therewith. A. Sinking Fund of 8100,000 per annum is provided for the redemption of the Bonds, to take effect one year after the completion of the Road. Tbe mortgage is for Slo.OOO.OSO, of which 2,000,000 will be reserved and held In trust for tbe redemption of outstanding Bends of the Vfrrna Oentrat Railroad Company, now merged in tbe Chesapeake and Ohio. Of the remaining 313,000,000, a sufficient amount will be sold to complete the road to the Ohio River, perfect and improve the portion now in operation, and thoroughly equip the whole for a large and active traffic. I The present price Is 90 and accrued Inter est. ... , . . A Loan so amply secured, so carefully guarded, and so, certain hereafter to com" mand a prominent place among the favor ite securities in the markets, both of this country and Europe, will be at onee appre ciated and quickly absorbed. .
