The editor of the Canton Transcript copies our announcement of the decease of the Patriarch of the Zoaritea, and writes thus of that singular people. The sketch is graphical and truUlul: The Patriarch f Zoar now sleeps in the tomb. The history of this commu nity is of interest, as exhibiting tho mor al force of single individual as well as a practical demonstration ofsocif Usui.- "Wo bavo always boon impressed with the idea that this colony, (original- I" consisting of about two hundred indi viduala,) left Wurtembtirg, in Germany, on accouut of religious persecution.

"They embarked for the New World fron Germany in the spring of 1317, and landed in IMiiUdelphu in August ol the same year. W hen they lauded on our shores they were poor in purse and ignorant of the manners and customs of the Americans.

"Subject to alt manner of privationM and toil incident to aettiing in a new country, yet undisttntyed and with cheer ful hearts d'd thi eomuun.ity toil on, surmounting dülicu.iliee ainl obnliu-lea which wo.ild have appalled Iim hardy pioneers. For alltheir toil, piiv.uiuiiH, and inconvenience, tliey loll them.-olvei repaid in tho privilege of worshipping God according to the dictates ot their conscience, without any nieddüng privet to persecute, or tyrant to oppress. "This Community or association pre seat to ui the corroboration of some great truths. They commenced in ab ject poverty itceped in indbbtedncss, with no guarantie to pay their indebted aess, except their own proverbial econo my, and their own brawoylnd muscular Arms. In little moro than a quarter of . a century, by rigid application of max ims learned in Fatherland, they have by their industry accumulated property which is worth more than half a million of dollars. Tbey have adhered to certain fixed principles, and have ever held them sa credly in view, and now in the evening ol their life, they are enjoying the abun dant harvest of their early labor. But their Patriarch is with them no tnoe. lie has fulfilled his destiny, and his mission is apparent to every one who has arrived at that point in philoso phy which lurmshej us with an insight into the motives of mankind. Tho problem has been solved that a commu nity can exist in peace, quietness, hur inony and love, where a manifestation of the buer passions, j.tils, judges, jurors, and all the endless paraphernalia attend ant upon the administration of Statut Law are strangers. The problem h-is been solved, that tue doctrine of the Nazarene, "Love thy neighbor as thy self," and the new commandment which he gave his dUci(lcs "Love one anolh. er," are fundamont.il principles of socie ty; a perversion of thece doctrines are fraught with alt the evils we daily wit ness in society. Yet the Zoarits believe not in the mission of the Nazarene. Many entertain fears that the Commu nity will now bo dissolved. We ven ture to predict that so long as any of those bardy pioneers, who have borne the burden of the heat and tabor for one third of a century, exist, the community will not be dissolved. If it were dis aofred, ere twelve months it would again ' be formed. The ties, the trials, the as sociations, the labors, the sufferings of a lifetime are not dissolved In a moment. The Pioneers are too old to learn the ways of the world in the evening of their life. The prisoner who after thirty years confinement was liberated, after , enjoying his liberty two days, required to be sent back to prison it was his home and he desired no ether. The Zoar community is not a monar chy, but an (elective system in which fe males enjoyed an equal right with tho males. Poetical aad Practical.

In one of the early years after the crea tion of the world, man began to plant a vine, and Satan saw it, and drew near. 'What plantest thou, son of the earth! said tho prince of demons. A vine!' replied the man. What are the properties of thia treel' ' Oh, its fruit is pleasant to look at, and delicious to taste, from it is produced a liquid which fills the heart with joy.' 'Well, since wine makes glad tho heart of man, I will help thee plant this vine. Bo saying the demon brought a lamb and slew it; then a lion, then an ape, and last a pig, killing each in succession, and moistening the roots of tho vino with tho blood. Thence it has happened ever since, that when a man drinks a small portion of tho wine, he becomes jentlo andca-i ressing as a lamb, after a little more, i strong and bold as the lion; when he! takes stilt more, he resembles an ope in his folly, and absurd and mischieyou c tions; but when he Ii h swallowed it to j excess, he is like a j i wallowing in tho mire. ft7" A lad from ''(Jreen Isle," whose occupation was that of blucking stoves, ' fire places and stove pipes, bearing upon ! his arm a pot of blacking, with brushes and other implements n his trade, ad-; dressed a denizen of the city who waa standing nt liisi loor: j "Has your honor uny sjvo3 to polidh ; this in urn i ng!

The New York Economist runs a parallel between the United States Army, anu what it coats the country, and a Railroad army of like numbers,and the great gjod it is capable of accomplishing. It would be well for all political economists lo study well lbs picture. Here il is: The United Stales army numbers about 10,000 men, aud they cost the country last year $a,y5,Slb" for pay, subsislauce, cloth ing, &c. That is to suy, $;!J0 per man, or if we deduct the militia expenses, bOl) per man. It would puxzlu any one lo tell of what ser vice wore th oso inen, living ules.dy In bar rucks aud old forts, eating three meals per day, and turning out occasion illy to louoli their caps to their olhccrs. "The Illinois Central Railroad army numbers ten thousand men also, and they rrccivo from the company $3,700, 000 per annum, in return lor which they labor twclvo hours per day upon a work which gradually stretches itself though tho tnot fertile plains, connecting the great lakes with tho Ohio und Mississippi rivers, and ultimately with the Gulf of Mexico. Tho relative advantages ot those two armies to society, present an interesting matter for study, and are graphically sketched by the New York Post. The piospuclico building of lho great Central Kailroad of Illinois alone, hus added to the wealth ofthat titato, in Ihe appro priation of wild lauds, tho sum ot lorty millions within a strip of twelve miles in width, and the actual construction of tho road will bring to a ready market mil lions of acres of land now owned bytho General Government, which, were tho road not constructed, would lay wnsto for years to como. Tho Federal fiov. crnmeLt employs ten thousand nion, at an expense of eight millions of dollars to carry muskets. Tho Central Rail road Company employing ten thouuand men at less than four millions, confers a vast property upon tho Stato, upon tho Federal Government and upon thousands of fanners. Year after year, the Fed eral government spends its millions of dollars, cflectin? nothing, aud re- ultingiu nothing but tho turning loose of superanuatcd soldiers, mado paupers by a life ot idleness, to prey upon the industrious during the remainder of their existence. The Illinois company, by three years expenditure, establishes seven hundred miles of iron rails through prolific farms, many of them owned bj the persons whom they employed to build the road men of industry, vigor, wealth, and in telligence. The United States, in thir ty years, have spent $300,000.000, enough to build a doublo track to the Pa cific, and thiy have nothing to show for the money but some old forts, guns, tat tered uniforms.and demoralized veterans.

Fort Wayne Heads. We are happy in beingable to say to our readers, this morning, that the ter minns of tho Fort Way no road has been tin ally fixed at New Albany, and as we think on very favorable terms. The basis of theagreemcnt cr.t.-rcd in to between the comtnitteo representing the Fort Wayne company, and th com mittee on the part of our city is briefly as follows: The city of New Albany Is to subscribe in tho stock of the Fort Wayne road $300,000 and 300,000 in the Sandusky road. The stock already subscribed, or agreed to bo subscribed in the counties of Clark and Scott (including Jefferson ville.) ofthe Fort Wayne road amount ing to $450,050 Is to be equally divided I between tho two,. ay .5225,000 in each, j This makes tho joint subscription of the thrco counties, 6(025,000 tn the Fort Wayno road, and $525,000 in the San dusky road. In addition to this, the cit izens of Lexington and Scott county, pledge themselves for an additional sub scription of $50,000 in tho Sandusky road, thus increasing the stock otthat coinf any to $575,000. Should the coun ties of Clark and Scott fall short of tho $150,000 proposed to bo subscribed in the two roads, jointly independeutof the s?50.000 to be subscribed in the Sandus- Ky road, by the people of Lexington, then tho subscription of New Albany m.iy bo reduced pro rata, Jeffersonville, Charleston, und Lex- iiigton, uro to be mad e points on me two roudii. lho ro&da uro to pass over a common road bed, to bo gruded for a dou bl track as fur as Lexington, say 34 miles. The road bud to be made at tho common cost of the two companies, and t ) be owned in common. Iloth compa nies have the rlht to lay down a se pa rtite and independent track at any time but the Sandusky road takes prece deuce. In the event that the Fort Wuyne Company should defer laying down their track for the present, the San- dusky Company grants them the privi- lejo of using their track in common with themselves, upon tho payment of 5 per cent per annum of the pi ime cost of the same together with all her depo's, water stations &c, and 5 percent upon the cost ol all necessary repairs during the perl- od of joint occupancy of said track, the Sandusky Company reserving to tuem selves the right of terminating the joint occupancy at any time after rive years, by giving two yours notice. It is also agreed that if the Sandusky road should not be completed within a reasonable time, or should not terminate at New Albany, or the Sandusky Com pany should disagree to the stipulations, as to the joint occupaucy of the road then the city of New Albany is to sub scribe in the stock of the Fort Wayne road the sum of 8350,000. Such are briefly the terms of the agree ment, as entered into between the two committees, aud as approved by the City Council with only two dissenting votes. We may refer to this matter again and more fully, on our return from tho rail road convention at Eaton, which com mences to-morrow. New Albany Trib. (jAn amusing story is told of a young Parsian artist, who lately painted a portrait of a duchess, with which her frie nds were not satisfied, declaring that it was totally unlike. The painter, how ever, was convinced that he bad succeed ed admirably, and proposed that the cjucblion of resemblance or no resemb lance should be left to a little dog be longing to the duchess, which was agreed to. Accordingly the picture was sent to tho hotel of the lady next day, and a larire party assembled to witness the test.
