01 1 10 W IIIG CON VENTION.
The Whig Central Committeo of Ohio liavo isucd a call for the election of dele gates to the Congressional Convention on the first Monday of April. The 14th of that month id recommended na the time of meet ing; and each convention is to elect a dele gate and substitute to the National Conven tion. A mxss State Convention for the no mination of a Stato ticket and the Presiden tial electors is to be held after the National Convention. The committee, in their ad dress, remark: "This d ay, four years ago, the ball was set in motion at Philadelphia that ended in tho triumph of tho Whig cause in the last Pros- identhd election. Our prosects areas bright! now as they were then, if the elements of ; success bo only properly put iu motion. A Whig President was elected in '43 w ithout : the help of Ohio; and in this State we should learn wisdom in the ensuing contest from the eondnct of our opponents after the election I of 1840, who, though beaten as badly then ; as we were hist October, immediately rallied . lute men resoivea 10 conquer, anu cameu mo "io, iu it i Muiiusnmiv; w uwm uhjt i-m-Stato the next year. The full Whig vote of dilation as to the time it will tako a sail Ohio has never been polled since 1841, and at no time since have our opponents ever come up to that voto, but elected their State Ofli cers by a less vote than they polled in 1844, when they were beaten nearly 6,000 votes. Let tho Whigs of Ohio arouse and bring to the mills thc'20,000 voters that have absent ed themselves of late years, and Ohio will a gaiii resume her position iu tho victorious Whig column in 1852." Clergymen and Fanatics. A sharp cor respondent, writing to tho Journal of Com merce on the Temperance question and its clerical leaders, utters the following truths : "In almost all cases where clergymen take an active part in matters of this kind, they become fanatical, and call it religion. Religion means anything or nothing, but piety is Godli nes. For example, Charles the Fifth was called religious; ho fought fifty battles for religion. Cardinal Ximenes, Inquisitor Gen eral of Spain, was called very religious; he, during his administration, murdered 100,000 human beings, because they did not believe iu the idolatry of Rome. That great rascal tho Duke of Alva, when Viceroy of Flanders, was also religious; and Leo tho Tenth was mighty religions when ho directed Cajiton, his legate of Germany, to sell indulgences. I have conversed with many of the true friends of temperance, and they sincerely regret this Jesuitical, fanatical, pilitical nieas .ure. They are fearful that it will injure the cause of temperanco in tho same way that Abolition fanatics did the cause of slave emancipation." The following we copy from tho Nashville .American: "'Who Killed Cock Ronms?' Notwith standing the passage of the free banking bill, a villanous brood of stock banks came very jioar being inflicted upon tho Senate yester day. The bill had passed the House char iteriirgthreo banks. It passed the Senate villi amendments chartering three more. After a spicy debato in the House upon tho Senate message transmitting the bill and .amendments, thev wero made tho special .order for tho 3d day of July next "To Col. Woodard, of Robertson county, lielongs the honor of having killed tho mon ster. Ho fought it inch by inch, with ad mirable tact and skill and dexerves the thanks of the pecple oT (lie Stato for the effort Whig as ho is, his merit is greatly increased J'ur this act, and wo do Jiim all honor for it." Another Railway. Tho people in Northern Ohio have resolved to have a rail way from Cleveland by Chagrin Falls, War ren and Canlield, to Enon, on the Pennsyl vania and Ohio road. Upwards of $300,000 of stuck has been subscribed. TJie ladies of Chagrin Falls have taken sinne 2500 in atingfe shares a "leap year" movement that cvincus an energy not to be intimidated by ordinary obstacles. The New York Correspondent of the Plriladclph'm North American says: "Simeon Draper, Esq., wade the naiidsoim; sum of $20,000 by his recent purchase and sale of tho lots in Astor Place. Mr. Draper, 3ias it is stated, given away more than this amount within tho last five years." The same correspondent remarks; "Messrs. Jacob, Little & Co., tho well known and highly respected Wall street op erators have realized, it is said, some $250, 000 by tho riso in stocks,, and other lucky changes, within tho last three months. Del aware and Hudson, of which Messrs. Little & Co., held an enormous amount, has recent ly advanced twenty five per cent" AW. how unreasonable as well as unjiisla thin" it is for any to censure the infirmities of another when we sec that even good men aro not able to dive through the mystery of their own.

The Cubah Prisoners. Another Letter The last llayneville (Ala.) WaUiaian con tains tho following letter from young Pruitt, of Lowndes county, in this State : Vi-.o, Spain, Jan. 10, 1S52. Dear Brother: The English steamer being dne here today from Cadiz, on her way to Southampton, I tike advantage of the op portunity thus afforded to write home. I have no news that will interest you, save that I am in good Iiealth and will embark for New York sometime between this and the 1st of February, and hope to be able to see you by the 1st of April. AH tho American prisoners concerned in the invasion of Cuba, amounting to about ninety in number, are quartered in tins city, and have been comfortably provided for by the American Consul. It is almost an impossibility for one to write when fifty or sixty persons are around him engaged in making all kinds of noise. I have much to tell you, but you must wait patiently for my arrival. In the meantime, do not be uneiey if yon should not receive any further news from me, or I should fail to make my appearance at tho time you expect, for it is hardly probablo that I will write you vessel to cross the Atlantic. I return to mv native land a dearer lover of its soil and institutions than ever, for I have seen what I shall never wish to see again, the heavily-taxed, down-trodden, half starved poor of Europe, a people more to bo pitied than our slaves. Hoping that this will find you all well, and that ere tho lapse of many months we will meet around tho old family hearth, endeared to us all by a thousand associations, I remain your brother, JOHN T. ritUITT. Mr. S. L. Pruitt. Perfectionism and Bloomerism. There is a society of people, we learn from the Cin cinnati Enquirer, numbering some ono hun dred and fifty persons, in tho counties of Oneida and Madison, New York, who have adopted a code ot social morals to suit their own notions, and as their code differs very w idely from w hat society about them regards as even decent, of course their doings are not devoid of interest. They are represented by the Rochester Democrat as holding every thing in common, lands and tenements, cattle ami horses, women and children ! They are even ahead of Mormonism, for tho whole family of one hundred and fifty persons pile up m the same shiglo big room. Tho women wear their hair short, and their dresses short, too, after the bloomer skirt and breeches fashion. Tho prominent featuro of the "Perfection." Society is yet to be stated, they all hold to the "scriptural propriety and moral purity of promiscuous iiitcrcourscamong the sexes .'" This is the most notablo of all tho modern isms I Man's Weak Part. In the course of a book lately published at New York, entitled the "Reveries of an Old Maid," wo are told that tho weapons to subdue man aro not to be found in the library, but in the kitchen ! "Tho weakest part of tho alligator is his stomach. Man is an alligator. 1-et the young wife fascinate her husband with the teapot! Let her, so to speak, only bring him into habite of intoxication with that sweet charmer, nnd make honeysuckles clam ber up in his chair back and grow about tho legs of his table let the hearth rug be a bed of heart's case for the feet in slippers, and the wickedness of tho natural pnemy must die within him." What excellent wives somo of these old maids who write books would make! The papers are full of the details of the attempt to nssassinate the Queen of Spain. While leaving church with her infant in her arms, a Jesuit priest while kneeling, affecting to present a petition to the Queen, struck at her with a poinard; but owing to tho whale bones in her stays, the force of the blow was divided, and its force broken. The weapon consequently entered below the last rib in flicting a trivial wound. The villain was ar rested and proved to bo a rascal of the deep, est dye. A dispatch from Madrid announces his execution. Jackson in the other World. Tho rap ping or tipping spirits (we believe tipping is now the phrase) have revealed to eomo "o.ir cle" of believers out West, that General Jackson is in tho fourth sphero of spiritual existence, there being an indefinite number beyond. The St Louis Organ says that an old Jackson man on hearing this, at once pronounced the whole thing a humbug. Ho said Old Hickory wouldn't have staid till this time in tho fourth fephere he'd have whipped Ins way to the top ot the ladder. Mrs. Partington, in looking over tlio Price Current lately, came to the article of Molas ses, and exclaimed: "Seventy-fivo cents per cral Why Mess nie.

New Method or Amputating Limbs. Sonic operations have been performed lately at Vienna, by means of platina wire heated red hot, which has been found to sever the flesh with as much ease and celerity as a knife. One great advantage offered by this method is tho very slight effusion of blood caused by tho wire as n dividing instrument. Stumnno too Far. One of tho best jokes of the season is the statement that one of the candidates for Governor in New Hampshire, who is "stumping tho State," got some thirty miles into Canada, making speeches to the k'nucks, before ho knew ho was out of his own "bailiwick." Kentucky and the Presidency Louis ville Feb. 15, 1853. Tho Whig, citizens of Paducah, and several of tho adjoining coun ties, in general convention on Wednesday lust, adopted resolutions declaring the senti- ments ol that portion of the Stato in favor of John J.

Sam Slick. ITEMS. K known. Wood burns because it has the proper stuff for that purpose in it; and a man becomes renowned because he has the neces sary stuff in hint. Renown is not to be sought, ana all pursuit of it is vain. A person may, indeed, by skilful conduct and various urtiii cial means, make a sort of name for himself; but if the inner jewel is wanting, all is vanity, and will not last a day.

People who die pennyless, have this fact to console them that their children always in herit their property. With rich people the case is different, the most of their effects go to the executors. Men never get weaned. When they are babies, they suck their mothers; when middle aged, they suck "the old man;" when advanced in years, thev suck a long-leggd pipe.

Mr. Erskine, when a counsel in the Court of King's bench, told Mr. Jckyll, "that ho had a pain in the bowels, for which lie could get no relief." 'Til give you nn infallible specific," replied the humorous barrister; "get made attorney general, my friend, and then you'll have no bowels at all." Corn which is intended for tho market, should not be shelled until near tho time of sending it away; it should then be thoroughly dry, and carefully fanned from chiitf nnd par ticles of coli, because these substances are fre quently the origin of heat in shelled corn, from the fact of their being more Bubject to decay than the corn itself. Mrs. Oumy says she don't know what they want with a grand jury. She thinks that com mon juries nre grand enough her husband felt so grand when ho was on the jury, that nobody dared to speak to him for more than a month nftewnrd. A writer in the Nntional Intelligencer, on the subject of tho Mint and coinage, asserts that of tho total amount coined 7iot Jive per cent, of it it now in the country, and that near ly all of the new coins n . e never exposed to the light on this side of the Atlantic. A genius Down East has invented a new kind of a dwelling. They nre made of India rubber, and are so portable that you can carry a row of three-story houses in your hat. Dr. Beeswax, in his "Essay on Woman," says "I have made woman my study, for a series of years, but I never found one who stuttered. I meet with nny number of men, every day, who st-st-stnnuner, but never have I seen a woman who couldn't blow an unbro ken blast." In all divorce trials the jury should bo com posed of six ladies and six gentlemen. When a female is on trial, sympathy has more to do with tho verdict than testimony or common sense. Pleasant. To open your wife's jewel-box and discover a strange gentleman's hair done up as a keepsake. We know of nothing that makes an ardent temperament feci more "knifey." LiiiERALrrr.
