Amoko those who went up to the stock,

tapt. Mcl.tire and A. (1. Iiohin.on, Esq.
Tliey made a trip over the road from
L'richaville to Black River harbor "5
mile, west of Cleveland, and were great,
ly pleased with it in every particular,
and especially with it, excellent terminal
facilities for an immense business in coal
and ore at Black River. The harbor is
one of tho very best on the Lake, andia
owned by the railroad company. At tlii.
point the company have already completed
dock. and elevator, sufficient to load
and unload hundred, of car loads of
freight per day. It i, a|rao?, incrolible

Mef?nrfl. McLure and Kobinaon attended
the stockholders' meeting at Cleveland,
where the question of extending the road
from Uricharille to thi, city catno up,
and,where it wa. with entire unanimity,'
decided todo.o. How far this decision
will be affected by the success or failure
of the movement to raise $50,000 of
.lock in our midst, we are not informed.
We gather, however, from the report of
the proceeding, of the meeting that President
Chamberlain thinlca $50,000 a very
.mall amount to ask from Wheeling to
insure the completion of thi. important
road to Bridgeport. .It is .aid that he
named $1 50 per too for ore, delivered at
the Wheeling lurnaces, as a price that
be was^ willing to carry at on the
completion ot hi, road. Thi. he thought
would bo an invaluable reduction to
Wheeling, a, it would give her almost
unequalled advantage for the cheap production
of pig iron in the Upper Ohio
V alley. Tho price now charged by the
C.&P. road is " cent, per hundred to
Martin's Ferry and Bellaire, and $5 per
car additional to the furnace, oil thi. side.
The Tuscarawa. company propose to run
their car. on to data at West Wheeling
and deliver ore direct to thedifferont furnace
landings on both .ides of the river
at a lower price than the C. & P. now
By the way.it i, ?id that the latter
company .ire on inn iook 0111 lor una
new departure, and propose just on soon
a* it approaches consummation to make
the flame sort of a transfer of ore to our
mills and furnaces. They are not going
[ to do so, however, until compelled by
the prospective competition of the Tuscarawas
road. They will oslipply come
to that point of accommodation when
they can not help themselves. This
is the way of the world, and perhaps we
"have no-right to criticize such a policy,
but we may nevertheless observe that if
the Cleveland & Pittsburgh Company
were to make the proposed change right
away, they would retain a stronger hold
on the affections of tho iron men hereabouts
than they will otherwise find awaiting
them when the Tuscarawas Valley
| sets foot on our shores.
Manufacturing Notes.? The nail
mills at this point are having a very fair
trade and are not accumulating stocks.
The Association price adopted last April
still remains unbroken?viz?$2 85 for
10s. A meeting of the Association took
place at Pittsburgh on Wednesday.
There is a mill out at Bellville, Illinois,
opposite St. Louis, that ih reported as
giving trouble to the Association. The
mills at Pittsburgh are reported as having
a spasmodic sort of trade?some
times well supplied with orders and sometimes
short of orders. The Manufacturer
says that one of the moat encouraging
features of the trade Is the lightnesi of
stocks in first hands.
According to the Martin's Ferry Netm,
the Ohio City Mill is about to' pass into
the hands of Mr. Win. Clark and those
associated with him. Mr. Arthur McKee,
of this city, will be the traveler and manager,
and Mr. Joseph Norton will have
charge of the books. The Ben wood Iron
Works Company are still running the
mill, and also their own mill at Benwood,
which as yet has on only about 7$ machines.
The Wheeling Hinge Company are
iry busy running their factory to its'
lleit capacity. Mr. Hanson, .who has
it returned from a western trip, reports
ocks in the hands of jobbers very light,
bere has been a recent advance in some
asset of hinge goods,
Pig metal does not improve, and con- j
iquently manufactured iron is still sold I
- low figures. The Pittsburgh Manufac
rer says that current rates afford no
argin, and some manufacturers ire
ore inclined to stock up than to sell
icir goods. I
The indications^are that a good buai*
will be done all over the country
lis snrincr. Those who? have been out I
i the road tell us that everybody feela
)od over the settlement of our political
ilficulties, and the general idea i* that
ird pan in price* has been reached, and '
at henceforward there muat be an imrovement.
Thiy are trying Kev. Mr. McG'une, a I
reabyterian preacher, for heresy at Cinnnati,
and the Commercial calls attenon
to the fact that unless much care is |
iercise<i some of the witneaaea will be on 1
ial for the aame offence before the trial
over. For instance, when the Kev. Mr.
ills waa on the stand, Rev. McCune I
iked him whether he believed that a
an could be a Christian and not believe
the infallibility of the Bible. He relied
that a man could be a Christian, in <
in judgment, and not * # believe. The *
ev. Dr.Rkinnerctbeu^ut the question in
little different aliape, and addressed the
itness thus:
"Do you aa? that a man may be a t
lipiutinn onil lint LIUo?!?'ll>a
iity of the Word of God ?"
To this question Dr. Hill* replied : t
"I did not nay that; I Haid I thought a '
an might be a Christian without believ- ?
ig in the infallibility of the whole Bible?"
The Commercial thinks that if many '
)ch witnesses as Dr. IIHIm are brought
irward in McCune'd trial, much more !
image will be done by their confessions
tan by his alleged heresy. Jt comments
pon his admission as follows : i
"The doctrine of the plenary inspira- *
on of the Holy Scriptures, including "
>e books of the Old and New Testa* j
lents. was not so very long ago univer- ]
illy preached and universally accepted '
i evangelical churches. It is the key- 1
one of the whole elaborate theological 1
ructiire. Take it away, and the strucire
is in danger of crumbling pieceeal,
for who is to determine what part I
[ the so-called sacred writings is the t
ord of Ciod and what part the mere t
ible? This will never, never do. We J
uestion whether anything, qaid, sung or i
ritten by Brother McC'une could be so t
imaging as that single confession."

Washington, March 11.?Gov. Penn 1
ad other prominent Louisianians here
spect that after the adjournment of the j
cecutive session of the Senate l!ie Presi- (
ent will order the troops withdrawn from ^
le State House without delay. These
.ouiaiana conservatives say that so far I
s they have been able to ascertain the t
entiment of the several members of the
labinet, there will be no dissenting voice <
* such a policy.
The theory of the Conservatives ia that, >
noil the withdrawal of the troons, the )
dherenU of Packard will immediately
bandon him, and that the entire Pack- '
rd State Government will disappear; J
hat the legally elected members of both
be Packard and Nicholls Legislatures i

Assurances of the mo*t binding nature
lave been given by the Democrats that
rhen the troops are taken from the
ilate Houses in New Orleans and Columiia
there shall be no violence or outireak
of any kind. The understanding
lere is that the troops will certainly be

Washington, March 14.?1There is
onsidcrable talk here over the arrival of
he Bangor Whig, the recognized Maine
irgan of Blaine, with an article on the
layes Cabinet, in which there is a bitter
Lttack on the new administration. The
irticle appears to have been written beore
it wan known that the Senate faction
vould not prevail against the President.
"We are all utterly disappointed," says
he Whig, "in the hope that the rumors
fould prove to have been unjust to Presdent
Hayes, and that ho would be too
iigacious to be influenced by political
Mnionaries, and too conscientious to
gnore obligations to the great
party which did battle for him
ind elected him as the representaive
of its principles." Then it goes
>n to lament the' President's fatuity
n believing that he can build up
i personal partv. It is especially severe
>n Schurz and Key. but it has no compliuents
for any of the appointees, except
Mr. Sherman, and it sadly notes the fact
hat the seven men represent four Demo:ratic
and only three Republican States.
It closes as follows: "We have called it
he Hayes Cabinet because it is obviously
lot a Cabinet representative of the great
Republican iiarty. What the result of
his remarkable action will be remains to
>o seen."

A Proton! by While Republlcaun.
New Orleans, March 15.?The following
in a synopai* of an address adopted
by a meeting of white Republicans of
Louisiana held to-day:
An Aiijxal of Republiran* of Louisiana to
the Vitizena of the United Stolen:
We, the undersigned, representing the
Republican citizens of Louisiana, in our
Jistress appeal to the citizens of the legal
States to raise their roices to demand a
ipeedjr relief to protect us in the enjoy
jovment of tho sacred right to be governnl
by the officers elected by a majority
sf the loyal votes of the State. The inilmidation,
violence, outrage and murder
perpetrated on the Republicans in the
liferent parts of the State by the White
league Democracy are now matters of
jotoriety throughout the civilized world.
Hieir policy has been to mislead the people
in other States by reporting daily
rhat is known to be false, tlint
hey have control of the whole
)f territory except an acre of ground in
<ew Orleans, and that their authority is
ilone recognized throughout the State,
ind they ask to be let alone in order ;
hat the people may enjoy a local self;orernment.
The facts are that an ille- 1
;ul and armed military organization 1
hreatens the existence of a lawful gov- ;
rnuient. Instead of Governor Pack- '
rd's authority being acknowledged only 1
t the St. Louis Hotel, it is recognized in 1
he gieater part of the State outside of
sew Orleans. In at least 28 parishes of :
ho State tho Republican officers were
lected and are in the exercise of the 1
overnment of the State. Thirteen out 1
f seventeen District Judges outside of '
sew Orleans were elected bv the Rejnib- 1
jean*, and they have officially recognized
Jovernor Packard. These insurgents !
oast that they will force the Government 1
f the United States to abandon Governor '
