Whig Financiering-Why the Tax es are High T - - - The following important facts, id relation to Whig Financiering, we published last fall, and as the Fusion papers, at this time, nave a gieatdeat to say in relation to "high taxes" and ''locofoco extravagance," the article will be found peculiarly appropriate in the present juncture of affairs: . av, . The Whig leaders ask the people at the coming election again to entrust the State government into their hands as the only party capable of managing its affairs. - This comes well from a party, the blunders and dishonesty of whose leading men. have so largely increased the State debt, and whose financiering at one lime so shook the cred it of the Slate, that Alfred Kelley, a leading Whig, then one-ofthu Canal Fund Commis sioners, made mouey by a bonus which he received torKoiny; the security ol the treat State of Ohio that she would pay the inter est on her State indebtedness. ' - ' C 'As a sample of whig financiering we will give a few facts from the record. In 1840 tile Whigs rode into power on the' hard ci der hurra, and Alt. Kelley, Gustavus Swan, N. H. Swaynb, 8ll of Columbus and.nll leading Whigs, succeeded to the "financial management of the State, as Commission ers of the Canal Fund. The credit of the tate was then good her interest had been punctually paid, and her stocks and credit stood as high as any in' thu market. ' By their management or mismanagement tney sold State stocks amounting to 1 ,023,- 800 at rates running from 70 to 50J cents on the dollar,' and by which operation the State lust, the large sum of FOUR HUN DRED AND THIRTY-TWO THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED AND ONE DOLLA.US AND TWELVE CENTS, which huge a mcttnt is added to the Slate debt, without the State receiving any benefit therefor, and is to be paid by the taxes of a clieated peo ple, whose only fault was their misfortune in ha ing Whig rulers. It was at this time, when the Barings' and other English Stock jobbers had so swindled the Slate, and bought her stocks tit but little over one half the amount called for their face, that anoth er creditor of Ohio, justly alarmed for fear the State would repudiate, got Mr. Alfred Kelley, one of the Commissioners, who had thus sacrificed the State credit and the mon ey of the people, for a consideration in Mon ey, to go the security of Ohio that the semi annual interest on her State debt would be paid, and the result was, that whi! the peo ple of Ohio losijnear ONE-HALF MILLION DOLLARS, Mr. Kelley pocketed his bonus and thus made money by ihe operation. The peup'e of Ohic, indignant at the out rage, and i'-ai in g still greater losses by these Whig leaders, burle l that party from power and tlit! credit of Ohio again rose, ami un der Democratic rule it stoo;!,ns it now stands as good as ihnt of any Suite in the Union. A train Whigirery g it power: The peo ple Here taxed heavily in provide mean to pay off the State debt as it became due ami to proiide means to pay the inii-res'. The money fothe former purpose was placed in the Sia'e Treasury, there to remain until sacredly ;jm'r to the object for which it was raised. This di I not suit Whig tinun-cit-rs and the Hoard of Fund Coinmi-Moiiers, I'oiisisting of E- N. Sill, as acting, and A. A. j B.iss mid John Woods, as advisory members of the B jard ot Canal rund Commissioners, notonlv without authority but in direct vio bvi-.n of law, loaned ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND. DOLLARS of the people's money thus raised by taxation, to a rotien insurance company in Columbus. So se cret was the mailer kept, that nothing was known of it until the Democracy in 1&51 carried the St ile and swept out the Whig otticers and then, tins Whig insurance com pany xp(oiled and thus the one hundred thousand dollars, thus loaned w.is lost, and unless it can be recove-ed from the Fund Commissioners anil their sureties, (and we are glad to hear that suit to recover it has been commenced by the Attorney General,) it will be a total loss. . Here nre two samples of Whig Financier ing by which J IV Jti UUflUUlilJ AJill THI1UT-TWO THOUSAND AND FIVE HUNDRED AND ONE DOLLARS AND TWELVE CENTS, has been lost to the Treasury of Ihe State, and all ef which has to be made up by taxes drawn from the pickets of the Farmers, Mechanics and oth er citizens, .;"'" . ' ' ' , The Whiit leaders abuse the Tax law and roundly assert that, the taxws arc too high that they are oppressive on the people. Grant that they are higher than they ought to be grant .that they are oppressive, it is the Democracy, not the Whig who have a right .to complain, for if Whig Financiers had not squandered the money of the peo ple had they not loaned it to insolvent insurance companies there would have been no, necessity for such" high' taxes, for ' then this FIVE HUNDRED' AND TIIIRTV;TVVO THOUSAND DOLLARS would have remained in the State Treasury or have been applied to the payment of 'tlie State debt and the , laxes ot the people would have been lessened that amount. , ,When the leaders of the Whig party prate to the Democracy about high taxes, remind them of ihe financiering of Messrs. Kelley,' Swan and Swaytie, And "of the loans made without authority, of law by Messrs. Sill, Woods nnd Bliss, and tell them that increas ed taxation was a necessary consequence of the squandering of the people s money by the Wnig leaders. Whin they ask the people to change their present faithful servauts and to put Whigs i ; their place, that they may re-enact the scenes of IIS41 and of 18 19, tell them as the Peruvian patriot, (old the Span ish invaders, that "we seek no change, and least of all such change as this would give US.'' 111: '(.. -,-, I; ,.!! ... ... , , , ,r How TO do up Shirt Bosoms'.

Mr. Editor : In the midst of the uni versal -gloom on account of . the general drought over our country, by which the fall crops have been to generally cut off, it may be gratifying to your readers to learn that within sitxy days (in all human probability) Pittsburgh will be brought into direct and easj connection with one of the most fertile valleys of the west, from which she has been hitherto entirely cut off. ,..; I allude to the valley of the lowerTusca rawas, and upper Muskingum, in the State of Ohio extending from Urichsvilleto Dres den, wl ich is 16 miles above ZanesviJIe, and at the head of ilack water navigation on the Muskingum river. The Steubenville and Indiana Railroad enters the valley of the Tuscarawas, near Urichsvillc, and pass es thenco down it r far as Dresden, being about fifty miles of its extent, thence pass es the valley of Licking, near Newark. Hav ing recently travelled over the line of the Railroad, and observed this magnificent val ley, a brief description of it, and its products mry not be without interest 5 V The width of the valley is, 6n an averflge, about one mile its margins formed by high hills and its nreadividtd b) the Tuscarawas river, which, alter receivini the Nalhond- ing at Coshocton, assumes the name of the Muskingum. Theentlie valley is an alluvial formntijn, and bein subject to an annual overflow its soil is as fertile as tlw valley of the Nile, and as inexhaustable and like the valley of the Nile it may be worked for tnousands ot years and still be the 'land of cjrn. Uwin-to the annual denosits made upon its surface by the overflow, iis fertility is yearly renewed, and a virgin soil is sub ject to the plow for every crop. , Drought has very little effect upon the corn crop raised ou such a soil. Hence, allough they have had as little rain in the past summer, in this valley, as in many other parts of the west, where tho corn crop is said to be al most an entire failure, the farmers through this entire valley will have their usual im mense surplus. I saw on the firm of my friend, Geo. VV. Cass, E"q., near Dresden, one large corn field which was estimated would produce 100 bushels to the acre 'this year. I asked Mr. Cuss how long this field had been cultivated in corn, and he informed me that this was the 30th year since the field had been cleared, and in that time had been produced 28 crops of corn and two crops of wheat. This is what our 'book farmers' term the 'skinning system' of farm ing but such land as this bids defiance to all attempts to 'ukin' it. The above field indicated a larger product than the aveiage fieldo of tho valley but only because it hud beet) more thoroughly worked--for even here weeds and coin do not succeed well togeUier. My estimate of the average pro - duct of the entire valley is GJ bushels to the acre. Ir 50 miles Ions', and one mile wide, we embrace an area of 32 000 acres and if we add the numerous tributary valleys such as the Walbundiug, fcc , Au'., we may embrace 50,000 acres of alluvial land and supposing three-fourths of the area to be in corn, and the product to be 70 buels to the acre, we have a gross yield ol 2, 250,i '00 bushels of Corn. I may be asked. wht has heretofore been done with this corn, and to what mar- ket has it been carried? There are distilleries along this valley which convert, eacn one of them (and how many there are 1 cannot say) from 500 to 1000 bushels of corn daily in whisky. Large quantities are also fed to cattle and hogs. The Ohio Canal has carried the sur plus to Cleveland. Tho Steubenville nnd Indiana Railroad traverses this valley opens it to Pittsburgh and there remains only about 30 miles of the track-layipg to cotnplet-S' this road fiom Steubenville to Dresden the grading being iinMied, and the iron delivered along the line. . ,: ,. . . ;: lias Pittsburgh nny interest in the com pletion of . the Steubenville and Indian Railroad? lias she taken any inlerent in it?

Many persons had not heard a boat whistle for so Jong, that they scarcely knew what manner of sound it was, while others said it sounded like a steam boat's whistle, and broke for the rbarf to see what was out.

Hon Joseph R. Swan. This gentleman is the nominee of the Fu sionists, for supreme Judge. He is now a rabid anti-Nebraska man and expects Free Soilers to vote for him simply because be bawls out "anti-Nebraska." That our Fre Soil friends may know someting about Mr. Swan's former course and the position he oc cupies upon questions connected with slave ry, we give place below to a resolution pas sed at a Convention held in Columbus on the 14th day of February . last, over which Tii presided. , The Chairman of the commit tee on resolutions was John W. Andrews, Esq., a regular ffhig. The following is one of the resolutions passed, as we find them published in the Ohio State Journal.- Resolved; .That this meeting is disposed, in good faith, to stand by the compromise of 1850; and tl at we intend o far as in us lies, to see to it that they in like good faith str.nd by the compromise of 1820.'' : This resolution pleged Mr. Swan, and the wbolq .convention r to stand by the compro mises of 1850," which consisted of bills or ganizing the territories of New Mexico nnd Utah, without the Wilmot proviso nnd with the fugitive slavelaw. Yes, Mr Swan was disposed to stand by the .fugitive thive law, a thousand times mole obnoxious to Free Soilers than, the Nebsaska bill; and now he asks Free Soilers to forget everything and rush to his support because of bis bawling out anti-Nebraska. And we have other gentlemen nearer home pursuing precisely i a similar course. Mr. Lckley ot this coun ly, then iu httendence at Columbus as mem ber from this county, attended the same meeting, voted for the same resoluticn yet now lie bawls out "ami iNebraska" . and would like to be a candidate for Congress upon such an issue. 0 shame upon such deruagogueism. Is there a consistent Free Soiler in this county, or district, who will so far stupify himself to vote for men who only last February, during the pendency of the Nebraska bill, declared their adheuoc to the compromise measures of 1 850, passed under the i'illmoro administration? We do not believe there is. ' Such conduct displays 'glaring colors the utter hypocricy and i dishonesty o. these men. Their conduct is in perfect keeping with that of the whitr leaders of Ohio generally. Whigs profess to be very anti-Slavery just now and willing to fuse with Free Sutlers wherever they think they can beat a democrat.' But in a whig district they are bauds off. In Chilli cothe district, in this State, Mr. John L. Tay lor, a whig, has been the Representative in Congress the last forty year. He voted for the compromise of luoJ, including the Fu gitive frlave la'v. lie was renominated by the whigs and elected At the last ses- ! sion ol Congress he voted (ujulimt the repeal : of the Fugitive Slave Law, and now he is renominated a second time, by the wings of nnd will be again elected by thvm.

Every person writing from Kansas ssserts in the most positive terms that slavery will not be introduced into that Territory; and the case the same with regard to Nebraska. Notwithslanding this evidence, however, all the free soil papers, nnd a large portion of the northern whig press, persevere in ex pressing a contrary opinion hoping, doubt less, by a continual reitaration of averments, that the newly-organized Territories will certainly be slaveholding, to induce a belief to that effect in the minds ol some of their readers their object, in pursuing this course, being to advance the accomplish ment of certain political objects. That some foolish people will be gulled by their confi dent assertions, is highly probable, but that any person possessed of common sense will be deceived by such evident misrepresenta tions is hardly within the range of pos:bil- The following extract from a St. Louis correspondent of the New York Tribune a paper entei laming the most rabid, abolition views exhibits in a true light the feeling of the people of Missouri lelative lo the intro duction pi" slavery into Kansa: "Here let me say a word to the men of the North who intend to settle in Kansas: "While I would not abate one jo' or tittle of my principles, nor sacrifice them to any time serving policy, and while I would not hesitate to proclaim them boldly and ear nestly, when the occasion shall demand it, of which each person must judge lor himself, yet my advice is, by all means, forbear ut teiing hot and angry words. They effect no good whatever, but tend only to exas- j perate the feelings of the slaveholder and southern 'men trenerally. It is my earliest conviction that a large majority of the people of Missouri are uot only willing hut eager that Kansas shall be secured lo Freedom. But if they once get the idea that organizations are formed 1.1 the East for the purpose of in teitering with what they call their legal rights in the Slate of Missouri, such an 111 tense degree of excitement will be raised as must necessarily defeat, or postpone indefi nitely, tne accomplishment of our objects.- It s part of the few fire-eaters to excite this belief among the well disposed citizens, and the utterances of some few impetuous men of the North in regard to the assistance which they mean to give to runaway slaves in this vicinity, have ruade the story proba ble. "Now, freemen of the North, come into this Territory peaceably and quietlv, enter tuining your own sentiments, and acting up to them; but inteitere not at all, or pro claim that you are going to interfere, with the legal rights of any citizen of any State. Come as citizens of the United Stales, with all the rights appertaining lo that charac ter, determined to enjoy and defend them in a legitimate, miiuner; then you wijj be wel comed by those very men who, you mav at first suppose, would oppose ycu to the death." The Milwaukie Sentinel, also a sheet with freesoil predilections publishes a coinmuui cation from a gentleman who has recently traveled over a great portion of Kansas and Nebraska, and who, the Sentinel stales, "takes a great 'uterest in seeing them set tled by a free population " We give an extract from lids communication: "The Missouri slaveholders are not organ izins societies for the settlement of Kansas and very few slaves will be taken from eith er Missouri or Arkansas to that Territory. I conversed with many slave owners in Western Missouri, and, without an excep tion, they told me that they desired Kansas to be settled ns a free State." D?es this testimony look as though Kan sas is certainly to be a slaveholding Terri tory.'' Detroit Free Press. Th9 Fusion don't Work. The Logan Gazette, one of the few Whig papers that has been throwing hotshot into the Fusion Camp since the Columbus Con vention, in a late number, speaks thus: The Fusion don't work well. There is dissatisfaction in theRichlnnd district. Sher man, the anti-Nebraska Whig, is the candi date igainst Lindsay, the present member. Lindsay by the way, voted against the the Nebraska men in all stages of the Bill. There is trouble also among our neighbors of the Green and Clinton distriat. Harlan is the regular anti-Nebrsska candidate. Porbasco, another anti -Nebraska man thinks he ought to have been nominated, and char ges fraud on Harlan and his friends. In Clinton county, the Free Soii pper exerts its influenco to prevent any lusion between its friends and the Whigs. Amid so much controversy and dissatisfaction, we fear that Judge Swan's election is endangered. Tim Corn Crop op the Usited States.

To Destroy House Ants The best way to get rid of antsis to set a quantity of crack ed walnuts or shell barks on p'.atts, and put them in the closet and places where the art congregate. They are vary fond of these, and will collect on them in myriads.

The Vermont Patriot draws thefollowiug parallel between the action of the opponent of the demociacy now, and the action of the opponents of democracy in the days of the Hartford Convention: The Hartford convention was called, a mong other things, "to check the encroach ments of the slave power," which it was said the purchase of Louisiana was intended t advance, and which Mr. Jefferson and the democratic party were accused of secretly aiding. And this was to be done by ths formation of a grand sectional northers party, whose object was treason to ths 5'a es and a dissolution of the Union. Tho Northern men who favored tho convention denounced their Southern party friends, and cutting loose from thera attempted mag nilicient coalition of men of all parties, to carry out their, treasonable schemes, under the specious pretext of checking the advatrn f the slave power and meeting the overwhel ming influence of the South in our national councils. What is the difference between the origin, the objects, and the pretexts of the old and the nets Federal parties? Nonc at all! Now, us then, disappointed office seekers nnd broken-down party hacks, are the leaders: traitors, tories, fanatics, infidels, athiests, the tools, the pretext, the slave power and the inllutuiice of the South;'a section party, the instrument; and a dissolu tion of the Union, the object? The instincts of the men, the material, the tools, the pre text and the object are identically the same. jf"The Wooster Democrat says.

OnS iturday morhing she procured a chain and fastened it to a limb of a cherry tree in the yard, ascended the tree to the branch and swung herself off. When found, she was quite dead and cold. Disappoint ment in love is assigned as the cause vl this melancholy act. Her feelings had been trifled with. Her deep undying woman's love was sacrilitvd at a false shrine, and sh was left a wreck a monument of man's uri failhfulnessand woman's constancy. Una jie to bear up against the shock, in a mo ment of desperation, she sought the lethe by rushing into the unknown regions of futurily.

Flour. - " One of the mart singular features in the eastern markets, in view of the remarkable, season of drouth, is the decline in the prico of breadstuff. Flour, during the past week, in New York, declined about fifty cents a barrel. The result is attributed by some to the fresh supplies received from mills that have started nince the lute rains: others with more reason, atiribu e the change to tho limited demand of flour forexport, in conse quence of good crops on the Continent.
