theoretically of the excellent accommoda
tions to be had in public Hotels, and in
10 doing, we may unintentionally over rate
outers but in the case of (hcU. S. House,
we say that all of our senses must have
repeatedly combined to deceive us, or it is
one of tho best and most comfortable pluocs

We have often partaken of the hospitalities
of Capt. Earl, the gentlemanly and popu

to the favor of the lovers of good living.
We would advise all confirmed dyspeptics
to avoid Capt. Earls table.

received . here, and is highly encouraging

one formerly run and reported upon, about

i Railroad Meeting.
We wcro unavoidably prevented from
being present at the meeting of the Stock
holders and Birectors of the Steubenville
and Indiana R. 11. on Wednesday last,
hold in this city, and are therefore indebt
ed to the. Daily Herald of Saturday for
the following: -
"Tho meeting of the Stockholders of
the Steubenville und Indiana Railroad,
which assembled in this city ou Wednes
day Inst, attracted more than ordinary in
terest. So much so, that many of the
friends of the improvement were here from
distant counties along the line, and the
Court House was crowded with spectators,
Judge Shaw of Coshoctun county presi
ded, and Joseph Sharon Esq., of Harrison
and J. S. Patterson Esq., of Jefferson ac
ted as Secretaries.
The object of the meeting was to pro
cure additional subscriptions to meet exi
gencies, and to make some additional im
provements in the way of putting the road
in first rate order. . ...
Ou the opening of. the meeting, the
President, Thomas L. Jewctt, gave a very
clear, lucid and satisfactory report of the
road, financially and prospectively, which
was by no means discouraging but, in
consideration of tho times, rather encouraging-
Col. Collier followed, in a very excellent,
well-timed, and meritorious speech aud
gavo the meeting some idea of the labors
of the Board, of which he is a member.
The amount cf gratuitous labor performed,
and, that they had backed their opinions
of tho practicability of tho improvement
ovinced their interest not in words alone,
but by the "all essential," money and
that too, iu liberal sums and, they were
with the united action of the citizens along
the line of the improvement, ready and
willing to still do more.
After remarks of several other gentle
men, a committee composed of one repre
sentative of each township in the counties
along the lino of the road, was appointed
to procure additional stock and, we arc
pleased to know that they are meeting with
remarkable success. The amount subscri
bed already, for the objects set forth above,
exceeds eighty thousand dollars.
Every confidence is thus manifested iu
tho road that it will when an Eastern
connection is made, be, not only ono of
tho best improvements of which Ohio can
boast, but one of the best paying roads in
the country the stook of which will in
due course of time, be sought for by cap
italists. Tho result cannot be, possibly, other
wise. There is no other road iu tho State
of Ohio, which passes through better im
proved, richer, or more productive agricul
tural districts. There is no Railroad re
gion in the eastern portion of the State of
Ohio, which,' for fertility of soil, will bear
a comparison with that through which the
Steubenville and Indiana Railroad passes.
Such being tho htate of the facts, tho.se
who havo capital at command along the
line of the improvement who have prop
erty, and consequently an interest on the
road should not be ''found wanting" at
.this, tho "eleventh hour" -but give un
mistakable evidence of their good will, by
the liberal nnd free subscriptions of' stock
emulate the example of those who have
already, and, within a few days, "piled"
up the sum of eighty odd thousand dol
The Northern Enow Nothing Manifesto.
Wo publish the following, from tho
seceding members of the National Council
of Kuow Nothings which recently termi
nated its session in the city of Philadel
phia. This we may assume to be the position
of the entire Americau organization of the
North; and it is manly, dignified und lib
eral. We will now havo a phalanx of
freedom not to be trodden under foot, nor
to be scoffed tt by the sneering Oligarchs

of thought aud of action therc is a
To the People of the United States.
The undersigned, citizens of various
States, assembled at Philadelphia on the
13th day of June, 1855, feel constaiued
under the existing state of affairs, to affirm
the following principles.
1st.. The unconditional restoratien of
that time Loaercd Compromise, kuown as
the Missouri Prohibition, which was des
troyed in utter disregard of the popular
will a wrong which no lapse of time can
palliate, and no pica for its continuance
can justify.'. And thatwc will use all con
stitutional means to maintain the positive
guarantee of that compact, until the ob
ject for which it was enacted has been con
summated by the admission of Kansas and
Nebraska as Free States.
'2nd".' That the rights of the Bottlers in
Territories to the free and undisturbed ex
ercise of the elective franchise guaranteed ,
to them by the laws under which they are
organized, should be promptly protected by
the National Executive whenever violated
or threatened. And that we counot con
scientiously act with thoso who' will, not
aid us in the correction of these National
wrongs and who will not even permit their
fair consideration and thoir full discuss-
wn.,r . "... . ;!
8 rd. We further deelaro our continued
and unalterable dfitermination to use all
honorable tfforts to secure such modifi
cation of the Naturalization laws, aided by
suoh au elevation of . public sentiment as
will preserve- the trus Interest of the ! Na
tion, and will guarantee the three vital
principles of a Republican Government:
Spiritual freedom, a free bible and
free schools thereby promoting tho
great work of Americanizing America.
4th. That we invoke the arm of legisla
tion to arrest that growing evil, the depor
tation by foreign Authorities of paupers
and convicts to our shores, und that, or our
National Constitution requires the Chief
Executive of our country to be of native
birth, we deem it equally necessary and
important that our Diplomat ia Representa
tives abroad should also possess noforeigu
prejudices to bias their judgement or toin-
fluenco their official action.
