The prospect of the crops is still very good from all parts of the country, in spite of the itching palms of speculators in bread and beef. . Cholera has broken out in Georgetown Mo., aud there had been twenty-two deaths at tko last accounts. Not a aiuglo family in the town, it is stated, had esca ped visitation with the epidemic. The Pension Office has received the mus ter and, arty rolls of the Kentucky troops who served, under Gen. Wayne in 1793-4, and gives notice of the fact, in order that all persons iu any way interested may have the full benefit of those documents. A Lucofoco Editor says that "the re spectable portion of the Know Nothing party have lost ull control of the Order." But how cau there be a "respectable por tion of the Know Nothing party," if, as the Lucofoco papers assort, all the mem bers of that party are 'midnight assassins,' Hraitora,' 'liars,' 'sneaks,' aud 'perjured wretches V A man in St. Louis who ran away with Lis neighbor's wife and boots a few day's since, has been arrested aud will be tried for stealing the boots, but abduction of the wife the law does not regard as a crime. Mrs. Mary Channel, a member of the United Society of Hartford, Mass., died a day or two since, at the advanced age of 90 years. Mrs. C. was one of the choir of singers that welcomed Gen. Washing ton upon his visit to Boston. The Know-Nothings of Louisville held a meeting on Tuesday night, 3d inst., to ratify the action of tho Philadelphia Con vention. An imposing procession took place Speeches were made by Hen. Hum phrey Marshall, President Bartlett, Gen. Pilcher, Mr. Prentice and others. Great cuthusiasin wm manifested, and the crowd was estimated at ton thousand persons. A letter from New Mexico on tho 30th of June, tells of tho unprecedented success Colonels Fauntleroy and St. Vain over the hostile Utah and Apache Indians, with their respective commands. For years, these land pirates have been a terror to the inhabitnnts of this territory pillaging and rnassacreing tho inoffensive paople, and this with almost perfect impunity. A letter from Eaton, Ohio, dated 18th ult., speaking of harvest laborers, says : Several thousand able-bodied men are need ed hero. They would receive twelve or eighteen dollars per month and found, sev eral hundrod could find employment in this section and reooivo good wages, aud be otherwise well cared for.

' ! f rem the tfteufcnville Herald. Th SteabeaTlIlr & Indiana Railroad. : : Ma. Editor In my last, I said there were other view of the subject, which ad dreeeed ' themselves sot lee cogently to very man's self interest than those there presented. '. Before 'proofing to explain them, I wilt add to what I have already aid, that five dollars an acre' may be set down at a moderate average advance on the lands within the limits befsre Indicated. This will give an actual advance on-1,500 000 acres of land of 19,500,000 or 300 on ;eaoh quarter section, The advance in the'uett proooeda over and above the cost of marketing of all sur pins agricultural products sent to market,' will be at least in equal degree on those products heretofore marketable. But this is not all. Many articles which can in oer tain localities, be produced in great abun dance, will be added to the list of market able productions, fiom which they bave been heretofore excluded by their bulk, or weight in proportion to their value. Amongst these are hay, corn, potatoes, oats, coal, staves, heading, hooppoles, boards, stone from valuable quarries, &o. ' These, whilst they add to the productive value of the land affording them, will also swell the business and inoome of the road. . Experience has already proved this as to some of the above articles; and others will in the course of events be rapidly added to the number. And now let us look at the stock itsolf. I propose hereafter to collect together the data more fully than I now Can from which to determine the permanent valuo of the stock. For the present I will state that Railroad charters, and this amongst others, are without limitation as to time. A Rail road therefore, being once completed, and the paid stock made equal to the cost and full equipment of the road, the stock is as permanent property as laud or any other property a man can have. It differs en tirely in this respect from bank stock. Bank charters seldom have more than twenty years to run from their creation, and their renewal is always matter of doubt aud diffi culty, besides the many other calamities to which bjuks are liable, from which Rail roads are free. What dividends the stock will yield,. must depend upon the cost of the road, and the amount of steady, permanent business in travel and freight it ;nay be able to com mand. The prcseut charges for travel are three dollars und forty -live ceuts, from Steuben ville to Newark, and twenty-five cents from tho Cadiz junction to Cadiz, making three dollars and seventy cents for the entire length of the road. The charges for freight vary according to the character of the prop, erty to be carried. Oae.third of u cent per mile for eacn hundred pounds would op proximate an average, yet it would give uu imperfect idea, for iastauco, flour is curried from Newark to Steubenville for thirty cents per barrel of 21rj lbs. A ton of first olass freight is carried fraru Newark to Steubenville, 110 miles for $3,00, second class do for $5,20, third class do. for $4, 80; und intermediate distances at the same rates. A comparison of the road in some of the most essential particulars with other well known roads, will best show what are its prospects. Since writing the above, I have seen the financial statement of the oost of road. This will enable me to make a finanoial compar ison at onoe, which I proceed to do: The Boston & Lowell road twenty -six miles long cost $1,956,719 or $75,258 per mile. This road divides eight per cent, aud retains a large surplus. The Boston and Maine road seventy three miles long, cost $3,021,172 or $41 386 per mile. This road divides nine per cent and has an average surplus to meet casual tics of $50,000. Boston and Worcester road, forty five miles long, cost $4,113,609 or $91,013 per mile. This and the Boston and Low ell road have double tracks. This road di vides ten per cent, and keeps a large sur plus on hand. The Steubenville and Indiana road has cost as it now stands inolnding all expenses, $3,802,230,75 for 124 miles of road, but a furthor outlay of $200,000 is required for depots, stations, motive power and ballas ting, making a total of $4,000,000 or $22, 253 per mile. This sum has been raised as follows: Stock subscribed and paid 1,218,827, 88 Earnings of the road on freight 22,997, 08 On passengers.......... 38,083, 81 Bills payable and due indi viduals 221,284,56 Loans 2,801,037 92 To be provided..... 197,769,25 $4,000,000 00 It will thus be seen that to make tho stock equal to the cost of tho road over its earnings applied, thero is wanting $2,720, 091,73 in stock or 54,402 shares of $50 each. Now what is the question presented ? Simply, what is to be done is the first It may be met by various propositions, but one thing is certain, something must be done. Masterly inactivity is certain ruin here. If the fourth and sixth items above amounting Co $419,053 81 were provided for by new stock, the fifth item might probably be placed in the position of a per manent sit per cent. loan. ' ' This would enable the company to pay off suoh claims as their creditors are not preparod to postpone the payment of ballast, th road, provide rolling stock adequate to tbc business to be done and in six months, make" a dividend on stock. Because U is self-evident that to pay an interest of six or seven per cent, on a loan of $2,301,037 92 it just equivalent to a dividend ofso mueh stock ; and for the time being, renders the lenders stockholders in effect, at a certain instead of an uuoertain dividend. To pro vide for this $419,053 81 will require 8,382 shares of stock, of fifty dollars each. Can they be had? This will dopeod up on the answers to two questions. 1st Is there the. ability to take and pay for it? And 2d is the prospect of a profita ble investment suoh as to induce prudent men to so place their money t As their number is sufficiently extended I proposo to examine these two questions in another number. A Friend. Steubenville, June 29, 1855. Canadians Celebrating the 'Fourth' at Cleveland. One of the most novel and pleasing in cidents connected with the celebration of the 4th of July at Cleveland, says the Plain Dealer, was the visit of some three hundred Canadian Firemen from London, C. W., who, taking advantage of the Re ciprocity Treaty and the steamer "Tele graph came over to see the Fourth, and enjoy, for a day, their own asperatkras for liberty. As they wer expected quite early in the morning, the bells of our firemen commenced ringing "before the peep of day," and the Department was vaXia good time to receive them. They were escort ed to the Angier House by the Chief En gineer, in front of which they formed a hollow square, and their own excellent band struck up 'Hail Columbia.' Never was the National Air of our country played under more peculiar circumstances or with more thrilling effect. AH seemed to feel that a new era was dawning upon us, that the time had come when the Lion and the Eagle could dwell in peace together. Our patriotic Governor,- who was stop ping at tho Angier, detcrmiued not to be outdone in the way of chivalry, came out upon tho balcony and welcomed our Caua diau frieuds as "neighbors and cousins." He complimented them upon their fine ap pearunce and thanked them for the honor paid our Republican Institutions in the great State of Ohio, and iD the name of the people, welcomed them to our republi can shores. After the speech, the Band 'Yankee Doodle' with die variation!. Theu followed 'God save the Queen,' as they wheeled iuto line, and the crowd gave three tremendous cheers ! Thanks to the steamer Telegraph, the Reciprocity Treaty, and tho liberal spirit of the age, Clevelandcrs and Canadians can now trade und traffic, celebrate and navigate, shout and sing together; and the time will yet come when Brother Jon athan cau whistle Yankee Doodle iu Hyde Park and sing Hail Columbia in the Scar let Courts of Westminster The Old Oaken Bucket This most popular song was written by Samuel P. Woodsworth, while yet he was a journeyman printer, working in an office at the corner of Chambers and Chatham streets. Near by, in Frankfort street, was a drinking shop, kept by a man named Mallory, where Woodworth and several particular friends used to resort. One af ternoon tho liquor was super-excellent. Woodworth seemed inspired by it ; for, af ter taking a draught, he sets his glass up on the table, and smacking his lips, declar ed that Mallory 's eau dt vie was superior to anything he had ever tasted. 'No,' said Mallory, 'you are mistaken; there was one which in both our estimations, far surpassed this in the way of drinking.' What was that ?' asked Woodworth, du biously. 'The draught of pure, fresh water that we used to drink from the old oaken bucket that hung in the well, after our return from the labors of the field on a sultry day in Summer.' The tear-drop glistened for a moment in Woodworth's eye- 'True, true,' he replied, and short ly after quitted the place. He immedi ately returned to tho office, grasped a pen and in half an hour the 'Old Oaken Buck et,' one of the most delightful composi tions in our language, was ready in manu script to be embalmed in the memories of succeeding generations.. Boys, Look at This. That "Honesty is the best policy," was illustrated some years since, under the fol lowing ciroumstanoet : A lad was pro ceeding to an unole'a to petition him for a sick sister and her children, when he found a pocket Wallet containing fifty dollars. The aid was refused, and the distressed family was pinched with want. The boy revealod his fortuae to his mother, bnt ex pressed a doubt about using any portion of the money. His mother confirmed his good resolution, and the pocket book was advertised, and the owner found. Being a man of wealth, upon learning the history of the family, he presented the fifty dol lars to the sick mother and took the boy into his service, and he is now one of the most successful merchants in Ohio. 'Hon esty'always brings its reward-to the miud, if not to the pocket ;' but it always docs in the long run, to the pocket as well as the mind. Tho suspension turnpike bridge being built across the Delaware river, at Equin unk, on the line of tho. Erie railroad, fell on Friday evening. Ten. men were enga ged on the bridge at thiuie,, six of whom were scrioudj injured.' ' The Chris tian'e Experlane. Dear Brethren, I have found, .

The Baltimore "American," of the 30th ult., says: "The phenomena of Thurs day morning appears to have been confin ed within ten miles east and west of Bal timore, though to the north it extended through a range of country of about sixty miles. At Magnolia and in the Neck there wm a. few that were not fully arous ed, and as far as Endicott's Mills the shock was very Bevere. Wo have made enquiry of a number of persons residing within a few miles south of the city; and although some of them were up reading or attend ing to sick children, not the slightest com motion of the elements was heard. The Howard Gazette, published at Ellicott's Mills, says : "On Wednesday night last, about 12 1-2 o'clock, some of our citizens were startled from their sleep and consid erably frightened by a lw, rumbliug noise somewhat resembling a distant reverbera tion of thunder. It lasted for the space of about a minute and a half, and was accom panied by a tremendous motion of the earth, shaking the houses in seme localities to their fuuudiition." The Baltimore Co. Advocate U thus alludes to the phenom ena, and records a second shock fifteen minutes later : Ou Wednesday uight last, after 12 o'clock, the people of this section of country were started from their slum bers by a violent ahetk accompanied by a report. It was of such violence as to shake the do rs aud windows, and dishes on the shelves in the houses. In about fifteen minutes another rumbling like distant thunder. At first, people supposed it to be thunder, but the moon was shining, while some hazy clouds strcched off to the Nerth West VaRiett or Tabti. A correspondent of the Pennsylvania Telegraph makes the following enquiry : "How do yon account for it, that, such Anti-American old fogy papers aa the Lancaster Examiner, the Carlisle Volunteer, the Democratic Union &c., 4c, have any readers at all ? They most certainly deserve none." . To which the telegraph Teplies : "It is entirely owing to the difference of taste.

For tha True American, Obituary. Died, on Saturday June 30th 1855, in the 15th year of his age' Plumbter J, James, only son of Pluinraer J. James de ceased, of Steubenville, Ohio ; leaving a sister and mother, tho wife of Dr. W. H. Brown of Jpava Ills., to mora tucir sad and early loss. His death was caused by drowning, whilst in the act of bathing in Spoon river, near Bermadotte, Fulton Co Illinois'. His remains were interred in the village Cemetery at Jpava, on Sabbath afternoon July 1st, mader (he charge of the Jpava Division of the Sous of Temperance, by request of the family of the deceased ; fol lowed by a large concourse of sympathi sing friends and acquaintances, who had assembled for the performance of the last sad obsequies of the early dead. The death of a loved one under ordhary cir cumstances, whether occurring as the re sult of protracted disease or tho necessary effect of declining age, is au event which few are able to meet unmoved ; but when the ''insatiate archer" aprings his deadly shaft with unerring aimat the life of the vigorous ssion as it' is growing into man hood, thereby making an irreparable breach in the family circle, and blasting the fond est hopes of maternal and filial affection ; the effect iB such as to challenge the pow er of the most nervous and best fortified mind to withstand tho sudden shock. Of ten wo have been called to mourn the un timely demise of the child of disobedience, the inebriito or tho criminal; but the friends and relatives of the subject of this brief sketch, find a Bourse of consolation in the fact that the premature decease was unaccompanied by either of these charac teristics; whilst a fond and doting moth er, and an effectionaro and confiding sis ter are thus called to mourn their sudden bereavement. May they be inspired with confidence in that Supreme Intilligence which has thus early snatched from earth to heaven the spirit of a brother and a son. "Wlien, mid our hopes that waken feart, And mid our joys that end in gloom ; The children of our earthly years, Around us spring and bud and bloom. An angel from the bleat above, Comes down among them at their play ; And takes up one we dearly lore, And bears it sileutly away. Bereft, we feel the spirits strife; But while the inmost soul is riven, Our dear and dutious bud of Life Jteeeives immortal bloorc. in Heaven." A Friend of the Deceased. STEUBENVILLE MARKET.
