Dayton, Ohio, July 8. The wheat harvest in the Miami valley has been pro gressing throughout the past week, aud the weather has been remarkably favora ble for the gathering of the crop. Its abun dauce has far exceeded expectations, and tho grain is of superior quality. In oats, flax and barley a heavy crop is also antici pated. Wheat in Ii,minois. The New York Post has information from Illinois that the product of wheat in that State is expected to be at least 25,000,000 bushels the pres ent year, which gives a bushel to every in habitant of the United States, youDg and old. Tho largest product of I llinois hith erto has been not moro than 16,000,000 bushels. Price or a BuokeH Heart The late Robert C. Sands sued for damages in a case of breach of prbmiso of marriage.

An article in tho Tribune, showing tho sectional feeling of tho South, states that for tho first forty eight years under the Federal Constitution, down to the election of Martin Van Burcn, only fifteen electoral votes were cast South of tho Potomac for any Northern candidate for tho Presidency.

Slavery in Nebraska. Tho New York Tribune publishes some intelligence from Nebraska which may well arrest attention. It dcvelopes plans already advanced toward maturity for the complete introduction of slavery into that Territory. Indeed it seems slaves have already been brought by emigrants from fhn Kiilltlinpn S)nt. . 1 vw uuu.uv.u uiaivo, J.UU VUUCSpuilUUIll states that the Slavery propaganda iu that quarter are greatly encouraged by tho suc cess which they think has crowned their effort iu Kansas. Accordingly they are carrying their tactics and their institution into the fertile and inviting plains of South ern Nebraska. jTheir avowed intention is to convert that part of tho Territory into a Slave Stato, leaving its Northern part open for Freemen, but in reality we cannot be sure of their setting any limit to their con quests. This is more than was to bo expec ted. The Oligarchy will never be satisfied with Kansas alone. They mean to possess all tho territories. Their motto is-no freedom outsido the present Freo States; and tlfty aro confident of accomplishing their purpose. Old Hickory a Prohibitionist Tho well known temperance lecturer, General Carey, says that Neal Dow is not tho originator of tho Prohibitory Law, au thorizing the seizure and destruction of liquor in this country. The honor or im precation should bo heaped upon another head-no less a ono than that of General Andrew Jackson, who, as President of tho United States, "took the responsibility" to approve a law of Congress which authorized, empowered and commanded all tho. United States officers to seize, confiscate, aud des troy, without benefit of jury, or right of appoul, all spirituous liquors, whether in tho "original packages" or not, or whether do mestic or imported, if found upon Indian territory; andithat ''tyrannical, oppressive, unconstitutional, obominablo law," was passed by a Democratio Congress and ap proved by a Democratio President, and is still iu full force in these United States. From the Steubenville Herald. Tite Steubenville & Indiana Railroad. Ma. Editor: At the close of my last number, I propounded two questions which I proposed lo examine thereafter. 1st. As to the ability of the community, through which the road runs, to take $119,043, 81 of stock in tho road in addition to what has been already taken, I'say $419,053 81, be cause I propose to dispose of this matter first, resorving tho proposition for future discussion that they are able to tako much more. Tho asscssmentof real and personal prop crtv in tho counties of Jefferson, Harrison, Carroll, Tuscarawas, Coshocton and the North half of Licking, through which tho road runs is as follows: Real estate, 824,120,147. Personal, 17,303,838 but reducing for certain dis puted items and calling tho round aggre gate $50,000,000 we havo a substantial basis upon which to estimate. The entire cost of tho road or 4,000, 000 is eight per cent, or eighty dollars for every thousand tho community is estimated to be worth, and no man will look at tho assessment of his property and say that he would tako that for it. But at present the point is to get up to half that, or an aver age of forty dollars on every thousand. Of this there is already taken $1,218,827 88. What is wanting is $419,053 81, or 8,382 shares of stock. This is in round numbers $1,037,881 69 of stock held by the commu nity, andjoaving $2,301,037 92 of debt or what is the same thing in effect $2,301, 037,92 of stock held by foreign stockhl ders. In th'iB calculation it will be seen that the sum of $61,080 39 of earnings of the road is counted as so much stock taken and paid for and makes up tho amount thus. Stock taken and paid in $1,218,827 88 Earnings of the road applied to stock.. 01,080 89 Loans 2,301,037 92 Deficit to be supplied by new stock 419,053 81 Total cost of the road $4,000,000 00 There is auuther view of this subject. How many property holders aro tlio within this district of country? There are not less than twenty four thousand freemen. Two million dollars of stock is less than ono hundred dollars to each freeman. Now the $1,218,827,88 of stock already taken, has been taken partly by municipal copor- atioos as counties, cities, townships, &c, only the interest is required to be paid, and the moment the ioad becomes a dividend paying road that ceases, because tho road will pay it. Of the stock subscribed and paid by individuals, tho individuals sub scribing aro only six hundred or a trifle less. Now this leaves twenty-three thous and four hundred freemen within the range of the road, who have not yet taken a share of stock iu the road. Can thero bo any doubt of their ability to tako 8,382 shares of fctoek amongst thorn, if they are once convinced that it is for their interest to do so? It is a little over ono share of stock to every three freemen. Is it their interest to do so? This, the second question; I proposed in my last to examine. And now, my fellow citizens, permit uic to. lay aside this distant mode of discussion, and address myself to each one of you in familiar style, face to face. Can you, will your circumstances admit of your investing fifty, ono hundred, two hun dred, or any other sum of money in a safe and profitable investment, and holding it for tho benefit ofoursclf aud your family, as a perpotua 1 inheritance convertible into money at any moment. If you can do so, and pay up tho amount within tho next six or twclvo months, let us look at this road, and examine rigidly, so as to precludo any lational danger of error, whether your money will bo safo hero, and wjiethcr it will yield to you,- interested as you are, a reasonable return for the use of it. As to its safety the charter is a perpet ual charter; and cannot bo forfeited, except for gross criminality ou the part of the stockholders themselves; a state of things no man, can rationally anticipate Tho power of tho legislature to repeal charters has of lato been tho subject of elaborate investigation, and will soon bo consigned to that bourne of forgetfuluess where many other crude doctrines of honest, but mista ken statesman sleep in undistinguished oh livion. Will the stock yield a reasonable return for the ubo of the money? Whothcr it will bo at all times convertible into money will depend upon tho dividends. Times are bard, indeed, whon six per cent stocks, having ten years to run, that is not payablo in less than ten years are worth less than dollar for dollar. And the longer they havo to run tho greater is their value. This is for tho tamo reason that your freo-siuiplo estato in your farm is worth moro than a leaso for ten, twenty, fifty years, or for your lifetime. Tho one will soon end, the other runs into the un told years of tho future I havo shown you that railroads costing $40,000, $75,000 and $90,000 per mile make dividends of eight, nine and ten per ocnt. per annum on tho money invested in them. Hore is a road costing $32,258 per mile. Tho business which on the Boston & Worcester road would pay twenty five per cent, on tho cost of this road. Does any road fun through a country richer in all that gives . business to a road. Does any road oonnect richer producing coun tries than tho interior of Ohio, with great er consuming markets than Pittsburgh Philadelphia, New. York and Boston? I will in a few days, enter more into detail than I can at present on this part f the subject, for I intend to assert nothing here that will not stand the test of experience and of time. Truth is all sufficient here, and aught else would be the extremo of folly. ' ' A Friend. Steubenville, July 2, 1855.

Died, on Saturday June 30th 1855, in the 15th year of his age, Pluinmer J. lams ouly son of Pluinmer J. lams deceased, of Steubenville, Ohio, leaving a sister and mother, the wife of Dr. W. II. Brown of Ipava Ills. , to morn their sad and early loss. His death was caused by drowning, whilst in the act of bathing in Spoon riv er, near Bcrmadotte, Fulton County Illi nois. His remains were interred in the village Cemetery at Ipava, on Sabbath afternoon July 1st, under the charge of tho Ipava Division of the Sons of Temperance, by request of the family of tho 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. Tho death of a loved one under ordinary circumstan ces, whether occurriug as tho result of pro tracted disease or tho necessary effect of declining age, is an event which few are able to meet unmoved ; but when tho "in satiate archer" springs his deadly shaft w ith unerring aim, at the life of tho vig orous scion as it is growing into manhood, thereby making an irrcparablo breach in the family circle, and blasting tho fond est hopes of maternal and filial affection ; the effect is such as to challenge the pow er of tho most nervous and best fortified mind to withstand the sudden shock. Of ten ve have been called to mourn tho un timely demise of the child of disobedience, the inebriate or tho criminal; but the friends and relatives of tho subject of this brief sketch, find a soursc of consolation in tho fact that the premature decease was unaccompanied by cither of these charac teristics ; whilst a fond and doting mother, and an effectionate and confiding sister are thus called to mourn their sudden bereave ment. May they be inspired with confi dence in that Supreme Intelligence which has thus early snatched from earth to Heaven the Fpirit of a brother and son. "When, mid our hopes that waken fears, And mid our joys that end in gloom ; The children of our earthly years, Around us spring and bud and bloom. An nngel from the blest above, Comes down among them at their play ; And takes up one we dearly love,, And bears it silently away. Bereft, wit fuel the spirits strife; But while the inmost soul is riven, Our dear and dutious bud of Life Receives immortal bloom in Heaven." A Friend of the Deceased. STEUBENVILLE MARKET.
