Massillon, 0-, Ju'y H. 1855. Dtar T'mi : To your busiucss men, th-j new of a heavy crop of wheat, oats, barley and rye, all over this young Empire of the west, in the most gratifying intelli gence that tan be conveyed to them. I liavo Fpcnt some two weeks of this mouth ju Ohio, and can bear testimony to the groat promise of the wheat crop of this State. It also affords me pleasure to say lint the gr.dn is all cut and secured be yond any contingency. In the vicinity of this thriving young iity, lives our late fellow-townsman, Col. T. S. Webb on a large and elegant farm. Ileie. as in Philadelphia, he is characteri zed by his affability, energy and public spirit his profuse hospitality aud fine so cial qualities. I am glad to know that this enterprising citizen will be largely reward ed by bountiful crop3 this season. That his wheat may never be blasted, aud his ;jrn grow luxuriantly, is the wish, not on ly of his present, neighbors, but of the ma ny friends he left behind in Philadelphia. Happening in Columbus on the day of the Rr-uublican Convention, I looked in upon the assemblage I sec your telegraph- ie despatch calls it :i ''tree bml Conven tion." This is not altogether correct. The assemblage was composed of Whigs, Americans, Free Sailers and Democrats, who yuWlast year, (and adopted the name of Republican,) and by so doing carried li surv .'if r.1i firdinance which declared that A Territorv former should I j remain free, to nominal a State ticket.- j Though pledged to freedom, yet, as 1 1 have above stated, it was composed of nun of till mrtif'j. and will onlv be o&noscd bv i ' j ii . ,(.l,,,,f(,n,,,,,,fv. 1V,ft,ultwi;ibothe 1 J same a-t last year oidy more so.

Like all companies, the S- & I. R. R. has exhausted all tbe local V . , , mi. , roua, and novv only needs 80OO.OUU to make t itoneofthemostvalubleauxiUariesof the! Pennsylvania Railroad. It is the onIy road in Ohio thathas a uniform guage with I c 0 I the latter. It rnsses throutrh the Tusea- rawas Val , the most productive and for- tile part of the State, a trade that, hcrctv fore, has ull gone to New York, over the Ohio Canal, oad which can be diverted by eimply building a bridge over tho Ohio at ritcubenvillc. Eminent Engineers sav i that it is the ouly spot on that river where -i v I a bridge can be built, that will not con flict with the decisions of the Supreme Court. Certain, it is. that tln imrt u:t. und advantages are apparent to tbe rye of! any oue. The 'shipment of flour aud graiu, alone, to New York city, is the great cause of its prosperity. By simply bridging the Ohio at Steubenville, one and a-balf millions of barrels of flour will pass over, aunually, that and the Pennsylvania Railroad from Ohio aloue. Let me csplaiu. An exten sive miller ou tho Muskingum, told mo, he shipped, annually, one hundred thousand barrels of flour alone ; that it now went to New York; that owing to frequent hand ling, it seldom arrived iugood order: that ny rout that could carry his flour without re-buippm;; would get it, eveu if it cost ten cents more per barrel. For, said he, I lose wore than the ten cents iu charges for cooperage, and the unsightlinog of the i something that interests, aud the some barrels when it reaches the market. This i thing to be proud of; these arc the attrib is the feeling of all manufacturers of flour; j utes of the man loitnd to be loved. and now the question arises wbother it is " ; ,, nottho interest of the Pe.,n,vlvania Rail- noPe paves thego den way to bliss, , , ... , J and cnecrtulncss ia the lamp that lights road, whose revenues w.ll be ;,0 henvily in-1 the beauteous walk. creased, by a close connection with this Ohio Road, and the business men of Phil adelphia, to immediately set to work and raise this Company S500,000, by endors ing their bonds, subscribing stock, or in some other way. We all know it will be years before the Iletupfinld Road is completed , and when it is, its capacity will no more than do the business that comes over tho Central Ohio Railroad, and Marietta and Ciucinuati Railroad. Any one familiar with Ohio and her Railroads, will see at a glance that the Steubcnville and Indiana Railroad is the most important Road, so far as the inter ests of Philadelphia are concerned ; and yet, strange to say, this valuable contribu tion to our commercial greatness has been almost wholly overlooked by your press and your people. I trust, Messrs. Edit ors, that you, in conjunction with your brethren, will call the attention of Phila dolphians to this, to them most important matter. Fataskxa. Anecdote of Webster.

The air, tho j niunner, the tone, the conversation, the From the Carman. living by One's Wits. Nine persons sailed from Basle, down tho Rhine. A Jew who wished to go to Shalampi, was allowed to come ou board aud journey with them, on couditiou that ho would conduct himself with propriety, aud givo tho captain eighteen kreuzers for his passage. Now it is true something gingled in tho Jew's pocket when ho struck his hand agaiust it ; but the only niency there was therein, was a twelve kreutzer piece, for the other was a brass button. Notwith standing this, he accepted tho offer with gratitude. For ho thought to himself, semething may be earned, even upon the water. There is many a man who has grown rich upon the Rhine. Duriug the first part of the voyage, the passengers were very talkative aud merry, and the Jew, with his wallet under his arm, for he did not lay it aside, was tho object of much mirth and mockery, as, alas ! is often the caso with those of his nation. But as the vessel sailed onward, aud passed Thuriugeu and St. Vcoit, the passengers, one after the other, grew si leut, aud gazed down the river until .one cried : 'Come, Jew, do you know any past time that will amuse us ? Your fathers must have coutrived many a one, during their long stay iu tho wilderness.' Vnvv ic l-n tinirt ' thiturrl Now is tho time thought the Jew, 'to shear my sheep.' And he proposed that they should sit round in a circle, aud pro pound very curious questions to each oth er, aud he, with their permission, would sit with them. Those who could not an- the questions, should pay the oue : whu propounded them a twelve kreutzer honim? to divert themselves with the Jews wi orstuniditv. each one asked, at random ! whatever cntead his head. Thus for "ample, the first oue asked- "How many soft boiled eggs could the gi ant. (iuliuh eat unon an eumtv stomach ' t- i All said it. WM inmnSsil,! to answer I - i thut question, aud each paid his twelve kreutzcrs ut the Jew said, "One; for he who I bus eaten ono egg cannot eat a seeoud up .! on au empty stomach, and the others paid him tWclvc kicutzer8. .in,,. il,nll,i t.n,,,t T will try you out yf thc New Testameut, and 1 J J thiuk I kIiuII win uiy piece.

The Jew said, "The smallest." The seventh asked, "How can a man i rule iroiu Basle to J3crne iu the Ehaue, m . . 1 4l , . j tho junnnor time, when the sun shines? ihe Jew said,-U hen ho comes to a ! whcro, thcW ?

Thc Jew said, "lie must make fista out of them." l 'i'i. ....... a.. n't.:.. i. j ",ulu " J0 luu iU,B i ed "How can five persons divide five eggs, so that each one shall receive one, j i and still one remain in tho dish ?" The Jew said, "The last must take thc dish with thc egg, and he can let it lie there as loDg as he pleases." But now it come to his turn, and be de termined to make a good sweep. After many preliminary compliments, he asked, with an air of mischievous friendliuess, "How can a man fry two trouts in three pans, so that a trout may lie in each pan?" Not cue could answer this, and one af ter the other gave him a twelve kreutzer piece. But when thc ninth desired that he should answer it himself, be frankly ack nowledged that he knew not how the trout could be fried in such a way. Then it was maintained that this was unfair in the Jew; but lie stoutly affirmed that there was no provision for it in the agreement, s ivc that he who could not an swer the question should pay tho kreutz crs, and he fulfilled flic agreement, by pry- ing toat sum to the ninth of his comrades . . t . . . who had asked himself. But they all be- . . . f jngncu inmuauis, ana gratetul lOfUuf amusement which had passed an hour or two very pleasantly for them, laughed heartily over their loss, and at the Jew's cunning. Now, as it will bo no difficult matter to compute what the Jew gained, we leave this for the reader to do, merely putting them in mind that tho price of his passage was eighteen kreutzcrs. Rest. Is there oue. word in the whole vocabulary more precious in its import, to the. "tired denizens' of this working world, than this little mouosyllable rest? Man of labor, child of toil, tell us. At the beuch or the plow, at the desk or the counter, at tho bar, in tho pulpit, or iu daily or night ly rouuds among tho sick and the dying in life professional or unprofessional in the pent city or open country in heated rooms or in freezing winds or the heaving uea or the stable earth where wanders or la bors the man or woman to whom the thought of rest is not full of pleasure. Rest at night or at noou rest from hand-work is the constant craviug of the weary body aud sonl. No wonder that the thought of rent enters so largely into the common antici pation of a blessed future. After life's day of toil the "rest that remaineth" shall come with its unmeasured boon to the weary. To Keep Fmebfrom Horses. These noblo animals arc often greatly afflicted whilo on the road, or in the field, by flies, which annoy them continually during their task-work, aud which prove a source of no little perplexity to the teamster by ren dering them intractable aud restive while iu the gear. This, however, is a difficulty that admits of an easy remedy, and one which common humanity, as well as self- aroma of the plant to the parts on J which it is applied. This is a certain rem edy, uo fly however savage, will alight whe' it has been diffused.

There have teeu large uutnbers ot ar- nsts for drunkenness in New York city, Brooklyn and other town throughout thc State. The course of the magistrates uu der the law is very plain, yet there seems to be quite a difference of construction among them in regard to the maimer of proceeding under it. There will be uo d oubt soon be a settled construction of the law, and its efficiency tested beyond con troversy, as the liquor dealers are deter mined to resist it to thc utmost of their power. A strong hold is hard to overthrow, and the besciged grog sellers will fight us hard and hold out as long as thc Russians at Scbastopol. That Last Bad Act. "That last bad act," so repeated a mother, us she stood over the corpse of her boy, who was bro't home to her from the pond where he had been to bathe. She had charged him, on leaving home, not to go near ilie river, as the banks were steep aud thc current strong. Rut ho disobeyed her aud died in the deep. What a sad thought was that for thc moth er to carry with her, that her little boy's last act was oue of disobedience. It was a bad state iu which to die. The hist act was a deliberate breaking of the fifth com mandment. And it was not strange that his mother should repeat mournfully, as I she looked upon his lifeless form, -0, that i last bad act !' Any act we perforin may be our last oue ; and there is no way to be sure of dying in the performance of good acts but by performing nothing but good ones. I. 0. 0.
