True Poli-y of Philadelphia.
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

surv .'if r.1i firdinance which declared that

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.

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.

Among the many anecdotes of Mr. Web

slightly upon his negligeuce of pecuniary
matters, is still very Webstcriau in its

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.'

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

wi orstuniditv. each one asked, at random !
whatever cntead his head.

All said it. WM inmnSsil,! to answer I

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

who had asked himself. But they all be-

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. The leaves of the wal-

Thk riviiiBiToiiY Law in New Vokk.
mi i i , , !
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.
