Ragan's mush pot ? The above is from the Sieubenville Daily Herald of the 30th ult. 1 We have merely to say in reply that, as Clerk of the city council, we had no authority either to publish an ordinance or to employ any other person to do so. Afier the passage of a little ordinance by the council on Monday the 28th tilt., and after the council had adjourned, we were requested by the president of the council to take possession of the ordinance and publish it. We placed it in type and im mediately relumed it to the city marshal. This is the ground of Mr. Allison's com plaint. As this question involves one of Mr. Allison's great principles, upon which he is more sensitive than perhaps almost any other in the entire range of morals or politics, we forbear saying any thing more upon it, hoping that the above explanation will be satisfactory. REPUBLICAN CONVENTION. May 1, 1856. To the freemen of the county of Jef ferson, without regard to past political differences or divisions, who are opposed to the repeal of the Missouri Compro miseopposed to the extension of slave ry in the Territories opposed to the policy of the present federal administra' tion in favor of the admission of Kan "- sas as a free Stale in favor of restoring ihe action of the General Government to the principle's of Washington and Jef- ferson, and in favor of keeping the af- ' fairs of the Slate of Ohio out of the hands of the public plunderers, whom you have just hurled from office. Fellow Citizens: The tenure by which we hold our free institutions and our rights under them is constant, un slumbering vigilance. Let no man who neglects, from any trivial cause, to dis charge, with punctuality, all his duties as a freeman, complain that the Govern ment, Slate or National is not adminis tered according to his judgment. Such a man might well thank the attention of his neighbors that it is administered at all. The enemies of freedom, the ad vo rates, open and covert, of slavery are cunning in their stratagems and unceas ing in their efforts to subject the first to the domination of the laiter. What but the supineness of false confidence could have produced the spectacle of Repre sentatives and Senators in Congress from the free Slates, removing the obstructions the wisdom of our forefathers had inter posed to the spread of slavery, and to the contraction of the dominion of free dom T Their desertion of duty and of the principles of our fathers has prepa red a field which has been already repeat edly watered with fraternal blood, and from which the sounds of approaching bloody conflicts are borne upon every breeze. The national administration is commit ted on the side of slavery. Nothing can arrost its efforts but the indignant voice of the people. Not in broken and dis- eordant clamors, than' which nothing could be more grateful to those who pre fer a population of slaves to one of free . m'eii, lut in one firm and harmonious tone. , That voice, the freemen of Ohio are how called upon to raise in the legitimate exercise of their rights. To enable the freemen of Jefferson county to unite their mices with those of their fellow citizens in other counties, all those who claim to be included within the call of this article, are Invited to assemble at the Court House in Steubcnville, on Tliursday, the Z2d day of May, instant, at one oi'clock P.

The origin of the tire is wrapped in saw the evils which would flow from an indiscriminate emigration of foreigners from the monarchies of the old world, and earnestly advocated the doctrina that A mericans should always rule themselves. Discussing the propriety of encouraging emigration he says : "Every species ol government has its specific principles. Ours perhaps are more peculiar than any other in the universe. It is a composi tion of the freest principles of the Eng ish constitution, with others derived from natural right and natural reason. To these nothing can be more opposed than the maxims of absolute monarchies. Yet from such we are to expect the great est number of emigrants. They will bring with them the principles of the gov ernment they leave, imbibed in their ear ly yomh ; or, if able to throw them off, it will be for an unbounded licentiousness passing, as is usual, from one extreme to another. t It would be a miracle were they to stop at the point of temperate liberty. -These principles, with their language, they will transmit to their children, la proportion to their numbers they will share with us legislation. They will infuse into it their spirit, warp and bias its direction, and render it a heterogene ous, incoherent, distracted mass." Thus spoke that great statesman. Is not his language a warning to us ? That princi ple of the party which proclaims that Americans should rule their own coun try, is found upon the actual coming, the arrival of the very evils which his pro phetic vision beheld many long years ago. Already ihe foreign spirit is being infus ed into our legislation, it direction is warped and bied, mid, if the evils com plained of are not speedily arrested, it will become a heterogeneous, incoherent, distracted mass.

Some au thorities set down the whole ecclesiasti cal property of Mexico as high as 400 millions of dollars althnugh it is said that one-fourth of the whole is unproduc tive. This vast wealth yields the clergy an annual income of about twelve millions of dollars. The church establishment, thus supported, consists of the Archbish op of Mexico and nine Bishops, wliose aggregate income amounts to $539,000. The number ofthe parochial clergy is 3,- 677- There are ulso 10 cathedrals, having 168 canons and other dignitaries, and one collegiate church. The regular clergy I comprises 1,678 monks, chiefly Francis can, and there are 159 convents. Ecclesiastical property in Mexico has hitherto been free from taxation ; and the management of all property bequeathed to the church for pious uses, such for in stance as raising chapels, and saying mas ses for the souls of the donors, has always been in the hands of the clergy. ' It is more especially this last species oi church property, estimated by Baron Humboldt, some 50 years ago, to be worth $40,000, which it is intended at present to confis cate. The greater part of this vast prop erty is administered by Chaplains, who perform no parochial duties whatever.

Our little Emma sickened. It was fear ful to see the lily chase the rose from her cheek, the smile vanish from her rosy lip, and the light fade from her laughing eye. At last the fearful truth revealed itself; little Emma was dying. No human aid could reach her.
