Of Steubenville, Ohio. Wc, whose onmes are hereunto subscribed, do hereby adopt, and agree to be governed in our political action, by the following princi ples: 1st Nonebut Americans to rule America. 3 d.. The Uniou must be preserved. 3d. No Foreign julerference in American affairs. 4th. No union of Church and State. 6th. Inviolability of National Treaties. 6th. Personal morality iudispensable to office. 7th. An open Bible, without note or com ment, in all our Public Schools. Bth. Thorough reform of the Naturalisation Laws. 9ih. A capitatien tax that will exclude foreign paupers and couvicU. lOin. No appointment of foreigners on diplomatic posts. 11th. Strict economy in the administration of the Government. 12th. No interference with the right of citi ceuship already acquired by foreigners, and the protection of law to all who immigrate from love of liberty, but uncompromising opposition to Political OatholocUm, whether in ilie person df an American demagogue, or a foreign Ecclesiastical Despot. We are pleased to learn that Mr. J. F. Snowden, formerly of this place, but more recently of Wheeling, Va., has determined to again make his residence among us. He intends to resume his profession as school teacher, in the commodious buil dings which -he formerly occupied, on north third street, in one week from next Monday. An experience of fifteen years, with a r superior education, together with his acknowledged probity certainly enti tle him to a liberal patronage. STDealcrs and consumers of Tobacco are respectfully referred to the advertise ment of Mr. S. L. Sharp, in this paper. He keeps constantly on hand a superior article in bis line. 3TWe copy the following from the Pittsburgh Christian Advocate edited by Dr. Baird, regarding it as a true state ment of affairs in our city. How humil iating the confession we are compelled (o make of the truthfulness of the remarks under the caption of Temperance and Intemperance. We hope the council given by the Doctor will be faithfully ad hered to by every good citizen. STEUBENVILLE, OHIO. Churches Seminary-Business Tem perance and Intemperance Schools, and buildings for School purposes. Few towns in Ohio have a more beau tiful site than the city of Steubenville. It lies in a crescent-sbaped basin, with the Ohio river on the east, and is encir cled on the west by gently rising hills, which are at this season of the year cov ered from base to summit with the richest verdure. The plateau on which the city stands is sufficiently inclined to the river to secure perfect drainage, and with toler able care on tho part of the authorities the streets can be kept in a clean condi lion. The city is supplied with water drawn from the river to a capacious res ervoir on the top of the hill, and well lighted with gas. CHURCHES. Of these there are two belonging to the Methodist Episcopal Church; two to the Presbyterians, (O. .,) and the Meth odist Protestants, Protestant Episcopa lians, Baptists, Associate Reformed , Af rican Methodists, and Roman Cmholics, each have one. These are all plain look ing structures not at all pretentious as to architectural design, though chaste and comfortable. The people of the South street station, whose pulpit we occupied on last Sabbath, have been engaged for some time in the erection of a new church. With nothing very attractive in the outline of the new building, it .will present, when finished, a fine appearance, and furnish sittings for a large congrega tion. -' It occupies the site of the old I church an excellent position and will cost between nine and ten thousand dol lars . when completed; the congregation is not wealthy; and, owing to several causes an excess of cost over first esti mates, the pressure of the times, or de pression in business it is not thought possible for them to carry the enterprise through without help from abroad; and their pastor, Ker. I. C. Pershing, is now absent in the East soliciting help. SEMINARY. Rev, Dr. Beatty, of the Presbyterian Church, hss for many years carried for ward one of the most successful educa tional enterprises in s financial point of view in the land. Iris buildings are large in the aggregate, for there are sev eral of them, and have the appearance of having been enlarged, as room was needed, at the expense of unity of de sign.".' The grounds are well shaded, and re fenced about by a dead wall, which looks rather prison-like for' our taste. We learned that the attendance , of pupil is large. ' 1 v '.' BUSINESS. Steubenville invested largely perhaps extravagantly, in 1 Rai'road enterprises soim years ago; especially m the Steu benville end Indiana xo&i, the cantern terminus of which is here. lis stock has not been profitable as yet; and its ef fect on the town, by withdrawing a large portion of the capital of the place from other pursuits, has materially crippled the geneiat. business of the place. But it will recover from this, and the several railroads meeting here will contribute to bnild up, at no distant day, one of the most delightful cities in the Buckeye Slate. TEMPERANCE AND INTEMPERANCE. We see but one reason for not making the concluding sentence of the former monograph emphatic. Steubenville has too many groggeries and beer dens, which are developing the guzzling pro pensities of her young men at a fearful rate. If the city is not diunkr too many of her citizens are. We learned from intelligent gentleman , that the baneful traffic was rapidly increasing. There is a distillery in full blast, consuming five or six hundred bushels of grain a day, and low dram-shops, offering their vile concoctions to the youthful at almost eve ry turn. Nor do those traffickers in hu man sorrow ply their trade during the week only, but on the Lord's day, with shameless disregard of public sentiment engendered by their villainous calling their doorways to the pit stand open. This state of things is deplored by the religious and moral portion of the com munity. Will they sufTer us to say to them thai it need not continue. By a united effort you can enforce the laws of Ohio on this subject, which, though none of ihe best, would decipale those dogger ies in a short time. The pulpit, the press and the ballot box should all be employ ed with the zeal and devotion of martyrs until the worn is done. SCHOOLS AND SCHOOL HOUSES. There is one Union, or High School, organized under the law making provis ion for such schools, and ibis is said to be in a very good condition; but the wards of the city are greatly deficient in suita ble buildings for the accommodation of the common schools. It is not likely that any increase of taxation for school purposes will be borne until other burdens under which the business of the city now suffers are removed. In the afternoon of the day we spent there, we visited the Sabbath school con nected with the Hamline Chapel congre gation, where we met the pastor, Rev. J. D. Cramer, and had an opportunity of speaking for a few minutes to the chil dren. We were forcibly struck with the novel method adopted by this school in closing its exercises and leaving the chap el where the school is held. At a signal from the superintendent, the officers and teachers, followed by their schollars, moved out from the slips into the aisles and form themselves in a line of proces sion two abreast-and commenced ting ing and marching passing round the diffeient aisles three or four times, and then file off through the door into the vara anu depart. The children went through the exercise, and sang very sweetly, and we left musing on the time when ihe "ransomed of the Lord shall return and come lo Zion with singing when everlasting joy shall be on their heads." Bather Personal. The following literary effusion has been received by due course of Mail from the gentlemanly Post Master at New Com- erstown, and as it is doubtlessly the re sult of much study, andjiard, mental la bour we give it a place in our paper, ver batim, et literatim, et punctuutum. That the gentleman has called to his assistance an amanuensis, we cannot lor a moment doubt, when we compare this production with a former letter received from the same official ; the latter, being far superior to the former in point of penmanship and orthography. We have only to add, that we have no recollection of using in our letter, to which he takes exceptions, the language he attributes to as. But lo the thesis let the Govern ment agent speak for himself.

"The Crawford County Forum gives noiicte to candidates that it will announce the names of tucli as are subscribers for one dollar ; from those who are not sub scrihers, it will demand five dollars. This is right. A candidate for office who will not subscribe for his county paper, de serves to be charged five dollars for the announcement of his name, and (hen be beaten in the convention afterwards." This is a first riito idea and similar to one which The Buckeye Statk intends to adopt. During a political campaign, editors are expected to exert their utmost energies to secure the success of the ticket and it borders upon impudence in cwdi dates to look for this support if they do not give their paper the trifling patronage of a subscription.

A law yer at a circuit town in Ireland, dropped a ten pound note under the table, while playing cards at an inn. He did not dis cover his loss until he was going to bed, out then returned immediately. Un reach ing the room, he was met by the waiter, who said. "I know what you want, sir you nave lost something." ' ; "Yes, I have lost a ten pound note." 'Well, sir, I have found it, and here it IS." , ; - i nanus my good lad, Here's a sover eign for you-" " No, sir, I want no re ward for being honest." . i. .

The ar rival of Hon. Philip Frank Thomas, who has been designated for the Governor ship, is daily expected. In the event of his non-acceptance, indications are that Col. Cummins, who having once declined is now un applicant, and will be appoint ed. It is not improbable that an entirely new set of officers in the Territory will be sent. Several days will elapse before answers are received from those to whom the appointments have been tendered. A corps of officers will travel to Utah with military forces. Gen. Walker has paid a visit of cour tesy, merely, to the President, who kind ly received him. tie dines this afternoon with a select company of friends, inclu ding Gov. Jones !f Tenn. From Cincinnati. Cincinnati, June 13. This afternoon as four U. S. deputy Marshalls were ar resting a fugitive; slave and his wile, the slave stabbed J. jC. Elliot, deputy Mar shall, with a long sword knife, upon which another deputy Marshall shot the slave in the abdomen four limes. The negroes were then laken into custody. The Marshal's wound is thought danger ous, and the negro's are thought to be mortal. The affray occurred in a room on Vine street near the Post Office, where the negroes were secreted. Markets.

Mar garet Fuller say, writing of George Sand, She disappoints me, her remarks on Lavater seen: really shallow. No self- ruling Aspasia she, but a frail woman, mourning over her lot. Any peculiarity in her destiny seems accidental ; she is forced to this and to that to earn her bread forsooth I"' Woman ha3 Been pitied, and mourned over, ami sneered at, irom the oeginn of time until now, because she is woman and not man. In the few instances in which she has discovered a manly grasp of mind, it has been regretted for her by the world that she had not also a manly heart that in spite of hei intellect and genius she was still found makeing mis lakes and bewailing ilicm-impulsive more than reasonable, and in her weakness and dependence reaching out of herself ever lastingly and everlastingly. I for one would not have her "Deny her woman's nature with a manly scorn" 1 would not have her other than sue is nor, indeed, much better than she is, nn less man could be lifted up and made more worthey of her than it seems to me he is likely to be very speedily. That which we call her weakness her best strength, and that truthful belief in nobilitv and goodness which makes her dependent, is her finest ornament. In her arms and in her iieart there is al ways room for the poor outcast borne down by the harsher judgment of men there is no brand of shame, no murderous spot that she will not cover up with her white charitable bands, and though sbc sees them herself, refuse to have the world see and condemn. Much as I ad mire strength much as I worship geni us, the qualities which I most love in wo man, are those which are womanly. Alice Iary. Maple Sugar Crop. The State of New York produces more sugar lhan any other St-tte in the Union, except Louisiana. The estimate of the maple su gar production of that State for the pres ent year is twenty millions of pounds, which is valued.at two millions and a half of dollars. The maple sugar crop for the whole Union is estimated at 68,500,000. pounds, worlh $8,562,500, or very nearly equal lo. one-half the product from the sugar caue in the United States last year. I he increased price ol sugar has stimulated this production, which, during the very low price3 of sugar from 1850 lo 1854, hail caused the manufacture of maple sugar to fall off to almost nothing. A Model Husband. The model hus band allows his wife lo empty his pockets every night. Ho comes back from; the hrst corner to lace his wife s stays lor her. He drags tho haby around on all possible occasions, and all possible dis tances, lie is not ashamed to be seen going home with a chunk of liver in one hand, and a string of onions in the oilier. lie always goes out on the back stoop to smoke, and never steps his fool in ihe parler except en special invitation of his spouse, lie always comes m and goes out the back way, and reverently scrapes his feet winter and summer. He goes to the pump at the late hour of the night for a pitcher of water (the servant, poor thing being tired, "doing up" those laces. He never invites any one lo his house, and never gets acquainted, and is not allowed to speak with the gentlemen who call up on his wife. He gets up al all hours of the night without a pang, to put fresh coal on the fire, or to ".dump" the grate. He never has a night key, and if he comes to his house after nine o'clock at night.he roosts relributively on the front steps un. til morning. When be cat ves he never keeps a side bone or a second joint for himself, but gratefully takes what is left. He slaves all day the year round for three very indifferent meals daily, and the privilege of paying all the bills. He goes without suspender buttons for rooniD8, anu tabtons up nis waisioanns with pins and wooden skewers. He never talks to his wile's female acquaintances in a low tone, and would consider him self guilty of high treason should he pre sume to wink at a lady's pretty, maid. He sees bis children growing up around him defiant of himself, nor bashfully dares lo bint that strapping Bob is big enough to be doing something for himself. He dies, having lived fruitlessly, and a slave to'whiras and women, and is consoled as he bashfully draws his last breath in the presence of- his wife, by the . affectionate remark, that we're all poor critters," Buffalo Jiepubhe. ; ' m 1 Detailed Report of the Commissioners of Jefferson County for the year end uing on the first Monday of June 1857.

WM. WINN. je!7tf - Proprietor. The-Charge-AMEstLowPJoha , . Wentworth. ;, The Cincinnati Gazette of Wednes day, explains the charge, so eagerly tele graphed in tbe country,, that Hon. John, Wentworlh ex-Congressman, and now Mayor of Chicago,, had been arrested, charged with robbing the mails. The Gazette says : John Wentworlh, since his electionas. Mayor of Chicago, has shown a determi nation to break up the gambling houses, and brothels of that city, and has thus- ' made bitter enemies of a large part of the population The effect of this was seen yesterduy in a charge against him, fqr stealing mail bags, of which, the mo ment lie had a hearing, he was hon orably acquitted. Their spite has been, baffled now, but we shall not be surpri sed at some new outbreak of it. Chicago is evidently not yet ready for such radi cal refoims." The mail bags- found in Mr. WenJ worth's possession, had been sent to him. it appeared, filled with public documents, and he had. not taken the trouble, as it was possiblly not hid: duty, to return them . till they were asked; or sent for,.;.' The court therefore at once discharged him. The Douglas men in Chicago, seem to be mortified with the result of their recent persecution of mayor ' Wenwtorth, by charging him with stealing. mail bags. It was shown on the tr.ial,, that U; the re ception of: canvas bags containing public documents from the Department, without returning them was stealing then Dou glas had stolen a great many more than; Wentworlh. It is very evident, foo, they have great cause to De asiiameu. new "umier kicks iave ever been recorded in this country connected with party polities. We are aware (bat many of the pro-slavery Demo cracy descend to dishonorable acts, but we did not think they woujd, in any emer gency, descend quite sa low, as in this in stance. SaT The Buchanan slavedrivers of Ohio hold, themselves up as patterns of everything that is right, and declare that they alone are fit to manage affairs in this State. Look at the real fapt of, the case, and then judge, Yesterday, says the O. .S. Journal, we showed, from the official re cord, that the Medill administration let as a legacv to the Republican parly, out standing debts, for the payment of which no appropriation whatever had been made, of $015,915.75. Upon inquiry. , this morning at the Auditor's office we find that the above figures only represent the amount of tho Medill debt which was ac tually paid by the Republican adininistra- .! .1.. .1.- Jinrn ni uuii uunug me year xooov inero nro yet outstanding and unpaid of these Me dill debts upwards, of , One Hundred Thousaad Dollars which the Legislature at us last session had to provide ways and means to settle and pay . off. : Such are a few of the facts connected with pur State finances when, the Medill dynasty was driven out and the Republican ad ministration came in, Without mcteri- ally increasing our tax. levy, and by cut ting down useless expenditures, the Re publicans, in. the fkst'year of their power, paid off over half a million of the .Midill debt and this year they will pay off One Hundred Thousand Dollars : more,, and square the accounts.
