( BOARD Of PUBLIC WORKS, ' - JOHN L. MARTIN, of Butler. Contest for Congressional Nomination. "The indiscretion of some of the editors, in this District, in the .interest of Mr. Bingham, by charging the oiher candidates forth honor to which ho again aspires, with " corruption and a desire to get their hands into the National Treasury" has excited upon the part of their friends, a spirit of deep seated disploasure. We would have been glad to have seen this matter pass off quietly, and without ei ther crimination or re crimination ; and each would have been the case, if the special friends of Mr. Bingham's " eoro, .nation" bclk within and beyond the limits of the district, had not been more zealous than wise.. ' To talk of Mr. B. being " the candidate r the people, and that none but corrupt demagogues and aspirants for place, being opposed to his nomination" for a third term is simply ridiculous. . Mr. Bingham has made a respectable Representative, but it was never the intention to crown him king of the 2lst Congressional pis trict of Ohio ; and an attempt to do so, will prove to be a signal failure. We have given space to two communi cations on the subject this week, believing that private citizens in the Republican ranks have as good a right to bo heard in opposition to the nomination of Mr. Bingham, as interested editors we don't aay monetary interest have - to inflict upon the people their lengthy twaddle in favor. '. ' , ,. ,We have other communications, from different parts of the district, ' and altho' they are from highly respectable sources, and from Republicans of the ".first wa ter,'' we shall be compelled to suppies& some of them, on account of the severity of the style. ' ' We advise all who write to avoid re crimination; the articles we publish to day have quite enough of that material in them ; but the maxim is as true in poli tics as it is in physic, that " violent dis eases require violent remedies." Mr. B's agents have thrown down, the glove and the friends of "rotation" have picked it up. Who will win is ret to be seen. To our mind il is very clear that the victory of one of the parties, will prove its greatest defeat. To Make Newspapers Go Safer. Frequent complaints are made by iso lated subscribers respecting the non recipt. We are ghd to say sueh difficul ties are fast being obviated by the very means which an exchange recommends in the following clever paragraph. That many more may profit by it, we annex the paragraph : "We would like to have all single pack els doubled, Uipled, quadrupled, or more, if more might be. It is troublesome to send out these single packets very troublesome in proportion to the gain. We can put up two or three papers for the mail nearly as soon as we can one. Besides, we always realize a feeling of anxiety in regard to these small packets, fn sending one paper by itself so far. We feel for them in their lonely and un certain journey. As to the large packets, their- very bulk will command some re spect from Post Office clerks. But these solitary little fellows, in their seem ing insignificance.may probably be kicked into some corner, or miss their way, and be last among the hills and hollows. A small packet does not arrive so certainly at its destination as the large one. We ' have a remedy to propose for this state of things. Let each subscriber wo gets a "single packet," now that the paper is so cheap, obtain another subscriber or two, whose papers may go along with his for company. It is a pity to have one paper lake such long journeys as some of them do, "solitary and lone." Give them company, and they will travel more ' swiftly, and reach their destination more uurely." . . Young. America in Utah. The correspondent of the New Orleans Picayune, writing from Camp Scott, after giving many interesting details in relation to the army at that post, and a description ' of some Mormons on their way back to the Slates, ihus writes: ''The proportion of young children with the party was very large : the most pre 'rocious little imps imaginable. Young ' America, m exemplified in New Orleans ' or New York, would be the Innocence of ' babyhood benide them. I called one lit- t'e fellow, hardly higher than my knee, to me, and asked him his name.

For tbe True American. -Ma. Eorron: I have witnessed with deep regret, the course of things in the present Congressional canvass. I can but deplore, tbe weakness and falsity of de signing men, which threaten the disrup tion of the Republican patty, in Ohio. No . one can doubt, that if the people were left alone, free to aet according to the rules and usages of the Republican party ; that it must gain : ia atrength and vigor. If, however, the schemes secretly set on foot, months ago, are not checked by the honest voters, its doom will be sealed. To my mind this propo sition is perfectly clear. There is no Republican, but knows that the party came into pqwer upon the principle of notation in Office;" and without the recognition of that rule, the party would not live a day. It is essential to a gov ernment of the people ; it is Republican ism itself. And should the uartv nban- i j don its fundamental doctrines, and set up a new creed, no one is bound to sup port its nominees, for they have been placed in nomination in violation of its cherished rules. Frequent changes in the Representa tives, is a requirement of the Constitution, and its observance was urged by the early Fathers of the Republic, as the means of purifying our national councils. Not withstanding, we have had long and valu able experience in its application : the wisdom of the last delegation in Congress from Ohio, have discovered that the theo ry of our forefathers was wiong, and that the requirements of the constitution rested upon a false basis, that rotation in office was a mere vagery, and that the public weal not only requires their return to Congress, but that they should be kept there for life. Months ago the country was flooded with letters from meddle some persons, outside the district to which they were written, professedly confiden tiaj, urging the re-nomination of this, or that, partioular member of Congress, thus secretly forestalling public opinion, and fraudulently packing the conventions to secure the re-nomination pf the in cumbents. In addition to Uiis unfair and secret effort to pack the convention, the menial service of a low grade of letter writers was employed that to the dis grace of the Ohio press, made it teem weekly with fulsome puffs of this, or that, " worthy, ' able and distinguished membir of Congress." But to the crown ing argument in favor of their re-election, and the continued receipt of three thou sand dollars per year, are tbeyindebted to one of these scurrilous letter writers, to the N. Y. Times, to the effect that the whole North, must continue their members of Congress without change for life, be cause the Southern States do that thing; that the Republicans must trample their principles under foot, and at once abandon the rotation principle, and as a parly, solemnly declare, that God in his Provi dence, had at last provided the people of Ohio with the only men that possess the ability to serve them in the national councils, and therefore, the people must meet, and proformu crown them in their places for life. To such an unwarranted, and extravi- gant demand, as applicable to this 21st District, I naturally turned to the record to see what faithful ability the Hon. Jho. A. Bingham could show, during the three sessions he had been a member. I asked what bill he had introduced ? What reso lution he had proposed! What report he had made! or What question he had submitted ! and to all these, the record answered, none. ' Finding no record, I turned to the subsidized press, that issued one continued stream of laudation in bis favor, and asked what he had done' to which the Herald and Republican an swered that we must imitate the South, and school our men in public life. I knew ne had dodged many important questions, had franked his old speeches vemped anew to all parts of the District, and bad filled the mail bags with flower seeds, to his friends. Finding no act of Mr. Bingham's that warranted such inju dicious and partizan conduct, on the part of what should be an impartial press, it was but natural to inquire, whether there was any truth in the claim, that the South never changed their Representatives', but kept them in Congres foi life. JNo absurdity ever appeared that did not have its honest' advocates deluded they may have been, but still honest- How many honestly believed in the cxia tence of the Sea Serpent? How many deluded followers of Miller, honestly be heved, that on a certain day they were to ascend to Heaven ! How : manv of the disciples of Jo Smith, are to day, ready to test their faith oh fields of blood, and die in a sanguinary contest for their reliainn and their wives. 7 Great as these absurdi ties are, they are as true as the reason assigned by these disinterested patriots, or their interested friends, why , they should ,-,be continued in office for life, at extravagant salaries, to wit: because the Southern States chool their men in of fice. Let us look' at the facts: compare Virginia and Maryland, with Massachu setts and New Jersey, two of the original slave and two of the original free states. From the formation of the Government, to the end of the 27 ih Congress, Virginia has bad twenty-four Senators and (wo hundred and sixteen ': Representatives, . ' -. ' i '' t' t , ' - t- Maryland has had twenty-two Senators and one hundred and twenty Representa tives.' How is it with the free states t Massachusetts has had in the same time twenty-two Senators and one hundred and thirteen Representatives, while New Jer sey has had twenty-two Senators, snd seventy-nine Represenibtives,thu8 betwen these old States, the difference for totation is largely in favor of the southern States, The comparison is much more striking between the new, than .the old States. Take for instance Mississippi, which was admitted in A. D: 1811, and Illinois which was admitted in 1818. Mississippi has had thirteen Senators and twenty-two Representatives, while Illinois, a free State, has had but eleven Senators and seventeen Representatives. As a further illustration, take Ohio and Kentucky, Ohio has had eighteen Senators, and one hundred and eighteen Representatives, while Kentucky has had nineteen Sena tors and one hundred and six Represent- atives, though possessing about one half the population of Ohio, and entitled under the Constitution t about one half the Representation in Congress. These facts are sufficient to stamp with infamy the false assumption, that the South do not favor rotation in office, and blasts the last hopes 6f the imprudent de mand of Mr. Bingham and his friends, that he should be continued in Congress for life. Now while the district has many wor thy and capable men who deserve a nomi nation, who is it, that is so blind that he cannot see the gulf into which he plungeB the Republican party, by the re nomination of Mr. Bingham ! Is he so stupid that he cannot see around him in your own city, scoreB of men of sound Republican views, that will not vote for him if nominated ? and this is but a sara pie of the feeling of the whole district. Then why weaken the Republican parly! Why seek the nomination of a candidate, when his defeat must follow as a legili mate consequence ! Why sacrifice -the great cause of freedom, to the servility o tbe merest venal partizan! Why throw off the character of an independent fiee man, and become the whipper-in to the impudent demands of selfishness. When I see these things around me, plain as a meridian sun, and hear the Herald and Republican, disparaging other candidates to laud their interested favorite, and wit ness your county committee stealthily inviting Mr. Bingham to address them to the exclusion of every other candidate, cannot help but deplore Ihe weakness and unfairness of such raeu, and knowing hu man nature as I do, I cannot help but tremble for the future of the Republican party. I have long .been a consistent and ar dent Republican; but I protest against the party deviating from its time-honored principles, and thus declare to my fellow Republicans, the dangers that threaten. JUSTICE. For The True American. Mr Editok ; In your paper of last week, you noticed that "Hon. John A' Bingham, delivered an excellent speech in the Court House, last Saturday, in which he ably vindicated his course in Congress against the charges preferred by the opposition papers." The non. gentleman .may have done all this; but did he prove from his course in Congress for two terms, that he has earned (what has not been asked by any Congressman in the district for a quarter of a century) a third term! The twelve hundred democrats and one thousand of the Republicans in this County, who aided in the election of the Hon. gentleman for two terms, would have been glad to have heard him explain how he happened to agree so well and so long in Congress with the ''Fire-Eat ers ot the South, and Abolitionists ot the North, in obstinately resisting the. Constitutional right of a majority of the citizens of an organized Territory, to decide for themselves, the form of Re publican Government, under which they toish to be admitted as a state into the Union. They ivould have listened also with - pleasure, to a vindication of his course and conduct on the passage of the law raising his wages from eight lb six teen dollars a day, which Horace Greely pronounced the "act of abominations" of the last Republican Congress, and the support of which by the Hon. Cooper K. Watson, of north western Ohio,' lost him his seat in Congress at the end of his first term. If Mr. Bingham voted for this legislative monstrosity, or if he dodged a vole oh it, or if he has made no effort to lo have it rep ealed during his three years in Congress, a large majority of his friends in the district would have been pleased to have heard his excuse tor so doing. Again, and lastly, if thirteen thousand dollars of the money of the people received by the Hon. gentleman for being in Con gress two terms, without offering a single bill or resolution, Or making a single mo tion, doing any act, for the benefit of his constituents, his reasons for being "oppo sed to rotation in office" would be care fully considered, and perhaps a third term awarded him with six thousand five hundred dollars more wages, . opon his giving satisfactory assurances, that he will : yet render his constituents ' some appreciable icrvjcr, COLUMBIANA. C.&P.S.S.Trip. On -Wednesday 'last, -at '8 A. MV," we look our seat m the pleasant car of the C. & P. R, R.; bound for Cleveland, where we arrived safely al 1 o'clock, P. M. On our way we dined at Alliance, with D. Sourbeck, Esq. We had heard much of the excellent accommodations at this popular house, but must say, that, it far excels anything we had anticipated. Mr. S. is certainly a most accomplished landlord, and is the patronizerof the pub- .lie,' rather than the public of him. Never pass Alliance without taking dinner if you know what's good for the "inner man. After spending two hours pleas antly in Cleveland, we took the return train to Hudson, and from thence to Cuy ahoga Falls, where we arrived at 7 o'clock, M. 24 hours were agreeably spent with an aged mother, and other near relatives, and at 7 o'clock, P.

The institution of the Sabbath, whether regarded as ol a human policy or divine ordinance, is one of the most beautiful and blessed inheritances of man. It has a divinity in its adaptation to the material necessities of our race as a day of rest, in which to refresh and recreate the wearied energies of tbe body but the higher divinity lies in the divorce it brings to ihe spirit from the pursuit end care of temporal and corrupting things, leading it to a clearer and nearer contemplation of God, its relation to the immaterial, and its destiny beyond this fleeting life. Its periodical frequency grasps the soul in firm bonds, and hemming it around in association in unison with its acknowl edged sacredness, has done more to dis cipline the mind, and purify ihe heart of society, than all the probjems of proud and shifting philosophy. Like the sublime leseons of Christ, the Sabbath-contains the profoundest proofs of its origin in the wisdom and goodness of God, in its common acceptance by enlightened men, and the fulness of satis faction it gives to his soul and bodily long ings. Between nations and races who observe, and those who do not observe the Sabbath, there is drawn a line, on the opposite borders of which, alike, rests the evidence of it its beauty and bene ficence. On the Sabbath side are civili zation, intelligence, industry, art, science, peace and prosperity man elevated truly and nobly in the image of God. On the other side aie barbarism, ignorance, su persition, war and misery man degra ding the image of God. The Sabbath is not arbituary nor con ventional. The mora intelligently it is observed, the more necessary harmonious and beautiful it appears ; and its temporal economy however great, becomes secon dary and insignificant contrasted with its spiritual good.

Their work is earned on in crowded, unventilated rooms, where their frames are kept bent to their labor until their eyes ache, and their limbs refuse to . perform their duty. They have a short, painful life, and an early grave. In a recent speech, Lord Shaftesbery said that many of those young women had been trained gently and ten derly, in delicate and happy homes; possessing all the virtues and tenderness that belong to the female sex, and ren derei by those very characteristics more obedient, more unmurmuring, more slavishly subject to the authority and tyranny of those who are put over them. liis lordship adds that they have no al ternative between submission and the street door, and then asks, "Is the con dition of such a young woman one whit better than the most wretched slave in the Southern States of America !"

Barker stabbed Beard, the knife entering the side, severing the lungs and entering the heart, killing him instantly. The citizens were much excited. Barker was taken to the watch house, and thence to the jail. II was taken from the jail by the citizens and marched to the Court House yard. A temporary scaffold was erected from the Court House window, and at a a, ai., Barker was swnng off.

' j The Alarm bells called out the fire epartment at about 7 o'clock, last eve- ing, the supposition being that the origin of the fire was within the city precincts.a lofty column of smoke towering up seems ingly in the neighborhood of the "Point"; On repairing to the supposed scene of conflagration,' however, ii was dicovered that the smoke proceeded from a steam boat in names, lying at the dock of the Marine Railway, a short distance below "Saw Mill Run," and the rumor spread ing through tbe city, thousands assembled on the wharf along water street, excited spectators of the melancholy catastrophe. As it was a considerable distance lo the place where the boats laid, and the jour ney would necessarily be on foot, no en gine left the city, and but one or two hose carriages, were taken down, though it turned out there Was the greatest need of assistance. On reaching the locale of the disaster at about half past eight, the reporter of this journal, encountered a scene of desolation, magnified by the fact that against its extension there' were only interposed the strong handand willing nearts oi a iew boatmen seconded py me by standers. Our firemen, could not have arrived in time, (and supposing the fire was in Manchester, several of our best companies proceeded even that dis lance) would have found that employment in which they delight, the rescuing of properly trpm threatened destruction. The conflagration commenced in the Arctic, a fine boat which had lately drop ped down to that point for the purpose of laying up Tor the 6eason, and was first discovered in her stern, in proximity to the wheel, but directly was developed beneath her deck throughout her entire length, and in a few moments she was entirely enveloped by the consuming ele ment, The flames spread to the GreaU West, which was laying alongside ot the Arctic, and in a very brief period she too was in a blaze, and entirely beyond res cue by such effort as could be put forth under the circumstances. The ''Luzerne," Capt. Bennet, which is undergoing repair.in the vicinity of the spot where the other boats laid, was re garded, also, as lost, but, although ignited several times, by manly and persistent exertion upon the part of her Captain and crew, she was protected and finally saved. Ihe lumber bouse belonging to the Railway, next took fire, and a large amount of timber was destroyed, with the building itself. Mr. Borland, the super intendent, estimated the loss at not less than $1,500 to $2,000. No clue to the origin of the fire can be ascertained, two peisons only being on the Arctic when it was discovered, and they, leaving it sud denly, in the excitement which ensued were unrecognized, and only remembered when the question arose as to cause. It was generally supposed, upon the ground, that it was a piece of incendiarism. The Great West sunk at obout nine o'clock, after burning to the water's edge, and when we left, the Arctic was almoet con sumed. The former boat wts commanded by Capt. Devenny, and the latter by Capt. McCullough. In the hurry-scurry which prevailed at the scene of conflagration, we were unable to procure, reliably, the facts relating to ownership, insurance, etc. If ilts.
