A Picture of Ohio in 1828.
George W. Kendall writes to the New Orleans Picayune an account tot an expe rience in Ohio, as follows: .' -' The month of October, 1828, found me at Sandusky City, Ohio, still a boy but a man grown, with less than five dollars' in my pocket, and with no friend save a good constitution and a good constitution, let me here say, is one of the best friends a young man ever possessed. During the summer I had travelled the whole length Erie Canal, and had run the gauntlet of i-ti t ii .i . . ... emus, levers, ana an me His wuu which Western X ew York was then afflicted. was now on my way to Cincinnati, short of money, but full of hope. But how lo get to Cincinnati ! I do not recollect that there was at that time any regular convey ance in the shame of a stage coach, and even had there been, my pockets were not sufficiently plethoric to permit me to in dulge in any such extravagance. Thus situated, 1 resorted to the first and most primitive mode of locomotive mentioned in ancient history I "footed it every step oi me way 10 utncmnau. We passed on through the little town of Bucyrus, Tiffin, and others, then just springing into existence, and everywhere it was sickness, wretchedness and want. In some families half were down with billious attacks or chills and fevers; in others, every soul was unable to rise. Third rate saddle bag doctors, with fourth rate medicines, were riding about from place to place young men learning their trade killing more than they cured Corn meal, cracked in rude iron mills at tached to trees, afforded all the Breadstuff, ranced pork and many did not even have that, was all the meat; coffee and sugar were luxuries rarely seen; the rmlk from the few poor cows we saw, looked as though it bad been skimmed both at the top and the bottom. Much of the time while we were on the journey, we encountered cold, raw rains, and roads knee deep in mud ; in clear dars the sun would come out at noon day, dry and scorching hot; while the nights would be damp and cheerless, and the mornings fogsrv a dense miasma, in to which you could drive a peg, seemed to brood over the land, i ou could 6ee chills and fever everywhere. Despair sat npon every countenance, and I saw but few peo ple on the route who would not have left the country at once, Lad possessed those important essentials strength and the means. Corn they could raise,, yes ; but every acre of land reclaimed from the dense forests, cost a world of labor, of suffering, of sickness, and of death. Such is a hastily drawn picture of what I saw in Ohio during the fall of 1828. I have not half told my story, for I have no time and space. I the year 1829 I was in portions of In diana went up to Terre Haute, and saw not a little of the country; in many parts it was even worse than in Ohio, for there the dreaded milk sickness obtained to such an extent that one was just as much afraid of a bowl of milk as a bite of a rallW snake either would kill in twenty-four hours. And besides the chills and fevers and billious diseases seemed to be the rule, while a thoroughly sound and healthy per . son the exception. And discouragement, too, was plainly marked on half the faces I saw, and thousands would have gone back to tho;r homes in the older States had they possessed the means. Again, a few yers after, I traveled pretty much all over Illinois, Wisconsin and parts of Miss ouri and Iowa, and almost everywhere I saw suffering, sickness and discontent. uood crops were made tbere is no deny ing it; but after they were made they were valueless it cost more to get them to market than they were worth. In fall and winter raw piercing rams, coldand cut ting winds, end deep stick ly mud were everywhere, while in summer the sun beat down upon the unprotected prairies with blistering force. The Little Quakeress who was Desperately in Love. 'An amusing matrimonial story is told of the olden time in New England. It so fell out that. two young people became 'very much smitten with each other,- as young people do. The yonng woman's : father was a wealthy Quaker the young man was respectable. The father could stand bo 6uch union, and resolutely oppo - sed, and the daughter dare not disobey openly. She "met him by moonlight," j when she pretended never to see him and she pined and wasted in spite of her '' self.' She was really in love a state of sighs and tears, which women . oftener r reach in imagination than reality. Still . the father remained inexorable. : - Time passed on, and the rose on Mary's . damask cheek passed off. She let no con cealment, like a worm in the bud, prey on .' that damask cheek, however, but when the father asked her why she pined, she always told him. The old gentleman was a wid ; ower, and he loved his daughter , dearly. Had it been a widowed mother who had Mary in charge, a widow's pride would . have given away before the importunities of a daughter. Men are not, however, , stubborn in such matters, and when the father saw that his daughter's heart was really set upou the match, he supprised her one day by breathing out , "Mary, rather than mope to death, thee bad better marry as soon as thee chooses, . and whom thee pleases." . And then what did Mary f Wait till the birds of the air had told her swain of the chang6, or nnlil her father had time to . change his mind again T . Not a bit of it. She clapped her neat plain bonnet on her . head and walked directly to the house of her intended as the street would carry ,. her.: She walked into the house without knocking for knocking was not then fashionable and she found the family just sitting down to dinner. Some little commotion was exhibited at so unexpected and so unusual an appari tion as the heiress in the widow's cottage, hut she heeded it not. John looked up in quiringly. She walked directly up to him and put both his hands into her's. ' "John," said she, "father says I may ' have thee." - - : And John got np directly from his dinner-table and went to the parson's. In just twenty-five minutes they were man and wife. The Camal Experiment in Texas. The power of endurance of the camels introduced into Texas was very severely tested during the last summer by Capt. Wm. H. Ecuels, of the Topograpical En gineers, who started with thera the lat ter part of June, to make a reconnoisance in Northwestern Texas. The country thro' which they had to travel was exceedingly rough, rocky and hilly, and destitute of water for long distances. The grass was all dried up, so that there was no forege - for the animals. All the water for the par ty, both men and beasts, had to be carried on the backs of sthe camels and males. Some of the hills traversed were so steep that the camels were obliged to resort U the feat of walking on their knees, to pre vent their load from falling. No water was met with after leaving the liver Pecos, a brackish stream, on the 29th of Jane, until the 4th of July, after s journey of 137 miles through the barren and difficult country above described " " - .. Owing to the supply of water felling short, the camels did not hare a drop of water dnnncr all this time six days the mules were allowed none after July 1st, and the men composing the expedition were put ou short allowance, and on the last day there were but two drinks of water for each man. All suffered terribly from thirst. The strength of both men and animals failed. Goods were abandoned because the animals could not carry them, some of the mules broke down entirely, and were left in tbe rear, while several of the men were sick and declared they must give up before they reached the stream, which saved the whole party from the hor rible fate which stared them in tbe face. Being warned of the consequences, howev er the latter persevered. Tbe animals would go to the water casks, draw out the bungs with their teeth, and gnaw at the bung holes. The mercury stood at 100 deg. in the shade. The last day but one the camels bel lowed continually, owing probably to the suffering from thirst. Still they bore the hardships aud fatigue of the terrible march well. On the day that water was discov ered the cornels manifested a knowledge of the nearness of water ten miles before they reached it, by increasing their speed so that they had to be held back. The water reached was the head of San Fran cisco creek, at Camel's Hump mountain. The next day camels were sent back with water for the abandoned mules. One of the mules in camp died and the rest look ed Ladl) . Severn! of the men were sick. It then appears that the camels have ful ly vindicated their reputation for endur ance and usefulness in their new homes. The mules held out remarkably well, but water was dealt out to them for two days after the camels got their last drink at the Pecos. From the Mails. The remains of Geo. Hauk and wife who lived alone, about one mile and a half from Marion, Ind., were found amid the ruins of their house, on Sunday last, which had been consumed tbe night before. In dications showed that the old people were the victims of a cold mercenary murder. They were known to have a considerable sum of money iu their possession, aud it is thought to secure this the murderers first killed the old people, and afterwards fired the house that evidence of their guilt might be destroyed. The Tribune Washington correspondent says the tenor of the dispatches from Com. rorter concerning the insurrection ol ne groes nt Panaui, is that they are some 500 in number, well armed, and that they seem bent upon plunder only. Both the autborites and American citizens there de sired the interposition of the British aud United States naval forces, lhcse, to gether, number some 400. It is nlso stated that great'lerror exists at Aspinwall, and that indeed but little security is full in the absence of armed American or Brit ish vessels. The Beirut correspondent of the Boston Traveller writes, under dale of September 6th: "Thousands have been clothed, and more than ten thousand daily receive their food from 'the hands of American missionaries, who constitute the distributing agency of the committee. The hospital establish ed from the funds of the committee has accommodated aa many as seventy-five of the sick and dying, and has room for one hundred. Rev. C. V. A. Van Dyck, of the Syrian Mission, has nobly devoted his time, bis services as physician, and Dr. R, G.Barclay, United Stales Vice-Consul, as surgeon to this hospital ; an the soup-kitchen is still dispensing to nursing mothers and infirm invalids the savory and -nutritious soups which infuse something like health and vigor into these drooping, starving people, whoso iufants have been dying daily in large numbers for the want of proper food. But great as the mortal ity among them has been, it would have been far greater but for the timely relef af forded them." Unpaid Letters to go to the Dead Letter Office. The Postmasters Gener al has just issued the following important order. "Whereas, by the act of the 3rd of March, 1855, the postage npon all letters except such as are entitled to pass free be tween places in the United States, is re quired to be paid ; and whereas, the Depart ment, through courtesy, has hitherto ' at considerable labor aud expense notified the parties addressed in all instances in which the writers faild to pro-pay, that their let ters would be forwarded on receiving the postage due thereon ; and whereas, instead of diminishing, tbe number of such letters continue to increase, thus allowing the omission to prepay is intentional ; it is there- tore ordered that from and after the nrst day cf November, 1860, all such unpaid letters be sent to tbe dead letter office, to be disposed of in like manner as other dead letters." 3TGeo. E. Pugh, is the only man who supported Douglas iu the Senate. He an nounced that if Douglas was slaughtered at Charleston he would take his carcass home by way of lakes and exhibit it to the young men of the country. This minds me of an anecdote. In Cincinnati there wsa maiden lady who meet with a misfortune, and she employed an old darkie to take away and bury the child. He was to do it in the strictest secrecy, and so one evening he came with a cloak and march ed off. with solemn and stately tread, up the 6treet came an acquaintance who call ed out to him, "Sam !" "Sh-sh" whisper ed Sam. "Hullo," called out the other, "I've got a bit, come over and take a drink." "Sh-sh," said Sam, solemnly, 're a funeral. Laughter. So Geo, E. Pucrb. when a Republican or a Breck- enridge roan calls out to him to stop a bit, will whisper, "sn sn, l se ajunerai. ; HOOF SKIRTS. ; WV-IW -w-t nM n.it .4 4Um TtnttK STOltE and look a them before buying elsewhere. iucap auu goou. : ; WILLOW WAGONS, -OAHM, 4.C., just recslred at the J BOOK STORK.
