J. CASKEYj - Editor. THURSDAY,:::::::::: JAN. 31, 1661. When anybody ask yon what the Legis lature of Ohio i doing, tell them, "notliing." That's what the members thenMelres s-.y, and they ought to kow. fIt is not believed that any altact npon Washington is seriously meditated, so long as Maryland adheres to the Union. jJThe' Richmond En quirer says:. , Virginia cannot, and Kill not, agree to any tneh compromise as the Crittenden amend ment." ' JTThe new Governor of Pennsylvania had sibont twenty appointments to make. ; Tbe offi cers were insignificant, hot there irtre one thousand and seventy-fire applicants. ' HfThere " me thing in the Georgia seeesMua business.' The late traitor of the Treasury Department, Cobs, iras a candidate far delegate, and was beaten.' . tTAliXAXDn H. Stetiss, of Georgia, has destroyed his repntation as a man of sense and patriotism by signing the ordinance of secession of his State. tyA bill to repeal the Personal Liberty law of Rhode Island has passed both the Senate sad House of Representatives of that State by large majorities. 55Whrn Mr. Sewabd's speech was an nounced, the Southern papers expressed them selves deeply interested. But they do not spread it before their readers. With fow ex ceptions they neglect it entirely, or falsify it most abominably. ffTbe Rev. Dr. Hawks, of New Tork, at tended Lola Moxtez, during her last illness, and administered spiritual consolation. Mr. Hawks said at her funeral, that he had never known a case of more sincere repentance than that of Lola. , JJfJ The French are entering upon a great ex periment of cultivating Cotton in Algeria. They propose to find ll eir slaves in China, and call them Coolies. It will be necessary for them to open the slave trade in Coolies. . gyThe fugitive slave, of whose arrest at Cleveland, we gave an account lust week, has been retained to her owner. Arrangements fur a rescue had been made at Lima, Stark county, but was prevented by the train on wltich the girl was being couveyed bnck.goin" through the place, at double the usual speed. JJpThe Grand Jury now sitting at Washing ton city have indicted that notorious thief and traitor," Ex-Secretary Floyd, ol treason and theft, but when they want him he won't be found, or they won't want him until they know the bird has flown. JThe Louisiana papers exult greatly ov.t their booty, in the Baton Rouge arsenal. Fifty thousand stand of arms, and other things in pro portion, without cost, help them along wonder fully. Their happiness would be complete if they only had the "big guns" from the Pitts burgh arsenal, which Mr. Flotd intended they should have. lyThe Emperor of France, at his New Tear's Reception, expressed to the American Minister, Mr. Facle.tkx. of Virginia, a hope that the American Union would never be dis solved.' We wonder whether the Minister was able to echo the sentiment. FArLKiritB was a sort of Abolitionist a few years ago, and is com pelled to compensate for his bad record by ex-a.-dingly rabid professions of pro-slavery ism. lMr. LixcoLx. it is said, receives about two bushels of letters daily. ' Tbe unimportant ones office seeking epistles are thrown into the fire unread. That's the right way to serve them, and if he would employ a man w hose duty it should be to kick out of his house the busy bodies who visit him for the purpose of assisting him to select his Cabinet officers, it would be in the right way teaching them a Us on in good manners. ,. ,r ... 3fThe Rhett faction among the rebels at Charleston are reported to be dissatisfied with the delay of the prudent Pickf-vs in attacking Fort Sumter, and Major Axdeusox is prepared to encounter at any moment a suddcu attack from the excited populace, even against the wishes of their own leaders. He is about to send away all non combat ans from the fort, and the wives and children of the soldiers may be soon expecb-d in New Tork. . . ; jyTho Legislature of Virginia propose to make "a strong appeal to tho Federal Govern ment to stay its hand and avoid all acts which may lead to a collision, pending he meditation ot Virginia." Docs Virginia mean that if tho Floridians and others, who may be "so dispo sed," should attack Fort Pickens, or tbe Caro . liniaas should bombard Fort Sumter, the Gov ernment should "stay its hand" so far as to sur render them? When the people talk of staying the hand of Government, they should know what they talk about, 1 : . - - Mastla.m. The Baltimore Sun gives it up, that Governor Hicks will not call together, ei tlier the Legislature, or a Slate Convention, at any rate, not until nf.er Mr. Lincoln's inagura tion. This is the only sensible course, although no approved by disunionisls per te, like the ed itors of the Sun. It will be time enough to go into revolution when there is some cate for it. but until the new. President devclnpshis policy. Bobody can know that it will not be entirely satisfactory, not merely to Maryland, but to the whole South. Mr. Ntisox, of Tennessee, made, in the Bouse of Ri-pres.-Dt.il ives on the 25th, a vigorous speech against Secession. He scouted the idea of being coerced into rebellion by South Caro Una. He takes substantially the same ground as Messrs. Clemess of Virginia, and Etbeudgi of Tennessee. These brare and loyal gentle men of the Border Slates are winning lor them selves an enviable place in public esteem by tbe gallant stand they are -naking for the Con stitution and the Union. Mr. Hamilton of Tex as will spjak next week on the sitne side. t3T"It does not seem to have entered into the imaginations of the Secession politicians, that what they call tlio "rights of the South." so far from being preserved by disunion, will be de stroyed, and that the security ot slave property will be impaired, instead of iucrcased. They talk as though all their trouble with the slavery question would conic to an cad when tbey dis solve the Union. Those troubles will ouly liave commenced. There was deep import in Mr. Sewasd's remarks, lhal the I'niou restrained the anti-slavery sentini' ot within constitutional limits. The Secessionists would do well to pon der upon it Tally Six. Louisiana has "gone out" in more senses than one and now, according to law, she re verts to France. This makes the sixth Scee- sioner, and of all of them. Louisiana, on the re peal of the duty upon sugar, will descend the deepest into the valley of humiliation. Clam- land Herald. - S ' . ' Tally One on the Other Side. We can turn over the stick now, and tall v one on the side against secession. Kansas has come into the Union. This time tallying, we can cut a big notch, for Kansas counts heavy. She has fought her bloody way into the Union, while other States are trying to fight their bloodless way out of it. Look at Kansas quietly taking her place in the galaxy of States, while Florida is blustering out of it. Tbe one an empire of itself; full of brave hearts and stout hands "sons of liberty" who glory in labor and despise servitude.' The other about as large as two medinm sized conn ties in Ohio; with a population far less than our most populous county; a land the resort of inva lids and the abode of wreckers; ready to be bitten ir two and appropriated by Georgia and Alabama; and a State that has only been able to keep the breath of life in her body by an In dian war that she has nnrscd at government ex pense for the past third of a century. Cleve land Herald. Democratic State Convention. The State Ccnvention held by the Democracy of Ohio, in Columbus last week, did nothing bat what any honest member of that party mnJ well be ashamed cf. Had it been made up of the worst traitors in South Caolina. its proceed ings could not have been better calculated to please the South, than they will, coming from the so-called Democratic party in Ohio. We notice that the Bkeceexbidge press are particu larly jubilant over its doings, and compliment the Douglas democrats for so soon returning to their reason. The honest portion of the party are indebted lo Judge Ket. of Cincinnati, for a manly vindication of tbeir integrity and patri otism. He was one of the few in that Conven tion who had the courage and virtue to apeak of nil the North, as well as those of the South, as his "fellow citizens" and brethren. He would not suffer the Convention, without earnest pro test, to denounce even by implication, his fel low citizens of tho-North as enemies to the country, and he protested with noble indigna tion, against the igaoble'demagogucry of the p.trty hacks who proposed, for partizan purposes, to commit the masses of the Democracy to prin ciples which he knew they utterly despise and condemn. .- The management of that Convention demon strated very clearly the intentions of the lead ers. : They proposed independence of party, and desire to meet Republicans upon the "com mon altar of their country." and then proceeded to do everything of a partizan character that was in the power of a Committee on Resolu tions composed in the main of worn out hacks to accomplish. Professing desires to make peace with the Republicans, they proceeded to insult them in the bitterest language of un merited reproach it was possible for them to invent. Z. & C. R. R.-Annual Election lion. The stockholders of the C. Z. C. R. R. met at the office of the company in Akron, on the 9th i n st. , and elected Directors for the ensuing year as follows: Simon Perkins, Akron; J. D. Cnmmins. Ak ron; D. L. King. Akron; M. W. Henry, Akron: Jno. S. Gilchrist, Springfield E. B. Ellsworth, Hudsos; R. K. Enos, Millcrsburg. ' At a meeting of the Board or Directors on the same day, officers were elected as follows: Simon Perkins President and Superintend ent.' Edward Mize Secretary and Treasurer. Wm. Lapius Road Master. 1 Cure for Diphtheria. The State Journal says it is informed that a sure specific for that dreadful disease Dyptheria and sore throat, now prevailingto such an alarm ing extent, is Davis' Pain Killer. It is used to gargle the throat and to bathe the neck; for a gargle mix about two parts of water to one of Pain Killer, and it will quickly cure the disease and never fail if taken in time. As soon as there is any soreness in the throat, gargle with Pain Killer and water without delay. Many of our leading physicians recommend this treat ment, and -it should be made known to the world, and we advise every one so afflicted to give it one good trial. It is sold by medicine dealers generally. The Virginia Invitation. The Legislature of Virginia invites commis sioners from all the Stales to meet for consulta tion at Washington on the 4th of February. By a special message Gov. Dexsisos has com municated the invitation to the Legislature, and with great propriety, recommended the appoint ment of such commissioners. "Come, let us reason together" is good Scripture doctrine, and there cannot be any chance that the cause of the Union will be damaged by such sonsnltation. Indeed, had both sections of our country talked more with each other, and less at each other, the great gulf sow parting us might be easily bridged.' . tSTTwo or three self-authorized officers have been investigating the probable feeliucs of the soldiers of the navy, about the crews, with the toiiowing result: Of about 17,000 army soldiers. 8,000 hare no feclinss whatever on the matter: 5,000, chiefly Irish, would desert, if they could ao so conveniently, sooner than go South on a h.!stile errand, and 2,000 straight Yankees "go in for fighting." In the navy, 5,000 bluejack ets, at least, are "Union men, at any price," while the service would lie better off, just now, without the remainder. The marines obey or ders without comment. The morale of the ar my is superior to that of the navy. STThe time of Congress is mostly taken up in cussing and discussing propositions to save the Union. The number introduced is about equal to the number of States in the Union. The progres made in the work, is best indicated by the number of States that have gone out since they commenced it. Neither plan is like ly to be adopted, and the proposition that the members themselves should secede and go home was a good one, and ought to have been adopt ed. . fWe welcome back to the Editorial tripod, our young friend Astokew Hall. Esq., who has purchased the Jlushville lad..) Weekly Re publican. Axobew was formerly from this county, and has the talent requisite to make a good paper. We wish him much success. A Good Place fob Marrting. -A cer taiu popular hotel iu Marysvillu bos three chambermaids, within tho last few months, who have all married off. One after an other was obtained, and one after the oth er left, until the landlord swore that lie would Imve "nary another female about the bouse in tbnt capacity. All his chamber maids now are of tbe masculine gender. Trade with Taitors. The authorities and the people of the State of New York, are showing tbeir ap preciation of tbe crisis, by stopping the shipping of arms to seceding Slates. Sev eral seizures of tbe property of ;he seces sionists have already been made in New York City. Railroads have refused to trans port the implements of treason, and there are tbe livliest expressions of public appro bation of these proceedings. It strikes us that the New Yorkers are indulging them selves in a little superfluity of patriotism, wbtcb only serves to point the moral of the old joke about locking the stable after tbe tbief has emptied it. Stopping a few cases of muskets and pistols at New York, will not disarm or intimidate tbe traitors, or weaken " tbem in any respect. If they want to invest tbeir cotton money in fire arms, let them do it. Tbe people of tbe slave States are now tbe best armed people in tho world, and are more accustomed to handling deadly weapons (ban any other civilized individuals. Their equipments for war are extraordinarily complete. Tbe qnantitv of muskets, rifles, shot-guns, pis tols and bowie knives, io the hands of the Southern people, is prodigious; and the number of men in the slave States who habitually go about armed to the teeth, is greater than that of the army of France. Besides, tbey have recently taken posses sion of U. S. arms enough, in tbe arse nals of the cotton states, lo place a musket in the bands of every white man fit for military service in those Slates. Virginia has been "armed", as Gov. Wise ' calls it, ever since tbe John Brown raid. Her State House was all last summer guarded day and night by sentinels, in uniform, bearing rifled mukets will) percussion locks, the bayonets fixed, and the lock at half-cock showing tbe glitter of percussion cap. In the streets of Virginia cities at night, young men stalk about with cavalry swords, the steel scabbards clanging on tbe side walks, and in the country nearly every horseman on the highway is found strap ped to a ponderous Coil's revolver and l:ishing great sabre. These things are not indications of self-reliance and power, but of the contrary, Tbe people of tbe North having belter employment than carrying loads of weapons, prove their consciousness of security and strength by pursuing the even tenor of tbeir way, and looking with composure upon ihe clangor and pompons folly of tbe process of mailing to arms, in tbe States where there ' is a want of confi dence. ' Late News from Fort Sumter. Major Anderson has sent the wives and families of his soldiers to New York, as some of them are destitute and no money cau be got from the sub-treasury at Charles ton. About two thousand persons are en gaged in getting up batteries at various points around bumper. Ihe people are getting impatient and it is thought Gov. Pickens will be forced to allow them to make an attack upon Sumter. It is said that Maj. Audersou believes be will be at tacked soon. Lieut. Doubleday writes from Fort Sum ter that tbe secession leaders are more pa cific, but the mob are loud in their threats, particularly at him, as he is a Republican. He denies that the garrison gets supplies from Charleston, it having received only one box of candles from there and these were smuggled ; the vegetables they have bad were those previously laid in for tbe 'workman who bad left. Lieut. D. 6ays tbe country people who never saw a guu or a Fort, who have no education and no property are raving mad to mnkean attack, but the officers iu the Fort don't believe the Fort can be taken. He says tbe story as to a mutiny is false, and was started iu in Charleston to induce the government to surrender the Fort ; the men in the Fort behave admirably, and are "spoiling for a fight." Lieut. D. says no reliance can be placed on the Charleston papers as to the stale of things at the Fort, as the men are not allowed lo commuuicnte even with a boat that bears a flag of truce: the men miss tbeir tobacco: more than anything else. . The Rev, Mr. Harris, Chaplain to Fort Moultrie, lias been driven out of Charles ton. The Rev. Mr. H. was Chaplain at thu time of evacuation, and be was pres ent 'at Fort Sumter, and made the prayer when Major Anderson ran up the colors. The clergyman was allowed to visit the fort for a few days, but tonally was order ed to vacate bis quarters at Moultrie, and on removing to Charleston was ordered to leave by Gov. Pickens. He did so, and now is at Washington. Corn and Cash in England. Sis months ago, when the news of con litiued bnd weather .11 Europe reached us we predicted that the time was not distant when there mutt be an iiiiinen.se demand, especially in England, for American grain and flower..-: At Liverpool, and also in London, there have been bread riots,-which have affrighieued "the authorities," antl meat riots are expected, form the extreme scarcity and dearness ot butchers meat. Tbe result must be heavy orders lo ibis country for breadstuff's and provision, which will cause a yet further drain of gold into this country, and per:. tips further coutiu- gent difficulties in the money market of London. Consols, on tbe 1 2lh inst., five days af ter tbe Bank's rate of discount was ad vanced to 7 per cent-closed at 9llo9l. Exactly twelve months bel'oie, the price had been 95$. A difference of 4 per ceiil. is very great, indeed. We have looked back over our English files of 1860, and that the lowest rales of Consols, on the last day of December, (close on the crsis,) was 92; but thai, up to tbe commence ment of the drain of gold, the minimum price was 94. This is a great difference. Corn and Cash in England. The Union as it is--The Work Done and to be Done. STATES SECEDED. South Carolina, Dec. 20, 1860. Mississippi, Jan. 9, 1861.

Senator Douglas has prepared a substi tute for the Critteden propositions,' which , will, in a few days, be offered in the Senate. It will be perceived that in effect it recog nizes the distance of Slavery in the terri tories, under tbe Dred Scott decision, and under the operation of section four, no man in tbe free States would be exempt from liability to arrest under tbe peculiarly op pressive laws of tbe slave Stales: Seetion 1. Congress shall make tbe laws in respect to domestic servitude in any territory of the United States, and all tbe territorial governments shall be formed oh tbe model and in the terms of the organic acts approved September ninth eighteen hundred and fifty, called the Com promise Measures; and the validity of all territorial enactments shall be finally deter mined by tbe Supreme Court of the Uni ted States, on appeal writ of error from the territorial courts. But no new territo ry shall be organized until it shall contain tweuty thousand white inhabitants; nor shall any new Suite be admitted into tbe Union until it shall contain tbe requisite population for a representative in Congress according to the Federal ratio of represen tation. Sec. 2. Congress shall have no power to abolish or interfere with the relation oi persons held to service or labor iu any State under the laws thereof, nor in any place under tbe exclusive jurisdiction of Con gress, and situate within the limits of any State terrisory under whose laws persons are held toservico or labor; nor shall Con gress have power to abolish or impair the relation of persons held to service oi labor iu the District of Columbia, under the laws in foice therein, without the consent of Maryland and Virginia, so long as such re lation shall exist iu either of these States under the laws thereof; nor shall Congress have power to interfere with, or prevent the removal of persons held to service or labor from one estate or territory to anoth er. - Sec. 5. Tbe African slave trade shall tie forever suppressed, and it shall be the duty of Congress to make such laws as will ef fectually prevent the immigration or impor tation into the United Slates of persons held to service or labor for life, for a period of any person intended to be sold in any State or place within the United Stales, un nny pretence whatever.. See. 5. The second section or the fourth article of the Convention, ' shall be con strued to include all crimes committed within and against the State or place from which the fugitive fled,- whether the acts charged were criminal or not iu the place where the fugitive was found. Sec. 5. ' The elective franchise aad the right to hold office, wheiher Federal, State, Territorial or Municipal, shall not be exer cised by persons of the African race, in whole or in part. Sec. 6. The United States shall have power to acquire districts of country in Africa or South America, for l he colouiza tion at the expense of the Federal Treasu ry of such free negroes or mulattos as the several Stales may desire to have removed from within their limits, and from the Dis trict of Columbia, and such other places as may be under the jurisdiction of Congress. - Sec. 7. Whenever any person held lo service or labor, as provided . in the third clause of the second section of the fourth article of the Constitution, shall escape, and the Marshall or other officer whose du ty it may be to arrest such fugitive, shall be prevented from so doing bv violence or in timidation, or when after arrest such fugi tive, shnll be rescued by force, Congress shall have power, and it shall be its duty, to provide by law for the payment of the full value of such fugitive to the parly lo whom such service or labor may be due; and in all. cases where the United Sta'es shall pay for such fugitive, they shall have n right to sue the county in which such vi olence, intimidation, or rescue was commit ted, and to recover ibis atnouut paid by them with interests aad damages. The said county for its indemnity, may sue and recover from wrong-doers or rescuers the amount pnid lo the United States together with interests and damages. : Sec. 8. The first and second clauses of the first section of the 2d article of the Con stilutiou, shall read as follows: The Exec utive power shall be vested in a President of .the . United Stales of America, the President and Vice President shall ' bold t heii offices for the term of six years, and shall be ineligible to the office of President for the ensuing six years after having per formed the duties of President, and shnll be elected as follows: The Legislature of each Stale at its first session after any fed eral census, shall divide said Stale into as many Congressional Districts as it shall lie entitled to Kepresen'atives . lu Congress, which districts shall be in compact in form and nearly, equal iu population as practi cable; in each of said districts one elector of President and Vice. President shall be chosen by the people thereof, having the qualifications requisite for electors of Rep resentatives iu Congress; and in addition two electors for the Slate at large shall be chosen by the members of tbe Legislature assembled in joint convention for that pur pose on the day appointed by Congress." Mr. Riely won't Secede. RICHMOND, Va., Jan. 27. Intelligence has reached hero I hat pre vious lo the passage of the Georgia ordi nance of secession, Harrison W. Riely, a prominent citizen of the moiintuiu region of that State, proclaimed to another por tion of Georgia lhal he wns on bis way home and intended lo raise a party and take possession of the U. S. Government, in case Georgia, passed a secession ordi nance. , i . t ' His declaration caused considerable ex citement in Millidguville. . The Governor was requested to send a military force to Dnlilejjnega, but bad not done so at the date of I be advices. On lbs same authority as the above, we learn that there is a considerable Union element in tbe mountains of Georgia, and an anti-secession meeting was held iu Pick ens County, when they beard of the pass age of the secession ordinance. The old stars and stripes were run up and tbe dem onstrations of rusistence to secession were emphatic and unequivocal. The impres sion, however, was at Millidgeville, that th people of Georgia will generally sus tain the ordinnnce of secession, and co operate in the formation of a Southern Cotton Slates' Republio. War and Rumors of War. NEW YORK, Jan 28. A Constantinople letter of Dec. 31st in the World, records lite utter route of the main Persian army 6000 strong, by a large force of Tuikish, the greater part being killed and taken prisoners. This may per hnjs cause the overtbow of the Persian dynasty. Washington News. WASHINGTON, Jan 28. Union men are much encouraged by the promt response to tbe invitation for Com missioners to meet here on the 4th t eb ruary, and it believed that its action will command the support of a large majority of Congress. The Fugitive Slave law, introduced to day by Mr. Douglas, is considered a thorough and effective measure obviating the objections to the present statute. Slidell and Benjamin will formally va cate as soon as they receive official infor mation of tbe secession of Louisiana. . It is t not believed that a majority of secessionists will be elected in any Border State Convention. Tbe great point aimed at now, by Union men, is to avoid all pretext for collision by seceding States, in the hope that tbe sec ond sober thought of the people, if ad justment measures are presented, will in duce tbem to resume their places in the Union. The repeal of the Personal Lilterty bill, by Rhode Island, and the action of tbe Ohio Legislature, are bailed as harbingers of peace. Affairs wear a more hopeful aspect. Sec. Dix has instructed commanders of Revenue Cutlers, if attacked, to make tho best defense in iheir power, and if assailed by a superior force, to run iheir vessels ashore and blow them up. He has also written to the Collector at New Orleans to opply lo the- Governor of La. to revoke tbe seizure of the Government ' Hospital, and ordering 260 patients to be removed; Dix denouncing it as an act of outrages barbarity, disgraceful to any age orcountry The Mayor of Washington has been sum moned before the Select Committee to tes tify relative to the conspiracy lo seize the Capitol. He privately says he knows nothing about it. - Col. Hayne does not believe in the troth of the despatch from Charleston as to the reported business which occupied the attention of the Legislature in secret session yesterday. He has received no de spatch or communication from Gov. Pick ens on the subject.- The report is believed to be equally erroneous as that which recent ly represented that a boat from Fort Sum ter had been fir d iuto from one of the Charleston forts. Col. Hayne has made no demand on the Federal Government for tbe surrender ot Fort Sumter and is patiently awaiting the net ion of the Southern Congres9, at Mont gomery, which will assemble next week. The errand of the sloop-of-war Brook lyn isbeleived to be nf a peaceful chalac ler, with a view of intercepting hostile demonstrations on the part of the Gulf bquadron. Tne troops on hoard were destined to to the works at Tortugas, which are still in the possession of the federal authorities, but without adequate force to hold them. Capt. Barron wns sent by land a week since on a similar errand, and has probably arrived there by this time. His dispatches to Fort Pickens and the naval commanders in the Gulf were of the most pacific character. WASHINGTON Jan 14.1861. A letter of a recent date has been re ceived by a distinguished member - of the House of representatives, from an influen tial member of the Legislature of Ken lucky, in which the important fact appears that Hon. James Guthrie, Hon. Joshua F. Bell, Col. Harney of the Louisville Dem ocrat, Mr. Underwood, and other Union men; have resolved to resist the calling of any Convention unless it is postponed un til a late day say the first of August, 1861. There seems to belittle doubt but thai the Legislature will act Uxu their advice. A few days ago a resolution was introduced into the House lo raise the American flag over the Capitol, which carried by a vote of seventy to twenty three, when it was proposed to fire a sa lute of thirty-three guns in honor of the ceremony. Governor Magoffin refused to give them Ihe nse of the guns in the ar senal, upon which tbe Union men threat ened lo break it open. He finally yielded lo their demand, and the flag was raised and ihe guns fired. ! 1 The special committee of the House ap pointed to take into consideration the last and most important message from tbe President of the United States, are ready lo report, and will recommend the adop tion by Congress, of a bill giving Mr. Buchanan all the power necessary to en force the laws of the Federal Government, and to blockade the ports of the seceding Stales for that purpose. ' Ex-President Tyler had a long interview with the President to-day. Ihe latter ex pressed hi-, belief lhal there will be no Colli sion between the Federal and Stale forces duritigthe remainder of his Administration, and thai he should certainly make every effort to prevent it, and to preserve peace. Mr. Trier will probably remain ' here till I lie 4lh of Fehiuary, to meet the commis sioners from States other than Virgini-t, A large number of leading Republicans. from various parts of Ihe country, 4iave been here for several days. ' There is a great deal of consultation ntnong the friends of the incoming Administration, the re suits which may soon be developed. Mississippi Exchequer. The Committee on Ways and means in the Mississippi Coneninu, has submitted majority and tuiiiorily reports ot Hie inde pendent Slates. The minority projMwes the issue of treasury notes and bonds, Hi such such such sums tis from time to time are needed, not to exceed in the aggre gate $5,000,000, nor lo run for a longer time than five years. The minority re port projMises the establishment of a great State Bank, wall a capital ot $iu,uuu,uuu, to be loot ted at Jackson, the capilol of the Stale. The Stale lo lie a stockholder in the Bank lo the extent of $5,000,000; and for the subscriblion of a special lax is to be levied and collected of the people at the rale of $500,000 per annum for ten years. The Bank is not to issue more iban three dollars :o one of the capital stock; the issues to be regarded as legal lender; and after tbe 1st of March, 1862, the Legis lature may compel the redemption of tin notet in gold and silver. Such is a skeleton of the plans propo sed to raise means to suppoit the govern - meut of Mississippi, and to provide tne people wiih money. , Of course, if they propose to be entirely independent of all other States, and maintain all the func tions of government among themselves, those schemes are both good particularly the latter; for it will prevent the eternal woirv and fret about sustaining a siieceie standard, which less independent States liavn found so embarrassing, when, nl a time of excessive bank expansion, they have been compelled to sustain a foreign commerce on basis of gold and silver. Mr. Lincoln. SPRINGFIELD, Jan 27. Ilvis. now positively settled that Mr. Lincoln will depart for Washington on the 11 tb of Feb He will go hence to La layette to Indianapolis, where he will re ceive the hospitalities of the Iudiana Legislature.-. Thence be will proceed by way of Cincinnati to Columbns, Cleveland, Buf falo and Albany. From Albany be in tends to make for Harrisburg direct ; mence to Baltimore and the federal capital. But the tour to N. Y.and Philadelphia is not impossible. Arrangments for special trains all the way through are making. No military escort will be accepted. The entire jour ney is expected to be made inside of ten days. Illinois Declines. SPRINGFIELD, III., Jan 27. Telegraph advices have been received by Governor Yates, from the Governors of New York, Pennsylva nia, and oilier North ern States, suggesting tho propriety of joining in a convention, to be held at Wash ington, in February, lo devise proper rem edies for the adjustment of the present difficulties. The appointment of five com missioners from each Slate is recommend ed. Gov. Yates has finally declined to join the movement. COLUMBUS, Jan 22d. 1861. Dr. Stout's Antl-Amalgamation : bill was passed bv the house this morning, the Democrats aud a few delicate members of the Republican partythe '-emasculated" kind, as Mr. "Sucks calls them, voting for this exquisite measure. Dr. Stout was very much delighted thereat as if lie bad some mysterious personal interest in it. It is interesting to observe the ineradicable nutrpatliy ot Democrats for the Alrican. Not content with ihe absolute introduction of ihe nigger to their distinguished consid eration, they seize every Jnissihle o..rtu uity to stir him up. The' Conceive it the chief end of Democrats to keep nothing be fore the Legi.-litlure, and nothing will in duce them to let him alone. . In California il "is a common remark that "a "nigger hates a Chinaman, a Digger hales a China man anil Nigger, and a Dog bates a Dig ger." But the mutual hatred of Nigger, Dog, mid Digger in the diggings is mild Cotupnrud with Democratic animosity in Ohio for unhappy Snmbo. In the diggiu's the approach of a Digger agonized every dog in the camp. The very scent of him operated upon the pcor dogs as the sonn ! of a conk jars iheir nerves, and a Digger's coming is bewailed Willi a ineluiioliolly- howl of distress, followed by a unanimous snapping at his heels. The pnrallel is quite obvious. I lie very idea ot a excites the most Intent nervous sensibilities of De mocracy, and the scent of nigger arouses all the deejiesl feelings of Democratic na ture. Let a Republican but fniuil nlhulo to him and a Democrat howls with rage. Bui if Republicans omit it they howl wii li mit any provocation. One would suppose however thai the amalgamation of white folks and blacks is as a mailer of taste en tirely independent of statuary law. President Lincoln's Route. A gentlemen came to the city yesterdny for the purpose of arrangeing for a spec u I train to convey President Lincoln on bis way to Washington. Tbe route, as ar ranged by this gentlemen, is by ihe way of Indianapolis, Columbus, Piltsburg, Cleveland, Buffalo, Albany, and thence lo to New York and Philadelphia. The par ty will consist of thirteen persons, will leave somewhere between the 6th and 11 th of February, and lake about ten days to reach Washington. Cleveland Herald. Who Feeds You! A correspondent of the Nashville Dem ocrat puis this question to the Cotton State secessionists. He says that there are daily passing over the Louisiille & Nashville, and Nashville fz Chattanooga Railroads twenty car loads of breaditutfs and meats, bought in the Northern markets, and on their way to the Slates of Georgia and Alabama. The writer says he lias taken tho number of car loads per day, and feels safe in his estimates, as follows: "We have nine car loads of corn, seven of flour,, and four of bacon. Each car contains seventy five barrels of flour, two hundred and eighty bushels of corn, six teen thousand pounds of bacon; that is, one hundred and forty-seven loaves of bread a day, besides two thousand five hundred and twenty bushels of meal, and sixty four thousand pounds of bacon, to go with the breailstuffs." He makes the fol lowing application of the fcl: 'These figures show us that the people are very destitute f provisions, and they will mk l he traitors suffer for the ruin that they are trying to bring upon tli.-in. Look, pray you, lo this self-constituted aim coer cion committee that you have among you! They wi.h to briiig you lo ruin ! -. You will not follow them! "Georgians stand by the Union! Stand by your bread! Alabamians, do likewise! North. Alabama, attend to I hem1 We are for the Union, and can pledge you that our people will stand to you. Conservatism in the South. There is no little satisfaction to be de rived from the fact that occasionally man ly and marked evidences of an attachment lo the Union, ana ot a determination to sustain it at all hazards, are still manifest ed at the South, notwithstanding the ul Irnism of a large body of her people, and of those who assume to act as their accept ed leaders. Ihe bold speeches of such men as Andrew Johnson, oheiraid Clem ens, and Emerson Elhe.idge, show how keenly they renlizit the follv and wicked ness ol disunion, aud we are r-jokyd to find uow and then proofs of the exisleUce of a simllnr spirit among those they re pnsent. A recent number of the Knox ville (Teiin.) Whig, edited by the renown- ed Parson Brown low, not only contains a series of more oilier denunciations of the Secession niovemeul than we have observ ed elsewheie, but a very argumentative letter from O. P. Temple, Esq., an mnueii lial lawyer of that town, which discusses ihe agitating questions that now distract th ronnirv in a very able manner, ami clearly shows that while no sufficient cnuse for disunion exists """'d -"l'l terrible evils upon the people of llje Soulh. At the same lime he makes a very elo quent and touching appeal to tbe citizens of the Nor lb, lo evince a gentle and con ciliatory spirit lo their Southern brethren. There seems reason to hope that if the border Slates can be pacified, and the Union men of the Soulh properly strength ened, the Federal Government may yet be preserved, and the whole country restored to tranquility nod ils wonted stale of pros perity. ho Conservatism in the South.
