Western Kesonrce*--Letter fromW. B*
Ogden.
e n ?B letter, which we puMifh this
morning on the second page, wi}l be read
with uQu>:ual interest, us well on account of
the subject discussed and the ability with
which it is treated, iu from the well-deserved
reputation of tho writer for <>lour, com
prcbcoHve view? and great ?-agae!'r.
Tho lel'er was written Rome time ago, us Hi
date will show, but failed reaching us until
quite recently; but the time that has inter
veiled detracts nothiug from its interest, but
on the contrary leuds au additional attraction
to it. since it hA? brought about the fulfilment
of some of tbe writer's predictions, and given
us the beginning of 1 hut geueral recovery from
prostratiuu which the letter so clearly de
monstrate.-. to be inevitable.
Agricultural'Mntistics.
The legislature ol Wi-cuasiu has made It the
duty of township Ai-seisors to ascertain from
the farmers, whcc listing property lor taxa

their culture.
This is the third "Western Stale which has
made this provisiou for procuring those im

One Little Fatting*
The limes says that we have not yet attacked
the intrinsic merits of the Tom Dyer Chart
er, but bave contented ourselves with raiding
small objections agbinet it.
This reminds us of the old lady's preacher.
She was wont to remark that be wks a most ex
cellent man, and had only out little failing,
which was, that " he would s*csr whenever be
got drunk 3"
Tbe Tom Dyer Charter bas only one litte fail*
ing, viz.: It is a swindling, snti Democratic
usurpation, devised to override the well-known
will of tbe people, and to enable a tax eating
minority to get into power, to rule and plunder
the tax-paying majority. But like tbe drunken
ness and profanity of the old wom&u's parson,
tbcae are only blight objection* in tbe eyes of
the Timtt.
France aud Austria*. Cause of the De
cline iu the Funds.
The usual levee was held at the Tuileries on
New Year's day. The diplomatic corp-e and all
the great functionaries were in attendance, and
during the prcentatious an epcut occurred nhich
occasioned quite a panic ou the Paris Bourse, and
a heavy tall in the funds at London audtlscwhero.
The Paris correspondent of tbe Loudoci Tt'ma,
writing on the evening of the Ist iu.-taut, says:
" 1 have just heard tnat du ing the IcVte
the Erapriur told the Au-tiuii .Minister, ih'AiOer,
ttiat lie reK'ctte l their relaiiuu* were su bjd.but
that his jiersonal sentiments for the Kinperor of
Austria were as ever. 1 may aud, that :i
rumor circulates (but lor ttie truth oi which 1 do
uot vouch) thut ilatslial Vaillaut, Minister of U'ar,
went up hUlisequently to Habner, and *ii<l to liini
'lsuppiisu I uiuat not givu you my hand alter
that.'"
The same correspondent, writing oa the follow
ing day,say?;
•• The few words addressed by the Kmi'ernr to
H. Ilubm-r, the Austrian Minister, during ttie re
ception »t \es\erdav, and which 1 communicated
in a postscript, are, I ll»d, literally correct. Thty
weu? s|»okcu with u more t-mphiiiic tone of voice
and animated gesture tiiau the II np»-rt»r generally
employs, and retaiuded s-jaie of the listencis of a
scene betweoo the Fitst and the
AmUanf-ador cf tliat day, pr.-vious to the rupture
or ttie treaty of Amicus. They aie conruriiied
upon in variot;« ways in all circles where politics
are the topic, and 1 learn that in tue higher finan
cial regions where they are kiio*n, they have pro
duced an effect which it is difficult to exaggerate.
4, 1 will nui indulge io speculations as to what
they portend. It is well knowo that tbe Em
peror keeps tbe greatest guard over himself and
never allows an unguarded expression to re
veal bis real thoughts ; but it is certain that on
this occasion he betrayed an excitement which
could not pass unnoticed by tbe diplomatic
corps. IflheHourse were open to day, I bare
no doubt that the etfsct would be heverely felt.
1 think it right to add a lew words of explana
tion on so nnusuc.l an occurrence. For two
or three months negotiations hove been going
on between Austria and France on tbe Eubj?ct
of Italy. The Kniptror expresses himself very
anxious that retorms should be introduced there,
and particularly in tbe Roman .States. Tbe
Austrian government has been urged to use its
influence with the i'ope and the King of Naples
for that purpose, and the Emperor Napoleon
has, 1 am aseurrd, agreed to tbe withdrawal of
tbe French troops from H?me, on condition that
tbe Ausirtans should also evacuate tbe places
they bold. On both these points tbe greatest
opposition is met from Austria; though it is a
fact beyond dispute that tbe Italians are more
discontented than ever with their rulers, more
inflamed than ever witb hatred against Austria,
which no merit of her representative or ber gen
erals will ever mitigate; and as ready us erer
to rise against those they look upon as their ty
rants.
44 Whatever be tbe real motives of the Empe
ror Napoleon—whether he finds that tbe contin
ued occupation of Kame exposes him to odium
on the purt cf tbe Itulians. or from whatever
otber views—be is fully aware of this exaspera
ted feeling, and of the consequences which may
follow, and whicb, perb&ps, he would wish to
prevent. In tbe midsi of all this conies the Ser
vian complication, and the probability of an
Austrian occupation there also. Thi«, it ap
pears, the Emperor Napoleon most decidedly
gets his face against lie will listen to no occu
pation, except a joint one, of Servia, and under
tbe authority ot the powers who signed tho
Treaty of Paris. We imre every day new ac
counted tbetfr>jrTe#cenc« ibat prevails in Italy,
and tbe sympathy which Sardinia shows to the
discontented, as well as ot what is passing in
Servia. Ail this has reduced its eflect on the
Emperor's mind; and thus, notwithstanding bis
habitual reserve, be cuuld not out show it yes
terday, when the representative of Austria stood
before him. This, 1 think, you wiU tind pretty
nearly the true state ot tbe case. Tbe feeling
against Austria is very bitter, and I cannot say
it is understood. W&etber it will go to the
leoicth which ail eeem to apprehend, I cannot
•ay."
"On Monday, the 31, there was quite a panic oa

W«-tM by tbe proceedings of Congress that
Mr. Douglas delivered e eulogy in the Senate,
od the 16ib, on tbe lion. Tnomas L. Harris, de
ceased, of ibis State.
Thi* is very kind, very considerate in Mr.
Douglas; hot the people hereaway would have
a far better opinion of his sincerity, had he ex
hibited a little more heart and sympathy before
Mr. Harris' decease. When poor Harris l»y
upon bis deatb-bed, and onlv a few days before
be breathed his l»*t, Mr. Douglas wis in this
city, and remained here aeveral days; yet aU
though only a tew miles and a few hours dis
tant, Mr. Douglas kept entirely aloof from his
expiring comrade. How natural, bow touching
it wonld h«ve b en; Low indicative of true and
manly feeling, for Mr. Douglas to have forgot
ten politics lor one day, and to have taken a
kind iarewell of the man who hastened his own
death to elevate Mr. Douglas! How,such An
interview would have gladdened poor Harris*
last hour*! Hat no; Mr. Douglas bad otber
business than that of to a
dying friend, to attend to. Those who witnessed
his cruel apathy io this matter, severely com
mented on it, and it was remarked at tbe time
that 44 Mr. Douglas bad no need of dead men."
Mr. Douglas now goes into the Senate Cham
ber, and tatks in solemn tnockerv ot his affec
tion for the deceased. He conld better have
■town it by visiting him on his dying bed.
Such cruel aelfishne— as Mr. Dong lis here

THE NICOL.SON PAVEMENT,
IMPORTANT TESTIMONY IN ITS BEHALF! i
f
We hare du»cusatd the coat of tilling, curbing
end paring oar streets io a former article, and
published tbe comparative expense of paving
with Joliet cobbles, limestone blocks ua tiicol*
son wooden blocks, ehowing that the difference
in tlie cost of paring materials was very little.
We also pointed out the insuperable objections
to the employment of the Joliet cobbles. All
tbat is saved in tirst cost is more than lost in
the first year's .weir, '.as compared ;witb the
Jticolson pavement, and that to 3 without taking
into consideration tbe very annoying noise made
by cobbled street*, the serious damage done to
horses, the jostling and smashing of vehicles,
and the rapid accumulation cf dirt apon such
pavement.
The experiments made with the N'icolson pave
ment in this city nta pravtd it to be better adsp
ted to our streets and toil thao ouy other paving
material yet tried. Thiais the third season's wear
on the piece of pavemeat laid between Wells
street brides aod Lake street, and where it
ther'e any other pigment that has stood travel
and frost as well for tbe seme length of time ?
Notwithstanding it was laid with soft wood, the
injury it has sustained is scarcely perceptible at'
this time. It'looVs «*• »r it vnnld Ufiteii jcoxo
moro and conticao in good repair.
Xicoleon pavement bas been in use in Boston
for nearly ttn years, and has proved its excel
lenc: a&d durability to a most satisfactory de
cree. It has been aubjected to tbe Severest
tests in that city on narrow, heavily travelled
streets. The three and four-horse drats with
their narrow tires and enormous loads, tear the
best &f pavements into ruts in a very short time,
and it is to this sort ot test it has been subjected
ia the " modern Athena."
That onr citizens mar understand the estima
tion in which the Xicoleon pavement is held in
Bo&ton, we poblieh tbe following editorial end
official recommendations:
tFrora tbe Boston Da Ij AdvtrUser, May 10.1 £'.&,}
" We cannot forbear exprewing the opinion,
founded on on examination of the Nicolson
pavement, from the date of its tirst introduction,
and a comparison of its state from time to time
with other pavements laid contemporaneously
with it, that it possesses tbe property of dura
bility, in a state perfectly adapted to its object
beyond any other that has been tried in this
city, unless it be the most approved and most
expensive of the patent iron pavements; and it
may perhaps be doubted if even this will bear
hard service as loeg as the Nicolsun without oc
casional readjustment, if proper care is ttiken to
make choice of a kind of timber that might be
expected to be durob'e. The method of tsbeping
and laying the wooden blocks composing the
wooden pavement, appears to be successfully
adapted to securicg their permanency, and this,
we think, has been fairly proved by the tests to
which the pavement has already been sul-jected
in our streets. >*o person can deny that it pos
sesses in tbe most eminent degree the qualities
attributed to it by our corresponded, viz:
smoothness, quiet, ireeden from dust and from
jar; and these are qualities Of tbe highest im
portance. It is always felt as a great relief in
driving to come upon a piece of this pavement
in the streets where it is laid ; and the
upon these streets have constant cause
tate themselves upon tbe advantages whicHbey
enjoy, in being favored with a pavement in front
of their houses and stores, which always and
permanently deadens tbe noise of paj>sfng ve
hicles, as much as the "tan" or straw some
times Lid in the streets ia cases oi illness, A
pavement which possesses theso durable quali
ties ; which proves to inexpensive to keep in re
pair ; and ot which the tirst cost is so moderate;
ought not to be neglected by those who have
tha care of our streets.
STATEUKXT OF TUB MATOE AXO ALDE&H&X OP
nosro.v.
liosroy. Feb. 2!, 1837.
The undersigned, Mayor and Aldermen of tbe
city of Boston tor tbe current year, have here
tofore had occasion to notice tbe construction of
the "Xicolaon Pavement," now in use in vari
ous Dotiions of tbe city, and are moat favorablo
impressed by its various good qualities. In re
sistance of frost gives it peculiar value; lor it
renders the work of repairing gas pipes, water
pipes, etc., in winter, quite as eaj»y as in the
summer ; there being no hard frozen soil to dig
through at great delay and expense. We con
sider it a highly useful invention; safe, econ
omical, and durable; while its sanitary proper
ties prove its adaptation to the streets of South
ern cities.
The mecbunical arrangement of the blocks is
such as to eeenre freedom from noise, and risk
of slipping bf facirses; surface drainage is also
perfectly effected,—the wooden blocks being
quickly dried alter exposure, by the use of the
bituminous composition, or mastic, the durabil
ity of tbe wood is preserved, the musses be
coming hardened by impregnation, so that the
exhalations from rot are not present. Tbe va
pors whica might exhale undrr the raTB ot the
bun, are those which neutralize miasmata, if ex
isting in the air. The gravel so perfectly unites
with the maotip, that a kind ot rock is produced,
specially adapted for roads over porous or im
perfectly drained soils.
It hm been severely tested on the bridge
leading from the city proper to South Boston,
over wtiich passes tbe heaviest description of
travel. It has atao been successfully tried in
some of the most crowded streets of the city.
the great o'-jecta of pavement,
cleanliueta, aatety, durability, economy, ready
removal for repairs ol underground works, im
pervinusnrss to frost and moisture, and sanita
ry properties, they recommend it us a pavement
of valuable and tried qualities.

The undersigned, resioeots ot Soutb Boston,
or its vicinity, having occasion to pofcs over the
bridge leading to Sea street almost duify, have
noticed, with great ba'.isfaction, tbe beautv, se
curity and durability of the "Xicolson pave
ment," which is luid down on tbe southerly
portion of the bridge.
Considering the incessant travel over this
thronged avenue—much of which is by tbe
heaviest team.", carti&g iron to and from South
Boston—and that a large proportion of the
Quincy grauite, in load* of many tons each,
passes over this bridge; considering, also,
that during tbe eighteen months this pavement
has been laid dowu no perceptible wear of its
surface, or displacement from frost or otherwise,
appears; that it affords an admirable footing
for horses; exhibits great evenness of surface,
and promises durability without requiring fre
quent and expensive repairs; and, understand
ing that its original cost is moderate, we are of
opinion that ita general introduction is highly
important and derirable.

Boston, December 6ih. 1557.
Samccl Nicholson, Sir .■—Hav
ing examined t>pt*cimeu*of your patent wood and
pitch pavement, ou the causeway of tbe Boston
Mill Dam, and on South B*?ton Bridge, as al*o tbe
i other imiJtovemt-uU you liiiv«> made iu this kiud
of pavement in Mason and Exchauge streets, and
! having made due inquiry of person-* residing on
I the street* and Itridgt-s above mentioned, as to tlie
[ actual wear of the new roads paved by you, and
I the intlueuce of heat, cold, and water upon the
paid nuils so paved, I am prepared to state, that
| your method has been proved to be a valuable im-
I provement, of great importance to the
I ty. It U obvious that your pavement is, while
i firm enough to support the heaviost carnages and
I loaded wagons, ibe most nuisekss and clcanlv,
giviug but little if any dust, aud forming no slip
pery mud.
It is t-o tight »9 to prevent the entrance of
water, and therefore i.-i uol liable to l>e heaved by
against which your mastic or cement also
bets, beiagan imper'ect conductor of heat.
In reply to Tour qoestion, as to the tffect of
this kind of pavement in southern and western
cities of tbe United Ststfis, in preventing the
emanation of miasmatic vapors from the soil, 1
would state my confident belief, that by shutting
off the water trom tie surface of tbe street, and
br preventing exhalations caused by the action
of tbe sun's beat on wet soils, or earth an d veg
etable matters, that your pavement will act as a
highly sanitary means, wherever it is exten
sively employed in paving the streets of west
ern and southwestern cities. It will evidently
protect the cities so far as it can be made to
cover op tbe ground, from which miasmatic
vapors arise.

The fc-t. Nicholas Hotel Compact*
IFrcmtlie s \ V. Evenm* Port, l*th.]
We are authorized to state that the report of
a difficulty touching tbe requirements of tbe
agreement entered into by the four trunk lines
between tbe Erie and Peonsylvarja Central is
without foundation in fact, nor h«a their been
any deviation on the part of either company
from the compact. We suppose that a call from
Mr. Moran of a special meeting of the parties to
that agreement was prompted oy tbe additional
ireight which the soothers roads are enabled to
secure, by reason of tbe continued favorable con
dition ol tbe Ohio river. At tbe regular month
lr meeting of the four companies, to be held at
Baltimore on tbe -6 ;h inau, this will no dcubt
be a prominent matter of consideration. I'ro
bib'y propositions will be made by the J*»ew
York roads to alter tbe water rate, with a view
of reducing the difference between water and
rail carriage. The southern roads will of course
meet the matter with the fact that during the
summer, when tbe Ohio is low, they are sub*
jected to a like disadvantage.

tbe several aliases of Levi, EUas, Abraham, &e,

capacious pockets on the inside for the storage

CHICAGO, SATURDAY. MORNING, JANUARY 22, 1859.
The O'Beien-Febiuce Case.—We have receiv
ed a couple of letters based on our late reference
to the course and issue of the case of O'Brien vs.
Ferrick In the Court of Common Pleas, involving
a title to a cow valued at's4o. ifr. O'Cricnlin
fortns us that he docs not and never did live in
Kilgnhbin, and that hit 'cow was "a nine year
old," instead of sis as stated. We add the three
yeare with pleasure.
Mr. O'Brien more than hints at the possible in
vestigation of some of that "shearing of a most
unmistakable character" at the nest session of the
Grand Jury of the Recorder's Court, from which
circumstance we infer that he disagrees with
twelve "obstinate men" in relation to the question
of property. Seriously, our article contained no
intended reflection oa either of the parties to
the case.
The other communication touches '• a long row
of bricks," and involves a'question that the pub
lic, wheu they have a little leisure from politics,
may peihaps attend to, but which long before
that time will have teen considered upon and de
cided by right-minded and Intelligent men. The
case of Mr. cow might do the world
some service if it could awaken in every mind the
reasoning and results attained by our correspon
dent, who takes the " upwards of $100" costs for
a text to a discourse upon the propriety of levy
ing heavy taxes for county aud city purposes, and
ILo nftlitlamanoe of oar «vurU, *Ju>. while the
county offices coin fortunes annually for ihcir
incumbents.
" County bills unpaid, or cut down to the lowest
figure, nhile a few fortun.ite f>ues are addiog,
each, to the honors of their offices emoluments
disproportionate to all reason, justice and pro
priety—this i-> the clue to*c«fa' und f ecs, like these
in the O'Brien case."
Tbe writer proceeds as follows:
"While on this subject, let me oek how far
the record fees of tbe county of Cook would go
towards paying tbe annual county expenses, and
whether there might not be an advantage to the
public, even in (evening these fees one-balf, and
further increasing the revenues ot the county by
the fees of tbe County Clerk, atlixing a liberal
Stated salary to these as well as all the otber
offices from Judgeships downward. When tbe
Supervisors at ttieir next session paert half a day
in discussing tbe payment of a bill of f 18, will
tbey fill out tbe good day's work by footing up
such an approximation of figures as m&y show
bow much tbe county could save by. tbe adop
tion of j-alariesinstead of "fees," and howmuch
advantage the public wonld gain from the les
sening of the coats and fees at present exist
ing."
We are astonished at the elasticity and duc
tility of tbe tale of Mr. O'Brien's cow, but tbe
deductions are worth noticing. Some of these
days the question must be decided, and in the
only right way for the people and tbe public.
Ia the meantime that cow "still Uvea," possibly
to do still further public service.
Bcfiixrss Education—Tusoar a.kd Pbacticb
CouiiLNKo.—lt is often urged and quite frequent
ly with too much truth agalost iastruction by
systems in departments cf business, that tbe
students are only *' book learned," and about as
well fitted for realities as was tbe swimmer who
learned to swim ou a table. It is not strictly
true, but it is true, that storing up ever so com
plete a system of rulet in the student's mind
will not make him a business expert.
Messrs. Bryant, Uelli Stratton, proprietors
of the chain of Commercial Colleges in six
leading Northern cities, have recently intro
duced a combination of theory wito practice,
which putß the oar into the student's hand, even
with the book before him, and well instilled
ruU* of business lifa are developed and muscu
larized by the very cemblance of rigid
nesa routine.
la Banking, for instance, ia the Commercial
College in Larmon Block, a bank counter, with
its various stands and desks, bas been lilted up,
io right baoktng-oflice style, and at this desk, in ;
the various post 4 of Cashier, Tellor, Book-keep
er, &s.,the class is thoroughly drilled. With
this bank, the business of the student is transac
ted, and tho whole interior and relative life of
banking and mercantile business explained. To j
borrow a figare from the medical schools,
Messrs. Bell & Stratton, the resident Principals,
have introduced disaecUou and the anatomy of
business in all its branches. No eubjtct is slight
ed, and everything is tbuß from working models
explained and drilled into the mind and the ex*
perience of the student. The pluu will univers
ally and at once commend itself aa an excellent
ooe.
Euitss CtxTEnxiAL Anniversary. -The ad
mirers of the genius and poetry of Robert
Burns, the "Ayrshire Poet," in 6nd around
Chicago, are all on the qui vice with regard to
the approaching celebration, to come off on
Tuesday next. It promises to be the most mag
nificent afl'iir ever gotten up in the West. In
tbe forenoon a grand procession takes place,
composed of the St. Andrews' Society, High
land Guards, and other military companies, Ma
sonic Lodges, the Mayor and Common Council,
and private citizens. In the evening an ora
tion will be delivered by ex Gov. McComas, to
be followed by a concert, in which Burns' beau
tifal songs will be sung by excellent artists, and
on which occasion the Highland Guards will
sing that universally favorite ballad, " Auld
Lang Syne," as well as his highly amusing
poem as "Tam O'Shanter" (to be recited by a
genuine "son of the heather.") After this,
comes the Banquet and B*U at the Tremont
House, where beauty and mirth will predomi
nate. Large deputations from tbe cities and
towns along the lines of railway centering here,
are coming to join with the citizens of Chicago
in the affair. "
A Wo an wira tub Skxto.v.— It has beeome
quite tbe custom in city cturches to induce a
kina of religious dimnefts of the light during
the sermon time at evening service, by partially
shutting off the gas. This is all very well, if
the thing be not carried too far, and it certain
ly is so when tbe light remaining is so insuffi
cient that the expression of countenances, both
of the speaker and bis audience is lost in dim
ness. Then the only advantage gained is to
those who hear with closed eyes, and are of the
opinion, from a thorough perusal of the Bible,
that there ia many a good thing got "in a
dreatn." Will the sextons leave tbe people
light enough to see each other face to face, and
clearly, otherwise the pulpit orators are rare
who will not, on snch occasions, look down on
sleepy congregations. ;
Tub Law Isstitcts Libeabt.—To the credit I
of the County for liberality, and to tbe praise of
those who gave direction to the same, tbe Li
brary room of tbe Law Institute, io tbe third
story of tbe Court House, must be pronounced
oneoftbemoßt elegant and, altogether, suita
ble apartments for tbe purpose we have ever
seen. The Institute will, in its inflaenco upon
the bar of our city and county, abundantly ren«
der the investment a good one. Whatever
tends to elevate the standard of the legal pro*
feesion, is of direct and readily appreciable pub
tie advantage. Tne room has been handsomely
fitted up and carpeted, and tbe present pros
pects for furnishing the shelves are the most
favorable and promising.
