The Twenty.Second of February.
We ore not among those who deem this a
fit day.for national jubilation. The_Fourlh
or July is well and firmly established. Toit
let the energies of pnbllo patriotism and
clamor be still directed. It is the duy of our
Independence, and when it ceassg to be re
spected we shall have ceaeed to be worthy of
what it gave us. Let it continue to be the
nation's holiday, which each man, woman
and child may celebrate according to
their several likings. Bat the birthday
of Warmxgton is fitter for the fireside than
for the street. Occasionally, when some be
neficent public end, like the present, is to be
nerved, we may properly pat on purple and
fine linen, and make the day of onr great ex
emplar illustrious with processions and festi
vities; but the>nniversary of Washington,
around wbose name clusters all of ourhistoiy
which con be called sublime, is surely the
proper time lor mute reflection on the prin
ciples and achievements which crown the
American name.
We have said it is aroand this name—this
martial yet serene and peaceful form—that
our whole hiEtory of exalted greatness clus
ters. We have not been wanting In great men
and heroic deeds, yet the passage in our an
nals which tells of Valley Forge, Yorktown
and Mount Vernon—greatness of mind, fixed
ness of purpose, patience, devotion, triumph,
lowliness and Christianity—takes station be
side the brightest and grandest of the world 7 *
honorable pages. England points us to her
Cromwell—the foremcst man of all the world
in an invincible will—whose massive charac
ter seemed equal to hewing away the nioau
tains. France gives us Napoleon, a splendid
comet in the firmament of splendid name?.
Other ages and races stand upon the triumphs
of Hannibal, Cssar, Gustavos, Columbus, and
a hundred others whose fame grows fresher
with every age. But we rest on the calm ma
jesty of Washington, and challenge the pui-t
and present alike, for another who hosjachic-v
--cd mightier results with little means, wrought
greater blessings for his kindred and posterity,
preserved himself pirer from spot or blem
ish, and passed away from the scene of his
with equal glory, eimplicity and meekness.
We shall do well to remember these things
to-chiy. They are the prints which Washing
ton bae left npon the shores of time—not one,
but aIL Singly they may mark a despot, or
distinguish a clown. In combination they
make Washington the hero among heroes,
and shall endear him to millions after we
have ceased to do honor to bis name.
A Talk with Chicago Tax-payers*
In Ohio and Eastern States, property is as
sessed at its cash value fur taxation. hen
we hear of the people of Cincinnati, New
York and Boston paying five-eighths or twelve
mtlla for municipal purpose**, it means that
each man is assessed that per cent on the
actual cash value of all his property—real
and personal, moneys and credits. In this city
property is only valued at a small fraction of
what the owners would sell it for. The catli
value of real and personal properly is more
than three times the assessment. Hence, when
we talk about a taxation of twelve mills on
the dollar we really mean butfour mills on the
cash value of each man's property.
The aggregate value of the properly of
Chicago is put down on the tax books at only
thirty tiz millions of dollars. If it were as
sessed by the Ohio, New York, or Massachu
setts rule the aggregate would exceed ow
hundred and twenty millions, or more thau throe
times the assessment put npon it
The reason for this under-valuation is to
Bave the city fr«m having to pay more than
ber due share of Slate taxation. Properly
in the various counties is assessed far
its actual worth. Farms worth forty dollars
per acre are put .down by the Aasoshorn ut
sen, aod housta wortn $2,000 are at
SSOO. If property in Chicago were assessed
at its full value, our people would be obliged
to pay quadruple their due proportion of
State taxce. Many of our citizens who have
come from Eastern Slates, may not have been
aware of theso facts.
The municipal taxes levied for 1858 wero
eleven mills (and inside of the lamp district
IS milb:), which on a cath valuation would
J>e equivalent to three and two-third mill?,
and including the lamp dietricU, will average
four mills. This is a lower rate of taxation
than is levied in any considerable cily in the
United States. We assert, without lear of
contradiction, that no other municipal gov
ernment in the United State*, containing
100,000 inhabitants and upward-, is main
tained on a four mills tax. We want those
who are grumbling about their taxc3 being
bigb, to bear in mind the fact just stated.
If the floating debt of Chicago was paid
off, and the government could get an unin
cumbered sLort, ten mills on the present
basis, or three on a cash valuation, wo aid
suffice to carry on the city government, and
replace the worn-out bridges, maintain a paid
steam fire department, bnild a capacious
fgbool house each year, keep up the reform
(school, pay the iaterest on the sewerage
bonds and funded debt, and create a linking
fund to liquidate the funded indebtedness,
and keep all city property ia good condition.
If there are any persons who expect that all
this can be done on lers than the rate of taxa
tion we have named, they belong to the class
of chronic grnmblera who never know when
they arc well served. We have gone care
fully over the expenditures of this adminis
tration and find that, after deducting what it
has had to pay to complete old contracts and
liquidate old debts, including interest there
on—its own proper expenses for all purpose?,
have not, with its rents, fines, and license?,
exceeded the proceeds of a ten mills tax—
which is only three mills on the fair cai-h
value of the property of our citizens, or one
third of one per cent thereon. What reason
able, fair-minded man can find fault with this
rate of taxation in a young and growing ci<y
like Chicago ! Surely he will not better him
self by voting to restore a party which de
voured the proceeds of fourteen mills of tax
ation, and ran the city behind more than a
quarter of a million of dollars in a single
year. Put back the tax-eatere into the Court
nonse and farewell to all ideas of retrench
ment, economy, and low taxatior. It is a
tsafe mle to let well enough alone.
Home News front Abroad*
The old adage—"go away from home to bear
the sews,—is verified by a recent number of
the New York Tines. That paper, in speaking
of tbe repudiation meeting held at Pittsburgh
on tbe 16tb inst., adds: "Such movements are
indeed qaite common in Illinois, lowa and Wis
consin." . This is news to the people of Illinois
and of lows certainly. We live in one of those
States and are in daily communication with the
other, and, with the exception of a proposition
from the authorities of Keokuk to tbe creditors
of that city to tarn over each assets as tbey
bold in part liquidation of the city debt, we cer
tainly know of so movement in either State
which squints even remotely at repudiation. Bat
it is the common practice of the New York city
the pspera to deal out wholesale BlenderclQgainet
West in this way. We know not whether to at
tribute it to ignorance or knavery.
In the recent message of Gov. Weller, of Cali

be for the joint benefit of the United States and

The treaty made two years ago with the Si

Another Tie w of the fflormon Jnrisprn*
[Correspondence of the Philadelphia Press.]
WisniNGTOK, Teb. 17,1859.
It is said that the Mormon war bas already
cost the Government mere than (10,000,000;
and if an army of two or three thousand men is
to be kept there for an indefinite period of time,
a similar drain npon the national resources will
be continued. The American people are emi
nently practical in their views, and some of these
days will begin to inquire whether it is desira
ble to incur so much trouble and expense to at
tain results of comparatively small importance.
The great difficulty in Utah appears to tie be
tween the judges and the people. So far as re
cent adrices inform us, peace reigns there. Gov
ernor Camming possesses the confidence of the
people, and to a great er-tcnt commands their
obedience and respect. In the courts, District
Attorney Wilson seems to move along as success
fully as the generality of district attorneys.
From the very nature of the legd system of
Utah, bb of all other American communities, the
juries are made up of men chosen from the body
ot tbe people, and represent, inevitably, to some
extent, the pußsions, feelings, Qcd prejudices of
those among whom i heir lot in life is c&st. When
Judge Sinolair, in the discharge of his oilicial
duties, chose to plsse upon tbe pardon of Mr. Bu»
chanan an interpretation difiering from the sense
in which it was ordinarily accepted, snd from
I.he meaning which the peace comTiisßiooers and
Govei'sor (Jumming placed upon it, ana !*bcn
be evinced 3 disposition to press prosecutions
acainst a large number of tbe prominent citizens
of the Territory, even against the better judg
ment of the district attorney, it is not very sin
gular that a people, banded together as tbe Mor
mons are, should not only feel disposed to resist
his dicta, but, in their resistance, to go beyond
tbe bounds of legal propriety. That they are
not wholly disposed to ignore the action of the
courts iB shewn by the fact, that when Fergcson
was indicted for atleged indignities upon Judge
Stiles, the grand fury, composed of a majority
of Mormonß, found a true bill, but alter a trial of
three weeks' duration, during*rhich be display
ed considerable ingenuity in his defence, wh'ch
he (being a lawyer) conducted in person, he man
aged to secure an acquittal. In the subsequent
case of a man indicted for tbe murder of a deal
mnte, tbe Mormons allege that there were ex
tenuating circumstances; and their version is
that the killed while in custody for
a criminal offence, at a time when the officer in
charge of him was compelled, in self-defence, to
destroy him. It ia, no donbt, vain to pretend
that, according to the strict rales of law, under
the circumstances, as we understand them, that
a Mormon grand jury was justifiable in ignoring
a bill of indictment in this case; but the point
which 1 wish to present to your readers is this:
that juries, everywhere throughout the country,
are notoriously influenced in their deliberations
by the sentiments and peculiar ideas of tbe com
munities in which they live; and seriouß as that
evil is—subrersive as it is of the true ends of
justice—does it impose apotf tbe National Gov
ernment tbe duty ofcorrecting it by havingmsr
tial law declared in Utah—by having men tried
by dram-head courts—by givingjudgesabsolute
power of life or death, and unlimited control of
property, or by squandering away $10,000,000
in vain attempts to establish Mormon jurispru
dence on a basis which exactly squares with tbe
ideas of clear-headed lawyers. It the National
Government is to undertake to compel juries and
grand juries to act in all important cases as tbe
judges think they shonld act, it mil have its
hands full, and it can cquander .away hundreds
of millions annually, and after it bas done so,
discover that inhoituly more harm than good
has been accomplished.
The Democracy in a Snarl.
[Fpsrial Dispatch to the New York Tribune.)
Wassinotom. Feb. if, 11*9.
The President's senility was practiced npon
with great success by a new operator to-day.
The latter, envious of his colleague's (Mr.
Slidell) success in procuring the President's
endorsement of his wild Caba thirty-million
bribery and corruption scheme, brought out
from tbe .Executive macsion to-day an appeal to
Congress to hurry through tbe passage of his
(Benjamin's) bill giving the President power to
make war npon Mexico, the Central American
and South American States at his discretion.
Mr. Seward aod Mr. Fessenden, on the Re
publican side, exposed and denounced the mea*
sure aa unconstitutional. Mr. Slide)} and Mr.
Brnjamin finding thai the two Presidential mea
sures embarrasaed each other, and were like to
prove mutually destructive, like the Kilkenny
cats, contended each for precedence of his
scheme over that of the other. Mr. Benjamin,
in his anxiety to rescue the President, came
upon the keen lance of Mr. Fessenden, and was
flayed. Mr. Douglas went the whole animal for
compliance with the President's recommenda
tion, which, however, he insisted must be ex
tended, so as to enable tbe President to make
wsr upon all Stats?, both grsat and sm&ll, at all
times and upder all circumstances. Jefferson
Davis went over to the side of Seward and Fes
senden against Buchanan and Douglas to the
rescue of the Constitution.
Mr. Seidell appealed tor unanimona consent
to keep a resolution alive which be had offered
yesterday for proposing night seasions next
week to secure the pcis&ga of the Cuba bill.
Mr. Mason objected and refused th» concent.
Mr. Slidell appealed to Mr. Mason to listen ts
reason. Mr. M&aon refused to listen to any
thing, snd called Mr. Siidell to order.

The news by the steamer Prince Albert adds
| farther coniasion to the previous reports from
the continent of Europe, in relation to tbe diffi
culties between France snd Austria, Piedmont,
(Sardinia) Lombardy and the Italian States
generally. The English, French, Belgian, Ital
ian and Austrian journals are devoted almost
( exclusively to this topic, and correspondents at
every court are quarrying for items which may
bear on the absorbing question. We make tbe
following resunw from a summary of the intelli
gence in the N. Y. Timts ;
| The Paris journals continue to discuss proba
bilities with a decided tendency to peace. Tbe
| Constilutionnel denounces the wicked men who
spread false rumors, the Belgian journals which
reproduce the latter, tbe pamphleteers who en
large npon them, and finally, the insipid public
in which they find believerm. The JPatris accepts
in a favorable manner the two notes published
i in the MoniUur In reference to Prince Napo
leon's marriage, and says: *' It may now be as
serted that nothing will be changed in the tra
ditional policy of Prance, and that in the impe
rial dynasty there will only be an illustrious al
liance the more." The Prrne congratulates the
Debats on its article on the war prospects, al
r ludes to the improved tone of the Hied*, and
praisea tbe declaration that war woald not be
shrank from, were war necessary for the vindi
cation of the booor of France.
The English journals keep up the discussion
with a spirit snd at a length commensnrate with
the importsnce of the interests at issue. The
i Herald says it is believed in monetary circles
that hostilities in Earope may still be everted.
The Morning Pent boldly accuses the Govern
ment of betraying the interests and endanger
-1 ing the peace of the eountry. by pledging sup
port to Austria, breaking off the French alli
ance, and even menacing France with tbe hos
tility of England. The daily Iftws discusses
tbe strategic aspecti of the possible struggle—
pointing oat tbe strength of tbe Austrian lines
of defence, and argairg that, it even tbe French
army advancsd from Home, the Austrian army
might at the same time cross the Ticino and
crush the Piedmontese army, and be ready to
receive the French from the soo r > on the banks
of the Po, a river which even the great Napo
leon never once succeeded in crossing in face of
tbe enemy. The city ariicle of the Times re
fers to a rumor which, though it may have no
1 immediate bearing on tbe Italian question, caa
not be otherwise than significant. Itis that the
Government have completed a contract with
t three large iron companies for a sapply of 66-
i pounders as fast as they can be cast. An impor
tant contract for gunpowder has also been
t taken.
I Telegraphic accounts from the Continent do not
1 add much to previors advices, or serve in any ma
i teiial degree to clear up tbe uncertaioties of the
i portion. The Times 1 Paris coirespondent says
that in that capital u atters are corns to tbat pass
i that it is difficult to say anything certain one way
or the other. We still, however, near of tbe move-
I ment of troop*, and aaother war indication may
I be read in tae statement of the Op'mione, of Turin,
i that tbe Grand Duke of Tadcany has refused to ac
i cede to Austria's request regarJing an exchange
of Tuscan for Austrian troops; and tbe corres
pondent of the Daily Aetc* states that the war
i like preparations are going on so actively that the
f breaking ont of hostilities would seem not a ques*
, tion of weeks, but of days.
The Independence Beige alludes to the proposed
arbitration of England un the basis of the inde
pendence of Lombardy and Venice from Austrian
; vice-royalty, and says:
t " The statesmen of England have been induced
to adopt this coarse by the knowledge that the
i intentions of the Emperor are very decided, and
tbat tbey will be followed by deeds. They
I know that Fiance hes been concentrating troops
, in Algeria, which only await orders to embark,
before proceeding to reinforce the garrison in
. Borne; tbat force could very easily be concentra
. ted in the south beyond the Alps and Toulon; that
\ the Government is not gianting any moie leave
I of absence; that continuous leaves not being re
newed ; and tbat the Minister of War has been
buyiog horses, and bps jrst issued a significant
, order lor the purchase of 1,200 mules, to be col
lected in three months."
The Paris correspondent of the London Herald,
writing on the lvgut of the 27tb, says the op'uion
is now almost uoivenil in Paris that a ens's has
r arrived in tbe afiairs of "Europe more momentous
thau any which Ip? arisen sirce the wars o: the
first Empire. A small party, however, Ljlooging
chiefly to the monied nterest, still fondly clin? to
the hope that war may be averted, and tbat the
warning voice of Lord Derby's Cabinet will suc
ceed in three Poweu now prepar
ing for the fight, to abandon tleir dangerou-t
coarse. Among the lower classes the war feeling,
stimulated by La Prtsse ai d the Steele, is grow
ing daily more' inter r e. This feeling is further
promoted by tho pre mt uncertain;/ wfrich de
presses trade, and coLsequently the labor market. ;
The Paris correspordent of tbe London Times,
in a dispatch dated the night of the 27th, says: i
Contradictory facts and contradictory rumors are
still the order of the day. There are reports that
it is on the political attitude of England that war
is in reality dependent. There is also a report
that M. de PeDigcy is lively to go to England
ouce more as His "reappointment
would be regarded as a sign of peace* So gieat Is :
tbe uncertainty as to the future, that ministers
themselves probably do not know what will come
out of tbe present crisis.
According to the Paris correspondents of the
Times and Herald, the prefect of waiding off hos
tilities by convoking a Congress 5s considered ne
gatory. The Vienna coirespondent of (he Timts
is positive that Austria would never consent'to
♦lie Italian ques tig n settled by an E jropean
Iu the Tienna rorresponde&ce of the Times it is
reported that Aastria and Russia appear to on
better te. jis, and it is related that a letter from
the Emperor Alexander to tho Emperor Francis
Joseph hrs been rccei/ed, which the latter con
sidered extremely satisfactory. The pretension
of the Enrperor Kapoleoa to play tlio part of
European arbitutor L ?gici, it is supposed, to tie
regarded at St. Petersburg as somewhat dangerous.
In opposition to tbe notion that the French gov
crument ?s anx'oos to £ettle the point at i.-jaic by
diplomacy, we have tUe fact that Austria hps not,
up to this time, shown the slightest disposition to
submit to arbitiation.. Every mail from Vienna
brings intelligence that tbe Austrian government
lully expect that war w?'l, eooner or later, ari: e
on the Italian question, and that it isprcpailng
for the worst; and the Paris correspondtut of the
Herald says tuat among the lower orders in that
capital,the notion of a Congress is heartily laughed
' Tbe marriage of the Pnnce Napoleon with the
Princess ClotilJa was to take place on Sunday,
January 30.
It bas lately been repeatedly assort?d, says the
Turin correspondent of the T? Ms, that the Papal
Government (that ia to say, Cardinal Antoteili)
w'sbes to get lid of a'l foreign from
the llomau States. At regrrdsd tl'e French
troops, this iny bave been **ue enough; but the
Cardinal would sorely noi th'uk it rrfe to
dispense * ith b'* Ar<t*lan protec* >rs while the
present system .ii lorc3. But, if this were
ehanged in the manier rid to the extent I have
bketcued in this let* ir, it is my 12"er, and that of
many persons who hive e*ioyed fc ut*r opportu
nities than I have of judging of tlie u jl'ngs and
desires of tbeßmin people, that tbe Anstrians
might very soon withduw to Perrara, and the
French to Uaisell'es, without the risk or t'je al
most certainty there at present woald be of an iur
surrection in the Roman States ei soon as their
backs were turned.
As to the nrobable direction of the campaign,
should hostilities occur, the London correspondent
of tbe Manchester Guardian writes;
"I find, from conversation with intelligent Eng
lish travelers just retorted from Italy, as «ell as
with Piedmontese and Lombards resident here,
that tbey all agree in considering war as still im
minent on tbe Ticino, notwithstanding all dip'c

lowa Railroads-—Who is to fcaro the
Connection by a llridge across the
Mississippi ? •
L IGorrejpcndence of the ErenlccPott.)
Cbjcaoo, Ftbru*T7 9. 125'.
As event of considerable interest in railroad
matters bas recently taken place ia the com*
mencement of the bridge from Clinton, lowa, to
the Illinois side of the Mississippi, la order to
understand its importance*.it will be necessary
, to go back a few yean in the history of railroads
in lowa.
1 The Chicago, lowa and Nebraska Railroad la
* to rnn from Clioton, lowa, to Cedar Rapids, and
thence to some point on the Missouri River. The
' company is composed principally of Eastern
capitalists, who are men of wealth ahd determi
* nation, as will readily appear from what fol
t lows:
t Without any aid from the State or Federal
Government, they hare bnilt their road and pat
* it in ranning order from Clinton to within _six
& teen miles of Cedar Rapids, and graded it to
. that place, to which the cars will ran sometime
in next May. The severe pressure, which has
been felt more, perhaps, in lowa than in any
other State, seems to have had no effect npon
i their operations, for the work has gone steadily
j on from the beginning to the present time. Now
the stockholders in the railroad are deeply io
-1 terested in lands along the line, and especially
about Cliaton, the terminas; and while it was
* indispensable to them to make a connection
with some eastern road, it was equally necessary
! for their private anccess that the connection
should be mode at Clinton, and nowhere else.
To the consummation of this desirable object,
two obstacles, either of which were apparently
* insuperable, have been opposed. The Galena
Railroad, a wealthy and conservative corpora
' tion, which for many years has been a dictator
wherever its interests were concerned,
[ and the lowa Central Railroad, whose charter
* is owned or controlled by the Galena
Railroad Company, and which is sap
ported by a magnificent land grant, have worked
ufeetber. shoulder to shoulder, for the past two
| .rears, with an unwavering determination t j make
[ L>ons, which is two miles abcve Clinton, the con
| uecting point of the railroads of Central lowa.
1 The Galena company have procurod a charter for
a bridge at Lyons, and have determined, over and
' over again, that it shall be built there and nowhere
* eke. On the strength of this promise, the well
' kuowi power and obstinacy of the Galena corn
* pany, a portion ot the road from Ljons west bas
' been graded, (6ut no rails laid) and many fine
1 bnildings and blocks have gone no in Lyons. The
* plan of this part was to wait and* force the Cliu
* ton road to run up the river to Lyons, and they
1 succeeded so far as once to get them to agree that
' the Galena road might go over the river at Lyons,
1 and ran down to Clinton, which woald have made
> Lyons the terminus, the bridge being at that
» place. Bat having achieved thu, the Galena road
* wanted more, and let go tbelr hold to get another
' farther up, and lost what they had pot—for. the
- Clinton road returned to their original intention,
> and renewed their pledge that the road soould now
- run ap to Lyons; but that if the bridge was bu-.lt
> there, they would run live miles down the river to
t Camanche, cross there, and connect with the Al
' bany and Mendota road.
It was the determination of the Clinton compa
i ny, and the design of their connecting with the
Albany and Mendota road, which runs due east,
t and is being bailt by the New York Central and
. the Pennsylvania Central railroads, that caused
i the Galeta company 10 halt in their determine
j tion; while on the other hand, it was the great
> advantage of a connection with the Galena road
- oyer any other, that indeed the lowa and Ne
. braska road to listen to overtures from tue Ga
' lena company, notwithstanding the opposition
, they hive experienced at tb-ir han-Js In this way,
* ana partly from the faet that the rails were laid,
! and the cars runnina for about tizty-four tniUt on
* the Chicago, lowa & Nebraska Railroad, whereas
* not a rail had been laid on the lowa Central—a
! sort of trace has been effected. The bridge at
> Clinton is being bailt, and the Galena company
have only to lay three and a half miles of road
i to meet the lowa and Nebraska cars on the is
land in the middle of the river. It they do this,
i and agree upon a fair divisioa of rates, the busi
ness of the lowa road will be given to them; if
I they refuse, the Chicago, lowa and Nebraska
Railroad will connect with the Albany and Men
dota Railroad which is in progress, and thus cat
off the Galena road and Chicago altogether.
1 It is to be hoped that all parties will be ens
> bled to see their obvious interest, though as the
personal credit of some of the most powerful
members of the Galena company is pledged to
■ecora the bridge at Lyons, a greatstrugglemay
be expected at the meeting of the stockholders
in Jane.
Thus the Chicago, lowa and Nebraska Railroad :
is changed from suppliant t" dictator. It has '
sixty-four miles of road running, a bridge in
progress, and is importuned by the Albany and
Mendota road for the connection. It is claimed
for this road through central lowa, that it will
drain the State and draw traffic from the north*
era and soathern lines, as it is much nearer to
Cbioago; and it is further claimed that it will
be the shortest route to the best ports of the
State ol Minnesota, where a road is already in
progress to the State line, to meet it.
Thus larther interesting circumstances in this
contest for the northwestern trallic are at any
time likely to occur. W.
Arrest and Escape of a California
f From the Mendota Press.]
On the 12th inst., U. S. Deputy Marshal Ander
son, of California, arrived here in pursuit of a
man namen 0. F. Linn, whe is accused of em
bezzling tho sum of $17,000, under circum
stances not yet revealed, and whose where
abouts was ascertained to be in Lee Center, in
Lee Coanty. As Anderson was personally
known to the party asca-ed, Joha Wanless and
Joseph lawyer, of Mendota, were engaged to
make the arrest. They went to Lse Center, un
der a requisition of the Governor of California
to the Governor of Illinois, found Linn and
made bis arrest, which created quite an excite
ment in the little ton a of Lee Center. A large
number of returned Catifornidns assembled and
threatened vengeance npon Wanless and Saw

by signs of shooters, that Linn should not be

Linn plaoed in his bands—3o oar information
goes—than he wes allowed to bundle dp his

nothing more to do, and as no further action
was taken, they returned to Uendota not a little
chagrined at the result of their mission. An

A Member of the Legislature goes to a
Party Pnuctually.
The Colnmbus correspondent of the Cincin
nati Gazette is responsible for the following well
told story:
Punctuality iB not one of the weaknesses of
the Ohio Legislature, bat there is one gentle
man here—a leading member —tyho makes a
good many speeches, aod is a oandidate for
ongrets in nis District, who exhibited this
quality the other evening in a remarkable de
gree. He was invited to an evening party—a
grand affair—for which a thousand tickets bad
been sent out.
Mr. D is a man of a good deal of
world wisdom, and knew that in a great crowd,
it was "first come first served,' 1 so be deter
mined sot to lose his share of "good things'' by
tardineas ( and presented himself at the door ot
the mansion punctually at six o'clock.
In his haste to get in, be overlooked the bell
and gave a farious knock. This, pf coarse, was
not beard in the kitchen, bat the gentleman of
the house, who happened to be id the parlor,
went to the door to learn what it meant, when
the smiling legislator, with a low bow, handed
in his card of invitation.
An explanation ensued, of course, and he
was invited to retarn three or four hours later.
It is fortunate for the old Solon that he did
not pall the bell, for if the servants had got
wind of it, the story would have soon been all
over town, but now it's a profound secret,
known only to a few friends of the family; and
it is to be hoped, for the sake of the Legisla
ture, that nobody will be inponaiderate enough
to make it public.

We present this invention with the tallest knowledge of

nearly two years been subjected to the severest tests, it
hu, by tts oVn lntrinslo merits, actually surmounted
every objection that could possibly be brought against it,
as the accompanying certificates, which are but a fair av

We have no hesitation In sav'ng that the Sietalils-Tlpped
Shoe is destined to entirely supercede, for Children and
Youth, the ol'! style; aod we consider it a moderate
statement that one pair cf the Metallic Tips will outwear
two to three pair* of the old style, tnakloc a utlqs of
nearly two-thirds In the expense of shoes.'
