The Capital the State of Ohio.
It may be of interest to the distinguished
visitors, the Executive officers and members of
the General Assemblies of the sister States of
Kentucky, Tennessee and Indiana, now pros
eouting a visit to the Capital of Ohio, to know
that the first session of the Legislature was
held in the borough of Columbus In Deoember,
1818, and that the site, lour years preceding,
was a forest, known and described, as the
"High Bank of the Scioto River," opposite
irrankiinton. Tbe city, its Capitol, Benevolent
Institutions, the vast Improvements, have
been made in the last forty-three yeara.
Tne town of ifrankiinton, whlcn tne pas
senger cars whirl through, was a pott where
the army rendetvouied in 1812, passing to
Urbane, Fort Meigs and other points north.
The town of Columbus was laid oat on the
18th of June, 1812, the same day, we believe,
that war was declared against ureat Britain.
The City House or Tavern was opened by
David o. urodenok in lla. in mat year tne
population of the town was 700. About this
time a weekly paper waa published in tbe
place by Ezra Griswold, now of Delaware, and
Colonel Philo U. Olmsted and Joel Buttles, of
Columbus. GuBtavut Swan, we believe, is the
oldest surviving lawyer.
Jn 1814 the first Methodist Church was or
ganized, and the same year they erected a
small hewed log-house, with a shingle roof.
Of tbe teachera in this pioneer school-bouse of
Franklin County, were Joseph Whitehill, after
ward Treaaurer of Stare, Rodolphua Dickinson,
for a number of years a member of the Board
of Public Works, Joseph Old, in Congreta, and
Samuel Bigger, afterward, we believe, Gov
ernor of Indiana. "
The first aucoesaful attempt to carry a mail
to or from Columbus, otherwise than on horse
back, was by Philip Zinn, about the year 1810,
onoe a week, between Chillioothe and Colum
bus. The proprietors of the town, built the
State-house and government oUices, which
oost tht State but a small sum of money. The
proprietors extended $50,000 therefor, under
a contract, and the State paid tbe remalner of
the bin. wnion amounted to only xss.uuu,
For this they got twenty acrea of land, all the
publio buildings, including the first peniten
It was not until 1821 that the town was
made the oounty seat. The present Court'
house was built in 1810. The Inttlligmcer and
Gazette, in 1825, was enlarged, and entitled
(Jam state Journal and Columbiu UatetU.
Soon afterward the Wettem Statesman, com
menced in 1825, was merged in the Journal.
As the Sentinel, Eeqieter, Journal and Begitter,
and Bullttin, the paper has been published,
until It ia known now as the CAto elate Journal,
The Wettern EemUphere Commenced in 1832,
and was finally merged into the Ohio Statu-
man. A number of other newspapers rose and
sunt every tew yeara.
Tbe legislation for the erection of this
edinee was commenced in isaa. Tne corner
stone was laid July 4, 1839; but on account of
some supposed indignity to the .Legislature,
by the people of Columbus, the law to erect
the Btats-house was repealed say next year.
It was not until 1146 that it was finally de
termined to constitute permanently Columbus
as the seat or government.
The magnificent structure, as it will now ap
pear to visitors, has been but two years eccu
pled by the State officers.
Visitor! will be profited by visiting the
home of this olasa of unfortunates, so provi
dentially oared for by the Stat. The build-
Ines were erected in 1833-'34. The inatitu
tion went into operation in November, 1829,
being the first of the humane enterpriaes of
tne Htate.
This benevolent enterprise commenced ope
ration on the 1th of July, 1137, with but five
scholars, under tne care or Mr. A. w. renal
man. The edifice, now the nuoleus of subse
quent improvements, was erected in luiv.
Since thia edifice waa erected, the inoreased
number of patients in the State baa required
the establishment of branohea at Cleveland,
Dayton and Cinoinnati. This magnificent
structure, in the superiority of its structural
architecture and extent, is only equaled by
tne important services its managers and pa'
Irons confer upon suffering humanity.
Thia State prison will be a point of interest
to the visitors. Large and convenient, and
well managed as it is, its fullest capacity is
over taxed by tbe number or its inmates, viz.
The High School and Common School
Buildings, the Starling Medical College,
chnrohes, and other publio edifices, as also
the well designed private residences about
Columbus, are wormy or tne attention oi visitors.
Tbs Soikhcs op Sxlv-Eatiso. At a late
meeting of the Frenoh Academy of Medicine,
a very singular paper was read on Autopn
agy. Spontaneous and ArtiOolal. M. Ansel
mier. the author of the paper, bates his theory
on the fact that the body, when deprived of
its ordinary nutriment, consumes itself, until,
as its substance wastes away, ita temperature
falls and death ensues. He has proved by
experiments that the most economical method
for thia aelf-oonsumption is to keep up the
ordinary process of nutrition by slight bleed
ing and diinking tbe blood. Of two animals
in a similar condition, one of which he starved
and the other fed npon its own blood alone, the
latter lived several days longer than the
Poverty ir Niw York. The Secretary of the
State of New York, In his returns for the year
1858, states that the whole number of paupers
relieved that year amounted to 261,165, and
that there wete 63,948 inmates of the poor-
house. This result snows tne extraordinary
fact that, of the whole population of the State
of Mew lork in isoo, tnere was one in every
tlxtv-four an inmate of an alms-house, and
one In every thirteen and a half to needy as
to require alms at tne hands or the uovern
ment. -

Rowley against his wife, Is reported at length
in the London papers. Mrs. Rowley, it hd-
pears, has very handsome legs, and, being
fond of showing tbem, enraged ber husband
upon several occasions while traveling on the
Continent. He told her "to tie her breeches

was brutal, and oorreoted her by oorporeal

Lawea and Gilbert, the Engliah agricultural
chemists, have, after long experiments, estab

matter Is much greater in fat animals than in
lean; that while in a lean ox the proportion of

often less than half. This shows the great
economy of purchasing fat meat, although, of

Tbs Niw York Hrrald at thi South. The
Southern Confederacy, published at Atlanta,
Georgia, in a recent issue, contains a strong
editorial denouncing the New York Herald

tion trash than any other journal; and, by
virtue of its large circulation, gives it a prom
inence and importance that it would not other
wise possess."

The Herald' $ correspondent says: Callander.
Cashier of the Hartford Bank, testified to-day,
before the Senate Brown Raid Committee, that
Brown deposited with him, and that he never
paid money lor Brown's cheek to any one bnt
Brown, except in one ease to Col. Forbes, to
whom he gave $600 on Brown's check. This
is a contradiction of Forbes' statement in his
letter, in which he stated that be never re
ceived money from Brown. Callender also
tesuned that wnen Missonrians invaded Kan
sas, he and other Connecticut men advised
him to go there, and he gave him a Sharpe's
riue, ana tola mm to use it. canenaei was
informed that the Committee did not oare
about Buoh testimony.
Mr. Charles Blair, of Colllervtlle, Conn.,
testified that he made Brown's pikes, and that
Brown paid him for them himself, and he
knew no other parties concerned with Brown
in the matter.
Mr. Blair is a Democrat, and made the con
tracts aa be would with any other person, not
knowing for what purpose the weapon would
be employed, Had a ballot been taken to-day
the result would have been about the same as
formerly, no obange having taken place suffi
cient to produce a result on either side. For
several days a report has been circulated that
some of the South Amerioana will vote for Mr.
Corwln and thus foroe the Republicans to go
to him.
Anothsr rumor is that Messrs. Briggs, Rlggt,
Adrain, and Clark, will vote for Mr. Penning
ton, and thus diotate terms to the Republicans.
Neither of these projects will divert enough of
the inenda ot Mr. Bherman away from him to
eleot either Corwin or Pennington.
Since' Mr. Corwin's speech to-day, it ia
doubted whether the Americana will pursue
the oourse Indicated.
