The Artillery is made op of good material, and we predict for the company a permanent organisation, and a brilliant career. Trial Drumming. On next Saturday even- log Nevana, of Cleveland, aad Thoa.

Jenny sighed, snd Robin sqtieeced her : Pretty little trembling hand, And then with outstretched srajs he aeir.ed her llalf-reluclant form, and and "Loone me I" but he clasped the lighter "Jenny, ssr, wilt thou be miner ' And her bright face, grew still brighter, As she answered "I sin thine." And then Ihey hugged each other fondly llose together s two bricks; And then they kiaaed earn other soundly And-1 left them in that hi I Tnx Gave Law. The following bill passed th Sensl on Thursday last. We giv it, title and all: To amend ths second section of "An art to prevent the killing of Birds snd other Game," pssaed April 10, 1857. Hec. 1. Be it enacted by the General Assem bly of the State of Ohio. That the second seo- tioo of the above recited set be amended to read as follows; It shell be unlawful for any person st soy time between the first dsy of January and the first day of July, to catch, kill or de- stroy, or to pursue with inc. intent, any wild turkey, quail or Virginia partridge, ruffed grouse or pheasant, pinnated grouse, or prairie chicken, any wild goo.e, wild duck, teal, or other wild duck, or toy wild deer; or at any lime Deiore the Orel dsy of July, to catch, kill or destroy any woodcock, or to have in his pos session, sny of the birds or game mentioned in this set durinc th aesson when th killins?. injuring, or pursuing th ssme ie hereby pro- UI1MICU . Sec. S. The original section second of the act above recited is hereby repealed. We must tske some exceptions to the "ape cialities" of the above. A "prairie chicken' is never seen in this Stale, except in a cage as a curiosity, or upon the tables of our epicure; their mention, then, In an act for the protection of game in Ohio, is not only unnecesssry but ridiculous. In Western States where they are found, they do not come lu season as also do not quail and pheasant until about the 10th of August. Another orjjeciicisble feature of tho "amend ment i that which does away with spring ducking, so delightful to sportsmen. All water fowl leave our waters early iu the winter and return again early in the spring. They do not psir off until about the 1st of May, so that the law as it at present stands, fully protect them during the incubating and mulplying period. To crown the absurdity of the above "amend roent," it places all kind", of gsme in and out of season at the same time; it makes no dis crimination whatever between the varieties! The author, Mr. Parish, has convicted himself of inexcnssble ignoisnce of the game of Ohio; he has been unable to distinguish between "flesh snd fowl;" he knows nothing whatever of their habits; and what makes the matter worse, he hss involved the gentlemen who supported his amendment In the same ludicrous and humiliating positionl They make ssd havoo of natur when they would bring fowl into season make game of 'em, egadl when they are but barely out of the ahelll Turkies, quaila, pheasants, ducks, etc, are aotall fledged when Mr. Pariah would have them prepared for the table! And thia i th work of our four mtken! When the atnendmentis brought before the Bouss, we hope some gentleman will kick it into decent ahape, and not let the work of the Senate go out for th derision of sensible men everywhere. WASHINGTON, D. C., Feb. 2. 1860. Dxaa Davx: You are doubtless aware that our distinguished fellow citizen, Dr. Jefferson A. W., snd your humble servant, are sojourning io thi seething, boiling, overflowing metropo, lis, and apecial haven, of all ahadea, colors snd castes of opinionated politicians. : In my opinion, no greater subject, was ever apread on canvass, than th ever-varying scene of life in Washington. Here you behold the cold, cslculaling, blue nosed He! perl le, in eontrast ith the blackeyed, dark-baired, rudely faced Southern fireseater.. Here, too, aland the broad shouldered, fulKbreaated Representatives of the Great West, their manly bosoms yet heaving, and roling with the patriotism in stilled by the breeaea that aweep over the broad prairie of their own distant homeal The Doctor seems to enjoy himself hugely, and is a special favorite with all elasseaof Democrats; but th Helperltes regard him with suspicion; they are doubtless afraid thst some monstrous "aneik" ia about to be precipitated in their midst, and the eoosternation depicted on their countenances is plainly visible. But the Doctor is a human man, and haa assured me that he haa no intention of doing anything of the kind. Be thinks, (and I agree with him,) that their punisbmsnt is already more than they can bear, io the defeat of Sherman, the Belperite. We were by special invitation permitted to attend a Democratic caucus a few evenings ago, and after the transaction of the buaines before thst body we were introduced to nearly all the members present. The utmost hilarity and good fellowship seemed to prevail, wbioh I re gard aa a harbinger of the success of our psrty in the coming contest for President of the Uoi. ted States., There wa ooe event, in the pro gramme of onr introduction that ought not to be over-looked. ' After we were specially introduced to nearly all, a Southern gentleman, our escort, rose and with a msjestio wave of hishsod.msd the hap pieal little speech I ever hsd the good fortuoe to listen to, gsve us a general introductiea to all present, which waa replied to by the Doctor in a speech of abont fifteen minutes' lenglb, which frequently brought down the house, sod msnifested itself in borate of spplausel I in tend to make it th subject of a future letter If I esn mske it out from a few imperfect notes taken at the time. Your, Geological Lectures, Illustrated. Dr. Boynton, whose reputation aa a popular lecturer on Geology ia nnequaled, will deliver th first of a course of lecture oa that subject, this evening. By a popular lecturer we sim ply mean ooe who esn interest all clssaes, th learned and the unlearned on the subject, the young as well aa the old. No one need fear being bored by "hard" names, scientific term, or a meaninglesa nomenclature. Those who heard him a few yeara ago, will never forget the im presions which he made. Bis pleasant voioe, earnest manner, chaste) atyle, bis wonderful ar ray of facta so clearly presented, all combine to render him las eeieatifie leoturet of the day. Be ia one of those priests, who, having inter. prated th wonderful inscription written by the finger of God on th Book of Natur ha com to deliver th oracle to us.
