Notwithstanding the pouring rain this morn ing, great numbers of people wended their way down Broadway at an early hour, to at tend the ticket auction for the first concert of Jenny Lind. 1 be charge of one shilling for admittance to the Garden, a mistake afterwards explained, produced some curious ebullitions; and in ad dition to the rain, which came down in torrents sufficient to damp everybody's ardor at the nour of commenceing the performances, no doubt deterred a number who wonld have en tered into the spirit of the scene with ardor. At least 3,000 persons, however, were pres ent, filling the whole body of the Garden, and leving a goodly number to occupy the balcony. Ihe auctioneer, Mr. Leeds, appeared punc tually at the time appointed, but his audience were compelled to wait in uneasy expectancy for the arrival of the diagrams of the house. These, however, having been delayed at the printer's, did not make their appearance, and the bidding was commenced without them. A good deal of confusion was necessarily at tendant upon the sales in consequence of this delay. Mr. Leeds now mounted his platform, and made an off hand statement of the rules and regulations of the day. Ali the tickets sold must be called for be fore 12 o'clock on Monday. All that are not applied for at the time specified will be dis psed of to the first persomapplying. The choice of tickets was sold, with the priv ilege of purchasing 1 to 10. No privilege higher than 10 was given. Now commenced the exciting struggln for the first choice. The first bid was $20. From this starting point the calls grew louder and more energet ic : 'Twrnty-five' 'thirty' 'thirty-five 'for ty i'sixty 'seventy-five' 'eighty,' ('Give me the hundred,' cries Mr. Leeds.) 'Ninety' 'one hundred,' (Auctioneer 'I've got it!') One hundred and five, ('a very low price! Mr. Leeds.) 'One hundred and ten,' 'twenty-five' 'thirty' 'forty. 'one hundred and htty 'one bund red and seventy-hve riwo hundred' (Loud cheers,) 'Two Hundred and twenty-five,' ($225); here there was at last a stop, and curious glances were shot around to discover the fortunate candidate. 'Genin' Hatter!' . So the honor of the first purchase is fairly won by Mr. John N, Genin, the well known hatter of No. 214 Broadway. The competi tion for this chase was very spirited, and there were many candidates for the honor. The announcement of the success of Mr. Genin, was received with a tremendous outburst of applause. The bidding then proceeded. The second choice of seats brought $25; the third $15. At the latter price the box seats over the stae were disposed of single to the New York Hoti'I. ihe Irving House was the pur chaser of a large number of seats at prices varying from $8 to $15. Messrs. Win. Hall & Son, Music Dealers, were also purchasers to a large amount. Several single chairs near the stage were sold at $8 :50 each. The first row of chairs was then sold ; the Astor House took twenty for $140; Irving House twenty-four for $192. The next seats offered were in the front row of the gallery; they ranged from $9 50 to $5 each. The front bench seats below, in the rear of the chairs, were then sold, bringing $7, $6 50 and $5 each. The second bench row brought about the same prices. When we came away the second row of the gallery was just finished ranging from $7 50 to $5. We have a complete list of the number of tickets sold, with the prices of each, and by whom purchased, which we shall publish on Monday.. N. Y. Tribune. "The Doctor."

Fulton's First Steam Voyage. BT B. W. HASK1N3. Some twenty years since, more or less for 1 cannot hx the date with more certainty I formed a traveling acquaintance, upon a steam boat upon the Hudson river, with a gentle man who, on that occasion, related to me some incidents of the first voyage of Fulton, to Al bany, in his steam boat, the Clermont, which I have never met with elsewhere. The gen tleman's name I have lost; but I urged him, at the time, to publish what he related; which, however, so far as I know, he has never done. I have several times rapealcd the facts as they were told to me, and have often been reques ted to secure them from oblivion by giving them to the press. I chanced, said my narrator, to be at Alba ny, on business, when Fulton arrived there, in his unheard of craft, which every bod' felt so much interest in seeing. Being ready to leave and hearing that this craft was to retnrn to INew York, 1 repaired on board the boat and inquired for Mr. Fulton. I was referred to the cabin, and I there found a plain, gentle manly looking man, wholly alone, and engaged in writing. Mr. Fulton, I presume. Yes, sir. Do you return to New York with this boat? We shall try to get back, sir. Can I have a passage down? You can take your chance with us, sir. I inquired the amount to be paid, and after a moment s hesitation a sum, 1 tbink six do! lars, was named. The amount in coin I laid in his open hand, and with his eyes upon it he remained so long motionless that I supposed there might be a miscount, and said to him, is that right, sir? This roused him as from a kind of revcry, and as he looked up at me the big tears were brimming in his eyes, and his voice lauerea as ne saia, -excuse me, sir; out memory was busy as 1 contemplated this, the first pecuniary reward I have ever received for all my exertions in adopting steam to nav igation. I would gladly commemorate the occasion over a bottle of wine with you, but really I am too poor, even for that just now ; yet t trust vre may meet again, when this may not be so. The voyage to JN ew York was successlul, as all know, and terminated without any acci dent. Some four years after this, when the Cler mont had been greatly improred, and her name changed to The JVortA River, and when two other boats, namely, The Car of Jfeptune and the Faragon had been built, making Mr. Fulton's fleet three boats regularly plying be twecn'New York and Albany, I took passage upon one of these for the latter city. The cabin, in that day, was below; and as I walk ed its length.to and fro. I saw I was closely ob served by one .whom I supposed a strang er. Soon, however, I recalled the features of Mr. Fulton; but, without disclosing this, con tinu?d :ny walk and awaited the result At length, in passing his seat, our eyes met, when he sprang to his feet, aBd eagerly seizing my hand, exclaimed, I knew it must be you, for your features have never escaped me; and al though I am still far from being rich, yet I may venture that bottle now. It was ordered and during its discussion Mr. Fulton ran rapidly but vividly over his experience of the world's coldness and sneers, and of the hopes, fears disappointments and difficulties that were scattered through his whole career of discovery up to the very point of his final, crowning tri uph, at which he fully felt he had at last arri ved. And in reviewing all these said he, I have again and again recalled the occasion and the incident of our first interview, at Albany: and never have I done so without its renewing in my mind, the vivid emotions it originally caused. That seemed, and still does seem to me, the turning point in my destiny the di viding line between light and darkness, in my career upon earth ; for it was the first actual recognition of my usefulness of my fellow men. Such, then, were the events coupled with the very dawn of steam navigation a dawn so recent as to be still recollected by many and such as Fulton there related them, were the early appreciations, by the world, of a discov ery which has invaded all waters, causing a revolution in navigation which has almost lite rally brought the very, ends of earth iu con tact Frederika Bremer. A frisnd of Miss Bremer -has sent us the following attempt at English poetry, written by the distin guished authoress at Niagara, where she is staying at present, in company with Mr. and Mrs. Lowell. N. Y. Tribune. TO JAMES R. LOWELL. ' ' WITH A GOLD res. A gold pen is' a little thing But in thy poet-hand, -It will take life; it will take wing, - Become a magio wand, . More powerful, more wonderful, Thau alchnir of old; It can make minds all beautiful, Aud change all things to gold. Freoeiuka Bhlmeb. Niagara, Sept. II, 1850. Let yoar Sympathies Get out. Who that has experienced the joys of friend ship, and knows the worth of sympathy and affection, would not rather lose all that is beau tiful in nature's scenery, than be robbed of the hidden treasures of his heart ? Who would not bury his wife rather than bury his love for her? Who would not rather follow his child to the grave than entomb his paternal affection? Yes! God has a heart! and he loves, tenderly loves his children. Jesus Christ has a heart so warm and fervent that he could die on the cross to save the unworthy, whom he loved. Love is heaven's element, and the joys of affection of congenial spirits are the joys which animate the songs and inspire the harps of that blessed world. Whatever else man may be robbed of, oh, leave him his heart Without this he is a hu man hyena, unfit for earth or heaven. Cherish then your heart's best affections. Indulge in the warm and gushing emotions of blial, paternal, fraternal love. Hunk it not a weakness. God has the largest and the warm est heart in the universe. Ho is all heart rod is love! Fear not then to engage your heart's capacities, to give vigor to its exercise. Love as extensively, and as intensely as you can. Love God. Love everybody, and eve rything that is lovely. Teach your children to love the robin, to love their parents, to love their God.' Let it be the studied object of your domestic culture, to give them warm hearts, ardent affections. Bind yotn-whole family to gether by these strong cords. You cannot make thera too strong. Religion is love love to God-rlove toman. Abbot Sin and Folly of Scolding. "Fret not thyself in anywise to do evil.' Psalms xxxii, . 1. It is evil, and only evil, and that contin ually. David understands human naiye, and says "Fret not thyself in anywise to do eviL" That is, if you cannot speak without scolding, keep silence. 2. It destroys affection. No one ever did, ever can, or ever will love a habitual fretter, fault-finder, or scolder. Husbands, wives, chil dren, relatives, or domestics, have no affection for peevish fretful fault-finders. Few tears are shed over the graves of such. Persons of higu moral principle may tolerate them may Dear witu mem. cut tney cannot love them more than the sting of the nettles, or the noise of mosquitoes. ' Many a roan has been driven to a tavern, and to dissipation by a peevish. fretful wife. Many a wile has been made mis erable by a peevish, lrettul husband. 3. It is the Bane of Domestic Happiness. A fretful, peevish, complaining, fault-finding person in a family is like the continued chafing ot an innamcd sore. Wo to the man woman or child, who is exposed to the influence of such a temper in another. Nine-tenths of all domestic trials spring from this source. Mrs. D. is of this temperament. She wonders that her husband is not more fond of her company ; that her children give her so much trouble ; that domestics do not like to work for her; that she cannot secure the good will of young people. The truth is, she is fretful and peev ish. Children fear her and do not love her. She never yet gained the affections of a young person, nor ever will till she leaves of fretting. 4. 7i defeats the End of Family Govern ment. Good family government is the blend ing authority with affection, so as to secure re spect and love. Indeed, this is the great se cret of managing joung people. Now your fretters may inspire fear, but they always make two faults where they correct one. Scolding at a child, treating a child as though it had no feelings, inspires dread and dislike, and fosters those very dispositions from which many of the faults of childhood proceed. Mr. G. and Mrs. F. are of this class. Their chil dren' are made to mind ; but how ? Mrs. F. frets and scolds at her children. She is severe enough upon their faults. She seems to watch them in order to find fault She sneers at them treats them as though they had no feel ings. - She seldom gives ihem a command without a threat, and a long, running, fault finding commentary. When she chides, it is not done in a dignified manner. She raises her voice, puts on a cross look, threatens, strikes them, pinches their ears, slaps their hands, &c The children cry, pout, sulk, and poor Mrs. F. has to do her work over pretty often. Then she will find fault with her husband, because he does not fall in with her ways, or chime with her as a chorus. 5. Fretting and Scolding makes Hypocrites. As a fretter never receives confidence and affection, so no one likes to tell thera anything disagreeable, and thus procure for themselves a tretting. JNow children conceal, inasmuch as they cannot make up their minds to be frank and open hearted. So husbands con ceal from their wives and wives from their husbands. For a man may brave a lion, but he likes not to come in contact with nettles or mosquitoes. 0. J t Destroys One s Peace of M md. The more one frets, the more he may. A fretter will always have enough to fret at Especial ly if he or she has the bump of order and neatness largely developed. Something will always be out of place. There will all ways be some dirt somewhere. Others will not eat right, look right talk right he wi'l not do those things so as to please them. And fret ters are generally so selfish as to have no re gard for any one's comfort but their own. v . Ilis a Mark of Vulgar Disposition. Some persons have so much gall in their dis position, are so selfish, that they have no re gard for the feelings of others. All things must be done to please them. They make their husbands, wives.children, domestics, the conductors by which spleen and ill-nature are discharged. Wo to the children who are exposed to such influences it makes them callous and unfeeling, and when they grow up they pursue the same course with their children, or those entrusted to their man agement, and thus the race of fretters is per petuated. Lore's Last Request. "Farewell, farewell," 1 cried. When I re turn, thou'lt be my bride till then be faith ful, sweet adieu In silence oft I'll think of of you." Ihe glistening tears strained her bright eyes ber thickening breath is chocked with sighs her tongue denies her bosom sway "Farewell!" I tore myself away. "One moment stay, she stammered out; and quick as thought I wheeled about "My angel speak ! can aught be done to com fort thee when I am gone ? I'll send tbee specimens of art from every European mart 1 11 sketch for thee eacu Alpine scene, to let thee see where I have beea. A stone from Simplon's dreadful height, shall gratify thy curious sight I'll climp the fiery Etna's side to bring home treasures to my bride; and oh, my life, each ship shall bear a double letter to mytair. "Ah, George," the weeping nngel said, and on my shoulder fell her head "For constancy my tears are hostage but when you write please pay the postage." "How do you sell peaches?" asked a young gentleman yesterday of one of the boys who dealt in the article on the large bridge. 1 wo tor a cent, sir, exclaimed the gentle men, with apparent astonishment, for the peaches were very laige. "Two for a cent?" And be begun fumbling in his pockets. "Two for a cent!" and he kept up the search with his fingers. "1 wo of them great peach es for one cent!" ho repealed very deliberate ly. It was evident now that his fingers did not find what thev were searching for. "Two for a cent" he said once more, in a somewhat lower tone, and turning round to leave the basket "Two for a cent! Well by thunder! that is cheap enough if I only had a cent." rrovidence rost Horrible! At a recent performance of Hamlet in a neighboring city, we regret to learn that in the famous 'grave scene' it was discovered that the coffin was too long for the hole' in the floor. Imagine the agony of Hamlet, as he stood gracefully reclining on the shoulder of Horatio, witnessing the carpenter sawing of the legs of-the unfortunate deceas ed, to facilitate the interment of the body. Abany Argus. THE WIDOW. ' The widow is a dangerous thing, With soft, black, shining curls, And looketh more bewitchingly Than a host of romping girls; Her laugh is so delicious So kuowing, clear, beside, You'd never dream her thinking Soon lo become a bride. ' Her dress, thongh made of sable. Gives roundness to her form A touch of something thoughtful, A witching, winning charm; , And when she sits down by you, With quiet, easy grace - -' ( A teat may full unbidden, Or a smile light up her face. ' Her voice is soft melodious And lute-like in its tone; She sometimes sighs, " 'Tis dreadful To pass through life alone; " And then she'll tell you, you remind her Of the loved one dead and gone. Your steps, your form, your features;' Thus the widow will run on. Oh, listen, yet be careful, For well she plays her part, Her lips distil the nectsr That doth enslave the heart; Be guarded, or she'll win you. With sighs, and smiles, and tears; I faith, she'll wear the breeches, too, And box your silly ears. All about Tomatoes. Tomato Sauce. Take ripe Tomatoes, peel and stew them with apples, for sauce, and sea son with salt and pepper, If a due quantity of water be added, no salt will be necessary. Sauce thus prepared is not too acid to be eaten with meat, but when otherwise used the flavor is rendered more agreeable to the - palate of most people by adding a small quantity ot tine sugar or molasses. Tomato Dumplings. Take the skin care fully from the tomato without rupturing the meat The process of making, cooking, and saucing, is the same as that pursued in forming and preparing apple dumplings. Tomato Jelly. Having divested the to matoes of the rinds,squeeze them through a fine cloth, add to the mass its weight of dry sugar: boil to a jelly and bottle it closely. It should be kept in a cool but not freezing place. Jelly prepared in this manner, will retain its flavor for a long time. It is an excellent article." Broiled Tomatoes. Select the largest cut them in two and broil them over a moder ate fire till done. Add a little butter, or salt and pepper, and you have an excellent dish. Raw Tomatoes. Take the ripest fruit, cut it into vinegar in thin slices, the same as cu cumbers, add a little pepper and salt if you like, or use the same as other fruit This is an excellent dish. Tomato Omelet. Procure two quarts of perfectly ripe and fresh tomatoes, cut them carefully and simmer for the space of two minutes over a tolerable quick ore. Jut a few onions fine, and mix with due quantity of crumbled bread and a small lump of butter. When nearly done beat up eight eggs, and mix them thoroughly with the mass by rapid stirring. In a few moments the dish will be done. '-'': Fried Tomatoes. Slice and fry in good sweet butter, or without if you prefer. The rind should be first carefully removed. Or take apiece of good pork, cut into small pieces and add an onion, ot a size proportionate to your family: cut up hne, fry these brown: put in the tomatoes, cover them up, and fry till well done, this method is highly recommen ded and many who cannot endure tomatoes prepared in any other way, admire them when fried thus. Tomato Figs. These are best when pre pared by first scalding them and removing the skin, lo every peck ot iruit, add six pounds of suarar, cook them over the fire. ' No water or other liquid should be added until the sugar has dissolved and penetrated them and they are clarified. They should be placed on dishes to flatten and dry in the sun. If a little syrup be sprinkled over them occasion ally as they are drying, they will be greatly improved. As soon as dry, they should be carefully packed in boxes, adding some pow dered sugar when laying. Preserved accord ing to the above direction, tomatoes will keep a long time. The syrup remaining after the process, may be concentrated and bottled for use, the bottles being previously well cleans ed : after filling, closely seal with melted wax, to prevent the deteriorating effects of the air. . Germantown TeL to A sad case of domestic infelicity, such ns would make any spinster bless her stars and rejoice in her singleness, was investigated by the Mayor on Saturday morning. Mary Karvin appeared to testify against Michael, her liege lord, who had, according to her story shamefully misused her. Michael had tasted too freely of the contents of a jug in the cup board, supposed to contain whiskey, and so becoming elated, and rather consequential in his own eyes, ordered his Mary to black his boots! Mary reluctantly complied. He then wanted something to eat Mary spread some bread and butter for him. He wanted some thing more substantial. Mary "put on the kattle to bile some pratees" for him. "I want some eggs," said Michael. Mary went to market and bought the eggs. "An what did you give for them,' said Michael, on her re turn, "nine cents a dozen." said Mary. "Och, by St Patrick, that's too much," said Michael. "No, no, that's chape indeed," said Mary. From this contradiction Michael be came wrathy, and struck his wife, cutting her lip severely, This was too much for Mary to suffer quietly, so Michael was arrested Mary wanted the Mayor to grant her a divorce im mediatly ! His honor complied with the re quest as far he was able, by sending Michael to jail. Cin. Enq. o Go out in the woods, Sambo,' said a South ern master, to one of his negroes, 'and cut me some crotches for a fence to stick in the ground like this: making at the same time an inverted on a table with his own fingers. The negro took his axe, went into the woods, was gone all day, and returned at last with only his axe in his hand. 'Where are your crotches, Sambo.'' asked his master. 'Could'nt Cnd none massn, no how.' 'Could'nt find any,' said his master; 'why there are thousands of thera in the woods. Why, look at that tree: there are half a do- zen on that: could'nt you find any like that?' pointing to a forked branch. 'Ob, yes, massa, plenty ot dem kind ; but dey all crotch up ; 'tough t you wanted thera that crotch down' ' Whatever a woman asserts, you may as well admit at oncp, for she will never yield. A Glance at the Fast Gen. Hauler. "Resolved, That we have seen with regret. for some time past, that there was a hard mon ey faction growing up in Ohio, who are oppos ed to all banks of circulation, and whose doc trines, if carried out, in the present condition of the people, must be ruinous to the best in terest of the community, especially to the whole debtor class, who will be crushed by a policy so fatal and destructive. "Resolved, That it is high time for the peo ple to take their affairs into their own bands, and that so long as ihey entrust them to reck less demagogues or to violent, ultra politicians of any party, all the industrious, business class es of the community must be the sufferers." The above are two of several resolutions of fered by the late lamented Gen. Thos. L. Ha mer, of Brown county, to a Democratic meet ing at West Union, on the 25th of March, 1848, and which were published in the Ohio States man on the 19th of April of the same year. They were adopted by that meeting, as the deliberate convictions of the Democracy in that part of Ohio at that time, and no doubt em bodied the views and feelings of a large ma jority of that party throughout the state. A short time after this, the Locofoco party threw off the thin disguise of "Bank Reform," and boldly planted themselves on the hard money idea. But titter defeat awaited them, and for some years the issue has .been with held. In the January convention, 1850, the subject was again introduced, and adopted. At the July Convention the question was again raised, and, though some few men tried to avert the storm and prevent the adoption of these measures, yet the hards prevailed, and resolutions, which will be found at the head of this paper, were carried. The Locofoco party in Ohio have planted themselves openly on this issue. The people of the State are called upon to sanction this doctrine at the polls. Judge Wood stands before the people, claim ing their suffrages for Governor on this issue. Members of the two branches of the Legisla ture are to be elected on this issue. The re sult of the election this fall, whatever may be set up, will be claimed, and with a show of justice, as a verdict of the people on this issue. Of course, in this trial, every freemen is a ju ror. He should know the whole "case. He should understand the practical effects and bearings of the measure. To enable those who do not agree with us on most questions to form an enlightened opinion, we have introduced the resolutions of Gen. Hamer. We know he had much influence over many members of the party with which he acted. They have been in the habit of at least considering bis opinions. We ask the people to do it now. If they had weight in 1842, they have equal weight now. The facts stated and the positions assumed are of just as much importance to the great mass of the people now as then. ; Upon this question he was clearly right He saw, as every man of ordinary sagacity must . see, the adoption of the hard money rule would effectually and ut terly ruin a large and meritorious class of community. The laboring classes the men in all kinds of b usiness who happen to be in debt, who are so unfortunate as not to be born of rich parents and with gold spoons in their mouths these classes must he crushed by the adoption of the cardinal principle of the loco foco party in Ohio as promulgated in their ar ticles of faith. People of Ohio farmers, mechanics, labor ing men of classes and professions to you the appeal is now made, and the day of de cision draws nigh. Ten days from to-day, you will be called upon to decide this issue at the ballot-box. Be not deceived by false profes sions. Do not permit yourselves to be lulled asleep by the assurance that there is no dispo sition on the part of these hard money men to enforce their doctrine if they get the pow er. That will be a poor plea when the blow conies. If you desire ruin if you court destruction if you are sick of your present prosperity, and wish to come down to the price of labor ers in hard money countries then the road is plain, the course is clear. You have only to go to the polls, vote for Wood and for Lo cofoco Legislators, and you have done your part to bring it about Let Wood be elected Governor let a majority of Locofooos be re turned to the Legislature, and what will be said and claimed by our opponents? Will they not, at once, proclaim that the people of Ohio have pronounced on an issue.fairly made, that they are opposed to any other currency than gold and silver; and that henceforth there shall be no other allowed in Ohio! Will not the members of the Constitutional Convention, when they come together in December, say that the people of Ohio had ratified the report of Mr. Larwill, and had decided that there should be a clause in the new constitution for ever prohibiting all banks in Ohio. Of course they will. We desire that the will of the majority may pravail. We can stand the hard money reign if it mvsl come, as well as the most of people. We only desire that there should be a fair ex pression of views. This can only be obtained by our citizens voting upon this hard money issue as they desire that issue to be decided. We ask tbem to consider the views of Gen. Hamer. We ask thera to reflect upon the effect which the prevalence of the hard money idea carried out, will have on the prosperity of the state generally, and upon that of the individuals that compose the State.

The fact is this, ' before engaging upon the railroad I resign-' ed my appointment as Resident Engineer on ' the canal, and the acting commissioner in', charge of the work, from whom I received the ' appointment, made such an arrangement as ' released me, and I am not in the position, charged. . . ' Yours, &c, " , ' A. G. CONOVER. " , Piqua, September 7, 1850. , . The Journal adds: Such is the plan ofIec-.! tioneering adopted by the Locofoco party to defeat Mr. Conover. ' Falsehood in this in-' stance, is branded upon the Statesman at the ' very stirt ... . We have received the following communi-) cation from one who knows Mr. Conover well. What da the people of Ohio tbink of such &- tempts to uphold the party which has nursed, and defended the Yontzes, and MulrineSj and. Barneys, and the whole batch of Galphint that for years plundered the state of tens of thou- sands of dollars, under Locofoco Tule? ' We earnestly invite the attention, of our , readers to the following article, communica ted to the Ohio State Journal: : . . -'t Editor ok Ohio Statb Journal i- In the1 Statesman of yesterday, I noticed an article' headed "Board of Public Works, &c," in which the editor of that veritable sheet indulges irk" "surprise" at the "singular" conduct of Messrs. Forrer and Conover, and "supposes" tbem "' both to be "still in the pay of the state.". Has ' the editor of the Statesman not seen the card ' of Mr. Conover copied into almost half the pa- ' pecs of the state, disclaiming any official cbn-; nection with, the state having resigned the ' office he held at the time of his nomination for member of the Board of Public Works. - ' ' - Those who know Mr. Conover do not need ' that any one1 should undertake to defend hint ' from a broken down politician, a partisan edi tor whose reproach is praise, and from whom ' commendation would be censure. There are those however, who are personally acquainted ; with this' gentleman, and who 'unfortunately ' have as little knowledge of the exact amount of reliance to be placed npon the statements ' ot the btatesman. ' - ' Mr. Conover entered the service of the state about the time of the location of the Mi-' ami Extension canal, and the writer very well recollects him as forming one of a little band : of engineers who penetrated and explored the ' then almost unbroken forest, extending from St. Mary's to the Maumee. A pair of oxen ' and rough cart carried their tent, tools, instrn-' ments, and the very plain fare upon which they subsisted while locating the line of the canal. There were then no roads through that part of the slate. The country was flat, wet and in salubrious, and they spent months of hard la- ' bor cutting their way through the woods, er- ' amining diiFercnt routes and sleeping upon the ground. In this way commenced the practi' cal education of Mr: Conover. It was contlri- " ued and proceeded equi passu with the prog- ress of the public works of the state. On ! their completion, he was left in charge as re- idont engineer of that portion of the Miami canal extension to which he had given, during ' the progress of the work, such effecient aid. Thus by bis own' unaided efforts, patient -and laborious industry, obliging and gentle- manly deportment, he bas earned an envia-, ble reputation has won the confidence and ' respect of all who know him, and been select-! cd by the Whigs of Ohio as a suitable person to discharge the duties of member of the'1 Board of Public works. If elected, he will be an active and efficient officer. He will bring to his aid an amount of practical informstion which, joined to his good sens, industry and f energy, admirably qualifies him for the post- ' tion in which his friends seek to place him. , A better selection could not have been made.; The people have a large interest in placing ' just such men in charge, of their business. ' Along the line of the Miami canal, where Mr. Conover is best known, he is also most favora-1 bly known. There he cannot be soiled bv the ' slimy concoctions of the Statesman. ' Inhere he is appreciated as a correct, efficient public ' officer; and the voters of that rcgiou will not ' be deterred from giving tbeir suffrages by the mandates of any man who has stood at the "public crib," "fodder or no fodder," for "half a life-time, and who has always lived well, when ' bis friends had .the ey.J Sept 20, 1850.
