Toe Jenny Lind Ticket Auction.
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
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
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
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.

Fulton's First Steam Voyage.
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
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

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.

"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."

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 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

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.
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?'

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
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.

On which the O. S. Journal very justly re-
marks: Now,' the' people of Ohio well know
how to appreciate the. Statesman for truth '
and honesty, when they know that Mr. Cono
ver has not been in the employ of the state
for some time, and that the editor of the '
Statesman knew it when he penned the above J
falsehood. On Wednesday last we published -in
the Journal the following note from Mr. ;
Conover. It was published in the Piqua Reg- t
istcr some days since: -
Johs W. Dkrfrees, Esq. Sir : I have seen
published in several Democratic papers a state
ment charging me with holding tbe appoint-
ment of Resident Engineer on the Miami and
Erie Canal and receiving a salary from. the.
state, when at the same time I was in the em-',
ploy of a railroad company. 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
