THE DANES AND,.TIIE HOLSTEINERS.
The account last week left the Holstciners
preparing to make aa attempt to recover the
tev of Friederickstad, (a fortified place, with
about 2,400 inhabitant,) which commands the
river Eyder, and which- they had "" abondoned
after the Kittle of Idsted,. Tho operations tor
this purpose commenced on the- 2l)th of -Sep-t,-mher.
and after five "days,- during which
it was believed they ha"d sufficiently crippled
the external defence of tlia uanes to renuer
it practicable to take the town by storm, and
a general attack was resolved upon. On. the
. 3d- of Octobar, therefore, the movement was
ordered, and the ilolsteiu army advanced in
threa columns from three different points.
But altough theVhighest "amont rof personal
.daring was shown, the day closed.'with the
hitter fact that in each case it had been .shown
in vain, and that a heavy, loss had once more
been incured without effecting the smallest

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1850..
The Rail Road.
A telegraph dispatch to this place, informs
us that the city of Toledo has voted in favor
of taking $50,000 slock in the Wellington and
Toledo Railroad. The vote earried by some
200 mai., showing that the citizens of Toledo
are pretty unanimous in their determination to j
secure the building of this Rail road. I he
vote also shows that a few dollars extra tax
for a year or two, is not sufficient impediment
to them, to oppose a work of such magnitude,
and which is of so much importance to North
ern Ohio, and in fact, wo might say, to- the
whole West .
We learn, from private sources, that the
citizens of Huron county have taken stock to
the amount of $175,000, and that they will
undoubtedly increase it to $200,000.
In view of these facts, what is the duty of
the citizens of this county ? Do they ' intend
to aid in the construction of this road ? Or
do they expect to stand with their hands in
their pockets, and wait for the road to build
itself? We. trust that the latter course will
not be the one pursued, for that kind of expe

It was by the interference of the citizens of
Sandusky city, Perrysburg, &c, that the vote
was lost in this county. The most shameful
system of misrepresentation and lying was re
sorted to, in order to succeed in their nefari
ous schemes. Lying Handbills of tho most
outragous character, and spurious tickets, were
distributed by hundreds through the border
townships of the county. But the road is
bound to be built any how, and just where
the people want it and no thanks to those
small villages who interfere with the business
of their superiors. Two or three very large
LITTLE men of Perrysburg are marked, and
will be most cordially remembered by the
citizens of this county. One of them is known
