How and : for ; what purposes tliis last a
mount was taken from tbe Treasury , the
Records do not show, and we call upon the
editor of the Eagle to explain if he can.
- We have adopted in all our calculations
tbe highest retail price for which Mr. Tut
hill's Stationery could have been sold, and
- in footing up the amount be has overcharg
ed the county, we find that it reaches the
enormous sum of
?88 4.V
This amount added to the ,
$869 55;
not accounted for, swells the amount to
$1,657 95,
which has gone into Mr. Tuihill's pockets
as payment for services done the Red
Lodge Clique, and through the instru
mentality of partisan favoritism. Thus it
Will bo seen how firmly . these men have
been united for the past twenty years by
the "cohesive power of public plunder."
Is it any wouder they are making such
desperate efforts to retain possession of the
county Treasury, men who have been for
so long a period pensioners on the bounty
of the l.onest tax-payers?
Knowing, as the editor of the Fugle did,
that we were engaged in ferreting out the
amouut of his stealings, lie, in Lis. last is
ue, in . order to weaken the force of our
facts, charges us with having made but a
bill against the City Council in which was
' an error otjlve dollars! ... But we showed
in our last issue that even thai was a false
hood. Truly has it been said that "drown
ing men catch at straws." But to show how
effectually Iheir own weapons cau be turn
ed against them, we copy the following
bill presented to the Board of Commission
ers by the editors of the Eagle and the a
' mount allowed. The first column denotes
the amount charged by the Eagle and the
second the amouut allowed:
Am'l charged.,
: $5G.G2 1-2.
And yet according to their own bidding
for printing blanks namely fifteen cents
per quire these bills should have still
been reduced ,. .....
Making a difference, in two bills, of over
one hundred dollars! And yet tliese men
declaim against an imaginary account con
talningan error of only five dollars! ' Per
haps, however, they were anticipating an
exposition of their own guilt, and in order
to paliateit asmuch as possible, made their
false charge against us. But it is not the
first time thieves have cried out 'aitop
thief!'' Its an old trick and well under
stood by the people.' .. A ',
In our researches we accidently came a
cross a contract between the Commission.
era. and IV C. Whitman, leasing the large
two story frame building adjoining the pub
lie offices to this latter gentleman for a pe
riod of ten years for the insignificant sura
of 845 a tear. We venture the assertion
that this building could have been leased
the same number of years for at least 9 i 50
per annum; but we suppose this was an
other act of favoritism in order to give
two men, high in power, namely Judge
H. C. Whitman and Gov. Medill, their
offices at the expense of the tax-payers of
the county. Gov, Medill occupies the
lower floor and II. C Whitman the np
pcr.at acost toonch of only $22,50 per an
num. making these men, in the short peri
od of ten years, pensioners on the County
Treasury in the sum of.
There are many poor and hard-working
mechanics in this city who would cheer
fully and willingly give $100 per annum
for this same building, and even then con
aider U an act of charity on the part of the
Commissioners for putting it down even to
that figure. But the working classes are
not the ones to meet with such favor they
must work hard at manual labor from ear
ly morn till night, pay a high rent and ex-
horbitant taxes, while uovcrnors ana
Judges revel at their expense. A greater
outrage was never perpetrated on the work
ing classes, and we trust they will indig
nantly frown dowu this system of dema
goguo' favoritism. If the county feels
itself able to assist any one, let worthy men
at least receive her benefits.
Letthe blinduess of party spirit be re.
moved, that the people may be able to see
to what degradation tho county Govern
ment has sunk under the reign of dema
goguery, and that.seeing all this, they may
restore the good old . era, when honesty,
capacity and faithfulness were held to be
the tests of official qualification, and when
the Government was held to be designed
to subserve the interests of the people and
not merely the interests of the leaders of
the Red Lodge Clique.

Now if the editors of the Eagle really
considered it dishonest to present an ac
' oount which contained an error of 85,
which we deny baring done, what is their
Potutovs. :.
The indications everywhere afford, a
prospect of a tumble in the price of pota
toes. They are now selling on slnpboard
at Boston for 75 cents a bushel, though
the hucksters about the streets are tiying
to get 91,25. They are coming in great
quantities from Novia Scotia, since the
Reciprocity treaty went into operation. In
Detroit they have come in from the coun
try and from Canada in large quantities,
And prices have declined there to 75 cents
a bushel. In this city the price of pota
toes is still kept up, but as they come
down elsewhere a like result must follow
here. There is no doubt that the extreme
rates now prevailing aret more the effect
of speculation Miun of real scarcity of the
of Lake Superior, and north of Lake Mich-
gan and Wisconsin, which now composes
a part of Michigan. It is entirely sepa
rated from it by Late Huron and Michi
gan, and baa no toatttral connection ' with
the rest of that State". It la the seat of the
great mineral wealth of tho nation. Its
mines of copper and iron are unsurpassed
by any in tbe world.' It has been the do
sire of the inhabitants to sever their polit
ical connection with Michigan, as their in
terests were diverse, and they were so far
distant from Ue capital and business por
tion of the State. . Michigan has hereto
fore refused to grant their request, but it
seems sober second thought has brought
an assent..
Two years ago Wisconsin passed an act
granting the northern part of its territory
to the proposed State of Superior. . The
proposed northern boundary of Wisconsin,
and southern line of Superior, extends
from the Mississippi at the mouth of the
Chippewa river; up this last named river
until it strikes the United States Correction
Line between towns 30 and 31, and then
following thatline east to Green Bay, which
it intersects near the mouth of the Brule
river of Green Bay. This would throw all
the country on the St. Croix into the pro
posed new State a fine agricultural re
gion, which would find ita account in be
ing connected politically with Superior.
The lerritory from Wisconsin and from
Michigan will form the future State of Su
perior. It will extend from the western
point of Lake Superior, embracing all the
south shore thereof, to the St: Mary's riv
er, and the northern portions of Lake Hu
ron and Michigan, . The "Saul" will be
on its eastern border, and the great mines
of copper and iron will be on its northern
line. Its western boundary will be the St. 1
Croix river. It is destined to be one of
the most interesting, weakhy, and impor
tant portions of the Union.
The States of Michigan and Wisconsin
being agreed to this arrangement, Con
gress, by virtue of the power vested in it
by th 3d section of the 4th article of the
Constitution, has authority to erect it into
territory or to admit it, at once, as a
State. There may perhaps be some ob
jection on the part of the slaveholding in
terest to this arrangement; but we trust
better counsels will prevail. Where move
meutsof this kiud are made obviously for
political ends, we should not feel disposed
to extend to them our countenance. But
this claim has great merits, per se, and
should be treated fairly, We trust there
is liereafiei to be a North, not for the pur
pose of aggression, or injustice, but for the
purpose of doing exact justice, without re
gard to sectional lines. -
The Mitmettotian, after closing the de
tails of this proposition, soars off into (he
realms of fancy, and apostrophises thus el
oquently: "Then hail! all hail, to the coming new
State of Superior; and hail the State of
Dacotah, which, west of the Big Sioux
and of the Red Rivur of the North, and
with its center in the glorious valley of the
River Jacques, shall bound Minnesota on
the West; and hail to another sovereign
community still beyond in the fertile val
leys of the Black feet, (the bitsekah,) B
nnJst the spurs of tho Rocky Mountains.
; And onward, westward (till be thy
march, great Star of Empire! Let State
rank upon btate, until from the Atlantic to
the Pacific, there shall be one unbroken
line of enlightened empires, where the
school house and the church spire are the
land-marks of progress, where freo indus
try meots respect and reward and all the
comforts of life abound; where legislation
is pure and unbought, and all men are se
cured in the proper enjoyment of 'life, lib-
rig and the pursuit of happiness.

' A State Fair t be Held.
We learn direct from Columbus, .that
the Bute Board of Agriculture, which has
just been in nession, have resolved to hold
a State Fair the coming fall, as usual. The
Railroads have guaranteed the same facil-
ties as heretofore. It will be held at Co
lumbus on the 18th, 19th, 20th, and 21st
of September next, on the beautiful ground
of M. L. Sullivar.t, Esq., being the same
that was occupied in 1852. Columbus
has alreadv subscribed 93,000, and thus
the matter is at last definitely settled. 1
Hon. Wk. II. Gibson, of Senaca county,
has been named with much commenda
tion, as a candidate for Treasurer of State.
Mr. Gibson is well known as an able law
yer and a fine financier. ' He was on the
State ticket two years ago aa a candidate
for Attorney General of State. He would
give great strength to the ticket, and make
as good a State Treasurer as the people 01
Ohio can obtain.
JtSTln a late speech at Winchester Mr.
Wise said that he had spoken 180 hours in
this campaign, and he was confident be
would be elected by at least 12,000 ma
jority. The opposition papers are just as
confident that he will be beaten from 20.
000 to 40,000 majority. SomeboJy is des
tiued to be disappointed.

furiously, throwing out burning soot upon
liw' roof. -'At first the men thought they
would procure buckets of water and ' wet
the shingles so that they would not ignite,
but upon reflection, concluded that this
was a dangerous experiment and abandon

possible In a short time a spark fell
through the shingles, and upon a heap of

instantaneous and terrible. Fortunately
all the workmen, by using their legs to

A Good Hit. One of the chief charges
against tho Know Nothings or American

they meet in secret. Mr. Patton.the can
didate for Attorney General in Virginia,
says: :
: "The American pnrty choose to bold
their meetings in secret, as the Whigs and
Democrats have been and are in the habit
ol holding se:ret caucuses by night or day.
This party enter, it is said', into ' mutual
obligations as to their party action; no
matter what is their form, thev can't be
held more binding than the Democrats
claim to hold the implied obligations of
their party. A violation of them, by dis
obeying the behest of the party or quit

Il was to be determined by universal suff

division in the following words: 'Soldiers,
there is an election to-day, to determine
whether Napoleon shall be consul for life.
It is to be a matter of the free choice of the

this distress.
