92 THE PERRYSBURG JOURNAL.
Ay Ohio Farmer in Illinois. The last Chicago Democrat has the following: Mr. Sullivant, of Columbus, Ohio, has re cently purchased 80,000 acres of land in this State. He has selected 32,000 acres 50 sections or about a township and a half, in a body, situated in Champaign county, lor a farm, which he intends to cultivate. He proposes to fence it off into sections by hedging it with Osage Orange twenty bush els of the seed of which he has on hand for this purpose. Another gentleman, from Zanesville, Ohio, has recently purchased 100,000 acres in different parts of this State. There is, just now, a great demand for lands. Anti-Poison. The Albany Journal very properly suggests, unless the people of Ohio are a great deal more abstinent than the peo ple of that State, one chemist in a county cannot begin to detect all the adulterated liquor. The fact is, that there is so little brandy or wine now sold, that is unadulter ated, it would hardly more than supply the demand for medical and mechanical purpo ses, if it could do as much as that. There is an evident propriety in an inspection of liquor that is to be retailed, if not a positive and increasing necessity for some such pro vision of law. Cin. Enq. Gen. Cary, the temperance lecturer, and who aspires to lead the temperance party in politics, is out flat-footed against the tem perance law of the last session. It was voted for by every man elected on the Maine law issue in the Senate, and by all save one in the House. The General, doubtless, fears that his vocation as a temperance lecturer will be lost, if the law should prove accept able. Ohio State Democrat. Ex-President Fillmore. We hear that President Pierce has invited Ex-President Fillmore to visit Washington on his way North, tendering him the hospitalities of the White House while among us again. His acceptance will be exceedingly gratifying to all in Washington, as wrell as to the dis tinguished invitor. Wash. Star. Washington City High Prices. Ex tract from a letter of the Washington cor respondent of the Pennsylvanian, published in Philadelphia, dated 20th April last: "Marketing in Washington just now is high enough to collapse the most bloated purse. Mercer potatoes are selling for $4 per bushel. Roosters which must have crowed during the last Presidential campaign with all the vigor of mature years, readily bring fifty cents each. Butter, as strong as Samson, forty cents a pound. Thin, scrag gy, stringed beef, which no honest Pennsyl vanian would look at, commands sixteen cents a pound. A good sized turkey robs you of a quarter eagle. Apples from the stand fetch six to twelve cents each ! Afloat. The New York papers announce the raising of the Ericsson, and her being towed into dry dock preparatory to having her works again put in order.' It is thought her machinery is not materially injured; the destruction is to her cabinet work and upholstering, which it is estimated will cost some $30,000 to aU,UUU to restore and renovate the ship. The Cincinnati Commercial says: Since the passage of Mr. Eckley's bill giving to Justices of the Peace jurisdiction in collec tion cases to the amount of 8300, the magis trates of the city are doing one-fourth more business than before. Litigants are better end cheaper served. The law prohibiting the circulation of small notes in Virginia, which is to go into effect on the first of next month, is very un favorably received in some quarters, a nd some of the newspapers of the State predict from its enforcement the most direful consequen ces. ". The most awkward thing in or out of all creation, is a woman trying to run. They can't do it. They are not a running insti tution except with their tongues. If there are two arrangements in the world that were never made for fleetness on the pedal, ibey.are womea and ducks. If you don't believe it, get up a race and see, Cuba. A telegraphic dispatch says In the event of war between the United States and Spain, the Captain General of Cuba has u decree ready to be issued at any moment, abolishing slavery and arming the slaves. The very attempts to add slave territory to this Union may be the means of setting the slaves in Cuba free. The slave democracy now in power are digging the grave of the peculiar institution. Cleve. Herald, A Question for Tax Payers. Under whig rule, the public works yielded a net revenue, over expenses, of from 300,000 to 150,000. Last year, under locoi'oco rule, the net pro ceeds over expenses were about 50,000. In 184b, the total taxes levied were 2.580,073 14. In -1853, they amounted to 7.804,100 84 ! In short, every department has increas ed under locofoco rule in about the same proportion as the above. So much for loco foco promises of retrenchment and reform.

In the progress of the trial of Kissane, Cummings, Cole, & Co., in Arkansas, the following in cident, characteristic ot the manners ot that refined community, is related. Sidnev C.

CLEANING WALL PAPER. Wall paper the order of the day now, and all persons' find their paper dirty would make saving by cleaning it, instead of putting on! new. The best process for doing this is to take about two quarts of wheat bran, tie it up in a uunuie in course iianuei, aim mu over the paper. It will cleanse the whole paper ot all descriptions ot dirt and spots than any oiher means that can be used. Some use bread, but dry bran is! bter. The Secretary of the Navy has determined to build one of the six steam frigates at Eos ton, one at Philadelphia, one at New York, one at Washington and two at Norfolk. Norfolk always has a double share. An attempt is about to be made to raise the hull of the steamer Erie, which was burnt andsunk in 18-11, with a large amount of specie on board.
