THE PERRYSBURG JOURNAL. Editorial Page. Early in May next, at the close of the present vol ume, this paper will be materially enlarged. j23?-Some of our citizens are much averse to the Toledo bridge project, and say it will be resisted to the utmost. J2-The Cincinnati Gazette and other pa pers recorrmsnd that but one set of electors be selected by both the Republican and K.N. parties, in each of the free states, with on understanding and pledge that the candidates of the party receiving the highest vote in such states as beat the pro-slavery ticket, shall receive thi vote of the electoral college so chosen. This seems to be the only course left open by which ths pro-slavery party can be baaten and every man enabled to vote his untramelled sentiments. It is a good move. The State Journal says that tin state house commissioners of Ohio have made a report to th3 legislature. It appears that the last legislature was importuned, as the present one is, for large appropriations, and did appropriate $175,01") ; b it the commis sioners have spent it all, and besides have run tin state in debt, for work done and materi als furnished, to thi extraordinary anmu.ntof 8333,123.42, without any law or authority whatever. This debt is left for the republi cans to piy; an I, in addition, u debt of 8150,000 for the lunatic asyums. This is what the democrats m3an, we suppose, when they resolve so frequently that they are in favor of "an economical aJministration of the government." Of the COS convicts in the Ohio peniten tiary, 53 are jecond convictions, 9 third, 3 fourth, and 1 fifth; 422 are intemperate, 262 are married, 50 are. blacks or mulattoes, 26 are over 50 years of age, 214 cannot read nor write, and 400 have no trades. The Port Clinton Register says that the treasurer's office of Ottawa county was open ed a short time since, and over 86,500 taken therefrom. The eastern and western bound trains were both blockaded by the snow a little west of there, so that both trains laid over there the night of the robbery. There is a strong probability that a baud of bur glars were on board the train from the west. A number" of offices were opened and exam ined in Toledo the night previous and left locked as found. The railroad office there was examined on the night the robbery was committed, and locked as found, showing tint the persons were prepared for doing a general business in the way of opening and locking doors. If the governor of Kentucky should order the arrest and delivery of the late fugitive slaves in Cincinnati, to b.3 tried for murder, iu answer to the requisition of Gov. Chase, it may be regarded as a signal act of state comity. The following is the constitutional provision in such cases : " A person charged in any state with trea son, felony, or any other crime, who shall f.zc from justice, and be found in another s'.ate, shall, on demand of the executive au thority of the state from which he fled, be delivered up, to be removed to the state hav ing jurisdiction of the crime.'' Th?s3 slaves have not " fled from justice." Tii?y wjre taken from the custody of the state, anl removed from its territory, under color of a legal process. They do not com ply with tha first quality nace.ssary to confer upon tin executive of Ohio thi right of re quisitionthat of being fugitives. L. D. Campbell, M. C, has abandoned the republicans and gone over to the support of Fillmore and Donelson. His constituents will probably think that " one good turn de serves another," and leave " Little L?.w.'' at home hereafter to recuperate his " morals of politics." The very grave mistake of elect ing him speaker of the house was happily avoided. Who is the next doughface? An unfortunate difficulty occurred at the; school near Millgrove on the22d ult.,betweenj the leachjr. Harrison Ivdley, son of Judgejiime of Perrysburg, and James Wollam, lad aged 17. The teacher attempted to chas-j the scholar, when he drew a small club; that he had concealed, and struck the teacher on the head, and upon the latter approaching: him again in his seat, he drew a dirk knif anil stabbed him twice, once in the upper joint of the hip, severely, and once slightlyjanl near the knee. live, school was broken up for the. time being, but the teacher is recov-! ering, and will probably be able to go on with it in a few days. The lad is under bonds for trial at the next term of Wood common pleas for assault with intent to kill. of forged returns, defies the su-j Birstow, the bogus governor of Wiscon sin, whose certificate of election was obtain ed by mean u:. 1 .v.. k.-v r,. 1 mm, aim daja tuai ue m hi uiuiutuiu ino I' J :i tiMii wr d vorir ivniu 1 1 ntnilnKld t. linn ' TiieKnow-NothinG Presidential Nomi-! nation.

The provision in the new tax law dividing assessments into two payments Decemb.tr and June recommends itself to the minds of the masses: it is in fact only allowing the people to keep their money in their own pockets until it is wanted for state purposes, instead of paying it into the treasury to lie idle, or hi speculated with, as has been done in years past, and might be again, should the plunderers once more iiet into power. The law provides, as we understand if, that half the assessment shall be paid at the usual (thi whole, may be paid if the Ihx pay Kelley, acr choosis) and the balance in June, with the usual penalties and power to enforce col tise lection in December as heretofore on only the half then due. We have heard it suggested on reliable authority that '.he bill would prob ably be amended in the house and concurred in by the. senate, miking th; whole tax due payable in D.-cember, in cjsj of delin- qnenry in the payment of the half.
