Eprron or JorKVAtr As the legislature draw to a close, such bills as have been occupying the attention of committees are reported back and finally disposed of. This makes lively times (or all conndeted with it. One of the most Important bills of the present session was the one providing for the sale of railroads. There are a number of railroad companies in the state that will avail themselves of its provisions at nn early day. it i designed to protect railroad companies ss tar as may be rotnistent with the interests of their creditors and of the consistent Publict Another bill relative to railroads, of considerable Im portance, hs also passed. I refer to the bill a I Job is designed to prevent the combination of certain companies to monopolize business and prevent a legitimate and pro per competition. This bill was Introduced, I believe, at the suggestion of the IViends of the Davtnn k Miehican Railroad, and it owes much of its success t" the untiring efforts of the superintendent of that Mad. It will enable them to reduce their tariff on all freight to lie carried over tne v inrmnati, Hamilton Uayton rood, without uitntn lsinng ineir pronts, 1 The bill to encourage and insure the safe keeping of the public arms in the bands of Volunteer companies has passed. This bill allows each company five dollars per man to be exclusively applied to the care of the compa ny s inns, A bill has passed which prohibits revolving swings, whirligigs, shows, c, from a nearer approach to coun ty fair grounds than ono-half a mile, unless bv permis sion of tho board of managers. the mil to punish those who may he in the habit or marking the tickets of doubtful voters, passed and is now a law. The bill providing for the erection of a new peniten tiary passed both branches of the lienerallv Assembly and the Senate has had about thirty ballots on the lecation without any approach towards' a seltlomont of the question. Hamilton has had the highest vote, and the contest will probably rest lietweon that place and Zanesville. I have no doubt hut its loention at Hamil ton would best proniotethe interests of your conntv, since the communication is direct, and It would also add much to the business of the Dayton A Michigan road, in which your people are deeply interested. The bill .'or leasing tbe public works still hangs fire in the Senate. Tho Backus company's bid of $10,000 per year for ten years, which passed the House, drew forth other propositions ; one from Conover A Co,, of Pious for 15,000 1 one from Old Jo. Cooin-r, of Cincinnati, for $20,000 : and still another from t7mover &. Co.. for $25.- 000. The Senate in committee of the whole, struct) out the specific leose, and adopted a plan for leasing to tho highest bidder, providing that they should not be loosed for less than $20,000. A motion to make the minimum correspond wilh the bid of Conover A Co., $25,000, was voted down, to the surprise of all. The old rats still hang alxmt here. They embrace a largo numlicr of the real old Norway strim-, wilh occasionally a man who has hitherto liorne a good character. The fate ot the measure is vet in doubt. The committee appointed to fit upon a plan for tho an portionmcnt of the State for Congressional pnrposca.have reported a bill for that purpose. It wa agreed uxin in Republican caucus, but dixs not, of course, satisfy all Republicans ; and some of them will vote against it t perhaps enough to compel a change in the present draft, or defeat it altogether. The plan now proposed makes the fifth district embrace the following counties ! Wil liams, Fulton, Lucas, Wood, Otluwa, Sandusky and Sen eca. The district, as thus constituted, will have a popu lation of 133,426 ; being more than three thousand over the number nt inhabitants required lor a district. lien you reflect that moat of the counties composinir the dis trict aro new and rapidly increasing in ponuhitinn. vuu will agree with me that wo should have less, rather tlian more than 130,000 inhabitants. Again: tho interests of the district are not mutual. Seneca, Sandusky and Ot' tawa, arc strangers, naturally so, to the balance of the district.

King Cotton. to or To The farmers aid nuchanics, the solid men of Kentucky, Maryland and Virginia are said to be hostile lo the theory that cotton is Ling. There being none produced in those Hiates, of course there is r.othing to recommr nd it lo their favor. The cotton States' theory is to buy everything in Europe, where the cotton is lo be sold ; but this does not suit Kentucky, Maryland and Virginia, which sell hogs, cat tle, wheat and corn.to the free Hiates. These States want ma dels both ways, Nor' and South, snd a hocft market as well as a for eign one. The cotton theory of selling ev erything and buying eveiything on the other side of the Atlantic, does not suit tbeir rase.

That the adminis tration will be kustained in its elTorts to pre serve the Oovernment we have not the least doubt. It is a quarrel the Free Slates have sought to avoid but being dragged into it will bravely maintain their principles and h.inor. [From the Cincinnati Gazette.] The attack on Fort Sumter without any offense or injurious act on the prrt of its com mander, or of the Oovernment which directs him, has completed the record. For four montlis ete-y at t of aggression, of insult and insolence, has been done in . tho Secession States against the Oovernment and people of the American nation which enn be pns.-ih!y conceived, except the actual conflict ftf arms.
