a
A cot i iiiporary speuking of the C. & M.
Rail Rood says:
"It will never be finished. It Inn no mou
"ey and cannot raise any, and if finished
"wooM have nothing lo du."
Now many person may look at this in the
j light of prophecy, and consider it true us gos-
duI, but the writer gives no remap for hie
opinion. He says the road will never be fin
ished but says never a word about it pres
ent prospect. How doe he know! Who
hus told him that the road will nevir be com
pleted' Without giving It aa our opinion that the
mad will or will not be built, we will merely
give, so far as we knew, its arowpaeU. Ths
whole line of (he '"ad, is about one hundred
mitas; of this distance about forty miles or
two-Jifths of the entire line is ready for laying
down tho ruils. This much is done, and the
road is entirely out of debt, audits prospects
for liberal subscriptions along the line are
very good. Doing out f debt ia a favorable
omen, fur it is what cannot be nid of all
roa J In thii part of the world.
"It has no money, and ca mint raise any,"
quoth he. This iaustuiuing a great deal, we
opine. Who has Infurn.ed him it can get no
money! Has he been traversing the rich
section o! country through which it is to
pus: gone through the prolific farina, in Bel-
mon t, Harrison, Tuscarawas, At
Coshucton,
whose owner ure tube benefitted by the
road! Has be a i! tu them how much are
you intruding to give to complete this roud
to the Ohi river; which road when cunplo-
led will bring you within few hour travel
oflbe best market lo the world! Ha be
done this) If he hts then can lie presume to
speak as he doe of the prospect of the road
and not otherwise.
"If it is finithtd it would 1 av nothing
do." Now this 1 venturing beyond the
bound of human credulity, lie can aay
bat no money it rennet raise any, and can
iitTtr bt buUt, aid he will havt bslltvru

It it a cclleh policy that prompts a man
snd mere particularly an editor who should,
of all others, be. cosmopolitan, to shut his
eyes to every (hi ng but his own locality and
his own interest. It reminds us forcibly of
the old illustration; A man who imagines
that his particular locality comprises all that
is useful and beautiful in life, is like boy
who thinks his father's garden Is the world,
becatiso ho is not tn II enough to see over ths

Orln privute letter we have received
from friend at Morne Rouge in the Island
(of Martinique,. we extract .the following:
''We thought e should begone before
this, but Mr. de M ie very busy; he is I
''allowing the Inhabitants how to make some I
"improvements, and trying to give them soma
"notions ot American enterprise. They all
"call him the V anhce, and lit tells them he it
.-proud of the Hilt.''
Mr. de M ie n intelligent French
man who wos compelled to flee from France
on account of political troubles, and seek a
I refuge on this continent. While here he
busied h! mself in studying the various 'public
works, anj marks of Ameri can enterprise and
geuiua. It was then we became acquainted
with him in Wheeling. -About two years
ago, through the influence ef relative at
Paris, who ia also a relative of the Emperor,
Louis Napoleon, he received an appointmert
Irom tho French government. to the Isle of
Martinique, where he now is. The ab jvo
extract from a letter Irom a member of his
family shows the feeling he euiertaini for
America.
In a former letter we find the following:
"How much ajorew would rrjoije in
"being in the truo land of liberty, your dear,
"glorious country that I now acknowledge
to be the beat yes, I say, and
"so does we huve tasted that Frce
"d in that will prohub.ly lead us back silme
i "day to America."
Thii, loo, from the nobility.who in France
were wont to regard themselves as above the
common main, by birth, and fortune.
God bless thce,drnr friend, and may a kind
Providence hasten you and yours back to
bur shores, and fear not but we will moot
you with open arms and warm hearts, and
1 welcome you to our hoine,our commonwealth
and our country.

Locofocoism in Ohio "reols to an fro, and

It looks upon -ths surface to be a simple
matter to turn over a newspaper from one
proprietor to another, and ordinarily it is;
i but in this instanco it amounts to an admis
sion that the party ia about to tak i the back
track, for the Stutemnan has ever been the
mouth-piece of the Locufoco party. Meda-
k y with his iron will, his despotic arm, had
rendered himself so obnoxious to many of
his purtizuiis, that his position was only to
betnaiutuined by battling hie own political
friends; hence it wus deemed necessary to
commit the leadership toother hands. The
experiment was tried; and now, instead of a
portion of I lie party being in rebellion, (he
whole party is disorganized and split into
fragments. MxUAltr cannot save it. His
withdrawal, insteasl ofaealing old sore, has
opened now and deep Vnes.and too lutein

ead"for decrepid, tottering, Ohio Locofoco
ism; the, taint of abject aubserviency to
Southern masters, and the crushing blight
of intolerable taxation and Jacobinism in
Suite policy, are too deep to be eradicated
and spare life. The people have willed that
the party now in power in Ohio a party
which h"S driven millions of capital from
her borders, and thousands of her 'ost citi
zens from herbioad acres shall be trodden
under foot, and all Ilia talent, uhrewdnuss,
nerve and diplomacy of Col. Mkdary cauu it

We welcome the "Neator'of Democracy"

party on it feetaguin and leading it forth
to conquer, he will find that the sceptre-has

Suicide of Green.
The murderer , Green, tried and convicted
in Chicago for tho murder of hi wife, and to
whom a new trial had been granted, went
very methodically to work to hang himself.
Some ten days ago he made his will, hut up
to tho time his body was discovered dead .in
the cell, did nothing to excite suspicion that
he intended to cemmit suicide. The method
adopted to end life i thus described by the
Press.
"A wrapper had been torn into atrip to
form a sort of rope, which was fastened to an
iron bar running trausversely along theplauk
lining of ihe call, near the ceiling; to this
wa attached two towel tied together; and
to these a silk handkerchie.' folded tightly
and bound every few, inches with twine, to
give it moro the firmoei of a rope, wusied.
Thus prepared, he had appsrenlly mounted
upon a light stand in lb cell, adjusted the
handkerchief around hi neck, and leaping
from the aland, h linii. j.dij), hi feet
being about two foet Irom Ihe floor. His
hand appeared to have been bound behind

aa a airing wa attached to one of hi wrist.

part of this State, and afterward removed to
Cincinnoti, wl ere heemained and continued
the drsctico until the commencement of tho
War with Mexico, when, being unanimously
elected Captain of the 1st Rifle Company of
the 1st Regiment of Ohio Volunteers, he ser
ved' in that capacity for ' the term of one
year, in consequence of hardships, incident
to the campaign, he contracted tho disease
which finally terminated hi existence. At
th expiration of hi term he lo ated in Mt,
Vernon, where he had aince continued the
practice of medicine. But the exposure and
fatigue which unovoidably . belong to physi
cian's life, were toe much for hi Impaired
constitution, and In the midst of an unusually
active and Jnborioua business, during tho au- '
lumn and winter of 1853-54, hi health gave
way with a return of his old disease rheu
matism. Hi health continued feeble durins;
the past year, and fie determined to try a
short residence in a warmer elimate, hoping
that it would restore his health. According
ly, on the 11th of December he bade fare
well to his home and hn family, expecting
in a lew months to return with renewed
health and vigor. But God had not so deter
mined. On his way down fie river the Doc
tor contracted a severe cold in his head, and
immediately on hi arrival rat Thibodeaua
was seized with a violent attack of acute
rneumaiism, winch being transferred to hi
brain, in a few days ended his earthly careei.
Heavily ha this tad bereavement fallen
upon his friends, without any warning of tho
approaching event. No ;pen can describe
their agony, no human sympathy afford relief.
May He, who alone can strengthen the weak
strengthen and comfort them, aa He can
cmfort the sorrowing. .
Though, at the close of hi life, he wat In
a strange land, he mtt with ardent friends:
and they, with kindness and hospitality which
is such a prominent characteristic of the peo

ley ana calm the bi lows of Jordan. Death
was but his passage to that fair clime, where
there are no chilling w inds, no fading, no
sickness, and no parting the tearless and
iphleesj homo of the blest.
Dr. Ramsey was a scientific and thorough,
ly read phl siciah; and a.skillfnl and remarka
bly successful practitioner. He was most
unwearied In Lis attention and'dsvotion to his
ptuie.its, and long will his services be grate
fully remembered by them. His reelings were
delicate, even to (entinine tenderness, and
often has his bright smile illumined the dar
kened chamber of sickness and inspired with
new life the desponding patient.
He was a man uf the most unblemished in
tegrity, firm, andVnucious of what he be
lieved to be right, of unshoken morol cour
oge, and the nicest sense of honor. Ho was

the impulse of hi vigorous intellect, and
warm heart. His disposition was remarka

Durirg the last year of his life he give un

took great, delight in the itudy of the Bible
and religious conversation. He thought
much of death, and his confidence waa in
Christ; He wus his hope and his refuge.
Solemnly he had dedicated himulf to God,
fortune and eternity, and wai only prevented
from making a public profession of religion
by sickness, which confinea him to his room
on the day appointed for receiving him into
the Church and he left home with the de.

his pilgrimage ended without affording him

giving. General Scott $30,000 for devoting
forty year of hi life to the service ef bie
