You state in the petition, thnt T had " let a large contract for building a bridge across Bean Creek, when there was a bridge suit' nble, convenient and safe to cross, which would answer for several years." You knew that you asseated a wilful falsehood, bv sta- ting that the bridge was " convenient and safe to cross;" tor you well knew, as well as tho public generally, that said bridge was rendered Utterly unfit and unsafe to cross, by the July freshet of 1844 in fact the west abutment Was so washed out, that the end of the bridge Lad fallen down near the water's edge, and you well knew it: Furthermore, at the time the contract was let, to build tlm new bridge, in September last, you were present, and expressed your entire approbation, not only of putting the bridge under contract, but of the expediency of having the bridgo finished I travelling community would be accommoda ted with a bridge to cross said creek. You slate furthermore, in said petition, that I have used Hie tunds ot sa;d road for my private purposes, as well as charged two clonals per iay lor my services, in tinswer to the two last mentioned charges, I assert, Judge Haymaker, that in making tli char ges, vou lied most foully in your throat; that you cannot prove either of the cliaiges with out committing perjury, and a! the time yon made them, you well knew th.it they were unfounded, as well as all oilier charges in your petition, making complaint against my officii) conduct as Road Commissioner. I leave you for the present, Judge Haymaker, to wallow in the slough of infamy, into which you have cast yourseif, iot da'iug to look nn honest man in tho fxe, without your con science telling you that you aro a debased scoundrel, and at n more convenient time I will most cheerfully attend to your case, to your full satisfaction. I am aware that in penning tho above, I liave been digressing from a strict sense of dignity, which every gentleman ought to sustain; or, in other words, that in noticing the insolent puppy, I nave stooped to reacu him. If I have cccmpl;shed my object, f.tid the lash has sufficiently applied, 1 risk of a generous public forgiveness for being caught in such ennpany. It was only with a view of having a road constnicled that I accepted of the office, not that I expected that the office would in any way benefit me more than any other citizen; and havo for two years performed the duties of Road Commissioner, of the Free Turnpike above alluded to, free of charges; and I defy any man to point to a single act in my cfiicial ' i.:-u .., !. :.. i:..,i- and for the benefit of the public shall so continue to discharge lb? same, until said road shall be completed, if I am suffered to V-vp. tlirnu'iiicj lin-ptc lhi iicicinnlffl nf llincA wiii-i inSy through any causs assail mo, into the ie(h of these from whence they came. In regard to ihe other gentlemen that signed the petitiou, I shall Isave them in the hands of a just people, to censure, condemn, or acquit, as they may deem proper. To those who have signed tho petition ignorant of its contents, I attribute no blame, only a word of advice, that in future it might ho well for thorn to ascertain and uiulerstind what they are about to subscribe to, kf:z signing their names. S. S. S PR AGUE. Deiiance, February 25, 1S-15. Hvrct'Kisv. The cant of tho fedcial newspapers about these days, with regard to removals from office, is trr.ly amusing. This lying fr.itcrnily before the election charged upon Mr. Folk every thing will) which a traitor to his country could be subject. His father and grandfather were represented as black hearted lories, nnd the derisive epi thet of " Old ZckeV was as pat in the mouth of a coon blackguard as was the Jack cf Spades in the hands of Mr. Cby; while Mr. Polk !;;rr.c!f was upbraided as tho tool of the old hero of the Heimitrge, and r.s one possessing no qualifications for the pre sidency. But now the tunc is changed, and the same hungry, cringing, fawning tools, Feck to obtain favor at tho hands of the man whom they have thus abused, and pray that their friends mr.y be suffered to retain ph.ee obtained by virtue of the hard cider cam jmign. Such sycophancy, and low, degra ding, selfish meanness is beneath contempt. We sincerely hope Mr. Polk will duly ap preoiate tho disinterested motives of these patriotic scoundrels, and reward them ad they best deserve. Wo admire the man who boldly advances and proclaims his opi nions, but scorn him who seeks, by fawn ing upon power to retain a place of trust within its gift. Such is the part only of a slave. Dayton Empire. Ant'SE of the Feank. We see by the Kentucky Yeornan that Mr. Clay claimed and received the franking privilege nearly two years after he ceased to be a Senator, upon the ground that he was entitled to it until the full term for which he had been elected expired. Mr, Critenden exercised the privilege from his election, and there fore during the last campaign three Senators from Kentucky, were franking electioneering documents and speeches, in utter violation of all law and every principle of justice. And yet, as if to screen this violation of the lajv by their great "embodiment," tho fede ralists tell us that Mr. Clay's postage bill Jast year was $10,000. Oh! Roarback. Western Empire. Fire.

The rays of the genial sun the opening flowers the melody of the forest songsters, and tho tomptations of the ball alley, render us too poetic for writing editorial. The great puzzle. To the uninitiated among t.ie wings, as well as among the democrats, the Bank echemo of Kelley and FaM!INjton appears to be tho most ingenious puzzlo of tho 19th cen tury. A writer in the Cleveland (whig) Herald suggests " tho getting up a commentary on this law, like' Story on the Constitution.' " Ho thinks tho work " need not exceed seven volumes of COO pages each;" and that "our whig legislators would probably become liberal subscribers to the work." This is on excellent hit at (he stupid coens in Ihe legislature who " went it blind" un der tho It-ad of Ar.rr.ED Kshav. Another writer in tho eamo paper acknowledg es himself very essentially nonplused in his efforts lo " get inlo common sense English" the G2d section, He suggests that " some boy be put in to a mesmeric sleep and let us know what the compiler of that section meant." These ominous mysteries and puzzles will soon be solved. Timo will soon simplify them to the understanding of every democrat and whi;r in Ohio who has a pocket to foil. We suggest the following interpretation of ibolaw, for tho benefit of those enquir ing and simple koons who profess to be so utterly in tho dark : Be it enacted hit Hie Ccneral Assembly of Ihe Stale of Ohio, That Kin;' Kelley, Prince Farrin ton, and thcofliccrs of the Ohio Life insurance ami irust Ooinpany, aro hereby created a body politic and corporate, and declared to lie released from all those obligations, which, as citizens, thny owe tho Slate.

Metcalf, Scc'ry. From the Globe. Mr, Wcftstci tsciisioascd as a. Senator by Federalism cf flieRostoii stamp; that "tEec Monsier, Parly Spirit, lainy lie crippled or crushed!" Wo copy this paragraph from the Philadel phia Public Ledger: " Mr. Webster will enter the United States Senate with tho intention of devoting his timo to the office. Ho has been rendered easy in his pecuniary affairs by the action of his petsoUr. f:in?? in B9s;ou. One hun dred thousand dollars havo been settled or. his family by a gift from a number of wealthy persons there, who chose fo take that means of placing Mr. Webslor in an easy position. As it is an afliiir between the givers and receiver, we have nothing particular to say, except this: it is certainly an unusual thing for our public men, of capacity lo support themselves and acquire wealth, to accept of such gifts. " In regard to the course of Mr. Webster and his friends in the Senate, it is under stood that they will give all possible support to the administi'alicr. of Sir. Folic IIg;ivc:; send it so; and may the monster, party spirit, be crippled or crushed." Tho tariff men of Boston have given this hundred thousand dollars to Mr. Webster as a senatorial retainer, to advocate, for the six years to come, the policy by which they make millions for his thousands. The hundred thousand dollars i3 not one per cent, on the gains they calculate on out of tho present tariff. But may not liicso kssu financiers miscalculate, like Mr. Biddle? This gen tleman's retainers to tho bank's attorney in ihe Senate of the United States wore great er than that now advanced by tariff' monopo list, and secured tho untiring labors of this god-like fee taker, during the prime of his life. But what was the result to tho bank stockholders, and the great bank manager? A total loss of the stock of the first, and the ruin of the reputation of the last. It may be however, that the admirable manner in which he acquitted himself in a more recent employment when, under the auspices of another great banker, he cut a slice out of Maino a hundred and ten miles deeper than tho most encroaching monooo lizing broker among the nations ever before Had the f;ico lo insist on has increased the confidence of our tariff monopolists in thi political factor. And we may fairly suppose mat no is commissioned to use. in tho ellec- tuation of the designs of iiis employers, tho samo appliances wlncli they have used on nun. jr nowavor, they supnoso that " the monster parti) spirit" in this country, which opposes itself to taxation Jor monopoly, is to oe " crumca or crippled11 by such means. or suuu u man, tney win, in otic tune, nave the experience which enlightened Mr.Eid-d! to enlighten them, in recard to the patriotism anu probity ot the national councils. The inlianious conduct of the Whig jorsly in the Senate. The bill to re-district tho Slate for repre sentation in Congress, camo up in tho Se nate m tlio afternoon of veslerdav. Tho in famy of the measure was exposed by a num ber oi tlio democratic benators; and tho conduct of the whir members durina the scussioii, was disorderly and insultin;' in tho extreme. Alfred Kelley mid his crea tures disturbed tho Senate by loud talking, aligning, sneering and moving about, when c democratic benators were addressing the Senate. Such insulting and disorderly con- uct on the part ot a nuionty in either ranch of tho Legislature of this State ne ver before disgraced tlio free government of til's bliitc. Allied and his tools with insult ing insolence, exulted in this reckless net of tyrr.nny, whilo trampling on the established institutions of tho State, until they so dis gusted a portion of tho members, that when tho vole was taken they sat still in their seals, and did not vote when their names was called. And no one could havo been pre sent and witnessed this disgusting scene of insolence on the pirt of a few petty tyrants, rioting in the brief authority obtained by ac cident, and thought strange that some of tho democratic members, for tho time being dis gusted and astounded by tho baso atrocity and Vandal recklcssncs, with which our in stitutions aro thus broken, up, should lcVe even declined p:ntic;pr,uiig by even forming a part ot tho quorum which voted on, and passd tills nefarious act of perfidy and out rage. And because some of the democrat ic Senators, outraged by the infamous and insolent conduct of the majority, declined to vote and constitute a part of the quorum, a majority of which was liorpctratiii" the deed of infamy, 'Alfred Kelly and some of his creatures became very much disturbed; when he was apprehensive at one time that a quorum was not voting he jumped up and said " well, well, Mr. Speaker, it makes no difference1, if there be a quorum present the bill can pass even although a quorum docs not vote." And immediately one of Kelley's fioaturcs ot uo and offered a resolution, pending the bill, and of course out of order, requiring Ihe fact lo be slated on the Jour nal, that some members present had not voted, and the resolution was adopted. The Senators who did not vote, acted with no concerted understanding; but outraged by the infamous conduct ot the majority, de clined to become a party, by voting, to the quorum a majority of which did the deed. Had the whig party been m the minority, and the democratic parly attempted such an act of tyranny, the whigs would have form ed a conspiracy and absquatulated, and de stroyed lliO Lyich'ive branch of the go vernment, as they did on a certain former occasion. When the wins members absquat ulated, they met in secret caucus, and form ed a conspiracy to dissolve tho Legislature by a simultaneous resignation, and leaving it without a constitutional quorum. It was a concerted conspiracy against the sovereignty of the Slate, and a violent dissolution of the government by representatives sworn to sup port the constitution. Ohio Statesman.

The advocates of a rag currency would do well to rein up a short time in their mad career, and read and reflect over tho contents of tho letter below, from ono who is truly sly led the Father of his Country.

It would have b??n far better for tho country if ita ru lers had been guided, upon this question, by the views of that great and goou man, as ex pressed m this letter.

"Deak Sir: Your favor of the 30lh ul timo camo duly safe to hand. To give an opinion in a cause of so much importance as that which has warmly agitated the two branches of your Legislature, and which, from the appeal that is made, is likely to cre ate great and perhaps dangerous divisions, is rather a delicate matter; but, as this diversi ty of opinion is on a subject which has, I believe, occupied the minds of most men, and as my sentiments thereon have been ful ly and dacidedly expressed long before the Assembly either of Maryland or this State was convened, I do not scruple to declare, that, if I had a voice in your Legislature, it would have been givon decidedly against a paper emission upon the general principles of its utility as a representative, and tho ne cessity of it as a medium. " To assign reasons for this opinion would be as unnecessary as tedious. Tho ground has been so often trod, that a place hardly remains untouched. In a word, the neces sity arising from a want of spscio is repre sented as greater than it really is. I con tend, that it is by the'substance, not the sha dow of a thing, we aro to bo benefitted. Tho wisdom of man, in my humble opinion, cannot at this time devise a plan, by which tho credit of paper money would bo long supported; consequently depreciation keeps pace with tho qfuintily of the -Cmisjion, and articles, for which it is exchanged, riso in a greater ratio than the sinking value of the money. Wherein, then, is the farmer, the planter, the arlizan benefitted? The debtor may be, because, as I have observed, h gives the shadow in lieu of the substance and, in proportion to his gain, (he creditor or the body politic suffers. Whether it bo ; legal tender or not, it will, as has been ob served very truly, leave no alternative. must be that or nothing. An evil equally great is, the door it immediately opens for speculation, by winch the least designing. and perhaps most valuable, part of commun ny are preyed upon by the moro knowin and crafty speculators. lJut, contrary to my intention and do claration, I am offering reasons in support o my opinion; reasons too, which of all others are least pleasing to tho advocate for pape money. x am, dear sir, &c, GEO.
