'' ; This," td some oi pur readers,' may appear an iihnapMApw niMilinfii! hu mm iinflprafanu thai .!' """T vv" .j iiwbfiivu), - .. Tj many of lh citizens ot our rounty are not aware that Mr. Armstrong ceased to 'be the senator for ' Monroe county ', on the; passage of the Jaw to fix and apportion, the representation of the General J Assembly of the Plate of Ohio; passed March 12, "1844. By that taw the counties 'of Guernsey and f Coshocton were constituted a senatorial district. I.Mr, Armstrong, residing in Guernsey county, t became of1 course, the Senator of these two coun ties.1 "Too counties of Monroe and Belmont were constituted , si senatorial district, in consequence r whereof, Mr. Mjller, of Belmont, sleeted by the V counties ol Belmont and Harrison in 1843, became " the senatorial .representative of Monroe and Bel monfc' ;t .' : ; i-.-i. ,r, - A u , Harrison and Jefferson were constituted a sen atonal district. In tins district, a senator was elected last October, who resides in Harrison coun - ty; Mr. - Miller, therefore, does not represent - Harrison. If ha did, that county would he rep resented by two senators at the same time. It follows, then, that the senators who held over do i not represent the districts in which they were ' elected In October, 1843, but represent the district in which they reside, as constituted by the appor . jtionment law of 1844. i Col. R. H. Millbr is, therelore, the proper ' senatorial representative of Monroe county, during the present session; and he is, we understand, , fully aware of this, and has governed himself accordingly. ; jUi ' TEXAS AND MEXICO. We have no additional news from these coun tries, except the news by way of New Orleans, which is merely confirmatory of the news publish ed last week. . ', ' '., .', , f THE BANK BILL. ' : The great monster batik bill introduced into the Senate of this State by Mr. Kelly is too lengthy for insertion in our paper. , It is a bill of seventy .three sections, and is entitled, "A bill to incorpo- rate the State Bank of Ohio, and other banking companies;" and occupies eight closely printed ' columns of the Ohio Statesman. We (have not read it, neither shall we, unless it becomes the law of the land. We would as soon undertake to read' a volume of Capt. Basil Hall's "Frogmen's of Voyages and Travels." If, however, this bill should pas both1 branches of the legislature wc shall then publish it. , ' '.' , . We copy the following in relation to this bank monster from the Ohio Statesman : : ' ' ) . . . .i ' 'In that portion, under the head of, ".In relation to the Slate Bank of Ohio," there is a "Safety Fund" provision, worthy of the age of financial gulling: The 21st section, requiring a ten per cent. payment on the bills or notes received, by the bankers for circulation reads as follows: - " 'Sec. 21. Before (he board of control shall de liver to any branch, notes for circulation, they shall requite such branch to pay ovrr or deposit to credit of said board, as said board shall order, either in money or in certificates of the stocks of his state, at their current value in the city ot . York, but in no instance above their par value, an amount equal to ten per tent, on the amount of the note lor circulation which shall be delivered to said branch. And so, from time to time, as any branch may, by the paying in of an aJlitional amount1 of its capital stock, nr by not having received- the amount of t.otes (or '-circulation to which it was' previously entitled, be authorized to demand an additional amount of holes lor circulation, such branch shall deposit with the board of control, ten per cent, on the amount of notes so required; and the stocks and money so deposited, shall be denominated the ' Safety Fund,' and shall be invested as hereinafter prescribed, and held by the board of control as the property of said board in trust lor tne oeneni or ine several branches of the Slate Bank of Ohio, and as a fund for the redemption ol the notes of circulation of m i , .1 . . C'.X ... any one or more oi saiu nrancnes mm may m redeem its notes to be applied to that purpose in the manner pointed out by this act. - - Somuch for the 21st section of this monster of "seven heads and ten horns;" but mark the next the 22d section which is the "hereinafter described" manner of doing business. The finger of the Trust Company is seen in every line, though darkly hidden from public view. Here it is : ' "'See 22.,s All money so deposited or paid to the board of control on account of the safety fund by any branch, shall be under the direction of said board, invested either in the stocks of the State, or ia the bonds secured by mortgages on unincum bered real estate, situate in the county where such branch is located, or in adjoining counties, of at ' least twice the value in each case, of the amount received thereby, exclusive of buildings or other fixtures subject to be destroyed by fire, by floods other accidental occurrence, or ol timber, mines or minerals, subiect to waste, which bonds shall 'be made payable on demand to the State Bank of Ohio, and shall bear sucn rate oi interest as snau be agreed on by the parties not exceeding seven per eect per annum, payable semi-annually. - And each branch shall be entitled to receive the inter est accruing on the stocks or bonds in which its portion of the safety fund shall have been invested. And in case of the insolvency of any branch, the lock' and bonds in which the money of such branch shall have been invested as aforesaid, if the proceeds of such stock and bonds shall be sufficient to redeem its outstanding1 notes- of circulation, shall, it practicable, be first converted into money, and applied to that purpose, before any part of the safety fund belonging tot other branches, shall be so applied. , ' , ., , "It must not'be'forgotten that Governor Morde cai Bartley, has been denounced in all parts of the country, for the real estate security part of his message, and hence every one must be surprised that this bill introduced the real estate feature; for very body knows that the investment of this ten per cent, in bonds, amounts to paving it in bonds. The 21st section says the ted per cent shall be pa')d in. "money, (not specie,) or certificate of State stocks;" but the 22itd section says that the money' so deposited, shall be under the direction if laid board" '(of directors,) "invested either in the stocks of the State, or m bond secured ty murtgoges on unincumbered real esia'e." . Re collect tint the board of directors have the exclu iv control o this natter. Rscollect, ajap that the board' it well ''seasoned with Trust Company tnenjf (not a democrat on to watch their doings,) and recollect also that these bonds are to be, not exceeding, oh! dearl ,sen per cent.t i The very interest which is paid on all the Trust Company bonds now' field by that institution,, and ready for the market as investments under this bill Have we not here a'developement of as pretty a scheme of cunning as ever graced the legislative halls of any State.; " ;)- A':' 17 ''.. M i "The, Trust Company under this 22d section, stands ready not only to lurnishreal estate bonds as a Safety Fund, for its own amount of circula tion, but can furnish bonds for all the others. The trade in Ohio Life, and Trust Company bonds would eclipse altogether the trade in Ohio State locks.' A' more selfish. CUoning,' underhanded trick, to blind the eyes of legislators for the ag grandizement of an overgrown company could not have been devised., , We hope it will be thorough ly probed and exposed to public gaze, by senators who are yet free enough to defend the interests and liberties of the j eople It should be lield up in all its deformity, as a warning to the people, to beware in future how they trust power in the hands ol mer. guided only by their own interest and selfishness.' ' Men deeply interested in specu lative corporations, are not proper depositories of the power of the people and we have long warn ed the people of the great danger they were in, by putting forward as leaders men whose actions were biased by ether motives than the public good we have exposed agaiu and again, the common practice of the whigs, in going into banks ai.d corporate establishmects for candidates, instead of selecting from the independent, laboring, farming and business ' interests, from whom less danger might be apprehended, even from the whigs, though taught in a bad school. , From the Cin.

Fremont, under the direction of the War Department, is one of the most daring among modern travelers. It was not merely and expedition to Oregon, but it was the crossing of the great North American Andes, in themid-tof winter, a feat far exceeding the pas sage of the Alps, by the ancient or modem war riors. '-. ! In the annual report of the Topographical De partment there is a brief sketch of this journey. It has none of its romance, but contains an outline of what was done, which may be enough to excite an interest in the narrative, which we hope Lt. Fre monl will hereafter give the public. . This officer left Westport, Missouri, on the 1st of June, 1843. His route from there was first to the mouth f the Kanzas, thence up that stream to the Republican Fork, which was pursued to Long's Peak.. This with two other lofty summits; are spurs or shoots from the gigantic range of the Rocky Mountains. Long's Peak ii called from Col. Long, now of the U. S. Topographical Corps, who was at the head of the most important and advantage us exploring expedition which had visited that country since the day of Lewis and Clark. This peak is erroneously stated in the Tnp- ogiaphical report, and erroneously printed in the maps, at 12,500 feet in height. Its real height is 15,000 feet. . This we have from Col. Long him self, who surveyed it. The head of the peak, with those of its giant neighbors, rues above the regions of perpetual snow, and (heir frozen brows defy (he melting rays of (he warmest sun. . Here Lt. Fre mont arrived on the 4th of July. On the 14th he was at the Arkansas river, at ho mouth of Fon taine qui buoit. He crossed the mountains at (he South West Pass, and descended into the valley of the Mexican Colorado. This is one ot the most remarkable spbts on earth. Here, at an angle formed by the'line dividing Mexico from the United States, and tie head waters of the Ark an sas, in the midst of the Northern Andes, are the fountain spring) and branches of some of the great est rivers in the world. Not far from each other are the head waters of the Yellow Stone, which flows in the far rolling Missouri; the Arkansas', which joins the mighty Mississippi, Lewis' river flowing into the Columbia, and the Colorado of Mexico, rolling its waters into the Southern Pa cific ! With barren plains on one side, vast ranges of mountains on the other, and frozen summits above, the traveler here coi. templates the geogra phical key of the North American Continent. ' On the 3d of September, Lt. Fremont reached the great Salt Lake of Notheru Mexico, and spent a week in surveying it On the 18th of Septem ber he reached Fort Hall; and on the 2(Stli of Oc tober, Fort Nex Perces. Oa the4th ofNovember, he was at the Missionary Station of Dallas on the Columbia. - This was the northern termination ol his Journey on-the territory of the United States. Oii the 2fith of November he commenced the bold project of returning amidst the severities of winter. There was then a heavy fall of snow, and the ther mometer was 2 deg. below zero. In the course of a few days he found himself between the river JJux Chute and the Cascade mountains. Here vast parallel ranges ol mountains continued to run southward, . and he continued to traverse .their western has j till on the 10th of December he was at Hamatti Lake. This was probably about the 43 deg. of north latitude and 42 deg. of west longi tude from Washington. This was a region of great, discovery and extraordinary interest. His animals, were, however, entirely worn down, and there was no prospect of getting east. ' He then determined to cross Jhe Sierra Merida', or great Cal ifornia mountains, which lay between him and the Bay of San Francisco. He did; and the cold month of February was consumed in crossing the snows ol these lofty mountains. 1 hese snows . were from five to twenty feet deep! Early iu March he dese ruled from icy regions to the perpetual spring of the Valley of the Sacramento. By the Mexi cans he was received and treated with great hos pitality. At the end of March be proceeded up the valley of the Joaquim river, re-crr.ssing the Sierra at a very beautiful pass to the South. . On the 21st of April last, he took the Spanish road from Pue blos de los Angelos to Santa Fe. i Arrived at the Colorado, be proceeded north-east, passed the Euta Lake, and encamped at Brown's Hole, June 6th, 1844. Crossing the Colorado, he again passed the Rocky Mountains, and proceeded to the north fork of the Nebraska. On the 80th of June he was on the Arkansas; on ' the 2d of July reached Brent's Fort, and on the 31st of July returned to the mouth of the Kansas river. ., n ;-.-. ! Such ia an outline of one of the longest and most adventurous explorations of our time. 'Thai part of the expedition which relates to the passage of tb CalifbruU mountains, -(be return to the Col-1 orado, and the survey of that river,' must have pe Lculiar interest, and will be new to" the public mind. The Government deserves credit for the seal with which It has pursued Geographical discovery. '. CO", The Cleveland Herald , has the following article on sheep slaughtering., .The ridding the Country of such sheep should be a matter of gen eral rejoicing. St itttman. " ", " " SHEEP SLAUGHTERING. . ', .! There is an unusual destruction of this peacea ble and useful quadruped going on in Ohio the present winter. ' There are several slaughtering establishments in the State, at some of which sheep are literally used up with' the rapidity and skill of the Cincinnatians in pork-ology, as any one will learn who takes the trouble' to witness opera tions at the slaughter-house of Col. N. M. Stand art in Brot'klin. Some 15,000 sheep have been killed at the establishment this winter, and about 5,000 more are to be slaughtered. So convenient and well arranged are the works; that 400 sheep are killed per day, every part of the animal heing converted into use.' The carcasses are thrown into four large tubs or boilers and the tallow ren dered from them by steam, and the process is so complete that after steaming about 40 hours the pure tallow is drawn pff into vats or coolers, the bones, flesh, fcci'iiito large vats for hog feed the hams are nicely cut up and saved and pay the expenses of slaughtering the pelts are dried for market and the heads thrown into a pile and the wool picked from them, when they are carted to the hog-field and will be plowed in next spring to decompose and enrich the soil. About 300 hogs are fattening on the boiled flesh and offal of the establishment, and doing well. The sheep have principally been purchased in Cuyahoga, Summit, .Medina, Stark, Wayne, Knox, and Holmes counties, generally of the common breeds, at prices ranging from 50 cents to $1,25 per head. Ii is to be hoped their places wi.l be supplied with improved breeds, and they will be. no doubt, in many instances. , Although the win - ter is considerably advanced, Col. S. informed us ' that 10,000 sheep could now be purchased in the counties named above, about 25 cents ahead cheaper than the prices paid in the fall. BALTIMORE MARKET.

S..AVM.-AI an exami-; r.oe county, Ohio, at the next term, praying that nation at the Police Office in New York, some very singular disclosures were made respecting an ! insurrection which was contemplated in Princess i Anne county Virginia, aiming the slaves. The , particulrrs, as given in the New Yoik Sun, are as follows: Baltimore S'n. , "A colored man, named George D. Morse, of No. 241 Houston Street, who lives by working in stores in the lower part of the city, having received information, as he states, that an inurrection of the colored population was to be carried into effect about Christmas and New Year, lo murder indis criminately the white men, women and children of Princess Anne county, Virginia, including Nor folk, and also all the colored people who would nut join Ihem and having near relations there, wrote on to a Justice of the Peace in that county, I named Corprewn, informing him of what he had' heard. He also informed him that a colored man ! named Willis Hodge who bad been the correspon-1 dent in this city of the colored couspirators of Pi in- . cess Anne and had encouaaged the proceeding, had gone on lo Virginia, to aid in maturing the plot ' and lo carry it into execution, who was thereupon arrested and lodged in prison, where he will re main, and until the matter can be fully investigated will continue' in custody. Others had been arrest- ed but had been discharged. The colored people LA . i, ... "i.i. .i . . . . . r here, who were neighbors and acquaintances of Morse, having heard of his having given informa tion to the authorities of the south, that had led to the arrest of Willis Hodge, swore to be revenged upon him and threatened to put him to death. They also swore that he should not come down town to his work, and ifhe did, that be should not be suffered to work there any more. . Under these threats, Morse, who is an intelligent colored man, went to ihe upper police office and preferred his complaint against Jeremiah Simmons Samuel Fin ney, Jeffry Overion, and William Wales, all col ored, who were arrested by officers ' Bush, Law rence and Sbong. and to day held to unexception able bail in 8300 each, by Justice Taylor, to keep the peace towards G. D.
