In the absence of our regular exchanges, from which to select the news of the past week; we have concluded to publish a tern- perance discussion in the Mouse of Rep resentatives, as being of some interest to bur readers. ? Daguerreotypes. Mr. G. W. Murphy has taken rooms at Dr J. L. Dye's, and is prepared to take likenesses for all those "who may desire them. . Give him a call. An- Early Adjournment. ;Ve ndo hope that the present General Assembly will adjourn at as early a day as a due regard to the business before it will permit. Now that the exciting ques tion as to who shall be U. S. Senator, is at test, we shall look with confidence for prompt action on the business before the Legislature. ' ' ' We notice that . some of. the members tare justifying the delay in the transaction tf business, on the ground that the annual reports of the State officers have not yet teen ; printed . and laid on their tables. Such an excuse is the veriest humbug im aginable as any information the standing committees need is easily attained by per sonal application to the State officers. VVhen such an exouse is put forward by a member, he may bo at once set down as In favor of a long session. , ; We also much desire that no extra ses sion be held by the present Legislature, ."the people are anxious to see the biennial feature of the constitution tried, and if it does not work well, there is a constitutional mode of changing it. We should not op pose m long session, nor even an extra ses sion, did we see anything in the condition of the affairs of the State absolutely de manding it. However, as there has been no move" in the Legislature, as yet, indi cating that an extra session will be . held, it may be said that our : remarks, at this time, are uncalled for. That may be true. Still we conceive that there is no wrong in expressing an opinion or desire relative (o the mattef. .. U. S. Senator. We , are without any information from f!nlumhii a In tha renull in caucus for U. S. Senator, except the following tele graphio dispatch, for which Dr. Sinclair has our thanks:; . .'V . , Columbus. March 4. J. R. Morris: Geo. E. Pogh, Senator. Ninth ballot 54 votes. i . H: ; . ' - W. T. Sinclair. A majority of our readers are, perhaps, familiar with 1 the. political reputation of Mr. Pogh. . He was elected a member of the House of Representatives from Hamil ton county in 1848 and again in 1849, and - although one of the youngest members in the Legislature, he won an enviable rep utation as a man ol decided talent. ' Dur ing the exciting debate on the question of the division of Hamilton county for Rep resentative purposes, he sustained himself in a manner. that placed him in a position Ana a( tha ablest nrobablv the ablest- debater in that body. On the adoption of the New Constitution, Mr. Pugh wasnom inated end elected Attorney General. At he Convention which nominated his suc cessor, he would have been renominated without opposition ' had he : not positively declined a re-election. As Attorney Gen- .eral he ranked with the ablest lawyers of the State. His election as U. S. Senator will be acceptable to the Democracy. . ; " ' ;;. Nebraska Bill.

Should any of our subscribers be at a loss how to send us money, the following copy of a letter, received by mail, a few days since, will serve as a model: Beallsville, Feb. 25, '54 Mr. Editor: Enclosed I send you a two-dollar bill. In return please send your paper as long as the money will pay for it, and perhaps I will have more to send you by that time. Direct to J. & VV. VV , Beallsville, Monroe County, O. Yours, truly, 1 VV VV That is the kind of a letter we like to receive. . Woman's Sphere. The Spirit of De mocracy, at Woodsfield, Monroe Co., O., announces the appointment of Mrs. Cath arine McMahon as Post Mistress at that place, in room of Mrs. West, resigned. Are the women particularly smart, or the men particularly gallant, in the borough of Woodsfield? Do women vote in that settlement? If not, why not? We copy the foregoing paragraph from the Columbus Columbian, and to the ques tions of the editor, we would answer that the women of our borough are "particular ly smart," and our men "particularly gal lant.' VVhy, Mr. Columbian, when one of our Post Mistresses takes it into her head to get married, we have, another lady appointed in her place; and this rule we do not expect to see violated, soon. So "particularly gallant" are our men, that although one was an applicant, after the resignation of Mrs. West, (now Mrs. Okey,) for the appointment, yet when he learned that the friends of Mrs. McMahon were seeking her appointment, he prompt ly declined in her favor although she is of a different political faith from the ad ministration if women can be said to have any political faith. "If not, why not?" The editor of the Columbian is informed that women do not "vole in this settle ment,", and the "why not" is because they are too "smart" to wish to travel out of their particular sphere. We wish wp could say as much for the women in oth er places. - OA number of subscribers have re quested us to publish the Wheeling Mar kets. This we would cheerfully do, and we long since -secured two daily papers, from that city, in exchange, in order that we might give reliable quotations of the markets; but we found upon examination that we could not depend upon either. For instance, in one of them we find the same quotations in the paper of March 3, as in that of Feb. 22. In the other, we find no markets at all. Fire. Mr. David Bonar, of Sunsbury township, had his house burnt on Saturday last, with considerable of his household furniture. No further particulars. Concert. There will be a Concert of Vocal Mu sic held by the; classes of Aaron Smith, teacher, at the Methodist Church, near Carrick's, on the 18th of March, 1854, to commence at 1 1 o'clock. The concert will also be continued in the evening of the same day. A lecture will be given on Vocal Music, commencing at half past 1 1 o'clock 1 he public are respectfully invited to attend.
