" We have carried every branch of the State govern ment.

On the 17th of February a conflict took place by mistake between two columns of the'ltussian army. The ' Turkish posi tions are extended in an easterly direction as far as the village of Culpeacani, which is about pne mila distant from Kalafat. For several days past a Turkish corps, 4,000 strong, under the command of Col. Mirolai. had been posted in front of this village, and in the direction of the Russian outposts. On this corps the Russians de termined to make an onslaught during the night of the 16th. For this purpose two Russian columns were brought up, each from 4,000" to 5,000 strong one by the road that leads to Kalafat from the village oi scnoezi, and the . other the lelt side ol from about Poisna (Prince Milosch's ropeity,) to advance unexpected upon the Turks, to surprise, enclose them, and cut them to pieces. The Russian col umns commenced their march at three 'clock in the morning, and by four o'clock reached a position from whence thev were only a half an hour a march from lie iurkish pickets. The second col umn seems either to have missed the di rection by mistaking tho road, or to have come up long after its time. Be this as l may, the latter column, in the obscurity a toggv night, concluded the former one . to be a body of hostile ldrks, and instantly opened' upon there a terrific annonade, which the others, who labor d under the same mistake, returned with et more deadly effect. Pressing towards ach other it came ere long to a close fire of small arms. This ill-omened com- at lasted for an hour and a half, until day dawned, when the combatants saw with horror the error they had committed he loss in killed and wounded in the course of this night's encounter, is reck oneu, by the liussiaas themselves, - at several hundred.. The Turks were na turally alarmed at every point; and at VVidden, which is a league and a half distant, Omer Pacha, on hearing the can- nonaue, tooic. an the requisite measures for defence. The Turkish corps stationed at Cuipercedi stood to arms, in readiness for action at any moment, but did not ad vance as a was at a loss to imagine or comprehend what the"Russians were about murdering one another in that style. . was not till between 7 and 8 A. M., that the Russian columns withdrew-to their respective positions, carrying their woun ded comrades along with them.: , Small Notes of other States. The Cleveland Morning Lrader, in no ttcing the passage through the benate o Mr. Follett's bill to prohibit the circulation or foreign bank notes of other btates, mis leads its readers, when it says: the in tention of the bill is to cut off the circula tion of half the money in the State." - ihere is no such intention it will have no such effect - The intention is to brine money into tho State, and it will have that fleet. 1 he Reader labors under the Whig hallucination tiiat the unredeemable rags put forth by banks, are money, when in truth they are mere promises to pay mon ny; which promises are, as all know.bro ken without scruple, whenever the interest of the banker demands it. uliio is tilled 'with all sorts ot trash a currency, l he notes of our umo uanx are at a discount of from five to seven pe cent, m every city and town of. the btate other than that in which the bank issuing the notes, is located. When chartered the people were promised a currency ca pablo of being converted into gold and sil vcr, at the will of the holder.' How thi promise has been redeemed, the fact that one half the circulation, as admitted by th Leader is made up of the small notes other btates, shows that promises to pay are not the only promises made by bankers which fail of being redeemed. The small Bank notes of other States being the cheaper and the least valuabl currency, drives out; ol circulation th coin; and while there is at this moment more cold and-silver within the United States than there ever was in the country before, Ohio has less than sufficient of th precious metals to meet the ordinary wants of the public. The remedy is to drive out the baser currency, and to- nil the ohannel of - circulation with that currency : which knows no fluctuation, and "the mil of Mr. Follett, it passed into a law, will aid in the good work. Of course it will meet with the opposition of bankers and brokers, and the -fierce denunciation of their organs, but this was to be expected. -Stale Democrat,"1-' ; ' '"!'T ; " -: 1 r - Woman's Rights. - .: 1 We like women,of spunk that is, we like to read about 'em-i those standing up woinanfully for the 'doctrine of "fifty four forty or fight" whoput down their ! foot and "take no backward step" in fact, -' ' ' "Who know their 'rights, "" 'if-'- Aiid, knowing, dare maintain. . j - Such an one figured prominently on 'one of the trains on the Cin., Col. & Cleve land road, a few days since, as we learn by the Ohio City Express.

The Conductor, asked.-the woman if 'she would have, any objections to; having the window shut down, stating' to her the rea son.' She replied ' to him in a very im pertinent manner, and seemed determined to stand up for her rights. ; The Conduc tor pointed out another seat near ' by, that she might occupy if she wished to sit with a window up, and shut the window down, whereupon, feeling .'quite indignant - at his manner of proceeding; she drew back, and . with " her clenched list struck the pane of glass, shivering it to atoms.'

Dr. Bowring, the eminent Eastern trav eler, in a lecture lately delivered in Lon don, ou the eve of his departure for the Cast, took occasion to say that, in his opinion, the Emperor of Chin a was des tined to fulfil a great mission, by the emi gration that was now going on from thence throughout all the Eastern nations. , Such was tho over population of China, that there was not a foot of it scarcely but was cultivated. Such was the over-population, in fact, that notwithstanding the most vio lent interdicts against emigration, its many surplus streams were overflowing the coun tries of the East. , In the Island of. Java he found 25,000, in the Islands of the In dian Archipelago there were not less than 70,000; whilst in San Francisco there had been settled 25,000 more, and great num bers were emigrating to Australia, and the Islands - of Polynesia, or wherever there was a field of labor open to them. It ap peared to be a law of Providence that the superior races of mankind should supplant the inferior, and we saw in the progress of time tne -lnuaoitants of the West . India Islands swept away, that the Anglo-Saxon population waa invading :and removing (he would not say destroying) the red In dian tribes of America. - So the Chinese "race was setting aside the Malay i in the same way that they (the Malay's) had set aside the Dyaks. ; ; J: c.r .. ,.
