JapanReported Treaty with, the

Hong Kong, April I2Ui, 1854.
The mail of the ;24tlt of February is
overdue, and the oatwerd steamer has
been detained 24 hours, as Dr. Boring is
expected to bea pasaenges in the one to
arrive.
The- most prominent and interesting in
telligence we have to communicate by
this- mail U the authentic accounts of the
successful negotiations of his Excellency
Commodore terry, of the United States
Navy, in Japan; and there is reason for
believing that we may shortly have par
ticulars of the treaty and the ports to be
opened, as on the 27th of March Com
modore Perry was to have a grand meet-
ins near Jed Jo with the Princess and
Ministers of the Emperor of Japan, ap
pointed, i( is said, for the consideration
and conclusion, and rrioet probably the
ratification of the treaty.
- From all we learn, there can be no
doubt that Jpa will be opened to all
nations, and; each have the faculty of
making a treaty. I he United States ship
Saratoga was to be despatched soon after
the 27th for Panama to convey the im
portant news to Washington.
The United States steamer Susquehanna.
arrived here on the 25th ult., and is to be
held at the service of the United States
Commissioner, Mr. M'Laine.
' The ports selected are said to be Ozaka
35 dea. 45 min. north latitude and 135
deg. 26 min. longitude, Matsmaj, in the
Straits of Sangan.
' The Emperor of Japan was dead. A
very old man,' but a new Emperor was
enthroned.
. The report given by the Russian Ad
miral of having made a treaty with the
hmperor, turns out to be unfounded.

arrange the plan of the ensuing campaign.
1 he tall ol fcilistna was looked lor Irom
ay to day, but no reliable dispatches had
been received later than of date 21st.
On the slock exchanges it was freely
stated for some davs, that the Russians
had carried the fortress by storm with a
oss of 1500 killed, but the statement was
untrue. - A series of engagements were
fought below Basardschik, on the 12ih.
1 3th, 14th and ' 15th May, between the
Russians under' Gen. Grothenjelin and
the Turks under Ismail Pasha, the latter
falling back on Paravady, and thus en
bung the Russians to invest Sihstna.
On May 21st a fierce attack was made on
the outworks of Silistria, which face the
anube, but the result is not known.
The correspondent of the London Daily
News says that after some partial suo-
cesses tne; Kussians met with ,a severe
repulse on the 2 1st of May. X)n 13th

The Baltic Tlia Paris Moniteur pub
ishes a telegraphic dispatch dated Co
penhagen, evening, Saturday 28th, stating
that three lsntish steam frigates had de
roved the detached forts at llango, with
the loss of only three English, and a few
wounded. the loss of the Russians was
considerable. On 23d, Admiral Napier
was off llango, and was about to attack
le principal fortress.

On the 11th,. the Turkish Heet. under
Achmet, Admiral Pasha, with Vice Ad
miral Slade, was off Varna, on its 'way to
communicate with Admiral Dundas, and
afterwards to proceed to the coast of Cir-
cassia. ' The three British steamships, un

fleet on the 5th instant, to cruise oft the
Circassian coast, had returned with in
elligence that the Russians have abandon
d all their forts, as already published.

Democratic State Ticket for 1854.
FOR SUPREME JUDGE,
SKEPARD F. NORRIS,
Of Clermont County.
MEMBER OF THE BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS,
ALEXANDER P. MILLER,
. - - Of Butler County.
07 lion. W. Shannon will please ac
cept our thanks for a copy of the Statis
tics of the United States Census, 1850,"
and other valuable documents.
07" After a session of five days the
Court of Common Pleas, for this county,
adjourned early on Monday morning of
this week. But little business was trans
acted. There were but two jury causes
tried.
We Were pleased to learn that there was
no business for the Grand Jury, which
adjourned after being in session a few
hours. This was also the case at the late
terms of the court in Belmont and Guern
sey .'counties. Evil-doers have become
dissatisfied with Judge Alexander's admin
istration of the criminal code, and have
left for parts unknown.
Democratic Convention.
It will be seen, by reference to another
column in to-day's paper, that the Central
Committee for this county, have called the
Convention for the '.ast Saturday in August.
The candidates to be placed in nomination
this fall are a Representative in Congress.
Probate Judge, a County Auditor, a
County Commissioner, and probably a
Board of Directors for the County Infirm-
ry, now in process of erection.
With regard to Probate Judge it may be
roper to add that the commission of the
ptesent incumbent, who was appointed by
the Governor, has had effect since the 23th
October last.. The 13lh section of the 4th
rticle of the Constitution, under which he
was . appointed, declares "In case the
ffice of any Judge shall become vacant.
before the expiration of the regular term
or which he was elected, the vacancy shall
be filled by appointment by the Governor,
until a successor is elected and qualified:
and such successor shall be elected for the
unexpired term, at the first annual election
that shall occur more than thirty days af
ter the vacancy shall have happened."
t will be seen, therefore, that the commis
sion of the present incumbent expires this
fall. The term of Elihu Morris, late Pro-
ale Judge, would not have expired until
the second Monday of February next;
consequently a Probate Judge must be
elected on the 2d Tuesday of October next
to fill out this vacancy -of three or four
months from October to February, and
also for the regular term of three years,
commencing tne second Monday of Feb
ruary next, i But of course, (as with our
present candidate for Supreme Judge,)
the same individual can be a candidate for
and fill both this vacancy from October to
February, and also the regular term.
Interesting Correspondence.
We publish below a letter from J. B.
Noll, Esq., of this county, and the reply
of Gov. Shannon thereto. It will be seen
that the Governor explicitly declines being
a candidate fdr re-election. This deter
mination, although many of his friends
desired that it might be otherwise, was to
be expected, after the action of the Barnes
ville Convention two years ago, and from
Gov. Shannon's well known desire for the
harmony and success of the Democratic
party:
VVoodsfield, O., June 5, 1854.
Hon, W. Shannon Dear Sir: As the
time is approaching when the people will
begin to consult as to who'will be candi
dates for nomination before the next Dem
ocratic Convention, for this Congressional
District,! have thought it not inappropriate
to address you on this subject. ' Many of
your old friends desire to know whether
you will be a candidate for re-election
An answer is, therefore, respectfully soli
cited. Yours, with respect,
' JOHN B. NOLL.
Washington City, June 12, 1854.
Mr. John B. Noll Dear Sir: Your
favor of the 5th instant, desiring tp know
f I will be a candidate for re-electioVi to
Congress, is now before me, and in reply I
lave to say that I will not.
At the Congressional Convention, held
in Barnesville, on the first day of Sept.,
1852, at which Col. Walton was nomina
ted as the Democratic candidate, one of the
delegates from Belmont county offered the
two following resolutions: .
"Resolved, That as the counties of Bel
mont, Guernsey, Monroe and Noble con
stitute the 17th Congressional District, and
are each entitled to their full share of Con
gressional honors, that each county is en
tilled to the nomination of a candidate for
Congress for one term during the present
apportionment; and that said counties
hereby pledge themselves to each other
that in whichever of said counties the said
candidate is nominated at this Convention
or at any subsequent Congressional Con
vention for this District, such countv re
ceiving said nomination will not present a
candidate ipr nomination until one shall
have been taken from each of the other of
said counties... . . . .
r ?' Resolved, .That no person shall be a
candidate at this or any subseauent Con-
gressional Convention of this District, who
will not pledge himself to sustain the fore
going resolution." . .-
These resolutions met with my approve
at tne time, ana received, l believe, lb
unanimous vote of the Belmont delegation,
and were adopted by a large majority in
the Convention. f They were offered and
adopted for the purpose of restoring har
mony in the Democratic party, and remov
ing that jealousy and distrust which had,
unfortunately, existed between the several
counties ot the District for several years
previous; the result of which had been that
our District, although decidedly Demo
cratic, had been represented by a Whig
for the our preceding years.
So far as I am concerned, I consider
myself in honor bound to adhere to these
resolutions in good faith, and I shall do so.
I will do no act which may be calculated
to disturb the harmony of the Democratic
party, and re-open those fueds and diffi
culties which had proved so disastrous in
previous years.
I will take this occasion to tender to my
Democratic friends in the District, and es
pecially to my Democratic friends in your
county, mysincere thanks for the gener
ous support which I have, on sli-occasions
when a candidate, received from them.
You are at liberty to publish this letter.
1 have the honor to be,
Yours, with great respect,
WILSON SHANNON.
Fusion.
A fusion between the Whig and Freesoil
parties is to be consumated, if the labors
of some of the leading Whig and Freesoil
papers can accomplish it. In fact an effort
is to be made to unite all factions and par
ties that stand in opposition to the erreat
o
Democratic party of this country. A State
Convention is called to be held in Columi
us on the 13th of July, to inaugurate a
Party of the People!" Now what is all
this for? Is it to promote any great inter
est of this State to compel the Banks, for
instance, to pay taxes as the private citizen
s compelled to do? Is it to take into consid-
ration what is to be done when the over-
rown money power has become above the
Constitution and laws "of Ohio? Or is it
to declare that the people of a territory are
incapable of self-government; or that Con
gress shall dictate to them by what laws
they shall be governed?
We do not believe that the Democracy
of this county, or of the State, are prepared
to forsake their old organization or their
old friends, and unite with the Whigs and
reesoilers. What good could be accom
plished by it? Do they expect to repeal
the Nebraska-Kansas bill? No. There
s not a man in the State, who is aware of
the organization of the Senate of the Uni
ted States, who will for a moment contend
that that can be done. There is in that
body a majority of two to one in favor ol
the bill,, and there, is no prospect of a
change for many: years to come. VVhai
then is the object of this new party? W
confess we can see in it no other object
than that of "spoils," or that, those now
out" of office may become the 'in8."
t is simply, then, a war of the "outs"
against the ins." And into this war the
eaders of the whig and freesoil parlies
will endeavor to draw the rank and file of
their parties. But, unless we are much
mistaken, there are hundreds and thou
sands of old line whigs who will depreeate
any such movement. They will enter into
no arrangement out of which they cannot
come but with "a loss of both strengh and
reputation." Hear what that sturdy old
whig paper, the Pittsburgh American, says:
" The Whigs, more particularly of Alle
gheny', have everything to lose and nothing
to gain by 'wandering in mental blindness
Irom their own firm and broad plaifocftid
and the principles and- spirit of their'or-
gahization, to lake ground on any of the
ephemeral and narrow planks of the isms
arising always around ms. No move, ol
this kind can ever be made without a loss
of both strength and reputation, as such
mo ves will ever be regarded, and justly, as
a partial abandonment of our own ground,
or an admission that it is no longer tenable
and requires this particular, new issue to
prop it at the time. Does any Whig ad
mit of this unsoundness of his party's con
stitution and its damaged state?. .Such a
thing will be scorned by every Whig.
Why then do they apply to it the unseem-
y and unsightly patches of every new col
ored ism that rises?"
On the subject of the fusion" ;the
Statesman and Democrat says: ,
The evidences of a general and con
certed effort throughout ' the country to
consolidate all the factions which made
up the opposition to the election of Pierce
and King, are constantly multiplying.
Fusion is every where the order of the
day. All the malcontents, whose appe
tites for political power have been quick
ened by a protracted abstinence, are mar
shaling their forces under the banner of
alone idea to make common cause against
the Democratic party." Whig and Free
Soil editors, but recently engaged in acrim
onious strife, are every where consolida
ting or co-operating. Whenever, as in
Connecticut, the opposition elements can
overwhelm the Democracy by combina
lion, they form alliances and divide the
patronage. In our own otate, the coali
lion between the incongruous elements of
the opposition, appears as substantial as
the famous reconciliation between Mr. and
Mrs. Micawber and the twins.
The Ohio Slate Journal and other
kindred prints have apparently struck the
flag of Whiggery, and now regard only
fusion, and spoils. That paper "asks
not for the co-operation of the Free De
mocracy or of the Old Domocracy as
distinct bodies," buUt invokes "the De
mocracy of numbers, the friends of liberty
every where,' and all parties, to' take hold
of this work " &6. r The DISORGANI
ZATION and CONQUEST of the Demo
cratic party is the object sought by the
Stale Journal heme entirely indifferent
as to the means or the tools employed for
the purpose. Accordingly, he Journal
and all the Whig. Free Sod and Abolition
papers of Ohio, heartily indorse (he call
iaaun dbv Messrr. Giddings, Wade and
others, from their head-quarters at Wash
inpton. for a State Convention to assem
ble in this city on the 13th proximo, for
the purnose of fiohtinir the battle of the
i - o o .
Nebraska-Kansas bill over again, and-of
organizing an exclusively sectional party.
The. Cleveland Herald says that at this
forthcoming Convention will be t'inaugU'
rated the parly of the People." And the
L,eaaer ot that city responds, "We are
ready for one for the inauguration of the
farly of the People, and, burying all dif
ferences of the past, and all divisions of
the present, will labor with our neighbor.
and with the true men of every party, to
insure its triumph in Ohio and in the na
tion." And what is the object of this
'People's Party?" What practical end
is to be attained? Can any one engaged
in the movement indulge a reasonable
hope that the repeal of the Nebraska-
Ivansas act can be accomplished? Wo!
the object, the practical end, is the re
surrection of Whiggery under a newname,
and the gratification of its thirst for the
spoils of office. There are good men en
gaged in this movement, who are unques
tionably governed by nigh and pure mo
tives; but when they discover that the
whole thing is only a scheme to overthrow
the Democratic parly, andL,to restore the
supremacy of Whiggery, under its new
alias, they will refuse to lend themselves
to the intrigue.
Many democratic papers in this State
that warmly opposed the repeal of the Mis
souri Compromise, are now as warmly op
posed to any "fusion" of the Democratic
with the Whig and Freesoil parties. The I
editor of the Statesman "and Democrat, on
this subject, says:
"We were opposed to the re-opening of
this slavery agitation by the repeal of the
Missouri Compromise. We continued to
oppose it until the passage of the bill ren
dered opposition unavailing. But no ra
tional man can for a moment entertain the
thought that any effort for repeal can be
successful. We are opposed to this out
cry for repeal, for reasons similar to those
which led us to oppose the disturbance of
the compromises. The best interests of
the -country demand that this sectional
controversy, and these efforts to establish
sectional parties, should be arrested by the
indignant frowns of the people. . .
"This idea of making the law organizing
the Territories of Nebraska and Kansas a
basis upon which to establish a political
party, is one which never would have en
tered the minds of any but politicians of
the most desperate fortunes. There are
live issues before the people of Ohio, di
rectly affecting their present and future in
terests; and from a consideration of these'
issues, no considerable, portion of the Democratic-party
will suffer themselves to be
led off into a chase after this Nebraska
ignis fd'.uus, which has risen at the beck
of Whig and Abolition politicians, who are
seeking only a political resurrection.'
The Steubenville Union, a paper which
steadily opposed the Nebraska bill, now
says: : ' . :
"We feel satisfied that the further agi
tation of this question in the. hope of se
curing a repeal, will result in no good. It
will only serve to add fuel to the flame o!
sectional strife , and commotion,, and oe
stroy, perhaps, for. all time to come, that
peace and harmony which should prevail
between the dilterent sections of our coun
try.'! V ' m .
The Mt. .Vernon Banner, another Demo
cratio paper that opposed the Nebraska
bill, says: ;t .-''"' -;V: ;;
"We did. not advocate the passage of
the Nebraska bill we considered thai
there was no necessity' for a renewal ol
the everlasting negro controversy, in this
country. Although never an' admirer of
the Missouri Compromise, yet we were
willing to see it remain.undisturbed, rather
than throw the country into a new state ol
excitement. We were, anxious that the
compromise measures of 1850 should be
a finality .to the whole subject of slavery

feelings, we are free to say, that we do not
