G.Conover A: Specimen of Fusion . . Economists. : - . A few weeks ago we stated that we , : i would refer to some of this gentleman's : - - operations in this county, as Engineer for ' ' the commissioners, as circumstances might require. But, as we had no. desire to do ' .- the gentleman injustice, or to make a state- v. ment that we had not the facts to substan- - - tiate, we have refered the matter until the - present.; The facts, that we . here state ' ' . are from one of the commissioners, of the . came political faith with himself, and con- - . sequently it cannot be charged to the ac- count of political persecution. About a ; year since this gentleman was employed by : the commissioners to furnish draughts and - . locate the arch, bridge on Ash Street and - - the South River bridge in this city, an .amount of work which would probably oc- - vt-- cupy his time one or two weeks, for which . ; he charged and was paid by the county the ' sum 6f $200. 'Just think of this, farmers . and people of Miami county, A. G. Con - f over, wbea not a candidate for public of- - ' fice, charged and received from the county "about three prices for services rendered .. But, this is not alL In locating the Arch bridge, it is,,charged, and we believe it to be true, that housed his power to benefit . the property holders on the north side of - v the street, " and to the injury of the proper : '; .ty'ori the south side, by locating the bridge : " t least two feet south of the center of the ;' - street: Now, we ask, if this be true, and : the facts seem to warrant us in the belief, f is he a fit man for the position of com mi s- s . v sioner of the Board of Public Works. .. If, - by hii culpable negligence or favoritism, v t he has greatly benefitted one set of pro . " . , porty holders ta the injury of others, is he ; a competent or fit person to have the man- 1 . 1 agement of the public works of the State. We, think the answer will be . given next October m loud, emphatie No. -. mta the matter of his charges to the coun : " -y. ty the commissioners felt so perfectly out ' raged that they determined to never again -employ bun without first having a specific . bargain. And to show the people of the ' county1 that he himself regarded his char ';. .-tges-as an outrage, he . is now performing .' - one nauoi tne same amount of work for ' ;t50,' .This is enough of itself to fasten f the charge we make against him of 9ver ... v "charging the county for work done. We shall frequently. refer to his case during the ' - t canvass as we have ample meterial. &'; Will Sebastopol be Taken. The Invalide Rosso, the Russian official organ, published a remarkable article, four columns long, under the heading: Will Sebastopol ever be taken? Though free from bagadocio, it concludes with expres sing the convictionthat the fortress is im pregnable, though it confesses that the al lies would have taken it, had they assault ed it from the position they now occupy, on the morrow of the day they arrived there. It says Sebastopol can replace one hundred dismounted guns in a night, or can exchange 50,000 fatigued troops ugainst 50,000 fresh troops; that the al lies cannot, with double the force they can dispose of, cut off the communication by Perekop: that the Russian army, fighting for its country and its sovereign, is ani mated by a better spirit than is the heter ogeneous mass of French, English, Turks, Egyptians, and Sardinians, contending for an abstract idea and for a confused interpretation of the duties of civilization; that four days after the tremendous bom bardment of the 28th of March, Sebasto pol was stronger than before; that at this moment,the daily allied losses are greater, and those of the garrison less, than ever before. It goes on to show the tremen dous preparation for the reception of the enemy, if it succeed in obtaining a mo mentary foothold. The Paris Constitu- tionnel affects to consider this article as a desperate effort to reassure the people of St. Petersburg, and gffers as a reply to the question, Will Sebastopol be taken? the sentiment that it will. Duel Prevented.. . The Washington "Star" of Saturday says: Last night information was given to the police of this city that, from circunstances of recent occurrance, there was reasons to believe that arrangements were making or were made for a duel between the Hon. Chas. J. Faulkner and Colonel Boteler.the opposing candidates in the Harper's Fer ry district, in the late Congressional elec tion in Virginia. The gentleman who lodged the information is related to one of the parties and . the political friend of the other. . His statement was clear and free from the least particle of prejudice for or against either gentleman. Warrants were immediately issued, and Capt. Birch of the Auxilliary Guard, J. Davis, Chief of Police, with officers Allen, Handy and Boss went in search of the parties. Col. Boteler was found at the Kirkwood House in company with hi3 friends, Messrs Stout er and Donnel; Mr. Faulkner atWillard's Hotel, where he has been stoppiug. They were taken to the guard house where an examination took place before Justice Morsell; during which the principals were separated; the one being in the retiring room while the other was in the trial room. Both appeared to be very much disap pointed at the interference. The testi mony does not show that a challenge was tendered or accepted; that the suspicious circumstances were considered sufficient to require security of the parties that no duel should take place. . The sum demanded by the Justice . was $5,000 each. Col. Alexander Provost became the security of Mr. Faulkner, and George Plant for CoL Boteler. ' The bond requires that they shall not fight a duel in this district nor leave for that purpose. The Search, for Gold in Arkansas. A letter from Fort Smith, dated the 30th ultimo gives the latest intelligence from the gold hunters in the Witchita Mountains, as follows: . " We hate just received letters from the party of gold hunters that went out from this town. . They estimate their distance from Fort Smith to be four hundred and fifty miles, and in the neighborhood of the Little Arkansas river, and found no gold, but were determined to keep up the search a while longer. . They were all well; the Indians they had met were friendly. One of the party, John Ruddisel, late of Flor ida, became disgusted, and committed suicide by shooting himself through the heart. Mr. Poole, the cause of this gold fever, passed the Creek Agency with his party last week, on their way home. They had been lost on the plains; had traveled over one thousand two hundred miles, found no gold, and were used up generally. Parties, chiefly of Missourians, are con stantly coming in, many of them had been lost, and one company brought up at Fort Arbuckle, some three hundred miles southwest of this. The Fort Smith com pany will probably be the last to return, and with that event will terminate the humbug for this time. s The loss has been great to hundreds, but this is the fourth or fifth time within six or eight years people have deceived themselves in this matter; and unless this lesson proves more effectual than former similar ones have done, a year or two will witness a like excitement and result." The War to be Ended. The Nan- tucketers have been favored with a glimpse of a warlike invention Jri the shape of cannon,. which, according to the sanguine owner is at once to demolish any . thing that faces its terrible power. If the Al lies obtain it. down goes Sebastopol. : If the Russians, the Allied cake is dough. The Nantucket Inquirer says: - : "The cannon has been tried, and will throw a ball ten miles, a fact which insures greater accuracy in aim, and certainly un limited execution at a distance of three or five miles. It will throw a shell as well as a solid ball; the latter, and probably both will be of an oval, or pyramidal form ihe brother of the inventor is about to leave New York , for Europe, , with the model of the gun carrying- a ball of six pounds, and intends disposing' of the in vention to the Allies or the Russians, and he confidently anticipated that the pur chaser will prove victorious.- ,,Twenty-five small pieces, constructed ; on the same principle, have been sold ta the Mexican Government. Of course, the principle up on which it works was not fully commu nicated, but our readers may rely on the veracity of the above statement,as the gen tleman is of the highest respectability' Humbug, perhaps. ., . t MARRIED On the 16th of August, 1855 by Georgo W. Watson, Esq.rMr. Davjd Parks, of Harrison county, to Miss Elisabeth E. Bio lev, of Wayne township, Monroe county, Ohio. liy the same, on the 20th inst., Mr. Isaac D.

DIED-lOn the 18th inst., at his residence in Summit township, in this county, ALEXANDER CAMPBELL, aged eighty-three years and eight months. The deceased was an old United Irishman; one of the patriot soldiers of that period in the history of Ireland which is equivalent to the Revolution in our country; the only difference being, the latter was successful and the former was not. "I remember," said he, a few hours before his death, "the bonflresthe joy and en thusiasm with which the Declaration of Inde pendence was received in the North of Ireland, when we received intelligence of that event. My uncle said he could hardly be restrained. Following the custom of the times, he tapped a keg and called all hid neighbors, poor and rich, to partake, who would drink Washing ton's health." . The decease'd was a whig in sentiment, but looked npon the new secret order with horror: a I remember the birth of the United Stated," said he, M but if this secret order is not van quished, my bones will hardly be cold in the grave until it will descend to anarchy, agrari anism, confusion and destruction. Mark my words." This he said on going to bed the night . he died. lie retired to rest in better health than he had had for some time. During the night his daughter heard a noise in his room, and hastening to his bed, arrived in time to huar in a clear, unbroken and distinct voice, Fanny, catch me ! I'll fall! I'll' fall !" He did not survive more than three minutes after that. His knowledge of geography was very exten sive. The last two years of his life were spent in a devotional frame of mind. His Bible was the man of his counsel. Many a time has he been heard to pray, "Lord, when my time comes, may I not be kept long in pain." His prayers were answered. "' C. ' RETAIL PRICES.
