If he did'nt succeed in getting to be editor in chief of the Journal his services would at least be well paid for as a regular contributor. : Scandal-Peddling. A writer in the last Journal, in giving what he calls an account of the pole rais ing here, deserves the everlasting grati tude of the people of this neighborhood. Not for his two columns and a half of falsehoods about the pole raising, which is so handsomely replied to by a corres pondent; but for going out of his way so far to publish a little home-made scandal about our young ladies, lie says : "The day was fixed and such was the haste of some of the ladies in the coun try to" be present that they worked iudus triously all day on Sunday, making the white dresses to be worn on the occa oiuu If there is any one class of persons to whom soeiety is more indebted than an other for its peace and comfort, it must be to scandal-mongers. All tlie little peccadilloes of the neighborhood, with every trifling family jar, that can be fer reted out, are by these persons tattled about' for general discussion and com ment. By this means people are enabled to conform their conduct to public opin ion. , If one neighbor thoughtlessly makes a remark not very flattering of another, these persons out of pure friendship, con vey it to the injured person, and he thus ascertains what his neighbors think of him.' Half a dozen of. these . usefu and well-meaning persons can soon make a paradise of any neighborhood. . IIow perfectly lovely and angelic such a voca tion , makes a lady! What ornaments to their sex and to society! But a man one I of the "lords of creation" who engages in tattling, certainly stands pre-eminent above all his race. There is something so noble and grand in manufacturing pet ty scaudal and peddling it around among neighbors, or publishing it in some news paper unscrupulous enough to admit it. When the victims happen to be young ladies, then it becomes gallant, chivalric, and challenges our highest admiration. J net imagiue you see this self-sacrificing individual standing under a window lis tening to family circle conversations, or hid in some closet to overhear the gossip of old ladies at a tea-table. Or think of him industriously inquiring among per sons of his own . laudable occupation, in order to find out something to interest his neighbors with, . by telling it to them or publishing it in a paper. We trust the ladies will not 6uffer this gossipping, tattling, scandal-monger to go unrewarded. A professed gentleman, who employs his time and talents in man ufacturing and peddling little pitiful tales about young ladies certainly needs some encouragement. Ladies, do something for him. . . ., The Teachers Institute. " - The above named institute closed, on last Friday, in this place, the most suc cessful session ever held in the county. A larger number of teachers were present than at any previous session, most of whom remained during the entire two weeks. Of course It is hardly necessary for as to say that the teachers who attend this as sociation are the oet nterprising and generally the best qualified in the wunty. The session was well attended through out by citizens of this place who felt an interest in the proceedings and desired to encourage by their presence so beneficial an institution We have not time or space to dwell upon details; suffice it to say that all who attended it spectators as well as members were ; highly gratified by the manner in which it was conducted. ; .. The Association ip no longer an exper iment, it is now a fixed fact. The next session will be duly announced, and those teachers who can attend it and do not, to say the very least, will not display a very commendable spirit of enterprise. . About that Uat.

Mr, Editou: The principal, at least the lengthiest article in the last issue of the Monroe Journal was devoted to "pole raising " generally, and " Star Spangled Banners particularly. Having no doubt but that some at least of the "Woolleys" will be verdant enough to swallow the whole two and one-half columns devoted to that subject, as they are quite remark able for their gullibility, I brg leave, hav ing been present as well as " bpectator," to give my version of the affair. I claim that my account of the pro ceedings, is entitled to more credit than Spectator's" for two reasons : 1st. "Spectator," as he himself will admit, was so unfortunate in the " days of his youth" as to contract the very unami able and very reprehensible habit of evad ing the truth; and when he grew up to the years and stature of manhood, instead of abandoning that vile habit, which is de nounced by the Bible and all other good books, he , completely verified, by the course which he has pursued in his more mature years, that ancient maxim, "just as the twig is bent the tree is inclined." 2nd. This second proposition not be injr like unto the Grst, Belf-evident, (who that reads the article in the Journal will deny it?) will require some substantia tion. Now be it remembered, that Mr Spec tator is not charged with imbibing any thing spirituous on that day, is not charg ed with being inebriated, intoxicated, or drunk, or either of them, for it is well kuown that he, " Spectator," is strictly temperate on almost all occasions. But it is claimed that as it was quite chilly the day the pole was raised,' and as it was a public day, and as it was election times, and as there was plenty of fluid, if a man ever did permit himself to indulge slightly, it is not at all improbable that he would select that very identical time. But let us imagine ourselves on the ground in the immediate vicinity of the spot where the Democrats contemplated plant ing the hickory. There are numbers of persons present, but your attention is di rected to one individual particularly. . beated on a door step is an individual about thirty-five years of age, engaged apparently iu earnest thought. His hand some brow, overshadowed by waving hair, and about three-fourths of the rim of an old hat, is slightly contracted as if in deep and earnest thought, or as if "something hurt him." Iu one hand he holds a wooden pencil sharpened at one end, In the other is grasped a sheet of white foolscap. His costume is after the fashion of the times, that is to say, leg-envelopes very tight and coat tails extremely long, and it is necessary to add, that there mav be no mistake in the identity, that out of the foldj of one of the aforesaid coat tails protruded the' lurger end of what may nave been, comparatively speaking, a small corn cob, which corn cob may or may not have been inserted in the neck of a flask, which flask may have contained but the latter is all mere conjecture, and should not be indulged in by no man ner of means. Of course it is necessary as before intimated, to be very particular in description, that there may be no mis take in the identity, this is all the excuse that is offered for describing so minutely the personal appearance of Mr. Specta tor. While " Spec." was yet seated on the step, a long visaged individual, with a singular woe begone countenance, ap proached, and " a looker on " heard the following interesting dialogue : It is uecessary to premise that the new comer resided in the country, and although he had heard some things, was not alto gether posted up in the political news. Countryman: (Smiling ruefully,) "How dye do, Mr. Spectator?" Spec. " How (hie) are you my (hie) friend? (hie.)" ' Countryman: "Any news from poor down trodden Eanzas in the last " Era?" Spec. (Savagely) "No! But (hie) there's news from (hie) (hie) Penn (hie) sylvania (hie)." Countryman- "How did Pennsylvania go?" " Spec: "Go! It went to (hie) (hie)." Countryman'. "Well I suppose by this time you have heard from Indiana, and I reckon she went all right." Spec: (looking very unamiable) " I'm a takin' notQS and don't waflt to be both ered about (hie) small matters," . I Just at this interesting period in their conversation the hickory commenced go ing up, the whole 206 feet rising in the air most "majestically" as "Spec" just then said is bis notes, ' . .' ' The conversation wis again resumed by "Countryman" who inquired "What was the exact democratic ' majority in Monro.' The reply to this inquiry will not be here recorded; suffice it to say that not only was "Countryman" considerably 'sot back, but the language used was in di rect violation of the Statute in such case made and provided, s well as contrary to the teachings Of all the Sabbath school books now in general circulation. After Spec's equanimity was somewhat restored, he conclnded ' to ' soothe bis wounded feelings by something consoling, and suggesting this to his friend, they de parted with that laudable purpose in view. '-" ': ' Here it is proposed to deliver a "plain unvarnished " 1 narrative of the proceed ings: The first day proving rainy, the pole raising was postponed and another day .appointed. The second day having arrived, the persons present went to work and after the usual delay, ' the pole 205 feet out of the ground was standing erect, overtoppiug the Fremont pole about 1500 or thereabouts. In letting down the der rick the pine top, which by the way onght not to be on a hickory by no. means, was broken off, leaving the clean hickory stand ing as firm and as solid as when growing in its native forest, and tali enough too for all practical purposes. ISext in order Capf, Morns delivered a very neat and appropriate speech, on the premutation to the Democracy of a very beautiful banner, which was made and presented by some of the'ladies of our town. And here is added, by way of episode, if the ladies who were at the Fremont pole raising had rctnrned those white dresses they borrowed, it would have obviated the ' necessity of some of the ladies "working on Sunday." The pro ceedings, to return ' to the subject, were enlivened by excellent music discoursed by the German band, and the harmony would have been perfect had it not been that two or three "Spectators," who being in favor of all things with the pre fix "free," partook of too much " new corn," and consequently got a " leetle blue." The last thing done was to run up the Stars and Stripes to the music of the Star Spangled Banner,' and the mul titude dispersed. Now compare the length of the fore going account of the proceedings with that made out by the Journal writer, sub tract the difference in length, and the re mainder will be just what might be expected from the pen of an individual whose vision was obscured, as well as his htariug, in the manner herein described. But to return to Spectator and his col league who had left the scene to recruit, and returned just iu time to see-that ban ner as it first unfolded to the breeze; they tarried but a short time, being it is sup posed disgusted with " sich doins," but proceeded down street with a lofty step, their spirits feeling elevated by the music perhaps; aud next coming to the conclu sion to locate themselves, they "rounded too and anchored" on a cellar door. Here they remained until the stars com menced blinking at them from their places above, theu they departed leaving behind them that sheet of " foolscap " covered all over by curious hieroglyphics, and which was picked np by "a looker on," some extvacts, being portions much too precious to be buried in oblivion, are here present ed to the reader. The heading of said foolscap is presented et spellatim. Here it is : "Noatz on Poll raisins fur to Right A artikel fur The munro jurnal." The man uscript was vcy much defaced from some cause, aud traces of tears having blotted the pages were quite visible. Some por tions of the " foolscap " were so defaced that here and there a word only could be seen; some specimens of which are given, as follows: "blood red or scarlet," 'Slave democracy,' "Kansas," "blood," "Cuba," "Slave State," &c, &e. There was also a couple of verses of "poetry" marked in quotation murks, evidently from some fa vorite "poic," perhaps William Culleu Brien.' But here's the "Pome:" " Coruo all ye people one and all And help to roll the temperance hall, Now is the time for every one ' To stop the sale of cursed rum, And loggers! Now Is the time to come in flocks And rally round the ballot box, The girls will march in lovely files smiles And all the way will be strewed With And Xiggcrs'." The loss of the notes accounts for the above "poetry" not appearing in the "ar ticle" in the Journal, which loss occasion ed much vexation to the' author, no doubt, if the poetry was original with him, as it very probably was, notwithstanding his modesty in marking it as a quotation. One more observation. There is an old and true saying, " that folks that live in glass houses should'nt throw stones." Mr. Spectator should remember this, and the next time that he attempts to take notes, he, in the first place, should entirely refrain from all exhiierating fluids; in the second place, he should not loose his notes; and in the third place, if he does loose them, he should refrain from attempting to give an account of the proceedings, be cause his memory is to treacherous; other wise the proverb above quoted may be verified iu bis case. A LOOKER ON. Mr. VaUandigham Contests the elec tion of Lewis D. Campbell. The Dayton Empire of yesterday con tained a formal notice from Mr VaUan digham to Lewis L. Campbell, apprising him of his intention to contest his seat in the next Congress. Mr. VaUandigham makes nineteen points of contest, the most important of which is are follows : . "15. That sundry persons, not 'white male citizens of the United States,' were permitted to vote for you, "1$. That Alfred J. Anderson, John M. Mitchell. James Robins, Reuben Red man, Thomas Tester, John D Robbins, Alexacder Procter, Cyrus H. Cowan, Robert Goings, W. Griffith, and twenty two other. mulattoes, and persons of color, not qualified electors under the constitu tion and laws of Ohio, were permitted to vote for you." The chances appear decidedly favorable to Mr VaUandigham obtainiug the seat, as Campbell has but nineteen majority on the face of the returns. The D-O-G S." In the districts represented by Disney, Olds, Green and Shannon, who voted for the Nebraska Bill, and who were charac terized as "D-O-G-S" for so doing, the Democracy have elected their Congress men. In these districts the principle of the bill has been" thoroughly discussed, and the "sober second thought" of the people has been expressed in approval of the great measure which' declares their capacity 6 regulate their own affairs.- Tiffin Advertiser - ,; v " ; ' The facts allnded to by the Advertiser is most significant, and conveys a useful lesson to politicians. Had more Demo crats from Ohio voted for the Nebraska Bill, the State would have been in a bet ter condition, politically, than she is now. The Democratic party is never injured by its members courageously adhering to their principles, however great may be the clamor against them. Of this the recent elections in the First, Ninth, Twelfth and Seventeenth Districts afford another striking illustration. Cin. Enauirtr 1IIG HLY IMPORTANT FROM KAN ZAS PEACE AND QUIET RE STORED GOV.

Important Railway Consolidation. A Convention of the Presidents ord Directors of the Chartiers Valley, Hemp field, Marietta and Cincinnati Railroad Companies, was held in this city (Phila delphia) last week, which was occupied for several days iir making arrangements for the consolidation of the several com panies named, into one corporation. The result of their Jabots, as we ore informed, was a preliminary contract, designed to accomplish this end, by the formation of a joint association, under the title of the Ohio Valley Railroad Company, This title is very appropriate, in view of the geographical position occupied by the dif ferent, lines of the projected enterprise, which, wheu completed, as a glance at the map will show, will commence at Pitts burg, and follow the general course of the Ohio, a distance of sixty-three miles to Wheeling, where it will cross by a rail road bridge to be erected hereafter. Frera Wheeling it will follow the west bank of the river to Marietta, a distance of seventy-C'ght miles, and then crossing the Muskingum by a stupendous railway bridge, now nearly Niilt, it will leave the bank of the stream, an J pursue a direct western coarse through C&Uicolbe, cut ting off the great bends of the Ohio, and, traversing iu its passage the connives of Washington, Athens, Vinton, Jackson, Ross, Highland, Clinton, Warren and Hamilton, finally terminate at Cincinnati Though at some pointp distant seventy miks from the Ohio; this route, it will be seen, is still nearer to it than that of any other railway, and must be looked to for their railway facilities, by all the cities and towns bordering the river between Whccliug and Cincinnati. We have no doubt that the movement now commenced will ultimately bring about the successful inauguration of one of the most important and powerful lines of Railway in the United States. Aathe con olidation of the various companies which compose the Pittsburg, Fort Wayne and Chicago Railroad has furnished a great northwestern arm to our Pennsyl vania Railroad, enabling H to reach in that direction clear to Cbreago, so will the Ohio Valley Railroad supply it with a great south-western arm . stretching from Pitts- borgb to Cincinnati, and beyond the lat ter point, by means of the Ohio and Mis- sissippi raitway, already in great part constructed, all the way to St. Louis, Toe effect of the Uaioa proposed . will practically be, that but three companies wiil occupy the ground from Philadelphia to St. Louis, extending more than a thou sand miles, and that their materia) inter ests will induce them to make every effort to bring the travel and traffic from the whole intervening- country to this city. A great feature in the proposed Ohio Valley Railroad will be, that it will be the only railway which will carry the Penn sylvania gnage across the State of Ohio; aad another, not less important will be, ' that it will be the only route by which the three Atlantic cities, Phila delphia, New York and Baltimore, can connect, by au unbroken and continuous iron track, with the Queen City of the West. As in early days the Ohio river was the common thoroughfare by which the cities of the seaboard sought the soath west, it is fair to presume that," in the changed condition of things, the Ohio Valley Railroad will be used for a similar purpose, as no other combination of lines can afford 'such equal facilities to the cities we have named, for the accommoda tion of their trade with Cincinnati and St. Louis. ' :" - ; In proof of the facility with which the consolidation here ppoken of may be ef. fected, and the reasonable time within which it may be completed, we may state that the companies proposed to be em braced in it have made great progress to wards the consummation of their several enterprises. One hundred and sixty miles of the Marietta and Cincinnati and Hills boro' and twenty-two miles of the Hemp field Railroads are now in operation. Thirty-eight miles more of the former, which will finish the line west of Marietta, will be open for traffic by January. . The residue of the Hempfield between Wheel ing and Washington, will be similarly ready in December. The Chartiers Valley Road, from Wash ington to Pittsburg, is nearly graded, and can be finished iu four months. A large amount of work has been done on the Marietta. Road between Marietta and Wheeling, and ihe whole may be put iu condition to receive the cars by next mid summer, so that within a year from the present time the whole line may be in run ning condition. Up to the present pe riod the total expenditures of the four companies may be 6tated as follows: Marietta and Cincinnati $7,767,680 Hillsboro' and Cincinnati. . . . 1,262,073 Hempfield , 1,800,000 Chartiers Valley 360,000 Total. .$11,189,753 (From the Liverpool Times, September 11.) Gloomy Prospect in France. Proba- ' bility of a Political Revolution. The interest of the week centers in France. The financial position of that couutry is -armed, and a belief is current that the suspension of specie payments is enevita- able. Public confidence is evidently shak en, and the habit of hoarding has become general the best proof of the unhealthy condition of society. The drain from the Bank of France is serious, and much dis tress has arisen from the absence of a sil ver coinage to meet the requirements of society. France is rapidly drifting to ward a panic, and a financial writer of au thority gives this gloomy view of things "A few days will determine whether the evil is about to assume fatal proportions Should the next week pass quietly over, so as to allow the more favorable accounts from Germany and China to produce an effect, while the high rate of discount is checking importations and inducing sales of produce and manufactures, the crisis will perhaps be found to have been sur mouuted. If this result should not bo wit nessed, and the people in blind confusion should still rush to the bank, there cau, of course, be no termination other than suspension of specie payments. At pres ent the Emperor is said to have an iusur mouutable aversion to a suspension of cash payments." in population or I'aris is m a very feverish state. The artisans of the fau bourgs are deeply incensed against the government. The high price of the necessaries of life, the pressure of house-rents aud the want o employment are producing deep aud gen ernl discontent. The long absence of the Emperor from Paris has added to the com plicatious, and Lonis Napoleon is consid crcd to be himself the govornment, this unfortunate condition of things sorely iui perils his popularity Iu fact matters ap pear to have come to such a pass in the French metropolis that nothing which can possibly oeeur there will occasion . sur prise. Hitherto the genius of the Em peror has proved strong enough for any emergency, and the present is the time for testing the test of his resources. . Never since the coup d'etat was he in such peril. M. Mague, the French Minister of Fi nance, has submitted to the Emperor o statement in which he paints in very glow icg colors the prosperity and resources of the country, and he shows that ahhough France has been to endure at the same time war, cholera, inundations, and pro lodged death or provisions, this accumu lation of calamities has not induced disor der, nor checked trade, nor led to diminu tion of the revenue. If an impatient and discontented people could be satisfied with reasons, this state paper ought to set ev erything right, but the difference between the theoretical prosperity here delineated aud the actual misery which exists tells against the Minister's assumptions Proclamation by the" Governor of thg v State of Ohio. In conformity with- a custom sanctioned by Legislative resolves-, commended, by the practice of my predecessors in the execu tive office, and, in itself, highly becoming to Christian people, J, Salmon P. Chase, Governor of the State of Ohio, do hereby designate and appoint Thursday, the 20tA day of November? of the current year, to be observed as a day of public thanksgiving to Almighty God. Refraining on that day from the ordinary avocations of life, let ns keep the feast with joyful hearts..

Ador ing the Divine wisdom by which our fath ers were guided, establishing the founda tions of united empire in North America upon the solid basis of civil and religious freedom, and the Divine sroodness by which the institutions of government which they founded and transmitted to us their children, let us give thanks for liberty, guarded by law and defended by union. Confessing, humbly, our nnworttuness of these inestimable benefits, let ns fervently invoke our Father in Heaven to continue them.graciously.to us and to our prosterity forever.
