in Columbus, on the 4th of July, 1850. Let

ResoWed, That with reference to the eur-
renej question, the Democracy olUhio plants
itself upon the Constitution of the United
States . The currency fiied by that instru
ment we desire to restore and establish, and
we will use all legal and honorable means to
accomplish this object; and be inn sincerely
opposed to the existence of banks for the cir
culation of paper money, we are utterly op
posed to any feature being incorporated into
the new Constitution, by which the Legislature
of Ohio would have the power to create any
bank for the circulation of paper money.
ResoWed. That we consider it the duty of
all our public officers, after taking the oath to
support the Constitution of the United States,
to make all payments, in their official capaci
ty, in constitutional currency, instead of pa
per money; and that we especially demand
from the Board of Public Works, thit they
convert all paper money which may come under
their control into specie, and in that shape
Resolved, That banks of circulation are hos
tile alike to the equal rights of the people, and
the principles of sound political economy; that
hard money is the only currency recognized
by the Constitution, the only currency that
defrauds no man, the only currency that is ex
pedient and just; and we bole it to be incon
aistent with the p rinciples o .' the party for
democrats to participate in creating or up
holding banking institutions.

Bundy is a farmer and was elected a
member of the same body two years
ago by the counties of Gallia and Jack'
son. The citizens of Gallia at that
time, after becoming acquainted with
the man by teeing and hearing him,
sent him out of the county 337 ahead
of his opponent. We believe the coun

election. Let it not do worse. -

The most fastidious will search in vain

JOHN N. KERR
for Commissioner. He has served the
county in this capacity for a number of

nomination shows that his election is
beyond a doubt as it does that of

for Auditor. Mr. H. is a young man
well qualified to discharge the duties of
the office. He is not entirely without
experience, having acted as an assistant
in the office. As a clerk he has no su
perior in the county. We know him
to be attentive and prompt, and a Whig
of the right stamp. Aside from the
peculiar fitness of his qualifications,
there are other reasons which will ope
rate strongly in his favor in the mind of
every right thinking man. It is unne
cessary to speak of them here. We
trust the young Whigs of Gallia will
appreciate this selection of one of their
number for an important office, by ex
tending to Mr. H. their united influence

is composed of men who will prove

and so great inducements for united
and energetic action, harmony and sue
cess cannot fail to be the result.

By the proceedings below it will
be seen that the Railroad company,
incorporated by an act of . the last
General Assembly has organized.
The strong feeling manifested in
Western Virginia in favor of a Rail
road through the centre of that State
to tap the Ohio either at the mouth
of the Kanawha, or some point
below, and the probable construc
tion of such a road at ho distant
day, was perhaps the first and
strongest inducement for the asking
this act of incorporation. That a
Virginia company would find it to
their interest to come down the val
ley of the Kanawha to the Ohio river,
rather than to cross from Charleston
to Guyandotte, we think is certain,
if they look beyond the banks of the
Ohio and would secure for their road,
as they might, the business of South
ern Ohio. The route from this place
to Chillicothe is nearer, and much
to be preferred for feasibility and
the cheapness of building a road than
from any point below. We hope
soon to be able to lay before our rea
ders some facts connected with this
route through Jackson, as steps are
being taken to have it surveyed.
The company has been organized to
keep alive the charter and make
such investigations as may be neces
sary to present the subject fairly and
fully. Let our citizens and those
along the line extend to the officers
their attention and aid.

WASHINTON, Sept. 1.
There is a report in town that the
Hon. Charles J. Jenkins declines the
appointment of Secretary of the In
terior. Whether the report be cor
rect or not I am unadvised.
On Friday, in the House, Mr.
Sweetzer, of Ohio "the lion-hearted
Sweetzer," as the Union styles him
abruptly objected to a motion
made by his political friend. Gen.
Bayly, for which the General petu
lently called "the lion-hearted mem
ber from Ohio a "puppy." This
passed off, not without comments,
Yesterday, Gen. Bayly made an
other motion, when Mr. Sweetzer
feelingly objected to it whereupon
Gen. Bayly repeated that the mem
ber from Ohio was a puppy, a snarl
ing puppy, and declared that if he
repeated his affront again he would
pull his nose for him!
Thus stood this matter when the
House adjourned yesterday. It cre
ates a great deal of speculation, and
no one seems to know what to-morrow
may bring forth! Every body
hopes that Mr. Sweetzer, "the lion-
hearted" friend of the editor of the
Union, and Gen. Bayly, the dearly
beloved friend of the same venerable
editor, will not undertake to shoot
WASHINTON, Sept. 1. Sept. 2.
The nomination of Mr. Ewbank,
es Commissioner of Patents, contrary
to general expectation, was con
firmed. If Mr. Jenkins declines the tender
of the Department of the Interior,
the President will offer the appoint
ment to his old friend Judge Sum
mers of Virginia, who was formerly
in Congress with him, and who is a
noble son of the Ancient Dominion
I learn this from a source entirely
Mr. Warren, the Second Assistant
Postmaster General, has gone to the
North to look after the mails in that
quarter. If anv body can regulate
them, he can.
The difficulty between General
Bayly and the "lion-hearted" Mr.
Sweetzer, of the House, has been
amicably adjusted., Mr. McLane, of
Maryland, delighted the House this
morning with joyful and unexpected
tiding that all was settled, and Mr.
Disnev, of Ohio, as the friend of Mr.
Sweetzer, had done the business, and
made the angry belligerents peaceful
friends once more! Noble pence
makers! They have done well,
Messrs. McLane and Dinsey have!

counts of immense damage done to
property by a late freshet, and the
painful intelligence of the loss of a
large number of lives. The storm
occurred on the 1st and 2d. We
make the following extracts:
Along the line of the Susquehan

tensive. Some parts of the road
was several feet under water.
The Codorus creek, in York coun
ty, Pa., was higher than it has been

streets in York were flooded with
more than two feet of water. Mr,
Koon's railroad bridge was entirely
swept away. The damage along
the Codorus has been very great.
The Conestoga, in Lancaster coun

ter mark, by the rains of Sunday and
Monday. Great quantities of lum
ber have been swept away, besides
other extensive damage being done
Along the whole line of the Schuyl
kill and Lehigh Can a la, the destruc
tion to life and property is immense.
At Heading, on the Schuylkill Riv
er, part of the town wes inundated,
and a number of houses along the
line swept off. Persons were seen
floating down the river on beds, logs
and houses. A number of bridges
on the Reading Railroad have been
carried away. Three bridges over
the ftchuylkill were swept away.
Two large bridges at Manayunk
have been carried away bv the force
of the freshet. At least thirty lives
have been lost. It is thought the
Schuylkill Canal will not do any
further business this season.
Several, breaches have occurred
on the Pennsylvania Canal. Thirty
or forty houses have been carried
away at Towanda, and upwards of
fifty lives lost.
