' This week we issue the Journal
one day in advance of our usual time.
The cause of this is not of frequent
occurrence, and we shall seldom tail
to distribute the Journal to out town
subscribers on Wednesday evening.
Thanksgiving. Thursday, the 28th
inst, is the day set apart by Got. Ford
to be observed as a day of thanksgiving
and prayer throughout the State. Fit
and proper is the-observance of such a
day at this season of the year. The
products of labor during the heat and
bustle of summer, have been liberal.
The harvests are gathered, and all are
preparing for winter, which comes on
apace. While the toil of the husband
man has been well rewarded, other
branches of industry have not been
without their return. That disease,
whose mysterious visitings have made
many hearts desolate, has receded be
fore the frosts of that herald, the ap
proaching winter.
, We trust our citizens generally wi'l
comply with the recommendation of the
Governor, abstaining from all secular
employments, they render thanks and
praise for peace in our borders, general
health, for abundant harvests, for the
spread of knowledge, and for all His
temporal blessings;" for "God is great,
and great is His goodness to the chil
dren of men." .
Massachusetts. Only three of
the ten Congressmen were elected in
this State at the recent election.
Appleton and Fowler, Whigs, and
Mann, Free Soil. In seven districts
no choice! The chance for a Whig
Governor is not good, although
Briggs, the Whig candidate, has a
plurality of 20,000 or 30,000 over
either of his opponents. In ' case of
no election of Governor by the peo
ple, the lower House sends up to the
Senate the names of the four candi
dates receiving the hinhest number
of votes, from which the Senate
chooses the Governor. We make
the following extract from a letter
to the editor, dated Boston, Nov. 17:
The Whigs of Massachusetts are bea
ten this year. The opposition will have
a majority of the Senators, and thus far
they have elected the most representa
tives to the lower house, but there are
yet so many vacancies to be filled on
the fourth Monday of this month, that
the character of the house will not be
determined until after the election that
takes place on that day. I have no
doubt that a determined effort, on the
part of the Whigs would secure to them
a majority, but I fear that they will not
make such an effort. If we can secure
the house, the opposition will find that
they have effected a most barren victory,
for we can prevent the election of any
other man than Winthrop to the U. S.
Senate, and perhaps compell the Senate
to choose between two VYhigs for Gov
ernor of Massachusetts. In the event
of the opposition having a majority of
both houses, we have nothing to hope
for except that the discordant material
of which they are composed, may pro
duce disunion among themselves.
New York. The vote between
Hunt and Seymore was so close that
nothing but the official figures could
decide. Hunt beats Seymore 2bl.
The other State officers elected are
Locos and Free Soil Locos, the ma
jorities varying from 76S to 7000.
The majority against the repeal of
tne School Law, is about 30,000.
Next Monday. Congress, the
Ohio Legislature and the Constitu
tional Convention will assemble next
Monday. We hope to lay before
our readers the President's Message
and the organization of the Legisla
ture in our next. Although the lat
ter may be considered doubtful, if
the disposition of the Free Soilers re
sembles that of their predecessors for
the last two years. W e shall en
deavor to keep our readers well ad
vised of the actions of these bodies,
and if in consideration thereof or
any other consideration, our circula
tion should be extended, most kind
ly should we takeit. What say you
friends, will you aid usT, -

Virginia Central Railroad.
The friends of this road in Richmond
city, Va., have been holding meetings
to consider the question of city end
individual subscription to the capital
stock of this company..!- We are well
pleased to see that the people of
Richmond are coming to understand
their true interests," and will do their
duty in extending this road to; the
Ohio river. At one of the meetings
in Richmond, Hon. G. W. Summers,
of Kanawha, spoke on the question
of taking the sense of the citizens of
Richmond, in reference to a subscrip
tion of $100,000 by the corporate
authorities of the city to the Central
Road. . It was a powerful appeal to
ihe citizens of Richmond to exert
themselves for the completion of this
road to the Ohio. Such a speech can
net fail to do good, much good. We
would like to present this speech en
tire to our readers,. but have only
space for the following extract. We
copy from the Kanawha Republican,
for a copy.of which we are indebted
to E. S. Menager, Esq.
. Fellow-citizens, 1 said that you
might look to it as a railroad begin
ning at Richmond and terminating
on the Ohio river, but I would beg
leave to enlarge on that idea. . Let
us not think of ifas . terminating fi
nally on the Ohio river. .Let us at
least look forward to the queen city
of the West. Cincinnati is to be the
termination of the road. Beginning
at Richmond and terminating at
the mouth of the Kanawha, and then
to continue across a country rich in
product, and rich in mineral wealth
yet undeveloped, traversing a region
where a railroad may be easily con
structed, and where a railroad, for a
large portion of the distance, has al
ready been provided lor and is in
course of construction. A railroad
from Cincinnati to the town ofH ,
in Highland county, is already in
progress of construction, and from
the town of H -to the mouth of
the Kanawha, some 70 or SO miles
of the distance, a charter for a rond
obtained from the Legislature of Ohio
is already in existence, and the citi
zens along the line as indicated
through large meetings recently held,
stand ready to take up stock and fill
up the gap to Gallipnlis, some four
miles from the mouth of the Kana
wha, whenever the people of Virgin
ia shall show that they are ready to
push their Central road to the Ohio.
We may look upon it, therefore, as
a railroad already provided for,
and we may say at once that the
road is contemplated to be from
Richmond to Cincinnati. It is whol
ly immaterial whether the road
strikes the Ohio at Guyandotte or at
Kanawha, Ohio is pledged to take
up the work on her own shore,
whether it terminates at one point
or the other, and to push it forward
to the citv of Cincinnati. Kentucky
is also widely awake to her interests
on this subject.
-I have had some correspondence
in reference to this matter, with citi
zens of Kentucky, and they are agi
tating the question there of meeting
our road at the mouth of Sandy, or
wherever it may terminate, with a
railroad from Covington. There is
no question but that Kentucky and
Ohio both stand ready to push on
the works, and we need not there
fore regard it as one terminating on
the Ohio river. Contemplate the
amount of trade and travel which
will in all human probability be
thrown upon that line! Why, it
will be the nearest route from Cin
cinnati to New York or any of the
Northern cities. Cincinnati is near
er to Baltimore bv the Virginia Cen-
tral road than it is by the Wheeling
route, even with the Baltimore and
' s
Ohio Railroad pushed forward to
Cincinnati nearer by 105 miles!
The road striking the Ohio at Guy
andotte, or at Pt Pleasant, at the
mouth of the Kanawha, will pass
through some of the best regions ol
the State regions abounding in iron
ore and oiher elements of universal
wealth, and which the construction
of the road will at once develope.
The Grand Jury of Culpepper, Va.,
refused to present the persons who
broke open the jail some time last
summer and brought out a negro and
murdered him. The facts of the case
were published at the time. The
Staunton Spectator Says this reiusal
on Ihe part of the Grand Jury "is
calculated to excite almost as much
indignation and alarm as the outrage
itself." .
Another Speech. Hon. J. M.
Clayton lately attended a dinner ten
dered him by the Whigs of Dela
ware. His speech on the occasion
has been published. It i a masterly
vindication of Gen'l Taylor's admin
istration. -
Count ERjFHTiMo. The St. Louis
papers are informed of the arrest in
New York of persons engaged in
counterfeiting notes of. the State
Bank of Missouri. ..We suppose it is
from that quarter the spurious notes
have been scattered over the West.
Mr. Clay's Speech.
We noticed last week the fact that
Mr. Clay had addressed the Legisla
ture of Kentucky, and that the
Speech had been published. The fol
lowing is an extract from a letter to
one of the Lexington papers.
Speaking ef Mr. Clay's speech, the
rtttersaysf
He - pronounced: a glowing and
well deserved "eulogiurn upon the
character of President Fillmore, and
expressed the opinion that the Exec
utive would enforce the fugitive
siavo iaw,caiimg ir necessary, any
portion of the militia of the Union
into service for that purpose. The
compliment to Fillmore brought
down the most enthusiastic applause
from Whig and Democrat, ,
He ailuded to the formation of a
new party, which he denominated
the "Union Party;" and when he
had mentioned it, with a tone and
action I never can forget elevating
his proud old head erecting his fine
lorm, now somewhat bent, as the
snow bends the pine his eye beam
ing almost celestial fire, he rushed
towards the Speaker's chair, ex-
dming, "I am a member of that
Union partvf" Words unless they
could literally burn, are co vehicles
to paint that scene. Only those
who enjoyed the pleasure of seeing it
can ever have any idea of its charac
ter.
I thoueht the most pathetic part
of his effort was when disclaiming
any desire for office, he wrapped his
garments about him, and stepping
proudly about, he said, "I want no
office; no place ah yes," he ex
claimed, "I do want a place, a place
in your hearts!" It was said so mo
vinglyso sweetly so pathetically
that his bitterest opponents seated
immediately about, strong and cold
men, "unused to the melting mood,"
wept like children.

Death of the Dckf of Palm el-
la. -On the afternoon of October
12, the Duke of Palmelladied at Lis
bon. He was one of the last of the
statesmen of the beginning of this cen
tury who took part in the important
arrangements of the Congress at Vi
enna. By his good sense and infor
mation there, he gained in that As
sembly such a weight of influence
as was attached to no other Repre
sentative of so small a Power. Tal
leyrand was accustoaed to say that
his attachment to sound principles
and his graceful manners gave him a
commanding influence in its coun
cils. -
In Portugal he afterwards distin
guished himself as the statesman to
whose constitutional principles and
foresight was due the gift of a liberal
Constitution, which accompanied the
return ol the Koyal family from Bra
zil. In the subsequent difficulties of
Portugal, he was the leader of her
Liberal Statesmen, and although
rudely treated of late yeara by the
Government of Donna Maria 1, he
has never abandoned his devotion to
the real interests of that Government
or the Liberal party of Portugal.

NEW YORK, Nov. 21.
The steamer Crescent City, with
dates from San Francisco to the 16th,
arrived this evening with 350 passen
gers, $500,000 in the hands of pas
sengers and $1,100,000 on freight.
Tba cholera was raging terribly at
Port Royal and at Jamaica. ' 1000
had died in three weeks at Kingston,
and 600 in the interior. The news
of : the admission of California into
the Union was received with general
satisfaction.-' The news from the
mines is of a mixed description
wherever the streams have been
dammed a plentiful yield has been
the result, but several of the dams
have recently g'ven way, in conse
quence ol the rising of the waters,
and the labor of months has thus
been rendered fruitless. Gold-bearing
quaitz continues to be discover
ed, and this in the end ( will form the
great 'resource of the miners when
surface gold fails.
The news from the overland emi
grants is most distressing. It was
estimated that 20,000 persons were
behind the desert journeying to Cali
fornia, a large portion of whom were
destitute of provisions. . The chole
ra had broken out among the emi
grants, and was carrying them off
with dreadful rapidity. Ihe expe
diency of making a requisition on
the Collector of this port lor an ad
vance of $100,000 has been suggest
ed and it is probable the citizens
will resort to this means ot alleviat
ing the terrible distress of which the
accounts reach us day by day. The
resources oi" private benevolence are
exhausted, and it is but right the
government should afford assistance.
A report prevailed a lew days be
fore the sailing of the steamer that
the cholera had made its appearance
in San Francisco. This, however, is
positively contradicted by the city
papers. The people in large num
bers are leaving San Francisco, as
fast as thecan get away, on their
return to the United5tates.

Riotv-A serious riot took place on
Friday week, between two bodies of
laborers on the Pennsylvania railroad'
near Blairsville.
A pitched battle was deliberately re
solved upon the parties advanced,
armed with guns, pistols, clubs, &c.
At the first fire four fell dead, several
wounded, end some mortally. A charge
was then made and one of the parties
routed. At last dates the military were
ordered out, but none of the rioters had
been arrested. .
Habits of Jenny Lino. A per

that she is remarkably temperate in
all things, carefully avoiding all slim
ulents of every description. She is
an early riser, bathes every morning
regularly, winter and summer, exer
cises much in the open air. She al
ways dresses with a view to comfort
rather than show, religiously avoid
ing tight lacing. She partakes free
ly of the plainest food, using much
fruit. She attributes her uniform
good health to her temperate mode
of living," she seldom having occasion
lo consult a physician. ' "
Indiana Penitentiary.
We gather the following statisti
cal information relative to the Indi
ana State Prison, from the Louis
ville Democrat, of Thursday:
From September," 1822, op to the
present time, one thousand one hun
dred and thirty-six convicts have
been received at the State Prison.
Of this number, 545 have been dis
charged by expiration of sentence,
and 237 pardoned by the Govenor.
One hundred and twenty-one have
died , in piison. -Seventy-six made
their escape, and have never been
retaken. Thirteen were discharged
bv the Supreme Court.
' There are at this time 145 convicts
at the prison, busily engaged, do
ing the state good service.
The history of some of these crim
inals is strange enough, and would
afford richer lessons of life than all
the fictions and romances of the
age.
One, a feble old man, is now serv
ing out a sentence for larceny. His
name is Samuel Worle, and this is
the sixth time he has been sent there
for the same offense. Each theft was
of some trifling value, yet sufficient
to send him to the penitentiary,
where he has spent a large portion
of his life. He is now in the. last
stage of consumption, and will, ere
many days, be released from all
trouble, by the terminatian of an
unfortunate existence.
Swallows. A correspondent of
th Eve. Post sayr. "Some months
ago there appeared in your paper
two or three communications upon
the subject of swallows disappearing
undrr the water on the approach
ol cold weather; and lately meeting
the following extract in the course
of my reading, it occurred to me
to send it to you. It is from the
writings of Huet, a French author,
who died in 1721. He also mentions
an odd fact, which may be unknown
to you, for the truth of which, how
ever, I am not prepared to hold my
self responsible:
"Swallows in Sweden, at the ap
proueh of cold weather, plunge into
the lakes, and remain there asleep,
and buried under the ice, till the re
turn of spring. Then, awakened by
the returning heat, they leave the
water and resume their usual flight.
While the lakes are frozen, if the ice
be broken in certain places, which
appear darker than others, the swal
lows are found in great quantities,
cold, asleep, and half dead. It they
are taken out and warmed by the
hands, or before the fire, they soon
begin to exhibit signs of lile: they
stretch themselves out, shake them
selves, and soon fly away. In other
places, they retire into the caves,
and under the rocks. Between the
town of Caen and the sea along the
banks of the Orne, there are many of
these caverns, where, during the win
ter, clusters of swallows have been
found suspended, like bunches of
grapes, from the roof of the cavern.
The same thing has been long ago
observed in Italy"

The Reversion op Trade. We
learn that an order was sent a day or
two since, by one of the largest milling
establishments in this city to Cincinnati
for wheat. The order read thus: "At
present prices, purchase for United
States from 10.000 to 15,000 bushels of
wheat.' Should the order be filled, and
the grain shipped this will be truly a
reversion of trade. Last year, and for
several years previous, large quantities
of wheat and flour have been shipped
from this citv to the Ohio river, and last
season over 100,000 bushels must have
in that direction.

Treatment of Scarlet Fever'
Important Prescription. Dr.
Lindsly, of Washington city, in a
letter to the Boston Medical and
Chirurgical Journal, strongly recom
mends the mode of treatment of scar
let fever resorted to by Dr. Scheen
mann, physician to the King of Han
over. It is as follows, and exceed
iogly simple: '
"Treatment of Scarlet Fever
by Inunction. From the first day
of the illness, and as soon as we are
certain of its nature, the patient must
be rubbed morning and evening over
the whole body with a piece of ba-.
con, in sucn a manner .mat, wiui
the exception of the head, a covering
of fat is everywhere applied. In or
der to make this rubbing in somewhat
easier, it is best to take a piece oi ba
con the size of the hand, choosing &
part still armed with the nud, that
we may have a firm grasp. Oa tha
soft side of this piece slits are to be :
made, in order to allow the oozmz
out of the fat. The rubbing must
be thoroughly performed, and not,
too quickly, in order that the ikia;
may be regularly saturated with th,!
fat. The beneficial results of tha,
application are soon obvious; . witb
a rapidity bordering on magic, all,
even the most painful symptoms of.
the disease, are allayed: quiet sleep,
good humor, appetite returns, and!
there remains only the Impatience, to '
quit the sick room," - 1
