I hereby certify that the foregoing is cor
reetly copied from the original roll deposi
ted in this office. .
Secretary of State.
Auditor's Office, Meigs Co. Ohio,
Pomeroy, April 18, 1851.
1 comfy the foregoing 'Constitution" to
be correct, according to the copy furnished
County Auditor,
For the Meigs Co. Telegraph.
Ma. Editor: I have noticed in the col
umns of tho Tulegroph some very specula
live notions in relation to the destinv of
Pomeroy and its vicinity. Picturing to the
mind its plunk roads, rail roads, stratums
and sub-strutums, coal, salt, and subtcrrane
on cities &c., making in the aggregate "The
place what is a place."
I am not objecting to those fanciful pic
tures, but am of the opinion that we ought
to pay moro attention to the moro import
am maiiers, wnicn atlects our present as
well as our future destiny. We have to do
with mind &s well ns matter, and much
mora depends on the siato of morals than
on tho extent of om coal roina, or urrorgth
and quantity ol our sail waior,
From ihe fuel of these nateral advan
tages, it is now, and always will be our lot,
to be a community composed of ciiizens
Trom nearly all parts of the world, speak
ing different languages, having imbibed dif
lurent religions and political notions, and
consequently some of them are apt to view
our laws and customs as they did those of
their own country, as operating only as
system of oppression. Therefore it is noi
only the business but the duty of every
true citizen, to aid in disseminating the true
principles of law and morais; teaching that
society based on any other foundation must,
in the very nature of ihings fail to accom
plish the most desirable and beneficial re

suuo. rur a is impossible mat any man
should, in the issue, bo a loser in doing his
duty, lor while he is faiihlul in the discharge
oi evory duty, he is most effocually con
suiting his own happiness as well as that
lie only who in all cases does what he
ought to do, is the perfect man, the btit
citizen, or lho true christian. One of the
laws of our naturo Is, that guilt makes
man at variance with himself; he sees and
knows that he is not what hd'aught to be,
and ieels that he has fallen from the disnitv
of his nature, and sold his real worth for a
thing of no valuo. Yea, more, he feels on
abiding consciousness of demerit, and can
not avoid the diead of meeting with its re-

better established by experience than thai
ihey ho in opposiii in to strong temptation,
by a noble effort, have mainioined their in
tegrity, have realized the greatest amount
of happiness, and honor, attainable on
earth, and their positions are the most to be
envied. The man firmly established in
this position, feels a cc nsciousness of in
ward worth, which gives strength lo his
heart, stability and firmness to his purposes,
enabling him to realize that amidst the most
severe conflicts are to be found the brightest
gems ond the most lasting honors. There
fore lot us all adopt the favorite motto ol
old Zack "Do jour duty ond let conse
quences take care of themselves."
03" The puzzling name of "Tariff" is de
rived from the town of Tarira, ot the mouili
of lho Straits of Gibralier. Ii was lho last
stronghold which tho Moors disputed with
ilio Christians ; and when the former held
possession of both the pillursof Hercules, It
washere that ihey levied contributions foi
vessels entering the Mediterranean, whence

"wake up"ii;
The public seem to forget that four weeks
since our office was burned, and we' sub
jected to an outlay of 8600 10 repair the
lossj ' We wanf ftoneyj krid What is inpre -i
WE WILL HAVE IT. ' 1 1 '
03" Anotues Firs. On Thursday night
last about 10 o'clock our town was alarmed
by another cry of fire, which was discovered
to be in the Foundry of R.' R Grant.
The fire soon spread to the adjoining engine
shop, entirely.; consuming both buildings.
The Foundry and Engine shop were both
occupfed by John C. Deprw, whose entire
stock of patterns', tools, lathes, 6ic, were
destroyed. . Sevsial . engines were in the
shop, some completed and. others in differ
ent' singes" of progress, which have "been
greatly damaged.' His loss cunnot fall' be
low $4000.. No insurance on the building
or contents. . Although confined to the one
establishment,' ret it has boon most disas
trous in its effectt. Mr. Depew had work
ed himself into a lucrative business,' after
several years struggling against adverse cir
cumstances. and was fast gaining a position
of competence and profit. Mr. Grant, too,
has been most singularly unfortunate.' But
a few years ago he had a tannery burned
down on the same premises, and had not yei
emirtly recovered from his losses ere this
double calamity has fallen upon him. It
is hard thus to see the . accumulation
swept years away in a moment, leaving us
at middle age to recommence the struggle
of life anew , ,
y tho active exertions of our ciiizens
(ome of them) the adjoining buildings were
saved. We say, some, becnuso at this, as
well as the former fire, wo saw crowds of
hale, hearty, robust men, stand with their
hands In their puckeis, looking carelessly
on, while- dulicato women labored and toiled
in the effort to extinguish tho flames, and
would not even so much as get out of the
way, but obstruct the efforts of others by th
obtrusion of ihsir superfluous carcasses.
There soems to be a fatal inaction among
our people in relation to securing a pioper
fire apparatus. With n a month fire has
destroyed over $30,000 worth of property
yet no step is taken to avert such calamities
in future. Will they not do something
We can get up a tremendous excitement if
a worthless, debauched, drunken vagabond
is found committing some act which his de
based instincts compel him to but to the
protection of the hard earned fruits of labor
we turn a leaden ear, while we join full cry
in the chorus of commiseration for ihe mor
al condition of some abandoned vagrant,
who is unab'e to distinguish between the
moral attendants of a funeral procession or n
fox-chase. It Is to be hoped that the day of
such ihings is past, ond that Pomeroy, at
least, will do something for the protection of
itself the preservation of the proceeds of
its industry, and enterpilse. ,
03" The Buckeye Stale and Messenger on
last week's race excited the highest enthusi
asm among the partizans. As they passed
Pomeroy our boys brought out old ' Rough
and Ready," who talked as of old most el
oquently. The following is the time to
Buckeye State, 35 hours 30 minutes.
Messenger, 39 4
Barnum, was thus completely hoaxed for
once. Sharp as ho has the reputation of be
ing, he is not well posted up in Western
03-Pomeroy, is again on the advance
business is t eviving improvements are in
contemplation and proseeution, which w'len
perfected will add greatly to the prosperity
of the city. By and bye when a bank is lo
cated here, under tho new law, we shall bid
good bye to towns, and step into the compa
ny of Cincinnati, Columbus, Cleveland,.
Dayton, &c.
03"PEorLE's Circus. By reference to,
on advertisement in another column, it Will
bo seen that the Circus, with clowns, horsel,
ponies, tumblers, actors, dec. dec, will be I
town next week. Great tunes for ihe bo
and the rest of mankind. ;
03" Kerr of the Cincinn&ti passed up the
river on Sunday we know this from; the
fact that'our devil had hard work to bring
iwlMD..ihai.bundLeiif.iuipprslefLto ihe -'Esq,"
of this establishment. Mr. K. isnn "Boss."
03" The Board of Aldermen of Boston,
have refused the use of raneuil Hall to
Daniel Webste.i. Nothing in the onnals
of political warfare in this country can
equal the vindictlveness with which tho in
furiated fanatics of the country are pursuing
the great statesman of New England. How
execrable a thing is fanatacism.
The same Board of Aldeimcn refused a
sjiort timeogo, to invite President Fillmore
to visit Boston. A short time beforo Geo.
Thompson, the British Abolitionist, ond
Fied. Douglass, the negro libeller of the
memory of Washington, were greeted by
this same Board with all the demonstration
of filial regard, and permitted to fulminate
treason against the Union and blassphemy
against God, within the hallowed walls of
the cradle of liberty. Con such men longer
ware the garb of Philanthropy.
03" 1 1 was reported by telegraph on Sat
urday that Mi.Sumnfr had and had not been
e'ected U. S. Senator from Massachusetts.
Wo inclined to the opinion that the "had
not" R'pori is ilio true one.
03" Ptmrs. We have noticed for some
timei at the Court house in this placoi a now
style of pump, which is called "Newman's
Double Acting Force aid Lift Pump,"
which wa think surpasses' anything of the
kind now In use combining the properties of
the Lift and Force pumps, with the greatest
simplicity and durability of construction.
vTJhe pump exhibition j)as a cylinder 2)
inches in diameter, and 6 inches stroke of
piston, can bo worked by a child of five years
old, and discharges 11 gallons of water in
30 strokes about half a minute. By attach
ing a hose two feet long you can convert it
into a fire engine capable of extinguishing
a fire on the roof of any building or by
lengthening it to suit lho purpose, it can be
made ihe most valuable auxiliary in garden
cultivation, enabling the owner to water his
garden at all times without the least trouble
in draining or carrying water for the'pur
pose It being a complete irrigator. In fact
it is the ne plus ultra in pumps.
Accident. On Wednesday evening last,
as the steamer Messenger was passing Pome
roy, with Jenny Lind on board, and while
some of our people were engaged in firing
i salute in honor of lho Nightingale, a
juantity of powder ignited, while passing it
to the mouth of the cannon, severely inju
ring three young men engaged in firing-
burning their arms, breasts and faces in a
shocking manner. The persons burned
were Josiah Pratt, Wm. M'Cain. . and
Valentine Inoleiiabdt. We learn howev
er, that they are now considered out of dan
ger.- ' ; '

03" Pomeroy and Portsmouth Pack'
ets. We believe that there aro two steam
ers running between this place and Ports
mouth, bo it is said in the papers below.
Persons however, who read the ' Telegraph"
usually travel on the Ohio and Lady Byron,
because they know from tho advrtisements
that they are engaged regulurly in the busN
ness. Not being advised by the owners ol
the other boats, we are unable to give their
days of leaving port.
ICTJENNy biNO would only sins one

ihu fisherman wiih bear's hut. Jenny tho
that their way of showing ihir affection was

have been greeted, in suh a manner as a

As the bird tn iis sheltering nest,
Where the stonnson the hills is abroad,
So her spirit hath flown from this world of unrest,
To repose' on the bosom of God I
Where the sorrows of earth never more
May fling o'er its brightness a stain;
Where, in rapture and love, it shall ever adore,
With a gladness uumingled with painj
And its thirst shall be slaked by the waters which
Like a river of light, from the throne of the Kixu!
There is weeping on earth for the lost;
There is bowing in grief to the ground;
But rejoicing and praise 'mid the sanctified host,
For a spirit in Paradise found I
Though brightness hath passed from the earth,
Yet a star is new-born in the sky, '
And a soul hath gone home tethe land of its birth,
Where are pleasures aud fulness of joy !
And a new harp is strung, and a new song is given
To the breezes that float o'er tho gardens of
Heaven I
