. . (Crln our absence, last week, isome over
zealous friend, gazotted: us for a soai in the
next Legislature of Ohio. It looks so well
in print that wo h.uve. concluded to lot it
stands-hoping that the people will feel as
hugely tickled about it as we were. If they
do, why ' we'll bd a their humble
servant. . ' . , . ,
(KtThb 4T8 .IX Pomehoy The 4th of
July was ceh brated in our town by the Sons
of Temperance In n stylo truly creditable to
their patiiotism. The nttendenco was very
large we hate heard it estimated at two
thousand. The table was spread in the
grove and everything went off pleasantly.
T. A. Plants, Esq. delivered the address,
which Is highly spoken of in all quarters.
We were not present, being absent from
home and cannot therefore speak of partic
ulars. We expected ah account of the fes
tivities of the day, from some one who was
present, but have not received anything. .
f&" The proceedings of the Pioneer meet
ing in Rutland onthu,4tli will bo found In
another column. We. learn that this gath
ering of the fathers of tho west, was one of
unusual interest, not only to the venerable
men themselves, but to the younger portion
who have since come in to erjoy tho fruits
of their early labors. We are glad thus to
see these gatherings of the gallant spirits of
" lung syne" they are a race of men (est
passing awsy, of whom we cannot learn too
much. , ' ,
frOur thanks are due our particular
friend Wm. P. HalLiday, clerk of the Gen.
Gainet, for river papers. We hope to see
the Gaines on the upper river soon.

OCtThb Tickbt. It is with no ordinary
feelings of gratification that wo lay before
our readers in this week's paper the result
ol the labors of tho Whig State Convention
Never have we been presenfin a convention
where more good feeling was exhibited, or
a more hopeful aspiration existed as to the
final result. The Convention was cotnpo
sed of the most discreet, moderate, piudent
and sagacious men of the party men who
were intent upon presenting to the People a
ticket that should, aside from its party afnn
Ities, recommend itself to support by the in
ninsic excellence of the individuals compo
sing it and they have admirably succeeded
' It is unnecessary for us to speak of the
merits of the Gubernatorial nominee, to the
peoplo of Meigs county, where Samuel F,
Vinton is so well known. For a quarter of
a century he has represented us in the Na'
tional Councils, with ah ability which has
won for him a reputation national In extent
and .honortblo in character. No man in
Congress commanded . such universal re
spect, or exercised so large and bineficia'an
influence! His olectibri; 'of Which we have
no doubt, will, mark an era in the history pf
OJuo. Hi Wise forecast; prudent manage
ment, and masterly statesmanship will place
Ohiu still 'higher in ihe?.ifcale "of Stales, and
be referred to as a' mtidtf.Yor, future adminr.

' Gen.' EckLev, the nominee for Lieutenant

We ask the People of Ohio to bear this in
mind. A judiciary, thus selected cannot tail
command the confidence and support of a
free and intelligent people.
But one thing now remains to badori!
to elect our ticket. . We can do it, if forget..
tinir minor considerations, we go to . work
heartily and energetically... V
The nomination of Gen. Scott for the
Presidency' is but the . embodiment ; of the
wishes or the People of Ohio. The Heto
of tTiroe wars will defeat any man who can
be pitted against him, and will be a tower of
strength in the coming contest.' ' ,

A grand Indian Council of theChippewas
has been called by the agent of that tribe, to
meet at La Pointe on the 10th inst. The
object is supposed to be to induce the Indians
10 remove to Sandy Lake, an interior point,
difficult of access, and inconvenient for the
Indians.- They have hitherto received their
annuities at La Pointe, and the trading with
them was, till - lately, monopolized by a fur
company, but smaller traders had found
their way there, and were interfering with
the monopoly of the company. The Lake
Svperior Journal apprehends the object of
the movers of tho removal inland is to get
beyond these traders, and again restore the
trade of the tribe to ihe company.

A descruciive fire occurred at Archangel

houses and two churches. .
DiscovEBt in Egypt. A most Interest
ing discovery has been mndj in Egypt. It
is known that there exists in Mount Zuba-
rah, situated on an island in the Red Sea, a
mine of emeralds which was formerly work
ed by the pachas of Egypt, but abandoned
in the last years of the reign of Mehemut
Alt. An Jbnglish company have solicited
and recently obtained authority to resume
the working of this mine, which is believed
to be still rich with precious stones. Mr.
Allan tho engineer of the company, while
directing some important excavations in this
place, has discovered at a .great depth traces
of an ancient gallery, which must evidently
be referred 10 the most remote antiquity.
Upon removing the rubbish, they found tools
and ancient utensils, and a sione upon which
is engraved a hieroglyphic inscription, now
partly defuced.. This circumstance proves
the iruih of the opinion expressed by Bolzo
ni, on the strength of other indications, that
this mine was worked in ancient limes.
The nature and form of the implements
discovered, and the configuration of the
gallery, the plan of which has been readily
traced, provo most conclusively that the an
cient ecvptisns were skilful engineers. It
seems from examination of the stone which
has been discovered, that the first labors in
the mine of Zabarah were .commenced in
the reign of Sesostris the Great or Ramses
Sesosiris, who, according to the most gen
erally received opinions, lived about the year
1650 before Christ, and who is celebrated
by his immense conquests, as' well as by the
innumerable monuments with which he cov
