Wo clip tlio following .article"' from the
Lancaster Gazette. There is force in the
remarks. Rrud it, ponder over it, and nci
flpon its suggestions :

is better calculated for a high degree of pros
perity in the way of manufacturing enter
prise or needs the fostering care of Govern
ment more, than this, composed as ii is of
Fairfield, Perry, Hocking, Vinton, Athens
nml Meigs, all of them containing the best
facilities for manufacturing purposes. We
have abundance of iron Ore, can have any
number of Salt Wells, and hive any quanti
ty of Coal. How much better would it be
for Fairfield to have a market down the val
ley and at home, instead of paying heavy
freights and churges to transport it to Eng
land or even to the Eastern States ! And
yet wo are to be represented in Congress by
a member who will oppose a Tariff designed
to build up American Manufactures and is
also the opponent of Internal Improvements
of any character by the General Govern
ment. The people of this District, if they
consulted their own interests, would vote
for Mr. Welch, who would labor to have the
Government to lake some measures to foster
and advance American Enterprise and Amer
ican Industry; Think of theso things, Vo
ters of the 11th District. '
Railroad Meeting at Nelsonvlllc.
We learn that there was a general attend
ance of the people at the railroad meeting,
at Nclsonville, on Saturday last. Tho ob
ject of theneeting was to discuss the expe
diency of building a railroad from Columbus,
by way of Lancaster, Nelsonville, &c, to
Pomeroy, on the Ohio river. This is de
signed to open up to market tho vast coal
and iron deposits of the, Hocking Valley.
Speeches were made by the Hon. Thomas
EwiNa.of Lancaster; William Nbal, Esq..
of Columbus; Messrs. ejomers, tueton,
&o., of Athens county, and others. The
vast advantages that such a roud would be
to Columbus, and other points of the State,
were made manliest to all.
Tho Hocking Valley is celebrated for its
immense deposits oi coai, wnicn ure tne
finest and most abundant in tho West. A
direct communication from Columbus to
these immense mines, by railroad, is a con
summaiion devoutly to bo wished by all our"
business men, as well as citizens generally.
The price of coal would bo materially re
duced, and could be supplied in great abund
ance, and at all times of the year. Numer
ous factories could be carried on here that
are not now in existence, to great advantage.
In short, the advantages, of opening a mar
ket to that vast deposit of fuel and iron are
so numerous and palpablo that the persons
on the route need no illustration to establish
The great practical question is, havo the
people of the route the means to build the
road ? . if not, can they induce capitalists to
tuko stock in it? It is our conviction that
the road will pay amply as a cash invest
ment. Out, to Columbus it has a more im
portant bearing.. It will add vastly to jour
wealth, population and business. It will
open up an avenue of trade that will bring
uncounted wealth to our people. It is sim

who pay the taxes, will bear this in mind.
We venture the asseition that, under the
contract price now agreed upon, the same
amount of printing would not cost over
tuei,ly thousand dollars. The difference
has gone to reward .i partizan, who has been
denounced by men of high standing in his
own puny, as utterly unprincipled and cor
rupt. We ask the tax puycrs of Ohio to re
member these things. We ask them to note
the amou nl paid for printing, when it was
seized in open contempt of the constitution,
by the Statesman and its tools, and also to
note the amount that the same work will cost
ai the coming session, when it will be done
under the law, and in obedience to the con
stitution. The difference between the two
is the amount plundered from the people, to
pay a desperate, unprincipled partizan. 0.
Something for Invalids. An eminent
physician of New Orleans, Dr. Cnrlwricht,
has communicated to the Boston Medical
and Surgical Journal, as an article entitled
"The Sugar House cure for Bronchial,
Dyspeptic and Consumptive" Complaints."
ii is tinted that a residence lri a sugar-house,
during the rolling season, far surpasses any
other means of restoring flesh, strength and
health, lost by ohrontc ailments of the chest,
threat or Stomach. The rolling season is
the harvest, when the canes are cut, the
juice expressed and converted into sugar.
In Louisiana it commences about the mid
dle of October, and ends at Christmas, but
is sometimes protracted into January. Dr.
C. says tho vapor is most agreeable and
soothing to the lungs, and in his own case
entirely removed a distressing cough. He
stood for hours in the sugar-house inhaling
tho vapor, and drinking occasionally a glass
of the hot cane-juice. This is a fact inter
esting to invulids.
News From India in a WEEKlThe
electric telegraph, which connects London
with Paris, and which will soon connect it
with Lyons, Chainbrev, Turin, and Gonoa,
is to be prolonged to La Spezzia, by the Sar
dinian Government. From that nort the
Submarine Company, it is said, is to sink
an electtic cable to the island of Gorgona,
and frcm thenco another to Iks tin. Tho
French Government will then coniinuo the
line by land at its own expense, to Ajaccio,
and the narrowest point of the Straits of
Bonifacio, where a cable fourteen killome
tres in length will, at the expense of the
company, establish a communication with
Sardinia, which the Piedmontese Govern
ment will continno to Cagliari. M. Bonolli,
tho author of this plan, has proposed to the
Submarine Company to prolong the cable to
Tunis, whence France would conduct wires
to Bougie and Algiers, while England would
conduct others to Tripoli, Alexandria, Cairo
and Suez. By this means Algiers would be
brought within a few seconds of Paris, and
news from India might reach London in lit
tle more than a week.
