Thero has been much less political feel
ing in the Legislature during the session
just closed than is usual. The truth is, the
war between the factions of Locofocoism
has become far more bluer, vindictive and
personal than it has ever been bejween the
Whlijs and Locofocos. The elements of
this strife have been brewing for years
The accession of a Locofoco President has
sharpened the appetites and excited the
hnpes of ihe various foctions for the spoils.
The effort ni secure a Cubinet appointment
for M EDA BY brought matters lo an open
rupture. The "throat cutting time" has
come, and war to the knife is now the
word. All these have turned the channel
of feeling in a new direction.
The Legislaturo of California is now in
session at Vallijo, but it is expected thai it
will not remain there, as there is some mis
understanding between that body and ihe
proprietor of the place. Gen. Vallejo.

settled during the session. -
Why thev Did it. The Angelica R
porter, alluding to the conviction of Allen
and Palmer, in Allegheny county, N. York,
for placing obstructions on the Erie road,
says: "Straetra as it may seem, the facts
elicited by the evidence showed conclusive
ly that there waa no animosity existing on
the part of the two individuals against the
company, or that there was the least cause
of complaint against the company, but thai
it was a preconcerted plan to throw the ex
press train from the track for the horrible
purpose of robbing the passengers in the
general melee. Ihis was proved on the
Bank Defalcation in Philadelphia.
A delineation to a large amount has been
discovered in the Bunk of Pennsylvania.
I he former, or one ol the present bookkeep
ers, allowed an outside friend to overdraw
his account to a large amount.
Tho amount ascertained to be overdrawn
ftom the bank of Penni ylvania. through the
negligence of one of its officers, is said to be
194,000, which will be reduced by various
securities to about $40,000. The individu
al alleged to have overdrawn, it is under
stood, possesses very considerable means,
so that nearly the whole amount may pus
sibly be recovered. -
The Ohleans Fortune. It appears the
nutt proceeds of the Orleans property, now
thai all the sa'es have been perfected, is, in
round numbers, thirty-seven millions of
francs. This will leave each of the children
of Louis Phillippe worth only about a mill
ion of dollars apiece. The grandchildren,
of course, will divide their deceased parent's
share. Consequently, ihe young Cruiu of
Paris, who would now be King of the French
il the Orleans dynasty hud continued, will
receivH but half a million, his younger
brother taking tho other half. Circumstan

The spring term of Court was hold in
Gallia county last week Judge Nash pre
siding. The Journal says,' "the docket
presents rather a lean appearance for law
yers it has not been so small for years
and there are but few criminal cases for
trial." The Grand Jury returned four in
dictments, all minor offences.

, Railhoad Meeting. The Stock all
Taken. On Friday evening, an adjourned
meeting was held at the Court-house. The
report of the committee showed that but
about $1,000 was lacking of ihe requisite
amount for Sugar Run, and $1,900 for
Kerr's Run. Whereupon Mr. Bosworth
pledged himself for the first-named amount,
and Mr. L. S. Nye for the latter. Mr.
Hortnn left for Cincinnati on Saturday with
ihe books, and ere long we may expect to
see the engineers here, with their, imple
ments. It is now time the friends of the
different rouios were laying their claims be
fore the officers of tho road.
Temperance Legislation,
The State Journal of Thursday last, pub
lished in full the miserable "Act" of our
late Legislature on the subject, which is
severely, "but justly criticized by a corres
pondent. The article is too long for our
columns this week; but we shall give it a
place in our next. Such a contemptible
subterfuge such a miserable excuse for not
passing the Maine Law. is about what we
expocted of them. The people never asked
for sucl) a luw they do tiot want ii, and
unless we are greatly mistaken, they will
send some men to Columbus next winter
lo repeal ii as soon as possible. It is infi
nitely worse jjian no law at all on tho sub
ject. It is apparently legislating in favor of
temperance; hile fn reality, it is legislating
for the protection of liquor sellers.
"The good people of Pomeroy are hold
ing meetings and soliciting subscriptions for
a branch ruilroad to connect their town with
the Hillsboro' roud. They exhibit a praise
worthy and commendable spirit in this te-
spect, and we sincerely hope tliey may sue
ceed in their enterprise but we regret to
see occasionally unnecessary flings at the
Marietta and Cincinnati road. We cannot
see the necessity of this course, and nre led
to believe thai it is in conseqoei.ee of cer
tain outside pressure, ruther than the prompt
ings of their own inclinations and tastes.
There is room fur all of us, gentlemen, and
if your road can be constructed we wish you
ull manner of success. This spirit of tear
ing down one interest to build up another has
already gune loo far, and the sooner it is
abandoned the better will it be for ull par
lies." Athens Messenger.
"The good people of Pomeroy" doubtless
feel extremely obliged to iheir Athenian
neighbors for their good wishes, and desire
to assure them that "the promptings of their
own inclinations and tustes" would never
cuuse them to indulge In 'unnecessary flings'
at any enterprise much less, if the 'flings'
aforesaid were "calculated to injure in ihe
slightest degree the prosperity of iheir much
esteemed neighbors. Nor can wo consent
to occupy the offensive position, having ever
acted on the defensive. Our citizens have
exhibited 'a praiseworthy and commendable
spirit,' and have succeeded in their .under
taking; yet not without encountering aomo
opposition from individuals connected with
ihe Marietta load. The 'flings' referred to
may have been unnecessary, but they weru
by no means unprovoked, if we Bay nothing
at all of 'outside pressure.' We commend
ihe concluding sentence of the above ex
tract lo the candid attention of the Directors
of the Marietta company, to whom alone it
is applicable- ...
River Items. The River continues at a
good naviguble siuge, fur the largest boats.
The Pittsburg and Cincinnati packets con
tinue iheir regular weekly trips, and are re
markably regular in their time of passing
this point. Occasionally one arrives a little
loo early, but seldom too late. Messrs.
Wynne, Weaver, Hampton, ft, al l will ac
cept bur thanks for river favors, , ; -'
' The Untor Line, from Wheelinjto Lou
isville, have now five boqts running.' The
"Baltimore" passed down for, tho first time
on Sunday. .The beats in this, line may
justly be called "floating palaces." They
are the most beautiful boats tn external ap
pearancu we have yet seen,' and we learn
their interior arrangements tire nut excelled
by any boats on the, river. .The iofQceri are
pmicularly llicd-'and attentive, and never
lorget ta editors. ' They will all please aa
cept our thanks. Long may you' wave.
It is exceedingly unpleasant to find fault" .
with, or reprimand one's friends. But our? '
position sometimes demands this of us, and)
we never shrink from duty. Last Tbars
day morning, the 'Buckeye' cqme up to our1
wharf under an unusual heai of steam, con--siderably
before her time. It was generally
understood that she was racing wiih tha' .
David White The Cincinnati papers sar
that between Cincinnati and Maysvilla, tha
Buckeye made the quickest trip on records
The Wheeling Intelligencer, of Saturday,
has the following, in reference to it: . .
The telegraph sent from Pittsburg to the
Buckeye at Cincinnati, on Wednesday, wasr
1 uke no freight, and beat the David White
up, by -;" and every stick of wood put-
in her fire was first soaked in oil. W e state
this, knowing its truth. The David White
came at her usual pace, heavily loaded.- -
I his is not the first time such petty advan
tages have been taken, nor do we suppose'
1t will bo tho lust, and we therefore Bpeak of
it; but in all kindness we will state tnat the
Pittsburg boats will make nothing by it The
Union Line boats were built to do business,
not for racing, and they will not race, but
will run so as to make thenars regularly
complying with every requisition of ihe lawf.
but if the Pittsburg line is anxious, they will
run one boat against any the Pittsbttrghers-
may select Irom -their line, Tor 51U.UUU a
side, or they will run each 'of theUnion
Line boats agaimt the same number of Pitts
burg line boats on"ihe same terms. , Tbey
will run but for once; for their boats were
built for work, not for foolishness." ' -
We know nothing of the truth or falsity
of the statements contained In the above.
Some allowance, we think, should be made
for the strife between the two cities, and the
two lines, uotn lines, nowever, are censur
able, just in proportion to the encouragement
they give to racing. No boat has any right
to endanger ihe lives and property of others.
If the boats are determined to race, howev
er, we hope the public will havo timely
warning to avoid mem. inree or lour
classes of persons might be blown up, with
little or no loss to the community; and if
none others were on board, we would care
very little how soon en explosiou occurred.
These are: 1. The officers and owners of
the boats, or as many of them as encourage
racing. 2. Sporting gentlemen, who bel on
the boats. 3. Editorial deadheads, who are
continually puffing "fast boats" until they
bring about an explosion, ami then turn
right about and curse the officers lor racing.
We do not oppose proper speed in traveling;
we would not object to traveling a hundred
miles an hour, provided ii could be done le
gitimately and with safety. But we do ob
ject to traveling fifteen miles an hour on a
boat which can only run fourteen with per
fect safety.
It may seem strange to many of our
readeis to hear that something resembling
a panic in money matters has recently
alarmed the heavy capitalists and commer
cial men thtoughoui thu country. Ve say,
it may seem strange, considering the im
mense influx of gold from California, w hich
so greatly exceeds any thing ever before
known, or ever. dreamed of in the history
of the nation. Yet it is even so. The com
mercial journals all over the land speak of
a heuvy pressure in the money market, par?
ticularly in the eastern cities. ' These jour
nals differ widely as to the cause and
remedy. It may not be modest in so
humble a jourrmlist as oursulf, to express
an opinion on tho subject. Like all others,
who have considered ihe subject, we enter
luin an opinion, which, at the risk of being
laughed at, we will veptur.o to express as
briefly as possible. 1st. then, there haa
been too much speculation, or, in plain
English gambling-" in stocks, in real estate.
In merchandize in every thing; and alto
gether too little useful labor. 2. The little
encouragement given to home manufactures,
and the immense shininent of coin to foraisn
( v
countries, for articles which could as easily
have been purchased at home. - 3. Too
much luxury. These we believe to be the
principal causes. The remedies will sug
gest themselves upon reflection;' ' v ;!
We do not believe the panic will seriously
affect all classes. . There Is an abundance
n - I. .. , e - ii - j? ' .. i !
oi casn capital lor an ordinary ousiness
purposes. Those who practice industry and
economy, and avoid speculation, may laugh
at panics for some time to come. ,.
A panic will come, nevertheless, which
will be seriously felt by all classes. . When
it will come wo will sot pretend to say
probably not for two or three years.'. An
esteemed friend, who is familial .with the
subject, in a private letter, cautions against'
speculation, and concludos by saying:
"Wo be to him who purchases In '53 arid
'54, lo pay In '65 and '56," The price of
all kinds of property will increaso, for two
or three years, speculation will run mad,
our foreign debt will continue to accumu
late; and then pay-day will come '
"For come it must '
, And come it will for V, tkat,'- -
and with it will come a panic, such as' we.
have never yet ' known. Property of all;
kin Js will decline, and fortunate will b
iha.t man who has "made hay while the sur.
was shining." ' . ' .
