ANNEAR'S Unrivalled Japan Paste Premium BLACKING, for sale by ROBERTS & W ATKINS, nov20tf at th Middleport Drug Store- "For the Telegraph." Mb. Editor: In accordance with notice previously given, our little village wits fa vored, on the 3d and 4th inst., with an ex hibition, conducted by Mr. J. C. S. Miller, teacher of the public school in this place. The performance was held in the M. E. Church, and was opened with prayer by the Rev. E. Sibley, after which the exibi tors. thirty-four in number, introduced them selves to the audience in a song composed for the occasion by J. B. Maybery. The programme for both evenings numbertd fif ty pieces, consisting of original orations, es says, comedies, tragedies, with a large va riety of pieces selected for the occasion. . Immediately following the introductory song, was an able and eloquent address by J. B. Maybery upon "the advantageous necessity of establishing a perfect system of educating." Succeeding the address, was an "epologue" by C. Lallanco and H. Wel don; it was admirably performed. The clear and correct style in which a dialogue, entitled "Disobedience to Parents," was spoken by M. Philson and M. Lallance two small girls was unsurpassed during the whole performance. A song by Flora Sibley, entitled the "Snow Storm" wm well received, and a credit to the performer.-- A dialogue by M. V. Lasher and Mrs. Mil- er, "Mutiny at the Nore," was well per formed, although a very difficult piece. A ecture by L. Philson , from the words "Early to bed and early to rise, &c," was delivered in a very creditable manner. 'The child's Thoughts" a song by Eletha Smith tid F. Sibley was well received, although the first named performer was seriously unwell, and consequently unable to sing in her usually firm style. The ad mirable manner in which a dialogue upon 'Exhibitions" was performed will cause Wm. Hovey, and C. Campbell, long to be remembered by their bearers. The dia logue "Nolnes Volens," by M, Ellis and W. Myres, was "done up" in a style which displayed rare talent for pieces of that char acter. The "Rag-gatherer" a very diffi cult piece was performed by I. Angel, F. Petrel, R. Ellis, M. Elliott and A. Cnmpbell; comment upon it is useless as it must be heard to be appreciated. "Hob and Nob," a dialogue overflowing with ly wit, was well .performed, and, well received. Tie "Country School," an original burlesque by Wm. Myrts, was one of those side-splitting affairs to which it is our good fortune occassional! to listen.1 The scholars cer tainly performed their part most admirably. An- original song by J. L .Wallace, per formed by that gentleman' and Mist R. El lis, rMiCted IrJ glowing colon the 'sorrows "ON SCO VNttt Y to a.'illy young maid," and visa versair-' A dialogue entitled .Vlguoranca, and Will fulness' one of those- cutting satires upon "old fogyism" with which we occasionally meet, was well ! performed, by C. Hopkins and Wm. Myers. J, W, Brown favored with the "lone Starry Hours," a song which all lovers of music delight to hear. "Charity," a dialogue by F. Pinnell arid H. Lallance is a fine piece, and was well performed. L. Cross and II. Lallance done themselves credit by their performance of the dialogue entitled "The Peace-maker." A burlesque "county court' was held dur ing the perforraance. The judge, T, Smart; the counsel for "persecution" and defense, J. L. Waller and J. B. Maybery, maintained a degree of gravity impossible to be main tained by the audience, while listening to the testimony of . "Ike Budd, (A. Wilman) and the extempore ejaculations of H. Wel don. 'Woman's Rights a dialogue by M. and H. Smith and.R. Ellis, was performed in a style very creditable to those engaged in it. Wade Cross done himself honor as a 'Village Lawyer and 'Doctor in spite of himself. Wm. Loomis, a boy not yet in liis 'teens, and the youngest male performer on the stage, is deserving of the highest praise, as one of the best speakers in our place. C. Hopkins, a young man with promis'ng powers of oratory, did himself honor in the oration upon 'The Signs of the Times.' An original comedy, by J. B. Maybery, entitled How do you like it deservedly received great applause. . 'Misther Patrick McGlar ney (Maybery) brought down the house. Mr. Maybery's labors are certainly appre cialed fey the public. The performance was closed with an anginal tragedy by J. L. Waller, which was well received, and which reflects great credit upon its author. On the first evening of the exhibition original essays were read by the following ladies: C Lallance upon Religion; F. Petrel upon 'The Selection of Associates;' R- Ellis up on the 'Pleasures of Memory;' M. Smith upon 'Nature and H. Smith upon 'Filial Affection.' These essays were well written, displaying fine talents for composition and a pretty thorough knowledge of the subjects upon which tbey treated. . During the sco- ond evening original orations were delivered by T. Smart and B. Sibley, with an address by J. H. Lawhead upon 'Prosrress These efforts Were an honor to their authors, evin cing considerable research, and good pow ers of ananging their ideas upon subjects with which they are acquainted. The wholo performance was enlivened with mu- sio by l rot s, lirown, liradsbaw, liaren and Wells, to whom the exhibitors and pub lic are under great obligations, these gen tlemen reeeiving no remuneration whatever for their services. Much praise is due Mr. Miller for the great energy and sound judg ment displayed in the selection of pieces, and in the general management of the per formance. The authorities of the M. E. Church are also eutitled to the thanks of all, for the liberality manifested by them in admitting the performance in their house, as we have no town hall, and our school house is entirely too small to contain the largo audiences nssembled to witness the performance. In comparison with the ex hibition held here during the winter, it is the unanimous opinion of the most compe tent judges, that it was decidedly superior, both in the selection of pieces, and the style of performance. H. L. S. Thk Wife. The leading features in the character of a good woman are mildness, complaisance, and equanimity of temper. The man, if he be a worthy provident hus band, is immersed in a thousand cares. His mind is agitated, his memory loaded, and his body fatigued. He retires from the bustle of the world chagrined perhaps by disappointment, angry at insolent and per fidious people, and terrified least Lis una voidable connections with such people should make him appear perfidious himself. is this the time for the wife of his bosom; his dearest and most intimate friend, to add to his vexations, to increase the fevet of an over-burdened mind, by a contentious tongue or a discontented brow? Business, in it 8 most prosperous state, is full of anxie ty and turmoil, vh, how dear to the mem ory of man is the wife, who clothes her face in smiles, who uses gentle expressions, and who makes her lap so soft to receive and hush his cries to rest. There is not in nature so fascinating an object s faithful tender and affectionate wife. The Kansas Herald of Fieedom, March 22d, says: "Our streets are beginning to be thronged with strangers, and present quite a life-like anrearahce asrain after the drearv winter. Every boat which comes up the river has a large number on fcoard. Pro-slavery men trom me eoutn are Hurrying on, ana are Vsquatting" on every unoccupied claim they can find. There is not a doubt but they havo changed their tactics, and now hope to become actual settlers, and in that way car ry -their measures. We beg of the North to wake up, and send oh her noble spirits to locate peimanently here to aid us." " ' X TJsitrtji. MissiONABT. Rev.

V The minority reuori-'of the Select Cnmr m'uieP, to whom was commlued Bonale Bill No. 143. to proieci municipal cttrpornilons. &c., being unable io agree uh the mnjoriiy of ihe CommHiHP,' beg leivd respectfully to submit their reasons fortucb disan(: ; J: 1 The undersigned are of iht opinion, thoi both the original t Bill, as it .(Some from the Sfi atp.'aiid ns ii wjl bw.'if ijinended us pro pose J.. should bp indi finin'l posipnred.' in ineyir( proce, untie? opm sniipes 01 the Bill, tlie operation of a general Inw of this Siaie is m ide contingent and dependuni upon the voters of one coumy In theSiaie. Such a contingency we must regnrd as un consthutional. ; Had such, a contingency been a pari of the general law itself, evpry one would have seen its nrconsiituiionnliiy. A proviso to the general Rail Road law, sus pending, by direct words, its operation, until its provisions had been approved bv llii re spective couniies, would not receive a single vote in eiihei brunch of ihe Genervl Assem bly; nor would a proviso, excluding-! the Hocking Viilley from ha provisions, fare ony better. ; Can that, which cannot he done di recily, be done indiiectly? . Does that, which would have been unconstitutional, in 1862, as a pan of the original Bill, become cunsiiiutlon?! as an amendment, in 18561 In the second place, it is obvious ihut ibe General Assembly cannot pass a general act, enacting, in so many words, that Rail Roads may be legally built in evtry county county of the State, save two; and it cer tainly cannot delegate a power, it does not itself possess, to the voters of a single coun ty. The Bill, as now proposer1 to be amen ded, means simply this: that the genera! Rail Road law of this State shall not be ap plicable to the counties of Athens and Washington. These counties are treated as aliens the . sovereign Siate right of emi nent domain therein is suspended, and the citizens of these counties barred of rights, enterprises and undertakings open to all other citizens. The majority of these coun ties dictates to the minority how shall it in vest in own money. In the third piece, the Bill makes the party interested the judge in its own case. Pass the Bill, and the counties of Hocking. Fairfield and Franklin beco:n suitors at the bar of "popular sovereignty" in Washing ton county, and the judge is not the tiibunui fixed by the Constitution, but the party in terested in a denial ol justice. It is not a Bill allowing Washington county to decide its own business, but to decide" that of other .sounties. The principle of the Bill, once ir.augurated, will make the border counties of the State the arbiters in all Internal Im piovements, and the interior of the State will haVe to dtpend, (or the inlets and out lets of iis trade, upon their dictum. Every border county will be the toll house lot the rest. Under such a policy oil and every avenue of trade will bu thwarted in its proper course. It introduces a system of Initiation, from which must flow dt plomble consequences. What h done to or.e Road this winter, will bp done to otSers next win ter, and no Rail Road would be safe under the system. Admit the principle of this Bill, and your tuccefsors may extend it to J every charter in the State. In hf fourth place, the Bill is an invidi ou. and ill concealed attempt to gront to the people of one country the exetciso of the power of repeal. The corporation, which this bill ein mpis to legislate out of existence und it ceiiHinly means no more and n.i less than a renrul of the chorter oi the Co lumbus nod Uuckiug Valley Railroad, and a perpetual injunction against its (under con struction, hos violated nolaw, no one of its stockholders complains, no creditor ol hers is in danger of loosing a single dollar, the individual property owners have, in pun, yidiled her the right of way; and ell desire this Roud. expenses have been in curred lor surveys, &c; and yet, without the shadow of a complaint," without a s'ngle petition for its repeal, it is lobe stiuck down without being heard, without trial, without even the commonest forma of justice. Can it be possible that this Legislature will thus pram the power of repealing corporate fran chises to the. popular vote of one pouniy? Could the power of tepeal beput into a more dangerous form? In the Jifih place we most recpectiuiiy state, that this Hill is attempted to Do pnssea by false appeals to certain antipoihies, which are supposed to exist here against Virginia. In that state the passwge ol such a Bill will be hailed bv every enemy of Ohio, and will be deeply regretted, by her frii nds. Lnstern Virginia will applaud law which estranges Western Virginia from Ohio, and which puts the finishing siroka to her policy; which is to separate Western men and interests. Richmond and Norfolk have done all in thoir power to prevent Ba! timore from getting proper Rail Road con nections with Ohio. ' It it not passing strange that an Ohio Legislature should be appealed to Tor aid and comfort to the narrow poltc j of Eastern Virginia? The Matietta Road hat a charter up Cow creok, or Middle Island creek. Would Ohio consider it fair for the Baltimore Road logo to Richmond,' and get that charter repealed under the pressure of ami Ohio feelings.? The - queition is however, mlerepreseniod. It ii not between an Ohio ami a Virginia Road. Jt ts, whether an Ohio Road shall, through the popular vote of one county, ru7e other Ohio Jcoada, and prevent them Irom nroner connections. Nav. more. it is ina Sting Washington county the Judge over the Hocking Voile for the Bill -transleri i question, proper to be decided by its people to the hustings of a county; . , : , ' In the tiilk plaoe, we cannot sea in what possible wav this bill Is to aid ilia Marietta and Cincinnati Road, for whose relief this Bill is sought to be pasted. It does not grant her one dollar' of either money or ci edit. It does not add one iota to her cor poraie franchises; nor riots it; in any wise Increiic her revenues either prospective or present. Its Only effect will be embittered on all 'sides; which must provo ' destructive 01 ah hopes of reconciliation. u Ualtimore y 11 I II . . I r- ' ii it- ir-. 1 f ii :w it-' :T M II ! . I. 1 r r?

The present manager of iho Mariana Road ' informs us that the loss of the Baltimore business, for so much of her line as lies between Athens Jjpjid Marietta (35 miles) will so diminish her prospwcis of luiure revenue os to inke Irona her all chances of borrowir.g the sums need ed ip finish . the RouJ to Marietta. . If the los$ pf business on so small a port of her Road doea net such great injury, how will ihu total oss 'of ilia- , whi ja business affect her? Will any capitalist lend in a Rail Road, which attempts to force Rail Road connectiens by hostile legislation, and which looks to connection contracts by a declara tion of war? . Wo cannot be mistaken, when w iay that the safety of a Road, situated as the Marietta Railroad, lies, not in war. but in peace, not in connections at points to whiqh her Road is be. but at points to which it ?'j completed. Buliimorti has not attacked the Mmietta Road, and we regard the I'rvseni attack upon the Bull' more Rood as worse than mudness on the pari of the Marietta. in the seventh pluce, we most solemnly assert, after full inquiry, that the danger os sorted to be sure to occur to the Marietta Road, from the failure of this Bill, ts misap preliendedand mjstaied., If that Rood is in any danger, it is because her officers have miBmat aged hei finances, and because debts have been created beyond reasonable expec tations. The tender ol a connection at Athens, and a fully completed through con nection to Baltimore and Washington, bv the 1st of December next, does not fake away one farthing of either money or ctedit from that Road; while, rightly considered, it gives her credit, and the promise of early and certain revenues, with which to prose cute her Road, w Wheeling abd Philadel phia. It certainly is a very far fetched con clusion to construe such ancfilr ipio emnity. We Bpeak irom a full knowledge of all the circumstances, when we say, that if there is anything in the Marietta Road, which should alarm her stockholders ot d creditors, it is the frantic attempt to get such laws as this passed, and persisting in building a Road to Marietta, over the bills between Athens and Marietta, by a route involving expenditures enotmous beyond all reasona ble calculation. Several routes have already been located, and again abandoned, and full one lialf of the million expended on that line, and spoken of as being entirely lost by the building of the Hocking Valley Railroad, is either already or soon will be, abandoned under t'ie re-location of ihe Road, now be ing made. One large tunnel, on which much work has been done, is alrt ady aban doned. Why throw on the Baltimore Road the blame for matters in which those who complain fire the guilty parties? in the eighth place, we lemlnd the House hat the early perfection ol the Bui ii more connection at Athens, d tes not, in any man- net, involve ths abandonment of the Ruad to Marietta, and on to Ilwnpficld. On the contrary it secures it. In no other way can the Marietta become a paying Ruad, within twelve months. Tho connection between Parkershurg and Marl etta, by either river line or steamboat, is an n'lncere preposition, which the IJulinnore Road cannot luil to regard both os an instill in her true interests as well as her intelli gence. It involves such a loss of time end such expense as to make it impracticable in nil cuses in which iiis not ridiculous. The very fact, ihut such tin arrangement is to be forced upon the Buliimore Rond, by such gislation as this, is prool that it does not rest on us merits. All we ask is. mat in Cinjinr.oii, Wilmington and Zanesvilie Rond. and the Marietta Road, shall have a fait field and on even chance in this Rail road arrangement that Ohio, like Virginia. sholl leaver pen lo fuir argument, based upon iocts, the decision, to all the puriles concern- d. Virginia I as not forestalled the Mari etta Road in her route either up Cow Creek or Middle Ulund Creek. Lut an Ohio Leg islature forbear in closing the Hoiking Val- Joy dgainsi the Buliimore Railroad. Rail road lines had bet be left to engineers and public necessity; and the real pubjic interest nlwnvs eventually triumphs. Ohio wants no Eiie. nor no Panhandle within her bur den, lo obstruct trade end travel. . We have thus stated, as briefly as we could, our objections to the Bill under con sideration. We have felt it to do our duty lo do so; although, at the close of a labori ous session, we thould all have been, spared the agitation of aquestionso suddenly sprung upon us, and from which such momentous influences may flow. The Bill hns not been examined in Committee of the Whole, nor by a Standing Committee, nor is there time to do so. Under these circumstances we feel that the Bill should be indefinitely post poned, or, at least, to the next session. Results. Tho Bill was fit.ally passed, and Is now a law.

Ho hnd been repet ledly and severely afflicted with gout, probably owing in .on to the custom of drinking punch a common practice in high circles in those days. As recollected at this time, Hancock was near ly six feet in height and of thin person, stooping a little, and apparently enfeebled bv disease. His manners were very gra cious, l the old stile, a dignified com' plaisance. His face had been very hand some. Dress was adapted quite as much to tho ornamental as useful. Gentlemen wme wigs when abroad, and commonly caps when at home. At this time, about noon. Hancock was dressed in n red velvet cap, within which was one of fine linen. The latter was turned up over the lower edge ol the velvet nne two or three Inches. He wore nblue domask gown, Hmd with silk, a white satin embroidered waistcoat, black satin smull clothes, .white stockings, and red morocco slippers. It was a general prac tice In -genteel families lo have a tankard of punch made in the morning and placed in a cooler, when the season required it. At this visit, Hancock lock from the cooler, standing on the hearth, a full tnnkard, and drank first himself and then .offored it. to those present, iiis equipage was splendid, ot d such as is nut .cusiomary at this day. His apparel was sumptuously embroidered with gold, silver, lace and other decorations fashionable among men of fortune at thai period; and he rode, especially upon publi: occasions, with six beautiful bay horses, attended in livery. He wore a scarlet cuat, with ruffles on his sleeves; whicn soon be came ihe prevailing fashion; and il is related ol Dr. Nathan Jacques, the famous pedeB trian of West Newbury, that he passed all the way from thai place to Boston in one day, io procure cloth for a coat like ihut of John Hancock, and returned with It under his arm on foot.

We apprehend bui few persons abroad lealizn the astonishing rapidity with which public lands in thie territory rjre b-ing taken ' by actual seniors. While In Washington recently, wo were informed bv Mr. Rice, thai the records in the Lond Office Depart ment showed that the amount of lands pr empied in Minnesota tenitory lust year, ex- : ceeded that of all the other:Siates and terri tories together. Think of that noi more . than, in any other terriioty or State, but mote than in all of them together. This is an 'exhibit, of which we, as Minnesotians, may justly be proud, as it shows that stran gers are beginning to appreciate the advan- , lages here offered.
