fsj Our legislative news is meairro.
this weck, owing to our not receiving
try mail from Indianapolis from Fri
day until WedncJxj night, and when
it did eon.o, for t-ome rertM-n. we did not
gtl the latent papers. The Lrmlnturt
appear to to doirg very littlo except
wrangling over the election of Senators
to Wipercvdo Wright and Fitch. Hy our
text issue we hope to ho alio to an
nounce that the thing is JUL
Bridget and Turnpikes.
Over and often has the public atten
tion been called through tho medium ol
the Irens, to tho importance of con
structing a flridgo across tho West fork
of Whito Wafer at this place, until the
abject appears to have become flat,
tale and unprofitable. When our river
becomes unfoitlablc, wo are apprised of
the necessity ot constructing one, but
the subsidence of thö water in succeed -
edMjy lethargy and ho interest matii.
fested U entirely Iot, to Lea jam rcviv-
d by a succeeding ireshet.
o recur to this Mibjec-t, and urge
upon our citizens, and those interested.
to tako sncli decisivo measures as will
lead to intercourse with the Western
portion of our County, in dclianco ol
oar streams.
Want of unity has hcrctoforo. been a
drawback to tho fulfilment of such n
Vorthy enterprise; thero hato been too
many individual interests in conflict.
A union thould bo had by which some
.eligiblo point can bo selected, and all
jthisjai ring cease.
A point which has been mggested,
and which to us appears tho most prac-
.'tiblo ol all othors, is in tho locality of
Ilm rmiilonpn rf J. ). St. Jtihik'n deeens.
J. Wo nro led to thU opinion Iron,
tbe fact that a fiftm basis for such a su-
perbtruction can lie had at that point.
Expeiienco has demoustratrd the neces
sity of constructing tho abutments upon
a solid foundation. Had proper alten
tion been given to erection of the abut
mcnts to tho bridgo across tho east fork
cn tho road leading to Mt. Curmcl, we
would not now bo denied intercourse
With tllO Ea?tCrO portion Of Our County

With tllO aSSistanCO Which would Un-
doubtedfy lo extended to this enterprise
by Our County Board, in addition to
liberal donations from private citizens I
ro uo not question but that a Jruige
can bo constructed, especially r.s stated
belore, if this rivalry relating to its lo.
cation can bo suppressed.
In connection Jvith this subject, we
would call attention to tho importance
ef a Turnpiko to extend from said
Bridgo to Sunmansville, on the Indian
a pol is and Cincinnati liailroad, givin

Cards and Card Playing:.
It is a lamentable fact that card play,
ing is carried on to such an extent In
this country, as to vio with tho deprav
ity of tho Old World. We observe it
on board our water craft, infsting our
cities, towns and villages, corrupting
tho youth of our land, and holding oven
tho aged in bondage.
Tho attention of Legislature bodies
have been called to It; nets up acts have
been passed, until cur statues groan
under tho weight of what uro intended
to bo sumptuary law for tho supprcs
(ion not only in tho traille, but their vi lb
uso to which they arc applied.
Thero is no particular harm in a
gamo of cards for ninu?ctnet but ex
perience has demonstrated, that evils
has invariably followed theirintroduc
tion into society.
Wo can say of Broohville, in propor
tion to its population, It is as little in
festodas any of the places surrounding
it, m far as wo can learn. ,
By renson of tho nhsenco of man of
our citizens, as alirjrangcrs, wo enjoy
a brief Kcason of tr'-uility and ro
pose. v .V - .' V " T
So long as thoso who administer, fab
ricate nnd execute tho laws, cngago in
tho practieo of card playing, tho Staluto
relating to its sujipression becomes n
dead letter, and lcgilators uro Jwasting
their precious time and tho peoples'
money in vuch enactments.
Strike at tho trunk of tho evil, with
a lictvr'a hand und tho branches will
Thero is no dearth of law upon tho
subject, but let every citizen so that
tho law has vitality, n few examples of
its severity will operato beneficially
nnd society will reap a reward.
Tho attentio n ol the public has been
especially called, in selection of officers,
to tho use of ardent spirits, not reflect
ing for a moment that card pljying is
tho greater evil of tho two, being the
parent of a majority of tho vices under
which Micictj" labor.
Cards originally wcro intended for a
humane purpose, they were introduced
in Franco during tho reign of Charles
VI. A. D. 1 !!.", who lived 45 years and
reigned 42, CO of which he passed in a
-tato of almost constant insanity, to
amuse bun in his lucid intervals, the
gaino of cards was introduced. They
wcrepaiutcd in gold and divers colors.
It whs u revival of nn ancient amuse
ment, and in loss than four years, the
mania for card playing becainoso great
that the provost of Paris forbado their
uso. But as tho Court naid no utten

were used to amuso that monarch, and
a very just idea of tho dress ot that po

figures had a distinct meanincr.
Uy the hearts were meant the Church
men, from tho Trench word Coeur,
meaning heart, and theso cards are
called "gzno Je choeur" or choirmen.
lly the Spades, which arc In factpiko
heads, aro meant tho nobles or military.
Ily the pquiro stones or tiles, which we
call diamonds, but which tho French
call ctineaux, was intended tho class of
workmen; and lastly-, tho suit, which
wc call clubs, but which is in fact but
tho leaf of clover or treloil, was meant
to represent the peasantry.

Ma. Fosrr.n:
Some people would say
that Columbia is a "finished town ami
not very big at that; but lookingaround
I notice somo things just made, some
that tiro not finished, and somo that
will never bo finished. Mr. 1). O Darby
tho worthy post mastor of this place has

This of itsolf is indieativo of lifo in this

O'Darby has a premium washing ma

off all his competitors at tho Stato Fair,
it ditl take the premium and tho dirt
out of a hrnti Hit, nicely. Uut this ma
ch ine is notfinishod as Mr. O'D, expects
to mako somo very important improve
ments on it, after which ho may well
defy competition. Speaking of Sorgh
um I may as well say that Mr. O'Dar
by is not alono engaged in tho making
of this molasses; Moses Savage, Thorn
as Jones and others here, have made
somo as good as wo want in this cli
mate, and thoso who want bettcr.should
go South. Somo old liners think, no
doubt, it tastes Mrongly of wool, nnd
that it is decidedly unconstitutional to
thus interfero with tho institutions of the
scuth. Democrats who enraM in th
manufacture of Sorghum molasses, mut
expect to be read ot of the part y.
I said in tho onset that somo
would call this an 'finished town.' Now

you do, you had better como up here,

Friend Foster: This is Thanksgiv
ingday and tho turkey dinners nro eat
en. I cannot eay much about such
things, ns owr turkies were spare-ribs
and sausago. Indeed, I havo seen but
few turkies anywhere this Fall, they
having mostly died last Spring on ac
count of tho wet weather. I hopo you
you had a nieo time eating good things.
Tho roads hero aro worse than when
I last wrote, and when tho snow all
melts they will, bo still worse. You
seem to bo glad to have winter, wo
would be glad to havo summer.
In a former letter I tnado a remark
that was calculated to do harm, and it
was mado unthoughtcdly and.premu
tu rely. I remarked that the Allopathic
physicians hero wcro rapidly losing ty
phoid fever eases. I had . bcnso in
formed, but lalscly, nnd I now mako
tho "amend honorable" by stating that
our Allopathic physicians havo had en
tiro Miecess in such case, ns well as in
all others, and they deserve and get a
full sharo of practice. I regret any re
mark that would throw any Imputation
on tho character or skill of thoso gen
tlemen. So far ns I can learn they
havo tho confidence of the cntiro com
munity, and they havo Leen hero long
enough to build up a lino reputation.
As tho ''hair of tho dog is good for tho

Messrs (tootling nnd Wilson declin
ed voting on the resolution.
lho President asked if tho Senato
would determine how this voto should
bo sent on to Washington, in order that
thoso men might bo turned out.
Murray naid tho Senato would tako
caro of Hi action without any sugges
tions from the chair.
Hook, Xov. 27. The joint resolution
of Mr. Austin, ponding at tho adjourn
ment on Wednesday, camo up.
Dobbins withdrew his motion lo in
definitely postpone that resolution.
-M wards moved its commitment to a
committee of threo to inquire into the
legality of that election, and report
what action should bo taken. Ho'was
not prepared to voto on tho original
resolution, and thought it proper to in
quire whether tho decision of the Sen
at precluded all action.
Tnrnie opposed its committal. Ho
thought all tho facts in the caso wcro
known, and the conclusion of that com
raittco would bo a foregone one.
ttlytbo disliked to soem fractional if
he did not tako tho course marked out
by tho majority. Ho should do bis duty
fearlessly, though hd stood alone. Iiis
own opinion was formed. So fur as tho
election of Senators was concerned, it
was futilo and foolish to urge on this
Murray was ready forjnvestigation
if needed. IIo hoped that there would
bo decisivo and detinito action.
Clements nt first was disposed to vote
for tho reference, lie now was willing
to bravo the storm that seemed to be
browing. It was poor economy to
wnsto time nnd money on this Huhject
when t( ey could not reverse tho decis
ion of tho Supremo Cour.
Dobbins wus not afiaid of any inves
tigation. It wns useless to refer the
subject to ft committee
Hall, of Rush, argued ugainst the lo
gality of tho election of Bright and
Gifford to put himself right on tho
record, offored an amendment that In
dianu is now legally and constitutionally
represented in the Senatoof tho United
States, and tho election of now Senators
would bo a farce.
Merrifield opposed tho commitment.
We knew all tho fucts in tho caso. Wo
could not altor tho decision of tho Uni
ted States Senate, even tho Senate its
elf could not alter it. They could no
more reverse their decisions than tho
Supremo Court could sit upen and re
verso its decisions.
Mr. Austin stated tho object of Mr.
IMward's resolution being simply to de
termine whether tho action of lho Son
nlo of lho United Slates had precluded
all action on our part, he should voto
for it.
Mr. Raird: In reply to the gentleman
from Porter, would say that lawycisdo
tako up tu tho Supremo Court qucotions
they havo ono decided, to enablo them
to correct any error into which they
may havo fallen. So wo now wish to
send men to tho Senato to get n rear
gument of tho caso. Gentleman talk
about retrenchment, it they wish to
save $GU0 a day lo tho State, why don't
they let us havo our own way nt onco
land elect Senators without any further

Mr. Davis stated that his opinions
were formed. Much ns ho regrclted
lhc facts ir. reference to tho election o
15ri.ht and Fitch, ho could not. by any
voto of his change tho action oil tho
Senato. Hence he thought an mtempt
to elect Senators hi their place vain itnd
foolish. Rat bail this Legislature the
power, there is not a man who would
fooneruso it than himself. You cannot
reverse tho decision which has placed
thorn firmly in their seats. Why con
sume timo in attempting it?
Tho motion to refer to a committee
wan lost: ayes .41), nnyn 5t.
Mr. Rlytho moved to utrike out all
after tho word resolved and insert a sub
(tlitute declaring lho election of liright
and Fitch to tho Seriate, in 1837, im
proper und irregular, and tho fact that
they demanded and consented to hold
their seats on such tenure is worthy of
