The Kbciilurg and Sisnielaimallailt
The agitation of this important projected im
provement has re-commenced, and under suclt
favorable auspices, that if the proper exertions
ore made, the road will be constructed. A meet
ing is called for Thursday, 20th January, at
which it is to be hoped there will be a large' at
tendance of those interested. Every one in this
community is aware that so far, the present win
ter, there has been but little business transact
ed with the northern portion of the county
caused by the absence of the snow. Last win
ter the trade with that section was very great
for the reason that we had good sledding and
plenty of it. A good plank road would enable
the farmer, the lumberman, and all others to
bring their products to market during any part
of the year, and would obviate the necessity of
depending upon the weather. When such a
road is built it matters little whether we have
enow during the winter or not, and contracts for
the delivery of lumber and produce can be made,
with the certainty of having the article at the
designated place at or before the time contrac
ted for its delivery. Good roads increase trade
and travel as is well illustrated in the case of

Ebensburg with that point (in our estimation)
its construction. .Plank
roads are the Farmer's Railroads. Their pecu
liar merit is, that the diminution of friction up
on them makes them akin to railroads, with the
advantage over railroads that every one can
drive his own wagon upon them. A horse can draw
t co or three times as much upon a plank road as
he can upon a common road, and a greater degree
of speed can also be obtained with les3 injury
vehicles and to horses feet than upon a common
road. Upon a plank road a two-horse team has
drawn six torn of iron, thus exhibiting the ad-
vfint;ir-e of such a road over a Mud road. Tim
her for clanks is plenty along the line of this
road and there are numbers of persons who will
Ruhscribe liberally in that manner : others will
subscribe the value of their labor in grading the
road ; others will subscribe cash. The road can
Ko tv,i,1 5f ntvmerlv undertaken. If the trade
nml increasing business of the county i3 to re
main within her own borders, instead of seeking
r market outside the limits of the county, the
.ncfrnftlnn nf this road will be the surest
moans to accomplish so desirable a purpose
with an earnest wish for that, we express the
hope that the meeting on Thursday week may
be largely attended, and the proper measures
taken to build the road during me coming bum
xner. "There's no such word as fail."

Pennsylvania Railroad Company vs. the
The Supreme Court has at last rendered a de
cision in the case of the Pennsylvania Railroad
Company vs. the C. Com'rs the decision being
adverse to the Company. The decision takes
the ground that the Canal Commissioners repre
sent the State, and have absolute control over
the works owned by the State. It seems strange
that there should ever have been any doubt
about so plain a matter. We presume the Com
pany will hardly rocognize the right of indivi
duals to attach to the locomotives running on
the Pennsylvania Railroad without the consent
of the President and directors; why, then, should
the State not possess the same power over her
improvements ? There is no good reason why
the State should not have a monopoly of the
business of carrying passengers on her own
road. If she can grant such a right to the com
pany, it would be strange if she did not possess
the power herself. Standard.
The U. S. Minister to England.
At a recent banquet given by the Lord (!)
Mayor of London, Hon. Joseph R. Ingersoll, of
Pcnn., the American Minister, delivered a short
speech laudatory of the Euglish and their gov
ernment, of which the Pennsylvanian justly
"That he should have followed so closely inifhe water is
the "footsteps of his illustrious predecessor,"
the Hon. Abbott Lawrexce, in his sickening
laudation of England and the English, need ex
cite no surprise, as they both belong to the same
political faith. That Mr. Lawrence sometimes
disgusted even the aristocracy of England by
his over-strained efforts and his fulsome adula
tion of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, is a
well known fact. How generally he succeeded
in producing the same effect upon a largo por
tion pf the people of this country, is quite un
necessary for us to say. We had hoped for bet.
ter things of the Hon. J. R, Isgersoll, but
we have been disappoints J.
Few gentlemen of our acquaintance are held
in higher esteem for their social good qualities,
thfin our respected fellow-citizen. It is there
fore with deep regret that we are called upon to
repudiate and condemn the sentiments contain
ed in his late speech in London as anti-Republican
ami anti-American equally discreditable
to himself and to the country he mis-represents.
What was it to him that there was bo much
loyalty' to a jnonarchy evinced by those who
were assembled upon that occasion ? By what
authority does he declare that the people of this
country hold England in such "love and admira
tion," as not to be excelled by any other in the
world ? Because the old Federal city of Bos
ton recently chose, as he says, to bestow upon
an English aristocrat 'the honors elsewhere paid
to a conqueror,' is that any proof that the Amer
can people, generally, have become abject and
degraded sycophants at the footstool of British
power ? What was it to him, as an American
Minister, that such a gorgeous parade was made
at the funeral of the Duke of Wellington ? In
what possible respect was all that empty show
a 'gratifying spectacle' to a Republican Repre
sentative from the United States of America ?
What single act of that -leading tory's life enti
tled him to the grateful homage or remembrance
at the hands of an American freeman ?
But the crowning climax in the foreign ad
dress we are now very reluctantly examining, is
yet to come. It is in the following words :
'He (Mr. Inoehsoll) had seen to-day the
loyalty with which the throne was regarded, and
he, too, was willing to say with them all, 'God
save the Queen.'
There it stands. The record is complete.
Th6 cap-stone is fitted to its place. An Ameri
can (?) Minister is delighted with loyalty to the
British Crown, and prays that the English mon
archy may be providentially preserved. The
ultimatum has at last has been reached Feder
al sympathy for those who wear a diadem can
not well go beyond this.- We hardly know
which emotion preponderates in our bosom at!
j present whether that of pity or shame."

Continned Rise in the Ri-rerTestrnc
tion of Property Sinking of Plat Boats
Roads Inundated, &c, fcc.
The heavy rain storm last Thursday night,
appears to "have prevailed throughout all parts
of the West. We hear of floods in Missouri,
Illinois, Indiana, Tennesee, Kentucy, and our
own. State. The river continued to rise yester
day, at the rate of one and a half inches per
hour, but will probably commence recedh
this morning. The water was up to the second
story of Cassilly's Row, and also into the second
Btory of "Rat Row." The ferry boats find con
siderable difficulty in landing their passengers
on both sides of the river. We are informed
that the foundations of some three or four hou
ses on the levee, below the foot of Walnut have
been washed out, causing the buildings to fall.
Saw logs, rafts and lumber, of various kinds,
have been torn loose from their moorings, above
and below this city, and carried down the ri
Several flat boats, partially loaded, sunk be
low the foot of Vine street, night before last.
We learn from the drivers on various stage com
panies, that the roads are in some places com
pletelv submersed with water, owicjr to the
swollen creeks, and that fences and bridges have
been swept away. Several of the lines have
been compelled to stop running, thus cutting off
all communication with the towns within a few
miles of this city. The farmers on the several
roads, cannot come to market until the waters
crossing the roads have fallen, and the bridges
torn away, are repaired. No further damage
has been done, to either railroads, and the trains
are now running regularly as usual. 1 In our
perambulations, we visited tb.3 following
points : '
Fulton. Around the steamers on the stocks,
now building in Fulton, the water has partially
reached, but with the exception of washing a
way some little lumber, they have been secu
red. The extensive rolling mill just above the
Water Works, has suspensed operations ; also,
Gissedorf s cotton factory, Fagin's mill, and
McLean's oil mill. The planing mills hve also
been compelled to suspend work, while the hands
are engaged in saving the lumber contigious to
the mills. In the vicinity of the tan-yard,
above the railroad crossing, the vater in the
street is about two feet deep. A number of
those residing on the lower side of the street
have been compelled to seek other quarters.
The different coal yards are also psrtially sub
merged. Columbia and Pendletos. In diese towns
the water has reached nearly all thehouses, and
the citizens, night before last, left their houses
and sought shelter elsewhere, through feir that
they might be washed out during the n;ght.
Sheds, firewood, and lumber have been rashed
Jamestown, Kt. The place is partly iiunda
ted by water, but the citizens still cling" t their
houses, and obstinately refuse to leave, jlleging
that'the water will not rise much higher, and
that they will be saved the trouble and conse
quent expense of moving. i
Newport. On the river bank the watrjis into
many of the houses. The occupants as ageneral
thing, have not left. The rolling mil above
Newport, and the saw mill above the" larracks
on Licking river, have suspended opesition.
through several of the
streets in the back part of the city, an'tenants
of houses' have been forced to leave. The wa
ter in some places is about four feet dep, and
skiffs are used to travel from door to ooor. Se
veral buildings have been partially unilrmined,
and tears are entertained that when tie water
recedes, they will fall. About five fiet more
water, and the city will be enticly sur
rounded. Covisgtos. The water is into the bouses on
Front street, but the inmates have notremoved.
The rolling mills of Jordan "& Co., uj Licking
river, and Morrrell & Shoemaker, at tie foot of
Scott street, have been forced to suspend oper
ations. The saw mill below has stopjed. The
new steanilKat at Alexander & Co.'s ship yard
has been secured fxCJ any damage ; jonsidera
ble lumber has been carried off. In the lower
part of the city the water is running j-n several
of the streets, and has backed up .he" creek
about half a mile, cutting off all pnncction
with the lower river road. A mile ot two back
of Covington, near the Lexington turnpike, we
learn that a pen of about two hundred hogs
were drowned by the unexpected; rfee in the
creek. The loss will be several thousand dol
lars. Luplow. This small town is party inunda
ted by water, and many of the nhabitants
have taken refuge on this side of tic river.
The Queen City Race Course is partlj submer
ged. Sedamsville. Here the water has kist reach
ed the houses, and but little damage ii anticipa
The water has backed up Mill Creek over two
and a half miles. The fioor has been removed
from the bridge at the mouth of this creek, ren
dering it impassible.
Eagle Engine House is entirely eurrunded
by water so that it is impossible to get tirough
the front door. The water is up to the imersec-
tion of Freeman and Fifth streets. Tie Mill
Creek bridge is overflowed some three feet, and
rendered impassible. In the several brickyards
in the lowlands of Mill Creek much damage has
been done. It is estimated that upwards of
eighteen hundred thousand bricks have been de
stroyed. Last evening at dusk the water had
reached to the height of the aqueduct over Mill
Creek, and the waters of the Whitewater and
fM.in bad eominffltd. Several of the mills and
factories in tt is portion of the city have also
been compelled to suspend operations.
All the hogs in this part of city are afloat
and the damage is extensive. Those desirous
of crossing over from tho west side of Mill
creek to this city are rowed over in boats, and
charged ferriage. Quite a number were employ-
fed in ferrying during yesterday. The water
backed the sewer on Main street yesterday, and
several cellars, as far up as Columbia, were fil
led with water.
The Water Works are in operation, although
the company are compelled to use the large low
pressure engine to force the water up into the
reservoir. By the mark on the building this
rise is within seven feet of the flood in 1847.
Those best cognizant of river matters say
that the river will commence falling by the morn
ing, and those recently deprived of houses may
soon regain possession.
The Prometheus California News.
Yesterday we announced the arrival of the
Steamship Prometheus, at New York, with one
days later news from California, since which,
we have received California papers from which
we glean the f ollowing news :
The Vallejo correspondence of the Alta Cali
fornia, says : The Electors for President and
Vice President, met at Vallejo, on Dec. 1st, and
cast the vote of California for Franklin Tierce
and William R. King. Afterwards, Hon. Thom
as J. Henley was selected to convey the result
to Washington. Eight ballots were taken be
fore a choice was made. On the first ballot Mr.
Gregory had two votes, Mr. Henly one, and an
other person one vote. On the two subsequent
ballots Mr. Gregory had two votes, Mr. Henley
one vote, and there was one blank. It was dc
cided that Mr. Gregory had cot a majority, and
the Electoral College proceeded to ballot the
fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh times unsuccess
fully, Col. Gift receiving one vote on the fourth
and fifth, and J. G. Brent, of Los Angclos, one
vote on the sixth and seventh balloting. On the
eighth attempt, the vote was : For Mr. Henly
Messrs. Sherwood, Pico and-IIenly ; fcr Mr.
Brent Mr. Gregory. So Mr. Henly received
the choice of the college for messenger, which
office carries with it a very handsome amount of
compensation in the shape of mileage.
There was a very fair assemblage of aspirants
for office, seeking for the recommendation of the
electors (in the event of election of Gen. Pierce,)
for such offices as pay. Among the applicants
are 6ome really good men and elegant gentle
men ; but quere, (with your correspondent who
is a mere outsider,) would it not be as well to
wait a few days, and ascertain who is elected
President ? If Tierce should, by some bare
possibility, fail of an election, those seekers for
the spoils of party, will have a terrible fall.
Execution. Tatman and Bates were to be
hung last Tuesday at Shasta for the murder of
a young man named Mitchell. Bates lately at

Coxcorp, N. H., Dec. 20, 1832.
No report that Gen. Tierce has fixed upon a
cabiuet, has been sent from the telegraph office
in this town, to Senator Soule, Mr. Brown, or
any one else. The Washington rumors are all
humbug, and not worth a farthing.
The general sentiments of the speech of Sen
ator Mason, of Virginia, in the United States
Senate, on the 23d inst., it is now well under
stood here, indicate the policy of the new ad
ministration. I have already written you that
Gen. Tierce will neither act the craven nor the
headlong fillibustcr. While Cuba remains a
province of Spain, he will not interfere, but if
any potentate attempts to take it from Spam,
either by rapine or treaty, he will interfere, cost
what it may.

Washington, Dec. 30, 8 T. M.
The rumor that John A. Dix is to go into the
Cabinet, has created quite an excitement amongst
some of the Southern men, who prophecy that
such a selection would be fatal to the adminis
tration. There is some difference of opinion
however, as a distinguished Southern gentleman,
heretofore known as ultra in his views, remark
ed in special reference to Gen. Dix's going into
the Cabinet. "Did we unite in battle to be
separated in victory ?" Thus showing that he

subscriber has sent us a certificate from one of
his Tarishioners, which he wishes piblished for
the benefit of his neighbors, and the community
at large. It states on authority that needs no
confirmation, the particulars of a remarkable
cure by Ayer's Cherry Tectoral, an article we
have already taken occasion to notice, and which
we have reason to believe is worth notice. This
sufferer had been reduced very low from the ef
fects of a Cold and Cough, caused by over exer
tion at a fire, nearly three years since, and from
which it was evident to his friends that he was
fast hastening to a premature grave. Many of
