When limestone is used and properly broken it will readily become compact under car riage wheels, and make a lino road,?but not co with sandstone. We respectfully suggest to the Managers of this road ihal it may yet bo made smooth nnd agreeable to travellers, end will wear and keep in order much longer, if the Mac adamized portions are covercd with some i wo; incties of earth. This ia the opinion ofi Judges, Lawyers, Jurors, Editors, &c., who had the subject under discussion last week .luring the session of the Circuit Court at Kingwood. The expense of such finishing will bo Iri flmg, in proportion to the advantages; and that expense would probably be mado up by the iucicasu of toll from travellers.

Tho Fair will no doubi be an interesting occasion, and will well re pay Tisitors and participants. Thu Premi um List is largo and full, and well calculated to bring out a graiid display of the products of tho ihree great branches of Industry, o l?ve named, in Westijrn Virginia. The Fair Grounds aiu beautifully silualed on the Island opposite tho City of Wheeling, and nre capacious and neatly arranged, with ev erv accommodation for visitors or "fairat tendants."

Should ike Bailroad Company adopt the half-pay, round-iicket system of last year, as tliey no doubt will, the expense of attending, from this quarter, will be email, anil we see no i reason why Monongalia county should not be well represented.

Startling os it may sound to our Northern rend ere, Mr. Lewis does vot belong to the "first families of Virginia." He is the son of a tailor, and worked in his father's shop un til he was eighteen years of age ; but having " a soul above buttons," he left the paternal roof at that early age, with the determina tion to educate himsell for the profession of the law. We next h*ar of him a* a student in one of the Ohio Colleges, working at in tervals at his trade in order to supply him self with the necessary pecuniary means to prosecute his studies. In due course of time, he praduated with honor, then studied law?with the goose in one hand and Black stone in the other?was admitted, and final ly returned to his native village, where he " hung out his shingle."

Cincinnati, August 13,185*1. Dear Sir: The Anti-Liquor Law, passed by the Legislature of last winter, has been en forced hero, and Mayor Snelbaker seems de termined that Sunday grog-shops shall be closed. The result thus far, though the law is not all the friends of Temperance ask for, has been quite satisfactory. Our Sundays have never been so quiet and orderly, and genteel drinking places keep ''shady.*' In the German portions of the city, where the | good old customs of the "Fatherland" ore ! kept up. the law meets with considerable re-' sistance. I see the papers give accounts of j enthusiastic meetings of Germau citizens, to iftke measures to test before the highest tri-1 buuels of the State, the constitutionality of the law, and to that end commitiees are re reiving subscriptions of money to employ ?minent counsel to undcrtuke the matter.? t need only say, to show the character of ihese meetings, that they also go in for the abrogation of the Sabbath. German infidel ity has a deep h/ild of our German popula tion. One of the Judges of the Supreme Court of the State has already decided the law unconstitutional,?I speak of the Liquor Law,?while another has decided, in a case ' I before him, that it is constitutional. The former, as public scandal has it, is a little i Loo fond of " ihc critterv himself, to be com petent to decide such a question fairly, and has therefoie uvuiled himself of a mere quibble, it is this, that the law was not read three times before its passage ! The sympa thy and good sense of a large majority of the people of this State are with the decision sustaining the Constitutionality of the law. | While the Cholera has prevailed more or less throughout the whole West, we have been comparatively free from this dreadful scourge.

Treaties with the Indians of Nebraska, A letter ir? the Burlington, Iowa, Gazette, by A. C. Dodge, dated Washington, April 20, gives the following particulars of the Treaty with the Indians of Kansas end Ne braska : These Indians have ceded all their lands, excepting a place for thoir future abode, to be designated by the President. They are to remove as soon as the necessary provis ions are made for fulfilling the stipulations of the treaty, arranging their affairs, kc.~ Thoy relinquish all claims under former treaties, save such sums as may be due them, and also agree to abandon any claim hereto* fore preferred by them to land in our Slate. The United States are to pay the Ottoes and Missouries 820,000 annually, for three years, from the first of January, 165-1; 813, 000 per annum for the next ten years, 89000 for the next fifteen years; and 80000 per annum for the next twelve years.

These sums arc to "be paid or expended for the benefit of the Indians, under the au thority of the President, who is authorized to direct what proportion of the yearly pay ments, il any, shall be made in money, and what part shall be expended for their edu cation, civilization and other beneficial ob jects?such as the opening of farms, purcha sing of stock, farming utensils, clothiug, provisions, and for the improvement of their noral and physical condition. To enable the Indiuns to remove to their lew homes?which they are to do without urther expense to the United States?the Dttoesand Missouries ore to receive the fur her sum of S20,000,and the Omahas 841,000 which are also to be expended in such man nej as the President may approve.

The United States are to eTect, for each of the tribes, a grist and saw-mill, and provide a miller. They are also to erect a blacksmith-shop, furnish tools, and an experienced smith : likewise, a farmer, for a period of ten years, to instruct the Indians in agriculture. It is also agreed that any Indian or Indians who may intro duce into their country, or use, intoxicating liquors, shall have his or their annuity with held for such time as the President may de termine. Thev further acree that all necessary roads highways end railroads which may ub con structed as llie country becomes settled ami improved, the lines of which run llirough their lands, shall have a right of way, &c? just compensation being paid therefor. By this treaty with the Omahas, Ottocs, and Missouries, we have acquired the coun try border,iug on.the Missouri river, and ex tending to the Little Neinahan, 18 miles south of the southern boundary line of Iowa, to the " Eau qui court," or Ni-obrarah, on the north. Its southern and western boun dary is the Little Neinahan to its source; thence due west to a point about 80 miles from the. Missouri river; thence due north to the Platte river; thence by a line (not well defined) to the " mauvaise Terre" river; thence by that river, and the '? Kau qui court," to the Missouri river. A reservation having been made by the Omahas of the country north of a line drawn from u point where the Ayowoy river disembogues out of the blurts, east to the Missouri river, and west to the western limit of the Omaha country?ami also, a reseivation by the Ol toes of about 10 by 25 miles, at a place call ed by the Indians '"The Islands,"on the waters of the Big Blue river. The cession embraces, exclusive of reservations, nearly 9,000,000 acres, and a front on the Missouri rivor of more than 300 miles. Its territorial extent is nearly equal to New Hampshire and Vermont; more than that of Maryland and Delaware. It exceeds the area of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut together, and is nearly twelve limes as largo as the. State of Deluware. Over this vast region Providence has scat tered his blessings with a bouutiful hand, of which you know more than 1 can tell you. Curious Eject of Hair on Orasi.?A few years ago the purchasers of hog hair at Terre Haute, ind. carried it out upon the prairie and spread it on the grass to dry. This was in the fall and winter.? After being washed with the rains, it was raked up, leaving a portion sticking in the grass, in the spting this wus the earliest green spot and continued to be the sweet est, as was proved by the cattle resorting there to feed. By and by one of them died and another aud another, though ap parently fat and healthy. Then one was opened to ascertain the cause of deal h, and and afterward others for cutiosity. In the stomachs of such as had fed most upon his hair manure spot, were found two or three dozen hair balls, such as we used to be told when a boy were "witch balls"? We have seen tliem three inches in diam eter and solid as it is possible to compact hair together. The calamity grew so se rious that the owners of cattle had to plow up the grund and tnrn tinder the sod and its rich manuring which continued toshow its effects foe years after.

LOWS. Several Persons Killed?A targe KoaUr Wonnded--Tlio Military Called Out. It was briefly slated by telegraph, 6 ?j few days ago, that a disgraceful elec tion riot occurred in St. Louis on Mon day last. Wo yesterday received the St. Louis Democrat, contain# tiio an nexed particulars of the bloody affair: It originated about 2 o'clock in the afternoon at the polls of the fifth ward, between a party who called themselves Americans and n number of Irish who had gathered around the engino house, J The fight was a general one, which was followed by slight skirmishing nil along j Third street between Vino street and ; Franklin avenutf, serving very much to increase the exclu;rocnt and draw to gether u large crowd, Wherever an Irishman wao seen on the street he was pursued and most cru elly boaleu. Finally pursuit of one was made down Morgan street, where the mob were met by a number of Hiber nians, who gave battle by throwing stones and tiring pistols, but the crowd of rioters increasing they gave way end retreated to their houses between Main and the Levee on Morgan. Here, for a while, the mob was a scene of the wildest excitement. The Irish fired as many perhaps as a hundred pistol shots into the crowd, who were breaking in tiie doors and windows of the houses by showers of stones from the street. At last the shouting was silenced, arid the mob proceeded down to the levee, and along it to Locust streot, assailing every coffee house or tenement suppscd to contain foreigners with acontinued storm of missiles. Afier this the Irish mado another stand on second street, hut were driven down past Cherry, the mob still contin uing their assault upon the houses and windows. They then proceeded up Morgan and Green streets, above Fourth, and assailed a number of houses, com pletely riddling the doors and windows with stones and brickbats. During the evening a slight assault had been made on the office of the Anzeiger Des Wes terns, but the party wore dispersed with out much injury. In the meantime the military and police were out in full force, scattering the excited combattants here and thore, and doing much to re store quiet to tli& city. About 10o'clock at night, however, a company of the rioters, numbering perhaps twenty, came marching down Third street from the seenu of assuulturr on Morgan, with stones in Hand, nn<] snouting in uie wnu-1 est manner, and upon arriving in fiont1 of the Anzeiger office ugoin commenced on assault upon liio windows and doors of the house. At this juncture the mil itary camo charging upon the crowd a gain, and dispersed the mob. When we left the scone, quiet seemed to be in a very fair way of being restored, the military having complete possession of the street, and seeming determined to enforce order. It is utterly impossible to estimate the number of persons wounded in the whole affair, or even to say how many have been killed. We saw at least 20 men lying bleeding and wounded so se-1 verely that they were perfectly insensi-1 ble?their luces cut most horribly and : skulls mushed, and some appearing per-: fectly dead j and then we have learned j of three men certainly killed, and of five or six more who are thought to be dead at this time from wounds received. It is a wonder to us, when we remem ber the number of shots tiled and (he oxposed position of the mob, that there were not double the persuns killed and wounded. A man by the name of Shan non was 6tabbed in tho buck of the neck, from which he very probably died last night. A baud from the steamer Henry Chouteau was killed instantly, and a man by tho nme of Joe or Frank Freeman was shot through the heart, and fell dead without uttering a word. Ho was standing near a lumber pile at the foot of Morgan street, ou the levee, with his arms folded, watching the affray without at all participating, when ho re ceived the fatal shot from the window of u house on iiatlle Row. We hear of one man being shut in tho leg, another in the baud, one in the abdomen and another in the shoulder. We cannot pretend to give a correct statement either of tho number killed and'wounded, or tho true origin and continuance of the mob. The immense i excitement throughout the whole city prevented the procurement of any re liable uccouut of tho disturbance.- j Tho St. Louis Intelligencer 6a_vs the riot originated from an Irishman stab-j bing an American at the fifth ward polls. I He was pursued for several squares j and arrested, and to prevent a rescue by tho mob, was immediately conveyed to jail. During the riot Jackson Fow ler and Jumcs Kussell, one a twite and the other a pilot, were shot, the formor in the side and tho laltor iu the arm Ten arrests wore made, Every Irish grocery ou Morgan and Green streots, extending west from Broadway, was torn to pieces. Some fifty or sixty hous es in all, mostly low groggeries, were badly damaged and their contents en. tirely destroyed. The entire loss is es timated lit SAO,000. For three hours tho mob had full sway, having set the police at defiance. Finally ut a lato hour in tho morning, eight military com panies being under artns, the work of I destruction was stayed.

Bed anil varied thnt it is difficult to snv which party is getting the best of tho, struggle. All however agree in repre. senting a sad state of affoitu as the ro sult of the prolonged civil war. Tbo old government having its hands fully occupied in repelling the MtacltB of this insurgents in the vicinity of Pekin, bands armed robbers were devasta ting tbo country, particularly the Cen traJ Provinces. A commercial letter says that forty-eight Ua companies htul returnnd to Shanghai from the Central Provinces, having been robbed of all their means of purchase. The groat commercial mart of Honon had been burnt by an armed mob, fJingehnw, the district from whence the morning teas are brought, was stated to lie in possession of an armed rabbin, who have beheaded the Mandaiins and ta ken po?nessian of iho government. In some Provinces the Mandai ins have for bidden tea to be grown for fear that it will attract the attention of the insur gents. As to the insurgents at Pekin, it is difficult to ascertain correctly their condition. It is (hntight that they aro still victorious; indepd a rumor prevail ed at Shanghai that Pekin was taken, but this was believed to bo premature. No later news from Japan had boon re ceived in China. The. disturbances in the tea districts would, it was believed, soriously interfere' with the future for warding of tea.?Bait. American. The Mexican Revolution. Advices from Acapnlco up to the 13th ult., show that the Revolution under Alvarez is still in progress, and is gain ing in force and extent. The Bolctin Official Df the Restoring Army of Lib erty states that pronunciamentoes are multiplying in that vicinity and in tho neighboring departments. New victo ries havo also been obtained over tho forces of Santa Anna. Tho depart ment of Miehoacan, which joins that of Mexico on the north, has gone enti'ely over to the revolution since the defeat by Gen. Salgado of tho Dictators troops there underGen. Babamende. Of thirf battle, which was fought at Huetamo, no particulars aro furnished.

Iiu was a friendless creature, who ho., not the powor to excite sympathy, n"r money to buy counsel or jury. The eauso of this frightful laxity, says the Chroni cle. is to bo sought in the imperfection of tho laws, owing to the incapacity nnd unworthinoss of thoso whom Coiilbrm ans make legislators. They don tknow enough to frame laws, at d their atten tion is engrossed by mercenary and sel fish projects to the nogiect of their du ties. Hence tho Chronicle argues tho necessity of reform in the selection anil support of candidates for important pub lic stations. Tho premises, if correct, certainly seem broad enough to justify the deduction. The Japanese "Upper Ten."
