Tlie triumph of the Alien faction at the lata Locofoco Con vention has jiven his friends new hopes, and now instead of fighting tinder cover, they " come out boldly aud ask the President elect . U fiv. him a seat io hi cabinet, selecting - for thia frar.o.e the office of Secretary of State. There is to be a bold push made to ', aecura thi. object, and it will require a union of all the oppoaiaf factions in the State to prevent it. If all ruuiars are true, the Allen triumph at the Convention and the uomina- ' tioa of Col. MediU were not socured by the most honorable means, and it may be that succeaa will be of that kind which only leads - to a final and disastrous defeat. It is quite certain that the defeated factions do not take the event very cooly and should they be- .come sufficiently exasperated to unite, with one enemy to conquer another; the combi nation would be too strong to be resisted. Wt de not think with some that the Miami Tnbc ii destroyed. It. members are not oade of that kind of stuff. A defeat only whets their appetrte. ..They united for the . spoil, and the same object will still bold them together. , They will fight harder to obtain the loaves and fishes, when they be- , ome hungered by lung fasting, and in the employment of means to secure success, they will not be saore choice than the Allen men are reported to have been at the late Con vention.

Pierce's Secretary of State; ner will he obtain any other seat in the cabinet. , A foreign mis.i jn is the best he can get and .even that is a matter of extreme doubt. . then u frontier settlement.

" On their arrivul at Buf fulo they were, after running the gauntlet, separated, and the father adopted into an In dian family, which had lost its head in war. He was kept in the family during the winter of 1781 and 1782, and was treated with much cruelty, and would have perished had it not been for the interference of a Unlink Indian agent by the name of Johnson, wlio took compassion upon tiiin.'sn J gave him re lief.

He then referred to the charge made by Mr. Ch that this construc tion was given to the treaty, without the consent or knowledge of the Senate, and that in this transaction the executive depart ment of General Taylor's administration had committed a great error.

Mr. Bell said that the annexa tion of that Island wou'.d be a curse to our intorests and calculated to produce a War. Ohio Legislature.

Great Excitement at Salem, Ohio. A new mode of tax gathering was attempted at Salem, Ohio, on the 3d iust., which has created in that town quite a muss. The Treasurer of Columbiana county, having cal led upon the Salem Bank fur tuxes assessed, several timet), und being refused, on the grounds that the tax wus levied on the cap ital instead of on the profits, entered the Bank with a posse armed with guns, revolv ers and sledges for the purpose of breaking open the vault, and seizing the requisite funds. At thisstate of the affray nn arnus tic was declared, for the purpose of calling the director, togetlie-, thut they might de cide whether they would or would not pay the tax so assessed. The directors met, and protested against paying, und by the means of guns, crowbars, &.O., drove the tax-gathering party out of the bunk.

At this stitge of uffuirs, the fluttered wuiuun quietly withdrew to a neighboring town; trusting a few week s ubsence would lull the passions of the excited players. Unaware of her absence, and reinforced oy two fine tenors from a troupe concertising in the pluce, "The Serenuders" proceeded to the accustornea seat, proud in the hope of a grand triumph. A full half hour passed up on the beautiful arias of Donizetti, followed by his "Twilight Voices" by the two tenors: tbo whole execution wus effective nud sweet; und we concluded to fill tho cup with the de licious "I love thee tenderly."

Here, not long since, the rustic vouth of the vicinity congreguted for a "dance," "and dance they did," said our informant, "with an unction unknown to our city belles and beaux." One iuterest ingyoung mun, having"iinbibed" rather too freely, became too "futiinied" in course of the evening, and wisely concluded to "re tire" for a short rest. A door a jar near the duncing-hail reveuled invitingly, a glimpse of a comfortable bed, of which he took possession with the prospect of an un disturbed "snooze." It ao happened, how beit, that this was the ladies' withdrawing room, and no sooner had ' he closed his eyes, than a pair of blooming dam sels came in from the hall, and began adjus ting their disordered ringlets, the dim light of the tullow candle not disclosing tho ten ant of the bed. The girls had tongues (like most of the "seek") which ran on in this wise: "What a nice 'danco' we're having! Have you heurd anybody say anything a bout me, June!" "Lu, yes, Sully! Jim Brown says he never see you look so hand same asyou do to-night. Have you heard anybody say anything about me!" "About ioul why, surtin:I heurd Joe Flint tell Sum Jones that you was the prettiest dressed girl in the roo.n." Whereupon the deur .things chuckled, "fixed up" a little more, und made off toward the ball-room.

They thank God that the Govern ment is not in the hands of such men as George Law, and the Ohio Locofoco Con vention.
