certain that the defeated factions do not take

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. On tho 4th, a
renewal of hostilities upon the bunk was ex
pected the result of which, we have not

on the beautiful arias of Donizetti, followed
by his "Twilight Voices" by the two tenors:

An Anxious Inquirer. Some two miles
up the river from St. Johnrtbiiry, Vermont,
is a primitive sort of a little village called
"The Centre." 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!
