The rain is pouring down in torrents while wo write tho mud is knee-deep in the roads all tho wintry elements, ex cept frost, arc busy hut the rrcort.E are here I The streets of Columbus present, despite tho weeping clouds, one solid mass of animated, joyous Republi cans, all clamorous for tho Hero ot lip pecanoe and the Thames. We watched the in-gathering of the People on Thursday and Friday, with a view to write a description of it. But wo cannot describe it. From the cast, the west, the north, and the south, the People poured in, in dense and continuous streams. On they came, rending the blue welkin with their shouts. 1 ho Van Burenilcs fled tho streets, and gave place to tho huge columns ot the Iruc Democ racy. Banners, ingenious in device and splendid in execution, loomed in the air; flags were streaming, and all the insignia of Freedom swept along in glory and in triumph. Canoes, planted on wheels, and manned by tho brave and generous friends of Harrison and 1 yler square rigged brigs log cabins even a minia ture of old Fort Meigs all these, and more, made up the grand sum of excite ment and surprise. The number of persons in attendance, ns members ot the convention, is various ly estimated at from twnlvo to twenty thousand. It is impossible to judge of tho number with accuracy, as but a very few of tho delegations have reported full lists ot their members. Numerous, how ever, as has been and is the crowd, all have been fed, and sheltered, and cherish ed. Not a single cheerless or disappoint ed face can be seen amid the vast assem blage. All is gaiety and good humor, and confidence op future success. Last night the committees appointed by the several delegations met, and nomina ted, as the candidate for Governor, our worthy and highly-gifted citizen THOMAS CORWIN. This nomination has received the un qualified approbation of the members of the Convention. That it will be hailed by the Harrison men of tho State with cordial and enthusiastic action is not to be doubted. The opponents of Van Buren in Ohio have come forward in their might, and have pledged themselves, on the altar of American liberty, to redeem Ohio from tho oppression of the spoilsmen. flyJust as our paper is going to press, we have the pleasure to state that the im mense throng, though wading in mud and exposed to the "pitiless pcltings" of tho rain, still exhibit tho best of spirits. All is joyous enthusiasm. A flame has been kindled that cannot bo quenched. Tho work of political reform in Ohio has been commenced in earnest. No obstacles', physical or moral, can retard it. Our friends of tho Convention will return to their abiding places, and they will carry with them tho fire, tho holy impulses, which sway them at this moment. Let the flamo blaze on ! The second Tucs day of October will concentrate its rays, and exhibit to the American Union, in ono intenso glare of glory, the proud talo of Ohio s political redemption. Uhxo State Journal, Feb. 22. CONNECTICUT. Hartford, Feb. 26, 1840. Oh that I had the pen of a ready writer, that 1 might givo you nn account of ono hall of wiiat an accidental visit to this placo this evening has enabled me to witness ol the indications of tho onward course of the good whig causo in old Connecticut. Tho gathering here, to-day, of tho whig young men ol this Jstate, to attend the Whig Young Men's Convention, is far beyond any thing of tho kind that has over beon known in Now England. 1 havo taken much pains to ascertain the number in attendance. It is universally computed, at, at least, 5000. Five hundred came up from Middlesex in the boat from Middlctown, and pledged themselves to the Convention to bring that County now the hot-bed of Locofocoism, out of tho contest with a strong Whig majority. Tho delegates from New Haven and the ad Joining towns, and tho towns along tho lino of the rail-road, numbered 700 when they arrived at Hartford, by actual count us they passed in procession irom tho urst preceded by un excellent bund of music, that had accompanied them to this place The ladies of the villages along the road turned out and greeted them as they passed with smiles and tho waving ot liaudkcrciuois. &o ovcrllowcuis me town that I have found it impossible to obtain lodgings, although it is known that four or fivo hundred ot the delegates icit town this afternoon. Tho Hotel keeper nforms mo that at tho time of the Loco- foco Convention last week, no differenco could be porcoived, cither at tho Hotels or m the streets, between the number of people about then and tho number us ually seen iierc, nnd I learn from other sources that 311 was the full number in attendance as delegates on that occasion. This is tho fact, notwithstanding the flourishing account published in tho Post. The Convention met in tno iiiy nan this morning, and organized by appoint ing Mr Hinsdale of Winchester, Presi dent, (tho other officers I have not heard) i .i i.. . ...i:..-.. and was oungeu iihihuui.iujij' iu imjuum to tho State House Yard, winch covers about half an acre, and this was full to overflowing. This evening they ad journed to Union and City Halls, at both of which places I attentieci, anu iounu them crowded to tho brim. Tho latter hall was handsomely decorated with flags festooned from the ceiling, and tho walls were covered with mottos and extracts from whig documents and speeches, and among them was conspicuous extracts from the late excellent speech of Senator Davis, an edition ot 7UUU ol wnicn lias been published here, and which has alrca dy turned more than one honest locofoco in this town from the error of Ins political ways. Over tho President's Chair was placed a transparency, containing a log cabin, in front of which the farmer of North Bend was represented, with coat and vest both off, holding a plough, and over him perched tho American Eagle holding a scroll in his beak, on which was inscribed, "Wni. H. Harrison, the Cincinnattus of America." I have nev er witnessed a more enthusiastic assem blagc of freemen, and never heard louder or more enthusiastic voices raised, even in Fancuil Hall. The way this immense throng sung Haydcn's whig song, which was printed and distributed about the meeting, could not but have done a Boston Whig good Not the least encouraging feature of the Convention was that amidst all this en thusiasm they were not inclined to over rate their strength, and the burden of the speeches which I heard was tho necessity of going home and going to work, and not trust to mero enthusiasm to do the business. They estimate their majority at 5000. There is no mistake about Convention's having struck with dismay tho hearts of the torics here. They feel that their fate is sealed, and that they are irrecoverably down in the land of steady habits. lVhnt John ITT. IViles Hnynof den. Ilnrrixon. "Oh thatminc enemy had torittcnabook," In the life of Perry, by John M. Nilcs, late Senator iu Congress, and the present Tory candidate for Governor in Connec ticut, is the following well merited com plimentary notico of the civil and milita ry services of WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON. We commend them to tho especial attention of our Locofoco friends, and ask with all duo respect, is John M. Nilcs entitled to credit or is he not? If tho latter, why is such a one nominated to tho highest honors of his of his State 1 If the former then read these extracts, ye Tory calumniators of a great and good man, and continue your falsehoods if you have sufficient assurance to do so. In speaking of the battle of the Thames Mr. Niles bears testimony to tho impor tance of that valiant victory, and General Harrison's gallant and prudent conduct, in the following words : 'It is admitted that tho American for ces considerably exceeded those of the enemy ; but when it is considered that tho latter had chosen their own position that they had taken ono peculiarly la vorablc for defence, effectually securing their flanks, it being impossiblo to turn them, and that the Americans could pre sent a line no more extended than that of the enemy, which was too limited to ad mit of tho activo employment ot all their troops ; nnd when it is further considered, that the troops were almost entirely militia, it must be conceded that this victory rcjlcctcd great honor upon the national arms, and upon the troops by whom it was achieved. " The action, and the movements which preceded, afford ample testimony of the Judgement and cool intrepidity of GJJNIUIAI. J1AKS1SUJS; and in deed, all the events of the campaign, sup port these characteristics; the dis asters attending it, naoing in no instance been imputable to him. " '1 hero are, pornaps, on record, lew instances of such cool and steady intropi dity, on tho part of tho militia, or a force of this description, as wus displayed on this occasion. " The victory of tho Thames was not moro honorable iu its character, than im portant in its consequences. It tormina ted tho war on tho northwestern frontier, which during fifteen months had been drenched in blood and stained with crimes thousands of tho most patriotic sons ol tho west, having fallen victims to its rav ages and disasters, Tho savage war-yell was heard no more ; and tho frightful tomnhawk no longer reeked with tho blood of innocence, Infancy uud age., " Harrison and Perry left Detroit in tho Ariel, and arrived at Erio on the 22d of October. Hero they were received with every demonstration of joy and ad miration: tho dischargo of cannon, illu minations, &c. They were hailed as the deliverers of the frontiers." Tho following is from tho Appendix to tho same : " Tho civil administration of Gen. Harrison, although not marked with such brilliant circumstances as his military operations, was, notwithstanding, man nered with ctiuul judgment. The defenco of Fort Meigs and the subsequent cap- turo ot tho lintisii army, may uo miny considered one of the most brillant and extraordinary events ol the lato war. These were his last military achievmcnts. Atreaty of poaco was concluded with Great Britain, nnd his services being no longer wanted, ho retired with " iii.usshino HONORS THICK UPON HIM " tO tllO l)OSOm of his friends and to the enjoyment of do mestic happiness. " In the preface to tho above work, Mr. Niles says : "Tho facts and materials which tho work comprises, havo beon derived from authentic sources, and whatever may be thought of it in other respects, it is hum bly believed, that so far as industry in research, and care in compilation, can insure historic correctness and accuracy of detail, it possesses these essential char acteristics." MR. RIVES. Tho following concluding portion of a letter from Mr. Rives, published in tho Charlottesville Republican of tho 20th ult, will show most fully the views of that gentleman rolativo to the Harrisburg nomination. If any one had any doubts before of the soundness of his views, they must now bo all removed. Ho has most fully committed himself in favor of the man of the people. Tho illustrious Vir ginia Senator regards Gen. Harrison as tho only 'true Refuiilican Candidate,' and consequently the only ono to whom he can give support. Regarding General Harrison, for tho reasons 1 have mentioned, as the true lie- publican candidate for the Presidency of the two now presented to the choice of the country, 1 shall unhesitating give him my support. I shall do so with the more cheerfulness because, while best consulting thereby, as I honestly believe, those great Republican principles which I have over considered to be inseparably united with tho happiness of my country, 1 shall as sist to confer its highest meed on an emi nent citizen who has rendered it the most signal and important services at a time, when to serve meant something fur other than merely to receive tho emoluments of olhce on one who, having successively onioyed the confidence ot Washington, Jefferson and Madison, would bo naturally prompted to emulate their high example who, in all various and delicato trusts he has held, has ever shewn that ho pre ferred his country to himself, and has re tired irom them all, amid the numerous and alluring temptations they presented to private gain, with clean hands nnd un suspected honor, naither guilty ot infideli ty himselt uor winking at it in others and who now in tho honorable retirement of private life, combining the ennobling pursuits ot the agriculturalist, the scholar, and the iatriot-citi,en, is emphatically one of the people, knowing how to appre ciate their interests, as well as to main tain and defend their rights. I cannot doubt that the principles we havo held in com' men will have brought us to a common con clusion ; but whether this should be tho case or not, you will, I am sure, do mo the justice to believe that in forming tho judgment I have done, upon the most de liberate and careful reflection, I have been actuated by no personal feeling, by no more party views, but by a sincere and anxious wish for tho liberty, happiness and honor of my country. I am very respectfully and truly your friend, W. C. RIVES. VIRGINIA & PENNSYLVANIA. Wo mado up our minds, whon Harrison was first nominated, not to allow our selves, upon any considerations, to be lieve that ho could carry either of tho grcnt States of Virginia or Pennsylvania, although wo hrmly behoved that ho could be elected without either of them. But wo confess wo find it difficult to keep to our resolution, for tho signs of tho times aro so indisputable, and tho accounts ol tho leclmg there so strong, that we can not but hope, wo havo moro than an equal chance for both of them. In Virginia tho Whigs havo nominated electors who aro acustomcd to public speaking and who will travorso tho wholo tstato and thomgh ly canvass every part of it. Our friends aro full of confidence nnd hope for tho Old Dominion. In Pennsylvania, too, tho namo of Harrison is tho watchword at which tho people aro gathering in crowds. All over tho Stato we hear of Harrison meetings, and Harrison speeches, and re solutions, and conventions. It will bo rc membcred that Van Buren got Pennsyl vania by a voiy small majority, and that tho contest was for u long while doubtful. Tho prospect certainly looks favorable for Virginia and Pennsylvania to swell tho majority of the old hero of I ippocanoo ; but with them or without them, ho must bo our noxt President. ProvidcUcc Journal. Washing-ion, Thursday, Feb. 201 h, In the Houo of Representatives, ihii morning, we hud a very iniernting xpo euro of tho manner in winch "hmieat A nine" manage the afTnira of tho Post Office Department, and converts it into a political electioneering engine, for the ben cfit of that pseudo-democracy of which ho aspires to bo (ho head and chief. Mr. Graves, of Kentucky, introduced a prcamablo and resolutions, sustained by documentary evidence, declaring that one E. W. Rodinbon. formerly a Postmaster

at Winchester. Va., and more recently a Clerk in the General Post Office, in this city, has for aome months past resided at Frankfort, Ky., and conducted a Van Bu ren papor at that place, called tho "Ken tucky Yeoman." while at the soma time, he lias received pay at the rate of $1200 per annum, as a Clerk in the Post Office Department, and has employed a substitute to perform his duties, at about $40 per month, or $500 per annum and all this wiin the knowledge and consent ot Air. Kendall himself. Mr. Graves made this charge in a speech which ho delivered in the House a lew days since, and being de sirous to ascertain the truth ofthestory be fore he gave the speech to the country, through tho nowspapors, he wrote n letter to Mr. Kendall, stating the charge that ho had made, and proposing several inter rogatories, to which ho wished a direct an ewer : 1st, whether tho said tt. w. iiob- inson was recently employed as a Clerk in ihe General Post Office, and if so, at what salary? 2d, Whether he had ceased to occupy that station, end if so, when he re sinned i 3d, Whether, if still a LiierK in the Department, ho acted in person, end if not, who performed his duties, and what sum was paid the substitute f Mr. Kendall returned a very singular, uui able and ingonious answer. He said, among other things, that ho did not deny the right of the members of the House to interrogate the Departments in relation to public business; but heoiu deny ineir rigni to becomo the retailors of 'malignant gos sip on the floor of Congress, and then to call upon the offices of government to prove the truth or falsehood of their assertions. Ho regretted, ho said, that the idea of do ing justice to him did not occur to the honorable gentleman before he ultered the charge alluded to. If he had called upon him before he delivered his speech, ho might have furnished him with all the in formation he desired ; but under the cir cumstonces, he declined assisting him to make up a speech different from that which he had delivered on thijlonr ! Air. Graves produced certain proceedings of the Van Buren Association of the Dis trict of Columbia, by which it appeared that Robinson the Clerk mentioned above, was President of that Society in December Inst, and that he resigned his office about the 1st of Jsn. with the intention of leaving the city of Washington for a distant part of the counrty. Also a draft for glOO, drawn upon the Post Offico Department in favor of ono Charles J. Nourec, dated January 1, 1840, and signed by Robinson, by which it would appear that he received a portion of his salary as Clerk for the pre sent year, in advance, previous to leaving the city, and that tho whole affair must have been known to Mr Kendall or his de puties. Mr Graves moved that the whole sub ject be referred to tho Committee on Post Offices and Post Roads, with instructions to consider and report upon the supposed enso of mat-administration in the Post Of fice Department, and also upon tho expe diency of reducing the salaries of the Clerk in that Department : and that the Com mittee havo power to send for persons and papers. The Locofocos. on all sides, objected to the reference. Mr. Graves then moved to suspend the rules, for the purpose of putting Ihe question or reference to tho House; but Mr. Kendall's laithlui ueien dcrs refused tn permit this dangerous in vestigalion, by a vole of 82 Nays, to 118 Yeas. A vote oftwo thirds ot the mem bers present is required to suspend the rules. So the matter was passed by for the present. THE WHOLE STORY. Conclusion of Clay's Speech on the Sulilre.nury. "No true patriot can contemplate the course of the party in power without the most pamlul and mortiliett icetings, They began some years ago their war on the Bank of the United States. It was daiiiicrous to liberty: it had failed to fulfil the purposes ot its institution , u uiu not furnish a sound currency, although the sun, in all its course never shone upon a better ; it was, in short, a monster, which was condemned to death, and it was exe cuted accordingly. During tho progress of that war, tho Stato banks were tho constant theme of praise, in speech and song, of the dominant party. They wcro tho best institutions in tho world, free from all danger to public liberty, capable of carrying on all tho exchanges of the country, nnd of performing tho financial duties to Government, and of supplying a far better currency for the Pcoplo than tho Bank of tho United States. Wo told you that tho Stato Bank would not do, without tho co-operation of a Bank of tho United States. Wo told you that you would find them a weak league a mero licet of open boats tied together by a hickory witho, and which the first storm would disporso and upset. But you scorn ed all our warnings, and continued year after year to pufl'und praiso tho operations of thoso hanks. You had the boldness, iu tho face of this abused nation, to aver that tho country had beon supplied by them with a better currency, and better exchan ges than it had been by tho bank of tho United States! Well, by your own measures, byyour Troasury Circular,fcc. you accelerated tho cataatropho of the suspension of the banks. You began with promises to tho People of better currency, better times, moro security to civil liberty; and you end with no currency at all, the worst possible times, an incrcaso of Ex ecutivo power, and a consequent increase of danger to civil liberty. You began with promises to fill tho pockets of the people, and you end with emptying theirs and filling your own." FLORIDA BLOOD HOUNDS. A correspondent of the St. Augustino Herald, who aeema to boa lively amateur of tho impemding sport, describes the pack in the following passage with great gusto:, They aro thirty-four in number five or six old dogs, well trained, tho remainder younger some, I should think, not a year old, ono of these, a lady bloodhonnd, walked about the village with me as familiarly and lovmgiy as a spaniel ; out ner xinancss was inoperativo upon the rest of her clan, for such a set of ferocious beasts I never before saw. That modern Daniel, Van Amburg, who goes among tho hon9, would ataud no chance among them. When any living thing approaches one of the older dogs, his eyes flash, ho roars with rage, and twists like a serpent to escape from his chains. The keepers havo them under subjection, but have frequently to maintain quiet order by inflicting heavy blows with a cudgel, when the dog lies down with an air which seem to say, 'I will be civil to ac commodate you ; but d n your stick,' for they neither wince nor howl. 11 A few days since, as an experiment, a negro was sent a mile into the woods to climb a tree, and in on hour afterwards a dog was put upon trail ; he followed it di rect through all tho windings of the bushes without faulting. The only question is. will they follow the trail of an Indian f If they will, they will be a great acquisition to the country ; for as to fighting. I am satisfied they would grapple with anything The way two or three of them would rattle a dozen Indians off a scrub or a bay-gall would be nobody's business. I can only add, that I am much pleased with the bloodhounds, and, and would like no bet ter fun than taking a hunt with them. " IN. is. We hope there is no truth in the report that tho Seminoles have sent lo old Spain for a pack of these dogs of the origi nal old Cortez blood, which are said to be much more savage than their cis Atlantic descendants. It would be just like those cruel-mindnd Indians so ruthless in their devices. JV. Yorker. From the NewYorkJCommercial Adv. ANOTHER SPLENDID BROADWAY HOTEL. To thp great attractions which the city of New York has heretofore presented for strangers, in ho r line hotels, another now added in the extensive and beautilul establishment just completed, and to be opened on Monday, 2d March next, by Mr D. D. Howard, former proprietor of the Exchange Hotel, in Broad-street. This edifice, the property of James McBride. Esq. and the R'tter estate. Floyd smith Esq. agent, covers four lots of ground. three of which with the buildings belong to the former gentleman, and one to the said estate, and has been erected expressly for Mr. Howard, at an expense of over $100,000 for the buildings alone. It upon the corner of Broadway and Maiden lane, having a tront on iiroadway ot over 100 feet, and upon Maiden lane of SO feet, with the wings extending back 135 feet : i six stories high, and built in the most sub statitial manner. The interior of this establishment stir passes, in some respects, the celebrated A6tor House, or the far-famed Tremnnt of Boston. The spacious halls on the first and second floors aro paved with Italian marble tile. The dining-rooms are spa cious and elegant apartments, the floors o which, as well as those of the other prin cipal rooms, are likewise of marble. The whole of the front building is so arranged as to be thrown into parlors, with conve nient. sleeping-rooms attached. There arn over 200 bed-chambers, exclusive of publ c and private parlors, dining and other room all well lighted, with a grate in each, nnd furnishing ample accommodations for 350 guests. Tho domestic conveniences are of the very first order. In the attic of one of the wings are the laundry rooms, in which is a lank that will at all times contain a large body of water, and in case of fire, hose may be attached to a pipe connected with the reservoir in each slory. In addition to this, there are about the premises severn force pumps, of great copacity, which can be brought to bonr upon fire in an instant and that the giics' of the hotel many fee perfeetly safe, Mr Howard intends having temporary passages constructed from one building to another, thereby affording his guests a sale retreat in tho worst event. This is as it should be ; for while ground is so expensive, our hotels have lo bo bull high ; lew ofthern are less than five sto, ries high, and Imanv still higher and though ihe upper stories are in all cases the most pleasant, yet very many, stran gers in particular, object to taking high rooms, tor no other reason than their fears of not being able to make an easy escape in case ot tire. Mr. Howard's plans and arrangements will be in keeping with tho excellence o the building, provided for him. Having three large dining rooms, meals are to be sorved in ono at early hours, to suit In convenience of busines men, in another at the usual Broadway lime, and in the ladies ordinary at different hours, to suit thotasic and convenience of such as may wish to take their meals early or late. The whole of tho numerous and costly arrangements for the comfort and conve nience ot the guests reflect great credit upon the liberality of the owners, and skill of the architect and builders, whose nameB we annex : Wm. Hurry, architect : Amos Woodruff, mason; and Piatt & Merserau, carpenters and joiners. Mr. Howard pos sesses great skill and tact in the manage ment of a hotel, and with the advantages of a location equal to any in the cily, and an establishment equal to any on tho con tinent, he will be sure to mako " Howard's Hotel " one of tho moBt popular and de lightful bouses iu the city. Coi Johnson Thrown! Tho Vir ginia Administration Stato Convention at Richmond havo nominated Governor Polk, of Tennessee, for tho Vice Presi dency, and refused to go into a National Convention ! Madisonian. GREAT BRITAIN AND CHINA. It may bo John Bull's intention to Havo n bout at fisty-cufls with tho Celes tial Longtails, after nil. Tho following intelligence, received this morning in a letter from London, certainly looks some thing like it. Tho letter is dated Decem ber Tho Pantaloon brig of war, which ailed from Plymouth about thrco weeks since, relieved a sloop, which proceeded forthwith to the South American station, it is supposed to order some of tho ves sels on that station to join tho East India quadron. "The Nimrod, sixteen, is fitting at Plymouth for tho East Indics,..and ex pected to sail in thrco weeks. "The JJlcnlieim, seventy-tour, relitting at Portsmouth, loins tho Last India nuadron as quickly as possible, and cur ries out four of the large guns for throw ing hollow shells, for the Admiral s ship Wcllcsly, seventy-four. "The Blonde, forty six, and 1'iquo, thirty-six, aro also going from Ports mouth to tho same destination. Also, tho Thalia, forty six, and Wan derer, sixteen, fitting a Shccrncss, and tho Cyclops steam frigate fitting in the Last India dock." N. Y. Com. Adv. MEXICO. The news from Mexico is of a very contradictory character. At ono time wo hear of tho Federalists being triumphant; at another, that the Centralists are all powerful. For the last few days wo have had accounts of the growing strength and improving fortunes of the Federalists. To-day wo lay before our readers an ex tract from a lotter of a lato date to a mer chant of New Orleans, which gives a very different aspect to Mexican affairs. The writer, it will be seen is in favor of the Centralists, tho existing Govern ment. His statements may nevertheless,, be correct. iV, O. Bee. Matamoras, Jan. 15. On the 8th inst. wo received the pleas ant intelligence that General Arista had defeated the Federal forces near Santinos; and by an express, who arrived here yesterday, we are informed that Canales, with a small lorcc, had crossed the ilio Grande at Mier, and that the greater part of the Federalist had retired to their homes. January 19. Tho civil dissensions in this section of the country aro agreeably, to all appearances, terminated for tho present ; the country folks aro bringing in their produce, and our market is assum ing livelier appearance ; our communica tion with Monterey is again opened, and every thing denotes the return of tran quility. An express arrived this morning Irom General Arista, bringing the intelligence that the commander of the Texans, under Canales, has been mado a prisonor, and has been taken to Monterey, whero ho will no doubt bo shot. Tltn EFFECT OF THE Sun-TREASURY upon Manufactures. The advocates of the sub-treasury say that it will benefit the manufacturing interest ; and how ? by reducing the prices o f labor. Do tho people want such a benefit ? But the ma nufacturing interest will reap no bonefit from the reduction. The price of labor will be reduced, it is true, the disadvan tage to the laboring classes will be certain but a far greater disavantagc will ensuo to tho manufacturing interest in the re duction of the prices of property. If a man owns a mill worth nlty thousand dollars and owes thirty thousand dollars, his mill, under the hard money system, will be worth only twenty-five thousand dollars, and instead of being worth twenty thousand dollars clear, he is five thousand dollars worse than nothing. Tho em ployed all sink into one common ruin. ft53 It has been frequently asserted that General Harrison enjoyed a very lu crative oflice, and it has even been said that his fees amounted to from $5000 to 810,000 per annum. The Cincinnatti Republican contradicts this, and says that the emoluments of tho office amount to little or nothing. At ono time it was tho only civil court in Hamilton county, and then tho oflice was valuable, but lately a new court has been established at Cin cinnatti, which takes nine-tenths of tho business. Resuption in Pensylvania. Tho Harrisburg Telegraph of Thursday says, the bill for the immediate resumption of specie payments by tho Bank of Penn sylvania, was ordered to a third reading on Wednesday by a decided vote. Tho banks aro to rcsumo upon the bill's be coming a law. It must bo sent to tho House of Representatives for concurrence boing essentially different from tho bill sent from that House. Tayloii Dkvendev. A tailor, instead of being the ninth part of a man, possesses the qualities of nine men combined as fol lows : 1. As an economist, he cult his garments according to his clotb. 2 As a gardener, he is careful of his cabage. 3. As a cook, he provides himself with a hot gooso. 4. As a sheriffs office, he does much at sponging- 5. As an executioner, he furnishes many gallowses. 6. As a general, he brandishes not a sword but a bare bodkin. 7. As a sailor, he shears off whenever he thinks necessary, 8, Aa a lawyer, he lends to many tvits. 9. As a christian and divine, it is lite chief aim to form good habits for himsolf and others. I think enough has been said to do away with the approbrium so often cast upon tho knights of the thimble and needle, to in duce the fraternity to unite and contribute a suit of clothes lo their friend aud uuubl setveul.
