Tho tabular statement exhibits tho actual quantity cut tin ring the pist year at about 110 tons of leaf to. hacco. The manufacture of cigars is also con ducted here ; qualities ranging from I to 8 10 per thousand ; consuming nearly 110,000 lbs. of tobacco. About twenty persons aro engaged at this branch. Tho whole establishment of snuff, tobacco and cigars employs between 60 and 100 persons.

Among theso are two which wo deem of great importance: tiio one regulating common schools, the oth er abolishing tho school fund, and paying off tiio btato Debt. Tho Slato is now snuare with tho world, and no individual now living lias boon taxed a fartliing to do it. But llio locofocos liavo assured their readers for tiio last tlirco or four yeats that the abolishment of this paper fund would deprive our schools of llio support they are now annually receiv ing, and that tiio school houses would at onco bo closed. Very wcdl. the deed is dono : llio school fund is abolished ; and now we hoscocli every man, woman and child in the community to observe, closely, and sen if tliey can perceive any difference. Sen whether the schools go on as usual, whether you get your public money as usual, and whether your taxes are any more than usual I The proof of a good pudding is in the eating. This is now fairly served up, and wo are willing lo bi Jo the result. THE OREGON QUESTION. It his been understood that a negotiation was pending, with tho hope of adjusting the Oregon controveisy before llio meeting of Congress so as lo obviate the necessity of another debate on that question. For this purpose it was that Mr. Mc Lano consented to takn tho mission to St. James. Out things havo taken u now t,icl. Mr. Folk wants a re-election, nnd Oiegon must he ins capital.

THE SCHOOL HOUSE. Now is tho time, fur our farmers lo com mence preparing for tho winter school. We aro afraid the iuiportaiire of this school busi ness is tuo much undented. In tho first place, it is all important thai iho school room slioulel bu a comfortable houso ; not a rickety old bam with half the windows out, and the wind howling through tin) cracks. Children cannot study, with every thing uncomfortable around them. Their health must he intended lo, unless you want thein coming home m ., ,, , , ,i , night with colds, coughs and favers, and bo- forc (ho winter is half out, compelled to slay at home, and luso ball the uonelit ol thu school. Then, wo beg yoti not to luro a teacher, because you can got his services cheaply. Yuur cheap teachers tiro not tho thing. This education is a matter for life : and economy in litis business is misplaced- Your hoys and girls aro forming habits, anil receiving impressions which lust always, good fjrnicr would not engage a vicious or incompetent man to break his cuttlo for him no, not if he would do it at half price. And, lustly, when you have got a good school houso and a good teacher,, don't imagine that you havo finished llio business. Every man, who sends to thn school, should lake interest enough in it, to call in occasionally, nnd sco how tho school comes on. A firmer would hardly set a stranger nt work in his field, and pay him a sound price, without looking in to sco irtho business went on properly. Let thu teacher feel, and llio children see that yon attach somo kind of importance to their menial and moral training; it will encourage and stimulate tliitui both to greater usefulness and activity.

Tho proclamation is not published as horetolorc, in handbill form. The Clergy men of ihe several denominations, who may be disposed to read il from their pulpits, are, therefore, requested to use, for that purpose, lite papers in which they may find it pub lished. MvsTr.ttious. Tho Worcestci Trans cript of yesterday relates tho following singu lar occurrence : " Wo learn from Mr.. Stowell of this town, who was engaged dur ing lust week in moving a laign house, to make room for un extensive block of slo.es, on tho Dr. Shutluck place, at the corner of Sudbury nhd Court streets in Boston, that, on Friday, uhilo digging fur tho new foun dation of the cellar and below the surface of tho ground, tho workmen discovered a vault bricked upon each side with a 1G inch wall, and a space within 5 feet longand 18 inch es wide, tiio whole covered with bricks to the thickness of 3 feet, and solid that when all but the last layer of bricks had been re moved, several blows with a heavy crowbar wore necessary lo break into lite cavity. Tito workmen wore much animated, expect ing lo find a hidden treasure, when, lo and behold, it contained human bones in a stnte of great preservation I Even the hair re nt lined on the skull I When, by whom, or for wlnit purpose, this vault was made and its tenant enclosed, arc involved in pro found mystery."

A few years ago ho courted and married a young lady who had two sisters, possessing among them a largo fortune. His wife died,, and by somo means her share of the proper ty did not fill tu him, but lemnini'd in pos session nl the two survivi.ig sisters. He couttod and married the second ono, who in lliu menu time h id nrrive-el at womanhood.

In Iho meantime the third sis ter camu to m.itiuity. What did our hero ilo but court anil many her. 'Ho didn't do any thing else I' and is now in possession of tho whole fortune origin illy left to tho three sisters ! If any one doubt this romantic and singular story they will find il fully confirm ed by enquiring in Scioto county.
