These Are Tho simple facts of the Case and they have made it impossible for the whigs of his District to give him their Confidence or we think this it most unjust. The whig i Neinhuis from this state Washburn Ben son and others to our certain knowledge had no doubt of or.

A novel Waco our attention has Boon called on several occasions to n double horse Wagon which frequent our streets of n somewhat novel construction Ami different from any thins of the cart or Wagon kind which Ever Cumo under our Olsop Antion. Tho plan of Trio topic to if it in proper to Call it such originated with or. N Athan l Kimball and it is used for Tho conveyance of bricks from or. A s Yard to Tho places of Sale. It is really a Wagon having four wheels but by a very simple arrangement is so constructed As to combing Tho Edvun Tnge of both a cart and Wagon. The for Ward wheel which arc a Little smaller than such arc usually made Are placed upon an Axl tree just Tho Width of Tho body of the Wagon Ami by Means of in elevated Rocker attached to Tho Axl tree with a Tran Yijin Bolt which allows Tho talc Trio turn Tho in Fly is Mado level and can u tipped in the same manner that a cart i ripped i discharge the Load. We Aro not quiz sure but it would Requiro a Small amount More of Power to incl a Load of equal weight in this cart than it would in a i horse cart but or. Kimball thinks not. At any Rato it advantage Over a Colimon cart will to obvious to any one who will of. Amine it it relieves be nurses fro i any weight exempting the pole and thus enables Thorn to apply their whole strength to the hauling of Tho loud and in disc ending Lulu such a Vezich must Havo Groat advantaged Over the common cart. It would to an improvement to make co Ninou Bugy wagons and All four wheeled pleasure carriages after this plan As they May to turned in Small space and with no Dan Ger of Over setting. We Hope that or. K. May to enabled to turn his improvement to Good advantage to himself. It certainly re quires Sone Genius to study out an improve ment in Carriage making which shall have Tho advantages of a cart and Wagon and if or. Kilt null has d be this he is deserving of his Reward. Morto at to wild. N. P.

Tho Possession of a considerable amount of Money with the period immediately succeeding the murder Tsoo Salod with the proof that on the Day on which it was gup Posod to be committed Smith sold his Wallet for nine Euce and admitted his destitution of Money is another feature of evidence that he has been the Cihy party.
