A Strong Effort was made to Leader among them who Are Ever ready to j subject All the Railroad companies in the com Truckle like whipped dogs to Southern dictation. I Mon wealth to the same provisions but it was test barter and sell our highest interests for the conceived that this course was adopted by cer Ajce of bringing Southern rulers Over us and for perpetuating the Southern domination this Craven policy has too Long been the besetting sin of All parties and it is High time the people should set political leaders right on this subject. Our readers will probably be surprised to a learn that senators Douglas of Iii. And Atchison of Missouri representing states deeply interested in its passage. Loth opposed the Hill. Why ibis abandonment of duty or. Douglas is suspected of playing for the presidency in Futro. Tiny May explain his vote especially As it has hitherto been the practice of most Northern politicians both great and Small to parser to Southern prejudices. As for senator and whoa it is enough to say of his that he went to Washington a perfect Green Horn in politics and was at once Soa a cd Over and swallowed whole by a the chivalry a to whom he has faithfully played second fiddle Ever since. Of Sueh is the kingdom of politics for the most part.

The congregations of the Synod were recommended to take up collections in Aid of this purpose. The Synod also approved of the proposal to establish a line of steamships to Africa. Tit we be Peak the special attention of our readers for or. A. B. I Anthrop an enterprising trunk maker at St Louis whose name appears among our new advertisements. None can have a better claim to favor and patronage than the Man who expends the Best energies of the prime of life to increase the Quantity and improve the Quality of articles so generally useful. His trunks in All varieties Are kept by b. C. Armstrong k co. Of this City. Pork tables prepared by our Cincinnati exchanges who have an Eye always for the porcine mortality we learn that the total deficiency in pork for 1850-51 amounts to about 122.342,000 pounds equivalent to 512,-708 hogs at 210 pounds each. This gives us $6.-000.000 less Money received this year for the single article of pork than was received last Yea r. Beside this there is a corresponding falling off in lard amounting to 14,203,419 pounds equivalent $12251,000. Here we have Over seven millions of dollars deficiency in the hog Trade of the West. This is confirmed by the receipts at new Orleans for the two past years. In 1h49-50 there were received at that port 4.56 ,2t� pounds Hulk pork while in 18�?T0 but 595.160 pounds were received. In barrels and pierces there were re the effect of Plank reads. A correspondent of the Chicago Tribune gives upon the authority of w. King Ford Engineer on the Hudson River Railroad the following facts showing the effect of Plank roads on the Trade of towns and the value of the Road As an investment but the most surprising statements in the Book referred to relate to the effect of Plank roads upon the Trade of towns and the value of property along their lines. The traffic Over a Road of eleven Miles leading into Albany whle a was Fini red in the fall of 89f has increased 110 per rent., and farms along the line 20 per rent in value. A Road from Fonda to Lake c Arago. In Hamilton county has raised the value of lands at the latter place from 50 cents to $2 and $3. And has reduced the Price of fire Wood at Fonda from $6 to $2 75, at which it can now always be purchased. One Hundred and sixty three Miles of Plank Road Nav he considered tributary to Tiea. And they have increased Lier business 100 per cent., her property 15 per cent., and her population 25 per cent. They have also lessened the Price of Cord Wood one Dollar and a half and As 35.0<k cords Are annually consumed in Utica $52.000 Are annually save to the inhabitants which would build 30 Miles of Plank Load. Rome is the Centre of 148 Miles of Plank Road which has increased the storage and forwarding business 33 1-3 per cent., and doubled the amount of travel. Ninety nine Miles of Plank mad run into Syracuse doubling the population and raising the value of real estate from 15 to 50 per rent., depending on localities and reducing the Price of fire Wood from 6 to $2 50 a Cord at the same time making the Wood Worth 50 cents per Cord More standing. On the 75,000 cords annually brought from the surrounding country $2622 00 Are saved to the inhabitants which i Ould build 131 Miles of Road each year. Oswego has leading into it 112 Miles of Plank Road enhancing the value of property 25 per cent and doubling the retail Trade. There is now constructing about Rochester 130 Miles of Plank Road raising a he value of City property 25 per cent and the value of lands near the City about 50 per cent. Time will allow me to give or. Kingsford a facts on Only one other Point and that is the value of Plank roads As an investment. The Troy and i Dansingburg Road has paid off a debt of $1,400, and divides 20 per cent per annul besides laying by a sinking fund. The Rome and Utica Road in twelve months has paid off a $4,000 debt and is expecting to Divide 20 per cent. The Utica and Frankfort finished in october. 1849, has paid 10 per cent. The Utica and Burlington 20 per cent. The Rome and Turin earned $12,000 the first six months on a Cost of $50.000. The Salma Central Square Road is Worth now $110 per share on $<0 paid in. The Salma. Liverpool and Clay pays 10 per cent. The Rome and Oswego i per cent both reserving sinking funds. The Allens Creek Road. Rochester is so profitable that the directors refuse to make any statement. The Aurora and Buffalo Road divides 25 per cent. The above Are the facts connected with some of the Plank roads in new York the few which have been properly built and managed in Illinois have yielded monstrous returns which when known must Render these roads a favorite investment. This will form an important adjunct to our railroads and the Day is near at hand when our state will be traversed in All directions by them. Washington March 4, 1851�?ccneral Foote and the last Iona Day s session of the Senate the Cost balance in hit to the interpretation of the two houses the last legislative Day of the Short session is thirty six hours Long and the fourth of March does not constitutionally commence till the Middle of the Day. The last Days session of the Senate however was thirty seven consecutive hours duration. A during that Long Day from the beginning to the end. General Foote was present and vigilant a a Lynx to defeat the River and Harbor Bill. According to our recollection he did not speak less than forty three times during that Long Day including speeches questions and explanations and sprung up from time to time from no less than seventeen different chairs now on this now on that Side always on the move and forever claiming the floor or asking leave or a single remark. If All that he said in debate during that Day of third seven hours is printed in the two official organs it will amount in each paper to an average of twelve co tums or Twenty four in the aggregate Twenty four col urns at $7 50 $180 00 pay for thirty six hours 1200 total 192 00 Cost of senator Foote to the Treasury for one Days debate one Hundred and ninety two dollars but he May plead in contributing to save $2,316 000 in defeating the River and Harbor Bill and $100,000 in defeating the claim of father Ritchie.

Mabcy-1 Good thing Welt Good dinners were of Roure. As thick As blackberries last evening and there were not a few private parties where parting scenes and a gathering tears might Hare been witnessed Anong those who were reluctantly bidding Farewell to the incidents of the Winters Gai ties. At one of these grand dinners a very distinguished party of about 100 were accidentally thrown together. Among those present were most of the foreign ministers leading members of the government distinguished members of Congress and last not least and i so place them that they May be brought in connection Gen. Scott and governor Marey. In the Early part of the evening. Ten. Scott in the enjoyment of the advantage which his tall form affords him Assembly of guests a a espied or. Marcy in another port of the room. It Inay not be known these two distinguished men have not exchanged a Friendly word since or. Polkas Secretary of War opened that fire in the rear a which the american general so much dreaded before he set out for Mexico. Upon seeing or. Marcy. Gen. Scott immediately observed a a there a Marcy i must go and speak with him for the first time since our pen and Ink contest a a movement which the Gen err la a friends standing near him warmly Over to where or. March was standing. General Scott tendered his hand with a Graceful offer of a renewal of Friendship and forgetfulness of the past. Or. Marcy grasping it replied in touching and appropriate terms. But the crowning act of Tai Beautiful and rare occurrence among Public men was yet to come. The cloth having being removed and toasts embellished with speeches being the order a Igor. Marcy quot was Given with an appropriate compliment to his Fame As a statesman. He Rose to reply with some apparent embarrassment which was however momentary. He proceeded to say with much modesty that As his Public career Hall been alluded to he could Only say that his too partial Friend in his own state had bestowed office upon him at different times and that they had even ventured to make him governor of Little reputation might be acquired in an office that quiet character. Was very much confined not Only to the limit of his of n state but he feared to limits much smaller than the area of that state. He Felt assured that there were thousands of people i new York w to had a very Small opinion of his poor abilities. It was True that in consequence of an erroneous opinion or. Polk had formed of him. He was Okic of posted Secretary of War. And in that said or. Marcy i was still More unfortunate. All the Honor i gained was hut by reflection reflection from the Brilliant deeds of those bowing very gracefully to Gen. Scott with whom As the head of that department l was in some manner this in not a Short hand report of the precise language of any of the parties but it May be relied upon a the substance of what occurred. It would be difficult to describe the degree of gratification which it afforded to those present and it would not be difficult to Tell whether the company most admired the Frank offer of conciliation. Made by Gen. Scott or the exceeding Beauty and Good taste of the Well turned compliment with we hich or. Marcy met it. Sale of mrs.

A More efficient specie of labor is wanted a Well As a larger Supply. It seems that the attention of the British government is now directed to the coloured people of the United states and the suggestion is entertained whether the urgent want of labor in the British West indies might not be supplied in a considerable extent by encouraging the settlement in those islands of emigrants from that class of our population.

L3wili dying for principles prove anything More h an the sincerity of the martyrs night they watched for it standing hand in hand at a window. Whoever saw it first cried out 1 see the Star a and often they cried out both together knowing As Well when it would Rise and where. So they grew tip to be such friends with it that before lying Down in their Beds they always looked out once again to bid it Good night and when they were turning round to sleep they used to say a god bless the Star a but while she was still very Young of very very Young the sister drooped and came to be so weak that she could no longer stand in the window at night and then tie child looked sadly out by himself and when he saw the Star turned round and said to the patient Pale face on the bed j see the Star and then a single would come upon the face anti a Little weak voice used to say a god bless my brother and the Star a and so the time came All too soon when the child looked out alone Ami when there was no lace on the bed and when there was a Little grave among the Graves not there before and when the Star made Long rays Down toward him As he saw it through his tears. Now these rays were so Bright and they seemed to make such a shining Way from Earth to heaven that w Hen the child went to his solitary bed he dreamed about the Star and dreamed that lying where he was he saw a train of people taken up that saw ruling Road by Angels. And the Star opening showed him a great world of Light where Many More such Angels waited to receive them. All these Angels who were waiting turned their beaming eyes upon the people who were carried up to the Star and some came out from the Long rows in which they stood and fell upon the Peoples necks and kissed them tenderly and went away with them Down the avenues of Light and were so Happy in their company that laying in his bed he wept for Joy. But there were Many Angels who did not go with them and among them one he knew. The patient face that once Hail lain upon the bed was glorified and Radiant but his heart found out his sister i among All the Host. His Sisters Angel lingered near the Entrance of the Star and said to the Leader i among those who Lead brought the people hither a is my brother come a and he said a no she was turning hopefully away when the child stretched out his arms anti cried to sister Lam Here take Nie a and i then she turned her beaming eyes upon him it was night and the Star was shining into the room making Long rays Down towards him As he saw it through his tears. I from that hour Forth the child looked out upon the Star As on the Home he was to go to when his time should come and he thought that he did not belong to the Earth alone but to the Star too because of his Sisters Angel gone before. There was a baby born to be a brother to the child and while he was so Little that he never yet had spoken a word he stretched his tiny form out on his bed and died. Again the child dreamed of the opened Star and of the company of Angels and the train of people and the rows it Angels with their beaming eyes All turned upon those people s faces. Said his Sisters Angel to the Leader a is my brother come and he said a not that one but another. As the child beheld his brother s Angel in her arms he cried to sister 1 am Here take me Aud she turned and smiled upon him and the Star was shilling. He grew up to be a Young Man and was Busy at his books when an old it Cruvant came up to him and said a thy Mother is no More. 1 bring her Blessing on her Darling a on again at night he saw the Star and All that former company. Said his sister s Angel to the Leader a is Ray i Rother come and be said a thy Mother a a mighty cry of Joy went for the r a go All the Star became the Mother a reunited to her two children. And he stretched out his arts and cried to Mother sister and brother i am Here take me and they answered him a not yet a and the Star was shining. He grew to be a Man whose hair was turning Grey and he was a i ing in his chair by the fireside heavy with grief and with his face Bede wed with tears when the Star opened once again. Said his sister s Angel to the Leader a is my brother come a and he said a nay but his Maiden daughter and the Man who haul la Een the child saw his daughter newly lost to him a celestial creature among those three and he said a my daughter s head in on Ray sister s bosom and her Arm is round my Mother s neck and at her feet there is the baby of old time and i can Bear the parting from her. God be praised and the Star was shining. Thus the child came to be an old my and his once smooth face was wrinkled Ami his step were alow and feeble at d his Hack was Bent. And one night As he Lay upon his bed. His children standing round he cried As he cried so Long ago a i see the Star a they whispered one to another a he is dying and he said a i am. My Are is falling from me like a garment Ami 1 Nove toward the Star As a child. And of my father now i thank thee that it has so often opened to receive those dear one who await me a and the Star was shining and it shines upon his grave. Public integrity.

Bids lust and Folly Treible on the those who believe that every Man has his Price should read the following incident in the life of Andrew Marvel the pure minded poet and Man. It is Only necessary to premise that the poet was m principle opposed to the ministry and its measures and that the following is but one of the Many instances in which his integrity was tried and thoroughly tested. Lord Domley a courtier Ilia entered his Clumber and proposed to a cure his interest for the ministry.

He sits in an upright Ami determined manner upon an uneasy looking High backed a Luicir. A somewhat Long table intervened Between him and his visitor and one end of it is covered with a White cloth Aud a dish of cold meat is flanked by a loaf of bread and a dark earthenware Jug. On the opposite end is placed a bag of Gold besides which lies the richly embroidered Glove which the Cavalier with whom he is conversing has Flung is a strange contrast in the attitude of the to o then. Lord Darnly lounges w Ith the ease of a courtier and the Grace of a gentleman upon a chair of As stiff and uncomfortable an appearance As that which is occupied after so upright a fashion by Andrew Marvel. A i have answered you. My lord quot said the Patriot already. Methinks there need be no further Parley on the a object it is not my first temptation though i most fervently desire it May he the the no Bician took up his Glove and Drew it on.

You would have larger Means of being a my lord i should certainly have the Means of tempting usefulness to forsake duty the Cavalier Rose but the displeasure that flushed his countenance soon faded before the Serene and holy expression of Milton s Friend. A Ami Are you so determined a said his lordship sorrowfully. A Are you really to determined a thousand English pounds Are there and thrice the sum nay any thing you ask a a my lord my lord a interrupted Marvel indignantly a this perseverance Borders upon insult. Nay my Good lord you do not so intend it but your master does not understand me.

There was indeed one reason for this movement besides the homage which his character commanded. His voice never Strong was then very slender even feeble he was in his seventy eighth year though i enunciation was perfectly distinct and the Universal eagerness not to Loose a syllable that fell from him May have quickened the Effort to be As near him As possible.
