(be Sandusky Register gives tbe fol
lowing version of the matter, which has
given rise to such unfounded reports. The
>|jwbHshers f of Emerson’s Magazine and Put
’ipun’s Monthly published a card in the N..
'"■yprkpapcrs, a week or so ago, cautioning
ihejpnblic against the Association, on the
alleged ground that the latter had failed
.<<♦o carry out a contract with them on ac-
subscription to their magazines.
. •/-"In reply, Mr. C. L. Derby, Actuary of
,tbe Association, publishes a card, in which
the Asscc'.at'oa “ having be
come fearful of the stability of said Maga-
,*ine, it having failed and changed' hands
.repeatedly, and the Association being res
poteiblo to ite patrons for all subscriptions
,JbrMaga*ines , it was deemed prudent to
.refuse payment for a year .in advance to
Qakshiith & Co., but have offered to
jMgr f cash forall Magazines already furnish
ed, and pay for them monthly in advance
; balance of the year., and give am-
for the performance of the
yggjjc?' 3!hepublishers sued the Actuary,
#*d,this simple little litigation, involving,
webelieve, some $1,200, is the only foun
dation for the startling report in some of
jfew York papers, anil which was also
mpt: broadcast over the .country by tele
f£«ph, that “ the Cosmopolitan Art Asso
ciation, an Ohio crncorn, had failed."
.As far fis our experience is concerned,
* pe. .can safely say that the Association is
fifove reproach, and well worthy of the
confidence and patronage of the public. In
•Iff omr dealings with it, we have never yet
sml apy cause to complain. It don’t be
come Oahsmitb & Co., to talk about swin
dling. They had better perform their,
prmmses first.
■*' Pateioxism.— At the late
Convention, Mrf Cassiday, of
in pressing the claims of hie
friend, Wm. A< Porter, Esq., for the nom
ination for fhip'reme Judge, said that he
(&<*•) teas willing to run on any plat-
Convention might adbpt., Talk,
yonr Fourth-of-July patriotism now.
Why if “ he hod fought, bled and died for
las country, and then walked over the bare
footed ground,” he could not have given
a stronger evidence of the intense patriot-
porvaded his whole being. That
a|Kßt sentence confined avolumeof mean
ing. It meant that he freely offered him
self ,SS a sacrifice, to be put to death in any
Bftftttaer his executioners might decree ;
that he was prompted to do this by the .phr
rest tff motives—rthat of zeal for the pres
ervation of the now in such peril
aid that he scrupled not to undergo any
t<ysitss or submit to any indignities, jpro
vided-hewaß invested with the crown of
nomination for Supreme
Jnd&e. The Convention accepted the sa
«Efffce,andcbnstituted the People of Penn
sylvania his executioners. If Forney’s

had been exposed, promptly raided a

Orleans referring* to the suicides
of Senator Rusk, Anson Jones, and many
others who have destroyed themselves,
comes to the conclusion that if the real
facte could be known, it would be found
that in a vast majority of instances the
cause ia-to be found in cups 1 and adds:
u The extensive adulterations of liquors
which have taken place of late years hot
upon the brain and destroy its proper
functions. Physicians and others know
well that the brain is liable to disease, al
most as much as any other organ, and when
it is so, the individual is—crazy 1 anddoes
not know what he is doing. The brain
of the drunkard, it is well known, will take
fire*emitting a blnish hght and causing a
smell like burning alcohol. We arestrong
ly inclined to think that most suicides by
are referable to this as the primary

• MT* During the prolonged session of
the.XT. S. Senate, Which lasted doling the
whole of Monday night, quite an amiable
little interchange offeeling and sentiment
took place between Messrs. Cameron, of
Pa., and Green, of Mo. Each would have
it that the other was a liar, an&that he
wasn’t afraid of him. On -the nekt morn
ing, however, the matter was straightened
up, by Mr. Green withdrawing the perso
nal remarks he had -mode and “ Simon”
afterwards “ wiggle-waggling.”

[From Onr Own Correspondent*.]
Hoixidatssdbo, March 16, 1858. :
The cr we enjoyed Jast
was conversation. Young
and old embraced the opportunity of tasking in
the pleasant sunshine, and pleasuring in' the
mild, jinvigprating and healthful spring breves,
dost emerging from a cold and unpleasant win
ter, and the disagreeable days of the first of
March, this season of delightful and refreshing
weather, invited the inmates of housesJ who
have been accustomed for some time past to get
as near the stove as possible, to step out and re
gale themselves in the open air. Yesterday and.
to-day have been equally as tempting. Squads
of men may be seen seated here and therein all
imaginable contentment, in busy conversation;
the ladies promenading and making calls, or in
tbeir own significant term, “visitations;” and
the youthful lads engaged in various sports.—
Such, in a great measure, is the situation of
pet sons and things in our town at present
A robbery was committed at the Exchange
Hotel, last week. The amount stolen was not
much, only $4 and some cents. A moil-boy
Who was stopping at the Hotel was immediately
nspeeted of the theft, and was arrested and ta

money wa® found upon his person, and no oth

have been unable to learn.
Achild of Mr. Whittaker, of this place, met
with ah unfortunate accident, last week, inhav

ceived the injury while playing, but no definite

A leakage in the inuun gas pipe wggdiscover

there was a .vacuum somewhere, through which
the gas escaped, blit jno certainty was arrived

The gas lights in Ithe Presbyterian Church
suddenly went oat ptfSabbath evening last, just
as the benediction hud been pronounced, leaving
the congregation tojretire in total darkness.—
Some blame several unknown and mischievous
persona with turning Off the gas. The circum
stances render this qqite probable. If such be
truly the case, it speaks little for the principles
let alone common djbcency of the guilty parties.
However, I do no£’ pretend to say whether it
was the result of accident or mischievousness,--
but hope it was the; former. VERITAS.
Many people do not know what their own busi -
ness is. Sotne suppoae it ia that which their
own narrow and covetous minds suggest for
their own benefit. | Others know that it implies
something more thin; that—the protection of
justice, the maintenance of truth and the pro
motion of virtue, o i in other words, the best in
terests of themselves and fellow men. To the
f.rtner class it is evident “Alpha” belong?.
I hurled back into his teeth his false assertion
that the inhabitants, of- this end of the valley
were’adicted to “foul-mouthed lying” Sow,
he attempts to sneojk put of it, by saying “ I do
not mean all.” Why did he not say that at first?
Why did he not then make some distinction ? We
take a man ns he says, not oa he means. His
first assertion waai“ Especially if he (Stans)
sboald get up intoj ‘ texas,’ they’ll give him
the full benefit of their • foul-mouthed lying.’”
Whoso “ foul mouthed lying ?” Evidently that
of tiie inhabitants. The assertion certainly jus
tifies such a conclusion, it being both plainly
expressed and plainly- implied.
But, “ Alpha,” you speak of some “ defraud
ing neighbors,” you should first “ Cast out the
beam that ia in thine own eye." Before talking
thus it would look better if you would first
“square up” with jour numerous creditors
throughout the couhtiy.
You also speak of sdme who would even knock
their own wires down with a hoe-handle,”, and
of “ some marking ahdep.” Now, “Alpha," you
•ughtn't to speak about several of your relatives
in that manner! It don’t look well. However'
I suppose you wanted to speak the truth for v once,
for you know one of them will a- appropriate
without purchasing, tujd another will engage in
“ fisticuffs” with bis wjfe. However/1 believe
the neighbors have, not been troubled about los
ing sheep, since they drummed you away from
amongst them. If you bad only been as definite
in your former assertion ,as you are now, yon
would not have mimnderilocd. ■
You saj youftrwwilling “to draw the bow
with mo at any time, and in any manner.” Why,
you’re growing desperate. You’ll fight, I sup
pose 7 “ Time and place often make men brave.”
There must be more “ispunk” about you now
than when you flatted |br Mexico, or when your
head was “ shaved” on “Governor’s Island.”—
I won’t chalenge you, however; you’ll only
choose “ shavings” for weapons—distance, a
good run apart. : |
As for the vindictive bilingsgate you have so
freely lavished upon ni o . I have nothing to say,
other, than that such language could emanate
from no othersource than a polluted brain, and
is like its author—sinhll potatoes. I hold it in
the same estimation as I would the brayiogs of
a jackass; -.] ,
Bat to leave this biding subject, I must in
form you, Messrs. Editors, that a wood chopper
by the name of Clark, presiding In this valley,
met with a fatal accident on Friday last While
engaged in chopping, !*© accidentally fell with his
knee upon the bit of the axe. The bit penetra
ted through the joint oif the knee, entirely sev
ering bis Teg from his -body. He died within
toinutes after the accident t. He resided
in Ironsville,' where heleaves a wife and two
children to mourn his in timely end. MAC;
The snow has left os, and the balmy sir
and the warm pajrs of the son think
that Spring is not far distant.
I had the pleasure, last Wednesday evening,
of attending a spelling-school in the district
scbopl'house. I.wpk surprised to see the large
number of pemmß.prcseni. targe and small,
old and young were there, The meeting was
called to order by leacher at aboat 7
o'clock; captains werej selected and sides cho
sen. ‘ Before recess; they used Webster’s
tionory, and after. Cobb’s New Speliing Book.
Considering* the number of persons spelling,
they did admirably.; The number who took part
in the exercises wah not much short of Sfty.
The young folks heiie still continue to hate
parties—“ taffy parses” as they call them. So
ciety is here divided into three classes—No. 1,
2 and 3. No. 1 has a party; then No. 2 gets a
little envious and it has one; then again No. 8,
keeping pace, gives one. Whatever may be the
result of this exclusiveness, I can tell'yob it
causes some spirited scenes. I on! in a dilemma.
Not attending any of the parties, I do not know
to what class they reckon me as belonging.—
Perhaps they place nta a notch belojr either pf
them, who knows? i Well I’ll havo to hearlt
