Amongst the many heart rending details
that have been given i.i the foreign journals
of the sad effects of the earthquake at Gua-.
daloupe, we find Ihe following in a letter
published in the Paris Constiuliond. After
describing' many disastrous occurrences, the
writer says:
"Suddenly I beheld" Ihe lifeless body or
a man in the prime of life, and near him a
beautiful young woman. She appeared ab
sorbed in grief; one could almost imagine
her a marble figure weeping over a tomb,
In her cheeks was still dispernible ihe faint
blush of a rose, and a smile was on her lips
and yet she wes dead ! A young girl, to
escape. from certaiu death, rushed out from
her father's, house, but at thr moment when
sho considered herself safe, a house fell
near her.and part of the ruins held her firm
ly to the spot by the lower parts of her ex
tremities, She called loudly for help, the
more so as thejflamcfl appeared advancing
with a giant's space. A, soldier endeavored
to exlricate her, but in vajn. She then
besoughl him to cut off her two legs, in
order to savo her from the fire which had
already reached her. The soldier, yielding
to her entreaties, draw his sword . and pre
pared to cut the legs, when his heart failing
him, he fled.- The young girl was soon
consumed.' '

naturally increase in valde. while at the
same iime it enabled the illegal holder to
harrass and oppress the legitimate one.-
1 his is exactly the case with the local
matters in this county; The iust demand
for the central location of the county build-
mes has been unlawfully withheld ftnm
year' to year,and we have been insulted and
oppressed, while those who have withheld
the act of justice have been enriched.
And they have had special favors eranled
which have been denied to the rest, ami in
prove this let facts be submitted to a candid
puuiic. x aite tue amount paid to Assessors
and Election board for 1842, and see how
they compare with oilier townships. We
find that the Assessor of Mahoning received
thirty six dollars and twelve and a half cents
and any person acquainted" with doing busi-
ncss, would sooner undertake the assess
ment of a village of five hundred houses
than to go into a Tarming district and make
the assessment of one hundred Tarms. Then
ouk again at the fees of the election boards
for 1842. The amount paid to the' board
for Mahoning township is twenty, seven
dollars and tw4-r'
DtrsrrrTCTrrsrsts' of fi
ve persons, they each
receive one dollar and fifty cents each dav
they are ihus engaged, and they are thus
engaged two days, one in March, and one
in October, which would make three dol
lars for each man, and then three fives
make fifteen, according to the rule of mul
tiplication laid down by Thomas Dilworlh.
According to the rule of the
same author, fifteen from twenty seven
leaves twelve and the odd welve cents.
Now I should like to know how any man
in Mahon'ng car. fairly make out twelve
dollars and twelve cents for return fees and
mileage, when the return fees and mileage
for Bloom is only eleven dollars and eighty
cents, which makes the return fees of Ma-
honing thirty two cenls more than that of
Bloom. I have brought' this forward to
show how tho enimies of removal impose
upon the upper part of ihe county and as
this is a subject which I have never seen
broached, I hope that it may be taken up
and fairly investigated, lhai' we may have
the why and wherefore.
Having shown, as. I believe, in a new
light the dishonesty of our ami removal
friends, this should bo a farther inducement
for the friends of removal to rally around
the removal banner, and prepare "to defend
tho cause, and to urge the demands for the
speedy adjustment of our grievances. And
as another inducement to vigorous action,
we should remember how our fellow citi
zens were insulted and robbed by the vul
tures of Danville last spring, during tho
time orcourt.when they had to pay ferriage
in order to pass to and from Danville.whilo
nothing was done by the proper authorities
to remedy ihe fraud. The day of retribu
lion must and will corne.and terrible indeed
has always been the retribution of the yeo
irianry of any age or country. They boar
long and they suffir much, before they
complain, but when their intelligence says
that they can bear rio longer when their
indignation is kindled, it can never be ap
peaaed until their just demands are granted.
While Hook abroad everyday I behold this
indignation growing stropger and stronger
against those by whom we have been thus
oppressed abused, and insulted. Then,
