_,,:greet amenity of meeting even the minimum e 3
tbniste of the cost of the rail road would, in addition to
thiseobvious ideas, prove &decided busier to an tin
. &ilia* of so formidable a character. We have,
theleforre, time to look about us in order to ascertain
whet cenbe done to secure the transportation and tra
vel, which, unless we make use of some exertion, and
tub with e. becoming sense of what suits our interests,
will pass through our state almost without leasing a
trace of its existence.
Our great object i 3 to intercept this vast trade and
, travel in its transit, and at some proper point on the
.','noel road. We must tap that road and draw off its
:Q ( esjyantages to our own city, instead ofpermitting them
-follow on to Wheeling, and we must do it at some
point that will render us certain as to our object, and be
sufficiently economical to invite business in the Opera
tion with our united means. To such a project I pro
pose to call the attention of the public, and merely ask
nottadid perusal of my essays on the subject.
' . 4 Messrs. Editors:—ln your paper of yesterday, I

to divert the attention of the convention that is to meet
to-morrow, from my desire to be nominated COUNTY
TILLASUILER, I know n_et, lAA being probably ad well
acquainted iivith my-OWn q ualifications as any of my

'... thought pro_M some time ago to define my position, by
4- '4lfering rkSielf for the office of Coanty Treasurer, for
, t ...H - A ' I consider myself properly qualified; but for the

A em not a public speaker, nor am I versed in the po
litical eta noes rering and trkkery necessary' to make
a mentbetoopular either at the seat of government or
at hermit e., as the business is now c onducted). I
am therefore not a candidate for the Legislature.—
Should the Convention see proper to nominate me to
the office of County Treasurer, they shall have my
thanks, and (if elected,) my best services.

FROM Cutsw.—By the arrival of the ship Thomas

whenceahe sailed on the 18th of April,we have received
the following intelligence:
The French frigate Erigooe and the 'United States

A'. letter in the Register gives an account of some
disorders at Canton on the 12th of April, but they pro
dueeck no very serious results. The disturbance arose
between *VU'S "fast boat" men and the keeper& of a ga
minghowe. The Chinese soldiers interfered, to the
number of about two hundred; but taking part with the
gaming house people, they were attacked by the crews
of all the "(list boats." One oldie boatmen was killed
and another fatally wounded.
The people at Whampon had sent up a deputation to
remonstrate against the English being allowed to build
factories there. The English have no such intention.
