The Canal Enlargement.
We are informed by good anthority * that a
concerted attempt is to be made at, the next
session of the Legislature to secure the aid of
the State towards the desired enlargement
and extension of the canal. A. large amount
of bonds Whkit the State obtained from the
Pennsylvania li. It. Co., as payment for the
public works are now lying idle in the
Treasury, anti it is proposed that a suffitient
number of these shall be exchanged for bonds
of the Canal Company to enable it to make
the necessary enliirgeitunt. The State could
in no sense be a loser by this transaction, as
it would simply be giving one kind of secur
ity lbr another equally good, it being one of
the:intended stipulations in the canal bonds
that times- shall be a first mortgage on all the
property of the company. The canal. \then
thus enlarged, would be worth douple the
=omit of bonds needed, and the Suite ln•
lending them to the aid c r the company
Puultl •as;ure the completion of one of the
greatest improvements of the age, and help
to build up poi increase of population and
wealth in the Western counties that in ten
years time would more than double its reve
nues froth that source.
The eiremnstances attending the concep
tion of the enlargement project wJre of such
a (diameter as to gcvc it a Susideion4 appear
ance in the eyes Of many persons, and have
restrained some of our most enterprising and
influential citizens from giving it that hearty
co-operation they would otherwise have
done. It teas untbrumate that it should have
been broached on the eve of an intensely
exciting political con'est, and still . inure in
the fact that Its leading public- advocate
should Ica ve - dkussed it in his speech in the
Senate in a avower that enabled Ins person
al enemies to turn it to their advantage and
Make ira butt daring. the campaig - n. But
let the idea liave originated w here it may, it
is one that should commend itself to the
serious at tention of our citizens and of the
wind,. people of Western Pennsylvania. A -
movement. that promises so much good to
the entire community ought not to he twg
lertca because of outside motives that in no
way convert the project itself. We prefer
that- thing.) should hecn °them i.e, but mils
that they have passed, we do not intend that
personal or political hostilities shall divert
us from lending what slight nil we can to
the accomplishment of a measure . fraught
with more benefit to our citizens thiin all the
other public enterprises devised in this rt
gion. High
_scientific authority assures us
that the canal enlar).Tethent is entirely feasi
ble, and no person who sits down and calm
ly reflects over the subject can doubt that if
suede is the case its accomplishment ought to
be the subject of the !most energetic- efforts
on the part of our citizens. We Call upon
all who are in anyway, directly or indirectly,
interested in the prosperity of Erie-and the
Western tier of counties to give it at once
their earnest and active influence. It must
not be expected that the measure can:be se
cured without hard labor and determined,
harmonious action. The West has claims
upon the State that cannot justly be delayed,
and we feel convinced that if the press and
people, with one voice, and in the appropri
ate method, should make known our wishes
to the Legislature, it could not fail to grant
•the legislation sought.

THE Philadelphia Ledger, a piper which
displays more care in making up its news-it&
par;ment than any 'other in the country, A
few days :Igo published the following Curious
'paragraph. It seems hardly possible that
Mis , Dickinson, with :dl her spit efulpess and
bravado, could he guilty of such indelicate
and discreditable conduct, and we shall be
glad to learn that the story is incorrect. If
she was guilty of the course charged upon
her, the plan of rebuke adopted by Captain
Matthews must be generally acknowledged
to have been the Most Appropriate that he
could have devised.:
" A 130- , ton paper relates that Miss Anna
Dickinson, while on board the school-ship in
Boston Harbor, on Sunday, after writing her
own name in the visitors' autograph book,
turned to ; the signature of President John
son and deliberately erased it. Captain Mat
thew,., on returning on board and learning
the tact, added opposite to the erased John
son's name, that it had been done In• Anna
Since the above was in type. we tind an
extract going the rounds of the press, from
.716 s D.'s harangue in Boston, in which she
attempts to explain her conduct as follows :
"That going down to the school-ship and
having a pleasant morning there, a little
while before I left it, the teacher of the ship
handed me an autograph book exactly like
thousands of others in which I have written,
and supposing it to he a private autograph
book belonging to him, I wrote my name
therein. Turning over the pages, I came to
one soiled by the name of 'Andrew Johnson,
and holding my dry pen in the air, made a
little playful flourish over it, when he (whom I
supposed to be the owner of the book) said
to me: 'lf you will mark your pen across
that with ink, it will - add greatly to the val
ue of the Book and I doing what I suppOsed
would gratify the man, supposed to be the
owner or book, did to Andrew .Johnson's
name whiif the w hole loyal nation would
gladly de with his infamous record and him
-self—blot it out. [Applause.] So much for
that. I wish the man was as easily ended as
his name was in that disc ; and I believe,
nay. I know, that the great tnas,s of the loyal
people in, the country say amen to any such
We canuot perceive that Miss Dickinson
helps her case by this extraordinary story.
The plea that she believed the autograph
book was private property is no excuse fur
her unladylike demeanor. The act was one
of those indications of petty malice of which
Miss Dickinspn's_ clover has furnished so
many examples, and will,. bring her into
more discreditable reputiftbm than ever.
And :is for the teacher whom she seeks .to
s.tddle wiikd part of the odium, the sooner
the service is rid of such creatures the better.
" Piti's•rott Sult..”—Mr. r lt. L. Perkins,
or the Manchester paper mill, communicates
to the Dispatch a long account of the myste
rious light which has been seen upon the
L o,le in that vicinity at various periods. lie
says it makes its "appearance generally, if
not ahvays, in the fall of the year, and usu
ally in the month of November, and almost
always during or immediately after a heavy
blow from the southwest. The most brilliant
exhibition of the light was during The night
of the 24th or 25th of November, 1852.'; The
light bears a resembhince to a burning vessel,
and has frequently been taken for-such by
persons who are not acquainted with the phe
nomena. It appears to be some 200 feet in
length, and as high as the upper cabin of a
steamer, and irradiates the sky and water for
some distance. Flames seem to leap up and
sway front side to side, the same as in a fierce
'conflagration. The light was seen by
mariners as long as 50 years ago, and the
! matter has often been one of speculation, but
no perstln has heretofore given a plausible
theory to explain it:_ Mr. Perkins Presumes
that the "shifting of the sands cansed by the
continued and heavy winds' of the autumn,
has opened some' crevices or seats .in the
, rock of the Lake bottom, thrOgh which a
gas escapes, and that this gas, owing to some
peculiar condition of the atmosphere with
which it comes in contact, becomes lumin
i ous, or, perhaps, ignited and burning with a
positive • flame. That there are what are
called 'gas springs' in the water all along this
portion of the lake shore- is a well known
fact, and that - a highly inflammable gas in
large quantities exists at a comparatively shal
-1 low depth on the shore, has been sufficiently
proved by 'the boring of wells at different
'points, as ut Eric, Walnut Creek and Lock
1 Daven, and by the natural springs at West
field and Fredonia." We feel a natural ell

THE Meadville Democrat takes us to task
for speaking of ex-Congressman Culver as

that as " the great bulk - of his pecuniary in

as that -was "the place of hi: residence,"
" whatever credit, or vice versa, attaches to

The hardest thing for public speakers to over

have rid themselves of the fetters which set
upon them so disagreeably,
Ortt frlend Benson, editor of the German
Free Press, is not Inclined to permit himself
* to be made a cats-paw in the hands of the
Radical politicians, In the last issue of his
paper be discusses at length the organization,
object and probable results of the two Grant
Clubs in this city, and thus pointedly de
clines the position to which one Of them
chose to elect hhq :
"The editor of this paper feels it devolving
upon himself - to resign the honorable place
of a Reconling Secretary, for the following
reason Unconditional Surrender Grant,
United States Grant, and us the balance of
the sycophantical terms may be called, has,
indeed, rendarad considerable service to the
country as a military man, and has thereby
merited the respect and admiration of poesy

but his duty. According to our opinion, no
one but a thorough statesman hasi any claim
to the Presidential chair."
WE have good authorityfor the statement
that the common idef4revailing among our

keep off the track as 'a candidate for - Con

lieFes himself able to secure a renomination,
and is actually scheming to accomplish that
mutt. In this tolmty he will have the co

fluential gentlemen, and we understand that
some lime .since one , of these premised him
the endorsement of the next Radical Con

I . the arena will be apt to disconcert the plans
of our local politician's, and we shall not be

sance—in which, strange as it may appear, a
great many . eit izeits of matilly sound. judge
ment agree with it. In one of its issues of
last week, it gave way to its feelings in the
following ghastly manner :
'We hope soon to announce that 'Weston
the pedestrian,' has leither got through to
Chibago or has brokeh down hopelessly- in
the attempt. He has already occupied so
large a share otpublie, and particularly tele
graphic attention, that we shall be pleased
some morning to take up any paper withoin
'Weston the pedestrian', first striking our
eyes in its columns. We say we wish him
speedy success—that he may do it -or him
self be done—we don't care which. Let him
gallantly win the, or else promptly
drop 1w the wayside. ' It is worse than 'an
other Fenian raid on Canada.' The walking

least, that nobody will tempt him, on t wa

Tin: editor of the North East Herald says
he "had hardly time to get out to see" the
Democratic jubilee at that place,. and, we
presume, thin extraordinary rush'of businmi
will account for the meagreness of the re
port which the Herald publishes, He seems,
liiiwever, to' have given the MN' . enough
thought to "believe". certain things occurred,
and "probably'' Some others of a mysterious
nature. We sincerely hope that when our
friends at North East attempt another dem
onstration they will take pains to arrange it
so,that the Herald editor may find "time to
get out and see," or, what would be better
still, hold it in some location where' it will
come before his august-presence in so direct
a way as to-save him the trouble of walking
a few yards to afford him the-honor of seeing.
It may be that hy such means they can in

ON - Wednesday of last week, as the pro :
peller Equator was, oa her way front Buffalo
to Cleveland, and when about ,fifteen
from Fort Stanley, and some four miles from
shore, a large heel: Was gliseovered swimming
in the lake. The Captain lowered a - boat
and sent a crew in. pursuit. After dodging'
around for about an hour, his antlered high
ness was captured and taken on board the
propeller, alive. But he was not contented
in his new and unfamiliar quarters, and made
it so lively for those on board that they were

A WASiIINOTON correspondent of the
Ronester (N. Y.) Express says that Judge
Williams or Senator'Lowry, of the Erie and
Crawford District, will probably be the
choice of the Pennsylvania Legislature, as
the successor •of Buckalew, in the U. S. Sen
• Would it not be well for our Radical-co
temporaries to wait a little while before fix
ing up their slate for the succession to Mr.
Beckalew ? Judging by present indications,
the Democracy may have something to say
on that subject.
FIEtEIA DouotAss, the noted-colored ora
