Already do we sec evidences of the commence
ment of Spring Business in Columbia. 'rite very
visages of our business men speak the fact, that
they are tired of this monotony and dullness of the
winter, and hail with joy the day when their
duties shall call their energies into mental and
physical activity. All things seem to be ready for
a fair start. The State has repaired the works over
which site has control—the basin has undergone
a thorough cleansing, locks have been repaired, I
wharfs built, &c., for the accommodation and con
venienee of those who patronize' her improve
ments, while our forwarding and transportation
men have left nothing undone, that world in any
way enable them to be prepared to enter fully and
heartily into business. We observe that their
boats and cars have all undergone repair, and they
deck the bosom of the canal, or the track of the
railway, in all the colors of the rainbow. The boat
yards of Messrs. Simpson and Bowers, have been a
scene of activity during the whole winter, mid we
understand each of these gentlemen have now
several of the largest class boats almost ready to
But the evidences of business is not confined
exclusively to the above branches. A walk along
Front Street will convince the most unobservant,
that the other branches of trade are alive to their
interests. Several new houses have already opened
their doors, and exposed for sale their different ar.
ticles of merchandise. Many removals are to take
place, and those who arc to change places are most
anxiously awaiting the Ist of April, when they, too,
will be able, with a replenished stock, to enter their
new locations and names, as candidates for a share
of public patronage. The established houses
throughout the town,are waiting and ready for their
time, and in fact it seems to as that the coming
season is to be oneof unusual briskness in Columbia .
We hear ofmany new buildings in course of erec
tion, and many more in contemplation. Several
new furnaces have aprung up within the last few
months in the immediate vicinity of the town. ‘Vitli
these improvements and business prospects of the I
town, in connection with our many other facilities,
such as railroads, canals, telegraphs, &c., to assist
us in all enterprises, we cannot see what is to pre.
vent any, with proper management and exertion,
from reaping that reward due to perseverance and
and energy.
Tile SENATE.—This association, of whose pro.
=dings we have kept our readers advised, ad•
journed in a very singular and unexpected manner,
on Tuesday evening last, stopping one of its mem
bers in the midst of his speech, by a resolution for
adjournment until November next. We were our.
ry, on entering the hall, to find that the resolution
bad carried, and the body actually dissolved. We

Tuesday evening, joined them, by invitation, after
the adjournment, to enjoy, as we thought, the "flow
of soul." But our flow of soul was a little disturbed
by hearing of the conduct of several of the mein.
bers in relation to ourselves. Previous to adjourn
ment, a member offered a resolution to the effect
that a vote of thanks be given by that body to the
editors of the Spy, for their flattering notices, from
time to time, of the Senate, &c. As a matter of
course, the gentleman offering this resolution knew
that we neither expected nor courted such an
honor at their hands; but governed by the same
spirit which prompted a majority of the tnembers,
viz: a joka—to vole for a. resolution ordering the
printing of 500 copies uf a certain member's speech,
Ire presented the one in question, but was not for
tunate enough to have it carried through. This
joke met with a roost strenuous opposition from
several of the members, which opposition roust
have had its foundation in something other than
the contents of the resolution itself: They, it ap.
pears, did not consider themselves flattered by our
notices; perhaps they felt they did not merit them;
at all events the shoe pinched somewhere, and they
were disposed to, and did, convert this joke, by
their zealous opposition, into a personal thrust at
ourselves. We would be happy to relieve the gen.
flatten of' any unfavorable impression they may
have towards us, arising from our reports of the
proceedings of the Senate, by a fair face to face

Gazette, as fully embodying our views on the sub•

of the Gazette in his endeavors to secure simply
`•sheer justice" to country editors, and the interest
of their journals, by urging upon them the necessity
of raising their voices, and exerting their influence,
against this uniform law for newspaper postage,
the direct operation of which would be a death
blow to their own circulation:
NEWSPAPER POSTAI:E.—A letter has been exhibi.
ted to us from an authuritive source in which it is
stated that the " publishers of newspapers in the
Atlantic cities have on foot a project for a uniform
law regulating the postage on newspapers, by means
of which they can send their sheets of trash thou
s/nds of miles at u cost nu greater than the readers
of country papers pay un those carried ten miles
or less."
We had before seen intimations that the project
referred to was contemplated. It is designed to
injure country papers, and this it will most certain.
ly do if successful. Immediate preventive mea
sures should be adopted. We would suggest to
country publishers the propriety of at once taking
steps to ward off the blow thus aimed at their in
terests. They should endeavor to have the postage
laws so arranged as to discriminate in their favor,
instead of against them. This they are entitled to,
as might be shown by a variety of arguments;
and this, by a united voice, clearly and emphatical
ly expressed, they can secure. Congress will heed
and accede to their honestly entertained and strong.
ly urged wishes. Let them be true to themselves.
Let them rmual, promptly amid decidedly upon the
subject, through their papers and through petitions,

limits of their respective Congressional Districts,
and charge the mammoth city weeklies, filled with
old matter, according to weight and distance of

something like the walking or a thousand miles in

know how a periodical will wear down one's ex

l)elta has published, in a supplementary sheet, the
correspondence, some of which has been previously
published, of Generals Scott and Worth, relative to
the late difficulties in the army, subsequent to the
publication of the army orders, censuring severely
certain letters written to the United States. It is
briefly as follows :
Gen. Worth addre.sed a letter to Gen. Scott,
stating that he learned with astonishment that it
was the opinion of the army that the imputation
of scandalous conduct, mentioned in a general or.
der, relbrred to him, and asking if such was the
intention of the Conunander•in•chief.
Gen. Scott replied that the order clearly express.
ed that he meant to apply the imputation to the au.
dim of the letter signed "Leonidas."
Gen. Worth rejoined, and said that he did not
consider the answer satisfactory. Gcn. Scott re.
plied that he could nut be more explicit. Ile had
nothing to do with the suspicions ofothers,and, if
he had valid information of the authorship, he
would prosecute the parties before a court martial.
Gcn. Worth replied that lie supposed the Com
mander regarded him as not deserving a satisfac
tory answer. and, feeling himself aggrieved, lie
should appeal to the President. lie concluded by
accusing Scott of acting in u manlier unbecoming
an officer and n gentleman.
Gen. Scott then ordered Worth under arrest, for

useful, and highly entertaining sheet, is before us,
and it is with no small degree of pleasure that we

The "Fair "—of which we spoke in a former
epistle—has been in successful operation during the
two past weeks. The sale was so arranged in or
der to avail them of the " Court Term," a very ju
dicious course to pursuc„by the—vTay - -r-as strap
.:ers,_and., -, Illoiii - tiorn the country particularly, al
ways bleed more freely, and submit themselves to
be plucked with a better grace than native citi.
runs. From an elevated position we could over
look the whole transaction; secure alike from harm's
reach,and the ladies' importunities. But although
secure ourself: we could not refrain from commis
erating the fate of each unlucky wight, that "Hark
cn'd to the Syren's song." Manifold were the trials
unto which unmarried gentlemen on the wrong
aide of the " Rubicon," wore subjected. Poor fel
lows ! They have no sweet little wives, and chub
by faced pratting "responsibilities," to enliven their
desolate firesides,and form the happy family circle,
so they must needs seek the pleasure of refined and
gentle society elsewhere. When such gentlemen
are reckless enough to venture within the precincts
of a " Fair," they should esteem themselves fortu
nate if they escape with life and liberty, and should
not indulge in vain regrets, for what flick own fol
lies have occasioned—as did an individual, who,
when he came to discover the extent of his expendi
ture—was almost petrified with astonishment and
regret, and invoked the bitterest anathemas upon
such "Gull Traps." True, it is, and we say it
"more in sorrow than in anger," that the ladies
arc at times most unreasonable in their demands,
and in other respects, manifest an entire absence
of conscience, especially when they hook an " old
Bachelor," and as long as the finances ensure, so
long will the dear creatures continue to wreath and
entwine their sweetest smiles and bright glances,
with gentle words, until the victim has immolated
his heart as well as his last penny at the shrine of
Beauty. This we do enjoy, greatly, for it serves
them right. What business have they to be single?
Would that you were with us now, to mark a
group" of clods," who it is very evident, never had
a "peep at the Elephant," and " is now in town
with a pocket full of rucks," on a regular swell,
arrayed in all their Sunday finery, and have even
taken a clean pocket-handkerchief on this impor
tant occasion. Their visit will be an impressive
one, for they will regret it 'till the end of life. The
girls have designs upon them already, and they are
bound to be fleeced. But the lesson will prove sal
utary, and the recital of which, will serve to enter
tain their sweethearts when they go a "sparking,"
who will most assuredly question their veracity,
and find it almost impmsihk to believe, that they
expended such a profusion of money, and in return,
only obtained so comparatively trifling an cquivo.
lent, as " value received."
One of the above mentioned, a youth somewhat
past the years of discretion, whose head was cov•
ered with long, straight, cerretty colored hair, with
broad shoulders, hands that were large enough to fell
an ox,and :rollers that must have been formed under
geometrical calculations, combining, as they did,
a vast degree of "circumbindibus," as Neale bath
it, in every respect admirably adapted for heading
sheep in a narrow lune, but, nevertheless, could
nut prevent the "juveniles" from creeping through,
which they did more for pastime, than because no
other mode of egress presented itsell. This famil
iarity was not to be borne by any man of spirit, as
you may suppose, sothe youth became highly in
censed and indignant at the base use to which
his legs were subjected—and to prevent repetition,
sought refuge close beside one of the tables. But
he soon discovered, to his sorrow, that he had fled
from a "bear, only to meet a lion." For the fair
occupants were down on him Ilke a shower-bath,
assailing him on all sides, something alter this
fashion: NVlty, Mr. —, we are indeed delight
ed to see you—now do buy this beautiful cap, and
this fancy box for your wile—we know she will be
delighted, and this would be such a sweet present,"
&c. "lie, he, he! I paint got nary wife, moan,"
replied the sapient and witty Mr. —. "Oh,
well," rejoined the ladies, "You surely have a
Lady-Love—do purchase this bead-bag, it is so very
pretty, and only cost five dollars."—" Lady-Love,"
says Clod sorely puzzled, "what's them ?" " Why
I a sweetheart, cevtainly," replied the ladies. "We
know you have one, end this beautiful reticule as a
present, will make her love you more than ever—
you know you have a sweetheart." "No I 'taint
none pother," persisted the unfortunate, but not
withstanding his repeated asservations to the con
trary, that ho had neither wife nor sweetheart,
they succeeded in casing him of all the available
funds in his possession, Lad when be rejoined his
companions, we overheard him whisper to them,
that "them gals was oilfired putty gals, but he be
blatn'd to hlamenation, ifthcy ever ketch him agin;"
and after laying their heads together, they conclud
ed to leave forthwith for home, where we trust they
arrived in safety, after their perils, wiser men, at
least, if not better.
The Blues' Band, of Baltimore, gave several con
i certs last week to full houses. This is a treat vac
seldom have the pleasure of enjoying, and this
" Caps Musical" is second best to none. That
sweet voiced and talented vocalist, Mrs. Beard, of
Baltimore, accompanied them, and won golden
opinions, and enthusiastic applause from a delight
ed audience. Apropos of music. We are nightly al.
most stunned by horns,trumpets, tamborines, and all
the incidentals connected with serenaders; our city
seems to have grown quite musical of late. But
we would moat willingly and cheerfully dispense
with their friendly endeavors, or at least try and
submit to it, provided wconly knew what they were
"trying to play," and then the singing, oh, dear !
We were alarmed from a quiet sleep, " the other
night," by screams and yells most terrific, and we
were on the point of flying, as we thought, to the
aid of some distressed neighbor, when a gentle ca
dence in the sound, arrested our haste, and we dis
covered that somttody was trying to sing (!) Now,
this was the worst of all bad singing, no mistake,
a complete 4. Thomas cat c.tterwauling." There
can certainly be no regular system for such demon
strations, but if you musicians have any such terms
as a 4. damnbadda" voice, set down in musical
phrase, this must have been one of that kind,
most emphatically, and the strongest kind of one at
that. We raised the window, and expressed our
high appreciation of the intended kind favor, desir

From the Batavia Times
There is a certain individual in this State who
rejoices in the name of the " 'Western Railroad
Jockey," or more commonly, the "Great Western,"
a man who is half horse and whole Yankee. He
was the keenest chap in trading nags that was ever
raised in New England, and "canny Yorkshire"
could not produce his match at " taking in the
flats." The fame of thit excellent man at length
reached the ears of another adept in the same pro
fession, living somewhere up on the Vermont line,
equally skilled in horse-flesh and the tricks of trade,
but not (" curses on partial fortune !") equally re
nowned. When the Northern Nimrod—for he was
quite a sporting character, heard of his rival's rep
uta lion, and particularly of his boast that he could
'pick up any man living,' his pride was seriously
hurt, and hearing that the 'Great Western' was to
he at a particular spot, on a particular day, for the
purpose of trading horses, he determined to be
there with a nag of his to measure strength with
the redoubtable jockey.
Accordingly, in anticipation of the 'meet' be be.
gnn training and feeding a worthless horse of his
that rejoiced in the 'heaves some—ifnot more,' and
by dint of careful grooming and a generous stable
diet, succeeded in making the animal look as 'fine
as a lilly bird on a plum tree,' as the 'Corinthian'
would say. So he determined to take the 'critter'
down by easy stages to the place or rendersous.—
When near the village our friend dismounted, went
into the bushes, and there occupied some time in
changing his toilet. Re went into the 'cover' look

it, the most verdant looking juvenile that ever ate

combed smooth behind his cars; he had donned a
genuine white wool bell top; the groat pewter-dol
lar buttons on his coat-waist were near up to his
shoulder blades, and his home-spun blue trousers
were tucked in the tubes of a pair of astounding
cow-hide boots.

The 'Great Western' wanted to see him, and the
pair adjourned to the woodshed. The `Great West
ern' was much pleased with the appearance of the
horse, and after satisfactory examination, asked
'Green Un' what he'd take for him.
"lie ain't for sale, mister," answered Greeny.—
"the old man acts nil creation by him. Raised
him himself. The critter was fouled eight years
next grass."
" But supposing I was to give you a 'dreadful

to the largest of the pile, "and if he can draw it
round the woodpile, I'll stand my offer."
The Green I.lii accepted the challenge, and the

knew very well that if the 'critter' was driven
round the pile with a steady pull, thetheaves' would
soon show themselves, and nothing but exquisite

Dfrern FROM CIILOROFORM. — An alarming fact
in the history ofChlorofbrni has occurred in Cincin
nnati which will result in far greater caution in the
use of this powerful ag,;:nt than hop up this time
been the case. We give below the fall particulars,
as fur as they have reached us, as ull the details of
the case should be known :
Mrs. Simonds, the deceased, had consulted some
four or five physicians, and been advised by them
all to use chloroform in having her teeth drawn.—
She accordingly went with a female friend to her
Twentyfivc drops were put into the inhaler, ad
ministered, and took immediate effect. Dr. Sexton
commenced removing the teeth, which were mere
stumps, and nut difficult of extraction. As he at
tempted to draw the fourth one, she put up her
hand and seized his arm. He requested her to put
her hand down, saying that the remaining ones
would hurt but little, and she removed her hand.—
He judged that she had partially passed from the in
fluence of the Chloroform, and knew what was go
ing on. He applied the instrument again and drew
the tooth. Just as it came out, she drew back her
head, made a convulsive movement with her hands,
slid forward on the scat of the chair, and expired.
The time from her first inhaling the chloroform to
this sad multi, did not, the dentist says, exceed a
minute and a half.
" Her feet were immediately bathed, and frie.
I lions applied, and Dr. Baker called in. Artificial
inflation of the lungs was used, and by the assist.
ante of Prof. Locke, who was immediately called
in by Dr. Baker, electricity was applied. A short
time after Drs. Massey and Lawrence were called
in. All efforts to resuscitate her were in vain.--
Her husband arrived while these efforts were being
made, her family physician, Dr. Mulford, was also
present during part of the time.
"A post modem examination is intended, but is
os yet deferred in a taint hope that life may not be
entirely gone. Fourteen or fifteen hours after the
time of her (supposed) death, olio was yet warm;
but whether that resulted from remaining life,or
from the fact that in hope of a resuscitation she
had been kept in a warm bed in a warm room, is
not determined."
Subsequently, being well satisfied that the vital
spark was extinct, a pest mecum examination was
made. l'he system of the deceased was frond in a
healthy state, and showed no indications of any die,
case that could have caused her death.
The Cincinnati Inquirer says, in speaking or this
committee, we understand, arc satisfied
that her death was causc;d by the administration of
chloroform. It was supposed that it was given in
too concentrated a f4rm, and that insensibility was
thus caused too rapidly. It. was given by an in
haler,(air tight) a sponge saturated with chloroform
being first deposited within it. We are told that
the usual, and safest way, for its administration, is
by. dropping it uponaltantilterchief,and then per.
