When the world was created, and all crea tures assembled to have their lifetime ap pointed, the ass first advanced and asked how long he would have to live ? " Thirty years," replied nature ; " will they be agreeable to thee ?" " Alas !'' answered the ass, " it is a long while. Remember what a wearisome exis tence will be mine from morning until night I Khali have to bear heavy burdens, dragging corn tacks to the mill, that others may eat bread, while I shall have no encour agement, nor be refreshed by anything but blows and kicks.

222 THE PERRYSBURG JOURNAL. How India-Rcrber Shoes ark Made. Contrary to the general impression, India rubber, in the process of manufacturing, is not melted, but is passed through heated iron rollers, the heaviest of which weigh twenty tons, and thus worked or kneaded, as dough is at a bakery. Tin; rubber is near ly all procurred from the rnouth of the Am azon, in Brazil, to which point it is sent from the interior. Its form, upon arrival, is that of a jug or pouch, as the natives use clay moulds of that shape, which they re peatedly dip into the liquid caoutchouc, until a coating of the desired thickness ac cumulates, when the clay is broken, and emptied out. The rubber, 'after being wash ed, chopped fine, and rolled to a putty-like consistency, is mixed wi th a compound of metalic substances, principally white-lead ' and sulphur, to give it body or firmness. Those sheets designed for "the soles of the shoes, are passed under rollers having a dia- j mond figured surface. From thes...

PERRYSBURG JOURNAL. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1854. 3The election on Tuesday last passed off pleasantly and with general good feeling in Perrysburg. Much interest was felt and manifested in the result, though no excite ment prevailed. The entire Republican tick et prevailed by handsome majorities, as will be seen by the official abstract of votes pub lished m this paper. The expression of the people of Wood county is firm and decided on the encroachments of slavery. The vic tory of the people over the adherents of the proslavery administration is as gratifying as it is decisive and emphatic. It is an ex hibition of " popular sovereignty" worthy to be respected and held in remembrance. JSThe Wood County Fair was held at Portageville on Wednesday and Thursday last. We were unable to attend, and have received no report of the exhibition as yet. We learn from those who attended, that the exhibition of live stock was large and fine. The weather on Thursday was rainy and un pleasant. We inten...

Jefferson Laplet, Esq., one of the Na tional officers of the American Order or Se cret Society of Know Nothings, called upon us, yesterday, on special business. He says that the members of the Order throughout the.

While the members were aware, that strict secresy, in relation to everything connected with the Order is desirable, yet, as the objects of the Association are purely patriotic, it was the unanimous opinion of the members of the National Camp that no harm could result from a voluntary publication of the forms and ceremonies of the...

234 THE PERRYSBURG JOURNAL. PERRYSBURG JOURNAL. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1854. fifrTha late terrible loss of life by the ocean steamer Arctic has cast a gloom over the eastern cities never before equalled by a like calamity. The great number of passen gers lost, the prominent position in society which many of them occupied, and the sup posed safety and power of the Arctic, have together attracted and shocked the public sensibilities of the country to an unusual extent. There seems no doubt that ample .prepara tion, in the way of life boats, had been made to ensure the safety of nearly all the persons on board; but at an early stage of the dis aster the crew of the Arctic took possession of most of these boats and made off with them, leaving the passengers, male and fe male, to perish in the sea, deprived of the very means provided for their safety by the guardians to whom they had entrusted their lives. As an eastern paper justly says, the only relief seen in this dark picture of the b...
