THE PERRTSBURG JOURNAL BY S. CLARK. "Agriculture, Commerce, Manufactures" 1.50 In Advance. VOL. 2. PERRYSBURG, WOOD COUNTY, OHIO, MONDAY, MARCH 27, 1854. NO. 3. The Age of the Patriarchs. Some have not hesitated seriously to as cribe to our forefather Adam, the height of nine hundred yards, and the age of almost a thousand years. But the accurate and ra tional investigation of modern . philosophy, has converted the supposed bones if giants, found in different parts of the earth, into those of the. elephant and rhinoceros ; and acute theologies have shown that the chro nology of the early ages was not the same as that used at present. Some, particularly llensler, have proved, with the highest proba bility, that the year, till the time of Abra ham, consisted only of three months ; that it was afterwards extended to eight; and that it was not till the time of Joseph, that it was made to consist of twelve. These assertions are, in a certain degree, confirmed by some of the eastern natio...

THE PERRYSBURG JOURNAL! Bayard Taylor. On Monday evening last we had the pleas ure of hearing this gentleman deliver a lec lure before the Young Men's Association at Toledo. His subject was " The Arabs." His lecture was one of the most classical and finished productions that we have ever list ened to,.and was received with marked sen sations of pleasure by a large audience. His uunciation was very clear, deliberate and distinct, and his voice strong, musical and well modulated. His gestures were some what constrained and awkward, showing that he is not yet much accustomed to pub lic speaking. His notes were before him, but the lecture was 60 well conned that he had but little occasion to refer to them. The subject was somewhat amplified and dilated upon, but there was but little said that was new to those who have attentively read his letters in the Tribune from Africa and Asia. The principal incentive with us was curiosity to see and hear the most dar ing, energetic and extensive A...

The church-bell chimed softly to the few vcars earth had claimed the stainless soul of Alice May, as they brought the coffin in the little old church. Ilow beautiful she looked in her white burial robe ; too fair and sweet lor death ; too holy, had there not been a res urrection beyond. Close beside her, stood Jhe friends of her girlhood, gazing on that young face, as if they would fain call her hack to life, and its sweet love. So they laid sweet Alice to sleep in the old church yard, and those who had looked coldly on her, took to their sorrowing hearts a sweet memory of the early dead. There was agony too deep for utterance, vhen the strong, ardent-hearted man, whose guiding star had been the love of that s...

THE PERRYSBURG-JOURNAL. 27 Arrival of the Pacific. War in East—Manifesto of the Czar Nicholas. " We, Nicholas I., &c. " V have already informed our beloved And faithful subjects of the progress of our disagreement with the Ottoman Porte. "Since then, although hostilities have commenced, we have not ceased sincerely to wish, us we still wish, the cessation of bloodshed. We even entertained the hope that reflection and time would convince the Turkish Government of its misconceptions, engendered by treacherous instigators, in which our just demands, founded on treaties, have been represented as attempts at its in dependence, and veiling intentions of ag grandizement. Vain, however, have been our expectations, so far. "The English and French governments have sided with Turkey, and the appearance of the combined fleets at Constantinople served as a further incentive to its obstina cy ; and now both the Western powers, without previously declaring war, have sent their fleets into the ...

'28 THE PERRYSBURG JOURNAL. The nations of Europe have seen nothing like the present vast and energetic prepara tions for war since the days of the first Na poleon. The singular spectacle of the ar mies and fleets of England and France, side by side, and in the closest amity, preparing to meet the gigantic power of Russia, adds interest to the scene. A late arrival brings the following among other items of interest : There were rumors that the British fleet of forty sail, under Vice Admiral Sir Charles Napier, on its assembling at Spithead, would be joined by the French fleet of ten sail of the line, luteen frigates (ot which nve are steamers,) and fifteen corvettes, (all steam ers ;) and that the allied fleets, thus number ing eighty sail of the most magnificent ships in the world, would be reviewed prior to their departure for the Baltic by the Queen and Prince Albert ; and that the Emperor Napoleon would cross from Cherbourg in his imperial steam yacht Reine Hortense, to be prese...

30 What are " Consols?" Many inquiries having been made relative to consols, we take from the Banker's Magazine the follow ing account of what consols are : They are a three per cent. English stock, which' had its origin in an act of the British parliament, consolidating (hence the name) several separate government stocks, called in the act " consolidated annuities," and com monly quoted, for brevity, as " consols.'' When the consolidation took place, the principal of the several funds thus merged amounted to 9,137.821, but by the funding of additional and subsequent loans and parts of loans into this stock, it amounted on the 5th of January, 1 836, to 35G,76S,228. Since that period only one loan has been raised that for compensation to the West India planters in the emancipation of slaves, 20, 000,000, and a 'few millions have been paid off. The total in January, ISIS, was 317, 824,981 English debt, and 6.124,874 Irish debt, out of a total debt of 772.401, Sol. This stock, from its...
