So a Court of Law has decided, and the is presumed to know, or rather to establish everything that is in doubt. The case in which this decision occurred, w as tried at Dayton, Ohio, last w etk, is reported in our interesting the Gatetie of that place. It apjiears that Mr. Giiiis sued the members of the "Lig Ontral Committee of Montgomery county, on account of debts incurred during the campaign of 1832. The plaint Iff swore to his account and established liability of defendants by introducing a circular cf the Whig Committee with their names to it. All defendants allowed judgment to go by default, except Smith Davidson, who for the ''fun of the thing' demurred to the complaint, that the Whig forty teat dead, and that the committee was D'jt the administrator of ita .TecU. The demurrer further alleged that: "The an "" become before the said Whig rr,y filing of aaid petition to all intents and purposes that a short time deceased and entirely previous to the fill election in the year of our Lord 1SC4 it "went under"' and since then has had no tangible existence that there has been no administrator appointed to settle the affairs of aid deceased ptirty; but in the event of the appointment of said administrator the defendant will foci it his duty to advise the payment of said bill if duly presented, provided, always, that the property and elrcis of said deceased party, sisting chiefly of old luaiber for platforms) can be deposed of at a fairprice. The defendant further elates that he is informed upon reliable authority that the 6aid party died insolvent." The case t as argued upon the demurrer by Mr. Davidson for himself, and Mr. Tilton for tne plaintifT, who asserted t iat if the Whig party had gone under it hadn't beat the Democratic party at the operation, but he believed it would arise like the feenicki." from its ashes, and if it did, the "O'd Line" party would arise from its ashes to meet it. The court, after a full hearing, decided that the prcal Wltig party vat not dead, but living, and its Central Committees were liable for debts contracted in ils behalf. So now the great question is settled judicially. The Wh'g party is not dead in spite of Greeley, movement. and the New York is in a fever of agitation about a colored gentleman, a Dr. Pennington, who was denied a at in an omnibus on account of his color. The Tribune has a leading article on the subject and, for once, we can agree in sentiment v. iih that paper on the " colored question." It is a little remarkable that our northern friends, who are such dear lover of the negro race, bbould possevs a squcamishnef which is unknown at the South. Nothing is more com-n than for slaves to have seats in our southern snags, and if they happen to be of the feminine gender, our courtepy usually allows them undis-turlie- d possession of the "back seat inside, unless indeed there si ould be white ladies enough to .1 that select spot. Our southern people of color may learn from the case of Dr. Pennington how desirable is a position among the people of the North and hat value is to be attached to that boasted philanthropy which produces such results. I V r. Habiiix Covk-t- v The Nashville Railroad Validity or the Doxds. We learn that the slut of the Nashville Railroad Company againct the people of Hardin county, who to pay the interest on their bonds for their subscriptiontdiip to the road, was decided in the Hardin Circui Court at Elizabethtown yester-da- v, in favor of the Railroad Company. Judge Kincheloe presided in the case. Gov. lie lm aud E. S. Worthington, Esq., prosecuted in favor of the Railroad Company, and Elijah Hih a"jeared far the people of Hardin. They resisted on the gr.und that the law was unconstitutional, and it so the bonds were void. Mr. Wonhi'igton' opened the case in a powerful argument of three Lour duration, followed by Hise, in a ,teech of interminable length. Gov. Helm" laa'.ed about four hours, the entire discus-f-io- n exciting much interest. Every point was decided in favor of the Railroad Company, and we bope the people all along the line are now aliened, of the constitutionality of the law, and that the road will go ahead. , It is uncharacteristic, the humility with which we free, liberal, bold and chivalrous Americans wear our names. Few care to know else than that their father bore the same appellation, and genealogy, if not a forbidden study with us, is at least a forsaken one. There is nott let be known, a single name worn, however proudly or meekly, but has a history. It is sig nificant of something an I obtains a derivation somewhere. There are those surnames w hich have a local origin generally, if not universally, from our English ancestors. To this class do you belong, Messrs. Church, Hill, Dale, Carr, Combe, Cope, Craig, Cliff, Pitt, Flood, H.yes, Park, Holt, Hope, Warren, Wear, Green, Grove, Wood, Sbaw, Lane, Street, and divers others. These are them selves void of any signification, with reference to the condition in lite of those who first as sumed them. Persons who bear the names of specific places in England, must not suppose that their ancestors were either lords, or posses sors of such places, but, as Camden justly observes, "only that they originally came from them, or were born at them.' The great class of surnames is derived lrom occupations, r or instance, you, our respectable friend, Mr. Smith, "From whence came Sm th.sll.be he Knirlit or Squire, iiut l.oui the huiiUi lust foigelli at the hre." And so in fact of you, our dear friends Tay lor, Turner, Baker, Cook, Cooper, Clark, &c The great number of the family of Smith seems to la owing to this, tht the Smith of the age when surnames first became hereditary, included in his mystery the work which Wheeler, Cart' wright and the other Wrights afterwards per formed. Sometimes we have the good old En glish Smith corrupted into Smythe, just as Simon the cobbler in "Lucian," when he grew rich, called himself Simonides. When such a Smith or Smythe takes his name from his furnace, it has sometimes been changed successively by his wealthier descendants into Furniss, Fur nice and Furncse. Such traits of human nature have been frequently observed in this matter of nomenclature. Some nanus are derived from the christian name ot father or mother. In very early times the addition to the child's name of that of his father was not unusual, and the surname so formed was transmitted to descendants when surnames became hereditary. The twelve largest families of the English race are those known under the names of Smith, Jones, Williams, Taylor, Brown, Davies, Thomas, Evans, Roberts, Johnson, Robinson and Wilson, all ofwhkh except three (Smith, Taylor and Brown) are derived from patronymics. Each christian name gives rise to a variety of derivative surnames Among those from Henry, are Harrison, Harris, Hawes and Hawkins. Elias produces Ellison, Ellev. Ellis. Elliot and Elliotson. From David we kave Davies, Davidson, Davy, Dawes, Daw son and Dawkins. From Hugh, or the Scottish Hew, wc have Hughes, Huggins, Hugginson, Hewett, Hewson, Hewison, Hewlet and Hewell Trom Nicholas we have Nicholson, Nixon, Cole, Collet, Collins, &c. In olden time the diminutives of baptismal names were much used, and derivatives are frequently formed from such diminutives. Thus from Benjamin came the dimunitivs Ben, and the derivative Benson; from Gregory, Gregg and Grayson; from Geffry, Jeff and Jefferson; from Gilbert, Gibb, Gibson and Gibbon; from Matthew, Matson, Mathews and Matteson; from Samuel, Sams and Sampson; from Simon, Sims and Simpson; from Barthlomcw, Batts, Batson, Bates and Batteson; from Richardson, Dick and Dixon. the feminine derivatives are used, as Nelson from Nelly, Pattison from Patty, and so on to the end. Another class comprises descriptive names, or such as were originally applied to denote bodily peculiarities and mental qualities. Of these latter ire Good, Goodman, Beet, Sage, Wise, Meek, Moody, Joyce, Savage, Quick. The abstract is sometimes used for the concrete, as Luck, Justice, Virtue, Joye, Bliss, &.c. Those surnames derived from bodily peculiarities are comprehensible even to the uneducated. Every one understands the meaning of Bigg, Littel, or Liddell, Long, Longman, Prettyman, Short, Crump and Armstrong. So too, with Shanks, Hand, Foot, Light foot, and the like. There were surnames taken from sorre bodily characteristic, such as we have just mentioned, occasionally used in our mother country centuries prior to the Norman conquest, and long before surname were hereditary. Of these are While and Blutl, the oldest names, and if the rule upon which aristocracy it based be correct, the most noble in the language. Beda, in his account of the missionary efforts among the Saxons, refer to person named Hewald, w ho were distinguished "ut pro diversa capellorum specie, unus JVter Hewald, alter Albut Hewald diceretur," or as we uidearned people should say, one was called Hewald B'ark, and the other Hewald Wkite. Of the same class are Grey. Blunt, Locke, dec, all very ancient. Costume and armor also gave nam?. Many others were derived from the animal, mineral and vegetable kingdom. For instance, Berne, from the bear, vhile Wolf, Fox and those of like nature can be easily traced. To represent minerals we have Steele, Salt, Gould, Glass, dec. While the vegetable world finds its representatives in Primrose, Lilly, Rose, Ashe, Lind, Crab, Apple, Wheaton, Wheatly, Riley, Oats, Pepper, and numerous others that we might specify. But this is a subject that requires the thoughtful to be but once put on the trial to follow through all sort of sinuosities and to all degrees of length. In w hat we have thus hastily and confusedly set forth, the reader will discover enough to trace up at least the origin of his own surname, be whatever it may. If he discovers himself of plebeian derivation, so be it: if from some noble mental or bodily peculiarity, let him in all humility compare his preent self to his origin, and thank his stars that he is none the worse, while he immediately sct about being worthy of his name. Notwithstanding Col. Pe$ton'b letter of declination, which was published in the Courier yesterday morning, we understand that strong effort are being made by the Democrats to induce him to change his determination and to agree t make the race for Congress. The very men who opposed him with all their power two and three years ago, are now begging him to run, and, good souls, they don't want any pledge from him at all, at all. They think that their only chance to defeat the nominee ia with Col. Preston, but it is hardly probable that that gentleman will gTatify their w ishes. He would unquestionably make a strong race, but as we said some days ago, such is the intensity of the Native American feeling here, that even a more objectionable candidate than the one they now have could be easily elected. Against Seciecy. The New York Erprest, the K. N. organ in New York, has an article opposing the secrecy of the K. N.'. It eay the very genius of our institutions insists on knowing the principles of all sects and organizations, religious as well as political of knowing who the men are and what they are after. The Expres says that it will not be pardonable if, after the coming K. N. Convention at Philadelphia, the feature of secrecy i retained. The Virginia Election.

We regret to learn from the Bowling Green Standard that the health of Judge Loving continues very infirm. For two weeks past he has been seriously ill. Three negroes, belonging to a Mr. Byrne, of Orange Grove, Bourbon county, Ky., made their escape Thurslay, and crossed the river about tea miles below Cincinnati. The attention of anglers, as well as of scientific men, in Europe has lately been much occupied w ith the diflerent modes of artificial ng, and as the subject is well worthy of public attention, we take this opportunity to refer to The attention of mankind to this branch of industry dates back to the year 1731, in which Count de Goldstein established the possibility of artificial fecundation of trout's An ex tract from Gcldstcin's work was inserted in a w ork called Soiree t Heir ttiennet, and in 1770 Morceau gave a translation of it in the third volume of liis Trailc gaiirtl det Picket. About the same time Jacobi, a German naturalist, published an interesting letter upon the art of bringing up salmon and trout, and on the production of these fish by mean of artificial fecundation. At a later date successful experiments were made in Great Britain by Dr. Knox, Mr. Boccius, Mr. Shaw and Mr. A. Young. In 1835 Signor Busconi pub lished, in the seventy-nint- h volume of the BiLho-theca Italiana, new observations on the development offish, and gives some deta Is of the artificial fecundation of the eggs of the tench and ablette. Notwithstanding these varied and widely extend ed labors of men of science, it remained for two poor and illiterate fishermen to develope more fully the plans for the production of fish ah oro; and although the discovery of these peasants had been forestalled by the labors of past ages,yet they were as really the founders of this new branch of industry as were their more highly cultivated and fortunate predecessors. The names of these two persons were Gchinand Remy. They lived in one of the most secluded valleys of the cha:ji cf Vosges, purcuing their humble, occupation of fishermen. Whilst engaged in their daily avocation, the decrease and the threatened extinction of many species offish awakened their minds to the ncces sity for some plan which should have for its end the prorogation and continuation of the icthyo- loical fauna of their neighborhood, and with a rare and praisworlhy perseverance seldom found amongst the class to which they belonged, they carefully watched the natural process of hatch ing ta iit and developed therefrom the present manner of breeding by artificial means. On the announcement of their discovery the scientific world was, of course, in commotion. Envoys from the academies of Holland, Strasl urg, and Paris came to the inventors to be assured of the reality bf their claims. They w ere called to Paris their names inscribed among the members of the academy of sciences, and were honored by invi tations to dine w ith different persons of high rank This was the reward of t'.cir valuable utilita rian discovery! If the smallest pattern of an academician one called to his chair for successful piece of poetry had made such a dis covery, he would by this time have had crosses from every sovereign in Europe; but these are only two fishermen! The subject and the mode of artificial fecundation is one well worthy the attention not only of the disciples of Isaac Wal ton, but one which should possess much interest lor agriculturists and amateur farmers. This process will enable us to have, within easy reach and at a very cheap rate, all those delicate fish w hich are so esteemed by t picures, and which are now only to be had by a few fortunate men of wealth. One of the amateur farmers of our neighborhood has been very successful in his attempts to raise gold and silver fish from spawn, and we believe has the intention to try other varieties. We cannot urge too strongly upon the fishermen and farmers of our vicinity to turn their attention to the cultivation of fine varieties of fish, for they might be made as much an article of food as sheep or cattle, and with far less trouble. The following is the manner of procuring the spawn and treating the fish: "When they come up to spaw n catch a male and female of the same species, takinp the female first, hold her by the back with the left hand, and, U prevent her from struggling violently, press her head and body against you; with the other hand gently stroke the abdomen. In a few moments she will become quieted; then take a vessel filled with water should the fish still struggle call in the assistance of another person then taking the thumb and of the right hand, press lightly the belly from top to The operator must be care" ful not to press with too much force, for if the proper tune has been chosen, the eggs wjll be pressed out by a very gentle force, and if this is not the case be assured that the proper time has not yet arrived. "When, by a number of these passes, the eggs are all pressed out, a male fish is taken and operated on in the same manner; the milt thus expressed from the male falling into the reeeptacu'.um and giving the water a white hue, stir the mixture gently about with the hand or the tail of the fish. Before the mixture of the milt with the water covering the eggs, their color is a pale orange and transparent. After the mixture, the eggs that have been fecundated assume a brownish hue and a black speck appears in the centre of each. After this the water must be changed once or tw ice mire. When the fecundation is complete some of the eggs w ill appear white; remove them, as they are lifeless and will only destroy the living ones. The ncxtjthing necessary is a box, pierced with a great number of small holes, in order to let the water have a free passage through the box, and still keep it purged from impurities, which would otherwise be deposited upon them and retard or prevent altogether their hatching. The bottom of the box is covered by a bed of fine gravel, and on this is placed the fecundated eggs. Each box should contain but one brood of eggs. The box is then closed, a hole is dug for it in the gravelly bottom of a running stream of fresh water, in w hich it is placed and gravel strewed over it. The box, so placed, is left for a month or two, or longer should this not suffice, when the young fish wil commence to appear. They should be kept inclosed from eight to fifteen days, according as their numbers are small or great, then they should be set at liberty in the same water as that in w hich they were hatched. The fish thus produced must still be fed with meat cooked, and the fibres of it separated into small pieces; when they grow somewhat older they may be left to seek their own food, and in course of time will reward the operator for his trouble by furnishing his table with fish of his own raising. We leave this subject, regretting that space and time has forced us to treat it so imperfectly, and refer those who may become interested in the subject of pisciculture, to a little work called "Artificial Fish Breeding," by W. H. Fry, where a resume of all the labors in thi department of practical science may be found, and to which work we are principally indebted for this article. Cheat Wheat Ceop. We learn that the wheat throughout Jefferson county never looked finer than now, and that the yield will be the most prolific ever known. A farmer, three miles only from the city, has a field of wheat w hich he says is in perfect condition, and anticipates a large yield. He counted on one stalk sixty-fiy- e shoots, each of which was bearing grain. Bcllitt CorvTY. We understand that Phil. Lee, Esq., is a candidate for the Lcgialature in the county of Bullitt.

Water. to fall qnite rapidly, despite the rainy weather, with only four feet two inches water in the canal last evening, by the mark. Daring the previous twenty-fou- r hours the river had receded eight inches, and it is now lower than at any former period this season. The weather j erterday was warm, the thermometer hav ing risea to 71, with very hard rains ear.y in the morning and raining again last night. It was raining hard at Cincinnati, and the prospects of a rise are favorable. Fassengcrs that left Cincinnati yesterday on the cars report heavy rains all through IudiaDa, and nil the tributary streams rising fast. Coats that arrived at Ciucinnati Tuesday evening report the Scioto swelling and the Ohio rising a little at Portsmouth. The river continues The Virginia Election. It is amusing, says the Cumberland Herald, to note the change in the tone of the pap-fe- d organs oi tne administration in Ohio since the election of Mr. Wise in Old Virginia. During the contest they half conceded his probable defeat, spoke of him contemptuously as a sort of renegade-Whir-T- y lonte, w ith but slight claims on the Democratic party, and prepared themselves to be as resigned as possible, when joining the funeral train of their party, stretching from Maine to Iowa. The first lightning flashes from Western Virginia after the election, as all remember, were favor able to Sam, and the organs piped still more lugubriously. But the second flashes began to turn the tables, and Wise at once became a very clever Democrat. The thiid and fourth flashes made him the very Hercules of the party w ho had laid Sam sprawling, and stood with heels y on neck of the of the spoils-lovin- g demagogues. Jubilations knew no bounds. Cannon thundered from city to city, the dusty Chapmans that had taken no airings, save to crow over insignificant victories in scattering townships, villages and cities for a year or more, were brought out and set to splitting t! cir throats, as of old, and the recent Whig-Ty'eriwas transformed to the greatest and besf of Demo demi-god- s. cratic How they ro r! how they shout ! just as though Virginia for seventy years, had not voted one way on Presidential elections Funny, is it not! The N ew York Eiprest editors have some ki- terest, we believe in Virginia soil, and are well posted upon V lrginia characteristics. They pronounce her now but a secondary State in tiie Union, and assert that Illinois and Georgia, of the second-clas- s States, are more important and have more real influence in the Union. That tl prejudices of her farmers are unconquerable that there is never anything to diversify her pol itics and that Virginia must be set dow n at certain to go for the Democratic candidate bt it Martin Van Buren, William Lloyd Garrison, or Rev. Antionette Brown. The word, not tlu sense, tickles the majority of the people. The Exprest adds This Virginia election, in only one point of view, is important, and that is. in the' resuscitation of thn Tlsnirai;,, .. ti.... .. been a funeral among that party and the ouly Northern member left of New Hampshire, was buried the other day. Virginia starts it again into life puts it upon the track and shows that it is Lot all stone dead qnite nothing more. It is the same "Old Virg'nia" that voted for Van Buren against Harrison, and for Tierce again?, its old gallant Scott, w ho, for being his birth place, has made it as illustrious in our day cs it was for being the birth place of Washington. And it will be "Old Virginia," till the free school riddles the Accomacs and the Isles of Wight till the locomotive and telegraph rattle with thunder and lightniug through all the Alleghenies, and in all hei vailevs and ridres. bheproduees.it is true, rainy intelligent, nay", some of the very best of our living statesmen but a majority of her fanners and pi inters are prejudiced fanatical, bigoted on politics, unlearning nothing however much they learn. It is enough for Massachusetts to go one way for Virginia, right or wrong, to go the other. tQy We confess our astonishment at the immense 6ales of Hurley's Sarsaparilla, and occasionally ask ourselves, Is it possible Hurley has so far succeeded as to monopolize the market! The facts are so beyond all doubt, and though we had the highest opinion of the medicine, and from the very first gave it a decided preference, yet it would appear almost incredible that such extended and liberal patronage would greet its introduction. There remains then but one thing to be decided, (its superiority over all other compoi'nds is satisiactorily settled,) and that is to continue preparing it exactly by the same process, and of equal strength, and the result will doubtless be a colossal fortune. Desperate Affray in Sheldy. We lcam from the Shelby Newt, that at Rockville, in the southeastern part of that county, on Friday last, the 1st inst., a desperate affray occurred between Mr. James C. Hite and Mr. William M. Nolan. There had been some previous misunderstanding between the parties, and on that morning, Mr. Nolan being at the store at Rockville, Mr. Hite came there and renewed the difficulty. In the fracas which ensued, Hite received two very severe cuts one on the side of his face, the other on one of his arms, and four stabs, one only of which is deemed very severe, as it probably entered the cavity of the body. Nolan was cut badly on the head with iron weights by Hite. Chicago. The editor of the St. Louis It.telH-genehas recently visited Chicago. He says that " one-ha- lf of the population is made up of runners, and beggars, whi add more to the wealth of the city than the other half." He further says that "Chicago is a city, bought, built and boarded in by owners who live in the East. It is rented out to sixty or seventy thousand people, on condition that they make the most of it a condition which all agree is to the uttermost complied with. The landlords living in New York, the tenants invariably look to the East for improvements and for money to make them." J. Q. A.

We learn from the Shelby Newt that on Saturday last a chicken was hatched out, on the premises of Mr. Jas. Buford, in that county, with three legs; all of natural length, and perfect in form. The chicken was alive and doing well at last accounts. Heavy Damages. A verdict for seven thousand five hundred dollars has been obtained in Henderson county, Tennessee, against Rev. J. 11. Graves, editor of the Tennessee Baptit, for libel uttered in that paper. The hot season having arrived, the sugar broker in New Orleans have resolved that they will enter into no transactions after 1 o'clock P.M. In the Courier of Wednesday we briefly tl- luded to the death of Chas. Quirey, the Sheriff of Jefferson county. Mr. Q. died at his residence in this city Tuesday night at 11 o'clock, after a protracted illness from disease of the luns. He was a native of the county and fifty-foyears of ao-e-. As a merchant, mannf-cfurp- r. an.1 nnh. i lie officer, he was well known in this community, and highly esteemed. In all these relations he sustained through his life the most blameless re putation. His charactet for integrity, for honor, and for m nliness was beyond censure." No one ever attached the intention of wrono- - to any act of his life. here errors marked hi course of conduct, they resulted from the judgment and not from the heart. Mr. Quirey was for many years an extensive merchant in this city. Afterwards he officiated as Sheriff, an 1 at the second election under the new constitution he was chosen by the people High Sheriff. August he was to a second term, by a large majority over a popular competitor. In his official capacity he served the State and the people with great fidelity, no man having ever occupied that position who gave greater satisfaction. He was just both to his constituency an J the Commonwealth, serving each alike without fear or favor. About thirty years ago Mr. Quirey became cn nccted with the Baptist Church, and since then has been a leading member of that denomin: tion Pcrliaps it was in his church relations that this estimable gentleman best displayed his noble traits of character. He was emphatically a good man; a Christian not only in name, but in every deed of his life. As an officer in the churchhaving been many years a deacon he was more serviceable to the establishment of his peculiar futh in this city than any other man.
