Arrangements are made by th« city press to do the fair thing by our country friends, and the intention is to make them all "glad they were here."

We waiit all to come' — bring along their wives, and their little Ones, even unto the third and fourth generations. Those who ar« not married but have sweethearts, will bring them without fail or run the risk of being expelled from the profession, while tbe old bachelors, if there are any of that sort in the editorial chair, will, if they can't get a wife of their own, before the time arrives, bring along some one elses! ifter the business of the Convention in over, and there is considerable business on hand, those having their wives along, will be in no hurry to return home, and can stay with us a while.

The LADBOH OF THB IJKW STSAMBS.—The Buffalo Exprcti of the 20lb Inst. says: Tbe launch yesterday of tlie steamer Detroit from the ship yard of Messrs. Mason & Bidwell, was a fine affair, and was witnessed by one of Ilia largest crowds that has ever been assembled upon such an occasion. Tbe situation of tbtf ship yard fa such that there is every facility for a eight of tbe kind being enjoyed by a large number of people, and all the advantages of view were fully improved. The open square upon this side of the oreek was flllfd with uarmgea the occupants of which were enabled to witness the spectacle at their ease, while the dook, and the roofs of all the surrounding buildings Were covered with spectators. A Considerable num'«r crossed the creek, besides those who were favored with cards of invitation on board the steamer, and missed it iu so doing, as the view warks on the inside and outside are 2 inches thick, Under the rail both inside and out, anil running Ste entire length of the steamer*, ar? two oak^-ringers, 3 Inches thick and* 12 in- oties wide. These aru bolted together through the timbers; and the rail, which is 4 inches thick and U inches wide, U securely boltei to the end* of the timbers and also to i stringer*, thus forming a complete arch, adding B feet to the depth of the hull. — This is an enflra new feature in steamboat building, Thay WB1 be the same rig as th* ocean steamships, 4id will spread about 1600 yards of canvass.

DANCING SCHOOL MAEMS.—In. the slate of New York, a young lady was lately refused a teacher's certificate by 'a school commissioner, because she declined pledging herself not to dance during her school engagement. SUe appealed to the State Superintendent,who decided that shu had a right to dance and leaoli too The State Superintendent's tiead is level. The idea that a young lafly is to confine herself nine hours a day, in a hot school house, and then sit around nights like a bottle of shoe blacking—to be kept shut up for fear she will shine —is preposterous. School teachers, ministers and editors, require relaxation from almost unceasing brain labor. Ministers can talk and take care of themselves, if not too ignorant or too hypocritical. Editors generally look out for number ou«, and We are glad to see that la dy teachera are are opening thrir eves. This line-liacked, stiff-necked, long, hollow hearted, God cheating, man deceiving, mock virtuous, outside morality, that forbids ministers to laugh, editors to crack a joke, or teachers of schools to enjoy themselves as they please when they have finished a hard days labor, re all a—humbug. sboi-H. The steamer Arrow brought up crowd of spectators, and lay too just below tbe launch, where her passengers had an ex celleiit view. Several Ings also came Op with loads of lookers-on, and it would b«a dfficol matter to estimate tbn number who were at tracled by the prouj.=, u i a 8 ight which, un fortunately, is rarer now-a-days than it used to be. ^Severn! hundred availed themselves of the invitations that were courteously issued by Mr. Movins, and took a passage in the steamer for her first trip, from the dry land to the element which she is to adorn. These were all assembled «arly on board— and had need to be prompt lor the punctuality of the launch one of its most admlr&ulo features. Th is usually upon such occasions a want- o/ readiness which occasions delay, and fatigues tbe spectators with waiting. But every preparation yesterday was complete, and when tlie hour announced had arrived, there was nothing to prevent an Instantaneous knocking away of the stays, and a quick passage of the vessel down the slippery plane.
