Cohbection. An error occurred in
our last paper, in the letter of Mr. J. H.
Brow n, on the republic of Texas. In
describing the boundary, it reads, "down
the Rio Grande to its beginning.'" It
should read "thence down that stream
to its mouth, thence with the gulf to the
place of beginning."
Pleascbe Tmr to Nacvoo. Now
is the favorable time for all who have
any inclination to visit the far famed city
ofNauvoo. It w ill be seen from au ad
vertisement in another columi;, that the
new and splendid steam boat Missouni

tlemanly and accommodating officer, M.
Littleton, will touch at Louisiana, on
the morning of the 4th of July, at 5
o'clock, for the purpose of receiving on
board all who w ish to avail theuiseUts
-of a pleasure trip to Kauvoo. She w ill
also iouch at Clarksville, where a num
ber arc expected to join the party and
at Hannibal, Marion City, Quincy, La
Grange, Tully, Warsaw and Keokuck.
A band of music will be in attendance,
w hich w illcontribule largely to the enjoy -incut
of the party. And w e are tol-i
the arrangements throughout, ere all up
on the most liberal scale, and yet, the
whole expense of the trip from Louisia
na tc Nauvoo and back, will be but two
dollars. Who would not give two dol

since; and we are happy to say that a

fourth, notwithstanding the gloomy pros
pect up to the time of our last week's
issue. Some, we understand, have cen"
surcd us for the remarks made in our pa
per last week, in relation to the defunct
barbecue To such we have only to say,
that we did not make those remarks un
advisedly. We made inquiry of sundry
gentlemen, and among them were some
;wo or three of the committee of ar
rangements, and we could not learn from
any quarter, that any efficient steps
were being taken in the matter at all
and -we more readily come to the conclu
sion that the thing had failed, from the
fact that there was no unanimity of feel
ing from the first. And further we had
not forgotton the hurra of last vear, w hen
the whole country w ere invited, in a
flaming announcement made through the
columns of the Radical, to "come and
partake of milk and honey, without mo
ney and without price" and w hat did it
amount to ? We will tell you. It so
happened that some two or three of our
citizens had determined lo attend a bar
becue given at Auburn, some twenty
two miles distant ergo ours must be
abandoned and so it was and fo it
would have been again this year, but for
the remarks made by us hist week.
Notwithstanding the thing fill through
last year clealry from a want of that pub
lic spirit and concert of action which
are the only sure guarantees for the suc
cess of any enterprise of the kind, and
with these facts before us though we
regret it now we made w hat wc con
sidered a very smooth apology for the
committee of arrangements, and wc have
no doubt that they were highly gratified
that we were simple enough to do so.
But on tin's occasion, our apology has not
been so favorably received, and we mus;
say, in view of the whole proceeding,
lhat wc don't much care.
In justice to a portion of our citizens
we i'eem it proper to remark that there
arc raav'y WB0 o not fall under the impu
tation of want f public spirit, and a
