NO MAIL!! NO MAIL!! Prom any quir
ter for the last week. ', As usual. it arrived
iu good time, c n Tlniri Jay night, but without
any thing, from St. Louis. Two passengers,
however, came through from that place, who
informed us that the mail m'ght have Crossed
the Missouri when they did, f the carier
had been, disposed. : .What shall we say to
thist What excuse can be -found Ur the
contractor frcm Su lii to St. Charles or
even for the Post Master at the latter place!
Is it not hi duty, when he finds that the
n": aj! is dot lined nhhout any sufficient cause,
to St'ud for it, nd charge the Department!
We do not pretend t be well versed in the
Pwsi office regulations, but it strikes us this is
his duty. And if it is, is he not grossly neg
lecting it! As lor the contractor, he ha
shown himself to be above all law, and there
fore we shall not trouble him. If wo thought
it would be of anv service to him, we would
lecture him for a full hour. But we are sat
isfied that ha is a hopeless cast, and all th:it
we can do is to turn him over to the tender
mercies of the Postmaster General. Score
it o.v to him without stint Mr. Kn.'all.
Cut "then is no sw in crying over.epilt

apology for not informing them what Cngres

e-rap of nor tint has readied n,.s that the
Legislature of Illinois, his legalised the sus
pension ofthe State Hju'i, in the lower House
by a vote of 54, to 34 The Senate h id not
acted upea it, but the rumor, is, that there
was no doubt but that, that body would con
cur with the House. We do not vouch fir
the truth of this statement, but the report
comes to us in such a shape, as to induce us
to place con-deoe in its correctness. From
ur previous information on tlt'u subject, we
bid come to'the conclusion, that a diderent
course would have been pursued, and that
the bank woulJ be compelled to wind up its
affairs. If one hili of the c!i irges preferred
against it be true, it deserved no mercy at
the hands of the legislature But viewing the
present embarrassed condition of the State,
as well as of the people, it was perhaps
mre politic to legalize its suspension, than to
have forced ii to wind up its affairs, within

last number of the Salt River Journ il. my
attention vis attracted by the signature of
Cuivre, and beingpermsdeJ that ha commu
nication had so.ne connexion with matters of
interest M our county, I concluded to give
it a perusal. On examination I perceived it
treated on a subject which his elicted mush
reflection in our county for many months
past. The subject is the building a Court
House in Pike County. Tint a Court House
is much needed, no one will disaffirm, an! I
doubt not seven-eights of our citizens, are
more than willing to contribute their propor
tionable shires towards its erection: I am
much gratified that friend Cuivre has broach
ed this subject and hope that his views and
suggestions may eventuate in the promotion
of the desired object. Whn I s-iy tint I
sin pleased with the agitation of the ques
tion, as to the propriety of building a Court
House, I do not wih to be understood as
fully embracng all the vie ws of Mr. Cuivre.

Cuivre with all his ingenuity will n.i succeed
in en'.iapping the citizens of Pike county.
He may proclaim that ths records are in an
unsafe condition, thit the present Court
House ii a reproach to our county, yet the
enlightened citizens ol this county will rec
ollect that their interest ren'.ires that thev
should not be too hist v in this matter, ft
they act too precipitately ou this suVject, in
all probability the court house wi'l remain at
Bowling-Green for many years, which would
be a great source of mortification to them.
the county court will not he hurried into
this matter by the hasty animidvcrsi n of
Mr. Cuivre, and the sonll artillery ot his at
tendants who assist him in hi, work of injus
tice. The gentlemen who compose our coun
ty court, are men of experience and are, I
believe determined to net in this matter with
mu?ri ieit:MraTion, and nv pursuing this
cv.j:se tity will dfcserve well of their con
stituents. Pi'.il it may be asked wiialare the

reply the scarcity of water is not one f the
least formidable. As to the force oftliisob.

In conclusion, ' I would advise .the county
court to let this matter rest until it can be
ascertained at what point the people desire
the court house to be located. It will be
recollected that a considerable Dumber of
years have elapsed since the town of Bow

and that it is probable that the tid of senti

the revenue- of the
erected without delay. But the condition of
our county Treasury should first be ascer
taioed. Cuivre1 asks "what becomes of the
large revenue of this county!" This ques
tion is a fair one aod deserves en answer,
the people have a right to know what is and
what has been don with their money.
Mies e the law makes it the duty of the
County Court to examine into the situation
and proceedings of the county Treasury
once a year, and oftener il they deem it ne
cessary; and it also makes it the duty of ih-"
Treasurer and the Clerk to report to the
Court what monies have been received, anJ
from what source, what has been paid out, to
whom and for what purpose. This being the
case I think it an ensy task for the Court to
satisfy 'Cuivre,' and the public, as to what
has been done with the large revenue of the
county, and at the same time shew us wheth
er we are prepared to undertake a new Court
House. Should it turn out that there is not
more revenue in the Treasury than is neces
sary to defray the present debt and current
expenses of the county, I do not see how
tube courtcaa order a new building, as there
is perfnps no law auttionzmg shorn to raise a
special revenue for. such purposes, besides
the taxes are nearly as high already as the
law allows, nor am I so certain that it would
meet with the will and wishes of the people,
to raise the taxes still higher for any purpose,
for 1 have, and you may have heard many
complain, during this last year, of the heavy
taxation of this county. We cannot won
der then, that the county court has been
economising and difiJent in the matter.
I do not wish to be understood as being
opposed to a new and comfortable Court
House in our County, but I wish the Court
to see the way clear for accomplishing the
undertaking without having to oppress the
people when they are the least able to bear
iu for it is notorious that money is very
scarce in our country and it may remain so
for some time. Should the court make an
order raising the taxes to the highest extent
of the law, would it not be necessary to or
der nt tlie same time that nothing but specie
be taken n by the collectors! Our present
an(J unen tlnt by ,he .'e revenue is
j - , t nv n,u be wort, fifty cents ;n
. ,n ,, .,u" n -,
the Mate have taken that trocrse, and very
wisely too perhaps. This is a matter that miy
be worthy the consideration of the Court.

manufacture of iron, ship and steamboat

than it can be sent to Pittsburgh, and bittu

Among the thousand travellers detained
