Di Tac TkM : Wednesday evening 20tli,
found me at this place. To reach it from Mil
waukee, Whence I last wrote yon, I took the
La Crott 4' Mittrautcet Rood, at aboat 1 P. Vi
and after a comfortable, but not very rapid ride
of 64 miles, over a fine furming but somewhat
hilly conotry, reached what ia culled the Junc
tion, the intersection of the La Crws MUrrau-l-re,
with the Catras-a, St. rani & Fond du
Lae road, having a termination at present, at a
point on the west bank of Lake Winnebago;
known by the enphonloos name of Oshko, Tt
the month of the Wolf, or Fox River. A dis
tance of 32 miles from the junction brought me
to' this place. The opening tf the La Crors
road, was celebrated but a few (1hv( before my
arrival iu this vicinity, by a . general turn out
of the leading citizens ulong stid near the line,
includisg the military from Milwaukee, ond the
editorial fraternity mi libitum. After a passago
over this very important route to La Cross, tho
trip was continued to St. Paul, St. Anthony's
Falls, Minnehaha, and other pliicrs on the route
and in the nelghbirhood,and by a portion of
the company to Fort Sneliing, somewhat re
nowned of late by a swindling mnnrcuvro incu
bated and consuruatcd by this poor swindle of
an administration. Some of onr editorial breth
ren, aud the officers of the Rond, to whom I
brought letters, expressed tho regret that my
journey had cot brought mo a few days earlier,
that the pleasures of the excursion might have
been shared with them. I can assure you that
my regrets on this score were as earnest and
sincere as theirs appeared to be, A section of
country possessing more interest than that em
braced in this excursion, could not bo named.
The enjoyments of the occasion were spokeu of
in terms of high praise, of the purt taken by tho
R. R. Company, aud of much satisfaction at the
receptions along the route, nnd the objects of in
tereet that lay in the path of the party. The
La Crose Road is well built and well equipped,

to the La Cross Road.
The Cfci'cogo, St. Paul Fond du tac Road,
is one of thoee unfinished institutious which arc
so frequently to be met with in the west, in va
rious stages of development, from the serpen

frequent intervals, to those partially fiiikhed
and equipped, like the one iu question, which
has a miming distnnce of something over 50
miles, and struggling for a troblous and uncer

hope, that "good time coming. Iho contem
plated line of this road is from Chicago by way
of Janesville, North to Lake Superior, with a
branch to St. Paul. The brauch conception
I learn, has been given up, or suspeuded, by a
competing line, aL-o running from the La Cross,
in a North Westerly direction, and but 15 or 20
miles West of this place.

S20S of the place, is a city, for-sootb, of no
mean pretentions. It is nestled at the head (or
foot, as yon please,) ol Lake Winnebago, with
a level, rich surface, elevated but a little above
the luke, and eujoying a moderate harbor, form
ed by the month of the Foud du Lac River.
Its principle business is lumbering, and about
a dozen mills cutting from 25,000 to 100,000 ft
of lumber each, per week, dot the margin of the
River. The lo for this lumber are cut io tho
winter, along the rivers, emptying into the Lake,
which give access to the pineries of the inte
rior, some 250 miles, aud are run into the lake,
aud rafted by the aid of steam to tho river's
month. The city contains about 8,000 inhabi
tants. Its distance from Lake Michigan, is 40
mile3, and from Milwaukee 65 miles, ii) a north
westerly direction. It is tho county seat
Fond du Lnc County. The luke has an extent
North and South of 40 miles, and is connected
by river and canal with Green Bay and Luke
Michigan. The country west is of great beauty
and agricultural excellence, composed of priirie
and oak openings. Wheat is the natural pro
duct, and the yield, when uniijured is profitable
and satisfactory. In a favorable season, one
crop has been sufficient to pay for the land, from
which it was gathered. The past, however,
has been a most discouraging scuson. An ac

it discharged, putting the whole load into

LOUISVILLE, Ky., Oct. 25, 1858.
Case or Kidsappiso. Horace Bell, who
released his father and brother from Brad-
enburg Jail last July, committed on the
charge of running off negroes,- was taken
on Saturday from the Fair grounds at New
Albunv. I rid . without a warrant, nnd
brought into Kentucky, by Louisville offi
cers. The New Albanians became tremen
dously excited. Tho fire-bells were rung
and a large meeting held on Saturday eve-
ninsr. A hundred people have chartered
the ferry-boat Empire and talk of going to
Bradenbnrg to-ibiy to rescue Bell. An ex
press has been sent from Louisville to Brud
cuburg to place the citizens on their guard
agaiust the hostile expedition. Gov. Wil
lurd of Indiana has promised a requisition
on the Governor of Kentucky for the men
w ho captured Bell. . '
A meeting has been called here to de

A BLAVE OYAGE ABANDONED. It IS

Ensrlnnd sailors on tho slavtf ship. Hie
bark Isle de Cuba arrived at Boston on
Wednesday morning from the Western
Islands, in charge of L. W. Turner, the
mate, who belongs in Charlestown. The
mate aud crew ch'ppcd in New York with
out any suspicious of the real purpose of
the voyage, snpposing they were destined
fur a legitimate trading trip to the coast of
Africa On their arrival ui at. Miehonls,
all hands were called aft, when Capt. Dob
son disclosed to them his plans, saying he
was bound for the coast to obtain a cargo
of slaves, ond asked if they had any ob
iection to iro. offertnz at the same tune
irreat inducements as to their pay. They
all. however, refused to accompany him on
such a voyage, ond the captain finding the
determination of the crew could not oe
changed by any promises, and getting some
what frightened for. fear the crew would
enter a complaint ngnitist nun, lie concluded
to abandon tho vessel and the voyage.
Three men who had embarked as pnssen
gers, but who were evidently agents for the
purchase of slaves, also left the vessel, aud
Mr. Turner with his crew of eleven brought
the vessel to Boston and placed it in the
bands of the T. S. marshal. It is hoped
that the names of those who fitted her out
for her piratical voyage will be discovered.
The vessel is owned by Mr. De la Rugannre,
New York. The sailors are principally
Danes and Dutch.

The ma.ss of undesirable goods in market i
very great, and prices of these ere very
heavy. This is especially the case with
woolens. Desirable silks and dress good-

prices are rtendy. Any goods, however,

trated .this season.' A few houses have
been doing a very Inrge busines. Many
houses have done a fair .business, but
greut many have done but poorly. . The
woolen trado lias done less than the bilk
trade, on account of its great overstock of
winter goods. Domtstio goods are iu mod
erate demand, but prices are not so firm.
The auction sales are unimportant. The
jobbers find their trade much curtailed, but
are looking wltb expectation o renewals
orders aud a later trade; an czpection
w hich is based ou the fact, that the early
purchases were limited in am u nt, and hard
ly sufficient to sinply a winter stock to
their country customers.
