Mr. Clay and (he. lYlIsaonrl Comp
mitt Historical Error. -
Our neighbor, the Banner, has fallen into
the error of asserting that Mr. Clay "advo
cated and paswed through Congress" the act
of 1820, to admit Miwonri into the Union,
sometimes called the Miwoari Comprtrfrtse,
which contained a clause to probl bit slavery
forever in all the residue of that territory out
of which Missouri was carved, tyinjr North of
36 deg. 30 min. r This anti-slaVery clause hav
ing been repealed, in the Nebraska bill of
1854, our neighbor assorts that tboee who
voted against the repeal were but following
the lead of Mr. 01a7, in 1820, who, our neigh
bor thinks, exerted "Liihself to establish this
line of 36 d.-g.O min. This is a great mis
take. The impression that Mr. Clay was the au
thor of that measure, having been extensively
propagated iu 1850, be took occasion publicly
to disclaim it, Brl since then, iu 1854, and
again in 18.58, his friends, both iu and out of
Congress, have luet this erroneous statement,
a often as it has been presented, and refuted
it by reference to the records.
In his place id the Senate, in 1850, Mr. Clay
I beg to be allowed to correct a great error,
not merely in'the Senate, but throughout the
whole country, in respect to my ageucy in
regard to the Missouri Compromise, or rather
the line of 36 deg. 30 min.. t-ttablifbed by the
agency of Congress. I do not know whether
anything has excited un-re surprise iu my
mind w to the rapidity trith which important hit
b.ne il transactions are olliierattd ami put out of
vitmury, than has the knowledge ot the fact
that 1 was everywhere con;!.T.d the author
of the line of 36 deg. 30 ni'ii., which was
established upon the occasion ot the admission
ol Missouri into the Union."
Mr. Clay addod "So far from my having
presented as a proposition the line of 36 deg.
30 min., upon the occasion of considering
whether Missouri ought to be admitted into
the Union or not. it did not originate in the
House of which I was a member." Again he
said, while he had no doubt he voted for it
with other southern members, as I was
speaker of the House, and as the journal does
not show which way the Speaker votes, ex
cept in the cases of a tie, I am not able to tell
with certainty lu te I actually did vote."
Hut when the North still resisted the ad
mission of Missouri, notwithstanding this
anti-t-lavery condition, Mr. Cliy, the next
year, (1821.) did present a resolution, having
no reference to the question of prohibiting
slavery, which inaugurated the compromise
under which Missouri was finally admitted
This was the actual Missouri Compromise, but
craduallv the error obtained currency of
designating the line ot 36 deg. 30 min., the
Missouri Compromise line, and of attributing
it to Mr. Clay's influence and exertions,
In his speech on the Compromise bill of
1X50, Mr. Clay combattrd the principle of the
Missouri Compromise line, as it was called.
He said :
" '-What was done, sir. by the Missouri line ?
Slavery was positively interdicted north of
that line. The question of the admission or
. exclusion of slavery south of that line was
not settled." ''If there is a power to inter-
1 elict, there is a power to admit; and I put it
nii4o gentb-men from the South, are they pre-
D ..pared to be satisfied with the line of 36 deg.
, 30 min. interdicting slavery north of that line,
and giving them no security forthe admission
""i.f slavery south of that line?" "It is inter
roiliction upon the one side, with no correu
jd'M'iiding provision, for its admission on the
ther side ot the line of 36 deg. 30 min. When
w came to consider the subject, and to com
t lire the provisions of the line of 30 deg. 30
Cnin. the Missouri Compromise line with the
M dan which I have proposed for the accommo
lation of this question, said I to myself, if I
K iter the line of 36 deg. 30 min. to inderdict
'orhe question of slavery north of it, and to
ave it unsettled and open south of it, I offer
lat which is illusory to the south I oiler
I!iat which will deceive them; if they sup
agiose that slavery will be received south of
swiatline. It is .." al
i ii is uciier iur tue ixjijim, tout mere
caiould be non-action at to slavery both north and
tiri'A of the line tar better that there should be
tD)n-action both sidi sof the line, than that there
- tould be action by the interdiction on the
eieside, without action for the ud mission on
e other side of the line. Is it not so ? "
' Again he said :
t4 It was high time that the wounds which
re Wilmot Proviso had inflicted, (this anti
, livery restriction was the same in effect to
, 5 territory where itapplii-d with the Wilmot
,lo.-!so,) t bou Id be healed up and closed ;
' til that to avoid, in all future time, the agita-
a which must be produced by the conflict
, opinion on the slavery question, the true
unple triich ought to regulate the action of Cuii-
a it iu forming territorial governments for
3 th newly acquired domain, is to rerain
rjj all legislation on tie'tukject in the territory
uirid, o long as it retains the territorial
t,,i:n of government," -
ina wis principle tne antagonistic prin-
c to the Missouri line of 3C d 'g. 30 min.
Clay did succeed iu incorporating in bis
promise bill of 1850, as applicable to
h and New Mexico, in the following
. 09, that
t "when admitted as a State, the said
itory, or any portion of the same, shall
tceiveu into the Union, wtln or utlluul
Efc .1 ...... iL.

ucd these are the very words incorporated in
Juntas, Nebraska Act of 1854 the act that
a tl8 the old Missouri Compromise act pro-
cljpg slavery north of the line of 3C deg.
;a3ftn. So that the very essence of Mr.
lll principle of 1850, is the antagonism
aIi overthrew the old Missouri Compromise
!n f 36 deg. 30 min., and so far from Mr.
Habiing the advocate ofthe latter, his la
M pd most eloquent appeals in the Senate
kgainst its injustice, and to demonstrate
Ioi had not advocated or originated it.

In bur Ute invesUgatioa'the offices of
Comptroller and Secretary of Sta'fefasa Joint
JSelett Committee appointed by the Legisla
ture, We had no motive to do 'Injustice' to the
tntenmbents or to any others, bu felt bound
by the 'highest considerations of duty to as
certain as nearly as possfkVe the true state of
facts, and faithfully to report it to the public,
regardless of consequences to ourselves. We
soon saw that fee labor would be difficult and
disagreeable. V.'e foresaw that there would
be persons deeply interested in diverting pub
lic attention from the disclosures to be made.
It was not, therefore, with much surprise that
we lsav the recent publications over the sig
natures, respectively, of Messrs. Crozier, Lut
trell, S pence, and the earlier one "of Dr. F. N.
W. Burton; commencing even before our report
was published. But we were hardly prepared
to anticipate the bitterness of attack which
characterize the two cardsof Mr. Crozier. ne
takes issue with our conclusion that the books
of the Comptroller's office were "not proper
ly kept," and says the Committee were "tot al
ly unacquainted with tbo business and unfit for
the investigation of the duties assigned them,
and therefore wholly incapable of judging
how books should be kept." He ssiys we are
totally wrong as to the overplus of $48,383
08 interest paid on State bonds above the
amount due by the State, and taunts us with
the proposition to leave the questions at is
sue to be decided by certain named gentle
men. We submit if it would not have been
better for Mr. Crozier to wait till the Commit
tee's report, with the testimony taken, is laid
before the public before attempting in such
hot haste to divert public opinion? The re
port is now in the hands of the printer, and
will soon be published, under the authority
of the Governor. In the meantime we will
content ourselves by saying in reply to Mr.
Crozier's cards.that we have ample proof that
bis books were riot properly kept that his
reports to the Legislature for the six years be
was in office, invariably contained material
errors that be did not correctly report the
amount of State bonds outstanding that h
did not correctly represent the amount of in
terest due on londs that be failed to comply
with the plain requisitions of the law to keep
in the books of hi office an accurate registra
tion of all the notes issued for circulation to
the free banks that he omitted to keep a rec
ord of the dates and amounts of bonds depos
ited by the free banks that he failed to re
port the proper date of the maturity of bonds
in many instances, and that in other particu
lars bis negligence to do what was clearly his
duty to do was such as to give the Commit
tee the greatest difficulty iu arriving at the
true stale of facts. We were not disposed to
make exposures a shade more pointed than
was sufficient to acquit ourselves of a faithful
discharge of duty. But truth to say it was
difficult to ascertain from the Comptroller's
books whether warrants which had been issued
were paid or not. In his three several re
ports to the Legislature Mr. Crozier seems to
have tliought that State bonds which bad been
issued to the Lagrange and Memphis Kail
road, amounting to 10.250 dollars had been
canc-lled, when in fact the bonds are still
outstanding, and be bss been paying interest
upon them for six years, apparently, without
knowing it. These bonds, No. 22, 23, 24, 25,
26. 27, 28, 29, 30 and 31, are now in the hands
of Mr. A. V. S. Lindaley, w ho has been regu
larly drawing interest upon them, and yet
Mr. Crozier has never reported these bonds as
a part of the State debt One other case of
this sort we will cite and pass to other mat
ters. A State bond for $1500, issued to the
Gallatin Turnpike Company, was returned,
and, in lieu of it and parts of two bonds
(amounting to $500) issued to the Lagrange
and Memphis road, two new bonds were issued
of $1000 each; keeping ont the same amount of
liability. Yet Mr. Crozier has not regarded
the $1500 bond issued to the Gallatin Turn
pike Company, and has failed repeatedly to
report the same to the Legislature. For years
he paid to the individual holder the annual
interest accruing on this $1500 and yet did
not find out that it was still outstanding as a
State liability. By fruch errors he has been
led to report the outstanding debt of the
State invariably less than it is, and as to the
accruing interest it was compli""""1 im the
r.-thi cirorof counting commissions as in
terest. These errors have run through all his
reports to the Legislature, and ten minutes
examination of his books will plainly disclose
them to any one curious enough to look. Mr.
Lutt roll's report is similarly erroneous his
interest account was more so, for he calculated
the interest on all the State bonds at 6 per
cent., in the face of the fact that $1,949,440
of them draw but 5 percent, and $239,166 66
but five and a quarter per cent.; making an
error ot $JI,Z0j 14 ror one year. Uy the
free banking law, passed in 1852, the circula
tion of the free banks ie required to be couu
tersigned, numbered and registered by the
Comptroller in proper books to be provided
and kept in Lis office; yet the Committee find
great omissions of this duty in connection
with several of the free banks. They fiud
as stated in the report that "there has been
no registration at all of notes of the River
Bank, the Bauk of the Union, or of Buck's
Bank; and tliey find that the registration of
the notes of the Bank of Trenton has been so
iiuicrfect that nothing at all can be told from
the books as to the amount registered, us
there is uo registration of the letters and size
of the bills. Ami they find likewise that the
notes of the Bauk of Knoxville Lave not been
registert d iu full." Mr. Crozier resigned his
office to take effect January 24, 1k56, and the
bust entry of date iu the circulation book of
the Bauk of Knoxville is January 1st, 1854,
a chasm of two years. Are uot these sufll
cieut evidences that the books of the Comp
troller's office have not been properly kept?
Yet we are prepared to point to other evi
dences if need be. Mr. Crozier says we are
totally wrong in the statement that the in
terest paid on State bonds within the eight
years from 1850 to 1857, inclusive, amounts
to $1,715,204 08; and that the interest falling
due within that time was but $1,666,821 00;
apparent overplus $48,383 08. Our state-
meut of interest paid is necessarily taken from
the Comptroller's books just as the books
show it, (except we deduct commissions at the
end of the calculation), and our statement of
interest due is made upon a careful calcula
tion of the interest accruing upon the out
standing bonds. We affirm the calculation is
correct. If we bad been guided by th
Comptroller's books, and retained and charg
ed commissions, it would have swelled the
deficit to $ .
A to the coupon account, Mr. Crozier sa s
there are coupous not in the books w hich the
Committee have never seen. The facta are
simply these: The Committee compared and
cancelled, the coupons returned by . the R. R.
Companies; aUo compared the coupons paid ia
Philadelphia and New York with the bank
account this great mass or bulk of coupons
we cancelled but there were a few very small
packages presented to us which had been paid
by the bank in Naebville, aud which had been
charged and not paid at the Treasury, which
we did not cancel because we locked upon
them as vouchers of the bank. The number
of coupons in the small packages we knew,
as the same was marked thereon. We were of
necesity cotiirnlL d to ccoaut the coupous, a
a reference to Tables "E' and annual lute rest
accounts will show.
We did not charge, as Mr. Crozier st ems to
intimate, that the $48,383 08, a a mil purloin
ed, nor have we ever said that Mr. Cruzlrr
took either bonds or coupons. As to the 73
bonds Le alludes to, be very well knows (bat
the Committee whlfo showing the alamrdity
of Mr. Spcnce'a claim to 123 bonds, stab d, la
substance, that if he bad lost them, 75 of the
Dumber were lost wbileMr. Crozier. -was
Comptroller.but that be bad not, in the opinion
of the Committee, lost any bonds at alL . ..As
to the coupons, the Committee expressly said J
they "find it a matter of impossibility to re
port the precise amount of interest paid upon
coupon bonds'" for the reasons then fully set
.Out Among ethers they " say that tbe""hold
ers of coupons often delay their presentation
for payment for one or two years which causes
the interest account , io vary- much yearly."
But we were satisfied nevertheless 'that coup
ons had been purloined by some one,presentcd
again to tbe Comptroller and again paid by
him." The testimony was conclusive that
Mr. Mosby, who had acted as deputy Comp
troller both under Mr. Crozier and Mr. Lut-
trell, had been dealing in coupons, selling
them ls)th in Nashville and New York. We
find also that on the 1st of April, 1856. Comp
troller Luttrell, issued warrant number 5.555
for $90 interest on Capitol bonds direct to
Thomas F. Mosby, and there is no power of
attorney or order filed with the warrant, ac
cording to the custom of the office, showing
that he received the interest as Agent. Again,
on the 25th of October, 1856, by warrant No.
6,171, Mosby recMved $255 , inst. Capitol
bonds, and on the 10th of January, 1857, on
warrant No. 6.3C9 be received on renewed
bonds, $341.25, and there is nothing with
these warrants showinc that he (Mosby) was
acting as the Agent of any other persons.
Each of these warrants is signed by Mr.
Luttrell. If any person desires to satisfy
himself the warrants can be seen in the Trea
surer's office by reference to the above num
bers. Mr. Luttrell told the Committee be was
satisfied Mr. Mosby had abstracted coupons,
but be stated at the time he believed they
were taken from the boxes of the Free Banks.
The coupons after being paid and not cancel
led had been loosely kept in a cigar box in the
office. We leave the public to draw their own
inference from these facts. In regard to the
over-payment of interest, we feel constrained
to say that even if the interest due exceeded
interest paiil, we would still be compelled,
from the fact that many bona-Jule holders of
coupons due in oneyear may not present them
for payment until the next year, to entertain
the opinion that a large amount of coupons
have been abstracted or counterfeited and
presented for payment; and if the Comptrol
ler had properly cancelled aud pasted the
coupons on books opposite the corresponding
numbers this could not have occurred.
The proof was clear, even by Mosby's own
confessions, that he had abstracted some of
the bond belonging to Free Banks and applied
them to his own use. It was proven before
the Committee by the statement of Mr.
Mosby and the admission of Mr. Crozier. that
after Mr. Mosby 's acknowledgement that he
had taken the bonds, Mr. Crozier had an in
terview with him aud advised him "it would
be best for him to leave." It was admitted in
evidence by Mr. Crozier that he (Crozier,)
while acting as Comptroller bought in part
nership with Mr. Dortch, a Free Bank, the
Traders' Bank. While the Free Banking law
does not prohibit the Comptroller from being
interested in .Free Banks yet it arrested the
attention of the Committee as improper that
a public officer intrusted with the State's in
terests in such large transactions with Free
Banks should himself become a Free Banker.
The day before the Committee adjourned Mr.
Luttrell stated that Mr. Crozier had also
been interested while Comptroller in the
Bank of Paris. As to the cases in which bonds
that had been deposited had been taken out
by Mr. Crozier and Mr. Luttrell and others
substituted ia their place, the Committee
6imply gave the facts as proved by Mr. C. W.
Jackson, neither charging nor intimating that
any improper motive had led to it, though
in each case it was done without the consent
and against the wishes of the officers of the
Bank of Middle Tennessee. In all things
they forebore from doing more thau was
necessary to give a fair reflux ot the testi
mony adduced. If the Comptroller's books
have been so improperly kept that it was im
possible fully to comprehend the great diffi
culties which have growu up between the
Treasury and Free Banks, surely the Com
mittee ought not to be blamed for'fi"a!y
aii-oiosiiij tho Vict. We were really ol
opinion that Mr. Crozier seemed more anx
ious to overreach us than any other person;
but we did not state this fact. He seemed
quite anxious to place the whole matter upon
the State Bank. He was invit h1 to be present
and assist in the interest account, but he
declined he certainly had every opportunity
to bring any point he chose to tho attention'
of the Committee, as he was before us as the
attorney of Mr. Spence. If the evidence dis
closes that his sympathies and advice were
given actively to thosj who were implicated,
ought we to le censured for such disclosures?
We let his advice to his late deputy, after he
had confessed, speak for itself. We made but
a brief allusion to his connection with the Free
Bank. In short, npon all the facts, we are
willing that the public shall make up its
mind ujon the testimony when it is published.
And while we think Mr. Crozier has been
unnecessarily harsh in his attack upon the Com
mittee, we trust that he will ultimately be
satisfied that the Committee are not "totally
tin acquainted with the business," and that he
will wait till the testimony is published
before he attempts to place his case fully
before the public.

A Large Vessel Interferes with the
The following from the Loudon Timet de
scribes the meeting of one of our Liverpool
fleet with the telegraph squadron. Our men
were bound to see all that was to le seen, and
bad not tbe slightest respect for English gun
powder. The Chieftain sailed lrom Montreal
with a load of 74,000 Detroit staves, which
were taken down to ber by tbe Star of the
North, in May List:
During the afternoon an American tbree
masted schooner, which afterward proved to
be tbe Chieftain, was seen standing from the
eastward toward us. No notice was taken of
her at flint, but when she was within about
half a mile ot the Agamemnon she altered
her course and bore right down across our
bows. A collision, which might prove fatal
to the cable, now seemed Inevitable, or could
only be avoided by tbe equally h -zardous ex
pedient of altering tbe Agamemnon's course.
The Valorous steamed ahead and fired a gun
for her to hears to, which, as she did not ap
pear to take much notice of, was qui ckly fol
lowed by another from the iows of the Aga
mcmnou aud a second aud third from the
Valorous; I sit still the vessel held her course,
and, as the only recourse left to avoid a col
lision, the course of the Agamemnon was
altered just In tune to pas ithin a few yards
of ber. It was evident that our proceeding
wer a source of the greatest poMiibl atou
Ishmeot to them, for all ber cr-w crowded
upon tuer d.-ck and rigging. At length they

Professor Whelan, late Principal of the
Missouri Blind Asylum, in St. Louis, is well
and favorably known to our citizens generally,
ind to those of Philadelphia, Pa, and Nash
ville, Teno. He is almost i wholly blind, yet
has habituated himself to traverse the streets
without serious inconvenience. Having re
signed tbe position he bad honorably filled at
the Asylum," and concluded his business ar
rangements, be vesterday set about seeking
a steamer on wbfch to despatch his effects to
Pittsburgh rwfc for Philadelphia. It. is to
be regretb-d that, unused to the active world
and deprived of sight, tbe worthy gentleman's
habit of self-reliance should have led him,
alone and on such ran errand. 'to, meet the
perils of the levee. : At about 3 P. it, while
passing near tbe foot of Pine street, be was
courteously addressed ..by a stranger, - who,
after a slight conversation offered bis arm to
conduct him across the street, It was accep
ted, and on learning, that his polite street-
friend was named Miller, Mr. W, was further
delighted when the agreeable reminiscences
of Captain Miller of Nashville, suggested by
the ' name, were intensified by. this prompt
avowal of Miller, "That Captain Miller is my
father!" Mr. W. was captivated, and a long
and animated conversation followed, during
which the parties walked far, and Mr. W.,
trusted to bis friend to "keep the ran of the
streets." At 'about 5 o'clock, he inquired
where they were, and Miller appeared unable
to tell. Mr. W. asked a person who was pas
sing, and was told they were on i-ittcenth
street. He ; was slightly startled, and his
friend proposed to accompany him to tbe
Planters' House, where they would get sup
per, and meet Capiain Miller. 'But the friend
turned westward, which direction Mr. W
assured him was wrong, and they agreed to
wait and take a 'bus down Franklin avenue.
In the meantime they entered Carr Place,
passed some twenty steps from the gate, and
sat down. Presently, Mr. AV. found himself
caught, gagged, and held fasti : He struggled
desperately, and, on the instant, -supposing
that a Ite ttul tttinkt another person bad
attacked bim. he tried to call on Miller to
help Lim. But he could not speak, and when
his exertions to free himself encouraged the
Lope of success, be was struck very violently
upon the forehead and temporarily stunned.
On recovering, he found himself apparently
alone, all his pockets but one turned outward,
and himself poorer by $250. The money was
iu bills of many varieties, and the fact of his
possessing it, had been drawn from him during
the conversational stroll. Tweuty dollars
was left bim, iu a vest pocket. This was
attributed to tbe casualty that be bad taken
a pin-cushion from thut pocket in Miller's
presence. The villain was probably led to
judge that no money was in that pocket. No
clue remains by which to identify these in
famous scamps, for it is-'fleeined certain there
were two or three of them. S". Louit Dem
ocrat, Sept. 1st
It is common to hear people exclaim ad
miringly, '"It looks like something better!
Every body would think it an expensive article!
You are fortunate!'
What is implied in this? That everybody
wishes to seem letter than he is, and to Lave
his possessions seem more valuable than they
are. The ladies (bless them!) are specially
given to this habit, in reference to articles of
dress. They have, perhaps, unconsciously
adapted the form of expression used by the
merchants who sell the goods. When one of
these shows a calico, he assures the buyer
that it looks like delaine; and a gingham
would certainly be mistaken for silk, the style
is so like! bo, innumerable varieties ot
goods, ottered cheap, they assure customers,
appear in every respwtjust like the costly
articles they were made to simulate. None
would suspect the cotton and wool was not
all wool, that the satin was not all of silk.
that the velvet was not of the richest quality!
This striving to seem belter than one is, to
appear in pecuniary circumstances above the
real condition, is the bane of social life.
Occasionally we meet one having moral cour
age enough to lw true. When we do see one
without a wish to make silk look like satin,
we trust him fully. Such people find it easy
and pleasant to appear as they are; and they
enjoy life and the esteem of their acquain
tances. Don't try to make silk appear satin.
Let wool be wool. Let cotton look like cotton.
This effort to cheat the eyes contracts the
mind and degrades the soul. God made the
cotton. It is nicely adapted for service, and
while clothes you, houor it, and not feel
ashamed of its beautiful textures. If you can
receive honor from the style or expeuse of a
garment, we pity your soul or its substitute.
Regard fitness in your garments, as in all
else, and think no more about it. The true
uro honored, as being in consonance w ith law;

Trials of the Sawyer Cannon.
Special Dupaick to the Xem fork Timet.
Washtvow Ti..sQay,Aug. l'o.
ruts oecretary of War has ordered a series
of experiments, with the new rifle cannon of
Sylvanus sawyer, of r ltcuburg. Mass., to be
made under the direction of the Ordnance De
partment, and the results, so far as reported,
are entirely successful. It is the unanimous
opinion of the Ordnance efficers that this new
gun stands without a rival. At the distance
of one mile, the body ot an ordinary size tree
would not be missed once in fifty times. so ex
act are its line shots. Mr. Sawyer superin
teuds the firing in person, and in seventeen
shots, at a distance of one mile, the furthest
was not over three feet from the center. Such
shooting was never known before, and these
experiments show that a new era in gunuery
has dawned upon us.
The Sawyer cannon has a groove like the
rifle, which forms a circle in twenty feet The
gun now leiug tested is a small one, carrying
only about a six pound ball, and hits been
fir-M over two hmulred times without tbe
slightest injury. It is cast of the Aler iron
of Boston, now considered the finest gun
metal in the world. Tbe ball is shaped like
the Minle-rifle ball, and is fill'"d with powder,
which explodes after striking and entering
an object. The great discovery ot Mr. Sawyer
Las beeu iu adapting the cannon ball to a
groove gun. To effect this the iron ball is
tirst tinned, and theu covered with a coaling
of lead near a quarter of an inch thick, with
leaden ridges on the surface fitting exactly the
grooves of the bore. The official report on
these exjieriments will place this new cannon
just as far above the Dahlgreen and oiher
guns now kuown to the world, as the Minie
rifle is aliove the old musket, nor do I make
this prediction without knowing what 1 am

most Canada. About eight mouths ago, a
couple of slaves mada their escape from Mr.
William R. Crean, of Bourbon county, Ken

Canada. This was the more easily effected
as Mr. Crean made no effort to pursue them,
concluding that they were scarcely worth

letter'from Toronto, in which he was inform
ed that if he would transmit them sufficient
money to bear their expenses they would re
turn to "Old Kenluck" and r servitude.
Upon receipt of the letter, Mr. Crean sui ted

Healthy and Fertile Country,

lubrious climute, aud ceuerous, liberal, enlightened
and relineJ society. There is wanted but one further
feiture to make this t'e most commanding point on
the great "Father of Waters." This was uiliut--rupt-ed
communication with the interior of tho aljaceut
Slates, to accommodate internal commerce and facili
tate the interchange of commodities. That want is
now fully met by tho e;-taulihhed system of
which has fixed Kentucky City as thi center of a net
work of railroads stretching out and affording con

the cities and hikes of the North and K .st, and rami
