Lakes aud rivers of the west, by the construc
tion of harbors on the lakes and the removal of
obstructions from the rivers, is among the most

It op pears that not only every whig paper in
the State, but every county convention, so far

the whigs throughout the Southern, South-western
and Western States. Nearly every Whig
newspaper in Virginia has spoken out for lain,

of the Tennessee Whig State Convention. On

whose name is at the head of this paragraph.

that there is not a man in Missouri who can open

er n notiofi-to contractors, falling for bids for
laying down and fastening the Plank on th
Burlington nnd Warren Plank Road. ' ;
Not fvishing to bid for' a" contract' myself, I
Would suggest for liie consideration of thoc'(r
tcrcstcd, the following plan for fastening lhe
whole structure to tho grade : '
' After tho grade is raised to to proper height
and nettled, lay down stringers lengthwise of
tho road about four fe4 5i"l half , apart, and
bedded in the earth j the 'stringers 3 iotlics thick
and from 8 to 12 inches wide, to lay down flat
ways, aniilf wniiiy-eded, all the better; lay
tho broad side down so llmt the weight of eurtfi
on it will hold itj esjir,e. mftd vimm the joint
aro broke with the stringers, place a plank
crosswise of the id uihW the stringers so that
they shall moot on it, ond fasten it wilh fire
inch spikes. . .
In addition to this, put through encli string
er and tic, a pin or spile of aboul 3 inches diutn
etcr, to bo drove three feet deep, with the top
sufficiently lar c that it cannot draw through ; let
this spilu be made small in the middle, to serve
as a wedge, with the large end down, then pack
thc earth isolid round it and roll it wtill and it is
ready to receive the plank, which should be
well fastened to those sills with. large spikes or
. r .1 it .11
pins. iay uie piann one, iooi irom mo lower
edcre of the grade and with -!ope one urtO.m
hail inoi'ics,'iii'uie lcnglli of the. plank ; let the
grade si ths lower iid btcen with the top of
llic p'unk, and at tho upper end. of them raise
the grudi three inches hbovc them, so that the
end will alw'avi bo covered with earth. Let
the grade track bo kept rounding and higher
than the plank track. ...,
In this way I think a permanent road may be
secured, though perhaps others more experi
enced nuy suggest a better plan.
