their country to override attachment to party.
While this is so the Union will last. . Built
firmly upon the affections of the people, the
gorgeous edifice will eontiaue-te- tower up be
fore all the world, splendid and Immovable.
Men of all parties, except the Northern and
Southern extremists, have seen Mr. Fillmore
mount ubove all narrow prejudices, and prove
himself by his works, the President of the whole

schemes to continue himself in power, with that
of our unworthy Governor, who is stumping it
through Hairs district, after that gentleman's
nice berth in Congress, when he ought to be

paying him. . . . , . ; , ,

promise, and his resolute enforcement of those
measures, when everything wore a most gloomy
and threatening aspect, demonstrate that he will
always be equal to any emergency.
We hope and believe he will be the nominee
of the National Convention. If nominated, he
will be elected. -

v It was originally intended, when the project
of building a plarJc road to New London was
first broached, to extend it into Audrain. A
cry large trade comes from that rich county to
this city, and it is important to the farmers along
what would be the best route for this road, that
it shoul d be built. We understand that such an
extension of 'the rood is ardently desired by the
people of Audrain, and we do hope they will
move effectively in the matter. A tax of five
per cent, would be amply sufficient. The coun
try is much of it prairie, level, and beautifully
adapted for a plank road. . Its whole cost is
thought by many persons, need not exceed two
hundred dollars per mile. At least twenty
miles or Uie road might be constructed without
plank, and a very good road made, by throwing
up lire dirt, in such a manner as to prevent the

22 The "sea serpent" has been captured at
last, if we way believe the statement of Charles
Seaberry, master of the whale ship Mononga
hela, of New Bedford, who publishes a letter,
in the New York Tribune, detailing the partic
ulars of the capture. It was in latitude 3 deg.,
10 min., south, and longitude 131 deg., 60 mm.,
west, on the I3lh of January. We give the
conclusion of his account:
' Eight P. M. a sadden lull: line taut. The
night was beautiful, the sky clear, wind scarce
ly a breath, and sea rapidly falling.
Cio eye was closed in tne ship: we were spec
ulating on our prey. It was evident he was on
the bottom. He staid down a long time; but on
reflection I considered that was ha forle that
he was at home there. . At four A. M of the
1 1th, sixteen hours after he - went down, the
line began to slack. I had it taken to the wind
lass, when we got nearly two lines "hand over
head," then there cam a strain again. This
strain continuing, I told every body to bear a
hand and get breakfast, and. just before we
were through, the cook cried out, "Here he is."
In n time, all were on deck, and sure enough
he had risen; but all that was visible was a
bunch, apparently the bight of the Snake,
where he hnd been fastened to. I lowered
three boats, and we lanced the body repeatedly
without ellcitinsr anv siirn of life.''
It was a male; the length, 103 feet seven
inches; nineteen feet one inch around the neck;
twenty-four feet fix iswiis! earjmid the shoul
ders and the largest part of the body, which
appeared somewhat distended, forty-nine feet
eleven inches. The head was long and flat,
with ridges ; the bones of the lower iaw sepa
rate ; the tongue hod its end like the head of a
heart. The tail ran nearly to a point, on the
end of which was a flat, firm cartillage. The
back was black, turning brown on the sides,
then yellow, and on the centre of its belly a
narrow white streak two-thirds of its length ;
there was also scattered over the body dark
spots. On examining the skin, we found, to
our surprise, that the body was covered with
blubber like that on the whale, but it was
only four inches thick. - The oil was clear as
water, and burned nearly as fast as spirits of
For the Journal and Union.
' Hamnibal, Mo., March 6lh, 1852.
I do regret exceedingly that the Rev. Mr. Bennett
has Dot had the generosity to furnish our citizens with
that splendid display of pulpit eloquence, and exposi
tion of M Campbellism " with which he regaled his
hearers a few weeks since. Ai a minuter of the gos
pel, sir, should be refuse to enlighten bis fellow man
whenever called on to do so? He said on that occa
sion, that a modem Doctor from Jerico bad recently
been teaching in this city, that baptism alone was suf
ficient for the salvation of sinners, and furthermore,
the same Dr. had condemned a host of learned pious
men, of sacred memory, to' Hell, "all, forsooth," be
cause they bad never been plunged, head and heels, be
neath the yielding wave, and that in bis, the Rev. Mr.
Bennett's, estimation, this modern Doctor ought to in
voke the aid of the Witch of Endor, or a motley set of
monks, to snatch them from the trfal burnings.
Now, sir, truth fears no investigation, and if the Rev.
Mr. B. could substantiate these assertions, ought he
not, for the good of this community to do so, by all
means? And when the modem Doctor noxt visits our
city, his proselytes will be scarce; but fortunately for
that Doctor, many of our citizens have heard his teach
ings, and I leave the matter with them to decide whelh
er be has justice done him or not.

Fer the Jo urnal.
From an abstract of the report of the
Census of the United States for 1850, 1 have had the
curiosity to make and calculate the following extract8
of the statistics of Missouri.
As these show the condition of the State at that time,
and from it an approximation of its present condition
may be inferred, I submit it to your disposal. The
question has oltea been proposed, "What proportion
do the unproved and occupied lands in this State bear
to the unimproved aod unoccupied lands?" The cal
culations, hare, show as near the answer as can be ar
rived at, and should, I think, suggest the propriety of
the anneal collection by the State, of many interesting
and useful statistics, through her revenue officers.
The area of the State in square miles is 67,380.
The population in 1830, was 632,043.
Population to the square mile, 10 and a small fraction.
Improved lands, 8,9 1)423 acres, being 40 acres to the
square mile or section, or about ten acres to the quar
ter section of 160 acres one sixteenth of the whole,
vis: To each 160 acres, 10 aires improved, and 150
acres not improved.
The proportion of Improved land is four (4) acres
to the soul. But supposing each family to consist of
six souls, the beads of families Would be 1 13,674, a ad
the average cultivation or improvement would be 34
acres to each. One third of these being able to work,
would give 8 acres to each hand, or laborer. This is a
small cultivation in a prairie country, and shows that
either too large a portion of the population are engaged
in commerce and manufaeturine; that many era lineer-

in lierce conllict debate m
which many a polished shaft has been shivered,
but by which a brighter page has been added to
the political history of our country. Such, sir,
was the debate without referring to others
in the other end of this Capitol in tne year 1830,
upon the celebrated resolutions of Mr. Foot.
But while this subject has been thus discussed,
while men and statesmen have differed upon the
best disposition which should be made of these
lands, I believe there has been a very general
concurrence of sentiment among men of all par
ties, and from every section of the nation, in re
gard to this policy of appropriating or granting
tne public lands for works of internal improve
ment, in opening roads and cutting canals through
the public domain.
I here beg leave, before passing to the merits '
of this bill, to state, that though my own State,
Missouri, has been somewhat tardy in the com
mencement of these great works of internal im
provement, she has never surrounded herself
with embarrassments and difficulties by enga
ging in wild schemes of internal improvement.
07(3 08 ! And she does not now come to ask as a charity
07 08 your aid in the construction of a work of local
05' 06 interest : but she comes to vou with a conscious-
Si 2&($2 50 ' ncss just'c0 f ',er claim for a great na
$1 5(Xii$3 00 tional work, in which every section of the na-
60 65 tion is interested. She comes to you and asks
25f$ 33 that that justice which you have meted out to
,8 others, may be awarded to her.
37 5J Mr. Speakerthis bill, which I presume has
70(a) 80 ; been laid upon the table of every member of the
5lKg 624 1 House, proposes a grant of lands to two roads
$ within e mit of the State of Missouri. One
15'$ f these roads commences at the city of Hanni-
07(eS 071 bal, upon the Mississippi river, about one hun-
06 08 dred and thirty miles above the great city of St.
sn'a 25 Loui, and near to tn eity ot Qaincy, in the
$1 25(f$l 50 i State c' llinos From that point the road has
05($ 06 1 oee surveyed to the city of St. Joseph, upon
40'S i ! the Missouri river, about five hundred, or five
l W . hundred and fifty miles above St. Louis. It will
$3 503 75 i!0 8een fro,n tllis statement, that this road is
06'(j) 07 i '"tended to connect the upper waters of the
03 j Missouri river with the better navigable stream
05(3 051 1 of the upper Mississippi. This road, by actual
2lrl I urvey "pon a straight line, it one hundred and
i..ciiijr-:igiit iiinca in lungiu, mil il may De
found, upon the location of the road, to be about
two hundred miles in length. It will be found,
further, if gentlemen will take the trouble to
refer to the map of the United States, that thia
road is upon the parallel of latitude which cm
braces the capitals of e jme of the States east cf
Missouri. It is near the latitude of Spring
field, Indianapolis, Columbus, and of Philadel
phia ; and by the continuation of the road from
the city of Quincy, which I .understand is alrea
dy in process of construction, this road will
connect with the rood at Columbus, in the State
of Ohio, thence connecting with the road to
Pittsburgh, thence with the road to Cleveland,
and thence on to the great city of New York.
The other road commences at the city of St.
Louis, a point one hundred and thirty- snilee
south from the beginning point of the Hannibal
road. It will be found hv cenllempn wrin will

veiea in Uie West know how important is that
connection with the Eastern States. I under
stand that it is in contemplation to construct e
road from Parkersburg to Cincinnati. Thia
road will be, as the St. Louis road is, upon the
parallel of Parkersburg and Baltimore, and
connects with the great railroad which termi
nates ai this capital. . The other end of the road
terminates at the western boundary line of the.
State of Missouri. o
I beg leave, Mr. Speaker, to ask the atten
tion of the Houm -4 ein5S&i.i jn
connection with tide grant. We do not ask it
for roads which have never been commenced
ror roads which are, barely incorporated, and
whose existence can only be known by the act
of incorporation. But we ask it for roads wliich
have beea commenced roads whioh hsve eapJ,
tals of million of dollars, with whkk to begirt
the work, and raid which u hope, by the aid
of this Government, to be able te complete in
