Iowa and Wisconsin have a large and growing
trade. Hie larger portion of this has heretofore
been with the Southj but increasing facilities for
transportation North and East, together with the
impediments in the Rapids, threaten to divert it
from its natural direction. A railroad running
through Northern Missouri, parallel with the
river, and penetrating Iowa through Keokuk,
would avoid the difficulty in the Rnpids; accom
mod.de Northern Missouri, Iowa and Wiscon
sin with a choice of markets; and would not be,
as the Ft. Charles project is, liable to the objec
tion of arousing the jealousy and opposition of
Burlington, Keokuk, 'and' those other most
populous portions ' of Iowa lying on the
river bank. We presume that few now think
seriously of improving the Rapids by blowing
out the rocks. This would require years of la
bor and an" outlay of millions of dollars. Yet
they are a most serious commercial obstacle.
Freight from St. Louis to Nauvoo is 15 cents a
hundred when boats can pass over the Rapids;
it is 75 cents a hundred when they cannot. A
railroad is proposed around the Rnpids, on the
Illinois side, from Rockfurd down to Warsaw,
live movements in its favor, will make friends
in Iowa for our Railroad
The St. Louis people will favor a railroad
anywhore that will benefit them, injure whom
else it may; and so it contribute to the welfare
of ST. LOUIS, they would as soon see a Rail
road built in Illinois as in Missouri their pride
of State is swallowed up in theii higher pride
of city. Hence, ther libcrsllv nrotfVr id fn

move heaven and earth to make St. Louis the
terminus of the Hannibal and St. Joseph Rail

railroad built from their civ. extendins- the
whole distance, to the boundary line of Iowa;
but so it intersects the Hannibal and St. Joseph
Railroad, their present purpose will be accom
plished, and they will allow the remainder of
the project to slumber awhile, sefar as they are
concerned. If the back track should be the one
chosen, it is not probable that the road will be

above the line of the Hannibal and St. Joseph

the North Missouri Railroad, if built on the in
terior route; their most reliable dependence is
plankroads the farmer's road connecting
with the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad on
the South, and the river route, or Louisiana and

Last Monday night the Democracy had a
sermon preached to them by Jas. S. Green, an
exhortation followed from Col. Richmond, and
Wm. P. Harrison closed the meeting with a
benediction. At Wit these were the terms fa
cetiously given by the speakers themselves to
their several parts. Mr. Green, however, we
should judge from his misrepresentations, had
been called to preach by the wrong authority.
For instance he had a great deal to say about a
large appropriation to the Quarter-Master Gene
ral's Department, under Fillmore's adininistraJ
tion apparently quite oblivious of the fact that
the debts incurred during the Mexican War
had to be settled. He said a good deal about
Corwin neting as counsel, and being interested
in the Gardiner claim, ond deciding on it, as
Secretary. Now it happens that a Democratic
committee, appointed by the House, to invest
igate the matter, acquitted Mr. Corwin of all
blame. They reported the claim fraudulent,
but said there was no evidence that Mr. Corwin
knew, or could reasonably be supposed to know
t to be sn; that he sold out his interest before
he became Secretary of the Treasury, and not
only refused to act any further as counsel, but
even refused to consult with those employed to
prosecute the claim. Under these cireumstan-j
ces, Mr. Green's charco must be branded n
" ' COKSTTMAI. BLISS." , '
What a world of trouble those who urvei

Preachers of temperance do not look for warn
ing examples among moderate drinkers;hut they
point to the bloated, reeling drtinWd; he who
sleeps in tho gutter at niyht, and cannot tell to
day, where his crust of bread is to come from
to-morrow who is a reproach to hi relations;
a terror to his family; a fugitive from the post
given him by God in this life, a hustener to his
grave, flying to (he ' ills we know not of;" re
lentlessly, mercilessly pursued, in sight of his
last resting place, by serpents, an 1 by horrid
monsters in every shape, created and living in
his own fiery imagination imaginary, fancied
and unreal to all else to him a terrible reality.
Temperance men point to examples such as
these, ond say bewnrel bewaret! beware!!!

noon, gets drunk and "cuts up" considerably.
Sometimes he gathers the baby and goes stagger

hill, to the great dismay of his wife. Having
amused himself in this manner til! tired, he lays
down the child, and "lams" its mama; and if the
unwashed, tow-hcaded boarder, who stands by
with his hands in his pockets, offers to interfere
he "lums" him too. Witlun a few days past,
his amusements of this sort have been charming

from the clothes line, and tearing them into rib

Of the City Election, held on Monday:'
For the Journal.
Mr. Editob : I observe that your paper, and
the Messenger of this city, have made a call up
on the citizens to hold a meeting this evening,
to appoint delegates to the St. Charles Conven
tion. This Convention, you are aware, is to
promote the construction of a road from St.
Louis, via. St. Charles, to the northern bound
ory of this State ; and thence, by the preten
tions of its St. Louis advocates, to Dubuque
and lobe baptised into the name and scheme of
the great route from Minnesota to New Orleans.
Now, independant of the "humbuggery" of
the scheme, you and the country ought to know
that, for two substantial reasons, this road, if
ever, cannot be built in the time of the pres
ent generation. First, the stock of no such
road can be remunerative : for, as is well
known to tho Pacific Railroad Company, no
crossing, by bridge, can ever bo made over the
Missouri river, and this impediment will des
troy the value of its stock, by whomsoever ta
ken. But, secondly, we may not expect anoth-
1 er grant of lands to this State, for these purpo-
2jses and, with the present engagements of the
5tate, souer-uiiiu'cu pcrscr.s C2!?nn. nnr will

Tun NronoKuuso Case. On Thursday,
the case of William Gardner, charged with kil
ling tho slave d William Redman, came up foi
examination before Justice Sharp, of P.rcmen.
A only three or four witnesses were exam
ined, we prefer to give the statement made by
Mr. Gardner himself, and reduced to writing.
Tho statement is corroborated in all its particu
lars by the only witness cognizant of tho facts.
It is as follows :
On the 21st of October, 1852, between nine
and ten o'clock, I went to the north end of my
porch ; w hile there, I heard a horse shaking
himself, which seemed to be in the northern
left the porch and went through the yard g:ite,
through the lot at the extreme northern part,
and found a horse tied to the plank fence, with
a saddle, bridle and martingales on him ; from
the looks of the horse and trappings, I believed
that some white man had rode him there. It
was so diirk I could nut tell the cOor of the
horse. I opened the gate find turned him into
the yard; the horse was in a foam of sweat ; I
staid on the eround for a few minutes : then I
got into an old barouche near where the horse
was hitched, for the purpose of ascertaining the
rider; the length of time I remained in the
barouche, I cannot say, but so.no time ; I went
totheh'iiisp and laid down with my clothes on.
I frequently rose and went out to see what was
there, when I he.ird tho d,iT ' k' lnr tl, )I,:.,1

these cai s will carry more passengers than all
the omnibuses. It is proposed to lay down a
grooved ril that will not interfere with curri

the rate of 6 3-4 miles per hour on the Baltimore
and Ohio Railroad, and it is contended that tbs
great amount of load which ahorse can draw on

over our paved streets, should at once lead ev

Science, progress and reason, appear to be on
the side of those who advocate the railroad, but
the only arguments which can safely be applied,
are those of facts. If a railroad is more dangr.
ous, does not look well to the eye, (this is for
the taste of the promcnaders) und is more in
convenient for private onrricges, so as to prevent
them passing throui;h Broadway for business or
pleasure; in short, if the advantages of ihe rail,
road are less than the present omnibus system,
it would bo folly to build one; here lies the gist
of the whole question. Every person can see
that some reform is required to remove the ob.
structirn to the free crossing of the street; what
shall that reform be ? is the question; the o;ily
rational cue is the railroad. Scientific American.
