The Messenger suggests that there be a meet
' ing of our citizens this evening at the City Hall
for the purpose of appointing delegates to the
ot. Uiarles and St. Louis Railroad Conventions.
Th former is to be held on the 10th of this
'month, to deliberate on the project of building
.railroad from St. Charles to the Northern
. boundary of the State.' Let delegates be ap
pointed who are prepared to attend the conven
tion in a spirit of liberality, and willing to go
for that route which shall appear calculated to
. Dcneut the largest number and greatest variety
of interests, or which will acoomplish the most

ItOHTH KISS0VE.I RAILEUAD,
Iowa and Wisconsin have a large and growing
trade. The larger portion of this has heretofore
been with the South; but increasing facilities for
transportation North and Eastogcther with the
impediments in the Rapids, threaten to divert it
from its natural direction. A railroad running
through Northern Missouri, parullcl with the
river, and penetrating Iowa through Keokuk,
would avoid the difficulty in the Rapids; accom
modate Northern Missouri, Iowa and Wiscon
sin with a clioioo of markets; and would not be,
as the St. 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 Nauroo is 15 cents a
hundred when boats can pass over the Rapids;
it is 75 cents a hundred when they csnnot. A
railroad is proposed around the Rapids, on the
Illini side, from Rockfyrddowo to Warsaw,
live movements 111 its favor, Sv ill mate frien.!
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 their higher pride
of city. Hence, they liberally proifer aid to
the Kockford and Warsaw Railroad, while they
move heaven and earth to make St. Louis the
terminus of the Hannibal and St. Joseph Rail
road. They would doubtless be glad to see
railroad built from their city, extending the
wuoln 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, se fur as they are
concerned. If the back track should be the one
chosen, it is not probable that the road will be
built beyond the point of intersection with the
Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad for a good
many years to come perhaps never. This is
our answer to th&Bloomington Republican's ar
gument that the mtenor ought to be accommo
dated with Railroads. In other words, counties
above the line of the Hannibal and St. Joseph
Railroad, are not likely ever to be benefitted by
the North Mis souri Railroad, if built on the in
terior rotiio, inch" 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
Minnesota road on the East.

Last Monday night the Democracy had a
sermon preached fo them by Jas. S. Green, an
exhortation followed from Col. Richmond, and
Wm. P. Harrison closed the meeting with a
benediction. At least 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 UTong 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 administra-f
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 acting as counsel, and being interested
in the Gardiner claim, and deciding on it, as
Secretary. Now it happens that a Democratic
committee, appoiuted 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
it to be so; 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 circumstan
ccs, Mr. Green's charge must be branded as

For the Journal.
Ma. Eoitob : I observe that your paper, and
the Msstnger of this city, have made a call up
on the citizens to hold a meeting this evening,
fo 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
ary of this State ; and thence, by the preten
tions of its St. Louis advocates, to Dubuque
and to be baptised into the name and scheme of
the great route from Minnesota to New Orleans.
iNow, independunt of the "Jiumbuggcry" 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 the 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 mav not exnpnt nnnth.

The Railroads which have been constructed
in New York city, have not, as yet, relieved the
principal stm Broadway. It is almost im
possible for pedestrians to cross Broadway be
low the Park during any time of tho day be
tween 7 A. m. and 8 p. M. ' Fciraflcs are in dan
ger of losing their lives while crossing; Unj
have to run for life or death. It has been cal
culated that fM) omnibuses pass a singl point
in Broadway evcrv hour, or more than tight
every minute. It is easy to see from this that
it is ulmost impossible for prrsons torossfrom
one side of tho street to the other. - To relieve
(he street, it is proposed to buihT a railroad with
a triple track, each 4 feet wide, and to employ
120 cars, so as to despatch one every niinuta
each way, or 60 an hour; and it is said that
these cais will carry more passengers than all
the omnibuses. It is proposed to lay down a
grooved rail that will not interfere with carri
ages. A single horse has drawn thirty tons at
the rate of 6 3-4 miles per hour on the Baltimore
and Ohio Railroad, and it is oonlended that the
great amount of load which a horse can draw on
a railroad, in comparison with what it can draw
over our paved streets, should at once lead ev

railroad for passengers, in preference to the

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 danger
ous, does not look well to the eye, (this is for
tie taste 01 tlie promcnaders) and is more in
touvcr.icnt for private ferriages, so as to prevent
them passing llirouijli Ilroadway for business or
pleasure; in short, if the advantages of the rail,
road are less than the present omnibus system,
it would bo folly to build one; here lies the git
of the whole question. Kvery person can see
that some reform is required to remove the ob
struo'.ion to the free crossing of the street; what
