For tht Hannibal Journal.
For the benefit of those who, like myself,
travel but little, and are consequently ignorant
of the great improvements which have taken
place lately, especially in our large cities, I pro
pose to relate the following incident.
During a recent trip, I did myself the honor
te secure a room at the far-famed "Planter's
.House," in the city of St. Louis.
Desiring to inquire for a friend, whom I ex
pected to meet at this house, I stepped into
the apartment in which the Proprietor or his
deputy is commonly to be found, and seeing
several Gentlemen, who, I supposed were prob.
ably the Proprietors, I inquired of one, if "the
Bar Keeper" was in?
- The man gave me a scrutinizing glance, ar.d,
pointing to the floor beneath uur feet, indignant
ly replied "I tuppote the Bar Keeper it below
then, sir If you mean the Clebk, he will be
in the errici. alter while."
Of course, I did not interrogate the gentleman
further; but waited patiently for the cli nit.
Musing, meantime, upon the criminal ignor
ance and presumption which prompted me to
perpetrate such a gross violation of Fashionable
metropolitan hotel technology, as to substitute
Bar Kttper and Bar Room for Clxbk. and or
ricr. Now, our best Hotels in Hannibal have each
a room which is culled "the liar Room" and the
- polite and accommodating dignitary who pre
sides therein, is usually denominated "the Bar
Keeper" Those rooms are kept and those offi
cials demean themselves, in a manner which is
agreeable to the most respectable travelers, and
honorable to the proprietors, but what there is
associated with the "Bar Room" of the Planter'
Jloutt which should construe an inquiry for 'the
Bar Keeper' into an insult ; or justify an inde
torout respontt, to what was intended to be a
civil question, I am at a loss to divine. Of one
thing I am certain, I do not intend, voluntarily
to subject myself to a repetition of the indigni
tyand I would advise my friends to be upon
their Fa and Q's, and endeavor to be posted up
in Hotel nomenclature before they conclude
to 'put up' at the "Planter's House.'

SXKI.DAKEn REO.IESTKD TO RESIGN
At seven o'clock, last night, every ave
nue leading to the Mechanics' Institute was
thronged by the populace, and in a half
hour the capacious area of Greenwood
Hall was filled to its utmost capacity by a
r..Qn,..l,l -,1 ,.. k... i,:i.i :.i:
nunl concourse of citizens, who had assem
, ' ""VT"
bled, on a short notice, to express their
feeling at the course pursued by Mayor
Snelbaker, on Sunday morning last, in pre
venting Mr. Jvn ll.j nd, the street preacher,
from speaking in Fifth street Market Space.
Mr. J. b. Weathei by was elected Presi
dent, and Dr. II. S. Newton, Dr. A. Whip
ple, Mr. John Whetstone, and Mr. John
Forbus, Vice Presidents. George Stack,
house and A. W. Armstrong were appoint
On motion, the following gentlemen
were appointed a Committee to draft reso
lutions expressive of the sense of meeting:
John S. Nixon, O. Aldrich, Dr. Armstrong,
Nathaniel Barllet, and S. B. W. McLean.
In the absence of the committee, Andy
Giflin, Esq., ex-president of the late City
Council, being loudly called for, took the
stand. He said that he had not come to
the meeting to make a speech, but with the
same feeling that filled the breast of every
one present, a leelmg of deep indignation.
tv lien me Liberty oi tne rress or ot speecit
is trampled on a free people should arise.
It was for thin sacred principle that our
forefathers bled and died, and we will nut
see it dishonored with impunity. What
bringt this immense concourse here? A
free American citizen has been put down
by the Pope of Home or his confedrates?
This is no new liimg; it was determined
on at Baltimore, a yearngo, by Catholic
Priests and Jesuits, and I warn you, fellow
citizens, against the machinations of that
party. I am no public speaker, but I fell
it a duty to give you my sentiments on
this question. I am opposed to Popery
and Jesuitism, and will ba while 1 live.
Mr. Giffin's remarks were frequently in
terrupted with vociferous cheering, and a
loud huzza when he closed, showed that
his sentiments were unanimously approved.
A call was next made lor Spooner, de
signed, no doubt, for the Judge, but he not
appearing, his brother, Thomas Spooner,
hardware merchant on Mam street, took
the rostrum. He said he might not be the
man called for, but having the tame name,
and being an American citizen, he would
resjond to" the call. The sacied right of
rree Speech had been invaded by our chief
municipal oflicer, and ho should be reques
ted to surrender his authority to the people,
from whom he received it. (Great cheer
ing.) He dwelt at somn length on the
rights of American citizens, in a truin oi
patriotic eloquence thut brought forth im
mense applause from the multitude, and
closed by urging Republicans, thut while
they claimed their own rights, to forbear en
croaching upon those of others.
Mr. Handy, late candidate for Prosecuting
Attorney in the Police Court, wus called out.
He said he had ci me up, as all had done, to
merely be an auditor. This is not the first time
my voice bus been raised on this or a kindred
topic. If there it unything an American citizen
holds more dear than another, it is free speech.
This is the first lime a man in this Republio ha
been officially sihrnced while spelling hi sen
timents. All political parties hold the right of
Free Speech as sacred. And who is this that
dares attack il? Not the Democratic party
though the Mayor was elected by its votes.
The attack is made by an agent,-who i acting
by an under influence which is taking him out of
the ranks. Hi present supporters arc chiefly
foreigners, whom we have takeu to our bosom,

and who would now inflict a deathly ating. We
have the right to assemble to discuss religious
or civil topics, and he who dares invade such
right, will be held responsible. Mr. Handy
am ue uiu not Know Air. Kirkland, the gentle
man upon whom this outrage was personally
committed, nor did he desire narticulnrlv to
know him, for it is the principle involved for
which we arc centending, and for which we
will ever war.
Rev. Mr. Treat! v. nastor of ilia Assnciat
Reformed church, on Sixth street. ( Presbvleri-
was iouuiy called lor ana vncilerously ap
plauded on taking the stand. He commenced
by remarking that he was placed in peculiar cir
cumstances; he had not expected to be called on.
otherwise he should probably have remained at
nome. uut being called out lie felt that he
would be recreant to his dutv as a minister of
the gospel and an American citizen if he held
i tongue. The right winch has been denied a
free citizen is a sacred principle of nature, and
was established in this country by our fathers.
You might as well emigrate to Austria as be
subservient to this newlv-exercised power.
The excitement that he witnessed he considered
had its origin in the recent city eleotion,and had
been fanned into a flame by circumstances sines
transpiring. Many f his audience, he thought,
lud not duly estimated the vast interests involved
in that election, or its result would have been
widely different. He was sure that the people
had they known Mr. Snclbnker as the man he
hud just proven himself to be, would have repu
diated him as a vile thing, civilly, socially and
politically. The question comes up shall we
sneak otr sentiments on all proper occasions, re
gardless of politico-religious assumptions cf
power, or shall we have them rammed down our
throats? He did not know anything about Mr.
Kirkland, and it was not important to know who
or what Mr. K. was, or where he came from; it
was suflicient to know that the liberties of the
people had been stabbed through him. This is
a Upas tree; if you do not cut it down now, it
win spread far and wide, and take deep hold.
Will you eradicate it? (a voice '-yes, we
will tear it up by the roots. ) That is the way
to do it, said the Rev. gentleman, but not by
1 lie clergy of the land ask a fair field and no
favor. Challenges were standing in various
journals of the land, but they were not accept
ed. Dr. Rice's proposition of a few weeks
sinco will not be accepted. Bishop Purcell
took one erroneous step in this matter, soma
years since, and lie will never take another.
Th- r.-..i..n i not one of nli-ion simnlv. but
or. civn rignis, wnicn as Americans we arc
boun I to maintain, not in physical force, I pray
ynu, but in peace. We have the right to speak,
and he who interferes is tlio riotous man, the
man who must be suppressed, and upon whom
must rest all the responsibility of resulting con
sequences. Sunday before last our Mavor looked
upon Air. Kirkland as a pigmy, but in one
short week he has grown to be a perfect
giant ! Wonderful man 1 Wonderful Mr.
Snelbaker! So he sent him a polite note
(to its King's English he would not refer
laughter), telling him he must not speak,
and the consequence you ail know.
Mr. Snelbaker had a great regard for the
Sabbat Ii, but the noise of half a dozen
juandsof music, and five thousand Catholics
marchiiic in the street on that day was not
sacrilege in his official eyes. Nay, but
those live thousand stalwart men were
projected in their doings by the whole po
lice force of the city. It amounted to this :
Provided you are heided by a Catholic
Bishop you have a right to march where
lyou please on Sunday, or any other day ;
but don t go to ucclaiming against Catho-1
lies in the market spaces, or you will be
pulled down by the uuthoritesl
The speaker said that he was informed
Mr. Kirkland is determined to speak again
on next Sunday, and thousands say he shall
speak, and if the Mayor with his police
force attempts to put him down what
then? (Shouts of kill him off! Kill the
scoundrels !) No, brothers, friends, fellow
citizens, I protest, against that. Don't kill
them ; there is a belter wuy than that it
is to impeach the Mayor. Stand bv the
laws of your country, and make him yield
to them. There is a law to reach the Sena
tors of the United States, or the President,
and impeach them ; and it is a pretty thing
if there is no iaw to leach so contemptible
a thing as the Mayoi of Cincinnati.
We have here a pretlv state of things,
and how did it all originate ? By an uuiust
claim of the Roman hierarchy. They ask
their share of the school fund. 1 hey have
made objections to our schools merely as
an excuse. 1 he asked the introduction ot
the Douay Bible, and when it was granted
they were disappointed. They wanted to
be persecuted, and gel a grab at the public
treasury, i hey do not want only the taxes
they pay, but their ratio in regard to num
ber of children. How is it with the poor
fund. They pay one-tenth an I Vrotntaritt get
one-tenth f They think because they have
itall their own way in Austria, Fiance,
Spain and Italy, they can "come il" here
too; but they will fiad they have "waked
up tlie wrong passenger."
The Ilov. gentleman, in conclusion, allu
led to a Pope havinrr once put his foot
upon the neck of a King! That religion
'rttirer changes. Will you cllow the
Pope to put his loot on your necks ? I be
lieve he now has i; on Mayor Snlbaker's.
The whole speech of Mr. Prestley was
received with great applause almost every
sentence finding an echo in the great heart
of the muss there assembled,
Mr. Prestley returned to Urn stand and
stated that he had been requested to ask
leave of the meeting in legard to Mr. Snet

powder. It was the opinion of the warmest
friends of (he present Mayer, that he has be
trayed his trust, and hoped that Mr. S. would
have the manhood to resign, but he fcareJ he
would not. It was his great desire that there
should be no violence; but he would warrant if

Never before in the history of Cincinnati
was there ever such a universal feeling of , in
dignation towards the course of any man as is
now felt towards Mr. Snelbaker. Wc doubt
whether the city was ever so excited upon any
question, not even excepting the dark age cf
mobs; snd the only influence which now ope
rates against a popular outbreak, is that the
better judgment of the people is fully exercised.
It is well known that the Catholic Hierarchy
are thirsting for a physical attack, for they sup
pose thereby to create a sympathy in their be-
nan unuer tne pica oi persecution; snd it is

We learn also that the Mayor sent into the

Pennsylvania has pardoned Margaret McCor
mick, the woman who threw a quantity of oil of
vitriol into the face of a young man, named
John McCann, destroying hi eyes, and causing
him the most horrible suffering, so that his reason

Among the' many intrepid Mrneste whd ren
dered noble service t the sufferers ht this dread
ful catastrophe, we arc impelled to sneetion the
name of Mr. Brock Carrol), in particular.' This
gentleman was about leaving the wharf at Nor-
walk te go on a shooting excursion, when this
accident occurred. Immediately n seeing the
cars go into the draw, he sprung into the water,
and swam to a boat, which lie quickly unmoored.
and rowed to the nearest car, which was partial-
ly visible above water; and dashing through the
i it . . . .
wiuaow, ne arew out in succession, Air. Hatha
Harris, of Montgomery;' Alabama, his three
children and nurse, together witk others, and
put in with them for the shore; on landing,, Mr.
Harris embraced him, and eagerly pulling eat
his pocket book, filled with money, offered H te
him, saying, '.i i m.'.i i
''Take il, thou savior of say children! I wish
it was mor-i 1 cannot otherwise cxprcsi. m'r
heartfelt gratitude." '
"All right, sir," said the noble hearted fellow
'1 don't want you te tosttlt me, though,' and.
seizing an axe, he pushed again for the wreck,
and with lusty blows aed superhuman excrtieae
soon made a huge hole in the car' side; and res
cued as many as the boat would hold, wh be
was forced to return reluctantly to the skare
with his freight of rescued live.
Ah r said he. "if there had been a few aaace
boat, and some one te manage mine, 1 could
have got inside of the car and have drawn out a
great many that I saw rising te the surface, and
sinking again to the bottom to die; it was awful
to see their agonized feature, all wounded and
bloody, a they struggled with the energies of
de pair, for dear, Hear life." "' " i"
Many ef those who were striving fee life.
when he left with hi boat-fell, were ailest U
the long sleep ef death, on hi return. , , ,

There was only the trptet pert cf one side
above water. He wa afraid that his strength
would fail him before he coald finish his geed
work, but said he. "nrv muscles flt fust like
steel bars, as 1 swung tne axe, and sieve in the
panels." . , ' JV'
When all was finished and ne more Uvea
could be saved, he felt that hi duty was accent
plished. The many horrors he had to witness;
the mangled and maimed; the agony ef teres ved
relatives; and the terror stricken people snaking
desperate efforts to render assistance, bat per
fectly paralyzed through horror at' the awful
event, made a deep impression on him'.' ;
TTe think too much praise cannot be given to
Mr. CarroH, for his noble conduct in this case.

room, they were sobbing bitterly'. ' We had the
pleasure to iniorra them or the saicty of tbetr
relalise, and words could not portray the joy
which beamed ontheir countenances at the wel
come intelligence. This morning we eew then
