W railroad article, signed "O," the fint letter
of the name of O'Sullivan, the Chief Engineer
of the Pacific Railroad, and who may be safely
supposed good authority on railroad matters.
He concludes his article with what he calls "a
St. Louis View," and we call attention to his
remarks under that head, because the fact that
Hannibal will have a railroad connection with
Springfield, 111., in two years, is unheiitatingly
admitted, or rather thrown in between paren
theses, as something which was so much te be
taken as a matter of course, that it would occur
te the raindt of well informed readert, without
being mentioned by the writer. The other fact
te which we with to call attention is the id.
mitsioR of the superior advantage in point of
distance, which our road enjoys over the Pacif
" "A St.. Louis View. People living on the
Hannibal and St. Joseph road, thote living on
the Kantas road, and those living on tiie south
western road, very naturally desire that the rod
from California shall come to that point on the
boundary of Missouri where their particular
load terminates. Now, when Colouel Benton
insists on making Kantat a ttarling point, hit
plan hat one defect which he cannot remove,
but by abandonment, to the satisfaction of any
man who lookt to the future giowth, glory, and
permanent prosperity of St. Ltuis. Let me
make thit clear. Kansas is not leu than from
30 to 40 miles north of St. Loui: the Erie
road, the southernmost of the New York roads,
is continued to Cleveland and to Chicago; also
north of at. Louts. Now whether you leave
the New York road at Dunkirk, at Erie, at
Cleveland, at Toledo, or at Chicago, to go to
Kansas, on the way to California, when the cart
come down as far south as the city of Spring
field tliev will, naturally, pass directly west to
Hannibal (for in two years Hannibal and Spring
field will ue connected): from Kansas, or from
a point a little went of it, a road would be run
east to the Hannibal and St. Joseph road; cars
from Springfield via St. Louis to Kantas or
Fort Leavenworth would run not less than CO,
probably more than an 100 miles further than
they would run if they were to cross the coun
try directly to Kantas. A road from Toledo
via Lafayette, on the Wabash, directly to Knn
s (via Hannibal. would be more than 100
miles shorter than nroidfroui Toledo via St
Louis lo Kansas. It would be built ef course."
f rna the jovrxal.
A correspondriit of the Courier, in describing
the state of society in the city of Hannibal, thus
peaks of our citizens :
.Wits citizens are peaceable, quiet and orderly
in their general demeanor: but religious fanati
cism has taken such hold on their minds that the
J irivale rights of those who differ with them are
labia to intrusion, and the names of those of
Itheir families are only mentioned with reproach
and scorn, furnishing food for long-tongued,
slanderous women, imbecile men and misguided
"Protestants declaim loudly against popery and
'the influence of the Church; but at the same
time would establish an inquisition in their
midst worse than that which is branded as the
Horrid Inquisitian of Spain. They would unite
the legislation of the State and city with the
will of the Church, to enforce their peculiar
vitiwa loslntr sieht of the Constitution and the
ruei which led to our clorious Revolution,
and trampling under feot the very principles for
which our fathers bled, glory in the result of
temporary victory, etc.
" The abova sentiments have gone forth from
the city of Hannibal through the columns of
one of our city papers without sets or com
ment from the editor, end are, therefore, as I
understand, tacitly endorsed by that tditor. And,
as no one has 'spoken out' upon the subject, I
feel it my duty to do so.
.- "These are irrave accusations sgainst the cili
tens of Hannibal; and if true, we all should
know it and reform; but if false, they should be
exposed, and the character of our cit.izens vin
I coinoide with the writer when he says our
"citizens are peaceable, quiet and orderly in
their general demeanor" but that "religious
fanaticism has taken such hold upon their tnindt

And ere jrou. cilirens of Hannibal.'deeirous,
laboring to "establish an inquisition in your
midst worse than the horrid inuuisition of
Spain P" "Yet," says the correspondent of the
vuuner. " . ,--.. ,
Would you "unite the legislation of the State
and city with the will of the Church, to enforce
your peculiar views V "Yet," tayt Mr. "Moi.
With the will of uhal Church do you intend
to unite "the Initiation of the State and city?"
The "peculiarities" of which Church do you
desire thus te "enforce?"
Would you by law, establish the Methodist.
the Baptist, the Pretbyterian, the Episcopalian
or the Christian, Church? No, the friends of
neither one of these churches would if they
could, nor could i they would. They would
have their religion, or the advocates thereof,
just as they now are, "protected ly tht law" so
that every human being might enjoy the privi
lege lo read, to understand, to believe and obey
the Bible or lo disobey it, as his own reason
and consoienee might dictate.
Would you then, "unite the legislation of the
State and city to enforce the peculiar views or
the Pope of Rome?" I do not believe for one
moment you 'would do any audi thing. I am
confident you are in faver of "Reliirious Liber.
But the time may come when the public sen
timent may change and if we ore lo regrd
Mr. "Moderation" as a prophet, that lime will
come for he says, "That religion (this fanati
cal , abominable Proiettant religion) which is now
protected by the law will be trodden under
foot." In the same vein writes the "Shepherd
ot the Valley," the Pope's organ for the State
of Missouri. He says, "If the Catholics ever
gain which they surely will do, though at a
distant day an immense numerical superiority,
Religious freedom ik this country is at a
r!d. So say our enemies, so we believe I"
Hark ye, Ci'izensl The Courier's eorrcs
pondent says our religion will be hodden under
foot! May I ask, by what haughty tyrant's foot
the religion of our fathers and of eur God, shall
be trodden in the dust? If men will objeot to
locale in our town, because of the religious zeal
f our citizens, or our opposition to dram-selling
and dram-drinking, 1, as one ef the citizens,
will promise not lo shed one tear for (heir ab

the present writing till the angel's trump shall

Hannibal may succeed without them! He
says "the city of Hannibal has as much right to
legislate upon the subject of slavery in the lim
its of the city, as it has upon the subject of li
The above clearly manifests Mr. "Modera
tion's" ignorance upon the subject, or his design,
hy a quibble, to deceive the people.
It may, perhaps, be true, that the city of Han
nibal has not the authority to grant any person
a license to sell spirituous liquors in the city, or
in any portion of Marion county that being
the prerogative of the county court; but I now
affirm that though a man have a license to si'J
spirituous liquors from the county court, the
city of Hannibal has the authority "to levy and
collect" such a tax on said license, ns their judg
ment may dictate; and I quote the following act
of the Legislature of the Slate of Missouri, in
The City Council of the City of Hannibal
shall have power "To levy and collect a tax on
dram-shops, liquor-sellers, &,c." See "An Acl
to amend and reduce into one act, the several
acts incorporating the city of Hannibal Art. C,
But more than this the council of the city of
Hannibal have the power to prohibit any person
from sellixc spirituous liquors within the
citt. Listen to the Legislature igin. The
City Council shall have power' to restrain nnd
suppress tippling houses and dramshops
to rerulute and prohibit, if deemed proper, the
sale of spirituous liquors wilhin the city. lb
We now have the facts before us : "Modera-
ration isvt the city of Hannibal has not the
pewer the Legislature of Missouri says the
citv of Hannibal shall have tht power."
Which shall we believe ? We have tried the
Legislature, and are acquainted with some of the
members, and have confidence in that body; but
this "Moderation we do not know; we Tear he
has assumed a fictitious name, while in reality
he is something else,
We azree with Mr. " Moderation, " 1 hat
Religious Fanaticism is likely to produce more
trouble to the Govsrnraen, and lead to more
blood-shed" and we tli'nk that the hatred
against our public schools, manifested by the
I'aual priests and editors in the United States
and their unconcealed efforts to have a portion
of the nublio funds set apart to pay for having
Roman Catholicism taught lo ine cniuiren is a
demonstration of the exislenct and intensity ef
.... ... .
that " fanaticism.'
And we weuld say in conclusion, if Mr,
" Moderation '' wishes any good to our town
he has certainly taken a singular course to man'
itest his feeluiBS lo misreureseni our ciuzens
to tlander, and cast out billingsg.ua agamsl
our mothers, sisters, wives and daughters.
Can it be that the Courier endorses, or winks
at, such a document as that which defiles its
columns ? We pause for a reply. D.

HANNIBAL JOURNAL, MAY 26, .1853.
Interesting ruins of ancient cities have lately
been discovered in Mexico. One of the cities
is three miles In length. Ruined temples and oth
er edifices, human skeletons, mines, &c, have
been found. The scorch for wonders ii to be
continued. This is interesting newt for the

Pacine, and Haaaibal and St. Joseph ailrosds.
Questions having arisen at Washington
in regard to the interpretation lo be given
to the law or January 10, 1852, granting
lands to the State ol Missouri for JUilioari
purposes, we litve the sniUfnction of eta
ting that a decision highly beneficial lo the
Pacific, and Hannibal and Si. Joien'i llnil-
rond.1 hat been mnde by oil the authorities

at Washington. 15y thin decision, the two
companies named will receive lands in lieu
of those sold or ttficrwise dhpoxrd of, such
ns Spanish grants, School tectum, Swnmp
lands, Indian reserves, JVew Madrid loca
tions, &c. We understand from a quarter
not likely to be mistaken, that the amou.il
covered by private claims on the roule of
tie Paciiic road is about CO.GGl ncrcs, and
the quantity granted for schools about
06,931 acres, making a total of l'J7,5U2
acres. To this quantity Is to be added the
overflowed or Sw mp lands, as yet not as
certained, but which will make the amount
to be acquired by the Pacific road not less
than two to three hundreJ thousand acres,
and the Hannibal nnd St. Joseph road about
two hundred thousand acres. It is also sta
ted, that an approximate estimate at the
Land office will give to the Pacific road, un
der the oct of Congress, 1,205,900 acres.

an immense amount of stock will cross the
