Fjt the Hannibal Journal.
Mr. KniTon i In jour paper of last week, I aotlce cull
signed by "Many Voters," mlttulcg mo to became a candi
date lor fbi office of City Marshal, mil feci it my duty to
respond to Ibtt fill. In 10 doing, I yield to their nUhee,
cod hecota i candidate fnr thit ,fliot. J bave only to lay
tbit, ibould 1 be elected, I will, tcocrdirg to tbt best of my
bility, strictly ind faithfully dlrrhtrpt the duties devolving
upon me ever koeping in view tbt interest! of the city, ind
1U eitlini. I fel muiSo flstUtfd by tub) tell, inl return to
"Mkny Voters" my sincere thanks, ind earnt'tly (oliclt tbe
loipirtof ill. Very rcepectfally,
We anxiously search tlic future with a glass
of "hcxtra double million magnifying power,"
as Samuol Wcllcr, Esq., would have said.
"When I get to be a man," says the boy who
lias jut put on his first pair of pantaloons, "I
will go where I please, and do lis 1 like, anil
Father can't make me do anything;" tnd this
lofty idea swells him, until the new incxpress
Vblcs can scarcely contain their owner. At he
xjrows up other ilreuins light up his path, calling
arouud him ill the glories of n brilliant future,
with none of its drawbacks. As lime progress
ps, diflu-ultirs, impediments, and obstructions
unfxperU'rtly start up and glare upon him like
unbidden phantoms. Then a shadow begins to
fall upon his prospects. The view becomes
"mixed." There is no longer a monotony oT
flowers mi ! r.iinhows. An unskillful artist, he
at first put no. lung tmt light in his pictures.
Experience learns Mm to introduce some sha
ding, also, lie discovers that no rairy attends
him to change pumpkins into splendid carriages,
or hares to magnificent horses, or everything he
touches, instantaneously to gold. Fairies slow
er in their movements, and of sterner aspect,
but not less potent for good, arc to control his
destinies: these arc Labor, Self-denial, Patience
Cities and nations arc governed by the fame
feelings that rule the destinies of individuals.
A man coming to this section in 183(5, would
have been struck with the apparent necessity
for a town ef considerable importance somewhere
on the west bank ef the Mississippi, between St
Louis and the Lower Ilapids. Not looking to a
railroad future, which, like second Nature,
would most probaWy bestow Fortune's favors
promiscuously, and in seeming confusion; but
considering only the commercial advantages
as developed, it would have appeared that ht
Louis must lorevcr remain uic central sun,
ing revolving nrsund it the lesser lights stud-
ding the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. All )
the produce concentrated at these points might :
be expected to be poured into St. Louis, and;
t,nc wmild li( drawn all their suntilies for the !
tnenee wouui ueurawn au uit-ir -uppiiia iui
interior. Lrnter sucii circumManccs, no rry
important town could be expected to spring up
There would be races for precedence, rostcring,
and in turn cheered on by local rivalries and
petty jealousies, the small Victory finally to be
awarded to that town which should manage to
net the best start, or which mi"ht
o - u
with some neighborhood advantages
this fortunate town be Louisiana
if i . i i
or Palmyra, or Marion City
Lagrange or Alexandria ? Alllhcsc places luul
a fine scope of country bock of them, though ;
Hannibal was proliuUly t.esi niuuieu, in mat rc
snect, the radius of licr circle of trade being 70
to 100 miles, over a counlry uuMirp isscd in pro
ductive capacity, and which, by immigration,
was rapidly increasing in population. Alexan
dria is too near Keokuk. Lagrange, Tully and
Canton oould not be expected lo adv. .nee much
farther than they have gone, as they had Quiu-
y on one side and Hannibal on the other, lo
c.iM.'rnd :.g.iint. Marion City was soon swept
cii bv lie waves of the Mississippi, and with
i! m;.i. : rc.uis "casllc in the air." Leaving
'railroad out of the question, no good reason
coul l iiav been advanced fifteen years ago, why
Louisiana should not progress nearly as fast
und ., f r :; ILmiiibal. Palmyra was the most
pr.mui.'.t val of Hannibal. She had the
county sea., , :. 1 Hannibal was crammed down
into the ex'.reme comer of the county. The
P trunsniirtaiiiin from Marion CilV to Pal-
ivm wh hut trilliiiL'. while the trade

however, with other minur diflicul'ies, lias van-

uptriority, there were no circumstances sur

Dbownid. Yesterday a man was found in
the river about live , miles above Hannibal, and
brought down to Scipio. He had apparently
bten dead tome eight or nino (lays; was proba
bly a deck hand; had on a blue shirt und blue
punts, with a handkerchief around his waiat.
THE CHEAP BALK OF STOCK.
Mr. Hall ought not to be guilty of a great
many absurdities erjual to that of telling his
stock in the Hannibal .ind St. Jesepli Railiond
at twenty per cent, below par! That stroke
of policy A-as a dead failure. Instead of bring
ing discredit tipisalhe road, it only caused the
perpetrator to be laughed al. !
There is one aggravated phase of this act of
ridiculous folly, from which we are happily able
to relievo Mr. Hall. On the authority of a ecu-
tleman wo published ft short time ago a state
ment that Mr. Hi.ll had been offered par at St.
Joseph just previously to selling out in this cily.
This Mr. Hall pronounces a "lie." We coulJ
or course know nothing about what wai going
on at Saint Joseph, exTccpt through information
lenved from others. Our informant confesses
that he might have been mistaken, and we fairly
cowhide that he wu$ mistaken.
A gentleman in St. Joseph advertisos that he
will buy all the stock in the Hannibal and Saint
Joseph Railroad that may be ofTered for sala at
20 per cent, discount. We presume, however,
that he may save himself further trouUe. Mr.
Hall's is nrobablv the last of the lot.
The Pennsylvania ltailioad Company
own 16 locomotives., ot which t ivelve are
ofacapaclyt equal to speed of SO miles n
hour. The Baltimore and Ohio railiond j
have 111 locomotives, some of which are of!
equal speed. 1 his immense velocity has
been attained through the active competi
tion of the railroad companies, who have
spared no exensc in rewarding construct
ors Tor costly experiment.
The examination of Misses Smith Si Patricks'
school took place yesterday in the basement of
the li.iptist Church, and was largely attended.
The proficiency or the scholars was very satis
factory even to those who were not acquainted
with the fact that the larger portion of the school
has been made up during the progress of the
session, so that there has not been time to train
many of the scholars equally with others. Yet
the prompt readiness and correctness of answers
was much admired, and considered very credit
able to the teachers and their scholars. T'vo
studies, astronomy and botany, the scholars were
not examined in, on account of the lateness of
the hour at which they were reached in the or-

STABBING, We learn from one of our cit
izens jnst returned from a visit to Boone county
that on Tuesday the l'Jth inst., a serious dilfi-
culty occurred at liocheport, between iMr.fllc
Quiddy and a Mr. Lewis, in which the former
stabbed the latter in the abdomen with a Howie
knife. An examination was made by medical
attendants soon after injury was inflicted, and
tlie wound pronounced to be fatal. Our in
formant learns however that death had not en
sued on Thursday morning, though lie hopes
were entertained of his recoviiry.
McQuidily was immediately arrested and
put on trial in a court of inijuiry, which resulted
in ruling him to bail for his appearance before
tlie next circuit court, in the sum of seven hun
dred dollars. Our informant was not advised of
the cause which led to the dihculty, Druns
wicker. The so,l of Siberia, at the close of the Sum
mer is found still frozen for fifty-six inches be
neath the surface, and the dead, that have lain ill
their Collins fur one hundred and fifty years,
have been taken up unchanged in the lrust.
