The St. Louis Times, of the 4th inst., coru
kaint a long and well writtten article upon the
subject ot a ro-union or uia democratic party, jri
which the ground is assumed that, inasmuch as
Col. Benton ha left the State and taken tip l,i
residence permanently at Washington City, the
principal barrier that separated the Two wings;
of the party has been removed, and that they
can now unite and act as harmoniously together
as. they did prior to the disorganization in their
ranks occasioned by the ex-Senator's firebrand
"appeal." We confess that this projiosition of
the Times takes us a little by surprise, and that,

In moral and social habits we think the effects
of progress are visible in the increased tempe

proved habits of cleanliness, industry, and order
in the lower classes; in the increased liberality,
urbanity, and humanized feeling oT the higher
ones. In the establishment of peace and arbi

of the winter perhaps $3 worthof hay, and, in

each. In the other place, the calf is fed on
straw or refuse hay, and at three years old will,
if a steer, bring perhaps $20; if a heifer, $12.

This line will strikea linnibal, and intersect
with the St. Joseph line. This line will then be.
the longest, most isnportant and profitable on,
