Democratic party of this section, and we
may say of the whole State for, as a citl

with some degree of pride, that his paper
was acknowledged ly all parties to be the
ablest Democratic paper in the State.
As a clever man, and a man of strict in

This question has been a puttier to the peo
ple ot Brown county, and mav not nerhaDs be
as well understood as it should be by the oi'.i
tens ot Adams. We happen to be able te ex
plain it. We have not cared to do it heretofore,
because we felt assured that the people of this
eity did not approve the abandonment, no matter
what might have been the motive or reason for
the adoption of that course. Messrs, Rogers,
Itushnell & Bull had made arrangements in New
York for the money te build the road. A tele
grnphio dispatch wus received by the capitalists
with whom this arrangement had been made,
announcing that the Hannibal charter had passed
the Senate through the influence of Senator
Wood, and that it would undoubtedly pass the
House. They Informed Messrs. Rovers & Co.,
Mat they now had a prospect or a better invest
tneni, ami wojiu not iiirnien me means, as wey
had screed to. to build anv other road in tVn
part oflllinois, as long as there was a prospect ot
the passage ot the Hannibal charter. They
argued that the road from Naples te Hannibal
would give them all the connections and all the
advantages they wanted, and that the distance
being but thirty-two miles, while the distance
from Quincy to Meredocia Was about fifty-five
miles, it would cost them some two hundred
thousand dollars less to build the road from the
Illinois river to the Mississippi at Hannibal than
from the Illinois to the Mississippi at Quincy.
These arguments were irresistible and unan
swerable, in their minds, and Messrs. IWers
&. Co., were compelled to oome home without
the means to build the road from Quincy to Mer
edocia. Such had been the effect of Senator
Wood's vote and influence in favor of the Han
nibal road. He had by his suppart ot that road
given eastern capitalists good reason to believe
they would bo able to obtain the charter, and
had thereby induced them to deny lotho agents
of Quincy tho money with which to build the

want upon u. in uireciors nave ocen forced
to abandon it, and for the simple reason tlmt
they couldn't procure the money of eastern cap
italists necessary to build it, and they couldu't
procure tnai money because Mr. wood s votes
and influence in the senate in favor or the Han
nibal road has led them to firmly believe thev

Our friends in Brown county will now under

votes on Monday last approved the course ot
John Wood in it from beginning to end. The
Kople of this city have said by their votes on
onday last, that in eommpelling the board to
abandon any further efforts at present to con
struct the railroad from this city o Meredocia
John Wood did ptrftclly right. Such is the
judgment of our citnens, and from it our fel-ow-citisens

1 Cronica, the Spanish journal published in
this city, reviews the publio life of ex-Senator
Soule, and speaking ot his appointment as
American Minister to the Court of Spain, says
it is the unanimous opinion of the editor's
compatriots that "Her Majesty's Government
will not aot in accordance with its self-respect
ii it recognises the credentials of the new rep
resentalive ot the United States:" and adds that
"if search was expressly made for a man to
frustrate any negotiation between Spain and the
United States, no one could be selected more
likely to accomplish this purpose than the
French Senator from Louisiana," Other hard
things are said, which we need not translate.
