Forty mllai of staging would plica North
Missouri in clone connection, through Honnibul,
winter and lumtasr, with Saint Louis, Chioigo,
and the Eait through that city, Louisville, Mad
ison, Cincinnati, Wheeling, PitUburgh, Cleve-
land, New Orleans, Sto. In short, it would be
the favorite route of travel for persona going to
or coming from ny icction of the Union.
The amount of travel over such a thoroughfare,
after it beenme known that a daily line of etsges
was in operation from Hannibnl to Naples,
would very materially lessen that which throngs
sir daily paokets, two of which pass Hannibnl
every hy, besides the transient boats. A large
portion ut these passengers is composed of per
sons going to and returning from the East in
the spring end fall, particularly, this is the esse
to it gi eat extent. Every year adds to the list
of merchants who go East to purchase their
goods; every ycur increases the number of peo
ple who come west to settle, or look for homes ;
every year adds to the length of the long, ser
pentine, iron track, that is creeping steadily
from the western shore of the Atlantio to the
eastern bank of the Mississippi; and no insig
nificant amount of the current of (ravel that has
been borne upon the bosom of the Ohio, is being
diverted te the Illinois river, and (he Alton and
Chicago railroad. In few words, the tido of
travel is more and more setting cast and west,
iustead of north and south, and adopting the
shortest, most direct routes, in preference to
those more round about and tedious. Tho fa
vorito route for Northern Missouri to New I
York, Doston, Philadelphia or Baltimore, is via
Chicago. To accomplish this, tho travelsr must
go to St. Louis, and thence up the Illinois river,
or by railroad from Alton. The lime from St.
Louis to Chicago, by the latter route, is three
duys j if there were a line ef stages from Hun
nibal to Naples, the time from Hunnibal to Chi
cago would be three days or less. Persons
from the interior, and even from points bordering
on the Missouri river, would prefer this route;
the trip from Glasgow te Hanaibul is preferable
to that from Glasgow to St. Louis, even in good
stages of water ; and when the river is low or
frozen, there could not bean instant's hesitation
about crossing at this point, if thero were a daily
line of stages to Naples. There is now a rail
road in operation frem Naples to Springfield,
and another from Springfield to Chiongo, with
the exoeption of fifty miles of stsgimr. The
connection by railroad over this fifty miles will
be completed by December next.
In winter, the traveler who starts from Han'
nibal for St. Louis, may calculate on a disagree'
able trip, occupying an indefinite length of time
say from two days to ten, according le weather
and rivers. With a line of stages te Naples,
the trip would be made in fourteen or sixteen
hours, or leu than the avenge time et the steam
boat! in summer.

Aft Ericsson's C.noinr at tub Crystal
Palacb. A beautiful little model of the
Caloric Engine, Cnptaiu Ericsson has had
constructed for exhibition in the Crystal
ralace. It is no more than four feet linih,
and two and naif in diameter, made ot pot
ished steel, and far belter tilted to ormt
ment a sitting room than many ofthu .Unves
which are found there. As its object is k iic

Another Steamboat Murdkr. On Sat
urdav last the steamer Empire, ou the Hud
son, came in collision with a sloop about six
miles above l'ouuhkeepsie. The boilers of
the Empire exploded, and six or eight
persons were instantly killed, and some
twelve) men were budly wounded. The
boat was crowded with passenger. Had
the catastrophe occurred, suys the Herald
at any other time than when most of those
on boars! were asleep, no doubt the loss o
life would have exceeded that pioduced by
any similar disuster on tha same rlvnr for a
number ot years.

think, expect that permanent relations
will before long be opened with Japan."

Tim two wretched men, D'ldge and Shawney,
were li.imchrd into curnity nt half past one
uYlurk vtMtar lay afternoon. At 12 o'clock the
crowd aoimuuiiced to assemble on Chesnut and
Sixth streets, outside of the prison walls, and
ouuhniied to grow larger, oven, until alter the
enactment of the shocking scent. At one time
thoro could have been bo less than two thousand
men and boys who filled the streets, all seeking
some point from which they could witness the
oxooution. The eoaflbld was almost entirely
osnoeoled from view, however, by the surround
ing prisen and oriininal court buildings. With
in the yard there were two hundred and fifty to
three hundred citizens, policemen and other of-
fioers. The two Culholio clergymen piss
ed the greater portion ot the morning with
the convicts. At a uuitrter raat one o'clock, all
the melancholy preparations having been eora
