At this Office, TWO COMPOSITORS.

Last Wednesday Cupt. Carson, by order of
the Department, delivered over to the l'otma
tor at Palmyra, liis official papers, books, keys,
Sic., pertaining to liis office us mail agent or
this district. Who his successor is, is not
known. Perhaps, us Captain Curaon bus ubout
rid the West ef mail robbers und defaulters, the
Department may think that no successor is ne
cessary. This is " proscription for opinion's
take," with a vengeance ; this cutting ofT the
head of the most efficient mail ugent the West
Las ever had.
jfl A letter or invitation, signed by the
Benton men of this section, will shortly be for
warded to Col. IL-nton, requesting him to deliver
a public uddress in this city.
The Courier seems to be astonihrd that be
should be expected to have the temerity to ven
ture here, while Col. Aim, of Palmyra, is only
twelve miles distant !

The very important otto warranto case before
the supreme court of Illinois, involving the right
of the Mississippi and Atlantic (Terre Haute
and St. Louis) Railroad Company under the
general Kailrond law or thai Mate, to construct
their rond without application t the Legisla
ture, where the right of way has been secured,
was argued at Ottawa, Illinois, on the ISth and
19th July ult., before a full bench. This case
has excited very general attention, and much
interest is felt all over the West in it result;
as upon it will, for the present, depend the
construction of a direct communication between
all the roads lying this tide of the west lite of
Indiana and Illinois.
The case wns ably ar?ued en both sides. On
the part of the Mississippi and Allantio Rail
road Company, by Hon. LI ward Sanford, of this
city, who, says the Chicago Dtmocral, "occu
pied the court about four or five hours in ouo of
the most learned und eloquent arguments ever
submitted to a Court." At the elose, the Court
fromiafd an early decision, which is expected
lere in a few days. .Mpw York Tribune.
On the 231 tilt., a goodly number of the citi
zens of Macon county met at Georgetown.
Sterling Colter was called to the ennir, and
George Palmer appointed Secretary. Tho ob
ject of the rocetii'g was explained by Dr. Me
lanin, tuo chair appointed a committee ol six to
draft resolutions, whtreupon the following reso
lutions wero read aud adopted:
lt. That Macon county subscribe not less
than fifty thoasand dollars stock in the North
Missouri Railroad, and that the county court at
its earliest convenience submit the proposition to
the people of the county.
2nd. Were it not for the stock already sub
scribed in the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad,
the meeting would propose one hundred thou
sand dollars as stock in the North Missouri rail
road. From the wording of the second of the above
res ol ut ion , it appears that Macon county has
concluded to retain her stock in the Ilannila'
and St. Joseph Railroad.

A large number of hands are constantly em

if lienton sliould come, Col. Davis will consider
his ae, and not be more severe with him than
he may think the welfare ut the country abso
lutely requires A webhtld like toiler
the old "liuffalo," we suggest to tho Benton men,
that they persuade Mr. Davis to remain at heme
with his thunder, and then accompany the letter
of invitation with a private note, staling that the
terrible Colonel will not be present. The Cou
rier informs us that Benton run away from Jas.
S. Green, in 18l!. But as Mr. Green will not
be present, and Mr. Davis can .probably be per
suaded to atay awny, from respect to Col. Ben
ton's age, wc dj not think tho latter need be
afraid to come here and make a speech.
The editor of the Courier denies that "the
Benton and Anti-Bsnlon strength is about equal
in this district." He confesses that his denial
is founded on so unsubstantial a thing as a guess,
J3" Recently a paragraph appeared in a Chi
cago paper, in substance as follows :
Anotbkr "Cut-off!" Pike County Ra ilroad,
We understand that while we are endaavor-
ing to construct a railroad from Chicago to
Quincy, to secure the trado of that section of
Illinois and of North-Last Missouri, the South
ern Michigau railroad is contemplating a con
nection with the Hannibal and St. Joseuli rail-
road, by promoting the construction of the Pike
county rnilroad thus diverting from Chicago a
large additional amount of trado and travel, and
operating upon luinoy as a "cut-off."
The truth is, that not less than $200,000,000
in ruilroad stock is interested in the building of
that short forty miles in Pike county, 111 ! Nu
merous railroads, from the Mississippi to the
Atlantic, would bo materially affected in their
ousmess by its construction.
The Courier thinks the Benton ranks will
not be increased, except by recruits from the
Whig party. Benton's strength hat increased
. of late, and that not by Whig recruits. The re
cent election of Lindley, and the fact that there
are now four whig Representatives in Congress
proves that tke Whig strength is increasing, in
stead of losing py deserter?.
borrow Tor tho present from the said bank,
$3,000 00 nt sixty davs, and appropriate the net
proceeds of the said umoimt borrowed, to pay

und that the collector make endeavors to have the
balance collected by the 10th inst, and hand the
aame over to 1 . U. belmrs, who is payee on
said bill of $y,000 00.
On motion of Mr. Westfall. the repert was
received and the coiami'tee instructed to pro
ceed as reported, accordingly. Passed.
On motion, council adjourned.
Enraged nt Lindley's election, the Courier
shouts "War to tho knife." oguinst the Beuto-!
mans, fco it is "war to the knife." but th..
point is at the breast of the Antiei, and the han
dle is in the hands of the Benton men.

We have learned, in addition to what has been
published, that the Board of Directors passed a
resolution, while in session at Hannibal, order
ing the contractor to put under construction, fif
ty miles, additional, ut each end of said Road.
This will reach the vicinity of this place; and,
if done at oace, will defeat the re-survey. The
effect of the proviso, which will cause delay,
and the immediate sub-letting of fifty miles
more of the road, as now located, will inevita
bly defeat all prospect of a favorable issue upon
the proposed re-survey. -Bloommston RqnM-
