longer than I eapected to have been, I found

next November City election.

' I started to Pike county, in regard to whether I
would consent to discharge the duties of the
office, it elected, jet I did not suppose that any
formal nomination would be made, which would
place me in the attitude of being the exclusive
candidate of any particular party.

J"Rev. Antoinette Brown, the woman
whose speech created so much excitement in the
Whole World's Temperance Convention, is now
the pastor of the Congregational Church at South
Butler, Wayne county, New Turk. A corres

"She is a young lady of remarkably pleasing
manner and address, who has taken lier colleg

been for some months earnestly and successful

In forcing an estimate of the prospective val

think is lest calculated te lead to a correct re

the preseat value of lauds of simitar quality etU

of transportation as are afforded by the Miseoua

sidering thecomparative difficulty of approach
ing these rims through the bottom land, and
the uncertaiity of the navigation, are evidently
far inferior 'o those furnished by a Rail
