Few persons have any conception of
the magnitude of the interest covered by
the above title, and very few even among
the railway fraternity are aware of how
fully this vast system occupies the field
in which it is located; but if you will
take a map and trace out, first, the New
lork Central & Hudson Hiver; second,
the iioston & Albany; third, the
iake Shore & Michigan Southern; fourth,
the Michigan Central; fifth, the Cleve
land, Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis,
(formerly the "Bee Line" and "Big
Four") railroads, you will be impressed
with the wonderful foresight of the men
who designed and executed the plan to
operate under a uniform policy, and
practically a common control, a system of
ralways that should furnish unsurpassed
transportation facilities to the great
commercial empire outlined above, and a
trip over this grand aggregation will con
vince the most skeptical that the Vandor
bllt system ot railways, of which the New
York Central & Hudson River railroad is
the main stem, traverses the very heart
or me ousiness portion or this continent,
touching, either directly or through its
immediate connections, all the important
commercial centers of the country, and
offering to health, pleasure and business
travel facilities that are not equalled by
any similar Institution in the world.
An edition of one hundred thousand
copies of a very neat little pamphlet

THE HISTORIC RESORT.
A Mstaeatlae KaMtar'a Karatar With
Black Hawk's) Watefc Tawer.
Among those who came to Rock Isl
and with the Presbyterian excursion from
Muscatine Tuesday was the editor of the
fewi Tribune of that city. He devotes
nearly three columns of his paper to an
account of the trip and in particular to
Black Hawk's watch tower and the jour
ney thereto over the Rock Island & Milan
road and says:
The summit is reached, we ride along
the plateau to where a spacious open plat
receives us, we alight and stand on Black
Hawk's tower. The open grounds con
stituting this famous eminence, have a
nice, well-kept sward, and in the centre
stands a refreshment house comfortably
verandahed. We psss around this build
ing in the hurry to enjoy the view, and
come out upon a noble terrace command
ing one of the most enchanting prospects
to be seen in the west. As we stand, we
have our backs turned to Rock Island and
the valley we have journeyed through
and we are looking east, with expanded
views stretching to the north and south.
Here we get our first sight of Rock river,
whose silvery stream is trsced from far
north to where it flows at the foot of our
promontory and disappears around the
bluff somewhere, to enter the valley we
have just traversed. The bluff on which
we stand must belong of right to the Mis
slssippi river, marking the boundary of
its valley, and on making its way through
this Muff Rock river Is intruding on the
bottom lands of the Father ot Waters.
But on this easterly side of the bluff, the
little river has a valley all its own. and
which in beauty and range will compare
with any views commanded by its great
ilval. It is a magnificent landscape,
stretching for miles across its width and
miles upon miles in its length. Truly
this spot was a "tower" indeed! On this
commanding height Black Hawk sta
tioned bis sentries; here he assembled bis
chiefs and held his councils. Not many
rods away were laid to their last rest the
remains of bis father, the proud chief
whom he succeeded. After the disss
trous battle of Bui Axe. Wis., in Aug
ust. 1833. he asked ot the pale faces one
favor and only one that the graves of
his ancestors and his tribe be spared from
While the excursionists are gazing up
on the glorious panorama before them
and musing upon the reminiscences of
the spot, a talented party of musicians
are seated on the adjacent veranda and
delighting all with exquisite airs, exquis
itely played on piano, violin, gultar,man
dolin and silver bells. We learn that
music of some kind is constantly provid
ed for visitors to the tower.
On the outskirts of the city we pass the
stately residence or Col. Bailey Daven
port, embracing a handsome park, and
soon after we are speeding along in the
valley or Kock river, our railway a very
narrow one. aa it has to tie, for the track
runs through front yards and back gar
dens, a flower bed tempting one to reach
out for a nosegsy, alternating with a cab
bage tract, and now a cornfield or potato
patch invaded no soil to waste here, for
this is the richest land in the west; but to
the north, fiom an eighth to a half mile
on our left, we see the line of a gently
sloping bluff which runs continuously
parallel s-ith our track, until we turn to
ascend it; and there are beautiful homea
scattered along those hillsides, and we
learn that tbe highway at the foot of the
bluff, of which we catch occasional
glimpses, leads to the Rock Island ceme
tar, some two miles from the city.
But here in the midst of these rose
bushes and potatoes hills, our cars are
running over historic ground. Here, no
longer ago than 1832 stood the renowned
village of the Sac Indians, numbering
over 10.000 inhabitants, while extending
at right angles from Rock Island to Mo
line was tbe Fox village of over 5.0(H)
population, both tribes, at the date above
mentioned, under tbe powerful chieftain
ship of Black Hawk. Every road we
paas over la conaecrated cround. It was
from this lovely valley, its river and con-
tmuous waters teeming with fish, the
surrounding country abounding in game,
the soil yielding abundant maize, and
where uncultivated a flowery mead, that
these brave sons and daughters of the
forest, with their children and household
goods, took up their forced and aad de
parture for their exile tievond the treat
river in Iowa.
The horsea have lieen unhitched from
our cars, tbe train is joined, a dummy
tttgine attached, and we begin the ascent
.f the bluff. You thought you had to go
10 uenver or to 1'ennsylvania taenoy
the sensation of being hauled up a
mountain aide on a train of cars didn't
ywa Tww to. A hmii, w.ot.in aide,
but as you go up the steep slope ami
wind among and around the forest trees,
and the vistas in the valley crow more
and more extended, there is very little of
tne mountain ascent that you miss.
A Kit rrrsseatatiea
The friends in his own township and
this city of Mr. I. N. Rodenbaugh., of
Bowling, learning of his intended trip to
California for his health, thought it would
not be out of place to give him a stick to
assist him in viewing the scenes of the
Pacific coast. This waa appropriately
done today. The cane is of solid oak
beautifully carved with Masonic and Odd
Fellows emblems. Tbe original design
is in tbe handwork of Mr. Edward Mc
Cartney, and it was loaned to Mr. Jas. B.
Johnson the well known turner and scroll
work expert of this city, who with a
pocket knife cut out the center part of
the original . The pane passed through
tbe hands of the silversmith and painter
and when completed was presented to
