IMPROVEMENT OF THE OSAGE
$30,000 JpproprMed.Tt bill ap
propriating $80,000, to be used1 by the O
ttge Association, for the purpose of im
proving this river, passed the Senate on
the 7th iitst. by the decisi ve vole of 21 to
II.. Those Senators who voted for the
ill were: M,esrs. Bean, Burtis, Camp
tell, Bi wards, Flournoy, Gale wood, Jack
ton, Jones of Cooper, Jones of Newton,
Leslie, Long, Lowe, Owens, Triest, Reed,
Rollins, Stewart, Wells, White, Woullolk,
Those voting against the bill were :
Messrs. Abernathy, Burns, Chiles, Elli
son. HANCOCK, Jones of Franklin,
Nickel, Norris, Polk, Trice, and Will
It remains now to to acted on by the
Lower House, with a fair prospect, as we
Understand, of its passing that body. The
votem the Senate is much lurger than was
ifitirinnVrl. and much commendation is
due to Cor. Gatewood, Sera'.or from
Henry, for his vejry able, untiring and lau
dable exertions in securing its passage
through that body. Bye the bye, Col
Gatewood is said to be among the ablest
of the Senators, and makes orw of the
very best of Legilator. Since he has en
tered upon the field of politics, he has e
vinced enlarged and liberal views, which
are ever characteristic of a Statesman, and
has ever acted as the untiring friend of the
improvement of the Osage and the interest
of the South-west. His exertions will
long be favorably remembered.
It will he seen that the Senators-from
St. Louis acted as friends and voted , fur
the bill, and'it should be borne in miud that
that county at an early period joined the
Osage Association, and invested therein,
her portion of She proceeds of the 500,
000 acre grant, thus showing by her acts
a sincerity of friendship towards the grow
ing interest of the South-west, and we
think the day is not far distant when she
will be amply rewarded by an extension
of her commerce which our citizens will
soon be'able to afford.
Among the friends of tile b.U who voted
for it, notwithstanding they were not im
mediakly interested in its passage, maybe
instanced Dr. Burtis of Lafayette, Col.
Jackson of Howard, Maj. Rollins of Boon,
Reed of Calloway, Jones of Cooper, &.c,
Senators representing' counties along the
Missouri river r and Judge Wells of Ma
rion, Col. Priest of Ralls, Dr. Woolfolk
oft Lincoln, 8tc.T from oounties bordering
ontue Mississippi men whose views of
Legislation are not cramped within (he
narrow precincts of their districts.but are
coextensive with the interests of1 their
Col. Jonet of Newton, notwithstanding
ho ii laudably exerting himself for the im
provement of White-river, di d not forget
the inlerestjwhich hit constituents have in
the improvement of the Osage, and voted
for the bill; but the reason why Colonel
HANCOCK of Green, voted against the
bill, is far beyond ouWiv iuing. Dame ru
mor sometimes naughtily suggests that the
good people of the pity of Springfield are
afraid that the improvement of the Osage
will cause towns to spring up along its
banks and attracting the trade of the South
west, will be the means of retarding (he
growth of that very fioumishing young city.
But do those good people imagine they can
devour all the Wheat, Pork, Tobacco,
Hemp, &c., which the fertile counties a
round are capable of producing? If so,
they Dnrat auppt'ce themselves very gre.t
eater f smokers, and withal, that they will
have a very great use for Hemp ! and the
presumption" is, thai the Senator voted in
accordance-with the imaginary interests of
tome of his constituents. We-presume to,
for The it- tail to be a clever man indeed,
and we are very far from impugning his
motives or his vote. At to the-other Sen
ators who- voted against the bill1, consider
ing that their votes did no harm, we heart
ily wish that their qualms of conscience
may be as few at possible, under1 the cir-
OHun. Henry Clay hat been -returned
to the U. States Senate for ix- jears,
front the 4th of March nsxt.-
Upon inquiry amongst our shipping
merchants and produce dealers we find
the following will be about the amount of
products shipped and ready for shipment
the ensuing spring viz :
Lard, COO Bbls., eal'd. value,
Bacon hams, 120,000 lbs., ale.
shoulJers, 96,000 3c.
" sides, 7-2,000 " b4c
Mess Pork, 200 Bbls., a $10,
Prime " 200 Bbls., a $8,
Wheat, 5,000 bushels, a 56c.
Peltry, 20,000 lbs., a 16c.
Other small items, consisting ef
Beeswax, Flaxseed, White
Beans, &.C., &c.
From information received from other
points on the river, Oseo'a, Duroc, Erie,
Linn Creek, Tuscumbia, he, we presume
the amount of products for shipment will
exceed the quantity shipped at any previ
ous spring. The amount of Tobacco up
on the river will not be as large this sea
son as heretofore, owing to short crops
and the low prices at which the article has
ruled for several years. With a small
appropriation for the completion of the
improvements commenced upon the river
last season, thereby giving an assurance
to shippers, of getting their products out
at all times, the amount of produce ship
ped from the Osage river would very soon
swell itself to a vast sum of money.

THE COLDEN CALF.
We are informed by a very old' Book,
that a certain man, named Aaron, ut the
request of a people, called Hebrews, made
a golden calf, and that the people, bowing
down, worshipped it, calling it (heir god,
the one who had brought them out of E-
cypt. We'are also told that a brother of
Aaron, Moses by name, who was absent
when the calf was made, upon seeing the
worship of it, became very indignant, and
quite unceremoniously seizing the golden
god, put hi in into the fire, reduced him to
a fine powder, put this into water, and
made the Hebrews drink their god, as
thousands now drink' their whiskey god.
Now was not this treating the said god
very unmercifully ? And what kind of a
roun was that Moses, who dealt thut with
the golden call?' Wonder if he was in
his serves at the time ? How impiously
did he act in destroying that god which
hi own nation worshipped, and which
civilized and enlightened men of more re
cent times worship ! And their what an
outrage, may his conduct in (hit affair be
considered upon the Letter tense of thou
sands in this age of light and reason, and
in our own enlightened land!- Indeed,
the prevailing opinion of the civilized
world now seems to be in favor of paying1
homage to the golden calf; and although
Motet did pulverize Aaron's calf, and
make the poor Hebrews t wallow it, yet'
othert have been tet up in the temple of
mammon, and immense crowdt flock tliitb- -er
to pay their devotions. The multitudes
that thronj the-temple of Juggernaut, the
shrine of Mohammed, or the tacred placet
and shrinet of departed taints, are but at
a drop in the bucket, or the small dust of
the balance, compared with the number
of those who throng, the temple of the
golden calf and it teemt that in propor
tion to the advancement of civilization, to
in proportion hat increased the love for,
and worship of, this god.
Many moderns far excel the ancient
Hebrewt in their devotednets to him.
Their love is far greater, and hence, their
inoteated-ossiduity.iohit worship. Their
energies, both of mind and body f are fiee-1
ly, cheerfully expended in the servioi of
the golden god. And it thisTinreasina
bleP It k foolish? Now toree have the
extreme hardihood to attert this ; but do
such know what they tayP Are tiey
compos mentis in their right ipindt? Let
ut see. i
The world hat advanced in civilization
greatly tince Aaron't day. People are
far more enlightened now that they were
then. How then, can any one think Aa
ron't conduct and that of the tficient, nd
partially civilized Hebrews,-was foolish
and rrrational? since it ha been sanc
tioned by so many wise men in this en
lightened age.- Why, what h) tie object
of civilization, antes it be to develop
man's love and reverence for the "shining
dust Some thinking that man h immor
la), imagine thut all true ci ilizaticti should
have reference to the develbpmett of hit
immortal nature. Believing (bat thi
world is not his "continuing - city," they
seem to think that he should be educated
for eternity, but what poor, deluded be
ings sRch are 1 They have lost sight of
man's existence, of his "chief end" (hey
have turned aside from the right god.
Gold, gold, is the god. Man came into
existence to worship this. For this he
lives, and move and has his being, and as
he gazes upon its dazzling splendor, his
love for it as awakened, increased. Fur
this he hungers and thirsts. It it the shi
ning god that stimulates his energies, that
nerves him for a contest witft a bufletling
world. Go ask the gold diggers in Cali
fornia, whether tiiit is not so, and they
will shout yes!! For this, they endure
the scorching rays of the sun, tlie pelting
of the wintry storm, privation, Want, suf
fering. Novv what proof doet all this
furnish us, that men have immortal souls ?
If men are immortal, why do lh?y not act
like it? Surely it is reasonablt to sup
pose they would. Talk to the devotees
of iKa shining god about immoitality and
eternity, tnd they will1 laugh at you. Their
god shines with such brilliancy, that they
cannot tee or hear any thing else, for this
eclipses all beside. And look now at the
deep, intense love that has beeniwakened
afresh in the bosoms of thousands, for the
golden calf, by the reports that lave come
from California. Why, a perfect hhreii-
zy Cot the god has seized upon, and hun
dreds, nay thousands have gone, and are
still preparing to go on a pilgrimage where
their god is said to abound.; And jet
some persons who say that men have souk,
dare make insinuations about an immortal
sou, about another world, and about one
only living and true God, and about our
being under obligations to love and serve
him.' Why, they might as well lalk to
the wind. What contradicts' their sense,
they never can believe. Their god is tan
gible. They can see him, and feel him,
and thi is the onehey "go ih"j for wor
shipping, irrespective of what some say
about thut God who is a Spirit. In the
language of the poet', the w orshippers of
the golden calf say,
"Gold it Ihe strength, the soul, the beauty
most divine1 ;
A mask of gold hides all deformities i
Gold is heaven's physic, life's resiorative."
