The Burlington Gazette, in a long article,
proves the insufficiency of our present mail fa
cilities, and urges upon the people to take
measures to secure privileges equal to those
granted to other portions of the country of like
importance. We are confident that the Post
Master General has the disposition to extend
to us every facility consistent with his office,
and that we are in need of a great increase,
we all too sensibly feel. In the Iowa District,
which numbers near, if not equal with the east
in population, there is not one hundred miles
i of stage line in operation, while on the cast,
stages are run in almost every direction. We
do not mention this because we think the citi
zens of Wisconsin proper receive more than
they *re Justly entitled to —indeed, many im
^provements ought yet to be made there.
In this District, the mail from this place to
Burlington, passing through several important
towns, we have but a weekly mail, on horse
back, and that frequently fails, being one of
the contracts of A. Philleo, and there is now
more mail in this Post Office than can be ta
ken- in three weeks on horseback, a good por
tion of which has laid in the office for three
weeks, for want of sufficient means of convey
ance. This is subjecting the citizens of this
part of the country to an inconvenience which
palls loudly upon them to take measures to re
medy. Let them hold meetings, draft and
send on petitions for the establishment of mail
stages three times a week, and then we will
have no more than we are justly entitled to.
Our subscribers in the Iowa District will, we
hope, bear with us, and make all due allow
ance for the irregularity of the mail. We have
several times heard that our paper had failed
to reach several of the offices, but we will in
form our readers that every number of our pa
pers has been mailed.

the building in this place, used by the county

the Methodists as a meeting
house, was built by contribution, and that it
was designed by the contributors to be free to

Du BUQUE, (W. T.) Aug. 16, 1837.
Dear Sir:—Notwithstanding "the many let
ters I have already written since my having
settled in W isconsin, describing to the friends
and acquaintances left behind ino, the great
advantages, present and prospective, possess

Union, I have ever seen or heard of. It is true
that those who come here expecting to find
with our infant condition, a state of advance
ment which at the east, scarcely less than e.en
turies have been required to effect, must as a
matter of course be doomed to disappointment..
And yet many such there are, so profoundly
ignorant and inexperienced in regard to all the
world not embraced within the sound of their
own church bell, that they come here, and go
home again abusing us, because where yester
day the Indian was sole possessor of the soil,
the white man has not to-day completed cities,
rail-roads, and canals, such as they have pass
ed on their trip hither. And yet, supremely

occasional misrepresentations of this favored

Ht THE CONGRESSIONAL Ol.OBE &
APPENDIX.—Scnsiblo of tho deep interest
wlii'jh mum be felt throughout the Union in the
proceeding* of anew Congress, convoked by tho
new administration, to iirtiit ths extraordinary
emergencies which havo arisen since the close of
Oenaial ,IAC:CRON'S iRrm ofsci vice, tho undersigned
have already made preparation* to furnish their an
nual report in the form of a 'o\e it f.shonia i. Oi.oui:.
As these successive public,ilions comprise a full
and faithful record of nil that is dono in Coivjrcss
—sketches of tho attendant dtscusion?, with an
AI-IM:NIIX, containing the finished opeechei prepa
red by tho member* themselves—they are suited not
only to gratify the curiosity ofthe hour, to inform
the distant constituency of tho part performed by
their immediate representatives, and tho result
present demands, the maintenance of manufactures
and tho regulation of commerce. Every thing of
pecuniary interest to the government and tho na
tion will be involved in llio discussions of tho next
Congress and ii was because the President would
not havo those all-important subjects left to/Execu
tive discretion a moment btyund the iinif when
full Congress could bo summoned,' that tiie Septem
ber session was convoked. Tho machinery of gov
ernment, of geer, must continue to work but.whcn
disordered, its movements may bo driven in a wron
direction. Tho Representatives of the people are
alone competent to set all to lighlJ. No .Demo
cratic Chief Magistrate, would continue, in the con
dition of things at present existing, to substitute
Executi vo'cxpuiiiciits
for
clearly defined law spring­
ing from the public will.
