MONDAY MORNING, JUNE 5, 1854. Tbs Great Bzearstea! Our citizen* are beginning to be on tip-toe —earning the great excursion of this week. The general query is, what shall we do with this expected throng of distinguished citizens from the United States ? Being as we are out of the States, and they are more particularly the guests of the Rock Island Railroad Com pany, we do not suppose they will expect us to ■train ourselves to accomplish any tbiug more than we are able to well do through the agency of practical sense, good taste, frugal manners, And hearty frontier greetings. We will all find friends and acquaintances among the company; If not, we can soon make them ; and then let each and every one of us be prepared to do the best we can to amuse, inform and make happy and comfortable those into whose com pany we happen to tall. In our opinion, a public reception, or a reception at the city’s expense, or a general entertainment by hum-drum pro cessions, dinners, Ac., on shore, at the expense of citizens, considering the great number that will comprise the company, would be exceed ingly disgusting to the visitors, and very vul gar and village-like on our part, were we to attempt such nonsense. With the little sug gestion we threw out on Saturday, which we are happy to see the Democrat endorses, aud those contained above, we rest our views of the case for the present. The Galena Jeffersonian, in its issue of Wed nesday, has the following in regard to this mag nificent affair : “It might be reasonably expected that the Company that could, and did build the Chica go A Rock Island Railroad, 180 miles in length, in less than nineteen months, would celebrate the connection established through their instru mentality, between the Atlantic and the Missis sippi, in a fitting and appropriate manner. At a meeting of the Directors in January last, it was resolved to give the stockholders in the Road and a new hundred invited guests, an ex cursion from thence, by steamboat to St. Paul and St Anthony Kalis. To carry out the in tent of that resolution, the officers of the Com pany in Chicago and along the line, ably as sisted on the river and at Rock Island by Col. Mix, the untiring agent, have been industrious ly employed in making arrangements calculat ed to heighten the enjoyment of the occasion, and gratify the curiosity of their guests. The party leave Chicago, Monday, June 5. At Rock Island they will find at the landing. five of the best steamboats in the Galena A St Louis and Galena A St. Paul trades, upon which they can embark. Touching at all the principal towns along the river, they will reach St. Paul on th* Bth, and after a delay of tw o days to be spent in fishing, sight-seeing, Ac.. they will return by the same route. Itiscsti mated that at least one thousand persons will accept of the invitation to be of the party. For their entertainment nothing has been spared that the country affords. Whatever in the way of fishing and game that money will buy, will be furnished in Western profusion. The hunt •** and fishers are now out laying in supplies for the great occasion. The Rock Island Railroad Company foots all the bills. It is in the programme to take each Kest at his own house, whether in New York, ■ton or Maine, and after having feasted, fet ed and “excursioned” him to return him safe sound, ui good order and well conditioned to the shadow of his own vine and fig tree, wholly at the Company’s expense. The entertainment “ * w “ o1 * “ * conception worthy of Farnham fir Sheffield, the builders of C. A R. I. Road, and we doubt not that under their care, it wili be long remembered as the most magnificent festival of the age. *ll. the object of the excursion, on the part of its projectors, is not so much pleasure merely, as a desire to make a thousand more !*»■, men of capital and influence acquaint ed with the enchanting beauty, the boundless resources and the unexampled prosperity oftbe Great West. They hope to be able by showing our vast and fertile jrairies, our productive mines,’our magnificent rivers, our flourishing towns and our thriving and industrious people, to remove the suspicion which in the minds of eastern men has attached to Western railroads and all other Western investments; and that hope, unless we are false prophets, will be real ized in its fullest extent. Still Hard ox Douglas. Dr. Ray, of the Galsna Jefferson, is still aiming bis keen shafts of polished satire at his democratic brother, Senator Douglas. In concluding an editorial urging measures to secure the free navigation of the St Lawrence, he hits the Senator thus: “Montaigne, in his Essays, relates that ‘Al buquerque, viceroy in the Indies for Emanuel, king of Portugal, in an extreme peril of ship wreck, took a young boy upon his shoulders, for this only end,—that in the society of their common danger, his innocency might serve to protect him, and to recommend him to the di jin* favor, that they might get safe to shore.' The example of that leader should not be lost upon the Illinois Senator. With the Nebraska bill as a burden, heavier than Albequerque's aim, upon his shoulders, he needs, before strik ing out again for the haven upon which his eye is fixed, some countervailing buoy like the free navigation of the St. Lawrence, to save him from the political destruction that all men now foresee. Respect to the Distinguished Dead.—The City Council of St. Louis held a special meet ing and passed appropriate resolutions upon the occasion of the death of Col. A. B. Chamber?-, late of the St. Louis Republican—the oldest editor of the city. The following are the first fend second resolutions: That the lots by death of a distinguished man is, at all times, a calamity, but the loss of ■uch a man, at such a time, and in the very meridian of his usefulness, is singularly unfor tunate, irreparable in its nature, and the sever est blow that our community could have re ceived.

Chambers we feel that St. Lonia has lost one of her most use . * ®!® aen *; * man who shrank from no respon sibility when the interests of the city were con cerned, and to whom, perhaps more than toanv other man, she is indebted for the proud posi tion she now occupies. .

We depot presented a crowed mass of people, a large portion of whom were of the gentler sex, •oa the shoots with which they received their honored guest were long and deafening.— State pS' Our fellow-citizen, Mr. Newton returned home from the East by the Nominee on Satur day. He confirms previous good reports of Minnesota prospects at Washington. The New Scandanavian Church in the north-east part of the city, is progressing rap idly.

The Trustees of liamline University meet on the 9th inst., and at this session will determine the location of the Institution. Seventh street is to have side walks from Jackson to the Market House. Why not ex tend the improvement to Broadway? All persons who are in tho habit of throwing filth and dirt along the bluff beyond Bench street, or depositing nny nuisance in that vicinity, can take the alternative of dis continuing the practice or paying a visit to ’Squire Simons’ office, one of these pleasant mornings. Marshal Miller says so! Unfortunate. —The Packet Company appears particularly unfortunate this season. The Nominee, on her last trip up, broke a shaft at Guttenburg, and was compelled to make the balance of the way on one wheel. This, with her former loss of time by a similar accident; the breaking of a crank by the Royal Arch, which took her out of the trade sc vcral days, and the sinking of the Dr. Franklin, is more than one line of boats can well stand in the course of six weeks, and still fulfill the promise of giving us a daily arrival. About Fisn.—lt is said by the doctors that fresh fish is an unwholesome diet in warm wea ther, and we believe it. But the temptation to eat fresh trout, just from the brook, is so great that we fear we will be unable to ol>ey doctor’s instructions whenever our good friends have the kindness to remember us in this particular, or w henever we can find time to hook them ourselves. Some days since, before the weath er became so much “fired up,” our thoughtful neighbor, Mr. Jos. Daniels, from that unfailing resorvoir of the spotted tribe, Ilay creek near Red Wing, despatched us half a dozen of (he largest sized trout we have ever seen iu this country, which we and the folks at home also despatched in another direction, in short order, with many thanks to the kind donor. Our friend,we hope, will consider our acknowledge ments none the less sincere because they have come late. When a printer turns farmer, there is no knowing what he w ill acomplish. Mr. 11. I. Vance of St. Paul typographical celebrity, is now attending to his farm on White Bear Lake, with as much earnestness as he ever attended to types, presses, and proofs about the Pioneer office. Of mornings aud evenings, he aud his neighbor, Mr. V. B. Barnum, find recreation in drawing from the limpid waters of that bcauti lake, some of the “oldest inhabitants” who have remained undisturbed for generations.— They handed over to us a few days since a pike which weighed from twelve to fifteen pounds.— It was full sufficient to supply the whole neigh borhood about the corner of Tenth nnd Canada streets, and plenty of fragments left. Our friends out at White Bear know how to fish, and how to dispose of their spoil. We have only to add in the fish line, or con cerning fishermen whose lines have been cast in pleasant places, that our friends Roh rer, Walker and Dr. Marsh went to Winona the other day and made terrible havoc among the trout of Rolling Stone brook, having caught several hundred during their stay. It is said “a rolling stone gathers no moss,” but from this Rolling Stone, trout arc certainly gathered iu unbclieveable quantities. The fine mess our friends had the kindness to forward ui by tfce Excelsior, were past being fresh and sound when they reached here. But no matter!

Refreshingly Cooi..— The Ice Cream and Ladies’ Refreshment Department of the Ap" polio Saloon was opened in grand summer dress on Saturday evening. Mr. Rauch and lady had been preparing for several days for the recep tion of their first customers of the season, and the rooms did not disappoint the expectations of the company when thrown open.

Mr. 8., as is well known, has bees long connected, intimately, with' the democratic party. Nor do we understand that the connection has ever been withdrawn, or his fidelity to party called in question. In an able speech made by him on the occason to which we have already re ferred, he is reported in the Tribune to have said, that if the time should ever come when he might be called upon to choose between Stephen Arnold Douglas and Wm. H. Seward, as President, he would vote for the latter; and that he would rather die than cast a vote for the repeal of the Missouri Compromise. The enthusiastic cheers that followed these remarks showed plainly enough that the sympathies and hearts of the people were with the speaker.

Correspondence of the Ncw-York Tribune. Soule and Calderon. l’aris, Wednesday, May 3, 1854. A series of ridiculously untrue articles have lately appeared in the London Times, written by it's Madrid correspondent, iu explanation of the proceedings of Mr. Soule on the Black War rior affair. Tho facts of the case are as follows, and are derived from a source which place their authenticity beyond question: On the arrival of the special messenger, Mr. Winslow, with instructions, Mr. Soule prepared and sent to the Spanish Minister of Foreign Af fairs, Mr. Calderon de la Barca, a very calm, clear and firm demand, containing two propo sitions: first, an indemnity ; secondly, guaranty for the future, by the appointment of a diplo matic agent at Havana, with powers to meet these cases. This was delivered to Mr. Calderon, with a request for a prompt response, but not specify ing the time which was allowed to make the response. At the end of 24 hours, Mr. Soule, receiving no reply, another note was sent, in substance the same as the first, and adding that if at the end of 24 hours a response was not received, he should take it for granted that the Spanish Government approved the action of the Cuban authorities, and they should act ac cordingly. This was delivered by the Secre tary, Mr. I’erry. to M. Calderon in person.— When M. Calderon had finished reading the note, Mr. Perry coolly drew out his watch and said : “ Your excellency will please observe that it is now 12 o'clock ; at 12 o’clock to-morrow precisely, I shall be here for a reply.” “ Holy Virgin ! young man, what do you mean ?” exclaimed the minister. “ Holy week, and a Sunday intervening, it is impossible !” (It was holy week in Madrid—a season devoted to meditation nnd cards.) Mr. Ferry left. Before the termination of the twenty-four hours Mr. Soule received response from Mr. Calderon, stating that it was out of the power of the government to act in the mat ter, inasmuch as they had received no official intelligence from Cuba to guide them in tbeir negotiations, and adding that the manner of Mr. Soule clearly indicated that the govern ment of the United States was much more anx ious for a difficulty than for a settlement. To this Mr. Soule responded, again reiterat ing his first demands, aud adding, rather im pertinently it must be admitted, that lie was satisfied that full information had been received from Cuba, and that in reference to the United States, they sought only a prompt settlement of the difficulty in order to preserve the peace ful relation which existed between the two coun tries ; that the continued insults which the Cu ban authorities had offered the United States had so exasperated the people that a prompt settlement would lie found the surest guaranty of continued peaceful relations. At this stage of the proceedings, the Queen sent for Mr. Soule, who, it may as well be here repeated, is in favor at the palace, while on the contrary, Calderon is hated by her. Her maj esty, who indulges in very strong diet, into which brandy and cigars enter largely, and who is not very choice in her language, wished to know of Soule what the row meant between him and Calderon. On Mr. S. stating the case, she stamped her foot violently on the floor, and said that Calderon was a d d fool; that she wished Soule would manage the affair so as to get her rid of him, and she advised him to press him hard /” It is generally thought in diplo matic circles in Paris, that between Mr. Soule and the Queen, Calderon will be brought to a conclusion—of some kind. Boston, May 27—1 P. M. Burns examination has been postponed to Monday. The funeral of Deputy Marshal Batchelder will take place to-morrow. Much sympathy is expressed for his fate.

They should baud together as one man against it, and systematically scout from their confidence every man who has in any nay sold himself to do this infamous thing.— To those members of Congresswho so gallantly fought this deep villainy to the end we tender our most hearty thanks. They deserve a statue imperishable even to the tooth of time. It should l>e erected in the hearts of the People, to endure as long as the tide of human life flows on.

During the late thirty-four hour session in the House, on the Nebraska bill, Hon. E. B. Washburne answered to his name eighty timet in succession never leaving for a single meal or closing his sves in sleep I— Galena Gatetle The Mbueseta Packet Ceaspaay. Under this head, the Galena Jeffcrsooian no tices the feet, that a public meeting was held a few days since at Hudson, Wis., to denounce the officers of the Packet Company for not run ning their boats into the port of Hudson on every trip. The Jeffersonian also ably vindi cates those officers from the foul aspersions of the Hudson Journal, which, in noticing the meeting, alluded to them in all kinds of harsh terms and wholesale abuse, calling them “swin dlers,” Ac. We have not had the privilege of seeing the number of the Hudson Journal to which the Jeffersonian alludes—in fact we rarely meet with a copy of the paper, as its editor some time since, declined ail exchange with us,which he had a perfect right to do; believing, as he undoubtedly did, and still docs, that bis sheet is of far more value than ours. Wc never quarrel w'ith men, particularly editors, for set ting whatever value they may choose upon the product of their brains; albeit, we may some times feel in a humor to have a little merri ment over members of the caste editorial to which the Hudson man undoubtedly belongs. Me, however, beard of the doiugs over at Hudson, and tried some days since to get hold of a copy of the Journal containing the attack npou the officers of the Packet company. The Jeffersonian, although it does well to notice the slanders heaped upon these gentlemen, need not have taken so much pains to vindicate their reputation from an attack coming from where it did. M’e all understand the matter here. It is St. Paul tho lludsonians are after not the Packet Company. Most people who have visited or resided in the “rural districts” of any country, have seen the sight of two rams, belonging to the same flock of sheep, at a certain season of the year, becoming very belligerent toward each other. Finally, one finds the other has the mastery of him by nature as well as by energy and physi cal prowess. The vanquished will then retire in the worst of humor, and commence hutting his brains out against a gate post, or a stump, or a tree. In fact, we have heard that the bel ligerent propensities of this class of small mind ed and weak bodied sheep are sometimes so great, that they have been known to keep on hutting until they had worn their heads off as far hack as the stump of their tails, which final appendage wi.s still wont to keep up a kind of warlike forword and backward motion for many hours. Other places adjacent to St. Paul, have here tofore tried the thickness and durability of their craniums against trees, rocks, and what ever else offered, after they had become satis fied that she was impregnable. It has remained for Hudson to vent her spleen toward our growing city by commencing a most unjust warfare upou the very steamboat men,who have really done more to make her what she is than she ever did herself Let the Hudson rams heave and tug, and hatter their brains as much as they may! M'c arc inclined lo think the Packet company and St. Paul also, will live through it all. Men who have been running steamboats up to Hudson, at an expense from Prescott and back of about eighty dollars the trip, while their receipts averaged about twen ty or thirty, merely to accommodate the peo ple of that region, will be very apt to stay away altogether when they are denounced us “swin dlers.” That's the way human nature “sticks out” all over the world. On Thursday, Capt. Morehouse, feeling that the pure-minded lludsonians desired to have uo further intercourse with “swindlers,” landed their mail bags at St. Paul. lie lias heretofore delivered them at their landing, although bav no contract to do so. We only regret that Still water also suffers. Ineffable Meanness or Gross Ignorance.— Some writer in the St. Anthony Express gives what he calls his first impressions ol St. Paul, after the following unjust aud captious fashion. He is cither a very foolish and ignorant man, or a very mean one—foolish and ignorant in saying we have no churches or schools in St. Paul, or meau, knowing the fact, to publish to the world so base a falsehood. We defy him or any other caviling faultfinder to point to a five year old town anywhere in the United States, that has equalled St. Paul in the rapid devel opment of all the elements incident to refine ment and the cultivation of intellectual, moral and religious tastes and sentiments. Here is w hat he says : St. Paul. —lt has the limits, the name and internal government of a city,but walk through it—view it from an eminence, look upon it from a distance—survey it from any point of view, and what is it? Where are its long line of lofty and compact dwellings—its sumptuous eccle-iastical and scholastic edifices—its mag nificent institutions of Art and Science and A musement? Where its bristling turrets and glittering spires—where its rush paved streets and chequered sidewalks—its elegant veran dahs and massive marble porticoes andcollon ades ? Alas, they are no where to be met with —they exist only in dreemi of the distant fu ture. Where, let me ask again, are its peri patic exhibitions of female grace, beauty and fashion—where are its meteoric cabs—its rum bling laggard omnibuses, where, in short, are the features which, as a city we might fairly expect should characterize it! Echo gives the answer— Where ? Any village, situated in a region, possessing rosources for development adequate to the continued promotion of prosperity and popula tion may be regarded as a city in embryo.— Here we may witness stir, bustle, and a gen eral absorption in the concerns of business.— But here we do not expect to find the elegant mansion, the superb church or the sumptuous school bouse. The means of the inhabitants are too circumbscribcd—and their numbers too limited to justify tbe investment of their cap ital in this wise. Indeed it would l>e the most foolisli and absurd cx.ravngancc for them to do so. The Great God w hom we all worship is just as effectually propitiated in the humble log church as in the gorgeous and stately chap el—the seeds of science sown from the rude, unplastcred school-house, will produce fruits e qually luxuriant and abundant with those scat tered from the balls of the State Academy— aud comfort is just as much comfort surround ed by the well chinked walls of the simple log cabin, as when embraced between walls of mu” ble or brick. In its incipiency enterpiisa f* rude. This we expect. It deals not in the luxuries, but contents itself with the necessa ries and essentials. It is frugal. It pro vides only that which is contributive to life, health, and its grand aim, money-getting. “Put money in my purse”—is the precept of its constant self inculcation. Any thing beyond this, is deemed superfluous and non-essential. But a city wc have been ever in the habit of regarding as an epitome of life—aTnuscum of the arts—the Academy of Science—tbe Rome of Religion—and the V\ orkshop and Granary of trade. We have been taught to regard it as presenting the acme of civilization, as illustrat ing the highest perfection of the times—the ut- j most attainment of comfort and elegance. Is it at all strange, then, that we have been surprised, disappointed, astonished at the ap pearance and character of St. Paul. Slender in its population—filthy in its street—desti tute of all the complete and elegant provisions for mental, moral and religious culture—Low j could any one be guilty of the folly of suspect ing it lo be a city. Though St. Paol is destin ed for better things. Less ambition would have attracted for her greater esteem but the want of this would not prevent the achieve ment of those grand results which must ever follow the efforts of intelligent industry and en terprise, such as have in the short space of five years built her up from nothing to what she is —a stirring, thriving town of near five thous and inhabitants. And in view of this, we may readily overlook the little folly which her im patient ambition prompted when she assumed the title of city. B. To this gross libel, the editor of the Express very justly replies in our behalf as follows, for which act our neighbor will please except the thanks of St. Paul: We would say to B. that however right his strictures upon St. Paul journal to which he was indebted for his knowledge of Minnesota, giving but a partial account of the Territory, he is far from doing justice to our capital. M'e might safely challenge hint to produce an in stance of more rapid increase of population and all the facilities of education—often elegant and costly—places of religious worship, compar ing favorably with (hose of any town of equal population iu the East—indeed of the whole circle of creature comforts, elegances and re finements, than the history of St. Paul exibits. It is not singular, however, that he should he disappointed in the city of St. Paul, being used to the more finished cities of New England.— But he should remember that age will give pol ish to St. Paul, as it has done to the more an cient towns of his ualive State. We are glad to see, by the notices pub lished to-day, that the Street Commissioners are going ahead with the side-walk improvements. All the principal streets leading to the Market House are to he planked. Mr. r. A. J. Baker is about to erect an imposing brick building for business purposes, on Fourth Street, opposite the court house. fpS~ The country now begins to lock finely. The grow ing weather of the past few days Ims started crops forward with great rapidity. Worthy of Imitation. The citizens of the Third M’ard are busy putting down their side walks on St. Anthony street, and clearing the street of all dirt aud rubbish.

M'e presume several bands ol music will accompany the party, and there are three mag nificent halls in the capitol. Sonic of the fledglings about town, who have never yet had an opportunity of trying the strength of their pinions at soaring forth into the heavenly fields of oratory, are anxious to spread themselves before the railroad men next week at a public dinner.

The Murder ox the Minnesota Belle. —lt will be remembered we stated some days since, that a murder had been committed on board the Minnesota Belle, on her last trip up, and that the murderer had been allowed to escape. It ap pears be has since been apprehended. The Ga lena Jeffersonian narrates the following inci dents, commencing immediately alter the deed of throwing Uox overboard had transpired : “ Harold, [the murderer.] was immediately secured by direction ofCapt. Humberstone, and o 1 the arrival of the boat at M’Gregor’s Land j ing, it was tbe intention of flic Captain to dc j liver the prisoner up to tbe proper authorities, j but there being no magistrate at hand to at tend to the matter, he was carried across to Prairie du Chicn, and offered to the authorities who refused to receive him. The Captain, feel ing that he had done his duty then released him. Harold remained on the boat awhile longer and | finally left at some point near La Crosse, to I which place he proceeded on foot, w here he re mained until the arrival ot the steamer Editor, the next boat up the river. Previous to the throwing overboard of Cox, Millvihill. his bro ther-in-law, the person who had inflicted the blow upon Harold, fearful of being injured by the latter, lind secretly left the boat at a wood yard below Clayton City, where he waited for the Editor, upon which, when she arrived, he got. While on the he learned the sad fate of Cox. Soon after leaving La Crosse he recognized Harold, the murderer, among the deck passengers ; be having just come on boaid. Harold also saw Mill vihill and attempted to leave the boat at Montiville. the next landing; but Mill vihill tried to detain him, wishing to have him arrested at St. Paul. Harold, how ever, succeeded in escaping from Mulvihill.and while the latter was stepping ba.-k to see the Captnin, the boat pushed off, aud he did not succeed in landing; until she had gone a tn.le o: more up the river. Harold, in the meantime, had started from Montiville in a northerly di rection, which, when lie was out of sight of the village, lie changed for a south-easterly course. Mulvibill, immediately upon reaching Mont ville again, went to the office of Geo. Batche’- der. Esq., and made the proper complaint, upon which a warrant was issued for the arrest of Harold, and after twelve hours’ search, the of ficers succeeded in finding him. The Minnesota Belle, luckily, shortly after the arrest, appeared at the landing, on her w ay down from St. Paul, The Captain, mate, and others who were con versant with the facts, came to the office, and were examined. In the course of the examina tion. it appearing that the offence was commit ted on the lowa side of the river, and within tha jurisdiction of that State, the magistrate suspended his proceedings ; but l»cing unwil ling that a crime of such magnitude should pass unnoticed, with commendable promptness went with Harold on board the Belle, crossed over to lowa, and delivered him to the author ities at Clayton City, in the county where the offence was committed. The prisoner volunta rily accompanied Mr. Batchelder, so that no force was used, and no actual restraint was placed upon his liberty on his passage, though his movements were closely watched. On ar riving at Clayton City, Esq. Douglas was met at the landing, and, as a proper complaint was made, a warrant wns issued, and Harold arrest ed ; —the boat remaining to give to tbe officers an opportunity to give their testimony. The testimony was direct and to the point, clearly identifering the prisoner as the person w ho threw Cox into the river, and show ing that he not only threatened him before the act, but after wards boasted of having done it. He will with out doubt be bound over to trial. •‘ Harold represents himself as belonging at St. Louis and as bound to the foot of Lake Pepin, to come down on a raft.” Hon.
