Wo YeKterday saw a lot tor from Mr. Eaton,
Engineer of tho Keokuk and Fort Dea Moine*
Railroad, addressed to Mr. Lighten, of our
place, advising him of the fact that an ar
en i had been rna.ilo with capitalists in
New York for the purchase of tho iron for
the first division of the road from this place
to Bentonsport. The purchase h.uj I men
made with the BoncUi of the City of Keokuk,
thus leaving the entire ftuhscriptionaud cred
it of the Road to he applied to the prepara
tion of the work for the rails.
This arrangement renders the construction
of the Road n sure thinp, without any risk
of delay or emharra^ snient, nnd therefore
furnishes the strongest inducements for th"
prompt payment of installment* l»v the pres
ent stockholders, and for additional sub
scriptions of stock at this place, and along
the lino of the Road.
No effort should be spared by those interest
ed, to push on the work now to a speedy
completion at the earliest practicable time,
and we trust that not only the officers and
stockholder*, hut all the citizens of our
place, nnd of the ontire Valley, vrill render
the enterprise all the uid aud comfort iu their

A couple of noble Kentuckian? were com

District, and as the custom was, went round
the country together, attending all kind* of
gHtht:ririgs, making Erpeeches, cracking jokes,
drinking liquor, in the day time and frolick
ing and dancing at night.
A brother of Urant Davie was one of the
candidates on tho occasion, and was entirely

glances of triumph beamed from his eyes at
the evident delight of the dancers, as thev

Davis was almost reduced to despair—h s
