The people of St. Joheph are aware of the fact that tho future -greatness of that city depends upon the success of this en-, terprise i of establishing this route as tho main trunk of the Great Pacific Railroad;' and the citizens of northern Kansas must not forget, that their interests . are, in a great measure, identical with the interests, ot &t. Joseph. And here let us say to our neighbors of that city, that while wc can assure you that tho people of north ern Kansas are alwa3Ts ready to do their pan, j'ouhad better get rid of your ne groes and secessionists, and then there will be nothing in the way of the Pacific Railroad taking its natural course, and nothing to prevent the speedy prosecu tion of the work. Yankees are the only men in the world who can build rajlroads but St. Joseph is not a very inviting placo for that kind of people now. Those se cessionist and negroes have been a greater obstacle to the Pacific Railroad than tho Rocky Mountains, for thej have kept away enterprise. Could the population of St. Joseph to-day, be exchanged for one third its number of live yankecs, with the assistance of our people, the cars would be running through Troy in sixty days. This road is necessary to develope the agricultural and mechanical resources of the country; it will enrich our farmers and mechanics, and enable them to estab lish and support those educational institu tions, of which we are so much, in need in the west, the importance of which wo shall take frequent occasion to remind our rea'ders in the future. Troy Patriot. Newspaper Writing. Everybody thinks it is an easy matter to write for a newspaper. And yet. few have excelled in the sort of1 composition re quired for a daily or weekly prcs3. Even clever magazinists have failed here, and none have made worse work with ''editori als" than able historians and elegant essayists except fine orators and brilliant debaters. The London Examiner has handled this topic with ability in the fol-. lowing paragraph. "Newspaper, compo sition is a distinct and difficult art. Its principle must be somewhat carefully stud ied by those who would succeed in it. The disregard of those principles is the cause of the prosiness which characterizes so much of our newspaper literature. The newspaper is not a thing to be studied scarcely one to bo rfead. It is to be glanced over. The articles, .then, must be so written as to artractand holdjattention. Processes of thought and reaiSpfrig are to be shut out ; results are lo appear.' Argu ment to be suggested rather than stated. Usually one point is enough for any arti cle. Some single nail should 13o struck fair upon the head and then left at 'once. introduction? ara a nuisance. Inferences are - always skippeb. The sentences should be short. Every word should leap wih life. Condensation should be ex treme. Subordinate thoughts should be thrown away. The object is, not to treat a subject in full, but to produce a certain effect. uAllthatis not necessary to that, effect should be discarded. He who has the nerve lo do this, witk a soul that fires with great thought, and the manliness to utter it freely, may wield a power with a pen which no scepter can rival. The ten dencies in professional life r7 tn-Aet. ,pration of style. The constant didactism 'ft the pulpit often degenerates into dif faseness. The reiteration of points at the bar, and precision of legal style, tend to produce dryness; and -repetition.
