HAWKEY
HAWK-EYE AND TELEGRAPH.
•0b. Wc will merely say, as we do not
like to utake comparisons, that the Daily
and Weekly Hawk-Eye and Telegraph, by
the uniting of the two offices, will have a
veiy large circulation. Upon comparison
of the two lists, we find, what we did not
suppose was the case, vis: that there were
very few individuals who took both papers,
and therefore uniting the offices gives a
circulation very little short of what the
two were separately. We can therefore
ttty, to those wishing to advertise in South
ern Iowa, that our circulation is VKRY
LARGE. Our Daily paper has a very fine
list. Our carriers throw it into every part
of the city and to almost every body. But
with all, the iiat was not so large but that
the last three days have added half a score
of names that were not before on either
list.
ISP* We admit the address of Gen.
Morgan, former editor of the Telegraph,
to the patrons and readers of that pancr,
to our columns with some regret. For biui
we entertain a high opinion. His edito
rial course has been able, high-toned, and
uniformly courteous. In the purchase it
has been our wish to do nothing that would
interfere with his interests. And we are
pretty sure wc have not. We purchased
the paper because, if we did not, it would
be sold to the first outsider that came along
willing to buy. Its publication had been
Bu8peudcd. Believing that by uniting it
with the Hawk-Eye we could do what had
not before been accomplished, sustaiu a
Daily paper without Binking every thing
in a year or two, we made the purchase.—
Whether we are to succeed or not remairs
to be seen.
Under these circumstances, standing in
the position wo do, we regret first that
there should be any feeling between the
editor and the stockholders, and second,
that these matters of difference could not
all hare been settled in some other way,
and if no other save through the paper,
that an occasion should have been em
braced before it came into our hands. On
one hand stockholders complain that they
have bled freely—that they will bleed no
more. On the other hand, as will be seen,
complaint is made by the editor on several
"counts," all of which the public know
little about. All this, and the existence
of this state* of affairs, is no way charge
able to us. We had nothing to do with
it, and we do not conceive it exactly in or
der that our columns should be used for
the discussion of it.
We have purchased the materials and
"good will" of the Daily and Weekly Tel
egraph in good faith. And we got them
as we believe, because our offer was the
best that was made. And as we conceive,
we are entitled to the good will without
reservation.
To the patrons and readers^of. the Tele
graph, Daily and Weekly, very little need
be said. The two papers have occupied
almost identically the same ground on po
litical questions. The present proprietors
will make strenuous efforts to deserve the
support of its old patrons and readers.—
The Daily will be issued in the morning,
and will contain the latest intelligence that
can be had, up to the hour of publication.
Our first object will be to make it a vehicle
for early and reliable information.
While we have political feelings and
preferences and expect to express them in
dependently, we do not feel that we
shall print a partizan paper. There is no
call, at present, for any such publication.
Old land-marks and old parties have
been obliterated and crushed out. The
two great parties that have heretofore di
vided the country, exist only in name. In
the re-formiug of political elements, it is
somewhat difficult to tell exactly how
things are to shape themselves. But for
the present there is but one question that
agitates the political world. That ques
tion is slavery. We unhesitatingly de
clare ourselves in favor of resisting the
further aggressions of slavery, and opposed
to its extension over any more free territo
ry. Wo would confine it to its present
bounds, giving it no more rights and priv
ileges than are vouchsafed in the constitu
tion.
But there is little call for a long intro
ductory essay upon political or other topics,
our paper must stand upon its merits.
We to-day send our Daily to the sub
scribers to tho Tri-Wcekly Hawk-Eye,
hoping that they will find in its enhanced
value, a consideration fully equal to the
difference in price.
But all who do not wish to receive it,
will inform the carriers at once. And
those subscribers who get it by mail wil!
please, if desiring to discontinue, Wturnthe
first number, without delay. 1

BURLINGTON, IOWA WEDNESDAY. JULY 4, 1855.
The Case of the Negro Man Dick.
The case of the supposed fugitive
"Dick," turned out very differently from
what was expected. He was taken to Jail
on Saturday, on the affidavit of a rnau who
professed to be the son-in-law of the owner
—who claimed that Dick was at work for
hiin at the time he left, and that the horse
he rode to Burlington was bis horse.
Dick was committed to Jail to await
further examination on Tuesday. In lhe
meantime, excitement was high. It was
the first arrest that had ever taken place in
Burlington under the fugitive act. A cer
tain portion of our citizens were proud to
know they were above the petty weakness,
incident to womeu and abolitionists, of be
lieving that a negro was a human, or had
any right or title to life and liberty. Such
were very anxious to hare it distinctly un
derstood that they were sound—and iu or
der to make it clear, a few such were wil
ling to do for this slave owner and breeder
what no Southern gentleman ever docs for
himself, i. c. they were willing to engage
personally in the business of restoring
this negro man to Missouri servitude, and
so very anxious were they for a smile from
the supposed owner of Dick, that they
I were willing to fight, without compensa
tion and without solicitation.
On the other side were a very large ma
jority, whose hearts beat iu sympathy with
the negro, for the world will always sym
pathise with the bibed or quadruped, that
is struggling fur the inalirit tide rights of
"life" and "liberty." Hut there was no
one willing to resort to violence—there
was nu one desirous of nixkin j- open re
sistence to the exeeiuiou of the law—or if
theix v,as "I would" wax left to wait on
"I dare not."
But Tuesday catne. Mr. Commissioner
Frazee and his court assembled at Marion
llall. Messrs. United States Marshal
Funk and City Marshal Endsley were en
gaged iu seating the crowd and keeping
out those who could not find seats. After
some preliminary arrangements had been
made, the first witness, the sou of the
claimant was called, and at once declared
that the negro there present WAS NOT the
slave Dick, was not the property of his
father. Thereupon one tremendous shout
went up from the crowd, much to the hor
rorof our worthy Commissioner and against
the dignity of his court.
The claimant's lawyer then attempted
to retain the negro for horse-stealing, but
could prove nothing.
The termination of this affair places the
chivalrous gentleman who swore to the
identity of this negro, and his associates
who voluntarily or for pay, with arms in
their hands and threats, without color of
law or right, arrested Dr. James and kept
him in the street in the manner represent
ed, in a very awkward position. Huppo.se
the negro or the Dr. had resisted this sum
mary and illegal way of depriving them of
their liberty, and taken the life of some
gentleman? Is there any law that would
condemn them And when thoy engage
in another piratical expedition, in violation
of all law, State aud National, they had
better be sure they have got the right ne
gro. Or at any rate ouc that will not
shoot.

on the merits of the fugitive slave law.—
It is now proper to say, in justice to the
proprietors of that excellent public house,
that the fight did not occur at or about the
house, but nearly a square off. And so
far from being ou the merits of the fugi
tive slavo law it was a free whiskey fight.
AGAIN.—It is said Dr.
Taylor, of Cleveland, has succeeded in the
production of a brilliant light and iutensc
heat by the decomposition of water. The
expense of the gas will be next to nothing,
ft not less This light has been just dis
covered or just on the point of discovery
for the last ten years. Now it has certain
ly been discovered by Dr. Taylor, who is
about to take out a patent. It will proba
bly be cheaper than day light!

is called to the card
of the above Company to be found in
another column. Persons desirous to in
sure against losses by fire, or the perils of
navigation, would do well to avail them
selves of the offers of the "Commercial
Insurance Company of St. Louis." A
large proportion of the gentlemen compo
sing the Directory are well known to most
of our business men, and will serve as a
sufficient guaranty that the Company is
safe and reliable, and thai its business will
be prudently and honorably conducted.

three to four hours before it can be re

Des Moines River Improvement.
Our neighbors of Keokuk, aud some of
our exchanges along the Des Moines river
arc quite sensitive when any thing is said
in regard to its navigation. To be 3ure,
they all admit that just now, and for the
last year, the channel has hardly been wet.
But ordinarily, they say, it is a respecta
ble river, and can, when the present§lack
water improvement is finished, be naviga
ted the whole year, save when impeded by
ice. If the river ever is navigable, the
locks and dams should be kept out. But
if, as wc suppose, only once in a great
while it can be thus used, for a short time,
the improvement is very well, as it will
afford some water power to be used for
manufacturing and other purposes. But
the facilities it will afford, for carrying off
the products of the country, will be noth
ing to speak of. So we think, without
wishing to deprec'ate the importance of
the improvement.

A Dry Time Coming.
The Iowa Liquor Law will go into ope
ration on Sunday next, the first of July.—
A pretty general acquiescence in the stat
ute will doubtless follow, but there will
be some violation of its provisions, which
its peculiar advocates should be prepared
to protect, so far as practicable. Among
the first to raise the voice of complaint
and alarm will be that very small band of
Pharisaical patriots aud political philoso
phers who always have the "Law and the
Constitution" on their lips, and are horror
struck with any apparent violatiou of the
statutes of the same. The casual observer
will not fail to notice this distinction under
the new Liquor Law.
In this connection the public will be
pleased to learn that our elever and accom
modating County Judge—in order to meet
in time all the exigencies of the new law—
has gone to the Atlantic Cities to purchase
an extensive stock of Liquors for the use
of his official Agency, which, in the ab
sence of all competition, is expected to do
an cxteusive trade. We understand the
Judge, exercising that wise discrimination
for which he is so distinguished, has ex
amined the whole arcana of Liquordom in
search of the best and most popular brands,
and we predict that he will buy an assort
ment of Brandies, Gius, Whiskeys, Wines,
and those other more delicate and fashion
able beverages suitable for tbe warmer sea
son, such as has never been heard of west
of the Mississippi. The Agency will be

"The fair is to close with an equestrial

plays the greatest skill and dextsrity in ri

will be awarded—to the second best twenty

anticipate an interesting competition and
this will be among the pleasant features of

We admire a graceful equestrian. That
young ladies are able "to set" and manage
a horse with ease, is.an accomplishment
eertaiuly. But when they consent to en
ter a gladitorial ring, exhibiting their
graces, bone and muscles, for the mastery,
along side of blood horses, short horns,
ffierinoe-t, shanghais and berkshines, we
cannot say that it increases our respect for
their good sense or modesty, however we
might admire their agility.

The Transfer of tho Telegraph. Other*, were at lenal solhoient to r-'nj roscy
The old readers of the '-Telegraph" have, Miuro moments nthtt-ed me. But
aright to hour, and perhaps dcsiio to hoar, vT h'v
from its Editor as to the causes which li tve
dissolved then long connection. A few
words roust suffico for the purpose in hand.
The Telegraph was the pioneer in news
paper progress in this State—being the first
to Lunch out with a mammoth sheet—the
first to usher in the era of tri-weckly and dai
ly issues. It was most liberally sustained
from the bjginnim—a generous nnd partial
public extended towards it at all times
a most
kindly encouragement still, iheexfcnses of
establishing such an enterprisand the pains
which were bestowed in ordt-r to ike it not
only nn honor to tbe city, but the best repre
sentative of its growing interests which could
be sent abroad, unavoidably brought in their
train a series of pecuniary ombarrnsincnta—
cmbarrasments which finally eventuated in
the sale of the office to (supposed) J'riends,
at a sum approximating one-third ot its value,
leaving the original proprietors still largely
in arrears. It was tho understanding that
under which be acted. Still there was no
abatement in the efforts of the Editor to make
the paper all that its readers might desire—
no giving up the hope that tbe paper v ould
yet live to pay its debts, and that he should
yet live to realize the fond hopes with which
he had entered upon bis duties. But, one day,
greatly to the astonishment of the stockhold
ers—greatly to the mortification of the edit
or—and greatly to the injury of the paper,
"the wholo Telegraph office" was advertised
for sale! For months this ill-advised, exe
crable, self-throat-cutting, clap-board-look
ing advertisement, was kept banging at the
editorial head of the paper. Such a step as
this had the Very singular effect to make all
sensible persons beliove that tho paper was
"as good as dead"—distrust was ths natural
consequence among the old patrons of the
paper, nnd others were deterred from tnking
hold. It was difficult, under such circum
stances, to summon up spirit enough to un
dertake the task of producing a readable sheet
—still, hoping for the best, and feeling keen
ly alive to the interests of friends who were
standing in the breach which seemed to bo
impending, tbe editor continued to bear tho
accumulating mortifications and misfortunes
with his best philosophy, and to labor dili
gently at his vocation—with what success the
readers of the paper can determine for them
selves. Time went on—the beggarly adver
tisement, in all the splendor of its imbecili
ty, still loomed up like a cabbage leaf in a
storm—but nobody bought—no body offered
to buy—nobody could be induced to buy—
and finally, without notice to the stock hold
ers, or anybody else who could nvert the
doom, the Actuary took upon himself, "the
responsibility" of terminating the existence
of the Telegraph, not even allowing it time
to say its prayers, or to bid adieu to its read
ers! And it has been thus that I am
now reduced to the necessity of singing the
"Swan Song" of my fondest oreation, and
the five year's idol of my heart, in columns
that are strangers to my voice, and through
which my pen has never made its way before.
Finding that no one would purchase tho
office at anything like its value, I finally
proposed to lease the establishment on terms
which would have mado tho stockholders
perfectly secure,and in the end have increased
the value of the concern, and at the same
time would have given mo an ppportunity,
and a certain one, of paying all ihe duos of
the office—(the only object for which 1 have
labored for years past, denying myself and
family many of the ordinary comforts of
lile, nnd to which end I have lived aud la
bored for the last year and a half upon a sal
ary that, after taking out interest which I
have been paying on debts, left me scarcely
a dollar a day)—BUTTHIS WAS DENIED ME—A
request which all fair thinking people will
concede was, under the circumstances,
a right which was due me. I did not
ask the stock holders to give me their stock,
alt ough several had manifested an indiffer
enoe as to whether it wus ever returned to
them or not—I only asked them to give me
an opportunity to make use of the materials,
and to add to the valuo of the same, aud
consequently to the value of their stock—a
proposition which I know to have been ac
ceptable to many of them—but the actuary
decided tho proposition "out of order"
