A Trip to the Co. Seat. —Last Monday
in company with Elwell of the Korth Star,
we found ourself occupying a comfortable ve
hicle, and travelling towards the Co. Seat at
at such rate of speed as one of Smith’s best
horses deemed adapted to his comfort and our
own. The road was much better than we ex
pected and we arrived at the New Capitol at
10 a, M.,aml proceeded to form an acquain
tance with its men oi note and objects ofinter
tst. An easy ride of six miles throngh the
woods, with the frashness of color and beauty
which the forest always wears in Spring-time
prepared tig to be pleased w ith anything that
was reasonable.
Ihe grounds selected for the County Seat
are very pleasantly situated on tlio slope of a
hill running down to the road, while a fine
little brook furnishes a never failing supply of
water. The County Offices and Officers are at
present located in a log house, and they, that
is the Officers, though not very loud in their
rejoicing at the change, all wore that look of
seres uy which is an indication of calm con
tent.
Ihe Conrt Houpr is a not very ambitious
architectural structure. It was simply got „ p
° r ' prtaont occasion, and rather loosely
the amount of space deemed nocessa
,7?' S * B ° rt ° f P la,ff rm at one end, on !
IIC ‘ • ,ud 2° dispenses law in his '
quiet efficient manner. The i emairder of the
building has no floor, but the turf is covered
with as good saw dust as ever was spit on—
while the ground not being entirely free from
irregularities, the chairs of the lawyers pitch
ed about making their occupants illustrate the
proverbial irookeduessof the law. There are
a large number of cases oa the calendar, and
a large number of attorneys are present.
I. 1. Foster. L. Smith, 1). John and otlters
are canq < d on the ground, taking things in a
very easy natural way. Mr. Crippen has ac
commodations for all who may come, and if
the weather continues pleasant, there is uotli
ing to hinder a good time.
The County Seat is located in the center of
the County, and amid as good timber land
and as rrch a soil as could be desired. We
hope its removal may effect all that has been
anticipated for the development of the County.
Hudson Correspondence.
Ed. Journal : — I feel good. It is one of
the joyous, life-giving days of the sunny May.
A person upon such an evening as this, cannot
but be glad in being able to live. There is
such a yellow richness in the air and its fra
grance is as sweet as the breath of roses.—
These last few days of the maturing spring
are the finest of the year—they give life to the
heart and warm the soul into its richest moods
of feeling. As the rays of the afternoon sun
fall bright upon the smiling landscape, they
form a picture, more glowing by far, than can
be produced on the painter’s canvass. It is
upon such days as this that we forget the bus
tle and stir of the world, and involuntarily
surrender to the many influences which beck
on us to a better life, —turning our thoughts to
Him who built this earth-temple, with its
miracles and beauty, and canopied it witli the
“ blue deep above.”
There bos not much of local interest trans
pired here the past week. Our merchants
have received and opened large Btocksof spring
gosds, ami generally report a brisk trade.—
Considerable building is going on in various
pa. ts of the city. The grain trade is very live
ly. Boats are lying at the levee nearly all the
time, loading with wheat. Ten thousand
bushels of wheat was shipped from here on
Monday last. What a country this great
Northwest is for wheat. Well has it been
called the " Granary of the World,”
There has been considerable excitement here
for several days, over the depreciation of Illi
nois money. The ” stump tail currency does
not meet with much favor here, and I am glad
of it. The whole banking system of Illinois
is a miserable swindle, and the Chicago bank
ers have violated good faith, and imposed upon
the business men and farmers most outra
geously. I would advise all farmers to re
fuse t,> take any Illinois or Wisconsin money
in exchange for grain. If the farmers would
only demand specie for their grain they could
get .t. There is good reason for believing
that Wisconsin money will continue to depre
ciate. To be sure, some ol the banks have
been pr opped up until December, but there is
Still danger that much of the money may be
discredited soon, as all are aware, is based in
good part, upon Missouri bonds, and should
she refuse to pay the interest on her bonds,
whv, of coarse, our money would depreciate,
and farmers would have in return for their
grain nothing but worthless rags. The saying
that " Wheat is as good as the gold” is true,
and our farmers t on Id act wisely to take such
action as would prove it so. Such is the opin
ion of your humble correspondent, what says
•‘ye Editor?”
Our military company, the “Hudson City
Guards,” are flourishing finely. The company
is now full of those who will go for the “ term
of the war.” By Hie way, wc Hudsonians
feel proud of our military. They are a. fine
lot of men, not made, as is too frequently
the case, of rowdyish, reckless and lazy fel
lows, who enlist merely for adventure, or to
escape work. The Guards arc also becoming
well drilled. Capt. White is a capital drill
officer, and under his thorough discipline, the
boys are progressing finely. Large ts umbers
of ladies from the city frequently visit the en
campment, carrying over something of “good
cheer.” At the barracks where the Guards
are encamped, is a fine 'dancing ball, and a
few nights since the undersigned, accompanied
by several persons of the “ female persuasion,”
took occasion to visit the barrccks, and spent
a pleasant hour in tripping to the inspiration
of the stringed instrument. It was a pleas
ant scene, to see the
as they mingled in the merry dance,
feet.”
I did not intend to make tins epistle so long
and, Mr. Editor, I apologise, and will here
after attempt to be brief. MARK.
