Nor would It, In my opinion, be attended with beneficial resultt. These people are ft wild, bar barous, and benighted race, and are. perhaps. more than any other people, under the Influence of their chteft, headmen,'' and prophets. A blow, then, which falls upon and puntshca their leaden, by whom they hare been Instigated, and whoso commands they almost tuperstltloutly obey, win be recognized by them at falling upon the author! of their crimes, at the Just vindica tion of the majesty of onrlawa, and aa an ex hibition of the magnanimity of our people. On the other hand a punishment which falls alike upon those who Instigated and led them on, and those who followed through a blind and superstitions Instinct of obedience, will beget a bitter feeling of reTenge, which, though It may be smothered, will never be extinguished.

Some idea of the business transacted by the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy, and the Chlca jro and Galena Union railroads, may be Inferred from the fact that on that portion of the latter road, cast of the Galena Junction, over which the trains of the former road also pass, there are thirty trains dally each way, or sixty trains passing that point every 24 hours.
