Speaking of the vulno and improvements of the country, wo uro reminded of what wo hnvo of'en heord among the "uld settlers," respecting portions of our country. It is snid to bo with in the knowledge of hundreds of our popula tion, that hinds on tho Ilydesburg, West Ely, Slime's, and what is known as thn Salt River and Shelby villo prairies were considered worth less not worth entry at $1 25, and that many persons would not have paid llio taxes for them either selected or in a body. That when Dr. Ely, Muldrow, and others, commenced their operations, a few years ago, many of our best farmers, w ith a shrug of the shoulder, whis pered, "a bad speculation!" and thought tho pur chasers were "grcon."

Whoa the road is roade, there must bo of necessity a murt of trade in Northern Missouri, and on iho Mississippi, and that mart must be in onroinirouiiry.
