It hoara Kissotmi uail&oad. ; Iowa and Wisconsin have a large and growing trade. Hie larger portion of this has heretofore been with the Southj but increasing facilities for transportation North and East, together with the impediments in the Rapids, threaten to divert it from its natural direction. A railroad running through Northern Missouri, parallel with the river, and penetrating Iowa through Keokuk, would avoid the difficulty in the Rnpids; accom mod.de Northern Missouri, Iowa and Wiscon sin with a choice of markets; and would not be, as the Ft. Charles project is, liable to the objec tion of arousing the jealousy and opposition of Burlington, Keokuk, 'and' those other most populous portions ' of Iowa lying on the river bank. We presume that few now think seriously of improving the Rapids by blowing out the rocks. This would require years of la bor and an" outlay of millions of dollars. Yet they are a most serious commercial obstacle. Freight from St. Louis to Nauvoo is 15 cents a hundred when boats can pass over the Rapids; it is 75 cents a hundred when they cannot. A railroad is proposed around the Rnpids, on the Illinois side, from Rockfurd down to Warsaw, live movements in its favor, will make friends in Iowa for our Railroad The St. Louis people will favor a railroad anywhore that will benefit them, injure whom else it may; and so it contribute to the welfare of ST. LOUIS, they would as soon see a Rail road built in Illinois as in Missouri their pride of State is swallowed up in theii higher pride of city. Hence, ther libcrsllv nrotfVr id fn .

They would doubtless be glad to see a railroad built from their civ. extendins- the whole distance, to the boundary line of Iowa; but so it intersects the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad, their present purpose will be accom plished, and they will allow the remainder of the project to slumber awhile, sefar as they are concerned.

Hug is eur answer to the.Bloomington Republican's ar gument that the interior ought to be accommo dated with Railroads. In other words, counties above the line of the Hannibal and St. Joseph nauroau, are not likely ever to be benefitted by the North Missouri Railroad, if built on the in terior route; their most reliable dependence is plankroads the farmer's road connecting with the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad on the South, and the river route, or Louisiana and Minnesota road on the East. . , . .... DEJf OCBaTIC MEETHfoT Last Monday night the Democracy had a sermon preached to them by Jas. S. Green, an exhortation followed from Col. Richmond, and Wm. P. Harrison closed the meeting with a benediction. At Wit these were the terms fa cetiously given by the speakers themselves to their several parts. Mr. Green, however, we should judge from his misrepresentations, had been called to preach by the wrong authority. For instance he had a great deal to say about a large appropriation to the Quarter-Master Gene ral's Department, under Fillmore's adininistraJ tion apparently quite oblivious of the fact that the debts incurred during the Mexican War had to be settled. He said a good deal about Corwin neting as counsel, and being interested in the Gardiner claim, ond deciding on it, as Secretary. Now it happens that a Democratic committee, appointed by the House, to invest igate the matter, acquitted Mr. Corwin of all blame. They reported the claim fraudulent, but said there was no evidence that Mr. Corwin knew, or could reasonably be supposed to know t to be sn; that he sold out his interest before he became Secretary of the Treasury, and not only refused to act any further as counsel, but even refused to consult with those employed to prosecute the claim. Under these cireumstan-j ces, Mr. Green's charco must be branded n slanderous. " ' COKSTTMAI.

Sometimes he gathers the baby and goes stagger ing and stumbling and pitching about over the hill, to the great dismay of his wife.

Mr. Editob : I observe that your paper, and the Messenger of this city, have made a call up on the citizens to hold a meeting this evening, to appoint delegates to the St. Charles Conven tion. This Convention, you are aware, is to promote the construction of a road from St. Louis, via. St. Charles, to the northern bound ory of this State ; and thence, by the preten tions of its St. Louis advocates, to Dubuque and lobe baptised into the name and scheme of the great route from Minnesota to New Orleans. Now, independant of the "humbuggery" of the scheme, you and the country ought to know that, for two substantial reasons, this road, if ever, cannot be built in the time of the pres ent generation. First, the stock of no such road can be remunerative : for, as is well known to tho Pacific Railroad Company, no crossing, by bridge, can ever bo made over the Missouri river, and this impediment will des troy the value of its stock, by whomsoever ta ken. But, secondly, we may not expect anoth- 1 er grant of lands to this State, for these purpo- 2jses and, with the present engagements of the 5tate, souer-uiiiu'cu pcrscr.s C2!?nn. nnr will J"' n.f ;..ni.. : p .i : .... ; ..v. ulur mij inner improvements, un 20 Total. 2GS 2 If- President Fillmore lias addressed n Ircr to tht heads of Departments relative to the death of Daniel Webber.

On Thursday, the case of William Gardner, charged with kil ling tho slave d William Redman, came up foi examination before Justice Sharp, of P.rcmen. A only three or four witnesses were exam ined, we prefer to give the statement made by Mr. Gardner himself, and reduced to writing. Tho statement is corroborated in all its particu lars by the only witness cognizant of tho facts. It is as follows : On the 21st of October, 1852, between nine and ten o'clock, I went to the north end of my porch ; w hile there, I heard a horse shaking himself, which seemed to be in the northern DMt-uf,JV.lUrrpi left the porch and went through the yard g:ite, through the lot at the extreme northern part, and found a horse tied to the plank fence, with a saddle, bridle and martingales on him ; from the looks of the horse and trappings, I believed that some white man had rode him there. It was so diirk I could nut tell the cOor of the horse. I opened the gate find turned him into the yard; the horse was in a foam of sweat ; I staid on the eround for a few minutes : then I got into an old barouche near where the horse was hitched, for the purpose of ascertaining the rider; the length of time I remained in the barouche, I cannot say, but so.no time ; I went totheh'iiisp and laid down with my clothes on. I frequently rose and went out to see what was there, when I he.ird tho d,iT ' k' lnr tl, )I,:.,1 or fourth time I went out, I Heard the gate shriek j Between Hie two old ion stables : this was ad joining the spot where I found the horse ; 1 -.1. t It .. - inauo considerable searcli bill no discovery ; I then returned to the house und lay down with my clonics on some lime afterwards my fist dog commenced barking to the South or South, west direction. I arose and went to the south end of the porch, cast my eyes to the south CITY EATIItOAD8. The Railroads which have, been constructed in New York city, have not, as yet, relieved the principal street Ilroadway. It is almost im possible for pedestrians to cross Itroadway be low the Park during any time of tho day be tween 7 A. M. and 8 r. m. Females kte in dan ger of losing their lives while crossing; tiny have to run for life or denll. It has been cal-e dilated that W)0 omnibuses pass a single point in Broadway every hour, or more than tight every minute. It is easy to see from this that it is almost impossible for persona to rross from, one side of the street to the other. To relieve." tho street, it is proposed to build o railroad with a triple track, each 4 feet wide, and to employ 120 curs, so as to despatch one every minute , - an 1. ....... ...i.l il !. il... eucli W'ay, or uu un iiuw ) "in these cai s will carry more passengers than all the omnibuses. It is proposed to lay down a grooved ril that will not interfere with curri ages. A single horse has drawn thirty tons at the rate of 6 3-4 miles per hour on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, and it is contended that tbs great amount of load which ahorse can draw on a railroad, in comparison with what it can draw over our paved streets, should at once lead ev ery reasonable person to give his support to the railroad for passengers, in preference to the omnibus. On the other hand, the owners of property assert that a railroad will injure the charaqter or ii Dn-wi c. L.i?;.,4.r-f . l dtroy it si t public thoroughfare for promenade and pleasure. Science, progress and reason, appear to be on the side of those who advocate the railroad, but the only arguments which can safely be applied, are those of facts. If a railroad is more dangr. ous, does not look well to the eye, (this is for the taste of the promcnaders) und is more in convenient for private onrricges, so as to prevent them passing throui;h Broadway for business or pleasure; in short, if the advantages of ihe rail, road are less than the present omnibus system, it would bo folly to build one; here lies the gist of the whole question. Every person can see that some reform is required to remove the ob. structirn to the free crossing of the street; what shall that reform be ? is the question; the o;ily rational cue is the railroad.
