An advertisement dated Jaruurr 27lh, in the Fit U field Free Freso, Rivet notice "that a meet ing will be held at Thomas Hull', on Saturday, the 2b Ih ef ebruury, 1853, to lake into cont id ration tlie propriety of making a plunk road from Hannibal Ferry to the Illinois bluff." , It is unnecessary to comment on tlie great Importance of thie enterprise to the trade of Hannibal. The road will coat about ten thou sand dollars. Stock to the amount of five thou- and dollar hat already been tuken by the Han jubal Ferry Company. Our citizena generally, hare aubacribed a portion of the remaining five thousand dollar, and if they have nny regard or their own interest, they will immediately come forward, in a liberal spirit, to contribute towards making up the baluncc. We do not forget the enterprise and weulth of onr Illinois tieighbors, or doubt that we can depend on them for assistance, but, our citizens have too much spirit to look across the river for means to ac complish the whole work. " We entertain confhience' enough in the pros pect of the amount of stock Lcing soon made up, Jo say that tlie road will be commenced in the Spring.; .1 , " " ' '.' RAILKOAD BTJKYEY9. A few dys ago we paid a visit to the camp f lite engineers who have recently relumed Trora surveying the eastern division of the Han 3iiba( and SU Joseph Railroad. Tlicy are nil in good health, not having had a day's sickness xmong them from the time 'liey left this city. The two divisions met at Blooming! on in M.tuon eounty.' The western corps had then about for jr miles to survey, lut have probubly been de tained a little by the loss by fire of one of their lent an the 17th ult. Nothing of value, how vet was burned, except the tent and the pri vate papers of one of the company. It is prob able that, the Bear Creek route will have to be jurveyed. : Should this be done, it will be per tiaps tome two weeks before both corps of en gineers will be ready to submit the results of their labors to the Board of Directors. The survey have been very thoroughly and com pletely made. , ' ..:....... . UT ne small pox is raging severely in Til!.

Judge Colt was trying to air est him, and called on Mr. Stickney for help, when the man stabbed both, killing them instantly. The letter is from a reliable source; but we are at a loss to account for the fact that the occur rence is not mentioned in the St. Louis papers, amd hope there is some mistukc about it. - ' ; :' THE K4HXET8.

Lane's Message, Tot rc spoil i)cncf. : o CiMBatnor, Massachusetts, January 20, 1853. O. Climb-its, Eso... ' Mt Dea Sia! In your paper bearing date Dec. 23, you publish at length Theodore Par ker's tirade against Daniel Webster, and his views of the constitutionality of 'the Fugitive Bill;' and in you editorial remarks you give the impression that the majority of the North sym palhize with that base nullifier and inGdcl. You say "This violent and bitter sermon, made in the North to sIoatls9rn audience, shows what sort of sentiments aro acceptable to people of that latitude, and bow inimical they arf) to slavery. It will bring the South to a nearer view of the force and extent ot tins opposition The 'force and extent' of such an 'opposition' as Theodore Parker can excite, with all his ge nius, is exceeding small. He is too well known in this community. lie has been discarded by the Unitarians, among whom he once labored as a clergyman. I might refer you to recent newspaper articles where his own published sermons prove his glaring in fidelity. Among the thousand sermons which were preached the Subbath after the interment of Daniel Webster, only two have come to light in all these Northern States which savor of the spirit above noticed: these were preached by Parker of Boston and May of Syracuse. With out referring you to the one hundred and twen ty sermons published in euhtpy of the great Statesman, I will quote the sentiments of one minister, who is -acknowledged to be among the first in the State ttev. Wm. Stearns of this city: "1 have been pained to read such senti ment us these : 'The Mr. Webster whom the nation mourns, is the Mr. Webster of history. Let us say that the last of Young America's (great triumvirate died before the ides, or rather the calends of March, 1S50.'" That Mr. W, intended to do the very best thing which, under nil the circumstances, lie could do, few that know hi characteristic honesty will doubt. A vast majority of the citizens of the United States lime adopted his view as moderate, conciliatory, ond constitutional. Tiie highest courts liuve; stamped it with the seul of the judicial sanction. At all events, when his course has been op- proved by such men of pietv ond patriotism as the Jute Prof. Stuart, of Andover, and a thou, sand others of the highest principle and intelli gence, men not in political life and not tobesus. peeled of selfish motives, a little charity in com menting on his acts might be pardonable. When I remember that 'publiculions more abusive and scurrilous never saw the light, than were sent forth ogainst Washington,' and when I remem- uer uiai one greaicr inon Washington was charged with being 'a cluttonous man and a wine- bibber, and a friend of publicans und sinners,' 1 am not inclined to believe an evil report just be cause 'Gashum saith it.' Read the eiirhth chan- ter of John, and you will learn that the severest accusers ore not always the purest in heart. The opinions of another minister in Cambridge whom you know well, you may tuke for what they are worth. They were delivered to his own people ond have not as yet attained to tho high honor of being published to the world. When speaking of such Abolitionists as Par ker, he said : "The truthful couplet of Hudibras may be op- plied to them : " Men compound with sins they're inclined to, By demning those they have no mind to." "These fanatical abusers ore like blood hounds, which to escape the whip of their mas ter, fly mercilessly upon the fugitive. They manage thus to keep up a debit und credit ac count with their conscience. They post up in their moral ledger all the sins which conscience has charged to their account, and then balance the credit side by making extra charges ogainst their neighbors.

I will not trouble you with any more from the sermon. V hue I was a resident of your city I endeavored to correct the prejudice existing in the minds of few, ogainst the North. In doing so, some who had selfish ends in view, tried hard to convince the community that I was a danger- ous abolitionist but my friends who knew me best, gave me credit for being a conservative, Now that I am in the North again, I exert my j feeblo influence to correct prejudices ugajnst U'-oie who live in your region.

The house occu pied uy JHrs. rurdom, on Leavenworth street, was supposed, from seeing volumes of smoke issue through the doors and other apertures of the same, to be on fiie, which was soon sur rounded by many of our energetic and efficient citizens, always ready, on such occasions. to give their uid; but, instead of the house being on ure, 10 ineir norror and consternation tliey beheld its inmate, Mrs. P. a lifeless, charred corpse, She was on old ludy, about near 70 years of nge, and much esteemed in this com munity. No person was in the house when the sad disaster occurred.

ABOUT HAJtNIBAl. Rev.' Mr. Snow, editor of the St. Louis Tem perance Battery, made a very favorable impres sion on our citizens, while on his lisit to this oity. Vt are glad to find that he was also pleased' with Hannibal. He does injustice, however, by accidental omission, we presume, to the Brady House, the proprietor of which, Capt. A. S. Robards, is also a "gentleman pre pared and willing to make all comfortable and at home," and "tolerates" no bar. We hope Mr. Snow will inform his readers that Hannibal can boast of two temperance hou ses, which are also excellent hotels : Alntit 1(1 p. m. tlie hack came along-, and we set out (from Troy) on what turned out to be a J wast, disagreeable ond dangerous ride to Hauni- bal. Tlie night was dark, the roads perfectly awful, the hack without a 'break,' and the hor ses 'smooth.1 We had a lime of it but at last got to Han nibal, at 6 p. m. the next day fatigued and ut most broken down by protracted and severe la bor, jolting and loss of sleep.

Judge Gore of this city (Hannibal Mo.) related to us the fol lowing as coming under his own observation. Tom Mc. vhs a confirmed sot; had made a per fect beast of himself, with the help of the gro cery keeper. On one occasion Tom went to the grog shop, out of money and credit too, and begged for some whisky. 1 lie gro-seller pro mised him a quart, upon consideration that lie would take ten lashes upon his bare back with a raw hide, and all the while keep his thumbs in two auger holes bored into the whipping post. Mc. at last agreed to the hard bargain, stripped oil, and received eight severe lashes without flinching; the ninth was very hard, and the poor!" '""X c use al" a PP norso ....er, rn, !.i,.i i.:. i,.k r i,- ,, i!i.. succeeded in naobin mm. I hey were on the fellow jerked his thumb out of the nugcr hole By the terms of his bargain he must lose the whisky or take the lashes over again. He stood up to it again, but at the ninth lash again flinched, jerking his thumb out of the auger hole. The grog seller was inexorable he would not abate one of the lashes. And now poor Mc. deter mined to try it again, and fixing his thumbs in the auger holes apparently with a death grip, he stood it this time the whole ten, making in oil twenty-eight lashes laid on by the strong, willing arm of the grog seller. Then the poor fellow- having nothing else into which the quart of whisky could be put, was obliged by the heart less grocery keeper to receive it in his old felt hat, in which he carried it off the price of his own blood. After this, the same poor drunk ard went to a young doctor in this neighborhood and begged for whisky. The doctor, to satisfy himself, ot the truth or what he had heard res pecting the great strength of the man's appe tite, proposed to give him the whisky upon con dition that 51c. would suffer the first joint of his thumb to be cut cff. To this he agreed. And the doctor took out his knife, and cut through the skin and flesh, clean to the bone. This sat isfied him that he weald really submit to the amputation, rather than lose the whisky, and he bound up the Wound and let him have the quart of liquor. Another time, the same man applied to judge Gore for a dram he begged 'only one glass.' The Judge at last consented te let him have it, provided he would swallow with it such proportions of tartar emetic, ipecacuanha and os safestida as ho would put into it. Mc. consent ed, and a doctor drugged the gill of whisky with the above articles to the extent that he sup posed was safe. With a full knowledge of the fact, the miserable man turned off the nauseous draught at a single swallow and was of course made violently sick. Up the Mississippi. On Monday night again, a large and respectful audience attend ed at the Southern Methododist Church. On this occasion the position was assumed that the influence of the liquor traffic to corrupt the mo rals of tlue community, was best illustrated by its effects upon the grog-ellers themselves. We cannot take leave of Hannibal without ex pressing our hearty thanks for the many friend ly attentions received from its people. We found the gentlemen of the press all of them Ihous of the Messenger, the Courier and the Journal, 'courteous, affable and agreeable,' and that dinner, brother Messenger, sticks in our craw yet we were tempted by its savory and rich profusion somewhat beyond the bounds proper for the appetite of a Temperance man. No wonder you are cf such aldermanio propor tions and rotundity. Travelers will find in Messrs. Jackson & Hance, mine hosts of the City Hotel, gentlemen prepared and willing to make all comfortable und at home. Give them a call. To us it is exceedingly unpleasant to be compelled to inhale the poisonous vapors and fumes of a rum hole, such as many of our Missouri taverns ore, ond on this account will mention the fact, that at the City Hotel no bar is tolerated. We have rnisluid the printed notice given us of the fact, ond so ore compelled in tins form to state that a few weeks ago our friend Hinton, of the Hannibal Courier, was married to a lady who was highly spoken of there, but whose name we have forgotten. At Hannibal, os well as at all other places we have visited, we were gratified with the eviden ces we met with, of the favor with which the 'Battery' is regarded.
