GCIga A-XI5HIS0. A parly of gentlemen and ladies on a fishing excursion, may be contemplated philosophically under two separate heads: 1st; Fishing in water. id. FUhing on land. The former is the prose, the latter is the po etry of the excursion. Imagine,' now, fifteen or sixteen blooming young lasses and eligible young ge.illemen, with hook and line and rod; with fishing worms in lin cups and love and romance in their hearts, ail embarked on the ferry boat, under a broiling sun, and romping ad singing, to drive dull care away. - Crossing the bottom en the exker aide, somebody must carry the bucket of ice; some body else muat "tot a" the heavy basket of pro visions, and others must carry the minnow buck ets, alt of which duties are cheerfully perform. edby the marriageable gentlemen of the party. vrWare anxious to appear as accommodeting as possible. Arrived at the ground, the hooks are baited and thrown in the water, and then a confusion ef sounds frightens the fish to the bot torn, or away to the end of "Sand Slough." Af trHvtVfvneTfirf around and partakes with vigorous appetite. I Somebody suspiciously enough for himself finds a phial of brandy in the basket. Nobody knows how it got there; but there it is. Its presence is charged upon the president of one of our temperance societies, who denies it, and throws it in the slough. That young gentleman who is so busily engaged in helping his pretty neigliDor at his side, and who appears to a care less observer to be in love with her, i, "on the contrary quite other wise," dead in love with the demure looking lady directly opposite, at whom slyly, and when he imagines nobody is looking he stares, as if she were some strange looking animal just imported from South America, or some other outlandish quarter of the globe, or as he should like to devour her all at a mouth fuf, if it wouldn't be considered cannibalism. Bu, although he thinks this, he wouldn't speak to her O, no! not for the world! How could he Say anything interesting enough for her to hear? Take care! "faint heart never won fair lady" she will slip through your fingers yet! AU the tune lie is thinking what we have guess ed above, the lady's thoughts arc running in quite a different channel. It is questionable whether, if his name should be mentioned, she would be quite sure that she had ever heard of it before, al though perhaps less than a month ago, she might have led him a bewildering dance through the mazes of hope and despair, just by way of ex fermenting on her own power. Now, with the greatest earnestness, she is sweetening a draugh f vinegar for the haiid&jtne young man recli Siing at her feet and who looks as happy as if the cup he is draining it really all sweet, with out any vinegar at all about it! 0: there's tna ny a cup to be drank in this life thus mixed. and well it is for the man who is able to smoth r down the feeling of woe, and make others around him believe that the cup he it drinking from is filled altogether wilU that which suits his taste! But whils we are gazing around ab sently at the cusnpany, and philosophising, the rascally Doctor who sits near by, has eaten up all lUe pie! And the'dinuer feeing finished, the company rise from their humble positions, and resume their, labors, fishing and talking with in domitable industry until it it time for the ferry boat le be at the landing, when a retreat is beat en homeward. From last 84'a.r jjy up to the present moment, and from thi time henceforth, we are an advo cate 'ef fishing pjrties. Three cheers for the fish in ll.e wiltr, and nine for those on land ! Intelligence has been received that Mr. Bush ntll has completed arrangements in the East, by which the Northern Cross Railroad will be completed from Quincy to Meredosia and from Clayton to Chicago by the first of next Decem ber a year. The -Chicago and Quincy and Meredosia and Quincy Railroads will unite at Clayton. Tke writer traversed the country in '49 over which Benton's line is proposed to be run, and in 'E2 the more northern route, by the emigrant trail, through the South Pass. So his opportu nities for a general knowledge of the country are exttnsive. ' The suggestion in the Intelligencer ef a Union meeting to settle and harmonize the conflicting views and interests of the different sections of our eounfrr. to be held in St. Luis in the FalU is a goo lone. Its proceedings would furnish instruction to Cengress, and a plan might be adopted by the penple to aecominoun umerem interests, which might be made the basis of a bill ConcreKs would pass. At present there is every prospect of a stoamy, protracted and un satisfactory debate on the road question. Amid the conflict of interests and opinions it is doubt ful whether anything final will be done, in se lecling a route either directly by Congress or by a reference of it to the President In my opinion the best plan to build the road is by private enterprise, largely assisted by the government. Il will be completed sooner, cheap er and belter. The company should be allowed to select their own termini, and their own in tcrmediate line of route. Bat I would be sorry to see any one overgrown monopoly (created by great and exclusive governmental favors) con trolling nil the direct intercourse between us and the Pacific. To obviate this, let Congress pass a bill donating land and loaning its credit (both liberally) to any companies who may or panizc to construct one, two or three lines of railroad to the Pacific.

Examinations of the ladies, will commence on Monday, 27th, at 9 o'clock, a. m., and will be continued with best route. If n practicable route could be found on any particular one of them, then it would be abandoned and the company dissolved without loss to the government. If however the company should proceed and only construct portion of their road, as for example on the southern line into New Mexico, it would re ceive from Government credit and land for so much only, and the road would develop the country, and probably pay an interest on the outlay. One or perhaps more companies, pos sessing practicable routes, would finally secure the great object.

J us Era nau road, by James m. bucklin, chief eugi Some four or five voars ao, the idea dawned upon the minds of two or three individuals to connect the Mississippi and Missouri rivers by a railroad. This idea was so far in advance of the feelings and prejudices, the conjectures and even wishes ol the people in this region, mai, for the most part, the only attention it euciieu Tor a time, was expressions or surprise ai us nov elty, or manifestations of ridicule at its imprac tibililv. Luckily, the projectors of this scheme . .. . - - - . ... . , were no idle dreamers, wnose policies couia be upset by the cold doubts or skepticism or be demolished by the lash of ridiculo. The prac ticability of their project was a matter ot math ematical demonstration the possibility of its consummation appealed to the energy of its orig tnators. And never was appeal more ludicious !y made or more resolutely answered. Onward tiiey kept their way, deterred by no daubts frightened by no ridicule, appalled by no oppo sing public opinion, their courage, and energy not abated even by painful, protracted, and crip pling disease. Soon the footsteps of progress could be traced. The bill for a charter was fought through Stutc credit was pledged, an exploration was made subscriptions of stock were solicited, and the before shapeless and rid iculcd idea now took a tangible form and seem. ed to issume a hervadine power. Hopeful politicians, whose affection for the "dear people never permitted them to hint at any scheme for the substantial good of their constituents, until they were quite sure it could command the mag ieal influence of that all powerful political talis man, the majority, now elevated their voices aloud and begged to be regarded as original sup porters and champions.
