" ',' ' "How could there be a commitment on a con tinpruil issue?" Cannot a man commit himself upon a "contingency" just lis strongly a with out oiio if he makes dio contingency known? I a contract lor. a contract becuusc it has a con-i Unpen t provision ? It would bo more fortunate for the Courier, after the position it takes, could it as easily per suade its readers as itself. The question "How could there be a commitment on -a contingent is sue P" involves too much of importance, to be met, s it waa, by ridicule instead of argument. If the former gnin anything in exchange with the latti-r, II tun only be as the lust resort of a weak cause; as there nlny be a pc.!od in ever , man's life when he is willing to "catch at a straw."- Our positions are ridiculed 'shcer nonsense" indeed ! but we care very - little for naked as scrtions. They have about the same show of importance, as a doubtful note, without a relia ble endorser. Troof is the ouly thing, in our eyes, thut gives dignity"! to assertion, and if lan guage express any thing, we see nothing to induce us to abandon the position assumed that there fan never be a "commitment on a conHngent issue." 0 -i t--. -. " ommumew Dt-ars on us faco the fact, that something has been done that some preliminary step has- been taken, which cannot be j-cc.dled. This involves a jhm ilivf. act, and to speak of a positive act, being af fected by a fortuitous event, a "contingent is sue," is nothing more or less thafi a perversion of terms.' That the contingency is known and expressed with regard to the issue, so far from weakening adds much strength to our position, since it shows conclusively that in the mind of the individual, ahcrei. existed at the time, a con ciouxness of utter impossibility to make txposUive promiv (commitment) whose fulfilment depen ded on something that'might never take0 place. Just so in thoScase of Scott. As he is, we will not support him ; if he become the advocate of the Compromise, mid then the nominee of the convention, we ftill support him. By way of further illustration, we throw two pair1 of dice, which would our neighbor stake the larger sumo a on-iijT one wnen me "issue ucpenas entirely upon the contingent chances, or the other, skill fully loatfed, w here the "issue" is certain ? The former isil "contingent issue"' the latter a positive issue. Vet we are induced to suppose, from his remarks, thai ne would make no d infer ence between the two. But what is still more preposterous, "7 a contract less a contract bfi- ycaust it ha a contingent msuc?"". Now' the very idea of "a contingent provision" precludes the possibility of its'being a contract, and clearly implies an action fh the future. The individu als, attempting to negotiate' the contract, can no- ver accomplish it, and the contract is no con- ! tract. 'de facto" until the contingency is re- "immediately" and the possession js in the fu tuft). If A., in consideration of one jjiundrcd dollars, Consent to dispose of his horse toB., and delivers him at tho time, the contractus ex ecuted, and both right of property and possession vest immediately in B., but if, on the other hand, A. promise Bfto deliver the horse so long after date, A. the rtunnent, vests tho'ight in B., but continues in possession, until the time agreed upon. All contractsjnust be certain, per fect and complete. o Will our neighbor dous Ue favor just to peep at tho argument without the use of a smoked glass?

'JOURNAL AND UNION-HANNIBAL," MO., SEPTEMBER Time's Changes. Six years ago, a memorial was drawn up in this cily, and forwarded to the Legislature, soliciting a charter for the Hanni bal and St. Joseph Railroad. Some people then said that the whole thing was a humbug, got up to promote the interests of speculators. A great many opposed the project, some on one grouvtd some on other grounds. It was by many per sons prophesied that the Road would never be commenced. We now see that it will be com menced; that oil this matter there have existed false prophets in Missouri. It is true we can not tell everything that will take place in the future, but we can say tliat the work, will be commenced, and, so far as human judgment is capable of deciding, with every prospect of a huppy completion. Every body now has faith in the belief of linal success. TEE TELEGRAPH.

' In relation to a certain subject, for instance", said editor used to talk in the following style: " First there is the Higher Abolitm Fr.ec spiler; then there is the Freesoler proper; and lastly, there is the Missourj Freesoiler, of the Bales and Bmton school vho avow themselves in favor of the princwle, butucrainst its enactment in u particular instance as unnecessary, (hot as inexpedient or unjust).

He declared, be fore he left there, that he would kill some one before reaching home. When he arrived ot Dr. Chamberlain's gale, he called him out and charged him with having expelled a certain young man on account of his political senlimcirts, who, for"' other reasons, had becti recently dis missed from the College. Dr. C. denied the charge. Briscoe called him a liar and it is said that th Dr. replied, "That remains to be prov ed." B. then knocked him down with his load ed whip and stabbed him as he rose. He struck at Miss C. with his whip, as she ran past him to call for assistance. When the Dr's son-in-law came up, Dr. C. was standing. He walked to the house with his assistance, and there fell down and almost immediately died.

My senses were becoming more and more op pressedthe sensation of cold was passing a wny life seemed to concentrate and accumu late about the heart : such were my last physi cal sensations ; my last recollection of external things were the earth, almost entirely invisible, and tho balloon still making a rapid flight tow ard the Moon. I passed into a state of entire insensibility. The recent scientific discoveries of Professor Goetleibv have to i) self, at least, satisfactorily explained my then condition ; my life was suspended not destroyed, by the gradual operation of intense cold. How long I thus remained, I have not yet sought to ascer tain, and I have not now time to speculate upon the subject. The sensations attending my revi val were similar to those related above, but of a reverse character. Unlike those, beginning with intensity and gradually declining. With natural physical sensation, consciousness and in tellectual power returned. I fortunately recol lected my situation before I made any great ef fort, otherwise I might liave precipitated myself from the balloon. 1 was slowly approaching the earth, as I supposed, and already trees, houses, aud cultivated fields became visible and distinct. Whv mv balloon descended. I did not then nr.. derstand, as it was still fully inflated ; still it came down slowly, and I could soon distinguish objects more clearly. I was approaching some unknown land some quarter of tho earth little , Known or described j every thinj- wore a strain aspect, i came sun lower, and could distm- guish more minute objects ; I could see that I was ubscrved, and that the people were moved, by the wildest excitement; the sounds of life came to my cars ; the mingled shouts of aston ished man, and the various cries ol tho lower animals. Still lower, and tle welcome atmosphere breathed by my fellow man reguhd another sense. The breeze was loaded with the perfume of the fresh earth I was still slowly descending, borne by the gentle wind, in the di rection of a vast city which lay on a plain at the fot of a mountain. Though astonished at all I saw, I was by this time entirely self-poswsecf. and I made the necessary preparation to land and secure my balloon. was carried directly over 0 the city at a gentle height, and with a speed not exceeding three or four miles an hour, toward the side of the mountain. The astonishment my appearance seemed to create, is uiconreivaoie. lio broad street crowded with the up-gating population, and the 1 l"'d of huir.uii life swelled in .proportion to my UrSress' Uut eaceemed now so' wrapped up in j L"'' ,al dcJlf a ""'vrsal silence hung over the city. At leneth I reached the 'hill side, aud my balloon resting gently in some j low bushes, I secured it to a neighboring tree.
