A friend his han led us the Conner* *ille (Ind,) Telegraph of Oct, ®.h, in Which we find two letters from Dr. ftaiMF MASON, a very intelligent gentle Kl*n who lately visted our place, and Horn which we mike the following ex *bcf. Speaking of lown, ho eajt: ••I have traveled over different road* ff|r nearly ur quite 500 miles, and tailed large number of the most important places, embracing 120 miles of country little back from the Mississippi Kiver, Striking at all the important places, and conversed with a large number of tlm business men of the country, as well as tamers, artisans and millers. 1 have eocght information by every means •ltdled the natural resources of the country, ar.d ihc facilities for thosn ar tificial facilities of slack-water and rail ipadu, all of which are easily made and Will be accomplished in a reasonable time and the favorable opinion 1 forried, when first passing through the State, his been constantly increased The ex lent of soil is unsurpassed in the United States for all kinds of agricultural pro (Iticts, and for hogs, horses, sheep and nettle, it is unrivaled. 'I he rich coal fields, plaster of paris, and some iron ore, combined with the easy facilities for %rti6ci»l thoroughfares, with an indus trious, moral and enterprising population, wost render Iowa one of the first States the Union.'* Speaking of Iowa Railroads be nys: "The railroad from Muscatine to Os luloosa, which was under contract for ••me distance out from the Mississippi, and on which considerable work has been done, is oow suspended for wantoi fntids, as also tbe road from Burlington loOuumwa." In regard to latter road the Doctor is llfctakeo. The work is progressing rapidly end it is nearly graded and bridged from Burlington to Mt.Pleasant, 90 miles the ties are rapidly being brought on lo the ground and it is thought the road will be completed that distance and the cars be running by the 1st of HP? next. IIn his last letter he aay4m4r *8I"I have now corrpUtetf-'lfty rambles lor the season, and this is probably the laat letter 1 shall write you. I must now close abruptly. and simply say that I give (he preference to Southern Iowa to the country I have seen. The Doctor is but one of thousands of intelligent travelers who have come to the aame conclusion.

OT The grand place of meeting for lbs Know Nothings of Ohio, Indians, 4«d Pennsylvania, has at last been dis Hvered to be at the Poll*, •,v- QTAn Agricultural College ie open at Oberlin Ohio. THE STATE FAIR* together with a large number of the editorial fraternity fiom this and oth er States, had th^ pleasure of attending the State Agricultural Fair, held at Fair field on the 25 h, 2fith, and 27th of Oc tober. When we arrived in Fairfield, early Wednesday morning, the hotels were full, the streets crowded with peo ple, and it looked very much as if we should have to retire to the country to find lodging but, thanks to good fortune, we secured good lodging, and seat at the table of the CLAY HOUSE, where we fared well, as all do who stop there. By 11 o'clock A. M. there was a per feet jam In the streets, which was soon lessened by the crowd beating a retreat to t!ie Fair grounds, as the exhibition of stock commcnced at that hour. Having o an eye for exhibitions of this kind, we were promptly on the ground, to see and teport to our readers whatever was nota ble. The first ia the programme »M the show of TTDFCSESFI In this department competition was strong? and particularly so in matched and riding horses, of which there was decidedly a fine show, and one that al together exceeded our expectations.— Three stallions of the Morgan breed, one from Jefferson, one from Jackson, and one from Dubuque counties, attrac ted great nttention, and were much ad mired for the symmetry of their pro portions, as well as for superior action and good bottom. The Jefferson coun ty horse was awarded the premium, though the popular voice was fur the Jackson county horse, and we thought he ought to have had it a more perfect ren county bore off he premium, draught stallion of common stock. MULES AND ASSES: The show in this class was not so ex* tensive as that of Horses, though some excellent animals were exhibited among which were a pair of mules that took the first premium, owned by our friend Barton S. In this department, tbe show was ex tensive, and very good, and among all the fine stock on the ground, Wapello county cattle stood preeminent. Our bull for competition, but the popular voice freely conceded him to be beet brought lo the exhibition* SHEEP: Wo noticed a large number of Sheep in the pens, among which were a lot from Ohio though we could not see but that (hose raised by our Iowa farmers were just as good as those from a dis tance. A lot of sheep from Keokuk county, herded by a couple of Shepherd dogs, were much admired. We are plea sed to see our Iowa farmers engsging in thie branch of stock raising, as nothing thrives better in this country than sheep, and the market for Wool is always a sure and remunerating one. friend Persons, of Pleasant Tp. arrived drought and the late dajr mt which the too late to enter bis 4 year old Durham 'Fair IIOGS: la thie nlass the show vu 'mall, hot those exhibited were good. A fatted bog, shown by Mr. Day, of Van Buren co„ was certainly the funniest and fattest specimen of the "grunter" tribe we have ever seen and what seemed the most remarkable was, that its powers of loco motion, as well ks its propensity to "root pig or die," were not ia the least retarded by its rotundity. This hog was 17 months old and weighed 500 lbs. POULTRY: And last, though not least of all. tbe poultry appeared conspicuous. Shang hais. Cochin Chinas, Brahma Pootras, Black Spanish, &c., were there, selling at $10 per pair, and no drug at that.— Ducks, Gtese, and Turkeys, of various kinds, were on hand to make up the as sortment. The first day was entirely devoted to the examination of stock, but in the meantime Agricultural and Mechanical Implements, grains, &c., were fast filling up the spaces allotted them, and when |he Society adjourned for tbe day, the ihow in this department had become quite attracting. u^.. THE SECOND ©AY, The morning was devoted to the en try and examination of Farming Imple ments, Grains, Domestic Manufactures, &c. iic. At 11 o'clock A. M. the address was delivered by Geo. C. Dixon, Esq., nf Keokuk, and was listened to with mark ed attention by a large audience. We were engaged at the time and could not hear Mr. D., but are assured by compe tent judges that the sddress was well worthy of the occasion. Among the Agricultural Implements tn exhibition, were Manny's Reaper psnied by cavalier, end from that time end Atkins' Self Raking Resper, the' till shoot 4 displayed their horseman- •Milttil WOA -mm I latter which comes nearer making to think, than anything we seen. Everybody seemed machinery have ever pleased with this machine. One of Moflu's Grain Srparators was on the ground, and ia said to be the best thing of the kind in the U. 8. There was one other Threshing Machine on exhi bition, but of whit pattern or whose manufacture we could not learn- There were also several Com Planters exhibit ed, of which farmers generally seemed to entertain a poor opinion. There was a Grading Machineexhibtrd which plow ed and removed the dirt at the same operation, also two Smut Machines and some Marl-lc Work by Ray, of Burling ton. Plows were cxtibit«j hy Ray, of Burlington} Surbaugh Si Clemons, of ivldyville there was also Plows from Davenport, Iowa, and Tiskilwa, Ills. We saw wagons on exhibiiion from Keokuk and Bonaparte Carnages from Keokuk, Davenport, and New Haven, Conn. an excellent India Rubber Lifting Pump, from Davenport two excellent Hand Looms, from Salem Fanning Mills, a Washing Machine which drew much nttention from the ladies a lot of Cradles, Scythe Snaths, Rakes end Hoes, of excellent workmanship, manu factured ia the Penitentiary at ^.Mad ison. Od ihe west specimen of horseflesh we never saw—as display of apples was good, and the va black as jet, a neck ihM arched like ariety large though we saw none so fine swans, a perfect head and the eye of an as those shown st our county Fair by eagle, he fairly seemed to scorn the earth i Nason Roberds. Several lots of very he tread upon. But people will differ,, side of njce and the committee on horses may have!loaves of bread to try it on. Samples Letn right in their judgment. Van Bu- of Cheese by Mr. Mills, of Denmark. pa McCoy, of Keokuk county, and a pair owned by J. M. Peck, of Wapello county, which took the second premium. FINE CATTLE: the gTOtmds a large tent was erected Tor the exhibition of Grains, Domestic Manufactures, iic. Lengthwise in the centre was a table some hundred }«rdsor more long, on which Fruits, Flowers, and the handi work of the ladies were displayed This, to us, was not tbe least interesting patt of the Fair, by any means. The bntter were exhibited, and also fine J-.eecounty were shown, of fine quality tnd extraordinary size—the smallest ^weighing 120 and the largest 360 lbs, the latter of which was ptesented to James W. Grimes, Governor eleet.- The display of Cakest Preserves, Pie* kles, Domestic Wines, 4LC., was very good. In Grains the display was limited, and the only corn we saw, worthy of notice, was that exhibited by Mr. Inskeep, of this county. The samples of wheat shown were only of medium quality, the bes' being some white Fall Wheat raised in Jefferson county. The display of Vegetables was very small, probably owing to the severe was held. We saw some very neat Chairs from Vernon Iowa but no cabinet work and the show of Leather nnd articles man ufactured of leather, was limited and of an ordinary quality. Some excellent Dagoerieotypea e«K? Mezzogmphs were exhibited by Jus. P. McKinrey, of Dubuque. The advan tage of the Mezzograph is, that copies may be multiplied without limit. Mr. M. is a man of intelligence, an experi enced geologist, and altogether a gentle man. He has been enr ployed, and ex pects shortly to visit the Demoine Val ley, for the purpose of surveying and analysing the Iowa Coal bed. A collection of stuffed birds and rep tiles, of all grades, hues and colors, by Dr. Shafler, of Fairfield ai«d a case of stuffed birds from Ft. Demoine, prepar* ed by Mr. Moore, were much admired. A collection of pressed Flowers, con taining 90 varieties, and a variety of Paintings, Crayon Sketches and Pencil ings added much to the show in the la dies department. The ladies certainly deserved great credit for the show in their department. The Embroidery aud Needlework far exceeded our expectation. Among the most notable things in this line was an Ottoman cover worked by Miss Laura Jones, of Ottumwa, which look the first premium, in Embroidery, arid was real ly beautiful. s THE RIDING MATCH. This important and interesting feature of the Fair, it was announced, would take place at 3 o'clock, and before that hour arrived a circle of spectators had formed around tbe show ground at ieast six deep, and numbering, we should judge, at least six thousand. The ladies who rode for the prize (a fine gold watch) were Miss Eliza ). Hodges, of Iowa City Miss E. A. Porter, of Mt. Pleasant Mrs. Greene and Misses L. Park and Belle Turner, of Lee county Miss Maria Minton, of Van Buren Mrs. A. Eckart and Misses Kate Pope, H. Ball and Cyathia Ball, of Jefleison county. The committee appointed to award the prize were: Mrs. P. L. lluyette, of Jefferson Miss Albertson, of Lee: Miss Alcinda Inskeep, of Wapello Gen. Morgan, of Burlington Judge Lowe, of Keokuk T. II. Benton, of Iowa City, and H. Trimble, of Bloomfisld. At 3 o'clock the ladies entered the ring, if we may so term it, each accom- 'tmm&mwSi ship. The ladies oil rode admirably, but conspicuous above all, with the spec tatore, shone the "Iowa City girl."-—• The evening being windy, anil not a fa vorable ore for the fair equestchns, it was decided to have then ride agpwI at 10 o'clock next day. THE THIRD DAY, The principal attraction was the ding match, which detained many in Fairfield who would have left the even ing before. At lOo'dloek fc (to the same eompet itors for the prile, who had rode (lie evening before, nppeared on the show giound. The riding of rach lady was remarkably good, and each of the fair' equrstrnns seemed to have friends on I her side though Mis Hedges of lo-1 wa City, aged 13, and who rode a very spirited young li.trse, seemed to be thej favorite with the large majority of the' spectators. Her riding could not be said to be very graceful, but still, fur one so young, it must be admitted by ail that for bold and reckless riding she distanced all competitors. Indeed, we have never seen any one equal her.— The committee, however, were not so taken with her bold and reckless riding as they were with the graceful manner with which Miss Belle Turner acquitted herself, and to whom they prevented the prize. We cannot say but that the award was right and politic, but the spectators did not pgree with the com mittee, and chcers for the "Iowa City girl*' were loud and long, in response to which she rode twice more round tbe ring putting her horse to his full speed. and passed ouJ of the enclosure cm id deafening cheers. A collecti n was in stantly set on foot, and before we lefi the ground 101 had been contributed for Mi?s Hodges, and we learn thnt af terwards the'sum was raised to $215 and that Dr. Wear generously proffer red her six months schooling and board free of charge. So in the end the result was much better for the crowd's favorite than if she had received the prize. As a fitting finalu to (he matter. Col. Clagget, with his usual generosity, pre sented each lady equestrian with a splen did gold ring. And we cannot refrain from remarking here that the Society is under great obligations to Col. Claggel, and Dr. Shaffer, the See'v, for their un tiring exertions throughout, to render'.lie Fair worthy of our great and growing young State. Nothing in their power was left undone, and we must say that their efforts were signally successful in getting up a State Fair that would do credit to much older States. During the three days that the Fa4r lasted there were thousands in attendance. and persons from almost every State in .1,. Union many of whom rema,k«l that they had never seen so large an as semblage collected where such good or- der and sobriety was maintained. Du ring the whole time, and in the immense crowd present, we saw but one imn thai was the least intoxicated, aud did not ... i it i, head* this paragraph bear a harsh word spoken. Universal cood humor prevailed, and all seemed to enjoy themselves to ihe utmost. The Survey is rapidly going on, the Engineers being now some 10 miles ar bove Ottumwa.

It will burst forth in spite of all the accumulated rubbish that cen turies of falsehood and misrepresentatioi. may heap upon it. Like the false philosophy of the mighty Stagyrite, whose erroneous system swayed the mind? of the whole civilized world for r.early 200 years, it shook to its basis and crumbled into dust when the dawn of mental agitation began to ferment, and worked the stagnant pools of Romish corruption into ihe transparent liquid that an inflammation and dangerous allopath is not at all homogeneons to the morbid de rangement of the immaterial principle which alone is disorganized, but has, from its crudity and heterogenous admixture a tendency to ex cite internal atfee- tions.

The demeanor of the passengers* on bovrd the Artie, all accounts a^ree, was calm, collected and heroic, afier they had recovered from the shock of the lid ings thai their situation was desperate. Tlie conduct of the crew and most of the officers was cowardly and base. Capt. Luce is not to be included in ibis cen sure. Dorian, ihe officer who escaped, is also exempted from it. lie sa)s that if the officers and men had remained by the ship, all or nearly all of the passen gers would have been saved. They fled, and it was only until two hours after their desertion thai the main yard was lowered lo enable them to form a raft. He say a that with the masts, spars, and culling off the hurricane deck, a raft could have been formed capable of carry ing the whole of them. IIe further states that among ihe passengers on board the Arctic he never saw men more coollv courageous and thai their quiet resigna tion ind implicit confidence in the capi. and officers of the ship were such as ii is impossible to surpass.

One more extract and I have done on this point. It will be found in the I Dessertation read by Theodore Still, M. D., at the annual meeting of the Connecticut Medical Society, May 14th, 1846. In that paper he says: "The methods of treatment pursued by my respected medical brethren, are as different as light from darkness, and I confess it is not a matter of surprise that mankind should lose their confidence in medical men, when it is so well known that there is such entire discrepan cy amoi.g them."
