Eddyville is the place to cross the Demoine River to go west circumstances may fora time throw travel upon a different route but tha trav elling public will learn at last that it 'does rot pay' to fight against nature." Some "dead head" has been pulling the wool over the editor's eyes about the stage company crossing at Eddyville. fhey have no notion of travelling 30 miles to get to Albia, when it can be done in 24. Thto agent of the company hasn't heard of any such arrangements as yet! And those "circumstances," (such as the B. ii Mo. R. Railroad,) will make this the permanent and main cross ing of the Demoine to all the country west. Eddyville is a good crossing, but it is too far out of the way. Messrs.

Miss Hornby has already taught one term in this place, and as far as we have learned has given universal satisfaction. Miss Street has never taught before, but from our acquaintance with her we are satisfied that she is fully qualified and ivill make a popular teacher. There is no need of sending children abroad when they can be taughl as well at home. BP* The Wheat crop, in the whole Northeast p*rt of this county, is almost au entire failure, the chinch bug having nearly destroyed it. We also learn that the bugs have commenced on the corn in that section and are literally eating it up. Some fields of corn have been ploughed up for the purpose of stopping their ravages. In the Southeast corner, and on the Weft side of the Desmoines the crop will probably be an average one. %W Mr. liawley ia making prepara tion to build an addition of 60 feet to his store room, two stories high.

Chicago being a distrib uting office, a vast amount of matter from the East and West is resorted here, and is taken from bags which are not open ed at any other point. For instance, letters and packages from Galena,vor any other western point destined for the East are put into bags at Galena, which are not opened until ihey reach here. They are redistributed here, and the bags for various points in which they are placed are not opened again till they reach New York or the points for which they are destined. The Departmental Washing ton of course was led to suspect, from the fact that matter which had been mailed at Galena and other places, and distributed here, never reached its desti nation, that the depredations were com mitted in this office, and directed Mr. Pinkerton to devote his whole attention to ferreting out the thitf. The result was the arrest of Denniston after a very laborious but indefatigable investigation. Having received information that his man intended lo leave the city on Sun day, Mr. P. proceeded to hia boarding house on Monroe street, on Saturday morning, and arrested Denniston, who appeared greatly agitated. He took two gold dollars from his vest pocket when arrested, and threw them away, proba bly under the impression that Mr. P. had "spotted him" like he had his brother, by marking a gold dollar and placing it in a letter. Upon searching his writing desk, $100 in gold and $35 in hills were fonnd. Six dollars was foun] in a wallet. Behind a picture of the Virgin Mary in bis room, between the wooden back and the picture, $1,403 in Eastern bills were found. Behind a picture of an Indian warrior, concealed in the same way, were $1,000 in East em bills. Behind a picture of "High land levers,*' $900 was found. In a daguerreotype of his mother, $300 was found, viz., six $50 bills. In all the sum found amounted to about $3,800. A short time since the Denr.istons, who had came to the city very poor, purchased a valuable farm for their father, and it is thought have been investing the fruits of their robberies in other ways- On Saturday, after arrest, Dertniston owned up to the abstraction of the monej' to the Postmaster, and to Wm. J. Brown, Esq., the agent of the Department. He says he never stopped to read the letters, but tore them up, or destroyed them in some other way as fast as he took them. Mr. Pinkeiton desires us to say that persons failing to receive money which had been mailed to them, can write him, giving date of letters, description of bills, and the place to which the letters were directed, lie can undertake to find no money of which he does not get a des cription. Messrs. Prussitrg & Wadsworth have identified $200 of the Rocfcford Bank, mailed by them. De nniston is quite illiterate, being not mote than able to perform the duty which was assigned him in the Post Office, which' was reading the addresses of the letters, and so plaeing them that the dis tributor could see to distribute them in their respective bags. We learn that he told Mr. Brown that all he wanted was to have the amount of his bail fixed that be would never go to $*1*™ ^0 I»OSt faster. jhim out.

Dennis'on, who made a pretence of going eust to procure the sum from his relations, but it is since thought, obtained it here, hav ing probably stolen from time to time, more than sufficient to pay that sum.— Perry Denniston has never appeared since he was bailed out and probably never will. Since the arrest and exam ination of Perry, the robberies have rather increased than diminished and of late became so frequent, and of an ex tent so alarming, that the Department at Washington sent on word here that somdhing must be done and that speed ily. Accordingly Mr. Pinkerton was di rected to make. investigation into the affair, which lie commenced by a genera) surveillance of all the clerks in the office numbering some forty or fifty. After a while hu su5p:cions rested upon Theo dore F. Denniston, brother of Perry, and nephew of the i'ost Mas er, who wiih a salary of only $500 per annum, was living in a very expensive style, frequent ing Young America, houses of ill fame in fact, establishments of all kinos where pleasure was to be puichased. For a bout two months, Mr. Pinkerton kept a strict watch on his man, and for the past two months he scarcely ever left him.— lie followed him to all his haunts d:s guised in various ways 1 He slept un der the beds in houses in which the young man was staying. In fact he dog ged him so closely that every action of his was laid open to hitr.. In a short time he found that Denniston was en gjged in exchanging money at various brokers officcs in the city. On Tuesday last he exchanged $405 at Morford Bro's, $195 at Huntington & Go's arid other sums at other establishments, amounting in all to $l,dl0, which was the extern of but one mornings plunder. f*-rt'^ii,*lri,wwaittii |, i. i„ ,he IWntiary, The Indiana Canal War Again. TO ARMS! TO AlllfIS!! A letter from Terre Haute to the edi tor of the Evansville Enquirer, dated June 30, states that the Lunge Creek Reservoir was cut by the' Black Boys" on the previous night, but that the cut was discovered in time to save the water. The letter concludes: A company of from 10 to 20 true men are now leaving (1 i o'clock A. M..) thi!a place for the seat of war, and, it is hoped will reach there in time to stop further depredations. Major Tim Dowling loft this morning for Indianapolis to report to the Governor. More trouble is antici pated. J. W. Woon writes a letter to J. S. GAVITT, Sheriff of Evansville, concern ing the work, trial and discharge of such of the (May Co. rioters as had been ar rested. YVe quote the most interesting part The date is, Terre Ilaute, June 29th, 1855i The trial of the persona arretted in Clay Co., came off )esterday, and, as we predicted, though the State proved by two witnesses that several of them were guilty, the defense had no difficulty in proving an alibi, or in convincing the Court that these two witnesses were un worthy of belief. Some forty persons were examined, living in the vicinity of these outrages, and in the neighborhoods where the men who have done the work must have come from, yet every man swore that he never had any knowledge that i was to be done nor did he hive any idea who did it. When an alibi could not be proven, (and it was impossible in some of the cases to find a pretext for it.) they resort ed to impeachment, anu it was no hard task to convince a (.'lay county justice, that any evidence establishing the guilt of the parties was unworthy of belief. Thus has ended in a legal farce, the last effort which (it is hoped) the State of Indiana will ever make lo bring an offender against the law lo justice in Clay county. The State has exhausted every effort, through the authorities in Clay county,! to protect publ*c or private property, and it has hereafter to be at the mercy of an unprincipled and irresponsible mob or the Slate must find some means to arrest offenders and take them out of Clay county for trial. Alter ihe adjournment of Court, Capt. John Osborn addressed the crowd in a highly inflammatory speech, denouncing the Governor, the military, and the proc lamations, in measured terms, and saying but for his efforts, and those of a few other "law abiding citizens," in restrain ing the people, the flower of Evansville would have been trodden beneath the feet of Clay, or drowned in blood—or thrown in the canal.
