But last Sunday somebody put some physio in the jug. Before starling, one of the rew became very much indisposed, and went home.

Next time, no doubt, they will be caratut to see mat mere ia no tartar emetic io the jug. We suust apologize to "A Strong-Minded Woman," about the communication entitled ''Fanny Fern."

Being unavoidably detained at thin place, near a hall day, I while away a moment. 'o mention what 1 see and hear. The first object which altracle the atten tion of the traveler, on his nnival here, by) boat, it the spacious depot for the St. Louis and Keokuk packet line. This is a large frame building, at the water's edge, some 200 by 100 feet, on the ground. The first and entrance lloor, it partly planked and partly eurlh, with large doors, through which freight it debarked from, and received into the boats. The doors are large enough for dravs to enter, and turn round and all being under a good roof and dry, renders it very convenient. The second story is well furnished, with good floors, and several rooms are pro vided with desks, chairs and counters, r,t ftila Mnrmnn Fnfimnmnl . fm """" r .... r.

The building it so close to the deep water, (the bank being filled out,) that boats lie up to it as close and convenient as to a wharf boat. I do not know whether other than the company's boats are permitted to land at it ; but certain it it, that if the company chose to do so, they could engross the commission and shipment, or all t'.e goods and producs consigned to this place. I, however, hear no complaint of this ; but the reason may be found in the next object, which at times, very forcibly strikes the attention of the traveler. This is the muddy and impassable condition ol lhe wharf, and all the streets. The city is much in the condition of en- othgr, which wo know. Their spirit of enterprize has induced them to cut out more work than their means will enable them to finiah. They have cut down, due up, an practically filled up their streets, all over the city, and many ef them, where a dray, much loss a maiket wagon, never had been, and never will necessarily go; forgetting the cost of paving, graveling or planking which they are unable to do to render, as good at they were before they were thus improv.d. The excavation and inconveni ence of peregrenation, by riding or walk- ng through the mud-holes and svramps, or hill sides, far outweighs their prospective conviencet. The next remarkable thin". 3 though not pertaining to city government, is the Mormon Camp, just out side of the corporation. The sight justifies the excur sion through the mud. On the plane back of the high grounds of the city, all at once you are astonished at the city of tents, which pops into view. Before the settle ment of California, our only accounts of such assemblages and encampments were of the Israelites of old.
