For the benefit of those who, like myself, travel but little, and are consequently ignorant o! the great improvements which have taken place lately, especially in our large cities, I pro note to relate the following incident. During a recent trip, I did myself the honor to secure a room at the far-famed "Planter i House," in tha city of St, Louis. Desiring to inquire for a friend, whom I ex jxcted to meet at this house, I stepped into tha apartment in which the Proprietor or hit deputy is commonly to be round, una seeing several Gentlemen, who, I supposed were prob. ably the Proprietors, I inquired of one, if "the Br Keeper" was in? The man gave me a scrutinizing glunce, and pointing to the floor beneath our feet, indignant ly replied "I tuppose the Bar Keeper it below Acre, sir It you mean the Clbbb, he will be in the orrics after a while." Of course, I did not interrogate the gentleman further; but waited patiently for the cuu Muting, meantime, upon the criminal ignor enee and presumption which prompted me to perpetrate such a gross violation of Fashionable metropolitan hotel teohnology, as to substitute Bar Keeper and Bar Room for Ciui and or VICE. Now, our best Hotels in Hannibal have end a room which is called "the liar Room" and the polite and accommodating dignitary who pre sides therein, is usually denominated ''the Rnr Keeper" Those rooms are kept and those offi cials demean themselves, in a manner whioh is agreeable to the' most respectable travelers, and honorable to the proprietors, but what there is associated with the "Bar Room" of the Planter! Jloutt which should construe an inquiry for 'the Bar Keeper' into an insult J or justify an inde corous response, to what was intended to be civil question, I am st a loss to divine. Otone thing I am certain, I do not intend, voluntarily . at. a i. . io suojeoi myseu 10 a repetition oi tne imiigtu it ana i wouia aavise my menus to be unon their P's and Q's, and endeavor to be posted up in Hotel nomenclature before they conclude to put up,' .at tha "Planter's House.'r B.

TEX XAYOR Tt, TBI FXOPLX. MKLBAKKft REQUESTED TO BESIOK 1 A toast Anril feel. Among tha many attempts to play off practical jokoj upon the tint ot April, that oi a may, at one oi the boarding houses of our city, is tha ban we have ever heard of. It was this: She procured from the marble-yard several pieces of beautiful white marble, and bieakias them ud into niue lumps, put them into the sugar-bowls. ine counteneii was complete no unsus pecting persona could have detected the fraud. Soon supper was ready the tea was poured sod the supar bowls passed round the table nobody's tea was sweet enough, and the sugar refused positively to melt. They around their spoons acainst it. and stirred and stirred again, but it was no to. The sugar proved to be marble, and , they, for ooce, proved to be April Fools. Charleston attmaare. tfOBBBatBSSsanBttamsaa At seven o'clock, last night, every ave nue leading to the Mechanics' Institute was thronged by the populace, and in a half hour the capacious aiva of Greenwood I fall was tilled to its utmost capacity by a respectable and orderly, but highlv indig n&nt concourse of citizens, who had assem bled, on n Khurt notice, to express their feeling at the course pursued by Mayor sndbaker, on bundav morning last, in pre venting Mr. rvii'tlund, the street preacher, from siieuking in Fill h street Market Space. Mr. J. b. Weatherby was elected 1'resi- dent, and Dr. II. b. .Newton, Dr. A. Whip ple, Mr. John Whetstone, and Mr. John Fmbus, Vico Presidents. George Stack- house and A. W. Armstrong were appoint ed becreiaties. On motion, thi following gentlemen were appointed a Committee to draft reso- utions exprestiive ot the sense ot meeting: John b. .ixon, U. Aldrich, Dr. Armstrong iNathaniel Uurilet, and b. 15. W. McLean. In the alienee ot the committee, Andy Gillin, Esq , tx prevJent of the late City Council, being loudly called for, took the stand. He aid that he had not come to Hie meeting to make a speech, but with the same feeling that filled the breast of every one present, a leelmg ol deep indignation. iv nen tue utterly oi tne rress or oi speech is trampled on a free people should arhe. it was lor inn sacreu principle that our forefathers bled and died, and we will not see it dishonored with impunity. What brings this immense concourse here! A free American citizen has been nut down bv the rope of Home or his confedrates T 1 his is no new Hung; it was determined on at Baltimore, a year ago, by Catholic Priests and Jesuits, and I warn you, fellow citizens, against the machinations of that party. 1 am no public speaker, but I felt it a duty to give you my sentiments on this question. 1 am opposed to Popery and Jesuitism, and will be while I live. Mr. Giffi.Vs remarks were frequently in terrupted with vociferous cheering, and i loud huzza when he closed, showed that his sentiments were unanimously approved A call wa next made for Spooner, de signed, no doubt, for the Judge, but he not appearing, his brother, 1 nomas bpooner, hardware merchant on Main street, took the rostrum. lie said he might not be the man called for, but having the aame name, and being an American citizen, he would resond to"the call. The sacied right of r res bpeech had been invaded by our c.hie municipal officer, and he should be reques ted to surrender his authority to the peopta, from whom he received it. (Great cheer ins.) lie dwelt at' somn lencth on the rights of American citizens, in a train ofl patriotic eloquence mat, orongni lortn im mense applause from the multitude and closed by urging Republicans, that while they claimed their own rights, to lorbear en croaching upon those of others. Mr. Handy, late candidate lor rroeeouung Attorney in the Polio Court wot called out. He said he had cume Up, as all had done, to merely be an auditor. This is not the first time my voice hat been raised on this or a kindred toplo. If there is anything an American oitisen holds mora dear than another, it is free speech. This is tha first time a man in tint Republic hat been oiuoially silenced while speaking Ins sen timents. Ail political parties hold the right of Free Speeoh as sacred. And who is this that dares attack it? Not the Pemooralio party though the Mayor was aleeted by its vote. The attaoic it made by en agent, who is acting by an under influence which it taking him out of the rankt. Hit prctent supporters are cluciiy foreigners, whom we have taken to our bosom, and who would now inflict a deathly sting. We have the right to otsembla to ducusi religiout or eivil topict, and ha who dares invade such right, will be held responsible. Mr. Handy laid he did not know Mr. Kirklaml, the gentle man upon whom this eutmge wos personally committed, nor did he desire particularly to know him, for it is the principle involved for which we are contending, and tor which we will ever war. (To be Contlnaed.) tIM?XKAlCZ XXXTIXO. (Conclusion.) The meeting? organized according to adjourn ment, when the committee of five ladies made the report, verbally, as follows : That the eommilteo, alter organizing them telvet, excepting airs. Henry, who was upon motion excused from acting, and Mrs. f leid ac cepting the appointment, making the committee complete 1 hey report that they have obtained the con tent of a portion of the merchants and grocers to ubandon liie trade the taverns refuting to have anything to do with that matter. Une genllemAti, Mr. II. i. Burns nobly tie daring nis determination to abandon the trade, at all hazards, whilst on tha contrury two firms were determined not to abandon it. After a few appropriate remarks by Rev Wm. Rots A motion was made to adopt tha report car ried. On motion, a committee of ihrfe persons wat then appointed, consisting ol M. L. iuenns, l)r Wilson uiul Jus. Atkisson, nnd on motion ot K. H. Powers, the Chnirintn was added to the com miitee whoso duty it it to propose a plan and submit :!:; same to the merchant and others, which may effect the object to devoutly desired, and report tint evening. Un motion, Mr. Hots was requested to ten der the wannest thanks of this meeting to the ladies, for their very prompt and energetic ac tion in visiting the merchants and others, and tor their ellortt in behalf of the Temperance re form, after which the committee was dis charged. Mr. Ross then too up the tubtect of tue Li cento Law, in relation to the talo of Alcohol, which tubject he handled in a masterly manner, shewing and proving conclusively, ihe moral wrong in legit lative bodiet, in making laws, au thorizing and legalizing the liquor traffic. After which the following resolutions were introduced and adopted : Ketolved, by tint meeting: 1st. That to those gentlemen composing the firms which have so prominently come out and plaeed their names to the articles of agreement, binding themselves to abandon the traffic in ardent tpiiits, upon the conaiuon utai ail tnose engaged in such tralhc in this place would do likewise, the warmest thanks of the friends of the Temperance reform is due, and hereby cordially extended. Zd. lhat in the opinion or. this meeting, those persons engsged in the liquor trafllo who have refused to abandon it, have exhibited a determi nation to soatter broadcast through the land the seeds of disease, the bane of society, and the curta ot the human family, by still clinging to ana countenancing, ana aiding and abetting in .L- .1 1 1.1 .".!

NOBLE litBOIIM. Amon? tho many intrepid pertons who ren dered noble tervice to the tulferert in this dread ful catastrophe, we are impelled to mention the nume of Mr. Brock Carroll, in particular. This gentleman wat about leaving the wharf at Nor . I .- " . I .LI. wulK to go on a mooting excursion, wnen una accident occurred. Immediately in teeing the cart go into the draw, ha sprung into the water, and swam ta a boat, which he quickly unmoored, and rowed to the nearest ctr, whioh was partial- lyjnsible above water; and dashing through tho window, he drew out in succetsioti, Mr. Nathan Harris, of Montgomery, Alabama, his three children and nurte, together with allien, and iut in with them for the tuore; on landing, Mr. larrit embraced him, and eagerly pulling out hit pocket book, filled with money, oll'ered it t him, laying, "lake it, thou tavier ol my children: 1 wish it was more; 1 cannot otherwise express my heartfelt gratitude." "All right, sir " said the noble hearted fellow don'i want you to insult me, though,' and, seizing an axe, he pushed a jam lor the wreck, and with lusty blows and superhuman exertiena soon made a huge hole in the car's side; and rer cued as many as tha boat would hold, when he was forced to return reluctantly to the shore with his freight of rescued lives. "Ah 1" said he, "if there had been a f w moro boats, and some one to manage mine, I could have got inside ot the car and have drawn out a great many that I saw rising to the surface, and sinking again to tho bottom to die; it was awful to see their agonized features, all wounded and bloody, as they struggled with the energies of despair, for dear, dear life." Muny of those who were ttriving for life, when he left with his boat-full, were silent in the long tleep of death, on hi return. "Ah, it made me feel good, said he, "when I drew the terrified little cuilJreii from the water in the car." There wat only the upper part of one tid above water. Ho was alraid that his .treiigti. would fail him before he could fiuih hit good work, but laid he, "my muscle icll just like tlcel bars, at I swung ibe axe, avid state in the panels." When all was finished and bo more lives could be taved, ha felt that hit duty was accom plished. The many horrors he had to witness) tho mangled and maimed; the agony of bereaved relatives; and the terror stricken people making desperate efforti to render assistance, but par. feotly paralyzed through horror at. the awful event, made a deep impression onliim. Wa think too much praise cannot be given to Mr. Carroll, for his noble conduct in this case. Mr. Carroll is a resident of Norwalk, and re cently of Brooklya, New York. The derrick arrived in Norwalk latt evening, and will be put into rtquitition to-morrow. Mr. While, the witness yesterday, had tha pleasure of seeing his friends (wife and lister,) who carao on in entwec to a telegraphic diipatch received on Sunday latt The diipatch led them to believe that he was in a dangerous situ ation; and when the ladies came into the waiting room, they were sobbing bitterly. We had the pleasure to inform them of the safety of their relatie, and words could not portray the joy which beamed on their countenances at the wel come intelligence. This morning we ssw them at the depot just before leaving for home, and the quiet joy of the two as they seemed to cling more closely to each other from tho recollec tions of the peril which her husband had so re cently been reseued from, can bo imagined beU ter than described. We saw the Conductor to-day, wl. i. Bucfc ' better, though somewhat soared. Our Reporters are under great obligations to Mr. Warner, Cashier ol Fairfield Co.

Miss Griswold, we are happy to say, is much, better ; she has rested wall, and wilj in all pro bability recover. We inquired after her healk at a late hour last evening, and learned the above. Dr. Alexander IL Stephana was in at tendance on her yesterday afternoon, and enter tains great hopes of her recovery. We leam that Mrs. Fluent, of Lancaster.
