Thus, of n number of town contending for

The history and present posiliju of Hannibal

We anxiously search tho future with a glass
of "hextra double million magnifying power,"
m Samuel Wallar, Esq., would have said.
"When I get to be n man," snys the boy who
has jut put on hi first pair of pantaloons, "1

grow tip other dream light up hit path, calling
around him all the glories of a brilliant future,
with none of its drawbacks. As time progress
ri, difficulties, impediments and obstrucliens
unexpectedly start up and glare upon hint like
unbidden phantoms. Then a shadow begins to
lull upon his prospects. The view becomes
"mixed." There is no longer a monotony er
flowers and rainbows. An unskillful artist, he
nt first put nothing but light in hi pictures.
Experience learns him to intreduco some sha
ding, also, lie discover that no fairy attends
him to change pumpkins into splendid carriages,
or hares to magnificent horses, or everything he
touches, instantaneously to gold. Fairies slow
er in their movements, and of sterner aspect,
but not less potent for good, are to control his
destinies: these are Labor, Self-denial, Patience
and rrevcranco.
Cities and nutiens aro governed by the same
feelings that rule the dcstiuiei of individuals.
A man coming ta this section in ISIti, would
have been struck with the apparent necessity
for a town at considerable importance somewhere
on the west bank of the Mississippi, between St.
Louis and the Lower Rapids. Not looking to a
railroad future, which, like second Nature,
would most probably bestow Fortune' favors
promiscuously, and in seeming confuMon; but
considering only the commercial advantages
developed, it would have appeared that St.
Louis must forever remain the central sun, Wi
ving revolving around it the lesser light stud
ding the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. All
the produce concentrated at these points might
be expected to be poured into St. Louis, nnd
thonca would be drawn all their supplies for the
interior. Under such circumstances, no rrry
important town could be expected to spring up
There would be races for precedence, fostering,
and in turn cheered on by local rivalries and
petty jealousies, the small victory finally to be
awarded to that town which should manage to
gt tho beat atari, or which might be favored
with some neighborhood advantages. Would
this fortunate town be Louisiana, or Ilannibul
or Fahnyra, er Marion City, Canton, Tully
Lagrange or Alexandria ? All these places had
a fin acope af country back of them, though
Hannibat was probably best situated, in that re-
apect, the radius of her circle of trade being 70
to 100 miles, ever a country unsurpassed io pro
duotive capacity, and which, by immigration
was rapidly increasing in population. Alexan
dria ia tao near Keokuk. Lagrange, Tully and
Canton could not be expected to advance much
farther than they Lave gone, at they had Quin.
Mr. Hull ought net to be guilty of a great
many absurdities equal to that of selling his
stock in the Hannibal nnd St. Jcsepli Riilioud
at twenty per cent, below pari That itroke
of policy A'a n dead failure. Instead of bring
ing discredit upon the road, it only cuiwcd the
perpetrutor to be laughed at.
Thcro is one aggravated phase of this act of
ridiculous folly, from which wo aro happily able
to relieve Mr. H ill. On tho authority of a gen
tleman we published n short time ago a state
mcnt that Mr. 1111 had l o,n offered par at St.
Joseph just previously to selling out in this city.
Phis Mr. Hall pronounces a "lie. ' Wa could
or course know nothing about what wa going
on at Saint Joseph, except through information
lerived from others. Our informant confese
that he mijil have been mistaken, and wo fairly
concludo that he was mistaken.
A gentleman in SI. Joseph advertise that he
w ill buy all tho stock in tho Hannibal and Saint
Joseph Railread that may be offered for sule at
'20 pur cent, discount. Wo presume, however,
that ho may save himself further trouble. Mr.
I tail's is probably tho last of the lot.

The proficiency of the scholars wa very satis

enough counties In tho Third District have been
heard from to justify the assertion that L1ND-
Mr. Thompson has obtninod about two-thirds
of the vote of the county for Circuit Clerk. Mr.
Dickerson ought not to complain ; for, as one of
our merchants says, "ho could hardly expect us
young men to vote for an old bachelor I " We
don't like to encourage them; they ought to do
