tho shore, where dash's the western surge.
This alene marks her enterprises and her fu
ture glory. Coming thousands will here enjoy,
in their happy shades, the ease end the com
forts flowing from the step which the wisdom
of their fathers has planned, and which their
energy is executing.
Beware of "vidders."-SAiivt Vellkr.
'The editor is absent and a principal com
positor sick, which must account for the scarci
ty ef reading matter in to-days paper.
The appearance of this little city, of about
three thousand inhabitants, has many paints of
interest. As you approach it on coming up the
river, the bold outline ef the western bluff be
tomes broken, and as you draw nearer there
epens before you a recess, bounded en either
land by a precipitous hill, in which you etlength
perceive a city to be nestled, stretching at first
long the river bank, and then climbing the lull
that rises in the rear. This view, caught as
the morning sun gilds it with its beams, is
But the view from the river in the morning
is compensated by the view from the hill in the
evening. Mount the hill back of the city where
the golden glare ef mid-day is fading into the
mellow light f eveninr. and see. mirrored
in the motionless, crystal ware, the hills and
weeds of the rivers' banks, the smiling face of
tho city, tko ature sky, broken with clouds, and
tho setting aun, the painter of oil this fair pic
ture, juat giving it a last look, as he hastens
away to shed morning on another continent, and
to point the way by which tho busy pich be
low shall pursue their industrious course, until
they have opened an easy passage direotly to
that wealthy land.
Ascending tho abrupt bluffs, to tho north and
south, and still sew views greet you, full of
beauty and interest.
As you come down the river from tho north,
upon turning a point, you shoot immediately up
on the city, and stare with aurprise to aee a hu
sy city, thus suddenly start forth to sight, from
the midst of a calm, and wilderness solitude.
Two or three churches point their spires to
wards heaven, and two or three more, if they do
vet exhibit so conspicuous outward sign, it is to
aend up as lofty witnesses to heaven, Iron their
worship within their walls.
A lively business is carried en by several
stores, packers, and forwarding houses.
Mechunics also flourish ; but there is an a-
fcundant opening for establishments in almost
every branch of the manufacturering interest ;
and it is to be hoped that the way will be found
for them to be established. A good back coun
try, ani) a railroad in process of construction,
eena to give them strong onceuragement.
And that railroad itself its farthest bourne
tho Pacific shore leads our contemplations out
of the city, from which it starts into the limit
less region beyond, and forward into the teem
ang future. Hannibal is the second city
which eeco the fleet iron courser of the prairies
atarting out from her bosom to stop only upon
A lady fair, with golden hnir
And eyes as bright as stars,
With pensive air, sat in a chair,
Within the railroad cars.
On her lip, sucking of pap,
Reclining was a baby
Who might have been about sixteen
Months old maybe.
The baby cried, and then she sighed,
And wished its pa wax home,
An old gent near asked her the year
In which its pa had-mizzled.
She raised her eyes, and then she cries.
In sentimental tone;
"7'Arfc long ytars I've passed in tears.
Since Villiara is been gone."
The gent, says ho, "how can it te!
Your babe is but n ehilt.,,
What's that to me, dear sir?" says she,
".Vi husband's often irrit."
This auestion is l.aing brought to practical
issue. 11 is aurnilt-'J Hut a woman may htlv
endeavor te persuade her husband brother or
son to keep away Tram the grog-shop but it u
not so fully conceded that she mi) make efforts
to keep the grog-shop away from them. In
Michigan, however, she has claimed and exer
cised this right with the happiest results. In
recurring to the history of the late struggle for
tho Maine Law in that State the Temperance
Advocate says :
"In Leoni the ladies went to the place ef vo
ting, distributed votes, labored with the oppos
ers of th! V ru succeeded in convincing ma
ny of the e-r'r o their ways.
"In TeuumM.li the principal ladies af tho vil
lage organized and appointed committees to in
duce the voters of the town to go and
JUST arrived, the Choir Melodies, the Dulcimer, the
C'nii.ii Siicieil, Mason's Sacred Harps, Christian
Melodiest the Christian Psalmist, numeral. Also a
variety of Psalms and Hymns.
