Nearly every slate and ter ritory of the United Stales will have a collective exhibit, some of them much larger and finer than last year. Our own state, for example, lias Geeurod third more space than it The next week my customers occupied last year. New Orleans is regarded as luc very uesi piacc possioie for a North, Central and South American exposition. It is, practically, I lie center of American population, and by its situ ation the key to continental trade. With the Mississippi and its navigable tributa ries on the north, supplemented by an elaborate network of railroads and lines of steamers plying between it and putts soutli of the United States, it is tbe nat lira! and the inevitable centre of Ameri can traffic. Then, too, Ihe population, being purtly Latin and partly Anglo- Saxon, is well adapted to being the con front they could truly tell; nocting link between tho Latin countries ahead 01 ftnd our own country.

It is an exposition, the like of which one would be glad to nav twentv-live cents to see, were door keepers engaged and admission charged. Rut there are no doorkeepers, no ailum sion fee; everything is free anil op. u to is en-reptl Work upon the Burlington it Northern is progressing rapidly. Blturrtiv lasl the graders were as near St. Paul as Newport, the first station out from St. Paul on the Milwaukee & St. Paul road, The other side of that point no grading has been done, as it has not yet been de cided by which route the new road will enter St. Paul. Surveys have been made parallelling the Milwaukee & St. Paul road, and also ruuning up back of tbe bluff, and then coming down Phulen valley, iletween Prescott and the Chip pewa river, the old Winona, Aluia fc Northern built some thirty miles of road. The grade of this work is now being raised.' South of. the Chippewa river track layers wilt be put at work this week, and work on the bridges will be. begun as soon as permission can be ruci eived from tli;i secretary of war. The new line from St. Paul to Hastings, its sec end crossing of the Milwaukee & St. Paul, will be a little longer than the river road, but what it loses in distance il will make up in grade. Tho Milwau kee's grade is thirty -two feet to tbe mile, while the new road is built upon a 3-deg. curve, and has only a grade ot sixteen feet to tho mile. This will enable it to make equally fast lime, ami in addition to this haul a much larger and heavier train than the Milwaukee & St. Paul. It seems that Ihe temptatiou to cut rates among railroad companies under agreement not p do so is so great that they do not mind the possible prospect of paying a line much heavier than the prollt derived from an undetected violatiou of agreement. Of course, it is surmised that there are so many instances of rate cut ting where Ihe oll'ender is not detected us to allow the road doing the cutting a nice little prollt after paying tines where de tection was tiuavoidable. Tl.o latest in stance of a road receiving a heavy line has just been made public. Mr. K. P. Wilson, arbitrator of tbe Chicago, St. Louis & Missouri river passenger agree ment, has sent out a decision in a case tried by him, wherein the Hock Island road was Ihe plaiulill and the llurliogton the defendant. The latter road was ae eased wf selling a certain ticket at a cut rate, and of changing the ticket aflcr the cut had been detected. The arbitrator found the llurlington road guilty, and im posed a fine of $100. Suit bus been commenced in Knox counly entitled Fannie Epperson vC, 1. & tj. 11. H. conimpany, damages $5,1)110, It is alleged by the plaintiff that on the Fourth of July last she was in Alexis, where a celebration was in progress. While mingling with a crowd on the do pot platform, she was struck iu the face and ucck by parts of an exploded torpedo It is claimed that a C, B. & (J. engineer placed a tm-prdo. inich as are used in the service of the road, on the track in front of the engine. When the locomotive paHsed over the torpedo it exploded, ins juring the young lady as mentioned. In consequence of tbe wounds indicted, one side of her face has become partially par alyzed and so disfiured. There was no apparent necessity for the putting down of a torpedo, other than perhaps a desire to celebrate with the rest. A circular defining the jurisdiction of the different division freight agents of llw Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Peul road just issued by General Freight Agent Bird assigns Mr. O. F. White's territory as Davenport, Rook Island and Moline, also from Davenport to Jackson Junction, inclusive; from Parolta to Farley inclu sive, and from Eldridge to Maquoketa, Inclusive, to work in connection with D.

President Cable, of the K ick Island road, held a short conference Tuesday at St. Paul with General Manager Callaway, of the Union P.icille, and then started for .Minneapolis to attend the annual meeting of tho Minneapolis & St. Louis railroad there. General Manager J. T. Clink's palace coach was attached to Cojductor Bush's train this morning.

THE HKN.VKI'I.V I'UOJtOT. Hymeneal. At 7 o'clock last evening Miss Nettie l.ctllairo and Mr. W. C. Thompson, United Slates internal revenue collector for the Second Iowa district, were united in marriage by Rev. Macliin, pastor of St. Joseph's Catholic church of ltoek lsl Bnd. The ceremony was performed at the residence of the bride's mother, Mrs. Sarah M. IicClaire, on LcPaKislrcct be tween Ninth and Tenth, and was wit nessed by ngatbelinK of guesla composed exclusively of relatives and immediate triends of the bride and pronm. 1 1 nine diatelv after the ceremony Mr. and Mrs. Thompson departed on the Hock Island train on a brief bridal lour to wesicrn points. II r. Thompson's inarriaire is a surprise to his friends. The acquaintance which ripened into attachment was formed early last ,Iuly. Aside from being an adroit politician Mr. Thompson is a wn lleman of dixnillcil liearini; and excellent personal tiaits of character.

Murphy, of Daven port, has been numerously interviewed of ate upon tiie Hennepin canal, tiic pet project of this entire section of Ibr coun try. Iu conversation with a correspond dent at Washington the other day, lie said that no question would conic up at the coining session of congress of such importance to the public, good as the question of cheaper transportation over present rates. "I am of the opinion," he said, "that' congressional action on the improvement of all our water ways riv ers, harbors, and canals would afford the quickest and cheapest remedy, and then the people of the north and south and cast and west would get tuo benefit the cus tomer as well as the producer. We know that for the past ten or fifteen years the questiou of iuterstutii commerce has been agitated in and out of congress, nnd local islalion lias been invoked to act against the exorbitant charges of railways, but, I am sorry to say, they came out of the same hole they went in al; nothing has beeu accomplished. Now, when it is an admitted fact that water transportation is at least DO per cent cheaper than any olli - er method, would it not bo the part of good statesmanship to improve our natu ral waterways and construct artificial ones, like the Hennepin canal, which will pro duce so much good by such action? We know that the govemmeut in the past has appropriated large sums of iiiouey in the construction of canals. Take, for example, the Louisville and I'ortland canal, the Des Moines rapids canal, the construction of a canal around the cas cades of the Columbia river, the Oi-een Bay ami tho Mississippi canal, the Saint Mary's canal iu Michigan, the Si. ( lair falls canal, the Tatapseo river and Chesa peake bay canal, the Muscle shoals in the Tennesseo river canal, In the con struction of these canals tho govern meiit has expeuded (110,315,057. and who will say that it has not done good? 'I can demonstrate to the most skep tical that the construction of this canal is but opening up a water-way from the Mississippi river and its valley to the lakes and tho ocean in the interests of commerce In other words there is a bar right iu the middle of the channel. Kemovo that bar, and then the water communication from St. Louis on the south and 81. Paul on the north, lo New Vork city a distance of two thousand miles-will be uninterrupted, which will do more good for commerce than any other appropriation In the river and harbor hill." "The general prejudice" he ssid. "against tho canal has disappeared very much, and the local prejudice against the canal in 8t. Louis has also disappeared, for they are beginning to realize the fact that St. Louis is one of the western termini of this water-way. To my mind St. Louis has more interest in the con struction of this canal than any other lioint. inclodiiiL' Chicago, for Ihe bulk will be broken of the grain that is ship nn.l eastward and of the commerce and tho manufactured products that are ships ped westward, and therefore; it pleases me to say, the feeling in St. houis lor tne construction of this canal has improved very much in the last few months, nud if that improvement continues I believe that limn will renlizn the inioortance of its construction to the commerce of SI .mil nd will cheerfully indorse it. I have met while in Washington the pant few days a number of Bt. Louis people who talk more favorably of it. I am not only tho advocate of the construction tho Hennepin canal, but all other waler ways that will give relief to the coin merce of the east and the producing in terests of the west. Again, we have to .l.v millions of dollars rusti nir in the government treasury, anil tne greai ai tation is, what shall we do Willi il? 1 lie method I suggest will not only reduce transportation charges r.O per cent, but at the same lime il will furnish bread and meat, iu consideration for labor, to Hum sands of the hundreds of thousands who are today almost starving. In the city of Chicago today there are fony thmisani poor men, husbands and parents of chil dren, who do not know where they can find the bread and meat to lill their months which thev are ill ueed of. Now if we construct this Hennepin canal w. rivn fini.lovment to twenty or thirty thousand of Ihese poor piuplc, hirin thent at a cheap rate, especially furnish ing them w ith bread and meat iu consul eration of labor, and in this way wo pro duce two good results furnishing labor to the poor and cheap transportation to th people. We held a convention south last April, in New Orleans Uiu "111. Sth, and Olli of April -and the Hennepin canal got reneroiis indorsement. And the same can be said of the convuiilion held in St Paul on the 3d ami 4lh of September last. The name of Dewitt Clinton will neve he fort'otu-u bv the American people, for he was the author of the construction o tho Kile canal, and tho great beneUts th people have enjoyed by its construction would he more than quadrupled uy me construction of the Hennepin, which, -to larger extent, is of a similar kind and character. The amount askeu lor tins winter will lie f l.mKMMU, and we think that in veiw of the fact that the slates u Iowa and Illinois furnish one-third of Hi internal revenue and oue third of the exlerial exports they at least ought lo be ntilled to one-twcnlletli of Ihe appro prialion by the committee on water nil provcmenl. I think that Ihu hill tl winter will be about 30.t00,0:rtl. because we had no appropriation at the last session and it will certainly require that much lo continue tho works already on hand anil those proposed.

My dear sir: I have some friends up here who have heard so much talk about how your boat, the' Clyde, beat the steamer J. K. Graves, that. Ibey have become very anxious thai the two boats should nieel at some place where the friends could go, and that the friends of the two boats would make up a purse of any sum from UK) lo J.MKl a side, and let the two boals race for the purse, and the winner take the purse. My friends are now ready to put any sum m-iy you name not to exceed $51 M) against the like amount, and the two boats meet at Iteeds Land ing, and race from Heeds Landing to liedwing. and the winner take the purse. As to the judges, each side aeleel one and they two select one. making in all three judges, whose decision shall befinal; Ibey the judges, to keep the time. Should be pleased to hear from yon soon. Yours Truly. " Matt Ci.nn. Iloth the Clyde and .1. K. Graves are iron crafts, about 1 lie same build, ami and b. 'Hi were constructed at Dubuque. They are both line boats, and the Clyde lias long. enjoyed the reputation of being the fastest runner on the river, but she seems to have a dangerous rival in the new sleiuner, the ,1. K. Graves. This craft has passed all the boats it has caught mi the river, excepting the Clyde, the owner of which declares he distanced tiic I. K. Graves shortly after Ihat boat was launched. There however, seems to be some room for doubt, as the ubove letter would imply, and the disputed question can only be settled by a race such as Mr. Clark sugges's. The ,J. K. Graves is a swift and handsome lutiner, and the pros ct of a "blood" race between her and the Clyde will excite widespread interest COSTLY ONFL KiK AT10.V TlioO!d Copperhead Lsctureth oar Represen tative Andalusia, Get. 7 Km run Annus: Danforth s conceit has no limit iu reason.
