THE QUEEN CITIZEN ON WHEELS.Vol. 2J [No. l.Devoted to the Belles Lettres and Impersonality.* ;On the Union Pacific R. R., September 29,1869.^ * iGREETING.The editor of the journal so fully feresaw the suceess that would be commanded by It from the first, that he wrote the following editorial day before yesterday. The initial number of the Queen Citizen on Wheels has gone to the pub lio and created a sensation that nothing but superlatives, in which we do not deal, can do justice to. The entire edition was exhausted at an early hour, and on ly with the greatest difficulty did the editor retain one copy to deposit iu the corner-stone of our new llve-story stone-front office, the erection of which was begun last evening at early oandle-light. We are determined to be as enterprising as this community is generous, In pursuance of which resolution we have changed form from folio to quarto, and adorned the first page with a new heading, In a postscript to a letter dispatched, yesterday, to a lady acquaintance in New York, we ordered two eight-cylinder Hoe presses, at a cost of $33,-500 each, and have commenoed excavation under our state-room to make room for the mammoth machines.After our paper had been read, yesterday, a mass meeting was held in Fifth avenue, in the Humboldt District of this rolling metropolis, a large and fashionable delegation coming in from the Platte City District and decorously occupying the lateral streets. Mr. Fallis related a touching anecdote in, the life of Napoleon the First, making speaking gesturos with his left hand, and in nis right flourishing a cork which he had neatly caught out on the fly at dinner, i thereby securing an immediate inning of Werk’s sparkling. Mr. Fallls gently glidedfrom the Little Corporal to the suggestive ob-ect between his right finger and thumb, and as* e paid a deserved tribute to Mr. Werk, his eye swam apparently in a mist of Golden Eagle. The famous wine-grower of Green Township made a witty reply, quoting General ’s disclosure of the enfeebling and corrupting quality of Longworth’s so-called wines, and demurring to the indifferent opinion expressed In these columns concerning California vintages. Mr. Hosea made some pithy remarks, and an allusion to certain mysterious infants, that brought Mr. Buchanan to his feet. The graceful and adroit observations of Mr. Buchanan elicited a tumultuous call for the editor of this paper, who with admirable poise and self-possession constructed a platform of two valises and a tea-box, mounted it, and made the following speech:“Ladies and gentlemen of the Cincinnati Excursion Party: It is hardly just to expect your scribe and historian to be also your orator. Few newspapermen oan talk well extemporaneously, and wo aro too- pioud to oommit speeohea to memory and practice them before the massive mirrors that line our sumptuous sanctums. We write so much that our habits of thought tend away from off-hand speakiug. The orator can not expunge or revise if suddenly called ont, and that is what journalists have the privilege of doing in addressing their daily audiences. But I will not shield myself behind this brief analysis of the reason why I shall probably breakdown. [Cheers.] As excursionists, ladies and gentlemen, you are a success. I have followed you with my pencil closely, because admiringly. I Applause.] It is to be regretted that Chicago did not send with you the deputation of polioemen that one of the journals there suggested. You would have made gentlemen of them, seen to it that their Dills were paid, protected them from the grizzlies in Woodward’s Garden, and from other zoological small deer, and returned them such wiser and better men, that they would probably insist on continuing their journey to the Buckeye State.“If Chicago thinks that the Cincinnati method of taking a drink is for each man to pay for his glass, you happen to know since visiting San Francisco that the Chicago method Is to order and swallow the fluid, and walk off, without observing the little formality that follows such transactions in our own rural community.“It gives me pleasure to be able to thank my indefatigable allies of the fair sex, for their apt notes and highly intelligent suggestions. Now that we have woman as a doctor, a printer and a telegraph operator, why may she not aspire to— nay, be imperatively oalied on—to assume the managing editorship of the great dailies. Yours, ladies and gentlemen, is the model excursion of my experionco, which happens not to be a narrow one relating to trips like this. You have been a social unit for thirty days. That is something new. You know beauty of nature when you see it, and comprehend fun when it is abroad. This is a rare gift. I thank you profoundly for furnishing a theme so oongeniai^for letter writing as your delightful journey aero the continent, and for your cordial reflection esteem for a great and rising institution—after schools and commeroe, the handmaid of progress—the press of this Republlo.” [Great and oontinued cheering, after patiently waiting for whioh to subside, Mr. Hosea prooeeded to deoant the rosy.]
