ENOS announces that he ha* established In a building purchased for the purpose a SANITARIUM for the BOTH MEDICAL and SURGICAL.

C., April 9 —An ex-ten i< <1 mnl forcible Algum, ut in furor of a go, rnntpnt ap]»ropnation for th* building of th • Hennepin canal vat made before the rn r end harbor committee of th** bourn by J* Try H. Murphy, the long tim* advocate of tho project. Nearly all of the Illinois congressmen and ninny other western confirm* men were prw-nt. Mr. Murphy reviewed the ri f* heretofore taken in the effort* to eatat Hah tills great project, and set forth the overwhelming indorsements of ti a outer* prise of stat. Minn, legislative bodle*, convention*, and others since 1845, wh**ti John C. Calhoun, “that strict construotlonist," prodded over a conv ntton at Memphis which adopted a resolution declaring that the firoject of connecting the Mississippi river with the lakes of the north by a canal, and thus with the Atlantic noo.n, was a measure worthy of the consideration of ooh grim The Agricultural Interest*. Mr. Murphy said: “Wa all know that the sri itrary rule that fixes prices is demand and *upply, and romeiniwr there is no protection. high or low tariff, that aids or assists the honest farm* r in hndiu^ a market or fixing the priers for his sUf|dus product* lienee the question is if you mitt*mal legislators are so anxious and willing t > protect the manufacturers, why ars you not equally willing to ahi and guard with serious care Hi# agricultural interests of this country? For you all know tbs farmer has been Ute greatest factor in tho commercial success and {iraaprrity of this nation, sad will continue to i« Ii ri ;ht and justle* is done bim. Yes, the great, -t factor, because they have produced per cent. of all our exports during tbs last sixty years. While ail O’ ber interests combined export only on.-fltth aa much as the farmer*, they each an I all of tic un h .it) reci I vet! five times as much car*, aid, and protect.on from the law and th* law -makers." Behind the Times. He submitted many figures to show that the United Blate* had done less to improve her waterways in Hi# Interest af commerce tam Enfin ii I, France, Humid, Or many, Hoi land, Hweden, or Austria. The impor-tanas of the Hennepin caam for defensive purposes in time of war was also eltur rn tidy set forth. He read a communication front ti V. Benet, brl miler general chief of ord nam ce of the government, In which that official sayst “There can ba no doubt that the all-water communication connecting the upper Mi*-sbaijipi river with Lake Michigan at or near Chtoago is as neosaaary for defensive purports on the lait* ae it will be for commercia] purpoees, and as valuable to th* Country at large as that artery of commerce, the Erie canal. Th* Hemx-ptn canal is th* all-in [K*rtaut link needed in tbs long chain of Inland navigation which will virtually make the country east of the Missis ip pi river an island, with tbs gulf, ocean, lakes ’and rivers rn* its boundaries. An easy and safe debouch into the u.per lake** through th<< Hensepia canal will, with the Erie * anal, solve th* problem of supplying that frontier with alt war an*) navy material of large weight and bulk to give us control of the lake* Indeed, th* obstruction or destruction of tho Brl** canal—the find step in case of beath>iie*-would renter the Hennepin an absolute nee wit/, Ire* fro a disturbance or attack.” Item tit. To Be Derived. Apeak tog of what the c anal would do for agriculture and commerce, Mr. Murphy ■md; “I make the statement, and challenge to vmttgatkMi, that if the government, thi ough fie representatives, will .lo its duty and construct this canal there will be a saving of st least 4 mite per bushel over preset)t railroad rate* now charged from th* Miosis Jppiriver to the lake* An i the ss viug ot 4 cent* per I us!.*! ou the surplus grain of Illinois, Iow a, Ka ii mr. Nebraska, Minnesota sn I Wisconsin will amount annually to |.‘0,W4.u7->. enough to buUd this canal I tires times, aud not including in this estimate other products of western toilers that would amount to millions more. ”    __ MAJ.
