It is a Large and handsome a footed Sheet and is edited with an ability m St soon place it among the leading f>a-i5� Oftle. A tits democratic in Politica. Rapids is one of the most flourishing of the Interior Aie is rapidly increasing and business. And the Success of i Ieru present manager visit can 7 be doubts. We shall take a wire in plact of our Exchange list. Put Hanks to Danube Lor late Galena Jya who does not feel proud that lie is an american citizen upon the election Day to say nothing of the glorious fourth of july the hallowed Twenty second of february and other similar anniversaries to Day we shall a stand upon one common level. The most Humble citizen of the state shall exercise the same privilege of de positing his vote in the a a ballot Box a that is exercised by the most exalted. The Constitution under which it is our High privilege to live throws its protecting wings around the persons of the poor As Well As the Rich and secures impartial Justice to All while in european coun tries where the elec Lve franchise is enjoyed at All is restricted to the few by being based upon a property qualification and the a Hay the great masses of society Are ignorant of the and while our people should Ever cherish this As the very Corner Stone of the Temple of free Dom and the grand bulwark of their liberties they should at the same time guard against those bitter feelings arid malignant animosities too often engendered by party spirit. We should never lose sight of the Precept left upon record upon this subject by the father of our country. And it must be a source of High gratification to every True american whether native or adopted to know that for three quarters of a Century they and their fathers have been enjoying the inestimable privilege which we this Day enjoy and that nothing scarcely Ever occurs to mar the peace and Harmony of the occasion notwithstanding the feelings Are excited and the passions often Timas inflamed. The system is founded in ustice and reason and our people act rationally in carrying it out. Although the whole political atmosphere May be surcharged for Days and weeks previous to the Day of election with the a lec Trinity of party and a Good Deal of Thunder is often expended yet there is Seldom any body Hurt by the lightning and the same atmosphere Only becomes purer from the agitation. Although whig and Democrat May be arrayed against each other in the most determined hostility until the polls Are closed and the votes counted and the Triumph of the one or the other announced they immediately fall Back upon the old platform of Harmony and Good feeling the victorious exultant and the Defeated cheered by the Hope of u better Luck next there is a moral Force in the system of Universal suffrage that can no where else be seen. Every Man in exercising the privilege feels that he is a Man and each one feels that the other is his equal and is disposed to treat him accordingly. With this influence operating upon the judgment and controlling the conduct of men there is no need of invoking the Aid of police or appealing to columns of bristling bayonets to secure peace and preserve order at the ballot Box. And now standing As we do editorially upon High Vantage ground Between the to o great parties we Hope that nothing May occur to mar the Beauty of the scene of w witnessing the free and Independent voters of our Young and flourishing state marching no Wilh the Resolute tread of men to the a a oils conscious of their sovereignty and at the same time of the responsibility that rests upon them. A a Vox Populis Vox Dei a is an old Maxim and though not literally True yet there is a vast amount of meaning embodied in the sentiment. And As intelligence spreads abroad through the world and Mankind understand their inherent rights the notions of monarchical supremacy w ill fade away and the will assert their privileges even though it be with them As it was with our fathers at the Price of revolution and blood. And now in conclusion we would say to those of the candidates to Day who May happen to be successful we Hope they will Wear their honors meekly and to the unsuccessful that there Are ample stores of happiness Laid up in the retirement of private life. To the polls fellow citizens once More your country Calls and every Man must do his duty a this Day is big with the Fate of divers candidates if not pregnant with other items.

Every Man then to his Post and let every Point be guarded As a regular built Thermopyla immortal sons of degenerate sires Hump yourself it the race to Day at least w ill be to the Swift and the Battle decidedly in favor of the conquering party. Arouse then with the Early Dawn and spurning the sparkling Dew drops from your Leet strike a dog Trot and make a Bee line for the Point of attack a Long pull a Strong pull and a Puli All together will As heretofore save our beloved land from rapine murder and sudden dissolution a but dear citizens you tear your thirst condition of some of the streets and alleys of this City is a Public decency if not safety demands that immediate Steps should be taken to remedy the evil. The attention of the City authorities is respectfully called to the subject it is perfect nonsense to talk of the civilization of the nineteenth Century in the face of such facts As exist amongst us. _ Ftfe graphical mistake corrected.

A similar movement was to take place at three other Large cities As soon As they would hear that the blow had been struck at puerto cannot now from Prudential motives mention these places but we have not the slightest doubt that they Are now in arms.

We have lately come in Possession of a copy of the Nevada California journal containing a full descriptive account of the of rations of what is called the i Jaichon and Cleaveland Tunnel company. This company consists of seventeen gentlemen Viz col. Losing Wheeler. Hiram Loomis Charles Miller Philip Morhiser a. W. Cox Henry Repen. Janies Miller m. S. Cleaveland m. Haren w. J. Butler. Do Ems Daugherty t. Cox f. W. Lawson John Wilson John Statler John Kelly and or. Butch All of whom Are from Iowa with the exception of the last four who Are from Ohio. The operations of the company commenced in december last Ard at the time the article in the journal was written may22d they had run a horizontal Drift seven Hundred feet into the Side of a Hill and were expected to go two Hundred feet farther which would take them to the extent of their claim. At the end of 240 feet a vein of Gold was struck which began to Pav Well. The whole distance has been through Granite trap Rock and Limestone w Ith occasional strata of soap Stone and pipe Clay. The substance containing the Gold is a mixture of Quartz and gravel in pebbly particles cemented together perfectly solid. The Gold strata varies in thickness from six inches to four feet and since it has been struck has yielded an average of to o Hundred dollars per Day. T the Tunnel is five feet High by 28 inches wide heavy timbered and sided up has a track Lor cars with a Drain beneath which furnishes water sufficient for washing the gravel. The article in the journal concludes with the following credit to our Friend and former fellow citizen thus the works have been constructed under the supervision of or. Charles Miller of Dubuque Iowa whose experience in Lead mining has enabled him to carry through the Job so As to meet the most sanguine expectations of the company. The Ocean Miu finally become land shape of Bottoms the Secretary of the Navy has directed the commander of Public cruisers to get sea footings whenever it is Calm wherever May be. Capt. Barron of the John Adams has Laken a line of deep sea soundings across the Atlantic. His report is a step to a bards arriving at the great Atlantic Basin Between the capes of Virginia and the Island of Madeira showing it to be at least five Miles and a half deep. A line of deep sea soundings has also been run across the Gulf of Mexico from Tai Pico to the Straits of Florida by capt. Pratt of tie Albany. The Basin was found to be about a mile deep and the Gulf Stream in the Florida pass about 3000 feet. W. D. Porter in a communication to the National intelligencer expresses an opinion that the Ocean is slowly hut certainly diminishing that its Waters Are becoming solids. The process of Island making is among the most wonderful and simple of nature. Be first perceive an innumerable an almost imperceptible number of minute insects forming a a Olid Nias which in tune reaches the surface of the Ocean. This Coral Rock reef now becomes the Home of multitudes of Shel fish that die and Deposit their shells and fill up the reef compactly even with the water kelp attaches itself to the rocks and the action of the sea during gales tears much of it off and do posits it among the crevices w Here it decays. The Saragossa Plant finds its Way by the innumerable currents of the Ocean to these islands and is Thrombi do Frethem in vast quantities forming a temp Omry Hie sea Bird seeks the place for Foo ltd As the sea weeds contain Many myriads of Little Marine insects. The Birds enrich the deposits apply there end now comes the everlasting Flat Grove seizing hold with its tendrils of the sol lip Points of Coral and firmly attaching itself to them. Here then is an a a land the whole of which Jias been formed from the solid contents of to Flocean which had been held in solution fat a the Bigin Ning of creation nothing of which can be returned to it. As the w Hole substance has been rendered indissoluble by w Ater by the Peculiar chemical process which must in time enclose the carib can sea and Gulf of Mexico making them lakes abstracting from them nearly All their Salt soda Lime and 1� having fresh water lakes similar to those of Erie Ontario tcc., which at some former period May have been Salt. Aim by Thia process the Pacific Ocean will be narrowed into a Mere Strait or not wider than a few Days from continent to continent. A it Rwjr of Emigrant an the Plain by the Indian. The Frontier guardian published at Kanes Lille. Iowa had the following article in its Issue of the i 1 Ali inst. A from the is rumoured that 16 or 17 wagons of Oregon emigrants have returned from Beaver Creek having lost 55 he j of cattle leaving them barely enough to get to the River. We could not learn Whethe be Pawnee ran them off or they stampeded Bill understand that three or four Hundred of these indians were at their Camp begging the Day before. There have been of Many conflicting statements in regard to the matter we shall await the arrival of the company before we give any authentic information. We have heard nothing from the emigration that left this place since they have crowed the River. The St. Louis Union has received full information of the above intelligence from the sufferers Theiu Elve. It appears that the indians upon the route to the number of some 400 or u0o, followed and visited at several times the Little caravan of 16 wagons laying heavy contributions of provisions and Stock Barr Assing the March and making threats against All White men. At Beaver Creek about one Hundred Miles from the Mississippi they caused stampedes among the cattle and caused such fear and dishearten ment that the emigrants gave up the trip and returned to Kanesville. To la end a y Horning a court a 101. A As yesterday was election Day and we had a Large amount of out door amusements to attend to we were obliged to let this mornings Issue edit itself. . West of is. Louis who brings with him a High reputation As a Suc Ces Ful artist has established himself at Louns Berry a rooms where he is prepared to execute likenesses upon a new plan and of peculiarly elegant finish. We Hope to see him liberally patronize. So couple of enterprising persons from some place quot Down East a endeavoured to make themselves useful yesterday by celebrating in Long speeches the wonderful advantages of a knife sharpening machine which they carry with them for general distribution among the people provided the people pay therefor. According to their Oes eruption of the article the a very thought of its application would give a keen Edge to the most woe begone looking instrument. To our astonishment however the populace appeared backward about going Forward and the Trade Van decidedly Dull. This quot stumping it quot through the country with a View to the vending of Odd Nick packs is becoming quite in Vogue. The razor strop Man was the grand original of the new ideas and the was the Pioneer in the new line among us. Hie gentlemen who held foil yesterday evinced much Zeal and made some noise but their efforts were not regarded As quite equal to those of or. Clay and others during the Compromise discussion. The or i pm expelled from Swilor Iliad. However much we May As Republican regret the Swiss government overawed by the menacing attitude of Austria and her Wlliet should have Lent it Elf tothe iniquitous Perselu to Tion now carried on in Europe against republicans nevertheless we As a Neutral nation have no right to interfere. But when our own government is represented As being a Participator in these unworthy action then we Are in duty hound most energetically to remonstrate. After the triumphs of Imperial and Royal diplomacy Over the Swiss confederation in the question of the political emigration the unfortunate patriots were expelled from the several cantors Geneva excepted and most of them desirous of remaining As near As possible to the scene of action. Prefer re a seeking an Asylum in England to taking the Long voyage across the Atlantic. But the British government having a great repugnance to receive such a visit from such guests came to an understanding with the absolute Powers by which their victims Are shipped to America and a the Odin to of these arbitrary proceedings and of the destitute condition of the Republican refugees is made to fall upon our shoulders. The Swiss authorities who order the expulsion of refugees inform them that a a by an arrangement with the United states government and that of France they Are to be conducted to Havre and ship ted to America w Here on Landing they will receive Twenty five francs about eight or nine dollars and provided for by the United states authorities Lor eighteen Days and during that period employment and Means of subsistence will be found for each with these flattering promises the victims Are conducted no Lens Volens to the French Frontier at Basle where the gendarmes Are ready to receive them. The same assurances Are reiterated by the French sailors who do not leave them until they Are placed on Board of an american packet. On reaching this country their despair can be better imagine d than described when they find themselves without a cent and friendless in a strange land unable to speak the language and consequently in the almost impossibility of earning a livelihood. Some indeed there Are who being Able to speak German or having a recommendation of some citizen May be Able to procure subsistence but at Are not so fortunate. The italian refugee suffer More than those of any other nation since the number of their countrymen established Here is extremely limited and the privations which these poor Fellows endure Are oppressive. A our government can Nave no official proof of the lying assurances Given these unfortunates by the Swiss and French officials we do not know that it can take any action in the matter but the Case is one in which the press ought to make itself Fork Tribune. A child to die on the Gallor. George Long a Little boy Only eight years old was tried last week in Baltimore for the murder of another child. The jury rendered a verdict of guilty of murder in the first degree a com pan ing their verdict with an unanimous recommendation to the governor to commute the prior Oner s punishment to imprisonment in the Penitentiary for life. They stood during the whole time they were out eleven for murder in the first degree and one for murder in the second degree. The Young criminal during the trial amused himself by catching flies. Hie Baltimore american says the verdict will meet with the Genera approbation of the Community As the Only one w hich could be rendered in this singular and most unparalleled Case the first we believe which has Eer occurred in Maryland of a child of his age being the subject of capital conviction. The boy prisoner heard the verdict rendered against him without the least perceptible emotion though no doubt he fully understood its purport. The Telegraph Leport of saturday evening states that the governor has commuted the sentence to imprisonment in the state prison Lor life. Etiquette and cheap system of prepaying postage i being very generally adopted by the merchants. Very Many general letters Howei or Are still sent through the Post office unpaid. There is a Point of etiquette in connection with this subject which we Are sure will be observed by every gentleman who once directs his attention to the subject. Under the old Post office dispensation the Rule was that letters Between friends except from a gentleman to a lady need not be prepaid. If that custom Ever had any claims to approval they were entirely swept away by the operation of the new postage Law. A letter which is not prepaid is charged two cents More than when prepaid. Is it polite kind or gentlemanly to subject a Friend to a tax of 66 per cent., which benefits neither party to a correspondence ? the polite world should remember that the times change and that etiquette must keep Pace with the times if it would not lose its claims to gentlemanly consideration. Troat with the Lewer Baba. The treaty we notice yesterday a having been concluded was with the Wiseton and wan Peton or upper Barulis of Sioux and the country ceded lies along the Southwest of the St. Peters. The commission Are As we stated before at men Dot and on monday last were to meet there with the lower bands who inhabit both sides of the St. Peters near its Junction with the mists Spini and Are put Down on the latest map As the Dacotah Sand Warp Tunkey. Their lamps Are to be obtained which will add As much More to our territory. The commission we learn from Good authority will be through with their labors in a week or tend Asand will then proceed fit.

So Ich ravishing Forth such graces of manner and poetry of expression their Raven tresses Are usually of remarkable length and elaborately brai a led with consummate taste Ami care while their dark ail Lustrous eyes Radiant with deep thought and tender feeling Are Ever beaming in tranquil Beauty like the silent ohs of heaven upon some Summers eve. These windows a of the soul you glean from them the secret revelation of the heart with their Tel tale glances they unfold of you More than the most a Lorient words could express. Ii love dwell within a heir bosoms it scintilla Tes its electric Light from their eyes it quivers upon the Rny lip and Maffes with blushing Joy the velvet Cheek concealment is impossible you read the tale in every sidelong glance you behold it in every sunny smile dancing at a Madrid Casino. The first glimpse of the Ball room was like a fairy scene. It was built in imitation of an Oriental Palace tastefully fainted and illuminated with glittering chandelier in a he most Brilliant manner. The bail was quite thronged w Ith persons of both sexes a Large proportion of whom were engaged i dancing the polka Mazurka to the inspiring music of a full and splendid band. So exciting was the spectacle that it was with the greatest difficulty we restrained ourselves for a few orients from Rushing into the midst of the throng Vod we broke from All restraint.

You can scarcely have any Conception of the extent of vice Winch prevails in Madrid nor of the lightness and Impi Ferenee with which it is regarded by the Community. She who would be called by an evil name to any other country is Only regarded As a Gay and live y girl in Spain so Low is the general Standard of women. Absolute penury Ami the want of respectable employment have tender i to produce this deplorable result which must necessarily ensue wherever the poverty and mismanagement of a government and the consequent inactivity of Industry and Commerce does nut create sufficient occupation for the poorer classes to keep them above starvation without having recourse to vice. Ball at the Palace of Christina. The spectacle was the most splendid that it was Ever my Good a Fortune to behold. The number of gun Treinen and ladies in attendance could not have been less than six Hundred a. The Entrance Hall was perfectly unique and Beautiful. It was quadrangular and surrounded in the Middle with a Small Glass dome from the Centre of which was suspended an ornamental lamp. This Supalo or dome was supported by Marble columns while in the midst of the space thus enclosed a miniature form Fain was throwing into the air its playful Waters from amid the foliage of a Little Grove of Orange and Lemon Trees tastefully arranged around it.

Where we immediately paid our respects to the Queen Christina who bowed g aet full it Token of a know a a a garment. Though a woman of Large size yet every motion she made was marked by a refined ease of manner and Savity of Mien which at once pre poses de us in her favor. She is a woman of powerful mind and appears perfectly aware of the Superior nature of her endowments. The Queen was likewise present Arnulfo my Surprise was decided the plainest dressed lady in the room Here press was White variegated with artificial leaves while about her head was a Chaplet of simple Flowers. The Only ornament a tie wore w As a Large Diamond Cross suspended from her neck. The entire simplicity of her appearance affo Nied a striking contrast to the go mgr Ous display of causes and laces and jews is about her. Had i not known w hich of the ladies present was actually the Queen. I should have been at a loss to decide and the real surer eign would probably have been the last on i should have selected.

Hie ladies generally exhibited an extraordinary degree of symmetry and Beauty they were exquisitely Dre ltd eel. And their hair in Many instances was most elaborately braided and completely studded with diamonds and other precious stones.
