To Obdale Al govt 19. Al. called a Mon. Sorf of the a a her we perceive Are agitating a far matter of a called session of the legislature up ostensible object assigned is the re Al of a new code. There would seem to be a predetermination on the part of certain persons to a code unpopular whether it have Merit w Bot i is but forty Days since it went into a get and this More in form than in fact none 0f then county officers elected under it having been Qualia. Be we 4re told that the code is an abomination -0 a borne Liis Loo. Before it has been testes a solitary partic car common fairness would Dii the slut the new syn Tom Sli Ould have a fair trial befo., being condemned Ami if the people Aie Wise they w Ujj insist upon this course. This proposition for a called session May As alleged be based us on a pretended necessity to get rial of the code a hut we cannot entirely divest ourself of the suspicion that a desire to a a fret their Brief hour upon the stage of up hic affairs prompts the Patriot inn of Many individuals just about these Days. If our biennial Legislatures Are too slow going for the ambitious notions of our politicians Iet to Ken come out frankly and at once for a change of the Constitution authorizing these hard working and Public spirited Gentry to meet annually at the capital and in the fullness of their thirty for a a glory Saddle the people with the Winters expense. We do not pretend to de fend the code As free from defects in fact we do not pretend to know a great a Lea about it but care willing to take it Aud try it As the joint labor of the legislature and the commissioners approved by the governor and ail intended we doubt not for the Best Good of the people. Besides whatever May be its defects Are facts which we can Best ascertain after actual experience. At Leas we shall have a better knowledge resulting from its practical operation than we can possibly have from the Mere guess work of persons unduly anxious to a a Liine a As prophets or particularly ambitious to continue during the whole term of their election the loafing of the Capitol. We have an abiding Confidence that the sound discretion of gov. Hempstead will Cut Short this absurd proposition by a silent go by. We have had enough of extra Felt Sions and enough of extra taxes a the consequences and unless a Stop be put to this growing disposition to find excuses for called sessions we might As Well vote the provision of the Constitution a Humbug and repeal it unconditionally. We have had but one a inter of quiet since our slate government went into operation notwithstanding the Constitution provides that the legislature shall meet biennially. Gov. Hempstead has an excellent of prior Timity to enforce the Law As it is and to establish a precede it demanded alike by his own Fame and the Public go gtd and it is to be hoped As it is believed that be will in a manner worthy of ins High position. The a Hole Allair is a trick of political starve Lings and it is much to be regretted that any portion of the Public press should lend itself to such unprincipled schemers. . Of the Dagler Lan .

Kimball whose recent disappearance from Iowa City while Labouring under mental derangement has already been noticed in our Paer was recently found in Ralston Creek Hack of that place. If a Friend of ours out West who was recently Defeated for an office that he was entirely come a event to fill Ami had some right to exact that he would get consoles himself with the reflection that a the principle is Correct if he is it is Seldom that Defeated candidates can bring themselves to think w Ith the gentleman above alluded to. The Money must have been obvious to the whole country that the system of Banks and Crew it has been rapidly expanding for some time. And it has been generally supposed that this expansion was justified and sup sorted by the influx of California Gold. It appears now however that More than every Dollar of Gold we have received from California has been shipped abroad for foreign goods. We take the following Troin the new York Herald shipments of specie from the porn of s. V. 185. January j1.jw.w0 May ,w5, Kio Jav Druary 1.1hi7.ou0 june 6,462,090 Marrh 2. 46.ihk� july 6001,000 jail 3,42,000 Framl $20,,000 and the same paper informs us that the total receipts of California Gold at the mint up b August 1st, but slightly exceeds Twenty three millions of dollars. The consequence is that a Good do i of alarm is visible in the new y Ork Stock Market. Iowa Central Railroad we give the knowing ones of do Huque All due Praise Loi their sagacity in finally turning the Tail of their Road toward Council bin fit and for their address in compelling Keokuk to look in the same direction. Ami w e would also As cheerfully Accord to Keokuk a High degree of credit for enlightened judgment in succumbing to the proposition of Dubuque though it must be confessed the Lias been rather sensible in adoption than Graceful in execution. The Only material difference Between the two Points at present is that each claims for itself the paternity of the new route. We remember that several months ago we had the Honor to submit to the Public of the i is Moines Valley the propriety of petitioning Congress for a donation of land for the construction of a Railroad from this Axce to fort Des Moines by the Way of Fairfield Ottumwa. Okaloosa ac., and that petitions w Ere but in circulation numerous by signed and forwarder to Washington. Whether this proposition was in adv me of the Keokuk and Dubuque projects we shall cot pretend to say As it is a matter of Small consequences we Only know that at that time we heard of nothing in the Railroad line except the Keokuk and Dubuque Road Ria Iowa City. Our own proposition is one which will continue to be insisted upon and we doubt not it is such an one As will commend Itsell to the favourable action of Congress. The Keokuk dispatch is not inclined to treat us with Vecial Courtesy in this matter. In announcing the abandonment of the old route we took occasion to recommend As feasible and praiseworthy the present project for extern Irig Road is into the Interior and also suggested in the Blandes manner we could command that the scheme might be so managed As that at no Distant Day Burlington and Keokuk might meet at Fairfield and take another a a ride by the dispatch parses Over in silence the policy thus intimated and the politeness thus intended and after treating w Ith a degree of unkindness our announcement of a fact which it does not deny the abandonment of the Obi Keokuk Ami Dubuque route gives us u a kind of a sort of an invitation to meet them at fair held. A correspondent in a succeeding number of the dispatch takes up the subject it about the same spirit Ami concludes in a similar manner. We have Only this to say in reply we believe in railroads leading from proper Points on the River into the Interior and that fort Des Moines is the Best a hint for their Termini. We believe that Burlington Ami Keokuk could meet to Mutual advantage at Fairfield that Muscatine and Davenport fould do the same with the same beneficial results at some Point West of them and that Dubuque in View of her Eastern connections is warranted and will find her Reward in the proposed Enterprise. We believe that by a United Effort tie lands can tie procured. A and we Are in favor of a Union for the Sake of Mutual Success. At the same tune we Are entirely satisfied to depend upon the position of this place its Trade and its daily increasing in dior Tance to command All the facilities requisite to the completion of All its purpose. There is however room enough for All an there is no substantial reason in existence that we arc aware of for any fears on the part of one mint that another will detract from its just renown or retard in any degree its Onward and it cannot he that any one is at heart so sadly d War led in feeling As to desire Success alone to his own locality. A falling into the of gnaw Isa Spectator which a Lew weeks since appeared Salav Orabie to the binding of the i Voita and Roqu Avra Railroad after the manner proposed by the directors is no longer opposed to the Progress of the work but Falls into tie ranks very manfully and urges upon the citizens of Henderson county the Imok Ortance of taking Stock in the Road at once. That is just what we like to see Harmony and Unity of action. We have said that it will take the United energies of All to Complete the work and they working As one Man. It is very True that a the building of this Road is no longer a Mere probability it to a fixed fact a and it be hooves All who expect to be participators in carrying Forward this great work or recipients of the Many benefits and advantages it will bestow upon those living in the Vicinity of its track to lie up and a doing and a a air a in its the tune is not Distant when those who stand with folded arms Ami look calmly on w ill be amazed at the a noise and confusion which the non horse will create traversing the Prairies from River to River conveying to the Atlantic cities our products. And bringing in return the goods Ami Ware of Eastern Ami foreign manufactories. To some who appear not to appreciate the advancement of the present age in the arts Ami sciences and who Are acquainted with the spirit of improvement now abroad the fact of a Road being built in a few months or at most years May apr year visionary but to those who have observed practically the March of improvement of the Day i Whitfi w e live the appearance of the Iron horse passing our streets and pushing his Way Westward will lie no great wonder. They have put their hand to the work they have said it must go through and go tii Koch it will whether those who stand As lookers on fall into the ranks or remain Idle a a Ecta tors.

Pipit july i it it ,3i e Tocqueville a anxiously looked for report upon the revision of the Constitution was read in the Assembly Day before yesterday and Given to the Public yesterday. It is the Able conciliatory Pati Itic and statesmanlike d a Cement w hich you would expect from the distinguished author of Jjck Cracy in Jim Erica. He sketches with a master hand the numerous perils which Environ France. Read his report which is drawn up in the Calm Earnest but passionless language of deep and sad conviction and you will Rue from the perusal particularly if Jou have attended sufficiently to the March of events Here to know As 1 do that his narrative is Only too True with the belief forced upon you that France is approaching and under circumstances that almost preclude Hope one of the most critical passages of her National existence. Revision admits is full of danger but he contends that it is less dangerous than tie state quo. He apprehends As one of the chief dangers of refusal to revise regularly an unconstitutional candidacy and nomination of m. Bona Parte not from any general enthusiasm for him ?, but f rom the pressure of the administration he being in Power and holding m his i Grap the thousand strings of executive influence from the ignorance of the masses Unen lightened and unused to the exercise of the j rights of citizens of any other name of any other Man than him with w Hom they have been As it were in contract for the la let three years. Such an election he argues would be the total overthrow of the Constitution the loss of Liberty and an invitation to despotism. He concludes in favor of revision As the least of the dangers praying tie Assembly in the name of the committee to adopt the follow ing Resolution a taking into consideration article 111 of the Constitution the Assembly decides that the Constitution shall be totally the debate in the Assembly will commence next monday. The following concluding remarks recommending whether the Resolution pass or not that the Assembly respect the Constitution and cause it to be strictly respected by All and upon All occasions comprise tie most interesting and important portions of the report a one Point however for which the committee has been unanimous is this if in spite of All the efforts sincerely made to come to an understanding by making Mutual sacrifices compatible with the sincerity of opinions and their dignity tie present attempt should Tail if there should not be found in the Assembly the number of votes required for the Legal revision to take Dace h in a word the Constitution continues to exist As it is it ought to be invariably and universally obeyed. On this Point the committee divided on so Many others found itself unanimous and we Are convinced that the same unanimity will be evinced by the Assembly. Every one ought to comprehend Fiat a Legal at tempt made to Reform a Constitution gives to this tatter should it Tail a new consecration As Long As it could be legally thought that the Constitution was to be revised any one could have thought of changing it or even preparing to do what it did not As yet permit. But irom the moment that such a Hope is no longer admissible there Only regains to submit to i it press Fiji tons and to obey them. For the Constitution As we have already said is the Only legality the Only political right which we recognise at present in France and out of its Pale there is nothing quot hut adventurous acts or revolutions. The firm will of the National Assembly ought consequently to Fie not Only itself to re a so meet the Constitution but to watch carefully that All other do so likewise. It is in order to better express this idea Ami to give you an occasion to associate in it that your committee proposes to us to introduce into the in a ii Tion which it submits of you the text of article 111 of the Constitution in order to cause it to be understood that it is Only in virtue of the Constitution and in View of the conditions which it has itself Laid Down that we conceive that it ought to lie revised. We reckon on seeing the admit ratio and indeed every one conform to to this idea and on their bearing in mind that every attempt having for its object to urge the Leople towards unconstitutional candidate ships Roin the moment that tie Constitution cannot a legally revised would not Only be improper a regular but culpable.

About 11 of clock last night the firemen of this City assembled at the City Hall the lower part of which is occupied by Protection company no. 1, for the pure of As we learn of saving the building from confiscation.

The Blom gushed from his Mouth and nose in streams and before those standing near could get him into the House he had breathed his last. Or. Walker was originally from Cincinnati we believe Ami had resided in this City for the last eight or ten years with the intermission of a year which he Swient in California.

At Princeton College where i spent a Lew month 1787 the prize of elocution was borne away by mothers and ranters.

I remember Stone verses from Pope and the first Annon Mons letter from Newberg made up the sum and substance of my a outings and 1 yet can relate much of the first epistle to lord Chatham of the former and a great Deal of the latter. 1 was then As conscious of my superiority Over my competitors in delivery and elocution As 1 am now.

Culi rating it Massachusetts agriculturalists says Thev cultivate the Block Berry in the Vicinity of Foston. An old pasture is broken up.

There Are also different varieties of the american fruit even in it wild state from Vav Owji a selection might be made. A caravan or seven Hundred Ottaw Ottamie indians with All their paraphernalia of a Kines wagons dogs and other fantastic fixing. Are crossing the River at Point two mile above Dubuque today. They Are the a a trolling bands who Bave left their new 1 Homes on the Missouri and have been scattered Over Wisconsin Illinois Indiana and Michigan for the list two year and Are now being Gate up by government contract and taken to the far West. Or. Coquillard of South Bend Indiana is the contractor. A i we crossed last evening but the who a hand cannot be got Over before tomorrow noon. They Are Enca Ping upon this Side As they Cross and will he Leady to move by monday morning. There Are about sixty waggons an1 As Many Drivers employed i the Chr Ald. Mormon outrage. The St. Loui intelligencer publishes a letter from an officer of the army who of Forth in Plain terms the proceedings of the mormons at Salt Lake. He represent that they have sworn eternal hostility to the government of the United states and that their governor Brigham Young Unble Shingle proclaims the most treasonable sentiment. The moral of the saints Are evidently no better than they should be the spiritual wife system still prevails the head of the Church setting the example and the balance follow ing to the extent of their ability besides which there is said to be no special decency observed in any of the relations of life. Stealing is the order of the Day among them extortion amounting to robbery is the portion meted out to All who Are so unfortunate As to be compelled to Winter among them and punishments and abuse of every description Are heaped upon All who presume to question the doings of a a the so Long As a goodly number of emigrants were present and by their Money contributed to the Prosperity of the settlement the Heads of the Church and others feigned a Friendly bearing and managed to smother the vindictiveness of their feelings towards our government and our citizens Blit no sooner Hall a Large majority of them departed than they threw off All disguise and commenced the work of persecution upon the remainder. According to the w Riter whom we feel bound to believe in Offerl eng persons have been robbed of to Beer property and subjected to the severest Atul most degrading punishments and this too without even the form of trial and upon the Bare command of governor Young. These outrages ought not to be permitted to go unnoticed. As the intelligence comes from an official As Well As undoubted source we do not see How the president can do otherwise than take notice of these proceedings. The a outrages it is True were perpetrated pre Vious to the erection of the Utah territory but the conduct of Brigham y Oung has certainly been such As to reflect disgrace upon our government and the president owes it to himself and the people to hurl the scoundrel from the kit sit Ion to a hich he has recently in in appointed and which it is not in his nature to do otherwise than disgrace in the most shameful manner. In addition to the above we also observe by a j late letter from Oregon published in the Ottumwa courier that a party of Iowa emigrants who wintered at Salt Lake were a a badly treated by the private letters received at this place at various times for several months past have brought intelligence to the same effect a that stated by the writer in the St. Louis intelligencer but it balt not been deemed expedient to publish them for the reason that they would be liable to the suspicion of exaggeration private malice �?and for our own part we have had a delicacy about publishing anything on the subject on account of the part which mormon main has been made to a Day in the politics of the state. But we think the time has come when the press of All parties or at least the Independent press should expose the infamy of this unprincipled sect and denounce As they deserve the High Haud cd a outrage of its villainous leaders prophets and cutthroats. Our citizens have been plundered insulted beaten like brutes subjected to degrading punishment and their lives put in jeopardy All at the bidding of governor Brigham Young and our government denounced and its authority set at Defiance by a Man who now holds one of the j highest and most honorable positions which the president can bestow. No White Man it a a True who has any respect for himself would Ftp i re titular by latter cd with tie a Uve Norship of Utah under existing circumstances but the scandalous outrages perpetrated upon innocent and Uno fending citizens by Brigham Young and his Lawless Banditt certainly Call for immediate and efficient action on the part of the president. Young should be removed even if the Dei in has to he appointed in his place. We sub join a statement published in the Oregon Spectator of june 12, by a Rev. Or.

The following letter from the a Secretary of state was addressed to a gentleman of North Carolina who desired his opinion on the question of the right of a state to secede from the Union. At gig St 1,18fl. Dear sir i have received your letter of the 26th july. The Constitution of the United states recognizes no right of secession As existing in the people of any one state or any number of states. It is not a limited coffer duration but a government Ami it proceeds upon the idea that it is to be perpetual like other forms of government subject Only to be dissolved by revolution. I confess i can form no idea of secession but As the result of a revolutionary movement. How is it possible for instance that South Carolina should secede and establish a government foreign to that of the United states thus dividing Georgia which does not secede from the rest of the Union ? dry end upon it my dear sir that the secession of any one state would be but the first step in a process which must inevitably break up the entire Union into More or fewer parts. What i said at Capron Springs a an argument addressed to the North and intended to convince the North that if by its superiority of numbers it should defeat the operation of a Plain undoubted am undeniable injunction of the Constitution intended for the est Ciai Protection of the South such a proceeding must necessarily end in the breaking up of the government that is to say in a revolution. 1 aug dear sir with respect your obit serve to.

Indeed though Large portions of the present Rome Are very far from ruinous and some of them quite modern and fresh looking yet the general architecture of the City is decidedly inferior to that of Genoa and 1 shoud say even to that of leghorn. In making this comparison i of course leave out of the account St. Peters and the churches of both cities and refer mainly to private architecture in which Rome is not transcendent certainly not in Italy.
