A sturday of Ornis dec. 6. Of the a a i Gnu Buque daily Herald a came to a for 7 us yesterday in a new and enlarged dimensions a Tell Poctor and the a Hoff. True in Beautiful print. We congratulate our a distinguished disciple of Galen and a very Friend Holt upon the Success that crowns his school of efforts and Are satisfied that whatever he takes Worth member of the allopathic a Sam. Gave a some time since the following rent of a personal adventure ghost is free Yrjo on Hora it rom a a a tiny of his patients at the Bouse of old father o it is not necessary that should give the a local habitation a a nor the doctor a bad it it but Endeavor to give it As As can in the language of the physician himself and when consider that there is is class of pm a plot a whom it is so Likely that the ghosts of the departed would appear As to physicians shall not be surprised tha each a articular hair did stand on end upon the head of the conscientious doctor a like quills of the fretful Porcupine a As the apparition speared to him at the solemn hour of Midnight. Having Ridden several Miles to visit a patient and having administered to his sufferings he ordered his Boro to return Home. He says he had to pass through a Large and heavy piece of Timber upon tha Borders of which was a graveyard in which no doubt Many of his Patien a a slept their last sleep having a fought their last battled death and the doctor. He was quietly Riding along when All at once his faithful Borse by the Way a spirited animal began to snort and prick up his ears and finally run Back evidently much alarmed. The doctor looked about him but could see be Hing and a purring his horse quite vigorously got him started Forward again when in a moment he evinced be same signs of fear. Here was a fix. Tha doctor looks around him again and about the Middle of the a City of the dead beholds an object As White at the quot driven Snow and about As Long As his Arm impeded some six feet in the air he looks at its while and begins to reflect and say to him tuft a a Cboin the name of common tense have i killed that his spirit should come to flaunt me a this dark after thinking awhile he a a Crews his courage to the sticking Point a determined that he would a not fail in finding out the ghost. So he put whip and spurs to his by be philos s id Rode straight Forward to see if it were a spirit of health or Goblin do do sure enough All the time keeping his Eye upon the White object. When getting pretty near As he thought his horse plunged suddenly into an open grave where no doubt the resurrection St bad been and be lost sight of the ghost. But looking around him when he Rode from the grave be saw it away off in one Corner of the burying ground. Determined not to a give it up leaving made up his mind to see and speak to a ghost he put whip and Spur to his horse and Rode full Speed Down to the Comer of the graveyard his head erect and Eye fixed until be came Bolt right up front to front the ghost when to and behold what should it be but father has old Skils faced Hort. The departed spirits of none of the doctors patients have Ever haunted him from that night the this. _ a the go Baal Are informed is away from Home a and the gentleman who officiates during Hie absence and who penned the above paragraph certainly has not occupied the editorial chair a great while or he would have had sagacity enough to perceive that he has exhibited the a Cloven toot a a Little too Well May col. Morgan exclaim a save me from my squawk Suie stator. The abort la in allusion to a remark which made in reference to the fact that the name of Oquawka does cot appear in the report of cel. Morgan. It is True that have not been Long m the editorial chair but dont mind the spectators fling at oar ver Dancy mind especially when find ourselves in such Good Coppery As the chief Engineer who comes in for g pretty round share of the spectators a Wrath and what he Means by exhibiting the a Cloven loot our editorial Jure nullity perhaps will not allow be exactly to comprehend. But Hope the learn Tom by experience. We thought ourselves extremely modest in our statement of certain facts and feel sure that the a a general will not suffer much thereby. If the Spectator Means by the a Cloven foot that the people of Barington Are pleased that the a bran Chi will be built forthwith to a Point opposite our City then it is certainly Correct. Holt hold of is bound to succeed. We unanimously agree the editor that a a the Best evidence of the Prosperity of a Community is indicated in the appearance and Success of its guess a Hall soon have to follow the example of our Friend and a a spread is. Tiia Ashin to have a new trial. A a letter from a lady in Havana says it has been decided that or. Rasber shall have a new trial on the 15th of november. He bears himself bravely and Hope the second trial has resulted in his acquittal. Cincinnati Price current of the 2flth says the Market for hogs has now fully opened and at All the packing Points throughout the West Ojo rations have commenced. Here the improved feeling noticed la get week has been fully sustained and the Market is finn at $4 50 to >4 60. We must again remain however that these prices Are above the views of Many packers but All the hogs offered so far have found purchasers. The receipts of Ohio and Indiana dogs Are still Light and the bulk of the receipts from All quarters has been to fill Contrael the daily offerings therefore have been in a very Small proportion to the number packed. Packers appear to be operating without particular reference to the sea Board Market present or prospective. A Large amount of labor will be employed on the various railroads in course of construction and to feed these labourers a considerable amount of provisions will be necessary. This it is supposed will diminish the surplus that will remain for shipment to the Seaboard. It is also proper to remark in this connection that a deficit in number and product of hogs is also relied of. We de not pretend to say whether these conclusions Are Correct or not. It my it be borne in mind that that the High prices will tend to diminish consumption. This is a great natural cause which governs demand As supplies govern prices. Our advices from the Cumberland Gap show that the number driven South is Likely to be about the same As last year. For the Telegraph. Messes. Editors a in thursday a paper i observed a Beautiful and Well written Ai Tice from the strange yet to several of us Well known and much admired pen of a Nina calling the attention of the ladies of Burlington to the subject of Charity. 1 not Only concur in sentiment Nina but applaud her forgiving a Public expression of those generous emotions which i Trust ill Call immediate attention to the Relief of a offering humanity. That Many amongst us Are in a sick and suffering condition is a fact indisputable and if our kind hearted ladies unite a a heart and hand a in performing the office of Good Samaritans have they not claims upon our generosity f for a one yes in behalf of Many i will claim the privilege of saying go on ladies. We will not Only give you our cheerful countenances but will Endeavor to a a hold up your i will not spend time in writing a Long article to in j Force the necessity of such step As the subject has already been Well represented but will Only suggest the idea of appointing committees to in j vet Gate each and every Ward of our City and 1 will Hazard the opinion that More distress and suffering will be found than is now dreamed of in the philosophy of Many of us. Go on ladies sour Mission in Titis world is one of love and Benevolence. Remember it was woman a High privilege to be last at the Cross arid first at the Tomb. I Hope that will Ere Long again hear from Nina by the Way of prescribing a proper course of action to effect the Noble object. In much haste yours Philo. I quot Art Republican. Mosey matters. In Boston for the week ending the 23d, the Money Market had undergone but Little or no change. The failure of the Well known House of Harnden and co., operated unfavourably upon the Stock Market a Large Quantity of East Boston Stock in Werbich they were largely interested was in co Quence thrown upon the Market. To the Enterprise of this firm is Boston indebted for the establishment of the line of steam propellers to Liverpool of which the s. Pioneer for the construction of the grand j unction Railroad and other works favourable to the growth of Boston. The Hope to entertained that they will soon recover from this misfortune.

On a he 1st of january and the City Bank of new York capital of $730,000, and entitled to a circulation of $500,000, on the 1st of july next. We presume that both will be re organized a Ider the general Law. When these Charters shall have expired there will remain sixty nine incorporated Banks in the state entitled to a circulation of $21,104,370, and an aggregate capita of 26,335.300. The Charters of two of these the Manhattan and dry Dynek companies i of this City Are unlimited in duration. The failure of the House of Gardner and j Bartlett of Boston took place on the 21st._ j or.

Some weeks since i observed an article in this paper Over the signatures of or. Joseph t. Kales and the Rev. Or. Johnson of this City informing the citizens of Burlington and Vicini prom the 5�n Francisco evening Picayune. Cali for aia Newa. The mormons have at length taken Possession of the Rancho of san Bernardino near la is Angelos for which they paid $102,01x1. $25,000 was paid Down and the remainder is to be paid in two equal annual to moments. D is said to be their intention to mild a great City there and a Railroad to Salt like is confidently spoken of. It is also said that the Heads of the Church in Deseret have Given directions to the mormons in Europe that ail the eur Gration to this country must in future come by the Way of the isthmus of Panama to san Diego. The population of san Bernardino is to be increased by five thousand within the next six months. It contains within its boundaries More than eighty thousand acres of excellent Laud a great part of which can be irrigated. The Santa Anna River runs through it furnishing a Large and unfailing Supply of water and having excellent Mill seats. The mountains near Are covered Pines sufficient to Supply lumber ail Southern California for years. The improvements to be immediately made will be of great Benefit to los Angelos county. This settlement commands the Cajon pass and will protect the Valley from further Indian depredations. A flouring Mill and several Taw Mills ill be erected there during the Rainy season. The tract of land included within the limits of san Bernardino embraces about sixteen leagues. The mormon emigration from Liverpool it is said amounts to thirteen thousand. Salt Lake City the head quarters to of the intention of the Baptist denomination f la mormons co Tams a population of Ftp a a establishing a College in this state and if As ,. 11 a a great inducements were offered Here As else where to locate it Here and soliciting some expression from the citizens upon the subject. I was favourably in Prev sed at the time the idea but As it was not convenient then i made no expression of what i believe to be the Opin a Ion of most of our citizens. It is unnecessary for one to urge the benefits or advantages of such an institution upon our citizens As 1 am persuaded that when the subject is once fairly before them they will exercise their Well know n perseverance and liberality in contributing to such a practicable useful and beneficial institution. I Well know that the present Icell decreed reputation of Burlington Fer Enterprise. Perseverance and generosity a been founded upon facts that stand Forth As living witnesses to the Justice of that admiration and applause which i amps been of generally bestowed by All who and the other settlements in the territory about As Many More. idea of the traffic Between san Francisco and the Southern mines May be formed from the fact that there Are at this moment ten steamers plying Between san Francisco and Stockton. There Are ten also plying Between san Francisco and Sacramento. The latter Are for the most part of a larger size than those on the san Joaquin River and make the trip of about 120 Miles in from seven to eight hours. There Are Teu other steamers plying from Sacramento places above that City. One year ago there was but one Steamboat in Oregon the Columbia now there Are eleven steamboats of different kinds running in the Columbia and Willamette Rivers not including the Pacific steamers sea Gull and Columbia running Between Oregon and California. The president a message. We in common the press of our City received the message on Friday night and immediately issued an extra which was distributed Early on saturday morning to our subscribers. And As they have doubtlessly read that important document for themselves any lengthy remarks of ours would be considered at least a work of super rotation. Upon a perusal of the message it appears to be a Plain Businesslike and comprehensive statement of facts concise recommendation to the consideration of Congress of certain measures and the modification of others. The invasion of Cuba occupies a prominent position in the message and it strongly urges the necessity of observing the principle of no intervention in the governmental policy of other nations and of respecting the Laws and treaties that have been established. The message refers in a very succinct manner to the financial condition of the country and leaves the details to the reports of the secretaries of the respective departments. Several modifications Are recommended in the army and Navy departments of the government and additional forces Are advised for the better Protection of our citizens living upon the frontiers of Mexico As Well As in California Oregon and new mex Ico. The attention of Congress is called to the Mineral lands of California and the president recedes from the manner of disposing of them ltd his last message and thinks it advisable to leave them As they Are at present. A change in the Tariff system is also advised and specific duties Are recommended wherever practical instead of the and Valorme this the president thinks would prevent much of me fraud at present Practised upon the custom houses. A Large increase has been made in the mail service and from the receipts of the first Quarter under the new rates a further reduction upon letters is deemed inexpedient at present but a simplification and modification of the rates upon printed matter is recommended. The president still adheres to his views of the Compromise measures set Forth in his last annual message and considers them a final adjustment of the questions embodied in he refers in pretty decided terms to the conduct of the Christiana and Syracuse rioters and maintains the necessity of the fugitive slave Law being respected As much As any other on the statute Book. He takes the ground that those persons who most strenuously object to the details of the for the recovery of fugitive slaves do it chiefly from their opposition to the Constitution itself. Of course partisans and politicians of different views will regard tha message different degress of favor or Disfavour but in its general tone and character aside from Peculiar party predilections think it will be looked upon As a document worthy of the High sources from which it has emanated. The tragedy at new Lata Mournful and appalling Accident at new York by which the lives of so Many children have been suddenly sacrificed and sorrow and desolation brought to Many a parental Hearth has infused a feeling of deep lamentation and sym Eathy not Only int a Vic mity of the occurrence it wherever the intelligence has sped on the electric wings of tha Telegraph. Every Aye is tearful every Throat is cloaked grief. The new York commercial advertiser of Friday in publishing an outlier of the melancholy events says a a the list shows fifty dead and forty eight injured. It is very possible end indeed probable that the name of All the sufferers have not Iet been reported As they were carried Home y their relatives soon after the occurrence. Baskets full of clothing taken from the bodies of the dead have been taken charge of by the police and Are now at the the same paper also says a a list evening there was a meeting of the commissioners trustees male teachers and others for the purpose of investigating the causes of the calamity. This morning a jury was Swo n in by Justice Bleakley the acting Coro j ner and they Are engaged to Day in visiting the various residences of the deceased to View the a bodies. It is not probable that any testimony will be taken until to Morrow. We abstain i from any remarks about the Security of the banisters. Chequest Ionoff contract erections will probably be discussed the following sympathetic outburst of the new York courier and enquirer on this occasion is no less Beautiful than True and has its application beyond the immediate scene of the heart rending calamity a a a tip Long since any catastrophe has so painfully thrilled our City As that which occurred yesterday afternoon in the ninth Ward. It sent a shudder through every feeling heart. The place the cause the circumstances the victim All combined to give fearful i Ingres St venets to the event. The evening files of thousands of households beamed on moistened eyes and pallid Cheeks amps the tale went round from father Mother sister brother. It was a tale indeed that came Home Home to every family association borne to every Domestic sympathy. It told too Well How fragile Are the a its most dearly prize. It brought to the mind thoughts of yearning hearts in an instant crushed anti Happy hearths in a moment made desolate. A tis Ever hard to yield to death the idols of our love. But to stand by the bedside of the dying one the spirit gently Looie itself from the Earth and daily put on More and More of its heavenly radiance is easy it is easy indeed in comparison what have to suffer when the loved one who but a moment before was rejoicing our soul like an imperishable Blessing is As it were in the twinkling of an Eye snatched from our Side forever. Who that has not experienced them shall imagine the pangs of that trial the anguish of those parents whose Darling ones crossed their thresh holds Cheeks flushed in health and eyes beaming in gladness Only to be brought borne bruised broken Corpse but this indeed is no theme for us.

We May not a a a is approve of the modes Operand of our a a a Thors to promote the cause of internal in profit it in our common state but so for As her general Prosperity is concerned Are at All asses in. Twe is one thing however that cannot a up hiring remarked and that is the profound a a knee of almost the entire press of our state regard to the Railroad from Burlington to a a. A dont say this to complain at All Ter a very sure that the improvements i urging from our cite in every direction will a for themselves.

Look for a moment at our p Ank Road Lailia ting from our City in every direction making this indeed the Star which is Ever to Light our state upon the Broad Road to future greatness and glory. Yes More than this her Power and influence have extended beyond the limits of our state crossed miss Mississippi Riv r into Illinois and there constructing the Peoria and Oquawka rail Road and the Warren and Burlington Plank Road both of which will at no Distant period be in successful operation. It May be Well while speaking of the institution in contemplation to Call the attention of our citizens to the towns and cities in our own state to May nothing it those in the surrounding state and in Brief to notice their Enterprise in an educational and literary Point of View. There is a Catholic Convent at Dubuque Iowa College at Davenport a presbyterian c Liege at West Point a methodist High school at it. Plea ant a female Seminary at Fairfield and the Iowa University one Branch a Iowa City another at Keokuk another at Fairfield and a fourth at Dubuque. Some of these Are in a flourishing condition and reflect credit upon their id aces of location while others for want of proper Energy and attention Are lingering along under an apathetic and delusive Hope. From tin Quay see that Burlington has been neglecting of overlooking to big great Branch of Inq it Rover edit while our neighbors have been gradually a a stealing a March upon it is Tiue have our Public school finished which is quite an Orn Ainet to our City and Auto or in contemplation which will be built next summer beside Many schools now in flattering Progress yet they Are All what May he termed common school in contradistinction to colleges where the youth among us can obtain a Good English and sufficient cd no a in education to enter us on a collegiate course of study. But this is not enough while see the Young Ines of our City and state leaving us to find an institution of learning to Preanie them for the h Gher spheres of a literary life when All these advantages could be Eai Silv obtained at Home. We want an institution which can look upon pleasure and Pride As a luminary lighted the brilliancy of literature Arul science one that would command distinction and attention abroad and respect and admiration at Home. Yes such a one As will be an ornament to our City a inestimable Benefit to our Community and reflect Honor upon our state. This is what i desire to see. This a what Burlington ought to. And doubtless will do. And a the by Ptim to denomination intend making a s Rong Effort for such an institution in our slate it i for our citizens to offer such inducements by Way of donations of land ac., Lor a building site a Are offered elsewhere in order to secure the location of the College Here. The j denomination prefer Burlington and surely the wealthy land holders will not refuse to make a sufficient donation of land in or near town tor j a such a purpose for beside the Benefit that would result to the City rum such an ins Titu j Tion. It would enhance the Worth of property around it Euffie Lieut to make the location of such k desirable to those owning Ian j in the Vicinity.

The president in his message takes a very decided ground in favor of the improvement of our great National Rivers and lakes by the general government. And if the will of some millions of people residing in the valleys of the Mississippi and its tributaries is to be respected. Congress will make such appropriations As the magnitude and importance of the works demand. One of the greatest evils of legislation is embodying too great a variety of matter in the same Bill thereby often defeating the whole. Take for instance the removing of the obstructions from the River below us and Why May not a separate Bill be drafted for the purpose alone and a dist Tinct appropriation made for it.

Flouring rapidity which Lorge merchant Mills for the Purchase and flouring of wheat Are being multiplied in this state prove that the production of that Staple is enlarging equal rapidity notwithstanding the annual rumours that obtain circular Ion setting Forth that the crop is a failure. We have notice in our Iowa Exchange for the present week mention made of some half dozen new merchant Mills either completed or in Progress. One 40 by 55 feet and four stories Ligin has just been completed an it commenced operations at Keokuk the Brick work of a very Large Mill at it.

On receiving intelligence that such design a vere entertained i lost no time in issuing such instructions to the proper officers of the United states a seemed to he called for by the occasion by the proclamation a copy of which is herewith submitted. 1 also warned those who might be in danger of being in engled into Tai sch me of it unlawful nature and of the penalties which they would incur. For some time there was reason to Hope that those measures had sufficed to prevent any such attempt this Hope however proved to be delusive. Very Early on the morning of the 3d of August a Steamer called the pamper departed from new Orleans for Cuba having on Board upward of tour Hundred armed men evident intention to make War upon the authorities of Cuba. This expedition was set on Fogt of in palpable violation of the Tew of the United state its Leader was a spaniard and several of the chief officers and some others engaged in it were foreigners. The persons composing it a Cweiber were mostly citizens of the United states. Before the expedition set out and probably before it was organized a slight insurrectionary movement which appears to have been soon suppressed taken place in the Eastern Quarter of Cuba. The importance of Thi movement a unfortunately so much exaggerated in the accounts eign Rev War. In avowed object was that foreign argue raised for the Purpo of restoring the House of Stuart to the throne should not be strengthened by recruit from England herself. All must see. That difficulties May arise in carrying the Laws referred to into execution in a country now having three or four thousand Miles of sea coast an infinite number of port and harbours and Small inlet., from some of which unlawful expeditions May suddenly set Forth without the knowledge of the government against the pose a Ion of foreign so ate.

Population of the Island not Only desired to throw off the authority of the Mother country but had resolved upon that step and had begun a Well concerted Enterprise for effecting it. The persons engaged in the expedition were generally Young and ill informed. The Steamer on which they embarked left new Orleans stealthily and from our own. The deep interest which feel in the spread of Liberal principles and the establishment of free government and the sympathy which witness every a Ruggle against oppression forbid that should be indifferent to a Case m which the Trone arum of a foreign Power is provoked to stifle Public sentiment an i repress the spirit of Freedom in any country.
