Up water still pour upon us rising for the Jgr to forty eight hours at the rate of an Inch anti exceeding the flood of 44 by some five the houses situated in the Bottom Are six of it Dit feet under water. The new Bridge on 3d Jar Yeti out of sight that on main Street near i to a considerable portion of Valley Street / looked and we have before us the Prospect 0f continued Rise for several Days to come As i report from the North unite in representing an extraordinary Rise in All the tributaries and a swell of several feet moving towards us. Considerable damage has been done at do p of and Muscatine by the loss of Bridges and Ether property. The River at Dubuque is said of it be Sevon feet higher than Ever before known a remarkable Rise truly so far As anything is known of the history of the upper Mississippi and one which will probably add three to four Fco to to its depth at this place. So far the damage at this place and to those connected with its interests is Small in compar Igor. With that which must fall upon some of owns South of us. Our losses or that which fall upon our citizens is confined exclusively to the Wood dealers Many of whom have lest largely and in most instances their entire lots. Or. Drew on the Illinois Side some four Miles above is the heaviest sufferer having lost some Feen Hundred cords of Wood besides his entire Fri consisting of Over one Hundred acres of wheat. The City foundry is the Only establishment which has been compelled to suspend operations. It is now several feet under the loss to the enterprising proprietors is in the suspension of operations at the most Busy season of the year and is therefore to them a misfortune of some magnitude. The Illinois Bottom for several Miles above sad below us and for several tiles in Width is flooded to the depth of from four to eight feet. The Bridge across the Prairie Slough built at the expense of the general government has been swept away and scattered in frag by ants through the Bottom. The other Bridges jul remain but the chances we regret to learn a re altogether in favor of their destruction. Reports from Alexandria represent the people of that ill fated town As literally swallowed up in the Waters the whole place being covered to tie depth of Many feet and the opposite Bank of the Mississippi being the Only land in View. At Hannibal and for six Miles above and fifty Miles below the Waters have a sweep of several Miles in Width carrying a wide destruction before Obein. The Illinois is reported far above its Banks Ami a wide spread desolation Marks its course. What is to be the effect of this great flood up to the lower country heaven Only knows but present appearances would indicate that a dreadful Fate awaits it. The Southern streams Are All reported at an unusually High stage and when to these shall be added the mighty torrents now rolling Onward from the Northern streams we a Hall probably hear of a deluge such As has never been known upon this continent. Serious damage has been done to the Dyke of St. Louis and the Prospect is that the entire work which has Cost years of labor and Large sum of Money will be swept away before the increasing current. The Missouri is at a High stage but is not advancing which May favor to seme extent the people of St. Louis who but for this fortunate event would experience disasters compared with which the flood of forty four would be Small indeed. Dri it roat old and highly respectable journal comes to us enlarged and improved a Gratifying evidence we Trust of the growth of that Beautiful town and also of the Liberal patronage extended by an intelligent Public. The Gazette has Ever been conducted with ability preserving at All times a dignified and Manly tone of sentiment. Heart amount of freights the present season from the upper Mississippi has greatly exceeded the capacity of our regular steamers. Although for weeks and months past our store houses have been pouring out their contents with unceasing flow yet so great is the Over plus on hand that our enterprising fellow citizen or. Walker was compelled on saturday lat to Telegraph the packet Steamer new England to extend her trip above Keokuk. I order to make a shipment of 1,000 barrels of flour to St. Louis. Finding she could spare the Tine and afford the Root the new England promptly responded to the Call and it is hoped will Bare no reason to regret her visit. O. Welcome packet Steamer new England arrived at our Landing on sunday morn ing last having on Board a Large and fashionable party of ladies and gentlemen from Keokuk who had thanks to them for it embraced that occasion to pay our City a flying visit. We Are i glad to hear that they had a delightful trip and i sincerely Hope now that the ice is broken that the Call will be returned and that the Hospital ties or life will continue to distinguish in a pc Culiar manner the frequent and Friendly infer course Between the people of these two glorious cities.

The Trade of the two Points it is hoped will add much to the Prosperity of each during the existence of the present embargo which excludes the Commerce of the balance of Mankind. Parra at Cedar . D. Finch has issued a prospectus for a paper to be published at Cedar rapids in Linn county to be called a a the progressive Era a democratic in politics. Linn county is one of the richest in the state and is filling up with a highly intelligent and enterprising population. The town of Cedar rapids we Are gratified to learn it making rapid advancement in improvement and population and bids fair to become one of the principal towns of the Interior. Her Prosperity in View of the proposed line of steamers becomes an object of Earnest desire among our citizens. Success then to All their enterprises and Best wishes to a a the progressive Era. A �3 our Friend of the Muscatine journal will please do us the favor for the future to be sure he a right before he goes ahead.

Fob St. Beautiful Steamer die Vernon is advertised to leave St. Louis on tuesday next for the Falls of St. Anthony with a pleasure party.

Laying or Fob want or Are told that several of the boats in this Trade will be compelled to Lay up on account of the impossibility of procuring Wood a new wrinkle in the navigation of the upper Mississipp. The a oldest inhabitants will be Likely to Bear the fact in mind for a Long time to come. arms and accoutrements for the equipment of a Volunteer infantry corps in this City have just arrived from St. Louis from whence they were forwarded upon the Requist of gov.

It beats the worlds fair All hollow Public citizens of Burlington have subscribed seventy nine thousand and one Hundred dollars m the Stock of the Peoria and Oquawka Railroad and an instalment of five per cent is called for by the 7th of june. We observe that two thousand dollars is the highest sum subscribed by any one person hut everybody seems to have taken in proportion to his Means and there seers to be a great number of persons in that enterprising City who Are of opinion that they can take at least one Hundred dollars of Stock. In this Way this Road is to be built forthwith because everybody has an Irmer est in pushing it along. Burlington in its corporate capacity has subscribed a Large amount �?$50,000, we think. All the counties along the line of the route have taken Stock the people have subscribed liberally and Peoria has done the same thing As a corporation and by her citizens. 1 he Railroad will be ninety Miles in length and we shall not be surprised if two Vears hence our shortest Way to Burlington is by the Way of the Illinois River and this Railroad.

Preparatory to the nuptials the mayor gave a splendid entertainment at which Young Lynch fancied his intended Bride viewed his Spanish Friend with too much regard. He accused his beloved Anges of unfaithfulness to him and she irritated at his injustice disdained to deny the charge a Quot a they parted in anger.

The of the execution an immense crowd had assembled who cried loudly for mercy to the culprit.

A St Louit tiie Battle of Hohenlinden. By 1. T. Headley. The Iser and the inn As they flow from the Alps towards the Danube were nearly forty Miles apart. As they approach the River the space Between them becomes one elevated Plain covered chiefly with sombre dark Pine Forest crossed by two roads Only while the Mere country paths that wind through it Here and there gives no space to the marching columns. Moreau had advanced across this Forest to the inn where on the first of december he was attacked and forced to retrace his step and take up his position on the further Side at the Village of Ilohne Linden. Here where one of the great Road debauched from the Woods he placed Neyland Grouchy. The austrian in four massive column plunged into the gloomy wilderness designing to meet in the Plain of Hohet Linden the Central column marching a Ong a he High Road while those on either Side made their Way through amid the Trees As they Best could. It was a Stormy december when these seventy thousand men were swallowed from sight in the dark defiles of Hohenlinden. The Day before it had rained heavily and the roads were All impassible hut now a furious Snow storm darkened the heaven and covered the ground with one White unbroken surface. The by paths were blotted out and sighing Pines overhead drooped with their snowy burdens a Bove the rank or Shook them Down on the Hea is of the soldiers As the artilery wheels smote against their trunks. It was a strange spectacle those Long columns out of sight of each other stretching through the dreary Lorest by themselves while falling Snow sifting Over the rocks made the unmarked Way still More solitary the soft and yielding mass broke the tread of the advancing hosts while the artillery and am munition and baggage wagons wave Forth a muffled sound that seemed prophetic of some Mournful catastrophe. The Centre column alone had 100 Cannon in it train while behind them were five Hundred wagons the whole closed up the slow moving cavalry. Thus marching it came at about 9 of clock k upon Hohenlinden and attempting to Debauch into the Plain when Grouchy fell upon it with such fury that it was forced Hack into the Woods. In a moment the Forest was alive with echoes and its gloomy recesses illuminated with the Blaze of artillery. Grouchy Grandjean and Ney put Forth incredible etl Orts to keep this immense Force from deploying into the open Field. The two Lormer struggled with the Energy of desperation to hold their ground and although the soldiers could not see the enemy a lines the storm was so thick yet they aimed at the flashes that issued from the Woods and thus the two armies fought. The Pine Trees were Cut in two like Reeds by the artillery and fell with a crash on the austrian columns while the fresh fallen Snow turned red with the Fli Wirig blood. In the meantime Richen Pance who had been sent by a circuitous route with a single division to attack the enemy a rear had accomplished his Mission. Though his division had been Cut in two and irretrievably separated by the austrian a left Wing the Brave general continued to Advance and with Only three Hundred men fell boldly on forty thousand austrians. As soon As Moreau heard the sound of his Cannon through the Forest and the alarm is spread amid the enemy a ranks he ordered Ney and Grouchy to charge full on the austrian Centre. Checked then overthrown the broken austrian column a rolled Back in disorder and utterly routed. Cha Beli the poet stood in a Tower and gazed on this terrible scene and in the midst of the fight compose in part that stirring ode which is known As far As the English language is spoken. The Depths of the Forest swallowed the Slang gling hosts from sight but still there issued Forth from its bosom shouts and veils mingled with the Thunder of Cannon and All the confused noise of Battle. The austrians were utterly Rou Ted the frightened Ca airy went plunging through t in crowd of fugitives into the Wood the in Tiller men Cut their to ices and leaving their guns behind mounted their horses and galloped away and that magnificent column As if by some violent expo Ion was hurled in shattered fragments on every Side. For Miles the White ground was sprinkled with dead bodies and when the Battle left the Forest and the Pine Trees stood Calm and silent in the wintry night piercing cite and groans in sued out of the gloom in every direction sufferer answering sufferer a. They Lay and writhed on the cold Snow. Twenty thousand men were scattered there amid the Trees while broken carriages and wagons and deserted guns spread a perfect wreck around.

Could be had in profusion for the trouble of miking it Bottom land on the Missouri were the Labelling importance of having All plants including fruit named even in Small gardens cannot be too clearly pointed out. A Plant May have Beautiful foliage and Flowers but without a name it yields comparatively Little interest. Every Plant has a history of its own and the first step towards obtaining a knowledge of that history is its name the next its native country and the year of introduction into stir Garden. A Garden of plants without name is like a Library of books without their exterior superscription. Numbers Are Only useful to nurserymen. All Garden plants should be properly named. The season of propagation i chiefly when plants Are out of Bloom and the want of care in retaining their names too frequently to a confused nomenclature. The vast numbers of new plants which Are being continually introduced As Well a the Host of Garden varieties every year brought under the Amateur s notice Are quite perplexing to him unless constant attention to Correct Labelling is observed. Then again with regard to fruit Jiow much uncertainty would be removed by keeping labels of a permanent kind to every tree a Small gardens cannot or ought not to find room for indifferent kinds of fruit or Uncertain bearer hence the importance and advantage of knowing every kind we cultivate. How much trouble is thereby avoided for it frequently happens that the difficulty and expense of obtaining the name of a single fruit Are much greater than the attention necessary in keeping the names to a Small collection which the limited space of a suburban Garden admit. With respect to the particular kind of Label which is Inot desirable to employ there is a Good Deal of uncertainty. Some persons prefer some of tie new kinds new in existence while others adhere to the old wooden labels which after ail have not been very satisfactorily superseded whatever kind of material is employed however the names should be accurately and distinctly written.

Early serves so distinctly to give a notion of Progress As to contemplate the landmarks of the past. For this reason i copy from the contemporary press the history of the first Steamboat voyage on the Ohio and Mississippi that of the Rae Orleans this Steamboat was buit at Pittsburg in 1311, by a. Roosezell agent for Fulton lining ton. A subscription for the building of the boat had been both in new York and Pittsburg but failed Little Confidence Psi in entertained in new York of the practicability of running Stream vessels on our Western Waters.

During the War period there were several ministers of the gospel among the pioneers of Boon s lick whose pious labors though much interrupted were not wholly retarded. Among j fhe a were messes.

The first houses erected for religious meetings As were the first court j houses were of logs rough Hen. Schools for the elementary branches were taught in log Cabin the floor of which was of nature s own providing. Books were scarce and anything that had Reading matter on its pages was used. A few biographical incidents will close our sketches of the Early boons lick settlements. Col. Benjamin Cooper deservedly recognized a the Leader was we think a native of Virginia but was among the Early pioneers to Kentucky. By marriage he was related to Daniel Boon and a companion with him in the adventures and wars of Border life. Lie served a lieutenant in the disastrous Battle at the Blue licks and was in several campaigns from Kentucky. He settled in Madison county from which with Samuel Brown another of the old pioneers of Kentucky and who had seen much service to Missouri in 18i 6.�? that and the following were the seasons of migration from that part of Kentucky. Col. Coo her was a Man of High Ami firm principles a bold daring intrepid Man of Quick temper but prudent and cautious hence always selected by the shrewd Frontier men As a Leader in defending their stations against the his Chance for education in Early life was Small yet he possessed a Clear and vigorous intellect and during a Long life of activity and Enterprise on the frontiers acquired a Large Stock of practical knowledge and Enji Prience. In Wood Craft Hunting and Indian warfare he was thoroughly trained. He became a professor of religion and a member of the Baptist Church in Kentucky and maintained during life of character. He was made colonel of the militia in the boons lick country when organized under the Laws of the territory and in 1320, was elected a member of the state Senate from How Ard county. About 1822 or 1823, col. Cooper led a p dirty of traders to Santa be in one of the Early expeditions. Our impression is that at a subsequent period he removed North West perhaps to the Platte country. We know not the Date not the circumstances of his death. Stephen Cole who it will be recollected was terribly wounded at the time of the death of his brother was illiterate yet made a Good a Squire or magistrate for what he lacked in a a Book learning a he made up in Strong common sense at the commencement of the Santa be Trade which had its origin in Howard county in 1822, county brother of or.
