The Southern would respect Folly Call the attention of the present judicious representative of the stage company to the fact that much complaint exists by reason of the failure of the Southern mail. The evil is Felt from this City to Keokuk and the cause is attribute to the want of proper management on the part of the agents of the company who have refused or failed to make permanent reliable and satisfactory arrangements for crossing the mails Over Skunk River and the two Large creeks. Both ferryman and Drivers have exonerated themselves to passengers by attributing the fault to higher authority. As a general thing the mails up to within a few Days past have arrived with much regularity considering the condition of the roads arid streams and much Praise was due Anil was accorded to the Energy which secured these results. It much to be regretted that that Energy has been permitted to exhaust itself whereby serious inconvenience has resulted to the Public. There is no reasonable excuse for the failure Between this place and Keokuk. The condition of the streams has been Well known for some time past and if old arrangements Winch secured us the mails regularly during a worse state of things could not be continued there has been ample time for making new ones. The main dependence of the up River press for news is upon the St. Louis Page ers furnished by floats. No steamers from that Point have visited us since thursday last the Southern mails have failed for several Days past and a e Are consequently without late dates from any Quarter whatever. In Olden times when a weekly Sheet was deemed sufficient for the Public wants these failures were lightly Felt but in these go a head times of rail roads dailies and tri weeklies these accidents amount almost to calamities.

A poet would say that this was a propitious hour. The stillness of death reigned in the streets and the silence and solemnity of night gathered enchantment from the Pale and glimmering Light of the noon As it reflected upon that Sheet of water giving such living evidence of the majesty of god. The time circumstances and my Peculiar state of feelings All conspired to give interest to the the first few sounds which fell upon my ears transported me into an unknown state.
