The sucker girls Are certainly entitled to the Palm thus far. Our Burlington ladies As yet have not so far As is known fully agreed upon the precise style to be adopted. Inasmuch however As our Oquawka friends from their own accounts appear to be subject to occasional inundations it would be Well for them perhaps to Guage their gowns according to High water Mark.

In this Way they succeeded in stopping it on the North , before it reached Dupont Street but in every other direction in which it could spread it took its own course. To the South it spread to Bush Street and to the Eastern part of Jackson Street. Every thing to the East of Dupont Street to the wharf were destroyed. The blocks Between Dupont and Kearney , West of Portsmouth Square As far As Bush Street Are in ashes j besides these thirteen blocks. Almost every building in the neighbourhood was destroyed one thousand buildings is within the Range of truth. We judge $10,000,-000 could not replace the destruction some place it at five times that amount.

And that ti1e work would go on. We Are now enabled to state More fully upon the authority of gentlemen who were present from this City the character of the proceedings of the meeting at Knoxville on Friday last. The court House was crowded and All Points interested fully represented. The utmost Harmony prevailed throughout the deliberations of the meeting and the highest degree of enthusiasm seemed to actuate the feelings of All present. The Hon. Charles Mason of this City presided. The first business in order was the election of directors which resulted in the Choice of the following gentlemen Viz f James w. Ori mrs b1rum.t0.x, a Charles Masott. F a. C. Hardin \ Samuel Webster. Julius Manning 1 James Knox. Fat. I Xerox Asa i it. Reed peo Kiv a Rudolph us Rouse Lukia i Washington Cockle. Or. Knox of Knox Villa was subsequently chosen president by the directory. After the election of directors resolutions were adopted by the stockholders instructing the directory to procure from the governor the title of the state to the old Grade Between Peoria and Farmington to contract for its repair and for the superstructure and to put the line those Points in running order at the earliest possible moment. Also declaring that the Faith of the company was irrevocably pledged to the construction of the Road from Peoria to Monmouth and thence upon a direct line to the Mississippi River opposite Burlington leaving the line Between Monmouth and Oquawka if built at All to be completed after the Road shall be built to this place. Also pledging the company to declare no Cash dividend until the Road shall be completed to Burlington but that All dividends should be made in certificates of Stock and the Cash proceeds of the Road to be scrupulously devoted to the construction Aud continuation of the Road to this Point. The directors were authorized to negotiate the Bonds of the company to the amount of $500,000 and to pledge the subscriptions and property of the company to secure the payment. Immediate Steps will be taken for procuring a Survey of the route by an Engineer of first rate reputation and upon whose estimates both the Public and capitalists May rely. It is the impression that the Road can be constructed on As cheap terms a any now in operation 111 the country. If so the Stock will be sought after with avidity As ail who arc acquainted with the resources of the coun by through which the Road w ill pay to say nothing of the immense travel and Trade from this Point w ill at once see that the profits will be such As to attract immediate investment and thus secure the completion of the work at in Early Day. The director of addition to the duties above designated have been authorized to open books for subscription at thur respective places of residence and it is presumed now that the Ball is fairly in motion and the Enterprise rendered a fixed fact ki.4 an inevitable result that Large amounts will at once be added at the various Point interested. Peoria it is confidently expected will at least quadruple her subscriptions. Being the first recipient of the great advantages which Are to flow from this important Enterprise she w ill of course see her interest in its earliest completion to this place. It 1 w Ith Peculiar Pride and pleasure that w e Felicitated our fellow citizens not Only of Buffington but of the vast and Rich Interior to the West of us upon the Brilliant Prospect w hich Are now before us and which Are so soon to ire realized in the completion of this great work a no ground for us Shiv Ings now remain All is confidences All is Union All is Energy and enthusiasm the directory embrace the highest degree of character Talent and practical ability and every Confidence May justly be Felt in the efficiency and Success of their management. We Are also proud to add that a most favourable and unanimous feeling for our City was manifested by our Illinois friends and that they look to Burlington alone a tire terminus upon the Mississippi. In fact Burlington so far has been at the head of the Enterprise and the earnestness of her efforts and the constancy and Zeal with which she a urged the policy justly entitle her to the High appreciation which she every where enjoys abroad. The great West. The recent National census is making it apparent to the most superficial observer that a the West will soon possess that weight in the National councils and receive that Justice at the hands of Congress which has so Long been denied to. Or withheld from it. Its representation at the seat of government under the new apportionment will be larger much larger than and other sectional interest. It is the fashion to speak of the rapid growth and increasing importance of the West a a result never contemplated by even the most prescient and sagacious minds of the past. This is a mistake. Not to speak of others there were avas Hogton Jefferson and the elder Adams who to a great extent foresaw its future. On this account it was especially a favorite with Jefferson who did All that Lav in his Power to Dev tope is growth contemplating its existence As the Only counterpoise to what he considered the aristocratic influences of banking and Commerce at the East. The Purchase of Loujuana the exploring expedition of Fike. Of Lewi and Clark and others resulted from his influence and were designed to promote the interests of the West. As to Adams it is a Well attested circumstance that at the treaty of peace at part 111 1782, which recognised our National Independence As Well As settled the Hou daiy line Between great Britain and the United states or. Oswald the commissioner appointed on the part of great Britain to negotiate a treaty of peace proposed As the basis of limits to make the Ohio the Northern Boundary of the United states. Under the representations of the count de Vergennes the French minister by whose judgment the american commissioners in their instructions were to be guided. Or. Franklin acceded to the suggestion. John Adams however seconded by or. Jay resisted the promo a it on principally on the ground that the Teni Lory North of the River had been conquered by general Clark in 1777, and was at the time in the occupation of the United states. This was the ostensible and probably the Only Safe ground to rest the claim on but Adams private letters show clearly that it was in View of the immense future value of the territory thus disputed that the objection was this at the time broke up the i Franklin suggested whether it would not be better to to yield that Point than fail in making a treaty so desirable in other respects for America. Or. Adam who found himself sep ported by or. Jay w As inflexible. Oswald ascertained through a third per on sent by him for the purpose of sounding or. Adams that or. A. Had declared his determination to write Home urging on his government to carry on the War so Long As they could maintain a single Soldier in the Field in preference to accepting such a Boundary and being under peremptory orders to conclude a treaty at All hazards and on the Best terms possible Oswald then proposed the line As it now stands. It is not perhaps so Well known that general Washington was in Early Days the largest landholders in the West and evidently contemplated changing his residence in reference to this fact. Washington always regarded the peace of 1763 As a Mere temporary expedient to quiet the Savages and being better acquainted with the value of Western lands Tham most of those we could linens he Early began to buy beyond the mountains.

A Nie truth of the matter is when we formed Otto Mwau flank Road. We copy from the Des Moines Republic a very sensible article on the subject of a Plank Road connection Between and this place. We can assure the Republic that our citizens duly appreciate the an Van tag of Auch connection and have been flattering themselves that they were doing something towards pushing it Forward. If to build a Road to my pleasant and to assist in building one thence to Fairfield is not doing something towards favouring a connection with then have we All at this place been Labouring under a misapprehension. If will come direct to Fairfield or part Way even Burlington will meet Here but it we have to build towards Keokuk in Lour Plank Road company extending from this place to Libertyville we looked to a connection with Burlington As the citizens of that place were then progressing rapidly but unceremoniously. With their Burlington and it. Plea it aut Road while those of Keokuk were infatuated with the Dubuque and Keokuk rail Road Humbug. Subsequently Keokuk apparently recovered from her delusions and began to talk of building a Plank Rood up the Divide.

This move on the part of Burlington and our want of Confidence in the Keokuk move until they shall have fully commenced heir work rendered it necessary that we should rest on our oars until we could have some Assurance that a Road would be built from one of those Tours to Libertyville As the and Libertyville Road would be Worth nothing without it. Then while we desire a Plank Road connection with Burlinghan and Are ready to engage in the construction of our part of it As soon As we can have any reliable Assurance that we can Hae a continuous route from this place to that cite we will take the Liberty to remind our friends there that if they wish to secure the vast Trade of this Valley and the extensive Region of country South and West of Here they must give an Earnest of their willingness to assist in the construction of the Road West of it.

It appears that despite her love when a Young lady for a poor musician of her native cite she was married by her father to a gentle Man of new they came to Paris where through her mothers Aid Madame used to receive by every a Teamer letters from her melodious sweetheart. This was discovered by her husband who sent for the father of his wife and requested him to take Back his daughter. The Parson refused to do so though he was accused by his son in Law of having deceived him for he fold him that he knew his daughter had no love for any body hut himself. In such a disagreeable alternative the Young woman left her husband and retired with his consent and that of her father to the Housa of an episcopal Clergyman of Paris w Here she now lives.
