Experience in Railroad a already 7e-Mot started that products Cun he transport a to Market except for very Short distances More cheaply Eert airily and safely on railroads than in any no liar Way to a Gay of the to ii fatigue sex no a and danger of the producer in marketing it by any other Means. Witness the cities of Cincinnati new York and Philadelphia which Are mainly supplied with even their milk and butter by their , and that at fat less Cost than it can he furnished by any other Way. 3d."the producer upon or near the line of a Road a should remember that it brings the Market to 111# a Loorz for his wheat Ami other productions will always he Saleable for Cash and under Active Competition at any Point on the Road. It Maysville is the in a ret the Price on the Roan will always equal those of that Point less the freight a and Thi freight is not a loss to the producer for it is uniformly less than he coulis Market for by any other Means. 4th. It is a principle Well settled by experience that every Public work create to a great extent its own business by stimulating protections Tracie and manufactures and that it enhances tie value of productions and saves the tir Ducer More in the expense of marketing by a ringing the Market to his door than it take in charges for transportation. If tins were not so we should have fewer Public works and the Railroad interest especially would not lie As flourishing As it in. A new York letter in the Philadelphia inquirer says another Gas discovery has been made in generating Gas w Inch if All that is said a of it is True is a great discovery.

And probably not for that Price the contract amount to tymm Quarter of a million. Appreciate fully the very great importance of the approaching election in one respect Viz that Iff determining for or against the loan in and of the construction of the Peoria Railroad and i a it in Aid of the construction of Plank and Bridge leading to this City. In our Humble estimation the destiny of Burlington Jepe mls mainly if not entirely upon the decision of the a oter at the ballot Box on Somlay next in favor of the proposed unless these Loans shall he voted and unless the proposed improvements a Hall be accomplished w e May at once Bill Adieu to All our sanguine exertion Ami make up our Mills to remain a a a death Wood in the Way of the Ball of Progress whilst the balance of the world Are rapidly outstripping us in the race for prominence and Prosperity. V but we take it for granted that a very Large majority of our Citi zips Are in favor of the Loans for the purpose proposed la indeed we have heard of but one or two who heritage for a moment to a take the the very great advantages of the improvements in View we believe Are a it Minitte it on All Halls and properly estimated. No Ohe so far a we have been Able to learn doubts the increased value which will he Gwen to property or the immediate and almost magical growth of our City. A new impetus would he Given to every Branch of Trade Ami Illus try capital and emigrants would at once flow in upon us Ami All the benefits resulting from these causes would of course ensure to our entire population. There is no danger that our City will become involve cd by dipping into these enterprises on the other hand it is certain that she will become involved in lasting ruin unless she put her shoulder to the w Heel and push them Forward to completion. The Only doubt which we have heard suggested was in relation to the ways and Means to be provided for defraying the interest on the Loans. As we have much respect for the source from which this objection come we will give our Humble views of the Malter with the Hope of removing what we deem to be erroneous impress in in. In the first place our City May be said to be free from debt in a diction to which if we Are not mistaken she has a Reserve my in the shape of some uns Ohl lots. And in the second place it is to be presumed that the certainty of the construction of these improvements would increase the value of property among us from 50 to 100 per cent., to say nothing of the taxes to be derived from a largely increased population and a greatly extended Trade. Each of these result would follow immediately upon the undertaking of the enterprises in View and it won certainly be a most reasonable calculation to say that our present Revenue would be immediately doubled. Thinly another Means of providing for the interest May be found in issuing City Bonds for the same the interest on which would certainly be so Light that we should Enji Prience no trouble in meeting it at any time. It is understood we presume that instead of borrow no the whole amount at once City by my is wought be issued As the work progressed and paid to contractors who will negotiate them As they May. The usual plan observed in such works is this the Engineer at stated period say once in two weeks or once a month goes along the line and makes estimates of the amount of work done and upon i certificate Eun tractors Are paid within 20 per cent of the w Hole amount estimated the 20 per cent being with Ehi for contingencies such As mistakes future failures a. In this Way the Reader will perceive a year might elapse before the whole amount voted would be withdrawn Ami the interest would run As a matter of course Only from the Date of the Bond. The City of Alton in Illinois which has a population about equal to our own has adopted a policy similar to the above and has i used Bonds to the amount of $200,000 in and of the construction of the Alton and Spring Tell rail Road and which we understand were readily negotiated by the contractor Here is no reason Why Burlington Botulas free is we Are from debt would not be equally negotiable in any Market. But. Leaving All there considerations out of View and supposing the whole $90,000 to fall upon us As a debt we for one would he in favor of shouldering it for the reason that we believe our citizens could Well a lord to a to so and a Sigil make lieu Vretis of thousands by the operation. Been had a More Liberal policy govern a the efforts of our neighbors of the mount a As a general thing our return for product a have been mainly in merchandise Seldom or never in Money the profits and the Cash being reserved for the Benefit Iff St. Louis. We do not a Fate Thi by Way of complaint hut merely a a fact in the policy of St. Louis. We might a to instance anon her fact As illustrative of the selfish a of Missouri were it not already too tree a in the Public mind of re Viire the trouble Tiz that of Imp losing a tax upon a certain portion of pro Lucers and virtually rendering contraband one of the Staple of Western Tracie. That St. Louis is lamentably behind the spirit of the age in the matter of in Ernat improvements which would add so much to her interests and reputation is a subject of her own concern and one with which we have no special right to find fault. That we however who partake of a a different spirit Shuhl seek for More congenial acquaintances is natural enough Ami become unavoidable As we become More certainly convinced that ancient prejudices still predominate Harnung our former ones. But we have a right to complain of St. Louis on the score of her uniform indifference to the improvement of the navigation of the upper Mississippi. We have called conventions from time to time in order to unite the interests of the four adjoining states in the removal of obstruction at the two rapids. St. Louis has invariably a decline a to participate in these efforts Ami we believe her delegation in Congress and that of the state have As Irva Riaboy refused to vote a an appropriation. A Inore Blind or selfish policy was never pursued by any state or City. Despairing of an from such a source the people of the upper Mississippi have been compelled to cast about them for an outlet through some other Channel and to some other Market. The improvements contemplated extending from Chicago to Cairo and fed by lateral branches extending from various Point of the Mississippi will Render us Imle Pement at once of the rapids and of St. Loui and at the same time furnish us a cheaper and More constant outlet and a the Choice of a dozen markets better than St. Louis Ever was and Cash ones at that. For the future then a Large portion of the tray be which has thus far been tributary to St. Louis will be divided mainly Between Burlington. Galena Chicago and Peoria an it they will soon be seen to Spring into vigorous growth upon the proceeds of a Trade which St. Louis will have lost through her own want of Enterprise. The sky is Bright. Since the satisfactory adjustment of the Chi Cago and Galena Ruil Roa difficulty end its final location by the Northern route Galena is beginning to command the attention of the East which its great advantages As a commercial Point entitle it to. When the Railroad Between this City and Chicago is completed and a direct communication opened with the Eastern cities Galena will be the Point at which All the Trade and travel from the East will diverge to the North South Ami West and will be the a Lepot and shipping Point for All the Mississippi River above Burlington and for the produce raised West As tar As Council Bluff in Nebraska fat the .
