He further demonstrated by facts and figures that the immediate and consequential Dianta a is of the Road would Render it a most profitable work. Our townsman or. Starr made an Able and forcible speech in which he stated that a Ore than half the whole population of Iowa is South of a line drawn from the North Side of Dpi Moines county due West and that this fact alone was a powerful reason Why the Road he it i terminate at this place. There is another fact we should not lose sight of. And that is that in a Short time we shall have Plank roads radiating from our City out to different portions of the state. Now if the Trade and travel Are to be diverted from us by inducements at other Points then our roads shall become comparatively useless and those who have invested capital in them will find it an unprofitable bus mess. Then let the interest to and Prosperity of our City and surrounding country a Al to the liberality of business men and citizen generally. Robbery. Or fellow townsmen Millican Clark e�q., who follows a general collecting business informs us that while on a visit to Lancaster Keokuk county Iowa on the 18th of last month he bad ins pocket picked of a number of notes and accounts belonging principally to merchants of this City or.

And As a High toned and Hono a Bie gentleman no Man stood More eminent in the common nifty. We congratulate the gent upon his appointment to the important station arid Hope it Mav prove both a pleasant arid profitable one to him and that the decline of his life May be As Calm and Happy a some portions of it have been eventful and afflicting. His family have doubtless the kind congratulations of our com no Ruth. Delphia Maryland her Baltimore Ohio her Cicinnati Missouri her St. Louis Etc. Etc. No the question arises Liat shall be the Metropolis of Iowa it must be either Keokuk Bur Migton Muscatine or Dubuque. And it depends upon the Enterprise and Public spirit of the citizens of each one which it shall be. And mor than this there is no time to be lost in procrastination for that City which within the next five years offers the greatest inducements to secure the Trade from the East and to attract the Trade from the West of us will inevitably get the Ascendancy end maintain it. Railroads will within a few years terminate at different Points on the Mississippi and those places where they do terminate Are destined to flourish whilst the others must decline or Progress but slowly. Now is the accepted time for Burlington. Now is the Golden Opportunity will she or not embrace it ? she has at this time the Ascendancy will she retain it ? these Are important questions for our people to answer. And if answered affirmatively they must be Active vigilant energetic and Liberal. The people of the country West of us have their eyes directed particularly to our City they have Confidence in stir business men. And Manifest in All directions a preference for our City. Then let us meet them half Way if we can. And let them find Here at this place an outlet for All their surplus pro Luce. Let them find at Burlington a ready and a constant Market and they w ill come to i. Let our citizens go hand in hand with the people of Warren and Knox counties in building the rail Road from this to Peoria let them co operate with and assist our own peo pie we est of us and in All directions in constructing their Plank roads to terminate Here at a common Centre and Burlington must and will be the Emporium of Iowa. Our City. A great Many very Good and very conscientious people in our old and Eastern states but who have travelled very lift. And therefore have never been far from Home think the West is a very wicked place indeed. And they Are fully satisfied that the towns and cities along the Hanks of the missis a i Sippi Are the very hotbeds of All the vices in the catalogue of crime while the country around is in a Sorl of transition state from that of barbarism to civilization. That Many have received those impressions there is not a single doubt an i in the goodness of their heart they deplore our benighted condition. To All such we would say make a visit to Iowa and spend some time with us in the City of Burlington and we will show you whether we Are a Christian or a Heathen people. Take the Sabbath Day and we will make the assertion that there Are but few cities or towns of equal ixe in any Pait of the country where it is More uniformly or strictly observed than Here. Go to any and Alt of our churches and there Are a Good Many and there will he seen As Large and attentive congregations As can he found anywhere. Traveller and strangers have been struck with the extraordinary degree of decorum they see exhibited by All classes in our churches. Tin streets Are generally free upon that Day from All excitement and were it not for the arrival and departure of steamboats there would he no signs of secular employment. Take the evenings of the week and after business hours Are Over and the City becomes As quiet and tranquil As a sleeping child upon its i Notheis a breast. We Are not afraid to assert that there is no City of equal size wih Burlington even in the East where the general Standard of morality is higher than that of our citizens. What we intended to Sav when we commenced this article was not to let any of our Eastern people be prevented from coming among us for fear that they might be deprived of the advantages of schools of churches and of the society of intelligent and moral a. From the Y. Day Book. A a City it my a from or. Webster a we Hare it room for the whole of or Webster speech in front of the Revere House especially a it had already been read in the morning papers by every body m the City.

I am As much pleased to see your cheerful satisfied faces As i am to see again the heavens above us and if gentlemen you Are half As glad to see me As i am to meet you there is to to is mom it a great Quantity of happiness and Good feeling in Bowdoin Square. Applause gentlemen a Long and violent convulsion of the elements has passed away and the heavens and the skies smile upon us. There is often an analogy Between occurrences in the natural world and occurrences in the moral and political world and sometimes political agitations pass away bringing after them Sunshine Joy and gladness.

A Iowa. We have daily accounts of Large cumbers of emigrants who Are making their Way at this time to our Young and flourishing state. From accounts we Are led to believe that there will be a greater number of persons come to Settle upon our unoccupied lands this Spring than there Ever has been in any whole year previous. And this we think is owing in a great measure to our contemplated Public works. The spirit of Public improvement which has commenced to show its self in of Borders has cast its shadows a Long distance so that now our contemplated Plank and rail roads Are topics of conversation in Eastern cities. And while we find some who Wold be great men talking about these enterprises As visionary we find that our Eastern capitalists Are conversing All about them with a much Assurance and making their calculations in sharing in their usefulness with As much certainty As though the works were now actually completed. As an evidence of this we take the following from the american upon a paper published at Boston. In speaking of the Central Railroad of Illinois it says this is but an item in the prospective improvements of the great West. The changes to be made in that vast and splendid country within the next ten years Promise to be very important. The resources of that Region will be developed Aifoi Shingle in a Short time and this great railway will be but a continuation of the development now fairly begun within but a very few years Back. A company has been former whose head quarters Are at Dubuque for the immediate commencement of the con Rution of a Railroad in a South Westward la direction to Iowa City and thence South to Keokuk in the Southern Corner of the state and also West to Council Bluff on the Missouri. When this project is married out. There will he a continuous Railroad from Boston an i new York to Council Bluffs and in time to the Pacific the Dubuque and Keokuk company ext act to break ground on their work in May. Two counties have taken about $1.600,-000 of Stock and paid the first instalment. That cite has voted to expend $20, 00, in improving its Harbor and the authorities Are negotiating for the work to be done the present year. The prospects of this e Ifer priv a Are exceedingly flattering and the undertaking cannot hut prove stick Essul and profitable we should Sentinel. Nicaragua. The new Orleans Picayune published several letters from a gentleman of that City who has been spending a few months in the state of Nicaragua. Speaking of Grenada he says it has a population of 30,000 or 40,000. Is prettily situated near the Shore of Lake Nicaragua and in Erv healthy.

Chilly Mcintosh head War chief of the Creek nation a been ordained to the go Pel minis family worship and the cheerful Circle that surrounded the fireside of Farmer Lee after an affectionate a Good night had retired to their respective apartments. The Farmer himself Rose from his chair and carefully covering up the glowing coals which sent fitful Light through the now darkened room was about to retire when a sudden Rush of emotion seamed to overpower him and throwing himself upon the wooden settee which occupied one Corner of the huge Chimney he covered i face with his hands and wept aloud. A father a said a soft voice at his Side a dear father Are you not unwell what can i do for you a a How is this Grace a he answered almost sternly a i thought you were All gone Why Are you still up at this late hour a quot because i could not go to rest while i knew that you were suffering father a she continued a i have watched you and Mother All Day and i know you have some sorrow of heart which you Are hiding from us while it is sinking you to the Earth. May i not know what it is that if i cannot assist i May at least have the privilege of bearing it with you a while she spoke Grace Lee had seated herself on alow Bench at her fathers feet and clasping her hands upon his knee looked up in his face with an expression of Earnest entreaty that might have moved a heart of Stone. But Farmer Leeds heart was made up of no such material. It was full of the milk of human kindness besides he dearly loved the Sweet girl whose Blue eyes were gazing so tenderly into his and had sometimes been tempted to feel a Little proud of his a wild Flower a As the Good minister once called her. He cleared his Throat therefore and fondly passing his hard and Bony hand Over her shining hair said mildly a you Are a Good girl Grace and a Comfort to you parents but this matter is beyond your ability to manage and trouble will come soon enough without meeting it half a ooh do not say so dear father i am almost eighteen and you must not look at me any longer As a child to be petted and cared for but a woman who is both Able and willing to take her share of the burdens it May please god to Lay upon you. Tell me what it is that afflicts you and do not fear that it will make the unhappy i can hear anything but see you miserable while i am ignorant of the a child you know not what you ask arc you prepared to hear that your father is a beggars that we must leave the old Homestead where you were All born and where we have been so Happy a a choking sensation prevented Farmer Lee from proceeding and Grace slowly repeated As if mechanically a leave the old Homestead and for what a Why must we go a a you were a child a her father answered a and do not remember your Uncle bar favorite child who had never seemed so dear to him As now when she was so soon to leave them. The present farm on Beech Hill had been in the Lee family for two generations and they were respected and beloved by ail the inhabitants of the Little town of Meredith in which it was situated. The news flew swiftly that Grace Lee was about to leave Home to go into a factory and in that quiet Community it occasioned quite an excitement. It was not a few years since As common for the daughters of respectable Farmers to enter the Mills for a season As it now is and Grace Lee though a Hardy Mountain Maiden had been so much the household pet that few imagined How much quiet Energy Lay concealed beneath her gentle and lady like Demeanour. A i always knew Pride must have a fall a said miss Priscilla Jones whose envy of our Sweet Grace had been nourished until it had become an absorbing passion and who had hastened to the store of voting or. Dayton to Tell him the news. A Grace Lee has held her head so High that people thought she was the Only girl in Meredith. I wonder what she will say now done to you or. Dayton a the Young merchant Only smiled and said he presumed the whole affair was a mistake but it was nothing to him certainly what any Young lady thought proper to do. But though he affected great indifference on the subject he was fat from feeling it for he admired the wild Flower of Beach Hill More than he would have chosen to confess and his attention had been so marked that neither Grace nor her parents could misunderstand them. But to marry the factory girls this his foolish Pride whispered was not to be thought of so he hastened to the House of Farmer Lee to hear the report contradicted by the lips he loved Best. It cannot be denied that the heart of the Young girl fluttered so wildly at his Entrance that she could hardly speak to bid him Welcome nor that a strange thrill of pain convulsed it As he spoke of his Surprise at hearing the Rumor of her intended departure. But it was with a Calm brow and firm tone that she assured him he had heard Only truth and that she was indeed to leave Home for Lowell perhaps to be absent for some years. There a no mis 1 taking the expression of her lovers face As she Sid this it gave the death blow that she had unconsciously cherished and taught her that henceforth Lewis Dayton must be Here a stranger. After an ineffectual attempt to induce her to relinquish the idea and a few common place remarks about other things he took his departure leaving Grace in a tumult of contending emotions among which gratitude that she had so soon Learned the hollowness of his professions became predominant. A better now than later a said she to herself while the tears of wounded feelings gush speaking without a feeling of deep interest and involuntary admiration. For years had passed away since Grace Lee had become an inhabitant of Lowell a and in that time the mortgages on the a Home farm had been paid off by her and her father now sat in his Aceitu Tomed Nook with the glad consciousness that the inheritance which had descended to him would go Down to his children unencumbered by a single debt. Besides this Philip had been compelled by her sisterly affection to accept of her assistance in his course of study and was now thanks to her generosity a licensed minister looked no to by All who knew him As a Young Man of More than Ordinary Promise. Once a year she visited for a few Short Days the dear spot where her affections were garnered and it always seemed to the household after her departure As if the Sun shone less brightly than usual when they missed the Light of her smile and the music of her voice from their midst. But now the Tanner and his wife were growing old. And could no longer spare her and on the next Sabbath her brother was to preach for the first time in the old Meredith so Grace Lee bade Farewell to the spot endeared to her by Many recollections and at the close of a High summer Day found herself once More a midst her earliest and dear Friend under the paternal roof from which she had so Long been an exile. It was a Happy Circle that surrounded the family altar that night and As the Young Clergyman in a deep Rich voice that trembled with emotion thanked god for the Way in which he had led them and above All. The Safe return of her what pm he had made the messenger of mercy to his father s House. Grace Felt that such a moment More than repaid her for All the sacrifice she had made. A Grace a said a younger brother to her a few Days after her return a emr. Dayton does no to dare to look you in the face though i saw him stealing a glance when he thought no one was observing him. Poor Many his wife is anything but a treasure if report Speaks truth and if he did not sell rum to make Morey he would have to shut up his store. How glad i am that you did not have him but Are you really going to be an old maid a before the Quick Blush that Crim soned the Cheek of our heroine at this simple question had subsided Philip exclaimed with a smile a i must not divulge the secrets of the confessional but if common Fame Speaks truly a certain manufacturer whose wealth is his least re commen Dation is about to visit Beech Hill on a special errand. Our dear Grace has performed her part so admirably in his Mill that he wishes to try her services As a housekeeper is it not so Grace a a never mind a said the fond father who saw her embarrassment a what common Fame says. Hear the voice of experience while i say that the woman who As a daughter and sister has like our own Grace been Dutiful affectionate and self sacrifice icing certainly whatever her station in life May be make a virtuous and excellent not like to deny him. We cur rot i think justly accuse either of doing intentional wrong and one he,4 of Little value. A you May argue no a is Case a too please a replied mrs. Cd a a but he assured of one a what it that asked or. With evident nothing Only neighbor n a who not be at the inconvenience of troubling people for old papers. In about three week after this conversation a was informed by the Post Muster that he had a paper in the it free. A he was highly please at the announcement but he could not think who was id very kind As to Send him a paper. After Many conjectures however he came to the conclusion that it was some Friend whom he had assisted in former years. One year had passed the papers continued to come and Swa still ignorant from whence they came but one Day at a he informed his neighbors of his Good Fortun and expressed some fear that he should have to do without a paper soon. A no you wont a said James c a a in a loud tone a for Mother sent on two dollars More for you last week. A Well done Jim a shouted a dozen voices while a simultaneous Roar of laughter rang along the line of teamsters. N who had previous to this announcement been remarkably cheerful and talkative became suddenly silent while a deep red color the Emblem of shame mantled his brow. This was a Good lesson for Early next morning he went and paid mrs. C the four dollars his error and he was never afterwards known to take less two weekly a peps.

The interest has Bee regularly paid until with in the last four years and i have always hoped to get together enough to pay the principal but some How or other instead loved him so Well that the discovery of his character would have broken my heart. I have now Only to think of my duty to Ray parents and dear dear Philip Lee was two years older than Grace and though an invalid from childhood was a Young Man of uncommon Siren Ali of mind and loveliness of t Harac How to Lead your paper. A John what has become of last weeks paper a enquired mrs. C., of her husband. A surely wife i cannot Tell. It was brought from the office i a yes James brought it Home on saturday evening but neighbor And wife being Here he Laid it on the parlor to Has got the paper. I remember now of lending it to i 1 am very sorry for that. I think you do wrong husband in lending papers before we read them. He who takes a paper and pays for in is certainly entitled to the first perusal of it. I a yes but Asked me to lend it and How could i refuse so kind and obliging a neighbor. I am sure he would lend me his if he took one and i should want to borrow. A done to Take a paper a inquired mrs. With Surprise. a Why not a he is As he says always fond of a yes but he seems to think himself unable to pay for a unable he is certainly As Able As we Are. He pays a much larger tax and he is almost always bragging of his Supe rior cattle and a hush wife it is wrong to speak of our neighbors faults behind their backs. He promised to return the paper a i Hope he will. It contains an Excel a curious fart. Many years ago the senior editor of this paper was informed by his venerable and hereditary Friend Samuel Maverick esq., of Pendleton that when a Bov. As clerk in the House of his Uncle or. William Turpin of Charleston he assisted in packing the first bog of Cotton Ever sent to Liverpool from the United states. Or. Maverick is still living and we now Export some two millions of bags of Cotton every year the Cotton packed by or. Maverick was put up in the seed this was Long before Whitney a invention of the Cotton Gin. The consignee of this Long bag of Cotton the House of Wadsworth amp Turpin that he could not sell it that it was valueless and advised him to Send no More How Little this faithful Factor saw into futurity if any one had said to him that in less than seventy years and during the lifetime of the boy who had packed that very Bale of Cotton millions and millions of bags would be annually sent across the Atlantic for Sale in England and France he would have pronounced him a madman or a food. But it has been done and Cotton has become the great Means by which civilization is to spread Over the Earth. Tho cheapness of Cotton fabrics has taught the Savage to clothe himself and exercise Industry in obtaining the mean of purchasing this Comfort and evidence of civilization. Millions of human beings Are employed in the cultivation of Cotton hundreds of thousands in its manufacture and the whole world a clothed in it. Thi. Too has happened in the lifetime of one Man still living in connection with this matter we will state another fact in relation tothe invention of the Cotton Gin. Some years after the revolutionary War the father of governor Forsyth and some other gentleman who had been in service with general Greene went to pay i widow a visit in the neighbourhood f f Savannah and whilst there were speaking of the value and importance of Cotton if there was any machinery for picking out the seed. Thison ration was then performed entirely by hand. Mrs. Greene immediately said that there was the in her House a Joung Man who seemed to possess great Inch Apical Talent and she had no doubt he could construct some machine for the purpose. Young Whitney was then introduced to the company. He had never a ecu the Cotton Plant but immediately begun to think about the invention. In a Short time he constructed a Model for his Gin but it wanted some Power to throw the Cotton a ginned from the seed.-1ins mrs. Greene herself suggested by using her fan for that purpose. The machine was then completed. Or. Whitney received from South Carolina fifty thousand dollars for his Patent in this state. He spent it it is said in suits brought of we Feutl it a Tatel in the Courrier 4e stats Unis that m. Pierce who at the time of his death via editor of the Siegle newspaper in France had effected on the 1st of june. 1846. An insurance on his life in the sum of fifth thousand franc for the Benefit of heirs. M. P. Paid la insurance an annual Premium of 1,257 francs. From 1846 to i860 he had therefore paid five Premium Arnou tin to 6.285 francs. Thi company have just placed the hands of his heirs the sum of 50,000 francs being for them a net Benefit of 43,715 francs. This fact beside manifesting prudent solicitude in the head of a family Demry no Trats also the Utility of an institution the advantages of which it is to be regretted Are not More generally appreciated.

To Grace particularly who idolized her brother this Hope had become a part of her own existence and she Felt that no Sacri fice was too great no labor too severe to insure its accomplishment. But Philip possessed a portion of her own Independence and she must conceal her plans and i wishes from him or he would have refused to profit by her generous affection. The Day of parting at length came and accompanied by her father Grace Lee left the beloved prime of her childhood Tenter upon the new and untried scenes Grace had remained gazing at him every j that awaited her.

Poor fellow i can do nothing More for him now and he must come Back and try what he can do for the rest of you by keeping school or in some other during her fathers Brief narration Tous neighbor. N.

But she was Young and hopeful and the morning brought happier thought and renewed courage for Wras she not there to help Joe on the disagreeable errand of borrow ing old papers Oil his neighbors. Mrs. Waited patiently during the Day expecting soon to Sec Little Joe coming with the paper but the Day passed As likewise did the evening and quot no paper came.
