After his banishment to St. Helena and his faithful Friend count de Montho Loi. The conversation was published not Long wince Iri a foreign journal. It is so Well authenticated and so interesting in itself that we next Spring. The Era also says that it has not it been determined whether Burlington Muscatine will be selected As the depot that depending upon the proportion of interest manifested in the Enterprise by the rest it Active places named. It will be remembered that we took occasion Early list Spring to urge the expediency of this policy upon the people residing in the principal towns on those Rivers As Well As upon our own citizen. Whether Burlington shall reap any Benefit from the arrangement not we have the Satin action to know that others while of the first importance to the Trade and Commerce of those Beautiful and Fertile Valley it will greatly facilitate the settlement of that portion of the state and whatever Goe to the Wos All around for the target go.

Jesus is not a philosopher for his proofs Are Miracle and from the first his disciples adored Iii. In fact learning and philosophy Are of no use to salvation and Jesu came into the world to reveal the mysteries of heaven and the Law of the spirit. A a Alexandar. Cesar Charlemagne Ami in self founded empires but on what foundations did we rest the creations of our Genima upon Force. Jesua Christ alone formed his Empire upon Loe and at this hour millions of men would die for him. / a it was not a Dav a Battle that achieved when sixty a boys got their Stream on f Griess the Triumph of the Christian religion in the hell know who s got the strongest play world. No it was a Long War a contest for Bat i refre1iebmble. We notice with equal Surprise and regret that the St. Louis titles entertains suspicions that the late rapids convention at this City was managed was sought to be managed by whig Here present that portion of it which relates be i a a a a Ders for party purposes and that its resolves in,-.�., a. Men a said j and other proceedings have a squinting towards j whig Gery in general. The times is mistaken As to the facts utterly mistaken and its speculations and inferences Are a once unjust and Ridic a a _ 1 Ulous. Were our space sufficient we should of words action unknown before. Jesus take pleasure in publishing the times article in borrowed nothing from our i Owle Ige. He 1 exhibited in himself a perfect example of his Christ to our readers a i know Napoleon a a and i Tell you Jesus is not a Man the religion of Christ is a mystery which subsists by its own Force and proceeds from a mind which is not a human mind. We find in it marked individuality which originated a train Back in the general Prosperity their own interests and we presume in solicited in a proper spirit they would be As prompt and As Liberal on this As on former occasions. But if the Iowa City is to be taken As the Index of popular feeling and its abusive epithets the language current at the Callol it is not Likely that a mint Stock arrangement could by very readily effected. We Trust however that that paper is the Organ merely of personal spleen rather than that of an enlightened and Liberal sentiment. In so leaking of the importance of securing the navigation of the River by steamers and of select is depot for Trade the lit publican says it Voll be observed that the Kra suggest my eating Barling a a me the depot on the Mississippi for this Trade which fut will doth Shmu towards the Buela in the Trade.

We publish the above to show the spirit of the journal from which it is taken. Words would be wasted in refuting the sayings of a maniac. It is enough to say that so tar As Burlington is concerned every allegation is absurdly false. Instead of being Oppio Cito the Prosperity and growth of every portion of the Iowa sad Cedar valleys. Burlington was the first Point to the state to wove in the matter of this very Enterprise our own were the first to ragged the reasons now urged by this same re pay Titan for procuring a learners for the regular Trade of these two Rivers the thu graph originated and urged the measures and never for a moment Lias it failed to do its duty in this regard.

Roes this look like a a selfishness a on the part of Bolington does it indicate a disposition to a a mar the Rosie to Ity of Iowa City a any other City the Plain truth in. There Are jealousies and Liepart burnings among political leaders of both parties and from these facts result Many of the a a grateful flings and false accusations brought against this place. We state the last As it is sad without Widling to mix ourself up with this part of the squabble we beg the people Here and everywhere to Bear this fact in mind to Moke a distinction Between the private piques of politicians and the Liberal sentiments of great Public who look to the general Good As Well As to the private Prosperity of individuals. Let Tli-111 separate the chaff from the wheat Aud Ore a Hall have plenty of boats plenty of Trade plenty of Money and plenty of Good feeling among the productive useful and enterprising Das a and plenty of Prosperity 111 All our town and cities. We have deemed it necessary to say thus Bitch in order that Burlington May be vindicated against tfx a misrepresentations of an until twined reckless Prev a.

Owe Wiio Kins with no. 60. A literary 11 id. From Ouri Republican. The by a Linton Ion Vertio. We devote a very Laige portion of our space this morning to a full re Piort of the proceedings of the Burlington convention held last week and composed of delegates from four states and one territory. This convention has attracted More than usual attention. It was some time in contemplation and civic Ted All along the line re of the River a marked interest. Even in this City where we Are proverbially remarkable for indifference to All occasions of this Kin i an unusual degree of interest was manifested by the citizens and a delegation of great number and representing All classes of society attended and participated in the Delibera ions. Ori Many accounts we have been Gra Tilie with this interest and the Awakening spirit Winch it brought with three centuries begun by the apostles then continued by the flood of Christian generations. In this War. All the King and potentates of the Earth were on one Side on the other i see no army but a mysterious Force some men scattered Here and there in All parts of the world and who have no other rallying Point than a common Faith in the mystery of the Cross. 1 die before my time and inv body will be Given Back to the Earth. To become food for the Worms. Such is the late of him who has been called the great Napoleon. What an Abs a a Between my deep mystery and the kingdom of Christ which 1 proclaimed loved and adored and which is extending Over the whole Earth. Call you this dying is it not living rather the death of Christ is the death of a Napoleon stopped at the last words but Gen. Bertrand making no re in the emperor added a a if you do not perceive that Jesus Christ is god. Then i did wrong to appoint Vou . Y. Evangelist. Fall in order that our Home Reader who were Eye witnesses to every proceeding of the convention might see to what length a ridiculous suspicion May Home Imes carry the Over cred Lou. As it is. We think a Brief extract Wilt be sufficient of show that the time if not hard up for expedients to justify past political offences i at Leo get exceedingly sensitive in the matter of its democracy. That paper tips a tue rapids whig a Din lans never permit an Opportunity to a mss to enforce their Peculiar views of constitutional e re traction and contribute to the Success of their party schemes. The t Hiya go Convent by and i the Memphis convention were remarkable Illust ions of this Petty and unpatriotic propensity. Thov were ended irrespective of party the people indeed were at the Start that it was thru Busine a and that the politicians should be la bed into doing a thing to important to their insureds and yet. When these conventions assembled no roue was left in a turned to Indue Ethem to take positions distasteful to convention contrib a de. H. W. Starr Esq., of Burlington a loudly called for and addressed the convention at some length. He was not be said a professional speech maker except for practical ends. He could not Ahause them like Dandy Jack at the circus but he Felt in a measure bound to respond to to the re Elution just passed complimentary to the City of his residence especially As he had Learned that his name had Onee been called during his absence. He congratulated the convention sincerely upon the results of their sittings and the unanimity w Ith which they Haj been attained Araf he was triad that they a i passed such resolutions. He had thought much on the improvement of the rapids and had Only been amazed at the want a it of action on the subject Beu they considered the amount of navigable water that passed Over those Rock and the sources from which it was supplied the Iowa River the St. Peters the St. Croix and others whose names were familiar to them it seemed strange that they bad so Long been silent. It might he asked who was to the democratic a try Ami Adverse to their repeated 1 j deet ration it it of constitutional principles and every distinguished statesman of that party who did not a use suib to the of tha Manoo Terer. Was denounced As an enemy of the people and of Western . In like manner we find the m big Mana j Ere devising methods of so managing the late con vent my at Burlington As to redound to the. Advantage of the whig party exclusively and to our a astonishment no one was there to denounce the in j Trigue and to hold the authors of it up to the scorn of the the editors of the times As far is they were known could be guessed at were politely invited to be present it was earnestly hoped that they would attend a and considering their preconceived opinions a to the tendencies of such gatherings and with the experience of the Memphis and Chicago Convent is before them mrs.

It unquestionably had a very Happy effect j 4ried�?better things in anticipation and All upon the determination of the a mention be cjasse4 looking Forward for the return of Olden cause the delegates from the other sections had Jimes. Satisfactory proof that we were in Earnest in political excitement was wry great and in our support of the proposed improvement. Per steam 0j being allayed Afler the election , if Sonal meter Couit a a Between the delegates also anything increased. Of the most important measure of the West. And it i sincerely to be hoped if it will not see fit to retrace its step that at least others will not be so forgetful of propriety and common end a As to follow in it it Wake. The ground work of attack upon the convention by the times appear to be found in a the Lefter of . , the new senator from i Missouri and a whig. Without going at All in to the Merit of that letter the opinion i therein avowed we will Only say that it was addressed to the convention and was not an emanation of that body and the convention i re More respond Ible for the views expressed in j that letter than is the times for the election of the author . Geyer to the v. S. Senate nor if report be True half so much of but this is neither Here nor there. We have nothing to do with politics at present and Vve should j be very glad to see the times get itself out of a bad scrape provided it will do so without tramping upon the toes of third persons. Other senators a democrats too pure and undefiled had dressed the same convention both in person and by letter yet no whig print has been so shameless so devoid of reason As to find fault with the convention on that score. The justification if justification it could be called would be As Strong in the one Case As in the in fact now that the subject is brought up and a the names of the officers , managers and getters up of the convention occur to us we find that democrats so far As number Mav blame but he preferred to let by gone be by gone. One reason however. Be would assign lie thought that the difficulties in the Way bad Beeti overrated a in , in the papers and in the Cor mention itself. The reason of this he could not understand but he thought it certainly True. In 183<i lieutenant now col. Lee had carefully surveyed the rapids with a View to their improvement had located the Channel for the whole 12 Miles and had sounded diagonally across the River Twenty five time he had found that for fully two thirds of the distance there was no Bottom at 10 feet. These results were sat Down at the a a me and coaids he seen. What , was the trouble Way the water itself had Cut a Channel through the rocks Man was now too Lazy to continue the work. The difficulty consisted in the course of the Channel which was winding and abrupt w Ith Sharp Corners of Rock that must be blown off. They All knew that near Nashville the Channel turned almost in a right Angle through which it was hard for a boat to go without striking one Side the other and this was the whole amount of the difficulties. Titiev had been talking about appropriating $llftu�?~0jxx tor this work. There were men Velea would und Artaki to Pei Lurin it tor of duo and give Good Security Lor the contract and do it As Well As the a a Cincinnati they bad been fooled by talk about dams and so Forth the very idea was an insult to old fatties Mississippi. They must Hare a navigation free to All. The truth was we were too proud to admit in this country that there was anything we could not to. He referred to Canada a id the vast works of similar character constructed there by the British government at an immense exit Eise and which Revei returned one per rent on their Cost nor were expected to. The canal alone Cost a million and yet we held our hands Content with the action of Congress about this River to which the St. Lawrence was but a Mill Stream. Yet that canal was but a Smalt part of the Public works carried on by the j British government in canals there were j others on which millions Sterling has been spent for no return whatever. Why could not our i government do something for us it was great i to the governments interest for the lands on these Waters were they not even now a source j was an important Brar of Revenue Why then government be Lor Idle when we asked for what conduced to it interest no less than our own but we should ask it As a right and not on our Knees. The great object of this convention should be to compel All our representatives to pull to a Gerber this was the condition of effecting anything when this was secured there would be no trouble and no obstacle. Hitherto every log roiling Bill had cramped us and when there were Ingle rapid. Within ten years the population of the state had increased one Hundred and forty nine thousand souls and where a this increase greatest North of the Iowa River and North of the two . Look too at Minnesota. What wait live year ago. When the Davenport convention was held and what a h now then a few inhabitants were thinly a catered Ove a a a Here and there upon the mines the weary traveler might Chance upon a farmhouse where he could find rest at night now to those praties and still North of them a great a Nie of immigration sets in front the eat of the lakes pm so my by Southern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois on its Way. The memorial under consideration suggested to Congress that the improvement Delored would enhance the value of tue Public land. He would state i the treaty made but the other Day at the traverse de were ratified forty firs million of acres would be added to the Public Domain and up in the Region where the head Waters of the Iowa intermingle with those of the do Moines surveys were now going on and near Flie head water of the Cedar River and other be ides which would Mark out the limits of farms soon to be occupied. And to Send an abut a taut produce to swell our Trade. He a proud to meet the delegation from St. I Vui a a Hose who spoke for the Mother and the sister City of i own Region. He ardently desired that her Union with them might he it separable. But unless they come up like in and Call upon their representative at Washington to do their part it Roux not last. What were the facts the City of Milwaukee within eighteen months Hail sent the Iron horse fifty Miles on i Way to the Mississippi by the first of january Chicago would have Laid eighty Miles of track a Lue West. In Illinois the capitalists of new York and Boston had undertaken to Lay Down six Hundred and ninety nine Miles of Railroad East and North and South trom which they boast that a hey will draw a profit of fifteen millions and yet St. Louis would not hitherto stand Forth and assert her rigid. A Toast Given at the social meeting of the night before had thrilled him to i heart when it brought before him the honoured name of in re rec. A countryman of his. Now Moul dered in the far off soil of the North West marked by no Monument a ave the rude memorial a few to Send a i placed Over him should the communities to whom these names were a common a arrest and Pride now be severed it eloquently proclaimed on the preceding afternoon Itiat the in a a on of great missis Ippi was not to the Indian tribes. These two men Hail come first to receive that Mission the Bone of one now reposed at duh none. Of the other far in the sunny sooth. And should Vve now see this great National Highway which they discovered pose through our timidity and sloth from us it magnificent Commerce fall into Ether hat la no exclaimed the speaker we Are All Western men and we know that you sympathize with us and feel that our interest Are the same we a a you to rally to our aids to urge on your representatives to do for you and us and Vve shall n t fear to see the a a a Rou House Quot quench his thirst in the Waters of our it at River. Capitalists might build then Road but water was the cheapest route and must be the Highway after All. He referred again to Minnesota its lumber Inte ies by of it resources and it vast supplies of lumber the Mississippi was the Only Outie. Yet senator Chase of Ohio at the lust seas on of Congre had pro posed a giant of land to build a Railroad from Milwaukee to St. Paul a and an appropriation to unite the Fox and Wisconsin River. What was the object of this measure to draw off this very Trade in lumber and if not anticipated that object would ire effected. He Hom a the convention would on the memo appropriations they were not definitely fur this Rul before it. He cordially responded to the sentiment of the resolutions and thought there purpose but place in the hand of the Engineer department to he us eel anywhere. As to the Mouth of the River which had been mentioned be thought it in eed important to not of the first importance provided t by could get without difficulty to St. Louis. Be he approve of the measure and True tei that St. Louis and new Orleans would unite with the upper country to carry it How was it that ten years ago had been obtained with out difficulty Lor there rapid and thigh when the work was begun Only it a lays remained before the ice appeared when no Man Kroushl be found to go into the River and continue it even in that Short time much was accomplished. The next year the w Ork w As dropped though $ 10,000 t still remained untouched and the very tools and boat procured at great expense the year before were sold at auction. . Starr Laid before the convention the following statement j which was read by the Secretary a Owr. The undersigned being now and having Long been engaged As practical navigator on the Mississippi River and it eing familiar with the Channel of said River across the dts Moines and Rock River rapid and with the True character of the obstructions to the navigation at those Point unite in expressing a be opinion that these do not Arie it pm the Scarcity of water a Low stages of much As from the crooked and winding track of the Channel and the projecting posits of Rock the sides of the same and in the bed of the River. We further unite in the opinion that the navigation May b a i ily an 1 cheaply Safe and Avail table at All stage of water by could he no constitutional difficulty raised. But the resolutions alone be deemed insufficient the memorial went to the Root of the matter and he earnestly hoped it would pass Wili the name unanimity. Louisville oct. 27.

Understanding human tact is practically better than Talent of to possess a knowledge of human Narine i in Many vocations the great secret of Succes.

Burtnette a death in Bernalillo county of which you have made publication already had not ceased to be the topic of conversation m All the towns Aud revenge was strongly spoken of.

Another recent i Gru Coful affair has tended still More to exasperate tin americans and while the company were making preparations to tart with the mail much talk of repaying in their own Coin was everywhere heard. The affair of which 1 so Cak is the death of Wilum Skinner Esq. I regret that such i it the Burden of my information at this time for he w As a respectable intelligent and worthy Young Man amt one who in a fair Way to make him sell you Weot in his profession in that country. The manner in which he came to his death a for As i can learn was this Skinner and Armijo had a few Days previous and preach As among other plans the opposing Par the great Central so acts of this Valley Are no to Boa obtained he presence of a most notorious prize fighter on purpose to annoy the preacher personally.

The convention at Burlington was not Only a numerous but it was in All re jets an intelligent and highly re a it be body. There were Manv men of note from the respective state and All engaged heartily in the work. It was to to expected in an assemblage of so Many men that there would not be entire Luri Nony of opinion but these conflicting views were a Ltd courteously expressed As to give no cause of of Enre and the consequence was that the determination of the convention was realized with almost entire unanimity. Both in the convention and during the stay of the delegation in the City there was a remarkable display of Good feeling and rejoicing and men who came together for the first time and As �0augers, separated with w Arm regard to for each other. On the part of the people of Burlington there a an unbounded hospitality extended to the members of the convention and the compliment pan to them a wet fizz he had intended to interrupt so Complete a by the convention was richly deserved.

Where these disturbances will Stop it is than whigs had but in common Justice to All we think we May safely say that politics Par Tzisin never entered the mind heart of any one in connection with the proceedings purposes of the convention. The members came together As fellow citizens of the same great Valley Ami with a common object in View. They j came together inspired by sentiments which Rose above personal party prejudice and with purposes Superior to the pastry Aims of Mere politicians. They met in frankness and Good Wilt upon a common platform that of a National in Erri a the to operated with cordiality and in Good Faith i giving form and impetus to the great work and we Aie sure they separated upon terms of Mutual respect and Friendship and with an enthusiasm in favor of the improvement which w ill induce them to look v.
