Mard May have forgotten the assurances Given a or. This subject but those who gave them Bember All about them and they have carried Tea out accordingly. We past by for the present the gratuitous quot Lings at Burlington a Small potato practise of several of the country press but unworthy the adoption of a Central Organ. The Case even at the worst was not so bad As to warrant this unlocked for Anu unwonted Conder Macri on the part of the Republican. State Organ should soar above the foibles of the Maroon Herd Aid the aristocracy of our one Kurse Capitol should scorn to mix inn with tax fighting biting and gouging population of the River towns.

We happen to Enow just when Ami where the thing was started. A certain Abrew Little Fel Tow. Wh., held the dem Ferary on the hip last Winter i Tarand Thena which Herr was be pleaded although he Pahita he nothing but a harmless Little inoffensive Simul paper was recently in the City of St. Louie at the same time we were and during his stay w immediately after he left the St. Louis papers a a tend on the Roh Jeet whig Democrat and Neutral and we do not know but the German paper joined in too. Bit Lillie fellow who wishes to have a Peri eel Radii of Kail rims in a born with their leu at lies Momy and the Radii resting upon the Hanks of the Mitsuo Ippu took passage after he had aroused the natives for a certain flourishing Sod pleasant a a Little vill Mik a As the people of Keokuk Eal lit which May be found about 40 Miles above a a the Haring safely arrived at Home we next see the Little paper wiped almost full of a sex Tum my two.

Now b a do this thing la in to the of needs of the two railroads spoken of ? does any my m his a eases believe that the present move for a Woven Ion at Kurling Tomii would have been made if no surent hat Iowa City had been talked a if or railed we Are infinitely obliged to the Republican far the Honor which it would Thi Usta upon us a hut have to regret that it is All Gammon Wither wrote nor dictated the articles Refe Jle it is True that we urged upon i Tizy. Putich Early the editors of St. Louis of of taking Steps for the the Steamboat explosion. Steamer James Jackson blew up near Shawnee Tomm on the 21st inst killing and wounding 35 persons. The boat was literally torn to pieces and her boilers mashed rat. Dubuque rail publish from the Herald an encouraging article on the subject of the Dubuque rail Road. The people of that City Are moving with commendable Energy and deserve the Success which is Likely to Crown their efforts. We also observe by the Herald that the county judge has been petitioned to submit to the people of the county the propriety of subscribing $100,000 Stock. The question is has the county judge authority to do so we should be rejoiced to learn that he has and if so the numerous improvements and especially Plank Road now projected within our state will no longer be permitted to a drag their slow lengths along a a but will be taken up and up bed through by that invincible Power the popular voice. If the worthy county judge of Dubuque shall find any a Bority for Theu preces Lent in which labor he has our Best prayers he can not Only Lake our hat but our boots also and further we Promise them that several shares in their rail Road shall be taken in Burlington a by the same facial a Raics and Hydraulic pressure. A it is said that an ingenious a Varmint a who Burrows somewhere on the half Breed tract has invented for the Especial Benefit of those concerned a set of steel Springs which by a a Hydraulic a pressure and Are intended to assist in the elongation or contraction As the Case May be of the a a human face the gentleman with the awful countenance who edit one of the papers dose that Way happened to a try on one of the a a machines a the other Day just As the River commenced rising when the work of elongation suddenly progressed to suck an extent that be could not disengage himself from the instrument and As the water continues to Rise the a a pressure goes ahead putting our poor Friend through at a tearful rate. As the Waters recede and the pressure becomes a Small by degrees and beautifully less a the Spring gradually contract until the countenance spread out in a Broad fat Grin thus the invention is a decidedly useful indicating to navigators and others the precise depth of water to be found at any time of Dav or night upon the lower rapid.

The present grand sire of the order Robert a. Griffin of Savannah ga., delivered an eloquent valedictory on retiring from office. The following glowing extracts cannot fail to be interesting to that Large portion of the Tribune a readers who Are affiliated with this numerous fraternity a a one generation ago a prophets Eye might have pierced the dark and heavy folds of the curtain which separated the a pioneers of the order from the Days in which we live but a prophets Eye revealing in the glow of inspiration the enacted history of that intervening time would have fallen upon mocking ears. From the Pinnacle on which we stand the retreating shadows of the events which prophecy would Nave predicted Are dimly visible. The bubbling Spring has expanded into the Rushing the Piggy company has swollen into the giant army. The bending sapling has flourished into the anchored Oak. The rough foundation stones proudly Bear up the towering Marble. The Humble instrumentality of Man has been used my Brothers to bring about the splendid results upon which you look with such admiring affection. But it becomes us always and More especially on these occasions of solemn reunion to Lay the tribute of our fervent gratitude at the foot of that throne whose almighty occupant has nourished our weakness into strength and suffered us from such Small beginnings to increase into so great a Community. And with our thank offerings let us Send up to our great and Good father our earn a St petitions gushing warm from t a heart that his protecting Arm May never be withdrawn but that in his All Wise councils it May be ordained that our beloved order shall go on from Good work to Good a Woik prospering and to Prosper. I cannot take leave of you without a few words of fraternal counsel. The times in which we Are times of restless motion. The age to which we belong is the transition age. The foundations of society Are heaving upward. Science is peopling the Earth with new creations. Art is Disi terring her cold grim Antiquity is giving up its buried lore. The fair features of the Youthful present Are wrinkling with struggles to bring Back All the conquests of the ancient past. The old Law of Progress Lias been re enacted Antis sweeping the a it it old. The glorious contagion you yourselves have , my Brothers. Your honorable ambition stimulates you to Advance further and yet further the Standard of our order. Go it Speed you in the Good work but i beseech you make haste slowly. Make your fire glow with seven fold heat and submit All proffered Gold in the fierce trial of the Crucible. Remember in your heart of hearts that All changes Are not Reform and that All movement is not Progress. Chain Down with Adamant that portion of your legacy that has passed the ordeal. Scatter to the winds whatever your judgment deliberately yes even painfully matured shall report to you As worthless. But in All coming fiume guard Well those great features of our time coi secrate ltd institution which have their Beauty and integrity through All mutations of circumstance and Fortune. And As the parting admonition of one whose counsels derive in pm a trance chiefly from the position which you have assigned to their author but in the solemn language of the inspired King 1 charge you a remove not the ancient landmarks which your fathers have it is one not of the least interesting events of the grand sirens administration that during his term the new York controversy Winch almost threatened the perpetuity of the order in that state were happily adjusted so that he can retire a a rejoicing in that most grateful of All spectacles the spectacle of a vast band of Brothers dwelling together in the grand officers for the ensuing term were installed this morning.

The Hail Road meeting on saturday last was held according to appointment at the methodist Church. In Point of numbers considering the object it was about the poorest apology for a meeting of the people that we have Ever attended and As a demonstration of Public spirit a reproach to the whole county. We have never had our Faith shaken until the present and seeing the apathy and in difference if not the hostility of those who Are most deeply interested we could almost wish that the whole Enterprise and every interest to be affected by it might sink beyond the reach of every resurrecting Power. The Plain truth May As Well be told first As last the Only Hope of saving the Road is in voting the sum required. This our citizens will be called upon to do the amount to be Advance i in whole or in part in the discretion of the City Council. The decision of the question rests with the people at Large. There Are Many among us of Large Means whose co operation is desirable and whose timely assistance would insure the completion of the work. Their intelligence and 1heir interests have been appealed to time and again and it is much to be regretted that they cannot or will not see the importance of the work in the Light in which it has so often been i scented. It is not too late yet for a a sober second suppose this work should be abandoned entirely what then becomes of the Good name of Burlington what becomes of its Trade what of the advances which have already taken place in the value of real estate ? it would be better far better for the interests of All that there should be but one feeling on this subject that Union and Harmony should prevail among our citizens and that forgetting every unworthy resentment All should come together and Lay their shoulders to the wheel for the common Good. Will they not do so ? or must the people again be called upon to vote this Road through if so every vote thus cast will be to some extent a vote of censure upon the apathy or opposition of those who failed or refused to come Forward such votes it is True will he cast with reluctance for every Inan is generous enough to presume that others have reasons satisfactory to themselves for their conduct a hut self defence is the first Law of nature and the people if they must will vote to save themselves. There has been some dissatisfaction expressed Here relative to commencing the work at peo where comparatively a mail subscriptions have been made. The object in View in asking for additional subscriptions Here was to obviate this objection by putting the Irole route under contract. Had our citizens come Forward As i hoped tins would have been done forthwith. And it will yet be done so soon As the required amount shall be voted. Of r merchants have commenced receiving their fall supplies and country dealers could not do better perhaps than to make their purchases in Burlington. Our wholesale business has been rapidly increasing for some time past and our merchant have made provisions accordingly. It is no a a Art of our business to know anything about dry goods groceries hardware boots and shoes Iron drugs a.c., but we Are assured by those in whom we have Confidence that the Burlington Market offers inducements of a Superior character to purchasers either wholesale or retail. One thing we do know there Are Large stocks on hand and heavy shipments on the Way. The weather has been Clear and for several Days past. Fires Are comfortable morning and evening.

The removal of these obstruction to the navigation of the great River is a matter of most vital importance to the people of the state of Iowa and its speedy accomplish meet should engage Earnest unremitting attention.

We harped upon this subject Many years ago a convention was at length held in this place but nothing was affected. It is now proposed by the St. Louis Prev it that a convention be Hehl at Burlington to take decisive measures relative to this important subject. It is not too late and if the Effort be unanimous among the states most interested a Congress May be induced the approaching session to make an appropriation that will enable us to so improve the rapids As will make them navigable for the larger class of upper Mississippi steamers at the lowest stage of Davenport .

Committees of Corres Mience were appointed and Missouri Illinois Minnesota and Iowa specially invited to Send delegates to it. By a separate Resolution the chamber of Commerce of 8t. Louis was also invited to be present. The attendance upon this convention will be. We have no doubt very numerous and we suggest that measures ought soon to be taken to ensure the attendance of a Large delegation from St. Loui. This City has a direct interest in the improvement in questions a greater interest perhaps than any place below the the mayor of this City deemed a the subject of so a non moment As to justify him in referring to it in a recent Corres a Indence with the mayor of new Orleans urging it upon the consideration of a convention to be held there in january next. A convention of the states Immes lately interested held in a state which is most familiar with the subject and with the plans suggested for the removal of the obstructions May be of direct Benefit in securing the co operation of the Southern convention. At All events St. Louis must have a Strong delegation in the convention and must take an Active part in its . Republican. A Arliagton Aad it. Plea Saal Plank read. The directors of this Road have called the first Semi annual meeting of the Stock Homie is to Convene at the court House in Fairfield on wednesday the first Day of october next. The work under the supervision of the present energetic Ami persevering Board of directors has been pushed ahead with a Speed almost i paralleled particularly so when we take into consideration the Small amount of Means the directors have bad at their disposal with which to operate. The Road has mostly been put under contract for grading excavating Ami building and the contractors Are driving everything along with a perseverance creditable to themselves and the work. It is highly necessary that the Stock holders should come up to the work and Bear their portions of the arduous labors necessary in the undertaking and completing of an Enterprise of this character and Benefit and t is to be hoped that there will be a general turn out of every person holding Stock in this company at its first Semi annual meeting. Business of no Ordinary importance is to be transacted and of course every Stock Holder will be interested and consequently should be the a re. We look upon this t it Tuia y Hora Tiff sep Scaler 90.

A it beg leave to Call the attention of the above named gentlemen to the fact that the demonstrations All along the River and even in the Interior towns implicate that the people Are aroused to the importance of the immediate improvement of the rapids and that an unusually Large convention will assemble Here on the 23d. In View of this fact it is incumbent upon our citizens to make such arrangements a May be due both to the occasion Ami our own character for hospitality. Our numerous and Omro odium Are More or is crowded hence visitors should not be left entirely dependent upon such Haneas for lodging Ami other accommodation. Pains should therefore be taken in Advance to provide amply for the emergency by obtaining the names of such of oui citizens As can and will throw open their doors on the occasion. Our citizens one and Alt owe it to themselves to be prepared to extend every hospitality within their reach and there should be no end to the private entertainments which it is hoped will distinguish the event. In a word every arrangement should be on a scale to correspond with the character and number of the persons present and the character which we would wish to sustain for ourselves. Another fact not to be lost sight of is the importance of having prepared a statement showing the amount and description of our Trade and Commerce the amount of merchandise and material tor manufactures brought annually among us the amount of our manufactures and the amount of our shipments. A commit the for this purpose not having been appointed the com Mitte of arrangements it is hoped May consider the labor As coming within the Range of their As the most important period in the history of the Road. It now requires More exertion on duties either by appointing a sub committee part of the members of the company to make it from their own members or otherwise As they succeed than Ever and to falter arid hesitate at this time would be to abandon the Enterprise. Stock holders should individually be present if they desire to know the Progress and prospects of the Road.

It i from reports it shall be ascertained that not enough Stock is subscribe to Complete the Road i let the members.

By the arrival of the Schooner old fellow from the Ladrone islands we have received an account of the a store of the Captain and part of his Crew by the natives of a Small is land known a my cos Kelly a belonging to the piety of obeying it. Group of the Law drones. The particulars were Writt ii for us and subscribed of by or. George Dawson who was Sec Oil officer under command of capt. Luce. The occurrence mentioned took place on the 17th of january last. The ski Erin whaler boy. Of Yvo Arren r. I., arrived off the Island of my Roskell and was boar died by two men in a Canoe who m reply to a demand for provisions informed capt. Luce master of the ship that the Island Only afforded Green Turtle and the natives were hostile to strangers advising him not to capt. L., however ordered a by at to be got in readiness and calling for volunteers was joined by four of his Crew and accompanied by one of the strangers who were sailors and had been stopped on the Island for two years. He gave orders to the first officer to Send a boat for him in the morning and pulled ashore. The ship Lay off and on and the next morning a boat was sent for the Captain in which a the other stranger Aud also two natives who had paddled off to the ship. On nearing the Shore the natives assembled on the Beach refusing to allow the boat to land. They were armed with a a ears and beckoned a heir comrades to join them from the boat which they did. The Sailor resident wa9 then about to follow when one of the natives warned him to remain in the boat. They refused to hold any communication whatever with he Crew Anu or. Dawson who went in command of the boat rejoined tiie ship Ami related his adventures. Or. Merry first officer then provided the a hips Crew with arms and the boat was again sent ashore under a White Flag. The men Lay on their oars within a cables length of the Beach where the native continued to assemble armed with Spears and threatening an attack it an attempt was made to land. Joseph Percy the companion of the Sailor w to accompanied the Captain ashore the revious evening endeavoured to gain some particulars from the natives concerning the Fate of the Captain and party but was refused All information and having stated his belief to the second officer that they had been killed by the natives a fire a opened upon them irom the boat. The Relief party continued outside the reef until the signal from the ship recalled them. Or. Merry waited until dark off the is Laud when receiving no tidings from the unfortunate party he bore off for ascension. The names of the a Eamen who landed with capt. Luce were James Mack a James Sweeney by m. Taylor and Edward lion. There is no doubt that the whole party were massacred by the natives who perhaps suspected from the absence of their two Comrade on Board the vessel during the night that they had been killed or detained As californian.

These suggestions Are made at the request of one of the Coroi Ottee and a it is presumed that a meeting of the committee will soon be called the name have been re published in order to facilitate that event.

Whatever difference of opinion May exist As to the policy of a Law none should exist As to the pro so far As we Hare heard the Law will meet with no resistance in this Community but on the contrary will be implicitly observed. The friends of the Law could ask for nothing More its enemies and it is resumed there Are such could not pursue a More prudent or commendable course.

A tax on the time and patience or Public the penalties of greatness is that of being perpetually asked to Public banquets Ami dinners. The first thing that the managers of a popular affair of this kind do after having secured the room flags music. Ac., is to advertise a dozen of distinguished citizens As a part of the show literally As Decoy ducks to catch the Flats.
