Are now negotiating a contract with Carien capitalists for the improvement of the rapid by in vate Means independently Ami in and Atnee of the Aid erf go Ngiem. A a independently and in Advance of the Aid of consequently Good people abroad if you May believe Keokuk there will be no necessity for holding a convention at Burlington none whatever for petitioning Congress for an appropriation this is what we should Call a pretty desperate attempt to a a throw the tub to the whale a a but we think the whale will All we have to say in reply to the above is that letters and papers from St. Louis by mail Are always three to four Days old when they arrive Here never less than three. At the time we write 3d inst the latest St. Louis Dales by mail Are of the 29th ult. Received Here on the 2d inst. There is a Clear loss of Twenty four hours some place we know not where but we know the fact. The amoebic a . Atalic proposes to give a musical entertainment at Hall of the sons of Temperance on tuesday and wednesday evenings next his printed pro know the difference and a a go one Eye on a the rapids any How. Well we May at length Felicitated Keokuk upon having accomplished something and it is probable that we might also Felicitated ourselves at the same time for having compelled her to a a humps herself. As to the improvement contemplated no body will object to it so Long As it shall be carried Forward As a private enter Prue and if the contract shall not prove a conditional one or dependent upon the contingency of a governmental improvement we shall our worthy and very Good neighbors. But this a a contract a even if carried out presents no reason for the abandonment of the improvement by the general government. The or. Ballard of the Iowa City Republican consumes about a column in rounding Hun self up to the admission that he was informed that the rapids convention would not be called on the 15th but on some Day which would not interfere with the Iowa City convention. So far so Good. We pass by the balance until we come to an additional half column wherein the doctor asset rates his Zeal in favor of the improvement of the rapids and winds up by stating that we Are evidently opposed to every improvement in the state which does not embrace Burlington in its interests. It would he useless to reply to such nonsense. We will oily say that in All this matter the doctor As usual is Orer betting himself j. W. Webber esq., county treasure Rand collector gives notice through the Gazette that the assessment books of 1h5i Are now in his Possession and that he his ready to receive taxes. The rapids Are glad to find that our Friend of the Keokuk dispatch is at length convinced that the rapids improvement convention will be held. It is also Gratifying to observe that the opposition which once Rochester sept 19 1851. The races were of an interesting and exciting character. The old Long Island Mare. Lady Suffolk bore off the prize amidst the shouts of the people. She was beaten yesterday by the same Chicago Mare she beat so easily to Dav. The race was a Trot in harness for a purse of four Hundred dollars and the competitors were i Ady Suffolk. Lidy Jane and the stallion St. Lawrence. Before starting lady Jane was the favorite hot there was a remarkable change of opinion after the first heat which lady Suffolk won by three or four lengths making the two Miles in 5 min. 8 Sec. In the second heat she beat lady Jane by a distance and St. Lawrence was badly beaten in both heats. Thus the old Grey Mare maintained her superiority. New York men Are quite proud of her. The second heat was performed in five minutes thirteen second. She never allowed lady Jane to pass her during the entire race. National Highway its navigation a a Ned to threaten us from that Quarter is like River is a should be Safe and free to All our citizens. We want no delays or tolls by reason of dams locks and a one horse canal navigation tolls and delays which would make the Cost and losses not less than they now Are and the navigation entirely dependent upon the Caprice of a private corporation. We would not leave the Trade and Commerce of the country subject to Sny such contingencies and taxes but would make the River the Safe and free Highway of All. It is now quite evident that Keokuk intends to divert if possible the attention of the convention from the great Point in View by thrusting Forward its a a contract and its Peculiar plan of improvement a but it is presumed that i . The common sense of the convention will be equal to the emergency an 1 pursue the Plain path of a sound policy. The improvements de a ired and contemplated Are for the Sake of the whole upper Mississippi. And not for the titular Benefit of any one locality and As it is probable that the delegates present will not All had from Keokuk we indulge he Hope that other matters than in and tuck hydraulics will engage their attention. We think it is also quite Clear that strenuous Effurs s will be made to bamboozle the Topo j graphical Bureau at Washington in order to be 1 cure the services of some inexperienced lieu truant whose us Una May be easily influenced or of some other officer w Hose predilections Are already known to favor the Curtis project. As an off set to such efforts we shall rely upon the sagacity and integrity of the department and j the a dance and activity of our delegation in Congress. We Are entirely willing that Keokuk should have an impartial hearing and a fair fight. 1 when More than these Are attempted in any Quarter some one will be on band to expose the trick. By to be withdrawn. The following from the dispatch certainly indicates a becoming degree of liberality and it affords us pleasure to Transfer it to our columns papers and documents received in a Burlington give signs of Busy preparation for the convention of the 23d. Appropriate circulars of invitation have been sent to aeons of prominent individuals in the different cities Ami villages of the Western slates and other expensive provisions have been made with the prompt Nasf liberality and Good policy characteristic of our indefatigable neighbors. So one really interested in the Progress and Prosperity of the West can fail to commend the alacrity and Energy thus exhibited nor ltd.

The Success of the improvement in Cleveland. Chicago and a Trier cities would seen to warrant its adoption Al where. It recommends itself on the score Economy cleanliness smoothness and durability. As most of our streets remain to be improved the subject it worthy of the consideration of our citizens. The objections to Macada Mizing a re Well known not the least of which is the exp a Cense attending the system. It is fair to presume that Many of our streets would a a a on he improved should a cheaper and better �?T.�5e of improvement be presented.

It up Ean that the writer we in Eye Willex of the Al re advantage of the Plank Over toe a a uni far no therefore his <>�c1umoos deserve from the new York evening Post execution of Aaron b. Stookey. This unfortunate Man was Hung at 4 of clock yesterday in the Yard of the Cifor prison in Centre Street. He had been twice respite and till w Ishin a few Days past it is said entertained the Hope that his sentence would be computed. But w whatever homies he had of the executive ele Muncy vanished yesterday morning and he prepared himself More earnestly for his Entrance to another world. The time appointed for his execution was ten of clock hut on account of some Legal questions which wore involved in the sentence of Carney who was to he executed with him it was put off to the hour above mentioned. When he Learned yesterday that he would be Hung alone he became quite frantic and remained so for half an hour or More when he again recovered his equanimity and prepared i in set i More cooly to meet his Fate. Rev. Or. Camp who has been in frequent attendance upon him since his sentence stayed with hit a great portion of the Day. The scenes presented on the outside of the tombs Lor some hours before the execution was of the most painful and revolting character. About five thousand persons were assembled in Franklin Elm and Centre streets All anxious to obtain a View of the horrid spectacle which was to take place within the Walls of the prison. This crowd was composed mainly of Den mens of the five Points and its Vicinity and their Demeanour was disgusting in the extreme. Among them were a Large proportion of women who seemed As much interested in the tragedy As any of the men. Some cursed and swore terrible oaths Ami bandied jests upon the the officers who could Only with the greatest difficulty prevent them from forcing an Entrance into the prison Yard. Whilst these things were going on outside about ii e Hundred persons including policemen members of the press and several officials of the City government had collected inside the Wall. We heard that Many who had obtained tickets to witness the execution disposed of them for sums varying from one to five dollars each so great was the morbid Lesire of Souie to see a human being executed. We Hope there is no truth in this but believe that it is True As it is a thing of not a frequent occurrence in such cases. A few minutes before the appointed time the doomed Man accompanied by his l tends and relatives. The clergy Man Deputy Sheri Fand others walked from the cell to the place of execution. Here the scaffold w As erected the Sai Neit is said upon which Benson and Douglass were i Pon his arrival Here the sheriff adjusted the rope about his neck Aud informed him that a the time for the fulfilment of his sentence had arrived he was at Liberty to address those present. Stookey whose appearance at this period was As Calm As it could be under the terrible circumstances then spoke As follows in a distinctive and firm tone of voice a my dear fellow creatures i am Here before you to die and Hope to go before my god in a Lew moments. I am sorry to have to Tell you to beware of rum beware of it beware of the rum never touch nor handle it nor let it near you. I am sorry to say i am under the Gallows and i Hope god will have mercy on my soul that is All the Hope i have in this world and i Pray god will look Down on me and receive my at the conclusion of this Brief address. Rev. Or. Camp made an Earnest prayer during which Stookey and his half brother who appeared greatly affected were engaged in Earnest conversation. When Rev. Or. Get o had finished he Shook hands with Stookey and bid him Farewell. At this time the brother of the criminal became so affected by the scene that the officer had to remove him in an almost fainting condition. Indeed the whole appearance of the spectacle was almost revolting and but poorly calculated to impress the assembled person with a favourable idea of the majesty and dignity of the Law. Even the officers themselves had a different look than that of men engaged in the performance of str Many years Agone the Pacha of Egypt made a present to the King of England of Cle Oji Atraz a Needle a a celebrated relic of antique 2�?T but the Cost of bringing it to London Deci cd his majesty to leave the gift where it had stood for so Many Ages.

C. C. Hanley aug i tor and l. A. Whitely. Esq., the Junior editor of Arkansas Banner arising out of a controversy in regard to the Public printing which for some weeks past has been carried on in two of the Public prints of this place.

We regret that the a difference existing Between the original parties has resulted in a a personal difficulty Between themselves and their respective friends. We do not pretend to say who is in fault or to make any comments upon the conduct of those engaged in the affray. A variety of opinion exists in the Public those w to w witnessed the fight give different versions of it and none of them agree in any one thing except that the fight was brisk and the Melee quite sly age.

Kef culican gents a Friend just arrived from below brings the most distressing intelligence from the immediate neighbourhood of residence. It is to the effect that on the 2hth ult., the feast of san Augustin the navajos in a Large body made a descent upon the town of Les Gaval Dones and in the absence of the greater part of its inhabitants who were in attendance at the Celebration of the feast of san Augustin in the Pueblo of Sletta twelve Miles Distant from the scene of disaster succeeded in driving off the entire Stock belonging to that Community Ami horrible to relate killed nine of the citizens and carried off six women and children captives. The individual who brought to me this information was himself present at the town of Sletta upon the arrival of the express communicating the fact and calling upon the people to Arm and go in Pursuit of the Savage invaders. My informant lives within two Miles of the unfortunate town thus attacked Ami 1 have not the least Rea ton to doubt his statement. My own residence is within six Miles of the place. He further informs me that the indians were hovering around the towns of los Lunas Aud los Kemtes both places in full View of my House the entire population Are in a state of intense excitement and dread. The daring nature of this incursion May be imagined when you learn that the attack was made upon a town which with the settlements in a circuit a of five Miles does not number less than 2,0u0 inhabitants this attack is in strict consonance with Indian tactics. Their plan has Ever been to strike their most fatal blows upon the settlements immediately alter the departure of the troops upon a Campaign against them. They calculate very shrewdly that the military Force left in the Garrison at the different posts will be too weak to make a successful Pursuit Ami that the citizens Wilt be less on their guard. Consequently they come into the settlements of the rear of All the troops and have thus far been too fortunate in escaping with impunity.

The crowded state of our columns by reason of continued favors from our advertising friends renders an enlargement of our apace Ohsol utely necessary in order to do Justice to All our patrons. We did not suppose at the outset that such an event would be necessary Short of a year or two but a experience of three months has satisfied us that we cannot Hope to do Justice to our friends without increasing the Diazen tons of our Sheet. This improvement will involve considerable expense and we Hope to be remunerated by an increase patronage. First of All however it is essential that those who Are in arrears with us should step Forth proudly and up. Burlington is taking a fresh Start in the race of cities her course is now sure to be Onward and with increasing Speed. The Telegraph must not and shall not lag behind but it must and shall Continua to reflect the growth and Enterprise of the Metropolis of the upper missis i a i.

This change May not be made until is. December when our first six months will have expired but in View of the closing of navigation it will be advisable to make our arrangements As speedily As possible. It is hoped therefore that our patrons who have an equal interest with ourselves in All that relates to the Success of Bur Lin tonian Enterprise will very cheerfully walk up to the Mark and Supply us with the requisite a said and of a the Keokuk dispatch is still apprehensive that the rapids convention May not come off. How sorry Keokuk would be in such an event the dispatch qualifies Many of its speculations with a i the convention should be held a a. Now if the dispatch has any doubt about the matter let it examine the St. Lous papers the very papers of All others which the dispatch would wish to put on a a a cold perhaps the i Patch can make a Little More St. Louis capital by reporting the fact that our Railroad is now already contracted for. As that paper has been in the habit of holding up similar arguments in order to Dampen the ardor of the people of St. Louis reason by the Way which St Louis regards in an entirely different Light the dispatch will Confer a favor on us and on the rapids also by a a passing it round a that Burlington has secured the bulling of a rail Road from the Mississippi to connect with the Eastern lines and the lakes of the North. Should this fact fail to satisfy St. Louis that it is not necessary for her to move in the Apuls improvement it May at least have the effect to satisfy her that if she do not move she May As Well hang up her fiddle.
