The chamber of Commerce of St. Louis it will be seen have appointed a Large and talented delegation to the rapids convention. £3tlie River i again rising slowly now in first rate navigable order. It is telegraphed for the St. Louis press. May Villa ky., oct 7. A serious affair occurred this morning Between rapid improvement. We make the following extinct from a practical communication Imon the subject contained in a recent number of the Galena Gazette a a in relation to the canal plan suggested by the writer in the intelligencer f3j Lee says the construction of an artificial Channel along the Wisconsin Iowa Shore proposed by capt. Shreve in his report in 1836, has Many a vantages. But from the information derived from the Survey it is found that it would require an sex Ruble. . Brolli Erol Hon.

Mcelrath is fifty five tear old. The affair is greatly deplored by All a they both being highly respectable citizens near neighbors. 6, p. K. Rapid. around the All the paper As Well As All the people on the upper Mississippi excepting those of Keokuk tit opposed to improving the rapids by Means of a canal Aud this opposition is being umber a ally and in some instances almost vehemently a a pressed. Keokuk May thank her press Foi this outpouring of Public a Euti ment. The papers of that place have insisted with so Muc Pertinacity upon this fancy Stock scheme of improvement As to make it odious log in a Vance of the convention and to determine All intelligent minds in favor of the old plan and not Only so but of making that plan the ground work of the memorial to Congress. We bad that the convention would be co tent hoped to state the facts relative to the nature of the impediments and the detriment to our Commerce by reason of their the continued Effort of the Keokuk press to prejudice the Public mind abroad have forced the question into Sich form that its consideration by the convention Lias now become inevitable. The convention was called in the first in stance to take Steps for the improvement of the it and it is expected that it efforts will be confined to that object and not directed to the coup iteration at any particular length of a visionary system of hydraulics. I heir object will be to secure the removal of existing obstructions and not to the building of additional woes. It will add nothing to the Public convenience or Economy to leave one obstruction of the right in order to encounter a greater one to the left. If we want obstructions for the Novelty of the thing or to give Keokuk the Benefit of accidents and other Low water favors we have them already free of Cost hence there i no necessity for expending a million of dollars to erect additional ones. What we All want and what the claims of Commerce require is the free and Unin erupted navigation of Ike River. And not the navigation of a canal with its end Lem delays and its army of toll gatherer a policy which would entail forever a most onerous tax upon the Commerce of the whole Valley while it would ofter All the delays already experienced. Again the improvement is sought for the Benefit of All the people of the upper Mississippi and not for the special interests of any particular locality. Passing by the present with ail its important interest and looking to the future w Hen millions of people will be added to our numbers the idea of a canal becomes strikingly insignificant compared with the Vari purposes which it would be called upon to serve. A generation which would not be laughed at by its successors will Ever avoid the extreme of Folly and hence we opine the future Trade and Commerce of this immense Valley will not be left to seek an out let through the locks and dams of a narrow canal.

As the general has been looked upon As the Mam prop of secession in the Southwest we give the most important part of his communication entire. It is addressed to the democratic state rights party of Mississippi. A the result of the recent elections Lor the convention however brought about must be regarded at last Lor the present As decisive of the position of the state in the great issues involved. The majority have declared that they Are Content with the late aggressive measures of Congress and opposed to any remedial action by the state. Although this determination of the people is at variance with my fixed opinion of the True policy of the state heretofore expressed and still conscientiously entertained yet As a state rights Man and a Democrat i Bowin respectful submission to the apparent will of the people. It is True the state has not yet poker authoritatively even the acts of the convention w ill not be binding until they shall have been ratified by a vote of the people but by the election of non resisters to the convention a majority of the people have declared against the course or policy on the slavery questions w hich i deemed it my duty to pursue while governor and against the principles upon which i was nominated and upon w hich alone i had consented to run As a monday morning oct.

The is a ted that this invention is now perfected yellow the Only color wanted having been obtained. Zeal of Keokuk in Beha f of the improvement of the rapids Lias never to our knowledge extended above that place. Were there no other guides to knowledge than the papers of that City the would w Ould live and die in ignorance of the fact that thiere were inv other rapids than the lower ones or and other settlement than nip and tuck. Me hear every Day of their anxiety to improve the lower Apuls by digging a to us race from Montrose to Keokuk but not one word about the improvement of the upper rapid s. We regret the fact which compels a thu to notice the Short com tags of our neighbors but if they will persist in exposing their hand they mud expect to lose vow Gam. Their fault has been in the vain attempt to Force the impression that there was no place but Keokuk. Enveloping themselves in Clouds of Gas whose impenetrable foils Cir urn i cubed their vision to rather narrow limits they fancied that the a a balance of Mankind were looking through the same glasses and seeing Only the same a instead of playing out the part of the a a game cock a and getting up by times in the morning they would seem rather to have consulted the habits of the Ostrich which is said to tiek its head in the Sand to avoid detection. Keokuk has a run herself into la ground a with similar Wisdom. A the papiers of that place insist that a Here is no Mode of improving the lower rapids but to Cru them will they please be so Good As to Seiji then the people North As to the Best Mode of improving the upper rapids ? the a it eople of that Region would a a like to As the fall is about equal at both rapids it would never to to let Keokuk monopolize All the u in Xirau 6 the attempt to Naturalize american Prairie hens and quails in this country has failed.

Perhaps Napoleon a similitude of a Wasp might he objected to inasmuch As the insect is noted for an acerbic a of disposition and j an impetuosity of venom quite annoying to those who happen to be its victims but As for the buzzing propensity the Gad about Fly away Peru a Bridge to the Friend of the Keokuk dispatch desires an expression of opinion from the Burlington press As to whether it would be exit Edie it for the forthcoming convention to petition Congress Lor an appropriation to build a Bridge across the Mississippi at Keokuk. Our opinion is simply this first that the improvement of the rapids is a matter of so much More importance to everybody than any other project now thought of that All influences should be concentrated upon that one object secondly that our neighbors of Keokuk Are but throwing away their powder in their Many efforts to divert the Public mind from the great interest in View.

The americans have made their railroads improved their sugar cultivation and not Only set the example but breathed the ideas of self government. We support Spain in the maintain Ance of her military absolutism and the exclusion of natives Ami creoles from every Trust every Freedom every emolument. The liberals of Cuba look no longer to a but to America. Perhaps the creoles Are too far gone in hatred to Spain Ever to be recalled to loyalty towards it. Still Spain has it in her Power to Call to her Aid the negro population.

Y. Herald says a a the newspapers from London have made a great fuss about the discovery of Gold mines in Australia. The managers of that affair which has been put into shares have issued the most hum bugging prospectus and sent Many agents on the continent to Eulist miners and workmen of All grades to Send them to this new California. Till now. These emissaries have not succeeded in their enlistment and but Lew Frenchi Neu have swallowed the bait. It is said in Paris that this discovery is a made up affair which has no truth in it and cannot be accounted for. We All know that Australia is a half deserted country that it is be ides the re Gium of All the con its of England Ami this is not very enticing for Laborera. No doubt the same game will be tried in the United states. Yankees beware a Sandwich following is the address to the native population of the Sandwich islands by the legislature lately prorogued a a a deep sleep of indolence and vice Eeme to have fallen upon you and the truth cannot and ought not to be concealed that unless you arouse from this lethargy you nut �0011 perish from the face of the Earth. Foreigners multiply White natives decrease. And wherefore certainly there is a reason and we apprehend it is to be found in your unfortunate Home and your indolent irregular and licentious habits. We a Wak plainly for we feel deeply. Forsake your vagrant habits cultivate your lands build Good Bouses and keep them dry and clean he Faithf in to your wives educate your children and the tide of destruction will he stemmed. Go on in the course you Are pursuing and soon no fur her legislation Foi the hawaiian race will be in vain you will present to the world the sad spectacle of a nation sinking to the grave without an Effort to Avert its foal to rms a i Ike upper la a us Apfl cd Tare at Thia City. Attention a called to the article in another portion of this paper from the Rock Island advertiser beaded a a the coat Banks. In View of the fact that with All our manufactories and other improvements which Are contemplated among us so important a matter is a Coal said is unknown to our Trade we Hare deemed it High time to Call Public attention to the subject. To say nothing of the amount of fuel require for private purposes an immense Quantity i now annually consumed by our manufacturing establishments and the tax by reason of the increasing demand the Scarcity of Wood and its increased Price is rapidly becoming a serious consideration with All. The several steam flouring and saw Mills the foundry the ferry boat and our extensive Park packing establishments distilleries breweries lard Oil factories ac., to say nothing of smaller manufacturing establishments and our numerous hotels annually consume thousands upon thousands of cords of Wood the purposes of which could be better supplied and at much cheaper rates by the Coal Banks of Davenport and Rock Island provided a or mar of our enterprising citizens should take the matter in band and establish an extensive Coal Yard such an one As would Supply the wants of the whole City. The fact would also have much to do in determining the establishment of Many other branches of manufactures among us the vast importance of which to the rapid growth and Prosperity of a City is too Well known to require comment. For illustration we have Only to look at Cincinnati which May be said to owe All its greatness to its manufactures and coming nearer Home we have on to look at St. Louts for further confirmation a City which has quadrupled its population within ten years past and since manufactures were introduced As a Branch of its pursuits. We must follow the examples before us if we would Avail ourselves of similar advantages. The prices at which Coal can be obtained at the Banks and the prices at which it can be retailed at this place certainly form inducements sufficient to warrant the Enterprise. A certainty already exists for the Sale of a Large amount enough to justify investment and attention and there is nothing inner certain than that the article would by degrees come into Universal use among us. In fact the growing Scarcity of Timber and its rapidly enhancing value must sooner or later compel a resort to Coal As a fuel for general purposes and in looking Forward to the future As the country becomes More densely settled As rail roads traverse the Northwest in All directions and As our steamers multiply upon our Waters the Coal Trade of the upper Mississippi must become a leading interest giving employment to thousands of persons rerun rating an immense capital and furnishing the main Spring to Many branches of Industry. Tin it mail the press of the slate generally appears to have received the Greet a Keokuk sews with mingled feeling of Mirthful is a a i con fed about half of them regard it As a a her attempt j it to hoax All of them unite in denouncing u a i on unworthy trick to up up to misled the Public sentiment and to frustrate the Pic eel tugs of the proposed rapid convention. Fortunately Lor tit groot interests at stake the Absurdity of the scheme is already Well a thief stood far and near and by the time the convention shall assemble Keokuk will probably be glad the find that she has a 44 contract a such As it is rather than a convention or a Congress to depend upon.
