By Morgan amp my Kenny. Burlington Iowa saturday september 20, 1851. Vol. 2�?no, 7. I a a Pree Erye tour equanimity. Hemmer t impress gives us the above advice in an article which appeared in that paper on the 9tb, commenting on our a of the 4th mat. This i Good advice and we have no other fault to find with it than that we do not happen to require anything of the sort. Oar equanimity has not recently been in the slightest degree disturbed. It a a we Are Happy to say a rather difficult matter to make any inroads upon our Good temper and snore especially a this the Case when railroads Are the topic under consideration. We Are at such times impregnable to any assaults. We have a due appreciation of the motives in which they originate and As we Are constantly expecting them we Are Only disappointed Wien like a a spirits from the vasty deep a they do not come. Our own opinions upon railroads in Iowa a were fully made up some time since. We Are As every body knows the Earnest advocates of such improvements and As we have been so we shall continue to be. That we shall have them and Many of them before a great number of Vears Roll by we consider beyond All question. If we have said a particular scheme was and is impracticable it was because we bad Good reason to think so. That opinion has not been changed or modified. On the contrary it is constantly receiving confirmations As Well from new fact which Are daily elicited As from the voice of the press and the people. The express itself if we under Send it begin to lean in the right direction and we Are now entertaining some Hopes that eventually it will find itself line a and give us its efficient Aid in pushing Forward a system of improvement which will be As honorable to our state As advantageous to our citizens. We have often said that our opposition to the Dubuque scheme of a Road to Keokuk did not grow out of any feeling of hostility to that City the express is Correct when it says that Dubuque and Burlington have no reason to be envious of each other. It is not Only True of these two but likewise of ail the other cities on the River. This is one of the great and important facts we have Long been endeavouring to establish and we Are glad that upon this Point the express has at least adopted a practical and sensible opinion. It is unimportant How Emulous we May be of each other or How earnestly we strive each to surpass the rest. We do not complain of this for we look upon it As right and proper but we Are anxious to have something like a a fair play a and think it would be to the Mutual advantage of All to use their Best exertions to secure it. It is apparent to our mind that rail roads running Westward in our state will prove profitable much sooner than any running North and South and throwing aside the fact that the latter will Cost at least double what the former will we could not but believe that the roads we have before suggested Are the roads which the people of fhe mate and every part of it Are in Media Lily interested in constructing. We not Only believe it to be their interest but we will venture to affirm that every one of them will be built. Necessity will Call for them. The demands of the Interior Are daily becoming More urgent and eventually they must be heeded and complied with. We have no w ish to set any portion of the limited capital in the state unprofitable invested. Dubuque will soon have a rail Road connection with the East and the moment that connection is consummated she will find experimentally that the next object in importance to her will be a communication West. If at that time it should turn out that she has exhausted her energies upon useless schemes of what Avail will it be to her that the cities of the cast Are open to her when she cannot possibly derive any Benefit from it in consequence other own w ant of forecast ? As to our Grants of lands being Defeated because w e ask too much it is less Likely to occur than if we ask for such Grants As Are deemed undesirable by a Large portion of the people of fhe slate. We think the whole can be obtained As easily As part. At All events looking upon the subject in its proper Light we think the Grant of land to the old line would certainly prove a a a advantageous to every one beside the few who May live upon it or who May be Able to appropriate the profits of the construction of the Road to themselves. For our own part we would not take the land upon a contract to build equip and run cars upon the Road for any term of years. It will not pay. And As we firmly believe this we will avoid it ourselves and we will Endeavor to induce All including Dubuque herself to avoid any connection with it. If you will have roads run them West. Let us All do so whether we wish it or not Westward they must go. As to the rest of the article we Are noticing we can to exactly say whether it was intended to be complimentary or ironical we done to precisely understand a the humor of whether the one or the other is not very important to the Public though in either Case we shall be compelled to consider it unanswerable. If intended to be complimentary however we must be permitted to say that it is much More than we put in any claim for much More than our merits can Challenge. Mississippi Louisville Junr Aal of the 6th. Says a a we have returns from More than one half of the state and every coun to with the exception of three has Given Large Union new court first Stone of the new court House in Cincinnati was Laid on the 1st inst., the papers of that City say it will be the a most magnificent Temple of Justice Ever erected in the United for Kwaii report is said to be current in Paris that m. Cab wot representative of Paris will probably be the Republican candidate for president. A of the Georgia Banner has placed the name of jambs Buchanan of Pennsylvania for president and Howell Cobb for vice president. In 1852, at the head of its columns subject to the decision of the National convention. The Michigan Chicago journal of the 8th, inst., mentions As a matter of news that the a summing up in the trial of the Railroad conspiracy Case had commenced. Or. Seward was to proceed with Bis argument for the defence and was to be followed by or. Van Dyke who closes the Case. Probably they will get through by chrismas. Indian Iowa Republican publishes three Indian treaties which have been ratified by the president Viz with the Utah the Sarajo and Wyandot tribes. More Friend Paul of the reporter says he has not seen the Donald ton correspond coct done to know or. Greer never wrote him a letter and is decidedly in favor of Gen. Cat for the next democratic candidate for the presidency. Here is what he says of the correspondence we Are even advised by the Burlington Telegraph that we Are made to figure therein As a correspondent of or. Greer we Are unacquainted with any i individual and have had no Corriejon Donee with k be has an existence nor can we relieve those who Are in doubt whether or not the whole thing is a a my we doubt however whether any person could obtain a place on the National democratic committee what had not discretion enough to keep his wares out of the venal columns of the n. Y. Herald. Fall observe that our merchants Are now rapidly receiving their fall and Winter stocks of goods and if we May form an opinion from the a a signs external a we should suppose that the importations this fall will be larger than Ever Belore and consist of every thing desirable in this Region of country. There Are now a larger number of dealers in our City than we have Ever had Ard most of them have or will have Large stocks of Well assorted goods All of which we can assure our Reader be purchased As cheaply and on hot a Xueting Letim As in any place West of the Mississippi. We speak by the card and can easily convince any one anxious to make purchases that such is the fact. Dealers in the a Opatry Lyme West or South of Burlington May be confident that if they come Here for goods they will not Only find plenty of them but As cheap As they can desire. Our merchants they a til find to be Liberal and accommodating anxious to sell and that at very Small Advance upon Cost red anything can be procured Here from a a team engine to the finest lace. This a the Market for All to make their purchases in and if a Dicks make Little or nothing no one else can complain. Daniel a meeting of the whigs of Boston held some two weeks since for the purpose of choosing delegates to the Springfield convention the following resold Lution was unanimously adopted resolved As the sense of this meeting that should the question of the nomination of a candidate for the presidency be brought before the convention proposed to be held at Springfield that our Delegate be instructed to advocate and insist upon the dupe rior merits and claims of the Hon. I Muniel Webster to that distinguished station above All others and to assert fearless it a it a , that he is it re eminently the first Choice of the whigs of Boston and As we believe of a Large majority of the people of the state and. Further that until it May be ruled by National convention hereafter to be Holden that another Man is the preferable candidate of the great whig party of the nation we the whig of this Dis trial will go for Daniel Webster in preference to All of we Are indebted to fhe officers of the Steamer Danube for late St. Louis papers.

We think they had better be a Tittle More cautious in their manner of speaking of Jovest two violent showers passed Over this City yesterday morning one about half past twelve and the other after the various congregations of the City had assembled for morning services. There were a number of specimens of artillery firing that startled some people from their proprieties. The Way the Thunder or something else Shook the lightning out of the Clouds like tangled skeins of sunlight that it w Ould have puzzled she of the distaff to unwind to a Marvel. During the first storm St. James Church was visited with a slight a touch ethereal a sustaining. However but Little injury. While the Reyz Active congregations were assembled in the first presbyterian and first Baptist churches they received a Loving visit but the conductors prevented Auy serious injury. There was some starting and a Little blanching of Cheeky that could Blauche nothing Jour. It the Loui Tolu journal gives the following not very flattering biography of Gen. Lopez Lopez was a native of Venezuela. In his youth he fought under Bis father Gen. Lopez on the Side of the patriots against the spaniards in the War carried on in his native country. Gen. Lopez was taken prisoner by the spaniards and executed the next Day. Young Lopez thinking that this looked a Little inauspicious deserted the Patriot cause joined the spaniards his Fate in a murders almost immediately after the murder and fought on the Side of the royalists against the patriots throughout the rest of the War. In that War he distinguished himself by his personal bravery and was promoted to a rank of some importance. At the end of the War he went to Spain and fought on the site of Koy airy re Ruai country. was afterwards sent by spam to Cuba with an appointment to a civil office where he married a lady of Fortune spent All her Fortune at a cock pit and at last finding himself out of Money and out of Power he conceived the desperate project of enriching himself by getting up a rebellion and revolution in Cuba and All Bis movements in the United states during the last few years of his infamous career were directed to that scheme of self interest and self aggrandisement. It appears that the expeditions from this country against the Spanish authorities in Cuba Are creating some sensation to Europe. The London times and other London papers express a Strong doubt whether the British government would permit Cuba to fall into the hands of the United states. There is no doubt that the u. Government to the extent of its Power will prevent any infraction in the cuban affairs of its own Laws the Law of nations or the Laith of treat ies. It will not however in any part of its action recognize the right of great Britain to interfere at All. If Cuba no matter by w Bat Means shall be revolutionized and if the question shall then arise of her annexation to the edited states of if such a question even without her being revolutionized our National authorities will consider it and decide it Foi themselves without the slightest reference to British ��11-let great Britain undertake to prescribe what arrangements the United states May make or May not Inako either with the authorities of Spain or the auth Oil ties of revolutionized Cuba and she will be met with the sternest Defiance and if necessary with Lou. Jour. J Cardinal for the last foreign news it is stated that the Pope is about to make some new cardinals among which is the a archbishop of Philadelphia a this evidently refers to or. Kendrick the Learned roman Catholic Bisbon of Philadelphia and thus the friends of archbishop Hughes who have been expecting due Honor for him Art disa ppm ted. The foreign item says the Pope was to have pro rioted to the dignity of cardinals at the nex consistory. The archbishops of Munich Philadelphia the pontifical Nuncio at Vienna and the minister of the Interior monsignor Iavelli. Tim promotion however is to be postponed until november. Another Fillius Tab Are no sooner out of one difficulty caused by the disposition of our citizens to interfere with the government and property of another coun try than we Are Likely to run into another. The cuban expedition for the last month has absorb everything else and even attracted the attention of an invading party of fill int ering americans from what seemed to be a less attractive adventure but now that the Enterprise has failed they will probably return to their original project. We understand from a source w Inch leads us to give it implicit credence that for some time Pat a number of americans have been concentrating upon the Rio Grande near fort Brown to assist in an attempt to revolt ionize the state of Tamaulipas Mexico. At the last account they numbered some 300 men ready for the expedition and were waiting the signal from Carravajal a rioted fre Booter in that state for years past and Well remembered for his depredations upon Small parties of american troops in that part of Mexico during the last War. was to have taken the Lead in a pronoun Cimmento and the revolution of Tamaulipas and the Filli Buskeros from Texas were to invade the territory and to Aid in the establishment of the new government. As we have said the Prospect of a revolution in Cuba under the Flag of Lopez diverted the attention of our to to Hulipas patriots and we recollect that one of the accounts for the new Orleans papers stated that about three Hundred men bad congregated about Mustang Island waiting the arrival of a vessel to take them to Cuba. They did not go however arid now the old expedition will be no doubt revived. There Are Many men in this country who Are disposed to engage in any Enterprise rather than to do hard work and hence it is that expeditions of this kind Are so popular. Other men profit by them in various ways in furnishing supplies steamers ac., in fitting out expeditions at enormous profits and in picking up All the spare change which is to be found among such a number of men collected together. One would think that the very name of the fre Booter who is to take the Lead in the Tamaulipas expedition would be sufficiently repulsive to deter any american from engaging in such an Enterprise but it is quite certain that it is not. We Hope that the government already probably advised of this foray will take the most decisive measures to Dis Zierse those engaged in . Rep.

Death or gov. cannot permit the death of this distinguished orator profound statesman and exemplary Christian to pass with a Mere nonce As communicated by Telegraph. A had Long held a High position among the prominent statesman of the old Dominion in the convention w hich formed the Constitution o. Virginia in 1830, he grappled with the master minds of that body in favor of the great principle of gradual emancipation. was afterwards governor from his native District in the Valley of the Shenandoah. was the Only Man in Congress after the death of or. Adams who commanded the undivided and Universal attention of the House in debate. His speeches were always Replete with patriotism and buning eloquence which always produced a deep and lasting . St ate Sentinel. Deep sea Maury of the National Observatory read a paper before the american association on deep sea soundings. slated that there were now under our system Over one thousand navigators in All parts of the world making observations on the temperature the depth the currents and various other Phenomena pertaining to the Ocean. The great difficulty in making deep soundings was not to get the Lead to the Bottom but to get it up. This had been easily obviate by substituting a twine of the thickness of Ordinary whip Cord for the Strong line formerly used. It is fastened to a Lead weighing 120 pounds and when the Mariner commences to haul upon it the line Breaks where it is fastened at the Lead and its length gives the depth of the locality w Here the sounding is made. It the berries of Boston like the wags of the same ilk must be very queer ones for not Long since we were informed that the Best Black berries in that Vicinity were those that were while and now we learn from the Pott that the buckle berries of Boston Are so Large that Only takes a pint and a half of them to make quart. Rapids convention at Burlington october neat. The vast importance to the whole Valley of the upper Mississippi of the Early improvement of the rapids is becoming too Manifest longer to escape general attention. Whatever we May think of rail roads or however much we May appreciate their advantages still the unobstructed navigation of the Mississippi bordering As it does upon so Many states and traversing so extensive a Region of country must continue to commend itself As the first and leading object of interest to the whole people of the far West. Particular sections and Here and there a prominent Point May feel that they have much at stake in the completion of their rail Road enterprises but All sections All cities and All persons within the great Valley Are directly and largely interested in the improvement of this great Highway of the nation. The subject Bas been brought freshly to mind by the suggestions of citizens of St. Louis Ith Many of whom we have conversed within a few Days past and who urge the calling of an improvement convention at Burlington in october next to be composed of delegates from Missouri Illinois Iowa Wisconsin and Minnesota. As the time is Short in which to secure the co of ration of Wisconsin and Minnesota we would respectfully recommend to our citizens to hold a meeting on this or to Morrow evening at farthest with a View to the fixing a time of the convention and for the appointment of appropriate committees a. Our St. Louis friends say they will come up fifty or a Hundred Strong and it is to be hoped that All the Points Inte ested on either Side of the River from so. Louis to St. Paul will Manifest a like spirit of Zeal and determination in the matter. Let All these states speak As one voice and Congress cannot turn a deaf ear to our just demands. Let All these states together and the great w Ork will be surely and speedily accomplished. A demonstration such As these states by a Union of Effort Are capable of making such As their greatest interests imperatively demand that they should make will at once arrest the Public attention abroad and create such an impression upon the Public mind As will secure for the proposition the character it deserves a National one and worthy of the immediate and favourable consideration of the government. Then for the Sake of every state concerned and for the Sake of the Best interests of every Man woman and child within their respective limits let this demonstration be made and let it be such an one As shall speak Forth the Power the influence the numbers and the talents of this great Ley. The people above the rapids we mean the Farmers mechanics and Labouring men in particular Are annually taxed in the Way of extra frights with five to ten times As much As would make the desired improvement and yet so feeble and disjointed have been their efforts that for ten Long years Congress has passed the matter by in silence either because doubting the extent of he grievance complained of or not caring for the isolated and slender petitions seut Forward. But there is now an Opportunity presented to bring the question Home with Power and proper effect and it is to be hoped that every town and every Section interested will take immediate Steps to have themselves fully and ably represented. It is no Idle estimate to say that the people residing above the i rapids annually pay extra freights on account of obstructions to the amount of at least two millions of our own City and county As Bas been ascertained by the books of our merchants and other business men annually pays Between $200,000 and $300,000 extra tax on merchandise delivered and on products sent Forward by reason of the obstructions in the rapids. Burlington alone then is annually taxed a sum quite sufficient to improve both the rapids and this tax she has patiently paid for ten years past. Shall we not make a becoming Effort to rid ourselves of this enormous evil the poor Farmers Are shaved on both sides the evil to them is a two edged sword compelling them to pay extra on All they consume and compelling a reduction in the Price of their products. These Are facts within the knowledge of us All and occurring daily among us and what is True of Burlington and Des Moines county is equally True i a proportionate degree of every other town an. County above the lower rapids. It is therefore time that the people should if they would Ever rid themselves of this incubus upon their Industry. The present would seem to be an auspicious moment should not be permitted to pass unimproved. St. Louis is at last not Only willing but eager to co operate with us. Illinois and Wisconsin Are equally interested and will doubtless lend a Hearty hand in carrying Forward the great measure. Let there be no faltering then on the part of Iowa but let every Man take up the question As the one nearest his heart and identified with his Best Hopes and the unobstructed navigation of the whole Mississippi from the Belize to the Falls of St. Anthony will soon come to be regarded As the great work of the Day and its achievement will Mark the commencement of an unexampled Prosperity among our people. Let every Man enlist himself in the cause let him go in for a a during the War a a and let him take no Steps backward until All Congress shall surrender. In Short and in a language which All understand a a keep the Ball rolling a an absence of two weeks from his Post the editor again has the pleasure of making his respects to the readers of the Telegraph. is Happy to inform them that he brought a very Fine Shower of rain with him which has been liberally dispensed among them to their Mutual Good and Comfort and All which is the result of a fortnights bottling up Joe Wonest a. .0 la in i ltd a the death of this it a ltd Titi i or Baleful serried 11., Only repel 1 a that he zen.

At the time of his decease he was a member of the supreme court of the u. S., an office the duty of which he discharged with great credit to himself and usefulness to the country. Judge Woodbury was Long associated in the Cabinet of Gen. Jackson first As Secretary of the Cabinet and afterwards As Secretary of the Treasury and has for a great number of years had great influence in the councils of the democratic party. It is not our purpose to give anything like a biography of the illustrious individual. Whose untimely demise we announce and deplore. That duty no doubt will he ably performed by some one More intimately acquainted with the Decea ted and the details of i Public career. The death of such a Man is a nations . Lon it Timet sept.

Free Tom is the a a Manifest destiny of the whole of the new world and of a smart Chance of the old and the enlightened and progressive spirit of the age will Ere Long find Means of so forming treaties and framing enactments As to admit of a decent expression of sympathy if nothing More. Strange to say the political press is so taken up with president making and so concerned about turning Sharp Corners that the shooting imprisoning and transporting of several Hundred americans cannot be openly and Impi Grantly denounced As an outrage upon humanity lest it offend the ears polite of certain coteries or embroil the incongruous sections of a particular party who Are expected to vote for the same Man for president. At present and As indicative of our individual sentiments we have Only this to say the duty of government and the rights of individuals Are two very different matters. While treaty obligations should be religiously enforced the dictates of humanity should not be entirely forgotten.

Martin p. Tipper. A Bury August 4th, 1851. Robert Beasiey Popa. The last number of the Iowa Sentinel contains the following obituary notice of or. Pope lately one of its editors whose decease we noticed a few Days since it becomes our sad and melancholy duty to chronicle the demise of Robert b. death has dropped the curtain which separates him forever from time. A a he has gone to his Long Home and the mourners go about the Robert Bently love was born on the 0th of june 1h23. In his Early years he gave evidence of More than Ordinary Energy and Force of character. In 1837 he became an apprentice to the printing business under the venerable Pike now conductor of the Kentucky Flag. Durr g the time he remained with his preceptor he became thoroughly conversant with the general routine of business belonging to Bis profession to which his Dill Igent application enabled him to add a a perfect practical knowledge of the business. Besides Bis faithful attention to his daily labors or. P. Became during this period a hard student. True his studies and course of Reading were very desultory having no other guide than his own judgment and inclination but the information which he was enabled to acquire was precisely of that Kiml most needed Lor the practical purposes of life. After his apprenticeship terminated in connection with a or. Watters he established the gospel Herald at . soon abandoned this business and entered upon the publication of a sprightly democratic paper at Springfield Ohio. Soon afterwards the mexican War arose when he repaired to Cincinnati Ohio and joined a corps of volunteers. was elected Lieten ant in capt. Henry a company of the 2d Ohio regiment and a in that capacity served through the Campaign. was in several skirmishes though in but two actual engagements. After the conclusion of the War be returned from Mexico Ami in 1840 became joint proprietor of the Sentinel. His course and conduct since a resident of our Village Are too Well and favourably known to claim any comment from us. 44 none knew him but to love him none named him but to the harmonies and beauties of Bis Domestic life belong to his family As sacred recollections. We cannot there intrude. But participating in their sorrows we offer them the expression of our a merest sympathy under their deep Afflic Tion. The disease which terminated his existence the flux he undoubtedly acquired in Mexico. had had frequent attacks of it previous to the fatal one. Which seized him on the 26th of August last but not of a very serious or malignant Type.

Letter irom Hon. J. Phelps late u. Senator from Vermont has made its appearance. It is dated the 4th inst., and is addressed to the Hon. Lucius b. Peck who recently declined the free soil nomination for governor of Vermont. The letter reviews the fugitive slave Law its constitutionality and the action of Vermont on those questions with great earnestness. The writer says of the constitutionality of the i never entertained a doubt. It is but the Echo of the Constitution itself. It May be modified it May require modification in some particulars but the modifications lie within the ran a of legislative discretion and a difference of opinion in relation to them affects not the question of constitutionality. It would be difficult to carry out the provision of the Constitution without a Law substantially like the one in question. The main purpose of the the surrender of the fugitive is demanded by the Constitution itself the Mode and manner is left to legislative provision. If there be anything objectionable in that the remedy is by Appeal to legislative discretion not by resistance to the Law. It appears to me that we have but one alternative a either to carry out tha Law or repudiate the Constitution. The letter is quite Long. A mercantile convention is to be held at Richmond va., to Day. Great eclat it is said will be be Given to it. Invitations were sent to gov. Morehead and senator Mangum of North Carolina to l. W.
