Quot Quot the Cross is the following ideas were suggested to my mind by a Friend reciting a passage in a speech delivered at a Wesleyan missionary meeting a by or. , of Sheffield. The passage alluded to was founded on an Eastern opinion that As Midnight passes the or Constellation in the heavens called Quot the Cross Quot inclines towards the Earth. Or. D. Took occasion to apply it in a Verj Beautiful manner to the state of the Heathen world showing that there Are various indications of the Midnight of heathenism having passed the Cross becoming More conspicuous through the instrumentality of missionary labor or to carry out the figure Quot bending towards while i acknowledge the source whence i obtained the idea i must remark i have taken the Liberty of applying in an experimental tie a traveler in Eastern climes remark i Nave Laren Ine Ciuci by it to Ink Lulu Way to the various circumstances of tie Christian. Ruseti has course o or deserts dreary his Way he knew not nor the time of night and he was faint and weary. He turned him to the moslem guide and asked the hour the Sistis port ending Quot be of Good cheer Quot the Turk replied for Midnight s past a the Cross is and am i not a traveler too o or deserts drear my course pursuing. Till i the Quot better country Quot View and mount above Earth s burning ruin ? and have i not a guide to Tell the hour while Onward i am tending a in deepest gloom to cry Quot the Cross is bending Quot o yes a a i still am travelling on i when conscious of my nature s guilt my soul feels bowed beneath a rom Earth to heaven my pathway steering. With scarce a Star to gaze upon no sound of Comfort Ever hearing save when my soul s Quot True Ligid Quot i see. And hear is voice from heaven descending Quot hold on thy Way and Trust in me thy Midnight s past the Cross is where or i turn my Eye abroad. And see a world in satan lying the Wise by Wisdom know not god the foolish in their Folly dying a my heart is pained and bleeds to see Man s fallen race to ruin tending till Faith believing prophecy. Cries Quot Midnight s past a the Cross is bending when earthly cares my breast invade and Cloud my anxious brow with sorrow i cling to Hope but half afraid to think upon the coming mom i turn me to my heavenly guide and on his counsel still depending Trust in his love am satisfied that Quot Midnight s past the Cross is bending. Quot when forced to part from those most dear and roam o or Earth a hapless stranger life s numerous ills alone to Bear inured to toil and pain and danger when unbelief cries out Quot give up the fight a t to All in vain contending Quot Jesus Sweet voice inspires the Hope that Midnight s past the Cross is which obstruct the Trace from Index in dance would not be met with at All in Point from . And finally to cause such a route would leave those notoriously adroit and impudent , the Kansas , to far to the loft that the danger of having property and Stock stolen by them would in a great measure Bee shaped. There is another Branch of the Oregon Road that leaves St. Joseph to. But from the great Bond it is obliged to to make to the South in order to avoid the difficult nil hints of the Nemaha and to arrive at the present intersection of the Independence Trace which is below tie crossing of the Blue River it subjects those who go upon it to a great Deal of unnecessary travel. It would be a Sieving of much time and distance wore they to rendezvous at Weston a Only Twenty Miles of a and Start from there likewise. Heretofore no direct Road has been marked out from fort Leavenworth Westward to the most suitable Point where it should fall in to the one already made from Independence but Titis year the commanding officer intends to take the column through the very route recommended. And certainly wherever we can go with our heavy wagons the emigrants could follow with theirs. Monday May i9lh, 1845. The faintest possible cob web of Light had been Woven Over the Eastern sky and the chances were Verj doubtful whether a Day or a night would be caught in it when our ten Stout butlers decided the Point by arousing us All from our slumbers with their reveille. To Wake us it a dress put on our trappings seize our arms and be in line on foot each division in front of its own tents did not admit of a great Deal of Leisure time most certainly for from tie first blast of the bugles until the orderly serpents commenced calling the roil was invariably inside of two minutes. In Media Italy afterwards came stable Call when the animals were taken out to fresh spots of grass then breakfast that i everything was packed and loaded into the wagons guard mounting then to horse when at last by half past six o clock the signal of Advance Una fund the Long string of the column from the compact Ball of the Encampment and we were fairly under Way again. It is but a Short time since in the account of the Pawnee Campaign All the modes Operand of encamp fing at night and starting in the morning was Given. It being the same on this expedition except in one or two unimportant details it is unnecessary to repeat it again. Are now just leaving the Hilly country and issuing out upon the undulating. In front and on Wiir right and left there Are numerous Groves fringing the various water courses a while in the rear the vast Valley of the Missouri is spread out like a dark Ocean of foliage. The appearance of the cavalcade As it passes Over the successive Levels of the Bright Green Prairie or winds through the intervening hollows or makes an extended Circle to avoid some a projecting Headland of Timber is picturesque and sometimes the route lays Over a straight Pend Icolar to the direction of the March it is that a person in looking upon it from either hand can see the command in profile at a glance each individual of it brought out in Strong Relief by a Quot Back ground Quot of Blue sky alone. Such views of it Are equally Fine. First the guide is seen by himself some Quarter of a mile Alread of All then the commanding officer followed by his orderly and chief bugler then the staff officers then a division mounted on Black horses marching by twos then another on Gre so another on Bays another on Sorrels and a fifth on Blacks again with an interval of one Hundred paces Between each division to avoid one another s dust alien the howitzers followed by a party of dragoons to Seri e them under charge of the sergeant major then the train of wagons with a detail to assist in getting them Over bad places under the immediate command of the quartermaster sergeant who receives his directions from the quartermaster then the drove of cattle and sheep followed by their guard of nine men under the command of a corporals and lastly the main guard under an officer to bring up the extreme Roar. Each Day the divisions alternate in taking the Lead As do the several wagons. Such is tie usual order of March though occasionally where the ground admits of it the command moves in two columns abreast. So far the Reader has had a general View of our appearance both in Camp and in route and he must consider it As they say in the Almanack so calculated for any Given Meridian on the whole Campaign after making a libera allowance for the variations required for time place and circumstances All of which will be chronic cd in due season. And Here we Are once More upon the Prairies and surrounded by nature in All her purity and her Bloom. No plough has Ever furrowed these Fields nor has the axe sullied the loveliness of these Groves. As they have always been do we behold them now clothed in the surpassing Beauty with which they were decorated by the hand of the creator. Who wonders that such scenes As these men from the hackneyed Gities of the crowded City and the title and affected Blandishments of society ? when a Sailor has been Long on Shore and his daily movements occupation or amusements Are circumscribed by the Boundary of some Small villages How soon the time begins Indianapolis wednesday april 22,1846.

But take him to some port show him his dear ship and Point to the Broad Blue sea and How his eyes will beam and his heart become elated at the Prospect of again enjoying that undefined pleasure which he Felt Only when out upon the bosom of the great sea. So with the dragoons of the Prairies. In Garrison the same scenes to look upon and the daily round of duties after a while become tedious. But talk to him of a Compaq Gnu picture to him the Broad Plains and the magnificent mountains luxuriant Groves and the Beautiful Rivers and he will fire up in a moment and his heart will Pant with impatience to mount up and be away again. What though his fatigues and privations Are to be ten fold that does not Dampen his Ardore not a bit of it he loves fatigue because his rest is Sweet after he loves privations partly to show he can endure Vliem and because they teach him How to enjoy that part of his life which has less of them. Talk to him of the Long Days marches under a burning Sun or in a cold storm of the hunger and of the thirst he is to experience but faster than you can enumerate them his mind will Call Back such scenes As these that Are delighting us and will picture the quiet Encampment the romantic bivouac the staunch and cheerful comrades the big Camp fire the roasted Buffalo ribs the broiled Venison the pint cup of hot coffees the sociable pipe the enchanting Story the jokes the song All these things and a thousand others which will put Down at once All your preachings of hardships with an eloquence that to his heart is perfectly irresistible. And now As we move on Tho mind of each Man is sketching for itself some picture that is pleasing. All Are cheerful and full of Hope. The Monotony of tie Garrison has Given place to the excitement of the March and each one is in the full enjoyment of that indescribable sensation of Freedom which is so both to the Sailor upon the Ocean and the Soldier in the Field a and which can never be Felt amidst the Bustle and the smoke and the noise and confinement of the City. To Day our course has Laid something North of West and we have followed a greater part of the line of last year s expedition leaving it Only to Cut off the great bends it was then obliged to Malie from the grounds being unusually wet that season and to night we Are encamped on Quot Clough Creek Quot named from the Soldier who so suddenly died on that Campaign and whose grave is on a Little Eminence just opposite to us. Or. Loring of Boston who left that City for the purpose of accompanying us did not arrive at fort Leavenworth until the evening of the i8th. had then gone. Supposing he would get there soon after that time a Carriage had been engaged to bring him on until he overtook us while the horses and the other necessary articles he might require we brought along to save him delay or trouble before starting. However when he got there he did not even wait for the Carriage but took horse and a guide which major Wharton kindly furnished him and immediately left upon our Trace. He came up with us to night pretty Well tired out from the fatigues of his Long ride. There Are a few More passengers whose names Are registered whom we Are yet to take aboard still farther along. The Gallant officers of the 1st infantry stationed at fort Leavenworth sent us by or. Loring a still later edition of their blessings and kind wishes for our Success and with it wherewithal to drink their Healths god bless them a and sundry goodies and Vickna skeries besides. In one sense like the Jolly old monks they seeded their departing Brethren with a Benedicate a bottle of wine and a scrip. The reach Camp or not they wrapped their cloaks snugly about a distinguished them. Their doctrine of pro destination sustained them and Rode silently along to await the Issue. The horse them in their work of overrunning the countries they formed died. Into the turkish Empire when they descended from Tho at evening we encamped in a Point at the Junction of the mountains a Young Hardy and vigorous people for they two streams Between which we had been marching nearly All deemed they were predestined to conquer. But when Tho Day and but a mile or two from the Little Blue. For the sacred Flag was twice Beaton Back from the Walls of Vienna whole night the rain came Down in torrents but by Day a the last time by John Ohio skin Flint same sentiment of break next morning it ceased and by eight o clock every predestination led them to believe that their Mission had been vestige of the storm had left the heavens. It took two hours to Complete a Bridge across the Stream accomplished and they could do no More. The Rise of Tho muscovite Power shortly after this and on our right when we were again on the March. In a Short the inroads it made upon the ottoman Empire were then time we reached Little blues but it was some time before traced and the lecturer observed that although Russia had we could find a spot suitable for passing it owing to the advanced somewhat further than she should have done yet depth of the water and the steepness of the Banks. At length 1 she had never Yie Deil a n Inch to Turkey and there existed a Ford was discovered where after a considerable labor with in the followers of the greek Church in Russia the settled Spades in grading Down a Road and in forming a matting of feeling that As the Cross was received in Russia from con Willows on the first shores to keep the animals from mining Stantin Ople it must be receive j from Russia to constantinople into the Quicksand As they descended into the water we and this to thought the True solution of the great Eastern commenced the . In one hour the whole command i question which the five great Powers Are now endeavouring was Over. Nothing had to swim but the sheep and by to solve. The turks having lost Confidence in themselves driving the cattle in first they took to the water without any hesitation. Little Blue River is about sixty Yards wide and has an Are therefore powerless. The lecturer hero sketched the influence which Christian principles had upon the nation How far they had penetrated. Average depth of three feet. Its Banks and bed Are composed i and what results had been produced and he especially and the of i Castelar. Passages in the life of Mary Stuart an hour had scarce elapsed before the lights were extinguished throughout the vaulted Halls of Holyrood the guards were posted for the night the officers had gone their rounds the ladies of the Royal Circle were dismissed and All was darkness and silence. In Mary s chamber a single lamp was burning in a Small recess before a beautifully executed painting of the Virgin but the Light was not sufficient to penetrate the obscurity which reigned in tie Many angles and alcoves of that irregular apartment although the moonbeams were admitted through the open casement. Her garb of ceremony Laid aside her Lovely shape scarcely veiled by a single Robe of spotless Linen her Auburn tresses flowing in unrestrained Luxuriance almost to her feet if she had been a creature of perfect human Beauty when viewed in All the pomp of Royal pageantry she now appeared a being of supernatural loveliness. Her Small White feet , glided Over the Rich carpet with a Grace which a slight degree of fancy might have deemed the motion Peculiar to the inhabitants of another world. For an instant Ere she retired to her repose she leaned against the carved mullions of the window and gazed pensively and it might be sadly upon the Garden where she had so lately parted with the unhappy youth whose life was thus embittered by that very feeling which above All others should have been its Consolation. Withdrawing her eyes from the Moonlight scene she Knelt before the lamp and the shrine which it Illuri Natch and her whispered Orisons arose pure As the source from which they flowed the prayers of a weak and Humble a North penitent for every Trival error breathing All Confidence to him who can alone protect or Pardon the prayers of a Queen for her numerous children and last and holiest of All a Wilnau s prayers for her unfortunate admirer. Yes she prayed for Chast Clar that strength might be Given to him from on High to Bear the crosses of a miserable life and the it by Devine mercy the hopeless love might be uprooted from his breast. The words burst passionately from her lips her whole form quivered with excess of her emotion and the big tears fell like rain from her uplifted eyes. While she was yet in the very flood of passion a sigh was breathed so clearly audible that the conviction flashed like lightning on her soul that this most secret prayer was listened to by other ears than those of heavenly ministers. Terror acute terror took Possession of her mind banishing by its Superior violence evor3 less idea. She snatched the lamp from its Niche a waved it slowly around the room and there in the most hallowed spot of her widowed chamber a spy upon her unguarded moments stood a dark figure. Even that moment of astonishment and fear As if by instinct the Beautiful instinct of purely female modesty she snatched a velvet Mantle from the seat on which it had been cast aside and veiled her person oven before she spoke Quot of god it is de Quot Sweet Queen Quot a replied the intruder Quot Bright Beautiful ruler of my destinies Pardon Quot a Quot what to Quot a she screamed in notes of dread intensity Quot of , Mes Frimm. My guards a Seyton car Michael Fleming will be leave Yoiiro Queen alone alone with treachery and Black cried turning her hashing eyes upon him her whole form swelling As it were with All the fury of injured innocence Quot didst thou dare to think that Mary a Mary the wife of Francis the anointed Queen of Scotland would Brook thine infamous addresses nay Kneel not or i spurn thee what to will no one Aid in my extremity Quot a Quot fear nought from me Quot a faltered Tho wretched Chasteler but with a voice like that of some inspired by lioness she broke in Quot fear thinnest thou that i could fear a thing an abject Coward thing like thee a a wretch that would exult in the infamy of oni it whom he pretends to love a fear thee by heavens if i could have feared contempt must have for Biden Quot nay Mary hear me hear me but one word if that word Cost my life Quot a Quot thy life Hadst Oliou ten thousand lives they would to but a Feather in Tho scale against thy monstrous Quot what to Quot a again she cried stamping with anger at the delay of in a attendants. Quot treason my guards trea Soti Quot at length the passages Range with the hurried footsteps of the startled inmates of Tho Palace with Torch and Spear and brandished Blades they rushed into the apartment Page Sentinel and Chamberlain ladies with dishevelled hair and faces blanched with terror. Tho Queen stood a jct in the Centre of the room pointing with one White Arm Bare to the shoulder towards the wretched culprit who with folded arms and head erect awaited his doom in unresisting silence. His naked rapier with which alone he might have foiled the United efforts of his enemies Lay at his feet his brow was White As sculptured Marble and no less rigid but his eyes glared wildly and his lips quivered As though to would have spoken. The Queen still furious at the wrong which he had done her Fame marked the expression. Quot silence Quot she cried Quot degraded wouldst thou meanly bog thy forfeited life Wert thou my father thou shouldst Dio to Morrow hence with the villain bid Maitland execute the warrant. Ourself ourself will sign it away Chasteler Dies at Quot tis Well Quot replied he calmly Quot it is Well the lips i love the Best pronounced my doom and i die Happy since i die for Mury wouldst thou but pity the off under while thou Dost doom the offence de Chasteler would not Exchange his shortened Span of life and violent death for the brightest Crown of Cliris Steddom. My limbs May die my love will live forever Lead on minions i am More glad to die than be to slay Mary Beautiful Mary think think hereafter upon Chasteler Quot the guards passed Onward last of the Groop unfettered and uni noved de Chasteler stalked after them. Once Ere he stepped beneath the Low bowed Portal he paused placed both hands on his heart bowed lowly and Thon pointed upward As he chanted once again the words Quot Pesez a Moi. Noble Dame pen Seza As he vanished from her , she waved her hand impatiently to be left alone and All the night Long she traversed and re traversed the floor of he Cham Bor in paroxysms of the fiercest despair. The warrant was brought to Here silently sternly she traced her signature beneath it not a sign of sympathy was on her pallid features not a tremor Shook her Frame she was passionless Majestic and unmoved. Tho Secretary left the chamber on his fatal from the National intelligencer. The democratic review and the Cost of War. The annexed communication is from an influential member of the d 3mocratic party and one who in times past was an Active political coadjutor of the present president in the House of representatives. . The following extracts from the March number of the democratic review Are recommended to the serious attention of the editor of the Union Quot it is not to be disguised that the Power of England Over the affairs of this continent is perhaps greater to rough financial than military Means. The credit of the United state by the failure of Many of the states in 1840 was not Only shaken but so entirely destroyed that a few millions of dollars could not be borrowed in Europe on any terms on the credit of the Federal government. That government could not raise a Dollar on its credit in time of profound peace at Home or abroad. Up to this moment that discredit does continue to a considerable extent or we might rather say that Confidence has returned Only in a very insignificant degree. Some Small Anion Tsofi United states Stock has indeed been retailed in London but the actual taking of an american loan has not As yet nor would it readily occur for some time to come. The French King has it is Well known been actively employed in electioneering if it May be so expressed among the Powers of Europe against the United states in the matter of the Oregon. Tho influence of powerful political interests added to tie existing discredit will prove fatal to any attempts to borrow abroad. Thero is within the country almost sex Haus less resources and the government woul Tiave no difficulty in its financial arrange ments if the monetary system was proof against the exigencies of a state of warfare. Unfortunately however one of the most serious consequences of a rupture would be the Complete prostration of our banking system amid the ruins of which the government would find it difficult to procure either Loans or . This Power of the English government exists now to a far greater extent than it did in the last War when it was exerted with an almost fatal effect for the reason that the number of Banks is now fir greater and the extent of outstanding credits Viry much larger in proportion to the business of the country or the amount of specie held by the Banks than they were then. Tho policy of the enemy was As Well to afflict the United states As Quot to provide for his own wants in Canada to Seii Bills drawn on the Imperial go Crnin ent for specie., by which Means the country became speedily exhausted of Coin and extraordinary disasters resulted that the amount of outstanding credits at the time that movement was commenced was not Large in proportion to the amount of specie on which they were based. Those outstanding credits Are now fearfully great and in order to observe in How much weaker a position the Massachusetts Banks Are now than when the last War took place we will compare the leading items 1812. $7,960,000 a 10,258,000 a .3,681,Gog. 2,102,358 -4,735,526 a the specie was then one to two of Cash liabilities and is now one to eight. Nor is Massachusetts alone in this extended position. As the Banks now stand it is very apparent that they Are not in a position to encounter any hostile movement in financial matters on the part of great Britain. In Case of hostilities the armaments on the Northern Frontier would be on a Gigantic scale. The whole wealth and strength of the Empire would be concentrated for the retention of those provinces and the outlay of Money would necessarily be immense there As Well As for preparations in the West indies. These enormous expenses would be provided for in the same manner in which on a much smaller scale they were met in the last War Viz by extensive sales of government Bills for specie at Low rates. By these Means a Large portion of Tho specie now held by our Banks would be transferred to the military chests of Canada and the More readily that about three fourths of it is foreign Coin. This operation has the twofold Benefit of supplying the Canadian forces with the indispensable article of Gold and also of severely crippling the movements of the United states government and of adding to the burdens and horrors of War the insolvency and ruin of All the mercantile men in the will the editor of the Union condescend to inform us whether the democratic review is to be denounced and proscribed and called Quot British Quot for having had the Independence to present these very unpleasant but very judicious and Well founded remarks to the notice of its readers capita Loans -.

It then proceeds up the country South of the Kansas River until near the Kansas villages when it turns to the right and after passing that River pursues nearly a Northwest course until it strikes Little Blue River. This it crosses near the Junction of one of its Eastern tributaries and then circles around to the left for nearly six Miles before it gets its pro Ner Westerly direction.

Quot Clifford Why Don t you speak to me Quot the following amusing anecdote which was headed Quot thou trial auction or Quot was originally published in this a we had proceeded Westward Only about five Miles farther up some six or seven years since.

But to show the difference in the length of the Road the Bost dramatic productions of the Day and among the one of the emigrants of this company informed us that they Quot Hunchback Quot Thon Tho rage in Boston whore the had already been out from Independence nearly three weeks. A Qiju a Fanny Kornblet was at Tho time delighting of the cavalry defiling the pall acc Gates struck on her heart As though each Hoof dashed on her bosom. An hour passed away the minute Bells still tolling the Roar of Culver in still swept heavily downward from the Castle and All was Over he had died As he had lived undaunted a As he had lived devoted a Quot Mary Devine Mary Quot a wore his last words Quot i love in death As i loved in life thee and thee Tho axe drank his blood and the Queen of Scotland had not the British in India the sikhs. observe in sundry journals denunciations of British rapacity in India As evinced in the War which has just broken out on the Banks of the sutlej. Are at a loss for the evidence on which these denunciations Are founded or justified. That the successive extensions of British Power in India have been in Good part impelled by ambition and a sordid thirst of gain is quite probable though it should never be forgotten that India has for at least a thousand years been the prey of successive hordes of military plunderers destitute alike of Good Faith humanity and even of that obvious and slender sagacity which should teach ruling castes not to destroy the Goose that lays the Golden eggs. Scourged and desolated by the periodical irruption of persian tartar and Marratta conquerors who successively blighted All they could not devour we cannot doubt that the people of India have had abundant reason to be thankful for the establishment of British Rule Over them and that an increase of population Security and Comfort have resulted therefrom. The overthrow of British Power there at present or until christianity intelligence and Public virtue shall have been thoroughly diffused would be a calamity not to India alone but to Mankind were the British unwise enough to covet a farther Extension of territory in India we do not believe they would Ever be driven to the necessity of commencing an unjust War for that purpose. So Long As an Independent state shall remain Between Persia and China so Long will there be a military Force ready to precipitate itself on the wealthy British provinces at the very first Promise of impunity for so doing. But circumstances that cannot lie prove that the British Power in India has sedulously coveted peace for some time past. An absolute so a Over one Hundred millions of people maintained by a comparative handful of a contrasted race and Faith far away from Home and resources in Good part by Means of a military Force drawn from the subject myriads must be emphatically an Empire of opinion and one which a single reverse of Fortune May shake to its the British have so much to lose and so Little left to gain by an Appeal to War in India that an assertion that they provoked or courted a collision is one eminently requiring evidence to support it. But in this Case not Only is there a positive Lack of affirmative testimony but the negative is conclusively established. When the present British ministry succeeded the Melbourne Cabinet lord Ellenborough was a truer servant left behind than he whom for a moment s App a in Ted governor general of India. He went out accor Phonzy she was compelled to slay yet was his last wish a a a a Fly but it soon became apparent that he was ambitious satisfied for though Tho Queen might not relent the woman military distinction and meditated accessions of territory did forgive and in Many a Mournful hour did Mary think on Chasteler. Reader to get Over this part of the journey has been rather a tedious business for you As Well As ourselves. The fact is the ground was so closely gleaned last year that Only a few Heads of Grain Conid be picked up this time. But from Here on no doubt we shall come to patches that have not even been reaped yet and there perhaps Well have perfect Harvest of interest Point if you please. The town with her Julia and every body was Well acquainted with the celebrated lines Quot Cli Flord Why Don t Yon speak to me Quot Quot la Lillord is ii Yout &.c. Amp a. Which ranked among the favorite Points of the play.

Who bid fifty Throe one said fifty Throe who was it to bid Quot fifty three Clifford said a voice near the door. O Clifford is it you Tain. So having been comforted by the Blessing and eaten the scrip we will finish both the comparison and bottle by a n r 117 another god bless theml merely remarking at tie same time the flourish my Little town of Weston Only five an Opportunity to Gladden the of fort leaven Ortii is fifty farther up the Les of our hearts with such Good wine As that in a problem More difficult of solution than any in Newton s Pru Icinia and infinitely More dry. It is said that in the Navy Many of our ships have conducted their cruises throughout entirely upon cold water and this May be set Down As a military Campaign carrying out that principle for with the exception of the Hospital stores it would be hard to gather enough liquor together to drown and preserve even a decent specimen of a Marmot. On the morning of the 20th, by building a Bridge across a Small Branch of Quot Clough Creek Quot we were enabled to Cut off All of three Miles which we were obliged to travel last year in order to avoid it. At 9 o clock we struck the old Trace again at four in the afternoon encamped on the head Waters of stranger River a tributary of the Kansas. Our course to Day was w. N. W., and Lay Over the Ridge that divides the water falling into Wolf River and those running into the from Bouri than Independence and is believed by Many to be a much better Point from whence to commence the journey. Several important reasons Are Given Why such a belief is entertained and among them the following appear to be worthy the consideration of those tie most interested in the matter a first because the former is situated in the extreme West pm Bend of the River and consequently makes the distance Shorter to be travelled in an unsettled country and is but a Little South of an East line running from where the Trace should fall into tie Valley of tie Nebraska and in the second place because the crossing of the Kansas is entirely avoided As Are All the difficulties and dangers such a operation presents to say nothing of the waste of much valuable time in the ferrying Over of a Large company and which cannot Well be spared at the most important season of the likewise it is said Fiat several other exceedingly bad streams Spring Boston Star on the subject of advertising holds the following language a Quot nothing is More clearly settled or More universally admitted than that the Best Money spent by a business Man is that paid for advertising. The fact has been demonstrated throughout the world some sign to embellish and for oysters drinks men will pay enough for a hand exclaimed the auctioneer Dro Ping his Hammer and clasp i their stores for elegant windows ing his hands a la Fanny Keni Ide. The joke was inns stable cigars confectionary and Nick packs a every body recognised it and catching the spirit of the to pay half a dozen years advertising Bills and All without i thing Quot the audience followed up an ecstacy of laughter with any Benefit to their business or , to compare with three rounds of Ai Plause while the auctioneer deliberately any Bennt to their business or diem solves to compare. A i i the advantages to be gained by free advertising. Hundreds Drew out his handkerchief and wiped his nose in burlesque ought to be paid where tens Are now if merchants would imitation of Liss Fanny. Clif turd did you say sir Cli Ali rive and make Money. J Ford said Tho auctioneer when the merriment had a Little it docs not answer to dabble lightly in the matter. A Man subsided. Is it Cash sir Cli Flord the purchaser it seems May As Well expect to Wash his hands by dipping a Finger was a bashful person unacquainted with theatrical things tin in water Aste give his business a sensible clean lift by and had become somewhat alarmed at the unaccountable a Little advertisement. The True Way and the profitable one Quot Good humor of the crowd so that he was afraid to open his is to pay for Liberal advertising and then use it. Keep the lips again lest he should excite another burst of Iun. Is it Mill wheel turning All the time and people will ,.sir? again inquired the auctioneer. Send you their grist after a while. Depend upon it half i All eyes were turned upon Clifford who looked very the business men who Quot burst up Quot might avoid the painful much As if he Felt that his Mother right be anxious about and disastrous event by resorting to the Printer s instead of. Him but still he made no answer. The merry auctioneer the Shaver s Aid to hold then up. Half the sum paid for would rather lose his customer than his joke and he sudden shaving and other follies would make the foolish men who by exclaimed still imitating the fiery eyed Lanny pay for those luxuries Rich and comfortable. Try it and Cli Tord Why cum to you h eak to me the Assembly now fairly screamed with laughter and amid to two thousand Gallons of Carphene Are consumed in the City of new York each night. The Assembly now fairly an uproarious burst of applause Clifford made a Bolt for the door and escaped the Tariff. The new York courier wish those Wise men in Congress who insist that the Tariff occasions High prices could find time and disposition to pass through some of the Fine warehouses in which our cloths Cassimeris and wills in to old Tho fancy prints Cali Coes sheeting and shirting in Cotton a Are so perfectly displayed and thus convince themselves by comparison of samples and prices with like goods imported from abroad before the Tariff of 42, that the american fabrics while equal and often Superior in Quality in texture in color and in taste Are Many of them one half and All of them much cheaper. Quot i in Tariff of 42 is now just producing that effect which among others was predicted by its friends that if let alone it would necessarily produce such an amount of Competition among Domestic manufacturers As would assuredly reduce prices to the it ii no ii at which the goods Couil be made yet this is the moment taken to interfere with a Law so beneficial. The fact alluded to above by the n. Y. Coia pier that almost All varieties of and Cotton goods Are very much cheaper than they wore before Tho adoption of the present Tariff has been olt reiterated and is known to every Man who has occasion to Purchase goods made in this country or to enter our mercantile establishments. The opponents of free american labor sometimes indicate the idea that goods Are lower under a High Tariff than under a Low one but they cautiously avoid the incontestable facts and arguments adduced on the Point. The manner in which this result is brought about is correctly pointed out by the courier. Encouragement of Home Maui Altures secures Competition at Home and thus accrues to the Benefit of the consumer. Competition from abroad a a Competition backed by the whole wealth of the Mammoth establishments of Europe Breaks Down our manufactories if unprotected by the government and thus places us at the mercy of those who Are not slow to regulate the prices to suit themselves having unlimited control of the . It. Journal. Military especially in the direction of Punjab a Large and Fertile Kif room in North Eastern India watered by the Indus and five of its chief tributaries. Ranjeet Singh Long the energetic despot of the Punjab and a Friend of the English had recently deceased leaving his dominions to an inefficient heir a turbulent licentious soldiery and a dissolute court. A convulsion of some kind was inevitable. Lord Ellenborough prepared to take advantage of it. The directors of the East India company on learning his ambitious projects availed themselves of a Long dormant right and removed him from the governor generalship. Sir Henry Hardinge was sent out to succeed lord Ellenborough and has ruled India Ince. He has carefully abstained from giving any for hostilities to the sikhs or Warrior casts who have practically ruled the Punjab since the death of Ranjeet Singh. But they were not thus to be avoided. The dissolute court of Lahore apprehending that they would else turn their arms against itself contrived to precipitate them on the British dominions. So far from having been courted by the British this irruption evidently took them by surprised and at disadvantage and to withstand it taxed their ability to the utmost Cost them Many valuable lives and disabled one sixth of their Force engaged. That they will now attempt to follow up their Victory by the Conquest of the country whence they were so formidably assailed and Are morally certain to be assailed again whenever the sikhs May attack them with a Prospect of Success is quite Likely and according to the usages and moralities of War. Whether this shall or shall not prove the Case however we submit that the declamation against British aggression and British rapacity in reference to the Punjab ought to be supported by something like evidence or else .
