thirty, miles. Commencing at , the

The city of St. Louis presents a riv
er front of ten miles, nine of which is
lighted with gas. It has two grand
Boulevards or Avenues circling
arouncHhe city one called the Grand
Avenue, which circles from a point
near the Arsencl around the smost
densely populated portion to Bissel's
Point above. The other, the King's
Highway, is a magnificent Boule
vard running around the city just two
miles west of Grand Avenue. These
streets are each 120 feet wide, and the
last is twenty-five, miles in length.
The city is densely built up from
two to three miles from the river, and
more or less so from two to three miles
further. Just imagine a circle com-
encing at the- mouth of the -Little
Nemaha, running up by Bennet's
mills, George Crow's. James Cole
man's, London, W. G. Glasgow's,
and from thence down Honey.Creek
to the Missouri river, densely built up
with from one to five story buildings,
thronged with people and every man
ner of vehicle, steamboat and rail
road cars, all on the go, and you will
then have an idea of what St. Louis is.
Among her palatial hotels are to be
found the South ten and the Mound
City. The last is probably the most
conveniently located j of any in the
city, at the corner of North Market
and Fourth streets, near the North
Market street depot. Its proprietor,
G. A. Boyd, is a cor too us and affable
gentlemen, and his house is well fur
nished, and his table supplied from
the best of the St. Louis markets.
From this point street cars -run' to
every part or tin; city.

The Capitol Convention held last
w eek in St. Louis was a grand suc
cess. Most of the Western, and a few
or the Southern and Eastern State
and the Territories," had full delega
tions present. -
Garrett Davis, of Kentucky, was
the only dissenting delegate present.
He, in a short speech before the con
vention, expressed himself as being
immovably opposed to the removal of
the National Capitol. Finding but
iittle or no sympathy from others, lie
quieted down and made no further
eflbrt in opposition to the work; -
The ''resolutions" were reported in
the morning of the second day, and
red as a whole, and afterwards consid
ered seriatim. Each section was read
several times, amendments offered so
as to conform them to the exact truth.
Not one Word for bunkum ; but the
spirit manifested by all was to express
the facts in the fewest possible, direct
words. All our readers should rend
carefully the resolutions : herewith
printed. All disposition to work upon
the prejudices of. any locality, to find
fault with the Fast, North, South or
! West, was Dromntlv rebuked. The
I removal wa3 not urged on the ground
of its favoring an particular locality,
but as a matter of justice and right to
the great majority of the American
people. ' It was admitted that under
all theconsiderations at the time the
Capital was wisely located at Wash
ington.' Then it was scarcely thought
that civilization could work its way
far west of the Aleghaneys. The pop
ulationthenwas only found border
ing the Atlantic, and Washington,
seventy miles up the Potomac, was
deemed very extravagantly far inland,
and the journey to it a dread from the
most favorable direction, of approach,
so much so that . Congress continued
for ten years after its location to hold
its sessions in :Philadelphia. The lo
cation of the National Capital now at
Ft. Kearney, in Nebraska, would not
be thought as inconvenient and im
politic as our fathers, thought Wash
ington was at first. Since then. times
have changed, ; What then was con
considered hopelessly the incontesti
blc habitation'ofthe'red'man and his
hunting grouhds,drc:now'solcly under
Anglo Saxon control and husbandry
The pioneer has already, reached'the
Pacific, and his humble abode is to be
found upon every hill top and valley
verging upon the Great Rocky and
Cordileras range. No one now doubts
but the vast domainsof the nationa
government areeventually to be under
the plough share, and that railroad,1
telegraphs, steamboats,printing press
cs, schools, churches,, towns, and cit
ies, with their , commerce and man
ufactories, are soon to spread civiliza
tion Into the remotest corners of our
vast domains. These all bring in their
train new wants, desires and policies
not thought of a century ago. This
ultramontane and materialistic age
may respect old associations and the
decrees of the Fathers of the Repub
lic, but they will hot be controled by
their memories when at the expeu
of convenience, justice, and the press
ing wants of the nation.
' The national capital must, therefore,
in time approach the great Missouri
valley. -The reasons which demand
it are such as to appeal to the patriot
ism and sense of justice of every por
tion of our common country, and there
can be but one result. The capital of
the nation must come. The united
interests of the nation will demand it,
and its fiat must beobeyed. .Local
interests and individual prejudices
may for a time block the wheels of
fate, but the accumulating wants of
this growing and progressing country
will soon sweap away all obsticles,
and the will of the people will in the
not far distant future decree a reloca
tion of the national capital in the
great Mississippi Valley. Of this we
have not a shaddow of a doubt

The Omaha Republican and the
State Journal are calling for an extra
session or" the Legislature for local
reasons. ' One wants the State to cede
its sovereignty to a parcel of land in

penitentiary located at Lincoln. As
a further consideration they urge the
adoption of the XVth amendment to
the federal constitution. While we
may favor all these measures, still we
fail to find in them matters of "press

the expense of an extra session.

Mb. Editor: . It appears to be a

the rebel demagogue, (Calhoun by
name), as to whether .the Superinten

not. Now, I do not think it .auy of
his business. He says it was not a
Democratic victory, yet he is striving
to get the Republicans who voted and
sustained the ticket to come forth and
worship him as the sovercrgn ; the
ruler; the dictator; to reverence him
as the Jews did the Sanhedren. Now
we do not propose that any 01 our
party who run upon that ticket wil
elope at the sound of his trumpet. We
claim that the ticket was elected bv
publican force, and propose to sus-
tain our suare or me iieKei on mat
basis, When the ticket was nomina
ted it was not to be a Democratic
ticket ; yet, that egotistical, egregious,
pusilanimous, comes out now and
wants the Republican party to come
