The 2Vevr Union Line Packet
One of the moat beuutiful and complete
steambonts ever built at this or any other
port is the new Union Line steamer Hen
Lewis, just finished, and ready, for busi
ness at our Levee. Everything except
ing the hull was built and furnished here,
under the immediate supenuicndcncs of
Cupt. Brierly, who has watched every
piece of timber that went , in her, from
her hull to the pilot house. The extreme
length of tho lien Lewis is 215 feet;
keel 'J'JU f.:et; beim 31 feet; hold G 1-2
feet; llojr 31 feet. She has four boilers
'23 feet lon; and 40 inches in diameter ;
engines with 21 1-2 inch cylinders, and
8 feet stroke. Her wheels are 32 feet in
dmuiuter, with 10 feel bucket. She is
supplied with a doctor, niggir boiler, &c,
and the freight-hoister and capstan are
all worked by steam. In fact tho latest
improvements in machinery have been
adopted. The boat has a carrying capa.
city of 800 tons.
Thu hull of the Den Lewis was built
by Geo. Rodgers, of Metropolis, Illinois.
It i3 a beautiful model, which, with her
powerful machinery, will make the Ben
Lewis the fastest bout, by fur, that ever
turned a wheel in tho Missouri river.
There is no djubl of this, and Capt.
Brierly informs us that she will be able
to make the distance from St. Louis to Sl.
Joseph in two days. She draws thirty
two inches light, with wood and water
aboard, and her draught will be sufficient
ly light to meet the exigencies of naviga
gatiou in the Missouri ut any tune. Tne
cabin contains 5'2 rooms, and will accom
modate 120 passengers. Thu calin of
the Ben LcwN is a beautv the great
feature of the boat, as she lies ai our
Levee. Under way it may be eclipsed
by her speed, for she will certainly prove
The cabin is very large, wide and
roomy; a puro white, and is furnished
in a magiiifieiont ityle. The state rooms
are large, supplied with spring mattresses
and bedding of superior quality, and all
requisite toilet articles. The painting, a
mot admirable job, was done by Messrs.
It. & . A. 1 hornburgh, anJ they will
put it against anything ever executed for
style and finish.
As the Ben Lewis is chiefly a St. Louis
production, it will be proper to nam a thu
various mechanics which combined to pro
duce her: engines, by Gerard B. Allen;
rabiu, by John Pipe ; carpets. &e.. by
Wilcox & McDowell ; curtain good. &c,
by J. L. Chandler &. Co. ; chafing dishes
and outiit, by P. Locke ; silverware, by
Hvauvias; mirrors and stained glasses,
ky Miller and Boisaubon : furniture and
bar, by John Simm, of Louisville.
The Ben Lewis is the fifth steamer
which Capt. Brierly has built He has
distributed his patronage to extractors
pretty well around, in the Ohio river and
at this place, and he informs us that . he
prefer St. Louis for thu kind of median

and hereafter, if he should build agein,
he will rive his work to Su Louis arti.
zans. ' The builders of the steamers Kl
Paso, Polar Star, Martha Jewett, Morn
imr Star and Den Lewis, could not have
said more in favor of our mechanics.
T ie Ben Lewis is shining evidence o'
this fact. Tne Ben Lewis will be officer
ed i a follows: T. H Brierly. command
eri VV, B. Barkiy.of Kansas City, clerk;
Mr. Van Vleit, assistant ; Jm?s Abbey,
bteward; M. B. Wihrow, pilot; Samuel

eer. All thesT gentlemen aro well
known, and popular in tluir various ca
pioi'.ii s. Mr. Abbey will have his cabin
crew thoroughly drilled and dressed in
uniform. Ho is one of tho bo.t river
caierers afloat, and will be re ne inhered
by our renders ns tho marine genius of
tho Morning Star.
The Ben Lewi is now receiving1 at
the Union Line whnrf boat, and is the
regular Union packet. She will run
regularly between St. Josheph and St.
Louis. She ha a cotillion band engaged
for the season, which is now considered
one of the qualifications of a first class
passenger boat. Music and darning will

The fair weather that we havo been

Money is more plenty in the commer

it has been for years. The banks are
running over with money, and capiiali.-U
seek in vain for profitable investments for
their fundi. In fact, this precious article,
which so short a time ago was extremely
scarce and so much in demand, is now a
drug in tho eastern markets. Much of
this capital, now lying idle in New Vork,
Boston and other eastern cities, will doubt
Ihrs find its iay to the West in a short
lime, seeking investment, contributing to
western enterprise, and relieving the
uringcncy in money matters now embar
rassing our business men and almost all
classes of our people.
At the West, loo in this city especial
ly ihere Is an improvement noticeable in
b tsiness matters. ' The dullnea. and com
parative inactivity, which have weighed
down the business eneigies of nur com
munity for several months past, have in a
grent measure disappeared, and ait being
succeeded by the formor lift and bustle
of trade nnd enterprise. Our merchants
are taking ceurage. and a week or two of
such humanizing weather and attendant
increase of confidence, will melt away the
last vestige of the late " hard limes."
The re-opening of navigation on the
Lakes and Canals, a few days hence, will
be the signal of a rapid and general re
action in western trade. The immense
stock of produce which is now awaiting
shipment in this city, will then go for
ward, and the addi ional stocks of grain
that aro still in the interior will come to
market and soon find their way to the
East, and the rales of exchange will then
decline to a reasonable figure, and money
will again become abuudaut.
The resources of wealth auJ enterprise
in the country, are more than adequate to
