4 1 The Pilot Monopoly- Injury to onr City. A merchant of Main street called our at tention yesterday to a monopoly which, he alleges, hat been in existence lor tome 'ime at this port, and which in beginning to work very serious detriment to our cily. It ia a follow: The Missouri river P.icket Lines have engaged all the Pilots that have license to run bonis on tliat fiver. The number of Missouri river pilots is none too great for the demands of that trade, even when nil ore actively employed. But oil of them being "engaged"' by the packet that are plying on that river, no other boats are able lo come in at all. These pilots arc not all needed by the Missouri river boots. On the contrary, many of them, after being hired, cam their money by walking leisurely aboui lite streets of SI. Louis! The consequence is, that a very tew boats, comparatively, have monop olized all the carrying trade on one of the most important rivers in the West; and at a time, too, when the develrj ments of the...

GLASGOW WEEKLY TIMES, THURSDAY MORNING, APRIL 19, 1855. Cfce (glftggoto Cimcs. Boating: Monopoly What it to be Done? The business portion of the community on the Missouri river are becoming greatly in censed at the monopoly that at present ex ists on our river. The boats have entered into a combination and hired all the Pilots, and they get exorbitant wages either to work or piny. If they work, they only go on such boats as the combination have an in terest in. All transient boats arc shut out. The price of freight, per hundred, is $1 to this place, and $2 to St. Joseph; whereas, it was formerly from twenty to twenty-five cts in the packet trude, and about forty cents above, and bouts made money at that. If this combination were broken up, and all boats that chose, permitted to come into our river, freights would come down to a figure that sugar, coffee, iron,&c, could be brought up, and niir hemp, tobacco, wheat, &c, be taken out and a profit realised.

It is folly to charge it upon our laws. No eountry in lh world has more just or equitable ones; and if they are nut right it is the fault of the peop'c that they are not so. Tlie ditlerence nt this time between the j North and the South, presents many import ant aspects. Whilst here industry is para lysed, there, labor was never more in demand.
