Tho writer has truly pretented with, cut exaggeration one of those acenea In the prog ress of war, which General Taylor has truly said is "enough to fill the whole laud with mourning:" "Never had I beheld such destruction of proper ly. Scarcely a house did I pass that did not show some great rent made by the bursting of our bombs. At almost crery house at which I paused to exam ine tho destruction occasioned by those dreadful messengers of death, someone of the family if the house did not happen to be deserted would come to the door, and invito mo to enter, point out her property destroyed, and with a pitiful sigh exclaim, 'La bomba, la bomba' the bomb.

The stamp itself is a little larger than a shilling piece, in the centre of which, is tlie head of Franklin, Washington,, or other renowned character .perhaps Hon.

Mr Whitney asks Congress to act apart a atrip or the public lauds CD miles wide, from ilia lake to the Ocean. The land for 800 miles, he says, is good, but for the remainder or tlio distance it is worthless, The road will be 2,400 miles in length, and its cost is estimated at $70,000,000. If. Mr Whitney can, by the toil or all his life, induce Congress to produco the means to accomplish this great work, who can hesitate to say, by all means let him hare them let him try? If he fails, we lose nothing the lands still belong to the nation if he succeeds, it is all gain to us it will be an addition of so much as the road costs to the actual capital of our coun try, and giring us the entire control of the com merce of the world.
