"Lands Lave reached a price far beyond their value, and money briDjjs from 50 to 75 per cent, interest. We know of individuals who went ont this spring to purchase lands, that found it more profitable to put their money out on loan, Some idea of the state of affairs may be formed from what is related by a correspon dent of the Ohio State Journal, who writcs from Omaha,' Nebraska Territory, whither he "had journeyed through Iowa. lie says that Iowa is a grand theatre of speculation; that the towns are all from ten to a hundred years ahead cf thc eonntry ; that they are mere pa per inflations blown up by shrewd operators, and that this spring there is moie emigration from Iowa than immigration to it.

WILL IT BE DONE 1 Immediately after the passage of the bill for the tale of the Main Line of the Public Works, some of the leading Democratic papers raised the cry of "Packer and Repeal," and declared their intention of making that the issue for the campaign. The Main Line has been sold ; the contract for the sale completed ; the works are alreadr, or will in a few daysbe in the posses sion of the purchasers ; and this, too, after a decision by the Supreme Court that the con tract and sale would be , constitutional ! We are curious to know, now that the sale is made, whether the Democratic press will insist upon the proposed issue whether they will attempt to repudiate the "decision of the Supreme Court whether they will try to pass a law to violate or impair the obligation of a constitu tion.il contract, so declared by a bench of Democratic judges whether they will att...

And 1 praised her hair and eyes, And like roses from her basket. On her checks saw blushes rise With her timid looks down glancing, She said, wonld I just pass before ?
