The Chicago and Rock Iiland kailtcad Company ?This corporation seems bant on getting into inoxtricablo trouble?on taking measures to end in destroying, utterly destroy ing the valus of every share of their stock W e find evidence of this fact in the following article from a late number of tbe St. Louis Intelligencer : Tbb Bridgr at Rock Islaxd?Hcgr Brkak watrr to be Built.?We learn that the Chi cego and Hock Inland Railroad Company, be sides the creation of a bridge across the Mi* sLsippi, at Rock Island, are preparing to buiid an immense breakwater in the Mississippi just above and adjoining the great centre pier en which will swing the draw on the railroad bridge. This breakwater will require about 500,000 feet of lumber and 13.000 > ards of rook for its construction It is intended f>r the great draw to reft upon when swung around; the upper end of it for a house for the draw-keep er to reside in, and for an icebreaker and breakwater. Its huge dimensions will defy tbe storm and fl->od5. Of this undertaking, the Rock Island Repub lican savs: " To most peoplo, the idea of a huge pile cf rocks about forty feet teid? and five huruirtd ftet long, with a house on the upper end of it, apd lying in the middle of the Mississippi and directly above an immense pier on which the draw turns?the idea, we 9ay, of all this being co obstruction to navigation, would, to most people seem rather absurd 1 " Without any regard to what tbe decision of Judge McLean may be in relation to the 1 erection of this bridge, the railroad company teem determined to prosecute the work, and are about to erect more shanties on the north , side of the island for laborers. , '* The company probably does not want or ' need aiy advice as to what course it shall < pursue; but to ordinary men it "would have ; seemed more proper to obtain theconscnt of ( the United iyatea Government to pass over a military reservation and devastate Govern- * ment property, before it appropriates all the t earth arid reek on tbe island to railroad pur poses, and takes forcible possession of nearly tho entire island. ? 'Whatever the decision of Judge McLean c may ba, we consider the course pursued by the t railroad company, in regard to the island, a cn .st outrageous Ka-ump'ion of power, and a 1 m^st wanton destruction of property ow ( *hich it bas no control " j There is a question in Issue between the v, General Government atd this company. It is now in the hands of Judge McLean, cf the Su preme Court. The United States would cot have thrown an obstacle in the way of the si'mpany, usle-3 the Government wore tho roughly convinced that their du^y to their ?rust made such a cl-u.oj imperatively neces sary ; nor even then, unless *ell as.ured that he courts of law would sustain their action ihe directors, however, 1-ck business tiiQt to >ueh an extent as to go ou expending the stock holder's money, in the hope of beiEg able to iutly the General Government out of i*s rights in this Controversy. This gimo has often bam essayed bstora, but always ending in the over throw, rooaer or later, of the parties anxious to butt their business brains out after this fashion. Ih? company in this ca?o may rely on two cr three fixed facts : flr3t, that the Govern ment are not opposing their purpose/ further : than compelled so to do under the law ; next. 1 that if the Supreme Court sustains the fJovern ! ment, they (:ho company) wiil lose every dol lar they may venture in this foolish contest And last, that they have only to satisfy tho ' Government of the propriety of their de mands and intentions, to have the latter ' working in harmony with them?-second ing thfir efLrta to improve the 6eotion cf the country through which the proposed rail- i road is to pass As the matter now stands, , however, it seems to us that there is little hope that tho direction of the Chicago and Roek Island Railroad enterprise will fail to waste every dollar of the money of their stock holders in a foolish contest against the Gov ernment, which can only terminate in their inglorious, eventual overthrow. Kr. Josiah 7. Polk.?Thii gentle;aan, in ccmplaining, in the columns of an evening cotemporary, of his recent removal from office, takes occasion to go oat of his way to impugn our motives; characterizing tho Slur as a 44 Jesuit organ." Oar relations wUh Mr. Polk have always been so friendly as to make his assault npon us a matter of surprise. It has set us to inquiring into the causes of his re moval, and wo hear that it was occaslonod by a variety of cirum3tacces, some of which are R3 follows : first, that he has of late gone ac tively into politics; next, that he has acceptcd two cfficcs under the corporation of Washing ton, of great importance to the city's future, the duties of which he cannot properly dis eh rgo if he is compelled to do a day's work for the General Government every twenty four hours; thirdly, he has long bean a contentious and litigious man in religious matters, devot ing bixsclf with heart and soul to the work of persecuting and maligning a religious sect en titi?l to a* kind treatment at the hands of tbe Government of the United States as any other sect; and his superiors in office were no longer di-pesed to furnish out of the public treasury the moa^s (his salary) of enabling him so to empliy him.olf. The Ivcrson Grass ?The chief of the ag ricultural branch of the Patent Ogiao has re ceived a report from W. W. W. Bowie, c f Prince George s county, Md , of his experi enca in raising the new Georgia grass?the Iverson grats?whioh first o*tne into notice by being described and greatly praized in lust year's Patent Office (Agricultural) Report. Mr. Bowie writes tlut he sowed it "during the last of October, upon kind coil, unma nned. It came at unco, and has grown kind ly. It is now (March 17ib) at least three inchis high, ard has been green all the win ter. It bids lair to be the most valuable gra?J ever grown In Maryland. I at first doubted most that was said of it. but I now feel sure that it will surpass all that its origin ator or discoverer has written about it." The bureau has equally favorable accounts t of the result of an experiment with this grass made by Mr Lowis Bailey, of Fairfax oounty, Ya , well known to be second to no othor gen tleman in the State as a successful sgricultu ralist. J Calvort Ford, Esq ? Perceiving in yester day morning's Clipper, a story attributirg this gentleman's promotion in the bureau cf the Second Auditor of the Treasury, to the fact that he is a Catholic, we have to say, after inquiry, that he has baen a olerk under the Government here for some twelve yearf, and stood next to the gentleman removed, on the clerical list of tbe Second Auditor's Office So, as he is in all respects an efficient officer, had he been an Israelite, or a Turk in his religion, be would have been duly promoted by the chief of his bureau, Mr. Clayton, who by the by is a Methodist, lie is of the Calvert (Baltimore) family, his ancestors being among the very first Luropean settlers of Maryland, is a gentleman of character, and enjoys the confidence and respect ef his fellow citt-1 tens here without distioction of party, as well I s of those over hiua in th6 public sat rice Tho Parkville Mob ?Oar readers are all! aware that the people of the county in whiob I Parkville, Mo., is situated, recently destroyed I the " Parkville Lnmlnary," an abolition sheet I published in that town. While wj by no I means sympathise with mob violence under I any pretence whatever, we are unhesitatingly sympathisers with those who oppose the i2 terference of the northern " aid societies" to abolitioniae Kansas. The following brief let-1 ter, on which wo have no room to make more J comment!, was written by a Prince William, I Va , man, to his brother in this city, and will 1 afford a fair illustration of the tone of the mass of the peoplo in Kansas upon the exist- 1 ing state of the slavery controversy there: Parkville, April 29, 1855. I I enclose an Argus extra. The mob acted I entirely independent of the citixoos of Park-1 ville, though all but a few, three or four., gave I it their hearty sanction. You may, perhaps, I oondemn it, though if you were here to see, you I you woald say, Ml right. 1 wish yoa U> give the extra to some editor to publish, if it should not already bo in your I papers. Times are getting pretty hot about here; scores of northerners are taking the back track Kansas is destined te be a slave State, un doubtedly. I am expecting to hear daily of I all the Freesoil presses in Kansas Territor I, sharing the same fate.
