"Requitecat in pace" .j| is sometimes by a free translation, made to read "peace to his •shea." Using still more liberty with its grammar, we propose at present, to read it, "Uere let us rest in peace." Why not The readers of the COURIER have heard of a garden planted "eastward in Eden." We thtre, were born. Its occupants were the playmates and companions of our earliest years and their revered parents now more than eighty years of age, stands in our heart, second only to her who filled the place of a mother. With such sur­ roundings we almost'instinctively drop back into that condition of freedom from care and responsibility that belongs to childhood. ]tut how did we reach this point? From Ottumwa to Burlington there was of course but one route. From Burlington, for reasons which the result has proved to us wise, we chose the route through Poorh, Logansport, Fort Wayne and Toledo, thence across the i^akc in a boat of the N. Y. and Erie trans portation lincto Dunkirk,and to New York of course over the Erie road. From the be ginning to the end of this route we were more than satisfied and glad all the time Jp that we had taken no other. The directness, its spoed, and above all, the country shown to travellers on it, must render it attractive and popular. As to time we took it quite lei«urely, lying over at both Burlington and rS, Peoria to rest and visit friends. Had we Ii'ft in the train the same evening lit we reach Burlington, we should have been in Toledo, a distance of 500 miles from home, at the end of 21 or 2"i hours, making an ave- on the Erie road, a traveller is all the time in his element ifhe loves both comfort and speed, and withall, a most romantic scenery. The cars on this road, in their structure and finish, are far better than we have found elsewhere. Their seats are susceptible of adjustment to the comfort of the passenger, waking or sleeping, by night or by day. They ate ventilated on such a plan that yon can always have an abundance of puie air to breathe, without annoyance from smoke, dust or cinders, or from a current of cold air through a window thrown open upon you by the caprice of some nervous neighbor. The trains on this road, according to its own time table, goes about 450 miles in about 18 hours, averaging a fraction more than 23 miles an hour, and we noticed that they reached their stopping places uniformly about two minutes before their time, and in no case one minute behind it. The consideration shown to the comfort and fPhe pole which was to have been raised by the De •Scracy of Blakesburg, on Friday of last week, met the same fate that befel Washburn's eagle—it didn't this the unsurpassed beauty of the scenery hlgerthan the heads of the multitude when It re­ convenience of passengers by all the em ployees, and all the arrangements on this road, surpasses all our previous or subse­ quent experience on this subject. Add to along the route, and till one has passed over it, he may remember that there is still some­ thing new in the world for hi'n to see and enjoy. B. A. S.

On the njsrth and west beyond the meadow, are native forest trees, oak, bireh, and maple, so mingled with a variety of evergreens which lift their lofty tops far above that of their unconscious neighbors, as perennial piety and patriotism must ever rise above that vvhich only "leaves out" during the summer of a revival, or makes the whole land fragrant with the aroma of its blossoms, during the h:l(] rtff-(.r0(l nr con ,M,t the Royal sanc- cel, are cured, and will treat 4 A I.I.
