Burlington, March 23, 1037. RANDOLPH. GK.EEN COUNTY, Illinois. rrillE town uf RANDOLPH is mlvnii A tngoouslv situated on I bo MiiSfippi river, on frnclionnl sections nnd 20, in Township No. 0 norlli, nnd rnngi' No II, west ol the third principal meridian, nbniit eqiiidistnnt between Alton nnd Grafton, in Green County, Illinois, on n bcnutiliil bench oflnnd, from ten lo twelve feci nbovo the highest known floods ot I he river, nut! stretching back n halt' mile in extent. Nalnro hns been abundantly lavish. In bestowing ndvattlngos on Ibis spot, for n great commercial city, in many roepects superior lo nny oilier on the Illinois sido of tho Mississippi, between the mouth of the Ohio nntl tho Illinois river. 1 ho ,ml of Randolph is n black snndy Ion in, dry nnd free from excessive mud in rniny weather, an inconvenience from which but few towns in this section of the country are exempt. Uuilding stone, ol a superior quality, is found in abundance at tho western extremi ty of tlie lown silo, andean bo readily quar nod. Rich limestone beds abound in llio immediate neighborhood. Timber suitable for building and oftho largest growth, is willnn hair a mile ol the town. Two stipe ripr water power privileges, (superior for this section .of country) aro located within ono and a half miles ol tho river, directly back ot the town, and several ncvor.lmliiig springs of pure wntor, are within its limits. l lio shore ol tho river that stretches across tho Southern boundary of Randolph is for the most part bold, nnd at the western ex tromily affords an excellent natuaral land ing for steamboats of t lie largest size at any stage or water, and nil tho remaining por tion ortho bank oftho river, ia susceptible of such improvement, that it can readily be mado nt n small expense, both safe, and eli gible fiir the Innding of merchandize from steamboats.of any sire. The Pi'nsn empties into the Mississippi r,t the soutlien.-lern point of Randolph, and is navignblo for small steamboats a portion oftho year, a fur ns tho enst end ol the town. This creek is navigable several miles rrom its moiiil one half of the yenr for flat boats, and il nl' fords n safe and convenient haibor for freight boats, and will bo admirably calcu lated for boat building, ns materials fur their construction may be obtained in the inniediato vicinity. Besides the above named intrinsic advantages that Randolph enjoys for n commercial town, there are others of on external chnractor, which should not bo overlooked. In the first p'nee it is situated near the highest navigable point on the river, for steamboats of the largest class at the lowest stage of water ; and this circumstance alone, has n direct nnd important bearing on its commercial importance. It is nearly opposite, to Pur tngo do Sioux, a town on llie Missouri side ol, the river, a long established cm.-. ing place, heretofore esteemed superior to any point on the Mississippi, between the head of llie great American bottom and the Illi. noiti river; enjoying ferry privileges at nil .seasons of the year, unless obstructed hv the ice. It is directly opposite to that p int, where ihc two great rivers of the west ap proach each other within one and n half miles distance, and where it is had in con templation to cut n steamboat canal, tu unite the two streams, thus avoiding .some part of the most dangerous navigation ol the Missouri river; on examination of ilii. route, hnving nlrcady been made by n c iin petcul Engineer, and nn estimate had n Ihc expense of constructing n canal with n guard lock, on the Missouri river, which will not exceed eighty thousand dollar. In tho event or this grand operation bing brought lo a Micccs-lul if.-ue, Randolph must ot once fall an heir to a largo share of the trade of tho upimr Missouri, n stoamboats navigating tl at river will take this in preference to the natural and mure dangerous channel. It is so situated in re ference lo the adj. lining country, n-- to nil mit of the easy construction of o mi! rontl without a degree of inclination lluit will require n statioinry power; in this rcpeoi it is the inn..l eligible point above the A uicrieaii bottom. There is another eircuin stnnco which has a more direct and import ant bearing on the commercial prospects nf Randolph, than the one to which wo have just alluded, The government surveyor, in locating the northern rouio of Ihe gren' Cumberland or ua'ional ro.nd through Tilt nois lo Jefferson city, in Missouri, run In. lino to this point on the river, ns being the most eligible for crowing into Missouri, and thus nvoiding the extensive bottom Innd which stretches from the mouth of I he. Mis souri to Portngo de Sioux, nnd which is subject in a great tnetisure, to inundation, and which could not ho otherwise avoided should the crossing place bo lower down the river. When the national road shall be graded nnd opened, ns it necessarily will be in a few years, il will enter front street. I on the cast, and continue through its v hole length, to tho western extremity on ihei river landing, ns indicated in our Litlmg rnphic map, where it is intended to estab lish n Terry lo Poringe. This street has been so constructed in tho survey ofiho town, ns to embrace the line of the govern ment survey for the national road, nod is marked by n corresponding width, viz: t!0 feet, reference being had lothe plot ofsaid town referred to. above.
