ossession of the whole north of the peninsula as of a derelict country; yet the Miamis occupied its southern moiety, and their principal mission was founded by Allouez on the banks of the St. Joseph, within the present state of Michigan. The Illinois were kindred to the Miamis, and their country lay between the Wabash, the Ohio, and the Mississippi. Marquette found a village of them on the Des Moines, but its occupants soon withdrew to the east of the Mississippi; and Kaskaskia, Cahokia, Peoria, still preserve the names of the principal bands, of which the original strength has been greatly exaggerated. The vague tales of a considerable population vanished before the accurate observation of the missionaries, who found in the wide wilderness of Illinois Marest Compare Hennepin, Tonti Joutel scarcely three or four villages.

Hon. Wm. Kellogg and his constituents. Chicago,Feb. 22.--A convention was held at Peoria to-day to express the opinion of the Republicans of the Fourth Congressional District in regard to the course of their representative in Congress, Hon. Wm. Kellogg. The resolutions adopted declare that their principles are the same as before the election; express love for the Union, and declare that the Union must be maintained at all hazards. The fourth resolution says that we enter our decided protest against the resolutions offered by Hon. William Kellogg, our Representative in Congress, and we earnestly urge him to an unfaltering support of Republican principles as enunciated in the Chicago platform. A motion to amend this resolution by adding "that if he cannot do so it is his duty to re-sign," was lost by years 79, nays 88. Some of the delegates did not vote upon this motion. The fourth resolution was their adopted unanimously. Resolutions complimentary to Sena
International Kindness. --In the northern portion of Mississippi the people are suffering for the want of food. In Smith county the Court appropriated $5,000, and sent an agent to Illinois to purchase corn. Upon his arrival in that State the people gave him supplies for nothing, Springfield contributing 13,000 bushels, Jacksonville 10,000 bushels, and Peoria 2,000 bushels.
A Strange Elopement. --A woman aged 50 years, and the mother of five children, recently eloped from Iowa with the nephew of her husband. The couple went to Peoria, and took up their abode on the opposite side of the river.
The two parties at the North. --The peace and war parties at the North are daily becoming more violent and there is a fair prospect that they will seen come to an open collision. As a specimen of the bitterness with which each prosecutes its cause we make from a late paper the following quotations, the first from a speech made by William Kellogg, of Peoria, a few days since, at Chicago: "Would that I could lift to Heaven the hands of those thousands which I see before me and have an oath registered there that never, never, while a rebel lives, or a foot of treasonable soil is to be found, shall this war cease, and that it shall be prosecuted with all the vigor and all the terrible means at our disposal, until the entire Union shall be restored." "Administer it," "administer it," shouted scores of voices. "Then life up your hands," said Judge Kellogg, and, bending down, he ran his eyes over the vast crowd, "I can see no Copperheads," he shouted, and then, amid impress
Gottachalk, Brignoll, and Cordier were to give concerts in the following named places in Illinois: Alton, December 21st; Springfield, December 24th; Peoria, December 26th.
e speech of Cris. Kribben was a violent secession one, such as the Hon. Cris would find it unhealthy to deliver at his home in St. Louis. He took the bold ground that the war was prima facie wrong, and that the Federal Government had no power and no right to coerce a State. It was such a speech a should have caused the ears of every Democrat hearing it to tingle with shame for listening to a moral traitor. Altogether the tenor of the assemblage was much more conservative than that at Peoria on the 3d. In point of numbers, I should estimate it at about four thousand. Everything passed off in quiet so far as known. I send a brief synopsis of the resolutions passed, to wit: Resolution first re-affirms the devotion of the Democracy to the Constitution and Union, and also to the Kentucky and Virginia resolutions of 1798 and 1799; further, that the Democracy of Illinois reiterate and adopt the resolutions of the Democratic State Convention of January, 1861, which disapproves
