NILES WEEKLY REGISTER 24 (4/5/1823):71 -- <The wilderness is conquered, and the busy hum of industry has succeeded the whoop of the wild inhabitant of the woods. By the power of steam, the city of New Orleans seems as if in the neigborhood of the Falls of St. Anthony, and the Saut de St. Marie is about to be within the common range of the trade of New York. The Rocky mountains are as if in view at St. Louis; and St. Louis that seemed as the uttermost point west, now in free communication with Baltimore has opened a trade with the internal provinces of Mexico! A settlement at the mouth of the COLUMBIA has been seriously advocated in congress, and will soon be made under the sanction of government; and, in a few years, we may expect that some persons THERE, feeling themselbes too much crowded, like "Leather Stocking" in the "Pioneers," will seek a country more WEST -- Japan, perhaps, if good hunting could be expected therein! The history of the famous col. Boone is the history of thousands of his countrymen.>
