W 11 NARROW-GAUGE RAILROADS.
Frm tht K. T. Bnn.
Many of onr readers doubtless remember
the great oontest waged in England twenty
years or more ago over what were then called
respectively the broad and narrow gauges
for railroads. The broad-gauge roads were
i built with their rails nix and seven feet apart,
while the narrow-gauge roads, following the
ordinary width of wagons in use when rail-
, roads were .first introduced, had them but
four feet 8 J inches apart. Inasmuch as cars
and locomotives adapted to the one gauge
could not be used on the other, there could
be no transfer of trains from one to the other,
and consequently it was important, in order
to avoid unloading and loading again at con
necting points, that as far as possible one of
the two gauges should give way to the other.
The result was that the narrow gauge was
victorious, notwithstanding the strenuous
opposition of great engineers, such as the
late lamented Brunei; and now, with slight
variations, it prevails almost universally
wherever railroads ate known.
Latterly, however, a new rival to this old
narrow gauge has arisen in the form of a
still narrower one. The experiment has been
tried in Europe of constructing railroads with
their rails as clone together as one foot 11$
inches, and from that np to three feet, and
the resnlts have been so encouraging as to
secure for this principle of extreme narrow
cess many advooates among both engineers
' and capitalists. Besides those in nse in Eu
rope, a road with a gauge of 2 J feet has been
for some time in operation near Cleveland,
' Ohio; and one 875 miles long, from Denver
in Colorado Territory to and along the Rio
Grande river to El Paso, on the Mexican
boundary, is now building with a gauge of
three feet. The English Government in
India, after spending millions in building
roads of the old gauge, have adopted three
feet three inches as the standard gauge for
the whole Indian railway system. Indeed, it
is confidently predicted that the new gauge
will eventually drive the old one out of use
for all but passenger traffic.
The advantage claimed for the new gauge
is the important one of vastly greater cheap
ness. In mountainous regions, especially,
it has been shown that a road of two feet
gauge can be built for one-eighth of the cost
af a road of four feet eight and a half inches
gauge. This is owing both to the diminished
width required for cuttings, embankments,
and bridges, and to the faot that much
sharper curves are practicable, permitting the
road to follow more nearly the natural con
formation of the country. On level plains,
even, the cost is only one-half; so that the
same expenditure of money will baild there
two miles of the new gauge for one of the
- old. The same difference extends, of course,
' to the locomotives and cars.
Furthermore, this saving does not stop
with the construction and equipment of the
road, but is found in its operation. It is well
known to persons conversant with railroad
affairs that one of the most serioas causes of
expense in transporting both freight and
passengers on railroads, is the excessive
weight of the cars as compared with the loads
they carry. In freight trains, for every ton
- of paving weight two tons of non-paying or
dead weight have to be moved, in the form
of the iron and timber of which the cars are
composed; while in passenger trains the pro
portion of paying weight to dead
weight is a? twenty-nine to one. On
the new narrow gauge roads all this is
reversed. Only one ton of dead weight has
to be moved for three tons of paying weight,
and the running expenses are reduced accord
ingly. To put the comparison in a more
striking light, the London and Northwestern
Railway, with a gauge of four feet 8i inches,
moves one hundred and sixty million tons
weight annually, of which but seventeen mil
lions pay; while the Festiniog Railway, in
Wales, with a gauge of one foot llj inches,
moves two hundred and fifty thousand tons
annually, of which one hundred and seventy
five thousand pay. That is, in the former
case the gross weight carried is to the paying
weight as nine to one, while in the latter it is
as ten to Beven.
Should these results be verified by the
workintr of the Denver and Rio Grande
Road, it would seem that a new era in rail
road building is opening upon us. If by
reducing the gauge railroads can be built
which will answer every praotioal purpose for
$7000 per mile, instead ef $20,000, and
after they are built can be run for one-third
the cost ef roads of the present usual gauge,
we may look for a ramification of traoks
over the entire country compared with
which those now in existenoe will be as
MR. BOUTWELL'S CURRENCY MUD
DLING. . From tU K. Y. World.
The present condition of our currency is
a disgrace to a civilized community. The
legal-tender currency of the country is the
greenbacks or Government paper money.
These constitute our present standard of
value they form our par. They are, bow
ever, but the smallest part of our circulat
ing medium; for although there are tf."0
millions of greenbacks in existence and only
320 millions of our other paper money,
national bank notes, yet a large part of 3.0
millions of greenbacks are held as bank and
Treasury reserve and do not enter into circula
tion, so that there are about three dollars of
national bank currency for every two dollars
of greenback currency. This bank currency
. is issued by the national bank monopoly, who
charge the people annually tvrenty millions
or more for the service thus rendered, and
who in return accept the obligation to redeem
their issues in greenbacks whenever pre
sented. This obligation they fail to comply
with. For. although thev do not technically
refuse to redeem their notes when presented,
they have succeeded in defeating all legal or
practical provision for presenting them, and
it is to-day impossible to enforce the obliga
tion of the banks to redeem their notes in
greenbacks. Bo great, however, has been the
accumulation of these irredeemable national
bank notes in this city that holders who
needed the greenbacks in exohange for them
have sold or exohanged them at a loss of one
eighth to one-quarter per cent, and that large
amounts of them are reported to be still held
here and not offered for sale or exchange
from fear of creating a further depreciation.
This circumstance in itself is worthy of seri
ous consideration, and should attract publio
attention to the widening evils of the bank
Bat the mere depreciation of this national
bank currency to the extent of one-quarter or
' even one half per cent, is a slight evil com.
. pared to the fatuity of the Treasury Depart
ment, which, in order to prevent a further
depreciation of thia already depreciated cur-
reney, actually aewpts it at par In its deal
ings with the public, and seeks to elevate it
to the positien of the trae government cur
rency of the country. A more perverse or
purblind action on the part of a government
it is difficult to conceive, or one mora likely
to end in confusion and disaster. - The prices
of gold and government bonds on the titook
Exchange are quoted in greenback currency.
In the dealings with the Treasury they are
quoted in national bank currency, ana by
means of this artificial contrivance the
publio are prevented from learning what the
extent of the depreciation really is, and the
banks are actually protected against the de
mands of the holders to have their notes re
deemed. And thin, we shall probaUy be toM
by the radical monopolist bank ring, is a
step towards specie payments.
To the two paper currencies thus existing
the intelligent Treasury management has
within the last few days added another ele
ment of confusion. According to the last
debt statement the Treasury held in its vaults
10 millions of' gold, of which 20 millions
belonged to private citizens, who had nomi
nally deposited it in the Treasury. In reality
this deposit is a mere fiction. No one, ex
cept in very rare instances, ever deposits gold
coin in the Treasury. The truth is that the
Treasury, instead of payinfjjont gold coin to
its creditors, pays out the so-called certificates
of deposit, which are everywhere accepted in
preference to the coin, because of their
greater convenience, and because every one
believes that the coin is immediately obtaina
ble for them. Ordinarily these are
never presented . for redemption.
They are only presented for redemp
tion when the coin is wanted for export,
and when so presented the Treasury coolly
proposes to redeem them in small worn coin,
which is worth from three-eighths to one per
cent, less than double eagles. Now, it is very
well for journals like the limes, eager de
fenders of the worst bank and Treasury tricks,
to say that the holders of these certificates are
only entitled to gold coin, and that dollar
pieces are gold coin the same as double
eagles. But no pettifogging can twist the fact
that the American gold coin of commeroe is
the doable eagle, and that the other smaller
coins are not and never have been considered
anything else but small change. To pretend
that the Treasury is justified on any such plea
as that in paying its coin certificates in small
change is preposterous. Unquestionably it is
a mere pretense. The true reason is that they
have not the double eagles that, like all
other radical boasts, this immense Treasury
coin balance is a sham, and constats, not of
merchantable coin, but of small change,
worth probably fully ono per cent, less than
it is represented to be. The Mint officers
have for the last ten years gone on in
a stupid, mechanical way coining, at an
enormous expense to the country, eagles and
half-eagles and quarter-eagles and dollar
pieces and double-eagles, all in the Bame
proportion as before the war. The double
eagles have been steadily exported, and the
small coin has wandered steadily into the
Sub-Treasury, to drive the coin clerks despe
rate and further muddle our exchanges ; and
now the Treasury is full of a miscellaneous
mass of small coin, useless for all practical
purposes, and worth about two per cent, less
than if it were still in its original shape of
By these ingenious contrivances we have
to-day the worst currency muddle that the
country has ever seen. We have four dis
1. Greenbacks at par.
2. National bank notes at per cent, dis
count. 3. Treasury gold certificates at 11 J per
4. Real gold at 12 per cent, premium.
This first is the currency of the people; the
Becond the currency of the Treasury; the
third is the currency of the Gold Exchange;
and the fourth the currency of commerce.
Almost every transaction made to-day through
out the United States involves directly or in
directly a transfer from one to the other of
these currencies, and everywhere suoh trans
fer involves an expense to the buyer and
Beller, of which the whole benefit goes to the
few who foreknow the daily shape of Mr.
Boutwell's ignorant incompetency.
REPUBLICAN OPINION IN PENNSYL
From Ihe A T. Times.
Several Republican newspapers in this
State are in the habit ef making virulent
attacks on the administration of President
Grant. Some of these attacks are manifestly
prompted by the corrupt Democrats, who can
nse money in more ways man one. uav- not
withstanding all these attempts, the great
mass of Republicans refuse to be led by those
who seek to deliver the nation into the hands
of the Democratic party. The electoral
eolieoe of Pennsylvania is Beoond
in importance only to New York,
and exerts equal influence on the
formation of political opinions. Indeed, the
influence of Pennsylvania on Repubhoan
opinion is even greater than that of New
York. The Republican State Convention
which was held at Harrisburg on the 18th
"That the administration of President Grant
meets the full approval or the Republican party of
Pennsylvania. Ills tlnanclal policy, by which the
national debt is steadily reduced; the reduotlon la
exm-ndltures of the Government; honest collection
nf the revenues: his fidelity to the principle o
human rights, through which the liberty of all is to
be secured la every part of the land: his loyalty to
the neoole. In having no policy to enforce a?alnst
their will, and the Bootless integrity of bia adiuiuls
I ration, merit the continued confidence of the
American nuome. ana point to mm as u uuureu
leader of our party now, and a proper standard
hMrpr of the Kenublican nartv In 187-i."
The Republican party of Pennsylvania does
not think it too early to discuss tne question
of the next Presidency, and the above resolu
tion is a significant reply to the fault-finders
The administration of General Urant 19 em
chaticallv anDroved. and the President him
self is named as the choice of the Republicans
of Pennsylvania in 1872. The convention
had a more important duty to perform than
the nomination of State officers. Its members
felt that the result in Pennsylvania next fall
would have a very considerable influence on
the canvass of 1872, and wisely resolved not
to allow their opinions to remain doubtful.
The Presidential Buooesnion is always a
troubled question in the State canvass which
immediately precedes the national nominating
convention. The Republicans of Pennsyl
vania have not avoided the issu9, bat have
chosen to express unreserved confidence in
General Grant. This will cause another
change in the programme of the Herald.
Previous to the Republican National Con
vention of 1801, the same factious opposition
which is now being made to the administra
tion of President Grant was directed agimt
Mr. Lincoln. Then, as now, it was oonnnad
to a comparatively limited section of the
party. When the point came to be deoidod,
the party felt that a change at that important
crisis would ereatlv endanger, if not destroy,
the objects it had at heart, and Mr. Linoola
was re-elected. Since then, the Rebellion
has been conquered, and the Union restored,
but the danger has not wholly passed away.
That the Union was not defitrojed, and that
ihe country hi now at peace, ar resnlts wholly
due to the republican party. The restoration
ef the Union was jeopardized for the moment
by the course taken by Andrew Johnson. Gen
Grant, commander of the army and acting
Secretary of War, lent efficient aid to Con
gress in thwarting the plans cf President
Johnson. With the lessons of those few
weeks deeply impressed on his mind, Gene
ral Grant came to the Presidency declaring
that he had no policy io enforce against the
will of the people. His acts have proved that
this declaration was earnestly made, and the
peoplo at large, although qoiet and nnexcited,
cordially approve of his offorts in their be
half. The resolution of the Pennsylvania
convention speaks the sentiment of the whole
party when It affirms that there is to-day no
man more entitled to the confidence of the
whole conntry than President Grant. Those
who find fault with his policy, which the Re
publicans of Pennsylvania say is that of the
people, do not suggest a better one; and it
will puzzle thorn to nnd a man who is, upon
the whole, more deserving of support and en
couragement than the present incumbent of
SOLDIERS AND PRESIDENTS.
From Harprr't Weekly (Edited by O. W. Curtla.)
It is amusing to observe that every con
spicuous man who is supposed to be popular,
and who bovs or does something opposed to
the Republican policy, is instantly exalted as
a Democratic candidate for the Presidency.
A man who yesterday was not thought of in
that view, to-day criticises some aotion or
word of the dominant party, and for that
reason, without the slightest regard to his
character or antecedents, is vociferously
saluted as the coming man. The
first impression is one of profound contempt
for those who shout, and the seoond one of
shame that it should be considered possible
to select a chief magistrate for such a reason.
The present President of the United States
is a soldier whose incomparable services in
the field were enhanced by his simplicity, in
tegrity, and modesty. Elected to the Presi
dency totally inexperienced in the conduct of
political affairs, and at a time of the most
bitter agitation, the consequence of civil war,
he has shown no disposition whatever to for
get his duty as a loyal citizen and civil magis
trate; and the American people to-day trust
the honorable, patriotic fidelity of General
Grant as much as they trusted that of Gene
ral Washington or. Mr. Lincoln. No more
than they has he shown any impatience of the
peaceful processes cf law, nor in his Cabinet
has be thought fit to surround himself with
military associates. Indeed, General Grant is
another illustration of the fact that in a re
public like this signal military success and
consequent political elevation do not destroy
the loyalty of an honest citizen to the sacred
conditions of free popular government.
Yet he has been denounced as a possible
nsurper,as a chief designing to retain power by
force. The Democrat jo candidate for the Vice
Presidency in 18G8 bade the country beware
of seating an emperor in the White House,
and insinuated that General Grant might use
the army to subvert the Government. Unfor
tunately for the force of his warning, this
Democratic candidate was the very gentleman
wno naa obtained nis nomination npon the
ground of a letter in whioh he declared that
certain constitutional amendments and laws
ought to be annulled by the army. His de
nunciations and warnings were, therefore,, ex
quisitely ludicrous. And recently a Demo
cratic paper rejoices in the probable ratifica
tion of tne English treaty, because if the
breach is not healed now there may be war;
and if there is war this ferocious butcher,
Grant, will command the army. and. it he
commands the army, a long good-by to Ame
rican liberty ! the fact being that because he
commanded tne army, tne world bade a last
good night to American slavery.
And now a very dinerent person, a soldier
whose brilliant service and imperious wilful
ness are equally known General Sherman
has apparently made a speech certainly
might have made a speeoh it which he says
that it was generally conceded by the soldiers
of both armies, at the close of the war, that if
all questions had been rei erred to the armies
they would cave been peaoeably settled. That
is his sincere faith. General Sherman is an
ardent soldier. He is impatient of all civil
methods. He thinks that his agreement with
General Joe Johnston otght to have been the
basis of reconstruction. ; Congress is a very
distasteful body to mm. i Liaw is a delay, ilis
genius, his temperament, his methods, his
traditions, are exclusively military. And this
is the gentleman who, laving expressed dis
satisfaction witn tne i.u-&iux bill, is now
strenuously nrged as at admirable President
by those who have rsnoorously denounoed
General Grant as a dangerous President be
cause of his military habits and feelings.
The fact is interesting, as illustrative of
the oondition of those who in their general
jealousy of Republictn ascendency strike at
it wildly and blindly, It is very plain that
if General Grant is to be set aside by a
Democrat, it must, be npon some other
policy than any which the Democrats have
yet announced; an if by a Republican,
only by some one1 who can more closely
unite the party. Int of all the charges
made against the President none is more
absurd than that he inclines nnduly to
military methods. I The lackeys of Blavery
during the war, am since the war, find a
great deal of cojafort in calling him
dopged military butcher, as they do in de
scribing the late tmdera in human flesh and
blood as Christian Soldiers and gentlemen.
But they beat the dr. Whatever the people
of the United State may think of General
Grant, they do not, fear him as a possible
