HOW A GREAT RAILROAD WHEN PRO PERLY MANAGED SUCCEEDS. From the Harrisburg State Journal. We seed not tell the reader wh is ac quainted with the railroad developments of the country, that New York railroad interests for years controlled the passenger and trans portation business of the country. The cen tre of commercial wealth, the port of entry for foreign importation, aDd the financial headquarters of the continent, New York rail road men simply treated with contempt all efforts of other men who presumed to com pete with them in this business. They ruled railroad stocks just about as corruptly and as arrogantly as Napoleon ruled France, and just as that bloated imperial adventurer fell in disgrace and impotence, when be eame in direct contact with a rival whom he treated with contempt, so are railroad men fading away or being overleaped in a contest with the superior skill and honest and energetio management of the Pennsylva nia Railroad. This contest has been sharp, quick, and decisive. For years, the boast was on the side of New York the journalists of that city regaling themselves with "brag" of what they could and would do in this particular, but when the final con test came, it resulted in fixing the Pennsyl vania Railroad as the controller of that inte rest on the American continent. This is now unquestionably the situation of railroad affairs in this country. Pennsylvania is not only the Keystone of the Federal arch, but she is the key which unlocks the natural resources of the continent, affording means of travel and carriage for freight between all our great markets. From the Atlantio coast to the shores of the lakes; thence to the Gulf, and in a wide reach over the prai ries to the Paoifio Gcean, this mighty enter prise now holds supreme oontrol of our inter nal commerce, and before long will exercise a potent influence on the trade of the world. There is something sublime in the contempla tion of such a fact, for the reason that it proves what can be accomplished by fair en terprise and correct dealing. In restoring the trade and prosperity of the South, there is no doubt this road is now accomplish ing as much if not more than 'is done by acts of Congress and Ku-klux legislation, for the reason that, however just and essential a law may bo, in cases like this, it irritates and antagonizes, while a great enterprise which invites to rival ries, which stimulates industry in com munities, is always sure to mark its progress by prosperity. It is a singular fact, too, that the Pennsylvania Railroad, more than any other, was directly identified with our military operations to crush rebellion, Mr. Lincoln frequently expressing his re liance on this corporation as an efficient auxiliary in the work of defense and attack. By it Union armies, almost en masse, were hurled with the speed of lightning to annihi late Rebel hosts, and by it now, the regions once devastated by war are reinvigorated with trade, and brought in communication with markets to whioh they never before had ao cess. The same influenoe and results apply and will affect the ereat West in all direc tions. The produols of the prairies will ere long be carried to the markets of the world, with only one transhipment and by the same bill of lading. By the connections of this extending and consolidating lino, goods can be earned from our Eastern sea board to any part of the country where a railroad extends, . in the same car in which they were first loaded. Its links ex tended to every commercial mart. It holds in ' one mighty chain the rice, cotton, and tobacco fields of the South, the inexhaustible grain growing region of the West, the iron, coal, and oil of the North and the Middle States, and the manufacturing localities of the East. It is the veritable golden cirole set in iron bands a medium of communication so tremendous in its power and irresistible in its influence, as to make self-government and the prosperity of a free people no longer a mockery and a subject of ridicule among the aristocracies of the old world. And as long as such enterprises can be kept within the channel of their legitimate usefulness, whereby this road secured its power for suc cess, they will add annually to our pros perity as a people and greatness as a nation. THE CHICAGO ASSEMBLY. From the N. T. Tribune, Country ministers will be apt just now to regard with especial interest the reoent pro ceedines of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church convened at Chicago, Among other efforts to promote the spiritual health of the now reunited Churoh, the As sembly is endeavoring tor solve the knotty problem which has bo long vexed the souls of the elders, yclept "ministerial relief," to hit upon the nice rate of salary which will satisfy both congregation and clergyman the wsle milieu between a rank excess of filthy lucre for the priest, on the one hand, and starvation on the other. The expedient proposed is that each congregation shall pay, beside the usual salary to its minister, an an nual Dreniium for the assurance of his life; and the question is submitted whether the assurance should not take, in all cases, the farm of an annuity. Looking at the matter from a secular, ordi nary business point, this arrangement ap pears to us an uncertain effort by the Assem bly to dodge a very certain sense of wrong doing. 1 he salaries paid to ministers (out side of the large and wealthy towns) is, in all the religious sects, too small to enable a maa to support and educate a family without con etant, caiking care. The average salary aiiowea uy mm very denomination in ques tion to its boiLe missionaries does not reach $300 per annu. a dollar a day is poor wageB ior a iauonng man, whose tastes or habits call for little more than decent clothes, bed, and victuals, and eduoation for his chil dren sufficient to nv them to fill hon estly the position ne himself holds. Hut trial a man whose very work and position demand cmte aud mental power, and whose employers hr6 m08t rior, ous in exacting constant ana ir8a evidence that he possesses them, should . sentenced to a condition of penury in niiaait. ail!j pauperism in old age, simply because ne Ua, chosen to devote tnese tils best guts 0 nu Master's service, is an injustice which i 86. cular code of work and wages would dare to w a till. 1. l ! advocate, in almost an ennrcues mere is t larking sense of 6hame and delinquency in this matter, and in consequence an effort to atone by gifts, "bees," or donation parties, until finally, the old clergyman, no longer able to work, is put upon a superannuated list, and is looked upon as a burden and pen sioner ever after. Now, there is but one way of placing this subjeot in a oommon-sense'light. Either the servioe a clergyman renders his hearers in the cause of religion ought to be paid for in money, or it ought not. If not, then all sects Bhould adopt boldly the platform of the Friends and one branch of the Baptists, who hold that every man should have a trade or profession, and preaoh and pray as the spirit gives him utterance, without wages. But the objection urged to this system of non payment is that a man cannot praotice sur gery or shoemaking through the week, and keep his mind clear for the elimination and forcible urging of higher truth in Sunday's sermons. Wny tuen, 11 tne money paid is intended to relieve the preacher's mind from worldly cares, is it, as a rule, bo miserable a pittance that he is more tormented than any other man with anxiety from the beginning of his life's work to the end, and 'would be glad if the chance were allowed him to dose patients or cobble shoes, in order to help keep his mind at peace and body and soul together? Congregations are apt to argue that a man of God should set his affec tions on things above, not of this earth, and that he should not lay up for himself trea sures which moth and rust can corrupt. But the injunction is given to the man of God, as it appears to us; his parishioners are nowhere ordered to deny him the chance to use his money well or ill; to treat him as a person in a state of nonage or idiocy, of whom they are guardians. The teacher of God's word ought to be His faithfullest steward in doing good with money; at any rate, it is hardly Christian justice to restrict him of his just dues, under the presumption that he is the one man who will not apply them to the highest aims. The matter will never be set right until each denomination prescribes at least living salaries for its ministers, and in the case of poor churches neips to pay tnem. me tax ation levied by the pauperizing system of "superannuated lists," "help for aged and in firm pastors, etc., would more tnan Bulhce to accomplish this. The present movement will no doubt be nailed as true (Jnristian be nevolence; yet what man would insult his physician or lawyer by refusing to pay his fees and offering him instead, with or against his better judgment, a life assurance policy i When clergymen who do honest and good work are honestly paid for it, as mechanics or auy otlier prolessionai men are lor tneirs, they will give better service, aud be much less apt, we suspect, to "set their affections on tbijics below." It is when there is too lit tle enrtliiy treasure in the chest that wo are likely o think most of the moth and rust that can corrupt it. When we are sure of to morrow h lood tor wile and children, our thoughts are freer to rise to something higher. A PENNYWORTH OF ENGLISH RE PUBLICANISM. Frm the London Saturday Review. The English Republicans differ from their French fellows, or, as they prefer to call them, "brethren," in having no traditions The Trade-Unionists and tap-room orators of the manufacturing boroughs can scarcely re cognize Cromwell as a practical interpreter of their theory of the republic, nor can they ex pect the mass of Englishmen to accept Citi zen Tom l'aine or Oitizen Hunt as tne glorious ideals of the English politician of the future. Neither that English republio which actually did exist in the seventeenth century, nor that English republio whioh f ran tin ruinoritv wii"" ta hrinur inta axmt. ence a generation ago, can, ever innanie any great proportion ef the English people with the fire and passion which the recollections of 80 and 5)2 can always awaken in tne mass or workmen in French cities. The founders of our Republican clubs have neither political nor literary .fclneiisn names to conjure witn. A slight perusal of the English Republican organs by any person wno nas tne least acquaintance with French Republican jour nalism will bring into cruel prominence the deplorable poverty of our noisy little English political Beet in journalism, une cmei oasi noes of every xtepubiican meeting appears to be abuse of the London newspaper press. All the daily iournals. we are told, are in the hands of the middle classes, and the con sciences of their editors and contributors are regulated by the kings of the money market. A Republican club, or a branch of the Land and Labor League, almost lnvanaoiy meets in a nublic-houBe: so we judge from all the reports of their meetings m jteynoias jvews' .... 7 v'. ,.. paper. isut whether tne landlords grant tne regenerators of sooiety a tai&ing-room. Dear, and tobacco, for love oi tne coming uepaoiio, or whether the regenerators of sooiety spend something out of their wages for "the good of the house." the reports do not Bay. A Tobacco Parliament, as Mr. Carlyle would tell them, is at once so monarchical and bo Prussian an institution that we can scarcely believe that any true Republicans and lovers of the sacred nation of Franoe do their business amidst the fame of pipes. As the Queen is the subjeot of the first toast at the ordinary convivial meeting! in such places, the Republicans, possibly un able to liberate themselves completely from the genius loci, are generally inspired to make )he Queen tne subject oi tneir nrst resolution. She is the great robber or "tne people. Every Republican conceives that he is drink ing half a pint less beer, or smoking a screw less of tobacco, in consequence of her last robbery of the working-classes by the dowry of the Princess. Their next resolution runs parallel with the next toast of the less august societies who use the same room, and em braces all the royal family. The Prince of ales, thanks to the great crime of his Bis ter's dowry, has been let alone for the last few weeks; but the like indulgence could not be expected f er hisjehild. The English Re publicans appear to be indignant alike at his birth, at his title of "infant prince," aud at his funeral, whioh the penny-a liner of their organ chronicles, under the beading "Mummery at Sandringham," in language so revoltingly vile and brutal that quotation is impossible, They discern, however, a bright side in the same event; for, in another part of the news paper, under the heading "A Happy Re lease, the child's death is thus reoorded: "We have much satisfaction in announcing that the newly-born child of, the Prinoa and Princess of Wales died shortly after its birth, thus relieving the working-classes of Eng land from having to support hereafter another addition to the long roll of btate beggars they at present maintain." Our only apology for polluting our columns with this pieoe of ruffianism is that it is well the public should know what this "Republicanism" aotually is, as represented by its accredited and favourite oieau. A set of persona who call themselves the Universal Republicans are, it seems, ens Vmer of the Lord Clyde Tavern, Yauxhall Gardens they might surely find some less aristocratic sign somewhere in the borough of Laiubeth and address each other at their meeting as "citizea." Their ambition to receive some sort of title is evidently as great as their eagerness to take the titles of other Englishmen away. . The reporter, it appears, knows how to honor them: "The Chairman, Citizen Patrick Iiynes, opened the meeting with an address on the principles of Repub licanism, and their recent development in Great Britain. He was followed by Citizens Tainish, Wood, Southam, Rinnaird, and others. Citizen Southam, Secretary of the Republican League, stated, etc. etc. Whether It be a grand aggregate meeting of "the peo ple of London in Hyde Park, or the thin symposium in a beer-house parlor of a branch of the Land and Labor League, of the "Universal Republican," or of a local Repub lican club, the editors of the liberal news papers are freely blackened with the same filthy brush which is applied to the Queen, the royal family, the House of Lords, aud the House of Commons of course with the ex ception of Mr. Peter Taylor, Mr. Fawcett, and Sir C. Dilke, who has just received a speoial vote of thanks from Trafalgar Square. All past flattery of the mob by Parliament-men or press-men is to count for nothing. I he preps, however, like the Parliament, has its Abdiels. In each case the faithful are num bered by three. The Land and Labor League, whieh sent its vote of thanks to the three good men in the House of Commons, has also sent from the Cock and Castle, Elizabeth street, Hackney road, a vote of thanks to the three good newspapers, "Reynolds' Newspaper, Na tional Reformer, and Eastern 1'ost, for the publicity given to the Democratic move ment." The Cock and Castle is bo little known to fame that a meeting held there must needs have publicity "given" to it, for it can have none by any other means. (Jlerk- enwell Green, which shares with Hyde Park and Trafalgar Square the honor of being one of the three central meeting-places of "the people," has not been behind the rest in put ting its imprimatur upon the penny Kepub lican organ. It passed this resolution: This meeting, composed of bona fule workingmen of London, hereby expresses its abhorrence at the abominable misrepre sentation of the great xtepubiican events in Paris during the past few days by the London press, with a few honorable exceptions, Rey nolds Jxcicupaper being one. We have looked through Reynolds' Newspaper for foar weeks, and do not una that it keeps a special correspondent at raris to give the true re presentation of events; it merely reprints extracts from the "misrepresentations" of the daily "caitiffs of the press." We should like to get from Citizen Murray, the author of this resolution, the Republican ineaiiiDg of the word "caitiff," and to learn whether he adopted it from the haro of a tragedy at a oheap theatre, or from one of those penny-number romances of which Mr. Reynolds has been bo profuse an author and publisher. Ii is evident from the resold tions of the Republican clubs that Reynolds' Newspaper holds the highest place amongst the pure Republican journals. The ninth number of "the Republican, conducted by men of the canaille class," is advertised; but its conductors think that it requires tho fol lowing testimonial: "A cheap and clever journal." Reynolds Newspaper. Mr. Ed ward Rymer writes from Knarsbro Dyke, Barnsley, to the editor: "We are about to form a Republican olub here in Womb well. about four miles from Barnsley, where we meet every week to read Reynolds , and dis cuss the politics of the world." Citizen Rymer seems to imagine that the mere read ing of Reynolds' is as heroio and dangerous an aot in this age in Yorkshire, as the read log of the Uiblo has been in certain the Book of Common Prayer in certain others, The great inquisitor Gladstone is supposed by the citizen to have his eye fixed upon this sacred germ of the Commune of Barnsley: for after a talk about the priestly tyrants who fatten upon his industry by which he may mean the pence he paid at the National School for learning to read he goes on to declare, with the spirit of a martyr, "We are deter mined to form our club, whether Gladstone will or not.' Many people would be glad to believe that there was some foundation for Citizen Rymer's very gratuitous assumption that he and his like have an enemy in the Prime Minister. It is certain that this distinguished organ of the people is unknown except by name to the mass of Englishmen. It did indeed gain a transient flash of notoriety a short time ago by the prurient exactness with which it re corded the unclean details of a certain law case. We should like to knew if the handful of regenerators of the social system who read it together at Womb well demand, as "the people," to have this sort of thing provided for them, if they do, it is certain that Republican purism in politics does not in the least involve a corresponding purism in private tastes and in social life. Indeed, if we may judge by the number of ' suspi ciously suggestive advertisements which tn organ of English Republicanism contains, it involves the very reverse. There are adver. tisements in Reynolds' Newspaper too filthy to be reprinted in any decent journal. . Ad vertisers are presumed to be wary and know ing men, and a practised advertiser will not pay for the insertion of notices of his wares in any journal unless he thinks it will come under the eyes of persons who are likely to become purchasers. Republicans who are always looking for the year One are naturally credulous and gullible persons; hence we are not surprised to find a great many quack advertisements in their organ, or to see that the statesmen of the future are entreated to invest eighteen stamps in "The Magio Mirror," the marvel of the age. As the Lnglish Kepublican under takes to cure every disease of the State, he may possess some secret sympathy with those quacks who have a specific for every disease of the body. In the "Notices to Correspon dents" we find the following: "A Republi can. Not being a qualified praotitioner, you cannot charge, Possibly the mere fact of being a Republican fits a man for any post; if he can rule the State, if he can command the army, he can heal diseases. It seems, too, that not only royal, aristocratic and sacerdotal tyrants, but medical tyrants also, have to be brought down to , their proper level. Hence it is, we presume, that the Re publican organ chronicles the triumphal pro gress from Derby gaol of a martyr of the Anti-Vaccination League. The League led him through the town at the tail of a band of music, in reward for his noble pre ference of fourteen days imprisonment to submission to the cruel laws of a medical oligarchy. As "several thousands of pounds, all of which will coma out of the people pockets," are to be spent in fitting out a yacht for the Princess Louise and the Mar- .quia of Lome, so the people's own doctors are robbed by the unjust privileges granted by a class Government to medioal practi tioners. There was an advertiser in West minster some time sinoe (and he may be there still) who combined in his own person free-trade in doctoring and English Repub licanism. His premises were placarded with recommendations of his medicines and at tacks upon the Constitution of the State. Persons who went to buy physio for their bodily corruptions were enlightened about the corruption of the body politic and the kind of physio it needed. Although we do not wonder that advertisers should take for granted that people who buy Reynolds' Nempajier have a good deal of credulity, we are a little surprised by the evi- dent belief of other advertisers that English Republicans are full of personal vanity. "Captain Stafford (U. S. ) heads this adver tisement, "To Short Persons." He possesses a remarkable physiological disoovery by means of which he can give to the little pa triot that "increase in height and symmetry of figure" which a Republican ought to have if be ought to have no superiors. Any Re publican who intends to submit to the old system of marriage to One wife can have an exact portrait of that wife, and the date at which he will marry her, if he will send thir teen stamps to a certain citizen. More than one advertiser offers to provide English Re publicans with ''luxuriant whiskers and moustaches," or "moustachios" as one firm persists in calling them. A certain citizen has "a formula which guarantees whiskers. etc., to crow heavily in six weeks to the smoothest faoe without injuring the skin." As bo large a proportion of the English re publicans are mere boys, there must probably be some demand ior this formula. The specialty of these Republicans, how ever, in the evident estimation of a still greater number of advertisers, is neither cre dulity nor vanity. There is a certain disrepu table class of merchants who have for sale the most beastly and disgusting wares whioh are ever on ered for money, it is perhaps only through the long prevalence ef an anti-Republi, can morality that they are reckoned disrepn table. Whatever the English Republicans may really think of them, the owners of filthy books and filthy piotures have evidently great faith in the English Republicans; for they go on advertising in the organ of English Re publicanism week after week. The nation which is the source of all political purity ap pears to' be the source also of all the impure books and plates offered to English Republi cans. Cartes de visite at 80s. per dozen are recommended as "French;" the beautiful set of richly-colored prints are "French livery week the Jngusn republicans are invited to buy "Paris by Night." This guido to the Holy City of the new moral or immoral world "contains a description of all the casinos, cafes chantants, tmddemi-inonde; a complete epitome of everything connecte 1 with gay life in Paris." The advertisers also presume that there is a great demand amongst English Republicans for some insight into the life of convents. No less than three books on the Mysteries of Convents are advertised in the last number, one of them bearing a suggestive title which we forbear from trau scribing. Some of these merohauts appear to have in the background a library of beastli ness for English Republicans to draw upon, as thoy oner to forward catalogues of books and prints for a few stamps. The most sur prising thing, considering the exponsivenes of Borne of theRo wares, is where th9 Republi, cans can find the money to bny them. The Queen, the aristocracy, And the priesthood are every moment robbing thorn of the very necessaries of life there is scarcely a page ot their organ ever printed on whiu this statement does not occur and yet "the people are invited to give half a crown for one filthy picture. We presume that the ad vertisers place their hopes in the future, aud believe that when the year One has come, and "the people" receive their own hard-earned property, now held back from them by the ' my, lurf Will 11V 1U iuuu- sands to the dingy ehops where piles of nasty photographs, pictures, and books are being stored up for them. On the whole, we can only come to the conclusion that the foulest vices which democratic envy ever imputed to "corrupt and effete oligarchies" have nowhere better patrons than in the new political sect of English "working-olass Republicans."
