Secession Movement.
.Since opr lut issae a number of important
mores havebeen.made on the Secession ohess-
Chnrleeton ,en 4 a
few of which we briefly .recount as (oilobs
despatches were received
stating -that Hiy. Anderson

iroops to Fort- Snmter, which commands the
harborbf'Charleston. The movement, which
was without authority from the President or
Secretary of War,Rested intense excitement in
Charleston, several military cmpanies were or
dered outanda collision wasexpdcteji, hot'did
notoocor. -On the 28th, Hie military,of Charles
ton, took possession of Fort Moultrie end Castle
Pinckney, hut they are of little value to them
under, present circumstances. . On the same day
the Palmetto flog was raised oyer the Custom
House and Post Office in Charleston, and the
Convention authorized the Governor to receive
embassadors, consuls agents from foreign
powers. Now,,if South Carolina don’t get,out
oftthei.Uqion, these proceedings, will be a dark
blot bn the pages of her State history.
While ibe above was being transacted at
Charleston, the three Commissioners appointed'
toWait upon the President, and make arrange
ments about the U. Si property which lies with
in the State of South Carolina, were in Wash
ington, seeking to have a -conference with the
President. One despatch' states that the Pres
ident refused to receive them except as citizens
of the United StatesV The movement of Maj
Anderson was discussed and' much condemned
by the secessionists and the Secretary of AY nr,
and Mr. Floyd, who b a secessionist, demanded
of the President that for tliis act he should be
recalled. The .Union members of the Cabinet,
flcottl and all the -Northern members, of
botU E[ouB6 of Congress opposed his being re
called, whereupon Mr. Floyd tendered his res

Railroad Compant. —A mooting k>f tb# stock*
holders of thjs Company was,
phiaonthe 27th nit, to take aottdnonlhe ad*
epptance or rejection of the contract fd*. a more
permanent lease of their Road to the Pennsyl
vania Bail Road Company. Thera was!# large
attendance of share holders. By IhsnfijJtion of
the Chairman the roll er*? called, inrorder to
ascertain ifn majoritjr^Of. the' Bteokwas repre
sented. This operation entailed a great expen
diture of time. It-waa finally ascertained that
tbere'«ein4Moo Claires aemt of
21,742, the whole number of shares. This be
ing more than a quorum of the stock, "the meet
ing proceeded to business. Mr. Baker, the
President of the Company, read the;eontraet
made with the'Pennsylvania Railroad Company
fortbe rane wal4»t-the Jeaae of the Harrisburg
and. Lancaster Bailroad tp tl l6 Pennsylvania
Railroad. The substance of the contract is that
thb organisation of-'the i Harrisburg Company
BhaUbemaintained.and -the' lease be made for <
nine hundred and-oinetyfnine years; .the. Pen
nsylvania Railroad Company mantaining the road
and paying the interest on the funded debt, and
;BOTon ,per cent, per .annum on the stock. As
the cost of the 'Harrisburg Railroad is some
$96,000 greater than the .amount represented
by the existing. numbor of shares. the Harris
burg Railroad Company Is to be allowed to is
jmfr. nineteen hundred shares of new stock, thus
making the number of: shares equal the cost-of
the work, and on this increased capital the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company! will payseven
per cent., which is eqaal to about seven and
six-tenths per cent, per annum, on the present
number of shares. The new stoCk to he issued
is a fraction less than one tp eleven. The profits
since the last dividend in October are to be di
vided among stockholders; and the dividend
periods, hereafter, are; to be in .January and
July, instead,of April and October. Attached
to the contract was a resolution authorizing the
Board of Directors to consumate the contract
and the lease to the Pennsylvania Railroad Com
pany. A. motion was made that the resolution
be adopted., After a protracted and animated
I discussion, the vote was taken viva voee, on the
ratification of tho contract, and it was almost
unanimously adopted. .Several gentlemen ob
jected ,to taking the, vote; in this /way, and Mr.
TbomasS. Smith called for a stock vote. The
Secretary stated bis belief that under the charter
of the company a stock vote was not necessary
where there was a clear majority of stock repre
sented at the meeting. - The chairman announ
ced that the question, was decided in the affirm
ative. There being much objection to a viva
voee vote in settlepoenl of the question, a stock
vote was called and ordered. The majority in
favor of ratifying the contract was about ten
thousand shares. The Pennsylvania Central
Company will now lake control of the Harris
burg and Lancaster road, causing an entire
change of programme,, and the dismissal of the

Ten Years or Railroading in the United
States.— The world has probably never, wit-!
nessed, in any department of' industrial and
mechanical developemenjtj such an extraordi
nary phenomenon as that of. railroad construc
tion in the United States,- during the lost ten
years. Railroading had commenced long be
fore! but the larger portion of the immense num
ber and magnitude of railroads in this country,
has been made between 1850 and 1860, and al
most altogether between 1850 and 1857. To
show this clearly and strikingly, wo will present
•the number and length of railroads, in each
Stale, in each of .the years 1850 and 1860, as
near as wo con ascertain them. The following

township, was burned to .the ground, together
with all its contents, embracing beds f bedding,
clothing; provisions', &o;, &o. The family were
all at Churoh at tbi|B time of the occurrence, and
it is supposed the fire originated" 1 from a spark
falling on the roof. Mr Harpster is a poor man

Capture or a Fox bt a Locomotive.— One

Creek, Huntingdon county, the engineer of the
No. 73, hauling one of the stock traius, discov
ered a fox coming down the embankment upon
tbe track. The engineer, being M cunning as
Reynard is said to be, “ shut off,” and watched
his opportunity until the fox should, attempt to
cross the track in front of the engine, wben/he
would put on steam and capture him. this
design he was so far successful as to cripple the
animal. The fireman jumped off with/a view of
getting tbe game alive, bat Mr. Reynard show
ed fight, and bad to be killed bejrore he would
allow iiimsolf to be captured. The skin of the
animal, we understand, is to be stuffed, and to

I lrffle Miard AldnuMd
Sang this last dirge or the fast dying y€ar.
I’d an engagement when midnight same 'round,
Up there, by “ Old Father Time to be found: V
That he’d meet mo there as in dayafbf yore;
And as ever would have, "the Carrier boy
Go forth in tlw morn, with his, smile of joy, „
Wishing the friends of the TBincsa good cheer,
A very bright morning and happy jNeW Year.”
While waiting alone in my attic there.
Thrown backward to rest, in my easy chair,
II thoagbt of the year thus passing hfway.
Which oblivion would claim ere the'dawn of day:
I For 1 knew that no sooner would] “ Sixty” be
gone, . - ..." i -I
Than with glad shouts wouldbehailfed Sixty .one.
Thus with my head? full of past ang future, ■ : : i
And my gas turned down to a taper light, ■
-in m y attic there in my easy chain
I drenmingly mused, on Time’? rapid flight,
I thought of the morn ‘of last New [tear's day.
When the sun broke forth in its bright,
And bathed in its lustre the browd of some v
Whose hearts were then happy, buoyant and
. light, —
Hearts that grew sad ere the yearpassed away;
For sorrow has oast o’er some hpm'es a cloud,
“And where there was mirth, and gladness and
song. r [abroad..
Has since been the death-dirge, coma and 4
And I thought of the rambles, last: summer,
In search of flow’ra in the dark I shady grove.
And of songs and sighs ’neath the greenwood
tree — r
Worships there offered t’ the Goddess of love,
I thought of the opening bud of life.
The cradle that lay, to the grave, so neat;
Of manhood’s prime and of hoary ;old age.
All lost ’ mid the wreck of the dying year.
Thus on ev’ry string of th? soul
Had mind been busily playing,
And thought had been rambling around.
O'er grave-yards and ploafapro ground
When, Time’s locomotive drew upilo the station.
And whistled down “ brakes”; with a sound
shrill and clear, ! [parted,
And 1 heard the wail of the rwe)te-months de-
As they glanced from their graves at the
i coming New Year. •
Whan thus aroused from myj slumber.
A tap on my lattice I heal’d,
Who's there? And in stalk’d Father Time,
Not deigning to utter a wiord.
For a while he stood there nbd gaz’d
As if some other person t(j see.

The one about which! am writing this rhyme;
And from this sam/piige I the liberty take

The buds as be/bre, have swell’il in the bowers.
The gardens and woodlands gpown bright with
The groves have been gieen—tbjasky above blue,
The field? have been cloth’d in tjheir golden hue;
And the harvest gather'd and stor’d away,
And the verdure has faded dayjby day,
The forest’s put op its crimson rind gold,
And the garb of the year’s grown ragged and old.
But events less common than these have Iran;
