Prom the Toledo Blade of Oct. 20, 1870.)
The New Route to St. Louis.
THE SHORT LINE, VIA DECATUR
The Toledo, Wabash & Western is
one of the great railroad corporations
of the country. Its eastern terminus
is Toledo, but it has four terminal
points in the west, viz : Keokuk, Iowa;
Quincy, Illinois ' • Hannibal, Mo.; St
Louis, Mo. At Keokuk it connects
1N• Yew (Ka Lig o il & nicl °Fit
western to Omaha, passing through
the heart of lowa. AL Quincy it strikes
the Hannibal and St. Joe Road, and
makes all points in Kansas, and with
the St. Joe and Council Bluffs Road.
a direct connection with the Union
Pacific and the entire State of Missouri.
Leaving the Quincy lino at Bluff city,
a branch goes direct to Hannibal, Mo,
thence over the new Hannibal and
Moberly Road to Kansas City and
Leavenworth, making by. this route
an almost air lino from Toledo to Nan;
sas City. These three terminal points
control a large portion of the west.
This Company has now completed
its new road from Decatur, 111., to
East St. Louis, making a direct, con
tinuous line from the head of Lake
Erie to St. Louis, without break or
change of cars.
The completion of this connection is
an event in the history of Railroads in
this country. St. Louie is the chief
city on the Mississippi, and is the point
of departure for the vast territory in
the west. A line of road stretching
from Lake Erie to the
passing through two of the greatest
of the States, cannot but be considered
as one of the great enterprises of the
country, as by its now connection it
transports passengers from the great
Lakes to the great river without delay
The Wabash route is now prepared
as well for passenger traffic as any
road in tho United States, and the
completion of this most important con
nection gives it a hold upon business
which it has heretofore made no spe
cial effort to secure.
By this line the distance from Tole.
do to St. Louis is only one hundred
and thirty miles: The old Wabash
Road through the heart of Indiana
and Eastern Illinois is used to Deca
tur, Illinois, where the new lino bran.
ches off, passing counties and towns as
follows: Macon county, chief town De
catur; Christian county, chief town
Taylorville: Macoupen county, chief
town Staunton ; Madison county, chief
The road before reaching Decatur
passes through the garden of Indiana,
and the portion of Illinois that it pen
etrates is the best and richest. The
counties we have specified are not ex•
celled in The United States in point of
wealth of soil and natural beauty.
The Company's officers have made
ample arrangements to properly ac
commodate the immense tide of travel
that will naturally seek this avenue.
They have placed upon the road new
and elegant passenger coaches, fitted
up regardless of expense, the ruling
ideas being comfort and safety. There
Its absolutely nothing lacking in their
cars. The ornamentation is rich and
chaste, the seats aro not only beautiful
but luxurious, and the heating appar
atus is the best we have ever seen.—
To so fine a point have they brought
this important item that every passen
ger may have almost the precise tem
. perature preferred.
The Wabash has a bridge spanning
the Mississippi at Quincy, and is build
ing two more, one at Keokuk and one
at Hannibal. The Quincy bridge is a
magnificent structure and the others
D. P. GWIN are to be not inferior to it.
The sleeping cars now on the road
are Pullman's best, but the Company
are building sib in their shops in Tol
edo that excel "Pullman's best" in al
most every particular. The finishing
and furnishing are superb, and every
convenience that has over been de
vised is made use of.
As soon as the sleeping and palace
cars, now being built, are finished, the
passenger from New York to any
point in the West, may get in his seat
at the Hudson River Depot, and never
leave it till he reaches St. Louis.
The company make it a special point
to have none but gentlemen in their
employ. The officers of each train are
intelligent, obliging gentlemen who
feel that their duty is not done with
the collection of tickets. The Wabash
conductors have always been popular
with the traveling public—now that
their facilities for making those in
their care comfortable have been in
creased they will be more so.
The track of the Wabash is in most
excellent order. The road has been
thoroughly ballasted, the defective ties
and iron all removed, and the boat and
heaviest put in their place. The road
is smooth over its entire length, and
so well built as to make the highest
rate of speed safe. The condition of
the track, with •Lho care exercised in
the construction of the cars on the
line, relieve the traveler of the con
stant feeling of danger one experiences
on roads less carefully constructed and
less conscientiously managed.
The new depots at St. Louis are the
most commodious in that city. The
company have constructed a new pas
senger depot at the ferry, and tho
Transit Company have built a new
and complete equipment of Omnibuses
and Baggage Wagons especially for
this road, which run to every part of
the city—to private houses and ho
tels, as well as to depots of other rail-
At St. Louis, direct and close con-
nections are made with the Ncirth Mis
souri, Missouri Pacific, Southern Pa
cific, Iron Mountain, and other lines to
the West and Southwest, also with
first class steamers for Memphis and
New Orleans, and the intermediate
points on the Mississippi.
NVe believe that the greatest part of
the travel to the Great West will pass
over this route—indeed we do not see
how it can be otherwise. The trains
from the East make close connection
in the Union depot at Toledo. and
from Toledo to the Mississippi there is
no change whatever. The traveler
whose destination is Kansas Eaves sev
eral hours of time by taking this route
make iL preferable, even though he
Pave nothing in time thereby.
The majority of the men whose un
remitting efforts have carried forward
this great enterprise, are citizens of
lion. Azariab Seedy, the President,
resides in New York, and the active
duties of his office devolve upon John
N. Drummond, Esq , of this city, the
Vice President; Geo. 11 Burrows is
General Superintendent, with the (la
-6h:6 penal that important office; John
B Carson is General Freight Agent,
and manages the commercial interests
of the company, while John U. Par
sons and W. L. Malcolm have control
of the passenger business of the road.
To these gentlemen is due very much
of the credit for the perfection of the
road, and the satisfactory manner
with which its business with the public
No road in the country has in its
employ more able and accomplished
men, or men more quick to realize the
necessities of the hour or more ready
to meet them.
The traveling public in the East will
do well to remember the Wabash
route, when arranging for a trip to
the West. There is no better road in
the country, and the day is not far
distant when it will be so acknowl
edged by traveling men.
BABY Snow.—Memphis has been
holding a fair at which one of the at
tractions wits a baby show, Twenty
eevon infants competed for the honors
and for the prize, a beautiful perambu
lator. The blue-eyed blondes were in
the majority, although there were ma
ny brunettes, dark•colored and placid.
The boys seemed to be, livelier than
the girls. Ono blue-eyed lad of about
ten months was very attractive, and
his efforts to swallow a scarlet worsted
ball four inches in diameter excited
universal admiration. Health, beauty,
strength and weight were considered,
and half a dozen selected for a second
inspection. Finally, the choice nar
rowed down to little Mary Ainslie,who
was placed in the prize baby carriage.
Then Col. J. G. Ballentine, Grand
Marshal, gallantly wheeled the lucky
little lady around the arena amid the
huzzas of the assembled multitude,
while the unlucky babies were carried
solemnly out of the ring.
USEFUL llpurs.—A bit of glue dis
solved in skim milk will restore crape.
Ribbons of every kind should bo

If you aro buying a carpet for dura

Scotch snuff put in holes where

A Tale of Horror.
Last week's Saginaw (Michigan)
It has been well k nolyn or some
time that a dirty w — retehell;:oldiinan
lived outside the city about a mile , or
so, in a filthy little cabin, entirely
alone, and that he was a hermit. No
one ever went near him, for it was
said be was a magician.
, His only companion was,a skeleton
looking dog. He came into ,tbe city
sometimes to beg, and would piteously
implore for money, statiuk that be was
starving. Sometimes he would gather
rags or scraps of paper and sell them.
Every one supposed him to be wretch
edly poor.' He had an evil look, and
mothers would remove their children
when they saw him coming. , One
day last week, however, a child, the
son of Mr. Abraham Skinner, wont out
alone to fish in the stream, and hap
pened to wander on until, before be
knew it, ho came to the hovel of the
old man. At first he was frightened,
but seeing no one around, he plucked
up courage and wont nearii,i. Every
thing was silent. lie.wetiltiand peeped
through a crack in ,t11.6 7 4i09,9f the hut.
Ho almost &crowned at what heliaw,
for ho beheld the old 'than be'n'ding over
a bag of money that he was counting.
There wore other bags beside him
containing large quantities of money.
Mr. Skinner's son was so terrified that
when be attempted to move he stum
bled. Like lightning the old man
rushed out and seized him. ' , Hal" he
screamed, I've caught you, have I ?
You saw me, did yon ? Well—nOw
you'll pay for it." And before Mr.
Skinner's son could say a word, the old
monster, with an awful laugh, drew
out a knife, and (oh horror!) cut the
child's tongue out. Then he chopped
off his fingers. "Now," he said*—"now
you can go, for you can't tell." The
poor boy ran off overcome with agony
and ran to his father's house only to
fill them with consternation. What
was the matter with their child? He
could not write for his fingers were cut.
Still the poor boy, after efforts of the
most horrible pain, managed to fix a
pencil between his bloody stumps of
fingers, and wrote the-awful tale ! A
party was immediately organized, and
hastened to tbe miser's den. He was
at the door as they approached, and
fired a revolver at them six times, and
wounded two of the party seriously.—
aged villain fell, with a pTereing'yehr,
mortally wounded. "My money—my
money," he moaned, "my beautiful
money," and he crawled to his bags of
gold and sank upon them—a corpse!
Over ten thousand dollars were discov
ered, which were presented to the poor
house and other charitable institutions.
The event will never be forgotten by
our citizens. The child is slowly re
covering. The miser was buried the
day after, and the hut was torn down.
Soto —The Titusville Herald relate 1 1
how one of its citizens was sold at
Corry not long since. It says : "Dur
ing one of the late hot days, as the P.
and E. train stopped at the Corry de-•
pot, a jolly individual poked his head
out of the car window and shouted,—
"Water ! water ! water ! Fifty cents
for a pitcher of water !" A good•na
turod but verdant man from Titusville
ran to the hotel, snatched the water
pitcher and tumbler off the counter,
and with astonishing rapidity passed
both of them through the ear window.
The gentleman with the glowing coun
tenance, who had his whisky flask on
his lap, took the pitcher and tumbler,
deliberately set them both on the seat
beside-him, then found great difficulty
in looking up that delinquent fifty
e.ents. Just as he was successful to
the extent of a ten-cent stamp, the cry
of the conductor was heard, "All
aboard!" The ten cents was thrust
into Air. Verdant's hand, who stood
aghast gazing at the glowing counte
nance as it whizzed away, the owner
of which, bowing his head, cried out,
'Much obliged, and will pay the
balance. when I bring hack the pitcher
and tumbler. Good-by!' Amid the
cheers of the crowd Verdant ffiuttered,
"Well, if that isn't a flying trick."—
At this moment he found himself taken
by the arm by the hotel man,who invi
ted him to step over and settle for the
tumbler and pitcher."
A HOUSE BUILT BY ONE MAN.—The
South London Press tells a story of
perseverance. About four years ago
an eccentric personage, who follows
the pursuit of bird-catching, purchased
a small plot of land on the eastern side
of Nunhead cemetery. Here he re
solved to build a goothsized six-roomed
house with his own hands. Here, he
at once set to work, and, strange to
say, has nearly finished his task. He has
been his own architect, his own brick
layer, his own laborer, his own joiner,
his own plumber and glazier, and,
what is still more strange, has built
the house without ono particle of scaf
folding, and even carried his own brick
from the maker by the armful as - he
was able to afford them. The work
i 6 said to appear very substantial, and
to do him groat credit. During the
operation he has been living in a small
brick hut, built by himself on the plot
at the outset, in company with a little
son and a loquacious parrot. He prob
ably thought himself a sesond Crusoe
on an uninhabited island, and behaved
Efir "John," said a poverty-stricken
man to his son, "I've made Illy will to
"Ah, you were liberal, no doubt."
"Yes, ,Tohn, I've come down hand
some. I've willed you the whole State
of Virginia—to make a living in, with
the privilege of going elsewhere, if you
can do better."

Origin of the Phrase "I aoknoCedge
This popular phrase, it seems, was
first used in Congress, being A remark
made by Hon. Charles A. Wickliffe,
membor of Congress from Kentucky.
.It was in acknowledgment of the de.
dnetion of an argument for protection
made by Hon. Andrew_ Stewart,, just
elected to Congress_ from the West.,
moreland District (XXI) 'of Pennsyl
vania. Mr. Ste Wart was in Congress
when Henry Clay•and'Daniel Webster
was there, and advooated protection.
He recently made a speech, in which
ho referred to the fact. At the same
time he related an incident which
gives the origin of the well-kneWn
phrage, "I acknowledge the Corn." '
In 1828—forty-two 'Oars agothis
subject (protection) was before. Con.
greys, and we were discussing it. I
was trying to show to' the farmers ~of
the country that they were purchasing
foreign:agrienltural' production in the
form of goods, while' they left their
own production at' bowl Without a
market. I said Ohio, Indiana and
Kentucky soot their hey , stacks, , corn,
fields and fodder to ge* York . ,and
Philadelphia for Sale. "
M. Wickliffe, of KeUtucki, jiiniped
up and said: • ' •
"Why, that is absurd: Mr. Speaker
I call the gentleman to order ; He is
stating an absurdity. We never send
haystacks to Nesi York and Philadet.
"Well," I said, "what do you send ?"
"Why, horses, mules, cattle, and
"Well, what makes your , horses,
mules, cattle and hogs ? You feed
hundred dollars worth• of hay to'
borax, you just animate and get up to
the top of your haystaCk, and ride it . tO
market. [Laughter.] How is it with
your cattle ? You make oho of the&
oarry fifty dollars worth of- hay and
grass to the EaStern`inarket."
Then I came to the hog question.—
SaLd I : "Mr. Wickliffe,:_you: send a
market; ho* unroll' corn does it take
at 33 cents per bushel to fatten it 7" •
"Why, thirty bushels."
"Then you put thirty bushels of ooi
into the shape of a hog arid 'make it
walk off to the Eastern market."
Mr. Wickliffe jumped up and said
"Mr. Speaker,_ I acknowledge the
Mothers, Speak Moriky,
Children catch cross words quiCker
than parrots, and it is' a much more
mischievous habit. When' mothers
set the example, you willscarbely hear
a pleasant word among the children in
their plays with each other'. Yet the
discipline of such a family is always
weak and irregular. The children ex
'pest just so'mneh scolding before they
do anything they are bid, while in ma
ny a home, where the low, firm tone of
the mother or the decided look of her
steady eye is laW, they never think of
disobedience, either in or out of sight:
0, mother, it is worth a great deal to
cultivate that "excellent thing in a
woman," a low sweet voice. If you
aro ever so 'much tried by the niischie,
vous or wilful pranks of the little ones,
speak low. Tt will be a great help to
you 'to even try; to be patient and
cheerful, if you cannot succeed: Adger
makes' you . wretched and your chil
dren ahio. Impatient, angry tones
never did the heart good, but plenty of
evil. Dead what Selomon, , says of
them, and remember he wrote With an
inspired pen. You cannot have the
excuse for them that they lighten your
burdens any;, they make them only
ten times heavier. For your own, as
for your children's sake, learn to speak
low. They will remember that tone
when your head is under the willows.
So, too, will they remember a harsh
and angry tone. Which legacy will
youleave to your childi•en ?
TEN THOIIi3AND LIVES 'OR A. BIIONET.
—About seven hundred years ago, in
a country in Europe' called - Modena,
and another country lying beside it,
called Bologna, some soldiers belong•
ing to the atate' of Modena took a buc
ket from a well in the itate'of Bologna
and carried it away. The old bucket
was of no value, and might have . been
replaced by a few pence, and, it; is said,
the soldiers'earried it away for alrOlic.
But the pooide - of 13ologna took it as a
great insult. They declared war
against' Modena, and had a ' long and
bloody conflict about it. More than
ten thousand human beings were but,
°hexed because of the old bucket,
ger Why are sheep the most disci-
pated animals in creation ? Because
they gambol in their 'youth—spend
most of their ileYtron the turf; the
best of them are blacklegs, and they
are sure to be fleeced at, last,
