TH.E look is more and more that
PEcumarox and Mr. CHASE will both fail
of commanding two-thirds of the votes in
the Democratic Convention, and come
quently be set aside in favor of Mr. SEr
noun or even , some nonentity of the
Faiwanw PIERCE order.
,Clncinnati Democrats
are to receive refreshments at the depot at
the hands of the members of that party in
this city. The old coffee pots used in days
of yore to refresh rebel prisoners on their
way through the city will again be brought
into service by their fair owners. •
THE DEMOCRATIC editors of Western
Pennsylvania, having contributed their full
share towards establishing the Republican
ascendency throughout this region, are so
decidedly enamored of the situation that
they are anxious to intensity. Hence,
their zeal for Mr. PENDLETON and the green
back humbug.!
SO PAR as Democrats have participated in
the movement for Mr. Cm&sE,they appear to
have been actuated by a desire to kill off
Mr. PENDLETON rather than anything else.
Having secured, as they think, that end,
they are now casting about for. he available
third man who shall supercede both. They
may find him in Mr. SEYMOUR.
Jomssost, after his efforts to rally the
democrats in favor of his re-election, is as
clearly deserted by them as was Tmnn or
FELLMORE. They "like the treason, but de
spise the traitor." As human nature is con
stituted, it always; will be so. A man who
betrays his friends, is never trusted by those
in whose behalf he displays his baseness:
Mn. .TonicsoN threatens, in a few days,
to throw the whole influence of the Admin
istration against the Democracy in case his
claims to the nomination for the Presidency
are ignored at the Convention in New York
next July. Mr. JOHNSON has a strong par
ty working for him, and the whole influence
of the..Woolley whisky ring will be used in
his behalf. •
IT IS NOW IMEPIWBAISLE that the Democracy
will unite on Anntinw BIIIITT as their
standatd bearer for Congress in opposition
to GEN. NEGLET. Like Mnl CEASE, Mn.
Bun has cqual claims on their support
and suffrag,es. The material being exhaust
ed in their own party, it is not, surpassingly
strange that they should select candidates
from among weak-kneed Republican&
THE SOUTHERN Propot are rapidly be
coming convinced that the Northern Demo
-mats care nothing for them, or for any prin
ciples touching public policy, but are ready
to adopt or reject negro suffrage and equali
ty according to the chances presented for
securing a presidential election. It is well,
even at this late day that those people
should understand correctly the character
and disposition of the men upon whom
they have been laming for support
TEE Fecv that a large and influential
section of democrats seriously urge their
National Convention' to nominate Mr.
CHASE for President, seems to illustrate how
far the current of eveats during the last
eight years has swept old issues into obliv
ion. The democrats are even somewhat
uncertain whether they will howl against
negro voting or go in for 'Universal Suff
rage; and they are equally undecided wheth
er they will insist upon paying , bonds in
greenbacks or specie.
Tun Democrats begin to suspect that
what Mr. CHASE is, after is not so much
their success as his dwn. lience;they now
talk of demanding from his friends, as
condition precedent to allowing his name to
come before the NatiTftral Convention, that
they will squarely support the nominees,
whoever they may be. This is a point
well taken. Bat Mr. CHASE'S friends will
give the pledge, and afterwards do as they
Plates. They are slippery customers, and
used to many forms of political deceit:
We are very much gratified-to learn that
- fully one-third of the second million haeld
ready been subscribed to the bonds of This
Company, most of it by prominent and in,
fluential citizens of Baltimore, and that
lar g e additional subscriptions are confident
ly looked for. Mr. Ittrouanr, the 'efticient
and untiring President of the 'Company is
again in that city, intending to itanyass it
thoroUghly, in which he will be aided by
the personal co-operatioiref Mr. GARRETT,
President of the B. .& 0. Company, and by
other leading citizens. It may be remar
ked that the President and one of the 'Di
rectors. of that Company are individual
subscribers for $90,000 already.
The success which is - steadily 'e roiming
the efforts of these gentlemen, backed by ,
the zealons and powerful aid of the Direct.'
ors of the ' two companies, and by outside
friends of this desirgble connectionletween
Baltimore and Pittsburgh, is already such as
to leave no doubt in their councils, of the
absolute ability . of the company to re-com
mence the work of construction, assured
that it may be prosectited uninterruptedly
until finished. Work has therefore been
again resumed, the old contractor having
made a beginning on Menday, the 22nd, at
the Sand Patch tunnel. Contracts for the
entire work, including the tunnel, are to be
shortly let, and the operations already re
sumed are subject to that understanding.
The tunnel itself, much - thelleaviest job on
the line, will --be - ,completed and arched '
through its entire length—seven-eighths of
a mile—before the expiration of the twenty
months from this- date, which is to see
the entire completion of the line, and an un
broken railway connection established from
Pittsburgh through to Baltimore. The Di
rectors have not resumed the operations of
construction without a careful consideration
of all the questions, financial as well as
material, and, having satisfied themselves of
their ability to carry"the work forward with
unbroken, steady vigor to a successful issue,
have taken the decisive step, and will not
now turn back, No enterprise has a clearer
title to the cordial support of the people, not
only of the two great cities which are to be I
connected by its completion, but of the en,
tire intervening region; and . we believe', I
therefore, that the friends of this projectwill
find themselves heartily and promptly sus
tabled by the public.
Congratulating our readers, especially
those who are citizens of Western Pennsyl
vania, upon this auspicious promise for the
realization of their hopes in the early com
pletion of the Connellsville Railway, we
feel it to be but simple justice to make this
public acknowledgment of the very eminent
services of the President'of the Company,
W. 0. HTYGRART, Esq., in bringing its af
fairs out of the dark cloud of embarrassment
which has heretofore enveloped them, into
the present bright hopes, indeed the certain-,
ty, of a triumphant issue. That gentleman'
has contended, and with this ultimate suc
cess, against difficulties of no ordinary char- .
acter. Patient, prudent, untiring, self
sacrificing, he needed to have uncommon
nerve to grapple with the legal and financial
obstacles which heretofore threatened to
block the progress , of the , work forever.
But, one by one, he has taken them in
hand, singly and together overcoming
them, until now at last, it is only Nature
which interposes her material barriers, and
these are beginning to give way. -The Ist
of April, 1870, will see , the Connellsville
Railway finished, and the man to whose ener
gy and fidelity we owe it will have deserved
better of fils fellow citizens thsin if he were
the hero of a battle-field .
But no amount of righteous indignation Sou th ern
the fact that the electoral votes of the
States will be counted in the Presidential election.
The Southern Presidential electors will be chosen
under the direction of the new State governments.
—N. Y. World.
The wonder is, not that the World should
state thus clearly the course of the inevita
ble future, but that so many of: the Country
journals of the same party should still per
sist is their insane protestations against the
count of the reconstructed States in the
Electoral College. They must be as crazy
point, not to perceive, - with the TVorld, the
futility of any efforts to exclude the South
ern people from the nghts which they are
now admitted to enjoy.
The World also prbposes to exclude - even
the consideration of any questions upon
_that point, in
,the Convention. It says,
l 'This is not a question for the Democratic
Convention, but for the _white citizens of
the Southern States. It would be out of
place for a Convention to tell them that they
ought or ought not to vote." It character
izes the stupid Copperheadism of .those
Democrats, North or South, who clamor
for "a white man's government" in the fol
lowing vigorous language
The contest Is to be too close to Justify much ya

certai s nty that the Southern States are to wile, and
to vote under the new rule of negro suffrage. To
shut our eyes to this unwelcome fact, or to belittle
Its Importance. or to assnine that a Democratic vie
toryils certain in spite of It, would be an exhibition
of Mindfully and presumptuous self-confidence.
With this stinging rap upon their thick
skulls, we trust we shall hear nothing more
of this vaporing, gasconade or blind folly
from the minor Democratic press;
CO6GREBB has, done decidedly well hi
postponing all action upon bills granting
subsidies to Pacific Railroad Companies un
til next year. If the Government was out
of debt it would, doubtless, be not only
prudent, but eminently well for Congress
to grant the three or four hundred millions
of dollars which would be reqUir,ed of it to
complete these. enterprises. Wlth the ex
isting enormous debt pressing upon the peo
ple, the Republican party.would commit
political suicide by voting these immense
appropriations. •
This determination does not affect the
Union Pacific Railroad COmpany, operating
westward from Omaha, for the" Government,
tome, years ago, pledged its aid for the com
pletion of That line. Some or all of the
other :lines, and hi particular, the Eastern

ea s tern terminus'in ICansas, will be aided
sooner or later ; :but for the Present they

The corning July 4th will be forty years
since the construction of the Baltimore &
Ohio road, the first) l railroad in the United
States, was commenced. -Three years biter,
the first locomotive usedln this country-was
put in operation by the same company.' The
year 1867 closed upon 39,244 miles of road
constructed and operated within thelimits
of the Union, and to thii at least 600 miles
have been-added in the six months since in
tervening. The ratio of mileage of rail
roads to population has been reduced from
one mile of the former to 7,415 of the latter
in 1840, down as low as Ito 905 in 1867. In
the Western portion of the Union it is still
lower, being Ito 766. The average cost of
these 39,844 miles hat been about $41,000
pee ( mile, making an aggregate of about
$1,000,000,000, estimated for the most part
on the amount of their capital accounts, but
the stocks and bongs have not probably
yielded more than 75 cents on the dollar:
Thil share capital bears to the debt of all the
roa s about the ratio of three to two. These
roads earned last year $346,000,000, rang
tug from $19,247 'per mile for the highest
down to a very low (figure. The tales of
gross earnings to cost was about 23 per cent:
last (year, some roads largely exceeding
this, and one even going as high as 57 per
cent. This ratio of earnings to cost is in
creased yearly, as the figures for the former
swell rapidly with the advancing material
progress of-the people. The gross tonnage
moved was 78,568,000 -Aotts, of which over
48,000,000 tons were of merchandize, esti
mated to be worth $7,273,200,000. Almost
the whole of this merchandize tonnage has
been the creation of the last fifteen years.
`On three great roads; the New York Cen-,
tral, Erie and Pennsylvania, it has grown
in ten years from 2,347,280 tons to 9,152,010
tons, or nearly 300 per cent. One-half of
the total increase of tonnage moved dates
since 1860. The ratio of expenses to gross
earnings is fully '7O per cent., and Mr. Poon
thinks it not likely to be diminished so long
as construction accounts are suffered to re
main open. The net earnings of the last
Tear were about $100,000.000. The per
tentage of net to gross receipts in this coun
try is small compared with other countries,
but the net returns upon cost are largely in
the American favor. It cost, last year,
$140,000,000 to move the freight tonnage,
estimating it at 1 cents per ton per mile ; a
reduction of one-eighth of a cent per ton
per mile would have saved $12,000:000.
Thei.extent of possible reduction in the cost
of freight transportation is a problem yet
unsolved, but of vast importance to the
material interests of the nation.

his Nor . thern supporters, a Washington let
ter says:
"No great importance is attached here to
the sudden turn taken by the New ,York
World against the Chief Justice. There
are letters in against"
from the proprietors of
the World, written since the publication of
its anti-Chase `articles ' expressing a desire
for and expectation of his nomination. The
explanation given of its articles on the other
side is, that It was desirable to shake off
from the Chase movement some undesirable
elements that were attaching themselves to
it. Fishy as this looks, there are many
who believe it. The more rational theory
is that the Chase movement was taken up
by the New York men merely as a mean
of killing off Pendleton. and their presen
danger Is said to-be that Pendleton men
may be goaded into using it as a means of
killing them off." 4 '

more distinctly that this was probably his

and early completion of the road, will re

will at once be subscribed.
From a letter written by Judge B. F.
PORTER, of the Second Judicial District of
Alabama, and who is also a native of that
State—written to the great Montgomery
Grant ratification meeting, we extract the
paragraphs below. The axiom that the
wisest statesmanship is identical with good
common sense, was never more clearly il
lustrated than in the observations which
conclude this letter. He writes :
, As an individual, I will give Grant and
Colfax an earnest support. • It is the ticket
of- reconstruction under the Constitution
and laws of the United States, of peace, and
I of obedience to the authority of the Union.
General Grant has been the instrument,
under Providence, of closing the war of a
revolution with which, while I bad many
local and pereonal, I held no political sym
pathies. I shall hail him, as he advances to
deposit his sword upon the altar of perpetu
al peace, as one whose administration will
obliterate the Mason and Dixon line of dis
cord, and allay f rever the spirit of dissen
sion and civil war. ,
The clamors of negro .. premacy, which
assail this Presidential "cket, receive no
countenance from me. No man in lus
senses, in the South or e wherep need fear
that in this Intelligent co ntry, and in this
i l
Christian age, intellectual and moral power
will not reach the apex of the temple of lib
erty and hold It. It is the storm of revolu
tion which brings ignorance and corruption
to the surface of society. In times of peace
and of submission to the law, they sink to
obscurity, and control no nation's destiny.
Civil equality ill not personal or social deg-
radation. With very great respect, your
obedient servant," BEsJa.mix F. PORTER. j
THE Democracy of Philadelphia are not
as docile a party as their brethren of Alle
gheny county. While everything is here
left, as a matter of course, to the manage
ment of a wire-pulling clique who make
candidates and enuticiate principles, or dis
pense with both as they think fit, the rank
a nd file of the party contentedly - accepting
any policy that is endorsed by their leaders,
a greater independence is exhibited at
the other end of the State. For the proof of
this read the annexed paragraph from the
Press of the 23d :
The Democratic 'delegate meetings yes
terday were attended with the usual amount
of bloodshed, disorder and rioting which
characterize the assemblages of that party.
A full list of the killed and wounded, so far
as reported up to midnight, will be found
in our local columns. The casualties df the
later morning, and the results of the fights
in the suburban distilets, will be given to
morrow. ,
MENT, as proposed by Roo. THAD. STE
VENS embraceS four articles as lbllows :
The first Impeaches Andrew Johnson tbr a high
misdemeanor In violating the Constitution of the
United States by making Provisional tiovernments
In the Southern States without the consent of Con
gress, etc. The secend impeaches him for a usurp
ation of the pardoning power, Union the cases of
rebels and of deserters from the army, whom
he. pardoned for the special purpose of enabling
them them to cast their votes at a pending election
in a loyal State. The third Impeaches him f obs t ruct
crime in using the patronage of his office to
the laws 'of Congress in the Southern States. The
fourth and last imoeaches him for a corrupt use of
the patronage of his office In the elections which
have taken place within the last three years in the
various States of. the Union.
It is hardly necessary to add that these
articles will not be adopted by the House at
the present session, nor would it be profita
ble to speculate upon the possible results
had these been substituted, four months
since, for those upon which the trial was
had. ,
"Agate" writes from Washington to the
Cincinnati Gazette the following ; :
"The iefusal of Governor Seymour -to
permit the use of his name as a Democratic
candidate left that party at sea In New York
and other Eastern State.. The reason of
this refusal is very well • known here, and
there is is no reason, I imagine, why it
should not be known at the West. Gov.
Seyrnour is believed to have a hereditary
tendency to insanity; and he bas been warn
ed by his physicians that the excitement of a
Presidential campaign would most probably
develop the disease, and that at any rate the I
labor and harassing.cares of the first year of
Presidential tiplOdon would be almost cer-

The physical structure of t l he strongest human be
ling is vulnerable everywhere. Our bodies are en;
dowed by nature with a certain negative power,
which protects them, to some extent, from unwhole

and cannot be safely relied on in unhealthy regions,
or under circumstances of more than ordinary dan

' Ds. BEYSEU : I write to thank you for your kind•
nese and scientific management or my disease, for
which I called to consult you some time in January
last. You will remember that I had a complication
of diseases, which finally ended Ina terrible fistula,
which .I had been advised to "let alone," on ac
count ~of is harassing cough, which . It was feared
mbititlfisten it on my lungs. I knew that the peat•
lair mode of treating diseases, like Mine Was by a
cutting operation, which, If successful at all, trould
naturally thr6w the diseaseupon i the.lungs or some
other vital organ, on account of the suddenness of
the cure and the Immediate check to the discharge,
which I believed was a salutary provision of nature
to get rld'of some morbid condition of the system.
I feel perfectly satisfied that your method of treat
ment, purifying the system, and local applications
to the fistulous part, must cure, if anything could,
without cutting, which I find it did, and I am happy
to , report myself well in every
.particular, with
sounder and better health than I have had for years.
I would also add that the applications you r made
were almost painless, and have left me a new man,

The New York 'florid on General Grant.
Gen. Grant's last williant campaign sets
the final Beal on his reptgation. It stamps
-him-as thelolperfor - Of4119• 1 1ble antagonist,
is well as of all the commanders who
have served with Or under him in the great
campaigns of list year. However it may s
seem during the progress of his great com
bined campaigns, it always turns out at
last, when it reaches that completeness and
finish in which he contrives to have his
campaigns end, that we see him standing
in the foreground, and that the grouping is
always such that the ' glory of the other
Generals instead of eclipsing his own gives
it additional lustre. It is this sureness of
judgment which sees precisely where lies
the turning point; which sees precisely
what arthe objects that justify the utmost
stretch ofpersistence. '
it is this ability to take
in the whole field of view in just perspee
tivm•and due subordination of parts, that is
the mark of a superior mind. Gen. Grant
has taken out of the hands of all critics the
question - whether it belongs to him. He
has won his greatest tritunphs over the
most skillful and accomplished General on
the other side; over a General who foiled
, him long enough to prove his great mas
tery of the art of war; and the comPleteness
of whose defeat is a testimony to Grant's
genius, such as 'a victory, omer any': other
General of the Confederacy; or even an
earlier victory over Lee himself, could not
have given. Apply to General Grant what
test you will; measure him by the magnitude
of the obstacles he has surmounted, by the
value of the positions he has gained, by the
value of the fame of the antagonist over
whom he has triumphed, by the achieve
ments of his most illustrious co-workers,
by the sureness with which he directs his
indomitable energy to the vital point which
is the key of a vast field of operations, or
by that supreme test of consummate ability,
the absolute completeness of his- results,
and he vindicates his claim to stand next
after Napoleon and Wellington among the
great soldiers of this century, if not on a
level with the latter.—.Y. F. Apri
llth, 1885.
A NEW and unexpected danger threatens
the South. The white race are doomed to
poverty, ignurance, and extinction, while the
blacks will become educated and prospersus.
This alarming peril is,revealed through 'the
columns of the Richmond' , Examiner and
Enquirer. It is said there that "owing to
the poverty of the whites and the superior
advantages afforded the blacks by the Bureau
and the Association societies of the North,
the probability, nay the almost eertainty,
is that the end of the century will see a race
of educated and prosperous blacks, in the
midst of a race of ignorant, squalid, and
nearly barbarous whites." We cannot be
lieve that this is a true prophecy. Certainly
there is no such intrinsic superiority of the
negro over the white man as would lead us
to expect him to make any such relative ad
vance in wealth and civilization. Besides,
this writer overlooks the fact that the new
Constitutions of the Southern' States unifor
mally provide for a system of free schools,
in which all classes of children will be pro
vided with education at the public expense.
We are convinced, therefore, that these
gloomy anticipations are out of place. If
either nee is destined to go down in the
free struggle for existence, it is the black,
and not the white. 11 7 Sun.
TgE Philadelphia Press says : The po
litical condition of Pennsylvania is repre
sented as better than at any period since
Lincoln's re-election. There is an evident
'determination among the earnest Republi
cans not to jeopardize the cause by person
-al disappointments or selfish aspirations.
The canvass promises to be most thorough;
and when the campaign opens the best
speakers will take the field. If under such
circumstances the rebel Democracy can
carry Pennsylvania, they will be more for
tunate than they have evezbeen before.
When the system is once affected It will not rally
of Its own .accord; It needs* help-it must' be .
strengthened and Invigorated; this is esocciallyi the
