We learn that the Atlantic and Great
Western Railroad Company, (principally
European capitalist, and of whom Sir Mor
ton Peto, now in this country, is chief,) has
leased the Catawis.ar and other railioads
and purchased the charters forothers, which
together will enable the company to con
struct a continuous line of Railroad from
the city of New York to Cincinnati, Ohio.
The greater portion of this road is already
constructed, at both ends leaving but that
portion between Milton in Northumberland
county, and Franklin in Venango county,
to be made. The contemplated route be
. ' , , .... .
is througU White
ounty ; Sugar and
tween these two points
Deer Valley in Union conn
Nittany Valleys in Clinton county ; up Fish
ing Creek, Mill Hall, Raid Eagle aud Beech
creek to Snow Shoe, in Centre county, and
thence by Clearfield and Rrookville to Fi ank
lin making it much the frhortest route be
tween the great oil region in Pennsylvania
and the Atlantic sea coast. The distance,
in a straight line, from Milton to Franklin
is 153 miles, but by the contemplated sur
vey 175 miles, a.i follows: from Milton to
Clearfield 90 miles, from Clearfield to Rrook
ville 40, and from Rrookville to Franklin 45. I
By the Philadelphia and Erie road the dis
tance to the oil region is 2.'J'J miles, and to
Erie city 26. The Atlantic and Great
Western road is therefore C4 mile3 shorter
to the oil region, an 1 about the same dis
tance less to the State line.
There are in use what are called broad
guage, and narrow guagc roads. The Penn
sylvania roads generally are narrow guage,
the rails being 4 feet inches apart ; while
on other roads the rails are 6 feet apart, and
are called broad guage. This great central
thoroughfare is to be furnished wilh three
rails, making it both a narrow and broad
road can pass over it. .When completed
this line will extend from New York to Cin
cinnati.by a route 120 miles shortert ban any
other, where it connects with a broad guage
road (the Ohio and Mississippi) to St. Louis.
That this road will, eventually, be extended
to the Pacific coast, there is little doubt,thus
making one continuous and complete iron
track across the entire continent. And
there seems to be no doubt, that the portion
of the road, lying between Milton and
Franklin, will be built shortly, as the money
to complete it is cn hands. The necessary
surveys are to be ma ic immediately, and
the road put under contract at an early day.
When completed it will be a formidable ri
val of the Pennsylvania Central, and the
Philalelphia and Erie Railroads, and will
have a tendency to materially lessen the
coast of travel, and to cause a reduction in
the transportation of freight.
Clearfield, it will be observed, is mention
ed in connection with the 'building of the
Atlantic and Great Western Railway.
Should this place be made a point in its
location, our borough will certainly derive
much benefit therefrom its borders will
be extended, its business increased, and th ;
value of property enhanced. In view of
these facts, our business men and capiia!
ists suould give this great railway en terpiise
nll the encouragement they can, as it will
be not only the means of building up our
town, but will develop the resources of our
entire county.
On Wednesday, Nov. 22d, the examina
tion before the United States Assessor, at
Meadeville, of the proprietors of certain oil
wells on Pithole creek was held. It was sup
posed that during certain months more oil
wa produced than was returned for taxation.
After inquiry it was discovered that the
agents of certain wells returned upon their
reports only the value of their working inter
est, and not the entire products of the wells.
At the investigation it was found that some of
the agents, whether it was their intention to
defraud or not, had claimed to have an under
standing with the oVners of the land and
free interest, to the effect that the latter
should take their share of the oil from the
. tanks, and pay their share. Heretofore the
custom has been for the working interest to
pay the fulj amount of the tax and then col
lect the respective portion from the land and
free interest The decision places the pen
alty upon the free interest, which is one
fourth the oil, but relerred the matter ior
final decision to the Chief Commissioner at
We were mistaken the other day, says the
Press, in asserting that De Hays and Capt.
W. W. Wilson were the only survivors of
the expedition of Dr Kane. A correspon
dent informs us that Mr. Amos BonsalL,
who was one of the party, is still alive and
resides in Delaware county, just oukida of
the limits of Philadelphia.
Curreccy Resumption
The following article on the subject of our
currency, and the res imption of specie pay
ments,, we copy from the New York tri
bune, of November 23d :
We are amazed that any should believe
as several who write us seem . to do that
our present watered Currency operates eith
er as a Protection to Home Industry or as
an impediment to excessive Jniporution. It
has no more effect in that way than an act
of Congress changing the denominations
of our Specie Currency, so that every half
dollar should be called a dollar, every lia;f
eau'e an easrle. would have. Can it be ne
cessary to argue so plain a proposition? '
Resumption would help our Home Indus
try in this war : Men hate to invest money
in" Houses, or Mills, or Railroads, when
they know that $1,HH) thus expended now
will go no further than 000 would by-and-by.
They naturally choose to lend their
rnonev on stocks, or invest it in Government
bonds, and thus wait till the Currency har
dens and Prices fall, before putting it into
structures that are eertain to be cheapened
by Resumption. Who can be ignorant of
Rut about Tmnorations :
We are now, and have long been. import
ing far too many goods, especially of costly
and sumptuous Fabrics. The duties on Im
ports are high ; the rates of Exchange heavi
ly adverse ; so that $1,000 sent abroad for
goods will not return 100 worth Jo the
American consumer ; yet what cares the
man who has made $50,000 in two or three
speculative operations? What cares his
fashion-following, dress-adoring wife? They
jointly go ahead and pooh-iooh the expense;
Uo that Cities at $o to $10 per bottle rre
jasfreclvahentl.eyco.tand $3.
I s ro.,ume, and you will see Imports
falling ell, people grown suddenly economi
iiil. sunerb dresses made to do for ten or
twelve parties instead of one or two, and a
sudden pulling up all around. If we could
resume on the 1st day ot January next, we
should import One Hundred Millions' worth
l.:ss in ISoo' than we should on a diluted
Currency ; aud that would be ju-t so much
clear pain.
"Rut ourPublic Securities, now hold
abroad, will come back upon us."
Let them come ! We heavily wib tlicy
had never gone wish they were all back to
day. If those who now bold them send
them here for sale, they can only sell them
for what we may be willing to pay for them.
We profoundly wifh they would send every
bond to-morrow, sell it for coin and take the
coin away. We should be stronger then,
and letter able to resume, than we now are.
Why won't people see that thht is the
main obstacle to Resumption ? If we owed
Europe nothing, we might re.-ume to'-mor-row
on a quarter of the specie we have in
the country. Nobody is going to run the
Ranks for coin but those who need it in
their business. We (for illustrations) re
ceive and tav out ucarlv $1,000,000 tier an
num in our business, yet wc use no coin but
a little change, and rarely ueed or draw even

The notion that a debauched Cmrene:.
stimulates Exportation is a sheer fallaey.
For a few days (or hours) alter the premium
on Gold takes a long leap upward. Jus porta
tion may be stimulated ; but the prices of
exportable staples very soon adjust them
selves to the new rates of Exchange, and
then all is flat again.

The Philadelphia Press, of Nov. 21st,con
tains the following remarks on the subject of
our National taxes, and our National debt :
It is authcritively avowed that "the Sec
retary ot the .treasury will urge that the
revenues of the Government be increased to
the highest possible figure, and that the excess
of recriptsover expenditures licapplied tothe
payment ol toe debt as last as is practicable.
1 his is the trua v not the only economy
When wo remember cur agony ia the dark
hours of war,ar.i recall our willingness to sac
rifice anything to give victory to our aims and
security to the Government ; when we look
over the record which contains the names
of the thousands who contributed with
princely generosity from their large fortunes
to the common treasury, and dwell upon
the long list of the heroes who volunteered
with impulsive patriotism and fell fighting
in defence of theflag.how beneath contempt
are not those mercenary feelings which ani
mate too many fortunate men in these times
when they are called upon to pay the sums
assessed upon their incomes! We have
heard of citizens who, during the war would
have gladly sac rificed halt their fortunes for
a single victory, now moaning and complain
ing of what they conceive to be unjust taxa
ation. Some of the most melancholy instances
of human depravity have been the exposures
of men who, in order to escape the payment
of a few hundred dollars tax, have deliber
ately perjured themselves by mistating
their worldly possessions. A gentleman of
large wealth said to us the other day, "I
caught myself in the act of doing a mean
thing, when I saw how much money I had
to pay, and how much more I would be cal
led upon to pay to the collector of the inter
nal revenue in my district In the emotion
produced by what looked like a large sum, I
forgot that all my prosperity was due to the
valor and the sacrifices ot the brave men who
had fongbt for the flag, to the constancy and
peseverance of our Executive and his Minis
ters, to the undoubting faith of the Ameri
can people." Secretary MrCcLLOCH may
rely upon it, however, that the spirit which
carried the country successfully through the
dark hoars of the rebellion, will give him ar
dentand unpausiitg support ill the noble et
for the is now making to reduce our burdens,
and particularly to alleviate the sufferings
of those who. notwithstanding their high
wages, are still compiled to struggle for the
maintenance of their families.

What queer fellows these Copperheads
are ! The Democrat says there was no regu

Repuhltain and Wallace regard Dr. Boyer
as the rfg.U'ii' nominee. The Democrat
also indirectly avers that Dr. Early was not
an "Independent candidate," whilst ial-

perhaps, the Democrat is only poking fun

To be 'beat by an "Independent candidate"
is a sore humiliation, but, to be sneered at,
and derided, on account of our misfortunes,
by party friends, is an insult almost leyond

Oxk Hundred Gout Dollars. This is
the title of an exceedingly interesting story
about to be published in that excellent
family paper, the Sun da;-School Times, of
Philadelphia. The narrative is from the
pen of an author whose n inie is a guarantee
for the sterling worth of the lessons it teach
es. TJ'e object is to show the proper uses
as well as the abuses of money. It abounds
tn incidents drawn trom tne lives of eminent
persons to show that wealth, in order to
prove a blessing, must be properly applied

which, is only $1,50 a year, in advance.
The paper is published every week, and at

and a list of the premiums, which will be

On the 21st Nov. a bill, conferring entire
civil rights upon the freedinen, passed the
Mississippi Legislature. On the 1 8tli the col
ored troops attacked a passenger trarn at
Lauderdale Springs. Their officers were
not able to control them. Governor Hum
phreys telegraphed to President Johnson
that the Legislature had U'tn memorialized
for the removal of the troops, and are wil
ling, if they are witdrawu, to extend the
rights of testifying in courts to the freed
inen. The President replied that the troops
would be withdrawn when order can be re
stored without them, and that measures
should be adopted whieh would give pro
tection to all freedmen, in the possession of
their property and other withheld rights.
Sinning and Sorrowing. We wish to
call especial and particular attention to an
admirable book for the young, just issued
from the press of J. C. Garrigues & Co.,
publishers of the Sunday-School Times.
The work is every highly commended by
different journals, all over the country, as
will be seen by reference to thr advertise
ment in another column. We think it will
prove a very acceptable present for the
coming holida3-s. '
Some time since the Atlantic and Great
Western Railroad gave a deed of trust or
mortgage to John Rear, a New York bank
er, for thirty millions of dollars. One thou
sand dollars in revenue stamps were placed
on the deed, and the Department being tele
graphed to know whether that amount was
sufficient, the answer stated that before the
deed would be valid, it would require thirty
thousand dollars' worth of stamps.
Twelve hundred and fifty men of the Vet
eran Reserves, have been mustered out by
Major LaMotte, chief mustering officer,
leaving about one hundred enlisted men of
this organization in the department. . The
officers number about two hundred, and
for the present remain in the service.
