The Philadelphia Zeller learns that the
earnings of the Phibniolphia - ot Erie rail
road for the month of September " are
nearly $250,000, and a remarkable feature
of it is its almost exolusively loos! charac
ter. Thirty to forty thousand dollars per
month is expected from the new passen
ger line recently put on, and with the
completion of the docks at Erie, during
the owning winter. • large trade in an
thracite coal to the lake ports is expected.
In addition to this, arrangements are in
progress to largely increase the oil ton
nage, and accommodations are steadily
making for a through trade, on which
the company has mainly relied for the
support of the road, and which it has not
thus.fax been prepared to accommodate—
the late , war troubles having interposed
obstacles to fuller equipment. The esti
mate of the late President of the road on
leaving that oftioe, about a year ago, was
that the receipts of the road in . three
years from that time would be three'bon
dred thonssind dollars per month. It is
already nearly that stn, in one year,
without a tbretigit freight trade, with
on'v a limited ambunt of the oil business,
surno anthracite coal tonnage: Its rev
enues, so far, are almost entirely from
local sources. Whit tasY be expected
whee to these shall be added all the other
sources of revenue oontemplatod when
the ' enterprlie of connecting the lakes
with tide-water was first started? The Ap
prehensions entertained by some of the
heaiy owners ,in the Pennsylvania rail
road, that the company had connected
with an unprofitable speculation in leas
ing the Erie road, are fast fading out in
the face of the practical working of the
road, and especially in the development
of its immense local trafflo. Instead of a
drain to the Pennsylvania railroad com
pany, it promises to be a great source of
profit, and to largely increase the impor-'
Lance of Philadelphia is a commercial cen
tre and shipping point."
The Ledger might add that with•more
enterprise on the part . of the' managers,
and a greater spirit of aceomm odation, so
as to make the road a favorite with the
people of the counties which it traverses,
instead of being, as now, universally odi
ous, it would do a still more profitable
business. In. the hands of the new Gene
ral Manager, we are in hopes tint a dif
ferent system will soon prevail, but we
should be false to our duty as a jilnrnalist,
and to the sentiments of the people of
Erie county, if we did not say that the
course of its °tillers heretofore has been
a grievous disappointment to the best
friends of-the railroad,

In 1860, ten days work of a laboring
man at $1 per day would foot the bill ; in
1865 it will require twenty days work, at $2
per day, (which very few laboring men
get.) to pay for,the suns bill of goods. 'ln
1860' the farmer' would come to town and
pay his bill of goods with two barrels of
flour; in 1865, notwithstanding the high
pros flour commands, it will take four
barrels to pay the same bill.
-.The above presents a plain statement
of facts which are brought home to every
householder in the community. and es
pecially every laboring man who has to
provide for himself and his family by his
daily toil and industry, and this state of
thingar will continue just so long as the
governmental policy of the last few years
is continued. I! the masses want a
change, they will have to depose the Re
publican party from' power, and give the
reins of government to the party of econo

The above, , which we find going the

horribly heterodox. All the churches

- The New York Wor:/,1 affiNns thst: the
statement that we are lergely indebted to
the negroes for our succeee lek.the wer., is
a downright' falsehood. 14ener negroes
hive been in the servioe,drawte da by
Sigh bounties and large "Ogee, and When
led by white men, have iiisollne instemess
displayed respectable- animal courage.,
But they have never decided the fate of a'
single battle. Besides this, they. here been
basely.calpable, and by - their conduct. es
a people, hare furnished the must conclu
sive demonstration. that they are an infe
rior race. If they had risen in a body, as
Wendell Phillikeipected and predicted
that they would, td any time aftetothe war
had diawn a Faro portion of the white
men of the South ` lato-the field, the war ,
would have at once stopped.. But the
negroes not only generally- refused to
strike for their own liberty, when we were
fighting for it under
_the' emancipation
proclamation of - Linooln, and when by •
blow they might have secured it, Ind ter
minated the contest...but the great major
ity of them !steered constantly to supply
,the rebel army with food. What little
power the - negro had over the contest,
was in the. main thrown is , favor of , the
South. Efforts were male, e. the sugges
tion of just such persons as Wendell Phil
lips, to secure a 'general rising of the
slaves, and several expeditions penetrated
portions of the South for that purpoes.—
JuSt after one of these expeditions, had
bee& put in notion, the Tribune' had an
exulting article in. which it confidently
predicted what terrible and decisive things
the aroused negroes would do. . This,
and all similar expeditions failed ; and al
though Sumner and other abolitionists re
peatedly boasted„during the early part of
the war. that intelligence of our wishes
and purposes spread rapidly among the .
negroes in every direction. coming thee'
them from New Orleans to Washington in
- eight days, yet the most persistent efflirts
could not induce them'to rise against their
masters, or even quit working for the re
bellion in the absence of their mesters."
To ibe sure, wherever our large armies
penetrated the South ,the negroes ran at. ,
ter them just as they and the boys in the
street run after an ordinary military 'pa
rade. We repeat that the statement that
we are largely indebted to the negro for
our military woo's* is utterly untrue, and
a'gross libel on our white soldiers. A. few
blacks, prompted by large bounties and
persistent appeals from Massachusetts'
coward; like Wendell Phillips, who - . sent
their agents with money in hind in. the
wake of our armies, enlisted and fought
on our side. Bat for one of these there
were ten who built fortifications, threw up
defenses and raised supplies for the rebel
armies.• And they did it voluntarily, for
their masters had no power to coerce
them. La •to the high qualities which
Phillips ascribes to them, not oets of them I
has been found fit to fill an impertant Post
in.the army. Even the abolitionists them
selves - dired . not trust . oee of them to lead
a regiment ; and rather than rue such *
hazard they seat them out under such
men as Shaw and Higgins,. Boston gentle.
men, 'Unitarian preacheri and idaiisachts
setts philanthropists. f
• As to the threat that if the• negroes do
not have the right of suffrage conceded
to them, they will rise and wade through
a see of blood to obtain it s let no one be
alarmed. If the negro could find no mo
tive to stimulate him to rise during the ,
last four years, and secure the title to hts
own body and soul, he will hardly be and
denly fired, by political ambition, toaseert
his claim to the ballot. -ff,-under cover of
this thread, it is meant to convey the ides,
that the Northern radicals will excite .a
civil war at the South' for the purpose of
securing the right of the blacks to vote---
very well. Let them try it. There ire a,
class of men in this , cauetry who have
long cheated the halter of its due, and
they can do no greater service than to go
fully into the business of hatching a new
rebellion in this country. Only let them
enter upon the schema at once. and not
content themselves-with . nientting on the
"platform,' and venting idle' threats.
The crippled condition of the•national
finances demands the practice of. rigid
economy in all departmepts of the gov
ernment. No more money should be ex
pended then is absolutely necessary, and
the objects of expenditure should be close
ly inspected by those intrusted with the
disbursement of the public mrtneys. This
is no time for raids upon the National
Treasury. The pressure upon it is heavy
and the taxes which•fali upon the people
are of a character to impress:all men with
the necessity of economy and the need of
retrenchment and reform.
This being the case, the country will
tetra with astonishment that Chief Justice
Chase and a roll of friends have been
indulging In extensive excursions at the
expense of the public. On a recent oc
ossion bills; contracted by Mr. Chase . and
his friends in an excursion on the North.

dollars, were presented for payment to
Charles D. Norton. Collector of the Port
of Buffalo. Mr. Norton referred to . his
instructions' for ..information as to the
course he should pursue sal finding noth

ernment officials on a pleasure jaunt, -he
declined to allow the account, and tele
graphed to Washington tor his instrno

the bills and. return them. as vouchers to

precedent was set which may lead • to the
most unheard of abuses in the expendi

is both just and proper that the govern

GIR/AD.—Our limited time .. and space
forbid us this week from publishing
an extended report of the interest
ing ceremonies attending the' dedication
of Col. an Rice'e'llonument to the mem
ory of our fallen Erie county soldiers, at
Girard, on Wednesday. The attendance
of people was unp . recedentedly largel, sur
passing, in our estimation, the enoriuous
political. mass meetings in our city duffing!
the Presidential etunpairn of last 'year.
Gen. A. B. lifcCalmont, of Venengo ,
presided: and on assuming the dutie! of
the Chair, delivered a mostrappmptiale
and effective opening speech. Tfe liras
followed by Gov. Curtin and Ez Gov.
Todd, of Ohio, each of whom devoted
more attention in their remarks to politics
than to the subject which bad assembled
the people together..a feature of the occa-

of his sndienoe, and it. was unanimously
agreed that neither of the Governors could

fective public speaker.
Aside from the manifest impropriety of
the political allusions mentioned, the gen
eral proceedings of the day were conduct;
ed in a remarkably enccessful manner, and
gave satisfaction to everybody. The peo
people of Girard were bountiful in their
"hospitality. The day is one that will long
remain memorable in the annals of this
portion of the State.
