A letter from St. rctcrs.L;,:g of the Coth ult.,

and who, it is said, has aire ady arrived at Kia

From this they infer that the presence here of
Utissian ships of war is the fort runner of another
violent suppression of a natiemdity that they
are intended to assist the Tartar government in
putting an end to the rebellion.
"Which of these answers is the correct one, if
cither be at till near the truth, we have no means
of kno wing, and it is rery likely we shall remain
ignorant until time shows. Russia being little
of a maratime nation, having liule or no com
merce in the Pacific, even from her own territo
ries, the appearance of a ship of war of that na
tion, a rare occurrence, naturally gives rise to
strange surmises ; and taken in conjunction with
the present state of affairs in Cliimi, and the fact
that our brother of Russia never hesitates to hire
or lend, fir a consideration, his farce to extinguish
anything in the shape of popular aspirations, the
second answer to the question may not be far
from the truth. Yet, alter all, the vessels may
be merely meant as a squaelron of cLitrvatiau on
ttic pioeectiings cf the fleets cf other nations that
are mustering thick m these waters, one of which
nations, France, had as htilo to do on this side
of China as Russia. If, then, France ami its ru
ler, which have shown themselves as determine'.!
foes to national liberty as Russia, have escaped
without suspicion, perhaps it would be as well to
let this lieet show its true character before we
call out ' wolf." One thing, we think, is very

Railroads TLeir Necessity as a

In the present stale of railroad progress it
would appear supererogatory to attempt a dem
onstration of the necessity of the "iron road,"
politically, commercially, ami Stacially ; erfchow
that facility of intcrcommrtnication increases
such communication, creates business, l-ge-ls
sociality, tends to the dissemination of enlighten
ed views, and by uniting nil thc-se advantages,
promotes the growth, wealth, ami prosperity of
It is a self-evident preapositiou that accessibili
ty promotes opu!ution. The history of ecir coun
try is an enduring exemplification of this fact.
As facilities of iulereouse increased, th.- area cf
our .settlements extended, until the entire conti
nent litis be t u embraced within our borders.
Citie s and towns have sprung up in the midst of
the wihl e-rness, and the wilds have been made- to
blossom like the ro.se ; and if canals, rivers, and
plaiikand Macadamized roads the restricted
means of intercommunication enjoyed bef.re t he
introduction ef railroad, have sufficed to render
this country so pnspertus, w hat may we not an
ticipate when the vast undertakings now projec
ted shall have bee'.i completed ? u he:i the aurif
erous shores e f the Pacific shall be conuecteel with
the rocky barriers of the Atlantic by iron bands,
and the treasures of the East and ihe islands of
the sens shall be tran.-peirted thereupon, to find a
ready market among the dwellers of the West ?
That radroads w ill hereafter ba the mean.; of
intcrcommumerttion is equally evident. They
are the- best and cluf.pt si meat.s fbr promoting

Lew pe rsons are aw are of the iliil'eieiice in the
cost of li auspoi talion between the ordinary wa

sometime since- found the follo-.v jug table, iu
whic h is given the comparative value cf a ton of
wheal and one of com at given elistances from
market, as ufit-clcel by the cost of tnitisruriatmn
by railroad, and over the ord.inary road :

Corn. "Yheat Corn.
ctM 7o Sin .jo --I 75
ill ('0 IS CO '2Z ."
lly this table it appears that a ton of corn is
estimated not to be worth hauling, by wagon,
when 170 miles fi-eim market ; while at the same
distance upon a line of railroad, it would be
worth 1 22 20. A ton of wheat 23o miks from
market is not worth the hauling Ly wagon, bat
by railroad it would be worth 44 55. Thus, as
land may be near or more remote from lines of
railroad is its value enhance el over and above the
value had there been no such railroad. This is
an impe.rtant consideration to fanners when call
ed upon to aitl in the construction of railroads,
and should influiT.ee their actions in the mat
ter. While it thus elevelops the physical resources
of the country, and by the ready means of inter
communication it affords, makes distant points
accessible, the railroad is also intimately connec
ted with Commerce, ami with all its powers and
results, is peculiarly its agent, and has exerted a
jotential influence in the development ami ex
tension of modern tratle, and is destined to work
still greater changes and more vast achievements
in lie-half of the Commerce of the future.
Such being the fact, and railroads being the
necessity of the age," vc say let them be built
where ver they can le with lta-souable prospect of
success ; but in railroads, as in every other line
of business, judgment fhoulel lie exercised, and
rival Iim 3 of minor routes should lac avoided, at
least until such time as the wants of the commu
nity call for an exte nsion of traveling fioulitie-s.
This competition of rival lines will be one cf the
strongcsd obiect i'.ns to railroads, in the construc
tion and prosperous management e.f which imited
eff.t t is a jh ci.liar'y nccc-sary ingredient. Cin-

in several of our exchanges a .statement of a we-n-elei

set up S5,m.U cms of typo, in six days, workina
eleven hours and a half a day. The A',;,'o,;,-
Democrat remarks that the fastest composuor in
this country is now, ami has been for some time
working upon that paper, in New Yoik City.
During the last six days, working nine hours a
day, he has setup 60.0o2 ems. Ihis week's
work, at 32 cents per thousand cms, would a
mount toS2S,04, although he may- have "set
up" small type, which would make it much more.
