The Pacific Railroad.
We are credibly informed that Mr. Hexer
33. Reortitc, of this State ' has 1/0001110 connec
ted with Messrs. Walker, Chatfield &Aslimun's
moonshine project for making money in Nei.
fir Railroad atock. Mr. Stanton will thus con
tinue the career, in the course of which he has
veriously figured as an Abolitionist, a leader of
the Liberty party, a Freesoiler, a Barnburner
and a pro-slavery Democrat, by assuming the
[auctions of a lobby-agent and buyer.up of
newspapere, and Congressmen, etcetera, to be.
half of that great echeine for the transfer of
money from the pockets of those who have it
not. We congratulate the Company on the
nequisition of a gentleman so well qualified
for their service; and we congratulate the new
anent on having passed front political life, in
+-illicit he could shine no longer, into a station
where his genius is sure to find ample room
and verge enough.
The New York Atlantic and Pacific Rail
road Company owes its existence in great part
o f Mr. LEVI S. CHATFIELD, 48 President, who
a, Attorney General of: the State has rendered
his name illustrious. lie got the charter
through at the extra session of the Legislature
last seamier, and a very bad character it is,
for every other purpose except selling stock,
and for that it may be good enough. Mr. Chat.
field being a Jeffersonian democrat, was na
turally led to adorn his charter with a demo.
cratic clause rendering all and each of the
stockholders personally liable for the debts of
the Company. This, however, need not alarm
small stockholders, or it is not likely that the
Company will ever owe any debts to any body,
since heavy capitalists like Mr. R. J. Walker
have come forward and subscribed let: mil
lions apiece, whereby the Directors will always
have lots of cash at command and can flail
John Randolph's maxim of "pay ns you go."
Another objectionable feature of this charter is
this. that like Aaron's rod, it swallows all oth
era that may be granted by other States, and
excludes Missouri, Arkansas, Texas and Cali
fornia from any share in the management of
an enterprise which they moot all be asked to
charter and assist. How far those States are
likely to grant charters merely for the pleasure
cf seeing them merged in a gigantic New York
Company, and how far they are likely to give
land to a body of capitalists, who have a hun
dred millions already in hand, and ate mem
cordingly perfectly able to carry through the
work without any such subsidy, is a question
to every body but Messrs. Walker, Chatfield &
Co., with their agent Mr. Stanton. They know
liow'to manage Legislatures; but we trust that
in their future dealings with those bodies, they
will take good care tiiavoid everything like Is
personal liability clause.
The line of this splendid speculation is in
.geniously devised. It begins at St. Louis, in
order to secure the support of Westerm men,
and head off Col. Benton; it runs down through
Arkansas to Marshall, in Texas, and thence
West to El Paso, in order to secure the sop
port of the slave States, which wont no Pacific
yearend throngli free territory; thence it passes
through the north of Chihuahua and Sonora,
—by virtue of a special grant obtained or to
be obtained from Gen. Santa 7 Anna, for a con
sideration,—running as near the northern
boundary of Mexico as possible, in order to
secure the support of' G.. Pierce and of Con
gress. as the best and cheapest means of pre
ventine Inalan depredations in that quarter,
and fulfilling the treat? of Guadalupe Hidalgo;
nod, finally, it reaches' San Diego, on the Pa
eine, end runs up to San Francisco, having
token the longest possible course from St. Lou
is to the Western emporium, the shortest,
ever, es it is believed, to the Treasury of the
Federal Government, and the pockets of those
who are to buy the stock at second band.
Tire nominal capital, en which this enter.
prize is brought befire the pub:le, is a In:ln
deed millions of dollars; the real ceeitel, is
nothing, or ns near thereto es poesible. At
first it was not intended to cell in any pert of
the subscriptions, hut finally, the observations
which several Journals thought proper to melee
on the speculation, and certain regard fur pub
lic opinion, seemed to render it necessary to
call in something, and accordingly an assess
men was laid to the enormous amount of ofze
min on a doil.ar. This it is supposed, is all
that will ever Lc necessary for any stockholder
The relied on to give consistence end
respectability to the undertaking, gifts Ire of
lands to be procured from the Federal Govern
meat and from the State of Texas, with a fat
mail contract for a long series of years. With
n sufficient ntunber of millions of acres, and ft
mail contract of from three to five million dol
lars yearly for fifty years, it is probable that
the Sleek, having cost its authors and holders
exactly ono mill all the dollar, will rise to some
thing substantial. Supposing it rises to only
twenty dollars a share, the portion of Mr. R.
J. Walker will fetch the sum of two millions,
affording the pleasant little profit of one million,
nine hundred and ninety thousand dollars,—
which would go far toward . paying off the re
pudiated debt of Mississippea purpose his pat
riotism would naturally lead him to devote it
• to. Or, if lie should prefer to keep the, shares
till the lands were sold, money borrowed on
the bonds of the Company, and the road actual
ly completed—supposing he could live to the
eenerable age which that would imply,—he
would then be the owner of ten millions of
stock above par, and paying as great n divi
dend, as ever was expected from Law's Missis
sippi scheme or the great South Sea bubble.
Such are the general features of a plan
which already holds out glittering temetations
to the gentlemen of the press; nod will soon
appear with big bribes in hand at the doors of
r Congress. These bribes ore not offered in
ready money, but in this wonderful stock itself.
We have not the slightest doubt that any re
spectable journalist, who wishes to sell himself.
may obtain from five thousand to two hundred
thousand dollars, according as lie is slurp at a
bargain. For the honor of the profession, we
trust that no one will take less than the latter
sum. As for the price of a Congressman, or
nn Executive official, we have no advice to
give; and besides, there is no reason to doubt
that the commodity will be held up to its trill
marls . ! value, especially as the sellers are well
aware that the arligle given in exchange costs
the buyers nothing.
We add, for the information of throne who are
green. in such matters, that they are sometimes
arranged without the actual delivery of the
scrip; the journalist or official gets hie:cite/me
in stock, but in order to nave trouble the party
furnishing it takes it off his hands at once and
pays down the premium he might expect to
fret eon it in the market. • This anode of trans
acting the business also affords an opportunity
of reporting a movement in the stock. Thus
A gives B a thousand shores for service rent
tiered or to be rendered to the Company,
and at the same flute brings with bier his!
friend C, who buys them of
,B at per cent.
premium, or such other rate as the elate
of the Market willjastife. Thus B receives
$5OO or $l,OOO withoet .a stroke of a pen,
and it is reported next cloy as a Lanai:4e sale
at an advanced price.
The mere exposure of such n project ought
to suffice for its extinction, and there are indi
cations that the public judgement is not mis
led with regard to it. Not one respectable
journal has yet been found to lend itself to the
scheme,—and we Care say it has not been for
want of solicitation and proposals,—while an
honorable war has been declared against it in
many quarters. In Congress too, it has to en
counter the redoubtable opposition of Col. Ben
ton, Gen. gild* anti other gentlemen who can
not be seduced by the allurements of the most
brilliant speculation in moonshine shares.—
But its supporters are active, their power of in
vention and intrigue great, their offers lavish,
and unless public attention is kept alive to tire
subject. their project May become a noted
motet formidable hindrance in the way of a
genuine Pacific railroad enterprise than the
real friends of that great national desiOeretten
It is earnestly to be hoped that the next see

can sent out to explore, there will be little dif
nculty in determining which is the most easy
and advantageous route. What is the Lest
mode of getting the work accomplished will not
sci readily be agreed on, but it is certitin that
in one form or nnother the either the Govern
ment must be had. On this head there is OIN
suggestion which may well be borrowed from
the plan of ASA WHITNEY, a man oflarge mind
and noble ideas, with whom - the Pacific Rail
road seas something inure than a stock specu
lation. Mr. Whitney proposed that the road
should be built from the proceeds of public
lands, and that having thus been constructed
from the property of the whole country, it
should not be converted into a source of private
gain, but that the charges for passage and tran
sportation should be so reduced as simply to
suffice for running expenses and repairs.—
Here is a sound principle: so fares the road
is built by the money of subscribers, actually
paid in and used in the work, it ought to pay
n profit like any other private enterprize; but
if three-quarters or seven-eights of the means
of building it are derived from the Federal
Government, it Ought, so fur, to be held as pub
lic property, open to the public use at rates
similar to those contemplated in the Whitney
project. The cheapness of transportation thus
attained would immensely enhance the public
benefits of the work, and add moral grandeur
to its collossal magnitude as an industrial en
terprise.—N. I'. Tribune.
