A.h, what is the matter with Barney? •
The cold look of pride that he work
Has flipped from his face,like a shadow,
He is not himself any more.
And yet he *ill turn' from his smiling,
To sighing ah me!, and alas! •
I cannot make out what's the matter—
He is not the lad that he was.
Sometime he i ill keep in the shelter
Of clouds, and he sullen alone,
Like the sun : when the earth has offended
His pride, with a light of her .410-n.
The weeds hare run wild in his zarden, •
The toce•cjnes have dropt from the wall,
As if he had gathered the tloWer o' th' world,
And eared'for no rose of them all. '
And when the gas girlsof the village,
With red cheeks and milky-white hrOWs,'
Go by him, he answers their greeting
.A though he were calling his cows.
His hair noW-js left in disorder, __
,; And now, with womanish pride,
Sweet-scented, and e ,•enly parted,
And now, it is all on one side!
He used to be stalwart', to work with
The best of them, now has got
¶'o idling—hes taken to terse`!
To finger-rings! and , to what not!
1 .
He used to be late at the "meeting,"
iißut now, ere the solmn bell rings
e is there in his place; and if Esther
Look down from the; choir where she sings,
Third night the low tune of the anthem
I Will run in%', hiS head,!and ere break
Of the day, he will be an the hill-tops,
Singing the fishers awake.
I cannot interpret the meanirrg
Of all the strange ways that he has.
Ah, what cari have come ()vier Barney?
He is not. the lad thathe Was!
On the last day of this Month, a vote is
'to be taken by the citizens Of Buffalo,to de
r cide the question whether the city shall, in
'its corporate capacity, subscritie $200,000
to the Buffalo; and Washington R. R. It
is generally understood that if the vote re
lisults in favor of making the subscription,
the foregoing sum is but a Small amount in
/ comparison to / what the city will do towards
• building this , road. It is believed by those
who are familiar with:the affairs of the
Buffalo and Washington R.R. Co.- that if
the election results favorably to the road.
work will becommenced immediately along
• the'line of the road, in the State of New
York. It was the original intention of the
I Company to build, the road to Emporium
via the Allegheny river and the Portage
t creeks. A very earnest . and persistent TS-
I fort is being made by parties in the interest
of other routes to' divert the attention of
, the company' from their original purpose;
and make some other points on the line of
i the P. & E. R. R., their southern terminus.
The arguments used against the route
originally intended, are that the road does
not touch coat basiqattywhere on its line,
t'at no dependence can belplaced upon the
C rueron colliery, on account of a - very
li iced supply at that point, and that if the
object is to teach coal,the shortest and most
,;direct route to the coal basins of Elk county
!should be adOpted. , '. We know it has be
come quite fashionable of late,for those,who
are: Qperating ;in Ceal in - Elk county to
ridicule ; the idea of there beibg anycoal de
posits irl either M'Kean or Cameron cou*-
ties.. Now we are jtist as confident as we
can be Now
reality of any one thing, that
if,the Buffalo.;; and Washington R R.-Co.,
should finally adopt the Potatoe Creek,
•Red Mill / brook and Driftwood route to Eni
poriam, ithey -would traverse coal fields
enough, ;and reach thein by the easiest 'of
grades, to supply a dozen markets like Buf
falo with! the choicest bituminous coal fora
thousar.d veais.! . All this could be done
without crossing, the Elk county line. But
e have no disposition to change the com
pany from their. original purpose, nor 'to
d6tmet c pne iota from 'the merits of the old
• route. The Portage creek summit has
always been estimated as one of the easiest
ii!l this country to cross, which is a gre4t
desideratum in the bnilding of railroadi.
This route traverses one of the most popu
/ ions aitd thriving regions of this county,and
wonld be the 'outlet for a large , portion of
the clitizens Of Potter county, including
CondersPort, the County seat. As to - the
eoal it would Feadli,- we' hare everreason
to believe, the supply ample for ages to
come. Besides thei immense operations
now being carried on by the Cameron Coal
Company, other cotn i panies are developing
their lands,, and-in.sever-al - instances havd
found Splendid. depoki, ts of_ coal. A. very
rich vein 'llia Ncentlf been ' found on the
• hetulwaters of ffune.s Run, where coal was
I ,
linever before supposed to exis-t.' Another
'strong argument in favor of this route ip,
I tbat it is of great importance to Buffalo to
trmake the distance to the Anthracite Coal
Ifiellds,of this State es short as possible,and
l the Shamokin Cdal can be reached via the
l'Portage Creeks 'and the R I &E: R. R.
i -
many miles less than by any other route.
As before stated,We can see no good reason
why the original purposes of the l Company
shoal not be carried out:—„ArcKedan ilinar.

the Common Council
with several other citizens in i company
have just returned from an inspecting visit
to the coal region about Emporium. Pa.
with which it is proposed to connect this
city by the building of the projected Buf
falo and Washing,Lon Railway. t The report
which we give elsewhere this morning of
' what the excursionists saw,must satisfy every
intelligent person - that it is expedient not
only for the business men manufacturers
and merchants of Buffalo to individually,
I ,
contribute means to the building of the
road, but for the city of Butralo, in its cor
porate capacity, to give large and liberal
assistance to the enterprise if its realization
can be secured. The only question as it
seems to us,is with regard to the securities
for the full carrying out the undertaking.
, About these it is, of course necessary for
the city to be careful. It .must not corn
mit itself blindly to a large subscription,
which may -be expended without accom
plishing that which constitutes its only
motive for subscribing to the capital stock
of the Road. It must have some guarantee
that its money is to go, not to the begin
ning but to the completion oft the work.
Its aid must be given coriditionOly,and the
conditions, as we look at the matter should
be bubstantially these: 1 1
Ist. That the issue and delivery of city
bonds in aid of the road shall be at a cer
tain rate per mile of completed ',road.
2d. That the building of the road shall
be carried on, from this end. t -
If such a farther guarantee is practicable
it would be well for the city to have secu
rity from the company for the refunding of
the money invested, in case the•road shall
not be conapletecl to Emporium before 'a
stipulated periOd of time. IL i 4 said that
the Company will tbe prepared to give
such security. ; If so, there can be no dif
ficulty--2no hesitatiop. - ' 1
Upon such conditions with such guaran
tees, the city should be Willing to giste its
aid td almost any eeded amount to the
proposed Buffalo and Washington Railway.
The country to be opened to ps by it is
one vast repository of both coal and lumber.

,"The true explanation of the prei-alling ex

WOnen dress for one another! for one
another ! ! That statement is all nonsense;
women do not dress ,for out - another; we
dress for you, gentlema - n-;--far: you alone.--
It is a pity to spoil a pleasing delusion,but
it is a duty to correct errots. We hear and
read a great deal about the sinful and reek-
l!as extravagance 'of women. "The Riot
of the Women"—an article setting forth oar
fearful extravagance and its no . less feafnl
consequenoes--appearud, quoted from the
Round Table, in nearly every paper pub
lished in this State. Indeed, one has only
to'pick up a newspaper Or a magazine to'
find something oU the never-failing topic—
"the extravagance , of the women."
- I - for one am tired' of - so much censure,
and think the time , has - 001130 . when justice
demands that we, investigate the causes of
sticli`rninous - effects. I think enough has
been said to rouse women to reflect on - the
evil of her ways, and at the same time Say
