• WILLIAMSPORT, Nov. 20, 1871.
Mr. Vctii Gelder,-- The SupremeCourt
htt'‘f l o ng . dissolved the prellMiaary in
} unction prohibiting the CatawissaTtail
road from crossing the Philadelphia
and Erie at grade,_ the former road corn
! menced running this morning on the
new extension from Milton to t b 1,0
place. Their depot, here is at the foot
of •Pine street, near - the lirldge crossing
the Ruequehanna. The road is entirely
dipebnifited • with the . •Philadellphia
and Erie and Northern Centred, and
• ends, sO.far as the present is concerned,
nearly a mile beloW the mouth of Ly
comings otelr, running along the bank
of the river in . .front of nearly all the
large lumbering establishments of the
city. The road is located so as to give
it almost the entire monopoly of the
•Anenber carrying . trade. At present,
. is soinetiiing 'of an item ; but as
railroads are made for all time, this item
is of - very little importance in the fu
ture. Tharoackas it is now, presents
the singular feature of a great railroad
liOni two great cities, running up thro'
pell_country, and ending in a saw
mill pond,— millions expended to eon.
klect raid mill pond with New YOrk
Any one acquainted with the opera-,
tlon of cApltal, can at once see that the
road is not, to stop here. It must and
will have an outlet north and west.—
Where those outlets will he, it may per
haps be difficult, Just now, to guess ;
for, 115 yet, It must be guess work, no
route having been decided on, and no
regular survey having been made of
The northern outlet, it would seem
by looking at the map, must of neces
sity connect with either the Tloga rail
road or th. 3 Weilshoro and Lawrence
ville road., Either i of these roads would
afford good - outlets into central New
York, and would also become feeders to
the Catawissa. A connection with the
Welisboro and Lawrenceville road
would seem Co be most desirable, as this
would afford it an almost dlrect route to
lake Ontario, with fewer interests to
combine, and the benefits to accrue to
the two roads would seem to be recipro
cal and nearly equal: the road from
Wellsboro to lake Ontario, when com
pleted, if not now completed, being un
der the direct control of the Magee in
terest; and the Catawlesa road afford
ing them a direct route from their coal
mines to New' York and Philadelphia.
The roil te west, It seems-to me, must
he by the way of Pine creek ; at least
from its Junction with the Marsh creek
at " The Meadows." All other routes
seem to be monopolized ; and if they
were not, it is questionable whether
this route is not the best from Williams
port west. The Meadows may be reach
ed by two mutes from here : the ono by
Jersey Shore, up main Pine creek ; the
other by the way of Liberty, Wellsboro
an, Marsh creek.
`.c‘lie fdrmer route has very material
advantages, as well as disadvantages.—
It leads more directly up Into the bitu
minous coal region, and opens up Babb's
creek, Wilsonfereek, Stony Fork,'Ce
der Bun, and "other coal fields, and runs
through a good lumber region, though
the pine is nearly exhausted. But It is
a hard routi3over which to blind a road ;
the stream is rapid, heavy bridging will
be necessary, and in places, especially
between Blackwell's and the Meadows,
aro heavy grades and high perpendia
ler bluffs on both Sides of the creek.—
From t e Meadows, this could be con
nected ith the Magee road by an eight
mile I:,r rich.
The latter route, by_ Liberty an d
Wellaboro, is[almost a direct line across
the County, by the headwaters of the
Culver creek, to Wellabgro, and down
Maria' creek to the Meadows. This
rung aortal the great Bios - sburg, and
Wilson etesek bituminous coal trough,
meets the Wellaboro and Lawrenceville
road near the headwaters of the Culver
creek, thence,by the route of said road
to Wellsboro. By this route there will
be little or no heavy bridging, there be
ing no large streams after leaving Ly
coming creek. The only difficulty will
be/the grade; but it is better to lay out
a million In cutting down grades, than
half a million in building bridges that
are liable every year to be swept away.
This route also would run through a
heavy timbered country, across two
coal troughs, the Ralston and Blossburg,
open up a region hitherto distant from,
and without carrying facilities to, mar
ket; and, what is more important to
Weilaboro and its surroundings, make
Wellsboro an important point in the
great through route ' rom New York
and Philadelphia to t 4 e
north and west.
The grade on this route has been eon
sidered au objection to its adoption ;
but it seems the grade Is not so objec-:
tionable its has been thought. Recent
explorations show that a good, feasible
grade eau be obtained without any tun
neling, heavy fillings, or deep cuttings.
I speak from authority, in saying that
this route is considered the most feasi
ble to the west and north; Respectful
ly yours. T. E.

the judiciary is the balance wheel
which adjusts and modifies the two

may be made the contrivance to force
the whole machinery of government to

may become turbid and stagnant. The
condition of the judiciary in the me

the most startling evidence of this truth;
where it is said that " injustice may be
bought with' a price," and where the

The Amount of the Tammany Theft.
A writer - In One of tlie 247ew`tirk ta..
pers, who seems to,have studied his fig- .
ures carefully, makes the e i Memit Which
the Tammany thieves "haVe or
wasted in bribes_of some tiort to protect
their stealing, in 'the last 2A months,"
to• be " not less than fifty-?lnp millions
of dollars." The total sum received by
the city-government during this period
—from taxation, thesale of bonds, 'and
miscellane)us sources—he sets down at
ninety-nine millions of dollars. He
estimates the legitimate current expen
ses of the city to be $15,000,000 per year,
which'in two years would make $30,-
000,000. He then_ adds $5,000,000 per
year ' for permanent public itpprov
ments, giving an aggregrate of $10,000,-
000 in two years. He thus reaches $40,-
000,000 as the total expenditure for two
years, on the supposition that the gov-%
ernment of the city had been honestly
and economically conducted. Deduc
ting this from_the amount received in
the last twenty months, we have a bal
ance of $59,000,000, of which the thieves
have robbed the publics,. with., which
they have enriched themselves, and a
portion of which they have 'used in
carrying elections and bribing the hew.
islature of the State.
These figures, which we give upon
the authority of the writer referred to,
may dit be exactly correct; yet no one
doubts whether this Tammany rascal
ity preJents one of the most monstrous
instances of peculation and swindling
known in the history of the world. Its
bold daring,. its insatiable greediness,
its artful cunning, its corruption of leg
islation and the ballot box, ito persist
ent and determined iniquity, and its
fearful success, leave no doubt as to the
total depravity of these Tammany rob
bers. NoW that they have been tho
roughly defeated at the ballot box, let
them be hunted by the most vigilant
and uncompromising Justice. The peo
ple should not be content with simply
driving them from political power.—
Their ill-gotten millions should be re
stored to the city treasury; and then
the villains themselves should be pun-,
ished to the utmost extremity of the
law. A system of laws that contains
no adequate remedy for such crimes
against thopublie, would be little bet
ter than a mere sham. Thii great up
rising among the people is theirsolemn
and authoritative mandate, directing
the officers of law to bring these rob
bers to justice. If their escape, either
by negligence or legal technicalities,
the fact will be a burning disgrace to
Our Washington Letter.
WASHINGTON, (D. C.,) Nov. 29, 1871
THE A PPROACHING CONGRESS.
From year ta year the range of Con
gressional legislation has increased in
extent and importance. It is found
that as the country becomes older its
interests are more diversified, , and that
the old policy of allowing everything
to drift with the tide and take care of
itself,.can no longer be maintained.
Am'ong the new measures which will
come before Congress;, and upon which
the press and the people* ought to be
posted pro and con, are :
The organization of post office sav
ings banks, which will enable the peo
ple to have a savings bank that can ne
ver break, at each county seat or other
plaie of commercial importance. The
Government will pay for the use of mo
ney, from five dollars upwards, 8.85 per
cent., or one cent per day per- hundred
dollars, and transfer the deposits by
post office money orders to any locality
.within the United States free of charge.
The abolition of the telegraph mono
poly, and the establishment of aostal
telegraph system, so - thato ' iaeaesgas mm
be sent everywhere at a uniform. rate, ,
not exceeding twenty cents for ten
and one cent for every addition
The establishment of a bnreau of im
migration, to take charge Of the inter
ests of newly arrived immigrants, who
are now subject to very great and un
necessary hardships, by whioh means
immigration, especially Of the better
sort, is found to be impededand the Im
migrants demoralized. 1
The project of establishing a govern
vment insurance company, which will
insure all the real estate in the country
at a greatly reduced rate of premium;
and not be affected disastrously by such
a connagratipn as that of Chicago, will
also receive attention, as such an one is
now in successful operation in Germs-.
Measures for the better rotection o?
the ballot box will be devised, so that
the purcha'se and intimidation of vo
ters, the repeating and cheating going
w i i
on in New York city a 4 in the South,
may be checked, if not prevented.-
The tariff will also be revised, and
taxation diminished ; - d preliminary
legislation looking to and the resump
tion of specie payment, will undoubt
edly be enacted. Se4r Sumner and
other leaders are already moving in the
matter of specie payments.
Measures for the revival of our for
eign commerce and for the reorganize- ,
tieu of the civil service will be up for
disaussion ; and it being aPresidential
year, alrtheAelitioal qne tions of the
day Wiil be thoroughly considered.

which have so far been con , mplated.
The recent Judicial decision at Pitts
burg, in favor of the Catawl railroad,
will give that road an o portunity
which it will soon embrace, to build - a
line up from Williamsport to Cogan
House and thence to connect with the
Wellsboro and Lawrencevil a road at
Another new road, already hartered,
and which will probably be p t through
some time, is that from Litti Meadow's
to Canton,,Pa.4Lhorthning t e distance

But more important th n any of

recollected . that some yes ago Sir
Morton Peto and other En Dish. capi

on the eve of success, when they were
defeated -by the machinatiOns of the
Brie ring, and the project ras aban
doned. But the managers o the enter
prise were plucky, and. have eon work
fig steadily for success. They are now
extending their line from Salamanca
thus gaining one more length
toward the east. Last month, too,
both companiee consolidated, and the
Atlantic & Great Western road bids
fair to be one of the great ea 4t and west

the Catawissa road will be renewed,
and importantlchanges may be looked
for. That the consolidation road will
