The general expectation that Col. Casey t1
would be appinted collector of the port, has, to
it seems, been justified by the event. This
gentleman is. we have before remarked, not
unconnected with the President, and is not of
much addicteA to politics. He has, for some 1
time, resided in New Orleans, and has gained at
the good opinion of those to whom he has bi
become know). Mr. Stockdale, the new col- Cl
lector of inti nal revenue, has resided for re
some years in New Orleans as a deputy col
lector of the pi, t, in which position he dis- la
played good business qualifications. Mr. Pr
Stockdale is st advanced Radical in politics. di'
Of General L, 4-street, the new surveyor of to
the port, we pr~fer to say nothing, simply be- 0a
cause his history as a gallant Confederate t
officer is so well known that repetition would to
be superfluoun, whilst his history as a Re- a
publican polhtician would be neither agreea- chl
ble to the public, nor creditable to himself dui
It seems to Le certain that Mr. Washburne G
has resigned 1"s place as secretary of state, a
after an expereu-nce of two or three days, th
which, perhaps. sufficed to convince him that re
he had erred in accepting the appointment as ree
greatly as Genral Grant in making it. But "'
what Mr. Washblrne can have learned of him- tg
self, during these five days, which he did not tak
know before, it is impossible to conjecture. Ao
Possibly the office was conferred only to be rut
resigned, and as a recognition of the new ou
President of the debt of gratitude due to the
discoverer wbip had dragged him from the len
obscurity of t Galena tan yard. Possibly Put
Mr. Washburrw was disgusted with the com- blo
pany into which he found himself thrust and of
made baste to rid himself of connections an(
which would have been a continual source of der
annoyance ani mortification. Yet if he had le'
remained in the cabinet he might have gained tatu
more by the contrast with his colleagues, than s'n
he would have lost by association with them. p°o
An ordinary men is a giant by the side of a ads
pigmy, and Washburne might even have been frog
considered respectable in comparison with Un
his inexperieni cd associates. But the coon- sne
try, after all, never would have lost sight of we
the fact that, although he might be a tho
giant among such pigmies as Borie, and on
Oreswell and ('ox, he would be a pigmy in the
comparison with the long line of distin- ms
gnished mep who had filled the office of Cal;
secretary of state. From the beginning of PIS
Sthe century, down to the present time, that stat
office has been occupied by men distin- it w
guished in the country, or at least eminent in trt
their party. The presidency has been some- C
times the reward of factitious popularity, of
sometimes of partisan service, sometimes of subi
temporary availability. If, therefore, the Trit
exalted intellect and the tried statesmanship ro
et the country have, as a general rule, been a hi
precluded from occupying the executive for
ehair, they have found refuge in the state road
department. Look, for instance, at the line rout
of secretaries of state-Jefferson, Madison, sibil
Monroe, John Qluincy Adams, Clay, Van Bu. but
zen, Forsyth, \h ebster, ('alhoun, Buchanan, Ab
Clayton, Webster again, Marcy, Cass and freig
Beward--a line of intellect unbroken by intel- ship
leotual deficit ncis, and scarcely even im. son,
paired by intellectual tenuity-and after this qul
to find a cabinet headed by the name of Elihn regs;
B. Washburne! If anything were needed the

been usual for newly elected Presidents to whic
oonsult with thu experienced and eminent finisl
men of their party in regard to the forma- the
tion of their cabinets. It would have been arrar
safe, and more than usually becoming, in ment
Gen. Grant, to follow the beaten track. Never- lect
theless, the beaten track may sometimes be along
abandoned. THWe man who leaves it, is re- more
garded as a get. is when he reaches his ob. even

Gen. Grant deciltd to attempt the part which or t

tures of curiosity and proffers of advice; and to ra
intimated that his ambition was to surprise prove

he certainly hasnucceeded, for he constructed PaCts
a cabinet which amazes his adversaries, di-s. will e

even, apparently, the recipients of his extra- of th

The New York Tribune prefaces some edi
EANS. torial reflections on the acsual condition and
apparent prospects of the Union Pacie BRail
sa,. road with the ominous question, " Have we
a Pacific Railroad ?"
Well, it seems not. And that is not the
worst. There never will be, for there never
can be, a transcontinental railway over this
Union Pacific route, such as commerce wants,
and such as the world expects of American
9. science and enterprise. All that we alleged,
some months ago, as to the objectionable
features of this route, and as to the blunder
and swindle of the government subsidy
lavished upon the company which had
selected this route for the benefit of official
and unofficial speculators in wild lands and
visionary town lots, has been fully confirmed
Ras- by the experience of the past winter and by
the investigations of a special committee of
the United States Senate. With evident
reluctance to arrive at the damnatory con
clusion, the majority of this committee agree
that in locating the road its projectors have,
Swith a remarkable degree of exactitude, fol
lowed the snow line across the continent.
That is to say, the route coincides almost pre
cisely with what may be called the isothermal
'ou- line of the greatest annual snowfall from the
'res Pacific to the Atlantic within the boundaries
of the United States. In consequence of this
fact, though the road should be a model of
completeness in respect to workmanship, and
urd in respect to all accessory appointments, it
ner, would be liable to blockade from the begin
Fidl ning of the snow season in autumn to the end
cial of it in spring. The report of the committee ]
irr- above referred to tries to mitigate the start- (
tet, ling force of this naked truth by presenting c
it as the negative side of a problematical as.
sertion; saying that "it is an undetermined a
0ry probkm if the Union Pacific Railroad be- t
tal, tween Omaha and Sacramento can be oper
e. ated throughout the year." And hereupon
tey the report proceeds to review "the elements r
as, to solve this question" as follows : o

A demonstration attested in a manner that
leaves not the least room for doubt, dispu
d tation, or speculation. A few diys ago, and
n since the report of the Senate committee, the vil
1 postotlice department at Washington was
a advised by its special agent, in a telegram art
n from Laramie City, that for fifteen days the tie
h Union Pacific railroad had been blocked by wb
snow for a distance of two hundred miles
if west cf Cheyenne, and that thirty or forty rat
a thousand pounds of mails were detained I "'
on the line. After receiving this information h
Sthe postmaster general instructed the post- "P
Smaster at New York to send the mails fir t
f California and the Pacific coast by way of we
f Panama. Further advices from the West he
t stated that the road was still closed, and that ,
it was impossible to say when the snow bound frsl
trains would be able to run through.
Could anything exhibit the folly and fraud w
of this falsely located and extravagantly nl
Ssubsidized road in a clearer light'? 'The
Tribune's question, "Have we a Pacific Rail- tore
road ?" is answered. In the practical sense of e
a highway of commerce sand travel, as good f
for one season as for another, no P.cific rail- the
road exists, and the existence of one on the t
route selected in this case is a natural impos- +
sibility. A gun that can't shoot is not a gun, w
but a useless combination of iron and wool. cud'
A boat that can't cross water with either the
freight or passengers is as "idle as a painted t
ship upon a painted ocean." For a like rea- pre
son, the Union Pacific railroadl, without the t
quality of perennmal continuity, cannot be, as day
regards commerce and travel for about half ahi
the year, more than the picture or the mirage of bm
a road. Although it has already been paid dent
by the government between twentyaud thirty wa
millions of dollars, it cannot at this moment was
tmnsport for the government a soldier or a snot
mail bag over two hundred miles of its track ,e
which were long ago reported, officially, as carr
finished and in good working order. OnQu of
the worst aspects of the mIartt, r is that the Tax
arrant and scandalous favoritism of govern- a
ment towards this road has involved the neg- th
lect of transcontinental railroad enterprises read
along routes which are in all points of view I odn
more eligible. Nobody who has studied, de
even superficially, the railroad needs ani Fhi
practicabilities of this country doubts the pre- trn
eminent advanta:ges lof the route coinciding, hnar
or nearly so, this side the great western HiDn
mountain ridge, with either the thirty-second w- l
or thirty-first parallel. The public and pri- ,
vate funds squandered on the Union i' e
Pacific ILRailroad are tantamount to a 'he
corresponding degree of pecuniary injury 'Iey
to the true interests of the country in respet "pt.
to railroads and other works of internal im-.
provement. Suppose that the whole work of and
establishing railroad connection with th Ihen
Pacific along the snow line bef,_re indicated t.e
will cost one hundred millions. Then con- der:

of the road can not be depended on, and that he I
consequently about fifty per cent must be r
deducted from its utility and value. This walt

Iand Republican party in the early stages of that

Sthe The beloved Rawlins is Secretary of War.
His appointment seems to have been made in
this order not to disturb the symmetrical medion
rity of the administration. From the great
war minister Carnot to the little war minister
a, t Rawlins, there is about as great a descent as
from Napoleon to Grant.

ittee Radicals in the Senate are disgusted with

J. J. Johns, an old English printer, still con.
Stinues the publication of a curious paper, the Au- AE

Richard Grant White is out upon "being ;" he a
says we should say, " While the boy was whip- or
ping, the room was sweeping, the dinner was eat- the
ing, the cow was milking, the meat is cooking," t.
in other wo-ds, " it is being" is simply equal to
" it is." The use of such a phrase as " is being co.
done" for" is doing," is pure affectation. tle
Mr. ('atlin, the prairie traveler and artist, has r
communicated to Trubner's American and Orien
tal Literary Record the curious fact-if It should
prove to be a fact-that a great river, "larger

startling hygothesis to the world.

They formed a complete garland round the bottom

pleasing sensation at court- that of a perfect
American lady, with dignified but most affable

the large dinner which was given to the Chinese eaa
