THE A N T I - S L A V K It Y BUGLH.
RIDE ON A RAILROAD.
I well remember the timo when the first railroad
was being built in tSe ncigliborliood fci which
I lived. Its construction was a matter of as grea'
curiosity to the people ns was Burniim'e Fegee
niermnid, or his wooly horse; and when the train
made its first trip, and the iron horse, instinct with
life, came thundering titer the track, thousands
were the re to witness the Inauguration of a new
era in the history of locomotion.
In those dnjs, the record of railroad trip pos
eessed as much attraction for the people, as naw
'does a description of the nsotnt of Mont Blanc.
But we have lived fivM since then; railroads have
become common property, and he who has never
travelod upon one is regarded with Icelings ol
Commiseration. The Locomo'ive has grown into
an American institution, and the very wolves and
tears of tho far Went aro getting accustomed to
ItsVtirill whistle and honrso voice. Yet it is of a
tailrosd, and of railroad traveling I ant about to
tpeak, but not, I assure you, of an ordinary tail
frosd. Not many miles south of one of tho great thor
oughfares from east to west, is a railway some ten
miles in length, connecting the city of Carrolltpn,
Carroll county, Ohio, with a branch of the Pitts
burgh and Cleveland railway, which it intersects
at Oneida. How much wire-pulling was done by
the projectors of the railroad; how many meet
ings were held by the citizens of Carroll county
before public sentiment was brought to a white
heat; how lavish was the expenditure of eloquence
on the part of its friem's; how many unspoken
hopes were entertained Unit Carrullton would be
the great central railroad depot, where on the one
hand, California would bring tho riches of her
mineral wealth, and on the other, New Englnnd
send her importations and her manufactures, it is
not for me to declare. Suffice it to sny, the rond
was built, and cars have been running upon it fur
some four years.
Having occasion to travel in that part of the
country, I found myself and baggage landed at
the Oneida station, where, with several other pns
engors, I took the train for Carrolllon. Before
starting, however, I examined cur travelling ap
pointments, and as I have a good deal of tho anti
quarian about me, (elt u thrill of delight on be
holding the blessings which fate had in store. To
begin as near the foundation as possible; there wos
a. railway built after the good old fashioned pat
tern, with strap rails. How pleasant was their
look of meek humility 1 How different from the
bold, and upstart attitude of the modern T ! They
brought me back to the almost forgotten days of
snakehead accidents, as wore totmcd tho efforts
sometimes uiadn by tho loosened end of a strap
rail to startle travellers by passing throu,;ti the
bottom of a car. But the Locomotive was what
delighted jiio most, for I was assured, by good nu
tbmity, that it was the first one brought to this
country the English sire of all our iron horses.
'Old Whiley" was never npproached with more
reverence by the admirers of UeneruL Taylor, than
I felt, when I npprcached "Old Bl.vckev." Its
voice indicated an asthmatic affection, its limbs
were feeble with excessive toil, age had traced its
impress upon its form; and tho pour old slavo of
man will ere long, drag its lust load. But it was
in its fitting place; no modernized railroad would
have suited it; first experience was upon strap
rails, it is well its last should be.
I am informed that the Carrollton Railroad Com
pany has a passenger cur, but however that may
be, there was nono used on this trip. Our train
consisted of a house car laden with barrels of salt
and a platform car laden with the same. We took
our places upon the latter, and off started the en
gine, puffing and wheezing, and attaining with
great effort a spend of about four milos an hour.
The day was cool as is apt to bo the case with
days in December and though tho passengers felt
rather chilly, nil appeared tj be in a good humor.
There were soven or eight of us in all; the only
woman in company was a Temperance lecturer,
and as we also had two nnti-sluvery lecturers on
board, it would be safe to say that the reform sen
timent was fully represcrted on the Carrollton
train. The wooding station of tho company con
sists of an unpreta iding wood-pile in tho woods.
Their watering tank has been prepared by nature,
and although to dip up with a bucket all the
water tho Locomotive needs is doubtless incon
venient, on tho grrund of primitive simplicity the
plan is :.n attractive one.
The conductor of tho traiu was as jovial and
gentlemanly a conductor as ever I met with oblig
ing and communicative. I conversed with him
upon the dangers ot Carrollton railroad travelling,
and he informed me that not unfrcqueutly the curs
ran off the trnck, though fortunately their speed
of travel was not so great as to endanger the lives
of passengers, or produce any other bad result ex
cept detention, which of course would be much
less annoying, and a less positive loss of time
when travelling four miles an hour, than in going
forty. "Is there no danger from collisions on this
road?" I queried of the conductor. "A'crer!" was
the emphatic reply, "unless we unexpectedly meet
a cow. If we see one on the track we always
twitch off until she passes."
The engineer imprefsed me as a man of ski!!,
agility and decision. It required not only all the
ordinary talent of an engine driver to manage
Old lilackey.Ual there neded to be super added to
this, an rye quick to detect, and a hand prompt to
adjust all displacements in tho machinery. 1 saw
that the office of engineer on the Currollum rail
road was no sinecure. About half the timo he
was engaged in feats of agility that v ould have
delighted a circus manager. The upper part of
his body would suddenly disappear through the
window immediately in front of his stand, and
while his hands were engaged in tightening a burr,
bis foet would be making wonderful gyrations in
the air. Sometimes he would stop the engine,
leap upon the giouud, and commence mysterious
ly screwing, or unscrewing, or hummering as the
necessities of the case required. My reverence
for antiquities befog greater than my fear of steam,
by permission of the engineer, I rode for a time
upon Old lilackey, and was delighted with tho ex
periment. Before we had accomplished half the distance
to Carrollton, I had thought of pioposing to the
other passengers that we hold a mooting, and adopt
resolutions commending tho conductor for his gen
tlemanly treatment and safe conduct; and had it
been customary on such occasions to include the
engineer, I should also have alluded to hit servi
ces, but you know engine driving is hardly con
sidered respectable enough for that yet, though
such opinion I rega-d us a great mistake. I said
I had such thoughts. But alas I for the resolutions
commending "Charlie," and alus! for the silver
plate we might have voted him, the latter part of
our journey was not 10 prosperous as the former.
"Of all the sad words of tongue or pen,
The saddest ae these, it might hate been."
Our mishaps commenced by jolting off one of
the company's buckets; ilea came, the tuort serious
affair of being obliged to detach tho house
with its sovonty barrels ol salt, because we wero
not able to drag It over the up grade tall could'n1
save it. Next, the engine pumps refused to work,
und some other derangement of machinery occur'
red which allowed the too rnpid escapo of the
steam. The train came to a dead stand, water had
to bo thrown upon the fire, and for a short time the
engine and its occupants were enveloped in a cloud
of steam that hid them from mortnl eyes. I was
somewhat npprehensive of danger frdm an explo
sion, but remembering that when a railroad acci-
dent doti occur, tho enginect and conductor gen
erally escape without harm, I concluded it would
bo snfo fur mo to watch the motions of our engineer
nnd when ho ran, follow him. There ws, bow
ever, no occasion for running, nnd the train was
soon again progressing. About three hours or
perhaps less after our departure from Oneida,
wo entered Carrollton in splendid style, nnd wore
received by a concourse of some three or four per
sons, who had assembled to witness the arrival of
the Carrollton cars.
Thus ended my first rido on the Carrollton rail
road, und upon the first Locomotive thnt ever ran
in Amoiicn. I shall ever remember it wih the
deepest satisfaction as a ride hallowed by the asso
ciations of antiquity. The Carrollton railway is
one of the connecting links which bind tho Present
to tho Past. It furcibly illustrates the American,
spirit of compromise, for while it is in name as in
iael n railroad, and therefore to some extent iden
tified with a progressive age, it is in practice so
conservative, that those ancient ge.itlemcn who re
gard ox teams as affording sufficiently fast travel,
can find but little to object to in tho speed of the
Carrollton cars.
The character of tho stock of this Company dif
fers materially from other railroad stocks. It has
no fictitious value, nnd is not subject to the fluctu
ation of tremendous advances and alarming de
pressions, and thus offers no inducements to spec
ulators to buy and sell. I has a substantial 6ona
fide value, and he who buys it, buys it to hold.
The motto of tho road is "Slow, hut sure," nnd I
have been repeatedly assured they have never de
viated from the plan of action herein assumed. I
was told of a traveller w ho, on a certain occasion,
overtook the train when within five miles ol Carr
ollton; the Conductor more accommodating than
Conductors usually are politely invited him to
step on board. Ho at first seemed disposed to
comply, but looking at his watch, he said it was
then 8 o'clock, and as ho had to be in Carrcdlton by
10, he feared he could not take timo to ride. 3 here
was a temptation asking for an abandonment of
principle; ly increasing the speed of tho train,
even in a slight degree, a passenger might have
been secured; but the cenducmr was incotrupti
blc, and tho traveler walked ahead. In summer
time passengers by the Carrollton train will some
times pick berries on the road, feeling tho com
fortublo nsMiraneo that they can easily overtake
iho cars without exlra baste. Some also stop to
trarsct business with those whoso homes are
near, and unless tho detention is considerable,
tliey never think of waiting over for another train.
These and siinilur facts go to show thai "Slow
but sure" is not only tho motto of the road, but
the practice of its management.
There are those who now as did some afore
timedespise the day ot small thiegs, and be
cause the Carrollton road is limited in extent, and
ancient in its build, regard the company very much
as was a certain political party regarded some two
years since, when it was declared to be "outside of
all healthy organizations." If I mietake nat, the
law of railroad courtesy, gives to the upper crust
employees of railroads, together with their fami
lies, a freo passage over any road they choose to
travel. To tho credit of tho managers of the
Carrollton railroad be it said, they have always
observed tl'is law; and t" tho shame of some other
companies be it spoken, a fow Imve refused to "Re
ciprocate." Why these are so unjust, I shall .not
pretend to say. I have, however, heard it suggest
ed that the probable ground of their refusal is
based upon the following assumptions : Firstly.
that the building of tho Carrollton railroad in
volved n less expenditure of means than many who
are frequent railroad travellers would pay in pas
sage money in the course of 11 few years; and that,
Secondly, to "Promulgate and give eclat" to the
Carrollton railroad according to tho law of rail
road courtesy, would encourage the building of
many other roads of n similar character by those,
w ho having much travel to do, would construct
such n railway in order to thus secure a freo pas
sago over till uther railways at a far less expense
than ordinary passage money. Whether such rea
sons exist, and if they do, whether they are valid,
must bo left to nn intelligent public to decide
I might ay much more about this unique rail
way with strap rails, and its ancient Locomotive
travellingone half the time crab fashion, always
keeping its head toward the city of Carrollton, as
if it would bo disrespectful to do otherwise. But I
have already made this article longer than I de
signed, for which tho importance of tho subject
must be ny apology. B. S. J.
Dear Friend Robinson: It has been our privi.
lego uf late to form acquaintance with nnd listen
to the story of the wrongs of thnt unfortunate Slave
mother. Sojourner Truth, who has experienced in
her own person for forty years, the awful conse
quence of being born a slavo. Or ull the sufferers
at tho hands of tyrants, none drink sn deep of the
cup of sorrow and drain the veiy dregs nf human
misery, as the slave-mother. It is really affecting
to listen to the narrative Sojourner gives of her
early life as a heathen and her conversion to Chris-
nanny, bo strong are tier appeals 10 mo sympa
thies of her audience, that they are often in tears.
Iu her sablo Arms 6he bears the oppressors of her
race to the feot'of tho lovely, gentle Jesus, nnd asks
him to forgive. She asks the oppressor to cease to
du the wrung, that she may net have to appear as
"a swift witness against him." What a lesson is
this to slave-holders, and slaveholders, "uiders and
abettors. Sojourner Truth the significant name
she bears is but a fair index of her character. She
leaves a whole volume of truths wherever she la
bors in her mia.-iin ol love and morcy, drawn from
her own eventful life as well as from the open book
of nature in w hich she "reads as shu runs." Her
first lesson was given her by her mother, who alone
with her iu the evening, pointed to the stars ana
ihe moon, and said, "when I am gone and your
master abuses you, remember there is a Goo who
nits in the sky." She adopted urn as her t-'acher.
of whom she has learned those lessons of love and
wisdom that enlarge tho soul and give it bound
less sympathy. Of that eduoatiun of which the
tiabbling schoolman boasts, she knows nothing.
Yet she is truly an educated woman, having gra
dunted at the "hiyh College," the teacher of which
sits enthroned upou the unit-cm, giving evidence
of bis goodness and mercy in the morning when
he rolls back the darkness of night and raises
the "luminary of day." Again ftt noon, when tb(
carjrays of the sun warm and invigorate nil animal
nature at evening
"Drips nlgM' a. Me curtain dowa
A i.J pi 111 It wltti .tar."
Sojourner held sis meetings in this nnd ad
joining neighborhoods, houses filled with attentive
listeners, -the bread she caRt upon tho watere we
shall be many days gathering.
The best evidence of the successful labors of
any one in ant cause, is "the fruit." At the
close of her Inst meeting, a gentleman arose and
said, " Ladies and gentlemen, when one is eon
verted he may as well otrn tin. I have always
been a Democrat and a persecutor of abolitionists
in view of that fact I couldn't look this woman
in the face, so I took my seat in front of the
desk with my back towards her. This woman
has spoken tho truth, I feel that a great work
has commenced in my soul." I liko that kind
of preaching that reaches the heart,' '
To the readers of tho Bugle who have not the
blighting mildew of cast upon their souls, let
me sny, Do something for the poor slave-ninther,
by inviting Sojourner to your neighborhood (and
see to it thnt she has way to Ret there), and
call mi clings, help her to sell the little but in
teresting narrative of her life, (for her benefit ns
well as thnso who buy it,) nnd when you take
your transition you will have the consciousness
of having done nt least one good deed.
I have all confidence in the great heart of the
American people. Could the gr.spcl of anti-slave.
ry reach that heart, not a slave would bo left to
pi no in hi chains. That heart is too much in the
keeping of "spiritual advisers" and unprincipled
political leadors, whose blind seal far "democra
ey ana the union lias iiicrurted and outcrusieu
their souls to that extent, that they make nil fair
in politics, be it lying, cheating and the worst of
trickery; and those who excel best at the game.
are promoted to the highest t fSce. The people
hnvo been so often deceived by their guides, tun1
they aro losing confidence in them and are be
ginning to think for themselves. The small amount
of free speech that is tolerated in some parts, has
set tho whole country in convulsions. Free di.
eussion, close criticism, thorough investigation,
will gain tho victory for the "brotherhood of mnn
nnd the fatherhood of God."
Yours for universal liberty,

A WORD TO BOOK BUYERS.
M.vrius: The unpretending, but very conscien
tious Principal of the Sandusky Union School, has
published a book, modestly entitled "Moral Les
sons." Tho Title ia exceedingly appropriate. The
compilation contains nothing scientific, except what
appertains to Ethics. Nothing fanciful or exngcr-
ated.
Tho lessons nre brief nnd simple; replote with
instruction in relation to our duties; set furth iu
concise narrative.
But the peculiar excellence of T. M. Cowdrey's
book will bo found in its questions for "special and
varied application." Iu these there is a marked
deviation from the marginal routine of popular
schotd books in this, that to answer them, the
scholar is required to think rather than to remem
ber. It would bo a pleasant and profitable employ
ment to discuss those questions in the family circle,
by the evening fire side, previous to its introduc
tion as a school book, and this will be, ns soon as
parents nnd preceptors shall be prepared to appre
ciate Truth for its inherent quality, irrespective of
embellishment shall learn to prefer a woman in
plain attire to a belle decorated in tho most ap
proved fashion.
Who can fail to wonder how in so good n selec
tion, tho Nave s wrongs are unnoticed r J rue,
tho principle that would free him is clearly laid
down, and the enquiry obtrudes itself, is tho "spe
cial application" loss needful here, than in cases
of less frequent, and less painful suffering T
It is hoped that the author is too much of a man
to bo deterred from demanding justice, until pub
lic opinion demands it of him. One on the high
moral plane which he occupies, should lead, not be
led. Let him bo assured that popular sentiuient i.-
fur in the rear of his inculcations. What are pre
sumed to tie living truths to tho compiler, are only
veritable abstractions to mnny readers; but let him
not be discouraged; "Moral Lessons" will disturb
the rest of sleepers; in future works let him wake
them up, not so much by "varied" as "special application."
Call fur the book nt MoMilfun's; take a chair in
the corner; read the article "Carefully listen to
conscience, nnd always obey its commands " pngo
87. If vou'tliink it really good, buy two copies, one
for homo use, and one to lend to poor peopls. If
you do not wish your children's integrity to exceed
the popular standard, lay the book down, pro
nounce it insipid, nnd say "Joel, have you the his
tory of Whittingtoti and his cut, the Mother goose
story book, or other books with odd high colored
pictures that will please my children, at small
cost?" G.
