Thursday Evening, Feb. 2, 1871
The Enquirer, under the heading, " A
Mistake," haa »n ably written article prov
ing that' the idea lately promulgated, that
low through rates necessitate high local
rates, is cntiroly erroneous. It says there
never was a greater taistake, and that only
those vindicate it who maintain high local
rates, and they merely mako the assertion
"without deigning to submit any proof."
Wherever the principleof low rates has fatly
obtained the thkouoh rates aro mad* to con
tribute to the lessening of local rates, una it is
not an unusual thing to find that local freights
fall to pay expense of oarriage, and the (ot*
local tariffs are only maintained from the net I
earnings on (AreiinA freights. This principlo
governs where the duty of the railroad to the
public is recognizod, arid the road is not made
subservient to the interests of shareholders.
To establish tho correctness of this view
of the case, our contemporary quotes at
length from the annual report of a dis
tinguished official of tho Nashville and
Louisville railroad,—to disabuse;tho public
mind, which assumes it to be unjust that
through traffic should bo taxed at lower
rates than local freights, forgetful of the
fact that it is this ability to tax tho trade
of foreign sections which enables low
rates to local tonnage Thus tho offi
cial alluded to in Kentucky, discussing
this point, shows that
His company, in the year 1860, realized
$812,830 from through business, of which
58 76 100 per cent, was expended in operating
the road, leaving a net profit of $.135,21J,
equal to 36 47-100 per cent. "Thus, peop c
living at a distance, who had nothing to do
with the building of the road, contributed
largely towards making it a successful enter
prise. Nor aro the owners ot tho road alone
benefitted by this business ? Tho sum of
$477,622, operating expenses, was nearly all
expended along the line of the road, thus
stimulating trade by increasing the wealth of
the States through which the road passes.
"Now, if this business had not been secured
to the road at such rates ns could be attained,
it would have been necessary to have increased
the local rates 36 47-100 per cent. * *
* * * Hence, if the througa busi
ness is neglected, or is forced over rival routes
on account of high rates, tho local shipper
must either contribute the whole amount of tha
loss, or the owners of the road lose the interest
on their capital, in which latter onso the local
shippers must still furnish the entire operating
expenses, as otherwise the road would not be
kept in running order for any length of time.
The unavoidable result, therefore, would bo to
raise tho local tariff, while on the other hand,
with a large, through business, the company
would be enabled to lower it."
faster is, because of tho discrimination
made against that city in its rates by the
Is it true that Fredericksburg has opened
her batteries on tho stagnating corporation
that runs a rail line through her borders ? and
demands of her representatives in the Legisla
ture to vote for the application oi the Alex
andria and Fredericksburg company to extend
its road to Bichmond.
Verily, it is so. This splendid "old Burg,
whose men, and womea, and even chi'drcn,
illustrated true patriotism ami heroic eturalry
in our late strugglo, come now to ask relief
from the stifling grip ol the Richmond, Fred
ericksburg and Potomac road, which has made
their ancient and time-honored city a mere
flag-station on its line.
I also has an article in support of rail
consolidation, introducing an inter
» letter from a distinguished English
hant, Mr. John Evoritt, who is well
m here for his zeal in the cause of
t trade, to prove that tho assertion
itly made by a member of our Hodso
elegates, to the effect that tho policy
orsolidation no longer obtained in
and, but upon trial had been ex
id, was without foundation. We have
the room to give the letter; but the
tirer says of consolidation :
a value of "consolidation" in Virginia is
j demonstrated every day, both on the
'from Norfolk to Bristol, and on the Or-
Alexandria and Manassas road, and so
actorily to the latter that recently it has
ilidated another road, the Lynchburg and
title road, with its interests.

The Dispatch—we. had to look at tbe
heading of the paper to conviuee ourselves
we were not reading Brick Pomeroy s
Democrat.— still mourns over the downfall
of the Confc.loracy, and denounces the ]
"•knavish government" of the Unitid
States for overthrowing it. Under the |
bead of national mistakes, it has Borne very
doleful ;iamentatioDS over the lost Cause
—but it wind* up with a more hopefi..
view of the future, and admit* that tha
people of the South in cms of a foreign
war would d> their duty lika men, and
flzht for the nation.
Its theory it, that France and tho Con
federacy are parallel cases—both depended
on outside aid for success, and both wure
deoeived ; and, therefore, neither is under
any obligations to aid those who withheld
their aid, and have equally learned by ex
perience that no faith is to put in princes.
Says the Dispatch;
The lesson to tke South Is not lost. There is here
no sympathy wilb outside latlens-none of tnat
•ympnthy which would paraljr.. a southern arm in

DR. J. J. LAWRENCE—Dear Sir: Yonr Koakeo
a. worked wonders In my family. My daughter has
leen a sufferer from Scrofula einoe childhood. She
oat thirty-cne piece, of bone from her ankle, several
rom her arm, besides having ulcers In several part*
f the body. Whilst in this conditionshe commenced
akiug your Koskoo—it acted like a charm on her;
under its use the ulcers gradually healed, and ht-f
enoral health greatly Improvod. It certainly savrd
her much suffering, aud perhaps her life. I regard
Koskoo a specific for all screfulou. affections. Yonr.
Koskeo also cured my wife of dyspepsia, from which
•he suffered greatly. She I* now in hotter health
than she ha* been iv five years.
With the highoat regard,
I am gratefully yours, 4c,

of Chronic Disease is u«».its Indicated. Hopißg yon

each Ingredient highly extolled by our best and uic.t

and Invigorator of the animal forces, aiding diges
