And wakes the orphean string
Which breathes the trembling notes of love
In which the angels aing.

With glowing thoughts sublimo.

to her room, corner Second 3nd Market, and
found her ii company with Frank Edwards, a
waiter in a restaurant on Second street. She
introduced him to Edwards, and they exchanged
afetr common place remarks. Mrs, Dorrick
said she was going out, and prepared to put on
hr cloak and bonnet. Derrick wanted to go
with her; she refused his company and said she
wanted rio more to do with him. He then drew
a four, barreled Remington pistol and fired at
Edwards, shooting him back of the head. Ed

2Sis4or y oftiie Pacific Kaliroad.
The first railwd to the Pacific will be fin
ished in June of jjbis year, and the grand
opening will be on the 4th of July. It is
twenty-three years since this road was broach
ed by Asa Whitney, and it has had the sup
port of statesmen of all parties. Thomas H.
Benton wag its earliet friend; the explora
tions of his son-in-law, Captain J. C. Fremont,
threw light upon the physical geography of
the unexplored region, and prepared the way
for surveys under Franklin Pierce. Jefferson
Davis was tho Secretary of War under that
administration ; and under his auspices the
best talent of the army was enlisted m the
survey of the Rocky Mountains. Except the
northern route, the explorations were all in
charge of officers of the U. S. Topographical
The first was led by Governor Isaac I. Steph
enB, formerly of the regulars, killed at the
second battle of Bull Run in 1862. . His lines
were tho 47th and 49th north latitude. His
corps consisted of four parties, one under him
Belf, another under George B. McCIellan;
another under Lieut Doualdson, U. S. A., and
another under Lieut. Sexton.
The second expedition, under Captain Gun
uison, U. 3. A., started from Wostport Mo.,
and followed the valleya of the Kansas and
Arkansas rivers to the Rocky Mountains, be
tween the eangre del Chnsto (now a nart of
Colorado) and the Sevie lake. A portion of
the party, including tha brilliant Gunniion
himself, were massacred by Indians,
The command devolved upon Lieut. Beck
with, who proceeded to Salt Lake City whence
he extended his work along the 41st parallel,
cro3Bing the Sierra Nevada near Fort Read
ing, and thonce following th valley of the
Sacramento to San Francisco. This ia the
route substantially, by the great trunk road
to be opened.
The third expedition by Captaih Whipple,
U. S. A , was on tho line of the 35th parallel.
The fourth, under Lieut Williamson, U, S. A
fitted out at San Francisco, passed up the Sari
Joaquin and Tiilare valleys, explored sevaral

sections per mile, except mineral lands. r
It is also provided for issuing 30 year gov
ernment bonds to tho amount of $10,000 per
mile, for every section of -10 miles completed,
to the company such bonds constituting a
first mortgage onuhe railroad. Under thii net
and its amendment the road was copmenced
from both termini in the gloomiest period of
the war, and vigorously prosecuted. OntLc
latof January, 1867, there were completed
about 305, miles of the eastern division, ex.
tending within 100 miles of Denver, Col. ; and
it was progressing at tne rate of from one to
two miles per day. Of the western division,
156 miles east from Sacramento to the State
ine, was to be finished by July 1st. 18(57. and

experiments in artesian well boring, to deter

could be obtained.
These investigations showed rare sagacity,
and the results are embodied in four large vo'
umea with handsome illustrations, Maps, pro
files etc., showing the climate, productions,
animals and soil of the vast region of the
Rocky Mountains, of standard value in the
prosecution of this wonderful enterprise.

Between ten and eleven o'clock on Sunday
night, one of the Jersey City and Hobokon
horse cars was turning around the corner lead
ing from the swamp at the corner of North
Saventh and Piovost Streota when a rough
looking fellow jumped into tha car and sat
beside a young woman. He addressed so no
conversotion to her which was not heard by the
conductor, but the woman turned away from
him with a look of contempt. He then seized
and dragged hor to the platform, when the
conductor, o young German, who h?s boen
lately put on the cars, caught hold of him and
attempted to stop him, but ho was hurled over
the dash board and had his faco eeverelv cut.
The young woman screamed for help but the
ruffian soon hurried her out of aiffht. Th

grown man, who was cowardly enonf h tn t

driver was about to inlwrpoue when he saw a
revolver peeping out of the scoundrel's nnpt-f
and this was a dumper on him. Nothing fm.
ther has been heard from the villain or b;
victim. The locality where this occurred i
infested by villains whose prejenco renders it
hazardous for people to t-ayel there at night.

approached by two mysierious lookinir fellow
at the. game corner, when he drew a revolrer

Washington, April 8 In the senate Sumner
offered a joint resolution to rescind the reso
lution to adjourn Saturday and spoke opposing
speedy adjournment, desiring to finish the work
of reconstruction, to act on the Pacific railroad
difficulties, New York, election frauds, &o
Conkling said Sumner was always eppoaed to
adjournment. He did not bHieve he and John
son were confederates, but these two eminent
persons during the Johnson administration had
been conspirators to ksep congress perpetual
ly in seB3ion. Sherman and Howard opposed
Snmner's resolution, preferring to leave Virgin
nia, Texas and Missinsippi under military gov
ernment till the next session, when congress
could more propeily consider their cas.-s
Trumbull favored adjournment and advocated
a resolution to submit the constitution oftho.se
States to the p?ople thereof, which could-still
be done before Saturday. The senate refused
to rescind the adjournment resolution.
The senate then laid on the table the house
bill to submit constitutions to the people of
Virginia anl Mississippi.
