Tho Los Angeles Star publishes extracts ; just returned from a tcur tp iha East, where he
xtuc'ied the signs of the ttries all of which point
to a dsstructive rivil war and that at a very
early day. H savs that Jth nation is dying
from a letter read before the Louisville Con
Ttntiou which give much valuable information
regarding the operations and prospects of the
; Memphis, El Paso and Pacific B. It. Co. The
letter referred to is from Mr. Snethen, secre
tary and member or the executive committee
of the company. Mr, Snethen contends that th
nitderslood termini of this line Memphis and
San Digo aro its termini only in name, and
-that the real eastern terminus is Norfolk, in
Virginia. lie shows that the net work of rail..
roads in the United States crosses and re-
crosses this routhern diagonal line over the
continent and the passengers and merchan
dise transported over it way teach every port
on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, as well as
the ports on the Gulfs of Mexico and California.
"Work on the eastern end of this road is at
present being conducted with energy and vigor
A grsat part of the routebetwoen Jefferson and
Paris is now ready to receive the rails; two
cargoes of which are now being forwarded to
New Orleans. Savcral locomotives for the uss
of this road are being constructed in France,
while the Patterson Iron Works in New Jersey
. are alio turning out locomotives for the com
pany, and the Springfield, Hass, Car Works
aro building care, etc.
It is designed to have the first section of the
road in operation from Jofferjoa to Paris, by the
1st of March next, and to place the second sec
tion under contract forthwith.
Regarding the well known advantages of
climate and country which the 32d parallel is
known to offer for a trans-continental railroad
enterprise, the writer says : "Its course is over

hardly C, 000 feet above the levl of tha sea,
and over a mountain plateau with easy grades
instead of over mountaia pas'es and through
with progress on the brain and the idolatrous
worship of gold. Conscience is dead, and moral
rectitude is unknown in the common inter
course of men. Brains, cold and unscrupulous,
rule modern civilization Wth an imperious hand.
The brain hss'subjugatffthe heart, and every
gouerous irapuli- or tender emotisa of lean's
nature has been stifled and extinguished in the
mad struggin for gold waich now absorbs the
whole energies of the people. From the cradle
to the grave, but eae thought, one paramount
idea, rule-? the minds and actions of men, and
this is called progress. That Mammon is the
presiding deity in the organism of American
society as at present constituted, should, not be
a subject of wonder whejs it is remembered that
wealth it the only pasapqrt to social preferment,
Distinctions founded on casto or blood are
unknown. The African, the Asiatic, tho Hot
tentot, or the Indian, is the peer in native
rights and privileges of the gentlest blood in

struggle frr the acquisition of geld as it stands
in American society in the place of noble birlh
