A short time will suffice to decide whether we are
to have a railroad running by this place orinot. With
in two months, the point will be settled either for of
ag~aint us. The subscription books show nineg
thousand dollars in favor of our route. Some twenty
or thirty thousand have been subscribed by those who
prefer the Lot rottle. Coull we but add thirty-five
thousand more to what has already been secutre:l, tihus
makin. a total of one hundrcd and twenty-fite thou
saad collars. we milit walk into the ring with som1e
chances of success. Without it we will fail.
One effrt inore ought to he made. Let tts have a
meeting in the .Court Hlouse at this place some tiay be
fure lone, and let us attend it with the best railroaid
feeling. we can possibly muster. Let us all go to it,
whether we be professed railroad men, or profesred
anti-railroad minii. But let ts not meet tr. talk and
then do nothing. Rather let us meet to do somet hingi
that we taoy have it to talk about. Let every one,
who is at present a subzcrieL r, agree to add On to his
present subscription as much as lie can possibly afford.
Let eaci man go in to tie meeting with a fIlded piece
if paper in his hand, on the outside of which shall
he written hi, present sobseription and on the insite the
additiun he i< reatly to make thereto. Let every one
of these folded bits of paper be thrown into a hat to
he prepared for that purpose. Let the meeting h
called to orer as soon as the confusion attendant upon
tlhi proceedure shatll have somenihat 4ubsided. Let
the Secretary of the meeting then proceeil todraw out
and real eawh man*s addilitional subscription as com
pared with hi oriinil amouint. Let each man ad
vance to the bioks as his name is called and pit down
his sign ature and adili:ional sibscription. If it be
fttord that tire right spirit has been at work in oll
mnidst anti trial an increased amount has been mate
up. st flient to secure to us tlie manifoild advantager
of the propoed rairia:d. let us then talk, shout and

why then Iet us drip out, one he one. n% ilh downcast

Iere are three short extracts which occu7 to us as
being fraught with more interest than anything of a
political ciaracter we have seen passing round for a
week or two. The first has reference to the exhaust
ing efects of the. Russian war upon the fitantires or
England. It is from the Liverpool Times and runs
" War will snon prove itself to be as great an ex
hanster as fatiie. Tie c ost of our army for the pres

show no increase. The demand for the precions ilet

inifinitelv larger than at any former period of our his

does not supply a people w ithi money, and that in

Tim second e:ttract is from the New York Tribune

will sne for peace if 4ebastopol be taken! Why.
Rnssia has not played one-thirl of her trnmps yet,
and tie momentary loss oif .-ehasopol and of the
fl--ct is hardly felt at all by the giant, to whom Shas
topo anid the fleet were but a playthin. Roi:sia
Sknows lll well that her decisive action stoes not lie
along the sea shores or within reach of deharking
troops ; bitt, on the contrary, on the brand interior of
the continent, where massive armies can he bronght
to art concentrated on one spot, without frittering
I away their forces in a frnitless coast defence againt
evanescent cienies. Riisia may hiie the Crimia,
the Caucasus. Finland, St. Peterslmrg, anrid tll such
appendages; bitt na long as her body, wiith Moscow
for its heart, and fortified Poland for its sword-ari, is

Our third scrap is from the Union and throws a
little additional light upon a matter nearer our homes
and hearts. Speaking if the President's position tit re
gard to Cnba this paper Fays:
"9 lIe came into power resolved honorably to acquire
that islund. and he believes this duty to be hiiilin
on him still, no matter whether the qnetion is cotii'l
cred in it- relations to iumanaity, to comilnere", or to
freedoibm. While Spain adlheres to that island, and to
lhe miserle policy which has disgraced herauthority
there, it will be impossible to suppress the active syin
patthy of tusadimls in this country for thoite who siter
fron desoitii in sight of our shores. The seitle
cause.s will continue to annoy our merchants anId our
shiippers: and thus Cuba will lie no less a inagaizine
of diserntent to Spain %ti a pretext for arned epedi
tions from the Uiited States. It is inl view of till
I these cii-eunstances,::.ud others faiitliar to tihe world,
that the 'residetit. nihile wiertiy etiforcing our haws
