W. Meade, an officer well kuown to the navy,
is confined in the Bloomingdalo Lunatic Asy?
lum in consequence of exerting too forcibly
his parental prerogative of objecting to thc
marriage of his daughter. It is 6aid that he
took umbrage at tho report that an accepted
suitor for his daughter's hand h id marlo her
acquaintance while ou a regular wife-nuntin"
expedition, instead of meeting by chance,
usual way, and that be therefore advised
bridegroom togo for an undertaker instead of
clergyman. Commodore Meade was then
raigned before a police justice and placed tinder
bonds to keep tho peace; but as soon as these
w.;re furnished he was again arrested and senl
to Bloomingdale under thc ccrtificato of two
Toombs physicians. Then thc marriago tool,
placo. An attempt has been made to secure
his release on a writ of h ibias coipvs, but the
judges were so busy with thoso terrible Erie
fellows that they could give no attention
such matters at present. Meantime frionds
the Commodore have visited him and pro
nounce bim as sano as the majority of men
outside of the asylum. Ono of his counsel states
that "physicians and others who have seen the
Commodore since his confinement are rca
to make oath as to his sanity, aud every
diligence is being used by his friends
obtain his releaso, believing as they
that a desire to break bis will, by which
it is said bc has digi nh or i ted certain-members
of his family, has led to this most infamous
persecution. Indeed, so positive have been the
assertions of all who have seen him, other than
thoso interested in his confinement, as to his
perfect sanity, that his family have ordered
that no ono, not even his legal advisers, bo al
lowed to see him. These instructions tho offi
cers of the asylum have carried out to tho let
ter, and thero is great danger that tho inhu
man treatment to which he is subjected may
bring about the result which his family seem
to desire, namely-his actual iusanity." An
investigation will shortly tako place at which
thc matter will bo fiually decided upon.
TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 8, 18(38
Tile Completion of thc Savannah and
charleston Railroad and its Effect
upon thc State.
We explained yesterday that the Savan
n?-h and Charleston Railroad,-which cost
before the war, three million of dollars
and has now for its only debt the bonds
guaranteed by the State, amounting, with
the accrued interest, to less than eight hun
dred thousand dollars,-is now before the
Legislature asking for authority to issue
first mortgage bonds for five hundred thou
sand dollars (o secure the prompt comple
tien of the road. We stated, in general
terms, that in this instance the interests of
the State, of this city, of the bondholders
and of the stockholders, who now control
the road, were one and the same; and now
propose to give our reasons for asserting
that the opening of the Savannah and
Charleston Railroad must be of vast advan?
tage to tue public at large, and especially
to the residents of the thickly-settled coun
ties through which it chiefly passes.
At present, the only communication be?
tween Charleston and Savannah is by steam?
er, or by railroad via Augusta. The length
of the journey by rail, and the dislike
which many persons have to even the short?
est trips by sea, have checked the current
of travel between the two cities, until Sa?
vannah his been made to seem almost as
difficult of access as New York or Balti?
more. Eut as soon as a journey of four or
five hours' duration is all that separatee
Savannah from Charleston, travel will re?
commence with more than its old force, and
will soon prove a source of profit to the
merchants of both cities. There is, beyond
this, the through passenger travel, which
is of far more importance than the travel
between Charleston and Savannah. Last
year more than ? te thousand persons tra7
elled from the North to Florida, and return?
ed when the warm season began. This
year it is expected that at least twelve thou
snnd persons will visit that State; and the
large majority of these would indubitably
pass over the railroad from this city to Sa?
vannah if it were open for traffic. There
is also in contemplation the establishment
of a line of steamships between Florida
and Havana, and other West India ports,
which would tend to BWCII the volume of
passenger travel. And it is not too much
to say that the reopening of the Savannah
and Charleston Railroad, in connection with
the Atlantic and Gulf Railroad now open
to Bainbridge and being pushed rapidly on
to Mobile in a direot line, will complete
the easiest, safest and quickest line of travel
between the Northern States and the Gulf.
The light grades of the seacoast route ad?
mit of high rates of speed combined with
thorough safety, and, within a few years of
the completion of the connections upon this
through seacoas' line, we expect to see the
trovellcr taken from New York to New
Orleans in fifty or fifty-five hours.
Many of the through passengers would
stay a day or two in Charleston, which
would then become one of the chief places
on the great through line, and ever)' pas?
senger would, directly or indirectly, con?
tribute something to ike trade and business
of the city. Every dollar added to the'
value of real estate here, and every addi?
tional dollar of business done, is a benefit
to thc -rrhole State, because the taxation is
upon the value of property and tho amount
of business traDESiicsL As Charleston
grew rich so would the general ratio of tax?
ation bc lesseued, while there would be but
few parts of the State which would not feel
sensibly the hapi.y effects of her growth
and good fortune.
But even these thing3 would be as noth?
ing ia comparison wita the gain to the low
country, by thc opening up of the now rail?
road linc-for new it will assuredly be in
system, management and policy. Thc Sa?
vannah and Charleston Railroad traverses
one of the richest and most fertile* sec!ions
of the State. Cotton and rice arc now
raised there in large quantities, and (heir
production mu?t be greatly increased by
improved railroad communication; and there
is a mine cf wealth in the virgin pine for
eats, which are probably the finest on the
continent. Already the pine forests of the
North and of the British colonies have been
cleared so far from thc water courses that
the cost of hauling to the river sides swal?
lows up the greater part of the usual profit.
Lumber must be had, and in the region be?
tween Charleston and Savannah, with the
railroad open, it can bc cut to botter ad?
vantage than in any other place of which
we have knowledge. In addition, there
would bc naval stores, of which the pro?
duction need only be limited by the labor
bestowed upon them. In the same region
may be grown many kinds of tropical fruits,
which would find a ready market hero and
in the North, forming, with the cultivation
of early vegetables, a business of large
profits upon a small outlay. All these
benefits of local passenger traffic, of through
passenger traffic, of tho increased pro?
duction of cotton and rice, of the foun?
dation and development of a trade in
lumber, and of the establishment of the
business of cultivating fruits and vegeta?
bles, would grow out of the early comple?
tion of the Savannah and Charleston Kail
road. And if these were not enough, we
might call in the phosphate rocks to turn
the scale; for there is reason for believing
that they also may be found in the region
whose immense resources fr? have striven
The value of this to the city and State,
and to the now impoverished colored popu?
lation of the low country, it is not difficult
TUE PROPOSITION to make the intercst'and
principal of the State debt payable in New
York seems to be a good one. We do not
doubt that within three years South Caroli?
na bonds will sell at par. Cincinnati is
moving in the Blue Ridge Railroad matter,
we are glad to see. Th 3 particulars of what
ii proposed to bo done with the debt of thc
State will be found in our Columbia letter,
published this morning.
IT WILL bo seen by our Columbia corres?
pondence that steps are being taken for the
redemption of the "Fire Loan" bonds and
for the conversion of the stock of the Slate.
THE REPORT of the Commissioner of Agri?
culture for the year ending Novembor 30, says
that the system of agricultural collogcs is yet
in its infancy, and much difficulty is experi?
enced in getting competent men for thoir man?
agement, but tbc commissioner believes that
theso schools will ultimately prove powerful
co-laborers wi* h his department in advancing
the agricultural interests of the country. Ho
Sods matter of genera) encouragement in the
fact that moro s.ablo views and systematic
practico with respect to farming are begiiininj
to provail throughout the country; that thero
is a laudable disposition in tho South to pro?
duce meat and broad, and held cotton as a
surplus; that farming is now held iu greater
esteem than it.was a few years ago ; that West?
ern farmers aro learning to practico rotation
of crops. He alludes to thc morbid tondency
in thc South since tho closo of tho war to emi?
grate to Mexico, Central America and Brazil,
and says that ho has done ali ho could to
counteract it ; that tho discordant social and
business olemonts arc being tranquillized ; that
Northern capitalists are beginning to seek an
eu'.raneo to the Southern States, and that
tilings generally at the South are much moro
promising than they wero last year. He thinks
that fully $40,000,000 worth of cotton has been
destroyed by tho worm, but that wo shall still
show a yield of from 2,000,000 to 2,309,000
Mn. HENRY SEDLEY, who has long beon the
chief oditor of that admirable journal, tho
Round Table, has now become its solo proprie?
tor, and will continue to conduct it in tho samo
spirit and style as heretofore, but with varioua
improvements which will add greatly to its in?
terest and value. While thoroughly indepen?
dent inletters as woll as in politics, though m
respect of the latter rather giving its sympa?
thies *o theDemoeratic party, the Round Table
Iras gained ti high position in our periodical
literaturo. It has solved with success to itself |
the problem whether a weekly journal of ele?
vated character, devoted to original criticism
in all spheres of public concernment, could
exist in this country. It has combined dignity
of character with ample irocdom of discussion,
and independence of feeling with good man?
ners; and with thorough scholarship it has
known how to bo always fresh, interesting and
attractive. Among tho new features which aro
promised, is a regular review of public amuse?
ments; a chess department, to be conducted
by an oxpert (Mr. Sedley is himself one of tho
first chess players of the world J ; and a suc?
cinct summary of thc news of tho day.
THE NEWS FROH HAVANA indicates an oarly
closo of tho Cuban insurrection. Several
chiefs and agents of the insurrectionists havo
arrived at Havana as prisoners of war. Dr.
Felix Figurodo, a rebel chief, addressed his band
after tho battle at Cobre. He assured them
that the cause was lost, and urged them to ac?
cept the amnesty olfored them. His fallowers,
however, declined to act upon his advice,
whereupon ho, exclaiming that ho did not wish
to aid in the ruin of his country, pointed a
pistol at his bead and blew out his brains. It
is not improbable that the next news from
Cuba will hiing intelligence of thc end of the
IT is NOTEWORTHY that no rogrot is express,
ed, even by tho Republican journals, at tho
burning of Fort Lafayette. The Now York
Titnes frankly says : ,lIt had beon utterly use?
less for military purposes, aud the memories
ot our civil war connected with it were not
such as cither sido cares to cherish. Rebels
and thoso who sympathized with thom, a.id
who had suffered imprisonment within its
walls, oTcd it a special grudge, and regarded
it as a relic of tho 'tyranny' ander which they
had suffered-and loyal men look.d upon ii, as
upon many of the other agencies of (he war,
with a good dca', more of respect than affection.
But pretty much everybody is glad it has gone,
and nobody desires to have it rebuilt."
A PROPOSITION has just been made to aban?
don the catiro existing system of collecting tho
revenue, und assess direct taxteupon thc State??.
Thc seliomo requires that but ono assessment
and ratio ofbusiiicss, profits and incomes should

assessment and ratio, to thc respective States,
