-The necessity for mother Pacific Railroad is

"On the 30th it commenced snowing while we
went through the mountains. On the 1st Inst.,
we found the ground covered with snow some
four taches deep, but by the next day, as we des?
cended the east slope of the Rocky Mountains, all
signs of snow disappeared, and the change of
temperature was manifest. Some persons who
have lived in the mountains several years, in re?
ply to our inquiries, expressed the opinion that no
efforts of the company could make this road pas?
sable through the winter, and although the snow
sheds are built with great strength and at an ex?
pense of about twenty thousand dollars per mile,
yet those who have witnessed the terrible snows
on the mountains and the crashing avalanches of
"snow slides," as they arc called, expressed the
opinion that the snow sheds would tie swept away
by them. lu fact, it is nearly the universal opin?
ion that the road will be impassable for a consi?
derable part of the winter, and all appear to con?
cur ta thc necessity of a Southern Pacific Rail?
The Working Classes.
The war displayed the wonderful re?
sources and effectiveness of American labor.
It is estimated that more than one-third of
the laboring class were in the army. Yet
notwithstanding so great a dram there were
labor-saving machines enough, and mechan?
ics and agriculturists enough, to cultivate
thc soil, to manufacture arms and equip?
ments for the army and navy, to produce
food for the people at home, and to main?
tain the credit of the rival governments
abroad. Thus the war not only exhibited
the progress and power of tiie btates-it
was the apotheosis of American labor.
Naturally enough, tho working classes
are conscious of this. They know how im?
portant an element they form in the national
constituency. And they naturally desire to
win a just recognition, and to exercise an
appreciable iniluence in the conduct of pub?
lic affairs. Hence the eight hour law, the
numerous strikes, the general unrest appa?
rent among this class of our citizens. They
desire a broader scope and demand a higher
remuneration for their labor.
That whatever is just in the demands of
workingmen will be accorded to them we
have no doubt Their services are indis?
pensable to the community, and their claim
to live and to thrive by their beneficent min?
istry cannot and must not be denied. But
let the laborer keep clear of the politicians,
who will squeeze him like on orange and
then throw him contemptuously aside.
The workingman is a political economist,
not a politician ; a bread-winner, not a wire?
puller. His duejnfluence is to be exerted
in concert with other classes, and not in
hostility to them. His interests are not a
monopoly, but harmonize with the general
prosperity. His point of vantage is among
his fellow-citizens, and only when he forms
a clique under the control of a demagogue
may he expect and deserve defeat.
It must have been prescience which in?
spired the fierce onslaught upon the judici?
ary, of which the Charleston Club-House
was the scene and the black February of
1868 the epoch. Our readers will remember
with what ferocity of invective the chair?
man of the loyal, virtuous and intelligent
body who then and there demolished the
State of South Carolina, denounced the
bench ss the constant bulwark of oppression
and tyranny. Surely the chieftain of the
Mackeys was gifted with .second sight; he
foresaw the coming woe, and already armed
himself to battle for his clan.
To-day the predicted hour bas come. A
peaceable gentleman of his race, sufferirjg
from a violent attack of morphine, became
the victim of strange hallucinations; he went
a-shooting in the Council Chamber; he made
game of the city fathers. Coffee was the
antidote he needed, but, to his bewildered
fancy, coffee was connected with pistols, and
he took the'latter instead, and sought to ad?
minister the renredy by clutching the stock
in bis hand and pulling wildly at the trigger.
The weapon was a defensive one and ought
not to have gone off ; out then it must be
remembered that it was taken at unawares.
The pistol was not so much to blame, after
all ! And as for the conduct of the Alder?
men, that was admirable. Had the dignity
of the State been endangered, they would
bave sat serene as the Roman Senate at the
irruption of the Gauls, and perished to a
man. But with a condescension that does
them infinite credit they entered into the
fun of the thing. Tuey romped around with
the agility of Pickwick at the review. Th) y
humorously ducked under tables anu slid
down banisters. As the patient gigantic
Stoker said of his lithe virago of a wife, who
was trying to beat him: " Let her go on !
"she doesn't hurt me, and it does ber good !"
So the gallant Council dealt with a distin?
Now, we would like to ask, what business
a tyrannical, despotic judge bas with this
little fraternal celebration? If there was
smoke, it has cleared away; if there were
pistol shots, nobody was hurt; if there was
excitement, that was not extravagant in
view of the precious moral conveyed.
Heretofore, we make bold to say, that no?
body ever suspected the ferocity and explo?
siveness of morphine. In comparison with
it, kerosene is harmless. Henceforth, let
every'Alderman confine himself to gas. We
have also learned with great satisfaction
that the City Council are invulnerable. They
have survived such arrows of ridicule as
would 1 ive caused common men to die a
thousaiid deaths. But now they show a
superior power. They wear a front of brass,
from which leaden bullets glance as lightly
as they do from the hides of so many alliga?
tors. This is a most encouraging circum?
stance to many of us, who feared that our
dear city fathers were in danger of commit?
ting suicide, or of butchering each other in
the Council Chamber. But now wc know
that our fears are Idle. These civic sol?

WE print to-day a highly important letter
from Mr. John W. R. Pope, upon the sub?
ject of the cotton worm and its effects upon
the sea island cotton crop. Our correspon?
dent, who supports his arguments by an im?
posing array of figures, comes to the con?
clusion that much of the damage usually at?
tributed to the worm is really due to un?
favorable seasons, that the time lo3t by a
late spring is not made up by n late fall, that
carly fruiting is thc great desideratum of the
plauter, and thal with normal seasons
good crop can be made, in spile of the
worm, if the staple can be sold for ?iriecs
commensurate with the magnitude of the
crop. This cannot be done, and our cor?
respondent ls clearly of opinion that the sea
island planters must go into a staple which? |
they can sell at fair prices, and make at a
low co3t. In these views we fully concur,
but we desire our readers to look and judge
OUR Washington correspondent says that
President Grant will advise Congress not to
reduce taxation for another year. Tb is
may suit Mr. Grant who pays no taxes of
consequence, but it will not be welcomed by
the people who are taxed from their bead
to their heels, from the cradle to the grave.
We caro very little about reducing the pub?
lic debt-posterity may take care of that.
What the people want, and will have, is an
immediate decrease of taxation. Mr. Bout
well has millions enough to speculate with
for the good of the government; let some?
thing be done for the good of the people !
TQERE is a great to-do -because '-His Ex?
