RATLROAD STOCKS.-Tho groat riso
in railroad stocks i< one o; tho con?
sequences of tho present and pros?
pective glut <>1 paper money in the
commercial centres. The banks con?
tribute Itugely to the stock inflation
by lending money to speculators.
With an enormous amount of depo?
sits on bund, they must make some
use ot' them, and they are not wanted
for any regular business.
The price of railroad stocks will, it
is supposed, be run up to the extra?
vagant rates of 18C4 There is every
reason to believe that they will. Thc
speculation, i'.>r some time confined
to bankers and cliques, has now been
enhanced by thc commercial public,
rt now rages asan epidemic, and will
continue to do KO until the managers
of the machinery can see a prolit in
letting down tin- stocks to their natu?

As to the railroads, they are, no
doubt, of immense value to tho coun?
try and to the companies owning
them. They are. no doubt, to be
very profitable, whenever they arc
well conducted. Tin y can stand a
great deal OL" mismanagement, and
even fraud and depredation, lt is to

The receipts of railroads in Eng?
land for thc last year were ?40,000,
000 sterling, of which, it is said, that
one-half we *e profit.
Tin' railroads, in a large portion of
our Northern and Western States,
have been generally profitable to their
shareholders. But the advantage
derived from them by their ownersas
bidders of stock is small, in compari?
son with the vast beuefit which they
afford to all thc industrial interests
of the country.

Tm: KNIGHTS or ARABIA TO TAKE
COBA.-The Herald's Mobile corres?
pondent claims to have ascertained
the obied of the secret order of the
Knights of Arabia, of which Captain
!'?raine, capturer of the Chesapeake,
is thc alleged grand commander, fie
..! am assured, however, by a high j
officer of the K. A.'s, that they cou-,
template the conquest of some coun?
try which needs to lie Christianized
?nd civilized, and that they proposed '
doing it in such a manner as not to
embroil the United States in interna
(ional difficulty. They declare em- j
piratically that the grand object has i
nothing to do with Mexico; that it is '
entirely distinct from our national
politics and thc rebellion, and num?
bers in its encampments many ox
S'orlhern soldiers and Union men. I
presume it will not bc difficult for
your readers to place the destination
of tho expedition, ('nba is unques?
tionably the spot; but as Braiue is
nuder arrest and thc organization is
not prospering, the Captain-General
need not be in a hurry about, packing
J us trunks and valises for a Hank
movement from the island."
GEXERAIJ Hoon.-The Henderson,
Texas, Tunes, in commenting upon a
speech recently delivered in that place
hy General Hood, says:
Uti counseled obedience, to the laws
< d' the country, and a strict compliance
with all the terms imposed in the
condition of surrender. After this
is done, he said, preserve your man?
hood-do all that is right--do noth?
ing that is not right. This is all that
the victors can require-it is all that
those who contributed most to over?
throw us will require.
General Hood closed by exhorting
the people to forget the differences
and to cease the pining over what
could not be helped--to go to work
and restore the country to its former
prosperity, to do their duty in all
things, and h ave the consequences
in the hands of Him AYIIO cannot err.

A CH?A?1 WEATHER GCIDE.-The
Turf and Field says two drachms of
camphor, half drachm of pure salt?
petre, half drachm of mu .date of
ammonia and two ounces of proof
spirits, in a glass tube or narrow vial,
will make a very good weather guide,
[n dry weather the solution will ro?

change, minute stars will rise, np in
