A ?ooTHKBH RAILROAD TO THE PAOIFIO.
We shall be disappointed if the Paoifio
Skates and .the States this side of the
Rooky Mountains shall not unite soon
in en ch a demand for a Southern rail?
road from the Mississippi River to Cali?
fornia es will make itself heard. The
experience of this winter must have con?
vinced the peoplo of both these grand
divisions of the country that the present
road is not snob a one os wo need. It
has been blooked up by snow for weeks
at a time. Important letters, orders for
money, orders for goods, passeugers
from the Eastern continent, Govern?
ment officials, and We know not who and
what else, have been snowed in among
tho barren hilts and valleys thut make
up tho immense territory lyiDg between
Omaha and the Western boundary of
California. The loss to the business
men of the Northern States, particu?
larly thoBo of New York, Chicago aud
St. Louis, muat have been immenso.
We have felt some pride in the Panino
Railroad as a magnificent evidence of
the enterprising spirit of our peoplo.
It is unquestionably a grand work. Rut
we have not been insensible to the fuot
that it was built upon the luast-favorod
line of the three or four which had beon
surveyed, or wore known to Congress,
when its construct iou was ordered. From
all nooouuts, the route from Miutiosota
to Puget's Sound is less liable to ob?
struction by snow. Congress seems to
have chosen a route that cannot bo ri?
valed for disndvautuges. Lot this be us
it may, there is no doubt that the route
through Texas is one upon which the
first road should have boen constructed.
Itu trains will not bo stopped u Bingle
day in the year by suowi Its grudcu
will bo HO good that tho cost of its con?
struction will bo muon less than was
that of thu road already finished. It
will also pass overa more fertile country.
There is a Hcborau now on foot for
building a railroad direct from New
York, by tho shortest possible route, to
Western Texas. There it will intersect
the road to tho Pacifie that ia destined
soon to be constructed, aud which will
be patronized by all travelers in tho
winter season. Tho Chesapeake and
Ohio Rood will bo on exactly thu right
lino also to catch homo of tho trade, und
travel from tho new truns-coutinental
road. Tho next Congress will be iu tho
bauds of the South uud the West, aud
will provide for tho building of this new
road. It is a disgrace to Congress thut
it should have allowed its prejudices
against thc Southern peoplo to iuliueuou
it to pass by thu bout route und build a
road over tho worst. Rut nature is
stronger thau Congress. She lins hud
her revengo this winter. The rigors of
a Siberian climate have dumuged the re?
putation of tho present road lo such un
extent as that it would take m tiny snow
less winters to restore public confidence
in it. When wu ruad of u traiu delayed
tweuty-eight days, or even for ten days,
by drifting suow, wo understand that
that region must be a land of desolation
in the wiuter season. Tho Texas route
will be free from all objections growing
out of a severo climate. Tho sooner u
! new road is built the bettor for thc coun?
try.- Hie South, New York.
ARRESTS.-Ou Thursday night last,fat
tho burning of the stable of Mr. Jen?
nings, two men, Frederick Allen, white,
and Charles Gm, oulored, were arrested
on suspicion of being engaged as princi?
pals or accessories in our rscent fires,
und have been committed to jail. No
official examination hus yet been made,
but there uro ample reasons for the be?
lief that on? or both are guilty, and such
is the established assn ranee of the officers
having them in custody. When they
were firat taken iu charge by Sheriff
Southern, so strong aro tho circum?
stances indicating their complicity, that
tho crowd could scarcely bo restrained
from lynching them.
Our people have boen alarmed ai the
frequency of fires that .havo occurred of
late, which has given a deep fooling of
uneasiness to tho eutiro city. Tho re?
flection that pervades one's mind, upou
retiring at night, that before daylight
comes ho may be aroused only to esoupo
with his lifo from the dangers of fire, or
that the next morning's sun may shine
on the ruins of tho roof that afforded
his family shelter from thu wiud and
rains, or that his store, shop or office
may as suddenly disappear, is anything
but one tending to composure and quiet.
Such is a fair description of the disquiet
and restlessness under which we are now
living, as no one knows whore the incen?
diary's torch will next be applied lo
send up lurid flames.

DISTRESSING OCCURRENCE.-On Satur?
day last, 9th instant, an occurrence
transpired in our city which carried
thrilling bereavement to the heans of
two aged paronts, besides a largo circle
of acquaintances. Mr. Duncan Brooks,
soo of Capt. J. W. Brooks, having pro?
cured a vial of laudanum, drank of it in
sufficient quantity to produce death,
which took place about 12 o'olock the
same night. It is the confirmed opinion
of those knowing him best and most in?
timately, that at the time the deed was
committed, he was laboring under u se?
vere attack of aberration, produced by
long continued and excessive uso of
ardent spirits. As soon as the fatul act
became known, Dr. S. S. Marshall was
summoned, who made every effort to
save his life, bnt with no avail. Tho
deceased was about twenty-four years
old. His venorsble father, near eighty
five years of age, and his estimable
mother, oepecially, have the s i noa re con?
dolence of every one, in this sore nflLc

about his neck, and then slowly kicked
away his chair. From the crown of his

"general mixing up of tba fluids of the
body." This was succeeded by a flash?
ing, dancing light before his eyes, and
then concentrated at a single focus, and
thence rippled into space in concentric
circles. His head seemed compressed in
au iron ring; needles without number
seemed to dart from the cuds of his
