what, she Is to-day a prmid city of four
hundred thousand inhabitants, with her
commerce extending to every psr of the
habitable globe, while, we know, before said
mad was constructed said city contained
ls than one hundred thousnnd penplr,
with comparatively little cotnmcrco. What
has made the town an prosperous of lae
years f We answer th B , It i more and Oiiio
railroad. The wealth of the country through
wblcb our Bristol and Knojtville roads are
to pass ts untold, and c.iiuiot truthlully lie
porirsyed, as the greater pirt of It still lW-s
undiscnvered, and hnried in the bowels ,t
onr mother earth. Iron, cnnl, lead and
timber of almost every kind abound in East
Tennessee and Southwestern Virginia.
Those part of the States are great corn,
wheat, bay and cotton prnvflng countries.
In fact the country abounds In wealth and
overflows with milk and honey.
By running ryer the map and studying
the distances, yon will at onco perceive
that, II we pni feet our Bristol and Knox
vllle branches through Cumberland G ip, we
save over three hundred miles of tr ivel to
Norfolk, and bring the city within 714 miles
of Louisville, which, at the slo rate of
twenty miles per hour, would make tis with
Inthirty-six hours of that grand old city,
which Is stated by a gentleman well n rwil
in Its advantages to be ' the great central
seaport of the Atlantic; niidmay between
the Canadss and the Wi s' Indies; on the
finest, most convenient, silo and rapacious
harbor on (lie continent ; open at all periods
of the year ; "accessible Irom any p iltit,
with any wind, and better calculated for a
in pliiy tr.vle than any linrhorin the world.
Now, of that railmad connection we have
only from Mount Vernon I the State line,
via Cnmberlnnd Gap, to complete, and our
portion of tho contract will be fnlllHed.
M"st of that gap, from Crab Orchard to
L Bdon, which is a frsction over forty-three

show a more favorable line in every respect
than that between Crab Orchard and Lnn

and1 from Louisville 202 miles. We can,

distance tiom New York to Nashville, anil
should the Lebanon branch he rxii nl' d In
Bristol instead nt to ICnoxville, the d-slauce
would he reduced 84 miles. Trn-se facia
wolld indicale that we could establish a
great freight line between I.olli.vdle and
New Ynra via Norfolk, and transport goods
tietwceo these two cities lit lower lates
than they rouUl be brought from New York
tn Cincinnati. From the prueut crowded
condition of the four trunk lines com e- tmg
tne East with the Northwest, and miistdor
ing the rspldly increasing development ol
the resources of tho Northwest, we may
reasonably concludn that tho four great
trunk lilies will soon be able tn carry ail the
freight. Have wo not shown from tie
above nutations, tuken from men skilled in
railroads, and who hsvu -tade the interests
of railroad lift-long study, that these
g-e it eon'rmplsted lines and rhains of rail
mads will be of incalculable advaiilag-to
Louisville, and do more to build up hur
wealth ami prosperity ths airytbirg that
hsi yet been done or contemplated. We
aliunsl saiit that absolute neceselty, the
lUuther of Invention, demanded these con.
ueclions. They must and they will be
in tte. Our inottn and our hope are in s
them an acconiplislied act fight spe dily.

EXAMINATION OF GRANT.'
Ihe Asmssin before the Mayor.

We clip the following from the RichmonJ.
Judga Ould asked the Mayor if he In
tended to admit the prisoner to bail..
Thu Mayor I am ready to hear a motion
Judge Qjild We do not desire to make
a tnoiion ior bail, but leave It entirely to
your Honor's judgment tu do what yon
deem proper In the matter.
The Mayor thereupon admit'od the ac
cused to bail in the sum of $111,0110, Mr.
Wm. K. Watts becoming bis surety in that
lie left tho court-room with his counsel,
entered a carriage, and was drlveu to his
father's residence ou Clay street, between
Tetitli and Kleveutb.
After the case had been disposed of and
the parties had left the court, Mr. E. A.
Pollard made his Bppearance, and stated
to the Mayor that he had been taken wholly
by surprise by what had occurred ; that It,
had been his intention to bo represented
by counsel in the investigation of the r ise,
but ascertaining that the gentleman whoso
services be desired to secure was absent
from the city, and being informed that the
proceedings in ibis court would be merely
pro Jiirtnt, and uot supposing that the
( Host ion ol bail would lie raised, be had
ailed to obtain the advice and assistance

sines his arrivall in the city certain facts
had come to his knowledge which bad an
important bearing upon the case and which
bo deemed essential to havo considered be

remotely connected them ; and this course
on the part ot the public ana press Had
completely soured him, and be had deter
mined to spare none In tho future who
should la' themselves liable lo pnhlio cen

however," said he, " that I will publish any
explanation he rr.ny choose to make, wilh.
out a single alteration, no matter what he
may say ;. but I have fairly examined (be
facts in the case, find they warrant the pub.

The more 1 see of the world thu more I
am convinced lhat sinipliciiy is uot more
the inevitable accoinpniiiiii-ut of true
genius than It is of true greatness. I never
yet knew a truly great genius w ho did not
possess a certain playful, almost childish,
simplicity of character. Truo greatness,
never stmts on stilts, or Uys the king upon
the Btsgo. Conscious of lis elevation above,
ttarcsiof mankind, siul knowing iu what
lhat elevation coosists, it ia happy tn take
its part in the cotnmoo amusements and
