Another Continental Line--Been
ning of the Southern Pacific bail
Generals Rosecrans and Sedg
wick were advertised in San Fran
cisco to leave that city on the 12th
instant for San Diego, the sea
port at the southern extremity of
the State of California, there to
inaugurate the work on the San
Diego and Gila Railroad, and Mr.
Seward was also to be present to
assist in the ceremonies of break
ing ground. Funds sufficient to
build the road to the Gila river
have been subscribed. This is
the beginning of the Southern
continental railway line. A com
pany, headed by General Fre
mont, has been organized East,
to begin at Memphis, Tenn., and
thence to build a road southwest
wardly, through Arkansas and
Texas, to El Paso on the Rio
Grande, thence across the table
lands to the Gila river, and down
its valley, or near it, to a junction
with this San Diego branch.
From the Mississippi river this
is a much shorter route to the
Pacific Ocean than that of 'the
Union Pacific road; and as it
flanks the Rocky Mountains and
the Sierra Nevada chain it may
be built all the way over the
Plains. It is also below the re
gion of interrupting snows,, and
the work of building it and of
running it when completed may
be continued without the stop
page of a day from wintry storms.
With anything like the enterprise
which built the Union Pacific this
Southern road ought to be finish
ed within two years, for there will
be comparatively little to do in
building it, beyond marking out
the line and laying'down the ties
and rails. When finished it will
be the main line for through trav
el; but there will be work enough,
not only for two continental
roads, which will then be in ope
ration, but for one or two more.
In the building up of a half a
dozen new States the Union Pa
cific will soon be an immensely
profitable line, and so with the
Southern Pacific in tapping the
undeveloped resources of Western
Texas and of New Mexico, and
Arizonia, and of the northern
States of the Mexican republic,
and the vine and olive lands of
Southern California, the most
productive in the world.
In this connection it will be
seen that General Rosecrans is in
better business thah he would be
in running as the Democratic
candidate for Governor of Ohio.
General Fremont, we believe, is
now in Europe raising money for '
the main line from Memphis
westward. He only asks the
right of way and certain Territo
rial lands along the line from
Congress; for with these and the
liberal grants offered by Texas he
calculates upon building the road
without further assistance of gov
ernment bonds. We think, too,
that on this basis the road ought
to be pushed through with out
difficulty, considering the advan-.
tages of the route, the lightness
of the work and profits sure to
follow.-New York Herald.
Mr. Bigelow succeeded the late
Henry J. Raymond as editor-in
chief of the New York Times.
Some of the newspapers outside
of that city have taken the liberty
of criticising Mr. Bigelow's man
agement. They think he has not
kept the Times up to its old stan
dard. "Minor Topics"-a column
or so of short articles-was an
attractive feature of the paper
under the old reginme. 'This Mr.
Bigelow discontinued at the start.
It was said that Mr. E. H. House
would cease to be the dramatic
critic of the Times at the end of
last week, and that the dramatic
and musical department was to
be dropped from the paper,
RE-ASSESSMENT OF INCOMES.

THE WIDOW OF GEN. IAWLINS
-A TOUCHING ROMANCE.-There
will be a general feeling of sym
pathy in the South for this afftlict
ed lady. During the war she
resided at Vicksburg, Miss., as a
friend in the family of Mr. Lum,
a prominent citizen of that place.
Her maiden name was Hurlburt,
if we remember correctly. She
.was greatly admired and respect
ed by all of the Confederate offi
cers who were visitors of the
house. Pleasant and winning in
manner, the charms of her socie
ty and her manifold courtesies
and kindness to all of them will
be remexibered by those who
were among the many who were
cheered by her kindness and ele
gant hospitality. Among the
throng of her admirers was a
brave young officer belonging to
Withers' batalion of artilery, C.
S. A., who awakened a deeper
feeling than friendship in her who
was doomed to hear of his death
out on the lines shortly afterward,
during the last memorable siege.
When Gen. Grant, with the late
Gen.. Rawlins as chief of staff, en
tered Vicksburg, Mr. Lum's house
was occupied. Here it was she
met her late husband, who touch
ed by her great worth and charm
ing qualities, subsequently offered
himself and was accepted. All
the Southern officers who were at
Vicksburg will bear testimony to
the undeviating courtesy of Gen.
Rawlins in his intercourse with
them, and his afflicted widow will
now have their heartiest sympa
thy in her great bereavement.
THE Holly Springs Reporter
"Moses Hopkins, negro, who
was appointed route agent on the
Central Road, to run between
Jackson, Tenn., and Canton, Miss.,
resigned his position last week.
Hie discovered that he was totally
incompetent' We have heard of
many funny things which he did
during his short career. At Hol
ly Springs, on his first trip, he
threw off several bushels of mail
matter that belonged elsewhere.
He distributed matter indiscrim
inately from Jackson down as
long as it lasted. At a depot be
low Holly Springs, the postmaster
asked him for the mail. Moses
replied that he hadn't started
with as much. as he thought he
had, and had given it all out at
the depots above; but he would
leave a good sized bag full for
him the next time. Moses, good
bye; you are better at picking out
cotton than you are in picking
out letters and papers."
THE SOUTH AND COTTON.-A
friend of the editor of the Mem
phis Appeal, writing from the
Rhine, says :

South and that tends to an in
creased production of her great

tance on this side, and I. speak

BEN BUTLER VS. MRS. STOWE.
-A case of scan. mag or crim.
con. is to Ben. Butler a delIcious
tit-bit, a savory morsel. His ex
perience and practice at the bar
have so sharpened and whetted
his legal appetite for this sort of
mental pabulum, that he has not
been able to withhold his opinion
in the Byron calumny, and has
rushed into print in four columns
of a Boston paper, in which he
cross-examines Mrs. Stowe and
riddles her story with his rules
of evidence so completely as not
to leave that elderly female any
thing to stand upon. He care
fully and ably reviews the char
acter of Byron and all the incidents
of his life, and proves conclusively
the falseness and improbability
of her ingenious canard. It has
been the habit of Daniel to come
to judgment, but now comes Ben
jamin, and, wonder of wonders,
in the cause of truth 'and morali
ty! The report that Butler was
seen at a camp-meeting lately,
must be true, for his action in this
matter is proof positive that he
has experienced a change of heart.
After all, it can now be said with
some show of probability, that
"the devil is not as black as.he is
painted," for here is Butler in his
great, daring act (never before
attempted in America) of the
Moral Reformer and the friend of
CLEBURNE'S SWORD.-The At
lanta Constitution has recently
seen the sword which was pre
sented to Gen. Cleburne by his
old Arkansas regiment, and which
he wore at the time of his death
at Franklin. It is in the custody
of Miss Gay, of Decatur, Ga., the
lady who has done so much for
the graves of the Confederate
(lead in her own State and in
Tennessee. The sword is thus
described by the Constitution :
"It is a very handsome weapon, I
with a finely-tempered, flashing i
blade, in a handsomely embossed i
and carved scabbard, and strange- I
ly enough it bears, as the name k
and place of its makers, H. Mar- 1
shall & Co., of Atlanta, Ga. The ]
scabbard has at the top, on one c
side, a carved medallion of Mr. (
Davis in profile, and on the other '
side the harp and shamrock of i
Ireland twined together. On the u
first ring below the shamrock, t
midway down the scabbard, are c
'Maj. Gen. P. U. Cleburne,
Presented by his old Regiment, c
15th Arkansas.' t
"Below is a carved Major Gen-I
eral's insignia-a wreath with 8

largest, and underneath the let

THE RIGHT VIEW OF IT.-The <
Richmond Whig takes General O.
0. Howard to task for saying, in
a recent speech, that slavery had
dwarfed the intellect of the Afri- t
can race, and we think our con-I
temporary has most decidedly got I
the better of the Christian soldier i
on that point when it says:
"This implies that the intellect I
of the negroes has been dwarfed
since their arrival in this country.
This is something new to us. The
common impression has been t
that on their advent here they t
were unmitigated barbarians,
many of them cannibals, all of
them a very low and unintellect
ual type of humanity. All the
humane ideas and civilized hab
its they now possess were acquir
ed here while in a state of slavery,
and from their white masters.

California papers are received,
with full accounts of the recent
election in that State. The San
Francisco Herald says it was a
positivetidal wave, sweeping over
the whole coast, and leaving the
Radical party stranded and shat
tered, so that they can never
again enter into the sea of poli
tics in California. What is one
of the most observable features in
the result is that the Radical par
ty is broken into small fragnents.
In the city of San Francisco it
did not emerge once from ta
shell,. or show its head. One
wing voted the Democratic ticket,
of the other wing vast numbeis
staid away from the polls. The
party cannot in many years re
cover such discipline as, will make
it effective, without some great
over-powering blunder on the
part of its adversaries. It has
fought its last battle in California
for many a year to come; nor will
it even regain a sure foothold un
til it shall have changed its name
and its principles. The Radical
Sacramento Union aekno*ledges
" very general Democratic vic
tory," and the San Francisco
Morning Call (Independent) calls
it "unprecedentedand overwhelm
ing." The State, it says, will
now be redistricted for members
of Congress. The Sacramento
Herald is frank enough to ac
knowledge the overthrow of its
Mrs. Elizabeth Cady Stanton,
the editor of the Revolution,
speaks of Susan B. Anthony, the
publisher of that incendiary sheet,
as "the Napoleon of the women's
suffrage movement in this coun
try." Of such women as these
the New York Star says: "Pro
fessional gabbists, peripatetic
scolds, whose own homes are up
side down, whose husbands are
either driven to desperation" or
led sneakingly by the snuffing
nose,-these are the so-called 'Wo
men of America,' the agitators,
the women lowerers, the women
slanders, the women stabbers of
New York, in the year of our
Lord, 1869. The real workers
among women have cause to thank
God every day of their lives that
women are not in place and do
not hold power; not that women
ire not competent, but because
the best women are elsewhere oc
oupied, and the worst women are
Ievils in temper serpents in dis
guise, mean, cowardly, base and
cruel." Severe, but not wholly
anjust. The mischief these stron
nihded women are doing their
sex, all for the sake of money and
notoriety, is incalculable.
The World does not like Carpet
Baggers, and gives them this dig:
Where the prey is, there are

need for such sessions, but merely
to get the big mileage and per

public funds. Some little in the
shape of taxes has come into the
