Rppl iti;Jiirtlier to Mr. B.'s charge of Freesoil
prodivitios ag.iii.st the Union, he says :
'The editor of the Washington Union can
freelv fo-ive such gentlemen as Judge Broiison
for writing fixvoil letters to freesoil meetings in
1S4S, upon the evidence of subsequent reformation;
but lie has no occasion himself to ask for such for
jviveiiew, as he never held any such connexion with
ireesoii l'noveineiits. He respectfully submits to the
Judue that Mr.llroiison is in no very good position
to charge frees il assiK-iation upon the Washington
Union. We wwrirest to linn, also, mat it is not en
tirely inirenlons'm him to call that a ' free soil' tick
et which was nominited by a convention of whom
a majority was sustaining Gen. Cass against Van
Burcn in 151& when Judge llronson was writing
frce'oil sentiments to in eiings ratifying Mr. Van
Buren's nomination. Wo further submit to him
tint it is not entirely fair in him to call that a 'free
soil ticket' on which there arc; seven out of ten
names who supported Cass in 1H4S, and who have
ever since stood upon national grounds, and who
have to ask no forgiveness for such letters as Mr.
jJrouson wrote to the Buffalo platform men in 1S4S.
We cannot resist the temptation to add that it does
not conform strictly to the facts of the case to call
that a 'freesoil ticket' which was nominated by a
convention that allcpt d the Baltimore platform,
and which is cumpo-ed of men who are standing
on that platform. We hwst that the same grace
which has been freely extended to Mr. Bronson,
and which relieves him from the taint of freesoilism
in by-gone days, shall be extended to those other
Democrats who now abandon their errors and come
honestly upon the platlorm on which Mr. Bronson
placed himself only a short time before them."
THE AKCTIC 'EXPEDITION THE XOKTHWEST
t ASS AGE ACCOMPLISHED.
It was briefly slated in the telegraphic forergn
intellitrence that Commander Ingletield had arrived
in England, from his Arctic search for Sir John
Frauklm, and had been unsuccessful but he brings
the interesting intelligence that Uie problem of the
Nonhwestassnge has been solved at last, and that
a ship has actually sailed round the American con
tinent through the Arctic ocean. Commander M'
CJure carries olfthe honor of tins remarkable ex
ploit. It will be iccollected that Commander ln
rieBeld was despatched in 11. M-'s oteamship Phoe
nix, in the spring or the year, with supplies to Sir
Edward Belcher's squadron. He has succeeded in
depositing Uie supplies as directed, and is accom
panied by Lieut. Uraswell, of Uie Investigator, with
despatches from Commander McClure, who sailed
in December, 1849, in search of Sir John Franklin,
in H. M. S. Investigator, and from Capt. Kellett,
who sidled in the spring- of in 11, M. S. Reso
lute, on, the samemiss on.
Ko traces of Sir John Franklin have been dis
covered, but Commander McClure, in a letter dated
the Bay of Morcy, Baring s Island, April, 1853, an
nounces Ids success in accomplishing that which
has so ron' been a mysterious problem, namely :
the North "Western Passage. He is coming home
bv Baffin's Bay. Names have been discovered
farther North than ever were seen before, at Wool
laston Sound, at Victoria Land, and Prince Al
bert's Land. Copper, of the purest description,
was found in lumps tnu natives, who wmu
very friendly, were much amused at seeing the sail
ors run to pick up the lumps of metal with wkieh
they edge their spears. Commander McGnre's
vessels have wintered in the pack in ISoO, and the
succeeding yews, wiUiout receiving any injury.
The disvatchcs will no doubt be published.
The gallant writer Mates ihat during the winter
of 1850, his ve?el wintered in pack, without sus
taining any dnmaee, (and surprising to say, he has
to rejiort the fame result at the -nd of the third
winter, and without the loss of a single man of lier
crew,) in the frozen waters called Prince of Wales'
Strait, and communicating with Barrow's, as lie as
certained on the UtJth October of that year.
In July, lSol. he states, 'tliat such a body of ice
came down upon m iih such a strong cast wind,
and set the vessel so far to the south, that we deter
mined to attempt a passage by the east end of Uie
elites of Bank's Land, forming the north entrance of
the large island under which we now are." The
difficulties and dangers of this passage may be esti
mated fiom his -tatenient that the ice Hoes encoun
tered measured from 4o to 70 feet beneath Uie
water, only G or 7 above.
An elopement took place in Gibson county, Ind.,
a few weeks since. Euclid Wills ran away "with

children behind her, probably to console her hus-

At a meeting of the Directors, held hero this day,
tiie following gentlemen were present, viz: X. K.

Kkowles, Neil, Cleveland, Si'ehce, Ewitta, Pow

The Board having organized, the President pre
sented and read the following report:
To the Directors of the A d; C. Ii. R. Company;
Thefollowing tables and statements are made in
answer to your resolution of the 12Ui inst:
The first item exhibits the probable cost of the
Road, when finished, as follows:
1st Cash already paid for Graduapn, Masonry,
Bridges, Track-laying, Timber, Iron,"Engineering,
and all expenses properly chargeable to that de
partment, and construction of road, $2,523,705 32

Making the whole cost
of the road including
interest to Stockhold-
rs, damages and out-
lit, amount to 3,713,93S,59
The L'radin" of the road is all done and the track
all laid, but lour or five miles next to uie Bridge:
timber for the residue of the track is procured and
on the road, and the Tennessee River Bridge nearly
ready for the trains to pass, and with tins the road
will be complete. Therefore the cost cannot vary
much from the above estimates, unless our work in
the Raccoon Mountains shall fail to protect the road
against I he slides, which I hope and believe will not
be the cafe.
The twenty-six hundred and forty thousand sev
en hundred ami six dollars ami thirty-two cents, ui
the first table is made up of the following items :
and Bridging 1,413,557,38
And supposed Cost of
finishing all 75,000,001,493,557 38
Railroad Iron, Chain?,
and Spikes 710,789,20

Total, 2,040,700 32
I will give the same irn3 in the original estimate
of Mr. Thompson, under which the stock was taken,
and see how they compare with each other, but
will explain that a part of th 75,000 dollars added
to Graduation, Masonry and Bridging above, should
be charged to laying superstructure.
Mr. Thompson in his report to the Commission
ers in February. 1817, say?: ''The following con
densed statement wilt exhibit the cost of the road
upon 1lie prefored t onto." I have not thought it
nccewary to trouble you with the details of the es
Graduation, Bridging ami Masonry, 1.440,000 00

and Chairs, 1,010,000 00

Engineering and contingencies,
Making these items cost, 2,810,000 00
This shows that our road proper has cost one
hundred and sixty-nine thousand, two hundred,
and ninety-three, 08-100 dollars less than Uieamount
estimated by Mr. Thompson, upon which the stock
was tiken, 109,293 08
When these statements are
dissected it will be seen
that the galuation,mason-
ry, and bridging has cost
more Uian estimated by
Mr. Thompson, 90,557 38
Laying track, 44,529 74
Timber, 50,101 14
Total, 191,188 20
Most or this am, however, be accounted for in
the cost of Uie Shelby ville. Branch, wVicli i'as not
in Mr. Thompson's estimate, and which amounts to
It will be seen by thc alwvp comparative state
ments that the saving has beeu in the cost of Iron
rails and Spikes, 305,210 74
And in Engineering and Contingen
cies, r,5,271 20
Total, 300,481 94
Deduct the ovcrco't as above of 191.18S 20
Ami it shows a saving of One Hundred and Sixty
Nine Thousand, Two Hundred and Ninty-Three
Dollars and Sixty-Eight Cents, ($109,293 03,) upon
Mr. Thompson's estimate, notwithstanding the
heavier Iron and additional Tron 1'or the branch, of
wntcn additional iron there was, in all, about 2,000
tons beyond Mr. T.'s estimate. Thus -we have not
embraced in Thompson's estimate Uie wlwleof the
branch road costing $100,000 fully, and we have
laid 120 miles of our road on 7-7 Sawn Cellar Slriug
Timbers, in place of common flattened l.iud rilta, as
contemplated by him.
The saving is partly in the Iron, which was made
by taking advantage of its Unv price an nl making
cash arrangements, that enabled Uie D.'rectow to
I buv in advanee of t'ie means of the Company, and
partly in economy in mo iMigineenug atiu oiuce
and other expense.
I will uow iiroceed to compare the present cost
I with the estimate made jn.Uie last'Annual Rop'jrt

All which shows that the work hiis actually cost,

When these estimates were made! up, they were
based on the expcctaUon that "wc would have
usual weather in which to finish the work, and that
there would be no slides in Uie mountains beyond
thctRiver where the road had' generally been
graded; but the rains soon set in and continued
until.the April following, to such an extent that
the balance of .trade this side of Uie Tennessee
river, and the grading there had to be done,inmch
of itin water from one to two feet deep. This
was the case particularly in thn wide bottoms of the
Tennessee River, where Uie embankments-had to
be made from distant knolls by laying brush and
covering it with earth to make causeways.
The track, .had to he laid while the water was
from one to five feet deep round the embankment,
upon which it was being laid. This made Uie bal
ance of tract and grading necessary to; finish
the road to the Tennessee River cost fully three
times as much as any reasonable man would liave
estimated it at -,
The same rains that flooded the valley below so
"satuated the Raccoon Mountains as to fill most of
the cuts again and again with what are called land
slides; Uiese had again and again to bo taken out,
so that we had fears Uiat the road could.not be fin
ished this year, ir the track was all laid continuously
from Chattanooga to the River towards Nashville.
We determined, Uierefore, to put on a force and lay
at any cost from the west side of tfie Mountain to
meet at the summit, and this was in fact done, at
a heavy additional expense, in getting Iron down on
boats, hauling it up to the road, hauling and deliver
ing timber, Sec The advance in wages induced by
the number of public works, stirdng in all direc
tions also occasioned large and additional expense;
they had risen from one. dollar a day at last Report,
to one dollar and twenty-five cents, when our
grading was done. To ensure the completion of the
road, as soon as possible, work was carried on at all
points that were in danger of getting behind day
It may well be asked if the road proper costs
only $203,944 40 cents, more than Mr. Grants es
timate, why the demand for $G50,000 of additional
This is easily accounted for, first: Experience
has shown that Mr. Thompson's estimate for ma
chinery and station houses, &&, would "not furnish
enough, and our contracts Tor these objects amount
with what is delivered to
When the estimate was
Total, 210,000 00
Here is two hundred and sixteen
thousand dollars accounted for,
and it is a matter to rejoice at rather !
than complain of, that it takes -more
locomotives and cars than ;
was expected. It evinces that '"
more business is done on the "J
road than was anticipated. Add
the over cost . 203,000 00
And it makes this sum for these
two items 419,000 00
From the delay in finishing the road
from the above causes we have failed to
make profits to the amount specified in
Uie estimate of 1S52, which should be
deducted from the $2,437.1G1 92 Jay 00,000 00
From the same cause we have been
compelled to pay interest on Bonds not
earned by the Road, and for repairs on
the part of the Road already graded, not
provided for by earnings and for repairs,
especially on the Shelbvville Arm, an
amount probably of " 103,000 00
Total, 532,000 00
To any one acquainted with the repairs
neces-iary on a new Road, widening
ditches, repairingembankments, widen
ing cuts, A'a, &c, such expenses as the
above will need no explanation.
The Interest account has added four hundred
and thirty thousand five hundred and seventy-eight
dollars to the cost of the road, and lias besides con
sumed all the interest that accrued on delinquent
stock before collection and after calls were due,
amounting to near or quite seventy-five thousand
dollars. This $75,000 would have covered all the
I033 that will probably be sustained in collecting in
dividual stock, which is now a clear loss to Uie com
pany, and not made up in any waj' but by adding to
the capital stock to make it good.
There is this seventy-five thousand dol
lars Uikeu up by interest and lost in col
lecting 75,000 00
Add probably loss on bills rec'ble and
balances due, 17,000 00
The above loss on bonds, and paid for
collecting and damage, 105,G77 01
There is the interest account of 430,578 07
and the additional amount expended in
outfit of ' 210,977 19
These sums, amounting to eight hundred and
forty-five thousand dollars, were not taken into ac
count in making up the cost of Uie Road. They
make a large show in swelling the apparent cost of
the road, and have made more means necessary, but
have cost stockholders nothing that is to be regret
ted, as the additional machinery, a
mounting to , 210,977 19
is good for its cost, and useful, and re
quired to make the road profitable. The
interest on every dollar, eversince it was
paid in, goes to the benefit of stock and
The estimated amountof interest on de
linquent stock was taken up by stock
iuterest, as above estimated, and used
fibr the benefit of the road, 75,000 00
Tiiis much of the over cost is good 721,455 2G
The unpaid Stock of insolvent subscribers will
not be issued, and therefore, is not a loss, but makes
it neccssarry to borrow money to take its places,
The loss m the sale of bonds, and cost of collect
ing, and damages, &c, ($122,077 01,) is a total loss,
and has been met by issuing Bonds to take its place.
Most of Uiis loss was in Uie sale of the Nashville
and Murfreesborough Bonds. Thcproceetlsof most
of which went to pay for the iron at Uie low rates,
winch maui: a saving ol over 5.100,000 to the Com
pany, too tins 13 hardly to be regretted, as without
it the saving in iron could not have been realized.
It will here be seen that the original estimate of
Mr. Thompson, under which the stock was taken,
will more than build llieltoau, and that Mr. Grant s
crttinate, made under the circumstances above ex
plained, will be but litttle exceeded, and that the
additional machinery and stock interest, both good,
and amounting to, $047,555 20
has swelled the apparent cost
of the Road, to the sum of
Take the interest and additional
from the above, and vou have left,
or more than sixty thousand dollarsless than Thorn
son's estimate for the rood, and the same outfit and
heavier iron, by over two thousand tons, and the
branch road, houses, and outfit, costing $100,000
The present indebtedness and prospective liabili
ties ot the Company, arc as iouows:
Amount to be paid for machinery,
and station houses under contract
generally, and to finish paying for
road bed and bridges, and to close all
out-standing claims and interest, to
1st January, 1851,
To meet this the Company have the balance ot
of Bonds lately issued, $030,000.. - '
Balance or indiv dual StocR that is good, balance
of bill receivable, 7 sl.tve, balance due, stock, Sec,
out of all of which they expect to
realize, $52,000 05082,000 05
If Uie Bonds have" the State endorsement!- and
;t sell bs high as I think they will, there "will be a sur
plus ol $71,493 05,
This is a fair statement of the case, though
chances are that difficulties, not seen or known
siich as expense of keeping ditches open intRae
coon Mountain, and taking out small slides that
will most probably continue to occur until, the
road is fully settled, ifcc, &c., will take this all up.
If we should fad to get the-State's endorsement
and sell the Bonds at a heaVy loss, it will take a
yeats business to clear up and get an even start,- so
that we may make and declare dividends.
Even the Litter state of the case will show most
favorably with any road heretofore finished.
Many of -our stockholders liave already realized'
an immense rise in their land and lots, and have
had the advantage, on the line of the road, of tiie
large sums of inonej- necessarily spent among them,
and cau now see, at no great distance the prospect
or good dividends.
I might make other remarks and statements,
showing that upon the whole our adventure has
been a prosperous one, but I deem it unnecessary.
All which is respectfully submitted. ,

and we now propose to go a little more into the
particulars of an invention Uiat is destined to work
a complete revolution in the culinary art and to ruin
all the dealers in fuel, excepting those who furnish
coal to degenerate gas.
The principal of heating and cooking by gas has
been known and experimented upon for some time
both in this country and in England, but with only
AVe believe that we have seen a device that ob
viates all objections, overcomes all difficulties, and
that will cause this application of gas to come into
general use. It is the invention of Mr. John Pow
er, an Englishman, of the linn or Messrs Skinner
& Power, or Brooklyn, who are the proprietors or
the patent, and who are so over-run with" curious
aud interested visitors that they have not yet round
time to put up tiieir new heating apparatus in our
office. In a few days we hope to be able to show
our friends, who may favor us with a call, that ouis
is the neplus ultra of stoves occupying but little
space portable, that is to sa-, to the extent of the
India rubber tube that connects it with our gas
pipe emitting light as well as heal more econom
ical than coal neat clean, and serviceable in
short, a perfect wonder and bijou of a stovo that
might be put into a quart pot
The jnodus operandi is perfectly simple. The
gas pipe is tapped at any point, an India rubber tube
is attached by means of an ingenious coupling, com
posed in part of the same material; (for which Mr.
Power has also a patent,) through which the gas is
conducted to a small iron plate not much larger
than onus hand that forms what may be called
the stove. This plate is filled with perforations,
containing sabestos, which concentrates and diffuses
all the heal. The computation made by the inven
tor goes to show that a small office might be heated
for Uie trifling sum of til teen cents a day. Incred
ibly small as this appears, wo confidently believe
that it will cover the whole expense, though we
have not demonstrated this by actual experiment.
Admitting, however, that a much larger amount
wilt come nearer the truth, the advantages or the
invention are obvious. For lawyers' and similar
offices, where it is desirable to avoid the dust, dirt,
and txiuble of a coal fire, to say nothing of the ex
pense of keepingan attendant, it is peculiarly adapt
ed. A man can enter his office in the morning,
turn on the gas, apply a match thereto, and the lire
is instantly stirtcd, and by the time he gets com
fortably settled down to his desk, the room will be
wanned. We shall soon be able to give our testi
mony as to the economy and utility of Uie heating
part of the invention.
Of its complete success in cooking we can speak
with aconfidence founded npon careful observation
and repeated experiineuts. We have eaten meats
cooked by this new process, and can vouch for their
tine flavor; as for the expense, we can speak, witii
mathematical precision, having carefully computed
the cost with Mr. Power and the President of the
Brooklyn Gas Co. To cook 3 lbs. mutton chops
takes just ten minutes of time and cost only !-l o:'a
cent; to boil a kettle containing half a gallon of wa
ter, occupies exactly 12 minutes, aud consumes less'
tlian a cubic foot of gas. To get up a breakfast or
four dishes, sa- one of meats, a second for coffee, a
third for potatoes, fee, and a fourth for eggs, or
whatever else you please, will cost only 3 cents,
and can ail be done within 15 minutes. If any of
our readers are skeptical on this point, they' can
easily satisfy their curiosity by a visit to Skinner fc
Power's Gas Works, Fulton street, Brooklyn.
The gas pipes are tapped, and the connection "
with Uie cooking appar tus made in the same way
that we have described for heating. Fifty dishes
can be cooked at the same time, if desired. A tine
turkey was roasted at the Astor House the other
day by this process, and tiiose princes of caterers,
jlcssis. Uoleuian ez btetcon. pronounced this new
mode of cooking the most complete and success
ful in its results that they liad ever witnessed.
The days of stoves and cooking ranges are num
bered. The use of gas is to form a part of our do
mestic economy, and the kitchen will become an at
Many inventions of somewhat similar character
have been brought before the public, but they have
all been radically defective. This is the first time
that the gas has been so thoroughly decarbonized
that no smoke would gatl er upon the dish. Take
the clearest gas burner in New York, place polished
meta! over the flame, and it will be mstantly black
ened, 'lake the brightest silver and hold it m the
blaze that Mr. Power produces, and it will scarcely
dim the surface.
Mr. P. has apparatus for every ramification or the
kitchen even to heating a flat-iron that is ever
required. An ironing day will soon cease to be
dreaded by housewives. Ho has a smoothing iron
constructed in such a manner that it will be heated
nearly as soon as the gas is turned on; the gas is
conducted into its body in Uie manner we have de
scribed, and cau be graduated at pleasure; the wood
en handle through which the gas passes beft)re ig
nition, is a non-conductor or heat, and the flat cau
be used all day without a holder.
Wc cannot go into the minute description or Uie
various cooking utensils, but will say, in brier, that
the' are all made upon the same priuciple. The
gas or one of our ordinary burners supplies about
fifty jets forming a distributed and attenuated
flame resembling in appearance Uie bluish alcohol
ic flame, and saving every particle of the heat The
cooking is all done by downward radiation; the fire
is brought to the meats, not the meats to the fire.
In roasting, theire keeps basting the meats all the
time, thereby saving the cook all that trouble which
ne is now compelled to take.
The various jets that unite and forma splendid
sheet or flame, the heat of which increases in in
tensity the longer it burns, and which accounts for
the great economy of Uie invention. Every parti
cle of heat generated is used none of it being
lost as in the case now when Uie fire is not cribbed
One of our average gas-burners costs about 35
cents for every 100 feet or ia?, as it burns only
about 4 feet per hour, and as one burner of the or
dinary size will keep the pot boiling, or most any
of the dishes going, the economy will be apparent
to every reader. A company of capitalists liave
taken hold of the matter, and will soon erect a
large factory fiar making the cooking utensils, etc.;
so that Uie public will soon enjoy a participation in
the benefits or this new and valuable invention.
. DISCOVERED IX PART.
On last "Wednesday the hody of an infant was
found in the lake or hole of water known as the
blue sink about a mile below town. It had been
wrapped in some newspapers, and white domestic,
and placed in a match bok wiUi lime and saw dust.
A coroner's jury held an inquest over it. Thepa-

of August the 4 th, 1853. To whom tlusiufant was I
related and by whose agency it was deposited in
Uiis watery g'ave, are secrets. The lime, we learn,
had well nigh destroyed every thing but Uie bones,
and buryiusr anpendaccs. Dark was Uie purpose,

AMENDMENTS TO THE COXSTiTCTIOX.
When tiie proposition to amend the constitution
so as to allow the people or the State to elect their
Judgesand Attorneys General wastibmited to the
voters at the; lite election, all whotdid not vote for
the amendment were counted against it ' This, of
itself, not to mention other cirenm-tances, gave the
opponents of the measure a great, advantage over
those in favor of the people theniselvcs . choosing
their own ruler, j. After all, it is, Ave believe, gen
erally conceded" that the proposition to give to the
people Uieprivilege'of -electing; directly, these of
ficers, was fairly .parried. We rejjret much to see
n disposition w termination manifested by some
of the members composing the pw-cnt Legislature
16" depute llie pebple"oTlliis righf, which tliey uow
claim, by tryfng to-m.-ike itnppear Uiat tiiey have
not ratified Uie proposed amendment according to
the meaning of-tiie constitution. Yet such is the
rcf.' Men in the Legislature, and out or it are
using all tiie skill they' possess to- prevent tiiis pop

mistaken in'otii' opinion, ti'nt we think we are not,
that amanfatally bent on commitfingpolitic.il sui

this to accomplish it. Opposition to popular rights
is aircly not the road to promotion, in this country.
