The king of Sweden is a worthy raon-

to bring back tho locks which time pre
maturely, or .the attrition of his crown or

The Golconda Herald and the Anna
AdteriUer aro brilliant newspapers. They
aro organs of the party that possesses all
of tho intelligence, refinement and ele
gance In these TJnitod States.
The Herald dlscourieth of "American
American aristocracy rest upon about
as firm n foundation as the misty
visions of a dream.
Misty fiction seems to be the editor's
forte. Ue says of tho aristocracy: "It
Ii the boast of a doubt the fabric of a
hope." Tho editor's friends cannot "boast
of a doubt" about his being an cxcellont
modorn Dogberry. According to tho laws
of c6mpensotion the Herald editor ought
to be a very handsome man. Ancient
Dogberry says "to bo a well favored
man is tho gift of fortuno; but to wrlto and
read comes by nature" and Dogberry was
a modol Radical. Tho "fabric of a hono"
woven upon an imaginary loom j the
warp of cob-webs and tho woof of tho
moonbeam's watery rays" would mnko
arsro garment for the parvenu aristocra
cy down in "dixie'' where dark browed
Ethelps and dusky Dldos revel in marble
halls, metamorphosed into a semhlanceof
humanity by tho magic'wand of Radical
ism. I wondur If that "fabric" has an an
chor for n trade mark.
Quoth tho Herald: "The very essenco
of this nation consists of its being a very
cruciblo in which truo worth, trno nobility
and truo gratonesg Is separated from tho
dres3, even though it bo clothed in satin
and broadcloth." A "very cruciblo" inado
of a "very essenco" would be a splendid
alembic in which to distil the editor's ef
fusions, if they should ever be suspected of
containing "a trace" of common sense.
He is a little discouraged
in hi grammar, but right
in the notion that "broad-cloth and satin'
otten hide s groat deal of "dross." lie
Ulka of "grinning skeletons from tho
past" tearing down "flimsy castles" of
pride, Ac, leaving "not one 'brick upon

Our Anna Adcertiter has occasional lu
cid intervals, lately. There is some pow
er behind tho tripod, making eomc im

cal departments." Yot it occasionally ex
hibits a plentiful lack of attention to what
Mr. Curdle calls "tho unities " of plain
English. Mr. Curdle says: "Tho unities,

"While wishing Joel G. Morgan tho suc
cess in his enterprise at Shawneetown, to
which bis talents, energy and fidelity to
Democracy entitle him, we Annaites very
much regret that ho did not choose our
town for his place of labor. A live, well
conducted Democratic paper, devoted to
tho interests of tho county in general
having for its motto : " No pent
up town contracts our powers, tho
whole boundless county nnd vicinity,
including " the unlverso is ours "
would be well supported. Tho fate of tho
Herald which was established under favor
able uuspiccs, but declined nnd went under
1n a few months, is not a fair crl
torian. Tho laziness of its first,
and the weakness ot tho socond editor
would have killed any paper. A fair re
view of tho circumstances connected with
tho origin and management of that paper
would encourage rather than discourage a
correct observer, for it proves that our
people aro vory generous so long as tho
object is worthy. Our citizens donated in
cash $500, and borrowed forthooffico $500,
making n thousand dollars, which sum was
used by the editor and publisher, Mr. Rich,
in putting up tho ofQico. A good sub
scriptipn list was raised, and advertise
ments woro generously furnished. AVhen
the first paper was issued, tho office, all

Mr. Rich had loss than ?400 invested
In tho enterprise. It rarelv hap
pens to an editor to have so good nn op
portunity of making money as was then
offered Mr. Rich. But there is no excel
lence without groat labor, and Mr. R. was
not fond of labor. Half the energy and
industry that u expouded upon the Gazette
would havo made the Herald a complete
success. The paper was ably conducted
and creditable to nil concerned while it
But Mr. Rich was a restless bohelnian,
gonuine nomad, and soon tired o? the
monotonous routine that makes up a vil-
lago editor's life. Ho suddenly sold his
interest in the office (about $100) to "one
of those email creatures whom God in his
inscrutable providence pormlts to edit Re
publican papers," (vidi Greely,) and wo
found that wo had planted a upas Instead
of a fruit tree. After that wo were pleased
to see it decllno and fall. Tho unklndcst
cut or an was to havo our hundreds of
dollars go Into tho pockot of the veriest
Uriah Heep In our town. Of course, the
paper hoisted tho black flag and In tho
genuine spirit of piracy, began a raid and
tirade upon Democratic nrinctoles. Fall
ing of support, our Shylock friend, with
perfect fidelity to "antecedents' carried
off tho wholo concern, press, typo, etc,
to Cairo, where it now diffuses a certain
amount of intelligence through tho mcdi
urn of tho "Sun." Yet thero is nothlnc in
tho history of tho Herald to controvert
the assertion that a well-conducted Demo
cratic newspaper would nay, and wo huve
every reason to beliove that such a paper
will bo started ore long.

tho phosphorescent nnd luminous stylo of
tho Advertiser :

Narrow- Qitnge Railroad.
Prom (he Chicago Tribun, Mar 20
Wo aro asked the question hovr :an a
threo foot gauge railway bo constructed
for $1,009 per mile, when it costs $16,000
per mue to huiid a four root ten inch
guugo track on the bust located routes.
The cost of building and equipping a
is in the p
hat of a w
l Is 27. 'I
ich is tho f
railroad of a narrow gauge is in the pro
portion of its cube ruto to that of a wide
gauga. Tho at or O feet Is 27. The
cube or 4 reet B inches, which Is tho nar
rowext of existing gauges, oquals 101, and
in this proportion docs the cost of build
ing and equipping rods oi these respect
ive tracks differ: 2,700 will build as
much three-foot road as $10,100 will con
struct of 4 feet 8J inch trnck.
To illustrate this principle: A mun
ftciee tho height of n boy will weigh tight
times as much. If tho boy is 3 feet high,
and weighs, 6ay, 40J pounds, a mun 5 feet
8 inches, built in tho same proportion.
will weih 160 pounds, although bo is only
leei o incnes inner tnan tho boy. A
common fro ig lit car weighs eight to ten
tons, and carries a burden often tons. A
rreight Jocomutivo weighs about thlrtv
tons. On a three-foot Hack it has been
touna that iron-mndo freight cars need
hcil'ii uui j.ouu pounus. and wero umn v
strong enougn to carry three tons of
ireigui. in addition to this caso tho oar
can carry four times its own weight.
whereus on tho wldo track It can hmr i.
load only, or slightly, exceeding its own
woignt. Twelve nurrow gauge iron cars
only weigh as much as an ordinary wood
and iron Ireight truck, but thuy will con
vey thirty-six tons of freight wherever
thu big trues; can sufelv movo under only
ont'fourth as much freight. An
freight train of ono locomotive, tendet,
and twenty trucks will weigh over 200
tons, and when fully loaded, as much more
or 400 tons. One-half ot tho powor of
tho locomotivo is, therefore, consumed in
moving 'Hlead weight," and tho other half
in moving Durden. A locomotivo, as wo
said, weighs 30 tons; Us tondor, with
coal and wator, weighs 17 tons, and tho
two togethor 47 tons; so tho deadweight
ot tho engine and tender Is 24 per cent, of
iuu eiupiy train, or ii per cont. or the
laden train. The weight on each driving-
wuuui oi a locomotivo is Dciwcon jive nnd
six tons. Tho Injury sustained by tho
track, under this onormous prossuro on a
singlo point of tho rail, must bo obvious
at a clanco. Ono locomotive, exortimr h
pressure of six tons on each of its driving
whools, will do tho rails moro harm thun n
hundred locomotives running at tho samo
speed whoso wheels pross tho roil with but
ono ton and u half of prossuro. In the one
caso tho iron Is pressed boyond ilsroslstin'g
power; its fibro is strained nnd crushed;
and tho rails soon wear nut under such ox
eessivo weight. Rut to obtain tho neces
sary adhesive powor to movo tho train and
its loud up grades, locomotives must bo
built enormously lioavv.

thero is no help for it on a wide track cx

tlve may bo a tank encino, and carry its
own coal nnd water and dlspenso with a
tender. It need not weigh but six or eight
tons with its supply of fuel and wator.
Tho pressure of its whools will, thoreforo
be but ono nnd n half to two tons each.
A pony locomotive, weighing six tons,
with a ton and a half pressure on the rail
iroiu uutn wuooi, win uraw at the same
speed moro than ono quarter an much
loud as a thirty ton locomotive, because
a part of the weight of the latter has to
bo thrown on tho guiding wheels,
which subtracts rather than adds to tho
powor of tho machine Four such
pony engines will do tho work of the big
one with oaao. Togothcr they will weigh,
with their fuel and wator about thirty
tons ; whereas the big locomotivo and iu
tender wleghs fcrty-soven tons. The for
mer will move threo tons of freight for
each ton or "dead-weight;" tho latter will
scarcely movo but one ton of freight to a
ton of dead weight. In passinger loco
motives and cars, the rolativo superiority
I. 1 1
of tho narrow over tho wldo track, in nn
uuiimicui point or viow, is ovon greater
tuan In freight trains, as easily can bo de
monstrated by analysis of tiio respoctlvo
