REVENUE REFORM.
One of the most hopeful indications
of gradual popular enlightenment upon
the subject of revenuo reform, comes to
us from New hngland, hitherto sup
posed to bo tho homo of tho "protec
- won mcory ana interest, it seems,
however, that tho pcoplo in that section
arc awaking to a realization of the fact
that, an a youornl policy, protection
is a snare nnd a delusion. A fow
weeks ago the boot and shoo manufac
turcrs interposed an earnest protest
against tho excessive duties upon the
raw materials used in .their industry,
showing that instead of being protected
thoy were really being ruined. A care
ful investigation discloses tho fact that
the cotton manufacturers arc also suffer
ing iu the panic way, nnd that tlio re

sent large quantities, of goods to India
and China. Tho existing systom of
high taxation has so affected tho cost of
machinery and wages that thoy have
been obliged to riiio the price of their
fabrics and the English aro able to under-
sell them in those markets. In 1859-GO

Such facts as those aro nioro potent
than all tho theory thatcau be brought to
bear upon tho subject of imposts. Any
system which diminishes our products

Our people aro under heavier burdens
than ever before ; thoy aro r-truggling
harder to meet tho demands of govern
ment ; they aro more iiulustrioiiH, but
they are not prosperous. The reason
is onvious. I Heir industry is paralizcu
by taxation ; labor is forced
to make its demands keep paco with tho
cost of living, and hence they cannot
compote with systems which protect la

much alarmed for fear that tho potatoos

"Prof. Coc, who jnado a balloon ascen

sovoral snow squalls, aud at ono timo had
two Inches of snow In the basket. Ho and
his companion suffered greatly from tho
cold."
"Wo think there is no use of saying any
thing moro with regard to tho weather at

TKOUT FISIIIXO.
v A fow mornings slnco, two of us, start
ed at early morn (four o'clock) for a day's
Ashing among tho mountains. A brisk
ride of flvo miles brought us to tho base of
"Old Ilipton," up whoso stcop and craggy
sides, wo commenced to mount. Tho as
cent to tho mountain Is vory ahrupt, tho
road winds around tho sldo of tho sauio
seemingly sutpondod In mid air. To tho
right ot us was a hugo wall of forest oaks,
beeches and spruces, extending up the
stoop sldo of tho mountain, to tho loft
prcclplco extending down hundreds of
foct, to tho gorgo out of Bight below, but
over tho bottom of which wo could dis-
distlnctly hear tho
THE ROAR OF THE TORRENT
as It dashed over Its rocky bed into tho
peaceful waters of tho "Otter" milos below.
As wo slowly nsconded, the air bocomo
more bracing, until at lat wo were glad to
lcavo our wagon, fasten tlio reins to the
same, and trudge along on foot, thrashing
our arms vigorously, to kcop up an equal
circulation. "Wo tried to think how hot It
was in Cairo, and, how thankful wo ought
to be, etc., but It was no U30 the cold air
nipped our toes, our nose, and the tips of
our fingers, and forcibly reminded us how
cold jt was with us. In about two hours,
wncn tli r co quarters up tho ineuntaln, wo
reached a llttlo

(having sent up word tho night boforo)
wo found our breakfast waiting us. Fried,

on a certain occasion for tho benefit of tho
proprietor of tho St. Charles hotel, just bo

and our long rldo of thirteen miles mado
us do full justice to tho amplo repast.

F HAT. AND. HOW IT WAS
ACCOMPLISHED.
AN ARMY OF WORKMEN STRETCHED ACROSfl
THREE STATES A VICTOnr WON 11Y
CROWUAR, HAMMER AND SPIKE THE
TKAC'K OF THEIR CONQUEST.
(vrom the St. I.oulaRepubllcan, aitli.)
Tho work of changing the gaugo of tho
Ohio and Mississippi railroad from six foot
to four feet eight inches and a half, was
commenced and finished yesterday morn
ing. Long beforo tho first streak of dawn
appeared in tho sky, cars woro in motion
conveying men to their work on tho road,
and as tho morning light rendered objects
visible, tho groat work was commenced.
THE MODUS Ol'EKAXDl.
In each gang of workmen, six went
ahead of tho party, drawing tho old sniko
on tho insldo of tlio rails. This was aono
by claw-bars, curved at tho "clawed" end
togivo lovoragc, by which tho spikes woro
pried out nnd the rails loosened. Sixjnon
followed with crowbars and handspikes,
with which thoy throw In tho 7J Inches on
each sido, to a lino of spikes which had
!wnn nrnvtnuclv .IrlvAn fain iUn ttntf .m.i
sorvcU not only to fasten tho insldo odgoof
iuu ram, um niso 10 inarK ine now guago
of tho track. Tho balanco of tho can?
numbering between 20 add 30 men, camo
nun mm maiuncu uqwn mo rails in their
now position, with epilog driven on tho
outside rim of tho ratls. To oxpodlato tho
work, only throo spikes woro thus driven
for each rail ono at each end and ono at
tho middle This was all tho fastonlnc
necessary to admit of tho safo passaco of
inuiii uu mo tvuoio oi mo spiKCS can DO
driven.
THE NEW OAUOE.
For tho first two miles thoro wero throe
rails laid, that number having been placed
thoro somo timo sinco to furnish a track
for tho narrow-gaugo rolling stock used
in filling up ground at tho now passengor
dnnnt. Aftrr nftfi.Im. Ilincn turn mtlna
howovcr. thoro yas a single narrrw-gaugo
track all tho rest of tho way, and a row of
old spikes running parallol with tho rails
on the outside edges ot them, markod whoro
tho rails had been. Tho track was remark
ably smooth and oven, and, as tho train
passed over it at express sneed for miles
without creating a jar it was difficult to
boitcvo that tno rails had Icon placed in
position only a fow hours before, nnd
that so much work could havo boen so
thoroughly accomplished in such a short
spaco oi time.
THIS l'KOPLE ENTHUSIASTIC.
At each station, as tho train drew up.
crowd of pcoplo greeted its arrival with
repeated cheers,, nud at ono placo an on
thusiasiastic youth waved a national 1W
in cuiuuiuniurauuii ui uiu micecijiui cvnnt.
Iloobtainod permission to accomDsnv tho
party, and ho immediately planted the stars
and stripes on tho ulatform car. and want
as far as Odin with it.
COMPLETION OF THE WORK.
At each telegraph station on tho wnv
dispatches woro received showing that
tho work was rapidly annroachinu
completion, and, when tho train reached
Sandoval at 11:30, a tolcgram was received
intimating that tho change ofgaguo was
completed throughout tho ontiro length of
tho line a distance of threo hundred and
rorty miles. Mr. Orlswould nnd Mr.
Smith, to whoso nbility and untiring
energy tho success of this great under
taking is principally due, received the
congratulations of iriends on the receipt
otlho tidings.
THE TRACK AT CURVES.
Tho outsjdo rails of tho curve woro al
lowed in sub'h places to remain in tho old
position, and now rails wero laid for tho
narrow guago. This was necessitated by
thejlcsior aro. To suit tho old outer rail
for tho now position it would havo been
necessary to unrivot tho flah-platcs, cut a
littlo olf tho ends of each' rail, and fasten
them together again with tho llsh-plates.
Tj avoid tho loss of timo which such an
operation would havo entailed, new rails
woro Intel as stated." With tho inner rail,
however, it was difloront, and it was
thrown into tho now position tho tamo as
a straight rail. No troublo wns occas
ioned by tho fish-plates. Thoy yieldod
sufllclontly to prevent tho track from be
ing too rizod to move, whilo thoy hold
t'.io rails (Irmly together. Somo alight

tho old chairs, and moro timo was em
ployed in moving tho track in a coudIo of
sections whoro thoy woro than any other
pari oi mo lino.
llAriD OPEKATION.
rno ursi section in wmcn tno cnango
of gaugo was completed was a fifty inllo
section between Vincennes and Clay City,
under chargo of Mr. Wright Kenner.
Tlio Inst spiko in this section was driven
at 0:30 a. M. Tho host timo was mado
between East St Louis and Casoyvillo on
the straight stretch of six and three-quarter
miles across the bottam, Tho chango
in this section, undor tho control of Mr. W.
. Jones, was completed In four hours.
MEN EMPLOYED.
On tho wholo lino thoro was a forco of
2,7:20 men employed. Of theso 860 were
from other roads ccntoring at St. Louis,
and 80 wero from SDrlncfiold and tho
southorn part of Illinois. Each man re
ceived twenty-five cents for each hour be
worked on tho road. Tho actual work of
changing tho gauge, without including rc-
uuciiou oi roiling biock to suit it or pur
chases of narrow gaugo stock, amounts to
about S'25, 000.
CHANGING- 1WI.I.I.VO STOCK.
Tho work of reducing locomotives was
ono involving considerable cost. It. is
dono by narrowing tlio fire-box under tho
boiler i J inches on each sido. Each boll
or is on an averago -10 inches in diamotor,
and tho firo-box would therefore bo re
duced to 25 inches in breadth.' Tho axles
aro shortened 7 Inches at oach end, and
tho frame work is set in, In tho tamo
proportion. Tho broad-gaugo cars aro
rcducod by placing tlio bodies on narrow
gaugo trucks and axles.
CKO.sSINCIH.
Mr. Ooorgo Elliott, to whom tho con
tract for changing tho crossings was awar
ded, substituted two now crosslrrga of an
Improved patont for tho old ones at Odin
ybstorday. In changing tho othor cross
ings, of which thero are fifteen altogothor
on tho lino, tho samo improved plan was
adoplod. The Iron and atcol for tho cross
ings woro prepared in 8t. Louis.
8-An incidont of tho oarly llfo of
Robert Uonnor, of tho Ledger, is related
by Sir. John V. Rabock. of tho Now Rruns
wick (N. J.) Fredontan, which, if not
well authenticated, would hardly bo en
titled to belief. In 1815 Mr. liouncr, then
a Journeyman printer, whilo employed on
tho old merfeaw Republican of this city,
set 32. 007 ems of solid minion reprint
twonty-flvo ems wido, In twenty.four con
secutlvo hours, commencing at,
12 o'clock nooii of ono day and
working through until 12 o'clock noon of
day following I Mr. Uonnor oftorward un
dertook for a wager to set 33'000 ems in
tho time named, and camo ,wlthln three
ems of accomplishing his task, which ad
satisfied thoso who had backed' Father
