Tn whvle length of tho road is capable of
aj-ta.iittig u oiulution that will produco
r..Jgh along tho line to give employment, ut
'"ulle rates to the road, reducing tho
charges fir through freight at least onc-hal
cveretthvrof tho other routes; for on this
Lr.u WfjJ, water and coal aro abundant, nnd
lu (lltimtto causes for 'delay itnd dangors to
te traveling jnihlio totiohlng at Cairo, tho
rlvir renter of tho United Htutw, where,
when tho nnrthurn rivers aro open, parties
tMng plntsiiro or prolll have a choice of di
rection and manner of their further prj;re.
In wlnUr, when navigation is closed abovoui,
cur grand railroad center gives lines as un
limited as the points of tha compass for choice
tho grand Mississippi river, inviting with her
unceasing flow, tho traveler to make a tour
of the maguitlccnt domain she traverses on
her way to tho son.
And when tho tide of travel shall bocome
toi great for ono line and commerce demands
more channels from tho inten'or to tho sea
coa't, we havo only to turn eastward and cros
tho Alleghany mountains at the gap used
clnco the Indians wcro driven backward, left
by tliegre.it Maker of mountains as a passage
between tho east and tho woit, and not twenty
miles from a direct lino from Cairo, the great
est river centar, to , Norfolk, Virginia, tho
best harbor on tho Atlantic.
Tho harbor n't Norfolk, the gap in tho Cum
berland mountains and tho confluence of tho
Mississippi nnd Ohio river, on the eamu lino
of latitude, with CCp miloi saved in distance,
is not luero chance. And whoro naturo has
plainly nnd unerringly marked tho "path"
when tho inountniiii.woro Iret upheaved, and
the brooks began to collect their strength to
form tho great rivers aud roll onward to
ocean, there will bo built the next grand link
of our railroad syntein eonnfcellng'u-wit)t tho
southern, and southeastern network of rail
roads having a common termini at Cairo.
Tho .Mcrppolis 'Promulgator1 is guilty . of
tno ucmagoguory ot descanting upon Colonel
MclCealg's prison oxpcrlcnco during the war,
under tho doluslon, no doubt, that sensible
men will permit their sympathies to blind
them to all othor considerations in tho present
judicial contest. Tho fact that Col. McKoalir
suffered tho horrors of a rebel prison pen
neither HihU to nor detracts from his qualifi
cation! for the bench, however much it may
distinguish him in a soldier nnd a patriot. If
it doe, in tho liiuno of common Itistien lot us
elect ono of tho soldiers among us who went
to death's door under tho flnir of their eountrv.
and returned armless, legless nnd cripples for
life. If tin U to bo the ineasuro of capacity,
Col. McKcu'a is far from tho most deserving.

Although it is conceded the chancos for
passing tho Pacitlc Knllroad Omnibus bill
through tho present congrei aro blight, still
the committee aro at work strengthening
tholr measure. Tho senate committee will
sonn determine their final action, which pro
bably will bo to report the bill embracing the
route on tho 35th parallel from Littlo llock to
San Francisco, Union Pacific Eastern Divi
sion, northern route, from Lake Superior to
Pugot Sound, and Oregon branch of Central
Pacific. An amendment for a branch from
Shrevcport and Marshall, Texas, to tho 100th
meridian will also bo considered, nnd prob
ably favorably. Tho bill as now agreed on
docs not satisfy the southern senators, and
unless thoro is a distinct undertandint: favor
ing tho project for an independent road fur
ther south, these senators will resist tho pas
sage of the omnibus bill.
Tho Metroolitnn Pollco bill, now ponding
beforo tho legislature for Qulnoy's especial
benefit, i causing no littlo stir in that village.
Hoth purtie aro divided as to whether or not
the bill should pxM. Tho 'Herald' admits
that a chango in their pollco is very essential;
yot it thinks that Quincy can regulato her
own local affairs. The '"Whig' favors tha
bill. A change is greatly needed, but wheth
er or not tho metropolitan pollco. would bo
any better is a question to be teted.

It is quito certain that the committed hav-'
ing in chnrgo tho bill fur tho Ohio bridges
will not tako definlto notion in tho proposed
