THE IRON MOUNTAIN JlAlLllO'AD.
Tlio work upon tho Iron Mountain
railroad has been pushed forward with
great vigor and euergy. Its progress Is
thus noted In a Iato number of tho Fa
Tho Iron Mountain railroad from Bt.
Louis to Columbus', Kentucky, Is pro
gressing rapidly. Tho grading and ma
Bonry are alrendy dono. Bo Is tho tunnel
of 050 feet. Tho track Is bolng laid and
bridges aro being built as fust ns tho
Htreams aro reached by the track-layers.
It Is oxpectcd that the road will bo open
for trains by tho 1st of July. A ferry
boat, capablo of crossing 300 cars, is be
Ing built to crosstbo Mississippi between
lJelmont and Columbus. iow towns
nro springing up all along tho road,
property Is Increasing In value, popula
tion Is Mowing In, and thousands of per
sons are noveunKcd In tho active pur
milts of business along the Hue, whore
there was llttlo or nothing doing.
When completed, tho runulug ar
rangements will be such that loaded cars
without change, will be sent through
from 8t. Louis to any southern city,
while parage tickets will bo sold over
this line to any -desired point In tho
Ten now and magnificent pussengor
cars aro soon to be placed on tho road; a
hundred box cars aro building at tho
company's works In Carnndalet, aud
eleven additional locomotives will soon
bo placed upon tho Hue, the company
being determined to commeuoo opera
tions with an abundant supply of rolling
It is to bo regretted that tho proposi
tion of Col. Allen to reconstruct tho
Cairo & Fulton rallroail and run through
trains from St. Louis to Illrd's Point, op
posite Cairo, was not accepted. Had our
authorities availed themselves of that
proposition the cars on the Cairo A Ful
ton road would now bu running to
Charleston, and In 1oh than sixty days
through to St. Louis,
While the ciiequ?iieo of our failure
In this behalf will probably be nothing
more serious than a protracted delay In
tho opening of tho Cairo it Fulton road,
it would have been tho part of wisdom
to have provided ovn against that.
Tho intelligence reaches us through
the Chicago 'Tribune that an Kuglish
capitalist, named Maekay, has purchased
tho franchises of the l & V. mad, and
avowed a purpose to proceed to tho con
htrilUfuit of that thprouhfare. Without
giving full credence to this roport, wo
are fully pureuaded that the project Is
not, in "-Jim? hiippom;, abandoned. With
in the next throe year it will be well
advanced toward oompiutlou, muoh of it
In n .( 'VHstful o juration. Kven this Ii
placing a "ooiuummntlon to be duvoutly
wished for" home distance in tho future;
but "detter late than never." When that
end ii aocomplNhed, tho uccoxsltitM of
travel and business will demand through
trains to St. Louis, and the demand will
no doubt be com pi I ml with. Wo shall
the realize something fivmUio prosperi
ty oT which our cotemporary speaks.
"jm: empiee is eeacev

moral ideas," profiting by tlio divisions
of tho people, ami the mail rancor ot an
oligarchy In the South, .seized tho reins
ofofllce. aud plunged the nation Into
one of the most bloody' and causeless
struggles which over disgraced human
history At tho close of the gigantic con
test, tho nation had to hear on Its 'broad
shoulders silcli it world of debt that tho
fanatical authors of our roln Htarted tlio
thievish cry of "repudiation" till It was
drowned by the cry or tho honest de
mocracy throughout tho land. In this
dllpmma, with an Imbocllo president,
who know More about one of Itergh'n
equestrian favorlle3 than tho Constitu
tion, tho shoddy thieves who brought
about this terrible result have aggravated
the stupendous outrage by Inaugurating
a movomont to establish a monarchy.
.They aro in a quandary to escapo tho
brand of overlaying Infamy with which
they would bo sealed, If tho Itepubllc,
now perishing in their hands, should bo

And, honoo.thoy want a king, or a
strong government, to protect them from
the coming wrath of tho people. They

"GO TO HELL" ROSS, Otf KANSAS.
Tho removal of deserving floldlers and
prominent radicals from offlco by tho
president, for tho reason only that they
wero found in ofllco at tho dato of his
accession to. tho presidency, is exaspera
ting many of tho leading members of
tho radical party, besides "go-to-hell"
Ross, the senator from Kansas. But it's
not our fight. If a democrat is holding
ofllco anywhere, ho is no doubt a very
shaky democrat, so "off with his head."
Oir with everybody's head. Tho more
radical heads that tumble, tho louder
tho complaints and tho intenser tho
Canvassing tho cruel removal of good
radicals and gallant soldiers aud tho ap
pointment of blatant stay-at-homes and
whitewashed copperheads, in his state,
Mr. Itoss recently said In tho Senate:
I sought that interview for tho purposo
of protesting against the sweeping
changes which wero being mado In tho
ofliclalsof my state, whereby men who
were among tho best republicans and
tho bravest soldiers In that stato wero
being removed for no nssiguablo cause,
and an entirely d Moroni class of men ap
pointed In their places. During that in
terview I was astonished and nainnd to
hear from tho Hps of the president, tho
assertion that wiicro any man had held
ofllco during the past year and a half it
was presumptive evidence that ho was a
Johnson man. I repeat, that I was as
tonished and pained.
In astonishment and pain wo come
upon bad temper and extravagant
Scarcely a man has been appointed to
those positions' from tho ranks of that
great army of heroes who so largely rep
resent the manhood of that state, aud
who went out with their lives In their
hands, to endure hunger and fatigue,
heat and cold, that we might sit hero as
tho representatives of the country saved.
Hut In their stead wo have appointed
over us skulkers In tlino of danger and
tnvti notoriously unlit for any public
trust 7n ono Instance a gallant soldier,
eminently qualified for tho position lie
held, ami who will go a cripple to his
grave, Is displaced byu in an who not
only enjoyed the security of his 11 reside
during the war, but is known to have
been a uro-slavery sympathizer during
tho border rullllau disturbances of tho
Territory. In another a coldlcr Is dis
placed by a mere camp follower, who
mude It his occupation during tho war
to plunder the government at every turn
and till his own pur.-o with tho
the Ill-gotten gains of stolen beef. In
still another a bravo and gallant soldier
us over drew a blade, who entered tho
army a private and won his euaulettes
with his sword, It displaced by a man
whoiio only recommeudutlon, In tho
eyes of those to whom ho owes his ap
polutiiieiit, is Ills personal hostility to
aud defamariuu of myself. This consid
eration, in fact, will apply to nearly ev
ery appointment that lias yet been made
In my Stato,
Worked to fury by his own recital wo
hear what ho will do:
Tho faithful, Intelligent and influen
tial radical republican, be ho holdicr or
civilian, may go back to his law, his
farm or his shop. This administration
has no u-o for his services. If a repub
lican President ostracizes them from per
sonal pique, or to gratify tho animosity
of others, ho dooJ no honor to himself
aud no service to the ouutry; and I, as
their friend and comrade, will not stand
by nnd acquiesce in It from any consider
ation of personal Interest or hope of Ex
fcoitRom! , Toll, him to "go to hell"

Tho following dispatches wero received
from Washington yesterday evening:

Tho President gave audience to a largo
numberof callers to-day. Amongthein
wero Senators Sherman and Pomoroy,
and Representative Orth. Tho ante

Humored IMltluct Change.
Rumors aro agalnTlfo to-day of Cabi
net changes. It is now said by those who
profess to have correct Information on
tho&ubjoct, that not only Secret wry Fish
will noon retire to private life, .but tilo
that Secretaries liprio and Hoar have in
formed President UranUhat tnoy would
like, at an early day, to' withdraw from
From tho present aspectof affairs, ' It
scorns safe to assert that, probably within
thirty days, there will be change In
throe Cabinet oillcers.
It has beon known for somoUimo that
It was Attorney General Hoar's Inten
tion, so soon as tho rush and pressure for
I ofllces Incident upon beginning a now
administration, was over, lopiurti w
civil llfo to practice his profession.
Secretary Borlo finds olllco duties ill
suited to his temperament, aud having
rendered. President Grant all support in
his powor to commence his career as
president, with proper councils, ho will
now retlro In favor of somo other gentle
man. With these threo Important changes
thero may bo an ontlro chaugo In our
Whom Prcsldont Grant will call to tho
State Dopartmoutis of courso unknown,
but fliere Is good reason to bellove' that
lftwlll bo a person of moro decided con
victions than thos'o possessed by and
which havo controlled Secretary Fish.
The KjiraKne-Abbolt Utmrrel.
Tho city has been somewhat excited
all day over various rumors regardlug
tho Spraguo-Abbott dlfllculty. It was
generally oxpectcd that the aflUir would
assume such a shapo this a. in. ns to
olthor make matters worse, or.produco a
Senator Abbott was understood to have
said that ho would transmit a note to
Spraguo this morning, demanding n full
retraction of tho words spoken, to which
oflenso was taken, or ho would watch for
Spraguo and openly insult him.
Htnil Uftlccs orNonutor Milliliter.
In this condition matters stood until
a Iato hour this morning, when Senator
Sumner called on Spraguc, aud after a
somewhat lengthy interview proceeded
to call on Senator Pool who was acting
as the friend of Senator Abbott.
After talking over tho unpleasant con
dition that a flairs had assumed, both
Senators proceeded to the resldcuco of
Sprague, and held a long lntorvlew with
Mr. Spraguo mado such explanation as
was satisfactory to Senators Pool and
These gentlemen then withdrew. and
called on Mr. Abbott, where, at this hour
they are cloeted with him.
No doubt is entertained but tho whole
dlfllculty will be nmlcably settled through
the intervention of Sumner and Pool.
Tho following dispatches from Chicago
reached us yesterday evening:
Ti Z'.xirn .HfMtlnu.
Contrary to previous expectations, It Is
now probable that Governor Palmer will
not call an extra session of tho Legisla
ture. I'rull mill llralu 1'rot.jicct.
Dispatches from tho southern sections
of the State represent the fruit nnd grain
prospects In that region as oxeellont. -
The Supremo Council of the Tndepe
dent Order of Knights Templar, has
closed Its sesklou in this city. A now
ritual wasadopted. Measures were taken
to have the Council chartered by Con
gress. Harry Caisel, of Chicago, was
re-elected R. G. C, and most of the oill
cers remain as they were for the past
Wo take tho following paragraph from
Rev. Michael Million, Assistant Pator
of St. Patrick's Church, In this city, died
yesterday morning, aged thirty-four. It
is nstrango coincidence that ho died lis
tho same house which has had tlio same
fatal Influence upon four priestly occu
pants within n period of about seven
mouths. J to v. Patrick Dillon entered
thchouso on (he Mtli of September, 1S0S,
