the MAXAGmwyr ov 'run illi-
Outburst of Indignation against tho
Illinois Central railroad company aro
periodical. Just now the fact that the
company presents signs of thrift Is ac
cepted ns evidence that it Is outraging tho
public by lb exorbitant churges.
It ho happens that complaints and de
nunciations on this head come
upon the both of a material reduction
In tho company's tariff of charges, and
at a time when It is striving to accom
modate itself to the commercial neces
sities of the country.
AVhen wo cull to mind what the 1111
iioIb Central has dlhc for Illinois, how
It ha caused the uprise of Interior towns,
where before, the foot of
man had henrcely trodden;
when we reflect upon Its potency in the
work of developing tho agrlcultur.il ro-r-ources
of the state, wo must bo Mire
that tbo righU and interests of tbo peo
ple demand It at our hands before wo
J thHf whoiibue and denounce the
Tbo Illinois Central has?, as a cotem
ji'jrary correctly remarks, always maul,

public, notwithstanding tho abuse tbut
is periodically heaped upon It. No other
r ;i 1 xerclnet ft more vigilant care for
the nafety and oemfort of paMfiicore
and thetrnfeund prompt trnuamuulon of
fr i;;litt. No other road In tbo north
west Is so well managed and uceos
fully maiiuocuvorod. Fewer Occidents
happen on the line than on any other
road of th Mine extent In the United
Htate. We havo been assured tbut tho
company have never made anything out

We think, Indeed, if the people f Illi
nois will consider well wbat they owe to
the Illinois Central, their tongues will
refuse tonwell a olamor against It that
most frequently has it paternity In some
pen. uinl atlrut or ludtvMuul grievance.

A correspondent of the Boston

of the building. In the rooniH where
tho troops were quartered during tho J
war, wo found tho desfts of busy clerk.i
surrounded by piles of otflolul papers,
and bundles of red tape. In the base
ment wus the postolllce, occupying
nearly tho whole floor, and its entrance
filled at all hours of tho day with an
anxlous-fuccd crowd. On tho second
floor, the way to which Is up the sumo

made little or no reference to the war,
but confined his conversation to the

ded that nearly all tho railroads iu the

before the war, and when the Confeder
acy confiscated all monoys due Northern
creditors they paid those sums to the
"power that were;1' and, being now
obliged to pay theso debts to the lawful
creditors, they have become us poor as a

I Tho results of the vigorous enforcement
of the prohibitory law are beginning to
bofrcverely felt by the German portion of
I the community, which now for the first
1 time finds Its appetite obstructed and Its
national beverage forbidden. There Is
not a German iu tho city who does not
feel hlmsell the most abused of mortals;
and to hear genuine eloquence it is only
ueces.-ary to ask any of our Teutonic
citizens what they think of tho new
order of things. Tiielrsober conviviali
ties areatau end, or can only bo enjoyed
by resorting to means quite foreign" to
their opetiheartcd and Ingi-nuous na
tures. Not that they do without their

they cannot gather In the accustomed
places, and no true German ever drinks
alone. Cntil their privileges arc restored
no other subject will lie of tbo ..lightest
moment to them.
Hut the oppression comes hardest upon
the numerous class who see their means
of gainings livelihood suddenly snatch
od from them by an edict of the State.
To say nothing of tlio vendors most of
