A GRAND DEMONSTRATION!
SECOND UAILROAD TO GLASGOW
Speeches by Megnm. Sliakeirurri,
Clements And Clark.
The second most brilliant nnd prom
ising event in the history of Glasgow
transpired hero hut Monday ni'ternooii'
when the grand spectacle of commenc
ing the second railway that will con
nect this city with the gn'iil commer
cial world, and raise her to distinctiiu
and honor as a great railway center,
took place. Near the nppointud hour
tho streets were alive with people from
near and from far, wending their way
toward the designated spot where the
great enterprise was about to be inau
gurated that had so long been expected.
The Glasgow American Brass Baud
were present and provided, with their
accustomed ability, rich and delight
ful music to the large assemblage, and
added uo little to the interest and en
thusiasm of the occasion. There were
present many of the most iniluential
nnd wealthy citizens of Howard coun
ty, as well as from a distance, and fine
carriages and richly caparisoned
Morses were numerous, Hie day was
propitious, every one seemed in merry
mood, and Old Sol ' himself seemed to
smile eucouragingly upon tho anticipat
ed proceedings. Tho pluco selected,
whereat the first incision should be
made to cut a passage for the iron
horse, was in close proximity to the
large ice-house of Mr. John Seibel, and
near tho tobacco manufactory of Judge
Fea.el. The first on the programme
was several layontc peiees ol music
from the band. The crowd gathered
around and took possession of every
nvaiiaiMo position that allorded ease
or conspicious distance to tho spot
whence the first shovel-full of ground
was to be taken ; the roof of the ice
house was soon covered, nnd we notie.
ed nmong the number our friend
Jim, the reporter for the Journal, who
had struck au attitude with front side
down, aud was diliirentlv amusinar
himself taking notes upon a sheet of
foolscap. At the same time, a tender
youth of twenty summers, more or less,
was sitting on the grass in the shade of a
6mall boy's leg, hugely enjoying him.
sefl himself in wearing away a lead
pencil which he held in his hand.
A circle was formed with a rope
within which appeared Miss Alice
Sebree, daughter of Judge fiebreei
of Fayette, who had been select"
ed as the one upon whom should rest
the honor of throwing the first earth,
and Miss Candace Roper, daughter of
Hon. A. W. Iloper, who was present
as a representative of tho M. & M. It
II. Mr. Roper beiug one of the direc
tors of the latter road. Following we
give a synopsis of the speeches deliver
ed by Messrs Shnkelford, Clvments
and Clark, and regret that wo are uu
able to give them more concise and
mr. bimkei.fohd's urictKir.
Mr. Shakelfiml, in substance, said
that we have assembled here to witness
the inaugration oerempnies of the Lou
isiana & Missouri River Railroad,
which, without doubt, would end in
tho early completion, of the road.
They had teen dark days, had seen
the time wheu it would not hiwe been
t-afu ty have made known what, dark
clouds there were hanging over them,
but now the clouds had passed away
and the bright sun of success shines
upon us. lie could now speak of an
assured fact in. fctating that the road
would be speedily constructed, which
be could not do before, but uow the
success of tho road was certain. We
must yet be prepared to make sacrific
es, if necessary, in order that our town
may bo made the central railroad city
that shall link the Union together.
We must expect to submit to disap
pointments anil httve men grumble be
cause tuxes are high, but dou't deceive
yourselves, for you will rcr.p the full
benefit of every dollar so expended,
lie was glad to say that our counly
c ii'rt had anticipated tho interest nc-
r dug on the bonds, and were now
collecting it. Old Howard would pay
:er debts. Many may blame, but
every man will feel proud wheu the
debt is paid. He felt flattered that
it was his privilege to announce that
tho importance of the road was such
that cnpitalists4rival each other to get
possession of tho road. At first we
were obliged to go to the capitalists,
now they camo to us; while at first we
sought them, they now seek us, because
they see the importance of tho rond,
which runs through the central and
richest portioa of the state. It wa.'
therefore not strange that this road
should receive the attention of ironey-
ed men. This part of the road was
now turned over to the contractors
Messrs Forbes, Hays A Levitt, who
have undertaken the contract in good
faith and who have the will and abili
ty to put it through. It gave him
pleasure to announce Miss Alice Se
bree, as the lady who was to have the
honor of throwins the first dirt. He
considered the eomnliment one thai
was merited. Her father, Judge Se
bree,"one of the directors had stood by
the road in its most discouraging hour,
and labored to push the road onward
until his efforts were crowned with
success. Miss Sebree would, in future
years look back with pride and pleas
ure upon what her father had done and
the part slic wouldperfoi'm thero tlmt
Mavor Clements, of the Macon
Journal, was introduced by Mr. Slmk
elford. and the following is, in sub
MAJOR CI.EMKN'ra' Sl'IilWII.
Fellow citizens ladies and gentle-
men : lou can prooaiiiy imagine trie
difidence of one so young as myself in
following a speaker whose head is silver
ed with years, aud has lived among
you a long time, honored and respe
ted. Ho spoke tor the contractors.
Messrs. Forbes, Hayes and Levitt, and
if he should make a failure it should
be charged to them. When God crea.
ted heaven and earth he said 1st there
be liiiht, and there was liirht. To
man was given a mission. Man for.
got the mission and proclaimed himself
equal with God, and was driven forth
to earn his bread by the sweat of his
brow. By this sin we all fo 11, BtilGod
did not deprive man of tho means to
work out his own Imp pines. In his
efforts to regain the lost blessings, we
have the printing press, the great lever
that moves the world, and in its trail
followed the steam engine, whoso victo
ry was clebrated 100 years ngo. Upon
his first visit to Glasgow he was re
minded of a joke: A Gentleman trav
eling came to the forks of two ronds
where he met a boy of whom he inquir
ed tho road to Noshow. Tho boy
answered that if he took tho right
hand road, before he got half way
he'd wish to God ho had taken the left
hand, and if ho took the left hand
road before he got half way he'd wish
to God he'd taken ther right hand road.
But whenthe railroads to Glasgow are
finished, bad roads will bo done away
with, and wo will bo thaukful for
the magnificent palace cars which we
do not now appreciate. A few years
aao in the little State of Pike, for Pike
was nearre a State then a county.
The L. & M. R. R. was first proposed
through the columns of the Louisiana
Journal, by the editor of that' paper,
aud he told the people they were stan
ding in their own light With such
men as Major Lewis, Shackelford,
Cambell, and Forbes, Hayes und
Levitt, our railroads were bound to
succeed. Wo had passed through a
terrible war of five years, some under
the starry banner of our fathers and,
some under the misguided stars and
bars of the Southeren Confederacy,
but now we were ugaiu ono, to labor for
the interests of our common country
and be a happy and united people
When God fouud man had sined, he
said "the seed of the woman should
bruiso tho serpent's head." Siuee
then to goud undertaking had been
accomplished wilhout the assistance of
woman her prayers and encourage
incuts. Therefore it was meet that a
lady should be selected to throw the
first shovel of eaj'th on the Mad, i.ml
Mi: Alice Sebree was the one. selected
to have the honor, to whom thespevker
had the pleasure i of prts-.nting the
shovel for that purpose.
While tho band played a favorite
air, Miss Sebree stepped forward, with
shovel in hand, and commenced tho
tho grading by throwing tho first
shovel-full of earth on the L. it M. R

Hu cniftu to Howard miniy lirty-one
years ago. The fiivt iiterfuiiiment he
received in the county was from n citi
zen of Glasgow. This day we meet to
celebrate the event of uniting a rail
way to connect tho Atlantic ocean
with tho riches of India. Somo allu
sion had been made to the past by his
friend who had proceeded him. That
lay was now beneath us. We are a
iroud psoplc, a great people, and should
be united and happy. Nono hud done
more for tho road than Mr. Shackel
ford and the directory, and bo spoke
advisedly when he Baid arrangements
are now being made that, when con
sunjatcd, as they certainly will be, will
nsure the meant whereby iron and roll
ing stock wifl be obtained, aud all
that remained to be done is build the
road. Ought we we not to elory and
feel proud ? We have been in the
background ; have attended to our own
business too closely, and have not at
tended to other people's, and have let
them get the start. But the .lieu had
couio to do differently, and tho city of
Glasgow he had forgotten exactly how
old sho was will prosper and grow to
be a great commercial city. Ho had
been the first clerk of Howard county,
He was here to-day to represent Fay
ette who hud willingy contributed her
portion in aid of the road. In about
twalve moths time these young ladies
could go to Mexico, after supper, and
return before bed time. We will then
be united with the whole world. I
beg of you to treat tho contractors
kindly ; give them all the assistance in
your power j have confidence in them,
for they are gentlemen worthy of your
confidence. He did not want to make
a long speech, but merely one of con
gratulation. He congratulated all
classes upon the bright future To

er, the young lady nnd gentleman who
shoveled the first earth on the M. & M.
Railroad, who each threw a shovel of
earth, emblematical of the unity of
purpose pervading the two railroad
companies. The shovel used by Mas
ter T. and Miss W. on the occasion
was the same they had used on the L,
& M. rond, nnd had been richly em
belished, by Wicks nnd Cawthorn, at
tho instance of the contractor, M. C.
Mr. J. I). Kcermtigli made a few re
marks, in the cotirso of which he said
that much had been said to create
a jealousy between the two roads, but
without effect. The two roads were
most harmoniously linked together in
interests. Mr. Koebnugh proposed
three cheers for the L. & M. R. Rail
load. Mr. Clements proposed three
sheers forthe Glnscrow American Brass
Band, nnd also proposed three cheers
for the M. & M. R. Railroad., Which
were all.given most heartily.

Tho New York Sun throws addition
al light upon the great fight among the
gamblers. 1 ho bears began the tight,
and they consisted largely of heavy
importers, who have been speculating
in gold more or less ever since the war.
The first succeeded in forcing down
the market a little, but the I iflk-Uould
party, eithar have made previous ar
rangements by locking up eolcl, or by
more thorough understanding and
agreement to tako everything offered,
presently turned the scalo and forced
up prices until the weaker betters on
the ot'.ier side began to run over to
thorn for protection. Then, having
the game all their own way, they forced
ui) the price to 1,00 aud drove tho
boars to a compromise for about twelve
millions of their indebtedness. But
the henvv importing interest still held
nut. and hadbeen emrjlorinc Secretary
Boutwell to help them out of the mud,
and at length he did so. The an
nouncement that he would sell four
millions sent down the price, relieved
