Since that time111 its Success hats

expectations. Ihe enterprisi ng
merchants of our growing ton

vertising- inl its (.olumn1111s and there
are comparitively few homes eit h1

where it is not a weekly visitor.
It. also receives a liberal patronage
from the county. 1 refer, with
pleasure, to its success at home,
buecallse the favor that any enter-I
prise receives at home is a. good
index to its merit.

Everything sceei to be in active
operation at the State .()apitol.
The revision of the rail-road law.,
the formation of new Counties, and
the elietieunt* of a divorce law
Seem to be the most illportant
business before tihe Ilouse. It
seemns that the railroad companies
are not satkiiled with the effects of
tihe Rai lroad law , and are workinr
for a change to be made il .it.
Mr. Miniy's ill before the I louse
in substance is this: It '"takes
from the Railroad Conunmissioners
the power to fix the rates t. be
charged for the tralnportation1 of
Pas'e geri's and freilit, :and41 re
Stores this rihit to tlie companies.
It wants the comlpalies Of the diif
fereit roads., to fix their ( own rates,
and theni sui1.mijt tlhlm to the Com
m 0(issioners fi their cor-rection and
adoption. If t Ile com ai ' are
not theun pleased with the Coilulnis
sioners' work. they want to appeal
to the Suipreie Court, and look
there for help. It iappears that
the companies are anxious to make
out of the people )V
cha rg ingr higvher rat s thal allowed
by the Railroad Comnuission. The
rates fix ed y Iv the Conmission
shioul, inl our1 opiion, be tried a
lon ger timen. W byv make a sudden
change now, except iln cases where
there is a necessity for it ? Most
of the r'oads in the State are ide
penden (lt, an enn al secure enou11gh
capital from the prl'eent rates to
run them, and( make monev at it
tOO. The mass of people should
niot he imp11osed upon01 ini order to
mnakeC a comparatively small nlumf
berI rich.. As to tihe Divorce Law,
we deem it out of place for tihe
L egisl1a ture to act upon it uniless it
should be narrow in its limits.
he enlactmenit of such1 a law
would have a great tendency "to
license ('rime,'' and dIissol utions
of marriages. the most sacred of
ties, would doubtless be far more
