BALTIMORE ANI) OHIO RAIL LOAD.
A very interesting document, in the shape of
a Memorial ot' the Baltimore and Ohio Kail
Itoad Company to the General Assembly of
Virginia, has made its appearance, frotn which
we shall extract the substance, for the informa
tion of our readers.
The company was incorporated by the Statu
of Maryland, in 1827, and were "invested with
all the rights and powers necessary to the con
struction and repair of a Rail Road from the
City of Baltimore to some suitable point on the
Olno river, to bo by llicin determined."
In the sante year, the Legislature of Virgi
nia granted to the said company the same
rights and privileges within the Territory of
Virginia, as were granted to them within the
Territory of Maryland, with the exception that
the said road "should not strike the Ohio at a
point lower than the Little Kanawha."
The State of Pennsylvania, proceeding upon
1 the ground that the road must pass through a
portion of that State, incorporated the same
• company, in 1828, but with the condition that
if the said road should terminate near Pitts-
a branch should be constructed to con
the main route with that city.
it was evident that lite unreasona-
condition itViposcd by Pennsylvania could
I not be complied with, the company accepted
I these several charters to commence the work,
I in the confidence that such changes as should
W prove to be necessary of the success of their
■ great enterprise would be granted at some fu
ture lime. The State of Maryland and City of
Baltimore, each subscribed and paid a half a
million of dollars, and the further sum of
$3,000,000 being contributed by individuals,
the road was began July 4, 1828; and at the
close of 1834, a double track was completed to
Harper's Ferry; distant 82 miles from Balti
more.
The original time for completing the road
having been limited, the Statu of Maryland in
1836 extended the time, five years longer; and
that Stale and the City of Baltimore each sub
scribed $3,000,000 for the further extension ol
the road, the former in bonds of the State, the
L latter in money.
Virginia, also, extended the time for making
the road, and subscribed $1,058,420, being two
fifths of the estimated cost of constructing the
lib A through Virginia, from Harper's Ferry to
Cumberland—but this subscription was not to
be paid until the completion of the road to
Wheeling, nor until the city of Wheeling
j should suhscribo and pay $1,000,000. These
I conditions were accepted, and the city of
I Wheeling agreed to suhscribo $1,000,000, mi
s'der certain terms not necessary to recite.
W Pennsylvania was now applied to for an ex
| tension of the time limited by her former act,
r which was granted, with the addition, how
l ever, to the previous requirement, of construct-
I ing a lateral road to Pittsburgh, of new and
r onerous conditions, and discriminations in fa
' vor of the Pennsylvania trade. It was now
Considered, that in consequence of the exac
tions of Pennsylvania, and of the discovery
that Wheeling could not make the payment
required of that city, that it was wholly im
practicable, not only to complete the work
within the time limited, but to complete it at
all, acoording to the provisions of the Virginia
act—that is, to take the road to Wheeling.
The company proceeded, however to com
[ plete the road to Cumberland, making the
whole distance to Baltimore about 160 miles,
Which had cost them seven millions, six hun
dred thousand dollars. They then determined
1 to husband their resources for more favorable
times, to suspend the further prosecution of
the work, and to extend their researches over
| the country south of Wheeling, and abovo the
nlouth of Little Kanawha, to ascertain the
practicability of other routes, which by avoid
ing the territory of Pennsylvania would enable
them to escape from the restrictions imposed
by that State, and to construct the road to the
Ohio, at a point more advantageous to all the
great interests to be promoted by the work.
rThis reconnoisance was made in the summer
of 1843, and various routes have been examined
mud ate satisfactorily shown to be practicable.
These have three principal terminating points
on the Ohio river, viz: The mouth of Fishing
Creek, the mouth of Middle Island Creek, and
the mouth of the Little Kanawha, at Parkers
burgh.
There are five of these routes pointed out,
. viz:— i
I. From Cumberland, via Fairmount, to the
mouth of Fishing Creek, forty miles below
Wheeling.
11. A routn via Bridgeport, to the mouth of
Middle Island Creek, 66 miles below Wheel
-ing.
111. A route to the last named point, via
Clarksburg.
IV. A route to the last named point, via
Sliinstown.
V. A route to Parkcrsburgh, 96 miles below
Wheeling, byway of cither Weston or Mil
ord.
These several routes would pass about sixty
miles through Maryland, and the remainder of
the distance varying from 126 to 163 miles,
through Virginia—making the whole distance
frftm Cumberland to Parkcrsburgh, from 186
to 223 miles, and tho whole distanco from Par
kersburgli to Baltimore, by the longest route,
less than 400 miles.
The object of the Memorial, which is ably
written, is to ask another act of incorporation
from Virginia, extending tho time, authorising
a change of route, to avoid Pennsylvania, and
such other aid, meaning money, as may be con
sistent with the policy of tho State to grant
Wo hopo Virginia will give all that is asked,
and especially be liberal of her money.
What should Ohio do? The road will now
come, most probably to Parkcrsburgh, and it

would require but about ISO miles more of rail
road to bring it through Cliillicothe, to Cincin

at this end of the route.
Should we not look to this matter without
delay?
MELANCHOLY DISASTER— Loss of Seven flu
man J.ives'. A slip from the Norfolk llcrald of
fice, dated 25th inst., gives the following parti
culars of a melancholy occurrence:
The schooner Caledonia, of this port, owned
by Capt. S. Pedrick, and commanded by Capt.
Brown, employed in attending on the wreck of
the British brig Nancy, (ashore near the Wash
Woods,) left here on Saturday last with the in
tention of bringing up the anchors of the hrig,
hut after reaching Cape Henry, the weather be
came so thick that she could not proceed, and
an easterly wind springing up she put hack and
anchored uudcr Buckroe. On Monday morn
ing the wind shifted round to W. S. W. and
hlow a heavy gale all day. In consequence of
this detention, Capt. Brown, it appears, gave
up his trip to the hrig, and concluded to return
to Norfolk; for he got under way about sunset,
though the gale had abated but very little, and
attempted to beat up. The schooner had not
got further on her way, however, than between
iiie Rip Raps and bewcll's Point, when she
capsized, and, melancholy to relato, every soul
on board was drowned! There were, it is be
lieved, 1 or 8 persons on board, but we have
heard only the names of Captain Brown, (tho
master,) and Capt. I. S. Pugh, of Philadelphia,
(formerly commanding the sehr. Seuford, of this
port.) The wreck was seen next morning,and
boarded by Capt. Hughes, (of the Biitish brig
mentioned above, who was at Old Point,) who
found the body of Capt. Pugh entangled in the
railing—all the others have been washed over
board. A boat came otf from the Revenue
Cutter Taney with six men, who, however,
rendered no assistance in taking off the drown
ed man, though invited to do so by Captain
Hughes, and the body remained on the wreck
during the day.
It was late before the intelligence reached
hero, and a friend of Capt. Brown applied on
board the U. S. ship Pennsylvania, at a late
hour of the night for some means of convey
ance to the wreck; when Com. Bolton with a
promptness and politeness highly praiseworthy,
ordered the steamer Engineer to be got ready
immediately, which was done, and she was des
patched in charge of Lieut. Carter and Mr.
Olmstead, Master's Mate, to the wreck, at
which she arrived about 2 o'clock on Wednes
day morning, and returned a few hours after
with the body of the deceased Capt. Pugh,
which was respectably interred. Capt. P., we
learn, has a wife and four children residing in
Philadelphia.
IMPORTANT INTELLIGENCE FROM MEXICO BY
WAY OF HAVANA. The bark Rapid, at New
York, in twelve days from Havana, brings in.
telligcnce from Mexico, a few dayslater receiv
ed by a steamer from Vera Cruz. We find a
translation of the contents of the papers in the
New York Sun, by which it seems that Santa
Ana has been superceded in the command of
the Army.
"The most important news is that Congress
had ordered the manifesto of the Revolutionary
Gencial to be printed. The Supreme Govern
ment had issued orders to Gen. Santa Ana,
then at his plate at Mango de Clava, forthwith
to unite in his command the troops in the Dis
trict of Jalapa," which amounted to upwards of
10,000 men, and to proceed against Parcdes
and his comrades. Accordingly, as we already
know, Santa Ana issued his proclamation, put
himself at the head of 7000 infantry, 1500 cav
alry and 20 field pieces, and on the 23rd he left
Mexico and marched towards Quaretaro, with
Gen'l lleyes, to which point the troops follow
ed him. About this time, the Mexican Con
gress passed a resolution censuring the Minister
at War for having issued orders for Santa Ana
to take command of the Jl:my of the Republic,
when the Constitution prohibited the Supreme
Executive fixim acting in that capacity. The
reply of the Secrotary not having been deemed
satisfactory, they decided that General Santa
Ana had been assigned to command the troops
of a district and was not placed at the head of
the army. It was therefore deemed necessary
that the Minister should forthwith suspend the
command of Santa Ana. Meanwhile General
Bassadre has been appointed to take his place.
How Santa Ana will relish an order which pla
ces him under the command of a junior officer,
remains to be seen. We should not be surprised
if this course was to drive Santa Ana back to
his farm. Tho Havana papers speak in tho
most discouraging manner of the state of affairs
in Mexico. The Indians continue to pour in
from every direction. It is said that the Ame
rican Minister had made another communica
tion to the Government, and the French had
sent an Agent to demand explanations relative
to outrages oft'ored to French citizens. Great
confusion and disorder prevailed in every sec
tion of that devoted country."
PROVIDENTIAL ESCAPE. Captain Bedell, of
the brig Cayuga, who arrived at New Ybrk on
Wednesday, from St. Marks, states that on the
sth inst. lat. 28 36, lon. 83, fell in with a boat
containing four men, and took them on board.
Tliey had been fishing off Havana, and woro
blown to sea during a heavy gale, and had been
without a particle of provisions or water for ten
days, except a few fish which they succeeded in
catching, and on which they had subsisted dur
ing that time.
FBESHF.TS. The ice in the river between Al
bany and Troy broke up on Monday, the hea
vy rain of the previous day having caused a
freshet of about three feet. The ice in the Con
necticut has also given away, causing a serious
freshet noar Hartford.
THE ANTI-RENTERS. Gov. Bouck, of New
York, has issued a proclamation calling on the
Sheriffs to do their whole duty in the suppres
sion of the anti-rent riots, by summoning and
arming all tho force of their respective coun
ties, if necessary; and stating that any remiss
ness on the part of thoso officers will be regard
ed by him as a sufficient caue of removal from
office.
SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 28, 1844.
HORRIBLE AFFAIR. The Rockingham Re
gister of Saturday last, contains the particulars
of a horrible affair, communicated to the editor
by a gentleman of veracity, which transpired
in Randolph county, in the Western part of
Virginia, in June, of the past summer. The
Register says:—
"Some three years ago, 011 Cheat River, in
Randolph county, Va., a man by the name of
Carr, a married man, formed an attachment for
a gentleman's wife by the name of Woolford.
The two agree to run away together, and with
out delay executed their design. After an ab
sence of about eighteen months they returned
to the same neighborhood in which they for
merly livod, wheietlicy resided together about
eighteen months, during which lime they had
one child. They received many threats from
the neighbors, and from what followed, it is
more than probable these threats were
carried into execution. One morning it
was made known that the house occupied by
this guilty pair and their child had been con
sumed by fire. On examination of the premi
ses, the hones of the child were found i i one
corner of the house, the bones of the mother j
were resting upon tho chaff tick, which was |
uot altogether consumed by the fire, and the |
remains of the man were found in the middle I
of tho room, his heart being whole, and his j
head seemed to have been severed from his |
body! His axe and gun were lying by his side, \
which indicated that ho had niado some re- i
sistance."
THE ANTI-RENT DISTURBANCES. Wc learn J
from the Albany and Troy papers that the re-;
suits of the examinations of the persons confin- i
ed in the jail at Hudson, leave little doubt off
their participation in the murder of Rysen- j
burg. It is also believed that the murderer is J
known and will be secured. The impression j
having prevailed extensively that an attempt j
to rescue the prisoners would be made, tho she- I
riff, aided by the citizens, had taken every pre- !
caution to render the attempt abortive. A force I
of 100 men'had been enrolled, armed and on
duty; and 500 citizens were in readiness at a
moment's warning. A committee of the Com
mon Council of the city of Hudson went to Al
bany on Tuesday with an application to the
Governor for arms and munitions, and with a
reipiest to the Burgesses' Corps to proceed to j
J Hudson to assist in guarding tho jaii. Gov.'j
Bouck gave an order for 300 stand of arms, in i
addition to 200 previously supplied, 4,000 car- j
tridges, &c. Tho Burgesses' Corps promptly j
obeyed the call; arid at a meeting at their ar- |
mory on the same day, resolved to proceed, I
with 300 muskets and three field-piceos, in the j
8 o'clock train on Wednesday morning.
DEATH BY THE BURSTING OF A GRINDSTONE.
A man by tho name of Robert Free, a workman'
in the knife and fork manufactory of George
W. Bartholomy, in Bristol, Pa., was iri3tantly
killed on Monday, by the bursting of a grind
stone. He was grinding knives at the stone,
which was driven by water power, when in
consequence of rapid movement, it separated.
One portion, weighing perhaps twelve hundred
pounds, crashed through the walls of the build
ing into the open air. Another portion was
j forced upwards through the roof, and in its re
turn crashed Mr. Free heneatli it. A slight
flaw in the stone was detected, upon close ex
j animation.

bath Schools of New York are forming them-

I their object the promotion of Sabbath Schools

CURE IN BALTIMORE!
BALTIMORE, NOV. 26, 1844.
To Dr. J. H. Schenck—Sir. This is to certify that
about 10years ago I was attacked with a pain in my
stomach and left side, wiili pain iu my shoulders and
weakness, I was also costive at times,and aboutcvery
month I would have an attack of diarrhoea; there was
a lump come on my side, which was pronounced an
abscess on the Liver. I tried several remedies that
were advertised for Consumption and Liver Com
plaint, but could get no relief; 1 continued getting
weaker every day. I got so at Inst 1 could not work;
could not bear my clothes to touch my stomach; I had
pain in my bead and eyes, with high fever; I so con
tinued until May last,"and seeing the certificates of
(Mr. Beekman's) the wonderful cure it made on him,
I was determined to try it After using tlie Syrup
sometime, it made me a little worse, and after the
fourteenth lot tie there was something appeared to
break mid give way, that passed off from mo. 1 then
felt relieved; I still persevered with the Syrup, and
about lite ninetieth bottle the pain left me, and I felt
very sore, as if Iny insides were taw. I took ill all,
twenty-four bottles, and I now feci like another man,
after bcft.g afflicted so long. I feci at this time per
fectly weil, and make this public statement to mani
fest the gratitude I feel towards Mr. Hehenek, for his
v aluable discovery, which has been the means of re
storing me to my health. Any person disposed locall
on me at my residence in Gibson street, (the pump
stands opposite the door,) I will satisfy them that it is
the only medicine that will cure llie Liver Complaint
or Consumption, as it has made a perfect cure ot me,
and I believe 1 was going in a rapid decline.

deafness, nodes on the shin hones and arms, blotches
on the head, face and extremities, progressing on wiffi
