A (J IIEWEY 1 ALBERT KEEKING, | BejnbttoM WM. TWLEV, | B. F. MARBLE, County R.P. WHITNEY. R. P. CaRR Committee. JOS. W. WINTER, The Brotherhood of Locomotive Eogio eero. It was an American locomotive which took the prize the other day at Paris. The pecu liarity of this locomotive which attracted the most marked attention of the committee, va> the shelter provided for the engineer. The European members of the committee had never before considered, apparently, that the engineer was a man, capable of being wet by rain, annoyed by dust,or chilled by cold. The habit of regarding the engineer as a part of the engine, has led to some singular results in England. The southern half of London was paralyzed for twenty-four hours last winter, by the refusal of the engineers to run their trains until the managers of the roads acced ed to demands which they considered just. In self detence the engine drivers aDd stokers of Great Britain have organized a Union, with a journal representing its interest and fitly called the Train, and they found them selves last winter in a position to dictate terms. It is pretty evident that these men are not merely a part of the rolling stock of the roads. In this country we have recognized their humanity sufficiently at least to provide shel ter for them while on duty. We forget them nevertheless, too often. Sitting snug and warm, in comfortable carriages on bleak nights, we do not think of the man on the locomotive in whose bands are the lives of all on the train. The responsibility of the position is very great; we are ready enough to acknowledge that, in a general way, if anybody takes tbe trouble to say so; but we do not often think of the man who stands looking out upon the track, watching the sig nals, and regulating the speed of the train. Does he understand his business ? What a fearful thing it would be to have an engine, with a loaded train, run away! Does he know precisely how to control the powerful machine under him ? Does he know the con dition of the track—where it is safe to put on the whole force of the engine, and where it is necessary to run slowly and carefully? Does he know all the signals at the various stations? Is he careful and vigilant? Will he see and observe them ? Is he sober? lueje are not altogether pleasant questions for passengers by the night express train. We have too many railway accidents in this coun try. Our railroads are not built so thorough ly as they should be. Switchmen are some times careless. Engineers themselves are sometimes unskilful and sometimes men of bad habits. What an excellent thing it would be if there some test by which the men who really know their business and soberly attend to it, could be distinguished from the igno rant and careless. If such a test were known it would be for the advantage of the compa nies and of the public to have it strictly ap plied. Well, there is such a test. There is in this country an association called the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, which unlike the British Union, aims not at raising the wages but at improving the character of its mem bers. This Brotherhood has not attracted much attention yet, but is becoming more and more (avorably known to persons inter ested in railway management and has the strongest possible claims upon the good will of the public. It was founded on the 17th Au gust, lStiil, iu Detroit. At the last meeting of the Grand International Division, in Boston, lust November, eighty-lour divisions weie re ported. The association has branches In ev ery State in the Union, except North and South Carolina and Florida, and in various parts of the Dominion. The Gisnd Chief Engineer is the Hon. Charles Wilson, now or lately mayor of Rochester, and a Monthly Journal Is published in Roch ester, under his immediate supervision, ‘‘de voted to the interests of the locomotive de partment of railroads.” An interesting de partment of the Journal is composed of com munications from the subordinate divisions. The qualifications for membership of the or der are only two—professional skill mid a good character. These are insisted upon, and ev . ry effort Is made to keep the members in tbe right path. If a brother neglects his family or his business, or injures himself by drink, or in any way is bringing reproach upon himself and the order, he is labored with and if p,e proves incorrigible is expelled. Tbe Port land division has recently introduced a pecu liar feature—a voluntary obligation to abstain from the use of intoxicating liquors and of profane language. This obligation is binding upon none except those who take it voluntar ily, but is very generally taken by the mem bers. The voluntary nature of the obligation is worthy of especial attention. It is not made a condition of membership. Temper ance is required of all members, but if any man thinks he can be temperate without ale staining wholly, he is welcome to try. If however he voluntarily p'eJges himseit in the presence of the division to abstain wholly from the use of liquors, he is required to keep his word. There can be no doubt respecting the influ ence of such an association as this. It has already secured the confidence and support of many railroad managers, and deserves the ap probation and encouragement of the public. Prt(NH *f IkcPwilc Raili asd. Dispatches from San Francisco give en couraging accounts of the progress and pros pects ot tbe western end of the Great Pacific ltailroad. It wiilbe remembered that Congress granted to the two principal companies—the Union Pacific and the Central Pacific—the right to build their respective lines from oppo site ends until the; connect. The former having nearly crossed the plains of Nebraska is rapidly approaching the outlying hills of the Rocky Mountain range; while the latter, it ap pears, is making equally gratifying headway, During this month it is expected the last and greatest of the tunnels on tbe western link wdl be opened, and the crossing of the dread ed Sierra Nevada Mountains bo regularly made by the locomotive, into the Great Salt Lake Basin. This achievement of hewing and blasting a pathway through primeval granite barriers, although all included within 150 miles, is equivalent Ufmore than 000 miles of ordinary railroad, in cost and resistatce ovei corae. Upwards of $20,1X10,000 have been ex pended in the enterprise, which includes, how ever, the equipment and material for 150 miles additional. Eastward of the graded portion the lino has been surveyed and located lor 000 miles, developing an easy and favorable route, and it is believed that fully half ol the distance between tbe Pacific Coast and tbe Missouri River will be built by the Central Pacific Company, as they are favored by hav ing their hardest work doDe, and by the pres ence ot large numbers of cheap and servicea ble Chinese laborers. It is assuring to be in formed, also, that tbe business of tbe road Is very large, the earnings for July being $175, 000 in gold; while the operating expenses were lest than $25,000. The Company receives a large subsidy from the Government, and in order to push on tbe work with even greater energy, are offering their First Mortgage Bonds for sale, through Fisk £ Hatch, their Financial Ageuts in New Fork, and our leading Bankers, at rates very tempting to capitalists. The merits and ad vantages ofthe Central Pacific Railroad Bonds are fully set forth hi our advertising columns. The PertlMd n< Keehralcr Rallread. To the Jldilor of the Preu: We. had occasion a few days since, to ride along the line of the Portland and Rochester Railroad, from Bar Mills to the Interior of Waterboro, and were pleased to see laborers engaged all along, grading, ditching and pre paring tfr lay the track for the extension of this road; that it is now in the hands of go-ahead men, and that something is I W oc wtro wmnrot utriliy. ' many of the readers of the Press, id and around Portland are not aware what a beautiful country this road is to pass throUgh. First it crosses the Saco river, which for scen ery, from its source to Its mouth, cannot be surpassed in this State. That part most ad mired by all is Salmon Fails, situated only one mile below where the road crosses the river, and easily reached on foot by well trodden paths running along ita wooded banks. Here the river passes through a deep gorge, forming precipices of great height on either side. Two miles beyond the river, at Hollis Center, there is a cascade or natural dam, which Is quite a wonder. It is almost a perpendicular tall ov er a ledge of seventy or eighty feet. Another place ot great interest is Ossipee Mountain — The view from this hill is grand indeed. At its very base there is a pretty little lake of clear, limpid water, three miles long and one mil* wide, abounding with fish ot various kinds. Looking eastward you see the broad ocean to Portland, Saco, Biddeford and other places. Turn to the northwest and Mount Washington looms up before you, seemingly not more than ten miles distant. You see many other hills in this direction with glimpses of water nestled in among them. The torest of trees all aronnd, is made up mostly of oaks and maple, and in October the various colors of their foliage add splendor to the landscape. Two miles frirther on you see Alfred and the Shakers’ village, both pleasantly located on high ground. It would be well for capitalists to direct their attention to the excellent opportunities opened for business, by the extension of this road, as alter its completion, it will be a direct route to market whether east or west At Bar Mills on the Saco river, where the road cross es, there is one of the best water privileges in the country. Plenty of water the year round, and a good location for cotton, woele.i or any other kind of factories. Abundance of land in the immediate vicinity for drying purposes, and for the building ol dwelling houses; while the supply of lumber of all kinds cannot fail tor many years. Mr. Chas. McKenny has a number of vacant privileges here, which we think his enterprising character would lead him to sell at a figure satisfactory to those wishing to purchase. And besides an enter prising company deciding to build here would receive the ready help of the people, none, of I course being any more enthusiastic on this subject than themselves. Alter looking at this water power, we cannot see why this Is not a good chance for a second Sprague company to invest their money to advantage. AII these things would go to help our city, and if these, with many other great facilities within a few miles of us, are made of use, we shall in a few years see a great change in the business tran actions of Portland. J. W. A. Sanford Conover, the Perjurer.— Mr. T. B. Biown, formerly warden of the Washington Jail, makes the following state ment in regard to Conover’s charges against Gen. Butler and Mr. Ashley: I believe what Gen. Butler has stated— that he never saw Conover, nor any ot the witnesses that came from him. 1 know Gen. Butler never visited the jail to see Conover, nor ever corresponded with him In any way whatever, as my orders were not to let any on* visit him or communicate with him with out my consent. As regards Mr. Ashley, I did give orders to admit him to see Conover. But the friends of Mr. Johnson, while com plaining of Mr. Ashley having interviews with Conover, say nothing of Hon. Jack Kogers of New Jersey, and Hon. Mr. Kadford of N. York, calling to see him repeated, both of whom are well known friends of the Prerident. X con sideied X had no right to make any distinction in the admission of members of Congress to the jail. I was present at the Interviews of Mr. Ashley with Conover on a number of oc casions, and neither saw nor heard anything wrong. Conover repeatedly sent tor Mr. Ash ley telling him not to visit At the jAil, And on one occasion X perfectly recollect Mr. Ashley telling him not to say anything that was not strictly true.” Nkwbpapem is Maine.—There are pub lished In Maine at the present time forty-sev en papers, of which number seven are daily papers, one tri-weekly, one semi-weekly, and the remainder weekly, with one monthly.

Too Bad.—The Buffalo Express satirizes the foolish whimpering of the Conservative pi ess over the imaginary wrongs of the South in the following pointed mariner: ?re wel1 aware that we liaye nevet hesitated to stand by Congress in »ny tvtse measure injoptcil ior ;|le government of thi South and that we have favored Kadical men and Kadical measures or. all occasions But there is a ,mint beyond which we emmot go, in what is now degenerating into a fanat ical and tyrannical war upon the institutions of the Southern States. A recent letter from Montgomery, Ala bama, announces that it is actually proposed to establish there an academy for colored children. We beg our Kadical friends to consider well before taking such a slep. Kev olutions never go backwards, and should this scheme be persisted in, it is probable that a few years will sec similar schools in many Southern cities. Indeed it is not impossible that this fanaticism will insist ere long upon endeavoring to corrupt the white youth of the South by teaching them their letters. The terrible picture ol an Alabama in which the average white mar shall be able to write liis ow:i name, is something belbre which, in any mind not given up to the devilish im pulses which control Thad Stevens and Sum ner, the massacre of St. Bartholomew sinks into comparative insignificance. The sen'ation reports started by the New York Commercial Advertiser in regard to the loss of immense sums of mouey from the Treasury Department does not seem to create much consternation in financial circles. United States securities ate quoted higher than before the pretended revelations were made, though a paper has been started in New York tor the express purpose of giving full proof of frauds and robberies to the amount ot fifty or a hundred millions. An attempt has keen made to circulate this sheet in Washington, but no one attaches any im portance to it. The stories are said to create much amusement among Treasury officials.
