The progress of roihoads in the Uni ted States ia ouo of the marvels of the Rge. Within a tH i iotl of leaa than forty years upwards of forty-one thousand miles i.f at earn railroads have been coiv t4.nn. ted in tho Vnitetl State, at an ng gregate coht of $1,002,501,000. In the MX New Kngland States there are 3,851 miles of railroad completed nnd in use, constructed at ft cont of $IiK,tWl,4S3. In New York 3,025 30-100 miles, which coat tHoiSTa.i'.Hk In rennHjlvunia, where the first railroad in the United State was conhtructed in 1800,4,037 mile are in optratiou, w hieh cost f210, 0K),tKK). Iu addit ion to her 4.037 miles of railway, Pennsylvania psscks s up ward of 700 tuih s of underground track h a ling to coal mines from ore beds and furnaces. It is atated that a comhined military and naval expedition will tdiortly visit lluasiatt America, for tho purpose of taking formal jxssesion of tho various w ttlcinenta, and also of acquiring neeu rato information relative to the topo graphy, climate and resources of that country. The frcedraen's bureau oGiccrs at the .South will commence on the first of next month to iwuo rations to all who deprived of tho betiehtB ol compeuuou, we are also deprived of tho protection of lU law against extortion. One cor poration has the monopoly of our busi ness, and that corporation has nothing to satisfy but its interest This is not a verv l'leasant state of things to con- .11 teinj.lato with a business eye ; tnougii in a moral point of view it may be very gratifying to know that if Mr. Daniel Robinson continues to Uimise the l.iess- in-'s of his management upon the busi ness world, he will be consolidated into a corporation where lie can charge what he chooses without being under tlie ne ecwiity of making.fal.se affidavits to evade the law. Certainly, every man in Western Ver mont must now bo satisfied, that the building of the Harlem extension is an absolute necessity. If any entertained horn s that tho contract between the Trov & Boston and tho Ilensellaer & Saratoga companies, sending all the through business bv another route for tea yearn, might be broken up, or that the lease of the link between Hoosick and the State line might not be carried into effect; they must bo satisfied that the entire absorption of the Troy &. Bos ton company by one of the great corpo rations of New York constitutes an ar rangement which is likely to bo perma nent. The avowed object of the Rens selaer A; Saratoga Company in thu gaining control of all the lines, is to concentrate all the through business on one of the New York routes. It is well understood that tho Western Vermont linn cannot be made to pay on local business with any system of charges under which it has heretofore been op crated. Then without a new outlet, or the prospect of one, the Bennington & Rutland railroad must be discontinue.! or it must bo run under an advance of i-nff. neeessarv to surDort it. The rates of the past few years have been all that our business could live under, and if tho rates are increased our business must diminish. Our readers can esti mate how long they would have a rail road when its existence depended upon the constantly increasing rates on a con staidly diminishing business. If our rood is deprived of through busimss there can bo but one result its ulti mate discontinuance.

The mode pro posed was the fairest ever known in Vermont for voting money, for it made an epmhty, and at tho same time pro tected ev. ry el iss of voters and tax-payers. One speaker had denounced the law as "infamous" and that it was "con eoetud by tibrain inf. rnally cunning."- Ife would say that the entire Commit tee of the towns on the line of the road comprising the best citizens iu those tow ns had tavored it, without a single exception, as also evtry Representative in the legislature from these towns, the Legislature passed it unanimously and ,t received the hearty approval of Gov. Dillingham, on account of its manifest great fairness and justice. He wanted to know, with these facts iu view what right gentleman had to charge it with leinir an "infamous act, or on w nat tan gible ground they could base so grave an accusation. The sneaker then took up tlie sub ject of the Assent, and proceeded to give it a rigid analysis, declaring that as compared with town meetings it was much the fairest method. The gentlemen on the other side had laimed that under tho machinery of the law, the people were robed of their iL'hts. and had said that in sew lork t hey had full protection. He would say that in New York, according to tho pro visions of the law, tho Commissioners to take char'' of the tow n bonds were appointed directly by the Supreme Court tho people had nothing to do with that very important matter, lu Vermont it is different. Hero the pco- ilo select their own Commissioners. But Kcntlemen claim that in New York subscriptions are conditional; no part of the.r money is to he used uuui me road-bed is made ready for the iron, and they had asked tho question w hy it was not so hero, lie would tea them: the tho road must bo graded by aomc. on: If it wero so hero tho road could not be built at all, for there would then be no means for grading it. Besides, iuteen years ago the towns in New York, on the line, had lad out large amounts of money, in heavy grading and mason- work, and had, therefore, done their share in this direction. There is every protection in the law, and the assent under it, for it gives to tlie towns the right to fix thoir own conditions in ev ery particular. One gentleman had meanlv insinuated that "some National Bank would gobble up the bonds in the end," and tho people wou'd lose there by. He wanted to tell that gentleman (Mr. Sibley.) that ono of the express conditions of the assent is that the bonds shall not be sold below par. They must bring dollar for dollar; and yet ahirod attorney of the Troy & Bos ton Rnlroad talks about their being gobbled up!" He remarked if you want to see a pco pie anxious for a railroad, go down through Lebanon, Petersburg, Berlin, kc, and see what measures they have taken under an "infamous law," "con cocted by an infernally cunning brain," to gain railroad facilities. In Lebanon the amount raised by the town is tw enty five per cent, of the grand list, or equal to $150,000 from tli6 town of Benning ton. In the other towns, Berlin, Pet eruburgh, &c., it foots up 18 per cent, on the grand list. Now, then, if these fanning tow ns, with little or no manu facturing interests, can go into this work so zealously and effectively, why should towns on this end of the line, with manufacturing intersts at stake, second to none in the State, hesitate and hang back? But gentlemen ask, "why not raise the money by subscription?" He would say that altout one year ago that method was tried, and only $18,000 or $20,000 could be secured in town. His own idea was, that it was unwise to ask for $125,000 from the businessmen ofj Bennington, for if so raised he believed business mtht necessarily be crippled. The great question now is, does this community neen a railroad, aud if need ing it, are they ready to act oecording IvV If retith iiu n don't want it. whv. don't hae anything to do with it. itj !.' 1J14 .Wll II ..... . .. 0 , built. We are Why did that application fail be fore the legislature r aimply i-ecause tno jeg islatnre e.f Vermont had never been in the habit of chartering two roads run ning parah 11 to each other. Wo hae a direct road from here to Troy now. Ho wanted i very man to act accord ing to bis own best Judgement. I mess he deemed itJo4-he public good, he w anted no man to subscribe to the move ment. Tho idea that the Harlem oxh ti'.io.. could be put in running order for $1, 400,000 had been ridiculed and p;o uoutieed foolish by certain gentlemen. In regard to this he wished to i-av that a year ago thre e different corps of con tractors made their estimates m the cost of building, and the highest esti mate made was $1,000,000; since then the same parties had agreed to build it for less. Recently Lngilmer Lindsley, of the Vt. Central" Road, had made a close estimate, which figured up than $1,4000,000, and he (Lindsley) had said that at that price tlie contractors would clear $100,u00. Iu the face of such facts, presented by railroad men, ' what is the uso iu talking about it eo.,t ing $3,000,000. Iu closing Mr. Park said if tho Har lem extension was built, it wouhl run through tho village of Bennington, he was happy to assure them. The route had been pronounced by the surveyors not only eniintmtly feasible, but less ex pensive than the survey from No. Ben nington Hoof-ick way. Ho did nob wish to bring in his per sonal feelings before the meeting; but he did desire to say a word concerning the recent flood of railroad literature from Troy, which had been bo general ly sent over this scscticu of country. The circular of the Rensselaer & Sara toga Company was a tistaie of flagrant, palpable falsehoods, as he could readi ly convince any unprciljiidiced man, and that of the Troy k, Boston Compa ny, Issued at the same tine, was in just tho same category,. He did not want people to refuse to support the Harlem extension because of these foul una wanlou libels. Meters. E. Thompson Clalo and JoVJFWarron, of Troy, whose names wero appended to the Rensselaer k Saratoga circular, had signed their names to statements of which they certainly had no personal know ledge, since ho had never exchang ed a word with them on railroad mat ters in nis life. And yet by thoir sig natures appended to this circular they in strong language givo tho public to understand that they themselves were personally knowing to what they gave their signatured to. Ho produced a let ter from tho first-named individual which showed that he had no personal acquaintance with him. Tho same thing was true of at least two of the Executive Boarel who signeel the T. & B. circular; ho did not know them, and never exchanged a word with them on any topic. Aud still they toll the public that they are personally know ing to w hat they sign in their official -apac'.- lty. Ae had written to those gcutk meu asking when it was that he held these conversations with them; but as yet they had not de'gned to accoid him a reply. Touching upon the Bennington Cen ter meeting, tno speaker had no hesi tancy in saying it was run purely in the interest of theX. k B. Company, though he had no doubt some who participa ted in it elid not so underslaml it. One gentleman who had been weustomed to take an active part in town matters for the past .50 years, was horded and hiss ed down, insulted and abused, when he tried to address the meeting, because, perchance, it was thought he was iu fa vor of tho town assumingi! proportion ate amount towards the Harlem enter prise. More, than this the proceed ings were votetl to be published in the Troy Timi'xa foreign newspaper rather than our owu home paper. If these things did not show the animus og the whole affair, he elidn't know what could. Let the people act according to their own best judgement aud interests aud ! he had no fears for tho ultimate result. have a personal knowledge e.f tho ta-ts, as stated by them. 2'ttv th -io'is nami'J a'xuv, I d n4 i icic by i(fit, and mlh none (( thnn .air rrer i;j a cr of' to in 'I'tat km in ta.y I iff on railroad ma'U-r.

Siuco tho new reconstruction bill was passed, in almost every part of the South, the movement has been towards order and not (7n.)8 as before. A few men, gen erally civilians, are found here and there, who still ' proffer bad counsels, and advice, if not resistance, at least de lay. They fancy, or seem to, that a casj may be made up for tho Supreme Court, and that they cau get relief from that quarter. But these are only tho exceptions. The leading public men, and especially the military men, seem disposed to accept the sit uation, negro sulVevagc and all, and make tho best of it. An. Englishman by the naino of Roid. has ioiirueyed through the South ern States since the war, und has pub lished a volume. He describes tho more sensible of the military men, m contrast with civilians. Ho was or. board a steamboat with a rebel gener al. "Sonic- ono said the war wasn't over yet. "lsu't it?" said the general. 'Well, maybe you haven't had enough of it. But I toil you tho men that did the fighting have. What's more they are satisfied to quit, and take things as they can get them. More still, 1 don't know of anybody that isn't satisfied to quit except the stay-at-homo sneaks that have never yet made a begining. You are very full of light now, all of a sudden, when it isn't needed; why didn't you show some of it when we wanted you in the trendies at iiicn moiid?" The South has suddenly a wakenedto the value of tho negro vole, and is as earnest to secure it in thu in terests of the old masters as it lately was fierce in opposition to such sut frage. Uviiynyat it mut ut. tox Court House with L. .-'h surrender. But on tho 11th of April, a singht pistol bullet brought upon us the most terri ble and shocking disaster of the war in tho loss of Abraham Lincoln. On the next day, with his death, his constitu tional successor, Andrew Johnson, Vice President, became President of the United States. All things considered, his first, official act in this capacity should have been the calling of Con-1 greis together. As things have turned out. however, it. is tlfii. tl't to say wfttliu- his mistake in this matter and all his budget of blunders have or have not resulted for the best. We are inclined to think that, these political blunders during the first two years of the war, have really resulted iu making the war for tint l iiion and the work of reconstruct ion all tho more efficient, consistent, cohesive and enduring. In a word, as wo required two years of rough experience to learn how to tear down tho rebellious states, so we have required two years of half-way experi ments to learn how to rebuild them on the new corner stone of liberty nnd eoual rights. I.STlxKvnso To Railroad TitAvn.i.ns. The following rules of the road are bas ed up ui legal decisions and ought to be uuiver.-al'y known. The courts have doeided that applicants for tickets on railroads can W ejcc'ol from the cars if they do not offer the e'xact amount of their faro. Conductors are not. bound to male change. All railroad tickets are good until used, conditions "good for this day only" are of no account. Pas engers who lose tliei? tickets can be eje ;ted :Trom tho ca's unless they purchase a second one.
