You have probably noticed what a great rise
Western Railroad stock took here a few months
since. It went up per taltem, from 72 to 1034, 'he
par being $190, and all in consequence ot an ingen
ous device invented by P. P F. De Grand. Etq ,
and accomplished by the Legislature at the late ass
siou. This rouri cost some seven or eight millions
of dollars, and the stock paid in only amounted to
about four millions. Consequently, a debt was
contracted for the balance oi the fund expended.
This debt is owing to the State, which issued its
scrip for the benefit of the road, and De Grand'a
device was simply for the Legislature to authorise
the company to issue new stock for the amount
annually paid by the company out of its earnings,
into the sinking fund established tor the redemp
tion of the State scrip. This new stock to be sold
at par, and the proceeds to be put into the compa
ny's assets wherewith to make dividends. As the
State owns shares to the amount of one million of
dollars, and would of course get dividends to the
amount of sixty thousand dollars a year, the Legis
lature jumped at the proposition, and gave the re
quisite power at once. The constqaence was that
the Btock became at once a paying six per cent
stock, and arose in price accordingly. Those who
were in the secret, and watched tne operation,
bought shares at the low price, and made a good
deal of money.
The great harvest time for this road is in the
winter, when the navigation of the Hudson is
closed, and the Western produce coming into Al
bany on the New York railroads, comes over the
Western to Boston, and goods lor traders return by
the same route. Last winter was the first that this
business was carried on, owing to the action ot |
the New York Legislature in opening the railroads
of your State for freight, when the canal is closed.
The const quence of this fine movement ot your |
Legislature was the rise of Western railroad stock
from 42 to 72, and, as I have just related, our Le
gislature lest winter, by another fine stroke, pitch
ed it up to an hundred and over. The recent pro
position of the city of Albany to loan 91,000.000
to any company that will build a railroad from New
York to Albany, has, however, put a damper upon
the flaming hopes of our Western railroad folk',
and they are now ready to ease oil'a little in the
price ot their sfock. It can be had to-day tor 101.
If Albany does this thing, she is a naughty city,
and ought to be ashamed of herself, so she had ;
at least our folks think so down east, and they are
not slow to say it. Poor tellowB, they uerer will

neateles for some time, and was over head and eare
in the business. He is now over head and ears in
another element, h iving invented a sub-marine ar
mour, which h?? ???n walk uu the bottom ol
tne sea, and explore the mysteries ot marine life at
his leisure. This he has lound more useful, and 1
hope more profitable business than digging up tbe
foundations ot society nud descending into tne bow
els of community. Your neighbor, Deacon Greely,
used to be a great rourierite, and it he still sticks
to it you had better advise him to give it up and
try the sub-marine busines?. His explorations into
Clay will fit him admirably for this kind of work.
By the way, I once heard a man say ot Greely that
whether he was a four-ear ite or not, he had two
very long ears, .which would make at least tour
common sized human ears. Perhaps he might bring
these assine appendages to a good use in sticking
them together over his head, and making a helmet

ProfitabU Steamboat Route?Capitalists Attention?
A. J. Jewett and thrham Parks?The letter
Consul to Rio.
The spring business is just opening in this sec
tion with good prospects. The ice has left the
glorious old Penobscot, and yesterday the steamer
Charter Oak paid us her first visit for the season.
By the way of steamboats, I will just say to your
New York capitalists and owners of steamboats,
that the route between this place and Boston, is
one of the most maney-making in the United
States, and our people would be much obliged to
them, if they will put on a staunch, fast, and com
modious boat, in opposition to the Charter Oak.
The managers of that concern have become un
popular, >n consequence of exhorbitant rates of
freight, and that don't care a button-spirit, evinced
by her money-catching managers. Last year the
Charter pocketed a cool forty thousand dollars
clear profit. This year business prospects war
rant tne belief in an increased travel, and should
an opposition boat be put on, with proper tare and
charges for freight, her owners would reap a rich
A. O Jewett, the Charge to Peru, has left the

bountifully at the fountain in Lima, as there is a
saying, "that he that drinks thereat will never
leave that aity."

I must give you an account of a political farce
which has just been enacted here. It contains
many useful lessens in philosophy. The last act is
a capital txpoti by each of the characters, of his
own virtue, wit, intelligence, honesty and honor.
Tne plot or farce ia this : two clique? of demo
crats divide the paity in this place; each sets to
work to secure the offices tinder the general go
vernment; each must have the whale; they "keep
shady," mine, undermine, and countermine; they
hold private meetings, write resolutions and let
ters, and send messengers and depntations; first
one ia uppermost, then the other; one clique hav
ing moat power at Court almost gets the Collector
ship, then loses it and gets the Post Office; tha
other clique, then, by a grand coup de main, nets
the Collectorship, which it had almost lost, tdid
loses the Post office which it had got. The Senate
rejects the Collector, and hia clique are left in the
lurch; the Postmaster alipa in quietly-to the en
joyment of a tew hundred a year, but hia friends
are in a " terrible tracteration" that they havn't
got everything. This state of affairs leads to a ge
naral blow up.
First came up S. L. Gardner, the disappointed
applicant for the Collectorship, and brother of the
present Postmaster, with the confession of a peni
tent sinner, in the shape of an affidavit from his
brother's predecessor, by courtesv called" theliuk e,"
in which the aaid Duke sets forth how he was
[ used l?y the Lord and Dayton clt?u?,to keep tha Col
lectorship out of the Gardner clique; how he de
ceived and defrauded in order to effect that object,
undetfpromise that in case of success the L. and D
clique would use their exertions to retain him in
hia position, and how, after accomplishing theii
object by using him, they used him up " ijitirely,'
and got him removed, in order to bai.t the G.
clique with the Post office, and so keep lhem oui
of the Collectorship, which is by far the most im
portant post; how, in short, he, the Duke, had
thwarted all the hopes of one clique, and was now
uttemftirig to thwart all others hopes of thv other.
This volley was fired in a single extia sheet of the
Watchman?it was returned in a double sheet.
This couicined tha affidavit of A. Eddy, oneo.f the
L. and D.'s. in which he sets forth how he and hit
brother, and other parties, tried to get possession ol
the offices, by pretending to g< tup a third party,
independent of the general democratic party, tavor
Ule to the administration?how for this purpose hall
a dt>zeu individuals held a private meeting, toi
which L. and D. wrote certain speeches and resolu
tions?how these speeches nud resolutions were for
warded to Washington, as the proceedings of a
public meeting, and published in the Aladitonian?
now the plotters trembled, lest somebody in oui
quartershotfId see the number of that uaperiu which
they were contained, and blow the affair? and how

Hiverin large numbers, for the purpose of depredation,
and that Major Bell, commanding Fort Washita, had sent
un e xpress to Fort To? son for Iron pa to be iu readiness
to march lor the purpose of checking any outbreak "

boat accidents is recorded in the Cleveland Herald
of the 31st of AprilThe steamer Waterloo left Buffalo
on Saturday morniag, ta company with the steamer ?mi
