IV on an uie euiei iiioriiiiguiare.s ot uie
country during the past twelve years. we
are cominccd that the chaiiees of arriving
at one'? de.-tination in accordance with the
programnie .-et forth in the publi.-hed time
tables have been diminished, rather than
incrcased, duriug that period. The trav
elier who takesa througli ticket from New
York to St. Louis has a possibility of de
tention :it I'ittsburg, whieh amounts to a
probability at Coluinbiis or Indianapolis.
The rate of speed on exprcss trains has not
been increased, (on some roads it has
been slightly lesscncd,) the margin of time
allowed for delays would seein to be am
plc, and the fact of irregularity must spring
from a defective systeni of mauagement.
All that we have said on this point will
apply with etpial force (o the tpie.ition of
saf'ety. Ve have many roads whcreon
the annual losses from accidents amount
to a sum whieh, applieil to the protection
and proper organizatiou of the road, would
render accidents veiy rare. Our variable
cliiuatc and extrcmes of temperature are
physical disadvantages, it is true ; but
these exist to a greater extent in Rus?ia.
and yet on thc road from St. 1'ctersburg
to Ioscow, i'our hundred miles in length,
and opened to travel in 1852, the life of a
single passenger has not thus far been sac
riliced ! On this road there are thirtv
three station? : the shortesL stoppage is
five niinutes, and the longest (at Tver, for
meals), forty-five minutes ; the whole
journey, including stoppages, is made in
exactly twenty hours. We do not com-

bounu to estaoiisn a scneduie ot running
time upon whieh the travelling public
may dcpend, with a tolerable certainty of
its coiTectness. In proportion as they ap
proach a system whieh will avoid irregu

life.

ganization retuired by the interests of the
travelling public, tliere will be a swift re
turn to it for the investinent. Whichever
inain line of travel bctween the East and

When we spcak of the manifold con
venienccs of Europcan travel, we are lold
to sec our own country as well, to cncour
age home enterprise, enjoy home sccnery,
aud make ourselves familiar with our own
great store of resotirees. This is all vcry
well, and the sense of novelty will carry
you once over the ground ; but we doubt
wlielher many would repeat a jourhey in
Ameriea for pure pletisure. Ujion most
of our thoroughfares, travel is siniply an
unwelcome necessity. There is one car
upon the Boston and Fall River Koad,
whercin, by contrast, it becomcs a delight :
for two hours you enjoy air, light and
conifort, then the old bore takes you up
again.
Jfwe could detcct any gcneral indica
tion of an improveinent in these matters,
wc might forbear complaint. 3iut in our
railroads, as in our hotels, we lind deteri
oration r.ithcr than improveinent. This is
owing to the great increase of travel and
traliic, without a corrasponding increase
in thc acconnnodations to meet it. When
all the hotels are sure to be filled to the
extent of their capacity, rivalry ceases,
and the public, happy in being accouuno
lated at all, meekly acccpts whatever is
set beforc it. The proprietor, who makes
from one hundred thousand to half a mil
lion dollars per .annum, becomes sublimely
iiHlitferent to the comfort of his guests ;
and the railroad whicli employs all its
