that aro dark" and the "tricks that are

xcuse tho course pursuod by our

ill ot this would be that ovt-ry pound
n would be shipped to Philadelphia
than it could bo to Norfolk. Under
;e of affairs, no man could possibly
who had ordinary intelligence, that
ainson, who controlled the Seaboard
uld make terms with such a great cor
i. The Seaboard road would bave to
upon its local patronage, while now
sties of the road show it has in the last
ought to this city and Portsmouth at
000 bales of cotton, which was handled,
id re-shipped by the commission mer
it Norfolk. He'had heard a great deal
scriininatiou in regard to the Seaboard

d raise his hand "and voice against any
•oceedings. He was not present to
the interests ef the road, but to show

lew that our merchants had been able
lish a successful trade along the line of
rth Carolina roads West of Kaleigh,
he Pennsylvania Central would absurb
ng control of the diverging lines which
now terminate in tbis city.
This giant and insidious corporation h»d
used every effort to get control of the North
Carolina Central, but they had so far bee,n
dissappointud, and were sent home with a "flea
be suicidal to Norfolk's interest; for it would
be tho mean, of losing tlie $7-1,000 she has in
vested in the Kaleigh and Gaston road, and
the 130,000 bales of cotton that passed over our
road would be transferred to the roads rutintr. g
North which would be emptied into the lap ol
Philadelphia, and then the commerce and trade
of Norfolk would dwindle down to her lish
carts and oyster-boats.
So tho cotton aud other produce of tho
South would be carried cheaper to Phila
delphia by way of Kichmond, then by
way of Norfolk 1 Burt- the argument!
Bat cotton cau be carried cheaper to Nor
folk if you put a rival in the field against
Moncure Robinson's live These gentle
men all seem to argue from the "stand
still" point. They allow nothing for
increase of busiuess by the growth of
trade. They do not look at all to future
expansion,—when that one little Seaboard
road will uot bo able to do one-tenth cf
the business. Io building railroads we
expect to mako trade for them. Give the
people facilities to get to market and they
will increase their productive forces.
Mako travel iv the South cheap, by direct
•nd uninterrupted lines, and a thou
sand people will pass right through Vir
ginia and become acquainted with us,
where one goes through seme dark earner
of the State now, without learning any
thing about the laud or the people. Give
the Southern coast States railroad commu
nication to the North, and they will
neither entrust their goods nor (heir livis
to tho dangers and delays of the sea. The
shipping business will be transferred lo
the land, and the travel and trado will
bentfit every person and place.in tho
country through which they pa-fc What
we want is to cheapen freights —not so
much for the morchant and producer, as
fur the consumer, who, after all, pays the
freight charges. It matters little to the
planter who raises it, or the merchant who
buys it, or tho manufacturer who makes it
up, how much it costs to carry a bale of
cotton from New Orleans to England—the
consumers—the general public—pay tho
osts; and, therefore, it is the public -
ho are interested iv cheapening tho trans
lortation of all the necessaries of lifo to '

The result of the elections in moro than
iree-fourths of the French departments
fiords a fair indication of tho general suc
ess of the Orleanists, and that party is
onfident that the Count of Paris will be
ving of Frau'ce in a few weeks, the same i
who, in 1848, when a little boy was pro- |
osed to the National Assembly as a com- ,
iromisc, after tho flight of his grandfather, <
jouis Phillippo, as the last chance for the \
monarchy, but he came too late. Ue seems ,
etertnined to be in time on this occasion, j
As an indication of tho popularity of some ;
f the candidates, it may bo mentioned t
hat Thiers, who is the recognised leader
of tho Orleanist party, will represent eigh
een constituencies, Trochu seven, Chan- r
gamier four aud Dufour also four. About
wo hundred candidates were balloted for
n Paris which accounts for the delay in
determining the result of tho elections
there. Returns from somo twenty of the
departments occupied by German forces
are yet to be reported. Tho conservative
republicans hold tho second position in the
Assembly, the Pionap-.rti.ts tho third, and

The opinion at Germau headquarters is,
that peace is near at hand, and there seems

however, tho conquerors continue vigorous

preliminary meeting of the Assembly was j
held at Bordeaux on Monday, three hun

seen Pennsylvania " Bucktails" befor
and is not afraid of them ; but U perfect
willing that they shall do all the go
they can by battdiog WtlhJadalo Virgin
I inflicted upon us during the war. The
j,- 0- l.—We don't care whether the Alexan
dria and Fredericksburg company build a new
road or not. J. C. Southall says they will.
Kelley says they won't. Giva Alexandria and
Fredericksburg company another charter to
r nt them in condition to make this Richmond,
Fredericksburg and I'olomac company reduce
their oppressive rates.
No. 2—Unfair Figiitino.—The conspirators
against the people's rights who oppose the
charter for an independent all rail lino from
Washington to Richmond, show their con
sciousness of a bad cause by the repeated
efforts to delay its consideration even. We
aro sorry to see our delegate conspicuously
prominent in tbis unfair and un-"plucky
mode of warfare.
No. 3.—T00 much temper is shown in the
Legislature about this Alexandria and Frede
ricksburg charter. It is natural for Daniel's
road to fight desperately. Its old fogy notions
are shocked at tho idea of losing its vested
wrongs. But don't get mad. People will
think you l:now you are in the wrong. Wo
think you aro naturally mistaken.
Jlo. _, —The very persons who are now roll
ing up their eyes about foreign influence,
brought Huntington * Co. here, advocated
he charter in the Valley, advocated tho char
er from Alexandria to Fredericksburg, and
re begging now that Congress will take con
rol of the James Iliver canal.
No. s.—Sentiment of the People.—Wo got
out Friday, and every man we met, lawyers,
merchants, Ac., all endorse the course ot the
Nairn on tbo railroad question, "You are
ri.htl" "What is tho matter with Kelly?
'No man with the sense of an oyster shell can
oppose another charter." "All Stafford de
clares she will not vote for any man who op
poses this new charter." A Virginian, not a
native of Fredericksburg, camo across the
street to assure us of his hearty approval of
our views. One of the wealthiest citizens of
Fredericksburg said, "1 hope you will suc
ceed. We showed him llerndon's bill. He
said, "That's tho thing we want!"
No. G—That Old Staoe Line.—Our readers
have either seen or heard of the old "nine
miles" of staging from Fredericksburg to the
Potomac. What that road was in its day as a
cause for delay, high price of travel, ke., this
little 75 mile road from Richmond to the
Potomac resembles now.
