THE HAILY PISPATgH.
t)F.OKMBF.R3,^ YORK KIVKR RAILROAD Pv reference to the map, it will be seen that the proposed Railroad to York River will command the trade of New Kent, Gloucester, York, James City, King William, King and <Jueen, and other neighboring counties. Ac cording to the census of 18*0, ( w0 have not been able to obtain access to the la«t cen sus) the production of wheat in Gloucester WM 56,383 bushel.*, oats til,7*s, corn 306,564 bushels ; value of the products ol the. dairy, #17,297 ; New Kent, wheat 128,478 bushels; eats, 99,777 bu.-hels: corn. 139,784 bushels; dames City, wheat, 17,241 bushels; oats, 34,- 765; corn," 86,500; Kins William, wheat, 58,- *24 bushels ; oats, 45,149; corn, 350,370. Va lue of productions of dairy, #17.173. King and Queen, wheat, 401,3*6 bushels; oats, 26,- 212; corn, 34:1,3*4; value of productions of dairv, #12,051. Of course these productions have greatly increased since 1840, and, it they make so respectable a show, e\ cu when deprived of tho stimulus to production which railroads afford, what may we not expect when a convenient and speedy avenue to market is brought to their own doors ? At , this time, the trade of tins region of country i goes to Baltimore. But who can doubt that, i i>" a railroad is built to the York, tho irfrmers 1 of that region will seek a market where they 1 can get better prices, and a market within two hours' ride of them, iu preference to the present long and circuitous route down the York and up the stormy waters of the Chesa peake Bay to Baltimore. The whole region bordering on the York, i« tributaries, and the Chesapeake, would feel the stimulating iufiueaces of the pro posed improvement, and new life and activi ty be awakened on sea and shore. The beau tiiul waters of the York, now so silent and almost solitary, would be disturbed by the prows of a busy fleet of sailing vessels and steamers. Indeed, it is more than probable that we should soon have a line of steamers between the Eastern shore of Virginia and the terminus of tho York River Railroad, se curing to this city the valuable trade of those productive counties. This portion of Virgi nia, though but little known, is in reality one of the most thriving and productive Agricul tural regions of tho whole State. Few of our citizens have any idea of the amount of trade that is carried on thereat the present time.— Aocording to a late statement of the Re gister of the U. S. Treasury, the permauent tonnage of Northampton and Accomac, amounted to 5,885 tons, nearly as great as the tonnage of Richmond. It mu«t be a large amount of trade which requires so large an amount of tonnage for its accommodation.— An intelligent gentleman of Accomac, who has had access to the List census returns, and is well acquainted with the resources and ca pacities of his region, informs us that Acco mac, though falling far below many other counties in arable area, produces more corn than any other county in Virginia, with the single exception of Albemarle; —the number of bushels annually produced in Accomac 761,636, and in Albemarle, 798,355. — The quantity of acres of land in farms in ' Accomac, is only 22:!,733; in Albemarle, 389,- 621. The aggregate annual production of corn, adds our informant, in Accomac and Northampton, (which together contain a less quantity of land in farms than does the coun ty of Albemarle,} amounts to 1,126,603 bush els. The oat crop of Accomac, according to the census of 1840, was 453,137, (larger than any county of the State.) The annual oat crop of Accomac and Northampton is upward of 600,000 bushel?. According to the same cen sus, the annual production of sweet potatoes in Accomac was 113,396 bus'ls. Great success has attended the culture of the sweet potato, of late years, and the annual average value of the product is now estimated at about 8700 per acre. We cannot see why the whole-of the valuable trade of the Eastern Shore should be carried to cities beyond the limits of Virginia, and far more distant than our own. We can at least command a very considerable portion of it by the construc tion of the improvement which we advo cate. Another result, which to many may seem of little importance, but to which cannot but attach great value, would follow the con struetion of the York River Railroad. It would bring us iut« direct proximity with the -£Teat fish aud oyster region of Virginia. In high price of living in our eitv, the intro duction, upon an extensive scale and at a low price, oi the most delightful ti<h in the world l'resh from their native element, is a deside ratum not to be overlooked. The present mode of supplying our fish and oyster mar ket is tedious and unsatisfactory. The fish, after being caught, and sometimes kept over night, come up in the steamer from Norfolk, and after being k. pt here another night, are exposed for sale the next morning. It is true that they are kept in ice; but were the rail- road constructed to the York, our people would be able to use fish ..f all kinds, with out the necessity of ice for preserving them, as freely as if the York river Ho wed at our own doors. Two hours' ride from tLe sea board would fill our markets to overflowing jvitb the best fish and oysters iu thts world, just taken from the briny flood, We earnestly hope that our community will, one and all, give a helping hand to the York River Railroad. It is a railroad which ought to be constructed, and that at once.— There is no other railroad in the State ot more importance to our city. There is none •which can bo effectually as this protect its interests from unfriendly efforts to overthrow and crush it. "TIIE TRADE JOURNAL." TRICKS or ABOLITIONISM. We desire to pttt the people of the South upon their guard against a large monthly ad vertising sheet, published in Philadelphia, called "The Trade Journal," designed for universal distribution among the commercial classes of all sections of the country, includ ing the South, and which is furnished to 6ub »cribers at the low price of 25 cents a year. On the sixth page of the issue for Nov. 21st, is an editorial article, filled with the rankest slang of abolition. He following extract is a specimen s "Tba i»w. of nations recognize no right for the •lave—b« is paoed by as goods and chattel.*, whilo the powers that becbaat their peans of fre<d«ta in word* of falsehood aad Inn'.L But courage, ye en slaved aad dows-troddenCourage!

On looking at the terms, we gee that "The Trade Journal" has a "Northern and East era" and a "Southern and Western edition.'' The above article munt have been intended for a Northern latitude. Twenty-five cent?, the price of subscription, seems a small sum, but Southern men can hardly afford to pay that for an incendiary torch to be put under their own throshhold*. •Off."—A Paris correspondent of one of the New York papers, remarks that the names of most of the Russian Generals on the Danube, end in a termination highly appropriate to their military move ments. Lkxincton and Bio Sand* Railroad.—We ]oarn from the Guyandotte Herald that the ceremo ny of "breaking ground" on the Lexington anil 1513 Sandy Railroad, on the 18th of November, at Catlettslurg, was a joyful occasion. Col. Gray made an eloquent speech on behalf of Virginia and sustained the credit of the Old Dominion in an able manner. I'resident Appcrson threw the first shovel-full of earth, and was followed by other?, after which the ladies were invited to participate in l h<t ceremony, and we are glad to pcrceive that they were led off by Mrs. Buffington, a daughter of Virginia. but not least, the editors were called upon to display their *kill with "the shovel and the hoe," which they did with much zeal and animation. Thus has commenced a work of grrat importance to Virginia as well aa Kentucky, the truits of which will be developed in due time. Anniversary of St. Andrew's Society.—The Petersburg Eiprt-t>s gives a detailed account of the anniversary celebration of the members oi "St. An drew's Society" in that city on Wednesday last. The procession formed at the Institute on Union street, and preceded 1 y the Armory Brase Band, ot Richmond, marched to the Bollingbrook Hotel, where a magnificent supper had been prepared by Col Gilliam, and to which the company did ample justice. -Music, song, wit and sentiment, occupied the time subsequent to the feast, until the "wee hours" of morning, when the party broke up in the utmost gocd humor. A Scotch piper, dressed in full Highland costume, added much to the interest and merriment of the festival. We learn from yesterday's Enquirer that Governor Johnson i* at present absent from the city, on a vis. it to his late home in Harrison county,' where, we regret to learn, Mrs. Johnson lies iu a Tery critical state of health. The Governor has been absent about three weeks, and the cause ot his absence i 8 of such a character as to make the precise time of his return uncertain. His forthcoming message reached this city yesterday through the hands of Mr. English, his son-in-law. (The message will make about four columns of the Enquirer.] Macacley.—The Washington Union contradicts' on the authority of au eminent Loudon physician, the story, that Macauley, the historian, is losing his memory and intellect by the use of opium.— The physician writes that Macauley's general health Is better, and his iutellect is what it has ever been.
