WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 19 1866.
Trni??|?ort*tlow? rhnrf?, Ac., on Rn||.
ronda.
Mr. Balpwik laid before the House the
following Jotter from Mr. Whitcomb, su.
peilntendent ot' the Central railroad, with
this endorsement upon it: 44 Thin com
munication, which comes from one of the
most intelligent and reliable railroad of
ficers in Virginia, is respectfully sub.
r ttrd for tho consideration of the Com
mittee on Koads," &c.:
Eicbmokd, December 18, 1S66.
Thepre*ent railroad law of Virginia la de
j. . nve. and it is a work well worthy of your
, rt^rts to remodel it. Read over its provisions
to toll* and compare the charge* which th*
r.ipanx - make, and yon w ill set- the diiticulty.
While eight cent* per ton per mile is suf
t lent for lonf distances, it is not enough for
he short, while th* chargeforstorage allowed
.? altogether indefinite. The law should com ?
in I nil the companies in the State In which
^ *! e has an luter< *t to adopt a uniform fla'N*
li< ationon their freight tariff*. Their freight
:t: iffs should be governed a* follows, namely :
' A regular ? tan* for handling and storing each
k class, and to this a regular charge for trans*
?* p>t tation should Im> added /?"' >"*? Per mi,e
The maximum rate* should be fixed by law,
and 1 think it fully as important to fix the
minimum rate. Which is the mere cost of
carriage.
At present tfye minimum rate is very liigh,
owing to tin small amount of produce and
merchandise to be carried. It proba by amounts
on any road tr. th'* State to lour cents per ton
per mile?that is to say, the whole tonnage
actually carried should bear this charge to pay
exjM?n>f >? althouKh a larger amount might be
carried at a lower cost, and articles which
would not be:?r fonr cents j?er ton per mile
might be carried at a little over two cent*.
When the tariffs are fixed, all companies
should be compelled to allow their cars to be
used quo :her roads of the same gauge at a
fi\nl |?> lit n, the company using the cars to
be resjs -.-ible for damages, and no company
t?. be allowed to charge for handling which it
does not do : that is, freight passing from one
rorx.l to another should be charged by each
rorwijV. :th only one-half the rate for handling,
nt il ii : (u-.- - over a third road, the interme
M diate road must make no charge. Each
road tii to be allowed to fix its own tariff ou the
principle Mated : that is. by a combination of
f^nrges for handling, which are constant for
,, all distances, and the rate for transportation,
wliich vari'-s according to the distance, and of
co. rse between the maximum and minimum
rate* established. Thin WjiiM abolish thscrimi
mth tin favor of oi>y one "ity.
If now it is necessary to reduce the rate* to
compete for through tonnage, let it be done by
deducting a pTcnUtit*, say ten percent, toone
point, twenty to another, &c. ; hut these de
k due lions to these points without the State fo
ot* available to town* and citir* in Virginia
also? ih* t is. for instance, if it i- necessary to
reduce twenty percent, to carry freight from
New York to Memphis, the Norfolk merchant
should uet the bent-fit of the twenty per cent,
as well as the New York merchant. On all
cla*s?*s carried by mail train, the companies
should be allowed to charge fifty per cent, ad
ditional. No variation to be made from pub
lished freight t ariii's, under penalty, unless
said variation be m ule general, so that all
persons may nvjul themselves of it.
Free ticket t. except for charity, should be
abolislu 1 : ami il done, perhaps the maximum
rate allowed for p icseng''r far?* migh! be low
ered. It may be well to allow yearly tickets
to be sold at a lov; pi n My opinion is that
there should be absolutely no free tickets, ex
cept for charity and to person* engaged in
Opera'ing the road, ami n list Of those given
should Ik? made and reported under oath. The
present system tends <> corruption.
It may bi* well to eonibinc, say, the presi
dents oi the several companies, in o a general
"f i>ir> < to carry out this scheme,
which 1 think . ould make our roads profita
ble. Do away with local discriminations;
rt olish the discrimination in favor Of north
ern cities and large operators, and enable per
sons tti send prod i u* and goods anywhere
throughout the State, With a thronjrh receipt,
wherever interest may de-ire. Tin* or some
similar plan should be adopted. We ha\e no
s\ "em it"
* The :tl i? thrown out for your considera
tion. and i - of ?"urse not for publication. I
ha v ?? no time to put the pi n in readable slnpe
but 1 am willing toexplain more fully before
a House or Senate committee.

States to get no Land. ? We expressed
t he opinion ilay before yesterday that
South Carolina would not be allowed to
accept the land donated by Congress to the
various States lor school purposes. On
that very day in the House of Represen
tatives the following resolution was passed :
Whereas, on the 3d day of April, 18tJG,
by the authority and direction of thi^ Pre
sident of the United States, agricultural col
lege scrip covering nearly 270,000 acres, was
i?ued and delivered t<> the State of North
Carolina under the act of Congress of July
lsf?2, providing for agricultural colleges;
and whereas by the same authority the
General Land office is now preparing to
iVue scrip in like mauuer to the States of
Virginia, Georgia, and Mississippi ; and
whereas said action of the President takes
!<>r granted t l:at said States are restored to
their proper constitutional relations to the
Union, and art: to be recognized in all re
spects as entitled to the rights of the other
Slates of the Union, which Congress alone
can rightfully determine. Therefore,
Jiesolwd by the Stunt? ami House of Jie
jiresentativ ? of th> United States, That the
further issue and delivery of such scrip to
any of the > el unrepresented States lately
in rebellion against the United States, or
the acceptance of such scrip, or any here,
tofore issued by the registers or receivers
of any of the land offices of said States,
be, and the same is hereby prohibited until
said State*, shall be fully restored to their
lights a.s States by Congress.
Mori: Deviltry.? On Monday, in the
House of Representatives, Mr. McKee, of
Kentucky, introduced a bill to protect
loyal persons in States lately in rebellion,
including Maryland, Kentucky, I Mis
souri.
The bill provides that citizens who have
remained loyal during the rebellion, and
who are domiciled within either of the said
States, may suo tor any cause whatever in
the United States Circuit Court for the
State in which said person may be thus
domiciled, and may, at any time during
the pendency of a suit, and three months
utter a judgment shall have been rendered,
have the said suit removed to the next
term of the United States Circuit Court.
It also provides, that for all crimes com
mitted against persons who shall have re
mained loyal during the rebellion, the of
fender shall be liable to indictment and
^rial in the United States Circuit Court ; j
and all such criminal cases shall be re- '
movable like civil cases from the State to
the l ulled States Circuit Courts.
Tub Upper C orxi ky. ? A gentleman who j
has just returned from Culpeper, Kappa- 1
bannock, Madison, and Orange, reports t hi 1
wheat crop an looking admirably, and a
large breadth heeded. The com crop b j
immense, most ot* it still standing in the
Held, and the farmer* unable to gather, from
u scarcity of labor.
In Madison and Rappahannock small fac
tories fur ploughs, wagons, and furniture,
are springing up every live miles, and buM

? Frkedmkn'8 Bcrf.au Schools.? ^The eda.
cation of frecdmen <ind refngeen nnder the
superintendence of the commissioner has
been carried on vigorously during the your.
The immediate patronage and fnnda for
this work have hecn mainly from the he.
nevolent associations of the North, while
the bureau has given it protection, fur.
nished transportation for teachers, books,
and clothing, and has also supplied school
buildings where it was possible and kept
them in repair. Each bureau department,
embracing oue State or more, has at its
headquarters a superintendent of educa
tion, giving his whole time to its details,
and reporting monthly to the commissioner.
All ofllcers are directed to interest them,
selves in these schools, and their entire or
ganization, though complicated, is now be
coming complete and efficient.
The results are full of encouragement.
There were, at the close of the last school
term, in the thirteen States lately in rebel
lion, and including Kentucky, Maryland,
ami tho District of Columbia, 975 regular
organized schools, 1,-105 teachers, 90,778
pupils.
This does not include many schools not
regularly reported, especially night schools,
and mine of the large number of private
and Sabbath schools now in operation. 1
With great care in gathering information, 1
we estimate that there are now 150,000
frecdmen and their children who are earn
estly occupied in the study of books.
There are also a considerable number of
schools for refugee white children, and the '
formation of these is everywhere encour- j
aged. ? (Jeneral Howard's li'port.

A Qckstiox of Makriaoe ? In the Or
phan's Court on Saturday, before Judge
| Purcell, the case of I)r. G. W. Woollev j
j v?rs>is Henry Whitall, executor of the ,
j estate of Martha K. Woollev, deceased, j
1 was argued at length. It seems that I)r. j
Woollev and Martha R. Woollcy some
years ago made a written agreement in the
I State of New York to live together as man
and wife. They moved to this city a few
years since, ami about four months ago Mrs. ,
j Woollev died. She bequeathed her per- '
sonal effects to her sister, and tho Doctor
protested against the execution of the will
on the ground that she had no legal right
to dispose of her property in this manner.
The defendant claims that they were never
i legally married, and in addition, that the
I Doctor had a wife at the time the agree
i ment was made between him and the dc
j ceased. The court, however, rejected the
! latter statement, as it was not contained
, in the answer of the respondent. The case
j now rests on the legality of the marriage
; relation. According to the laws of New
: York, where the agreement was made, tho
marriage is valid. Judge Purcell will
give his decision to-morrow. Frederick
Scmidt for petitioner, R. S. Jackson for
respondent. ? Xationaf Intflliyncer, 17//*.
llrrrAi.o, Nkw York, vs. Richmond,
Virginia. ? In the opera of "The Doctor
of Alcantara," says the Buffalo f'oinii?rci(d
Adwrtu>ert Miss Kichings, Mrs. Scguin, and
; Mrs. Boudinot were all very good. Mrs.
? Seguin't* voice and singing were especially
i admired.
Mr. Wylie sings with gr<at taste and
g?>od style. His voice, uufortnnatcly, is
I weak, hut that is no fault. Ho is an ex
j eelleut actor, and would make his mark as j
i a comedian. Mr. Seguin and Mr. Peakes
: were both capital in their respective parts; 1
j and, by 1 lie by, what a tine bass voice Mr.
j Peakes has.
We but echo the "general voice*' when j
I we say that a repetition of 44 The Doctor ;
of Alcantara " is absolutely demanded.
In Richmond this opera was condemned,
nnn.con. Mr. Wvlic met the same fate.
Mrs. Seguin was popular, but never serious
ly compared with Miss Riching:>. Peakes
was appreciated by a few knowing ones. J
Bufiulo is evidently in the 44 backwoods." I
Mr. Davis ? Scrratt. ? Our Fortress!
Monroe correspondent says that Jeff. Davis !
is highly gratified at the arrest of John If. i
j Surratt. He sees his way to a full proof
j of his innocence, it is asserted, through
Surratt's testimony, and, even if the cap
| t'.ired fugitive should make the charges
! against Davis that it is rumored he will, !
j the latter expresses himself fully able to,
i disprove them. Unless some unexpected |
{ turn of events occurs, growing possibly i
i out of the Surratt trial, Davis does not ex J
' pect that his case will come up before next i
spring. ? New York Herald.
And Bennett has the grace to add that 1
it is simply impossible that Mr. Davisshould
| have had any hand in the assassination of !
! Mr. Lincoln.
The Proposed Territorial Govern- i
j MENTS FOR THE SOUTHERN' STATKS.? It is !
j confidently asserted by sout'iern men that |
j the Territorial bill now before Congress j
1 will never be enforced by the President if
j it should be passed. Not one of them be- 1
i lieve in the ri^ht of Congress, or any other
j body or power, to destroy a sovereignty. !
? This is the ground assumed by the Presi- 1
. dent. Hence the confidence of the people ,
1 interested. ? Herald.
The Herald adds that it is the " poor !
| whites," and not the 44 governing class,"
| who are so hostile to the amendment*
Scihutt.? The trial of John II. Snrratt
will probably make public two important
portions of the evidence on the conspiracy
: trial. One is the journal of J. Wilkes
Booth, in whi ii the last entry was made a
few hours prior to his death, and which
was taken frota his pocket, but has thus
j far been kept secret. The other is a con
fession made by Payne to a general ofliccr
of volunteers, just prior to his execution,
to which he declared that the plot was for
the abduction of President Lincoln, and
I hat it was only a few hours prior to the
assassination that Booth ordered them to
j commit murder, they having repeatedly
failed in their attempts at abduction. ? Xevc

Hitler Again*. ? Mr. II. C. Eno has pub. 1
lished an amusing lithograph caricaturing
Dr. Butler as " Major- General Silver
spoon " on horseback, in full uniform, with
all the stock and fixtures of a hippo-thea
trical pawnbroker's shop. The picture is
faulty in two respects; it gives the Doctor
too youthful and amiable a look, and he
exhibits but six spoons, two forks, and one
I silver pitcher? which is a contemptible in
ventory of the stock in Butler's shop, and
a ridiculously small estimate of the Doe
tor's efforts to 4k suppress the rebellion " in

use your Bitters I scarcely used one bottle when
1 felt relief, and from the u?e of the BlUera. though
nearly oixt* s.>v?n year* of a^e, f..?l the same ? n
?rgyand vivacity and cheerful rpirtta of a b<>y uf

cordial, and aathev are prepir- o with unr' lrntr >?
dienta And good old Bourbon whl-ky. Iians?fely
