"The Last Link."
Very many years ago there wn? a cele
bration upon the Potomac of tho comple
tion of 44 the last link'*??. e., the finish
ing of tho railroad lino from Fredericks
burg to Acquia creok. A number of gen
tlemen from Richmond met on the shore of
the Potomac a like number from Washing
ton, and all assembled in tho fincly-doeo
rated saloon of tho stcamor and enjoyed a
repast characteristic of the hospitality and
fine tasto of Mr. Monci'RE Robinson, then
the President of tho line. Speeches full
of fine scntimont and wit were made, and
Mathew St. Clair Clark and John S.
Skinner, two of the best story-tellers then
in the world, made the sides of all present
sore for a month with laughter at their
capital fun. Some of the finest gentlemen
and best wits of the day were present, and
every one who was there felt that one of
the happiest things in this life would be
the celebration of a 44 last liuk" oneo a
Yot that 44la8t link" waB a misnomer.
It was really no 44 last link " except as be
tween Richmond and the waves of the
Potomac. There was another link, 6f fur
more importance, left to posterity to build,
and that was the link between Richmond
and Washington. Such was tho pressing
importance of that link that the wonder is
that it was not completed while yet the
44 hearts of gold " who celebrated tho 44 last
link " to Aquia creek were all living and
full of geniality and activity. But, strange
to say, that other link is still to complete,
when many of the choice spirits who
tuen flourished in health and hope are
sleeping in the grave. Such is the unac
countable apathy that has prevailed in
The last link in the railroad live from
Richmond to Washington is only forty
eight miles long. It is of the greatest mo
ment that it should be built. The best in
terests of Virginia demand it, and there
should be no delay about it.
The first charter granted for building a
road on the forty-eight-mile gap hoe ex
pired ; aud now, as we have stated, its ex
tension iB asked for; a thing Dover here
tofore refused in case of a railroad charter.
Ten mile6 of the road have been graded,
and are ready to receive the rails, and the
company is now ready, if the Legielature
renews the charter, to build it at once. We
have soen letters which render it, in onr
opinion, certain that the road will be built
in a very 6hort time. The means for this
Some years after tho old charter was
granted the Legislature, under assurances
that the company organized under it -would
not attempt to go on with the work, granted a
new charter to other corporators. But the
old company now show not only a desire
but the ability to finish the important work
they have begun. Tho revival of their
charter is most reasonable and just. Cer
tainly it is not more unreasonable that
their charter Bliould be extended than that
another charter should have been granted
after their's had, and after they had done
a good deal of work on their road. On the
contrary, it is far more just that their
charter Bhould be extended than that a
eharter upon their line should have been
granted after theirs. Tho granting of a
charter carries with it vested rights, which
it is an act of infidelity in a Legislature to
interrupt by the granting of another.
The failure to build tbia real " Inst link"
before this day is a matter of amazement.
It is a matter of great public necessity, and
the company now ready to build it ought
to be allowed to do so without the slightest
hesitation on the part of tho Legislature.
There is no justice in any rivalry to their
It is impossible to rite to the proper ele
vation of admiration for the rare ami
ability of the Radicals in Richmond. They
are doves, and the Journal otlico is the
dove-cote 1 Indeed, tho route to Paradise
Is through that establishment. The way
armed blacks and whites rebelling against
the State are metamorphosed into humble,
peace-loving saints, seeking shelter and
benediction at the liandB of tho venerable
Virginia, throws miracles into tho shade,
Oh, sweet-tempered, angelic Radicals! Whc
does not rejoico that he lives in a day thai
produces such Christian saints!
Jakes River and Kanawha Canal.?
The United States Senate Committee of Com
merce, our readers will be gratified to see,
have determined to report in favor of direct
ing the Secretary of War to cause a survey
of the route for the extension of the James
River and Kanawha canal to the Ohio.
This step, of course, uccording to the usage*
of Congress, is a condition precedent to de
riding the question of an appropriation to a
proposed work, 'lhe friends of this great
work are not afraid of putting it to the test.
Forney is a ferocious fellow. He doesn't
like these piping times of peace, llo seizes
upon every report of southern outrages,
and gnashes his teeth and flourishes his
sword as though be would slay or drive
every southerner into the sea. He is a ter
rible man. In his^two papers" yesterday
he is savage. He calls upon the Govern
ment to pitch in. "if is for the Govern
" ment, in all its departments, to show its
"power," says he. Could there be any
thing more frightful f He will alarm poor
people into fearful spasms if he continues
to make these horrible faces at the South.
Gan't Mr. Bkbgh come down to the capital
and soothe Forney.
Judges' Salaries and Duties.?-Corre
spondents are sending us much comment
upon these themes, for which, in the
crowded state of out columns, wc arc una
ble to make room. There is groat contra
riety of opinion expressed. Even on the
question of salaries there is a wide differ
ence. Some say the minimum salary for
oounty judge should be $1,000, and one man
thinks that $500 should be the maximum.
We would readily give the views of these
gentlemen if we could; but as we cannot,
we sr? ?onsoled by the reflection that the
Legislature understands the subject pretty
well, and will not go far wrong.
Cubioub Mistakes.?Yesterday's Dis
patch made us say that the people of Vir
ginia in ** accepting the situation" did so

The Bazar Book of Decorum. The Care
! of the Person, Manners, Etiquette, and
Ceremonials. New York: Harper & ,
This is a pretentious book, treating not
only of " manners," &c., but their proper
connection with health, morals, and good
taste. It is gotten up in handsome etylo
by the Harpers, who have not failed to
give an incidental puff to one of their pe
riodicals by putting, without much taste, the '
word "Bazar'' into the title?some of the .
chapters of the book having nppeared in i

A brief and convenient hook of reference, j
The author is an industrious collector of
useful information of a practical nature,
especially in the way of biography. He
gave to the world an excellent work in
his lives of the Stephen sons. We dielike

Assured that In the selection and negotiation of
superior Railroad Loans we are meeting a great,
public want and rendering a valuable service both ,
to the holders of capital and to those great national
^Wbrks of Internal Improvement, whose Intrinsic
merit and substantial character entitle them to the
use of capital and the confidence of Investors, wo
now offer with special confidence and satisfaction
FIRST MORTGAGE BONDS
CHESAPEAKE AND OHIO RAILROAD
The Chosapeake and Ohio Railroad, connecting
the Atlantic coast and the magnificent harbors of
the Chesapeake bay with the Ohio river at a point
of reliable navigation, and thus, with the entire
railroad system and water transportation of the
great West and Southwest, FORMS THE ADDI
TIONAL EAST AND WEST TRUNK LINE, so
Imperatively demandodfor the accommodation of
tbo Immense and rapidly-growing transportation
between tho Atlantic seaboard and Europe on the
one hand, and the great producing regions of the
Ohio and Mississippi valleys on the other.
The Importance of this road as a new outlet
from the West to the sea magnifies it into one of
national consequence, aud insures to it an exten
sive through traffic from the day of Its comple
tion, while in the development of the oxtensive
agricultural and mineral resources of Virginia
and West Virginia It possesses along its own Hue
the cdeuients of a largo and profitable local busl
Thus the proaf interests, both general and local,
which demand the completion or the Chesapeake
and Ohio railroad to the Ohio river afford the
purest guarantee of Its success and value, and
render It the most Important and substantial rail
road enterprise now In progress In this country.
Its superiority as an East and West rente, and
the promise of an Immense and profitable trade
awaiting Its completion, have drawn to It the at
tention and co-operation of prominent capitalists
and railroad men of tills city of sound Judgment
and known Integrity, whoso connection with It,
together with that of eminent citizens and business
men of Virginia and West Virginia.
INSURES AN ENERGETIC, HONORABLE,
The road is complete! and In operation from
Richmond to the celebrated White Sulphur Springs
of West Virginia, 227 in lies, and thero remain but
200 miles (now partially constructed) to be com
pleted to carry It to the proposed terminus on the
Ohio river at or near tin: mouth of the Big Sandy
river, 130 miles above Cincinnati, and 330miles
Lines arc now projected or In progress through
Ohio and K? utucky to this polut, which will con
nect tlio Chesapeake and Ohio with the entire rail
road systems of the West and Southwest, and with
the Paclfl-: railroad.
Its valuable franchises and superior advantages
will place the CHESAPEAKE AND OHIO
RAILROAD COMPANY among the richest and
most powerful and trustworthy corporations of
the country: and there exists present value, In
completed road and work done, equal to the entire
umount of t.?e mortgage.
The details of the loan have been arranged with
special reference to the wants of all classesof In
vestors, and combine the various features of con
veulcncc, safety, and protection against loss or
The Bonds are In denominations of
81,000, SO00, and 8100.
They will bo Issued as Coupon Bonds, payable
to bearer, and may be held In that form ; or
The Bond may be registered In the name of the
owner, with the coupons remaining payable to
bearer attached, the principal being then transfer
able only on the books of the company, unless re
assigned to bearer; or
The Coupons may be detached and cancelled, the
Bond made a permanent Registered Bond, trans
ferable only on the books of tlio Company, and
the Interest made payable only to the registered

ed," should be so designated by correspondents In
specifying the class of Bonds desired.
They have thirty yean to ran from January 15,
1870, with Interest at six per cent, per annum from
November 1, 1369. Principal aud interest paya
ble In gold In the city of New York.
The Interest Is payable In May and November
that It may take the placo of that of the earlier
Issues of Five-Twenties, and suit the convenience
of our friends who already hold Central and West
ern Pacific bonds, with Interest payable In Janu
ary and July, and who may desire, In making ad
ditional Investments, to have their Interest re
ceivable at different seasons of the year.
The loan Is becured by a mortgage upon the en
tire Hue of road from Richmond to the Ohio river,
with the equipment aud ull other property and
appurtenances connected therewith.
A sinking fund of $100,000 per annum Is provided
for the redemption of the bonds, to take effect on?
year after the completion of the road.
The mortgage Is for $15,000,000, of which $t,W0,?
000 will be reserved and held in trust for there
demptlon of outstanding bonds of tho Virginia
Central Railroad Company, now merged In the
Chesapeake and Ohio.
Of the remaining $13,000,000, a sufficient amount
will bo sold to com plete the road to the Ohio river,
perfect and Improve the portion now In operation,
and thorouglily equip the whole for a largo and
The present price Is 90 and accrued Interest.
