What might he Done. BY CI1AULES MACKAY. What might be done, if rnen were wise What glorious deeds, my suffering brother, Would ihey unite, In love and right, And cease their scorn of one another! -Oppression's heart might be imbued With kindling drops of loving kindness, And knowledge pour, From shore to shore, Light on the eyes of mental blindness. All slavery, warfare, lies, and wrongs, All vice and crime might die together; And wine and corn, To each man born, Be free as warmth in summer's weather. The meanest wretch that ever trod, The deepest sunk in guilt and sorrow, Might stand erect, In self respect, And shun the teeming world to-morrow. What might be done 1 This might be done, And more than this, my suffering brother, More than the tongue, Ever said or sung, If men were wise and loved each other. Interesting Statistics. The X. Y. Daily Times, last week con taned a large and valuable table, show ing the number of the white population of several States classified by ages. By this it appears that in the State of Penn sylvania, when the census was taken, the white population was of the following classification of ages: Under one year 31,929 males and 31,017 females; be tween one and five years, 139,2GS males; and 135,990 females; between five and ten years 157,099 males and 154,424 fe males ; between ten and fifteen, 133,633 males and 123,253 females; between fif teen and twenty, 110,773 males and 124, 4S3 females; between twenty and thirty, 209,433 males and 206,801 females; be tween thirty and forty, 144,049 males Tind 133,072 females; between forty and fifty, 97,553 males and 59,451 females; ! between fifty and sixty 70632 males and gainst being stuffed with improper food 55,919 females; between sixty and seven- j vhile the nourishment nature has provi ty, 31,813 males and 32,224 females; be- ded is withheld from us, is.a most out tween seventy and eighty, 15,183 males ragcou3 slander upon our tempers, and 13,569 females; between eighty and ; Resolved, That in consequence of these ninety, 3344 males, and 4035 females; 1 and many other abuses to which we are between ninety and one hundred, 330 ! subjected, most of us become sickly, and males and 406 females; of one hundred ' about half our number die before we are and upwards, 20 males and 31 females; : old enough to take care of ourselves, age unknown, 9G4 males and 446 females; j Resolved, That our cry shall be "War, total 1,142,734 males and 1,115,426 fe- war," and not "Peace, peace," until our males.

At this period thc Legislative as well as the Executive proceedings of the Sen- ;ate were awaJs transacted in secret ses sion, and the public knew of the procee dings of that branch of Government only i from its messages to the other House an- j nouncing its decisions, it oceanic evi dent, however, that, in practice, all re ponsibility to the constitution under such circumstances was ideal; but it was not until the 20th of February, 1794, after a considerable struggle, that tbe Senate 1 came to a resolution that its legislative , proceedings should, after the end of that session, be public, and that gallaries should be provided for the accommoda tion of auditors. On this question we find the yeas and nays registered, nine teen members 'having voted for it and eight against it.

Clark, James Blair, James Ililes, George Titman, Adam Wand ling, Jr., and the Warren Rail Road Company, Defendants. In Chancery of New Jersey. Abratn Browning, Esqr., Chancellor. On motion to dissolve Injunction. Asa Whitehead and E. W. Whelpley, Esqs., appeared for tho complainants, and F. T. Frelinghuysen and J. P. Bradley, Esqs., for thc defendants and the Warran It. It. Co. This cause was called up on Tuesday, 25th October, and after consid erable argument by counsel, was set down for Thursday, 27th, when the counsel all appeared. The reading of complainants' Bill, of several hundred pages and also the defendants' answer, which was a long document, occupied Thursday and part of Friday. The Bill of the Morris & Essex R. R. Co. was drawn by E. W. Whelpley, Esq., and the answer by J. G. Shipman, Esq.; both were ably drawn and displayed great legal knowledge. The cause was opened by F. T. Frelinghuysen, Esq., on the part of the defendants, and in an argu ment of much ability and much force, in sisted that the Warren It. B. Co. had priority of right; that thc Charter of the Warren B. B. Co. was first granted by the Legislature of N. J.; that this Com pany was'legally organized on the 4th March last, and the Stock subscribed: that Company, on 5th March, adopted thc the survey of the route for the Boad, as made by Edwin McNeil, the Chief Eugineei, and ordered their President, John I. Blair, to file the same in thc office of the-Secretary of State; that the company, by their President, John I. Blair, did, on the 7th March last, at four minutes before 1 1 o' clock, A. m.j of said day, file the survey of the route, in the office of the Secretary of State; that on the 4th March last at the time of organization, thc Warren B. It. Co. appointed a committee to purchase the right of way for the Boad; that the said Company did, on 4th March, imme diately after the organization, contract for the right of way, under hand and seal, with certain landholders, owning part of the passes in the Yass, and the Yanness Gaps; and that immediately after filing the survey of the route of the Warren B. B. in the office aforesaid, that Blair and his associates, contracted, under hand and seal, for the remainder of the right of way, of the landholders, through the Yanness and Yass Gaps, important pas ses in the mountains, where both roads occupy thc same ground; and this was the bone of contention. It was also shown on the part of the Warren B. B. Co. that they had procured the necessary legisla tion from the State of Pennsylvania, re cognizing the Warren B. B. Co., and al lowing their road to connect with tbe Delaware, Lackawanna & Western B. B. of Pa., and to bridge the Delaware; and that J. I. Blair and associates had constructed the Lackawanna & Western Bail Boad, from Scranton, in the Lacka wanna valley, in thc State of Pennsylvania, to the N. Y. & Erie B. B, at thc Great Bend, on the Susquehanna River, and are now constructing thc Delaware, Lackawanna & Western it. R. from Scranton to the Delaware River, through the Delaware Water Gap, to connect with the Warren R. R., and which latter Road counects with the Central R. R. of New Jersey, near New Hampton; and that these Com panies are large owners of Coal Lands, at Scranton; and that it was their intention, by these connexions, to open a great R. Road route from thc .cities of New York and Philadelphia, to Lake Erie and Lake Ontario; that it was intended to construct the Warren R. R., in good faith, as a complete outlet; that the Warren R. R. Co. had taken possession of the Yass and the Yanness Gaps under their contracts and contracted with an experienced con tractor to grado the same, and had ex pended large sums of money in the grad ing; that tho Warren Charter was the oldest, and vested in thc Warren Com pany the right, in express terms, to con struct their Road by the moat feasible route, to the Delaware Water Gap, and that route was shown by complainants themselves to be through the Aranness and Yass Gaps; that tho Warren route was adopted on the 4lh March, while thc Morris & Essex route was not adopted un til the 8th March; that the Warren route was first filed in the office of the Secre tary of State; that tho Warren Company had first contracted for the right of way through the passes of the mountains, and had taken possession of the land, and had fully fortified their position by con tracts, duly acknowledged and recorded, and full notice given to the Morris tj- Es sex It. R. Co.; and that any purchase made by them since the contracts made, by thc Warren B. B. Co., with the same parties was a fraud on the part of the Morris & Essex B. B. Co., in order to de feat the just and legal rights of tho War ren lt. B. Co., and that tho Bill was fair ly and fully answered, in every particu lar; and that the survey of the Warren It. B. as looated and described by Ed win McNeil, Esq., ono of thc most prac tical and experienced Engineers in the country, wa? exactly right, while the sur vey of the Morris & Essex lt. B. Co. was exactly -wrong. Asa Whitehead, Esq., appeared on the part of the Morris & Essex R. B. G.,nnd in a very able argument, set out the claims of thia Company, showning tho progress of their Boad from Newark to Morris- town, thence to Dover; and from Dover to Hackettstown ; and that they always intended to construct their road to the Delaware Water Gap; that thisjjintention was formed when the road was extended from Morristown to Dover, and he charged that this was all well known to Blair and his confederates; that the Morris & Es sex R. R. Co. had expended large sums in the construction of their road from Newark to Dover; that they were a com pany in existence, while the Warren Rail Road Company had done nothing; and generally, that the organization of tbe Warren R. R. Co. was a fraud, to defeat thc Morris & Essex Co.; and that the a dopting the survey on 4th March, and the filing of it on 8th March, and pur chase of the right of way first, and taking possession of the ground, were all done to prevent and and defeat the Morris & Essex It. It. Co.; that thc contracts taken by Blair for the right of way, although first, were not good, as against the Mor ris & Essex B. lt. Co., as it was not done in good faith, but to defeat and prevent the Morris & Essex It. B. Co. from con structing their road, unless they would consent to connect with the road that Blair and his associates were constructing in Pennsylvania, on such terms as Blair might dictate; and that the Mor. & Es. It. it. Co. had obtained Deeds for some of the lands that the Warren It. B.. Co. had contracted for; and that these Deeds had priority over conditional contracts, taken in bad faith, and a fraud against com plainants rights. These were some of the grounds taken by Mr. Whitehead iu his argument; he concluded it on Saturday last. The cause was then adjourned by the Master until Tuesday of this week. On Tuesday, the parties all present, E. W. Whelpley, Esq., on the part of the Complainants, opened his cause in sup portaof his Bill in an able argument; al luded to every point in it; as he had drawn it, he of course, was well booked up as to its contents. He attacked with great force all the supposed discrepancies in the an swer, which was not full; that it was, in part, evasive, and in many cases adroitly avoided and did not fairly come up to his pointed interrogatories, and that the Bill was not fairly answered. Like Mr. Whitehead, he contended that the organ ization of the Warren B. It. Co., the filing of the survcv, tho contracting for the right of way was done, got up, con' coctcd, conceived and carried out by Jno. I. Blair; that he was the head and front of the whole transaction; that the haste of the whole proceedings showed and proved plainly that it was a deep and dark laid plan, to defeat and cirenmvent the M. & E. It. It. Co., which was fairly entitled to the right of wa- through the Yanness and Yass Gaps, by prior right of Discovery; and that Blair and his con federates had ascertained, by watching the operations of Complainants Engineers in the field, and runniug by their stakes, that this waa the only feasible route thro' these mountain passes, over which a road could be constructed. Mr. Whelpley also contended that there was no force in the argument, that thc oldest charter had priority; or that the filing of the survey gave priority; or that adopting of the survev, or the pro curing of the right of way by conditional contracts, first, gave priority, lie con tended, and made a bold push, that a certain contract which Blair had procured in advance of the 31. & E. It. It. Co., was a fraud, on the ground that this Comp any had dispatched a messenger across the Delaware to bring a person to New Jersey, to sell them the right of way; that Blair crossed the Delaware, took the per son out of their jwssession, and purchased thc right of way of him. JIc further contended, that thc survey of thc route of the Warren R. B. was not sufficiently definite, and did not describe the route by monuments and marks 'sufficient!'; while the survey of thc Morris & Essex It. B. was got up with great care, and that their description was full and defi nite. Mr. Whelpley commenced lu3 argu ment on Wednesday, and concluded on Thursday evening. Mr. Whelpley and Mr. Whitehead, the counsel of the Com plainants, are both men of strong intel lect, ripe scholar?, and able debators. After Mr. Whelpley had concluded, Mr. John P. Bradlev commenced thc arjc umcnt on the part of tho Warren B. B. Co. He first recited the act of Incorpor ation, dated 12th day of February, 1851, of the latter Company, and proved by de monstration, and what he insisted did not admit of a doubt, that tho incorporation of the Warren B. lt. Co. by the Legisla ture of New Jersey was a franchise, grant ed by thc State of New Jersey, to that Company; that it was a property, a real ity, owned by the State and under their control; that tho State granted to the Warren B. R. Co, a part of their fran chise to construct a Bail Boad, by the most feasible route, from New Hampton to the Delaware Water Gap, and that that grant had priority over all others; it was a valid contract, and was binding on the Warren B. It. Co. to construct their Boad 011 the most feasible route, which he alleged the company intended to do; and that it was alleged and admited by tho M. & E. R. B. Co. that thc route through Yanness and Yass Gaps was the only possible route, and that the grant to tiie Warren It. B. Co. was a special grant to usetJiat route, that itwas iXizonhj route in law they were entitled to occupy as it was the only feasible route) tbat the State of New Jersey did, on the 12th of Febru ary, 1851, confer on the Wrrrcn It. It. Co. thc right of do?)iain, and all thc fran chise that she had, by the most feasible route through the Vanncss and Vass Gaps; the State therefore having parted with that franchise and right of domain to thia Company, she had, therefore, fully as signed and quit claimed, and conjercd by hcr own acts, her right and franchise to the Warren R. R.Co., she, therefore, had no power to confer it upon others, as she had already parted with it for full consid eration, and no other construction could be put upon it. Again, the Warren R. R. Co. was first chartered, and had carefully and lawfully organized their Company on thc 4th of March; had adopted the survey of their route first; had first filed the survey of their route; had first con tracted for the land necessary for the con struction of the road; were the first to take possession of the land, and werethe first to obtain subscriptions to build tho road; and instead of Mr. Blair and his associates usincr great exertions to defeat j the Morris & Essex B. B. Co., it was the , Morris & Essex B. K. Co. that used all ' their endeavors to defraud and defeat the Warreu B. It. Co. out of their jut and le gal rights conferred upon them by the State of New Jersey; that instead of Blair and his associates watching thc move ments of the M. & E. B. B. Co., that company, by their own showing, was watching, through their spies, thc organ ization of the Warren B. It.; having learn ed that the Warren B. B. Company had finished their survey, and had advertised to open Looks, to organize the said Corn- pany, it was then determined to defeat the Warren B.B. of their just and legal rights, well knowing that the Warren lt. lt. was duly and legally organized on thc 4th of March, and had adopted the survey of their route. This accounts for their fol lowing Blair to Trenton to defeat him in getting their survey first filed, but in which they tccre defeated; they then con ceived thc plan of sending agents to War ren, to purchase the right of way in the Yass and Yanness Gaps, to defeat Blair and his road, but this Blair and his asso ciates had already purchased. The M. & E. B. B. Co. being fairly de feated in all their unjust endeavors, they then conceived the plan of inducicing by bribery some individuals who had sold the right of way to the Warren B. R. Co. and contracted with them for their land, to sell the right of way over the very sa?nc route to thc said M. & E. It. R. Co., and to violate their contracts with thc Warren R. R. Co. This they did by paying lar ger and cxhorbitant prices, and they suc ceeded in seducing two indiviruals to vi olate their contracts, and thus obtained deeds; but iu the one case, if not in both, they took the precaution to make it a, condition in the deed, that if they did nofc retain or use the land described in the deed, they should have a right to have the same amount of land in another place upon which to locate their Road. Thc Warren R. R. Co. took immediate posses sion of the lauds of the en07is seduced and put it under contract, it is upon this land that the Morris & Essex lt. R. Co. have obtained' icithout notice, the present injunction, and this is thc controversy. It was clearly shown in the answer of J. I. Blair and his associates, that the offer to the M. & E. B. B. Co. to induce them to extend their road, was liberal and fair; and that they were willing that tho latter Company should build their road. Mr. Bradly read from numerous au thorities and decisions, in support of his position, all proving thc right of prior grants; he cited the case of the Susque hanua Canal Co. against the Suubury and Erie B. B. Co. In this case thc R. R. Co., was last chartered and the first to act but the Court decided that the canal Co., having the oldest charter gave them pri ority and the choice of groun'flp, and so ho construed all the cases read; that they all proved that the first grants al ways held. Mr. Bradley closed his argu ment on Friday eveniug, the cause having occupied seven days. A New Medicine.
