OUR nAIL. ROADS*
The question now eliciting public atten
tion, is whether, or how far, the people of
this State and peninsula are benefittod by
railroad facilities.
In the abstract, there can be no question
of the vast advantages, pecuniary, intel
lectual and moral, resulting to communi
ties located on, or in proximity to lines of
railroad; but in our particular case many
reflecting men, in view of the general sys
tem of extortion and absorption resorted to
by the controllers of our niaiu lines, are
apprehensive, and with rensou, that even
though we may have facilities, correspond
ing advantages are far from being realized.
The State of Delaware, the creature of
its taxable citizens, has boou very liberal
to railroad improvements within its bor
ders, not only as an endorser of the bonds
of at least two companies to a very large
amount, but also in a more substantial
form of an absolute donation, as wo are in
formed, of about $200,000 to the princi
pal—-the Del. It. It. Co.
due to the State in instalments of $10,0(10
per annum for twenty years, from a cer
tain corporation for a certain monopoly
privilege obtained eighteen years ago.
We have no doubt of the prompt pay
ment of these instalments as given to the
Del. Road by the State, and surely the
citizens, thus liberal, had reason to antic
ipate that they would reap advantages in
tne form of reasonable charges for freight
nnd passengers.
In these hopes they have been disap
pointed, and already are our people look
ing forward to other means of transporta
tion. A charter has been granted to a
company, styled the Del. & Chesapeake R.
R. Co. having in view the construction of
a road from Port l'cnn, on the Del. Ray,
to the Maryland lino. This enterprise has
been hitherto prevented by the before-men
tioned monopoly, soon to expire by limita
tion, and was considered an important link
in the air-line route projected by Major
ltcybold and parties in New York. It has
been suggested, that if the State of Dela
ware would loan means and oredit to a com
pany for the construction of a road from
Dover or some point below there to con
nect with Media Road, in Pennsylvania,
no as to have an independent communica
tion with New York, that the taxable citi
zens would be greatly benefitted thereby,
in a great reduction in the cost of trans
portation of all commodities, notwithstand
ing the outlay in the construction of the
road. Should the contemplated road from
Washington to New York be built, a con
nection with that road would he very de
sirable.
The feasibility of water transportation
of fruits and vegetables to Ne
become a matter of consideration and in
vestigation, from the Chesapeake & Del.
Canal, Delaware City, Port Penn, Dover,
J.cwistown, and from points intermediate.
Shipments from Kent county, by water,
to New York, last season, were considered
very susccssful,
There can ho no doubt that many of the
people of the State aud the Maryland por.
tiou of the peninsula arc interested in the
success of the railroads constructed and in
process of construction, and the future wel
fare of these roads. There should certain
ly be no antagonism between corporate in
terests and individual interests, where the
remedy, advantageous to both, could be
easily applied.
A reasonable rate of charges for freight,
very much below the present rates, would
ho au antidote for all the ills whiuh
gross public attention, if such a tariff of
rates could be made permanent so us to
inspire confidence in the minds of produ
cers as to a certainty of the cost of trans
portation. Such a system would doubtless
induce far greater effort in the liue of pro
duction, us well in largely extended
chards as in the other productions of which
this peninsula is so fruitful.
The present Railroad policy is averse to
a regular course of progress, and a differ
ent and reasonable system would go very
far towards preventing other avenues of
shipment being established, and at .the
same time greatly accelerate and increase
■its business and promote tho interests of
.our people, who will by a mutual interest
become tho friends and supporters of all
[the roads. Citizen.

•Since the Socialist Society at Ooeida

number of people for whom washing is

The number of pieces washed for each

There is no reason why this cooperative

LECTURE,
R EV. PROF. JULES Df.LAUNAY, who made
3'ears of researches in the Romap Catacombs,
and whose labors have met with marked favor
in almost all the colleges and the leading
churches of the land, will speak on the Catacombs
of Rome and their relation to the church of the
Martyrs, their faith, their view of Christ, of death,
of life, in theLcctpre Room of the Presbyterian
Church on Wednesday evening next at 7 o'clock.
The subject will be illustrated by diagrams and
fac similes of symbols, inscriptions Ac. prepared i
originally from sketches made by Prof. D. him
self. The Catacombs are Galleries that underlie
Rome, once sanctuaries to persecuted Saints.
There—amid emblems of faith, of assurance ami
love, and scenes where christiun hope triumphs
over affliction—sleep, till the glorious morning,
seven millions of God's Saints.

VERSA!i WRl.XUER,
Itend the following testimonial» i
From Rev. I.. Scott, Bishop tf the B. B Church
Dear Sib: —We like our machine much ; coulA
not be persuaded to do our work without It, and.
with tho aid of Doty we fee! that we are masters,
of the position. Un one occasion, the clothe*
were prepared, hut the washer-woman failed us.
W r e were not to l.e defeated that
way. i took
hold (which of course I should not have done if
wc had had no machine) and iu 2| hours we pu Y
through eleven dozen pieces, many of which
were sheets, and they were well done too. Wa
wish
great success.
from Rev. Ifeura Wurd Beecher .—After a con
stant use of the Luiversal Clothes Wringer for
more than four years in my family, I am author
ized by the ''powers that be" to give it the most
unqualified praise, and to pronounce it an indis
pcnsible part of the machinery of housekeeping.
Our servants have ulwuys been willing to use if.
aud always liked it.
trom Rev. Theo. /». Cuyltr .-—Life is too short,
and human strength is too precious for our wo
mankind to be kept at the Old process of clothos
washing and wringing. In the laundry of my
house there is a perpetual thanksgiving on Mon*
days for the invention of your excellent Wringer.
I wish human hearts could be cleansed as easily.
Orange Judd , Editor of American Agriculturist,
sags : —Doty's Washing Machine we have tried
thoroughly, in competition with many others,
and for actual service this seems to be an ini*
proveraent upon every previous machine we haro
tested. Our "better half ' says this is taken tu.
most kindly by the "help," and that she cannot
persuade them to use any other, while this is u|
hand,
Solon Robinson sags Friend Doty— Your last
improvement of your Washing Machine is a com
plete success. A slim girl, ten years of age uses
it, and an invalid lady, who has to sit down to
work, can wash without fatigue. I assure vou
our machine, after a /car's u«e, is thought more
of to-day than ever, and would not be parted
with under any circumstanocs. Vou havo won
blessings from all the woman about thia house,
be assured of that,
From the t rife tf the Bon. S. C. Fessenden .—Mr
ressenden, at my request, purchased for me one
of your Doty Washing Machines. It has been
used to do my weekly washing for more thaft'a
year, und I have no hesitation in saving that, in
my opinion, it is all a housekeeper can desire, for
the purpose for which it is desired. Jt ha» given
mo entire satisfaction. B '
