seems to be a thaw baa been golog
on lor the last tvo days, although it
will take a weak of such weather to melt
tbe snow that covers the lace ol tho country
throughout all this region to tbe depth
ol several inches. In the city the sleighing
it about dons lot, but in the country it
is aa good as ever. Up In Broolie county,
as we observed during an excursion extending
from Saturday up to yesterday,
they have never had such eleighlng. It
waa seven weeks yesterday since tho peo.
pie commenced traveling on runners inatead
of wheels, and they have kept it up
ever since. The roads have keen in perlaot
order almost all the lime, and the
amount of hauling on sleds that has bsen
done ia Immense. The people oi Wellington
county, as far eaat aa Buffalo
Village, have hauled bay anil
wheat to Wellabnrg, and all the farmers
have utilized the anow to tbe fullest
extent in the way of hauling timber, coal
and all aorta of farm Btaif. The only
drawback has baon that the weather hut
prevented corn huaklog to audi an extent
that very little corn has been marketed,
moat lumen haying no more buaked than
eutHced for their atock. Tlie country Is
full of corn, but it nevertheless readily
brings fifty cenla, and la not plenty at
that. There ia also a good deal of hay, but
the uncertainties of winter feeding have
been inch that those who have plenty of
it are not inclined to aell it even at $18
per ton. They want to see whether the
8round hog theory of alx weeks of wluter,
ating from the 2d of this month, wll.' pan
ont this year or not. They believe it good
deal more in the ground bog aign than in
Mother Shiptona prophecy about the
world coming to an end thia year, and
and hence are not inclined to lot go their
grip on their earthly poaaeaslona yet
The quantity of ice that haa been put
up in the private ice housea in the country
never waa as great aa it is this year.
And for that matter, the quantity of it
that haa been piled up by the wayside was
never half- aa great. A curious specimen
of this piling up can be Been on the Weliahurg
and Bethany pike near Buchanan's,
about half way between the two placea.
Owing to a gorge In lluffalo creek near
that place prior to the tost break up, the
creek overpoured the bottoms In the vicinity,
carrying with it fences anil huge
masses of ice, and depositing them to
the depth ol several foet over the pike
and adjacent territory. To such an extent
was the pike blockaded that hall a
hundred men had to ho called into service
by the turnpike company and set to
work with picks and sboveln to
cut a roatl through the aolid ice
and the icy debris. They cut a
narrow gauge through, juBt wide enough
for a wagon, and the consequence Is that
vehicles pasa between the solid Icy walls
after tbe fashion of the Israelites passing
through the Ked sea between solid walls
of water. It la really a curiosity to see the
freak that hu thus played by the waters
of tbe usually well behaved Buffalo creek
this winter. One of the chief sufferers by
the freak is a Mr. W barton who lives in the
vicinity, and whose fine bottom land hna
been literally and irretrievably ruined by
the new channel cut through by the
creek. Mr. Wharton Is a man whom "disaster
has followed fast and followed
faster," having hid hla house burned only
a abort time ago. Hla last calamity haa
fallen as a heavy blow upon him.
The unusual winter weather that we
have bad haa made feeding a pretty expensive
matter to tiie farmers, although
nJn/ilr nl oil Iritwla linvn thrlvnn iiml urn in
good condition at this time. The sheep
howover are faltering a little In their
thrift, and are showingsigns ol the need of
contact with the earth. Dry feeding for
so long a time palls upon the appetite and
thickens the blood too much. Hence
some farmers are feeding apples and turnips
in addition lo their dry feed, These
have a corroctivo effect on the appetito
and the circulation.
We notice that some sheep in the country
are well heused this weather, while
others are permitted to remain exposed
most of the time. The theory of those
who let them lie out around the stacks is
that It Is a natural sort of exposure, for
which they are prepared by naturo, and
that it acts ns a preventive against foot
rot. They contend that tho herding of
sheep together Ina sheep house heats and
defiles their feet to such an extent as to
produce foot rot. Whether this is the case
or not it Is certain that it takes agreut deal
more feed to keep exposed sheep in even
fair condition than it does those that are
kept tinder shelter.
These moonlight nights have been groat
nights for sleighing parties In the country.
A number uf the young people of Bethany
made a raid on Ool. 0. 11. Bead's
hospitable home on last Saturday night.
They did not, however, find the Colonel
*nd bis good wife unprepared, aud the
heaped up Ores and the good cheer that
went round reminded one of those Rood
old winter scenes recorded in Doddridge's
Motes concerning the early days in this
region. The night was bright ns day outside,
and the sleigh belle made the air
vocal with their musio,

The Stale of West Virginia is one of
those young Stales which la an yet inadennalolv

?ju?tw/ ...... inuiuaun "??
gome other Mates, however, it linden It
eees greater benefit to Itself Irotn il en polling
the ft* rsllronds It hia than trom encouraging
the construction ot more.
There are two lines ol toad crossing lla
territory from eaat to west, with scarcely
a fragment In the other directions. Mo
State in proportion to Ita area, haa ench a
wealth ot timber, coal. Iron ore, limestone,
salt, petrolenm, etc., all of which
need, mora than anything else, capltol
and railroads to make them of value to
her. Nevertheless toinpted by the onnnlng
bait laid by Jeremiah Black, she Is
now aaked to "regnlato rates" ot tare and
A bill haa been offered by some Intrete
rate Granger that local freight aball be 1
carried at the aame rate, per mile, as the
through freight*, regardless of Isnglh of
ban). Rate* between Chicago and New
fork and Liverpool are made clear
through; and to obtain any lualne** over i
the line* crowing West Virginia the com- J
(ante* must make similar through ratee o
or lose the freight. Tlis expenditure* for J
road bed, rail* and fixed expense* are :
about the earns for * railroad with only 1
local traffic as for one with a large through J
traffic in addition?in other worda, the
road once built can run twenty extra
through freight train* for a trifling
addition to the total expense. The
through traffic, taken from other linea, i
helps to pay the expenses and intereet on :
first coat. This jnortsighted Virginia
legislator thinks it w 'id be better to shut ;
off the through traffic, and leave the road j
to depend solely on the local?for auch is <
the obvious effect of his bill. One o> two J
things must then happen: either the local j
rates must be increased so as to cover the .
entire expense, or the road must fail to
pay and the company stop running. This,
ul course, is not what is intended, but it
is the natural sequel. Until legislator! ,
can device some way of compelling rail- ,
road ownera to run railroads at a loss, and i
of paying the deficiency out of their 1
pockets for the privilege, they would do 1
well to leave fares and freights to the un- i
failing forces of supply and demand. 1
The State haa voted to remove its capital
(now at Wheeling) to Charleston,
which, like the present site, is accessible
from only two directions, and to rejeb
either will require a long roundabout journey
of hundreds of miles by river or rail.
What sort of au invitation la this raid on '
[he o!il roada to porsoua contemplating
tbe building of now proposed lines? The
Slate of Arkansas baa been troubled In
tbe name way lately: but we are glad to 1
tiuu that a message from the Governor,
setticK forth the need and advantaged of
moro railroads, haa bad the dealred elfeet
ol suppressing the agrarian movement.
West Virginia and aome of the young
States at the West will learn, in time, that
tbey hiive nothing to gain by attempting
to iuterfere with laws ol trade, or by
threatening capital engaged In opening up
roadi through theni. however enticing the
effort may be, lor the moment, to the
demagogue. < | |

Tutt'e l'illa are a specific. Tbe vigor

The following statement of William J
Coughlln, of Bomervilie, Mass., is no remark*
able that we beg to ask for the attention ef 1
our readers. He says: "In the fall of 1870 1
was taken with a violent bleeding of tho lungs,
followed by a severe cough. 1 soon began to I
looso my appetite and flesh. I was so weak I
at one time tuat I could not leave my bed. In
the summer of 18771 was admitted to the City <
Hospital. "While there the doctors said I had
a hole in my left lung as higasn half dollar.
I expended over a hundred dollars in doctors
and medicines. I was so far gone at one time
a report went around that I was dead. I gave
up Iiojh), but a friend told me of Dr. William
Hall's Balsam for the Lungs. I laughed at
my friends, thinking that my case was incur*
able, but I got a bottlo to satisfy them, when t
to my surprise and gratification I commencod 1
to feel better. My hope, once dead, began to j
revive, and to*day 1 feel in better spirits than
1 have for the past three years. j
"I write this hoping you will puhlish it.
so that every one inflicted with Diseased *
Lungs will be induced to take Dr. Wra. Hall's
Balsam for tho Lungs, and be convinced that
Consumption can be curod. I have taken two
bottles, and can nosltlvely say that It has
done morn good than all the other medicines
I have taken since my sickness. My cough
has almost entirely disappeared and I shall
soon be able to go to work." Sold by druggists.
