The Railroad, Uo (bo nth of Janusry, 1675, & few of tho most important and leading men ?fthis place assembled togcth-r, ami. among Other thing*, determined to! make an effort to procure the right of way and construct a railroad from this place to CUrklburg. After considera lion it was agreed that certnin gentle juen of this place would forui a cor poration under the provisions of the act* of'72-3, cbaptcr 88, whereupon article! of incorporation were drawn up and signed, and tho came duly admit' ted to recoid in tho county clerk's office. The next day a meeting was held and ?tepi wore taken to open books and re reivo subscriptions, nnd in less than a day more tbau ?2,500 was subeciibed. A committee composed of Judge Kd wards and Hon. llcnry Bramion wcru appointed to go to Clarksburg, ascer tain bo * much Hock could be raised, (be prospcct of obtaining the right of wsy through Clarksburg to toe JJ. k O. 11. R. depot, oud consult Mr. Hurt ?od others as to tho probable cost ot grading, laying the track, and furnish ing the necessary rolling stook. Tho comiuittcc started on Weduesday to see what could be done. Tho most important mailer to bo considered is the right of way ; aud much depeuds upou the actiou, tuas* nanimity aod good seme of thoso living on the lino or route that will bo select ed, whether or uot wo will ever bo able to have any moan* of transportation to sod from this place other tbau a stage coach over au abominable and detesta ble turnpike. It is generally under stood and believed that if a free right of way can bo obtained from horo to Clarksburg, thcro will not bo the slightest difficulty in constructing n Railroad, aud that within a short time. Therefore, wo appeal to the citizens of Lewis and Harrison to owako to n sense of duty tint they owe to them selves, owo to their country, and owe to posterity, not only to give the right of woy, but with a gencroys and mag nanimous spirit, open their hearts, Jooscu their purse strings, and sub scribe liberally to the enterprise which will increase very largely the price of your lands, afford easy communication aud travel with tho outsido world, onJ bring a market for all you have to sell At your doors. It ha* not been determined as to the route tho road will bo built upon, ai it will be accessary first to ascertain tho cheapest routo aud best location for the same. As wo aro for a llailroad ou any route, terms, or couditiou#, even though it bas to pass down the West Fork river, wo can say but little about the best or most available route. It is a matter that the people should take Lold of and never rest until tho object is accomplished ; nnd it behooves tho peoplo along tho river, as well as thoso along tho turnpike, to be up and u doing, for it is certain that much do pends upon them and the interest thoy take in tho road,whether auytbiug will ever be accomplished. We have always believed that the plan of a ltailroad, upon tho terms now on foot, was a feasible one, and the stock in the road will pay better than any other investment you can malio. We arc informed that at least ono iundrtd horsrs, twenty-five wagons and coachcs, and twentv-fivo men are daily employed in importation aud transportation of merchandise, passeu - gors and mails to and from this place, and if that much capital and labor can finds it lucrative, bow much more will St bo when tho same labor cau bo per formed with oue-tenth of the capitul Wo hopo to hear a response from tho lsnd-holdtrs along tho different routes that will awaken new energy in our peoplo. And 'cro long tho whistle of the iron-boriMi may be heard for mile* distai;(, coming through tho mountain gorge* aud up the beautiful valley of the West l'oik river, briugiug good news and glad tidings from ail parts of tho world Wo appeal to all tho good people of this county to swukcu from their leth orgy and determiuo to do something that will mako ilicm next to, if uot the first county in tho Stato. But a fow short years ngo tho farmer's lifu in this country was a drudge, and it wus al most impossible to tnuko a living ou tho best farm. Then you had uo mar ket for anything you rained except ntock, and that had to be driven hun< drcds of utiles to market. How is it at presentWhy tho railroad facili ties, notwithstanding you aro twenty three miles from tho same, affords a tuarkut lor ail the products of tho farm. Chioktiu, butler, eggs, yea, every thing, has increased four-fold in price on account of your proxituijy to the railroad; aud it hucksters cau find it a lucrative business to drive wagons .forty-six miles and buy your home products aud insko n profit oil thojtaino, why not nccrpt the golden opportunity of having a railroad at your door and tavo tho profit &u your farming pro ducts. We have unbounded confidcncc in the energy, enterprise aud good senso of those who have undertaken this no ble work, and wo bespeak for tlictu tncccss. Tho necessity of the times and tho people rcijuiro this road to be built. Givo ua a Railroad, and wc will lave tho Capitol of Ibo Stato located at Weston before another five years shall roll around. Bcitlon or Congreia. Ai wo hive not heretofore noted the fact, wo state aa a matter of course tbst tho iccond session of tho 4UdCon? grcis, ploasantly regarded by at least seven-tenths of tho people as tho last Radical Congress tho country will over be curscd with, if now iu soisiun Tho priooipal business, as usual, was to ap point a ootnuiitteo to search out tbo inoat roguish of the body, tho balance (xpeetibg lo appear viriuoui by con* irast. The New nuance BIU. The following in ibt text of the Fi nance IJill ibut was pas^.i by tbe LJuited Sutra Senate a few day# ago; 1. That specie payments bo resumed January 1, IfTO?lour yean beuce. 2. Free bauking. 3. Tbo retirement or tUc fractional oarroitcy, and substitution therefor oi ftuiull bilvcr coiu. 4. Tbe retirement of grceubacks iu tbo proportioa of eighty per coat of tbo additional National iiunk currcney ad issued, until the aggregate is reduced to 8300,000,000 of greeubaeks. 5. Tbo Secretary of the Treasury to use fiurj.lui specie in tbo Treasuiy, or to sell bonds lo reduce the Treasury notes down to $ 3(>0,000,000. An interesting decision bai jwt been nude by tho Supreme Court of Ap peals of Virgiuia, iu refercucu to the debt ol the old State, iu which the State* of Virginia aud Weil Virgin in wer* held to bo joiutly aud separately bound for its payment. Tbe preseni Slate baa ouly hold that Wc?t Virgin it wan liable for one-third of the debt, and that State has repudiated that claim on tbe ground, principally, that the money was oxpeuded mostly for the benefit of Kuit Virginia. Under this decision (he question arisos as to bow a Virginia State creditor ?an re cover out of the jurisdiction of that State. Thu Supremo Court will dis< p090 of this interesting question, which will involve the constitutionality of the act of separation of the two Common wealths. The dual settlement of the case will bo looked for with much iu* torcHt. Marshal I'ackaiid, confidential as socioto of brethcr-iu-law Casey, and fricud of our President, made the other day, to the Congressional Committee now investigating Louisiana, the mo?l remarkable confession ever uttered in Atucrici. lie said bo did not believe n Republican Stale goverumout could maintain itself iu thnt. or any oilier Southern State without (he nid'of Uni ted State troops. As a Republican Stato government in th? South will ev er bo known in the history of lliia couutry as *ynuii)iuous with roguery, taxation, proscription and oppression, the Marshal's words may be thus translated; 1 do not believe that we, l ho ltcpublicau rulers of the South, will be enabled tu steal at will, arrest citi zens. overturn election", and commit ull the outrages we please iu future, uuless ihj President of (ho United States will prolcct us, wbilo so doing, with bid army aud uavy. This is rather bard ou Packard, but auspicious for ibo people of the South. Truth, Like "Murder, Will Out." We give the Cincinnati Gazttle, a Republican journal, credit for thu fol lowing outspoken sentiments: "That thu iufluonce of iho Republi can party in thoie States has been frit tered away by political adventurer* is perfectly plain, and that tiicso adven turers should bo removed from power, so far as it is possible for tho Adminis tration to do it, is.quito as clear. These men have fasteued themselves upon the Ac'miuistration mainly through tho influence of Senators and Representatives in Congress from thu Southern States, and these men, iu Iho main, are a disgrace to ,our representa tive system, lo iho parly lo which they belong, and to the Administration which they assume to support. lJettor far, looking at it from a uicro partisan staud-point, that the Democrats should control the Government of every South' cru State, so fur an tbo Republican party of iho country is concerned, tbau that the latlor should be loaded down with the abominable record of so mauy of tho carpet-baggers. Tho tituo has now fully come when dccisivu meas ures should be taken with reference U this evil, ai.d iho way to begiu is to pui men iu the National offices that may bi dependod upou to do right; men whe will honestly and thoroughly perforu their official duties, aud use their iuflu cnco to correct abuses of every kind iu Stato CiovcrnrucntB." [From the Martiosbur^ Sutcjuun ] The Legislature. Tho Legislature of West Virginia will meet at Charleston on iho 12th ol this month Wo believe that the pco pie of this State have never looked u thu proceedings of that body With more interest uud anxiety than llicy d > tc ihat which is shortly t? assemble. The last Legislature did not, by iti legislation, give cntiro satisfaction tc tho people, and there wore some acts done by it that were ruber revolting tc tho public tusto and judgment. There was una period during their session at which the Democratic ascendancy in this Stato would have been seriously endangered, if tbo elections bad then occurred. Thu nresent Legislature, it is ad mitted, is a body greatly supurior to its predecessor iu >hc intelligence, abil ity uud experience of its members. It embraces scvctal judges of c?lubli?bcd reputatiou iu the State; many lawyers of eminent ability; some members of thn Constitutional Convention of LS7i!, aud mauy gentlemen in tho fatming, mercantile aud media uical pursuits ol life, of practical wisdom and sagacity. Wo may therefore feel arturcd that we have a body uow rcpreietiting the Slate, that in all its acts will appreciate and rcoognizo tho truo interests and honor of tho people. Tho first duty that will dovolvo upon them will bo tboir own organiiatiou by tho selection of proper officers. We havo heard no objootion to tho gentlo man who, during tho last session, pre sided with so much ability in the Sen* ate, and we presume then will bo uo difficulty iu his reflection. For tno Speakership of tho Uouio of Dele* gotes, soveral candidates havo bccu named, any of whom would bo a good selection. Tbe next important duty which will devolvo upon that body, will bo tho election ol a United States Senator for this Stato. Wo doubt if thero ever has been a period in our history, when iho great mass of Iho people took bo lively au interest in that selection. Goutltf men of distinguisbfd ability md txpi 'Hence have Urn named for lliat posi tion from all the grand Jivbiocs of the Statu; and no doubt their friends will talc uti uclivu interest iu srouriug for iLcui tho approving voice of tho Legis lature. It li scarcity posaiblo that aoy obnoxious selection can be rondo from tlio n lines now prominent before tho public; for they ure all persons of con ceded merit, and who have rendered valuable service to the State. Whilst therefore we bavo our Terjr 'dccided choice?and wo have given freo and full expre?sion to that choice, wc aboil nevertheleia acquiesce, without a mur mur of dimtisfaction, iu any decision ih?t may bo rendered by the Legisla ture. Wo simply ask that body lo do whnt we are sore, their patriotieiu will itieU suggwt to them to do? to soar above all petty, sectional predjudicci. and con?idi.rutioiia of mere pmoual farorit 1 ism. and concentrate their support up ! on that man, whoever iu Ihcir judg k ment be roav be, who may be best qualified lo represent the Slate of Wist 1 Virginia in iho*e arduous and stormy 1 conflicts which it must be apparent to > overy one will lake placo iu tho ap proaching upheaval of the popular aon limrnt of this nation. The r'iiiaiuina duties that will de volve upon lliat body, will bo thoso of 1 mere ordinary legislation, and it to to be hop-d that no effort will be spared ' to lighten lhe burden* now renting ' upon the people; to cheapen and fa 1 oilitale justice, and to rolortn our Mat 1 utes in all nspecin where th&bcit in ' tereiti of the people mny demand it. (?cant's Schcminis. If there is any man who thinks that the President has relinquished his claim on tho White Ilouso for another I term, with tho salary und pickings ? thereto atlncbed,ho isgrcally mistaken. i About tho only prominent characters i tic of Mr. Gruut, is what his friends i like lo dcoominato his "bull-dog leu i aoity," uud hu exhibits this teuacity as conspicuously iu holding ou to his 3d ' term project, as. ho has ever douo in anything during his life: Nothing i could point more conclusively to such . a determination than his ordering Geo i oral Sheridan to New Orleans, to take commatud of tho Gulf, which means particularly Louisiana. Tins is a poor unforiunaiu military province, cu 1 led out of respect to departed liberty, a Stale,and as it bears thisnomioal title, from the game rcspcct to tho memory of liberty, it is permitted to cast nu electoral vole for President, liut.like ihe other shows of elections permitted (here, the vote must bo controlled, fur Graut ncedj all he cau get to secure hi* next term, uud as he lias already established his personal Government there, he it determined to hold it tcu aciously, uutil, by it, ho lias counted this electoral vote for U.Simpson Grant iu 18711' No filler, uor rooro willing tool fur carrying out ibeso designs could bo selected, thcu Geuernl Sheri dan. A man notoriously viudictive; tilled with bitter hatred towards the South, und ever ready to yield abjoot fubuiittiiou lo the will of bis master? as shown by his creating a young un Hedged graduate of West Puiut Lieu tenant Colonel on his stall", promoting him over old veteran oQiocrs simply be euuso he was a son of that master?he was naturally tho very person who would deiight to hold iu with a tight rein, the tree aspirutious of a tram pled on peopto, and forco them, by fair itieaus or foul, to yield to tho wishes of thiii would-be periuaneut ruler. 0( course, it may never publicly transpire what private imtruotious Imvo pasred between our new llichard, and hie tuithful liuckiugham; but beyond doubt, the latter well understood hit role, for hardly had bo arrived iu the city of New Orleans, than ho com uicuced carrying out his pluus, aud 1 edit a letter to the Secretary of War expressing his "deep regret at tho ex ' istenco of a spirit of defiance to all law 1 ful (rather uolawlulj authority," and ' drawing such a picture of blood and ' murder us ouly a most vivid imagiua ' tion could suggest. Yet all the while, even he cau walk the streets in safety. ' without haviog to carry a walking cane for his protection, and can diuo at his hotel, und Ibero unarmed und unharmed, recurcly partako of the very wiuo which probably brought him up to the poiut of soeiug murderer* f aud devils lloating ou every wuvo of . the nlmoFphcro ) Jiut the placing thU man in power' is not the only thing whivh iudicatet , Mr. Gruut's iuleutious.

We havuindeed arrived at a delightful con , dition of uU'uirs, when such ihiugs can i be done und ucquicsoed in. This is , lb-.* first step of this naturo over takeu in America; but it is only another move iu Grant's giiue, and it will not bo the luftt, for it nretty well demon strated uow, that Louisiana must be long. at all hazard* to .him, and wiih this State bound, it will bo timo to turn his attcution to others. Well, lot him do his woist.
