The failure of the county of Shenandoah tc
consent, at this time, to a county subscription
to the Manassas Gat Rah. Road, we regret,
because Shenandoah ought to be one ol the
firmest and most active counties in support of
tbe Road. But the progress of this important
improvement, cannot he arrested or impe
ded by slight obstacles. It* ends and aims
are of such moment to the counties through
which it passes, to the c;t\ of Alexandria, am,
to the State of Virginia, that every day we feel
more and more interested in its success. \\ hat
it has already done, only gives us a foretaste
of its capabilities—and, i’s management, under
it* President, Directors, Engineer, and As>is
taat*, we believe to be equal to that ot a/:}
other road in the State. It i* now on tv enter
ing into the region, from which its principal
profit* are to be derived, and its greatest busi
ness to be received. Every mile it proceeds
will show what it can do. Under these cir
cumstance*, every well wisher or this region
must unite in the hope that the Manassas Gap
Road may continue to be succes-fu'ly piosccti
led, as we have no doubt, it will be.

Committee, a personal inspection of the road

it, which is i.ecesswrv to ensure ns pei led safe

inns secuied limn interruptions to winter work,
the Contractor confidently asserts that the
stone work w»!| he ready lor the wooden super
structure, early m the en.Miing Spring. 'Ihe
grading and construction of the road from tins
point to the Forks, is probably finished, and two
tnirds ol the intervening distance is furnished
with proper drainage: and altogether present*
a most sah*lac:or> appearance. At the South
Kiver Hr.dge, the Eastern abutment m almost
finished, and the pier* progressing with ail dis
patch above ihe surface of the water, and in a
few davs will have also advanced beyond the
encroachments of floods and ice, and the work
may be continued during the approaching win
ter so as to enstt e ns completion in time for its
superstructure ihe splendid appearance of,
this stone work excites tfm admiration of every
one. and wili compare favorably iri point of
massiveness, substantiality, and e.egunce of lin
i-b, with any other work of the same de-cop
lion to be found any where. hi^* remark ap
plies equally to both bridges, and will include
the work done upon the large and more uri
portant culverts along the lint*. Leaving South
Kiver and proceedmgly eastwardlv, the work
was found in a state of forwardness, premi
sing a spee *y completion, until the heavy cuts
anti embankments on the western slope of the
Kiue Ki ige were reached. At this point the
Committee was enabled to witness the diffictil
t e» attendant upon the passage of the moun
tain, and as they realized the stupendous and
magnificent undertaking of the Company, felt
a degree of exultation at the triumph of art in
overcoming the rudeness of nature, whicn it is
not easy to describe, hut which calls for the
highest compliments to the talented and enter
prising Corps, who have projected and superin
tended the execution of this portion of the
work. The difficulties already conquered, are
evidence that those remaining to be encounter
ed, will be. removed as speedily as the nature of
the case will admit. When informed that the
cut at Dismal Hollow is 72 feet deep, for much
the larger part through a bed of rocks, and that
j rhe fill at the same point is ninety-two feet, on a
culvert three hundred leet Ion* tor the base,!

they personally inspect it, amt see tor them- j

uptorn, and cast into the yawning gulph be
low," until the beautilul line of our improve
ment appears distinctly visible as it crosses the
lops of the heavy fills and runs between the
rocky walis ot the deep cuts until lost in the
graceful curves winch wind around the knobs
of the mountain. The Committee offer the
opinio-, that next year's crop will probab y he
transported from the valley, over this portion ot
the road ; in which, the Engineers and Con
tracto.s concur—and the progress and condition
of the work row under operation, confirm as .

The cons’ruction ol thi* part of the road com* ;
mends itself, in every respect, to the approba
ted of all who try it, as one of the best,
smoothest and finest improvements to be found
m the country—excelled by none.
The stock ot Locomotives, passenger and
freight cars, have been constructed with regard
i to the latent improv* d models, and o{ the best
i materia!-, and is sufficient to accommodate the
* trade and travel oti the road, for the present—
but when the transportation shall he extended j

its successful operation.
