The following is the result of the vote ta
ken on Thursday last, in Amherst County,
on the subscription of $50,000 bv the County,
to the Lynchburg extension of the Orange
and Alexandria Rail Road. At Amherst ,
Ct art House 74 for the subscription, o ,
against; at Temperance district 50 tor and - j
against, and at New Glasgow 20 f°r au^ ^ !
against, making 144 votes tor, and 10 against ^
the subscription, with six other precincts yet
to hear from, which will not probably alter
the proportion. We learn that it is the in- I
tention of the Board of Directors of the Or
ange and Alexandria Rail Road, to put the
t>0 miles from Charlottesville to Lynchburg
under coutract, as soou as this subscription (
is secured. i

County, which so swelled the streams of wa- j

ited by heavy rains. ^ ^ ^ ^

Our friend of the “Virginia Advocate,” in
hi* Friday's issue, after dealing some hard !
blows at the University of Yirgiuin, (which |
probably were well deserved) having a little
wrath remaining, turns it upon the Orange j
and Alexandria Railroad Company, in an j
article condemnatory of that company for ]
a small increase of fare recently made ;
on their road. Now, it the “Advocate j
will compare the business and lure on the J
Orange road, with that of the three lines
between New York aud Washington, and
then estimate the superiority of the road and
equipments, its rapid speed and exact time, j
and the extraordinary attention paid by '
the Company to the comfort of travellers, nei- \
ther our angry friend, nor a generous public, •
will hud fault with the present charge, which ;
is a trifle under four cents per mile. '1 he j
rate now is the same charged on the crowded j
thoroughfare between llaltimore and Wash- •
ington, and the Orange Company in increas
ing the fare, has but followed the course j
which was found necessary by other and old
er companies, in consequence ot the greatly i
increased expenses ot working their roads.
