station-house in town,Monday afternoon, two
men, ©ogaged in a playful scold*, slipped
from the platform upon the track, one of
them strikiug on his uead and becoming in
sensible for the time. As he is an employee
ab^ut the depot, it was at first supposed tnut
he was feigning heiple^ness, and he was
barefv picked up before the cars passed over

The Currency.
The New Yoik Courier proposes the fol
lowing remedy for the present evils of a de
ranged currency agaiust similar revulsions
hereafter. Let Congress at au early day af
ter its assembling pass a Liw, authorizing
Banks and parties associated tor that pur
pose in any State of the Lnion, to send their
j Bills to an officer at Washington designated
| in the Law, accompanied with Government or
State Stocks or both, both worth in market,
twenty-five or fifty per cent more than the
face ot the Bills; and make it ihc duty i f '
such officer to stamp upon such Bank bills, j
with signature attached.—“Receivable for j
Payments due to or by the Government ot j
the United States.”
And in the event of the non-redemption o* j
such Bank Bills in specie when present* d at j
the counter where issued, make U imperative
upon the officer referred to, as is the case |
with our Comptroller, to tell sufficient ot the
Stock upon which they were issued, b»r the»r
prompt redemption with interest;and further
more, such officer to be required at all times
i to keep a margin (named in the law) between
' the amount of the Bills and the market val
ue of the Stocks deposited, which shall effectu
ally guard against the possibility of loss to
' the Bill holder.
Our remedy then is the adoption of our
! New York Law in regard to currency, by
the General G >vernmerit, aud its extension to
' every State of the 1 nion.

Seventh Annual Meeting of the Stock
holder* of the 9l«niuaaa Gap Railroad
Company*
The Stockholders of the Manassas (Jap
Railroad Company, re-as8erabled at Ameri
can Hail, at 8 o’clock, on Thursday night,
Mr. Boswell in the chair.
Mr. Barre, Chairman of the Committee,
to whom was referred the President’s Report
; and accompanying documents, stated that
the Committee, from want of time had been
unable to come to any final conidusion, and
were unable to make a report, ihe Commit
| tee asked for further time.
Mr. T. M. Monroe offered the following
resolution :
Ituolvtd, That the Committee to whom
was referred the Reports of the President,
Chief Engineer, and Treasurer, shaii enquire
| and report what amount ot the bonds and
| other securities of this Company have been
i hy othecatcd or pledged, lor what, and on
what temis, the sarno are now held.
Mr. J. 11. Carter opposed the passage of
the resolution, on the ground that it was pre
mature. lie did not object to its adoption
i after the Committee to whom was referred
the Pre&ideat’s Report, should make their
report. Mr. C. made a most humorous
speech, which elicited the applause ot the
meeting. Mr. Monroe defended the resolu- ;
tion, and urged its passage, lie defined his
position in regard to the Company, aud 6aid
he was acting for the good ot tho Company, j
and for the interest of the city which ho rep
resented. Mr. M. said he had offered the
resolution at the suggestion of the Chairman,
and other warm friends of Manassas.
Mr. Boswell made a personal explanation,
stating why and luw* he desiied the retulu- !
tion to be offered.
Mr. E. C. Marshall had no objection what
ever to the passage of tho resolution, lie
was anxious that the Stockholders should |
have all the information in the possession of
the Board of Directors. It was their right, .
and he hoped they would demand it.
Mr. Dencale thought tho resolution unne* j
eeseary. The President, who was present,
Could, and would w iilmgly, as he had suid, j
give all necessary information. He hoped
Mr. Monroe would alter his resolution to
V it >* • v ti v w »•
Mr. Monroe said he was willing to alter
the resolution to as to call on the President
for the information wanted.
Mr. J. 11. Carter objected, in toto, to the
passage of any resolution of the kind until
the meeting haJ heard the resolution of the
Committee, &o. Mr. C. was frequently in
terrupted in the course of his humorous re
marks, by applauso and roars of laughter,
called f-rth bv his witty allusions.
Mr. Monroe, at the suggestion of Mr. Re
noale, changed his resolution, so as to read
as follows :
7iYoW<W, Tiiat the President and Directors
of this Company, be requested to ioforai ibis
meeting what amount o! the bonds and otter
securities ot this Company have been hy- '
pothecated or pledged, lor what cons.dera- •
tion, and on what terms the same are now i
held. . I
Mr. Marshall explained tho object for
which tho Committee cu the Reports of ilie
President, &o., had been appointed. It was
not an Investigating Committee. There were
uo charges against tho officers of the bom
piny, nor were any insinuated —the Commit
tee was morelv to condense from the reports
i of the ifticers the important subjects eou
iieoted with the interests ot the Company,
and bring them before the meeting for ac
tion thereon by the Stockholders, lie, there
fore, thought there ought not to be any op
position to the adoption of the resolution.
Mr. M. then went into an explanation of the
difficulties under which tho Company now
labored. The debt of the Company had
grown out of the necessity of completing the
road to Strasburg. As soon as the financial
condition ot the country had improved, the
i Hoard tff clod a loan; arid finding the road s
j to Strasburg failed to command the trade of
i the Valley, the same object made it necea
| wary to bring the line into use as far as
Woodstock. With the completion of tho
road to Strasburg occurred the financial cri
sis of 1854, which brought State stock sud
d’uiy from £108 down to of course,
leaving no market for Railroads Ronds, ex
cept at ruinous rates.
The Roard were compelled to run the
Company into debt. It was better to pay
high rates of interest, than to sued by all its
creditors, which would have been the case.
Mr. M. denied that the Loud un Rranch had
been the cause of any difficulty whatever—
| on the other haod, it had been sometimes of
■ iidrontniTa
UIUVU MU I
l»y request, Mr. Monroe withdrew his re
solution, until a cull should be made ou tbo
Committee to return the Reports to the meet
ing
Mr. l>eoea!e then moved that the Commit
toe return to tue meeting the Reports of the
President aid accompanying documents.
Mr. S. T. Stuart, ol fair fax, opposed tRo
resolution ol Mr. Reieale. lie thought tl e
pr cet'dings unparliamentary and hoped the
! meeting would proceed in order and act so
j that when they adjourned to-night, they w ould
! k tow when to begin in the morning.
Mr. Hiram Martz hoped Mr. Mouroe’s reso
tion would be adopted. Ho was ready and
willing to give all information and he desired
a searching investigation into all the affairs
of the Company.
Mr. J. H. Carter, Deneale, Stuart, and oth
ers explained their positions and agreed to
agree, in all subjects as they had heretofore
: done affecting the interests ot the company.
* The remarks of these gentlemen caused much
! laughter and created g^od feeling,
i A motion to grant leave to the Committee
on the Report* to set again was adopted, and
then ou motion of several gentlemen, at l*1}
o’clock, the meeting adjourned uutil yester
day morning, at 11 o’clock.
The stockholders assembled at 12 o’clock,
l yesterday, but the Committee to w hom hud
' been referred the President’s report and ac
companying documents, not being ready to
report, on motion of I. L >uis Kinz*.*r, ibe
meeting adjourned until 7 o’clock, P. M.
Befoie the motion to adjourn was put, Mr.
Mooroe submitted to the meeting, for their
consideration, the following proposition:
| “The undersigned,believing the completion
of the Manassas Gap Road to Mount Jack*
| son, in the county of Shenandoah, will great
ly eu large the receipts of the company, by
attracting and accommodating a considera
ble aiiuuut of freight and travel, now lost to
1 c-umpaoy, and the sum required for that
purpose by private subscription, as shewn by
the Engineer’s report, amounting only to the
sum of $50,0Ul), hereby agree to subscribe
the sum opposite our names, upon the follow
iufT conditions, viz • first, that no portion of
stud subscription shall be called for, until
the whole amount of £50,000 shall have been
subscribed—the same when paid to be ap
plied by tho President and Directors of said
company to said completion, and for uo other
purpose whatever.”
Os ’Change.—The attendance on ’change
yesterday, was large, and there was more ac
tivity manifested than we have noticed for
some time. The offerings of flour and grain
were large and all disposed of. Prices had
an advancing teudency.
Washington and Alexandria Railroad.
—The Star of yesterday afternoon says: —
“We learn to-day that tho track has been all
relayed, except about a mile, which will bo
completed so as to allow the parage of trains
in about fifteen days. The road is to be in
first rate order, and it is expected that a
brisk travel will, during the coming winter,
repay the heavy outlay which has been occa
bioned by the repairs.
Religious Services.—To-morrow, Novem
ber 1st, is celebrated by the Catholic Church
as the Feast of All Saints; it was formerly
called “All Hallows,” whence came the de
signation “Hallow Eve,” applied to to-uight.
Various superstitions concerning the detec
tion of true lovers were associated with it by
the damsels of yore; and we are not quite
suio that they are yet forgotten by all the
young ladies.
Monday next is “All Souls’ Day” conse
crated to tho memory of departed friends,
in New’ Orleans, and oilier places where
French customs prevail, tho cemeteries aro
adorned with flowers, lights are kept burn
ing about tho tombs, and thousands of per
sons are seen kneeling in prayer arouod the
resting places of their departed friends.
The Georgetown correspondent of the
Washington Star says:—“The difficulty ot
making change among retailers is daily be
coming greater; and we fear that, unless some
arrangement is soon made tj relieve them
of the difficulty, in part at least, the peo
ple generally will eventually be tempted to
adopt the same very objeotiouable course
which our neighbors of Alexandria have.,;
County Cot rt.—The November Term of
the County Court Commences on Monday
next. The Ma gistratea are Turner Dixon,
[>. .1., J. C. Moore, Wesley Carlin, 1 Buck
ingham and ihos. Smith.
Oysters.— Mr. F. Keys sent us again ye^
