We mrst, flrmly believe that those branch rends (to Bristol and Kuoxvillo by way of Climhrrlaiid tian) will do innre to build lip the prosperity til L"ttisville than even I he rrjKlu stem ot the I,ninviio and Ntslivilb railroad has hrretofoie done, which the wisest utn have often xcl iiincd ws in. ralcnlablH. Those branch marls will Indeed he to Louisville wht tho B.ltnnnle nnd O'dn Railnmd his been to the ritv nf IUI timnre. That rnsd has nude Baltimore what, she Is to-day a prmid city of four hundred thousand inhabitants, with her commerce extending to every psr of the habitable globe, while, we know, before said mad was constructed said city contained ls than one hundred thousnnd penplr, with comparatively little cotnmcrco. What has made the town an prosperous of lae years f We answer th B , It i more and Oiiio railroad. The wealth of the country through wblcb our Bristol and Knojtville roads are to pass ts untold, and c.iiuiot truthlully lie porirsyed, as the greater pirt of It still lW-s undiscnvered, and hnried in the bowels ,t onr mother earth. Iron, cnnl, lead and timber of almost every kind abound in East Tennessee and Southwestern Virginia. Those part of the States are great corn, wheat, bay and cotton prnvflng countries. In fact the country abounds In wealth and overflows with milk and honey. By running ryer the map and studying the distances, yon will at onco perceive that, II we pni feet our Bristol and Knox vllle branches through Cumberland G ip, we save over three hundred miles of tr ivel to Norfolk, and bring the city within 714 miles of Louisville, which, at the slo rate of twenty miles per hour, would make tis with Inthirty-six hours of that grand old city, which Is stated by a gentleman well n rwil in Its advantages to be ' the great central seaport of the Atlantic; niidmay between the Canadss and the Wi s' Indies; on the finest, most convenient, silo and rapacious harbor on (lie continent ; open at all periods of the year ; "accessible Irom any p iltit, with any wind, and better calculated for a in pliiy tr.vle than any linrhorin the world. Now, of that railmad connection we have only from Mount Vernon I the State line, via Cnmberlnnd Gap, to complete, and our portion of tho contract will be fnlllHed. M"st of that gap, from Crab Orchard to L Bdon, which is a frsction over forty-three ni'les, is slrendy finished, of which Mr. Gen. Maclenrt ( hief engioeerj s'a'es the sc'usl cost will not exceed ( 1 2riO,0()lh Ilo says that the location from London to the Ten nessee line has not vet been formally ac cepted and adopted by the Board of Dkoo. tors. It will sntlice to say that the surveys show a more favorable line in every respect than that between Crab Orchard and Lnn don. The dis'ance is 44 miles, nuking total distance from Crab Orchatd 87 miles, and1 from Louisville 202 miles. We can, by energy sn t perseverance, flnih our road tn the ken! nek y Siatn I n via Cuinbt'i land Gp In sixteen months, and if either the Knoxvile or liiisml branches guarantee to meet us, we should urge and firen the Nashville Railroad Company tn carry out their contract with the city id Louisville, aud make that road astiuickly as possible After pointing out bo advan'agea tore suit fioio tho connection wi:h Knoxville, the rommltloe recur to the connection wiih Bristol, and say t Tho distance and tune saveil ti paen. gers aud Ireight g iing toward Richmond, Washington and Norfolk by rnmploting the Bristol In nnch la even greater than that ot Knexvill", because iho riilrnad line is All lighter and the rout" nmro diree4 . Bv tiulnhli g tti ,t I nk, we will he wi.biii 714 lin es ! N r'nlk, that i 3fi7 lllih s in ul' l' ihaii it, is to N' W York, in. re than SO miles nt an r th in Bi liinore, and more than HO miles nearer I nan Washington city by the iesent rou es ove tho Northern roads. Will not these ailvnitsg s inevitablv f,,re" all the Soiuhern travel over our id ami make it t'n grand Sniithern trunk road f Will not its comple'lnti do more to build hp the prosperty or 1 iuisviiim man inn n. k (). K. R. did to build up the ci y uf Bit liuiore. The disiain-e from New York via Norf Ik and Knoxville, sfirr the completion of the KmixviIIh branch, will be the same as the distance tiom New York to Nashville, anil should the Lebanon branch he rxii nl' d In Bristol instead nt to ICnoxville, the d-slauce would he reduced 84 miles. Trn-se facia wolld indicale that we could establish a great freight line between I.olli.vdle and New Ynra via Norfolk, and transport goods tietwceo these two cities lit lower lates than they rouUl be brought from New York tn Cincinnati. From the prueut crowded condition of the four trunk lines com e- tmg tne East with the Northwest, and miistdor ing the rspldly increasing development ol the resources of tho Northwest, we may reasonably concludn that tho four great trunk lilies will soon be able tn carry ail the freight. Have wo not shown from tie above nutations, tuken from men skilled in railroads, and who hsvu -tade the interests of railroad lift-long study, that these g-e it eon'rmplsted lines and rhains of rail mads will be of incalculable advaiilag-to Louisville, and do more to build up hur wealth ami prosperity ths airytbirg that hsi yet been done or contemplated. We aliunsl saiit that absolute neceselty, the lUuther of Invention, demanded these con. ueclions. They must and they will be in tte. Our inottn and our hope are in s them an acconiplislied act fight spe dily. D i yon not consider it our duty lo ne onr utmost endeavors to urge and lend asaitance to the Lmiisvil'e and Na-sville Company to piih onward lo n ra- ly compleilon of these mds. Kit becomes nee-sssiy, will not out- viiv lathers pl-dgo her credit to build them iiuickly ? You all remember that we pss-ed sn ordl liaucu some two jesrs aao to give 1 (It) i.odii io the Louisville ami Nashville company to .-.i.i ilo.iii Iu liiii'ilin this CunihiTl ami Gp railmad, and It was t ibmi'ttd to the people, atid ihey, bv a tremendotts Tote, ratified what we had done. Last year 81 50,tl()0 of that money was paid by our Treasurer to the Louisville, and Nashvlll Railroad Company. This year the railroad company said ihey did not desire the tax tn b paid, and' our tlnancn committers tlioight. it well to omit, owing to the in creased t ix Imm other sonrct s. We hope ihst our instalments will hereafter be pnnc. tually iald, snt not thrnngh (also notions nf economy Im withheld, beciuise onr con Iruct with the Louisville and Nashville rail rose! compels them so soon as the money Is paid to puh onwuid tho i ntension of their Cumberland Gap rs'lio-ul without, Inter ruption.

We believe not, slid therefore in conclusion wil' offer the following resilmions and Insist Hint both Boirds of the General Council will sd"pt them eiihnnt a diss-titing voice : K' solved, Fit at That it is the senso of the Board if Aldermen and Common Council nt the city of Louiville, that the Knoxville and Bristol branches of the Louisville and Nashville railrosd should b losteied by said city and be pushed onward tn a speedy cotnple' ion.

It would be extremely tin. fiirlunate if a choice should lie made that ni ght tend to magnify their lears and chill their returning hopes of quality and res pect. The tenderesl regard and the most enlarged and liberal policy should at once be manifested towards these people. Our government is lo ho maintained by Its jus tice aud capacity to protect and uphold the rights aud interests of all its citizens, ruth, rr th 'ii by its power to subdue and punish. Its supei ior merits must be so excited as to win the love and devotion of its citiz 'ns, The people are satisfied with Gun.

All the iiues io'is Cilctil"t"d tn shock tho public niiiel Mi I distract the people have been s -ttled. The country generally has acquiesced in the result. It is no' probable now that anv subj -ct calculated to mar the general tendency in peace will arise during the romii'g administration. The function nf the administration w ill be tn reconcile ho disaffected ami. encourage tho despond ing by ils broad patriotism and national libresbty. I believe 1 can safely assure the (ountry that Gen. Grant will endeavor to inert the just expectation of those who reully love their government in reference io bis policy and character. As to the mlicy of impartial MiflVagn which has been svownlf.ir the Soiiili by the pufy that elected Gen. Giant tu the I'ri-sideiicy, and the massot it is commit. led tn manhood snfl age, I cannot doubt tha' be will exert big iiilluence to secure an amendment of the constitution providing for universal still' age. The nihject of uni versal still, age is but the wink of time. In a short period it will be tin question helore thu country. It Is no longer a prsc t'cal issue. No man nnw supposes that iln ro will be either trials or punishments 'or offences coiii'iiii ted during the war. Toe work of amnesty may n w be considered as reduced to those nlrec'ted by the operation of the third section of the lotirteeuth arti cle of the constitution. Congress lias the bower to relieve these, and must in a short lime, prrfir m that work. I dn not doubt that Gen. Giant would f ivsr Mich an niendmcnt ot the c institution if any good would result lion it. The pardoning power Is properly an rx eciliU'e one, an l should never have been disturbed. 1 rannnt but regard any inter ference with the power a-sij-ned by Iho framers of the Constitution tn the various Departments as ex'remely dangerioos to the safety of the g ivernment. The examole set bv Mr. L'ticoln and lollowed by Mr. Johnson, has commanded the approval of ihe civilised world, anl will secure the favorable verdict of posterity. Tim Presi dent elect will rot set aside a joncy so co'i'iisti'iit with the present age.

Ihe Asmssin before the Mayor. HE 13 ADMITTED TO BAIL- We clip the following from the RichmonJ. 117. : Judga Ould asked the Mayor if he In tended to admit the prisoner to bail.. Thu Mayor I am ready to hear a motion for bail. Judge Qjild We do not desire to make a tnoiion ior bail, but leave It entirely to your Honor's judgment tu do what yon deem proper In the matter. The Mayor thereupon admit'od the ac cused to bail in the sum of $111,0110, Mr. Wm. K. Watts becoming bis surety in that amount. lie left tho court-room with his counsel, entered a carriage, and was drlveu to his father's residence ou Clay street, between Tetitli and Kleveutb. After the case had been disposed of and the parties had left the court, Mr. E. A. Pollard made his Bppearance, and stated to the Mayor that he had been taken wholly by surprise by what had occurred ; that It, had been his intention to bo represented by counsel in the investigation of the r ise, but ascertaining that the gentleman whoso services be desired to secure was absent from the city, and being informed that the proceedings in ibis court would be merely pro Jiirtnt, and uot supposing that the ( Host ion ol bail would lie raised, be had ailed to obtain the advice and assistance be desired. Ilo furthermore stated that sines his arrivall in the city certain facts had come to his knowledge which bad an important bearing upon the case and which bo deemed essential to havo considered be lore decisive action was taken tiy the May. llj would be able to prova by two witnesses, who overheard tho conversation, that Mr. Stover, a frieud of the Graut fam ily, had called upon his brother, at his house, on the night before the publication t the piper, and endeavored to prevail upon t ji not t publish the article. His brother said to him that the press had Dev. er felt the least delicacy about puhlislnrg anything in regird to members of his fami ly, and drsggid them all remoraely befote the public, and bad never considered It wrong to pillorr their names in lull when ever there was anything with which runio' remotely connected them ; and this course on the part ot the public ana press Had completely soured him, and be had deter mined to spare none In tho future who should la' themselves liable lo pnhlio cen sure or cr ticism, "You may tell Mr. Grant however," said he, " that I will publish any explanation he rr.ny choose to make, wilh. out a single alteration, no matter what he may say ;. but I have fairly examined (be facts in the case, find they warrant the pub. lication, and I will not suppress it." This conversation was oveihead by a lady in the house and another person. His brother did not bear anything further from the Gram family. In view ot these facts be requested the Mayor tn reconsider Ins decision. The Mayor replied that ho would give Ins witnesses anil counsel a bearing lo-uior row at ten o'clock.

The more 1 see of the world thu more I am convinced lhat sinipliciiy is uot more the inevitable accoinpniiiiii-ut of true genius than It is of true greatness. I never yet knew a truly great genius w ho did not possess a certain playful, almost childish, simplicity of character. Truo greatness, never stmts on stilts, or Uys the king upon the Btsgo. Conscious of lis elevation above, ttarcsiof mankind, siul knowing iu what lhat elevation coosists, it ia happy tn take its part in the cotnmoo amusements and business of life. It is not alraJ of being under valued fur its humanity. Of thia class was Chief Justice Marshall. In hit hoiira of relaxation he was as full of fun ami as natural as a child.
