We regret that in th i , hurry ot correct in proof, some trrors crept into the nrst chapter, one m particular, the spelling of "aurora hor- lis." The intelligent reader will de tect soeh inaccuracy, but e regret them. Our fr.end "II. 1. J." is quite right when he ventures to suppose that onr columns are open to all on the railroad question, whether inside or outside of onr private views. We think all ques tions ought to be examined. To do so, the press should be free. We have cur notions about railroads ; but they may bo wrong, and are therefore the sal -jett of fommeat. No well written ar ticle on the subject, be its views what they may, will be rejected, even if abusive of onr-elves. Democrats can have but little choice, we should think, between Si ill rz, or fiOAf, or IlK.iitERso, or any other rad ical, for the Senate. They are al! off the same bolf, so far as the main issne, though Hr.-NPttisoN may have the ad vantage of decency, and one good act. !nt Le is not to be trusted, lie is not worthy of cunfi bmce. Drake is at Jefferson working hard to beat the Herman infidel, Scuta, and lo elect lif.s. Loan. We have but little choice between the men. Many of the papers with which we eX'-bange suk ol the Rodman villainy with disgust. Nm more. If every one of them in the Sta'e, headed by the Kc pu'jlican, would demand hit expul sion from place, or his dead carcass on ' the gatloAs, it woiiM be more manly, and at the same timo more likely to ; have at effect on the old sconndrel.

The House was temporarily organ ized by the eleet ion of Mr. I.ai iiiii.in of Valine, as npeaker; mid CoLBV of Greene, as temporary clerk. The fight for the speaker.-hin is very i fierce, and quite bitter. Jftferson Davis.

The act sustains itself, us a matter of course. If Mr. John son had no power to jrunt amnesty, of course he would not have done so : but he has granted pardons, at separate t i tines, to ail, aim none have oljccte 1, because they had no right to. Upside this, it lct9 tho radical parly out of a a dilemma that the leaders have fell and foarcd, and hence this procrasti nation. Most of tho leaders felt that, if Mr. Davis were ever tried on the charge nf treason, he would s acquit, ted, and tho rght of secession be thus established, and to avoid a decision so nsasirous to mongreiisrn ami mnn archy, so killing to democracy the pro C:. .nation of the knowingones saved the party irom tkis additional disgrace, Mr V.,, ,., hl9 frUfTt,u MVarcd the issue ; and we doubt whether th great statesman would not to-day rath er the matter in controversy had gone to adjudication, that a principle, well settled in most Southern and New Knland mini's, might have been eith er established or so presented as to have been better understood. The trouble on the Ogecchee, in fieorgla, has been quieted, but i ot be fore the United States soldiery was called in. We are not going to say what the trouble originated about, or which of the j a-ties are in tbe r ght. It may have teen one or the other, or even both. I'ut, be that as it may, the trouble only shows the two descrip tions of people, with the thieving carpet-baggers, cannot live together in harmony. We have seen a cage of animals -together, in which- several kinds, supposed to be antagonistic, t on-, sorted in apparent happiness. I'.ut the experiment of reducing the white man to the standard of the "colore gen tleman," or elevating the "colored gen tleman" to that of the educated white man in the same society, will fail, as fail it ever should. It is a pity the negro is misled by it. The white man is not, any further than he may steal. Our neighbor does ourselves, and his reader, the justice to copy our article in legard to the old rullian Uoo.ma.n, and asks-"Anothcr rebellion, brother! .. , I Ji i.ian." les, matter for another rebellion, and riirhtful matter too, something like the last, urged to pre vent such incarnate scoundrels as Rod man and his friends stealing from the people. In the last, the villains only desired to steal tie nigger, n w they desire to steal his master. The whole pack, from Ropman down, ought fo lie hanged, together with those who justify such outrages upon com mon decency and common law. The ex parson speaks of the people as the rebellions, lle is too blind with abolition meanness to Fee the rij;ht, or to know the difference, between the rebellious and those registered by law. ft-a.ft The condition at the South is by no means i-ettcrcd. In Virginia, the peo ple are disposed to buy the franchise from the robbers in authority by grant ing it to the negroes, a policy at once scicidal to tbe State and its people, and one which, we hope, tho grand old State will never yield.

A little further on, we met a small boy; we putted bin. on the bead; asked him how old he was; said he was a hice little hoy, and gave him a dime; boy looked pleased; asked him if he didn't want a nice little doggie; small boy said'Uh! yes; will he catch rats '!"

Of all the days in the week we like Sunday best, especially here in noisy old St. Louis. Yesterday was one of the most quiet, peaceful days we ever passed. In the first place, the day was beautiful, warm, sunshiny ; and, last and lest, an almost death-like quiet pervaded the city, which was peculiar ly acceptable to us, after the din and commotior. incident to Christmas holi days. The churches were all well at tended, and out wardly, at least to all appearances, the citizens leturned thanks to a fenetii ent in.aven for bless intrs bounteously bestow cJ last year, and for tbe brilliant pro-pects of the new year. NKW !iKS. A late work by Mrs. i;. ). K. N. Southworth is receiving some pretty sharp criticisms here, by some of our reviewers. The ladv is styled fcv some of the Kasiern papers the oueen of American writers. One of our St. L uis n viewers calls her an "ignorant pretender, wh. has neither talent or merit sufficient K've her either equality with, or superiority over many other American writers." We shall not express an opinion, especially at tiiis critical moment, when the pn of tho reviewer is suspended like an aven ging swurd over our own unprotected head. Ye, we have laid our own of fering, "Marie's Mistake," upon the altar of American literature, and stand aside, calmly iwaiting the scat hmgs ami darts ot criticisms which will he 1 launched at us, while we laughingly cry out, "Mr. Reviewer, we don t care what you say about our book :" Yet, oh ! tbe quiverings of a sensitive heart, an author's he-.irt.

"W." wishes to make; and if any have been misled by Lis demagngism, simply to itsfer them to the record of the county court to set them aright in the matter. The first statement ot M r. "V."thvt i.eedu correction is, that "the people of this county voted the ?;"Mj,0o0 with the i under-la iding.hat, the road"woHld he j run somewhere near the centre f the j county." Every intelligent man read irg from that statement, not knowing the facts, would infer that the Louisi ana & Mo. l. II. is to built out of the funds arising from the saie of bonds to be issued by our conutv court under Itistl'UctloIis Irom the Iieolile. who voteif tho SoOO.000 in Mun h hi,t. The ! statement is as far trom the facts and the truth as it couid well be male. It tie "outraged people of Lalavette " of! whom Mr. "W." assumes to he the oracle those "who so liberally opened their purses" are to be robbed of your just duos by a few monied mn of" the county yon, who are to be galley slaves to bankers and merchant men of the river villages you, who5e children arc te toil through long years nf scorch ing fin ami i hilling wind, to defray a tax placed upon j ou by a few caj ftal ist-; if they will examine the reoor-r? f tbe county court, thev will rind that the picture of the alluring sum prop! esic 1 by "W." ibut a scare-crow; tim h it the n.)oo.oo(j vot! conditionally bv the people in March has been abandon -d, and not a dollar can nor ever will be issued. Not a dollar, Messrs. Kditors, has been or ever will be issued tor the con struction of any railroad whatever tinder the voto" in March last. If Mr. "W.'s" local interest of the county, the interests of the dear people which he seems to Lave so inucb at hears, ex tended beyond his own quiet holds and herding grounds, he certainly would have sought the nei essary ii formation from the archives of tbe county; and, while these statements of his are calcu lated to inflame one neighborhood against another, before he entreats tbe "honorable county court to satisfy the people of Fre dom township lhat we are again butn national, state a .d county, he should so demean himself as tc assure us that the people of La lavette are one neighborhood, town ship and county. ihc facts hi regard to the very com meniiai ie action of our county court, in the railroad matter, are as follows ; By a vote of the ( opie on the 14th Novcmbei, liy, the county court was dueeU'd by the people to issue 500,000 in county bonds, t u be appropriated in the construction of a railroad from Lexington to intercept the Pacific rail road, lne win k as commenced and prosecuted under the corporate name of Lexington & St. Louis railroad com pany until! lhe outbreak of the w-r.and at that time was abandoned, and suit was commenced against the company for work and materials furniahed, and an execution was obtained for the amount demanded. No bonds were ever issued, the county court being re strained from the issue under an in junction from the Supreme court. From the commencement of the war until the last year, this old road was reckoned -mot.g the "tilings that were," and so soon as that grand project of a great railroad thoroughfare was inau gurated, from Louisiana on the Mis souri river lo Kansas City, symptoms of vitality were exh.bii.ed in the rem nants of the old road. March 7th, 1GVS, tbe county court of Lafayette county ordered : 1. Shall the county of Lafayette sub scribe SoOO.yoO to the capital stock of a railroad running through the comity? 2. In what railroad cotnpajy shall the subscription be m:ule ''. ii. The company securing tho great est number of votes shall be tho com pany in w hich the slock shall be sub scribed. The court to throw around said amount such restrictions as in their judgment will secure the building ol the road. This action of the. county court re vived symptoms of vitality in the old road, and when the people voted tho subscription to the Louisiana & Mo. River R. R., the old Lexington & St. L. R. R. Co. was organized, and suffi cient lodgment in law was effected to enable them tn procure the issuing of a writ of uiandauiu on our county court requiring 'hem t s.ie the bonds to the Lexington &. St. Louis 11. 12. as directed by the vote of the people, Nov. 14th, l.SV.t, for SoOO.OOO, with interest. The mandamus was sustained before the court of common pleas of the coun ty, and tbe county court was ordered to issue the 000,000 in bonds, with the interest accruing thereon, amount ing to 240,000, to the Lexington & St. Louis R. R. Co. From the decision of tho court of common pleas, our county court ap pealed to the supreme court. From the contumely of men and law's delay, the friends of railroads almost despair ed of ever building one soon in the county, knowing, as they did, the long, harassing tedious c ui-se in law before judgment. A compromise was effect, I cd, however, bet ween the county court, 1 ,lic, Louisiana & Mo. River R. "it. Co., : ail(1 thc Lexington St. Le R. R.

What benefit will Mr."W." accrue from two roads running on the same track, when so great a benefit can be deriv. 1 from it by making two in stead of one, and at the same cost to the county ? And the unkind, ungenerous and un grateful allusion to our public spirited, intelligent, discreet, and honored coun ty court I will sity to Mr. "W." that the intimation of selfishness comes with a bad grace from him. Sir, a more in sinuation is more damaging and deadly than the terrible reality; and if he in timates self-aggrandizement or politi cal bias in the official acts of any memj ber of the county court, the people are ready to rise as one man to declare the accusation false. In this railroad matter, amidst the conflict of intercj-ts between townships atid communitta, the growlit gs of selfish and ane-ideaed men, the court has well nigh passed the ordeal, and i has tar they have proved themselvn the safeguard and bu warks r . i i . . - ......

The progressive spirit ot the hour has infused public sp.nt in the masses, and the people seconding the actions of the court, cotemporaue ous with the birth of their public en terpr's in the county, the railroad era h is bciun,and in longye.irs each inspir i ig w 1 istle of the locomotive will be but the people's echo rejoicing over this hour, this day, this year.

As soon as that hope departed, there no longer was, and never had been,. vacancy. The logic is decidedly radi cal, and not at all democratic.
