Generals Rosecrans and Sedg wick were advertised in San Fran cisco to leave that city on the 12th instant for San Diego, the sea port at the southern extremity of the State of California, there to inaugurate the work on the San Diego and Gila Railroad, and Mr. Seward was also to be present to assist in the ceremonies of break ing ground. Funds sufficient to build the road to the Gila river have been subscribed. This is the beginning of the Southern continental railway line. A com pany, headed by General Fre mont, has been organized East, to begin at Memphis, Tenn., and thence to build a road southwest wardly, through Arkansas and Texas, to El Paso on the Rio Grande, thence across the table lands to the Gila river, and down its valley, or near it, to a junction with this San Diego branch. From the Mississippi river this is a much shorter route to the Pacific Ocean than that of 'the Union Pacific road; and as it flanks the Rocky Mountains and the Sierra Nevada chain it may be built all the way over the Plains. It is also below the re gion of interrupting snows,, and the work of building it and of running it when completed may be continued without the stop page of a day from wintry storms. With anything like the enterprise which built the Union Pacific this Southern road ought to be finish ed within two years, for there will be comparatively little to do in building it, beyond marking out the line and laying'down the ties and rails. When finished it will be the main line for through trav el; but there will be work enough, not only for two continental roads, which will then be in ope ration, but for one or two more. In the building up of a half a dozen new States the Union Pa cific will soon be an immensely profitable line, and so with the Southern Pacific in tapping the undeveloped resources of Western Texas and of New Mexico, and Arizonia, and of the northern States of the Mexican republic, and the vine and olive lands of Southern California, the most productive in the world. In this connection it will be seen that General Rosecrans is in better business thah he would be in running as the Democratic candidate for Governor of Ohio. General Fremont, we believe, is now in Europe raising money for ' the main line from Memphis westward. He only asks the right of way and certain Territo rial lands along the line from Congress; for with these and the liberal grants offered by Texas he calculates upon building the road without further assistance of gov ernment bonds. We think, too, that on this basis the road ought to be pushed through with out difficulty, considering the advan-. tages of the route, the lightness of the work and profits sure to follow.-New York Herald. Mr. Bigelow succeeded the late Henry J. Raymond as editor-in chief of the New York Times. Some of the newspapers outside of that city have taken the liberty of criticising Mr. Bigelow's man agement. They think he has not kept the Times up to its old stan dard. "Minor Topics"-a column or so of short articles-was an attractive feature of the paper under the old reginme. 'This Mr. Bigelow discontinued at the start. It was said that Mr. E. H. House would cease to be the dramatic critic of the Times at the end of last week, and that the dramatic and musical department was to be dropped from the paper, RE-ASSESSMENT OF INCOMES. Commissioner Delano has deter mined to thoroughly sift the in come assessments, and to this end appointed a large number of assistant assessors, whose special duty will be to re-assess incomes. The commissions have already been issued and the work will commence in the large cities im mediately. THE WIDOW OF GEN. IAWLINS -A TOUCHING ROMANCE.-There will be a general feeling of sym pathy in the South for this afftlict ed lady. During the war she resided at Vicksburg, Miss., as a friend in the family of Mr. Lum, a prominent citizen of that place. Her maiden name was Hurlburt, if we remember correctly. She .was greatly admired and respect ed by all of the Confederate offi cers who were visitors of the house. Pleasant and winning in manner, the charms of her socie ty and her manifold courtesies and kindness to all of them will be remexibered by those who were among the many who were cheered by her kindness and ele gant hospitality. Among the throng of her admirers was a brave young officer belonging to Withers' batalion of artilery, C. S. A., who awakened a deeper feeling than friendship in her who was doomed to hear of his death out on the lines shortly afterward, during the last memorable siege. When Gen. Grant, with the late Gen.. Rawlins as chief of staff, en tered Vicksburg, Mr. Lum's house was occupied. Here it was she met her late husband, who touch ed by her great worth and charm ing qualities, subsequently offered himself and was accepted. All the Southern officers who were at Vicksburg will bear testimony to the undeviating courtesy of Gen. Rawlins in his intercourse with them, and his afflicted widow will now have their heartiest sympa thy in her great bereavement. THE Holly Springs Reporter says: "Moses Hopkins, negro, who was appointed route agent on the Central Road, to run between Jackson, Tenn., and Canton, Miss., resigned his position last week. Hie discovered that he was totally incompetent' We have heard of many funny things which he did during his short career. At Hol ly Springs, on his first trip, he threw off several bushels of mail matter that belonged elsewhere. He distributed matter indiscrim inately from Jackson down as long as it lasted. At a depot be low Holly Springs, the postmaster asked him for the mail. Moses replied that he hadn't started with as much. as he thought he had, and had given it all out at the depots above; but he would leave a good sized bag full for him the next time. Moses, good bye; you are better at picking out cotton than you are in picking out letters and papers." THE SOUTH AND COTTON.-A friend of the editor of the Mem phis Appeal, writing from the Rhine, says : Everything connected with the South and that tends to an in creased production of her great staple is matter of vast impor tance on this side, and I. speak the true sentiments of the Eng lish and Continental cotton man ufacturers, with many of whom I have lately come in contact, when I wish this great enterprise God speed. There is no country that can supplant our own South from her position of Chief Cotton Commis sary for the world, provided she can increase her production of the staple, and if she can do so by Chinese or any other kind of cheap labor, crowding out compe tition as well in price as in quali ty; it is manifestly her duty no less than her interest to avail her self of Mr. Koopmancha's propsi tion. Insanity seems to be the lot of a large number of the late Grand Duke Maximilian's associates in the Mexican adventure. Senor Salazar, his ex-Minister, is the la test victim heard of. Were these people actually poisoned by an insanity mixture, as story writers assert? General Sherman's commission as Secretary of War appoints him until the end of the next session of Congress. The law does not prevent him from holding the two offices of General tnd Secretary of War, but he must select which salary he will a tepnt. BEN BUTLER VS. MRS. STOWE. -A case of scan. mag or crim. con. is to Ben. Butler a delIcious tit-bit, a savory morsel. His ex perience and practice at the bar have so sharpened and whetted his legal appetite for this sort of mental pabulum, that he has not been able to withhold his opinion in the Byron calumny, and has rushed into print in four columns of a Boston paper, in which he cross-examines Mrs. Stowe and riddles her story with his rules of evidence so completely as not to leave that elderly female any thing to stand upon. He care fully and ably reviews the char acter of Byron and all the incidents of his life, and proves conclusively the falseness and improbability of her ingenious canard. It has been the habit of Daniel to come to judgment, but now comes Ben jamin, and, wonder of wonders, in the cause of truth 'and morali ty! The report that Butler was seen at a camp-meeting lately, must be true, for his action in this matter is proof positive that he has experienced a change of heart. After all, it can now be said with some show of probability, that "the devil is not as black as.he is painted," for here is Butler in his great, daring act (never before attempted in America) of the Moral Reformer and the friend of innocence. CLEBURNE'S SWORD.-The At lanta Constitution has recently seen the sword which was pre sented to Gen. Cleburne by his old Arkansas regiment, and which he wore at the time of his death at Franklin. It is in the custody of Miss Gay, of Decatur, Ga., the lady who has done so much for the graves of the Confederate (lead in her own State and in Tennessee. The sword is thus described by the Constitution : "It is a very handsome weapon, I with a finely-tempered, flashing i blade, in a handsomely embossed i and carved scabbard, and strange- I ly enough it bears, as the name k and place of its makers, H. Mar- 1 shall & Co., of Atlanta, Ga. The ] scabbard has at the top, on one c side, a carved medallion of Mr. ( Davis in profile, and on the other ' side the harp and shamrock of i Ireland twined together. On the u first ring below the shamrock, t midway down the scabbard, are c the words: 'Maj. Gen. P. U. Cleburne, Presented by his old Regiment, c 15th Arkansas.' t "Below is a carved Major Gen-I eral's insignia-a wreath with 8 three stars, the middle one the E largest, and underneath the let ters 'C. S.,' representing those ill fated but historic words-Confed- ] erate States." - - t THE RIGHT VIEW OF IT.-The < Richmond Whig takes General O. 0. Howard to task for saying, in a recent speech, that slavery had dwarfed the intellect of the Afri- t can race, and we think our con-I temporary has most decidedly got I the better of the Christian soldier i on that point when it says: "This implies that the intellect I of the negroes has been dwarfed since their arrival in this country. This is something new to us. The common impression has been t that on their advent here they t were unmitigated barbarians, many of them cannibals, all of them a very low and unintellect ual type of humanity. All the humane ideas and civilized hab its they now possess were acquir ed here while in a state of slavery, and from their white masters. This. we believe, is the fact, nev er before contested, and still in testible." Gov. Hoffmaan, of New York, has transmitted to the Secretary of State, at Washington, his official certificate that New York has ratified the XVth amendmlent [Mail. Not a bit of it, See his letter in another place. He only senti a copy of the resolutions of the Legislature, as a matter of per sonal politeness in reply to a re quest. There were neither act of the Legislatuse, nor "oflicial noti fication" of an act.-Ez. Rates or.

California papers are received, with full accounts of the recent election in that State. The San Francisco Herald says it was a positivetidal wave, sweeping over the whole coast, and leaving the Radical party stranded and shat tered, so that they can never again enter into the sea of poli tics in California. What is one of the most observable features in the result is that the Radical par ty is broken into small fragnents. In the city of San Francisco it did not emerge once from ta shell,. or show its head. One wing voted the Democratic ticket, of the other wing vast numbeis staid away from the polls. The party cannot in many years re cover such discipline as, will make it effective, without some great over-powering blunder on the part of its adversaries. It has fought its last battle in California for many a year to come; nor will it even regain a sure foothold un til it shall have changed its name and its principles. The Radical Sacramento Union aekno*ledges " very general Democratic vic tory," and the San Francisco Morning Call (Independent) calls it "unprecedentedand overwhelm ing." The State, it says, will now be redistricted for members of Congress. The Sacramento Herald is frank enough to ac knowledge the overthrow of its party. Mrs. Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the editor of the Revolution, speaks of Susan B. Anthony, the publisher of that incendiary sheet, as "the Napoleon of the women's suffrage movement in this coun try." Of such women as these the New York Star says: "Pro fessional gabbists, peripatetic scolds, whose own homes are up side down, whose husbands are either driven to desperation" or led sneakingly by the snuffing nose,-these are the so-called 'Wo men of America,' the agitators, the women lowerers, the women slanders, the women stabbers of New York, in the year of our Lord, 1869. The real workers among women have cause to thank God every day of their lives that women are not in place and do not hold power; not that women ire not competent, but because the best women are elsewhere oc oupied, and the worst women are Ievils in temper serpents in dis guise, mean, cowardly, base and cruel." Severe, but not wholly anjust. The mischief these stron nihded women are doing their sex, all for the sake of money and notoriety, is incalculable. The World does not like Carpet Baggers, and gives them this dig: Where the prey is, there are the vultures. Those impecuni ous vultures that make up the reconstructed government of the South are eager -to have extra sessions of the so-called Legisla tures-in Louisiana and Alabama notably--not that there is any need for such sessions, but merely to get the big mileage and per diem and a chance to finger the public funds. Some little in the shape of taxes has come into the several State treasuries of the South since the adjournment of the so-called Legislatures, and the loll are crazy to seize the same. The Knoxville Press and HIerald says: "Private advices from ýMid dle Tennesee assures us that among dispassionate and observ ing men, the electidn of Antdrew Johnson to the Senate is now a conceded fact." Gen. James B. Majors, of Tex as, has purchased a sugar planta tion on Bayou Courtableau, for $30,000, and will in a short time be a citizen of St. Landry, La. In Cork, the crier of the court, anxious to disperse the crowd around the bar, exclaimed, "All ye blackguards that isn't lawyers, quit the court ." lG en. B. P.
