The Steven'i Sherman Bill.
Doctor John in his last paper says,
that one of the leaders in the "Fishing
Creek Confederacy" is writing a history of
the affair ; and he straightway goes to work
to call the attention of the historian to
somebody else in order to shield himself
from the punishment ho deserves for the
business of hounding on soldiers to oppress
and distress people who were a thousand
In South Carolina, General Sickles has
widenod the range of his duties in such a
manner as to uhow the full effect and mean
ing of the bill under which he holds power
and exercises authority. In April he issu
ed an order overturning all the civil laws
and processes of that State with reference
to the collection of debtx. and instituted in
their place a scries of orders dated from his
headquarters and signed by himself as mili
tary commander. This was a long stride to
wards a full and entire destruction of all
civil authority in the division over which
this officer holds the sword. But it was not
enough. General Sickles is determined that
the people shall feel tho cntiro force of the
Stevens-Sherman bill, as its provisions are
understood by the Radicals, and hence he
interferes with matters which are properly
covered by muneipitl authority, and issues
orders with reference to tho licensing of
inns and restaurants, and decrees regulating
the manner of conducting ths bueineRs of
railroads, Etrectaitagestcamboati'i.
and other publio conveyances. From all
these orders there is no appeal. They niuat
be obeyed. Disobedicnco will be followed
by a military arrest, a trial beforo a military
tribunal, conviction and sure punishment.
In this manner General Sickles aids the civ
il officers in carrying out the civil laws in his
division. ?-H
The manner in which the different com
manders placed over the unrepresented
States havo interpreted the Stevens-Sherman
bill, and their acts done by virtue of
authority conferred by that Radical measuro,
show that the Democrats were right when
they denounced it as a deliberate and deter
mined attempt to destroy a republican form
of government in the South, and creot in
its stead a military despotism.
This is the old trick of the pilferer when

there is to be a "history" in this case.. Per

and spied nothing but what was conjured up
by their own cowardly minds and diseased

really did 'send telegrams to Harrisburg

did this. "When rogues fall out honest

What hat hem done, and tcjun it will le

No great enterprise was evar begun about
which so little has been said and so niuoh
has boon done. , The public have a vaguo
ides that a railroad is boing built from some
where in the Kast to somewhero in the far
ther West than a rail-track has over bofore
been laid but where it boding, or what
route it follows, or where it is to end, we
venture to assert, not one in a thousand can
For a dozen years we havo heard that a
great Pacifio Railroad was to le built, and a
dozen names and a dozen companies, and a
dozen routes from the southern boundary
of Texas to tho northern boundory of Lake
Superior have been urged upon Congress
as the greatest and best means for uniting
the Atlnntio and Pacifio shores. Bubble
after bubble was blown, and each burst in
turn when touched by the sharp point of
practical experience.
The absolute necessity for a Pacifio Rail
road to retain and bind more closely togeth
er tho eastern and western extremes ot tho
continent in ono great United and Pacific
country, the immense cost of government
transportation to its frontier and Rocky
Mountain posts, and the even greater costs
of Indian wars, in a region that nothing but
a railroad could civilize and nothing but
civilization could pacify, tho great impor
tance of opening a road to tho riuh gold and
silver .mines of the Rocky and Sierra Nevada
Mountains, so that the way to the resump
tion of specie payments might bo made
shorter and easier, all these prudential
reasons una uy pressed with such weight upon
Congress, that it determined that the road
should be made. There wero, indeed, many
others: two thousand miles. of additional
territory would be opened for settlement;
vast bodies of land now valueless would be
made productive ; the tide of business and
travel that now winds a tedious and danger
ous wav along tho borders of two oceans,
would be incresed ten-fold ; and how would
the fathers in the East strike hands with
their sons And daughters at the Golden Gate,
if they could only be borne on the wiugs or
the locomotive I
The imperative need of the work was ad
mitted, but it was too vast for individual
enterprfro to attempt, No combination of
private capitalists was willing to risk a hun
dred million dollars in the construction of
2,090 miles of railroad through tho wilder
ness. As the undertaking was strictly na
tional, so no power less thau that of the
nation was sufficient to acomplish it; and
large as the cotst necessarily would bo, tho
expenditure would save a much greater cost
to the country ijut the Uovernmenl did
not wish -to eutcr upon any new system of
internal improvements on its own account :
and its only alternative was to grant its aid
in the most careful manner to such respon
sible individuals of suitable character and
encriry as mieht bo willinc to risk a nortiou
of their private means in the construction
ot the road.
The Company's Charter and Route.
This charter was granted and perfected
by various acts of Congress, and the Com
pany comprises men of tho highest reputa
tion for integrity, wealth, and businc-s ex
perience. Among tho officers aro General
John A. UiX, President, Thomas V. Durant,
Vice-President, and Hon. John J. Cisco,
late Assistant Treasurer of tho U. S.,
The Capital authorized by tho Charter is
One Hundred Million Dollars, of which it
is estimated that not exceeding- Tweuty-
rive minions win oe required, ami oi wiuen
rive Millions have airoadv been paid in
fiiuvr-yiiig pnrtios-wero at outio pushciT
out in various directions across tho eonti-
nent to find and locate tho best available

Pacifio Ocean. 1 his was established at
Omaha, in Nebraska, on the east, and will
una! iv be at f rancisco, in tuliiornia,
on the west a distance ot nearly J.900
miles. Tho Chicago and North Western
Railroad is now completed from Chicago to
Omaha, a distance of Wl miles: and several
other roads are rapidly building to unite
with the union I acme at the same poiut;
so that its eastern connections will 6e nu
merous and complete.
The general lino of the road from Omaha
is wost up the Valley of the great Platte,
and thcnce.aoross the plains a distance of
517 miles, to tho lilaok Hills, or easterly
spur of the Rocky Mountains. Col. Sey
mour, the consulting Engineer, reports that
the grade is much more favorable than was
anticipated the maximum to the Rocky
Mountains not exceeding SO feet to the
mile, and irom that point to the summit, or
divide of the continent, it will not exceed
SO feet to the mile. From tho Rocky
Mountains, the best practicable route will
be taken to Great. Salt Lake City, and thenco
by tho Valley of the Humboldt River to the
eastern base ot the hierra Nevada Moun
tains. The Central Pacific Railroad is now
being rapidly built east from Sawimento,
Cal., and is already completed about 100
miles, and will connect with the Union
What Has Been Done and its Cost.
As we remarked beforo, there has been
very little talk, and a groat deal of work.
Almost before tho public wore aware, it had
been begun. On the first of J anuary, 1 S67,
tho Union Pacilio Railroad was Jinuthcd for
30f) miles west from Omaha, and fully
equipped with Locomotives, Rolling Stock,
Repair Shops, Depots, Stations, &o. and
the Company have on hand, Iron. Ties, and
othor materials, sufficient to fiinish the road
to the Rocky mountains, or 617 miles from
Omaha, by the first of September, 1S07.
It is expected that the whole line through
to California will be comnleted in 1870.
: The first 305 miles were' graded, bridged
ana ironea, witu a neavy r-raii, und suppli
ed with suitable Depots, Repair Shops, Sta
tions, Locomotives. Cars, and all the necus.
ary appurtenances oa first class road, for
$50,000 per mile, and it is believed that the
remaining portion will not increaso tho
average cost to more than 900,000 par milo,
exclusive of eauinmenU.
When the Government determined that
the road must be bunt, it also determined
to make the most ample provision to
render its speedy construction beyond
1st The Grant op MojfEr. Tho Gov-
be rendered to the Government during that
period will coustituto a sinking fond suffi
cient for their redemption at maturity.
2d. Tub Fihst , Mobtoaqb Bonds.
The Government permits tho company to
issue its own Mortgage Bonds at the same
time, and on tho same terms, and for the
satno amount, aud by special Act of Con
press these boiids of the Company are made
a FiUst Moktoaqb on the entire line und
property of the road, tho Government bonds
leinn subordinate. Tho amount of these
Bonds to be issued by the Company is lim
ited to an amount equal to those issued by
the Government to aid in the construction
of the road.
3d. Tub Land Grant. While this is
certainly munificent, at tho same time it is
ruost advantageous to the Government,
for without it, all its own lands would re
main almost worthless. It is a donation of
every alternate section for 20 miles ou each
side of tho road, or 12,800 acres per mile,
and umounts to 20,032.000 acres, assuming
the distanco from Omaha to the California
Statu lino to bo 1,505 miles. Much of this
land, especially in tho Valley of tho Great
Platto, is a rich alluvium, and is considered
equal to any in tho world for agricultural
purposes. Hon. 11. D. Mansfield, tho
learned Commissioner of Statistics for tho
State of Ohio, estimates that at least 9,400,
000 acres will bo available to tho Company
within a modorato length of time, and that
it is far within bounds loestimato this entire
grant at l,50 an aero, or $30,000,000.
The Illinois Central has realized mora than
four times this sum for a similar grant.

This does not take into the account tho
valuo of tho right of way and material, the
stock subscription paid in or to bo paid in
the future, or the present discount at which
the bond i arc offered, us they aro expected
soon to be at par.
The interest on the Bonds is more than
provided for by the net carnincsof tho vari
ous sections of the road, ns they aro comple
ted. Un the .105 miles on which the cars
are now running west from Omaha, the re
ceipts for the first two weeks in May were
H 1 U,00U; and as the road is extended to
wards the groat mining centres, the busi
ness in freight and passengers constantly
increases and as there can be no competi
tion from rival road, the company has full
power to charge remunerative prices.
It needs no argument to show that tho
traffic of the oniy railroad connecting the
Atlantic aud Pacific, and passing thronh
the great mining region, must be -immense.
Although our annual product of the
prcHcious metals is now ofhcially estimated
at J 100,000 per annum, a vastly greater sum
will be obtained as soon as the L'nion Pacif
ic Railroad opens tho way to tho golden
regions of the Rocky Mountains. Now, the
di.'liculties and cost of communication are so
great, that none but the very richest veins
can be worked ; but with cheap transporta
tion, hundred.- of thousands of hardy miners
will successfully develop other mines, that,
with less costly working, will bo oven moro
profitable than the averugo now in operation
and the business of this constantly increasing
minins interest must rmss over this road.
The record of our shipping offices chow
that not less than 50,000 passengers now
annually travel by sea between the Atlantio
rions and San Francisco : and these reckon

a siuyle year, twcniysevcn thousand teams,

If t lie truth (if this statement was uot
familiar to all frontier' s-mcn, it might well
be oucstioncd. But, estimation tho over

that by steamer, aud we have ?15, 000,000

cheap and rapid transit furnished by railroad
always vastly increase the amount of travel
with the same population. The difference
between tho numbers who would tako an
ocean steamer or a prairie wafron and a
modern palaco car, with its luxurious frtatc

ny's Firat Mortage Bonds. Besides, mon
of the greatest railroad experience in the
country have shown their confidence in the
stock by liberal subscriptions, and this
stock must be subordinatetoallothcrclaims.
But there are stronger poofs of the security
and valuo of tho First Mortgage thau any
we have named :
1. That for the safety of the country as
well as national economy the road is indis
pensable. '
2. That by an investment of about fifty
millions in a Second Mortgage on the road,
the Government practically guarantees tho
principal and interest on the first Mortgage.
The Company now offer a limited ainoireji
of its First Mortgage Bonds, bearing six
per cent, interest, payable eemi-anunually
to coin, at ninety per cent. This interest,
at the enrront rate of premium on gold is
equal to nine per cent, per annum on the
Vmce for which thev are now offored. The
Company expects to sell hut a small amount

ri tins rate, woen intj price wm ue raisen,
and like all similar bonds they will finally
rise to a premium above tboir par value.
The subscribers to this loan will uot only
have the advantages of very liberal intorost
and very safe security, but will also have the
satisfaction of .having, assisted in the con-.
struction of tho greatest national work of
the country. . ' '
