There is no doubt, that with a bridglg over the mansh awar I.. e Tame, atnd OmIover Bay .u SClair would tend tol enhance the bulanes of this town many thousands of dollars. Why with the knowledge of the beefits that w..uld follow this Iha not long ago been done, is an enigma we are not prep tre to solvelw. The people of these respective srighb'rho ds are anious to do, their trading here; and, it snems to us that self-late est shoull fiod a way to offer them means to do o. Ewvry year trade which pr'perly belongs to ua. iq being diverted into other channels, and no f feot is made to cheek it. The fact is palladle that business is a:ot increasing with us; itf we are not retrograding we are not advancing; and, worse than all, our neighbors are prospering-if we can judge by surface inlicatiols. Now, to regain, what is ours, we must open p all avenues to afford full egress and iagress to and trom this town; we must take oil chances ofebring and make the moea of our opportunities. The state of lethargy and apparent indifference must be east asid'., and, every one must lts for the betterment of things. - tinsville, by her admirable situation and surrouudliugs should be one of the must prosperous towns in the at ,te and yet will be, It the people will but awake to their true interests A Little Money In It. In its last imsue the Messenger adver ted to the positive iacouveaoence expe riseeml by pasengers taking the loeal trala hereto meet the west bound train at Cade' Station, occasioned by the long wait at the lItter place. And when We demaminated the eoadition 0t things an eutrage, we but voiced th. sentiments of the trav.ll g public, and, also, of the greater part the people of this town, whe, recognime fact that they are receiving that tr eut they have rem ren to expect. We yet hope that this matter will be forcibly brought to the attention of the railroad magnates. when we trust, the eourse of complaint will be removed. Now, in the interib we sug gest that one of the livery stables at this place start a hack line between this town anl Cad'. The distance is bet seven miles. Let the charge be, say fifty crnts, and we believe they would make a little money. For, passengers, in every instance, would prefer taking a convey ance which does not compel them to wait over three bours "in a desert. During the summer months the roads are In fine traveling condition, and as the sta blesare not doing more I usines than they can conveniently attend to, even an average of three passengers a trip would pay.

Judge Gates answered that his acquiesemece in the suggestion weuld practically be a eoues ion of the truth fuineeo of the charges against him, and intimating that he s m re than willing that the Courts pae upon the isues la voved, in as mueh as he ezp etas to bring to light matters which he would like people to beenme acquainted with. to asp the elimax, a it were, concludes as follow,: " Awaiting the actions of tM Courts permit me to quote the saying a celebrated Freanch Marshal: J'y j'y reste."
