TUursduy iXotiaiii, Jan. 11, lSpc :;- RAILROAD MEETING - rCl Tie" meeting on Saturday but for tbe purpose of calling thoaUcution of ourpeo' pie to the condition of tie C, W. it L. ai, road was not as largely attondod as the im portance of the great Work boforo the raoet--inrr kTiahH Kara secured.' In Doint of iu- flaenco the meeting Was very respectable, ,'f-William McCLERr, Esq., of Grcenfiold township was called to the .Chair, when President Corwin-proceeded to malon statement of the condition and prospects pf the road. ' He stated that there had been already expended on the construction of the road bo t ween liitnoaster ana Aatiesville, a distance of 42 miles, seven hundred thou sand dollars. -That the entire cost of fin ishing the r6au from .Lancaster to the tun nel, twenty-two miles, including grading, bridging, cross ties and track laying--jn-.cliialrig every expense except- the iron Will bo twonty-Gve thousand dollars. That the same? 'front the tUniiel to Zanosvillo, whore the wort ba.s boen. exceedingly heavy, sixty-tnree ttiousana aoiiars; anu that if iron was on hand the tract could be laid to Lexington in six weeks .from this .time, and to Zanesvillo before the first of June next. He stated that iron had azaih fallen from $75 to about 40 per ton, acd that the entire amount of money. yet neces sary to furnish, the iron and complete the ,' road is three hundred thousand dollars, but that with two hundred . thousand . they could go on unitnbarrassed and accomplish the so much desired objoct. . Ho stated tliat the track could be laid down to thc.iri exhaustible coal fields in Perry county in six weeks, where that article could bo ob tained in any dosired quantities at the mere expenso of mining it. lie stated, ;fis an earnest.of what that trado will be to the Company, that the 6mall quantities of Coal I which ar now being carried over tho road ' from LancAstefr, which woro brought there on the Hocking Canal and aro being sent 'off by a few individuals of Lancaster, would, f orvntimini! tlti-mlo-li tlm TMr r.nv tA flirt Company, fifty thousand dollars. : And this tooilthough the coal cars have nil to be taken back empty, a (hirtg that would never oc cur if the road was open through to Znhes Ville. It is a, fact, well known to every - man who' is at all conversant with the pres. cnt state of ttade that all of the roads in the State leading to the eastern, markets arc, and have for months been," crowded with freight to their utmost capnejties,' and are "now several Weeks behind With that busi "nesa. That this road, when completed will have just as. much business, -'both ways tipon it, as it will have capacity to do, and that the. people along the line of it will have the advantage then of the eastern mar Lot for their surplus products, which they have hot now got. . Ho stated that it was positively certain, from what they already .know of the business of the road, that its earnings will, when completed, pay its run 'ning expenses, pay the interest on its debts and divide . annually; at least - twelve por cont. among its stockholders, and that it is the opinion of men well versed in the bus inAsn rmfTV n Oltiii nm in ntltor Rlrtfua thnt. , jn less than two years after the completion of the road to Zanesvillo, both its bonds and its' stock will bo at par. . " :' Ma. Cokwim stated that its a mentis Of raising the amount of money yet needed to completo tho road, the Company ' bnve on hands 8450,000 of second mortgage bonds, " running ten years, which owing to tho un- ' usual stringency of the money1 market,can not now bo sold without great sacrifices on ; the part of the company, which they aro not willing to make. , That thoso bondsaro 'secured by mortgage on. tho whole road, and draw seven por cent, interest, to be . paid semi-annually in tho city of N. York,' ' and to bo - redeemed in ten yearsi . He .ntlllr-ll that, fill tlin nnrnnsA t( rrattl urt fnnflc " i I .0---0 to go on 6peedily with the " work on the road," the Company had concluded to offer so many of them as, will be necessary to raiso the sum of $200,000 to the peoplo a.. long the fine of, the road at seventy-fivo cents on the dollar. Bo th.it.in addition to bo drawn semi-aunUally on them, the hold ers will ut. the end teccivo a premium of 33 per cent; on the stun, which . they had paid. Nor will it be necessary for thoso purchasing thoso bonds to Wait till tho close of the ton years for their money, if they should not desire to do so, for just so soon as this road is completed they can, without doubt, dispose of them at a handsome ad vance on the nrespnt hnRt. Thfl.ne hnnds are given for $1000 each, and, of course, it will require the Bum of 7o0 to purchase -'one of them. " ,','V... , '.-. ' ' PENifsrLVAxtA Governor's ,JUessage. yfm.

' The CommiUee passed a. series of resolutions, .against iuiow-JNothingism. ,Thejr deny that the old political issues are Ail ow Hakd as Usual.

Thero is considerable clamor and good cause for it. about tho groat increase in our taxes. Arid the increase has been very rapid, much moro so than people would believe unless they had made note of the amounts paid upon the same property from year to year; A coricspondent of the Cin cinnati Gazette has done so; and gives the record to the people. He says: Ten years aq;o I built a two and a half story brick house, on fourth, west of t'hira street. The house twenty-four feot front, and nineteen feet deep. The lot is thirtv- four by ono hundred feet; I have paid taxes on this house and lot as follows, viz: - 1846, 1C47, $39,29 . 51,53 54,33 64,79 83,13' 1851. 1854, . 91,24 - 90,89 1843, 1849, 1850, 101,20 169,89 Everything appertaining to this proper ty is precisely in the condition it was in 184o, excepting "wear and tear, of tbe building by teu years service, and its lack of the "modern improvements. The history of this man's case is that of tens of .thousands in Ohio. And yet, wo are told that our taxes are not increased! Tlicso things are becoming insupportable. 5TThe party ia power at Washington is devising ways in whieh to put the sur plus in tlio National treasury out of the way of its opponents.

Foicvvarne'd forearmed, wasJudgo Wil lyand drawing from beneath his hunt ing shirt a horse pistol, he very calmly re joiued! "This'sir, is tho constitution, and is paramount to the law."

The druggist then gave her a small por tion of powdered starch, which she took immediately and walking to the adjacent corner, stood there on the street to die. Some ten minutes elanscd, and there sho. stood and no signs of approaching disso lution. Ten minutes more and she did not feel the least bit like dying.
