THE NEW HOt'HK RI LCK, The country will hear with 8 certain degree of satisfaction that Sieaker Reerl ia deprived of the power of making rules to suit himself or the emergency. After wild despotic indulgence of bis own will without reference to precedent or decency the committee has reported a set of rules, which of course will be adopted. They are practically rule of Mr. Kitd's own forging. They are contrived to set easily upon bis limits, ornamental bracelet rather than restraining shackles, and they are so adapted as to give ex post facto authority to all bis antecedent abuse of power, nevertheless they are rules which the house can adnpt itself under the shadow of authority. The minority knowing its relation to the mn jority can contest what is wrong and op pressive forewarned and forearmed in stead of meeting without concert or pre paration questions suddenly sprung upon them. Mr. Reed's rules (or they n reins, shaped exclusively to suit his ideas are weapons that cut both way. They make him master of the majority as well as of the minority. As the Herald snys: "They cive to the siienker formally what he hus already assumed the power to "count or "discover a quorum; they give to mm instead ot the house thepow er to declare whnt committee a hill shall he referred to; they authorize him to de cide wnat are tlilutnrv uiotions.nnil the authorize him to refuse to entertain tin motions lor a recess and torailjouriimt n to a day fixed. And in nil things, not only iertaining to the government of the house, but in re lation to legislation, tbc siienker has lieu invested with powers that are tremen dous. In view of the measures designed for vast expenditures of the public monies in the enormous proposed immediate in crease of the nnvy, the cost of which if estimated at over $350,000,0(10, in the vast addition to the dependent pension). list amounting to $1,200,000,000, in the provision lor scacoast defences, involving an annuul outlay of $10,000,01 10, in other schemes embracing in their various item $50,000,000 more, all controlled indirect ly by tbe one man power, the people can see what is before them. Fortuuatclv they now know who to hold rcsionsible The time will come when iiiiiiisition will be bad into aluiscs.aml it is perfectly safe to predict what will lie the result of such inquisition. We advise our friends of the 1 lender- sonville Timet to go slow on the subject of precedents. It n very brave to say that "it does not matter whether Mr, Blaine or Mr. anybody else hot estab lished a precedent." It is true that Mr. Blaine, Mr. Garfield, Mr. Banks and other once great luminaries of the repub lican party, are set, or setting tuns; nnd that Mr. Reed isat present in the ascend ant. Once tbe republican party delighted to do all these distinguished men honor and to follow their counsel, now. rushes "to bend tbe pregnant bingea of tbc knee to Mr. Reed." Mr. Reed acts on a temporary policy ; the others on fixed principles; the latter will stand respected while two years hence the other will not hare a defender. The Timet thould not treat precedents with contempt. They arc the essence of the wisdom of pnrlin tnrntary law and practice, at the com Dion law it the unwritten legal wisdom of tbc past aget, or at proverbs are tbr essence of popular wisdom. In free gov ernments precedent ia the restraining power against the encroachment of lib erty, a frnidnble check to the stealing of power from the many to the few. Let tbc Timet cease to look uMin the ques tion in itt relation to a party favorite, and view it in itt broader nspects, as it affects the whole country and all parties, It might not be so pleasant at a future time for a republican congress to lie phy sicked out of the same spoon with which tbc democrats have been doted. Prece dent! then will have another meaning. UKN, riTIHt'UM I.KK Writs Concsirnlnsf Ihs) Hoist ol tbv A A. and as. Railroad. Lixinoton, Vs., January 31, 1800, Mr. Natt Atkinson, Ashcville, N. C. uear Mr; i nave tne nonur to ac knowledge tbc receipt of your communi cation of the 25th Inst., in reference to the proposed construction of a railroad from Atlanta, la., via. Ashcville, N. C. to tome point in Virginia, where desire- blc connections can be made with proposed roads, or with those now in existence. Yon may perhaps know that a com pany hat been organized to build a man ufacturing and industrial city at tbc junction of tbe James and North rivers, being the point of passage of their united waters through the Bloc Rid ire range of noumsina. An eievaten plateau ot some four thousand acre of land with rail road ntxin each of the rivers, as well aa , upon the third tide forming tbe bate of tbc triangle, sat beta purcUaard for the town tit. Ia this healthy and beautiful location arc (nexhanstiblc beds of Iron ore, and other valunbk minerals. There la aa abusaaace of limestone on the spot. Three of the beat sources of furnace fuel apply in America arc within short and easy tang by canaedlng reads, while the ive dams already across tbe water of tbe Is em aad North rivers, now con tro4 by,te ssmpaay, offer great facil i.-. lyj, jsV4-ni -' "''.' m"' ' , Hi.'iiltis'iniiiT st i Vsaii'i'iis " -i..!-vW--J .V.'.-.ai--,'"t;v'i:-i''' . isyi4WJ'll ' v- ities for the development of its water power. I mention all this, because n-company has been organized for the purpose of constructing a railroad from this point via, Lexington to Pittsburg, Ph., having for its object not only the development of the great resources of the intervening country, but to bring the great iron market at Pittsburg in direct communi cation with the furnaces nnd ores of the section bordering the upper waters of the James. tins road would pass tnroiign tne counties ot Kockuridge, until and itign land in Vircinia. and a portion of Pen dleton as well as Randolph, Tucker 'and Preston counties in West Virginia, a region abounding in coul, ores and vir gin forests, and over a country where the whistle of the iron horse was never heard. This proposed railway brings Pittsburg and tbe adiiicent country north, east and west of it, in close union not only with Lexington, where it will connect with the valley branch of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, and Glasgow some twelve miles further south, where it connects with the Richmond nnd Alleghany, or the James River branch of the Chesapeake ami Ohio, and the Shenandoah Valley ruilroad, but with all points south. You can readily understand then, that if this projected road could unite at (ilisgow wun (i roan iium nun niiiu running through Ashcville, .v v... to At lanta, Ga a ninuniumil throiiuli line from the north to the south would be the result. Just at Glusgow such a road could imss through the nine Kidge mountains, liv the side of lames river, and then turn ing south, reach Liberty, in llcdtord county in eighteen miles, then pursuing a southwest course. (Mere imvernur l.cc descnlici the route between Libcrlv, via Ashcville to Atlanta.) 1 estimate the distance from Atlanta, Ga., via Ashcville, N.Cand Libertv, Vu to Glasgow to be M80 miles. From Glasgow via Lexington to Pittsburg, 272 mdes. Total distance ol proposed route from Atlanta to Pittsburg would be Go.' miles. I And by the Travelers Official Guide, edited by'the National Railway Publica tion Company of New York Citv, that travellers can now go from Atlanta to Pittsburg liv one ot the three routes, viz From Atlanta bv the li. T. V. fc G. R. R to Roanoke in olll miles. From Ronnokc to llnrrisburi; via Shenandoah Yallcv and Cumberland Vallev in Mill miles, anil from Hnrrisburg to Pittsburg by the I'ennsvlvania ri'ilroad, in .'oil links, itiiikinun total bv that route of 1on:I miles between these two points. Secondly, from Atlanta by the Pied mont Air Line to Wnxhinglon, I. C. 3HG miles, from Washington via Haiti more nnd Northern Central to Hums hurg, 11! 3 miles, and from llarrisliurg t Pillshuri;, LM'J miles. Total distance from Atlanta to Pittsburg by this route. Ki'.'ii miles. There is another route from Atlanta to Pittsburg, by an unconnected railroad system, via "Western & Atlantic, and Cincinnati Southern, and Pcunsv Ivnuin Company 's line, by which Pittsburg may lie reached in about 7N!i miles. It will tbcrtiore lie seen that a road constructed over the route 1 have intli eated Irnin Atlanta to Pittsburg would lie l.io miles shorter than this last rouu :iliM miles less than the route via Wash ington and llarrisliurg, and 4;il mill shorter than the first route given from Atlanta via Koanokc, etc., in Uremia In other words, a passenger from At Inula could reach Pittsburg in (ilxitit the same lime it takes him now to go to Washington Citv, the distance in the lormrr case being 052, in the latter 057 miles. I am informed that the sections ot Georgia and North Carolina, through which such a road would pass Irom At lanta via Ashcville to tdasuow, is crowded with ores, limlicr and the ma terial wca th. which make railroad enter prises nnv. From GlnsL'ow to Pillshuri: the same conditions exist. A road then coiiiirctim: the great manu- I'acturiug town of Pittsburg with At lanta, the heart of the South, by the shortest and most direct line, surrounded throughout its whole length by the rich undeveloped resources ot the vnrious counties through which it would pass. must result in certain remuneration lo those who invest in the enterprise, nnd prove of inestimable value to the travel ling and shipping public. toucan snlclv suv to those who nn- interested in this railroad communica tion from Atlanta to Virginia, that they will nave the hearty eo-oiK-raluin ol those of us who are interested in the roud from Glasgow to Pittsburg. I am, my dear sir, very truly yours, I'lTZIH'lill l.KE. The two dummv railroads in Atlanta hauled durinir INHtf one million one hun dred thousand jieople who paid. A fire in the dye house of the liiiule and Pha-nix Mill at Cnluiiilnis. Gn., on Mon day caused a loss of $12,00. It is well covered by insurance. Col. N. C. Harnett.
