The scheme of the system em braces: First. A completion of the iuter oceauic road from the Gulf of Mexico across the middle of the country from Vera Cruz via the Uity ot Mexico to the Pacific coast, aud becoud, An inter-national Hue op ening the channels of commerce by rail communication between that country and the United Slates. The com panics to which the conces sions have been made arc the Mexican Central Railroad Company, a corpo ration organized under a charter from Massachusetts, aud the National Con structional Mexican Railway Con struction Company, made up of tire Snllivai Palmer party which has hi: lierto beeu conuected with the Denver aud Rio Grande Railroad. The Mexican Central Company is building a line from the City of Mex ico northward to the city of Leon, about 282 miles, about thirty-five miles from Selaya. The Salamanca are in the section extending from the the City of Mexico about thirty-seven miles, it is expected to be opened about November 27th. On Novem ber 30th Diaz retires from the Presi. dency. An early effort is being made to have the section ready for formal inauguration by him before that date- i'he new concession gives the Mexi can Central Co a right to extend its line from Lcon.to El Paso del Norte on the Rio Grande frontier of New Mexico where it will meet with the Atchison, Topcka & Santa Fe rail road, the Texas Pacific, the Galveston, II ai risburg & San Antonio aud t he Sonoia railroad, now being construc ted from Guaymas. The company is also authorized by the law to con struct a line to the port of'Mazatlan from any convenient point on its line irom the city of Mexico between the cities of Leon and Aguas Calientes, passing through the city of Guadala jara. The total mileage thus autho rized i estimated to be about fourteen hundred miles. To the National Mexican Railway Construction Com pany another concession grants the privilege of building a road from the City of Mexico to the Pacific coast at the port of Manzanilla. To aid ths liue a subsidy of $70,000 per kilometer equivalent to about $11,200 per mile, is granted. The same company is also granted the right to build a road from a point on the above mentioned liue iu tlio State of Michauhou, west of the City of Mexico northward through the cities of (Jaluya, San Lu is Potosi, Saltillo and Mouterey to a convenient point on the Texas fron tier between Larodo and .Eagle Pass on tin- Rio Grande, where a connec tion is expected with the Internation al and Great Northern Railway, the same being iu eourso of construction south of San Antonio, with a probable branch from the Galveston, I larris burg & San Amonio road, The sub sidy to this road is fixed at $65,000 per kilometer. All the subsidies for this road are payublo in a manner similar to that provided in the cae ot the Mexican Central Company but because the lines arr to bo uurrow guago o&ly to an extent of four per cent thereof. Chicago, Oct. 7. A special dispatch says: 1 lie campaign in Indiana and Ohio will be forever meniorablu for the amount of money spent. Iu these states thin year botli parties accuse the other of colouizing aud buying rote, but the charges made Bgainit : I tie Democrat liav c ko ueeu au- tlieuticatcd on indisputable evidence, ' while no single case lias been made against the Republicans. As yet Daruuin and Flemiujf, who are adepts in political trickery, aud English and Laudirs, fiud themselves matched iu executive ability, at least by Filley, of St. Louis, Don Cameron, Foster and Conkling, who have all come to lend their aid and to insure fair play. The Fowler interview with General Grant has produced a very deckled impression, aud has done much to open the eyes of doubting or uncertain voters as to what may be expected from Hancock in case he should land in the White House. II is determina ed adherence to Democracy when he was in the South; his forgetfulness of his fidelity to his commanding general aud to his government, and his an xiety to serve the unsubdued rebels ol Louisiana by the most unworthy methods, were laid barn by Geueral Grant's interview so that everybody the exposure and unwilling to 'Uter on'the difficult task of at tempting to vindicate himself before the people. A TrTVuue special from Indianapols afSUhat the Democrats cairn as fol f&v: Senator McDonald said that hey would carry the state aud have Ugoou worising majority in in1 legis lature. Senator Voorhecs fixed the plurality between 800 and 1,400. Gov. Hendricks said it would not fall short of 10,000, and Judge Scott, of thr Su preme Court, ventured no opinion whatever. Gen. Franz Siegel savs that the state was uncertain, but he thought that Landers might get through. Landers expressed the opinion .''that Hancock's election de pends upon mine and unless too much money is used against it the State ticket will '"C elected by a good ma jority. If I am defeated the party will make ny effort to save the State for Hancock, it would be foolish to attempt it. Win. II. English was very quiet and had no opinion to ex press, but lo a News reporter he said: "Sinse have been Chairman of the Democratic State Committee I have not received a letter that gave me any assurance of Democratic vic tory in Indian"!. With this remarka ble answer the reporter went to Sen ator Conkling who is reported to have replied: "If Win. II. English told you he has every assurance and is confident the State'wil! go Democrat ic it leaves me little hope for Indisna. His remark was not made to delude and I shall look for him to carry the State."' If is not likely that Senator Conkling made any such remark, nor is English's answer credited although it is known his iigur h based on the poll of the Slate shows a Democratic shortage of 4,000. The above inter views arc of importance only because they prove that the Democrats have no figures upon which they can base a claim for a majority, hence no two of the managers agree in their esti mated majority. It is very evident, however, that they are badly rattled. At Republican headquarters the managers arc very happy and confi dent. All arc at work aud nothing seems wrong. ,Thc drift is with us said Col. Dudley to a Tribune repre sentative, "and we arc certain of the election. Telegrams have been scut from Philadelphia, Paltiinore anr1 Washington asserting that Democrat ic reporters and'roughs had left there for Indiana intending to vole and Porter has leceived letter? from a number of persons, several being from Cincinnati, warning him that the Democrats intended to buy negro votes Tuesday, but, the Republicans are getting ready to meet all these schemes and unless the Democrats get the better ot them in the large Democratic counties they will come out all right. Senator Conkling re marked that a'l the reports he had heard fince ho had been iu the stale were very encouraging. New York, Got. 7. The Herald of to-day says: Among officers of the army, aud particularly those station ed on Governors Island, and therefore brought more intimately iuto rela tion with Geueral Hancock, them is a good deal of feeling iu regard to the alleged Fowler-Grant interview. "The amendments of the original publica tions," said one officer, "make the matter more muddled iban ever, aud the next thing will bo for Grant to explain his cxplnations." "Grant is bound if possible," remarked another, to make Gurfield tho next President. He kuowt then that he will be a Prince behind the throne; whereas, if Háíicock is elected, he will be left out in the cold. He is not in position to ask favors of Hancock. Iu the firsj placo he treated him most shabbily when he gave .McDowell, a junior Maj r General, iu the command of this "Department and sent Han cock Vest, when he did his utmost to cripple Hancock while the latter was iu command at New Orleans; and what did Ilaucock do?" interrupted another officer, "lie resented it. He would either commaud or he would not, an l when he found he coiild not command, but must content himself with being a figure-head, he resigned, and he did what any other high spirit ed officer would have done: there is an unwritten history tl'iat may be written." San Francisco, Oct. 7. Congress man Davis says, regarding the story telegraphed here of smuggling the Pacific Mail subsidy iu the Statute boaks, that a great deal is being made out of nothing. Ho reviews the bene fits to be derived from intimate rela tions with the Australian Colonies, and says that the Pacific Mail Com pany had nothing to do with the mat ter, and concludes : '"I think it is bet ter for the government to live up to Ibis measure, even if it takes $40.000 out of the treasury and give? it to the Colonies, if by so doing we can retain their trade and travel. As to the protenso that there was anything sur reptitious iu the passage of the meas ure, it is false." The Chamber of Commerce memorialized to secure the passage of Mich a bill. I introduc ed the proposition and it was passed unanimously by the bouse in commit tee of the whole. Later it came ou the floor where it was opposed, dis-cu-sea and passed by a three to one vote. It went to the postal Senate committee, which rejected. After discussions on the floor of the Scuate it, was restored by that body and adopted. Under such circumstances there could havj been no such thing as smuggling it through. I believed it to be a jii!.i, an I expedient measure then aud am of the same opinion still, and 1 cheerfully shoulder the respon sibility of its authorship." San Francisco, Oct. 7. A Dallas dispatch s:is the Presidential special train arrived here at cigh! o'clock. It was met on Main street by the committee with carriages which con veyed the President and Mrs. Hayes, Secretary Ramsey, Gen. Sherman, Judge Deady and a few others to the new Masonic hall. All along the line the streets were crowded with school children with garlands )f flowers and men in uniforms bearing torches. Upon arriving at the place the Presi dent was escorted to the platform where Judge Wm. C. Ilochill addres sed him on behalf of the citizens to which the President replied, dwelling at some length upon the resources aud future of the countrv and then closed with shaking hand-; by whole sale. Dr. Richardson then introduced Mrs. Hayes as the great, mother to which Secretary Ramsey responded in a ten minute speech. Gen. Sherman was called by the crowd with enthusiastic cheers and spoke live minute?. Four hundred school children bearing Mowers then filed past the party aud were followed by the firemen in uniform who halted and sang a patriotic song iu the chorus of which the citizens joined flic parly then passed through the hall and hand shaking continued till ten o'clock. Fully 4,000 people many from' the surrounding country filled the streets. The party has gone on board the boat to start at five o'clock for Cascades. City of Mexico, Oct. 1. On the 21st ultimo the House of Representa tives by a large majority opposed t he Senate resolution declaring Gen. Gon zales President of tho ..Republic, his term o begin the first of December next.
