'Vo have l>e?n arked repeatedly, of late, whether it is the purpose of the majority in meeting of the Washington Councils to deprive their fellow citizens who do not agree wi-h tiiem politically cf a representation aicJ^ :ho commissioners to be chosen to superintend the manio^al election to take plaoe in this city in June. In reply, we have to siy that vve take it for granted that they oannot possi bly entertain any su:h design; i&aomuch a? it would bo a gross violation of the principle cf oquality of political rights, which, up to this t.mo, has been conscientiously respected by all parties when in powor in Washington; ao fla grant as io bear on its faco the proclamation of the purpcre of doing acts to recure a tri umph?perpetrating frauds on the integrity of tiie ballot-box?to conceal which, aa far as pes fible, it is absolutely necessary to deny the 0-her side th*ir light to be represented in the tribunals which are to determine who may and who may n?t legally exercise the elective iranobiae at ibis coming election. Not having ti.c least idoa that we havo any considerable cumber of men among us who would thus seek to bring about the destruction of the oloitivc r gats of the citiscn, we think we are at liber ty to atrare the inqaiiers that both sides will be ieprc;ented in tLo several boards of elec tion commissioners, which are to be chosen by the Councils on Monday afternoon next. B&ilroad Traveling.?In the appropriate department of the Star may be found Set forth the new arrangements provided by the Baltimoro and Ohio Railroad Company for tho accommodation of travelers between the E<?st and West It rnoy be observed that great improvements have beea effected by the liberal and onterpri.'ing managers of the road, and thnt all the moat desirable features of modern locomotion are now combined in their attractive routo. Tho only railroad leading from Washington is the 'Washington Branch" of the Baltimore &nd Ohio line. It wa3 completed in 1831? twenty-one years ago. Ever since that time, pacacnger- fo: the Wfest have necescauly trav eled over this branch road, in order io rcach Lhc lines running between the Atlantic cities t:.d tho great West. For many years previous to 1851, the stage coache- over the National road thrcng'n Cum Lcriand, Unionlcwn, aid Brownsville to Wheeling and Pittsburg?and tho continua 1-on of the same lino;, or the Ohio river steam e-s, constituted the great central route be t*ecn the E.wt end West for ail travelers?to and from Washington andBaltimcio especial ly The popularity cf this routo was only partiahy interfered with by the completion ol the Pennsylvania car-is, which safely and suroiy carried great numbers of admiring traveler* between Philadelphia and Tiita harg?some 30o miles?in the incredible space of ?>e days. Twenty five ye?-.ro ago it required tho trav eler from Washington jast Lve days to reach tie Ohio at Wheeling, by the esp'o^s line ci undor the then famous "ritcckton and St-jkes " No"v, tho stages Lave vanished, and the trip ocouj:;. d but t Ao-thirds cf ono day by ttte L .Itiiuoro and Ohio railroad???ct ntecv a J j L?lj hanis bcirg the full time rtquired to: the ran cetwe? n Wa: Ling -on and Wheeling As the buil^ eg of the railroad pTogrettod, how ever, the ttiium cT tho coach was substituted by the eaw cf the car E.ederiek, Point of Rock?, Ii .rp?i'o Ferry, Hancock, and Cam bcrland, Were successively reached by the loco motive in lS31.-'32 -r31,-'4l, ar.d :42. At Cuntbeitand a long pau.'e en^acd, arresting the progress of the road for nearly ton ysars This delay arcse from disputes about the oharter, right of way, and the western termi nus, and was prolonged by the impracticable 6pliitof tome of the partiesdisfutact, partic ularly th..;o representing tho Wheeling inter est. vihioh tnally controlled the Legislature ef Virginia in the aetilement of the contro versy. V, hilo tho prcgrcio cf the Baltimore and 0?-i3 rauroad was thus onti.ely arretted, (by the con.eatioa of abstractionists ar.d tho oppo sition of selfish interests,) and while the stage cca:hes were a'ill forming tho western divi sion of its l.no between Cumberland and Wheeling, tho New York an I Erio railroad waz fiaishrd. We well lemoa.bor how, in loil, tho tido of travel wai at onoe turned from tho moro direct southern and oantral roLtea to tho newly openoi railroad between Nc.r York and Dunkirk. The anomaly was then presented of travelers from the tniddlo of O^.o, and frvUi a-st.rc Kentuoky and Tennes see, going ntrthward to L?ke Eria and oast ward to New York city in order to reach V? itching ton by the most prompt and comfort able ccnveynr.co, though journeying in many edits dcublo tho more dirco: distance by the previously traveled routes. The necessity for this circuitous coarse is no* happily removed. 1 he Baltimore and Ohio r ilroad, thanks to the rare ability and energy of i?s lato Prcsi. dent, Thcmas S.vann, was completed to Wheel in 1863. Owing to the want of proper rail r.td conatotlons, however, tho btt?incs3 cf tho road?in passengers?has eo far been comparatively rmall Boirg the Crst great l?ne mat by tho csjerding stetme;s of the Oh:\ end rcashing nearer than any other to wards tho heart cf the West, it has bven made a f.vorito carrier cf its rich products to the eastern markets. Its freighting business has thu3 been encrmtur, and the promptness and rcgniaiity which havo atterded its transport has commanded general rcmaik. Notwithjtanding the drawbacks fc!ready al luded to, besides ths vigorous opposi ion of its rival", the road has had a fair chare cf through t-nvei Being obliged here'ofore to rely Lr n ccnnsctlon at Wheeling, npen the Ohio rivor, with i's ever variable stages of n.H\igrvtion?too slew for the business man's transit at best?cr upon the worse resource of tho National turnpiho with its lumbering Coaohfs?even the great natural advantages of the read?in i s ^ciiiral location, and it* sublime sconery, were not suflioieat to secure it a very large proportion of the heavy travel always mcvir.g between the oast and west. A brighter prospect has now dawned upon tie route, axd it is at la<t in the way to a-cttme the commanding ranS, as a pareenger lite, which its Leal rtsourcee, and its muiti v'ic-d attructiona would a^tm to war.-an*, mis improved c^tdiiion of thlLgi grcwaout of t^e late oounletlon and the rapid rxtcn ?.. n cf tevsral important lin*s converging at or tear Wheeling, which will, with tho Bal timore and Onto road, with tho entiro systtm of wts crn railroads. The in at valuable of these is the Ccn'ra! Ouia rocj, runnhg from | Clunibus to tie Ohio rirtr at Belaire, dl 1 rec lj Cj petite L-tw cd Stutiors on tLo lialti i m>;e ixd Ohio f,ur miles below Wheeling. To facilitate Iho trailer of pas sengers and merchandise bet men the two roads, arrangement* were mad* to connect directly at this point?Benwood?tLus saving also a distance of eight miles in the travel and transport between the east and west, by avoiding Wheeling. Wheeling, however, was aroused, and proved true to its own previous selfishness, a&d true to the recent example or Erie. lueited by the imminent danger of losing the supply oi dinners and suppers to hungry travelers, and also the taxes heretofore levied in the form of drayage and commissions upon the large quantities of merchandise passing to abd fro by the road, caused an injunction to be issued by one of its own citizen judges, restraining the company from using the legitimate and convenient connection at Benwood, and fore ng the business to be done withiu the limits of their town. The two railroad compa nies, therefore, in conformity with the law imposed by this dog-in the-manger polio;, are now connecting through Wheeling. They have arranged their time tables to effect thij without unnecessarily delaying their passon gars, and yet without allowing the pea-nut injunctionst an opportunity to relieve them of their spare coppers on the waj. The Central Ohio Railroad is one hundred and thirty-seven miles long It runs through several very rich and populous counties of Ohio constituting the ho*rt cf the State. It has highly important railroad connections at Zinesville and Newark ; and at Columbus, its western terminus blends itself with th* leading iiaes of the great West. It is thus an invaluable adjunct of th* Baltimore and Ohio Road. Col. J. II Sullivan is its ntelll gent President, and Isaac II Southwfck, Esq , its new and very efficient fuperintendent. During tho last month, t.s we are informed, a large increase of through travel has beon had by this route. Its through tiokets are now sold in New York, Philadelphia, Balti more, end Washington, for all the important cities of t-e west, and the north and southweeti including even New Orleans. The general features of the routo are becoming well ksowni since all who have parsed over it have spoken *o loudly of its point3ofinterejt. We may on:y say, there Tore, o those who are not aware of ths fact, that the Brltimore railroad crosres ihe Allegany mountains by oae o the boldest and most picturesque lines ever marked out by the ongineer, and that it potee?ses every re quisite cf speed, safety, and comfort to be found in any other first c!sa route f r travel ers. We congratulate the ccmpacy. its early friends and its present controllers, that their grea* road may at last?aJter twenty eight years of labor, and o' hope deferred?be pro nTrncedcomploted. Under its present ener gelio and sagacious management, the road is sure to grow in favor, e.'peci^lly with the large a;.d increasicg number of direct travelers be tween Washington and the West. We ought not to conclude our noticc of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, without a word of compliment to i s worthy chief officers. Wm. G. Harrison, the president of the com pany, Is highly esteemed for the ability, en ergy aLd integrity with which he has for two yc.*.rs psrt discharged his office. John II Doue, who, under the title of Mastor of Trans1 p.-rtatioa, hki the general direction of the practical affairs of the road, io recognized ev ery whore as asterling man, asd an unsurpassed ollicar in all respects, llis administration com mands the public approval, and evidences b rare combination of the essential qualification for his arduous position. The Road Depart ment, embracing the track, the bridges and other improvements, is undor the exolusive control of Wendcl Bull man, rail and favorably known as the inventor ot the Iron Railroad Suspension Bridge. The numcrcus locomo tives and cars cf the company, with its huge workshops, are all under the chargo of Samuel llays, its mas'.or of machinery, whose abilities are amply shown in the many oxoelleni en gines no* success'ully wcrkingita trains 2:700 feet up the Alleghanies, at a speed of 2a miles per hour. In the hands of such f fibers the company's interests may be eafely rep^d, and the public at the same time be fully served. IU signed -Mr. A Dudley Mann, in pur ruance of his determination announced in the papers last fall, on the 1st inat. rengned the i oition he held undor the U jvcrnmont of the United States as Assistant Secretary of Stato. We understand that it is Mr. Mann's pur pose to go to Europe, where ha has private business growing out of his long residence in that quarter of the globe. Iti the course of his residenoe in the loderal metropolis, the urbanity of his manners, his extensive expe rience with men and things, and his high character have mado for him hosts of personal friends, who will part with him with elnoere regret. Amoric&n Building Stone ?With all pro posals for the erection cf buildings for tho Government ccnttruoled under the auspices of tho Treasury Department, the Secretary of the Treasury receives specimens of the stone proposed to be used In tho works by the dif ferent bidders. As of late hundreds of such ?'.ruotures havo been oommsnced cr projected in all quarteri of tho country, the oonso quc-nce has been an unprecedented accumula tion of specimens of American building stone at the Department. Nearly all of them aro admirable; and, as a whol*, they prove that overy portion of our vast country is capitally supplied with this now almost prime necessary cf an advanced state of society.
