This trip was our first journey over the Alle ghanies by railroad. aDd also our first through tho interior of Ohio. The most remarkable point striking us upon the journey is the so lidity and perfection with which the Balti more and Ohio railroad is constructed and fttr nished from end to end. To a person who has spent many years iu the business of a civil en gineer, i-uch a trip discloses instantly whore tho immense amount of money has gone which the road cost. Nowhere else in this country is there a railroad, of considerable length, neces sarily costing anything like the average sum per mile that this road must havo cost; nor is there another considerable railroad in the 1 nitcd States built like this, apparently for all time. Everything about it is substantial, from the cut stone water-tanks, that look like fortification? along its liue, at regular dis tances, and the stone cut viaducts, someof them apparently three hundred feet high4? from foundation to road surface?to itg maty tunnels, three of which are said to bore the mountain over half a mile through?one more than three quarters of a iailo. I know not the precise number of tunnels on the line, but three of them are immense works indeed, each having cost millions of dollars. The longest is now being lined with an arched casement of brick, which is probably neces sary to the completion and security from da?> gerous slides of all such works Of civil engi neering. The highest point on the route is said to bo 2,700 feot above tide water. Tte consequent great change in the temperature made me quite sensible of the soundness of the scientific axiom with reference to the va riations of the thermometer at different alti tudes. Iu Washington, on Thursday last, the light est summer garb was all sufficient for com fort At Piedmont, the point at which the im mediate crossing of the Aileganies commence*, wo were glad to find the car stove being lighted. Day break caught us at Akamont. the highest point on the road, where it was snowing The difference between the temper ature at the immediate foot of the mountains and their summit, was 12 degrees of Fahrea heit, and perhaps 24 degrees between the temperuturo of Washington City and the mountain's top. The ascent from Piedmont t> Akamont is fifteen miles. From thcnce there is a run of twelve or fifteen miles along the top of tho mountain with slightly varyidg changes level; at the end of which?"the Summit"?the dcscent commences. The mountain track indeed begins at the Point Of Kocks, where the read intersects the Bull Hun ridge, or easternmost spur ?>f the Blue Kidge. Tho work between the Point of Koclis and Harper s Ferry was stupendous in its dat ing and cost, being in its .lay the most expeA sive ever constructed in any country?requir ii.g rock cutting for miles in some places, one hundred feet deep along the face ot the moun tain that skirts the Potomac between th<>se puiuts, and thicugh the solid walls of which the river bursts its way just below it* juncture with the Shenandoah, making the world re nowned gorge that has rendered the scenery at Harper's Ferry so famous. The ascent from Harper sFerry to Cumber land, though less costly, is through a,very pic turesque country, the road hugging the Ches apeake and Ohio Canal bank in many placer From Cumberland, the great centre of tho Maryland coa! trade, to Piedmont, tho route is along tho valley of the Potomac, whiah grows small by degrees and beautifully less, until one might almost clear it with a tup skip and jump' Tho scenery is beautiful be yond description on that portion of the rout*, not stunning in its grandeur, as upon the western descent from the mountain top?. Here the road winds around the base of mountain spurs, many of them apparently isolated, atsd though of no great height, exceedingly ia teresting ?n account of the charming \ariety they give to the scene. Some rise suddenly like cones, others gcutly, others are faced witJi a perpendicular wall of rock Inying in well defined strata and having the appearance of human masonic work. The valley thrcu^h that particular region is very narrow and being fertile, is capitally cultivated, wearing at this time a carpet of green. W.^>. W H. Cincinnati, May 31, 1S5? My last letter brought tho reader amid tho beautiful littlo isolatod mountain spurs around and among which tho Potomac dashes i on its course, where it is little more of a river than tho Tiber between the railroad depot and Pennsylvania avenue One can, in no other way than making the trip in person, obtain a correct idea of the charming variety of the details of the scenery along the Balti more and Ohio Kailroad between Cumberland and Piedmont, at tho immediate baso of the great backbone of the country laying between the Atlantic ocean and the Mississippi river It is not grand : but at every turn, as una winds among the hills, new and strikiDgly differing picturesque views burst upon his sight w ith the rapidity of shifting scenes in a I theatre. (Jradually. in making that compar atively gentle ascent, the thermometer falls, until at Piedmont one gets beyond the grain growing range?that is, the range of territory in which corn and whost can be profitably grown From Piedmont to Akamont. fifteen mile*, the ascent towards the clouds is rapid At Altamont the traveler enters upon4tTh.j ? Hades," along which he journeys for twehe miles, almost on a level upon the mountains' top. No effort to grow grain is made here, tho snow always laying for six months in the year, and in the gorges of the mountains at times nearly ten months. These glades are valuable agriculturally for summer pasturage for the stock of farmers whose main estates are from fifty to a hundred miles below?in the famous " South Branch country. No effort to keep the stock up here in winter is made, as the grajiers find it more profitable to drive them to market in the fall after being thus fattened in tbe lunutr Th* popular belief is. that slock attended to, at is Mary land generally. will not weather the aereritj of the climate of the Glades through a wiater So, those not sold in the fall are driven below to be wintered in that more genial clime. Oakland ia the prinoipal point on the ronte in the Glades It it the retort of health and pleasure seekers in tbe summer months, When its temperature is that of genial Maj in Wasbington Around it are tront streams and deer in abundanoe, which form an additirral inducement for the presence, at certain season?, of the lowlander. The soil seem* to be wet and springy, the railroad drains giving evidence that, to make it advantageously cultivable, requires a heavy expenditure of labor. From tbe Summit station, where the road commences to descend from the mountain1! immediate top, for about twelve er fifteen miles the scenery is stupendous. To a low lander it strikes him dumb with astonishment at the wonders of the results of the struggling of the contending force* of nature, frhich have been thrown out of the bowels of the earth in their labors against eaeh other. Maases of rock, with, at times, perpendicular faces a thousand feet high, and mountains of earth, each, at this time, weighing millions of tons, though perhaps for hundreds of <*ntarie* God's rains have been daily carrying dewn to their bases from their tops portions of their masse?. The results of man a labor as there mani fested, are hardly le6s remarkable. The rail re id course^ s way in, aroand, through and over the mountains there?now hanging sus pended in mid air, in a position from which we may easily cast a stone into a mad stream rushing. foaming over the rocks that lay a thousand feet below him. at the next moment diving into the bosom of the mountain by means of a tunnel, and this running for near a mile under the earth, groping in the dark ness of Erebus itself. Here bounding over a g^rgc upon a trcssle work three hundred feet high, or upon a more substantial arch of stone of equal altitude. All this is in a region with a semi-Siberian climate, and consequent at tributes of natural production of soil, the pic turesque fir tree, the native of the Northa being a conspicuous feature of the acene, torn the eye as one will. The Cheat river, one ol the heals of the Monongahala, creates the valley, or rather deep gorge winding among these immense mountains, along which a ronte has been found for this remarkable work. It leaps from mountain to mountain with a rap idity which sends up its spray to the railroad hanging hundreds of feel above its bed. In lice, the scenery on this particular portion of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad is Alpin#? equally .as grand as that of any sccnsry of the Alps themselves. No other work of art in America is more remarkable than this rail road through it; nor has nature any where in America scattered, as though with a hap bazard hand, m<>re wonderful specimens of her proverbial vagaries. The day will come when tbe traveller will feel it as necessary, once at least, to view its wonders, as now to see tbv>se of Niag-tra. W JJ. W ?. The Unrn States Armisg Khjlahd ?It is a curious fact, that American mechanic* excel all others in the manufacture of fire arms and are at the present time filling large contracts for parties in England representing the English government. Sharp s arms, par ticularly, are in high favor, both the carbine and ride being in large demaud. They arc claimed to combine simplicity of construction, rapidity of firing and extraordinary range, with perfect aoouracy and unequalled safety. An order for 25,000 American rifles, with the Minie sight and knob for the '? lock bayonet,'' is in oouroe of execution at the extensive works at W indaor, Vt , and is now probably half completed. Another order for 10,000 Sharp's rifle, also on account of parties in England. is in courve of fulfilment as Colt's factory in Hartford. In order to avoid a^v collusion or mistake as to the oonatruct.o^ wf the arms, English gunners personally inspect and stimp them as completed. Sharp s arm* aro peculiarly well adapted for eavalry ser vice. Tho remarkable suoces* which has been gained in this country in the manufacture of fire-arms is further illustrated by the fact to at machinery, to the value of (220 000, such as used in some of the large American es tablishments in this department of mechanics, has been msde at Windsor. Vt , and sent to England, and is now probably very nearly in readinesa for operation To insure its excel lence, it was particularly direoted that it must not only be made by Americans, but must tie taken out and aet up by Americans, and final ly. Americans must be employed to control and superiutend its operation Accordingly, some of our most accomplished artisans are now em ployed in the English workshops. This ar rangement is in part the result of an investi gation made in the United Slates, by direction of this English Government, with reference to the manner aud cost of making fire-arms It was proved that the same arm made in Eng land, at a cost of about S9, was made at tbe Springfield armory for only a trifle over ^3. The success <tT American mechanics here no ticed is matter for congratulation. The Eng lish Government have given the American rifle a very thorough test, and always with the nicst favorable rosulti IlAffnOLPa's SARt\is*.?A yorrug man at tempted to make his acquaintance.
