I had spent a night in a stage, a day in the saddle, a night in a sleeping car, half a day doing business, half a day in bed, and was, after supper, enjiying a cigar and a newspaper in the reading room of the R House, ?? F ? Indiana. The newspaper was uninteresting, or else I wm rather sleepy?and I guess it was a little of both?so that Iaoon neglected it to watch the fantastic curling of the smoke of my fine-flavored Principe, f didn't feel much like Ulking, and felt still less like reading; but I did feel as if I would like exceedingly well to hear a good story. I had barely come to this conclusion, and commenced wishing for some one of my ac?[uaintaaces to amuse me until the time was up or the train which was to take me to Q , when I recognised, in the person who sat next to me. a fellow-traveler in the sleeping car of night before. Bo was a very agreeable-looking man, with a clear gray eye, fight hair, sandy whiskers, * and smiling mouth. Indeed, he had so much the appearanoe of the man that I woulk like to hear tell a story, that I thought dame fortune had smiled upon me. when he recognized me with a genial? 44 How d ye do, stranger?"* I returned his salutation, and asked him some commonplace question about how he had enjoyed the ride we took together. lie said something in reply about the running being too fast for the poor track; and from this the conversation ran upon fast traveling in general, for some time. At last I remarked that sixty miles an hour was the most speedy traveling that I had ever done. Whereupon my friend informed me, with a pleasant but knowing smile, that he had traveled considerably faster than that. and. in fact, faster than he aad ever heard of beside. Ot course I was anxious to know where, > when, and how he had done it; and after the modest assurance that he feared his tale would not be interesting, my friend relieved my anxiety by relating the following story: "Iaiaa railroad engineer. In '57, during > the great panic, I was running on the F. and C. R. R. The railroad companies were growing tender, in all directions. Every day we heard of new failures; and quite often in a quarter where we least expected it. Our road ^ was looked upon as one of the most substantial in the nation; nobody seemed to have any great fear that it would fail to survive the general smash-up. But yet I did not fully share in the general confidence. Wages were cut down ; arrearages collected ; and a great many other little matters seemed to indicate to me that the road had got into rather deeper water than was agreeable all around. Among other things, the master mechanic had told me in the spring that the company had ordered four first-quality Taunton engines for the fall passenger business. The road was put in the very best condition, and other preparations were made to cut down the time, and put the trains through quicker than was ever known Wore, when the new engines should come. Well, there was but one of the new engines came. ? " I ?id there was but one eagine came, and eh* was, in my opinion, altogether the best ever tamed out at the Taunton works. And this is as much as could be said in praise of any engine. She was put in my oharge immediately, with the understanding that she was mine " It was Saturday when she came out of the P shop, and I was to take a special train up to Y . The train was to carry up the president and several of the other officers of the road, to meet some officers of another road, which crossed ours there, and arrange some important business with them. I had no trouble at all making forty miles an hour going out. The engine handled herself most beautifully. We were just holding up at Y when Ajdrich. the treasurer, who had come out on the platform to put th^ brake on. slipped ard fell. As we were yet under good headway, he was very much injured, and was carried to the hotel in**nsibl*. " According to the president's directions, I* witched off my train, turned my engine, and stood ready to start back to C at a moment's notice. 44 Aldrich'a presence was of so much importance that the business eould not be transacted without him. So all those that I had brought oat, exoept the president and Aldrich, went back to C on the three o'clock express > train. This was the last regular train which was to pass over the road until the following Monday. 44 Early in the evening I left the machine in oharge of my fireman, and went over te an eating house, te see if I could not spend the time more pleasantly than on my engine. The hour* dragged themselves away slowly. I was taking a game of dominoes with the station agent, when in came Roberts, the president, in a state of great excitement. " 'Harry,' said he to me, ' I want you to put ne down ia 0 at twelve o'clock * 44 A* it waa near eleven o'olock, and the distance was seventy-five miles, I thought he was joking at first; bat when we got outside the door he eaaght me by the arm and harried me along so fast I saw he was earnest. 41 Hairy," aaid he, ,4if you don't set me down in C by twelve o'clock, I am a ruined man, and .his road is a ruined road. Aldrich is dead, but he told me before h* died that he had embeazled from time to time, fifty thousand dollars of our money; and his clerk ia to start on th* twelve o'clock boat from C to Canada. If we doa't have that money on Monday morning to make some payments with, the road goes into other hands; and if yoa pat me down in C at the right time, so that I save the money, yoa shall have five thousand dollars. Understand it, Harry! Five thousand dollars?" 44 Of course I understood it. I saw now the reason why the wages had been oat down; I understood it all, and my blood boiled. I felt that I would save the road if I lived, and told Robert* to. ?4 See that yoa do it, Harry," h* replied, as he climbed ap the steps of th* coach which was coupled to my *ngin*. 441 sprang up into the foot-board, got up th* swit?h-tend*r to h*lp my fireman, opened th* throttl*, and Just as sh* commenced moving, looked at my watoh. It waa just eleven o'clock, so that I had one hour to make my eventy-fiv* mil** in. " From Y to C there were few carves in th* road; bat there were several heavy grades I was perfectly acquainted with every rod of it, so that I knew exactly what I had to *oooant?r; and wh*n I saw how th* ?ngia* was moving I had vary little f*ar of th* result. " Th* road, for th* first f*w miles, was an air lin*. aad *o smooth that my engine flew along with scarcely a perceptible jar. I was so busy posting myself as to th* amount of wood ana water aboard. *tc., that w* ffanced by th* first station almost before I was awar* e( it, having been five miaut*soat, and having flv* miles accomplished. * 4,4 Yoa are losing time!' yelled a voio* from th* coach I Toaked around, and ther* stood Robert* with his watoh in his hand. " I knew v*ry well that we woald have to tncrees* oar speed by some m*ans, if we carried oat oar pUnf of reaching C?? by midnight, aad looked anxiously eround to see what I could do to aooomplish that parpo**. Sh* was blowing off steam fieroely at 110 pounds, *o I turned down th* valv* to 200, for I kn*w *h* needed it all to mak* son* of th* h*avy grad** which lay b*tw**o as and C-?. ' It was thr** miles to th* next station With th* *xe*ptton of a few corv**, th* track was as good as th* last. As w* darted amend what commonly seemed to b* a rather long ourv*. at th* station, bat whi*h was, at oar i high speed, short mouth, I looked at my watch, and v* had don* Tt ia two miauUs aad half 44' Gaining,' I shouted back to Roberts, who was standing outsid* on th* platform of th* ;?Mb / *% # ' vgfe. Xix. WASHINGTON, D. C . MONDAY, JANUARY 13, 1862. N?. 2,775. " ' Look out for the heavy grades," he replied, and went inside of the oar. ' The next six miles rose gradually from a level, the first, to too and a half feet grade the last, which lay between as end the next station. My fireman kept her full; and now she began to get hot The furnace door was red, and the steam raised continually; so that she kept her speed, and passed the station like a streak of lightning in five minutes. *' Now oame nine miles like the last; over which she kept pace with her time, and passed the station in seven minutes. "Here, for ten miles, we had a twenty foot grade to encounter; but the worst of it all was, at this place we would be obliged to stop for wood I was just going to speak to Roberts about it, when I looked around and saw him filling the tender from the coaoh, with wood which had been placed there before starting, while he was cone after me. 1 believe he would have made his ten miles at the same speed as before; but through the carelessness of the fireman the fountain valve on the left hand side of the engine got open, and the water rose in the boiler, so far as to run the steam down to one hundred pounds, before I discovered where the difficulty lay. "At first Roberts didn't appear to notice the decrease of speed, and kept at work at the wood as if for dear life. But presently he louked up, and seeing that the speed bad decreased, be shouted : " 'Harry, we are stopping !' " And then, coming over to where I was, be said. Why, hera we have been ten minutes on the last ten miles, and I believe we will come to a dead stand if something is not done. The speed is continually slackening. What is the matter?" "I explained the cause. He was apparently satisfied with my explanation, and after having tied down the safety-valve, he climbed back over the tender, exhorting me to put her through for God's sake, er we are beggars together ! ? "Just then we passed the next station, having taken nine minutes for eight miles. We were now more than half over the road, and we had lost nearly ten minutes time, and had left only twenty-seven minutes to do thirtyfour miles in. J had shut the water off from my pumps a little back, when I discovered what was the matter, and she was now making steam finely down a slight grade. From less than one hundred, with which we started over the ten mile stretch, she had two hundred before we finished it; and as the gage indicated no higher than that, and tfce valve was tied down, I could not tell how much over two hundred poundsshe carried, but she certainly carried none less the rest of the journey. And well might she earry such an enormous head of steam; for after passing over that ten miles in eight minutes, there lay ten miles of a five feet up grade, and fourteen miles twenty-to-the-mile depression between us and C , and it was now eleven o'clock and forty-seven minutes. "Now the engine was hot in earnest. The furnace door, smoke-arch, and chimney, all wore red, while she seemed to fly onward as if the very evil one himself operated her machinery. '* Sl* minutes carried us over that ten miles; and we darted by the last station that had lain between us and C Now we had fourteen miles to go, and my time showed 11 o'clock and fitty-three minutes. . **'If. T ? f if w:it jnoifit, and we plunged down the twenty feet graae with all steam on. Persons who saw the train on that wild ran say that it was soon after they heard the first sound of her approach, when the strange object, which looked as if it was a flame of fire, darted by, and then the sound of its travelling died away in the distance, that they eould hardly convince themselves that they had seen anything. It seemed more like a creature of a wild dream than a sober reality. "And new let me tell you that no engineer never beat the time that we made on those fourteen miles. Those great wheels, eleven feet in diameter, spun around so swiftly that you oould not begin to count the revolutions. The engine barely seemed to touch the track a? she dew along, and although the track was as true as it oould be, she swayed fearfully, and sometimes made such prodigious jolts that it required some skill for one to keep his feet. No engine oould hold together if crowded to a greater speed. "Well, just as I oame to a stand at the J'pot in C , the big clock boomed out twelve, and the steamboat was getting her steam on. Roberts got on board in time, and nothing to spare. "And he saved the money, did he T I asked, when I saw that my friend had finished his story. "Yes! he found it hid away in some old boxe*, as Aldrich had indicated." " If you are a passenger for G said a waiter, "the bus is ready." So I thanked my friend for his story and bade him good bye.?Literary Emporium. How te Build a Smoke Heme. In answer to a correspondent, the Working Farmer gives the following directions:?"A smoke house should be fquare, its sise varying from four to eight feet in diameter, according to the quantity of meat required to be smoked; the lower portion, to the bight of five feet, should be of brick, with a door lined with sheet iron. This may serve both as an ash-house and as the proper place for the fire to furnish the smoke. Fire should be plaoed in the middle and covered with the material to be burned, so that the mass, being surrounded by ashes, may maintain the ignition for a long time, giving of tne smoke with regularity. The upper part may be wood, and the separation from the lower part by joist*, covered with soantling, so as to leave spaces, averaging three inches in diameter, for the ascent of the smoke. The height of this upper portion may be four feet, besides the aeoent of the roof, and should be furnished with a door that may be looked, so that the door to the lower portion will not give ingress to meat-room. This separatien bstween the two portions need not be locked, so as to enable the frequent removal of ashes from the house and the proper attention to the fire to be mere readily performed. Sawdust plaoed over a few ignited ooals will furnish the neeessary material for smoking the meat. The sawdust, however, should be from such wood as is most free from resinous matter; the pyroligneoas aeid evaporation is of a better flavor from hard than from aoft wood, while the amount of ereoeote, whieh fs the preservative property, will be the same." Leek te the Cellars. The Germantown Telegraph says that those who have in charge the oare of the household, should frequently think of their oellars, and though they may not be often exposed to the eye or strangers, take care that thev are always kept in a cleanly oondition, free from annoyances and nuisances of all kinds. A tidily kept eellar has much to do with the health of a family, especially in the spring of the year, or wherever "heaters" are introduced into bouse*. No vegetable except potatoes should be stored in tne cellar. Especially should cabbages, beets, eelery, and turnips be exeluded. All these are offensive in themselves and injurious to health, while at the same time they are all preeerved in a much superior manner oat of door*. A oellar should b? thoroughly whitewashed at lea*t once a year, and swept and pat in order twice a month. The air In a properly kept eellar will not become impure when the weather becomes sufficiently oold to render necessary the closing i op of the open windewi; while, oa the other hand, the air of a cellar ao closed op, whieh if ' untidily kept and filled with vegetable*, some i of them in a decayed state, may well be Imag ' ined. All eellar*, however, should have tbe outside doors thrown open for an hoar or two in midday, in clear day*, when tbe temper* tore is above tbe Greeting point. TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. I The War la Kentucky I Cincinnati. Jan. 11.?The Gazette of thiscity I haa the following: From the editor of tbe late Sandy Hook Valley I Advocate, now one of tbe proprietora of tbe I Louisville Democrat, who arrived bere from I Sandy Valley yesterday, we learn tbat tbe second rebel Invasion of Eastern Kentucky has ended in a rout. On Monday last Col. Garfield's forces, in- I eluding the 42dOhlo regiment, and 1,800 cavalry, | had proceeded up the Big Sandy to Paineovllle, within seven miles of the rebel camp, when they I were met by a flag of truce from Humphrey Marshall, aaklng If matters could not be arranged without a fi^bt. Col. Garfield immediately re-I plied tbat be could offer no arrangement, and I that they (the rebels) must either flgnt or surren- I der unconditionally. Humphrey Marshall then addressed his men telling tbem they bad tbe ?lr I ternative of surrendering or disbanding, and I giving tbem tbelr choice. Tbey immediately I collected and set fire to all their wagons, tents | camp equipage, Ac , and then each man was per- I mltted to take care of himself, and tbe whole force scattered in confusion. The rebels made no attempt to save anything I except tbelr cannon, which was hauled cff. Col I Garfield hasdispetched his cavalry In pursuit, and I tbey expect to capture the guns,and perhaps pick I up many of the flying rebels. The rebels in northeastern Kentucky, from the I high estimate In which Humphrey Marshall's I military abilities were held, bad strong hopes of I success under his leadership. A sufficient Federal I force will be left in that region to secure ltsfuture I peace and safety. A BRUSH WITH TBI REBEL GUNBOATS.
