FF.E OUTSIDE FOR INTERESTING TKLB GRAPHIC AND OTHER MATTER NO MORE .FIRK CRACEERS. Young A mertca must hereafter be content to c?lfbrt'? (Jbriiinu >id Independence day Without the usual fusilade of Chinese crack, era. The tariff Mil introduced into the Senate by Mr Fessenden yesterday, contain* a clause forbidding the importation of fire-crackers; aad, whatever bill peases, this provmloa will no doubt be or.e of its features. This seemingly trivia! subject is one of the greatest imDortance, as the terrible fire which nearly destroyed tba eity of Portland. Maine, last summer, originated fr??m the explosion of a Are-cracker; and >en*tor Fewuder., whose home is in tbat city, deserves the thanks of the country for taking inftmref *o profit by that leason, and provide a?amst similar calamines in future.

Are we to goon forever doing notbiug, and permitting nobody to do anything for us f The city might now be reaping the benefit ol a system of street railways of her own fostering, contributing to ber a handsome annual snra for a city park, as in Baltimore, or to renovate ner exhausted finances. The boon was within our reach, and almost gamed, but was defeated in one branch of the City Councils through the mischievous influence of parties who hoped t j get the franchise for their own benefit. The result was that nothing was done, and the franchise fell into the hands of stranger*. Our ignominious failure to do anything with our franchises lor railroad* to the Pom' of Rocks and to Point Lookout is a matter of unpleasant recollection. The project to put o?r?o|ve? in water communication with New York, was "pooh poilid" and wet-blanketed nearly to dea'b. Birely half the requisite subecr ptions for the enterprise were raised by the energetic committee, who worked un&vailingly until "footsore and heart-sore," .13 one of them said, in despair. Some of these subscriptions were afterwards cancelled by faint-hearted ones, and but for the success of the committee in raising money quiteoutsideof city subscriptions, the experiment would have ialleu through hopelessly. The announcement that the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company were prepared to commence operations with t large force upon the construction of the Metropolitan Railroad lrom tb.s city to the Point of Hocks has been received in this community with the liveliest satisfaction, and it did really seem that at last this city was about to enter upon the long-hoped-lor career of business prosperity. ^ The construction of this road would not only cause the employment of a large force of workmen in this immediate vicinity, and tbe disburse, ment of a large sum of money in our midst but Ita permanent benefits must be incalculable, putting us In Immediate communication with the r>chMt portions of Virginia. Mary, land, and Pennsylvania; and, with other con. R^ctionif shortening thp route to tti? West more than 12a miles This prospect opening up to ws at a time of unparalleled business depression, was hailed with more universal satisfaction than anything here within our knowledge for years. Nothing was wanting but the requisite legislation from the City Councils giving the road the right of way. and this seemed to be so purely a matter of form that we presume there was not one pertou out of a thousand in Washington that did not feel absolute impatience that a measure so vital to tbe prosperity of the city should be delayed one instant longer than was necessary for the requisite forms of legislation to be gone through with. But it was not to be. The squatting inenbus was not so easily dislodged. J nst at the moment when hope is at the highest and everybody praying for the happy hour when the first spadeful of earth shall b? pitched, in the commencement of tbe great work, our ears are saluted, as were ttiose of our forefathers in the most heroic period of tbe revolution, by tbe dissonant ?ry of "beef!'? "beef!" shouted through the camp by the inevitable speculator thrusting his own selfish interests in the way of the public good. ?-Buy my lots or I'll defeat the bill!" Just such speculators we have bere, bawling their beef through tbe columns of the Intelligenter, and one of whom was bobbing around so Indefati?ably, up stairs and down stairs, at the City Hall on Monday night last, lobbying agalne' the Metropolitan Railroad bill, and canstag marked copies of the InUlligencer containing bis communication to be placed upon tbe desk of every member of the two Boards of the City Councils. Other speculators of tbe same ilk are endeavoring to force tbe removal of the railroad depot to tbe boundaries of tbe city, so as to effect a sale at a big flgnre of their own cheap lot* In that direc. tion; and yet others who own cheap lots upon the street# along the line of tbe proposed roaj, hope to make a good thing by causing tbe bill to provide tor the payaient to them of a winging anm for visionary damages from the cars running In front of their property. It is urged in the interest of this nest of specalators that "our city interesu will absolutely require that the railroad depots shall be removed further back from tbe center of tbe city." Now we hold that it is always for the interests of a city that its railroad stations should be as near Its center as potslb.e. Philadelphia attempted to break close railroad conne ions through ber boundaries, and tbrust the iati?Mg on the outskirts, an error that she speedily rued, aud now that city Is endeavoring to repair tbe evil at enormous cost. To drive tbe railroad eta. tion out to the boundary ot tbe city, *s we have heretofore said, is for tbe benefit ot nobody but hack-drivers, and speculators in suDurban lots. Every business man who has a pound ol freight biougbt by railrcad ha? reason to enrse tbe stupidity that, by forcing the road to stop at the boundary, compels him to pay a dollar or hair dollar additional cartage upon every cart-load of freight taken from the depot. It is not tbe railroad company tbat Is injured by this senseless folly of forcing tbe dropping of passengers and freight on tbe outskirts, instead of bringing them to the beart of tbe city, it is less expense to the company to damp freight there than to bring it to tbe conter of tbe city; tbere is vastly less time coasumed, less labor required, and there is lees wear and tear of rail and rolling stock We think it would be for the Interest of tbe city tbat tbe right to come to the present depot should b* granted even lOBger than proposed by the bill before tbe City Coonclls. if not In perpetuity. Then the business of the eity would accommodate itself to tbe road aud th? station. Permanent warehouses would be erected aloof the tracks, with switches leading into tbetn, as in Baltimore and other acUve business cities. The company would then fisel justified In expending large sn ms of money in the erection ot spacious depot bntldlngs such as we trust wiii be needed for the transaction of the bnsinese brought to tbe city by tbe construction of this road. If tbe company is to be com pelted topail up stakes at any moment w? cannot expect them to bBild aaythinf bat I temporary structures; and we cannot expec citizens will in ???t mun?y in ereotiu* cost. '7 wtrtlioB?M U).n may be rmdrrrd TxlutlHi at any moment. Tbe part of tbe city so occhpied now U better adapted to railroad purpo*e? lb ad any other in the city. It it for the most part an unhealthy, broken ravine, thaderive* all its imoorUnce from iu railroad track. Tbe talk by tbe speculators that the "desertion and desolation andauisaace" there 1 existing to dne to tbe railroad is the pure*' nonsen??. It might just as well be claimed tbat tbe "desertion and desolation and nuisance" further *own the valley, along Jame? Creek, is dne to the railroad ! If this city exUto a thousand years from now, tbi* low. malarial ground along the Tiber, towards the boundary, will always be deeerted for any other than buslnest purposes, such as a rail, rand only rnn create, it affords a natural path lor a railroad, and is fit for little else thin railroad business. As regards the bill berore tbe City Councils *' presume tbat the occasion for its passage is fully understood. Tbe Railroad Company bad determined not to enter tbe city by a direct route from Rockville, but to intersect the Washington branch at or near Biadensburg entering tbis city by their present track from tbat point, tbus saving a large outlay in road construction, ana avoiding the delay o' p'tiing a right of way from this Corpora. Uou. To tbis elbow route" very serious

objections were felt by the people of tbis city who desiiCD the most direct possible oon' nection with the West, and who dreaded ibat if tbe Metropolitan Koad, instead of coming direct to the city, snoald diverge to intersect the Washington Branch at Blad-ns. burg or Laurel, thnt the trade coining over the road would be diverted to Baltimore instead o< coming to Warhington. Indeed the charge was made tbat tbe proposed divergence of route towards Baltimore was intended for the benefit of tliat city. There was also tbe very important consideration that tbe construction of a new road directly into the city would cause a very large expenditure of money in onr midst, besides affording employment to a large number of our people. Inl)ue-c?d by these considerations. Mayor Waliacb and some of the prominent business men of tbe city made urgent representations t0 tbe management of tbe Baltimore and Ohio Uailroad, asking that tbey would abandon tb" plan of divergiug to Biadensburg. and come direct to Washington. Upon tnese representa. tions tbe management of that road reopen d the question, and after some consideration of tbe subject, and the running of some addi tional surveys, cousented to adopt the direct route, If enabling legislation bv the Councils could be bad seasonably 1 hey very justly asked tbat if tbey made tbis change of plan to snbsei ve the interests of V\ ashingtou that a sufficient extension of time of the privilege ef entering the city should be made to justify them in constructing tbe requisite depot buildings, and in tbe large additional outlay for the construction of the road required bv the change. Tbis is the plain his" lory ol tbe whole proceeding. , It now remains to be seen whether the same blighting Influences that have killed every Kimt public enterprise ever started for the benefit of W ashington shall defeat tbis import ant me?turr. We think thai a very heavy re! sponsibihty will rest upon those who cause iu detent.
