f YULY PItESS. POllTLAWW Tuesday Morning. December 18, 1366. . * —•■» ■* Hon la Build Railroad*. It is twenty-four years this very month i ince the Portland, Saeo and Portsmouth rail i ead met the Boston and Maine at South Ber wick. and the first locomotive came hissing ;,i„l putting along the track and stopped at the base of Bramliall’s hill. A short line had previously been opeued between Baugor and < Udtown, and retains u> this day some oi the curious carriages then in use. Within the quarter of a century which has since elapsed, railway communication lias been established between Portland and Montreal, and two long liues have been built across the State, the one to Bangor and the other through Augusta to bkowhegan. At the present moment a road is in contemplation and will undoubtedly he built, connecting the lower Kennebec .ith Penobscot Kay, and sure to follow the Penoli teot ultimately to llangor. A branch of the Maine Central will before long be pushing its way up into Piscataquis county. The Maine Central itself is seeking an independent route from Danvill# Junction to this city. The Buekfield branch of the Grand Trunk ought to be extended to Canton. Aroostook county needs and will have an outlet for its produc tions. On opposite side? of the State two great undertakings arc on loot. After dis esura mg delays work has been actually be gun on the European aud North American railway, a work as important to the State at large as the Atlantic and St. Lawrence, and for precisely similar reasons. On the other hand the Portlaud and Rochester road lacks only a few miles of completion, and promises the advantages of a more direct communica tion with New York, and of a new avenue (or Western products, to say nothing of the trade which will be attracted in this direction from New Hampshire and Vermont. That all these enterprises are justified oi principles of sound economy, is a propositioi which at this day hardly needs demonstra tion. The advantages of rapid and chea] communication have been too often and to< clearly set forth. Wliatevei tends todiminiel the cost of transportation, relieves alike tin producer and consumer, and the railroad witl its steam winds and iron tides oilers the bes substitute for water carriage, and the cheaj est even at the present exorbitant tariff. Th only important question now is, how shal these roads be built ? Shall they be built oi credit, or for cash ? by private subscription o by public aid? The experiment of buildiuj railroads on credit has been thoroughly triei in this State, and has lesulted—well, unfay orably. Maine Central stock is now quote* at 11 or 12 cents on the dollar, and Andros eoggiu stock is “worthless.” All the rest ar like these. People taking stock in roads to b built, even in part, on credit, now understan that they are simply contributing to that ex tent for the public good. But why shoul not the public pay for what is lor the publi good? That brings us to the cimsideratio: of a law which has been for more than tw years in operation In New Hampshire, wine has been found very useful there, and to whicl we respectfully invite the attention of th Maine Legislature at its approach ing*sessioi It runs as fellows: Section 1. Any town or city in this Stat* may at any legal meeting duly notified an holdeu for that purpose, raise by tax or loa such sums of money as they shall deem expc dient, not exceeding five per cent, of the valu ation of such town or city, as made by the as sessors thereof for the year in which said meel ing shall be held, and may appropriate th same to aid in the construction of any railroa* in this State, in such manner as they shall deer proper, provided that two-thirds of the lega voters present ami voting at such meeting shal vote therefor. Sec. 2 Any town or city mav make sue contracts with any person or any railroad coi noration, now or hereafter existing under th laws of this State, for the purpose mentions* in the preceding section, as they may think ne cessary, and may raise money by tax or loan t* carry the same into effect, not exceeding th* amount of said five per cent. Sect. 3. Any town or city raising money l>; loan under the provisions of this act, shall rais. in each year, commencing the third year afte »ch loan shall be effected, a sum not Jess that ree per cent, of the amount of such loan, t< be applied to the liquidation of the principa of such loan in addition to the interest. Sec. 4. No town or city shall be liable for thi debts of any such person or railroad corpora tiou, bespnd the amouut appropriated or con tractod for by such town or city. Sec. 5. Whenever any town or city shall holi any stock In any railroad, the selectmen art authorized to vote thereon at all meetings o such corporation, and may appoint an ugem for that purpose by writing under their hands. Sec. 6. This act shall take effect on its pa» sage. If our roads must be built for cash, as is now certain; if immediate returns are to be expected not merely in the form of dividends, but mainly in an increased volume of busi ness benefitting the entire community; il it is desirable furthermore that the public should have a voice in the management of the roads, what more prudent or equitable method of raising the necessary funds can be devised, than a contribution from the towns and cities which are to be mainly benetitted ? The importance to the community of retain ing some control over interests so weighty, is daily becoming more obvious. The time may come when a railroad owned by a private cor poration and managed solely for its advan tage will be as obsolete as a toll-bridge. The New York Senatorshtp.—The Legis lature of New York will meet on the first day of January, and will proceed at au early date to fill the vacancy in the United States Senate occasioned by the expiration of Mr. Harris’s term. Among the candidates who have been named are Mr. Greeley, Mr. G. W. Curtis, Mr. Fred. Douglass, and Mr. Koscoe CoRkling. Mr. Greeley’s late recommendation of universal am nesty, with or without universal suffrage, has probably injured his prospect. Mr. Curtis, un fortunately, is not “in politics,’’and will com mand but a light vote. Mr. Douglass is nomi nated by Wendell Phillips in the Anti-Slavery Standard, and the nomination is not equivalent to an election. On the whole, Mr. Conkling’s chance is perhaps the best, and if he should be chosen the country will have no cause to re ffret it. Mr. Conkling is now less than forty years old. He is serving for the third term in Congress and is known as one of the ablest and truest men in the House. His services on the famous Committee of Fifteen, and in other ca pacities, have brought him prominently before the country. A little of his youthful fire will add a pleasant warmth to the sometimes rather frigid debates of the Senate. Erratum.—A serious error in Traxi’s last communication makes him say that “the grapes are perhaps the most valuable crop in the Uni ted States.” Careful readers must have seen from the context that the word should have been grasses. The Author of “Ecce Homo.”—Before leaving religious affairs, let me say that Prof Seeley oi University College, to whom the authorship of Ecce Homo has been pub licly traced—though to many it was known last June that he wrote it—is a young Cam bridge man who succeeded Prof. Newman as teacher of Latin in that college. He is a small thin man, with an intelligent butHomewhut etfeininate face, beardless, blue-eyed, flaxen haired, and has always been very much belov ed by the stnJeuts. I beard him deliver his inaugural address when heentered upon his duties, and it was the finest essay on the rela tive importance of classical studies that I have heard. Mr. G-rote, who sat behind him during the delivery of it, manifested openly his de light at the address, and lie, with Prof. New man and others present, pressed forward to grasp the hand of the young man who before that—about two years ago—was almost un known. Professor Seeley has always seem ed to me the most perfect representative of that colorless kind of thought which the enforced religious neutrality of Universitv College tends to produce, and which has just decided that a man with real convictions, like James Martineau, must not he received as one of its faculty. I should state, however, which I do on personal knowledge, that Prof. Seeley was warmly in favor of Mr. Martineau’s election Mr. Robertson, who was the chief candidate for the Professorship of Moral Philosophy and Logic against Martineau, and who will prob ably get the chair, is a young Scotchman of giva' ability. He wasa pupil >>f Baynes anil is | now principal ol' au academy at Inverness, which is celebrated for the superior drill and ; knowledge of the youths who coni' troin it to i the Scottish and English universities. M. 1). Conway in the Commonwealth. The ytirlhplare of Dmjniiiiii West. To the EnrrOR of the Press: The traveller on the Philadelphia & West Chester Railroad, as lie approaches the, West dale station, lias pointed nut to him on the right of the road, a two-story farmhouse as the birthplace ol Benjamin West, the ianious American painter. It is situated on the upper edge of a wide meadow which slopes gently towards the Delaware and commands all ex tensive view of plain and valley, with now and then a hit of wood, the landscape termin ating in the highlands in New Jersey across the river. As we approach the premises, go ing out from Philadelphia, we sec on the left of the house an ample stone ham, made still larger by the addition of a wooden structure; and near by, the spring-house, so common on all the dairy farms in Pennsylvania. Leaving the cars at the station, we pass up the old road on which West took that famous horseback rule when he declined to sit behind his schoolmate who invited him to the ex cursion; a ride that was suddenly terminated by the embryo painter when lie found that his mate had determined to become a tailor. A short walk up this road brings us to the front gate of the premises. A few yards down a gentle slope we see, through the ample foliage of the trees which ornament the lawn, that the house is a square building of stone, and that it shows signs of having been built many gene rations ago. At the right hand corner a stout woodbine has made its way up to the eaves, and there spreading throws outran arm that embraces the front, and another that stretches across the end. The robin, who loves to find a shelter among human habitations, has built her nest iii this vine. un entering the trout cloor, we find a very wide hall passes through the building and opens out on a broad piazza in the rear. The first door on on- left opens into a room where, on the 10th of Oct., 1738, Benjamin, the tenth son of John and Sarah West, was born. The house is said to be moro than two hundred years old, and the room of to-day is the same as it was in 1738. In one corner of this nur ery we find that convenient three-cornered fixture which is so common in very old houses, a buf fet, the upper half with glazed doors, wherein 1 the ambitious housekeeper was wont to display 1 her bright silver and her beautiful, painted ! china; and the lower half a close cupboard.— i Between the upper and lower half a leaf t draws out, on which we may presume young - West made some of his early efforts at paiut ? ing. Certain it is, that in that room, then used I as a nursery, ho, when left at the age of six t years, to take care of his infant sister, drew . her likeness with a pen in red and black ink. ' And it is related that when his mother return | ed,he attempted to conceal his picture, but she seized it and exclaimed td her daughter, “he has made a likeness of little Sally.” She * j was so much pleased that she gave her son a ■'mud kiss, of which in after life he said, “My - mother’s kiss made me a painter.” Deterrn ; ined to be a painter, he continued his efforts, 1 painting birds, fruit and flowers. Some ln . diaus were so much pleased with these little 1 pictures, that they taught West how to make , red and yellow colors, and his mother added j indigo. But he could not put the colors on } with a pen, aud being told that it was done with a camel’s hair brush, and having no means of procuring one, he used as a substitute the 1 fur on the cat’s back and tail. ! Not loug after this a gentleman in Phila • delphia sent him a box of paints and pencils and some prepared canvas, and now young West entered on his work with such en thusiasm that he forgot his school. Of course the nursery, where we have thus far stood while telling our story, was no longer a fit place to work in. If we stop out of doors and take a look at the end of the house, we notice l that the roof is what is called “gambrel,” a j style of building that gives ample garret room, j Up there, where he had^OW'light of two win dows in the end of his studio, West carried his * paints, brushes and canvas; and there from j two engravings which his friend had sent him, ( h« composed a picture of which he said sixty • seven years afterwards, that there were in it J touches of art which, with all his subsequent knowledge and experience he had not been able r to surpass. ' Before leaving the building made famous as j the birth-place and the scene of the early cf i forts of the first American painter of his time, we will look into the ample kitchen which con nects with the nursery. The remarkable fea ture oi the room is the huge chimney which occupies lteavly the entire side of the apart ment. The large tire-place is flanked on each side with a capacious closet, which for conven ience of keeping things is not surpassed by what are called modern improvements. The two rooms on the other side of the hall are re markable only in one particular. A single chimney at the end of the house supplies the rooms with a fire-place which is a triangular affair in the corner of each room. Westdalc, as well a > all the] region rental about Philadelphia, was settled by the follow ers of William Penn, and mauy of them con tinue to this day in the rural districts. Here, on an eminence overlooking the farm on which West was born, the Orthodox Friends are erecting a college, for the foundation of which they have subscribed 8200,000. It is a very se cluded spot, with nothing to break the silence save][the infrequent signal [of the locomotive. J. S. of Maine. Philadelphia, Dec. 13,186G. New Publications. Laboula yk’h Faiby Book.—Fairy tales of all nations. By Edward Laboulayo, Member of the Institute of France. Translated by Mary L. Booth, translator of “Martin’s His tory ol France,” etc. New York: Harper and Brothers. People’s sense is very much alike; it is the cast of their nonsense which infallibly dis tinguishes the blockhead from the genius.* — So says somebody, somewhere; and we were never more forcibly reminded of the very truthful remark than in looking over this vol ume. To many American readers who have been accustomed to think of Professor Labou laye only as the brilliant academician, the clear-sighted statesman, or as the most earnest and appreciative of the friends of America in Europe, it may be a surprise to learn that he is also a delightful humorist, and one of the most charming of story-tellers. The talcs in this volume were written for the amusement of his little grand-daughter to whom the book is dedicated iu the daintiest of pre faces. To it is also prefixed a brief address to the author’s “young friends iu America," in which after referring pleasantly to the ancient friendship between his country and theirs, he says: “It is in order to keep up this mutual affiee tion that I send you these tales, which I hope will amuse you also. He who writes them is not a stranger to your fathers and mothers ;lie was heart and soul with them in the trials which they have nobly passed through. To day he would esteem himself happv could he make you laugh or dry up your tears ; and noth ing would touch him moro than sometimes to think that over yonder, on the other side of the ocean, there were young gentlemen and charm ing young ladies who forgot the hours in listen ing to the tales of their friend, the old French man.” And in a note to the translator, he says: “My grand-daughter, who is now five years old,and is going to learn English, is very proud to think tuat her name will he known in America.” Tin; stories are twelve in number, and are printed in a very handsome duodecimo of 3<i0 pages ami finely illustrated. For sale by Davis Brothers. The Atlantic Monthly begins the New lear royally. Such a conjunction of brilliant literary names has seldom appeared in a single number ot any magazine. f',rrtt we have three chapters of Dr. Holmes’ promised st ,ry “The Guardian Angel,” winch plainly show’s that the author of the “Autocrat,” and “Elsie Ven ncr,”has lost none of bis peculiar power. These aro followed by a humorous story in verse liy .James Kussetl Lowell, and by a "Plea for Cul ture” written by Mr. Higginson, and contain ing some reflections which aro in danger ofbe lng overlooked in this terribly “practical” age. 'Henry Ward Beecher’s Church” forms the subject of a graphic sketch in Parton’s pe culiar vein; Air. Trowbridge furnishes another oi his attractive stories under the title. "The Alan who stole a Aleeting House;” Bayard Taylor tells a characteristic story of “The Strange Friend i” Air. Shanley gives a humor ous sketch of ‘Capillary Freaks;” E. C. Steil man otfersa poem ou “Pan in Wall Street;” and \\ alter Mitchell describes the “Kingdom of In fancy.” Whittier's" Palatine,” ami Emerson’s Terminus, are both exquisite poems of their kind. The chief poetical attraction of the number will however be Air. Bry ant 8,-j. translation of “The Contention between Achilles and Agamemnon, from ™e First book of the Iliad. A great »<»<•( should only.be translated by a poet; and dr. Bryaut’s version of this passage reads like ill English poem, full offeree and compact ness as well as of sweetness and noble dignity, '"t political matter we have a paper by C. M. i'jIus, on “The Causes for which a President ■an be impeached,” giving the results of some lawful research, and also an appeal for impar ialsuffrage by Federick Douglass.

Grant; the former having liimsel* procured for her a long list of subscribers. Prof. Longfel low, Capt, Ericsson, and Marshall O. Roberts subscribe for seventy copies; Edwin Booth for one hundred. We do not wonder in the least. It is the most successtul attempt at adaptation to infant minds we have yet seen. It is published at $1.50 per annum. A. Wil liams & Co., Boston, general agents.
