Ji VILY PRESS. PORTLAND. Thursday Morning, December 20, 1866. The Uniue State Prow, y Published this morning, contains Senator jUorriU’s remarks.on the Suffrage bill; Mr. Stevens’s hill for the reorganisation of North C irolina; an extract from the report ol Secre - tarv MoCulloqh,.touching the . decline in ship building ; an account of a Canadian annexa tionist; a communication from “Traxi", on the influence of climate upon plants; the details of •lii' T’! II.'Morse's'unfortunate agreement with ihe Confederate agents in England ; together with the usual variety of foreign and domestic neivs, Congressional proceedings, market re ports, shipping news, &e., &e. >rhe Parllui and Kachmler Ruilioml, Public attention, irom peculiar circumstan ces, is now directed toward this railroad, which during the past year has been relieved of, its early embarrassments, by the payment ot a prior mortgage, and the conversion of ' the remaining ope into stock, so that the whole road as built and operated to Saco riv et'—the grading of eight miles toward Alfred — die adjustment of land damages to an equal extent—ami the substantial stone piers and abutments completed tor the reception of the ‘ Wood Work of the bridge over the Saco river, stands lit $550,000 and i3 represented by 5,500 • shares." This railroad came into existence through flic influence of the Boston and Maine Rail road Company, and its present charter con tains a provision for the lease of the road and franchise, to that corporation; but the East ern Railroad Compauy having obtained a charter for a railroad from Portsmouth to Portland under the title of the Portsmouth, Saco and Portland Railroad Company, a year later, pushed It forward with such energy, that n compromise was entered into between the two companies, by Which the two roads swerv ed from their original courses and united at Berwick, and the same companies eventually leased the Portsmouth, Saco and Portland rail road for a period of 09 years. The latter road has since been mu as a tributary to Boston, and its time tables so arrange 1 to that end that the citizens even of Saco and Biddeford, hut 15 miles distant, are unable to come to Portland, do their business here, and return the same day. At a later period, the Atlautic and St. Law rence Railroad Company was projected, and as the inconvenience ol the western outlet of the city being controlled by a commercial rival was felt, the citizens of Portland had eugrafted upon the charter obtained front this State a provision that the road should not be tapped within its boundaries, on the western side, by any other railroad. The Atlantic and St. Lawrence Railroad Co. was a popular institution in Portland and had many extraordinary appropriations and privi :;ges granted it by the city. The citizens of Poitiand contributed about a million of dol lars to its stock, while the city advanced its credit by issues of bonds to the amount of two millions (in all more than thirty percent, upon the entire taxable valuation),of which about one million beyond the amount of the sinking fund remains unpaid, but is amply se cured by the first mortgage upon the railroad and franchise. This road has passed from the control of the citizens of Portland, and is now operated by a foreign company, and although projected and built by our people, js run in opposition to their interests. The same arrangement ex ists on this as on other railroads entering the city; passengers irom distant places are tick eted through to Boston at us low a price as to Portland, provided they keep on in the same train. Freight over the Atlantic and St. Law rence or Grand Trunk railroad is and has been carried to and from Boston at lower rates than to and from Portland, although the former city is 1X0 miles beyond, while com plaints have been made and still exist of fa voritism in its transmission. Our merchants, in order to do business upon terms as advan tageous as are granted to those of Boston, often enter their Hour as bound there, taking it out here, thereby saving some 10 cents per barrel upon it. i uus li win De seen mat mosi oi me rail loads entering into Portland are operated an tagonistically to her interests, and if she has derived any benefits therefrom it has been owing entirely to her peculiarly favorable po sition. The city still sull'ets under this man agement ; it is time her interests were attend ed to, and if a reform cannot otherwise be ac complished, it may become a question wheth er the convenience of the public does not de mand a change in the mode of transporting the cars through Commercial stfeet, and if necessary the delay of through passenger and freight cars until after business hours. It is believed, however, that the city of Portland can otherwise apply a remedy to ex isting evils, and prevent their recurrence. The Portland and Rochester Railroad Company is now in a situation to push forward that work; its course is thiough Westbrook, Gor ham, Buxton, Hollis, Waterboro, Alfred, San ford and Lebanon to Rochester, where it in tersects the Great Falls and Conway and Do ver and Winnipissiogee railroads, connecting thereby with the Boston & Maine and East ern railroads leading to Bostou. The connection with the Great Falls and Conway railroad secures to Portland the en tire ti ade ol the western part of Maine, whila ‘ the Dover and Winnipissiogee railroad re stores to Portland a very considerable portion of the business of New Hampshire and Ver mont, which was lost to her by the construc tion of railroads to Boston. The railroad to be constructed from Hollis to Rochester is twenty-eight miles in length, with grades pe culiarly favorable, and even more so than those of any other railroad in the State for the same distance. The Portland and Rochester railroad con tinues from Rochester to Candia, twenty-ora miles from Rochester, where it connects with the Portsmouth and Concord railroad, run ning over it nine miles to Manchester. 1'he Legislature of New Hampshire at its last session granted to the Portland and Rochester Railroad Company an additional charter for a railroad from Rdchester, N. H., to Manchester. This portion of the road will he constructed by cities, towns and corpora tions interested in its location, and at the suggestion of members of the latter, a clause was inserted in the charter giving the Com pany the privilege of leasing it, providing it should be found advantageous to do so. Ev ery assurance desired was given that it should be completed at a date as early as the part of the road from Saco River to Rochester, pro vided the latter should be constructed with out the issue of bonds secured by mortgage upon the railroad. Manchester rests upon the Concord, Man chester & Lawrence railroad, midway, the northen. portion connecting the Portland * Rochester road with Lake Ontario, by the Northern New Hampshire, the Vermont Cen tral and the < tgdensburg railroads to Ogdens burg. The distance fitm Portland to Ogdensburg is as follows: Portland to Rochester, 45 miles. Rochester to Candia, 21 “ Candia to Manchester, 9 “ Manchester to Concord, 17 “ Concord to White River Junc tion, 69 “ White River Junction to Rouse’s Point, 144 “ Rouse’s Point to Ogdensburg, 118 “ 423 Distance from Prescott opposite to Ogdensburg on the St. Law rence, to Montreal, 120 “ Montreal to Portland, 293 “ Grand Trunk Route. 413 “ At Ogdensburg every facility exists for the storage of flour and grain and the transmis sion of the latter article by means of elevators. Large steamers traverse the Lukes, making Ogtlenshurg llieir Northern depot, and run- I niug in successful competition with the shore railroads. It lias been observed tliat “Manchester stands midway of the Concord, Manchester and Lawrence railroad, the northern portion connecting (lie Portland and Rochester rail road with the Lakes.” Just so the southern portion connects it with New York by the way of Worcester, oyer the Worcester and Nashua railroad, making a saving of twenty miles travel between Portland and New York, and of at least two dollars to every passenger to and from New York", including expenses, at , Boston. By the arrangements now existing, cars leave Manchester at halt-past 4 O’clock, P. M. daily, (excepting Sundays,) for New York. Consequently passengers leaving Portland at 1 o’clock by the Portland and Rochester rail road, will be at Manchester in season to take tbe half past 4 o’clock train, and their baggage can be ticketed through to New York, an ad vantage which travelers can appreciate. Tbe Portland and Rochester .railroad is owned, except a trifling amount,, by the citi zenseof Portland, and with a subscription of. less than two per cent, upon the taxable val uation of the city, the whole railroad and equipment can be secured opening ft direct avenue within ouh own oountby to the Lakes and to New York, and upon the first day of October next, through its completion, the city may stand disenthrailed from exist ing monopolies—our merchants assured of the early transmission of their freight—addi tional avenues opened to trade—railroads costing upward of forty millions of dollars converted to her daily use—the proprietors of real estate, within the city, secured tor its ad ditional cost, by its enhanced valuation—the necessary means provided for the defence of city and State—and the whole people made to rejoice in the cheering prospect not only of an increasing business but of a continuous supply of cheap bread. The Cieargia Equal Righto Awaeialiau. This association was formed ou the 10th day of last January, and has been undoubtedly of great service to the Freedmen of Georgia and their lriends. Its last session, at Macon, was attended by eighty-six delegates repre senting forty-one counties. The association is composed entirely of colored men, but in con sideration of the inexperience of the delegates in all matters of business, after due delibera tion Capt. J. E. Bryant, of Maine, was request ed to preside at their meetings. Capt. Bryant is the editor of the Loyal Georgian, and has been conspicuous for his devoted labors in be half of this long oppressed people. it is to be regretted that an unfortuuate quarrel with Gen. Tillson, the Assistant Commissioner of the Freedmen’s Bureau for Georgia, has prevented the hearty co-opera tion of two Maine men, engaged in the same work, and both no doubt actuated by the best of motives. We mentioned last summer the scene at a meeting of the Council of the Associa tion, at which Gen. Tillson took occasion to be present and allowed himself to use very severe language respecting Capt. Bryant. The Coun cil at the time passed a resolution thanking Gen. Tillson for his speech and another express ing unabated confidence in Capt. Bryant The seeming contradiction is easily explained. The members ot the Council, like the people of Maine, were disposed to overlook the heated allegations of either gentleman against the other, and to recognize the actual merits of both. As this action, however, was open to miscon struction, the Association at its recent meeting chose to set itself right by adopting the follow ing resolution: Resolved, That whereas General Davis Till son camo into a meeting of the Council of this Association, and denounced our President— Capt. J. E. Bryant—as a liar, a scoundrel, a beggar and a villain, and whereas a vote of thanks was passed by the Council for his speech, not intending thereby to thank him for denouncing our President,but for the valuable information which the speech contained, con cerning matters which were of interest to our people, and did not relate to Capt. Bryant, and whereas the intention of the members of the Council in passing the resolution has been misunderstood, we direct the Secretary of the Council to expunge the resolution from the records of the Council. The following resolution was offered, but was defeated by a vote of 24 to 21, many delegates refusing to vote: Resolved, That this Convention denounce General Tillson for charging one of our best friends—the President of this Association— with being a liar, a scoundrel, a beggar and a villain, and we assure all persons that we have full confidence in the honesty, integrity and faithful labors in our behalf of Capt. Bryant. This sufficiently indicates the estimation in which Capt. Bryant is held by the Association. We take occasion again to express our regret at this unfortunate difficulty, and also our strong disapprobation of the course of the Loy al Georgian towards Gen. Tillson. If he is guilty of the charges with which the Georgian teems, the proof should be brought before the Head of the Bureau. So long as the proof is wanting, his character should not be assailed through the columns of a journal addressed to the very people whose confidence he ought especially to enjoy. If anything could excuse the language used by Gen, Tillson, it would be the ungenerous treatment which he has receiv ed from the Loyal Georgian. A personal con troversy of this nature ought never to have arisen, and should now cease. a Inti1 and L«|iilBlite OlUorri. Mb. EditobThe Star of Tuesday evening has the slate made up for the organization of the Legislature. The editor says that for President of the Sen ate the contest will be between Mr. Woodman of Portland and Col. Porter of Penobscot, and for Speaker of the House between Mr. Barker of Stetson and Mr. Woodman of Bucksport, and then goes on to say that his friend Col. Rust stands a good chance for Secretary of' State, although Col. Smith will run well. I differ with the editor in regard to this office.— Col. Rust has been brought forward by his friends in Norway in order to head off General Perry, and will perhaps get three votes. The editor of the Star isin the dark as to a change in the Treasurership. I will enlighten him by giving him the information that the present able Treasurer is a candidate for re-election, and will be eleoted by a large vote, but not unanimously, for there are some folks who would like to get rid of him on account of his persistency in maintaining his Temperance principles. Fually the editor reaches the gentleman for whose benefit the article was written. The editor says that there will be but little opposition to Gen. Shepley for Attorney General. He may be better inlormed than I am, but my information warrants me in saying that there will be a strong opposition to the General from the Temperance members of the Legislature. They believe that the Law officer of the State should be a man who will sustain the Maine Law. Gen. Shepley is not a Maine Law man in any sense of the word, and I do not believe that the Temperance men, who are a majority in the Legislature, will so stultify themselves as to elect a man to so important a position, who has no sympathy w hatever with them. If they do they had better repeal the Liquor act at once. Let them select such a man as Judge Davis of this city, and no power can prevent his elec tion. e. The Engine Dbiveb.—When a man has a liking tor a thing its as good as being clever.— In a very short time I became one of the best drivers on the Line. That was allowed. I took a pride in it, you see, and liked it. No, I didn’t know much about the engine scientifi cally, as you call it; but 1 conld put her to rights if anything went out of gear—that is to say, if there was nothing broken—but I could not have explained how the steam worked in side. Starting an engine is just like drawing a drop of gin. You turnti handle and off she goes, then you turn the handle the other way, put on the brakes, and you stop her. There’s not much more in it, so far. It’s no good being scientific and knowing the principle of the engine inside; no good at all. Fitters, who know all the ins and outs of the engine, make the worst drivers. That’s well known. They know too much. It’s just as I’ve heard cf a man with regard to hia inside: if he knew what a complicated machine it is, he would never eat, or drink, or dance, or run, or do any thing, for fear of bursting something. So it is with fitters. But us as are not troubled with such thoughts we go ahead. But starting an engine’s one thing, and driv ing of her is another. Any one, a child a’most, can turn on the steam, and turn it off again; hut it ain't every one that can keep a engine well on the road, no more than it am t every one who can ride a horse properly. It is much the same thing. If .von gallop a horse right • off for a mile or two, you take the wind out of him and for the next mile or two you must let him’trot or walk. So it is with a engine. If you put on too much steam, to get over the ground at the start, you exhaust the boiler and then you’ll have to crawl along till your trash water boils up. The great thing in driving is, to go steady, never to let your water get too low. It’s the same with a kettle. If you fill it up when it’s about half empty, it soon comes to the boil again. Another thing: you should never make spurts, unless you are detained and lose time. You sliquJd go up an; incline aud down an incline atilie same pace. Sometime'S' a driver will waste liis steam, aud when lie comes to a hill he lias scarcely enough to drag linn up. \Vhen you’re in a train that goes by fit's and Starts, Vou irfay be sure tha* there is a bad driver on the engine. That kind of driv ing ftightehS'^asSChgers dreadful. When the train, after rattling along, suddenly slacks its speed when it ain't near a station, it may be in the middle of a tunnel, the passengers think there is danger. But generally it’s because the driver has exhausted his steam.—[From Dick en’s Christmas Story, “ Mugby Junction." SPECIAL NOTICES. Hf E W BOOKS FOB THE HOLIDAYS ! WHOLESALE AND RETAIL !
