HODSDON, No. P Clapp’s Block, CONGRESS STREET. febldlw DAILY PRESS. PORTLAND. Saturday Morning, February 2, 1867. Steam Communication wiili Urn Wnl. The necessity of a through route to the West competing with the Grand Trunk, and the de sirability of a road or roads which shall restore to us the trade of northern Vermont and New Hampshire, are freely acknowledged. An» undertaking which promises to secure these results is sure of a favorable consideration. The enterprise which can most promptly and cheaply give us these advantages will be taken up and completed with the utmost alacrity and uuanimity. What is needed just at this time is information. What are the distances and grades by the different routes proposed? What will be the comparative cost of construc tion ? Which will furnish the most n umerous and advantageous connections? We purpose to do our part towards answering these questions. Such information as can be obtained tram time to time, we shall lay before our readers, and as a beginning we propose to give the dis tances by the various routes as far as they can be ascertained, first proceeding to recite some of tbe steps which have already been taken to secure the connection with Montpelier and Ogdensburg. A charter was obtained in November last from the State of Vermont, granting the privi lege of building a railroad from Montpelier to St. Johnsbury, with a branch from Marshfield to Wells river, 23 miles, tbe whole distance to St Johnsbury and Wells river being between 37 and 30 miles, aboat one mile in favor of tbe latter place. It was the intention of parties id Portland favoring the connection to obtain the renewal of an old charter for a railroad from Montpe lier to V. ells river, which had been thoroughly surveyed, and an arrangement was made to that effect; but the fire at Portland caused the individuals in charge of the trust to believe that nothing would be done with the charter for the present year. They consequently deter red giving notice of the intended application to the Legislature for its renewal. An ar rangement was made however with the parties Interested in the St Johnsbury railroad to in sert a clause giving them the privilege of building a branch road to Wells river: but so favorably was the connection with Portland looked upon by the Legislature of Vermont that a provision was incorporated in the act, that the grant should not interfere with the re newal of the old charter from Montpelier to Wells river. At a meeting of the citizens of Portland called at the Exchange reading room on the 14th of January, In relation to a more direct connection with Ogdensburg, resolutions were passed affirming its necessity, and our repre sentatives in the Legislative were requested to obtain a charter therefor. At this meeting, no route was designated, but a gentleman of St. Johnsbury present, gave it as his opiuion, that a shorter route could be ibund by way ot St. Johnsbury and Dalton, than by existing railroads even with the gap of 12 or 14 miles between Lake city and Alton hay completed by the extension ot the Dover and Winneplsiogee railroad. It does not appear however that any survey, or even roconnisance has ever been made of the proposed route. St. Johnsbury stands upon the Passumpsic railroad, 21 miles north of Wells river, and just that distance farther from Portland by any existing or possible railroad route thither. Dalton lies east from St. Johnsbury and about midway between the Passumpsic and Grand Trunk railroads. The face of the country between St. Johnsbury and Dalton is hilly aud rough, which renders the location of a railroad both circuitous and expensive, as it would be necessary to cross the streams in stead of iobowing the vabeys. Persons ac quainted with that trartot Mew ttMniMSilw are of the opinion, that* the two places could not be connected with less than 40 mbes of railroad. Dalton is situated southwest of Gorham, N. U., and 25 miles distant there from. Now if we add the 21 miles which St Johnsbury lies distant north of Webs river,’ to the 40 miles between St. Johnsbury aud Dalton,which makes 60 miles, and deduct it from that portion of the Boston, Concord and Montieal railroad now operated towards Port land, we shall finl ourselves at a point between Weir's aud Lake village, three miles from the latter place. gj This point is 16 miles west of Alton Bay and 15 mbes from San born ton on the Boston, Concord and Montreal Hail road, (which place may hereafter be referred to,) aud should stand equi-distant with Dalton from Portland, (ab other considerations being equal,) to bring the St. Johnsbury and Dalton route into com petition with the Portland aud Rochester road. The several routes stand thus: Dalton to Gorham, 25 miles. Gorham by Grand Trunk, 5(1 “ Dalton to Portland, 110 “ Dalton by the Peabody river and through the Saco Valley to Sa co river, 135 “ Saco river to Portland, 18 “ Dalton to Portland, 163 “ If a route west of the Franconia Mountains is available, measuring by dividers, without variation for bibs or other obstacles, except ing tbe Franconia Mountains, Dalton stands distant 140 miles. The distances by the Portland and Roches ter route can be given with entire accuracy. From the point near T ' .. 3ay, lfl miles. 20 “ . 46 “ Lake Village to Portland, 82 “ This route requires the building of 88 miles of railroad, and admitting the assurance that the road from Montpelier to St. Johnsbury “is as good as built,” or will be completed in another year, 22 additional miles from Wells river to Marshfield will connect Portland with Ogdensburg by way of Montpelier. Another route in connection with the Port land and Rochester railroad occupies, at the present moment, the pubUc attention; and that is the route obtained by building a rail road between Alton Ray and Franklin, N. H. This road would he a little less than 20 miles in length. Sixteen miles will connect the Dover and Winneplsiogee road with the Bos ton, Concord and Montreal road, at Sanbora ton, and four miles in addition with the North ern New Hampshire railroad at Franklin, bringing these two lines ot railroad from Hi to ten mile* nearer to Portland than to Boo ton. Passing over the Northern New Hampshire railroad to White River Junction, a connec tion may be formed with the contemplated railroad from White River Junction through Woodstock to Rutland, and so with the New Fork Central railroad. The question arises, how are these roads to be built ? In answer, it is incumbent on Port land, Rochester and the intermediate towns and the stockholders to complete the Port land and Rochester Railroad. The Boston and Maine Railroad Company (with the aid of the towns immediately inter ested) will build either of the railroads from Alton bay to Lake Village or to Franklin, whichever will connect their read to the greatest advantage, with lines leading to the Lakes; as it will fhrnish them with an addi tional business and enable them to compete with the railroads by way of Concord, the distance being about equal, and thus bring their whole line into operation, whereas it now employs but a portion only in the busi ness from Lawrence to Boston. The Boston, Concord and Montreal Rail road Company (and towns contiguous) will assume the railroad between Wells river and Marshfield, as the transportation of flour and grain to Boston and Portland will be an en tire gain to the business of the road, which with the additional passengers passing over 66 miles of the Boston, Concord and Montreal railroad will so contribute to the profits, as to place that oompany among the dividend pay* ing institutions. It would seem from these consider 1 that the Portland and Rochester raifeoad hr i a connection with the Lakes, is tUe mo,t,,rao ticablc, having the fewest miles to build- the most feasible being the shortest and podsesl ing the best grades; the most desirable, fonu ing the most favorabie connections not only with the lines leading to the Lakes, but with side lines such as the New York Ceutral rail road (which would draw to Portland emigrant ships, furnishing the road with a profitable business;) and would famish a direct and cheaper route to the city of New York, while it would annex a large territory with a popu lation accustomed to the luxuries of the world, which would look to Portland for supplies, and for the sale of surplus products. These considerations are only offered as pre liminary to the more exact investigation which will doubtless be made, and the conclu sions to which they point are only to be ac cepted as apparently true, as indicated by our present information but awaiting confirmation by fature enquiry. Maine Maaafnetnrea. Not only is Maine interested in the exten sive cotton mills, owned by wealthy corpora tions, and creating cities on our principal riv ers, but the great mass ol her people have in terests quite os much identified with the less er and more private enterprises located on the smaller streams, that furnish available water power deep in the interior and all over the State. Money is power—and a power not al ways on the side of poor men’s rights; and millions concentrated and wielded in any one place by a ‘-soulless” corporation, may become a power subversive of democratic freedom, danger ons to social equality, if not all—assum ing a haughty contempt of public opinion and defiant of salutary laws. The humbler insti tutions q> industry are safer for the people, and bring the blessings of free labor home to every class of society. Monopolies every where are a doubtful public good. The most equitable distribution of wealth and labor ac oords best with the genius of a republican commonwealth. The woolen mills of Dexter, of Vassalboro’, of Rcadfield, of Bridgton. of Little River, of Sabattus, of Wilton Ac., the paper mills of Mechanic Fails, Uarditter, Skow lregan, Ac.; the Scythe and Edge Tool Factor ies of Belfast, West Waterville, Wayne and Fayette, Saccarappa, Wilton Ac.; the Starch Factories of several of our interior towns; the l>on Factories, the various machine shops, the Sash and Blind Factories that abound among us, the Oil Cloth Carpet establishments of Hallowed and Manchester, the Tin and Brit annia manufacture* of Westbrook, the Shoe shops of Auburu and elsewhere, all these, and kindred works ol local and of domestic indus try, are amougst the things that should receive the encouragement of kind legislation and the public favor. Halt a dozen different kinds of manufac tures carried on in a place by small copartner ships or private individuals^ue better for that place and its vicinage than one mammoth establishment ownei by a power.’ul corpora tion devoted exclusively to a single interest, even though this operates an invest ment to twice the amount of the first named. Indeed, we are always glad to see sewing-ma chines, knitting machines, spinning-jennies and hand-looms operated by women, giving them profitable employment at home, rather than that tbey should be reduced to the ne cessity of repairing to distant cotton mills for unremitting toil. A girl now can earn as much with an improved Hand Loom at home as she can by remaining out at a Factory abroad. A new era is at band for female la borers. Thoughts like the loregoing occurred to the writer as he was returning from a recent vis it to Wilton, Franklin County. The stream which discharges from Wilson's Fond is a re markable one, for the numerous dams that are or may be erected In its course to the Sandy river. Amongst the manufactures at >UwjWpper^VWa|e !s Furneli’s Yam Factory. always gives forth au honest article. Fur nell’s domestic yams are celebrated for the excellence ot their manufacture. Hr. F. is now preparing to manufacture woolen cloths, in addition to his knitting yarns. At the Lower Village, two aud a half miles down the stream, is a Woolen MilJ, which is in lull operation, it has been a profitable in stitution dnring the war. Here also is the celebrated Scythe Factory, formerly conduct ed by that ingenious mechanic, the worthy Mr. Keyes, who died suddenly two years ago, but is now owned aud operated by his equally worthy suiviviug partner, Hiram Holt, Jisq. It gave us pleasure to go through his works and witness the rapidity by which a piece ol au iron bar or steel passed through its diller ent processes till it became a polished scytbe blade ready for the mower's use. He oper ates his works nine mouths in the yeur, man ufactures about seventy-five dozens ot scythes per week, or three thousand dozens per year, giving employment to sixteen hands whose wages average over two and one-half dollars per day. We have heretofore had occasion to know something of the excellency of the Wil ton scythes. There are none better in the country. No defective one is allowed to go into the market. Thqy are all perfect—of the best materials, rightly tempered aud beauti fully formed and finished. He showed us some of his ‘ red backs,” which were worthy a place in the Faris Exposition. Mr. Holt had just returned lroni a business trip to Chicago, Cincinnati, Baltimore, Phila delphia and New York, where he found a ready sale for all he can manufacture. The establishment of such a factory, and of such a man in connection with it, is a great advan tage to that growing village, of which bis fel low citizens aud neighbors are all well aware. Trxxi. The Price mf Money. Although our legislators at Augusta can not quite get rid of the superstition that the price of money Is something which unlike the price of flour ueeds regulating, it is some com ioit to see that they are Indisposed to leave it any longer at a figure which is notorious'y be low the market price. The bill which has passed the Senate leaves to parties to written contracts the privilege of determining the rate of interest not excdlng 8 peree cent. The de bate upon this bill was participated in by Sen ators Verkins, Robie, Boynton,Caldwell, Cros by, Porter and Woodman, and was exceeding ly Interesting. Mr. Robie treated the subject very sensibly, as follows: The question now before the Senate has been discussed at considerable length and the argument lias beeu somewhat exhausted 1 do not wish to speak at leugth on this subject for I should do it at tue risk of repetition 1 appreciate the arguments ol the Senators from \v ashingmn and Venobscot. It is true that a iaige amount of the capital of the State has gone to the tar \\ est wnere money commands a higher premium than here. Tula is to be our great disadvantage. The fact is patent. Several ot our honorable board can personally substantiate this statement. We should re member that where there is little capital there is but little demand tor lobor. Six per cent, is a slow coach in the business world. It does not keep pace with railroad, telegraph, facto ry and other stocks and sale investments where capitalists double the amount invested every two or three years. Six per cent, is not a twin brother to the profits which grow out ol the present exp mdeU currency. It does not extend the right baud ot fellowship to the capitalists abroad to loan money tor the de velopment ol our manufacturing interests, tor building our ships arid for paying our debts, ll tue principle and idea ot tue present law was eulorced and carried out very little busi uess would be done in our State. It would bring ruin and starvation to all kinds of busl bess. There would be no money to do busi ness with, lor it wou.d Beek a better market and labor would naturally follow its wake. In order to meet the natural competition ot traue and business, to sustain a respectable position in the business world the law is habitually vi olated. Subter uges are tesorted to, as suiiiuti our bonds for less Ilian a par value which is equivalent in tact to a higher rate of interest. This is the bridge which carries us safely ov er. Otherwise mechanical labor of all kinds would take its tools and in crests and stall westward, where we are poetically told the star of empire takes its fiigbt,” a ed with more liberality in the usury law than Tgsssssiflaa-.»».ws yesterday, speaks ol the inflated currency, and brings statistics to substantiate the tact; be Is roll oi gloom when he look* into the ftiture ol tlie financial world. The great fi nancial question oi the country is not |nr me ta solve or question. The same great abro gate ol mind which brought into existence a hnaneial policy which has beat and astonish ed the world, and silenced the evil pi edict ions ot both good and bad, has by the aid ot an overuling Providence carried this country, “j'dst tempest aud storm, into clear sunlight, the same girted talent, hi the hands of Picv ^nee, wij work out the problem when by equilibrium will be restored to the financial Merest* and depaituientsot this Country. The ' , "r'Rulates interest ami prohibits usu i", in two States. It would of the i nnsider that tlK! moral element where ,"> JdUre was '"wer in those States wnete fiuv1 Ce,lt-18 leSal than in Maine, wneie only six per cent, is legalized The tact simply declares, that the legislation oi those States is more liberal, and wS may lahly draw Uic inlereuce that U,e people may one day look at money simply as merchandise worth what it will bring in the market and no more The idea is fast gaming ground, ai d the daily quotations of the rise of geld show that it is treated and considered as mercuunulse. The whole system ol brokerage and exchange in the gold market is based on tnat iin-a. 1 have not the means of knowing what the rate ol interest is at the present time in ad the States; I know that progress is the order of the day. In Michigan, in 1804, seven per cent, was the legal interest, aud ten per ecut. was charged in special contracts. In Wiscon sin, seven per cent, and twelve per cent, in special contracts. In (JaJiiorDia, ten per cent, and there is no penalty lor taking usury. In Iowa, teu per cent, is allowed hy spec ial con tract. In Illinois six per cent.—banks seven per cent.—and hy special contract ton per cout. In New York the legal rate is stvrn per cent. 11 New Jersey it is six percent., ex cept Hoboken and Jersey City. These cities beioug to New Jersey, slid the people of those places are specially allowed by the Legislature ot that State to loan and borrow money at seven per cent—contrary to the general law of the State. This action hilly sustains the principle, which was promulgated and sus tained by a majority of the Senate, in the re cent \\ eslbruolt scuool district case, that the law of necessity has given certain communi ties a right which may not he universal in its operation. r am not sure but what it would be better to let the whole matter of interest regulate itself and become one of agreement between the parties thus contracting, fixing a rate of 0 per cent, when no rate is introduced. I can see no wrong in the matter. My triend and colleague speaks of the tanners. There is no better business in the couutry titan farming. It pays the highest interest. Look at the price of wheat, corn, tobaccu, cotton, wool and every leading ptoduct and staple article oi the com - try. lie says that it fails below six per cent, on the investment. I think otherwise. In tfio town where 1 live, if the inquiry is made “where can 1 hire an amount oi money? ’ you are asked have you called on such a ittrmer, or such a tanner I might mention names, r be tanners in the aggregate let more money than any other class oi persons. The mechauics louow them closely. Look at the largo amount ol deposits in our havings Banks. Lo to our villages and cities and as* our wealthy men from wnom they obtain money at six per cent, or at a lower rate lor better investments, and they will answer the tanners and mecnan ies. Break down the legal barriers aud pro claim to such that money is worth just wnat it will bring in the maiKet and they then will have an interest that nghtiuily belongs to them. It is tor this class tuat we are legislat ing. On a review of toe whole subject, taking into consideration the prejudice and tears that seem to exist against usurious contracts, per haps some legai limit should be made; ami if there is any limit it seems to me tnat the idea of my friend aud colleague [Mr. YYooJman] is coirect and has tne least objections, that is, we should adopt the government rate, seven and three-teutus as tue limit. It seems already to govern the commercial and banking interest of me country, it has a national character and history, it is easily and quickly used in casliug interest. 1 think that it will command the general support of the Senate, and will gain limber support in tne other branch, and will nnany become a law. I thereiore move that hi the fourth line the word “eight” be stricken out, and “seven and three-tenths’' be substituted. ■khlGIOVIk —The following order of aervioee on the oc casion of the consecration of Kt.

Rev. James Freeman Clark offered some re marks In the course of which ho said that to arrange and methodize work for members to do was one of '.he objeots for which the Chris tian Church exists. Tho church is a school and Christians are scholars, united to loarn Christianity under the great teacher, Christ, and 1m members should lie taught to learn systematically and unite in doing this work. jaYerj tuurtu suouiu navo us department of Christian work, in which it should provide for all its members, especially the young. The tone and temper of the church would be vast ly improved by such a course. Christiauity was au art as wallas a science; it msaut something to bo done as well as something to be believed. It cannot be explained and taught unless it is practised, and the church should be a school for practise as well as instruction in ideas aud principles. Young people will go to those churches whcro they llud something provided for them to do, as wellas to hear, and and in this they show their wisdom, for they have good authority for preferring a church which talks about tlogma but practices good ness to that which professes to believe in good works but never does them. —Bishop Williams has ordered a monu ment to the memory of Benedict Joseph Fen wick, late Bishop of Boston, and founder of Holy Cross College in Worcester' The monu to bo erected at the grave of the Bishop, in the College grounds.
