Porllnud and ihr West. Ou\ coi respondent whose letter favoring the Saco river railroad was published yestei^ day, has fallen into one error which should he corrected. He makes the distauee trom san bornton ou the Boston, Coucord and Mon treal railroad, or Franklin on the Northern New Hampshire, to Boston only 78 miles, and the distance from the same points to Portland, by the proposed Alton Bay and Rochester route, 87 miles. The actual distauee from Portland is 80 miles to Satfbom and 81 miles to Franklin; from Boston by the shortest route via Lawrence, 90 miles to Sanbomton and 91 miles to Franklin. The dillerence in distance is in favor of Portland. If with that slight advantage we can ofler as good terms as Boston, we can count on the trade of Northern New Hampshire and Vermont; if Boston can underbid us we shall not deserve it. That part of the argument against the Rochester route as compared with the tjac« Valley route must therefore be abandoned. While we cannot alibi'd to neglect the trade of Vermont or New Hampshire, that is not the only or the most important interest which Portland has in improving her railway con nections to the westward. We need coropet iug routes with the Grand Trunk, and the more the better. We can furnish and we ought to lumish an outlet at this point for the produce of the Western States. It is for this reason that the connection with Ogdens burg through Montpelier is especially desira ble. Admitting that the Saco Valley route will bring us within 144 miles of Moutpelier, there will be as our correspondent says over 100 miles to build. By the Rochester joute 44 miles of new road will give us a connec tion with Ogdensburg, which will bring that port 10 miles nearer to Portland than to New York,and nearly 50 miles newer than Bulla lo is to New York. Oswego indeed is about 50 miles nearer to New York than Portland will be to Ogdensburg, but it must be remem bered that Portland is 225 miles nearer Eu rope than New York. A satisfactory through route improving all the advantages of water transportation can be secured therefore with least expense and least delay—a very impor tant consideration—by the Rochester route. This connection is only available while the Lakes are open. If we had only the Saco Valley road to depend upon, we should have no through route in winter. If one looks at the line of the New York Central road how ever, he will observe that it bends downward this side of Rome to Albany and Boston. The main line ot the road, if prolonged, would reach the seacoast near Portsmouth. But by building the 20 miles trom Alton Bay to Frank lin we open a route to White River Junction, where we shall be met beyond a doubt by the Rutland and Woodstock road, which puts us in direct communication through the New York Central with the West, in summer and winter. Allowing that the Moutpelier and Wells river road is built, we shall enjoy then through the Rochester road the advantages of two routes to Montpelier and three to the West, competing with each other and in part with the Erie canal, and one of them employ ing water transportation as far as it can be be made available. If the Saco Valley route depended solely upon its relative advantages as compared to the Rochester road, its prospects would not be so good as we hope and believe they are. It can afford to stand on its own merits. A recounoissauce tor this road was made, as many of our citizens remember, in 1840, by Mr. William II. Noble. Sir. Noble reported tlie distance from Hollis or Buxton on the Saeo to Fryeburg about 36 miles, and found no grade of more than 40 feet to tlie mile and no curve of less than 1500 feet radius. Mate rials for superstructure and masonry are abun dant on the line. Some rock and clay are found, but the greater part of the road would run over sand and gravel plains needing no surfacing. But little bridging would be nec esary. There can be no reasonable doubt that a road may easily and cheaply be built in this direction and that the local business of such a road would justify its construction.— Seventeen years ago it was believed that the population and business ol that region would make the road a paying institution. How much stronger are the same arguments now. If it should appear to be the first duty of Portland to assist iu the completion of the Rochester railroad, we have very little doubt that the Saco Valley enterprise will occupy the next place in order. 1*resident of the Industrial College. The Board of Trustees of the Maine Indus trial College have unanimously elected Mr. Phinbhas Baknes of Portland as its Presi dent. The appointment, we think, is one em inently ‘‘fit to be made." As a gentleman of high mental culture, and of original and inde pendent thought, the interesting and respon sible duty of organizing this novel establish ment lias devolved upon one who has from the first taken a deep interest in the subject, and given an earnest attention to its demands The articles from bis pen, which have appear ed in the Maine Farmer, give evidence that he will enter upon the task before him with great ability and zeal. How far he may bn able to actualize all his ideas, therein express ed, is yet to.be seen. If. by drawing the nice line of distinction between the students’ earn ing their tiring on the College Farm, and sup porting themselves by their work, upon it, he can avoid the mistake whereby the Labor De partments of Waterville College, the Maine Wesleyan Seminary, and other institutions have proved a failure, he will do well, and dis appoint many who doubt the feasibility of self-sustaining schools. We kiow not the ex tent ol the new President’s practical knowl edge of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts; but he certainly is a clear and sound tlieoriz er; and as a Teacher of the various sciences required in the College, we do know that lie can have few superiors. For some years he was a Professor iu Waterville College; he is. there lore, familiar with college requirements and college discipline. We hope and believe .he will not be embarrassed in his new duties by any officious intenueddling of the Board which has shown so much good sense in selecting Him. Almsgiving. On but few subjects of pract ical morality do beads of families need to cultivate and exer cise a sounder discretion,than in responding to the calls lor charity wliieh arc made by strang ers who enter their doors soliciting alms. The realty needy and deserving should by no means be turned empty away; but our houses aud business places are so frequently beset by mendicants, many of whom are in fact deceiv ers, that families, if they obey the dictates of their benevolence, are oftentimes in danger of doing more barm than good. Misapplied charity is an injury both to the donor and to the recipient. It takes from the first what might be more usefully expenued, aud ope rates upon Ihe latter as a reward to idleness and vice. It is quite impossible, at first sight, to dis tinguish betweeu the really deserving and the unworthy, lint as a general -ule it Is safe policy to offer the bestowal of aid in the shape of reward for service. Ascertain if the appli cant is able to work, and refer him to some place, if you have it not yourself, where he can obtain temporary or pennanent employment. If he seems reluctant on this, it is a fair sus picion that he is no better than he should be. If he is willing to perform a convenient ser vice in your behalf, the presumption is that he i is honest in his story, and you may help him j with little lisk. i Employment is often the best form of char- , ity. It saves applicants for the time being from idleness and the vices which generally i follow in its train, and conduces to the health both of their bodies and their minds. The 1 service, too, amounts to something like a re- i ward for the benefits bestowed; so that both i parties are made better by the arrangement, | In this country, where honest labor seldom T8 °‘ eneT^/ment,it is suspicious when I strangers apply for street charity. \\> would not he severe; we had rather err on the side 1 of chanty than of unkindness; still, so liable 1 are people to be imposed upon, that in gener- ' al, the best way to prevent mendicity is°to re fuse gifts till the applicants have a chance to earn them by their service. There is no read ier test of merit than this. An excellent system is practiced in London i to prevent street begging. There are offices, like little banks, in varions parts of the city, which issue small scrip, representing values in shillings, pence, <fce., which are redeemable for the purposes of their issue. II you would be protected agaiust deception, just step into one of those offices, and purchase any amount of this scrip which you please. If, alterwaids, a beggar accosts you tor alms, give him some of this scrip. This, if he is honest, he will take to the office for redemption. There arrived, h.s easa is investigated, and if found worthy thc scrip is ledecmed in money, or he is set at Work somewhere. If not worthy, either lie will not dare present the scrip, or, if he does, he will he taken in custody by uu officer, and punished tor his fraud. I.otter from the Nnlionul Cupitnl. [COMtESPONPENCE OP THE I'BESS. J Washington, Feb. 4, ltW. IMPORTANT CURRENCY RESOLUTION. The House has been engaged in an exciting series ot votes in relation to a resolution of instruction to the Committee of Ways and Means in relation to the conti action of the currency. Mr. Wee of Iowa commenced the tight by a resolution instructing the Commit tee to bring in a bill restricting the contrac tion to the amount hitherto authorized,—four millions per month. This was voted down by a considerable majority. Mr. Grinncll of the same State introduced another resolution pre pared by Mr. Lawrence of Ohio, which in stincts the committee to bring in a bill for bidding the reduction dmiugthe present year ot the U. S. notes commonly known as “green backs.” This resolution was finally adopted by some twelve or fifteen majority. The ef fect ot this is easily seen. Whatever reduc tion of the currency Is now made will have to bo in compound interest notes, and not in those bearing no interest. Of the former it is charged that Mr. McCulloch has redeemed comparatively few. They are nearly all in the hands ofbankers and this may account tor the action of the Secretary. The effect of this vote, in defining the policy of Congress will be considerable. Your representative, Mr. Lynch introduced two importaut measures on the same subject, which were properly referred. One of the hills provides that' after the 1st of July, all Treasury notes received at the Treasury shall be destroyed, new notes being issued, bearing no Interest, and payable in coin on de mand after one year. The new notes thus is sued are not to exceed the amount of those now in circulation. They are to be legal tender, except lor payment of interest on the public debt. Tbe Treasury is also authorized to issue similar notes in payment of such por tions of the national debt as may fall due and become payable before a certain day in 1808. The Secretary is authorized to pur chase coin to redeem these notes when their payment is demanded. NOT APPOINTED. 1 learn that Col. James Maun, reported to have been appointed Special Treasury Agent, has not yet been so appointed, lntdrmation has been given to the Secretary which shows him to be an improper person tor the appoint ment. It has been‘‘bung up” lor timber con sideration. A BOOK OiT THE BECBET SEKVICE— HOW IT 'VAS SUPPRESSED. The Judiciary Committee hare liaj sum moned here, as witnesses on the charge pre sei.tclby Representative Ashley against the President, Gen. Lafayette C. Baker, and the Rev. Mr. Headley, well known as a book maker and author. Baker was Chief cf the Secret Service during the war. He has been residing at Lansing, Michigan, hat for some time past has been travelling, as is believed, to keep out of the way ol such a process. The public reputation of Baker is too well knowu to be more than alluded to. It is supposed that he is iu possession of intorma tion of a damaging character against Mr. Johnson. Time will develope this. Mr. Headley is sent for to testily with relation to a work on the secret service which he has been editing for Gen. Baker. “Thereby hangs a tale,” which I propose to narrate as told to me. Some time last Sum mer it was, reported that Baker was about to publish his memoirs, and had made arrange ments with a New York publisher to that end. A few days afterwards another para graph started on its rounds, hinting that said book had been iu some way suppressed. Of course there was nothing known as to the truth of this. It now appears that the Rev. Mr. Headley prepared for Baker a volume ot the foregoing character. The matter pro ceeded far enough for the work to get into type. By some unexplained means the proof sheets ot the book were placed in the hands of Wm. H. Seward. They were of course read, and with what interest may be judged ' by the fact (so stated) that the Secretary struck out 17(i pages, and sent the remainder hack. What means were brought to bear is uot known, but immediately alter the type was distributed, and the publishers refused to go further with the work. Mr. Headley is directed to bring with him aU papers and data furnished him by Baker. The publishers are also to be summoned. It will be remembered that Mr. Scovil of New Jersey was charged, at the time of an election for Senator in place of Stockton, with having made a bargain with the Presi dent to prevent an election, he, Scovil, then holding the balancing vole in the Slate Sen ate. Mr. Scovil is to be summoned to give bis testimony on this subject, it is believed he will do so willingly. The object will be to prove that Mr. Johnson sought to make a cor rupt bargain, by use of the executive patron age in New Jersey. As soon as tlic Colorado Veto is disposed of, the Senators elect will be summoned be fore the .Judiciary Committee, to testify to the propositious reported as made by the President to them, at the time of the first ve to of the bill admitting Colorado as a State. The propositions were to the effect that it the delegation elect would sustain the policy of the Kxecutivc, he would sign the bill of ad mission. The Cabinet are reported to be a unit in opposit!on to impeachment, Mr. Stanton be ing claimed as especially antagonistic and frank in the expression of his feeling. THE NAVAL ACADEMY. Maryland cursea at loyalty are like chickens coming home to roost. This morn ing Gen. Schenck introduced a resolution di recting the Naval Committee to report as to the expediency of removing the Naval Acad emy from Annapolis to some locality where loyalty ruled, and the social influences al>out the cadets would not bo likely to warp them from right sentiments. The resolution pass ed by a very' decided majority, alter having elicited several strong expressions in relation to the course ot ft flairs in Maryland. The rebel reactionaries there seem to have awakened at last to a realization of the abyss to which they are driving so rapidly. On Saturday the Senate had a motion before it to reconsider the vote by which the hill was passed ordering a special election tor munici pal authorities in Baltimore at an early day. The motion for reconsideration was made by Mr. Earle, the reactionary leader. This indi cates a retroceding from the illegal positiou now assumed. 1 am assured that if an at tempt be made to hold such election it will be the signal for terrible resistance and violence. The effect ot the reaction on the business of Baltimore is very bad. Business men assure me property has depreciated 25 per cent.— This state of affairs bears hardest upon loyal busiuess men, who are least able, as a rule, to bear a pressure of this kind.

Ail ('iinoiii-ril Revolution. The Lomlim, Telegraph saja that the Isle of Man, which is only thirty miles long and nine wide, and contains about lilty tbou-and inhab itants, lias just beeu the scene of a revolution quite as remarkable lor its effective character as lor the bloodless and quiet mauner in which it has been brought about. The government of the island is vested in two bodies. The upper house is called the Council, and consists of the two Doonisters, or judges, the Clerk of the liolis, the Attorney General, the Vicar-General, the Water Bailiff', and the Bishop and Archdeacon of the dio cese. This Council is presided over by the Lieutenant-Governor ol the Is.and. The low er house is quaintly designated the House of Keys. This body is so ancient that it is now impossible to assign a date to its origin, it consists ot twentnjour members and a speak er. Its most curious feature is the tact that it has been, until the last j ear, a close corpora tion, tilling all vacancies by a vote of tbe House. This anomalous government, exist ing under the British crown, and within six hours’ sail ol Liverpool, had ot iate ycus be come very distasteful to the islanders, and le peated efforts had been, made by local reform ers to bring about a reform. These, however, were unavailing, and the Manxmen owe their present enjoyment of the franchise to an Ill advised act of the House ol Keys itself. That august body took offence at some criticisms it a local newspaper, and sentenced the unfortu nate journalist, without any trial, to six months’ Imprisonment in the old Daulsh fort, known as Castle Kuslien. This matter was taken up by the Engli-h press, and the journ alist was released, after something more than a month's in prisonment, by a writ of hubeai corpus from the Queen's Bench. Tbe Lieutenant-Governor, who had long desired to bring about a retonn, promptly availed himself of this opportunity. He in troduced, some months ago, into the insular legislature a bill the object of which was to enact a complete change in the constitution of the house by importing the elective franchise into the island. The Keys and tneir tew friends stood aghast at this sweeping measure; but, notwithstanding their determined opposition, the bill bas passed through its various stages, and has now become the law of the Island, having been formerly promulgated. Tins promulgation must be a curious ceremony. All tbe constituted authorities assemble for divine service in the Church of St. John the Baptist, in the centre of the island, and at tbe termination of the service they form into pro cession, and march to a very ancient artificial mound called Tynwaldhill, said to have been constructed hundreds of years ago by the Scandinavians. From the top of this meund the act is read in the English and Manx lan guages, and then it becomes law, VARIETIES. —A Jenkins speaks of “-who is Just emerging into womanhood in white, trimmed with blue." —A Boston paper says; “A remarkable dis covery is reported in Italy, by which two per sons may converse by telegraph, recognizing even the sonnds of each other's voice.
