TilE~iPKESS. THURSDAY MOSXIKG, APR. 3, 1873, 8T£BY regular attache of the Press in furnished with a card certificate countersigned by Stanley T. Pullen, Editor. All railway, steamboat and liote managers will confer a favor upon us by demanding credentials of everv person claiming to represent our Jour.lal, as we have information that several “bum mers” are seeking courtesies iu the name of the Press, and we have no disposition to be, even pas s vely, a party to such fraud. W k do not read anonymous letters and communi cations. The name and address of the writer are in all esses indispo ab e, not necessarily for publication but as a guaranty of good faith. W .* cannot, undertake to return or j re erve com munications that are not use i. The Railroad Problem. The problem ot cheaper transportation be tween the West and East presses for solution. We of the East can hardly appreciate the galling burden, so great as to he almost pro hibitory, which the present system ol freight carriage by rail imposes upon the Western pioducer, who is taxed from fifty to seventy five per cent, of his gross productions lor conveyance to market. Of every lour bushels of coru or wheat that he ra’ses thJ carriers take between two and three lor conveying the othei bushel and a fraction to the point of consumption. We can comprehend how in a business transaction one might sell at a loss, but that a staple article, which the whoe world wants, should be destroyed on account of commercial impediments between sc ci and would be buyer is shocking; and yet, in Iowa and Minnesota, farmers arc using their grain for fuel and thousands of bushels are lett to rot in the fields because it will not pay . .t_ IU gctnuv* ' The large tolls exacted by the railwty com panies is not the only infamous feature of their management. This alone would be suf ficiently oppressive but to this is added a sys tematic variation of their rates to take advan tage of the i ecessi ties ot both producers and consumers. Freights are changed even from month to month and for one half the year are from one third to one half larger than for the other half. During the season of water trans portation the railways will carry a bushel of com from Chicago to New York for twenty five cents, and charge thirty-six cents for the same service in winter, while the expense to the roads, on the great central lines cer tainlv, is not essentially greater in winter than in summer. 'iue companies of course allege that they carry at as low rates as can be fairly afforded and point to the- moderate dividends to stock holders as proof of the soundness of their po sition. But the people are slow to take the dividend book as a fair test of profits when they know that.dividends are declared, not on the cost of the roads, but on stock watered to many times its original dimensions, when they see parasite transportation companies running cars over the roads by contract and making enormous profits, when they see Commodore Vanderbilt heaping up a mass of wealth estimated at between sixty and on# hundred millions of dollars, when they see C. J. Brydges accumulating a modest compe tence of twenty-five millions and upwards, when they see great blocks of money dispens ed with princely prodigality in purchasing legislative and judicial sanction for the op pressions, when they see every railroad man high and low acquiring fabulous wealth aud when to gain control of a railroad between the West and East is a surer ptssport to opu lence than Midas’ touch orEortunatus’ purse. All this must stop somewhere. It is yearly and daily becoming more unendurable. These corporations are creatures of the people and the people, in self defense, must restrain them within reasonable limits. Whether they shall pass from private to public control as the turnpikes were transformed into high ways is a very grave question. The objections to it are many and serious. The control of bo vast property interests by government would be provocative of corruption aud mal feasance and the presence of so great powers in politics would be dangerous; bnt there arc infinite corruptions and malfeasances now and the concentration of power in the hands of these great corporations is now dangerous. A better way perhaps, if feasible, would be for the national Congress to assume the pow er of regulating tariff's under their constitu tional power “to regulate commerce among the several States.’’ At all events something must be done aud it is well for our people to be awake to the difficulty aud to appreciate the necessity for an immediate and radical remedy. We of the East should thoroughly compre hend that our Western fellow citizens are not the chief sufferers prospectively from a contin uance of this system. They will not long con tinue to send breadstuff's to feed our opera tives, taking in returu the products of our libor. They will be forced by inevitable bu iness laws to become manufacturers and to make markets for themselves nearer the source of supplies. The vast coal deposits of the middle western States and the water power of the northwestern States are favor able for the purpose and will not long remain Unused under this stringent pressure. Opei - ations are already in progress to force a direct water passage to Europe from Chicago via the lakes,the St. Lawrence and the necessary canals. Already lines of steamers are run ning from Europe to New Orleans and schemes are actively on foot to effect direct communication in sea-going vessels from the upper Mississippi down through the Gulf to the Atlantic. Thus in the absenc; of remedy for existing restrictions on commerce between West and East, NewEnglandhast e cheering prospect of losing her western markets for the products of her mills and her commercial p ofits resulting from the exchange of West ern for foreign products at her ports. The investigation of the Committee of tlie New York Assembly into the operations oi Erie Railroad in connection with legislation, develops a startling amount of corruption. Antes, who was Fisk’s private secretary testi fied that Boss Tweed during the year 1871 re ceived of the Erie managers over $440,000 for “legal services” which sums do not ap pear on the books of the company. As to the character of Tweed’s legal services there cm be but one opinion and that it was all U ed to purchase legislation. A mutilated b-ok of the company shows that during the session of the legislature of 1868, Jim Fisk. Daniel Drew—(good Daniel) Jay Gould, Pe — t;r B. Sweeney,Heury Thompson and others, drew sums amounting in the aggregate to $1,000,000 tor “legal services.” Tweed was paid $19,000 in 1870 lor the Rochester Dem ocratic Convention. Six senators received $ 0,000 f >r defeating the pro rata freight bid & 1870, but their names have not yet be< n g .en. In this connection it can be sei n W lerc a large part of the money goes that such railioads earn and why the stockholders get but moderate dividends. AT a recent dinner party in Charleston, S. C., Judge Clifford of Massachusetts, under the influence of sumptuous food and rare wine gave the history of the causes that led to the stopping of all proceedings against Jefferson Davis tor the crime of treason. As Judge Clifford is reported, the most eminent lawyers of the North were called together in Wash ington in 1866 to consultation in reference to the case of Jeff Davis, and that this array ot legal talent held that the constitution, the law of nations or the decisions of the Supreme Court in the case of Aaron Burr failed to give precedent or authority for the punishment ot Davis, and, on their recommendation, the case was abandoned by the government. The conclusion, in brief, was that the laws of the United States had not been so constructed as to afford any certainty of punishment for high treason or rebellion, and that, if arrai t, ed, Davis could not have been convicted. A Washington despatch says that the fact that Commissioner Douglass will be obliged by law to discharge upward of four teen hundred assessors and assistant assesso-s of the internal revenue, is causing a deal of piteous begging at the national capital. But he law is imperative as their vocation is gene. The Atlantic Calamity. The despatches of the appalling catastrophe hear Halifax, give the particulars of that event so fully that comment is unnecessary. Since the loss of the British frigates St, George and Defense, in 1811, there has been no calamity at sea of near its magnitude. In compatatively recent times the following are the most notable losses ol life by similar causes: The Royal Charter in 1859 was wrecked on the Angles® coast, with 440 lives; by the wreck of the Pomona the same year, 395 men were drowned; by the burning of the Austria in mid ocean, 461 persons were lost; 480 lives were lost on the City of Glas gow which disappeared in 1854 ; 300 were lost by the Arctic off Newfoundland the same year; 220 were lost on the Hungarian in t e same place in I860, and 325 lives "‘ie 0 by the wreck of tlie Northfleet last a" in the English channel. Thus t • PP that the loss of life ou the Atlanta ts the largest lor more than had a century. The Cdmmi^ioneroFthe Internal Reve nue is having a hard time in collecting tile tax of the New York Central Railroad by selling its locomotives, which no one will purchase except the agents of the road, who purchased the last lot sold for 81000 each. I It is said that the Collector will hereafter prevent the use of the engines that he sells after they arc attached. The law prevents the government from levying on the real es tate of the company until its personal prop erty is exhausted. The Treasury Depart ment and President Grant are firm in then determination to collect the tax and in time will secure the whole amount. The last monthly report of the Bureau of Statistics shows that for ten months of 1872 ending October 31st, our imports exceed our domestic and foreign exports in the sum of 5128,278,787. This is not a very cheerful presentation to those who may reflect upon it; and in view of the fact that for the corres ponding period of 1871, t_e excess of imports over exports was but $46,742,952, it becomes less so. Indeed, the rate at which we are in creasing the balance of trade against us is somewhat alaimiug. A “panicky” rumor is going the rounds that His A:cidency, Andy Johnson, now re ported to be loafing about the groceries of a remote Tennessee village, contemplates mak ing a fight to succeed Parson Brownlow in the United States Senate in 1875. It is a source of relief to remember in this connec tion, that in so long a period as will transpire before the election, Old Time can subdue the toughest oi'three-score-and-ten years old pol iticians. One of the heavy items which went to in crease the public debt for the current month was §1,324,000 drawn by the disburs ing ofli cess of the House and Senate, on account of the additional compensation of Congressmen. But for this unusual draft, the decrease of the debt f >r the month would have been within a small fraction of three millions. The final official vote elects two Republi can Congressmen in New Hampshire, viz: Small in the first district by 343, and Pike in the second by 19. In the third,Parker,Dem., has 310. A gain of two members of Con gress is not bad in an election where R»pub licans were supposed to have been badly beaten. _ The White Star Line. The Boston Advertiser gives the following interesting facts relative to the White Star Line and the ill fated steamship Atlantic: The White Star Line is mostly owned by the great shipping house of Ismay, Imrie & Co., and very little, if any, of the stock is held in this country. In naming the steamers of the line the nomenclature of the once famous Col lins line was adopted, and it has often been remarked as strange that names of such ill onieu as those of the unfortunate Colima steamers, whose history is fraught with disas ter, should have been adopted by the company. But the name of the Arctic, the tsrrible tale of whow loss twenty years ago is still well re membered, is omitted from the list of the White Otar names. The names of the White Star steamers are Oceanic, Republic, Adriatic, Cel tic, Britanic, Baltic and Germanic. It is stat ed that disaster has befallen vessels bearing nearly every one of those names. But, per haps, in naming the boats the proverb that lightning never strikes twice in the same place was adopted. The line has been runuing but little over a year. It at once became the favor ite line of European travellers on account of the unrivalled magnificence of their accommo dations. The steamers are comp .red to great floating hotels, and are all so nearly alike that a description of one would answer for all. The steamers are between 420 and 450 feet long and very low and narrow, giviog the appearance of a size much greater than they really are. They are advertised as of six thousand tons, but this is an exaggeration of nearly ond hundred per cent., the steamers being hut little more than half that size, most of them less than four thousand tons. The steamers each have four masts, and are the fastest that cross the Atlantic. The Adri atic last May made the fastest trip ever known, he time from Queer stown to New York hav ing been seven days, sixteen hours and fifty-five onuutes. The average passage of the steamers is nine days. Indeed about everything seemed to he sacrificed to speed and elegance, and there has been in many a distrust of the seaworthi ness of the steamers. Of late there had beeu several communications iu the New York pa pers on the subject, complaining that on the boats of the line too great attention was paid to show and style and too little to appliauces for safety. Whether this disaster will show These complaints to he well-founded remains to bo seen. Tue lost Atlantic was an iron ship, and was built at Belfast, Ireland, in 1871. She had a capacity of 3723 tnus, and her draft was 22 feet. The length of the boat was 420 feet, the breadth 40 feet and nine inches, and the depth 23 feet. She carried four masts, and had six bulkheads. 'I'V.A Aflant.o vr-no n onnntavnavt rvl tlvsi ,.4l boatsof the White Star line, and every advan tage of speed, comfort and safety was claimed for her as for all of them. The saloou accom modations were of modern arrangement*—the space amidships being allotted to the first-class cabin. The state-rooms were on the main deck. The grand saloon had no sleeping berths, as is the case on most ocean steamers, but exteuded from side to side and formed an apartment measuring 70 by 41 feet. There was also a ia lies’ saloon, a library, a smoking-room, bath-rooms, a barber’s shop, and a promenade of 150 feet for the ex clusive use of saloon passengers. The steerage was located on the same deck as the grand sa loon. forward and aft, and was lighted by a "imnlete line of portholes and deck lights. By ascending a stairway—which was a regular •aioon stairway and not the customary stair way—the steerage passengers were allowed a promenade of sixty feet on the upper deck. Every part of the boat occupied Iv passengers >r crew was heated by steam. Altogether the boat was considered a splendid sp cimen of naval architecture, and tile style in which the saloons were fitted uo was really elegant and uxurious. The general plan of construction ind tlie arrangements for the comfort of steer age passengers received high approval from the British emigration commissioners. The an nouncements of the company claim the follow ing advantages for the boats of this line: Im mense strength in construction, size and pow er; height between decks, and perfect ventila tion; passengers carried on upper decks only; separate accommodations for married couples, tor single women, and for single men; separ ate washing-ranges and closets for males and females; “passenger decks" having “side lights” of extra size; ample space for exercise, and absence, of crowding; snperiorand nnlimit ■d supply of food, well cooked; constant sup ply of drinking-water on passenger decks; ‘through rates” from any point in Europe to inv part of America; quick passage, and low '' vortainty of securing a new and fast steamer.

In the Ohio House of Representatives Tues day the bill to abolish capital puuishinent was defeated—only 29 votes in its favor. There was a marked advance in butter at St. Albans on Tnesday, and prices rauged from 35 to 45 cents. Charles M. Barras, author of “The Black Crook,” who was injured by jumping from a railroad train near Stamford on Sunday died on Monday. Two more Congressmen have refused their allotment of back pay furnished them by the salary bill, P. Van Trump of Ohio and C. W. Willard of Vermont. Mrs. Myra Clarke Gaines has won another victory in tho coU' ts over the city of New Or leans. The indomitable energy of this woman certainly deserves success. An unnatural father named John Lawler, fromNewtouville, Mass., deserted his little sou six years old, in Boston Tuesday, and he wa ■ taken to Chardon Street Home. The annual report of the Illinois Central Railroad shows that the net earnings for 1872 amounted to 32,103,106, or $629,741 less than the net earnings for 1871. Hans Andersen, the famous Danish author, still continues seriously ill. It is hoped that a trip to Italy, on which he means to start in the course of April, accompanied by the poet Boegh, will assist his recovery. The St. Louis city election passed off quietly Tuesday. A heavy vote was polled. The re turns indicate the election of Joseph Brown (Dt.n.) over George Barr (Rep.) by 2500 major! Instructions to postmasters to collect postage on weekly newspapers mailed to points within the county where they are published, and also on newspaper exchanges, on and after July next, will shortly bo issued by the Postmaster General. The Catholic Total Abstinence Union of tho United States numbers 152 societies, with about 20,000 members, and there are 200 societies not connected with the Union. It is proposed to unite with the societies in Ireland and form an international league. Some of the papers are publishing as fresh news, the terrible story of the butchery of a French family at Victoria, N. B., which went the rounds of tho press some months ago. It constitutes a very good stock sensation. Archbishop Purcell of Cincinnati has laid down a rule especially aimed at trades unions, that no Roman Catholic can unite with any as sociation requiring an oath as a condition of membership, and the sacrament of communion is refused throughout his diocese to Crispins and all such. The dead body of an unknown man, found in the woods at Greenville, R. I.. was removed on Tuesday to an undertaker’s office, where a cor oner’s jury at.d three doctors were summoned to investigate the cause of death. On removing the clothing it was found that the man died from small pox, and the consternation of the jury, the doctors, witnesses and officials may be better imagined than described. STATE NEWS.

The Pioneer goes for the Sunrise for advertis ing “Plantation Bitters.” Next week Uncle Stickney will make the short fur fly. KENNEBEC COUNTY. Some young rascals in Winthrop have been brought to confront a trial justice for defacing the uew school building. The Journal says that there have been only eight verdicts in civil causes,—rather a poor show for twenty-four days of term time; but it is to be considered that several actions, after being partly tried, were withdrawn from the jury, and that the longest trial resulted in a disagreemeut of the jury. The highest num ber reached on the docket was 459. There have been sixteen decrees of divorce granted, nearly all on the petition of wives and the causes al leged are for the most part drunkenness, abus ive treatment, neglect to support and deser tion. OXFORD COUNTY. The Democrat says that Bethel farmers are congratulating themselves that the great body of snow will probably be followed by large crops of grass and fruit.

The Machias Union don’t count much on its hold on the friendship of Maine Congressmen, when it closes an acknowledgment of public documents with the statement that after July 1st it will see no more of them. The Machias Uuion reports five or six cases of small pox at Kennebec, two miles from that town, and three or four in a Saddler family in that village. Mr. Albee died at the former place and a young child at the iatter. It was of Boston origin, being imported early in the winter and called measles. An Eastport despatch says that the schooner Win. Penn of Gloucester, left there Tuesday on a fishing cruise. The crew were pretty drunk. One man jumped overboard, but was picked up by a dory from the vessel, assisted by a boat from the reveuue cutter Mosswood. Be fore the vessel got out of the harbor she was found to be on fire in the cabin. She was brought into the harbor again and the fire ex tinguished. The Thoughtful Phje.ciun Docs not regard spring as a healthy season. Its sud deu transition of temperature, searching winds and chilling rains are provocative of rheumatism and neuralgia, and where there is a predisposition to dys pepsin or bilious colic, or cliillB and fever, such varia tions of the weather are apt to superinduce a visita tion of one or other of those complaints. By toning and regulating the system with Hostetter’s Stomach Bitter* at this season, these evils may, however, be warded off. The direct ettect of the Standard Vege table Speciftc is to invigorate the body and renovate the constitution, while it indirectly operates as a pre ventive of disease by purifying the animal Bui. is from any acid particles they may contain, and regu lating the functions upon which heallh mainly de pends—notably those of digestion, secretion and evac uation.
