The Pottstown Ledger remarks that it has heard of an East Coventry township Damsel who was aroused from her slumbers earlier than usual to milk the cows on the place and when becoming thoroughly awakened found she had stripped one cow but had no milk. The bucket she supposed the engineers of the entire continent reported As going out in ten Days. Ever since the inauguration of the late strike of freight train men there has been an unsettled state of feeling in regard to the locomotive engineers. The cause of this has always taken the shape of a reported impending strike. Of these reports and the probability of their truth the Pittsburgh Leader says a reports have been Rife in the past few Days in regard to the imminence of another strike on the railroads throughout the country. It was asserted that the train men succumb Elto the military Force of the government which of course they would always do As they Are Law abiding citizens and feel the importance of vindicating the Law in every instance of infringement As the Only safeguard of our glorious Republican institutions in the late strike but As soon As the military shall be withdrawn from this and other cities another strike will be inaugurated All Over the country thoroughly organized which the recent one was not and prepared to stay out one or two months if necessary. On inquiry among Railroad official nothing could be Learned in regard to it. The officials hooted the idea so information was sought elsewhere although the officials admitted they had heard something about such rumours but regarded them As Mere nonsense. A nothing definite could be Learned about the matter As All the trainmen and engineers Are uncommunicative on the question of strikes. However the following was Learned from a source which in Ordinary times would be considered reliable announcement. Or.

Mediately took Steps to secure till horse Chicago. Angust 8.-0ffici�l information Aud Thi. Id8tallmeut of Money has been but for the truth of which we cannot in the present excited state of the country vouch. The Story is that the brotherhood of locomotive engineers have reorganized themselves More closely than Ever before and have been holding meetings during the past week throughout the entire country with the View of inaugurating a Gigantic strike Over the whole continent in about two weeks. They have made All necessary provisions for Bolding out six weeks and if necessary two months. The support of the trainmen is confidently counted on and the calculation is to conduct everything in an orderly peaceful manner rendering it unnecessary for the governor to Call out troops. It is firmly believed by them that such a strike must eventually be successful As All the Best engineers in the United states and Canadas will be out and even it a Small number comparatively of engineers now out of employment Are secured to run passenger and some few freight to Ains they will be a a crewed by Green hands Render ing accidents liable so that the proposed strikers feel confident the people will interfere or perhaps the general government itself and re Instate the tile engineers and trainmen and possibly bring about an entire re organization of Ute Railroad system of the country. A we learn from a gentleman doing a Large manufacturing business Bere that a Eastern correspondent of the Boule used the report in a letter received a Day or two since by the gentleman in this City stating that they had positive information that such a strike was contemplated.
