In fact we arc old that for Tarral Dayi past the train from Here West each Day consisted of four empty a and on its return brought in the same or other four empty ones. What the particular object is for hauling four empty cars Over the Road daily Between Here and Chica go it is difficult to it is to keep tip but we must still Hopo that directors will yet Wake up to a realizing sense of the ruinous policy now being pursued and either compel the present incompetent acting president to retire or else Luau Gale a policy More con House March 80th do a times after i finished my letter to vote of monday and mailed it at Forest nothing of note transpired or rather was seen for Muht came on us at Crest los Afler which the regular train having come up we embarked for this City and were soon stored away in one of those Tine sleeping cars to which Public attention has not As yet been sufficiently directed. 11 was thought these curs would prove but an Experiment but i am quite sure that no greater Aux Cut could have been anticipated by its projector. The Cost president Whoso Prark practice has so militated against the interest of the Road by not main taming Good but by driving it off. A prac tical Man would have done no such thing. I Nav remark that know not How Tom. Has heretofore deported himself on Public but 1 do know that he acted meekly though he May have Felt never so consequential. This is not my Opin Ion alone but that atone Tofino k number 32. Distant with the interests and necessities of the of lodging under the Ciri Road and satisfactory to the Public.

Another advantage which the Road has Tiit year Over that o Tost is that it now runs direct to Chicago on it own rail while last year it stopped ii Plymouth where All the passengers and every Pound o freight had to be transferred into the cars of us from almost every Section of the Union comes the most cheering intelligence concerning our Winter crops scarcely is there an very stale and locality All unite in the in present Prospect indicates one Bundang crops that has gladdened from c1 statement that to of the most Al.

But How rally have Thev been disappointed those Hopes of the stockholders and creditors a litmus and had the interests of the. Road been in competent hands icum have been fully realized.

And should these Winter crops pass on to maturity without injury and the summer crops be equally abundant our country will then enjoy As great a degree of Prosperity As been known for u Long period past. And this Prosperity will be the More readily frit and fully realized by every class throughout the country than in former times for the reason that we Are now just recovering from one of the most severe and distressing financial embarrassments which but few have Ever witnessed.
