From personal residence of the Pacific coast and a desire Lor the expansion Unity said development of our country i feel much concern for the southwestern Traus Conti Gueutal liar Road system so imperatively demanded by Public interests and which will come before Congress this Winter when to save time and insure Success much is required and Little Likely to to accomplished without Unity of and concert of action. Besides these my interest is increased by Tho fact that i am going to our sister Republic Mexico Tho Northern Statc-8 of which bordering our own country will feel locally interested in the route of our Southern transcontinental line by which they Aro to to More or less benefited and with which they will desire connecting lines by which to supplies and machinery for the development of the exhaust less Mineral resources of those Border states. Oil All these accounts i should have been gratified to meet and have a free conference with Tho leading representatives of the principal southwestern lines of projected railroads before leaving and would even Hope to be of Somo use to them before leaving As i expect to on the 10h instant. But thinking they might consider the Liberty of writing to request them to meet me Herd next Friday a presumption i Havo decided instead to submit a few suggestions on the Matteis in question. 1. This is the congressional session when the outgoing wishes to do something gracious and the incoming administration ought to be glad to get rid of the responsibility of appropriations in Aid of our railroads and both ought therefore to favor the required appropriations. 2. The development of the South and West and the construction of a Southern transcontinental Railroad Are so abundantly fraught with Public benefits that if those interested use proper Means and minds to Lay the facts. Before the country through Tho press they can Creato a Public of nion that will Bear their measures through Congress promptly and without extra Effort. But if they act without Unity and each interest underhand edly conflicts with Tho other i am afraid of failure expense Ond mischief. 3. I earnestly suggest that Only three of Tho principal lines say the Kansas Branch at lactic and Pacific Aud Memphis and new Orleans and Fulton or Shreveport ought to ask subsidies to Tho Valley of the Rio Graude. 4. That thence to the Pacific there should be but one grand trunk line Over which All the Westward bound lines irom the Mississippi and Gulf to the Valley of Tho Limo Grande 6hould Havo equal rights to Ruu trains at uniform rates Aud charge. 5. That the rights and subsidies for its construction from the Rio Grande to Tho Colorado amp a would belong to that Ono of these lines which should first reach Tho initial Point to be fixed in the Valley of the Rio Grande and from the Colorado t Westward to the Southern. Chi Pauy or to the Sau Diego Aud Gila City Railroad company. G. That Tho initial Point should he fixed in Tho Valley mho Rio Graude near Elpaso to Causo that will open two Hundred Miles of that great and Fertile Valley accommodate All Tho Westward bound Railroad lines from the Kansas Branch to Tho Rio Grande give an initial Point for a Railroad to Chihuahua and for a Overland Phonco to the Pacific possessing All the advantages set Forth in Tho no e appended to this letter to which i bog to Call Especial attention. 7. To effect tha Best re3nlts, the friends of these Railroad lines should organize appoint special representatives under. Ono general head and a discuss and arrange Tho programme which this head should carry out. This arrangement will give All a Fairchance. Do the most that can to Dono for Tho entire Railroad interest and prevent those otherwise necessary combinations of extreme and stronger interests which in self defence crush minor ones Whilo it would reduce to a minimum. Tho chances of corruption an it i Public demoralization. W. S. Rosec Jakq. Government Hale of cold. Special to Tho i. O. Picayune. New York nov. 23--it is ascertained that Tho government will soil Ond thus throw upon the Market ten millions in Gold. Tho report of the Secretary of our it is understood does not Call for any appropriation for the payment of bounties. Antelope.

Tho Best Reading is what we get out of each others faces. What volume so interesting As a lady a pretty Laco and who does no to want to read it through and through and repeat Tho perusal next Day ? the postmaster Irenr Rall a it Porr. Washington nov. 17.�?postmaster general Randall has been busily engaged for some Days in preparing his annual Tho important document is not yet finished but some statistics from the numerous tabular statements contained Iti the report will prove interesting.

For Tho year ending june 30, i8g8, there were 216,g28 service Miles and 4,224,525 running Miles. This shows an increase of 35 per cent in the service Aud running Miles in Tho year. Since 18g-5, Congress has added 1,2g7 new mail routes besides All the Southern in in Roules have been revived which makes an addition of 48,714 Lineal Miles of mail route added to the labor and expense of Tho department in less than eighteen months.

Postmaster Dennison a report for june 18g5, showed a surplus of $801,430 Over actual expenses. His second report for june 18gg, submitted by governor Randall his successor showed a deficiency of $965,693. Governor Randall a report for 1867 also showed a deficiency and this report for 1868, will show a Defi Oieno of $740,000, which has to to provided for by special appropriation. He recommends the establishment of a Telegraph system in All the principal cities and Post offices in the country alleging that it will secure a Revenue and save the people Money. A letter of fifteen or Twenty words is sent from Washington to new York and delivered there As a letter with a postage stamp upon the envelope at a Cost to the writer of the dispatch or letter of three cents for the stamp and ten cuts for the message. Full average rates will be presented in Tho report. These messages Aro to to delivered by the letter carriers thus securing prompt and Correct delivery. About a Labko a interesting fact touching Tho forced retirement of superintendent Clark Frem the printing Bureau has transpired. When senator Edmunds chairman of the Eom Raitto on retrenchment noticed Mcculloch that he would not proceed with the investigation of the affairs of the currency Berean so Long As Clark was there tha Secretary proposed to give Clark four months longer leave of a Benco. Or. Edmunds declined the proposition remarking that while be would impute no wrong to Clark be Felt satisfied that no evidence such As would be satisfactory to the Eom Mitre could to obtained from employees in that Bureau if or. Clark in any Way controlled it. After consultation with or. Clark the Secretary finally concluded to accept his resignation. Advocating a uni Foiatu system of adjourned meeting of the Board of Trade of Boston was held november Lgth. The following Reso Lulious was presented1 and unanimously adopted resolved thai the importance of telegraphic communication at Tho present Day is hardly second to that of the Post office and that in our widely extend cd country its use should to encouraged and promoted in every practicable Way. This Board therefore would express the boo that Congress would devise a uniform system which will bring the Telegraph hues of Tho United Quot slates within the Roach of All classes of our people and make them available for the transmission of All descriptions of intelligence.
