disorder or misconduct has been easily

The stale of religion has at all times
been cheering and there has been, aa we

is necessary to understand the situation of

of the Alps, and is probably eight thous

surrounded by higher peaks, many of

French and Italian sides, mountain tor
rents, having tbeir source ou Mount Ce
nis, ran down through deep vallcya witb
precipitous sides, so that the Alpine chain
is, aa it were, half cut through by these
fissures. An excellent road baa been long
in existence ever the paw, running along
the borders of these streams and atg-xag-
giug up tbe mountain, and Mr. Fell has
built bia railway alongside of this road,
from which it rarely parts company, so
that the people on tbe car and those on
the highway lor nine-tenths of the dis
tance could shake hands with each other if
so disposed The mere laying out of the
railroad, therefore, was nothing ; bet the
difficulty which had to be and is surmount
cdf'waa to invent a species of steam rail
way that would climb np or go down aa
steep hills and turn around as sharp cor
ners ss if horse and wagon, and yet be as
completely under control. These things
are successfully accomplished by the use
oi a road with three rails, upon which run

which rests the weight of the cars are the

time it turns back ami forth, elevates yoa
higher and higher ; yet ail tbe lime keeps

bends of the road are one-half tunnelled
out of the solid rock, and the ether half
built out over yawning chasms, clouds al
most obscuring tbe watercourses at the
bottom. You can throw a stone down the
monutain side, and it will cross one line
of the railway after another, and finalty
reach the ground at the station the train
left a half beur before, but which is still

No one who crosses Mont Ocnis,

letter to the Baltimore Committee says t
"It is time, therefore, that the people
should sssrmble and tako counsel togeth

It is especially incumbent on tbe mem
bers of the old whig party, the followers
of Henry Clay, te dismiss fiotn their
minds all prejudices against the name of
Democracy, aad to lend their aid inaho
good work of constitutional restoration.
The whig party bad its birth ia resis

by the Executive. Its vital principle waa
and is, resistance to tyranny. Bet what

The Waahintrton correspondent of
the Baltimore Gaaetto says that, in
after times, when the doings of tho
Thirty ninth and Fortieth Congress
shall be reviewed, the student of his
tory will seek in vain for a sensible
solution of their enactments. Ad.
mining the object namely, that
of maintaining power, to be justifi
able (if prudent) npon maccbiavelli
an principles, still posterity will be
puzzled to reconcile tbe meana to tbe
end. Ih hot haste they hare, . at a
coat to tho country, according to
Senator Sherman, of half a million dot'
Inrs, admitted to seals in both Houses
a set of scalawags, whose mere person,
al appearance (te say nothing of their
conduct nod confab) would disgrace
a Congress of negroes in Congo.
Besides, it is known that a majority of
these rascals are at any moment fesdy
to sell themselves! This tfctjr
I heard a Republican Senator declare
that ' it stood indifferent" whether
any considerable nnmber of them
could be held in the traces without
an outlay of money, which the Radi
cals con Id not afford to spare 1 A ds
