notice, in regard to voting bonds for the

which appears in this isae. The copy
w only brought us this morning, and
we did not expect to get the proposition
in (Lis week at all when we wrote the
artie'e on railroad bon3?, c he where ap

Prom every quarter we are asked why
the IIcrai.t docs not tay something
about raihoad bonds?
Y; have stated to these parties very
frankly the reasons why the liERAI.D
has not, hitiu-rlu, opeti i it head about
the H called Tiunk Uailroa 1 I. nd-, uud
w n iw do .o in j.ublie rint. Fir.-f and
foremost, our advice and eo-operation
has not been asked by any of the high
contracting, parties that may be supposed
towMnr a railroad through C- a county ;
that i.s t.) say, by either an ajrent of the
proposed raiirond, company, nor by the
County CoiuitiisMoticr., nor by the citi
ztns who Fcexu to be tHki'ig an active
put in the matter, and under these c'r-
cuiutaiiee.s we did not feel like putting
oar oar in too abruptly. A gain, we are
iiio.-t abominably apt to tell the truth
for an K litor and if we we ctj ay j'tst
what we think on this question we s nuld
make some iui-u in I'lattsmouth malder
than a wet h-n, and on the other side

Lastly, wc have heaid i teuch talk in

many little peevish, selfih, useless jnal

reasons urged for or u;;tin-t their pas-.-afifl,
that having a tcusper somet; ing
similar to our'friend Jack lloibacb, we
feel .strongly tempted to shout take
y.ur bo mis, and tro to lil!ylick with
tl em only don't bo! her us any more
about tha matter. In short, we never
conceived a higher, more exalted idfa of
the immense patience and forbearance of
the GREAT llCLKR, than after listening
to a promiscous discission on the pro
priety or necessity of voting raihoad
bonds. It always struck us tint if the

there wa- a pretty good chauee fur al
most anybody to jiet in right and straight
