The Latest News from Caynxa Bridge. Who has not heard of tho "Cavuga Bridge"—a structure built long before the Erie Canal, and over which the tide of trade and travel was wont to flow in an almost uninterrupted stream ? For many years this was the principal crossing place of travellers and emigrants from Kew England to the West; and in its prosperous days ths stock of the Cayuga Bridge was eagerly sought as an investment. But tbe canals first, and afterward? the railroads, furnirhed more coavenient and speedy means of transit than tha emigrant wagons and stago coaches, which paid heavy tolls to "the Bridge ;" and for a long time it has been evident that the fast-advandng progress'of decay had de-Btroyeditstuabeni, it would not be re-built. Farewell to "the Long Br dge ;" ¦ it has been a faithful servant, and millions have been carried safely over it.—Roehester Democrat.

They tell us' in iinpresirivetcnns of poverty, or wealth, oi' abandonee or destitution, of prosperity or adversity, of weal or woe. How much of happiness ot misery lijmgs upon the balance-sheet of the merchant; how high does his heart beat with exultation and joy as it, confirms hid bright anticipations of wealth; and how low does it sink in despondency when it proclaims, a sad story of threatened bankruptcy and financial rulnl We are not about . io dwell upon mere individual affairs, however, but upon a theme of national interest—the aggregate wealth and productive greatness of the United States.
