Pounds in New Yore.—Forty- two Democratic members of the IV Tate Legislature of New York (constituting, we believe, the Whole of that party in both Houses) have -addressed the people of the state on the subject of "the progress of misgovernment in the State." The address is one of considerable force, recapitulating the various acts of a majority which thCy con- sider as threatening "the ascen- dancy of constitutional law, the ipeace of the country, and integri- ty of the Union." The canals, it is stated, are no longer a source of revenue to the -State, and "are now unable to sustain the immense burden of ilebt which improvident legisla- tion has cast upon them." The total debt of the State on the 1st January, 1857. was over thir- ty-one millions of dollars, and, with the amount chargeable on the canal revenues, an aggregate above thir- ty-six millions. Complaint is made of the con- tempt manifested by the political majority towards 'the State Con- stitution and the Constitution of t...

Spirit Melodies. Night, dark and starless night, like a sable pall, rests heavily upon the silent earth. The wild tbrob- bings of busy life are hushed, and alone in my solitary chamber, I en- joy the luxury of quiet thought. AUme! yet soft, invisible fingers sweep the strings of my spirit-harp, sending forth gushes of unearthly melody. The the theme is "Love, and its hallowed influencesNot * that uncertain flame, which revels With the untamed passions of the carnal mind; nor yet the deeper, purer, holier, mother-love. But * that, than which earth or heaven knows no greater—God's love for man! What untiring watchfulness —what constant care—what patient forbearance—what faithful discip- line!

SKS The Southern Pacific Rail- road Company.—-The prospects of tMs great Southern enterprise are steadily and grandly looming up. The directors, we understand closed yesterday^ contract with Jdbo T. Grant & Co., of Georgia, the most celebrated and successful railroad contractors in the United States, for the completion of seven- ty-five miles of the road, and as iron sufficient for. the laying of twenty-seven miles of the track is already ou the ground, the pub- lie may confidently anticipate the completion of the seventy-five miles contracted for at a day suffi- ciently early to secure beyond a doubt the valuable charter granted by the State of Texas. There seems to be a rivalry growing up between the supporters of what is termed the Memphis and El Paso road and the Southern Pacific—a rivalry on the part of the former which is as silly as it is futile. The Memphis and El Paso road may become a profitable auxiliary to the great Southern Pacific, by forming a junction with it, bu...
