Thoroughfare to the Paoifio. Mr. Ellet, the accomplished practical civil engineer, has published a communication, urging the necessity ol a great central thoroughfare lo the Pacific. A plank road, be thinks, should be commenced by Government, from the central city in the Mississippi valley, lo be built due west, to the central and best harbor on the Pacific coast. "They can be made cheaply, with great rapidity, and produced by steam—saving the com of labor, and much of the supplies required for the support of laboring men. The line would be laid due west, on the parallel that passes through Philadelphia, Columbus, Indianapolis, St. Louis, the South Pass, and San Francisco, with such deviation, subordinate to this general direction, as the local topography and distribution of materials , may prescribe.— He says: A mere plank road, on which coaches could raske seven miles an hour, would enable us Id go from St. Louis to San Francisco, in ten, or, at farthest, in twelve days, and...

Carried away by Ihe glitter of uniforms and the splendid pageantry of the -soldier's life, nothing will please them short of entering-the army; or, perhaps, carried* away by the narration of maritime adventure*, they resolve on following the hazardous profession Of the sailor. But a very little experience of the rein ires of life generally banishes these idle dreanrs. Others pitch upon the clerical profession as most suitable to their ideas of living an easy and dignified existence, and enjoying the reverence of those around them, without reckoning on whether their parents or guardians are able in thefirst place to procure them the necessary course of education, or if they would subsequently have the good fortune to find a benefice. Many more equally delude themselves with regard to what are called professions. As a matter of course, they must be so...

The money wjis accordingly paid and the girl raffled. There was one person whom she hoped...

Bank of England. The gold and silver coin in the vaults of Ihia institution, on the 6th of January, amounted to the enormous sum of £15,024,802, or about $75,000,000. Considering that our political economists have often estimated the gold and silver coin in the United Slates as low as 580,000,000, this must be conceded to be a respectable amount of hard cash to be accumulated in ihe strong-box of even the Bank of England. A portion of this, we know, is drawn from the United Slates by a regular and continuous attraction across the water; and the question is as to the excellence of oar commercial system, under which our gold and silvecc*re drained from us to enrich this " monster" of a foreign country. / W An address has been Iwued by Chancellor Nicholas to the people of Kentucky, urging that the constitution be formed forth? gradual abolition of slavery in that State.
