The President announced the nhji-et of
the meeting, and ititroduccil Mr. S. E. El
liott, Civil Enginter. who addressed the
citizens on the subject of railroads, sotting
forth in a clear and logical manner the in
terests of our people, and the ndvantnges
that would bo gained by the construction
and completion of branch Pacific Rail
road from Marysville to Portland, through
the rich and fertile region of Southern Or
eiron. The Speaker wiih followed by
Messrs. Douthltt, Fay and Gaston, in well
timed and appropriate remarks.
The following preumble and resolutions
were read and adopted :
ll'lierai: That in the Pacific. Railroad
Rill, as it has parsed and became u law.
there is no provision made for a branch
railroad, connecting the Sacramento river
with the Columbia, via the Regno River,
Uinpipui and Willamette valleys, which
provision thu omitted in said law, was
contained in House Kill .'1(51 of the '2d Ses
sion of the .'17th Congress, introduced and
advocated by the lion. Mr. Campbell,
March Mth, 1802, nud as such an omis
sion w an act generally injurious to the in
terests of the people of Oregon and North
ern California, therefore be it.
llcsolval, lRt, That we are determined
to do all in our power to remedy the same,
by obtaining tlie same grant of land from
the Government for Kiieh branch Railroad,
as is coutnined in the present Pacific
Railroad ; to-wit : Five alternate section-'
on each side of said road, and aid in bonds
to the amount of $10,(100 per mile for the
valleys, nud 318,000 per mile for the moun
tains. Rcfolrctl, 2d, That wo arc decidedly in
favor of a railroad connecting the Willam
ette and Sacramento valleys : that we will
co-operate with our fellow citizen in other
counties, and our friends in California,
in urginir our R"prcsentatives in Congress
to labor to procure giants of laniN. and
he aid of loans similar to that extended to
other great lines of public improvement, of
National importance and military necessi
ty, that we feel the impoitauce of picsent
iiig our requests backed by statistics, facts,
and careful surveys in regard to the niililu
ry necessity and practicability of such n
road ; und of its prospective importance
to the country in developing its agricul
tural nml mineral resources, and enlarging
its business operations and with pi oner
estimate of its cost, statement of grades,
and other facilities for its construction;
and that so far as procuring aid from the
Government in the construction ol said
road, the interests of California and Oregon
are identical, and that we will act in if no
State line divided us.
Jlewlcal, 3d, That a committee of ten
bo appointed by this meeting, to solicit
und receive subscriptions, to aid in making
a preliminary survey of such propeml
Road ; that the condition of such subscrip
tions shull be, that the amount so sub
scribed and paid in shall entitle the con
tributors to the same privileges us thu Cal
ifornia contributors, in regaid to being in
corporators of the road under its Califor
nia Charier ; and that the same shall be
paid when the survey has madu certain
pi ogress in Oregon one half when thu
survey has reached thu Uinpqua, from
the South, and one half when the survey

Jacksonville, May 15, 1803.
A Soi.dikiis' Git.vvKVAiii) A enrres
pondent of the Evening J'ot, with the
army before Vicksburg, sends tlio following
description of a soldiers' graveyard :
Perhups one of the first things you would
notice in the vicinity of A'ieksburg would
be the long lines of graves on tho liver
slope of the levee, and bordering our path
within u tool or two ol it lor a consnleiable
portion of our walk ; they do not lie side by
side, there is scarcely room on the slope of
the leveo for two abreast, but. nro Itntieil
head to foot, n long single file of dead thai
crowd upon tho path of the living. Every
regiment curries its dead to that portion of
the levee, immediately in front of it ; and if
you hud no other guido tho rudu head
boards would tell you what regimental
camps you wero passing.
The best of these heud boards aro only
Cieces of box lids. Sometimes those that
elong to one regiment or to one battery
present a neater appearance and similarity
of execution, that betrays the workman
ship of tho same hand, some one who has
been tacitly elected by his comrades " car
ver of the graveboards ;" somo kindly soul
that, with deadly handled jackniie, car
ves tho name of comrade after comrade
on these fruil materials to guide the friends
that may some time come to tuko him home.
In tl.c majority of cases, however, the
name is only written with u pencil on n
small pirce'of board, ami in many instances
only a slick or small bough is Muck into
the ground at either end of the grave to
warn the throng that passes to withhold
their feet. Nearly all of these graves arc
below the level of the river, but it is the
only place where the dead can lind a rest.
The ground where the euuins tire pitched
! i too wet. and the top of the levee must be
received as a thnrnugliuiro lor the living.
The sight of I lice graves so sligtly mark
ed, and whose border!) encroached upon the
only highway, shocks one at first, but in a
day or two ouu bccomis accustomed to it.
Soldiers loiiitg among the graves, and smoke
their pipes sitting on the ground, regaid
iss of the fact that only a couple, of feet be
neath theiti lies one who, pel Imps, a few
days before lounged and tsntuked there us
unconccrni d as they.

Sir R. J. Murcliisoii, in an address before
the Geological section of the British Asso

ly production of Great Urittnin :
" We are now consuming anil exporting
80 millions of tons of coal annually a pro

ing. Of iron ore we raise and smelt up
wards of seven millions of tons, producing
3.820,000 Ions of pig iron. Of copper ore,
we uiise from our mines 230.000 tons,
which yield 15,908 tons of melalic copper;
and from our native metaliu minerals we
obtain of tin 0.005 tons; of lead 03,525 tons;
and of zinc 4.35? Ions. Thu total annual
value of our minerals and coal is estimated
at X2C.Q03.573. and thai of metals (Hie
