Bilt tne Dreinen! aud brakemen on tlie Bfltimpra & Oiiio road were so angi-v at the roductioñ made by that company that they were unwtiflihg to wait until the appointod time. The result wns verv fortúnate for the country, för, luid the strike occuiTod in Oetober, iustead of July, it wotild probably have been so fuily organized that its suppresaion would have been much more diflir-nlt, ilnd the restoration óf peace and resumption of trajlio much longer postponed."
