A NEW RIVAL RAILROAD TO THE EAST. The Central Pacific Railroad is to have a rival in the transportation ol freight and passengers. Shrewd capitalists capi-talists aud financiers have for several motiths been engaged upon the work of planning tbe construction of a new railroad, whereby the monopoly enjoyed i-y the Central may be destroyed aud a uealtby rivalry instituted. Negotiations Negotia-tions have so far progressed as to permit per-mit the official announcement that within sixty days ten thousand laborers labor-ers and mechanics will be put to work in constructing a competing railroad, starting from Davisville, Yolo county, nn the line of the California Pacific Railroad, and ending at or near Og-Jen, Og-Jen, Utah Territory, where a connection connec-tion will be made with the Union Pacific. Pa-cific. The combination is made up of i he Pennsylvania Central, the Pittsburgh Pitts-burgh and Port Wayne, the Chicago and Northwestern, Union Pacific and the Calilornia Pacific railroads, forming a through line from ocean to ocean over the best and most central routes in the United States. From Davisville the road runs to the north-eastern corner of California and enters Oregon, where Ben Holladay's Oregon road will connect; con-nect; thence due east along the plateau pla-teau south of Snake river to the northern north-ern extremity of Salt Lake a distance of about oue thousand miles. Tbe agricultural land on the proposed r 'Uie is of superior quality, and would .-peed ily be peopled and way traffic created. The company have negotiated ub the Rothschilds and other European capitalists for the necessary capital, and no bonds or subsidies will be asked. The Central managers have doubtless been informed of these pending negotiations, nego-tiations, and recent movements east of Salt Lake portend the construction of a road to the Missouri river that will render the Central independent of the Union Pacific. Iu fact, the Central, for self-protection, must build such a road. California must profit by these rivalries. Rates of freigbtand passenger passen-ger fares must be reduced, aud the best of results will follow. S. F. Chronicle. A Beggar Leaves $80,000 to his Cousin. Yesterday there died at the navy yard in this city a man who has long been the most eccentric character associated with the establishment. His name was Thomas Boyle, he was well advanced in years, being over seventy. Forabiut twenty years past he had held the position of bell-ringer in the yard. He was unmarried, and lived in a very mean and uncomfortable quarter quar-ter near the navy yard, although he was quite wealthy, the fortune left by him being estimated at about $SO,000, the greater portion of which was invested in-vested in desirable real estate. Notwithstanding Not-withstanding the fact that he was in possession of an ample income, he clung tenaciously to his petty post as bell-ringer, and only "two weeks ago went down to League Island to ship as a common teaman at seventeen dollars per month, being refused on account of his age. Boyle was never known to purcba-e anything in the wayof'eloth-mg. wayof'eloth-mg. From every vessel that arrived at the yard, he received gratuities of clothing in answer to his urgent appeals for help. Another of his eccentricities was officiating as his own clothes-washer, clothes-washer, an occupation at which he was frequently noticed in the yard. Boyle appeared to be afflicted with a mania for leaving a large Fum of money behind be-hind him, in which he was certainly successful. Being unmarried he leaves no near relative to inherit his wealth, which doubtless falls to the lot of his next kin, a cousin. Philadelphia Telegraph, Tel-egraph, April 20.
