The name of Senator Cowan has been before the' Senate some time for eon flrmation as Minister to Austria, tie Mr. Motley, resigned. At Senator Sumner's Instance, the correspondence between Secretary Betv- ard and Mr. Motley, relative to the resignation of the latter, was called for, and after a long delay, has been sent in but not yet made public. Its contents are known to tie as loiiows, ana out braced In two letters, ono from Seward, covering one from an " American gen tlcman traveling in Europe," and one from Mr. Motley to Seward, in reply.

Mr. Seward's letter, conveying this precious bit of anonymous goBBip, was only long enough to ask, In diplomatic stylo, what Mr. Motley had to say for himself. , Mr. Motley replies by a flat denial of the admiration for the Government of England, charged to him, and refers to his historical and other writings, to gethcr with Ills whole life-record. vindication ncainst the libel. He does not go luto a defense, by even denying the use of disrespectful language to wards the Secretary and President, ne admits that he has spoken of the Frcsl- dent and Congress freely, under his own roof, among bis friends, and is not aware that a citizen living abroad, even in an official capacity, has not the right to en tertain and express his views upon the great national questions presented by the overthrow of the rebellion. He be Hcves we should abolish and forever prohibit political distinctions, on account of race or color, by an amendment to the Constitution. Having thus defined bis position, he closes by tendering his resignation without assigning a reason therefor. , It remains for the.

There seems to bo a general awaken ipg upfln the subject of groat railroad monopolies. The exporienco of some of the older States, that, in their eager ness to develop tholr resources by the construction of railroads, have bound themselves band and foot, and become the slaves of a power delegated by them selves in an unfortunate b'our, Is awak ening tha West, where the controlling hand of moaopolies already begins to be felt in legislation. A bill in now pending before the II linois Legislature, providing for the re. peal of all bills consolidating diHe-ent roads, past and present. It also fixes three cents per mile ns the maximum of passenger faro, and roduces tho pros ent freight tariff twenty per cent ; com pels the companies to rcceivo grain at all stations by weight, and makes them liable as common carriers, and affixes penalty to their refusal to comply with this request, : No State can afford to Indulge in hos' tile legislation towards railroad companies; but they must recognize the fact that all corporations within the State, are the creaturet of law,' endowed with special rights - and privileges, for the public Rood, by tho will and according to the wise discretion of the people. ' Any attempt on the part of corpora tions to dictate, control or regulate legislation, must be promptly met by legisla tion that will lake away the power, and effectually crush out tho disposition to such interference. f ' Wcr -tiu our 'Slate'Svill not so far neglect Its duty in this 'respect, us to make any future conflict between the State and its railroads possible.

MAIN STEM VWOH FACiric. This line is oroercssing from Omaha westward with a rapidity never before equaled in building railways. It used to be thought a great feat to lay one mile of track per day) but here two miles, and even two-and-n-half have been laid. The cars oro now running 300 miles from the Missouri. Hitherto the nearest railway connection has been by way of St. Joseph, 225 miles from Omaha. It has cost the company about 91.000 apiece for transporting locomo tives, aud 9175 for each platform car, from St. Joseph to Oinoha. The completion of the road through Iowa to Council Bluffs will enable the company to make a great saving in tbo- transportation of its material and supplies ' "Two boats loaded witu iron have snncecd and cone to the bottom.
