The Northern Railroad.—On Friday last, the Directors of this Company paid a visit of inspection to the works. They started from the Queen's Wharf in the new Locomotive, Lady Elgin, at eleven o'clock, and inspected the various culverts and bridges along 12 miles of the line. The road so far as completed presents a most satisfactory surface for the passage of the engine. The speed attained at certain parts of the trip was at the rate of thirty-five miles—a velocity certainly equal to the fastness of the times in which we have the good fortune to live. The Directors very wisely have given instruction that the business of the line should be commenced at the earliest possible moment, and we do not doubt that this will be accomplished by the same energy which has characterized the proceedings of the Company since their operations were fairly commenced.
