RAILWAY SPECULATION.âFew documents have pro- ceeded from Parliament of more curious character than one that has just been laid before the House of Commons, on the proposition of Mr. Gibson Craig, relating to sub- scriptions for Railways now under the consideration of Parliament. It is an alphabetical list of the names, with descriptions of the occupations and professions, as well as places of abode, of all persons subscribing to the amount of E2000 and upwards, to all railway subscription contracts, showing the amount subscribed by each person for every railway to which he may be a snbscriber, and the total amount of such subscription by each person. The list of the names of these railway subscribers occupies about 150 folio pages of close print, and the najnet of the railways themselves occupy six columns, and number no fewer than 209. The total amount of subscriptions by persons who have subscribed JMOOO 01 upwards to any railway sub. cription contract deposited in the Private Bill Office dur- ing the present session of Parliament, is the enormous sum of £61,603,707 16s. 8d.
