SPECULATION MANIA. We are decidedly of opinion, that on particular occasions a mere statement of mater of fact, unaided by much of other reasoning or ilicstration, forms a stronger appeal to common sense than the most elaborate disquisition. In the spirit of this conviction, we shall pretent our readers with a list of the various new schemes at present before the public, for the employment of British capital, without the delivery of any opinions of our own on the comparative merit of their pretensons, beyond a remark or two on the distinctive features of the various lines of adventure. Our purpose, indeed, is rather to form a great general inference, than a series of particular conclusions—to shew by the very nature of the circumstances how necessarily the major part of this speculation must end delusively. When it is rendered unequirocally apparent, that a certain number of things cannot possibly exist together, it is trite to observe, that a portion of that number must bil in some stage or other; and that they should fail as soon as posable, is doubtless the most desirable consummation. The following is a list, and if not inclusive of all these projects, it a quite sufficiently so for the purpose to which we have alluded :RAILROADS.
