The Charleston Train   {Memphis & Charleston RR}
   Railroading is not quite so active as stockholders would like to see it. We witnessed the arrival of the Charleston train yesterday at 1 P. M., and were somewhat surprised to see so few persons emerge from its parallelogram. There were more omnibus and hack drives, pickpockets and porters, carriers and constables than passengers. We were told, however, that at Grand Junction the train was full as it could be.
