Central Railroad accommodation line.

We learn from the advertisement of the Central Railroad Company that an accommodation train has been put on that road between this city and Charlottesville — to leave the latter place at 2.30 A. M., and Richmond at 3 o'clock P. M. The time of departure from Charlottesville enables persons along the route to send milk, fresh meats, and vegetables to the city, and for the sale of these the company has appropriated a warehouse, where they can be exhibited and disposed of. The first train will be run on Monday next.

This arrangement will be a very great accommodation to the public, and a very considerable benefit to this city. The company deserves to be well supported in the undertaking. If it is not immediately remunerative, however, it will soon build up a large business which will pay most handsomely.
