We lentp that the Louisville, Cinciunati
and CharlIst6n Rail Road conipany have i o
purchased the Charleston and Halburlr r
road, and .that it :'will .:be. iinmedately p1t c
under the direction of a- local Board and a 1
first rate Elagineer.
'rih Directors have also decided to4 put
the road rrom Columbia to Branchville, un- t
der contract on the first of next Februarv. 1
The route decided on,.isto run Croup Colm- 4
bin iti a straight line 85 miles to 'the Con- I
gares river, a liule aliove McConp' ferry, I
where it willcross that stream antid procr'd!
by way of .Orangebotrgh, *or ai little to the I
east of it, to lirnnehville., The reasons
which' iniluenced. tfie Board to select this
ronte,-we onderstand, are-these-the river
ait this point.cnn be liassed where it is not
i more than 450r feet wide, on a rock bottom;
at this'pibtif,'too, a road can beunited from
Canmden, on good grtiund,.passing by States
burg, and through the richest part of Ker
shaw and Sumter Districts. Between the
Cohgarce and Orangehurgh the road will
be accessible to the best part of St. Mat
itheivs' Parisht ani or Ormigchurgh District.
-lly crossing' the Congarec so low down,
it neets the steamboat navigation. where it
' will rarely be interrupted, the diflictihues in
ithat navigationi being above that point.
r Another-greet olject in selectitng lratich
Sviale asthe point ofunion is, that it will ein
I bie the ears from Columbia., to iteet those
from Charleston, so as to convey all the
i passengers from the North,* from Camden or
Columbia -to Augnsta, thius forming nit im
r portant part oFthe grear rail road route from
j Boston to New Orlearis. -
, 'The line Ilius selected will be a few miles
t longer, than the one by the Columbia bori.hc
and the sand hills. -to Orangebmrgh, tit the

1 This line by McCord's catn also be tgraoded

FLoRIDA WAR.-All hopes of the ter
miaintion of this protracted war, have vnn
ished, we believe, for the p)rescnt. The
Cherokee Deputatlion hits failed, the various
taks have ended only in talk, and the last
advices inform us of' a skirmish betwcen
Gen. Jesup and a small party of Itndians,
in which he killed five and captured nine.
An oflicer of the Army was so badly wound
ed in tle knoo that amputation is rendered
necessary. Since the capture of Powell,
Philip and others, SanL Jones seems to be
the active spirit, and lie has now retreated
with his followers, into a large Cypress
swanp, which is almost impenetrable.
More Abolition morements in Congrss.
Senator Morris, of Ohio, has inoroduced
a series of Resolutions in the Senate, of the
most violent and offensive character. A
iong other things, it is declared, "That do
mestic slavery as it exists in the Southern
and Western States is a moral and political
evil, and that its existence, at the time of
the adoption of the Constitution is not re
cognized by that instrument as an essential
Clement in the exercise of its- powers over
the several States-that it Is the indisputa
ble right of any Stato or n*iy citizen, as
well as an indispenisable duty to enleavor
by till legal he'ans to' abolish whatever is
immoral and,4inftil" &c.
- oin Q. Adams raves-like a naniac since

swears that lie -will not submit to it; that
it is tunconsitutional, null and void, and
