From Aiken lo Dora's Mine to Meet
the Saraunah Vallev Road.
Charleston's* New Opportunity.
'?he True Spot Designated by Mr.Cal
In the face of the groat and active ef
Sjrts that are now being made by intelli
gent populations everywhere to secure
th? advantages ' which are acknowledged
to bo gnlucd by additional railroad eom
ni uni cations, wo should be very much
<5.>ljgod to Senator Butler for tho public
awl far-seeing spirit evinced by his let
ter which wo publish iaanotber column.
X?or no doubt when Senator Bntb r wrote
thus to Senator Pendleton, he had in his
wind'!* rye thc late change in tho charter
?if tho old -Savannah Valley Railroad
Company. At the last session of the I eg
islatnro this charter was so amended that,
instead of running from Anderson, on
the Westside of Rocky, River, down tho
immediate valley of the river to Ham
bu gt as was the original intent, thecom
jnuir may now run their road on the East
md? <?t R'.cky River to Belton, and from
litton. dueSfouth. to Dom's Mino, some
^ja?y-mi??s^on the Edgefield and Abbe
ville Ku*. This they have determined
to do; and although they failed to secure
. envi?is to labor on tins route, still, notb
lng daunted, they are at this very timo
advertising to give out contracts for the
grading of twenty miles of the Road,
?: mmeneing at Anderson C. H. At the
tu xi w-ion ot the Legislature they wilj
ugjun spply for convicts, and will doubt
lew, get them. And Of course the ulti
mate designof the Savannah Valley Com
pany is to push on their Road io meet
outs at Edgefitld. From Dom's Mine to
Kdgelield is twenty-four miles; and a
railroad ronte already carefully recon
Koitertd, makes it only twenty-two?
Fn.in Edgefield to Aiken, by the Road
KOW ir: progress, is twsut\--one miles.
So in this year of grace ISSI another
gt-and opportunity opens itself to Edge
ll*!'!, and moro larticnlarly to Ctarles
t.m. And if Charleston would do her
duty-fy? there is no doubt ot thia being
tl?? ?hortest and most direct ronte to Cin
t'lAitsti-tv? believe Edgefield would elo
b-.-rn. Both Charleston and Edgefield
hav? missed too msnj* grand chances in
the past to be slumbering now over per
Laps ibe last one.
Of the route and connections North
?j ward from Anderson, we.wiH speak par
ticularly next week.
Arni as we meditate upon these poss!-"
bailies and probabilities, wo cannot help
thinking that when Mr. Calhoun put his
finger down on V Lott's," it foretold the
..Trenton" of the great fotnro. O?course
it only meant some spot thereabouts,
within a radius of t?>n or twelve miles.
Hui perhaps some of our readers have
?ever heard how tho great John C. Cal
hou?, away back in the remote depths o'
antl'iuity, when railroads were jost be
ginning to be built, took up a map, and
pottirg his finger first upon tho spot
w?.err now stands Atlanta, Ga., and then
upon "Lott's," S. C., said: " it these
two points grea'-cities will arise anti great
xailrnn/ls will ?ross each other in every

Wert? Summarily Put to Death.
A i-?;?uat bf thia unspeakably tiorri

needs no apology. In what they did they
reprtfented society at large, and were the

We -rant that even lynching may not

fascj-s in .a State where the lowest class is
large, and is easily made uncontrollable.
Bat if lynching will not cure the evil, it
will mitigate it. Nothing less than lynch

sjooting or hanging will not do, some still
harder death will be found.-jVWff and

WASHINGTON, Dec. 21st, 18-30.
Hon. Ceo. H. Pendleton, I', o'. Senate.
MY DEAR SIR: Our people on the Sout
or East side of the Blue Ridge Range <
Mountains, are extremely anxious to mafe
sime direct Railroad connection with Cir
cinnati and the Western cities. Tho chii
' obstacle to this very desirable end-tb
hitherto impassable .barrier of the monn
t ?n?-has been lately overcome by th
discovery of a PasB through which a,rail
road may be built, as 1 am informel
without a tunnel or a trestle, and with
grade of not more than seventy five feet t
the mile. The present terminus of th
Southern Cincinnati Railroad ot Cbalta
nooga, is too far to the West tor its ex teri
sion through this gap, and does not reac
- lirectly at leaat-those ports on the Al
lantic coast nearest to Cincinnati. Ni
ctn it traverse that fine agricultural an
m mufacturing region lying between tb
Blue Ridge and the sea eoist, without
branch diverging from its present lin
K istwardly, so as to pass the mountain
tirough this natural opening. Links of
trunk line are now being graded fron
A ken, S. C ; to Edgefield, and from E sb
S ?lion, on the Air-line Railroad toward
tais gop.(Eastatoe) which, if you will ex
a nine the map, you will find is the near
cit route from Cincinnati to Charlestor
I say "links of a trunk line." I mean b;
that different Railroad companies urde
charter from S. C , are being thusgraaed
wiiich by consolidation could be made t
t.-unk linc-and with continuation tbrougl
the mountains, and western connections
would make the shortest line to the se:
coist. ls it practicable, do you think, t:
make this connection with any of yon:
roads, so aa to make an independent direc
short trunk line? If so, in my judgment
oae of tho best and most profitable linei
could be established on the continent, an<
at a smaller expense than any similar en
t rprise in the eountry. These Roads ot
t ie Ewt side of the Blue Ridge are beic^
g-aded with convict labor, andona of then
his not cost more than $230 per mile, fo:
t?o grading, for the last eight miles, i
is true the progress is slow-for tho wan'
of capital-bot I believe if there was t
p ospect of having an extension to Cm
: ennati and thc western eities, capita
: would be forthcoming for their early com
pletion. Port Royal harbor, as you knowi
is one of the finest on the Atlant.c coast,
with water ofsufficient depth to admit the
arg^t vessels afloat ; and when tho Char
leston je.tties have been completed within
the next two or three years, we hope tc
hive twenty-five feet of water at that
Bar, so that the shipping would be amply
accommodated for ??ny amount of freight
Since the completion of the Southern
Cincinnati, terminating ns remotely as it
decs from us, many of our business men
are turning their aUention to Cincinnati
for many of your manufactures, such as
buggies, carriages, wagons, furniture, hard
ware. And, of coursa, with a direct
trunk line of Railroad through these
mountains, at a point snch as I have in
dicated, thia feeling would be immensely
iucreased, and a reciprocity of profitable
trade established. That section of coun
try north of a Hoe drawn from Augusta,
Ga., through Columbia and Cheraw, in
S. C , is unsurpassed in any part of-the
world for its endless water power lor ma
chinery; and cotton manufactories are be
ing, and will continue to be built upon
them. These manufactures will of course
want a market, and your city and other
adjacent western cities will be important
customers if quick1 direct transportador
should be at hand to take them.away.
Last summer after I left yon in Ken
tucky, I came over the Southern Cincin
nati to Chattanooga from Lamington, Ky.,
in about (cn hours. What is wanted, is a
road to Knoxville, and thence through the
mountains at some convenient pass direct
to the Atlantic; coast. Could not the Ken- j
tucky Central reach out in that direction
and establish an independent trunk line
such as 1 have suggested '? Our people in
8. C. would take hold of such a project
with earnestness and zeal, and aflopJ every
assistance in their power to make it one
ot the finest commercial highways in
America. We haye spent a vast amount
of money on the li!nc Ridge Railroad
which was to cross the mountains at the
Rabun Gap; and but tor the intervention
of the war,-the road would have been
completed. Perhaps this route might still
' J adopted with advantage, but from what
I have heard of thc Easiatce Gap route,
it would doubtless be cheaper than the
Rabun Gap route. Either, however, would
accomplish the object to which J take the
liberty of railing your attention, viz : A
shor'. direct, economical trunk line from
C.ncinnati to the Atlantic coast.
1 am. very sincerely, your obedient
M. C. BUTLER.

Hon. JJ. 0. lintier, Washington.
MY DEAR SIR: I have read, with much
interest, your letter in relation to railroad
connections between South Carolina and
Cincinnati. This subject occupied the at
tention of Cincinnati as long ag i as I can
remember. Indeed, on-3 of the earliest
recollections 1 have, ia of an illumination
of the city in honor of-a visit of Commis
sioners from South Carolina, in the inter
est of railroad connections Lt is very
obvious that the inter?s'.? of boin sections
will be advanced by greater f.tcilitu'.i of
intercommunication, than we now have.
The Cincinnati Southern railroad, finding
jts terminus at Chattanooga, does not an
swer all the reqn i remen ts of active busi
ness between the parts of the country of
which you speak. Thc difficulties in vhs
way of building the railroad, though
great, are by n> mian? in-uvjer ible
Examinations and surveys arc continually
pointing ont advantageous gaps and water
ways, by which grades can be rc laced, and
heavy tunneling, in a great n?easur?, be
avoide'. Tho new rou .es lo which yon
allude, tend in the sann* direction. Late
ly much interest has been excited in Cin
cinnati by a proposed exlen&ion of thc
Kentucky Central Railroad and the Louis
ville and Nashville Railroad, to tho Ten
nessee State line, there connecting with
the road to Knoxville, and the prospect is
that this extension will be speedily made.
The roads leading South from Knoxville,
combining with this extension, wsll ac
complish the purpose which tyn hu vc ?ri
view.:* I wilt see that your letter reacher
the proper authorities of the Kentucky
Central Railroad, who, I am sure, will give
it all the attention which the subject it
self, as well os your intelligent discussion
of ii, demanda.

hundred yards below, which is .*> consider
able detriment to tho. surrounding com
munity. They should be replaced as soon
as possible, and I deem it prudent that
you further call their attention to the fact
that the undertaker should secure well the
