A correspondent of the New York
Times says this great work, w.bc-was
prcjected manyears ago is being pushed
teadily forward, and will be running,
before many months, to the foot of the
North Carolina mountain. This road
opens up for Knoxville the rich Cotton
lands of the Little Tennessee, and the
mineral wealth of Smoky Mountain,
and will, when completed to the sea
board, pour them into the lap of Char
leston. By the construction of a road
from Augusta to the Blue Ridge, via the
Savannah valley, and a connection, from
Augusta with Port Royal the great West
will find the shortest route to the sea,
and Augusta become a great depot for
Western produc's, from which shippers
at Savannah, Port Royai, and .Charles
ton will make up their cargoes.
The completion of this work is only a
matter of time. The scarcity of money
at presents forbids any material aid to
the enterprise from this section-; but
two o three good crop years will give
us means- for the prosecution of the
work. when, we cannot doubt, that an
enterprise of such preeminent impor
tance will receive theattention it deserve..

Vint for the great central line from
Vsshington to New Orleans w ith the

croak about Augusta as a finished city,
and talk about going to some n.ore pro
mising locahty. look well to the natural
s antages of this sturdy city, before
hazas ding the uncertainties of a change.

The Albany (Ga.) Patriot, of the 17th

Those who were fortunate enough to

learn, also, that the views expressed by
this paper in regard to the di ecrsifiention
of the crops are generally approved by
the planters, who concur with us in the
opinion that if, in the past year, the

planting a full provision crop, the South

DIsTRIBUTIONs.-We would call attention_
to the opinion of one of the leading papers
of Canada on this subject:
Most of our readers have no doubt read
some of the numerous advertisements of
Gift Enterprises. Gift Concerts, &c , which
appear from time to time in the public.
prints, offering most tempting bargains to
those who will patronize them. In most cases
these are genuine humbugs. But there are
a few respectable firms who do ba iness in
this manner, and they do it as a means of
increasing their wholesale business, and not
to make money. From such firms, it is true,
handsome and valuable articles are procured
for a very small sum, and what is more im,
portant, no one is ever cheated. Every per
son gets good value for his dollar; because
as we have stated, it is intended to act as an
advertisement to increase their ordinary
business. We have seen numbers o prizes
sent out in this way by Sherman, W atson t
Company, of Nassau Street, N. Y.. and
there is no doubt that some of the articles
are worth eight or ten times the money paid
for them, while we have not seen or heard
of a single article which was not worth the
dollar which it cost. ~ But this is only one of
the exceptions of this rule, for as a general
thing the parties engaged in this business
are nothing but clever swindlers.
