Mr. foh'tor: This magnificent enterprise
and the line as ; M.r?to<l and sanctioned by
some of the iinit engineers of the United!
States, is outside of any clique or mere see- !
tional feelings. The Kabun (Jap as the !
| central point, thence to Knoxvillc, theme
to Anderson, has attracted the eye and sa?
ieity of some of the first men of Pickens
District-. They luul a recognizance thirty- !

portions ot' Tennessee, North Carolina,
| (Jeorgia ami South Carolina?the shortest
connecting link froni the Atlantic to the
' West, struck the eye of the CJeneral Cioverninout,
ami John Q. Adams, at that

his engineers there for months. Had it not
boon lor his federal proclivities, and had ho |

Washington, .July 2.?The government
has received a letter from .Major 15en.
MeCulloeh, dated Camp Scott, in which
he states as his belief that one of the ren
itations was to guard their women from tho
apprehended excessive gallantry of our
soldiers; and, besides, that the leaders resorted
to this exodus to keep the people to- A ]
get her, and prevent the disuIfeeted Saints
from throwing themselves on tho army for
protection. The Mormons, he says, do
not believe the army has orders or authority
to pursue them, and honee congratulate
themselves that the)'are out of harm's way
from that source.
Col. McC. says n small force of the Mor
mons still in Nilt JjiiJje City, ready to
lire it, perhaps, in the event of the approach
of the army, lie thinks u nreal mistnko
has been committed in permitting the Mormons
to jjather their crops ; as this, while,
it strengthened thoin, diminished relatively
the power of the military forces. ]t was
still reported that the Mormons were j?oin<?
to Solium, but upon this full reliance could
not lie placed. Tlic bullet in that the place
of refuse litis long ago been selei ted.

Their powers are superior to either those of "1

CiiKsTr.it, July 10.?Mr. Editor: On
yesterday evening, after supper, J. I. Hubert
Wilson, who lived about four niile.s
above, this town. w;is killed hv his Rfr>n.soii
John O. Darby. It is f*nid that Wilson
was essaying to hiind-eufl'his wife, Darby's
mother, ami take her lip stairs for the purpose
of cow-hiding lior, when Darby,who is a ^
young man of about iiiuctoon years old, and
"lived in the family, interfered and was attacked
by Wilson with a drawn Bowie knife.
Darby retreated from the house and around jgjjj
n, ?i iiiMiii luinniiii^ nun mill 11" 11.
intent, when Parity ngain entered the house,
i jerked up a loaded shot gun and discharged
1 the contents into the breast of Wilson, killing
him instantly. Of course liquor had a
| large share in this most deplorable business.
Darby came to town last night and surren- rat
| dered himself to the proper authorities.?
