From oar Travelling Correspondent.
ATJQUBTA, April 15.-The trip from Savannah to this
point furnished no food for reflection ; in fact, lt nover
furnishes food for anything, except at Millen, where the
hungry passengers hungrily ball, eagerly attack, hastily
devour, and promptly pay for, a very good first-class
second-rate railway station dinner.
I need not describe Augusta to the people of Charles?
ton, who are all aw;re that it is a beautiful semi-coun?
trified and semi citified (I take the liberty of coining my
own words as I proceed) place, with handsome broad
streets and a fine wide Broad street. Green and Telfair
streets are of particularly imposing appearancejln this
?pring season ; and the broad avenues, lined wfth beau?
tiful trees moat beautiful in the wealth of their green
foliage, reminds one forcibly of Savannah.
Nothing In Augusta ls more worthy of note than the
ladies, who are most tantalizingly lovely, tucked under
their little "sundown" hats. These hats are theehape of
a ohaflog dish cover-all of the ladles represent chafing
dishes-andas they trip along Broad-street, with their
heart-piercing little bats perched on the prettiest little
mooking-bird heads, each head owning a face most pro?
vokingly bewitching In the prertnessof ita coquet tish
boaaty, lt ls enough to canse an absent-minded lndl
v vlSual to forget the name of his maternal ancestor.
' Speaking of pretty ladles, reminds me of one of the
.-prettiest hem,-reminds me of flu tact that th? belle of
_ Augusta is st lut engaged to immigrate inlu' the United J
. SUtee-of matrimony. Every one who baa ever visited
? August? will at once know to whom I refer, when I aay
that lois lovely : o ung lady ls neted not only for her ex?
treme beauty, but for the extraordinary smallness of her
vals); which ls something larger than a wedding ring.
Great preparations are being made hero for the Fair
that is to tako placs '?bo first week in May. The Fair is to
be gotten up for tho purpose of raising funds to be ap?
plied to the enlarging of the building now used for the
orphans under charge of the Sisters of Meroy. It will
be a grand Fair, and a grand affair altogether. The
ladies-God bless tbeml-are working their little fingers
mott Industriously, and sewing hard, to make the cause
succeed more than merely so-so.
The young men here would take premiums at a grand
drinking tournament, even though a select committee of
Charleston boys were sent on here to contend with thom
for the championship. I nover remember to have seen
such enthusiastic imbibings, even at a Mayor's election
- In my nativo land.
The negroes hero arc working, but they are working
: Tinder ?omedifficulties. 'Iany of them are industriously
-4 engaged IQ sweeping and cleaning tho streets, which is
?? Tathor an unpleasant task ? hen the days are sultry and
each darky has h is pedal extremities beautifully orna?
mented with a massive chain, to which ls appended a
heavy iron bau. Ihe military authorities here are de?
termined that tho freedmen shall work; anl so for Idle
noes, vagrancy or any misdemeanor, they treat them to
a ball and chain, and render them useful as weU as or?
namental. The n*groes present a highly interesting
appearance when artistically aid poetically grouped to?
gether in Broad-street, with a broom in hand and a
hall on foot.
1 he great excitement of the week has been the grand
-concerts of the Brothers POZKANBEJ, who have bien re?
ceived here with a perfect ovation, drawing crowded
hons M every night The applause with which the per
formiLco was greeted, night after night, was greater
than has ever been drawn from an Augusta audience.

Quite a gloom has been thrown over the city by the
unaccountable suicide of Col. H. H. CUMMINO, one of
Augusta's most esteemed and honored citizens, and one
of the ablest lawyers in the State. This unfortunate
victim of mental aberration, who was, tc all appear?
ances, in full possession of evory essential to happiness,
suddenly, *?-h his own hand, put an end yesterday to a
life that had been spent in the exercise of all the vir?
tues that alorn'manhood. Tis true, indeed, that truth
ls strange-far stranger-than tbc strangest fiction.
I have been received by the leading representatives of
the Press here with the most unbounded kindness, and
the most cordial courtesy. Let the following names be
added to the roll of honor, sh.comprising gentlemen
who, in response to the valuable letter of introduction
furnished me by THE NEWS, have received me with ex?
traordinary attention. Of the Chronicle and Sentinel,
Messrs. HENRY MOSE and General A, B. WRIGHT, editors;
Messrs. 8. A. ATKINSON and MARTIN D. CALVIN, assist?
ants. Mr. ATKINSON was once oditor of the Constitutional
ist and Field and Fireside, and in him I recognized an old
and esteemed friend. He ls a perfect gentleman, and
treated me with extreme kindness.
Messrs DUTCHEB and RANDALL, of the Constitutional
ist, are gentlemen of most pleasing manners and ex*
treme talent-the latter is the author of "My Maryland,"
and is n scholar well versed in the literature of the day.
To both I am much indebted, and also to Mr. ELLS, ot

The Globe Hotel, which has had the honor of num?

South Carolin? Ballroad Company.
We are indebted to the politeness of HENBT T. PEAKS
Esq., the Superintendent, for a copy of a pamphlet COE
teining the "Proceedings of the Stockholders of th
Sonth Carolina Ballroad Company and of the South
western Railroad Bank, at their Annual Meeting In th
city of Charleston, on the 13th and 14th of February
The pamphlet is from the * ell-known press cf Mr
JOSEPH WALKER, and presents a handsome appe trance
For the information of our readers, who, we know
are greatly interested in this Road, we ?.ive a synopsl
of the Report:
When Charleston was evacuated the rolling stock o
the Company was Bent up the Northeastern Road, ant
after being hauled about from place to place, waa fl nail;
left at Camden, where it was destroyed, just one yea
ago, by au expedition from the coast under Genera
POTTED. The properly whloh happened to be 11 Colum
bia when SH BRM AK reached there, was Bent up to Ohos
ter, where it t till remains. We can not go into the par
tlculars of all the damages the road met with, as well a
the destruction of the depots, workshops, tools, ant
material of all kinds and description.
On the 19th of June last the rood was turnod over u
the Company by the military authorities under ccrtoii
conditions and restrictions. They were without avalla
ble means, and almoet without transportation. Bu
they went to work under these most discouraging dim
cult les, and by dint of energy, perseverance and cease
less vigilance and activity, on the part of the officers
the road was open to Colombia by tho flrBt of October
last, and to Augusta on the first or April.
The financial condition of 'he Company, of necessity
occupies a great deal of attention on the part of tho Di
reclion; for, while it is much better than that of mon}
other roads and corporations, it is nevertheless sur
rounded with difficulties. The moans aid the proportj
of the Company have been seriously impaired, and c
large portion of the debt his leached maturity: Prln
clpal, $2,2:4,000, to which must be added arrears of In?
terest, $496,799.47; making a total of indebtedness ol
$2.729,799.17 to be met at this time. New bonds, on
doned with the guarantee of the State, are offered tc
the bondholders in substitution of those past due, and
the accrued interest. These will be due In twenty years,
with interest at five per cent, per annum. The Direc?
tion design to provide by regular semi-annual payments,

The Board paya a merited tribute to tho valuable ser?
vices and energetic efforta of the General Superinten?
dent, in executing "Als work,' foll of difficulties, amidst
trials, at times, painfully, officially, and personally
embarrassing." "Eight months ago, thev received eighty
milts of road without organization, and without means
or facilities of any kind, anrLwith jhe labor of the coun?
try utterly disorganised. Tne:?? re bave in operation
two hunered and seven miles of railroad, and have re?
placed four important bridges, with substantial, though
temporary sri os t Itu tea.'? -
Next follows the Report of the General Sn perin ten
lent, which ia replete with intereat, and we regret our
inability to follow J? through the various details cf
"destruction"and "je-conatruotion." We have axjao
xs prensa t ? few ttsma aatj. Passing over the recwriW
md expenditures, represented by the usual groat array
rf figures, where the Confederate dollar waa the unit of
raine, we find that the gross income in greenbacks
Crom June 19 to December 31, 1865, was $418,757.19, the
net income being $196,985.
The loss of assets is set down at $8,612,945.67; and
loss of property at $1,629,114.64. (The amount of loss
of assets is given in Confederate currency, principally
consisting ol debts due the company by the Confederate
Government for service rendered,]
One of the most interesting tables of'he report ls
tho "comparative statement of cotton, grain, live stock,
etc., brought to Charleston by the South Carolina Rail?
road, from 1814 to 1866 inclusive." In the twenty-two
years, covered by this repot t, we find that 5,4.1,071 bales
of cotton were transported over this road, an ave?
rage of 215,998 biles per annum. The maximum was
In 1855, when it reached 449.564 halos; the next largest
in 1868, when lt was 428,462 bales. The minimum in
1864, whon only lo,315 bales were brought down. In
1860, 314.619 bales; in 1861, 120,673 bales; 1862, 24,881
bales; lu 1863, 48,145, and in 1865, 35,5 '6 bales.
No flour ls reported for the first two years. The num?
ber of barrels cf flour transported over this road from
1846 to 1865 (twenty years) ls 823,377. Maximum in
lou?, when lt was 146,970 barrels, and minimum in 1860,
when only 125 barrels are rcportod.
Number of bushels of grain transported over this road
luring the last twenty years, 4,342,447. Greatest in
1855 : 817,662; leaat in 1851, when it was only 547.
Barrels of ntvU stores transported during the same
twenty years, 240,784; greatest in 1860, when it bad
risen to 54,439.
During the last eighteen years, the road transported
151,616 head of live stock. Greatest in 1800: 15,213.
Nearly all these tables show that the business of the
road was steadily on the increase from year to year, up
io tho commencement of the nar; a td there ls every
-eason to hope for a continuance of this ratio, as soon as
;be country shall have recovered (rom the prostration o'
1er industry, caused by the war.
The affairs of the road, on the wholo, are in a prosper
)us condition, when all the circumstances of the times
ire taken into consideration. The confidence of mon'
lyed men ls waxing stronger, and South Carolina Bail'
md stock has been steadily rising from week to week;
ind If money were not so very scarce in this latitude'
re have no doubt these ehareu wou'd bring their par
-slue even now.
THE PROCLAMATION E4FLAINXO.-It seems that a con

THE ADJOURNMENT QUESTION.
A respectable portion of the Radical party in tho

for continuing tho session through the simmer, and I
are in favor of adjourning in June, or the early part of
