OOLUMBIA, B. C., Friday, May 14.-My trip
from Charleston to Columbia was a pleasant
one. Conductors Kennedy and Thames were,
as ever, most attentive, and I enjoyed ? chat
en routs with H. T. Peake, Esq., who was on
the alert to detect and remedy anything wrong
in the rolling slock, road-bed or buildings of
the hage railroad of which be itt the able and
indefatigable General Superintendent. .
I made the most of my time in tatting with
the farmers whom I met in the oars. Of
course, there wore ?e many different opinions
as there were men, but I was able to reach
thesa general conclusions: ; '
The farmers, with but ?. few foolish ex?
ceptions, aro planting full crops of corn,
which ia doing well in spite of the backward
spring. The cotton will have to be planted
over very generally, aa the stand ia bai and
muoh that is up looks yellow, although it has
greatly improved in the last ten days. Be?
tween Orangeburg and this cicy, I saw sev?
eral extensive' fields of the staple where the
stand was all that could be desired; bat the
plant was oulyafew inches high. In. some
sections of Orangebarg and adjacent counties
fertilizara are being largely used. Peruvian
guano still holds the front rankj Rhodes' phos?
phate, furnished by Messrs. B. S. Rhett ? Son,
seems to be the best liked of the Northern
manipulations, and the Wando of tho ho no
prepared phosphates. I find that the farmors
are very generally experimenting- with tho va?
rious guanos and phosphates this year, and
wah a good season their relative merits will
soon be decided.
Toa may form 'some idea of tho damage a

TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
In your article published in the issue of the
8th May, headed "Gold for Cotton," an impor?
tant error appears, which I will be obliged if
you will correct. The sentence, as it appears,
is as follows : "The bonds are a swindle (at
least the one billion six hundred millions, pay?
able m the currency of the UnUea States, which
are to be capitalized into specio paying banks. ")
Here the word "'banks" ought tobe "bonds,**
and the sentence will read thus-"The bonds
are a swindle, (at least the one billion six hun?
dred m liions payable in the currency of the
United States, which are to be capitalized into
specie paying bonds.")
When I say that tn es o bonds, payable by the
act creating them, m the currency of the Uni?
ted States will be converted into specie paying
bonds 1 referred especially io the bia introduced
luto the Senate of the United States by Senator
Suerman in behalt of tho Committee on Fi?
nance in the Sonate, in which tins very thing

THE BLUE RIDGE BAILROAD.
Thc Adran ta gp? of the Route hy Knox?
ville and.ltaban Gap.
The following report made by a special com?
mittee of the Board of Directors of the Georgia
Badroad and unanimously adopted, shows the
superior advantages of the Blue Ridge route to
connect Cincinnati and the West with the sea?
. The committee to whom was referred the
consideration of the projected railroad from
Athens to the Babun Gap, submit the follow?
The present condition and prospects of the j
Blue Ridge Railroad projected trom Au dor sou,
South Carolina, to Knoxville, Tennessee, pass
iog throne ti the Kaban Gap, have at the out?
set of their investigations claimed the atten?
tion of your committee. From a recent re pott
of J. U. Harrison, E^., President ot the road,
the following facts have been collected:
The entire length of the proposed road,
known as the Blue ll ul go Railroad, from An?
derson to Knoxville, is tM miles; the estimated
cost of construction, $7,575 000, of winch
amount there has been expended $3 287 0J0.
which has been absorbed in the construction
of eighteen miles east from Knoxville to Marye
v.lie, the completion ot the road from Ander?
son to Walhalla, a distance of thirty-three
miles, and the heavy grading, tunnelling and
masonry between Walhalla and Clayton, a dis?
tance of thirty one miles. Tho expenditure of
so large an amount upon comparatively so short
a line of the road is explained by the fad that
between Walhalla and Clayton the passage of
the Bine Ridge is achieved and all engineering
ruffioolties overcome,- though the summit is
a tuned at che Gap, two and three-quarter
miles west of Clayton. Some conception of the
magnitude of the work upon this section may
bs formed from the statement that the esti?
mated cost ol the road in Georgia and south
Carolina, which is seventy miles, and thirty
per cent, of the distance to Knoxville, will, it
is estimated, cost 58 per cent, of the whole
Upon that portion of the lino west of Clayton
to Knoxville, in which we are more directly in?
terested, nothing as yet has been accomplish?
ed-same as before stated-tho completion of
the eighteen miles from Knoxville to Morye
ville. leaving a distance of 115 miles, upon
whioh nothing has been accomplished; thirty
seven miles of this distance, however, to the
North Carolina hue, it is behoved, will be pro?
vided for by the State of Tennessee, as she has,
within the past two years, appropriated $250,
009 to that purpose, leaving a distance of sev?
enty-eight miles m North Carolina and Geor?
gia to be provided for.
From Knoxville west, the Kentucky and Ten?
nessee Railroad is now in partial operation,
and will, it is believed, be completed a', an
early day to Dan viii ?, in Kentucky, from which
point railroads are now la operation to Coving?
ton, on the Ohio River, opposite to Cincinnati.
In the present deranged condition of the
country, it is impossible to anticipate anything
with certainty, much less the completion of a
work of such maguitude as this, involving as
it does the expendiere of millions of dollars;
bul the efforts now beieg made by the o meera
of the road an l the authorities of the State >f I
South* Carolina, the vital importance of its com?
pletion to the raihoad system of that State,
the entire sacrifice of the millions already ox*
pended if the road is not completed, the in?
significance of the debt of tb2 como my (less
than $250,000.) but above all the important
fact that it la the nearest and cheapest trans
mountain connectiou botween the great c.t?os
of the Northwest and the Atlantic seaboard
that has yet been projected, forbids tho appre?
hension of its failure. Your committee, then,
assuming that the wor.( will go forward, und
that at no distant day it will bo completed, next j
directed their inquiries to the project more di- j
rectly in vicvr, v z : Tho propone 1 load Hum
Allions to the Raba 11 Gap, aud bavo to report,
considering the topography of tho country,
from the beat information to bo obtained, that
it is in the main remarkably favorable for tho
construction of a road.
From within a few milos of A hens an eleva?
ted platean or ridge dividing the waters ot tho
Oconeo a d Broad. B vera stretches north,
upon wbioh it is believed a road may be con?
structed without crossing a stream, and at no
great cost for grabing. passing by or near
Harmony Grove to Poplar Springs, a distanco
ot about thirty-seven miles. At this point tho
spurs of the mountains ate encountered, and a
detour to tne east from the almost direct lino
hitherto pursued becomes necessary, passing
near the base of a range of hills known as Chat- j
tahooohee or Currahee Bidge and a few milos
east ot the village of Clai kesville. The lalla
lah River is reached a distance of about forty I
m nes from Pop ar Springs, where the first and I
only stream involving any material cost for
: bridging and masonry is enoountered ; for the
remainder of the distance to Clayton about j
twelve miles, the route would pais through
stretches of valleys and along the slopes ol tbe I
h?ls to the gap at the head of Stiooah Cieek,
thence to Clayton, or to the Rabnn Gap, as
may be found most desirable, a distance from
Athens estimated lo be about ninety miles.
The region of coan try which woald be pene?
trated by the road is proverbial for its salubri?
ous climate and romantic scenery, and pos?
sesses unrivalled water power, is well adapted
to the production of the cereals, abounds in
mineral wealth and needs oidy access i bib ty to
invoke skill, industry and capital to awaken it
to new life and development.
The importance of this connection as a
feeder to your road, your committee respectful?
ly saggest, can scarcely be over estimated; to
form some estimate of the increase of traffic
likely to be thrown Over it, and the danger of
losing a large portion of that, whio ? it now
possesses if it is not built, lt is only necessary
to compare the distances between Cincinnati
and Augusta via Knoxville, Rabun Gap and
Athens as compared with the route via Dalton
and Atlanta or Nashville and Chatanooga.
Fiom Knoxville to Augusta via Athens, it is
about 830 miles; via Dalton and Atlanta, it is
about 880 miles -a dilfereuce of near 50 miles
m favor of the former.
From Cincinnati to Angosta, via Knoxville
and Atlanta, is 670 milos; via Nashville and
Chattanooga it is 838 miles; via Athens, it is
625 miles, making a difference in favor ot the
routo via Athens, as compared with the former
route ss before stated of near 50 miles, and of
the latter of 211 miles.
By a calculation of distances of the rontes
men ioned, it will appear that a large portion
ot the State will be as much interested as your
road of the City of Augusta in the proposed
road. Especially ia this ti ne cf the interior ai
yon progress noon the hoe of your road, ortho
route to Rabun Gap, where the difference in I
tbe distance fr the transportation ot Western
products would be lessened by the proposed
connection hundreds of miles.
Your committee, in this connection, would
call your attention to the fact that we cannot
rest supinely upon the supposition that if this
connec ion is not made, we will still retain our
present traffic from the West over our main
line from Atlanta 10 Augusta, for upon the
com pletiou of the Blue Ridge Road, it will pass
by tba nearer and more direct routo over tho
Caro.ma roads to Charleston.
Your committee have not overlooked the fact
that even if the proposed road ia built, it will
will be somewhat nearer from Cincinnati, via
Knoxville. Rabun Gap and Anderson to Charles
ion, iban between thc same pointe via Athen..
Tho distance by the former route being 743
miles, and by tbe latter about 763 miles, mak?
ing a difference say ol 20 miles 111 favor of the
Inrmer route. Ibov would remark, however,
in this connection, that if thc road from Au?
gusta to Tort lt'yal is built, the difference
would then be sligutly iu favor of tuc route by
Athens to tho seaboard, over that by the Caro?
lina Roads to Cbirloston. If, however, the
Port Royul Rona is not built, tuero ai e conside?
rations, in the op mon ot y. ur committee,
wnich wo.dd moro than counterbalance tho
slight d fferencos in the leuglh of thu two lines
winch they beg to suggest.
As hue been stated iu ano'hor connection,
the passage of tho Blue Ridge is achieved 0 et
of Clayton; as a necessary consequence, the
grados upon that part of the hue will be very
heavy, being, upon some sections, us uiuoh au
seveu-y feet to the mile; whereas, upon the
projected hue frc m Athens to Babun (nip it is
believed that 1 he grados upou no part of tho
line will be heavier than that upon tie line of
the Georgia Railroad. Tho effect ot this differ?
ence in grade, which is to iinpor.uut m the |
woikiug of ali i ai I roads, and tho cost or freight?
age, is too obvmus to need to be stated.
Again, the shipper by be route to Augusta
has the advantage over tiie shipper to Charlos
I ton direct, not oniy ot that market but. of two
others besides. He bas the favorite inland
m irk t of Augusta and tho port ot Savannah
?lifo. That tins consideration alone will .arge
K c mrol the desliuation of products seeking a
m ak"t, especially il there oe capital to control,
iheri|c?njbe no queet?->n-* nor should we.over
look, in thia connection, the important bearing
of this route npon the traffic that mnst pass
over it to the growing City of Savannah, lt
will be her nearest route to the great cities of
the NotttaweBt-." Iq fine, if this road is built,
we shall present almost an air line route (over
one hundred and fifteen miles of our present
road) from Savannah and Ancustain an almost
doe northwes ardly direction to the Ohio River,
where we are placed tu connection by rail with
St. Louis by existing roads or roads in contem?
A line like this, passing as it will over the
most direct practicable route toits termini, de?
veloping a large extent of country DOW shut
out from trade and commerce, and sharing the
carrying trade between two geog!aphical divis?
ions of the continent, can but be remunerative
and need fear no competition.
Your committee, therefore, in view of these
considerations, recommend that BO soon as
operations aro resumed on the Blue Ridge
road, that steps be taken to have a survey
made of the proposed road from Athens to
Rabun Oap; that the Central Railroad be re?
quested to aid in the project, and that this
company co-operate with all parties interested
in any other steps that may be deemed advis?
able to secare the accomplishment of the en?
terprise. Respectfully submitted,
? 8. THOMAS.

Although up to this period of tho season tho
Eeople who ride or drive in the Row have not
eeo distracted by any specially sensational
ponies under the direction of anonymous
ladies, questionable broughams and horse
breakers have even thoa early appeared in
Hyde Park in excess of tbo number with which
the assemblage is usually enlivened. But it is
not so much of this circumstance, however,
that w - now write. InttseltiiiB bad enough,
bnt it is difficult to see how such people could
be kept out of the parks. There is a signifi?
cance, however, m another sooial aspect of the
matter which is more important. Until very
recently there was no suoh thing as a demi?
monde in London, using the term in its imper*
feet meaning, as understood here. The wretch?
ed women went down rapidly from one stage
to another without being encouraged or
systematized sufficiently to form a rogular set
-having establishments and holding recep?
tions such as distinguish a corresponding class
in Paris. But within a very brief period-not
much more than a year, perhaps-there has
been a change amoog us. Previous to that
time, indeed, moralists in the press complain?
ed of the frank terms which young, mea or
fashion held with such women in places of
public resort. This familiarity is now so much
on the increase (as anyone who watches what
goes ob in the Ladies' Side can pei eui ve) that
it calla for Borne remonstrance. Formerly As?
pasia and her associates were passed with a
cod, or only spoken to by meu who were indif?
ferent to no+ice, became they were themselves
unknown, or, at any rate, it they recognized
auch ?omen they were cautious whore it
was done. At present the yellow-ohignoned
denizens of St. John's Wood and Pimlico
draw up their carriages or horses, dose to
the rails, and are chatted with as candidly ai
it they had oome from some doveoot in the
country watched over by a virtuous mother.
The audacity of these reunion i is unprecedent?
ed. A notice seems to prevail that tho loose
women of our day axe undistinguishable from
the woman of virtue. The superstition is pre?
posterous. In the park, at least, them is no
difficulty in distinguishing tho carriage that
anybody may pay for or in gncssiue tho occu?
pation of thc dashing equestrienne who salutes
half a dozon men at once with her whip, or
with a wink, and who somei irnos vanes tho mo?
notony ot a sale seat by holding her hands be?
hind ber baok while gracefully swerving over to
listen to the compliments of a walking ad?
mirer. Of .XMlr-ai- tito moo who ta.lk with
thoso women of tho highway are perfectly
aware of what they are about, and a London
lady tempered in the atmosphere ot oae or
two seasons learns discretion enough not to
ask relevant questions when she meets in a
ball-room the same gentleman she hos observ?
ed tete-a-tete with Aspasia m the Row. If things
go on, however, os they seem liki-ly to, this
sort of reserve will be tested with nupsual
severity in the m> ut hs of slay and June. The
manner in which what again, for want or a
moro convenient phrase, ?e must call the
demi-monde class bas been freshly developed
among us is not unknown. There are certain
perfumers' shops at the West-end notorious
tor enterprises not immediately con ected
wita bloom for the lips ari glitter for the
oyes. It was from one of these establish?
ments that a well-known photograph and
i ts original were, so to speak, floated. Here
the loungers tarn in. and are invited to balls,
for which cards are given them. Thence spring
intimacies of which we say no more than that
the acknowledgment of them should be sos
pended before virtuous women in the Park.
The ladies have a remedy in then* hands which
they deliberately abandon when they pretend
blindness to what ia as obvious as the Duke's
statue at the corner. And, of coarse, if they
choose to encourage the opeo and flagrant dis?
respect to which they are treated there is no
help for them.-PtiU Mall Gazette.
AN EVENTFUL H 18 TORT- CAREER OF
A FEMALE GUERILLA,
Nearly every pleasant day pedestrians on oar
principal aveuuos pass a dark-eyed brunette,
of medium size, a plump figure, and richly
dressed. " In the early spring ot 1861. Sne Kite
radge a lovely girl, just returned from board?
ing school, lived upon her father's plantation
m one of the rural distncts of Eeo tucky, that
bungin a balance, uncertain whether to risk
her fate wi,h the new "Coofeder icy, " or hang
back. Sue was a frequent visitor at the ad?
joining plantation of Mr. Mundy, an old gen?
tleman who-o wife and son, a young mau, com
posed a happy tam ly.
One day a company of Union cavalry rode
down upon the place, plundered the premises,
earned off the valuables, barned the residence,
and finally slaughtered tbe parents who were
defending their own fireside, laying waste the
country in their track, and leaving young
Mundy and Sue orphans indeed. Yoong tl undy
was at last aroused, and while being carried off
a prisoner no word escaped bis hps but ''Sae."
When asked his name he repeated, "Sue,"
probably the effects of a disordered bram. His
linen being examined, the indelible name of
"Mundy" was found, and ever after he was
known as "Sue Mundy," the constant terror
of Union citizens and soldiers in that section.
After being released on parole, he immedi?
ately returned and interred the charred re?
mains of his own parents, as well as the body
of Mr. E. Taking a solemn and fearful oath
of vengeance, and accompan ed by Sue, who
was now withont home or friends ia this wild
world, he started for a neighboring camp of
bushwhackers or guerilla?, where he was re?
ceived with open arms, and was soon promoted
to the office of commander of the force, while
Sue, disguised and passing by the name of
"Eit," an abbreviation of Kiteradge, proved
invaluable as a spy, a fearless rider, and of un?
doubted bravery. Eit, af. er serving nearly
two years as a spy and general planner for the
band, found her health foiling. Disguised and
armed with the highest testimonials, the suc?
ceeded in securing aposiiion on the staff of
General Cleburne, the hardest figuting irish?
man in the rebel army.
This position sho held, doing her duly like a
mau, until the battle ol Atnui a, Ja y 1!3 1864,
m whn h Pat Cleburne was ki len. Bumming
to ber youthful hero aud his banu she aga.n
revelledin tho carnival ot Datai, an 1 though
her evil spirit was wi ling, tuc fl sh as w<-ak,
and Kit was gain transferred io duly at AU
dcraonville. Piisonera shu have shared the
hospitalities of that celebrated c inp will per?
haps remembrr a short. n:out .. nd muscular
voting lieutenant, with fl.iahm.' bl.?keyve, a
face os smooth as a ma don's, and cruel as
thouga a fiend incarnate; arked .witina. This
was Sue Kiteradge. the ulumbie young board?
ing school miss, the cheerful companion, tho
once wealtlivheiress, thu'n-autii'il maiden and
firm friend ot young Mundy wno-e lite to her
was dearer than her own. Sue Muudv and a part
of his band were captured und med by a court
martial. Kit was present durinc tho whole
trial, and used her greatest influouco bnt of no
avail. Sue Muudv waa coavicUd and hung at
Lcuisville. Ky., in* March, 1865. The flowing
hair still hang about his snowden;, aud when
his youthful coi ose was taken dowu and laid
away in Ins narrow bed the bi< eduig and
broken heart ot Sue Kuer.nlgo was buried with
it; and now, a waudoter o.i ibo lac.'of the

H. Powell Cooke and F. 0. s ie trunk, Esqs.,
were duly examined last week by order of nia
Honor R. B. Carpenter, Jndge presiding, and
licensed to practice in tbe law and probate
comts of this State.
Sparta nb urg,
Tbe Gazette nonces numerous i approvements
going on in tbe Town of Spartanburg.
There was a match gamo, between tho Pio?
neer and Wofford Star Base Ball Clubs, of
Wofford College, on the 8th instant, which
resulted in a victory for tho latter.
The Winnsboro' News save: "From every por?
tion of our district we hear of the serious
damage done to the crops, especially colton,
by the late heavy hail storm and the cold wind
that hrs followed it. Some of our farmers tell
us that, their entire cotton crop is killed out?
right, others say th it at least half of theirs has
been killed, while the other half is so badly
damaged that it will not be worth anything."
Judge Thomas gives notice that the June
term of court, for Lancaster, will not be held.
Tho Ledger Bays : "We are sorry to hear
most unfavorable reports as regards the pros?
pect of the cotton crop in this county. The
recent cold weather, it is said, has almost an?
nihilated the plant in some sections. In
some few instances planters are ploughing up
and replanting. It is not, however, loo late to
The Lanrensvillo Herald says: "On the night
of the 5th instant a great rain fell throughout
the district, acco upa ni ed with hail, washing
the lands and doing considerable damage to
cotton just coming up and corn. Tbeso crops
ore very backward and the stand invariably
complained of as bid. The weather remains
cool, and up to the morning of the 9th we hear
reports of slight frost. Oats and wueat look
healthy and promising, but the surface seed?
ed is considered comparativ-ly narrow."
General James Chesnut will address the
DeKalb Literary Society, at the Camden Town
Hall, on Wednesday evening next.
The Camden Independent Fire Company has
elected the following gentlemen officers for the
ensuing year : J. R. Goodale, Captain; W. il.
Billings, Lieutenant; B. T. Lewis, First Direct?
or; B. D. Polk, Second Director; T. A. Mooro,
Third Direotor: A. J. Freitag, Fourth Director;
J. A. Bchrock, Secretary; George Crosby,
Treasurer; J. X. Nettles and J. McSmyrl, Ax
The UuionviUe Times says: "We had for a
few days, at the dose of last week, an extraor?
dinary spell of cold weather for May. Vegeta?
tion waa injured by it. and particularly cotton.
We hear lrom all sides gloomy accounts of the
cotton. It was so muoh injured by the frosts
and cool nigh ta of last week, that much of it
as to be re-planted. One planter informed us
that on his place, and on several others in his
neighborhood, two-thirds of the stands were
destroyed. We have also inquired particularly
of the proportion of cotton planted to corn;
and we have ascer.ained that the proportion
is about the same as in former years."
The Winyah Fire Company celebrated their
twentieth anniversary ou Tuesday last by an
entertainment, in the course of which marked
compliments vere besiowed upon Charleston
and the "Stonewall's.".
The Times says: " We continuo to have
seasonable weather, with 'ooi refreshing show?
ers CCJBI?UBIIV, which aro quito acceptable o
tbe growing crops. Tho nee plan era gene
ially complain of the unusual number of May
birds that have arrived olo bed in the garb of
spring, and disappear as suddenly to return at
harvest nmj with a dress under the appella?
tion of rico birds."
Colonel Beti Allston addressed I lip Wi nyah
indigo Society on tbe 7th instant. His subject
was ducat ion. Ho drew a voty faithful and
comet, picture of Nortnern and southern chir
acteristirs. eaoh from their respective stand?
points, the evils as well as the beuefis con?
ferred by tree and slave labor, and very happi?
ly illustrated how, thron.'h the clouds nf ad?
versity, we shoult rise to the duty of the hour,
and profit by the experience ol the past.
The Press says : "During the past week we
have had heavy iains and some hail, and tb
nights have been too cool for the cotton an .
wheat. Some of our planters have ploughed
up their cotton and planted in corn/'
The following are the two tickets to be vo?
ted for, at the election to be held in Abbeville
on the 25th inst. :
Conservative ticket-For Senator, James 8.
Cothran; County Commissioners, Ed wai d West?
field, Wm. H. Taggart; Coroner, J. A. MoCord.
Radical ticket - For the Senate, L. L. Gnffin;
County Commissioners, A. P. Conner and L.
P. Gurun; Coroner, Robert Jones.
A Greenwood correspondent of the Abbeville
Press writes: "ihe cool weather still contin?
ues, and is telling fearfully on the crops of
corn and cotton. The corn is very small and
the stands bad. Many have been compelled to
plant over entire. There is yet time sufficient
to make an abundance of this article. The
farmers should bend their energies to this
point, and regard the reverses they have suf?
fered in their first efforts as a providential
warning. It will soon be too late if they delay
longer. The cotton plant is still dying at a
rapid rate. Some have begun to plant over to
the extent of then* seed; bnt this is quite lim?
ited. There is only a small remnant of seed
left in the country; hence the lands cannot be
planted again. Tt the decay of the plant con?
tinues for another week at its present rate,
there will be no fields of cotton-only here and
there a stalk."
Daring the extra term of court, last week,
Mr. J. R. Scott was admitted to practice as an
attorney, solicitor and counsellor in the Circuit
and Probate Courts of this State.
Tbe Mountaineer says: "The coal and on
sea tonable weather of the past month bas had
a damaging influence on the cotton m this
section. So serious has been the effeot, that
many of our planters have had to plough up
their entire crop and plant again."
Jndge Orr cleared the Issue docket at the
extra term of the Greenville Court of five
hundred cases during the last week. The first
few cases were stoutly litigated, when the ju?
ries, alter argument, established the rule of
g iving one-ha f the debt and interest; when
tl o pleas were withdrawn by consent and the
docket rapidly cleared.
A heavy bail s'orm passed over Greenville
District on Wednesday evening, inflicting se?
rious injury on the tender grow h of garden
vegetables. Home of the stones were as large
as pigeons' eggs. The wheat shows some signs
of the heavy pelting it received, and the orop
will no doubt be slightly shortened iu conse?
quence. During the storm, a young man, a
son of Mrs Marah Shockley, living about eight
or nine mil -s from Greenville Courthouse, was
killed by a falling building. He was asleep at
the time tbe building was blown down, and tbe
timber tailing on bim, broke bis back, arm and
neck. His sister was also injured, but not se?
riously, i'be outbuildings of Mrs. Kennemur
and James Wynn wore blown down, trees up?
rooted aud fences levelled.
A publie meeting of ibe citizens of Green?
ville was held in the courthouse on Tuesday
last to consider the question of tbe Au Line
Railroad enterprise. J. H. Goodwin. Esq.,
