WALHALLA, Monday, Sept. 20.-The Wall
Hotel seems to be the general headquarter
tbe engineer corps of the Bine Ridge Railr
and during the three days O?" my stay he
have beard little else than coesip abont gn
and tunnels, and approaches and strata,
gether with speculations as to the prob

The day approached, and eriswell & Co. m
no sign. The fate of Scott A Co. was trembl
in the balauce, when ibis Mr. Waterman ca
to thc rescue, und with one man set to w
upon the road with shovel and pick, and
saved thc contract from forfeiture. Look
the fact H ! Here is a contract made to cc
plete the road at $1,000,000 or $1,500,000 m
than tbe inst and legitimate price. Goveri
Scott, throughout, gives the successful c<
tractors advantages which tbeirfrivals did i
enjoy. And wben the contractors are abont

THE BURING ABOUT TO BEGIN.
This is one bard fact, and another is tua
here aro two locating parties of engineers ii
ho.ficld, and Major Steers, the sub-contracto
br th? Stump Hou.se, War Woman and Dick'

freers, who is an experienced contract ot am

eogtb of tunnelling to be done ie about a

THE ORIGINAL LINE.
I learn that the unwise conduct of the origi?
nal projectois of tbe road in limiting their en?
gineers toa grade of sixty feet to the mile has
been, and is, a great disadvantage to the com?
pany. In moro than one instance the line is
far longer than was necessary, and a creat deal
of useless work has be-n done; all in order
that the gradea might ba kept below tbe arbi?
trary standard of the pereooB who bad control
of the work. The new purveys which bave been
made lately enow that a far better linc than
the original line could have been selected, but,
as so much work is done, it is thougbt better
and cheaper to go on and finish** the line as it
DOW runs. One change in the route will be
made, saving the campar .y about $60,000.
THE ROAD A' IT BUNS.
Tho thirty-three miles of the Blue Ridge
Railroad, from Anderson to Walhalla, now in
operation, are in fair order. New ties are
wanted along tbe greeter part of tbe line, and
Borne ditching is neceeBary; but the road was
well built and is worked with judgment, econo?
my and a proper regard to the convenience of
the public. There is a daily tram each way,
and or? Fridays two tiains each way. Yester?
day a special train was run from Walhalla to
Anderson, where the Methodist Didtrict Con?
ference is in session. Tbis train took over a
large numtor of pastaencere from this village
and from Pendleton. Tho Superintendent of
the Blue Ridge Railroad, W. H. D. Gaillard,
Esq., is an able and a faithful guardian ot thc
interests of biB company, and neglects no op?
portunity of Bervingand acocmodating the peo?
ple along the line of road.
Walhalla itself is already about tbreo miles
long, with a population of 700; but the gaps in
the streets are filling up rapidly, and I think
that there are more new stores building in tbe
Tillage than you will find in some places of
ten times the size. The removal of the court?
house to this place has given it new life, and
property is steadily appreciating m value. The
lld courthouse building has been brought
aver from Pickena, and will do service hence?
forth as the jail. The new courthouse now
building will be a large and eubstantia 1 struc?
ture. It ia expected to be finiahe'd by Novem?
* THE CROPS.
In this county, Oconoe, it is hop<d that a
tialf crop of corn will be made. Thia is thc
best tbart the most sanguine expect. OF course,
there will be enough for the wants of the county
ir none be shipped to other places. There is not
a bushel to spare. The peach and fruit crops
generally were a failure, and the dronght
makes vegetables, milk and butter quite scarce.
This is no land of milk and honey in these
times, yet, on Saturday, some gentlemen came
over from Pendleton to hunt for butter and
Little is said or done, but Oconee may al
wavs be counted on for a thumping anti-Radi?
cal majority. StraDge to tay, there is a de?
cided opposition here to granting aoy more
money to the Blue Rid ce Railroad while Scott
and Pillsbury, representing the State and city
stock in the road, control tbe bug" concern.
It is argued that the $4,000,000 wbi:h the
Stato agreed to guarantee, will carry on the
work for eighteen months or two years. By
that time we shall have a decent and upright
Governor, and may grant a further guarantee,
if necessary, without running the danger of
having to-pay au official commission of ten or
twenty per cent. There is no opposition to
the ro id, but there is an indisposition to allow
Scott to handle or control any more
of the public funds. Walhalla has, in my
opinion, hit the nail on th? bead. The road
has already a guarantee of $4,000,000. When
that is spent, and well spent, it will be time
enough to talk abont a guarantee of $5,000,000
OUT OF DOOB8.
The scenery here is very beautiful, and there
atc not many finer views in the State than is
had from thc mount of the famous Stump House
Tunnel. The air is fresh, but in the middle
of the day the heat is as great as in dear old
Charleston. Senator Bicmann, an active and
a public spirited man, is the life of the village,
and is never found wanting when the purse
strings are to be loosened for the good ot tho

JAMES' TWIN Corro?.-An Alabama paper
thus describes this new species of cotton :
'.This variety of cotton, which is to give fame
and fortune to its discoverer, if it shall stand
the test of successful experiment, has bolls
considerably laiger than ordinary cotton, and
a staple longer than the Peeler. "One striking
peculiarity ot this variety coneiets in the fact
that the stalks have no limbs. The cotton
breaks cut in clusters from tho stalk, and
sometimes there are from seven to ten bolls in
one cluster. Mr. James is confident that he
can gather four bales from one acre ot this cot

thirteen rows planted; but from these he in?

A SbaDphao letter says:
The Chinese merchant is tbe complete epi?
tome of all tbat is close, sbarp, and crafty in
trade. In deceptions, in all manner of lying,
and in tricks t f every sort to get much money
for articles of little value, he is a perfect master.
He has no conscience and no sort of shame
about him. He will one clay bring you some
cniro, which he assures jon is of the very
oldest and rarest sort to be found in the
market. Perhaps it is a vase-and for it he
asks in consideration of its age, beauty, and
rarity, the modest sum of $50. You offer him
$3. He throws np his hands io disgust, says
"the reverend and honorable gentleman is cer?
tainly in jest," intimates that be feels deeply
offended that you could consider bim guilty of
such a piece of meanness as to try to sell you
for $50 an article worth only $3; and with an air
of sadness which almost briners tears to your
eyes, and canses you to be ashamed of yourself,
he tans himself a little, says, "Well I go off,"
ties up his precious treasure, goes to the door,
turns about, and says he don't want to make
any nnney to-day, and so you may have it tor
$49. If it be your first bargain with the nati .o
you will probably take it, but if you have, had
a little experience you will say, "No, I will give
$3." He darts off in disgust, says he will cer?
tainly never come back, abuts the door alter
him, but opens it again to say tbat you can
have thc article for $45. You say "NJ"-and
now he begins to come down rapidly, until, at
last, after many words and several pretended
departures, be sells yon the article for, proba?
bly, $5. The next day the same honest trades?
man cornea again with "one more of the same
sort," and says to yon that the one be sold you
yesterday wae but second rate, and so he sold
it to you for a small sum, but thia one is really
the very best to be had, and so for thia he
must h?ve $55, and he won't really take any
less, and if you don't want to give so much say
so at once and let that be the end of it. Atter
erecisely the same kind of haggling as tbe day
efore, you get this oui in for about $3. Then

MW A CARD-SOUTHERN LIFE INSUR?
ANCE COMPANY, ATLANTA DEPARTMENT.
To the Peoph of South Carolina:
The above Company was organ zed in 18G6, in
consequence of the wholesale forfeiture of Southern
policies by Northern companies. The unparalleled
success of the enterprise has forced several of these
companies to restore their Southern policies, from
the fact that they could not operate in our midst
without the appearance of honesty.
We keep all our money at home to buildup our
Impoverished country-every dollar of premium
being safely invested in the State from which lt is de?
rived. The institution is purely Southern, and hence
shou'd appeal with great force to the patriotism and
and sympathy of every Southern heart.
'Tis not our purpose to make war on other com?
panies, but to exhibit the special advantages offered
by this purely Southern Company-founded on
patrioUim and solid wealth. Its ratio of assets to
liabilities-the true test of a company's strength-is
second to none on this continent, being nearly $300
Whenever and wherever we have presented the
claims of this Company, it has not only enlisted the
sympathies of our people, but has also secured their
hearty co-operation. We have secured 600 policies
in South Carolina since the 10th of February. We
number smong onr Directors General Wade Hamp?
ton and Colonel Wm. Johnston, gentlemen well
known to every citizen of South Carolina. We ap?
peal personally to the people of couth Carolina to
assist in pushing forward this deservedly popular
Southern institution. J. H. MILLER,

MW KEEP THE BODY IN ?UOD REPAIR.
It is much easier to keep the ey-tem in good condi?
tion than to restore it to that condition when chat?
tered by d-.sease. The "Bouse of Life," like other
houses, should bo prompt, y propped up and sus?
tained whenever it shows any sign of giving way.
The first t-ymptoms ol physicil debility should be
taken as a hint that a stimulant is required, T.he
next question i?, "what shall the stimu'ant be?"
A wholesome vegetable tonic, thc stimulating
properties of which arc modified by the Juices and
extracts of anti-febrile and laxative roats and herbs
something whi:b will regulate, soothe and purify,
as well as invigorate-ls the medicine required by
thc debilitated. There are many preparations which
are chimed to be of this de-cription, but BOSTET
TER'.* STOMACH BITTERS, the great vegetable
preventive and restorative, that has won its way to
the confidence of the public and the medical profes?
sion, by a quarter of a century of uuvarying success,
stands pre-eminent ame nj them all. To expatiate
on its popularity would be to repeat a twice-toll
tale. It is only necessary to L-onsult the record* of
the United States Reveau? Department to learn that
its consumption ts greater than that of any other
proprietary remedy of either native or foreign
As a means of sustaining the health aad etrenglh
under a fiery temperature, the BITTERS have a
paramount claim to consideration. It has the effect
of f. nil ring and bracing thc nervous and muscular
systems against the ordinary consequences of sud?
den and violent changes cf temperature, and is,
therefore, peculiarly useful at this season, when hot
sunshine by day, and ice-cold d-:ws by night, alter?
nately heat and chill the blood of those who are ex
posed to them.
HOSTEITfcR'S STOMACH BITTERS are cold in
bottles only. To avoid being deceived by counter?
feits, see that the name of the article is o a the label,
and embossed on thc iilaes of the bottles, and our
revenue stamp over the cork.
