SSavannah Valley Railroad.
An election) was held in the sever'al
township along the line of the Savan
nah Valley Railroad in Abbeville Coun
d ty last Saturdlay on the question of
making another subscripui m, aggrega
d ting $20,000, for the purpose of comi
pletlig the said Road. T1he following
n is the result ini the various townships:
it Lowndesville-199 yeas, 4 nays; Cal
n hotm-191 yeas. 45 nays; Magnolia
114 yeas, 23 nays; Blordeaux-100
yeas, 32 nays. This result insures the
3, completion of the Road from Lowndes
it ville to McCormack's. It now dlevolves
upon the townships interestedl In An
derson county to decide what we will
Y do. The friends of the enterprise are
d now more hopeful than ever before,
r. and If the townships in Anderson coun
ty bill only do their duty it will not be
many months before the tr'ains will be
*running through their sections. Every
r body should go to work in earnest now,
and not stop ntil the last rail has been
laid and the last spike driven on this
I) iuportant commercial highway.-An
