Chattanooga, Atlanta, King's Moun

final decisive meeting in Atlanta,
Ga., Tuesday, last week. They
finally determined to locate the
Southern Chautauqua at Monteagle
Springs, in Grundy County.
Monteagle Springs is on the top of
the Cumberland plateau, on the line
of the Tennessee Coal and Iron
Company's road, which intersects
the Nashville and Chattanooga Rail
road at Cowan, eighty-seven miles
from Nashville and sixty-four miles
from Chattanooga. The University
of the South is six miles distant atu
Fairmount Female College is only
half a mile away. At Cowan the
traveler takes the Mountain Hail
road, which ascends the mountain
rising 1,000 feet in about six miles
affording one of the grandest ant
most picturesque trips on the conti
nent. Iho hotel, which has 200
rooms, is 2,200 feet above the leve
of the sea, and on every side a
magnificent panorama of mountain
scenery is presented. The establish

In Mr. Alfred lumber's remarks on
Wednesday evening, to a few of our
neighbors, that gentleman stated
as explicitly as could be desired, that
the parties now interested in the
advancement of the colony were fully
determined to make a success of
the place, as far as they W'ere con
cerned, and to obtain that object no
pains or expense would be spared.
We are not surprised to hear that
Mr. lumber was pleased and some
what astonished at the advance
ment of our colonial life, compared
with other settlements in their salad
days, as it is now so common to hear
such remarks from those who do not
trust alone to rumor for their know
ledge of Rugby; but among the
many kind and bright words and
hopes, ideas and suggestions thrown
out by Mr. lumber, nothing vas
said of a railway to the Cincinnati
Southern, which idea is in the opinion
of the large majority of settlers
hero the first necessity towards
success. We cannot but think,
practical as Mr. Kimber is, that he
sees it is a big mistake our being so
far off the rail, and that in the
present day, with immense com
petitions, a railway to a new and
rising place is an inducement dwarf
in" nearly all other considerations.
