Penison, Texas. ) Wodnosday, March 2G, '73. ) Epitoii IIekalu: I loft your city yostcrday, ox pooling that I would reach St. Lou is to-night; or nt farthost in tho morning, but our expectations will never bo realized, so long as wo nro forced to roly upon tho contingon cios of tho Contrnl rond. If tho pa trons of tho rond could bo sagacious enough to mako their calculations lor a cold, rough nnd hard time, nnd always oxpect to bo behind time, thon indood but low disappoint ments would mult. Hut travelers nro always hopoful nnd sanguine, and nro always disappointed when they reach Donison. I reached this placo last night about 10 o'clock ' (only about throo hour's travel from Dallas to connect with tho M. K. Si T. road,) und was do lectated with tho numerous com plaints on all sides jibout tho notion of tho Contral road in rofusing to recoivo froight from tho M. K.& T. road. It scorns that tho Central owns somo land a fow miles from hero which thoy stylo "Rod Ilivor City," nnd as they ore anxious to mako something out of tho lots which thoy nro now offorin"' for salo, thoy doclino to connoctwith the M. K. & T. at any othor point limn their own stamping ground. It it 'rumored horo nnd boliovcd, that it is n speculative motivo which actuates.3th. country to porstst in ontailing the inconveniences upon thoirtriondB which rosults from their obstinacy. Tho Central ro- fuHos positively to allow u car of tho M. Iv. & T. R. R. Co. to run up- on thoir track, or to recoivo froight frbra them nt any point excopt Red River City thoir p nper town. litis placo is filled with wagons laden with froight from tho depot of tho M. Iv. & T It. It., which goes to provo that tho people are not en tirely dependont upon I ho Contral for their transportation. Upon my arrival hero last night, had the pleasure of meeting our mutual friend, Mr. Goslin, of tho well known houso of Goslin & Co., of your city. Ho has bcon horo sovernl dnys procuring transporta tion from this placo to Dallas for the mammoth stock of furniture holms had delayed at this point for near ly thrco weeks. Ho will soon opon out in Dallas tho largest and best stock of furnituro nnd quoonsware over boforo brought to Northern Toxns. I leave this P. M. for St. Louis, being nownt tho terminus of tho Contral, I expeot to reach St. Louis on timo. Moro nnon. . ALEX. P. S. I think tho best thing your merchants can do, is to havo thoir goods shipped to this point, and from hero to Dallas, havo them transported by wagon, until you can build your road from Spring. Sold. This would holp your causo with the Central road in tho fu ture. At presont tho Contral soems determined to throw every obsta. clo in tho way to prevent goods from boing shipped from this ond of tho M. K. & T. road: Another Rival. -C. II. Jenkins, in company with Geo. W. Laws, Esq.," andCapt. Hawkins, of tho T. & P. road, went out yesterday to lay off the first depot oast of Dal las in tho vicinity of Scyono. They havo not learnod tho name of this now city, but as there is n Brook lyn on tho other sido of East Fork, wo suggest that it bo called Now York. Of course this town in com mon with Ft. TVorth, and nil tho othor prospectivo cities on tho lino of the Texas & Pnci fic road will ex pect to bo u great city, and consid er Dallas its spocial enemy. But 187.3. wo will novortholess retain a kind fooling for tho now city, as wohiivo always done for Ft. Worth. It is to our interest to havo our subur ban towns flourish. . Work on the Texas and Paoiflo Hail way. The Iron Ago makos tho follow ing statement of what has thus far been dono, and tho presont Condi tion of tho ontorprise : An official statement of tho chief engineer, dated February 25, dis clonus tho astonishing fact, that da ring tho month of January there was expended within tho State of Texas, tor grading, ties and hridg ing,?558,O0U; and duringtho month of February, SUiU.UOO. milking in all, over eleven hundred thousand dollars, within tho short spaco of iwu mulling, curing tno samo timo, orders have been given and contracts made, for ono hundred aiuiiiioiml miles ot iron to bo ship pea witbiu ninety days.

Hall, a youth of nineteen years, at tho hour nbovo inontionod, tho girl dying almost instantly. THE r-AUTICLARS . of this most, shocking affair nro as follows; Hall has, it is supposod, long loved Miss Shockley ,nnd press ed his suit with vigor, but sho did not Binilo upon him, nnd be saw with mortification nndchagrin that alio was not likely to look upon him with fayor. On tho day ho killed her, Miss Shockley loft tho district shoo), in which she was a pupil, in company with four small children. Sho had probably pro oooded ono hundred yards from the shool houso, when Hall mot her, carry ing a gun in his hand. Ho ad dressed somo languago to her nnd rcpliod in an amiable manner. Hall then asked her why sho had not nnswored his noto, written a few dnys beforo; sho replied that she could not, implying that sho was unwilling to do so. Ho told hor sho could havo answered his noto as woll as others shohad written to, and proceeded to say that he inton ed to shoot h cis thon and thoro. To this she replied, "Pshaw, Georgo Hall, you can't frighton me." THE FATAL SHOT Hall thon nsked tho children if Miss tShookley's brother Elijah, a youth of sixteen, was at the school, and upon recoiving a nogatlvo an swor, ordered a little girl who was standing by tho sido of his victim to move away, as ho intended to shoot Amelia Shockley, and thon doliberatoly raised his gun nnd fir ed at her. The load took effect just nndor tho ehouldor bladej and on- NO. 40. torcd her heiirt. Tho unfortunate girl exclaimed, "0 Lord," and fell to tho ground. FLH1UT OF THK MUHDEnER. Hor murdoror flod through tho' neighboring woods. Tho children notified thoir toachor. Mr. Isoac S.! Adams, of tho sad affair, nnd that' gontloman hastenod to tho scone of tho tragody, and found Miss Shockly lying upon hor sido in tho middle of tho rond. with blood pouring out of a terrible wound in her sido, and spirting from hor noBo and mouth as sho gasped in. TUB AGONY VV DEATH. " Ho raised hor head nnd asked her to speak to him. Sho tried to do so, but hor Btrongth was inado quato, nnd sho fell hack and oxpir ed without hnving boon nblo to nr. ticulato ft word. Tho body was convoyed to tho residonco of tho deceased's parents, nniif hv mui .. .jury of inquost summoned. Tho jury rendered a verdict f doalh at tho hands of Geo. V. Hall. THE I'EOl'LK IN SEARCH OK THE MUR DEREK, Sinco tho perpotration of this deed parties havo boon industrious ly Bcouring tho country in quest of tho murderer, but up to this timo ho is at largo, Tho friends of tho murdorered girl havo offered a To ward off 200 for his npprohonsion ami delivory to tho sheriff of Wi comico county. Itisroported that Hall was ninotoen years of ago, has long, straight, light hair, a sal low complexion, burley form, largo' gray eyes witli a bluo cast in them, nnd woro, whon last soon, a bluo, nnd gray mixod fustian Biiit and' slouched hat. v EXCITEMENT Or TUB PEOPLE. ' The pooplo aro vory indignant ovor this outrageous act, nnd ton chances to one ho will be lynchod if taken boforo the fovor hontof passion is cooled off. Tho murder ed girl was the daughter of Jus. II. Shockley, a most rosnoctable and worthy citizon. Hall is the son of Mr. Fhilio W. Hull, whn t also a worthy man. Both families arocrusnea witn griot ovor the aw ful tragody. . THE FUNERAL. Tho body of the murdorod girl was intorrod this morning atMO o'clock, nt the comotery of her fam ily, about 1000 people attonding. ' Evidence brought 16 light sinco tho murdor shows that Hall con -tcmnlatcd murdorinir hnr suunrnl days before ho accomplished his ' purposo, out wa.8 loiloct by tho presence of hcrbrothor in hiswnlka to and from tho sohool. The whole country is roused, and ho will prob ably ho captured within tho noxt twenty-four hours. : I'ROIIALLE SUICIDE OF TIALL. Sinco writinL' tho above. ititlli. genco has ronched horo that a man answoriiig to Hall's description was killod yesterday evening south of -Kingston station, by boing run ovor s bv the south bound train.

Ho ran to tho track and throw himself on his right sido on . tho track. Tho train passed ovor him. cuttinsr his head, both arms.' and both logs from the body. A black-mailer was brought to ilrnal grief by a courageous lady of this oliy th other day. He bad wrilteo her a letter threatening to expose her te publie abhor. ivuvr. nuiuu iQLLvi biiv vrioviv auuweu tu the polioo. At their advloe slitfappoiotedi an interview with the blaok-mailer, paid him the prioe demanded as the conJition of suppressing hi ntendaolous dander, and thon quietly gave him in charge to an officer who was in waiting for him. The told and rigorous conduat of a olergyman upen whom a woman attempted to levy black-mail, Ian summer, had the elfeot of erioualy injuring the business of trading on the fears of nervous people. The reoen t attempt, whioh was so neatly frustrated, . is the first on of the k ind whioh has late ly been heard of. We may now expeot another lull in the business of black-mailing ; and if, whenever a simitar attempt is made, a like oourage is displayed, the black mailer will find his oeoupatioo wholly gone. N. Y.
