The Greenville National Union of the 12th inst. eaya: "The case of the State against Emory Kiker, charged with the murder of Lewis Bird, in 1S62, which was taken up-last Thursday, was closed by the jury returning a verdict of "not guilty."

Thousands of dollar are thus lost, and the destruc tion mentioned above, which ia the same in many other localities, will, we four, make pork scarce in this market. j The friends ef Mr. Maynard intend to I urge him upon Gen.

I The Union and American of Sunday says : .Late last evening we received hbe family of Capt.

The tuggyu oeen nrougnt out for tne use of some purpose, and little Bettie and another chiid were gleefully seated in it, awaiting iw ueparture. irom some cause the horse became frightened, ran away, and liettie was tnrown out, re' eelvieg fatal injuries. In this distressing affliction we deeply sympathize with the bereaved family, and tender them our hearty condolence in the fall of one so bright, so tender and so pure. The Turcumbla (Ala.)

A resolution tn regard to the Im provement of the Tennessee river, and praying tbe aid of Congress for that pur- J pose, passed the Tennessee Senate on ' Saturday and was transmitted to tbe i House, where, the Nashville Banner tbinks, it will certainly pass.

We have before now laid before our readers the plan of the contemplated In ternational Pacific it MI road, as outlined in a bill now nendincr In ConETe8s. There already exfits a railroed line from Toledo, on the Canada border, through Indianapolis to Vincennes, Indiana; and Qen. Buraside is building a continuation from Vincennea to Cairo. Connecting with this rc&d at Cairo, tho International Pacific road will pass through the south eastern corner of Missouri, through the cen ter of Arkansas and the most populous n.irt cf Texas, to Laraiio. on the Rio Grande, whence it continues, btfurciQagJ3 to the city of Mexico, and to the ricrt oTiso Hn Tllan on th Pacifle coast.

It cuts a large number or tee creat rivers ot tne continent. whose commerce will be tributary to it. It dce3 not puss through an undeveloped country, but through a territory already peopled sea givrng an annual rirodno tion cf vast wesdth and imnortanee. Cities, towns and villages will rapidly be fomidsd along its entire line. Other roads, running east and west npon a parallel of latitude, c.tn facilitate only the exchanges which Eastern commerce calls from the Western farmer but this line, -having its nortnern terminus on Lake Erie, in latitude 41, cuts all the in termediate parallels to latitude 21 on the Pacific. By such a road the inhabitants of the South readily reach the North ia summer, and those of the North as read ily reach tho South ia winter ; it opens the natural exchange of Northern pro ducts with those o. Southern gfowth, and the exchange of bullion from the mines of Mexico for the manufactures of the Western States, When built, it will be the great connecting chain, binding the South and the North and West to gether by the indissoluble bond of com mercial prosperity. It is satisfactory, therefore, to see that intelligent people in the Southern States are being aroused to the impor tance of this work to them. At a public meeting, held the other day in the city of Memphis, a committee was charged with the duty of inviting the attention or tne people or tne btates south of the Ohio and east of the Mississippi to the subject cf a Pacific railroad, and securing their co-operation in some plan which w.i! extend to the citizens of theee States the benefits of the enterprise. The com mittee includes prominent members of the business community at Memphis, who, on the 10th inst., made and pub lished a yery able report upon the subject. This demonstration of one of the greatest commercial cities cf the Missis sippi will no doubt bring a ready re sponse from every Southern State. The International road has the features to make it the great national 11ns, confer ring blessings alike on the North, the South and the est. That the South ern people, in their present prostrate con dition, should ask for help in the loan of the national credit, in building or com pleting those projected links which would unite tke entire railway system of the South with this great international thoroughfare, is natural and reasonable. To build the International railroad itself the credit of the Government in other werds, the lean of Government bonds is asked only to the amount of fourteen million dollars. Six or eight millions more would probably complete the three connecting links that is, from Mem phis, Vicksbiirg and New Orleans with tho main stem, making at most but a total grant in aid amounting to twenty or twenty-two millions. From a na tional point of view, the sum is insignifi cant in comparison with the great end to be attained. For the building of the Union snd the Central Pacific roads gov ernment gave some forty million acres of land and loaned its credit for sixty millions of money. To build the North ern Pacific a like land grant has been made and at least an equal amount of credit will have to bo loaned. Important as both these roads will be, and costing, as each of them will, double tho amount of tho boutbern road, for the grand jects or developing tne resources country, tne lauuatry or ninding tne iNortn an to- gather in the bonds of nros- perous intercourse i far Delow road to the the intrinsic natloc there is another which adds immensely to ortance of this nroJeer.

Tbe Mexican community will quickly feel the effect of this new element in her population, and the naiion will have a chance to rise from ber present fallen condition to a greatness worthy of her natural position, or, fulling In this, will be peacefully merged, through the votes of her own citizens, and to the satisfaction of the civUizsd world, in the Great Bjpublic. We capy the following from the Vicksburg Times : We know a couple of bright young fallows in the neighboring county of Claiborne, one eighteen and the other seventeen years ot age, who have set an example which tbe boys of our State would do well to emulate. Be ing too poor to continue their studies and enter college this year,, they did the next best thing in their power. At the com mencement of the senson they took off their coats and went to plowing, and throughout the year they have worked like young Trojans.

At the head of this rinsr John Conness isspahlarly supposed to stand. Identi fied" With him in various degrees, are Nvef Stewart and several ReDreeentx tives. JF large lobby or Cau.'ornians, Dermtftftetiily resident here, "assist" upon the " hands " of their ringleaders : and of their enterprises" are such matters as the Sutro Tunneir the appropriation of island and ocast Iahds to various vis ionary corporations, etc. it 13 not al ways stated mat me enterprises of this or any otner "riag" are necessarily dishonest, but the combination of legis lators and outsiders to carry through any series of operations by Government help is incipient plunder in itself. The floor of the Legislature gives every man an equal cnance in nis individual capacity, as a Senator or Representative. The present object of the Pacific Coast Ring is to get Mr. Conness or somebody else put at the bead of the Interior Depart ment, on the general theory that " the Pacific Coast will claim the Secretary of me interior." " What claim has the Pacific Coast to any Secretaryship V I said to a Califor- nlan, yesterday. " Oh I our people demand and expect it. They think it is their turn. We are interested in the Interior Department more man any nouy else, and know how to administer it." .Well, if you are interested, that might be an argument against giving it to you." The most preposterous claim Is the geographical one. It is a relic of the old Slate Sovereignty tyranny, which the war exploded, and assumes that the clod on which a man happens to perch is of consequence oeyona me quality of .his morals anil abilities. The next thing of note here is the Pa cific Railroad Ring, an association of members, senators, contractors, aad mi ners, -Kaa. expect to " omnibusUntte four or five schemes for reachUtfgfcfcpaeifio coast at various pfltaiygfpWfcji asso ciation subsidjwCujpgrahts cSds and tbe indorse The UnjiRPscluo Railroad, Eastern as repreaarited here last vear Wilkiatflfrof New York. In afl. ciatlon with four or five runners. strikers, and button-holers, who used the reporter's galleries to effect their purpo ses, and one or two cf the set being clerks of committees, had access to the floors of Congress. This, however, wa3 but a detachment of the Pacific Railroad lobby at large, which had numerous members in both Houses and on commit tee, particularly from the States of Ne braska, Minnesota, Massachusetts and Kansas. The officers of the various roads were almost constantly here. Money was used without stint. Argu ments were plentiful, and backed up by tickets, excursions, books, and what not, and so assured were the corporators of one railway that they voluntarily pushed their road in the direction of Santa Fe, hoping that Congress would find it in tne mud and haul it out for pity's sake. The inteUigent reader will discriminate between me Pacific Railway proper and these wildcat enterprises, which propose to reach Pugent Sound, the Gu'f of Cali fornia, and other places out of tbe reach of humanity, or the wishes of trade. These Pacific Railway jobs expect to make a combined raid upon Congress in Its winter 3esalon, soon to begin. The head of the opposition, to them Is Etihn Washburne. Tho Whisky Ring and Tobacco Ring you are acquainted with. The former is supposed to have its headquarters not far from San Francisco. The latter is the committee of an organization of tobacco makers, who can better afford to " treat " with a million rather than double it in taxes. The Now York Ring is the most high minded organization of all those which attempt to coerce or seduce legislation. It is made up of powerful bankers, ship pers and merchants, who Insist that tho Government, In lta policy, ahall express tbe Ideas of the commercial capital, con tracting or expanding its currency ac cording to the approved necessity of trade and exchange.
