The Railroad Through RrniERFoitn.
Our, Rutherford friends are anxiously
hopeful that the beginning' of work
near ' Forest City, on the Gaffney. City,
Marion: and Virginia- Railroad, which
passes through ihe centre of Rutherford,
McDowell" and " Mitchell counties, will
not end until the road "is completed.
The Rutherford- correspondent of the
Shelby New Era gives the following grat
ifjiag information: - '-
f Sufllcient money baft been subscribed
already tot furnish the means necessary
for the construction of the road. Besides
the subscription of Rutherford, Mitchell
county has subscribed $100,000 and Mc
Dowell $50,000.' - Georgetown county,
S. C, has voted $100,000, GaffneyvCity
and vicinity about $30,000, and . other
counties will subscribe $5,000 per mile
through their 4eitory.?-i:M"f 1
b "If the -whole system of which this
road is a link, be completed, it will, be
one of the. most important lines m the
country. The northern terminus is 1n
tended to be Cranberry Iron Wojks, the
rjad passing through Marion. On the
south, Georgetown, . S. C, was proposed,
but Capt Ramsour, the chief engineer,
thiuks that Charleston would be a better
terminus with a-branch Georgetown.
A road is expected to be run from Cin
cinnati to Johnson City Depots Tenses

Works. It will be a Very" slight jiork to

Judge Gilmer reached here this morn
ing at 10 o'clock, having made 'the drive
from Webster in three liours tmd forty
eight minutes, the last five miles being
made in thirty-five minutes. Capt. J.
B. Young's famous pacer, Santa Claup,
bad the honor of expediting the Judic
iary and winning honors for; himself.
The Judiciary was ' not exhausted by
any means, . but t immediately entered
upon a new tpur of duty. The Court
was promptly '- organized, thji Grand
"J pry ably chargedr.wut Solicitor- Fergu-:
son-entered on' his work. An examina-j
tion-of his docket develops .af unusual
numhenof misdemeanor, but very little
of crime. jOnly four .eases .of . larceny
appear, which speaks well of the hon
esty of the people. .' There i -rather a
liberal exhibition , f assaults' - and. bat
teries, a smaller number of affrays and
a goodly number 6f yielding to the temp

Among the cases are 'twenty-one bilk
against a woman, one Lotty Calloway,
for "Belling whiskey without license.
There is one case of burglary ia which
n is hoped and believed that toe char
acter, of the accused: will be amply vin
dicated. ' He is a young man of a highly
respectable 'and influential family, far
removed above the temptation' to the
crime with which he stands charged,
and with no antecedents which might
properly subject him to suspicion. He

A case was tried this afternoon which
just one year ago was the'occosioh : of
wide spread interest in mis and adjoin
ing counties. Early in April of laet year
a party of young inn were working one
of the public roads. There was much
emulation between them and some rath
er rough bantering, relative to work and
capabilities; . This was more especially
with Benjamin Buchanan and. James
W. Shepperd, the latter scarcely come of
age, the other older and a married man,
though a very yoong one. .Buchanan,
enraged at an insulting expression of
Shepperd, suddenly raised the hoe with
which he was working, and struck Shep
perd a heavy blow ugon the. very crown
of the head as be bad turned to resume
his work. He did not fall until he bad
reached his -house, several hundred
yards .distant, which he did bathed in
blood, .then. falling unconscious on the
floor. Physicians were obtained as soon
as possible iroui franklin. tiis skull
was found to he cleft open, fragments of
the skull driven into the lacerated brain, i
and in dressing and cleaning the wound
a very material Quantity of the brain '
sraa -removed-. - Dr.. I.vl a. rjeaetitioner
of hong standing and exleiisTve practice,
told me that he had never knOwn any
one to survive the removal of so much of
the brain, and that in nine cases out of
ten the injury would have been followed
by death in twenty four hours. Shep
perd ' is well and gave in his testimony
this afternoon with a clearness and
directness that proved that his intellect
ual powers were not materially impaired.
tie is said however to nave bad slizut
attacks of epilepsy since his recovery. :
At the close of the. testimony the de
fendant submitted to a verdict of guilty
and was sentenced to eight months im
prisonment in the county, jail which
with a prisoner's ttmfinement will go to
make up a year in prison for an oflence
which seems to have come lroin a sudden
impulse of uncontrollable terrper rather
than from notice or premeditation. The
punishment falls heavily upon a sick

involving the destruction or embarrass

. Late yesterday , afternoon Admiral

In an interview this moruing Secreta
ry Whitney, explains the delicate posi
tion in which Admiral Jouett was
placed " lie says, "Trouble at - Panama
is - practically eheed. I think Admiral
Jonett and his associates in the expedi
tion have acted with great good judgment
and discretion. Yesterday morning they
were in trouble! Two forces prepared
to fight it out in the city of Panama. " I
think Admiral- Touett'a ' position " has
been- under his instructions that to set
tle their disputes in that city woilid' rb
sGitinthe embarrassment of the tslh-
nvus Transit, and be in violation of'tra
ty obligations, and fchould 'hot Do'done,
It. has resulted in forcing a settlement
of their matters and prcoervation of prop,
erty: Insurgents, if obliged to fight out
side of the city unprotected by buildings
and. barricades could" not under any ' cir
ernstahces succeed. .They have there
fore surrendered without fighting.'" !
think the "manner ' of our people and
heir determined opposition when acy-
tliing was done which lookel like peril
to their interests they were there to pro-'
text,'must have inspired very desirable
feeling of respect, at same time has avoid
ed that feeling 6 hostility likely'to arise
Jroui presence of superior force from
withoutand which would lead to occasion
permanent irritation and unfriendliness
I think the expedition "will result ulti
mately in benefitting our commercial
relations down thereL It has shown that
we were ready to act effectually and de
cisively and at the saute time in a mod
orate and proper spirit, protecting our
interests and rigbbi and not' infringing
