rHB DAILY DISPATCH
Cwrwyon<e«ce #f the Dltfaiek. Frkukbi ckibukg, June 28. Messrs. Editors The people of thia place are voting. to-day, upon (be proposition to appropriate $15,000 for the extension of the Frtdeiicksburi, and Valley Plank Road, front its present terminus this side of Orange Court Hoaae to Liberty Mills, and upon the pro,io* iwtioM, also, to risk $2500 in keeping open the Rappahannock Canal. Fro® present "PP e " r ' ■aces, the appropriations will fsucceed by a large majority. The fact is, Fredericksburg has just opened her eyes, and now see* that something must be done or she is lost, ■roper spirit now seems to pervade the con - monitv, and much of the prejudice heretofore existing against these improvements—partic alarly the canal—has been entirely removed by the able expose made in public meeting by the Presidents of the two companies. Ihe Plank Road succeeds admirably, and atfer it •hall have been completed to Liberty Mills, it is proposed to eitend it to Stanardsville.and to have branches toCulpeper C. H., and Racoon Ford, which will undoubtedly succeed, as the Farmeia are very much in favoi of these "Far mers' Rail Roads" upon which they can drive their own cars and take the same load with half the number of horses, as they can upon a common turnpike. Our Court House will be entirely completed in about a month, and if vou want to see the prettiest building in the State, come up ar.d take a view of it; and, at the same time, look ■t our pretty girls—of which we have any quantity. Mayor Sempie will, no doubt, take pleasure in pointing them out, as he is a con ■oiseur in those subjects. The Fredericksburg Guards have revived, with all their pristine spirit, and from this time will become, no doubt, one of the best volun teer corps in the State. At a late meeting a ■limber of accessions to the ranks took place, ■■d Captain Barton, the former gentlemanly and popular Captain, having resigned his of fice, Mr. D. Lee Powell was unanimously elected to fill the post. Captain Powell is a graduate of the Lexington Institute, and be ■ides f being one of the best officers and one of the finest looking men in the State, possesses all the other qualities necessary for the sta tion. The fiue Band attached to the Company, led br Adams, started a few days since for a week's engagement ut the University, at Char lottesville. They will return on Thursday. I hope the Ist Regiment of Volunteers, of your city, will conclude to have an encamp ment, as has been nuggested by some of its officers. 1 have, for some time, been on the point of proposing it, and believe it will be a great thing for the Volunteers of the State.— Let there be a Prize Banner offered for the best drilled corps on the ground, and let all Volunteer Companies in the State be invited to attend, and no doubt it would be a spirited af lair. The military sDirit has been aroused here, and while the Guards have about fifty muskets, I understand that about forty names have been obtained to a new corps to be drilled with rifles. So much the better. Em ulation will keep both in existeuce, and there is material enough to furnish each Company with 100 tnen. The Guards have changed their heavy leather caps for the army regulation style, with poinpon, and have adopted changed in their uniform which make it much cheaper than formerly. No further new?. Yours, &.c. Shocking Occurrence. The following melancholy affair happened about eight o'clock on ihe evening of the 19th •f May, at or near ihe ranch of Captain I'hif ster, fourteen miles hack from Martinez, recalling in the almost instant death of one of (he parties. The particulars, as near as our informant could ascertain, areas follows: A party of mutual friends met at the above place, among whom were Mr. Smith, (a broth <ci of Ovli Wtn. M. MraitW, of Uttrttnoß,) unci Capt. Howe, in the employ of the U. S. govern ment. In the eourse of conversation, soma words escaped from Mr. Smith; a' which Howe took offence; Mr. Smith Immediately declared that it was not his intention to insult him, and expressed his willingness to retract the offen tire words, at the same time offering his hand to Cap'. Howe, as a proof of his regret. Howe refused to accept it. Mr. Smith then m«de aomc remarks and moved awav, but had only proceeded a short distance, when he was alarmed by two shots from a pistol being fired after hi in. He instantly returned and inquired who it was that shot at him. Howe replied, "I am the mun;" whereupon Smith rejoined, "You won't shoot any more men;" or words to that effect, and drew his pistol and fired. The !>ell struck Howe directly in the breast, and he fell,mortally wounded; he lived but five minutes after receiving the shot. His body was remov ed to Benicia for burial, on the afternoon of yesterday.—San Francisco Herald May 21.
