Workmen for the Tnnnel.

of persons employed on " the Ilill" is
now estimated at between five and six hundred,
principally Irishmen; and, for their
usually boisterous nature, good order is well
It will bo a source of much gratification to
the friends of this enterprise to learn that
tliCBO gentlemen are making satisfactory progress,
and can demonstrate, with almost
mathematical precision, the time of completion.

variety, taken from his gardeu. The season
has boon a favorable one for this fruit, and
to the Colonel's housohold we are largely indebted
for our enjoyment in this way. It is
a matter of surnriso that. wIiava nnr nlimnfn
is so dcstructivo to fruit generally, this berry
is so much noglcctcil, especially when the
difficulties attending its production are not
by any means great.
For these,and other kind remembrances from

It was well attended, with the right spirit

points, will act promptly, and thereby secure

The Blue Ridge Turnpike|
Our readers will rooollcct that during (he
last year wo brought to their notice the fact
that an enterprise was on foot, originated by
Col. \Vm. Si.o.vx, to connect Greenville via the
i French lJrorul with Cashier Valley, N. C. and
Tunnel Hill, in this district, by turnpike.?
Much of the roivl, between Greonvillo and
Cashier Valley, is now completed. From
the latter point, to the Tunnel, the work goes
bravely on under the direction of Mr. W. L.
Si.oan, tlio cfTtcicnt contractor. Over tour
miles of the eighteen havo been finished, and
a large forco is constantly employed on the
work by this Company.
A notico also appears incur columns for
n charter for an cxtonsion of this lino to Tugaloo,
ami ultimately to Clarkcsvillc, GaThe
importance of this project cannot bo too
highly estimated. The energy and industry
of the people of thoso mountainous regions
have been cramped and neutralized for the
want of outlets for their trade and traffic; and,
for summer travel and delightful relaxation
from business, there is i>) route that can favorably
compare with it.
Wc have only time and spaco to say this
much at present on the subject, with a strong
oommcmlattoii of fclto cncnrptisc OXprwHSCd tO
those who arc interested in its success. Let
us have a "long pull, a strong pull, and a
pull altogether," for the Blue Ridge turnpike !
News of the Week.
Congress has changed their day of adjournment
from the 7th to Thursday last the 10th.
So far no important legislation engrosses the
attention of that hodv. The war feeline is
J o ?
rmining high at Washington.
The outbreak and utter disregard of law
and order, which has occurred in New Orleans,
is a disgraec to a free aud enlightened
people. The assumption of authority, by ir"
responsible persons, is to remove all security
and protection to life aud property. >Ve only
haVO the telegraphic accounts, which aro
not very intelligible. Further particulars
may roach us during next week.
Hon. J. pincknky IIkndersok, Sonntor in
Congress from Texas, died at Washington on
the 4th, of consumption. It wa6 his firrft?e?- |
eion at Washington, where ho had already |
attained a high position. The funeral cere"
monies took place on Saturday.
A lio outrages on American vessels continue,
with, it is reported, the loss of life in one instance.
It is also rumored that orders coun- ]
termanding the overhauling aud search of our
vessels at sea have been sent out by the British
minister at Washington. Nothing definite,
therefore, is known as to the reliability
of either. Tho next arrival from Englaud
will give us the determination of tho British
government, aud that will mark out the course
for us to pursue. If blood, howevert has been
spilled, wo do not woll see how a collision between
the two countries can be avoided. A

The former we should be compelled to regard
as a calamity, but not bo great as the loss of
our property and honor.

Railroad was hold at Anderson on Monday
last. Three hundres shares of one hundred
dollars each were subscribed. A c.nmmiHnn

An adjourned meeting will tako place on saleday
in Jtdy next.
Arrivals from Liverpool advise us of a decline
of an l-8d in cotton. Corn has also declined,
and breadstufl's ar<> dull sale. England
and Naples arc preparing for war, the
latter country refusing to indemnify the citizens
of the former for imprisonment and loss
of property: so our ancient enemy is likely
to nave ner nanus lull. Advices from India
state that A/.higher has been relieved, and
the rebels defeated near Bullinghor. Many
of the rebels were killed and five hundred taken
prisoners. The British loss was seventy.
Disturbances and bloodshed continue in
Kansas, but it is difficult to get correet accounts.
From Utah unoffioiul statements induce
us to believe that trouble has commenced
there iu earnest.
The "Charleston Standard" has been discontinued,
and the establishment offered for

is the cause.
