.7 win NARBi.r. iNrr.iu.vr. CnpilnlUls liilcrrMlpd in Ihrlr Iorti. Itlfllt, Knoxville I.IKcly be lMVgftr Itoiiettltert. We took occasion yesterday to visit the Government quarry at Mecklenburg and found it the scene of even greater uctivity tlinn wo had supposed. Since the weather tins settled so as to justify active opera tions, (.ieii. Jlolmnn, the superintendent, has put on additional force, and will jush forward . tho work day Jind night until enough stone is cot out to complete tho building, lie thinks this will be done in three months, lie is now getting out stone for the cornice of the building, some of which are very large. lhey will weigh thirteen tons when cut nud dressed ready lor laving. When ilie government building is com pleted, a irivute company will take t-lfttrge of the quarry and proposed to fret out mar ble for shipment to some of the large cities. The company is composed of George W. Ross, of this city, nud Gen. J. II. Holman, and J. and W. Putrid;, of St. Louis. The last two are very wealthy, controling mill ions of capital. Cen. Holinan's"iractieal knowledge of the business will insure its success. Mr. Ross' liuaneial 'capacity is well known. 1 lie company is a strong one, having abundance of capital to run the business to its utmost capacity. i?f. Louis has been lookingjor buildingstoue forsome time. The owners of the St. Genevie sandstone tiuarrv thought they had it, but that stone has been condemned by the Government as not possessing sullicient strensrth for building purposes. This Knoxville marble has been attracting much attention tliero of late, as well as of Eastern men. Judaea of build- insr stone pronounce it the finest buildinir material In the United States, if not in the world. Its weight is about l." pounds per cubic foot, more than any Lastern grunite. .Mr. vuneit, theSirnervisitn: Arcliiteet at Washington pronounees it the most durnble stone in the L'nited .States. Knowing these things, it is not strange, that shrewd business men and capitalists such as those above mentioned, sLnsuld put their nionevmto ituud develop it. Already they have begun to receive orders for their marble from St. Louis. Rut for the. fact that tho Government rt uuircs hM tbe toi:e that can he quarried now, they would be shipping it to fill orders. In view of tho tact that they had a good thing, they have leased tho quarry . now being worked, for ten years and will in a few days extend it to twenty years. They have purchased ten acres of" land near by. where they will open another quarry. They will purchase sallicient machinery to properly run tin. business, and contemplate working at least nno hundred hands constantly. If these gentlemen are successful, and we see no reason why they should not be, this business will prove very beneficial to Kuoxville. It will bo a development of our hidden resources, that will bring wealth. The marble of Kast Tennessee i3 destined at some time to become a source of prosperity and we trust this is the begin ning. We shall rejoice at the sueess of this -company, and trust that others may be stimulated to ellbrt by their example. It is no experiment with them. They know iust what the cost will be and what thev can cet for marble. Gen. Hoi man's exnerience in the Government building has taught him practical lessons in this particular stone, and the company will mnkr use of that knowledge. Hence we can not see how the enterprise can fail. Mi uiM.it i.v roLK tiii xn. The Sln Colony, ' Through the kindness 'of Mr.Teter Ptaub, we had tho pleasure of meeting with General Hit., tho Swiss Consul, who has ust returned from Grundy countv, whith er lie had been accompanying a party of rmmigranfs. He reports tho colony in a nourishing condition, there being now from OH to i families residing there. The party which p:.s-ed through our city a few days since, was composed of about forty persons, and most of the wealthier class of emmigrantx, one of them, Mr. Martigg, being I in? former Mayor ot Khosters, a city in the eastern portion of Switzer land, lie says the present unsettled condition in regard to titles is a great disadvantage to the State, as it will, unless a better law is passed, keep many men of capital away. The Genornl at present carries back with Aim to Wash ington which a man liad brought to Grundy county for the purpose of putting In operation a saw mill. lUit after having selected a site lie railed to get a title satis factory to his mind, and consequently sends that much capital again out. of our State. Should the present law remain un changed the nian will doubtless follow his capital. He says that with a little ett'ort on tne parte! the State authorities, a rich tide ol emigration can lie turned into 1 en nessee from Switzerland. The word Ten uessee has found its way Into the mouths of the Swiss people, while the whole of Switzerland feels favorably inclined to wards this State, and let them once be as sured of good titles, men of wealth anil inlluence will come over and mnKe 'ten nessee their future home. The General showed us a map of Grundy county, and a descriptive circular wnicn ne lias nan pre pared at hia own and Mr. Peter Staub's ex penso for circulation in Switzerland, ami he assures us that but comparatively few of the future Swiss Immigrants will fail to make Tennessee, and particularly Kast Tennessee, their future home. are glad that General Hit, takes S) deep an in teres t in the future welfare of our Slate feeling, however, as he feels, that in help ing us he Is favoring and helping his own peonlo. In his efforts, we would here state lie is ably seconded by Mr. Pete Staub. who li i-s'i. iinbiced him t visit th! State, feeling confident that if lie had once seen our natural advantages he could not help but be favorably impressed. We hope that all dillleulties in regard to titles will be removed by the present. Legisla tors, when we will soon find our Slate fill ed with wealthy immigrants. The General tools a look over our city yesterday, ana expressed himself very much pleased with It. lie spoke m a complimentary aim nai- rlnir manner of the future prospects of Knoxville, as portrayed to his mind by its present thrifty appearance. We will hope tiiat lus prognostications will be nuiy verified. T1IK VII. KXI'OSITIO. Ar. Xnllcp to those Who Wlxll In K-itl Helen far Fxlillil tlou.

He visited a fair lady in Montague street, Brooklyn. Ho had visited her often before. He was looked upon, in fact, as the future milliner's bill payer of that female, and he was always in the habit of taking a welcoming kiss from her beautiful lip. (In the night in question when the door was opened he clasped the door-opener in his arms, called her "dearest," Imprinted several kisses on her lips when he found hlmsel grasped by powerful hands, and a manly voice shouted : "You scoundrel, how dare von kiss my wife." And then Mr. Altornti found himself raised in the air. Ho doesn't know what it was that propelled him, blithe found himself lying in the middle of the street without any action on his own part.

Dull", as a jury, held an inquest upon the hodv of Jacob Davis, there dead, and their verdict was that deceased came to his iioiitli from a cun or pistol shots in tbe hands and liied by .Mielmel Itoarl: and otlier?. The facts are about these : Davis and Joe Jtoark. had a difficulty hut summer Home time, and in January lant Alex. Ro urlt and William Holdeu, brother-in-law tn .loo and Alex. Iloark renewed the ditll- eulty with Davis, when Jfolden shot at Davis, whereupon Dayis returned the fire hlitfbtly woundiu;; Holdeu in the shoulder. Nothing more of interest occurred, until tliHlastdav of February, when Davis and Alex. Hoaik met at the Cross Itoads and made friends and Alex, insisted upon him iroinf hoiua witli him to stay all night, but Davis refused to co. IVoark insisted .on him coming soon in the morning for lie wanted to swap pistols with him. Alex. Koark lived a little less than half a mile from the Cross Heads. The next morning, the 1st of March, Davis started over into Bradley county, urn lis he nussed A. Koark's house. Kike, the father of Joe and Alex, whs standing in the door, aud after Davis passed thirty .or forty yards, shot him In tbe back, which seemed to be u signal for the others. Da vis heinir nfrufd thev were before him also, immediately turned und ran back by the house while thev were shootihir at him One ball striking him In the left side, one irlaneed the ton of his head, two others through his coat, which did not take ellect In his body. The one that glanced tils tiead knocked him to his hands and knees, " when they set a fierce dog umn him, but Jie rose and kept the dog from biting him -Mini inn on about two or three hundred yards farther, falling twice more, when he was met by ?ome men from the Cross Uouds. who heard the firing and saw Da vis riintiliiL'. Davis said lie did not see anyone but Mike Koark. Uut Alex, and Holdeu are both hiding out with the old man, and are still at large. Davis was helped to the house of Mr. Graham, where he died about 11 o'clock, a. M., the 4th day of this month. S'Kini:i.i:i. Mill Grove, Polk Co., Tenn., March 7th. ll IileUen Kttlixl.

Kingston is among the oiuest towns in the State, and, like our own pleasant village retains too many marks ot autnjui tv. In some resnects it possesses superior a'dvautages, and under the inlluence of tbe spirit of development ami progress now being initiated in Kast Tennessee, it may become the seat of a large aud prosperous manufacturing interest.
