Some lew of the bonds had l>een previously sold, nut the bargain of to-day was for 33,51X1,000, which covers every bond authorized undor the mortgage. This is one of the largest transactions predicated upon a Southern enterprise that has been effected in Wail Street for many a day, and demonstrates with what increasing favor Southern secu rities have come to lie regarded in the New York money market. WHO BOUGHT THEM. A million dollars of the bonds were sold to a representative of lon 4kn capitalists. The remaining $8,300,000 Worth were sold to James U. Jack son, a bond and stock broker of Augusta, Ga. Mr Jackson’s purchase was for himself and associates who are composed of New York and Southern financiers. His man agement of the deal even in the atmosphere of Wall street, where large monetary trails actions are common is regarded as an ad mirable negotiation, and secures to him the congratulations of all who are acquainted with the deal. The new' South owes much of her improved credit and rapid develop ment to the enterprising spirit, and in domitable energy of iter best young men, and Mr. Jackson is a worthy representative of that class.

C., to Knoxville, Tenn.. and also southward from Marietta to Atlanta. Ga , wdll lie built with all possible dispatch.

This road w ill open up one of the richest mineral regions, some of the most valuable coal fields and by far the most inexhausti ble and varied marble beds of the whole Southern territory, and will constitute the shortest possible line between Knoxville, Tenn., and Atlanta, Ga., thereby establish ing quicker and more intimate connection between the West and the South.

This week will open a full list of attrac tions. To-morrow night Robert Downing will appear as “Spartaeus” in the Glndie tor. Mr. Downing returns to Savannah this year, supported by even a better com pany than the one seen with him last year, it comprises several well known legitimate actors, and is said to be, with perhaps one exception, the strongest, company support ing any legitimate star in this country.

It strikes down man hood and womanhood on the verge of busy I lie, and takes from the scenes of merriment the playful child, and from the aged pilgrim death takes away the “broken reed” on which he leaned for support. One well stricken in years has sunk into the tomb. One who has seen generations rise and fall, has dosed her eyes on the nothingness of earth. One whose heart was kindly disposed toward suffering humanity, has departed from her midst of earthly usefulness; one who had an outstretched hand for the sorrowful now sleeps the sleep which know s no waking. Whereas. By an inscrutable decree of Irovi dence, our .Society's late friend and patron, MRS. (i. W. J. DeRENNE, has departed this life, and thereby closed her earthly career of usefulness and bpnevolence, and . . , Whereas, By the kind and friendly acts during her life, shown our Society, by which her mem ory will lie lastingly perpetuated by our mem bers; be it therefore Re.so/ivd, That we sincerely lament the loss of our fi iend and patron; That we tender our sincere sympathy and condolence to the be reaved family of the deceased. That a page on our minute book be devoted to the memory of our departed friend, and that a copy of this preamble and resolutions be trans mitted to the family. WERNER S. BYCK, A. E. DRYFUS, F. J.
