Receipts Lnnrely in Excess of Run* nlnjr Kxpensw-If (ho Act is Un? constitutional it will not Affect It: THE SCIOTA VALLEY. The stockholders of the Roanoke and Southern Railroad Company held a large and enthusiastic meeting at Hie reading rooms of the Young Men's Christian Association. A very large amount of stock was re presented and the session was a very harmonious and pleasant one. Hon Henry S. Trout, president of th road, presided over the meeting and S. W. Jamison was secretarj The reports of the different officers showed the financial affairs of tin company to be in a very healthy state and the condition of that por? tion of the road that is completed also in excellent shape. Division "A," which extends from Winston, N, C.. to Martinsville, Va., will be completed hy December IPth, 1800. Trains are now running from Winston to Lad ford, a point twenty-eight miles south of Martinsville. Nearly all of the uncompleted section of Divi? sion UA" has been graded and the iron for all the bridges has been d is tributed. The Virginia and North Carolina Construction Company has taken up the option for the const ruction of Divi? sion "B," that is that portion of the road extending from Martinsville to this city. The reports also repre? sented that the net earnings of the part of the road now in successful operation, largely exceeds the running expenses. The election of officers en? sued with the following result : Presi? dent, Hon. Heny S. Trout, of Roan? oke ; first vice-president, J. W. Fries, of Salem, N. C. : third vice-president. J. H. Spencer,of Martinsville. Hoard of directors: J. M. Gambill, E. II. Stew? art. Robert A. Buekner. and Andrew Lewis, of Koanoke; C. H. Vogel, J. B. Gilmer, James A.Gray, (i. \V. Hin shaw, .1. W. Alsbaugh, and F. J. 8tone, of Winston- Salem : J. W. Mat? thews, 1'. P. Watson, S. G. Sheffield, C. B. Bryan, and J. O. Coan, of Mar tinsville. The question of the Roanoke appro? priation was taken up and discussed. It was agreed that even if the act was unconstitutional,!"^could not possibly have any elTeeton the prospects of the road, which will be pushed to com pletionwithout any delay. The route from Martinsville to Roanoke is being ?urveyed, and as soon as the right of way is settled, will be graded. FnctH About tho Norfolk mid Want em's Now TurclinNO. It waa authentically announced y es? terday from Philadelphia that the Norfolk and Western Railroad Com? pany has purchased the Soioto Valley and New England railroad, a line 131 miles long running from Petersburg, Ohio, a point this side of fronton, to Columbus, Ohio. This is a very important fact in rail? road circles. It means that the Nor? folk and Western has supplied the link necessary to complete its West? ern connect ion and will be a vigorous, competitor of the hunk lines into that rich and productive country, bringing its freight to the Seaboard at Norfolk. The Ohio division of the Norfolk and Western, or the Klkliorn Branch, is now under rapid construction. It extends from Bluestone Junction, a point about two miles east of Poca? hontas, crosses the Ohio river at ('credo, a point twelve miles west of Huntington, and follows the river on the Ohio side to Petersburg^ Ohio, near Iron ton, and opposite Ashland, Kentucky, where it connects with the Scioto Valley and New England roajl, making direct connection with ('oium bus. The route from here to Bluestone Junction is about 370 miles; from there to Petersburg about 150, and from there to'CoIutnbus 131, making a line of, say G50 miles, ali rail, from Norfolk to Columbus, Ohio, under one management. A glance at the map shows Columbus as a railroad center of immense importance, draw ing from all directions. It presents the appearance of the centre of a tre? mendous spider's web. The completion of tho roadbed of the Klkliorn branch will thus put Norfolk and Columbus together via the Norfolk and Western, and is al? most as near together as Norfolk and Chattanooga are now. It is impossible to overestimate the value of this part of this forward movement, and we make the an? nouncement in congratulation to tho people here and to the progressive md aggressive management of the Norfolk and Western Company,which is now among the greatest railroad enterprises in the United States, pur? suing a bold and yet judicious well onsidered' policy, commanding a nagni?cerit property, penetrating a country of inexhaustible commercial and mineral treasure, and having Norfolk as its ocean terminus. In the language o!' one of our leading citi? zens who expressed himself on the event, "a great day this for our city." Norfolk Landmark. on the turf. MUCH EXCITEMENT OVER THE RACES YESTERDAY.

John Ryan was arrested yesterday and carried before Judge Howerton on the charge of having in his pos? session stolen property. He says that the night of the big rain he was caught in it near the machine works, and crawled into a box car. He was wet and pulled off his coat so as to dry it. He then dropped off to sleep. During the night some one entered the car and, spreading his coat out on the floor, laid a number of small bits upon it. This awakened Mr. Ryan, and the man was frightened ofT. In the morning he got up and was just removing the bits from his coat when some men came in and charged him with taking the property. This he deniad, and proved such a clear record by responsible parties that the judge released him. .Ni-rloii?, Wr?-vU oil Ilu> <*ri|>i>lc Croch i>l vision oftiic BT. (V w. Bead. Particulars of a serious and perhaps fatal wreck on the ('ripple Creek div? ision of the Norfolk and Western road was received here yesterday. Passenger train No. 'J. which left Pulaski at :'. p. in. Saturday evening, collided with a material train near Ivauhoe. The material train, it is said, was running on orders to meet the passenger at a switch fourteen miles from Ivanhoe. Tin- passenger, it seems, had no orders against tho train, and went thundering on to? wards Ivanhoe, the material likewise hastening towards the switch. They met at a curve about midway between the two points named and collided with territic force. There were only a few passengers onboard the passenger train, and t hey escaped with slight bruises oc? casioned by the jar of the collision. The engineer and fireman, however, were not so fortunate. Both were badly injured, the fireman by jump? ing breaking one of his lower limbs and sustaining serious internal in? juries which may prove fatal, and the engineer, who stood gallantly at his post, being painfully scalded by escap? ing steam. On the material train were a Dum berof negroes, who, all unmindful of danger, were lounging on the Mat cars, singing railroad songs or indulging in thoughts Of thegood times they would have at Pulaski on Sunday with their dusky sweethearts, when lol the crash came. Seven of them were in? jured in various ways, some seriously and others slightly* The most se? riously injured, however, was one named Baker, who, it is said, had one side of Iiis head badly crushed by a tool chest being thrown against him.

New York, June 17.?Tho races for the Suburban stakes of $40,000 were well attended and tlie fine day brought a large crowd to the course. The track was in excellent condition as were also tho horses, and the scene in front of the grand stand before the races commenced was nevor more brilliant. Teuny was a favorite from the lirsl with the bookmakers, and as the day grew on the odds against him became smaller and smaller, until just before the start they wen- only 10 for 12. Sal va tor was the favorite for place, but he also sold for y for ? as the winner. At ~> o'clock the horses left the post. Cassius led with Strideaway socond and Longstreet a good third. At the quarter Cassias was two lengths ahead, while Longstreet had passed Strideaway by a length. At the half Cassiers had increased his head by a length with Longstreet still a good second and Strideaway third. At the three-fourths post Oassier.s began to fail and was only two lengths ahead, with Longstreet and Stridea? way neck and neck. Vt tho mile the horses got on their metal and began to show what was in them. Cassius struggled nobly, but the other two were left behind, and Salvator got a fresh wind and forged into the second place. Long street, however, stuck to third like grim death, and Tenny, the favorite, pushed forward only a length behind tho winner. Down the stretch the racers pushed to the utmost by the jockeys. The veins stood out on Salvator like whip? cords, and urged by the whip he went ahead like an arrow, closely followed by Longstreet. Cassius, too, was pushed, but he was no match for Sal vator, who passed him like a flash ami won by a neck. Terry was a good third, while tie' others straggled on behind. The time was 2.06 -l ?. 8&AKXS HEU O.VLY FRIENDS. A Fciuiile Hermit Who Died Stir romidcU by Reptile*. Salkm, Va., June 15.?A singular character, by name Martha Ann Till son, and who was known as the "snake woman,'' died near here re? cently. She lived in a little cabin at the foot of Twelve O'clock Knob, and led a hermit's life, having no one to share her abode except snakes. By the few who were ever allowed to see the interior of her cabin it is said to ha e literally swarmed with her strange companions, with which she ate and slept, and which were to be seen lying in her bosom and coiled about her neck, body and limbs when? ever she was caught sight of. Her extraordinary prediliction for these unpleasant creatures is sup? posed to have arisen from a nior bid feeling that she was, like them, hated of men, for naturally deformed, sin- received in addition an injury to the spine while an infant, and, "though perfectly sound in mind, was of so sensitive a nature as to render her miserable and uneasy in the presence of any but her parents. She was'ob? served to steal away every day with a pan of milk, and. on being followed, was found to be caressing a doeen or so hideous rattlesnakes, while they drank from the vessel which she held in her lap. Horrified, her parents tried to reason with her. then to pun? ish, and finally to confine her, in an endeavor to break of her fondness for the reptiles, but she pined so for her pots that they feared she would die if kept from them. She was a little, fair woman of about 4."5, with sandy hair, very abundant and long, which she wore in a number of tight plaits, which, combined with her deformity and the odd, miscellaneous style of dressin the result of her refusal to hold any communication with a fellow being served to make her a most remark able looking object. She was looked upon as a witch by the negroes about who declared her to be possessed of the evil eye, and hated and feared her accordingly, though her life was a most harmless, quiet one. She had been dead some flays when discovered and her dead body was literally cov ered by a writhing mass of snakes which had to be killed before it could be removed, for the snakes turned viciously on all approaching the re mains. On her heart was found coiled a huge rattlesnake dead. Kim Over nntl Killed. Monday morning at an early hour near Sands, in Page county, Robert Campbell, a resident, was run over by the south-bound night express on the Shenandoah Valley railroad, and instantly killed. Before the accident was discovered a freight train follow? ing also run over the unfortunate man's remains, still further mangling his body in a horrible manner. It is said that Campbell left Sands late in the evening in an intoxicated condi? tion, and tlie supposition is that he either attempted to cross the track in front of the approaching train or else laid down upon it.
