The Memphis and Charleston
railroad is being prepared., and will I
soon oe in good running order. We
hear that it,will be open to-day, but

Major Smith, of the United States
Telegiraph corps, arrived in this city
T uesdaS evening. and inunediatelyv
ithee was a stir about the telcgraph
orfice. indicating a speedy comnlluni
cation with the outtide world. Ac
c'o)mlpnliying him was Maj. Brackett,
of the Curtis corps of United States
L..n;chburg Republican says :
A gentilinan iront Lewisburg in
t',rinrL us that Col. Crooks, the Yant
kee 'nilitarv Governor of the town,
ordered an ele ction of town oeficer-,
and summoned the ieopleC to intet
him at the Court House. Upon their
assembling, ho addressed theim'n in a
:na speech, telling theni the ifoly uf
thuir rebellion against the ilmoSt
humaic and benignant go vennirent
in the world," and advising them ti
take the -oath of alle.gisn.ce, and
again he received under the pratec
wion of the Stars and Stripes; but
his words fell as if thie struck the
**dull cold ear of death," no one res
ponding to his pathetic appeal. Af.
ter he concluded, Samuel Price, Esq.,
bun old and prominent lawyer of
;reenbrmer, arose and commenced
addressing the crowd. He told them
Virginia had soteded from the old
IJnion and united her destiny with
another Governmenment, and he re
garded her course as legal and just.

single vote wai cast. Up to this
Stime not one citizen of the town has
Staken the.oath of allegiance to the
Y ankee 4Government, nor is there
any likelihood of any doing so.
The gentleman further informed
Sus that a large number of the Union
citizens of Nicbholas and the adjoiu
ing counties were leaving for Ohio
and other parts of the North, being
L1 satisfied that tihe sichemes of Abe
Lincoln would not succeed, and they
Swere taking time by the forelock
e and getting out of the way; being
t. convinced that the Southern Confed
0 eracy would then be no place for
- them.

With its usual fondness for sensa
,tion articles, the New York Herald
,proclaims the wonderfulpiece of news
Sthat the defense of Richmond is to be
Sabandoned, the rebel army disbanded
Sand the whole Southern Confederacy
a to be given up in despair. The Her
Said goes so far as to say that "a pro
; position to this effect has passed
Sthrough Gen. McDowell's lines, at
Fredericksburg, on its way to Wash
Sington." This extraordinary story is
1 evidently gotten up to ratllyv the North
Sern mind from the disheartcning oeffect
of its reverse before lichmuond, and
the Herald accordingly dresses it up
in the very best style.
George De (Irasse, a colored man,
