There is such close and intimate connection Int wecu A she ville and Kuoxvdle, and so many Bast Teu uesscaus residing here, that the ,;daniity was lett as one shared in common by both couiuitinitics, and Ihe anxiety for inlnimalit.n and details was nearly as rea1. here as in Ku x ville. We shall use pari of the report we Iind in thcjouninl of yesterday. The eal.'unily was ol no common kind.1 It attended ihe iiisl 'cMionslralioii of salisfactioii al the ctilimn.i lion o an im portant enterprise. It was the expression of the pride o a city llial aspired io so much, had dared so much, ha ' accom plishcd so much.

Tlie sacrifice, though lamentably reat, is not so much s as it miuht have been. How terrible the blow struck let the heart of Knoxville, we can well conceive. We can b'iu.yhte the cheers and the lihl hearted farewells as the fated train sped unconsciously to its doom. We can scarcely picture the agonies of jjricf, the fears, the anxieties, th; I filled the breasts of friends at home at the llash ofthenoLC d disaster. Wc make the f llivin disconnected extracts from the Journal, which will supply perha, s needed information.
