Mr. Crawford, and the gentlemen associated with him, we are informed, are sufficiently advanced in matters relating to the proposed Fentress County Railroad, to be enabled to depute Mr. Cyrus Clarke to approach the Mortgagees of the Rugby Estate with definite proposals. Mr. Clarke has, consequently, written Mr. Walton, the .representative of the mortgagees, in the much regretted unavoidable absence of Mr. lumber, the chief mortgagee, asking a right CINCINNATI EXPOSITION.

Mr. Clarke further asks the gift of about fifteen hundred acres which the Board possesses just across the Clear Fork, in Fen tress county. These are the substantial proposals made on behalf of Mr. Crawford and his associates, and, we think, there will be no one to find fault with them, they being most reason able, moderate and judicions in The Cincinnati Exposition is proving a great success, the daily attendance being much above that of previous demonstrations of a similar nature. Crowded excursion trains are daily running into the Queen city, bearing visitors to see more wonderful things than King Solomon had to shew to the Queen of Sheba. It was thought in Rugby it would be well to send up some samples and specimens of the pro ductions of our soil, that we might show the many thousands of country and city people what we have grown. We believe the vegetables and fruits will attract much attention, and make the eyes to open of those who have been told again and again that the Rugby soil is poor, thin, and, to the farmer and gardener, unprofit able. Those who know better will be clad to see Rugby vindicating herself by the best of all arguments, j On Wednesday the following farm and garden productions were sent up to the Exposition : The Board of Aid Gardens, by Mr. Onderdonk : Eleven varieties of fruits and vegetables. J. II. Blacklock : Ten varieties of vegetables. J. W. Giles: One variety potatoes. Misses Madge and Milly Clarke : One Giraffe gourd. Amos York : Six varieties apples.

In this kindly climate the account of having seriously shot Mr, business-like and neighborly spirit, there is every prospect, and at a near period, of our seeing the railroad through, or very near to, Rugby. It is not that the negotiators of the proposed Fentress county rail way cannot do without using the Board's property, but there are strong reasons why they should wish to run their line through portions of it to the Cincinnati Southern, and it is quite unnecessary to particularize the amazing benefit and value the Board's lands would receive by the fact of the rail traversing them. It will be more than regretable if the mortgagees are not able to meet the proposals favorably ; it will show a want of foresight, and a non-appre- ar ciation of the requirements of Rugby and the district, we should be very sorry to attribute to theui. skilful and industrious farmer or Davidson, the Deputy Sheriff gardener may soon add to his and the world's wealth by making a Chattanooga, Sept. 14th.

The enemy was evidently taken by surprise, and after a very brief resistance, fled in great haste towards Cairo and the desert. Arabi Pasha managed to escape. The Highland Brigade and the Royal Irish bore the brunt of the light. It is supposed 2,000 Arabs were killed. 3,000 were taken prisoners, with much war. material, provisions, etc. The English loss is estimated at 200. Many officers were wounded, and several killed. There were many deeds of military daring, among them, Colonel Gordon Cary, although wounded, killing with his claymore, three Egyptain officers. The scene of the battle is fifty miles from Cairo. General Macphersou, after the battle, by a forced march, occupied Zag-a-zig, seizing five trains with their engines. It is ex pected the battle of Tel-el-Kebir will completely break up Arabi's power. In the engagement on Sat urday, at Kassassin, the English lost four killed and sixty wounded. One hundred men-of-war and transports used the Suez Canal between August 20th and September Gth, making a tonnage and passenger bill due to the Company of about $500,000. The Bengal Lancers, and the Indian troops generally, are proving very serviceable. More than one-half of Arabi's men formed a rabble, and were worthless as soldiers. The black troops of the Soudan fought well. The English advance guard arrived at Cairo by rail, and were received with great enthusiasm. Arabi Pasha is in the city and is virtually a prisoner. He was stoned when he entered the city. Person ages of rank concerned in the rebellion are making submission. The Sultan telegraphed his con gratulations to Gen. Wolseley, and asking him to stop his march into the interior now the neck of the rebellion is broken. Wolseley replied by telegram that he must refer the Sultan to London for an answer. The British loss on Wednesday was 9 officers killed and 45 men, and 22 officers wounded and 330 men. About sixty guns were captured.
