Measures for • Rebuilding and Repairs
The railroads leading from Savannah are
most important to her commercial success,
and to the whole territory which depends on
Savannah tor its supplies and a market forks
products. They have suffered sadly from the
war— repairs have necessarily been much neg
lected, and in Sherman 's great march, track®
were torn up, bridges burned, rolling stock
destroyed, and in some places the grading
seriously interfered with. Now that Peace is
established, one of its most gratifying results
is the resumption of control of their roads by
the corporations, the institution of active
measures for their repair, and the placing of
them in good running order.
THE CENTRAL RAILROAD,
with its assets, lias now been turned over
to the Directors by the military authorities.
The distance by this road from Savannah
to Macou is 190 1-4 miles. Os this distance,
in Sherman’s march, 130 miles was destroy
ed. Twenty miles of this, Irom Macon to
Gordon, has been repaired, and is in active
The commencement of the repairs on the
road from here to Milltn, 79 miles, will be
commenced at once.
Millen is the intersection of the Augusta
and Savannah Railroad, and that, road re
quires about 18 miles of rebuilding, which,
with 32 miles now in operation, will make a
railroad connection between Savannah and
Augusta of 132 miles.
Thence, by the Georgia Railroad, 171 miles
to Atlanta, and from thence, by the Macon
and Western Railroad, 103 miles, direct com
munication will be had with Macon.
It is contemplated to at once rebuild the
eighteen miles of the road from Savannah to
Waynesboro’, which, in connection with the
roads now in operation, will make direct
railroad communication with Macon, Au
gusta, Columbus, West Point, and all of
Os the brauch from Gordon to Eatonton,
38 nriles iu length, about six miles was de
stroyed in Sherman’s march, together with
three bridges over Buck Creek, Fishing
Creek and Little River. This road has been
thoroughly repaired, and is now in success
ful operation from Macon to Eatonton. 58
The distance from Millen to Gordon Is 91
miles, and.the greater portion has been de
stroyed. The work of repairs will begin at
once, and progress will be made as rapidly
A large force will be put on. at once, and
the work will be pushed forward with every
eflort. The company has abundant means,
and'the importance of the road to the people
has been fully appreciated by the directors,
but having had no control of the road until
very recently, we feel convinced that their
best exertions will be used to put the road in
successful operation as soon as possible.
The whole cost of the reconstruction will
probably be about one million of dollars, and
the prospect now is that the work will be so
far completed as to give us direct communi
cation with Augusta by the middle of Sep

the branch road from Millen to Augusta, and

This road is an important one for cotton
dealers along its line and the vicinity of
Thomasville, and also to people travelling
along the route, or to Savannah.
SAVANNAH AND CHARLESTON ROAD
We do not know that there is any immedi--
ate prospect of the re-building of this Road.
As soon as we obtain any information in re
gaul to it, we shall be glad to publish it.
This road is also an important one, hut it has
suffered badly from military operations in
S Notices or the Herald.— We get a great

Seventeenth of June.— Saturday was the
Seventeenth of June, the anniversary of the
Rattle of Bunker Hill. The Seventeenth of
June is a great day iu Massachusetts, rank
ing next to independence Day, and occa
sional celebrations occur throughout other
New England States. No especial notice of
the anniversary was taken here, although the
event which marks the day was individually
remembered by a great many people, who
feel a pride in the anuiversarv, and favorably
remember the parades, the dinners, the ora
tions, the halls, the fireworks, and the other
features of the old celebrations.
Later from Augusta.— The steamer Ama
zon, Capt. Geo. C. Dunwell, from Augusta,
arrived here on Saturday night last at ten
o’clock. The Amazon brought down one
hundred and fifty bales of cotton, and two
hundred and thirteen cases of Confederate
clothing. The Amazon passed, bound up to
Augusta, the steamers Staudisu, Leesburg
and Jets Davis. The Confederate gunboat
Macon, under the command of Capt. Philpot,
w; s passed, thirty miles below Augusta; her
machinery was out of order, aud the Amazon
supplied her with an engineer.
Confederate Clothing. —The steamer
Amazon, which arrived in this city on Satur
day night, from Augusta, brought as a por
tion of her cargj., two hundred and thirteen
eases of Confederate clothing. These goods
were captured at Augusta by General Upton,
and consist of grey coats and jackets, grey
and blue pants, and cotton under drawers.
Several of the boxes, on the down trip of the
Amazon, were broken into and robbed; the
parties who committed this offence will be
brought to justice. What disposition will be
made of the clothing is not yet known. The
consignee, Capt. S. S. StaiT, Chief Quarter
master, is storing it in a fire-proof building.
Hon. A. H. Stephens. —A correspondent
of the Tribune writes that Mr. Stephens, for
him, is in tolerable health, and his cye9 are
keen and pleasant to look upon, and add 9 ■
“He is very agreeable in conversation, and
earnestly desires a permanent restoration of
the Union. He says the advice and warning
which he gave to the people of Georgia be
tore she seceded were such as a wise man
ought to give, majority overruled
him. He concedes that slavery is at an end
in tli is country. ”
Foreign- Cotton. —The National Intelli
gencer say 9 the most sagacious merchants
anticipate in consequence of the great in
crease in the growth of cotton in India and
Egypt, a reduction in the price to ten cents
a pound in another twelve month. Should
this anticipation prove correct, it will 'ef
fectually close up the cotton trade of India,
inasmuch as the inland transportation there
is so expensive as to preclude Its export at so
low a figure. Then will come the turn of
America once more.
Resigned. —Capt. C. W. Kennedy of the
Is6th New York Regiment., and Assistant
Adjutant General, <jn the Staff of the 3rd
Brigade, 2d Division, 19th Army Corp(, had
his resignation accepted a few days since,
Capt. Kennedy, for over two years, was in the
U. S. service, his gentlemanly conduct won
for him a host of friends, to his brotner offi
cers, lie was a true friend, and they regret
that he returns to his home in New York.
Hioh Compliment to Gen. Birqe.— ln the

Gen. Birge’s bravery and efficiency in the
field, and the ability he has shown in com
mand of various Posts and Districts, fully en

Casjc Reeds. —The swamps of Georgia
and South Carolina abound in cane reeds.
Prior to the war they entered largely in com

Good News for the Troops at Hilton

will doubtless be received with loud mas by
the noble fellows who have so long and so
patiently waited for their justly earned re

be life and jollity at the Island City.
Sweatnam’s Varietiks.— The combination

How to Live in Charleston.— The weath

we people in Charleston are disposed to pass
our time without indulging any violent ex

learning the reason of the exodus of so many
of the inhabitants from the city at this sea
son of the year, in •former times. On Mon
day, the 12th inst., the thermometer in the
afternoon indicated 86 degrees. With this
state of the atmosphere who can blame peo-
Ele for wishing to repair to some cool resort?
ight suits are iu great demand. At present
Charleston is a poor place for the wearers of
paper collars. That article of apparel can
scarcely be recognized after an hour’s use.—
Linen collars are better adapted to the pur
pose, but even they sueeumb to the wilting
process in a very short time.
Within a day or two we have seen pedes

Union Meeting at Oranqkburo, S. C.—A
public meeting has recently been held at
Orangeburg C. H, relative to the best means
of getting the State restored to her former

that the meeting was large and unanimous in
its desire to have peace ratified by seeing the
State occupy her old position.
A Carolinian in Illinois.— An old resident
and well known citizen of Charleston, Mr. F.
H. Whitney, writing an account of his trip to
a friend in this city, says :
“What would a South Carolinian think to
see a farmer riding on a pough, driving two
or four horses; turning over two furrows at
once, with a large umbrella over his head,
and a box ot sugars alongside of him. This
is what you can witness here. The com
planter drops two rows of com at once, four
kernels in a spot. One team of horses, witt
a boy that can drive, will do as much work
as a man, aDd will plant fifteen acres ot corn
in a day. Such are the results of farming by
machinery. No hand labor is required. The
only labor is to gather the crops. Grain
enough is wasted here to feed the whole of
It was a noble sight as we passed along the
railroad to see the vast herds of cattle, hoi9es,
sheep, lambs and hogs. Some of the prairie
lands were black with them. They appear
to herd in droves. The greater portion of
the cattle Were large fat oxen, weighing about
fifteen hundred pounds each.
As to the health of this country, I find eve
ry one I meet, old and young, presenting a
hale, hearty, robust appearance. There is a
ready sale lor produce. We are much pleas
ed with the prospect before us.”

Prices. —Every one asks why the prices
of necessaries of life have not decreased in
proportion to the fall in gold. To this ques
tion w'e can give no satisfactory answer. The
fact is clear, that w'hile the depreciation of
the currency was alleged as the reason for
the great increase of prices in 1884, though
the currency ha 9 now’ nsen in.value, until it
stands quite as high as it did before that in
crease, no corresponding reduction has been
made by dealers in provisions. This fact is
forcibly put by the United States Economist,
in a comparison between the currency price
of provisions at two periods, viz : Sept 6th,
issyad May lain l ß ea, gold selling at
1311.. <m each at lho»o datei Tho Econo,

These figures show that the price of provi
sions is by some means kept up, far above
what it should be in proportion to the price
of gold. The causes of this phenomenon a
great many people would bo glad to see satis
factorily elucidated. We presume that the
comparative scarcity of labor in farming dis
tricts in part accounts for it, and that cause
now that the war is over, we may soon hope
to see removed iu some measure,
