THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 5, 1865. Letter from John Happy. Special Correspondence Daily Telegraph.] Nashville, Oct. 1st, 1805. . Oh! Scissors! Thus I knew you in revo lutionary days, and thus I apostrophize you still. I fancy you, presiding gening over the eo.l'-!now ot the Telegraph, divin'AjB«Mst the like a veritable ]iUr <tl, and, with dis’efYe. *qks and has turned out a failure, for this year at least, ..^Sfied oculars.

Now that the Atlantic submarine telegraph,.; world, is rapidly approaching completion! So absorbingly has public attention been. ) reeted to the ATiantie route, that the overiv communication has been altogether ioR- of. This line wlfTconnect London York, eta St. Petersburg in RitssinT^nd’San Francisco and St. Louis in the United States. From San Francisco the line will lie carried through Oregon, Washington territory, and British Columbia, int.ysthe Russian posses sions on the northen coast of America.— From this exlfPms end of the American con-1 municipal election. The race was full and *'stries golden opinions of all sorts of peo- m II shall endeavor, for once, to be dignified in us^epistle. I know, scissors, that thou art a •olemn ogre, about business, no matter how ueh of geniality is known and acknowledg- 1, by an admiring world, in thy composition; that you seldom “crack a smile" or anything else without mnture deliberation. Thus pre facing I shall endeavor to gossip you with news, the on Jits of the hour, and the “situa tion." Yesterdav wc were nil excitement about the tinent. the liri? will IV submerged and con nected with tfuf Asiatic shore; the intervening distance being four hundred miles. In Asia the line (via the river Amoor) will lie taken up by the Russian officers, and con structed all the way to St. Petersburg. A late California newspaper mentions the departure of fhe bark Golden Gate, bound for the shores of Behring’s straits, with Col. Bulkely on board, as superintendent of the American portion of the enterprise. It will thus be seen that by means of this overland route, all the cities of tho Union will be placed in telegraphic communication with Asia and Europe. It is presumed that the line will ho in running order by next summer. ' EPISCOPAL RE-UNION NORTH AND •- SO.UTH. Our renders will remember the model epis tle penned a week or two ago, by that “old man eloquent” and Christian Bislioya Elliott of Georgia, on the subject of re-union be tween the Northern ant] Southern branches of episcopacy, severed as they were at tho be ginning of the war. Tin- episcopalian bishops North, have just been sitting in convention on that question, and seem to have adopted for guidance, the suggestions thrown out. by the bishop of qur State. Bishop Pcn-rER of New York, tvaase- leotcd as spokesman on the occasion, and de livered an address breathing throughout the essential spirit and meaning of Christianity, that of peace and good will among men.-— Bishop Potter declared he was uttering the sense of the assembly, when he gave the as surance that all Southern delegates should be treated with every possible kindness and af tentidn, and that the elections of the bishop ‘ of Alabama, '.afld.Ajkayisas, were to he pro nounced valid, and in due form. The newly elected bishop of Tennesse, Dr. Quintaun (well known to our people, as act ing Chaplain in the Confederate service) was ushered in and received with the most dis tinguished consideration. This feeling of harmony, and conciliation characterized the meeting throughout and will go far towards healing those theological dissensions, which three years ago were believed tn have erected an impassible barrier, between Northern and Southern episcopalians. England and Canada. All the schemes recently proposed by Can adian ministers, 1 with the design of extricat ing the province from its fiscal embarrass ments, are the subject of discussion in Eng land, but meet with little favor, unless we except the plan of confederation. The pro ject of an inter-colonint railway meets with a frigid shoulder from the London Timet, which sees no reason why England should burden itself to. the extent of $46,000,000 for the benefit of a remote dependency which contributes “not a shilling to our revenue nor a man to our army.” The propesed line is regarded as nothing more than a gigantic exaggeration in every respect of that stupen dous folly, the Gmnd Trunk railway, by which England Imught its experience so dear ly and to so little purpose. The London Times says: The truth Is that we have our choice of two courses of policy with regard, to Canada—a warlike and a pacific, a retrograde and pro gressive policy. \Ye may set ourselves to raise np a rival power to the United States, and in order to defend that power trom their attack, may plunge it into such inextricable financial difficulties as to deprive it of all at traction for the intending emigrant, nnd even to drive out of it much of the ]H>pulntion which has already chosen it ns a home. We may look on our colony ns n military position to lie defended—as a Roman ro/onia planted ns a menace or a curb to a people, must lie drilled and fortified, and kept open an d never did Nashville before give promise during the hjclemencies of a Siberinu winter, of a brisker fall trade. ut whatever <%st to the mother count cy, tout .

The vote of the ‘ city footed ns many as 3,832, inclusive of the privileged few who were nble to procure certificates to vote, and resulted in the election of IV. Matt. Brown, Esq., a stiring live man of the old whig school of politics, and our former United States district marshal for Tennessee, under Taylor’s administration; All passed off smoothly and the mayor elect handsomely en tertained a large party of friends at his resi dence last night. The Tennessee legislature meets to-morrow; and its deliberations will lie watched with intense interest, not only from allparts of the State, but front the' Whole country, or' at least that portion of it where exists a* genuine spirit of conservation and sincere desire to rfep a restored Union and a peaceful country. * jl have had interviews with several of the mem bers who talk rationally, and promise prom isingly. The disfranchise act of the last ses sion, was an odious feature, and strong and earnest hopes are entertained that it will bb repealed. The eopiplexion of things have materially changed since that was born, and there is belief that it will yet tie strangled in its infancy, Nevertheless the parties exclud-i ed from franchise privileges affect the suhlS- mest indifference as to the result. The ma jority of “refuggys” are busy witli the more important consideration's of bread and meat and do not care to vote, and like the man old Noah is said to have refused passage on his ark, they “don’t believe it’s going to lie much of a shower anyhow.” Governor Browulow is here, and to judge from the tone ofliis closet converse,!!; emphatically down on negro suffrage. YOu mar look' for n little characteristic strong Saxon, and a few philip pics against things generally in Iris message to-niorrow. On dit—that Iris son General James B. Brownlow will, lead to the alter a lovely arid accomplished daughter of “old Williamson,” next Tuesday evening. The fair bride is Miss Belle Cliffe, daughter of Dr. Diih Cliffe, one of fhe most celebrated sur geons in the west. Among the lately returned old residents here, I noticed yesterday on the streets Gen erals Frarik Cheatham and Wm. B. Bate, and Governor Foote of Canada memory. The latter is somewhat “rg-grous” over the late Jew-dah P. Benjamin letter from London, and declares lie will write a reply thereto, which will doubtless appear in the Dispatch of to-morrow. There are now five daily papers in Nash ville, so you may see there is still nerve left in our old Banner to bravely breast the tide of sueli a competition. They are all. pretty clever journals, too, considering their circum scribed political limits,and one of them, which is a German paper, is like our own bantling, a new Richmond in the field. The theaters are doing a living business, with the Mitchells, (sisters of the little Pro tean “Maggie”) at the old theatre, and a fe male Ravel, who is starring at the new tem ple of Thespis. In addition, we have Pol lard’s Varieties in South Nashville, with the Lamarrox sisters^ and a “free-and-easy” bal let, now and then on Cherry street; and then, again, ye gods; and little fishes, we. are to have a “cir-ourions” next week. Nashville is nlreadv beginning to recover her wholesale trade and her,former commer cial prestige. The grocery market here. is said to be better than it ever was before, arid interested parties declare, and we have,; ,rba-< son to credit the assertion, that goods eanilte purchased here at rates ‘absolutely under the •New York and Cincinnati quotations. We are bound to be “some” in a commercial wjiy Alabama Convention.

In every clime, wherever the feet of men have trod, have these people gathered to do honor to the Lord their Grid. ' The reason why two days are celebrated is Iieeause it seems that among the ancient Jews there was a dispute with regard to the time, one; party contending that it, was on one day, and the other that it was the next following. Not lie-' ingiible to fix upon tile dai*[ J thev agreed to celebrate both. Christians would perhaps have fought river such a point orntany rate, would have established different churches.— How distant through the vista of buried age* seems the time since the date of the Jewish esri ? lYHrit changes have Occrtrfcd ? What empires have arisen, florirished, amd passedawayl , Five thousand years have rolled away, and the Hebrew* are now the only people Who will still preserve the memorials of the first ages of i the world. On- the Egyptian plains, amid the Arabian wilderness, among'the mountains of Palestine, long before q,, single stone was placed in* Rome; aye, even before the Parthenon win oonceivfctl'iof'Greece known, did, these people celebrate 'their Rosh Hashuna; and on down through the (gisty ages that crowned the glory-trine of Tyre and Sidoii, rif Sardia :'oid Plm‘riCci:l.

A irlx KILLED Ills 'wife FOR PROVE;* «K- " FAITHFUL. But a few days has elapsed since we an nounced one of the most horrible wife murders ever recorded, and yet in that short space, we are again called upon to chronicle another of those thrilling trage dies that make humanity shudder. In order to state the facts plainly to our readers, it is necessary to advert to tbe early’ history and marriage of the parties to this terrible affair. A young man named James Garrett, of prepossessing appearance, and about twenty-eight years of age was em ployed by the government in the corels at this place, and labored in this capacity dur ing the last ‘winter. In hia association*, he became acquainted with a young and beautiful courtezan named Myra Severe, and becoming enamored of her, married the idol of his affections in due form of law,being wholly cognizant of her previous career of Jewdness. Tlie young man, no doubt, hoped to reform the young girl; and to this end re moved to Gallatin. After living unhappily, as might be expected, for some months, the young wife manifested a strong desire to re visit tlie city, and prevailed upon her hus band to bring her here, promising faithfully to return with him at an appointed time.— They came, and after a reasonable visit, Myra had agreed to, meet her husband at the bridge, crossing the river, and accompa ny him home. Tlie fond, but foolish hvrihand was on the spot at the hour desig nated, but his unfaithful wife failed to ar rive. Time passed, and still she lingered, until the husband gave her up in despair.— The fair but frail young woman had fallen in to tlie embraces of her old friends, and vr»* reveling in crime, until she became intoxicat ed in her wild passion and excitement, and entering, forgot the duties she owed to her lawful husband. On the following day, Garrett set out in search of hit wife, Myra, anil found her in a house situ ated in an alley to the reai'of the corner of Summer and Jetlerson streets, near Ger mantown. no had' learned all, and was driven to desperation and' madness. De begged her to go home with bun, but she re fused. saying that il was her fixed purpose to remain in the city with one x)f her former friends. The infuriated husband tlr.'.t made search for the object of his wife's affections, iiu'endlng to kill him on first sight. Tn this he failed, and tlien re* irted to thedi-sperawact of murdering his wife. He went to thehoujeabout 1 o’clock yesterday afternoon, and drawing liispislril, sbnt the frail young Wife six times. The 11 rat shot grazed her chin, the second inflicted a flesh wound in the abdoiniual re i gioits,* ,1 ttie third'' enn-nst her right hand, paaaingrtrpward through the. arm. the fonrtli penetrated her right breast, the iil'ih pssaed through her right lung, and. the sixth through the left arm, entering her left side arid penetrating the heart, producing in stant'death; ‘ The Wounds were examined by Dr. W.

This ease is of such a character as will admit of no comments' and we leave our readers to form: their own conclusions. Garret' stated to tho recorder after his arrest that he had no objections tq being hung onthespot, and was driven to that point, of desperation that ttnowB 'no' consequences. He begged, how ever, that the aflair would never come to hi* mother's ears. The ease will be fully.inves tigated. arid we will give the entire detail* of the tragedy in St'iew days.—LovisvilU Jtrur- naLl !. >--.ii* . d of. ’ -i .•rtio5.,.i; id .. ■> ' :,r. •• nffiAi ,
