Nothing. in the whole course of the war la Weetera Virginia, bu seemed so mysterious u the fact that tha enemy have ao rsrely interfarad with oar army telegraph lines. Through the vary oountry, along tha very roads on whieh the rebel guerillas hats beeu committing their oat rages. oar telegraph wires have been stretched; toey could be eat with perfeot impunity by the swarmiag seeeesieants in a dosen places slong everv mile; detection would be utterly impossible; jet direst communication baa been stopped but once between thia advance poet and Bull Town, Jacksonville, Westoa, Clarksburg and the whole extent of the loyal States. Nothing it easier tKtn fA Atlt tka wivaa' 1?1 ? - 2 ? ??? w?? ?? nnvo| iu uv ?uau murv iu* jury be don* to as How happens it, than, that the Tiralent secessionists nave not attempted to destroy oar connection with Clerksbars;? When, on the first day's march from Weston, a secession family eame oat to the roadside, where an office had been temporarily opened, and expressed astonishment because they didn't see the wire moving toward Clarksburg at all, when the operator pretended that he was sending news down there, and when an old ladj, at whose hoase a couple of as took dinner the next day, declared that she believed " it was all staff aboat sending letters on that little wire, because she had watched it for hoars, and hadn't seen no letter, nor anything like one, soin'along," and when another of the native! absolutely refused to touch tbe wire il for fear tbe lightning on it would comedown and kill him, I began to get some insight into the reasons that had operated to preserve the wire through this hostile but fearfully benighted region. , But when I wis told of the comfortable message that was sent to tb? only man who had cut the wire, and of its excellent effect, the matter became plainer. 'Squire Imboden, on whoa* farm we encamped before entering Bull Town, was known to be a violent secessionist. One night some 400 yards of the telegraph wire were cut out opposite his farm. Captain (iaines. whose company was charged with the duty of erecting and protecting the wire immediately sent word to Imboden that it didn't make any difference who cut the wire, but that if it was done again anywhere within three miles on either side of his place, his house should be burned, and he himself would be shot on sight. Three or four times every twentyr V ?!.- -? ?? - IVW UUU1S, oiuow ibo rcccipi UI IOII message, Imboden hu patrolled the whole extent of the six mile* of telegraph nearest his house, and very day or two he takes the additional trouble of sending word over to Sutton that the line is all safe ! The same Capt. Gaines was recently responsible for another act of deoision. Inoontestible proof was received, fastening the guilt of murdering the dragoon, whose death I mentioned the other day, on oertain guerrillas then in the neighborhood. A squad was instantly sent out to take them. The Captain gave the boys their instructions, but added, as thej starte d, "under the circumstances, bovs, I don't believe I want any prisoners." The boys found the guerrillas who had murdered our soldier, and were wearing the clothes stripped from his dead body, took them, but brought in no prisoners! A better disposition was made of those scoundrels than sending them to Columbus. The Captain's eompany returned duty yestardaj, going oat with Mr. Fuller, Superintendent of theMarietta and Cincinnati lin? ?? extend the army telegraph toward Summer ill* They ran it oat to the farthest pickets, Bin* mi lee from town, and then put an operator at the end of the line to transmit immediately to headquarters any observations the pickets might make, or any sudden alarm they might have. The enemy, it will be seen,would have small chance of surprising Gen. Reseorans at breakfast. As soon as we move again the telegraph corps will follow ua, and will be able to put up from fifteen to twenty milea per day. The army ia liardly likely to make a longer day's march than that. Accustomed, as a newspaper man must be to daily and hourly dependence upon the telegraph, habituated to relying upon it in every mergency, and to a far greater extent than tha public seems ever to appreciate, I oouteas that I cannot yet look upon the wonders it accomplishes without amasement. The other day, for example, through some misunderstanding of the Quartermaster at Clarksburg, it was discovered that the system of armv innMM from oar bate of operations at Clarksburg wm not properly arranged Gen Roseorans and hU Adjutant General croeeed from the marquee to the telegraph teat, on the mountain spur above Sutton, and aaid to tbe operator, " Call Clarkaburg. and tell Capt. Leio to oome into the office there." " Yea, air," ticked Clarksburg, and in a moment "Capt. Leib is here." Captain," aaid the Oeneral, "we want an expreaa meaaenger started with the mail every afternoon, immediately after the arrival of tbe train." The little instrument elioked oat the eessgn while the Oeneral was lighting hia eigar, aad almost before he had enjoyed tbe ftrst whiff, the Quartermaater at Clarksburg had answered, "I have done ao already." "But hare you arranged for freah horses every ten miles1" Cliok, click, olickeiy click; the operator leoka ap and says, " The captain repliea, 'ne, sir; I didn't understand that I had to de tnst.' " "Arrange for it at once, then," said the General, between the pafCi of hi* cigar; and as tha next eirrlet of smoke was curling upward, came tha answer, "It shall be done, air, without delay " There they stood?tt? General in the llttie telegraph tent, in the midst oi his a my, and faeing the enemy ; the Quartermaster in the sleepy old town of Clark*burg; with moan tains and rivers, and swarms of guerrilla* between them; yet the conversation continued ea easily ae if both were seated In tha General's marquee! The details were all completed; the yaarterm aster inquired: "Here you any furtheroommands, General?" "No mora good morning, oaptain," responded tha General, and ha returned to Ihis mar?aee. The cigar waa net yet half smoked! Is t any wonder that the benighted Secessionist* look upon the mysterious little wire that mamm their nrers Mid climba their moaotoina, at the bidding of the invading Yankeee, with raper> titiotu nw ??Corrw.

IDT rhjttatba ta Creeowand Tamon, Poland, "" U M"V* '?"''I % English nail American Bred Stock?Climate and Feed. [From the American StocJc Journal ] It Htmi the New York Stat* Society baa decided to admit imported cattle to op?n competition for the general premiums offered for the beat American-bred oattle in tb? same classes, or in three or four leading improved breeda so well known orer the older settled portions of the country. And, judging from the gratnlatorj ton* of a paragraph in alloaion to the fact, in the{/Onntry Gentleman, who asks, "Does imported blood degenerate on this side of the At* lantio," it seems to be taken for granted that the confidence exhibited by this proceeding, rests upon facts which tend to show that im uuneu luimni, n m?i ib wmui luomii, uv uui deteriorate. When, however, the faoU are correctly investigated, it will be found that imported cattle do, and eenerally matt degenerate, from the inevitable influences of climate and its cognate influences. There has of late, it is believed, been a large falling off in the numbers of imported cattle, which must be in the favor of Amerioan-bred animals, in reducing the numbers of their Competitors. Then the larger "imported blood" has been acclimated in home-bred animals, the more oomplete the subordination of it to our pecaliar climatio conditions; the more natural the mutual adaptation of animals and elimatic influences; the greater the immunity of the animal from transition and new and trjing climatic ordeals; and the greater his chances of success in competing with rivals of later and direct importation. Hence it will not onlj be no matter of surprise, but a natural consequence of advantage* of condition, if home-bred Deasts beat imported ones in to called even competition, but with raally better conditions in several particulars upon which success largely depends. And the native animal ought to beat, not only from the above cause*, but as an evidence of supporting home policy and preferring native Nor can I imagine any sound reason why imported animals from over the sea, should be allowed to compete at all. Scattering our forces too much is no real proof of either wisdom or strength; nor is it consistent with the examt>le of the beat English breeders. "Good workmen never quarrel with their tools," and if British enterprise has succeeded so well in working up ita best specimens of breeding from mere ordinary resources at their own doors, as is known to be the fact, why may not Americans aonquer in equal success from their greatly enlarged and superior resources and opportunities. I repeat, "good workmen never quarrel with their tools," nor necessarily require to fly off at a tangent and import the production of others skill. If we have not skill enough, importing will not augment what we have. dAf "there is no royal lead to learning," ao there :? ? -L:II s? i - T* * u uuu? hi ?ui id orecaiug. ii comes 01 natural capacity cultivated by experience; bat importation aliaa appropriating, ia opposed equally to the genius of original invention ana the persistency so peculiarly requisite to success in thorough breeding. In comparison with home breeding, ''imported blood is therefore of minor oonsequenoe, from almost any point of view. It is currently and I believe correctly reported, that Samuel Thorne, of Dutohess Co., has hired out two of his American-bred bulls to English Shert Horn breeders. Several years ago I predicted that, in otherwise equal conditions, while English animals, imported into this eountry must? aa it io w?u known tk*/ do?in most instances, deteriorate, Amerioan animals must from superiority, or at any rate, well defined distinctions of climata in England favoring tha production of greater weight and | dimensions, attain greater rise, and exhibit very clearly evidences of improvement due to the better conditions which such exported animals are there put into. Not, probably, as to salubrity of climate, exemption from disease, or general healthfulness; for these advantages are no greater?I think even less?in the British Islands than here on this continent. But the larger proportion of water in cured or o called '-dry* fodder, the greater suceulency of their roots and grassos, arising from their larger proportion of water as a component of th?m; and the much larger quantity of water vapor in the atmosphere of those Islands each and altogether tend to produce greater bulk and suoonlency equally in forage crops and roots, and in the animals, whose total growth is a merely transformed organic aggregation of such vegetable growth Like cause like consequence, aa an axiom pointing to a natural law, is also pretty clearly illustrated in the dry meat of our relatively dry climate, inoom - pari so ii wiin me juicy Deer, etc , so much abounding and so much esteemed on the tables of English epicures; and the absence of which is so Teelingly?doubtless in a double sense? lamented by Englishmen sojourners amongst as. A moist olimata, succuleat feed, and juicy meat, comprise a tripartite arrangement of conditions and effects which must.over continue to produce characteristic results in the live stock of that oeuntry. Mr. Thome's balls both go (I believe) to Qlouoestershire, whioh is a good grass oounty, ?Ae rich and fertile valley of the Severn ex* tending through the middle of it; and at the risk of failure, I here predict a satisfactory result from this exportation if no accident interfere. And I may further add that English breeders may and probably will import other breeding animals besides bulls, with the high? wb? j?ruu?wiiiij ui HuiiKiory improvement from such change and investment. At the tme time I wish to be understood, as not ascribing all the beneficial re nits from the use of Amerioan animals in England to any specific or peculiar quality dne to the blood or breeding of Amerioan stock; bat to impute the improvement whioh I confidently anticipate,chiefly and distinctly to the moUter feed and climate of the Island Nation, as being more oondacive to ioereaeed jaoinees in the meat, and generally to greater t.alk an<^ weight in the animal when broegfct to the shambles there, and to the difference above noted in food and air, it most be ooofecaed much of the msilot*nu* so often claimed, and admitted as a characteristic in AL l( t. 1 if ii ? ?} - m w? - - id? - ouaiidi quanuee or jsngnsn ettut, ti eloeelj related to, sad to * large extent olearljr da*.
