Tlie Baltimore Sun of Weduesday says there have been rumors afloat in that city for several days that the Clyde syndicate which controls the Richmond and Dan ville Railroad system, have been figuring to make an alliance with steamship lines, so as jo establish permameut connection. The Central Railroad W)f peorgia, as is kuQWn has its steamship service, and the Clydes hold the balance of power in the York River and one or two other- water lines that connect with their railroads A Richmond & Danville official, in con versation, said that the matter of water connections has been informally discuss ed, ami he-believes it will be settled the current year.

The reports have named the old relia ble Merchants and Miners' Transporta tion Colnpany of Baltimore, with its doz en steamships and $2,000,000 of capital stock, as the corporation which the Cly de syndicate would like to buy their way into. Mr. George J, Appold, president of the steamship company and one of its large stockholders, recently, in answer to direct questions as to how much of truth there was in the statements that the syn dicate were43gming to control his 11 uie, said: "There is positively nothing feasi ble in anything that has transpired. ! I do not like to talk about it, because some of our people might believe there is real Iv something in the rumors afloat. Mr. Clyde called to see us and 'asked if an amount of the stock a large amount could be bought. He was told that 5 we -are not so positively weddd to the old line that some price' would not buy its control.- Almost all property can lie reached at some price, I assure you, and that isxall there is for me to 'say.

Davidge then took his position in front of the jury and opened his Speech with a disclaimer of any intention to make a set speech, but expressed his simple desire to render the jury what aid he could in their present solemn duty. The time had now come in this tn- al when the jury were to become fac ac. ,ity tors.

Cape Fear and Y. V. Railroad. 9-. Greensboro Patriot A letter from Dr. Canedo, Jan. 9th, received here yesterday, says that the contract for the purchase of the Cape Fear & Yadkin Valley Railroad has been signed by the Syndicate and for warded to Governor Jarvis. This I bee-ins to look like business. Some to iterations in the original charter will have to be made, which will require --!-l 1 TI.Io Intuitu. a special session pf the Legislature, and it will devolve upon Governor Jarvis to issue the call.

The injured leg is not to be blamed. The three partners who owned the three legs with which the cat rau to the cotton will pay the whole value of the bales te the partner who was the proprietor of the injured leg.'" Tlie discovery of a deserted city, sixty miles long, cut out of the rock face of a winding cliff, rewarded the efforts of Mr.-Stevenson's Smithsonian Institution exploring party during its researches iu New Mexico and Arizona the past season. This is by far the most itnporant find yet made among the ancieut haunts of the cliff dwellers. Some of the houses con tain four or five dwellings one ou top of the other, and on the plateau above cliff were found many ruins of temples of wor ship built of well eut square stones. A com pa risen of the collections of pottery aud implements gathered in the cliff houses by the exploring party with those obtained in the Pueblo villages strength ens the theory that the Pueblo Indians are the degenerate dsceudants of the once powerful race that built the ruined cities of the plains, and then, retreating before some more warlike foe, carved out these singular dwellings on the sheer walls of dizzy precipices, and found in them it may be for centuries,fortresses and homes. Perhaps the hieroglyphic inscriptions seen by Mr. Stevenson will one day be deciphered and be found to contain tlie tragic history of -the wasting away by the wars and famines of this ill-fated peo ple who, like the coneys of the Bible, made the rocks their refuge.
