From the Charleston Mercury
March 6, 1861
The Blue Ridge Railroad
   The grading on the railroad between Walhalla and Pendleton is nearly all done, with the exception of the "Shiloh Cut," which seems to have been an Egyptian task.
   The bridge across Seneca will be completed by the middle of March, so say some of the workmen, and we think it quite probable, as they have reached the water by this time.
   The greater part of the timbers have been laid down ready for the iron.
   The depot at this place is up, and we hope the time is not far distant when the snorting of the iron horse will be heard here contiguous to the mountains.
