Effects of the Freshet
   The recent freshet was general throughout the State and extended to the South-west. The damage has been heavy to wheat, bridges, fencing, &c.
   The Shiloh cut, on the Blue Ridge Railroad, has been nearly filed by a land slide. This will delay the arrival of the cars at Walhalla for several months.
