Progress of the Southern and Atlantic Telegraph Line.


THE Southern and Atlantic Telegraph Company have actively recommenced the extension and construction of its lines. The section between Selma and Mobile, Ala., upon which the poles have been set and the insulators put on, is being wired, and will shortly be completed and in operation to the latter important point. It is understood that this company is meeting with very encouraging success, and that the extension of its lines south is watched with interest and cordially welcomed by the people of that section, who have hitherto been entirely dependent upon the Western Union Company for telegraphic facilities.
