CINCINNATI, DANVILLE AND NASHVILLE RAIL ROAD.—At a special meeting of the two Boards composing the City Council, convened by Mayor HOLLINGSWORTH, yesterday, at the request of a number of the members and citizens, a message was read from his Honor, in relation to the present unsatisfactory condition of our northern connexions by rail, and suggest the propriety of sending a delegation to Cincinnati for the purpose of aiding in the effort to build a Railroad from Cincinnati to Nashville, via Danville, in order to have a better connexion between the North and the South, so far as the coming trade is concerned, than we have at present.
After some discussion in the Board of Aldermen, Ald. Cox offered a resolution to appoint Gen. W. Barrow, Col. V. K. Stevenson, Dr. C. K. Winston, George Maney, H. C. Seymour, James m. Hamilton, R. C. McNairy and Mayor Hollingsworth, a Committee to visit Cincinnati and confer with a committee there, on the subject; which reolution was adoped, and forwarded concurred in by the Common Council unanimously. We understand the Commmittee wil be in Cincinnati on Monday or Tuesday next.
