We understand that the organization of the Southern line of telegraph, beginning at Alexandria, was completed yesterday by the selection of Dr. W. S. Morris, of Lynchburg, Va., as President, and J. R. Dowell as Superintendent. This line is now entirely distinct and disconnected from the line from Washington North. The wires between Alexandria and Washington have been taken down, and there is no connection between Alexandria and Washington. The officers selected are Virginians, and sound to the core. The most perfect confidence may be placed in them, and in their zeal and devotion to the Southern cause.
