Southern Express Company.Some time since there was an effort made by some few discharged operatives of the Express company, to induce the impression on the public mind that it was a Yankee concern. So persistent were those aspersions, that many intelligent Southern men, not knowing the motives which prompted their circulation, were induced to attach some truth to the statements. At Columbus, Georgia, the Vigilance Committee, of which the Hon. Alfred Iverson is President, demanded of the agent of the company in that city a full exhibit of the names of its stockholders, their residence, the number of shares held by each, a copy of the charter under which they acted, and all other information calculated to afford a full exposition of their authority to claim to be a Southern Express company. The Vigilance Committee were in earnest, and may determined, if a satisfactory exhibit was not made, that they would close up the Express office, in that city, and by their example whose similar action to be adopted else where. The report of the committee we append. It is the death knoll to the efforts of the malingers of the Southern Express Company:
