A contract baa lately been signed
between the directors of tbe St
Gotbard Railway, Switzerland, and
M. L. Favre, of Genoa, for tbe bor
ing'of a new railway tunnel through
the Alps, which promises to surpass
anything of the kind yet attempted.
The length of the tunnel will be a
little more than nine miles. Cost
10,000,000. The work is to be finish
ed within eight years ; and if sooner
finished the contractor la to receive
$1,000 a day tor each day in advance
the contract time. If the com
pletion of the work is from any
canto delayed beyond tbe contract
time, 11,000 a day are to be forfeited
the delay reaches beyond aix
months, tbe forfeit is then to be ia
creased to 12,000 a day. The con
trator deposits $1,000,000 as security
fcr tbe faithful performance of the
work. If the delay exceeds the con
tract time beyond one year, the con
tract is to be broken and the com
