The Cairo and St. Louis railroad havo
just received two now locomotives built
expressly for this road. Thoy nro larger
than any locomotives formerly used on
narrow-guacjo ltncs,boing twenty-Ova tons
with three driving wheals uud combining
great power. Ono of theso now locomo
tives, a very handsome display of inn
chanlcal art, bears tho namo of 31. 0
Crawford. "Wo admired tho locomotive,
for its powor and benuty,but nfter looking
at the name wo admired It tnoro. Tho
namo is ono that wo aro all proud of, and
this engino is destined to bo n favorito
among tho powerful boautios of this rnad.
"Wo hopo that like tho ono ot whom it
boars tho name, it may never run off tho
track or fail to do Its duty. Murphys
Col. Taylor, J. II. Oborly and Judgo
Crawford havo stood liy tho Cairo and St.
Louis railroad through good and evil ro
port, and tho contractors, A. H. Pay son
A Co., could not do loss than to compli
ment them as above. But compliments
are "too thin" sometimes ; and if tho con
tractors would pay their debts and put tho
road through to Cairo, it would ploao tho
people of this county much better,
I Jonesooro uazcllo.
Exactly. "Wo havo sympathised with
Messrs. l'ayson Si Canda. Wo hopo thoy
may bo able to finish tho road; but wo
must have other assurances than their
promises that thoy are going on with tho
work. If they cannot comploto tho road
and comploto it, too, within a reasonablo
timo why den' thoy say so ? For ono,
we lave about reached tho end of our
itrlng of paiionce, and will
cot consent to any lurlbcr ox
tension of tho time in which to finish tho
work. If tho road is not complutod by
the first of January, tho dlroctors should
refuse to give tho contractors tnoro time.
They cannot complain that thoy have been
crippled by any a:tion of tho company,
and they should now cither bo compelled
to Immediately do something to raUo tho
necessary moans to perform thoir part of
ho contract, or all .their rights under it
should be'forfeltod. This railroad sick man
has been doctored bonostly according to tho
books, but ho don't seem to improve
much, Tlie heroic troatment is rrtl that it
left. It may kill tho poor follow, but wo
would rather attend his funoral than loaf
any longor around his sick couch, from
which he seems unable to rUo. If nnv
railroad doctor in Cairo brieves ho knows
a remedy that will bring our tick man
ont, ho can havo our placo at tho couch,

tive, and with all this receive alio our
