reliable authority, of the wrecking of a
freight train on the C, A. & T. 1!. It., and
iNo of a ''hitch" that had occurred by
reason ofa "wah out" between Poplar
Iilulfs and Charleston. From the follow
ing letter from Mr. C. YV. Heqiiemhourg,
agent of the road iu tills city, It appears
that our informant wu mistaken, and
we are pleaded to make the correction, as
the road mentioned has been singularly
free from accidents since Its completion:

Kditoii llULi.r.TiN Dear Sir : In your
"Weekly" of the 13th Inst., you Mute
that a freight train was "wrecked badly"
on the C, A. it T. Uallroad, near St.
Francis, and that paengers were trans
ferred from trains meeting nt the wreck.
Tills Is entirely wrong. There hah never
been a wreck on tills division of the Iron
Mountain Railway. The same paper lias
an account ofa "hitch" on the road, and
ol a train "stranded somewhere betwren
Poplar Bluffs and Charleston." The
'hitch" did not occur betwren tlicso sta
tions. An extraordinary Hood iu Cane
creek damaged the road six miles south
of Poplar Illufl", so that one irai- did not
run through to Arkansas and Texas.
Your Informant was wrong, also, In
saying that u luidgo was burned near
Belmont on the Iron Mountain Railway.

From Colonel Andrews tho contractor
we received much valuable Information.
He has taken tho contract for the whole
work, and will sublet It hi small lots,
thus permitting persons of limited means
to take sub-contracts. Cash will bo
promptly paid for all work done, im
mense quantities of materials will be re
quired; of stone alone not less than 1W,
The work at the Pass will be done by
persons acclimated, which will give em
ployment to very great numbers of our
unemployed laborers. Ho will begin
practical operations as soon as the engi
neers making 'survev have connilete.l
their work, which will ho probably hv
Friday next. Tho timber contracts will
bo lot at once, and thu work will he
pushed with that rapidity which ample
means and enterprise will permit.
So far as tho progress of the great
work- Is concerned, there wero no great
discoveries to lie made. Botli Captain
Fads and Col. Andrews, aro very sail
guluo of success, and that In a much
shorter tune than thu contract allows.
They expect to make thorough and ex
tended preparations before commencing,
aud after that will nusli tho work for

barges will be brought, probably from
Pittsburg, for tho transportation of stone,
mid a large supply accumulated at thu
head of the pass, us a sort of reserve,' so
that t hero may be no delay by any accident

day morning these early birds opened
our hi full chorus, and such a concert was
never listened toby the wharf-boat boys
before. There were nearly 200 birds, each

of Nashville, who has lost his health, and
Is traveling by order of his physicians.
They advised him to seek some other em
