The probabilities now nrn that both
the Cairo and St. Louis and the Cairo nnd
Vlnccnnes roads will bo completed within
eighteen months from this date.
The contractors of the Cairo and St.

Tho rnllroadfroniGrconflold' landing,

A meeting of tho sloe kholdors of tho
Cairo and Vinccnncs railroad company
ha been called to meet nt the olllce of tho
company in this city on December 0th, for
tho purpose of ratifying the uction of tho
board of directors in rcfcrcnco to certain
matters which haro not yet been made
public. Wo do not know, but presume,
this meeting will haro somj effect upon
tho question of "Road or no road!" and
that, If the notion of tho board Is ratlllcd,
work will bo immediately commenced.
We don't know, though. Wo nro out
guessing. "We llnd tho following paragraphs in
tho Joncsboro Oazetle of tho 4th, Inst. :
Tho contract for t-radinc six miles of
tho Cairo and St. Louis R. R.. between
Cairo nnd Jonesboro, wns let tho first of

There are two companies of engineers on
ino route, .vir jiaroer lias charge of the
north division from St. Louis to Mur
phy'boro, and Mr. McOrcgory from that
point to Cairo. Tho engineers nro ca
pable, nnd n oon as thoy can complete
the survey, tlio wholo line, we nre in
formed, will bo immediately placed under

feet, and a it is tho llrt railway con
structed upon this narrow une 'in the
state, no pains will bo spared to mako it
complete in every respect, nnd a pattern
ior tno many roods that will bo soon con
ducted on this gunu'o all over tho country.
Mr, Fercu'on, Chief oninocr of the
Cairo and St. Louis R. R., was in town on
Thursday, and gives n favorablo report of
the work on the whole line. The work of
construction will bo prosecutod from St.
