loons wero taken from under his pillow
and carried into another room, whore
they wero left after tho money was ex
tracted. Tho occupants of the room
where tho pants wcro found said thoy saw
n man about 2 o'clock in tho morning in
their room, and pointed the individual out
to the landlady at tho breakfast tMblo the
next morning. After tome "stir" nbout
tho matter, tho loser found his money
rolled up iu tho sheet in his bed. There is
no doubt thnt tho money was stolen, but it
is supposed that tho thief, after identifica

We And tho following information re
garding tho Cairo and St. Louis railroad,
in the Memphis 1 Appeal' of Juno 1st,
furnished by its St. Louis correspondent :
" I havo met with somo intelligent anil
practical men from the Northwest, who
gave me n great deal of valuable infor
mation upon the snbjcct of narrow guage
rnilronds. K. II. Pnyson, of Chicago, who
has rccontly spent nine months in Europe,
and who Isjnow building tho Northern Pa
cilic rnilrond four eight und u half guage,
is also building tho Cairo and St. Louis
railroad thrco feet guago and has a largo
interest in it. Ho seems to be thoroughly
acquainted with tho whole subject in its
practical bearings, and his opinions nro
worth moro than tho opinions of n thous
and men who know nothing about tho
system, oven if thoy do happen to be rail
road otllclals. Ho says the Cairo and St
Louis road will bo much tnoro costly than
tho ordinary narrnw.gu.ugo roads because
tho work is so heavy, being through n
vory rugged country, with nn immense
quantity of rock-cutting. Tho iron rails
will wolgh forty pounds to tlio yard, which
is much heavier than usual. Tlio
equipments aro Aery expensivo also,
being twonty-six ongincs and a
corresponding amount of rolling
stock. iThe road is built in this ex
pensive manneron account of tlio immense
business of n heavy character that it will
do from tho commencement, running as it
does, through coal-fields for sixty miles,
and its whole distance being only one hun
dred and fifty miles.
Notwithstanding tho costly nature of the
work, and its cxtensivo equipments, the
wholo cost of constructing, ironing and
equipping tlio road will bo only twenty
thousand dollars por milo net moro than
half what it would have been on n road of
n standard gungo through tho same coun
try. This rond is but tho commencement
of a systom of narrow-gtiugo roads that
will extend from St. Louis, through Mem
phis nnd Vicksburg to tho Gulf, If it can
succeed betwoen St. Louis and Cairo, its
profits will incrcaso evory mile it goes
