Wo are glad to loam that this hlghlv im
nortant tirojcct is making most favorable
progress. A gentleman who accompanied the
Cairo directors on a tour of inspection, last
Tuesday, informed us yesterday that tho work
will bo finished to the crest of Logan's hill by
tho first of February, und that tho force of
hands arc working how at tho foot of tho
bluff. Tho tlmk-r, to tho width of sixtr feet,
is cleared from tho runt'? of the road, which
now proenU u clear, open vista, wiMi gcntlo
curve.-, ns far as tho eye can reach. Tlicro Is
an abundance of gravel directly along the
line, nnd this will be generously employed in
tho grading. A four foot embankment ncrb'S
