wiih the Cairo Fulton railroad that Is
scarcely of leas' importance than that pub.
lished by us yesterday concerning the
Cairo A Vlncennes road.
Messrs. Guthrie and Potts have effect
ed as arrangement with a Arm (of Brit
ish capitalists that will secure the Imme
diate commencement and early com
pletion of the Arkansas portion of the
C. A F. road. In pursuance of this ar
rangement Mr. Williams arrived in Now
York, one day last week, with two hun
dred ond fifty thousand pounds sterling,
in gold, (equivalent to about one million
and three quarters in greenbacks) with
which to commence immediate opera
tion!. A corps of engineers arrrived at
Fulton several weeks ago, and by this
time are well advanced towards Little
Rock with their survey.
The franchisee of the Miseouri portion
of the road are held by Col. Thomas
Allea. NegotlatioBs will be opened for
the purchase of these, so that the cntiire
line may be owned and operated bythe
same company. If they cannot be pur
chased on satisfactory terms, the fran
chises with which the company organ
ised under the general lawa of Missouri,
is clothed, will, moat probably, enable
the company to lectin all Uhe end at
which they are aiming.
This information wo receive in a very
direct manner, and believe it to bo en
tirely reliable. To no railroad in the
whole southwest have auch princely do
nations been made a are now held by
the Arkansas division of this road. The
federal land grant, at two dollars and fif
ty cents per acre would, of Itself, furnish
means sufficient to build and equip the
road. But, aa every acre of the land will
net the company at least live dollars,
and as the State of Arkansas has made a
liberal appropriation In the way of bonds,
there Is a pecuniary Inducement to build
tho road that capitalist can scarcely re
Hist. We, therefore, look forward to Its
early completion with confidence, tho
Missouri portion to Bird's Point at as
early a day as the portion within the
State of Arkansas.

Louisville road, about.thlrty miles from
Humboldt, it lain tho midst of oue of the

and of easy access to the business men of
Cairo. Wo should cultivate tho favor of
that people, and In no way can this be
moro eflectlvely done than by adver

Mr. Beers will call upon a number of
our business men for advertisements,

At a small town In Missouri, named
Granby, where Bill Laka'a circus held
forth on the 22d instant, a man by the
name of Jack Klllyon effected an en
trance into the pavllllon w thout paying
the price of admission. Li ko being in
formed of the fact seized R illyon by the
coat collar and forcibly cje :ted him. A
few minute afterwards K llyon bought
a tieket and entered the canvass. Ap
proaching Lake, who was talking to two
citizens of the village, he drew bis re
volver and fired, the ball taking effect
in Lnko's breast near the left nipple,
aud producing death In about fifteen
minutes. Lake fell forward on his hands
and exclaimed: "My God, boys, I am
killed carry me home." He wo con
veyed to his hotel, where he died imme
diately. Lake was notoriously rough and in
sulting; but in this case ho wa not to
blame. When last In Cairo his bearing
towards citizens was eo rough that only
one thing deterred many of them from
laying violent hands upon him, and that
one thing was fearl But in the present
case no blame attaches to him. Mrs.
Lake offers n thoug.ind dollars reward for
tho arrest of Klllyon, who, In tho con
sternation and uproar of tho moment,
made good his escape.
