Mr. Jack Wyly Is charging tole for
creeuing the pontoon bridge lately
built across the Macona at the "Corbint

or fifteen wagons that were coming
to Providence went to Ashton, tweoty
miles further away, rather than pay
for crossing. The merchants of the
town subscribed a hundred dollars
iowards openting up the road that
leads to the Macon and Mr. Matheson
furnished lumber enough to build a
large bridge across Joe's bayou, withl
the understanding that Mr. Wyly was
to fix the crossing at Corbin's ferry
and cut out the road. If this is a fact,
we do not thitk it is treating the
mnerchants and Mr. Matheson right,
as they expected to be repaid hy the
trade that would come tromn West
