THE RAILROADS. Condition of the Cattle. Mr. R. B. Wilson, who was sent out by the Northern Pacific road to investigate the con dition of the live stock along the line of that road, reports under date of February l.-t.from Miles City, that stock reports from the north side of the Yellowstone river are very favor able. The only loases are from wolves which ! are quite numerous. Young rattle particu- I krly have suffered. The winter has been I very- fine. Very little snow having fallen until February C>, when it commenced snow ing and continued for several days. Ten inches of snow fell in the Yellowstone valley but it has all disappeared, and cattle can now get the grass without trouble. I have met Mr. Teasdale, foramen for W. C. Con ners who put in 5,000 head of cattle on Powder river. He says the cattle arc in fine condition for that class. He has lost n-.tL ing yet and the cattle have not suffered for feed" or from cold weather at any time this winter and predicts that unless the weather should become very severe and the Bpring late and cold, his loss, need not ex ceed two per cent. Mr. Graham, of the stock firm of Johnson <fc Graham, reports very favorable as to the condition of the '-attic ou tin* Little Powder river, where their herd is l-<;ated. The weather there has been good, with but little snow. At present there is about six Inches on the ground. Cattle have not suffered from want of feed. Range cattle are fat and state cuttle are in good condition. Mr. Lewis, of the Pickering, Lewis Cattle Co., says their herds on the Powder river, below the mouth of Clear creek, he has nev er seen cattle looking better or less disposed to drift off. No losses have occurred in the herds of Carpenter dc Robertson, Cook & Anderson or the De Hart Live Stock company. The writer does not think that there will be any serious loss on cattle on ranges tribu tary to Miles City. There will be some loss on state cattle, but what it will be no one can tell at present. He thinks that range cut tle will come out in better condition than they did a year ago." The stockmen ate all in the best of spirits. Another New Railroad. [Lar&nore Pioneer 21st.] Mr. A. P. Hcndrickson returned to-day and from him we learn the real facts In re gard to this new railroad. The company was organized at Fargo January 20, and has ob tained a charter, which has been accepted by the board of directors. The charter author izes them to build and operate a line of rail way from Fargo via Larimore to the boundary line. Tbe following officers have been elected: President, Thos. S. Edison. Vice President, W. A. Kindred. Secretary, A. P. Hendrickson. Treasurer, W. ('. Woodruff. Messrs. Edison , and Hendrickson have been appointed right of way agents, who will begin at once to complete the right of way, which they begun some time since and in which they received such strong encourage ment. The road will be built by the Fargo, Lari more ifc Gorthcrn Railroad company, backed by eastern capital, and will be operated in conjunction with the Fargo Southern rail way. .Mr. Thos. S. Edison has just returned from Canada and the eastern states, where he secured $2,000,000 to complete the road bed, aud it will be ironed and operated by the company which has been organized and we are authorized to say this new company's back ing is a strong Chicago company, and one that will run its roads independent of any other, thus securing free competition. Also the fact that men prominently connected with the Fargo Southern arc on the board of directors of the Fargo, Larimore & Northern decides beyond a doubt that we are to have an independent outlet to Chicago and the east. The importance of this enterprise is hard to overestimate. It will be the making of the Elk valley and its beautiful city, and all will heartily c-ooperate in its advancement. One thing important must be known. There is no provision to purchase a right of way. This must be donated to the company or the road cannot be built. About this there will be no trouble' though, as all are anxious enough to see a competing railroad. Let everybody put a shoulder to the wheel, secure the right of way at once, and we will have another road to help ship next year's crop. Trying for a Better Position. Cincinnati, Feb. 25.—A meeting of the directors of the Ohio & Mississippi railroad was held here to-day. There were present Robert Garrett, Jas. Sloan, Jr., W. T. Mon tague, J. L. Donaldson, C. R. Goodwin, Edward Higgius, Jr., A. C. Crane, W. E. Guy, Judge A. B. Patterson, from Baltimore; Edward L. Whittaker, St. Louis; J. J. Jack son,. Parkersburg; W. T. McClintick. Chilli cothe, Ohio; J. M. Douglass, receiver, and W. W. Peabody, general manager. After a somewhat extended conference, resolutions were adopted, by a very decided majority, authorizing the executive and finance com mittee to dispose of the new five per cent, mortgage bonds of the company to an amount necessary to pay all arrears of indebtedness, so as to release the railway and other proper ty from the custody of the courts, and put the company again in control. Strong con fidence was expressed by the committee in their ability to place the bonds with very little delay. Provision was made for an early ap plication to the court for the proper order to restore the railway to the company, and for the settlement of the receiver's accounts. It is believed this valuable property will soon again be operated, free from restrictions, which necessarily trammel the receiver, and enable its managers to place it in a strong and independent attitude, so as to com mand the traffic to which the line is justly entitled. The Chicago & Atlantic Eastern Connections Chicago, Feb. 24.—There is a possibility that the Chicago & Atlantic will lose its east ern connection, now enjoyed in the New York, Pennsylvania & Ohio. If McHenry is successful in his suits, now pending in Cleveland for the possession of the latter, such will be the case. A well-informed rail road official in conversation yesterday, thought that the New York, Pennsylvania & Ohio would be able to continue its eastern business without interruption, even if wrested from the Erie, and would also mak satisfaetory arrangements for a western out let, though cut off from the Chi cago & Atlantic. "You know," he said, "that President Sloan, of the Lackawanna is anxious to get a western line, and if McHenry secures possession there is no doubt that ft will immediately be leased to the Lackawanna. The two roads might connect at Carry, Pennsylvania. Mr. Sloan needs the road while Mr. Jewett never cared for it, rathea pre ferring to . build a line of his own. At Mansfield, O., connections could be made with the Ft. Wayne and thus have a first-class line to Chicago. If McHenry is successful in his suits, aud I have no doubt that he will be, rapid changes will at once be made in the connection of the New York, Pennsylvania & Ohio. A Road Sold. Pittsburg, Feb. 25. —The reported sale of the Pittsburg & Western railroad was con firmed at a late hour to-night by Thos. M. King, one of the new directors.

A Postoffice Fight. [Washington Letter.] Among the president's nominations sent to the senate was that of Miss Melissa A. Pemberton to be postmaster at Fredonia, N. Y. Some discontent is expressed among the New York delegation at this selection. They' are understood to favor the claims of S. L. Wilson for the place. Wilson lost both legs in the war, and was for a long time one of the door-keepers of the senate, until the Democrats turned him out in 1879. He was warmly recommended by influential Republi cans, and it is said that his appointment was promised to them by the president. Some tima ago the friends of Miss Pemberton, who is a clerk in the postoffice at Fredonia, started a story to the effect that Wilson, if. he should be made postmaster, wouldturn out all present employes of the office, Miss Pemberton includ ed, and fill it with his friends. They got up a petition in her favor, and her brother, it seems, with this petition in his pocket, ar rived here a couple of weeks ago. To judge from to-day's nomination, his errand must have been successful. The end of the matter, however, has not been reached yet, and it seems more than probable that the soldier element, whose votes senators, especially candidates for the presidency, consider worth courting just now, will be put forward to use its Influence in the senate to prevent Miss Pemberton's confirmation. Senator Logan may be counted upon to exert himself for Wilson. There are others who are ready to assist him. Miss Pemberton's promotion, her friends say, would be in accordance with civil ser vice principles. They assert that she has ex perience, that she is competent and in every way fitted to discharge the duties of the oflice.

Another refugee from Tokar reports he met a rebel acquaintance .who told him the intention was to put all the garrison at To kar to death, except the gunners, after sur render, notwithstanding promises had been made. A spy sent to the friendly tribe brings information that the rebels had attacked a tribe and taken seventy-three prisoners and fifty grain-laden camels.
