Ilackman: MY DEAR SIR—I arrived hero today and am authorized to say that wo will begin our road at St. Charles, provided your people guarantee us free right of way from the Wabash yards to Green's Bottom, or to refund us what it costs us when the track is laid over tho route. We want to begin as soon as possible to got ready. I wired you today, as I agreed. I have written Mr. Clark to help you all he can in the matter, and where payment is to be made yon will do well to agree as to tho amount as far as possible. Yours truly, J. T. K. HAYWARD. This oorrobates tho information we published last Monday. As the proposed route into St. Louis" for this road, from the west, was via Howell's Ferry, ten miles southwest of St. Charles.it is-evident that the company intend b«ilding to Alton. If they did not they would not begin work at St. Charles; in fact, under the charter acquired from tke Short Line road, would not enter St. Charles at all.

T1IE FIRST ALTON BOAT. "So you want to know something about tho first boat m the Alton and St. Louis trade, do youP" said the veteran steamboat King, Capt. Wm. V. Lamothe of Uppor Alton, to a Post Dispatch reporter. "The boat's name was the Luella, and she was a stern wheeler. That was forty years ago. It was my first attempt at the steamboat busN ness, and looked to me at the time as a very risky one. "1 had all of niy little fortune invested in a little store close to the boat landing at Alton. Just after I had opened out along came a minister who had been trying river Jife. Ho had lost money, got tired and booome disgusted and wanted me to lift the elephant off his hands. I was ambitious, but that was not the money. What was I to do? "Tho problem was to me then like tho Inter State Commerce puzzle is to some now. 1 thought the matter over, struck a scheme, and fitted a key to it. The minister wanted $1,000, $800 cash the balance in sixty days with a trust on tho boat. I compromised on $500 cash and balance in ninety days. How did I get tho $600 without selling out or giving a trust on my store? I canvassed my friends in Alton, getting $26 from this one and $30 from another, and m a few hours had tho $500, Nor did one man know that I had borrowed from tho othor. I paid the money, started the Luella in the Alton and St. Louis trade the next morning, and in a month paid all indebtedness to court and creditors. That is the storv in brief." On next Sunday tho Wilson and llankin,Minstrels will take tho steamer Spread Eagle for St. Louis. This is tho finest Minstrel Co. that has ever visited Alton. This evening's packets are tho Spread Eagle, for Grafton and the Pittsburg, for Wabasha. At Marsh's Drug Store YOU MAY FIND Fountain Rubber Syringes.
