The Louisville Courier-Journal says:
'Bishop Wightman, of the Methodist
Church Soutti, ia dangerously ill at
Charlotte, N. C." Evidently the item
was taken from The Observer, but
the Bishop is not in Charlotte, nor was
it so stated. It is to be presumed that
Bishop Wightman is at his home, as
he has been sick for some time past.
Perhaps the Courier-Journal is in the
same predicament that a citizen of
Charlotte is in relation to his Church
University. Although possessed of
much information on State and general
subjects, when appealed to for the
name of the city in which his Church
University is located, he was as com
pletely at a loss for an answer as if he
had been asked who Cain's wife was.
Change of Gauge of the A., T.
Railroad Quick Work.
Pur some time past arrangements
have been making preparatory to a
change of the gauge of the Atlantic,
Tennessee & Ohio Railroad from 4 feet
8 inches to 5 feet, to- conform with
that of the Charlotte, Columbia & Au
Tuesday night at 8 o'clock Capt. B.R.
Dunn, engineer maintenance of way of
the Charlotte, Columbia & Augusta
Railroad, and Capt. J. J. Gormley,
superintendent of the Atlantic, Ten
nessee & Ohio road, left Charlotte on a
special train, carrying thirty-one sec
tion masters and their forces, who were
to be distributed '.along the road to do
the work. At 2i o'clock yesterday
morning this train started south from
Statesville, behind the regular passen
ger train, and at every third mile post
a stoppage was made and six men
were dropped, thus giving four men to
each mile of road.the forces working in
opposite directions. Before day light
yesterday morning the special train re
turned to Charlotte, having placed the
whole force, and at 7 o'clock the work
of changing the gauge was commenced.
At 1.45 p. m. the last spike was driven
and the work completed, the whole
line of 48 miles being changed in
the exceedingly short time of four
hours, averaging the work of the
different forces. Yesterday morning at
10 :30 o'clock a road train from the C
C. and A. was sent out from Charlotte
to collect the tools and forces, and at
3:30 p.m. this train arrived in States
ville, and returned to Charlotte in time
for the passenger train to go out on
schedule time yesterday evening.
The change was made under the im
mediate supervision of Capt. Dunn,
assisted by Capt. J. J. Gormley, and the
systematic manner in which the ar.
rangements were made reflects the
highest credit on these gentlemen. It
is safe to say that the change was made
In the shortest time on record, as every
UetaU had received the most careful at-
HDUOQ ucioie cue wuis. was wuiuiouu-
ed. As proof of this fact it may be
stated that the train from Statesville
came in yesterday morning on time

went out yesterday afternoon on time
on a five foot gauge.

The engines of the road will at once
be sent to Columbia to te changed to
the wide gauge, and at an early day the
passenger and freight cars will also be
altered to conform to the wide gauge.
This change will at . present in no
wise affect Charlotte, but will enable

An Important Pnphaae The Atlaii
1 Ue aud French Breai Goboled p
by a Syndicate. .7 . V
The Baltimore Son of Tuesday says
the Norfolk and Western and Seaboard
and Roanoke Railroad Companies and
capitalists in their interest last week
bought a controlling interest in the Old
Dominion Steamship Company, which
runs from New York to Norfolk, Peters
burg and Richmond. The news was
first made known on Monday. The
Norfolk and Western was formerly
Mahone's Atlantic, Mississippi and
Ohio Railroad. It runs from Norfolk
to Bristol, Tennessee, 408 miles. Mr.
George F, Tyler, of Philadelphia, is the
president. The Seaboard and Roanoke
Railroad, of which Mr. J ohn M. Rob
inson, of Baltimore, is president termi
nates at Portsmouth, Va. The Old
Dominion SteamshipCompany,of which
Mr. N. L. McCready, of New York, is
president, continues with the Seaboard
and Roanoke, the Norfolk and Western,
the Chesapeake and Ohio and the Rich
mond and Danville Railroads, the last
mentioned at Richmond. It is under
stood the object of the Norfolk and
Western and Seaboard and Roanoke in
making the purchase was to protect
themselves against the expected move
ments of Messrs. Wm. P. Clyde & Co.
It will be remembered we stated a few
days ago that Messrs. Wm. P. Clyde &
Co., had made an offer for a controlling
interest in the Merchants and Miners'
Transportation Company, of which Mr.
George J. Appold is president, and
which has lines from Baltimore to
Boston, Providence, eta, touching at
Norfolk. The offer of Messrs. Clyde &
Co., was not accepted, but the price at
which it could be bought was stated,
and in this condition the negotiation is
at present. Hearing of the intention of
Messrs. Clyde & Co, to buy the Mer
chants and Miners' line, which affords
an avenue to Boston, etc, for the. Nor
folk and Western and Seaboard and
Roanoke Railroads, those two com
panies, supposing that the next move
of Messrs. Clyde & Co. might be to get
hold of the Old Dominion Steamship
Company, and thus cut them off from
New York as well as Boston, they at
once bought up a controlling interest
n that line, as stated. As the Old Do
minion line connects with theiiich
mondand Danville Railroad at Rich
mond, the Old Dominion will there
fore be used to counterbalance the pow
er of Messrs. Clyde & Co. in any future
steamship purchases they may make.
The Old Dominion Steamship Com
pany owns anout niteen steamers,
some of which are very handsome, and
all of which are good sea boats.
A special dispatch from Abbeville,
South Carolina, to the Charleston
News and Courier of yesterday, says a
meeting of the board of directors of the
Atlantic and French Board Yajley
Railroad Company was held at Abbe
ville, Monday night, to consider a prop
osition from Messrs. Child & Oliver, of
New York, to construct the entire line
of that road from Edgefield Courthouse
to the North Carolina line through
Eastatoe Gap. A contract was closed
witn mese parties, me coiiumous 01 1
... . . . ji m
which are that thev are to commence I
on the 1st of September next and com-
plete the entire road . by the 31st of
December, 1884. The contract was
entered into after a week's negotia
tions in Abbeville, Judge Cothran act
ing as legal adviser for the railroad
m et v
company. Messrs. unna , uiiver
went to Trenton Tuesday to enter into
a similar contract with the Aiken,
Trenton and Edgefield Railroad, which
is to form part of a through line to the
Kentucky system of roads. The
Edgefield, Trenton and Aiken road and
the French Broad Valley road, after
consolidation, are to be consolidated
with a road in North Carolina to con
nect with the Morristown and Cumber-
and Gap road at Morristown, Tenn.
The completed rod is to constitute, an
independent line connecting Cincin
nati with Louisville and Nashville and
with the seacoast of South Carolina.
The line of road in North Carolina is
to run down the west fork of Big Pig-
M . k SV .
eon River to Morristown, xennessee.
Messrs. Child & Oliver represent a
syndicate of New York capitalists who
have ample means to construct every
foot of the road. The construction of
the line is now considered a certainty
and interested parties are greatly elat
ed at the prospects.
The Moore County Mill Stones. :
Mr. J. E. Taylor, of the Taylor manu
facturing company, formerly of this
city, but now residing in Westminster,
Md, was in the city yesterday, and a
few facts relating to the business or
the company, which is making a spe
cialty of a North Carolina product, were
obtained from him, which are worthy
of note. This company made a fine
display at the Atlanta:Exposition, and
received an award on their corn mills
and engines, the former of which are
made of the celebrated Moore county
grit, and are fast gaining a reputation
throughout the country for thetr excel
lence and superiority over all others.
In making the award the committee
state that the corn mills are "entitled
to all that is claimed for them," which
is saying much. The company during
the last month of the exhibition sold
fifteen of these corn mills, which num
ber is about all that can be turned out
by the company in a month. Mr. Tay
lor states that the efforts put forth by
the company at the exposition have
met with very gratifying results, as is
evidenced by the increase m the de
mand for their mills throughout the
Western and Southern: States! a fact
which we take pleasure in noting for
the reason that while the gentlemen
engaged in this business are Northern
men, the material used is a: home pro
duct, and the success attending its in
troduction can but add to the already
increasing manufacturing interests of
the State. The company has a branch
bouse in Charlotte for the sals of their.
mills and engines, and we are assured
that the business has been entirely sat
isfactory at this place. , ;i ;
