Atlantic, Tennessee & Ohio Railroad
   The work on this road is now progressing rapidly. Quite a number of hands are at present engaged in laying down a portion of the rail. The work as far as it has been laid, looks exceedingly well, and the road when completed will compare favorably with the best roads in the country.
