THE PASSENGER DEPOT AT JONESBORO WAS ENTIRELY DESTROYED BY FIRE LAST NIGHT. THIS INFORMATION REACHED THE CITY THIS MORNING, BUT WE WERE UNABLE TO GATHER THE DETAILS OF THE CONFLAGRATION.

JONESBORO HAS BEEN CLAMMORING FOR A NEW DEPOT FOR A LONG WHILE , MANY OF THE CITIZENS BELIEVING THAT THE TOWN WOULD EVENTUALLY BE BLESSED BY GETTING A HANDSOME STONE OR BRICK STRUCTURE AND THE DESTRUCTION OF THE OLD ONE BY FIRE LAST NIGHT WILL PLACE THEN IN POSITION TO DO SOME ACTIVE WORK TOWARD ACCOMPLISHING THEIR WISH ALONG THAT LINE.
