   The Mississippian states that in a few days the railroad connection will be completed from Meridian to Selma {except that the crossing of the Tombigbee River will be by ferry until after the war}. Between the latter point and Montgomery, a distance of thirty miles, the connection will be made by steamboat.
{This connection used the Alabama & Mississippi Rivers RR and the Northeast & Southwest Alabama RR}
