Notice to Shippers of Freight
   This road will not receive freight to pass over the East Tennessee and Virginia Roads, beyond Chattanooga, until further notice; nor can it receive freights going south of Chattanooga, for three weeks, except such as have already accumulated here. Steamboats bringing freight here, intended for this road, will be compelled to store and wait for their charges until we can clear out what is already on hand.
