From the New Orleans True Delta
January 16, 1862
   We learn from the West Tennessee Whig that the new machine shop of the Mobile & Ohio railroad, located at Jackson, Tennessee, is doing a large amount of useful work. The Whig learns that the president and superintendent design such an extension of the facilities in this shop since being cut off from the north that they will be able to do all their own work there, even their locomotives. If this should be done, the Whig says that the shop will employ from three to four hundred hands.
