[New Rail routes]

The second section of a new line of railway from Spalding to Lincoln was opened on Tuesday for passenger traffic. It was constructed by the Great Eastern and Great Northern Companies, and has been tested and inspected, and found to be perfectly safe.—On the same day a new line of railway between Lewes and East Grinstead was opened for traffic.
