The rains have washed away the embankment in some places on the M. & M. RR. And the branch. The train going west yesterday morning made slow progress, being compelled to repair the road as it went along, so that by the time it got to Wilton the train coming east had arrived there. There was no train from Muscatine to the junction at all yesterday.
