Simo month fir no nine, a t, it tie
lUxk pair armoiincel that W. ti,
Kord, well known here, bad filed the
necessary parer in the Secretary of
State's office, at Little Itock, for the
construction of a bridge across the
river at Memphis. This morninic Mr,
Meriwether, city engineer, is rcixirted
as saying that a bridge Is certainly to
lie built, ana lift la not likely to seak
wildly. But thero may lai "a bug un
der that chip," and it behooves our
business men to be on time. All of us
want a bridge, and the business of our
city sadly needs one ; hut If Jay iould
controls it.aa now seems quite certain,
it is not to help Memphis. Confident
that somebody will build that bridge,
be and bis brother capitalists, who are
all Interested in the great railroad lines
connecting St. Ixniis directly with the

all chartered rights from (!ongresa lav
fore any one clae moves; and It ia nt
unlikely that he already has the pro
ject an secured us to render a charter
certain whenever the linilroinl Com
mittee of the House shall clioosu to
report. You know that Congress sel
dom refuses to adopt the reports of
cominiltees, utiles there be very
strong and open objections. Now, Id
us look alittle further, and ask if Iould
may not have a special interest, in
securing control of this bridge,
lie does not earn for the gen
eral development of the country
except as It may 1111 his ruilroml trains
with people and freight. He was
never known to imiiii a run mail ex
cept as a short feeder to some of his
trunk lilies, and it believer be w ants a
road now running be sets bis allies to
work, first tn hear its stock, and then,
w hen be baa a majority control of 1',
hi bull it. Some men call this a si long
evidence of public spirit. Just such
a tnotlvn governs ( (mild about this
road if he la after it nt nil. Can you
name any Mad on this side of the
river, south ol imisvilleand north of
Vickshiirg, that be baa any interest
in? Ie baa none in any mud in Ar
kansas except audi as lead dilectly to
St. hulls. It ia hinted that the sale
of the raraniore or "Cotton Belt
road, maile hi M. Ikmiis last week, was
In Ida Interest. That road runs from
Cairo to Texarkana via I'lne HlnH'iiml
Camden, and opens up the finest cot

tributary to Memphis. Now he is en
gaged in consti noting a road (nun

Mow about the bridge here? (iould
knows it will be built, mid would like
to control it. That s out nil would mean

Texas from Memphis to St, l.ouis.iind
let bis bridge sutler rather than bis
railroad lines. l,et it be remembered
that if the bridge were built, (iould
has no road leading to it, on this side
of the river, that would be benefited
in the least.
If be Is alter that bridge, is uol bis
H 1 am correct, would il iot lie very
advisable for the Cotton Kxchango anil
the chamber of Comment to call nn
early meeting, adopt such resolutions
as the invasion may demand, and in
struct Mr. Taylor to see that Mem

It need not be added that when any
bridge company shall apply for privi
leges at Memphis, Hidden, 1co, Mont

Sncb a bridge as the commerce of
Memphis will shiii demand should
have a double passenger and double
freight track, with the usual wagon
and carriage tnjn, and, if possible, it
ahonld be built by the government.,
and not by any company of capitalists,
who will always be governed bv their

Cel. Wyatt nnd M. H. Dicky have

W hile there is a geneial depression

It certainly was
A I'l.KASA NT II' V 1,1 II ' I'KIIIOII,
tlml jierniilteil a mere laborer o pass
one-foiirlli of his existence in feativi-
ties; hill il seems now lo have come to
an end. A cotton crop w ill no longer,
at the prices prevailing nnd likely to
prevail in future, furnish more than
bare subsistence to its milker, and it ia
something of a relief to notice that
laborers are now remaining at homo,
asking for work to bridge over the
three usually idle months, so that they
may keep the wull from the door; but
unfortunately the very unrcmitncrn
live prices of colton and corn also de
prlvo the IiuiiIIoiiIh of any surplus
menus with which they can supply
this demanded labor. Tlie proceeds of
Ida crips are harelv Htiflieicnt to pay
for their making, with siilllclent sur
plus over to furnish him with a narrow
support. If he desires to clear mo e
land, he has no money lo pay for tin
work; if ho has it already cleared, he
has no inoiiev to pay for mules nnd
tools to work It.
If this was the end of the trouble
the rest of tlie world would do ns
usual; that is, pity the poor agricul
turist and go it m way; but this ia
not the end. The fanner necesfoirilv
reduces Ida purchases of grtieorios and
the grocer sudors; he buva scantily of
dry goods, und the merchant sutlers.
If he needs now machinery mid tools
he must make up his mi ml to do with
out them, mid the luanufacturer suf-
fers; and when merchants and inanu
factinvrs suH'eraiidthcir trade lessens,
rents, wages nnd salaries must go
down, nnd t In; owners of mil estate
aull'er with the rcl. Poctum feel the
pressure, for poor people llud it cheaper
iodic nnd have done with it than to
pay physicians nnd niwthccnrica.
After n while newspapers will sutler,
for when a man has reliiupiislied his
toddy ami other luxuries, he will
finally dispense with bia daily journal.

All those sulleringN, like a row of
fulling bricks, come from the mis
fortunes of a single class, the agri
cultural laborers, who are at the lad
torn. Make them prosperous, and the
rod of the world will be prosperous.
Starve them, and the great of the
earth, will begin to lose fat. Howiathe
luvsont abject condition of these un
fortunate lnlmrers to be improved?
tVrhapa thero is no perfect janaooa ;
but it would seem that one experi
ment might 1h triod-Mhat of alwolutc
five trade. Take off every restriction
to commerce and icrmit a free fight;
allow the tutubuvr not only to disixvso
of w hat he raise or makes w here he
can obtain the liost price, but also to
buy his supplies w tioro he can but
the ohoapoi.t. If this fails, no one can
lv blamed ; it ia kismet.

Under our protective system w e have
built up enormous factories in many
parts of thcomntrv.andhavcat length
established a well-seated plutocracy in
the land. But cx-copt to those who
have slroiidv salted dow n their barrels
of gold and stuffed their safety deposit
cells with bonds, a dark cloud' is loom
ing in the future. These factories are
turning out mountains of goods of
every description, but buyers are lx
oomNig son nw every day. We over
produce. W hy? Simp'y because the
people are rehired of the vworof pur
chasing. U it requires all a man's
iwnings to procure the lucre necessi
ties M life, the prices of which are so
enhanced by tarifl'iiviposts, how can he
aid manufacturer by buying their
wares? Without some surplus a farmer
cannot purchase a reaper if the 'price
was HO a doen. If a sew ing nidiine
could bo bought for ii and a bedstead
for SO cents, what's the use, if the la
borer cannot raise the 2 or the .SO
HOCK l THK PI TI RK.
Wo sec no hope for free trade in the
immediate future. The opening of an
iron mine or the blowing in of a roll
ing mill in a purely agricultural state,
sot np a hullabaloo at omv about
protecting our infant industries. In
fant industries, quotha ! They may be
infants, but they are quite as gross as
any lady that appeared hist month at
the lime Museum. Capitalists start
the c.t, and ncwsp)ier editors who
ought to know bolter, jump into the
swim and denounce free trade. These
advocate a system w hieh forces nine
tcnths Of the people to accept the
lowesl possible prices tor whnt they
produce, and pay the highcsl
price for event long they buy.
Some day, speed it Heaven, the
voters, w ho arc the sufferoTs.will open
t hoi r eyes to tli is Condition of affairs,
and then protection will lc snowed
under forty feet of ballots, nnd the
world will wonder Ihnl it bore t he ter
rible imposition for so many weary
years. We arc encouraeed to believe
that there are ninny people becoming
enlightened on this subject We feel
assured that many of our host men
and most trusted lenders, while they
call themselves moderate protection
ists, and lire supporting a tariff for
revenue only, arc realty free traders
nt heart, '('hey are moderate now
both in words and acts, because peo
ple must be led slowly, even to their
ow n good. Some day they may lw
able to coine out in their true colors,
and bravi'! declare their fnilh and
their determination that the ox shall
