We publish this morning a special
from St. Louts of Interest to our business
men. Cold weather and tbo bom disease
are disaranging business very much. If
ice increases in tha river, the transfer of
car at that city will bo discontinued. St
Louis is tco far north. A great city must
bo built at Cairo, o-the St. Louis bridge
finished without delay.
The firm of Tblsllewood & Co., com
mission merchants, have created a large
builnws in a very short time. The senior
of the firm first located hore, but the rapid
growth of tbe business required additional
help, and tbe Junior was called Into the
firm, which is one of the mott reliable In
the city. It has at command an abund
ance of capital, its member are prompt
and efficient business men, and it is in
every way entitled to what it has received
the explicit confidence of the public.
Arrangements for tho celebration of
the opening of the Cairo and Vincenncs
railroad on Monday next have been al
most completed. The committee of tha
city council bavo appointed a committee
of citizens to aid them In the rather labor
lout work of entortalnlng tbe city's guests.
Invitations have been extended to tbe
municipal and county officers along tbe
road, and it Is proposed to spread a ban
quet for thoso who accept the invitation'
and provide tbem with hotel accommoda
tions whllo they remain in tbe city. Mr.
Rexiord, of the St. Charles, has been
employed to prepare tho banquet, at
which Mayor Laniden will preiido. An
add re; i of welcome will be made before
tbe guests go to tho table, and after the re
past several, speeches by members of tbe
couccll and other citizens. Tbe dining
ball of tbe St. Charles will not accommo
date more than two hundred at a table, and
aa the guests will number that many, citi
zens cannot expect to partake of tbe ban
quet. The city council and the commit
tee of citizens will represent the public and
do the honor of the city at the banquet.
The citizens who do not receive an Invita
tion to tbe banquet, must not, therefore,
feel aggrieved. No Invitations will be dis
tributed in the city. However, it is ex
pected that every citizen will take an
interest in this matter that all will turn
out on Monday afternoon and give the ex
cursionists a boarty welcome to Cairo.

Last night was tbe opening eveninc
of tbe fair for the benefit of the St.

Importance ami look quiet vain, to be cor
nered on nit Hands by pretty girls in
quest of chanca-takers, and to hear the
many cogent reasons wby ho should In
vest, from all of which thore seems no
manner of getting around. And, in
deed we believe that no one present last
night, did try "back out " from tbe ex
cellenl proposition offered, and the con
acquence was, that tbe fair last evening
was a success. To-night and to-unrrow
night will be the last two nights of the
