Mr. Editor:
Your paper always adrocaliug justico to
all,wo beliuvo you will allow us, through it,
to stato a few facts in regard to tho laying
of the Cairo and Vincennes railroad track
down Commercial avunuo of our city.
Every citixeu is taxed for street filling
fronting his lot ou said avenue. Our coun
cil gave the right of way without asking
oao cent in lieu theicof. Wo think the
Mjoilo should havo something to say in
regard to this mutter. Parties who have
bought property on tho avenue and intend
building on thu samo, aro thus driven
from tbstlr Intontions, and tho value ot
property decreased.
If tho railroad does not como down tho
avenue there will be some ten or twelve

CONDITION OF TI1K ISIVKItS.
Tho Ohio river nt this point Is cloar of
ico and continues receding steadily. Tho
Mississippi river is open as far up as Capo
Girardoau, and thero was ono departure
for that placo yesterday. Between Grand
l'owor and Carondulet tho river remains
closed with ico, and in somo places thero
is no telling how thick It is. Considering
tho vast amount of heavy Ico that has
floated by this harbor with n strong cur
rent, the floating crafts havo escaped with
romarkablo little damage, and only ncci
dent of any nolo was tho sinking of the
towboat Wild Cat on Christmas morning,
and had slio had on board a sufficient num
her of pumps she could havo been kept
aflo'.. Tho "oldest inhabitant'' never saw
so much ico pass here in ono winter.
Thoro is now a fair stage of water from
Cincinnati to New Orleans.
HUSINi:3 AND WEATHER.

After n stoady rain of nbout thirty

Tho Mary Alico loft at noon yesterday
for Now Orleans with four freighted
barges. Two of her barges wero loaded
with 31.000 bushels of bulk grain. Sbo
nlsohas in her tow tho barge, Nellie Hog

etc., tor tho Texas and Pacific railroad
which sho will leave at tbo mouth of lied

Tho Glencoo is fast fitting out for the

Sho lias replenished her line department
at this place, which wus nearly all lost by

lost overboard during thu firo, was Just

to step over on to tho barge, which tho
