had ignited tho woodon box, and the burn-

tho way tho flro bapponod. Wo hopo wo

It is wrong to amokoj secondly, that If
you do amoko you should not throw tho

you have oxtingulshod tho flro; thirdly,
mat railroad oilices should not 1irv

Mr. P. Corcorsn awollod it with an ax

Corcoran had used tho ax holvu sovoral

A Few Uiauuub A hoot CAiitoiTE.
This morning wp publish a communication
on the Calto and ttt. Louis railroad, signed'
Calrofte." It Is a very sensible commun
ication. 'J'ho tondtr will, no doubt, come
io tho conclusion, after reading tho com-
munlcatlon, that "Cairolto" is ono of tho
most enterprising of our citizens, that bo
s ono of thoso men who lauor night and
day to advanco tho interests of his city)
that ho give both tlmo ana money to
buildup O&lro. "Cairolto" writes IIko
uch a cltlr.sn ; but bo is not otio of that
kind. On tho contrary, n city full of such
paoplo would bo a city full of men who
would do very little good for their city.
But lio Is n fair typo of not a few of tho
citizens of Cairo. By tho unexpected
prosperity of a branch of tradoin this city
he has bocoino wealthy, but if an onter
prlso wcro suggested, and monoy required
to carry it througb,bo would bo tlio last man
you would think of applying to for a sub
scription. At moetiugs called to advanco
tho city's interests ho is conspicuously ab
sent. When an unlerpriso is started be
stands aloof and grumbles at tho men who
aro pressing it forward. Ho is n patron
Of St. Louis and Louisville Whllo talk.
Ing about tbo necessity of building up
Cairo be spends tho monoy ho makes at
Cairo In other cities. Occasionally, to
strike n sly blow at somo neighbor, as ho
hat in tho communication publlihcd this
morning, ho ventures Into his local jour
nals, which ho never falls to denounce and
which ho iccs not palronfzo. Ho is, in
short, u holder back, who shouts
"Hurrah V when somobody olso has
shored the city iorwnrd.
Wo hav mlo tlicso remarks bocauio
our corrospondont bints tbat wo havo men
in Cairo who had a selfish motivo in op
posing the Oslro and St. Louis road, and
has soon propor to lecturo his lollow busi
ness inon. Wo wish to be as frank with
him as bo is with his neighbors, and to
aisuru bim that ba also ought to wako up,
ought to Uke an Intorost in Cairo; ought
to pttronizi homo institutions; and ought
ti bo a Cairo man in (net as well as in
thoory. Wo admiro bis communication.
It contains much good sense, but It would
bo well if lio Wero to pluck tho beam from
hi! own eyo beforo ho reproaches the molo

A OAIH01TE COMMENTS UPON IT.
THINKS IT A BIS THING FOll
AND WK BELIEVE HIS HEAD TO
Dear Slit: Cairo has waited patiently
nnd long, but it sooms tbat her hopes aro
soon to bo realized, Iu regard to tho Cairo
and bt. Louis Narrow Gatigo railway, tbu
spocdy completion of which Is assured at
an early day. Conjectures and opinions
of tho good or ill that tho road may work
tho :lty aro as various as tho porsons who
express them. Any jiubllo enterprise, no
matter bow much It will atsurodly con
duco to the publio weal, is suro to bavo
carpers attack It, somo from personal In
torost, others through a sonso of chronic
dlsatlsfactloii at anything aud everything
Of courso Cairo has bor sharo of such in
dividuals of both kinds, and this enter
prise, tho Ctlro and St. Louis railroad, re
colvos Us duo sharo of tbeir atten
tion. Although msny persons, with
good reason, would havo preferred
a broad gauge road, still, slnco wn aro to
hive a narrow gauge, let us look at tho
advantage tho road will bn to Cairo,
Tho completion of tM road will opon
up to tbo ontorprlslng business men of
Cairo tho rlchost farming country In th
Main, and It also travels-a somo of tho
finest coal Holds in tho country. With a
little iixortion on tho part of ou' business
men, tho bulk of Hour manufactured, and
wht, corn, hty, and produco of all de
scriptions raised along tbu lino of this
road, will bo shipped to Onlro, to swoll
too already Urge and growing trade of
tho city. Tho general business of the city
win not oniy os increased, Lut a new
foaturo will bo introduced into tho com
morco of tho city by making tributary
thoso immense coal fields through whloh
tills road run. That competition is tho
llfi) of trade, is ai. admitted fact; also, that
it Inuroascft trade. Hence, tho Cairo and
Si. Louis road, compotiiii: with the one
rosd that now supplies tho city with tint
cisentlal article, coal, will bring llf.i Into
tbo trade; and, I predict without fenr of
contradiction, that this place will Ixcmia
tbo great depot for supplying tbe iiumur
OJS steamboats that Iinvfgato the Ohio and
Mississippi rivers, and tho southern coal
buyers. Tho competition will keep tho
prlcos down to aareasonablu figure, and
tho healthy trade this will induce, will
nocessiUto tho keeping of largo Block on
baud, so tbat where wo now have ono or
two In thotrtje, wo will havodozons.
Monoy always sooks and readily per
ctlvos tho opportunity to mako monoy,
and take advantago of It, Cairo, with
her advantageous position, as tho boad of
navigation six montha In tho year, should
oven with ono road have controlled tho
coal trtdo at lnsat on tbo rivers. She has
dono so to a certain oxtent; but competi
tion was needed to infuso life into thu
trade, and tbatcompolitlnn will bo vouched
by tho completion of tho Narrow Oaugo
road, and induce capitalists to Invest.
But wo a oo J not look to this alone
to show tbu advantages that tho road
will bo to our c!;y. Tbo paradise of tbe
Great West in seeking foreign markeU,
cannot always ba diverted from its natural
channel, tho Mississippi river, throuch
artificial channels . and, when tho day
comes that II v,lll tako Its truo course,
Cairo should come in for hor sluro in tho
trade, tbe share to which her position en
title hor. Tho completion of this road I
conddor accessory to obtaining this. Wo
must considor that wo havo formldablo
rivals to contond with, nnd every advan
tage, however slight, should bo mado to
tally, Homo was not built in a
day, neither can wo expect Cairo, In tb
laco of tbo difllcultios (ho his td contond
with, spring up into a large commercial
city In n night. "Evory little mates
mlckle." Tbl littlo C. and St. L. road
with proper oxertlon on tho part of ou
yniupie, cbu do maue to grow into ft groat
big "mlcklo," and this ''mlckle" will at
tract moro "littles" till it will bo trans
formed before our astonished gaza into
largo commercial cliy. Cities have Leen
built on worse sltos than Cairo occupie
Tbe only obstaclo Is tho lowness of th
ground bolow tho high water mark of th
rivers, but our levees havo thoroughly
protocted tho city from overflow. Th
building of tho Narrow Guago on th
Mississippi lovoo, as tho Illinois Centra
is built on tho Ohio loveo, will tend to In
crcaso tbo strength of thoso embankments
thus roassurlng tho doubting Thomases
amongst our proporty boldors, and will
bo a further inducomont to others to in
vest in Oilro proporty. It is noedlcs to
say anything In regard to th
health of tho city, a that ha beon too
