Work on the new levee is being pushed
ahead ( lnt as the unfavorable condition
of the weather will permit. Yesterday
there wa lifty teams at 'ork, auel the
amount ol labor accomplished was as
much as In any two previous days
since the work was commenced.
The contractor and liU assistants
neon to be go-ahead men, and
plucky. Whether it rains or snows,
whether the ground is in condition or out
of condition It Is all the samu to them.
They wnik anyhow, and make no fuss
about It. We are glan vuy we the kind
ot men they are, and hope they mill Ikj
able to complete tlie new levee within tlie
tlmu agreed upon 111 tlie contract. We
have believed, ami Mil! believe, that a
larger force of tcauii cliuukl be put to
work on the Irvee in order to Insure its
completion within thu timo specified in
tho contract, lint we are not a levee
builder, and maybe we don't know as
much about what it takes to do such
work as thoo who have had experience
in the business. It is to be presumed (Vat
Mj. Hagnell knows hi- business, and we
guess lie docs ; aud in this hope wu shall
rest content told levees at large, and the
new levee in particular, takn care, of
themselves.

Col. Geo. W. Mclvealg, thu postmaster
ot Cairo, was In St. Louis on Monday and
Tuesday, for tho purpose, no doubt, of
helping Hon. D. Vt . Mumi out ot tho
sour mali dilllcultles he Is now In. This
is rigid. The Colonel owes his place to
D. W., who actually sacrificed the gen
tie and pliant, Hon. Isaac Clem
cnts, that the Colonel might retain his
place. D. W. did this, no doubt, for a
patriotic purpose, and Col. MclCcaig
slivuld not now neglect to stand by bl
friend with patriotic devotion. And he
will not. It coi. Mao lino mio ...
more strongly developed than another it
is bis proclivity to stand by his friends and
get into the board of election judges lu
the South Cairo priciiict. It therefore
follows that our postmaster will stand
by our late fcllow-clll.eii, the lamented
Mumi. Why not?
