TUB CAIRO ANBTEX XEKMKK KIVKIt
The near prospects of the building ot the
Cairo and TenaeMte Klver railroad, and
an appreciation ol the Immense advan
tage It will prove to the country through
which It will run,has excited In the Mem
phis peepU a desire to secure a branch
of the road from oi favorable point
aleng Its Hue, to Memphis, 'rue A,-r.i
of a late dste sajrs :
It seems that the people of Cairo and
St. J.ouls are about to extend the narrow
gauge road now ruunlug from St. Louis
to Cairo, toward Clifton, on the Tennes
see river, there to meet the Pulaski road,
aud thus draw the trade ot the Tennes
see river counties aud of tho counties In
the Southern portion of Middle Tennes
see to St. T.ouls and Cairo. This road
from Pulaski may alto con
nect with ' the MIddlctuu and
Ripley road, and then go toward the gulf.
Will Memphis stand by and see this Im
portant road pass by her, both going
north aud south, rather than raUu the
small amount necessary to build It
through this county Active ageuts have
been employed on liberal terms to secure
a sufficient subscription to build the road
from Cairo to Cllhuu. While we have
bjsen talking about a railroad to Kansas
Clty,,Colonl Hulbert, one of the ablest
railroad men In the South, has secured
aUcriptlen enough to build a narrow
fang railroad from Kansas City to St.
louls, there to connect with the Cairo
ajsd ft. Louis road.
Tlstrf h BO doubt but that tho Cairo
nd Tennessee Itlvcr railroad will prove
ono of the most advantageous railroad
enterprises In which this city Is inter
ested, ilo far, the rond has not
aroused that personal or general
Interest among our people which lt'ls en
titled to receive; In fact our citizens have
not taken much stock In It, literally or
otherwise. It will he u powerful arm,
reaching from Cairo down Into Kentucky
and Tenntjxca, and will gather tha rich
trade from some oi tlio llncjst portions ot
those States, and throw It Into the liuinW
of our commercial and business men.
Hut it is too true, that, as a means which
is to open up to us a new nventic of trade
aud commerce and consequent additional
prosperity, Its importance to our city Is
far more highly appreciated abroad than
It Is at home.
A NTAItTI.IlVU HROFOHaTION.
Mr. Itaiidall's proiiosed iimeudineiit to
the constitution provides that "after tlie
next presidential election the president
hall hold ofllco for six years, mid that
neither the president nor the vice-presi
dent, wheu the ollke of president de
volves upon him, shall b eligible for re
the kljfr ork limit J approves of this
aniendnsfRas "the motion ot a man who
vindicates by It his claim to the leadership
of the Democratic majority in the house."
The Herald carumends it to Republicans
and Democrat "iihd propose to thu lat
ter "ati act ot high statesmanship lu deal
ing with this question, which, although
startling at tlrst, will, the more It Is con
prove Itself to the
lug proposition of the Herald

'a term tor two more
n other words, let tlio amend
ment be passed so that President Grant
will hold over until 187S. Thencefor
ward the tenure of the olllce will be six
years aud ono term.
The reasons given by the Herald why
It would bo politic aud proper to split
the diflereuce with Gen. Grunt and give
him half of another presidential term are
briefly, that by this measure the Dcmoc
racy would win all parties to the adop
tlon of thu amendment. It would sit
Isfy the trlends of President Grant and
meet the approval of conservative
Republicans who dread thu un
certainty ot au election aud
would welcome Its postponement
Americans generally who see
our president a conspicuous aud illus
trlous figure would manfully consent

aud his services to the country.

President Grant would seem to have
disinclination to the close labor which
his olllce Imposes. While he likes its
dignity, splendor mid emolument, he is
bored by Its duties, and spends as large
a portion of his time as possiblo nwuy
from the capital. tVc have no doubt
mat me greater part ol the corruptions
which have grown up under his admin
istration is the consequence of his dis
taste for publls business and of the feeble
sense of responsibility which is its natural
accompaniment. It would, of course, be
exceedingly humiliating to the
President to have his private secrotary
convicted, but the President hlmselt
would be no further Implicated than for

ANALYSIS Of Till: COMM1 l"l I'XA.
It will bo noticed that the committees as
hero presented are organized with entire
disregard to their composition in past
years, anu it is saiu uy Mr. lvcrr's menus
that he lias aimed mainly to so form
Munn kn to guard every avenue by which
Irauds anU Totis couuv tie put through
congress. That has been the first ob
ject, and with this view tho committees
which offer the best opportunities for leg-
isiation.oi iiiiskiuu nuye oecn placed in
charge of men of undoubted
Integrity. Au example of this
is seen in tlio assignment
of Morrison ns chairman ot ways and
means. Kerr was stubbornly deter
mined not to place Wood in that place,
and almost us linn ngalust the appoint
ment of Cox. Morrison is a now mem
ber, but; really more competent than
cither Wood or Cox for the position,
while his integrity is beyond suspi
cion. Another committee which gave great
troublo was the District of Columbia,
and the selection of Buckner will be rec
ognized by all who know him ns a guar
antee against tlio continuance of the dis
trict rings. So with postofllces and post

poMilblu that they may not ho reported
