THE riTISEJVN' AMMOl'l ATIO.V.
The Jtuniat-Arciiui calls to the attention
of tUCltiMn' Association of Cairo, the
rery important fact that It might do some
good in forwarding the attempt now be
ing made to secure an appropriation
from Congress to Improve the river at
this city. This is n fact, hut we have lit
tle hope of the Association. The break
ing of Uie levee broke the Association-
wiped it out. Instead of taking liolu of
the matter, and discussing the question :
"Who Is to blaino, and what should le
done?" it quietly folded Its tent anil stole
out oi existence. That the Trustees of
the Property were to blame had tccn
caarged, and one or the Trustees was a
member of the Association. To

before his face no Association man had
the moral courage. And thcrctore, at the
very time w hen tho tint subject of real
importance to the city, va presented,
the Association laid down very quietly
and died. This was not as it should hare
been. This levee matter ought to have
been taken up by the Association and
discussed, whether Col. Taylor had ob
jection to or favored siiui discussion.
But we are sure Col. Taylor would not
liave objected. On the contrary, lie
would, no doubt, have been pleased with
the opportunity such a discussion would
have offered him to prove the many wild
assertions made by thoughtless and pre
judiced men against the Trustees alto

the Association bad a splendid opportuni
