The entree of this valricd aggregation,
comprising circus, menagerie nud mu
seum, Into tho city this inoriilng,vill pre
sent quite an Imposing spectacle. Tho
chariots, cages, elephant, camels and
horsemen, will form an Interesting scene,
and evidently please the larger ihiiltltudu
llmt will throng the route. Since ISar
iiitm has settled down to the business of
keeping his vast hlppodromo lu New
York, there Is no rival to tho present
great how traveling under thu able ad
ministration of, lames DuMott.
Thu menagerie is of unusual extent
and excellence. Not only docs It contain
a lino collection of beasts, with which
people aro generally familiar, but It
boasts of some rare and peculiar features
lu animals and birds, not usually found
In the traveling caravan. Cleanliness and
perfect order lire especially noticeable In
the menagerie tent, which Is uuw and
spacious; and tho animals of every species
are kept In superb condition.

lion. William Sykes, of Memphis, de
livered an address on the subject of tho
proposed Cairo and Tenties-ee Uiver
rallroad.at the council chamber lat even
ing. There was but a small assembly
present, lu the course of his speech,
"This road can be built cheaper than
any road has been built In tho whole
country. The cot of the local work. In
cluding grading and bridging, will be
from Cairo to Maylleld. n distance of
forty miles, $100,000; from Maylleld to
tho Tennessee river, a distance ot seventy
miles, $18.i,000, making the entire cost ol
the local work, from Cairo to the Ten
nessee river, to a point ncar.Iohnsonvllle,
n dMaucc of one hundred and ten miles,
It will cost $.1."0,000 to Iron and equip
the road from Cairo to the Tennessee
river, making the whole co-t $803,000.
This Is a large estimate, and the actual
cost will probably beluts than ihcamoiint
hero stated. The mo-tdllllcult and costly
portion ol the road will be be
tween Cairo and .Maylleld, with
in the first six miles from
Cairo, across the bottom. After running
through the bottom thu grading will be
very light all the way to the Tennessee
river. The whole cost of thl road from
Cairo to the Tcniiesee river will be--'
than a million of dollars, and the v
of farm products In the counties thro
which It is to run exceeds five mllllo'
dollars per annum.
The road would bring to Cairo

Chicago; and one, thu Cairo and V,
cenncs road, running lu a northeast,
direction. You have no roatl runf.
southeast, toward Columbia, Tennessee,
Iluntsville, Alabama, and Saaunah,
Georgfa. This road will fill tint gap.
If It ean be built from Cairo to Maylleld,
there will be no dlfllculty lu extending It
through West and Middle Tennessee In
to North Alabama, and thence to the At
lantic ocean. Tho difllctilt point Is in
making the start.
V. is 1S3 miles to Columbia,
and t"o hundred and sixtv to Iluntsville.
Alabama, from Cairo. This load will
run through the best tobacco and grain
regions In West Tennessee and Kentucky;
and after it crosses tho Tenncsseu river
it will run through thullucst iron region
In Middle Tennessee, Hickman county,
from which place Iron ore can be deliv
ered In Cairo at three dollars per ton,
which oro Is equal to any hi America.
The value ol larm products between Cairo
ami Iluntsville, Alabama, is greater than
in any other two hundred and sixty
miles from Cairo.
At present, very hltle of any of this
trade reaches you. Counties within
twenty and fotirty miles of this place find
a market elsewhere on account of not
having a road.
Il Is lor your people who are so deeply
Interested to devise the ways and means
to build it. lam aware that you have
been terribly embarrassed, that you havu
been exceedingly liberal In building
roads, which as yet have not dono you
much good. One-fourth of the money
spent on o hr roads would secure tho
building of this road, which would, us I
before remaiked, bring you more tnulo
than all nt them now do.
The cheapness ot this mad would, I
am satisfied, make It a good Investment
for capital. It would take in as
gross earnings at least $2,000 per
inllo each year, and allowing one
half for running expenses would leave
$1,000 per mile as net earnings, which
would lie more than ten per cent upon
All railroads built by thu liberality of
a cltv or town should bo run as far as
possible In the Interest ol that city or
town. Is that the ease hern In Cairo?
