Among the most sorrowful sights here
are many families that return from a
truitie-s scareti in Arkansas or .Missouri,
'going back to God's country," as they
style Last Tennessee. They generally
only have money enough to reach Cairo,
and pawn a watch or a gun hero to raise
money to go further. Father, mother,
ami two or three children have thu ague.
anu a nox or more, perhaps, contain the
remains of thoso who died on the trip.
Thu above item, taken from the Grccu-
eastle, Indiana, Dispatch, was published
by that journal as a special from this
city. Tho corrcspoudent ot the DispaUh,
whoever ho may be, certainly sees with
an eye different Irom any man. woman
or child in Cairo, if ho sees here "many
families that return lrom a fruitless search
In Arkasas or Missouri, going back to
God's country." There has not
been one out of a hundred
ot the families who passed through
Cairo for homes lu these States, who
have returned, and those who have come
back are about as well "fixed" upon their
return as they weru at emigrating ; for
tho reason that they go without a farth
ing, savu enough to carry them to their
destination, and It Is not, lu our opinion,
quite fair to say they have been pnupercd
mid made objects of sorrow and pity, by
a fruitless search for homes lu thoe
States. The correspondent ot tho DU
patch, wo think, must havo been a little
oil when hu w rote the above.

The lollowlng Is a synopsis ol the con
cluding portion of Mnjor Sykes' speech
at the council chamber on Friday even
ing. The maior said :
'alro, situated at the junction of the
two great rivers, the Ohio and the Ml,
slssipjil, poseses advantages which few
others enjoy, both for commercial and
manufacturing purpose. Not only are
you connected by water with all parts of
thu nest, hut you have railroad commu
nication In every direction save one, that
Is the southeast and that this Cairo
and Tennessee Hlver railroad Is In
tended to supply On tho
north you have the magnlilceiit
grain Held of Illlnoi. Within a short
distance in that direction aru Inexhaiista
blc mines of the finest toal. well suited
to manufacturing purposes. On the
south uniT.southcast are the grain, tobacco
and cotton fields of Kentucky and Tennes
see. On the line of the propo-ed Cairo
and Tennessee river railroad, within one
hundred and forty miles of Cairo, aio
"batiks," as they aru called, ol Iron ore
Inferior to none on this continent, from
winch ore may be delivered in Cairo at
three dollars per ton. With all these
advantages, cheap provision?, cheap fuel,
cheap Iron ore; with river and railroad
transportation unsurpiscil. what Is to
prevent Cairo from becoming a great
manufacturing city!- Want of capital
anil fear of the encroachments of the
-Mississippi river ! Hoth of these may be
remedied. A small sum lu proportion to
the magnitude of the enterprise, will
make Cairo perfectly secure lrom the
dangers of the river. Tho general gov
ernment should by all means 'expend an
amount necessary to protect .vottr
city. The importance ot Cairo lo the
commercial interests of the whole
country, being not only at thejunctiou of
tho two great rivers, but also the centre
of an important railroad system, entitles
her to government assistance In protect
ing herself from the dangers of the riv
er, lu addition, tho government owns
property here worth several hundred
thousand dollars, which It Is Its duty as
well as Its Interest to protect. 'The Mis
sissippi river has had fewer appropria
tions, in proportion to Its Importance,
than any river lu the United States that
has needed any. All parts or the coun
try arc Interested in the improvement
of the Mississippi river, and In the
protection of thu cities mid towns
on Its banks. It Is said that an appropri
ation of one hundred thousand dollars or
perhaps less will render Cairo perfectly
secure. Kvery railroad built to lids
placu renders its protection thu moru Im
portant ami causes a larger extent of
country to bu interested In its welfare,
lttilld litis roatl, which I am now advo
cating. Into Alabama and Georgia, mid
you enlbt the sympathies and interests
of those people hi behalf of Cairo.
When your city is made secure
and capital begins to come here to
bo Invested In manufactories, thim
the debt which now so op
presses you will scarcely bu felt. It Is
now very heavy for a city of the size of
Cairo, but as manufacturing establish
ments grow tip.tlie city will become pros
perous, and what Is now comparatively a
large debt will then become light. As
thu growin? of Sampson's locks gave
him strength, and enabled him to break
the chains which bound him, so the
grotvtli of manufacturing establishments,
whether of Hour, cotton, tobacco or Iron,
will glvo you new strength, and
enable you to burst the fetters
which are around your limb,
and cause you to march forward In the
paths of prosperity and progress. The
excellent mills which you now have
for the manufacture of Hour show what
yptt can do ; and what you now do as to
Hour you will hereafter do lu other de
partments ot manufacturing. Nothing,
In my opinion, will do more to bring
about this much desired result, than the
protection ot yourelty from the encroach
ments of tho river and the building of
tho Cairo and Teiinesscu lliver railroad
through Kentucky and Tennessee into
Alabama and Georgia.

so effective u teacher as to lead us to leant
very much from tho haps and mishaps of
othets. An Incident teaching tills lesson
(wu hope It will ho u most eilcctlvo one)
occurretrin our city rrltlay evening last.
Not only vits pi opei ly placed lu great
peril, but human life was in eminent
danger of being destroyed. Wo alludu
to thu boiling over of a lamp lllletl with
a light oil, at thu book store of Mr. It. F
Parker on Commercial avenue. Un.
dotibtcilly no blaiuu can bo attached to
any one for thu occurrence. It was an
accident ol nature, like those which havo
occurred again and again, and no one
cau bo blamed for them unless
bhimo can be attached to parties prefer-
Ing to employ oil for llluuiluatlui! i.ttr-
poses lu place of gas for the simple rea
son that the use of the latter Is more
expensive than that of (lie former Is a
falhcy, which has lecn proved to many a
merchants great distress, when his mer
chandise and establishment has been
destroyed by tiro caused by thu explo
sion or boiling over ot oil used lor the
purposes wu havu mentioned.
There is not a city In the country but
what has been sitbjccleil, hi more or less
Instances, to the calamity of a conflagra
tion from this source, and yet how slow
Hie people are to learn the better way.
As to thu number of lives sacrificed by
explosions or accident from the ue of
oil, who can number them V or calculate
the consequences to family circle, made
dcsolalc by the death of loved ones,
who In the lull enjoyment or lite, were
suddenly prostrated, llndiiig deatlt after
a llugciiug period ofiigouixlng suil'cni.g.
The accident ut Mr. Parker's book
store resulted fortunately, In no great
destruction of property, so many persons
being present that the Haines, after some
Utile dIHIculty weru extinguished,
but dlil icstilt, its may be
learned lu another column. In
thu Infliction of Injuries to Mrs. Itos
enwater, (wife ol Mr. Itosenwater, or the
llrmot Goldstlno and Koscnwater,) by
the ignition or her clothing. She Indcid
had a narrow esjape. As It Is, she is
quite sevcrly burned.
What Is the leson to be learned from
this Incidont? No one can tall to give
Is not property In great hazard when
oils are In use for Illuminating? Will It
pay for landlords to lea-u their stores to
parties who will not give a guarantee that
no such Illuminations shall be ued ?
The time Is not far distant when the
rates for Insuring a stock of goods where
such oils are thus used, will be much
higher than they are at present. It Is
seen from this Incident, that where oil is
not explosive, it can become over-heated
and produce detrimental results, as In
the Instance referred to. The question
then Is will It. pay to use oil? The price
of gas to-day In Cairo Is much lower than
hi any other city of tho samu size hi this
Sta'e. The fact that most of our mer
chants ttsu gas Is sulllcletit to how that
they appreciate the great advan
tage arising from its use. We
uclieve that the danger or
a conflagration is greatly increased by
the usoor oil. In fnct.it Is so much
greater than would seem at llrst
glance. Do not forget that thu accident
on Friday night was caused by the heat
ing ol thu oil, ami Us consequent boiling
over, and not to an explosion. While on
the one hand, gns 1 perfectly safe, on the
other, oil Is more or less dangerous, und
may be attended with terrible results.
