Oi.D Henry A. Wise says the nomina
tion of Horaco Greeley, In 1872, was a
gross blunder that drove Virginia tu cast
her vote for Grant. "I could not and
did not vote lor Greeley," continues the
cross-jrralned old man; "but If the
thumb-screw hail tori urvd me to vote at
all, I declare, by all the gods at once, I
should have voted for Grant," which
would have been pretty hard Grant.
It is stated that .Speaker Kerr's health

It Is to Improve the navigation of the

The free navigation of the Mississippi
river was one of the most powerful ap
peals made lo the people of the North
west a few years ago. Let us now have
the free, uninterrupted and safe naviga
tion of that great river, and this Is all we
ask. Mr, Sykes says "all pails of the
country arc Interested hi the Improve
ment of the Mississippi river, and hi
the protection of Hie cities and towns on
its bank"." From tills it appears he
Is tor such protection as the
Improvement ol the river, uch as tho
deepening of the channel and the remov
al of ob-triictlons; and this Is elenrly
within the power of the general
government. ThU open avowal oi a de

shows that Mr. Sykes, who is a citizen of
lennesee, nnil who llve on the river Im
low this city, rles above any senctlnnal
or local feeling, and looks to the good of
the whole country. With these remarks,
thrown in prefatorially, we give what
Mr. Sykes said:
"A small sum in proportion to the
magnitude ol the enterpiNe, will make
("alio perfectly secure from the dangers
of the river. The general government
should by nil ineuiis expend an amount
necessary to protect your city. The Im
portance of Cairo to the commorelal In
terests of tlie whole country, being not
only at the junction of the two great
rivers, but nlso the centre oi an Impor
taut ralroad system; entitles her to gov
ernment assUtanco iu protecting her
self Irom tho dangers of the rivers.
In addition, the government owns prop
erly here worth several hundred thous
and dollar., where It I? Its Interest to pro
tect. The Mississippi river lias had
lewer appropriations, Iu proportion to Its
Importance than any river in tliu United
States that has needed any. All parts of
the country arc Interested In tbc Improve
ment of the MMtslppI river and in the
protection of the cities and towns on Its
banks. It is said tlr.it an appropriation
of one hundred thousand dollars or per
hap less will lender Cairo perfectly
secure. Kverv railroad built lo this
place lenders Its protection more impor
tant mid causes a larger extent of coun
try to be interested In its welfare."

Kirii'i:. To the several I'acllle railroad compa
nies the general government has given
1 10,000,000 acres or the land an siren
greater than that of England, Ireland and
Wales. One hundred and twenty million
acres of these lauds are not worth more
than seven cents an acre. The entire ah-
senco ol water renders vegetable life Im
possible. Millions oi acres nro covered
with sand; other millions with rock,
frcuucntly of volcanic formation, all
strongly impregnated with alkali, and
supporting no vegetation whatever, ex
cept a scanty grow tli of tho sago hitih.
Now the. generous, holl-sacrilleing l'a
clllc railroad companies who ow n thc-c
lauds, have concluded that Ihey will
oiKii the way for thn general govern
ment to enter upon a "big speculation."
Tho government did tho "fair thing" by
the companies ; loaned Its credit to them
to an extent equal to the cot of the
roads; paid $21,000,000 interest for the
companies-, thus Involving itsell to the
amount of S$5,000,000. Now, for all tills
the companies feel grateful, and to inani
feet their gratitude have actually offered
to sell the whole body ol their unsold
alrid and alkali lauds, back
to the government, for the ab
solute trlllc o $150 per acre !
More than this, the companies will not
