- The following Communication from
Mayor Winter explains Itself:
Cairo, 111., Dec. 11. 170.
Dear Sir 1 see iu your local columns
of this morning, a synopsis of the min
utes of the proceedings of the city council
at its meeting on Tuesday evening,
w herein you state that Alderman Halli
day offered a resolution calling upou the
mayor lor a statement of his reasons for
releasing one Harry Aikeu from the eiiv
jail. Below please tlud a correct copy of
the resolution oflered by Alderman Halli
Jitsolttd. TliMt the) nmvrtr Id iA't
fully requested to report to the council.
If not liicfimpatihlo with Ihe public In
terest, his reasons for releasing from the
city Jail one llenrv Aiken, imprisoned
November J Ith last lor vngrancv as re
quired by section tl of article '2 ot the
i ou ask in your report
"w n v tun vot; ro it, mfxry?"
In reply to that question I have to say,
I never done any net such as the reso
liitlon sets forth. I did on. November
15th, under the authority given me as
mayor by the city charter, release one
Henry Yager, confined on a charge of
vagrancy, (and fhf prisoner claimed
that the charge against him was unjust).
i sgrr was offered a stay of ex
ecution, as being for the best Intetests of
the city to gi t rid or him, but he re
fused to leave the city or pay his fine
and was locked up. The key once
turned on him, all the police magistrates
and prosecuting attorneys In the tate
could not release him. There wa but
three ways for him to get out or jail.
1. To pay his fine ana the costs at
tached. 2. By serving out his time,
fifty-two days, at a cost to the city of
about $W ; or 3. to be released by the
mayor. Now, Mr. Editor, if it was good
policy for the police Judge and city at
torney to offer him a tay of execution
on the 14th of November on condition of
his leaving the city, was it not equally as
good policy In the mayor to release him
on the 15th on the same conditions?
inis was me view t took of
the matter at the time nnd
have not since changed my mind. I
think 1 did what was right and to the
best Interest of the city and to the pnblic
in releasing this man, whom the au
thor of the above resolution character"
izes as a bad character. This is my cx
planation of , this matter, and I hope it
may prove satisfactory. Inclosed please
find a eopy ol my order for the release
of the man In question, together with
the statement of the city jailer.

THE MAYOE'S SALARY.
A "Heavy Tax-Payer" Aihoeatea the)
Inrreaar-A I ho Think Aldermen
Should be Paid for Their her tircn.
Cairo, Ills., Dec. 1 1, 1S7C.
Editor Bi llktin Dear Sir : I no
tice by this morning's Bi llktlx that the
resolution of Mr. Lancaster instructing
the ordinance committee to prepare an
ordinance increasing the salary of the
mayor to one thousand dollars per an
num, was deflated. In my humble
opinion 1 think our honorable city coun
cil is penny wiso and pound foolish. I
am interested iu our city to a consider
able extent am necessarily In favor of
economy in the administration of our
affairs, but economy, like liberality, cau
be carried to an extreme, and results in
harm where good is intended. A middle
ground between these two should be se
lected in running the city government,
The self-same principles that govern In
dividuals in the conduct of their busi
ness, should govern a corporation in the
transaction ol its business. A busi
ness man will pay a fair compensation
for the services of his assistants, and wll1
prefer a competent to a cheaper priced
one, neither does he require a "fancy"
article. Just so in our city affairs. We
should have good competent officers unl
pay them a fair remuneration for their
services. We want for mayor a good
sensible man, who will attend to the du.
ties of the ollice, and he should receive
a salary that would enable him to do so
iu a proper manner. We do not require
a "fancy" article, and as people do not
generally now-a-days work for glory,
to get the kind of mayor wo want we
should pay him a salary that would enable
him to maintain the dignity of the
office as it should be. With the aldermen
who . voted for the resolution, I think
that one thousand dollars is little enough
for the mayor's salary. If anything, in
stead of putting it below that figure, 1
would be in favor of raisinsr it. A thou
sand dollars would enable the mayor to
keep an office where he could be fouyd
when wauted by strangers aud otliers
desiring lo tee him on business. While
on the subject of salaries, I am also in
favor of paying the aldermen a Just com
pensation. Then, if men will nccept office
on these conditions, the people) will expect
and require that they perform their w hole
duty. As the casu now stands, it is a
question of pleasure or inclination
whether they do so, or no, and they can
not consistently be called to account for
non-attendance. Heavy Tax P.ivrit,

RIVKR AND WEATHER.
Tha weather was warm and pleasant
until between two and three o'clock in
the afternoon, w hen a cold north wind
began to blow, and at the close of our re
port, C o'clock, It was 15 degrees coldir
than at three o'clock in the afternoon.
The decline In the river in the 24 hours
endi"g at five o'clock last evening, was
5 2-5 inches. The water marks 3 feet 5
in -lies on the gauge.
Ill EKE tiOROR DISASTER.
The loss by the breaking of the lee
gorge at St. Louis proves even greater
than was at first believed. Among the
boats destroyed was the Centennial, a
new boat, laying at the wliarf at St. Louis
receiving her hrst cargo. The total loss
to steamboat interests will not tall short
01 $250,000. Nothing has been heard
from the boats In the Mississippi between
Grind Tower and St. Louis, but it 1
feared that nt least some ot them will be
The Colorado is loading here for
Vicksburg, and expected te get away on
The Susie Silver is reshipping her
freight to St. Louis by rail, and will re
load here for New Orleans. Her pilots
report 5 feet as the best water between
here and Memphis.
The barge sunk by the Coal Hill at
Presidents Island Is reported to be direct
ly Iu the channel, and there Is only 5
feet around it.
The Dick Fulton and barges arc all off
the bar at Point Pleasant, except the ona
The Atlantic jmd barges were all
aground at Point Pleasant when the Gaff
left, and she met the Bee at Columbus
taking a bargedown to light her.
The Gaft has a fine trip of passenger
and freight for Cincinnati.
The C. W. Anderson, from Nashville,
brought 737 sacks ot wheat tor 'airo, aud
2 tons big and 5 tons bar iron tor St.
Harry Steiue, clerk of the ( has. W.
Morgan, arrived late in the evening with
the toy; boat Dick Fulton, to get a barge
of fuel for the Morgan, and reports that
boatalfoat and ready to proceed.
Of all the rocks on the Grand Cbaiu
perhaps none w tro more dreaded in sea
sons of low-water thau thai known as
"Jackson Rock.' it was a constant
menace to pilots, and once over the
chain tutd beyond Jackson Rock, not
only the pilot but all the officers aud
crew of the boat felt a relief.
The United States government
officials sometime Ago ordered the rock
to be removed, aud the Charlie Hill,
Hiram Hill master and diver, was em
ployed to do the work. A month or six
weeks ago the work was commenced ;
and after twenty-five days constant labor,
fragments ot stone weighing in tlie aggre
gate upwards of 70 tons were taken out
and removed entirely off the chain
the grnt bulk of it being Drought to
Cairo by barges. Lieutenant. Weston,
superintendent "of the work, reports the
work of removing the rock complete and
satisfactory. Lieut. Weston gives Mr
Hill high praise for the part he took in
removing the rock. Mr. Hill has had
many years experience in the
wrecking business, and under
stands it thoroughly. He has
lieeii iu th business since 1S47. and
knows utmost every crook lu tlie Mist
sippi river Iroin St. Louis to New Orleans,
and in the Ohio from Cairo to Cincinnati.
When llio Charlie Hill, with Hlraiu Hill
as master, undertakes to remove an ob
struction li must be something harder
thau atom If it successfully resist! them.
