1ea Sir-Now that the government
hat taken in hand the fixing of the river,
o that we are not in danger of an over
flow, and the security of the time It rea
sonably safe from speculation; but,
when wo escape one great danger we r
very apt to pay but little attention to
other dangers that may not appear very
important, but that in reality are of great
importance. One thing that militate!
greatly against the prosperity of Cairo It
the want ot unanimity amongst the mer
chants. There la no unity of action;
each of them pullt at seems best to him,
neither knowing nor caring how his
neighbor may tare ; and for this reason
all corporations hare always used Cairo
just as they pleased.
Does It not look strange that to-day
we have to pay 80o. per barrel freight
from Cairo to New Orleans, while Chi
cago payt $1.00 per barrel and St. Louit
90c. per barrel? The steamboats have
always charged what they pleased, and
now It seems that the railroads pro
pose! to do the same. It Is a pity that
the merchants of Cairo cannot control
the business that concerns the town, but
must look to outsiders to do it for them,
whn, if there was any public spirit
atnongt them, they would lorni tom
kind of an association that 70uld make
these corporations respect them as a
body, while now, as Individuals, they
have no standing at all. As seen above,
Chicago ships for 20c. per barrel, 3J-"
miles, while St, Louis ships for 10c. r
barrel, a distance of nearly 200 miles.
This virtually makes Cairo a way point,
which would not be the case if there
were any public spirited merchants here.
Even at those ratct we have been
stopped from shipping, while Chicago
aud St. Louit and other intermediate
points have been shipping right along.

Fredolin Bross. county Judge ot Alex

the Alexander county bank, was born at
Sasbach, Achern county. Grand Duke

May, 1S35. Ills father's namo was An
ton Bross, originally an architect and
builder, but allerwsrds an officer in the
government insurance department iu the
county of his nativity. He died at the
age of ninety years, in 1874.
His mother," whose maiden name
was Mary Ann Duerr, had
tonrteen children, of whom our subject
wat the tenth, and eight ot whom are
still living, four of them living Iu the
United States. She wat an excellent
woman, devoting her whole time and en
ergies to the care and education of her
children, whom she endesvored to bring
up in nie n.gnest principle 01 u.uiaiij.
She died in her native ouutry iu ISM).
Our subject was educated 111 the common
schools of his native town till the age
ol fourteen years, when be was appren
ticed to a cabinet-maker to learn that
trade. After hi. apprenticeship he
worked at a journeyman in the various
cities ot his native land and also In
Switzerland for about two years and un
til 1652, when he resolved to Immigrate
to America, being attracted thither partly
by inducements held out by a married
sister who had preceded him, and partly
to escape the military tervce. He landed
in New Orleans November 6, 1832, aud
proceeded to Greenwood, Mississippi, the
residence of his sister, whose hus
band carried on the business ot manu
facturing furniture, with whom, and his
brother William who accompanied him.be
entered Into partnership. One year alter-
ward, the brother-in-law dying of yellow
fever, they purchased the business from
their sister and carried it on successfully
till 1S5G, when the partnership wat dis
solved, William Bross continuing tlie
