Dear Sir Vour's of the 11th inst.,
making tome ifKjuiry ag to the Cairo St
.St. Louis K, i:., cume duly to hand, and
In rrply, permit me to sny that our road
is paying expenses and more too, but
juot how much more, 1 am unable to tell
you without devoting more time to it
than I now have at ray command.
1 may, however, ay that wben the
panic ot l.73 struck tbis country,
the road was open 90 miles,
with no fund on hand to complete
the rem.ilninj 00 mil' to Cairo :
since that time the 00 miles have been
completed, and i- nearly all paid for out
ol the earnings of the road; so that the
entire lino is now in successlul operation.
In doing this, It is to be remembered
that the road has had to compete for
business for one-half ol its entire length,
with the Illinois Cental which latter
roal has not scrupled to take every ad
vantage that il were possible to take of
this voting road. The building ot our
road lias reduced the freight rates wl ere
It comes in competitoin which the 4 foot
H Inch gauge, lully 30 per cent., r.nd j et
we live and are prosperous.
I regret that I have not at my disposal
tlie Blutisties you ask lor as to other
three feet roads so that I could comply
with your request. Should you or your
friends, engaged in the enterprise men
tioned by j on, wish to make a personal
inspection of our road and equipments,
we shall take great pleasure In affording
you every facility In our power to do so.
Yours truly, W. S. MtAHi.i:s.
Secretary Cairo & St. Louis It. II. Co.
From this appears that the C. & St.
L. road built luelt. Where then did the
money obtained on bonds of Uie com
pany and of cities and counties go ? And
if, out ol the eart.ings of part of Uie road,
the other pirt was Mulshed, why did
Mr. Searles make a statement
to the board of equalization,
showing that the road was not
paying even running expenses! Aud if
the road is sncli a money mine, why Is
the stock wortli nothing, and the road as
dilapidated as a toper's old hat or the
seat of a tramp's breeches ? We pause
for a reply, and appeal to echo and
Searles to answer us.

Wliil) Senator Sargeant was making a
speech on Wednesday last, against the
electoral plan, lie was Interrupted by
Senator Hamlin, who read the return
from the Ftate of Georgia In 101, and
said there was no certificate accompany
ing it, that the electors met and balloted.
The paper did not conform to the consti
tution. There was nothing upon Its face
to show that the volts were cast
for anybody. Yet tlie rec
ord showed it was counted and no
objection was made. How could it have
been counted save by the decision of the
Ieron In whose custoJy it was, Mr.
Jeflerson, who was then president of
the senate and presided over the joint
liy this Interjection Senator Hamlin In
tended to give strength to the claims that
the president of tlie senate has the
right to count the electoral votes
and declare the result. Senator Ed
rounds took the wind out of his
sails by culling attention to the fact, that,
In tho instance cited, Mr. Jefferson
opened the paper, said to be the Georgia
returns, and handed it to the tellers who
examined it, entered the number ot votes
of Georgia, and passed it back to Jefler
son, who declared, upon the statement
of the tellers, made without objections,
that tho state of Georgia had given so
niHiiv votes to so and so. Senator Ed
munds might have gone further,
and called attention to the
precedent set by Senator Hamlin when
that gentleman was president of tlie
senate. In 18C.", while he was vice-presl
dent, he ollicially repudiated the doctrine
that he had tho rluht to count the elec
toral votes. He refused to open what
ever certificates had been received from
ch veu states, on the ground that he was
obeying tlie directions ol the two houses
of congress. He Is a changed Hamlin,
and now asserts the doctrine that he him-
clt repudiated while he was In the seat
now occupied by Senator Ferry.
Judge David Davis has been elected
United States senator from the State of
Illinois to serve six years from the fourth
of March next. The Democratic party
of Illinois has reason to commend the
great good sense of the Democratic aiem
burs of the legislature, shown in the se
lection and election ot Judge Davis. Ho
has been our candidate for 6cveral years
past. We wanted him for president,
but did not get him ; we
would have been glad to vote for him lor
any position suitable to his distinguished
ability, but have not had tlie opportunity.
As 1' inted States senator he suits us, and
we are couildeut that the future will
prove that the Democrats, aided by; the
Independents, ol the lllinoU icglslatare,
did a good day's work yesterday. Judge
Davis has dignified every position to
w hich ho has been called la the past, aud
lie will dignity the United States senator
ship. In character and ability he Is the
peer of any man In that body,
Thk men who are opposed lo the plan
of settlement are either rascals, fools or
subservleut tools of ras?aU or fools.
The proposed compromise is the way to
peace, and U who obstructs tho wtv
ougui iu ue execrated.
THE HE.tATORIAL t'OXTEST.
On Wednesday the senatorial combat
at Springfield assumed a strange phase,
and Democrats, Republicans and Inde
pendents became mixed In a seemingly
inextricable confusion. The Democrats
nominated Judge David Davis, and the
Republicans, Judge Lawrence, but
neither party could be held to Its candi
date. Logan being out of the way, party
lines became weak.
The first ballot after the?e nominations
the thirty-fifth of the contest resulted
as follows: Lawrence, 8G; iavls, 07;
Haines, 7; scattering, 8.
The thirty-sixth ballot resulted as fol
lows, with twelve changes from the pre
vious ballot : Lawrence, 81 ; Davis, 98 ;
Haines, 15; scattering 4.
The thirty-seventh ballot showed
thirty-five changes from the previous bal.
lot. mostly Republican to Haines. The
result was as follows : Davis, 08 ; Law
rence, 60 ; Haines. 42 ; scattering, 8.
On the thirty-eighth ballott, l&S vot
ing, 100' was the necessary number to
elect. The result ot this ballot, with 21
changes from the previous ballott, was
as follows: Davis, 9G; Haines, M;
Lawrence, 30 ; scattering, 10. Under the
excitement aud disappointment of the
Republicans the house had several un
ruly outbreaks of passionate exclama
tion. On the thirty-ninth ballot, with eleven
changes from tho previous ballots, the
result was as follows : Davis. 62 :
Halues, C9 ; Lawrence, 42: scattering 5.
Speaker Shaw changed to Haines with
tho majority ot the Republicans. Before
the roll-call was announced there was a
general change of 20 vote of Democrats,
principally to Lawrence.
Alter u, wio. ike joint convention
was adjourned, excitement running In
The Washington correspondent of the
Louisville Courier Journal, says that Mor
rison will try to get in his Louisiana re
port by next Monday. The report will
set out fully and denounce the frauds by
which the will of the people of Louisiana
was subverted. It will state how
the supervisors of registration threw out
twenty-nine hundred of the Democratic
majority in making their returns to the
returning board. Both Democratic and
Republican members of the eommiltee
are said to regard this act aa wholly ille
gal. The action of the returning board
in throwing out eleven thousand votes
additional to these, thereby depriving
the Democrats of some eight thousand
majority, will be condemned by the ma
jority report of the committee. There Is
no semblance of warrant tor any
such action, except perhaps In
the two Fellcianas, Ouachita and
Morthouso parishes, which, it re
jected, would still leave over 4.000 Dem
ocratic majority in the State, in addition
to the twenty-nine hundred Democratic
votes thrown out by the supervisors.
One good result will be that there will be
no division in the committee as to what
were the actual votes for each side cast
and sent to the returning board. The
only question of difference is as to the
number of votes lost by the illegal action
of supervisors, and here the estimates
vary only one or two hundred.
A PALPABLE HIT.
One of the most palpable hits of Sena
tor Conkling's great speech in favor ot
the plan for the settlement of the presi
dential difUculty, was when, in reply to
Senator Morton's assertion that the Re
publicans of his state were opposed to
the plan, Conkling read a petition signed
by thirty-seven Republicans and three
Democrats of Indiana, and then, moving
over to Morton's seat, said, with the
greatest politeness : 'l find among these
names Conrad Baker, late Republican
governor; Leonldas Sexton, late lieuten
ant-governor and Republican congress
man elect; Jonathan Gordon, late Re
publican candidate for attorney-general ;
Gen. Ben Harrison, late Republican
candidate for governor." The manner
of the orator was fine, and the blow given
by him staggering. It knocked the ven
omous old wretch of the hobbling canes
out of time.
The old man of the Sun and several
old boys who correspond lor his paper
are disturbed by the proposed compro
mise. The old man didn't know much
about it, and professes to be induced to
bo in favor ot its adoption or opposed to
it as the case may be that Is to say, it
he understands himself, which it is
eared the same he does not. The old
boys who write lor him, are clearly of
the opinion that the president of the sen
ate should count in Hayes and there end
the matter. Easy, old boys ! The doc
triuo that tho president of the senato has
a right to count the vote has been
knocked higher than a kite, and If Ferry
undertakes to count in Hayes, away goes
his head. The house will then elect Til
den, and try conclusions with the
com plra tors on the battle Meld.
Tub Padueah Xew$ swallows the com
promise with a wry face. It is not
pleased, It declares, with the work of
the joint committee ; but, St adds, "if we
can't get a whole loaf we suppose we
shall have to put up with a hall one."
Very good ; and now, dear Newt, baying
concluded to "put up" with the plan,
shut up and don't give aid and comfort
to the Republican conspirators who are
seeking to defeat It to make It obnox
lous. Be quiet.
JUDGE or HI OW!f CARE.
Morton, In a speech in tho senats In
1873, denied the right ot the president of
the senate to count the electoral vote.
In that speech ho said : "Upon the hy
pothesis that the president of the set ate
has tho power to open and count the
electoral votes, and that the two houses
are to be present merely as witnesses
and have no jurisdiction over the subct,
either Jointly or separately, ertryWy
must perceive that it Ua rati and dan genu
power to repoe in the handt of one win,
especially when he may be ardently de
voted to the fortunes of a great party, or
when he may be personally Intercsttd,
sitting as judge In his own case."
Grant U reported by tho New"T6rlt
Tribune to have remarked substantially
In Washington the other day, that his In
disposition to overthrow the Xicholls
government in Louisiana was due to the
fact that his own party had not, of late,
been sustaining him in his predatory ex
cursions in the Soulh.
Tna Democrats of the general assem
bly, w ho refused to avail themselves of
Uie opportunity they had to elect Bill
Anderson and thus end the senatorial
muddle are entitled to credit for stub
bornness, but their good sense is not ap
parent to us. Bill Is a good enough
Democrat for anybody,
