Just as we expected the New York
chief of police put his foot in It when
he stepped on Justus Cunningham's
corns, and now he has got a broadside
from our attorney and counsellor at law
that will shiver his stern from the crown of
his head to the soles of his feet. Justus
has written him a letter of three closely
written pages of legal cap, narrating the
reasons why he asked of him the
simple favor of buying him a
bull-dog revolver, and then gives him
one of the most scathing, scat
tering, sarcastic, tearing rebukes we
ever had the pleasure of reading. He tell 8
Superintendent Walling, Chief of Police
In New York city, how he keeps the
Central Hotel in Mound City and is very
much exposed getting up nights to admit
travelers from the trains and steamboats)
and that he runs a daily hack from Mound
City to Cairo and his driver was knocked
down three times in ( airo lately and that's
why he wants the Bulldog revolver.
And then he upbraids the great
Chief with his perfidy in publishing his
first note written in the spirit of a gen
tleman and a scholar and the sauvity of
a niot honorable profession, and then
kindly ask him to lay his letter before
the New York common council. Wal
ling won't do it. He dare not do it, or
that common council, generally known
as "common scoundrels" would abolish
him before he'd have time to take a drink.
Still, we are satisfied that Counsellor
Cunningham made a mistake in not ad
dressing Mr. Tildeu personally in regard
to the Bulldog; revolver. The Counsellor
don't see tilings so quickly as some peo
ple, but large bodies like great minds
move slow, and this Is why the leading
lawyers of Cairo ieek his learned opin
ions on knotty law points, indeed, what
would Mulkcy and Wheeler be without
Cunningham as a reserve power? We
would have been pleased to have pub
lished this lost letter, but the innate mod
esty of Justus leads him to prefer its pub
licsition first In the New York Tim's.

.coiumbus discovered a new world.
Not America as It now stands, but sim
Ily a new world. People In those days
w ere very much like those of the present,
I suppose : always eager for the last
sensation. And when Columbus ,vent
back In triumph to Spain, I suppose he
was treated very much as a great man of
the present: Invited to dinners, pre
sented with complimentary tickets to the
theater and other places of amusement.
tho shining light of social gatherings,
etc., etc And since he had discovered
this new world, people flocked to Its
shores in vast numbers to see its beauties.
and, alas for human nature, to enrich
themselves from its almost boundless
resources. Everyone seemed to have lost
his insane terrors of the sea. The sacred
guardians of the tempestuous waters
seemed to have utterly vanished, lor ship
load after ship load courageously em
barked, and in due time safely landed on
America's fair soil. Fair, indeed, but
very, very savage. Filled with savage
tteasts, covered w ith jungles and prairies,
and ruled by copper-colored men, scarcely
Ies savage than the country which they
inhabited, It presented a formidable
front to tho wanderers from over the sea;
but so very strange is the inconsistency
of man's nature, having conquered the
imagiuary terrors of the sea, they neycr
faltered at the real, tangible perils of the
sayago land. In an incredibly short time,
colonies begau to spring up, and though
our ancestors occasionally lost a scalp or
two by some playful freak ot humoi on
the part of their red brothers, they still
persevered. Now, we are told that all
w ho "try, try again," finally succeed. So
we may safely conclude our ancestors
did succeed. We know that they subdued
the eastern shore of America; that they
gave their posterity the means to subdue
the western part ; that they sought for
liberty and found it ; that they consti
tuted a government and maintained it ;
that they turned their attention towards
the resource, of their couutrr and pros
pered ; that they planner), built
nd invented : and that, thanks 1
to their ingenuity and unceasing labors,
the present generation rushes from place
to place with lightning speed ; that we
sit in our own homes and interchange
thoughts with friends a thousand miles
distant ; that we go puffing and steaming
over the water in monster-floating
houses, whereas, our forefathers paddled
around in a leaky canoe ; that we may
hear of any event in the old world in the
same hour it happened, and vice versa.
But our ancestors gave us something
more, something greater and better
than all ot these. They have
transmitted to their posterity
an unceasing, untiring longinr
and seeking after something higher and
more ennobling ; something which will
benefit all ; something which may save
precious minutes to the rising genera
tion. In this spirit was the railroad
laid from one side of the continent to the
other; the telegraph wires stretched
over thousands of miles; canals joining
the rivers from one side of the states to
the other, forming an intricate chain of
commerce; and within the last year,
jetties are being constructed in the great
est river the world can boast, the Missis
sippi, and these are destined to place
Cairo on a hill from which the
rest of the world will view her in sur
prise, envy and admiration. All these
things have been accomplished in one
hundred years. And now, at tho close
ot our first century, we can look with
pride upon the past, and thank God we
are yet a united people. True, our polit
ical aflairs are wearing a serious look,
but political whirlpools have always been
avoided in the past and will be avoided
in the future, and the grand old ship ot
state that has so distinguished itself In
the short period it has mingled with the
world's "flairs will still sail gal
lantly down the stream of time with
the stars and stripes floating in
a glorious constellation over Its decks,
and for the future let us hope that tho
different sections of the country may
be drawu into closer bonds of unity
and love ; that, at our next Centennial,
the West and East, the North and the
South may be so firmly united that
neither party power, political discussion
amendments to the constitution, nor re
turning boards shall be able to w reck the
Ship ot State, or run it on a sand bar.
Then will America indeed be the "land
of the free ;" then shall the
Union jack flutter iu undisputed
sway over harbors; theu poli
ticians and carpet baggers be among
the things of the past ; then will Cairo
be enrolled among the greatest of Amer
ican cities; then shall the American
eagle, perched peacefully upon the dome
of the capitol at Washington, with a
knowing wink at foreigners, exclaim :
"This is indeed the promised land of the
Chinamen and the negro the refuge
to which all men of all nations are in
vited to bring their wives and families,
and be received in oue universal brother
