TORY OF THE ClTY.
: : St. Louii Journal. - '
Cairo, Sept 20. For the last few days
J have been In Cairo, 111., and have be
come quite Interested la 1U history.
That history, in brief, through the klnd.
ness of M, B. Harrell, Esq., ol this city, 1
am enabled to relate.
It seems that prior to 1813 the place
was unknown. In that year an effort
was made to establish a town. The Ter
ritorial Legislature was petitioned tor a
charter, ..which alter discussion was
granted. The master spirit of
this enterprise was one "Coroegys." lie
went co iar as to organize and lay out
the town In lota, and then pending nego
tiations for money to carry out his pro
tect WkJ taken sick aud died. . It he did
not succeed, he and his adherent! have
the honor ol first giving the plaeo tho
name ol "Cairo."

this the project fell through.
From this date unl w t was simply
Bian'tt-atfuice tor steamboats and flat
boats and generally known as "Bird's
roint," this latter name having super
aeded the former owing to Uh being the
name ola prominent settler. In itc
Darius IB, Holbrook and others ob
tained a charter from the state legisla-
. ture under title of .'Cairo - City and
Canal Co." 1 : should likd to
tell you ,! ;why ' It was called
"Canal Co.," but It would take too long.
In 1837 this company commenced opera
tions, obtaining their money from Wright
A Co., bankers, London, England, Dur
ing the three succeeding years, they
built at nst expense a levee around the
Place, enclosing one thousand acres of
Una, tawdries, uw mm, a dry dock, a
iioui and. numerous other bulldlnirs:

mortgaged, houses went to dilupldutiou

pect and unlmppiness and disgust pro
vailed. Then it was that the third and
last attempt was made to rebuild the
place, and this attempt in all human
probability will prove succesMltil.
The mortgagees ami other ititerefted
parties appointed two trustee:, known
as the "Cairo i'ropery Trustees," who
were authorized to issue "Ikneiielal
Stock" in payment lor mortgages and
lor the liquidation ol all utiu r claims in
and upou property. Tho amount ol
"Uenelieial Stock" thus issued was three

were diritiiiotir heard at this point. It was
Uien that the women looked Well to thiir
eia'je and inn their-guns. Trom tlie dost
of Ute war unul lle present, its history
has t-atu one of slow but sure aJvatu
vueut Tour additional railroads have
en'uered here, whereas prior To the vr
there was but oce, la company with
George Fisher, Ej., surveyor of t lie
Port of Cairo, I was Invited to view the
city from the summit of the Cutom
House and to.-lonice for tnev are one.
This magniiicenl building deserves spo
eu.1 mention. It is built on made ground
some thirteen feet in height trom the
original earth, then t-tioots up in
the air fifty-six feet and is seventy-
Bve by sixty-live feet in UN
mensionr1. being formed of bluUli ('ray
stone and is three stories in height not in
cluding tho basement. The upper por
tion is used for a Custom House and
Signal Ofhee, the lower for tho i'ost Ot-
flee, ihe ulillce cost plump half a million
ot dollars. A nobler one 1 have not seen.
I wish you had half as good in St. Louis.
After viewing tne various departments of
the building, which l will not attempt to
descnoe, we at iasi arrived at the
top. Vliat a Diftgnlflcout pro
spect was spread out before
us. "Imagination's utmost stretch in
wonder dies away." The "Father of
Waters" could bo seen lor miles north
ward and southward, the majestic Ohio
also. Bird's Point in Missouri where
a portion of the union army encamped
during the war, likewiso Fort Holt, Ky.,
now called Fillmore, used for similar
purposes, and in another direction
Mound City, where gunboats used to
enter. Thus the eye took a largo por
tion ot Kentucky, Illinois and Missouri.
No wonder. thought 1 to
myself as we slowly descended.th.it a city
was founded here, lor by its natural
channels and their tributaries alone it
grasps the poiuts of the campass. Near
to this building stauds the Court House,
a brick structure substantially built.
while between the two is the aigc ofllco
ol the "Cairo Property Trustees." This
Is about the same size as the Court lfo-".
and is an ornament 10 tne town.
In sauntering around 1 beheld a number
of churches, some oi.tnem ueauuiiii in
desittn and execution.' Also three larj;e
nubile schools containing till tho modern
uppllcauccs for an education. It
is also the center of u great
Iruic-growiiur region embracm'' every
variety. Tho great majority of tho fruit
for sale In St. i.ouis and Chicago is ship
ped irom here and vicinity. Why Ls it,
vou ask, it Cairo is the place you des
cribe It it ha3 not u larger population':
I can, In present space, indicate only two
or three reasons.
1. It has gone abroad that it is an nil'
heulthv plueo. "-Now u lie will travel
from Maine to ucorgut, Dcioro truth gets
up in tne morning and puts on
his bri'ixuos," t-uia uio ceiennteu
Fisher Ames, using un illustration more
forcible than elegant. So I don't expect
retutatiitn will equal the lie; but here it
is: Tabulated statements conclusively
show that less people die here thau at
any town along the river. Again, Sur
geon general Barnes, during the war,
pronounced tne cuy penecuy n co irom
malaria, and healthy. Judging by my
own experience I have never felt better
in my life and the citizens all have a
healthy, vigorous look. Again, more
thieves and rascals are caught here
than in any other place in the
state. That is true; irom nere tney go to
tiie penitentiary not escape, as in niauy
other places. These rascals art not resi
dents, but Irom all parts. Tney come
here because so many roads converge at
this point sayiDg nothing about the Ohio
and Mississippi rivers. Cairo is taxed
and pays liberally tor catching the crim-
inuis ot otuer paris. u mis uo against
her make the most of it. A
last question, Cairo is ruled
by a company. It is true, but this
company oilers every inuucemunt to set
tlers consistent witii tne satety and se
curity of its property, and many a man
that has come here penniless by active
Industry has arisen to competency und
oltentiiues alllucnce. There is, however,
one valid reason, the Mississippi over

1 answer unhesitatingly, tho General
Government. It is her duty to keep her
rivers In their proper courses, not thut of
cities situated on their banks. A smull
appropriation has been granted, but not
enough to conipleto it. There Is, how
ever, plenty of money appropriated lor

to mention tho no wspapers. 1 1 hns three

ti.v. daily and weekly, and Tho Aruuu, a

and aro worthy ol it.
This town has also a flno lihrarv
founded by the ladies. Music is not neg
lected. During the summer mouths
the three brass bands of the city give
free open air concerts. The city also has
some elegant private residences and sev.
eral fine hotels, among which aro tho
