Wiichkas, Tho grasping and odious
monopoly which now coutrols the ex
Istlng railroad communications between
the Atlantic and l'acllio oceans, requires
some wholesome check by which the out
rageous exactions now daily perpetrated
by it upon tbe traveling and business
public may be avoided, and , ::i
Whereas, The construction ol another
line ol railroad between the two oceans,
upon a more southern and shorter route,
w hich can be secured at less expense
than that already constructed, will afford
a healthy competition with existing lines
aud thus give relief from tbe grevloua
burdens complained of, under which the
people are uow laboring; therefore,
Uioked, By the cltv council ol the city
of Cairo, in the state of Illinois, that the
construction ot the Texas i'ueitio rail
road, on or near the 3'nd parallel of
north latitude, from or near tbe Missis
sippi river to Sun Diego on the Pacific
ocean, is a work of great national neces
sity, and for tbe reasons specified above
should be speedily completed, and liberal
governmental aid should be extended to
it, and that the representative iu tbe na
tional congress from this district be and
he hereby Is earnestly requested to as
sist by every means In bis power the
passage ot such a bill u will provide for
tbe prompt construction ol said road
from Fort Worth, in tbe state ot Texas,
to the Rio Grande near El Paso, through

Fort Yuma, aud thence on the most
practicable route to tbe Ship Channel tn
the bay ot Han Diego, and to advocate
and vote for reasonable governmental aid
to the proposed work, as specified in the
bill lately reported to tho house of re-
Sresentatives of the national congress by

In thegullet called heartburn." (why.
It is imposssible to conceive, since the
heart has nothing to . do with It,) is
caused by the acetous fermentation iu the
stomach ol (he food contained in it; by an
overplus of tbe gastric juice, which is it
sell a powerful acid, or by tiie unnatural
ly acid quality ot that secretion. The
ordinary way ot treating this symptom,
for it is nothing else, is to administer bi
carbonate ot soda, an alkali, to neutral
ize the acid. But sour stomach cannot
be cured by alkalis, which tend to weaken
the digestive apparatus. A lur better
remedy is Hostetter's (Stomach Bitters,
which strengthens the cellular mem
brane, tbe seat of the difficulty, regulates
the How of the gastric secretion, im
proves the quality if vitiated, and puts
the stomach in good working order.
Perfect digestion follows as a natural
sequence, and there is no more trouble
from heartburn or (our stomach. The
liver aud bowels are also thoroughly
regulated by this sovereign alterative.
