Much alarm is expressed in the St.
Louis papers at the aspect presented by the
mighty Mississippi river and its tributaries.
The river at St. Louis is rising and on the
East St. Louis side has already begun to
do damngc to property, yet the principal
rise is not there. The flood in the Missouri
and in the Mississippi rivers, it is thought,
will join before reaching St. Louis and then
the "greatest danger to that city is antici
pated. The river yesterday morning was
nearly up the danger like at the lower
places along the city front and had already
encroached upon many acres of ground
above and below the center of the city. At
9 o'clock it was rising very rapidly. The
height ot the water above low water as
marked by the government gauge nt tho
foot of Market street was 29 feet nine
inches, only one foot nine inches below the
top of the gauge and only three inches be
low the danger line, when vast reaches of
rich bottom lands along the Mississippi
above and below St. Louis will be inun
dated. The situation at the levee was not
yet perilous, but vs becoming so every
hour as the water was encroaching upon the
little space left between the river's brink
and the railroad track very rapidly. At
the foot ot Morgan street tho waves made
by the winds dashed the water up to the
street roadway and wet the railroad tracks.
The steamboats along the levee are lying
close to the front row of buildings with
their stages nearly touching tho door steps.
The lumber yards north of the city have
been invaded by the river and large
quantities of lighter material
was floating away. Below tho city the wa
ter has approached and covered some of
the railroad tracks, tho Iron Mountain
tracks in particular, are endangered. In
East St. Louis the danger is even greater.
A number of houses have already boen
abandoned, and others ore gradually being
surrounded by water1, and the cellars . of
many more are beginning to fill. The sew
ers, although every effort has been made to
stop them up, persist in overflowing,
which lias resulted in covering
Main street and other portions
ot the city with water. The Madison coun
ty dyke is reported to be in a very weak
and unsubstantial condition. So much so
in fact that it is feared it will give way in
case tho water rises much higher. This
accident would open a new channel for tho
water to pass through, and in tho center of
this new channel East St. Imis would
stand.
Although it is generally acknowledg
ed (as from the result of the late election
it would appear) that tho administration of
the city's government, during tho last two
years, will compare favorably "with previous
administrations, yet it is also very gener
ally acknowledged that it has not been per
fect. Thero are those, even good men,
tuo who Bay that, In several respects, it
was not as good as it ought to hove been,
aud as it would havo been, had somo of tlio
ordinances been more rigidly enforced
had come of the officers of tho law been
a little more energetic in fcrrcttiug out
crime and bringing the offenders to justice.
This is a very mild way of stating
tho administration's weakness, but
theu ' it serves the purpose
While we know that evils have been al
lowed to prevail in the city during tho last
two years in a manner that was not a credit
cither to tho city or its authorities, yet wo
are not disposed to lay the whole blanio of
such evil upon the shoulders of ono man
and to follow tho example of some of his
fricD(lH(?) by heaping bitter denunciations
upon him. Most people, for reasons that
we havo never been able to understand, lay
all tho credit for a good muncipal govern
ment, or all tho blame for a bad one, upon
the shoulders of the chief executive of that
government. This is wrong. The proper
enforcement of tho city laws depends upon
several persons, over soino of whom tho
mayor has no control. The chief executive
may order tho policeman to arrest all who
violate any certain ordinance and thus en
deuvor to enforce it, but, if the per
son arrested under such ordiimuco
be convicted and punished, it must be done
by the prosecuting attorney and the police
magistrate. Thus it will be seen that the
punishment of crime the enforcement of
the ordinances - is in the hands of four men :
the mayor, the police officer, the police
magistrate and the city attorney, the latter
two being entirely independent of the for
mer two; and it 13 often the case that the
efforts of the first two, to bring
a person who appears to be guilty of a
glaring violation of an ordinance to justice,
arc defeated by the last two, either be
cause of tho lack of evidence in the case,
or lack of ability on the part of the city
attorney, or from some other reason.
The executive is, however, to take the ini
tiatory steps he is to see to it that an at
tempt is made to enforce the ordinances.
This duty is difficult of performance. It is
no easy matter for an executive to please
his fellow citizens in the performance of
this duty. People in their deterunn
atiou of what is l'oou government
and what is bad government are
always very much at loggerheads. Hence,
while some will blame the said executive
for not enforcing certain ordinances, others
will heap bitter denunciations upon him
because he does enforce them. Further
more many ol the ordinances iu nearly
every city, Cairo being ly no means an
exception, are and ofjightought to be, void
their enforcement would result in mis
chief to the community. Therelorc the
mayor must use a great deal of discretion
in the performance of his duties; he must
understand what laws ought to be enforced,
and what laws ought to be regarded as
null. If he did not do this if he under
took to enforce every law that were enacted,
the pernicious consequences that would
follow such action aud the howl of indig
nation that would arise from the
populace, are terrible even to con
template. Mayor Thistlewood has
tho advantage now of two years
experience in tlio administration ot tnc
government ot this city; he knows, or
ought to kuow, by this time what the
interests of the city demand of him und
that he must depend, now more than be
fore, upon his own good sense and know ledge
of right uninfluenced by any faction, lie
knows t'nat the interests of the city demand,
above all things, honesty and efficiency in
every branch of its government, therefore,
he will select such men for tho offices un
der Ins control as will answer to
these requirements; he knows that
the interests of the city demand order and
morality and ho will Htrivo to enforce the
ordinances that are intended to bring about
this result; he knows that the interests of
the city demand that there shall bo no
gambling, that there sliall be no quarrel
ling, no burglary, no drunkenness, and that
the hideous crime of prostitution shall bo
under the most vigorous control, and we
have reason to believe that Mayor Thistle-
wood will exert himself to carry out what
he knows is demanded by tho interests of
the city at large and the great majority of
its citizens.

taxes, that they will call and settle at once

POLICK COURT NOTES.
A number of cases came up before Po
lice Magistrate Olmsted, several of which
were rather airy and the defendants were
discharged.
Chief among tho violators of the city's
ordinances was Mr. Samuel Taylor, who
was urrested for carrying concealed weapons
and sent to tho calaboose for thirty days.
Taylor is a struuger in Cairo, coming, per
haps, from some country town like New
Madrid, Mo., or somo other town where
no man is considered a man until he has
sent a bullet through tho carcass of some
other man and he thought that Cairp was
ditto, but that thought cost Samuel his
liberty for at least thirty days.
One Murphy was brought before his
Honor Judge Olmsted for resisting Mr.
Mahanny who was acting in the capacity
of an officer. The charge against him was
not sufficiently substanciated, however, ami
he was discharged.
Annie Martin was arrested
for disorderly conduct and was
taken before Judge Olmsted, who, after
duly considering the evidence in the case
discharged her from custody.
Clara Pollaud was brought before
Esquire Comings on a warrant sworn out
by Harriett Peek, charging tho said Clara
with using abusive language. Two wit
nesses were introduced by the defense,
both exonerating Clara from the wicked
charge and hence she was discharged.
