IMPORTANT TO CAIRO.
From the letter given below, which ap
peared in yesterday's Globe-Democrat, it
will be seen that Cairo will probably have,
besides the Texas narrow-gauge railroad,
another narrow-gauge road connecting it
direct with Louisville and Cincinnati.
The plans for building the road appear,
from the communication, to be rapidly
maturing. Yesterday the surveyors of
the Texas road reached Greenfield's
Landing, oppobite Cairo and, if the water
goes down sufficiently to pet mit it, they
will commence throwing up the embauk
mcnt from this end in ten or fifteen days.
Thus, within the next year or so, Cairo
may expect to have altogether three more
railroads than she now has.
But here is the letter :
Paris, Georgetown and Frankfort
Railroad, Frankfort, Kv., April 28, 1S81.
Col. J. W.Puramore, President Texas
and St. Louis Ruilroud, St. Louis, Mo.:
Deat Sir I am informed that you have a
prospect ot extending your road north
through Arkansas and Missouri to Cairo.
W'c are building a narrow gauge road trom
Louisville to make a connection with Cin
cinnati, and have organized a company to
construct a road from Louis
ville to Cairo, it there is a pros'
pect ot getting a narrow-gauge connection
at that point, iou will see by the map I
inclose, with our line marked connecting
with your line, that it will make the shortest
and most direct road to Louisville and
Cincinnati, and the most populous portion
of Kentucky and Ohio, and would com
mand a large business. Please let me hear
from you. Yours respectfully,
J. C. Fawcett, Gen'l Manager.
By referring to a geographically correct
map, it will be seen that a line drawn from
Cairo, through Paducah, Owensboro and
Louisville, to Cincinnati, will show itself
to be nearly air line, and will run through
some of the liveliest towns in Southern Illi
nois, Indiuna and Kentucky. Col. Pura
more will answer the letter to-day, assuring
Mr. Fawcett that his company will afford
the P. G. and F. every facility in its power.
It is claimed that a narrow-gauge road can
run alongside a standard gauge road de
claring 7 per cent, dividend, aud the nar
row road will be enabled to declare a 20
per cent dividend. Ten per cent ot this
can bo given to the public in the way of
reduced rat3 and still have a handsomo
profit left. St. Louis cotton men are firm
believers in the narrow-gauge system.
An elegant little affair was the wedding
of Gus Williamson and Miss Mary Dough
erty at Mound City on tho evening of day
bcloro yesterday. A very select party of
friends, both from Cairo aud Mound City,
gathered at the residence of tho bride's
parents and participated heartily in tho
festivities of the event. Rev. E. M.
Glassgow performed tho ceremony,
after which tho usual congratulations
were indulged in by friends nnd relatives.
The bride is tho youngest daughter of
Mr. Wm. Dougherty, of Mound City, and
a very estimable young lady. The groom,
Mr. Henry Augustus Williamson, is tho
oldest son of Mr. Hiram Williamson, of
this city, and a young man that has tho
universal respect of this community. Ho
is, at present and has been for somo time,
the telegraph operator and station ogeut of
tho Cairo & St. Louis railroad at
Jonesboro, Ills., where Mr. and Mrs. Will
iamson are, by this time, engaged In house

This greatest ot great shows, circus and
meuagerie will be in Cairo on the 11th of
May, and give an exhibition afternoon and
evening. The press of the country unite
in glowing tributes to the show and its
.management. A fair specimen of those
commendations wo L'ive below from the
"The great exhibition is the model one
of the day, in every respect in fact, wo
but speak tho universal sentiment of our
people, when we say that it is to-day one of
the best shows in America, and far superior
to anything of the kind ever seen here. Mr.
Bobbins, tho proprietor, is not only an
experienced showman, but a very pleasant
and agreeable gentleman, whose
arduous duties are shared
by his accomplished and kind-hearted lady,
What Mr. and Mrs. Rjbbins ore them
selves, they dr-ni'ind the same of their
whole corps of employes, viz: Fair and
honorablo dealing, and the greatest civility
to everybody. We never saw a more orderly
and well-behaved company of ladies and
gentlemen with any traveling exhibition.
The managcrio consists ot a choice selection
of animals, birds, etc.; and the ring
performance, in point of skill and science,is
ot a very insructivc and amusing character.
