New York Dally Graphic, Aug. 9th.
Cairo is situated at the confluence ot the
Ohio and Mississippi rivers. It is the coun
ty seat of Alexander county, in the state of
Illinois. It is at the head of uninterrupted
navigation on the Mississippi, and below
obstructions by ice in the winter and low
water in the summer, thus having a clear
and open river communication at all times
of the year over the Lower Mississippi and
its tributaries, with all the country south to
the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic ocean.
Cairo has also this same advantage of river
communication with all the country north
over the streams flowing by it when those
streams are not navigable by reason of ice
or low water. Not only Lab this city the
finest river communication with the out
side world, but she is also an active railroad
centre, tho following roads being among
the most important railroads in the valleys
of the Mississippi and Ohio, converging to
and having their termini there: The Illi
nois Central railroad, the Cairo & Vincen-
ucss and the Cairo & St. Louis railroads.
Her railwjy communications with the south
are of as great value as those with the north
for New Orleans. Jackson & Great North
ern and the Mobile & Ohio railroads make
here their northern terminus, thus giving
Cairo direct railroad communication with
the cities of New Orleans Bnd Mobile and
all other important points in the south and
southeast. The Cairo, Arkansas and Texas
Railroad opens communication with South
ern Missouri, Arkansas and Texas and the
principal cities of those states. The last
named road will give also direct communi
cation with the Pacific Ocean when the
Texas and Pacific Railroad is completed, as
it connects therewith. Aside from the
above named roads, which are completed
and in successful operation, the Holly
Springs, Brownsville and Ohio River rail
road and the Cairo and Tennessee River
Railroad, which will both make Cairo their
northern and western terminus, are in
course of construction and will soon be
completed. Other railroads both in Illinois
and in states 'south ot the Ohio river which
will also terminate at Cairo arc projected
and arrangemeuts made for their early com
pletion. The building of these projected
roads, in connection with those already in
operation, taken with her river communi
cations, gives to Cairo unsurpassed advan
tages as a great commercial centra.
The early history of Cairo is, perhaps,
known to many of our readers. Forty
three years ago English capital to the
amount of $1,250,000 was enlisted, and
somo progress made with tne project ot
founding a city here. Foundries, Biiwniills,
machine shops, a dry dock, hotel and other
public and business houses were erected
and put in operation. Protective embank
ments were thrown up, and a city laid out
that comported with the L'topian idea of
tho projectors. Speculation and over con
fidence ruined the projoct then.
The possago ot the Illinois Central and
grant bill through congress was tho signal
for moro vigorous measures. I5y an ar
rangement with tho Illinois Central rail
road the present levees were, in part, con.
structed; the trustees completed them the
whole at a cost of nearly $500,000. In tho
summer of 1834 the first city lot was sold,
and what tha city is to-day is tho growth
of the intervening period. Tho levees are
several feet above tho crest of the highest
flood ever known at that locality, broad
based and well settled. These levees wero
constructed and will be maintained per
petually frco of cost to the citizens and tax
payers. The prcsont population of Cairo is about
12,000, hor populace being moral, intelli
gent, liberal and enterprising. " She pos
sesses a superior system of public schools.
Churches of nearly every denomination are
located there and woll lupportcd, and hence
in s prosperous condition.' 8he 11 provided
with places of amusement, and has an ath
eneum with a seating capacity of 700. This
season an opera bouse is to be built that
will compare favorably with those of some
of our larger cities. Notwithstanding the
fact that Cairo has boon laid in ashes three
times, and that it has boen
given a bad reputation by the
press of the country, she has been rebuilded
by home capitalists, and has to-day some of
tho finest business blocks in the west and
an enterprising class of merchants. All
branches of trade are in a prosperous con
dition, and two banks are well supported.
The two mills have a united capacity of
1,000 barrels per day. Two brands of the
product of these mills, when placed upon
the market, brings 50 cents more per barrel
than that of any other mill in the land.
Cairo has gas works of large capacity,
live foundries and iron works, three saw
mills, one distillery, two breweries, two
barrel factories, two furniture factories, two
sash and blind factories, one broom factory,
uve wnnrr-ooarg, ano several largo grain,
tobacco ond provision warehouses. The
Custom House at Cairo, which cost the
,'overnment $:)00.000, is ono of the largest
and linest buildings in the west. Several
ot the reads centering there have in course
of erection, and in fact nearly completed, a
grand Union Depot. Her hotels are numer
ous and very fair. A new one ImB just been
The Singer Sewing Machine Company
has lately bought ground there tor a
largo branch factory, and also the Nashville
Cotton Oil Company.
Space will not permit details concerning
the two newspapers that are an honor to the
city; its prosperous finances, its own ad
mirable tiro department, its fine residences,
costing as high as $50,000; its salubrious
climate, because of the various air currents
of the rivers; the fertility ot the surround
ing soil; liic timber, iron ore and coal; the
abundant fruit; the good pavement of the
streets; the attractions for manufacturers.
In conclusion, Cairo is as described in
the above, nothing less and perhaps a little
more. It is the actual Cairo and not the
traditional one. No city has been" more
maligned or slandcrod; none has risen
through greater difficulties, and few if any
have equalled her growth in all directions
in the past ten yeats. No greater contrast
can bo imagined than that of Cairo to day
and what Dickens oicturol her, as he
passed in 1842.

Women Gambling at Saratoga
One of the rocont amusements' of
group of ladies at the Grand Union has
been buving French pools on the daily '
races. They do not go to the track,
but meet in the reception-room and
agreo on tho horse. They admit they
scarcely know a horse from a mule, but
are governed by their intuition. Rath
er, this secret power resides in one
little lady, who takes the day's pro-
Sramme and selects the horse. Sho
oes not select the favorite. That, she
says, would be using her judgment,
and she has greater faith in hor intui
tion. She selects the horse and the
other ladies buy and the ticker eonds
tbem the results, while thty nurse their
excitement in the reception-room dur
ing the races. The strangest part is
that so far she had not made any mis
takes, and the ladies are radiant over
their successes. The ladies who do
not buy amuse themselves by picking;
out the winners and choosing the com
bination. One of theso the other day
chose a successful combination which,
if she had bought, would have brought
her $1,500. Naturally she can but re-
'ai'd it as the lost opportunity of hor
ife. Others are governed by signs and
omens. One lady rose disheartened be
cause she dreamed she was going to be
surprised. Another, having; bought a
pool on Saunterer, grieved that she
could see no malformed person to
touch, as that would surely bring luck,
and insists now that tho ommision
caused her to lose her money. The
prospect of seeing Hindoo running
tilled the stand with a fluttering crowd,
and the ladies were catching at every
familiaa faue for points. Tho result
has been amusing, and somewhat
dampened their confidence in the judg
ment of their male friends, aa la tho
first race the dark horse came in with
high-paying pools that would have
bought a summer dress at Ruling's or
Connelly's, and their money is on tho
favorite. Letter to N. Y. World. . '
