Mas. E. C. Ford,
Mrs. J. Clark,
The changes in the freight depart
ments of the Wabish and Iron Moun
tain roads here, recently agree 1 upon be
tween Superintendents Moore and Karrigttn,
were to have taken place on the 1st of this
month; but will be unavoidably delayed,
probably for ' another week, in order to
enabUj tbe auditors of the roads to conclude
the straightening out of some compliactions
resulting from tbe consolidation. Several
of tbe check clerks in the Wabash depot
have already resigned. There will proba
bly not bo much change in the yards and
depots of tbe two roads.
After a little while Mr. T. W. Scott
will not consider himself fortunate in secur
ing tbe city printing at twenty-five dollars
per month. lie will find that the amount
received for the work that he will be called
upon to do, will full considerably short of
tbe additional expense ho will be put to in
doing the work as it needs to be done.
Tn Bulletlv can not congratulate Mr.
Scott upon bis success, for it knows from
sad experience that, even under the most
favorable conditions, the price for which
Mr. Scott has offered to do the city', work
is a starvation price, and that bis tempor
ary triumph will bring him ultimate grief.
Some of the cyprians, who have taken
advantage of the excitement attending tin
election, to display them -elves with un
usual frequency and ii g iu ly attire in the
public thoroughfares of the city, either
walking or riding in buggies, will cow be
required to remain in their gilded palaces,
leaving them only on missions of necissity
and then in modest attire so as not to at
tract and offend tho rcspectsble people
whom they nuy meet. Chief Myers began
yesterday to compel a more strict observ
ance of tho ordinances bearing on this
matter, and those concerned will save him
trouble, themselves exposure sod pun
isbmeot, and the public repulsive scenes at
court at:d on the streets, by taking this
A white man named Louis Russell was
captured yesterday by Chief Myers and
Ofllcer Mahanny, at the instance, of Jim
Phillips, the fisherman, who charged Rus
sell with having stolen live fishing nets from
him. Rtisueli virtually admittted tbe theft
after being pinned down with hcts and
questions, and offered to turn them up if
the officers would allow l.iin t go to East
Cairo whero to said tbey were hidden.
Tbo officers acccmpanicd Russell to East
Cairo, but tho nets were not found there,
Russell had deceived them. Search was
then made on this tide of thu river and
thrco of the nets were, after half a day's
hunt, found in tho river some distance
abovo tho Wabash round house. Russoll
was subjected to a preliminary examination
and hold to bail by Magistrate Comings, in
tho sum of two hundred dollars in default of
which ho was sent to the county jail.
Evidently the council acted a little
hasty, at its meeting Tuesday night,
in awarding the contract for tho
city printing to Mr. Scott. Hid the
bids boon referred to a committee, and
proper inquiry made, it would probably
havo been discovered that tho act of incor
poration article 0, section 27, requires that
a large and important part nf the city
printiug, namely tho special assessment no
tices, shall be printed "at least flvo succes
sive days in a daily paper" if such is pubj
lished.in the city in which such assessments
arc mado.' Mr. Scott could of course over
come this and other obstacles by a liberal
expenditure of money; he could begin the
publication of "a daily newspaper," or ho
could have either of tbe two existing dailies
in tbe city do for him such of the city
printing as must bo published in "a daily
nowspaper." The latter would of course be
tho less expensive plan, but it would cut a
good big slice from his monthly allowance.
Tbo work of improving the Wabash
tracks on this division is going rapidly for
ward under tho direction of Superintendent
Moore. It is expected that fifty miles of
the tracks will be made entirely new dur
ing this summer. Several hundred thous
and ties are on hand; five hundred tons of
heavy iron rails and a thousand tons of
steel rails are being distributed Hlong the
line. An unusually heavy traffic is expect
ed; more freight will be taken out of,
brought into, and passed through, this city
during this spring and summer, on the Wa
bash road, than ever before. In order to
facilitate tbe handling of this freight a
perfect system of fast freight has been
adopted, by which every agent along the
line is telegraphed just exactly what car
and what freight to expect at his sutinn,
and when to expect it, the moment the said
car or freight is started on the road. Cars
loaded with freight intended for rapid
transit all bear marks which, being seen by
tbe train men and yard men, will inform
them that said car must go through without
delay to its destination. By this system
which is now in full opperation, freight
trains are as punctual as passenger trains
aro and there have been some remarkably,
rapid shipments under it, for long djs
Captain Waldron has gone to Memphis
to sray that is, he will not return here to
run the cotton compress and the Halliday
Guards. The many people with whom
lie became acquainted during his fitful
Bbiys here, will regret this very much and
the Halliday Guards will regret it very mueh
more. The reason of the Captain's perma
nent withdrawal from Cairo is to be found
in tbe fact that ho has a certainty of im
proving his prospects in a pecuma'ry way,
by remaining in Memphis. He came here
this last time only to compress probably
two thousand bales of cotton for the com
panyand then to return; but when ho got
started, cotton was rushed in on him in such
large quantities that he had to put on an
extra force, run day and night, and had
compressed seventeen thousand bales of
cotton before he got through. Tbe busi
ness of the compress is therefore as lively
as could be wished for. The company is
entirely satisfied with its investment here
and will send a man here next season who
will make the improvements contemplated
by tbe company and referred to in these
columns some days sgo. Captain Waldron
will rejoin tbe Porter Guards at Memphis
and prepare them for the grand competitive
drill that will take place there on the 21st
iasiant, in which companies from all over
tho country will take part. His departure
will be a severe blow to the Halliday
Guards here, who were making such good
headway in military tactics under bis in
struction; but they will probably survive
and get along well under the increased
exertion of Captain English.
GXTENTION OF THE ST. LOUIS AND
The St. Louis and Cairo railroad com
pany are extending their road from East
Carondelet to East St. Louis, a distance of
fivo miles, which will be completed during
the month of May, when they will ar
range to use the Relay depot in common
with other roads entering East St. Louis
after which they propose making arrange
ments to reach the Union depot at St. Louis
from which point the arrival and departure
of their trains will be duly promulgated.
This new arrangement will prove far
more satisfactory to the trave.ing public and
certainly more advantaKeous to tho inter
ests of the company itself than the preseut
way of reaching East St. Louis or St.Louia,
as they are at present using five miles ot
track owned by the St. Louis, Vandalia and
Terro Haute Railway company, which only
admits them to a depot far remote from the
buMness centre ot East St. Louis. In addi
tion to this six miles of now track they are
also building a feeder of fourteen miles
from Columbia and Georgetown, where
tbey will strike rich coal mines and a lino
rock quarry. The bridgo over the Okaw
river ami tho trestle-work on either side are
being ra'sed four feet, which will place
them abovo the highest water known, and
all the low places along the line of road are
to be raised in like manner before tho sea
son. As fast as tho iron rails give out tbey
are to be replaced with steel rails, fiitcen
miles of which havo already been shipped
from the roiling mills. The construction
of the Cincinnati and St. Louis Narrow
gauge 800 miles in length and the St.
Louis, Cairo and Rio Grande Narrow
gauge, 3,500 miles, with the first at St.
Louis and tbe latter at Cairo, gives the St.
Louis and Cairo, Narrow-gauge road a
valuablo northern and southern connection.
Tho energy and push manifested by this
compuny and its chief officials is worthy ot
commendation, and tbey certainly deserve
success in their efforts to reach the Union
