It is reported that tho object of the
several Illinois Central railroad dignitaries,
in their recent visit here and their trip over
the Mobile and Ohio road south, was to cx
amine into tho feasibility of forming a
combination with the managers of the lat
ter road, by which the Illinois Central road
would take all tho north bound freight
brought to East Cairo by the Mobilo and
Ohio' and give to that road all the freight
bound for points along its line and brought
to Cairo by the Illinois Centrat road. One
of the important advantages accruing to
the Illinois Central from this arrangement,
would bo very largo additional yard room
of which it is in great need. Whether the
rumor ia anywhere in the vincinity of the
truth will ( probably bo developed within
the next week or two.
Tho large and elegant new residence of
Mr. C. R. Woodward was last
night the scene of a very
interesting gathering of many of our
best society people, the occasion being tbo
reception tendered by Mr. Woodward to
the High School graduating class of '83.
The gathering was large, as musf be infer
red from the fact that the parlors of the
residence were thronged with people.
Music, song, feasting and an exchange of
happy thoughts were the means which
made several hours fly almost inpcrceptibly.
Tho affair will be recalled with pleasure by
all who attended it, for many years.
Tho St. Louis & Cairo railroad com
pany has engaged Civil Engineer Charles
Thrupp to make another survey along the
Mississippi side of the city. This time the
survey is to he made cutsido of the city's
new levee, at out where the road now runs
and has been running into the city when
ever water would permit. The object seems
to be now to ascertain which would require
the greater expenditure of money: to act
upon a proposition based upon the plan
agreed upon between the council joint com
mittee and Col. Hamilton, or to do what
the city has been trying to get the company
to do for three or four years now, and come
into tho city on the piece of ground tho
road now occupies. Two or three years
ago Col. Taylor offered tho railroad com
pany a right of way just where the tracks
are now located, and it is just possible
that, when this survey shall have been
made, those at the head of the company,
who have for these several years stubbornly
and often very stupiddly combatted an
amicable aud equitable settlement of the
differences between the company and the
city, will be in a humor to meekly submit
to an energetic kicking, for not having
lose three or four years ago what the city
wanted them to do and what they see at
last is and was best for them todo. In this
i istance the foolishness of vindictively ad
hering to a purpose to override the rights
and interests of the people, common to
many small railroad corporations, is strong
ly illustrated. But it is consoling, even at
this late day,tosee that time and necesssity
can bring even a little railroad company to
a realization of the advisability of mani
festing a little good sense and a spirit of
fairness in its dealing with communities,
and we shall hall with pleasure the day
when the announcement shall be made
that the St. Louis & Cairo railroad trouble
is a thing of the past.
Some dissatisfaction is manifested in
several quarters, at the nomination by the
mayor and confirmation by the city coun
cil, of Richard Taylor, the negro, as police
constable; and a pressure has been brought
to bear upon some of the councilmon who
voted to confirm the nomination, to recon
sider the vote by which Taylor was con
firmed and then reject him. Although we
have made diligent inquiry as to the real
causes of this feeling ogainBt Taylor, we
have failed to discover little other than that
he is an independent sort of man, both in
thought and deed, being disposed rather to
ttive advice than to take it. He is one of
the few negroes who have dared to carry
this independance into state politics, in
utter disregard of the Republican party
lash, aud this may be, in part at least, the
cause of tho antagonism with which his
confirmation has met. We have made in
quiry in vain, even among his most hearty
and talkative opponents, for anything im
peaching his character or questoning his
cmpetancy tor tho position to which he has
been elevated. That he is an intelligent,
a representative colored man, is attested by
the fact that he has been prominent for
years in the conventions of his people aud
that he now holds a position in the lower
house at Springfield. Besides this, so far
as we know, he may be relied upon in cases
where integrity and deliberation are essen
tal qualities, aud these doubtless were the
main guides of the mayor in making his
selections. As yet there seems
to bo very little reason for con
demning Taylor; the feeling against him
seems to be pretty much of a personal
nature. Certainly we shall not join in this
condemnation of him until his future con
duct as nn officer shall j ustify it. We have
almost unbounded faith in the mayor's
good judgment; we know that he has
great responsibilities resting upon him, and
he will be held responsible, in a great
measure, for tho manner in which the city
government in all its branches, (especially
in the executive branch) is conducted. We
believe, therefore, that ho should have full
scope in the selection of those who are to
aid him in tho execution of the laws; that
ho will select, or, rather, hns selected, only
such men as ho believed can and will per
form tho duties of their respective offices
faithfully and well, and that he will see that
they do perform their duties thus, or, if they
don't, will get other men that will. In this
belief we rest quitoly until time and events
shall prove it erroneous.
Thk following paper by Miss Mary
Ualliday, read at the meeting of the Wo
man's Club and Library Association Wed
nusday afternoon, Is full 0f beautiful
thoughts, and will bo found very Interest
ing to tho careful reader:
TUOUOHTS ABOCT LIM.
When we stand and gaze on a new born
babe lying in its nurse's arms the first ques
tion that presents itself to our miuds is
what will life be to him! Such a dainty
object is before Us! Tho breath comes so
faintly as scarcely to dilate the little nos
trils. Tbo will and muscular power aro too
weak to do more than cause the arms to
move about in an aimless sort of a way.
Yet the soul has taken up its abode there
and that frail, helpless bit ot humanity is
destined to live forever. What wo see is
already the casket that holds a priceless
gem. Time only will show whether it will
be cut and burnished to shine ss a star in
tho Savior's crown or left in the rough to bo
kicked about under tout and at last lost in
God has first given this gem into the
keeping of the mother. Some writer bus
told us that God could not be everywhere;
therefore, lie made mothers. To a child
the mother represents God. She is the
highest authority, the greatest wisdom, the
supreme ruler of his little worll. In her,
perfection is embodied.
Her smile is the first to bring forth an
intelligent anBweriug smile. Her name the
first the baby lips utter. She guides the
first steps when the timid little one would
not dare to take a trip across the room, but
for his mere trust in his mother's strength
and will to guide him. To the mother
then belongs the first cutting of the gem.
Dare we speak of woman's sphere as nar
row and contracted when into her hands is
given the most important work; the most
precious trust the Lord commits to mortals?
What will be the mother's place in that
time which tho Lord calls the day "when
I make up my jewels." In tho petty wor
ries and cares of life that come to a moth
er's lot, when she tires so of her ceaseless
round of duties, she forgets sometimes the
important place she fills in the great econ
omy of God. In tho daily tread-mill of
her work-a-day lile she sometimes forgets
to look to Heaven for light, strength and
hope. Then down from Heaven into Iht
children's souls where a bright bit of
heaven-born glory is Enshrined.
But there are other ins'ruments brought
to work at the gem. Other home in
fluences, chosen companions most of all the
will-power of the child. With the wise
curbing and the guiding of this all the
rough points may be rubbed down and the
gem begins to send forth bright rays that
show whereof it is made.
Let a child learn to control himself and
turn bis thoughts into pure, noble, Christ
like channels and the soul soon begins to
expand. Teach a child to be sorry for sin
and go tell Jesm he is sorry, to go for' help
only where real help is to be found and the
rough work is done. Henceforth the pol
ishing goes stealthily on until, when mid
dle age comes and the man begins really to
mount the hill of life, the casket itself be
gins to reflect the getn.
How the brightness shines out at the
"soul-windows !"' Not with the dim flick
ering of the lamp nearly empty of oil; but
of the well-trimmed lamp shining with a
steady light that shows the soul sees high
er, purer things tlnn those about it. Aud
the voice, too, what a heart ring it has! It
has gained its rich sweetness by long years
of converse with the "still, small voice"
from the spirit world. The grasp of tho
hand is firm and gentle; dm from long
contact with that Invisible Hand to which
it has so steadily clung and from which it
draws its strength; gentle because the
Guide that directs is the gentlest of beings.
In this tho power of association manifests
itself and the follower naturally ass'imes
the manners of his Guide.
The ordinary smile of old at0 is going
down the hill to the crave. But is this
right und natural? If tho life be true and
the soul bright and ready for the Master's
use we are constantly mounting higher.
Till old age finds us, not in the valley, but
with Moses on Mount Nebo, gazing with
undimmed vision into tho promised land,
way above the clammcr ami strife of the
struggling mass in the valley below.
Life in this world is very short. As com
pared with the Great Hereafter it is but as a
rain drop in tho ocean. But it is full of
grand possibilities. Nor are these possibil
ities ideal. They need not be separated
from the commonest, roughest pathway of
life. For they be directly in tho path of
"Who sweeps a room to the glory of God,
makes that and tho action flue."
"Whatsoever thou doest do heartily as
unto the Lord ond not unto man."
The sea ot life may be rough, but when
the waves roll highest and ' tho winds of
passion dash fierce and loud may bo heard
tho voice that spoke on the storm-toBsed
sea of Galilee "Peace, he still." And tho
calm of rest in God will surely follow.
No temptation can come that tho Master
has not already boruo. Is the life lonely
and the heart empty? The love that is
above all lovo is rvady to como and fill tho
empty place. It will so warm and refresh
it as to send rich, red blood leaping through
arteries and veins. Not only will Ho do
this to us but crcato in ut tho desire to
make others as happy as ourselves. Each
of ub cau send many a pebble of kindness
into tho waters ol life that will expand
again and again into rings of good deeds
which, transmitted from ono wavelet to an
other shall go on Indefinitely.
This world is but the doorway of life.
When wo ahull passed tho portal and enter
into life. The joys aud glories of our Etcr-
nd Home will uot only repay us for tho ills
of this life but erase them forever from our
