Mr. Michael Hoar, division road mas
ter of the Illinois Central at this point, is

He left on the 2Ut of June, arriving in
Glasgow, from whence he went to Dublin.
During his voyage across the oceans he be
came so weak that he could hardly walk
when he arrived at Glasgow, and a promin
ent physician there whom he consulted,
feared that he would lose his voice. Mr.
II oar has been connected with the Illinois
Central for thirty-one years, during all that
titne not an accident occurred on tho divis
ion of which he had charge, that was the
result of any disorder of the track or road
bed. The company has repeatedly mani
fested its appreciation of this gool service
in various ways. During Mr. Hoar's ab
sence, Mr. Jerry Donahue discharges the
duties of his position.
The Jonesboro Gazette wants to bridge
the Mississippi river at Thebes, which it
says is the only practicable place for such
a structure. It says that "the survey of the
Jonesboro and Cape Girardeau railroad be
gins next week. The route by the Dug
Hill seems to bit the one preferred, although
persons perfectly acquainted with the
country between this place and the Cape
contend it is the most impracticable route
that could he selected. To begin at a point
about one mile south of Joncsb ro, and go
down what is known as Sugar Camp Hollow,
the bluffs would bo missed, and only one
hill of any size would be to cut, and that
not over fifty feet high. It has become
more iipparetit'each year that the Mississip
pi must be bridged at some point in south
ern Illinois, to afford an outlet for tint hun
dreds of miles of railway in this section.
Thin bridge will bo built at Theb, tho
only practicable place for Mich a structure,
by an addition of a lew miles of track, this
new road could reach the bridge, aud in
tersect the Paramoro system at a point
farther on. Everything is in good si i ape
at present, and thero is no doubt but tho
road will bo built."
Tho following concerning Cairo's
health, coming from the J ackso.i County
Era, a disinterested source, ought to weigh
something in the minds of Cairo's tra
duces: "Wo havn heard the city of Cairo
denominated "a pestilential hole;" tho
liomo of fevers and every form of disease.
Having been a renident ot Cairo in its
worst seasons, wo can knowingly deny
these reports, and from our own observa
tions can safely assert that i. is tho most
hoilthful location between Alton an I the
Gulf. This fact was fully established by
the experience of thu medical department
of tho army during the war. Cairo having
been selected tor a general hospital because
of its salubrious climate, patients improv
ing and convalescing thero more rapidly
thanat any other hospital on the river. Thu
roaaoii given by the general observer for
the supposed unhealthfulness of thu city
is that it lies low, betwuun two rivers and
is nearly surrounded by a swampy country.
All this is true, but the deductions drawn
from these tacts are false. Miasma has af
finity for water. Tho rivers that bound
Cairo on three sides aro each over a mile
wide-tho prevailing wiuds are from the
south and southwest, and all tho breezes
from tho low lands of Kentucky and Mis
souri aro purified of their miasma and ren
dered wholesomo by the great boiies of
water over which tney pass; the only winds
that strike the city without crossing water
aro from tho north, aud these seldom pro
vail tor many hours at a time; besides, the
country in that direction is open, well
drained and covered with as fine farms as
any in the state. The government fully op
predates these facts and is about to estab
lish a marine hospital at that point, for
boatmen from both tho Ohio and Mississip
pi rivers and their tributaries; was thero
any truth in tho reports regarding the in
salubrity of tho location, it would never
have been selected for such an institution."
Ou account of the nervous anxiety
and fearful uncertainty of the Argus, as to
tho feeling of the present city council con
cerning the raising of tho city's grade.it is
suggested that the council to-nightreconsider
the vote by which a former council passed the
ordinanceest'iblishing the present grade.and
ttiat it then repass said ordinance and order
it republished, this time in italics or "small
caps." Aud by way of making the re-af-uriuatiou
more emphatic still and rendering
the ordinance entirely irrevocable, it is fur
ther suggested that the council pass a reso
lution, declaring most emphatically that for
ten years at least there shall be uo flood in
the rivers, in order that the question of
changing the grade ot tho city may not for
that length of time disturb the public mind
and thuscheck buildng enterprise may not
arouse public sentiment in favor of a
changeaud to demand such a change may
not induce the people to elect a council
that will heed the demau I, aud, by a simple
vote of "yea," annul tho italicized, irrevoa
ble ordinance and the iron-clad resolution
of the present couocil, and throw the whole
community into a heap ot chaos, on top ot
an imaginary hill, away beyond tho reaSh
of sipe or any other kind of water. The
council might do this much to-night and
appoint a committee with instructions to
ascertain what effect the action will have
upon the Argus: carefully feel and time
that piper's fluttering pulse; ascertain
the temperature of its fevered brow, and
tho color of its dyspeptic tongue, and re
port these observations to the council at its
next regular meeting. If it shall appear
that the ailment is of a malignant nature,
and that the council's action was inade
quate, the council might repeat the dose,
slightly augmenting its strength: it might
pass the ordinance once again and order it
printed in capitals; it might resolve, in the
stearuest (terms, that thero shall never'
never!! NEVER!!! be another flood in the
rivers; and in addition to this it might make
it a penitentiary offense for any citizens o
think of changing the city's grade aud put
ting such wicked thought into even whis
pered words. The committee should be
made one of the stauding committees of
the council, an 1 it should bo required to
report at every regular meeting of that
body, in detail, the condition, past, present
and prospective, of their patient. The
council should a Itninistcr doses similar to
those prescribed above, at regular periods
of tini", r.nd give the committee power to
call a special meeting in case tho patient's
condition should seem to require an extra
dose. We feel a deep conoern in our Com
mercial avenue contemporary and sympath
ise with it in its sore Hilliction; and we hope
that our sympathy will not bo scorned and
spurned. We believe the people are with
us in this matter and will applaud the
council for any action it may take tending
to the amelioration of the Argus' sufferings.
DEATH OF CAP!'. R. K. RILEY.
A telegram from C. W. King, son of the
one-time Mayor King, of this city, who is a
resident of New York, brought the 6ad
news yesterday afternoon that Captain
Robert K. Riley had die I suddenly at 12
o'clock noon at Mr. Kings' house. The
cause of death was apoplexy, and there
had been premonitions. Cupt. Riley was
oneol the best-known and my-t universally-liked
river men that ever rodo the west
ern waters. Way buck in the '50s ho ran
the Missouri river on some of tho finest
boats Hi that trade, notably the southwest
er. His home was then in HI. I.oum, mid
be ina l't such hosts of friends in tho Madn
that when the o I Memphis and Ml. Ivuia
picket company (now the Anchoi Line)
was or ;ani,"d in I KIWI, the inniiagnm vwrn
glad to necum his mtvieeH, ''rom that
d.i'i) till the time ol his di'iilh -twenty,
three yeais lm was in tin' employ of the
company, always giving tlno servicn and
always in charge ol one of the best crafts of
the fleet, lie has captained in his day a
score of steamers, tho principal ones being
the City of Cairo, City of Greenville and
each ol thr boats which horu the name
City of Vicksburg. The Vickuburg was
his boat at the time rr his death. Ho was
always immensely popular with tho em
ployes, aud sometimes ran a boat for seven
or eight years with hardly a chango among
hid subordinates. Ho was a very portly
man and good-natured and generous to
correspond. On tho 12th oUuly, while on
a down trip, ho had a slight Htrokn which
prostrated him, nod bo camo direct to St.
Louis and remained a few days uuder
treatment n thu hope of recuperating. As
the result was not satisfactory, ho went to
New York, Intending to make a protracted
fishing trip to Barnegat. It was while in
the preparation tor this trip yesterday that
he received his tatal stroko. He was about
57 years of age and was horn and rcarod in
Brownsville, Pa,, whither his body will be
taken for burial. His Iioiim has been for
over 20 years at Cairo, where his wife and a
family consisting of four daughter now are.
They were promptly notified ot tho sad
event, and will meet the remains at tho old
homo in Brownsville.
Capt. Riley owned a moderate property
in Cairo, ami bold some company insurance,
besides being a member of the order of the
Elks, tho Knights of Honor, and the Mer
