them upon the subject, are against the high

gle name. This is endrely in keeping
with the Argus method of warfare. An
intelligent and fair discussion, and coin ct
conclusions, are impossible when one party
resorts to all manner of Biibteilugcs, to
sweeping denunciations, to mere assertion,
and denials without a shadow of reason or

--Those gentlemen who believe that the
security of the levees should be assured be
fore extensive internal improvements nre
begun take a very corn et tiew of the ma
ter. Thev take the same view that Mayor
- - - - j -
Halli day took and express'd in his inau
gural address. But they or, at least, souie
of them do not seem to be aware of the
very important fact that this rren qu site
is nlrea iy accomplished; that the security
of nil our levees is already equal to iim as
sured ficr. Onlv vesferdav the woik of
further strengthening the city's lew?, win
completed. For weeks Col. Taylor has had
a str ng force of men at work on the only
point along the whole splendid em
bankment surrounding us, where there w s
any indication of insecurity, and this spot
has been made entirely secure. The St.
Louis and Cairo ro&l began on Wednes lav
1 1 carry our its contrict with (M. fay lor,
to have thn Mississippi levee, from the city's
levee down, inaoiseJ in height an 1 in
width; and last, but by no me ins least, the
Illinois Central compiny has nearly done its
grtitworkon the Ohio lev e, rend-ring it
apparently impregnable and insurmounta
ble by any possible flood. This state of
thing', ns we have before stated, murks the
conclusion of the first part of the progarniiie
marked out in Mayor Halliday's inaugu
ral, and the second part, that of internal
improvements, is now in order. We are
now as secure' from overflow as we ever
can be without tilling our streets within our
embnnkments-without raising our pr p
erty, our city, above high- ater mark. We
would impress the though' s'rongly upon
the minds of the p.'ople, that Cairo does
not suffer from actual danger, but from
imaginary danger, and fluxe, wlm ludievc
that if our levees were e'ghty or a hundred
feet wide there would not he. that ptnl1
ing fear among many of our citizens wh'oi
the river crawled day after diy shovly to
ward the fop, reached within a fo d of it,
and still continued to rise slowly but stead

er would feed any great confidence in Hie
security of what of value thev saw in the

ly apparent from the publi-he 1 reports nf
the interviews, namely, that va have too
many hermits among us, too many abject
slaves of the count s and the ofhVotripol;
too many men who don't know
what is going on around
them Mid who believe less than I. ill
the newspapers tell them, without caring or
trying to find out whether it is all true or
not. These men look at their surrounding.,
through smoked glassi s twenty yeara obi;
some of them seem to have even indefinite
impressions that Cairo is a worse city in
every way than she was; that all around her
is a barren wa-tr, nil within her lament
tibh; stagnation and gloom, and that she is
actually on the verge of that impossible
state of cussedness suggested by thu Mun
ehaiisen of the Argus as the result of a well
considered attempt to place her upon tin
high road to greatness. These citizens are
doing themselves and their city a great
wrong, and these impressions are the exact
reverse of the truth. It is true, Caito has
gone through a great deal of late years; she
lias had repeated fits of t.rosneritv
during which every citizen was hopeful of
a great forward stride, Hnd always, when
these tits were at their height and promised
moi', they were suddenly , nilde to subside
by the rising river, and our people woiib
relapse into their normal s'atc of conmnra-
tive hopelessness. All this only proves ihV
the odd and certain htumbling block in
Cairo' way lo permanent prosperity is 1 1,.
periodical high water scare, und this cm
ouly be prevented by yetting out ct th
saucer. But, in view of all these seiioiis
iliii.vbiu ks, Cairo is in an excellent condi
tion in every way; shu is safer against the
floods I haii she ever waR, and her prospects
right now are brighter than thev ever were.
The business men and citizens should spend
more finie out doors in the fresh invigora
ting bree.cs that sweep over our city; they
should take drives around the levees and
smc rou TiiKMsrxvKs what great
work has been done on tin in;
they should drive out into the country and
see .some of the magnificent farms there are
in this and adjoining counties. A drive
of thin kind would do their souls, their
min Is and their bodies good; would give
thrill more correct views of Cairo's pie-iid
condition and her future possibilities;
would tell them what ought to be done in
order fo d( velope these posibilities, and
would give them a very small, but a vey
correct, opinion of the Cairo business man,
who mopes about his olliee, grunting and
giow ling nt "the dulhieHs of trade" while

AN IMPORTANT ERROR.
'I h' re seems lo be an impfe-seei existing
among some few of our citi 'tts, tha' if all
the low places in town were filled up to the
prr-sf nt grade of W ishingoii an I Commer
cial avenue, all would be s rene and
tin; sipc-water annoyance be a thing of the
past. Some of the same persons w ill admit
that they hive seen the sipc-water coming
out of the groun I at an elevation above the
gcile mentioned, They know well as
tlo y know the sun rises, that tie' s:pe water
Howe,! freely up through the groii.i l in the

water of lv', and ran down upon the
streets fillet to that grade; they know that
the s .me was the case on the high ridgts
le-ar Mr. Lies Richer'. gardens and else
where, and yet, in spite of this knowledge,
or ignoring it, they express the belief that
siie waer would not appear ltitbi city if
the low places were filled up to the same
grilewith th'se leaking ridge: Where
an-the powers of percep'ion and reflection
of these g.-nth'tilen?
Some of the geu'lemen, whose attention

places in 1SSJ and

and without !)' reflection as to cost or ef

and let h'T g i." But this question is not to
be disposed of in So thoughtless a tn inner.
Th" fact that sipc-water would run into the

But again, others object that tint filling
along Commercial avenue, between 5th and
10th sheets is not practicable, because
there is no sewer along that portion of the
avenue, to chain the lots bordering thereon.
But there are .sewer pipes from flth. to 5th,
wheie they connect with the main sewer, sh
also one from 9th to 10th, on Commercial
avenue. T here is also a sewer along Eighth
strcerf'roin Commercial avenue to Wash

show how small a pretext s uiio men will
m ike a weapon of to tight anything they
are at the outset opposed to. Ibnv small a
matter it would be to put a sewt rpipein
