The river bank at Eut Cairo is almost
one continuous fleet of boat, barges, etc.,
nearly a mile long and in tome places three
deep all removed from this side to avoid
floating ice which is as yet not very heavy.
The steamer Springer managed to pull
through the ice above and arrived in this
port yesterday. She departed in the even-

and hit lady visitors, alio Mrs. Phillis went
down on her.

The ice in the Mississippi still holds ss
firm si ever notwithstanding a waggish re
port that it had broken Monday night. It is
over a foot thick and extends clear down
te the point on this side and as far above
the city as can be teen. It would afford a
firm footing for heavy wagons and is tested
daily by pedestrians at various points along
Wabash engineers and switchmen are
again attracting the attention of people by
switching more than usual; and yesterday
afternoon an engine with several cars dash
ed up the avenue at the rate of abort 80
miles per hour. These things are known to
be contrary to orders from headquarters and
not absolutely necessary, while they need
lessly annoy and endanger people.
Warm wenther seems to be the next
thing in order. According to last even
ing's weather bulletin, the thermometer
rose all along the line and considerably at
thone points that usually govern the weath
er here. At North Platte the rise was 28
degrees; at Dodge City, 40; at Bismarck,
19. Wind waa west and northwest; sky
generally clear. Nine inchea of snow was
reported from Pittsburg.
A dispatch wu received by Chief
Myers pesterday from the Cook Locomotive
and Machine company, Patterson, N.J
uking him to find J. Keishler, engineer of
the Orant Locomotive works, and send him
home by express, drawing upon the under
signed for the costs snd trouble. It states
that Keishler will probably be without
money, but will have a transferable pass.
No further particulars are given.
The Singer works started up again
yesterday morning, after having stopped
for several weeks for necessary repairs
Whils they were stopped, new boilers were
put in and parts of the machinery made
new and improved. It hu now started for
the year ;hu enough legs in the yards to
lut for three months, and a large number
in the river, which cannot now be gotten
at because ef ice, but will be available long
before they will be needed.
Tramps are very numerous in the
city and besiege citizens at their bomu
deilyjoftenby the half doiens,for some
wing to eat or for work. At night the
officers eeejthem aheltered u well u may be
irom cold, by directing them to the several
engine-houses where glowing fires are kept
up au nigoi nr tnelr especial benefit. The
stoves ia the engine-bousae are generally
pretty well surrounded, too. Tramps have
probably never fared so well in Cairo as
now and would have to travel a considers'
ble distance before they would meet with
equal kindneis from the authorities. But
common humanity dictates that they should
be given what care we cau in these severe
nights and the action of the authorities in
this respect will receive general commends
Haverly'a Comedy company at the
Opera House Friday evening promises to
give us something in the funny line, which
will bear the most liberal patronage. "Our
Strategists" is a gnnuine comedy of errors
and ia said to have a thousand laughs in
every act. The fun begina early and is
retained throughout the evening. New
York, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, St
Louis, Cleveland, Brook ly and San Francis
co papers are enthusiastic in their praise of
both the company and the play.
The transfer Bteamers are still debar
red from landing at the Bird'a Point incline
by the heavy sheet of ice that envelopes it
They have cut a sort of canal through the
Ice, from the point to the Missouri ahore
opposite Mr. Bird's bouse, over hull a mile
long and wide enough to permit balsto
turn arouud and pass each other; and pass
engers coming in either on the 1 exas & sr.
Louis or Iron Mountain trains must leave
the cars there and walk aboard the steam
ers over a gang plank, to be transferred to
Cairo. The Morgan and Duncan have, by
running frequently back and forth, man
aged to keep this canal open during the se
While railroads generally have suffer
ed much from the late snow storm in the
Mississippi valley, those centring hers
have managed to come through very well,
comparatively speaking. Trains have
come and gone every day on nearly all the
roads, the only trouble being an uncertainty
u to the time of arrival. Yesterday's train
on ths Illinois Central, from Chicago, was
only about an hour and a half behind the
schedule time. The Wabash was a little
less fortunate, probably the polar wave se
eded it as a line of travel. The train due
here at 10 o'clock Monday night did not
arrive until 8 o'clock yesterday morning.
The snow was especially heavy between
here and Carmi, and water tanks all along
ware frozen up. The Iron Mountain has
been prevented from coming in daily by
the ice at the Missouri incline, though the
trains arrived regularly enough at Bird's
Point. The little Texas & St. Louis was
subject to the same difficulty. The Mobile
& Ohio and the Southern Illinois Central
were not troubled much in any way and
came in nearly on time. But the little
St. Louis & Cairo road beat them all, for
throughout this week or ten days of "wind
and weather," it has come and gone every
day on schedule time with every train, and
probably made things too warm for Old
Boreas. Or, perhaps, Capt. Williams sent a
ray or two ot bis beaming counteuaace
along the line at regular intervals, and thus
melted the snow from the track sod kept
the tanks in running trim.
Young men of Cairo, like young men
elsewhere, have doubtless been resoluting
little during the last week or longer.
They have resolved to do tu&ny things that,
in the past, they failed to do, and to not do
any more many things which in the paat
they did to their injury, perhaps also to
their sorrow. But there is one thing which
perhaps many of them have forgotten to
notice in any ol their resolutions, viz, the
habit of going into debt. It is not to be
inferred from this that many young men in
Cairo are in the habit of going into debt
not at all. There are probably a less num
ber of youthful, chronic debters in this
city than in any other of its size. But
there are a few who need very much to
resolve and to keep the resolution to pay
hi they go and uo: to ''go" if they can't
pay. The many, also, who ore happily out
of debt, would not be injured, either in
pride or purse, to pass a similar resolution,
for they may thereby be induced to avoid
giving way to a Btrong emptation in the
near, uncertain future. It is not
open to dispute at all, that one
of the most latal steps a young man can
make is to contract a debt. It mortgages
his future. It means in nearly every case
that he is living beyond his means. Debt
is what ruins so many of our business men.
They begin with small accounts and as
their busidess increases they increase their
accounts and finally their habits of living
become so expensive that the debts begin
to far exceed the returns of business. The
result is failure, disappointment and dis
grace. A young man starts out in life. He
is quick, apt and successful. He gains the
confidence of employers and acquaintances.
He is honest and upright and merchants
had rather have a bill against him than not.
He is nattered by the confidence that is re
posed in him. He buys fine things, goes in
good society and from a frugual mode of
living be gradually branches out into an
expensive style. At first his debts were
small and be found no trouble in meeting
them. But they have now become a bur
den and to straighten things out neces
sitates a vigorous struggle. Self denial
comes harder than it once did, and the
debt becomes a matter of worry that will
not be quieted. If sickness comes, instead
of having a fund to draw on there is a de
ficiency -hat each day's illness makes lar
ger and more difficult to wipe out. There
fore, again, "pay as you go."

Americans are telling us that Boston
no longer meintaino her literary pre
eminence. The authors who made her
famous have nearly all died out, and she
has none of equal not te take their
Elace. The great publishers are now to
found in New York and Phil-del
hia. In short, Boston ia losing
er distinctive character ia learning ta
care for new wealth and Paris fashions,
and will soon, in all probability, look
back with wonder, half regretful, but
half-contemptuous on the time when
she waa known as the Athens of Amer
ica. Bnt certainly for soma fifty yeara or
mors the position of Boston was remark
able enough. Other cities might boast
of an aristocracy of birth, or fortune.
or politioal power, bnt here was to be
the aristocracy of intellect. There were
many old families at Boston, end much
wealth; bat the thing of which to be
prond waa intellect. Cambridge uni
versity waa close bv, and there was a
constant mingling of merchant princes
and illustrious professors. Culture in
its noblest sense wae tbe most import
ant pursuit of life, and the best society
wastnatwhion bad been refined bv
culture and ennobled by a love of let
ters. These were the yeara when Preaoott
and, later on, Motley wrote their Span
ish histories, and George Tkknor his
Eest work on Spanish literature,
mgfellow, Lowell, and Holmes, and
other leu known poets were showing ua
mat America oould produce song of
varied power and beauty. At Concord
Hawthorne was writing hu wsird stories,
and Emerson promulgating his mvstic
philosophy. Agassix had aome over
from Switzerland, end, with an ardor
scarcely surpassed by Darwin, wae ex
ploring the secrete of the world of nature.
Webster, and Everett, and Charles
Sumner were stirring the hearts of their
hearers by their casual speeches or
their set "orations." Dr. Channing
was exerting an influence over religious
thought which his admirers fondly be
lieved would extend far beyond the
limits of Boston, and Norton and other
divines of the same school were justi
fying the new theology on the ground
of its scriptural basis. Lastly, Theo
dore Parker was breaking loose from
bis early teachings, and resting belief
on tbe somewhat shifting dictates of
man's conscience. And these were only
the leaders of that remarkable society.
