Almost any young man In Cairo, nnd
at least one-half of our boys, carfplacoonn
dollar per week in the Kntcrprizu Havings
lianlc. If they would do so, thu result
would bo that in ten years tltcy would have
i04 85 theru to their credit, in twenty
years tho sum of $1,H?7 84, and in thirtv
years $4,i77 81. Thus It will bo seen that
every ten-year old boy, who will from this
tlmt forth put ono dollar por week
in the Havings Dank, will bo enabled
whon ho Is forty years of aire, to draw
sum therefrom that will enable him
to enter into tho mercantile lunlnes" or to
buy him a well-stocked farm.
Tin: passage of tho resolution cxUiiding
the time for tho completion of thu Cairo
and.Tlncennes Itailroad, by a tiiiniiimoti
voto of our City Council, is an act thnt
meets thu hearty indorsement of tho citi
xens of Cairo. The amendment, to thu
effect that thu railroad company shall pay
ill debts It liks contracted or that it may
'contract with tho clt' xens priorto January
187I, It a Narlng clatiso" that was Insisted
upon by some or tlio members of tlio
Council, that might have been left otf; but
it will not, liorhap, do any barm. Tho
railroad company la not In debt
to tho citizen of Cairo, me), con
sequently, the nmunduient ha little
other effect than to show u ills
trmt of tho cotupany. The company is in
debt to Messrs. Dodge, Lord A Co., con
tractors, nnd Messrs. D. L. & Co. owe sun
dry amounts to our merchants, teamters
and others; but as thoy (.Messrs. I). I,. A:
Co.) are not citizens of Cairo, the amend
ment docs not apply to them.
s tharels, now, no oltnclu in thu way
of a resumption of work, nt lentt on this
cud of the lino, wo shall expect to tee a

of tho road, but w e bavu with others, been
disappointed by the frequent delays, etc.

tho following facta concerning the return

Charleston boys, played on Monday but ;
"Thu Charleston boys owo tho favorable
result of tho game to the fact that they
wero in the right trim for batting our
captain aud catcher making 111 run', whilo
last week, In tho Cairo game, ho tallied
only two. AVo alio had another strong
batter, who played third baseman equal to

'Thatcher got hurt on tho third Inning,

Our friends in Santa Fo and Thebes
aro becoming as much excited over rail
road matters as wu aro in tills county.
They have heard from some source that
work will soon be commenced on tlio Cairo
and St. Louis road, that tho river rout hns
been decided on. This of course becomes
part of tho great routo from McmphU to
St. Louis and Chlcni-o. Thoso roads will
connect at tlio (irutid Chain, by ferry for
a while, but cro long by a bridge. It Is
also tho intention of the Illinois Central to
build a branch road from Jnuoiboro to
connect with the Memphis branch, nnd
also to connect with tho Cairo mid l'ullon
at Morloy. Those connections, of coursu,
cannot fail to brinir thu 1'enusvlvanln Cen

beforo us, can any man with n yrain of

Tlio weuther was clear from thu Mate of

The Mississippi I nbout stationary nt
St. Louis, and tho rlsu at St. Paul and Du
buquo has ceini.il, and tho river Is ngaln
fulling. It Is still n matter of doubt
who h;r that ri.u will reach t i.ou's ns
it seems to bo wasting away very rapidly.
it I curtain that tho rise will not amount
(o much at that city, even If it reaches u
The Ohio It fulling at Pittsburg, with

Tho P.lla Hughes brought out 1 ,'00 bbls
Hour for reshlpmeiit South, and went to
I'adurah to go ou tho murine ways and re
pair. Tlio work of widening and lengthening
tho Dexter at Mound City is progressing
rapidly under thu superintendence of thine
eminent mechanics, Capt. William Ham
bletoti and Mr. Strcetcr, whoc talent f"r
such work cannot bo surpassed, even if
equalled, by 'any other men )t their lii.o
of business. Thu work 011 thu Dextor it
carried out on a dllferont plan from that
mado use nf in the widening of other boats,
and instead of tho boat running the ri-k of
iiuing mnue weaker by widening, the new
plan make her stronger,
than ever. Instead of being cut In two
through tho centre, ami the new addition
being put In all at one placo, the Dexter
ha been split into three plecei, and the
extra width placed equally on each side,
half way lietweon her kelson and knuckles.
Kntirclynow lloor timbers, nearly twicu
as largo as tho old ones, aro then Intro
duced, reaching clear across from knuckle
to knucklo, leaving tho old timber still in
their places. It Ubolieted that tlift Dexter
will ho moro staunch"than ovr before,
whlloher capacity will be nearly, or quite,
doubled. Hor speed when light will bo 111
great as before, as her lmtv has been cut oil'
cntlruly and a.ncw and bettor model sub
stituted. S Jit! will bo readv for work In
about threu weeks.

slderably wider from Iter wheel home,
forward. Tho alteration, together with
her new fancy top cldmnlcs will iiinkea
considerable Mhango in her appearance. 1
