peoplo, but with an apparent purpoc to I
dc'troy the effect of what It had done, it !
declared that tho bonds should draw no '
interest until ufter thy completion of the ;
road, and that, in tho event of a fuiluro to '
complete the road in twoycari- they should '
bu absolutely void. Tho "donation cor.- '
traet'' of November, 1807. which the com- ;
pany deMrcd revived and extended, and '
upon the revival and ei tension of which
thu negotiation for money depends, was
ignored by tho Court, and action taken
which was not only not asked for, but of
a nature which dcitroys itself, and, wo
fear, the railroad project also.
Addressing Judgu Bros, General Khuni 1
employs the following emphatlclunguage:
I stutc to you most solemnly, and In all
candor, that tho fate of" tho Cairo
and Vincenne railroad it in
tho hand of tho County Court of Alex
ander county. If you with to defeat tho
success of tho work, continue to refute to
carry out the "donation contract." If
you earnestly desire tho piosperity of
your city, by securlnc the completion of
tho road, call your court together and pass
an order extending tho time for tho re
sumption of work, and tho completion of
ine roaa unuer tno "uonntion contract. t
i am no alarmist but l warn you of the
danger of the course your Court has taken.
U is a vain delusion to think, because
Cairo is at the confluence of two great riv
ers, that railroad must necessarily tcek
it as n terminus. Already combinations
aro made, and making, to divert to other
point trade that should naturallycome to
Cairo. Evansville by four roads, and I
Shawneetown by two, will soon draw off i

Hero is a solemn declaration from tho
attorney of the company, who is familiar
with the character of tho negotiations on
tho foot, and with all matter pertaining to
business and ability of the company, that
it is with the County Court of Alexander
county to securo or defeat the completion
of thu Cairo and Vincennes railroad! Wc
need not say that tha nction of the Court
Iius been of an adverse charactor lvostilo
to tho enterprise, anc! in contempt of tho
wishes of four-fifths of the voters and tax
payers of Cario, and of a largo majority
of tho peoplo of Alexander county. For
this action Judge Bros is responsible 1 If
he is in doubt as to tho will of tho peoplo
in the premises; if he believes his action
I indorsed by a majority of thj peoplo
of the county, let him resign his position
as County Judge, and seek a re-election
upon tho issuo raised by the application
of tho railroad company for an extension
of tho "donation contract" entered into
in November, 18C7. Tho mnttcr I one
of vital conscquenco not only to Cairn, but
to n largo portion of Southern Illinois,
and no man, unless supported by tho peo
plo has a right to thapo or control it. It
is, therefore, a duty Judgo Bross owo to
tho public interested, to resign his oUleo,
and seek an indorsement of his course in
a candidacy for re-election. Of tho re
sult of such a contest wo untortaln no
doubts. Judgt Urost would not rrcche one
hundred votes in (he dig of Cairo I HI
personal popularity, his social, genial na
ture, tho warm personal friendships ho
has formed, would not, in such an
issue, rescuo him from an over
whelming defeat, lit this way thu will of
our taxpayers could assert itself; Alexan
der county would rostoroher subscription
to it original footing, other counties
would follow the lead, and thus tho ob
stacle.), which it Ik now alleged, Mutid in
tho way of a resumption, of work on tho
road and dolays the payment of tho debts
of tho company, would bo removed.
It may occur, howevor, that Judgo
Bross may continue "to not caro a d n"
fur public opinion in this connection, and
refuso to resign his otfiico. In that ovont
tho only resort left to our peoplo will ho
the preparation of a bond for tho amount
of the county' subscription, nnd contain
ing a condition that If, before tho expira
tion of throo yecrx, Alexander county
does not issuo hor bond including all ac
crued interest, according to tho term
agreed upon, that then tho lgncr of said
