The committco then rose and proceeded
n it body to the court-house to hear tho
decision of the court on tho prayer of the
ictlilon presented on Tuesday lust.
IIEFOKK THE COUI'.T.
At hulf-past 10 o'clock tho court re
ceived thu committee, when the following
proceedings tuok place.
Mk. WILSON May it please tho
court, I urn instructed by tho cornmltte o!
citizens who had tho honor to present to
your honorable body on Tuesday last a
petition praying for a restoration of tho
donation contrast with tho 'Cairo and
Vtncenncs railroad cornpanv, to say to
your honors that they appear beforo your
honors tills morning to hear your dcis-
Ion In reference to tho prayer of that
Jl'pok BROSS. I have had no consulta
tion with my colleagues in reference to
this matter and shall wait until they have
expressed their opinions before giving my
view on this subject.
Jcdoe M A ItC II I LDON-I havo reduced
my ccision to writing, and I would ask
Mr. Lynch, tho County Clerk, to now read
it for the information of this committee
Clerk Lynch then read Judge Marchil
don's decision, as follows :
At tho June term of the County Court
for the county of Alexander.
"The Court having heard the petition
of many electors and tax-payers of Alex
ander county, praying for tbo restoration
of the contract heretofore mudo between
the former County Court and tho Cairo
and Vincennes railroad company, known
as the "donation contract." und the address
and arguments which followed tho read
ing of said petition, and having duly con
sidered tho matter in all its bearings, uro
of the opinion that sa'.d ' donation con
trict" was not only unauthorized by law,
but has been entirely forfeited and "mado
roif by tho failure" on the part of said
Railroad Company to comply with its con
dition, and thst, therefore, the county of
Alexander is entirely released from "any
and all obligations under said con
tract. The Court fully recognizes
tho legal force of a vuto by tho people- of a
county, authorizing tho co-inty to sub
scribe to tho- capital stock of any railroad
to pass through or into said county, and is
nt all times ready to carry out the will of
tho people, whenever that will isexprcsicd
through tho ballot-box, and requires only
what may bo lawtull) done, and reudy
nnd willing to subscribe to tho capital
Hock of botn tho Cairo and Vincennes,
nnd tho Cairo and St. Louis Railroads,
placing them upon tho samo grounds, and
in accordance with the vote of tho people
already made. But they cunnot see any
propriety in restoring a contract they be
lieve to bo unwarranted by law, and with
parties who havo heretofore failed to carry
out their ngrootnents, and cspocieUy when
n respectable portion of tux-payers and
voters nro opposed to it. Tho court, there-
lore, leenng deeply uio obligations resting
upon them to promolo tho interests of ail
the pcoplo of said county, so far as they
havo tho power to do n. respectfully de-
clino to grant the prayer of said pe
fJuDor. -McCRITE. I had preparoi
notes containing my opinions on this sub
ject, intending to read them in the hearing
of the Committco this morning ; but last
night Judgo Marchildon submitted to my
consideration tho puper just read, and as
It, generally, expressed my viows I con.
eluded to dispensa with my own notes,
nnd announce my concurrence in Ills
opinion in this matter.
Judof. DROSS. I have not, as I said
beforo, consulted my associate in this
mnttor, nnd havo not written anything in
reference to it; but I will brioily stato
my conclusions. Tho new constitution of
tho Stato forbids a levoy of taxes by the
County Court of moro than threo-fourths
of ono per centum for t.ll purposes with
out a voto of the people. Tho amount
thus raised, at present, will not bo enough
to pay tho ordinary expenses of the coun
ty and the interest on thoso bonds, nnd
I would llko to havo tho people decido at
an election whether they nro willing to bo
taxed to pay tho interest on these
bonds if tlioy nro issued, nnd
whether they would be willing to
havo tho donation contract restored.
I havo always been in favor of such an
election, and havo so informed tho resi
dent diroclors ot tho Cairo and Vincennes
railroad company. If at such an election
tho peoplo voto in favor of restoring tho
contract and do:laro their willingness to
lo taxed to pay tho Interest on tho bonds
I will oboy tho will of the peoplo thus ex
pressed, and us fur as 1 can carry out their
wishes, waiving all my objections to tho
legality of whatever they may by their
ballots order to be dono.
Mil. WILSON Tho committe would
llko to havo n clear understanding of tho
doclsion, and I would tucreforo llko to ask
whother Judges Mitrchlldon nnd McCrlto
nd.lressp bv tho Hon.-
are willing to agrco with Judgo Dross that
tlioy will obey tho ordor of tho pooplo
if tho people should direct through tho
ballot box that this contract should bo

-Mk. WILSON Judge McUrlto may
I then ask, In behalf of tho committco
whether you will nllow tho pooplo un op
portunity todcclaro their will in refcrenco
to this donation contract through tho ballot-box;
by ordering an election to bo
hold at an early day, und whether you
will acquiesce in their decision thus made.
JudoeJ .McCRITE. I can havo no
objection to such an election, und If a ma
jority of the pooplo of Alexander county
should voto to restoro tlio donation con
tract, I would regard It as my duty to enr
ry out their will, and would do so.
Jub t A UCJIILI.DOU 1- !au

opinions I might have about tho matter.

Tho court agree, that, if u majority of
the peoplo oft jo county voto in favor of

in the hands of the com

tno citizens of L'airo, conditioned, that if

that if tho road shall not bo completed

Tliis, Mr. Chairman, is about tho sub
stanco of tho understanding arrived at be
tween tbo County Court nnd your sub
committee. Mn. HALLIDAY.-Tho mombers of
tho court during tho confuronco this ufter
noon, said they would submit tho order
for election to mombers of this committoo
I, therefore, move that tho sub-committeo
bo instructed to confer with the court in
roforenco to that order.
Tho motion was adopted.
Mr. TAYLOR. I did not understand
tho court to say thnt tlioy desired to sub
mit to tho pcoplo tho question of levying
u tsx to pay off the principal of the ponds,
which will not bo duo until twenty years
from (lute. Tlio idea was, I remember,
suggested by Judgo Dross, but ho did not
press It. There U no necessity for tlio
submission of thnt question to tho pooplo
at this time. Any timo within ten years
will answer. I niovo that tho sub-com-
mlttco bo instructed to endeavor tocxcludo
this proposition from tho order for an elec
tion. Tho motion was adopted.
Mk. ODEULY. I move that tho com

amendment, that tho committco shall meet

I Tho facts hnvo been such ns I will vorv

I very good-natured way, whv ho could not

pointing to the placo I had roforenco to.
He said, in a vety boisterous manner, that

tho placo whero it had not been dono mho

that I could havo no objection ; and, ns

According to' tho following report it
will appear that the Natchez, in her run
from Now Orleans to Cairo, has distin

bly. Sho left Now Orlcnns Saturday at
5 30 p.m. with aver 100 po3plo, mado 20
business landings nnd cama to Cairo In 3
days, 1 hours nnd 42 minutes. At- tho
timo of her departure, and during tbo
tint night out a terrible storm provailcd
which retarded her progress. At C land
ings sho lost an average of 25 minutes
each. Tho following uro hor principlo
runs- To Donuldson Villa, S hours 20
minutes; Natchez, 18-51; Grand Gulf,
21 hours; Vicksburg, 20-25; Old Sawn,
18 hours 17 minutes. Deducting her lost

Wo wcro waited upon yesterday Bj?
two gentlemen who announced themselves
through tho medium of a small boy whom
they brought along to do tboir talking, as
President and 'lTcasuro of an association
latoly glued together, with Spauldiog'g
prepared, or something else equally
sticky, for somo object which the boy
could not clearly explain, but which, In
his opinion, promises to havo an extensive
membership If times don't improve. At
tho closo of tho interview tho Prisldent
handed us a pieco of paper upon which
was scrawled tho names of the officers of
tho association which nre as follow! i
0. S. Dolay, President;
Fred. Fulton, Vieo President;
C. R. Kylo, Troasurcr;
A Vat. Fulton, Traveling Agent';
Font Uagcy, Usher;
II. G. Hagoy, Medical Examlnor;
A. A. Arlck, Chaplain;
Milt. Rcod, Attornoy for tho Company.
What tho object of tho association may
bo wo cannot, of course, tell positively, but
we thought wo had n faint cluo to tho
maltor, when upon Inquiry why tho Im
portant oflleo of sterttaty was left vacant,
wo wcro informed that no ono in tho asso
