BK SrilE AND ATTKNI) THE RAIL
HOAI) Mr.LTlNO, AT WlNTKlt'S JLOCIC,
TO-NIOHT.
Tin: Cairo and AMnccnncs nnd Cairo
nnd St. Louis roads, would become
competing lines with tho Illinois Cen
tral. Such competition would lessen
tho cost of transportation to and from
Cairo, and relieve our community from
tho onerous and unjust bunions now
resting on it, and held there as with n
grip of iron, by a wealthy corporation.
Will tho chance to break these shackles
be allowed to go by unimproved.
The trade along the route of the
Vincenucs road, is the most valuablo
after which Cairo can reach. Tho
counties nlong the lino nro rich and
prosperous, nnd nro, as yet, without any
rcgulnr market. Let Cairo be the first
to secure this trade by building tho
Vinccni.es road, and she may then
laugh in her sleeves nt tho efforts of
her rivals to compete for this trade.
Tin: conviction is implanted in tho
breast of every intelligent citizen of
Jairo, that unless the Cairo and m-
ecuncs and Cairo and St. Louis railroads
arc completed, and that speedily, Cairo
will be lost sight of in the grand system
of railroads, which are now spreading,
net-like, over the continent. The Cairo
and Vincenucs road will, when com
pleted, form a link in the Southern I'a
cific railroad the most important rail
road enterprise ever projected in this or
any country.
P.i: srni: and attend the Rah,
road Mkktimi, at Winter's Ui.uuk,
To-sitiiir.
Dray.mv.N should remember that
Cairo will be tho headquarters of the
Cairo and St. LoiTii and Cairo and Vin
cennes roads : that Iho trade of thee
roads will bo largely local that is the
people who live along tl.o lino of tho
respective routes and our own mer
chants. They cud nnd begin hero,
and in their operations will bo unlike
the lllinoi-. Central, which transfers its
reigiit ton wharl'boat. nnd thence to
tho steamer leaving tho drayman with
out even a 'smell" at it, as they justly
as-eit.
TliKUK is now u tide in tho affairs of
Cairo, which if takon at its Hood will
lead on to wealth ami prosperity. 1 lie
building of the two proposed railroads,
will, no ono dure deny, beget business ;
business will beget labor and tho un-
migrationto mpply it ; houses must bo
built to Mipply tho iucroa.-e of popula
tion, and property wtliiu the county
and corporate limits, being thus
brought into greater demand, becomes
more valuable. The benefits aro gen- j
eral, and are nut confined to clns-.
The rich and pour t-harc them alike.
The doctrines of the opponents of these
railroads, if put into praetieo, would op
erate in a m inner jut the reverse of
this and under their pernicious teach
ings the t-pot where Cairo now Mauds
would bo as bare of improvements as
their arguments are of reason.

TO-NIOHT.
MK.Mi'Hitj is tho creature of railroads.
They havo made her a city within the
memory of persons not past the middle
age. Her pooplo have fjicnt between
two and thrco millions of dollars to
make a city, where thirty-fivo or forty
years ago was a bluff, tho Chickasaw Ju-
iliaiis, and one white man. Look ut tho
contrast, teiintliland, Ky., on tho Ohio
river, was nt the t-a nietimu a promising
town and contained men of vim and en-
toipriio. They proposed railroads
which would maku hor a iii (,r m,
mean pretentions. Tho citicu. of
Suiithland voted right, but the tuuutiy
precinct- killed the proportion. To
day, one cannot pass by it without hu.
iug amazed at tho dilapidated, worn
out, dead aspect of tho lew old alianties
which lino its river bank. I'aduciih
graced tho prizo and Smithland lot
her chauco forever. Will Cairo
will Alexander county in their own
cause icpeat thu history of Smithland V
THE CAIRO DAILY BULLETIN, SATURDAY, JULY 1, 1871.
The county has made tho issue with
the city. "D n Cairo, nnd her inter
ests too," is tho rallying cry in the rural
precincts. What this spirit of hostility
to Cairo is based on whatcaue orcr-
ales to produce such nn cfleut wo nro
not nble to divine. Those who indulge
in this kind of talk, who nbusc Cairo in
every breath, nre ninong some of the
heaviest land-owners, nnd, proportion
ately considered, smallest t,ax payers of
tne county. Mr. TIios. McClurc, or
Clear Creek, who is in violent op
position to both roads, owns a farm
twelve hundred acres of , which arc im
proved and in cultivation, fenced in
with sawed lumber ; this land will
bring thirty-fivo dollars nn nerc in
open market: upon the same place he
has a large flour mill ; a saw mill and
dwellings. For tho farm, with its im
provements, it is reported that he re
fused $05,000. It is assessed nt 885,
000. There are two large farms on
the ridge, which will bring any day
thirty dollars an acre, under the ham
mer, nnd which nro nsscssed, respect
ivcly nt two nnd thrco dollars per acre
Wo mitiht ndd to this list
but cite this merely to show
tho dilToronco in tl.o asscsHincnt of
country nnd oitv property in the
samo county. Tho assessed valuation
of tho property outside the corporate
limits, is about 8300,000, one-third of
which is owned by Cairo men men
who nro unceasing workers for tho in
forests of the county, as well as the
city. Of tho remaining 8200,000 of
property, at least forty thousand dollars
worth is ownend by non-residents, thus
leaving for tho property-holders proper
outside of Cairo, 8100,000. upon
which to nav taxes or less
than ono twcnty-fifth of the taxes
of tho whole county, while fully uino
tenths of the taxes expended for im
provements arc spent in tho erection of
bridges, repairs on roads, etc.
give these figures and facts, to show
that upon the score of onerous taxa
(ion, or unjust discrimination in tl.o ex
ponditure of the county's rovenues,
these men have no ground for com
plaint. And they know it. In their
blind prejudice, they are repeating the
folly of "biting ofF the nose to spite the
face." For, no' matter how this rail
road matter may terminate, these gen
tlemen must understand that the eyes
of our people have been opened' to this
subject, and propose hereafter to see
that Cairo, as well as the country,
shall have full justice in the assessment
of property and tho expenditure of tho
county's taxes. 1 he favoritism which
discriminates between country and city
interests is played out, and our country
fellow-citizens may make up their minds
to this fact.

taken from a heaven-forsaken corner of

to arouso tho stornest resistance in our
nobler nature It it as follows:
'Mary had n litllo lamb,

And lookek ao Innocently wlao,
Hho called it Horace oroely.

tho press that an Alabima planter, sov
oral years ago, becoming Bntisllod thnt
tho vitality of tho cotton plant was des
troyed only by frost, tried an experiment
with a slnglo plant. Tho second year ho

now it Is twonty-llvo foot high nnd prom

upon as a mere peccadillo, which any woll

and his "district" iuHuencois too valuablo
