With s commerce that is only surpassed
by about five cities along the rivers of tho
west, Cairo owns but two or three smnll
stoamors, and thoy uro comparatively of
littlo uso in tho way of carrying freights.
Thousands of tons of freight aro shipped
from Cairo daily, during a groat portion
of the year, to all points south, and our
steamers, wo may say carry less thnn two
hundred tons of the umouut. No
ellort Is made to obtain oven u
fraction of tho southern bound freight,
which constitutes thu great bulk of
our commerce, whllo Evansvlllo insists on
owning all tho packots which run between
that city nnd Cairo. For n short tlmo Cal
ro had ono boat in that trnuo, but ovcry
otl'ort posslblo was nindo by citizens of
Evnnsvillo to keep freight nnd passengers
nwav from hr and give it to tho two
boats owned in thnt city.
I ns tend of bundling nt least n smnll por
tion of the freight which pnsses through
Cairo southwardly, wo glvo tho wholo of
It to steamers which do not lonvo ono
cent of money in Cairo, if it is in
their power to provent It. Thoy
buy all their stores at other points
havo all their repairs dono nl othor cities
In no way do thoy contribute to tho sup
port und .trndo of our inorchnnts, while
Cairo contributes to them, in tho wny of
freights, many thousands of dollars every
year. And this is not nil. When freights
aro plentiful nt St. Louis, nnd thoro Is u
good stngo of wulor, thoy refuse to rcsorvo
room for Cairo freight, oven whon we off
