Capt. N. n.Thl.tlowood, lute of Mas-

In view of tho announcement elte
wliero made in relation to tlio Cairo and
Vincentie s railroad, what do tlie good peo
ple of Cairo think of the nccoity of mov
ing in the direction of building up tlio
mnnufuciuring interests of the city ? Shall
we allow our business in thl' line, which
wo can control, to bo taken from im by
our neighbors nnd rivals, for the wnnt of
n little energy added to moro unanimity ?
How long it will take for Cairo to wnko
up to the nocessity of meeting tlie great
responsibilities, that the completion of tlio
advancing roads will place upon her, Is for
her people lo .ay. For our part, wo do
not need tho cyo of-a prophet to foretell
w.hat, jtnd just whw.il needed, to curry out
such scbemes as will effect tho consumma
tion of nil tlmt Cairo needs.
Like most carpets, everything in life
has two side?, a right and a wrong side.
Now, yotrmay tako any joy, and ly turn
ing it nroun '., find trouble on the other
sidej'or-you may take tho greatest trouble
and by lurtilne; it around find joys on tho
other fide. "Pray, what does this moral
sermon mean," asks Jonos; whero is-tho
point'-?'' "Right hero; Cairo had" her
joy yesterday Alexis, To-day she
turned that joy around and looked at tho
other side when -lol-r-lie found trouble.
Isn't going to como horo is going to
Louisville, thonoo to Memphis. Then
Cairo this morning took nnotlior look at
tho other side, and turned it around so as
to bring tho Joy side, front to faco. Pretto'
Alexis will oomo and Cairo is happy.
Caution; don't keep turning tho thing
nrour.d too much, or all hands will get
dizzv and seo double, nnd instead of one
