The Mound City 'Patriot' 6nys that
Cairo has given notico that she will bo

It has been totally neglected. Tho gentle

wo presumo tho fault will bo laid nt tho
door of the nowspapers, because thoy did
not pick tho people abuso them into do

Why cannot tho city build sidowalks
and mako improvements by special assess
ments? Wouldn't that bo a better plan
than to make theso expensive improve
ments and pay for them with orders on
nn empty treasury? Mr. Lansdon, tho
mnyor, is a lawyer, nnd cannot tolerate
ignoranco of tho why or whereforo of
anything dono or left undono by' tho city
government, but wo should liko to know
something about theso assessments nevertheless.
PolickCouht. Daniel Lynch appeared

Now, that doubts aro removed from tho
minds of uvoit tho most skeptical as to tho
present stability and futuro grcatnoss of
our city, wo must not, liko many of our
sister towns nnd cities, fall Into tho fatal
orror of cxpocting too much from abroad,
nnd lying comparatively still and inactivo
at home. Activity and enterprise at homo
attracts attention nnd capital abroad. We
should never far n moment allow ourselves
to forget that our progress Is anxiously
watched and waited for by men of largo
means, nnd men whoso Influence, wielded
in our behalf, would bo of incalculable
benefit.
Whenever such men becorno satisfied of
our determination, ns a city, to build up a
commercial mart that will rank second to
nono In tho State in dofinnco of all oppo
sltion, capital will as naturally flow to our
ussutunce ns tho waters of tho two mighty
rivers upon which wo nro situated flow
down stream. Wo shall mako mention
through tho Bulletin, from timo to time,
of tho much needed institutions in our
city, and which, if.built up and carried
into successful operation, will not only, udd
much to its intrinsic value, but in tttno
yield n hnndsomo remuneration to tho
operators.
It seems to us that thero could bo no
better investment made just now, nor ono
that would bo of more general utility to

less, nnd whoso meant would all be ab
sorbed wero thoy compelled to build, aro
coming in upon ut overy day, nnd those
who aro fortunate enough to find vacan
houses remain, while tho unsuccessful
ones aro compelled to teek other fields for
tho employment of their capital and labor.
And then, in many cases, it becomes an
net of charity, in its proper sense, to bavo
good tenement houses for occupancy by
thoso who aro destitute of available means,
but who bavo strong hands and willing
hearts, and are ready to avail themselves
of any opportunity to "turn an honest
penny." Will tome ono tako this matter
in hand?
Othor cities have similar societies in suc
cessful operation, tho results of which aro
beneficial in overy seme, and would, no
doubt, provo so hero if properly conducted.
The effort now being mado by certain
mombors of tho council to havo St. Mary's
park enclosed is entitled to tho encourage
ment of tho public. Cilro should havo
ono "breathing place," whero tho citizens
might havo their picnics and other cele
brations, and if tho council allows St
Mary's park to go much longer unim
proved it will vnnlsh go up bo gobbled
by thotrustocs of tho Cairo City Proporty.
Wo should think this hint ought to bo
enough to start all tho anti-Taylor men in
tho city that llttlo band oT noise-making
citizens to crying : "A fonco for tho
park, or tho reason why I" Go In, boys;
and let us mako this thing howl. In this

boforo; nnd, bosides, until it is fenced, tho
city cannot prevent tho trustees from tnk.
ng off tho park 'slices of land, which
habit has already slightly curtailed tho
fair proportions of St. Mary's. This fenco
matter, thon, Is nn Important ono; and wo
hope tho gallant Swayne who is always

It to an issuo.

What the town wits say. Tho
town wits are enjoying Mr. Munn's card
und hit "straight" tonguo (pen), to their
heart's content, and ho himself is tho Pick
wlcklan " lion of thu hour." Somo of
them go so far as to say that when Mr. M.
shall havo ceused to " nurso his wrath,"
and his eyes have quieted down from a
"lino frenzy rolling," ho will, under cer
tain conditions, shake off tho Grant collar
which so severely gulls his neck, and put
on tho mild Greeley yoke. Tbo sharpest
wits prophecy, (knowing Dun's sensitive
wcukness for revenue roast goose,) that
should tho Democratic convention to meet
ut Baltimore indorse thu Cincinnati nom
inations, or break up without making uny,
thoreby insuring Horaco Greeley's olec
tlon, tho lion, gentleman, with Dave und
Pat tugging at his coat tall, will wear
ship, nnd cotno round undor tho leo of tho
Bur. Mr. Shores. Mr. Shores hlmsolf Is
of that opinion. In that case Daniel
might still retain tho gooso. P. P. says
ho would rather ,havo Grcoiey gooso than
no trooso. P. P. is correct.
Mr. 3Iunn very neatly closes his card
with nn allusion to thu groat Philosopher's
aversion to Intoxicating liquors and lying
an excellent trait lit the character of our
futuro president. But It is an open ques
tion umongst the said wits, whethor tho
referenco to wlno und whiskey was not
meant for u sly hit ut his uid-de-camp, Da
vid l.lnegar, rri. ir tno lying part,
Mr. Munn's disllko to Grooloy can now bo
very easily accounted for, on tho score o,
Greeley's hatred of thut vlco. Undor tho
Greeley dynasty Dan will no doubt re
form. If "dirty-work" Logan " flops," as
tho loan boy about town remarks, Munn
will vot bo seen to throw up it whito hat
and heard to "yell" for John Horaco of
