We call atlontion to tho communication
of Publico In another place, and would be
pleased to hear from others on tho same,
and kindred subjects. Wo aro unable to
say what provision tho managers of tho
Cairo and Vincennes railroad proposo to
make for tbo accommodation of our mer
chants who aro all located down town,
rather below Fourteenth street, but it is
our impression that tho track will bo ex
tended down Commercial avenuo to tho
business part of tho city, and that con
signments of freight will bo unloaded on
tho truck, just as tho cars of tho Illinois
Contral aro handled on front street now.
liut if tho avenuo could bo put in proper
condition to cart oyer in hard weather, it
would bo bettor for tho convenience of
our citizens in goneral, and much better
for appcaranro and safety, that tlio track
hould stop at tho dopot in tho uppor por
tion of tho city. Over good roads
tho distanco would bo nothing in
comparison with that of other cities,
where a much larger amount of lreight is
handled than can possibly como over thu
new road for somo months after its com
pletion, and our draymen would find some
thing to do.
While on this subject wo might call at
tention to tho fact that tho completion of
tho Cairn and Fulton road to Uloomfleld,
which will occur shortly, will necessitate
the building of n highway from tho city
to tbo Mississippi river opposllo Green
field's landing by como one. If it is tho
duty of th city to do all tills work tho
city fhould bo thinking about it. If not,
wo should see that those whoso duty it is
should bo at work.

parcd for this trado that Is bound to como

There It ono other matter to which I
would call the attention of tho city. It is
tho denlorablo condition of our lnvees.
Strangers, who only havo tho opportunity
of seeing this levee, and who can havo no
Idea of tho business dono on it, will
nniiirnllv think that tho citizens aro
slovenly and backwards in improvement
Such ideas taken away by tho crowds of
strangers Unit annually got a sight of
Cairo, aro tho primo causes of tho mis
representation and defamation of Cairo
Thuro nro somo of course, who will
obli-ct to these improvements. Such men
must bo thrown overboard. 1 am satis
lied that tho majority of tho citizens nro
In favor of such improvements, especially
whero they conduce to tlio prosperity of
tho business of tho city, and
what ciiii bo moro conduclvo to this
prosperity, than good streets and lovces
enabling the transaction of business with
facility. It will cost tho city something
to mako these improvements. Somo m-iy
say that tho city cannot aflord tho outlay
necessary, nnd that it is not tlio business
of tho citv to repair tlio loveo. Let ui
mako it tho business of tho city to do so
I am suro whatever atl'ects her Interests is
her business. If wo lio supinely on our
backs, waiting for others to do what should
should bo done, wo will wait longer than
wo havo ulrcady, beforo anything will bo
dono. Lot us depond upon ourselves
and not on others: but whero It Is tho
businoss of othors to mako those improve
ments, Is thero no way to forco them to
do it? Now is tho llmo to work these
mattors up tho beginning of a now oni
in tho commercial history of Cairo. It Is
an indisputablo fact, that ncc
ossary and judicious improvements
pay for themselves beforo they
need ronowal. This Is a go-ahead nj:o.
Let us not ho behind it. If unything let
us lead the van. Therefore, 1 say by all
means let us havo Commercial avenuo nnd
thu levees In proper condition to enablo us
to handlo goods with facility and dispatch.
Wo will then bo able to handlo tho first

Editou Bulletin : Sinco tho Cairo
and Vincennes railroad will, in all prob
ability, bo completed and in running
order this winter, and tho general convic
tion seems to bu llmt tbo lreight depots
will bo situated somewhere abovo Twen
tieth street, would it not bo well for our
receivers and forwarders to look into tho
manner and means by which tho freight
that will como into Cairo on this road Is
to bo transferred to thu stores, warehouses
and wharfhoats, all of which aro situated
in tho lower part of tho city. Commercial
avonuo will, of necessity, bo thu street
over which tho groater part of this traffic
will pass. Anyono conversant with tho
depth and consistency of Cairo mud on
this ktroet during tho winter season, is
awaro of tlio difficulty experienced by
drays and wagons in hauling over it,
thereby increasing tho cost of trans
ferring good stheroon oxtra cost of dray-
ago, wear nnd tear on horse and wagon,
and lastly, and tho most important consid
eration of all to business men, lots of timo.
Under tho present condition of tho street
doublu tho timo and doublo thu money
will bo required to transfer tho samo
amount of goods that would bu required on
a good street. Now, It is patent to every
observant business man, that those aro
points which wo havo to tako into consid
eration, all things elso requisite to tho die.
posal of goods being the samo as at other
points. It cannot bu donied that Cairo
bus ttdvantago with, and at times tho ad-
vantage over St. Louis, or any otlior mar
ket supplying the Southern trade, and
such being thu case It behooves our mer
chants to duly consider the two points,
cheap transportation and saving of time.
It Is expected by every one, and with
good reason too, Hut on tho completion of
tho C. and V,, B. R., tho tradu of Cairo
will bo, at tho least, doubled. So long as
Commercial avenue romalns in tho condi.
tlon it is, just so long will our trudo
sufiur, through our inability to guarantee
shippers cheap transportation at Cairo,
and quickness of tlmo in handling. Now
I propose that Commercial avenuo bo set
immediately In a condition that will ena
ble wagons and drays to taku full loads
both winter and summur, and I think It Is
tho 'place of our business men to bring
such Influence to bear on our city fathers
us will induce them to make this Improve.
