The Dispatches and Tin Bulls-
in. Our arrangements for publishing
the associated press dispatches
aro now nearly completed. In a
fow days, wo will give to our reader
as full tolegraphlc report as aro contained
in tho St. Louts or Chicago papors. This
step necessitates tho outlay, every month,
of about $300 in addition to our
now current expenses. A firm and abiding-faith
in the future of Cairo induced
us, nearly a year ago, to furnish our office,
at a cost of about $8,000, with a stcaai
printing press and othor improvomonts.
Tho samo faith as to tho manifest destiny
of this city, and confidenco in the liberal
ity and pride of it business men, induces
us now to anticipate the future six month
or a year by takiug the associated
prets dispatches. At that timo in the fu
ture wo feel suro that tho increase of busi
ness brought about by the influx of our
new railroads, etc., would warrant the step
wo are now taking. Our confidence ha im
pelled us to tako time by tho fore-lock, and
in a fow days we will present to our read
ers the Bulletin as valuablo, as a news
paper, as either tho Chicago or St. Louis
papers. We have no doubt tho pooplo of
this city will feel almost as much pride in
it as we do, and will holp to sustain our
effort.
