OITICIAIi PAPER OF COUNT!' AM) C1TV
THE EVENING IlULLETIN.
Wo copy tiio following from n Into number
of thai sterling tlemoerntio pnpor, tlie Fndtt
cal'IIoruld': Tho Cniro 'Uulletia' is tho nainn of fi now
'illy paper published at Cairo, Illinois. J.
II. Obcrly Is its editor, with Moso Hnrrell ns
nsUtnnt editor. Tlii announcement is
tr-Midi to plnco tho Jlullotln upon high
grounds. Tlioy nro both gentlemen of tho
highest ability a. editors, and we vouch for it
that thov will mako ono of the best and iplci
cst pup'ora In tho west. Moo llarroll's
sketches of men and things nro Inimitable,
while Oborly' political writing nro amongst
tho boat mid most readnblo in alio wholo Held
cf political di"ciuiion.
"Vo had a great iloslro to bring both those
t.,c n to Paducitli ; but "they would not.' Wo
thought thoy would bu invnlunblu to our city.
Wo held out to thorn all tho inducements wo
wi ro alio to offer. Wo could not offer very
lar ely. l'overty and not our will or convic
tl u i)rcvcnted. Wo feel Miro that, llko
Ono l.lmtuixm their buxte li'.ni,
Were worth itthomnnd men."
It it wo could not accomplish our wihc,
and Cairo therefore retains two of tho Lost
rewspaper men that have ever struggled to
build up a city or to advance political truth.
V wish them great eucceit. They cer
tainly dworvo it. And wo lomrratulnto our
f. tc-rpriing neighbors of Cuiiu ujhjii tlie fact
t! .t tly have two editors who nro better
l. wn Ia Cairo, nnd who will glvo n riatno
ai I character t. tlieir city which u other
1 n In Amorica could do half o well or ef
L lively. If Cairo iImh not sustain them
i.. iko them rich honor themand feast n.d
drink them then flic will provo herself tin
wt rthy of having men of high talent and
genius a her editors.
While wo beJievo that our friend Noble,
led by guimine frluiidahip, bus goho too fur In
h'.i prai'eof ii', we nevertheless feel proud of
l.s g xwl opinion nnd thank "biro for the kind
w.rds which, ns wo crossed tho threshhold of
i" u w newspaper ontorprUe, he sent io us
ci ting. An editor, like a prophetl not
w.Ui ut honor, mvo in hU own country; nnd,
w regret to sny. even the jveople of Cairo
l ave not Imratoforu appreciated tho Inbers of
th' Ir editors s: u true valup. They have al
lowed thcnuelvw too frequently to give way
t d.fsatisfaetion and jKjtuloney. Crying
down what they hud, by dluouragomoht they
havu made pnbly goodjmpera bad, and bad
papers wur'j; ami, when tho end came, have
noways blamed ovnrybody but themelvo.
w.mt a good paper,'' they havo said time
nnd agnlu, nnd very littloUiany of the most
lufl.icntl.il men have done to make uny paper
go 1. Tho 'JlulMin,' we tako pleasure In
saying, recuivo a more heurty mpport than
nny rfiU predoeessors received; and yot, If
the ' looks ovor our advfirtiiinj: columns it
wi',1 tlnd absent from thm martv familiar
rari,p, the munes of Ihimucis men, who nro.
Intelligent enough to know that a city with
out a rnM is tint, stale and unprofitable, nnd
yot who refuse, lecaute tbuy aro stingy or
run !, to give their home organ tho lotut
rli-iug supjHrt, from which a pnperdraws
Its vitality. There, for instance, is mr. Ulunk,
wl.olsn grumbler. Hi: home paper nerer
p!vs him ; it is too small ; din-sn't conta In
en ugh matter; it not as ably 'edited ns It
fh ild l; and. even whilo h gritniblos, tho
fu. t becomes apparent that ho is one f tho fol
I ws who do nothing to enlarge the paper,
put niro matter Into it, or give to It the
inoniu of putting more labor upon its edito
rial columns; that, in short, if nil tho other
citiAii wore u. mean us he, no paper could
lUe in Cairo for an hour. Now, o far, the
'Bulletin,' as wo havo said, hot received a very
liberal support. Wo Iiojhj it may increase.
If so. in 11 short timo we shall bo enablod to
udd to tho proportions of our paper, and Im
prove It In many ways; but, if not If tho cit
L n refuso to h'dd up our hands, nnd expect
us to expend money, labor and health to main
tain an enterprise which they know Is neces
sary to the prosperity of the city but which
they do not support, we shall tarry with them
only u little time and thon fold our tent liko
thf A rab and as quietly pass away from news
paper life. Hut there 1 no danger. Tho peo
plo of Cairo will support tho 'Hulletin,' nnd
tho time is coming when it will bo above dan
ger, powerful and absolutely independent of
the whims of the unrullablo public, u neces
sity to ovury onterpriking citizen.
In another column wo copy an item of inter
esting railroad nows from tho Metropolis
'Times.' Tho representative from Mussac
county has in hand 11 charter for n ri'.ilroud
from -Metropolis to intersect the Cairo and
Vlnceunes road near llarrisburg, r.nd to run
thence to, St. Louis. Tho proposed incorpor
ators nro col. Brown and capt. Willis, of Me
tropolis, general Kruiiu, and general Burnsido
and his money partner, from tho east. Tho
'Times believed that colonel Brown and cap
tain Willis will rcpresont tho interests of Me
tropolis, but ffura that tho other incorpora
tors will muko an effort to establish tho Ohio
river terminus of tho road nt ft point opposite
I'aducah to intorsoct tho proposed southern
lino nt that plneo. Wu bclievo tho proposed
southern lino from Pudueuh will novor becomo
n fact, but Metropolis should not go to sleep
and let railroad rings swindle hor out of hoi
Just dues. If n railroad is constructed to in
torscct tho Cairo and Vineennes railroad, its
river terminus should bo nt Metropolis. IV
ducah might then, tho 'Times' suggests, build
i ad to tjio mouth of Mnssao creek, on tho
'. - .uky side of the Ohio, nt ft cost for rail
bed of only n couplo of thousand dollars. To
build u road bed on tho Illinois sido from
Metropolis to a point opposito l'aducnli,
would coat nearly ifnotnuitv fifty thousnnd

Tho I'aducah 'Herald' is Incensed against
