Hut, In conversing with citizens of Mem
phis, wo llnd that many of them are beguiled
by tho talk of a bridge at Paducah, and
hence, wo desire in conclusion, to mnko a
brief examination of this wonderful bridge
talk, to ceo exactly what it W worth. In tho
first place, thoro i no hrldgu at P.tducah. She
had a charter for ono, it Is true, unci overyono
knows Just what n naked charter is worth :
simply nothing at all, us charters may bo had
any where for tlie.nsking. Secondly, wo liavo
it, on good authority, that it would bono moro
dinlcuH and no moro oxponslvo or
rostly to bridge tho Ohio at Its mouth than to
do so at Paducah.
However, all this is upon tho supposition
that n bridgo is necessary to this enterprise,
while, in point of fact, it is not oven desira
ble. AVo all know, that nil southern roads,
with unimportant exceptions, nro of tho llvo
foet gauge, while those north of tho Ohio aro
four feet, eight and n half, and four feet, ton
Inches. In this statu thoro Is ono tlx feet
road all tho rest lour feet, eight and n half
inches; and by statuto tho ata(o has forbidden
any departuro from that guage. Thus wo
scolhoro wjll of necessity, bo a breaking of
bulk wherever tho road readies Illinois,
whethcral Pailucah or elsewhere, and a
bridge, even if built, would, therefore, bo of
littlo advantage to anybody. Ilut, in addition
to all this, every ono, at all conversant with
such matters, is awaro that cars can bo ferried
across any considerable stream, nt a less annu
al cost than tho mere interest on tlio bonds ne
cessarily issued for tho construction of the
bridge, and that tho only inducement for
roads in tho north to bridgo streams like tho
Misis!ppi or the Ohio, is tho fact that Ice
blockades render tho ferrying of Cars imprac
ticable during a larger portion of tho year a
cogent rca.on)nt Dubuque, but not at all appli
cable at tho mouth of the Ohio. Thus wo sco
tho bridge nrgumcnt, liko tho bridgo itself, is
visionary, nnd without any foundation.
To the mind of any ono who will examine
tho subject, thoro can bo no inducement what
ever for Memphis to build this proposed rail
road to any point except the ono indicated
whero it would at oncomcot with tho bet pos
