"TJIE PEOPLE WILL XOT SUMMIT."
Tiicro nro people who affect Mm belief that
thoro nro points boyond which tho tyranny
nnd usurpations of tho dominant party daro
not go. Thoy spoak of a "sleeping Hon"
among tho peoplo that will nrousa itself; and
cnuso despots and tyrants to qunko nnd from
bio. "Tho people," thoy fay, "will rise In
their might and by tho iharp process of tho
sword, if need be, assort their rights as free
men nnd sovcsclgns." Hah, ;to such arrant
humbuggeryl Tho peoplo will enduro any
nnd ovorything. 'Crush them, and they will
not display tho spirit of tho worm, to turn
and sting tho heel that bears them down.
AVhnt greater measure of wrong cun bo
conceived, than has been endured ulready?
A minority that maintains iUolf in power by
tho most flagrant abuses nnd usurpations that
ever blackened the political history of nny
enlightened country in tho world, rules tho
majority with a rod of iron, yet tho "peoplo"
submit without n murmur, btatos ore con
trolled by negro legislation nnd federal bayo
net j tho country groans under a great weight
of taxation; tho public treasury is robbed and
plundered j yet tho peoplo sit with folded
arms and spenk of a point beyond which theso
evils nnd abuses daro not vcnturol
Tho dominant party will halt at no meas
ure, however odious or tyrannical, through a
fear of public indignation or resistance. It
has seen tho peoplo quietly submit to griev
ances and outrages that would have deluged
uImot any other country In blood it ha
seen them oven kin tho hand that smote them.
Talk about resistance, a revolution among
such n peoplo I It it foolish ; preposterous in
tho highest degree.
C"'niro has usurped jowors; has violated
every section nnd provision of tho constitu
tion ; has abridged mid destroyed prcildcntl.il
prerogatives; has of its own might, risen su
perior to the supremo court, and set at defi
ance the odieU of that exalted tribunal yet
tho people submit and scarcely murmur.
Away, then, with all this balderdash about a
cure for the ovil of our government, n check
for radical excesses resting with tho pcoplo'l
Tho people have already suffered oppression
ns irn wrongs as glaring and monstrous as
any the future can have in store for them.
Come what may they will bear it. "The
straw that breaks the camel's back" may be
laid upon them, and there will bo no hand
stout enough or heart bravo enough to attempt
At such a juncture general Grant may give
himself Immortality a tho benefactor of the
white American eoplo. He understands tho
ureut danger thai lurks in tho radical doc-
trluuof negro equality; he appreciates the
disastrous consequence of subjecting tho civil
to the military power; ha too tho enervating
Influences of negro and carpet-bagger domina
tion in tho south; and knows wherein the
party In jwwer has over-ridden and hold for
nnught the sacral provisions of tho constitu
tion of our fathers. Let him, then, a tho
cxecutivo of the people, stand by the people;
correct tho wrongs that radical hnte and vin
dittivone have heaped upon the people of
tho south; vindicate theoonstitutlen, and take
it as his chart and compass in shaping the
course of his administration ; recognize tho
equality of the state and their rights under
our greut magna charta, and bury the parti
san in the ktntopinHii let him do this, and tho
peoplo will again hold up their heads, and
have high hopes of a future career of happl
ness and prosperity, and of regaining their
K-lf-respect and the proud name abroad, of
which radical tyrannies, tiMirpntiotn and ex
cesses had well nigh divested thorn altogether,
CAIRO ANJ MEMPHIS.
THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER. RAILWAY.
The Termini of that Thoroughfare.
The Voice of .1Irui)il.
Krom the Memphi. Avalanche.
Tho Cairo 'llulletln,' a paper edited with
considerable ability, and wide awake to tho
interests of the peninsular city in which it is
published, has, in a recent Issue, a well-con-sidcrcd
article on railroad connections with
this city that may be read hero with interest, j
and not without profit. AVe disclaim any
indorsement of its disparaging flings at tho
rival city of l'aducah, which, though without
present railroad facilities, savo the tingle
stem mentioned, is awakening to thoir im
portance", and manifesting no small degree of
enterprise to bo employed in tho near future,
ltallroad movemonti appear to bo predomi
nating everywhere, and those localities may
expect to reap tho most benoflt that are oarli
est In thoir operation and perfecting impor
tant connections. Tim 'Hulletln' opens its
article thuswise, congratulating Memphis that
it did not listen to tho seductivo promises of
thoso confederated with a rival interest, and
offering advice it would bo well enough to
heed. It says, in Its "talk tojdomphians
nbout railroad matters :"
"Tho action of tho city council of Memphis
In refusing to surrender tho railroad future of
tho city to colone Tato'e.rlng, which Is labor
ing in tho interest of tho pockets of Its mem
bers and l'aducah, a littlo out-of-tho-way vil
lage, lying on tho Kentucky shoro of tho
Ohio, half a hundred miles frpm Llii. city, was
wise, and proves that tho member of that
lody are, competent to resist the soductlvo in
fluences of monoy.
"Whilo this is trtio, jtia honed that tho lato
agitation of railroad matters m Momphls may
havo awakonod tho sagacious business men of
that hitherto prosperous city to tho noccssity
which exists for an oxtonslon of its railroad
connections, and especially for tho opening of
a lino northward, through tho northwest a
section which must always bo its great feed
er, but ono with which it has now no avail
ablo railroad lino of intercommunication. It
behooves tho peoplo of .Memphis to examine
this subject and to decide at once, not only
upon tho most practicable means of securing
such a railroad, but also, and inoro especially,
upon tho best routo on which to build such'a
"Tho first project for the Mississippi river
railroad contemplated making Cairo the tor
minus, Instead of striking at l'aducah as tho
most eligible connection with tho great north
ern routes, anu opening to tho trauo with this
city a region second to nono in this or nny
other stnto in point of fertility and agricultu
ral production. True, this "openine: ' would
bo accomplished by tho proposed connection
with tho l'aducah clem, out would it be tho
most available for present and futuro advan
tage i -unai is tne question which comes homo
to us now. Tho Cairo 'Hulletln' prcsonts tho
answer to this question in a fory strong light,
and, as wo think, on impregnable grounds. It
""In all that has been said or written on
upon this subject thoro seems to havo been a
kind of tacit understanding that Memphis
could gain tho desired end most effectually by
going to Pnducah, and hence, as wo hold, that
city has fallen into a very great error. Let
tho render oxamino tho map and ho will see
that l'aducah is a littlo town on tho Ohio
river, fifty mile from "Its mouth, of no im
portance commercially, or otherwise, citUut
one foot of railroad, if wo oxcept the sixty
miles that run from that point to Union City,
In Tcnncsnee. "What, then, is Memphis to
gain by going to l'aducah? Sho has nothing
whatever to offer as a terminus for a Memphis
road ; sho has no railroads to tho north or
east, and, so far as wo can learn, has no char
tor even for any of the vrjoted air lines north
of her airlines which are all air. There
port so industriously circulated, by thoso in
interest, that the Cairo and Vlncenncs rail
road company intends constructing a branch
to l'aducah is entirely without foundation, ,as
wo learn authoritatively from a director of
that company with whom wo havo recently
conversed. It will be seen then, at a glntice,
that there is no inducement whatorer for
Memphis to terminate its proposed road at
l'aducah, and that it might, with equal pro
priety, select nny other littlo Ohio river town
as its terminus. In building n road, the Mem
phis peoplo should havo but one object in
view, viz: tho development of that city" re
sources the good of Memphis; and this, of
course, can be best promoted by building a
road in the direction which will soonest, and
at the least cost, secure valuable connections
with the northwest and east. Tho road, If it
is of nny advantage to Memphis or its stock
holders, must seek other roads as feeders to
itself. Wo all know how utterly worthless is
a railroad without connections beginning at
nothing and ending nowhere."
Vhilo wo do not enter tho slightest objec
tion to the junction of the proposed route
with the road that extends from l'aducah to
Union City, we admit the forco of reasoning
so-clearly set forth byourCairo cotcmporary.
That which will bo of most boncflt to our
city will bo tho close connection formed with
the counties north of us; the benefits to tho
road Itself are thus discussed by that paper :
"Let the reader again look at any standard
map, and ho wilt see that the only arailnblo
route for thls enterprise is directly to tho
mouth of tho Ohio river, from Memphis, by
which routo that city socures, at once, the
most desirable communications possible, gain
ing immediately everything which l'aducah
oiler in tho misty future, and vastly more.
Let us sec. On tho way to the mouth of the
Ohio, from Memphis, we reach, at Helmont,
the southern terminus of the Iron Mountain
railroad, now almost complete, connecting
thence directly with fit. Louis and all the net
work of Missouri railroads. At tho terminus
the Memphian will find both rivers (tho Ohio
nnd MissUsippi) Instead of ono; the Illinois
Central railroad, stretching ono of its arms
to northwest Illinois, lowu and Minnesota,
and the other to Chicago and to the east by a
half dozen routes, whilo tho now line frbm
this city to Indianapolis is being rapidly built
undor tho auspice of tho Pennsylvania Cen.
tral, tho wealthiest of all American railroad
corporations; ind, beforo the closo of tho
year, will furnish another most valuable con
nection.' If advantages nro to nccruo from tho con
nection to l'aducah, thu enterprise of its citt
zon will extend their road to join tho Cairo
stem, in which case the course of trade and
travel would tend that way, when tho connec
tions aro completed and'tho brldco built of
which so much ha been said. Tho Cairo
'Hulletln' docs not leave this part of the
proposition untouchod, but maintains its argu.
ment to make Cairo tho terminus with a vigor
worthy of respect if not admiration. Its re
marks aro based upon very accurate informa
tion, and should bo well considered beforo
"entangling alliances" Bro consummated.
Wo omit tho quotation from tho 'Bulletin
given by the 'Avalanche' in this connection,
as it substance is no doubt yet fresh in tho
mind of the reader.
In conclusion, tho 'Avalancho' says:
"Vo havo civen much space to this subteet.
but not more than its importance and the
general Interest that should ho experienced in
it demands. Tho olo remaining question to
be solved is: How much will Cairo and Its
railroad connections contribute to tho entor
Tho interrogatory horo propounded wo
shall tako occasion to answer at an early day,
contenting oursolvcs now with the remark
that, under a recent act of our legislature,
Cairo, and Aloxander county, of which jCairo
is tho county seat, havo authority to oxtend
corporato and county aid to railroad enter
prises outsido tho state. At tho proper ,tlmo
the response of Cairo will bo a subscription at
least in keeping with its ability and the im
portance of tho project in hand.
