OFFICIAL PAPKIt OF C0UT'AXI ClTf
"cm no jealous;
The Puducfth 'Herald' commends tlio fol
lowing "Jitufl" from tlio Memphis 'Sim' to tho
attf ntion of tho Cairo 'Jliillottn. To knock
tho shape out of nny air castle it may have
created it ij only necissary to remark that
tho -Memphis 'Sun' is tho organ of .Sum Titto;'
that it mission is to wrlto Tate up to tho dig
dity of si railroad king, and to aid him in the
ex'Hjswl purpoto of Dwindling Memjilils out of
legitimate and indispensable railroad privi
leges. We glvo tlie article from tin 'Sun'
Tlio Cairo Kvenlng 'Hulletin' repeat the
timeless story that General "West and Sam
Tate were interests 1 in tho proposed purchase
n'd ra'" of the city a t took in the .Memphis
and Little llock railroad. Tho paper also
put tho cart lx-foro the horo when it says
that (ieueral WutL was induced hv thn no-
y.i; f I'aJi:' all lu ntt'-mjit tho extension of
lis roail to that nine4. There is notliinc to
pre ent tiiat conitimmution, iiuvo that its
jiretent achievement U not so important as
the acquisition of another finished road lead
ing frjrn Hlfkiiiati to Na'hvillu. One thing
at a time, .Mr. 'iiulletin.' I'aducah must !c
c.mo an imixirtant railway center, and for
the reit'on tliut the Ohio nlay bo bridged- at
that point. To reach thn Northwest from the
Oulf Status, a network of roads will ultimate
ly converge at I'aducah. There, n single
bride is ri,uired. and neither the Cumb;r
land nor Tennessee river is to be separately
spanned. (ienerul West and Sum Tate did
propmo to connect .Mumplii and Paducali by
rail within six mouths, if puld for the ser
vice. This Memphis and I'aducah road will
bo built, and another, perhaps, on a line al-:r.-stparulli
l with it. itut those facts will
only add to I'aducah's wealth. It is very un
fortunate fur that great witter tank, come
times called Cairo, that its iieculiar location
and intervening twmnp. make the place in
a (ilV frni tli South, and equal) v unfor
tuna'.o that the Ohio canuot there bo bridged,
far the reason that tho Northern shore is sup.
pesed to bo lower than the bottomless pit.
Til.- iJea t which the 'Sun" gives exprea
iijt), tuat PuJucuh mutt liecotnu an impor
tant railroad eonfcsr Wnusc the Ohio river
can bo bridged at that point, is eminently
silly The Ohio ran bo bridged at ton thou
sand joiiit. eitiier altovc. or below I'aducah,
b t wf. ) is jlisk enough to suppose that at
t .icii cue of tlicH ten thousand tNiinU there
will grow up, a it consequence, '-an imjHir
tant railroad rvrit-r.-' The Ohl" can be
bridged at Cairo at muoh loss cost, and with
lot than two-thirds tlm pan, f.spiirM at I'a
I'., ah but to render Cairo a railro.td center
a bridge l nsftherdirol nor required.
What earthly purpose oould a railroad
! r.dgt at Padutah erve ' The railroads
traversing tho South aro of aditTorcnt guage
from those in the North, hence, if there woro
a hundred bridge at I'aducah, a train of oars
would never crot ono of them I To talk,
th' i f . nnei-ting two railroads, or two sys
tems of railroad, of different guago', by a
brvlgt, is to talk of th exondituro of a large
sum of money for a very foolish purjKo. It
will never lie done. No sensible capitalist In
the country lias a single dollar to aid u pro
cto ''iHxiou oven to common sense.
Furthermore, it there was u uniformitv of
gsiage characterising tho Northern and
Southern roads, l'adutah oould not more ef
fectually stab her vital intereta than by the
r nstnic-tion of :i railroad bridge that would
c.viatc the neculty of even a change of ear
within her limit. The bridge would complete
a Lt ntiuuuu lino of road, and I'aducah would
le a way point where train might or might
. otft 'p, as they do at Pulaski, or any other
way point bvtwtjen Cairo and Chicago. The
idgc would divast her citixens of any op
I - rtiinity to realize a dollar from the "hund-
"g ff any oxcopt local freights, bocauso tho
fr i-;'1' train, with closed doors, would dash
! v, i sibly without tendering thu compli-v-nt
of n whistle. And through passenger
who might, otherwise, stoit for a meal, or dur
ing a half day, would look out of the win
dows, as they whizzed by, and thank 1'udueuh
for that provision that obviated it halt for u
r l.ange of cars and dinner. Hut, as we have
.'iown, all this it not among tho probabilities.
There is no likelihood that uniformity in tho
gauge of Northern and Southern roads will bo
brought about, tuid consequently there is no
likelihood that a railroad bridge will bo built
Tho fiug at Cairo, in which Tate's personal
organ of tho 'Sun,' indulges, has been used
until it is threadbare, and is as foundationless
as threadbaro. Every diop of swamp water
to bo found on the delta upon which Cairo Is
built can bo corked up in nu ounce vial. Anv
senslhlo man who will give tho topography
of tho country u passing glance, will discov
er that tho 'Sun' man is moro facetious than
truthful. Ho will oo by that glanco that tho
Ohio, Mississippi fta oacho rivers furnish
drainage which render the existence of a
There never was tl foolish lie more perils
tontly urged than the lie that Cairo is ur
rounded by swamps. Kvery passcngor that
passes up or down tho Ohio, ms at least opti

that respect ; yet thero aro men, hero and
there, who prato about "Cairo wumpsV r.s If

DIllECT TRADE BETWEEN CAIItb
In his produce circular for December, Alex.
S. Macrae, leading Liverpool produce mer-
chant, discussed tlib'feaslbillty of direct water
communication between Cairo and Liverpool. !
Tho press of St. Louis awailed him with moro
osccrbity than tha occasion demanded, hoping
to accomplish by ridiculo nnd sarcasm that
which was beyond tho reach of nny facts of
which they could avail themselves. In his
January Circular Mr. Macrae replies as fol
lows: Having assigned a sort of navigable supro-:
macy to Cairo over St. Louty appears to have
roused the susceptibilities of two very influen
tial journals, namely tho St. Loul 'Hepublt
can, under date of Deccmbor 20, und the
Missouri 'Democrat,' December 21. They do
not charge us with "wilful misrepresentation, '
though with lively criticism and rather didac
tic diatribe, they use tho implication, "post
prandial glas," and tho words "credulity,"
"ignorance, ' "ludicrous mistakes," nnd other
remarks, all of which I accept with tho good

the "anumptlons" of a respected xjrtI',Ti of
the St. Louis press, they mutt pardon me, if I
rebuke with spirit, their ridiculing any at
tempt at economy in commercial charge.
Tho pen is their profession, but produce is
mine, nnd if they could see as I see, tho ex

countrymen's transactions aro subject to,
they uould laud, with editorial ability, and
not hold up to sarcasm, anybody, however

our very selves, and set an example as far as

sideration of tho quction of direct communi
cation may lead to Its certain development.
In dismUing the subject for the present, I
would aik tha 'Republican' and the 'Demo
crat" to examine themselves, ere they cross
pens with "Ignorance" again ; and inquire,
which has most occasion to hang its head, so
far as direct trade and steamcs. &c. aro con
