It is n fact that ought to bo kopt boforo the
pcoplo, that the city of Cairo boasts of flvo
lines of packet steamers, that bring' to our
wharves tho people and products of tho
country from nil points of tho compass. It
behooves our morchunts, shippers and pcoplo
genernlly, to throw nil the business thoy can
in the way of tlio boats forming these lines.
Thoy am of incalculablo benefit to Cairo, ut.d
should bo encouraged in cvry possible man
ner. Tho llttlo steamer plying botwecn Cairo
nnd 3Icmphis brings numerous orders to our
merchants every trip, thus greatly adding to
our business, and widening tho knowlodgo of
tho fact that our markot, in point of prices,
can successfully compete with St. Louis, Lou-

THAT JIlTl'illAOf.S COAL MOKT.
Tho rejKirt that coal had Wen discovered
in Alexander county, near Santa Fo, given
through tho 'llulletin' several days ago, re
ceived Important additions, no doubt on its
way down to Cairo. At all events tho dis
covery is shorn of much of its vuluo by re
ports or n Intor date. Tho discovery made
may lead to "rich disclosures," but of them
selves nro important in so far only as thoy
servo to timulutu further examination and
inquiry. Excavations in tho sido of n hill, nt
the jKiint nnmed, revealed n spongy substnnco
resembling coal, nnd often found in tlio vicin
ity of fields of tho latter article. Beneath
this Biibstance was found what Dr. Harris
denominates gypsum. Of this thero was u
stratum two feet thick. Further soarch re
vealed n bituminous deposit resembling coal
in the but process of formation. Xenr the
samo locality specimeus of pure anthracite
coal were found, but as there were no evi
dences of its oxbtenco in quantities any whero
in tlio neighborhood, tho conclusion was form
ed that thoy had been deposited wlieru found
by somo designing party anxious to drivo a I
profitable land trado.
The examination now in progress will pro
bably determine, in a few day., whether or
not wo havo bituminous coal in Alexander

It is a mattor of surprlso that Cairo, nnd
