DAILY EDITION, SATURDAY EVENING, MARCH il, 1869. JOHN H. OBERLY & Ca
CMAttO liST) THE QUE AT WATER
Tho Mississippi river ntid its tributaries
furnish channels that cannot bo improved
upon for tho transportation of tho surplus
products of tho Northwest to tho best mar
kets of tho world. For ninny years tho men
and money, the overshadowing railroad cor
porations and commercial greatness of New
York, have compelled a largo scope of tho
upper portion of tho Mississippi Valley to
pay tribute to them ; but naturo is rapidly
reasserting itself, and bringing about an or
der of things In tho agricultural andcotniuer
c!al affairs of that section that must lead to a
more perfect independence and I greater de
grro of thrift nnd prosperity.
Of this dottlrablo chango wo hare evidence
that is strengthened daily. Now Orleans,
the lat great natural entrepot for tho sur
plus products of tho Mississippi Valloy in
tlitir transit to foreign markets, presents
wharves crowde I, warehouses full and mer-c-ntt
bur beyond precedont. And why?
IJ" a no thf great valloy is at its work of em
pi ymg iU element of greatness to tho ad
rari' nucnt of Its own glory. It is paying
legitimate tribute to its own cities and with
it. . l.ng it from the Atlantic seaboard. It is
tuir.g iti own channels of trade, provided for
it ly si munificent nature, and tearing itself
from th'-grap of railroad tyrants and des
pots that so long have held it in a vice-like
land. Its people Hf; din) v ring that their
off dollar is a rnluable as the dollar of tho
griiSjittg New Kngkndur ; and that by cm
) . j ng it in the importation of thoir supplies
via New Orleans and the "Great Pathor of
"Waters : ' or In the exportation of their sur
plus products by the same route, they uro
Luiiding up themselves nnd thetr country und
not the cities and people of the Hast. It is
m linger an uncertainty, but an ascertained
fact, that nature has provided our great val
ley with tho chenpet route to the bct mar
1; ts and the growth and prosperity of the
cjuntry will bo inesjsured by tho extent to
wh tin people patruiiko it. Appreciating

and f'T the importations seeking distribution

real will pour into our warehouses the con
signments St. Louis can no linger send for
ward by steamer, and bear from our ware
house her vast imjwrtatlons stopped here by
lho same inaurnwstintablo obstacle.
T) . is not mere conjecture; but a sober,

THE MISSISSIPPI ROUTE AND THE
i L'EEXS WAltB TEA l)E.
Thrt St. I.ouis -Journal of Commerce,'
-j-ikng of the Aiiporiority of the through
r i'- tirnihed by tho Mississippi river, saj
tbtt although satisfied of the ultimate general
r -glutton of that superiority, it "was not
pri-pjrcd to see Chicago merchants recognUo
It s i toon after tho Inauguration of tho grain
niov-niPiit. "We havo to announce tho fact,"
i; . ihit Journal, "that n representative of
oi.o ..f tho largest Chicago hemes passed
through .St. Louis this week on his way to
New Orleans to make arrangements for tho
rr. i-ipt and forwarding of rjueensware, via
New Orluan nnd tho Mississippi, to Chicago.
This admits that they cannot competo with us
in shipping via Now York and IJoston, and
of couro they cannot ship to Chicago as
cheaply us wo do to this point. This reminds
is of what our loading importing queenswaro
house, Chauncey I. Filioy, has always Insisted
upon, that this i, and is bound to bo, acknowl
edged tho best queenswaro market iu tho west.
So tho cheap freight systoni moves on, and
when the wholosalo houses admit tho fact,
thi-Ir oiwtomors will not bo slow to sea it and
net tn it also. St. Louis has greator facilities
to-day than any other city, and it is only
necessary to jhow thorn up."
What is said of St. Louis as n queenswaro
miirkut apjilios with still greater force to
Cairo. Tho house of Mark, l'arsons & Co.,
f this city, havo for soveral years Imported
ia New Orleans; nnd enjoying what St.
Vniis does not, constant water commimica
sn with Livorjieol, they have all season
ithir own. ami tho advantago of cvory
favorable fluctuation of tho markets or
freights. Two hundred inilca nearer tho
source of supply, with fijcilillos for distribu
tion enjoyed by no other city on tho continent,
Cairo, and not St. Louis, must In time, becomo
distinguished as tho great queenswaro market
In tho west. Messrs. 31. P. it Co. soil im
ported quoonsware, to-day, cheaper than any
other houso west of tho Allegheny mountains;
and no buyer can furnish them an involco
from any solvent St Louis houso that they
cannot nnd will not gladly duplicate. Pill
ing bills at St. Louis prices would bo a most
wclcomo business with them as it would add,
most certainly, from three to fivo per centum
to their present profits.
CAIRO, TUB SO VT1I I VE8TERN TEE
MINUS OF THE Oil EAT PENN
SYLVANIA OENTJiAL RAILROAD.
A GRAND ACHIEVEMENT.
Tho fact becoming known that tho Penn
sylvania Central Pnilroad,oncof tho wealthi
est corporations In America, had leased In
per(etuity, tho Vincennes and Indianapolis
railroad, a number of tho proinlnont citizens
of Paducah repaired to New York, for tho
purpose of diverting the great southern routo
via Cairo, over a lino through Paducah.
"With maps and profiles, a Ijbcral tender of
aid, and a proffer of a use of any or all tho
streets and avenues of their city, they rnado
a showing quito formidable for Cairo Interests
to assail. Thoy reprosented, too, that tho
corporate authorities of Cairo had perempto
rily refused to permit tho Cairo and Vin
cennes road (which is a link in tho southern
route) to enter tho limits of tho city, and that,
as it consequence, tho depots would havo to be
located and connections formed at a point
outside of the city that was under water dur
ing nine -months of tho your. "What might
have been tho effect of this showing we may
never know, for at tho moment when It was
most persistently urged, a dispatch was
placed in tho hands of the gentlemen repre
senting Cairo, to the effect that our corporate
authorities had decided to tender tho C. A' V.
It. H. Co. tho use of Commercial avenue,
whereby the obstacles urged by tho Paducah
intorests might bo overoomc, and the closest
and cheapest connection possible bo in ado
with the southern lines and tlV-owcr Missis
sippi! Tho welcome intclltgenc now reaches us
that negotiations are about perfected for a
perpetual lease of tho Cairo and Vincennes
road to the Pennsylvania Central, action ,in
the prcmUcs having been greatly hastened by
the act of our city authorities tendering
the use of Commercial avenue. This arrang
ment will make Cairo the southern terminus
of the Pennsylvania Central, and by proper
clTort on thrf part of our people, tho seat also
of its machine shops, workshops and foun
dries. An ample recompense, surely, for the
urrender of a portion of Commercial ave
nue, admitting (as we do not) that all tho lo
cal evils prophesied of, will be realized.

Whurcas, In pursuance of ordinance No. 3,
entitled '-an ordinance to provide for tho is
suing of $5,000 in Citv bonds to tho Cairo
and St. Louis railroad Company, passed at a
duly convened meeting of tho city council, on
tho 2nd davof April, A. I)., 18C0. ten alder
men voting for it and but two against it, after I
a report in it favor by a special committee of'
said council, vnd recommendation by the
Chamber of Commerce of the city of Cairo,
said ordinances having been duly'signed and
approved byT. Wilson, mayor, a bond fur
(5,000, payable In two years after date was
i.sued to said It. It. Co.," upon cviidition that
tho said sum of 13,000 should bo credited to
tho city upon any subscription that might
thereafter be made by it to tho stock of said
AN herbai, It is understood that the
proceeds of aid bond havo been uted to de
fray, in part, tho coat of tho survey of said
roa'd and tho expenses in procuring subscrip
tion to its stock, which subscriptions now
amont to 610,000, tho cost of said aurvoy
having been $8,219,09 und the other ospoiucs
$1,140,25, as has been reported to and appro

"Whoreas, Tho voters of tho said city of
Cairo, at a special election, held on April 30,

Whereas Tho whole amount of funds used
to pay for tho cost of tho surveys of said road
ana o'f procuring subscriptions amounting as
above specified to $0,353,1)4 bus been contrib
uted by tho twe banking institutions of tho
city, a few individuals and tho city of Cairo,
(through and by means of tho bond in ques
tion,) and in an enterprise of such general
benefit, it is iiroper that tho city nt large,
should contribute its share, nnd
"Whoreas, Tho credit of tho city requires
that Its obligations thus incurred in good
faith and after due consideration and delibe
ration, should bo promptly "and honorably
discharged, and an eil'ort to ovudo their pay
ment and thus ropudiatojutt contracts, would
not only bo a discreditable iiiipuatation upon
tho honor of tho city, but would ulso in this
instance greatly embarrass tho operations of
tho railroad company to whom tho guid'bond
was issued, both by reducing its pecuniary
means and depreciating the value of it bonds,
which tho city has promised to issuo in aid of
Its construction ; therefore, bo it
Kcsolvcd, That In the opinion of this
meoting tho city treasurer should bo, and,
hereby Is authorized nnd directed to pay tho
