CAIJIO AND PADUCAH.
Tho following brace of paragraphs wo
clip from tho Paducah 'Kontucklan:'
"Wo ask our renders to notico our Cairo
correspondent's letter In to-day'a issue.
Ho Is a well known citizen of Paducah,
who Is temporarily in Cairo on business.
It will bo seen that tho cltlzons of
Caljoaro fully awako, and up to tho
times in tho great Internal Improvement
project that are In contemplation.
What aro wo doln In Paducah with a
thousand natural advantages over
Cairo? Will wo sleep upon tho idea that
we have nothing to dothat nature, In
her liberality, im", given uu tho position,
and if other don't seo it, It will be their
loss, until Cairo, through tho libera
enterprise of her citizens, had secured
her connections and rendered Pudiicali
projects worthless? It looks Homethlng
like it. , , ,
Wo havi), In Cairo, a number of enter
prising, liberal, public-spirited citizens
of whom we feel proud; but tho samo
cause for Inaction, ugalnst which our
contemporary warns tho citizens of
Paducah, has existence In Cairo. Wo
have, in times past rolled, and do now
rely, to Implicitly on th collect of that
arangement of natural that designates
our locality as tho railroad aud
river center of tho Mississippi
valley. Tho advantages we possess must
be employed; capital and energy must
turn them to profitable acctunt, for, ' of
themselves, thoy will not build up hero
tho great central emporium that Is to
grow into being somewhere in this vast
valley. Woare gradually discarding tho
Idea that uch will bo their fruiU any
how; but wo are notyetsulllclontly sen
sible of tho fact thnt tho futuro growth
of Cairo Is dependent upon tho enter
prise and liberality of its citizens. Our
advances mint bo used to our advan
tage; and where they aro not, in them
Helves, Insuperable obitacles In the way
of rival Itworeits, w must bring capital
aud effort to their aid, aud tnnkw them
so. Wo havo never, for a moment, de
spaired of the futuro of Cairo. We havo
always believed that It Is destined to be
come the leading commercial and man
ufacturing city of tho valley of tho Mis
nlaslpol; but we havo always thought as
wo think now, that tho day of her great
ness will bo hastened or delayed accord
ing to the measure of action, sensible,
wisely-applied action, that Is put forth In
Wo have no disposition to build up
Cairo by pulllug down Paducah. Had
nature iutondud Puducah to amount to
anything It would have located her neur-
trtti mouth of tho Ohio! Wlien thai
town reaches out her greedy hands to
clutch to herself "tho things" that un
doubtcdly belong to our "Cassar," why
then wo feel disposed to smack her
knuckles; but not otherwise.

The 'Natloual Intelligencer' pro

mediocre men bear sway, nmko npeeohes
and inflict labor uud capital with their
rapacity and their blunders."

Exchanges from all parts of the coun
try furnish us dally tho most terrible
and sickonlug accounts of deaths by by-
irophobla. On Baturday last Mr. Wil-
lam G. Goodwlllle, of Chicago, died in
agony that no pen may describe The
vapor baths, heavy potions of Intoxica
ting liquors, all tho remedies prescribed
as "inrauibie cures" woro .trieu, out
without effect. A reporter of the Chicago
Times' thus describes tho appearance of
tho young man, a fowjliours bofore death
came to his relief:
His skin was drv and smooth, his eves
glassy, and protruding from his head In
a wild stare that was sickening to behold ;
great gouts of foam wero vlsiblo oozing
from his mouth ; and yet, in spue 01 an
his torments, ho seemed to bo perfectly
sane, and cognizant of everything that
was going on about him. Ho would oc
casionally call loudly for water to quench
tho thirst that he averrou was consu
ming him inwardly, but when tho lluld
was brought, he would cry out lu torror
at tho sight of it. Ho onco asked for a
pieco or ice. and his attendants, hoping
that he could endure tho touch of that
article, procured a smill bit, but on be
holding it, ho was seized with parox
worse than ho had suffered when
u-jitcr was hroiiL'ht near.
Ho also manifested an uncontrolablo
deslro to bite and tear himself and every
prsou that approached him. TIiLj
frenzy no was wen aware 01, uiiu in inn
quieter moments, Would beseech his
friends to keep away from him, lest ho
should do them serious injury.
Notwithstanding the fact that there Is
no certain remedy for the horribly mys
terious bite of a rabid dog, and notwith
standing tho further fact that tho streets,
yards aud commons of Cairo aro infested
by droves of unmuzzled and utterly
worthless dogs, all liable to an attacic 01
hydrophobia at any moment, our citi
zens appear as perfectly uuconcerned as
If the value of human mo, or the ago
nies of a terrible death, amounted to
nothing at all! Every day and erory
hour of tho day, a child, and now aud
then a grown portion, is bitten by a dog,
in some part of the city. Children pass
ing to and from school are bitten. Noth
ing U thought of the matter at tho time,
unless the llwh is badly lacerated, and
oven oxtreme cases of injury, soon pass
out of mind. Who can say that tho vi
rus of hydrophobia has not been injected
Into the system of some citizen, young
or old. by dog bites, that are now quit
foniotteu? When the appalling truth
tuat hydrophobia is in our midst, Is told
to us by the dying convulsions of somt
or our children, fathers, mothers, sisters
or brothers, then and not till then will
wa arouM ourselves to measures of pro
from th Cinolanatl Ou tte.J
The other afternoon, under the tent
which Is pitched on the asylum lot, quite
a largo audleuco was Invited to witnosi
the riding of a little girl, who, It was an
nounced was only seven years old. Mr,
Dan Rice Introduced both her and her
horse to tho spectator?, saying, as he did
so, that tho horso was unused to tho ring,
and If it should happen that tho rider
should fall, no one need entertain any
apprehension of serious accident, for the
arena was soft and Injury would bo Im
possible. It was surely an assuring la
troductlou for the child, and calculated
to inspire her with woll-fllled confidence.
Tho child whirled rapidly round tho
ring two or three times, using nolther
rein nor blndlngstrap. She stood on
one foot, then ohanged on tjqq other.
After this, she w&a called upon to jump
streamers. Had her horso been woll
tralued. the feat would havo been no
Lvery difficult ono. .But she became en
tangled 111 mo mom, aim .011 iu tun
ground under the horse's feet. She was
placed again 011 tho back of tho horse,
and compelled once more to try the feat.
Her fall had not given her new confi
dence, and bho tell a second tlno.
Evidently much against her In
clination, and lu spits of her
trombling and her tears, uature'u pro
tested against barbarity, she was tossed
again to her place. Rut hor nervo had
gone. Bho was utterly demoralized.
Judgment of distance, faith In herself,
wero lwt. Again she attempted to ex
ecute the leap. Again she fell to the
ground, this time striking heavily upon
her head. She rolled directly uuder tho
horao's feet, and only by sheer chanco
escaped a terrlbledeath. Tho authorities,
more merciful than thoso within tho
ring, by this tlmo became thoroughly
aroused and Indignant. Cries and
shouts wero heard from nil quarters:
"Hlnme," "shame " "That'll do."
"Take her out," "tako her out," camo
from every side. It would not answer to
disregard suoh commands, and with a

Then tho clown-proprietor, Dan Rice,
stepped out. When with an exquisite
sense of propriety, ho mado tho accident
tho occasion for a dirty pun of yulgarlty,
too indecent for publication.
