Central preferring to wait Airthcr devul

tho Ohl.t Ulrcr. This is nominally the
reafloti for a suspension of operations. It
Is not improbable, however, that want of
funds lmi much to do with it.
Well informed persons spoke In deris

tho start, claiming that tho Mississippi
Central lacked the pecuniary ability to
build n single nillo or it. "Tho suspen

was heralded everywhere, ''it was going
so low that tho Paducah chap saw that

All good citizens will rejolco that the
differences, existing between Messrs. Fox,
Howard A Co. and tho city of Cairo aro
in a fair way for speedy and amicable
adjustment. The sincere desire of Messrs.
F.,iliStVQi to effect an honorable and
liberal adjustment of their affairs with
tho city no one will any longer question.
They have acted most magnanimously
and we are more thau pleased to see our
city authorities disposed to meot them in
the same spirit. The Arm, to avoid lit!
gatloq that would be troublesome and
expensive to them (bat more' so to the
city) have consented to accept a rate of
Interest twenty percent, below thorullBg
rafe, and that muok less, too, than their
money would readily command should
tho city pay it to them to-day. They
not only do this, but consent to hold the
city's bonds (issued to them iu payment
of their claim) subject to redemption at
any time within two yearn at OOceoU
on the dollar! This is liberal in the.
highest defree,qtf certainly no citizeu
can regard It otherwise who is not In
favor of outright repudiation !
Tbe adjustment is most favorable to
tho city, and will, meet the cordial ap
probation of all reasonable men. Our
authorities are cntitlod to credit for so
manfully standing up for the latere. ts of
the city. Messrs. Fox, Howard & Co.,

Cairo, Illinois, Juno 11, 18.0. j
W. JJ. Howard, J-Jsj.:
Dear SirAfter carefully, considering
the contents or your answer tb!niy letter
to you of the 8th Inst , I am constrained
to ugain call your attention to the subject
matter of tho correspondence, and to
again ask, whllo recognizing tho spirit
of liberality which has characterized you
in this controversy, that'you" consent to
amend your proposition by accepting
eight per cent, instead of ten per cent.
Interest. It Is true,-tho Board, of Alder
men liavo adopted tho report of their Fi
nance Committee, nnd havo accented
your proposition; but the meeting of tho
Board was not full, and tho members ac
quiesced In the report only because they
believed ten per cent to bo your ultima
tum! I am free to. say to you, that I
would rather givo you ten per cent, than
litigate with yon, and I believe the inter
ests of the city would bo better subserved
by this settlement than ly oootiuued
litigation; but many of our citizen, souio
of the n In their personal business rela
tions most scrupulously honest, men,
would bo exasperated by tho, settle
ment, and it would thus becomo n
thorn in our municipal body which
might result in disadvantage to you,
and whlcht undoubtedly, would inflict
great injury upon the city. I know thesw
local considerations may not havo with
you much force, but thero Ls another
point or view In which I ask you io look
at tho question. If you could obtain
twenty per cent, bonds, tho casual ob
sor'er might esteem you lucky; but such
would not be the cane. The high rate
would shatter tho credit of tlio city,
drain from It all tho currents of prosper
ity, and leavo it bankrupt, unable to nay

of your proposition will build up a party

will discourage .enterprise, aud forever
