tho following Inquiries: .
Upon what terms will the city permit
tho railroad company to run a track, or
tracks, from a point on tho present road,
say 2,000 feet back", through tho city to
the river bank, and construct above or
below tho last named point un inclined
plane 1,000 feet in length, sous todescend
from the level of high, to the. level of
low water mark.

be permitted to lie aguliibt tho bank,

X Upon what tenuH will the railroad
company's boat bo permitted to transport
through freight and passengers across
tho river to tho railroad In Belmont.
4. Upon what termB will steam or
other boats bs permitted to discharge or
receive frelghtronveyed over the Mobile
and Ohio railroad.
Tho reply of the Council was that the
city would glvo free right of way, free
inclined plane, the rlrlit to keep wharf
bout free, and transfer railroad freight
and passengers across the river free to
Cairo or any other point not exceeding
twnnty-flvo miles from Columbus, aud
on certain conditions, would give free
use of iter wharf for all rallroadaiid river
business for a term of years.

The Cairo and Paducah papers are
quarreling. Tho causo whereof is tho
question whether Paducah, which is an
Insignificant hamlet at the mouth of tho
Tennessee, or Cairo, which Is an Insignif
icant hamlet at the mouth of the Ohio,
is the better tobacco market. Ten plugs
of "dog-leg" reached Cairo during the
season, and tho enthusiastic natives havo
been Illuminating tho town ever since.
Paducah snatched a dozen plugs, and de
mands the champion belt (or that steam
boat landing. But It Is understood that
tho Calroltes will prove tho two extra
plugs to have been brought to Paducah
byvastraggllng circus, and "chawed" on
the spot by the eminent artists attached
to that lino moral entertainment. This
places both towns on a level, aud leaves
nothing to quarrel about. It now re
mains for Paducah Ui get bno of the elder
Weller's "alleybls" and establish that
the circus wasn't on tho spot. Other
wise; Paducah s chances are till, Cairo
and Paducah are too small to c ealo a
first class sensation, unaided. With a
little Improvement In morals, they
would make respectable surburb for
Memphis, and if our mayor nod alder
men ever finish their little quarrels, we
suggest sending up a tug aud bringing
both towns down. It would bo rather
rough on Memphis, wo admit; but it
grieves us to see these little dots on tho
map cxnausting eacu oiner to no pur
pose. The above Is "fair1 asn satlrlsm, and
we glvo it as u "prettygood thing." The
idea that Cairo and Paducah, with a
little . Impiovcmetit In morals, would
make respectable suburbs of Memphis is
"quite good." The 'Avalanche' aimed
to deal In extravaganza, and felt assured
that it could excito "the laugh" when it
referred to .Memphis morality; and it has
done so. If there is any thing la tho
world that is latighab ly absurd, that
I thing is the dial m of respectability In
. morals for Memphis. The suggestion
that Cairo improve her morals before
! vonturlng association with Memphis as
suburb?, is quite thoughtful. Tho wick
edness of that modern Sodom would con-
laminate and probably sink Cairo, or
any other town that Is not an absolute

It never haa occurred that the people
of Cairo have Joined In a general cele
bration of tbe Fourth of July. We do
not know that if would be pi or pleasant
to do so, but quite a number of our peo
ple are anxious to make tbe experiment.
Heretofore tbe celebration of that day
has been engineered by the different so
cieties. The people, following tbe bent of
different Inclinations, divided into
several crowds, one crowd staying in tho
clry, another crossing the river and a
third going off ou a steamboat ride. Now
a consolidation of these crowds, a barbe
cue dinner .In the neighboring woods,
music, speeches, dancing, etci, would
give all of us a better Idea of the glory of
Did day. Let us try it next year, and see
if it doesn't.
