tlonn Wo New Orleans would receive
from tho construction of tho proponed
Now Orleauonnd Ship iHland canal. It
Ih shown thnt vessel enter at New
York for ouo fourth aud at Boston for
one llfth tho cost Imposed upon vessel

innrkctl diH'ercnco. Upon a ship of 1000
toiH the charges at Ronton aro "5-WJ9.&0;
at New York, $570, and at New Orleans,
If this obstruction to trade Is tho re
sult of monopoly, New Orleans muht he
content to see the general prosperity of
tho city sacrificed to the utl vantage of a
few privileged persons, and cannot com
plain If the commerce whleii U legiti
mately her own pnt Into more liberal
hand1!. Pur, U-yoiid all depute, If an

seekt the former, notwithstanding the
long railway traiuportlou It muni en

Tlie happy olivet of a ship ennui would
be todlmlnlsh the txirt elmmen in pilot

shippers of the cheupuoM of freight on
the western waters, as compared with
the traut-portatiou acroM the country by
railroad Mure than this; a considerable
advantage in time for articles of small
bulk would be seotired. Freight sent
through the ehijt canal to .New Orleans,
aud by the Jaeksuu and Memphis rail
roads, would roach Cairo nx uon as it
can now reach New Orleans from tho
Utilize. The trade with the Went Indies
which would be entiled luto existeuco
would Itself pay for the canal.
Hurcly there is no one matter of moro
vital consequence to the commerce of

Tho citizens of Rullurd county a-em-'Jed

on the lth ult., to givu uxnreeeiou to
their sfiitimuuM ujioii tho pending ques
tion of negro testimony In Kentucky.
After organizing a, committee of four
was named, which reported, among
others, tbufollowlug resolutioua:
Resolved, 1st. Thut it is Mir slncero
conviction that the whole bchemo of
modern "Negro Testiniouy," Is opposed
to the sjilrll and letter ol our National
Constitution, to the teachings of the great
Democratic party, aud to every princi
ple of enlightened public policy.
2. That wo regard all tne arguments
for tho admission of the negro to the
witness stand as utterly fallacious, and
therefore unworthy of serious Investi
gation. Its advocates certainly support
:i J rinclple that Is antl Democratic aud
unconstitutional. They fall practically
to recognize tho natural autagonhm of
the African and Caucasian races. Tho
"new Mtatu" of tho ueirro cannot bo
made a reasonable argument for negro
testimony. Nochaugt'of circumstances
can subvert or modify si fundamental

Tho Memphis papers are considerably
exercised lest Cincinnati, Louisville,

In pushing forward tlip Southern Pacific

"Cincinnati, too, Is looking to her In

Memphis only is atn stand still. Except
the little that Is doneoa the Little Rock
road, there Is, positively, no effort being
made that can bo construed into aid to
the through Pacific Railroad, that all ad
mit Is necessary to our continued exis
tence as a city. We aro being rapidly
distanced In thin. and other things, be
cause our people feed upon tho vanity
that our position gives us a commanding
pro-emlneuce, and will of itself force for
us what other peonlo have to work hard
for. They aro likely, Bhortly, to he
awakened from this pleasant dream, and
very abruptly. Railroad" , which accom
plish everything now-a-days for commu
nities, that break ho ruthlessly all tne
best made calculations, are building up
cities where there Is no Mississippi, and
investing with a grand future, points on
the "plains" that but a few months ago
were the haunts of tho butlalo aud tho
red man. The same results will follow
In Arkansas and Texas, and to our ben
efit if wo but make tho effort If not,
then, for the benefit of the cities we havu
named, increasing the chances against

obstacles to those we already have to en
counter. Wo must be up and doing.
While wo havo u favorable position our
trade is utmost exclusively the work of
railroads, to bo increased by other rail
roads, like that to Solum aud that to
Cairo, aud theone that overshadows all,
as it will benefit all that to tho PaclUc

In this samo direction there is some
thing for the people of Cairo to do. They
must fcecure, while they may, the north
eastern terminus of the Cairo and Ful
ton railroad, which road will eventually
be a portion of the houthcrii Pucltlc. The
terms are such as they can accept with
out imposing a burden on themselves or
their posterity. The heavier burden
would come, In truth, as tho fruits of it
refusal to accept. Let us be alive, then,
to the chances of the times, aud avail
ourselves of such as promise us good re
sults. Tilt: ILLINOIS PENITENTIARY.
The press of the State arc denouncing
In unmeasured terms tho present man
agement of tho penitentiary. It is al
leged that the convicts roam about the
city of Jollet at will, play poker, fceven
up, auction pitch, etc., from day-dawn to
dark, and openly avow a purpose to "cut
the heart out" or any man who attempts
to drive them to work. The discipline is
most reprehenslbly lax, being of u char
acter that converts the prison Into a
mere club houso where scoundrel- inettt
aud mature piano for future villainies.
This is all the result of putting tho
high moral Ideas of radicalism Into prac
tice. A Christian association Is said to
embrace ehven hundred out of the six
teen hundred convicts now in the peni
tentiary. And these christian convicts,
full of pious zeal, during their devotion
exemplary "Suuday meu," are relieved
from much of the prison restraint which
tho "uuchauged" und "uncoavorted"
convicts are made to feel constantly.
They aro given the liberties of the streets
and tho prison yards, have a nice time of
it generally, and why shouldn't tho piou
creatures "cut the heart out" of any
man who might attempt to make them
feel thoy are convicts and subject to pen
Tlio attention of thu governor ha been
called to the abuecs complained of, aud
it is thought that ho will lusiet upon such
u change as will make further hypocriti
cal pretentions of changed hearts, on
tho parr of the prisoners, unnecessary
a change that will make the peniten
tiary a horror to evildoers, becau.e of
the strictness of its dlaelpllno, and tho
absenco of all social aud physical en
Joyments INDIAN A fit 6 CITIES.

Tho Junction City 'Union,' in uu arti
cle deploring the recent Indian murder,
Wo once asked a private soldier of the
First Colorado, what Induced the ferocity
which churaoturUed their attack upon
thu Indluns at Sand Creek.
Ho replied that on their routo from
Lyon to Denver lived a family, who
kept a rancho. Tho family wero all par
ticular favorites of thlsreuimoiit. Once,
while, a t.quad wero returning from Dim
ver to the regiment, they stopped at the
house a usual. Upon stepping In at the
door, they discovered the children lying
around ttio door scalped aud their throau
cut. Tholr mother laid there also, scalp
ed, throat cut, body ripped open, aud her
entrals covering tier face. UlUany won
der that a few weeks afterward, when
that regiment came upon the Iudlausat
Sand Creek, sumo five or six hundred
Men who uro developing the country
and extending civilization, want white
neighbors. Ood never madu an Indian
to 11 vo In this day and gone ration. Every
thing points to tho belief that He isjouo
with them. There will be no peace until
they ore otT tho face of tho earth. It to
reasonable that thoy should not be. No
white man would submit to see his game,
hunting grounds and all, taken from him
aud himself crowded to tho wall, as ad
vancing settlement and civilization is
crowding tho Indians. Railroads, church
es and sohool houses must cover tho
counpry. They cannot bo stopped by a
few Indians, and all of them should havo
tholr light pill out.
Tho Quakers may as well go homo as
to bo hanging around Lawrenco ond
Junction City. They had better go any
way. If any moro scalps aro to bo raised
we hopo thoy will be of the Quak
er denomination. Not that wo have any
malice toward the Quakers, but that wo
think tho loss of a few Quaker scalps
would lend to give correct views of Indi
an nil ii Irs to tho world at large. Militia
